ALL LIVES MATTER

ACRES OF DIAMONDS

ON ASSIGNMENT

HEAVENLY CHOICES

SATAN'S PLOT



THE MUSIC OF LIFE

MY MIRACLE

HOPE AND FAITH

CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST JESUS

Live-streaming

THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE

SPIRITUAL THINGS

AIN'T NO ROCK

20/20 Vision

PROTECTING OUR BLINDSIDE

HE CHOOSE ME

SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD

TREASURE BOX

SETTLED OUT OF COURT

JESUS KNEW

BASKET OF EGGS

The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY

IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART

BLIND MEN

STAY IN YOUR LANE

THE MESSIAH'S SEAT

THE SILENT CRY

THE SINFULNESS OF SIN

THE GLORY OF GOD

MORE THAN JUST A BABE

GOD'S GUARDIAN ANGELS

SHAME, OH SHAME, AMERICA

Temple of God
 
Have you thought of yourself as a temple
  Housing The One from above?
The Son and the Spirit abide in your bosom
You’re furnished with Father God’s love
 
 O, isn’t the thought overwhelming?
You rooming the Heavenly Dove?!
A mere earthen vessel with varied defections
Veiling this treasure thereof
 
Your temple is trimmed in God’s favor
Painted with power galore
Your ceiling can reach the highest of Heavens
 A welcome to faith mats your floor
 
Each window pane sparkles with promise
Each door graces one Angel guard
 Cupboards are crammed with gifts of the Spirit
The kitchen spurts scents of the Lord
 
The furnace is fired with forgiveness
The basement is bursting with song
The front porch is usually open for prayer
And the Light on the back porch stays on
 
You’re a welcoming sight to a sinner
Whose journey through life left them cold
Yes, you are a temple the Lord God can live in
To welcome lost sheep to His fold

Dedicated to Pastor Wanda
whose Word inspired this poem



With the help of the Holy Spirit who
lives in us,
 protect the good treasure that has been entrusted to you.
2nd Timothy 1:14
 
Do you not know that you are a temple of God
 and {that} the Spirit of God dwells in you?
1st Corinthians  3:16
 
 
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels,
 so that the surpassing greatness of the power
 will be of God and not from ourselves;
2nd Corinthians 4:7
