Let His Light In

DCIM100SPORT

God is willing to help you.

His help is written in His Word.

When you take His Word in your heart.

You will walk in one accord.

To know God is to love Him.

His ways are perfect and true.

Consider what He has to say,

In all you say and what you do.

He is interested in what you do.

He wants you to stay safe and well.

He will guide your steps to heaven,

And avoid the flames of hell.

The decisions that you make,

Should follow the example He gave.

His Spirit that lives within you,

Will help you to want to behave.

You will want to represent,

Your Father God up above,

Being and instrument of His peace,

Being an agent of His love.

Love your neighbor as yourself.

Help those who are in need.

His Word will light your path.

His truth will follow your deeds.

God is willing to help you.

His help is written in His Word.

When you take His Word in your heart.

You will walk in one accord

Psalms 119:130


127Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold. 128Therefore I esteem all thy
precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way. 129 Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them. 130The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple. 131I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy commandments. 132Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name. 133Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.

Decisions without God can be disastrous. His Words are truth and they will not fail. Truth is always truth. A lie will turn into another lie and to another lie. Satan is a liar and a thief and he comes to kill and to destroy. He only has one goal in mind and that is that you will suffer with him for eternity. He knows he can’t win, but he wants to make a statement to God about his power; the power of evil. Evil can be attractive and entice people to lose sight of God Almighty. Always consume God’s Word to guide and direct your path. Use His Holy Word to fight the wiles of the devil and his evil ways. The entrance of God’s Word into your soul will enlighten you and guide you in all you say and do.

Positive Words

oct2009 chincoteague 069
Let His Son shine through

 

Use positive words,

To direct your life.

Talk about good things.

Avoid talking of strife.

 

Do not claim your illness,

But claim health instead.

Let bygones be bygones.

Leave them with the dead.

 

Bury the negative thoughts,

But bring to life what is good.

Speak positive words over your life,

So that you can live like you should.

 

Utter the truth every day.

God’s words are positively great.

Claim what is good for your life.

You can claim your own fate.

 

Words are so important.

They can be your shield and sword.

God has good plans for you,

So use His Holy Word.

 

Stand on that Truth of God.

Be what He says you can be.

You are a child of the King,

With an inheritance in eternity.

 

Streets are made of gold,

And His presence shines like the sun.

Claim the Words of God as victory,

And let His will be done.

Jeremiah 1: 4-9

 

4 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

6 Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child.

7 But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.

8 Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD.

9 Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.

 

Proverbs 15:26

The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the LORD: but the words of the pure are pleasant words.

As a child first learns to speak, he or she practices unceasingly. They chatter on and on, until they get the words right so that it is understandable. They use words to communicate their needs and their emotions. We are the same with the Words of God. We must practice them until they come out right, so that we can use them effectively in our lives. Think about practicing the Word of God by reading the Word of God often enough that the words should be able to flow freely from your tongue. Words should be used for good and not for evil, so choose to think before you speak.

New Novels now available

I am so excited to announce that I have published my first Christian Romance Novels, that will be available in a few days on Amazon.com and on Createspace.com.  I have written poetry for many years and finally read my first book for pleasure when I was 69 years old. God planted seeds for me to try to write a book and it turned into a sequel, starting with A Call from Across the Sea, then Wild Boar Crossing and then The Muddy Jordan. I hope some of you will give a new author a try and hope that you enjoy the novels. I am just trying to answer what God is placing in my heart.

Led by His Spirit

14792

 

Life can be exciting,

If you let His Spirit lead the way.

Knowing that your headed to heaven,

A place we all long to stay.

God has a wonderful life planned,

For each of His children on earth.

Walk in confidence and awe,

As God offers you a re-birth.

 

Strongholds of the enemy,

Can be broken in the mind.

Lies can become your reality.

Satan can rule and bind.

He can take away the gifts,

That God has just for you.

You can destroy these strongholds.

The Holy Spirit will pull you through.

 

Be educated in His Word.

Be prepared to fight the battle each day.

The Word of God is powerful,

And Satan will not want to stay.

You can use the shield of faith.

You can wear the helmet of salvation.

You can overcome the evil in your mind.

You can use your imagination.

 

Use the name of Jesus.

He will be you battle cry.

You will find life more abundant,

And not have to question why.

Life can be exciting,

Let His Spirit lead the way.

Know that you are meant for heaven,

A place we were created to stay.

TRW 4-19-18

2 Corinthians 10:3-5

3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

 

Romans 12:2

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

 

John 16:7

Reprove is to convince you of or to convict you of your sin of not believing in Jesus and trusting in all that Jesus taught us. He is there to remind us of the teachings of Jesus. If you believe in what Jesus taught, then you will strive not to sin. All sin comes from not believing everything that Jesus taught us or ignoring what has been taught. He tried to simplify avoiding sin by saying to love God first and then to love your neighbor as yourself

 

We can use the Holy Spirit of God which lives in us to have a better life. We should read and know the Word of God so that when we are tempted to believe the lies of Satan, that we will instantly use the Holy Word to cast the lies of Satan aside. When we feel tormented or upset in life, we need to go into the battle prepared to fight. If we cannot remember anything else, tell Satan to, “Get out of my life, in Jesus Holy Name.” Remind the devil that, “This body and mind is a temple of the Holy Spirit, so I demand that you flee, in Jesus name.” Then relax and go about living your life. You will recognize that the situation has eased down and that you have been restored.

A Decision to Trust

2017 april from phone 149

 

Trusting God is a decision,

That each person has to make.

To trust in Him is hopeful,

And will never be a mistake.

 

The more you practice trust,

The stronger you will become.

Let go and let God take care of you,

And rest with each setting sun.

 

Do not regret yesterday.

You cannot change a thing.

Learn from the mistakes you make.

Go forward and be prepared to sing.

 

Trust God with your tomorrows.

Be satisfied with each new day.

You can enjoy life through the troubles,

Because it is not where you will stay.

 

Do not ruin another person’s day,

By telling them all that is wrong.

Sing praises to your God,

To help your soul become strong.

 

Trusting takes understanding.

Look all that He has done for you.

Wait patiently for the answer,

And know that His Word is true.

 

Be triumphant in the victory,

Which God is sending your way.

Give Him Your trust always,

And everything will be okay.

 

TRW 4-18-18

1 Peter 5:6-10

6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

 

Mark 11:22-25

22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.

23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

 

Trusting God takes practice and experience, just like anything else in life that you learn. God gives each man a measure of faith, but it is up to us to develop that faith and that trust. Every time we walk through trials and find out we are okay in the end, we deepen our faith that God will pull us through that difficulty in life. When we fear what might happen in certain circumstances, we are not resting in God’s ability to take care of us. We may not feel worthy of such love, but we can never be worthy of God’s love, but He loves us anyway. Trust in that love and let your worries dissolve.

Embrace Yourself Today

IMG_6879.JPG 

Embrace yourself today.

Love who God made you to be.

Show others the beauty in your soul,

Which they may not be able to see.

 

Love will show your mercy.

Patience will show your grace.

You are to be an example of Christ,

Not just a beautiful face.

 

Peace can reflect your Jesus.

You should be mad at no man.

You can be right without anger,

When you feel you need to take a stand.

 

Standing up for Jesus Christ,

Should not cause another person pain.

Be an open door to heaven,

And show them what there is to gain.

 

Be satisfied with who you are.

You are a child of the King.

His righteousness is in your head.

His praises you should sing.

 

You are not better than another,

But your feet are firmly on the ground,

Waiting to help another person,

To show them the peace that can be found.

 

Peace should be contagious.

It is God’s love freely given.

God’s grace is sufficient for all,

And has opened the  gates of heaven.

 

TRW 4-17-18

Isaiah 43:1-4

 

1 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called [thee] by thy name; thou [art] mine.

2 When thou passest through the waters, I [will be] with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

3 For I [am] the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt [for] thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.

4 Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life.

 

Romans 8:31

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

1 Corinthians 6:17-20

17But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. 18Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. 19What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

 

We have been made in the likeness of God and His Spirit can live in us. We are the most beautiful creation that God made for this earth. We were born to be in close communion with our Father. We are the “Apple of His Eye”. It is for these reasons that we can walk in confidence and show the inner beauty that is within us. We are living examples of our Creator. We must love ourselves to be able to pass that kind of love onto another person. If you do not approve of who you are then you should follow the Spirit that resides in you and you will shine. You can find His peace in you, but at times you need to remind yourself who you are in Christ, to be able to walk in confidence.  

Raising Up His Church

Raising Up His Church

jan 2018 picts 224

 

Jesus suffered the cross,

To give us life still today.

He bound our wounds,

To cover us in every way.

God wants His people healed,

To be with Him forevermore.

His promises are so great.

He has so much more in store.

 

The place He goes to prepare,

Is something beyond compare.

His kingdom is like no other,

That He chose with you to share.

God forgives our sins.

He will heal and bind.

He will take away the fear,

And ease our weary mind.

 

He will revive our hope.

He will open the way.

We can go to Him directly,

As we worship and as we pray.

He will raise us up.

He alone can save our souls.

His love will rain on us,

As He changes us and makes us grow.

 

We should praise Him today.

We should praise Him tomorrow.

We can be assured of His love,

As He takes away our sorrow.

God is raising up His church.

It is more visible today.

There is a troubling of the waters,

As God Himself prepares the way.

 

Look for His signs.

Accept the call for your life.

Feel the rain of His Holy Spirit.

As He washes away all strife.

See His purpose set before you.

Follow the path meant for you.

You will not face the battle alone.

He will help you follow through.

TRW 4-15-18

 

Hosea 6:1-3

1 Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.

2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.

3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.

 

When you stand on the Word of God, He will keep you from the snares of the devil. He will bind the wounds in life and make good come from the evil that was intended. He will pour out His grace upon us in our driest season. He will cause us to grow in wisdom and will make us stronger, the longer we walk with Him. He will raise us up in this life as well as raise us up after death to be with Him in eternity.

 

Know What You Know

phone pict april 2018 084

 

You should not be troubled,

If you know what you know.

Do you really believe in Jesus?

Then His peace in you should show.

 

You should be a walking example,

Of His love here on this earth.

You should be walking in kindness,

If you have realized your re-birth.

 

Your salvation gave you new life.

It allows you to look ahead.

You have fought a fight with Satan,

And you were not left for dead.

 

You are an over-comer.

There is nothing you can’t do,

When you know what you know,

His grace will pull you through.

 

You will come out victorious,

In the battles in your life.

You will walk in confidence,

As you walk through daily strife.

 

Troubles, you will have some,

But with His Spirit as your guide.

You can proclaim what you know,

Because you have nothing to hide.

 

Your King has you covered,

Because of Who you know.

You will share His love with others,

And you will reap what you sow.

 

TRW 4-15-18

1 Thessalonians 2:13

For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Sometimes in life, you feel like there are no concrete answers, but in reality, if you go to the scriptures, you will find the truth. The truth will set you free to enjoy things of this earth. Truth brings you peace, because truth is stable. Instability is what causes stress. If you see a strong Christian, walk in peace during troubled times, it is because they are not walking for their own purpose, but they are walking with God’s purpose in mind. It is so easy to seek those things of this earth and unfortunately, those things will pass away, but the things of God will not pass away. Stand firm on what you know and cling to some special verses in the Bible to bring you back to the reality of your purpose in life to be able  to overcome adversity and stress.

Help Me Lord

jan 2018 picts 220

 

Help me dear Lord,

Through another difficult day.

Send some peace and comfort,

While I believe and pray.

Standing in Your righteousness,

I believe there is good for me.

I believe Your timing is perfect,

So I will wait expectantly.

 

I will hang onto Your promises,

And smile as I look back.

With You there is fulfillment.

With You there is no lack.

Suddenly I am made aware,

Of God’s watchfulness and love,

Realizing I have been covered,

By God’s blessings and His love.

 

The chains that once bound me,

Will suddenly fall away.

I can walk in calm assurance,

With God’s presence every day.

Problems; I will have some,

But the Creator of the earth,

Will never leave or forsake me.

I am righteous through my re-birth.

 

Satan will try to defeat me,

But I have God’s favor from above.

I can walk in anticipation,

Of being covered by God’s love.

His love has washed me clean,

I am as pure as the driven snow.

I can walk in righteousness,

Because of Who I know.

TRW 4-13-18

Psalm 34:17-19

17 The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

 

Psalm5:11-12

11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

12 For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

 

2  Corinthians 4:6-9

6  For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;

 

The Bible gives us words of hope. Jesus is the Word. Jesus is our hope. He came to earth to tell us what we need to do to obtain eternity with Him in heaven, but also to tell us how we can walk in faith and not in fear here on earth. He tells us of the spiritual battle between Him and Satan and the trophy is our soul. We are a trophy in God’s eyes and He wants us to succeed. He gives us the tools to defeat Satan and to walk in peace on this earth, holding onto the many promises of God in the scriptures.
