Free For All

Sadness consumes me more each day and night,

Seeing so many more wrongs and so fewer rights.

Pain & suffering of individuals increases every day,

With no hope of reprieve as they’ve lost their way.

Life is so cruel & evil feeling there’s no way to cope,

But why do so many not see that there truly is hope.

The god of this world tries to keep everyone blind,

By not allowing them to see the truth they need to find.

By God our Father’s love and with Jesus Christ’s sacrifice,

Can you find hope as His Son has already paid the full price.

Read God’s word and learn about Grace that is Heaven sent,

Free to all by confessing you have sinned and want to repent!!

Hate, Truly A Four Letter Word!!

By Larry Shawn Cagle

Hate is one emotion that blinds all those trying to see the truth. Hate keeps hearts and minds closed to new possibilities, changes by others and any individual’s personal appeal. Hate keeps one’s anger focused on the individual who we may truly love or care for, and it can keep one’s focus off of the action or deed that may have started or fueled the hate. It can stop someone from forgiving and another from showing regret or apologizing. Hate always seperates, never unifies and always increases any form of isolation. Hate only serves what is negative or wrong and consistently acts against anything good and positive. It is amazing how hate can manipulate, direct or control so many actions and lives of those individuals who are good and decent. It is easy to understand why hate is one of the sins that leads to the second death since it’s creator is Satan. Remember, HATE is truly a four-letter word.

Living and Life

I really don’t know what to do,
I wish I could just simply tell you,
I get more depressed every day,
I’m lost and I cannot find my way.

I wish you could fully understand,
I feel my final time is now at hand,
I wish God would take me today,
Sadly, I know that is not His way.

What is there truly left for me in life,
Except more suffering, pain & strife,
I pray to God daily for help and relief,
I wish I could have more faith or belief.

Please forgive me Lord when I am weak,
Help me find all the answers that I seek.
Please God hear all that I truly confess,
Forgive my sins and help me be blessed,

I promise to work harder each & every day,
To trust in You and follow Your Son’s way.
I know it’s only by the free gift of Your Grace,
That in Heaven I will always have a place!!

My Gift

To My Loving Wife Vicki:

I will never forget when you first stood next to me,
I knew that together in life we were truly meant to be.
Never before had I felt a soul so innocent and pure,
God had designed us to be as one my heart was sure.
Your beauty was magnificent both inside and out,
You were truly a gift from God and I had no doubt.
Who was I to finally find my one and only true love,
A sorry soul truly blessed by a gift from God above.
Even though I had closed my heart and mind to all,
God planned when first together for you I would fall.
Even though the years together have seen good & bad,
My life with you is the greastest gift I have ever had.
Please remember that my love for you will never end,
Together forever as my soulmate and my best friend!!

All My Love As Always,
Shawn

God’s Way

We are given a chance to live,
Always God’s grace gives,
Those who accept the gift,
Adding souls He lifts,
Honor & Glory from above,
True perfect love,
With Him you are free,
Hope we all see,
Praise, Honor and Glory to Him,
Saved from all sin,
Nothing left except His word,
His truth is heard,
Sadly some will not live,
Still He gives,
Eternal Joy for all to see,
Forever with Thee!!

Lost In Life

Down the road of life I travel each day,
Lost and confused not knowing my way.
Walking alone on this path & without care,
Dealing daily with people trying to be fair.
Burdens I carry weigh heavy on my mind,
A normal part of my life with more to find.

Each day goes by with no hope for respite,
I pray for help as I face each daily plight.
Who am I to ask for help from my grief,
A single soul among many hoping for relief.
With no choices ahead and still losing my way,
The only hope is to fall to my knees and pray.

Pray to the One who created all that there is & that will be,
He is the only One in life with a plan that can set me free.
Free from the pain I experience each day as it goes by,
Not knowing just what to do and always wondering way.
Now I can choose to have eternal hope or great despair,
I trust in God Almighty who truly loves me & always cares!!

Without You

Lord, we cannot make it in this world today without You,
You give us the strength we all need to make it through.
Only fools have hope for a better life by going at it alone,
You give us strength to have no fear facing the unknown.

Now each day closes with us nearer to the final end,
Soon we will hear Your Son calling on us all to ascend.
We will avoid the suffering coming to those who denied,
The truth that You raised Your Son 3 days after He died.

To many are foolish by refusing the power of Your Grace,
The only chance they have to accept Your saving embrace.
Is it pride or foolishness when they give Satan the power,
To decide how they will live and die in their remaing hours. 

It was God our Father who created us & all that does exists,
Who then offered his only Son for all our sins by the crucifix.
Never has there been a greater sacrifice by given by anyone,
His death paid all our debts so our salvation could be won!!
