Keep Driving

butterflyA young lady was driving with her father. They came upon a storm, and the young lady asked her father, “What should I do?”
He said. “Keep on driving.”
On up a few feet, she noticed that eighteen wheelers were also pulling over. She told her dad. “I must pull over, I can barely see ahead. It is terrible, and everyone is pulling over!”
Her father told her, “Don’t give up, just keep driving!”
As the storm intensified, she never stopped driving, and soon she could see a little more clearly. After a couple of miles she was again on dry land, and the sun came out. Her father said, “Now you can pull over and get out.”
She asked, “But why now?”
He said, “Because now that you are through the storm, you can get out and see the view-you can look back and see all the people who gave up and are still stuck in the storm.”

MY GOD REIGNS

Some say the mind is a terrible thing to waste

They never had to box the devil standing face to face

He comes in all forms in all shapes and in all sizes

His mission is to destroy the destiny God laid inside us

Some days I have joy

Some days I have sorrow

The enemies plan has succeeded

If I don’t look forward to tomorrow

I use to fall for his tricks, his games, and his demise

The Lord has come to save me

Yes! Jehova has heard my cries

He lifted me up out of a horrible pit

Everything that happened to me that was good

You better believe God did it

He even gave me peace of mind

Jehova Shalom is His name

It was right there in the wilderness

Where Jesus put the enemy to shame

I no longer feel defeated

I no longer feel ashamed

The enemy has been defeated

Yes! My God reigns

This World is not our Home

John 14:1-3

“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.  And you know the way to where I am going.”

An Empty Soul

Oftentimes we get so angry with people when they lack certain things such as loyalty, respect, temperance, and love. I have come to find out that if we are not taught certain things or have asked God to ignite these characteristics within us then we are just mere mortals carrying an empty soul with the potential of being a wonderful person.
