My Heart

Nursing a broken heart,
Lost my precious part,
Thought the pain will become my past,
But it grows deeper like it was meant to last,
Is there hope that’s left to trust,
Or springs of Joy to quench my thirst,
Cause the pain is making my heart crust,
And the memories of the past are grinding my heart to dust.

Say it

Sometimes they want you to say it

Even when none of those words makes sense,

Sometimes they want you to say it,
Cause their spaces are full of pain,
And those words you withholding are the hope left to gain,

Sometimes they want you to say it,
Even a whisper will heal their dying hope,
That whisper can bring an inch of pain to a stop,

Sometimes they want you to say it,
Cause that inch of pain lost is worthy, Than an itchy pain of a broken heart,

Sometimes don’t keep it tell them how you care,
Or whisper to them that You are always there.

What’s Your Purpose of Serving?

What’s Your Purpose of Serving?

This week I stumbled upon this verse in a letter of Paul to Galatians that says,

Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings or God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ. Galatians 1:10 NIV

This is Paul Boldly rebuking the people of Galatians who have been comprising the Truth of the Gospel of Christ, to please others, yet they consider themselves as true servants.

And he makes a bold truth to them that the aim is not to please Man But God.

If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.
What he’s telling us here is that we cannot be servants of God if we intend to seek to please Man.

Because if our service in the house of the lord is to please the congregation then we missed out on the purpose of serving God.

The is no way we can serve him and at the same time serve to please Man, The point here is we either choose to please God or Man but we cannot combine the two.

Friends, it’s easy for us to be motivated by the fact that someone is watching us, “so let’s do more to make them happy” “or to look cool” or receive compliments or praises and forget the ultimate purpose of Our service to God.

If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:11 NIV

Peter makes it clear here that our purpose to serve is to bring praise to God and serving isn’t about us receiving attention or glory or approval from others but it is for God to receive the Glory.

Looking at 1 Samuel 12:24 this what it’s says
Only fear the Lord and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for considering what great things He has done for you.

Let the driving force of Our service to God be to offer Our gratitude for what he has done for us, and how he has loved us for us. And use this to glorify him in truth and with all our hearts.

When we serve God alone, faithfully, in truth wholeheartedly, then he will free us from being bound by the approval of Men.

Man approvals will judge you, man’s approval is not out of Love, Man approval will demoralize you because not every day will they shower you will praise, Man approval is selfish not everyone will want to hold you higher than themselves every time. But we should endeavor to seeks God’s approval and that will serve his purpose for us.

As a servant of God, I have had to spend so much time to explain to people why there is a need for them to serve because for some it sounds like they are being put on the spot, to some it’s an opportunity for them to earn a Name before other and praise, but this is not the point.

The point is when we are at a place of Serving, we should acknowledge that we are insufficient and that it’s through Christ’s sufficiency in us that we are granted the ability to serve faithfully.

And Yes it’s okay to let people know of your service, but do it for His Glory and not your own, because whenever you put God out of the picture that’s when pride checks in

With this truth, People should be running to serve God in his vineyard with the ultimate purpose being to Glorify God.

Galatians shows us the outcome of serving at a place of pleasing men, we see the people of Galatians moving away from preaching the Truth of the Gospel of Christ and dwelling on false teaching even Peter himself at one point started drifting away from the truth and Paul rebuked him.

Because we don’t want to look bad we will always find ourselves compromising the Truth of the Gospel of Christ. And this is not only in our speech but even in our actions.

And I will leave you with these two questions,
1. What’s your purpose of serving at your local church? Is it because your pastor Called you to serve and you don’t want them to think you don’t honor what they say,
2. Does your service to God preach the Truth of the Gospel or does it Compromise the Truths?

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this article, feel free to drop a comment on the comment section below, let us know how you plan to respond to this Truths, and how this has changed your view on your services to God, we would love to hear from you.

God Bless you…

Addictive Struggles

Addictive Struggles

So much has changed,
Some of my pieces broken,
My innocence estranged,
And my actions unspoken,

There are midnight struggles,
Covered by my morning glows,
Am scared of the troubles,
Cause life served enough blows,

Where I put a full stop. I find a comma,
Cause the struggle keeps finding me,
I hope they still proud, even in my drama,
I miss the days that I was me.
Because am lost can’t find me

Innermost griefs

Innermost griefs

Tear of emotions whelping down,
Should I keep wishing,
Cause am tired of searching,
For that love that got me drown

That embrace on you face,
When your eyes got lost on mine,
I don’t miss the time I miss the moments,
I can’t say am fine cause your absence brought ailments,

Am weaker everytime I get bigger,
I was stronger when you held me,
The near falls that you saved me,
The touch that birthed vigor,

I can’t move,
You are nowhere to push me,
How I can I behave,
When you absence cannot guide me,

Am now jealous of your absence,
I guess it’s lovely where you are present,
I know you’ll keep winning on my absence,
But I am here, hoping to meet you where you’re present.

The Inner-Tie

The Inner-Tie

I want to talk about something,
I keep thinking from deep inside my heart and it keeps hurting,
The hurt that Keeps strangling My breathing,
when am thinking about it I feel drained with pain and I fell strained,
Listen, Just the other Day,
The Day before the Day and I mean the Past of Yesterday I met her,
Her Beauty like a star twinkling on my scars that incurred from my last Heartbreak,
Looking at her eyes I felt she was the one, even though Deep inside me I doubted that I was the one for her, But I still followed her,
Then it started with the walks and talks on the streets as we mock our talks,
Then Hallo Babbie could you come over, Over my Mind, I knew this wasn’t right but I kept going consoling myself that, it’s going to be anything But,
But the Pillow fights and talks ended up being everything that led us to the Battlefield,
where Pain was Pleasure and we were under pressure,
Fighting ourselves into sin, we went deeper into the sinful Depth,
dying from the inside, but Wrapped up in pleasure,
ruining the future Treasure, and Killing my inner treasures
and before we knew it,
we were torn beyond measure with our souls tied together,
the end was in silence, like Adam and Eve we felt exposed, guilt Proposed
and before I Knew it My heart said yes to shame, hate, shocked and
worried that the shame that I Planted inside of her could grow out into Blames,
then I forced her to take the pill that could push the Bill away, forgetting that Guilt will never get out of my way, then Love became Hate,
Hate is what we ate, every time we met, Hate is what we felt, I kept promising myself that I will be fine with time,
But every time I thought I was fine the thought of that Day Kept coming my way, Her impression became my Depression, I felt weak, my inner self was sick tied to the other, cause the guilt inside of me eat me from within and killing my inner powers,
then it hit me that it was time to confess, but how was I to confess it,
was i to confess the day, or the act, should i say sorry lord it was too sweet to stop, Or should i say sorry Lord for that Day, But anything can happen cause I could still feel myself inside the pot, I asked myself what is the meaning of confession when your desires urge you not to stop?? to be continued……….



If only water could dilute you then I would prefer being aquatic,
If only a dose of your killer would get you off my heart,
Then I would overdose it,
Am running out of tears cause the feeling of you in me is so intense.
Making it hard to fall for happiness,
You took away my nights of sleep forced me to embrace you,
Pain who are you and what do want from me,
Ain’t you tired of the troubles you cost me,
Ain’t you tired of draining the wells of my tears,
Ain’t you tired of giving me doubts n fears,
Ain’t you satisfied even after happiness dumbed me.
Ain’t you tired of giving me restless nights.
Pain please leave me alone,
Pain can you hear me?
I don’t need you in my life
Pain ain’t you tired of shrinking my gains,
And killing all my inner powers,
Pain what do want from me?
You’ve corrupted my mind with past memories to honor your presence,
Am gaining losses and losing my senses,
Pain, I am writing this to you, please let go of me,
I found Peace as my true love.



What is Love without Sacrifice?
What is love without going out of your way for others,
What is Love without paying the prize for others selfishness?
Paying the Prize for Our iniquities.

Love is not Love without your sacrifice on that cross,
Love is not Love without your blood that was shed to cleanse Our Souls.
Love is not Love without your death that gave us life
Love is not Love without the pain and suffering that earned us forgiveness.
Love is not Love if he didn’t give us his only begotten son to die for our sins.

God is Love
He is kind
He is selfless
He never fails
He is humble
He is truthful
He is faithful

Love is not Love it was not for him
Love is Love when we believe he lives inside of us.
Love is Love when we accept, Believe, and Confess that He died for us and we should live for him.

Love is love when I sacrifice My desires to Glorify Him,
Love is Love when I choose to walk through the Righteous paths,
Love is Love when I share it with others,
By preaching the good love of the Father,

God is love and Love is Love when he lives inside.
