I WON’T SINK


IMG_2145.jpg

Say to your soul; “I won’t sink.” It may sound like a cliché; declaring this simple but profound truth, which may be in stark contrast to the realities of your life. Are you overwhelmed by the negative waves of life? Have you had enough of your own tears in your hands? Where are you right now my dear friend? Wherever you are in your life journeys you are an automatic candidate for God’s vote? Take few minutes right here right now and read your way out of any sour narrative.

INSPIRATION | There’s beautiful declaration of trust hidden in the holy scriptures. These words has always been my source of hope when it feels like my feet is sinking into the dark abyss of despair. The psalmist echoes through the corridors discomfort, these amazing words of life;

Psalm 27:5-6
5 For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will lift me high upon a rock.6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me,and I will offer in his tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing and make melody to the LORD

Keep this in mind: “Even if your feet or your whole life is in muddy waters right now, your father God is able to flood your heart with the needed peace, as you confidently trust in his rescuing power.[See Isaiah 26:3-4] Watch this! Don’t miss this moment of truth. The psalmist continues; “now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me.

LIFTED | This is exactly what God is doing right now; lifting you higher above the storms, crowning your life with his glory, and putting to shame the expectations of your enemies. Not only that: your spirit shall be awaken by the beauty of God’s grace, and you will start composing new and glorious songs of praise from the depths of your heart. Instead of mourning you will sing and dance in his glory. Hallelujah!

FAITH CONFESSION | Friend, I speak over your life today — I declare a special manifestation of God’s beauty in your life. May Yahweh conceal you and yours in his love, far from the reach of your enemies, and to order your steps within his ultimate purpose until you reach your sacred places. You won’t sink. You will stand among those standing; praising the King, in Jesus name. Be healed, be restored, be strengthened from all the places of your being. Amen!

IT CAN BE FIXED; YOUR BROKENNESS 


In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old – Amos 9:11
God is the greatest innovator in history. He’s the master builder of all time. He’s not only capable of releasing his imagination into reality. Without a doubt he’s the only God who has the power to fix back our brokenness to its primal beauty, as if life was never tampered by chaos. Almost all humans look up to Him for the grace to build our lives to the highest peak of purpose. Are you yearning for the wisdom to start or the grace to rebuild your life after a hiccup? Whatever your position is today, there’s hope for you in Christ to walk into victory.

A SHAKEN — Moreover, there are countless number of humans under God’s heaven who are also going through a shaken, a breaking, a destruction, a collapse of sort in their lives. Sometimes the degree of the collapse maybe deemed impossible for restoration, when they measure the depths of your fall. It could be a business venture, a relationship, the seat of your emotions, ministry, or your spiritual commitments; terribly declining.

REJOICE NOT OVER ME — The greater the fall or the breaches within our lives, chills of fear seizes its opportunity to creep into our souls, giving us a million reason live will never taste glorious again. I’ve been there before in ministry, and so many aspects of life — when everything you’ve labored for collapses in front of you, scattered in all the places, and nothing seems to work, no matter how hard you try. Colleagues will start making fun of you, gossiping about you. Some will even go to the extent of convincing their own soul, that you’ve sinned against God, instead of them to stand with you, encouraging your soul. Good friends may abandon you, even your own shadow may follow the crowd, leaving you to rot in shame.

EXPECT A MIRACLE — But, here is the good news — God is able to close all breaches of life; healing the old wounds and memories of the past. He’s capable of raising up the ruins of our lives. Those things in our lives which were steady and strong some weeks back, or many years ago. He promise to build and restore us to days of glory. I dearly believe in a God of restoration. He can create, and he can also restore the years that the caterpillar and the cankerworm has eaten. Expect Him to fix your life again. Yes, the life which is in despair now, because of a divorce, separation, or the lost of a love one.

JUST BELIEVE — Friend, your God will not leave you in the hands of your enemies, as you sit on top of the rubble heap with your hands over your head, whiles the wicked gloat over you. He will surely restore the fortunes of your business, prosper your wayward children, restore your ministry, your dignity, and build your self esteem back, even to the very core of your spirit. Just look unto him today, faith in your eyes, and rare patience within your heart.

GREAT LESSONS — Don’t be in haste, running around for solutions from people. God will always use your downfall to teach you great lessons you can pass it on to others. I’m taking about life incredible lessons only pain can teach you. It’s not easy, but he will grant you the grace to endure to the end. God will prove those naysayers wrong. May God receive praise, honor, and power today, for he has remembered the reproached, and the beggarly. Oh, builder and restorer of our lives, we thank you for lifting us from the miry clay, setting us on the rock to stand. Amen!

I DON’T

Consider myself as anything worth emulating

Why would you waste your time and resources

Trying to become anything worthless in being

I am worthless

I am hopeless

A destitute, standing under the spotlight

There is nothing good within me, except ego

There is nothing good within me except illusions

They went out there, looking for someone to emulate

They travelled far and near, searching for hope in others

Why would you waste your time searching for dry lands

To  anchor your soul on, when the ocean is beckoning on you?

I don’t consider myself to be worth emulating

I don’t consider myself to be worth emulating

I’m wrapped up in sin, Without Christ;

I am a sounding brass,

A trumpet sound, without meaning

Look into the eyes of the ones whose heart has

Been invaded by His (Christ)  very own life

On this dreary side of eternity –

There is a refuge of a savior

For the weary heart and the broken

His worth in them

is worth emulating

CALL OF HOPE


 7 am.

I woke up under the bridge;

Smiled and strolled down,

on grinding lane.

2 am.

I woke up

Sat up, all night long

Wondering why in the abundance

Of life, I can’t steal a smile.

Then I realized that, riches can offer

You the best in life, but can’t guarantee,

A lifetime of true happiness.

5 am.

I knelt down beside my bed and

called on Him (God) who gives life

THE PLEASURE OF BELIEVING


20140606-095014.jpg
We can all live in true joy in a negative world. Jesus has become the complete package, that satisfies every form of hunger and need of the human heart. A heart anchored daily in the completeness of Jesus, experience the Spirit activity of stirring inner peace and joy to affect our external life. Worries and anxiety is a sign that we are not trusting God or we are not persuaded by the truth of His word. I have had my share of worries and uncertainty in my heart, this whole week. Then again, I am truly encouraged by the heart of my Father in heaven, through scripture. His desire is to see you and I, walk in real happiness: Now my heart is full of good expectation joy and peace, which comes from Jesus. I thank Christ Jesus, for lavishing me super-abundantly with the grace to ride through the storms. Friend, I don’t know what ails you today; I just want to assure you that, no matter what your situation is today, the secret to peace is to keep believing that you can make it through the storm. Your eyes firmly fixed on Jesus, the author and the finisher of your faith. Have a graceful weekend!  Amen!!

 

HOPE I HOPE


ruth-gleaning

We sat in the dust

Just wondering how

Surrounded by darkness

A thick wall of resistance

Our persistence fades

Wells so dry;

Our children cry for wellness

We sat in the dark with empty stomach

Tears in our eyes;

Like lonely birds on broken branches,

Drenched in cold; after the hurricane

Just wondering why;

Our wings are so heavy for a routine flight

The candle in our hearts; snuffed out

The wicked gloats over us

Our belly bloat with regret

Blown away into the unknown

Disowned by the reality of our lost

We remembered our Kinsman Redeemer

Our hearts; filled with redemption theme

Our mouths; wet with redemption songs

He is near;

I know my redeemer lives

He is near;

Even now, there is hope

In-spite of hopeless gravity

We looked beyond our depravity,

Into His eyes;

Mercy said; No

Our hearts said; Yes

Prison doors burst open

Light shine in our darkness

Chains fell off from our wounded souls

For the price of my freedom;

You were wounded with my chains

Yes, you took the blame and changed the game

You are the hope I hope;

Jesus

Bread of life

Savior friend

My Redeemer

Lilly of the valley

Rose of Sharon

Lamb of God

My Shepherd

Hope of Israel

    Light of the world

hope

Ezra 10:2 ESV … “We have broken faith with our God and have married foreign women from the peoples of the land, but even now there is hope for Israel in spite of this.

I WANT YOU TO LOOK INTO MY EYES


Photo Credit; Gogle image

I want you to look into my eyes and see shelter

From the chaos storms of a stormy world

I want you to give up your arms and take up mine

There is rest for your smothered soul; in my arms

I want you  to feel my heartbeat of love, when you are near

I want you to stop running and breath the warmth of my love

I saw you among the crowd of faces on Glee Avenue

Smiles

Giggling

Laughter

Moody

Headset on

Fast walking

No one knows your pain

You knows no ones pain

Secret pains being kept in secrecy

Amidst the laughter and the noise; weariness

I saw you awhile at the restroom, wiping your tears

Look into my eyes and see hope to cheer

I saw you at the parking lot of the medical facility

The doctors report in your hands says; its incurable

The written on the walls of your heart says; it’s over

Look into my eyes and swim in the ocean of my grace

Oh, battered and bruised heart;

Why wandered in the dark forest without a candle

Tambourine in thy right hand and shame on thy left hand

Your guilt sounds louder than thy praise, in my sanctuary

 Unfailing brightness peace of mine;You can count on

Lighting thy path to relentless peace and comfort

Look into my eyes

Look  my way

Rest awaits you from thy laborious activity of secret pain
