Addiction by P037 reviews
Don't let it stop you. Don't let it control you. Don't let it breed evil. Idle hands are the Devil's workshop. God can help you become free. Just trust Him. ANYONE CAN USE THIS IF THEY WANT. JUST GIVE ME CREDIT. TY!

Song to Sing by DauntlessJay reviews
Hey guys. I wrote this song a while back for a fanfiction I wrote on but I felt like I should have expanded on the song. This is the result. It is about how someone feels after they have just discovered where they belong after being alone. Thanks for reading.

Southern Autumn reviews
my thoughts today as I sat in front of the woods and pond outside my home. I don't know why God would bless me, but He has, and just allowing me to enjoy His creation is just one of those many blessings. To me, this is romance at its best...time alone with the Creator of the universe.

Renew Me
Sorry for all caps, I'll change it soon I hope XP. I wrote this one night after, as many other times, I have been so sick of my tendency towards temptations and sin. It isn't whether a man does a thing right always that makes him a great man, but what he does after he falls. Every Christian, if honest with himself, will admit he is not perfected yet - but one day...

When the Storms of Sorrow Rage reviews
I was battling depression and struggling when I came to the realization that I needed to rehearse Gospel truths and tell myself what the Bible says about God. Knowing God rightly and being immersed in Christ has been the only thing that really helps me. I pray that anyone else battling depression would find comfort in the God of all comfort, in Christ alone.

When I Needed A Reminder reviews
And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another. Romans 15:14 We all need each other, as members of the body of Christ, we need to encourage and admonish one another, pressing forward toward the mark. We don't always agree with people, but a spirit of humility to listen is crucial.

Chasing Lies
Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. - 1 Timothy 4:12 The Bible teaches us to love one another as Christ has loved us; when we don't do things God's way, but demand our way in selfishness and pride, relationships get messy and ugly, and our sin even destroys those relationships

Hypocrites reviews
I find it ironic that it's Christians always being labeled hypocrites by the world, but it's only because we can't always rise above the sin nature in us. This poem is about the battle in every disciple.

Better to Be Right with You
I have always wanted to be married, but probably for the wrong reasons. This is just a bit of how I feel about it all now - I'd rather be right with God than be married and not. I know there's a lot of people out there who say I'm wrong about this, but this is my heart now and I just wish people would be understanding rather than force their opinions without any sincerity.

A Little Book of Truths
This was supposed to be for a children's story contest, but because it required at least half of the illustrations to be completed upon deadline with it, it didn't make it :( The goal was to write a children's story with Biblical truths or theme, and I wanted to do something with Creation ...but it turned out more like this XD . Hoping to add illustrations soon.

What is Love?
God's love is not the world's cheap and faux representation of love. This is a poem taking Biblical truths about what real love is, love that is founded in the one who made love and is love and is the perfect example of it - Jesus Christ the Lord of all. Though we are blinded by the sinfulness of man, as we have all been cursed by the first Adam's sin, God's love is purest.

By One reviews
For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. [Romans 5:19 KJV] Reflecting on the process of sanctification in the life of a new born believer in Christ; we are saved by grace alone, in faith alone, not by works that any may boast. God finishes the work He begins in those He has predestined to salvation.
