PBG5ONE Thursday Video Content – Loving God

GOD LOVES YOU, DO YOU LOVE HIM? In recent times, our generation has lit up with a great “revelation” or should I say understanding of God’s love for us, and rightly so. We spent a long time – may be too long a time – hearing so much of God’s wrath and justice, while knowing […]

With freckles that removedSpeckles from my visionI soon enough swung into a missionMy morale went from zero to sea breeze bold. Beauty that gave me gingerLeft me like I was drunk in aleI said to her;You look like a twilightStanding out like a starlightThey say change is constantBut I pray your freckles never sway. She […]
