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

Glitz, Glamour, And Flash

 
Sometimes it just amazes me
How my God shows concern
About the little things that bother me
In this stream of live and learn.
 



I’ve seen these fancy descriptive words
Used maybe a time or two…
Poetically or otherwise
And I wondered…wished I knew…
 
Were these words meant unkindly?
Were they aimed in my direction?
 Perhaps toward a friend of mine?
Either case holds God’s objection.
 
 He’s not into childish games
And, quite frankly, I’m not either.
 I tend to question reasons for
These words that twist and teeter.
 
I do believe and will state here
With no intent to dramatize
That criticism out of control
Is repulsive in God’s eyes.
 
I asked Him if glitz and glamour
And flash are deemed taboo.
His answer almost floored me
And it might surprise you, too.
 
He said, “Please consider Heaven,
Because it is surely flash!
Streets of gold and gates of pearl…
It’s all splendor…it’s all splash!”
 
Heaven is over the top
As far as glitz and glamour goes…
 One might be disappointed
If one turns up one’s nose
 
Don't look down on those God's blessed
With a fancy home or car.
He is a very giving God...
Just remember who you are

 
What I’ve shared is meant to teach
To challenge one to think.
Spewing all these weedy words
Simply creates a stink
 
That drifts right up to Heaven
Straight to the Father’s Throne.
Prayerfully consider things...
Leave judging to God alone.

~~Author’s Note~~
The person or persons this is intended
to minister to will know it in their heart.
I’m not here to criticize or condemn…
simply to point to what God is saying.
 
Romans 14: 10-13
“Why do you criticize and pass judgment

on your brother? Or you, why do you look
down upon or despise your brother? For we
shall all stand before the judgment seat of
God. And so each of us shall give an account of
himself - give an answer in reference to judgment
- to God.
Then let us no more criticize and blame and pass
judgment on one another, but rather decide and
endeavor never to put a stumbling block or an
obstacle or a hindrance in the way of a brother.”
(The Amplified Bible)
