What others are saying...

I found myself waiting to receive each new poem; and on many occasions that spark that I began to feel long ago was rekindled. IN THE NIGHT SEASONS shares these excellent inspirational, devotional pieces with a much wider audience. I am sure that reading them and reflecting on them will bring to many a sense of comfort, spiritual edification, and perhaps even a spark or two. We may even find ourselves reciting them.

ABOUT THIS BOOK

    The title was chosen because most writings were given to me during the night. Also, as the stages of life transpire from day to night, I am In The Night Seasons.

     The poetic writings were inspired by the Holy Spirit and will help the reader by offering consolation, inspiration, motivation, enlightenment, and coping skills to live a more empowered, victorious, effective life for Jesus Christ. It includes many of life's experiences with it's growing pains, failures, and triumphs.

Signature in lower case letters to place emphasis on the message rather than the messenger.

THE DESIRE OF THE AUTHOR...PRAYER REGARDING PRIDE

FATHER, PROTECT ME FROM FALSE PRIDE

WITH A "PUFFED UP" ATTITUDE...

REGARDING THE THOUGHTS YOUR SPIRIT DIRECTS

AND THE TALENT GIVEN TO ME...BY YOU.

I AM BOTH HUMBLED AND AMAZED

THAT YOU'VE CHOSEN ME AS ONE

TO ENCOURAGE WITH COMPASSION

TO DIRECT OTHERS TO "THE SON".

FATHER...I ACCEPT THIS CHALLENGE

THIS LEGACY TO "GRANDS", "DAUGHTERS" AND SONS.

FOR VERBAL EXCHANGE...IN TIME MUST CEASE

BUT YOUR MESSAGES WILL LIVE ON...AND ON.

AMEN...AMEN

.

MY TESTIMONY

I  WILL HUMBLY SAY AS THE PSALMIST DAVID SAID:"WITH MY WHOLE HEART I HAVE SOUGHT YOU: OH, LET ME NOT WANDER FROM YOUR COMMANDMENTS! YOUR WORD I HAVE HIDDEN IN MY HEART THAT I MIGHT NOT SIN AGAINST YOU. BLESSED ARE YOU, O LORD! TEACH ME YOUR STATUTES. I HAVE REJOICED IN THE WAY OF YOUR TESTIMONIES, AS MUCH AS IN ALL RICHES. I WILL MEDITATE ON YOUR PRECEPTS, AND CONTEMPLATE YOUR WAYS. I WILL DELIGHT MYSELF IN YOUR STATUES. I WILL NOT FORGET YOUR WORD. AMEN

PSALM 119:9-16 NKJV


Psalms Of The Soul

Eyes...Window To The Soul...Can you identify?

MUSINGS RE THE EYE   PARAPHRASED...SCRIPTURE TELLS US...

THE EYE IS A LAMP OF THE BODY

RADIATING LIGHT TO THE SOUL.

OR  IT CAN EMIT A DARKNESS WITHIN THAT IS

DIFFICULT TO KEEP UNDER OUR CONTROL. 

THE EYE REVEALS OUR REAL SELF WHETHER OUR HEART HAS WARMTH OR IS COLD.

WHAT OUR EYE SEES  MAKES AN INSTANT IMPRINT ON OUR BRAIN.

WHICH WHEN RECALLED... ENHANCES POSITIVITY OR REVEALS WHAT WE DISDAIN. 

THEREFORE WE SHOULD SERIOUSLY REGULATE

 WHAT WE ALLOW OUR EYES TO VIEW.

 FOR THERE WILL BE A NEGATIVE OR POSITIVE EFFECT ON US OR OTHERS 

 AS WE ARE STRIVING TO GO THROUGH.

 IF A MAN CANNOT LOOK AT YOU EYE TO EYE AS HE SPEAKS

 HE SHOULD HAVE LITTLE OR NO IMPACT ON YOUR PSYCHE, 

 NO MATTER WHAT HE MIGHT SEEK.

 THE EYE IS A UNIQUE IDENTIFYING FACTOR.

 FOR WHICH DUPLICATION

 CANNOT BE ACHIEVED.

 IT CAN ABSORB LIGHT,

 REFLECT LIGHT

 OR DISPERSE LIGHT TO OTHERS 

 AS WE SPEAK TO THEM. 

 AT  TIMES REVEALING 

 IF WE ARE INDEED A FRIEND.  

 THE SONG SAYS, 

 TURN YOUR EYES UPON JESUS 

 LOOK FULL IN HIS WONDERFUL FACE..

 AND THE THINGS OF THIS EARTH WILL GROW SLIGHTLY DIM 

 IN  THE LIGHT OF HIS GLORY AND GRACE.          

ATTENTION...BE "THE MAN"

ATTENTION...BE THE MAN.  OBSERVE WHAT IS  HAPPENING ALL AROUND US.

SOME FATHERS, GRANDPAS, SONS,  BROTHERS, UNCLES, COUSINS

ARE NOT BEING EXAMPLES  TO SHOW IN WHOM WE SHOULD TRUST.

LOOK, LOOK AROUND YOU, THERE'S A WAR GOING ON  TO CLAIM MAN'S SONS.

SATAN IS BATTLING WITH THEIR MINDS TO TRY TO WIN THEM ONE BY ONE. 

SATAN TELLS THEM YOU'RE O.K.! BECAUSE YOU ARE  A GOOD PERSON FOR SURE. 

IN FACT BETTER THAN A LOT OF FOLK WHO FAITHFULLY ENTER  INTO THE CHURCH DOOR.

JUST WAIT A LITTLE LONGER YOU NEED TO SOW YOUR OWN WILD OATS.

OH YES, THE OLD SHIP OF ZION IS SAILING BUT WAIT A WHILE.. 

YOU WON'T MISS THAT OLD GLORY  BOAT;

JUST STAY OUT HERE IN THE WORLD WITH ME UNTIL YOU'VE   COMPLETELY QUIT DOING WRONG. DON'T GIVE YOUR LIFE TO JESUS UNTIL YOU FEEL  YOU CAN BE SPIRITUALLY STRONG.

HE'LL NEVER TELL THEM THE LORD WILL HELP THEM TO GET CLEAN. 

BECAUSE HE WANTS THEM TO FAIL WHILE TRYING TO DO THEIR OWN CLEAN UP THING!

HE TELLS THEM GOING TO CHURCH AND BIBLE STUDY IS JUST A GIRL, WOMAN  AND SISSY THING. THAT IT IS NOT FOR A REAL MAN

TO BELIEVE, SUBMIT,  BE BAPTIZED AND CLING

TO A SAVIOR WHO WILLINGLY DIED ON CALVARY'S CROSS FOR OUR SIN

OR TO OBEDIENCE OF HIS INSTRUCTIONS THAT BROUGHT US FROM WHERE WE HAD ONCE BEEN.

TIME AND TIME AGAIN CHRISTIANS HAVE STATED GOOD IS NOT ENOUGH, MY FRIEND. 

ACCEPTING JESUS AS PERSONAL SAVIOR IS THE DECISION  ON WHICH YOUR LIFE DEPENDS. GOD'S WORD SAYS, CONFESS YOUR SINS TO GOD AND HE WILL CLEANSE YOU.

GOD DOES NOT EXPECT YOUR CLEANSING TO COME ONLY FROM EFFORTS BY YOU.

SATAN IS A THIEF AND A LIAR. DOING HIS JOB TO STEAL  THE MINDS OF OUR MEN. 

BUT GOD IS JUSTIFIER, REDEEMER, FORGIVER, PROTECTOR AND RESTORER.

FOR WHEN WE FALL  IF WE REPENT AND ASK HIM HE WILL DEFINITELY...PICK US UP AGAIN. 

SO TODAY, IF YOU WANT TO BE THE MAN WHO DESERVES TRUE KUDOS FOR HIS LIFE.

HEAD YOUR HOME, YOUR CHURCH, YOUR SCHOOL, YOUR JOB 

AS A GODLY EXAMPLE  OF A WILL TO AVOID STRIFE.

SO WE'RE CALLING ALL MEN  TO TRULY BE THE MAN !

LIVING A LIFE ACCORDING TO GOD'S WORD.

STANDING ON HIS PROMISES  GLEANS BENEFITS HERE ON EARTH 

PLUS EVERLASTING LIFE... OUR ETERNAL REWARD.          

HIDDEN AGENDAS

HEAVENLY FATHER,  OFTEN YOU HAVE SHOWN THE UNDERLYING MOTIVES OF YOUR PEOPLE.

NOT FOR GOSSIP  BUT TO MAKE US AWARE SOME  ARE UNKNOWINGLY  BEING FUELED BY EVIL. PERHAPS AT TIMES THEY DO NOT REALIZE 

THE WORK OF THE LORD  REQUIRES INTEGRITY NO HIDDEN AGENDAS, 

FULL DISCLOSURE  TO BE BLESSED

WITH  A VICTORIOUS RELATIONSHIP WITH THEE.

RESTORE  WITH YOUR BRIGHT LIGHT OF HONESTY, STRAIGHT FORWARDNESS

AND GENUINE INTENT THOSE WHO MANIPULATE WHILE PROCLAIMING  TO BE HEAVEN SENT. CONTINUE  TO SHOW THE REAL AND THE TRUE 

THAT THEY WILL INDEED  ALWAYS  FIND FAVOR FROM YOU.   AMEN...AMEN...AMEN 



I JOHN 4:24 TLB  

THOSE WHO DO WHAT GOD SAYS... THEY ARE LIVING WITH GOD  

AND HE WITH THEM.  WE KNOW THIS IS TRUE 

BECAUSE THE HOLY SPIRIT HE HAS GIVEN US TELLS US SO.      

Trust

Look to the "Son"

GOD SAYS...TRUST IN ME   TRUST IN ME. 

I AM YOUR PEACE. 

ONLY I, NEVER SLUMBER.   

ONLY I, NEVER SLEEP.

TRUST IN ME I DON'T NEED CALL WAITING OR CALLER ID 

TO KNOW WHAT YOU'RE ANTICIPATING. TRUST IN ME.  

I ALREADY KNEW YOUR NAME.

EVEN BEFORE YOU WERE BORN. 

YOU ARE  PREDESTINED TO BE THE SAME. 

TRUST IN ME. I WILL ANSWER YOUR CALL.

NO REQUEST IS TOO BIG.  NO CONCERN IS TOO SMALL. TALK TO ME. WHEN YOU NEED INNER PEACE.

I AM ALL SUFFICIENT MY JOY WILL NEVER CEASE. 

TRUST IN ME. DO NOT BECOME UNRAVELED.

I HAVE GUIDED YOU BEFORE 

DOWN EVERY ROAD YOU HAVE TRAVELED.

I HAVE  COMFORTED YOU, LOVED YOU..

AND HELD YOU TO MY BREAST.

MY WORD REASSURES YOU 

THAT I WILL GIVE STRENGTH FOR THE TEST.

I HAVE SHOWN YOU EVENTS 

BEFORE THEY HAVE  EVEN TAKEN PLACE.

I HAVE GIRDED YOU FOR THE BATTLE.

I HAVE EMPOWERED YOU FOR LIFE'S RACE. 

IF YOU LACK WISDOM MY WORD SAYS JUST ASK.

IN YOUR SPIRIT I WILL GIVE

INSTANT RESPONSE FOR THIS PRESENT TASK.

SO TRUST IN ME, MY CHILD I HAVE GOT YOUR BACK, 

YOUR FRONT, YOUR SIDES, 

YOUR UPS AND YOUR DOWNS. 

YOU WILL NEVER...SUFFER LACK.      

Hope From The Word Of God

Blessed is the man that Trusteth In the Lord, And whose HOPE The Lord is. For he shall be  as a tree planted by the waters, And that spreadeth out her roots By the river, and shall not see  when heat cometh, But her leaf shall be green; And shall not be careful  the year of drought, Neither shall cease from yielding fruit. And not only so, but we  glory in tribulations also; Knowing that  tribulation worketh patience: And patience, experience; And experience HOPE.

JEREMIAH 17:7-8    

The Sun burns off the fog

AS THE SUN BURNS OFF FOG

SO DOES "THE SON" BURN OFF THE FOG OF LIFE WITH SALVATION, LOVE, MERCY AND GRACE!
