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

Part Two…The Jordan River’s Ready

 
In a previous poem
I expressed my dismay
With churches in general
And the preachers who prey
 
On congregations so needful
Of a gospel that’s sound…
 And with ungodly government
Who has put my God down.
 
While all of it’s true
And my convictions still hold…
 There are always two sides
To every story that’s told.
 
Because for each politician
With an ace up his sleeve…
There is one who deals straight
With no thought to deceive.
 
And for every imposter
With a Bible in hand
There’s a good honest pastor
Who will faithfully stand
 
On the true Word of God
To deliver it well…
Who will lead souls to Heaven…
 Warn them about Hell.
 
I am simply a poet
With a calling to write.
I’m no prophet or preacher…
I just bring words to light.
 
If you believe in my work…
If it’s of worthy content…
If it’s truly of God…
Then my time is well spent.
 
The Jordan River is ready
As I’ve stated before…
There’s another Word waiting
To help us cross to that shore.

~~Dedicated to Vera (Redgrackle)~~
 
Matthew 10:27
What I tell you in the 
light,
 and what you hear whispered, proclaim on
 the housetops.
 
Acts 10:42
And He commanded us to preach to the people
 and to testify that he is the one appointed by God
 to be judge of the living and the dead.
 
2 Timothy 4:2
Preach the word; be instant in season,
out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with
 all longsuffering and doctrine.
