What is a bird who can't spread its wings and fly? Or a man who lies down in defeat and just wants to die. What becomes of an eagle that never gets to soar? Or what about a lion in the jungle who is afraid to roar? What sense does it make to be pregnant… Continue reading Bloom

“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18 Friday night, God checked me.

There once was a sister, Who found herself a mister. And you'd think she'd found a pot of gold. But some how she got it twisted, Or she just altogether missed it, Because she had to give up her soul.

The sum of tears that roll down my cheek,Few words that are far too painful to speak,When I can't lift my arms because I am weak. A grief-stricken heart that is now left hollow, For great trouble has come and robbed it with sorrow, When the pain in my loins runs deep to the marrow.… Continue reading This Offering
