In Memory of Cameron Brown age 9

Touchdown in Heaven

Though Cam may never play for the Buckeyes,Bengals or the Browns
in Heaven Jesus has a Jersey, with his name and his number 2
Though you may not see him make another pass or catch a ball
he will get wings to fly for rushing yards and never again fall
From grace to Glory he will forever run, jump and stand tall

There are no sickness or diseases in the fields God has grown
where he will run circles, around the little rascals who await
to share in their triumphs, their trophies and marvelous crowns
Is a place of laughter, joy and eternity without ever a frown
not a spot or a blemish on his record, will never, ever be found
From his departure to his celestial arrival, his body will be sound
just like grandma Harris, who will be cheering with the crowd
Cam's next big play is nothing less, then a Touchdown in Heaven

Have No Doubt

When in Doubt

We all have and will experience, some form of doubt
even the beast of the wild, or the bird up in the blue sky
have second thoughts, whether they can fight or fly
an ox, at advanced age, remembering his former and glory days
questions, can I plow this field, with the strength that remains

A driver on a wet, slushy and slow moving highway
ask himself, am I driving to fast, to negotiate the turn
A pilot gliding a plane or a conductor on a speeding train
equally unsettled, one heads for land and prays its the runway
for the other on the rail hopes, that their able to maintain

Easy to be unresolved, when uncertainty, one sustains
forbidding from asserting, ones trust or ones faith
thinking double is unstable and a clutter to ones brain
its better to be single minded, in order to qualify sane
Power from the All Sufficient, El Shaddai, ones mind is tamed.

For the Kingdom

Our duty as children of God is to sow for the kingdom of God. What ever it is that God has given you as a gift, is for you to use it to help souls come to know Christ. God has called us all to be and to make disciples of others. Every Christians duty first is to Love God with all their heart, soul, mind and with all your might. Second is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all who are lost with no hope and this falls into loving your neighbor as you love yourself. The other day I heart Dwight Thomson say on TBN that on any given Sunday only 10% of all the people in America will attend church. That hit me like a stone on the head and as I look through my list or my Archive of poems today this one poem made me think about how many people are lost in this world and that includes some of my own loved ones. So today I thought it was fitting to post this poem. God bless you and look and find out what is your Gift and use it to bring souls to Christ and His Kingdom.

The Compassion of Jesus

35 Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.
37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few.
38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
Matthew 9:35-38

Lost Souls

So many, so many wonderful but lost souls,
in a world full of Deceit, famine and decease,
searching for love, Hope and some peace,
but they hate, live with despair and hostility,
with no ability to mobilize their mentality,
for lack of sensitivity, honor is forgotten,

Like a snake after it has bitten, it wonders off,
looking for new prey, demons lurk and wait,
for one to stumble, so they can help one to fall,
from the sight of God and to the shame of man,
who trade sin for their honor, dignity and respect,
as though Jesus was old, winkle, cripple or dead
making HIM blind, so what they do, HE can't see,

The fool who thinks and believe that evil is unseen,
who's heart will not conceive, deeds unjustly deemed,
on earth our sins, ring and register books in Heaven,
where God will erase and your soul Jesus has redeem.

Love thee Creator

The Fangs on Creation

God in His image molded and breathed air in man
whom He created, from some dust in His hand
and Lord only knows, what else from the earth
rib from Adam and He created for him, Eve
to keep company, be companion and friend.

Allowed man the freedom, to name the beasts and birds

gave them fruits, seeds and the herbs from the dirt
Placed the planets in a universal and infinite space
that man has been intrigued, with Jah's amazing maze
Created the sun for light and heat from its rays
the stars to shine and guide, in the eve of day.

If you believe in Darwin, instead of Jesus Christ

you accept a theory and not His Father's might
If you acknowledge, that man evolved from a big bang
then you ought to adopt an ape and speak in slang
I will never be convinced and my heart and soul pangs
for man has been deceived, by the one, with the fangs.

The History of Creation

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.
5 God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.
Genesis 1:1-5

Wants, Needs and Lessons

I have found for sure that things don't always go as we plan. We don't always get what we want or when we want it. That at times when we get what we ask for, it is not what we really wanted. I have also learned that when we trust and thank God for what He gives us, that, that is all we need. God always finds a way to teach us in everything He dose, that He knows best what we need and latter we come to understand that what He gave us, is what we should have asked for, needed and wanted.

9 Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone?
10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent?
11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!
Matthew 7:9-11

There is a lesson learned on every Road

We may not always like, the topic or aim of that day
What is it Lord my God? that Your trying to me say
What is the knowledge, that My God is instill to convey?
What is the thought, You want me to chew right-away?
What is it my Lord, that as I walk, I should meditate?
What am I suppose to love and what is it You hate?
What question shall I ask, when to me, its to late?
What must I ponder upon?, that's Your will for my fate.

How do I stroll on this path? if not only by Your Faith.
How did I reach any destination? but by Your awesome Grace
How do I keep from straying? if not by Your Mighty Strength.
How do I remain this course? if it were not for Your Mercy.
How do I feel my way Through? but by my trust in Your Love.

Where from here do I go Lord? except to die at Your Cross.
Where is this mission leading me? I pray many souls to Calvary.

When will this Journey end? cause my hope is in Heaven.
and yes Lord I believe, There is a lesson learned, on every Road.

Confessions and Testimony of a sinner

Today I have made a conscience and by faith a decision to start writing my story .. who I was and who God has made me .. I said a few posts ago that I was going to start posting some of my writing of my personal story ,, my personal trial and tribulation that I experience when God called me to repent .. A time in my life when I was lost and thank God, that He came looking for and found me .. in my darkest moment He had mercy on me ..

About thirteen years ago was the first time that I can remember, God came to my rescue and sadly to say I turned Him down, I lived in a brand new house with my beloved wife and our five children .. My wife and I had backslide after serving God for several years and being leaders of young people .. my wife was a missionettes leader and I was a Lt. commander in the Royal Ranger for the Assemblies of God .. about a year latter we were facing foreclosure and during this period God did not allow me to sleep for fourteen days .. those days I experienced very heavy demonic oppression .. just like those of us who have claims to hearing the voice of God speaking to us .. well the weasel(satan) also will speak to you if you let him .. and most do in their lowliest of times .. that time in your life when you are weak and vulnerable, when nothing you do works, your business is going under, all small children looking at you going crazy and total loosing it and everything around you disappearing .. during those days .. especially those fourteen days I knew who God was and I also knew that if I would have turned to Him, He would have taken care of me and my family .. I remember telling Him to leave me alone and let me sleep .. and that's one thing God will always do and that is to give us freedom of choice .. God will not impose His will on us if we do not open the door of our heart for Him to enter ..

Ten years or so went by and life got back some what on track .. with a lots of ups and downs in our marriage as it is with most marriages who do not live in the comfort of our God .. then on May 18. 2006 that same oppressor attract my family, my marriage with a vengeance .. the Bible says that he comes to destroy and devour .. but thank God He comes in our hour of need to save and protect those He has called to be His children .. those which He has a purpose to do His will and for Him do a service .. that ugly day in may 2006 my beloved wife left for work as she did every morning. A few hours latter my one daughter who was living with us and raising my granddaughter in our home, called to tell me that my beloved wife and best friend had come come, pack and left.

Two days went by and all of my children had come together at my home to see and figure out what could be done to patch their family back together. my beloved wife was angry at the world and specially at me. for years I allowed my children who at this point were all grown up to live in my home and also to live as they wanted. both them and I lived in more sin then God could put up with. I have said it in the past that I had been raised in a Christian home and that still today my parents are pastors of a small Pentecostal church. Since my child hood and about the age of about fifteen I became very rebellious and stop walking in the path that my parents had taught me. even after a terrible car accident which left me with two broken legs, I still did not turn my heart to Christ and that is after also promising God that if I walked again I would serve Him.

On that second day after my beloved wife walk out on me, leaving behind 26 or more years of marriage, I left all my children and grandchildren to go and commit suicide. that Saturday morning I left and after driving hundreds of mile, I stop, rented a motel room were I was about to end my life. funny how God uses the person we most trust to call us back and that person at *:13pm called me. On the other end of the phone was my wife and for three hours cried and talked me into returning home. How I made it back and drove that hundred miles back is still a mystery to me today.

That same night May 20, 2006 around mid-night I gave my heart to Jesus and said do with me as you please. talk to me and I will follow. The day my beloved left, that same feeling from ten or so years ago was back and I knew that God wanted to take me on a personal journey. I also knew and accepted that fact that I would be awake for many, many days. I know today and have experience what Moses and many other servants of God in the old Testament went through when God would send them to the mountain for forty day. that night I made a promise to God that for my salvation and for the salvation of my wife I would not only do the forty days for myself but that I would do forty for my beloved wife. Today I am a little sad to say that my wife still wants nothing to do with God and that she once again has chose to be out on her own. Today it seems that the closer I try to get to God the further she wants to be from me.

I see in my life today many characters from the Bible. In my wife the hardening heart of the children of Israel and Pharaoh, who's heart Got hardened 10 or so times. In my self and in my writing I see the poetry of the prophets and there inspiration from God. I spent those 80 days in the presence of Jesus and our Father in Heaven. this gift to write, to write poetry could only have come from God, because as I have posted in the past, I myself was never able to spell or write anything and for this gift it is only God could get that Glory. I will leave it here for today and I ask all who read that God dose for my wife the same as He has done in me. I will soon start to post day by day the first forty days and what God showed and taught me. I believe that any man who is or is going to marry will benefit from what I am about to post.

Earthly or Heavenly Treasures

A shack for some, for others a house and to fools, a mansion
some say just a roof, others call it home , but the fool, his life
He idols his cars, treasures his gold and forsakes his wife
he steals from his neighbor , out of envy and for strife
Then lies for pleasure to more treasures, yet is never satisfied

For material things, gambles away what is just and right
Ungrateful, lust and greed, is a tight noose, that's hard to fight
Deceit is satan's reward and the only plaque for you, he will write
but God slips all knots, He's righteous Might and a bright Knight

He is whom we ought to seek, not the deeds of darkness nights
pursuit the treasures that are for Glory and pleasant in His sight
forgiving all them who test your faith and see not the light
Peace with those who war against your flesh to smite
Give Hope to the needy, the widow and thee ungodly type
Love those who curse, hate and wrongfully betray and despise
for riches and treasures is their reward, on earth and their life.
So store up treasures in Heaven, cause there, life and eternity lies.

Lay Up Treasures in Heaven

19 "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal;
20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.
21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

There's always going to be


There are those who changes bring no matter
who do not sweat, stress or lose a wink
they do not see, but with their hearts believe
that with a few alterations, there comes relieve

With some modification, we will soon achieve
fortification for our body, mind and our soul
for salvation is the willingness, to let the past go

Christianity is not religion, but the way Christ walked
teaching us to love, starts with the heart we talk
our thoughts we must learn, to keep under control
cause actions speak volume and can lead to remorse

Though at moments, life may pitch you a curve
an unexpected twist or an unwanted turn
its just an opportunity, to make a new covenant
to start life once again, with a purpose and a plan

Today is by far the best of all and of any given day
for tomorrow is not guarantied, a chance for Changes.

Every week either on Sunday or on the first Monday of the week .. I look forward to posting and writing what I felt in my heart that I had learned .. Last week is not that I didn't learned anything .. The class was on "Stewardship" .. in fact it was probable the most important class for me .. see and I will confess that in all things I have not been a good steward with everything in my life .. no .. I am not going to go into details about some of my personal down falls .. at lest not right now but in the future I will tell you when God has finished the good work He has started in my life .. to God be all the Glory and Praise when I do reveal those matters at hand in the moment .. so if anyone wants to tell me how they came about being good stewards in the area they were not .. I would love to listen because maybe it is in the area I have to grow .. "Stewardship 401" it should have been titled .. One thing that is most important and this I know to be true .. that to be a good steward is to give God a tenth of everything you gain .. of all your increase .. even of your time .. 16.8 hours of the week .. take that time to do something for the kingdom of God ..

Do Not Rob God

8 “ Will a man rob God?
Yet you have robbed Me!
But you say,

‘ In what way have we robbed You?’
In tithes and offerings.
9 You are cursed with a curse,
For you have robbed Me,

Even this whole nation.

10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,
That there may be food in My house,
And try Me now in this,”
Says the LORD of hosts,

“ If I will not open for you the windows of heaven
And pour out for you such blessing
That there will not be room enough to receive it.
11 “ And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes,
So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground,
Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,”
Says the LORD of hosts;
12 And all nations will call you blessed,
For you will be a delightful land,”
Says the LORD of hosts.
Malachi 3:8-12

Work in Progress

I know that today, I sit here broke but amaze
what may seem to most, a life in some disarray
but in God, I have put my trust and my faith
that the future is His promise, of hope and grace

Deal is to stand strong and not wander or wave

continue the course, with what ever gift, He gave
You are to serve the Kingdom and forget self worth
for what good are all the riches, of this corrupted earth
if at the end your soul, you can't bond, redeem or trade

For all gold is left to someone else, to use and expend

as they see deem, cause you they know, are no longer concern
So we must live daily, as if it were our last and final stance
asking for and accept forgiveness, while we still have a chance

For God's love Is greatly patient and noticed at first glance

to all who seek from inward, where the soul and spirit dance
find open doors to the heart, the beginning of a heavenly trance

Forms from our weakness, a new mind, body, heart and soul

Re-wiring the mind, re-building the body, healing the heart
and saving our souls, is the only reason, why Jesus departed
Because man sins, we all come daily, short of His glory

that's why till the resurrection, we are a Work in Progress.

To Heaven a Little Early

6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,
7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
10 But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.
11 To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
1 Peter 5:6-11

Two nights ago I found out that one of my son's friend .. mother is in the hospital dieing of cancer .. that the cancer had spread to her brain .. they gave just a few days to live .. This young man who is only 20years old and is an only son has also been like a son to me .. I have two sons and they both have friends that have been coming to my house .. some before they were even teens .. they have grown up in my home .. this group of young men are all between 20-30 years old.. I refer to them and this is so not one could say that I care or love one more then they other .. I call all of them "number three son" .. and Philip is one of my "number three sons" .. I did not really know his mother .. met her a few times .. she was pretty much to her self .. spoke mainly German .. I knew that for a while she had been sick but I did not know the extent..

Yesterday I felt touched to my heart to go visit her to the hospital .. to witness and to pray for her .. I was not going there to pray as much for God to heal her .. which I do know that He is all powerful and also merciful .. I just figure that everyone should be spoken to of the mercy and grace of God .. of His salvation and most important about eternity at that point in their life .. when soon in the land of the living they will no longer be.. unfortunately she was not coherent .. she seem to be in a lot of pain and definitely not at peace.. since I could not talk or make conversation with her... I just held her hand and prayed to God to let her rest and be at peace .. I thank God that when we left she no longer was moving uncontrollably and groaning
or trying to make her self lose from the straps that tied her arms to the rails on the sides of the bed..

Later that night I said Lord why did I go there for .. its not like I was able to preach to her .. but I was reminded of a conversation I had a little earlier .. in fact just a few hours before I had left to go to the hospital .. I was speaking to one of my sisters who serves the Lord .. she is a good grounded Christian and has been serving the Lord for 20 or so years .. she had told me that God speaks to us when He wants us not to do something or to do something .. she said or asked me if I have ever heard the voice of God .. I said yes I have .. well God also talks to our hearts when He wants us to stop behaving a certain way .. or when we are wearing a certain type of clothing that may be offensive to Him and provocative to others.. to the men out there which that is exactly what her testimony was about .. she said listen to me bro .. when God wants you to stop doing something .. that He dose not approve for your own good .. you will know because the conviction will feel heavy.. she said we should ask God to remove from us those things which stop the flow of His blessings .. and when we pray this God will let us know .. He will speak to us and we must be willing to listen ..

I have been praying these words for a while .. after my conversation with my sister and after I return from the hospital .. I was out side talking with my son E.. .. I asked him if Philip's mom smoked cigarettes and he said she was a heavy smoker .. two seconds later just as my sister and I were talking earlier that conviction wight heavy in my heart .. that God may not send people to hell if they serve Him with their heart and continue to smoke .. but yes they are going to die an ugly death.. that is to say their human body is going to die younger and again in an ugly way .. and yes that they are going .. To Heaven a Little Early ..

Now to end my thoughts I will take you back to the scripture at the top of the page .. mainly to verse #8

8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 1 Peter 5:8

Looking at this woman lying there .. knowing that the end for her is soon knocking at her door.. reminded me of this verse .. that satan is doing everything he can to destroy our life's and the life of those close to us..

God Bless you today and ask yourselves today .. what is it that God wants me to get rid of in my own life to make me healthier or just a better child of God

A Mother's Wisdom

I started the day with the same thought that I left off yesterday, at around 1:30am this morning my daughter who is 7months with her second child and this is my forth grandchild .. I thank God for all of them.. her and her husband and my 1year old grandson Patric are staying with my beloved wife and I for 4 to 5 months to save some money to move to N. Carolina so big daddy Patric can study to become a Nascar mechanic .. well she woke the wife and I up to tell us if we knew that the electric was out .. we realize that the other houses were without power themselves .. so I just went back to bed .. woke back up around 7am and since there still was no electric I went off to Dunkin Donuts for the morning Java .. I wanted to write earlier since the thoughts were still on my mind .. thank God at 10am there was power again .. by then it was not raining any more so it was time to clean the pool .. see it was a storm that caused the power to go out and the rest of the day it has been on and off with the rain .. before I stared to clean the pool I decided to call my Mom .. my mom as I had stated in one of my past post is a Godly woman .. she is about as pure as one can be without yet getting to heaven .. my mom has been serving the Lord since 1963 .. she is a good student of the Word of God and a mighty prayer warrior .. she also possesses alot of wisdom and a good understanding of the Word of God ..

I called her and said mother I am going to ask you a question and before you answer me I want you to think first .. because I would like your answer to be one word .. she said .. OK .. I said in one word mother why do you think that God heals or answer some peoples prayers and request and others He dose not .. she went to give me her quick answer and I said wait there is more to the question then you have heard .. why if there is so many people praying to God for a miracle .. all together believing God to do this one act of healing .. why then dose He chose not to answer our prayer .. I could hear her thinking Just for a brief moment and then her answer was .. that we have to trust God and have FAITH .. the word that I was looking for .. in one word she said that would be it .. Faith .. to test our Faith .. she then really stunned me when she said .. consider the man Job .. I'm telling you I not only smiled on the other side of the phone but she also gave me the goose bumps .. I said mother I am happy that you have said what you said because everything you have told me is what I already wrote yesterday .. funny how some times God puts in our hearts something yet we look for confirmation else where .. I am saying this because yesterday I try to call my mom to post this question to her before writing my post .. not being able to call her I just said what I felt God has lead me to say or write is more like it .. I never look other then to God for my words .. for my inspiration .. but afterwards someone that I be talking to will tell me the same as I had already wrote .. so I have learn to trust God that I never have to look further then Him for answers ..

Again I will say that it is all about faith .. our faith to trust God even when He dose not answer our prayer request .. the crazy thing is that our faith is built up when God is merciful and answers our prayers, our needs and even our wants .. but God forbid if He has a different idea for the situation, if His reason dose not fit in our heads at the time .. if He decides that we would be better off in the long run .. but we can not see that far ahead .. then we are questioning His decision and seeking answers from Him .. some people get mad at God if they don't get their answers .. funny thing with God is He has to answer to no man .. and that is where FAITH comes into play .. trust God for everything and in everything and you would not have to ask Him anything .. Just have Faith and you will always have His peace also ..

Faith Triumphs in Trouble

1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance;
4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope.
5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

Why some and not Others??

Yep, I am going to say it.. " Its all about FAITH"! .. bottom line .. now maybe right now you may not agree .. but I will ask you to search your heart .. do you have faith in God .. do you have faith that He is Almighty .. you truly believe that Jesus walk this earth two thousand years ago and that He is the Son of God .. do you also believe that He rose and gave life to the dead and healed the blind, the deaf and the you believe that He died at Calvary and that from the died He rose .. if we do its by faith that we believe .. its by faith that we live .. with faith that one day we will spend eternity in our Father House .. that Heaven is were the faithful will dwell ..

dwell live or stay as a permanent resident; reside. live or continue in a given condition or state: to dwell in happiness.

Its funny that I stop and went to look up the spelling to such simple a word .. it just didn't look right or correct .. had it right but the real reason I went there was so that I would see exactly what the meaning is (dwell) to live or stay as a permanent resident .. you have faith that you will dwell in heaven .. then with that same faith you must believe that God makes the choices .. that He has His reasons why some and not others .. maybe for hundreds of reasons and every case is different ones .. to test the hearts of man is for sure one of those reasons .. and I would say this is present in many more then not cases .. if we have faith in God, we have to have faith like that of Abraham .. how about Moses and David .. all had faith in the face of death ..

How about the servant Job .. who do you know that has endured more then this guy .. nobody .. and we are all right .. and if you know of anyone .. then Job must still be alive and I would like to meet him .. today .. and further more Job never cursed God .. God give and God takeith away .. Job always and through everything he kept his faith in God .. he loved God while all was great and he loved Him during his tribulation .. and God did not just give him a pat on the back for his faithfulness .. the Bible tells us that God blessed Job more in his latter day more then at the beginning (12 Now the LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning;
Job 42:12) if you do not know the whole story of Job I suggest that you open your Bibles and read it.

Hey I know as well as the next guy that has been healed by the Mighty hand of God that God today heals those who in Him put their faith .. in fact God healed me when I first came to His feet and I did not even asked Him to .. He just knew that I suffered with a really bad knee due to a hit and run when I was 17 years old and for over 25 years I lived with pain and swelling, God healed my dad of prostate cancer and many others I know and some I don't .. but I have been there to be a wittiness .. God expects us to have faith and to trust Him even when we do not understand why He chose not to answer the prayer of his people .. we must always pass the test .. we have to trust God and His decisions .. even if we do not like or agree with the call .. we don't always have to understand but we have to have faith .. because God knows the heart of man ..

Today I will finish not with one of my poems but with a word from one of my favorite preacher and teacher Joel Osteen .. it will speak volume on this touchy subject .. God bless you and for your own sake .. keep the faith in good times and in your trials and your tribulation because no matter how you see things, God is good..

Live a Resurrected Life

Every person goes through adversities or times of difficulty. Maybe you didn’t get a promotion you deserved, or you lost a loved one, a friend betrayed you. It’s easy to get negative and bitter and lose your enthusiasm for life, but understand today, you are not defined by your past, you are prepared by your past. Every challenge you’ve been through, every adversity you’ve faced, God has deposited something on the inside of you. Your character was being developed. Strength was being increased. Your vision was being enlarged. With every difficulty, you can experience a new level of God’s goodness!

You may have had unfair things happen, but remember, all things work together for good when you love the Lord! It doesn’t say that all things are good, but God will turn your test into a testimony. No matter what challenge you may be facing now, no matter what you’ve experienced in your past, if you’ll stay in faith God will turn it around for your good! Choose to have a resurrection mentality—you may have gone through an emotional death, and burial but it’s time for you to rise again. God wants to give you His beauty for ashes, and joy for mourning. He wants to bring you out stronger, happier, healthier, better off than you were before!

I promise to pray and meditate with the Lord further on this topic and post it on a later day and if you have an opinion or a comment I would love to hear from you ..

Jah Bless .. Tbone out

I Thank Jah

The last couple or few days, things that have happened mainly in the life of others .. some of them I have never met but have come to know .. here in this little world called the Internet .. blog city .. which by the way I thank Jah for .. a way to see others from a whole different view .. the view from their heart, their mind and at times their soul .. I thank Jah because its a way or an avenue if you may also see it that way .. to reach out and touch the heart of many .. in hopes of winning their souls for the Kingdom of Christ .. I was introduced to blogs through a friend who has a site where she post only prayer request and sends this list once a week to all our prayer warriors .. months ago she sent me a link to a site so that we may pray for this certain Godly and young woman .. after reading that blog for a few days I knew this was the way to get the Word of God out for those who love to write .. for those call to write .. for those with a gift to write .. personally I don't think I would be good in front of lots of people .. a small group I'm OK .. you just don't feel like all eyes are on just you .. and one on one praise God I love that .. like a level field .. but this Internet with its websites, information and blogs as far as I'm concern, there God sent ..

We must give thanks to God for everything .. and also to our fellow man we should thank for their deeds, for their contribution to something or for anything they have done to impact good in our life .. when I started reading that blog that link took me to . I became with out any thought to do other wise .. hook and involved in another persons life .. I started to feel for them .. I found myself praying for people I did not know .. only by name and a photo or three..
that one site lead me to a few others and again other people with prayer needs .. one was a little girl called Gracie only months old and today she went to be with the Lord.. I pray to God to comfort those two parent and that He may bring them peace .. I say and most will agree that God always has a reason why He guides or leads us to certain places at a certain time in our life's ..
I have been writing for over two and half years almost on a daily bases since the Lord call me to do so .. I have ask God why me to write for you when I have or at the time was the worlds worst speller and can't write a page a month if I had to .. and His answer to everyone is that where we are the weakest is where and when He is and makes us the strongest .. God gets more Glory when He takes someone who can not do something and shows them that with and through Him, you are able to do the things you and everybody else knew you could not do .. but are doing what you thought was impossible and when the others see that .. they have no choice but to believe that it had to have been God's doing .. praise God cause He dose know everything .. His wisdom and knowledge is all we need and we can accomplish the unthinkable .. but from all that writing, all I have is thousands of written but unseen and unread pages .. about six month of hand written scriptures and lessons taught to me by the spirit of God Almighty who to us revels all things .. and over two year of the same but on my PC .. after months had gone by, I thank Jah for allowing me to be a part of someone Else's life .. and I thank the others who have some fantastic blogs and pages posted out there .. who expose their imperfect life's for the Glory of God ..

In the near future I will put out my journey, one that if it were not for the mercey of Jesus, I would not be here today .. my wife would be lost in a world that is corrupt and my five children would not have a father but a basket case or worst a dead one .. a journey that lasted 80 days of pain and healing of body, soul and mind, 80 days with many sleepless nights or more like weeks .. but we will not get in to that today .. that is a story for the future and only God knows when the time is right for everything .. all I really wanted to say is give Jah(God) thanks for everything .. for the Good and also for the not so good ...

11 Yours, O LORD, is the greatness,
The power and the glory,
The victory and the majesty;
For all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours;
Yours is the kingdom, O LORD,
And You are exalted as head over all.

12 Both riches and honor come from You,
And You reign over all.
In Your hand is power and might;
In Your hand it is to make great
And to give strength to all.

13 “Now therefore, our God,
We thank You
And praise Your glorious name.
1 Chronicles 29:11-13

Today I want to finish by thanking God first for everything in my life but most for His wisdom .. and last but definitely not lest .. thanks to all you "Blogers 4 Christ" for you inspired me to put it all out there and let God do His works .. I will pray for you all and have faith that you do the same for me .. and for that

I thank Jah

I thank Jah first each morning, for the breath I'm about to take
I thank Him for the smile my beloved shares every single day
I thank Him for the water, that splashes early upon my face
I thank Him for what the fridge holds to drink, eat or just taste

I thank Him even when I step out, to find my car is on three legs
I thank Him for the rain that pours, while the jacks on the floor
I thank Him cause worst or death, may have knocked at my door
I thank Him for my peace, joy and for being in my life the core

I thank Him when I am weak and my mind and body are worn
I thank Him for I'm lifted by His Word, feeling strong, not scorn
I thank Him in trials to tribulations, for they build my character
I thank Him though I may not understand, the reason or Factor

I thank Him for the awesome sunrises and the wet sunsets
I thank Him when the stars shine, hoping to catch one that jets
I thank Him when I pray for kin, friends and those I never met
I thank Him before I rest, for He is my protector, light and friend
I thank JAH for the spare ribs I'm about to grill, bless and feed
