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

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~~

Psalm 84:10
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.

Psalm 91:1
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
of one mind, having compassion for one
another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted,
be courteous;
