God Loves You

As I was asking Father what to write today, this is what He said. “Tell them I love them. It doesn’t matter what they have done or haven’t done in their lives, I love them. I want them to come to me and be healed, saved and delivered from all the things that are oppressing them. If they would only believe and trust in Me, I will bring them close to Me and become their friend and Father. I will show them things they can’t even imagine and I will help them find their purpose and destiny. After all, I am their Creator, I know what each one needs. I know their name, I’ve seen their tears, and I’ve heard their cries, if only they would come to Me.” God Loves You! Read the rest of this entry »

Another Day In Court

The woman approached the ancient courtroom after having stood in line for a very long time. The line was still behind her as far as the eye could see. As she waited for her case to be heard, she was able to listen in on the one before her. The court was called to order and the man ahead of her was asked to stand before the Judge. The Judge called the meeting to order and then had the charges read. ANOTHER DAY IN COURT… Read the rest of this entry »

His Colorful Kingdom

I awakened this morning thinking about His wonderful Kingdom. His Kingdom is filled with many brilliant colors, yet a lot of people only see it as black and white. It would be like getting up every morning and putting on a pair of glasses that remove all color. We know we wouldn’t purposefully do that, but in a spiritual sense, many of us do. Why do we do this when there is so much more to see and experience in His Kingdom? HIS COLORFUL KINGDOM! Read the rest of this entry »

Greater Are Those

I had a vision this morning where I was standing in the courtroom of the Lord. Father was on His throne and Jesus was seated on His right. The enemy, the devil was on the other side of me and began making accusations against me. I thought it very interesting as to the timing of this vision being that it is on the morning of Good Friday. Greater Are Those! Read the rest of this entry »

A Father’s Love

What is the true love of our Heavenly Father really like? We hear so much about it from others who claim they know, but do they? Have they only read about His love in the scriptures but only read through their own eyes of understanding, hurts and pain? What about the hell, fire and brimstone preachers, do they really know or is their anger stemming from some unsettled fears and judgments in their own hearts? What is Father’s love really like? What is true justice? Do we really know? A Father’s Love!

I Wish – Art Print

I Wish – Art Print by Joseph James (Hartmann) – Finally, after several years of creating some art prints for some of my poems, we now have them available in 12×18 inch prints. Each print is printed on high quality metallic paper called Ice Gold Metallic with an 80# text weight. It is stunning and brilliant as the light touches the metal flakes and colors and makes them sparkle. This print is titled, “I Wish” and was written as I looked back over my past and then all of the experiences and changes that were necessary to help mold me into the person I am today. I Wish!
