You define me to know You more

You remind me to slow down and Your Words not ignore

You confine me no longer solo behind and before

You shine in me to overflow into other’s lives pour

You dine with me, not left alone, for Your Presence to adore

You refine me to grow closer toward

You align me to go and do likewise for

You design me to show I’m not my own but Yours

You unwind me after undertow for my soul to restore

You find me low and strengthen once again to soar

Seeking You, only You

You making all things new

New life bring through Your FATHER’s will drew

Drew near to nearer come true

True North of HIS will likewise to go do

Do go forth to proclaim the Good News

News worthy to be told prove

Prove way of salvation He knew

Knew your soul; desperate for the Mystery to come solve with love’s key out of the blue

blue skies light up when He will open the door of your heart before even having a clue

Clue in to the sin and the stress that grew

Grew to know need of forgiveness and help of a Savior through and through

Through His blood on the cross for your soul He continues to pursue

Pursue His peace of reconciliation that will love GOD and others ensue

Ensue grace and mercy for accepting a rescue

Rescue your life, fearfully and wonderfully made by HIM, to trust and believe too

Too many wondrous thoughts of love outnumber grains of sand toward you woo

Woo you who are empty for pouring into affirmations of love to accrue

Accrue all that you’re needing anew;  still seeking, soon come into view

View HIS face and outstretched arms seeking you, the one and only you

 

How do I start to express what is in my heart?  The gravity of certain situations pull on my soul that compels me to plead with God to bring HIS healing touch and to show up in a way they will know they are loved and can find hope, faith, and the love they need to continue to live, to fight, and to expect better for their future.  It’s their right to survive and go beyond to thrive…  Stay alive!  why? because I said so and more than that to know JESUS who will show you greater love…  Stay alive!!  why?  because I know there is a hope and future waiting…  Stay alive!!!…  God loves you, is there present with you even when you don’t see or feel HIM, will help you overcome and fight your battles for you, will never leave nor forsake you, prove you’re not alone, and bring you out of dark into Light…

 

 

How do I express I love you to all that I reach out to?  I say “I love you” and mean it which resides deep within from HIS love for me and how HE’s helped me through the darkness that I want you so desperately to know for yourself.  In my heart and mind, they are not weak words, but a great compassion that I’ve been given to which I don’t want to hold back, hide away, nor pretend isn’t there.  I love-love those who have been abused for this love grew within me when God granted me the experiences to work and serve with children and youth in an emergency shelter for over 2 years who were sexually abused, the worse kind of abuse a child can go through.  I lived with them in the home for 4 days of each week helping them through their episodes, their fears at night, their nightmares, and their trust issues.  I was there to greet them in the morning, make them meals, take them to school, help them with homework, take them to special outings, encourage and support them.  This was life changing for me to learn how to love these precious children.  Any of you who have been abused, I have a special love for you and always will…  I have a special love and bond with those I served with who taught me how to love and care in a deeper way, have faith to believe in God to heal, take away nightmares, and bring hope into their hearts and souls and make a way for a brighter future.  At that time, I was learning to be a father figure to those who were not biologically mine.  I have that willingness to adopt anyone needing a loving father to love, care, support, and encourage them in their life who may not have those things evidenced or experiencing now in their life.  Do you need a loving dad?  I will be that for you.  Why?  God has given me a heart for orphans and those abused for this is HIS heart He’s shared with me and put in me to have.  God has given me a heart for those who have mental illness and depression for I too have experienced these struggles and setbacks along the way.  I love you…  God loves you…  I believe the greater your hurt and pain, the greater your compassion to help others will be…  I believe the greater abuse you have experienced, the greater capacity you have to depend on, trust in, and love God more than others ever will…  I believe that you have a hope and a future HE will show you, lead you in, and give to you…

I’m holding on to you… through prayer, through faith, through belief, through the typing of words I hope you know are true…  Will you hold on too!!…  God HIMSELF is holding on to you with HIS mighty right hand lifting you up out of the pit from being stuck and will place you on the Rock of Salvation to stand firm in faith, in belief, in hope, in undying love…  Reach for HIS hand who is trustworthy and faithful to keep you, love you, accept you, heal you, rescue you, and redeem you…  HE will answer you if you ask for help continually…  HE will find you if you seek HIM for HIS help crying out continually…  HE will answer you if you keep knocking on the door and open your heart to HIM continually…  Don’t stop, Don’t give up, Don’t end your precious life…

Change your perspective to that of being or for the first time becoming HIS daughter or son and begin to:

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Let your life find the freedom you are yearning for and desire to have by continuing to live on…  There is great reward on the other side of the pain, hurt, sadness, illness;…

I am not ashamed to say “I love you” to those in need of it the most…  You are who I am called and chosen to love…

When you feel yourself so far away, call out to HIM…

 

 

If you need help, get help.  You can also call me if you want and I’ll be there for you and listen.  806-781-0810

If you feel lost, afraid, broken, unable to fight, HE is there for you to hold you and carry you…

 

 

Always praying…  Always believing…  Always waiting…  Always protecting…  Always trusting… Always hoping… Always persevering… Always loving… for you…  even when you feel you can’t…

Try again with JESUS by your side forevermore…

 

The Good News is that you can be saved.

The Good News is the Gospel in which JESUS came from Heaven to earth to die for your sins in taking your place so you can be forgiven, accepted, adopted, and loved for all eternity…

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.  Romans 1:16

A)  Acknowledge that you are a sinner (not perfect, make mistakes, done wrong) and

accept that you need a Savior

B)  Bring your heart to God and believe that JESUS died on the cross for your sins in

taking your place and that God raised Him from the dead to be your best friend,

hero, rescuer, and Redeemer

C)  Come like a child and choose to place your trust and faith in JESUS

 

If you have already prayed to receive and trust in JESUS, then awesome!  Let me know.

Here is how you can pray if you need to do so now:

Dear God,

I am a sinner in need of a Savior.  I am in need of healing for my heart, mind, soul, body, and spirit.  I believe JESUS died for my sins and You raised Him back to life.  JESUS, I ask You for forgiveness for my past, present, and future sins and invite you to come into my heart to have new life you give to me.  I turn away from doing wrong. I need You.  I trust and have faith in You now and forevermore…  God give me the Holy Spirit to help me learn truth and to comfort me in times of need… In JESUS’ name, Amen.

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  Romans 10:9

For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.  Romans 10:10

As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”  Romans 10:11

And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased for God persons from every tribe and language and people and nation.  Revelation 5:9

Let me know if you have trusted in JESUS as your Savior so I can rejoice with you as a brother or sister adopted into God’s family forevermore…

Isn’t this amazing!

Which tribe, language, people, and/or nation do you represent?
