The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want

Wig’s Word of God Today 11-2-2010

God proves His love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want. Psalm 23

Wisdom 3:1-9, Psalm 23:1-3a, 3b-4, 5, 6, Romans 5:5-11, Romans 6:3-9 & John 6:37-40

I used to think nobody really has the courage to die for somebody else. How could anyone give their life for me? As we grow in faith in Christ Jesus, we learn what Jesus endured for each of us in His scourging and death. The pain and torment He took for us, humanity, causes me to cry when I sit and think about it. Each lash of a whip. Each thorn driven into His forehead. Each punch or kick in His ribs. Each time He was spit on. Each nail driven into His Hands and Feet. Once when I was a child, I jumped out of my tree fort onto a nail going through my foot. Nothing compared to what Christ accepted for you and me. Just remember when you are going through something really tough at work, home or in the traffic, think it is nothing compared to what Jesus endured for you and praise His Holy Name because of it.
 
Psalm 23 was one of the first Psalms my Grandmother Carter ever read to me as a child. I didn’t understand it but I knew it had great meaning. Today I can indentify with it completely. My surrender to a Life of Christ lends faith to the descriptions King David shared with Humanity in Psalm 23. I trust in the Lord to guide me, to strengthen me to lead me along His Path of the sake of His Name. I have tremendous courage because of His Love and I am anointed to Preach His Son’s Truth. I will dwell in His care all the days of my life. The Lord tells us in John 6:37-40 that He will not reject anyone who comes to Him. By loving our love of Christ we can surrender to the feeling Psalm 23 and know He will accept us, a poor sinner, by His statement, “I will not reject anyone who comes to Me, because I came down from heaven not to do My own will but the will of the One who sent Me.” John 6:37-38

 And so we pray: Heavenly Father, we pray today for strength to accomplish Your Will in all things. Guide us to be strong in Your Word. Guide us to be faithful to Your Son’s Truth. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen

God Bless,

Romans 8:28

Everything the Father Gives Him Will Come

Justly souls rest in His care
Pain eludes them each prepare
By faith in His Word no letter to spare
By Proclaiming the Gospel of Truth we dare

Punished by people by laws of the land
No Truth was shared to overcome their ban
In His love He foretold with His Hand
The love of His Son overcame life’s span

All will shine from the joy of Truth
Upon His visitation their sins He will loose
Trust in Him through His Gospel of Truth
His Resurrection as evidentiary proof

I want nothing from my Sheppard of Love
His path of righteousness follows up above
I drink from cool waters with His precious Dove
My soul refreshed from His Heavenly shove

No evil I will run from in times of need
His Staff of courage I grip daily indeed
Death’s Valley is shinning by Redemption in He
Whose Blood covers Humanity forever to be

His hope does not disappoint
Nor will His love desert you
His Blood covered all to anoint
His message of New Life to do

No one rejected by Him who comes
Everlasting love from God’s Only Son
Believe to accomplish Eternal Life in fun
Everything the Father gives Him will come

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
