Expect Opposition

The following is an excerpt from His Delight: 31 days of Praise and Worship

It’s Not About You

Here is an excerpt from His Delight 31 days of Praise and Worship.
Enjoy!
There is a popular Christian chorus that starts with the words, “I forget about myself and concentrate on you to worship you”. Worship is about you presenting your life as a living sacrifice to Him. Often,I have heard Christians say things like, “I did not really enjoy the praise songs today” or, “I did not ‘flow’ with the worship songs”; or even “I do not like the […]

I AM

Enjoy another poem from the Shoetry collection
See and know that I am He,
I am He and beside me there is no other;
I am He the cause,
I am He the effect,
I am He who sits in heaven who rests His foot upon terra firma;

The trees to grow,
The birds to sing,
The stars to twinkle, to shine, to constellate;
I am:
The uncreated Creator,
The immovable Mover,
The unshakeable Shaker,
The unchangeable Changer,
I […]

Out of the storm brings peace and tranquility,
Out of despair gives life changing joy,
Out of abject poverty shows the riches of His grace,
Out of weakness brings prevailing strength,
Out of the mire of hopelessness produces a hope and […]

His Delight(Praising Him)

The following is another excerpt from His Delight. It is a doxology, which is a prayer of praise. Be blessed!
Father of Lights in whom there is no variation or shadow of turning, hallowed be Your Name. How great You are Lord.
You blot out sins and never remember them again. Thank you merciful King for I know there is no sin too big for you to forgive.
Cleanser and Restorer, Baptizer in the Holy Ghost; the One who saves and saves […]

My Life Sucks!

The following is an excerpt from my book His Delight:31 days of Praise and Worship.
You  may be reading this and thinking, my life is a mess, I have nothing to praise   God for. Let me challenge you: you do have something to praise God for and it   is just human nature to focus on all that is going   wrong instead of even a few things that are going right. When I am in the  dumps, I try to […]
