ALways You

Always You

You were always you
even when you wore other faces
not of you.
Even when you were confused
even when you were used
and abused
you were always you.
Even if you never knew
from time to time
especially because you were bruised
blacked and blued
until you lacked insight
But you
You were always within God's sight
and if you just hold on
He will gaurd the you He made
with all His might

Nothing+God

Nothing+God

Nothing plus God
equals everything.
A difficult equation
to understand
for many of us
for His ways are not ours.

But take for a minute 
all those who started that way -
from David the Shepherd boy
dirty and unattractive
too puny
to grow into himself,
a mighty warrior King.
What about Moses?
was living in hell
because he doubted himself
yet God held him up
with a staff that could tell
of how great God is.
To Joseph the dreamer
who dreamed up great dreams
until they were real.

They all had their day
and are still remembered till today.

Let's go deeper still -
this world that we live in
was created from dust
brought into something.
From many a failures
God took us from our jaliors
and gave us a saviour.

They and we
grew into greatness.
God had to take them and us from nothing
Be in the equation-
and trust me with faith
the same destiny awaits us.

The Danger of Forgetting.

Let all that I am praise the LORD;  may I never forget the good things he does for me.

Ps 103: 02

Sometimes we get so busy with live that we forget God.

We become so in love with the many things we have (titles, material possessions, friends, name and reputation), that we forget from whom it all comes.

We get so busy that we forget to meditate on the word of God, while we strive every second of the day to be the best that we can be – without God.

Yes we have all at one point or another forgotten that we have limited power compared to a greater force that enables us to reach the heights we have achieved.

When we think we can solve our own problems, we say to God we don’t need Him and He in turn leaves us to solve the mess we create. We do this because we forget God.

When we worry and fret about the future, it is because we have forgotten that we serve a Mighty God. One who needs no testing because the greatness of God is beyond our understanding.
