God

Made for Eternity

In a recent Bible study with the youth of my church, we were discussing Romans 12:2 where Paul writes not to “conform to this world”. I explained to them that our lives here are simply a pit stop on the way to eternity. It is what we do here though, that affects our eternity. While we can’t physically see it yet, we have faith that God is preparing something far better than anything this world has to offer. We simply have to believe and follow Him. After all, we’re created for eternity and that’s where He’s leading us to.


Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. (Ecclesiastes 3:11 NLT)

Halellujah Night

It was a hallelujah night

The darkness could not resist

It was a hallelujah night

Even the darkest of fears had to desist

It was a hallelujah night

And evil was simply dismissed

It was a hallelujah night

All warrior angels were called to enlist

It was a hallelujah night

And hell’s plans would cease to exist

Because it was a hallelujah night.

Stumbling and Stepping Stones

Sometimes we encounter people who seem to have made it their life’s mission to make us fail and fall. It’s frustrating and we question their purpose in our lives. I have often wondered WHY? Yet when I read the story of Joseph, I was able to understand that even those stumbling stones have a reason for being there. Joseph’s brothers wanted to get rid of him and instead sent him on his way to becoming second in command. What if God allowed the stumbling stones in our lives to ultimately become the stepping stones that take us to the next level?


But don’t be upset, and don’t be angry with yourselves for selling me to this place. It was God who sent me here ahead of you to preserve your lives. (Genesis 45:5 NLT)

Awesome God

You leave me in awe

The things that you’ve done for me

How you gave your life for me

When you went before me

And left my debt prepaid for me

So I give you my all

It’s not enough but more than enough for you

I will walk in your steps and live for you

As I stand here before you

Sealed with your spirit, postmarked by your love, I’ve no words for you

Yes, you leave me in awe

But some part of me always knew though

That my God is awesome

Don’t Worry

To whom this may concern. To you who are worried or anxious about something. Allow me to tell you that I know the feeling. I too understand being worried or anxious to the point of losing my breath becoming physically ill. As a believer, I’ve come to learn that there is nothing impossible for God, and yet I try to “help” Him by taking tasks from His hands and worrying about them. I’ve also learned that, while my anxiety can’t be simply switched off, there are things I can do to ease it. When I feel the tingling of worry and anxiety creeping up on me, rather than give in I have a talk with my Heavenly Father and try to remind myself to just chill He’s got my back.


Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. (Philippians 4:6 NLT)

#Done

All done
Hair and makeup undone
But I’m done
Nope, this isn’t a dry run
Believe it or not, I’m all done
Washing machine after the clothes has spun
I’m done
Shooting out lines like a water gun
Ladies and gents I’m done
Perfectly imperfect little someone
I’m done
Carefully knitted together by The One
Who’s only just begun
Yet simultaneously all done
I’m not taking suggestions from anyone
And this is no competition
Made by God, loved by The Son
Don’t try to change me, I’m all done

Beneath the Surface

I don’t know about you, but I’ve found myself in a throw-in-the-towel, hang-up-the-boxing-gloves, salvation-is-independent kind of mood. There have been days when I’ve wondered: Is this even worth it?

Have you seen an iceberg? Notice how, when we observe what’s above water as compared to beneath the surface, there’s a lot we don’t immediately see? Well, God works in a similar style. We only get a glimpse of the surface, but inside He is at work. So be encouraged today, don’t give up. God is doing something on a deeper level, and like the seeds that were sewn in good soil, in time we will see them sprout and grow.


For God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for him and how you have shown your love to him by caring for other believers, as you still do. Our great desire is that you will keep on loving others as long as life lasts, in order to make certain that what you hope for will come true. Then you will not become spiritually dull and indifferent. Instead, you will follow the example of those who are going to inherit God’s promises because of their faith and endurance.  (Hebrews 6:10-12 NLT)
