Unless…..

Unless it looks like this, I don’t need it
Unless it brings you glory Jesus, I wont entertain it
Unless we pray together, its not worth it
Unless it is ordained by Jesus, I wont try to contain it
Unless he loves You more than me, its not true love
Unless he kneels at your feet, he need not go down on bended knee
Unless it is built on faith, it cannot not stand
Unless he is a man of Christ, I cannot become his wife
Unless it looks like Christ, it is not right
So until it does, I will wait….until it looks like this

This world, this world…..

 

return_of_jesus_by_al_nahas-d8v4zgc

 

This world, this world
has many afraid
hearing about car bombings, terrorist attacks and the last days

This world, this world
is moving so fast
technology is thriving while the Gospel seems to be dying

This world, this world
death, disease, and fear
is all these ears seem to hear

This world, this world
inching from the Gospel
and accepting good for evil

This world , this world
is in desperate need to Jesus
yet we would rather accept the things that please us

This world, this world
will one day fade away
and in its place will stand a new world
populated by those who chose to walk by faith

This world, this world
has not long before Christ’ return
to bring all to their knees in reverence of its returned King

Things my Father did….

Things my father did…
play constantly within my head

He always reminded me to walk by faith and not by sight
to choose the things of Jesus over the things of this life

He talked about hope, when thing looked hopeless
and choose to walk in the peace of Jesus instead of restlessness

He exemplified the characteristics of Christ
demonstrating to me how I should strive to live my life

He put his faith in things eternal rather than this world
because he knew this world was not our home

He showed me the power found on bended knee
and prayed over my head without cease

These are the things my father did and continue to do for me
demonstrating the love of the Heavenly father through his love for me

In These Last Days……..

Worship Through The Worry

grace1

God, what am I to do in these last days
when my head and my heart tell me to be afraid
how am I to stand when my legs continually shake
and what am I to hold onto when I am persecuted for my faith
how am I to pray when the uncertainty of tomorrow makes me so very afraid

This is what I asked God today and the Lords response to me……
I am COVERED BY HIS GRACE!

A grace which will stand to the end of time
a grace I did not purchase
yet through faith is now mine
a grace that erases any fear or doubt
a grace, which now more than ever, need be lived out

So in these last days
fear may find some small place in the remnants of my brain
yet God will speak hope, peace, and faith in its place
allowing me…

Preachers of America…….I dare you to Preach

preaching

Preachers of America…..I dare you to PREACH! The American Church is dying.  It is dying due to a lack of Godly preaching, failure to speak on conviction of sin, and a blatant disregard for teaching from the inherent and infallible word of Jesus Christ. Worst yet, its preachers are watching it die slowly and painfully full well knowing it is dying and instead of resuscitating it with the true gospel of Christ, they are feeding it morsels of half-truths and portions of scriptures. Many preachers will stand on their pulpits, claiming to preach the truth, but deny biblical truths in their message to actually be able to preach the truth. Some preachers claim God  wants us to “live our best life now”.  False!  Our life here on earth is not living, we are merely passing through and our living does not begin until we are reunited with our Heavenly Father in heaven. Others will stand and preach only the “feel good gospel“,which consist of health, wealth, joyful living, and a wide open path to heaven for those who lived a “good life“.  Jesus himself, preached trials and tribulations would occur in this life, and joy is found only in Jesus regardless of circumstances, and the way to heaven is narrow and few will enter by it.  Preachers, America desperately needs you to stand bold, preach truth in love, stop trying to be politically correct, and preach to this dead and dying nation the wages of sin is death but in repentance and surrendering to Christ Jesus we escape death by grace. Preachers, I dare to be bold.  Preachers I dare you to risk losing members of your church because you are preaching the truth.  Preachers I dare you to speak on the sins and the atrocities of our day and age. Preachers, I dare you to PREACH!

I am a Christian……….

I am a Christian…and that’s it, I am a Christian.
I am eternally flawed, filthy, boastful, lustful, prideful, and MOST of all sinful.
I am a Christian who understands my sin is no greater than anyone else’s and I, as well as everyone else, is in desperate need of a Savior who’s name is Jesus Christ.
I am a Christian who does not always agree nor support many of the new issues facing our country, but who tries to show great love and respect to every person God places within my path; thus, hopefully demonstrating the true nature of Christ and Christianity.
I am a Christian and I believe a day will come where God will rip a hole in the sky returning for, not those who are perfect or who lived a “good” life, but for those who have been covered and washed by the blood of the Lamb.
I am a Christian…and that’s just who I am.

Above All

If I am to be alone
and live this life on my own
Lord help me to desire You above all
help me when I am feeling lonely
to seek comfort and love from You only
to not look outward for acceptance of my worth
but to look upward and find beauty in my all even within my flaws
to desire for You to love me
and in return I can speak of Your glory
To rest in Your truths
to know that You are walking this life with me in my soul
and all I need is You to make me whole
I am not alone if I have Jesus
Hold me close, love me deeply and give me You

This is my prayer….

prayer_1-300x225

Help me Lord
to be who You are calling me to be
to see the things You have for me to see
to desire Your ways above my own
to be reminded of Your presence when I am feeling alone
to never walk by sight yet by faith
to be humble enough to accept Your grace
to need You more than I need my next breath
to allow Your hands access to the heart that beats within my chest
to be a lover of Your word and Your ways
to live to bring You glory all of my days

Help me Lord
to pray as David prayed
and to be a servant to Your works
until You return on that glorious day
