Stand Up & Fight

A life worth living
Is a life worth fighting for
Don’t be afraid you will lose the fight
Don’t be afraid of the fight
Don’t be afraid of failing
But
Be terrified of never trying
Be terrified of the regrets of
“What would have happened if I tried?”

Martin Luther King Jnr fought
Martin Luther the Reformist fought
Mose fought
David fought
Peter fought
The early Church fought
Jesus Christ died fighting

They all fought, some died fighting and some didn’t. But they fought for what they believed in and they all won even though some of them were not around to see the results of their fight.

Don’t be afraid to fight!

Don’t run away from the fight because others did.
Don’t back down because others failed.
Your storyline is different and your end would likely be different. But how would you know what the end holds if you back down now and quit.

So fight!
Fight for your dreams, for your health,
Fight for your family, for your children.
Fight for your career, for your future.
Fight for your life!
Don’t give in to fear.

My story
I have been afraid to fail again because I failed twice.
I have been afraid to try because of my past mistakes.
My fear crippled me and held me bound.
Then I asked myself, how many times did Thomas Edison failed?
I will fight! I will not be afraid to fail.
I’m breaking out from this bondage of fear.
I will stand my ground!
I will stand up!
I will stand firm!
And fight for what I believe, what I am passionate about because I believe it’s worth fighting for! And I know who I am!

“I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a Child of God” (Jonathan & Melissa Helser)

My Friend for a Lifetime

I have a friend
Sincere and radiantly lovely
Intelligent, greatly wise
With a great sense of humour
God’s gracious gift to me

I have a friend
Gentle and radiantly sweet
I am his beloved
Surely he is mine
God’s loving gift to me

I have a friend
My heart is safe with him
The true love of my life
For worse, for better or for best
God’s perfect gift to me

Dedicated to my beloved husband, my friend for a lifetime.

Temporal Insanity

At times I’m foolish
At times, ungrateful
I go off a tangent
I walk out on You
In search of fool’s gold
Exploring my insanities
Temporarily I am my king
Temporarily I am for me

Your endless Love
In close pursuit, relentless
Many times I change
You remain the same
Forgive my temporal insanity
Lord I’m Yours
Always Yours

(A Poem of Sorts)

I Know Who I Am – I Am A Woman of God

If there’s one thing I’m happy about
I’m happy I’m a girl or… a woman
I love to dress up, heels and all
I love to make up, mascara and all
Matching shoes and bag is my thing
I love fashion and I like looking trendy
I love pink, purple, blue, green and red
I love to nurture, to care, to love
I love roses, cards and chocolates
I may not like period pains
I may cry over labour pains
I may have crushes and heartbreaks
I may not have a pointed nose,
A curvy shape or blue eyes
But I’m a girl, I’m a woman
I’m a sister, I’m a daughter,
I’m a mother, I’m a wife…
I know who I am
That’s who God made me
That’s who I am,
And I’m proud it is so

Happy International Women’s Day to every woman out there 👠👠👗👒💝💝

I Have A Friend

Oh the beauties
Of pure love and great friendship
When freedom prevailed
And liberty leapt with joy
When words poured seamlessly
And mute was an ancient call
When laughter roared to the skies
As friends reminisced with joy

A good friend is like sweet medicine
Like a fresh daffodil on a Spring morning
Like a cool shade from a gusty breeze
Like a frozen ice cream on a hot Sunday
A gentle smile, a warm hug, hope triumphed

Fights & forgiveness
Cries & joys
Sacrifice, fellowship, love;
A good heart that loves to the end
That’s what makes a good friend great

I Return

I told Him I didn’t need Him anymore
(Or so I thought)
I took all that I had
I left

He told me He will always be there for me
(I didn’t believe it)
I took all He gave me
I left

I made friends, the wrong kind
I spent money, the wrong way
I lived my life, the unholy way
Days into months, months into years
I had nothing, I had no one, but me

Destitute, hungry, ashamed and alone
Pigs became my best friends
Pig’s husks became my best food
Stuck in the depths of my sins and regrets
I realised, I knew I needed Him

I need You Lord, the Lifeline I depend on
I run back to You away from these husks
You took me back, and gave me the best
I return broken, bruised; free to be Yours
I return, to be who You made me to be
Your child

Spring Has Come

Hope springs like snowdrops
At the twilight of wintry chills
Barren trees embrace life
At the surge of gusty cool winds
Winter’s frosty touch
Gradually fades away
Outbreaks of sunshiny spells
Remind us Spring has come

Hope springs like daffodils
At the dusk of dark ensnaring paths
Faith rises to embrace Light
At the reach of redemptive Grace
Sin’s deathly grip
Unshackled from desperate souls
Outbreaks of mercy and peace
Assures us Life has come

God Leads Us Along

Some through the waters, some through the flood
Some through the fire, but all through the blood
Some through great sorrow, but God gives a song
In the night season and all the day long
(A beautiful encouraging song by Gaither Vocal Band)

God is not after the mistakes we’ve made, nor is He interested in our past errors. He is never quick to apportion blame. He is gracious in mercy. These mistakes may cause pain, hurt and some disappointment. Tears may rain down our cheeks endlessly as we sit and ponder in the deafening silence on the outside and the great hurt we feel inside.

Therein in that pain He wants us to come to Him, no, to RUN to Him with arms wide open. To take His hand and let Him hold, comfort and lead us through it all.
Until we let Him, He cannot come in. He’s a gentle Spirit, He doesn’t demand by force.

No one may truly understand what we’re going through but we must be rest assured, God surely does. Only Him can heal, help and restore.

Only God can mend a broken heart. When that heart is given to Him.

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

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

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

Broken Windows

 

4F2D6ECD-9EB1-4D2D-84AE-FFB028E383A5

As many hands build a house
So does many hearts make a home
(Unknown)

So many shut doors
So many broken windows 
Poker faces and hurting hearts
Drowned dreams and silent sighs

Only love turns a house into a home
Only love draws the heart to its home

Best Friends Forever

B4B5E3C4-DC1A-4F08-ACC4-36B1B3F38691

Friendship is love
Love is friendship,
For great friends love you
Just the way you are
Without giving up on you,
And the power of our love
Makes us best friends forever

“There are “friends?”, there are acquaintances, there are buddies, etc.; but, there is a friend that is always closer, nearer and greatly available more than a brother.”
