Not Today

Udo came over to the house looking all radiant and having this strong peace that was blazing in her eyes. I had to ask her why she was so confident. She gives me a piercing smile and starts to spill.
She said “last night we couldn’t sleep, we all saw fear in papa’s eyes, he was about to give us farewell speech when i intercepted him and asked him to cast away all fears. I remind myself about what God says:that our lives are a testimony, and no one can pull us out of Gods hands, thats why we look at death in the eyes and say ” Not Today”.

Guess what! in speaking such, peace flows in, like a river in our soul.
So we can have the best of life, eat the best food, have the best of friends and family round about us, be the best version of ourselves and so on but if we lack the most important thing in our life, the voice of God, the peace that passeth all understanding, the best helper,then we are in for to many heartaches.
As i remind myself daily, many are my wants, my dreams, my desires, my goals and visions but the greatest of them all is my need for I Am.
Whatiznext is that: God comes first. First things first. So when i do the first things first, all others gets settled. So when fear, death and its brothers come knocking, i open up, look them in the eyes and with power that shines forth, i say “Not Today”.

  1. God first….. His peace overwhelms and supercedes all our needs, aspirations, dreams and projections. Great piece dearie, thank you.
