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

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

Until My Light Goes Out


I have never had the glittering
Stage presence of a star.
I am really just a simple poet
And my shine may not reach far.

But, the one thing I know for certain...
The one thing I’ll never doubt
Is I will always shine for Jesus
Until my light goes out.

My poetry’s not prestigious
Although it has been recognized...
It’s won its share of trophies
But its mostly sermonized.

I enjoy having my subjects
All pertaining to God’s Word...
And I sometimes stand in utter awe
At the things my spirit’s heard!

The weight of words amazes me
When the anointing flow’s intense!
When I can feel the Holy Ghost!
When His message claims each sense!

I want to sometimes leap with joy!
I just want to sing and shout!
And I pray I’ll always feel this way
Until my light goes out.

I'll always light and hold my candle
Even in the darkest night...
Seize every opportunity
To bring someone into God's Light.

Someday my presence in this world
May only be in poetry.
I can only hope each word reflects
On the Light He placed in me.

John 8:12 (KJV)
"Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying,
I am the light of the world: he that followeth
me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have
the light of life."




Psalms 119:105 -
Thy word [is] a lamp unto my feet,
and a light unto my path.

2 Corinthians 4:6 –
For God, who commanded the light to shine
out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to [give]
the light of the knowledge of the glory of God
in the face of Jesus Christ.

Mathew 5:14-16
"You are the light of the world. A town built
on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people
light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead
they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone
in the house. In the same way, let your light
shine before others, that they may see your good deeds
and glorify your Father in heaven.
