The Promise

I don’t know of a better way to say this, but life is hard, life is a battle, living is not easy especially as an adult, life is not a bed of roses. The journey is full of curves and huddles. There’s no easy ride in the race of life.

The journey sometimes if not most of the time is damn right disappointing. Life is not fair and it is even harder for anyone who takes it for granted.

Life has a mind of it own, one moment life is all good and smooth and the next moment everything turns south.

Life is full of ups and downs and only those who are courageous enough to get up everytime they fall will life yield to.

Sometimes life happens to us not necessarily because we fail to plan, but because life just didn’t go as we planned.

Life is like a mountain, you will never get to the top unless you climb it.

Life is a school, not everyone who starts or are in the same class graduates at the same time and with the same grades. Some come out with first, second, third class and even some as drop out. It all depends on what you put in and the measure of grace upon you.

Life is a fire where precious stones are refined, only those who can stand the test of time will come out pure and refined.

Life is like a game, if you don’t play it you stand no chance of winning.

Even though life is a game, we mustn’t see it as a competition against others but against ourselves. Compete and play to be better than you were yesterday, play against your fears, play to be the best you can be. Compete against your challenges and even when you fail don’t remain a failure.

Identify where you might have gone wrong and learn from it then move on to try again.
The journey of life has so many routes and not everyone arrives at the same time.

Life answers to those who do not give up on life but are courageous enough to fail forward.

Nevertheless, in the midst of all these challenges, it is more than encouraging to know that we can rest confidently on the infallibility of God’s word for us in Isaiah 41:10 which says;

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Isaiah 41:10 KJV

This is God reassuring and reminding us of who He is and what He will do for us by Himself.

So do not be unhinge or frightened, but be bold as a lion because the Lion of the tribe of Judah is with you in the journey of life.

He’s your strength, backbone and stability in time of weakness, help and supporter in time of trouble.

He will keep and maintain you in an unaltered condition with His right hand of righteousness.

So, in spite of any challenges you might be going through, i implore you to take consolation in God’s unfailing love.

As i minister to you, i minister to myself..

Thanks and God bless, until next time…




Solemn promise

Now that we are just
starting our love,
What do you promise me?
Do you promise
To love me
Until the end of time?
Until death do us part?
That is the promise
I make to you;
That is my solemn promise;
I promise to love you
With all my heart,
And my soul,
Not part of my heart
And soul;
I also promise
To be faithful to you
For as long as we live;
I promise you
All my love;
The totality of my love;
I leave nothing for another.
All my love is for you.
Head, feet and toes,
I am in love with you.

Count on me

Do you know you can
count on me?
I promise you,
I will not be lazy;
I promise you,
I will work hard;
I promise you,
I will do my best;
I promise you,
I will stay on it;
I promise you,
I will not give up;
I promise you,
I will not make a mistake;
I promise you,
I will be careful;
I promise you,
I will accomplish
My mission
With flying colors;
I promise you,
You can count on me.

There for you (Poem 99 from 100 poems for my sweetheart by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

I want to tell you
I love you;
I want to tell you
Mine you are;
I want to tell you
How precious you are;
I want to tell you
I will ever be yours;
Yes, you count on me:
When the sun shines,
Count on me;
If snow falls,
Count on me;
Ever I will be there
To stand by you.

Will you promise me?(Poem 98 from 100 poems for my sweetheart by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

Today, I felt as never before;
I felt so special,
Because of you;
I felt loved again;
I saw love sparks in your eyes;
I wonder why it took so long
For those eyes to shine again
With love for me;
Where did the love vanish to
My love?
It just vanished into thin air
And I was left in the cold;
Thank God who never sleeps;
We are back to where we were;
Promise you will never again
Leave me for an unknown land;
That you will be mine for ever
As I will be yours for ever.
Will you promise me?
I’m waiting to hear those words.

Poem No. 12 from 100 poems from my sweetheart

My promise

Darling, do you know
About world Promise Day?
I have a promise to make
To you;
Do you want to hear?
This promise comes from
My holiest of holies;
You can call it my heart;
The inner bowl of my heart.
I promise to love you
With all my heart;
To think of you every day
Of my life;
To fight for our love;
Never to accept anything
To come between us.
This is my promise;
And I will respect every
Single word I promise.
Now, I want to hear
Your promise;
Tell me what you promise;
My heart long to hear.
Say it my love;
My ears are open and waiting.

Only death shall part us

Do you remember
What you promised me?
Do you know
That a promise is a debt?
And are you ready
To keep or to break
Your promise?
Doesn’t it matter to you
That you made this promise
To me?
And are you not ashamed
To break your promise?
On my part,
I will never break
My promise to you;
In sun or in rain,
I am yours;
And you are mine;
You are mine for ever;
I will cling to you;
And only death shall
Part us.
Wherever you go,
There, I shall go with you.

Remember your promise

What ever you want to do,
Remember your promise;
Remember you promised me
To be mine for ever;
You promised to be faithful to me;
And never to leave me;
Have you forgotten?
You can’t tell me
You have forgotten;
So soon?
You can’t afford to forget
Such an important promise.
If you make a promise,
Make sure you keep it;
So, my good friend,
Remember your promise.

Inspirational Verse 5

This is the Lord’s promise:
“I will show my concern for you and keep my promise to bring you back home. I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future you hope for. Then you will call to me. You will come and pray to me, and I will answer you. You will seek me and you will find me because you will seek me with all your heart.”
(Jeremiah 29:10-13).
