Send Me An Angel

By: J. Hollis


I asked God to send me an angel and He sent me more than one. These angles take great joy in writing to us in which society has shunned.


All for the love of God's ministry to teach the gospel of Christ. Through their words, actions, and deeds, I've learned to walk upright without thinking twice. I give my heart to these angels for they truly show me they care.


I may never see them, but I know that they are there. I cannot always write them due to financial restraints. Yet, they never forget me on my birthday. These angels are heavenly saints.


ANGELS


As a way for me to say THANKS...

for the blessings they have bestowed in my heart, their light shines with a heavenly glow!!!

Morning Praise
By: J. Hollis


I woke up this morning and lifted the shade. I viewed the day that the Lord had made.


The sun was still in place; all nature was singing a song of His grace. The grass was still green and the flowers in bloom. The birds in the trees were singing their tune. Bright butterflies flying still and fluttering their wings. Bees gathered-pollen their treasures to bring.


I lifted my hands to join nature's praise. For the wonderful day that the Lord had made. 


"Lord help me," I prayed to do your will today. To spread your love around and point someone Your way.

Who But You?

By: J. Hollis 


Who But You could raise a hand and all we see would appear on land?

Who but You could speak a Word and even the elements obey what's said?


Who but You could take a handful of dust, blow on it and make all of us?

Who but You could be so kind to open up the eyes of the blind?


Who but You could take seven loaves of bread and feed four-thousand? Who but You could could cure leprosy? Who but You would care for a sinner like me?


Who would stand still to be crucified when you had the power to prove they lied? Who but You my Lord could raise a Savior from the grave? Just to see that mankind would be saved.


Who but You would prepare a place for me? No one else that I can see.

You Are My Everything
By: J. Stinson


“The silver is mine and the gold is mine, declares the Lord Almighty” (Haggai 2:8 NIV).


Lord, there is no greater love and

understanding than Yours.


No body or security guard

is able to provide protection 

the way that You do.


There aren’t enough banks

that could meet the need the

way that You can.


It’s just who You are and

how You operate, because

You are my everything.


My surroundings are filled

with peace that surpasses

all understanding.


Because of You, there is

joy bubbling over

deep down in my soul.

You hold the strength that

will carry me through

any storm.


There is no man or woman that

could ever supply what You can, 

because You are my everything.


I use to often wonder how

You can be everywhere at one time.


Then one day I started to read Your 

Word which explains You’re my everything.

No Deeper Love

By: J. Stinson


When I look back over my life, 

I truly understand that there is

“No Deeper Love” than my 

Heavenly Father’s.

What I perceived to be real love really wasn’t.

Foolishly at the demonic and deceitful hands 

of the enemy, I looked death straight

in the eye three times.

It was my Heavenly Father

who spoke, “No! Not yet, 

not my precious daughter.” 

Now I certainly understand that there is

“No Deeper Love”

Many nights not too long ago,

I paced the floor wondering

how my child and I would make it

through, but by morning, every single time, 

a blessing, an answer, and a new

ray of hope came to the rescue.

The father of all lies stopped by workplace one day and he found me.

This is what he said, “I saw you checking out that job vacancy board. 

You want more money huh? 

Do you think you’re qualified to move up that GS scale?” 

Well, I’ll be sitting in your interview too. 

I trembled just a little bit. But then I remember having 

several talks with my Heavenly Father who reminded me, 

“Daughter, I promised that I’ll never leave or forsake you."

I got the call, more than once, “Congratulations, you’ve been selected...”

How can I dare not believe that there is 

No Deeper Love?

There is no Human love that runs deeper than God’s love for you and me.

Romans 8:38-39 Says…

"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Keep On Walking

By: J. Stinson


“Again I saw that under the sun the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to the intelligent, nor favor to those with knowledge, but time and chance happen to them all”    

(Ecclesiastes 9:11 ESV).


Perhaps spoken words and disrespectful actions have hurt you. Keep on walking in forgiveness and don’t look back.


There are times when all the responsibilities and commitments seem overwhelming. Keep on walking, because there is so much power within you.


It just didn’t turn out the way you expected; it’s beyond your human understanding. Keep on walking, believing, and trusting that everything is in divine order.


They might not like you or what you have to say. Keep on walking in genuine love.


Our precious Lord and Savior endured much in order to do His Father’s will and so that we may have everlasting life.

Therefore, stand tall and keep on walking to see what the end is going to be.
