Featured Article Inspirational Word *Peace* The best way to find peace with the world is to find a comfortable place in your life, where you are totally at peace with yourself. You can achieve this by first accepting all flaws everything about yourself: Only then will you find happiness Find out what makes you happy, what makes you cry, what makes you sad. At that point you can show the world the positive energy you’ve acquired, because we know that we determine our own happiness. Peace is always something everyone should have, without peace we are unable to effectively handle things that arise in our impromptu days. People should never be able to detect your emotions from your personal life; You do not want to live drawing other people’s negative energy towards you. Have you ever seen a person who seems upset all the time? As if nothing makes them happy? Without peace there is a lack of joy, without joy, there lacks love, the lack of love is the lack of God, The lack of God is the lack of trust…Without any of these, there’s no happiness resulting in destruction and therefore lacking peace.
The law of attraction reads : you have the power to attract thing to you. With that notion alone, the world can become a much calmer place to if we obtain PEACE. -

Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other, or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and Mammon.
The Enemy in Self It's the royal rumble don't fumble It's the world against.....God? This is how we live, we spend 95% yet struggle for 10 to give. We lust instead of trust we fall instead of stand you have woman liking woman and man liking man It's the bottom of the ninth It's the fourth quarter Why must men who could be fathers date women who could be their daughter's The way's of the righteous is cut quick with sin's knife Itâ€™s a cold world and this unfortunately is life. It's the world vs. God? hmmmm just know God will always win the devil is a liar defeat the enemy within. Love not the world....for the the world is not enough IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL GET GOD WHEN THE GOING GET'S ROUGH
'I got some dirt on my shoulder, can you brush it off for me" You've every climb every mountain, but still some be hate You answer every question...yet there's still room for debate You know hell is hot and Heaven can't wait. Seven is completion.....the new beginning is the number eight. I see the look in their eyes, don't be alarmed Under the careful watch of God....I shall not fear the devil's harm. As much as I can, as many time's hell's henchmen are in my face. I know turning to Jesus, the devil will be erased. I move mountains cause God said I could Jesus said bear up my cross, like he knew I would The devil comes and tests me; I try not to fail like he thinks I should. I stiffen my back and climb every mountain and lift up every boulder I brush of them devils, and get their dirt of my shoulder. I'm tempted, but I try not to fall I turn to Jesus IN THE MISDT OF IT ALL My people, my family God's people, God's family As the devil's and hell's henchmen try to lure me I got some dirt on my shoulder, will you brush it off for me.

And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided agaisnt itself shall not stand.
(With you I'm Born Again) Often times because of money, power, or the yearning for repsect the child called chaos is born. As individuals, as children of God we fall subject to these demons. In the corporate world there is downsizing. In the household there is divorce, abuse and neglect. The number one "killer" isn't guns or war, the number one killer is selfishness and greed. The Bible says "The love of money is the root of all evil". The Bible also reads "We must put on the whole armor of God". Life is one challenge after another, It's one mountain after another Yet we can't stop till we finish the race....and can't no mountain ever be high enough. However one thing remains the same JESUS IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY AND FOREVER. We are all safe in his grace, We must be content in whatever state we are in. IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL. Martin A. Bryant
Matthew 16:13,15 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying Whom say ye I am? He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am
(With You I'm Born Again) Get Back If You Don't Know Him Like That People speaking Christian Unity, Wanna prophesize about you and me But the devil is a liar and has no place in God's society. God said do not use my name in vain and people say the God this and that giving him false fame. IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL We need to bring God back The devil trying to bring the heat like a three headed attack But we aren't talking about balling IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL In God I'm calling..... Some may say In God we Trust But you need to get to know him better Itâ€™s a must. For God I live and for God I die. The devil doesn't know the HIM in me.
Matthew 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls (With you I'm Born Again) "I Don't Know What You Heard About He" Who are you listening to And what are they saying. Recognize the power in He...The He in whom you are praying. Stop delaying....Your Husband my be your lord but he is not your God Your wife might be your strength, but she's not your staff and rod. I don't know you heard about He but he can move a mountain that stands in your way He can pay all your bills when you have nothing to pay His will and your works will take you to the next day. IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL I don't know what you heard about He but He said "Do this in remembrance of me"
Mark 12:31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
With you I'm Born Again Love Do we know how to love? Can we think of our enemy and the Lord above? IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL love is a hard sell Can one love in the midst of hell? Oh I love you, but sometimes I don't like your ways Lord lift me up in the darkness of days. One must love in the midst of war Love can be the medicine the closes the sore The enemy surrounds, The enemy hounds even false friends fake like they're down. IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL The greatest commandment is love. God so loved the world He sent His Son from above
Matthew 13:22 He also that received seed amoung the thorns is he that heareth the word; the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. (Countdown to Salvation) " Da Road " God woke me up this morning and said "to succeed, you gotta man up" I said, I accept this mission, please don't pass this cup. I'm lost in the forest sitting on Pandoraâ€™s Box I see lives lost, like wages cause we are punching the devil's clocks I'll take one cup of the blood of lamb either straight up or on the Church's rock. I see some of my people struggling... While I witnessed some being led away in chains and locks ANIMALS.... I see the backstabbing snakes and the pricele$$ fox. The mark of the beast is dollar $igns Whose screams you hear? Oh, those hollers are mine's I see vultures swarming Hell is hot and earth is hell Take witness to the global warming Filthy Lucre line's pockets while parishioners and corporate prisoners hear weeps and teeth nash Filthy lucred driven hands like whoremongers do anything for cash. Salvation cost, but it has nothing to do with selling one's soul Salvation is promised by God to all who believe Salvation is the key, cause in this world we all must leave In the end I can only ask God For forgiveness and to be BORN AGAIN.
"My people keep fighting against the powers, not the flesh"
Matthew 12:40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. (With You We Are Born Agian) "Ordinary People" We are just ordinary people We sometimes don't know which way to go We are ordinary people We need help in how we grow. Sometimes we live and learn Without faith we crash and burn The Gospel says, one day you will return. We know salvation is Heaven sent yet the world is hell bent We want to go where you've already went. Sometimes it seems we won't survive, With you we stay alive.... Jesus you are the truth and the way, you are no legend You are God's precious Lamb... Baptist John said one will come after me whose name is "I Am"
Lord we are ordinary people Who mess up along the way Lord we lift you up When we pray. We in life sometimes just don't know Youâ€™re always right on time...maybe we should just take it slow. We are ordinary people We need you salvation in the end You gave your life for us So in you we could be BORN AGAIN.

1 Peter 5:8 Be Sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. ( You Will Not Die Today)
Christian Soldiers...Where They At? We know who the enemy is He roams about, trying to get up in our biz. But where the fighter's at Where the soldier's at We know the world glued our backs to the wall But for Jesus we got fight and stand tall... Do that. Jesus fought and "died" for our sins all the while staying alive We need to wrestle the devil and live righteous in order to survive Jesus died, and beat the devil for us to eventually win Put on the full armor....and fight, and fight and fight against sin. We are the Christians Soldier's at You talking right, you dressing right, you looking right well today is the day And tonight's the night. Ask yourself ...are you acting right??
Genesis 8:22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. Job 26: 2-3 As God liveth, who hath taken away my judgement; and the Almighty who hath vexed my soul; All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostrils. Part 2 (You Will Not Die Today) The Storm Day and night will come It will rain and he will reign but through it all sustain....maintain It may be hard but the Lord's favor you will gain. Can you see the forest for the tree? Can you see the prayer for the hands and knees? Can you see the humility in asking the Lord please? IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL He will see you through In the midst of it all Do all you can do. His favor has to be earned Savor after him, and also yearn Not only read the word, study it and learn He said "For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light" IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL For Him, always fight.
Hebrews 10:32 But call to remembrace the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions. Matthew 10:28 And fear them not that kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
(You are not Gonna "Die" Today) Part One: A Desert Place Find life, You may be in the middle, thinking you have no proof... lost...like the listeners of the fiddler on the hot tin roof. Lost?, he will find you...look at the proof... Ask Adam who God punished but forgave the "wo" of man Put it together, Ask Noah, how he and family after the storm were the only ones left to stand? Ask Moses, who conquered with two tablets in his hand. Dance like David, who partied hard no matter where he roamed. Yet God allowed him to overcome giant odds with a sling and a stone. Can't overcome ask Samson who went bald and blind Betraying God's word Yet God traded everlasting life for forgiveness as Samson confessed and God heard. You will not die today, earthly, when you feel left out in the cold Rewards of overcoming happen when for Christ you are bold. It may seem like you are alone and left for dead in a deserted place... but look carefully in the sand and take hold of Jesus' face. He will not leave you nor forsake you If you are truly his child IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL He will rescue you from the wild. Ye of little faith... know who is ou defense. For He's more for us than the whole world against!!!!
Hebrews 13:6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Part 5 (Faith vs Man) I stand for something and try to not to fall for anything Jesus walks with me, as I go against everything For man, is man biggest enemy God is my ally vs. man and society. IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL Man fights man everyday yet soldiers of God.. stand, bow, and pray Stay steadfast in the fight pray daily and night even in the darkness, be blessed through God's light IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL through the shortcomings and the lengths THANK GOD FOR LIFE....HEALTH AND STRENGTH.
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear
Part 4 (Faith vs Sight) What are you looking at You can't see thee but he's forcing us to feel he. See what isn't there listen and see what your spirit must hear. Blind, no seeing eye dog or walking stick, can help you see this For the Spirit, the Son, the God is always in the Midst. You can't see thee but his presence isn't going anywhere. Catch the spirit and wave your hands like God is in your air You can't see thee but your faith acknowledges the Power of He IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL we must learn to "see" all three.
Matthew 9:2 And behold, the brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing teir faith, said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee. Matthew 9: 21-22 For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour
Part 3 (Faith vs Adversity) Adversity, curse to me society lied to you, lied to me; enslaved them, imprisoned he. We always worry about who did what and who lied FAITH VS ADVERSITY Try rising up after being spit upon and crucified. Try feeling dead but still living try being 90% broke but still 10% giving quit serving two masters cause one will have you sinning. Time to play the game are you willing to lose for the sake of winning. Time to play the game this is just the beginning You will never know the true friends, and true foes, Only God shows and Heaven only knows Jesus will help though, to ease the blow by blows. Faith vs Adversity are you willing to be convicted and tried
IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL of being found guilty and crucified There is no situation that will or should cause one to throw in the towel, and say the going got rough.. "I can do all things thru Christ.....and Ain't NO mountain High enough.
Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. (Part 2 Elimination Chamber) Faith vs money We Idolize, capitalize, but we never realize We socialize, victimize always criticize.... We homicide, we suicide always genocide All because of the "Almighty dollar" There is nothing created ever been greater than God. There's no price tag on this Give and it shall be given Covet money, the real blessings you miss. We rationalize, we biggie size, we never wanna down size We are victims of the wrong time of love, that's the real reason we never rise above. If the Love of money is the root of all evil, and society says money makes the world go 'round When walking talking salvation Ask of yourself Where are your feet found?
Timothy 1 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. (The Elimination Chamber) Part 1 Faith vs. Reason Faith says yes, reason says no, fight until reason says faith wins, and that's the bottom line cause God says so. Faith says yes you can reason says not today smack reason in the face and tell it, I only listen to what God has to say. Faith says yes, and you can do it reason says wait. Listen as reason gets defeated...in not a moment too late. IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL hang up on reason and give faith a call. "For faith walks 30 miles when reason only walks three" Belief in God....beats belief in reality.
From my Heart Part 5 Lord lift me up were I belong I hear the lyrics of the song, I speak to my fallen to hear what I'm doing wrong Lord I repent, However in the midst the devil trying to have me hell bent, I see family's, feuding over finances Corporations might as well sit at our tables for dinner. I'm a God spiritual professional, Yet corporation expendable, I'm a beginner. Is that the pot calling the kettle black or the Master's calling the slaves a sinner or the bosses saying you're a loser since I've got to be a winner. God help me, My heart aches when I see black families sleeping on couches cause of outside forces they can not control food on the table is being replaced by how much money one has in his bank roll It's like prison cells, silence felt like spending time in hole.
Lord lift me up were I belong I'm trying to be strong but most of our days are dictated by devilish ways I'm on my knees hear my praise. I'm repping my family in the midst I'm praying for my people who hold up two fists I'm sending a shout out to all the single mother's in the game For the brother's who are willing to give these mother's their last name. I can only now cry, fight, fall, but get up all for the real in me. Holla to the Lord, if you feelin' me. Cause it's my time, it's our time ...It's time to answer the call IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL. Don't send this to ten people to recieve a magical blessing in an hour Go tell ten people ...there's a supernatural being....who has all FULL POWER.
From My heart Part 4
Lets just live the life God has for us to live, Leave the worries and the stress behind. The devil is roaming about like a roaring lion...lying his way into our minds. There are many things that just aren't right in this world and it all brings tears to my eyes. God please silence the hurt and the cry Bless the soul of lost one's who lie Bless the women who for her children try Bless the brother who didn't have to die. And Bless all my people who IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL believe they can fly.
No need to pass this on to ten people to get a blessing, Simply tell ten people you are praying for them. Tell ten people you love them.....And for the ten people I saw left without a job last week .....The Lord will provide a better place. From My Heart Part 3 I'm sick of seeing my people getting corporately escorted out of the building Corporations are destroying us preventing us from building We can't go forward Because they stop our progress and are yielding As God is my witness I sit above a glass ceiling. $, outsourcing, does not make the world go round Reston, isn't the promise land So I'll be resting on different ground God.... the world is silent I'm listening for the sound.... of your voice.. When Hell's Henchmen come and get me I will rejoice Foreigners are buying and selling for $ and Gold
Judas resides in this place it feels similar to the Garden where Christ was sold... Corporate puppet No way Christ pulls my string Office of the President Heaven's no I represent the King of Kings Corporation downsizing Once large are now small God I'm employed by you IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL For the sake of family and children For any and all who bust their butt on the grind God has more in store for us, than whatâ€™s on their mind. I see you, I'm praying for you There are 24 hours in a day The first 8 should never be spent this way.
From My Heart Part 2 I.T.M.O.I.A. My heart hurts, when I think about the fallen I see them when I cry, and their names I'm callin It hurts to see single mothers left to raise em alone. Come on brother's My tears fall to all the women who've ever miscarried I give a shout to all who've every tried, thought of Succeeded or failed at being married. To my brother's on the grind who go home every night and look their children in the eye and say "I gotta support mind" For the real Bible believing, God fearing, family endearing one's Who IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL Donâ€™t sweat not having funds.
Imperfection abound I turn to God for solid ground. I can't say the devil made me do it He just offers us a seat on the flight We gotta realize the co-pilot is the thief in the night We gotta have belief in the fight cause the plight..... The devil gives men woman to dine on and alcohol to drink with porno shows. You can't cultivate and feed yourselves right using picks and "hoes" Just like you can't teach your son's to be men Putting their hair in corn rows. God so love the world he gave his only begotten son 99 problems.......living life to fullest shouldn't be one. I.T.M.O.I.A. (FROM THE HEART) PART 1 The world we live in is money driven should be enemy forgiven. The world we live in is cutthroat, and crass should be heartfelt and we should be free at last. I can do all things through Christ who strengtheneth me Yet the devil tries to use trickery to weaken thee. For God so love the world he gave his only begotten son. Yet in this world everybody kills to being number one. Fathers leave household for the sake of adultery Mothers left to take care of home, while children fall to hip-hop idolatry. all the while my people fall in status in society. Well I'm black and life is designed to be hard for me. But with the Lord at my side Thereâ€™s nothing a man can do We have to move every mountain Single mother's this goes for you too. The Lord is the light of my life Temptation and sin sometimes dim the flame....
But in any hour of humanity call on Jesus' name. Guns and drugs are crippling our society Yet JESUS ... STILL WALKS WITH ME. It's time to do the Lord's will Brothers do you know abuse kills Sista's do you know, when he leaves just be still. IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL THERE IS NO SITUATION THAT IS TOO BIG OR TOO SMALL PUT THEM CELL PHONES DOWN. GIVE GOD A CALL. From my Heart
23 Hrs of Struggle The One Hour That's Not Ever ask yourself, why me... Ask God not to let this cup pass before thee. Ever think here we go again? .... Does the cycle seem to have no end? Does every turn seem to be wrong? Every note seems to go to a different song. Do the pieces of your puzzle seem not to belong? Ever ask these questions in your quest... Well if so, just know this is not a test. It's a cold world and this is life A man will walk a mile for his wife, A woman will go 5 miles to protect her children from strife. Everything that has been experienced has already met its demise Every raindrop that has fallen, already formed in the skies, Every ounce of blood that's been spilled already heard cries And every accomplishment over struggle already cried tears in its eyes. Everything we see, experience, or taste today already happen yesterday....and it was overcome Everything we go through.....may God's will be done. IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL May your time be right now Give thanks for your time....instead of asking how..... For it's time for us to prosper...and thatâ€™s the bottom line, written in stone and in cement Bow your head say Lord My time I.S.N.O.W. Say amen and I am in agreement. "For those whose "Spirit of Faith" knows today is a NEW DAY"
John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, Verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God
Heaven hath no glory, like a man reborn" Reconnected, redirected re-erected... He said it, He did it Resurrected Repent, where thy have went For us His Son He Sent Rebirth, his worth He's coming back for the earth Realize, his prize Recognize to be reborn, one must be baptized Rehired Not retired, He Desired Us to be Holy Spirit Fired, Today is the day the Lord has made He sent his son for our sins to be Repaid
Time to get off this rock for sin has me trapped and locked, heart hardly beating the world has me in shock All around me and in me is sin I need to rid myself of the iniquity within. I hear the voice of God telling me how to win. It's the 4th quarter, the 3rd period, the bottom of the 9th and I literally have nothing left I hear the voices of angels telling me not to hold my breath I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH
they say keep walking Reverence God, cause the devil keeps stalking The people need your inspiration..so keep writing and talking These words hit hard...Lord hear me calling "What do I need to do..since it seems like I'm falling? His answer.... "One must endure all the pain and suffering Through humility, my strength will be buffering rain will come, and lightning will flash however I will not leave you nor forsake you, You don't even have to ask". I see a vision before me first I see loaves and fish on the shore After I eat I start to see more... I see a cup pouring blood HIS blood in the water I ask myself should I get in the voice in me tells me not to tarry or falter.... My body...dirty from sin I start to get in...I feel cleanse my eyes start to open their lens... My clothes filthy, tattered and torn cleanse by the Spirit body feels no longer worn As I begin to see the world different now, my soul no longer does it mourn. I leave this message in the sand HEAVEN HATH NO GLORY LIKE A MAN REBORN!!!!!
"Heaven hath no glory like a man reborn" (Part III "Confession and Belief) I remember as a young adult for a long time not praying, I also remember being older and asking God to forgive me for that period of time..... The book says we walk by faith and not by sight who said seeing is believing, I don't think they were really seeing so in their presence I'm leaving. society says tasting is proof, well I wanna taste and see the Lord is good and Jesus Christ is the living truth. To confess one's sins, one must show sincerity too believe in salvation one must show humility, For we must live to die but die to live, like we must receive God, yet our "lives" give. I've struggled many times, due to lapses in my belief I've seen many nights crying from earthly grief I've walk down many valley's, have witnessed many shadow's of death but my faith knows God, is my breath..... In trying to win, I met sin, fornicated with temptation, cause I let the devil's many mates in Some spoken for, other's made token's for yet many were broken for....they too need belief, I've cried many tears of humility "Will a man rob God?" yeah, I used to be that thief.
The body and blood I've washed in Lord I confess, forgive me of my sins, take me to a place were "new life begins" For we've all been there we all fall short of the glory of the Lord, But faith sees what we don't see So in the midst and even out the midst
We must believe in HE. For where you are right now, where I am right now, whether struggling or rejoicing, we make it because of our faith in the Most High, If you can't believe without seeing, bow your head and close your eye.
Luke 23:39-43 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, if thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation. And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward for our deeds:but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said to Jesus, Lord remember me when thous comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise. ..."Heaven hath no glory, like a man reborn" (Part II Repentance) I've lied... to save one who almost "died" Yet, In the midst of it all..I almost perished. Both lives now I even more cherish. It still haunts thoughts often times nightmarish. I stole, for one to become whole yet pieces of me...fell from my soul Only God was there to cajole, and wisdom stayed behind to console. Body felt divided into parts, they say only God knows your heart But if you have no order, he exposes you and uncovers you like art. See we paint the picture which should be according to the book, yet underneath the "mask" the truth everyone looks. Tormented I scream and shout I want the word, which will kick the devil out see opportunity doesn't knock....it's everywhere, yet if you "think outside the box" through the peep hole, temptation's only there.
What is Salvation without sin? it's going through life thinking you don't need Jesus to win, See when that metaphoric blood you shed is your own, you find yourself in that place ...opposite were paradise is shown. For you are literally killing yourself when you don't realize God has given you breath, You will bury yourself in the devil's workshop... and the wages of sin is death. Turn to those you "killed" and apologize, I must bandage my own wounds so God can silence my cries.. I must not dwell in un-Godly counsel or use hell's henchman as alibi's. To obtain "life"...one must repent from his thievery, "killings", and lies, The moral of this message, of this account, of this story.... I must be reborn if my house in Heaven is to have any Glory
Forgive me father for I have sinned. I utter these words from the iniquity within Not to prove a point or separate myself from the rest.... Heaven's no I write for In The Midst Of It All Your name I'll always confess. I've spent a time in Babylon Many and even myself thought I'd die As I praised you from being delivered back home I started to cry I spent days behind bars always praying "Lord remember me in paradise" If one looked to the left and right of the cross They saw me twice. My journey, laced with calamity, tragedy death all types of plight like Saul you sent me a vision "who held me and said everything will be alright" Yet, All the $ in the world can't make me win if the deck is stacked I see three 6's on the table But I hold an Ace who's got my back... My home away from home, away from home Sometimes is shaken at it roots the devil is spaded clubs take my heart away w/o diamonds she my stray Sin doesn't discriminate the suits. I'm trying to make this journey but I have holes in my boots I'm trying to make to NEW JERUS and take some wit me But if I fail as a leader we all lose. Comfort and kisses don't come easy For the Bible says even in one's homeland One will be persecuted... My house is fortified by faith Sometimes that even gutâ€™s intruded..... Impervious to pain Heavens no Cause sometimes with pleasure there's pain
Sometimes with sun there's rain If you aren't that seed that produces at least 30 fold Thereâ€™s no gain. What's the use of writing if the message can't be obtained? Forgive me father If this is hard to follow My heart hurts and life's antidote is a hard pill to swallow I need to wash it down with a cup of the Lamb's blood For my red sea isn't parted and I've been left in the midst of the great flood. Why go this route cause if I'm gonna teach, preach or reach, I too must expose and show how even My salvation can be breached. Sometimes I must dwell on rooftops fall and try to sustain My sun may shine for a season then comes the rain. For we all have sinned and fall short of the glory My pain, my struggle, Many can relate to the story.... I've been persecuted and there wasn't even a trail I've been walked on and adversaries have never even walked a mile... ....in my shoes If this was the "amazing race" we'd all lose. Some anguish I've caused some was never justified, If one's soul is interrupted Its personal suicide If it kicks down my door I'm on the wrong side of a homicide "Law and Order" SUV Without Jesus No law no order Just "Someone Under Violence and that could be you or me. Father forgive me For this I had to write even though the message might be clouded I'd hope to shed some light Without Jesus Salvation will never take flight Forgive me Father
Lead, guide, direct, and protect me in this fight...
Editor’s Note Rebirth: The beginning of your new beginning. It is impossible to return to the womb and be born a second time; But we have the God of the second chance. Life as we know, some aspects at least are designed for us to fail. If we however never fall without getting up; those little failures and believe me they are little, will turn into stepping stones for us to climb and conquer.
We are reborn, whether it’s in the natural or supernatural, it is a “start over” point. A new chance to grow, a new chance to learn and make changes. See we can fall one hundreds and never learn why we failed. However on that 101st time, If we decide to turn it over to God, and let him Lead, guide and direct us; that 101st try will turn into our first success and our new beginning.
In this world of sin, in this world of wrong doings and mistrials…In this world of lives tattered and torn, wardrobes either ripped or worn….Heaven truly hath no glory, than a man/woman reborn!!!!!!!!
