Their humble characteristics are recognizable,
with a lifestyle lacking excess and opulence;
familiar with the idea of “sowing and reaping”,
they know their actions always have consequence.
Apostles of Christ examine ways of Kingdom building,
and are not tied to one specific church location,
for their daily needs are not hierarchically-based.
They avoid wants of gratuitous, personal recognition.
Operating with a pure heart, free of lust for…Continue

Something great is happening for me,
regardless of the situations I see;
my Lord is working behind the scene
and I have been spiritually weaned.
Walking by faith and not by sight,
insures that I sleep well at night.
Happily I enter daily into His rest,
knowing that I’m divinely blessed.
I’m often filled with peace and joy,
when sacred Scriptures are employed;
with a heart of a believer’s trust,
I overcome the pain of being concussed

I’ve decided to not live in fear;
I can do all things through Christ,
Who, with His Word, strengthens me;
God loves this child- unconditionally!
I love different kinds of people
and enjoy helping them with my gifts.
I’ve decided to be difficult to offend;
quick to forgive, repent and befriend
others in the forming of relationships,
helps me in my solo pursuit of peace.
There’s no point to mindlessly hurry,
scurrying about with needless…

How can I not be full of contentment?
God is not a Man, that He would lie.
On a daily basis, His promises flow;
He is the Source, on Whom I can rely.
Despite the surrounding difficulties,
I’ve purposed to accept His sacred Word;
therefore, I will continue to stand firm,
by His grace and loving messages heard.
His everlasting mercies are renewed;
I remain girded by His faithfulness!
With the thankfulness of my frail heart,
I am still unable to…

Within the sacred music of worship,
we’re to open our hearts and sing;
flowing from our tongues should be…
genuine praises for Christ our King!
Though the structure of songs vary
between spirituals, hymns and psalms,
in every instance, we acknowledge Him
with our uplifted bosoms and palms.
In making joyful noises unto our Lord,
there’s a freedom of melodic release;
unashamedly, we honor Him together-
contented in our sense of inner…

Do I need to repeat bad mistakes
of judgment as the prodigal son?
Does shortcomings of Christianity
prevent me from having some fun?
Having a head filled with knowledge
and a restless spirit yearning to feel,
when I’m completely pulled unto Him,
how much of my true self is revealed?
Born into this earthly realm of sin,
I begin life already missing His mark;
falling short of divine perfection,
unto His voice alone I must hearken

In Him alone, I find perfect rest for my spirit.
My soul’s satisfaction is girded by Salvation;
Christ is my rock, my fortress of protection,
and the lasting source of my Faith’s foundation.
In Him alone, I place my entire, unshaken trust.
Today, the enemy continues to assault my soul,
using his pain weapon of lie-laden speech;
yet, His Love exudes power that makes me whole.
In Him alone, I have placed my heart’s hope.
My dependence, remains on…

Absolutely essential, for saved people,
is the true concept of Christian ideals.
For they serve as inspirational guidelines,
in the development of holy, inner steel.
These ideals motivate Christians to action,
on behalf of the Christ, within His Will.
In addition, one strives to humbly live,
without the trappings of religious frills.
These principles affect one’s attitude,
in doing what aught to be done in service.
They provide vision with sacred…

Salvation is near.
Lift up your voice,

Soften our hearts,

draw us closer to You;
keep us, in one accord!
Your mercy is here.

Ongoing failures of the Church to act,
will guarantee the sure success of evil;
for faith without works is… still dead
and visible today is spiritual upheaval.
The internal chasm between the members
of both sides -the presbytery and laity-
must be bridged with faithful cooperation,
girded with policies that last permanently.
Even today, God is quietly waiting on the Body,
while the unsaved are queued up for Hell.
Individual Faith is a person’s…

We’re not to vex or grieve the Holy Spirit;
instead, we need His anointing on our lives
to spiritually achieve personal victories
and that faith in God- is continually revived.
Being rooted and established in His Love,
we can be dispensers of the Spirit’s fruit-
Manifesting these traits on a daily basis
should be behind the desire of a Holy pursuit.
Peace, Patience, Love, Goodness, Faithfulness,
Joy, Kindness, Gentleness and…

There seems to be ongoing confusion,
regarding the ministry of good works.
After all, Christianity is a lifestyle
and responsibility must not be shirked.
Don’t be deceived by the religious leaders
saying ‘it doesn’t matter in what you believe’.
For the righteousness of Christ is available,
as soon as His promise, you willingly receive.
We are clearly taught within The Word,
that ‘real faith without works is dead’.
Although there is value with…

Blessed are the mild and long-suffering,
for they alone shall inherit the earth;
their happiness and contentment comes…
from only understanding their Godly worth.
Not worried about accusations against me-
my Lord continues to defend His children.
My Lord is the eternal and heavenly advocate
and His Blood overcomes all affects of sin.
Real meekness… is strength under control,
while gentleness demonstrates self-constraint
in the midst of…

Can I ever appreciate metaphysical studies
on the very nature of being and existing,
without consideration of God my Creator,
when I’m an extension of His breathing?
Did He not breathe life into Adam’s lungs?
Without Him, I can do nothing meaningful;
doesn’t practical application of The Word
teach me to live peacefully with life full?
I don’t require divine power to sit idly by,
since God acts when I chose to share my gifts.
He provided direction…

What is the full depth of my inner soul?
How far does it fall short of infinity,
given the known limits of my being human?
Can all of the crevices, cracks, fissures,
scissures and abyss of the empty places
in my soul be filled when I desire Your Presence
to consume every void of my existence?
While complaining, gossiping, and rage
can grieve Your Holy Spirit, I’m only posing
these questions… to expand my understanding.
I’m thankful that You…

Are you bearing good fruit?
Are you hungry for victory
and for more of His Presence?
Are you alive to righteousness
and Christ’s divine essence?
Faith without loving works
is still considered dead;
are you part of a local body?
What are you doing today?
What is it, that you embody?
From the greatest exchange,
our raggedness for His glory,
taken was our sinful shame-
Hallelujah to The Lord!
Hail to His Holiest Name!

Use the correct perspective,
based on God’s spiritual view-
for there will be Goliaths,
standing defiantly before you.
Know that you’re His child!
Anyone can be strong, when leaning
on his relationship with Christ.
Run into the battle speaking…
against the hostile opposition,
when the situation appears grim.
Acknowledge your sacred covenant
and your divine identity in Him!
Though the enemy comes against you,
your weakness in the…

Although I’m still clay,
upon God’s pottery wheel,
He continues to mold me.
Fashioned after His image,
He reworks this human vessel
to accomplish what He sees…
in the combination of gifts
that were previously bestowed,
into this elysian creation.
Mirroring Christ’s brokenness,
I can share in His suffering,
from fully embracing Salvation.
Free of the law of sin and death,
my unveiled face radiates His Love,
as I am ‘taking…

The ‘Be happy attitudes’ uttered by Christ,
demonstrate a mindset that we need to embrace.
Hungering after God’s divine righteousness,
gives us comfort in His covering of grace.
Be dependent on God, for bearing good fruit;
know that it’s still wonderful to be blessed.
Everyone is important, since we’re His children;
unfortunately, not all will pass the sacred test…
of walking in the principles of God’s love.
Despite our status in life,…

Where one’s mind goes,
the Man will always follow.
Are you paying attention
to what may be tomorrow?
Faith always agrees with God
and the messages of His Word.
Take random thoughts captive.
Is it Him, that you’ve heard?
Be freed from mental bondages;
improve your thinking today.

and get a new life underway.
Meditate on the Scriptures.
