Poetry: The Shepherd, Not The Sheep

Poetry: The Shepherd, Not The Sheep

Now I lay me down to sleep, But sleep won’t come how e’er much I try; So I start to count down the sheep, But they keep skipping away, so spry. So I say, in despair, oh my lordy! When lo and behold, a Voice says, Yes. I sit up in surprise and exclaim, Holy! The Voice replies, Indeed, and bless. I look all around and ask, who’s there? The Voice replies, ’tis Me, my own. I say, come forth…

The Preachy Preacher

The Preachy Preacher

“Don’t tell me what to do!” demands the person who’s telling me what to do. However, I won’t get into how contradictory and hypocritical that demand is. Rather, I am writing as to the reason for my particular page, Devotional And Inspirational. In fact, if we’re getting technical, then this involves this whole site. Why bother, you ask. The more you know, I say. No one cares, you insist. Well it’s my page, I reply. So here we are, me…

Fickle Faith

Fickle Faith

Hebrews 10:38-39 KJV “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. [39] But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul. When the boss is out-of-town, the office staff often proves the old adage, “When the cat’s away, the mice will play.” Compare this story in the Old Testament to the parable in the…

Poetry : Merry, Merry Heart

Poetry : Merry, Merry Heart

OH JOY, oh wonder, ‘tis glorious day – may it lasts, See the sparkling jewels embedded among the grass, See the pretty diamonds dripping among the leaves, Truly, joy it is to live in this bliss! Listen! It’s the music of the bubbling brooks, Now gay, how cheerful it gives one’s outlook! But hark! The mournful sound drifting near, ‘tis the haunted cry of the remorseful creature! Oh shepherd, see your charge is in sorrow, Perhaps it fears for another…

Remove The Mote

Remove The Mote

Matthew 7:3-5 KJV “And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

2 Peter 3:10 KJV “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” Every Christian h been expecting the Lord’s return during their lifetime. I remember my late grandma said that The King is coming soon. She said that she was ready…

Hinds’ Feet In High Places

Hinds’ Feet In High Places

Habakkuk 3:19 KJV “The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet , and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments.” I recently went to the cinema to watch the latest superhero movie. Truth be told, superhero movies are my guilty pleasure. Why do I watch them? Well, I’ve always loved action-adventure, and when you add in a good comedy, then that’s my…

The Essence Of Life

The Essence Of Life

Sometimes when the day dawns bleak and you feel like everything is so dark in your life, you wonder why you even bother getting out of bed. You don’t see the Sun shining bright; you can’t hear the birds singing or see the flowers blooming; you don’t hear laughter or voices talking in peaceful rhythm with each other. You feel so far apart from everything and everyone. Your soul feels alone and lonely. You wonder why you keep doing this…

Only God Is Good

Only God Is Good

Matthew 19:16-17 KJV “And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? [17] And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is , God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.” Since the beginning of time, people in general are enamored with goodness. Or rather, they are enamored with being good. It is such a…
