Call on Your Power

It is my belief that deep within each of us is a Power to be used for the good of all as indicated by the following people including me.

You are never given a wish without also being given the Power to make it come true. Richard Bach

Never measure God’s unlimited Power by your limited expectations. Our Daily Bread 2010

Call on the Power inherent in you…(My poem, All Things are Possible)

The beginning of Power is consciously opening our minds to God and being receptive to his presence, his spirit, his voice and his will. Charles L. Allen

For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of Power and love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7

And then there is the poem I wrote in 1998:


If you would be more powerful

release your ego

let it soar

let the roar of you subside,

look inside,

see the power of you


to empower others.


Our Power is not to be mistaken for the power wielded by those who use and abuse it because they feel basically powerless in their own right. That power is actually a weakness.

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty Power. Ephesians 6:10


Soul vs Ego – Round Two

I’m not sure of the winner of this round as both soul and ego had a hand in this post.

Here is a snippet from an email I received yesterday from a good friend. The message touched my soul, but because it pertains to my book, MY PRECIOUS LIFE, it also touches my ego.

….I just finished your fabulous book. I should have been getting ready to go out but couldn’t put the book down. I won’t get into how much it touched my life but it made me laugh and cry and truly closer to God. I love you for your courage to write and share it with all of us and am blessed to have you for my friend….

See my dilemma? Soul? Ego? You be the referee. I’m down for the count!

Soul vs Ego

This morning my soul and ego came to loggerheads about a subject I was ready to post.

My soul won and I trashed the post.

Sometimes happiness is simply booting ego to the curb once in awhile.

Have a nice day!   🙂

Poetically Speaking

There seems to be a rash of poetry crashing my psyche these days. It could be a good thing for those of us who like poetry, and not so good for those who don’t. Having said that, I have learned a lot from poems. Especially Rudyard Kipling’s IF — “If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, and blaming it on you…” (very important) or DAFFODILS by William Wordsworth — ” I wandered lonely as a cloud that floats on high o’er vales and hills…” I never pictured William as a lonely fellow (very comforting). How about “When I have fears that I may cease to be before my pen has glean’d my teeming brain…”–John Keats. (Is that fuelling my furious blogging these days?) And then there’s The Power of You, penned in 1998 by yours truly.


If you would be more powerful,

release your ego,

let it soar!

Let the roar of you subside,

look inside,

see the power of you

released to empower others

not destroy them

with ego.


Now that I’m closing in on blog one hundred, I have to rethink whether to stop. Faithful followers are asking me to “keep on  blogging”, so with that in mind, it will depend if the blogging muses will still be forthcoming with words of wisdom (or not). Tomorrow is another day–time enough for decision making.
