Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but Words will never kill me.

Are the plates people put on your shelves
They pile up like used Cosmopolitan  magazines
They are the labels people stick on your box
Whenever you peel one off, another shines through
For your box is layered with labels
Almost as layered as your face caked with makeup
The labels make-up who you’ve become
When your box is covered in another layer of labels, another layer of makeup is applied to your face . It’s the shield you use for protection.
It’s the shield that stops people from cutting their hands on your broken heart

A cake is who you are now
You cover yourself in layers of icing, hoping people will taste only the sweet and not the bitterness that reproduces inside of you
Your shelves are growing weak
Your arms are growing limp
Limp from carrying piles of plates
Plates that you wish someone could come take
Take, and break

People call you by your past, but God calls you by your name.
People can put labels on you all day long. But people putting a label on your box, does not change what’s inside of it.
God does not define us by our past, he sees the person he created in the beginning. He see’s our whole potential.
Don’t be tied down to labels and chains people put on you. If you’re tied down to them, you’ll never be able to reach the place you were destined to go.

Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He brought them out of darkness, the utter darkness, and broke away their chains.
Psalm 107:13-14

Money doesn’t grow on trees.

God sustains you in everything you do:

From the food you eat,
to the water you drink,
to the glass that contains the water,
and to your circle glass plate.

From the clothes on your back,
to the shoes on your feet,
to the stuffing of your pillow,
and to your cotton sheets.

From the oil in your car,
to the tyres and wheels,
to the gear stick in your hand,
and to your windshield.

From the desk in your room,
to the chair you sit on,
to the pen that you hold,
and the paper you write on.

From the money in your hand,
to the leather of your wallet,
to it’s metal zip,
and the coin in your pocket.

From the breath in your lungs,
to the pulse in your heart,
without the LORD you would never start.

From glass to oil, from wood to paper,
from plastic to cotton, from silk to rubber.
Nothing would be here if it wasn’t for God,
No chemicals, No medicine, it’ll ALL be gone.

EVERYTHING, that man has invented,
it came from God,
it was created and planted.
Just look around you,
open your eyes and see,
the money you so crave is God’s tree.

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.
Isaiah 40:28

It’s complicated.

We are just like a Rubik’s cube, we are born with all our colours perfectly aligned. But as we begin to grow, our exposure to abuse and maltreatment increases. A row of our colours start to shift to the wrong place. As people begin to mistreat and mishandle us, little by little, our colours become a scrambled mess. So much so that our original pattern is unidentifiable. We begin to believe the lie that we were born that way.

When you accept Jesus as your Lord and living saviour, God begins to slowly unscramble you. It doesn’t matter how messed up you are, who hurt you, or who abandoned you. It may take a little while longer, but God will straighten out EVERY lie, He’ll heal EVERY wound, and break EVERY chain that’s holding you back in Jesus’ name.

There are so many different sides to you, that are unknown. You may look in the mirror and see a scrambled mess and feel a loss of identity and purpose, because your cube has been messed with. But God has the algorithm to reverse Every wrong that has been done to you.


All of the earth is waiting for the sons and daughters to ARISE. Everything on this earth is waiting for you to STAND up and STEP into your purpose.

I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Psalm 139:14

For all of creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.
Romans 8:19


Let There Be Light.

A light bulb is an electric light. It’s a glass bulb containing a wire filament. Electric current is passed through the filament when it is heated. When the filament is heated the bulb glows with light.

When you don’t know God you are a lightbulb that is switched off. You have not yet stepped into you’re intended purpose which is to shine for God’s glory. When you accept Jesus as Lord, an electric current is passed through you. You are now filled with the Holy Spirit, light bulbs start to switch on all around you. Because of this heat and electric current within you, the Holy Spirit, your light bulb can now shine.

Don’t remain a light bulb that is switched off. Instead, be all who God created you to be and let your light shine.

You are the light of this world
Mathew 5:14

Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Mathew 5:16


Let the Rain, Reign.

Gods eyes swell, like a swollen rain cloud .
His head droops, for He is not proud.
Heavy is His heart,
teary are the skies.
Heavy are the clouds,
watery are His eyes.
His eyes sting with pain,
as clouds fill with rain.
He cries hailstones,
as your heart towards Him remains cold.
His clouds burst, as He pours out His hurt.
When will you Thirst,
for His Reign.
An ocean is God’s love for you,
immerse yourself in His grace.
Pour out your whole heart,
seek out His whole face.
Let the water drench your soul,
let the water quench your thirst.
Let the Holy Spirit Reign,
let it free you from your shame.
Let the Holy Spirit fall on you,
let it open your eyes so you can see.
The sea that is God’s love for us, it’s name is called Mer-cy.
Let it pour into you like a flood,
as heaven opens from above.
Let it flow like river,
let it ripple and quiver.
Take off your rain coat,
and get out of the boat.
Run and get your wellies,
cos God is so good, so swell-He’s
Everything and then some.
Step outside and sing.
Let your walls fall down,
let the Rain, Reign.

“The LORD shall reign forever and ever.”
Exodus 15:18

Without a Shadow of a Doubt.

A shadow is produced when  an object comes between a light source and a surface.
When you accept Jesus Christ as Lord, his light shines so bright, that all your pain, suffering, and dark days are behind you.

But some people are in the shadow of God’s light.
They only experience God’s light through someone else, not realising that it’s not the real thing. But God wants you step out of other people’s Shadows, and step into his light. He wants to give you first hand experience of his love. He wants you to look towards him and into his word, not just other people alone.
Don’t stay in the shadow of God’s  light, step into the fullness of his light, allowing it to hit you.

His radiance is like the sunlight; He has rays flashing from His hand, And there is the hiding of His power
Habakkuk 3:4 .
But if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin
John 1:7 .


Keys to the Kingdom.

The word of God is like piano keys. If you don’t press down hard enough on the keys, you’ll never hear the sound it makes. When you hit a key, it causes the strings inside the piano to vibrate.
You can’t listen to one note in isolation, instead a variety of notes need to be played for you to hear the song that’s being played.
The more time you spend practising the piano, the more colourful and vibrant the song.

To understand God’s word, you can’t just read verses in isolation. You have to spend time daily reading scripture for the message and song to come alive. When you press into and read God’s word, strings start to vibrate.

And when the song starts playing, that’s when you start dancing.

“I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.”
Mathew 16:19



Lukewarm Christianity.

The body of Christ is like a body of water. It could either be flowing, or stagnant.

Stagnant water is water that is restricted to a particular space, and is still and lifeless.
It’s dead, motionless, stationary, limp, and doesn’t flow. Because of its stationary position, it gives off displeasing stench.
If you’re a comfortable Christian, restricted to routine, ways of thinking, or people’s opinions of you. You are static dull and flat, or stuck in fear.

If you’re flowing water it means you are smooth, graceful, and moving without a change in direction. It also means you are receiving an influx of water. When you’re flowing water it means you are hearing from God, and God is providing a current in which you can flow.
Don’t be a stagnant pond that gives off a displeasing smell to God. Instead, get rid of distractions in your life, and get close to God so you can be connected to his current, allowing you to flow.

So, because you are lukewarm–neither hot nor cold–I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
Revelation 3:16

Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
Mathew 7:21

Lethally lonely.

The storm is back again
The rain pierces and trickles down my heart
Wish the wind would just take me away
I just want to depart
I’m drowning in a sea of people, and none of them will pull me up
I’m tripping over curbs
Why won’t anyone stop
After hours of treading, I just don’t have strength anymore
I’m tired, exhausted, and my soul is growing sore
Sore are my eyes from crying
They sting as if with chlorine in them
No point in washing them out, only to start weeping again
Loneliness is my best friend
Silence is my sister
Isolation is kin to me
Abandonment is my mister
The only thing to comfort me is the pitter pattering my head makes like the sounding of a drum
It pokes and punches my temples
Like a foetus twisting around
It’s the only music I dance to
The only radio thats turned on
It’s monotonous and repetitive
The only tune thats sung

God sets the lonely in families, he leads out the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.
Psalm 68:6
