They Say I Put You On A Pedestal…

You want a reason to believe in God? Imagine how many people have passed through this life. No one knows the true number, past the Indians, Romans, Egyptians, Mayans and Neanderthals – Countless! Not twin, triplet, quadruplet, or sextuplet. Yet each, no matter the number were made individually distinctive – None alike and no number ever having repeated itself.

Why make each of us different unless there was a number being tabulated for a specific reason or else we could all be cogs. God knows the exact hair on each persons head; of all those that have come and gone, still here presently and still yet to come. If He knows all that is to know, why wouldn’t anyone want to trust and believe in that kind of God is beyond me. He knows where I am and what I stand in need of Spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally and financially. If we know all this about God, then stand on the infiniteness of who He is – God Almighty. When you put God on the Holy Pedestal that is rightfully His; on His throne, but also in your heart, God will show you repeatedly that He is Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. I don’t apologize for wanting to give my God all the praise, glory and honor today for just who HE IS! I LOVE HIM! AMEN! THANK YOU HEAVENLY FATHER. MY SPIRIT IS FILLED. AMEN!

Real Talk Sessions…

Real Talk Not Just About Us

Have you taken an account of all the people who you grew up with or went to school with and realized that many of them are no longer here or have just went down a dark path?

Take some time today to just say Thank You Lord, because that surely could have been me… Thank him for the little things… Pray for those gone or lost… It’s not always just about us…

Real TalkThe Blueprint

Would you allow a contractor to build your house, without a Blueprint? Then why are we trying to live your lives, our way instead of following the Blueprint that the Lord has graciously given us called the Bible?

Just read it and follow the instructions for a successful life – Why do we have to make everything so darn hard? I often ask myself…

Off The Rack…

In my wardrobe I have some very old pieces, you probably can consider them vintage because I have them for well over 10 or 15 yrs because they still look good. Many I know may still have, but not wear your Carole Little, Dana Buchman, Karen Kane and so on.

The material and quality of the clothing has allowed it to stand up to wash, wear and tear. However, they also had the price tag to go along with that quality. God’s blessings also have a price tag and many of our blessings are still hanging up on the rack in heaven because we are not willing to pay the cost; even though anything that God has for us is worth waiting for, and worth the cost to obtain it.

One thing God won’t do is trick you to the counter to get a price check and then you decide whether or not you want to purchase the item; He is right up front and He tells you the cost when He shows you the vision and we then have to decide if this is something that we are willing to pay the price to obtain. Every blessing that I have received, it has definitely cost me something, it will cost you something; many times I was wondering as I was going through was it worth it and I have learned to know that indeed it was…

Is it worth it to you? God leaves that decision totally up to you, but hopefully, you have learned or will learn that anything that God has for you is worth it!

Leave that rack clean!

KEEP Pressing!

No Time Left On The Clock…

The goodness of God is what drew me and it is the exact thing that continues to draw me even though I may not be where I want to be right now BUT… I know that if HE has been good, is good and will do good again in my life; that is where I draw my strength from. Struggle is meant to drain you – that’s why it s called a struggle; if not it would be called easy. I have been all smiles today though nothing seems to be going the way that I want it to go or even how I would desire for it to be, but I have relegated myself to the fact that God made me a promise that HE would never leave nor forsake me, that HE would bring me to my EXPECTED END – not unexpected; and HE has NOT FAILED ME! Nor will HE. I may have gone through but one thing I know is that I always came out on the other side. There is no loss in God, only gain. We just have to remain in the game until the time clock says 0:00 (that means no time left on the clock) I am here today – There’s still time, so I am trusting God to keep HIS word to me.

O.V.E.R.R.A.T.E.D…

Where I am at sometimes, it does get painful, tiresome and even boring… Like the Israelites in the wilderness. They were tired, sick of eating the same manna day-in and day-out and wearing the same clothes for 40 yrs (Can somebody say boring?) But, where God has brought me from pales in comparison and I know that he has snatched me from the hands of death and losing my mind countless times and probably more times that I am not even aware of. Trust me there are plenty of graves back out there in the world and I would be cold and buried in my own. I know that God called me out of the world to serve a specific purpose and to do his will. The world is O.V.E.R.R.A.T.E.D because the life I have now is exactly what I was praying for while I was out in the world. The Israelites were praying for God to deliver them from their oppressors and once he did, they began to complain and murmur and that is why they were kept out of the Land of Promise. This December Lord willing I will be 40 yrs old and I will not have wandered in this life for 40 yrs and not get all of what God has promised me.

Much of it I already possess but God says to me that if I come up higher, he will bless me more than I could have ever thought or imaged. So Egypt you can keep your leeks, onions and quail and I will eat this manna of daily counting my blessings until I am residing in the home that I won t have to build and eat from the vineyards that I did not have to plant. God gave me a promise and I shall see it and the fruits of my labor in faith come to pass. IF YOU CAN GLEAN FROM THE THINGS THAT I WRITE, I AM GLAD TO HEAR IT BECAUSE MANY OF YOU MSG ME AND SPEAK A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT, BUT THIS IS ALSO MY WAY OF SPEAKING AND PRAISING THINGS INTO EXISTENCE AND TO HAVE A RECORD BEARING MY DECLARATION… U MAY NOT READ IT NOW, BUT WHEN I AM FULLY COME INTO THAT MANIFESTATION, U MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO ALWAYS REACH ME BUT U WILL BE ABLE TO COME TO MY PAGE AND FIND ENLIGHTENMENT.

Bad Blood…

The first thing to go in any relationship albeit business or personal is the communication when the relationship deteriorates and sours.

God is saying that He gives us His Word and by doing so, He is contractually obligated to honor it – In other word – Bound.  God Almighty is bound by one thing and ONE thing only – His Word.  The God who is perfect in all of His ways, has repented from an act of wrath against His creation because one of His creation asked Him to repent.

We have the power to our own deliverance.  The God that can do anything but fail will not go back on His word; however, if you do not know His word to speak back to Him, then your trump card is invalid.

“I’m not speaking to you or I’m not speaking to them”.  The vein of communication has become clogged with a plaque that has built up over time and it will kill you if left untreated; the stent needed to relieve the obstruction and the pressure that promotes healing is Christ Jesus.  He is the pathway between you and God that restores the blood flow of communication.

Have you ever noticed when you are elated and you have joy and peace that you are a tidbit chattier?  You are talkative and more apt to share your good news with a total stranger and anyone who would listen, but it’s even better when you share it with someone that shares in your Joy.

If you’re not careful, Life will catch your tongue. I’m not sure why it is that when we are hurting most, we shut down, we stop talking to everyone – including God.  And God is the one person who we should tell all of our business to.  He is the Word and never runs out of them to bless your life.  Pain rocking your body?  It’ll make you crawl up into a ball and remain in silence but Jesus said to say that, “By His stripes we are healed”.

When Job was attacked in every area of his life, He and his friends sat for seven days straight without uttering a mumbling word, and that entire time, he was left bound to his misery.  It’s not until he opened up and cleared the air with God that God began to also clear the air with him.  If you talk to God, no matter the pain, hurt, trouble or discomfort – He will speak back to you.

When He speaks with you, it’s because He heard you; and when He hears you, you know you will get an answer because the blood of Christ alone makes intercessions for you.

One thing that you don’t want to have between you and God is “Bad Blood”; a beef, bitterness or hostility; either with God or God with you.

A disability, a divorce, blindness or a bad day; are no excuse for you to not seek God.  If you do, then you are cursed and bound to a life of mundane drudgery; because only in God is where all the possibilities lie.

Everyone is equal in God’s sight because everyone gets the same opportunity to trust God and to believe.

He no longer accepts the blood sacrifices of bulls, goats, sheep, pigeons and turtle doves.

God is so awesome that He changes but still remains exactly the same.  He is the same God of both Moses and Joshua, however, with Moses He led by a rod, a form of corporal punishment and correction and Moses and the Children of Israel who were rebellious didn’t make it into the Promised Land, but Joshua was given only God’s Word as guidance, God’s assurance that “As He was with Moses, so shall He be with Him”. And with God’s Word alone both Joshua and the descendants of the Children of Israel entered into the Promised Land.

Moses saw God face-to-face and came-up short of His promise.  Joshua took the Word of God alone and entered into the Promised Land.  God’s Word says, “Jesus saith unto him, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed [are] they that have not seen, and [yet] have believed.”

My Spidey Senses Are Tingling, Literally!

David went out and fought Goliath because he knew that it wasn’t his day to die. He fought the giant in faith because he knew that he had only been anointed King, and hadn’t actually been crowned King of Israel (In other words, God’s Promise hadn’t fully manifested itself), therefore, he wouldn’t die on the battlefield that day and he could be confident that what he believed God for would have to come to pass. Sometimes all we have is our belief in what God told us and nothing else. Oftentimes there is nothing left for us to grasp a hold to other than God’s faithfulness – His Word. We trust in knowing that God is faithful; and that is what we cling to in order to keep holding on until He blesses us. It may only be a thin thread, nearly invisible as a spider’s web, but as with most spider’s web, we are walking in it long before we ever saw it appear. God gives us His Word – Literally, because He wants to be taken at His Word – Literally. You may have run out of every reason on why you should not give up and have every excuse on why not to keep pressing; you may very well have to exhaust your bag of tricks of coping before you do as Jacob and grab hold to the Lord until He blesses you!
