He Knows Your name

 God is calling His loved ones by name

Watching their every move

Remember He created you

He is listening to every word someone speak

 Therefore, try not say or do anything

 That is contrary to His Word

Unless you want to feel the tip of Jesus’ sword

Y’all just wait He is not playing around

Wait until that trumpet sounds

Y’all can play the good, the bad, and ugly

But one day some of you gonna want to be

 Next to His Son, all lovey, dovey, and snugly

Best repent and do it now before the trumpet sound, cause

God is bringing His sons and daughters from all around

From the ends of the earth who bears His name

He knows who they are because He formed them

They were created for His glory

Be thankful He knows you by name

Reading: Isaiah 43:6-7

Sacred Love

Don’t try and overcome my feelings

or my qualities or gifts

My protector, my provider, my Lord the Absolute

 Thought of me when He gave of His sacred loving kindness

He has taken, me from the valley of emptiness

And in my weakness, He took me to the sea of hope

And filled me with His Spirit of completeness

His Son will always shine upon me

Even in the smallest of places

And the harshest of situations, I will have peace

He promised “I will never leave or forsake you

I am with you until the end of time

For I am yours and you are mine”

Now, that is what one would call sacred love

Readings: Numbers 6:24-26

     The Lord bless you and keep you, may He make His face to shine upon you and be gracious

to you; May He lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.

Butterfly,Red Robin,Wind

Like the soft colorful array of a butterfly’s wings

You Almighty Lord give me a cause to sing

Like the sounds of a Red Robin chirping

You Almighty Lord have told me what is certain

Like the wind blowing through my hair

You Almighty Lord have told me that you are here

Reading: Psalm 16:11

You make known to me the path of life;  in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Walking, Talking, and Laughing

One can only imagine walking and laughing with Jesus

Walking and talking, Him telling it like He sees us

Listening and knowing that His teachings are true

And Him giving direction in the life one must pursue

One can only imagine walking, talking, and laughing with Jesus

Walking in the pursuit of love, happiness, and peace

You and Him sharing His divine love to everyone He meets

Walking, talking, and laughing with Jesus is not your imagination

It is Him in reality living inside of you, an inner gratification

What joy it is to be walking, talking, and laughing with Jesus

Filled with His precious gift within us

Prayer: May you in faith and Spirit continue to walk, talk, and laugh in the true reality of Jesus.

Who am I?

Who am I some call me Master, Lord, or Adonai

Who do you say I am?

Will make a lot of sense if you know in your heart why

Some call me Father, the Shepherd, Rock, or Husband

Whom do you say I am?

Some call me Almighty or El Shaddai

I create, redeem, and judge

Whom do you say I am?

Feel my touch as I give you a soft nudge

Love so gentle, patient, and kind

Just look around you, look up, and look behind

Now do you know who I am?

Quote: To know Him, is to love Him, and to please Him.

Reading: Hebrews 11:6

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

Who am I?

Eat My Words

Ezekiel Chapters 1-3  

The story of Ezekiel starts out with his vision, for your understanding you must read Ezekiel chapter1 and ride on the wings of your spiritual  imagination. Moving right along, Ezekiel at the end of the vision saw the brightness of the glory of God, fell on his face, that’s when he heard God’s voice, even though he was an exile by the canal of  Chebar. Which goes to show you that God can speak to someone and they can hear His voice wherever they are and in whatever circumstance or situation. God spoke and addressed Ezekiel by calling him Son of Man and instructed him to stand up on his feet while He spoke to him. Like a son who acknowledges and respects his earthly father, Ezekiel stood on his feet and listened as our heavenly Father, God spoke to him. And this is what God said “ Ezekiel Son of Man eat whatever you find here. Eat this scroll and go speak to the House of Israel.”  So Ezekiel opened his mouth in obedience and consumed the scroll, God’s words, and found the scroll as sweet as honey and not bitter. Then God instructed him to go to the House of Israel and speak with His words to them. Just like Jesus telling His disciples go and teach the people to obey and do all that He has taught them (Matthew 28:20). God explained that He was not sending him to a people of hard language and foreign speech but to the House of Israel. God further explains to Ezekiel that Israel will not be willing to listen to Ezekiel for they are not willing to listen to Him because they have a stubborn heart and a hard forehead. I wonder if that is where some parents got the saying, “Don’t be a hardhead.” Well anyway,

 In the midst of things God made Ezekiel a watchman for the House of Israel. And God told him whatever you hear a word from my mouth you shall give them warning from me. So God gave him several statements of what he was to say to the wicked and to the righteous person who had turned from there righteousness and committed injustice, in addition to explaining to him the consequences of what would happen if he did not warn the people. At the end of chapter three, God told Ezekiel when He speaks with him, He would open Ezekiel’s mouth and he shall say to the House of Israel “ thus says the Lord God” not that one should be going around saying thus says the Lord God.” But Ezekiel was instructed to say it and to say to them “He who will hear let him hear, and he who will refuse, to let him refuse,” for they are a rebellious house. Reminds one of  the seven churches in Revelation who are to heed and hear what the Spirit says to the churches. “Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches” ( Revelation 2:29; 3:22). Wow! From Ezekiel to Revelation what can I say.

Moral of Story: One may have a vision or dream, and God may speak to them, they may have to eat His words and tell His people what He wants them to know even if they do not want to hear or refuse to listen.

Watch Out

Watch out for those filled with self-indulgence and greed

 Watch out for those who give you orders yet do not give you a helping hand

 Watch out for those who have shut the door of the Kingdom of heaven in people’s faces

 Watch out for those who appeared clean on the outside but dirty on the inside

The Lord has told them to love, show mercy, and be just

 Never forget that there is only one Father who is in heaven

And one instructor who is Christ

Watch out for the Pharisees.  Watch out!

Reading: Matthew 23:23

Code of Conduct

Love: In every relationship we must demonstrate love, dedication, and high moral standards. Love the Lord your God with your heart, with your soul,  and with all your strength (Deuteronomy 6:5), honor your father and your mother (Ephesians 6:2), and love your neighbor as yourself (Mark 12:31).

Respect: Demonstrate courtesy in all your interactions with others. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord my strength and my Redeemer (Psalm 19:14).

Kindness: True faith in God produces kindness, humility, justice, and compassion. Seek these attributes in order to please God wherever you are home, school, church, and community. And be kind to one another tenderhearted, forgiving one another even as God for Christ’s sake has forgiven you (Ephesians 4:32).

His Love

His love leaves a sweet taste on my tongue

Taste the Lord and see

He is sweeter than the honey made by the honeybee.

I tasted the Lord

 His addicting love made me desire Him more and more

Taste the Lord and you shall see that the LORD is good

His taste is even sweeter

When I smell His fragrant aroma of His presence

With the breeze of the wind in the air that I breathe

I take a deep breath and inhale to fill my soul

With love, peace, and hope and the taste of His love

Oh I say this day and everyday savior that taste

 Of the Savior’s love on your lips  

Taste the LORD and know He is good

Oh, I say this day and everyday savior that taste

 Of the Savior’s love on your lips

And share the essence of His sweet loving presence.

Reading: Psalm 34:8

Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
