Raising hands to our God on high, with head bowed in submission,
Tears flow fast as our eyes do cry, repentance and petition,
The words seem empty as we pray, but God will send His Spirit,
He knows exactly what we say, so God will surely hear it,
We lay our prayers at Jesus’ feet, we know that He’ll stand for us,
Our every need we pray He’ll meet, He never will ignore us,

When troubles linger in our mind, all things seem problematic,
For Satan always tries to find, the glitzy and dramatic,
To tempt and draw us far from God, we don’t see through his lies,
We follow down a road less trod, we decide to compromise,
God’s given freedom from our pain, it isn’t complicated,
He died for us and rose again, His love He demonstrated,

And when our final day does come,
To God’s strong arms we’ll surely run,
With perfect souls to offer Him,
Christ paid for every single sin,
Our confidence in Him alone,
Will take us to our heavenly home.



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

  4. Amen! Kathy, your message serves as a timely reminder to believers and nonbelievers. Paul’s painting invites me to enter, and the waiting mysteries are filled with the Spirit.
