Poem: Find Real Contentment

One of the secrets of successful living,

is recognizing Christ as your source.

For only His divine principles assure

that Life stays on the Kingdom’s course.

For happiness will never be found

in the possession of earthly things.

The deepest of joy resonates when…

it makes one’s heart sincerely sing.

A genuine relationship with Christ

inspires one’s spirit to mightily soar.

With Faith, we are more than conquerors;

nothing is better or…

Poem: Spiritual Values

Genuine spiritual values

bring us both light and joy,

when we belong to Christ -

as His faithful girls and boys.

This is possible when we lean

on the foundation of Scriptures.

For true Life can be found within

the Kingdom’s wisdom and virtues.

Exercising faith will be our key

for staying on our holy path.

Remember that the wages of sin,

can not escape Jehovah’s wrath.

We need to accept the gift of Grace

and be submerged…

Poem: Used For His Glory

The Body is composed of many parts

and it needs your gifting of talents;

open up your spirit and heart…

to provide God with holy service.

Don’t waste your earthly talents

with hardness of heart or disservice.

Find your identity in Christ!

Feed on the fullness of His Word

and enjoy His eternal Life!

Become part of Heaven’s story,

by allowing yourself to be…

Used for His Glory.

Poem: Spiritual Secret (Power of Words)

Most fail to understand the spiritual secret,

regarding the true power of the human tongue.

Proper and improper usage of its strength, allows

one to create consequences, that are far flung.



Consider the idea of words as ‘containers’,

housing both creative and destructive powers.

For even God is bound (Scripturally) by His Word.

Learn to alter your speech, starting this very hour.



Although you’re free to choose what is…

Poem: She Gave More

One ordinary day at the temple,

Jesus purposed to watch people go by;

He observed their heart attitudes,

without them… even knowing why.

He watched the gait of the proudly rich,

dressed in their expensive clothes;

they jingled a portion of their wealth

and drew attention with uplifted noses.

Christ properly noticed and judged the scene

of them depositing their offering coins,

disappointed that they collected their reward

(of pride)…

Poem: Called to Worship (XII)

We are still called to worship;

open hearts and voices, glorify His Name!

We acknowledge the Almighty

and His Kingdom… we freely proclaim!

We are called to worship,

knowing that we are His Children.

We have been given The Scriptures

and holy tools for overcoming sin.

We continue to worship Him,

Whose Love was revealed in Christ Jesus.

We will continue to Seek His face

and to have His Love perfected in us.

We intentionally…

Poem: Nothing Without God

To the uncircumcised heart,

a real relationship with God

is not only strange and peculiar,

it’s unbelievably… odd.

For what role does Mankind play,

that Jehovah is mindful of us?

How could the embodiment of Love

allow us to martyr Christ Jesus?

Unlike the angels of the heavenly realm,

we’re made in the image of God Himself.

Christ was not crucified for angels, but…

to insure a way of bringing us back to Himself.

For we’ve been given…

Poem: Those

Help me Lord, to acknowledge those

who labor within my sphere of influence,

for they too deserve my prayers for them.

Help me Lord, to lovingly admonish those

who lack a proper sense of discipline,

for like me, they require spiritual guidance.

Help me Lord, to quietly comfort those

who seek cooperation and genuine fairness,

that serves all of my neighbors equally.

Help me Lord, to forgivingly tolerate those

who are stronger or weaker…

Poem: Human Veil

Oh the irony of this mortal situation,

being encased in this temporary flesh.

For I’m momentarily bound to this earth,

although I anticipate my heavenly journey.

At the moment of Christ’s crucifixion,

the temple curtain was torn in two by God,

ripping it from the top to its bottom,

which signified His personal invitation…

for unhindered, one-on-one interaction.

And yet I yearn to feel His presence,

knowing that my sin keeps us separated.…

Poem: A Serving of Proverbs 16

The best way to demonstrate wisdom,

is speak with kindness and insight.

Develop the habit of faith and prayer

to truly strengthen one’s inner light.

Hidden intentions of men’s hearts,

are plainly visible before the Lord.

Honorable actions with Godly answers

show how one remains in holy accord…

from committing one’s life unto Him.

Understanding self’s true motivation,

while allowing God to guide one’s…

When you're crying, your vision is blurred.

My next birthday must be a very important one. I've been getting a lot of mail saying I must reply before my birthday. It's from life insurance companies, and they are saying I'll soon be at an age when many life insurance companies will begin to look at me differently. 



I have only until my birthday to accept their offers.



So what?



I already have a life insurance policy, and I'm not too affected by the anxiety inducing sales pitches that, seemingly, are meant… Continue

Nothing but the Gospel: Our Only Hope

Nothing but the gospel gives us hope.  Upon reading Paul’s second letter to the Corinthian church, that hope stands strong, because it resides in Jesus.  Here is what Paul writes,

Since we have the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, ‘I believed and so I spoke,’ we also believe, and so we also speak, knowing that He who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into His presence.  For it is all for your sake, so that as…

Poem: Another Season of Spring

Another season of Spring is here

and again I’m one with the shiny rake.

Will this new tool survive the year,

before in my hand, it eventually breaks?

These annual attempts of mastering physics

of “leaf dynamics”, during the removal of leaves,

is usually a pleasant task of physical joy,

since my searching spirit is at rest and ease.

However, the annoyance of my insect entourage

of gnats, no-see-ums, mosquitoes and black flies

distracts…

Poem: Called to Worship (VII)

It’s the dawning of a new day

and my heart can’t help but sing;

Your grace and tender mercies flow

from the eternal realm of my King.

Shine the brightness of Your Light,

deep into the blackness of my soul;

direct my steps away from sin’s abyss

with Your standard of self-control.

Illuminate my spirit with the radiance

of Truth, that’s found within Your Word.

Continue to educate and edify me daily

with messages that were previously…

Poem: Armor of God

Clothe yourself in the full armor of God

and be able to withstand the Devil’s schemes;

know that he’s only the father of lies,

looking to destroy your earthly dreams.

Cover yourself with Christ’s Breastplate

of Righteousness and protect your torn heart;

your essence has been purchased for His Kingdom,

meaning that you’re meant… to be set apart.

Gird your waist with the Belt of Truth

and stand firm with integrity and honesty;

don’t…

Poem: Comfort Zone

O my Lord, long ago I accepted the idea

of being open and accepting of change.

My resistance was ultimately futile, when…

Salvation caused my life to be rearranged.

For my perspective was spiritually altered

and my heart was subtly humbled by You;

when ready, I sought after Your Kingdom,

knowing that I would remain in Your view.

Know that there can be joy in serving others,

which is complemented with learning opportunities;

depths of…

Poem: Come, See This Man

It started out, as an ordinary day,

with a daily trip… to the local well;

without much expectation, I met a Man

from a small town, located in Israel.

Come, see this Man…

Well, I must admit, He was the first

to observe me as a Child of Abraham;

knocking down my personal defenses

was Christ, the Son of the Great I Am.

Come, see this Man…

He spoke with both grace and intimacy,

and soon I was fully revealed before Him;

He…

Poem: Climate for Miracles

Never doubt the Love of God and His promises;

for with Jehovah, all things are eternally possible.

Nothing is beyond the grasp of His hand, since He is…

Creator of the Universe and Master of the impossible.

Therefore, chose to believe in heavenly miracles

and honestly respect His “Law of Agreement”.

Discard spiritual doubts and confess your sin;

enlarge your faith and renew your commitment.

Speak continually against the mounting issues of…

Poem: Steps of Faith

Have you begun an exciting, new journey,

from stepping in a new direction of faith?

Have you found your way out of the wilderness?

Remember your covering of Christ’s righteousness.

For you’ve been given ample opportunities…

to find your identity within His Kingdom.

Have you figured out by logic and reason,

how to enjoy spiritual fruits of a new season?

The secret is to spend quality time with The Word

and feed your spirit with His foundational…
