  1. Interesting. He "slipped away" to "somewhere pure"... If humans could view death in this way, a slipping away to somewhere pure, where we ourselves may become uncorrupted and 'pure', there may be less fear involved in facing death. Encouraging poem. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Hi and thanks for your reply! Good point, and it's my understanding that it's the Spirit that works this and all things of God within the believer, just as He "works in you to desire and do His good pleasure" (Phl 2:13). I believe that walking in "all that pertains to life and godliness" is by the Spirit using our new nature ("new man"), which is the case for all who are truly believers.

  6. This is resting in other arms an infant again. Thank you for sharing. I am grieving, feeling helpless, and your poem touched my heart. I am a child of God and reverting to letting myself be held in his arms.

  8. I don't believe cats are going to Heaven. I don't. But I just decided to leave the cat with his boy for this ballad, lol. I didn't actually think much about that.

  9. I don't know either...Haha. I raise a bit of a challenge to that...The Bible doesn't specifically say that cats won't be in Heaven, but in Revelation 22: 15 it says the following: For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. Maybe that includes cats? I'm not sure. But please let me know if I'm wrong. I'm merely sharing my view of it.

  20. Lord I don't know what to reply, so I said. But to say; Thank you Jesus. I'd testify I haven't had worries, not from the very moment i was born again, but the very moment I told Him; “Lord, I don't care, do what you want, still I'll love you.”

  21. I'm sorry, William. Writings are only allowed in certain places. I've moved a couple others. Next time, you could leave a link to the article or just use a portion and ask specifically for others to comment.

  22. Hi, and appreciate your instructional comment! Even though gratitude comes most difficulty during the trials, it carries most meaningfully during the "hardness" (2Ti 2:3); as it always hurts least and teaches us the most in patiently waiting it out, by "casting" it on Him" (1Pe 5:7).

  23. I often take things for granted until they are gone. Then I realize how valuable they really were to me. Thank you for that wonderful reminder to always be thankful. Even when the day is bad there is so much to be thankful for.

  26. Well Don't try to comfort yourself okay, rather let our weaknesses draw us closer to God in Faith. All it takes is “doubt,” to hinder God's will our lives. It'll be good if you don't. Jesus came to restore our relationship, and a relationship that crashes from time to time is not really a strong foundation for God to build upon, we ought to grow in God's spirit. I can't remember where it say in the scriptures, but still; “ He that is born of God cannot sin, because God's seed remains in Him.” You only need not to hinder God's res

  28. Don't worry, I don't mind. However, it'll be good to know that Jesus came to destroy the curse of sin and death, and the delivery power of God's word is complete. I understand t hat you're saying. Still, when we are saved, we don't automatically become strong, we are born again of God's spirit as children, until we spend more time in His word to become filled with His life, only then we become sons, unwavering. The the scriptures becomes ture, that; He who is born of God cannot sin because God's seeds remains in Him. You only.need to believe that Jesus came to destroy s

  29. Chris, I think you are being to hard on yourself. Sanctification is a process and we are all in it together. The Holy Spirit knows our weaknesses and He helps our infirmities. Jesus told Paul, "My strength is made perfect in your weakness." Again, I commend you for telling the truth and exposing yourself to others. Do you know my dear brother this takes courage? I love real people who are not ashamed to tell the truth on themselves. Be encouraged, the more you yield to the Holy Spirit, the more the change that is taking place on the inside, will become more evident. Love you to li

  31. Thanks for the story. During difficult times, this verse keeps me going: "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you." Isaiah 43:2 NKJV

  48. Donna, WoW! Thank U so much for sharing that. I had situations that I wasn't experiencing healing from, and I did a family tree that took me thru beahviors of my family and how that shaped my life. It showed me things that could only be revealed to me by God and I was able to dig those roots up I know what my triggers are now, and instead of filling them with the old sinful behaviors that I would to suppress those feelings, I am learning to depend on God and trust Him and the truth of His Word! The struggle is real though lol, but much easier is the struggle when God is helping carry the loa
