I’m Here, Dear

6E2DEF6A-1008-4575-92F7-776F62EF8B23

Sometimes I don’t know what to say
Sometimes I don’t understand half of what you’re saying
But I can listen,
I can nod
I can add some positive monosyllables
I can maintain eye contact and somewhat engage
I can make myself available
To be here for you
To be a friend and to stay friendly

Imprisoned Thoughts

a8c7e009-b028-4b4f-b142-01b4649be053

“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:5

Before that thought becomes an action
Before that thought settles as a mindset
Hold it captive…

Close every door and make it a prisoner. Lock it up, and subject it to critical scrutiny and gruelling questions. 

Agenda: Find out it’s motive, aim and agenda. What will it achieve?

Pass it through the fire of God’s word. Is it true, just, worthy and of good report?

Test it on yourself. Ask yourself- what if the tables were turned? If someone else said that or thought that about me, how would I feel?

Investigate: find out its true source and please ask it “WHO SENT YOU??!!”

Verify your findings and be objective with the results you receive. 

Evaluate the aftermath and consequences of letting it out. Will it threaten, steal, kill and destroy or will it bring life, health and healing. 

Then take the appropriate godly action. Make it obey Christ. We are always in charge of our thoughts.

Love. Love. Love.

love

love has always been
an action word

actions always speak volumes
more than words

actions are always the mirrors
into your soul

narcissism has no friends

agape’s friends are countless

love will always be
an action word

love

Happy New Year!!

It’s here again,
It’s here to stay
Four days over,
A new year has begun
Blank pages waiting to be filled
New ideas, waiting to be milked

Plans and propositions
Resolutions and renovations
Excitement and prospects
They soon wither down
And Procrastination hits
When July comes knocking

Regret sets in
As leaves bid farewell to trees;
Jubilations soar up
At the dawn of wintry chills

Then it’s New Year again
What goes round comes round
And round and round and round

And here we are again
How will it end this year?
I wonder

Happy New Year to all my fellow bloggers!!

Fight For This Love

D6C94F77-C6BF-4F3F-9DD5-E494C2C68B2E

With gentle whispers
Like a lover He woos me
He draws me to His presence
Like the morning dew on delicate petals
He whispers sweet graceful words
Hope, healing and tenderness

I spend time with Him
In quiet solitude
Engrossed in His holy grail
I lose track of time
His love draws me near
I fall at His feet
Tears of joy with my alabaster

Yet I drift off on my own
I make mistakes
He warns, He calls, I don’t listen
But, He’s always there for me
His love never fails
Even when I am far far away

I will fight for this love
I will fight to stay in His love
He loves me
I know
I love Him
More than my life

I will fight for this love
I will fight to stay in His love
Ward of every distraction
Turn my gaze on Him
For my great love and God
Deserves every bit of me
And my undivided attention

I Found Him Too

 

B6334588-237D-4F92-B343-0B4F73E8CA52

Now I belong to Jesus
Jesus belongs to me
Not for the years of time alone
But for eternity”
(Hymn by Norman J. Clayton)

I found Him too
At banks of the River
Where springs of Hope
Bubbled in delight

I found Him too
In the Dawn of the day
When I knelt in contrite
Near my bedside lamp

I found Him too
With unspeakable joy
Where cords of Love
Bound my heart to His

I found my Saviour
That is,
After He found me first

Untamed Fear, Tamed

55FAB1BA-826D-4E75-875A-35AD79DD3C9A

You split the sea so I could walk right through it
You bound my fear in perfect love
You rescued me so I could shout and sing
“I am a child of God!”
(Jonathan David & Melissa Helser)

My untamed fear
Unravelled without boundaries
My broken heart
Unmended like the broken hinges of a wooden door
Your hands, like branches of an olive tree
Carries me away from the splinters that pierced within
Your love, like rivers of Arizona
Washes away the fear that breeds unbelief

I am healed
I am loved
I am not afraid
I am a child of God

Write A Cheque For Liberty

What is the cost of freedom?
A soldier’s life?
What is the cost of liberty?
A young man’s death?

Politicians bickering
Smoking cigars,
In luxurious suites
Soldiers fighting
Hungry and homesick
In muddy trenches

Put a price of freedom
What is the number?
Write a cheque for liberty
How much is it?

Bring all the monies in the world
Gather all the gold and the diamonds
Put them in a bank-
How many lives can it buy?

Precious Is He

IMG_2618

Unto you that believes
He is precious
(1 Peter 2:7)

Oh the day I called His name
Sin and self, my only game
Until He took me by the hand
Rescued me from unholy bands
Redemption! His gift to me
Liberated! His love to be
My Precious, My Saviour, He lives
Evermore, in Him I believe

From The Ashes

From the ashes of despair
Let our song rise
From the dusts and tears
Bounce back into the Light
Begone! Unbelief
Our Saviour! He lives

Chant your songs, raise that voice
Breathe again, make it your choice
The past ain’t got power over you
Follow the Light, don’t stay down
From the ashes, rises a new you
For the dust can’t keep you down
