I surrender

All that I am,

I place in your hands,

All that I long to be,

I trust you

All that I cherish,

Is in you

All that worries me,

I give to you

All I need,

I ask of you

Just as I am

I surrender.

 

I place myself

At your feet,

There I find comfort,

And guidance

 

By myself I‘m nothing,

But with you,

I overcome

Alone, am tired and worn out,

With you I’m refreshed and hopeful.

 

I surrender to you

Oh God,

Be my guide,

And my comforter,

Evaluate the man you date and understand the man you married

Evaluate the man you date and understand the man you married

Evaluate the man you date and understand the man you married

Evaluate the man you date and understand the man you married.

Many of us are found of evaluating the man we married, rather than the man we are dating! And that is so wrong! Well that is my opinion. I believe once you’re dating, that is the time to evaluating if this cute guy actually respects you.

Unfortunately when we’re dating we tend to focus on the gifts they shower us with, the ticking clock, our friends are all married, he is cute, and he is ready to settle down… why the wait? We lament to our selves! We pay no attention to what we’re settling with” So one month after the alter we start evaluating our husbands.

If he doesn’t respect you when you’re dating he won’t change over after the wedding. If that is what you said ‘I-do’ to, for whatever reasons you had, why are you stressed? I don’t mean that you take in all the trash he sends to you… all I’m saying is, evaluate the man you date, and understand the man you married.

You may not see all his bad characters, he can actually hide them away from you… but a bad guy won’t turn into a good guy overnight.

“What if am married to him already?” Am not married so I can’t claim to know it all, but am told ‘prayer works!’ Pray for him, ask God to work through him and do your part as a wife; understand him, support him, encourage him, and don’t try to criticize every little thing he does or raising your voice at him. However you can try to show him the danger in what he is doing.

What more can I say?
Happy Marriage!

God wants us to know

Free we should be

Free we should be

God wants us to know

I cry in the middle of the night
Do you?
Something touches my soul
Do you feel it?
Am not alone,
You’re not alone.
And God wants us to know.

God is there,
He is, for us
Just for us,
We’re not alone.
And God wants us to know.

You’re are hurt,
Am hurt too,
But we have to forgive,
Not that they deserve it,
But we do!
And God wants us to know.

God wants us to know
We don’t deserve to hold a grudge!
For we’re his temple,
God chose us to be free
Free we should be

Forgive them,
It’s hard
God knows too.
Let’s open our hearts for Him
And see things in as He sees them

He wants you to be happy
He wants me to be happy
His love is perfect
His name is healer
I and you are ‘his-own’
And God wants us to know.

God wants us to know
Forgive and be forgiven
Be happy and free
Then your spirit will worship Him.

I Know That Woman

I Know That Woman

I know that woman
that says only things
she does not believe,

I know the one that
claims to hate love
when all she yearns for is
to love and be loved.
And she cries holding
strong on her pillow,

I know that woman that
hates feeling like a woman
because men treat her
less of her value.
And keeps her self
busy not feel alone,
I know that woman.

I also know that woman
that takes pride in her self,
and the fact that she is a woman.
When she walks by,
ever man turns around.
And she likes that;
it makes her feel attractive
and young inside.

I know that woman that
closes her eyes,
when she is kissed or hugged
as she saves every moment.
She adores her self and glorifies
God in all she does
for He made her who she is.

I know that woman.

Just as you are about to say good bye to love

We long to fall in love, hold on to it as we enjoy every moment as it unfolds in our lives. We long to be loved and love as it’s a desire the creator put in our hearts.

However they are moments when we close the door to love, with a sharp pain in our hearts that it brought us in its last visit. And just as you say Good bye, Love knocks again on your door.

You may sit on the floor with you back on leaning on the door and cry, due to the fear you have in your heart. You may wonder, should I open the door, should I let my heart to this love again, what about its pain?

Truth be told, no one can say, they wont hurt you and you can’t promise the same either, something may go wrong, something will make you cry at some point… but amidst love… there is something that will make you smile, laugh and make you feel lighter.

That is what you will cherish, but you will never know unless you open the door to love.

What if we stopped complaining and gave a hand?

For the last two weeks I have been wondering; how would this planet be if stopped complaining and did something about the things we believe are ‘not fair’ as we call them?

Like if each one of us opened a door to the homeless or to someone else’s dreams, or provided a meal to the hungry paint that picture with me and see a changed and great planet.

But NO, we don’t do that and some other people use these same people we have failed to help to make their own dreams come true… I don’t mean to sound bitter but I always look at the street kids and I feel terrible inside of me. We have given up on helping them because we believe it’s a ‘business’. Am not saying we should invest in some ones business but can’t we do something about the street kid that is being abused?

Another area that really gets to me is how we complain about our leaders; this area has two personalities; those that believe they can do better and don’t contest, and those that sit on their opinions and complain about the results.

I just keep wondering if some of you believe you can do a better job, why don’t you come up and urge us to support you, and those that don’t vote and then you question the results… honestly I have no words for you, may be you tell me whom you expect to vote for you?

We all know what we do and how we complain at the end of the day, my only prayer is that we just stop complaining and do something on those areas we feel uncomfortable with. Let’s give a hand, take a stand to the things we believe in, make our voices heard and take lead where need be for this will make this planet a place we want it to be.

Fallen

Fallen

We have fallen,
A fall
That we’re not proud of,
One not worth to boost about
Or wish for others,

It doesn’t matter if we fall anyway
It doesn’t matter if we spoil our garments,

The only thing that matters is,
We have to stand up,
Clean up and move on.

Am with you,

Am with you,

I smell you in every breath I take,
I hear the sound of your foot steps, in ever move I make,
I when I fall I land on you.

I rise with you,
You rise with me,

You watch every move I make,
Every word I speak,
And each tear I shade,
I cry with you.

In the darkness,
You don’t close your eyes,
And you watch me sleep
As you control my breath

You’re such a friend,
A provider,
A guider,

Thank you Lord.
