Lord of all creation - I come to You now in the name of this Jesus I have heard about.  I was born into a sinful world and have lived in ignorance and rebellion to Your truth.  Jesus, I accept You as God manifested in the flesh, born as an offering for my sins.  Born to pay the price I am unable to pay - the price required for restored fellowship with my Creator.

I am sorry for all my sins and turn away from them. Please forgive me and make me a vessel fit for Your use.  I release any bitterness or unforgiveness in my heart and ask You to deal with those situations.  I believe You were born of a virgin, died on the cross, rose from the dead on the third day, ascended into heaven and are now sitting at the right hand of the Father, making intercession for me.

You are now Lord of my life.

JESUS IS COMING SOON! HOW SHALL WE ESCAPE IF WE NEGLECT SO GREAT A SALVATION?

Confess Jesus before men and He will confess you before the Father.
Take me home now please.

awe-inspiring majesty


"for since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse" rom 1:20

the morning sun's golden rays,
painted upon the sky ablaze,
whispers of God's glory and grace,
in every beam, a heavenly trace.

mountains high and oceans deep,
nature's wonders, secrets keep,
in each grand scene, God's hand appears,
a testament to His glory, loud and clear.

the stars above, a twinkling choir,
sing of His majesty, never to tire,
from dusk till dawn, they brightly shine,
revealing the glory that is truly divine.

oh, how small we are, in this vast domain,
yet God's glory, in us, will forever remain,
for in our hearts, His love resides,
a sacred flame that never subsides.

let us humbly bow before His might,
and bask in His glory, day and night,
for in God's presence, we find our peace,
His glory, an eternal masterpiece.

in the symphony of creation's song,
God's glory echoes, pure and strong,
from the rustling leaves to the roaring sea,
each note resounds, setting spirits free.

the chirping birds, a melodious choir,
serenade the world, their notes aspire,
as petals bloom and fragrances rise,
God's glory, too beautiful to disguise.

the wind's gentle touch, a divine caress,
whispering secrets of love's tenderness,
through every season, His glory prevails,
in vibrant colors and gentle gales.

so let us, like nature, joyfully sing,
praising God's glory in everything,
for in His creation, we find our place,
a reflection of His glorious grace.

in the depths of our souls, a flickering light,
God's glory within us, burning bright,
through trials and triumphs, it shall endure,
guiding our path, steadfast and pure.

in moments of doubt, it ignites our faith,
reminding us His presence is never late,
through every challenge, His glory shines,
a beacon of hope, a love that entwines.

when darkness threatens to hold us tight,
His glory dispels the shadows of the night,
for even in our weakness, His strength is found,
His glory, an everlasting crown.

so let us rejoice in His radiant grace,
and seek His glory in every place,
for through our poems, our voices rise,
singing of God's glory, beyond the skies.

bask in the glory of God. yes, i see God everywhere.

go buy oil


"and at midnight a cry was heard: ‘behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!" matt 25:6

last night my pillow was again drenched with tears as i lie in helpless worship and adoration of our Lord and all He gave for us.  He was no longer "just Jesus."  He was again "my Jesus."  it had been too long since i had stopped just to love on my Lord, and love was what was needed.  the majesty - the splendor was all laid before me and i was just there to worship.

i was again the shulamite girl longing for her true love.  i'm not positive about all the symbolism in "song of solomon," but even though her heart was awake, there came a point where she hesitated getting up to let her Lord in because it meant getting her feet dirty again.  when she got to the door her love had already turned away.  i do not want to be the one opening up my door and find my Lord missing.

the midnight call has been going out for years now; every since the revelation 12 sign was manifested in the heavens a full seven years ago.  we have been watching expectantly with longing for our Lord's coming.  but wait.  He has tarried; perhaps longer than many were prepared for.  "though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry." hab 2:3

many have not brought enough oil to last while He tarries.  they have failed to bathe under the fountain that drips forth His love?  they have become concerned about things rather than our Lord.  it's not about all the great things we have done for our Lord.  it's about the Lord Himself.  all the crowns and accolades are merely trophies to cast at His feet and we bow to adore Him in His splendor.  it's ALL about Jesus.

you see, nations will come and bow down before Him.  it is written, "as I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God." rom 14:11  those that deny Him and fight against Him - those whose portion is in this life - they too must acknowledge that He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

sometimes i wish i could be like the apostle paul when he said he could "almost" wish his self accursed from Christ if it could save his brothers according to the flesh.  but none of us can sacrifice for another.  we must each bring our own sacrifice to the Lord.  we must each draw from the well of life and then, and only then, can it spring from forth from us to others.  and nobody's getting any of my oil to make up their deficit.  i love you all but i love my Lord more!

all i guess i'm really saying is fill up on the Lord.  draw from Him the strength to endure theses times.  draw as they did when the romans fed christians to the lions for entertainment.  draw as they did when they were burned at the stake for refusing to denounce their Lord.  we all have no strength of our own to claim; only a love and obedience that would challenge even the very gates of hell.  a cry that says i am my beloved's and He is mine.

it's love that will get us there; love and love alone.  not the distorted world view of love which accepts all and judges nothing, but God's perfect love which disciplines, chastens and corrects our wrong ideas.  just maybe we could all spend some time loving on our Lord, making sure we have enough oil to get us there and more.  he has told us that we could do nothing without Him.  spend time with Him and our faces will come out shining as did moses's.  carry His peace with you wherever you go and whatever you do.

i remember a story of corrie ten boom who was in a plane that almost crashed and while everyone around her were panicking, she simply carried the trust of Jesus on her face.  after all the panic was over and the plane was safe, someone sat down next to her and asked her how she had such peace during the turmoil.  she had opportunity to witness about the Lord to that person and see them saved.  she had the peace that passes understanding.  she had oil burning in her lamp and those with eyes to see noticed.

even now i perceive a new song is being heralded in heaven.  "and they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals; for You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation" rev 5:9

the midnight hour is here.  have you got your reserve of oil with you?
