Written by Sheila Hughes I’ve taken quite a beatingPeople have done me wrong,It hurts me down deep insideI have a pity party all day long.It’s always someone else’s faultWhy I act the way that I do,I’m blameless for my actionsIf I could, I sure would sue!I’ll just choose a victim mentalityAnd take advantage, all I can,If I scheme and work the systemPerhaps I’ll even get a free van.God wants us to ...

Written by Sheila Hughes Life is precious, a gift from GodGive thanks to Him each day,Enjoy the time with your familyWho knows when we’ll be taken away?Death is one of those sure thingsFor everyone will have to die,None of us look forward to itWe’ll miss our loved ones and cry.All is not lost for the ChristianWe have hope we’ll see them once more,What joy then will fill our heartsThey’ll be waitin...
Finding Clear Guidance

Written by Sheila HughesInside Christians have a Spiritual GPSThat will guide us all through life,Our problem, we don’t always listenConsequently, we then suffer strife.We selfishly get in the Lord’s wayAnd block our perception being clear,We often forget that God is in chargeWe may run from His will due to fear.Disobedience will cause consequencesAdversity knocks us down to our knees,In time we a...
