Over and Over (Faith Poem)

When the hits come

Over and over

Know that the Lord will provide

Over and over

♦~♦

When you fall down

Over and over

Know that the Lord

Will lift you up

Over and over

♦~♦

There is nothing

In this life

That will ever defeat you

When you walk

With the Lord

♦~♦

Praise Him for His love and His faithfulness

Over and over

Staying Strong

There will be times in your life when the world will pull you in directions that you know God would not approve of. These “worldly directions” may seem tempting and/or almost unavoidable, but God’s will should always be your focus.

Your emotions may fight you, and your heart may ache, but you must always choose God’s way over your own. He knows what is best for you, and He can see your needs and circumstances much better than you can.

Staying strong on the path that God has planned for you is vital. I encourage you to continue to learn about the Lord and to pray for revelation of His will for your life.

Bruises and Scars (Faith Poem)

Why do we hide

Each bruise

And each place

Where we are scarred?

*

Are we ashamed?

Do we believe that we are marred?

*

Our Heavenly Father

Wants to heal each bruise

And each scar

The ones on the surface

And the ones inside

That we bury on purpose

*

Our scars and bruises

Need not define who we are

And they should never

Cause us to be ashamed

*

While we heal

We need remember

We can walk confidently

In a love that’s real

The love of our Lord

Even when others

Seem to have no love to give

Coronavirus and Emotional Thinking

As you have probably heard, much of the world is in a state of alarm over an illness called the Coronavirus.

I encourage you to be wary of emotional thinking/decision-making concerning this outbreak. Acting out of emotions like fear, worry, hyper-control, or phobia can be dangerous for your mental, physical, and spiritual health.

I am not telling you to ignore this current trouble, but I am telling you that you can plan and prepare in a calm and logical manner.

I also want you to know that God will take care of you and your loved ones when you walk in the power of His Kingdom and listen closely to Him. He is our Hope, Healing, Peace, and so much more.
