​You are,

A painter’s touch

The spring of existence 

A sculptor’s hand

The root of creation

A poet’s word

The psalm of David.
You are,

The beauty of a broken branch;

The mockery of perfection.
You are,

The courage in Daniel;

The bravery in David,

The strength of a thousand warriors,

A ray in the rain,

The dance in Jehoshaphat.
You are the reason the sun meets the Earth in an endless horizon.
You are God’s brush strokes.

BEING A GOD

Posted: March 26, 2017 in Uncategorized

​Being a God must be lonely,

No friends to have lunch with

Just worshipers trying to get their bread for living.
Being a God must be lonely,

No one to take a stroll with

Or talk about what a long day you had to deal with.

Just whiners pointing out the things they found lacking on their plates.
Being a God must be lonely,

No one to really ask

How are you doing.

​We had moments that took to the wind,

We had laughter’s that got lost in the storm,

We had aspirations that sunk beneath the currents

We took to the waves in the wrong direction

We made choices that pushed the shores further away

Now we drown in our doubts as our lungs struggles to hold unto life. 

If we could float up to the surface and just start all over again,

That would make a difference.

​Broken wings?

Don’t wallow in defeat,

Time they say does the healing,

But the clocks ticking

Is a sign of an ending.

To do great things,

Is to rise to your feet.

Don’t give in to decay

You’ve been winged from birth,

Flap and soar

But this time,a little higher

​In time past,the thought has flown

Countless times my mind beholds

What it would feel like to be hit on a road.

Being alone on this route,

It is hard to believe when told

Couples past here since old

And came out whole.

With my heart in pieces

I struggle to breath.

In order to test this theory

I must try to live

But in order to live

I must die through my pen.

I write death away.

I would write till it gets to you,

Let me write

So you can live.

How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.”~ William Shakespeare

The other day I was going through my friend’s (Itofa) blog, he wrote a lovely piece on kindness that got me thinking…
I remember one faithful day I boarded a bus home beside me sat a guy. I can’t really remember how we started chatting but he was on his way to see a friend when his phone battery died making it impossible for him to call his friend and get direction to the house. He asked if I could lend him my battery to call his friend (take my battery out of my phone and give it to him). I just met this guy and he was asking me to remove my phone battery. I thought it over in my head, well what’s the worst that can happen from being kind to a stranger? So, I obliged, took out my battery and he used it.

  That was six years ago!
  Ever since then we have been great friends, I’ve learnt a lot from him.His dreams are so big and so specific, year after year I’ve watched him grow into the man he has always wanted to be,I’ve watched God use him to bless many lives just by observing him I’ve learnt alot and I wouldn’t have gotten to know someone this amazing if I hadn’t shown a little kindness that day.
  A little kindness here and there goes a long way.
In prov3:3 the Bible said”do not let kindness and truth leave you…

And in Heb13:2a”do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers”
  In the book of Acts chapter 28 when Paul and his guys arrived an Island called Melita, they were soaked to the bone because it rained. The people of the island showed them kindness by building a fire so the apostles could sit around,they dried them up and gave them a place to sleep.

In verse 8 it was recorded that the father of the chief who took them in was sick with fever and a bloody flux, Paul healed him. 

On hearing this others that were sick around came out and were healed. Due to the kindness this people showed the apostles their Island became a healing ground that night.

The benefits of kindness are enormous.

Kindness brings about happiness . Just watching peoples countenance change when you’ve done something good for them is enough to lighten your mood making you happy and increase your self esteem because you were part of bringing someone Joy.

Kindness boosts better relationships, it shows people we value them and that they matter.

As Ralph Waldo Emerson rightly said “It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself”.

In being kind/helping others we are indirectly helping ourselves. 

A lot of Jesus’s work on earth was starggered by compassion. See

*Luke 7:13-“when the Lord saw her He felt compassion for her…

*matt15:32-“And Jesus called His disciples to Him and said”I feel compassion for the people…

*matt9:36-“seeing the people,He felt compassion for them…

*matt20:34-“moved with compassion Jesus touched their eyes….

And on and on.
Live a life of kindness,just a little smile can change someone’s entire day.

     If my life was music
I will discover beauty in all things

Like the melody erupting

From the skillful fingers of raindrops

on the rooftop

Mingling with the ground

In orchestral symphony.
If my life was music

I would have lyrics blazing

From within like Jeremiah

Flaming with life

Till it reaches a crescendo

Where everyone’s soul pops with glee.
If my life was music

I would have lyrics tasting

Sweet as Ezekiel’s scroll

On the tongues of all

Who wants to take a bite

Till all bitter hearts be done with bile
If my life was music

Like deafening sound of thunder

Or as a priest with a shofar

I will take his praises to unknown sea shores

Causing endless flow of symphony.
If my life was music

I will hum to the Heavens

With melody in my heart

I will tune my mind to the benevolent

Ambience of His presence.
If my life was music

I will sing with largesse

In unknown languages

Because I have been skilled sparingly
If my life was music

I will bring to life

That concert within me

Erupting like a lava

Responding to deuteronomy 4:24
If my life was music

Silence would seize to exist

I will proclaim from the mountains

Teaching the world songs of His goodness
If my life was music

With my ten strings

To the rhythm of life’s blues

I will sway

As I observe how powerful He is
