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

Whispers In The Wind

 
Words whispered to another…
Words destructive and defaming
Are heard by Holy Angels…
Who are aware of what we’re claiming.
 
When Heaven’s Books are opened
 And every idle word recorded
Is read before the Judgment Seat…
Will we regret the strife we started?
 
It’s so easy to point fingers…
To ruin another’s reputation…
To speak of flash, glamour, and glitter…
To spread the stigma of sensation!
 
May God forgive our pettiness…
 Forgive our misuse of His Name…
If gossip’s writing our agenda…
He’s sure to put us all to shame.
 
If we’re claiming to be Christians,
May I ask what does it take?
I know Jesus didn’t whisper
He simply called a snake a snake.
 
He was honest and straightforward…
Attacked accusers face to face…
They all got hung by their own tongue
When He put them in their place.
 
Whispers come by dressed as giants…
Thinking they can take some on!
But giants are sometimes taken down
By just a tiny little stone!
 
Sometimes we fail to realize
Just how sneakily we’ve sinned…
Yet we’re serving Satan’s purpose
Each time we whisper in the wind.

~~Dedicated to Dandy~~
(Who's had some anonymous whispers posted to him) 

 
Proverbs 18:6-8
A fool's lips bring him strife, and his mouth
 invites a beating. A fool's mouth is his
 undoing, and his lips are a snare to his soul.
 The words of a gossip are like choice morsels;
 they go down to a man's inmost parts.
 

Ephesians 4:29
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of
your mouths, but only what is helpful for building
 others up according to their needs, that it may
 benefit those who listen.
 
James 3:10-15
Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing.
My brothers, this should not be.  Can both fresh water
 and salt water flow from the same spring?  My brothers,
 can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs?
 Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.
 
 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him
show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility
 that comes from wisdom.  But if you harbor bitter
 envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast
 about it or deny the truth. Such "wisdom" does not come
 down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, of the devil.
