Just checking in


Blessed child, this is your Father checking in

How’s everything going within?

Is your life filled with stress?

Feeling everything’s in a mess

Sometimes, when the bills are high and your spirit’s low

You forget to my Holy Spirit you can go

He is your Counselor

He hears when to Him for guidance you must go

When you feel your life is tossed to and fro

If you feel worthless and all you can see is the lies you’ve been told

Pardon me if I may be so bold

Is your spirit feeling empty and cold?

You pray and pray and pray some more

You can’t see one open door

Your spiritual life has gone dry

You so want to laugh

All you can do is cry

I hear you as you make all those long distance calls to Me

You say I never answer though even long distance calls to Me are always free

Child, I am always here to answer all your calls

I even answer in your slips and falls

I’m with you as you fight the darkness, can’t see the light

I’m with you in all your times of fright

I shower My love upon the disabled and the abused

I hear the cries of all who feel they’ve been used

Could I just sit with you for a while?

Turn all those tears into a smile

I’m just checking in with you today

Hoping everything’s okay

Are you feeling so alone?

No one calls you on the phone

You feel no one loves you

That’s what the Enemy would have you believe

He doesn’t want you to laugh or sing any songs of joy

That’s his ploy

When you feel under attack just call upon My name

Tell the darkness to go away

Because the One always checking in with You always loves you

Child, don’t live your life in defeat

Take some time to pray at Jesus’ feet

Give Him all your hurt and your fear

So that today and into eternity

You will live a life of victory

Because the death of my Son upon that cold crude Cross

Freed you from sin’s tyranny

I pray all I’ve said you do see

Love others as I love you

Because the One checking in on you

To you will always be true



About Dr. Kevin Osborne B.A., B.Th., M.A., M.Div., Psy.D. Ph.D. and Th.D. Candidate

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. Two years ago I completed my Doctorate in Psychology (Psy.D.) through St. James the Elder University. On Sept. 26th 2020, I graduated with a Master of Divinity degree from Canadian Christian Theological Seminary. These journeys were started over 20 years ago. In 1997 I received a Bachelor of Theology degree from Canada Christian College & Graduate School. Between working and studying it took 13 years to finish it. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
