I HAVE SEEN

In my over 4 decades of existence, I have seen many things by which I have been instructed:

I have seen FAITH without STANDARDS;

I have seen CONFESSION without COMMITMENT;

I have seen VANITY, branded as VIRTUE;

I have seen WEAKNESS promoted as STRENGTH;

I have seen PILLARS become GALLOWS;

I have seen SHEPHERD become WOLF;

I have seen the OFFENDED punished and the OFFENDER crowned;

I have seen DINNER GUEST, who forbids his HOST from partaking from the delicacies he had prepared;

I have seen the SATISFIED being begged with food and the HUNGRY left to die;

I have seen HATERS speaking the soothing words of LOVE to the UNWARY;

I have seen where every fact known to man implicated ONE and yet he is INNOCENT;

I have seen my BEST INTENTIONS mistaken

for ULTERIOR MOTIVE;

I have seen my BEST EFFORTS viewed as NO-EFFORTS;

I have seen my  MISTAKES celebrated as my EXPERTISE;

I have seen DEATH FACE TO FACE 10 times, yet I have LIVED;

I have seen that all that GLITTERS may not be GOLD and all that is GOLD may not GLITTER;

I have LOST SOME,

I have WON MANY;

I have learnt the WISDOM to ABOUND and ABASE;

Above all, I have seen the SUPER ABUNDANCE MERCIES and FAITHFUL GOODNESS of God;

My HEART is full of MATTERS,

These days even when my eyes are opened,

It is as if they are shut,

I’m often lost in reflections,

I now see beyond the surface,

Not easily excited,

Quick to HEAR, SLOW SPEAK, SLOW to WRATH, Yet I’m full of LIFE and OPTIMISM;

I have HOPEFUL EXPECTATION of GOOD in Christ JESUS ALWAYS.

Have an INSPIRED NEW YEAR.

Taiwo Akinlami Sober on his knees on the LORD’s Day
