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.

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

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

Lazarus! Come forth!

img_2099

When the impossibilities of our lives
Weaken our resolutions
Let the possibilities of our God
Strengthen our convictions;
When the impossibilities of our lives
Take us to our knees
Then, we are in the best place
To unleash even faith like a mustard seed
In the unlimited possibilities of our God

#lazarus come forth!

Look At The Big Picture

4FB982EB-63EB-40F4-AA42-D308E1156AD4

Look at the big picture 
The tears, the change, the solitude, the sadness 
Understand the ultimate purpose 
He that holds the world in His hands 
He is holding you through this journey 

Look at the big picture:
God is able

In Retrospect…

E6F925F8-1756-4EE3-B897-5BFF03046320

In retrospect,
The times I have grown more
The times I have learned more
The times I have experienced God more
They were the times when I went through turbulent seasons in life.

When on the verge of drowning
His hand drew me out from deep within,
When my faith tipped
His love quenched my fearful thoughts,
When uncertainty made my feet unsteady
His light shone brighter than ever,
When the waves rocked my boat
“Don’t be afraid”, He gently said;

In retrospect,
The more I was faint, feeble and weak,
Then, His strength made me stronger.

On A Mission…Praises

E3B833A7-9EDD-4045-950C-59B6E8ACF1DB

I am on a mission…
To proclaim His graciousness 
To extol His loving kindness 
To show forth His faithfulness 
To flaunt His goodness 

Hence, 
I let go my praises
I release my gratitude 

To tell of His unconditional love
On this mission, I am.

GOD IS.

38C17580-C860-44AC-A752-F3067D162054

Who told the stars to twinkle at night?
How did the babbling bubbly brook
Know its boundaries?
Who told Autumn to come after Summer?
Who affixed the great blue skies
Securely above, as if with a glue?

Who told the trees to breath in carbon?
And breath out oxygen?
Then who made man to breath in oxygen
And breath out carbon?

Who told the rains… the birds…

GOD IS.

The Horsemen

 

4F79A8B5-BF4E-4C1D-B796-3FAC43D1FDA2

The tides are turning 
The horsemen are coming,
That which was once afar
That has caught up at last,
Folded tools to digging holes
Folded shirts to sweaty hands,
Hardy Horsemen!
Emissaries of Strength!
Bearing hope to feeble strides!
Bearing faith to doubtful hearts!
We waited, we prayed
We believed, we planned,
Time and his horsemen are coming
Harbingers of dreams come true;

We dared to believe in God
We dared to stand and fight 
We shall do our part 
When Time comes
Will surely do His part, Our God

Day & Night

9D01B3D1-7A3F-4D61-8C81-8295B8308857

Parallel lines
Two straight liners that never meet
No matter how extensive they run

Life within Christ v Life without Christ
Spirituality v Carnality
Light v Darkness
Day v Night
Two parallel lifes that never mix
No matter how extensive life runs

We cannot serve God and mammon
Either we are for Christ or against Him
Either we walk with Him or not
There’s no middle ground or sitting on the fence
Because…

The kingdom of God and the kingdom of Darkness
Are two parallel lines that do not mix

“Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?
What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?” 2 Corinthians 6:14-15
