Be angry BUT do no sin!

'“Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher. 
“Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless.” '

Ecclesiastes 1:2 NIV
Tonbridge, UK.
What a statement? 
Be angry but do not sin
For sin leads to death

This has never sounded so true 
in my heart until this week
Can I tell I had a fab weekend 
I don’t do camping, 
so a shock to me when 
I actually enjoyed it, 
guess what it was just one night 

Seeing what God has made 
Hearing the birds at night as they sing 
Walking in the woods and playing games 
Was nothing more than a miracle from God
To be a child and enjoy life 
is far beyond my imagination

Glory to the Father 
He has made it possible
He has been my Rock 

And England lost, 
disappointed but it only a game
It is amazing we got to the final 
What a great job they did
I am thankful for those young boys
They all did an amazing job 

So when Monday came, 
I see all the racist comments 
I must say the heat started to go up
The water on the fire wood 
was starting boil over 
I could see it splashing into the fire
It was spiraling and I had to take 
Some woods out to cool the heat 
and let the water simmer

Oh how much angrier can anyone get 
For I look to my Lord
I call on His Name, 
how much longer can this go on for
Worst things happen around the world 
I do not need this, 

For so long we have been oppressed 
For so long we have been mocked 
For so long, my hair is been ridiculed 
It was not professional enough
I should straighten it out 

O’Lord my God, You have made me 
Given me this amazing and beautiful hair and 

How can they be so cruel
The memories start to flow out as I hear the chanting 
The names that can only come from the enemy 
Who is here to steal, kill and destroy
Yes, I forget to turn the heat down

Lord I am grateful that I know 
You created me in Your image 
You have created and know me before I was born 
You gave me Afro hair and I will not change it for anything
You gave me the colour of my skin 

I am dark but lovely 
Do not look upon me because I am dark 
For the Lord has created me this way 
To withstand the sun, 
To enjoy His creation
To be who I am and that my dear brothers and sisters 
Is to worship Him only 

I have come into the garden
I have come to plant 
I have come to dance 
I have come to be merry 

For the Lord has given me the joy of salvation 
For the Lord has turn my heart of stone to flesh 
For the Lord has shielded me from my oppressor

For who am I
I can be angry but the Grace allows me to not sin 
I walk and see Reuben angry and sinned against God 
He slept with his father’s concubine
Or Simeon and Levi, they had every right to be angry 
But they sin against God, killing everyone

For my God says,
I will fight Your battle 
Why should I not trust him?
Yes, I will be angry at the way life comes out 
Life is in the hands of God
The road is narrow and I will come in contact with 
Obstacles but I have my Lord at my right hand 
Who says, I will never leave you nor forsake you

To everything there is a season
     A time to mourn
         A time to dance
             A time to keep silence 
                 A time to speak
                     A time of war 
                        And a time for peace 

I know that whatever the Lord does 
It shall be forever
Nothing can be added or taken away
So I will not fear man but God
For what God says He does
And God requires an account of what is past

How I love the Lord 
For He heals the mind
The most powerful thing I have learned is 
To be silent and still in His presence 
For the Lord sees, and knows all

Be angry, but do not sin
Let God fight your battle

  1. Racism is a sin against our fellow human beings and a sin against God who created us. It is an insult to God because in his artistry he created us and our diversity.

    You are a beautiful young woman little sister inside and out.

    1. So true and glory to Jesus for shining the light on the truth of the world.

      Also thanks for the lovely and kind words, big Bro. 🤗

      God is good. It took an intervention from the Lord Jesus to clean and make me free and see myself the way He sees me. That truth can never be taken away from me. ♥️
