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

 The Off Track Conversation
 

“How far back did you start?”
The left rail asked the right.
“I thought we started out together…”
“Yeah, sorry, my mind has taken flight.”
 
“It was rough getting through
This rocky mountain range…
All those explosions…the dynamite…
Made me feel just a little bit strange”
 
“Yeah, Lefty, I understand
I lost a few cross ties.”
“It ain’t no fun getting spit upon
 When all that doggone gravel flies!!
 
Don’t know where they order
Their spikes from now-a-days
And I’ve got complaints about the guys
 Who work to level right of ways!”
 
“Yeah, Lefty, but think a bit…
Focus on the positive.
 I know we’re laying down our lives
But, tell me, what else could we give?
 
We’re just a couple hunks
Of steel but we’re real strong.
And, Lefty, this gives me a feeling
That, well, I finally do belong.
 
We’re doing something good…
Remember the God-Man?
He laid down His life and think
 About the years His story ran.
 
It’s still spoken of in awe…
After all, He’s God, my friend.
I say let us bring on the train!
This conversation’s reached an end!

The train is running Bibles…

Lefty, there’s a verse for you!
God can put you back together!
And you will be as good as new! "

Hebrews 12:14
Pursue peace with all people, and holiness,
without which no one will see the Lord...

Romans 12:18
If it is possible, as much as depends on you,
live peaceably with all men.

Philippians 2:3
Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit,
but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.

James 3:17-18
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure,
then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits,
without partiality and without hypocrisy.
Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

Proverbs 22:3
A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself,

but the simple pass on and are punished.
