When I Looked

When I was lost

I looked to faith and was found by HIM who will never leave

When I was alone

I looked to hope and found a Friend through my grief to bring within more peace

When I was in need

I looked to love of my Friend who set me free from fears that ceased

When I was desperate for change

I looked to mercy freeing from failure to be released

When I was growing

I looked to grace HE gives that lifted me above my failure to be in a family that increased

When I was helped

I looked to compassion from HIM within the family to give forward what I received

When I was newly open

I now look forward to a hope and a future conceived

When I was learning what was in HIS heart

I now look with vision of a future forthcoming where orphans find relief

When I was seeking HIS will

I now look with purpose forthcoming of Heaven filled with others who too believe

Casting My Net

Come up empty in debt

Keep casting my net

Won’t give up yet

With faith have leapt

With hope keep step

With love am kept

Walk in YOUR Way direct

Walk in YOUR Truth correct

Walk in YOUR Life resurrect

On your mark get set

Go… until YOUR will is met

Forget what is behind to leave regret

Beyond what I think, ask, or imagine will offset

Let grace be what I interpret

Let mercy be new so won’t forget

Let compassion be my outlet

Let the Spirit be an available asset

Turn to YOU whenever fear and doubt detect

Turn to YOU for greater wisdom out of respect

Turn to YOU to share YOUR Word with the outcast and elect

Turn to YOU on top of the water getting my feet wet

Seek to be pure to be secure select

Seek to be true through and through connect

Seek to be free again and again forgiven reset

Seek to be wise for saving souls intersect

Focus on orphans and widows and to keep from being polluted is perfect

All I am and all I do for YOU reflect

Freedom

Freedom comes within when forgiven of our sin

Freedom continues on when fear and doubt are cast out by Love given

Freedom commemorates when restates purpose with greater vision

Freedom captivates when delights in the LORD become ones desires driven

Freedom can’t wait to walk the straight and narrow with greater faith, hope, and love to live in

Freedom coordinates with grace, mercy, and compassion to bring healing within setting captives free from prison

Freedom cries out to listen to wisdom to embrace the Great Commission with decision to serve on mission for a pure religion to reach the widow and orphan in pure devotion forward go on until Heaven reach above risen…

HIS reality with their mind perceive

HIS reality with their heart believe

HIS reality with their soul receive

HIS reality with their spirit conceive

 

Guiding them in HIS Way claim with HIS Name; ask and it will be given to you by the Master 

Feeding them HIS Truth proclaim in HIS Name; seek and find to be forgiven anew safe from disaster

Igniting them within HIS Life reclaim for HIS Name; knock and the door be opened into green pasture

Stand

Stand For Pure Strength…

Stand With Those Traumatized…

Stand Against Sexual Violence.

My wife and I take our stand with children, women, and men who’ve ever been sexually abused, a part of incest, pornography, sex trafficking, and/or rape.

We stand with you and for you with GOD the FATHER in Christ…  It is wrong what was done to you and it wasn’t your fault, at all or at any time…  You deserve freedom from the hurt, pain, guilt, and shame you experience…  We are praying for just that to occur in your precious lives…  We join with you on your healing journey to encourage, support, accept, and love you through it all, for the breakthroughs you’ll experience, and the new life you’ll gain…  Get in touch with us if you are in need to share your burdens you bear…

John 10:28-30

28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all[a]; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one.”

Proverbs 31:8-9

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
    for the rights of all who are destitute.
Speak up and judge fairly;
    defend the rights of the poor and needy.

 

My wife and I take our stand against all sexual abusers, incest perpetrators, pornographers, sex traffickers, and rapists.

You are declared in the wrong, will be discovered in your wrongdoing, and be devastated  by the outcome…  I can’t promise you GOD’s forgiveness, but you will never obtain it if you continue to use your coward’s power to hurt children.  You are responsible for their depression, hurt, pain, false guilt of your own guilt, shame, trauma, mental illness, cutting, self-harm, suicidal ideation, battle with demons, hopelessness, etc.  After reading this, its your last chance to repent or deal with horrific consequences.  Hell is a real place.  Stop what you’re doing, leave the family alone to allow healing to begin, and/or bring the child/children to a safe place with police, firemen, hospital, or church when people are there to care for them where you decide to never touch a child wrongly again.  You are not allowed to keep hurting others.  If you don’t stop, GOD will bring about what you fear most and beyond and you will experience far more fear than your victims have ever felt.  The battle is the LORD’s and HE will win in the end.  You will hate your end and the beginning of your torment that will last forever…

There may be forgiveness if you:

Isaiah 55:7

Let the wicked forsake their ways
    and the unrighteous their thoughts.
Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them,
    and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

If you don’t repent:

Matthew 18:6

Causing to Stumble

“If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.

 

I take 5 smooth stones and throw them for GOD to direct the direct hits at Sexual Abuse, Incest, Pornography, Sex trafficking, and Rape…  May GOD my FATHER and the LORD JESUS cause these giants to fall, fall away, fall into oblivion…

My wife and I take our stand against all this evil, satan’s snares, demon occupancy in the land, and the strongholds that strangle out the Way, the Truth, and the Life for JESUS to be known, safe green pasture, GOD’s Presence, faith/hope/love, and GOD granting grace, mercy, and compassion to flow to and into those hurt and ravaged by the enemy.  May GOD’s freedom and wealth of love become overflowing where it’s needed and overflowing in and through HIS people to share with the hurting…

Ephesians 6:10-18

The Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit,which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

 

If you are joining in this evil, you’re binding yourself to the enemy with satan himself and your demise will be with him…  his destination is a lake of fire.

We as a family firmly stand strong on the ROCK of our Salvation, on John 10: 28-30, Proverbs 31:8-9, and Ephesians 6:10-18

We as a family also stand on Psalm 37 and Psalm 91 and Matthew 18: 18-20 and James 1:27…

 

Psalm 37

Psalm 37[a]

Of David.

Do not fret because of those who are evil
    or be envious of those who do wrong;
for like the grass they will soon wither,
    like green plants they will soon die away.

Trust in the Lord and do good;
    dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Take delight in the Lord,
    and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the Lord;
    trust in him and he will do this:
He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
    your vindication like the noonday sun.

Be still before the Lord
    and wait patiently for him;
do not fret when people succeed in their ways,
    when they carry out their wicked schemes.

Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
    do not fret—it leads only to evil.
For those who are evil will be destroyed,
    but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.

10 A little while, and the wicked will be no more;
    though you look for them, they will not be found.
11 But the meek will inherit the land
    and enjoy peace and prosperity.

12 The wicked plot against the righteous
    and gnash their teeth at them;
13 but the Lord laughs at the wicked,
    for he knows their day is coming.

14 The wicked draw the sword
    and bend the bow
to bring down the poor and needy,
    to slay those whose ways are upright.
15 But their swords will pierce their own hearts,
    and their bows will be broken.

16 Better the little that the righteous have
    than the wealth of many wicked;
17 for the power of the wicked will be broken,
    but the Lord upholds the righteous.

18 The blameless spend their days under the Lord’s care,
    and their inheritance will endure forever.
19 In times of disaster they will not wither;
    in days of famine they will enjoy plenty.

20 But the wicked will perish:
    Though the Lord’s enemies are like the flowers of the field,
    they will be consumed, they will go up in smoke.

21 The wicked borrow and do not repay,
    but the righteous give generously;
22 those the Lord blesses will inherit the land,
    but those he curses will be destroyed.

23 The Lord makes firm the steps
    of the one who delights in him;
24 though he may stumble, he will not fall,
    for the Lord upholds him with his hand.

25 I was young and now I am old,
    yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken
    or their children begging bread.
26 They are always generous and lend freely;
    their children will be a blessing.[b]

27 Turn from evil and do good;
    then you will dwell in the land forever.
28 For the Lord loves the just
    and will not forsake his faithful ones.

Wrongdoers will be completely destroyed[c];
    the offspring of the wicked will perish.
29 The righteous will inherit the land
    and dwell in it forever.

30 The mouths of the righteous utter wisdom,
    and their tongues speak what is just.
31 The law of their God is in their hearts;
    their feet do not slip.

32 The wicked lie in wait for the righteous,
    intent on putting them to death;
33 but the Lord will not leave them in the power of the wicked
    or let them be condemned when brought to trial.

34 Hope in the Lord
    and keep his way.
He will exalt you to inherit the land;
    when the wicked are destroyed, you will see it.

35 I have seen a wicked and ruthless man
    flourishing like a luxuriant native tree,
36 but he soon passed away and was no more;
    though I looked for him, he could not be found.

37 Consider the blameless, observe the upright;
    a future awaits those who seek peace.[d]
38 But all sinners will be destroyed;
    there will be no future[e] for the wicked.

39 The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord;
he is their stronghold in time of trouble.
40 The Lord helps them and delivers them;
he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
because they take refuge in him.

Psalm 91

Psalm 91

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust.”

Surely he will save you
    from the fowler’s snare
    and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers,
    and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night,
    nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
    nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
    ten thousand at your right hand,
    but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes
    and see the punishment of the wicked.

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
    and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
    no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
    you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”

Matthew 18:18-21

18 “Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be[a] bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be[b] loosed in heaven.

19 “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”

James 1:27

27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

 

We as a family stand for what is PURE…

We as a family stand for the orphans and widows…

We as a family stand for children, women, and men affected by sexual abuse, incest, pornography, sex trafficking, and rape…

We as a family stand for keeping ourselves from being polluted by the world and to help those to know they can be made PURE as well…

What is Blogger Recognition Award?

The Blogger Recognition Award is an award that recognizes talented bloggers and helps bloggers to support each other’s creations. This award encourages the bloggers to inspire all through their writing and nominate their inspiring bloggers.

Backstory of My Blogging Journey

beavoicefororphans is inspired by GOD the FATHER and my LORD and Savior Jesus Christ…  I could not be a voice without HIS faithful mercy, compassion, and grace working in me by HIS Spirit pouring within faith, hope, and love to overflowing…

Writing, for me, didn’t spark interest within until entering college.  Upon taking English I, I had an inspiring professor who encouraged us to write about what inspired us about visiting a place in St. Louis along Euclid Ave.  I just couldn’t find anything to write about until the lights turned on along the walkway lined with small shops.  It was the lights that  sparked what I would write about.  I was inspired by him to write well (getting A’s) on the 4 types of writing he assigned.

Then several years later, I took a poetry summer class.  Another inspiring professor gave us our first assignment.  She wrote 15-20 words on the white board and asked us to write a poem in 5 minutes.  I used every word in a sentence that rhymed throughout.  Her feedback on the paper was “Amazing, keep writing”.  I did just that!  I kept writing, mostly poetry for I grew to love this style of communication so much…  I have written poetry ongoing since 1995…  I mostly wrote in my quiet times with the LORD…

In 2003, I committed my creative writing to the LORD…  HE had already given me a heart for orphans.  During Christmas of the same year, our gifts (through participation in Samaritan’s Purse Christmas Shoebox outreach) went to India to a pastor’s 3 children.  He wrote back to me that he desired to continue correspondence.  I soon discovered he cares for orphans.  We soon started supporting the care of orphans and K.O.R.E. ministry was founded.  K.O.R.E. expanded and support for more orphans with another pastor launched.  Just recently, my oldest daughter began giving to a 3rd pastor caring for orphans…  I have 1 more pastor in mind who cares for orphans that we would like to support again as well.

After committing my creative writing to the LORD, I spent an extended period of time writing purely as being a voice for orphans inspired by GOD’s Spirit…  You can read these poems on the K.O.R.E. for more website at the following link:

K.O.R.E. for more

GOD’s Heart:

Psalm 68:5

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows,
    is God in his holy dwelling.

 

Our Mission with HIM:

Proverbs 31:8-9

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
for the rights of all who are destitute.
Speak up and judge fairly;
defend the rights of the poor and needy.

 

While sitting at the Caloosahatchee River in Florida, GOD put it on my heart to “walk on the water” for orphans.  HE didn’t mean for me to walk literally upon the river physically, but to reach out with care and love to them…  It required faith…  Faith in action…  It required hope…  Hope that GOD the FATHER would use us to make a positive impact in orphans lives…  It required love…  Love to show GOD’s love in and through us to them…  Orphans require provision, from GOD through HIS people, of shelter, food, clothing, faith, hope, love, mercy, grace, compassion, encouragement, and a place of belonging in a family/church…

The next step was to start this blog as an extension of what GOD was doing for orphans and to share HIS heart of love for them…

I hope beavoicefororphans inspires, motivates, and encourages you to support orphans in some way:  to be a voice for orphans, to provide for orphans, and/or visit orphans…  If you would like to do just that, let me know…  I will share with you simple and easy steps for you to come alongside the journey…  Let’s store up treasure in Heaven sending ripple effects of rescue, restoration, and redemption of precious lives…  You can even become a part of the K.O.R.E. team…
