ALL LIVES MATTER
ACRES OF DIAMONDS
THE MUSIC OF LIFE
HOPE AND FAITH
CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST JESUS
THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE
AIN'T NO ROCK
PROTECTING OUR BLINDSIDE
HE CHOOSE ME
SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD
SETTLED OUT OF COURT
BASKET OF EGGS
The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY
IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART
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

I Would Rather Have My God’s Approval
I would rather have my God’s approval
Then the highest of praises from men.
My greatest accomplishment in this world
Was when I was born again.
I would rather be humbled before Him
Than be lifted to any false high.
I would rather spend just one day in His courts
Than in pleasures that capture the eye.
I would rather look back to The Cross
Than ahead to a life on a limb.
For I’d rather have Jesus to hold on to me
Than to walk through this world without Him.
I would rather be naked than clothed
In the Satanic traps set for me.
I would rather be begging for crumbs from His cup
Than be banqueted by bigotry.
I would rather have God’s smallest blessing
Than the biggest of treasures to hold.
I would rather the promise of Heaven instead
Of dazzling diamonds or gold.
I would rather read God’s Words of wisdom
Than the world’s finest works any day.
I would rather be filled with the Spirit of God
Than be spiritual some other way.
I would rather believe that redemption
Will overcome all sin and all strife.
For I would rather have my God’s approval
More than anything else in this life.

~~Dedicated to Kathy~~
For a day in Your courts is better than
a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper
in the house of my God than
dwell in the tents of wickedness.
He that dwelleth in the secret place
of the most High shall abide under
the shadow of the Almighty.
1 Peter 3:8 NKJV
[ Called to Blessing ] Finally, all of you be
