The Real Cost of DIY (Do -It- Yourself)

Do not help God

He is more than able

Do not try and do it yourself

As he is more than capable

The works of the flesh end up in futility

You might end with something or somebody

That makes the taste of victory feel like bitter ashes in your mouth

If peace is absent and fear follows your every waking moment

Counting the seconds till the phone call, the letter in the post or the knock on the door

DIY jobs are too much hard work

When God gives you something it doesnt give you sleepless nights, racing heartbeats or lack of appetite

There is no striving, confusion and drama

Leave DIY to the proffessionals on TV

Dont try it with your life

Dont end up realising

that after all it wasnt really worth the price of your destiny

A Mothers Tears

A Mothers Tears are

Falling Fast and clear for another child so dear

Joining the long list of those whose lives have been lost

So senselessly

Politicians beat the same drum of the same song

A tribal beat fanned by religious bias to whip up sentiment, hatred and intolerance

Till it sees no reason

Seeks to kill, maim and tear down

Where we all so badly need to build

There is no point to dry her eyes

She has lost too many to stop crying

Feet that stood to attention and saluted a new flag and a New Hope

Now run away to hide from those who are meant to uphold the law

She takes her wrapper of Green White and Green

and covers the faces of the latest casualities

One Day

One day

A man

A Priest

Provider

Friend

Confidante

Best Friend

Encourager

Good listener

Protector

Who has the Father’s Heart and

Loves God

Loves Gods People

Loves All Gods People

Who loves and values you as a Princess of the Lord Most High

will ask you to marry him

What will you say?

Will you need to pray and pray?

See his bank balance or Passport?

A Better Story

Where they have discounted

They will value and esteem

Where they have said No! Never!

They will come back and say – Yes! Of course. We all knew that it would happen one day.

Where they have put down

They will elevate

Where they have deserted

They will rush to reacquaint themselves

Where they have pretended not to see you in your pain

In your turning they will come to you and say – didnt you see me.  I was saying hello!

Where they have laughed in derision

They will open that same mouth in amazement at what God can do

and celebrate your victory and Gods faithfulness.

Dangerous DIY

Do not help God

He is more than able

Do not try and do it yourself

As he is more than capable

The works of the flesh end up in futility

You might end with something or somebody

That makes the taste of victory feel like bitter ashes in your mouth

If peace is absent and fear follows your every waking moment

Counting the seconds till the phone call, the letter in the post or the knock on the door

DIY jobs are too much hard work

When God gives you something it doesnt give you sleepless nights, racing heartbeats or lack of appetite

Questions

Silence

God answers questions with Silence

Silence

Could mean NO

Could mean YES

Could mean WAIT

Could mean GO AHEAD

Questions and more questions

Chasing themselves around in my head

I will take my questions to the feet of the cross

Leave them there

Joined by my burdens and all of my cares…..

I will hold onto to his pierced feet and never let go

Let Him heal me with His crimson flow

He is the shoulder I can cry on

Always dependable, tender and caring

Help me to trust you every day

What can I do but trust and obey.

He will answer all my questions in His own way.
