Nurse/ Servant Prayer

In 1997, I composed this poem, it was published with the spiritual reflections, of other staff and volunteers, to meet the spiritual needs expressed by clients and families.

Nurse / Servant Prayer:

I pray that I can follow through with His plan of care and His orders. His orders are standard and written legibly for me to understand. I pray if I am unable to carry through His orders and should I make a mistake, He with His grace, will rectify and understand the situation/ or circumstance, continuing the healing process that His children deserve, enabling me to proceed and fulfill each client’s ( the world is our client) needs. Let me be the “Lady with the Lamp,” not only in the sense of the meaning given to Florence Nightingale, but in the meaning of His teachings in saving souls, bringing the unknowing out of the darkness into the light. Let me tend to your flock, for you have placed me in this position as nurse; providing me with the provisions and tools to continue my quest in this wide universal space where there are many in need. Father, sometimes I do not know where to start, but I can give what you have provided me with, to whom you desire.
Do not spare me from the tears I shed and the remorse I feel when I have visions of my brother, Jesus, streaming with the blood He bled. Do not spare me with the sweltering feeling of compassion when I know I must do what You proclaim in Jesus name. Always stay with me, comfort me, and bring me back every time I feel that I am not deserving of all You have given me. Keep me humble, Father. Touch all my clients and families with your loving grace and blessings be to them who realize You are the Controller and Healer of our lives. I love You and all You represent. This is my prayer in Jesus name. Amen.
Your Nurse/ Servant.

Is Your Light On?

My question today can be very detrimental to you being prepared for the “The Lords Day, Jesus Second Coming.”

Is your light on? Not your front porch light, but the light of the Holy Spirit. the Holy Spirit is more powerful than any manmade light, it is like a solar light that collects it power from the Sun and shines in the darkness to light one’s path. As described in Psalm 119: 105, “God’s word is a lamp for our feet, a light on our path.”

The Holy Spirit’s role/ ministry is to illuminate scripture, so the believer will behold the glory of the Lord “with unveiled faces” and become transformed into the image of Jesus Christ, this is an ongoing transforming process (2 Corinthians 3:18). The Holy Spirit is needed

to reduce the works of the flesh (Roman 8:13); adultery, fornication uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outburst of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like(Galatians 5:19-21). As believers we need a secured victory over the flesh, that is why a believer must be led by the Spirit (Romans 8:14). I say, how happy are those who understand that the gift of the Holy
Spirit, is the Spirit of God, given to believers so they will have the understanding what God has freely
given them (1 Corinthians 2:12); He is the Spirit of truth and He will guide you into all truth (John 16:13).

I urge you, believers, to allow the work of the Holy Spirit to create in you the good fruits of Jesus Christ: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control Galatians 5: 22-24. Take time to eat and savor God’s Spiritual food.

Beloveds, be led and live by the Holy Spirit, walk on life’s paths, yielding to His moment to moment prompting, depend on His dependence of allowing Him to control your affections, thoughts, and actions (Galatians 5: 16- 26).

I urge, you not to commit the unpardonable sin against the Holy Spirit, the rejection of His lead (Matthew 12:31).
I also implore you to let Christ dwell in your hearts by faith, that you be rooted and grounded in love, emphasis on Ephesians 3:16,17); living as good citizens of the world, working and pleasing God as faithful servants. Studying, learning, and following the instructions on how to live, that Jesus and the Apostles have given you; in addition to, remembering the lessons in the past to prevent making the same mistakes/errors ( 1Corinthians 10:11).
I urge you not to reject instruction because in doing so you are rejecting God; God who has given you His Holy Spirit (1Thesalonians 4:1-8). Be wise and sincere in your hearts and not hypocritical, tend to your soul’s affairs; beloveds keep your Holy Spirit light burning. Are you awake? Is your light on? Are your lamps filled with oil? Is your soul ready for that glorious day of Christ second coming?

The Path

As I walk down the pathway of life.
I can hear His voice.
So soft spoken amidst the clouds.

He speaks to me with words
Of eminent dependence.
I know I am endowed.

The trees shield and embrace me.
In His arms.
The sun beaming upon my head,
Guides me and keeps me warm.

I will not lose my direction,
As long as I have His affection.
And yes, I have heard His voice;
And yes, I finally made the choice.

Soon there will be others like me.
Walking this path one day.
Coming together with one single goal.

To follow Jesus and what He is giving.
So this life will be truly worth living.

“ You will show me the Path of Life; in Your presence is fullness and joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forever more. “ Psalm 16:11

REACH

Reach out your arms and embrace someone tight.
Radiating His love through your soul to theirs.
Providing them with foresight.
Loving them with a passion of good taste.
Never causing them disgrace.
Dancing around in the circle of life.
Never worrying about,
How much has been sacrificed.
Only that the person you love
With respect and dignity.
Recognizes you are there,
Amid their troubles
And life’s complexity.

Be kindly affectionate with one another with brotherly love, in honor of giving preference to one
another, not lagging in diligence, fervent in Spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in
tribulation; continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.” Romans 12:10-13

Taste of Heaven

How sweet is a taste of Heaven? Are you desiring that sweet taste of Heaven? A taste sweeter than honey. It is possible for you to get a fortaste of Heaven. Are you asking how?

Be born again, “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith (1John 5:4 NKJV). Have you been born of God?

Listen to what Jesus has told you, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world (John 16:33).” Be an
over-comer. Are you listening to Jesus? Are you an over-comer?

Hold gallantly to your victory, for “The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:56-57). Are you holding on to your victory?

Stand firm in the Lord, ” be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil (Ephesians 6:10-11).” Are you standing firm in the Lord? Are you wearing your armor?

Be a promoter of heaven’s interests on earth and lead lives worthy of heavenly citizenship “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ (Phillipians 3:20). Are you promoting heaven’s interest or the world’s interest?

Savor and enjoy the sweet Words of God,” How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” Psalm 119:103. Are you tasting the sweetness of His Words?

Father, I pray that Your beloved children will enjoy a taste of Heaven here on Earth. Amen.

My Christian Walk

Ephesians 4:1. Walk worthy of the calling.

Examine me as I walk my Christian walk. Can you see want He sees?

What is His perspective of me, as I walk my Christian walk.

Can He see that I am His, by the way I move humbled by His grace, as I walk my Christian walk. Can He see His radiate love in my heart and the hand of giving. Placing others above myself, as I walk my Christian walk.

Does He see me eating His fruitful words filling me with His power, as I walk my Christian walk. Does He see me praying, witnessing, and edifying; being His voice, servant, and faithful steward, as I walk my Christian walk.

If He does not see these things in me, there is something carnally wrong, as I walk my Christian walk. 1/15/15
