Philippians 3:13

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.

Reaching Forth!!!

This past season of my life was saturated with confusion and pain,
heavy winds and plenty of rain,
it was the boat of faith that kept me afloat when the floods came.

Faith in the promises of God to those who beleive,
because sometimes we must go through Hell and back again before we really recieve.

Trials and tribulations,
broken relations,
missed expectations.

Tremendously hot was the fire’s flame,
some things were burned up, some things were lost along the way, but those things with a godly purpose for my future still remain.

I’m forgetting those things which are behind,
it’s through that agape love, grace and mercy of my God that I have a renewed mind.

No longer searching to the east, to the west, no longer searching to the south or to the north,
but rather it’s to the purposes of my Savior Jesus Christ that I will continue;

Reaching Forth!!!

Relentless Pursuit!!!

Pursuing relentlessly,
all that You my Lord have already predestined for me.

Lord You have given me visions, You have given me dreams,
You have given me the faith to know that things are not always what it seems.

You’ve given me the wisdom to know that the enemy is the great deceiver,
through my tribulations my Lord, You made me a stronger believer.

I surrender my will, I surrender my way,
training that spiritual ear within me to hear every word that You say,
placing myself in the palm of Your hands, so You my Lord can continue shaping, molding me as a potter does his clay.

Lord I am Yours, and You are mine,
so it’s no longer in the light of this wicked and lost world that I desire to shine,
but rather in the powerful light of Your Holy Spirit, and in Your perfect time.

Yes my Lord, my priorities have changed,
my thought process has been totally rearranged,
I’m purposed, so when trials do come, I no longer think it strange.

I realize, that trying to keep me from Your promises, the enemy won’t quit,
so abiding under the wings of the “ALMIGHTY” is where I’ll be, Lord, in Your presence is where I’ll sit.

Seeking marching orders from You,
as I go about doing Kingdom Business in a world which believes truth is false and false is true.

All while being intentional in watching for those “set” traps set by the very subtle, deceptive enemy, and Lord You know that I’m not perfect at it, but in the name of Jesus: my life “WILL” bear Your fruit,
give me strength my Lord, because this is, a,

Relentless Pursuit!!!

Beholding Your Glory!!!

Father God, beholding Your glory for me is a must,
in the midst of this wicked and perverse generation, it’s in Your glory that I trust.

This is the generation that heap all glory on self,
a generation which make god’s out of those with financial wealth.

But Father it is You,
it is You whom I give all praise, honor and glory too,
in the darkest seasons of my life Father, it was You who shone the light so I could see my way through.

So, the way that I see it, there is no glory if the glory isn’t Yours,
this is the glory that’s powerfully manifested even as I stand in front of closed doors

Father it’s Your glory that gives me patience, and faith to know,
that when You say no,
it’s not to hurt me, but rather to cause me to grow,
that through me, Your glory can show.

Heavenly Father, Your glory is not always seen through the natural eye,
so I strengthen my spiritual eye,
when daily, deep down in Your word I pry.

Your glory is here,
so I can walk by faith with no fear.

Thankful that the ignorant destruction of my past,
Father through Your loving kindness, grace and mercy, it didn’t last,
and through it all Lord, it’s Your strength that enables me to stand fast.

Father You are in the process of re-writing my story,
as I stand even now;

Beholding Your Glory!!!
