No one is Good….

No one is Good

God is good
but you are not.
No one is good
but God.
Everything is within God
and He places it in you
to do.
He shares
what was always His to share
and your efforts cannot compare.
To be good
you need to do what is right
but right is greater than good.
You labour 
but labour in vain
until you see the possibilities
that looked imposible.
Though in the net-
a web of deceit-
With Him,
you shall be plucked from your obscurity
into the reality
of your conspicuity.
But know thyself
enough to know
your good desires
came from a greater Source
that called to you
then came to you
then sent you
so He can use you.

Be Yeast

Be Yeast

Be yeast
make things grow
expand and reach
all the dreams just out of reach.
Be yeast
unlimited
unrestrained
by the lifeless nature
of a dough life.
Be yeast
destined
to go everywhere
and grow whereever laid
to conquer.
Be yeast
and feast on the challenge
of beating the impossible odds.
Be yeast
and emerge
small and alert
into your mighty self
to make your mark on the earth.

Unforgiveness

Unforgiveness

Unforgiveness is a poison
it eats at the soul.
When it is finsihed with it
like acid it corrodes the spirit
it tears at your peace
and leaves its victim destitute.
It takes away your joy
and it will destroy
your choice to truly live.
It will lead you to demand
demean
disarm
until you are demented.
With it
you can only pick
the unsavoury fruit of bitterness
that drops to the ground and become
an untamed entangled web of a deathly forest.

You Decide

You Decide

You decide where the tide flows
what goes
and what's really for show.
You decide that you are not here
to scratch and scrape
just to be someone's slave
except God's.
You decide 
faith or fear
one must be killed
with the spear of defiance
and a lot of reliance 
on the One who is the I Am.
You decide
your voice
and the choice to do what's right
not what is good.
You decide 
life is worth death
to the theft of your joy
and the you they can never conceive.

A Word on Discouragement

Discouragement is dissatisfaction with the past, distaste for the present, and distrust of the future. It is ingratitudefor the blessings of yesterday, indifference to the opportuinities of todayand insecurity regarding strength for tomorrow. It is unawareness of the presence of beauty, unconcern for the needs of our fellowman, and unbelief in the promises of old. it is impatience with time, immaturity of thoughts, and impoliteness to God

– William A Ward

Friend Or Foe?

Friend Or Foe?

Taught in school
the golden rule can make fools
slaves to foolish truths
guided in chains from medusa's head
we are told
let yourselves be led
so someday you can lead the brain-
dead
whose souls have been sucked
in to vault of progress.
But we were never told
that someday too
we would find a tomb
just for us
like those we once led.
Friend or foe 
who goes there
we will never know
because we only see what we were told
and are blinded by the truth.
Shall we call for the Light
even at this late night,
one more time,
and pray for us
it will come through?
