KNOWING IS HALF THE BATTLE WON



I LOVE KNOWING
FROM INFANCY, I
KNEW THE HOLY
SCRIPTURES.
SALVATION
THROUGH FAITH IN
CHRIST JESUS,
SHOULD PLEASE US
TRAINING IN RIGHTEOUSNESS, REBUKING IS A FIGHT OF BLISS, I'M A SERVANT OF GOD THOROUGHLY EQUIP FOR THE BATTLE WON EVERYDAY OF FIGHT TO BE JUDGED JUSTLY THE LIVING OF MY DEAD LIFE LIVED. THE STRONG HEAVY VOICE GOD GAVE ME RIGHTLY SO TO PREACH THE WORD, MY POETRY FLOWS TO EARS SHUT-WIDE OPEN ENCOURAGING GODS LOST CHILDREN TO COME SEEK HIM IN JESUS HOLY NAME. I'M HERE BECAUSE I ENDURE HARDSHIP, ALL MY FAITH FLOWS FROM EVERY FIBER OF MY BEING, ITS FREEING, LET'S DO THE WORK OF AN EVANGELIST DISCHARGE ALL THE DUTIES OF OUR MINISTRY.
I LOVE KNOWING
FROM INFANCY, I
KNEW THE HOLY
SCRIPTURES.
SALVATION
THROUGH FAITH IN
CHRIST JESUS
SHOULD PLEASE US.
IN JESUS HOLY NAME... AMEN
