My God, My Everything!

My God, my Friend.
I love You to the end,
And then
I love You eternally,
Forevermore.
Thank You for loving me
The same…
And more than
I could ever imagine.
Thank You for spending
Quality time with me.
Please forgive me
Of when I cheat You
Of such moments to treasure.
You are my Soulmate!
My Bridegroom.
My Lord.
My Savior.
I love You!

LORD

Lord,

help me to survive.

I want to do it all.

I’m so glad to be alive.

Thank you for the breath,

the strength, the love, and the heart.

I want to make the choice

that will never drive us apart.

Influence

Influence is something we all possess,
whether we believe it or not,
want it or not,
or care or not.
Our actions are witnessed by others
at all times.
They are emulated openly and secretly.
Others pay attention
even when we don’t.
That influence is our God given gift.
We are to use it to honor God,
to reach the lost,
to encourage the broken hearted,
to lead the sheep back home.
We need so desperately
to nurture and discipline our influence,
as it can so easily destroy.
The influence we share
will be the influence others pass on.
Lord, may your Holy Spirit
help us to be and share
the influence You ask of us.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Dominion is His

Great and strong is the LORD
Mighty and powerful is He.
His enemies flee His wrath.
His prodigal children plea.
His strength displays His character.
His character conveys His demand.
His holiness validates
His authority to command.
His vengeance is His pleasure.
His pleasure is to forgive.
Condemnation is His to sentence.
Clemency is His to give.
Pardon is His escape.
Redemption His restoration.
Salvation is His to offer
Because of His resurrection.

Puzzled by Life

Lord, today a moment happened
that made me feel like
someone had taken the pieces
of the puzzle of my life
and dumped them all over the place.
I thought the borders were secure,
and even a few areas complete.
Yet it all felt like my border
was being threatened
and my foundation scattered.
What I thought started the whole thing
became my obsession to repair any damage.
Here I thought I understood
at least where it all began.
But I must deliver the message
entrusted to me,
regardless of the validity of the source.
Lord, You are the one who
makes sense of it all.
I place all the pieces in Your hand.

Great and Mighty

Great and mighty is the Lord our God.
Worthy and honorable is the great JAH.
Our tongues and voices should never cease
to praise the God of eternal peace.
He created our bodies and souls.
He created the world which He controls.
He gives us mercy and shares grace.
He sent His only Son to save.
He resurrected His precious Son
to send to us the Holy One.
The Holy Ghost comforts us,
all because of the blood of Jesus.
How great God is to share so much
and all because of perfect love.
Sing ye people, sing of earth!
Sing of God and His mighty worth!
