CHRISTIAN POEMS (ITS A NEW DAY)BY TONY TOKUNBO ETEKA FERNANDEZ

ITS A NEW DAY

Its a new day,

And I can sense the blessings of The Lords promise,

Deeply unfolding,

And adding more flavour,

To the paths that will set us free.

 

Our thoughts are awake,

Embracing the patterns of a new liberation,

Meditating in praise,

Inspired in faith,

For what can go wrong,

When we sing the Lord,s song.

 

It is a new hour,

To repent and to start a fresh story,

The torments of the past are now over,

For we have been saved from the prisons of many burdens,

Its a new day,

And the paths have set us free

CHRISTIAN POEMS (I AM SAVED) BY TONY TOKUNBO ETEKA FERNANDEZ

I AM SAVED

I am saved,

By the greatest blessings that stand by me,

And though my heart has been crushed by the upsets of many seasons,

I am washed, from the many troubles that stood in my way.

 

I am blessed,

To see this day and more beginnings,

To embrace the fertility of new roads,

And dine with lots of strangers,

To travel,

And share the glory of his name,

For what could be a greater lesson

I am blessed.

 

I am free ,

to  open my heart and just be me,

to serve the many people waiting,

and listen to the stories from troubled hearts,

I can feel the greatest blessings that stand before me,

For what greater joy can there be

Than to serve the living Lord

CHRISTIAN POEMS (THE JOURNEY HAS JUST BEGUN) BY TONY TOKUNBO ETEKA FERNANDEZ

THE JOURNEY HAS JUST BEGUN

We have been fasting,

All through the night,

Hungry in prayers and dancing in praise,

We have been waiting for the blessings that visit the sunset,

For what could be better than a life with Jesus.

 

We have been blessed,

To climb beyond the journey of every mountain,

With eager hearts and a loyal mind,

And although it might take years,

To feed from the stories of many lessons,

Though it might take time,

To master the secrets of a new salvation,

We have been blessed, for our journey has just begun .

CHRISTIAN POEMS (ALL I NEED IS A LITTLE MORE FAITH) BY TONY TOKUNBO FERNANDEZ

 ALL I NEED IS A LITTLE MORE FAITH

All I need is a little more faith,

To breeze through the stories of many more boundaries,

And walk with ease on a doubtful morning,

Knowing  fully, that all is well,

Even before the journey has begun.

 

I have felt the torment from the bitter rain,

I have felt deflated, I have felt the pain,

But all I need is a little more faith,

To trust the Lord, to sing his name.

CHRISTIAN POEMS “JUST A LITTLE FAITH”BY TONY TOKUNBO ETEKA FERNANDEZ

JUST A LITTLE FAITH

My palms were filled with pain and tears,

And all the burden from many years ,

And even though my heart was weak ,

My Lord has built a home

 

My heart was filled with ageless fear

And all the thoughts I could not bear

But even when I could not breathe

My Lord had built a home

 

My eyes were hurting, I could not see,

The paths were cloudy, , to grey for me,

I kept on walking, with shoulders high

I knew  I was not alone

 

The storm might shake our roof today,

But not our living faith ,

For when we start to sing his name,

That,s when we will find his grace

CHRISTIAN POEMS (WHAT BETTER PROMISE THAN THE LORD) BY TONY TOKUNBO ETEKA FERNANDEZ

WHAT BETTER PROMISE THAN THE LORD

What  better promise lies before me

Than the goodness of The Lord

Guiding my thoughts into a new awakening,

And I am wake, to the sounds of a new revelation ,

Embracing my heart with a blessing

 

I will never be in doubt,

For I have found the Lord,

And his word continues to feed me,

With a truth that has healed the troubles of many nations

What better promise lies before me,

Than the goodness of the living Lord

CHRISTIAN POEMS (RIVERS OF FAITH) BY TONY TOKUNBO ETEKA FERNANDEZ

RIVERS OF FAITH

 

Each river is filled with a happy song,

And the many blessings breathing before our naked eyes,

Each moment is like a picture, dressed with old energies, and new answers that unfold,

When we speak to the Lord in silence.

 

You do not have to travel too far, to embrace the spirit of hope,

You do not need to worry, for The Lord has provided many pillars of faith,

to guide you through each season.

 

And as you praise in silence,

He will take you through those many rivers that shape your calling,

For how good is The Lord when all seems lost before our every eyes,

How Good is The Lord,

When we embrace each river with a happy smile
