Tag Archive for: inspiration

A friend shared a devotion with me and as I was reading it, the words, “If the mountain were smooth, we wouldn’t climb it.” pierced my heart into inspiration! Truly a God moment. I love these moments because I know with certainty, the Holy Spirit has a message for me to communicate with my fellow earthlings. So be inspired with this poetic mustard seed… and keep climbing!

When I gaze upon the majestic moon and the stars that surround its glow

there is nothing I or man can add to its beauty

When I look up at the white puffy clouds

and the rainbow that always takes us by surprise

there is nothing we can add to it

When I sit on a beach and marvel the sand for which God says 

He knows the number of every grain

and the ocean that spreads 

so much wider than my limited view

I can’t help but

bow my head in adoration 

because there is nothing I can add to it

When rain drops sprinkle the earth

because I Am speaks it forth in His perfect timing

I am truly amazed at the water and how it is always on time

and there is simply nothing I or man can add to its beauty

When I think of the early morning dew that awaits our senses

in all of its glimmer and nourishment to the earth

there is nothing we can add to it

When I think of each budding tree

every flower petal 

each grain of soil

all the creations that walk, crawl, leap, and fly upon the earth

including me

and including you

there is nothing we can add to its beauty

except, Love

Inspired 3:33 am 12/11/18 by Psalm 23 NKJV. Poetic Mustard Seeds. All work posted is protected by copyright.

The Lord is my shepherd, because You said You would never leave me nor forsake me

I shall not want, because You said if I would just trust You, You would take care of every detail in my life

He makes me to lie down in green pastures, because there is no sun-burn grass in Your valley

He leads me beside the still waters, because only You know when I need total refreshing

He restores my soul, because You know how hard this life can be at times

He leads me in the paths of righteousness, because You know that righteousness is the only path that will lead me to a full life

For His name’s sake, because it was never about me and always about You

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, because these are perilous times we live in

I will fear no evil, because again, You said you would never leave me nor forsake me

For You are with me, ALL OF THE TIME

Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me, because, You know what is best for me and You alone are my biggest cheerleader 

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies, because my character means more to You than any of the conditions You allow me to go through

You anoint my head with oil, because You know what lies ahead in my valleys

My cup runs over, because You have every solid thing I need

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me because again I say, You said wherever i am, there You are

All the days of my life, because You know the number of each one

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord because there IS NO other place for me or that I would rather be

Forever. Yes, forever because You are the ultimate ride or die.

I wasn’t always saved

but some one was watching and Some One was keeping me

I’ve always had a big heart, yet I was selfish too

Even though I had a varied vocabulary, I cursed like Peter

My focus was on creating my kingdom and not living for God’s Kingdom

I was short tempered and got angry easily

because I wasn’t always saved

but some one was watching and Some One was keeping me

I was nice yet I could be cruel at the snap of a finger too because I had that gear

When I could not have my way, I metaphorically and literally at times

stumped my feet and made my own way

not even the least bit concerned about God’s way

I wasn’t always saved

but some one was watching and Some One was keeping me

I always loved helping people, but I never saw it as ministry and God’s practicum for purpose

Sadie said “don’t’ live a life of regrets”

so now I am grateful for the life I lived before God saved me

because He was keeping me all along the way

He knew those watching me would see my transformation and His Glory simultaneously

He knew my heart would expand, growing big enough for His Kingdom assignments

because some one is always watching

Like Paul, He knew He would give me some blinding time so my selfishness would turn into self-less-ness and

He knew Pastor James Marshall would be along my journey to teach me about managing my emotions so I and my tongue would leave less and less dead bodies along my way

He knew that one day my way would be less of a concern and His way would be more of my deepest desire

He knew that to be in authentic relationship with Him, for me to know Him from the mountaintop

I had to grow in the valley of life

so that I could live a life worth honoring

I am still in the valley growing

with honor and sold out, Jesus freak, not turning back

service to and reverence for God, the One Who keeps me

Psalm 23:3 states “He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name.”

some one is always watching

Is your life a life worth honoring

but more importantly

do you bring honor to His name?

This afternoon, I have the pleasure of facilitating a poetry workshop at the Lake Elkhorn Middle School to 22 young ladies who have the potential to change the world in a positive manner.
