Be Careful Where You Walk . . .


Been awhile since I posted any of my Brother’s poetry. I was looking through some that I had saved from his Facebook page and found this one I love. Please also check out his Book of Poetry, The Journey Home, A Collection of Poetry which you can find by clicking on the book title.


“Be careful where you walk my son this world is dark with sin, always look ahead of you, for yesterday has been.”

“Do not look back as Lot’s wife did; you see it was her fault, because she did not let the world go she became a pillar of salt.

“Always pray God makes a way on this journey of your life, be kind and love your fellow man; son thrive to do what’s right.”

“Walk by faith and do HIS word HE will direct your path; stay far away from evil men and thing’s which just don’t last.”

“Be a man of GOD my son, don’t ever quit or sway you know right now I’m proud of you because you listen to what I say.”

“I’m glad that your my son,” I said, “But you are GOD’S son too; point the world to Jesus, be kind in what you do.”

“So be careful where you walk,” I said “And to your heart be true;” he said, “Daddy you be careful because I follow after you.”

PROLOGUE TO DAILY PROVERBS:

“Joyful is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gains understanding. For wisdom is more profitable than silver, and her wages are better than gold. Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. She offers you long life in her right hand, and riches and honor in her left. She will guide you down delightful paths; all her ways are satisfying. Wisdom is a tree of life to those who embrace her; happy are those who hold her tightly.” – Proverbs 3:13-18.

Hebrews: The Atoning Work of Jesus

“I was forgiven but still shut out. Atonement provides both forgiveness and reconciliation.”
This is a great article on atonement, something you don’t see taught often, by our Sister-in-Christ, Beth Andrews from her website, Deeper Roots. She is a great exhorter and teacher, you WILL be blessed by visiting her site!

Nothing but the Blood of Jesus - Lyrics, Hymn Meaning and Story

Last night I let my granddaughter play in the bathtub with washable paint. When it was time to get out she looked around and announced, “I made a mess!” I replied, “Yes, you made a pretty mess, but we can clean it up,” as I grabbed the pop-up wipes. She wanted to help clean up, but with her still paint-covered fingers she just spread the red paint even more. I had to clean her up before we could finish cleaning the bathtub.

The author of Hebrews identified yet another reason that God sent Jesus to earth – “That He might make atonement for the sins of the people” (2:17b). That’s not a common word in the non-Jewish church today, but it’s the heart and soul of Jesus’ ministry. Atonement is the work of Jesus on the cross by which our sins are forgiven. I don’t know about you, but I…

The Gospel According To – Billy Sunday


Billy Sunday WPWilliam Ashley Sunday (November 19, 1862 – November 6, 1935) was an American outfielder in baseball’s National League and widely considered the most influential American evangelist during the first two decades of the 20th century. Converting to evangelical Christianity in the 1880s, Sunday left baseball for the Christian ministry. He gradually developed his skills as a pulpit evangelist in the Midwest and then, during the early 20th century, he became the nation’s most famous evangelist with his colloquial sermons and frenetic delivery. Sunday held widely reported campaigns in America’s largest cities, and he attracted the largest crowds of any evangelist before the advent of electronic sound systems. He was often accused of being too harsh of which he never apologized for stating that “the absolute truth can be harsh.”

The Gospel According to Billy Sunday

What does converted mean? It means completely changed. Converted is not synonymous with reformed.  Reforms are from without-conversion from within.  Conversion is a complete surrender to Jesus. It’s a willingness to do what he wants you to do. Unless you have made a complete surrender and are doing his will it will avail you nothing if you’ve reformed a thousand times and have your name on fifty church records.

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, in your heart and confess him with your mouth and you will be saved. (Romans 10:9). God is good. The plan of salvation is presented to you in two parts. Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth. Many of you here probably do Believe. Why don’t you confess? Now own up. The truth is that you have a yellow streak. Own up, business men, and business women, and all of you others. Isn’t it so? Haven’t you got a little saffron? Brave old Elijah ran like a scared deer when he heard old Jezebel had said she would have his head, and he beat it. And he ran to Beersheba and lay down under a juniper tree and cried to the Lord to let him die. The Lord answered his prayer, but not in the way he expected. If he had let him die he would have died with nothing but the wind moaning through the trees as his funeral dirge. But the Lord had something better for Elijah. He had a chariot of fire and it swooped down and carried him into glory without his ever seeing death.

So he says he has something better for you–salvation if he can get you to see it. You’ve kept your church membership locked up. You’ve smiled at a smutty story. When God and the Church were scoffed at you never peeped, and when asked to stand up here you’ve sneaked out the back way and beat it. You’re afraid and God despises a coward–a mutt. You cannot be converted by thinking so and sitting still.

Maybe you’re a drunkard, an adulterer, a prostitute, a liar; won’t admit you are lost; are proud. Maybe you’re even proud you’re not proud, and Jesus has a time of it.

Jesus said: “Come to me,” not to the Church; to me, not to a creed; to me, not to a preacher; to me, not to an evangelist; to me, not to a priest; to me, not to a pope; “Come to me and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28). Faith in Jesus Christ saves you, not faith in the Church.

You can join church, pay your share of the preacher’s salary, attend the services, teach Sunday school, return thanks and do everything that would apparently stamp you as a Christian–even pray–but you won’t ever be a Christian until you do what God tells you to do.

That’s the road, and that’s the only one mapped out for you and for me. God treats all alike. He doesn’t furnish one plan for the banker and another for the janitor who sweeps out the bank. He has the same plan for one that he has for another. It’s the law–you may not approve of it, but that doesn’t make any difference.

I Am The Vine!

apart from him 2
Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.” – John 15:4-5 (NLT)

God Save, Bless America!

Pray, Pray, Pray for the United States of America.

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, The people He has chosen as His own inheritance. The LORD looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men. From the place of His dwelling He looks On all the inhabitants of the earth; He fashions their hearts individually; He considers all their works. No king is saved by the multitude of an army; A mighty man is not delivered by great strength. A horse is a vain hope for safety; Neither shall it deliver any by its great strength. Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, On those who hope in His mercy, To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waits for the LORD; He is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in Him, Because we have trusted in His holy name. Let Your mercy, O LORD, be upon us, Just as we hope in You.” – Psalm 33:12-22.

God bless, save america
