YOUR ROAD, YOUR GOLD

YOUR ROAD YOUR GOLD

Isn’t it so

All that glitters is not gold

Focus on your road

Stay true to your own

 

Chase your purpose

Work your seeds to growth

Set high goals

Bring not your values low

 

Challenges will shoot their arrows

With your shield be ready and bold

Distractions will throw their stones

Be unbeatable and let it show

 

Build the talents that unfold

Be extraordinary like it’s never been told

Build your character also

Be strong yet soft as rose

 

Some things are never to be sold

Your joy, passion and soul

On the mountain or in valley low

Never let your spirit go cold

 

Those who patiently go

Ever trusting in the God on the throne

Those who live their lives so

Good success awaits, this I know!

 

No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead,  I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.”

Philippians 3:13-14 (NLT)

YOUR LOVE

pexels-photo-207962 (1)

It’s your love

The air I breathe

It’s your love

The song I sing

 

Your love never gives up on me

It heals and sets me free

When I’m too blind to see the wrongs

Your love pulls me out of where I don’t belong

 

Your love is my wisdom nudge

Your love prunes rather than judge

Your love is my trust

The air of my lungs

 

Your love gives me rest

Your love sends me help

Your love favours me beyond what could be earned

Undeserving yet your love gives me the best!

 

Your love takes me to places

I sit with great faces

Your love gives me great grace

Grace beyond the race

 

In your love I’ll stay

Even when it seems I’m being slayed

‘Cos I’ve seen you work all things for my good

You are God! Ever faithful ever true!

 

Keep me in your love

There’s nowhere else I belong

I’m nothing without your love

Nothing without you my Sun!

 

 

“But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.”  Psalm 86:15

“Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.” Psalm 63:3

 

THE FIGHT

fight imag

Sometimes I wish I knew the best way to fight

I wish every darkness found in me enough light

I wish I did it right each time

But still I keep on the fight

 

Sometimes in my corner I cry

While I ponder the way to try

I pray for the road that’s wise to ply

I let godly wisdom shine its light

 

Sometimes it feels I’ve lost my might

I slip yet hang on so tight

I search for strength within me it lies

I start again the fight for my life

 

Through all these plights

There’s no giving up the fight

Even the weakest breath can fight

Cos life is hope and hope is life

 

I fight not feeding myself lies

I fight not as a perfect child

I fight I just keep on the fight

Till I master this art day and night

 

Against odds I fight

Against odds I smile

Against odds I shine

Against odds I feel alive!

LIFE IS A THRILL

Inage Joy

How Could I think
Life is a thrill?
With all of its ups and downs
With all of the fights for crowns

All the risks it brings
The joy then the pains we feel
The falls that feel like a pit
The struggles for the peak

Still life’s beauty is real!
Oh life is a thrill!
We can laugh and shout it loud
We can sing and dance it out

And in our choice of calmness
We can enjoy our mind’s soundness
Our morning can be full of smiles
No matter the tears our eyes fought at night

It’s our joy of choosing peace
The understanding that life’s in seasons
The nature of beauty, the beauty of nature
An unending hope for every creature

Oh life is a thrill!
The blessing of a heartbeat
The blessing of a winning spirit
Against odds knowing no limits!

The blessing of faith, work and trust
Relentless diligence and radical love…
The knowing that great rewards will come
No matter the storms or scotching sun

Life is a thrill!!!
Even on this street…
My life remains a thrill
till my palace finds me!

THE PROMISE THAT NEVER FAILS

He that puts his trust in man

Making him his greatest pal

Praising him with all names

Will see nothing but shame

 

Man may promise to impress

Or cheer-up the distressed

But the moment his promise’s been said

He may forget all but himself

 

The promise that never fails

The promise that God says

Our confidence in Him alone

Gives us more than we ever know

 

In His promise is direction and light

In His promise is abundant life

In His promise is unending wealth

In His promise is health and strength

 

In His promise are those ‘Godsend’–

People and resources He sends for our help

In Him is all that we need

To become all we must be

 

 

It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes. Psalm 118:8-9

 

MEDITATION: GOD is enough.

 

 

THE JUSTIFIED

The stuttering Moses

Like a thorn amidst roses

Fighting for his own to the extreme

Once a baby at the stream….

 

The Jesses’ youngest – David

Ruddy and not lazy

Forgotten by loved ones

When he went shepherding the flocks

 

The Jewish Esther

An orphan so tender

In total obedience to her helper-

Her dear family member

 

The promiscuous Rahab

In kindness radiant

Hiding the spies from danger

Of Jericho’s rangers

 

Moses had no smooth voice

Yet he was the Lord’s choice

In Jesse’s house, David was most irrelevant

But to God he was the most significant

 

Esther though a ‘nobody’

At the palace God made her a ‘somebody’

And Rahab the one known as a harlot

From her lineage God brought the Messiah forth

 

Just to mention a few

Of all that God chose and made new

Proving that He doesn’t choose the qualified

But the justified who He now qualifies

 

Knowing that we have been called

Not because we were strong

We must live to give Him glory

Through all of our Life’s story

 

For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the thing that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God – and righteousness and sanctification and redemption- that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.”  1 Corinthians 1:26-31

 

 

THOSE THINGS…

Our troubles
Our struggles
Those things that make us fret
Are only a stepping stone to strength…


Our shame
Our pain
Those things that make us feel ‘lame’
All have a way of leading to gain…


Our errors
Our failures
Those vices that make us feel lost
Are sometimes moulding a better us…


Our ‘defeat’
And all that make us unfit
Those soar parts of our story
Do have a way of leading to victory…


Our tears
Our fears
Those things we dread to face
Are to be used to build our courage…


Keep breathing
Keep believing
Keep living with strong hope
Dwell not on the stones life throws…


Never give up
Even when it's tough
Let out good attitudes
Like that of gratitude…


There’s an end
A product of faith or fear
What you believe
That, you’ll receive….
