CHAPTER 1

    Ready!

    I'm ready to present the gifts that I hold
    Ready to tell the world my story to be told
    I've seen a great deal and I'm ready to shine
    Get out and get on with my daily grind
    I know out there is a position for me
    GOD is gonna place me where He wants me to be
    I needed time away to get my spirit right
    And to conquer self-confidence and keep my mind tight
    I have lived many struggles that could have took me out
    But I am here now, ready to launch, scream and shout
    If they don't understand me, really, it's cool
    But after all this work, you'll recognize I'm not a fool
    I dug deep in my soul and shared from my abyss
    Hold on, take control, you don't want to miss this
    Living in my past is something I cannot do
    All I want is to bring my truth to you
    I pray you all enjoy the truth brought from my heart
    I had to relinquish the past for this brand new start
    It's a new season, it's a new day
    Bringing this raw, real truth straight your way
    Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride
    Thank you so very much for sharing with me your time


    Gots To Do It!

    Got to do it
    Need to do it
    Have to do it
    Want to do it
    Going to do it
    Will do it
    Must do it
    You should do it
    But whatever you do
    DON'T QUIT IT!


    Illumination

    He gave me this gift to illuminate the world
    He gave this gift to me, a Ramah Word, to a home-girl
    With so much pain and anguish going on everyday
    He sent me to tell the world there is a better way
    Devoting your life to Christ will not lead to decay
    For it is written ... HE is the Truth, the Life and the Way
    The words filtered through me are for the world to share
    To tell you there is a Savior so you don't have to be in despair
    I could go on and on and on ... about His mighty works
    This message is being shared to keep someone's mind from going berserk
    Listen to me, understand, that the fat meat is greasy
    For I can tell you of a way that is safe, yet not always easy
    The enemy tricked me and stole a great deal
    But GOD gave it all back and I now walk with a brand new zeal
    My life is transformed, clearer and plain
    No longer am I suffocated by that dark ugly strain
    I am here to testify and tell you that this is real
    Just ask Judas what happened to him after his last meal
    We are all GOD's creation, equal in frame
    Bow down on your knees and praise His holy name
    If He did it for me, He will do it for you
    He is using me as a vessel to bring this truth to you
    In Jesus' name, Amen


    Glory Be~

    Glory be to God
    I give it All to you
    Glory be to God
    I humbly thank you
    For your Love is Amazing
    Shocking and true
    I can never live without you, Lord
    Or else my life would be dreary and blue
    The transformation you have made in me
    Is real and raw
    Ready for the world to see
    For your Word is law
    When the world sees me
    It shall see you too
    I won't let you down, Lord
    That is my humble Promise to you
    I LOVE YOU LORD, THANK YOU!


    Standing

    On the mountain top
    Looking towards GOD
    Standing confident
    Due to His staff and His rod
    Waiting patiently
    Revelation of excellence
    Transcending on a new path
    Expecting to see the difference
    Hopes and dreams all have been heard
    To turn back just an inch
    Would be completely absurd
    Change of scenery
    Change of venue
    Mental health restoration
    Faith food on the menu
    A new exploration
    Understanding the inheritance
    Letting go of past ills
    To marvel in His excellence
    When they see me
    They shall see You too
    For with your guidance so clear, Lord
    Your sheep will know exactly what to do
    Prayer, praise and worship
    The simple keys of three
    Humble yourselves before Him
    For He is gently descending ...
    Bow down on your knees
    GET READY!


    For Now I See

    I can see a brighter day, Lord
    Coming forward and intended for me
    I pray and ask you to graciously hear my request
    Please Lord listen to my plea
    To remove the decay
    Which once was rotting in my body
    We are all apart of God's great strong army
    If one part of me suffers
    Other members meet and agree
    Your promises are plentiful, gracious and raw
    Fellowship begins within oneself
    Ambitious and ready to rule as Your law
    Your Holy word inspires deep within my soul
    Your loving paradise is my ultimate and desired goal
    Speak to me Lord, show me what is in my heart
    My life is dedicated to You Sweet Jesus
    I humbly thank you for my new start
    My life was full of pain, uncertainty and madness
    Yet it took being tossed in the stormy rain
    For me to understand and comprehend your loving kindness
    You brought me through without a blemish or stain
    So magical and real for nothing I have done was in vain
    So I had to endure the strain
    So that I could stand and explain
    The manifestation of my growth
    In your precious and Holy name
    So be it~


    New Season

    It's a new season
    It's a new day
    A bright new horizon is forming
    Moving forward
    Customized in your own way
    The comet
    The clouds
    The birds of the air
    With Jesus on our side
    There is never a reason to despair
    Drive and ambition
    Dreams coming true
    The Holy Spirit is in your body
    Softly, gently running through and through
    Time to relax
    Time to sigh
    Time to kick back
    Time to wonder and ponder ... why?
    Nothing is by chance
    Everything happens for a reason
    Yea ... Just like I said
    Thank You, Lord, for it's a new season ...


    Ask, Seek, Knock

    If you turn around too long your life can come to a halt
    You will be straight on stuck like a pillar of salt
    The past is the past
    Whatever happened there will not last
    Don't let it shape your mind
    And steal or distort the images of future time
    All things that happen are necessary and for a reason
    But GOD gives us strength to face a brand new season
    Going against your soul is destructive like treason
    Upset and all confused and panicked like a heathen
    These are a few of his tricks in store to behold
    Remember he will do anything to rob and steal your soul
    Lies and deceit are in his bag of tricks
    But when you know who you are, he must flee, and quick!
    Don't be afraid and do not fret
    There is nothing too big that GOD has not met
    There is nothing impossible for GOD to do
    Ask, seek, knock ... HE's at the door just waiting for you


    Sweet King

    Sweet King Jesus
    You have brought me so far
    My love and life with you
    Has made me feel like a bright twinkling star
    A life so precious and so dear
    My Sweet King Jesus how I need you near


    Grateful

    Gratefulness is flowing from my Heart
    With God by my side
    I shall never fall apart
    His promises are real
    Time tested and true
    Surrender your hearts to Him
    So he can be a work of art within you


    Sick

    Sick to my stomach
    Want to die
    Sick to my stomach
    Hoping to understand why
    Do I ask?
    Is it disrespect?
    Will He even answer me?
    Or is it just not time yet?
    Where is His voice?
    Where did it go?
    Is He running from me?
    Please don't leave me alone
    The road is rough
    And my companions are few
    All the things I dreaded
    May be coming near to me too
    Disappointment, reality and shattered dreams
    Perhaps I was delusional
    Just making fluff in between
    Hoping to be on the front line
    Back to the end I go
    What He has in store for me
    Some day I hope to know
    My palms itch with anticipation for the mean green
    Did He throw me into the ocean to watch and hear me scream?
    This world is full of crap
    Ugly and strange
    Please don't forsake me now
    I need you to remember my name
    Help me!


    Hoy Trust

    I trust in
    Lean on and rely upon You
    My Faith is so strong Lord
    I know exactly what to do
    I give it All to you
    For you are in command
    I ask for my miracle now Lord
    For only You can understand
    I open my heart
    And surrender to you
    I Love you so much Lord
    I'm doing All I am supposed to do
    When the world sees me
    I pray they see you too
    The enemy comes strong to break me
    He will attack anyone
    To ruin my relationship with you
    For my Faith is strong
    As I am prepared to fight
    Lord, with you on my side
    I am confident that everything
    Is already Alright!
    I embrace my Love for you
    With All that I AM
    Open his heart Lord
    And help him to truly understand
    You are Almighty
    Nothing is impossible for you
    I surrender my marriage Lord
    Show up! Show out!
    Do that magical thing
    Only you can do


    Just A Thought

    I know it's been a while
    It seems you've pulled away
    So much on my mind
    So much I want to say
    When you're given a dear friend
    You must believe and share
    No matter how special
    No matter how rare
    I awoke from my sleep
    At three AM
    The enemy pulled an attack
    Yep, it was him again
    Told me I was gonna have a heart attack
    The shingles and even death threats
    I rebuked him in the name of Jesus
    For my life has only just begun yet
    I arose strong mind ready to fight
    Preparation for this test today
    With an iron clad belief
    Everything is already alright
    So I began to write
    For it is what I do
    The following words and phrases
    Came to my mind
    And the spirit is burning for me to share them with all of you:
    Confirmation
    Affirmation
    Appreciation
    Stand on His Word
    Preach to ALL Know
    Never give up!
    Believe
    Prophesy
    The Gospel
    Jesus Christ
    The Father
    The Son
    The Holy Ghost
    The Truth
    The Life
    The Way
    Inspiration
    Adoration
    Trust
    Love
    Fearless
    Strong
    Strength
    Power
    Glory
    Obedient
    Evangelist
    Angel
    Miracle
    LORD!


    Fiendships

    Friendships come in many ways
    Different styles on different days
    Ice breakers, chillers, popcorn and twizzlers
    Understanding new meaning
    Excitement, suspense and thrillers
    A gentlemen, A gentlemen
    Wow ... Oh Wow!
    Dreams do come true
    Even now
    Things that I see
    Only God knows my heart
    I will stand and wait
    Don't want my emotions to fall apart
    I hope I know what I see
    I hope it is for true, for me
    For with all that old baggage
    I am uncertain what to do
    God is in control at every season
    Whatever is meant
    God will be the reason
    Is it another test?
    A test of my faith?
    I'm not really sure
    Yet excited about the wait
    God knows my heart
    He knows it well
    For when I look into His eyes
    I know he can tell


    Law Of Attraion

    The law of attraction
    Visualize the game
    Understand your heart and passion
    For your prosperity you shall aim
    Success is within
    Time tested and true
    Living a life of Victory
    Is no longer a stranger to you
    Words are mere symbols
    What does it all mean?
    When preparing to become a champion
    Living aloud the desires of your wildest dreams
    Human beings and symbols
    The world is surround
    Don't allow them to pump negative in your head
    And get your spirit and soul down
    We have got but one chance at this life
    So push the pedal to the ground
    For success and happiness is victory you shall be abound
    Therefore, never give up on your hopes and your dreams
    Remember what His Words says ...
    Ask and you shall receive
    You have not because you ask not
    That remains to be seen
    Stand firm on His word
    Be patient and just believe


    Peace

    I feel peace in my spirit
    Peace in my soul
    Peace in my heart
    Peace that cannot be sold
    Prayer, praise and worship
    Day and night
    I did not miss the mark
    I made it through just right
    I know my request
    I know it was heard
    Wait for the manifest
    Just as I was told
    So many gifts
    So many prayers answered
    The devil is a LIAR!
    My prophecy states there is no cancer
    I walk by faith
    Not by sight
    Thanks to this trial
    I know I did it right
    Praise and worship
    Scream and shout
    He has lost again
    For Jesus won the bout
    Victory is ours
    From beginning to end
    Hold on to that outcome
    When the trials begin
    Always know there's a place for you to go
    And His name is Jesus
    For it is the sweetest name I know!


    Humility

    Patience and humility go hand in hand
    Patience and humility, kick back relax and just stand
    Stand on His word, His promises and virtues
    Allowing my life to flourish like the ocean deep and blue
    Emotions can run high, thick, murky and deep
    For Your promises are the truth, which I know you will keep
    Impeccability with your Word if only life could be the same
    I Thank GOD for you Jesus and Your precious Holy name
    Perhaps the path may seem bleak, desolate and dark
    For if we place our Faith in You, we shall be confident to remain on the
    mark
    We must move by faith and not by sight
    Lord Your word is alive, I must remind myself of that right
    Proverbs, Psalms, Hebrews and Corinthians
    Matthew, Mark and the Book of Thessalonians
    With so much more Lord, I have only named just a mere few
    Thank you for prophesy, Your word is the only thing that brings me
    through
    I search deep within my soul to find solace and peace
    As your Word is my comforter, which keeps me humble and meek


    The Circle

    Maker of a circle
    Maker of the twin
    Measurement of a circumference
    A sphere where the rains come in
    Steady gentle flows
    Given just enough
    A place for you to go
    When the outer world seems rough
    The skies open wide
    The clouds begin to form
    A new way of living
    Not quite the previous norm
    A message so grand
    Eloquent and exact
    There is only one person who can deliver like that
    Tear down the house
    Is precisely what He did
    Twirling in the circle
    Getting everybody in
    Round and round and round it goes
    When to make it stop only He knows
    Where all that energy resides is not unknown
    Standing out doing that thing
    Greatness is surely to be shown


    Luther Ray

    Luther Ray
    Oh I hated when you went away
    So early in life
    Just didn't seem right
    The love we shared
    Has never been compared
    Your love taught me how to feel deep and intently
    I wish more people shared your special mentality
    For so many years I didn't understand
    With a Daddy like you, my life was just grand
    Heart disease is what took you from me
    For you are living with GOD now is what I tried to see
    Your beautiful eyes and that cleft in your chin
    I finally did it Daddy, now were going to win!
    Oh my GOD how I wish you were still here
    To sit down and talk to you in your favorite chair
    I look forward to seeing you on the other side
    I love you Luther Ray, until the end of all time
