Do not boast…

This is what the Lord says:

“Let not the wise man (sic; woman…)…boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight, declare the Lord.”

-Jeremiah 9:23-24-

I press on…

“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take a hold of that for which Christ Jesus took a hold of me.”

“Brothers (sic Sisters), I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it.”

“But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”

-philipians 3:12-14-

Priorities

The basis of self-discipline is not the self, you
You’re neck is as long as an antelope,

Good batteries,

The lazy man does not roast his game,
Priorities,

Scientific,
Ink,

Hate!

Despite,
Believe,

Because,
Democracy!

Religion,
God!

Kenyan,
Cheerleader, and

I need a one dance,
Waiting for you,

John Denver,

What’s in the way,
Is the way,

Success
Is my birthright; wait!

Death is a part of it!

Anything I can do as a horse,
Let to water to drink,

Donkey!

Ancestral freedom is free.
They all went to win, Philosophy

And have not looked through the Telescope.

♦Matthew 17:14♦

-When they came to the crowd, a man approached Jesus and knelt before him.-

If only

If only I had the time, the
Patience,

Less ambition, if
Only I knew right from wrong, I

Would change the world, paint it

Pink, I would
Love freely, if

Only I could.

Even in money

Today my praise for God knows no bounds. It feels like gratitude so overwhelming that I cannot breath.

It feels like those many moments – but so few in Life – that a mother looks at her child.

It feels like lovers everywhere, caught in that moment of time, when that glance….that indescribable glance…means everything will be ok.

It feels like the moment you get out of debt, only to realise that you should never have been in debt in the first place.

Jesus delivered one of the densest parables in Luke 16: 1-14

It’s interpretation continues to confound and interrupt human notions of Justice and the Afterlife, and of the ‘goodness’ or ‘badness’ of money.

I offer only one of those here that I found;

“…Jesus invites us to realize that, first, our money isn’t really ours — we’re simply managing it for its real owner, God. Second, even “filthy lucre” can be pressed into the service of God and our neighbor. When it is, the benefits will last beyond this life — which the things we buy for ourselves won’t...”

Forgive debt, and try, as much as possible, to be free of debt. If you find yourself in debt, remember, you are in debt. You cannot kill the one you have borrowed from. However remember also, to the extent that you live your life in the surety of life after death, that you add to faithfulness, goodness;

To goodness, knowledge;

To knowledge, self-control;

To self-control, perseverance;

To perseverance, godliness;

To godliness; brotherly (sisterly) kindness, and;

To this kindness, love –

Then;

The fruit of the spirit is;

Love;

Joy;

Peace;

Patience;

Kindness;

Goodness;

Faithfulness;

Gentleness, and;

Self-control…-

beyond you’re debt, untouchable.

God also speaks to the manager.

And gets ‘filthy money’.

Oil to make his face shine

Mary Mary

“Shackles (Praise You)”

Whoo!
It sure is hot out here
Ya know?
I don’t mind thought
Just glad to be free
Know what I’m saying, uh!

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you
(What’cha wanna do?)
I just wanna praise you
(Yeah, yeah)
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
(Uh feel me?)
And I’m gonna praise you
(What’cha gon do?)
I’m gonna praise you

In the corners of mind
I just can’t seem to find a reason to believe
That I can break free
Cause you see I have been down for so long
Feel like the hope is gone
But as I lift my hands, I understand
That I should praise you through my circumstance

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you
I just wanna praise you
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
And I’m gonna praise you
I’m gonna praise you

Everything that could go wrong
All went wrong at one time
So much pressure fell on me
I thought I was gon lose my mind
But I know you wanna see
If I will hold on through these trials
But I need you to lift this load
Cause I can’t take it anymore

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you
I just wanna praise you
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
And I’m gonna praise you
I’m gonna praise you

Been through the fire and the rain
Bound in every kind of way
But God has broken every chain
So let me go right now

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you
I just wanna praise you
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
And I’m gonna praise you
I’m gonna praise you
[repeat x3]

Take them off
What’cha gonna do, yeah

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you
I just wanna praise you
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
And I’m gonna praise you
I’m gonna praise you

Prophesy

Proverbs 28:12 Proverbs 29:2

I was pulled out of bed this morning, groaning, the seduction of sleep heavy like a blanket, heavy, was dragged to meditation with my eyes on fire like amethyst in a volcano, like the eyes of the wolf in the dark….

What is Prophesy, Africa?

The mpesa number at the bottom of your screen, the seeding of a prayer, the anointing morning water sold at the alter, anoint! Anoint the blessings into your life at a dollar per bottle, present yourself as the harvester and take what is yours, God is here, your abundance is here, take three at half price and claim your full measure! – there is something terribly wrong, and we have been overcome.

What is Prophesy, America?

“When the righteous triumph, there is great elation; but when the wicked rise to power, men go into hiding.”

“When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.

And so men take cover – and the people groan.

Rhumba

Gentleness is a fertilizer, a
Rhumba,

Swaying wheat,
Balanced corn,

In a field,
Caressed by rain, it is

Kindness
To yourself,

Ploughing, when the harrow is ready,
And sweating,

Gentleness,

Glistening off chests, is
The masculine scent of forgiveness,

The feminine of,
Breaking ground,

Gentleman or Boer, order

In the house,
Order!

Give in.

Hippie

Envy,

In a bright blue dress,
Sways down the street, turning

The doll the child is holding,
Into trash.

The green plaid skirt –
Burberry,

Is useless in the wake of this drunk apparition.

And you deserve more,

Faster.

Stress, the suave gentleman in a red suit and orange,
Glinting cuff-links,

Plots his move.

Anger gathers dust around the
Isolated little girl, gathers

Whisper and,
Rumour,

Sets them chattering; I
Deserve better, I

Don’t see why I,
Cannot have that doll,

That she has, it’s,

Not fair to,
Make me wait,

In plain sight, of
It with the straight,

Hair,
That’s over there,

With her,

Demon!

I will find my hardy flip flops and search you out!
Have a flower.
