Hear My Cry Oh Lord – Poem

So now I sit and wait

Wondering if it is too late

Waiting for answers to my questions

Everyone giving me suggestions

Oh what a journey this has been

Asking God when when when

When will this be over

When will Your healing spillover

Day and night we pray

That she will reach her next birthday

Lord we need more time

We know You are working overtime

All of our needs we bring before You

We know there is still much to do

We call upon Your name

The name of Jesus we claim

We cry out with our souls

Please make Kristeen whole

Each day brings new circumstances

Yet You have provided for all of our finances

God you amaze

Our hearts set ablaze

We believe You raised

Jesus Christ as everyone gave praise

Do it again Lord

We pray in one accord

We call upon Thee

To set Kristeen free

Bind up that cancer

You are the only answer

May all the people see

In Jesus name cancer does flee

We place our faith in You

Please make Kristeen brand new

I have entered my cry

Now I wait for Your reply…

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

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❗️

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…

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!

What Can You Do To Share Jesus?


Can I share a story without anyone giving me credit? Okay here we go. My neighbor was outside cutting her grass. She is an elderly woman who doesn’t drive. I was outside cutting my yard as well. I noticed that she ran out of grass, grabbed her gas can, got on her bike and headed to the gas station. She is very independent and hates to bother anyone else. Once she left I went over to her house finished cutting her yard. I cleaned up and went inside. I had the privilege of watching her through my front window, ride her bike back home. When she got to the front of her house her face lit up with disbelief. It was so priceless and melted my heart. I say all of this not to say look at me but instead to say what little thing can you do to be a blessing to someone else? It is not about us but helping others that makes this world worth living. Show others Jesus by going above and beyond to be a blessing.

An Apple That Started It All – Poem

Adam & Eve lived in a garden that was wide

Looking cockeyed

They did backslide

Good & Evil did collide

The Sneaky Snake tried to broadside

Told Eve to ignore God’s side

Take a bite in stride

Adam looked at his bride

The fruit they both eyed

Adam & Eve tried

Then they tried to hide

Sin did enter in because they applied

The downfall of man came like a landslide

God’s wrath went worldwide

The knowledge of good & evil was classified

God had clarified

You both have now untied

Now you must remain outside

Your birthing pains will be amplified

That is just one downside

No longer dignified

Adam looked horrified

God had to change the tide

No longer will man be tied

Jesus preached on the hillside

He told of the upside

Crowds gathered along the roadside

The solders fortified

Jesus was identified

Judas stood beside

A kiss which mortified

Mary cried

Jesus died

Three times Peter denied

Satan had lied

Jesus died so you could be qualified

Your sins have been purified

The past has been ratified

Are you not satisfied?

The word of God has specified

What you must do to be set aside

God must be magnified

Let no man try to override

Even if they are mystified

Jesus died so you can be verified

When is the last time you testified?

Get off your backside

Your name written in the book of life has been certified

Together as Christians we must be unified❗️

Just One More – Sermon Notes

 

Thank you for joining us again for another session of Faith Matters.  We had the privilege of taking a family vacation and spending time with family.  Now it is back to reality and getting things accomplished.  Summer time means vacation time for many families.  Everyone needs a vacation; some time away from the job and time to relax with the ones you love.  Today I am going to talk about a very difficult topic and I pray that you will give me grace when listening to it.

Before we go any further let us open in prayer.  Heavenly Father I thank you for allowing my family the ability to travel and spend time with our relatives.  During this time you opened my eyes to a topic that is very sensitive for almost every person in this world.  Lord, I pray for the right words, I pray for your guidance, I pray that You will give me the perfect words to explain what you have placed on my heart to convict those who need it and that they will receive it well and not be upset with the messenger.  In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen.

Let’s start out with the definition of consume:

Eat, drink, or ingest (food or drink).

Synonyms: eat, devour, ingest, swallow, gobble up, wolf down, guzzle, feast on, snack on

So if you haven’t figured it out I am being bold and talking about one of the sins that I have to battle on a daily basis.  That sin has another name which you probably don’t hear very much which is called gluttony.

The definition of gluttony is:

Habitual greed or excess in eating.

Synonyms: greed, greediness, overeating,

By normal American standards most people would look at me and not think I am overweight, but I am.  The hardest thing to hear is your Doctor telling you that you are obese.  I looked at myself and said there is no way, but yet I haven’t been getting any smaller.  I try to do 3 + miles on my lunch breaks a couple of times a week, but that hasn’t really put a dent in it.  I have to start pushing myself harder to exercise more and push away from the table.

God has blessed me with the ability to cook good food and then I keep going back for that one more bite.  Did you know that saying “just one more” is the trap that gets us all to become stuck in our sin?  We tell ourselves that we will only do it “just one more time”, but then that turns into the next time and the next time.  It is only by the power of Jesus that we can break the cycle of sin and be able to have the strength to constantly say no more.

Proverbs 23:20-21 Be not among drunkards or among gluttonous eaters of meat, for the drunkard and the glutton will come to poverty, and slumber will clothe them with rags.

Will you ever walk into Church and hear the preacher talking about over eating?  Not likely, but I know for me it has become a sin.  I am not saying that overweight people are sinners, but I would say that we each have to examine our lives and ask if we are living them properly in all aspects of life to be glorifying God.  I will continue to pray and seek God’s wisdom as I continue my own personal battle to keep the weight off.  I know that it is possible for me to overcome and I have to stop indulging myself and start denying my flesh.

Another verse that keeps standing out to me is:

1 Corinthians 3:16-17 Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.

God has given me this body and if I truly believe that Jesus is alive in me and that my body is His temple then I need to start putting more action into how I am living my life.  I don’t know if you guys do this, but I give myself excuses or special reasons why I deserve some ice cream.  I really have to examine everything I do as I continue to draw closer to the Lord.  Some battles like this one it is up to me to press in and ask for God’s strength to help me in this spiritual battle and defeat my fleshly desires.

A similar example of consuming too much and not exercising as a Christian can be found in Church on Sunday mornings.  For many years I sat in service every Sunday morning consuming the word of God, but the thing that I was lacking was the exercising of my Faith.  Because I didn’t exercise my Faith my soul was getting satisfied and contempt while others around me were starving because no one was sharing the word of God with them.

As a Christian it is up to us to exercise that Faith, burn off the excess and let the Holy Spirit not stop with us but instead continue to flow from us to others.  For far too many years this was a stumbling block for me and I never realized it.  I was too busy enjoying what I was receiving that I didn’t stop to examine if I was doing enough exercising.

Today I make it a point to share and talk about Jesus as much as I can.  I don’t want people to be excited about me or my name, but instead to find their own personal relationship with Jesus.  Yet again I didn’t understand what it was to have a relationship with Jesus until I started to exercise my Faith.  Once you have a relationship then you will never go back.  You completely understand what the scriptures are talking about when they say you have to die to yourself daily and pick up your cross.  The more of this world that I have blocked out of my life, the more distractions that I have removed, the more desires of my flesh that I have been able to avoid, the closer my walk with God has become.

There is no magic formula, no specific way to find your relationship; we each have our own unique walk to find the Lord.  Please take some time out today to examine all aspects of your life and let the conviction of the Holy Spirit point out the flaws that your natural eyes keep overlooking.

Heavenly Father I thank you for pointing out the areas of my life that need attention.  I pray that others who listen to this find their own areas of conviction whether it is sin like mine or maybe just exercising their faith.  Lord please help us to be stronger and remove all fear so that we can spread the good news of the gospel.  Like train us up like soldiers and prepare us for battle for the things of this world are not just physical, but also spiritual.  Jesus in your name I pray, Amen.

Thank you for taking the time to listen.  I am sorry if my message rubbed you the wrong way, but this is what God placed on my heart and a battle that I have to address in my life.  I felt that there might be others out there that need to be encouraged and that with Jesus the “one more time” option will be removed.  Don’t be discouraged, keep pressing forward.  God has a plan for your life just like He does for me.  Let each of your battles become a testimony of how God is working in your life.

If you would like to reach out to me, you can do so on Twitter @KNGMusic or via our website http://www.KNGMusicMinistry.com  Thank you for pausing to listen, I pray the upcoming week will be a blessing for you.  God bless.
 

Broken Until Restored

You picked up a stone
You cast it upon my dome,

You thought it was just a joke
It made my head spin like a bicycle spoke,

Maybe one day you will see
Why I keep trying to flee,

Every time you come around
I keep getting knocked to the ground,

Jesus, I cried out to you
But you couldn’t look me through,

It was my time to learn a lesson
Before you bestowed my blessing,

Now I truly understand
Why I had to be reprimand,

My God you are so perfect
So I don’t understand why we didn’t connect,

I know you were there
But I didn’t give a care,

Maybe now that I am a monster
I can learn how to be a good songster,

And take all this suffering
Upload without any buffering,

All that I have learned
From each time that I was burned,

Jesus you are the only way!
For me to make it this day!
