Ready For Battle?

Suit of Armor

A war

Rages roundbout,

Tis tween good and evil.

Saints, are you suited up to fight

The war?

Are you wearing the Armor of God?

Is every piece in place?

Are you standing

For Him?

Speaking Alphabetically

World map created from alphabet letters

A slip of the tongue

Brings heartache if

Careless words are spoken and

Damage can be done to a tender heart.

Even if you apologize and ask

Forgiveness theres no

Getting the words back once they’re spoken.

Honestly, words can be like arrows that

Inflict pain if they are

Judging words, but if they are

Kind words, spoken in

Love with true

Meaning and compassion behind them,

Not only will they do good, but they might

Open the door to end someone’s

Pain, or help someone

Quit a bad habit.

Remember to think before you

Speak, and

Try to always choose

Uplifting words that will bring

Victory into someone’s life, for

Words are powerful!

X-ray each one for harmful effects before

You speak it, for we all need to be

Zealous to make sure our words are good.

My Future

park pathway
The Lord has future plans for me that are good.
I trust in Him, for I know He will act.
He has plans that are exact.

He will give me an abundant life.
I do not have to worry,
or be in a hurry.

He will provide for me,
As He provides for the birds of the air.
I can depend on His care.

Therefore, I will delight myself in Him,
and trust in Him, for He does guarantee
the desires of my heart He’ll give to me.

As I trust Him and acknowledge Him,
He will direct my paths and make them straight,
And they’ll lead me right to Heaven’s gate.

My eye, nor ear, nor heart, cannot even imagine
what He has prepared for me,
Here on earth and in the Heavenly.

I have faith that He will reward me as I seek Him,
and love Him with all my heart, mind and soul.
That is my future, that is my goal.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (Psalm 23:6)

A Tribute to Billy Graham

Billy Graham

After a long time

As a good and faithful servant

His Lord said “Well done”

Senryu

Written I honor of Billy Graham’s entrance into the joy of his Lord today at the age of 99.

His lord said unto him,

Well done, good and faithful servant;

thou hast been faithful over a few things,

I will make thee ruler over many things:

enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Matthew 25:21

A Future and A Hope

Jeremiah 29:11
@SGLYMinistry 2017 http://www.smilegodlovesyou.org/sglystore.html

A spirit of hope,

Leads to a door of the future.

Prosperity waits,

In accordance with Him,

And His plans for me.

His word declares it so.

I sall not be harmed,

For His plans are for good,

For me forever and ever.

Choka

Based on Jeremiah 29:11
