 Hi guys,  I know I haven’t been very active here, but there’s a good reason. I’m in transition to a new to me logging site. Sense the domain hooked to this site does not run out for some months you will on occasion see a post here. To check out my new blog go to my author’s site link below.

A Villanelle Poem for Thought




What God Says


My past in this day does not sway
To where my being currently resides
As I believe God, not what others say

For He has placed my past at bay
Giving me a future that He provides
Which my past in this day does not sway

And to my salvation Jesus did pay
Granting me grace as my soul He guides
I'm believing God, not what others say

This new birth, the same for others I pray
For the Lord has greatly worked on my insides
As my past in this day does not sway

To the new me, others need not dismay
I'm in this to stay as my soul decides
In believing God, not what others say

Believe it's me now, to this I relay
For in my soul His spirit abides
As my past in this day does not sway
I believe God, not what others may say

Thoughts: People, in particular relatives and/or friends, want to judge one so very much; especially when one turns their life over to God and decides to be the Christian God always meant for one to be. Some have a tendency to look at one's past or past demeanor and say "no way" when God says, Yes way! Being born again means one becomes a new creature and one's past and old way of being is forgiven and forgotten. "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things become new" (2 Corinthians 5:17. NKJV). It so sad that people want to hold one's past over one and not believe one can change; especially when it comes to change in becoming a spirit filled Christian. When one faces this judgment from others, know that just as God uses people to get His word out, the devil also uses people to try and diminish the work that God is doing in one. And, many times this use and or trickery can come from the most unexpected familiars (family and friends); especially those that want to keep bringing your past up. When one does become a born again Christian, many times, to others it may appear one has become a "Bible Thumping Christian" that some may see as one being outrageously religious. Well, in the first place I don't claim to be religious; I don't belong to a religion, I belong to Jesus Christ. Secondly, I know I have the Holy Spirit within my being and this I will not ignore. And I'm not ashamed to say, "I'm a Christian". If one wants to take that as being a Bible Thumping Christian, then so be it. Do I still have flaws, yes I do, I never claimed that I don't. But, I refuse to back down from what I know and what God has done for me. If that means appearing as being too religious to others and they want to say "no way, I know your past". Well, I say to them, "God also knew my past and has forgiven it and forgotten it and this is something I will always be grateful for and will never back down from this gracious gift". I don't care what anyone says about me! What matters to me is what God says!!

Happy Valentine, Love of my heart!

  “For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God” (Ephesians 3:14-19.

Holy Spirit- Acrostic Poem

"But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him." (1John 2:27. NKJV) "Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." (Romans 15:13. NKJV). "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you." (John 14:26. NKJV). "The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God," (Romans 8:16. NKJV). "By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit." (1 John 4:13. NKJV). "For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and have all b

Two poems preview for "Growing Strong in The Lord - part one"

  Here two more preview poems from my Growing Strong in The Lord Collection. These are from where I left off in my Part One previews. I will be mostly posting preview poems, as promised, from my published books. Rarely will you see a new poem here on this site. These two poems from my Growing Strong in The Lord- Part One, "I Am Sowed By God's Words" , came out of knowing God was with me during an impact with my car and a full grown and huge doe deer. I listed these two poems just days apart, as I still felt the grace God delivered me that fateful day; reminding me of His grace and presence throughout my life.  It's Not Luck, But Grace ⭐ When one is thrown a curve ball Like something unexpected takes place That can bring an unforeseen pitfall One holds tight and does brace As one calls on the Lord above all He then sees you through this place In the aftermath you then recall The Lord got you through, you embrace For He can, no matter how big or small And then you rea
