There is nothing, no one as glorious, exquisite, beautiful, overwhelming, lovely and captivating as the Lord Himself. Why seek for something or someone less?
They told me I came naked. Naked? What does that even mean? No clothes, no nothing. I couldn't believe it. Whose fault was it? They said it was normal: People come that way. But then they shocked me: People also leave that way...
All the LOVE that melts your heart, All AFFECTIONS that warm your mind All the CARE that steal your breath And the BEAUTIES that make you stare...
If you grew up feeling secure, Be grateful. Many were abused by nearest kin, It hurts. They would have been spared undue shame.
How you slipped away when we held you close Is still a shock to us. You shunned our calls, ignored our talks Lied to mum And changed your ways like a chameleon.
What is this mountain so large in my sight? At the sight of you I have no strength to climb. Confused and in despair I stand and stare. Out of my feeble lips come: "Lord help me".

A distorted gospel produces a distorted faith in a distorted Jesus who provides a distorted hope.
