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

The Life Changing Phrase

She begins to tell her story
With a teardrop in her eyes...
A tale of molestation
So atrocious it defies


Any doubt or any question
To make it register as odd,
But, in the middle of the story
She softly smiles the words "then God."


Never used to public speaking,
He slowly stutters to begin.
Yes, he is the perpetrator...
He stands guilty of the sin.


So ashamed of his wrong doing
He downplays any façade,
Yet in the middle of his story
He mumbles out the words "then God."


A dirt streaked yet sweet smiling face
Posing for the photograph...
The youngster has just recently
Learned what it means to laugh.

A childhood filled with poverty...
 Hungry roads much too well-trod...
But, in the middde of his story
The youngster blurts out but "then God!"

She seems to be so out of place
And just a little bit afraid.
She holds out both her arms to show
 Ugly marks the needles made.

Then, in the most vigorous of voices
Ever heard upon this sod,
Comes the remainder of her story
When she sings out the words "then God!"

Two old and very wrinkled hands
 Raised  high to praise the Lord.
A lifetime spent in intersession
 Finally reaps its just reward.

Seems her children, once such rebels,
Had discontinued to maraude.
When explaining their decisions,
She emphasises  "and then God!"

The evangelist grows troubled...
Seems his crowds are thinning out.
His revival has been sabotaged...
Satan's  dirty work, no doubt.

Would be converts swatting bugs...
Until he witnessed something odd...
A massive cloud of mosquito hawks!
Hallelujah....and then God!!!

Christ specializes in conversations...
An intro out of all the craze.
Each story changes its direction
With every sure life changing phrase!

So if you're standing in a hard place...
Uncertain of the path you've trod...
I promise He'll be there to guide you...
Then you can know your own "then God!"

~~Dedicated to Kathryn~~

"Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let
God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.
Then you will learn to know

God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect."
Romans 12:2 (NLT)

Acts 16:31
They said, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved,
you and your household."

Acts 17:30
"Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance,
God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent,

Romans 5:10
For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God
by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled,
shall we be saved by his life
