Keep Moving – You are Somebody!!

Inspirational words/exhortation “Keep Moving” by Revd Martin Luther King Jnr (transcribed from a video)

This is the most important and crucial period of your lives…some of the things that should be in your life’s blueprint, you must have

1.A deep belief in your own dignity, in your own worth in your own somebodiness. Don’t allow anybody to make you feel you are a nobody. Always feel that you count.
Always feel that you have worth and always feel that your life has ultimate significance.

2.As a basic principle the determination to achieve excellence. In your various fields of endeavour are going to be deciding as years, days unfold what you will do in life, what your life’s work will be. Once you set out, do it and do it well. Be a bush if you can’t be a tree. If you can’t be a highway just be a trail. If you can’t be the sun just be a star, for it isn’t by size that you win or fail, be the best of whatever you are.

3.A commitment to the eternal principles of beauty, love and justice. Life has been for none of us a crystal stair but we must keep moving, we must keep going. If you can’t fly, run. If you can’t run, walk. If you can’t walk, crawl. But by all means keep moving!

When I saw the video with above inspirational words by Revd Martin Luther King Jane on a friend’s Facebook page in March this year, it reminded me of a poem I wrote last year:

Ability To Be A Somebody

A nobody can become a
somebody some day.
If not today or tomorrow it
shall be one day, ’cause
everybody has the ability.

It is possible if you do not lose focus or direction but set your sights on your vision, based on wisdom from the Divine Book of instruction.

Use the key of divine knowledge to open doors. Advance at the beat of the sound of your vision calling,
the pace is set by the rhythm of the songs of your heart resounding.

In the ascent to be a somebody, joys and trials are unwrapped as gifts, moulding for you a heart of integrity.

The blessed vision is a reflection of the somebody you have aimed to be beckoning as from the sky,
full of wisdom and knowledge of the Most High.

Be a somebody today to help a nobody find their way some day.

Poetic Justice – Raising Awareness of a “Bloody” Business involving Black African Victims

Black is Not

Black is Not Slack or …Muck but of Value as any Race!

We must raise awareness to caution Africans so that they do not fall prey to those who have set up businesses to deceive them & trap them.. read on: Share this as widely as possible!

There are some fake agencies from China, Korea, Japan and other parts of Asia currently opened in Nigeria, Ghana and other African countries, promising jobs (domestic ones, such as house-keeping, baby-minding, etc).

However, on arrival, they turn you to anything less than human. Murdering Africans especially girls for their kidney, Heart and Liver. Mostly our own African brothers and Sisters involving in human tracking to Dubai, Cairo especially in Libya, Egypt and Lebanon.

The agents prepare travel documents and everything; when the victim reaches the destination, they begin to live in hell and chances of stayinh alive are slim.

Think of the life you might save (or multitude lives) by circulating this or speaking to someone about it. The one you might save could be your relative and if not they are God’s creation of equal value or worth to you in His eyes.

DO NOT STAY SILENT!!

Thank you

 

Depression

A sinking feeling
Shuts down speech and laughter.
Within, the pain unbearable causes shrieks and wails.

The solitude felt in a crowded room, even when so
called friends are near. The feeling of drowning in a
bottomless pit is there.

Endeavour to depart and it grips you.
You a prisoner, never to be let go; THAT IS DEPRESSION.

Prophetic exhortation to those who have suffered racial affliction & victimisation

img_2397God’s intrinsic design of your makeup & origin were not a mistake. He created all men equal!

All God’s creation are precious and worthy to Him, should we therefore not embrace our God given worth regardless of our race, colour and nationality?

For some it takes time, God is patient and is saying the time is now to begin… do not hate yourself, skin colour, race or nation of origin because of how society or people have defined you or what they have said to hurt or mock you. If you do you grieve God who created you. It is as if you are saying He made a mistake or did not create you well. Who are you and I to think or say such things? Even if it is a learnt attitude (to self reject because of experiences), it is not an excuse. It is time to acknowledge such sins and repent. Embrace who you are within, your looks, your skin colour and your race and just carry on living expectant for God’s predestined purposes for you to be fulfilled as you surrender your life into His hands.

Even as a sinner God says He loves you with an unconditional love, He just wants you to repent and live in obedience so that you can enjoy abundant life as His child! Your race, skin colour, nation of origin are the “specifications” He chose for you and the fact that they are different in relation to someone else’s does not make you less of a human being or inferior to anyone for God did not rank these “specifications” according to their worth. Why not? because they are all of equal worth to Him. His intrinsic design for each individual and each collective race are equally beautiful in His eyes.
You have free will, but His hope is that you would agree with Him.

Poem: The Me I Know

The me I know is called black
that’s okay for it’s but a word,
a description of the colour
that’s my skin.

The me I know is God’s
that’s okay for it is the me reborn,
a state of being that’s in the
here and now and for His
purpose, I so define.

The me I know, knows her worth,
that’s okay for it’s a mindset shift,
a knowing of true self,
enabled by whose I am,
the divine.

The me I know who is His,
has escaped, that’s okay, for
it is time for release from
ancient potholes marked
“unworthy” to embrace the
liberation of the Saviour of
nations.
Soaring with healed wings
away from the snare of the
fowler and refusing a status
defined with distaste by
my external colour.

The me I know lives in the
reality of her Saviour’s
finished work among remnant
saints a family of nations and
tribes of a multicoloured hue,
that’s okay for we are one,
the human race.

God’s call on His People: “Be my Arms/Voice… Care for the burdened, wounded & lost”

Our Compassionate God reminds us of a key concern that is our mission: the plight of the burdened, wounded & lost.
Note: In the early hours of the morning of 20th August 2016, I had a vision: A door was open and I saw it led into the dark night and many people were being ushered through it, into darkness.

I started to sense the LORD wanted to speak so I took a pen and was led to write the following:

“Many souls are being lost, heading for the “dark night” of hell. Your Heavenly Father is saddened and grieved by this loss.

There are those who have been blindfolded into believing lies from birth, even about their worth, their state of mind and see themselves as subhuman, undeserving. But that is not how I see them, that is not what I created them to be.

Tell the saints, raise the sound and let them hear me now: This is your mission, what I have called you to do – to raise up those in the dust, those emotionally torn and so wounded they have lost hope.

Preach my word, teach it to all, but remember my arms are your arms to embrace, my touch is your touch to caress, my voice is your voice to speak words of comfort and encouragement. My ears are your ears to listen to those who no one will listen to, to those who have a burden they have carried as a heavy load for years.

I came to heal the broken hearted and it is through you that I can do the healing. You are my hands, my feet, my voice and my ears.

Take action! The world awaits you! My people, my creation are dying, emotionally worn and torn and beaten, mentally stressed and afflicted.

Who will go for me? Who? Many of those who are mine are busy but I say be busy for my bidding, for my commission, for that which I desire from you, be busy for my sake, my heart’s sake!”

Our compassionate God has spoken, let us heed to His voice. Amen.
