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

Lord, He Needs To Be Broken

 
He is like a wild stallion
Lord, I'll never keep him fenced in!
He rares up and bucks me
When I try to steer him from sin.
 
He likes wide open spaces...
To frolic with fillies each night.
Lord, he's young and unbroken,
I can't seem to train this one right.
 
As a youngster he did learn
Your ways and he did know Your Word...
But his mind's out to pasture
 He's forgotten each truth that he's heard.
 
He's not quite there yet but
 Determined to live life his way...
Lord, I've tried but can't stop him!
O, what can a mom do but pray?!
 
  Please round him up,  rope him,
 Lord, move him into Your corral.
You're the one who designed him
And he needs You as his saddle pal.
 
I've tried running beside him
But a parent cannot be a friend.
As the Good Book has taught us
All young colts must be disciplined.
  
O, Lord break him and make him
Into all You've created him for...
 While I stress over his wild streak
 I know You see into his core.
 
I know that childhood commitment
Is still buried somewhere deep within.
Prevent that bad bull who stalks him
From destroying his future with sin.
 
Lord, I'm expecting to see him
In that final roundup in the sky!
 Lord, I do have your promise...
 It's branded in The Book I live by.

~~ Dedicated to Pastor Andy,
And to my sons, Tommy and Terry~~

 
Proverbs 29:15
The rod and reproof give wisdom; But a child left to himself
 causeth shame to his mother.

 
Proverbs 6:20
My son, keep the commandment of thy father
, And forsake
 not the law of thy mother:
 
Proverbs 22:6
Train up a child in the way he should go, And even when
 he is old he will not depart from it.
 
Proverbs 11:21
Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished:
 but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.
 
Isaiah49:25
But thus saith the Lord, Even the captives of the mighty
shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be
 delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee,
and I will save thy children.
