His faithfulness is sure
And His loving kindness endures.
His goodness is without measure
And His nearness assures.
His loveliness is beyond compare
And His truthfulness reassures.
His greatness no one can fathom
And His brightness radiates His kingdom.
21 This I recall to my mind, Therefore I have hope.
22 Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.
24 ” The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, ” Therefore I hope in Him!” Lam3:21-24
FEED YOUR FAITH
Feed your faith,
Not your fear.
Walk by faith,
Not by sight.
Go from the milk
Eat God’s word,
As your food.
Say what God says.
Pray what God says.
Do what God says.
Believe what God says.
Walk in the Word.
Walk in the spirit.
War with the Word.
Win with the Word.
Grow in grace.
Flow in grace.
Glow in grace.
And win the Race.
The darker the night, the Brighter we Shine(2)
We play by different rules.
We are God’s righteousness.
In our lives God’s Kingdom rules.
We live in His brightness.
Difficulties are our opportunity to shine
Because the Greater One lives in us.
We are Entwined and rooted in the Vine
If God be for us, who can be against us?
We are like Joseph, the darker the night
The brighter and brighter he shone
Sold as a slave, he continued to be light
He walked with God and glorified Him.
Served his master well; had no bitterness.
He used the darkness to shine brighter.
His lemon he used for sweetness.
So God promoted him, made him prosper.
He Made a Way like He said
The handwriting was on the wall. The die was cast. Industrial action was sure. Southern railway announced, “There will be severe delays and cancellations tomorrow and the day after.” And to give us a taste, we were asked to vacate the train for some unknown reason because of technical problems. The next train was expected about thirty minutes from then. Many passengers were fuming, especially when they thought of what would happen the following day.
I was calm, more so when I heard a word from within me – “No need to worry, worry is the interest you pay for trouble.” It was comforting and sufficient. And I began to write a poem on that thought:
No Need to Worry (That was how this poem was born)
I decided to start my travel a few minutes earlier than usual. And as I got to the train station, a train was waiting. It was one of the fasted journeys I have had. Moreover, on arrival at my destination, I met a young lady who was going to the same place I was going and she offered me a lift. So I got a ‘chauffer service’ in addition.
Similarly the next day I was able to get in earlier than before and my journey back was quicker than before as they laid on an earlier train and there was no need for me to wait for about thirty minutes to get a train.
The strike worked well for me apparently. God is so good.
There was no need to worry. He made a way, just like He had said.
No Need To worry
Else you’ll be sorry
And invite sorrow.
Know, God will take care
Of all your affairs
Just because He cares
And is always there.
Will always be there
Lion of Judah
Will always be fair.
He’ll take care of you
Any time or day
He will be with you
And you will not stray.
So be confident
In His faithfulness.
Be not diffident.
Refuse to digress.
Maintain your focus
Refuse to despair
Depend on Jesus
Every hurdle clear
. Refuse anxiety
Be cool and be calm
In spite of the storm.
God will fight for you
And you’ll hold your peace
He’s faithful and true
So let your doubt cease.
Lord Is ever in control
And He’ll fulfil His Word
To satisfy your soul.
6 Be anxious for nothing , but in everything by prayer and supplication , with thanksgiving , let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God , which surpasses all understanding , will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Phil4:6-7
28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field , how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field , which today is , and tomorrow is thrown into the oven , will He not much more clothe you , O you of little faith? 31 “Therefore do not worry , saying , ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness , and all these things shall be added to you.
