Poem: A Second Chance – Monica

https://i0.wp.com/www.wednesdaynightservice.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/gods_strength2.jpg

The poem is titled Second chance….on August 22, 2006 my aorta dissected while I was at work. When I made it to the hospital they checked me out and realized the signs had disappeared and was sent home.

My dear sweet mother who is no longer here on earth with us would not allow them to send me home. When they took a x-ray of my chest they could see that my aorta was gushing. They wanted to airlift me to a hospital in Houston Texas but they felt that I would not make it. So they transported me to another local hospital where I went straight into emergency surgery. The poor nurse cried and looked so distraught when the doctors told me my prognosis. But GOD had already told me that everything would be okay if I believe. – Monica

GOD in his exuberant splendor
Rendered, me a second chance
He outstretched his hands
Whispering my child, just trust and believe in me
I will restore thee
No matter what the doctors may  say
You are protected by the covenant, of my word
Doctor number one saying you have a ten percent chance
Doctor number two saying this is a unfortunate circumstance
Doctor number three saying do you understand
I am smiling with confidence
I have already accepted GOD’S plan
The nurse in tears, because by medical terminology
Theology in this case is overruled
Her eyes offer an apology
While they say, you are dying
My soul says I’m not complying
I am aligning with GOD’S
exquisite design for my life
The nurse tears continue to fall
Her dire compassion compelled
To understand my untroubled rapport
There was great urgency
Emergency surgery
But I already knew
That GOD was gone bring me through
Two major surgeries back to back
The surgeon is baffled how my body sustained all of that
Protected by the armor of the redeemer
Who holds the power to enhance
GOD gave me, a nobody, a second chance

Word of Encouragement by DAfricanLady

Quick Science lesson. An aorta is the main artery in the body (the heart). I don’t think I need to say anything else but how amazingly God works.

Question. Who has the final say?

Answer: No one else but Jehovah Jireh, our King of Kings and Lord of Lords has the final say. It is the report of the Lord that matters and stands.

Who has the authority to categorise you with a titled disease or a condition? When the Lord has already promised you divine health and has protected you by His covenant of His Word (Lamentations 3:27; . A covenant that is has being promised forever, never to be broken for a thousand generations (Judges 2:1; Psalm 105:8; Psalm 103:2-5).

Ensure you are living according to His Word, do it in faith. Believe in His promises in faith. Your life will never be the same again.

It is never too late to seek God and give your life to Him.

Poem: Mercy – Jemilea Wisdom

 

Sinner.
I write it on my forehead with an imaginary marker
My reflection in the mirror
Is the flesh, I the viewer sees
Instead of the master.
Guilt penetrating my emotive senses,
Punishment I feel is necessary for recompenses
Recognition of my sin causes me to burden myself
Cultivating non existent chains to bind and break my spiritual health.

Malnourished,
Starving,
a result of spiritual anorexia
Scriptual bulimia,
undigested truths
I cant stomach,
regurgitated manna, stuck in my tooth.
Cramps, pain,
rampant, aches
Sickly, scrawny and underweight.
I’m so ashamed,
Hide under baggy clothes to escape the gaze
Of the ‘saved’ and ‘sanctified’
I hibernate for days.
Beating myself down for my mistakes.
Remorseful, regretful, repentant

Yet I avoid confession,
Unable to fall on my knees
Ignoring the advocate
Shunning the throne of grace.
I cease
Lost in self pity.

Blinded by disgrace

Yet patiently waiting…
Is his loving embrace
I fight through condemnation
To be comforted by mercy
Saved from damnation,
although I’m unworthy
I rise.
To change.
I rise
to proclaim

GREAT IS HIS MERCY

How can I remain the same?
Jemilea
Follow her @poeticJemz

I rememeber when I first met Jemilea at an Open Mic event. By the way, when I say met her…I mean sitting in the audience and listening to her poem and continuously clicking my fingers (check the link below)….and then thank God for social network, I asked her to feature in the Testimony Blog with her own personal testimony as a poem. *Happy Times*

Anyway, Our God of Mercy.

I just want to encourage people out there, that no matter how messed up you think your life is, no matter how deep in sin you think you are in.. God is a forgiving God, He is a merciful God.

His mercies are new every morning.- Lamentations 3:22-23

All you have to do is cry out to Him: “Lord I cry to You for Your mercy”.

He is waiting for you, always was, always is and always will be.

How comforting is that knowing this, hmm?

Poem: Sorrow into Joy – Kimberely Noble

When Jesus filled me with the Holy Ghost, he exchanged my sorrow for joy and laughter. For me, that is the biggest thing in my life for which I am most grateful. He has done an abundant more things through every up and down, but what is life without joy? without laughter?
 https://i1.wp.com/emmottontechnology.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/SMILE.jpg

“My testimony is in the words Christ gave me since birth

Transforming my negative mentality into power to exalt His Divinity

And give words worth

I was once trapped in the confines of what I lacked

And really, depressed by my past pretty bad

Sudden heart attack took away my precious dad

And I harbored hatred for a God who would do something like that

I know He is sovereign and can give and snatch

But why take something so precious from a family so fast

Age 5 I cried

And cried

And days passing wished it was me, not dad, who died

I cried until I reached almost age 21

When I will was filled with the Spirit of the Omnipotent One

Who became my Father

He made the void of my past feel like it never started

Retarded my tears with His overwhelming love

I feel His Spirit at times like a tangible hug

I freely receive

And now I bleed different words on the page when I write

​That life becomes more when you walk it out with Christ​”​

​- Poet Noble


D’s Word of encouragement: Your mourning, your suffering, your sorrow…is only temporary. It has already been declared that  the

present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

– Romans 8:18

One thing about your sorrow is that God doesn’t just make them disappear,  in actual fact, He transforms them into joy. Transforms your mourning into dancing. He takes your failures and turns them into success. Remember what he said in Romans 8:28:

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God

This certainly does not mean that all that happens to us is good…no way! Evil is prevalent in our fallen world today but our great God is ABLE, able to turn EVERY circumstance around for our good in the long run…

…to those who love God, those who trust God, not life treasures, they look for security in heaven, not on earth, they learn to accept, not resent pain and persecution because God is with them.

Your sorrow…is only temporary.

Testimony: To Rejoice About Christ Through Sound with Anthony Rocco

Hiiiiii! It’s Testimony Thursday!

So today, instead of reading, watching, it’s time to listen to a beautiful track/poem called Testimony by T.R.A.C.T.S (To Rejoice About Christ Through Sound) with Anthony Rocco –Thank you!

T.R.A.C.T.S. has returned to music production after a hiatus of several years. His passion has been reignited because of his new focus and purpose. He now looks at his musical talent as a gift from God and as such, he wants to give glory back to God with the gift he has been given. The name T.R.A.C.T.S. actually stands for – to rejoice about Christ through sound which is his goal every time he creates music.

D’s Word of Encouragement:

The joy and fulfilment you get from society will always have expiry date.

However, the joy you get from the Lord is everlasting and will bring you to the Kingdom gate.

Brothers and sisters, never think you’ve fallen so deep into sin,

That the Lord can’t set you free, to give you a new journey to begin.
