The Game Of Life

You turn my life around, around,
You turn my life around, around,
He is the way where there is no way;
Jehovah has the final say.

Yes indeed.
John 14:6 says: “He is the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through His son.”
The Son of God; the one who died for our sins.
The one who suffered on the cross for us,
The one who never sinned, but yet bored our sin so that we may be free.
Free, I say.
What is freedom?
Making our own decisions? Doing whatever we want, whenever we want?
Living life our own way?
Remember that in the end
This ‘freedom’ can give you a ‘free’ ride to hell,
That is, if you don’t ‘free’ yourself from this world.
So are you really free then?
1 Peter 2:16 says: “As servants of God, live as free people, yet do not use your freedom as a pretext for evil.”
Galatians 5:13 says: “For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for self-indulgence, but through love become slaves to one another.”
Remember that all actions have a reaction;
Each move has several outcomes,
But you will never know which move will produce which outcome.
Life isn’t like a game of chess.
You are not able to predict future moves or outcomes.
There is no undo button like when you’re playing against the computer and find yourself in a checkmate,
But make sure that life doesn’t checkmate you
Because when it does, you will find yourself in a corner
And no one can get you out of that tight squeeze.
Right?
Wrong.
God can overcome any checkmate in life.
Exodus 14:13a says: “But Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid, stand firm, and see the deliverance that the Lord will accomplish for you today.” ”
Use your freedom wisely.
Trust in God and you’ll never have to predict moves like a game of chess.
Of course, there is still no undo button.
But trust God to make the right moves
And surely you will checkmate life.

Who has the final say,
Jesus has the final say.

Whose decision will you follow:
Yours or God’s?

The Decision

One moment you’re there,
And I want to be there with you.
But I can’t help the times where I hate you,
And I can’t help the times where I love you.
The times when you’re just being you.

The moment where I know
It’s never meant to be
And yet I let you go,
Fully…
To protect you?
No. To protect me.
I’m more fragile than you think.
I’m more fragile than you know.
Do you?
Do you know?
I guess you don’t.
That’s alright.
It makes it easier
To not love you,
Yo stay away from you,
To hate you,
To be everything I’m not.

All because I just want to protect myself.
You understand…
Right?

Just To Let You Know

I know you don’t see,
But I want to let you know,
Without letting you know,
That you’re hurting my feelings.
You’re hurting me.

Sure, I make mistakes.
Sure, you’re my best friend,
But you’re not my only friend.

It’s unfair the way you treat me,
And I’m too kind to do anything about it.
And you’re too selfish to care.
It’s like even with what I’m getting
I’m still better off than you.
Which isn’t true.

I’m just letting you know
Without letting you know,
That you should stop.
Your cruelty just breaks me.

Thank God I have reliable people.
People that I can turn to when I’m down.
People that love me.
People that I love.

What do you believe?

NB. This poem is for all my Christian/ Methodist peers.
For all you non-believers, oh well. It’s of no concern to me.

We are all Christians.
We are all Methodists.
Do you believe that?

There is a God.
We believe in a God.
We believe in God.
(I know I do.)
The very same God who gave His son for us.
The very same God who gave His one and only son for us.
The very same God who gave His son to die on the cross for us.
Do you believe that?

I believe it.

I believe in God. I believe that there is a God who gave His one and only son to dir for me, and for that, I am eternally grateful.

I believe that Jesus died and rose again.
Do you?

Are you like those people?
The ones who come to church, sit down, listens to what happens, goes home, and that’s it?
Like the ones who only know where their Bible is after searching every nook and cranny for it?
Like the ones tho talk to God when they’re hoping for something they want, or are in trouble?
Are you that kind of person?

Or are you the person that prays everyday, who reads their Bible regularly, who talks to God and thanks Him for every little thing that happens, both good and bad?

There’s a saying, “Show my your friends and I’ll tell you the kind of person you are.”
There’s another saying, “Show my your schedule and I’ll tell you the kind of person you are, spiritually.”

What kind of person are you?

Maybe you should lock up your distractions for a week or more, and observe how different you life would turn out to be.

You would find that you suddenly have “more time” on your hands and that you’re always bored.

How about you take that extra time that you acquired and do something positive with it, like reading your bible.
Talking to the man upstairs.
He’s waiting for you, you know?
He;s waiting for you to make that decision.
Your life is in your hands.
Your life is in His hands as well.
But you only hand one life, so whose hands will you put your life in.
Yours or His?

Who will you believe?
The one who says everything in your favour?
Or the one who says, “I have a plan for you, for your life.”?

What will you believe?
Who will you believe?
Make your choice,
And soon.

Me… and You.

This is no confession
This is a declaration of friendship
This is about me and you
This is for me and you
This is by me… for you.

I’ve just met you
I barely know you
But I feel as though this…
This thing between us
Was meant to be
I want to know you more
I want to know more about you
And in exchange you can learn more about me
I’ll start now.

I love to sing,
I enjoy writing poetry
I tend to get depressed when there are people that I know
And we haven’t chatted in days…
But I’m getting over it
I can make exceptions
For people like you
Because I know (barely) what your lifestyle is like
I know you like to disappear
And that’s fine
As long as you leave a message
(That worries me :<)

I want to see you
I want you to see me
So we can see each other
And just…
See each other

This is all new to me
This is all confusing to me
This is all new…
And confusing

I hope…
I can understand these feelings
Never before have I felt this way
Felt this feeling
But it’s not a scary feeling
I like the feeling
It’s a feeling I’d like to learn more about
A curious feeling
I was told it was a developing crush…

Well I’ll be bold
And say…
Let that crush develop
I’m not talking about love
Since I’ve no idea what it is
But…
I don’t even know

Let’s just take it slow?
Let’s get to know each other
Cam with me
I’ll cam with you
Smile for me
I’ll smile for you
Laugh with me
I’ll laugh with you
Know me
I’ll know you
Listen to me
I’ll sing for you
Blush for me
I’ll giggle for you
Be there for me
And I’ll always depend on you.

This is no confession
This is a declaration of friendship
This is about me and you
This is for me and you
This is by me… for you.
