The lovesick bride.

Are you sleeping my darling?
Or are thoughts of me lingering?
I pray for you daily,
And wait patiently for you yearly,
I see you with closed eyes,
These things I make known to Abba with cries.

image

Stand tall newlyweds.

Twenty years of waiting for you,
But you are worth each second of the wait,
Make haste and get your woman of virtue,
Though she waits for you, she does not faint,
With bowed knees she prays,
Petitioning to Him who holds her days,
But yet on her is a calm,
Unwavering she knows her groom will come.

She has kept her gown unblemished,
At the alter she stands in earnest anticipation,
With closed eyes she speaks to Him who cried, “It is finished!”
But the masses are clueless as they stand and gaze at the celebration.

Unblemished gown.

One in spirit, one in body,
Before God they have been joined,
Who dares to separate? – Nobody!
People marvel because they have gained,
They are more than lovers, more than spouse,
Because through them lives shall be changed,
On them the Lord shall build His house,
Together they shall see the songs of revival birthed.

Stand tall newly weds,
Listen as the voice of doubt fades,
You are divine and admired by others,
Your love is sweeter than honey and brighter than all colors.

With these few words I say to you husband,
I love you so much, man who put a ring on my hand,
I love you so much, man who embellished my heart,
You are real, true and not a feeling in my gut,
Keep searching, keep looking, because another is your pavior,
I’m right here hidden at the feet of my Savior.

Soon enough you’ll behold me,
I too wait for thee,
I hope in God because in Him I live, I move, I breath and have my entire being,
And one day soon enough, together we shall sing and make merry to our King.

One day, together, we shall sing and make merry to our King.

Don’t You care Lord?

**DON’T YOU CARE LORD?**

Don’t You care Lord?
They’ve all left me Lord!
I run to Him with tears streaming down my cheeks,
I had carried this burden way too long..not days but weeks!

I’m all alone sweet Jesus,
Its just me but You said it should be us,
Don’t You care Lord?

Don’t You?

Twice He called me by name,
And this is why I will never be the same,
With such loving words He calmed me,
Martha, Martha, He said with such a burning love for me,

Why so downcast?
You are not an outcast,
Why so worried child?
You’ve been found,

I do care my love,
I do care, O you whose eyes are like a dove,
You are the apple of my eye,
Hush now, don’t cry!

Only one thing is needed my beautiful,
Choose that which is wonderful,
Find the treasure hidden at my feet,
Come now and sit,

I do care child,
I left the 99 till you were found!
Don’t worry,
Cast-don’t carry,

Martha, my darling Martha…I love you my darling!

Seven Days with the lord.

Together, forever, always!

I’m in love I say,
I’m head over heels…thinking of Him all day,
Yet I wouldn’t have it any other way,
I loved Him yesterday,
And I love Him more today,
At His feet I’ll rest someday,

I’m in love I shout,
He is all I think about,
Its stronger than doubt,
Its higher than a mount,
I can’t get out,
Its not religion but yet I’m devout,

I see Him in everything
He has given me something,
Its that which I desired.. You know that thing?
Only He satisfies – He is the Onething,
Without Him I have nothing,
He is to me God, lover, friend and King,

I don’t remember a moment when He has been absent,
I hear His blood speaking, its crying out and saying she’s innocent,
I don’t want to go to that place where my Lover is not present,
I can smell His sweet fragrance, I know His scent,
He is taking me higher and higher, its a beautiful ascent,
Our love isn’t something new, we are lovers of ancient,

Take me to that place,
Make me gaze at the beauty of  Your face,
Hold me in Your sweet embrace,
Flood me with Your grace,
Drown me in Your tender caress,
And I shall never stress,

You have won my heart, and now it beats only for You,
Together, forever, always♥

But mommy you chose this man.
Fixed Gaze.

Fixed gaze.

I knew I was a rose but somehow God had me grow with the weeds,
         Yet I bloomed!
I knew I was smart even when nobody believed me,
          So I excelled!
I knew I was a gem but nonetheless I was handled like a pebble,
            Yet I sparkled!
I knew I was loud even when they kept hushing my voice,
             So I screamed!
I knew I could walk despite tripping over and over ,
            Yet I ran!
I knew I was an eagle though I was raised among the chickens,
             So I flew!
I knew I was a lion even when they thought they had me tamed,
             Yet I roared!
I knew I was a seed although they buried me,
              So I sprang up!
I knew I was light but they placed me in the darkness,
             Yet I lit up!
I knew I was a fire although they thought they quenched me,
              So I burnt them!
I bloomed, I excelled, I sparkled, I screamed, I ran, I flew, I roared, I sprang up, I lit up, I burnt them!!!

It wasn’t because I was smart, tact, swift, modest, wise, lucky, strong, brave, wild, adventurous, able..
I did all that because despite my misconceptions or your belittlement..
I kept a fixed gaze on the man Christ Jesus!

Seven days with the Lord.

Day one: My  first day with the Lord. I was a mess, so broken, so hurt, so fractured, so ruptured and deeply exhausted.
I needed a friend. I needed to feel loved by a companion who didn’t judge me.
The Lord was my shoulder to cry on. He hugged and kissed me. He vowed eternal love by His name. He said He would never leave nor forsake me.

I knew He meant it. He never lies. So I believed Him and started walking with Him.

Day two: I was learning to walk but still crawling. My knees were still weak. The past still bothered me. I wasn’t very confident in the Lord.
I read my first bible verse, “I love the Lord for He heard my voice, He heard my cry for mercy”.
Upon reading those words, I felt my knees gain strength. I felt a calm in my spirit. I could feel His presence all around me. Covering me like a blanket. He was lavishing me with His love and I soaked it in like a sponge.
That day, I walked. I walked with the Lord. He is my shield and fortress. My strong tower and ever present help.

No one could convince me otherwise, He was with me and I knew it.

Day three: I stumbled upon a stone and fell. But the Lord picked me up with his righteous right hand.
I fell yet again, but once more He raised me up. He looked at me and smiled.
A third, fourth and fifth time I still stumbled and on my knees I fell.
I thought He would rebuke me but He held me up and I stood firm.
I got angry at myself for falling short of His glory over and over again. But He looked at me and restored my soul with His loving gaze.
That evening I heard Him whisper, “It is well”.

I learnt that though I fall, with the Lord by my side. He’ll lift me up.

Day four: I started to notice that my inner circle had changed. The friends I thought would last forever were no more.
Somehow the Lord had separated me from them. I wanted to hold on. But each time I tried, it was like swallowing a bitter pill.
I knew why they left me. My new walk with God was too much for them to comprehend.
But the Lord was already a friend and ever present help. Though it hurt, I knew it was well.
Suddenly I stopped caring what man thought of me. I had Almighty God’s approval and it was enough. Such a great feeling. I felt my spirit leap to joy.

I swallowed that bitter pill with a smile whilst meditating on my verse and looking to my God.

Day five: Where are You Lord? Where are You friend? Where are You lover? Where are You King? Where are You companion? I can’t hear Your voice Daddy.
I searched for the Lord but could not find Him. I looked for my lover but He was no where.
The Lord was silent but I kept my joy. My heart was broken but I had my verse to keep me going.
I could not hear His voice but I had His word to keep me safe. I was tempted to despair but I couldn’t. I felt struck down but not destroyed.
It was strange but I knew He was there even when He seemed silent. I trusted Him with every fibre of my being.
I consciously decided to hold on!! I knelt down and prayed. I prayed to feel His heartbeat. I yearned and longed for my Lord.

He may seem far away. But He is ever present. Hold on!

Day six:  I prayed Lord, but You never answered. I trusted but You didn’t come through.
This hurts Lord. How will I survive this? Give me strength Lord.
I’m having a hard time understanding this, but You gave me Your word. I will trust You, even when it hurts. Even when its hard, even when it all just falls apart. I will run to You, cause I know that You are; lover of my soul and healer of my scars.
It was a rough day filled with disappointments and heartbreaks. I felt so much pain and rejection. But I trusted the Lord. I had surrendered my all to Him and was never going to turn back.
I cried myself to sleep and prayed for a better tomorrow. But the Lord directed His loving song at night.

You steady my heart. I will run to You even when all I see is black and pain.

Day seven:   His mercy was new every morning. His love endures forever. I woke up and I knew it wasn’t an ordinary day.
Thank you Lord!!!! Thank you for not answering all my prayers. This news is better. Thank you for cutting off my bad relationships, this would have never happened if I was still around them.
Thank you for writing an amazing love letter, thank you for the bible.
Today I just want to praise You and worship You. You are truly great in word and deed.
Your name be forever praised. I forgot all about the pains of yesterday. Just one word from my lover healed all my sorrows. When God delays,it is because He loves us. When He denies, it is because He has something better.

The Lord is true to His word. He is good just because He is good.

But for Him.

                                                     I press on
                                                     I hold on
                                                    I smile still
                                        But its not for the thrill

                                                   I work harder
                                               I sing a bit louder
                                          Unlike you I stand taller
                                But its not because I’m stronger

                                                   I keep writing
                                        On my knees I fall praying
                          I rise up after facing the disappointing
                                             I may look daunting

                                                You think I’m brave
                                You  are persuaded that I never rave
                                              You want me to save
                                                But I’m just a knave

                                                      You ask if I cry
                                        You want to know if I ask why
                     Because you don’t know that I quit even before a try
                                                   But yet you see me fly

                                             So what makes me special?
                                             What’s the sass in my facial?
                         Why act like an emerald when I’m just a pebble?
                           But for that ONE person I would be like several

                                          His love imparts on me worth
                                           In His presence there is mirth
                                  So yes I’ll dance like heaven is on earth
                                       But for Him I would stink of death!!

image

It would all collapse but for Him.

                                          It would all collapse but for Him
                                      Night would last forever but for Him
                                           My life would be empty and dim
But for Him
                                                      And it’s why I live for
                                                                    HIM!!!

Grace

Ashamed, broken, bruised and defiled,
I was headed for destruction with no way out,
Deep down I hated this, I knew it wasn’t right,
But I was trapped, I had been chained way too long to even fight,

image

Pain

It was normal, it was me, this was reality,
I was covered in so much filth, so far from beauty,
At first I would cry but not anymore,
I remember feeling hurt, but that was before,

Trading my body and soul for cheap change,
Sex for money-  a lousy exchange,
I sought after refuge but found none,
I had so many friends but yet so alone,

Yuck!! Who could stand the sight of me?

They were all the same-  the teacher, the doctor, the lawyer, the engineer and even the pastor,
Evil and cruel men and my body was all they were after!!
All men were bad, this wasn’t a biased statement but my fact!
I knew all their ways and could see beyond their good act,

I hated them all!!

My dad who raped me!
My cousin who molested me!
My boyfriend who beat me!
My uncles who defiled me!

image

Pain

And after my pastor impregnated me… That was the final blow into my downward spiral,
I despised my boss who sold me to online sites and gained his income when I went viral,
They all looked at me and only saw their object of pleasure,
I was not human, not beautiful, not a soul but simply a toy for their leisure,

Yuck!! Who could stand the sight of me?

So I gave up on fighting and let them do as they pleased,
Eventually my pride reduced while my shame increased,
I began to enjoy and love the way they treated me,
I looked forward to the times they abused me,

It felt good, it felt right, I was addicted to the pain,
It was my only counsel to my life of vain,
It meant I was human , intended and not mere coincidence,
The pain was my identity and evidence to my existence,

Yuck!! Who could stand the sight of me?

image

“I am always with you, ” I heard Him whisper,
The five words that touched this stripper,
It was 4:30 in the morning on a Friday,
It was beautiful, such a blessed day,

After nearly dying from the beatings of an abusive client,
The voices in my head were hushed and so was that evil giant,
Ashamed, broken, bruised and defiled,
I met the ONE man who looked at me and smiled,
With those five words He changed my life,
They pierced my heart like a knife,

image

Pain

Amazing grace how sweet the sound,
I was lost but now I’m found,
He saved a wretch like me,
Was blind but now I see,
Grace-  undeserved, unmerited, unearned favor,
Paid for by the blood that washes forever,
LOVE visited and stayed at my home,
LOVE came and calmed my storm,

Sinner for Son..a divine exchange.

image

I love the Lord! Im addicted!
