Dignity is respect

Everyone deserves.

Stand against evil.

Human trafficking profits

From destroying people’s freedom

Above

Jar with James 1:17 scripture

Treasures abound.

Many gifts are waiting

In my Father’s house.

Only good and perfect gifts

Are waiting to be found.

Tanka

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17 KJV

Power Outage

Power cord in outlet with light bulb

As darkness creeps in,

Fear raises its ugly head.

Silence prevails.

I pray for a solution.

Suddenly light fills the room!

Tanka

The power went out this evening all over town. No one seemed to know what caused the widespread outage.

It was near supper time and getting close to sunset. Darkness was slowly coming upon us and hunger was also. The silence was deafening in my home as I’d become accustomed to hearing the sound of the refrigerator, computer and hum of other appliances. Time passed slowly. I wondered how much longer we all would be without the conveniences electricity brings. I tried not to use my phone in order to save the battery since I didn’t know when I’d be able to charge it again. I prayed whatever happened would get repaired soon.

And then, after waiting an hour and a half the lights came back on! What a welcoming sight! It’s amazing how dependent we’ve become on electricity isn’t it?

Eternity

Millions of lost souls

Afore eternity’s gates

Hearing the good news.

Blinded eyes see the Son, as

Tongues share the gospel.

Tanka

whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

2 Corinthians 4:4 NKJV

For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost. Matthew 18:11 NKJV
