Poetic Pearls of Faith
On Thursday morning of this week, I awoke fairly early, I didn’t look at the clock, so not sure 0f the exact time, but it was early. I just lay there and begin to talk to the Holy Ghost and I asked Him what was going on in heaven today? I began to see a type of kaleidoscope show before me, the background was black, but each second a different type of flower would emerge and they just kept coming one right after the other. Saw this as my answer that beautiful, colorful and fragrant things are blooming in heaven. Heard that each day new life blooms and at the same time some blooms experience death. Some of these blooms get to experience another bloom , a new eternal one. Others do not.
I could also see the kaleidoscope of flowers as HFWL, of course we would be templating the heavenlies, because we are citizens of Heaven. We are all part of the same garden, I pictured the beautiful, full, garden featured in the movie, The Shack, yet we are each unique, we are different colors regarding skin and personalities, our fragrance is diverse, yet when all the different fragrances are unified, it makes for one beautiful, potent fragrance of the anointing of Jesus Christ.
Beautiful beloved I yearn for and see
How my likeness is all in your majesty.
Your love is so awesome
Your love is so grand
Man can't even comprehend.
You carry us through
You take us forth
We get to ride on your white horse.
Victory is ours- victory with glee
This I know by your history.
Come up you say, come fly with me
I'm who you are created to be.
We have an apostle, she is a sent vessel of the Lord Most High
She has an anointing to pierce the proud and lift up the shy.
We have Prophets anointed with GODs’ mercy and love
When we begin to slow, they give us a shove.
Our apostle is gentle, kind, patient, caring, and true
She’s led by the Holy Ghost showing us that we can be those things too.
Our prophets may sometimes be a little much to handle
But when they see darkness in us, they break out the candle.
We have the body of Christ to lift our spirit and to watch each others back
And when the enemy comes, we stand unified and give the devil no slack.
Here we have learned that we have a ministry for people for which we care
Jesus Christ gave that to us and it is ours to share.
We have a ministry, a place to fellowship, learn, and grow in the Lord
If you ever visit us, I promise you won’t ever find yourself bored.
We don’t come here to just warm the pews
We’re here to become disciples and to spread the good news.
We have accountability groups holding each others feet to the fire
And when we step out of line just watch out you might be called a liar.
We hold nothing back, we tell it like it is, and we love what we do
We’re Holding Forth the Word of Life
We have an apostle and she can be your apostle too. .
My Plans are good
"My plans are good" You whisper to me"
They deliver you from bondage and set you free.
To flourish and blossom in the garden of life
Free from struggles, worry and strife.
Each day new choices will come your way
Look to Me first and be sure to obey.
And I will direct the path at your feet
Walk with Me, in fellowship sweet.
Still your heart and calm your mind
Remember My child, I am loving and kind.
I'll never leave you on this road
And I'll even bear your heavy load.
Just persevere when the journey seems long
Lift your voice.. sing a victory song.
Stay the course and be true to the end
For I am your Deliverer, your greatest Friend.
I know every twist and turn up ahead
I see every struggle, every tear you will shed.
Only remember you are never alone
This path will lead you to Heaven's home.
When griefs and burdens feel too much to bear
I am the One who will always share.
My Peace in the face of all your trials
I'll sojourn with you over all life's miles.
When it's dark and cold in the depth of your soul
Take solace in Me, I will make you whole.
This is the journey of faith in the Son
So take My hand that we might be one.
Laughing and sharing as best friends do
My promise is ALWAYS to see you through.
Lift your head to see with your heart
Stay on Faith's pathway and never depart.
" Jeremiah 29 v 11 " For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

The generation of the upright will be blessed.
However to you, I must confess –
The standard of the world and the Church has gotten tight.
But God, in all His power and might,
is looking at you and I to make it right.
Why, you ask?
Simply because people are destined to hell,
While the Church pretends that all is well.
“Everybody goes to Heaven” they say.
But sin is sending people to hell everyday.
It is time to wake up and fight.
Fight for your children, and then their children’s lives.
The generations of the Kingdom of God are depending on us.
But the question is: Who?
Who will do the work that needs to be done- Will it be you?
Don’t let your life pass you by and be empty handed.
The next generation is looking to you-
so fight and do what Christ has commanded..
A Daily Prayer
Set watch over my mouth,
father guard my tongue
Let me speak no evil of anyone
Humble my heart,
father help me obey
Give me wisdom and grace
to help guide my way
Set your light in me father
so that others may see
cast out all darkness
inside of me.
Thank you father
for washing me of my sin.
In Jesus name I pray these things,
Highway of Holiness
I’ve been persecuted, I’ve been abandoned
I’ve been spit on, I’ve fallen behind.
I’ve been mocked, I’ve been cheated,
I’ve lost friends I thought were mine.
But none of these things matter
because I’ve chosen a different life.
I’ve turned the other cheek and engaged the mind of Christ.
I’m on the Highway of Holiness.
I’m moving forward
I’ve been redeemed
I’m getting stronger
I’m pressing harder
I’m going higher
I’m coming clean
There Is A Place
There is place where He surrounds
where you don't care if any one is around.
It's a place with no pain,
a place where there's only His image to gain.
It's a place of no hindrances, issues or cares,
there is a place the Lord sets & declares.
It's a place of Joy & Strength,
It's a place where peace & rest takes its ranks.
A place of fullness, a place of Love.
A place where your eyes are fixed like a Dove.
For the Lord would say come and taste,
This place is called His Secret Place~
