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

He’s Still Lord
 

If I were to count my sins
I’d never get it done.
I read the Ten Commandments
Knowing I broke every one.
 
If not in deed, I did in thought,
So my guilt I’ve firmly faced.
 I’d be heading straight for Hell
If those sins were not erased.
 
The Christ I’d met in childhood
I found just a fantasy.
So many mistakes later
 He was made so real to me.
 
O, but, what a revelation!!
  A visitation from above!!
Slain beneath His power,
I was baptized in His love!!
 
I knew in that very instance
He’d forgiven every sin.
It wasn’t just believing
It was knowing deep within!
 
The moment I rose to my feet
I was changed forever more.
He was calling me to serve Him
And He’d just opened the door.

 
It’s been forty years or better
Since that Holy Ghost encounter.
Yes, I stumbled some along the way
But He’s made me a rebounder.
 
 Once you’ve tasted of the Lord
There’s no way of letting go.
I wouldn’t want to, anyways,
Because I love my Savior so!
 
It hasn’t been all mountain tops…
All sweetness and all light.
I’ve walked through some dark valleys
But I’ve never lost the fight.
 
Some battles with the enemy
Have hit me pretty hard…
But God’s still in my corner
And, alleluia, He’s still Lord!!!

~~Dedicated to Carla~~ 


Psalm 34: 8
O taste and see that the LORD is good:
 blessed is the man that trusteth in him
  
Deuteronomy 2:7
 For the LORD thy God hath blessed
thee
 in all the works of thy hand: he knoweth
 thy walking through this great wilderness:
these forty years the LORD thy God
 hath been with thee; thou hast lacked nothing
 
Philippians 2:11
 And that every tongue should confess that
 Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father
