    Gold Hope, and Cape Tales

    Autumn Decay with Gold Leaf Dust
    Settling like the Dutch on her Pedestal shore. In the Magnificent days.
    The Holy Alter Of Table Flat Rock.
    A land with veins of yellow blood.
    The food for the goods of below.
    Gold, diamonds and marrow.
    Weavers, angelic Sparrows.
    A fine line between destruction,
    Beauty, lives, and duty.
    To honor red,
    Instead of Gold.
    To Pair it with Green.
    Watered from a well.
    Green and gold.
    Spring books,
    And
    The Veldt.
    The new world only saw white light.
    Not gifted with mineral restraint.
    If it was shiny and white.
    The felt safe from the shadows.
    Crows, black plagues and
    Indian Arrows.
    If it shined like their first born sun.
    They would thirst red,
    White and blue sky hues.

    Gold Rose For Those Few

    Grace

    Scales did fall as lightening from the sky,
    accompanied by whispers of the night.
    A visit innocently insinuated,
    but of the fascinating ambience of galaxy,
    blessed is the man, gifted a seat of honor.

    A seat of honor, for the penitent heart.
    grace and mercy, faith and no doubt.
    the moon did speak, a tale of freedom; the liberty of a bird.
    blessed is the keeper, above the casual hearer.

    A precious gift,
    something to remember one with.
    From the esteem of a graceful mind.
    Tell the tales but of fine feet.
    Blessed is a friend, who didn't suffer alone to abide.

    Mistakes mature birth beauty
    Romans 3:23
    for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God


    If we don't know the written word
    It will cost us alot!
    Many mistakes, that could be prevented
    through out our whole written life

    Tree mistakes I did
    I believed in the WORD
    but didn't made it mine OWN
    Vey important to build on rock in one's youth!
    Why, it will give one wings in old age to stand firm

    I "thought" to become saved was really hard
    Couldn't see anything, for life around me, spoke harder
    While it honestly didn't feel if anything happened differently when one tried
    I was only, ten, and had a two year stuggle with the living God
    But at the age of twelve, the Holy Spirit "Himself"
    lifted me from my life's bench
    I even tried
    to stay seated, what a joke, one can't fight God
    while I took a firm hold of the church bench
    But "free will" could no longer hold me back
    For it's not by power ur might
    but by His Spirit alone
    Praise God!!!

    3 Commen mistakes I had to put inline with the written word
    O dear me, never was it done over night,
    but the Holy Spirit does lead one gently into all victories!
    Praise the living God!

    1)The thoughts (mind)
    2)The tongue (the pen)
    3)The heart (the cabinet of life issues)

    All three must be in line with the written word
    To know is to grow ...
    How will you grow if you don't read?
    God's Word the seed
    we plant
    in our heart
    when we read ...

    I also made tons of mistakes to stop reading the word ur pray
    when things didn't go my way, ur seems exstreamly difficult ur hard,
    back then ... sometimes I was just plain lazy to be quite honest !
    I was immature ...I rebelled againt God!
    But I grow up
    The written word and daily prayer life, now
    a mighty tool!
    Glory to be to God, alone!!!

    Hosea 4:6

    My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:
    because thou hast rejected knowledge,
    I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me:
    seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God,
    I will also forget thy children

    I was such a fleshly fool for letting "in" what I only think and saw
    to rule mine heart, to be Stonger than what I believe
    But faith comes by hearing,
    and by hearing the word of God!

    Trying to fit a BIG LIVING GOD
    into mine own ways of UNDERstanding, oh so hard!
    I had to let go of mine own UNDERstanding to know
    how BIG GOD was, now life is easy!

    The bible will be just a story book
    if we don't apply what we read
    The bible is really alive,
    once the Holy Spirit lead us!
    "Faith" and "works" go hand in hand!

    Life a journey from being immature
    learning to grow,
    in all God wanted me to know
    To become in Christ, all mature
    Spiritual principles a feast, now!
    Following mine own ways led to mine own misery
    I even thought
    God could use so many other,
    I believe they were more capable than me!
    But God wanted obedients and an empty vessel!
    God'll used a donkey, I like to think it's to show how stubborn we can be, at times!

    The righteous may fall seven times
    but still they'll stand up ..
    bold and tall
    Never have I ever saw
    Grace left a righteous man's hand!

    If I had never fail ur fall
    I would have never grew up
    STAND UP
    to mature in the wisdom given by God!

    *The mind: NOT inline with God's Word,
    Still " a free will" in mine life, cost me alot!

    *The tongue, never could keep secrets, always spills the "inner thoughts"
    (Life and death in our tongue, I was young but had to learn to eat the fruit of mine own words)
    If you can't speak ur be silent out of love, we are most probably not in God's will ...
    Any thing spoken ur not spoken, not with the pure heart motive to build UP is not of God!
    The heart can be so deceitful!

    *The Heart harbours all the issues of live, with a mind loose and a tongue running wild, I grew up!
    Many mistakes, many lessons, but grace never fails a believing heart!

    But mine greatest mistake, mine biggest sin ever!
    Mine greatest lesson, became mine greatest thruimph ever!
    a devilish trap of dreadful pride
    I became so angry with religious people,
    People " not unknown " to me,
    at all, those throwing daily stones and spoke evil about others
    Saying they are God's children while they gossips about others!
    (James 4:11 Speak not evil one of another, brethren)
    Some folks always remembering the worst about everyone
    without acknowledging their own faults!
    I sinned, for pride let me become just like them!
    Oh the shame, when you know you have failed the Most High God!
    Oh how it pierched mine heart!
    Truth had cut deep into mine heart
    While the devil tried to rip mine heart out!
    Wisdom opens the eyes of the heart,
    uncover your own pride hiding in the corner of the heart,
    His Spirit reveals everything!
    God knows everything!
    Those unknown "pride" you harbour in your own heart !
    Did I though, I was even better than them?
    Oh how evil that sounds! Oh so shameful!
    Suddenly you know ...
    Why Moses couldn't enter the promise land?
    Sin is sin!
    No big ur small
    We all make mistakes, we all sin!
    The truth ...I have sin before and against the living God!
    2007 mine greatest lesson!
    I needed to repent and mend my way
    With only His perfect ways!
    But the truth, God's love never stop
    His grace, mercy and peace was raining down on me.
    God is love
    Love never leaves, amen

    Psalm 51:7
    Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
    Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

    Thank You, Lord for looking to me like being Your own loving son
    Draped in snow white under His faithful garment dippen in righteous blood
    Covering mine daily walk and erasing mine remorful mistakes
    Nothing I could ever "do" ur "work" for
    Grace found mine heart's address
    Never to be the same ... never can mistakes rule,
    where God has forgiven all repented mistakes!
    How great is our God!
    God is love!!!

    1 JOHN 3:20
    KJ21
    For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart and knoweth all things.
    Thank You, Lord
    Amen

    The reason why God wants our spirits so strong in him is because if he had to come down right now would there be more spirit or flesh to take up with him
    Our flesh will burn but our spirit lasts forever

    PRAISE HIM

    ¹HIS GRACE FOUND OF NO ONE ELSE,
    ²A FAITH FOUND THAT NEVER MELTS
    ³FORGIVENESS HE GIVES OF ALL,
    ⁴AND DESIRES FOR US NOT TO FALL.

    ⁵MOMENTS OF PAST, WE HEARD HIS WORD,
    ⁶PROMISE OF HIM, THAT WE'RE CHOSEN YET CALLED,
    ⁷TO CONTINUE IS TO LIVE AND TO ENJOY OUR BREATH,
    ⁸YET TO OPPOSE IS FALSE TRIUMPH BUT TO FACE DEATH.

    ⁹PRIVILEGED TO BE ONCE CALLED NOW CHOSEN,
    ¹⁰WAS GIVEN ALSO TO YOU BUT WAS BROKEN,
    ¹¹BROKEN OUT OF HIS WILL BUT OF ¹²YOUR DESIRES,
    DESIRES OF WHICH LEAD HIS GRACE SUDDEN EXPIRES.

    ¹³OUGHT MIGHT ARE WE NOT TO LIVE AS PERFECT AS HE,
    ¹⁴YET IS RATHER TO SERVE DESPITE ¹⁵OUR DARK PAST AND BE FREE,
    HE WHOM GIVEN US ALL HIS BRIGHTEST EQUITY,
    ¹⁶BUT WAS A PRIVILEGED NOT AN OPPORTUNITY.

    Hush of silence

    Stillness and quiet used to stir unsettled feelings inside
    Forcing me to run for cover and hide
    Within chaos, drama and the need to fix others
    Now I welcome the calmness and soothing vibes as they buffer
    Held in faith, I trust the peace, no desire to change or fuss
    Like a flower blooms, it's petals unfurling towards the Sun
    Reaching a depth within my soul, beautiful silence, embracing the oneness
    Grateful for the moments I spend grounded in this place
    No longer afraid, turning fear into love's forever giving grace
    Perspective shifted, a knowing smile replaces frustration
    Returning refreshed, reborn and ready to take on the world

    Speak to Him, He hears

    Gloom you out of darkness into His Light

    I am reminded of the lyrics from the song
    Amazing Grace
    . "I once was lost but now am found, was blind but now I see."

    The Lord is the light to the world, shining brightly in the darkness.

    Open your eyes and bask in His grace and glory.

    Let your heart beat for God
    For He found your heart comfortable than ever dwelling place
    Amen!

    Gratitude

    Gratitude allows me to be thankful for all the miracles in my life
    It also allows me to be thankful for the ones yet to come
    as well as teaches me that just because I do not see it , doesn't mean the actualization of the dream or goal isn't already in process
    It reminds me to have faith,
    trusting that all that I dream and work towards I can achieve despite the challenges that may come ,
    and that every point has a miracle waiting to happen even if all happens to seem dark ,
    I just have to trust and open my eyes to the beauty of the moment......

    Only your wrath, I am if you let.

    Only your cause, You show in all.
    Confounding path, Eyes Damned if blue yet
    Taken more falls, Bestowed sin fall.
    Stripped to piece's, I'd prayed she'd be.
    Your will still seen time as sand.
    Forgotten self, without her I plead.
    The Art of War thyne has planned.
    I'll gotten gains, revealed were appeased.
    We start not for but his hand.
    Kill rotten tree's torn roots on our knees.
    Serve Part fought so fine to soon stand.
    New eternal bonds, eyes cloven with fear.
    Such sadness, such pain, blessed for all I hear.
    Graced infernal fond, cries chosen that tear.
    Much madness much rain, Thy Morning Star my Dear.
    All that you'd allow. Letting us know how.
    Every breath in her, a breath in me.
    Still flat take a bow, For thy King we knew.
    For Opeth in her, Opeth in me.
    Under skies the same, I howl and Starz I gaze.
    One denies with shame, a fowl you dropped to phase.
    Relentless as a Moon, who waits to tell the sun.
    You Exalt & Rise above the Highest High.
    She your grace so blessed,
    Now these eyes you've shown.
    Through you sought man's prize,
    No dove that flyest try.
    We nor face, confessed. How my cries you've grown.

    GRACE

    I call it grace,
    when you awaken to a flush of beaming light,
    in this black country of dark luck,
    empty gourds of hollow nature.

    I call it grace,
    to embark on an innocent journey of survival,
    and return safe, unaccosted by bandits of pastural calling.
    Slaughterings of pathetic normalcy.

    I call it grace,
    to elect the right heart into everlasting power.
    On the throne of an heedless tyrant, disgrace seats, like an undiscerning kite in the mighty clouds of kingship.
    Blaze!

    I call it grace,
    rice and beans and cassava may pass away, the Kilimanjaro cost of living.
    I've heard of angry birds, I now daily witness hungry angry birds.

    I call it grace,
    to the knowledge of Christ's death,
    my mankind found a rare kind of peace.
    Stretch out your humble hands now,
    I can smell it .....grace.
