I wonder...

If i were to be someone else looking into my life, would i be proud of the person that i am? they say the true measure of a man is what he would do if he knew he would never get caught, its in what he does behind closed doors, all alone... and only God and the individual really know what happens... so would i be proud of what i do when i am alone if i were to look into my life from the eyes of someone else? would i even do what i do behind closed doors if i knew someone else could see me??

if my thoughts could be amplified for the whole world to hear, would i be proud of me? would i want the whole world to really know what i think and what i say to myself? would this world still be the same place if everyone could tell what the next person was thinking? i think not...

why then do we go around saying things that are not a true reflection of our thoughts, why then do we do things that we do not want the rest of the world to see and know about? after all it is written that on Judgement Day, everything that happened in secret shall be revealed... why then do we keep secrets if they are going to be revealed in the end?

well i guess everything has its repercussions and if people were brutally honest, there would be other issues to deal with! but wouldn't it be better? wouldn't that take away a lot of the conflict and love-hate relationships that are a result of people not being honest to each other?

so how do we get past all the dishonesty and two-facedness that is all around? i really wonder and i guess i will wonder for a long time, but i guess what really matters and what we should all understand and remember is that one day, one fine day everything shall be revealed...

Don't give up on me yet...

I am not the wisest of all mankind
Neither am i the c;everest
But all i know is that i am trying my best to be the best version of me
So please, don't give up on me yet.

I am trying as hard as i can!
I am faced with challenges along the way
But all i know is that i am trying my best to overcome them
So please, don't give up on me yet.

I don't know what the future holds
Or what i will face in tomorrow
But all i know is that i will try my best not to let you down
So please, don't give up on me yet.

Best believe...

I really thought this week was gonna be the most hectic week of my academic life, and i had pronounced it the worst week of my UCT life... but i guess life has a way of sorting itself out! well its still the most hectic week of my academic life, but it is not a bad week at all... so much good has happened in the last 12 hours, i could live on the high from these incidences for the rest of the week!!

guess dreams do come true at some point and what we hope and wish for comes through and it happens at an appointed time! i think all the things that have happened in the past 12 hours have happened now for a specific reason! if these things had happened last week or the week before, i wouldn't have appreciated them the way i appreciate them right now! but because i am going through a hectic time, the simplest things have happened and they have taken me from the depths of misery to the heights of pure happiness!

i now truly believe that things happens for a reason and they happen when they are meant to... no matter how hard we try and wish for things to happen in our own time, our Father in heaven knows why he does not grant these things in our time, but in His own time... so best believe that God has got your back and He knows what he's planning for you, and he surely knows when these things are to happen... so when things dont seem to be going your way, or when the future looks really dark, hang tight, it will all come together in the end!

i still have a hectic week, i still have lots to do, but i'm gonna do it with a happy smile and not the gloomy frown i've had for the past two days

so hang tight, sunshine is coming!! Best believe...

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
For we know in part and we prophesy in part.
But when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.
Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

The simplest things

All the simple things that are the most important things in life are right before my eyes. All i have to do is open my eyes and take the time to absorb and consider that i really do have everything i need and everything i will ever need, but not necessarily everything i want.

Happiness lies in the simplest things and it is only in realising this that i will find true happiness! It's in listening to that quiet voice deep withing, its in smiling at the next person, it's in dancing to that song in my heart, it's in loving unconditionally, it's in singing my favorite song, it's in sharing what i have, it's in listening to the people around me, it's in working to the best of my ability, it's in living my life in the best way that i can... it's in all these things that i find happiness, and at the end, when i look back on my life, i will smile and say i did my best. Whatever the outcome, at least i tried!

and so i will sing, dance, smile, live, laugh, love, share, give, work, pray and be the best version of me that i can be nomatter what the circumstances, so help me God...

Flee from sexual immorality...

as young people living in today's world, i think we have done so many things to justify the things we do as not sinning and we've sugar-coated our deeds to make them seem as though they are ok and not something wrong in God's eyes. for a long time i have been thinking of the scripture that says 'flee from sexual immorality' and i've been wondering what it really means. so i did some research and got a few view on the matter...

Hebrews 13 says 'marriage should be honoured by all and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. and then the Bible goes on to tell us how to avoid the sin of sexual immorality:

1 Corinthians 7:1-2 says 'Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. 2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband'

So does this then mean that if a man wants to TOUCH a woman, he should marry her? and therefore any of this touching that happens outside of marriage is sexual immorality??

We say as youth of today that as long as there is no intercourse its not sexual immorality, but that which we do is supposed to lead up to the act right? so why start a journey and stop? and who knows, maybe one day some will start that journey and find that they cannot stop. so is not the best way to stay pure before marriage therefore not to touch at all??

Personally, i think i agree with this, but so many times people then say what is the point of the relationship if nothing physical is going to happen? who says anything physical should happen? then there are those that say we know our limits, we have our boundaries and know what we are doing? Really??

But why do we even think of these things and act on them? the media has a huge role to play and what we see with our eyes and hear with our ears stimulates a lot of things. Pornographic movies and magazines are readily available. some things are not explicitly pornographic but can still be classified as it. soft porn or even sexual acts in cartoons stimulate the mind and what we take in is what comes out.

So how then do we stay pure as young Christians of today? Lust in itself is a sin, just looking at someone lustfully is wrong. how do we stay pure in a world gone wrong? in a world where values have been twisted and turned to suit our own human desires and whose meanings have been distorted? HOW??

I'm a believer

I believe in love

Love reveals just who we are
But in our fear,
We may lose out on a star
Love brings us closer while fear tears us apart
Love sets us free but our fear will keep us froze

I am a believer

Love, love heals while fear brings on disease
Love opens up while fear closes us in
Love breeds the courage,
to do the things that we once feared
Though we feel the fear,
still we move right on in love

I am a believer

Believing with all my heart,
my mind and all my actions
I am a believer
Believing with all my heart
my mind and all my actions

Soul in mind

I am a child born of love
So let love remain in my heart and my mind
Let love and joy be my friend
Give me peace with no end
Let me live with no fear and no shame
Let me begin to see love come alive in my life
Let me feel how it feels to be me

A longing and pounding in my heart
Led me to want so much more out of life
Led me to forgive every hurt
To let go of the past
And allow myself to heal every pain
Now I am free
Yes, I hold my head up high
The burden on my shoulder is no longer with me
Now I can breathe
Yes, I feel so much at ease
My soul is alright with me

Soul in mind, soul in mind
A prayer for my soul in mind
Let love enjoy being my friend
Give me peace with no end
Let me live with no fear
I don't want to fear
Let me begin to see love come alive in my life
Let me feel how it feels to have joy
Let me be free from disease
Let my heart feel at ease
Let me feel how it feels to be free

I want it all, i want it all
Guess i gotta have it all
I wanna be loved
Soul in mind, soul in mind
A prayer for my soul in mind
