The Wonderful Sighs of Life

I used to love to go to Mawmaw and Pawey’s house in Smackover Arkansas.They were my mom’s parents; they got ‘pinned’ with those names early on because as toddlers, my siblings and I had trouble pronouncing ‘Mamaw’ and ‘Papaw.’

     Smackover sounds like a hillbilly town, but it was far from it.It was a quaint, nice-sized country town that they lived in, off of the highway.

     We lived twenty-five miles away from Mawmaw and Pawey in a town called Camden Arkansas. This allowed us to be able to visit every Saturday, as well as every Thanksgiving and Christmas during my growing up years. Their house was an older home with three bedrooms, a living room, den, and a double carport; my cousins and I used to play under that carport on real live cast-iron cars that rode around like bicycles.  

     I especially loved to go to Smackover in the spring time; it was like stepping into another world.When I would get out of the car, I would immediately smell the giant Magnolia tree’s lemon-scented blo…

Faithwriters Writing Competition Stories

Hey dear readers,

I have been in the progress of transferring my writings from my old blog to this new one. It is really unbelievable that I have been writing consecutively since 2012. Folks that was 4 years ago. I want you to know that if you desire to write then God can fulfill that passion of your heart.  A big majority of the blog post here at Sacred Grace, are rewrites and re-edits from my old blog postings.

For a good year I was in the writing competitions at Faithwriters. I hope to get back to that someday, but for the next week I will be posting some of my old entries to this blog. I hope to close down that blog someday. I have already shared two of the stories in this blog. You may get up to two stories a day, until I get them posted. I pray this will not be a inconvenience to you. Just bear with me, for about a week.


Stand Up and Fight

It is so easy to get in the flesh, living out our fleshly nature.  But that is not the way for a true born again spirit-filled Christian to live...By the Spirit of God inside of us, we put to death the deeds of the is that simple.  We cannot fight the fleshly desires by staying in it but by allowing the Spirit of God that resides within us to overcome by the blood of the spotless lamb. We are the temples of the Holy Spirit.  We should not be full of carnality.           
     We have to push through the crud by the Spirit of God. We have a real live threat and that is Satan and his forces of darkness. If you doubt the spirit-realm and it's reality you will always fight a losing battle, You have to identify who your real enemy is, and that is not a human being.  You also have to recognize your victor and that is Jesus Christ. He is the Lion of Judah that resides in our hearts that gives us bold victories!  I pray He can reveal these truths to you.
     I wish I had known t…

Intimate Friendship

Have you ever met a person that has many friends?   There is no stranger in their eyes. He  is a true friend of friends of friends, and is there for them through thick and thin.  He is the "give you the shirt off their back" kind of friend.
A true bond or spiritual kinship does not just leave you high and dry or drift away in the night.  They are steadfast to stay the duration. Personally, I do not believe in seasonal friendships. That is a sure sign of a weak friendship. I am talking about the type of friendship that distance doesn't hamper or hinder the bond that you share in Jesus.
Recently, I was thinking about intimate friendships, and the Holy Spirit reminded me of Jesus and His twelve disciples. What a intimate relationship they must have had with the master of the universe who commanded the storms to cease.  He truly is our best friend and as close to us as He was with His disciples, but as a person with flesh and blood as myself, who has been a introvert for so ma…

Silent Prophets, "Come Forth!!"

     There have been so many times over the years that I have held back in giving a prophetic word to the body of Christ, thinking I was not good enough to give a word to the church...

     I ask God to forgive me right now for not standing up and giving that Word, even If I have to give it from where I am standing... 

    I have held back so many words that should have been spoken and have been disobedient in giving words to the church.....God does not honor or bless disobedience. He blesses His messengers with hope and courage and boldness to be ready to speak His Mighty Word!!  He desires us to follow hard after Him...declaring the Father's very own words!!!

     After a while of being hesitant the enemy comes to you telling you you have blown it and messed up so much chances that God will never use you again. That is wrong and a lie.

     God wants you to rise back up on a even greater passion to give the words of God to the body of Christ, so many need to hear what you have to sa…
