Promise Of A Lifetime

 

 

 


The different chapters, were never written to change the end of your story.

In fact it’s all working for good & that’s his promise.

More so, what’s whole heartedly given is never a waste.

Believe, that all things will be accounted for.

Besides you’re only making room for more.

Your tears that flowed only watered that seed & cultivating your soil was the sweat from your brow.

Definitely, all that you need will unfold.

For indeed, there are good things to behold!

So in the meantime & in between time.

Better things await, with all those acquired lessons.

See you’ve only gained wisdom & bitterness was never meant to rest within that heart of yours.

I know that life’s thrown its best punch.

Guess what? Throw it right back!

Those things that have come to rob you, will not persist.

May your sign always display “under 24 hours surveillance or better yet,

“Protected by THE MOST HIGH.”

On today set things in order, they must line up.

History’s already announced, unbreakable is the fabric of who you are.

Matter of fact, you’ve been broken in all the right places.

During creation, you were labeled “GOOD”.

There, and that’s all you can truly be.

His stamp of approval equates to a promise of a lifetime.

YOU

What is the core of your foundation?

In all that you do…

Maybe bricks or even sticks.

You know that building upon truth, will always cause your efforts to last.

Not saying that things will turn out like you plan.

Instead because of how you build, you can never go under.

For you’re the one, that’s meant to come out the fire.

You’re the one, that will come out the flood.

You’re the one, that was meant to always rise.

See YOU were built to last.

Truth will always bring you to a place of liberation.

Truth in essence is the root of your very foundation.

Sort of like that thing, the raging storm could never up root.

One that draws from living waters.

Bringing forth fruit in your season.

I see a tree, planted.

Therefore, life can never cause your efforts to die.

To that I said, indeed you will always rise.

In fact dream yet another dream.

How ridiculous is it?

Yes, that must be the one.

Your productivity is solely based on your posture in the vine. Much fruit in all that you do, is what’s meant to be.

For in this place, you’ve been given a second wind.

So stay your course.

In fact your end is expected.

For that’s the truth, the only way and your given life.

The pain behind the smile.


    They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul. If this is true then my smile is a reflection of all, I’ve had to endure. A lifetime frown, turned inside out & upside down. Planted in this place, leaves me no other option but to be built up from the ground up.

    Being made from the ashes of despair gives me a permanent reminder. That in the process of time, a garment of gladness is my daily wear. See, being sculpted from heaviness can result to pure joy. A foundation of heartbreak anchors me to a lifetime of gratitude.

    This etched out smile isn’t saying that  everything finally fell in place. What it says is that it all fell apart to be put back together again. This time around, all that resounds is better. Even though the walls were painted with setback, looking at those very walls…

    I now see brighter. From this  place, the journey’s a lil clearer. Oh how far I’ve come. Looking out the window of the only home I’ve known,  leads me to look up and in looking up is where I’ve found it all.

    The pain behind the smile remains my point of reference, in knowing bad you’ve been conditioned to appreciate good. This smile comes from within, and the external holds no weight when it comes to those things that’s within.

    Finally, I’ve discovered that with pain came wisdom, and wisdom that brought understanding. One that ushers you into that place. Now today the birth of what you are continues to unfold, like a story that’s yet to be told. That smile remains a preview of all.

A timeless tale that’s yet to come.

The P.S. of LIFE

A postscript to life’s story, that continues to narrate the unknown.

This added note comes from the things that I too had to endured.

The P.S. of life, your private struggles, will enable you to shine.

Rising above, out of the darkness into the dawning of a new day.

The same place you crawled, you’ll once again see but now you’re in flight.

It’s from a place of higher heights, possessing a deeper depth,

having a new perspective, and a different view point.

Your posture’s changed and now your position, magnifies that lowly place.

That place of isolation where the process happened, remains the point of reference.

You knelt in darkness, now it’s time to stand in the light.

They say “what’s done in the dark will come to light.”

If that’s true, your private struggles denotes your public shine.

Indeed, life will find you standing in the light.

THE ART OF DISCOVERY

What if 2017 is your set time to discover.

The entrance into a place of  discovering a whole new world, new possibilities, and opportunities.

The process of discovering, being uniquely yours.

Your tailored made expression, that takes you there.

One the utilizes every fabric of who you are, uncovering the canvas of your life.

See every stage and every phase is creating a master piece, that essence of you.

Your fingers by design have been placed in those colors.

Those bold colors, that say “I AM DISCOVERING.”

Maybe a chiseled sculpted piece, painful yet beautifully you.

Or a stained glass, stained by those tears yet perfectly broken.

Everything’s been set in place awaiting your arrival.

If we are created in his image, then you too were built to endure.

The art of discovery, will lead you to reveal HIS work of art.

 

 

You WIN

You’ve been gifted yet another day, where the sky continues to be your limit.

Where all your dreams remain possible.

The external things you have to deal with, will not impact your internal peace.

Today you’ve been equipped to step outside of the crowd.

Doing what only you can do all so well, and that is thrive.

You’ve mastered the art of enduring, and will continue through each given day.

To your naysayers the message is loud “I’ll give you something to talk about.”

To your sideline watchers “I’ll give you something worth watching.”

With your eyes on his intended plan, success is your reality.

Definitely, obtaining the mark of sweet victory makes it all worth it!

YOU WIN BY DESIGN.

Your BOAT

 

Row, row, row your boat,
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream.

Could your reality and things you daily face switch?

Could they become too good to be true or seem unreal?

 Tears of sorrow, now tears of joy.

No longer just tolerated, but celebrated.

As you row your boat and move through life…

Have the streams been gentle?

I beg to differ.

 The boat is your life, the stream being the things that you face or will encounter.

At times everything inside screams at the agony, but today I say …

Merrily, merrily, merrily, life can be like a dream.

Do you remember those times that felt like a nightmare?

When you waited for your alarm clock to wake you up.

 Ring, Ring, Ring… indeed your season’s changed.

You’re no longer where you use to be.
Your seed is coming up out the ground.

In fact , the water for your seed were your tears.

In this 9th month, start expecting.

For GREATER things are about to unfold.

Guidance

One would say that to be led in the path we take is so important, and there is a leading that’s second to none. In life and with the breaking of every new day, the sun will always light the way.

So let the sunshine, let the wind blow, let the rain fall. Don’t forget to let God lead the way. The sound of the times will always resound through every mountain and every valley low.

There you whisper, God yoU & I will DANCE. With uplifted hands, shoulders squared, feet planted… Take the lead, and I’ll follow. Through my trying times the melody of life sings a song, that the rain will always cause my seed to grow. While giving water to my thirsty soul.

Another sound that I consistently hear within, is that the wind will cause every substitution to go. Those things that have no meaning and seemingly take up space. When the real deal awaits, patiently for that final day.

See, you are never without a light. Even in the darkest times we call night, he’s provided the moonlight. Let the sunshine, let the wind blow, let the rain fall. Light of the world, you continue to light the way.

 

SHINE

It’s been days, weeks, months or even years…. Look around, you’re no longer where you use to be. Remember the pain, remember the disappointment and remember the doubt,  wondering if you would even make it. NOW it seems like a faded memory. Remember the tears that always flowed during the stillness of the night. At least your heart no longer bleeds like it use to. But your experiences have made you wiser and even a little kinder. You have moved past bitter and landed on better. You are priceless! It’s no longer why me? Instead it’s why not me. Life’s agony, led you to trust eternity’s plan. Truth is, you ran out of options and discovered HIS ways were best. Like a proud parent watching you during your dress rehearsal, “you have come this far and you are made for this” is what your father now says. My standing ovation is set, cause I will always stand for you. Within, you silently question, “made for this?” But it seems like everything’s gone wrong, or things that were unplanned just happened. He gently whispers, I included it all in my plans. A diamond in the rough, that through the process of living you will now shine. Going through your fiery trials  like gold, you’ve been refined.  A treasure chest you’ve been since, that moment in time.

READY, SET, GOLD… It’s Time To SHINE!!!  Take 1, you’re the main character, made for this starring role. Your story was written before time began and started to unfold. My peace will lead you and my joy will meet you.

IT’s Time TO SHINE!!!

 

 

 

Hello World

Imagine walking into a crowed room and taking a seat in the very last row, in a chair nearest to the door.

You observe and listen in on the different conversations. At times you manage to say hi, with an unsure smile…

Hello World, is what you are now saying with confidence. You’re now boldly standing in the same room where you quietly sat.

Every fiber of your being utters hello world, I AM. The echo of those words is an introduction, in that same place, with the same scenarios and those same circumstances. The difference here today is that you’ve been given every reason to step out.

You are ready to embrace the world. The driving force that defines you is everything your CREATOR said :

You are declaring… I AM created to accomplish. I AM equipped with everything I need.

Victory & Success are apart of my DNA. I AM destined to win by design!

From the seat where you comfortably sat to stepping out with all assurance. 

HELLO WORLD, I AM!
