My life truly began 25 years ago when I ran head on into the kingdom of God on the side of a lake in Baton Rouge Louisiana. I'd been running from God most of my life,30 years @ that time. Grief oveeeer my wife running off with another man had driven me to drinking & drugging by this time, & it was wrecking my life. Something happened during that encounter with God. I've never desired booze or drugs again in 25 years. Instead, my life has been dedicated to helping others to find what I've found in my relationship with God more »

Living for Tomorrow
I've lived for tomorrow all of my life filling the present with worry & strife;
Lament Of A hypocrite
Seen of men I bawl & squall. From my eyes great tears will fall. All the time I must confess my life is one big stinking mess.
Walking in the light
I saw a light from afar one day; & since it seemed not far away I thought I'd travel toward the light. I soon found out it was too bright.
You're a friend so special. You're a friend so true. You're a friend I'll always want. No matter what you do.
Friends like you
My life sometimes is troubled with darkness everywhere. @ times like these it's nice to know there's always someone there;
Would you like to know God; know the joy His presence can give? have overwhelming peace when in His presence you choose to live?
What should I do LORD?
Life can be so painful LORD; & so hard to understand. Especially @ those times when my problems get out of hand.
When I'm all alone
It seems when life's the darkest there's not a friend around. It seems when things get hopeless there's no comfort to be found.
Would my life be any different
I just turned fifty yesterday My how time slips away If I had it all to do over again would I still be the same old man?
In the presence of God
It takes a sincere & honest man to walk the path a christian myst trod For the path we follow is filled with light & the light is the very presence of God
There till the end
Warmed a pew for 20 years filled with many doubts & fears, never knowing what life was about, trapped in a snare I couldn't get out.
Take a seat in the rear
When your life is full of trouble falling apart around you; seems it's going from bad to worse no matter what you do.
What fools men are Violence tends their way Darkness fills their heart Misery fills their day
When the light shines in
I lived in darkness year after year cowering in a corner filled with fear. Noone knew what was going on I kept to myself stayed all alone

Living for Tomorrow
I've lived for tomorrow
all of my life
filling the present
with worry & strife;
expecting the worst,
destined for failure
right at the first.
