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
