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

Whom Is In Control?

(Something To Think About)
 
When will we recognize
We’re not puppets on a string!
Nor are we pieces in a puzzle
Too powerless to change a thing!
 
We’re supposed to run this planet…
It’s our responsibility.
Didn’t God give us control?
That’s what His Word keeps telling me!
 
If God was always in control
Do you believe He would allow
The traditions of mere men
To stand like some sacred cow?
 
Wouldn’t He, at least, prevent
The distortion of His Word?
To think He is allowing this
Is so totally absurd!
 
If He’s in complete control,
Why is He permitting rape?
Malice, murder, the ugliness
 Mankind cannot escape?
 
Could He be allowing cancer
To touch a little child?
Seems, then, He’d be a terrorist
And be totally reviled!
 
And what about starvation
On some parts of this earth?
How could a loving, giving God
Permit such stuff to birth?
 
Man wants to put all blame on God…
He is sovereign, isn’t He?
When will we open up our eyes?
When will we really see?
 
God will fulfill His Word to us…
But we must do our part.
We’ve got to make this planet work…
We’ve got show the world God's heart!
 
Until Christ comes to rule and reign,
God has placed us in control.
WE are required to save the planet…
  HE is required to save the soul!

~~Dedicated to Sally~~

~~Author's Note~~
I believe I was led by God to write
this poem. I'm not asking you to believe
what this poem states unless you
choose to believe it...but I read something
that got me to thinking...and I only ask
that you study the scriptures and think
about it. I've heard too many "it was God's
Will that this happened" when I KNOW a
good and loving God couldn't possibly will
such a thing. There is no killing, stealing,
etc. in Heaven because God is in complete
control...this will be the case on earth when
Jesus returns to rule...because there is none
of this when God is in control. Until then, we
can give Christ control of our lives... He won't
just take control without our permission...He's granted
us free will. It's up to us to save the planet...He saves
the souls!
We all know who the thief is...and it is NOT God!
Please do not misunderstand this message...God is
ALL powerful...He CAN do any and all things...but He
will NOT go against His own Word...He put man in control
of the earth...it's an established fact.
    
                                                  
 



Genesis 1:27-28
So God created man in his own image
, in the image of God created he him; male and female
 created he them.  And God blessed them,
 and God said unto them, Be fruitful , and multiply
, and replenish the earth, and SUBDUE it :
and have DOMINION over the fish of the sea,
 and over the fowl of the air, and over every living
 thing that moveth upon the earth.
 
Psalm 115:16
The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD'S:
 but the earth hath he GIVEN to the children of men.
 
Psalm 89:34
My covenant will I NOT break , nor ALTER
 the thing that is gone out of my lips.
 
John 10:10
The thief does not come except to steal,
 and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that
 they may have life, and that they may have
 it more abundantly.
