This came Oct 23rd 1998 as a song of the Lord, I revised it in 2009 adding a verse and changing the melody.
Scripture reference: 1 Corinthians 16:22
“Maranatha means Our Lord Comes”
Verse—When i was young they told me Jesus would come, Now that I’m older i understand.
He came to me one autumn night and touched my eyes and gave me sight.
Maranatha our Lord comes, Maranatha He appears, Maranatha He now rules.
Verse-Those that look for Him shall He appear,those that love Him they shall behold Him, lift up your eyes unto Him.
Verse–When you ask him you shall receive, when you seek him you shall find Him, and when you knock the door shall be opened.

Women are meant to be valued, loved and appreciated just look at Jesus he is a lifter of women, while many religion’s tear them down and think of them as only the property of the man even in some christian churches they forbid them to be in the ministry or preach holding them down to ancient barbaric cultures that are not relevant either to life or to freedom.
10 Kinds of Women
1—The Soccer Mom: She is driven, she is typically into material things and into sports even if she doesn’t understand them, she likes the social life but rarely has the time for it, she raises kids works on a job in some cases has very little time for herself or spouse.
The problem is she has been programmed to think a certain way from her childhood through the school, the media, movies and her favorite programs on TV she can either be sweet and helpful or she can be selfish discontented and hard to get along with.
2—Women who seek to gain power over others by seduction, sex appeal and deception, they are called by some gold diggers they also find that it is easy to compromise values for money because they lack self motivation and personal responsibility they have placed outward vanity over true character.
3— Those who never grow up they are called by some cougars older women who seeks the younger man because it helps them feel more youthful and to have fun sexually or just younger companionship’s that still have some life, this many times is because they have had their emotional growth stunted either by sexual physical or mental abuse either from a previous spouse, parent or both.
4— The party girl she is tough she party’s hard works hard has a lot of good common sense except in some cases when it come to sex with the wrong ones or when she has too much to drink and makes bad decisions she love her country can be opinionated and would fight for what is right, most can’t stand religion they love their own they know God loves them sometimes they will be called a redneck party girl but not always the case.
5—Career minded independent woman she is too busy to have a family unless they are also independent she will spends hours in the office she micro manages relationships she needs to be in control she is performance driven, would love to settle down and have an intimate relationship but has trouble finding one that really works because her career is first.
6—The one who is co-dependent, jealous, clingy, she can easily become a nag especially when she feels anxious or insecure about her relationship she looks for someone else to hold on to and give her self esteem it is hard for her to ever really enjoy a healthy relationship because she self sabotages.
7—Women who are compassionate, humanitarian type, mercy oriented many live their lives hoping for the right companion to come along but often just live a single life or one with no children because they have a low tolerance for them, they may be artistic gifted people and they can be wonderful as long as they remain a free spirit if not they will feel trapped and it can turn to deep discontentment and depression.
8—Those who are born to be a wife and a mother starting from their baby dolls as a child they have cultivated the desire to nurture others they find contentment in serving their family they love and respect their husband’s and have no real desire to be seen for themselves as long as they know their husband loves them and the children honor them they have dignity, self worth and value far above material possessions.
9— The woman who loves God is a good mother works hard she desires to be loved for just who she is, life is hard for her, but she presses through she has went through some of if not all of the previous roles I mentioned, and has emerged to be a better person she is a pillar and a leader in waiting for the right situation and the right relationship.
10—The woman who hates men and believes that all men are the same they have been abused by men cheated on by men misunderstood and put down by men now they have become bitter and gender prejudice snake bitten in life, they will often become activist or seek ways to pay men back for what has happened to them.

“Surpassing what is common or usual; Exceptional:”
S—–Spiritually Compatible—-Fellowship and true intimacy is the craving of the soul, it comes from understanding and knowing that you are spiritually moving in the same direction.
P—–Physically Compatible—–You are not just spiritual beings there should be the physical attraction as well, and the desire to be presentable to the other.
E—–Educationally Compatible——Education many times determines our outlook on life if it will be a life of excellence or mediocrity.
C—–Communication and Caring—–Communication is more than just talking, it is coming to really know the other person, just as well as we know ourselves.
Communications is to learn how to speak the language of expressions, reasoning, feelings, culture and the principles of the other.
I——Identity——It is important that each person have their own identity this will keep us or them from becoming co-dependent, obsessive, or abusive.
A—–Affection—-1 : A moderate feeling or emotion 2 : tender attachment : passion, fondness: Affection— The breath of romance.
L——Love——-You need to really be in Love there needs to be the bonding and vulnerability that comes from being in Love this means serving, caring, respecting, believing in, and enjoying one another.
“When these come together it is called good chemistry and they can come together for married couples when the spouse becomes more than just the one they married they become that SPECIAL one.”

“WE HAVE MANY FRIENDS THAT REMAIN IN RELIGIOUS CONFUSION OR SPIRiTUAL BABYLON, THEY ARE IN LOW PLACES. WE ALSO HAVE THOSE WHO HAVE ASCENDED INTO SPIRITUAL ZION “THE HEIGHTS OF TRUE WORSHIP AND LIBERTY”, THEY ARE IN HIGH PLACES. THIS REWRITE IS IN REFERENCE TO THE DESTRUCTION OF FALLEN BABYLON BY THOSE WHO WILL DARE GO INTO THE SYSTEM OF CONFUSION AND BRING TRUTH THAT LIBERATES MEN FROM DEAD WORKS OF RELIGION .”
FRIENDS IN LOW PLACES ( re-write )
1. Blame it all on my roots, I showed up in truth,
and ruined your religious affair.
The first one to know, the first one to show,
I was the last one you thought you’d see there.
2. And I saw the surprise and the fear and the lies
when I took away all their shame.
I praised and, said babylon, “you are now through,
and the church shall forever reign.”
‘Cause I got friends in low places,
where the spirit moves and the word chases
their blues away, and they will be okay.
And I’m not big on religious faces, think I’ll slip on down to the oasis,
Am -D G G – Am – D – G
oh, I’ve got friends in low places.
3. Well I got a new song, I just don’t belong,
but then, I’ve been here before.
Everything’s all right, I’ll just stay in the light,
and I’ll show them all to the door.
G Dm Am C
4. Hey I didn’t mean to stand up and sing, but she just has an hour and then
She will be in hell and her smoke shall forever ascend.
(E) Am C
When I walked through the door the way i always did before, but this time
E C Am
There was no one else around when I heard another sound saying:
G D D7 G C D
Arise… Go from this place Arise Take hold of this new day Arise…
Go in the spirit of grace
