From God's Heart, to Mine, to Yours 
Book #1 by E. P. Shagott
Narrated by Jamal 
West

Here are some poems and insights from book #1!

For sure I have been blessed to pen many, many, many poems.  As I reread them I do see God’s message in all of them.  this poem is about “LIGHT”. For the Father, son and Holy Spirit outshines everything.  May His light shine on yours, everyday!
 


The Son’s Light

Don’t walk in darkness,
when His light is always there.
Let Jesus brighten your day
and take away your despair.
 
Don’t let the worries of today
keep dark clouds all around.
Step out into the Son’s light,
and see all His beauty to be found.
 
Don’t listen to the worldly lies
that bombard us every day.
Let the Father, Spirit and the Son’s light
shine through you today.
 
Do trust in the Heavenly Father
as you go throughout your day.
Believe in His Word and be blessed
and let His Son light your way.

Each one believes as we want to.  This message I believe is my heart reaching out to all that will hear. Because the Lord has touched my life, I want for others to feel His love and grace.  I am just a tool in His toolbox! Yes, use me Lord!



Show Them, Touch Them, Reach Them, Lord

Show them Lord of Your awesome power.
Touch them Lord with Your mercy and grace.
Reach them Lord so they all will know,
it’s not about this time or of this place.
 
Show them Lord that Your Word is truth.
Touch them Lord so they will never stray.
Reach them Lord each click of the clock,
for it’s not about them, but You each day.
 
Show them Lord each stripe on Your back.
Touch them Lord so they will finally understand.
Reach them Lord as only You can do,
for You truly are the Great I AM!
 
Show them, Touch them, Reach them Lord,
so in their lives You become so true.
Use me Lord to show, touch and reach them,
so they all can love You, like I do!

I love this poem about choices.  There are consequences to what we choose.  I do believe because God loves us so for Him to receive that love back He did it by giving each of us free will.  He also gave us His Word to live by.  What we do is up to us.
 


It’s Up To You

It’s up to you what you do,
the choice is totally yours.
You decide each step you take
as you walk throughout your years.
 
Right or wrong, good or bad,
you decide what to do,
but as you decide always remember,
God is watching you.
 
You can make someone happy
or take away their smile.
The words that you choose to speak
can make or break them for a long while.
 
You can decide to forgive,
the wrong someone has done,
or you can harbor resentment,
right from the beginning of day one.
 
The choice is yours given by God,
for that’s the way He wanted it to be.
Ever since the fall of man He said,
“You can choose a sinful life or you can choose Me!”

For sure there is a great message in this poem.  Everyday we just believe that our bodies will function as it did the previous day.  Like so many things in this life we just take for granted that it will continue day after day but as so many have found out that is not the case.


I Took It All For Granted

When I awoke this morning,
from my eyes I could not see.
The light that once shown from the window,
it’s now all darkness to me.
 
I tried to call out for help,
but my words they would not flow.
The blessings I took for granted yesterday,
are no longer with me now.
 
My limbs that once were active,
now hang limp at my side.
My feet that once carried me to places,
are not responsive, even when I try.
 
The moral of this poem is,
“Do not take for granted what you have today,
use what the good Lord has blessed you with,
for His purpose, before it goes away.”

I must admit I have found myself on several lonely roads in my life.  Probably some of the roads I should of known better than to be on.  The message in this poem is no matter what the road God is there with you, “if you want Him to be!” He is saying “Come to Me” each and everyone.


The Lonely Road

I am traveling a lonely road
where others have also been.
But every time I travel this road,
it’s filled with sadness and despair again.
 
How can I change direction?
Which way is actually right?
I am so tired of being in darkness.
Can someone show me where is the light?
 
I hear a voice in the distance
Saying, “Come to Me, even though you cannot see.
I am your Lord God,
come to Me and really be free.
 
Whatever obstacle you encounter,
I have conquered before you.
Keep walking toward the light,
for you will find Me there, too!”

A true message for true believers. I say true believers for it is truly a heart issue. A relationship that begins when you truly surrender your life for His. Not a second goes by that He is not there with you.

He Is Always There

 

I reached my hand out to Him,

I felt Him grasp my heart,

His love grew even stronger,

than when my walk with Him did start.

 

I cried out “Thank You, Lord Jesus”,

for He always hears my call.

He is always there for me,

if I stumble or even when I fall.

 

He loved me before I knew Him,

He is there day by day.

I cannot live without Him

for there is no other way.

 

And what is truly amazing

is if I feel like this today,

I can’t begin to imagine how it will be,

when Jesus and I will be together some sweet day!

A very true message He blessed me with here. Probably a lot of non-believers would just laugh and say “How can they be hurting, they have God?” Well, the pain a believer feels is the same pain Jesus felt as He was being beaten and scorned. It is the same pain that the non-believers feel except as believers we know a day is coming when we will never feel pain or hurt again. Praise God!

The Christian Hurts

The Christian hurts like everyone else,

we feel the suffering and the pain.

But what separates us from all the rest

is the power of Jesus name.

 

When storm clouds come

and the sun disappears,

we can stand firm,

for with Jesus we have no fear.

 

Though the pain is real

and the suffering is there,

our Lord and Savior gives us

no more than we can bear.

 

So stay firm on His Word,

and to His name always be true,

for because of His love,

He is always there for you!

As I reread this poem I believe the Lord’s message comes out loud and clear, “IT’S ABOUT HIM”! No wonder so many go through this life aimlessly trying to please themselves.

 

Your Purpose

 

You have a job to do for God,

something you were designed to do.

So many people go through life

never understanding what theirs is too.

 

The work that He has for us,

to many may seem simple or small.

But to God, our Father above,

important work for one and all.

 

See, the more you focus on Jesus,

you’ll understand the work He has begun,

for He always said, “Father, not my will,

but let Your will be done!”

 

Friends, you will never understand your purpose

that God created you to be,

until you can look in the mirror

and say to yourself, “It’s not about me!”

For sure in this life we will carrying many crosses. Jesus did say we would have trials and tribulations in this world (John 16:33). But as in that same scripture as in this poem the same is true, my friends He has conquered all and is always there when we go through our trials.

 

Crosses

I had a dream I walked with Jesus,

carrying our crosses, side by side.

Though mine was so much smaller,

I felt Him lift the burden as time went by.

 

With each step He looked at me,

His eyes were filled with love.

He steadied me when I began to stumble,

giving praise to the Father above.

 

At first the journey seemed too long,

to carry my cross all that way,

Jesus spoke to me and said,

“It’s not about the burden

but what you do through it today.”

 

So whatever the cross you are carrying,

may it become an aide to you,

to help someone else that is hurting

and show them Jesus is with them too.
