Faith – A Poem From My Book, “GOD Is Not A Stuffed Shirt”

Dear PaPa,

Father, I know that there is so much more to faith than simply believing in You. Faith, that we are loved. Faith, that we are provided for.

Faith, that health is possibly maintained by attitude and prayer. Faith, that You want us financially secure and so much more. Faith, that we can grace the world with Your love and make it a better place.

Faith, that Jesus’ life was an orchestrated dance between Him and Father God in heaven. That He is our Lord of Lords and King of Kings.

Faith, that Jesus died on the cross after living a sinless life, despite all temptations. Faith, that the Father raised His Son from the dead after three days.

Faith, that Jesus continued His ministry on earth for a while after He was resurrected, until finally He rose into heaven to sit at His Father’s right hand.

Faith, that Jesus forgave our sinful lives, and Faith, that when He died on the cross He bequeathed to us His unconditional love, His mercy, forgiveness, grace, and redemption.

Faith, that He left to us His power to heal and cast out demons. Faith, that even now He provides for us with prayer and our daily bread.

Faith, that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and that it’s through Him only that we are united with our Father in Heaven – eternally.

He used all of that beauty to make a point that, no matter how painful or annoying our problems are, they are tiny in the grand scheme of things. Continue reading “Insignificant – Never!!”

Salvation, or, being “saved” does not happen simply because you go to church, or read the Bible, or even pray. Believing in God does not mean that your salvation is a done deal either.

In John 14:6 Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” A loving, personal and intimate relationship with Jesus is essential in order to ensure your place in heaven, with God, for eternity.
