His Power over Darkness





According to my adoption records I was a sensitive child. I once had an elder of a church say he thought I was a spiritually sensitive person. I know it has been a blessing in my life. I know in this world, especially in our very wealthy, money oriented culture that is so in love with ourselves, money, possessions, and pleasure, we have a tendency to deny or neglect the spiritual aspects of our lives. We are truly spirits only temporarily connected to our physical shell.

I have had several supernatural experiences, and what I guess I’m trying to lead up to is I have had three encounters with demons, very dark creatures.

The first happened many years ago when I was going through a very dark time in my life but trying to draw closer to Christ and God and the Holy Spirit. I woke up one night and a dark mass felt like it was laying on my chest. I was afraid and all I could think to do was say “In the name of Jesus of Nazareth, be gone.” It immediately was gone, left.

The second encounter was when I was on my first round of chemotherapy for my breast cancer. I was sleeping in an old recliner and suddenly woke up. I looked down and this dark person was laying on top of me. It looked up at me, smiled a perverted smile and asked, “Susie, what are you trying to do with this book.” I naturally was frightened but again said, “In the name of Jesus of Nazareth, be gone.” Within a heartbeat, it was gone. I was at the time working on a novel which I have finished which was about the useless divisions within our Christian churches or denominations we have created.

The third experience came about a year ago. I am still suffering fatigue from all the cancer treatments. One night I was awake, and a very dark man was in the room with me suddenly. I said, “In the name of Jesus of Nazareth, be gone.” He said to me, “No, it doesn’t work that way.” I immediately yelled for a second time, “Oh yes, it does. In the name of Jesus of Nazareth, be gone.” And he disappeared instantaneously.

Praise you Lord Jesus for the beauty of your face, your great and loving heart and also for your wonderful power and authority over everything in creation. Bless you Lord!! Thank you for your salvation from all of Satan’s schemes against us.

Not Little

He makes the 
Robin sing
The honey bee buzz
Old men cry
And babies laugh
Forces the sun’s
Blaze with fire
& sends the moon’s 
pale glow at night
not one of these things
is ever out of His hand
or His sight!

Knows every black hole
And every giant star
Every planet, every comet
We are able to see 
Only from afar
Holds a vast universe
In one hand
But we as tiny, 
So limited man
Really see only this dirt, 
This earth!

He Forces great nations
To rise
& then to fall
But, 
from the 
Human heart
Still hears the slightest,
Smallest call
For that is where
It starts!

Within the 
Human heart
Life starts &
Ends
Not in the wind
But in His breath
His Spirit
Living within!

Knows your
Every thought
Every care,
Every smile
Every tear
So never, ever
Have a moment’s fear
That your
Living, breathing
Powerful God
is not always near!

He is not small
He is not little
He will always
Rush to hear
About your life
The pain, the strife
You live in
God is going to win
Eternity belongs to Him
And so do you
If you will only choose!!!





Encounter

Encounter
(on a busy sidewalk)

a busy city sidewalk
crowded,
elbow to elbow
on every face is
shown
pressure mounting
higher, higher

streets full of cars
jostling for position
under each red light
this caravan of busy
reaching out of sight
noisy cacophony of 
impatient horns

But yet, into
This man-made
Mess of madness
A sense of peace,
True Destiny,
Walks with us
Side by side
On each busy street
& sidewalk

Unseen, but not
Unfelt
He walks 
In His royal robe
Searching, looking
Passing by
Among us
Longing to touch
Each heart
Desiring to give
Reveal, impart
Himself
A better life
Temporarily out of
Sight
But sensed

In that small breeze
That touches 
Your skin
Ruffles the edges
Of your heart
Look up 
New life begins
At the edge of
The old

As your King
Walks past
In the crowd
Let him win
Without any doubt
Yourself
Without a sound
Or shout
He will give to you
More than a busy
Sidewalk’s chaos
Let him come, refresh
As only Christ can do
& give to you 
A better life anew!




To DANCE in the RAIN!

I dance in the rain

Under dark, cloudy skies

With arms, hands raised

I offer up my only gift

Of joyful praise

Upward in our God’s name!

Life’s rains on all
Will fall
But that only 
Sends out the call
To love harder
Dance even more
As the painful rains
Around us pour
Our God suffered 
the rains also
To help us grow
In grace, to become
Closer to His face

This loving Christ

On man’s evil cross

Still offered to us

His Glorious & Eternal

Joy-filled Paradise!

On Fire!

On Fire

Burning cross
On a hill
Your voice 
Rings out
To tell us still

Of a Savior’s heart
So full of passion
And fire
Never will Christ stop
Or ever tire

Of pouring His love
Upon this earth
To light His
Glorious fire
Within His church

So his family 
May lead
Darkened hearts
To see
Their Savior
On a burning cross
Seeking to save
All & every of 
The eternally lost.




You’ve Been Lied To

You’ve Been Lied To

By an enemy so dark
Seeking only to destroy
       Your heart
     Your very self

Powerful above us all
Do not listen to his call
Turn away, turn away
Before it’s too late
From those hot destructive
            Gates
From the one who wishes
     To destroy you
       That satan
Turn from his angry hate

Telling you he does not exist
   Oh, how he does wish
       You would listen
   & be utterly deceived
           At that
he will laugh & dance 
         With glee,
To destroy God’s child

He tries to whisper, tell 
          Or yell
Live only for today
He’ll come to you to say
    Be your own god!
Live only for your own lusts
You must just simply trust
What that evil, dark one says

So to a world
    out of control
Lusting after a fool’s gold
     I would say
       Let Go!
A day is coming when all 
    Will be judged
Please do not continue or follow
    Your dark trudge
   Away from the light

A larger house, a fancy car
Will not help you reach
         For the stars
For this you were truly destined
Even though you may be tested,
     Tempted on this earth

Return to the One whose
      Face you bear
Release to Him all your cares
     In His light only 
     Come to share
Walk into His New World’s 
            Life 
Free of all pain, guilt & strife!
