Foot Prints

Author Unknown

 

One night a man had a dream.

He dreamed he was walking

along the beach with the Lord.

Across the sky flashed scenes

from his life, for each scene,

he noticed two sets of foot-

prints in the sand, one be-

longing to him, and the other

to the Lord. When the last scene

of his life flashed before

him, he looked back at the

 footprints in the sand. He

noticed that many times along

the path of his life there was

only one set of footprints. He

also noticed that it happened

at the very lowest and saddest

times in his life. this really

bothered him and he ques-

tioned the Lord about it.

"Lord, you said that once I

decided to follow you, you'd

walk with me all the way. but

I have noticed that during the

most troublesome times in my

life, there is only onset of

footprints. I don't understand

why when I needed you the

most you would leave me."

The Lord replied, "My son,

My precious child, I love you

and I would never leave you.

During your times of trial and

suffering, when you see only

one set of footprints, it was

then that I carried you."

 

The Eighth Letter

 

In the book of revelation there are seven letters addressed to the seven church of that time. The letters both praise and rebuke, both tell of consequence and reward. the following is a letter to the church of America it is what I believe Jesus would write to us today as a body of believers. If the text looks similar to the original seven letters it is , for two reasons one a similar pattern keeps the letter familiar to readers and it is always good to use the bible. Though this letter is not straight from the mouth of Jesus himself as were the seven it is what I believe he would write so I am writing it as if it were straight from his mouth so do not be alarmed I'm not trying to prophecy. Although the words I am about to write I truly believe to be the truth.

 

 

 

            To the angel of the church of America write,

"These things says He who holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and his feet like fine brass, who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars, The Amen, The faithful and true witness, the Beginning of the creation of God. These things says the son of God.

            'I know your works, but your hearts are far from me. you build large churches and beautiful buildings. You have good sermons and well planned services. You have all the right programs and hold Easter and Christmas pageants. The church gatherings are a big hit and you even plan out reaches to feed the poor and visit the out casts. You have all the knowledge but your hearts are far from me. You do not tolerate hypocrites even though that is what you are! You have let your light become polluted and have become poison to the world. You compromise your beliefs and change with the times, you are man pleasers and not God pleasers. You seek signs and miracles but you have forgotten about me. You have left your first love You have become lukewarm. You prophecy in my name but have forgotten my face, the words that you speak are from the depths of your own heart and not from my mouth. You have a name that you are alive but you are dead. So I tell you repent for I am coming soon for my blameless bride turn away from your sinful ways forsake your perverted meaningless religion and turn to me, seek me, look to my face, and return to the place where you once loved me. Drive out the evil from among you purify my house or else you will be judged for your rebellion you will be destroyed for your hypocrisy and I will call forth my remnant I will raise up a new people after my face to take my word to the world to pick up where you fell short repent and turn once again to me, or I will take your lampstand from it's place.

 

If God Was Like Us

 

The following is an excerpt from the poem footprints with my own little twist at the end. I imagined what God's response to the man would be after the man asked why there was only one set of footprints during the hardest times in his life, if God was like us. so read on and praise the Lord that God is not like us.

 

One night a man had a dream.

He dreamed he was walking

along the beach with the Lord.

Across the sky flashed scenes

from his life, for each scene,

he noticed two sets of foot-

prints in the sand, one be-

longing to him, and the other

to the Lord. When the last scene

of his life flashed before

him, he looked back at the

footprints in the sand. He

noticed that many times along

the path of his life there was

only one set of footprints. He

also noticed that it happened

at the very lowest and saddest

times in his life. this really

bothered him and he ques-

tioned the Lord about it.

"Lord, you said that once I

decided to follow you, you'd

walk with me all the way. but

I have noticed that during the

most troublesome times in my

life, there is only one set of

footprints. I don't understand

why when I needed you the

most you would leave me."

The Lord replied, "My son,

My precious child, I love you

and I want you to understand

that even though I may have

left you I always remembered

you were there and besides that

things were to tough for

me to stick around, but if you

do take notice son I always

returned when things got better

cause really son how can you expect

 me to be with you always.

 I mean it  doesn't benefit me none it's

always whine whine whine and

 ask ask ask can't you ever say

 thank you? So I decided to leave

 you for a short while off and on

 because this isn't a life style thing

 any way maybe a weekends and

 holidays thing but you can't really

think I am going to stay with you

all day every day. But son never

forget that I love you and I'll

see ya later cause me and Michael

are getting together to watch the

super bowl, so you think you can

handle your own  problems

for a while cause I'm run-

ning late so I gotta go bye."

 

 

Daddy

(this is a song I wrote a really long time ago and it seems I did not make good enough notes about it even for me to understand the exact orders of how I wanted it so I apoligize if it is not clear.

 

Chorus

 1. Is everything OK daddy

Will everything be all right?

Can you promise me safety?

Can you protect me tonight?

Daddy are you listening

Cause I need to know

Is everything O.K.

Will everything be all right?

 

2*I need your help tonight (help me with this fight)*

3*daddy help me, daddy hold me tight*

4*I need to know am I doing OK

Will everything be alright*

 

This world is so big and scary

Temptations all round

I want to please you but I fail

Always stumble to the ground

What did I do?

What can I do?

What do I do?

I need your help tonight

 

Chorus

 

I have tried many times

And fail more than succeed

I need your help Jesus

Come and comfort me

What did I do?

What can I do?

What do I do?

Daddy hold me tight

 

I got back on my horse

And I am running again

This race is not easy

But it will be worth it in the end

What did I do?

What do I do?

What can I do?

Am I doing all right?
