I have often been asked where the words come from that I write. I have been asked how I write. My answer is that sometimes I write from an intellectual standpoint doing hours of research to familiarize myself with the subject of my writing. But, the best and most soulful writing is what pours from my heart. They are the words that go from my heart to God's ear and, as the old folks would say, go from "God's lips to my ears." The vast majority of poems in this collection are poems that came from the challenges, repentance, and victory I have experienced through Christ. They are our communication with each other. I hope these words encourage and uplift you. I pray that they let you know that you are not alone in your challenges. Be encouraged and know that God has wonderful thoughts for you. How do I know? Because God Said So.
