POEM – NEVER ENOUGH

Oh would I have tongues like fire
Burning with brimstone and sulphur
Acidic bullets coated with led innings
Never enough will it be enough

Never enough were the tears I shed
When I fell on the road to hell
Never enough were the help I got
On my sojourn back to heaven
Never enough will it be enough

MY CHAPEL EXPERIENCE

During Tuesday Chapel, we’ve always had a preacher from the US. He is not necessarily the Pastor, hence the word, preacher. I’ll call him Pastor A. For most of us, he was our first contact with preaching to a mixed audience.

LETTER TO ALL SINGLE MOTHERS

This letter is to all single mothers out there. I hope you find strength; and a good husband.

Dear single mother,

My name is Deji but I’m not a single father. Not because I’ve not had opportunities to birth babies nor for lack of available baby mamas. I am not a single father because I have not impregnated any lady and not be put in the position to abort nor deny my sperm.

Okay okay, still you said through your boy, Jesus, you are the only perfect one. I know. I guess that explains it.

OBED-EDOM

#29DaysWritingChallenge
#Day13

There is a story of a man who’s only offence of being dumped with a ‘killer’ ark of covenant was just having a house off the road.

I love the way the Message Bible puts it; “Instead, David removed it off the road and to the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite.” (II Sam 6: 10b).

Apparently, they were ‘on the road’, something tragic happened, and David, anointed David, angry first and then feared, diverted the trajectory of the ark ‘off the road’ into the house of someone.
