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!
Deb

    Aiming to please God in all things; to be in the Light as He Himself is in the Light; to live LIFE to the full and abundant; to rejoice in God despite circumstance; to follow Him to the end of days; and that is only the beginning. In Christ, nothing is beyond our reach when we are in HIM. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Love this poem. If we keep our ultimate aim in sight, we will have our priorities straight and spend our time and talents on what will advance us to our goal. Can hear Paul shouting a giant "Amen. Praise the Lord."

FREESTYLE FRIDAY-"CITIZENS OF HEAVEN"

Friday, September 12, 2014



Happy Friday My Wonderful Friends Whom I Love! emoticon

I apologize for the lateness of this FF poem for those who are looking for it early. I did go to bed before midnight and when I woke at 5 am I forgot to STAY up since I didn't write ANY of it yesterday. lol BUT you'll read it if you're supposed to. I had the hardest time keeping my hands on the keys and I declare the Healing Power of God upon these Anointed hands HE gave me for this purpose! In Jesus' Name! Thank YOU for your patience!





“Citizens of Heaven”

We gather together as one…
Under Jesus the Son-
Each part working with spiritual instinct…
The sacrifice of Jesus is our link-
To this glorious fight…
Secured by Heaven’s might-
We do not fear the faces…
Of those who are out of their places-
Attempting to defame God’s graces…
They have never tasted-
His security…
Nor known true liberty-
But we have love as our roots…
We know the truth-
That we are never forsaken…
Nor will we be taken-
With evil like others…
Who refuse the Word and smother-
Their hearts with deceit…
Nothing can defeat-
This Body of faith…
For we put our stake-
In the light of righteousness…
And confess-
That His goodness…
Holds us tight-
The fight…
Is not for the weak-
Whose trust leaks…
Out of their hearts-
At the start…
Of any storm-
That attempts to harm…
And forget their sanctification-
And restoration…
Back to life-
That was cut with the knife…
Of deception;
Our reception-
Is loud and clear…
We turn and hear-
What the Spirit is saying…
As we are praying-
For He speaks…
And keeps-
Us informed…
Regardless of the storms-
That is only a little wind…
That can’t end-
Our destiny…
We see clearly-
And declare…
And dare-
Not turn back…
For we are not as those who lack-
A Home…
Ours is not made with brick or stone-
It’s built on a firm foundation…
Of dedication-
And obedience…
Not by the hands-
Of man…
Or chance-
But the romance…
Of the Spirit within-
Who eradicates sin…
And spins-
Our lives into what we ought to be…
Given freely…
And we understanding totally-
Then…
We know that now we’re Citizens of Heaven!
By Deborah Edwards 9/12/14



I'm SO ready! BUT I wait for those who need JESUS as LORD! Come to HIM just as YOU are! Repent of sin. Confess His Lordship over your life. Believe He's Your Savior. Declare that YOU are Saved! Born Again! A WINNER! Glory!

Thank YOU all of YOU for bringing YOUR Supply in the Spirit to my page.. I love YOU and your faithfulness! YOU inspire ME!!! Enjoy your weekend!
Love & Blessings!
Deb

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

I'm thankful that God hasn't given up on all those who are unsaved, but He is patiently waiting for them to come to salvation!

"BACK TO UNITY"

Thursday, September 11, 2014



God Bless You My Friends! emoticon

This was not planned but these words flowed during corporate prayer in me so I wanted to share. I remember exactly what I was doing on this day in 2001. A STRONG impact and that first week I almost lost WHO God created. Our Pastor LOUDLY told us to STOP sitting in front of the television watching that sadness attach to our spirits. Not that we didn't care but we had to be available for God. Let's REMEMBER that WE as a BODY of CHRIST are called to PRAY and BE examples to ALL around this world! Love to you ALL! In Jesus' Name may YOU move up higher in HIM and UNITE your heart to others!

"BACK TO UNITY"

What a cowardly act…
The 9/11 attacks-
Being used by Satan…
Against OUR Nation-
Did they not know…
That they would go-
Straight into a fiery Hell…
Oh well-
We were fueled to unity…
Pulling out the beauty-
Of our liberty…
That some don’t like-
America is a light…
A bright beacon-
For God’s reason…
United forever-
We’ll never…
Give up our freedom-
It’s ordained by the Kingdom…
Cowards can’t bring us down-
We gather around…
Our flag that flies-
High…
Representing the brave-
Who gave-
Their lives…
The reason we strive-
Strong…
Trying to get along-
For we must fight together…
In unity and never-
Again allow our backs…
To be stabbed;
Watch and pray-
These are restless days-
But soon Jesus will come and take us away!
By Deborah Edwards 9/11/14


THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPLY OF THE SPIRIT HERE TODAY. LET'S BE VIGILANT WATCHING AND PRAYING AGAINST THE TERROR THAT RUNS AROUND LIKE A ROARING LION BUT HAS NO TEETH!

Love & Blessings!
Deb

    Hi Deb ........... Lovely and good sound words to STOP watching the trauma and terror ........ I also have to remember this day is the 'most significant' day in my entire life as on 9-11-78 I gave my heart to the Lord Jesus .......... and I celebrate my 'new birth' and am forever thankful to God above and Jesus they loved me unconditionally and were there when I got born again on that evening. This birthday is actually more cherished to me than my natural birthday as this birthday will allow me to live FOREVER in the presence of our KING and heavenly Father ........ and I remember the event. I re watch Son of God in awe and loving gratitude for all He did ............... thanks for a great blog! Bless you Deb!

FREESTYLE FRIDAY-"EXPRESSIONS OF INTERCESSION"

Friday, September 05, 2014



Happy Friday Dear Blessed Friends! emoticon

I'm delighted to present another FF poem to you under the inspiration of the Spirit. The theme is prayer again. WE have to pray in order for God's Will to be done on Earth as it IS in Heaven. An exchange by faith! I'm excited about these words the Lord gave to me. The title explains the flow. It's an image and tells a true story. WE still need to pray more. In ALL manner of prayers. Eph 6 shows us the Prayer Armor that we should KEEP on. Paul admonishes us by the Spirit to PRAY always in ALL manner of prayers. By faith! Let's keep 9/11 covered by prayer NOW. No plans of the enemy can come to fruition. In Jesus' Name. Amen!






“EXPRESSIONS OF INTERCESSION”

I speak your Name…
Without shame-
My sin is cleansed…
Not just rinsed-
I enter with boldness…
By Jesus’ righteousness-
That’s big in me…
I want to see-
And live through…
His eyes and do-
Exactly what He would…
And I should-
For prayer is vital…
I don’t have to have a title-
To do it…
The Spirit-
Leads…
As I intercede-
Bringing God into…
The affairs of men who-
May not pray or know how…
I bow-
My heart…
So God can impart-
Words that bring change…
And even rearrange-
What already exist…
I assist-
And persist…
By God’s leading-
Pleading…
The Blood-
Releasing His love-
In spiritual communication…
That reaps physical manifestation-
The unseen to the seen…
I lean-
On the Lord’s direction…
With complete subjection-
By the Authority of the Spirit and Word…
I am like the birds-
Soaring into God’s Presence…
As His message-
Comes out in requests…
Entering into a rest-
Yet bold in might…
Praying the unseen into sight-
That’s manifestation…
After gestation-
Birthing God’s Will…
Hearts are filled-
With a flood of the joyful sound…
As answers abound-
Ignited by God’s perfection…
Resulting from the power of intercession.
By Deborah Edwards 9/05/14




Praise the Lord!


We pray because God SO loved the WORLD! That means ALL people. He wants HIS Will to be done in ALL of our lives. The Lord's prayer is a road map to prayer in a way. It's NOT the only way to pray. Search the Scriptures and SEE the many types of prayers. Salvation is the 1rst prayer for ALL to pray. Confess sins. Declare Jesus as Lord. Receive forgiveness. John 3:16

Thank YOU for coming this way today! My love abounds towards you and my heart is lifted! Enjoy a greater September I EVERY way! God's WITH Us!
Love & Blessing!
Deb

    We are so blessed that we can go directly to the Father with our praise and petitions knowing we have an Intercessor thee pleading our case. How amazing that the Creator of the universe would care so much that He hears our prayers. Few people would turn down the opportunity to talk privately with our president or other famous person, but do not take the opportunity to talk with our Savior.

    Amen! Praising God for this emoticon word through your beautiful poem.

As I read this, I sense the Spirit saying, as we pray prayers led by His Spirit, boldly going to the throne of grace in our times of need, we cooperate with Him by praying in faith, trusting in God, nothing wavering, in praying the unseen into manifestation, following Romans 4:17 and calling those things which do not exist as though they did. We must believe AND speak - not on the basis of what we currently SEE - but on what God Himself has PROMISED He WOULD do. emoticon emoticon

    Amen! Prayer is, in it's basic form, simply communication with God. As we submit to the Spirit within and allow Him to pray through us according to the perfect will of the Father in each person's life and situation, it becomes intercession.....standing in the gap between God and the enemy on behalf of another!

FREESTYLE FRIDAY-"WE WON'T FIGHT IT"

Friday, August 29, 2014



Happy Friday Dear Friends! emoticon

Welcome to the last Friday of August! Times are moving fast these days! I'm glad about it too. This poem is to remind us of the times and to not take the care of the things going on in the world. God has already given us His Word that tells us what will happen. These are the times that WE have NOTHING to fear. God's Word says that WE are saved from the evil to come. Wars and rumors of wars will continue. Stay strong in the Lord and walk IN the Spirit. He's the One Who guides us into ALL the Truth. There's NOTHING to fear!





"WE WON'T FIGHT IT"

God has reasons…
For His times and seasons-
And He declares them in the sky…
As the clouds roll by-
In times of old…
That’s how they were told-
What would unfold…
Now we have a Light-
That’s out of sight…
Living deep inside-
Revealing the restless tide…
So that we will not be alarmed-
When the Nations swarm…
One against another-
Trying to uncover…
Their weakest link-
But we can’t sink…
Into fear and anxiety-
Forgetting God’s reliability…
These things have been predicted-
Don’t let your hearts become conflicted…
None of this can move you-
Trust God and He’ll prove it too…
He set our feet on solid ground-
No shakiness can be found…
A foundation that’s strong and deep-
Catches hold of our blessed feet…
Pulling us into the deep-
Where waves can’t toss us about…
And the angels loudly shout-
A Body with no spots of sin…
We know the truth and we win-
Faithful we stand…
Hand in hand-
Hearts united…
We won’t fight it!
By Deborah Edwards 8/29/14




We have been SEATED in CHRIST by GOD! JESUS Put His OWN Spirit IN US! ONE BODY KNIT TOGETHER IN LOVE! We WON'T Fight It! JESUS IS LORD!

Thank you all for coming by today. I truly am blessed by all of you. Nothing just happen so if you're here receive what the Spirit is saying to YOU. I'm receiving what He's saying to ME too! I pray you ALL enjoy a Love filled Holiday weekend and that the Lord COVER your paths with the Blood of Jesus and protect your going out and coming back in Jesus' Name!

Love & Blessings!
Deb
