David

DCE69B15-D160-4A80-8D36-54AD8F8280A8.jpegDavid was a shepherd boy ignored by his father, brothers and even Samuel the prophet like a discarded toy.

They saw only his appearance and concluded “He is irrelevant” but his Heavenly Father saw his heart and set him apart as significant.

Chosen by God the Father as one offered a signet ring, the prophet had no choice but to anoint David as king.

He defended his people by slaying Goliath when grown men trembled and fled in fear. A small feat for one with godly strength to defend sheep by fighting the lion and bear.

A wise and worshipful king he became, though a “foolish thing” to most he appeared as a boy.

Indeed many trials and suffering David did bare, but praise God the Father that abundant favour to David He did not spare.

Not only was David raised as king, but from his line came Chist Yeshua, the great Shepherd and King of kings.

Poem inspired from Biblical account of the life and trails of David, son of Jesse who became the king of Israel.

“God has chosen what is foolish in the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen what is weak in the world to shame the strong.” (1 Corinth. 1:27 CSB version)

God told Samuel the prophet about Himself “The LORD doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” (1 Sam 16:7 NLT)

Jesus said “Look beneath the surface so you can judge correctly…” (John 7:24 NLT)

Joseph

A29A5628-1CBE-4AB7-9862-E4340D0CE02A.jpegFamine, He called upon the land,
but God had a divine plan, so He sent Joseph His beloved son.

In slavery he was sold, in prison he was thrown but to save him there was none.

In God’s appointed time, the king had a dream, though among his gifted counsellors interpretation was no where found.

“But wait! a prisoner in chains is the key” uttered Pharaoh’s waiter with no charge or fee.

So Joseph void of strife, interpreted it as a message from God to preserve life.

His feet with fetters were loose so that matters of administration they could pursue, for the king “made him lord of his house, and ruler of …his substance …to teach his senators wisdom”(1), we know this to be true.

His earthly father’s coat of many colours was a childhood privilege, while heavenly Father’s many favours shows in adulthood his life spoke a clear message:
Set apart, to ensure men lived and did not die, a Christlike life given for many regardless of nationality, race or hue.

-Inspiration from the book of Genesis’ story of Joseph & Psalm 105.
-Quote (1)from Psalm 105 vs 22-23

Born to Excel

3018452C-513E-4EC6-AA4A-FFEBF9B80E45Your small strides to fulfil projects, achieve the impossible and bear great fruit even with a lot at stake.

Within your entrails dwells wisdom reaped from terrains of sweat, toil and many a mistake.

Tear buds will drain their tears of joy when others gain from the risks you take, so don’t give up on your dreams, nor ignore your gifts with thoughtless haste.

Born to excel, believe me, is your fate.

Where I Call Home

1632A9CB-5307-4C27-BE2E-CBAC57B1BD10

There are many towns, cities and countries I could choose, even where my mother and father were born.

But this is where I choose to call home. This place in your bosom. In that secret place, in that special room.

I have travelled miles searching for truth, looked here, there and everywhere, even in the stars and a-top a stony hill, but found it no where, except in this place I choose to call home.

I was invited to a so called feast of everlasting peace, only to drink the broth of chaos.

Then when I remembered where I first met the Prince of Peace, I made a fast retreat to that place I choose to call home.

When looking for that place, don’t take the broad way with tinsels aglow rather choose the narrow way, unbecoming but where truth and peace are in abundant flow.

My Restorer, Giver of Fortitude

My Restorer, giver of fortitude, to you I sing this song of gratitude.

As an object I was discarded, still I aligned with them though dejected. 

Then you came along and composed for me a new song. 

Love-filled lyrics sweet to my ears awakened my soul, ’til then among the lifeless throng.

My Restorer, giver of fortitude, to you I sing this song of gratitude.

You unlocked the truth of my worth and sang oracles to reveal the miracle of my birth.

With thanksgiving I eat of your goodness and drink from your fountains of joy.

With gladness I enter your gates of renewal, far away from the dungeons of those that destroy.

My Restorer, giver of fortitude, to you I sing this song of gratitude.

The Making of Us

Though the journey
has been long and hard,
been through peaks and troughs, the mountain top and valley, hiked in crooked and straight paths and walked with the mean and saintly, I can truly say “I’m happy to be me”.

There is a message deep within
to the struggling in whose minds gloom persists and wonder why they exist and with all their might happiness, they resist.

Accept the pains and strains as you do the gains and blessed rains ‘cause every grey cloud is but for a moment to learn in the present that the bitter as the sweet is just as relevant.

Relevant to turning the page to life’s next chapter.
Important to opening the door into a new pasture and significant to learning lessons, so you can truly say “I’m happy to be me”.

Becoming A Somebody

A nobody can become a somebody some day. If not today or tomorrow it shall be one day, ’cause everybody has the ability.

It is possible if you do not lose focus or direction but set your sights on your vision, based on wisdom from the book of instruction.

Use the key of divine knowledge to open doors. Advance at the beat of the sound of your vision calling,
the pace is set by the rhythm of the songs of your heart responding.

In the ascent to be a somebody, joys and trials are unwrapped as gifts, moulding for you a heart of integrity.

The blessed vision is a reflection of the somebody you have aimed to be beckoning as from the sky, full of wisdom and knowledge of the Most High.

Be a somebody today to help a nobody find their way some day.

Mommy dearest…(01)

Baby sleeping
Mommy dearest,
Your bosom was the pillow upon which I lay my weary head when I was told I had expired well past my used by date.

You inspired me to fight for what’s mine and see my blessed fate, even when my wretched soul wanted to give up and take flight.

Thank you mommy!
