“READ,…MY,…REFLECTIONS”!...


Giving thanks, is the will of Almighty-God,…for us!…(please see, 1st Thessalonians 5:18). This time of year,(during Easter-time); often brings my heart to shout-out my thanksgiving, for all the bounty,…which Almighty-God; has bestowed upon us, but our Apostle Paul,…exhorts us, here: “In everything, give thanks”!... Such gratefulness, is almost a lost art,…in our day; despite the fact that, it is stated here,…to: be the will of God!...


When thanksgiving is not, forthcoming,…it; often expresses an attitude, which says,…”Well, you owed it to me anyway”; or perhaps it might mean that, “What you gave, I really did not need,…or; want”. It may sometimes mean that, “Your gift, was not up to my expectations”… There seems to be some, who think that,…”My gifts, come from my Lord,…and therefore; I do (Not) need to express, any kind of gratitude,…toward, mankind”!...


Paul’s counsel,…contradicts this. “Render therefore, to all,…their dues; tribute, to whom tribute,…is due; custom, to whom custom; fear, to whom fear; honor, to whom honor”…(please read, Romans 13:7). Those, who give of themselves,…should indeed be, honored; even as Paul commended the Macedonian saints, for their liberal giving!...(please see, 2nd Corinthians 8).


He also declared, that the receivers,…of those gifts; “Pray-For”,…and; “Long-After”, (or, earnestly desire); those who have expressed, “The exceeding Grace-of-God”,…toward them…(please read, 2nd Corinthians 9:14). For this cause, I today,…would like to express, my own deep; and heart-felt appreciation, to all those,…who; have been so Faithful, in the giving,…to: all who are the needy, immediately surrounding you!...


Today, I also value,…so very highly; those, who continue to,…”Hold our hands-up”; with their Love, Faith and Prayers,…yes, even: for my ministry. Thank you, seems to come short,…of my true gratitude; but my Lord, (Christ-Jesus),…will surely reward: all your efforts, with Eternal-Glory!... Amen.


Your Friend,
Izzy!...

“A-NEW-BEE,…IN-MY,…BONNET!”….



There is a lot, you don’t know about me. May I consider you, a Dear Friend?... But, do Dear-Friends, refer to each other,…so formally?.... Call me, what you wish; (although, I prefer it to be, by my nick-name of,…Izzy!)…


You, as of this day forward,…are my Dear-Friend; and so, I am happy to call myself,…yours. Now, I want to know more,…about you. If there is a lot about you, I don’t know,…how then; could I ever feel, like we are,…Friends?...


I am known, as a straight-forward,…opinionated guy; and most people, (male and female, alike),…I find; pretty much, appreciate me. Friendly, confident and out-going,…truly; I have no enemies, that I am aware of!....


Loud, I am (Not); although I must admit, I am a bit,…of a people-magnet. Well, now,…today; all of the sudden, I find myself,…not only Saved: but also, most sound-of-mind. Perhaps, I am a day late,…and a dollar short; but, I am learning,…that: it still,…counts!....


But, I got a whole,…(“NEW-BEE,…IN-MY,…BONNET”),…now; and I’m knocking people over, with it. Call it, a personal-hobby that has become,…an obsession. Writing, is nowhere near my field,…of expertise; and don’t ask me, where the compulsion,…has come from!....


I am, with God’s Grace,…striving toward; the sharpest sentences, ever fashioned,…by hand. I’m interested, in the best,…that I can do; for my God, and His Son!.... Amen.


Your Friend,

Izzy!...

“CASTING,…MY,…CARES!”…


I’ll check within,…my own heart, first;
The obvious is clearly,…seen.
Those faults, I find,…in others;
Are really,…faults in me!...


My Faith today,…will not shrink;
Though I’m pressed,…by every foe.
I won’t tremble,…nor be made, to blink;
By any Earthly,…woe!...


Almighty, matchless,…Glorious-God;
Inhabiting,…Eternity.
I bow to You,…and praise, Your Son;
In awe that, He,…can live in me!...


Keep your witness,…bright and clear;
So that, this World,…may see and hear.
God’s Salvation,…far and near;
That others too,…may fear!...


If God is calling,…you, today;
Then trust His Son,…without delay.
Tomorrow, it will be,…too late;
If death occurs,…and seals your fate!...


God has given you,…His promise;
That He hears,…and answers, prayer.
He will heed,…your supplication;
If you cast on Him,…your cares!... Amen.

Izzy!...

“THIS,…LOVE!”...


(This Love), that sought me,…while still, in sin;
It went to Calvary,…(This Love), did Win.
It fills, and thrills,…and burns like, Fire;
Makes sense to have,…my flesh, retire!....


(This Love), constraining,…and constrained;
It’s all consuming,…and uncontained.
It flows, in billows,…deep and wide;
True Essence of the,…Crucified!....


(This Love), that none,…can comprehend;
Even Angels’-grasp,…it transcends.
Jesus, alone,…(This Love), possessed;
Its fullness, He,…made manifest.
Bringing me,…profound rest!....


(This Love), draws me,…to the sky;
To reign, in Heaven,…with Thee, go I.
Your Bride, I shall,…forever be;
Thy Glory, You will,…share with me.
As all Honors, I give,…to Thee!....

“BLESSED,…BE-YOUR,…NAME”….


I have a friend,…whose Faithful-Love;
Is more than, all the World,…to me.
Tis higher, than the heights,…above;
And deeper than,…the deepest sea!...


So old, so new; so strong,…so True.
Before the Earth, received its frame;
We Loved each other,…thru and thru.
(“BLESSED,…BE-YOUR,…NAME”)!….


Ours, is the Highest,…place above;
Adored by all,…the Children-of-Fame.
Yet, such is,…this Love;
Laying aside, our frowns,…becoming tame!....


We seek this Love,…at any cost;
Of Heavenly-Rank,…and Earthly-Fame.
Today I seek,…You, Sweet-Jesus.
(“BLESSED,…BE-YOUR,…NAME”)!….


It’s a lonely path,…we trod;
From every Soul,…apart.
Known only, to ourselves,…and His God;
Is all the grief,…that fills our Hearts!....


Yet, from,…this track;
We turn,…not back.
And as I lay, in want,…and shame;
You my Precious-Prince,…have found me.
(“BLESSED,…BE-YOUR,…NAME”)!….


Dawn, at last,…this Day-of-Dread;
We being desolate,…yet, undismayed.
With wearied frame,…and torn, ahead;
We’re never forsaken,…nor betrayed!....


Go up, with me,…to Blissful-Heights;
No dying here, in grief,…nor shame.
You beloved,…Saved me.
(“BLESSED,…BE-YOUR,…NAME”)!....


As we live, we sing,…with glee;
The wonders of this,…Matchless-Love.
At last, I rise,…to dwell;
In Brilliant-Homes,…from high-above!....


My Joy, lies in,…your Face, to see;
Bowing then,…with loud acclaim;
I’ll praise You,…my Precious-Prince.
(“BLESSED,…BE-YOUR,…NAME”)!….

Izzy!...

“GOD’S,…LOVE,…DOVES!”….


Meet, (The Faithful-Believers),…(“GOD’S-LOVE-DOVES”);
Like them,…there are,…no others.
Servants of our Lord,…and Saviour;
Truly, saints,…who fit like,…Gloves!....


We moderate,…our every mood;
(“GOD’S-LOVE-DOVES”),…offering, Spiritual-Food.
We feed our needs,…with caring comments;
God’s special people,…part of His, Battlement!....


(“GOD’S-LOVE-DOVES”),…once friends, always friends;
Supportive, caring,…and mostly loving.
Thank You, Father,…for these, Your Angels;
The Faithful-Believers,…whose souls I, commend!....


We lament, we laugh,...and Love;
Like the rest,…of God’s-Children, do.
Although the rest,…are extremely different;
We are brothers, and sisters,…(“GOD’S-LOVE-DOVES”)!...


I pray, you,…meet them someday;
As you’ll be,…blessed, the same.
With fine-folks,…like these;
We overcome,…all adversities!...


Thanking, the Almighty,…having crossed-roads;
We speak (Not),…with fork-tongues.
Loving,…God,…Endlessly;
These Faithful-Believers,…are Bar-None!....

Izzy!...

Now from the Altar,…of my heart;
May my warmest,…thanks arise.
Assist me Lord,…to offer-up;
My evening,…sacrifice!....


This day, You’re my,…Sun and shield;

Your care, in my weakness,…shows;
As Your Mercies,…are multiplied!....


Minutes make-up,…my day;
As You will come,…quickly one day.
Offering me,…Freedom;
Which You,…did gladly pay!....


New times,…new favors,…new Joys;
A new-song,…is required:
Not money,…nor toys.
I’m praising You,…as I should;
For this is,…(“MY-HEART’S,…DESIRE”)!... Amen.

“MORE-THAN,…I-CAN-SAY”….


Through times of affliction,…and uncertainties;
You have brought me,…to new-heights:
And now,…I’m being freed.
Through times of trials,…You, my Sweet-Jesus;
Have,…guided me.

You unravel,…with certainties!....


No longer,…am I tangled;
Now with this,…truest-of-Loves.
With this Love,…we lift each other;
To new heights,…most-high-above.
Dwelling with You,…my Precious-Prince;
All-things today,…indwelling anew.
Yes, all-things,…working together;
Now that I’ve,…got You!....


To them,…that Love, as we;
I call, according,…to this new-dawn-day.
To you, dear-reader,…and friends;
He gave new-beginnings,…and so, we are Free.

“T0-THOSE,…WHO-ARE,…IN-PAIN!”…


All relationships, carry with them,…the possibility; of pain and loss. Only, people who avoid Love,…can; avoid grief. The risk of relationships, stems from our uncertainty,…of; what our tomorrow, will hold. None of us, know,…what; will happen tomorrow. For, what is our life?... It is even, a vapor,…that; appears for a little time, and then vanishes,…away!...(see, James 3: 14 ).


Who of us (dear-reader and friends), is willing and most able,…to share; your comfort with others?... I know, all too well,…the bitter-sting; of a loved-ones’ absence. The comfort that Almighty-God, gives us in our sorrow,…and grief; isn’t for us, alone. It’s meant to be shared. And, so,…here I am, today; sharing my story, both of the joy of living,…and; the anguish of my loss, back in 2001,…when: my father passed-away!...


Viewing our own grief, as something that enables us,…to help others; is not a perspective, that comes quickly,…in the grief, process: nor, should it be, ever forced. Time, is one of the necessary,…components; of every part, of grieving. Empathy and compassion, are born of painful encounters,…with loss. When we see others, through the tears of our own,…grief; we begin to possess, a different perspective,…that; uniquely qualifies us, to minister compassionately,…(“TO-THOSE,…WHO-ARE,…IN-PAIN”)!... Amen.

“GIVERS-AND-TAKERS / PAY-THIS-FORWARD!”...


Success depends heavily, on how we approach our interactions,…with other people. Do we try to claim, as much value as we can,…or; contribute value, without worrying about what we receive,…in return?... The option which we choose,…has; a dramatic effect, on our success.


(“TAKERS”), get more than they,…give. They tend to tilt, everything in their own favor,…putting their own interests; ahead of others’ needs. They are usually self-promoters, making sure that they get plenty of credit,…for; their accomplished deeds. I do concede that, not all (“TAKERS”),…are cunningly vicious. Some, are just cautious and self-protective!...


Where do, (“GIVERS”),…end up; on the mountain of success?... I personally do believe,…that; (“GIVERS”), dominate the bottom and the top,…of: the success ladder. Givers, create an atmosphere of giving,…which; produces more givers. And, when people feel more grateful,…they; are more likely, to (“PAY-IT-FORWARD”)!...


Giving, is contagious!... Today, I am investing,…in; encouraging you, (dear reader and friends); in my network, to act more like,…(“GIVERS”)!... A business leader, who creates an environment of giving,…increases the odds; that others in his network, will follow his or her example,…and add value; to the work-life, of others,…not simply: match or take value!...


I’m convinced that, (“GIVERS”); make an impact, across multiple disciplines!... One reality of life, every human being must accept,…is that; our individual success, no matter what we undertake,…depends on: help from others. Someone, must be willing to give us,…the help; we need. The big question, at our door-step is,…”Will we remain, (TAKERS); or grow to become, relentless,…(GIVERS)”?...


We must help the weak, and always remember the words of our Lord,…Jesus-Christ!...(please see, Acts 20:35). This is phenomenal teaching, that this present World,…has real difficulty seeing; yet, so desperately needs. We must take-off, our rose-colored glasses,…and; see clearly that, we live in a wretched World!...


Our Apostle Paul, describes our World perfectly,…in; (please read, 2nd Timothy 3:1-5). Our Heavenly-Father and His Son, live by giving…(please read, 1st John 4:8,16). Who of you, will become,…”Great-Givers?”... Unfortunately, this has been regarded,…as; impractical idealism. Yet, every evil in today’s sick,…sick World; has been caused by, self-advancement at the cost of others,…vanity: by much coveting, lust and greed… What about you?... Are you willing, to step-out and start,…giving; to help others?... Oh’, how I pray,…so!...


Utopia, is (Not) an idealistic pipe-dream,…it’s coming; in our life-time, yes folks,…this present-generation: shall witness Divine-Justice, at its best!... Amen.

Izzy!...

“FOR-THESE,…I-PRAY,…THE-MOST!”...


I’m just a minor accomplice, I guess. Yet, it seems as though,…the rest of this wicked World; is after those who follow Christ-Jesus!.... “Why, persecute a mere messenger?”,…I ask you. All that I ever did wrong,…was a very long-time, ago. More than 15 years ago, I began to really change,…my old-ways. With closed eyes, I stop to think,…for a moment. I had always used, the same excuses,…for all of my prior; convictions!...


“Where, did you learn,…about; Jesus-of-Nazareth”?,…you questioned.


“At the (K.I.S.S.),…camp. There, we were all taught,…to; (Keep-It-Simple-Stupid)!... And, also we learned much,…by using; His basic-training manual, He (Jesus-of-Nazareth) called,…(The Bible)!... It was all, really quite simple,…only after; I began to truly apply myself, to His instructions”,…I answered.


In the beginning, He had me,...strike a match; (one, Jesus had named,…“my-personal-challenges”); secondly, He had me place it,…at the end; of this long and cumbersome fuse, (one, Jesus had called,…“my-trials-and-testing”): then, Jesus had me finally light,…this fuse!...


I ran, like Hell. Right into, His Father’s Saving-Grace!... I was luckier, than most others,…at this camp. My whole Life, didn’t end up,…blown-out-of-proportion. And His training, with time,…sort-of-became; absorbed into what today is, my devoted service,…to this Saviour!...


Many others, I’ve known,…somehow also know; that they too, could overcome and handle this hectic,…boot-camp. Oh’, if only they,…wouldn’t abandon; their only chance to really succeed. (“FOR-THESE,…I-PRAY,…THE-MOST”)!... Amen.

"SHOOTING-STARS,...IN-ALL,...DIRECTIONS"!....


Speak well, unto your audience,…like those, who have many; of the qualities, of an actor. Be a genius, at story-telling,…throwing yourself with gestures and mimicry; into your recitals!....


I have a passion, for gathering flowers. There are rare times, in the experience of everyone,…when things for the moment; seem entirely good, when Life halts on its burdened ways,…and when anxieties fade: and fears, are not!....


Such, are the hours with my Lord,...in my studies. My joy at being near Jesus, through His Word,…is so simple and uncluttered; that I respond as though, I were dwelling in the earliest ages,…of some ingenuous: yet undersigned, World!....


I live to read, with all the many words,…marching across the pages. Have you ever had your thoughts go,..."piggly-wiggly"; despite your hard work?... This happens to me, when I have other troubling issues,…in my Life; and on my mind!....


See yourself, as a citizen of this whole-wide-World,…and recognize that; there's a Supreme-Divinity, that shapes our ends,...rough-hew Him,...how we will. I urge you to give long hours, to your thoughts. Sometimes, they just glow quietly,…in our mind; yet, at other times,…they seem often: like Roman-Candles,…yes, like ("SHOOTING-STARS,...IN-ALL,...DIRECTIONS")!... Amen.

“FOLKS,…NOTHING’S,…EASY!”…


Nothing is easy, I walk here two miles round-trip,…living in Wisconsin, in the winter-season; makes the frequency of my visits to this gracious facility, (my local library, to use their computer-systems), scarce at times. But, our living God only ask that we do what we can,…especially when much; has been given to us, in turn,…much: is expected of us, from Him whom we ultimately,…serve!...(Jehovah and/or Yahweh, His Precious and Holy-Name).


It's all based on our individual hunger, you see after the loss of my dad in 2001,…the personal-pain was too much to bare; so I began filtering and seeking thru, all the existing garbage we all know exist,…within the various religions, of today; even including the divisions apparent, most apparent to me,…within our Christian brothers and sisters. Anyway, to make my story short,…thank you (dear-reader and friends); truly I'm blessed today, with our connection,…you've made my walk here; all-worth-while, this very instance. We often stick our necks out, on this guilletine,…we call, social-media; not ever really knowing, what the outcome of our efforts,…will be: often we (The Faithful-Believers) are constantly being chopped-off, by everyone,…from the very beginning, of our conversations!...


Many folks, don't give themselves the opportunity,…they're simply; not interested in muddying the waters, in questioning their spiritual leaders,…in risking the losing; of their present circle of friends, even in finding out that perhaps,…they; have been indeed duped with much, fallacies. It’s only after we have suffered much, and have lost even more,...do we all begin; to come to Jesus!...


He's not for those, who claim to have nothing broken in their lives. Although you and I both, know that at night,…at the end of their every day; when they lie down to sleep, there remains a dark void,…of answered questions; of doubts, a true lack of anything we could ever call,...inner-peace; it's to these, that I pray to reach-out to the most,…yes: together friends, we shall touch their inner-spirits!... Amen.



Thank you, for accepting me today,...so well; I pray that despite your personal circumstances, (be them good and/or bad); that you trust in your Creator and His plan, for you and for each one of us,...collectively; in due time, with no worries, no pressures,…you’ll find yourself; well on your way, to your first day,…yes, your very first step; into a different trodden path, one that will lead you,...to much: clarity...Amen.


Your Friend,
Izzy!...

Pray for me, as I shall,...for you!...

“PRIVATE,…AND,…PROFOUND”


As I studied the dark landscape, of my past,…never had I allowed room; for growth when it came to, my Spiritual senses. Never, had I ever detected,…my breath; becoming larger, just at the thought of an Everlasting existence,…possible: as, I do,…today!...


At 33 years old, (23 years ago),...although I didn’t quite know, the why; I began a turn, becoming clearly-closer to these new paths,…representing publicly: a new me. Inwardly, I was better at rolling with the punches,…not stopping, nor turning around,…to go back; to who, I used to be!...


And, it wasn’t like,…I was planning to actually venture; outside of myself. It was, all the contrary,…I’m speaking of; an inward change.


Yes, folks,…an earnest change; most (“PRIVATE,…AND,…PROFOUND”).


So, my prayers were closer to: “Lord, help me or, forgive me,…one; of the two!”. Quietly, Jesus began opening my heart,…to this yearning; which moved me.


Everyone but me, would sleep-soundly,…through this era; of mine. Learning to break-away, from tentative crowds,…was no light-duty. Was it, my imagination?... No one, near me,…in those days; seemed able to see anything, let alone,…what I was being given: to spiritually-see.


Yes, friends,…a new beginning; yet, in many ways,…still: my old self!...


The closer I got, to reaching 42 years of age,… the more; Jesus’ Light-of-Truth, appeared to be silhouetting,…my persona. I saw nothing else, at 42,…and guessed; it was still, several years away,…before I could truly: begin to blossom, within this newfound,…Faith!...

You see,…dear-reader and friend; I was born, a late bloomer. Perhaps, in hind-sight,…all, to my advantage; as I, today,…enjoy the fruits; of my Spiritual-Laboring. What has always looked, merely bright,…from a distance; today, has become more distinct,…in its colors. Such, has been,…the growth; of my understanding.


I seemed in pain, much like everyone else,…but; by working with my Lord’s, (Jesus),…Word; I have been, as if invigorated,…by: my trials and tests.


Who, I battle against the most,…even today; is the very same, who first came,…as a lying snake; then later, he approached me,…as a roaring lion; and, finally now,…this Dark-One, presents himself to me: even, as an Angel-of-Light!...


This adversary, wishes,…he could emit more; than his pathetic glow. He identifies himself best, with only those,…within; his inner-darken-circles!...


Today, (at 56 years, young),…I follow Jesus, and find relief: addressing Him, with Honors as I look,…in His Direction. Before, I could see no farther,…than the range; of my hellish-aura. Despite, my many serious (emotional) injuries,…I am most proud; of my new duties.


With God’s-Grace, and the Love of His Son,…I have proved; that I am still, in remarkable shape!...


No longer, am I agonizing,…but, rather; take this moment, to share with you and others,…His Plan: for your person. Guard against, neglecting your opportunity to turn,…to our Heavenly-Father; through His Son, our Lord and Saviour,…”Jesus-Christ!”….


Many, are Spiritually Dead. More, sit rocking,…or lay weeping!....


Most, have given-up,…looking for ways; to see anything, but a blackness,…so thick: it disorients them and distorts their deeds. Some, simply seem to run out-of- gas,…slowing, stopping; and stumbling on this very Rock, (our Rock)!...

Is there nothing, you can do (dear-reader and friends),…to help these tormented?... I pray,…so!...


Come-up, with an idea,…and; change your course. Stay on this elevator and reach the top-floor,…of my Prince’s-Palace. There, tip-toe past several of His Arch-Angels,…and their aides. Sit and talk to Jesus!... He will try to dictate, to you (The Faithful-Believers),…His Father’s; Words-of-Wisdom!....


I pray,…”That His message, is able to get through to you,…and that later; you be able, in turn,…to share: the same Theme and Tone, with others!”. Amen.



Your Friend,

Izzy!...
