Who Are You, Lord?


False images, the vanity of Your name
That which rule and reign,
My thoughts…
My knowledge…

Who are You, LORD?

Show me where I can find the truth,
Teach me to look, listen and respond,
That I may behold Your beauty.
Show me Your ways and guide me,
That I may find You
‘cause I want to know You.

It’s not easy, sometimes I don’t understand…
Here I am Lord, waiting for You.
Show me Your love,
The beating of Your heart,
The warmth of Your embrace,
‘cause I want to know You.

Who are You, LORD?
I want to know You.

Beautiful People


Truly beautiful people like you
Are those who knows defeat,
suffering, struggles and loss
But they found their way out of it
by the grace of God’!

They have an appreciation,
a sensitivity
an understanding of life,
filling them with compassion,
gentleness and love.
They are NOT born that way,
They are formed that way
by the Potter’s loving hand!

Preserving The Unity of Love


Be always happy with your wife
The only one you married when you were young.
She is beautiful and graceful;
you should be attracted to her
staying deeply in love.

Do not ever allow worry and fear between you,
but speak words of truth and Compassion
for Worry is a heavy burden,
but a kind word always brings cheer.

Always answers her with words of love
especially when she ask “…do you love me”;
for giving the right word at the right time
is like precious gold set in silver making everyone happy.

Be always happy with your husband
The only one you married when you were young.
Let your love and loyalty for him
always show like a necklace,
writing them in your mind,
for love overlooks the wrongs that others do…

Remember, a woman who sells her love,
she can be bought for a little price,
so treasure your love for him,
for a simple life with love is better…
it beats a royal feast where there is hatred.

Always speak words of truth and Compassion
sharing in the love you have for one another…

Remembering the hopeful love HE bestowed upon you both,
the blessing of a future filled with hope and success.
When you worship HIM with all your heart,
Then also will HE never leave or forsake you…

In Die Hemel


Ek weet jy wonder soms hoekom dinge moet gebeur
En ek weet jy’t baie vrae en jou hart is baie seer
Ek weet my plek is leeg langs jou, ek sal altyd by jou wees
As jy na my verlang, onthou, ek is by jou in die gees
My tyd op aarde is verby
My lewe is afgemeet
En ek weet jy moet agterbly
Maar ek sal jou nooit vergeet

Ek is nou in die hemel
En ek wil nêrens anders wees nie
Want hier is ek gelukkig
Hier kry ek nooit meer seer nie
Ek is nou in die hemel
En my hart is daar by jou
Nou is ek die engel wat sy vlerke om jou hou

Ek sien jou trane elke dag, ek wens ek kon dit afdroog
Ek wil nie hê jy moet huil nie want kyk, ek is daar in die reënboog
Hier sal ek altyd wag vir jou, hier in ons hemelhuis
Ek hoop jy volg die regte pad, tot hier by die kruis

My tyd op aarde is verby
My lewe is afgemeet
En ek weet jy moet agterbly
Maar ek sal jou nooit vergeet

Ek is nou in die hemel
En ek wil nêrens anders wees nie
Want hier is ek gelukkig
Hier kry ek nooit meer seer nie
Ek is nou in die hemel
En my hart is daar by jou
Nou is ek die engel wat sy vlerke om jou hou

Altyd Daar


As ek vandag moet terugkyk op my lewenspad
Dan sien ek al die draaie, elke kronkelpad
Die spore van my lewe is lankal reeds bepaal
Elke tree vertel ‘n ou verhaal
Elke afdraaipaadjie sien ek duidelik raak
Maar deur dit alles Heer het U oor my gewaak
En oral in die donker het U my weer kom haal
Want U weet, elke kind kan soms verdwaal

Sonder dat ek weet het U my altyd vasgehou
En sonder dat ek weet het U genade my omvou
Al my lewensdrome het U in U hand bewaar
Liewe Heer, U was nog altyd daar

Ek sien dit in die stille waters van die see
Ek sien dit in ‘n kind se oë, sy eerste tree
Hoe kan die wat nie wil glo in ongeloof bly staar
Liewe Heer, want U was nog altyd daar

Sonder dat ek weet het U my altyd vasgehou
En sonder dat ek weet het U genade my omvou
Al my lewensdrome het U in U hand bewaar
Liewe Heer, U was nog altyd daar

Closer Than A Brother


God I am confused
There are so many things
Questions… Fears…
I do not know what to do with them
– Some days it’s just too much.

I know I had to bring it all to You
Casting all my cares unto you
I threw my hands in the air
“Take it Lord, all these questions and fears…”

Then I find myself pondering on it again
digging for an answer I know does not exist

… I remember the baby You gave me
a small helpless infant crying…
A responsibility I did not understand, nor want…
So, I ignored it out of fear and ignorance.

Some seven years had gone by when I found it again
still an infant – helpless… “Who is this?” I asked.
Then I knew… I picked up this child for the first time…
I knew I had to take care of this life.

It was then that I experienced overwhelming love
…the way I had to raise this child.
And You where there every step of the way with me
Your guiding hands of love where ever I went.

Lord God I receive your overwhelming love for me
You took me out of every way of destruction
You restored me then and You are doing it yet again…

To Know Him…


Slaughters, murder and death
Daily killing him and her
Will and ideas, goals and ambitions
Daily killing him and her

Is this how we start each day?
So destructive, so real…
Death, Life
Living sacrifice…

If we’d only knew…
Is this it? No way!!!
There is so much more
What would you say?

If we’d only knew!
He is so amazing. So …
If words could only tell…
If mortality could understand…

If we’d only knew!!
Sharing Him could be so…
Bright, Brilliant, Glorious
If words could only tell…

Glory and Power, Majesty and Strength

If we could have known!
Power and Glory, Restoration and Strength
Thus where are we going?
Eyes focussed on Him – glory to glory

He is so much more…
Ever enough time to Know Him?
If we had known, knowing Him…
Come, you have to come!

We have to know Him
Have to know Him more and more

We should start each day with a seeking after God…

 


 

God joined two people together.


Sitting down I was in another dimension, I witnessed a wedding where God joined two people together. I could hear a lot of shuffling noises as the witnesses paced across the hard floor to sit down. The prattle of voices were slicing the air shaping the atmosphere. Anticipation nagging excitement, ready to explode. The amplifier whispered a few notes and silence fell. All the witnesses were scuffing to their feet as the bride entered in. A peaceful silence that could not be put to words, followed.

The anointing was flowing in to the chapel, filling it. Then two images representing the lives of the bride and the bridegroom were visible just above each of them. The one image was the soft touch of green flourishing with beauty and the other brilliant white with strength. During the service these two images drifted closer and closer two each other until they touched.

Love pouring in with the anointing as the preacher laid down the Word. Then like stirring thick white and brown chocolate together the whole swirl of green and white was visible, slowly changing till only one colour was visible. You could at times see the two images, but you could see only one… This vast life, and it could be recognised as the bride from the one side and as the bridegroom from the other but still it was only one.

I know that life is a choice, and that commitment is a daily choice, acknowledging this by confessing the Word of life. That life may amplify Jesus. Every day must be a wedding where you and God become one in the place where He wants to use you. Shaping the perfect amplifier crying out “JESUS!!!”.


 

The Vision


I saw a battlefield – grey and dull , death hanging as far as the eye could see. Here and there you could see the remains of it all… piles of rocks and swords stuck into it, some lifeless bodies were scattered across the field and now I could smell the stale smell of death creeping upon me. To the left a carriage laid on its side – one wheel slowly turning, the only movement that could be seen. The horses looked flattened where they lay, still yoked to the carriage…

I walked a few steps forward and then saw a huge shield standing up straight stretching high into the dark skies – tilted to one side… I was drawn to it and the closer I got the bigger I saw it to be. I stopped right in front of the shield, awe struck by its appearance. It was still drawing me closer … I walked right up against it and then… I fell…

I fell right trough the shield… I was in “paradise” it seemed – the air was fresh and clean, the sky blue with white clouds drifting on the breeze… a river with crystal clear water flowed noisily and the banks were lush with grass. I looked up to the right and saw a mountain glowing in the distance – from where the river was flowing – and to the left was a desert and the river flowing into it. Life was exploding all around the river, as far as it flowed. My whole being feeling refreshed…

Drawn to the mountain, I started moving. As I draw closer the size of it grew. Then I saw a waterfall falling from the top of the mountain sparkling in the bright light all around me. I just kept going… higher and higher I climbed with the thundering of the waterfall in the background.

When I finally reached the top it was quiet. I looked back and saw only the desert – no river, no waterfall and no life.

Looking closer at my surroundings I saw that in the mountain had an enormous crater – it was so deep I could not see the bottom. Small fountains and mountain streams of water flowed into this great nothingness… then HE spoke.

“Those small fountains and streams are the preparation of your life that will have to fill this big abyss. Time spend with ME, reading the word, following the teachings and obeying MY commands. The whole is a representation of you that needs to be filled by everything I want to pour into your life. You will have to grow in this as the water slowly fills the abyss… the time will come when this water will overflow and a massive waterfall will flow from it into the desert exploding with life as far as the river will go… But, you are as empty as the hole in front of you, you have to wait for ME, for MY timing and release…”

 


 

Iemand Soos Hy


Die wonder:
hierdie harde wêreld waarin ons woon,
‘n mens word ook hard
ek weet al hoe baie ek daarteen moes stry
dan is daar mense soos hy
wat sommer alles in ‘n oogwink verander.

Soos ‘n Woestyn, woes en leeg, net sand waar jy kyk
en dan –
blomme en immergroen wat die dor, leë wêreld vul
orals waar hierdie mensie gaan
soos ‘n koel aand wind na ‘n lang warm dag.
Dan weet ek dat daar min mense so jonk hulle doel bereik…
