yet



In Memory:
SEKURU MATTHEW MAHARA CELESTINE WAZARA


There are dangerous men among men;
Those who frighten demons-
By their lives of selflessness.
In rage, they are destroyed –
By cowards shrinking from their voice.
Yet God…
Yet, God is faithful.

There are some whose lives of love
Pose a threat to the enemy-
And blind others who are weak.
Weak from struggle underneath.
And yet…
And Yet, God is strong.

There are those who survive-
The death of a beloved hero.
There are those who survive the blast –
That took them.
Their lives are the same:
A dangerous testimony –
That speaks of the grace and the power of God.

And yet,
We believe –
That our Father is the faithful one.
And yet,
We take up our cross

And follow Him.



If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.  For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.  For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?
      Luke 9:23-25
