My heart is sore, as i lay down: exhausted
I close my eyes in a bid to sleep, an escape from reality
A vision is shown to me
the hidden things to come to being, revealed
things lacking soon to be in abundance
A blessing, an answer to prayer
I watched in awe, mouth agape
suddenly awake, back to the real once again
this time with hope, relief and expectation
which gladens my heart.
in the night
under the moonlight
with a little brightness from lampstand
a little light, a little darkness
in a still, peaceful and quiet atmosphere
i digest the contents of my novel with satisfaction
a permanent smile on my lips
after all chaos and noises of each day
i find my peace on the floor at the corner of my bed
next to the window where the cool wind lets itself in
i’m alone with myself for the next 9 hours
in my own world free to do whatever i please.
oh how i cherish those times…
Thank you lord for this year, thank you for the events that unfolded (good and bad). Thank you for the control you had over everything, so that at the end of each day we could say thanks.
Thank you for the peace we have, thank you for removing our fears, making them unreal. Thank you for your presence that walks with us every now and then, keeping us secure in the edge you built.
Thank you for your banner over us is love, thank you for this love is unconditional, thank you for it’s a love from a perfect father to an inperfect child, which surpases everything we could ever ask for.
Thank you for the things we have, thank you because they were blessings given freely from you, thank you for the things we don’t have that we ask for, because your word said, in everything give thanks.
How i wait on the lord to direct my path
i can’t see beyond my knowledge even when i try
life with God includes the wait as time varies according to his will
I ask myself if a God who waits patiently for me should not be waited for in return
in this words lies my hope that those who put their trust in God will never be disappointed
while i wait with the passing of time He charges the angels concerning my cause
though the evidence is wanting my faith is put to work
He saves the best for the last like the miracle of the wine in cannan
He gives comfort during the wait with assurance of hope
via Daily Prompt: Anticipation
As the days go by i watch, in anticipation,
of the day my fantasies become real
when i’ll read the truth in your eyes
that day is no where near, i think in despair
My need drives my hope, i’m uncertain, if it be a need or want
i’d wait till ever if need be
true love comes once a lifetime
and others a makeshift
when love calls, it calls right.
of this i’d rather be ready when it does
lessons still to be learnt, experience still to be gained
of this i’ll occupy myself till the time comes.
By accepting we make peace with who we are, who we were made to be. Excluding the negatitive need to please others and the need to be with those who cannot make peace with our being, freeing ourselves from the bondage of fear of rejection.
It takes the pressure off our lid, we find the lost meanings to our lives, and fall in step with those who are ready to live and do life with us. Knowing that self acceptance attracts appreciation from others.
We follow the promptings of our hearts without the fear of judgement and criticism, fully satisfied with our existence and taking the rein from those who held it for so long to lead ourselves to our long awaited destiny
Finally, we can impact lives we ought to impact, and proudly say to others, i lived my life without negative outside influence, i followed the desires of my heart and i love the results. My idea of success is not the way you’d describe it, but what’s more important than success is a fulfilled life and that’s what i’ve got.
There’s more, because God made us a master piece, he loves and cares about us, He wants us to be aware of his love for us and he shows it by freely giving everything we have right now and is willing to do more, more if we humbly go to him to ask. OUR identity is with him and he wants us to know how secure we are with him.
Now i love myself and i can appreciate those around me too.
