My next few blogs will be poems I wrote over five years ago.

As we go in to 2019, I pray that we may all be transformed for the better. I pray that we may be filled will love, joy, peace and kindness towards one another.


We evolve not in body

But we should be transforming our minds,

As we grow in relationship with Jesus

His precious gems we’ll find.


Jesus speaks to our mind,

He is real, He’s not fake,

We view Him like a terror

But the enemy’s words we take.


Instead of letting God transform our minds

We readily give into Satan and his temptations,

All knowledge of Jesus and our minds transforming,

Is met with much repudiation.


When we let our minds expand,

Jesus opens our eyes to things in His big universe.

But most of us are content to remain limited,

Living under Satan and his curse.


God’s creation sings praises to Him,

The space all around us, the sea and the wind,

While God’s little children walk on in darkness,

Looking for someone that will defend them.


The children keep walking

Looking on the outside, and refusing to look within,

Satan keeps smiling;

He knows they are trapped in his web of sin.


Some of God’s little children decides to take a chance,

Looking with their minds,

Lo and behold, Jesus is there,

He really is; what a marvelous find.


The little children are still in the fire,

But now the flames are barely warm.

There is a shift in their thinking,

They are now going against the norm.


As others around them squirm

Growing more afraid of things to come,

They in their minds are growing;

Growing closer to God’s Almighty Son.


There is lots of shaking and rattling,

But the children hang firmly to God, showing Satan no fear,

He cannot understand how he lost them,

The children no longer feel his sneer.


Seek to adorn the inner, which is your mind,

Not paying too much attention to the outer head.

The Holy Spirit is waiting within to be acknowledged,

He is alive, just accept Him, He is not dead.


Thanks be to God,

Transforming in the mind is to undergo a total change

Believe in Jesus with all your mind

And from all harms and dangers,

With our minds settled on Him, we will never be derange.

  1. Happy New Year!!

    With God’s help we CAN be transformed for the better.

    I don’t believe in resolutions. However, for 2019 I asked God to help me so that I will tnot conform to the norms and expectations of this world. But that he will transform me and by renewing my mind help me to become the woman that HE created me to be. Not who the world or society say I should be.

    1. Amen Andria. I pray that God will move mightily for you this year and may you, me this whole nation be transformed to walk in a way as God would want us too.
