The Plucking….

To everything there is a season
Always a rhyme and certainly a reason
Never do we know, how long a season
May last
Much like we never know, when
April showers will pass
Word Press has been an amazing place for me
A field where I was planted back in two thousand sixteen
Here I’ve met a lot of people, brothers and sisters in Christ
Who will always have a special place in my life
I’ve grown a bit I think, at least it seems as much to me
How could I not have grown, with all this green grass from which I gleaned….

A daily diet of milk and meat
Balanced meals and even some sweets
God’s used it all in His special way
Knowing all along I would arrive at this day

A blessed farewell, I bid you adieu,
Keep up the GOoD work
Til the Lord says you’re through.

Love you guys,

Anthony Smith

Let Jesus lead you, ALL the way…..

From faith to faith and glory to glory
We must follow the Lord, Who’s the author of our story
Not always will we know, what each day will bring
Not always can we see, what’s coming around the bend
But as long as we follow, the Lord all the way

He’ll usher us into our predestined place
It’s a place so sweet, laid out for our feet
A place where His provision, peace and power do meet
Us to perform His perfect will in our lives
A place He created for us, just like the stars in the sky
When that promised place is near, there will be no doubt
Let patience have her way, and we’ll never go without
Keep the Lord in 1
st Place, never 2nd and certainly not 3rd
And He’ll always keep us covered like the smallest of the birds
We must always keep our hands, firmly gripped on the oar
Never looking back and we’re sure to soar
Into our predestined place on Eagle’s wings….

A blessed farewell, I bid you adieu,
Keep up the GOoD work
Til the Lord says you’re through.

Love you guys,

Anthony Smith

It’s not our job
To right the wrong
The injustices in the world
Bring music to each song

Image courtesy of

For we know not the difference
What’s good or evil too
The Father uses both equally
Benefiting some, others’ undoing

For he knows what it takes
To get his point across
To save lost souls
Ensuring none is lost

In a world of sin
Doubt and shame
All is done for his glory
To lift up his name

In the earth
As he did at our saviors birth

To send a go-between
In a man none has seen

Since his ascension
On high
As he was lifted
To the sky

To return again
The same way
But this time
To rule the day

And reign over all creation
His people, his flock, his nation

Of people chosen
from the foundation
To have a true relation

Ships not passing…

Ten Reasons Why You Can Trust The Hands Of God

Ten Reasons Why You Can Trust The Hands Of God

Becoming the Oil and the Wine

1. The Lord will deliver you from the enemies with a mighty hand. 

And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the Lord thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore the Lord thy God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day. (Deuteronomy 5:15)

2. The Lord’s hand will do great works in your life.

And when He was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;

Saying, blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. (Luke 19:37-38

3. You will receive double from the Lord’s hands because of your…

Use Them Well

Use Them Well

Tapping into your well….

New Hope for Dry Bones

I rarely write anything that directly asks anyone to do anything.  But today, for those that care to listen, I want to ask you to take a look at yourself and ask yourself a couple of questions.

“What are the gifts I have received from God?”

I’ve got a few.  I’m not quite sure that writing is one of them but communicating certainly is and that’s probably more important than how well I construct a sentence to satisfy the grammar police.

It is funny, though.  When I tried to use my gifts to satisfy myself, I managed to believe that I had somehow blessed myself with these talents and abilities.  There were quite a few times I just gave up on them because the talents and abilities I had never seemed to propel me as far as I thought they should.

But, when I began to serve God with all…

I’m A Work In Progress ~

The finished works of Christ…..

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

I’m a work in progress,
you likely are one too . . .
each day Jesus is working
in us something new.

His grace is transforming us,
to be sin fighting saints
He’s shaping us to live a life
with principles and restraints.

He is molding our minds,
to be clean and spotless
He shaping our hearts
to live pure and flawless.

He knows all the lumps,
that need to be reformed
He’s modeling our lives
till in Him we’re transformed.

We have unlimited potential,
He’ll never be finished with us
but, you and I must believe
His remolding is always just.

I’m a work in progress,
you likely too are one . . .
each day God is shaping us
into the image of His Son!


Philippians 1:6

“Being confident of this very thing, that he
which hath begun a good work in you will
perform it until…

Labor shortage..

America’s labor shortage is skyrocketing! But what’s interesting about this is the fact that this deficiency is being sorely realized in the blue collar positions. These are typically the hands on positions. They’re those jobs that are truly the spoke in the wheels that make EVERY organization go around and around. Blue Collar positions, while critically necessary, are also the ones less desired or applied for.

As I sat this morning the Lord said something to me that made a whole lot of sense! “NOW PEOPLE SEE HOW I FEEL!” All of a sudden He began saying:

This is nothing new, I’ve seen it before
I saw it as I walked the earth to and fro
As I taught, preached and healed all the people’s dis-eases
I looked around for some help cause there was sorely a need
With compassion, I looked in every nook and cranny
for someone to help out that poor ole’ granny
but every where I looked, many I never found
cause nobody wanted their hands to touch the ground
the dirt, the dust, the earth, the grime
nothing’s changed, just the TIME!

That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done,
And there is nothing new under the sun….Ecclesiastes 1:9..

“Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. 36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest…..Matthew 9:35-38…

The Road less traveled…

There’s a road less traveled
That only a few do find,
It’s narrow just like a needle’s eye
Riches can’t be used to gain admission
The currency accepted is a confession
That Jesus died but He rose again
With all power and authority in His hands
This confession is more than words you impart
These words are felt deep within the heart
They’re attached and tethered to one’s belief
That leads to a walk eternally
Along God’s path of righteousness
Where Jesus leads us by Himself…

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…..Romans 10:9..

“Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it…. Matthew 7:14

And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God…. Matthew 19:24..

He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake…Psalm 23:3..

A good name has the power to sock it to an ole’ devil…

The Lord used a very Dear friend of mine today to remind me of how significant our names can be, often times changing the tone and trajectory of any given day or any moment in our lives. What’s in a Name..Again?

Have we lost sight, of the significance of names
like Adam and Eve, and Abel and Cain,
Names have purpose and give meaning to life,
much like our Savior, Jesus, the Christ,
His name has power and authority,
even the demons tremble at the knees,
Our names are significant can’t you see,
So we shouldn’t toss them around frivolously,
combo names may speak of devotion and affection,
but if there’s no meaning, no significance, no direction,
a person may wander and wonder through the corridors of life,
being swallowed up whole by pain, misery, and strife,
they’ll find themselves on the seat of their britches,
cause instead of choosing a good name SOMEONE chose riches…

A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches..Proverbs 22:1
