Looking for Love Jesus Walking with Man
  • Grading on the Curve

    I’ve been told, I deserve so much,
    for the work I've done, for the lives I touch.

    I would like to say, my dear friend,
    what I deserve, is a bitter end!

    I have hated, I have snapped,
    people I love, I have slapped.

    I have lied, I’ve also cheated,
    believe it not, I have mistreated.

    I have envied, I have stolen,
    and many promises, I have broken.

    I’ve been selfish, and I’ve been greedy,
    too many times, I have been a bit sneaky!

    I’ve wrongfully punished; and wrongfully accused,
    plus for my own gain, I have spitefully used!

    I've been so angry, as a sailor I've cursed,
    to be brutally honest, I have done much worse!

    I’ve been encumbered, I’ve been a drunk
    oh yes, my life was so full of junk!

    Even though I knew that it was wrong,
    all these things, I did to belong!

    If you just met me, you’re probably in shock,
    but in a sinful nature, yes, I sure did walk!

    Then I met Jesus, I heard his good news,
    and how for my sins, he was bruised!

    how from the beginning, his love ran deep,
    and for my own heart he did weep

    For every wrong that I ever did,
    he shed his blood, my sins he hid!

    Now, I'm FREE; ACCEPTED; and thoroughly WASHED,
    and that mean ole’ devil, is surly squashed!

    Now he can’t touch me with a 10 foot pole,
    for it is written, on God’s holy scroll!

    God says, I’m FAVORED and TRULY BLESSED,
    Because faith in Jesus, I CONFESSED!

    In my spirit, I have been CHANGED.
    And in his RIGHTEOUSNESS, I'm REARRANGED!

    Now, this might sound too good to be true,
    But that’s the GOSPEL, for me and you!

    You still say, we get what we deserve,
    Well, I thank you JESUS, for grading on the curve!

God, It’s Me Calling

Bible 9

Speaking God’s Word

It’s what’s under the ground that creates what’s above the ground.  It’s what’s invisisble that creates what’s visible.  To change fruits (results) I must first change the roots.  If I want to change the visible, I must change the invisible.   T. Eker March is fast approaching and with it the “Spring” season and those pesky winds.  … Continue reading

FEAR NOT

“FEAR NOT.”  These words resonated with me as I read them in my Bible and find myself wondering how to deal with a couple of tough challenges which have almost proven insurmountable.   I am sure some of you are dealing with situations in your personal lives that have you feeling anxious, worried, and afraid.  Notice how in the brevity of those two words,  God uses … Continue reading

Blessings Come in Strange Packages

I was recently sifting through several small storage boxes of paper notes and photos which brought back a multitude of memories.  On a piece of paper I had saved was printed a short story that affected me then and still impresses me now and hopefully will strike a chord with you, too. One of the things the Lord has taught me is … Continue reading

Holy Quietude: Our appointment with God

Being “still and quiet” is a rare commodity these days.  My world is bustling with life just as much as yours.  With family commitments, business, friends, and living in a world that doesn’t stop talking , at times, it feels like I’m on a not so “merry go-round” and I want off.  Have you ever felt that … Continue reading

Have You Prayed With Your Mom Today?

The Lord was reminding me once again, of the promise I had made.  I knew it was something I not only needed to do but something I wanted to do.   However, I thought, how do I approach Mom?  How would she react, and what would she say? I pondered those questions repeatedly over a period … Continue reading

Praying for Boston

In light of the tragedy that occurred in Boston on Monday, April 15th, 2013 the Lord compelled me to write words of encouragement.  I’m sure many of you have prayed and are continuing to pray for the families whose lives have been adversely affected by this devastating attack.                                                                                 In our days of trouble which occur unexpectedly, the Lord … Continue reading

The Cross– Why?

The simple answer is “LOVE.”   As it is written in the Book of Romans: But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”  Romans 5:8 (NIV) The cross is absolutely the greatest love story of a God for His people.  God’s love for us was … Continue reading

Forgiven to Forgive

This month we will celebrate the Easter Holiday.   While dwelling on the crucifixion, as a mother I cannot begin to imagine what Mary was feeling and how she dealt with the reality of watching her son  brutalized, struggling to drag the cross to its destination knowing how Jesus’ life was about to end.  He was … Continue reading
