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

When Sickness Pays A Visit


When sickness pays a visit...
At times fear filters in.
We often question why
And we wonder about sin

Have we offended God?
Our faith not been as strong?
The enemy will try
To convince us we've done wrong.

It's his job to disillude...
To sow the seeds of doubt...
But we won't reap the consequence
If we throw the culprit out.

Remember he's trespassing...
He has no right or claim...
And we can run him off
By using our Redeemer's Name!

If he's request permission...
Then we've got to understand
That this is still a testing ground....
Yet God's still in command.

In any case, our trust
Can never be unspoken...
Just speak in faith believing
God will fix whatever's broken.

Do our words possess power?
O, they do in Jesus' Name!!!
Every demon trembles...
The implications are insane!

Life and death are words we speak...
Our lives do have a purpose.
The Word tells us which one to choose
But the choice still makes us nervous.

Sometimes we feel we want to go
To join the ones we love...
And we wonder if this illness will
Finally take us up above.

But something deep within us
Seems to tell us to hang on.
That this, too, is going to pass...
Tomorrow brings a brand new dawn!

So when sickness pays a visit
As it will sometimes do...
 We remember who the Healer is
And trust Him to see us through.

~~Dedicated to Sandy~~


Proverbs 18:21
"Death and Life are in the power of the tongue......"

Proverbs 15:4
The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.

Isaiah 53:5
 But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

1 Peter 3:10

For, "Whoever would love life and see good days must
keep his tongue from evil and his lips from deceitful speech.

Luke 10:19
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over al
l the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you
