My Heart is Amazed

My heart is amazed by His boundless compassion
My heart is in awe of the love of the Lord
The hand of His mercy endureth forever
What riches of kindness in heaven are stored!

My heart is amazed at the sight of creation
My heart is in awe of the works of the King
The fountains and river, the depth of the ocean,
The rock and the trees of His greatness shall sing!

My heart is amazed on the height of the mountain
My heart is in awe of the stars in the sky
Unmoving, unchanging, the Lord is eternal
Though years of the mortal so quickly fly by

My heart is amazed by the lamb and the lion
My heart is in awe of the birds in the air
Created for man by the hands of the Master
The heights and the depths of his dwelling to share

My heart is amazed by the King of the nations
My heart is in awe of His death on the tree
The Lamb that was Slain, by the word of the Father
Arose from the grave my Redeemer to be!

REFLECTION OF AN ANGEL

I saw a reflection of an angel.
It was rather vague yet so real.
It told me a story of sanctity.
It told me a story of aged maturity.
It was beautiful.

I saw a reflection of an angel.
It was rather vague yet so real.
It held out its pure hand.
Reached for a strand of my weary hair.
Swiftly stroked it back and put it in its rightful place.
It was soothing.

I saw a reflection of an angel.
It was rather vague yet so real.
It took my hand and gently clasped it.
Pulled me up to stand on my feet;
And gently whispered…” this is how you start…”
It was strengthening.

I saw a reflection of an angel
It was rather vague yet so real.
It scooped my hands up in the air.
Slightly forced my head to tilt upward;
And with another whisper said..."This is how you surrender
To a much greater purpose”.
It was heartbreaking.

I saw a reflection of an angel.
It was rather vague yet so real.
It gently wiped away a tear.
Washed it away with warm waters.
Gently swiped my face with a towel of hope.
It was awakening. 

I saw a reflection of an angel.
It was rather vague yet so real.
It titled my head towards the mirror.
And gently whispered “this is a story of sanctity…
This is a strand of a life ahead full of exaltation;
A few feet away from healing that inspires;
This is a story of great surrender to pain
And welcoming of inner peace
This is a story of a gentle tear that will forever
Form a river of immersed hope;
It was divine fulfillment.

Snow

Snow sprinkles the ground
 
as delicate as sugar
 
crystallizing the exterior with a romantic heritage
 
only found in the heart of a child's imagination.
 
Like happiness it can melt in your hands,
 
and like happiness it can grow bitter like the ice you slip on
 
Forming miraculously to the curves of the earth
 
hugging till the land soaks in it's providence
 
white like the pages I battle with
 
Falling so passionately you'd think it was falling in love with the ground
 
And when it lands,
 
A blanket of perfection
 
glistening the season to a crisp
 
gently the sun arises
 
"there's no where to go today,
 
I'm just going to sit and enjoy the magic."

The Perfect Painting

*The Perfect Painting*

On a canvas like none other
I began to sculpt all of mankind
I began with a single piece of clay and a thought

A thought of love…

I desired love of unprecedented proportions
So I created the most unparalleled piece of art

I created man…

In 
my
own
image

I took my Creator’s paintbrush
And with just one stroke
My love created you
…Yes you 
And all of mankind

With my heart for creativity in mind
I desired to have a race of people just like me 

A race of gentle-hearted people 
That went about populating the earth
As miniature ME’s
Depositing love flowers
And a sense of security

Then one day a snake came along
He dumped mud upon my canvas
And tried to destroy my masterpiece
He was unsuccessful as you can see
For every time a new day begins
Every time a new sunset or sunrise is shown
It is a gentle reminder that I have won in the end

I Am the master Creator…

I am God…

I am the Author…
I am the Great Painter…

I am a Designer…

And I created you!

So whenever you arise in the morning
And whenever you retire from your long day
Just remember the author and finisher of your faith
Believe on me and you shall have everlasting life!
Love, Jesus Christ

When The Sun Rises

Dear God, when the sun rises,
I can only wish for a better day.
I'm not looking for consolation prizes;
I know life can't go entirely my way.

I just want to love and be loved,
To have hope and a great faith.
Sometimes the choices in life are tough,
After sunrise creates a new day.

Mind and Sound

Only light can penetrate the 
darkness
that resides in the default state 
of mind
I descend from beta to delta 
through
binaural beats; instantly caught 
between frequencies beyond 
time 

I absorb amplitudes of acoustic 
energy
and I learn to just be earth 
Since I am the earth 
and because I am of
the one that is the source of its 
existence, 
I've owned the power of 
omnificence 

I realize now that I AM because
HE is since I am from that, a 
descendant 
Created in the image of a 
thought
and a feeling from the 
Universal Mind
I tune in to this vibration from 
rhythmic
pulse that manipulates 
subconscious minds

Immersed  between 4 and 7 
hertz;
brainwaves halt to a conscious 
sleep
All  chakras are aligned shining 
crown energy 
and now my consciousness 
begins to reap! 
and light begins to penetrate 
the harmonious beams
that were already there
constant and always there 

is now flooded with sound 
patterns
that force brainwaves to submit 
to power
of omnipresent sound that 
always was 
and always will be connected to 
the Source from which I came
so I extend exponentially 
beyond;
physical time and space

I long to embrace the intensity 
of gamma rays
I give way to the coded sounds 
that resonate from the inner 
core
and continue to connect 
through the binaural beats that 
-  
remind me of before

Always familiar but ignored
until found by gaining 
knowledge of self
I listen with the intent to excel 
while reaping an abundance of 
benefits and rewards
Listen!! 
It's already yours

Just reach out and grab it 
as long as intention and ego is 
checked
the universe will correspond 
accordingly
it will deliver a life to you divine 
and orderly
Just listen to the sounds that 
were there from before
They will guide to to the 
vibration from the core
and it will guide you to connect 
directly with the source

Infinite Energy S

Get on your bike and get out of my face it smells of fish and oil on the beach this peachy day cape on my shoulders to fly away up with the seagulls I sh*t on your face Now that the body has been properly buried full of the scars from the wars do I carry I cannot believe you all find me scary I skip full of spirit for despite this I'm still merry For on this day God smiled on me gave me the sign to renew my belief and with his presence I shall achieve an eternal life filled by my infinite energy (S).

WHO AM I BY NAME ALONE

written 10th Aug 2013



I am God's child, first and forever
I am known by many different titles, a daughter
I am a wife
I am a mother
I am a grandmother
I am a poet
I am by several ways, known as a sister
I am an acquaintance
I am a loyal friend
I am a stranger
I am a cousin
I am an Auntie
I am a niece
But who is this person, they all call "Denise?"

She is a child to God
She is a niece
She is a cousin
She is a stranger
She is a loyal friend
She is an acquaintance
She is known to many, a sister
She is a poet
She is a grandmother
She is a mother
She is a wife
She is known as a daughter to many
She is everything, she'd ever dreamed her life to be....
She is happier than she ever imagined possible
SHE IS "DENISE"

The Righteousness Of Love

Love is a wonder shared by one another it's the only reason I'm not six feet under Love in which I believe in a will to sustain I give back to life, now in dormant states of pain The power of Love may not alone be enough locked inside my dreams escape only from above higher than any human being has ever gone before I must have evolved rise above hate, great once more My Father taught me wisdom I am imprisoned no longer now an beast not of burden I am no lion, I am stronger on my shoulder sits twin dragons long awaiting the day evil forces come forth to take what Love is left, away A Hero of Love light are what the world needs angels, not demons exist where ever you believe follow your heart's direction and you shall achieve objects of affection rid of materialistic greed My bright energy has awakened to a fire never consuming the source as the flames just grow higher that is the desire of a product we call Love Fear, the counterpart what I was once made of I am slowly learning how to win when my peace is harder to sharpen so I have given my pen leave the sword has its uses I must say I believe to vanquish the evil in the minds too diseased to serve any purpose except their own selfish ones tomorrow a new day in the clarity of the sun where we two are now one and one done now does bring about a great change lit by the righteousness of Love.

the Rose


                 The Rose innocent white, soft pink, yellows 
                colors touch your soul vibrant red to amethyst

                enhances beauty yet a thorn awaits to break skin
                as life does piercing your heart with a thin pin.

                My life has shed drops of blood through each petal
                 as if in return for the love and beauty you feel

                hence pain underneath patiently waits the bloodletting ~

                The rose symbolizes love yet vulnerable to hold
                for when you open your heart it can be left bleeding

                The best of surgeons can not beat your heart
                It is the inner faith and God himself whom gives strength 

                whispers in your ear you shall live you will exist
                your life meaningful as the water and sun to the rose

                 For I am your God  your existence is not over yet .
                        You must Live ~You must Bloom

Return Of Your King

Reflections of imperfections have shown me a way that I can move mountains through my power of faith even though I can't see him I know he is real through the power of prayer and a Love that I feel It's growing inside me like a flower in bloom shall I reveal my powers or is it too soon I am reading the signs through my darkness I find a reason for belief in the light of mankind that I know shall overcome the greatest of odds the Love I seek amazes me especially through the flaws because now I am inspired through the hero's that bring my throne through the darkness on which I return on as your King.

A Single Leaf Out of A Tree

A single leaf, 
Falls out of a tree above me,
 As it twist and turn, 
The wind blows it in my direction, 
It symbolizes the ending point of my 
struggles and all my pain, 
It tells me that they twist and turn, 
But never remain, 
It takes a sudden fall next to me, 
But why? 
It symbolizes the thought of being 
alone, 
It tells me that someone is always 
by my side, 
As I write, 
The leaf flies away, 
As if it had a huge success in 
incouragement, 
Nature communicates with us in 
many ways, 
Not with words, 
But with a single leaf out of a tree.

Bravery

It's not a lesson to be taught
Or a skill to be acquired
It's the nudge to move forward
Open when the time is right
It's the spirit inside
God leading on the way
On the journey to discover
He is all you need
It's the courage to let go
Say yes instead of no
Reveal what you've been holding back
As Jesus takes the wheel
It's the realization that it doesn't matter
What others think of you
God leads you where you're meant to be
Just allow you to be you
It's the standing up to fear
Proclaiming "fear's not gonna win!"
The battle has been fought too long
Time to let the stalemate end
It's the inspiration you've been holding
For others and for yourself
The light we've been dimming
Rather than shining on His behalf
It's the spontaneity in the decision
To follow His call all the way
Discovering peace in being you
Wide open as the perfect creation you are
The world out there is brutal
But there's a Holy Man holding out His Hand
His bravery now is all we have
But His bravery of love is all we need
May God bless you!

I Know Of Someone Holding Unforgiveness


I Know of Someone Holding Unforgiveness! I know of someone holding unforgiveness! This has led to a life of much bitterness! Toward his brother, he’s held on to a grudge. From his viewpoint, he won’t even “budge.” No matter what God’s word has clearly spoken… He’s walked with a heart that’s been broken! His son prayed that God would speak to him! That he would forgive, so God could heal him! Forgiveness is a powerful thing to do! If you want God’s mercy to flow through you! We’re not called to “hold back,” the love God’s given! Through Christ shed blood… We’re all forgiven! May the love of Christ come and touch us! It’s no secret how much God really loves us! Please come Lord Jesus! And touch our soul! May we express your love, wherever we go! May God’s gentle love, be what always binds us! HIS words; “love one another,” do remind us! By Jim Pemberton

Unknown

Who am I?
Am I defined by what is near in sight?
Am I defined by what I have done,
Or am I defined by what I could become?

Perhaps I'm of no use.
To him, or her, or I, nor you.
Or perhaps I'm too misunderstood to be defined,
And it is something like understanding that comes in time.

And if to the world I'm never shown,
Yet in my own light I've grown and grown,
And so I can know no happiness but my own--
The reason for my smile, to you, will forever be unknown.

I do not pray for the world to know my name.
For it and verse; the letters are the same.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads,
I pray his pain my words to keep. 

Should his eyes rain on my page,
Better tears than storms of rage.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads.
I pray his pain my words to keep.

And if to the world you're never shown,
Yet in your own light you've grown and grown,
And so you know no happiness but your own.
Let the reason for your smile, to you, only be known.

Pink all day

              
               The old cashmere sweater in my cedar chest 
                always warming my soul on a winters day 
                
                Ice skating with your true love hand in hand
                frosty breath brings a warmth to your cheeks


                Anticipating that very first date 
                first glance the color lightens your way 
                
          
                as if Cupid decided this will be a day like no other
                celebrating in stars above Valentine days Forever

             It is the day God took hold of your heart and beat it for you ~

So I am Here

Ok so now that I am here, what do I do? Do I keep going. Do I fly around. Am I sure I am here. Everything is still the same except that, this, and maybe a little bit of that too but I am sure that is normal with life though. So I am searching for the question to the answer of my first question. Yes I am. So now normalities. What is normal? Blue is normal to us under a bright light, green shines better. Which one is real? Choose one. Let us say both. Both is not an option. Let us opt out. Done. Now if we can opt out of the question, why have'nt you?

God, I Need Your Forgiveness


God, I Need Your Forgiveness! God, I need your forgiveness, for things I’ve done! I need to be washed through the blood of your son! Please take away the heartache and pain! Help me to trust you, when I call on your name! May t take each day to really get to know you! And just take the time to say that I LOVE YOU! May my heart be humbled and broken within! And daily trust Jesus as my savior and friend! I’ll always need someone that I can lean on to! I don’t know what I’d do, if I didn’t have you! By Jim Pemberton

For all his brothers and sisters
Caught in traps of never ending sin,

An Ode to LIFE Part 1

An Ode To LIFE


As I lay my head down and start to fall asleep I see myself being carried off to a place and time the place of our Lords birth in Bethlehem of Judea

As in the Bible tells the story of His life and how he lived and died in that human seance and rose on the day He told of

I do not remember being here but I remember the story I was taught so many years ago

As I walk through the streets of Bethlehem I see each scene  and hear  every word as I am learning the story they telling is true

The writer writes of a jealous King  and his way of dealing with his people and of Mary and Joseph who came to Bethlehem to have a child

The story tells of the three wise men  who saw a star in the north and heard of a child  who was born to be the King of the Jews  and come to see and bring Him gifts 

An  angel from the Heavens above came to Mary and Joseph in a dream and told them they had to leave Bethlehem or King Herod would have their son killed 

So they left Bethlehem and went to Egypt and there they lived until King Herod no longer ruled

As I follow along in my dream I see each scene  and hear  every word as I am puzzled by the fact I understand each

I don’t understand why I’m going through this time but I know I must continue on this journey 

As I am pulling through a time where I reach the place of Jesus’ in  Nazareth of Galilee

As I watched Him grow and work in His father's shop I could see the thing in Him that were with me

As I walk along the streets and look around I hear the people talk of a child that speaks of wondrous love that’s all forgiving and of a Father in Heaven that’s loving and true.

The Cross

.                 The cross of Christ
                  wasn't mere slabs
                  of wood nailed to
                   form an addition
but basket for carrying all stained robes
of the world into the
laundry of Mt Calvary
where he washed all clean by his sacred
blood........................his blameless blood
 	              light it really was
                     but made heavy
                     by the load of sin
                     taken upon it so
                      you and I can be
                      forever free
                      same cross             
                      Christians bear
       	     and in his pain
                                       share
                     ours also full
                      with pleasures of doom
that must be disposed of
into Christ's basket that never will be full

Just When It Seems Like Life Is Overwhelming

Just When It Seems Like Life Is Overwhelming! Just when it seems like I’ve faced my darkest night… And things in life, aren’t turning out right… This is about the time, when things are falling apart! And I began to feel a lot of stress in my heart! I run to Jesus! I know that he wants to help me! He’s always here! And promises to never leave me! He sees me, and speaks words of comfort, to follow! He reminds me, that he’ll take care of today and tomorrow! He lets me know that he won’t let go of my hand! Everything I’m going through… He understands! He turns back all of the problems that are overwhelming! And I see what things my life, are becoming! I have fellowship with Jesus! Like I never had before! He’s given to me peace and hope! And much more! I’m glad I have such a wonderful friend like this! His love and joy… I don’t want to miss! Thank you Jesus! For turning my life around! And for plating my life on a solid ground! You’re all I want! And all that I’ve needed! With you as my Lord! My life has been completed! By Jim Pemberton

GOD IS HERE

GOD IS HERE!

Embodied is the mind.
The brain personifies.
I’m alive.
A big girl has become a woman.
The world may say I am nothing.
God says I am somebody.

I climb to ascend.
I went up to come down.
I bend my knees in prayer.
I open my mouth to song.
If I fail in goal, I did try to bring peace within.
Clearly, God and I are in unity.

Safeguarding the things that are important
Making the Lord the highest priority
Wearing the armor of God in all battles, strength is given by Jehovah.

Ascend to climb.
Come down to go up!
On bended knees, pray.
Song comes from mouth.
I shall not fail!
I shall be healed!
To those that desire unity, God is here.

Before and after thoughts have become, the past provides insight.
It will burn if I do not take care.
A blaze of light and I lack fear.
The need to know stands.

May God deliver souls!
May the Lord make all of us whole!

I descended to climb.
I am calm to be profound.
Praying to God through song, knees I bend.
I shall not fail.
My spirit forms.
God and I are one.

(ORCHESTRA/MUSIC)

So I climbed to ascend.
I went up to come down.
So I bend my knees in prayer
I opened my mouth to song.
I did not fail in goal.
I did bring peace within.
Clearly, God and I are in unity.

I ascended to climb.
I came down to go up!
On bended knees, I prayed.
Song came from my mouth.
I did not fail!
I was healed!
To those that desire unity, God is here.

AN ODE TO THE HANDS

On Grandma’s bedroom wall hung pencil sketches
To inspire me and draw me in, never fail
The hands in prayer our daily blessing fetches
The cuffs rolled back, work ready, in the detail

The fingerprint motif of light on hands
To give us notice we are unique – and His
Strong thumb accentuating Holy Bands
Steeple elongated fingers, preaching Bliss

On The Tree, He died for our earthly sins
(The cross marked in the veins of the left hand)
He wished to spare us the suffering since
Love and compassion, for which we should stand

Only in Truth can we realise beauty
The Hands setting the example of: “Thank Ye!

[Poetry form used: Sonnet]

If we do not live in Truth, a God given opportunity which we must embrace, then the beauty of all that we perceive will pass us by. ~ Su Crous

The Fear of the Lord Brings Wisdom

The Fear of the Lord Brings Wisdom!

The fear of the lord is the beginning of wisdom.
This is a helpful key to enter his kingdom!

This encourages a reverence
for his holy name!
Having God’s wisdom, can spare us,
 so much shame!

God loves and cares for us! 
 And listens when we pray!
Through his son Jesus, 
his love has been displayed!

He’s given to us his word,
 as a way to remind us…
We may get lost…  
But God’s love will find us!

Having a Godly fear, will nourish the soul!
Having his wisdom will help
 make us whole!

Won’t you seek the Lord?
While he may be found?
He can pick you up, when you feel
 you’re losing ground!

Come one and all! 
 All of heaven does proclaim…
Anything you need… 
 You can find in Jesus’ name!

Please, dear lord, bring your
 presence and love!
And guide us with your wisdom
 and spirit from above!

Living Without

I tried to write about love but I haven’t felt it. 
I tried to write about the sea but I’ve never seen it. 
Then I tried to write about the air, but I have never breathed it. 
I tried to write about magic but I never believed it.
I couldn’t write about god, all I have ever done is sinned.
And when I tried to write about life I found, 
I have never really lived.

Jesus Has Given So Much

What Shall I Do? For the One Who Gave So Much? What shall I do? For the one who gave so much? God reached down, and blessed me, with his touch! What shall I do? To my lord who bled and died? It was for my life, that Jesus was crucified! What shall I do? To the God who truly loves me? He has made it know that he wants to be with me! What shall I do? For the many who’ve “lost their way?” Please dear Jesus… Give me the right words to say! What shall I do? As my way of, expressing my gratitude? May God help me to have a Christ’ like attitude! What will YOU do? In this time that God’s given to you? He’s here right now! And is patiently waiting for you! What will YOU do? Will you give God a chance ? Won’t you accept his salvation? Whatever the circumstance? What Christ will do… Is to do, what he does best! Simply give him your life! He’ll take care of the rest! What Christ has done…. Is to give life everlasting! Everything you need… Is right here, for the asking! By Jim Pemberton

Some say your only as strong as you feel, but how could we change..in a place that's so unreal. People are hearing but..not really hearing. Why is the world so blind. I keep on screaming and screaming and screaming for things to be revolutionized. I am just a small song in a world full of cries, laughter, tears and french-fries.

The Magik Of Love

Reflections in the mirror were getting scary I could not carry the weight of my pain it almost took my life to learn to love again for I have made a friend somewhere along my long lost way I hope that I helped him just a fraction of how he helped me maybe that single thought is what finally gave me my peace enough to release so much stolen energy Now I am not afraid to walk where the streets are hot for I thrive in Hell's kitchen where the devil stirs my pot for I now have him quiet tame I sacrificed my dragons at the alter of my name and now you are my slaves any time I need I'll call upon my superhero's to come and rescue me like my Saint Toni who swept me off that bridge and showed my how a death can be the greatest reason to live for she was the seed to grow my Eden then a man from a foreign land gave me something in myself to believe in the magik of Love.

Beyond The Distance And The Days

Our love grows stronger,
Even beyond the distance,
Even beyond the days.
I know you're with me always
And I'm always with you;
In God together we're together forever
And physically we'll be together forever soon.

Never So Gracious

A full moon night to my delight what is so wrong with doing what's right nothing is right after so long no use in complaining time to move on The Dream Water one day might take me away farther from the comfort of familiarity I float on my back then shut my eyes my body now sinking into ocean arms open wide Now swallow your son back to his nature when he is no longer needed to stay here the next generation are dooming themselves they need my experience to guide them through hell Why should I bother on my own, I strive through I turn my back on the thought of bothering to save you alone in this world my, is it spacious I'm finally smiling, never so gracious.

To A Child Who Has A Disorder

Children with an illness,
Go through life,
They are looked down apon,
Because they are different,
When really they are not,
They are no different from  you and me,
They have the same blood,
Running through their bodies,
Just as their hearts as well,
So, don't just look apon,
Their outer appearance,
And judge them,
For who they really are,
For a lot of them,
Are smarter and brighter,
Than you and I,
Could possibly be,
On our brightest day,
For they have the gifts,
From God up above,
So, always take the time,
To get to know their inner beauty,
For who they really are,
Cause they too need love,
Just as everyone else does,
If not even more.

Not the material guy

Not the material guy

I’m not the material guy
Ambitions were never for I
I’m always the one
That gets noting done
I’m a dreamer, I cannot deny.

My mind it is not very clever
My heart is as light as a feather
My manner is free
Like a bird in a tree
And I never will worry, not ever

Just like a river I’ll flow
And always my heart it will glow
I won’t push the river
So life does deliver
A feeling that each day does grow

Until the day that I die
I won’t let a day pass me by
Without looking at me
At within, what I be
As always I’ll ask ‘Who am I?’

Jesus, Please Take Over Me

You've fallen down again;
How can you let darkness win?
You just scraped your knee,
You didn't break your leg.
It will all be okay;
I will give you strength.
Brush it off, my child;
Come and take my hand.
Let me help you up again;
You will be okay.
I have always been with you,
And I always will be.
I am by your side,
But this time,
Will you allow me to take the lead?

If I can

If I can endure for this moment 
whatever may happen to me, 
no matter how sore my heart is 
or how dark the moment may be. 

If I can remain calm and quiet 
with everything crashing around me, 
I would be save for the Lord loves me 
when everyone turns there backs on me. 

If I can keep on believing 
what I know in my heart is true, 
that the Lord died for me 
than I am His, for I'm his child. 

If I can see a star twinkling 
than I'll know it is Him winking, 
I'll know that He keeps an eye on me 
and save I am to be.

What Will I Do Where Will I Go

 UNSUPPORTED CODE What Will I Do?   Where Will I Go?

What will I do?  Where will I go?
Which direction I’ll take…  I don’t really know!

In just a moment, I lost all,  that I worked hard to get…
I’m thinking of “letting go.”  
But haven’t done it yet…

The things I held so close...  Have all disappeared.
It happened so fast.  It’s kind of “weird.”

Those I call my friends, don’t really know
 what to say.
Most of them shake their heads, and walk away!

I’ve cried myself to sleep many days and nights.
It’s like someone has “turned off the lights.”

The only one I know, that I can turn to, is Christ alone!
I need him to heal my broken heart and home.

Dear Jesus, will you take some time to help me out?
I know that helping people is what you’re about!

Please help me to pick up the 
pieces that are scattered!
Help me to focus on the things in life
 that really matter!

I need to give you, all of my focus and attention!
I need your word to show me
 some clear direction!

You’re the one that I always need to hold on to!
I need to do this, and to completely trust you!

Thank you Jesus for listening
 and answering my prayer!
I’m thankful that you’re someone who really cares!

Thank you for restoring my life,
 that has been “up-ended.”
With your love, my heart has been
 healed and mended!

The Empty Rib Slot

Dedicated to all of the guys who helped me to make the checklist - thanks!

The Empty Rib Slot I think I might have A perfect checklist Highlights from men Gathered now missed Yes special highlights Each man carried some Now added to my checklist For a guy having it all in one This could be the key to find The man I’m dreaming of Not with bits and pieces One filled full of love A man made for me No it would be not I should fit perfectly Into an empty rib slot Let me share this list With every one of you Then decide for yourself If it could possibly be true My first check comes from This guy with dreamy eyes He deeply touched my soul Way more than ever realized He even had a special smile That made you want to grin No matter if life was down He encouraged me to win There was the big hugger With squeezes oh so tight He lifted me off the floor Like if I was taking flight He never did grow tired Of giving me those hugs I never had to ask for them He always did it out of love Then there was the dancer He stayed light on his feet He loved dancing with me Carrying rhythm and a beat Now of course on this list There certainly has to be That best friend I count on Who can also count on me I am even going to count The good points of quality Generated from my brothers And even from my daddy From them they all carry A very good temperament Always being so easy going Not looking for an argument When I am nestled in that slot With a perfect feel of passion All of his glory will then shine As it eludes from my reflection The most important one of all He who shares a spiritual side Being spiritually open with me Not allowing his beliefs to hide I know how this all may sound Like a crazy thing that I’ve got I want the man I fit snuggly with When I match his empty rib slot Florence McMillian (Flo)

The Truth About Love

Love is not easy
Love is hard
Love is time apart
Trying not to drown
Praying to stay loyal
Holding on to lover's promises
Dreaming of reuniting
Crying tears of hurt and joy
Thinking of you constantly
Asking God for all the best
Love is difficult
Love is not easy
Love is hard
Love is faith
Love is hope
Love is trust
But love is beautiful
Oh, so beautiful
And love is worth it
Oh, so worth it
Love is in God's Hands
Love is protected
Love will come back again
Reunion again
For God is love
In Jesus' Name
We pray
Amen!

A Servant's Heart

"Truly I tell you, among those born of women 
there has not risen anyone greater than 
John the Baptist; yet whoever is least in the 
kingdom of heaven is greater than he." --Mathew 11:11

I know you think life's easier,
Because you're not me,
I'm the custodian or waitress,
Never the manager or maître d.

I may seem low and simple,
Earn a meager salary,
I have no one to impress,
So the money's fine with me.

I'll open your door,
And buff your floor,
Make you feel like a queen,
Cause it lights my smile,
And gives me joy awhile,
Serving brings blessing.

Do you have a servant's heart?
Be the first to congratulate us,
For Jesus said the least
In His kingdom is greatest.

If you are normally honored,
Look down on me if you wish,
I only speak the truth when I say,
The servant’s heart is a gift.

For You And Me

It  was  for you and me ,
That Jesus left His throne,
Bore the scourge and agony,
Shivered His flesh and bone,

It was for you and me,
He took the awry tour,
Towards the dreaded Calvary,
Summed His tortured  hours,

It was for you and me,
That Jesus bore the cross,
Paid the greatest penalty,
That death supposed be ours,

It was for you and me,
He wailed the gloomiest cry,
It was for you and me,
Jesus was nailed to die,

Oh, that you and I may see,
Our wickedness beyond measure,
Jesus to set us free,
In our stead bore the torture,

His love mysterious great,
Knocks  the door of all men's heart,
His mighty power recreates,
Renews our lives whole to restart,

It was for you and me,
When on the third day death sufficed,
The savior left His grave,
Victorious he arised,

He rose back to His throne,
Sitting by His Father's side,
Prepare! He's coming soon,
Today is to decide,

This Is The Love

Stand up and shake;
Feel the rhythm in your heart.
Ignite those pants;
We get up and dance.

Eternity in our souls;
Feel the chills of those bones.

Open those closed doors:
Into Heaven we go,
Welcomed and forgiven.
Here is the love;
Let's dance!

We Have A SIN Condition

We Have A Sin Condition! We have more technology, but we have a problem! We have many “issues.” And don’t know how to solve them! Governments answer seems to be “spend, spend, spend.” But we have this condition, that God calls; SIN! Just look at the problems that are all around you! It’s amazing that they don’t “overwhelm you!” There’s all sorts of evil all cross our land! But there’s something very few understand! We’ve sent men to the moon and outer space! Yet very few reach out and receive God’s grace! The Bible says, “the heart of the man is sinful.” Without God, man’s heart is never “peaceful!” Jesus love provides for the world that fails us! He offers his love! Simply because he loves us! There’s no “condition.” His love is freely given! Won’t you accept him? And be totally forgiven? Where there’s sin. God’s grace does much more abound! There’s a new life for you! Just waiting to be found! Our sins for his love! What more could one ask? And enjoy a love and peace that will ALWAYS LAST! By Jim Pemberton

from a father to be

I grew up without a father,
never dealing with it inside
only getting used to the absence
bt the lack did not subside.
i never learnt to fix whats broken
never learnt to be a man
never learnt to swim or sail
never thought i really can.

My father left me only fear
that i was now incompetent
to be the father he was not
to have a child, im hesitant.
But still hope withers not away
that i could be so blessed one day
to hold a gift given by God
and live to have a family.

My father left me only fear
that i might abandon my own
but children i hold very dear
and wish they not be left alone,
to fend for themselves without the guide
but have a father to be shown.
To those who, appreciate
your fathers heart, its not too late
this day is just a reminder,
 that those who have fathers
life treated kinder.

Chasing the Dream

We both play this game
But yet I’m the only one left in this shame
We all follow our dreams 
But I’m the only one stuck in the seams 

Don’t you see what you do to me 
You do everything right
But I’m always stuck in this fight
Everything looks so easy from the distance
But I’m far from chasing innocence 

I always wear my heart on my sleeve
But you always give me less reasons to believe 
With you everyone loves what they see
But I’m always chasing the dream

They say time is of the essence 
But I can never see past the present 
They say don’t be held back by fear
But every scar brings back a tear

We both play this game
But yet I’m the only one left in this shame
We all follow our dreams 
But I’m the only one stuck in the seams

I’m always haunted by my past
Seems like these blessings will never last
Inside I know that I’m not good enough for you
Inside I know it’s too good to be true

Always walking such a fine line
But never getting a sign
I long for the end to come
For a place where I truly belong 

I’m always running as fast as I can
But I’m always left in the sand
Day after day I give it my best
Yet you’re the one that’s always blessed

Don’t you see what you do to me 
You do everything right
But I’m always stuck in this fight
Everything looks so easy from the distance
But I’m far from chasing innocence

Every sigh 
Is a result of a lie
Deep inside I know I can’t do this on my own
I need to step down from my throne 
I had to learn to fall
Before I could break down these walls
I needed God to see
Life is bigger than me

We both play this game
But yet I’m the only one left in this shame
We all follow our dreams 
But I’m the only one stuck in the seams

I always wear my heart on my sleeve
But you always give me less reasons to believe 
With you everyone loves what they see
But I’m always chasing the dream

Inside the Membrane

The pain I feel inside 
Can be derived from my dad pride
I sit alone at night
There is this emptiness that is
The squandering of time
pondering what life will be like
Who knew that twenty-one
Would be More bumps and lumps than fun
I want to dump this chump
Standing in front of the mirror
Waiting till its clearer
This Brings a sobering effect
Over thinking each step
It is like I'm playing freeze tag
With these mundane demons
And They always keep me in check
Because I cant see them
I have been contained and constrained
I complain of chest pains
Till my veins pop off like champagne
Bruce Banner's a freight train
Going insane in the membrane

So should I smoke weed then
To cope with this moping season
Cause my yoke is heavy
and dope seems dope for lots of reasons
Even though I do know
What the verse says in Ephesians
"Do not get drunk on wine...
Instead be filled with the spirit"
This is my one beacon
That's give me hope when I hear it
Its a choice for heathens
Like me, to write our own lyrics
Since death has been beaten
And no longer need to fear it
His love is infinite

So many candles to see the light

Like joyous green of summer, my heart is singing filled
With you, while winter`s white is witness of good willed;
The glass works and the hot red wine spreading light:
Comforting carols “Silent Night” or “Brad Frumos”. 

Comforting thoughts of good like good miners,
And cakes a lot with names of saints and sinners
Looking the heart of sweet cherries strudel under the sight

Of mother humming “Silent Night” or “Brad Frumos”.

Smoldering embers and feeling like hot chocolate 
With scent of incense offered to every Christian mate
Under the new temptation of good and hope of right
 
Teaching of church on “Silent Night”,under “Brad Frumos”

The sacrifice of the pig, a ritual Symphony in red,
At the other side of modal logic, with wine and bread
And slaughtered pig and soured soups that might  
                                                               
Be prepared and savored on "Silent Night" ,near “Brad Frumos”


The aromatic smoke ascending, and dancing heavenly
Like our attempt to preserve and conserve not only
The clay and flash creature but also the inner light 

And so many candles to see the Light on “Silent Night”...

What If Christmas Never Came


What If… Christmas Never Came??? What if Christmas never happened? What if Christmas never came? Things around here would be different! It wouldn’t be the same! What if the baby Jesus was never born in a manger? Mankind would be in serious trouble. We’d all be in danger! If the baby Jesus wasn’t born. There would be no nativity. We wouldn’t be able to display this during our “festivity.” It’s almost like this now! It’s an “ever increasing business.” It seems like nearly everyone wants “Christ out of Christmas!” Why does it seem like Christmas is losing it’s true meaning? The very words; “Merry Christmas,” seem to be quickly disappearing! Many say; “Happy Holiday.” They worry they may “offend.” Having a “holiday” without Christ…. Once again! We need to put Jesus Christ back into our CHRISTmas season! He is what Christmas is about! HE is the very reason! May we all take some time to rejoice in our savior’s birth. May there be shouts of JOY! From the corners of the earth! Let’s not take Christ out of our joyous celebration! We need him so much right now! All over this great nation! May we bring to him a heart of love for everything he’s done. As we bring honor to Christ. God’s precious son! May we continually offer to him a heart filled with praise! Not only at Christmas time… But all of our days! By Jim Pemberton

Dear Furture Mr Right

Are you even out there 
Or is this another religious term
Cause how am I suppose to 
knowingly wait
If your not even confirmed
The perfect man, like a treasure 
concealed
But can't your hurry already and be 
revealed
It's hard when God made every 
male with so much appeal

It really is Gods fault
He made me a woman
Making me wait for my own song of 
Solomon
But now I'm solemn, and
This waiting takes too long
Searching for Mr. right
In a world of Mr. wrongs
What will it hurt if I give myself 
away
Nothing physical of course, just 
flirtatious play
Hormonal needs that I must attend 
to
But don't worry my love I'm still 
waiting for you

I hear scripture say
Do not awake love before its time
Ha, Solomen get with the times
In this world I must work to get was 
is rightfully mine
So if I want love, it'll be my job to 
find
it. 

But don't worry future husband I'm 
to smart to settle
Even If I pass around my blossomed 
heart, you'll still have one petal.
Of course it might be crumbled 
from the last chosen vessel.
But Gods is a god of renewel and 
reassemble

So its all good

I know its not the destiny I need to 
choose
But its hard hanging around friends 
who do nothing but pursue
Relationship flings that they fling 
themselves to
Yet still have a happily ever after 
come true
While I sit around waiting like a 
lose-r

Trust me okay, I understand the 
stake
But if I give my heart to God who 
knows how long it'll take
It's not a reluctant, eye rolling 
choice to make
But one of determination I must 
partake
So I'll wait, for your sake

Your worth the wait, I tell myself
Until the time is right, I'll be 
readying myself.
Spending time with the One who 
knows me better them myself.
Only then will He bring someone I 
can love as myself

And like my Savior I know you'll be
Confirmed by my heart with every 
prophecy
So that when I see
The mirrored reflection of your life
It'll remind me of the passion that I 
Have for my Christ

Give me patience oh God
For I'm still learning
Though my flesh rebels
I'm still yearning
Don't give up on me my prince
Though emotions are burning
Waiting i'll be
for the only one who is worthy

Adam's Apple

Delicious as it may sound,
a whisper from the heavens to the ground
the evil in my hand , red raging juicy fruit imagination,
Nature's natural sweet serpentine temptation,
how did it come to this ?
A life from the hands of Genesis
missing pages, that will bring death by the words of Revelation

My days, have become numb,
living through the flesh of Adam
a toast, with a kiss, I offer, Adam the beauty of the next bite
My heart had no meaning to know it was deceiving
the performance of a lifetime
banned from the Garden of Eden's eternity

My hands, have become numb,
my cup is empty, I can't find the proper filling
I'm falling far from the feeling of eternal light
Adam, what have we done, I feel the shame!
Our bodies of nakedness reveal the mud under both our bare feet

Take my hand, as I feel the pain of 20 crushing bones
I have the power to give birth to all my children,
this does not explain my punishment, BUT A GIFT!

No longer will the light ease this hunger
living day by day, until I meet my number

ADAM!
Am I not the apple of your eye ?
You, witness the conversation without a word of moral support
in you, the light has bestowed a powerful note,
from the tree of good and evil, conceiving with seeds
You, my love, will always swallow the apple for never speaking up
marked by a distinguished cartilage bone
" Adam's Apple "
I offer you ;

A PLACE CALLED THERE

Not too far from here
Lies the dream terrace I hear
The haven of bliss and solace
A glamorous gem of a place
The end of a weary quest
The trophy in fiery contest

Not too far from here
Sits the crown we lived to dare
Purple pride of an intellectual struggle
The green goal of a ceaseless hustle
A place we once asked where
Still seem so far yet so near.

Not too far from here
Stand the Mentors we hold dear
Men who were not shy to believe
Men who fought fear to achieve
The exclusive pass to the hall of fame
for those whose brand is in their name

Your there may differ from mine
I run my route and you run thine
But run we must run and not turn
We sacrifice pleasure and shun fun
Because, not too very far from here
Is a place called there.

Dare to get there.

My heartfelt thanks to a fascinating person I did not know contest

Was in1967 that this wonderful man
Performed an operation that no one else can.

Because of this man my heart can be healed
My undying gratitude is surely signed and sealed.

His work has helped  hundreds of sufferers
To  lead a near normal life  of many years.

To this man I raise my glass, been thinking very hard
How do you say thank you, to Dr Christian Barnard.

Your expertise has been shown and taught in distant parts
Now surgeons  have the knowledge to mend such broken hearts .

When he retired from this work his planned to end his days
Living in Austria to wind down, relax and golf to play

Whilst on holiday in Paphos after he had retired
Died at the poolside  of a heart attack, a good life expired.


Dedicated to Dr Christian Barnard, the man whom in South Africa  carried out the first human  to human heart transplant..

Lets Fly Away

I spread my wings to fly away,
I spread my wings not to die today. 
My soul is being torn open now,
My soul will break free and not come down. 

Noise and music fill my ears to a point of over flow,
it run's through my veins and pores out so slow. 
It runs so wild and free,
not knowing where it wants to be. 

So let me fly for Christs sake, all i want to be is free,
you hold me down long enough and you'll see that I'm a monster like you never seen.

Too afraid to make a mistake.

Please bring me back to You.

When Is Right Now

When can I say I love you,
Without it being premature?
Do you search for the one that wants to
Prove you're worth fighting for?

When will your walls break down,
And your heart speak what I'd say?
Tell me, what time is right now,
And when this love is okay?

What You Really Don't Like Me

What?  You Really Don’t Like Me?

Is there something about me,
 that you don’t like?
If you seen me today…
Would you want me to “take a hike?”

Perhaps it’s my personality,
 or a habit of mine.
You can’t stop talking about me,
much of the time.

Pointing out my faults to some
 of the people you know…
The words you say are actually
 eating at your soul!

Instead of loving me, the way
 God wants you to…
You bring up things about m,
 you’re not supposed to do!

Have you ever just once,
took the time to pray for me?
Am I someone you want to be with
for eternity?

STOP! And think about the damage
 you’ve already done!
Begin to pour out your heart
 to Jesus, God’s son!

May he help you to really LOVE me
 the way he does!
The cross he bore was for you and I…
Whom he loves!

May your thoughts about me,
make your heavenly father proud!
I hope to see you as we meet Jesus one day…
In the clouds!

I'm not sure if it was winter or spring
But, I gave way to all the flaws and  imperfections
and realized that this is me
The change came when I saw fit
and not when someone else decides

It's not hard to forgive
And even easier to forget
Does that not reflect love and also what it begets?
Except too many hold grudges and even
pretend to be angry beyond whats necessary
Caught up in someone elses problem
and not dealing with their own is a hard burden to carry
Let it go
stop negativity where it begins

Cut people short if you have to
because this is your life you have to live
Be on the lookout for those looking to devour you
Pray for those who do ill sh@! to you
Respond in a way that makes them realize they love you
and hope it inspires change

Still maintain dignity and move on to something new
Growing, building up treasures for a place greater than
you can even dream to go
It's the simple things that help make life flow
I could go on and on with this practice flow
Writing and stoping to think or lift my pen
This is one of those poems that didn't make it to the waste bin.

Refusing To Listen

Everyone telling me where to go:
Turn left,
Turn right.
I don't even know who to listen to anymore;
I don't even know who I am anymore.
God, please speak to me
And tell me where to go
And show me what to do
Because Your voice is drowning out in the madness
Or maybe I am just refusing to listen.

Hello It's Jesus

“Hello It’s Jesus"

I’m 6’ 3" and 220lb man and He brought me to my knees, 
Yes it was Jesus

I wasn’t the kind of man who would follow anyone, 
I did follow Jesus

But when Jesus touched my heart and blessed me and I fell to my knees and I cried, 
I believe in and love Jesus

You can’t see Him or touch Him, He’s like a breeze that covers our land, 
Yes I know Him its Jesus

Strong enough to rule the heart of any person,
Yes to Jesus

He’ll lift you up and you’ll see all around as He turns your life inside out, 
Yes that’s Jesus

Most people are like me and they struggle day in and day out, with doubt, 
Cause by satan

Too busy with having fun and playing games to care about the love and care He can give them, or
To listen to Jesus

When I see children with their mother I thank God our Father for our Brother, 
Jesus

Pollice Verso- Thumbs Down

Jean-Leon Gerome’s Pollice Verso pleases my artful eye
As a gladiator boldly stands thus alone
With foot upon a defeated soul
He awaits the Roman crowd’s reply
The great coliseum is filled high
A populous with thumbs down does yield 
For slaughtered blood to flow a ground
Thus the conquer will most likely fulfill
With blade in hand
His beating chest
Pollice Verso the given sign
Their savage eyes drawn down with cries
For to come will be the gruesome fun
Yet I in vision another martyred Christian
He surely 
Will shortly
Die

THE TIME TRAVELER

This life of man is foreseen by our ancestors,
With a degrading soil of the earth
This world of ours is flooded with uniqueness
Everyone is gifted, but not everyone is recognise
Everyone is needy and fulfilled with the jesters lies

So come with me all those who wants a taste of differences
To a time were writers were true and music was of the heart.
Not having the lost of innocents, but assured that it is treasured
Love was easy and knew what love lost in time that never stood constant.

Would find grace in the eyes of God 
and not turn away by faulty shepherd.
Lo and behold find the prideful to be humbled
Least their pride be their downfall.

Come and look at the works of the great masters,
And be humbled by their work of ages.

The Master Artist

Vincent, we adore your Starry Night,
Illuminant to the inner being,
Undercurrents of celestial, 
Brilliant and intriguing. 

Dali, we love your vision,
Etching with great precision,
Alive with startling surrealism,
Reflecting human indecision.

Monet, you paint dreams,
E’ry bouquet picturesque,
Midday, sunrise, sunset,
Ballet dancers stretch and arabesque.

But God, You always take the cake,
Your work they only imitate,
Reprints of all You create,
E'ry shore, mountain, and snowflake.

Miracle

I was in a panic my heart beating rapidly

At the thought of losing it all.

I looked around and what I found

Were angels starting to fall.

 

Warriors from up above

Sent to help the willing,                             

But what they had wasn’t enough;

to stop humanity from killing.

 

For they were corrupt and unjust

In what they have learned

They didn’t realize that all of their sinning;

Was going to get them burned.

 

 Here are all of the angels;

 Working hard to save

These people who just laugh at death

And the gift in which he gave.

 

There was an angel so beautiful,

One I couldn’t see- for there was

A bright white light

Surrounding him and me.

 

He kissed my temple and he whispered

Everything was going to be okay.

I felt the warmth of the message

That he tried to relay.

 

A peace washed over me as I realized;

 I had spoken to God,

I watched the dirty looks and heard the snickers

Of those who found it odd.

 

For in this age it is impossible,

To speak to the creator,

It must have been a demon in disguise

A great impersonator.

 

They were wrong

 I have never had such a great feeling,

Energy passed through me

 And healed the pain I’d been concealing.

 

I will always remember

The day that I had needed

A miracle from up above

My prayers had been heeded.

Deep in the Valley

Deep in the valley of life and pain

my heart sinks and things sting.


Deep in the valley of strife and fear

my heart is weak and never seems pure.

Deep in the valley of sin and sorrow

you give me a life and a new tomorrow.


Deep in the valley where I walk day to day

I search for your Hand to take me one way.



Deep in the valley where I am alone at times

only to find you near when I let go of fear.



Deep in my heart is the valley of life

your love for me Jesus keeps me living this day.



Deep in the valley where I touch your sweet face

I know I will win with your hand in mine.



YOU Jesus are my valley,where I travel in time

looking for your embrace and smelling the roses

deep in my heart is your valley in me,



take me home to the valley of heaven one day ,

I will see a new one

deep in the valley of life.

Learning to Hope

I thought hope was too emotive,
I noticed how much time it wasted,
Worse yet—when it fails, it’s corrosive,
But hope is something God created,
To be risked and to be tasted,
I put my faith in You, oh Lord,
To show my heart the unexplored.

Sacred Heart

The general buzz of people,
Never ceasing chatter, bees,
Forever swarming, moving, hot
Sun beating down on all.
Everyday life continuing on,
Yet a few break away
And head towards the shadow.
Tall, imposing grandeur, decorated
Inside and out, justly so.
Passing from tepid heat to
Sudden calming cool, refreshing,
The threshold of another place.
Farther in, opening up,
Magnificent circles, curves, creatures,
Faces at every visible angle.
The general buzz is behind now,
Only a memory, last touch
Of a lesser important reality.
Here is what truly matters,
The inspiring silence, whispers
At the heart and very soul.
Self fades away completely,
Insides laid bare before generations,
Holy memories and endless power.
The scent of blessed parchments
And candles of costly prayer
Entwine with the awe of
Standing in God’s holy home,
A harbingering of heaven above.

Is It too Soon

Is it too soon to say, "I love you?"
Is it too soon to let you know?
Is it too soon to spek those words,
So you'll never let me go?
Is it too soon to tell you,
I never want to leave your side?
If it is please let me know,
So my feelings I can hide.
Is it too soon to love you,
For you to embrace me?
If so, take my spirit,
And please set it free.
Is it too soon to love you,
With the part of my heart not the Lord's?
Is it too soon to utter,
Those three simple words?
Is it too soon to tell you,
For you my heart beats fast?
Is it too soon to want you now,
Too soon to forget my past?

Eve's River

This Adam's Apple of your molding
have given me a deep voice to rejoice our unfolding,
a deep love untethered from choice, a necessity of partner's growing,

My moral for you is to trust what you do Eve
to listen as your moods revolve throughout doubt and devotion,
I am the muscle in your might, the ferocity felling your fright,
my religion is unhidden for our mortality once forbidden,
Eve, you are more than the " Apple of my Eye "
you are the chapel wherein I find my will to rebel,
my law is to never let you fail,
to subdue that which may make you wail,
as long as I live
your chalice shall brim with intoxicating vim,
never forget that you are made from my flesh
upright and unruly from the richness of my ribs,
as consequence of your yearning you now feel the bleeding,
that red bath of a mortal's life, the strife of success,
when Father raged I was your defender, your accomplice,
I am your sword, and Lord,
you are my wisdom, and my Lady,
I have accepted the Apple of our awakening
and you will consume the seed of our flowering -

By Poet - Adam/J.A.B.

waiting on the Lord

Beat model, the truth

I just defeated a temptation see
Deal was soo good but then I thot o revelation
Fought it to the ground like a superpower nation
Stillitroselikeaboxerthrowingthrowingpunchesinmydirection
My goodness

		And Jehova’s my witness
It is hard be-in a righteous man in pursuit of these richess
   See a man gotta do what a man gotta do
Then a man gotta die then account before the heavens
My goodness

		Who’s me,  u don’t know me
U think you know me’ I don’t even know me
I’m nobody, I speake so much nonsence ignore me
If am somebody and speake to you some sence, applaud me

	   I heard God has got a justice system
So strict they only let in the souls that r cleanest
(What of the rest)………….”heard they get roasted”
(you believe) …….…….”my thoughts are clouded”



Mammalian mind of mines money mobilized 
Society
Stressing on status seeking to stabilize
My goodness……….crimes habitualized
World without worries it is hard to visualize

Swirl back to before adam on the first date
Before the devil had us caged if we cld have a new slate
                  Perfect definition of happily ever since
But then, humanity’s mammalian we had to let in sin

All a gat. Is a lyf, that I don’t really deserve
SoIthankGodevydayfornotspillingmylife’sresserve
                 They pinned Him to the cross
Like a notice to the world readin the devil’ in-charge
       
        I hear bells tolling from a distance like a calling
I don’t ask for whom they toll I know theyre warnin of my falling
Evyday am on my knees seekin a spiritual breakthrough
Then am- on ma- feet re- a lize- my heart- is hard- to break- thru




My goodness

			Dear God, it is me again
Still alive and kicking, thanks to you my life has not ended
Means I got a purpose unfulfilled am workin hard on it
For my latest on my page of sins I beg you pardon it

			I’v got a faith so shaky
Likeaweakradiosignallandidonotwannafakeit
So am praying…….break this chain that enslaves me
    I trick-my soul-am too-weak to-be what-you pur-posed me-to be

		Dear God-I am trapped-in a thunderstorm
My worries keep me wide awake a worried prayer’s becoming norm
       Mind’s  eye’- seeing -things I -should not- even- see at –all
Am trapped-in a swirl- sucking me into oblivion

                     Dear God, thisshouldnotend-in an amen
But soon I drift off and act like early days cavemen
Am prayin for faith the size of biblical - days men
Noah, Abraham,




At times I feel like I have had enough
Life is pushing me to harden up
Trajectory steepening isn’t life already hard enuff
Scared to death of dying yet you lookin forward  to bein dead
Strange anticipation yu just not so sure you ready yet
Other side foggy I could take the wrong turn
Am not my life’s time keeper, I drop dead I burn
See my life is on a countdown soonerolater am at zero
Revelation scary my generation needs a hero
Mental degradation filth propagation annihilation
Of spiritual ways plight of my generation
See………I gat a conscious conscience
But somehow my mind prioritizes nonsence
Gat ink on ma heart says God is watching
But somehow my heart still succumbs to longings
On the move again, bag packed with all my belongings
Long walk ahead o me I still packed my longings

A Dream

A Dream

Who has control of a dream?
Who can cast it down like a lot from heaven?
Perhaps the angels?
Or is it from the gods?
Dreams are birthed as ideas from the mighty throne of our Creator
Who can search our hearts and minds and like a puzzle
Unravel the pieces?
Who can travel back in time 
Or into the future?
Our heads gently lying on this red velvet pillow
Tossing and turning 
Reveling in fear and joy with rapid eye motion
Dreams are birthed in heaven
In the same spot the thoughts of this girl’s life were planned
Hoeing and tilling the soil of her life 
Til in her dreams she got it right
It was so real it couldn’t have been her imagination
Thank you heavenly Father for sending this dream
Thank you for sending like flags of victory
The moments of her future etched in eternal stone
Gather up my dreams and place them in a precious box
To be reviewed at the end of my journey
Gather them up like prized possessions
I long to watch them all over and over again

Dark wolf

Dark wolf......
 Why still  choose to be on the attack
An blame me for this vicious act
I will not cower
In good vs dark 
My choice is light 
Bring on this fight
There is no surrender 
With a subject so tender
The truth will stand tall
There is no fear at all
With God by my side let it be known
I will offer him my life  to honor his throne......

Jesus Love Is Overflowing

Jesus love is abundant 
and overflowing!
His love, in my life,
 I’m now enjoying!

Jesus’ abundance of mercy is sweet!
It’s changed me!  I’m now complete!

Jesus’ blood has washed away 
sin’s stains
It set me free! 
 And broke life’s chains!

Jesus has brought his awesome
 redemption!
He loves me so much! 
 There’s no exception!

Jesus can do the same for you! 
 Won’t you let him!
Remember he cares for you!  
Don’t forget him!

Thanks be to Jesus!  
And his majesty displayed.
Through him, a way to heaven,
 has been made!

Someone, Someday

It’s so hard to start
It’s so hard to finish
It feels as if all that you've accomplished will someday be diminished 
And it won’t matter if you become somebody some day
Because someone will easily take your place 
Steal your ideas 
And make a living off you, THEIR way

It’s sad but true
Every mutha f**ka 
Will take a piece of your mind
and will somehow ultimately f**k you

not physically but mentally
making you think 
you’re not one of a kind
their getting all the fame 
while everyone leaves you behind

leaving you to feel like a failure 
people telling you to talk to God, 
he’ll have the answer

I pray, looking up at the ceiling
Hoping he’ll will give me a reason….
To keep going on with my life and my ideas
But all I’m left with are clones of my feelings
Washed up on canvases with some else’s fake veneers

Reunion

Eyes grow weary, have they learned to see
During years of absence, you from me
Your story's at end, your chosen plot
Time draws near, but you may know not

Shall I see my mother, perhaps my dad
Ever watchful, my being glowing so glad
It is time, I wait with mounting joy
For them once again to be girl or boy

That which was separate, will now be one
Your chosen tasks are nearly done
At the entrance, there I stand
Reunion time is close at hand

From the palm of His hand I've watched you grow
Seeds of goodness, We watched you sow
Come be with me and share His land
I await the touch of your sweet hand

I fault you not, as you can see
I love you so, come be with me
So hasten forth, with lifted heart
No longer more shall we be apart

These words I write, so dear to me
Express my desire that you'll be free
If the gate be locked, search for the key
But look not far, in your heart it will be.

The Day After

The Day After,

Day after day, I pray for our Father to give this demon peace
Adam, I want you to know he does not bother me so,
his rage is his own, not mine,
---tormented by a word, he plasters on his face
words of sorrow, that haunted him for years
God Bless him, and the thin skin he lives in
he has no amo in that pistol he calls a pen
the movements, and the words he spews are too predictable
come sit by my side Adam, let's enjoy another slice of apple pie
together we can watch the mud splash from underneath his feet
look at the way he enjoys eating spoiled grapes
from the hands of his mangled up paparazzi cameltoe hoarders

For who does he think he is, attacking essence, that don't suit him
Adam, I have no problem when this demon speaks in tongues
I laugh at the ones who follow and uproar, his roar,
indecent knoeledge,
Why this demon cries and lies all night long? ---LET THEM ENJOY!
Anything that helps him attract ridicule flies from the same nasty barrio
I can say hurtful things, that will anger the demon,
give him, the real reason for vengence
ADAM! I'd rather not, my words are poisonous enough
too much for someone like him who easily gets bent out of shape,
when it comes to paper and pen, this backstabbing demon
I've shown you my sword, the rage I can display, however that's not lady like
even I was disgusted by the thoughts that poured from my golden pen
I killed, a world, and hung myself when spewing that 75 line verse
a poem, in which God, Himself shut me up, and said " Eve what have you done! "
Walk away now, and never look back, that kind of slam is forbidden
listen to the air, God is whipering, I need not to fight, a fight that's not worth it
Adam, this time let's trust the Lord,
look how this demon's eyes, eiden when we bite the strange fruit together
forget about the worm in the apple, preying on dirty minds needing attention
at the end, he will notice, God is my witness, and under His protection
I move forwards, not backwards, and I know how to turn the other cheek
Adam, its time to look away,
let's make love like never before, let's continue to explore a world of love
a world made especially for ADAM and EVE

In Disguise

The body's eye's are in disguise they see what they want to see,
They look on this and look on that seeing good or misery,
There is a place inside you NOW where true vision awaits,
It is the one and only path to unlock Heaven's Gates,
It's in your Heart that's where you start to leave the World behind,
And in it's place is Light's Embrace welcomed by the open mind,
While you are there you'll see no despair or pain of any kind,
Instead you'll see the Mysteries that make a World Divine,
The body's eye's will Still Disguise ~ What Only the Heart can Find
So close your eyes and you will find~ You are no longer Blind   Angel Blessings............. Lisa Craig

HYPOCRITE

I WAS A CHRISTIAN A LONG TIME 
BEFORE I BECAME A TRUE CHRISTIAN 
AND I KNEW THE WORD, AND MAN!!! 
COULD I TALK THE TALK... 
BUT I WAS JUST BEING, RELIGIOUS 
WITH MY "JESUS SAVES" PLATE, ON MY CAR 
JUST BEING A HYPOCRITE, KNOWING, 
I DON'T WALK THE WALK 
SO PROUD OF THE KNOWLEDGE, I HAD IN THE WORD 
WHEN KNOWLEDGE, IS NEVER, ENOUGH 
MY DEEDS WERE EXTERNAL...CONVICTION, ELUDED MY HEART 
THE CHURCH WORK I DID, WAS WITHOUT THE RIGHT MOTIVES 
I DID IT TO BE IN THAT, "CIRCLE" 
BUT ALL DONE IN VAIN, FOR NOWHERE, DID GOD PLAY A PART 

I WAS JUDGMENTAL, AND I CRITICIZED 
THE MEMBERS ATTENDING MY CHURCH 
SHOOK HANDS WITH THE PASTOR, BUT GOD KNOWS, I SPOKE ON HIM TOO! 
ONE FOOT IN THE KINGDOM, AND ONE IN THE WORLD 
WITH TOO MUCH WORLD NOW IN THE CHURCH 
EXPOSING MY HEART THROUGH MY FOUL MOUTH AND THINGS THAT I DO 
MY SERVICE TO GOD WAS ALL USELESS 
'CAUSE REMEMBER, MY MOTIVES, WERE WRONG 
AND GOD HAD TO WORK ON MY ATTITUDE, TO CHANGE MY WAYS... 
AND WITH TIME, I BECAME A TRUE CHRISTIAN 
WHO WALKS IN HIS LOVE AND HIS LIGHT 
I LIVE TO PERFORM HIS GOOD WILL, FOR THE REST OF MY DAYS 

AMEN!

Unfolding

When the deep dark wind of pain starts folding in around me

you take hold of my hands and wrap them in love.


It seems that this way of darkness unfolds right before my eyes

it's your love that keeps me alive


So precious is the thought that unwinds

of the way things use to be

when you found me the first time


You shelter me in Thy Grace

Your hands touch my face


Your ways are true

when we meet one day in the world anew

the shadows will fade and you'll make me new


Oh how I long for the time

when I see you coming in the sky

your heart in mine

the darkness leaves

my heart starts to sing


A new song for you

when we all are made brand new..

Every time I want to hide an angel holds my hand tells me how it will be alright its all part of his plan he now needs me to be tough more now, than ever before he sent forth his bravest angels off into the darkness their halos soar looking for hurt children or mice of men holding back tears for no fear of dying almost a sick twisted pleasure towards why do I stay where I am not wanted I need to be needed an angel can see this as she takes my pain away with her compassion a losing emotion known like only she would for in his place, just maybe she had often stood and now has the eyes to understand the ugliest side that hides in man

The Awaiting Gates

Careful of the things you think, do, or say,
Study His word and give Him daily praise.
He will come quickly in the clouds one day,
Don't be left behind, don't be made stay.

Two gates ARE waiting in the everlasting end,
Those without His word awaiting is Hell fire, torment, and pain.
Ask for his mercy with his heart all can be mend,
Those who accept God there's a Heaven waiting words cant fully explain.

A supernatural God can make many wonderful things,
Walking on golden streets next to a crystal sea.
All around you voices, angels, even flowers sing,
So get God in your heart that's the heavens gate key.

What If Christmas Never Came


 UNSUPPORTED CODE What If…   Christmas Never Came???

What if Christmas never happened?  
What if Christmas never came?
Things around here would be different! 
It wouldn’t be the same!

What if the baby Jesus was never born in a manger?
Mankind would be in serious trouble. We’d all be in danger!

If the baby Jesus wasn’t born.  There would be no nativity.
We wouldn’t be able to display this during our “festivity.”

It’s almost like this now! 
 It’s an “ever increasing business.”
It seems like nearly everyone wants
  “Christ out of Christmas!”

Why does it seem like Christmas is 
 losing it’s true meaning?
The very words; “Merry Christmas,” 
seem to be quickly disappearing!

Many say; “Happy Holiday.”  
They worry they may “offend.”
Having a “holiday” without Christ….  
Once again!

We need to put Jesus Christ back into 
our CHRISTmas season!
He is what Christmas is about!  HE is the very reason!

May we all take some time to rejoice in our savior’s birth.
May there be shouts of JOY!  From the corners of the earth!

Let’s not take Christ out of our joyous celebration!
We need him so much right now! 
 All over this great nation!

May we bring to him a heart of love
 for everything he’s done.
As we bring honor to Christ.  God’s precious son!

May we continually offer to him a heart filled with praise!
Not only at Christmas time…  But all of our days!

Lust Becoming - Part One

Our bodies appear so new Eve,
alive with steam and secrets like uncolonized landscapes,
you look at me as if I'm the answer to your agonized ardor,
we are here, in the morning of human mystery,
I see your warm breath trailing from lips undoubting,
removing the simple garment of cotton wool
hanging from vine straps on your tanned shoulders,
I drool a coma of virgin wine,
a drama rushes through my glands for you,
adrenaline rises hot in the pulse we share,
I'm feelin you Eve,
fevering for your cleaving to me,
with both hands,
grabbing your welcoming neck like a pleasure treasure,
kissing you from side to side
slowly, lovingly,
open mouth survival,
a lust revival,
could be our last moment,
love me with that viper tongue,
this is how we were meant to be,
hold my staff as it ripens for you Eve,
I lay you open as a new Gospel,
roaming your foaming fruit,
mesmerized by the moaning,
take my scepter as a rod of romance Eve...

By Poet  - Adam/J.A.B.

At The King's Feet

On a bright and balmy eve, a certain lady has no more tricks up her sleeve
... no way for her heart to continue to deceive its self and God.
On the edge of a drive that overlooks the cities lights, she cried 
out, alone, broken.
Harboring no more ill beliefs about Jesus, herself and others.  
Still, she could not help but to reflect on how some friends were 
so sugary sweet on the outside; yet so full of lies of which they 
may not have known.
Wide open was her heart to ones such as these, but they came 
with fangs not apparent at first, biting her to slake their thirst.  
The red current of her young, redeemed blood had been poisoned 
on the inside.
Thus her walk with Jesus came to a screeching halt for a time, 
so that she could place her brokenness at her King's feet.  
Then she turned all of her heart to Him, her one and only true friend.
He gathered and held her tight in His arms, taking all the hurt and 
mistrust on the inside of Himself.
She knew that she had a safe place to go in order to learn and 
grow from what truly were poor choices... poor choices which were 
hers alone with no one else to blame.
With Jesus she'd always have a home with the one who loves her 
and treats her like He said He would.
So she was able to walk on her feet in this world again with 
her life-long friend.

fantasy

It annoys me
Thinking
Crying
I hate you
I don't like that gift
Take it back
You know what he wants
But you don't know I i want
You spend all your money on him
And spend only ten bucks on me
I gave up on Christmas
Because Santa wasn't real
We look up to him like a god
And that I don't accept
I don't believe in religion
Or in creations of Disney
I do not believe that Santa will show up
I don't believe god will show up
All these stories told by mankind
Are fake.
That's the end of Christmas
How about we live in real life
Instead of living in a fantasy

What Will I Do Tomorrow

I asked why yesterday.
I found an answer today.

I was seeking a certain end.
What I found was a beginning.

I was looking for a truth.
Instead I found wisdom…

I was looking for a friend,
And then I found love.

I wanted to put together thoughts.
When I wasn't looking, purpose stepped in…

While drowning I was holding my breath,
Then I opened my eyes and I was on land…

I was looking for a path to follow,
Someone handed me a map.

I was stumbling in darkness,
When a light was turned on…

I looked into a mirror,
not liking what I saw…
And then I looked into my soul,
I saw beauty…

I met God today…

INSPIRATION ALL AROUND ME

In my lowest point,
Nothing seemed to make sense;  
Searched for what to hold on to and for 
Pointless I used to feel.
In my lowest point, I found you and 
Remaking of my broken self commenced;
And light was born within-
Tearing the darkness from me
In my lowest point, you told me I could trust You-
On Your shoulders I’d never be disappointed;
Nothing impossible with You-  
And tears of amazement they’d be all I’ll have to shed
Reminiscing in your ever pouring grace
On my own, I never made it; but
Under your wings, I’m a victor over pessimism. 
Never reasoned why I never sunk below my lowest point, but now it 
Dawns on me like morning;
My inspiration you’ve always been and- 
Evermore…

Lust Becoming - Part Two

The morning after Eve
a slender look, that kills from a gentle touch
breathing the nullity that proceeds our days after Eden
Adam, luv, the findings of the world
reside in you and me
a brief description of how your time is all I need
take my beating heart, and do as you please
lets set the stage for the rest of the World
all morals, and relationships will follow us through the Ages,
the love, the want, the need, I Eve will be the center of life
a lust you have treasured,
in my soul resides a whole new world,
to feel me, will only bring a need to desire more,
my lips, will stumble on your masculinity, pleasing the touch
this is how it is meant to be, pleading to be loved
God the greatest Author came and has woken us up from sleep,
His amazing Word, we ignored wanting a greater feeling than a kiss
feel me Adam, take your rod and show me the way
another land, I open for your hands to explore
for Eden, was only a dream where there was only one Master
past these gates I offer the taste of my succulent fruit,
savoring the sparkling waters that run down my chest
majestic enough, one day we'll regain hope,
for the meantime,
lay your body next to mine, press against the exquisite beauty of my skin
take me for who I am, and join me as I drown you in the wetness of my sin

is heaven real

what is heaven?
is it a place in the clouds
for someone to be proud?
Does it bring peace?
or is it for the deceased?
where does it come from?
are angels making a soft hum?
Is it a beautiful place?
For people to be safe?
Having so much faith?
How do you get there?
Do you have to die fair?
Do you get treated right?
without having to fight?
Can it heal your pain?
Keep you warm from the rain?
Why don't people know about this?
Is it cause you have to be on the list?
Do you get to be free?
And choose what you want to be?
Is there even a heaven?
When I die...
Can I be an angel?

COMPLETE CHANGE

to completely change and turnaround to you,
to see what you saw.
a lamb of heart that is open,
hardness of a heart that soften.
a change from the darkness,
that lightens teh burdens.
erases the past,
gives content and peace that lasts.
strengthens the weak,
delivers us from all the doubt.
seperates the mighty from the meek,
love that can be shared but not be bought.
simplicity of the goodness,
growth after the mercies.
value of the righteous,
laws with no abuse.
gentleness with every step;
timid and fragile like a sheep,
each important like a secret.
a reflection of a new creation:
an expression of a new sensation,
a revival of the spirit with each new generation.

Because Of You Jesus

Because Of You Jesus


Jesus, you picked us up when we were struggling to get through.
Jesus, you healed our hearts when they were thrown and shattered.
Jesus, you gave us hope when it seemed so far out of reach.
Jesus, you filled us with peace when satin tried to get our lives.
Jesus, you lead us in light when there was nothing but darkness.
Jesus, you gave us comfort when our voices cried out in pain.
Jesus, you reassure us when our doubts scream in our heads.
Jesus, you keep us going when it seems there's no place to go.
Jesus, you sustain us with strength where weakness seems all we knew.
Jesus, you came and stayed when everyone else turned away and left.
Jesus, you give us a purpose when our life seemed so pointless.
Jesus, you restored our happiness when our lives seem to take it away.
Jesus, you filled our emptiness when the void echoed with nothingness.
Jesus, you helped us let it all go when we gripped it the tightest to hold on.
Jesus, you showed us the true beauty of life when the world showed us nothing but hate.
Jesus, you gave us a new life when the old one tried to come back.
Jesus, I am nothing without you, nothing but a lost human.
Jesus, only You could tear down our wall of pride.
Jesus, you build it back with love and humbleness.
Jesus, in all this, we give You our life Lord.
Jesus, we will put all our fears and failures in Your hands,
Jesus, the worries that consume us, the pain that destroys us.
Jesus, You were always there, even when we did not listen to You.
Jesus, in all You are, our life, oh God, is Yours.

The Beauty in All of Us

Beauty.
Is it truly defined by one's looks?
Or what comes from the heart?

I believe there's beauty in the one's who deny they posses such a wonderful blessing.
It doesn't matter if it's something physical you can see or
Something that doesn't pass in front of the eyes.

Beauty comes in more forms than one
It is your choice to decide what your mind will think.

Lots tell me I'm a beautiful person, but then
Why don't I feel that inside as well?
Does the outside even exist as beauty or is it
How well and caring a person can be?

I guess the question will be left open, maybe
Someone WILL come along and really prove what true beauty is all about.

Longing Divulged

Swept in a wind,
Brilliant blaze,
Quick to ascend,
Vanished malaise.

Fling deceived,
Twelve elder souls,
Every thought perceived,
A longing divulged.

No words or reserve,
Heart on review,
Raw emotions surge,
Breathe and exhale You.

Answers undiminished
Times still unfinished.

A Saviour Saving Hands

I am hedged within
Hooked on all side
My life seems to elude
The grace of a good chance
I swim in challenges 
The scenes tangled
Twisted, tight and twisted.

I dive into the thoughts 
Of a Savior saving hands.

The rivers I have come
And to stop in life
No bridge to cross-over.
My piled predicaments
Have shut my eyes of hope
And my faith is less
My smiles are not smiles
But sorrows that have drained
MY TEARS.

I DIVE INTO THE THOUGHTS
Of a Savior saving hands.

Surely He will...
Against my ills
I will wait until...
For His wills...

Dear God

Oh Dear God, look at what my life is like to me,
No-one to come and comfort, no-one who loves me.

As I try to live the life, as a Christian and follow You,
I sit alone each night and cry, for someone to venture through.

Cause this heart has many years, of turning love aside,
Is it my fate to die alone, with so much love inside?

And now I sit alone, and think of all the love that’s passed me by,
Because I wanted to do what’s right, and now I sit here and I cry.

Time is not that good a friend, and my life draws to a close,
So reflecting on my past, I guess, I feel some remorse.

If I could only be a scarlet, and take the love that’s right in front of me,
Would I honestly be happier, or condemned for eternity?

I try to believe that You have something, truly special in store,
For all the sacrifices I have given up, there has to be something more.

I try to think that this is only temporary, and I have to wait my time,
It could be in Heaven that my love blossoms, and I feel love all the time.

But here on Earth, it’s so lonely, and I need to share the love within,
To give to someone special, would it truly be a sin?

I hope not Dear God, for your Son died showing his love for all mankind,
And that’s the kind of love I want to share, the Christian kind.

A love that’s not physical or sexual, but pure and white as snow,
A love that can’t be measured, it’s souls that are connected and that grow.

Not many humans know the heart and soul, and the pleasures deep inside,
I guess that’s my blessing God, you’ve shown me another side.

Of love that you initially intended it to be,
If someone out there knows that love, don’t hesitate, correspond with me.

Oh Come Children of God

Oh Come Children of God

Come long expected children of God,
Born to set your brothers and sisters free;
our fears and sins have been released from us,
Let us know our rest and peace is in God..

With the spiritual strength and consolation,
Hope and love to all people You are;
Our desire for every people,
The joy of every loving heart.

Born to God His people to be delivered,
Born a child is born to be King,
He is to set us free, to reign in our lives ever,
How Your gracious kingdom will bring.

By Your own eternal Spirit heaven on earth,
The guide in all our hearts forever:
My life is complete and my heart is true ,
Raise us to Your glorious throne. AMEN!!. 

All passers by to Jesus come nearer to Him,
We utter the cry, AS gives His ear,
From earth He will retrieve you as He puts out His hand;
Now to receive you, He graciously stands.

If any one Believe in Him, Then happy we would be,
The vilest and worst can come unto Him,
You may drink of my Spirit, as I am the only one,
Your claim to my love, And take as your own.

Whomever receives His life-giving word,
Believes in Jesus as their God and their Lord,
In them a pure river Of life shall flow,
As in the believer will Spring up to the skies.

Our God and our Lord just call us and we will obey,
My heart soul is on Your word Of promise I will stay,

Heart to Mouth Connection

We all have a sinful heart
that only Jesus can mend
go to Him for cleansing power
His atoning blood addressed to send

From our mouth comes forth
what's within our sin cursed heart
all the iniquities that lie there
always evident since our earthly start

These sins our mouths confess
full of sin abundantly true
nowhere can they be hid
for we must admit we certainly do

Jesus speaks here honestly real
showing our problem needed to heal
such is His mercy and love
appealing for us to come and kneel

So confess our hearts to Him
who will forgive and cleanse you
it can't be hidden from His sight
as He will cleanse you anew

AUTHOR NOTES: Matthew 12:34b KJV "for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh."

THE GOSPEL

THE GOSPEL

I lifted my eyes to behold – 
To carefully examine the argument 
But, how can I see?
The towering walls of unbelief;
Veiling my curious vision
To the delight of the stony heart - 
Arrows of wise words, vehemently it resists
Is it just one of those things that happen to man?

I tried to think, but could not
Really, how can these things be?
Is there no alternative - a way to go about it?
… It’s got to be with a flash of lightning
How, the indomitable power, I realized
Residentially inherent in the mystery:
The ancient merciful act of God
Yes, only this could change a man!

And then I saw the diabolic seal
Plastered on the hearts of souls
Tenaciously avoiding deliverance
And stubbornly averting salvation
The procrastination, hesitation and indecision:
The depravity of man
That flings to hell
My heart could not help tearing apart

I sore cried
For I was once in there
Filled to the brim
With self-conceit and worldly wisdom
Oh no! Something has got to happen
And it takes a mourning heart
For a soul, to wait 
Ah, the junction where time meets revelation

Can you, the news believe O hapless soul!
Great love of the most high:
Offering salvation to man;
Showing the way to live;
Preparing him for eternity;
Expelling her from the world, and
Living the lifestyle of the master - 
It has to be so, now and hereafter

Our Path in LIFE

Our Path in LIFE

May the Lord be with us on every path you roam
May the Lord bring sunshine and happiness to surround us 
When ever we are far far from home
May we be faithful and true with whom we meat 

As we do unto others as we would have them do to us
May the Lord give us courageous and guide us on our path
And in His heart we will always remain

May the Lord be with us with His light to help our path
May the Lord build a stairway to heaven when we reach the end of LIFE's path
And may we never live a LIFE in vain
And in His heart we will always remain

And when we finally fly away, we will be praying that we served Him well
As all the wisdom that God gives us no one could never tell
But whatever path we choose, He'll be right behind to help us

Who do you think you are?

What makes you think you can play with people's hearts and tear lives apart. 
walking away without even thinking twice that you may have left scars...

Who do you think you are?

How can you be so two faced and wicked, and try to slander someone else to try 
to win points for yourself- Like a child playing a play ground game?

Who do you think you are?

Why must your need for attention swallow other people's souls, why cant you go 
to hell alone- leave us Christian folks alone! Quit trying to destroy and build up 
your own!

Who do you think you are?

I watch you tears and see the show but my spirit won't allow me to get drawn into 
the hole- that you've begun to dig- an I refuse to bow down to ANYONE who is 
Satan's friend- you'll never win!

Who do you think you are?

You better recognize I am a child of God.
You better recognize what is right and what is wrong.
You better leave me alone- I am sure I am saved.
I know who is gonna win this race-but the question is...

Who do you think you are?
(I'll pray the Lord reveals that to you)

NOTE: The person I dedicated this lyric to, that I just couldn't no matter how hard I 
tried I couldn't make friends with them (in church) passed away of a heart attack 
that same year, she left behind a 21 year old husband and 5 children....PLEASE 
take these lyrics to heart and ALWAYS make sure you are in the right with God- 
and your christian family before your card is pulled...She never got a chance to 
make ammends and us become friends, I pray God didn't hold her to that 
charge...She is forever in my heart...
