“Run Your Race Won” (poem)

Run, into the

Father’s arms.

 

Run, away from

World trapped charms.

 

Run, in lasting

Courage, not discouraged.

 

Run, chasing the

Will of the Father.

 

Run, swift as

A gazelle.

 

Run, race from the

the darkness hell.

 

Run, in the

beauty of holiness.

 

Run, your race

Won.

 

1 Corinthians 9:24 “Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.”

“He’s Our Friend ” (poem)

Oh child, I have never left.

I am by your side,

Please don’t forget, I pick

you up,

I am your friend.

 

My love, don’t you see

That you were meant to be,

Follow Me and you

Will find peace,

Take My hand,

I’ll show you My plans

I pick you up,

I am your friend.

 

I feel your pain

I know your hurt

That’s what I died for

That’s what I rose for. 

Don’t you get it now?

I left, and came back

So, you can live. I pick you up –

I am your friend.

 

Jesus, Jesus Jesus

He loves me, you, we, us – 

He’s our friend. 

 

John 15:13-14 “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down ones life for his friends. You are my friends if you do whatever I command you.”

What are you hungry for?

Matthew 5:6 “Blessed are thofwho hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.”

What you filling yourself with today? Is it the news? Is it netflix? I guess the right question would be, what are you hungry for? Peace. Joy. Hope. Love. I believe now more than ever our hearts are calling out to them all. I believe we hunger and thirst for something good to happen but something good did happen, 2000 years ago.

Isaiah 53:5-6 “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our inquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. All we like have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.”

Jesus Christ was and is His name! He knew where you were going to be at this season. He knew your sins, your struggles and your weaknesses.  Yet, He still loves us. He died for us on the cross. He was stripped, beaten, betrayed and humiliated.

Yet, you were on His mind. He wanted us to have freedom from sin. Freedom from fear. Freedom from oppression. Freedom from sickness and disease. Freedom from death. He did this all for us because He loves us and wants us to be free in Him. So no matter what comes our way we know our peace, joy, hope and love comes from Him. It is finished and He is risen! The blood of Jesus is on us, over us, beside us and all around us to protect us from all evil and cleanse is from all our sins only if we repent and make Lord Jesus Christ our personal Lord and Savior.

It wasn’t good how it happened to the Lord Jesus but it was good that it happened because where would we be without Him? Where would we be without Jesus? No where good. So, what are you hungry for? I know my heart is hungry for all He has given us because of His ultimate sacrifice for us to receive Peace. Joy. Hope. Love. Salvation.

Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

God bless you!

Don’t settle in the darkness.

There is much confusion these dark days. There is much uncertainty and wanting in these times. But, just as this brother said, it is not the people of God to remain in that place. The evil one wants to sift the people of God, but just as Jesus said to Peter in Luke 22:32 “But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brothers.” Jesus is praying for us to the Father. He is giving us strength, so we not lose strength, and we won’t because our source comes from Him. God is holding on to us. He has never left, even when you don’t see Him in your current situation. He is there holding on to you, protecting you and loving you and your family. Once we are strengthened we can strengthen others and give them hope, the hope of Jesus.

God is forgiving and He is merciful. Remember, what He has brought you from (so much) and what He currently is bringing you to because His promises are in His Word but also personal to you! You just have sit quietly and patiently waiting for Him to speak with you. Intimacy with the Lord is what we should strive for, and though it is not easy but now more than ever, it’s easier to BE STILL. Amen.

So, continue to seek Him. Continue to pray to Him. Continue to be in His Word. Continue to keep your mind and your eyes settled on Jesus. Don’t settle in the darkness but remember you are a light and THE LIGHT is Jesus. John 8:12 “Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, ‘”I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

 

Much love to you!

God bless you and God loves you, always!

The Battle is the Lord’s

 

 

Whatever you might be going through, know that the battle is the Lord’s. It’s a time of pressure, but coal that come under great pressure, comes diamonds. So, look up for your redemption draws nigh. Please, repent of your sins, give your life to Jesus because He is at the door, turning the knob and now is the time to take your faith more seriously.

Romans 10:9-10 “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made into salvation.”

Confess your hurts, your fears, your doubts, your struggles and your sins to God and ask for forgiveness that you have allowed these feelings to triumph over your faith. Faith cannot live with fear, you believe God, you believe in Jesus, good but now its time to receive that truth and walk in it. Read the Word of God. Pray. Fast. Seek Him. Draw nigh to the Lord and He will draw nigh to you.

James 4:7-10 ” Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil, and he shall flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double minded. Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up. ”

Now it’s time to humble ourselves before God and trust Him entirely. He loves us. He is for us. He cares. So, cast your burden on Him and allow Him to mold you for He is the potter and we are His clay.

Matthew 11:28-30 ” Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and My burden is light. ”

God bless you!
