W-hen the fullness of time had come, Jesus was born behind an Inn in a cave-like stable.
I-n the Inn there was no room for the Son of God, no room for the Saviour of men.
S-tar was shining so bright above the stable for the shepherds to find their way to Him.
E-ven angels proclaimed His birth to those shepherds "Unto you is born this day."
M-anger is where Mary and Joseph first laid him. It was filled with hay.
E-very animal there must have known that their Creator had come that day.
N-o one knew the depth of love God had, to give His Son to dwell among men.
S-ame star guided three kings from the Orient, who studied the stars and heavens.
T-hese wise men from the East came saying "Where is He that is born King"
I-n their hands they brought him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrr.
L-ike these three wise men, wise men still seek him today!
L-ove is the reason that God sent His only Begotton Son into the world to save us.
S-eeking for you and me, yes God was seeking for us because we had left Him.
E-veryone, yes, all we like sheep have gone astray. Everyone to his own way.
E-ach one has to make his on decision to follow Him or not to follow Him.
K-ing, born to be a King. King of the ages. King of the past. King of the future.
H-eaven, He came from Heaven to earth to show us the right way.
I-niquity, the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
M-elody, He gives us a sweet melody, we sing many songs of praise to Him.
T-ree, A Christmas tree, the love that Jesus had for us, to die on a tree.
O-nly one life and how soon it passes. Only in life can we accept His Love.
D-eliverance, He came from Heaven to preach deliverance to the captives.
A-cknowlege Him and accept Him. Behold now is the accepted time.
Y-ou, Yes, this Christmas Love was for You. Will You accept this love?
For Brian Strands Christmas Love contest.
O~n occasion, the mind accretes to, "the hurt," when facing
V~icissitudes; blinded by, "the better nature," causing to
E~fface the focus from the Architect while simultaneously
R~aising questions why. Impatience encourages the
C~ollaboration of misery to consult with those of the same mind.
O~nly then to find temporary pleasure due to humanly clocks power.
M~entally drained by dint of attacks upon attacks; seemingly to be
I~nsufferable and impregnable. Though the Architect,
N~ever vanishes and will never vanish from the scene. So,
G~ive and release all apprehension with entire trust.
S~torms will arise from daybreak to nightfall. It must be remembered the
A~rchitect of whom in total control oversees misery so
N~ever question the authority. Become courageous and
D~etermined that, "This Too Shall Pass." Be conscious of
S~trength, wisdom and knowledge evolving afterwards.
T~oday, focus on the size of the Architect and Not
O~n what the mind can't do. Always
R~emain prayerful and faith filled.
M~ust never ignore the Architect of whom created life's puzzle
S~hifting all elements of sand in place from day to day.

how you made it through my friend
all the heart ache that was shared
never alone as your burdens they bared
know that everytime you faltered
someone was kneeling at an altar
giving love the best way they knew
in constant prayer all while you grew
vain were there attempts to keep you down
insecurities as we looked all around
nearer my God to thee was your prayer
give him your love and he'll always be there
Day in and day out be thou my guide
and shelter me from my own pride
you will be my God forever by my side

I'm not the greatest of all-times, but when I'm done,
I'll be an all time great in this lifetime of mine
Like the late great who came before my time
I will breed a new lifeline, that will breathe life like march of dimes
My story lines, will bring truth life; like troops who fight
Overseas, for rights of those who believe that death is life
Now that ain't right!
As the rich is getting richer, eating fillet me-non, while we barely feeding our appetite
Night after night
Survival has waged a war that gave us no choice but to battle and fight
Although, we'll be all right
They say we a dying breed, but that ain't right
Instead we're the light to a lying greed
That will enlighten life to a brand new seed
A man of God indeed
Freed from the Son that bleeds
Like the summer breeze
He's the sum that equals the amount of air I breathe
The air that please
A satisfaction like the birds and the bees
My word's words are the keys
That will fornicate with the mind and give birth to a seed
A seed of social change, that'll change our social economy
So shall our comradery
That will bring comfort to a struggling society
A synonym...similar to a civilization seeking for unity
Unifying the physics of theory
That seeks to explain the synopsis of a dying philosophy
Similar to the Cosby
X-cept my scrip-tic will speak more about our reality
Like life's calamity
And everything else in life that's destroying us systematically
However, I've discovered a system
That can mathematically destroy ignorancy
And turn our state of mind intellectually
I elect that He (God) selects me to be
And be that man who may lead this community
So that they (My Peoples) may commute with me
En-route to a destination, destine towards our destiny
Like we were destine to be
We were meant to be "Great" like the late great that came before we.
Because we are...
The reflection where perfection gave birth to the definition of greatness
Where great means Competent, Skilled, Well Informed, and Tremendous
Our potentials are endless
And only we not even the enemy can put an end to this
So it's time we put a stop to this
The biggest enemy of self
And that's envy and jelousness
Cause after this is Heaven or Hell and that's all there is
A promised made sealed with a kiss
Is the next best thing since "In the beginning"
In the first chapter of the first verse in Genesis!
Judas betrayed Jesus’s whereabouts
End, was near
Son of God, knew this
Universe of the Son of the Divine Father, restored
Sins of man forgiven, Prince of our Universal domain, alive in the hearts of his children
T houghtfully open heart in thankfulness
H onoring God for graciousness, unlimited access
A nd remeber all things in appreciativeness
N ot forgetting air we breath, blue sky we have in excess
K nights and princesses; children of the Living God
S ing a joyful song praising Him don't put on grand facade
G ive of yourself in thanks and rejoice in His love
I nvite the Holy Spirit to dwell within your heart dove
V ictory can be yours each step of the way my friend
I f time in God's presence in praise and worship daily spend
N ow is the time in His presence and purpose to remain
G ratitude said for all of life's pleasures even life's pain.
S tillness and quiet each day spend time thank God for each and everyone
This is a combination Acrostic and couplets..
My understanding that Acrostics do not rhyme but mine is actually couplets written in poulter's measure..A person who sold eggs would sometimes give a dozen eggs for a price and sometimes if the hens were laying extra good a person would get 14 eggs of the same price..Lucky them..So 12/14 in rhyming couplets..

Am I the only one who's feeling there is something very wrong with all of this ,
I can't seem to get anybody to listen not even when I raise my fist.
How can they not see what I see ,has everybody lost thier mind I say,
Why can't they see what it is that is making them act this way.
Have you taken a look around to see there's something that has changed,
When you look into peoples eyes Lord how you can see the rage.
No compassion for thier fellow man as if they have never ever cared,
For the future of mankind and how we all should be aware.
Saw a friend of mine the other day he was acting a little strange ,
I can't help but wonder just when , how , and who's the blame.
This power and greed is consuming us all we just can't seem to stop
Stepping on our brothers & sisters as we race to the top.
Where's the love ,the kindness ,the hope and faith we use to live by,
How we allowed ourselves to sink so low I' will never know why.
Still I will contunue to spread the word which has always been,
Be good and love one another as you are learning not to sin.
Please don't be another wreck that has been pushed to the side ,
If you' listen to the one and only word you will know why.
We will all band together so we can stand tall and free,
It is one simple word and that is love how could you nor see.

I- nvited followers kindly and warmly to her house.
A-fter baptism, she opened her home to God's people.
God has blessed me
In this last year
Very very much;
In every day
Nothing was lacking
God made a way
Thanks, Lord, for grace
Happiness and joy
All from the depths of Your love;
Never forsaking me
Keeping and guiding me
Seeking me out from above

Just one more hit.
Everyone else is stoned and wasted beyond help.
Sorry God, I tried to contain myself.
Uh, what's that over there?
Someone brought ecstasy!
Hey, maybe I could try some. Get high, let my imagination flow like never before.
Right...I'm supposed to be a "model Christian".
I don't see how anyone could care at this point in my life.
Seriously though? Who can even see me?
Thank you Jesus for blankets,
So you can't see me and banish me to the Lake of Fire.
Anyway, mmm I see a cute butt over there,
Eh, I'll tap that later, I don't feel so hot...Nighty Night.
May I ask where I am?

Fighting back the tears of happiness she has graced me with

How I can forget all the love you showed me? When you
would have been prefect for me to love forever. Only
now I realize that God answered my prayers alittle to
late for any kind of future for us.
If only you came into my life earlier. We would have
had the greatest love that's ever been known. Instead
of me having to let you go and just walk away.
Wanting more then anything to change some of the things I did for the love of money. Even though the world says they forgive me for chasing money. But at the cost of losing Your love forever.
Always trying to forget all the times you were there. When no one else was. Giving me support even when I didn't deserve it. Showing me love when only God could and never being ashamed of me.
Million of psalms-poems are dedicated to my favorite artist
Year by year, admirers and followers are on spiral increase
From formless void, He created one earth of which we live
Abundantly wonderful nirvana to grow and be productive
Vegete to give - breathe life to His ultimate art: man
Orderly according to His likeness and His image stand
Richness from talents and intelligence to him He span
Invisible He may seem to be but everywhere one can see
Ten thousand more reasons to thank Him, don't you agree?
Enthroned majestically above He holds our life's' key
Incredibly awesome with His deep rooted love, His only
Son: Jesus Christ, He endearingly send and ransomed
Gracefully even above all our rudeness and inequities
Obsolete He disregards to His eyes all are specialties
Dear, concur with me our God is the greatest artist.

I thought by now that I would have
traveled down the aisle of matrimony
I thought by now that a silver band would
have been placed upon my finger
I thought by now that there would have
been well wishes and a honeymoon
I thought by now that there would be, well
you know how it goes
Well, his ways are not my ways, his
thoughts are not my thoughts
It's all about his timing
So, I'll wait with the thoughts that God
loves me so much that he has kept
me for that special someone
What does perfect mean?
Having what we want?
Seeing all things seen?
You may boast what you do
When others aren't so great
Doesn't mean they're weaker than you
Get your mind from that path
Stopping curiosity that may cause sin
Is what should happen
Things you stop to trade God in
It's not a test to be so good
Once we've departed from our skins
Our time will come to accept such gift
So stop and remove those pins
There's plenty of time till you're there

WE ARE FREE INDEED

Hop scotch begins our childhood lives,
Or cooties take control.
Liking someone is against kids rules.
Yes, we start out innocent and free.
Soon thereafter we grow up.
Preparing for the real world.
I went on the path of faith.
Really digging deeper into It.
I confessed my wrongdoings.
Today I get filled with Him and his…
C onsider how unique God made MAN
A dding vision and emotion, there IS
S o much man has invented and MADE,
T hose raw ingredients mixed IN.
N ever picture a big eye in the sky, GOD'S
E specially not a bloated brain, Love is his IMAGE
T ake care to nourish, preserve, AND
S ustain your body. It is his LIKENESS.
Once God was in crafting mood,
He had to gift something precious to the world.
And the Imagination Bee had gone far to play.
The God was blank.
So he took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need.
Then the God combined these qualities.
And there was nothing more to add.
He looked at it,
And knew His masterpiece was complete.
He called it ... Dad,
And sent it on Earth.
Molded from the best God has for humanity,
Offering your time, your love, even your sanity.
Trusting in Him to keep us safe from the unkown,
Honoring God with your life and love you have shown.
Enhancing my life with all the prayers offered up,
Requesting nothing in return for filling up my cup.
To my mom
With frost in the air soon St. Nick will be here
Images of sparkling lights and happy merriment so far
Now tis the season for bob-sledding and presents so fair
Trinkets, reindeers, presents and singing to sweet baby Jesus
Eternal love to one and all for we all are blessed with joyous
Reunions and enjoying the coldness tis winter for St. Nick's cheer.

Hark! He is the most high and holy God
Ave! the humble young Christ, hung roughshod
Look at his hands – holding spiritual health
Listen to his heart – host of common wealth
Eureka! how we long for - Haven of hope
Lo! the Harbor, when in hell’s hole we grope
Utopia! heaven - our eternal home
Jesus, the Hunter, the Helper, Shalom!
Amen! He halts us in the heat of haste
Hallelujah! if you hunger to be graced
As we celebrate Easter 2014
Give those in this world peace each with a few friends.
Ordain those that embrace differences within each other.
Deliver the world from the darkness of hate.
Isolating the world from one another will lead to death.
Spread the seeds of thankfulness, hope and dreams.
Let them remember the gifts, blessings and lessons in life.
Occupy their hearts with a promise of a life with increase.
Victory begins with the purging of envy and selfish ambitions.
Eternal life begins with trust and loving one another.
Edward J Ebbs
If the days seem too long to bear
You should call on God, he is always there.
Need someone to talk to?
A person who you know will always be true?
Friend, talk to jesus, he will deliver you
I'm struggling with doubt and sorrow
Sailing through this world is harder than I thought it would be
Right in front of me lies tomorrow
Behind me are the mistakes, always taunting me
Like the seprent did to Eve
A woman was walking, searching for "The Healer"
Bridge after bridge she crossed, with no one there to help her
Over and over she fell, growing weaker with every step
Troubled with her sin, she wondered, will God's promise be kept
Water! She found water, and the Master was waiting, and into his arms, the woman lept.
I am the Lord your God, and I'm so glad you found me.
Will I heal you? Of course, my child.
Ease your mind, little one. Your soul is now set free
Your heart has been hurt and you've been sick for a while
Mind you, I'm your father. I've been with you, mile after mile.

Nobody know the pain in

Christmas Love Came Down
Christmas cheers chime as chubby cheeked children anticipate and wait.
Hoping that they have lived well enough for presents up to this date.
Reality relies on the realizations that love from parents and God give joy. Really!
Infinite love shares Santa tales enticing dreams of toys for girls and boys.
Dream-like love shows as Santa sits in malls with smiles; children sharing hopes.
Tantalizing wistfulness wanders through young hearts that overtake rational scopes.
Mesmerizing melodies with memories of merriments or maladies gone mad.
Alas, across all aquifers amid alluring skies, altered human awareness seizes…
Santa Clause, a man whose love, once endured the gravest times. Image, freezes!
Legendary love embraced. He lived a life of giving to humble hearts. He eased fears.
Oh, how his happy helping hallowed our Lord and Savior. Saving secret tears.
Very well, Saint Nicholas followed teachings and examples of his Lord, our Lord.
Every night, out of sight, he would secretly deliver. Food and gifts all poverty adored.
Caring and sharing He gave of his wealth to his fellow man with needs.
Almighty God looked down and blessed him more for his good deeds.
Miracles and hope uplifted kindhearted men who in those days joined in.
Eliminating selfish ways, demonstrating love like Christ had shown on earth to men.
Deliverer exemplified by the actions of one caring man. A man, like Christ with myrrh.
Offerings of love, gifts given celebrate Jesus Christ, our Savior's holy birth.
We show our love for Him when unto others we, like Him, help them abide.
Needing no glory for the good we give, since Christ came down. His love thrived.

Odes of rainbows that brim my eyes
Yielding hope in your embrace
Emitting galaxies of light.
Let me cuddle to your breast. Tell me taste
Again your loveliness, keeling me with delight.
I am a ship alone on a lonely sea
Navigating rocks of memories
Engulf my sail, I seek an harbor of only thee
Wet upon the night your touch I feel, histories
Enshrouded in time. Wake me like a lyre. Set wise
Litany of songs on my sails long yarn
Lit me with the sparkle of your star stunning eyes
Irridiscent candle of my heart, the horn
Natal to our pain, silent where our bows thrust
Garners courage fore the shimerring main
Truth will triumph in the heart that trust
Only in God through the savage night of rain
Nature made us agree, but God set our destiny.
Love is God and God alone who died
Offering himself, cross gifted, self denied
Vow paying esteemer, making low high
Eternal giver, repenting no gift, you I glorify.
Love has no meaning in dictionaries, no place
Oystered in feelings like princely pearls
Valued in the market of the common race
Each man in himself alone defines his content by grace
Love is not the feeling we feel when desire peels
Only God in man recovers the power of love
Vessels are we filled where the spirit keels
Emotions in the heart. Only God is love.
Each secret name of God, given to
Mankind for protection:
Angels descend on the wings of syllables,
Nothing can be more powerful over spiritual warfare than
Uttering His Holy names with deep veneration;
Enough to invite the rays of the New Sun, that's ready to
Lift the World to the heights of Heaven.

Needless to say you are going down a road that
Ends in dreadful disaster.
After numerous warnings about your life, you still chose the action of
Running the streets like there is no tomorrow.
Darling dear, you’re going to get it from God before the
End of this year. You will experience an apparent,
Awful abrasion that you are self-inflicting by action of
The willful disobedience of God, the Father.
He told you what he wanted you to do. Since birth, for your assignment,
Everything has been laid out on a table made especially for you.
Xcept you actually doing it.
People are holding you back. You give them more potential and kinetic
Energy to do it by listening to them. You’re
Repeating the same silly stupid activities,
Involving women. These repeated activities are going result in almost
Ending your life. Some who don’t have God in their lives are
Not able to deal with what you to women in a positive way. He’s
Calling your name out in a unique way, because you are indeed unique, He’s calling
Extremely loud, but your head and ears are too busy stuck in Satan’s rain clouds.
God has not given us a spirit of fear
In each of us there are gifts
For us to stir up
The gifts that God has given you needs to be
Do not neglect the spiritual gift you have given to you and confirmed by prophetic
words when the elders laid hands on you. I Timothy 4:14
Therefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God which is in thee
through the putting on of my hands. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but
of power and of love and of a sound mind. II Timothy 1:6-7
The Parables of the Hidden Treasure and the Pearl
44 The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man
found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and
bought that field
]Again the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls When
he found one of great value he went away and sold everything he had and
7 to 10 I once thought these things were valuable but now I consider them
worthless because of what Christ has done. Yes everything else is worthless
when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord For his
sake I have discarded everything else counting it all as garbage so that I could
gain Christ and become one with him. I no longer count on my own
righteousness through obeying the law rather I become righteous through
faith in Christ For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith
I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from
When I thought love was dead,
God sent me you.
God showed me
that he wanted to be happy.
God sent me you.
God sent me a great person.
I want to live for eternity with you.
I will go through the good and bad times with you.
I will even go to the end of the earth,
Long as I'm with you.
I will never stop loving you.
Even if hell freezes over and the world ends.
Even if will the only one in the world,
I want to be with you for eternity.
I can see us growing old together.
And dying together.
I don't care where we are,
Long as I'm with you.
Wherever you go, I go.
Wherever I go, you go.
Will be glued together.
Will be chained together.
Will be one together.
My love will be like a candle that never burns out.
My love will be like a light that never goes dark.
My love will be like an eternal love for eternity.
My love will never run out.
My love will never dry out.
My love will never end.
I'll be there, when you're sick.
I'll be there, when you're tired.
I'll be there, when you're angry.
I'll be there, when you're in the hospital.
I'll be there, when you're hurt.
I'll be there, when you're alone.
I'll be there, when you need some one to love.
I'll be there, when you need a friend.
I'll be there, when you comfort.
I'll be there, when you need some one to talk to.
I'll be there, when you need some one to hold.
I'll be there, when you need me.
We can share God together.
We can be like my great grandparents.
Our love will never end.
And we will always have God in our hearts.
You know that you should be here
On your way to doing what you’re called to do gaining an
Understanding of Biblical truths to aid you.
Well I’m doing that on my own. Too busy
In the presence of God to
Speak with you on the phone
He wants you. I don’t want you sometimes. I don’t know why He does sometimes in
The human eyes of mine.
He knows what is best for,
All of us but the big choice,
To make for our lives is left up to us.
Yes to God and no to Satan,
Or no to God and yes to Satan.
Understanding and application of His principles is the key to
Walking in your destiny.
Everyday of your life is numbered; don’t’ waste time,
Running in Satan’s circles.
Everyday is a winding road filled with God’s wonder along with,
Hard trials to keep our faith stronger.
Each day is a blessing from God that we don’t deserve.
Running from God causes pain that’s severe.
Everyday you continue run having false fun but I just know you wish you were here.
O pen your heart to God
the enemy comes to kill steal and destroy, he tries to trip us up in many ways
if something was on your mind wouldn't you love to be able to push a panic button for help to
make the feelings go away, imagine this is your panic button GOD will take away all our
fears all our panic all our frustrations, when any bad feelings come just Stop and think open
heart and pray, and it wont be long before the enemy is long on his way, God is the answer
to everything all we need to do is just stop and let him help in the good times as well as the
bad. the enemy loves it when we Hungy, Angry, Lonly or Tired, God taught me today how to
stop before being brought to a Halt, satan bites the dust again, he lost I still stand strong and
Hallelujah Christ Arose
Heavenly hosts and angels with God sing.
Man, enlightened, living Truths, great joy brings.
Jesus Christ was strong; so, He came to earth.
Living to die a mortal death since birth.
Everlastingly outshining evil.
Loving all peoples and teaching the right,
Understanding God’s ways, He brought new light.
Inuring to us freedom from sins, blames.
A loving Savior, Jesus Christ sustains.
He pleased our Father and praised His name.
Charity was by His examples taught.
Heavenly Father, through Christ, mercy wrought.
Remembering Father and eternal loss.
Instead of self-love, He died on the cross.
Subjected to Satan, Christ overcame.
To earn back our lives, steady love remains.
Atonement for sin was paid on that hill.
Reliving in heaven, He won God’s will.
Omnipotent love He gave us, forever.
So we could live in Heaven together.
Eternal death by God and faith, fettered.

Poetic form: Acrostic
Happiness is what you take away from your life as good.
All things must have a plus and a negative to survive.
Prophecy says God allowed evil to exist, destroy it he could.
Pure goodness without evil will someday arrive.
I wish that only positive things were plausible now.
Never to know hunger, pain, any suffering any more.
Each of us would never know sadness, you say Wow!
Since there would be no negative, how would it score?
Since only joy existed, we would not know of contentment.
I do not think god had this planned for us while on Earth.
Salvation is yours of worth, your release from this abatement
Highest God from high Sinai thundering
Offering and sacrifice suddenly suspended
Light and lightening in heaven flashing
Yahweh the breach of earth has mended
Sabbath from creation's seventh day given
Adam first of man by its presence blest
Bringing body and spirit in line with heaven
Blessed to share in the glad Creator's rest
Apostles everywhere celebrate this sign
Tabernacling the mind that only God creates
Holy the rest we share shows the divine
Destiny for man is in the image of this giver
Almighty life bringer, lover and restorer
Yahweh it's your celebration manifested power.
Gusts of wind
Enter the storm
At God knows where
Streams of rain
Oh the thunder roars again
Run for cover
Master shelter me there
(Saw Jesse Duplantis on Daystar TV and he used Mark 4: 35 forward as his scripture to bring
his message. I have been having storms in my life. Also several years ago we had a
tornado to go by our house leaving damage to trees,etc. but no injuries or home damage but
I had had to be at the hospital for several days and nights with my husbands aunt and was
totally exhausted and my husband opened the day when wind hit the house and I told him to
close the door and go to sleep. The next morning we saw the extent of the damage and I
know that God had sheltered me there.)
Thank you God for the many blessings
Heaven is uplifting and enormous teaching and learning
Ate beautiful turkey meal with all the fixings
Need to hear and answer of prayers
Kiss the cooked that prepared the meal
Sit down with family
Get-together and fellowship
In love and memory of those that fight oversees
view of butter laden turkey
Impressive memories and meaning
Notwithstanding numerous bounty
Giving thanks to God for he made us
Delightful and delectable feast
Yesterday, today and future
Jehovah once sent down his only true son for the price of our sin to be relieved
Eternally promising his salvation to every Christian that will simply believe
Symbolizing God in human form, he walked with us here in the shoes of man
Understanding about our temptations - yet pure and righteous he would stand
Sacrificing it all just to save our lost souls - upon the cross his own life he gave
Creating hope for every sinner that is blessed by his mercy when they are saved
Holy is his sweet and precious name that really must not ever be taken in vain
Read all about him and what he stood for - It is found in the Bible written plain
Instrumentally was used by our Father above to give everyone a fighting chance
Saving our sins if we will just ask and repent - He forgives without second glance
Testament for believers with faith in the Lord - eternal life is what we will soon find
But our time's running out to get right with God and no one wants to be left behind
Searching for some answers while constantly trying to ease the pain
Inquiring straight to God above, I ask him who was to blame
Despite of our imperfections, he reassured that it was his call
She was needed back up in Heaven to assist him when we fall
Sympathetic to our suffering, he tries to wipe the tears away
Understand this was his plan for she was never meant to stay
Remembering her is bittersweet, as we are reminded of our great loss
Virtually nothing helps other than knowing Christ died for us upon the cross
Instead of drowning in sorrow and pain I will try to look for the light
Visions of happy reunions ahead help to make the future seem bright
Occasionally I still have bad days; although, they get further in between
Recovery is a slow, steady process that's possible only with God on my team
Holding on to everything that come your way.
Well I’m bringing you a message on this blessed day.
Hurt, rejection or jealousy whatever is holding you back. Let Go and start fighting
Let Go of all the past get rid of its fast.
Start living for today, let God usher you his way.
Wasting precious time and effort seeking things that can’t prosper you. Are you
without a case?
Who want to go back anyway? For the promises of God is ahead.
You have something you didn’t know you had, you have a promise given from our
Father, so don’t bother to hang on to anything that’s not of him, it just won’t work.
So stop hanging to binders and hook up with finders and seekers. Seeking God
and looking forward to his promises. Letting God lead the way this day and all
the days to come, for Christ is calling us one by one.
