THIS PLACE!!


Pious faces everywhere
Calm hearts everywhere
Lighted hands up yonder to worship
Holy lips to sing angels songs
Hugs and holy kisses are free
This place smells like heaven
Yes! This place is heaven on earth

Stain glass proof windows tightly closed
Boxed in our own world no one sees
Fragrance proof doors to keep it here

Sullen faces everywhere
Heavy hearts everywhere
Lips of clay our silence to each other
Wrapped in pain, hugs are costly
This place smells like hell !!

Concealed in her purse the fragrance of love
From the roof top, a Macedonia call to action
This place smells like God has bled to death
With tears he beckoned; pour it out everywhere!!

She is afraid to be different
She is comfortable blending in
She is afraid to show forth her hidden identity
Her traditional bells sounds louder than her calling
Her sacred cows are more important than a dying world
She is Boxed in a religion of monopolizing God

LIVING ICONS OF A LIVING CREATOR


“Christianity is a showing forth of Christ, and not a show off of self. We actually have nothing good in of ourselves to show forth or show off, apart from Christ Jesus. Man is made in God’s image; a living icon of His Creator. He reflects on the character of God.”

We display the character of God through our earthly vessels as royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, God’s own purchased. Our lights are meant to shine before men, that they may SEE our GOOD WORKS for the purpose of Gods glory in all of our activities, on this side of life.

Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God  (1 Cor 10:31)

We are painting an image of a living God; who is personal, loving and excellent in His nature. We become excellent creation in all spheres of life, as we harmonize our heart with our true identity in God, through faith. I like how Oswin Crafton echoes this truth; “An aesthetic beauty of nature everywhere, is due to its constant harmony with the principles of God. A heart in harmony with God, reflects the desirable beauty in its moral behavior and character, everywhere”

Reflect on your identity in Christ, as you boldly confess these profound truths!! You will see your life transformed from low self-esteem to Christ esteem; from an abysmal performance to over the top performer, in all you do on this side of life. (whether you toss pizza in a small restaurant or manage Fortune 500 company)

  • I am a living icon of an excellent living Creator
  • I am called to show forth His excellence
  • I display His best on the pedestal, for all to see
  • I exceed expectation in all my activities
  • Inferiority is out of my reach
  • Quality is my trademark
  • Whatever I do, I do it heartily
  • I am a servant of excellence
  • My excellence rewards automatically
  • Money is not my master but rather a servant to me
  • I have a fair chance in life just like every other human
  • My excellent heart distinguished me from others
  • I make mistakes just like everyone does
  • My excellent spirit overshadows my mistakes
  • Quality is my trademark
  • A city on a hill is who I am
  • The light of the world is who I am
  • I let my light shine intentionally
  • I break traditions and step outside the lines
  • I abound in excellent speech
  • I abound in knowledge
  • I abound in wisdom
  • I abound in faith
  • I abound in zeal
  • I abound in love
  • I abound in giving
  • I am a living icon of an excellent God
  • A superior representation of His image
 Then this Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king gave thought to setting him over the whole realm. (Daniel 6:3)
