The River of Revival
a Holy Spirit rain
leaving the familiar
nothing is the same
The River of Salvation
crashes upon my shore
Listening as you speak
I want to know You more
River of Living Water
wash over me in grace
Drench me in Your Spirit
Jesus your Name I praise
River of Deliverance
is all my eye can see
Wells of living water
spring up inside of me
River of Redemption
restores me faithfully
Following the Spirit
flows to eternity



The Lord is My Banner

The Lord is My Banner

The Lord is my banner
My guiding principle
The one I follow
In battle and in peace
On the way to war
He goes before
Jehovah Nissi
Lead us as we pray
In the battleground its planted
Waving in the breeze
Reminds us what were fighting for
Honor is waving free
In the fight we wave it
Triumph over enemies
Reignite our passion
to not give up and run
When the battle is over
We parade it proudly
On display for all to see
Celebrate our victory

“The LORD keeps you from all harm and watches over your life.”Psalm 121:7 NLT

God’s arm is full of power and might,
His hand is strong and high
He lifts His arm and delivers me,
my enemies they flee.
The Lord is my shield,
He is my exceeding great reward,
My tower from the enemy,
my shelter in the storm.
The Lord is my protection,
His glory encamps around me.
His fire devours my enemies,
His deliverance I see.
The fire of God surrounds me,
He keeps me me from all harm.
Evil cannot touch me,
I’m protected by His arm.
There is power from His mighty hand,
salvation from His arm.
His strong right hand and powerful arm
enforce the victory.
Though 1000 stand on one side,
and 10,000 more beside,
My Lord lifts up His mighty arm
and then delivers me.
He is my shield of protection,
He watches over my life.
His glory is all around me,
His protection covers me.


This is a poem I wrote back in 2003.  I used to go to a lot of 12 step meetings trying to “find myself”. As a result of that, I put a lot of labels on who I thought I was.  I was wrong. Today I let God define who I am.

These are my thoughts, and I do not intend to offend anyone going to a 12 step program.  I did for about 10-15 years. It helped me for a time.   I’m just saying, there is more. God can and will deliver us.  There is healing and deliverance in Jesus Christ.


What if addictions were a lie?

What if the cravings – want to, got to have it,

weren’t reality?

What if the truth could set you free?

What is what is – is yet to be?

What if He’ll give you eyes to see?

The difference between lies and reality.

So stop, be still, He’s there.

Admit you can’t – He can.

He can – He will – He did.

He died for you and for me;

and paid the price for all eternity.

You’ve accepted that – confessed it too.

Now just be still.

Accept His Life –

He died to give it to you.


So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer.  Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! (2 Corinthians 5:16-17 NIV)
 They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony;they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. (Revelation 12:11)

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.  We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God,and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.  (2 Corinthians 10:3-5)


Dear Lord,
You know who we are, we were made in Your image.  Forgive us for thinking we knew all the answers.  Open our eyes to see us from Your perspective today.  We cast down any high and lofty thought we have about ourselves that has risen to be King of our imagination.  You alone are King Jesus. Show us who we are Lord, in Jesus Name.
