My Rock!!!

The rains fall, the winds blow; things are being shaken all around,

yet my feet are firmly planted on solid ground,

my soul is deeply rooted in Truth that’s sound;

by Truth I’ve been captured, by Truth I’ve been found,

therefore, by fear, I will not be bound.

 

See, Truth picked my heart just as a thief would pick a lock,

once my heart was picked and pricked; I couldn’t turn away, I could’t throw a block,

now my name is written in The Lambs book of Life, so regardless how major or how frequent the storms; I win, because I’m among Truth’s eternal flock,

Jesus is The Way, The Truth, The Life; He’s also;

My Rock!!!

 

Psalm 62: 1-2 (KJV)

  1. Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from Him cometh my salvation.
  2. He only is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my Defense; I shall not be greatly moved

In The Potter’s Hands!!!

Jeremiah 18:3-6 (KJV)

3) Then I went down to the potter’s house, and behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.

4) And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.

5) Then the word of the Lord came to me saying,

6) O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? Saith the Lord. Behold as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.

In The Potter’s Hands!!!

I was marred by sin, inconsistent, inadequate and incomplete,

though I thought I was winning, I knew no defeat.

I was all caught up in the enemy’s trickery, deception and lies,

I had a different world view, I perceived life naturally; completely closed were my spiritual eyes.

Even then my God had His hands on me,

reshaping, remolding, preparing me.

He is far from done, but my God has wrought a work deep down in my soul,

I have a new sense of purpose, pleasing my God is now my only goal.

Even before the foundation of the Earth was laid; for you, and for me, God had victorious plans,

so, through the sunshine, through the rain,

I will remain

In The Potter’s Hands!!!

I Won’t Be Moved!!!

I Won’t Be Moved!!!

 

Here I stand at the foot of The Cross,

standing as obedient as I know how, though I’ve experienced much loss,

my losses were nothing more than setups leading me into total dependence on my Lord and Savior, “The Big Boss”.

 

I have learned to leave every situation in the hands of my God, then watch Him, out of the bad; manifest good,

in the most deadly attacks from the enemy, it’s faith in my God’s grace, mercy, favor and agape love that I have stood,

I can’t turn back now, but I wouldn’t even if I could.

 

This is where I find peace in the midst of turmoil,

this is where I learn to plant my seed in Kingdom soil,

this is where I find rest after my hard labor and toil.

 

This is where I have found forgiveness for my past, present and future sin,

this is where I regain my assurance that, in the end;

“I Win”.

 

So here I stand at the foot of The Cross;

and I

 

Won’t Be Moved!!!

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

ABOVE THE STORM!!!

Screenshot 2016-04-11 at 11.32.20 PMStorms are a part of life, but not sent to destroy,rather to usher us into total surrender, submission and ultimately a place where peace passes all human understanding, and unspeakable joy.

Storms are sent to strengthen our faith and develop godly character and integrity, but we must keep our eyes on the Trinity, while being led into total serenity.

And this is how we fly,

ABOVE THE STORM!!!

In the midst of the bitter and cold, this is how we stay warm, by staying focused on Him who gives us grace when within our flesh lies a great thorn.

The mighty hand of God is upon you and I, He’s perpetually preparing us for when it’s above the storm that we must fly.

These storms are not meant to kill us in the midst thereof, but to teach us how to soar like an eagle by remaining focused on our Lord  who looks low but is seated at the right hand of The Father, who is seated high above,

in Heavenly places, where our spirit can also dwell, being captivated by angelic faces.

All while being surrounded by the demons that the storm has brought in, sent to steal, kill and destroy by offering us a deceptive way to win, they would have us to focus on the storm, causing fear and a greater temptation to sin.

But it’s,

ABOVE THE STORM!!!

This is where we were created to soar, defeating the enemy in his game of war.

Boldly professing God’s word, but God’s word can only be professed when God’s word is heard.

We must study to show ourselves approved, we must stand as the tree that’s planted by the water of the river and not be moved.

Victory is yours, victory is mine, “this” we must stand on right in the middle of the storm where the sun does not shine, but the Power of the Son is ever so strategic, ever so divine.

It’s His Holy Spirit that will lead us every step of the way, our part is to trust and obey, listening diligently to the words that the Holy Spirit say.

If you can’t hear His voice at this particular time, then stand still on what He has already said, knowing that His promises to you are not dead,

but fully alive indeed, and the storms bring water and nutrition to your planted seed, the storms are not at all comfortable, but for the storms, there is a need.

These storms we must go through, I believe these are to see if it’s to our faith that we’re willing to remain true, if we are willing to allow the Holy Spirit to lead us through.

It’s the witnessing of our Heavenly Father bringing us through the storms that builds muscle to our faith, and character to our spiritual form, it’s then that we are ready to soar like an eagle,

ABOVE THE STORM!!!

That Name!!!

image

That Name which is above every name, in Heaven, and here on Earth,
This is the Name that holds the highest value, it holds the most worth.

There is healing in That Name, deliverance in That Name, total freedom in That Name,
It’s now over two thousand years after the sinless life, crucifying death and His resurrection, and That Name still has world wide fame,
though many “still” reject His claim.

In That Name lies salvation,
it’s to That Name that we are to give hours upon hours of meditation,
it’s in That Name that we find strength and courage to move forward with no fear, no hesitation,
it’s That Name that gives us hope in a hopeless situation.

It’s to This Name that “EVERY” knee will bow, “inevitably”,
this is That Name that has ultimately,
set us free,
free from the consequences of our sin and iniquity.

He’s The Lord of lord’s, King of kings,
joy deep down in one’s soul is what He bring,
and from that point it’s songs of thanksgiving that we sing.

It’s through the power of That Name that we are able to go straight to our Heavenly Father to plead our case,
He gave an invitation, saying: come to Me when you are wearied in your race.

At the mentioning of That Name satin himself will flee,
if you don’t believe me,
then taste for yourself and see.

The Lord “is” good,
His Name is Jesus and I promise, you will never again be the same,
once you call out, submit and surrender to;

That Name!!!

Philippians 3:13

image

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!!!

image

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!!!

image

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!!!
