Chapter OnePOEMS OF INSPIRATION
"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." II Timothy 3:16-17
THE HOPE FROM HEAVEN
The hope that is from heaven is not your average hope. It's a hope that is extraordinary. It's very strong and made out of those eternal fibers that give you the strength to cope with some of life's most difficult problems and situations you will ever face. Hope that hangs around because it's very patient, kind, and yet eagerly waiting to serve you in the best way possible.
It's the hope that is made to last. It's the hope you can find deep in the valley or high upon a hill. It's the hope that really helps you out. It's the hope you can depend upon. It's the hope to trust because it's coming from Jesus. It's the hope to believe in.
The hope from heaven always shines with the brightest of lights, meeting your needs is its delight.
Thank God for the hope that is from heaven!
GOD LET IT BE SO IN OUR LIVES TODAY
Let faith arise and again I say, let faith arise in our hearts today.
Let great expectations from the kingdom of God be on our main agendas for the day.
Let the fruit of the Spirit of love arise big in our hearts today, because faith works by love.
Let us expect to hear from God like never before.
Let us expect and anticipate on seeing God move in great, powerful, and supernatural ways, as well as acts, all over the earth today (see Psalm 103:7), confirming the Bible scripture in the Book of Daniel 11:32, "... but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits."
Let signs and wonders from heaven on earth be forever on the increase.
Let those God ordained revivals happen again and again.
Let creativity and recreativity from the heart of God be expressed in great measures.
Let greater anointings be in our praying, singing, preaching, teaching, and prophesying.
Let clarity of visions and dreams from God spring forth in the believer's heart.
Let us be faithful in our callings.
Let us be challenged in our faith by trials and tribulations so that our character and lifestyle will produce and manifest to more mature levels in Christ.
Let knowledge, understanding, wisdom, and the application of the subject of endurance keep us focused, on doing the will of God, when we need it the most.
Let us practice keeping the 10 commandments and the beatitudes.
Let us pursue the peace of God.
Let us learn to pay the price of greatness in God.
Let us value and appreciate the quality of life that God has to offer, then He can trust us and bless us to be responsible and accountable for the quantities He affords us to have.
Let us hunger and thirst after righteousness and pursue holiness, without which no man shall see God (See Matthew 5:6, Hebrews 12:14).
Let us act as a team and body of believers that have been truly redeemed and in due season, God will promote us to be Kings and Queens.
God, Let it be so in our lives today.
To God be the glory!
THE POEM OF THE DAY—PART I
The poem of the day helps you get through the problems, struggles, and challenges of the day. It's like hope that gives you strength to cope with whatever might come your way.
The poem of the day helps you appreciate the goodness and grace of God for the day.
The poem of the day reminds you of the balance in life you need to portray like having a little time for fun and play along with the serious and professional side of life. Watch out for too much stress because it can cause you and others a whole lot of unwanted mess. When you really stop and think, over all, you know your day has been blessed.
The poem of the day is special, simple, and plain because it's exactly what God has ordained.
Poem of the day, you've made my day. Even though life has its share of problems, after reading and hearing you recited out loud both publicly and privately, I know that somehow, someway, no matter what obstacles I face today, a miracle from God has been breeding, brewing, contemplating, and stirring itself up just waiting for the right moment of the day to manifest itself in full form and fruition.
The poem of the day is God's miracle in the form of words prescribed just for you today.
Thank God for the poem of the day!
THE POEM OF THE DAY—PART II
The poem of the day is like the suns rays, beaming down on a freshly watered lawn, beaming down on a freshly watered garden, beaming down on a freshly watered bed of roses, beaming down on those freshly watered plants. It's that special poem that brings you joy unspeakable and full of glory (see I Peter 1:8 KJV).
The poem of the day is that answer to someone's need or perhaps the answer to a long unsolved mystery.
The poem of the day will include a choice set of words designed, created, and recreated, tailor-made to minister and serve someone in need.
It's the poem that will help you win justly and fairly against your opponents.
It's that special poem that can be read in the privacy of your home or recited out loud in a public place, scheduled for that day.
Maybe there is a current existing problem in your life that has caused your heart to be burdened down, stressed out, creating so much worry and doubt. It's the poem full of words that have the power to heal, deliver you, and make you run, dance, jump, and shout.
It's just simply that, the poem of the day. This is all I have to say.
EARLY MORNING HOURS
In the early morning hours, when everyone is still asleep, I sometimes get that fresh inspiration, a new thought, a new idea.
Early morning hours are the perfect time to write that new creative poem.
Early morning hours, you bring to earth those words that express God's beauty, grace, and power.
Early morning hours, you're my friend, you provide me with those quiet and peaceful moments. You provide me with the quality of quiet time that I can concentrate and give that poem the structure and the care it needs.
Early morning hours, I just love to take advantage of you. You give me that early start of writing something new, something fresh. I often imagine God giving me portions of His best.
Early morning hours, you're a blessing each time you come.
Early morning hours, you're that special blend of time that brings the earth that God given creative dream, vision, poem, song, or dramatical skit.
Early morning hours, you're that blessing from the skies above, giving us words that soar like a dove.
Early morning hours, I can count on you to bring me that poem that's full of God's goodness, grace, mercy, and anointing.
Early morning hours, you bring to earth so many God given tokens, awards, rewards, specialties, creative and recreative ideas, thoughts, and messages.
Early morning hours, you are the time; you are the season, given to us by God Almighty. We need to make sure we are using you for God's purpose and glory while we're here on earth. After all, the whole idea and concept of time came from Him. "To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven" (Ecclesiastes 3:1).
Thank you Father God for Early morning hours!

It's a matter of choice, if you are to believe, receive, and achieve His best or not.
To God be the glory!
THE HEARTBEAT OF MY HEAVENLY FATHER
My Father's heart beats perfectly and accurately all the time; it beats with a heavenly rhythm. There are no medical instruments of the past, present, or inventions of future, advanced technology that will ever be able to monitor its divine function.
It functions with an accurate account of prophetic events. It has grace beyond measure, irreplaceable compassion, beauty beyond description, beauty you could never imagine, beauty you cannot put into words.
His heart is so sensitive; it's touched with the feelings of our infirmities (see Hebrews 4:15 KJV). Now I can understand why the Psalmist David was known as a man after God's own heart because his heart and his flesh always cried out for the living God (see Psalm 84:2).
My desire is that my heart will beat like His too.
THE LIVING LIGHT OF GOD
Living Light of God, you expose the hidden things that are in
You overshadow darkness with your brightness and glory.
You brighten up my day.
You're like the sun's rays.
You've opened up the door to show me clear pathways to God's
Living Light of God, you're so strong and bright, your enemies
of darkness don't stand a chance against you when they make
attempts to fight.
Living Light of God, I appreciate you.
The dove is a beautiful creature that God created.
When I think of a dove, it reminds me of God's perfect love. I can
imagine seeing one soaring very high in the sky.
It soars with grace.
It soars with freedom.
It soars with peace.
It soars gently, yet with strength.
It soars like it doesn't have a care in the world.
It's a creature to be admired.
It reminds me of the scriptures in Colossians 3:1-2: "If then you
were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where
Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things
above, not on things on the earth."
THE GOODNESS OF THE LORD
The goodness of the Lord has satisfied my soul.
His goodness has made me whole.
Oh, I can tell, I really can tell, because He makes my health
Praise God forevermore.
Truly He is the ultimate supplier of all my needs.
He makes my life totally complete because in Him we live, move,
and have our being (see Acts 17:28).
In Christ we live forever.
In Christ we grow stronger and stronger.
In Christ the glory of God always grows brighter and brighter.
In Christ life couldn't be nicer.
In Christ we prosper.
In Christ we are world overcomers.
In Christ we grow wiser.
In Christ we are wise soul winners.
In Christ we are sober.
In Christ there is wisdom about eating healthy and wholesome
In Christ we are thoroughly trained soldiers.
In Christ we are winners.
In Christ we are more than conquerors (see Romans 8:37).

Use me until your time for my life on earth is over, according to your perfect will, purpose, and destiny.
GOD IS PLEASED WITH THE MAN THAT GENUINELY CRIES
He cries because he is sensitive to other people's hurt and pain. He cries because he's human. He cries because he is a man of good godly character; this does not make him weak, but strong. His emotions are different than that of a woman's because it's just simply the way God made him.
He cries because he is being broken by God to be used by Him in a more effective and powerful way. The Bible says a broken and a contrite heart He will not despise (see Psalm 51:17). Some men cry in vain. Some cry because of their God ordained purpose.
He cries because of the physical, sexual, and verbal abuse he suffered from when he was a child. He cries, he cries, he cries alone in the dark hours of the night. Sometimes he cries when there is no one else around. Real men cry because even Jesus cried. During His crucifixion in Matthew 27:46—"And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?" that is, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?" And in Matthew 27:50—"And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit."
Some men cry because they are genuinely sorrowful for their sins. II Corinthians 7:10-11 says, "For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death. For observe this very thing, that you sorrowed in a godly manner: What diligence it produced in you, what clearing of yourselves, what indignation, what fear, what vehement desire, what zeal, what vindication! In all things you
