Today’s fragrance: He reigns forever


Today’s fragrance by Papberry

Topic: He reigns forever.

Main Text: Lamentations 5:19

You, Lord, reign forever; your throne endures from generation to generation.

If you are looking for something permanent, look no further because what you need is closer than you think.

I want to present to you, the King of all kings, Ruler of all rulers and the Leader of all leaders.

One who can boast in all his infinite possessions but never does.

Just one ruby on his robe is much more than the wealth of the richest men combined yet He is the perfect epitome of humility.

He is more than you could ever need for He is the true definition of abundance.
We don’t deserve His love but He does offer it to everyone. The churched and unchurched, saved and unsaved.

He is a King Who fights with no one nor competes with anyone over His throne.
That throne Has His name on it and it is permanent.

He has everything yet entered into this world through a human and was delivered in a manger not a mansion.

He is the only one capable of binging the dead to life and delivering life to the dead.

He loves the world and I love His word because His word became flesh and in that flesh He demonstrated His love to the world.

I could try to explain Him but I can’t for the day I will be able to, He will cease to be Jesus and I, human but that’s impossible. I am human but He is divine, I am limited but He, unlimited.

I can’t even begin to describe Him but He is wonderful and powerful and so strong and beautiful like the wind, but unseen meaning I can never get His full description.

So today I want to urge you not to run around following religious leaders who died and remained dead.

Presidents who had their turns in office but got dethroned after a period. Fix your eyes on Jesus, the one who makes and unmakes. He is all in one and He reigns forever.

Ever since He mounted that throne no one has been able to dethrone, overthrow or cast ballot on Him ’cause He is king by no human effort and is unopposed.

He stands at the narrow path with a key to the gate and you only have to reach out and embrace His grace, you don’t have to wait anymore…

He loves you and me even more than Himself.

Blessings…

Prayer

Father in the name of Jesus, thank you for today, please forgive my sins as I forgive those who do wrong against me. Lord thank you for loving me this much. Please lead me to that place in you where I can find rest eternally in Jesus name, amen.

Time to say goodbye

IMG_1014-0

As the sun rises and sets, so it is with every life and activity.
Years do die like living creatures.
It has been a long run of three hundred and sixty five days.
Days filled with happiness, sorrow, grief, achievements, disappointments and success stories.

2016, your lifespan ends today!
And a new one will be birthed out tomorrow like a baby.
Life and destiny can steal you away from me but nothing can take away our memories.
As tunes of songs are not forgotten as it fades out and stops playing, so will I never forget the priceless memories we shared.

We used to hang out all the time, and now I will miss you all the time.
We had a deal whiles you were still young to be good to me.
You partly honored my wish notwithstanding the challenges that flung around.
When the sun says goodbye to earth, it leaves a beautiful sunset as a gift.

Even as you leave, I will remain grateful for packages I received with my name written on them.
Packages of love.
Packages Of favor.
Packages I call success will I hold on to welcome the new baby.

Thank you my Creator for yet another successful journey around the hot sun.

indeed it was hot! But you covered me with your cloud so I didn’t burn out.

The only reason I am saying goodbye is so that I can get a chance to say hello again.
Goodbye 2016, Goodbye my friend!

Christmas

It’s here again!
The birth month of my savior.

Another revolution around the sun!

The 25th night of the month of December,

O holy night! The stars are brightly shining.

It is the night of my dear Savior’s birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining, till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.

He came to accomplish a mission , a mission that enabled me to regain that capacity for a direct relationship with God.

They call this day Christmas!

Many, many, many years ago, a son was born unto us.

The King of kings was ushered into this world on this day.

He is a prophecy that came true.

The Gateway to the Father.
Peace on earth and mercy mild,

God and sinners reconciled.

The angels and the heavens rejoiced for the first son of the most high has been birthed.
Why do I celebrate him?

I do for he brought me hope.

I do for God stepped into history to do something to end my rebellion.

I do for he came to bridge the gab between me and the Father.

To liberate me from the bondage of sin and give unto me eternal life.

He took off my chains and set me free.

He came to show me the true definition of love.

He is God’s gift unto mankind.

He brought unto me grace for He is grace.

God’s Riches At (His) Christ’s Expense. This is what I call GRACE.
Rejoice rejoice rejoice!

His birth brought only good things unto us and we ought to celebrate.

It is Christ’s birthday! Cheers to this!!

Happy birthday my Savior .

Merry Christmas my dear reader.

A new thing

img_4952

Everyday I uncover a piece of you,
Like a puzzle, I find pieces of you that solve my problems perfectly.
It’s intriguing the things you are showing me.

I have experienced something new.
Gone are the days I kept my eyes on the watch till all is done!
But now, I wish the clock will come to a standstill when I’m with you.

I feel restless in your presence,
and in my restlessness I feel at peace.
It’s like I’m going crazy for my system for a long time, has not experienced a thing of this sort.

my emotions are expressed in a crazy way when I’m around you!
I love that you are taking me deeper but going deep isn’t deep enough for me anymore,
I wanna be in the deep with you.

I love that I’m getting more sensitive to your calls each passing day.
I love you so much it hurts.
It hurts because nothing I have is enough to pay for your goodness.

Yes it hurts, but in a good way.
We’ve  gotten to the point where I never encounter you without tears dripping off my face.
Not because you scorn or hit me,
But because you cause an unexplainable vibe in me!

I love you, and it’s deep
I have never felt this way about anyone but You!
Indeed you are my life, without you I am a dead being!

Dear Father

img_5593
It feels as if I’m just speaking into the thin air.
So I ask, Please can you hear me?
With the tears rolling down my cheeks gradually filling my mouth, I am unable to speak, but that doesn’t matter right?
Because you know my heart and you know it’s in deep pain.

You said I shouldn’t be afraid but I am afraid, Infact I am horror-struck.
You said amidst the violent storm, there you are with me,
But I’m drowning, why has the storm overshadowed me?

You said I should be glad always but today even the sky frowns at me, how do I smile?
I feel alone in this space you made.
I need to know that you are with me and on my side.
My strength is gradually leaving me and my hope fading…

Have you forgotten your very own?
You said you would never leave nor forsake me, but these words I see far away from me.
I am lost in the desert where no water nor food is.
A miracle in this place is what I look forward to.

Though you said you cause water to flow out of the desert, I am dying of thirst.
I’m not saying you lied to me.
All I am saying is that, I am lost and I hope I get found by no one but You!
