***********************************************************************
1Corinthians 15:55-56 (KJV)
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
***********************************************************************


The more I walketh the path of holiness, the more I realized I cannot do it myself. If I will not look to you, oh Christ, I cannot make any step forward, instead, I fall and fall, down the bottom of the stairs.

Oh death, always hunting me. I walketh on the grave while holding this life that was lighted by Christ. But this world is really a grave keeping me out from the doors of my spirit. The laws of living doesn't help me, but chains me to the grave.

But youre always here, oh Christ. Your hands are always there extending for me to reach. When I can't reach out and just cry, your healing wings shelters me, you let me still untill I gain strength to make a step again.

I keep in my heart not to cling on this world, for it's shutting me out from the doors of my spirit, in there we met, in there I'm healed, maketh me indisturbed by the hunts of death even I walketh on the graves.

Oh the source of life, I'm giving You all the glory. The one who breath me, the one who loves me. My first and original love. My Shining Armour, who won the battle for me, death stumbled under my feet.

I love You, my First and Original Love.

Your love for the Lord shines through and somehow makes the spelling mistakes less obvious.

good thoughts. I have found that unlike most things...the more you mature in the Lord, the more you realize how much you are totally dependent on Him for everything.

Your entry reads like a sonnet. Your choice of words has a nice effect. Pretty. Thanks for sharing it.

yeah, first entries could look like this, but the Holy Spirit really touches the heart of this one.

You made me think of our brother David, the psalmist. You have a heart which worships the Lord. God bless you.
