In The Beginning

In the beginning there were the heavens and earth. All things living in a harmonistic atomsphere . Here comes man, greedy, filled with hate. Unappreciative . Full of destruction. God made this place in which we live acceptable and adaptable to all living things. What gives man the right to destroy? This same philosophy and practice by man has lead to the extinction of whole civilizations. We need to love and honor our place in which we live both physically and spiritually. God is grace and mercy.

The Color Of Love

As we go through each day , the canvas of life presents us with challenge and change. Some find it extremely difficult to get through. Others embrace except and muddle through. With faith. With knowing God . Life's challenges can be lessened. 
I John 5:14

And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:

Valuables

As we March through life, you can't help but notice the categories of people. You have plenty of judges, critics, and hypocrites. However, on occasion there are those sacred moments when you have friends and or family who are proven to be so very meaningful. And so very valuable .  Life is what you make it. You can be humble, greatful and wise. Or you can live amongst the cruel and evil with a destiny uncertain. God gives us direction. It is up to us to follow it.

Judgement Day

There are many who have no idea who and what God is. There are those who have no faith at all in any of Gods stories or wonderment. Sadly that is ok . But when the day comes when your earthly body turns to dust,  and your spirit need be at rest. You will lose out on the end of life. Believing in God and knowing how we must go through Jesus Christ to gain access to the kingdom gives us a sense of peace. Knowing that are souls have a resting place. That our deaths are not in vain. We shall be judged in that day by God himself. Which begs the question, how do I conduct myself on earth to work towards that peace?

Appreciate What You Have

Many get praying to God wrong. You see God sees all. He wants us to recognize that. He wants us to acknowledge him. He wants us to have faith. Above all he wants us to be merciful and gracious for our blessings.  We are to learn from the lessons in life. Ask for discernment, wisdom and understanding. Repent of our sins. And leave guilt and shame at the cross. So when we pray it's all about thankfulness.

Greater Is He

There are times when our thoughts get the best of us. We retreat and succumb to doubt. Guilt. We tend to take on burdens bigger then we can handle. All the while forgetting who our father is. First of all Jesus suffered and died for all of our sins. Guilt and shame went with him as well. Secondly our God is a mighty God. We can leave all of our burdens with him. So when the enemy eases those thoughts in, simply reject them " devil get thee behind me, Jesus is my lord and savior" once that is done, have a one on one with God. Give your burdens to him. " cast your burdens on The Lord and he will sustain you"

The Fruit Of The Spirit

Less can sometimes be better. Less talk, more action. Less oppression more fruitfulness. Less hurt and pain more happiness. Less decrease more increase. God is not a God of confusion. When he is working in your life, you will know it. And your faith will become strong and prevelant.

I Am With You

It does get difficult at times to continue life with all the rough edges. There are so many who are ill equip to understand the wiles of the enemy.  The words of Jesus ring supreme " Ye have little faith". You see faith is the key. It is our faith that is always being challenged. We must remain vigilant. No matter the challenge. Keeping in mind that many before us have gone through insurmountable faith testing. And they passed.

My Prayer Is To You Oh Lord

There is nothing complicated , nor confusing when it comes to a one on one relationship with God. When you have it( a relationship with God) you know it. His grace and mercy stays ever present. Also the fiery darts are constant. One must stay in faith as hard as it is fighting the enemy, God will prevail.

Put God First Always

It is said, that our lives are writen all over our faces. That the "good life" shows and keeps us alive longer. Which is the complete opposite when life is full of stress and strain. When faced with the evils and wiles of the world, our bodies take on the negative. Sickness, emotional disfunction. If we had the coping skills and methods in place we would not have such chronic illness. In the bible you can see story after story of the rough and hard times on the people of the era. You do also see how the spiritual conviction was turned from paganism to the belief in God. Imagine the slow following. Imagine the anger and killing behind changing belief systems. Much like our modern day society. There is only one God. He has many names but there is only one.

The Bigger They Are

Life is as good as you make it. Nothing is easy. Many many things happen along the way, that may deter you from living comfortably. But when you have love unconditional in your daily life, things will not seem as difficult. Trust and believe in God. He will see you through.

The Mighty Strength Of Serving

When Gods work is noticeably in need of doing, not many step up to the plate. It is challenging work. When doing such work attacks from the enemy are on an increase. And are eminent. Stay in faith. God is there for you.

A Father To His Children

There is nothing that makes us more vulnerable to life's ills then the safety, and security of our children. When those issues are at stake, the pain is seering. We are humbled beyond conviction. We feel helpless when we cannot help. Oh what a heartfelt pain. Our children are the fruit of our loins. We would all love that fruit to be sweet and ripe. However things go wrong. Imagine God with his children. How many times did he have to show tough love? How many times did they make him cry? How many times did he teach them lessons? He never gave up, but he suffered over and over. He finally sent Jesus. Who lived a mans life. God could feel and sense what mankind had to endure. He was tempted, tormented and eventually killed. This sacred event saved wretches like us.

Knowing God Is A Win Win

So many argue , fuss, and fight the fact that god exist.  That having a spirit filled life is all good.  That yes Jesus was the living breathing messiah. And that by him dying our sins were forgiven.

Saved By Grace

It is very hard for some to understand who God is. Less alone what he is. And what he is capable of doing. Belief isn't very well excepted by quite a few. In fact evil and its root are prevalent in many, many areas. Despite all God is powerful. God is good. And for those who believe Gods light shines ever so bright.

We Win Some We Lose Some

There are many amongst us who have no idea how to lose with dignity. That winning is the only option no matter how it is attained ( winning).  It is all in how you play the game.

The Truth Is The Light

No matter how dark the past may have been. No matter how bleak the future may seem. There are slivers of hope. Shimmers of light.

Peaceful Pastime

There is nothing more miserable then being sick with pain and mental anguish. At some point you want peace.  God serves as our peace. We should embrace him always.

Listen To That Inner Voice

The thing to remember or note here: we did not have to have that sixth sense built into our human make  up. God could have left that part out, but he did not. Instinct, intuition, what ever you want to call it, has saved many a life. Yes, we should listen when God speaks.

Knock, Seek, Ask

Each one of us has a destiny that was planned long ago. Some of us have paths that are easy, some of us have a daily uphill battle. Some of us have been broken beyond repair. Some have bounced back from oblivion. As stated our steps have been ordered. Our destiny includes the acknowledgement of God. Having the wear withal to know that no matter what through Jesus we have an opportunity to save our retched souls.

Do Not Be Afraid To Give My Last

Kings 17:12-14 But she said, "As the LORD your God lives, I have no bread, only a handful of flour in the bowl and a little oil in the jar; and behold, I am gathering a few sticks that I may go in and prepare for me and my son, that we may eat it and die." Then Elijah said to her, "Do not fear; go, do as you have said, but make me a little bread cake from it first and bring it out to me, and afterward you may make one for yourself and for your son. For thus says the LORD God of Israel, 'The bowl of flour shall not be exhausted, nor shall the jar of oil be empty, until the day that the LORD sends rain on the face of the earth.

When you have faith. When you have God in your life. Never ever be afraid to give firstly. Secondly give unconditionally. Lastly giving your last is not the last at all. God will fill your basket overly and abundantly.

Shout For Joy

Psalm 100:5
For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
Many still question. Many do not believe at all. 
Mark 13:32-37

No One Knows That Day or Hour

“But concerning that day or that hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard, keep awake.For you do not know when the time will come. It is like a man going on a journey, when he leaves home and puts his servants in charge, each with his work, and commands the doorkeeper to stay awake.Therefore stay awake—for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or in the morning— lest he come suddenly and find you asleep. And what I say to you I say to all: Stay awake.”

There Is Nothing God Cannot Do

It is seen everyday, weather phenomenon. Or someone walking away from twisted mangled wrecks unscathed. Or someone near death with an ailment, who recovers completely. Yes, a mighty force is behind the above scenarios. I chose to call that force God.

Grateful Is All You Need To Be

Humble, grateful. These adjectives describe the precise keys to being close to God all day long. How dare we wonder through life entitled. We are not. Nothing says we have to awaken the next day. Nothing! Jesus is the truth and the light. Simple as that.

The Battle Is Not Ours

In today's battles the enemy hits you from all sides. However, when the playing field is riddled with land mines, you have to step up your game. The trick is not to let your mind accept that you have lost the battle or the war. God is there. Review your field. Prepare your armor. Keep your faith. Don't take it personal and get back out there. You have faith. And that is bigger then anything else. God never said it would be easy.

In The Spirit

It is truly amazing to find people who have no idea what a relationship with God is. Oh they fumble. They dabble, they follow the lead of someone or something that "seems"knowledgable in the right things to do. But the bottom line is, that you have to develope your very own relationship with God. You and only you can do that. No there isn't fanfare when you do. And no the divine angels don't come down . No pomp and circumstance takes place. It's  a uniqueness to you. It's subtle. You will know it when you feel it.

Fear Not For I Am With You

Before there was GPS there were maps. Yes, physical printed maps. You either were good at using them or like many had a co-pilot that helped navigate you through the quagmire. But technology has rescued us from that tedious task. We now hear a voice that gives us precise direction. God works the same way. There is a voice that gives us precise direction. We just have to listen.

Teach Me Your Way Lord

Jesus had a group of men and one woman that followed his teachings. You might categorize them as his apprentices. Their job was to watch. Stay in faith and eventually be teachers of men in Gods way. So many times did they question the task at hand, giving in to the smoke screen the devil always seemed to throw at them. This took place up until Jesus' death. However once alone after severely beating themselves up for losing faith at the final hour, they picked themselves up and went out into the world to do their jobs.
Psalm 86: 11-12

God Is

Existence. Believing in. Trusting. Bearing witness to his time as opposed to your time. Having faith in him.

The Winning Attitude

Let's imagine if Paul gave up his mission to spread the Gospel ( Good News).  He initially had challenges at the onset. He wasn't a large presence, in fact he was short, soft voice, blended in. No Dale Carnegy orator standards by any means. He was blinded, stoned, threw in prison many times. In fact he died in prison. But he was persistent in spreading Gods word. To pagans, to anyone who gave a listening ear. In fact he honed his craft well enough that some of the aristocrates of the day listened. He wrote excellent letters honoring God sending them out to the " churches" of the day. So yes he had a winning attitude and the other nice thing is, he paid it forward by teaching his apprentices to carry on spreading that same " good news"
Romans 11: 18-20
18do not be arrogant toward the branches; but if you are arrogant, remember that it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you. 19You will say then, "Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in." 20Quite right, they were broken off for their unbelief, but you stand by your faith. Do not be conceited, but fear;…

The Fruit Of The Spirit

It is not what one says that makes the biggest impression. It is what one does that bears witness. Walking with faith will show if you are a genuine child of God. Not a word has to be said. Gods work is never hidden. It shows.
Matthew 5:16. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
