No longer will I allow you to take me to a place that I do not desire to be.

You see, I have conquired another fear that once lived inside of me.

I am not afraid to die, but I am afraid to live like the world

Having my life in a spiral like a storm out of control in a constant twirl.

My desire is to please the Almighty God of Heaven and Earth

Who gave His Only Begotten Son just to give me a new birth.

Whereever He leads me, there I am sure to follow.

Whatever… Continue

Can someone, please, tell me how to get back up again?

Can I reach high enough to grab the Master's hand?

Is it possible for me to turn from my wicked ways?

Will I be found worthy to give God all the praise?

Can anyone tell me how to forgive myself

When I have cheated on Him who is faithful, to please somebody else?

How could I defile this vessel that He had made clean

After He had forgiven the sin, the iniquity, and the evil He had seen?

How could I open… Continue

From the day that our parents conceive us before giving birth,

The Bible is the Believers Instructions Before Leaving Earth.

It is the Word of God which gives us power to live this life

To proclaim the victory even when we encounter strife.

It is filled with the LIVING word of our Father.

Yet to read it, some don't even bother.

It is what gives life to a dead or dying soul.

It is living water in which to wash and make us whole.

It is the foundation of all… Continue

I am sharing this poem to give you an AWESOME report

Of what it feels like to live in THE TRUE KING'S COURT.

Every morning, I am grateful as I rise from my bed.

I know that the King has provided my daily bread.

It is not just food for which my body can feast.

My spirit is covered as-far-as the west from the east.

I have the King's Only Begotten Son as my best friend.

The blood of Yeshua flows to hide all of my past sin.

Therefore the King has become my… Continue

I have had people to find it amazing that someone my age who has known a world of sin cannot be provoked to the use of foul language. I have even heard the words, "You are Holy for real." Now, exactly what does that mean? I do not and would never consider myself to be "Holier than thou" as some would put it. I do however do as our Savior did. I ask, "Whom say ye that I am?"

My ability to keep my conversation chaste is simple, and I would like to… Continue

My condolences do indeed go out to the Jackson Family. Being a huge Jackson 5 fan as a child, and completely taken with the Thriller, Moon Walk, and Billy Jean Era, I found myself shedding unexpected tears when I heard the news. It was shocking to me, but I heard God say, "Compassion; not because he was a star to the world, but because he was a soul who was loved of God."

Yes. We do weep with those… Continue

You may be in a storm, right now. The important thing to remember is that GOD controls the storm; He will put no more on you than you can bear. You are as a tree planted by the rivers of water, and God has allowed the storm to prune away EVERY loose and damaged branch that would hinder your growth. Any part of a plant that is damaged steals what is needed to feed the entire body and produce growth. Be patient, be thankful, and rejoice in the midst of the storm for it is the most peaceful place… Continue

On Thursday, July 3, 2008, God gave me the following message. He said, "Tell them, 'Husbands, love your wives as Christ also loved the church and GAVE his LIFE for IT. If you are beating on her, slapping her around, and abusing her, you are NOT loving her as Christ loved the church. For it was the church that persecuted Jesus. Yet, he LOVED the church, even unto death. When the CHURCH delivered him up to be persecuted, Christ YET LOVED the church. When he was spat on because of the action of… Continue

A sister asked the question, "How do you hold on living single as a Christian?"

First I would like to share the simple fact that I am and have been doing just that for a very long time. It can be done. Here is my PERSONAL testimony.

I had to TRULY grab a hold of and understand that the word of God says,

"Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them members of an harlot? God forbid."

"What? know ye not that he… Continue

Do you pray for those who hate and dispitefully misuse you? Not only should you pray for them, but inspite of the way that they treat you, do good to them (Luke 6:27-28). Come to realize that it is not the soul that is fighting against you and attempting to bring evil upon you; it is a spirit of evil and spiritual wickedness (Ephesians 6:12). Learn to have compassion for the lost soul, and realize that just as you once desired to be free from the evil which so easily beset you, that soul… Continue

While I was yet confused and lost,

Jesus shedded his blood after counting the cost.

Before he gave his life for you and I,

It was in the garden where his flesh did cry.

"Father, if Thy wilt let this cup pass from me,"

But his spirit stood up just to set man free.

"Nonetheless not my will, but Thy will be done,"

Was the cry by which that fleshly battle was won.

So that we could be redeemed and our souls could be saved,

Jesus took death's victory when… Continue
