Here and Now…

I believe that when we die, we take the spirit of whether we believe that we will be raised from the grave with us; and that by that same spirit we shall be resurrected.

Some choose to believe that there is no heaven, no place of paradise; and for them I believe that they will not see it, simply because that is what they have chosen to believe.

Okay… Now that is simple faith (either for or against/proponent or opponent).

So, if I must believe in order to receive the gift of everlasting life–then the same holds true for the blessings in this life.

We must believe wholeheartedly that we shall see the goodness of God manifested in the Here-and-Now in this life.

Cocky…

Peter was yet a sinner when He walked on the water; he hadn’t gotten “Cocky”. And Christ still allowed him to both witness and experience “Him”.

To know Christ.

Jesus knew that Peter was frightened of the winds and the waves, but the elements were clueless and none the wiser.

Our Lord cared only about how Peter trusted in Him.

God’s aware of past, present and future happenings; no matter how cocky we may become.

He’s concerned about how we trust in Him because we know that He already knows, and for Him to know, means that He’s already been there and waiting for us to show up – Thus showing Himself as God with many infallible truths, to each one of us.

Will & Grace…

If we would only accept His will; He would give us the grace to accept it.

Huh? It makes you scratch your head and say to oneself, “Self, that don’t make any sense, but makes all the sense in the world; and now that just don’t make sense.”

God is so simplistic, but we make it complicated.

Will & Grace are right there living in the same house, enjoying one another’s company, and are BEST friends. If only they could see that the perfect love for each of them, is each other.

Life will have us so confused that we think all we have is an alternative, no longer wanting to marry our Will to His Grace.

A sitcom life is limited, no real depth and only a few go into syndication. God will give us the life of a Motion Picture; extended in both size, time and talents.

Why settle for this world only, it’s nothing but a Golden Globe, when God says that He has a Man who shines brightly, engraved with our name inscribed on it. You’ve already been nominated, you but only need to accept your GREAT REWARD.

We can and continue to try again, to bring back a canceled show, or an episode from our past life.
Who wants to repeat the same life, week after week? Why settle?

Cyrano De Bergerac

Sometimes I can’t find the words to express to God how I’m feeling or what going through… In those times I employ the Cyrano De Bergerac tactic to express to God the love thats too big inside, to get out my normal measures; at times, even me the writer herself can run out of ammo.

I feel ugly, unattractive and unworthy of Him

However you need to get it out to God, do it! Just get it out.
The Bible isn’t your words; neither the song on a Gospel CD your lyrics, but you belt them out to God as though they were.
Plagiarism is found in the heart when it comes to how God receives our praise and worship of Him.

Lyrics “Helium”
I’m trying but I keep falling down
I cry out but nothing comes now
I’m giving my all
And I know peace will come
I never wanted to need someone

Yeah, I wanted to play tough
Thought I could do all this on my own
But even Superwoman
Sometimes needed Superman’s soul

Help me out of this hell
Your love lifts me up like helium
Your love lifts me up when I’m down down down
When I’ve hit the ground
You’re all I need

And if you let go
I’ll float towards the sun(Son)
I’m stronger ’cause you fill me up
But when the fear comes
And I drift towards the ground
I am blessed that you’re around

Yeah, I wanted to play tough
Thought I could do all this on my own
But even Superwoman
Sometimes needed Superman’s soul

Help me out of this hell
Your love lifts me up like helium
Your love lifts me up when I’m down down down
When I’ve hit the ground
You’re all I need
‘Cause your love lifts me up like helium
Your love lifts me up like helium

You lift me up and I am found
You lift me up before I hit the ground
You lift me up when I’m down down down
You lift me up before I hit the ground
You lift me up and I am found
You lift me up before I hit the ground
You lift me up when I’m down down down
You lift me up before I hit the ground

Your love lifts me up like helium
Your love lifts me up when I’m down down down
When I’ve hit the ground
You’re all I need
‘Cause your love lifts me up like helium
Your love lifts me up like helium
Your love lifts me up like helium
Your love lifts me up like helium

In A Nutshell…

He’s always there. You can’t get away from Him. It’s crazy when you really think about it. In all that empty time we think we are by ourselves; we really aren’t, we’re mulling things over within our spirit.

There He is Again.

When you’re focused and supposedly completely engaged, there He is offering His advice or better, I’m seeking His as I tumble it through my spirit.

There He goes again; airing dirty laundry that humbles us, reminding us that filthy rags are all that we are; without Christ to cleanse us.

There He goes again being Lord.

When you think to yourself this is one of the best moments of my life, and you know there’s a Thank You that’s not big enough to offer, but you try anyway because it consumes your spirit. Thank you’s turn into Praise.

There He goes again with His meddlesome self. What would’ve happened had He not?

There He goes again deserving All the credit!

We’ve all been in that place where this has got to be the worst day of my life! And then we find ourselves having those times come more frequently; and each time He was there, and we didn’t even ask. We were to heartbroken to speak. He said “Don’t worry, I don’t have to speak either, to Bless you. There’s no point showing off. I will always have a Word for your soul”.

Hear comes The Holy Spirit uttering and speaking on my behalf. I don’t know what He’s saying, but it appears to be working – “Keep talking Sir!”.

There He goes again – Showing Himself as God.

We say, “Mind your business”. And He retorts, “I am”.

There He goes, always being Mindful of us.

When you come to think about it – He’s always THERE.

He can’t run out; He’s inexhaustible. How many sermons preached from one book; all the pages from the old to the new, about one guy?

Sunday after Sunday. Day after day. Moment by moment, He just so happens to be there when you need Him?

How is He there for you, because He was there when you called Him; and there for everyone one else to?

That’s why He’s God if you want to finally settle the matter. And there you have it – In A Nutshell.

Feed Me Seymour!

Feed Me Seymour!

The purpose of a dream is to hope for something that you don’t currently possess or else, what’s the point of having a dream at all?
The purpose of having Faith is to see something impossible happen.
To see a Holy God who can’t look upon sin is impossible. But Christ came and shed His blood so that we could one day be forever with them both.
We want to do on earth as it is in heaven. In Heaven I’m going to do the impossible, and I will do the impossible here on earth as well.
I’m not wasting my dreams, or my faith on anything less.

You can continue to feed your dreams your blood, your sweat and your tears; and continue to be sucked dry, or you can allow the Blood of Christ to take care of the Seymour of your life that’s slowly but surely sucking the life out of you.
Feed your Faith, it will starve Seymour, and you will See More!

Picky Eaters…

Picky Eaters…

People treat God like His name “Mikey”. That He’s God and He hates everything.

We shove a lot of things in front of God and tell Him to eat it, but He won’t budge; Yes, He’s a bit persnickety when it comes to His diet.

God and Mikey do share one commonality, and that is they each only eat what he wants to eat.

You’d be surprised at how much God would eat, if you fed Him what He likes.

And for God, He only eats His Word. “He likes it, He really likes it!”

You keep asking God to feed you till you want no more, and He’s asking the same of you.

Praise from the fruit of your lips, not another’s. Reciprocity, can you argue with that or those terms?

You say to God, “I’m still hungry.”
God says He’s still hungry too – What else you got?
