Grace & Mercy

G&M

If not for mercy… I deserve

But by grace I do accept what I don’t deserve…that HE have given me

Mercy from HIM isn’t giving me what I do deserve… and I’m… thankful for that

Absurd and unheard are these words I know but I reckon

If I repeat my confession enough

One that observes my expression might begin to understand the reflection of such

inward truths

Grace is what God gives us when we don’t deserve…Mercy is when God doesn’t give us what we do

Gratification from a sinner in words…spoken through the elevation of sharp tones

Piercing from the pierced bones of weak marrow…

I… thank you…praise you…honor you…adore you…lift you up…for you are worthy to be praised!!!

For I live to praise HIM for such virtue!!!

First HE…loved me…and now I love HIM for HIS grace and mercy!

Smiling down on me…shedding an eternal light

The Spirit gives life;

The flesh… counts for nothing.

Spoken words directly from you…

They are full of the Spirit and life.

An expression from just one out of twelve…eleven more just like…still would not suffice..yet I strive to be a faithful disciple…call it my offering…not even 10%…if from heaven you could just receive my praise…press it down…shake it together and running over shall you give unto men just like me.

If not for mercy… I deserve

But by grace I do accept what I don’t deserve that HE have given me

Mercy from HIM isn’t giving me what I do deserve and I’m thankful for that

if you are anything like me you… need HIM…

Necessarily…I lift up the name of the almighty…El Shaddai…the necessity of my living…by his indispensable spirit I breathe…

Absurd and unheard are these words I know but I reckon

If I repeat my confession enough

One that observes my expression might begin to understand the reflection of such

inward truths

There are some people who will never see the Glory of who HE is in their lifetime

Brought to the priest…

Uneasily apprehended…as a ghost in the mist of busters…

Examined and found with no fault in HIM at all…

HE… paid it all…that we might become the righteousness of god in Christ…

HE …became sin for us

You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. We are witnesses of that.

Like HIS disciples responded after seeing JESUS rise from the dead…I just can’t wait to tell the whole world about HIM

JESUS is alive!

All who labor and are heavy laden come to HIM and HE will give you rest, take HIS yoke upon you, and learn from HIM, for HE is gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls, for HIS yoke is easy, and HIS burden is light.

As Peter said, “We cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard”

If not for mercy…We deserve

But by grace you can accept what you don’t deserve…that wants to give you

Mercy from HIM isn’t giving you what you do deserve so be thankful for that

Absurd and unheard are these words I know but I reckon

If I repeat my confession enough

One that observes my expression might begin to understand the reflection

Of such

inward truths

Grace is what God gives us when we don’t deserve…Mercy is when God doesn’t give us what we do

Activate Your Destiny!

Activate

 

I’m thirsting for…something fresh…

Something…new!

I’m thirsting for…

Something full of whatever is… UN-watered down, maximum dose filled with the precious fulfillment of…

Joy close to my heart that sparks…

Laughter within that burst out and…

Dwells in my reach

If you can preach, preach it, if you can teach, teach it, educate and demonstrate to every eye that has not seen,

Let your speech reach every ear that has not heard, words that could…quench that thirst

If it were I, I might quote John 3:16 or…

Tell you to be strong, courageous and meditate day and night like Joshua,

Then you will be prosperous and successful.

I’ve never seen the righteous forsaken but yet

Night after night I lay awake and

Think about Good people with servant’s heart barely making it.

I tell you their bread is coming,

Unworthy but never worthless, set apart for special work, this animated dust, aggravated persistently, provoked and exasperate has purpose.

Whatever the worst is…

Doesn’t compare to what your worth is,

See the truth is,

We are…

We are JOINT HEIRS WITH CHRIST according to the hope of eternal life, the riches of the glory of His Spiritual inheritance in the saints ripe.

So… wipe away every tear from your eyes;

Debate no more about former things of the past, your future awaits

If…

You trust In Him,

Be sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise,

Who is the guarantee until the redemption of the purchased possession that’s promised,

With satisfaction of every blessing,

Prosper over every weapon formed against you

The willing and obedient shall eat the good of the land… And whatever we ask in HIS name we receive from Him, because we keep His commands

But first you must rebuke the one, who tempts you,

Once subjecting but now subject to objecting darkness

Give your lives to spiritual pursuit and reap what you sow, the kingdom of lights in your mist.

Use it for the glory of God and draw from the wells of salvation and you will be filled with the abundance,

This is not just mere avocation, its truth that calculates cultivation of every candidate destined to reach their destiny despite complication.

Debate no more about former things of the past, your future awaits

But you must…not… wait

Activate your Destiny!

Question?

When I feel the way I feel today, I need answers.

I need answers that only GOD can give,

But I don’t know which direction the answer will come from.

I don’t even know what I’m about to say next, all I know is that I’m moved to write

And express how I feel.

I have a feeling of uncertainty.

I don’t know what will happen next,

What I’m supposed to do next,

Or who I’m supposed to talk to.

It’s a feeling that I really can’t fully explain, so this is what you get.

I get tired;

I get tired of trying to do things my way so I surrender to the voice.

Yes it’s a voice, not audible but instinctive.

I feel it,

Hear it

And know who it comes from even,

But when I try to figure out what it is saying, I sometimes can’t hear the words clearly.

It’s like the voice is muffled.

When I get in trouble I hear it,

When I praise I feel it.

I know GOD, and I know HE is with me but I don’t always know what HE is trying to say to me,

Though I know it is something.

I even feel a release now as I write this,

A feeling that I need to relax.

I feel GOD tells me to relax but I don’t do it.

I had to relax the other day when GOD spoke to me.

I wanted to move but GOD said stay still.

My teeth clench, it goes against the feeling I long for.

I want to relax, and when GOD says relax I start to feel weird and go against it.

I can’t fight GOD;

I know the power that HE has.

I force myself to obey HIM because what HE wants me to do is always right, I know this.

Don’t ask me how I know, I just know.

I can say it’s because of what HE has already done,

How he has been faithful and how it says in HIS word that HE cannot lie, but it’s more than that.

It’s my faith in HIM.

It’s my faith in those things that I cannot see.

I cannot see how HE is going to work in my life next but I have faith that HE will.

I know HE will because I know HIM to be a faithful GOD

I believe the HE will never leave me nor forsake me.

I have all the faith in the world that GOD will guide and protect me.

So why am I so unsure of the future?

Why am I so unsure of what I am feeling?

Why am I so unsure of what my next move needs to be?

I can’t explain it or how I feel exactly.

Can you?

Do you have the answer?

Do you know something that I don’t know?

How long have you known such things and why have you not shared them with me?

Why am I left in the dark about things like this?

Why does it always look like I know what I need to do when really I have no clue?

What’s next?

Where do I go from here?

I’m writing this to you because I sense that you know though I do not know who you are?

I’m even uncertain about that last sentence, but hey! At least I am certain about one thing.

GOD is for me.

The Prayer of a Warrior

May I have your attention for one second…

Do I have any warriors ready to activate your weapons?

Here’s a quick lesson…I’ll only be a second

See the bible tells me to pray in the spirit on all occasions

and its a wild guess but I’m guessing

that this is the perfect occasion the offer up quick prayers of supplication

for the nation…

see…

In the middle east, in the the rebel town of Libya…wars raging!

Forces from raging waters in Japan creating Tsunami’s leaving whole towns blazing

Its amazing…they able to maintain dignity amid devastation

But regardless the situation…

Paul tells us in Ephesians..with this mind, be alert and always keep on praying

For all the Lords people…

Weeping may endure for a night but joys comes in the morning

and while were mourning for those lost…

The Lords prayer is my petition for guidance and protection on this walk

So JESUS…

I model the prayer that YOU taught us!

Our Father..in heaven..hallowed be your name..your kingdom come..your will be done..

on earth as it is in heaven..give us this day..our daily bread..forgive us our sins..as we

forgive those who sin against us..lead us not into temptation..but deliver us from evil..

for the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory are yours now and for ever…

Amen!

Smiled on Me!

Excuse me while I give HIM praise for HIS grace and mercy!

Giving me water when I was thirsty

food when I was hungry

comfort when I was lonely

Only HE is worthy

Known to be faithful

Able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all that we ask or think

I can’t imagine where I’d be without HIM

Or just maybe I can

Still locked up spiritually, mentally and physically, committing sinful acts of immorality, hatred and jealousy

see…that’s the use to be me

gone

new has come

literally…HE deliberately …set this captive free from sin

Brought out of the land of slavery

Like Egypt out of the hand of pharaoh

Understand..HE kept and delivered me so that you could see your delivery

 

I feel like..

GOD is ready to shift the season of HIS people from oppression to freedom

I’m…

proclaiming change like the covenant king Zedikiah made for his slaves back in Jeremiah to free them

Now…

I know they changed their minds and took back the slaves they had freed and enslaved them again

but this freedom I proclaim is from sin

leaving you never to be the same again..like

like the day I completely gave my life to CHRIST

taking resolute action in a crisis, commando battalion style life

this is spiritual warfare might I invoke CHRIST

There is a way that seems right to a man but its end is the way of death

I once was going the right way on the wrong path

I shoulda went right but took a left

I…persecuted Christ like

like Saul before Paul on the way to Damascus

until…

suddenly a light from heaven flashed

now the past is the past

and the rest… well…

 

THE BEST IS YET TO BE TOLD!!!

My Supplication

I want to take a second to pause and give honor and Glory to the Father who is the head of my life, for setting me free from the bondage of sin. As we examine our Quest to Freedom I feel that it is not only relevant but necessary to acknowledge to one who gave up HIS life to free us and to restore us to our rightful place as children of God.

“He is good;
his love endures forever
”Covenant GOD, the forgiver of sins, however, sinful you are
As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us
Loved us, before we loved ourselves, wells running dry, cried tears and dried out eyes, he pacified infirmities
healed all disease
redeemed is his people
From the pits HE crowns YOU with HIS love and compassion
“I will sing of your love and justice”
Hear the cry and the prayer of thy servant It’s a must this
supplication is received
I need you..breathe you..Seek you..protect me..save me..rule me..and redeem me from Myself
Inflicted is pain upon my heart, I can’t help but to want, though I wait upon you who know my needs
apart from my flesh Control my
mind God
YOU “intensified” MY strength, with YOUR power you deepen MY capacity for knowledge
make everything new, “quicken” my spirit, activate restoration as I hasten to give birth to
life out of death
close mental application of consecration seems necessary…meaning, exemplified, I feel like
I feel revealed like… a revelation
this “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it SHINE!!!”
this is deep!!!
beyond MY understanding I understand YOU are
high and lifted up..thoughts above my thoughts..ways above my ways..pave my path to your presence
about face my mentality with thy faithfulness oh God
Hear the cry and the prayer of thy servant, It’s a must this..supplication is received
And when you hear Forgive
For you alone know my heart
Certainly HE made my mind and heart; HE wove me together in my mother’s womb
Lacking Independence of thought HE groomed my intelligence
until ability to stand alone, un-sustained by irrelevance bloomed
into the invention and discovery of…me
Paralyzed and maimed, crippled with two left HE
gave me a right foot, talked me into immunity, hooked me with liberty and deliverance from the sea by the fisher of men was well….free
Reconciled from free will, I must be…willed to do HIS will
may the LORD deal with me, be it ever so severely, if I do not continue my Quest
Knowledge and understanding I seek, engaged in an expedition for wisdom I press
toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus!
I plead with thee
Hear the cry and the prayer of thy servant, It’s a must this
supplication is
received

Hello world!

“A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts” – James Allen

The writings I now compose are my “Thoughts of Character” spoken with a boldness that is obtained through the confidence given to me by my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This blog  will be comprised of spoken words that have been performed with this boldness that I have obtained only to be revisited by the reading of it. In hope that the Glory of my Savior is revealed I encourage the exploration of my art, through this exclusive documentation of such performances excluding live footage, encouraging the reader to formulate a personal interpretation applicable to one’s own character.

Happy Reading!
