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

To Be  Like Jesus

 
Do you compare yourself to someone else?
Someone you'd like to imitate?
They're more at ease within a crowd...
Small talk  is just a piece of cake.
 
They hold everyone's attention...
Folks seem to cling to every word.
O, the wish to be like William
Or like Beth, Billy, or Bird.
 
But, silly children that we are,
We've overlooked The Father's plan...
For He's made us all to be like Jesus
And not like any other man.
 
I  do believe that I'm supposed
 To let the Christ be Christ through me
 And if we're all made in God's image
  Isn't this how all should be?
 
Each of us has been created
To  show Christ Jesus to the world.
No one can show Him quite like we can...
By letting who we are unfurl.
 
 We might not sing like Sister Susie
Or teach or preach like Brother Paul.
 But with the gift of sharing Jesus
 Our God's graced us one and all.

It's up to us to hold that candle...
To let what Light we have be shown.
The smallest flame can be a magnet
To let the Precious Blood atone.
 
I write because I'm not a speaker...
So I'm sharing Jesus in my way.
It doesn't matter how we do it
But that we do it as we may.
 
Maybe you excel in cooking...
Invite some hungry soul to dine.
Your faith can be shared through the blessing...
A planted seed will grow in time.
 
Feel the need to be like others?
It's Satan's sly way to distract
You from being more like Jesus.
This, I promise you, is fact.
 
Why try to be like one  another?
That's not what we are called to do.
O, let's be unified but different...
I will be me and please be you.

Galatians 2:20
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer
I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life
I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God,
who loved me and gave himself for me.
 

Romans 8:28-29

And we know that for those who love God
all things work together for good, for those
who are called according to his purpose.
For those whom he foreknew he also
predestined to be conformed to the image
of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn
among many brothers.



John 14:12

“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me
will also do the works that I do; and greater works
than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.
 

Ephesians 2:10

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus
for good works, which God prepared beforehand,
that we should walk in them.
