I am brunette
I am beautiful yet gorgeous.
And I am always on point.
Tall long legs,
Evenly toned skin.
Every day I face the mirror
It’s reflects truth of
How I look?
It tells me what works,
And what doesn’t
Its opinion is non bias.
10 min in day.
It judges my look.
And hands me the final vote.
When I leave Mirrors reflection
I am own my own.
Unable to view self (me).
I reflect back on what mirror showed me earlier.
I don’t forget my image,
I took a snap shot and
Stored into my memory.
Memories remind me of my beauty.
Mirror tells truth.
Except the hearts reflection.
And how fare the heart?
Been thinking on What James said in James 1:24-26. We as people use mirrors every single day from brushing our teeth to calming our hair and for the ladies who use the mirror to do makeup. After all is done with we leave the mirror knowing that we look okay. You definitely won’t forget how you look. Like the way we look at ourselves in the morning we should look at it like the Bible, not just seeing it or browsing through it but be doers of what it says.
22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.
I love women and the role the play in society. I love the strength and the unconditional love they have to overcome trials and obstacles, which I have seen from my own mom and the friends I have around me. Like people MJ, Dineo, Matevhu, Tshili and others. Women should be appreciated and valued more. I appreciate you guys, lots of love.
Food, Food, Food.
Food is so delicious.
My mouth becomes watery.
I drool at the sight of food.
I know all kinds of food.
Food that taste good
Food that taste amazing
And the food that taste terrible.
Oh Food, Food, Food.
It comes in all shapes and sizes.
It lifts you up when you’re down.
It comforts you when you’re alone.
But we have so much to choose from.
Do I go with chocolate or ice- cream?
Steak or ribs?
Chicken or beef stew?
Vegetables or fruits?
Pap or rice?
We all have favourites.
A favourite that!
A favourite person!
Favouritism is all and well.
Except people favour.
Favour discriminates people.
Favour shows prejudice.
Having favourites made me a judge.
People put on the stand.
Choice put in my hands
Who I like and who I don’t.
My choice has consequences.
Whom shall I choose?
The answer is neither!
This was inspired by the book of James in the 2nd chapter, where Paul speaks of favouritism. He says that we as Christians should not show favouritism to anyone be it the rich or the poor. A comparison of this would be between, high politician and an everyday working class person. To bring it down to our levels in today’s world, we all have our favourite people. And we would say “this or that person is my favourite person” to others. I know I have. I’m guilty as charged. And it’s okay to have close friends or even best friends but we should be objective when it comes to making decisions. Even if it means choosing between the side of your best friend and someone you barely know. Favouritism in the church of Christ can cause division. Many people have been hurt in their families by the statements that parents make when they say “this is my favourite child” in a family which has more than one child. We don’t want that. Let’s leave the Judge which is Christ to judge not us, because we are definitely not qualified.
Give it a read 😊
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
I was never be the one to be patient
I hate long queues that eat my time
Like I got nothing better to do.
It’s long been said be patient,
I hope I have one bone of patience
somewhere in my whole body.
In my wait I will imagine myself
In the comfort of my home relaxing.
On the other hand who ever dead
Of being patient? No one. I guess being
patience is just a part of life. We have all been there
and not always liked it unless you disagree.
If maybe there could be an award or prices given out for being patient.
The wait would so be worth it. Hopefully patience will one day very soon, shape my character and make be a more patient person. It sure would solve a lot more masses that I normally would have caused.
We all need to vent to blow off some steam. Life is not always easy and is full of complication, challenges and problems that we all have to face everyday.
A good friend of mine one said to me “Kindness it does not always mean when I say something to you, I want advice or the works but just to get something of my chest”. Than it hit me we all need that be it writing on a blank page your deepest raw emotions or be it painting art work that depicts your truest self .
For many of us we have our friends. Well that what there are there for right. But things never turn out the way you want , if we can get them to keep quite a bit more and listen or agree with what you say at that time no matter how wrong you where.
If you keep something long enough on the inside it will eventually explode and you would not want that happening in the wrong place. So when you feel the kettle is reaching boiling point. It about time to find that person to vent too, if that fails pic up a pen and just write or screaming could work for you too. You never know.
How do you vent ?
You may know his name.
His body was brutalized and left for dead.
His hand were nailed on the cross.
His feet bind together and nailed.
The anguish he felt as his flesh
Was torn apart from his body.
He paid the highest price, of all.
For only He could satisfy the law.
The law stood against God
It was met for good and for
The betterment of all.
But it to imprison us.
To death and sin, for we could
Not pay the price it demand.
For we fall short.
Never seeming able to do enough
After the cross He rose
Back to life by His Spirit
He told me that He also gave
You this Spirit, whom broke
the hold of death.
Liberated and set free and set apart
My flesh a living sacrifice
My spirit revived within
Death no longer reigns in me.
Only Peace and life.

There are days where I spent my days with Lazy.
He is always there asking to spend time with me.
Its hard to resist his word of relaxation and
Hours turn into days each time i’m with him.
After a while I snap out of it,
I realized time went over my heard
like I was counting sheep as slept
I came to realize that my friend Laziness
was not a true friend but a liar.
When reality struck, he was nowhere to be found.
I had to do my assignments, projects all the work alone.
Alone and with little too no time to spare.
I told myself that in my tomorrow,
I will make a decision.
When my friend Mr Laziness
comes for a visit .
We will find out then.
Will I invite him in or
will I ask him to turn back.
The book of the wise Proverbs, states in 10:4
“Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth.”
[Student life, or having a job and family can be overwhelming at times and there are days you may feel or drop everything to do nothing all day, the solution is to manage time well to avoid being overwhelmed. It’s good to rest but don’t be lazy]
Who am I? Am I what I do? Am I who people say I am? Or Am I who my family say I Am?16 years old, lost and confused. Waves swept me from my feet into the ocean. Tossed back and forth by the waves and wind.
Lost at sea, in the middle of nowhere, people pulling me in all direction. Many voices called my Name through the storm, so I swam in circles going nowhere. Putting on the Identities which people gave me but none of them fit or was just right.
I finally stopped swimming, tired and hopeless I was. Every night I closed my eyes hopeless, empty and worn out. Months passed than years I was drowning sinking under the weight of life. Into the water I went slowly. But before I was under I saw something.
There was a man who came to me in the ocean. He walked on the water, His voice was like a roaring lion, He calmed the hash storm I was in with a word, He then pulled me out of the water, saving my life.
The man took my hand and called me son. His Love and warmth was all around me, He guided me to safety. In Him I found myself, my identity. Which is child of God, friend of God and beloved one of God.
In the waves of life I was lost, pulled in all direction by everyone, but one voice was louder, one person came looking. My father came down and found me, in the mist of my worst point, saved and adopted into His family. No greater Love is there then this.
1 John 3:1
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God…
13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
