CRAFTSMAN by Oghenero Ezaza – Issue #3

IN YOUR PRESENCE

In your presence I am safe

I am joyful, I am obedient

Out there I am entangled

In a web of immorality

 

In your presence my heart is pure

My heart is repentant, my heart finds peace

Out there my heart is scared

My heart is rebellious, my heart is troubled

 

In your presence all I see is you

All I know is you, all I have is you

Out there all I know is drugs

All I know is porn, all I know is pain

 

In your presence I forever stay

I know your presence, I love your presence

Out there I detest

Out there I know and totally renounce

 

 

CRAFTSMAN

You are the craftsman

The creator of life

The architect of destiny

The sculptor of time

 

He is the Supreme Being

Makes things that are

From things that are not

Speaks things that are not to become

Maker of intangibles

Author of breath

Designer of nature

Painter of adjectives

Poet of senses

Potter of feelings

 

You are divinely creative

Writer of grace

Your realm is above life

Craftsman I fall and worship

At your feet

It is the most high place

 

 

GET IT RIGHT

Get it right not wrong

No man can please God plus man

It is so written; God’s Word is Truth

 

Be not confused it is simple

You cannot please God plus the world

If you choose Christ

Then men have got to deny you like crime

But for the few who share your faith

Yet even they may betray you

Come some very persecuting day

Be not broken for the Way forewarned

This world that showed me hate will show you same

 

Beloved deceived not thy feeble self

And let none mislead you

You simply cannot serve two masters

For the one you will surely honour

But the other you cannot help but undermine

For where the one would eat rice, but the other beans

You sure will feed the one and starve the next

 

Get it right not wrong

It is so easy to comprehend

I too once believed I did perfectly

That is pleasing God plus the world

Until experience, Grace plus the Spirit

Revealed to me the understanding of The Truth
