It is not in our power to create great things; great things are created thru us by His power alone.

I stop in stride at times, I reminise after inquiry, I remember when prompted and speak when spoken to, i revel in the smile of others and enjoy my walk in Him. - J.Diamond Collection

You've held onto it for so long. You knew it was fragile in the first place. And everytime u felt it slipping away you'd go into rescue-mode. You didn't know? That HE was whispering to u each time and preparing you for the moment that was sure to come. It still seems so powerfully uncomfortable, but He was clearing a path straight to you. It's you and HIM now, run to HIM and find your comfort.

I can see it easing up from behind the hills. Can hardly gaze at it (got stuff to do) but its presence is imminent, increasing in its own glory. Its changing the atmosphere and nuthin in its path escapes all the hope, the mercy, the impending comfort it ensures. Its heavy on our skin and lite in our eyes - its the newest day, the latest opportunity for us to make crooked paths straight - J Diamond

Mercy is but only the anchor-blessing He gives when again we rise. Realize the inevitable, relax, enjoy the ocean of goodness He sends to wash over your soul as cares n concerns drift...away. - J Diamond

I move and sway to the beat and rythm of a heart filled with memories, daily bread, and an anxious HOPE... for more...

An unfathomable, deliberate, awe-inspiring reminder that even in His tenderness, allbeit His presence, we are humbled and wise to fear!

God shared his love with a person like me - that was Grace. I still have it - THATS Mercy....

Wounded soldiers don't lay down and die. There's a thing inside them that propels them forward till they reach safety, a calming, soothing audible that whispers sweet peace and assures him that he's gonna live, he's gonna make it, just hold on. Even when the bullets still fly, hold on...ur gonna make it "....I KNOW God's watchin me

There are so many ways to hurt a friend and although apologies are made and times' steady breeze has blown the tense moment away, it only takes one sharp angry word to tip the love balance and change a friendship forever... relax....

Its the 10th mile of a swim off the coast of Kent in the English Channel...13th round Manilla-Ali's corner... ur 18 of 30 thousand ft in 80 below and hurricane-force wind before Mt Everests' peak in Tibet... ur dying slowly with still 14 miles running to Copley Square in Boston...
...your wounds have succumbed you to extreme groaning silence with painful difficulty breathing, blood leaking from gaping holes in your body; u could bow out HERE -u dont.
Who has this WILL? Each effort has its price, its prize, its own momentary prison...Extraordinary men did... The Son of Man does...

HE is so there, the Gate is ajar, they've already begun in some time zone. I hear chants, hymns, shouts, clapping, voices of praise, an entire, enumerable Host assembles in crazy excitement to perhaps get a glimps of Yahweh, who sits upon The Throne and who's eyes are fixed upon The Gate - waiting; for me and you to come to Worship.

Cant u see it, cant u- feel it, almost hear it - yes, and even taste it; a force of light so powerful so omnipresent that no thing, tangible or miniscule in our vast universe escapes it. Then on this soft morning my heightened senses say, SELAH and confess that the only way the sun doesnt find you is; you deliberately hide from it...there IS a mirror here.

Acts of love dont need translation, presumption, planning. Only blind catalysts and grateful recipients that passionately reciprocate.

There are moments when I feel especially guilty. God has given me a peace so far removed from the norm that even after it settled in me I have trouble identifying it. But, I enjoy it; the guilt lies in this alone - I dont deserve it

Our world disgraces Right into discouragement... And declares Wrong into encouragement...
And His People, with powerful truth buried beneath our tongues, into fearful silence

Hurt women who don't know when they've been chosen...
Hurt men who don't know when to choose...
...so ne'er the twain shall meet!
