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!!!

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!!!

Pressing On!!!

image

Another year is soon to pass us by,
this has been a year of trial and tribulation, yet my faith didn’t die.

I’m preparing even now for all things becoming new,
It’s all a process and that’s why I had to go through what I went through.

I’m ready,
I haven’t walked perfectly, but in regard to God’s word I’ve walked steady.

Step by step, out of darkness, and into that place of purpose and destiny,
and even when it’s hard for me to see,
I stand, knowing that what God said will be, “will be”.

So, as I prepare to close this chapter of twenty fifteen and begin writing this new chapter of twenty sixteen,
I give less attention to my distractions and more attention to those things which are only spiritually discerned and seen,
I mean, I’m;

Pessing On!!!

No resolution,
no restitution,
just fruitful solutions.

No selfish motives or ambitions,
just desperately seeking God’s perfect will to come to fruition.

I’m going deeper,
with sights on a place where the gates are pearl, the streets are gold, so I won’t settle for less, that which is cheaper.

I started this journey a long time ago,
the struggle is real, but now more than ever, I know, that I know, that I know.

My God is The Truth, He’s Realer than Real,
He gives me power over Satin himself, who is here for nothing else but to destroy, to kill and to steal.

Despite the enemy’s attacks,
I wont, I can’t go back.

Forward movement is a must,
and all things working together for my good, is in what I trust.

So Satin, I rebuke you in Jesus name, be gone,
for the Spirit of The Lord is within me and I’m,

Pressing On!!!

Peace, Deep Down On The Inside!!!

image

This peace in which I obtain comes not from man, not from any situation, not from any circumstance,
not from song and not from dance.

This peace can’t be sold, this peace can’t be bought,
see this peace was manifested only after the face of my Lord and Savoir was diligently sought.

This peace is here and it’s here to stay,
it’s deep down on the inside so it cant just get up and fly away.

The enemy has tried to take my peace away though,
using his deceptive lies that didnt make it past go.

See, these are not even my battles so I don’t have to fight,
but rather keep my faith and focus on the one and only True Light.

His name is Jesus Christ and from me He has taken away my fear, arrogance and pride,
then He replaced it all with that great;

Peace, Down On The Inside!!!

Peeling Back The Layers!!!

image

There are many layers of this sinful flesh of mine,
peeling each layer back so that God’s glory can brightly shine.

This, by no means is a easy task,
but very necessary to reveal self to self by removing the mask.

I thought that I was almost there,
now I see that I don’t know what, don’t know when, don’t know where.

Though I do know who,
my Lord, my Savior; it’s Jesus that will continue that good work in which He has begun to do.

See, I have thought of myself higher than I ought,
and my faithful Lord and savoir has brought me to nought.

I give thanks to my Lord for me being in this place,
the peeling back of these layers is just preperation so that I may finish my race.

I came to the Lord just as I was, and He accepted me; but He loves me waaay too much to leave me that way,
this walk is not always clear, not always easy, not always fun; but from this walk I will not stray, I will not run.

So I ask for your prayers,
as I continue;

Peeling Back The Layers!!!

But God!!!

image

Temptation has come time and time again to overtake me,
It’s dark, and at times lonely in the midst of the valley.

This is where the “voice” of God is rarely heard,
where one’s vision is often blured.

This is where we must stand on what we “already” know,
with understanding that on the other side of this, God’ glory is sure to show.

The spirit indeed is stong, but the flesh is ever so weak,
temptation is coming and it’s power from on high that I diligently seek.

Then I turn and look to the side,
and temptation has jumped in to hitch a ride.

It’s in these situations that our Lord has promised to make a way out,
so I’ll stand strong in Him, I won’t slumber, I won’t complain and I won’t pout.

But rather give praise and honor to my Lord in any and every situation,
even temptation.

Then sit back and watch how He divinely intervene,
and in ways that I never could have seen.

When it’s all said and done,
and the battle has been won!

Those who has witnessed this valley, wilderness experience will look and say;

But God!!!
