Poems by Linda Phakedi




Linda writes: "I am a born-again Christian.  I was born in South Africa and I hold a Human Resource Management Degree.  I am the first of three children.  I love the Lord with all my heart.  I love kids and firmly believe in the importance of education.  I'm not much of a reader apart from the word of God and I love the arts as a hobby."



Caleb
By Linda Phakedi

You might walk a different path
You might fight a different battle
Born of a different time
You speak a different tongue

Yet your time is now
To take that needed step
Your time is now
To lead a different path

Like Caleb, you are the heir of the promised land
A young, courageous, bold hearted man
A man of faith, obedience and honesty

Oh...like this man I want to be
He knew were HE wants to be
No matter the great giants he faced
They knew not the armor he wore

Conscious of the fact that his armor is not carnal
The power of God is one none can devour

What great stature
A different spirit of his kind
A leader to be applauded
Bravery at its best

"Let us go at once and possess", he said
With the fruit of the land in hand

I don't know about you
But...
That's were I'm heading...
To get MY milk and honey
As the Lord had intended

My God Is Awesome
By Linda Phakedi

My God Is...
Awesome
Like a chess peace...
He moves me...
Into the right direction...WITH compassion...
There is NO comparison...
No one could EVER love me like...

My God Is...
Awesome
Like an art peace He created me
Accept I...
I can Love, Eat and Pray...
He's unlike the Idols of Baal, that delay...

My God is...
Awesome
Im talking Awesomly loaded...
Richly and NOT Filthy coated
Should I quote Psalms 68 v 35
Just to let you know that...

My God is...
Awesome
He is Omniscient
Omnipresent
Omnipotent
He is Omnibenevolent
That's just plain English
He's more schooled than Einstein and Gates or Shuttleworth in one.

My God is...
Awesome
He is Internationally Worshipped
Not only in THIS centre
But to the outta ends of this matter,
Way beyond Armstong could ever travel

My God is...
Awesome 
Not only is He the God of Abraham
God of Isaac
God of Jacob
He's also God of Joshua
God of Hinn and
God of Makhanya...
Go on and ask Samson, Daniel or Elijah  
They too will proclaim that...

My God is...
Awesome
HE IS...
Jehovah Jireh
Jehovah Nissi
Jehovah El shaddai
The one I spoke to this morning
Hense you see me here confirming THAT
MY God IS...
AWESOME!
