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

Growing In The Spirit

 
   We are growing in the Spirit
When we submit to sacrifice
Our will to do just as we please
To do the will of Christ.

When the Devil says "I dare you
To keep away from sin."...
When he laughs and we're uncertain
That we won't mess up again.
 
Yet when we bury self-reliance
And have chosen to surrender...
When we're no longer an observer
But becoming a contender.
 
When we choose to run the race to win...
When it's no longer just a game.
When we realize the guts it takes
To run in our Savior's Name.
 
When we can ignore the whispering...
When we turn the other cheek.
When we understand the tears we shed
Is because the flesh is weak.
 
When we realize the strength we need
Can be only found in Him.
When in order to get past our doubts
We have got to sink or swim.
 
When we're praying for our enemies
As the Good Book tells us to...
When forgiving them becomes a must
Even though it's hard to do.
 
When we are running toward the Devil
Instead of trying hard to flee...
When we say without an ounce of fear, 
"The Greater One's in me!"
 
When our mornings all begin with praise
And each night ends with a prayer...
Then, we are growing in the Spirit
And we'll take the devil's dare!!!!

Psalm 143:10
Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground

 

2 Peter 3:18
Teach me to do your will, for you are my God!
but grow in the grace and knowledge of
 our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ To Him
 be the glory, both now and to the day
 of eternity. Amen.
 
Ephesians 4:15
 but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up
 in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ
