I can’t help but stir and wonder at your beauty. It is more stunning then a million sunsets and has a greater sparkle then an ocean of stars. The galaxy is caught by Suprise at true beauty’s sight, and gasp it’s breathe in awe of you. Your presence cause stars, moons and planets to orbit around you. One day you’ll tell me your name beautiful Kreature for we have yet to met.
On Sunday 28th of July the world lost a precious treasure,we say farewell to Tinyiko Khosa. My neighbor and my friend. Whose smile changed peoples hearts. We where not as close as many others had the privilege of getting to know her, to her I may have just been the boy next door. In a world filled with work and no time to waste people running up and down, you never know how valuable the people around you are. You have found your way to my heart and when I heard of what had happened I wished and asked God if I may take your place and battled with the question that has plagued use for generations why? Why why. I remember the good times I saw hared with you, even while it was so brief, each moment I’ll cherish in my heart. Your the first girl that gave me confidence in myself when I had none and that’s a story that will remain with me till I depart this world. I wish I could have spent more time getting to know you, visiting you more, you added value in to peoples life’s instead of subtract form it. Those are the things I’ll never be able to do but I find peace in hearing the good life and accomplishment you achieved in this Memorial Day. And above all you had a relationship with our Father in heaven. You motivate me to continue to do my best in whatever I strive to do. Ps I hope you can see all the people you have touched in some way or another today, Rest In Peace!
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.”

this is a short clip of where i came from and i hope many of you can relate with this poem.
My blood boils
My heart yarns for more
Your love is an ocean that never runs dry
From the top of my head to the
Soul of my feet will seek your face.
You are the first thought in my wake
And the last thought when I sleep.
Drench my soul with you love
For the Lamb was slain.
For The Christ was put to death.
Washing away all my iniquities
The love that I have for you
Has no words to define it.
Like sweet honey
And the sweet aroma of a perfume is your Love is for me.
As my lungs still take breathe
Till my last breathe.
I will glorify your Name above all other.
I can smell it
I can sense it, Anxiety.
It’s a stench that I can’t seem to wash off.
Pressure coming at me from my right to left.
And all around me.
The four corner of this walls are suffocating me.
Expectations weighing my heart down.
I am all but whole,
But not alone.
Single but not lonely.
Forever falling in loving, with me.
In this season
Between birth & death.
A time frowned upon my
The young & the old.
That only come once in a life time.
Like sand of time in an hour glass.
Once gone never to return
I am single but never alone.
I am single but never lonely.
I find joy in the time I spend with self
Time to know who I am
Time to discover my purpose
Time to fulfill my destiny on earth.
Life is a gift
Most precious kind.
We only given one life to live
To be who I was created to be.
I am single but never alone
You’re a beacon on the light house
A light that can’t be hidden.
Your light shines bright in darkest night.
Directing my path and leading me.
Beautiful are your feet,
For you bring good tidings.
His Word is a lamp to your feet
And a light to your path.
The Lord directs your steps.
So you do not stumble.
Blessed are you, in your coming in
And you’re going out.
Blessed to be a blessing.
Fresh anointing, new oil,
God breathing life,
Resurrecting that which is dead.
Giving you a crown of life.
Heirs of royalty.
You were wonderfully and masterfully Made,
For such time as this.
TO MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS,
BAPTIZING THEM IN THE NAME OF THE
THE SON & THE HOLY SPIRIT
