touch the flame God is a consuming fire let me explain

a radiant night couples run to the pier for a chance to splash but then

frozen from deep within there is a resistance to pull back from the magic of the moment

rest assured God is our closest companion when all hell breaks loose

there is a tendecy to run away from God but there's something deep within holding you back

his chemistry is quite a mystery but one must we willing to receive

let me share my testimony I was brought to Jesus in 79 Charlotte, North Carolina

it was in a gigantic swimming pool that I was baptized & received the Lord in my heart

was an altar boy until the tender age of 13 drifting into Charismatic fellowships very extreme

there was a tug at my heart to impart a way of escape from religion formed a union with God

although those many years would pass I had every reason to grasp what the bible said

The words of Christ penetrated my heart I read the gospel 5 times through

Each day I embark on a new demension with God he encompasses my very soul

Each day there's a brand new baby born & the night got his love to keep you warm

was hospitalized in 89 with a bout with mono took my health in a tale spin

When I got out I was ever determined to be the star in the play and so i did just that

Got hooked up with both drugs and alcohol in the 90's to self medicate my problems

Time and time again i fell to the mercy of the Lord with my problems

One night I had a dream I would become the most influential poet of our time

As I awoke the problems didn't go away but i had God to guide me through each difficulty


There is no other healer through any problem like Jesus he is my sole purpose

People try to mock him, dismiss him and even crucify him all over again but he still shines

He is a friend to the stranger that has no hope willing to cope desperately in the night

I share my testimony with love so that others may come to know Jesus in a personal way

God is not a man that he should lie nor the son of man that he should change his mind

Jesus he is the healer of my soul & wants everyone to come to know him as well

so today your life maybe a living hell but I got a real true testimony to tell

you maybe in a bar down for the count hurting inside with so much pain

Remember the thief comes to kill, steal & destroy but God has come to give you life

Today I seek to know God in a fresh way with a whole host of challenges that I'm being faced

Tell him your wants, needs and desires whisper his name when you are feeling down

There is no better friend then Jesus he is always there for you standing at your hearts door & knocking.
