Before

When I think about how Awesome my Father is It blows my mind!

Before He created anything He knew me-He knew me! I was with Him and in Him Before

Hallelujah

Before I was on His mind in His heart spirit and soul

Before I was with my great and awesome Creator He knew  me and He chose me

He called me Before

I can imagine Him kicking the ground and using the dust to create the first man

I was there with Him in Him Hallelujah

How awesome my  God is even now He knows me

Among the billions upon the earth He knows my voice from all of the others

He knows me and loves me greatly He knows my every thought

Even Before I had a thought He knew me while the earth was dark and void and empty He knew me

It’s such a wonderful thing to be known by God and to know  His great love!wp-1457879516127.jpeg

I Can Only Imagine

I can only imagine oh Lord that day in the garden when You went alone to pray.
I can only imagine the things that pressed You down and weighed so heavy upon You . 

I know You could see us rejecting your Father ,I know You could see us lying and stealing and cheating treating others You love so much wrong.
I know You could see us hating each other as You toiled in prayer .I know You could see us as we all strayed .I know You could see the children being dragged away just as they started to play. I know You felt the pain as Mother’s cried again and again why,why did my child have to die.
I know You could hear the lies we often tell making promises we cannot keep.
I know You see us crying out for peace yet we fail to fall down at your feet. 

I know You can see us being hated because of the color of our skin,we fail to see we’re all kin because from Adam and Eve we did come.
In the garden late that night all of these things pressed You inside and out! I know You could see the violence that’s going on in our world today,and then to our Father You had to say not my will but yours I will obey. They need me Dear Father ,they need me each day so for their sins this price I will pay.

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit,

I Peter 3:18 NKJV

For He made Him who knew no sin to  be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

II Corinthians 5:21 NKJV

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

John 3:16 NKJV

“I Am Not INVISIBLE “!

My heart truly goes out to all of the Family Members who lost loved ones in the senseless killings by Police Officers. I cannot even imagine what they are going through as yet another Black Man is killed. What oh What will it take for our eyes to be opened ! If it were not for the Lord who is on my side,I could not handle any of this. Jesus sees,He knows and He cares Hallelujah!

In the midst of the sadness,anger and so much confusion I thank God He is the reason I can yet Praise Him

Love in Christ Pat

I am not Invisible

Can you not tell
I am different from you
But I Am not Invisible
Look at me and
maybe you’ll see
I Am not Invisible
My Ancestors were
treated miserably
And til this day
You cannot see
I Am Not Invisible
I am a black Man
With hopes and dreams
Look at me I am
Not Invisible
We are different in
So many ways and
Yet our hopes and
Dreams remain
Because God created
Us we deserve the
Same respect, peace
Compassion that
You’ve enjoyed for
Many years
I Am Not Invisible!

When You Rise

When you rise with the “Son” at the dawning of each day

Spread your wings and fly above this worlds unstable way

We are living in a time where trust is so rare; it’s causing so much confusion in the atmosphere

Kneel and pray as you live each day and allow God to lead you his way

We live in a world full of Glitz and Glamour where people are putting their life up for a gamble

The world has offered you a peek off he cliff and offered you the beauty you see as a gift

Then our hearts began to hunger for what our eyes did see and our minds are transformed into a sea of agony

We race so hard to consume this world’s beauty; we lose sight that God has called us to a duty

People are becoming so confused in their minds at an alarming rate; forgetting this world is just a temporary date

So many are looking to the world to bring them comfort and peace; with the world’s unrest all in the street

Let me remind you this world has nowhere for you stay; this is just a journey along life’s way

So what your eyes see one day they will see no more; the glitz and glamour and the great big roar

Rise each day with your faith and  focus so clear; so those you encounter will know Jesus is near

We can trust God regardless of where we are in of lives; because he is the one that made the awesome sacrifice

Don’t hang your integrity on the things of this world; hang it much higher to a place of love

When the world brings you hurt and pain allow his love to flow; open up your heart and let God help you grow

As the world offer us the glitz and the glamour; remember the cross the spear the nail and hammer

“AMERICA”

America,America
The Land of The Free
What is it that draws Me here?
To the Land that claims
You Are Free!
America,America
The land of the Free
Oh I have many things to offer
Once here you see
I watch them come
From every Shore
To America,America
The Land of the Free
Except the Haitians
Who were turned back to
the Sea
They came by boat loads
But were not Welcomed here
In America,America
The Land of the Free
Now there land is all torn
And Many bodies have been thrown
Into silent graves you see
Yet here in America we claim we
Claim we are Free
But the Haitians were never
Good enough for us you see
So God in his Mercy
I truly believe has Set Many Free
God is Wonderful,Understanding and full of love
You See
Many,Many Haitians are Free
God has I believed Set them Free
Without reaching The Shores
Of America,America
The Land of the Free
I am devastated you see
Could it be that they
look like me
Could be but it’s also
The Love in me
I Thank God,I Thank God
Many,Many Haitians are Free
Without Coming To
America,America
The land of the free
There is a “Freedom” you see
Unknown to Many
And it comes through Jesus Christ
For Heaven is true “Freedom” to Me!
