Chief corner stone

Updated on May 3, 2011

When i was a little lad,people took me for granted because my parents were poor, we hardly see three square meals in a day,Mom toiled day and night to support the family while Dad kept two jobs to make sure that we ate at least once a day.

There was the seven of us and i am the first child, i dropped out from school at a tender age of 12 and joined an uncle in trading but that did not eased things for my parents. Dad was always pissed off about the whole situation but Mom always encouraged both him and us. The law in the family was never get sick or injured because there was no money for medical bills and honestly i never felt sick as a kid nor did any of my siblings.

The society we found ourselves in was a society where the rich holds it all and the poor is a no body, education pays but then it is an easy value for whoever that has a sponsor but for us, education remained a thing to struggle for.

I left for City when i was 18 because my uncle got killed in a motor accident, I thought that the city was a place one can survive easily but then life of the poor is the same no matter where you are but one thing that is constant is the grace of God which never changes.It is for everyone no matter your class, creed and race.

I labored in the city for three years but at a time felt that there was no God.

"Even if there was, it doesn't exist for my family." I toiled day and night in the farm and in the poultry to make ends meet perhaps he is sleeping,i mean God,it seem that he has slumbered.

Happiness is not my portion if i must be honest.At 18,i looked ten years older than my age mates. Evidence of my daily dose of hard labor.


He is sleeping

He has slumbered

Where is my prayer going

I have prayed all the prayers

Yet there is no answer

Where will i cast my burden

There is something called Rainbow.

We all have our rainbow,some people see theirs at birth,some at old age,some see theirs some time in their lives but the fact is that,we all have our rainbow.Some of us work hard towards it,some get to it with tears and tribulations.

It comes to those felt abandoned at God's time, a day came in my life and i saw my rainbow,it is the appointed day and the stone the builder rejected became the chief corner stone.

He said to me...

Oh my son i know that you are there
I am the God who made you
Say your suffering is a curse i am ready to lift it
Say your toiling is a curse i am ready to drop it
But if you look at your life
You will see that you are the shining star
But nothing good comes so easy
And it takes a cross to wear the crown
You are the chief corner stone
The stone the builders rejected
It is a promise for you and it is your destiny

Chorus: Glorify God in every situation because he is the giver of life and giver of riches, he knows your worries and grieves so at his own time, riches will come to you and you will forever be blessed and he will make you the chief corner stone.

It is not a surprise what he did for me
Because it is written in the Bible that i will progress
Say my Suffering was a curse he was ready to lift it
Say Mom's toiling was a curse he was ready to drop it
And when Dad was stressed he gave us comfort
My Lord never forsake his own people
At his own time, his blessings flows for all
It is not by power but by his mighty grace
He will wipe your tears just like mine
And People will recognize you
It is a promise for you and nothing can change it

Chorus: Glorify God in every situation because he is the giver of life and giver of riches, he knows your worries and grieves so at his own time, riches will come to you and you will forever be blessed and he will make you the chief corner stone.

My mouth cannot proclaim what he has done for me
I was mocked at by people who today call me a prince
It is the lord's doing and am grateful for it
Say my suffering was a curse he has lifted it
Oh say our grieves were curse he has banned them
I will forever praise our Lord
Praise him for making me the chief Corner stone
The stone the builders rejected is now the Chief Corner stone
It is my destiny and no one could stop it
Praise him, praise him Praise our Lord
Because he has recognized me

The chief corner stone
The shining star
All came to be

On the appointed day
Brother you have your own day
No matter what you are going through

He never sleeps and he never slumbers

He never tire of hearing our prayers

Chorus: Glorify God in every situation because he is the giver of life and giver of riches, he knows your worries and grieves so at his own time, riches will come to you and you will forever be blessed and he will make you the chief corner stone.


God never sleep...

      Sometimes I have felt that God went fishing . It takes a while to see God sometimes.

      rossi, my brother, i can truly identify with this, and i thank you for reminding me. i too had a similar life, and if it weren't for god, i would not be alive today to read this. he comes to us, not in the time that we want, but in the time he knows we need him the most. i tend to forget that from time to time, and then he sends someone like you to remind me. thank you for being his messenger and for reminding me. your sister in christ. kgthekj
