A Beautiful Poem...

  I found this Poem online and I liked it...

A Prayer For purity

O Thou, to whose all-searching sight
The darkness shineth as the light,
Search, prove my heart; it pants for Thee;
O burst these bonds, and set it free!

Wash out its stains, refine its dross,
Nail my affections to the Cross;
Hallow each thought; let all within
Be clean, as thou, my Lord, art clean!
If in this darksome wild I stray,
Be Thou my Light, be Thou my Way;
No foes, no violence I fear,
No fraud, while Thou, my God art near.

When rising floods my soul o'erflow,
When sinks my heart in waves of woe,
Jesus, Thy timely aid impart,
And raise my head, and cheer my heart.

Savior, where'er Thy steps I see,
Dauntless, untired, I follow Thee;
O let They hand support me still,
And lead me to Thy holy hill!

If rough and thorny be the way,
My strength proportion to my day;
Till toil, and grief, and pain shall cease,
Were all is calm, and joy, and peace.

"The Unmarried Woman Careth for the Things of the Lord"

I Corinthians 7:32

But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord:

1 Corinthians 7:34
There is difference [also] between a wife and a unmarried woman. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please [her] husband.
There are some things that have been in my heart lately... (I guess thinking bout having a birthday coming up and all) has really made me think bout my age and my life until now...
This 2 scriptures, well the second one mostly has really been in my mind lately.... I think bout being single at my age.... let me tell you most of the time it does not matter at all! I am happy being single!
There is a mentality in Pentecost that there might be something wrong with you if you are not married in your early or mid 20s... Well I am well past my early 20s and here I am... SINGLE! yes single and happy! I won't deny that I have my days of sadness what single girl doesn't? and if any single girls out there say they don't get lonely... well YOUR lying!  lol
I had more of a hard time convincing my family than anyone else... I come from a family of 5 girls and 1 boy! ( I know that's a whole lot of kids... but I am Mexican!  lol) I am the youngest of them all.... and all my sisters (except for 1) had kids before they were 20... I was 5 when my oldest niece was born so by the time I was old enough to have kids I was done with them!!!   lol DON'T get me wrong I love kids... I just don't want any of my own! lol
but going back to the scripture.... I loved it, when I first found this scripture I Corinthians 7:34
I was like " YES! here it is... lol My answer... lol
I see some of the ladies in my church... wifes & mothers and they have it rough! I feel bad for some of them.... they have time for hardly anything besides taking care of their husband, children AND  home...
BUT I want to choose the better part!  I don't want to be like Martha and be too busy for God! I want to be more like Mary and take a seat at the feet of JESUS!
There is so much I can invest in the Kingdom of God! AND please don't misunderstand me, He has a work for all of us... I know that God can use you if you are married, but ME being single, have more time to dedicate it to the service of my Lord!
I don't mean to offend anybody...  but marriage is not for all of us...I want to care for the things that belong to the Lord, I want to be pleasing unto Him, I want my prayers to be ..."of a sweet savour unto the LORD:"!!!  Lev 2:2
In conclusion...
I am in love with a wonderful God... AND I guess I can say that I have been bethroed to the one I love the most... more than life itself... I am part of the bride of Christ... and I am waiting anxiously for the day when the Groom returns for me, His bride!
BUT until then.... I have LOTS work to do... We have been promised a great revival....
As Bro. Rivers has asked us during this time hes been preaching for us... "DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THE PROMISES OF GOD ARE TRUE???"
The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 1:20
For all the promises of God in him [are] yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

AND it also says in Numbers 23:19
God [is] not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent: hath He said, and shall He not do [it]? or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?

Here we go again!

So here I am again lets see if I can keep up this time... lol
I am in love with a God that is good, that holds my life in His hands! A God that no matter what is always there for me... Let me tell you I have learn so much from Him in the last few months, and yet there is soooo much more to learn from Him! I guess really you never stop learning, His word is full of so much knowledge, it is just amazing! I am in a place in my life where all I can tell God is I want more, I am not satisfied anymore with the knowledge of past miracles and I am tired of hearing about the past experiences of the past generations of the people of God! I am ready for our miracles! It is time to take up the Cross... we need to claim our victory and then move on with the plan of God... So yes, I want more of Jesus... I want to see the miracles promised to our generation... I want to see the souls of our surrounding cities coming to God... I want to see the healing, the miracles, the new babes in Christ... I want to see the Chekinah glory of God.... I want to see the REVIVAL promised to Ontario come to pass... IT IS TIME... we need to make up our mind that we will allow God to use us for His glory, for His kingdom. It is Gods will that we see all this!
God wants to work with us and see us through, he wants to use us for His glory....
I mean what a privelage that the God of glory would take time to comune with us and let us feel His precense... allow us to work for Him!
I love God with all my heart and I know that He has great plans for His peple!!!!
In Jesus name let revival come to Ontario and our surrounding cities!
Thank You Jesus for a revelation of who You are and what your will is!!!
