God has been good to me; there is so much I am in God’s debt to tell.
At a point in my life when I was lost, He snatched my soul from hell.
My testimonies are incalculable I was broken down and felt all alone.
Hang out with me as I bear witness now; and pardon me if I rattle on.
My existence, as yours has lots of layers; it might take me some time.
Jesus is my redeemer and sanctuary; in Him, victory is always mine.
Mysterious clouds enclosed me; God watched as He sat on His throne.
He forgave me and keeps me well protected; pardon me if I rattle on.
Some days my life is a hot bath; other days, a freezing harsh shower.
Despite the hour or the mess; God soothes me with His spirit’s power.
It is hard to think on past days; I have done a great deal that is wrong.
Though when I think of God’s compassion; I can’t help but to rattle on.
The Holy Spirit is here at present, as I pen these expressions of praise.
Many thanks I must present my father; He loves me despite my ways.
God has kept me all these years; He will keep until He calls me home.
New mercies offer me a chance to get it right; pardon me if I rattle on.
If not for that cross Jesus bore; I could not atone for my manifold sins.
Thank God for Jesus and salvation; I am glad I invited Him to come in.
My thankfulness is continuous; I promise this poem won’t be that long.
I give you the words God lends to my spirit; so, pardon me if I rattle on.

Dreams and compromise do not go together. You must drop one for another. If a dream is God-inspired,compromise must not be toyed with, for it to come to pass. Read Genesis 37:2…”And Joseph brought unto his father their evil report….
He did not partake of their evil schemes and actions. This attracted his father’s favor n gave him a coat of many colours. God also gave Joseph a dream.
His brothers succeeded in stripping off the coat of many colours but they could not strip him of his dream. One was man-made; the other was God-made.
I declare prophetically today, whoever thought you are finished cause they stripped you naked, you are rising again cause you carry God given dream which must come to pass…stand strong!!!
HOW CAN YOU
How can you stand der, criticizin’ dat man’s praise?
He da one cried all dem nights; prayed all dem days.
My brother, how can you stand to live wit yo’self;
Not praisin’ God; and beatin’ down someone else?
How can you spout that mess off to one as blessed as I?
Talkin’ ‘bout my brother and walk innocently on by?
You know you been blessed much longer than many.
You was a old man when I was no more than twenty.
Been comin’ to dis here church; jus’ takin’ up space,
You must not be plannin’ on seein’ our Savior’s face.
All dem years o’ livin’ to you been graciously given.
Tell me, you ever thank God for da blessing o’ livin’?
I know jus’ where I been and who brought me through.
I’mma sho’ give my God praise; don’t know ‘bout you.
Jus’ tell me how can you stand der laughin’ at another?
Talkin’ ‘bout you a Christian; talkin’ ‘bout yo’ brother.
Yo’ mama taught you better; but you keep up dat talk.
you don’t feel guilt; de’s somethin’ wrong wit yo’ walk.
All I’m gon’ say to you on this vicious important issue,
I hope you got enough sense to beg God to forgive you.

HEAVEN is my Home and JESUS sits on The THRONE, and that story will never change. Tell yourself some more, that I may have mistakes, faults and sins, but they’re not going where I’m going, in this life, or the next. Selah . And tell yourself, I am not my mistake, I am not by fault, and I am not owned by sin. No, I am who GOD says I am, an overcomer, who is more than a conqueror. Yes, you and I are more than the things that conquer many, such as sin and the judgement of sin, mistakes and faults, Selah. Yes, I have a ROCK, that is higher than I. And therefore you ought to Be Encouraged, and STAY ENCOURAGED, tis all, and Carry On. #graced.life. one love
So the thing about being a Christian is simple. We are NOT perfect. I struggle more than I’d like with my walk as do many professing Christians . Do we like our sins? NO. Do we know what they are? Most of the time.
Sometimes there are layers to our problems that have to be stripped away one piece at a time. This often happens as we deepen our walk with God. He brings light to the darkness of our past and the troubles that weigh us down. When we know what we struggle with, God will help us to figure out our triggers and how to overcome them.
Christianity has become a word some cringe at the mention of it. There are some who do not want to openly admit their faith for fear of persecution from others. The Lord says if you deny Him, He will deny you at the time of judgement.
We (Christians) need to gird our loins and take up our mantles in the name of our Lord and Savior. Now, more than ever, we need to pull our resources together and work as one to become more than society has deemed us. We need to prove that we, and God through our actions, are not the hypocritical and judgemental people we have been portrayed as in past.
Rise up Christian soldiers and show God’s love and truth.
