Love Is Tricky – Poem


Love isn’t just an emotion

Or even a magic potion

God designed it with a purpose

He provides a surplus

When you are all alone

You can feel Him in your bones

Your eyes can not see

But in the Trinity there is three

Why do we not trust

Broken down with rust

Bent out of shape

Pieced together with tape

Lord we hurt so much

We long for Your touch

Shine your light upon us

Help me not to cuss

So many thoughts trapped inside

How come I can’t find a bride

I want to feel complete

I want someone sweet

To have and to hold

Before I get too old

Show me your plan

Teach me to be a fisherman

Not just for someone for me

But also to help others see

That Your plan is better

For You I write this letter

Help me to love

Help me to find truelove

I am willing to trust my life to You

Make my dark skies turn blue

With Christ I can overcome

Help me to become

The person you made me to be

Together let’s agree

That alone I will fail

But with You I can sail

No longer left all alone

Because you have shown

Me how to love and expect nothing

Your love is very touching

With You I am made whole

I have finally found my self-control

Bring me someone special

I promise to be careful

Love them like You have loved me

Together we will cross the sea

Whatever it takes

No matter how high the stakes

We will give you the glory

And that is my story…

No More Tears Of Sorrow – Poem


Have you ever felt battered?

Have you ever felt tattered?

Have you ever felt scattered?

Like nothing really mattered?

Pushed to the edge

Forced to recite a pledge

Yet not understanding

How am I even still standing

How can I get out

Trying to scream and shout

No voice comes out

Feeling nothing but doubt

Flooding to capacity

Can you believe the audacity

Who can I tell

That I am living in hell

Burning with emotion

Like a raging ocean

But all you see is

Nothing but bubbles & fizz

There is more than you know

Can you see the plateau

Things continue to come up

Life is full of buildup

One thing after another

Have you told your brother

Keeping it all in

Is like trying to hide sin

It continues to boil

Until it smells spoiled

Rotten, stinking like day old fish

Whatever happened to my wish

The truth is the devil is a liar

He tries to make you walk the wire

High above the world with nothing below

To soften the blow

As he tries to repeatedly knock you down

Turning your smile into a frown

He knows how to push your buttons

Until all of a sudden

You fall off the wire

Into his well kept fire

He loved when you would admire

Yourself, & change your attire

Until it was all about you

No God No friends just little old you

Separated we will surely fail

No one there to post bail

But yet there was one

Everyone called Him the Son

A man who came into this world as a baby

Will you accept Him, well maybe

Why are you not sure

Didn’t you read the brochure

Jesus died for the lost

To pay the cost

That no one could

Because who else would

Give up their life for what

There is no other shortcut

There is only one way to Heaven

Even though false preachers make up 7

Do you know the truth

It is sweeter than a Baby Ruth

God’s plan to save all mankind

You just have to open your mind

Read the gospel and receive His word

Now you can never say you never heard

I try my best

To share this treasure chest

My hope is in the Lord

It is time to get onboard

Make the decision and let Him reign

Let Him remove all the pain

No more tears of sorrow

He holds tomorrow

If this wasn’t true

Then I would have blew

My brains out long ago

None of this is show

One day I sat on my bed

Wishing I was dead

I had the gun

Was ready for it to be done

But God did stop me

He opened my eyes to see

That suicide was just an excuse

That I shouldn’t choose

He had more for me to do

And today I know this is true

Nothing in life is easy

I pray my poem did not make you wheezy

Nothing more true than salvation

That is available for every tribe & nation

God I pray You continue to use me

Use me to share Thee

With You Lord we can overcome

All these feelings of being numb

Every day is a gift

Hold my hand so I never drift

Keep me in Your will

Until the day You come to fill

The prophecies have been told

Help me to remain bold

Why I Dumped Tupac – Testimony


Let me explain how this topic came about. Without using any names, “a minister of the gospel” posted a picture of Tupac with something he said on it. I felt led to confront her about the post and how she is all over the board with what she posts from scriptures, to suggestive sexual pictures, to posts that have no purpose. In doing so, someone else responded and said they like Tupac because he spoke truth.

Now let me share my background before I dig any deeper. I grew up in California or as we like to call it – Cali. I went to a school in San Diego that had Bloods and Crypts. I witnessed people getting “jumped into” a gang outside the school grounds. I loved Tupac’s music and bought every album that came out and even the underground and never before released albums after his death. I could sing every song, every curse word, and I could even do the moves from his music videos, so yes you can say I enjoyed his music very much.

One day God convicted me of what I was listening to. I felt God press upon my spirit, how can you listen to music that incites anger and hostility? How could you support music that speaks down to woman like they are nothing and disrespects them constantly? I tried to reason with God and say but I like the beat.

James 1:26 If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless.

How many times when God points out a sin in our lives do we try and reason with God and bend His rules? His rules are set in place to help us see and understand the necessary boundaries for our lives, to help us grow, to help us learn how to be more like Christ. I had failed at being a Christian, could I really call myself a Christian and listen to such filthe?

Revelation 3:15-16 I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.

I share my past and my own personal conviction to help expose the fact that God wants better for us. How can I speak such vile words and then turn around and praise God with the same lips? It doesn’t work that way, I am only deceiving myself. So let us be true to ourselves and examine our own hearts. Are you listening to 50 cent, 2 chainz, Drake, Lil Wayne, etc (and yes I had to look up these names because I left that scene a long time ago)?

Over the years God continues to show me the errors in my ways, the Holy Spirit convicts me, and opens my eyes to the changes that I need to make. If you have taken the time to read this please pause and examine your own walk with God and the music you listen to. I can’t make the decision for you, but if you ask God if the music you listen to is good or bad, He will let you know.

So for the young lady that helped inspire me to share my past tonight, thank you. I know you didn’t want to hear me say we shouldn’t support Tupac because you feel his words are truth, but the reality is that the only real truth we have in life is the word of God. When man speaks “truth”, he is merely sharing his thoughts, feelings, and emotions but it has no weight on helping us be saved. Jesus Christ died on a cross so that we could be freed from our sins and have a new life. Remaining trapped by listening to explicit music is like telling Jesus I don’t care that you sacrificed your life for me. Do not deny the Lord your God.

Matthew 10:32-33 So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.

I pray that the testimony of my past has helped you to reexamine your walk with God. Every day is a struggle against evil and we can overcome evil because of the saving grace of Jesus. Don’t remain stuck in your sin because you don’t want to give up what you like. That is your flesh talking and your fleshly desires will only lead you down the wrong path.

Give it all to God and let God work mightily in your life today❗️

Destruction Today But The King Is Soon Coming – Poem


Attacks are all around us

Nobody wants to discuss

Why some are killing

Because others are not willing

How many must die

For you to open an eye

What if it came to your doorstep

Would you just sidestep

The world Is dark & gloomy

It used to be really roomy

Population continues to grow

With no signs of slow

But what will tomorrow hold

If today you are not bold

Will disasters become the new norm

Because we didn’t want to face the storm

Maybe my words are just lost

Because you don’t want to pay the cost

Your time is too precious to you

My words cut when they are true

How many bombs will it take

For you to wake up & partake

The world can’t be changed by just one

Unless that one is God’s only Son

But today He is not here

He chose to disappear

He said He shall return again

Those words have been penned

But how would you know

If you never take the time to grow

I love to share Bible verses

But you are still stuck on the curses

Words that tarnish the heart & soul

Because today everyone is a troll

Attacking those who speak truth

Because they never left the ways of their youth

Lord, I cry out to You

We need You to pull us through

My heart is heavy

Ready to break like a levee

Filled to the max with sorrow

Because there might not be a tomorrow

Jesus today I call upon Your name

Without You we are filled with shame

You healed the lame

Took all my blame

But today I need more

Today I need You to pour

Let the Holy Spirit fall like rain

Let nothing we do be done in vain

Give us strength to maintain

Your blood washed away our stains

Lead us not into temptation

You are our strong foundation

God break down all these walls

Let the Spirit flow like Niagara Falls

Time is running out

We need You to knockout

The rest of this sin

Flex on evil & show them who wins❗️

Will You Stand Up For The Truth? – Poem

Will you stand up for the truth

Are you lost like the youth

When people attack

Do you want to hit back

Has life

Brought you nothing but strife

Are you ready to give up

Because of a breakup

This world can be cold

But when will you be bold

Will you be a witness before the judge

Or will you try to fudge

The rules

Like you did back in school

Nobody wants to take the blame

They would rather hide in their shame

Turn their backs

And cover their tracks

What happened to the righteous few

Who always knew

Whether to stand true

Or pass on through

You see, people don’t care

But they will complain “that’s not fair”

They will look at you with a blank stare

And complain about what you wear

Like that really matters anymore

Last night you slept on the floor

They don’t want to hear you are sore

Just complain about how loud you snore

Why can’t you get it right

I don’t have time to fight

No one left to give a kiss goodnight

All alone and full of fright

We need soldiers who are ready for battle

Who are not afraid of a rattle

The serpent has laid his trap

Many have fallen between the gap

The Church has lost their purpose today

Constantly trying to find a better way

To keep people that walk in the door

But who is really keeping the score

The bigger the building means what

Come inside and enjoy this donut

We want you to be comfortable here

Please don’t disappear

Do you have any friends to bring

5, now that is a beautiful ring

My ears can count the people

Listening to footsteps of the townspeople

1, 2, 3, four

They keep walking in the door

Is there really more to this process

Or are we just trying to get your adddress

Give us all your information

Invite in every nation

Fill you up like a gas station

And tell you about God’s creation

Can we do more

To fight this war

Christians are under attack

Should we fallback

Lay down on our backs

Pretend that the fake news is whack

Or maybe it is time to jump back

Get the Church back on track

Realize that the devil has been brewing

Using sin to continue wooing

The fleshly desires of man

This has always been his plan

Read your Bible and comprehend

That sin is not your friend

A sneaky snake tried to pretend

That a forbidden fruit would not offend

Never test the wrath of God

Mankind has since been flawed

In need of a Savior

Because of our behavior

Jesus took the weight of the cross

To cast our sins across

From as far as the East is to the West

Jesus gave you His best

Died and laid in a tomb

It must have been dark like your mother’s womb

Waiting for God to raise Him

The disciplines felt grim

But my Jesus could not be bound

He rose out of the grave and was crowned

Today we wait for His return

All of this you must learn

Time is short like a candle that has been lit

Eventually you will have to admit

When Jesus returns in all His glory

That this poem was not an empty story.

If I …


If I poured my heart out to you, would you stop & listen?

If I had a story to share would you have a moment to hear?

How many times have I said my day is fine, but you never cared enough to question me?

If I was drowning would you stop to save me?

If I was stuck in a fire would you jump in to rescue me?

If I was living in sin, would you care enough to share the truth?

So many questions and yet how would you respond? Do we care enough about our brothers and sisters to be there in crucial moments. Is your Christian walk just a walk or is it a marathon that you are chasing after God? As we walk closer with the Lord the answers to these many questions become so clear. You won’t have to second guess, you won’t have to worry, doubt, or even let fear creep in. Jesus died on the cross to allow the Holy Spirit to dwell in you. Never take for granted the promises that are stated in the word of God. You are a child of God, you are the salt and light of this world, you can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens you. Stop worrying about who will be offended. Won’t they be more upset if they are burning in a lake of fire and you never said a word?

God Provides Much – Poem


You thought it would be better

Until you felt cold like a winter with no sweater

You ran to where you thought was safe

Not realizing it caused your soul to chafe

You want to get back to where you once were

But the past has become a blur

You want to have what you once did

But the past was closed with a tight lid

How can you get back

When you lost the track

You can try to recreate

Doesn’t mean the food will taste the same on that plate

The weight of that decision

Has caused you to seek out a new vision

Maybe we can change & morph into something new

Or maybe you just lost that sticky glue

That kept it all together

Despite the painful cold weather

But now it is a new season

You keep looking for the reason

Why did God close that door

Why did you get knocked to the floor

Man will try many things to draw you in

But be careful not to let it be a sin

Life is full of many decisions

Be sure to pray for God’s provisions

If we take the wrong path

It could lead to God’s wrath

So choose wisely & don’t make haste

Because your decisions must be faced

Let your relationship with God be the true reason

That you have chosen to fall into this season

Never let anyone drive you to breaking

It is time for our eyes to begin waking

The truth is exposed for all to see

I pray that you will fall to your knee

Come back to where God wants you to be

Under the branches of this olive tree

Under His wing is warm & calm

When is the last time you read the Psalm

The word of God helps bring us wisdom

When dealing with topics outside of the kingdom

Trust God to open your eyes

To anyone who tries to bring you lies

I wish nothing but the best for you

Even if you decide to leave this crew

Make sure it is God who is calling

And not just your spirit which is stalling

The true voice of God speaks strong

He wants His family to all get along

So stop trying to divide

When Christ says the Church is my bride

Together united we will win

Continue to search within

For the call that God keeps placing

He wants to keep embracing

The feelings that you keep chasing

Together we must be facing

The time is short

Bring it all into God’s court

Let us not contort

The truth but instead show support

God teach us to trust

And no longer combust

Over things that are unjust

Instead we thrust

All our emotions, feelings, and such

To the Lord my God who provides much.

Draw Me Back To Thee – Poem


If I was poor

Would you open your door

If I was on the floor

Would you help me more

If I had no clothes in my drawer

Would you take me to a store

How many times

Would you offer your dime

How many rhymes

Must I share before you will climb

It is lunch time

The food I have is sour like a lime

How much would it cost

For you to help save the lost

How much food have you tossed

Speaking hot air like exhaust

It is cold, I can see the frost

Yet all you talk about is that cross

How can I focus on such a thing

My stomach is still growling

Just a piece of bread will make me sing

Warm me like a hot spring

I am still waiting for you to bring

Me to this Man that you call King

You talk about Him day and night

What good is that, I am full of fright

You talk of Jesus being a bright light

But in my darkness I have lost sight

Please oh please just share the highlights

Let your good news be my flashlight

Lead me back to where I belong

I walked away and I know I was wrong

I want to find my new song

So I can sing His praises all the day long

Can I come along

When is He coming, I hope it won’t be long

My body is weak

My outlook is bleak

The people call me a freak

My joints make loud creaks

Why is Jesus so unique

Please teach me to seek

You said He died for my sin

Why would anyone die for this has been

You said that Jesus did win

Conquered death, did He have a twin

When did this all begin

How can Jesus live within

I want to have this new life you speak of

I want to receive His love

Please God bless me from above

Show me Your truelove

I am ready to shove

The old me aside and fall in love

With the one who made me

The one who saved me

Jesus I need Thee

To open my heart with Your key

Please set me free

And draw me back to Thee!

You Wanted Me To Fail – Poem

You wanted me to fail

But God told me to exhale

Stop worrying about the hate mail

Jesus paid the price for the sale

His hands were pierced by nails

He broke out of that jail

That boulder tossed like a snail

He tore the veil

The women did wail

Can’t you read the braille

Jesus is not dead, He left no trail

He died to tip the scale

To bring you grace so please inhale

God will always prevail

Open your eyes, remove the scales

The life of Jesus is not a fish tale

He died, beaten, tortured, & frail

But we wait patiently for His return on the clouds like a sail

The Bible contains all the detail

Be ready for God to unveil

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, keep us fresh, never stale.
