Aware

Tonight,
I pray my mind will capture the fullness of Your thoughts toward me.

That as I sleep, my beating heart resonates with every note of Your love song. 

And at the wake of dawn, I rise with a loud awareness of Your presence.

Every nerve responding to the subtle surges of Your mighty power.

That in the light of Your countenance, stand I fearless in the face of every day.

Releasing sweet smelling odours of You while it is called today.

Bold folks

Hey! 

Still sharing some basic Christian thoughts I believe we should always be aware of. It’s a blessed week already. 

I’ve got a simple thought for us from the Bible. One thing I’m certain of is that when we open our hearts to God’s word and prayer, we are never left the same way. Something has happened to our hearts. 

From the previous post in this series, we now see that we are not alone because we have, not just nearby, but inside us the Holy Spirit. And I believe that because of this we can wake up to life as bold folks. 

We can face life knowing that we are aided by the greatest force in the universe!

[[Rom 8:15]] BSB For you did not receive a spirit of slavery that returns you to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”

This is a reality we have been called to be aware of. The Spirit we have received is not unto fear but unto confident declaration that God is our Father. We must see that this is really huge! That God, the creator of all, the Father of lights, the A L M I G H T Y is your Father(!) should blow your mind afresh everyday! In fact, knowing that we are God’s habitation is enough reason to be bold to face life. The believer is never without help! God is strong for us. 

[[1Jn 4:4]] KJV Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

See! The Greater One lives in you! And this is the seal of our victory. We are bold being aware of this. 

Ephesians 3:16 KJV

That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

There is a working of the Spirit in the believer that stirs up boldness. Paul was praying for the Ephesians that they be strengthened with might by the Holy Spirit that lives in them. This means as we pray, we can expect to see boldness and strength coursing through our souls. We are emboldened in the place of prayer. When we pray we begin to see for real that God is for us and He is mighty in us. 

Blessed?

To dad

Pops, 

All I ever wanted was to hear you speak to me again, repeat the same instructions you once gave. Perhaps this time, I really will understand.  But then you left me in the gloom of my errors. My heart sank and my tears called for you. But you were nowhere to be found. 

Could it be that you had given up on me so soon? Could it be that you stopped believing?

When you tore me off the snare of the limelight, were you just going to leave me in the dark shadows that plagued my days? 

I bring not a railing accusation against  you, for the same words you did not repeat to my heart have in the silence of my exile created pathways for my life

I long again to hear the wisdom on your lips, sit before your face to see them come alive with passion. I long to know again the extents of your love, the comfort you communicate in your words. And beyond being my father, I’d love to be your friend one more time, have those late night talks and prayers at dusk. 

I hope someday you will believe in me again.  You will see beyond my minds limitations and love on me again. You will no longer see the child I once was, but you will see the man I have become. And you will point me to Jesus again on a wider perspective. 

I love you pops. 

Your son.

The Holy Spirit 

Hello people! 
Today I want to start a series of posts on some basic Christian thoughts we should never forget. And I’m starting out on the subject of the Holy Spirit, God with us! 

And mahn, He is that personality that has been mystified by so many people such that sometimes believers don’t really know what to think of Him. 

John 14:16, 26 KJV

And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;[26] But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.


The word comforter is translated from the Greek word paraklētos (pronounced par-ak’-lay-tos) which means someone who is summoned, called to one’s side, especially as one’s aid. 

In the widest sense, it means a helper, succourer, aider, assistant. 
The Holy Spirit is the very life and essence of God released to the believer, and the Bible teaches that He is here to help! 
Jesus actually called Him “another Comforter”. This means He’s come to help in the place of Jesus while He is not physically walking the earth. 

This then implies that the Holy Spirit is the presence of Christ in us. 
Take note, 

Verse 16 of John 14 tells us how long the Holy Spirit will stay. Forever! 

He doesn’t leave. That means He is not subject to a bad mood. He is not vexed at your childishness. He stays come what may! 
Do you have the Holy Spirit? Yes! 

Ephesians 1:13 KJV

In whom ye also trusted , after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,



After you believed the gospel you were sealed with the Holy Spirit. 
And what is the gospel? 

1 Corinthians 15:1, 3-4 KJV

Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; [3] For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; [4] And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

It is the message of Christ’s death for our sins, His burial and resurrection. The sufferings of Christ and the glory that follows. And the scriptures teach that because we have believed this, we have the Holy Spirit! 

1 Corinthians 6:19 KJV

What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
1 John 4:4 KJV

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

The believer has the Spirit of God. The person of God living in her (him). 

This sure implies that the believer is not without help!
This summarises it for me. 

I’m not without help! 

I’m not without God!

He is always near. Never far away. 

I don’t need to pray for His presence. 

I only need to be grateful for His presence and involvement in my life. 
Hebrews 13:5-6 KJV

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. [6] So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

Blessed? 

Will love to hear from you

Hey Christian 

You chose to keep secrets

This is not a crime

And I don’t imply it is

But when we shine bright in the confines of our privacy 

We are as good as the darkness ravaging our land

The gospel is not a secret treasure 

It’s light that shines in dark places 

The message is God’s wisdom to the world 

Step out!

​My past called my name on the basis of my faults 

With loud shouts of guilt to shut my mouth before God 

Love called my name on the merit of His good works 

With loud shouts of grace that casts my fears away

Thursday Morning thoughts

Hi there. 

I know it’s been a while I came around here. And I’m starting out to be consistent again. Pray for me!😁

I wasn’t the one to have friends or a group of folks to roll with when I was younger. I was basically just on my own. Not anymore though. I have a couple of them now. 

And I believe so much in the power of relationships, how that we need people to survive. 

There are moments in life when we are tempted to be alone and do things on our own. And we could so allow folly such that we say things like, “I don’t need anyone” or “I’d rather do life alone”. Now that’s pride gone wrong. 

As much as we may want to live in some sort of denial, we need people that believe in us and in our dreams. People who see possibilities where others see our faults and failures. We may never know the extent to which this goes in shaping the course of our lives. We may never know how much our mindsets can been affected by the right relationships. 

I am a Christian, and I am responsible for my spiritual growth. I need to pray and study my Bible constantly. 

I admit that I won’t be doing enough of these if I don’t have certain relationships in my life. This means that my effectiveness in the course of the gospel can be strengthened by my relationships. And of course the right relationships. 

On the flip side however, the wrong relationships can hinder my growth and productivity. 

In some relationships, people see possibilities on a whole wrong level. So it’s beyond “He believes in me”.

I mean he could believe in your folly and strengthen it! You know what I mean? 

So here’s the summary of my thoughts. 

Have the right relationships that build you up. This is quite basic. But beyond this, honor your relationships.

If there’s this person that is all over you, always looking out for you and all. Hold them in high esteem because they have placed value on you.

This worths more than gold! 

And people know when you don’t value them. They know when you don’t believe in them the same way you see when they don’t believe in you. They know when your actions are just on a superficial level and not from your deep sincere insides. Our actions betray our hearts. Help them to always remember that they are appreciated, loved and honored.

I am

This same story plagued
Many centuries of our being.
Tales of woes
And rabbid foes
Not just folks that made
our bellies turn
Taking after the insanity
Of their profane fathers
But also the fall of nature
That spontaneously released
Savage diseases that ravaged
our bodies, striken with age.

A tale of NOs where we sought approval
Letdowns where all our hopes were planted
Our minds saw trees in our watered nursery
But no, our eyes only beheld the rot and misery
And we have become as it were
The most miserable of all

Oh Eve, you have cursed your daughters
Who have borne sons that toil with sweat
Breaking the ground in hope of labours reward
Oh how you have cursed your daughters whose
seeds are planted in the heat of passion
And their fruits borne with much tears and anguish

The beauty of the skies at dusk
fill our ears with noises of
disintegrating systems and the
folly of the elders

But I have come as light in gross darkness
Releasing colours and fragrant odours
I have come with that by which nothing
dies in my hands
I come with hope for bleak futures
Rewriting stories that once tore our hearts

For I am the breaking of many dawns
in many places an open portal of light
and encounters with the Godhead
I bear His very essence
For I am the work of His hands
His masterpiece
I am the possessor of the world
By the atonement in His blood
I call to be
I exert authority
Disarming the powers that were
yet feign to be.

I am He who was burdened
I am He who was yoked
But not again
For I have believed the promise
Of the seed and I have freedom
I am He who is called the Spirit-Man
Doing the works of Him who sent me
That the land may be healed again

For I carry life
Indeed I give life
I am the stirring of the sleeping sun
The blossoming of the waking flowers
I am the freshness of the garden herbs
The twinkle in the even stars

I am the falling of the morning dew
The sparkle left on the grass at dawn
I am the touch of the solar rays
It’s effect on the motions of nature
I am the calm of the evening breeze
For this purpose I was made

I am He
The Spirit-Man
In whose hands nothing dies

‘Seye Maj

Night

These days are long
And the nights have changed
My eyes don’t shut
Without the tears that hurt

My ears long to hear
The freedom song drawn near
For these days I fear
I may drown in my tears

I have grown to desire
The pain that speaks fire
Heaven knows I want liberty
Before my grief defines my state
