Poem - Good Christian

You tell me you're a good Christian,
That's what you have confessed.
You act like you know everything,
Like you're divinely blessed.

You look down on those around you,
With judgment in your eyes.
You cannot be one of the flock,
You want the shepherd's prize.

You claim to know the mind of God,
He whispers in your ear.
You say He shares His will with you,
And you share what you hear.

You act like you're above it all,
Like you are free of sin.
And if we do not follow YOU,
Our souls will be condemned.

But if rebuke should come your way,
With scripture on its side,
You'll just attack my character
With venom born of pride.

You claim to be a good Christian,
But I will disagree.
The one who must exalt himself,
Will never truly see.

For self is all your eyes behold,
To God's will, you are blind.
And if the flock should follow you
A pit is all they'll find.

For he who leads, but can't be led,
Is inane and hollow.
While your own pride and vanity
Are the gods you follow.

The one who lies in our Lord's name
Exalts himself to men.
He blasphemes the Holy Spirit,
And can't be freed from sin.

You claim to be a good Christian,
Insisting this is true.
Yet deep within Hell's pit, you'll find
Good Christians, just like you.

The Servant Song - My thoughts

During this weekend, I have found that I have be touched by God. Usually I hear his voice telling me something during mass. The thing was I usually sit with my husband, but this weekend he was doing CRHP. He was on the giving side. He is in team 14. He gave his witness and During holy hour, I felt God's spirit enter me and touch me like nothing I'd ever felt before. The songs touched my hear and told me what my vocation is and not to let anyone tell me otherwise.

The Song before this post is about being a servant to God. I'd done CRHP myself. I was on team 12. This lenten journey my girls, my sisters in Christ have been learning about ourselves and what it means to study and be a disciple of God. This Sunday afternoon we studied the bible and talked about being a servant woman. The study touched my heart and I wanted to share with the world how God can hear our prayers. He is there and guiding us to fullfill his promise to all mankind. If you ask for his Holy Spirit to enter our mind, body and Soul. Just let him into you, let Jesus be your Savior.

Living without Jesus or God, you will always find something missing in your life. I know this since a very young age. When I was in boarding school, we were sent to church every Sunday. I would mess around and this church was boring and not for me. Then I lost the only relative that loved me. She died and I was aleft alone with a hole in my heart and felt something was missing. I went through life knowing that special something wasn't going to come to me. I had to go find it myself.

I tried several churches and faiths. Baptist, Mormon, Jehovah Witness, Jewish faith and a a few more. I know that there are people out there that might be one of the gfaiths I have listed. I'm not knocking your faith, it just wasnt the right faith for me. I became a Catholic. I foudn God touching my heart, mind and soul each day. I went through RCIA and became a devote Catholic.

Since Easter 2007, were I was comfirmed to be a Catholic. I believe it was the right church for me. I made a ton of friends. When I lived in England, I hhad no true friends that would be there for me no matter what. I have friends now, a new family at St Marks and my husband's family also. I have a connection to God and he is leading me do his work. I believe he gave me my gift to write and I'm using this gift to show the youth of today to lead tyhem back to Him and hopefully show them that God exists and loves them...

The Servant Song - The Maranatha Singers

Brother, let me be your servant
Let me be like Christ to you
Pray that I might have the grace
To let you be my servant too

We are pilgrims on the journey
We are brothers on the road
We are here to help each other
Walk the mile and bear the load

I will weep when you are weeping
When you laugh, I'll laugh with you
I will share your joy and sorrow
Till we've seen this journey through

When we sing to God in heaven
We shall find such harmony
Born of allwe've known together
Of Christ's love and agony

Brother, let me be your servant
Let me be like Christ to you
Pray that I might have the grace
To let you be my servant too
