Spokenword Sunday – LOVE video

Video version of the love poem, let me know your responses guys x

Love is often misrepresented in our failed and disruptive relationships, there is only one true and consistent representation of love and this is revealed to us in God, in his sacrificing of his only Son in order to pay the debt for our sins – John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. – you may have heard this verse a few times, or read it just as often. But we should ask God to enlighten our spirits and teach our hearts just how great, powerful and enduring His love for us is,  and ask God to teach us how to truly love, that we may not try to receive it or demand it from men/boys and women/girls who are unable to offer God’s perfect love. Amen in Jesus name

May God bless you and meet you at your point of need in Jesus name amen. x

Spokenword Sunday – Love

he-loves-me-he-loves-me-not-1He loves me

He loves me not

He loves me

He loves me not so much that he can say those three words

But I know he must

Cah, the way he looks at me, could be mistaken for lust

But I see the truth in those lies and I hope one day to find the prize hidden in all these disappointments

I know I can make a difference,

I see so much potential in you, though you have no prospects

You talk down to me and I’m the one tryna bring you up to my level,

In my fairy-tale you’re the handsome, teary eyed guy in the suit that lifts my veil.

Actually, I’m pretty sure that I’m too good for you, and maybe I’ll just move on to your friend or two,

But I’m afraid things won’t work out with them,

And I might get paranoid and start thinking I was right when I said Its me and not you.

If you like it then you should have put a ring on it,but I’m dangerously in love and I’ll countdown till your love’s on top so we can be together till the end of time, don’t be the best thing I never had.

Seems like Beyonce’s just as confused as I am.

But God is not a God of confusion, so who is really the source of this vision?

The one I could have made up, I was so desperate for love.

The thirst has created a bunch of zombie wifeys

Weaved out, high heeled to breaking point and tired of celebrating valentines but no anniversaries

Saying no thank you to the bread of life and never-ending well of water spring

Yes please, I’ll have the heartbreak, abuse and unwanted pregnancies.

Sad but true that some people choose to play this game,

Single and ready to mingle, it’s a shame…

But he’ll change, I know he’ll change.

No surprise when things stay the same…

You should know that you’re worth more than rubies

A product of the creator’s design

You deserve more than empty apologies.

I pray as women of God, we seek the patience to wait,

Like Rebekah, Rachel , Hannah, Ruth

Whether He loves me or he love me not

I know one truth

God loves me more

Spokenword Sunday – Pleasing God

Psalm 1:1-6

I’m pleased because of how your 1st class degree in biomedical science,

Hasn’t stopped you from being an usher,

How you raise you head high, directing others to the altar.

I’m pleased because of how you fear no evil in my name,

And rebuke demons through my grace.

You don’t shudder, when darkness lurks,

A child of light, my Father does unimaginable works.

I’m pleased by your ability to sit quietly,

Even when you think that you are right,

Better still when you know you are.

I’m pleased with you, for the persecution you took for my name’s sake

The odd stares and the empty sympathising from the lost,

The shaking of heads, as they carry sins weight.

I’m pleased because you turned down that six figure salary,

Because they asked you to dishonour the Sabbath,

You said “everyday is holy, but you should understand, Sunday is like Father’s day to me”.

I’m please because you’re slow to speak and slow to anger,

I’m pleased when you say “na thanks”, to the most sort after invitation to the party of the year.

I’m pleased because you didn’t approach Brother A,

Despite your craving emotions,

Even if he did smile at you a little longer than the others.

I’m pleased because you respected Sister B, all the way to the altar,

Abstaining and patiently waiting, without falter.

I’m pleased with your boldness among those who believe the least,

You boast about your God and shame the beast.

And your humility among those who believe the most,

Humble servant of Lord of hosts.

I’m pleased with you for giving up your favourite tv show,

Fasting, and putting your body under control

I’m pleased by how little the pride you acquire, and how great your gratefulness for my grace and sacrifice,

That I admire.

And when my father sends me, on the day of judgement,

I will know you, and I will speak merrily of you,

Because I’m so pleased with you.

Amen

Spokenword Sunday – YOLO

Drake yolo

You Only Live Once

How many people here have heard that saying?

Who doesn’t know what the acronym YOLO represents?

You only live once

You only live once

It came to me as I was watching some inspiring Christian poetry

I realised how the devil really works

How he can take a strong warning and distort it into the end of every joke

The excuse for every foolish and selfish act

Who benefits from your yolo-ing?

Don’t you know that there is only one beneficiary to sin, the devil,

He gains another soul in hell

Do we even listen to the things that come out of our mouths?

Christ told us, this is what defiles a man

You only live once

Do you understand what that means,

That means that if the floor were to separate and swallow us all,

That’s it

No clubbing tomorrow,

You won’t have the opportunity to complain about your weight

Or the fact that your new iphone five, causing suicides in China,

Selling at prices enough to feed villages in Africa,

Stopped working

You won’t be able to worry about who is or is not whatsapping you

where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth

And I guess I’m a hypocrite because my phone cost me over £400

How ironic that I should struggle to pay my rent some months and carry the value  in the palm of my hand.

You only live once,

Try weed, try drugs, have sex with him and her too

Do whatever you want to do because you only live once

Tattoo only God can judge me

Just to show how daring and creative you can be

But only God can judge you and don’t worry he will

You’ll have the opportunity to explain to him why you felt so strongly about judgement that you needed to permanently mark it on the walls of his temple

Cause our body is his temple

YOLO

We don’t even think about what those four letters mean

If you’re given the grace to understand then please understand

Yes its true this body only survives one life time, but your spirit is eternal

It would have been better for some if they hadn’t been born because by being born you’ve enter a contract forever

You’ll always be in existence

I’m not saying yolo-ing is wrong, I yolo often

Saying things I don’t want to say because of human fear, that I know I have to say because of God because I’ll only live on this earth once

I won’t have the opportunity to come back and do things the right way having learned of hell

The guy you spent half of your teenage years chasing, the image you almost killed yourself for,

They won’t matter once death comes

Is it me or does it seem sensible to utilize this life on earth, that we only have to live once, to do things that will save us from burning for eternity

In fact I am mostly talking to myself here

Because I know I’ve ended a stupid decision with the word YOLO!

Do you know how many people have taken some drug just once and died, they know the true meaning of YOLO

Said the wrong thing and been in the wrong place at the wrong time and had life snatched away from them

You Only Live Once
