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

As Is


Ever bought and paid for something
That was being sold "as is"?
The Lord did when He purchased us...
Claimed each damaged piece as His.

Blinded by the world that wooed us...
We wore a yoke of wasted years...
But He broke our chains and freed us...
In spite of all our doubts and fears.

For some of us were never certain
That God really did exist...
But He does not give up on anyone
And unbelievers top His list!

Some of us were just as certain
That our souls were just too stained...
That our sins were so atrocious...
Forgiveness could not be attained.

But God excells in the extreme...
Changes cold and calloused hearts.
His Spirit will strive extra hard
And praying plays a major part.

If no one on earth will pray for us,
Our precious Savior always will.
He's High Priest, our intercessor...
This role our Lord loves to fulfill.

The love that made Him bleed for us
Is a love that will not fade.
We owed a debt we could not pay
But, praise the Lord, that debt He paid!

As is...we all need to be fixed...
But that is our God's specialty.
From here until the great unknown
He'll work on you and work on me.

~~Dedicated to Cubby~~

Psalm 147:3
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds


Lamentations 3:22
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies
never come to an end;


1 John 4:16
So we have come to know and to believe the love
that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides
in love abides in God, and God abides in him.

1 Timothy 2:5
For there is one God, and one mediator between
God and men, the man Christ Jesus;



