  • Love Sacrifice
    Thorns on My head,
    Blood that was shed,
    It paid for your life,
    A love sacrifice.

    It bore all your sins,
    With new days to win,
    By calling My name,
    Forgiving all shame.

    Saving your soul,
    The promise of hope,
    It covers with grace,
    Redemption embraced.

    Eternal it gives,
    Forever to live,
    To never then die,
    A gift for all time.
  • Be A Friend
    Can you think back when you felt down and had no motivation? Think of whom and other than your family was there for you. Which one of those friends stuck by you no matter what? I bet you would consider that person as a bother or even a sister.  You might be asking "Damien, where are you going with this?" Well if you think of King David from the Bible, he too had a best friend called Johnathan who was Saul's son. When David was anointed as King of Israel, Johnathan did not get jealous nor did he fly into a blind rage, but he instead allowed David to fulfil his purpose. 

    I am sure there are many things you would do for a friend you consider family. In the same way, Johnathan did the same thing for David. David and Johnathan became really good friends and spent a lot of time together. I would like to think that many people have at least one friend that would do that.

    However, life can be cruel and puts someone that needs that one friend in a situation or even just daily circumstances where it is difficult to make a friend. We often read people wrong when we meet them. I met an old buddy of mine from school and we instantly connected and caught up on old times. But one thing that bothers myself and him is that people that were friendly and easy to get along with having changed in such a way that we don’t want to be friends with them and those that we would never thought that we would actually think that are good people, are now good people and easy to get along with. I want to encourage the reading this to help make a difference.

    Be a friend to someone that wants to have a friend. Be the brother that someone that really needs one. Don’t be the bad guy, if you look it from a spiritual sense, Christ was liked by those that weren’t like him and was hated by those that were. Christ never came down to be the big dog of the world but to be one of those that serve the world to make it a better place. Be blessed! 
  • Pick up the sword
      Stand and pick up your weapon
     Time for the ultimate decision
     Why am I back at the moment again
     Trying to figure things out again  
     
    My heart is racing
    As if it is Goliath I'm facing
    Oh why must it strange
     It is so easy to be filled with rage
       
     It's too easy to turn cold
     It's time to pick up the holy sword
     I am scared to fight
    Christ shows me the light  

    The fearful shall become fearless
    The weak will become strong
    This is the road to righteousness
    No time to be careless  

    YOLO is dead
    Christ washed the world with blood of red
    That we might choose life instead
    Christ is not dead!  

    Pick up the sword of truth
    Christ has risen
    Time to let go of your anguish
    Your freedom has already been released
  • The Image of God
    In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. He spoke life as we know it into existence. He is our creator.

    Now, when he made man, he'd said "let's create man in our own image." In the likeness of God, the spirit of man was created and placed into the body formed from dust.

    God blessed man and told them to reproduce. Whilst this might mean to bring forth children, it also means to create.

    Each and every soul on earth has been blessed with at least a natural gift. If you haven't realised it yet, doesn't mean you don't have it.

    God has blessed us with a creative mind to reproduce and replenish. Therefore as Christians we shouldn't be fighting for the chance to stand on the pulpit to preach or become church leaders. 

    If you haven't been called, doesn't mean God will look down on your Worship. 

    He has planted a gift in you to use for his glory. Now, if you don't use this gift wisely to the glorify of God and to love your neighbour, then your worship will not be acceptable onto thy sight.

    Your gift could be used in a number of careers singing, playing sports, making people laugh, acting, apptitude for science, medicine, accountacy and finance etc.

    As long as you do your daily little tasks to glorify our creator, he will bless you abundantly and increase your level of productive. 

    Luke 16:10 says: “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.”

    Only in Christ, can you reach your full potential as the image of God, the creator.
  • Only You
    I want you most of all, Lord,
    You and you alone,
    For if I don't I'm so lost,
    My flesh to want control.

    All my fears returning,
    When I put you aside,
    Not reading words of wisdom,
    No truth to guide my life.

    I've walked away before, God,
    Then realized mistake,
    And found your grace then for me,
    That moment you forgave.

    I love you, Jesus, thank you,
    For never did you leave,
    And even though deserving,
    Your love would still redeem.
  • The Morning Hours
    Your goodness came to visit with me today,
    Bringing tears to my eyes and joy to my heart,
    Thankful you had heard my desire to be with you.

    It was in the early morning hour, The time we would meet,
    Discussing your word and questions I would ask you to teach me.

    You amaze me with how you can touch my heart,
    Just one word from you and I leap inside,
    Excited you honored me this day,
    And grateful how this intensifies our love.

    Jesus, lover of my soul,
    I praise you this day for all you are doing in me,
    Changing me daily, minute by minute,
    Molding me to be like you,
    Growing in truth and wisdom with understanding.

    I love you, Lord!
  • Pride Before the Fall (getting ready for church with children)
    This morning I was pretty proud of myself. I had stayed up all night with a congested baby, and still got up around 7ish (been awake since 6). I did not look forward to the morning, because this morning I would be going to Sunday School solo with Mike meeting us at church later, and I was solely responsible for everyone looking presentable today. But  I made time and baked sweet and yellow potatoes in the oven and made fresh coleslaw to go with the roast I made last night. I cleared off the cluttered counter. My baby was in a good mood.  Charley was not defiant when he got up. Things were going so smoothly, I even decided I would paint my toenails after I had dressed. 
    And that's when things went downhill. 
    For whatever reason, as I was sipping my coffee and feeling quite proud that we would have lunch waiting on us when I got home, the baby giggled up to me and bit me in the inner thigh through my skirt. My suede skirt...now has snot and coffee on it. And in my attempt to get away from his little jaws, I spilled coffee all over the bathroom and he stomped on my still wet painted toes.  
    This is why I try to keep a humble. Those little rascals can and smell the scent of pride and will hunt it down, bite it, stomp it, pour hot coffee, and snot all over it. 
    But the lunch was good. And my babies are cute. 
    Happy Sunday :)
  • Rising To the Top
    Fame and fortune,
    Name in lights,
    Won't fulfill you,
    So think twice.

    All day working,
    Hours on end,
    Is it worth it
    Just to win?

    Life is precious,
    Look around,
    It's My people
    Who need found.

    Spend time wisely,
    Seek Me first,
    Finding treasure,
    Love on Earth.
  • Love Conquers Fear
    As humans we are bound to face moments of difficulties in our lives, which tends to instil fear in us.

    It could be the fear of losing a loved one, the fear of failing an exam, being fired at work or not meeting expections. Even a range of phobias. 

    God acknowledges and often promises us in his word not to be afraid. In fact, it's mentioned several times in the bible when he approaches anointed men of God.

    The key to conquering fear is to have a profound love for God. Once your foundation is rooted with the love of God, you will be able to trust him to fulfill his promises in your life.

    Take for instance, an engaged couple looking to get married. If the woman doesn't love the man, she will be frightened to enter into a life long commitment. 

    Remember, Courage is not the absence of fear, it is the presence of love inspite of fear. 

    Look up to Jesus and he'll send Holy Spirit to be your encourage and strengthen you during hard times.

    “Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’”‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭41:10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

  • First Fruits of Praise
    I'm bringing you my first fruits,
    Praises I will sing,
    Declaring you're my Father,
    My Savior, Lord and King.

    It's in this time I find you,
    The early morning hours,
    Where you show up and greet me,
    My best friend that I've found.

    Excitement for your presence,
    This always gives me glee,
    To seek you first in all things,
    My hope of you to see.

    Minutes turn to hours,
    Our time we get to share,
    Which these are what I cherish,
    Just knowing that you're there.
  • When I Met You
    You captured my heart,
    When I read your Word,
    A message of hope,
    With Jesus to turn.

    I learned of your ways,
    Just how to live right,
    And soon would proclaim,
    My Savior is Christ.

    Your scriptures I read,
    To be more like you,
    Refining my mind,
    You taught how to do.

    I'm thankful to say,
    My God you are now,
    And telling my story,
    I pray the lost found.

    Is God’s Word stored ?
    Is it completely secured
    Are you wearing The Sword

    What is on your billboard ?

    And what is showing on your dashboard

    Be not unprepared! Keep a scoreboard
    Be not impaired for your springboard

    Matthew 5:14-16
    “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
  • Wounded Soul
    Soul wounds long ago,
    Those tender to the touch,
    Are guarded by another,
    The God who loves so much.

    Protecting inner wounds,
    He covers with His blood,
    And healing those within,
    A blessing from His Son.

    Addressing pain inside,
    He gently soothes with love,
    With arms to hold you close,
    A fortress from above.

    The end result proclaims,
    No longer feeling down,
    And in the dreams at night,
    The memories now not found.

    Following…

    Follow me, as I follow JESUS
    But, if I fall down
    Don't stick around
    Unless, you helping out
    So I continue to follow Jesus

    Follow me, as I learn from JESUS
    But, if I fail to follow JESUS
    Don't follow me! Follow JESUS

    Follow me to The Fellow JESUS
    The One, who rose on third day
    He can save your soul this very day

    Following…
    He is, was and is The Only JESUS
    Resurrected from the dead
    For all my sinful sins
    For me to hell, He went

    Fishers of men, you’d become

  • In the dark
    In the dark

    As we look at the word: suborder
    You might think, it's a sub, to order
    Actually, it's a family suborder in science
    I say , a species, more than defiant
    Of The God Almighty, divine order

    Of interest, a snake ranks below the order
    But, it once stood, was quite a tall order
    It’s the classification of animals related
    Not this way, when he was first created
    But now, he brings nothing, but disorder

    The snake, or Lucifer, as he once was
    Remember, at the beginning of evil
    In the garden with Adam and Eve
    Once was, the anointed cherub
    To worship The Lord God, and to cherish

    … his name: ‘light bearer', lost his light
    And at the end, he would lose the fight
    You would ask, why he thought it right
    To give up all he had, because of pride
    … he chose darkness instead of light

    Today, are you filled with violence within?
    You sinned, turned your back on God!?
    Turn around now, let it be a new start!
    Today, is the best day for Salvation
    Today, harden no longer your heart
    Ask Jesus, to come in your heart!!

    “You were in Eden, the garden of God;
    Every precious stone was your covering….

    Ezekiel 28:14-17
    “You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; You were on the holy mountain of God; You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones. You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, Till iniquity was found in you.
    “By the abundance of your trading
    You became filled with violence within,
    And you sinned; Therefore I cast you as a profane thing out of the mountain of God;
    And I destroyed you, O covering cherub,
    From the midst of the fiery stones.
    “Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor; I cast you to the ground….

    But you said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God….
