Day 26 of 30

Day 26: My religious beliefs

As many of you can tell from my blog, I’m a Christian. This means I believe in Christ: his coming, his dying, his resurrecting and his second return. I also believe in the Holy Spirit who is my comforter and revealer of hidden truths. I believe in God, who is my Father, my mighty warrior, creator of the universe and my closest friend.

Lantern and Lamb

He was both the lantern and the lamb

He was the light

Clothed in a dusty frame

That still shone brightly

In spite of the darkness surrounding him.

Extreme

xtreemSometimes God uses extreme situations to get our attention. I’ve found this to be true. Days when I’m doing everything right and following my usual routines seem ‘blah’ in comparison to days when I trip and fall into temptation. Days when imperfection is boldly written across my forehead. Such days when I feel like a worthless piece of rag God wouldn’t want to have anything to do with – those are the days when I hear Him. When I feel Him. When I know without a doubt, the undiluted grace of God. You wouldn’t know the gravity of forgiveness until you’ve done something really wrong.   Continue reading “Extreme”

Imitation

When living like you is want I want to do 

I find myself being called an imposter 

‘Cause I only love when I feel like 

Talk about God when it’s convenient 

Heck! 

I’m so scared of being called a ‘Jesus Freak’ 

When I would rather be the coolest one on fleek 

 

Loving you? 

Pssst! That’s easy! 

Loving them? 

Do I really have to? 

 

See I know you died for my sins 

But every day I feel like I’m nailing you to the cross 

By the lies and pretence I play like candy crush 

 

Help me Lord! 

Now that’s my heart cry 

I realize I’m no superhuman 

Even though I have the supernatural genes 

In my blood 

Flowing from the blood which spilled on the cross 

 

Now how do I, 

A child of the king 

Live on earth with no authority? 

How do I rule and reign with Christ 

When my eyes still lust after the kingdom of the world? 

 

I want to live like you 

Now that’s more than just a prayer 

Cause I know living like you 

Means loving others the way you do 

Staying at peace with all men like you 

Withdrawing from the crowd and fame 

To go to the Father, hallowing His name 

 

I realize I can’t live like you on my own 

They can see through my facade 

So please help me 

 

A mere mortal 

Made immortal 

By the touch of immortality 

Keeping me above immorality 

 

Help me not to get entangled in the web 

That I forget to ‘X’ the page 

And turn to you for a clear reboot 

Unclutter my soul and ‘shift + Del’ my messes 

 

I want to be like you in every single way 

And if I have to die everyday 

Help me pay the prize 

Cause being just like you is all I want to be

Death Has Died

death

Death has died!

Scream it in the streets!

Let the world know

The darkness is gone

The light has come

Death has died!

The unrestricted restricted Himself

To set us free from the chains

That have restricted us

Oh death!

Where is your sting?

Oh grave!

Where is your victory?

Alas!

The end has come! They cheered

Aha!

It is finished! He said

They thought it was over

They thought they had Him bound

But He could never be put down

By His strong hands death has died!

Oh death that scares the sons of men!

Oh grave that has swallowed up warriors!

What power do you have

To keep the one who is Life, dead?

Victory! He shouts

Bursting out of the belly of hell

With the keys of death in His hands

Death has died!

Shout it in the streets

Let the world know!

He is risen!

With an empty grave left in His wake

Nothing can hold Him bound

Not even the clenched jaws of death!

And as for you,

Rejoice!

For the victory won

Was a gift to give

Death was the bride price

To make you His very own adorned bride

Do not be afraid

Do not be sad

For your groom is alive!

And by His mighty hands

Death has died!
