KINDNESS BLINDNESS


What if we all know the unknown?

What if your heart was mine, for a day or two?

Would you trade yours for my aching soul?

Tiptoeing through storm-tossed lives; blind.

Minding my own hurts and worry business

Blind and blank to the deep wounds of others

Coat of many colors, one common thread

The rich and the poor are not different

The good and the bad; different yet similar in…

Plaster this city with kindness and love

Your brush strokes evokes hope on my empty canvass

Please, don’t underestimate your smiles and compassion

The other day you flooded my heart with love:

I was on the brink of ending it all. [tears]

We are all actors on the same grandeur stage:

Playing the same kindness role, for a fantastic movie

How happy, the face of the Chief Director!

I-can-help

 

AMBUSHED


Do you believe?

Do you believe?

Ambushed by fantasies

Chasing, chasing; after the wind.

Stumbled;

Drowned in flames.

Burning in the ocean

Tears so hot and dry

Slippery road to hell;

Your love ambushed me.

Prisoner of  this world:

Clad in fig leaves, wasting away.

Turned my night into day.

Prisoner of life;

All I know is you

All I have is you

All I love is you.

I may not have a name,

But I have a name.

The day you changed my name,

The you in me made you me.

This mystery overwhelms

This freedom; priceless!

THE CHURCH IS BIGGER THAN YOUR CHURCH


That’s right, the church of Jesus Christ is bigger and larger than your local church! To be solely committed to a local church or denomination and turn blind eye to the real church is a serious cancer in Christendom. To say it in another way; “we are passionately sold out to denominational units, with zero passion towards Christ Church”. Joel Osteen…You can be committed to Church but not committed to Christ, but you cannot be committed to Christ and not committed to church”

And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. (Matthew 16:18)

        Mark Deverm; The church is primarily a body of people who profess and give evidence that they have been saved by God’s grace alone, for His glory alone, through faith alone, in Christ Photo Credit: www.kristendukephotography.comalone. This is what a New Testament church is; it is not a building. The early Christians didn’t have buildings for almost 300 years after the church began. The collection of people committed to Christ in a local area constitutes a church”. For over a thousand years, the Church has suffered under the excruciating pain of dogmas, denominational-ism, self centeredness and the pettiness, which so much divides us. Until we drop our unholy whip which has left painful scars of bitterness, division, isolation, rejection, mediocrity, stagnation and the personal vendetta, on our backs, we cannot be healed of our chronic spiritual ailment.

In summer of 2013, we threw an invitation to the christian community and the public, in the spirit of faith and brotherhood, for our annual spirit life picnic, to come and enjoy variety of food, fellowship, fun, and to connect with the community, all for the joy of Christ. A woman from a different Church or denomination was invited through our Facebook page. I felt very shocked for her response on Facebook. She wrote; “Would love to but I got Church”. We are one body. It is very unfortunate, how many people misunderstand the concept of Church. They consider the Church to mean their denominational affiliations and buildings. Friend, you and I are the Church of Jesus Christ. Christ is delighted with our magnificent buildings, where His beloved children are fed with the truth. His greatest satisfaction is not our buildings and programs. His contentment is found in me and you.

Martin Luther….”The church is not wood and stones, but rather, the company of people who believe in Christ”.

We are called into one faith, and we must endeavor to maintain the bond of unity in the Spirit. Apostle Paul writes to the Church at Ephesus, and this is what he had to say;3 Endeavor to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. (Ephesians 4:3-6 KJV)

Photo Credit: Google imageThere is no difference between the church in Africa or China, neither is there any difference between the Church on A street or M street. We are called into one body and function from the supernatural grace of the same spirit. Our hope and faith is in one God and Father of all. Friend, He is in us all. The kind of Church scripture paints is a family of one. Glory!  The tide is shifting on us!  We are the Nehemiah Generation, called forth to repair broken walls and build bridges which will bring us closer to each other to fulfill the Master’s task, on the common ground as family of Christ and not denominational enemies. Let us throw our denominational schisms and pull staff and financial resources to help our struggling brethren, who only need a push in the back. When we understand the big picture of God’s heart towards His Church, we will see the local and the universal Church from a different platform than the one we have been standing on over the years.

I was on my way to the picnic grounds with my wife as I mentioned earlier. We received a phone call from one of my Church leaders, who informed me that an unknown Church had already set up for picnic on the shelter we have booked for almost four months, prior to the day. I was very calm even though we have publicized this particular shelter through so many medium; inviting friends from the community and those coming from out of State. I told my wife, this is not any issue to be worried about, since it’s a Church of Jesus Christ, we can probably join hands with them and have fun, as brothers and sisters in Christ. I kept driving with no worries about all the inconveniences this will create, until another call came which made it clear to me that the picnic coordinator made an awful mistake when she did the booking . When I got to the picnic grounds, the other Church was already grilling, around 10:30 am.

      Charles Spurgeon …“A church that does not exist to reclaim heathenism, to fight evil, to destroy error, to put down falsehood, a church that does not exist to take the side of the poor, to denounce injustice and to hold up righteousness is a church that has no right to be. Not for yourself, O church, do you exist, any more than Christ existed for Himself”.

To make long story short, they were so willing for us to join them and have fun together as a family but the problem had already been solved by the facility managers of the park. This gestureGoogle image from this family (church) was exactly what Christ would have done if He was the Pastor of that Church. They had a proper perspective of what Church is. It’s not about your creed, color or race. It’s all about a family of God, with Jesus Christ as its first-born. The joys and elevation of other brethren should be your delight, whether you know them or not.

Seeking the well-being of other believers is a culture of Christ. Sharing the burdens of others and keeping them in prayer or using your resources to help them stand through the test of time should be our priority, without any strings attached. Most leaders of our time has created a form of cult religion around their denominations. Many, out of carnality have become like rappers, competing for the spot light. They will do anything in their own power to bring down any ministry or church they consider as threat to their empire. They are fighting for prime-time radio and TV spots with huge sums of money, all in the name of catapulting a denomination, and not a kingdom. As sad and chronic as it may look; God is raising a generation of believers who will raise up high the unity banner of Christ. High above denominational lines, color of the skin, race, culture, creed, economic status and nationality,  to accept one another and uphold the gospel of Jesus Christ with unquenchable passion. This is the new breed of believers! Will you join the army?

FACE TO FACE WITH A HARD CORE LESBIAN


Scripture record that Jesus was seriously accused by the Pharisees and the teachers of the law for being friendly with sinners. To them, it was a taboo for the one who claims to be the holy Son of a Holy God, to eat and hang out with the unclean of society. Jesus had a mission… He did not come to the world for the healthy and the pious. He came to seek and save the lost. Mark 2:16-17  (NLT) 16 But when the teachers of religious law who were Pharisees[a] saw him eating with tax collectors and other sinners, they asked his disciples, “Why does he eat with such scum?[b]” 17 When Jesus heard this, he told them, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.”

She really didn’t know how she got into the chapel

She has made a vow; never to attend this kind of club

No, she wasn’t afraid of God; was skeptical of the holy folks

Like a sheep to the slaughter;

quietly, she sat there watching and waiting

The sermon didn’t paint her pain to the club;

it painted the loveliness of a God who saves

For the first time in her life, she found God to be appealing

He looked into her eyes and saw the emptiness in her soul

She is mesmerized by a God who can only fill her empty heart

Out of her brokenness, she surrendered to the Lover of her soul

I sat face to face with her [I will call her Brooklyn], on  this beautiful first Sunday of the year 2012, in my office. My heart was full of love towards Brooklyn, without any form of condemnation. I Was so thankful to God for the opportunity to declare His love to the reproached of society. I knew I was the answer and solution to Brooklyn’s unsecured life, not because I was smart enough for the occasion. T’was the unmerited grace of Christ. Had Brooklyn met me two years earlier, I would have recommend professional counseling, as the antidote for her pain.

Most Church leaders consider the lesbian and the gay community as a no go zone. We are so sensitive, thinking we might offend people if we dive into their ocean, for a rescue mission. This sense of attitude within the body of Christ, has created a great gulf between the saint and the sinner.  The gospel of Jesus Christ is the power of God unto salvation. Our stereotypical attitude towards certain group of people has rendered us powerless and ineffective, in changing lives.

We condemned and judge, sitting on the fence with pious faces. We are called to save the lost! Thank God, I had then had a personal encounter with Christ Jesus and His great love towards the bad and the ugly. An encounter  which radically affected the way I see people. I always look at people from the lens of Gods love, which surpass human understanding, irrespective of the gravity of their evil behavior. I knew then that God was not angry with Brooklyn, as she sat there with zero peace in her life, through the journey to the unknown.  Life was so sour in her mouth; the riches of Jesus heals and restores a dysfunctional life to a life of purpose and meaning.

For almost like twenty minutes, I shared with Brooklyn the sweetest love of Christ Jesus. Her outer disposition was very overwhelming …she injects a thug life fear into your soul, as she looks into your eyes, without a blink. Like a baby, she was enchanted by the saving power of Christ, and melted into the arms of the one who has power to forgive and transform. Suddenly, she burst into tears, asking Jesus to flood her soul with forgiveness and crown her mind with peace. She was empty, wretched and lonely. To make a long story short, Brooklyn was instantly saved from twenty-five years of bondage with the opposite sex, she called wife.

She later told me that she  and her many friends had this form of mindset against the Church of God. They see the Church of Jesus to be unappealing and unreceptive to the gay community. January 2014 was exactly two years of her transformed destiny. Hallelujah, Jesus saves! On last Sunday, May 18, 2014, a now transformed Brooklyn, led our church choir in a most fantastic, inspiring, song ministration to the glory of Christ. Isn’t it beautiful; how our God will just pick the rejected and the reproached and set them on the rock, to glorify His own name.

 For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears.[aHe will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” (Zephaniah 3:17 NLT)

ruth-gleaning

Friend, here we are; standing on the mountain top of grace

In the deepest valleys of life; the fields are white for a harvest

How beautiful are the feet of them who brings glad tidings

Turn your condemnation tools into pruning hooks of love

Why wasting precious time, debating with the government

We [Church] are the solution center to a bleeding world

We not afraid to be called friends of sinners for heaven sake

YOU ARE FULL: STOP PRAYING FOR FULLNESS!


Photo Credit: Google imageThe just shall live by faith! Faith in what? The Christian life is impossible or meaningless without the believer judging God to be true and faithful in what the cross has wrought for us. In Christ Jesus you have been supplied with all things to the fullest. To be conscious of your lack, weakness and impotence, instead of your fullness in Him cuts you off from the grace of God. You may think, I am not strong enough, holy enough, righteous enough, blessed enough, accepted enough, forgiven enough, loved enough, anointed enough or fruitful enough. Your bucket is not half full…In Christ Jesus you are complete and whole, but it takes faith to walk in fullness.You may ask, “How can I believe I am full when am already broke busted and disgusted?”.

Beloved, you can believe you are full because your life is hidden in Christ and He is full and loaded. Paul sounds the trumpet so loud in our unbelieving ears; “For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. [Collossians 2:9-10a] Did you saw that? In Christ, you have been brought to fullness! That is good news, to rescue your soul from toilsome labor, guilt, anxiety, fear and insecurity for tomorrow. Stop praying; “God make me full and start recognizing your fullness in Christ through faith. You want to overcome sin and sickness? Recognize that in Christ your sins has been punished to non-existence and your life has been redeemed from the curse of the law so that you can enjoy good health, even as your soul prospers.

Ritual vs Reality 


bio_major[1]There are a few things quite so boring as being religious, but there is nothing quite so exciting as being a Christian! Most folks have never discovered the difference between the one and the other, so that there are those who sincerely try to live a life they do not have, substituting religion for God, Christianity for Christ, and their own noble endeavors for the energy, joy, and power of the Holy Spirit. In the absence of reality, they can only grasp at ritual, stubbornly defending the latter in the absence of the former, lest they be found with neither! They are lamps without oil, cars without gas, and pens without ink, baffled at their own impotence in the absence of all that alone can make man functional; for man was so engineered by God that the presence of the Creator within the creature is indispensable to his humanity. Christ gave Himself for us to give Himself to us! His presence puts God back into the man! He came that we might have life – God’s life!”

THIS DRESS OF ANTIQUITY


Angry-baby-at-the-Givenchy-show

You defined me as not beautiful

The first day I cried and saw the light

That first day she saw this innocent face

She puts on me this dress I wore

I wonder when I will grow bigger, than this dress

Occasionally, I cut myself lose from this dress of antiquity

Only to be reminded by society; “the new you don’t fit”

Imagine how I have wanted to be like you, in your dress

From the corner of your eye; a despicable worm on the sidewalk

Your lips drip with the poison that killed my innocence

Like an old dog to its vomit, I sew myself back into this dress

Itchy, tight texture to my wounded skin, I wear it day and night

Allergic to life, infected with death, that delays and delays with hurt

Who will throw stones on this mirror they’ve invented in my head

Please, break me free from this repulsive world; end this ugly war

Standing at the edge of the bridge, reciting my pain; at the night watch

If she has a friend she could have sent a text message to tell why

Cold virgin feet, slipping fast to the grave;

Yet she has a little time to say a little prayer

A friend she never knew solicitously tapped her cold shoulder

The warmth of your touch; a bundle blanket on my cold soul

You breathes on me with contentment: You’ve woken me up to live

You’ve made my life so beautiful; there is nothing greater than this

Just as you are: You have clothed me with the beauty of thyself

On the sidewalk; she walks majestically with smiles on her face

Defying the odds of a vicious society, with a new self, a new song;

Yes Jesus loves me

Yes Jesus loves

Yes Jesus loves me

For the Bible tells me so

EFFORTLESS BREAKTHROUGH


Does God have to be loosed from some form of inactivity through one’s white-hot activity, before one can receive from Him? 

“I need a breakthrough” “Pray hard until God intervene” “I will not let God go until He blessed me today” “We need an open heaven today…don’t sit there and pray like you have no problems” “Lift up your voice and pray with passion…violent take it by force” “Receive faith that moves God”. These are some of the passionate sentiments of the believer, pushing real good to ignite the heavens for quick response. Can the believer motivate God to action?

IS GOD BEING LAZY OR BORED – I grew up within the Pentecostal and Charismatic circles, as a Christian. As a charismatic believer, we had the belief that faith has to move God into action. This form of negative believes is the source of “operation push prayer marathon” “breakthrough prayer chain” “power to open heavens” “violent take it by force” and what have you in some circles within the Christendom. It is totally absurd to think that God is lazily sitting in a huge sofa in heaven, with zero interest in the affairs of men, until some spiritual bulldozers pray so hard to bulldozed Him into action. The idea of chain prayer is not wrong and neither are passionate prayers wrong in any sense. We are truly encouraged by scripture to pray without ceasing. I love prayer, fasting and shouting when I am in the presence of God, sometimes. But I don’t try to motivate God with my form or style of prayer when I pray to God. I pray because I love to talk to my daddy and plug into what He is already doing.

FLEE FROM TOILSOME LABOR Jesus wants His followers to be free from worry and self effort, because He already has knowledge about our needs. A knowledge which is accompanied by a strong desire to meet our needs, at all times. The Bible says; “25Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? [Matthew 6:25–26]

Anxiousness will cause you to try to work God to walk you out of troubles instead of resting in the caring heart of your heavenly Father, who leads you as a good shepherd, through trials and troubles [The valley of shadow of death]. The breakthrough mentality to motivate a lazy God to action is an insult to the finished work of Christ. It always birth out unrest and confusion in one’s life, which leads to human mechanization as a substitute for originality. There is nothing you can do on your own to breakthrough against satanic limitations. Recognizing your identity in Christ as a victor is the first step to exercising your rightful authority against Satan and his cohorts. If one does not rest in the already established grace of Christ, there is always a question of when will I breakthrough? You are always looking for what’s next to motivate God into quick response. When we gather in His presence, needing a miracle, we don’t try to bombard heaven with prayer missiles to awaken a sleeping God. We stretch our hands in faith and receive a manifestation of His presence which is always with us. We don’t plead with Him to come. He is already in our midst. The fact that when we come together and we have no feelings about God does not means He is sitting somewhere, minding His own business. Our feelings can be deceptive but His promise is unchanging. The scripture says; “I will not leave you nor forsake you” [Heb 13:5]

GOD IS MOVING OR NOT MOVING? – Friend God is already ‘moved’ through Christ Jesus with white-hot passion to see you prosper in all things. Are you not more valuable than the birds of the air? Just as the birds of the air naturally rest on the established laws of God for their provision, God want to see the believer walk in constant trust, in His abundant riches and love. If your kids had to always motivate you into action by bowing and throwing praises on you like a god before you cover their back with clothing and put food on their table, then you are not a good parent. Our Father in Heaven is caring. We have not learned how to receive. We have become mere beggars in our prayers. We think the harder you pray the greater impact you make. There is difference between noise making and real prayers, which hinges on covenant relationship. Praying longer hours, few seconds, undertone or shouting is not the key. The key is the motivation. Don’t ever think wrong motivation pleases God. We can do the right thing with wrong motivation. In the sixteenth chapter of the Book of Acts of the apostles, Paul and Silas praised God in their prison cells and suddenly there was a miracle. What was the motivation? Were they singing to motivate God to move on their behalf or it was a sense of trust in their God, even in their woes? God did not respond because their song was so touching, heaven could not delay, but to swiftly respond. I believe their songs were not means to compel God, but a faithful assurance in who He. Their faith in God in times of trouble, bear the fruit of supernatural escape. Hear from the lips of the Master; “And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words”. [Mathew 6:7 ESV]

THE BREAKTHROUGH EXPERTS – Breakthrough is one of the common catchphrases in the body of Christ. To the Pentecostals or the Charismatic believer, breakthrough is centered on breaking the defenses, barriers, and limitations of Satan and his cohorts with some form of spiritual force or work, in order to receive from God [We always see a glass ceiling over our heads, that needs to be broken]. It’s also a lifestyle of passionate desires for an open heaven on one’s life. There are some folks in the body of Christ who consider themselves as experts in breaking-through into the throne of God, through special techniques and methods. They have the “7 Principles to Break through Into the Heavens”, “14 Ways to Prayers that Move God”, “21 Keys to Pulling God from Heaven to kiss the earth”. Which of the techniques moves God? These man centered prescriptions are based on rules instead of a relationship with God. Those who are not armed with such abilities to breakthrough into a kingdom they are already in are considered as babes. If you can’t shout, fast longer days, pray in a certain way or style, some deeper blessings will elude you, they say. Am not surprised the lack of power and authority within the body of Christ. Men are running around looking for an intermediate experts to connect them to God. You have a privilege to speak to your God irrespective of how weak you are in prayer. Just pray my friend!

FAITH JUDGES GOD RIGHT Faith is not a special ability within the human heart [attained by special men] that compels God to act on our behalf. [See Romans 12:3] The simplest definition of faith is having a good opinion about God. Our faith in God is a foundation of a persuasion in our hearts about who God is, what He has done, and who we are in Him through Jesus Christ. The believer has the measure of faith in his born again spirit to rightly judge God as faithful in all of His manifold promises, in Christ Jesus. You already got faith to believe God.

IT’S NOT ABOUT TECHNIQUES – Friend, in your worries, you don’t need techniques…all you need is Jesus. Just call on Him and believe in His word about your life, and see the Spirit goes to work to comfort your heart. That is an effortless breakthrough. Many Christians has waited for breakthrough for decades and they feel so frustrated about God. God is not wicked to hide himself from us and only special efforts by special men can touch His heart of love. Listen friend, Satan is a defeated foe…yes he will rise against us with doubts in our hearts to weakened our faith. He can be the stronghold in the minds of your children or partner. Yet you don’t need to go through 21 days of prayer works before God will intervene. Your prayer and fasting does not move God…Fasting rather helps you to control the carnal weakness of the body so you can be in alignment with God’s word. I did not say fasting is not good. Fasting is good but it doesn’t change God, it rather changes us.

YOU GOT POWER ON THE INSIDE – My friend, there is Power on your side, every micro second of the day. Just speak the word into reality. Speaking God’s word through the lips of faith is not a command to usher God into action. We can speak to our problems as we recognize the authority of His word and declare it with our faith in Him. Mountains move, sicknesses bow, confusion disappear and victory manifest into our reality. Your confession didn’t move God…your confession recognized an overflowing current of God against Satanic energies. I am not against breakthrough prayers but against prayers that men work on to try to move God into action. Have you ever heard preachers say stuff like; “After I finished my anointed prayers and confession, God moved so powerful, over the place”. God didn’t move an inch…God was already in the place like a mighty wave but men were dull about His activity. God’s power is with you at this moment, whether you are at 7 Eleven or in the train. You represent Christ and other believers like you in that place. Just because you don’t know does not mean you are the only Christian in that place. What about the Church fellowship, family in prayer, or the bible study group. Jesus says that; “20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. [Matthew 18:20 KJV]

HEALING IS A DONE DEAL – Under the New Covenant, we are in a new day of supernatural accomplishment of Christ. Our view of God’s presence, perfect health and healing should not be based on how hard we have to pray and sweat to impress Him, so He will come into our midst and heal. We have already experience break through and open heaven. Remember, healing is a done deal, over 2,000 years ago, on Calvary cross. The Bible says; “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” [1 Peter 2:24 NIV] 

RECEIVE HEALING TODAY – Precious one; you have received the greatest breakthrough in Christ. From degeneration into regeneration, from aliens into royalty, from rejection into acceptance, from death into life, from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light, from fear to love, from poverty into prosperity, from sorrow to His peace, from condemnation to justification and from sin to righteousness. You have already breakthrough into health, according in scripture. Faith plugs into the finish work to receive. God is not initiating a project in heaven as men puts on great ritualistic performances. You have already been healed of cancer, diabetes, lung weakness, HIV Aids, abdominal pain, stress, depression, autism and all its siblings. Christ took it away and gave you perfect health, dominion, power, prosperity and wholeness on every side. Rest in Jesus faith and allow yourself to be immersed in the ocean of His love. Most people think there are body organs warehouse in heaven, and if one is sick or had injured his body and needs a replacement of a body organ, we have to call special intercessors who knows how to break into God’s donor house, in lightning speed. In your born again spirit, you have a whole new world of a kingdom which do not lacks in anything. Healing is yours with your eyes on Jesus. It’s only received through faith. Satan do not hold your miracle in the skies, neither do witches sits on your wealth. You are complete in Christ Jesus. Breakthrough is all about knowing who we are and taking new territories for Christ, by establishing the kingdom where it has not been preached.

THE LOFTIEST BREAKTHROUGH – In my estimation, the loftiest form of breakthrough for the believer is what Apostle Paul prayed for the Ephesians in Chapter one and three of his epistle to the church; Having a revelation of who God is, what Jesus has done and capturing the hope of our calling, and the manifold blessings within the saint, through the escort of the Holy Spirit” should be our greatest pursuit. Paul writes; Ephesians 1:15-19 (KJV)15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, 16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; 17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: 18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power. He prayed again for the Church… Ephesians 3:17-19 (NKJV)17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 

God loves you and has lavished you with over the-top provision in all areas of your life. If we honestly desire to breakthrough from a life of toil to an effortless life of rest, I recommend to you the so good to be true gospel of Christ. Through the gospel, we will stop trying to breakthrough and enjoy or experience the fullness of God in our lives. This is a day of salvation, rest, prosperity and breakthrough, as it was declared by the Prophets and fulfilled in Christ Jesus [See Isaiah 53:1-8, Luke 4:17-19]. Christ has gone before us and won the victory for us; we are resting in His work, picking the booty of His victory. Hallelujah!

The Breaker [the Messiah] will go up before them. They will break through, pass in through the gate and go out through it, and their King will pass on before them, the Lord at their head. [Micah 2:13 AMP]

MAMA


Villagers carry water in plastic containers on their heads as they walk through dry land in Maros regency, in Indonesia's South Sulawesi province

I need a bird in my empty cage

Sing lullaby till thy baby rest

Cage my thoughts in your love songs

Who doesn’t love the birds of love labor

Without price you sung your labor songs

Unschooled in thy conscious servitude

You washed my brain with life themes

Ear to hear, eyes to see you freely gave

A pigeon in a tropical jungle;

afraid of the hunter

You will share your wings with me;

 when I needed it

The thoughts of you gives me the wings to fly

My angel surpass ten thousands of angels

Mama; you are (were) my angel

She didn’t have much; she had a soul

A soul so large and bigger than life

Your smiles covered our pains;

I have learned to smile through the storms of life

We were called poor by the rich in our community

Richly we lived our lives, content with the little

Had thou not taught us how to live large with little

I would had been a fool comparing myself with others

Her African skin was tattooed with scars of sacrifice

The sacrifice of your life a harvest we reap and share

Soft in her flight like a butterfly; beautiful to behold

Unbending water;

Through the rocks, never surrendered to opposition

Like a candle in our night; you were snuffed out

Your face still glows in my path through the night dreams

I didn’t have to understand everything you said and did

Now that I am a man;

I am living in my aha moments

Many women are treading on the same path like yours

They’re singing their love labor songs with empty stomach

They are fighting for the future of their children without navigation

If I have the opportunity to meet them all; will worship their braveness

Thank you Mama for your servitude of love

Thank you woman for your relentless passion
