STOP THE VIOLENCE

WHEN WILL WE LEARN TO LOVE

SO WE CAN STOP KILLING THE DOVE

CRAZY AS THIS MAY SEEM

THIS IS NOT A DREAM

EVERYDAY OF OUR LIFE

WE'RE ENSLAVED TO STRIFE

BRINGING IT ON OURSELF

INSTEAD OF PUTTING IT ON A SHELF

LET'S ALL GET IT TOGETHER

HELPING EACH OTHER FOREVER

PUTTING GOD FIRST IN OUR LIVES

THEN WE CAN FINALLY ARRIVE

TO THE TRUE MEANING OF LOVE

GETTING OUR HELP FROM ABOVE

PEACE TO ALL MANKIND

LETTING OUR LITTLE LIGHTS SHINE

 

SCARED AND SHY

BUT IT MUST BE DONE

HOLD YOUR HEAD HIGH

SPEAK FOR THE LORD

LOUD AND CLEAR

FOR ALL TO HEAR

PROCLAIM HIS GREATNESS

HIS LOVE, HIS MERCY

LISTEN AND LEARN

WITH WISDOM YOU EARN

A TIME TO CARE

SO RIGHT TO SHARE

THE PRICE, THE TREASURE

IN THE END

IS WHAT COUNTS

YOUR DESTINY'S MEASURE

 

One thing about the little g(god) that I have once worshipped, who I was enslaved to, that little g did nothing for me and I gave up just about everything for it.  The little g brought heartache and pain, depression and despair, the list goes on.  It did nothing for my children.  They saw their mother disintegrating before their very eyes.  My soul was slowly and slickly being stole by the little g.  In contrast, with God, He offered me so much more.  I have my life back, the one that God gave me to live.  I have my children back to hopefully make them proud of me.  I am no longer frustrated or depressed.  I have turned that in for happiness and peace.  I will forever thank God for His grace and mercy towards me, in Jesus name I do.

 

I need you God

To keep me strong

A smile on my face

As I finish this race

I need you God

Uplifting your name

Blessing you with thanksgiving

For this life that I'm living

I need you God

Praying always to you

Helping me to get through

Keeping us safe and healthy too

I need you God

Thanking Jesus everyday

He paid the price

So we can enjoy this life

 

HAPPY NEW YEARS TO ALL OF YOU.  I AM PRAYING FOR US ALL TO HAVE A BEAUTIFUL, PEACEFUL, PRODUCTIVE YEAR AHEAD.  LET'S BE ABOUT SOMETHING POSITIVE AND UPLIFTING.  LET US KEEP OUR PRAYERS UP, LET US KEEP THANKING GOD FOR ALL THAT HE HAS DONE FOR US.  WE ARE ALL BLESSED, JUST TO BE HERE IS A BLESSING.  I THANK GOD FOR THE MOST AWESOME YEAR LAST YEAR.  I GOT A CHANCE TO HAVE A BOOK PUBLISHED, WITH MY FATHER'S HELP.  I AM ON THE RIGHT TRACK.  BUILDING MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD IS MY TOP PRIORITY FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.  GOD HAS BEEN GOOD TO US ALL, I WILL FOREVER THANK HIM.  ALL PRAISE TO GOD, ALL GLORY TO GOD, IN JESUS NAME.  LOVE AND HAPPINESS TO YOU ALL.

 

I HAVE TO STAY CLOSE TO

YOU

AND DO ALL THAT YOU TELL ME TO

DO

BECAUSE YOU ARE #1 IN MY

LIFE

BLESSED, A LIFE WITH NO

STRIFE

I LOVE YOU ALWAYS AND

FOREVER

I WILL LEAVE YOU, NO GOD

NEVER

IN JESUS NAME I

PRAY

YESTERDAY, TOMORROW AND

TODAY

 

KEEP ME LIVING FOR YOU

KEEP ME COMMITTED TO YOU

I'M TRYING MY BEST TO LIVE IN YOUR NAME

AND LET MY PAST BE PUT TO SHAME

LOVE IS EVERYTHING

SOON AS WE REALIZE IT

EVERYTHING WILL BE OKAY

YOU DON'T HURT EACH OTHER

WHEN YOU LOVE

YOU DON'T KILL AND MAIM

THEN DON'T WANT TO TAKE THE BLAME

WE MUST COME TOGETHER ON ONE ACCORD

SO WE CAN BE HAPPY AND PRAISE THE LORD

LOVE IS THE KEY

I HOPE ONE DAY WE WILL BEGIN TO SEE

 

SEEMS LIKE EVERYTIME YOU LOOK AROUND THERE IS AN INCONVENIENCE, ANOTHER PROBLEM TO SOLVE.  LET US CONTINUE TO PRAY WHEN TIMES OR GOOD AS WELL AS THE BAD TIMES.  WE ARE GOING TO STAY IN TOUCH WITH GOD REGARDLESS.  I LOVE THE LORD SO I WILL ALWAYS TRY MY BEST, GOD WILLING, TO WORK ON MY RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.  LET US BUILD ON THIS RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD TO HELP US DEAL WITH THE DAILY STRUGGLES IN EVERYDAY LIFE.

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS 2010 TO EVERYBODY, MUCH LOVE TO ALL OF YOU AND MAY GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERYONE THE MOST WONDERFUL NEW YEAR EVER.  I PRAY TO CONTINUE TO BUILD MY RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU FATHER AND I PRAY FOR PEACE, HAPPINESS AND LOVE TO ALL.

 

DONT BURST THE BUBBLE

OR RAIN ON THE PARADE

LET THE GOOD MOOD SHOW

SO THE HAPPINESS CAN FLOW

LIKE A RUNNING RIVER

CONNECTING AS IT GO

BY SPLASHING AND SPILLING OVER

ALL PEOPLE IT WILL COVER

BRINGING A CALMING PEACE

THAT LASTS ETERNALLY

LAUGHTER AND SMILES ALL AROUND

MAKING THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SOUND

 

TO MY CHILDREN

ALWAYS TRYING TO GET YOU TO LISTEN

HUMBLY TALKING, LOUDLY YELLING

TELLING YOU OF THE MISTAKES I MADE

TRYING TO PROTECT YOU FROM ALL THE TROUBLES AHEAD

ALL I WANT IS FOR YOU TO GROW UP

TO BE A RESPONSIBLE, LOVING ADULT

TAKING GOD EVERY WHERE YOU GO

HE'S THE ONLY ONE YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO SHOW

DOING FOR THOSE, WHENEVER YOU CAN

NOT BEING AFRAID TO GIVE A HELPING HAND

BEING A SERVANT TO GOD IS AN HONOR INDEED

SO STAND UP TALL, YOU MUST TAKE THE LEAD

I'LL NEVER STOP PRAYING FOR YOU

MY LOVE IS EVERLASTING TOO

I'M HERE ALONG FOR THE RIDE

ALWAYS STANDING BY YOUR SIDE

 

ANGER PRAYER

RID ME OF THE ANGER ISSUES

ALL THE DRAMA AND THE PRESSURES

REEL ME IN FROM THE EDGE

CALM MY MIND, THIS I PLEDGE

HOW DOES ONE HAVE MORE PATIENCE

UNDERSTANDING AND COMMUNICATION

TRIED THAT, STILL DON'T WORK

ALL IT DOES IS MAKE MY HEAD HURT

YOU KNOW WHAT, I'LL GIVE IT TO GOD

THE BURDEN IS HEAVY, THIS IS HARD

NEXT TIME I WON'T THINK TWICE

I'LL PRAY TO MY LORD, JESUS CHRIST

 

 

 GIVING  IT  ALL  TO  MY  FATHER

 Giving it All to My Father is my first book, published by PublishAmerica.  This book is a true story, everyone has a story to tell and this is mine.  This book is about me struggling with a drug addiction and my battles being involved in a physical abusive relationship.  At one time in my life I thought I would never be free of drugs or that I could never get out of the relationship where I was physically abused.  By God's grace, He pulled me through both and I am forever grateful to Him.

Giving it All to My Father is encouraging, interesting, uplifting and inspirational.  I am very grateful to God for blessing me to make it back on the right path and to get out of the mess that I had gotten myself in.  I could have died out there and I do know some people that have.  For whatever reason I was spared, so at this point in my life I want to make a difference, to be of a help in whatever capacity that I can be.

 These are some of my poems that I write as I go along each day.  Whatever my Father brings to me, I shall write, for all comes from Him.  I know and I pray that all come from my Father and God willing I will be of a help and inspiration to people.

Who so ever comes to visit me on this site, I surely appreciate your time and also I encourage conversation or what ever we can do to be of a help to inspire and encourage each other.  Leave a comment or you can contact me through email jlmcmt@yahoo.com, thank you all so much.

 

The Walk of Life

From the depths of my soul I cry,

while trying to keep my head to the sky

Don't believe none of the devil lies,

Just keep your eyes on the ultimate prize

This walk get weary and troubled sometimes,

Longing to hear the bells of the heavenly chimes

Abound  or abaste, I am content,

because in Jesus name I repent.

 

My Sheperd

I will follow God, I will let Him be my guide,

Give me wisdom, take away my pride,

All the days of my life, I will be on God's side.

 

 

ENDURANCE

I'm going to be patient, and keep trying.

Holding my head toward the sky, there's no denying.

Doing everything I can do to sharpen my skill,

Whatever happen, trust me it's God's will.

No doubt He's first in my life,

With Him on my side, there's no strife.

So I go forward, Him I follow,

Yesterday, today and tomorrow.

 

 

I'm going to keep this site updated.  These poems are my own and I truly love writing poems.  I know if I really put time into these poems something truly amazing will come of them.  That's why putting time into these poems is a part of my plan.  Right now in my life I'm just trying to be patient with my book Giving it All to My Father.  I truly hope the book and the things that I have gone through can help someone.  I know I have to be patient and dedicated to the task.  So I will keep praying and keep seeking a closer relaitonship with God.  That is what's important to us all, building a relationship with God is so essential, I can't say it enough.

 

I PRAY

I pray my Father for success,

In every way, to please You, yes.

Every day as I get closer to You,

Dealing with this life that I'm trying to get through.

Hopes and dreams are being realized,

You're answering my prayers and hearing my cries.

On that pedestal You will always be,

Our Father which art in heaven, yes that's He.

Loving You forever and always,

Giving You what You deserve, all the praise.

In Jesus name, whom I love,

Who is in heaven up above.

 

THIS WORLD OF OURS

This world is really beautiful,

All for us to see.

Given life for us to live,

in something such as this.

There's also a darkness about this world,

The only way you can beat it.

Believe that Jesus is the Son of God,

and He will help you get through it.

With that being said,

let's live life to the fullest.

helping and loving each other along the way,

being kind and thoughtful in everything we say.

 

WORDS HURT

WORDS CAN SOMETIMES HURT AND BERATE,

LOSING YOUR COOL TRYING TO MAKE THEM COOPERATE.

SLOW DOWN, THINK BEFORE YOU OPEN YOUR MOUTH,

BECAUSE YOU CAN'T TAKE BACK THE VENOM YOU SPROUT.

 

FEELINGS

FEELINGS OF HELPLESSNESS

GET OUT MY MIND

FILL WITH A CONFIDENCE

THAT I NEED ALL THE TIME

SAME THING, OVER AND OVER

JUST WHEN YOU THINK ITS THROUGH

 A COUPLE MORE THINGS YOU GOT TO DO

DEAL WITH IT, THAT'S LIFE

HARSH WORDS, BUT ITS RIGHT

I WISH I WILL, I WISH I MIGHT

BE GIVEN THE STRENGTH TO DEAL WITH THIS LIFE

 

I am inspired and pray for inspiration to write these poems, from my heart to yours, hoping that you feel them and be encouraged in some way to keep pushing forward in this life.  Life is what you make it, and I am going to try my best to make it good.  Believing in God to give me strength like no other can do.   

 

THIS BEAUTIFUL WORLD

BEAUTIFUL ORANGE SUNRISES, GORGEOUS RED SUNSETS,

AND IN BETWEEN A PRETTY BLUE SKY

FLUFFY WHITE CLOUDS THAT STAND SO TALL,

GOD MADE THIS WORLD FOR ONE FOR ALL

 

I NEED YOU

I need You Father at the core of my being

You fill my mind with ease

You comfort me

And make my anxietys quietly disappear

From time to time they rise

And that's being honest with myself

But glorious Lord

 Controller of everything

Who is in me

I call out Your name

My heavenly Father

Whom I love

With all respect due to

I need You everyday of my life

I shall call out Your name

And give You thanks for loving me

 

CALLING YOUR NAME

I'M HUMBLED, YOU CAME

GAVE MYSELF TO YOU LORD

YOUR LOVE STRUCK A CHORD

THROWING UP MY HANDS

I GAVE YOU MY HEART

THE LOVE THAT YOU SHOW

UNSPEAKABLE, IT GLOWS

GIVING IT MY ALL

SUMMER, SPRING, WINTER AND FALL

 

God's Love

His love is so comforting

I trust that everything will be alright

There's faith in hope of tomorrow

Everlasting love for my Father

He loved us so

He sent His one and only

That we should live forever

My love endureth for Jesus

The Father, the Son

Full of kindness, gracious indeed

To bless upon us all

The precious gift of love

 

THANKSGIVING PRAYER

A BOUNTIFUL FEAST GRACED UPON

GLORY TO GOD AND THE SON

EAT, DRINK AND BE MERRY I SAY

BUT FIRST BOW YOUR HEAD AND PRAY

THANKING GOD FOR EVERYTHING

IN JESUS NAME, OUR LORD OUR KING

 

Treasure each day that you live

Always be able to forgive

Spend precious time with those you love

As God smiles down from above

Time is short and goes by fast

So make the beautiful memories last

 

God was with me, He was there from the begining.  The weight of the world on my shoulders burdened me.  I looked at life once upon a time with an illusion of delusion, in a state of seemly eternal depression, sadness and total despair.

But God, my Heavenly Father, picked me up, dusted me off and said, "You have passed the test.  The new life that you so desperately want, I give to you.  Go forth and tell the world how great I am, as if they already don't know.  Maybe they will begin to see, maybe they will begin to hear.  I, almighty God, can do everything and is powerful beyond belief. I almighty God love you.  You must love one another."

We have to build a relationship with each other as well as God.

 

LET US NOT ABUSE OUR BODY OR SOUL

IF WE DO WE FAIL, WE SHALL FOLD

THE WORD OF GOD CAN LIFT YOU HIGH

YOU'LL TAKE FLIGHT, YOU'LL BEGIN TO FLY

 

GIVING GOD ALL THE GLORY, ALL THE PRAISE...PRAYING EVERYDAY, THANKING MY FATHER FOR BLESSING US TO SEE ANOTHER DAY, THANK YOU GOD FOR GIVING US ALL THAT WE NEED AND STILL YOU BLESS US WITH EVEN MORE.  PRAYING FOR STRENGTH TO GET THROUGH THIS LIFE.   KEEP OUR MINDS ON YOU FATHER AS WE GO THROUGH OUR DAILY LIVES, LOVING YOU FOREVER LORD, IN JESUS NAME.

 

YOU ARE JUST SO AWESOME TO ME FATHER, EVERYTIME YOU COME THROUGH FOR ME, I AM HERE TO SPREAD THE GOOD NEWS OF YOUR LOVE, WHICH IS PRICELESS AND BEYOND BELIEF TO ME, I LOVE YOU GOD, IN JESUS NAME.

 

I need this relationship to get stronger everyday.  As I write now about this, I have a smile on my face and a song in my heart.  I feel the love.  But let me tell you this, I want to reach my relationship with my Father as high as I can go here on earth.  I want to build my confidence as much as I can in God.  I love Him so.  I want to get to know Jesus as much as I can.  I need my Father's strengthing, I got His love.  I'm happy and I have God to thank for this, in Jesus name.  I believe that good things don't just happen, God intervenes.  Good you know is God, He is in everything that is good.
