I Still Dare…!

 

I still dare to live life even when life is losing its meaning

I still dare to love myself even when the people around me turn heartless

I still dare to hope even when my courage is failing me

I still dare because I still have a breath in me

Devotional Nuggets – #93

 

It’s a glowing Saturday morning here in my little abode. I’ve just returned from the gym and the only thing on my mind as I walked back home was to remind us again that He is always there for us. I hope I’d reiterate the truth to us, in case we’ve lost some hope that He makes a way, where there seems to be no way. Continue reading

The Sunday Routine!

It’s another signal that the day has come

As the metal bell continues to reverberate

Like the voice of a thousand cries

Mingled with the melodic clanging

That echoed all through the countryside

Nearby, are the hurried steps of the weekly enthusiasts?

Clad in the finest of their Sunday apparels

The Reverend sat in the Vestry

With his hands clamped on his knees

Awaiting the tick of time for the benediction

He looked regal in his long robe

***************

It’s 10 0’clock and the cathedral is filled to the brim

The backside of the gigantic edifice parades heads of late-comers

Standing whispering subtle inaudible expressions

On the front row are empty seats

But no one dare rest their butts on these sacred spaces

Clearly inscribed on them were the revered words – Reserved.

For the knights and the affluent who fuel the gospel

***************

Ahhhh, Nkiru sat between the two aged women

In her usual demeanour of a saintly child

She raised her head skyward

And with hands clasped together, she begins to whisper

Oh Lord she begins

Oh Lord, teach me your words

Teach me in kindness

Teach me in love

Oh Lord, help us to learn your ways

Ignite the power of love among your People

Give us the divine impulse to show your love

So that the world will dine less in wickedness

So that your children will shed their evilness

And sheath the sword of hatred and violence

Oh Lord, give us a new heart of friendship

Of humbleness and compassion and of gratitude

To know that we are your children

Born to show love to one another

Born to sow the seeds of affability

And of good deeds

Oh Lord, protect our world

Protect our families

And make us prosper in your righteousness

Oh Lord, answer our prayers

And bless us beyond our words

Amen.

Peace and Love!

Devotional Nuggets – #92

 

It’s another great day that the Lord has made and I rejoice to be among the living. Only those people with breath can sing, can shout, can think, can dance, and can praise the Lord.

Today is September 2, and I just want to say thank you, Jesus, for another month when I add another year to my age. Life hasn’t been an easy terrain but you have been steadfast in your faithfulness.  Continue reading

Devotional Nuggets – #91

We may be facing many new challenges everyday, but have we ever reminded ourselves that if the Lord had delivered us before, He can and will deliver us once more? Or are we like the Israelites so quick to forget what the Lord did for them. Gratitude looks back to draw strength to face what is ahead .  – The Supernatural Lifestyle of Thanksgiving, Willy Chua

********************

 

It is good to recognize that there is so much to be thankful for. So much to look back and be grateful for. Even, there are bits and pieces, all of the little things that seem insignificant which we often forget to thank God for. But when we look back, we realize that we were saved only by His divine touch.

 

Let’s live a lifestyle that celebrates our appreciation even for the smallest grace of waking up and breathing sweet air into our lungs.

 

Have a blissful Sunday.

 

Peace and Love!
