My God Is!!!

My God is That Star that shine brightly even in the light of day, shining brighter than even the brightest sun-ray, in the darkest seasons of life; my God is The Illumination illuminating my pathway, and it’s to my God; in His Son Jesus name that I always pray, because;

My God Is!!!

The One who has set me atop eagles wings and allowed my spirit to soar, The One who walks with me through the valley of death so I don’t have to fear when I hear the lions roar, The One who saved my soul even while the enemy’s trickery and deception had it’s hooks deep down in my being’s core

My God Is!!!

The Air, The Water, The Food in which I ceaselessly breath, saturate and feed, He’s The Rock upon which I stand, He is The Way, so I would be remiss to “not” follow His lead, for me, He’s enough, in Him I have all I need

You’re my everything, everything, everything, this is the song that I sing, to The One and Only Lord of Lord’s, and King of every King

He told Moses to tell the people: “I Am” sent you, (Exodus 3:14) and I believe with all that I am;

My God Is!!!

Life Is An Expression Of God’s Artistry!!!

The entire world and everything within it is God’s canvas to display His mastery of art, though, my God didn’t create mankind to be robots; therefore it’s up to us as individuals to surrender that artist’s brush; from it, be willing to part

Placing it in the Hand of “The Creator of The Universe”. allowing Him to paint the picture of our lives, intricately, gracefully, according to His divine plan, see, every vision, every dream, every gift, every skill, every talent that we posses was given to us to be expressions of God’s artistry

The Master’s artistry openly displayed, just as crafty and precise as the waters of the deep and the firmament that He laid

Not to mention the birds, the bee’s, the mountains, the trees,

The sun, the moon, the stars, the clouds; the rain, the wind, the snow, and my artistic God is still creating today, because scientist even say: the universe continues to expand, it continues to grow

Yet, mankind is our artistic Heavenly Father’s most precious creation, and He made a promise in His Word that He will continue the Good Work in which He has begun to do within us, until our Lord’s return, though we must surrender the brush, then our spirit’s will experience less confusion, less vexation

Surrender is key, therefore believe and receive,

Life Is An Expression Of God’s Artistry!!!

 

 

 

If God Allowed It!!!

If God Allowed It!!!

Whatever come my way each day is allowed by God for His purpose, however, His purpose; my finite mind is not always able to comprehend; but then, my faith kicks in, which enables me to stand as the tree that’s planted by the river, not easily broken, not easy to bend

If God Allowed It!!!

Whatever come my way each day, I know I can bare, because I know, through it all my God is pulling me closer to Himself, I know He’s not trying to destroy me, I know that, more than anyone else, my God care

Whatever come my way each day He’s right here with me in the midst thereof, reminding me: my struggle “IS NOT” with flesh and blood, and in Him lies my strength and ability to soar high above

Every storm, every trial, every tribulation, every agitation, all have upon them my Father’s acclamation

For my spiritual growth and maturity, they’re tailor made to fit, and The Word of God calls me: “More” than a conqueror , so whatever come my way each day, I know I can conquer,

If God Allowed It!!!

In A Moment, In The Twinkling Of The Eye!!!

In A Moment, In The Twinkling Of The Eye!!!

My Lord is “The” Lord of Lord’s, He’s “The” King of Kings, He put on flesh and visited this earth, once as a sacrificial lamb, though His return is eminent, He “Will” come again in His rightful position and glory to rectify all things

Every generation of those of us who believe, believed their generation would be the one to actually witness Jesus’ return, what I will say is, we’re definitely closer today than we were yesterday, and watching the world events of today, as well as studying The Word of God daily, strengthens my faith so that against the waywardness of this world my resolve may be stern,

No one knows the exact day, or the hour, but, we were told of some very telling signs to watch for by God Himself who in just one hand holds “All” power,

These signs that are clearly seen are increasing more and more, leaving me to believe, Jesus has risen from His seat at the Right Hand of The Father and has begun preparing to once again exit through Heavens door

He told us, regarding His coming again, be vigilant, He told us, regarding “His” Kingdom’s Business, be diligent

See we have an enemy, an adversary who’s a destroyer, a thief and a lair who wants us to believe his every lie, he definitely don’t want us to believe that Jesus “Is Coming Back”

Step By Step!!!

Step By Step!!!

My God has brought me a long way from where I started, mountains have been moved, and sea’s have parted

Though, to reach that place of destiny, it seems I still have a long road ahead, and discouragement creeps in when I set my gaze on the finish line; therefore I focus on my very next step instead

Meditating on The Word of God continually, so that, in Gods Word my steps may be ordered one at a time, it’s God’s Word through which I’m empowered to move forward regardless how steep the climb, even when it seem as though the climb has turned into a deep decline

My God can use any and every situation to make it work for my good, there’s lessons to be learned even when I fall short, when I don’t do as I should

When I think I see a short cut, and impatiently step off of God’s divine path, though it doesn’t take me long to do the math, to realize I’ve stepped in a direction leading to God’s wrath

Then I step back in line, with patience, and a renewed will to endure, knowing that the promises within God’s Word are true, and in The Word of God, I can stand sure

Knowing; my God is always on time, He’s never late, and He never allow anything to go to waste, He uses even the blood, sweat and tears that fall upon my plate

My God somehow, someway, miraculously use even my deepest pains for my own good, while simultaneously developing an eternal smile of glory on my face, see, I must be totally broken, which brings about a sense of humility, which allows The Spirit of my God to lead me into that destined place

Everyday there’s a spiritual battle going on within me, and everyday I’m realizing more and more that my enemy’s promises are not fulfilling at all, but rather hollow, and I get better at, not just hearing that still, small voice of God, but possessing The Holy Spirit’s power to follow

Step By Step!!!

A New Thing!!!

Isaiah 43:19 (KJV)

Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

 

A New Thing

A New Thing

 

I’ve applied all that I know,

but neutralized has been my flow,

stuck here in the wilderness, trying to move forward, and of my own will, trying to let go.

 

What used to work for me in the past, doesn’t work for me anymore,

so it’s this new thing that I now look for,

my God said: even in the wilderness He will provide an exit door.

 

In the midst of the desert, He will provide a river,

but in the meantime; I must walk by faith because the enemy is constantly in my ear saying: on His promises, God will never deliver,

then I tell the enemy all that my God has already done, then he begin to shake and shiver.

 

Then he turn and run away as I begin to gloriously sing,

to the one and only Lord of every Lord, King of every King,

but the enemy always return to me again with his enticing lies, and maybe even a bit of bling,

but even here in the wilderness; in this dry desert; I will not eat off of his plate, because I wait, I seek

A New Thing

A New Thing

 

As The Attacks Intensify!!!

As The Attacks Intensify!!!

 

Today, January 15th 2018 my wife and I received a report; “2” words no-one ever wants to hear, “Breast Cancer”; and though some did, neither my wife or I have shed a tear,

we have overcome so much together; so,

we know,

even in this, our God is near,

even,

 

As The Attacks Intensify!!!

 

We have put on the armor of God, and for this battled we have been prepared,

by the stripes of Jesus Christ we were healed, this is what the Living Word of God has declared.

 

Just a few years back,

against this “Cancer” attack;

it’s with my mother that I walked hand in hand,

and through God’s Word, His Love, His grace we thwarted what the enemy had planned,

 

now here we go again,

ready to prove to the enemy that it’s in God’s word in which we believe, it’s on God’s word upon which we stand.

 

As The Attacks Intensify!!!

 

My faith in my Lord grow stronger and stronger,

it’s through Him that we’re empowered with fortitude and tenacity; if the battle is short lived, even if it last longer.

 

In 2017 the attacks were none stop; financially,

relationally;

now their growing in intensity,

the devil just don’t see,

we know; he can’t destroy what The Heavenly Father said will be,

so as for me and my house, we’re saturated in the Peace of God, and His Serenity.

 

We know that the victory is already ours, in the here and now, and in the sweet bye and bye,

we know that before the enemy speak, he’s already a lie;

even,

 

As The Attacks Intensify!!!

 

Thank You Jesus…

More Than Anything Else!!!

Acts 4:13 (KJV)

Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.

 

Psalm 91:1 (KJV))

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

 

More Than Anything Else!!!

 

The presence of my God in every area of my life,

the power of His living word flowing freely, from the depths of my spirit, through my lips cutting the enemy deeply, as would a double edge knife.

 

This,

this above all else is my desire,

so, of the daily seeking of more of God’s presence, I will not tire.

 

While the majority continue to go hard after diamonds, gold and a prestigious name,,

I will continue to stand in the minority; unapologetically; and with no shame.

 

Though there’s times when the temptation for me to follow along,

is stronger than strong.

 

But, I know The Light, which is even stronger; and, can provide for me the power to overcome those enticing temptations,

and the ability to use godly wisdom in all situations.

 

And it’s this that I want;

 

More Than Anything Else!!!

 

Because in the presence of God is fullness of joy,

though Satan has a host of demons ready to deploy,

ready to steal, kill and destroy.

 

Thankfully there’s a secret place, and it’s found in the shadow of The Most High,

I’m learning; everything outside of this place is a smokescreen setup by the devil himself, who works nothing but deceit; he’s the father of every lie,

therefore, everything within me that’s hindering me from receiving more; “Must Die”.

 

I desire more of the presence of my God,

 

More Than Anything Else!!!

 

Lamentations 3:21-26 (KJV)

21) This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.

22) It is of The Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed,

because His compassions fail not.

23) They are new every morning; great is Thy faithfulness.

24) The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in Him.

25) The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him.

26) It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of The Lord.

 

 

 

 

                                      FREEDOM!!!                   20171030_172215.jpg

Eternal freedom was given to us at The Cross on Calvary over two thousand years ago,

but; the journey to full understanding of the power in this freedom is a long, dark and winding road, which at times causes us to forget what we know,

the rains fall, the winds blow,

our enemy is ever present trying to steal freedoms righteous glow,

trying to distract us from moving in freedoms perpetual flow,

though;

 

Freedom is a state of mind,

freedom will cause the eyes to open of those who are blind,

freedom is peace, even when the situations of life are unkind,

while the enemy wants us bound, freedom has the power to unbind.

 

This is a freedom which is not easy to receive,

a freedom which is almost too good to believe,

especially when the devil is constantly in our ear speaking words meant for nothing other than to deceive,

it’s in The Word of our God that this freedom is found, so it’s to The Word of our God is to what we must cleave.

 

In this freedom is found the courage to be me,

not the me that others think I should be,

but the me that my God has called, chosen and predestined me to be,

this freedom enables me to see,

not just naturally,

but also the things concerning me spiritually;

not just the here and now, but also those things lasting throughout all eternity.

 

Monetarily, this freedom don’t cost us a thing,

though it does require us, to, on this long road, through it all, to faith tightly cling,

it does require us to leave certain things, that on this road, we just can’t bring,

but it also delivers unto us a self worth that’s wrapped up in God’s purpose; not this world’s riches and bling,

weather rich or poor this freedom enables us, that, to our Lord we continue to gloriously sing.

 

This freedom supplies us with the knowing that “ALL” things are working together for our good,

it assures us, that we won’t miss a blessing for being out of place, for not standing in patient obedience like we should,

this is not a freedom to satisfy our own selfish will, but this freedom empowers us to really do what Jesus would.

 

Unfortunately, this freedom is not manifested over night,

it take time to realize; we don’t have to fight,

the battle is mine says The Lord, and when we wait on The Lord to do it, we can rest assured that it’s done right,

knowing that when we continue to move forward in obedience, we will see freedoms light.

 

But not before, at times; taking a step forward only to take two steps back,

so tenacity,

is a key,

so keep pushing forward believing that God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness, and His hand is never slack,

remember, this is not a sprint, or a quick lap around the track,

and there’s always something to learn when we must, for a season, suffer lack.

 

Who The Son sets free is free indeed,

and freedom was offered to us all when Jesus laid His life down, when our sins caused Him to bleed,

our Savior has already planted the seed,

now we must be willing to follow His lead.

 

It’s ours already,

but we have a responsibility to walk in obedience, and to walk steady;

and even when we fall short, God’s grace and mercy is there to lift us up and set us back on the road to full manifestation of this eternal,

God given

 

Freedom!!!

 

 

 

Marching Forward!!!

I’ve received my marching orders from “The Most High”,

I’m no longer listening to the enemy who does nothing but lie,

no longer deceived by the trinkets that he strategically place before my eye,

with the purpose of stopping this process, but I’m marching straight down the runway preparing to fly,

I’m;

 

Marching Forward!!!

 

I’ve been through the hottest spots of this fire,

preparation is never fun, never easy but the need is dire,

through it all the spirit of tenacity has been developed within me, so before I obtain, I will not tire,

I’ll be;

 

Marching Forward!!!

 

Out of darkness, out of confusion,

marching straight past all of Satan’s optical allusions,

guarding my life against his demons unwarranted intrusions.

So I continue;

 

Marching Forward!!!

 

In more truth, with more love and more zeal,

despite how bad the situation may look, despite how I may feel,

obeying that still small voice which I know to be real,

I’m;

 

Marching Forward!!!

 

Not in any rush, but at a steady pace,

staying in my own lane, running my own race,

daily seeking, not just my God’s hand, but also His face,

and I’m able to continue;

 

Marching Forward!!!

 

Not allowing my own selfish will to get in God’s way,

but rather allowing my God to continue molding me as a potter does His clay,

while I continue to give Him “ALL” the glory for renewing His mercies in my life day, by day,

I’m;

 

Marching Forward!!!

 

Through the valley and over the hill,

courageously moving forward, even when moving is no joy, no thrill,

allowing the enemy to see, that though he may have stolen a lot from me,

my destiny and purpose he “COULD NOT KILL”,

and I’m still,

 

Marching Forward!!!20171019_184041_Burst01.jpg
