    Preacher daughter coming

    Preacher daughter coming

    Preacher daughter coming



    Just goes to show you can't judge a book by its cover

    My baby has fallen into the system

    My home is at peace

    My life isn't spiraling for the moment

    and my children seems to obey

    But before the walls held countless of arguments, fights

    and depression

    I speak of a love all must feel

    I spoke of a life of all wants to have

    but on the inside was us

    The devil roaming around like a lion had devoured us

    Until you saw nothing left but our feet

    Come Friday it will be fifteen days since we haven't been together

    Nothing but the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures keeping

    me sane

    I haven't even complained

    I just took charge of the house, the kids and the bills

    I just man up so to speak

    All around me is what I hear is despair

    and the ones that are oppress

    We all need faith in order to get to the next level

    In the book of Hebrew it tells of many people that had faith and what their reward was

    But what does my faith tells me

    No I haven't stored my treasure upon this Earth and no I am not concern about getting to Heaven

    My concern is now living what God has intended for me to live

    Lord I use to say "Why have you forsaken me"

    Why does my family turn a deaf ear?

    Or why do my friends stab me in the back with their malicious gossip?

    Lord give me a sign, give me a sign

    and this is what he gave me

    Matthew 6:33 says Keep on then,seeking first the kingdom and his righteousness, and all the other things will be added to you

    I realized that I couldn't make it without my Lord

    I realized that no matter where I turn I'd always call on him

    I didn't want the wrath of Jehovah upon my house

    Praying to him for deliverance, but still carried on like the fools he spoke about

    He grew tired of us

    He disciplined us, he showing us his true power that so many don't believe

    He humbled us, he humbled us

    So many of our love ones has turn their back on us

    Our friends seems to talk down of us

    But still we hold on to this rocky relationship

    as I read on in the book of Matthew

    It tells me of hyprocrites and then further down in the scriptures it says

    Go in thruough the narrow gate, because broad and spacious is the road leading of into destruction, and many are the ones going thru it........

    Yes we both went through it many times until Jehovah didn't want to hear

    He knows our heart so therefore we are in this Hell

    Things are no longer at our disposal

    The sun beats our broken backs

    Pleasure is no longer given but is earned

    Whereas narrow is the gate and cramped the road leading off into life,a nd few are the ones finding it verses 14 of Matthew

    Yes we are the few trying to walk in the narrow

    You told me of a change

    No more hanging out, no more carelessness of your money

    Everything that I use to complain about I won't ever complain again

    I dismiss it

    I don't believe it because of your backsliding

    Dividing us

    once again with your broken promises

    Don't promise me the world and can't give it

    I don't want the world I just want you and the kids

    Please my love don't let the world swallow us whole again

    Let's change our far weather friends and embrace the ones

    that are doing good and righteous in God's eyes

    Let's do this for us, for our kids sake

    They deserve a home of peace and love because God is love

    Your coming home friday I anticipate

    I can't wait and greeting you at the door will be a woman you have

    seen in the beginning

    No more of my disturbed spirit, but a peaceful one

    I will not let the Devils evil demise get to us

    The Devil want us to fail but through Jehovah guidance will we seek out his glory

    This battle is not mine, this battle is not mine

    I said this battle is not mine

    I give it to you Lord

    I give it to you Lord

    I will stop leaning and having faith in Men

    but will learn to lean and wait on you Lord

    Oh lord thank you for the lesson we both are now learning

    On the road to Damacus is where you had to blind us and lord

    we know we will never regain full sight

    But we ask that if you see fit to show your children some mercy

    Some mercy

    Some mercy

    Because we need you, we need you, we need you

    Now I am

    stronger

    wiser

    and my running this race has just begun.........

    to be continued.........

    Baby Girl, we've all lamented the loss of benefits provided by GRACE. Amazingly, you have maintained a powerful faith throughout. Trials and REPROOF are necessary, prayer essential, GOD, priceless.

    the transparancy of this piece is captivating. Thank you for letting us in. We I appreciate most about the trials and tribulations is God's ability to show me just how much strength, resiliance and drive he gave me. I pray he does the same for you...

    Sometimes we find ourselves in positions where we just have to lay everything down and
    pray to God and have faith. Its through him that we find the strength to weather the storms.

    Thank you for sharing this with us. I am truly enjoying your pen

    Be Blessed
