Waiting For A Breakthrough – Poem

Who am I

A question we all ask but why

Looking for the meaning of life

Yet this life cuts like a knife

A wound deep beneath the skin

Almost like it was built-in

Why do I have this pain

Building up like a bad sprain

Everyone offers help to lift you up

But that is only a momentary pickup

So today who has reached out

Who has helped me with this doubt

I implore you to never give up

Stop trying to cover-up

All the pain that holds you down

All the pain that causes you to frown

All the pain that makes you feel let down

All the pain that makes you want to breakdown

There has to be more

Than what you can buy in the store

I want you to keep singing

Your voice always in my ear bringing

My spirit up

Even when I have a buildup

Of pain

All caught in my brain

But the easy answer

Is there is no cure for cancer

Who dealt me these cards

I have always been on guard

Trying to protect the ones I love

Keep them close to me like a glove

But no matter how hard I try

The end continues to draw nigh

I want to enjoy today

Please don’t push me away

I know you are scared

But that is why Jesus shared

His life on the cross

To remind satan that He was the boss

Today I plead with you

To let go of everything that is making you blue

It is time to restore all that is true

God’s word kicks evil like Kung Fu

I can’t pull you through

But if you have faith Jesus will come through

Can I ask you a question

Will you stop all the aggression

Will you begin with confession

This is just my suggestion

Faith removes the depression

And leaves a positive impression

We are made in the image of God

Except Adam & Eve allowed us to become flawed

Nonetheless by the grace of God

We can now applaud

For God has given us a way

So we will no longer betray

The Son of Man

This has been God’s plan

To sacrifice His only Son

He said “it is finished” & then it was done

God help me remain strong

All the day long

Even when life happens

Help me to continue laughing

I give my life to You

I am waiting for a breakthrough

We Didn’t Plan This – Poem

How can you understand

Cancer was never planned

How did this happen

Where is your compassion

People complaining about nothing

Always talking about something

Yet this pain is not leaving

Here I am grieving

The world constantly deceiving

Yet the sheep are still unbelieving

How can I move forward

The questions sound like a broken recorder

How is she doing

Questions sound like they are interviewing

We are waiting on a miracle

Something that is biblical

Not searching for “a” healer

Yet constantly checking for a fever

Looking for “The Healer”

To bind up the cancer like a concealer

Not just hide it

But transform it

Remove the cells that are attacking

While the doctors are tracking

So they can see

That God can do anything

Meanwhile I get inspired

Even when I am tired

God keeps speaking to my mind

Wanting me to reach out to the blind

I am just a man looking to share God’s plan

I reached out to this particular man

Where is the man that wanted to be

More than what the world said he could achieve

A man chasing after God

Instead of trying to avoid the rod

Common man don’t give me this or that

It is time to get back on track

What more are you waiting for

God is standing, knocking, on your front door❗️🚪

I can’t save you

But I can remind you

Jesus died to save you

He won’t run from you

No matter how long it takes

He waits patiently even when we try to be fake

Our feelings may be hurt

Put back on your shirt

Nobody wants to see that

It is time to fall flat

On our faces

And get back in God’s good graces. 🙏

I praise God for my pain

Because He allows me to see through the rain

It is just a storm

The prayers continue to transform

All my pain into a testimony

No I am not trying to be phony

My story is not over

It is hard to find like a 4 leaf clover

Buried among many chapters

I am praying for the rapture

Jesus I don’t know how much more I can take

Take a hold of my soul and shake

Cause me to remain strong

Continue to show me where I belong

Your power is stronger

And keeps me fighting longer

Hold me up

Fill my cup

Cause me to overflow

Pour out so others may grow

Closer to You Lord

It is You alone that I adore❗️

Now That Is Something I Can Applaud❗️ – Poem

Don’t be so raw that you’re hard

Words so sharp they cut like a chard

We need people that speak truth

Bring back that old phone booth

Super Man lost his cover

It’s time for us to rediscover

Jesus died for your heart

He took the shot like a fiery dart

Satan tried Him

God saved Him

Rose again like a boss

But you too busy shopping at Ross

Looking for a bargain

Meanwhile Jesus rose again

He wants to save you

Ring that up, that is true

Stop trying to blow money on worldly things

Salvation is better than a diamond ring

No matter how many times

I keep spitting the same rhyme

It falls on death ears

Too busy drinking them beers

Does the truth hurt

You to busy trying to flirt

Looking for love in all the wrong places

But even CSI can’t find any traces

Love is not found just anywhere

Love is it found at the fair

Love is not found in any pair

Jesus died to remove the despair

Jesus is love

He came from above

To take it all on the cross

To give you access to come across

There is only one way

Don’t let anyone lead you astray

Jesus is the only

Stop falling for the phony

The one true God

Now that is something I can applaud❗️

Do You Remember When…


Do you remember the first time you received bad news? Last week my wife was in the hospital with what everyone thought was pneumonia. The doctor did a bronchoscopy and didn’t find any tumors so we thought we were in the clear. The biopsy takes a couple of days to come back. I was the first one to get the phone call and the doctor said, “it is cancer.” I was immediately in shock, I didn’t know how to respond, well how could I other then scream internally and question God why why why?

Kristeen’s mom died from lung cancer that metastasized to her brain about 3.5 years ago, but her mom smoked and was much older. I couldn’t comprehend how this could be happening to such a young woman. My wife has been such a giving person of herself and her time to so many people. I immediately thought God I am not ready to give my wife to you, I need her here, my kids need her here.

Yesterday we met with the oncologist and he gave us what the treatment options are. Of course I wasn’t thrilled with our options or the fact that this cancer is not cureable according to modern day medicine, but I still hold on to the fact that I serve a miracle working God and just because the doctors say there is no way doesn’t mean that God can’t do it. My dad was told he would never walk again and he has been walking for many years still.

The prognosis was very scary, I won’t lie about that, but I had to ask what the doctors thought about how much more time I would have with my wife. Some of you may know and understand that Kristeen is at stage 4 and the cancer has spread from her lungs, to her bones, and even to her brain. I try not to focus on the time we have left, but instead leave time in God’s hand while I take in every moment I have left with my bride. I love my wife and wouldn’t trade her for anything in the world.

I will leave everyone with this, don’t take anything for granted and be thankful for everything that God has blessed you with because in an instant everything can change.

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

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?
