praying hands

let us pray for all the people who are in harms way

Praying Hands

I had a dream with my lord CHRIST 
He touched my head, not once but twice.
I felt my body jump up in bed
I saw the nail holes in his hands that bled.

I felt the power of his healing hands
He showed it to me so I could understand.
With faith in our hearts he will heal
And his hands you will feel.

I awoke that morning with the spirit inside
Those praying hands I had to find.
I found a figurine of his hands
And put it upon my night stand.

In my prayers that I say day and night
I squeeze those hands with all my might.
Now when I feel life s pressures are getting me down
I touch those hands that I had found.

And when I feel an ailment or two
Then I know what I must do.
I touch those hands and say a prayer
This is the bond that we share.

There is no other feeling like the love of GOD
When you have him in your heart.

the creator

The Creator

He made the universe with the wave of his hand
then decided to change the plan.
he made this planet of dirt and stone
but it could not be left alone.

He needed something to quench his thirst
from the ground water did burst.
he made this planet two thirds water
and put in creatures to complete the order.

He felt all that he created was a great plan.
then he decided to make man.
man was the most difficult challenge
of all his creations
for it had to be of great sensation.

man would live on all the creatures
that he created, in land, air, or sea.
to be able to think, with the brain
that they was given,
and control all life forms that was living.

He decided to give man a heart of gold
and then added a thing called soul.

he gave the heart a two fold purpose
one to live, and the other to feel
all sorts of different sensations.
then he added all the other spices
love, sorrow, jealousy, bitterness and hate.

but the strongest two was LOVE AND FAITH.
now that the heart was complete
he took the soul, and he did treat.
he treated it with all that he had put into
the mind and heart.
this is how we got our start.

now that all this was done
in the future he would give his SON.
His son may have many different names
but he is GOD just the same.

stories of hope series # 15 – the runaway

Stories of hope series #15 – the runaway

She had run away from home and wandered the streets all alone
Fourteen years old with no place to go , while predators
And pimps would put on their show.
Offers of warmth and food to eat to help her get off the streets.
Promises and enticements being made , just so that
They could get laid.
They don’t care the age or what they have gone thru
It’s a money making machine built for two.
They know that runaways are easy prey so at train
And bus stations they do stay.
Now this runaway was as smart as a whip and at fourteen
Butts she could kick.
She had heard tales of other runaways , and in her mind they did stay.
She came to New York with one purpose in mind
To find her brother in the shortest of time.
Taken by the step father after the divorce and in the
Big city they could get lost.
Authorities searched for him to no avail , while
He avoided capture and avoided jail.
But she knew a lot about him more than anyone knew.
He loved to sing and play the guitar , so her search
Would be clubs and bars.
With a picture of both of them in her hand
Searching Manhattan was her plan.
Day and night she would search , forgetting about hunger and thirst.
Then after a week of hunger and pain , she spotted them getting off of a train.
Walking far behind them so not to be seen , she was close to
Fulfilling her dream.
Now that she knew where they was staying , she informed the police
Who would be waiting.
When he came out they arrested him on sight as her brother
Cried with delight .
When the police asked her how did she survive
She said : GOD was by her side , As she began to cry.

Faith , Hope , and Love is the key !

stories of hope series – swimmers dreams #14

Stories of hope series – swimmers dreams #14

I once knew a boy named Kevin and I watched him grow
And people would always say he was “ mighty slow “.
He didn’t learn as fast as others and they would tease
Him because he had no sisters or brothers.
So without anyone to play or talk with , he would go
Into his little world that he had created in his mind
Where he would spend his time.
But in school there was two things that he was good at
He could swim like a fish and climb like a cat and no one
Could beat him at any of that.
One of the coaches saw this and called him to the side.
Asking him ‘ how would you like to join our swim team ?
Man! What a surprise !
He joined the swim team and would swim every day , and now
Other kids would talk to him and ask him to play.
He would show others how to jump high and climb like a cat
Till they became very good at that.
The coach always watched him and thought that he could
Put it to use , and how he would show his teammates how
To get more bounce on the diving boards and to do their
Twists and turns in the air, and against his school none could compare.
Since he was the fastest swimmer on the team he asked the coach
If he could try something different with his teammates breathing techniques.

He noticed that when they was about to dive in the pool they would take
A short breath of air then dive.
But by filling your lungs completely it would mean less times coming up
To breathe and saves valuable seconds , and when they did come up
It was to fill their lungs completely.
The coach took five volunteers and with his stop watch timed each one
at their normal pace.
Then he did it again with what Kevin said about larger intakes of air.
And their times were cut 10 to 20 seconds.
The team became so successful they competed state wide
They won so many trophies that another wall they had to find.
Because of Faith , Love and Hope – multiple swimmers dreams came true
And it will “only start if you want it to “.

never give up

We cannot choose what life gives us , but we can
Choose how to live our lives.
We can choose spiritual or material.
Choosing material we have to cheat , lie , and connive
To achieve our goals,
Choosing spiritual we leave everything in the hands of GOD
But we tend to forget that GOD said : “help yourself
And I will help you “
So why not get the best of both worlds and set your goals in life
And strive to achieve them with the help of the LORD.
Tell him your goal for the day and ask him to help you attain it.
“ NEVER GIVE UP “ on yourself and definitely never
Give up on GOD.
Everything comes in his time , not ours.
Success is a slow painful learning experience , so you can know
What to do when a particular situation arises.
We can achieve the material things without having to cheat ,
Lie and connive and hurting people along the way so you
Can have some better days.
We have to be thankful for the basic things in life , such as Health
Which is the most important of all , because we then get bitter and angry
With everything .as long as we have a roof over our heads , clothes on our backs
And food to eat and water to drink .
We’ll be fine , it just takes a little time.
Just remember “ NEVER GIVE UP “ and maybe share our good fortune with others.

the search

I did some soul searching the other day

And I asked GOD to come my way.
I asked him to harden my heart
Because these emotions were tearing me apart.

Every time I see or read about a child abused
I want to jump on them, but it’s of no use.
It seems that at times the law is on their side
And it just makes me want to cry.

So many injustices that I see, but no one
There to help, except maybe you and me.
If we could find a way to save all
these little angels that GOD has given
And to make life worth living.

To give hope to the children of the world
Is something that many of us struggle to see
But we know “ that will never be”.

So if we could save just a few
of these boys and girls
It may be the start of a brand new world.

If we could make a global holiday
Called “save a child today”.
Which is just a thought until
There’s a better way.
If each county and town in every country
could adopt one child
Then there lives would be worth while.

But I guess it’s not really that I want
My heart hardened
but just a solution
To a crisis that this world refuses to see

a fathers torment

·
A Fathers Torment
We hide in the shadows in obscurity
We are the fathers of the children that you see
Women are the life line, that we all know.
Since the beginning of conception and
Throughout our lives, we have to thank them
For becoming our mothers and our wives.
Men plant the seed, but on the woman’s
tube the children do feed.
Without the female there is no life
So as men we have to think twice.
At times though, we feel empty and forgotten
For all that we do in a child’s life.
When we play games with them, teach them
And give them moral support
It is something that is given, not something that is bought.
We will go back into the shadows when our hearts
Are about to burst, and this is what makes the pain so much worse.
They say that a man is not supposed to cry
But you and I know that’s an old fashioned lie.
We bleed, we cry, we feel heartache too
We are human, this is what we do.
Any man can be a father, but every man can not be a dad.
And I look upon that, and it makes me very sad.
This child has our blood and we helped to give it life
But there is no credit given to the husband, ” just the wife“.
We may be just the father, but we share in their lives too.
All we ask is recognition of the things that we do.
I recall at your birth, when I walked into the delivery room
Your eyes called me, like a mystical, magical tune.
Your eyes searched me out like a rooster for the rising sun
And looking in your eyes, I knew you was the one.
This is a fathers torment that I guess we all go through.
But without your love and dependence, what am I going to do.
I love you more than you’ll ever know
Look in my eyes, and there it will show.
And to your mother she must know:
The key number in this world is TWO, without me there is no you.

give me their strength

every day i pray to GOD to heal this affliction that i have
and i know there are so many people in much , much worse
condition than i .
but like most every day i get up and try-
( help yourself and i will help you )
and i know that much is true.
help me GOD as i struggle in this life , to try to be
a good man , a father , and a husband to my wife.
by thinking and writing i ease my pain
and since i’ve been doing this , my life has never
been the same.
i cannot help others if i cannot help myself
and on my problems i cannot dwell.
i’ve seen and read stories of people who have overcome
some with lost legs and have now begun to run.
hundreds of thousands of stories of people
who have been blessed , after being put through
a long and rigerous test.
GOD clear and strenghten my mind so that i can do the same
and write your poetry and praise and sing your name.
i may not have a physical disability the same as them
but i have so many words to write which never seem to end.
the stories are the stories that i write about who can
continue to get up and shout
” my GOD is my spirit and i will overcome
there are so many things that i’ve yet to be done.”
and with strength in their bones and love in their hearts
they finish what they did start.

what is a daughter

 

What is a daughter to me ?

I’ll tell you in one word “ LIFE “

Without someone’s daughter there

Would be no man !

!Why is it so difficult to understand !

It wouldn’t matter if they are straight or gay

God made us different in so many ways

She can cook , clean, take care of a house

Of that we have no doubt.

She becomes your soul mate , a wife , a lover and

Like her there is no other.

Then she gets pregnant and brings, new life

Into this world – and it matters not if it’s a boy or girl.

A mothers love will become endless , and there are

Np boundaries to the extent that they will go ,to protect them

this I know !

She is life in every form and not one to be scorned

They can be the Moodiest creatures on this earth

Especially after giving birth.

No matter who s daughter she may be

Her love is shown naturally.

JESUS i come to you

Jesus I come to you with my heart in my hand
Jesus I come to you because you understand
My heart is crying and broken in two and
I don’t know just what to do.
The world is changing and mankind has lost
Its feelings of love.
All they think of is the love of money and what it could bring
And they don’t care about any other thing.
They have lost compassion for their fellow man
And greed and hunger is their plan.
slavery has existed since the beginning of time
And rapes of children you will find.
Innocent animals are being slaughtered every day , some for food and many for pay.
No longer can you tell who your enemy is for they are
In civilian disguise and hide in their lies.
Why is it that man wants to seek power and try to be like you
If they had your powers , they still wouldn’t know what to do !
They would have to go into the hearts of man -and seek the love and compassion that “they could never understand.”
JESUS I come to you
As I had done since my birth , for you are my GOD
And have given my life worth.
