Prayer for inspiration

God of everything good;
We pray to you this day;
That you give us inspiration;
To live a virtuous life;
Inspire us loving God,
To put you first
In all that we do;
And to live this day
According to your will;
Inspire us, heavenly Father,
To love you as we should,
With all our hearts;
To know you;
To be faithful to you,
And to be obedient to you.
We pray you, O Father Lord,
To inspire us
To love one another,
As you love us;
To care for one another,
As you keep caring for us;
We pray O Lord,
That you inspire us
To be dedicated workers
In your vineyard;
We pray that you inspire us
To hearken to your voice
When you call;
Listen to our supplication
And grant our wish;
May the Holy Spirit come
Down into our hearts,
And inspire us;
May your name be glorified;
For ever and ever, Amen!

You are the final O Lord

When you say yes O Lord,
No one can say no.
I am still to see
Who can counter your decision;
Your word is final;
Your yes is your yes;
An unchangeable decree
From your heavenly kingdom;
The Devil is a liar,
A specialist in deceit
And failure;
Who labours in vain;
Day and night, he labours;
But for nothing;
No matter how hard he tries,
He always fails like Goliath,
To pull down the young David
Who put his trust in you;
He goes home empty handed
From all his hunting expeditions;
You stand strongly by them
Who rely on you;
Who are faithful to you;
Who are loyal to you;
Who surrender their lives
To you;
Those who depend fully on you,
Make a wise choice;
They are safe – divinely protected;
That is why I depend on you;
I rely on you;
I count on you;
Let the whole world see O Lord,
That all those who put their trust in you do laugh.
That they do laugh and loudly;
They do laugh from jaw to jaw.
You are the final, O Lord.

My faithful friends

Faithful friends I have;
I love my faithful friends;
For they are the ones
I so much value;
Who keep me going,
All year long;
In darkness and in light;
When I am happy
And when I,in sadness swim;
I can’t say
What I would have been
Without them.
They are my treasure,
They are my gold;
I count on them for much;
And they never fail me;
Even when the going is hard,
They are there for me;
Fidelity, the stock in trade
Above everything else.
Sweet lovely friends;
So much I love my faithful friends.
My heart will always
Go for you.

Our Faith is Being Tested

The brisk wind stirs my mind, and I ponder our current events. Shelves are empty in the stores, and a virus plagues us. Quarantined from life, it seems it’s against our nature not to roam freely with our adventuresome instincts. My excitement usually comes in the early light, but boredom sets in now as it rains throughout the day.

Are today’s trials set in place by God’s admission or schemed by Satan? Everyone has their hands tied, and the world has come to a screeching halt. No God in heaven would wish this on His chosen people… or would He? Perhaps He is telling us to take a stand. Our faith is being tested!

In the biblical scriptures of Matthew 24:6-8, Jesus speaks of the End Times events as “birth pains.” Besides food shortages and economic collapse, He also spoke of viruses and locust infestations. Throughout the Bible, God sent plagues and pestilence to deal with his own people.

Medical science has proven the coronavirus natural host is bats, and the Chinese consume them in the form of soup. Did you know the Bible labels bats as forbidden meat? China detests Christianity and persecutes believers in their country. It is undoubtedly interesting COVID-19 figures today show that over 21 million Chinese have died from this virus. Is this a message from God? It is probable He is putting you on alert.

You may ask why a loving God would allow the death of His children from a pandemic. This is a wake-up call for those who refuse to repent their sins or surrender to Christ as their Lord and Savior. After all, history repeats itself.

All the wealth and knowledge of mankind will not stop our Lord’s intentions. Are you concerned for your safety? Staying home helps… or does it? Yes, it can UNLESS it is God’s will for this to happen. I cannot affirm the coronavirus positively is such a plague, but be aware of the signs. What I write for you today may shed light on the secrets of the future.

The Lord is watching and preparing our new home. Life, at this moment, mirrors biblical prophecy, and our faith is being tested. Trying to make sense of an incomparable condition is better left to those chosen scholars of God.

Should you fear the ultimatum, or should you remain faithful? This disease is a test of our personal faith in Jesus Christ. Let Him be your refuge for peace and comfort. It is so essential in these times you pray for His protection, study the Bible, and ask for healing.

“If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

A final thought –  a man recently delivered some lumber to my home, and he had a profound point of view on faith that I need to share with you. He said, “You can’t line dance to gospel music.” Thanks, Ira! Great perspective! Stay in faith, everyone… you’re being tested!

Isn’t It Time for Some Good News?

I open Google and social media each day, and the negative news floods the pages. People are murdering the innocent with fortitude, a grim reminder Satan still walks the earth. Those with the gold try to pass absurd laws for citizens to follow while they release the guilty to commit more crimes. Lines are drawn in the dirt as men of power speak lies. We, the meek, are artists left to draw our own conclusions. Today, I sit outside in the rain to witness God’s tears of sadness as I pray for those who desperately need His help. But every now and again, we might glimpse His holy goodness.

So, isn’t it time for some good news? God is coming soon to save the faithful and who believe He is the great healer of all our pain. Prophecy promises He will honor those who uphold His holy name.

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” Revelation 21:4 NIV

Let’s make hope the new headlines! The brown lawns will soon resonate to a gorgeous green, and budding plants will regain their strength. Even in times of disaster, we can witness God showing His power, and mankind, together, fights off evil as one. Many non-believers, especially overseas, have found the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Isn’t this a joy to share with others? Let us join hands in solidarity and honor God, for He will be the successor! Spread the hope of salvation to everyone!

Today, I challenge every man, woman, and child to become a leader for God. Sweep away the dead foliage of yesterday, and salt the icy bricks so we can climb the steps to heaven’s gates. Let your Christian faith shine through in every aspect of your life! Make positive changes that reflect God’s love and spread His good news.

“A cheerful heart is a good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” Proverbs 17:22 NIV

Memorize scriptures with a strong heart and an encouraging message. It will improve your relationships, health, and happiness. Learn new ways to replace the old negative ones. Pray for the Lord to show you the way for He is in total control of your life.

Yes! YOU will be the good news this world is so desperate to find! Faith unto us has great continuity.

“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Romans 12:2  NIV

God bless you, my friends!

Faithful friends

I do really admire you
My faithful friends;
You are the kind of friends
Everybody needs;
But, unfortunately,
You are so scarce
To find;
What we mostly find
Are unfaithful friends;
Fake friends;
Who will be with you,
When the going is good
For you,
And part ways
When the going is bad
For you.
Call them fake friends;
For indeed,
That is what they are;
Friends
Who cannot be trusted;
Friends
Who cannot be counted on;
Friends
Who cannot stand for you
In light and in darkness;
When the rain is pouring
As when the sun is shining;
You have proven your fidelity, faithful friends;
I love you, faithful friends;
You are, to me, great souls;
Being what many cannot be,
You are great souls;
The blessings of fidelity
Await you.
Oh! my great, faithful friends!
