When did My name become a byword? A curse on the tongue of My creation, the ones I created in My image, the ones I sent My only, begotten Son to save.
L.O.V.E. : A Poem (Winter 2018)
Presidents, political parties, policies, etc. don’t change the hearts of men, only the one, true living God does that. God draws men unto Himself (John 6:44). Jesus reveals the Father to whom He chooses (Matthew 11:27). Man has no control over that! No matter who is the President of the United States of America, God is in control of it all. His will is always done, no matter what man is put in office, no matter what policies and laws are enacted.
Here’s to being blood bought, forgiven, saved, redeemed, accepted in the Beloved, children of the Most High God!
If we are going to love the way God wants us to, we need to have a revelation on love. God didn’t ask us to love, He commanded us to love.
I wrote this poem when I was green, naive, and a bit deceived! Ayeeee, that rhymed. No, but seriously, I wrote this when I was angsty and in strong “like” with someone. Poetry is not my normal form of expression but I guess all things are possible when you’re in your feelings. 😉
There is one thing that we all want. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’re from, or what you’ve gone through. We all want love.
One of the things I love about God is that He so loved the world, not just some of the world or only the “good” parts of the world. No, He so loved the entire world that He sent His Son to die, not just for some people but for all people. And whosoever, not just white people or black people or rich people or poor people or perfect people or almost perfect people, but ANYONE who believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life
The Lord said this to me one day during my quiet time with Him. He is so sweet, tender, and loving in that way. He speaks truth to the broken places within us so they can be healed. He loves us into wholeness.
I’ve had the opportunity because of COVID-19 to spend an inordinate amount of time with my family. During this time, God has blessed me with the opportunity to serve, love, and humble myself by extending grace, mercy, and forgiveness when I feel like I’ve been wronged, and I don’t want to forgive.
