Blind Man’s Guitar Song by Kenny Kore
Let me talk to you about this thing
This thought that came and left like a summer fling
This narrow and dark
And even sometimes scary way
You see I saw the signs
The directions in hand
And I ignored them all
I ended up here
In the midst of a crowd and a friend to no one
I was lost
And my inheritance I had traded for little to no cost
I once heard that you are the bright morning star
But I elected to stand and observe your greatness from afar .
Instead of standing on your promises
I went to battle defenseless
And I came out with bruises and scars.
So now I am sitting on this nurse’s table
Hoping time nurses me back to health
Pleading for mercy,
Returning from this empty search for worldly wealth
They continue to say i get
But that all stands for nothing,
Compared to the emptiness I feel in my chest
So much I have lost,
When he had actually given me all
By paying for it
With his life on the cross
He says bring all the tithes and offering in to the store house
But inside that house is a place where peace and happiness should abound
So listen to me when I tell you this
Don’t go searching for worldly pleasures
So your inheritance doesn’t go to waste or go amiss
So the likes might pile up
The comments will stack up
But what happens when your happiness is dried up
You are filled with regret and emptiness
And then you come back crawling like a prodigal’s son
Begging for newness
Begging for one more opportunity to taste of his mercies and goodness
Don’t give up your throne to join a pointless battle over who gets what stone
Because many will sing and chant for you
But to what glory is it,
When they sit there adoring you
He left it all for you and me
Blessings enough for the entire world to see
But many of us have elected to forsake our entitlements
And only settle for the crumbs
The world drops at our feet
He wrote your name in bold to enjoy from his will
But only if you follow his will
To the letter
His promises are to make your life and mine
So don’t settle for what’s left
Don’t sit to be second best
He knows East from West without the help of a GPS
Now don’t for once believe that following his will
Won’t propel you to greatness
To be honest with you
This is a message really for me
I tried to live my way
And got lost in the wind
You are not second best
You’re heir to his throne
Crowned with his blessings
With joy beyond the unknown
Live like you know your purpose
Live for him
And watch your life turn around
If you just obey his will.
Have you ever listened to your parents regarding something and still decided your way was better?
We all have.
But have you ever done something your way and ended up wrong?
Yeah, much harder to admit but we all have.
When someone wealthy dies, they usually leave behind a will. A will is a document filled with directions and instructions on how the wealth should be distributed or shared. But do people always follow “The Will”.
Some even make promises to follow the will while the person is alive but once they pass, it’s like they were never said those words.
God’s Will is superior to any view or notion you have or have ever had. Today, many of think we have it all figured out. The world is so interconnected, we think we can learn whatever we need by ourselves and that is true to some extent. But take it from me, I spent the last two years trying to find myself and I swear I had the best intentions but I did it by myself. I tried to use my knowledge to do it by myself.
I slipped. I can even go as far as saying I backslid. I let my morals drop and I began to be “okay” with mediocrity. It was actually really sad.
The sad thing is, if you’re falling towards mediocrity and you are surrounded by it, no one will warn you that you are fallen until your back breaks as you hit the ground hard.
Mediocrity certainly does not mean in career or intellect but I mean in your purpose for life.
The advantage to following The Will is that the preparer had spent time behind the scenes, creating it. The loopholes and obstacles are all things they would have taken into account.
You can attempt to solve the same issues on the fly but it will be harder.
My life, ladies and gentlemen was a mess. I lost my happiness, my connections with some friends, my verve and even my relationship. I was filled with regret and suicidal thoughts as they chased out the happiness in me.
I put my purpose on the backburner. Now I was so broken the last quarter of last year that I had to go back to God on my knees; begging for his mercy.
Don’t feel bad for me, it has only served to make me stronger and better man. BUT I still had to go back to his will, after doing it my own way.
Today on the first #WordsOfWednesday of 2015, I urge you to be happy but DO HIS WILL. Find out what he wants from you. I’m referring to your purpose in life and then ask him how to get there.
My number ONE prayer this year is “Lord, let your will be done in my life and even when my flesh does not want to accept it, force me to”.
Begging for increase is a different proposition to begging for mercy. Do it his way.
The easiest way to take control of your life, is to give all control to God.
God bless you all. Welcome to #WhatTheHeckMan 2015. It is going to be an exciting ride, I have sooooo much planned for all of you.
Please comment as usual but also use the hashtag #WordsOfWednesday on Twitter and share our posts on Facebook.
My stories and poems this year will make you cry, laugh, excited, angry, reflective, inspired, determined, focused, peaceful and they will be different.
#WhatTheHeckMan is my life, my words are my ministry and you all are my family. Read with me, grow with me and I pray this time next year, happiness will be in all our hearts.
