DEEPEST COLD VALLEYS

Through it all — the insurmountable assaults of life, learn to take each step daily, your eyes on Jesus. The self depended fella can only glory in his strength when things go well. But in the times of trouble his strength cannot save him from the predicaments of life.Through it all — wether good or bad, learn to depend on the Lord totally; coming to the end of self”

Cold defeat sits inside his heart like a weakling squirrel on broken branches, after the storm. Tears whipped his pale face as he reminisce his old self. What happened? When did I lost it all, he soliloquies? •

Deafening, melancholic rhythms of chaos within the ears within his ears. Oh, how fragile, even the most strongest among men, is fragile. Like a candle sets on white sandy shores at night, he glows like a lighthouse, guiding mammoth ships, but in a twinkle of an eye the winds slaps him, and he’s no more. He’s gone — to the rabbit holes, where no man knows the language they speak except the man writhing in pain & sorrow

So I said to myself, if life is only meaningful when the Beloved guides thy feet to wherewithal he wants you to be, then it’s worthless for me to go where the Lover has not sent me to be.

Father, Son, Spirit — Pruner of the vineyard Keep me on the path where your grace rules Guide my feet away from the evil that lurks. Oh, the evil that lurks in the darkness around

There is a cup in the hands of God, filled with the wine of love. The taste of it, I do not have the words to express. Whenever I am in His presence I feel lighter, yet intoxicated by the weight of His glory, possessed by mercy; indulging and embracing eternal romance, and deep assurance of love.

Your love is the most sweetest thing my soul has ever bathed itself in. Don’t tell me to jump out of this river, oh man. Freeing, nourishing, and strengthening; the deeper my feet, my soul delve into it’s grandeur —— Ah, nothing feels better than you; Jesus, lover of my soul.

I could still be sitting on weak branches of self; wounded from within if your love and warmth had not touched the feet of this migrant bird; warming my days in eternal ecstasy.

CHRIST BEHAVING IN US


Romans 7:18 (KJV) 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not


Christianity is not just hard, it’s impossible without Christ behaving himself in us. So much emphasis has been placed on self efforts, and willpower, more than resting in the indwelling presence of Christ in the body of Christ. We have confidence in the flesh that failed many generations before the manifestation of the Spirit of Christ, now living inside our born again spirit.

In the early stages of my walk with the Lord I heard a lot from the pulpit concerning self discipline, self denying, and man’s effort as the path to a victorious Christian living. I saw a lot of my friends succumbed to the pressure of life along the way. They loved the Lord but they lacked the strength to continue the journey. Their spirit was willing but the weakness of their flesh gave up on them after years of trying hard through self discipline, and willpower to walk in the plans of God. Are you weary and worn out? Do you feel the demands of Christianity is too hard for you?Let me show you the secret to an effortless life in God. 

CHRISTIANITY IS CHRIST >>•• Christianity is never possible in anyway if Christ is not the focal point of your actions. I’m sorry for all those who boast in the flesh. Your ability can take you few miles, but the rest of the journey will be cloaked under hypocrisy, guilt, and sheer emptiness. You can never enjoy all that God is in Christ Jesus. Jesus says it this way to His church…

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing (John 15:5)

CHRIST BEHAVING IN US >>•• To do of Gods good pleasure, and to walk in His perfect will, God must work in men, else we fail like the old covenant generation. So God is not just a giver of joy, peace, love, wisdom and what have you. In Christ Jesus, within our regenerated spirit, God dwells in us as peace, holiness, wisdom, anointing, power, safety, healing, creativity, innovation, excellence, freedom, etc. All the things we trying so hard to acquire is already in us. What’s inside you is Jesus. Did you get it? 

Therefore we’re complete in Him by faith to bear much more fruit in our life if and only we are willing to come to the end of self, and let Him do it. How did you know that, McDaniels? Let scripture speak for itself >>•• “Colossians 2:10 So you also are COMPLETE through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority.

  The struggle of life is not because the devil is powerful. It is because Christ is not seated at the throne of our lives, as the chief umpire. Without me you can do nothing. Nothing means anything that’s is heavenly or divine related. You can do a lot of things by yourself, but it wouldn’t have substance in the end. 

Always remember this; “all that you want to be is already in Christ. You need love? God has already given you love in your born again spirit through Christ. He has not given you the spirit of fear but of love and of sound mind. Fear is as a result of focal change. What do u see? Jesus or the prevailing winds? The more you’re focus on Him the more your life will reflect His life. Just as He is so are you in this world. 

We are not like Christ in love and in power because our focus has shifted from Him to our own strengths. So today just trust Him as the catalyst of your earthly reality. We can trust Him completely to move and behave within us in all areas of our lives through faith. When that happens, the end product of our lives flows directly from Him. Weakness will surrender to His strength. Then Christianity is passiveness? Faith does not equate laziness. Faith bring good results to your actions. Keep on praying. Keep on working, but your eyes on Jesus. 

I SURRENDER ALL TO YOU… WITHHOLDING NOTHING >>• We can surrender or continue in the weakness of our flesh. If fear, sickness, stress or sorrow is dominating your life today, my good friend, lift your eyes to Him by faith, as His life flows through your wilderness. Paul says it’s beautifully….

For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring Acts 17:28

I know without any iota of doubt, those who depend on the arm of their own flesh cannot experience the quality life of God. It’s a curse to put your trust in your flesh. Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD (Jeremiah 17:5

BE WATCHFUL >>• There are a lot of self esteem, self motivators in our pulpit today, pushing men to do the things their natural capacity cannot do in God. They shift your focus from Christ; feeding your heart with man made ideals. Don’t be fooled by their 7 steps and 21 ways to bring the best out of your flesh. In the end you boast in your achievements and success. You can’t do the Christlike life without Jesus. Jesus is the answer. Get this revelation and let it sink deep into your spirit. This will be the outcome of your life; “God working in you, creating brand new desires, and purpose as the deer pants for water in the wilderness.” You’ll start seeing yourself doing all the things they thought you couldn’t do, effortlessly. Don’t give up. Hold on to the ever-flowing nectars of God.  

For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. Philippians 2:13

THANK THE LORD >>•• Just take a moment to thank the Lord for taking over your life. Trust me this will change your walk with the Lord. You don’t have to try hard again through human effort to be loving, bold, confident, peaceful, blessed, healthy, safe and sound. Your God is the ever-flowing fountain within you. You can do all things through Christ. Can you imagine the moisture of grace right now, as your spirit wrapped his arms on the pleasures of heaven? Freedom, freedom, freedom, is here, in Jesus name. Hallelujah!

SOUR GRAPES


imagesCATM3FL0

There was a mother who never knew love from no one.
Not even her own household.
______
Daily, she will drive to the cemetery,
cursing the graves of her parents,
for bringing her to a dark world;
living with ungrateful souls.
______
They fed her with sour grapes
Until her teethe was set on edge
She bite life without passion
Consumed with blurry questions
And the labors of her soul
____
Where is my reward?
Where is my honor?
Does love exist?
____
She danced in the dark rain
Wet with unanswerable questions;
Beating under her lungs like an
AFRICAN drum.
____
Maybe, one day I will find love
Maybe, one day love will find me

Whichever way it happens—
Love must find a way through this
Frangible, weary, temple of mine;
Dancing with me to the altar of freedom
___
Sadly, she never found love
Love never found her
Cause her hurt was so deep, wide,
And high than the walls of Jericho
_____
Ah, we go to cemeteries;
showering silver tears upon graves;
Wanting to hold and hug the dead
But the living is forgotten and not appreciated
____
Too bad.
Sometimes, we wait till they’re gone
To the other side of life, before we
Appreciate.
____
To all WOMEN, who feel downcast within —
I sent my love to you,
My wings i share with you –
To give you the momentum to rise
Rising unto another day
Another beautiful day
Filled with the fragrance Of Eden’s Roses
Happy Mother’s Day ❤
_____

NB: I wrote this prose poetry on Mothers Day (5/8/16)
Dedicated to all mothers who for some reason, been
broken by the unappreciative spirit of the ungrateful.
There are countless women around the world, who are
dealing with unexplainable pain – feeling lost and
neglect by society. I pray that God with baptize your
soul with His uncommon love to overcome the emptiness
within. You’re one beautiful strong woman – don’t give
up to the afflictions of life. God, even your God will
keep you from falling from the edge of insanity. Amen!

FRIENDS & FAMILY



Family is a blessing. 

Friendship is a miracle.

You have it both?

Keep it with your two hands

Protect it from the dark moon

Hide it in your heart; a treasure

Why walk with your head down?

Why sit ye lonely, filled with questions?

Blessings & miracles are always under attack

Don’t give up on them, cause of imperfections

Don’t think you can make it alone, without it

Families are a blessing from the Lord

He sets us in mild, and wild families —

The good, the bad, and the ugly, are from Him

Do everything to make it organically good

Don’t ever say; “I wish I belong somewhere”

Sometimes, we pay attentions to the little

Stuff, so we miss the bigger picture

Families are a blessing

Friendship is a miracle

I am glad I belong to a family 

You’re my family, irrespective of your color, Race, creed, religion, and what have you.

I deeply love you, fam!

FOR A MOMENT


questions

I thought I was a failure

For a moment I thought

Life has not been fair to me

Maybe, I was not paying attention to

The little things in my life that makes me

Feel complete rest with the Earth-Maker.

For a moment I thought I made it

Here, by my own strength

Looking deep, beyond my skin,

The scars of yesteryear, engraved on my

Soul, and all the places of my being

Reminded me that, this has to be Gods

Mighty hands; invisibly conjuring miracles

In my life, for all this while

It has to be Him, but no one else

I could have died a long time ago

I could have lost my mind through chaos

No, no, I am not a failure

I have been blessed, but was blind;

To unravel the goodness of my Father God

I have tasted grace when life was sour

I have leapt over walls, and stand tall;

Head above the thick clouds of evil

Sorry, for having all these thoughts in

My heart; holding doubts against your

Faithfulness. You’ve done it. And now

I am thankful and grateful for your grace.

DEAR, HUMANS Pt.1


Dear, humans

Gladden thy heart

with beauty.

Love is beautiful

to the human soul

Why?

You’ve deny thy

heart of its necessary food.

Emptiness conquers,

apathy whispers against

a belly full of chaos,

fear is overwhelmed

and dispelled, at the place

where perfect love dominates.

feast on love, feed on love;

thy soul gets it nourishment

from His loyal  love

towards you.

` A.G. McDaniels

LOVE REVOLUTION


angry desires, teared my
patience into bits & pieces.
O’ the world refused to hear
I run out of a rebellious city,
a dark world; hiding myself in
an isolated dark cave, burning
with rage. How I have wanted
to change her, but she paid deaf
ear to my beautiful song.

Let me tell you a secret; “instead
of changing the world, I decided
to change myself, from burning
with rage; dancing in the rain of
pure love; cleansing my soul from
all other desires.” Just as a maid
watch the hand of her mistress,
the world drink from the cup in
my hands, with deep curiosity
