My Worth is Determined and Given Me from God:

ANY WORTH OR RIGHT THAT I may HAVE comes from Almighty God; I have no right or authority of my own. That to me seemingly makes me worthless, makes me of little or no value, but when I read Gods Holy Word I am given pause to hope and to ponder, for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth on Him shall not perish but shall have eternal life. Many have come and gone but everyone that has walked this earth were only here because of His magnificent love and grace.  There [Read More…]

God’s Gentle Whisper: written & sang by GLH

To Lift You Up: written and sang by GLH

Living your Faith: GLH

Christianity is not a religion of exclusion and deceit but a relationship with God that promotes acceptance and love. If you study the Holy Bible in an attempt of finding the truth and not in attempting to distort or denying its accuracy, you will find that God’s love has been given unto every one, there are no exceptions or exclusions. No matter how hard you try, you will never prove one word of God’s Word to be untrue or out of place. God is not here to condemn man but to liberate him and to set him free (John 3:17-18).

God loves us so much. GLH

The number one dream or endeavor of a truly wise man is to do all he must to obtain the many promises of a righteous and all-powerful God; to obtain God’s magnificent blessings, not only for himself but for the community and the world that he lives in. This is not something that we sit and ponder; it should actively consume our total being. Holy God is truly beyond limits, and as we realize His true magnificence and unlimited potential, we begin to accept and revere the total splendor of His absolute glory and might.  How could such an awesome [Read More…]

LORD of ALL… GLH

God did not have to die in order to become important to man, God is the essence of all that humanity can ever hope and dream. The vicarious death of a righteous God is there to insure and maintain our eternal salvation. All truth and wisdom lie in the creative power of an Almighty God. God’s power is absolute and His kingdom is as formidable and secure as He has proclaimed it to be. Do we question God? If God does not know the answer, who does? The important reality of any question or circumstance is what happens when we [Read More…]

God controls it all. GLH

While in my solitude, I write, and in my spirit, I sing praise unto His precious name. My heart wants to serve Him; but, in my simple and unsophisticated ways, I am left feeling inadequate and unworthy. I know the kind of man I am, simple and undeserving, but I know that God can accomplish the impossible if I am willing to put my faith and trust in Him. So much of my writing is as though God has given me a bucket full of letters and words and I have been asked to arrange them as I feel He [Read More…]

UNPUBLISHED…

Life in Perspective A comprehensive look at life the way God has intended. This is a book I wrote several years ago, my second book, it was never edited and never published.  I have thought about it often, what’s next? With very limited funds and not really knowing a lot about what I’m doing, I have just let things slide. I told God that I would do whatever He wanted and I know, without His blessing nothing good will ever occur. I don’t believe all the time and effort I spent on it as wasted but I believe it is [Read More…]

Chapter Thirty-nine: Epilogue: Comments from the Author.

At some point in my writing, I considered it would be good policy to construct an outline to express my intentions and to guide me in my writing. Being a rebel, I often take a road seldom traveled; but, by doing so, my intent is to view things from a different perspective, not to be considered defiant. I do not wish to discard the accepted rules or methods of writing, but most of what I have written is by inspiration. I am not an author, nor do I possess the skills or attitude of a writer. All I have written [Read More…]
