Peace At The Crossroads

IMG_3030

Lost.
Confused.
Uncertainty looms.
Uncertain of what I want.
Uncertain of what You want, Lord.

Guide me.
Lead me.
Show me,
Your way.

You ask,
“What do you want?”
I say,
“Whatever You want, that I want,
You know me better.”
You say,
“Peace.
I give you My peace.
My peace, shall guide you, into My will.”

Peace.

Poet’s notes:
Some weeks ago, out of excitement and some great confidence in myself I took a bold step of faith and ventured into something new. It is what I want but, if it pulls through, the opportunity costs are high.
Now, I’m asking myself whether I am willing to make the sacrifice it demands. I’m really wondering what I’m doing, honestly I’m not sure. I prayed asking God for directions, to know His will and purpose concerning it. God assured my heart that I will find peace in His will. And this is truth through all the ages: when we find ourselves at crossroads, we must always remember that His peace and that unwavering deep assurance beyond understanding guards and guides us into His purpose for our lives. Amen.
#Shalom

You Put A Spell On Me

You put a spell on me,
Like one in a trance,
Eyes burrow into my thoughts,
Words burn within,
Spellbound- unfathomable love!
In a daze I open my life,
In a jiffy You dethrone my old heart-
Waterworks, in buckets,
Droplets of joy, ruined mascara…
Lies and lustful manipulations,
All gone!
Good riddance! Bad rubbish!
Divine metamorphosis!
Absolute transformation!
A new heart! A new life!
Saved… Changed… I am!

Daily Prompt: Trance

His Great Name

Demons scamper and hide,
Principalities quiver and shake,
Our lips hum new melodies,
Our hearts revive and reignite,
At the mention of His great name,
My Refuge, my Rock, my Help
My Saviour, my Hiding Place,
Jesus.

Daily Prompt: Scamper

All Paid For

IMG_2028

To see the Jesus reign and rule in the hearts of men all over the world.

Father and Son
Dwelling
In perfect harmony
Until that evening
When the Son
Bore on Him
The sins of whole world
On a hill faraway
His loving Father
Cringed
And turned away
From His beloved Son

Even today
Our loving Father
Cringes away,
When we
Indulge in sin
Hear him call,
“Come to Me child,
My Beloved Son
Has paid the price
For your sins”

Daily Prompt: Cringe

Let Your Light Shine

Like a plain crisp paper
Carrying graceful words of God
Let my life be a medium of God’s:

Light to those in darkness
Joy to the bereaved
Wisdom to the simpleminded
Warning to the rebellious
Grace to the saints
Faith to the doubtful
Liberty to those in bondage

Most importantly, Oh Lord,
Let my life be:
A medium for the gospel of Jesus
To the unbelieving world
A medium of God’s love letter
To the lost sinner

“Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”- Matthew 5:16

Not A Portion, Take All

Not some part of my day
Be in all of it
Not a speck of my time
Take all of it
Not a portion of my heart
Occupy all of it
Not a little of my life
Lord, live through all of it
All the time, everywhere
All the way, anywhere

Daily Prompt: Portion

The Garden, The Cross, The Throne

Alone, in the dark, for the task He grieved
All night my Lord prayed seeking a relieve
The weight of the cross a burden He bore
He groaned in pain, His knee on the floor

Denied by Peter, who wept with remorse
Betrayed by Judas- a greedy reward
Scorned by soldiers, forsaken by His Father
For sinners’ reprieve, a Lamb for slaughter

Dead and buried, He laid in the tomb
Enemies of God rejoiced in His doom
Conquering the grave, He rose from the dead
Everlasting King, on His throne He rests

Daily Prompt: Reprieve

Hebrews 11:1

Hebrews 11:1
“Now faith is the SUBSTANCE of things hoped for, the EVIDENCE of things not seen.”

Substance means – the real physical matter of which a person or thing consists and which has a tangible, solid presence; the most important or essential part of something; the real or essential meaning (Oxford dictionary)

The most important? The essential part? Who else in heaven or on earth can such meaning fit so perfectly?  Who is the essential and important part of our faith? The real meaning and the Solid proof our faith?

There’s none other except our Lord Jesus Christ. The fullness of God dwells in Him bodily which includes the fullness of our faith. He is the Substance, the Evidence, the Tangibility, the Reality of  our hope in God, the Author and the Finisher of everything we pray and desire from God. The Proof that God answers prayers, the core undeniable evidence that with God all things are possible. For how can we explain the miracle of the virgin birth? Or fathom a logical reason for how God came and dwelt with man? Or even explain the empty grave and resurrection? The evidence of these truths is found in Him alone.
Jesus- the absolute evidence of God’s existence to man.

Romans 8:32
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Light Has Come!

image

Deep in the tunnels of rage
Bound in the chains of hate
Darkness surrounding like a gate
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

Drowning in the oceans of sin
Buried in its seabed within
Lust enslaving like a gin
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

Crouching in the corners of guilt
Ashamed with the depth of your filth
Hiding in the covers of your quilt
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

Wallowing in wounds of the past
Vowing to avenge with a blast
Pining with emotions of downcast
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

May the Light of the gospel shine into our hearts and draw us nearer to the Lord, Amen.
