FREESTYLE FRIDAY-"TRIED AND TRUE"

Friday, October 17, 2014

Happy Friday my dear Sparkler's emoticon

Coming at you a little differently today. First, I must apologize to all of you who came by last Friday. I'm using my cell and I'm not able to properly thank you with a goodie. I will but emoticon so very much for your patience. emoticon These words today is to encourage you in this race to Greater Victory! I'm persevering as I post this poem today. May the Lord bless you real good with an overflowing portion of His Love.





"Tried and True"

We are not like the blind who can't see
We look further into eternity
Our eyes are open
We are hopin'
But we truly believe
That anything can be achieved
For it is conceived
Beforehand
We make a demand
On the grace
Inside by faith
Never forsake
The tools supplied
They help us to abide
And thrive
In a world turned upside
Down
Filled with frowns
Of negativity
Because of lack of liberty
But we are called
And have been hauled
Up and out
Of these tough
Times
To find
Hope
God spoke
And it was so
He knows
When we are down
Yet He turns us around
Pointing our paths
So we won't lack
In any way
Just say
The Word without doubt
Open wide your mouth
Speaking out loud
For we are a troop
Tried and true
Looking for the new
That God reveals
As He fills
Our lives to overflowing
With wisdom that keeps us growing
Stronger in every way
It's such a great day!
By Deborah Edwards 10/17/14

emoticon Praise the Lord! !! This was hard on the cell but I HAD to get it done

FREESTYLE FRIDAY-"CLOUDS OF GLORY"

Friday, October 10, 2014



Hello and Happy Friday My Dear Blessed Family! emoticon

So excited to have you come by! My ambition is to give inspiration and ignite excitement to be in the Kingdom of Righteousness. This poem came to me as I was flying. I looked out of the window a little bit after we took off. And the Lord literally flowed in my heart with these words. It's amazing how some people can't appreciate what Our Father has done for us. He created a place where we can thrive and see beauty ALL the time. That's how WE are supposed to see things. We are IN this world but NOT of it. His creation is for OUR amazement! Richly enjoy it. I just LOVE the LORD and what HE is doing NOW! I persevered! :)





“Clouds of Glory”

As I peered into the clouds in the sky…
While riding high…
In the air above the earth…
I saw the worth…
Of God’s creation…
Such inspiration…
In the beauty…
And glory…
Of His work…
My eyes begin to lurk…
Then they closed…
When I thought of those…
Who won’t believe…
Even when they see…
The magnitude…
And latitude…
Of God’s grace…
I turn my face…
Up with gratitude…
I can’t elude…
The beating inside…
Then we dive…
Slowly…
I peer up hopefully…
Such pureness in the blue…
Sky and some oceans too…
I look through…
A light…
It’s hard to fight…
The urge…
And surge…
To shout…
Out loud…
Because the bubbling up…
Of such…
Jubilee and praise…
Makes it hard not to raise…
My voice…
Above a whisper and rejoice…
When I see…
All the beauty…
That He…
Created for you and me…
The clouds…
Make me smile…
For there’s more than the eyes…
Can visualize…
The glory cloud…
Like a shroud…
Is a covering…
A holy hovering…
That changes us…
From who was…
To who are…
The past is a mar…
It’s forgotten…
Not written…
We are lifted…
And fitted…
Into our positions…
Without restrictions…
As we begin to see through…
Clouds of glory so pure!
By Deborah Edwards 10/10/14

    Very good! I have many memories of flying, taking off under some of the ugliest, most threatening of clouds, only to burst through to fly above them and see the beauty of the other side! The pure light shining on those same clouds, making them pure white with brilliant glow of the sun's light. I think that most who struggle to see and recognize the beauty of God in His creation and in this life is because we fail to soar with Him above the clouds of adversity we see from the ground. Until we can soar like the eagle to heights unknown on wings of believing faith with spirits set free to believe, we cannot see the Son Light making everything beautiful on the other side. Thanks for the journey up memory lane to the place of remembering these truths anew. PRAISE BREAK!

    Love your jump for joy picture at the end. God would not have any perish but left that choice in our hands. Like fire and light, God chose to manifest himself in the cloud that led His people those 40 years in the wilderness and God addressed people with His voice coming from a cloud so how befitting Christ will come to His kingdom on a cloud of Glory.

FREESTYLE FRIDAY-"THE JOY WITHIN"

Friday, October 03, 2014



Welcome to the 1rst Friday In October! emoticon emoticon

I'm sure you're filled with JOY since I posted another poem under 300 words lol. This is where my heart is. Seated in Heavenly Places IN Christ Jesus. I'm sure you also think of the Soon Return of Our Savior. I love putting into words what my heart is yearning for so here's another one. We are to talk about it all the time. We are also to LOOK UP. Keep your hearts ON God's Kingdom and don't let ANYTHING in this world steal the JOY of Heaven's Promise. We'll have another Blood Moon eclipse on October 8, 2014 so remember to LOOK UP and see the SIGNS in the sky. JESUS IS COMING SOON!





“The Joy Within”

When I think about the joy within…
And when…
Jesus will take us homeward bound…
I leap for joy and leave the ground…
As if flying…
I look up and I’m spying…
To see if He’s in the clouds…
I listen to hear that shout…
Pulling us up…
There’s such…
A Presence in my praise…
I often longingly gaze…
Into Heaven from my heart…
How I’m ready to depart...
And bow in His holy presence…
While taking residence…
In Glory…
No more hoary…
Heads or wrinkled skin…
We are filled with joy within…
Nothing will compare…
To being THERE…
Sitting in a treasure…
And pleasure…
With those running here and there…
You can’t help but stare…
Into the glare…
Of pure holiness…
God’s finest…
Brought forth by goodness…
Manifested as Light…
What a sight…
For bright...
Eyes…
Piercing the skies…
Watching and praying…
Patiently waiting…
Because that joy within…
Will never come to an end!
By Deborah Edwards 10/03/14



...AND IT'S CONTAGIOUS!!! Spread it wherever you go so that others may know that you are eagerly awaiting Jesus' SOON Return!!!

Thank you for your encouragement and prayers. The effectual fervent prayers of the Righteous avails much! They're WORKING! Praise the Lord!
Love & Blessings!
Deb

    Beautiful as always, Deb. Thank you. At first I read "Such a Presence in my peace!" My heart lept. I guess that was from Father for my heart. Praise is good to have PRESENCE in too, and it is required for true worship. But with these days that are so disturbing as we watch all unfold, how greatly we need "Such a PRESENCE in our PEACE!" Love you lady.

FREESTYLE FRIDAY-"A GENTLE COMMANDING"

Friday, September 26, 2014



HAPPY FRIDAY DEAR FRIENDS! emoticon emoticon

Here I am again pressing through with what I love to do!!!I share what God puts in my heart. I write as I hear. So this is where this poem came from. This is another poem about prayer. I thin we all realized that we should be doing more of it especially in these times. Be bold and allow the Spirit of God to lead your way. Let go and yield. MANY important things we need to pray out. Prayer is simply talking to God in Jesus' Name and faith in our heart that He hears us. We also than God that we have what we pray for since we believe. Amen!!! So be it! Let's pray!




“A Gentle Commanding”

As I am standing…
There’s a gentle commanding…
All over me;
I fall to my knees…
And raise my head to see…
Who was there;
The air…
Was electric with ;power;
I bloomed like a flower;
Praying…
With a sound that’s distinct…
It links…
My heart to Heaven;
And then…
Light is diffused;
I want to be used…
By the Most High…
And fly…
Into all He represents…
And send…
His declarations…
To the Nations…
While I declare…
In my prayer…
The ending…
From the beginning…
As a glaring…
Brilliance…
Defeats any resistance…
Of those in the air…
Running here and there;
I’m clearing the way…
Removing the prey…
I boldly say…
The Word with boldness;
For I come in His Righteousness…
Creating…
And anticipating…
What I proclaimed…
Has been obtained;
So I urge you to be…
A person on their knees…
Sowing seeds…
Of God’s Will…
So that all might be filled…
With all of Jesus’ Fullness;
Expecting nothing less;
Now I’m coming down with a smooth landing…
Guided by His gentle commanding.
By Deborah Edwards 9/26/14



Spending time with God in Prayer helps Us to ALWAYS let Our Light SHINE!


My eyes are still blurry but better in some ways. Thanks to all who are praying for me. When you do something that is 'hard' it helps to get to the other side of that thing. I thank God that I have Eyes that SEE!!

Appreciate all the support!!! This is something I plan to take further. A seed in my heart since I was in the 5th grade. YOU help me to persevere!
Love & Blessings!
Deb

FREESTYLE FRIDAY-"MY AIM"

Friday, September 19, 2014




Hello and Happy Friday My DEAR Friends! emoticon emoticon

Today's effort has been one of LOVE and DETERMINATION to get this done! I've had some difficulty with my vision today and been a bit slow. Not much Sparking after I logged some of my nutrition. Then I couldn't see clearly as I attempted to continue. BUT I'm persevering to get this blog up early. I was frustrated for a moment but I just waited. I had some of my words already written then the Spirit gave me the flow. Didn't know where it would go but this is my AIM. Besides having PERFECT sight! :) These words came from my heart to God. I want you to thin about what YOUR aim is in God's Plan for YOU! Also think about this journey here. God works in ALL areas of our lives. WE have to allow Him to show us the BEST way! (NOW if you see some strange words remember what I told you! lol)




“MY AIM”

Created to thrive…
I’m so glad to be alive!
As I walk in the truth…
I see the Word is living proof;
Suddenly I’m drenched in His grace;
Such a loving embrace;
I’ll never be alone;
My heart has become a throne…
For all the fullness-
Of Jesus Who loves me best;
Taking the time…
As I am refined-
In love that brings…
The necessary things;
It’s not extravagant;
But excellent;
Because of God’s ability…
I’m anchored in stability;
Not doubting or complaining…
But always remaining-
In faith that works by love…
I take off the kid gloves-
And grow up completely;
I don’t serve secretly…
I’m loud and proud-
I’m hungry for the glory cloud;
No one has ever loved me…
So thoroughly…
As the Almighty;
And I will never turn my back…
Nor slack-
Concerning His Word…
That I have stirred-
Up inside…
And applied-
To my life;
I cast off anger and strife…
Pressing forward-
And upward…
Where my aim-
Is my everlasting gain!
Deborah Edwards 9/19/14





Determination will get us to our DESTINATION! What do you think that is? Revelation tells us and MANY other Books of the Bible. Don't YOU Love the WORD of GOD!! I'm pressing and keeping my eyes on JESUS the Author and Finisher of my faith. Your's too! :)

Thank YOU for spending time with me today. I tell the truth when I say YOU inspire me. I LOVE writing and creating work that inspire. Enjoy a beautiful weekend! LOVE AND BLESSINGS!
