I have a King!

I have a King who laid down His royalty, His divinity, and became a gift from God to mankind - to set us free from a life of sin and shame - as we call on His wonderful name - I have a King who sits high and looks down on the earth - A king who tells me what I am worth - He gave his life for  all - He came to set the captives free - no chains are holding me - I  have a King who carries me when I can’t walk - I have a King who dries my tears - and soothes and comforts me removing my fears - I have a King who lives in my heart and causes me to sing - of His great mercy and love -in Him I have everything - I have a  King who will take us to heaven above - to show  the riches of His glory - I have a King - whose radiance shines from His throne of Grace - empowering us to run, run with endurance and perseverance  life’s  journey, life’s race - all because

He is our King!

I have a King who is above all other kings - in Him nothing is impossible - I have a King who heals the sick and raises the dead - He sends His word  and it is done - I have a King who created heaven and earth - and the vast universe - but still lives in my heart - living inside to impart - by His Spirit - wisdom, glory and peace -I have a King who walks alongside calling me His own - In His glorious light I am shown - the way of holiness and righteousness -He takes me to the mercy seat - purchased by the blood of Jesus - to walk the narrow way -  He spreads  joy unspeakable and full of glory - He is forever here to stay - reigning in great power and dominion -leading and guiding by His still small voice - all who know

We have a king!

About the Poet
I was born in Lexington County, SC. I lived in Jacksonville, Florida for many years.I recently moved back home to my home town, Columbia, SC. I have one daughter, Kimberly. I now have two brothers. One went to be with the Lord in January, 2010. My Mom went to be with the Lord, Memorial Day May 28, 2012. Among the things I am grateful for and remembering about her is my salvation. She was a strong passionate woman of God all of her life and a beautiful loving Mother. I was saved and baptized in the ocean in Rota, Spain. What an experience that was! Holy Spirit chased me and drew me to Himself, while I was alone in another country. I surrendered to the Lord, and His peace flooded my soul. It was so beautiful. I am so happy he saved me and redeemed me. I am so happy to share these poems from His heart and mine. Poetry is a release and has inspired and encouraged me and many who have read my poetry. I was blessed to write for a number of years on Crossway Publications and had over 300 poems that I wrote on the site. God has increased my gift with more beautiful poetry. In 2005 my poetic writings seemed to catch the fire of God and have a deeper meaning. I thank God for this chance to share my poetry with all. God Bless...
