Wait for It

Love can’t be bought or sold

It is priceless

Its value is untold

It is patient and kind

Holds no jealousy or envy of any kind . .

. . O how great it is

That it can be seen even by the blind

But no, love is not blind

It simply dismisses weaknesses to find

Indeed love is the greatest

Be patient wait for it, B’cos with love there’s no Lateness.

If

Posted: April 4, 2013 in Poems
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;If you can dream – and not make dreams your master;
If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:.
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build’em up with worn-out tools;If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings – nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son!

Rudyard Kipling

Saw this today and felt I should share, I find it gives all it takes to live fulfilled. But all I may feel to add is the fact that there’s no life near perfection without Christ, He’s the only way you can truly keep trying, smile in the midst of turmoil, He’s simply the only way PERIOD!

I wrote this a while back, and just decided to share and edit it….

*I do not seek to have riches like any man that has been on earth..
But if i must have let it be like that of Solomon.
*I do not seek to believe or have faith like any man that has been on earth..
But if i must let it be like Abraham.
*I do not seek to be versatile like any man that has been on earth..
But if i must be let it be like Otto Paul Adah.
*I do not seek to have wisdom like any man that has been on earth..
But if i must have let it be like Solomon..
*I do not seek to be a father like any man that has been on earth..
But if i must be let it be like Abraham.
*I do not seek to be a living legend like any man that has been on earth..
But if i must be let it be like Nelson Mandela

….Greats have come and gone after leaving a mark, I’ve seen and read thier stories. But now is the time for mine, my own way..
For I don’t need to walk in the shoes of any man on earth but in the the light of He who made the earth
I’m Unique…
I’m UNCOMMON!!

 

..The essence of this was to get myself to confront the status quo. And publishing it now is to get to others who can relate to this. Ever been in a position where you were applauded but felt deep down that you didn’t do you best? Knew deep down you could much better?? Well get out of that place, remember “in the land of the blind a one eyed man is an idol”. You may need to change those you spend most of your time with, you may need to upgrade you friends and colleagues. You can do much more, no body is better than you, just like the greats you’ve heard about you too have a lovely story the world would love to read about. Be Different, Be the Best!!

I wrote this a while back, let me share this here now…

I’ll give you a testimony about my friend

He taught me a lot and brought a lot of my problems to an end

When he was here it was like he did no harm

Even in difficult times he remained calm

When I expected a sigh he gave a smile

..The first time I saw him angry

Was when he caught some folks messing around with his fathers property

…. They plotted to put him away

And I must confess they had thier way

They put him to death

But…. But it didnt end there..

They didnt get the whole story

They didnt know that by killing Him, they only activated his mercy

And released his glory

Now, I don’t have to walk with him physically

He lives in me, like pharoah lived in misery

With Him I have more power than Ceaser

…. Folks, the name of my Friend is JESUS !
