Word.

Came across and article and this is what it is:

And that is scaring the hell out of us. If at 25, you are still slogging it out in a 9-to-6 job, you feel worthless. All your friends are getting married and posting pictures of their honeymoon to New Zealand or some exotic destination you can’t even afford to think of in the next 2 years. Time is running out; the world is running past you and you…you find yourself struggling to even get up from bed

Relax. Take a deep breath. Don’t compare yourself with others. The world is full of all kinds of people – those who get successful early in life and those who do later. There are those who get married at 25 but divorced at 30, and there are also those who find love at 40, never to part with them again. Henry Ford was 45 when he designed his revolutionary Model T car. A simple WhatsApp forward message makes so much sense here:

“You are unique, don't compare yourself to others.
Someone graduated at the age of 22, yet waited 5 years before securing a good job; and there is another who graduated at 27 and secured employment immediately!
Someone became CEO at 25 and died at 50 while another became a CEO at 50 and lived to 90 years.
Everyone works based on their 'Time Zone'. People can have things worked out only according to their pace.
Work in your “time zone”. Your Colleagues, friends, younger ones might "seem" to go ahead of you. May be some might "seem" behind you. Everyone is in this world running their own race on their own lane in their own time. God has a different plan for everybody. Time is the difference.
Obama retires at 55, Trump resumes at 70. Don't envy them or mock them, it's their 'Time Zone.' You are in yours!” 
Early success doesn’t mean a happy life. You could open a company at 25, you could also go bankrupt at 30 if the company dissolves. You could find success at 40, and perhaps you’d be more well-equipped to handle it then. Whatever happens, happens for a reason. 

Maybe that lost job was not right for you. Maybe you are meant to hone your skills for something great later. There is no right time. We get things when we are ready for them. When it doesn’t happen for you, it means it’s not supposed to happen right now. No point worrying yourself sick and envying another.  
Spend your time polishing your personality, acquiring new skills, learning a new language – create the person you want to be in future. Create the personality that will match your success. Work towards your goal at your own pace. Everybody has their own timeline. What if you are meant to do something worthwhile in some years when you are older and wiser, but you were too busy feeling bad about yourself and drowning your woes in alcohol. Imagine the regret. 
Opportunities never cease to come. If today is not your day, it could be tomorrow. Don’t stop living your life just because it isn’t happening.

What a read.

As it is (In Heaven)

Whether now or then
Death is not my end
I know heaven waits for me
Though the road seems long
I’ll never walk alone
I’ve got all I need to sing
I know You love me
I know You found me
I know You saved me
And Your grace will never fail me
And while I’m waiting
I’m not waiting
I know heaven lives in me
Should I suffer long
This is not my home
I know heaven waits for me
Though the night is dark
Heaven owns my heart
I’ve got all I need to sing
So I will sing like I will there
In the fearless light of glory
Where the darkness cannot find me
And Your face is all I see
I will sing like a man
With no sickness in my body
Like no prison walls can hold me
I will sing like I am free
I’ll sing holy holy
My heart cries holy
As it is in heaven
It is in me
We’ll sing holy holy
The earth cries holy
As it is in heaven
So let it be

Life.

Life can be such a dilemma sometimes.
It can be on a high for a moment, and then the next thing you know,
You're on ground zero. Rock bottom.
But I guess that's what makes life exciting too, yes?
It allows you to feel differently.
That's what emotions are all about aye?

I reckon.

Closer

So I come, come back to where I belong
Home in your presence into your arms
Father to you I come.
Pour out my worship my love
My heart surrendered I'm overcome
I'm sinking deeper into your love.

Crowns

My wealth is in the cross, there's nothing more i want
Than just to know His love, My heart is set on Christ
And i will count all else as lost
The greatest of my crowns, mean nothing to me now
For i counted up the cost and all my wealth is in the cross.

King Of All Days

I'm found in the arms of love
For your love it has saved my soul
I'll run to your arms of love
Your light's gonna lead me home.

Learn.

Everyday's an opportunity for us to learn something, because there'll definitely be someone that we can learn from. Even in the workplace, when you feel like you know it all, thats the beginning of your downfall.

I've learnt and I am continuing to learn that even from people that you assist with at work, at church, at other areas of life, you can still learn something from them.

And I'm so glad I get to do so. So all those of you who probably will never see this... Thank you.

You have taught me more than you'll ever know. And I'm grateful. :)

Even when it hurts.


Even when the fight seems lost
I'll praise you
Even when it hurts like hell
I'll praise you
Even when it makes no sense to sing
Louder then I'll sing your praise

Feels.

Steven Furtick - Chain Reaction

Your perspective is a result of your connection. Your connection with the heavens that our God lives. If your perspective is connected to your pain, you lose your praise. But if your perspective is connected to your purpose, you'll be able to say, even if I'm stripped, even if I'm beaten, you can still say ALL things work together for good for those who love God.

Praise is not a feeling in my life. Praise is my way of life. In fact, Praise is my decision. I choose to believe that I will see the goodness of the Lord.

Midweek


This is no performance, Lord I pray it's worship. 
Empty words, I can't afford. 
I'm not chasing feelings, that's not why I'm singing. 
You're the reason for my song. 

--

Sometimes, all that really really matters is not what the world thinks about you. It's not even what your peers or your friends or even your family thinks about you. It's what GOD thinks about you. That's the difference maker. 

And He thinks well of you. Always.

Amen.


Here's a sneak preview of a cover I did. Dry Bones.

When the fight calls

I won't let the storm weather my heart
Won't let the darkness beat me down
Sing in the night my hope alive in You
I'll walk through the fire and not be burned
Pray in the fight and watch it turn
Jesus tonight I give it all to You
