Black Friday

There was a lot of hustle and buzz

The news spread far, the lines were long

People from all over came, that’s just what everyone does

But they all had an opinion, some right, most wrong

This was a once in a while event

But today it drew more attention

Everyone who could go, went

The place was packed with people, gossip and tension

Black was the Friday when our Savior hung

From a cross where He drew His last breaths

Seven last words He withdrew from tired lungs

Before His collapse and ultimate death

But Sunday was coming with more than expected

Despite what the cross displayed

The plan of salvation remained unaffected

By the events of that Black Friday

Best Gift Ever

The real Christmas gift can’t be bought, just accepted.

Love Like No Other

Some time ago my fellow writer friend, Godswill of Christ A Poet, and I were discussing our love for Jesus. He asked if I’d like to write about it with him, the result of that collaboration is below. We called it Love Like No Other for two reasons: 1. His love is like no other and 2. He loves us like no other can. Without further ado, let me share this love with you:


It’s 4am in the morning
And one thing keeps me smiling
Feels like four Amens won’t do
When I hear of how much you love Jesus too

See there’s no other love quite like this one
He’s not just anyone, but The One
The Trinity: Father, Spirit, Son
This love renders one undone

Perfect present cleansing is this love
For me and you and 7 trillion others more
No truer song has ever been sung
Behold what manner of love the father has given unto us

This kind of love fills any void and colors in all grays
It’s how I draw each and every breath of my praise
This kind of love is untamed and unrestrained
Yes this love has a name, name above all names

Love so amazing (Amazon) it literally speaks life
Love so transforming; it’s 100% successful every time
Love so fulfilling it overflows: rivers of life
Love so immortal He never dies

If this love were a star, it would be a galaxy
If it were a drop, it would be the deep blue sea
If it were a minute, it would be eternity
It is something and simultaneously everything

Isn’t it odd that this Love is one so even
Isn’t it unforgivable the much we’ve been forgiven
Isn’t it inhuman his love for us humans
Isn’t it deep the height of this love from God for man

A free gift that paid the world’s most expensive debt
Blood-wash that leaves one white as snow
Removing the stains of sin, hurt, pain and regret
Priceless heirloom which on us was bestowed

Take a mirror and marvel: Love at work
Take a bible and Learn: Love’s architecture
Never was there any thing surer
Than this love of which we are born

The melody of my heartbeat is this love
The missing piece to every puzzle is this love
The song of my soul’s salvation is this love
The solution to every problem is this love

Sing aloud love’s song
Dance a jig for what love’s done
Love came for one and all
Love lives in all who answer the call

Like the season for this love I fall
Like the month I will march on and proclaim this love to all
This timeless gift is present and everlasting
It grows with every share, a love worth broadcasting

I relish in the thought of one day beholding love’s face
To see before me what was always within me: vase
Amazing love tis a sound so delish
I can only imagine what that would be

Oh the questions I’ll have when we meet face to face
Dear love, to be wrapped in your warm embrace
Yet somehow I feel all the questions may fade
But one thing I won’t hold back are the tears that’ll cascade

This love knew my pain and held on still
This love I threw away but he kept fellowship
This love I never deserved still he gave me him
This love I proclaim to see someday

Love that never led me astray
Love that always showed me the way
Love that made sure I was ok
Love is the reason I’m alive today

I dare say I love this love though so frail
For one thing, I’m sure would never fail
Is the love with which this love loves me every day
Hear me say I love this love once again

When once I tried my life to take
This love dove into my despair
When once I was shattered by heartache
My heart, this love, did mend and repair

When in doubt I stare at hopes gone
Love holds my hand and Faith restores
When words I cannot find to ease my heart
Love forms these lines that some call art

What’s in a name? What’s this love called?
This four-letter verb that has us enthralled?
The name, The Word, for a love so unique
That without it, my soul fades and my heart becomes weak

Perhaps when tomorrow will be in view
I would know what words could describe you
Perhaps my wonder as I stand in your view
Would let me see endless depths you love me through

This wonderful promise so amazing and true
It’s open to all, it’s available to you
Ready your heart for this gift we speak of
Christ’s unconditional and unchanging love

We testify of something so good for you
No need for diets you can’t overfeed on this truth
We write so you read and confess too
The love of God is true and for you

Take it All

Sometimes it’s easy to forget the things that really matter. We become overwhelmed with fitting into a standard set by society; status, looks, titles, material possessions and so forth. Truth is, none of that matters if we aren’t fulfilling our ONE job which is outlined in Mathew 28:19. Like the good book says: For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? I could lose it all but never Jesus, my salvation is so much more valuable.


I once thought these things were valuable, but now I consider them worthless because of what Christ has done.  (Philippians 3:7 NLT)

The Good Wine

In John 2 we find the passage where Jesus turned the water into wine. The MC’s (master of ceremonies) words got me thinking about life. It was customary to serve the best wine first. In this case, the water-turned-wine by Jesus, which was served last, was the best. Sometimes the first part of our day, week, month, year or life is not as good as it could be, but things change when Jesus steps in. Like the wedding in the passage, however, He is waiting for an invite into our heart. With Him by our side, we know that the best is yet to come.


A host always serves the best wine first,” he said. “Then, when everyone has had a lot to drink, he brings out the less expensive wine. But you have kept the best until now!  
(John 2:10 NLT)

Awesome God

You leave me in awe

The things that you’ve done for me

How you gave your life for me

When you went before me

And left my debt prepaid for me

So I give you my all

It’s not enough but more than enough for you

I will walk in your steps and live for you

As I stand here before you

Sealed with your spirit, postmarked by your love, I’ve no words for you

Yes, you leave me in awe

But some part of me always knew though

That my God is awesome

Son-rise

Rise and Shine!

The sun shines upon us once more

Each ray bringing the warmth of hope anew

The Son shines upon us once more

Each day bringing the joy of salvation for sinners alike, for me and you



Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.

(Isaiah 60:1 ESV)
