God can send help through a bird!

The prophet Elijah suffered and endured great hardships. Elijah almost died from starvation, God sent a bird to help. If the Lord can send a raven to save Elijah, do you think He can send someone or something to get us through despair?




"The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drank from the brook." 1 Kings 17:6.

When the Bible says that ravens brought Elijah food-
- it doesn't mean they took his order,
- flew through the local fast food restaurant,
- and then delivered his meal.

Ravens are scavengers!
They brought little bits of meat and bread to Elijah. What's more, the water in the brook from which he drank would have been somewhat polluted. It was not an easy situation.

Elijah could have said:
"Lord, I don't really want to be in this crummy little place. I kind of like being in front of people. I like the limelight."

But the Lord was preparing Elijah for something beyond his wildest dreams. Not long after this, Elijah would be standing on Mt. Carmel in that great showdown with the false prophets.1 Kings 18:20–39.


Sometimes we don't like where God has put us. We say, "Lord, I don't like this situation. I don't like where I am. I want to do something great for You. I want to make a difference in my world."

Maybe the Lord wants you to be effective right where you are.
Maybe He wants you to take advantage of the opportunities in front of you and be faithful in the little things.

Who knows what God has in store for you?

If God has you by some muddy little brook-- so to speak, just hang in there!

Be Faithful!
- do what He has already told you,
- and wait on Him,
- and on His timing.

God will do something wonderful for you and/or with you.  Just be available! And be open to do what He would have you to do! Will you say, "Amen!"

                 Inspirational and Spiritual Poetry

We all need inspiration and encouragement. Sometimes just a kind word can be a blessing and it can help us get  through our darkness hour!! During those struggling times, I try to find some inspiring words to share and comfort. A good encouraging word can turn someones life around.

"He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted and proclaim LIBERTY to the captives."
Isaiah 61:1

                                  My Testimony 

I was born and raised in Detroit MI. I grew up in an unstable home. My father physically and mentally abused my mother. His abusiveness had an adverse effect on me as well as my siblings. It caused homelessness and a lot of mental anguish. It also caused a great deal of hardship and grief.

As a result, I did not attend school regularly. I developed a leaning disability. I did not like going to school. I could not read and comprehend like other kids in elementary. I struggled though middle school and eventually dropped out in the 9th grade.

 I did not get involved in any criminal activity during this time, but I wasn’t doing anything constructive with my life either. I was not interested in sports or anything else that would make my life better.

 I began smoking marijuana at around sixteen years old. I tried alcohol, but didn’t like the taste or the feeling of being drunk. So I stuck with smoking weed until I meet crack in 1984.

 My life quickly grew out of control. I lied, cheated, and stole to support my crack habit. My only purpose in life was to get high. I lost friends and family members trust and respect. Getting high was all that mattered to me.

 At twenty-seven, I committed my first felony that lead me to prison. It was one of the worse experience s of my life. I was completely lost and did not know or understand just how serious things were.

 As result of my insanity, I went to prison several more times. My last visit was indeed the lowliest and darkest periods in my life. I lost all hope about myself. Despair became my best friend as I sit in the cold jail cell. I thought of ways to end my life because I did not want to go through the pain and suffering anymore. But at my lowest moment, something happened. The Lord came and touched my heart and gave me a reason to continue on.

Today, I use my experience to help inspire and uplift others. I want my poems to glory God and give encouragement and inspiration to the "Brokenhearted"
