Thankful

Almighty Creator,
I am forever indebted to You.
I am because You are.
Apart from You there is no existence.
No words or acts of gratitude could ever
Repay You for all You’ve done.
The very breath that I take is because of You.
How could I not take time out to express my gratitude.
I take this time to dedicate my thanks
To You, Almighty Creator.
Thanks for granting direction in my life.
Thanks for giving my life meaning.
Thanks for Your fortress of protection.
Thanks for my identity that lies in You.
Thanks for being a light unto feet.
Thanks for the Wonderful Shepherd that You are.
Thanks for being my Abba Father.
One I could always call on.
My heart is filled with reasons to thank you.
But yet, a million reasons could never compare
To all You’ve done, is doing, and will do.
Although this is true, I still take this time
To Thank You with all my heart.

God’s Promises to us, His dear children

This morning I woke up with this one thought in mind ~ God’s promises to us. He is such a loving and faithful God. He walks with us and commune with us even when we are not always aware of it. He’s so faithful. I’m stuck on faithful here because He is that to me and countless of us. His promises still stands. As I read His word I am reminded of the great things He has done, is doing now and will continue to do for us. I love the word “US.” I say this because I believe if I’m going through something you may be going through something also. When I pray for my family and all that pertains to me ~ You are included and that’s because You matter. God is Faithful and He will remain Faithful beyond eternity. He’s the one that carries us when we can’t carry ourselves. His plan for us is that we prosper and be in good health even as our soul prospers. When I look up at the heavens and see a Rainbow I am forever reminded of His great love towards me and all His promises spoken in His Words. It revives my inner being and I move forward with great stride because He rejuvenates me continually. Believe it or not He does the same for you. He is always there whether you acknowledge Him or not. He loves you with an Everlasting Love ❤ He is not man that He should lie. Put your confidence in Him Always, He will see you through anything that may come your way. He refers to “US” as His dear children. We are heirs of Christ. We have an inheritance because of Him being our Father ~ ABBA………… ❤ You are not alone. Keep dreaming and executing the precious things that is on your heart. Those things that would please Him and your family is worth achieving. Let your light so shine, do not relent in this time that we’re living in. Your continuous movement might just be what someone else may need to see for them to do the same. May the peace and love of God reside in your hearts, your home and in your community in Jesus Name Amen!!!!!

Amazed

I am amazed at how we could all
Look up at the open skies and see
Something different from each other.
In response to, ‘What do you see? ‘
No answer given would be wrong.
Perception is a way of understanding,
Or interpreting something.
It is a mental impression.
With this said, we ought
To see and accept each other
In spite of our differences.
You Say Potato, I Say Patato
You Say Tomato, I say Tamato
Neither way is wrong.
I’m amazed and I welcome
The experience of another’s mind.
I’m amazed how we view
The color purple
And yet refer to it differently.
God is truly a God of diversity.
I am in awe of His magnificence.
Amazed…

God of Diversity

God created the sun, moon, and stars.
He created the universe and all that’s in it.
When He created man, he thought of woman.
Humanity He created in splendid wonder.
He also created the rainbow with its vibrant colors.
When He spoke Words, they became tangible.
When He thought of sounds, He created music.
We would never be able to phantom the Magnificence
of Our Creator.
He is truly a God of Diversity.
How are we able to go on and not see
the true intent of the Almighty.
He is a God of Oneness.
When I think about God’s Divinity and Diversity
I can’t help but look up and recognize…

Dreams

At the wee hours of the night
While in deep slumber,
The mind, heart, and emotion meets.
They meet to construct a…
Dream…
One that would elevate the dreamer.
Their partnership is ideal,
For they know what’s needed.
Dreams…
They know exactly what would cause
all walls of defense to fall.
Most times dreams come to bring answers.
Sometimes they bring hope to defeat despair.
Dreams…
Wake up dormant aspirations.
They know the dreamer better
Than the dreamer knows him or herself.
It’s amazing how one dream could be
All it takes for great determination
To reveal itself.


Dreams…
Come as a tool to help move the unmovable
Or one reluctant to move.
Dreams…
Could come from any filter
So moving with some discretion is imperative.
Praying about it and feeling God’s peace
Is permission to move forward.
Determining its purpose is vital.
Knowing and understanding its impact
Comes with analyzing the whole picture.
Dreams…
Are the blueprint of what
Must be worked on and become a reality.
Dreams are one of many ways God speaks to us.

“Accept – then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it.”

Happy Father’s Day

You ought to be celebrated every day.
You deserve all glory and honor.
So great a model you are.
Day in and day out you take care of your own.
As birds of the air are taken care of, 
So are we, you’re children.
Happy Father’s Day, Dad.
I take this time to stop and bring recognition
Of who you are.
You are great, you are amazing.
As I am the apple of your eyes so are you to me.
I stand in awe of you.
