Angels In Disguise

IMG_2694

Soft whispers to God,
“Teach me to read, to write,
To understand the wonders
Of Your creation”,
He answered my prayer-
He sent me an angel in disguise,
He gave me a teacher.

Poet’s Notes:
I have to find patience and wisdom everyday to manage 2 children. So I sincerely applaud those who have to manage 30 children every day, 5 days a week. Teachers really do amazing jobs both in teaching and in role modelling.

P – Prayer, Perseverance and Patience

Pray about your dreams, your aspirations and how far you want to go in life. Pray about every detail of your plan. Don’t take anything for granted, pray about it.

Does your plan involve writing? Pray for unprecedented inspiration, wisdom, articulated thoughts , creativity, availability of time and resources, etc.

Does your dream involve job creating? Pray for your staff, the building, sourcing of equipment, legal and licensing issues, the local authority or whoever you need to see in furtherance to your plans, etc. Does your plan involve personal growth? Family issues? Your children? Your business/company? Your studies? Your walk with God? Your ministry? Whatever it may be, pray about it.
God is interested in every bit of our lifes and is never too bored with the details. You may say you don’t know how to pray, just take your plans, kneel down and talk to God about them. That’s all there is to it. Pray to Him and empty your desires and deep wishes to Him. “When we delight ourselves in the Lord, He gives us the desires of our hearts” -Psalms 37:4.

Perseverance and Patience. I have to briefly reiterate this point again, you need to persevere in prayer and in waiting. Every good thing takes a while to materialise. Be patient, don’t be in a hurry and miss vital issues and/or opportunities. In time, your patience, perseverance and prayers would surely pay off because somehow and in someway, God still answers prayers.

Do You Have A Happy Place?

Do u have a happy place?
I have a happy place, a peaceful corner, my quiet hour with the Lord.
Sometimes I go in with a heavy mind, with all my worries, frets and struggles.

Do you know what happens in there?
Let me tell you what happens in there-
I lay all my fears and doubts in there.
I lay all my frustrations and shortcomings in there.
I entrust all my plans and hopes in His care.
I entrust all my visions and passions in His care.
I listen for His still small voice in there.
I listen for His instructions and corrections in there.
I embrace His forgiveness and mercy in there.
I embrace His grace and peace in there.

Do u have a happy place?
Do you have a happy place, a peaceful corner, a quiet hour with the Lord?
When I come out, I’m happy as a bunny, as light as a feather, no qualms.

Lean on Me, Child

Despair and despondency as you hit the peak of your worst nightmare,
You reach out in search of hope, but, you’re like the blind, groping in the dark,
Lost in blank empty thoughts, tears well up and stream down your face endlessly,
Everything you believed in and worked for has crumbled, like a pack of dominoes,
The special delicacy you once relished has lost all its sweetness to your palate,
Life in itself has become a daunting unbearable task, a dark lonely road,
You desperately search for a reason to live and carry on, but you find none.

You cry out in tears,
“Hold me close, never let me go. Let me hear Your voice, only You can save me”.

Silence.

Then, He replies,
“I’m closer to you than your next breath, I’m here for you. I will help you go through it and give you strength for every step of your journey, I will not desert you.”
“Lean on Me child and I will give you rest”.

Daily Prompt: Relish

The Search for HopeA Sky for You

My Lifetime Journey…

He prayed. He sought.
He searched. I’m found.
He looked. I blushed.
He talked. I heard.
He asked. I agreed
His ring. I took.
We hugged. We talked.
We planned. We spent.
We found love. We told families.
We got married. We had babies.
We fought. We argued.
We reconciled. We kissed.
We laugh together.
We cry together.
We work together.
We eat together.
We play together.
We pray together.
Nine years together.
We still love each other.
God brought us together.
Lord, keep us together.

Heaven’s Shore- Our final Beach

Tempest and storms on seas assail
As we sail unto heaven’s shore
His grace, His Word will lead us on
Against each tide we shall prevail

How we trust our Father’s hand
To lead us all safely home
Fear not Pilgrim, do journey on
Soon on heaven’s shore we’ll stand

Holy Spirit give us strength
Sin does beckon with every tide
Draw us near towards Your side
Dark lusty waves are not our friend

Let heaven’s breeze carry us on
Let every prayer prove our course
Each heart rejoicing with praise to God
As we sail unto heaven’s shore

In response to our daily post word: BeachJourney
