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

Life Does Have A Purpose


Life is much more than a process
Of getting over the next hill.
Age is really just a number
So make it count for all it will.

If Heaven is our destination
It’s simply a continued climb…
And the best thing to remember
We climb one day at a time.

Yes, the body tends to weaken…
It’s destined to get old and frail.
But the core of who we really are
Was designed to never fail.

So spiritually speaking
We must go from strength to strength.
And the life within our years
Should matter much more than the length.

If there is total trust in Jesus…
If we live our lives in Him…
Then we’ll always see what lies ahead
Though our vision may grow dim.

Sometimes bad things will happen…
Often times illness will prey…
But in response to all that happens
We must trust Jesus all the way.

If we give thought to His power…
The depth and breadth of all His love.
We're assured we'll never walk alone...
Because we're sheltered from above.

We are but on a pilgrimage…
We are simply passing through…
But while we’re here we must complete
What God would have us do.

For, indeed, life has a purpose…
It’s been assigned to everyone.
And for us it isn't finished
Until we hear the words "Well done."

~~Dedicated to Sally~~

Psalm 84:5-7
Blessed is the man whose strength is in You,
Whose heart is set on pilgrimage.
As they pass through the Valley of Baca,
They make it a spring;
The rain also covers it with pools.
They go from strength to strength;
Each one appears before God in Zion
.


2nd Corinthians 4: 16-18
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though
outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly
we are being renewed day by day. For our
light and momentary troubles are achieving
for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen,
but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary,
but what is unseen is eternal.

Romans 8:37-39
No, in all these things we are more than
conquerors through him who loved us. For
I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels
nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come,
nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything
else in all creation, will be able to separate us from
the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Mathew 25:21
His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good
and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over
a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things
enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
