Die to live - die to fleshly desires - walk by the Spirit - in truth - embrace the beauty of the heart - given to us by Jesus - die to live life more abundantly -in peace, love and joy - what a wonderful thing has come into our lives - as we die to live - not an easy thing to do - an ever progressing attainment - to perfection - a step to Jesus - die to live - in the good life - the choices we make - lead by His Holy Spirit - die to live for Christ leaving the sometimes popular decisions - to hear God’s answers to the questions  in our soul -the still small voice that leads to victory -  die to live walking the way of the cross - the way of righteousness - thank you God for our reigning intercessor, Jesus - who intercedes for us at the throne of grace and mercy - die to the old man who tries to influence our thoughts and actions  - bringing darkness - not light - let the sunshine in - the light of life -  as we

Die to live!

Die to live - that which I do not want to do - I do - for I live in a battle - I choose who wins - my conquering King has paved the way for me to go - Die to live as an overcomer - overcoming power and sweeping victory - in the face of all that would come against me - die to live - it is the only way to live without shame or guilt - die to live even in our weak moments - He strengthens the weak knees - picking me up -  putting me back on the path - forgiving and loving - as I humbly bow  - in submission, adoration and praise - as I

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...
