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 Truth

 
Some things I take too personal...
 It's part of my personality.
When someone hurts someone I love
Something seems to break in me.
 
Now I'm not saying that it's right...
Nor do I want to make excuses...
For the words that want to hurt right back
Or the anger some produces.
 
Yes, I've often turned the other cheek...
Just to have that one slapped, too!
And I've read the seventy times seven times
You've commanded us to do.
 
But I don't harbor un-forgiveness...
I know my heart can show You that.
But, Lord, I'm simply tired of being
Walked all over like a matt!
 
I just know You don't expect a child
Of Yours to be mistreated...
To overlook each hurtful wrong
Only to have them all repeated!
 
Yes, I've sought reconciliation
I've extended the request
It was ignored and me and mine
Were thrown out of the family nest.
 
I don't know why some must choose sides
But there's been so much confusion...
He said...she said... and the truth's been twisted
Into anyone's conclusion.
 
But You know the Truth...You ARE the Truth
And I just extend one plea...
When I stand before Your Judgment Seat
Let The Truth speak out for me!

Proverbs 14:25

"Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me."
John 14:6
 
But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light,
 so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done
has been done in the sight of God

 For there is nothing hidden that will not become manifest,
 neither anything carefully concealed that will never become
 known and never come into the open.
Luke 8:17
