Power of Grace
“Donkey Tells, The Beginning”
Whispers of honey that breaks the chains that in slaves us, it is the power that frees us.
First put yourself at peace,
and then you may the better
make others be at peace.
A peaceful and patient man
is of more profit to himself
and to others,
too, than a learned man who has no peace.
Within the soul’s heart
a seed of joy is planted
dying it tales root.
As joy sends out rootlets fibers
cracking. slicing, and digging into
the rock hard stone face of sadness.
Crumbling. crunching, and feasting on
the darkness of depression
sprout forth the seedlings
contentment and gladness.
From the fresh tilled soil
nutrients are leeched out of
anger, envy, and strife,
Thrive the saplings
generosity, unselfishness, and gentleness.
Cut down, uprooted, and turned to compost
is the poison vine’s upshot
hate, rage, and self-ambition.
Budding now the Vine of Grace
Fragrantly flowering is
goodness, self-control. and faithfulness.
Fire from Heaven
consumes the tree of death
the ash of
debauchery and lust
is whisked away in the Holy Wind
Found here is
the Tree of Life
ripened fruit burst open
showers of sweet nectar of
Peace and Love.
I am standing atop
this snow packed mountain summit,
rolling this snowball named Love.
What shall happen when…
this snowball named Love
is tumbled from this pinnacle’s edge
With shouts of praise
to God’s only Son!
A great mountain becomes
Grace isn’t a little prayer you
chant before receiving a meal. It is a
way of life.
No I am not back on-line yet, just being creative on reaching out! Hoping this works!?
I cannot begin to express how deeply this post describes the place in my life I am at now. Yes the Lord has taken me into the valley and I go of my own freewill for when our Abba returns me to the mountain I shall be the humble and meek man for God’s vision in me.

The parched ground shall become a pool . . . —Isaiah 35:7
We always have a vision of something before it actually becomes real to us. When we realize that the vision is real, but is not yet real in us, Satan comes to us with his temptations, and we are inclined to say that there is no point in even trying to continue. Instead of the vision becoming real to us, we have entered into a valley of humiliation.
Life is not as idle ore,
But iron dug from central gloom,
And battered by the shocks of doom
To shape and use.
God gives us a vision, and then He takes us down to the valley to batter us into the shape of that vision. It is in the valley that so many of us give up and faint. Every God-given vision will become real if we will…

I am not giving anyone the cold shoulder: My laptop has caught a virus this past Sunday. The geek was thinking it was not terminal… Yet in his last report to me the virus was winning the war!!!!
I will be back as soon as possible reading your post, responding to your comments, and writing. The good part is has given me this much-needed time to be with our Abba to listen and wait on Him.
the news from the final reading of Donkey Tells this Wednesday night is:::
The angels in heaven are rejoicing for the little lost lamb has been found!!
I could have spent my whole life just a common man paying my tithe on Sunday. I would have content just being a blue-collar worker all of my days. Yet one day I ask of our Messiah can You use me? Is there any way I can be used to build Your church? I prayed do You my God have a dream for my life? Out of that prayer Men of One Accord was born and the blog Men of One Accord took its first steps. The task was simple teach men to pray in one accord and that I have done for most of my walk with Christ.
Out of praying in unity with men a new prayer in my life began years back. Lord do You have a dream for my life? My Abba please break my heart for the things that breaks Your heart? Out this prayer grew a new hunger. A hunger to reach the children of middle school age with the love of Jesus. My heart was broken for them for I saw how the world seduced them with violence and lies. I cried before Abba’s throne night and day, the Men of One Accord agreed in prayer as we cried out as one: Use me to show the Love of Jesus to our children.
Out these prayers a new dream was dreamed, a story about a donkey born. 2013 on Christmas Eve day I learned “Donkey Tells, A Promise Kept” was published and released for sale. My heart has grown more broken and my hunger to reach the children has become ravenous. My prayer became I will go, ask of me anything, but Lord save our children. It was made very clear I was to move and the Lord picked a place named Oak Ridge, Tn. the Secret City.
A house was waiting here in Oak Ridge and Donkey Tells was here before me too. As you know I have been reading to the children on Wednesday nights and will soon finish the book. God has promised a harvest I know His word is true and many of you have been praying with me too.
On this morning I met with the pastor of the church I have been reading at. To shorten what was decided in a three-hour meeting is I will be doing another reading. This time the reading shall be at a city park and the whole town is invited. I think it is going to called Family Night Out with a Donkey. Out of these years of prayers something new has been born:
I shall soon be starting a new blog called yes: Donkey Tells Ministries!
I will be using the blog for many things like some of the stories of what God is doing in the lives of the children and their families. Upcoming events ect.
To all of you that have prayed and to all of you that will pray with me in One Accord for our children you shall have an equal reward in the Harvest of the Lord. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you and His peace, Amen.
