The call is loud
The call is great
The call of a millions
The call of nations
Lost and afraid
Living aimlessly like sheep
No shepherd to be found.
Leaders to follow.
If you can hear the call?
It means that you were found
It means you have a shepherd
You have heard His voice.
You are now called to step up.
In all areas of life.
To share good tiding
To lead others into the light
Make disciples of every nation.
36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were [j]weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
My blood boil and my heart aches
I feel alone yet surrounded by many
A part of my fractured heart has given up on help coming.
I’ve become acquainted with showing friends and family a smile.
Yet my blood is boiling and keeps on boiling. I don’t know why maybe this is who I am. That the lie I tell myself.
I search this life for answers to cool down the hot magma that rises in me.
I’m afraid that one day, that lava will spill to those who live in the valley below. They praise me for the mountain that I am, for the soil and nutrients that I bring to their life’s and are blind to the dangers that I bring.
I am angry and don’t know why at times.
Maybe it’s the family dysfunction that causes the magma to swell up or the disappointment that tore my heart in times past.
Yes, the ocean is my hope.
You bring the wind to cool me down when I’m about to erupt. Your wind comforts my soul. Your water seeps into my entire being and restores me to a dormant state.
I yearn for the days when your high tide comes to my mountain shores. You bring the promise of hope and salvation, the village could not save me for they do not see nor know what lurks under the mountain.
The ocean is coming and the day has been set. For you promised to come to save me from all that I feel. Ocean you are vaster and greater than a single mountain you cover the earth and bring balance to what exists.
Lord my ocean I wait for you to save me.
From the pain l, the loneliness, and especially from my self. Teach me oh ocean to love myself. Like the peace exists in you the depth and with of love that you possess. Consume me for I desire to be one with you.
Lord to see more of you and know you
Is my heart greatest dream.
You are the one think I thirst for.
The bread that I grieve above all bread.
I thirst for being one with you.
To know you as I know my being.
May it be known that I no longer three but four parts in you.
I have a body, a soul and a spirit
& now I have your Holy Spirit whom is God.
Abide in me and I will abide you.
Ever draw near to me and I will to you.
You neither forsake nor leave me.
You are ever present God.
Adam and Eve,
Male and female.
From there nakedness,
God birthed fashion,
In the mist of their Shame.
Fashion started when we saw we were Naked.
He redeemed us from nakedness by clothing us,
With a thick coat of fabric and material made from animal skins.
Now that one moment in time,
Left a mark that will never fade.
Birthing the start of Fashion.
The material that now covers us.
Highlights the perfect imperfection in the Human body.
The beauty in the human design, with all its various shapes and curves.
God’s own creatures displayed on the world stage for all to stand in awe of his grand design.
Women and Men, walk the runway with boldness and fearlessness.
Showcasing the depthless treasure of beauty in the model that is men.
Opening the eyes, of designer to colour and fabric, inspiring create life in clothing.
And those in the stands or audience, stand in awe of all that fashion has shown then.
At the end, nakedness was meant to bring shame and death.
But Fashion brought hope, life and gave us a future.
# Gen 1:27
“So God created man in His own image of God He created him; both male and female”
SO he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was Naked, and I hid myself.”
The Lord my God is good.
You are fair and just.
Your mercy subdues me with your left hand
And with your right hand your hide me
You discipline only to correct.
You are blind to my iniquities,
As far as the east is from the west.
And your eyes search me for all that
Is good and holy. And you’re Face
Shines rays of heavens on earth.
“… I delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians and out of
The hand of all those who oppressed you, drove them out before you
And gave you their land.”
God has so much mercy and grace over our life, he is fair that he does not pass hash judgment that does not crash us but presses us like wine skin. He disciplines his children in an divine manner. He pour out grace that is enough to hide use from trouble and his eyes see no more all the sin we have committed Hebrew 8:12. His eyes search my mind, soul and heart for all that is good.
Jesus is the perfect model
1 John 1:5
This is the message which we have heard from Him and declares to you, That God is light and in Him is no darkness at all
Similarly in John 1:6-8
There was man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light , but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
- In God, there is no wickedness nor sin
- He came to be a light to all men
- He gave as a choice, so we can decide if we want it John 1:12 says
- He gave a promise to be a part of Him (sons & daughters).
The mark that shows we are his children (believers)
- Jesus says this is how you will know
- 1 John 2:3 keep His commandment (matt22:37-38)
- If we say we know him but don’t keep them we lie
- Walk just as Jesus Walk (1 cor 11:1)
- The above is nothing new it’s always been there
- My fear is that there are some who deceive themselves. Who claim to be in Christ but Walk outside of Him.
- When Walking with God is something intimate, something you know within you like you know your own Name
Out stumbling stone
Gird up the loins of your mind, be sober and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; as obedient children not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance
- God warns us of the dangers of not protecting your heart and mind. So that you will be able to resist the devils of this world and cause us to go astray
- God in this one verse God clearly says you have to be all in! There is no middle ground. Our hope are all sold out for Jesus.
- Hard hearts
Rom 1:21 Because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful but became futile thoughts and their foolish hearts were darkened… 24
Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity o that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of him who holds the power of death- that is, the devil- and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. For surely it’s not angels he helps, but Abraham’s descendants for this he had to be made like them, fully human in every way in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God and that might make atonement for sins of the people. Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those are being tempted.
- Jesus had to be like us man in every way so we could be set free
- He paid the highest price for us
- He has suffered and been tempted and understand us and so he is best qualified to make a partition for us
- When you stumble run to the cross
- When you’re tempted run to the cross
- When it seems life is against you, continue to run to him
Being human means that we are floured and will not always do what is right, but it is through Jesus we are made Perfect by His blood.
I stand in darkness
No light to see what’s ahead of me
And behind me.
My heart pounding
Fighting to stay alive
A little longer.
Hope flitting day in and out.
How long can I hold on
Is it almost Friday.
My head yearns to find a place
To lay my head.
Rest and a place of peace
A place where joy abounds
And there is no darkness in sight.
‘the times your really missing spending time with God😥 and hopelessness trying to swipe you of your feet’
Knock knock knock!
Sin knocks at my door
Asking to enter
With each knock I’m tempted to open the door
Don’t know how much longer
I can hang on.
So tempted promising pleasure
To satisfy my need to be loved.
To fill the whole church could not fill.
To fulfill my every need.
The sense of just being in peace.
Trust me, it can deliver.
Lust is my craving
My body craves it like a drug
That promises to give a high,
That will make everything okay.
My being thrown in to the storm
My spirit fights me.
Trying to safe my life.
The underdog that victory
Looks far from reality
In the end I am only human.
Who am I?
Fighting a fight that can’t be won.
Sin is my weakness
Sin is trying to sell me American dream.
I hear a quiet voice saying
Sin can be conquered.
It may look impossible
But it’s possible.
One men won it war for all men
So I can stand in victory
Sin nailed to the cross too never resurrect.
Jesus proved it and lived it.
Satan the is the liar promising
A short moment of fame
But destroy your happily forever ever.
Jesus is the answer
He is the church
Enter into His body
Eat and Remember who He is
“I am the Church
Ready to save you at a moment’s notice.”
