The tongue has the power of life and death;
and those who love it will eat its fruit
The tongue is a doorway of life for our body soul and spirit.
Words give life, words kill. Words have the ability to hurt, to harm,
to heal and comfort.
Our words can build up and tear down.
By our words, we are justified therefore God is glorified.
We must let the words of our mouth and the mediation of our hearts
be acceptable in God's sight.

A Poem by Angelena Vernon
What grieves my spirit and baffles me
Is the performance of leaders in our society
A democracy that governs what we can do
Laws that are constitutional but cannot benefit you
Watching people struggle to make ends meet
Hearing about police brutality on the streets
Corruption among elected officials and politicians too
Has grieved many in our nation and not just a few
What makes my heart heavy and troubles me
Is how people analyze everything they see
How some are oppressed and walking in fear
Why we don’t want to endure hardships or persevere
With the cost of living expenses being sky high
Cremation is not an option when some people die
The times and the seasons are in God’s hands
He sanctions what will occur based on his plans
Nevertheless, what the world is experiencing now
I am fully persuaded we will prevail somehow
So why are we unsettled about the unknown
Things we cannot avoid that will be shown
Trials we cannot alter that God ordained
Miraculous miracles that no one can explain
No matter what befalls you or me
We must run to God and embrace
His love strength peace and unmerited grace
Psalm 91: 1 – Those that dwell in the shelter of the highest will remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no one can withstand].
“Vexation of the Soul was written based on the trying times we are facing today. Sometimes the pressures of life come from every direction."
By Perceptural Plazz
The following poem was written in the aftermath of the riots ignited by George Floyd's death.
The Day came when He was Crucified
Many Crucial Acts Occured Before He Died
He was Falsy Accused Just like today
When A Person of Color Gets in THEIR Way
He Was Beaten Beyond a Dog to an Unrecognizable Pulp
Only the Helpless and those with a Heart Yelled ‘STOP’
He was the ONLY Man that could take the Hate
Knowing He was Going to Die, His Only Fate
But He Allowed HIS Life to Go
Just So You and I Would KNOW
That There is a Method To All of This Maddness
Revealing a Final Destination without Eternal Saddness
Yes, We Protest and March and Show Our Concerns
But Not By Looting and Other Businesses we Burn
That Day Is Coming When you will Draw Your Last Breath
Will Your Last Acts Show Others Love or Selfish Regrets
Be Careful Christians You Followers of This Faith
Rethink Your Actions and Powerfully Find Another Way...
P.S. Keep Praying and Allow the Power of God To Show Itself.
Prayer Does Work If you At Least Consult it First. What Would Jesus Do.
I Bring You Peace.
In the midst of the pandemic, the senseless racial killings, and my sensitivity to 5G EMF frequencies, I woke up with a MAJOR headache. I had to press through the pain because I needed my QUIET TIME.
God's Divine Grace
