You'll Come


(Hosea 6)
Brooke Fraser, 2007

I have decided, I have resolved
To wait upon you Lord
My rock and redeemer, shield, and reward
I'll wait upon you Lord

As surely as the sun will rise
You'll come to us
As certain as the dawn appears

You'll come, let your glory fall
As you respond to us
Spirit Rain, flood into our thirsty hearts again
You'll come.

We are not shaken we are not moved
We wait upon you Lord
Mighty deliverer, triumph and truth
We wait upon you Lord

As surely as the sun will rise, you'll come to us
Certain as your word endures.

You'll come, let your glory fall
As you respond to us
Spirit Rain, flood into our thirsty hearts again
You'll come.

Chains be broken
Lives be healed
Eyes be opened
Christ is revealed

to He, that makes me...

This past weekend, I traveled to the town of my birth, to do, what i like best - Worship.

The Aflewo team held a similar night of worship as the one I'd written about in the post  Pazeni Sauti , in Nyeri Town, at Nyamachaki Church, a kilometer or so from the hospital of my birth. Exactly three decades later (overwhelmed!), here I was to say thank you for the person I've become, to He who made me and continues to make me.

One song expressed perfectly, my deep gratitude...a well know Kikuyu hymn;

Nii ningwenda, Ngai Umenyage
(I need you, Lord to know...)
Ningenaga muno niwe
(that I am repeatedly so happy in You...) ( hic!)
Tondu niunjikaga wega
(For, you are so good to me..)
Na ukanyenda hingo ciothe
(And You love me always...)

Irio ciakwa iria ndiaga
(the food I eat...)
Mai maria nyuaga
(the water i drink...)
O na nguo cia kwihumba
(even the clothes i wear...)
Ciothe nowe u heaga
(All these, its You who gives to me...)

Muoyo naguo nowe wa' heire
(My life, even it, its You who gave to me...)
Niwe u giragia ngue
(Its You, who keeps me alive)
Ungithengia hinya waku
(Should you withdraw your power....)
Ndingiikara gathaa kamwe
( I cannot survive a single hour...)

We muthenya o na utuku
(Lord (You), during the day and even at night...)
Niu menyagirira wega
(You protect me sufficiently...)
Maitho maku no mambaaraga
(Your eyes Lord, see everything...)
Kuri nduma kana utheri
(In darkness/ at night and in light/ in day...)

Ndigihota gukucokeria
( I am unable to reimburse/ express in humanly words,how grateful  i am)
Wega waku, Mwathani
(for your goodness, O Lord...)
No ndindakuhoya utumage
(But, this I pray, that You'd help me...)
Ngwende muno na nguiguage
(Love You more, and obey You...)

Amen.

Will I? Even When?

Took a few days off work to rest.....seems i take the time to do everything but rest....so Monday and Tuesday were set aside to rest. My choice watch for monday late night, was Donnie McClurkin's - Live in London concert....in it, is a special song that I love oh so...ever have, since its release....and it relates to my weekly devotion from James MacDonald, Life in the Word Ministries.

...extract ...

"At every crossroads of life you face a choice. "Will I trust God? Will I believe His Word? Will I have faith?"

More than likely, you're facing a decision today in which you see several ways you can go. One might be easier, but it's not calling you higher or to what you would think would please God. You say .."But it makes more sense for me to go this way...it would be the safest... or the most reasonable... or the best in my mind. I think I could make that way work out." But then God says, "No, go this way. This will be better in the long run. You'll be glad you went this way." 

"...It's always going to be better for you to follow the Lord, whatever the issue is. However logical or reasonable the other paths seem, consider what motivates your decision. The choice to obey the Lord in this situation is a decision of faith. First John 5:4 says, "And this is the victory that has overcome the world - our faith." Your faith is determined by your answers to: "Will I trust God even when...?" "Do I believe that His ways are best for me even when...?"

He Knows…I Know....I Know Not


I do not like this feeling…!!
It’s not that He has forgotten me…never so, I just feel like He is taking too long for my own liking.
I know, He knows the frustration of seeking an answer…especially when patience is not one of my inborn character traits …and I also know, that He never keeps me waiting any longer than I should….
So here I am, between Him knowing and I knowing…..about something I know not of…not knowing what I should feel while knowing I don’t like what am feeling…..
Psalm 5
A Prayer for Protection
 1 Listen to my words, O Lord,
      and hear my sighs.
 2 Listen to my cry for help,
      my God and king!
   I pray to you, O Lord;
    3 you hear my voice in the morning;
   at sunrise I offer my prayer
      and wait for your answer.

 4 You are not a God who is pleased with wrongdoing;
      you allow no evil in your presence.
 5 You cannot stand the sight of the proud;
      you hate all wicked people.
 6 You destroy all liars
      and despise violent, deceitful people.

 7 But because of your great love
      I can come into your house;
   I can worship in your holy Temple
      and bow down to you in reverence.
 8 Lord, I have so many enemies!
      Lead me to do your will;
      make your way plain for me to follow.

 9 What my enemies say can never be trusted;
      they only want to destroy.
   Their words are flattering and smooth,
      but full of deadly deceit.
 10 Condemn and punish them, O God;
      may their own plots cause their ruin.
   Drive them out of your presence
      because of their many sins
      and their rebellion against you.

 11 But all who find safety in you will rejoice;
      they can always sing for joy.
   Protect those who love you;
      because of you they are truly happy.
 12 You bless those who obey you, Lord;

Sirach 37


Sirach 37: 1 - 14
Anyone can claim to be your friend, but some people are friends in name only. The grief caused when a close friendship turns sour is as bad as death. This evil impulse we have! Why was it ever formed? How did it manage to cover the earth with deceit? Some people will be your friend as long as things are going well, but they will turn against you when trouble comes. A real friend will help you against your enemies and protect you in the fight. Never forget such companions in battle; share the results of your victory with them.
Anyone can give advice, but some people do so only in their own interest. Be careful when somebody offers you advice. Find out first what his interest in the matter is, because you can be sure that he is thinking primarily of himself. Why should he come out on top instead of you? He will assure you that things look good, and then stand back to watch what happens to you. Don't ask advice of anyone who doesn't trust you, and don't give advice to anyone who is jealous of you.
Don't ask a woman for advice about a rival of hers,
   a coward about war,
   a merchant about a bargain,
   a buyer about selling,
   a stingy person about gratitude,
   a cruel person about kindness,
   a lazy person about work,
   a casual worker about finishing a job,
   a lazy slave about a difficult task.

Pay no attention to any advice they may give.
Instead, rely on someone who is religious and known to keep the Lord's commands, someone who is sympathetic with you, who will be sorry to see you fail. And trust your own judgment; no one's advice is more reliable. Sometimes your own intuition can tell you more than seven watchmen on a high tower. Above all, pray to the Most High that he will show you the right thing to do.
