ALL LIVES MATTER
ACRES OF DIAMONDS
THE MUSIC OF LIFE
HOPE AND FAITH
CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST JESUS
THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE
AIN'T NO ROCK
PROTECTING OUR BLINDSIDE
HE CHOOSE ME
SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD
SETTLED OUT OF COURT
BASKET OF EGGS
The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY
IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART
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

Purpose Of Life
"What is my purpose?" is often the question
That tends to bombard every mind
"Why was I born? And do I really matter?"
But we are all really hoping to find
That our time here on earth is of value...
That our lives are significantly spent.
There is satisfaction in some things we do
But life is more than just an event.
People, positions, will not fill the void...
Fame and fortune always leaves one cold...
But life does have a purpose and that purpose is
The presence of God in one's soul!
Yes, our one purpose in life is a person...
And that person is Jesus the Lord.
He, alone, is our reason for living
He, alone, is life's greatest reward.
Somebody once asked Him the question.
"What is it that matters the most?"
His answer ...Matthew 22:37...
Should be shouted from mountain to coast!
The Bible does give us examples...
King David admitted his wrong.
But the Pharisees and all the teachers of law
Rejected God's Way for their own.
They insisted on their rules, their standards,
Believed in their own righteousness.
King David, although sinful and flawed,
Believed that God's Way was the best.
God does not regard some great works
Except the works be performed in great love.
So, remember, that all of the small things
Are noticed from Heaven above.
So, if you are searching for purpose
There's no need to tread over this sod.
Your purpose in life is right here and right now...
Your purpose is living for God.

~~Dedicated to Annette~~
In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined
according to the purpose of him who works all things according
to the counsel of his will,
This was according to the eternal purpose that he has realized
in Christ Jesus our Lord
But the Pharisees and the lawyers rejected God's purpose
for themselves, not having been baptized by John.
For when David had served God's purpose in his own generation,
he fell asleep. His body was buried with his fathers and saw decay.
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart
and with all your soul and with all your mind.
