Lord produce, more and more Fruit.Help me to show the world proof.
The world can fade away,
I won’t miss it anyway.
Stay or go.
I serve God.
Whether on this earth.
Or up in Heaven.
Is my mission.
Satan wants to cause division.
Block your view, yep blur our vision.
Get out of the way.
No matter how hard you strain.
God’s got me, you can’t cause me pain.
God’s at the core,
He is my essence.
The Holy Spirit
Is God’s presence.
A Gift given, by
The Father and The Son.
This Gift was given in unison.
The agreement was made.
To Save us They made.
God’s Holy Spirit within us.
This was the only way.
Through Jesus Christ.
And all of God’s Might.
Jesus fought the fight.
Yet the battle was ours (sin).
God won the war.
For His creation whom He adores.
Now Satan has no control.
Lord produce, more and more Fruit.
Help me to show the world proof.
Proof of Your Love and tremendous Strength.
Proof of Your Forgiveness and Amazing Grace
God has come to Save us all
He chooses not to go.
Let me loose
watch me roar.
Watching me struggle.
Refusing to cuddle.
Squeeze me maybe.
Choke me till I’m unable.
Unable to breathe or see or even bleed.
I’m all used up, there’s nothing left in me.
Bleed me dry, I can’t even cry.
Because there’s nothing left inside.
Hollow and alone,
feel it deep in my bones.
But God has not left me.
He won’t forget me, I know.
Cuddle me close.
God loves me the most.
Get away world,
No room for you here.
God has Spoke,
and you are broke.
Broken and bruised
This is no joke.
God’s Spirit within me.
Rising higher and higher.
Rising above, all the muck and mire.
With God by my side, now I can roar.
Because God has come to Save us all.
The Book of Ecclesiastes relates to every one of us.
We all fall short of the glory of God.
The Book of Ecclesiastes is not running from God, but passionately searching for answers, from God.
Solomon used his wisdom to test God’s limits.
Which in and of itself isn’t wise,
For me anyway, this is very relatable.
Having the wisdom to know better yet
not always using my best judgement.
The more a child knows,
the more inquisitive they become.
God is all throughout Ecclesiastes,
whether it be Solomon recognizing
God’s might and power upon living, life and eternity.
Or his comparison to God in everything in creation.
Solomon definitely tested God,
but he declares
In the end,
God is God
he is not.
I have all the tools
and I know all the rules.
For both the Earth and God’s Holy Rule.
I learned how to use the weapons of Earth,
to combat the world and all of its hurt.
The tools of God
to encourage holy living,
I listened and learned then
I came out swinging.
Yet still confused, this is an issue.
Go back and listen closer,
start at the beginning.
God’s Words are True
and available to you.
Soak it up, every bit,
All the way until the end.
Jesus has become our friend.
A confidant and Loving ear.
Jesus listens to my fears.
Covers them all,
now I can stand tall.
Confident and strong, as long as God’s got my arm.
Not just my arm Lord, my mind, body, and soul.
Every inch of me, cries
“Lord, hold me secure.”
by The Lord.
This is what I know for sure.
Figuring it out, hearing better now.
Lord You are, my holy vow.
Not a nun but living life.
To make God proud, now that is RIGHT.
He Chase’s Shadows of Jesus
He chases shadows of Jesus.
In circles he goes.
He feels the love and
Yes he knows
Who Jesus is,
since he was a kid.
Be kind to all should be the rule.
Yet for some reason,
he treats me cruel.
Holy Spirit please guide him.
Please give him asylum.
Protect his heart.
I know he’s smart.
I know he had
A rocky start.
Let the past be the past.
No more shadows to chase.
Grab hold of the Lord.
Give Him a full embrace.
Surrender it all
No time to stall.
Come on now
Get on the ball.
No chains to date.
It’s not too late.
For things to be great.
The Holy Trinity is Amazing
Thank You Lord that You consider me.
The thought of Your Magnificence is in and of itself Amazing and out of this world.
That GOD desires a relationship with us, with me, is Amazing.
We have fallen so far from God. Yet God pulls us close to Him and binds us to Himself through The indwelling of God’s own Holy Spirit. How truly Amazing is this!?
This is so far beyond human comprehension, that it takes the power of God’s Holy Spirit, to even slightly comprehend all of these Truths concerning The Holy Trinity.
Our Father. Our Abba. Our Creator. The One who formed all. The One who created all that there is. The One who has always been and will always be. The One who is always present everywhere. The ONE.
**Then we have The Son.
God’s Love poured out upon us in a Righteous and Amazing way. God’s Son, God’s flesh. Jesus Christ when He walked this earth was literally God clothed in flesh.
Yes, Jesus was born of flesh, but His whole being was filled with The Spirit of God. He may have had some fleshly character traits from Mary and Joseph but His entire Character, His Content was fully God. This is why no sin existed in Jesus. God’s Spirit filled every inch of His being.
We didn’t truly understand God’s written instructions, the law. So God had to physically show us, which He did through the birth, life, death, resurrection and Jesus’ Ascension into Heaven.
***This is where The Holy Spirit takes over.
Jesus left us God’s Holy Spirit, which His flesh once contained. When He was no longer flesh, only God’s Spirit remained. With no flesh to contain It, The Holy Spirit was poured out upon all of those who embrace Jesus as the payment for their sin. The complete and final payment.
This plan was enacted the day that Jesus Ascended into Heaven. This was God’s plan from the beginning of our fall, from the day we exited Eden. From the day that sin entered the earth and Satan was given permission to rule over the world. The world that we live upon but not in.
Grab ahold of God’s Holy Spirit with both hands. Hold on tightly and never let go. All of the lessons Jesus taught us throughout the time he was here on earth must be held near to our hearts and minds. God has given us all that we need to live on (but not in) this world.
Living in the world will get you stuck in this world.
Living on the world, you barely skim the surface. You get a couple of bumps and bruises, maybe a scratch or two from the world, but God will enable you through His teachings, Jesus and the indwelling of God’s Holy Spirit to keep moving forward.
We don’t get stuck.
God’s all the momentum the Christian Life needs to be prosperous. God knows what you need, God’s Kingdom comes first though. So when I say needs, I mean needs, not wants. Some will try to convince you that if you are a Christian all is well. Well maybe in our soul, but not on this earth. We live in a turbulent and chaotic world. Confusion and deceit are in the air. Satan is the evil ruler of this world. But remember this world isn’t meant to last forever, God’s Kingdom will though.
This world is rotting and decaying, one day it won’t exist. So don’t settle in here. We have to live on the earth but not in it. Don’t be of the world, just live on it. Remember that God’s first priority is building His Kingdom, not your comfort or wants.
Satan is fine with filling some wants and making you so comfortable that you really settle in. But Satan has his own agenda, and you’re just getting caught in the crossfire. He is hatred, lies, deceit, selfishness, chaos, impatience, doubt, fear, anxiety, panic, confusion and all things like this. Satan is against God.
God is Love. Satan is Hate.
God is GOOD. Satan is evil.
If God’s priority is building His Kingdom, then this should be our priority, as well.
Jesus’ “plea” or prayer to our Heavenly Father for us. This is so beautiful.
“My plea is not for the world but for those you have given me because they belong to you. And all of them, since they are mine, belong to you; and you have given them back to me with everything else of yours, and so they are my glory! Now I am leaving the world, and leaving them behind, and coming to you. Holy Father, keep them in your own care—all those you have given me—so that they will be united just as we are, with none missing. During my time here I have kept safe within your family all of these you gave me. I guarded them so that not one perished, except the son of hell, as the Scriptures foretold. “And now I am coming to you. I have told them many things while I was with them so that they would be filled with my joy. I have given them your commands. And the world hates them because they don’t fit in with it, just as I don’t. I’m not asking you to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from Satan’s power. They are not part of this world any more than I am. Make them pure and holy through teaching them your words of truth. As you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world, and I consecrate myself to meet their need for growth in truth and holiness. “I am not praying for these alone but also for the future believers who will come to me because of the testimony of these. My prayer for all of them is that they will be of one heart and mind, just as you and I are, Father—that just as you are in me and I am in you, so they will be in us, and the world will believe you sent me. “I have given them the glory you gave me—the glorious unity of being one, as we are—I in them and you in me, all being perfected into one—so that the world will know you sent me and will understand that you love them as much as you love me. – John 17:9-23
God You are my touch therapy.
My thoughts are consumed by You.
When the Light wakes me,
Who’s the first person
that pops into my thoughts.
You, My Lord,
my Savior and King.
Touch me all over.
Please don’t miss a spot.
If You’re not the One holding me.
Then no one can.
My thoughts and heart
Are for you alone.
For you are the One
whom I want to hold.
Now I know things are right.
So hold me tight.
Your Will is for real.
Satan just wants to steal.
Lie and cheat, leading you to defeat.
or any other day.
you can’t stay!
I’ve entertained you long enough.
Thought I was a slave,
Ya, called your bluff.
God’s the One, I love so much.
Can’t get enough of His touch.
Distractions, can’t have me.
No Satan, you can’t catch me.
Try as you may.
God’s got this day.
And all the days to follow.
I know you will always try.
But this will just make you wallow.
No way around,
with my head to the ground.
Humbled and enslaved to
God, who conquered the grave.
Now I live free.
Free from Satan
and his lies.
Because I believed them,
They had me tied up,
thinking I would die.
Just needed to decipher that lie.
Bring it to my Father.
Let Him put it to the test.
God has put that one to rest.
All lies exposed, by the Light.
is what gives me insight.
So thank You Lord.
Satan shut the door.
Your lies aren’t believed any more.
God help me stay humbled, with my head held high.
So I’m not destroyed
by all the lies.
Throw away the crutches
Throw away the crutches.
I’ve used crutches my whole entire life. While The Lord has held me up completely on so many occasions in the past (through His Holy Spirit), I’ve used crutches most of my life to be able to stand upright on my own. I believe that the crutches were given to me by God as an aid but now they are being overused by me. I know that I had a real need for these crutches at some point in time and maybe I’ll need them in the future. But not now, not when God has brought me so far from where I once was. To a point of healing where maybe I could at least drop one of the crutches.
Stop living life with the same broken tools, the same coping mechanisms. Or your crutches may end up being a wheelchair, with even more dependency, then a scooter, now your own muscles are weak and can’t support the weight of living in this world. Now mind you, we shouldn’t be carrying the weight of the world, God, the Creator of this earth is the only One that can carry the weight of it. (He did this by sending Jesus, Jesus carried the weight of our sin on The Cross.) The earth became so heavy once sin entered it. God created earth beautiful and pure, “it was good”. But it has been corrupted by the world (free will) and it’s evil rulers (their influence on our free will).
Rather than aiding you at this point this equipment is actually crippling you. Weakening you because you aren’t even trying, even with the help of God.
Aid definition- noun
assistance; help; support a person,
device, etc, that helps or assists a teaching aid.
God does not take over, it’s not an artificial limb God gives us. But God offers us help, assistance and support, not a takeover or replacement. That would be great for our struggle but not great for building our characters. God cares most about the part of us that lives forever, our soul. Our content, our character. If we get a little beaten and bruised, (it’s ok), it’s all part of shaping us into the being that God created us to be. Jesus was beaten and bruised on our behalf, for our sin. He shared in our guilt, shame and all else that came into this world through our own disobedience. (Although he didn’t share sin with us. For Jesus was without sin, completely blameless.) Ever since the fall, all of us need aid from God to be able to live in this world. God gave us His Beautiful and Precious Holy Spirit, through His plan of Salvation through Jesus Christ. And let me tell you, this is more than enough to survive this world. Utilized properly this One piece of “Equipment” is all we need, God’s Holy Spirit. This Holy Spirit that equips us with the full armour of God. The same Holy Spirit produces the Fruits of The Spirit. God knows first hand what it’s like to live on this earth through the lense of Jesus Christ. The full armour of God is our defensive equipment, given through God’s Holy Spirit. The Fruits of God’s Holy Spirit are our offensive equipment, given through God’s Holy Spirit.
God came down and dwelt among men, how amazing is that!?!
Jesus our Intercessor.
Jesus our Mediator.
Jesus our Brother!?!
In addition to that, when Jesus left this world, God poured out upon us, The Gift of His own Holy Spirit.
Jesus walked this earth and lived on the earth, to show us the way to heaven. Following in Jesus’ footsteps is the only way to God. All other ways will lead us to a locked door that only Jesus has the key to. Jesus is the only One who can reconcile us with God. Jesus Christ is the only way to eternal life with our Creator, God. I’m constantly blown away by the ways of The Lord.
Your ways are so much Higher.
Thank You Lord for Your constant care, concern and aid.
Help me to live my life utilizing all that Your Holy Spirit can bring to my life.
Shape and mold me into the being You created me to be.
Your constant Love and Support are the only aids I need and these come from Your Holy Spirit, Lord.
I must confess I will need Your Holy Spirit to survive this world, all the way up until the day I have the privilege to be reunited with You, my Creator.
Then I will be praising You day and night Lord.
Lightweight and free, the weight of the world is finally gone.
Sin will finally be completely abolished in my life.
I can spend eternity with You Lord.
No more wrestling to be Good, I get to finally REST and just Be Good just as my Heavenly Father is GOOD.
Holy Spirit speak louder than the crowds.
Don’t know how.
Turned into a coward.
Fortune and fame
Has left you lame.
Left him beaten and broken
Argued with God, found out when it’s over.
All that counts is God and His purpose.
The fool runs after the world,
Yet keeps repeating the same mistakes.
Defaming and slaying the hearts of God’s people.
Give us protection under Your Steeple.
Protect us always, with Your countenance.
Direct our path, lead us away from Your wrath.
You are Good, I know this as fact.
In my heart, is where we store IT.
Precious and Strong.
It’s God’s Holy Spirit.
Let none drown IT out.
No matter how loud.
Holy Spirit speak loud.
Louder than the crowds.
Your Voice is all I want to hear.
So please Lord make it clear.
For it’s You whom communicates
Through Your Holy Spirit.
