Poem: You Will Rise Again

It’s okay to fall
It’s very okay to make mistakes
It’s okay to fail
to think differently
to hold on to your beliefs
It’s okay not to agree
It’s okay if you don’t get it
If you feel like the odd one in a group
I tell you
I’ve been there
I’ve gotten it wrong many times
came out for altar calls more that 10 times
I fell out of worship
And into worship countless of times

I strolled in and out of the secret place
So I think I understand what you’re going through
It’s okay to fall
as long your back don’t remain on the ground
Its okay to make mistakes
as long as you learn from them and don’t keep repeating same
It’s okay to fail
as long as you can pin point where you got it wrong
and take a U-turn from there
It’s okay to think differently
so long you ask questions and seek wise counsel

Everybody fell at some point in their lives
you’re not the first
but the difference between them all is the ability to rise up again
Beloved, how long shall you remain on the ground
covered in dust?

How long shall you keep making same mistakes
and encouraging yourself with the notion that
“everyone makes mistakes”?
Should I go easy on sin because people say
No one is holy?
Should I go easy on my spiritual life because I am not a pastor?
Should I leave prayers to the prayer warriors of the church simply because I am in the entertainment industry?
Should I not be concerned about my temperament because I am choleric and it is “in my nature”?
Friends, it is time to rise again
God is not looking for a perfect image

He is looking for a willing image
to make perfect…
so don’t over think spirituality and holiness
but give yourself willingly to be led
propose in your heart to rise again
no matter how many times you fall
make up your mind to not give up
no matter how many times you fail
You will rise again!
