Journey Home

This world has been good to me

I’ve enjoyed friends and family

I have tried to live God’s plan for me

As I take this journey home


For I know this life is just a test

To see what I’ll do if I am blessed

Will I share with others or just rest

As I take this journey home


There is one choice I must make

If I want to always live by grace

I must accept the price He paid

When He died at Calvary


That one choice must be for Him

Because it tells my journey’s end

Well it be joy in Heaven’s realm

Or forever stay in hell

I’m Outa Here

Discharge today
Yippee – Kai- Yay
I’m as happy as a
Cow with new hay
Discharge today
Toodle – De – Doo
I have a few things
To share with you
He’s my healer
Plain and simple
He’s the one
Who did it all
Gave the knowledge
To the doctors
Of things both
Great and small
He brought this team
Bands of doctors
Nurses too
They administered
The treatment
From the wisdom
God issued
It’s His mercy and grace
I relied on
His mercy and grace
Saw me through
He guided your
Every prayer
And answered them
Through and through
Lord, I thank you
For watching over me
Every moment of every day
You are my healer
You’ll restore me
I give you all of my praise

Survival Guide

Let’s face it, life is difficult

We struggle just to live

Sometimes the trials get so hard

We wonder when we’ll quit


But This in only true

If we have not yielded control

To the God who owns the universe

He can satisfy our souls


If He’s the center of our lives

Then He will pour out grace

Mercy follows close behind

And then His joy and peace


Faith comes rushing into us

Hope is center stage

Healing and deliverance

Are with us every day


So if you’re having problems

And struggling to survive

Just put your trust in Gd above

And never be deprived

Triumph in Trials

I sit here in the hospital

And my thoughts go out to those

Who question why they’d be in such a place

And I can’t help but realize

That many of us choose

To think that these things come through lack of faith


I will beg to differ though

When trials and tests do come

That lack of faith is not the cause at all

I have a loving Father

Who knows His plan for me

At every turn I’m asked to hear His call


I know beyond a doubt He has a plan for me

And I know His plan is always for my good

So if He’s decided I should go through cancer in my life

Then I know He’s the one who’ll see me through


You might ask why a loving God would bring this upon me

How can good come out of something that can kill

Well let me take a moment to tell you what He’s done

In this short time while He has kept me still


Prayers have been answered all over the world

From friends I have both here and overseas

Building up their faith for battles that will come

Battles that by prayer will see defeat


The poems I have written have reached around the globe

Thousands upon thousands have been touched

This ministry is growing to edify the church

It witnesses of His great love for us


The testimony that this trial will one day give to me

I will share with everyone I know

Because of His great mercy, that spared me from the worst

TI can shout that He has carried be right through


And last is the fact that healing will come

And the glory will all go to Him

And others will be lifted up in their faith

And our enemy will never win


So sing out His praises when trial arise

Lift up His name and look to the skies

Your redeemer will help you and faith He’ll supply

As you rest in His loving arms

The Lukewarm Fence


I made a decision

A long time ago

To accept Jesus as my Lord

I know heaven will be my home


There are others who choose

To ignore God’s  call

They have rejected the Lord

And to hell they will fall


But the bible says many

Will decide not to choose

They will always remain lukewarm

Those many who take

This stance in life

Really need to be warned


You cannot have one foot in heaven

From hell there is one sure defense

You must come to Jesus with all ofm your heart

And get off of that lukewarm fence




Written in response to the Daily Prompt Fence

Life Renewed

I can see it in your eyes

I can hear it in your voice

You have heard the Savors call

You have finally made the choice


There are so many things

That will now come about

Your life will be different

There is not any doubt


He’ll first give you peace

More than you’ve ever known

It will fill up your soul

And then it will grow


Next is the awesome joy

That comes up out of your heart

It is so much more than the happiness

This world can barely impart


Then there’s the hope of tomorrow

Knowing His plans are all good

And our heavenly home awaits us

That is clearly understood


You then start to see His mercy

Intervening in trials and tests

You realize He’s there with you

And He never, ever rests


Then His grace becomes part of us

And we gain the desire to forgive

And our heart reaches out to the lost

As we beg them to be saved and live


Finally His love rises deep from within

A love greater than man ever knew

It compels us to reach out to all that we know

And try to give them life renewed


The radical change that takes place

When we make Jesus our Lord

Is only a starting point in our lives

A time to give others that choice.

One More Thing

All throughout time

God’s sovereign grace

Has kept us close

To His dear face


He gives us blessings


And show us how

Pour friends to serve


He pampers us

With peace and joy

And many other

Gifts employs


But with all this grace

There’s one more thing

That must be trusted

If we’re to win


Because future lies

In prophecy

And Only comes

By His mercy




Prophecy In response to the daily prompt




God Covered It

God formed man from dust
Breathed life into him
And when he chose to disobey
God covered it
God asked Abram to obey
By giving his own Son
When God saw he’d follow through
God covered it
David had Uriah killed
Just to take His wife
When Nathan pointed out his sin
God covered it
Man has sinned throughout time
He prefers to disobey
But when his cry goes out to God
God covers it
Finally God saw that man
Would never get it right
So He set His plan in motion
A covering for all time
Because God So loved to world
He sent His only son
To die upon across
To cover all my wrong
So now when I do wrong
And disobey His law
I look up to that cross
And God covers it all

A word to my friends

I know that I have been kind of quiet lately. As some of you know I am undergoing cancer treatments. I had a stem cell transplant on the 13th in the last 4 days have been a little difficult.

However I am glad to say thank God has been very merciful to me and I am on the mend. They’re telling me right now that I should be going home either Tuesday or Wednesday next week. I praise God for his healing power and his great love for me.

I want to thank those of you I have been praying for me. There is nothing more powerful and be assured that your prayers have been answered. I look forward to rejoining the blogging community soon.  It’s a place I have found great comfort in during this time

I Stand Amazed

There are many thing in earth

That take my breath away

Every day I can observe

The marvels  that come my way


From the brilliant sun at dawn

To the colors of sun set

The birds melodious song

And the flowers powerful scent


Then I think about my body

And the way it’s carefully made

There is no other copy

Unique in all it’s ways


All these things bring wonder

To my big imagination

I marvel as I ponder

The vastness of creation


It’s awesome, Oh, so awesome

That God would care so much

To give us this great earth

So He could stay in touch


But even more than awesome

Is the love He has for me

That He would give His son

To take my sin from me


So now I stand amazed

At all that He has done

But I truly am in awe

Of His abiding love
