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.

he fills me up

My heart is warmer and my soul is on fire
My spiritual life is climbing much higher
I found myself after searching for so long
It’s always been where it belonged.

The cross I carry around my neck has filled
Me with the greatest love yet.
I hold it in my hand and I kiss it all day
And to him I do pray.

My prayers are answered every time that I speak
And only him do I seek.
No longer do I have an emptiness where all
My fears I did hide, just an exhilarating feeling deep inside.
Like an empty bottle that is filled with wine
He fills my spirit with a love divine.

Call his name when you are in despair, and your problems
With him you share.
You’ll feel a calmness in your mind, and the relief
Which is hard to find.
Put it in his hands and believe with all your heart
And he will tear the problems apart.

safe in his hands

It is only natural for you to cry when someone
Passes to the other side.
Thoughts will come into your mind of memories they left behind.
We are here for a short spell and in others hearts we will dwell.
Like a puff of smoke we will pass , for we have done
What GOD had asked.
We taught and showed you the strength of GOD
And put him into your safe heart.
He is the strength of faith , hope , and love
And no matter what disasters hit our land
He has us safe in his hands.

i hold this cross

LORD I cannot thank you for all that you’ve done
My day was dark and you brought out the sun.
With all my worries and my tears – you took away all my fears.
I held the cross from my chain and asked for blessings in your name.
When life becomes like a tornado tossing everything around
You held me firm on the ground.
I hold this cross in my hand cause my life you understand
This cross is your symbol of life , faith , love and hope
And this shows us how to cope.
Such a small little cross which holds billions of hearts
And with the twelve Apostles it did start.
A cross so small above my heart – I kiss it daily for my day to start.
From the Sacred Heart of Jesus that has endured the ravages of time
To make this gift “ yours and mine “ .

his word

JESUS said I would be saved if I listened
And changed my ways.
The Father sent down his begotten son
For there was so much work to be done.
Christianity would not come overnight
We had to stand up to “ tyranny “ and fight.
Look at the word Christianity and my name
You’ll plainly see.
I look to you now Lord on bended knees
And to you I do plead
Just give me a chance to show I’ve changed
For there is no other way , cause in my heart
You will forever stay.
You have made the ultimate sacrifice
When you gave up your own life.
Your love and belief in the father above
Who had given you his tender love
To fight the devil on his ground , and try to
Weaken and put you down.
He tried to entice you with gold , diamonds and pearls
And even tried to offer you his world , but you had
Stood your ground . And any weaknesses he had never found.
Now I can never be as strong as you , I know that and so do you.
Yet I will give it my every being and every fiber of my soul
To try to keep all evil thoughts on hold .
Although it is hard with this world in such turmoil
And slavery , hypocrisy and wars still exist , and
Hatred in our midst.
We tend to fall out of your grace in this time
And in this place , but LORD I am trying
To follow your words , cause I know that no one can
Follow the path that you led , or the pains and the
Blood that you bled.
Strengthen me for I am weak , and build me up
To my peak.

my blinds were taken away

Blessed was the day that I walked the streets alone
No family , no friends , no home
With five cents in my pocket and my clothes torn and tattered
And death seemed like the only solution that mattered.
I would ask people for help and they would turn their backs.
No one knew me or what I had gone through , but they was
Quick to judge and to put me down , and once in a while
Throw a coin on the ground.

I went to the top of the bridge ready to jump , when I heard
A voice say “ don’t do that – for you are my son “
I looked around , but there was no one there
Just a puff of smoke hanging in the air.
“ there are tests that everyone goes through , just to see
What they will do “

When you was about to take that plunge you asked
For forgiveness and GOD heard your plea , and decided to send me.
Still looking at the puff of smoke when it started to take shape
Of an Angel with the most beautiful face , and all in white
From head to toe and the face with such a beautiful glow.

As it stood there I could see the wings on it s back
And as that hand touched me , I saw my old life come back.
GOD said you never did anything wrong my son – it was just a test of time
Of when you would call me and take away your blinds.

Jesus and John the baptist

The most beautiful sound I ever heard was when
Jesus spoke his loving words
“ believe in me as I believe in you “
Those words ring so true..
He has been with us since our birth
He is our savior here on earth.
Two thousand years age God gave us a sacrificial lamb
He gave us his son so we could learn and understand.
Christianity was created with his name , and Christmas
Did just the same for Gabriel is the Christmas angel
Who God sent to tell Elizabeth of the birth of John
And then to Mary to tell the birth of Jesus.
Now God made John a special man to preach of Christ s
Coming throughout the land.
John would baptize all who was seeking salvation
And to the wicked he would preach hell and damnation.
When Jesus came to be baptized John stood in awe
This was the one he had been waiting for.
John felt unqualified to do what Jesus had asked of him
And told Jesus “ I need to be baptized by you “
But Jesus had to be baptized to endorse John s “ ministry of baptism “
When Jesus head came out of the water – the heavens opened
And the spirit of God descended upon him.
‘ this is my son whom I love – with him I am well pleased “
The people who witnessed this extraordinary scene
Were astonished and began to believe.
Now when I pray on Christmas day , I give thanks to
These three in my own way.
Gabriel the Christmas messenger , John the Baptist who opened
Up the path for all to see that “ Jesus was sent to save you and me“.

i feel his presence

I felt his presence around me and felt a chill run up my spine, showing me all the beauties that he created for you and I .
He has taught me to love my fellow man and to give
The helpless a gentle and loving hand.
Every time I had fallen and gone astray
He was there beside me to lead and guide the way.
So this is going to be the song to sing for the people
Who don’t have anything.

LORD ! I put myself in your hands cause my needs you understand
You will give me what I need just so that I can breathe.
My needs may not be so great , but you give me what it takes
You give enough to feed and clothe me and a little extra too
To do the things that I must do.
You say “help yourself and I will help you “
And that is just what I will do .
when I am sick and feeling weak , you build
Me up to my peak.
You have never let me down for your presence is all around.
I thank you LORD each and every day that you help and guide me
And show me the way.

the apostles chapel

Blessed was the day that I walked the streets alone
No family , no friends , no home
With five cents in my pocket and my clothes torn and tattered
And death seemed like the only solution that mattered.
I would ask people for help and they would turn their backs
No one knew me or what I had gone through
But they was quick to judge and to put me down
And once in a while throw a coin on the ground.
I went to the top of the bridge ready to jump
When I heard a voice say “ don’t do that for you are my son “
I looked around and there was no one there
Just a puff of smpke hanging in the air.
“ there are tests that everyone goes through ,just to see
What they would do.
When you was about to take the plunge you asked for forgiveness
And God heard your plea and decided to send me.
Still looking at the puff of smoke – it started to take shape
Of an angel with the most beautiful face , dressed all in white
From head to toe , and the face with such a glow.
As it stood there I could see the wings upon its back
And as that hand touched me , I felt my old life come back.
“ you never did anything wrong my son it’s just a test of time “
Of when you would call me and take away your blinds.
From this moment on your life will change and nothing
Will ever be the same.
Sooner or later everyone will call upon God
Whether near or whether far.
The gift of redemtion God has given to you
Because your heart is pure and your thoughts are true.
Believe in me as I believe in you , and a better life will come true.
The Apostles chapel is down below , and this is where you must go
And the changes you need you will know.
