Dare to look away…

if you dare

I choose to walk away

evidence building 3

I choose to walk away

Away from the past, its hurts, pains and shame

I choose to walk away from the choices I made in the past

Choices that seemed so logical and beneficial

I opt for change, the willingness to embrace the future I do not yet see

I choose to part with my own understanding, the one that let me into that mess

I will depart from myself, the self that I trusted but got disappointed.

I’ve discovered a new me, a me that so pleases me

And I won’t let anything take that away from me.

From the Father’s Heart

More of you and less of yours

I need your heart more than your purse.

I need your presence more than you check.

I need your love more than your money.

You are not single

You are not single.

You are married to Jesus

One day He will lend you out for a season

To the man who dares present such a request

A faithful steward who will keep you in good shape

And present you to your husband when He comes to take you home

And if your Husband chooses to keep you jealously to Himself

Shout for joy for you are even dearer to His heart, most precious in His sight

And He knows you’ll never find a better husband than the one He is to you.

Choose compassion

If you are tempted to judge, label and condemn me, choose compassion

I may not be up to your expectations, but I’m on my way to perfection.

Think about your past, where God took you

Remember how you messed up but He still chose to love you

Think of how you felt the last time someone judged and tagged you

Remember how others have endured your wrong doing

Then ask of God a heart of compassion

Then choose to give out a piece to me

I may not deserve it, but I sure need it.

My supreme love

Thou O Lord art my supreme Love

No other can I love like thee

Thy love for me knows no bounds

And states no condition for me to reach

Whether I’m weary, whether I’m sore

Thou lovest me just the same

With thee I fear no break-up or divorce

For when I’m unworthy thou lovest even more

Give me a heart to love thee forever

For when all else fails to keep the promise

Thy unfailing love for me becomes my refuge.

The hardest part of Christianity: Living the crucified life

Featured image

If I’m sharing this, it’s not because I’ve crossed the finished line and can now turn around and mentor those who are still behind. I still have my own struggles in this area; but as I learn, I share to bless others.

What does it mean to live the crucified life?

  • Putting God first in everything I do. Not seeking my own pleasure first, but seeking to please Him first.
  • Always seeking to know what He desires and wants me to do in each situation.
  • Willingness to suffer rejection, humiliation, persecution and pain for His sake.
  • The willingness to accept His will even at my own inconvenience.
  • Acceptance that my own wishes, desires, will and pleasure are valid only if He validates them.
  • Refusal to take the glory for any victory won, but giving all the glory to Him.
  • The ability to say “Thy will be done”, from the very bottom of my heart.

Folks, this is the hardest part of Christianity and those who have attained to it receive of His spirit without measure.

May the Lord Himself help us to attain to such full stature so that we can indeed be His ambassadors on the earth.

When darkness reaches out for my soul…

When darkness like an invisible hand

Reaches out for my soul

When I cry for help

But my agony seems to fall

Very so often on deaf ears

Or ears that know not how to handle

When I feel like giving up on life itself

Because the road seems too dark and lonesome

And none but me tread such slimy path,

Then I remember that my Lord knows it all

He wants me well and whole and happy

He sees each tear that wets my cheek

And treads that lonesome path with me

Though I may not see him with eyes wide open

I know He is there because He promised to be

And then I find the strength to get along

Because Daddy is right there with me and for me

I will break into a new song and praise

For though my cheeks are wet with tears

My heart is warm with love unchanging

Thank you Daddy for being there for me.

Grace: Have you ever experienced it?

Featured image

Only those who have received of the grace of God are able to show grace and mercy to others. You can’t give what you don’t have.

If you have never known and experienced God’s grace, you could be unnecessarily hard on others because you do not know just how merciful God is.

When you open your heart to His grace he will pour out so much of it into your heart that when you open your mouth to speak, it is grace that will flow.

Grace is so deep, so unique that we tend to misunderstand it.

Sometimes we fight against grace (God) because we can’t handle the kind of blessing grace has bestowed on us.

Those of us who have always got it by hook, crook and work find it hard to just settle down to the fact that this time we got it all for free, by His grace.

Those of us who have messed up so badly in the past and have paid dearly for it find it hard to understand why God will just forgive us without us paying the price. (Jesus paid that price on the cross).

If you fail to understand grace you could spend your entire life fighting against God’s will for your life.

Knowledge of the grace of God will free you from a lot of headaches and heartaches in this life.

DO SOMETHING

DO SOMETHING
When the time seems to stop
And the clock ticks but stays on the spot
When you feel like the world and all its troubles
Stand but on your own little shoulders
Do something, just do something.

Sit not still and wish for death
Do not lie down and call for the dark
Question not the essence of living
Just keep seeing, thinking, breathing
For when it is over, it is not yet over.

Do something, just do something
Go out there and run it off your muscles
Sit by the river and think it off your head
Meet a friend and talk it off your chest
Meet your Friend and pray it out of existence.

THOUGHTS OF A HURTING HEART

THOUGHTS OF A HURTING HEART

I look in the mirror and I see my worst enemy
Staring back as if to mock
I turn round the corner and there she sits
Looking up to me with accusing eyes
And when I dare to look within
I meet a heart that bleeds and pleads.
She is in me and she is around me
How do I run away from her?
I will face up to my worst enemy
And make of her my very best friend
I will love my worst enemy
For my worst enemy is me.

Do not hate yourself because of what you are going through. Rather, love and cherish who you are and that will open up a door of possibilities for your healing.
