We Will Declare!: Music Interlude

Praise the LORD, all you nations; extol Him, all you peoples, for great is His steadfast love toward us; the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. Hallelujah.” ~Psalm 117:1-2 From the rhythm to the words, this song of adoration and celebration of the Glory of the True and Living God, Yeshua Jesus, has blessed my soul since first I heard it. It turns my heart immediately to His joy and celebration, moving my lips to smile, my voice to raise and my hands to lift in worship, reminding me of how SWEET and WORTHY HE truly is! I pray that it will do the same for you! ~Poiema, Poetry In Motion

Hope In The Midst of Trouble: A Word and Song

But I will hope continually, And will praise You yet more and more. My mouth shall tell of Your righteousness And Your salvation all the day, For I do not know their limits. I will go in the strength of the Lord God; I will make mention of Your righteousness, of Yours only.” ~Psalm 71:14-16 nkjv (PSALM 71) I had the blessed privilege to read the above verses through a scripture reading plan for Hope, found though my Bible app. When I read the verses, the Light and Love of the Savior immediately flooded my heart and soul. Instantly, Our Heavenly Father began to show me great revelation concerning these few words of hope. If you take the time to read through all of Psalm 71, you will find that the author is going through a season of tribulation, YET he makes the decision that he is going to: Continue to keep his Hope in Father God Continue to sing His praises Continue to Focus on Him and Him alone Continue to remember that it …

Poetry in Motion: How God Sees His Children

I created a blog posting a while back touching on this subject and truth, but I can’t seem to remember what it was titled. Rats! In short, I argued that God sees us as His masterpieces, His precious works of art. And accepting that truth enables us to see ourselves in such a different light. In John 17:23 Yeshua Jesus prays to the Father that WE, His children would recognize and KNOW that God the Father loves us just as God the Father loves and sees Yeshua Jesus. God the Father sees His Son as Perfect, Blameless, Beloved, Righteous, Well Pleasing, Delighted In. WELCOME! And this is how He sees those of us who trust in Yeshua Jesus’ Beloved Name, not because of our works or grand efforts, lest any man should boast, (Ephesians 2:8-9) but because of our faith in the finish work of His Son for us on the Cross. This afternoon I was reminded of that message as I sat listening to a teaching by Pastor Joseph Prince. The scripture says: Ephesians 2:10 For …

What’s With All The Romance, Candice?!: My Humble Explanation For My Amorous Expressions

If you have been following my blog for a while, I am sure that you have noticed a slight shift in genre expression. My usual subtle ways of thrilling and suspense, woven in threads of science fiction and fantasy, have taken a sabbatical, yielding the floor to Romance.  For a long while now, I have had the desire to try my hand in genuine, Clean read romantic fiction. I had jotted down a plot line , a word or two in the past, but I had never quite allowed myself to fully submerge in the expression. I never allowed my self to really feel it. That is until recently and I have two fantastic bloggers to thank for that! First, I would like to thank Blonde Lucy, the creator of the blog, Blondewritemore, for hinting that I should add “electric fan” moments to one of my manuscripts. (Follow her blog. I assure you your joy levels will double with each post of hers you read.) Electric Fan Moment: To be immersed into a moment via literature where …

The Power of Songs of Praise

Hello all! I just wanted to take this moment to encourage you all with not just a song of worship, but with the powerful weapon that we have in worship through song, coming from our very lips and hearts, no matter if they are out of tune or not appreciated by those sitting next to us. Often times we allow men (to the delight of the enemy) to deter us from opening our mouths in song. What is the big deal with singing to our Heavenly Father? Well there is power in it that shifts the atmosphere. It is through song that our hearts are encouraged, that we remember what our God has done for us in the past, is presently doing and will do. It is through song that we find strength, and that the enemy is evicted from our atmosphere, for our God inhabits our praise. Ephesians 5:18-21 says, “…18And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, 19speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and …
