red rose, smitten, love, God

I must confess that I have been bitten. The werewolf did not do it. The vampire is not the one guilty. It was someone else. Someone I met long ago. Someone that touched the fabric of my clothes as the oil dripped from my forehead. I recall the anointing.

I recall the power of God grabbing a hold of my mind and changing my thoughts. I was going in one direction, not the group, and found another. I changed the way I dressed. I changed the way I spoke. I changed the way I viewed life. For the first time I viewed life from an eternal perspective at not local.

No one told me to change. The Holy Spirit told me to change. I chose to be obedient. He chose to continue speaking. Disobedience closes the mouth of God and like the children of Israel you will wander aimlessly without direction and live in confusion.

Some believers, so called, said to me it does not take all that. You are being legalistic. Those same believers, so called, have cheated on their wives, lost their jobs due to drunkenness and have molested their children. I hear the words previously spoken “it does not take all that.” Really!!

Why would God in his complete awesomeness give us the Holy Spirit if he wanted us to continue living the way we lived without him? Why did he send his only Son? For me to say “it does not take all that?”

I assure you, it takes everything we have to live holy.

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: Matthew 7:22- 24



I am determined to move beyond myself and extend my care for others. I will not allow an apathetic disposition to uproot the plan of God. I will extend love as far as I can and depend upon my God to hold me up. I will not trust in man nor be dismayed by apathetic so-called Christians who do not take the word of God seriously.

I will not fear when God clearly has spoken upon the pages of his book that he brings with his Spirit POWER.  POWER to defeat fear and give me a sound mind. My mind has become filled with God’s wisdom and I choose to lose my mind and receive his. I suggest we daily do this. The world is growing darker. We must arm ourselves with the same mind of Jesus and prepare to suffer.

Suffer for loving the world while it rejects us. Suffer while we extend love and receive hate. Suffer for the cause of Christ. You can suffer and have joy at the same time. Have you ever hurt over a lost loved one that was heaven bound?

I thank God I was once blind, but now praise the name of Jesus, I see.

I Put On…

There are so many voices that speak, but who says you have to listen? God says, set your affections on things above and not on the earth. When spiritual creatures of immense dark power come raging with false accusations and false prophecies of defeat, put on the full amour of God. Put on every piece and let his voice alone speak into your mind and fill the depths of your heart, so that when its time perform his word in your life, no weapon formed against you will prosper.

Similar to this commercial I simply put on Christ.


Then He spoke a parable to them that men always ought to pray and not lose heart Luke 18:1

As a believer in Jesus the unanswered prayer is the most discouraging aspect of prayer. Much of our prayer is to fulfill our own selfish lust, but for those prayers offered that have not been tainted with selfish lust we wonder why the delay. So our response is to cease praying about it. Now if God has given you the answer and you do not like it, know that he is superior and his wisdom exceeds that of your own and he knows best. If you are waiting on the Lord, have faith the answer is on the way. The unjust judge in the parable in Luke 18 granted the woman her request because of her continual coming and God has promised to do the same for us, in the midst of him being slow to move. The requirement is having faith in God continually and ceasing not in same prayer request and it shall come to pass.


love, poetry

Do you love me? Do you desire the best things in life to happen to me? Do you want to see me prosper? Are these questions making you uncomfortable? Why? When is the last time you put aside your pride and need to be above and not beneath to show love?

Not some anemic substandard love, the love that causes an inner movement. Not some ungodly lust, but your tongue filled with words that edify.

You have been hurt. I know. You have been lied to. You have been cast aside by someone in the church. You think because you have been hurt that closing the doors to love is the best policy. No, no. Not so.

There is nothing in life more precious than love. There is no greater power and motivation on earth. A man’s love for a woman can be so powerful that he will start a war with a nation. Ask Samson. So powerful that fear looks at it and fears. Love is relentless.

When executed properly it will destroy burdens and remove sickness. When executed properly, it will melt the hardest heart and break into tears the strong man.

God himself is love. You will never be more like God, then when you love your enemy as yourself. Remember, God rains on the just and unjust. The secret to having love is simple and hard. I have found that when I worship God in song DAILY, the anointing of God falls and empowers me to love others. It is only when God is the object of my affection that I will have the expression lived out in representation of my conversation.

Lovers Only
