Awake, Alive, In you I thrive, I will thrive – Good Morning;
I was because I was – but because You are,
I AM because I was – because You are,
I will be what you called me to be – because You are.
What I knew of You is only a small fraction of what I now know,
To know You more is a desire that beckons my Spirit to grow.
Deeper understanding, greater knowledge of what I do and don’t do,
Kingdom Principles superseding social norms to provide a truer True;
A clearer reflection of what It is You’ve really done,
Making me to be “In Christ” with the Gift of your Son.
Amazed, Dumbfounded, Bolder, Courageous, yet more Humble;
A paradigm shift that decreases the possibility of a purposed stumble,
Pastoral Wisdom consistently enlightening, inviting me further on this journey,
An Apostolic Encouragement – Respect – worth more than money,
All tools in Your Hand, strengthening and conditioning a once ‘useless’ man.
Yet I am Yours: the good, the bad, the indifferent, the ugly, the ALL,
A fact that though it validates me, I seem to have lost at the FALL.
So here I sit, In you I stand, Made Better as all things Work together for Your Man,
Inspiring, Encouraging, Saving, Delivering Your People, and doing it Better,
Because I have a Greater sense of Purpose, reminded that every Endeavor,
Every opportunity is a Date with Destiny, a Product of Purpose,
Purposed to Inspire – as I am – called into Your Service.
I ask that In You I move, live, and have my being as a another day is dawning,
Awake, Alive, In you I thrive, I will thrive – Good Morning!
This poem is a bit of a personal testimony. It highlights the fact that ALL things work together for the good of them that love God and are called according to his purpose -- Romans 8:28. As you have read this, I pray that through whatever happens in this life that you will never lose sight of this verse of scripture. I pray that if you have not found your Purpose, that you diligently seek God so that He can reveal it to you. 2 Corinthians 5:17 states that: if any man be in Christ, He is a New Creation…I pray that just as God has opened my eyes to deeper understanding of this scripture that is radically transforming my life, He will do the same for you. I pray that you thank appreciate those who pour into you spiritually! Pastor Juan Cherry, Apostle Kathy Johnson, Apostle David Littlejohn, and so many others, God Bless you and Thank You!
Whether you find yourself: in a pit where you have broken promises, hurt others, seemingly ruined your destiny, in the throws of a physical ailment, jobless, homeless, feeling worthless, on the other side of those test with a testimony of God's Goodness, on the mountain top, financially stable, or any other place, know that this is a Journey; know that if you are going through it, because you chose it, God allowed it, and if you turn to Him or turn 'back' to Him, He can work it together for your Good. In fact, He wants to! Its never too late to find Him, let Him find You, and Rekindle your flame, change your name, place in you a purpose, make you marketable for His Service! God Bless You and Thank You for taking the time to read this devotion!!!!!!!
