Despise Not the “Little Cloud,”
Like the hands of a man.
Because it is the womb,
The harbinger of a mighty rain.
Elijah’s servant saw such a cloud
But his master saw beyond it.
Despise not little beginning
Because it will trigger great blessing.
In everything give thanks.
Regardless of the challenge have faith.
Expect great things, attempt great things.
And God will surpass your expectations.
Your beginning may be small
But your end shall be great.
Your beginning may be a trickle
But your end shall be an avalanche.
Your beginning may be insignificant
But your end shall be ginormous.
“There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea!”1Ki18:44
Oaks of Righteousness Shall Stand
Oaks of righteousness
Shall stand in the fierce wind
Through His great faithfulness
Abounding grace they’ll find.
They’ll grow tall and strong
Like cedars of Lebanon.
At night they’ll have a song
to cheer those that mourn.
His word, their nourishment
His Spirit, their comfort
His love so permanent
Fiery darts come to nought.
They are the trees of the Lord
His treasured possession
They are watered by the Lord
In famine or recession.
They will never perish
But always flourish
Bringing forth fruit
In their season.
Isa61:3 That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.”
The Word of faith
Is medicine without
It can never lead to overdose.
It never kills but cures
including the sin-sickness.
8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach):Rom10:8
21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart;
22 For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh. Prov4:21-22
Watch What You Watch.
It plants a seed in you.
And this is good or bad;
And will germinate in you.
The seed will turn a tree 🎄
That tree will bear some fruits for you
To eat, digest, nourished or malnourished.
So choose and watch what’s good for you.
Watch what you choose to watch.
Choices carry consequences,
And these may be good or bad.
Decisions determine destiny
Some mad, some sad, others glad.
Just as you look in the mirror of life
And you’re changed from glory to glory
Strength to strength, faith to faith,
So when you look in the “movies of the world”
Via TV, Internet, videos, or books,
You’re changed for the better
Or for worse- from gory to gory-bad to worse
3 I will set nothing wicked before my eyes; I hate the work of those who fall away; It shall not cling to me. Ps101:3
Words Woo or Wound

Life and death are in the power of your words
Choose to speak the right words that will make, not mar
Choose words that will give life to that which is good, not life to evil.
When angry, be wise. Choose to be dumb.
Else poison will ooze out of your mouth and maim or kill
What was built over 10 years can be destroyed in 10 seconds.
He who has no control over his lips is like a city without walls.
Keep corruption and profanity out of your lips.
