Jesus came and did everything God wanted Him to do.  His greatest miracle was the resurrection. This proves that He is the only true and living God. (poem; The Great Sacrifice in the book Poetic Parables).

After Jesus left earth and went to hell and then to heaven, He sent the Holy Spirit (Holy Ghost to some people) to comfort and guide us until He comes back again.

In my book, “Poetic Parable: Listen with your Heart”, you will find many poems pointing to the Holy Spirit and expressing the love of God and how much Jesus wants to be apart of your life.

Do you ever recall saying ” a little voice told me…” or that gut feeling you had before making a decision?  Well that was the Holy Spirit speaking to you. Please do not ignore Him!  He is a real person, the third person of the Trinity.  The Father, Son and Holy Spirit is the

Godhead.  God has our best interest at heart. So make no mistakes and push those warning signs away.  Even when He tells you the smallest thing, you better believe it will have an everlasting impact on your memory and in your life.  So do it or you will regret it and may not get a second chance to correct it.

First, you must develop a relationship with the Godhead so you will be able to know His voice.  The enemy will always try to intervene and confuse you.  Satan will have you leaning in the direction of your fleshly desires.  You must kill the flesh daily by denying and resisting that ungodly desire until it is dead. The flesh must die daily in order to please God.  It is easier to please God then to experience His wrath.  Choose ye this day whom you will serve is a quote from the King James Bible.

Jesus wants us/you to choose Him. Choose life and live!  Re-read this poem “Choose life and live” and meditate on it.  You will break out in a smile once you get the true meaning of it. Read  “Poetic Parables: Listen with your Heart” and purchase the Parent book, “Listen With Your Heart.  Every poem in these books can reflect on something or someone that has been or has happened in your life.

Enjoy life and live!  Remember, you are not living if you do not have a personal relationship with the Godhead; The Father, Son (Jesus) and the Holy Spirit.  So live and not just exist! Do not just go through the motions of life, CHOOSE LIFE AND LIVE for HIM!

I love you to life, God bless you and answer His call!
