Glamorized Gifts

Science teaches that people are born that way,
but God is not the author of confusion;
He does not make mistakes; homosexuality
and the transgender movement are gifts
from the devil; they are an acceptable lifestyle
glamorized by the media and dressed up
nicely to attract the crowd.

Prostitute Preachers

The prostitute preachers sugarcoat God’s Word
to draw in the crowd; it’s nonstop smiling
as they enjoy their ice cream Sundays
with all the toppings, the prosperity, feel-good
message keeps the people entertained
with the option to pick out
their heaven-bound packages.

The Battle while Praying

I am working on being an effective
prayer warrior, sometimes when I pray
my mind strays off-topic, and I’ll lose focus
if I’m not careful, the devil will take it over
and plant many unpleasant images there;
there’s a spiritual battle going on for my life,
and weak prayers get intercepted by demons.

The Lord's Prayer Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV) 

9 Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: 
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

The Weight of Pride

Do you have too much PRIDE or too little? Is it
a curse or a blessing? Are you acknowledging
an accomplishment, or are you conceited?
Are you closer to God or farther away?
There’s a difference between “taking pride”
in a job well-done and looking down
on others with contempt in your heart.

Toolboxes

We’ve all experienced many of
the same obstacles at different stages
in our lives; depending on our mental health,
we might end up broken requiring constant
renovation; or we might end up more robust,
requiring regular maintenance; the hurdles are
just toolboxes (life lessons) for future reference.

Promises Break

Most promises don’t stand a chance;
they get broken as soon as they are spoken,
it’s hard to say “no,” in the heat of the moment;
most people end up biting off more than
they can chew; especially when reality hits
folks realize they’ve overextended
themselves and used those special tokens
of love as a weapon of disappointment.
