Fire on my feet
Fire on my toes
Fire all around me.
Consumed with what’s people say is best.
But what’s always best for other can’t always be best for me.
I’m developing a heart condition, something is weighing on my heart and it won’t leave till I get it off my chest. And confront it.
A heart soaked in Tears
My heart is soaked in tears.
Tears that continue to flow.
My mind thrown into chaos.
Clouded my others opinion.
My true heart,
Shine a path for me.
Will I take it?
God give me strength too. And the courage and wisdom to follow my heart.
Love God, Love people
Love people, love the world.
Love is accompanied by change
Any value + love = change.
(X+ love= change)
Love is essential.
Love is key
Love People = changing hearts & minds.
Love a person change a life
Love a people change a nation
Love a nation change the world
A planet in tears for change…
From the poor
From the sick
From the orphans
From the cries of the abused.
Loving GOD + Loving People & the World = To Changed societies and nations.
Did you know each time you feed the poor you are feeding Jesus, or give cloths you give to Him. Even when you visit someone in prison. In Matthew 10:40-45. You don’t have to go far to make a difference where you are is just fine. Start something that will benefit others. The best live lived is one that is in service of others.
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 And the King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you id for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.’

This is a story about two people a boy and a girl. Love has bloom early and the aroma of young love is in the air. A sent of jasmine flower that pulls your heart. This tail tells of two 16 year old’s named Will & Jannat, who grow up in a small quiet little town of Jackson Valley.
Will was a young boy with curly hair and a dark chocolate skin color, he blended in like every teenager in school. Will was setting in class when a new transfer student Jannat walked in class. Will starred at her as if time had stopped, Will noticed that she had hair as smooth as silk and her eyes were hazel brown. At that moment. Will felt something beating in is heart he could not explain for someone he had never met. He knew on the inside he did not want the feeling to end.
Mrs Adams introduced Jannat to the class and gave her a seat away from Will to sit for the rest of the year. Class commenced and the period went forward. Jannat was new to the school she was nervous and had not even found one friend yet. She was pretty shy for that whole first week, she barely noticed Will watching her from a distance with eyes of admiration. She later made a new friend named Sarah who would soon be her best friend. They became inseparable as school year continued.
Will day in and day out finally figured out that “wow I think I like Jannat”. It was the first time for Him. He came to a realisation and acceptance of this, a week of meeting the wonderful Jannat. With each passing day Will would attend same classes with Jannat and would occasionally speak to her and they would make small talk. Each passing day, Will would like her more and more. And eventually this feelings became love.
Time has passed and it was the Third quarter of the school year. Jannat finally confessed to Sarah that she really liked Will and thought he was the cutest. Will had no idea of this. Will on a Friday night approached Jannat he slowly walked towards her as he was as cool as a cucumber on the inside and the most nervousness he has ever felt. He opened his mouth and said “Jannat may I talk to you for a minute”. Jannat said “sure”. Will told her in a long winded why how much he LIKED HER, his words at first where hard for him to say but eventually he did. Jannat breathe taken at what she thought this could only happen her dream, came to life in front of her eyes. She said four simple words to Will “I LIKE YOU TOO”. There was then a breeze of awkward silence in the air. Will caught off guard speechless, out of all the possible scenario’s he played in his head, he never saw this coming. He then quickly said to her in a moments hast without thought “Will you be my girlfriend”. Jannat agreed and it was sealed.
How they fell for one another within the first week, they were constantly together, staring into each others eyes lost in space, no words necessary to communicate. Sarah the best friend begin to see her friend Jannat a lot less. This is the nature of love. The school year come to an end and so much had happened through the course of that time. Jannat had made more friends and joined a sports team, Will signed up for extra class and various activitys for extra credit, oh and Sarah still friends with Jannat, she had a crush on someone and also joined her best friend in taking up a sport.
Something happened that summer holiday. Jannat’s parents sat her down, they had not so exciting news to tell her.Her Dad said “Sweaty, I got an amazing job opportunity to work for an engineering company. We are going to have to move across state to Wisconsin in two weeks’ time”. Jannat’s heart dropped and she feel into a daze her mom tired explaining the reasons but she heard nothing of it, over taken by shock. Jannat had a lot of processing to do with this information and how she would go about it.
After three days of processing she came to a decision that she would have to break up with Will in order to for him to be able to move on without her in his life. A big decision left in the hands of a teenager. Later that day she picked up the phone and gave Will a call, you see she was not strong enough to do it in person. She told him that she loves him but it won’t work and anymore and “IT’S OVER” because she is moving far away and dropped the phone. And that was that, She never saw Will till the day she left, she messaged him a month later after she had moved.
Will on the other end of the phone call, was heartbroken at hearing that she was leaving Jackson Valley and when he had also heard what she said next his heart broke into more pieces, like a mosaic on the floor. She is not only leaving town but him too. The words “IT’S OVER” rang in his heard over and over again. Days passed whilst Will tried getting hold of his love with no success, than a few days later she had left”.
In Will’s home, his Mom began to worry about him. She was a single parent and she did not know that Will even had a girlfriend. To her eyes Will was still her little innocent boy who was single and haven’t had his first kiss yet. Will began to close off emotionally and a while later he barely ate. His mom had no clue what was going on with him, Will spoke less by the day. His mom in desperation sent her son to all the best help money could buy.Psychologists, doctors and other specialists to look and test her son.
After months of testing and probing the doctors and the specialist figured out what’s wrong with Will. He had a pain that they were unable to treat and that was a BROKEN HEART. Mom found out from who and why from Will’s friend who had come forward after she approached him. Mom had no way to turn to help her son. A week had passed and she had met someone whom she had invited into her home and into her heart and He was Jesus Christ. He preferred being called Jesus or J for short.
This man told Wills mom (Marry) that He is able to help him out. Marry jumped in joy as she was hearing this and she then was overjoyed. Jesus instructed Marry to take a passage of scripture from his word and go read it to your son and I will guide you what to read to him. Jesus gave her three passages to read from. And she read
“…sent Jesus to heal the broken-heated, proclaim freedom to the captives, and to open the prison of the bound”
She read some more
“… I have come to that you may have life and life in abundance.”
… being knitted together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of God, both Father and Christ.”
When she was done reading something magical happened to his hear that she could not, his broken heart was pulled back together. It was a new heart, better than the last. Will than invited the man who had fixed his heart like her mom had done. And after that day He had a greater love that resided in him one that will never ever leave him. A love that forever. And a kind of love that no one could ever in a million years separate him from
I wrote this short story because you know why. We could be going on life with an untreated heart issue that could have happened to you in your past or is happening to you. The heart is one of the most important organ in the human body, it is where all the issues of life come from. So if it’s infected or injured it’s a problem. Guys there is not all the ice-cream in the world you could eat to heal your heart. Maybe you have tried other ways and they have not worked for you. Give Jesus a try and let see if He can, if he says he can surely he can. He has been doing it for me every time I got to close to the flame meaning ladies and got burned.
“The longest piece I ever wrote
Hope it’s great.”
I have walls up, down
To my left and right
All around me.
I have learned to become an architect.
In my past, I’ve been wracked.
People had come to my little village.
The came and left a mess.
Before I had no walls.
Now I have built one.
Its range goes as far as you sight can see
Its walls are as tall as the sky.
Before people they would come and go.
Now no one can enter my village.
My land has been empty of visitors
I have put up walls
Because you broke my heart.
Because not just once but twice.
Not only you but others too.
People entered my little village
And destroyed it.
My heart was the village.
The walls built to protect my village.
The bricks I used to build, were made up of…
The great wall now surround me.
The wall made my love grow cold.
The village lights no longer shine.
My heart has become darkened.
A brilliant architect I was.
I build a wall around my heart
To protect my heart from hurt and pain.
The wall that I build became my destroyer.
No longer can I feel, love, trust, or live.
People are not all bad.
I will build a new wall.
Built from all that good,
LOVE, JOY HAPPINESS, TRUST & UNDERSTANDING
My wall will be strong and immovable.
It will guard my heart and soul.
From the invaders.
From my enemies.
From those who mean my village harm.
I’ve been hurt many times in my life, and what hurts us the most is the people closed to us. We have learned to put up walls around ourselves to make it hurt less and over time, we have become dull to the pain. Heartbreak is the worst when the ones we love leave or reject us. We should not close ourselves to people. People will never be perfect, they will always make mistakes like we do. Guard your heart but in the process don’t cut of people from our lives. Let’s forgive one another. I want to share this scriptures that will help us both get back on the right path.
Guarding your heart
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
Let him in your heart (Jesus words to us).
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy, I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
He will guide us.
But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own, he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
The following story is about a married husband and his wife, and three business men. This story talks about principles and assumptions that we as people have, build in to us when it comes to finances. And how finances is such a big part of our life’s. It can be a window which determines how the dreams and desires we want for ourselves turn out.
There once was a wealthy man named Ted, you can say he was so wealthy he did not know what he could do with all his wealth. Ted owned the worlds leading communication and technology company. He worked hard and enjoyed his work. He had a wife he had to take care off. Because of his work, he was seldomly be around, and he had to take ways to take care of his wife.
So Ted had an amazing idea he called for Three of his employees who worked in varies locations, and there names where Joseph, Marry and Sepho. Ted trusted his employees so much so that he gave them and monthly salary that showed that he valued them. Ted said to this three employees that ” out of the total salary I give you, you can do anything with this salary that your heart desires but just send my wife 10% of that income to my wife at home”.
Now at hearing Teds statement they where all happy and full of joy. Each of the employees earned a different salary. Joseph earned a large sum of $60 000, He had a great life with family and kids at home and everything was okay, he was a happy guy he loved his boss, he was also a very ambitious guy, he had great dreams he wants to still fulfill. Marry was a young women who got her dream job and she was still new to the company. She really admired her boss and honored him, despite being new too to work her boss paid here $40 000. Sepho was a young men he has been working for Ted for a while. He knew the ins and ours of the company he earned $10 000. He was very happy and set in his job he enjoyed it and found his work to be fulfilling.
Marry, Joseph and Sepho had there own bills the had to pay for every month. The mortgage, water and utility bill. And some of them had kids who where in university. And the list goes on. life is always demanding no matter how wealthy you are there is always something you have to pay for. Now as they all began to apply what the boss had said, not all of them followed his instruction.
Joseph earned $60 000 as the months went forward he only sent about 2 or sometimes 5% to his boss wife. He thought to himself why do I have to send money to my Boss wife she is obviously well off knowing how rich my boss is a cent from me wont make much of a difference. Joseph enjoyed the treasures he received and continued living life.
Marry earned $40 000 and she would send $4000 to her bosses wife, that was the whole 10 % and sometimes she would even send more because she was overjoy, that out of all that she got the boss said she have the remaining amount and do whatever she liked with it.
Sepho earned $10 000 and he had to send $1000 a month to the wife, Sepho thought I have so much I need to do with my salary that he told himself that he would pay the remaining money he did not send the following month, a month later the same thing happened and again and again the cycle continued. He would give 6% and other times 8% . It was still not 10% . Sepho felt bad about that.
Now one day months later there Boss Ted was having dinner with his wife(Christina) just enjoying one another’s company. The husband asked his wife “Have you been receiving the gifts I’ve been sending you”. Christina looked at her husband and reluctantly said ” yes I have”. The husband pushed the matter farther and he found out that not all the money he instructed his employees made it to his wife. Ted was devastated and was hurt by his employees whom he had great confidence and trust in.
Ted had to deal with this matter he called in this three employees,Joseph Marry and Sepho. The first thing he did was fire Joseph the reason he gave Joseph”out of all the money I have given you to leave a great life all that I asked was for 10% and you could not do that, you became prideful and to ambitious for your own good, Your assumption and your prejudice led to this, your fired!” Joseph left the office and was saddened with what happened.
Now next Ted called in little Marry, Ted gave her a big smile despite what had happened with Joseph. Ted was so pleased with Marry, because she had been so faithful with what she was given,and even gave more than what she was suppose to have given. Ted gave her a salary increase of $60 000 on that day. She would now earn $100 000. Marry was over joyed and would continue to give all the more from that day on.
The last meeting Ted had was with Sepho. He called Sepho into the office, Sepho was nervous at this time as he was the last to be called in. Ted said to Sepho that he knows that you have not been obedient to my instructions. Ted told him from today on you will earn $5000 a month. That was Teds way of punishing Sepho and teaching him that if you can’t be trusted with the small you won’t be trusted with much.
The True Identity of the story for the story to make sense:
The Business man is Jesus Christ.
The wife is the church
and Sepho, Marry and Joseph is ME & YOU
PART II will explain the story for those who may have missed it, For those of you who got it please share tour thoughts on the comments below?
Inspired by Pastor B Rams
10Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house. Test Me in this,” says the LORD of Hosts. “See if I will not open the floodgates of heaven and pour out for you blessing without measure. 11I will rebuke the devourera for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of your land, and the vine in your field will not fail to produce fruit,” says the LORD of Hosts.
When I read story of man of faith and all the obstacles they went through but never doubted God. It’s so inspiring and amazing . People like Joshua who went into war and God gave him what he promised. Joseph who was sold into slavery but he never wavered in his faith. Not once does it say God why have you done this to me, he turns and worship God through his situation. Through his faith in God, God provided for him in his worst and he prospered. David who defeated a loin and a bear having complete trust in God.
But in this day and age, we doubt and our faith is not strong the situation we face and the things we have seen affect us and may make us doubt. We may have the Holy Spirit who guides us all into truth but we would than say it was not him or such excuses. In times like this we need to press deeper and look at what the Word of God says and look at the examples that remind us of Gods faithfulness and promises.
Stories that were written, where written for especially me and you. To give us hope. To lift up our faith. To move from the impossible to the possible.
A while back I read to story of Joshua and that did something to me on the inside it showed me that despite my circumstances I don’t have to lose hope. Word give hope and reading a simple story can be life changing. Read a something that’s good for you and brings value to your life.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
John 1:1 NKJV
Vision is everything.Do you have your own vision? What are your goal and life aspirations? Does your capability or mindset to fulfill your vision limit you? What fuels your vision? Or should I say who fuels your vision? This are some of the important questions we need to and ourselves.
We need faith and trust in God, to get too the finish line. That in simply doing that, we are already done 90% of the work. Some of the dreams and disorders that we want may be from God and put deep in our hearts and we may think that your own vision you want apart from Him. We need to persevere through the trails and challenges that will come.
Dream big ! Dream to your hearts content, but remember that your action of today bring you one step closer to making your dream a reality. You may want to be a doctor, a wealthy business man or maybe an actor. Keep in mind that the present is your launching pad to your future. This is something that I learned today😀😊😀
What is your vision?
Where do you envision for yourself in the future, whether short term or long term?
I’m not the most poetic
Nor am I the best singer.
Not always the smartest.
I am always seen but never chosen.
The words that I speak fade.
Average I was Born
Average I was called
And Average I was expected
Life revealed my faults.
The things I was never great at.
The awards that I never got.
The dreams I let go.
That the way life in this world works,
So I thought !
The truth is.
Excellence I was born too.
Excellence I was called too.
And that which I was called too, I became.
Inspired by Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future
What is the thing everyone in his or her life has to go through?
There is no escaping it. Its aid to test your capacity as a person.
It strengthens your mind, body and soul, so I have been told.
This little thing is called Exams. Imagine you’re in a hall there before
Your eyes is a chair, a pen & paper on the table waiting for you,
As you sit down there is no turning back.
Reality then kicks in, that one piece of paper
Set before your eyes can make or break you.
At the first glance of the paper you realise,
I can’t do this on my own, so you resort to what many
Often do when our backs are against the wall and that is
Turn to God.
In that moment when it is just you, the paper and God
We tend to make a request “if only God you could do this for
Me I would do that for you” And some of us get that Yes.
But many of us get the Big NO, “the one who did not study”
As I flip through the pages of my life I have seen many times,
Exams have crushed many dreams.
But the One truth that remains about our little friend
Exam, it is a social contract designed to test men’s intellectual
Knowledge acquired for the betterment of all.
When I read story of man of faith and all the obstacles they went through but never doubted God. It’s so inspiring and amazing . People like Joshua who went into war and God gave him what he promised. Joseph who was soles into slavery but he never wavered in his faith. Not once does it say God why have you done this to me, but through his faith in God, God provided for him in his worst and he prospered. David who defeated a loin and a bear having complete trust in God.
But in this days, we doubt and our faith is not strong the situation that we see affect us and may make us doubt. We may have the Holy Spirit who tells us all truth but we would than say it was not him or such excuses. In times like this we need to press deeper and look at what the word says and look at the examples that we see in the Bible.
Stories that were written where written for especially me and you. To give us hope to left up our faith. To move from the impossible to the possible.
Today I read to story of Joshua and that did something to me on the inside it showed me that despite my circumstances I don’t have to lose hope. Word give hope and reading a simple story can be life changing.
