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

SCENT OF THE SPIRIT
 
She watched closely while the curtains
Billowed in the wind.
She so loved the smell of rain...
In the fresh air blowing in.
 
She’d read somewhere where some child said
  Rain held the scent of God.
 She’d found this non offensive
Nor did she find it odd.
 
 After all, was not the Rose of Sharon
Related to His scent?
Were not myrrh, aloes, cassia?
 Perfumes of the Orient?
 
Did not the saved children of God
Hold the sweet savour of Christ?
 Did not rain and wind pound Calvary
Upon the Savior’s sacrifice?
 
Also, did not the Holy Spirit
Arrive as the sound of wind?
 Sights and sounds and scents of God
Should be pleasures to rescind.
 
She recalled the missionary
Sent to her native land…
The sacred scent of Holy Books
He'd placed within her hand.
 
Seemed every story was perfumed
   To saturate her soul
She smiled as curtains blew about…
She knew Christ was in control.

therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions
by anointing you with the oil of joy.
8All your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;"
 
2 Corinthians 2:15

in them that are saved, ......."

as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house
 where they were sitting".
