Such Love … Lovestruck!!!


I keep saying I’m falling in love with Love
There’s no other way to explain it
I’m blinded by love yet I see clearly
He literally loves me to death so how can I help it?
He chose to come get me so I could be with Him forever
He came all the way so I could be accepted as His bride
I still don’t think I deserve Him sometimes
But He keeps telling me that His love is enough for both of us

How can I help but love such Love?
How can I keep myself from falling in love with Him?
I am drowning in His love and I love it
I can’t explain this feeling but I want it.
You know lately I’ve been learning about wants and needs
So I know I need His love but I want it too.
That’s just amazing, such amazing love.
I can’t describe it – He loves me because I’m me

He loves me because I talk too much
He says its just enough to talk about Him

He loves me because I’m always about
He says it enables me to show His kind of love to others.

He loves me because I like my privacy –
He says He can always catch me listening for Him.

He loves me just because.
Not because I love Him because He loved me long befoore I knew He was
But just because.

He loved me to death!
Now He’s alive and I want you to love Him too
Why?
Because He loves you just the same.

 

Sorry I’ve been really busy but I wrote this in class today #RandomMomentOfBoredom and inspiration by God’s overwhelming love! Please share it and bless someone’s life. Thanks guys 🙂

B, C, D then E


Part I

They say life’s from B to D
Only the C matters to me
Birth to death with Christ in between
So I have to live with Christ to win.

They say ‘YOLO’ – You Only Live Once’
Well living without a purpose is just existing
Its in Christ you find your purpose for living
So they know it but they just lack understanding.

Life’s full of mazes
A fact that amazes
But it’s the exit point that matters.

In a bid to find it, there are so many shatters,
So many scatters, so many waters.
Sometimes we swim, sometimes we drown,
Sometimes we barely stay above so as not to go down.

Yet some people think I’m a clown –
They call me foolish
‘Cos I’m full of Christ ish
They call me childish
‘Cos I believe faith is the ish

Well it’s time for me to dish
Since God has called us to fish
Yes us – Me, you and you
Be a fisher of men – oh and women too
Display Christ in whatever you do
You just might be the only bible they see.

Who should we be?
Who are we?
I am me – bought with a fee.

Jesus’ blood paid the price and now I’m free
Yet I owe all to Him
I’m free from sin
I’m free in Him

I wish I could say I miss the ‘me’  I used to be
but I’d be lying –
Then I was dying
Its unfortunate I had to drop you to pull through
Nothing personal – but then again it His.
It’s me and my Saviour – I’m His!

Super Mario


Recently someone said something that got me thinking – ‘I am like God’s Super Mario’ – not in those exact words though. Playing Super Mario was one thing and ‘being’ Mario is another so I decided that being God’s Super Mario:

Game Controller

He should be behind the controls.

When He moves me left, I go left. He makes me bend or jump, that I do. He knows exactly what action I need to take. He sees the whole screen – I just see where I’m standing. I need to let go and let Him – If I don’t let Him start the game then I’d be in ‘preview’ mode and never go past that same point.

Best for Mario

He knows whats best for me.

He knows I need to stay plugged in to a source to remain alive. He knows I need Him to move me out of harm’s way. He knows exactly when I need extra lives and extra food and ammo and all that. He knows best. He knows the perfect time to jump on that shelled ‘thingy’ so it won’t come back and hurt me. I need to be patient even when it seems like I’m not moving because HE KNOWS!!!

Big or Small

Different phases, different faces.

There are different faces for different phases in life. There is a time for everything right? A time to be happy, a time to be sad; a time to laugh and a time to cry; a time to rejoice and a time to mourn – The list is endless. Because I love my ‘Star mode’ doesn’t mean I’m supposed to live in ‘Star Mode’ all the time. Sometimes I need to be ‘Little Mario’ or maybe plain old ‘Big Mario’ so I can use my ‘gun’! Different stages, different phases, different faces!!!

Stages

Life’s in different stages.

Super Mario World 1 Stage 1 – Life, so to speak, starts here. I move from stage to stage after overcoming all the obstacles. I need to finish one level before I move ahead because I need to be prepared for the next stage. Sometimes I may need to restart a level because He doesn’t feel like I’ve done well enough to survive the next level and He does want me to survive and be victorious!

Basically, I need to leave the control to God, He’s got the pad anyway. Whether I’m Mario or Luigi or I have Yoshi or not or I’m in Super Mario Bros or Super Mario World, I know He’s got a plan for me – I’m going to get to the end and be victorious (save the princess?).  I have to be as submissive as Mario is to me (I’m a boss like that! :D). What do you have to lose trusting Him, you only know what’s in front of you anyway plus you get a free theme song included!!!

Mario

Be a Super Mario today, trust your Super God today, become a Super Natural being in this natural world by His grace! 🙂

All I want for Christmas 2


All I want for Christmas … (Sorry. I had issues posting it online yesterday :()

Hope y’all enjoyed yesterday’s post. If you haven’t read it, click here. Today, we have a guy writing in. He is one person who just amazes me. He’s faithful to whatever he finds himself doing be it little things like carrying chairs or holding a lamp (inside joke :)) Just read and be blessed … Let me introduce you to Claude Ujile!

——————————————————————————————————————————————-

Man is trine in nature. Man possesses a spirit, soul and body. The body and soul finds expression from the spirit. Without the spirit the body and soul cannot function. The spirit man relates and connects the human with God.The soul comprises of the mind, the emotions and the will.The spirit cannot relate to the human being without an approval from the mind.The body is the dwelling place of the spirit and soul. It is the material part of man that relates to the physical world through five(5) senses.

The Son of God (JESUS) came to the world to save us from the slavery of the flesh and to give heaven access to the affairs of man by His Spirit. (Another Christmas reference :)) He died so we can all possess His spirit so that our body and soul will find expression with God without boundaries. It translates us from the kingdom of darkness into His marvelous light. We become new and old things are passed away (history, never to be remembered).

The new man makes us exhibit strange qualities that cannot be fully understood by unbelievers. (Gal 5:22) One of these is faith.

But without faith, it is impossible to please Him for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.

Faithfulness, in plain terms, is remaining LOYAL and STEADFAST. It hinges upon what we value as important combined with commitment. Humans have a powerful tendency to be faithful to what they think is truly important, be it a family name, spouse, friendship, cause, sports team or even a particular way of life.

LOYAL Implies showing firm and constant support or allegiance; CONSTANT suggests frequent or continuous occurrence  STEADFAST is resolutely or dutifully firm and unwavering. FAITHFUL thereby implies steadfast adherence to a person or thing to which one is bound as by an oath or obligation

We must have complete faith if we are to receive anything from God. Humans are generally unreliable and untrustworthy thus we are warned not to place our full trust in them.

But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

2Tim 3:1-5

We live in a world in which self-centeredness is being promoted to its greatest extent in human history. Constantly we hear, ‘Indulge yourself because you deserve it.’, ‘Spoil yourself because you work too hard’. I have nothing against you treating yourselves but there is someone out there who needs something so think about them and reach out. God is faithful to bless you!

———————————————————————————————————————————-

I hope we were all blessed by that. Bottom line – Go out and show love. Remember Jesus said He was hungry and thirsty and sick and you didn’t pay Him any attention (paraphrased) so here’s your chance. Someone needs that one (insert currency here) more than you do 🙂

God bless you as you PRACTICE not only read 🙂

Who is God?


I saw this and couldn’t pass it. It was written by an 8-year-old named Danny Dutton, who lives in Chula Vista , CA .

He wrote it for his third grade homework assignment, to ‘explain God.

EXPLANATION OF GOD:
‘One of God’s main jobs is making people. He makes them to replace the ones that die, so there will be enough people to take care of things on earth. He doesn’t make grownups, just babies.. I think because they are smaller and easier to make. That way he doesn’t have to take up his valuable time teaching them to talk and walk. He can just leave that to mothers and fathers.’

‘God’s second most important job is listening to prayers. An awful lot of this goes on, since some people, like preachers and things, pray at times beside bedtime. God doesn’t have time to listen to the radio or TV because of this. Because he hears everything, there must be a terrible lot of noise in his ears, unless he has thought of a way to turn it off.’


‘God sees everything and hears everything and is everywhere which keeps Him pretty busy. So you shouldn’t go wasting his time by going over your mom and dad’s head asking for something they said you couldn’t have.’

‘Atheists are people who don’t believe in God. I don’t think there are any in Chula Vista … At least there aren’t any who come to our church.’

‘Jesus is God’s Son. He used to do all the hard work, like walking on water and performing miracles and trying to teach the people who didn’t want to learn about God.. They finally got tired of him preaching to them and they crucified him But he was good and kind, like his father, and he told his father that they didn’t know what they were doing and to forgive them and God said O.K.’

‘His dad (God) appreciated everything that he had done and all his hard work on earth so he told him he didn’t have to go out on the road anymore.. He could stay in heaven. So he did. And now he helps his dad out by listening to prayers and seeing things which are important for God to take care of and which ones he can take care of himself without having to bother God. Like a secretary, only more important.’

‘You can pray anytime you want and they are sure to help you because they got it worked out so one of them is on duty all the time.’

‘You should always go to church on Sunday because it makes God happy, and if there’s anybody you want to make happy, it’s God!

Don’t skip church to do something you think will be more fun like going to the beach. This is wrong. And besides the sun doesn’t come out at the beach until noon anyway.’

‘If you don’t believe in God, besides being an atheist, you will be very lonely, because your parents can’t go everywhere with you, like to camp, but God can. It is good to know He’s around you when you’re scared, in the dark or when you can’t swim and you get thrown into real deep water by big kids.’

‘But….you shouldn’t just always think of what God can do for you. I figure God put me here and he can take me back anytime he pleases.

And…that’s why I believe in God.’

Its so simple yet straight to the point. As young as he is (or was), he knew God for himself. If I asked you who God is, most of you would say ‘He’s my father’, ‘My friend’, ‘God is my healer’, and so many similar things but do you really God?

Who is God to YOU?
