These are my latest Facebook post for the past week just some things to think about or encourage .








____________________________________________________________
GRACE IS FOR THE TIMES YOU CAN NOT WALK ON YOUR OWN AND NEED TO BE CARRIED BY THE LORD ,IT IS NEVER TO BE USED AS AN EXCUSE. GRACE IS EXTENDED WHEN WE ARE EXERCISING OUR FAITH AND STRIVING WITH EVERYTHING WE HAVE AND STILL COME UP SHORT THAT'S WHEN GRACE SHOWS UP
____________________________________________________________

Staying where you are is completely and totally unexceptionable . You should be ever evolving and changing for that higher calling in Christ Jesus . Never stagnant but going from glory to glory to glory. Never satisfied with being comfortable. Because perfection is a lifetime goal not a part time goal.
____________________________________________________________

In the spirit the truth is always discovered but not always embraced. When embraced and grasped it overtakes darkness and denial .When this occurs freedom is found chains are broken and newness in Christ is found
____________________________________________________________
Perfect love is found in obedience you can never experience true change and renewal if you are not being obedient. With out obedience to the word of God there can be no change that is keeping .only when you begin to walk and live in obedience will you see breakthrough and strongholds broken. Will you obey everything all at once? Surely not but each step you do take in obedience the closer you will be to what God has planned for your life. Want change? Than take that step towards obedience in Christ not in self and begin to experience God’s perfect love because after it is all said and done it was Jesus’s obedience that ultimately set us free.
____________________________________________________________
Do not run from the truth even tho it may be painful because the truth never stops being the truth only our view of it changes . Instead run toward the truth in the end you will find out it still is the truth any how !!
____________________________________________________________

God can take even the darkest of stories and shine a light on it if you let him
____________________________________________________________
May the name of Jesus be high and lifted up above everything this day, may we draw near to you so that you might draw near to us . Draw us closer to you O lord and teach us how we should live, Give us eyes to see your will for our lives and in all our ways let us acknowledge you so that you may direct our path In Jesus mighty name AMEN

Salvation is free to receive but the work involved will cost your life

______________________________________________________________
If the foundation of your marriage is not Built on Christ it will crack and crumble and eventually you will have to demolish

_______________________________________________________________

The world is designed to drain you mentally, physically, spiritually, & financially
so what are you doing to stay filled ?

________________________________________________________________

There is olnly one realm you can live in and that is in the realm of God
If you are not than you are living in the realm of self and lets face it we all
know where that will end up


_________________________________________________________________

It is easy to justify and comprise when your High, because your sense of reality is skewed bad judgment calls will follow and inevitably destruction follows .

_________________________________________________________________
If you keep doing what you are doing you will keep getting what you are getting

Why do you go to war all by yourself ? You are grossly outnumbered . There are people all around you fighting the same war. Stop fighting by yourself , Ask For HELP !!

_________________________________________________________________
In the Valley is where you will grow the most because you will find yourself looking up .
_________________________________________________________________
With so many deceiving advertisments In this World
ask yourself.... ARE YOU ONE OF THEM ?
Are you REPRESENTING Christ to the WORLD
_________________________________________________________________
Let the light of Jesus shine on someone's darkness . Let Love radiate from you
piercing the stoney heart. Release & unleash the Spirit of God for all to see.
Someone needs to see the hope that dwells in you.
Hope is alive in You so share it , spread it.
Let the light of Jesus shine on some ones darkness
____________________________________________________________
YOU ARE NOT YOUR OWN YOU BELONG TO THE MOST HIGH GOD THE CREATOR OF ALL THE UNIVERSE.
DO NOT TRY TO INTELLECTUALLY TRY TO FIGURE IT OUT JUST KNOW IN YOUR SPIRIT THAT YOU WHERE MADE FOR SO MUCH MORE THAN YOU COULD EVER IMAGINE . THE VERY SPIRIT THAT GAVE CHRIST LIFE DWELLS WITHING YOU . HIT YOUR KNEES AND SEEK HIM IN YOUR SPIRIT AND YOU WILL FIND HIM THERE.
FIND HIM NOT INTELLECTUALLY BUT IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH

If you do not know what is going on in your life ,deceit is probably the culprit.
For you do not know you are being deceived at the time it is happening
____________________________________________________________
Do not practice deceit but return to truth and embrace it , live in it .
If you do deceit will fade away
____________________________________________________________

Do not return to your old ways for you will quickly figure out why you left them in the first place. Everything is still the same nothing has changed of the nature you left behind for truth. If you find yourself in this place again , Humble yourself & repent For he alone will restore you back to Your NEW Nature God eagerly awaits your return

____________________________________________________________

If you ever leave & turn from the cross & it's protection
The "GOOD NEWS" is and says you may RETURN to it ANYTIME
YOU CHOOSE . God is patient and slow to anger in fact he longs for your return

____________________________________________________________
Do not seek his face in the valley only. But seek his face on the mountain top as well .
You will need him whether on the mountain or in the valley
____________________________________________________________

Just about everyone wants to get better
but very few are Willing to put in the WORK that it takes to be better

____________________________________________________________

If you belong to God He Will come for you sooner or later . There is nowhere to hide from him. You can not run from God
Stop running away from God and run Towards him And be Restored
____________________________________________________________
We are sheep among wolves .
How do you expect to make it without wisdom,knowledge & the protection of God?It is simple you will not make it .
You will be devoured.
____________________________________________________________

Self Pity is to deny God & the Power & Authority
He Freely gave you
____________________________________________________________

Do not run from your addictions run toward them and meet them head on
because if you do not handle your addictions
your addictions will handle you

____________________________________________________________
When trapped by addiction the definition becomes " NO HOPE"
That is why we need Jesus because IN CHRIST there is always HOPE & Deliverance

____________________________________________________________
God will do amazing things in your life & set up divine appointments with people
and places , so you may be able to gain a greater understanding of not only him but yourself also. He loves you that much . The question is are you listening ?
____________________________________________________________

Forgiveness is giving up the hope that the past could’ve been any different. So you don’t hold on to wishing that you’d had a different kind of brother, a different kind of mother, a different kind of family. You let that go and you move forward with the grace that God has given you. From this day on, forgiveness is giving up the hope that the past could’ve been any different.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

____________________________________________________________

There is not a specific group or color
racism is offensive to Anyone & everyone in one form or another
In it's grip it can divide , If conquered separately
But conquered TOGETHER there is True Equality
Because everyone is UNITED & on EQUAL ground , not INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS
but RIGHTS as a WHOLE
RIGHTS FOR ALL not rights DIVIDED not SEPARATELY
BUT TOGETHER NOT INDIVIDUALIZED ,BUT AS ONE
racism can be conquered TOGETHER not INDIVIDUALIZED because
INDIVIDUALIZATION PROMOTES RACISM
____________________________________________________________
When we try to avoid suffering by sinning we end up sinning ourselves into suffering.

"Lecrae"
____________________________________________________________

Life will not wait for you to be ready
Life happens whether you are ready for it or not ,so you need to be prepared as much as possible. If you are a parent teach your children, prepare them so when life does happen they will be ready for it !!

God might not change your situation or circumstance
but what he can do is
change you through your situations and circumstances
____________________________________________________________

Get pregnant by reading the word of God and birth FAITH
____________________________________________________________

It absolutely astounds me how the wise can do so much with very little or next to nothing
while the unwise can do nothing with almost everything

____________________________________________________________

We are all born with a disease called sin and there is but ONE cure not even
doctors,Buddha, Mohamed,self help books, not even religion can cure this disease none of these can relieve the symptoms or control the massive amounts of pain and death sin causes in your our lives. The ONE & and only cure is JESUS CHRIST
____________________________________________________________

GOD takes lost baggage and claims it as his own
he gives life where death is found
he gives when he should take
he loves when he should reject
God can take what was broken & pieces it back together
He offers good in return for bad
But most of all he loves us to death

____________________________________________________________

Suffering is one of our most fragile states to be in
For temptation is great while suffering
In the midst of suffering temptation wants to exploit you ,Even to deny God
But fall not into the enemies plan , for it is God who not only delivers from suffering
he brings about Wisdom, Strength , & Obedience through suffering
Through suffering purification and refinement occurs
____________________________________________________________

We are all but ripples that come and go
Your ripple can stretch out and change a whole generation
So be careful how your ripples will effect anther's life
____________________________________________________________

Your creation shows your glory
Your creation shouts & screams of your presence
Your creations on all the earth tells of your story
Look & behold all that he has made in awe & wonder
Doubt no longer
His creation is perfect and majestic
From the stars above to the flow of lava below
Behold God almighty who declares his creation
Look through the window of his creation & catch a glipse of his unmatched wisdom
Everything perfect in it's place
The Lord of Glory is found in all he has made
____________________________________________________________

Insider trading is frowned upon but i thought you should know
Do not put your stock in worldliness
Although it appears to be a great investment
It's stock will soon plummet into the depths of hell
Now would be a great time to dump worldliness
And put ALL of your Stock into JESUS and ride it
all the way to Heaven
____________________________________________________________

Faith can see in the dark
Faith can see when things get to hard
With Faith belief comes alive and hope is born
With Faith death comes to life
Faith says yes when your mind says no
Faith can see what you can not
so get some
____________________________________________________________

Raised & indoctrinated with false truth
of the streets & all that forms young minds thinking this is the only way to live
Lost with a worldly system with no expectation of self worth
Molded by the hustle and it's deceitful temptations of a better life.
In the unseen reality of passing out poison to our people
Keeping in step with what was passed down to you.
Caught in the cycle of belief in this way of lie as if it is the only way
Do not believe the lie Do not live this life
Break free from this belief there is a a better way
For Jesus is the TRUTH
Jesus is the WAY & the LIFE
so find him and stop living in a world that would have you believe otherwise
after all it is a choice that some do not even know they have
____________________________________________________________

What ever your mountain is in your life
Why do you insist on climbing it ?
DID you not know you have the power & authority to Move the mountain
Stop climbing your mountains and use the power & authority given to you
MOUNTAIN MOVE

FALLEN BUT NOT FORGOTTEN (soldiers)

Wind blowing on your face and the feeling of sunshine
The touch from your family and the embrace of your son or daughter
Mothers kiss and the tender heart she always showed
To the fallen soldiers who will never experience these
taken for granted things so we can. The salute seems not enough for all you have given . The very life of love the ultimate sacrifice
From above is where you watch our freedoms
The gift that keeps on giving
The speeches we give , the religion we express ,to the very right to vote
So for this and so much more
More than words that can be uttered
To the fallen soldiers young and old who now watch from above
Thanks is not enough , gratitude is not enough but what we can do is
Enjoy what we have , THE FREEDOM THAT YOU GAVE US ALL.
____________________________________________________________


Dealing with the Truth may cause suffering
but far less suffering than denying it

____________________________________________________________

An addict is Never Free from addiction
they just realize they are sober for today
____________________________________________________________

Reality is skewed
while Trapped & Entangled by addiction
You will find Justification and Compromise working together
to keep you right where you are

____________________________________________________________

The pain that know one else can see inside you
is exactly what God wants to set you free from.
The only thing keeping him from helping you
is you

____________________________________________________________


God is so good

____________________________________________________________

Reality & Truth almost the same thing
Some are not ready to face the real
reality of their lives or the truth
Denial is so much more comfortable
but in Reality it is not comfortable at all
... in fact I would go as far to say
it is indeed misery
Denying reality or truth only prolongs suffering instead of dealing with truth & reality
suffering through and overcoming is better than just suffering
In our addictions denial is the place we live and will continue to live
Until we Face Reality & Truth with out these 2 working together
this is where we will stay ,trapped by denial trapped in our addiction
Realize this and embrace this truth because in reality there is truth in what I am saying

____________________________________________________________

stay on your toes the enemy is lurking and waiting and seeking whom he may devour

____________________________________________________________

Your great love calls me out
Your love tears me down only to build me up again
Your love who can speak of?
For your love calls me to be conformed
I love to speak of your great name
For your love has done great and mighty things in my life
The beauty of it all is that it was not for my sake
but it was your love so all could see your splendor
Let your love call up in me faith unmovable
Your love is calling me out & I love it
____________________________________________________________

Once held captive to Fear & Shame
Now raised from the grave
Liberated and freed from the bondage of sin
Grace found me & rescued me
Dead bones came alive when i met you
You dwell in me
You give life to me
Your mercies are new each day
You saved me
In you i can be found
Apart from you
LOST

____________________________________________________________

Admitting that you are not there
is the first step in getting there
you have to admit you are not where you want to be
to get to where you
need to be.

____________________________________________________________

Never forget your past
the moment you allow this to happen
You forget what God has done for you
and at this point you will find
yourself on your own

____________________________________________________________

I was lost when you found me
wandering in the land of shame,guilt,hurt and self pity
wandering for years in the valley of sin
Than i called out to you and you swiftly rescued me
just as you said you would
Now i am a son of the most high KING
what a difference a prayer makes

____________________________________________________________

I know it sounds cute and sweet and all
that God stands at the door knocking
and the handle is on the inside
but the truth is if he wants in
he'll knock the dam door down.
The choice to obey is ultimately yours
but if he wants in he is coming in


meaning
i was just saying God is God and if he wants you he will come for you .you can ignore him but he will come for you

____________________________________________________________

You can have all the world and yet have nothing
and yet if you have Christ you have everything you will
ever need !!

____________________________________________________________

If you have no real plans to change
Do not go around giving off the impression that you are going to change
Not only are you deceiving others you are deceiving
YOURSELF

____________________________________________________________

It is my weakness that allows me to stand before you & tell you how God delivered me from sexual lust & addiction to pornography
It is because of my weakness i can stand before you & tell you God delivered me from drug & alcohol addiction. In my weakness God's power is made perfect
It is because of my weakness i can stand before you & tell you about
How God saved me from selling drugs & living the fast & sinful life of a drug dealer
to a Blessed Family man.God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are,so that no one may boast before him .& God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong
For when I am weak, then I am strong

____________________________________________________________


Face your Fears
or they will continue to
Face YOU !!

____________________________________________________________

When it comes to manipulation
the one you need to worry about the most is
none other than YOURSELF

___________________________________________________________


Suppressing Sin leads to
casualness
which leads to
comfortableness
which leads to
Bondage and strong holds
in your life
____________________________________________________________

Sin whispers come play with me
Sin whispers just taste me
Sin whispers just try me one time
Sin is not a toy you can just pick up and put down
when you pick sin up it DOES NOT WANT TO PUT YOU DOWN
____________________________________________________________


Sin DISGUISES itself as fun
& after the party is over leaves you
to clean up the mess all buy yourself
____________________________________________________________

The Spark of sin has to be extinguished immediately
If ignored it will become a Raging fire consuming you
and everything in it's path
growing to uncontrollable levels

____________________________________________________________

God we give thanks to you for your mercy & praise for your love for us .
I stand asking for grace to stretch out to those who do not know you
I stand in intercession for those who are lost and are searching to be found , let them be found in you Lord .
I ask that your grace abound .
Those who do not know you do not realize their need for a savior because they do not reconize sin
so i ask that you would reveal through your grace their sin,
so that they may see the need for the one you sent to atone for not only their own sin but the sin of the world.
I ask this day for Grace and Mercy to be shown to the lost for veils to be lifted from the eyes of those who you have veiled . Show them your Glory give them site to see and ears to hear what the spirit of the Lord has to say to them. In Jesus Name AMEN

____________________________________________________________

Do not go searching and seeking truth only to consider it
But search & seek the truth with the intent to apply it

____________________________________________________________

What you need to do can not be done without the
Holy Spirit
For apart from it I can do nothing
&
going nowhere

____________________________________________________________

Take the gospel Of Christ
to the next level NOW
not later
because later
may NEVER
come

____________________________________________________________

God is willing and able to do great and mighty things in your life
the only question is
are you willing to let him have
access ?

____________________________________________________________

If you ever think that you have "arrived"
your destination is hell bound


____________________________________________________________

Why are you spending all your time trying to fix others
When you are in pieces ?

____________________________________________________________

There is Power in only ONE NAME
& lets be perfectly clear
IT IS NOT YOUR OWN !!

____________________________________________________________

The cross that you are bearing
Is to heavy for you to carry all by
yourself.

____________________________________________________________

You might look in the mirror & not like what you see
What you have become
Your identity that you have found
IF you ever find your identity in Christ
You will LOVE who he created you to be who he says you are
He will recreate your image and when you look in the mirror this time around
You will see what he see's
That you are beautifully & wonderfully made
Hand sculpted
Made in his image

____________________________________________________________

Who are you trying to convince that sin is not sin ?
Yourself oR God
Either way it is utter foolishness !!
Sin is still Sin whether you acknowledge it
or not

____________________________________________________________


I have seen what i can do with my life
I have seen what Jesus can do with my life
The choice is obvious
In all my ways acknowledge him and HE shall direct my path
____________________________________________________________

If you are not shining & being the light you were called to be
How will this dark world be able to see?
To much darkness means not enough light !!
____________________________________________________________

Why do you wait and watch for a miracle?
When you are a miracle
____________________________________________________________

If you are full on Sunday
Will you not also be hungry on Monday ?
Feast on the word daily
____________________________________________________________

Don't get it twisted
Trust in Jesus
Not trust in self
____________________________________________________________

God says in his word that if you diligently seek him your reward is comming
So i say stop seeking all these other things
Because His word also says But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
Prioritize
____________________________________________________________

Do what God says to do
Because that is the difference from you not having Victory
And having Victory
____________________________________________________________

Some do not have
Because YOU will not
Give
____________________________________________________________

You can work tirelessly staying trapped in and by your addictions
or you can work tirelessly to OVERCOME your addictions
etiher way it takes WORK

____________________________________________________________

God has this amazing & divine ability to meet EVERY ONE right where they are
Every second every minute of every hour of everyday
He can be anywhere he needs to be
Every where he needs to be
Always able to meet Everyone right where they are

____________________________________________________________

Christ sets us free and there is freedom in Christ
But this does not mean we are free to sin

____________________________________________________________
Get out of the wrong line
&
get into
DIVINE ORDER
____________________________________________________________

Grace is not given so you can live a sloppy life
Grace is given to allow you time to clean up
the slop
____________________________________________________________

When the Son is lifted up He shines
He warms us He brings Life
The Son rises everyday bringing forth light
A light so radiant no one dare look strait at it
The Son is HIGH & LIFTED UP Exalted set above all things
The Son shines for all to see ,let the Son shine on us all
Let the Son give life to you
____________________________________________________________

IF GOD IS GOOD
THAN WHERE DOES THAT LEAVE
YOU
____________________________________________________________

Knowledge of Sin
Is knowledge of God
Rejecting God acknowledges sin
Acknowledge God
Reject the Sin
____________________________________________________________

Stop trying to conceal your sin
Instead EXPOSE your sin & deal with it
Because it is dealing with you
Sin is EXPOSING you
The evidence is in your lifestyle
____________________________________________________________

Christ should not just be an accessory to your life
Christ should be your life
____________________________________________________________

The Gospel of Christ has been so watered down so many will drink it down
sweet as Kool-aid
But I tell you The Gospel of Christ is hard to swallow & FEW not Many
are able to drink from it's cup
____________________________________________________________

People parish for their lack of knowledge
They do not know what to do
& Yet so Many do not
Do what they
KNOW
____________________________________________________________
Life is very simple
When it is ALL ABOUT CHRIST
It only becomes complicated
When it becomes about US
____________________________________________________________

Do not withhold Mercy
For mercy will be withheld from you
Do not withhold forgiveness for Forgiveness will be withheld from you
Do not withhold Grace for if you do
Grace shall not be given to you
MAKE AMENDS
____________________________________________________________

If you are not investing IN your children
Than why do you Expect a good return?
This is foolishness
____________________________________________________________

Children do not want things
They want the thing that matters most
YOU
____________________________________________________________

You are Teaching others all the time
Whether you REALIZE this or not
____________________________________________________________

Are you a pleasant fragrance
when you come home
or are you a
Snitch
____________________________________________________________

God did not call us to go to church
He called us to BE the Church

____________________________________________________________

Do not just tell me about the Gospel
Show me the Gospel through your life
Do not Just teach the Gospel
Live it
Likewise
Parents do not just tell your children
Show them
do not just Teach them
Live it
____________________________________________________________

Being a Christian is so much more than muttering and repeating a prayer & declaring yourself SAVED
One of the biggest forms of Idolatry occurs every Sunday
worshiping this made up God that only exists in your mind
That allows all these detestable things and practices thinking all is well
Watching & listening to things without conviction ,Saying & doing what ever pleases
On Sunday "Praise the lord" "God is Good" Having a form of Godliness But Denying its power. You must bear fruit !! Will you bear fruit immediately ? certainly not no seed bears fruit freshly planted . But in time you will produce fruit if not you will be cut down thrown into the Fire.
____________________________________________________________

Theory definition
abstract thought : speculation

Darwin Had a Theory and it is regarded and taught as fact
and i am the one who gets mocked .
I have theories all the time lol
____________________________________________________________
I can see you from afar
When i get close enough to examine you
will i find Fruit ?
____________________________________________________________
Profession of Christ means absolutely nothing
Obedience to Christ is Everything !!
____________________________________________________________
He IS
i am not
This i am certain of
____________________________________________________________
are you who you say your are ?
because
He IS who HE says He IS !
____________________________________________________________

If you do not teach your children the Gospel of Christ
The world will teach them it's Gospel
____________________________________________________________
Do you HATE the SIN you once LOVED
saved

Or do you LOVE the SIN GOD HATES
unsaved

The world can see the difference
____________________________________________________________

IF you confess & profess Christ ANd yet live the same as the world
Why would the world want what you have ?
____________________________________________________________

Professing Christ must be followed up with Obedience
To Christ
or the unbelieving will never believe
why would they?
____________________________________________________________

It is amazing to me
How so many have time for so many other things
But Have not Time for the ONE who created it
____________________________________________________________
Millions of people THINK they are OBEYING GOD
But the sad REALITY is MOST do not even KNOW what
they are to OBEY .

In order to OBEY the commands
You must First KNOW what they are
And how can you know if you are not immersing yourself in the WORD of GOD

Thinking and KNOWING are completely different
____________________________________________________________

You are so EMPTY
Because you will not FILL the space with God
Or you are so FULL of stuff, worries , troubles,baggage ,things etcetera
That there is not enough room for him to Dwell
____________________________________________________________

If you are not walking With God
You are walking away from HIM
____________________________________________________________

Do Not suffer for nothing
GET
THE LESSON !!

____________________________________________________________
A lot of the time we say we CAN'T
when this is not the case at all
We CAN
We just CHOOSE not to
we need to Acknowledge the difference
____________________________________________________________

Teach
Train
&
Illustrate
not
Tell
Yell
&
Scream

Train a child in the way he or she shall go
____________________________________________________________
If you are Teaching your children
But not Following what you Teach
It will do Nothing but
ROT
____________________________________________________________
Are you busy building
YOUR OWN KINGDOM?
or
GOD's ?
____________________________________________________________

When the Spirit convicts you
It is not the time to indulge in SELF pity
It is time to
GO
TO
WORK !!
____________________________________________________________

SIN
is
SIN
No matter how you
spin it
dress it up
hide it
SIN
IS STILL
SIN
____________________________________________________________

We have not done enough to PRESERVE
Thus saith the LORD
& HIS WORD
The evidence of this is EVERYWHERE
It is all around us

____________________________________________________________

The spirit of compromise says
"well there is only a little bit of nudity in this one"
"there is just a little bit of cursing in this one"
Well how much Sin does it take to Grieve the HOLY SPIRIT?
____________________________________________________________

People who do not acknowledge God say
I live a good life i am a moral person
Really?
Lets put you deeds done in secrete and your thoughts on a projection screen
and show it to everyone
Still think that will be enough
I DID NOT THINK SO !!

____________________________________________________________

There is but one goal worthy of achieving
Today
and that is being pleasing to God
If you achieve this goal
Today was a success

____________________________________________________________

Do not seek second hand revelations
but seek God
First not man
____________________________________________________________
I marvel at my weaknesses
Because they WILL
Ultimately
Bring Glory to GOD
____________________________________________________________

There are aliens among us
They are Called
True Christians

____________________________________________________________

We have not done enough to PRESERVE
Thus saith the LORD
& HIS WORD
The evidence of this is EVERYWHERE
It is all around us

____________________________________________________________

We have taken the "American Dream"
& turned it to a Reality
Look where it has brought us

____________________________________________________________

You can build and raise up an IDOL in one day
& spend a Life Time tearing it down

____________________________________________________________

We are not called to give our children everything we never had
We are called to give them ourselves
Men are to work by the sweat of their brow
Not live off the sweat of others
This is why we have so many lazy people
They want what they have not earned and worked for

____________________________________________________________

Godless children
Can not wait to teach your children
Godless things
Do your children know the difference ?
____________________________________________________________

Do not hang around Foolish people
& Expect
Wisdom to flow from their lips

____________________________________________________________

We have so reduced God to a Genni in a bottle but i tell you this
HE IS
THE ALPHA & OMEGA
THE BEGINNING & THE END
WHO WAS & IS & IS TO COME
HE IS THE GREAT
I AM

____________________________________________________________

Are you broken hearted over your sin ?
or is your sin broken hearted because you left it ?

____________________________________________________________

There will be a greater manifestation of power in your life
A greater manifestation of Christ
When obedience to the word of God becomes your reality !!

____________________________________________________________

The SPIRIT WITHIN you agrees that the law God himself has written on your heart is good
When this happens your flesh rages war against the law that is written on your heart
&
The battle begins !!

____________________________________________________________

The fool says the wrong path
Is the right way for me
____________________________________________________________
The wise says listen
The fool closes his ear
The wise says to the fool , only bad comes from the choice you are about to make
The fool answers but not for me , it will be different
____________________________________________________________
The fool tries to mix words of wisdom within his foolishness
And yet ends up right back where he started
____________________________________________________________
The wise points out fools error with correction in mind
Fool answers
so
____________________________________________________________
The greedy looks and beholds he has plenty of his own
and realizes he has not had any of yours yet
____________________________________________________________
The lazy looks at the worker and says
Work harder
So i can do less
____________________________________________________________
The lair with crumbs on his face & hand in the cookie jar
Looks up & because of his hasty removal of his hand
Looks you in the eye and Declares
IT WAS NOT ME !!
____________________________________________________________
The liar Believes his OWN lies
making
HIMSELF
a believable liar
____________________________________________________________
The spirit inside that can admit there wrongs can overcome them . The Holy Spirit reveals these Truths , ones Ownership of this Truth brings forth Power never thought possible the Power to OVERCOME !!
____________________________________________________________
The true character of a man or a woman is truly seen
When they are in the Valley not on the Mountain Top
____________________________________________________________
If you step out of the light
ONLY
darkness awaits
Stay in the LIGHT
____________________________________________________________
At the beginning of every start
God was there
& Whatever God starts he will not abandon
He will finish what he started
He was there from the beginning of EVERYTHING
So shall he be until completion
____________________________________________________________
Self never helped me
I did not need self help books
Self never helped at all
All self did was cause more trouble
But it was God who not only helped but delivered
____________________________________________________________
We have so reduced the Bible
Going to and from book to book
5 ways to this and 10 steps to that
Instead of THE ONE BOOK
That reveals All Things about
All things
THE HOLY BIBLE.
Your best life now is Found In Christ
Your best life now is Found in The Word of God
YOUR BEST LIFE NOW IS FOUND IN OBEDIENCE TO CHRIST !!
____________________________________________________________
Why limp in the flesh
When you can Sprint
in
The HOLY SPIRIT
____________________________________________________________
Take a look at your past
& than look to CHRIST for your
FUTURE
____________________________________________________________
A little bit of study
Of the Word of GOD
Produces
A whole lot of SELF
IN
The WORLD
____________________________________________________________
I can see your HEART for CHRIST
Because I can see what you do with
Your body , what you listen to, what you watch
Your HEART for CHRIST is very much on DISPLAY

...What didn't you know?
Well now you do !!

___________________________________________________________

You must walk IN
THE WAY OF TRUTH
In order for it to be a Reality
___________________________________________________________
The Christian life is to be
REAL NOW
Not desired later
___________________________________________________________
We are to know God as the Greater
Not the lesser
Somewhere along the way we have tried to become
The Greater and not the lesser
This is why we know not of God's Glory
It can only be Revealed when you become lesser
& HE IS
THE GREATER

___________________________________________________________

Men may come to allow & even except
EXCUSES
This however shall not be
When one comes before CHRIST
___________________________________________________________

Most depression stems fom merely not getting ones way
You can't have what YOU want
Go where YOU want to go
Live how YOU would like to be living
God wants you to want what HE wants you to want
Go where HE would like you to go
And live how he wants you to live.
MOST depression is caused by NOT DOING what God created you to be doing
Living for HIS GLORY & NOT your own
___________________________________________________________

Is the Gospel of Christ & it's Truth
Becoming A bigger Reality In your Life ?
If it is not I BEG you to EXAMINE YOURSELF
To see if you are IN The FAITH and that it is Genuine
Because if the Gospel of Christ has not & is not CONTINUALLY
Changing & Conforming you into the image of Christ
Make No Mistake about it You are
DECEIVED

___________________________________________________________

Christ is to be something to BEHOLD
To be EXALTED
Not Leisurely or Conveniently
For what was Accomplished on the Cross is Hardly Even
Mentionable because of Its HOLINESS !!
& Yet it is Talked about so
RECKLESSLY
It has become Blasphemous

___________________________________________________________

We Really need to talk what the>

___________________________________________________________

Grace can not be used as an EXCUSE
EVER !!
for it is no longer GRACE if that is the case
it is just a
EXCUSE
___________________________________________________________

In LIGHT
of
EVERYTHING
We
KNOW
about
God
Why are so many still in the dark ?

___________________________________________________________

How can this be To be so mesmerized by your beauty
Standing in AWE of you for you are unseen
Yet i feel you running through my veins
LIFE this LIFE you have created ,Drawn to you by all that is seen in all your creations
What a magnificent God we serve
To KNow this God is almost to glorious to speak of
So greateful for his majesties presence so thankful
For this one who saw me in my most desperate state & saved me
Who am i that you would know me
This KING this KING of GLORY !!
The glimpse of your touch was & is enough to sustain me in this life & the life to come

___________________________________________________________

Why do you consider YOURSELF to be Wise
Yet hang in the company of FOOLS ?
A man Wise in his OWN eyes
Will do this very thing & become even more Foolish
WAKE UP !!
Be seated next to the Wise
& inturn you will become Wise
IN TIME

___________________________________________________________

I have been known to leave this life i lead
So Lord hold on to me & let me not go
I truly believe in what i can not see
I do feel your presence as close as my very breath
HOLD ON TO ME

___________________________________________________________

Those who are STANDING ON
The ROCK
The Only Foundation in which to build a Foundation upon
Can NEVER EVER fall off that Rock
They only fall ON The Rock
Never off the Rock But on The Rock
That is CHRIST JESUS

___________________________________________________________

Just who do you think you are hiding from? You can only fool people for so long before the jig is up. You are not even hiding from yourself, the spirit inside testifies to this !
& Above all you are not hiding from God for as you are in pain he longs to be your deliverer !. Stop hiding & come to the one who came to , heal the broken hearted the bruised & the wounded. I know what i am talking about , i used to be all 3 of these.
Now i have THE 3 the FATHER, the SON, & the HOLY SPIRIT . Come to HIM, all you who are weary and burdened, and HE will give you rest.

___________________________________________________________

If you are living and doing the same things you were doing when you first
found Christ ask yourself what has changed? If you are doing the same things ask yourself why because you MUST take off the OLD Man and put on THE NEW.
You must not have the old nature and Claim to be representing CHRIST
This is not real check yourself ,been there done that . It does not work instead put all you have into seeking CHRIST than there is no time to entertain SELF and it's passions and desires .

It is self inventory time

___________________________________________________________

Sanctification is a process
& a LIFE LONG at that
Do not judge
You have no clue were someone is in this process
Look back at your walk
It was not and is not an easy process
There should be fruit but you do not get to determine for some one else
When the fruit bares
So let the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit determine when the fruit is bared

___________________________________________________________

O my Great God where would i be if you would have never given me eyes to see
Where would i be without Guidance
Where none could be found in the Natural of my Flesh
With eyes to see I can find beauty in the pain, In turn your Praise I will sing
My darkest days are now filled with Your light
My soul is well
I will tell All what you have done for me

___________________________________________________________

Man trying through Carnal means
To do the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit will
FAIL
Because God will not be there
He will not be in it
Because
YOU
Are in the way

___________________________________________________________
Why do Christians seek out wicked counsel from unsaved ungodly men and woman
The word of God says to seek out WISE counsel not wicked counsel
Not counsel that will tell you what YOUR itching ears want to hear
But Wise Counsel that can save your soul and set you on the strait path
Wise counsel from Godly men and woman
Counsel that will tell you want you NEED to hear not what you WANT to hear

___________________________________________________________

Do not want what God has given Me
In fact do not want what God has given another
You could be cutting yourself short , what if God wants you to have more than what
He has given me or more than what he has given another .
Also you might not be able to handle what it takes or what it took in order to get what God has given to me
or what it takes or took in order for God to have given to another
Instead ask and seek for the Promises that he has for you

___________________________________________________________

To try to win a soul for Christ by keeping that soul in ignorance of any
truth, is contrary to the mind of the Spirit; and to endeavor to save men by
mere claptrap, or excitement, or oratorical display, is as foolish as to hope to
hold an angel with bird-lime, or lure a star with music. The best attraction is the
gospel in its purity. The weapon with which the Lord conquers men is the truth
as it is in Jesus.

"Charles Spurgeon"

___________________________________________________________

regeneration is that man in his fallen
nature consists only of body and soul, and that when he is "born again" there is
created in him a new and higher nature—"the spirit"—which is a spark from
the everlasting fire of God's life and love; this falls into the heart, and abides
there, and makes its receiver a partaker of the divine nature." Thenceforward,
the man consists of three parts, body, soul, and spirit, and the spirit is the
reigning power of the three.
Charles Spurgeon

I replaced the word "regenerated" with born again because that is what it really means.

___________________________________________________________


How have we so reduced The Gospel to muttering a prayer and proclaiming one saved . Man does not even have the authority to proclaimed one saved or born again ,yet the church does this despicable practice every Sunday . Being born again is a Supernatural work of the Holy Spirit and the evidence will be the fruit they bare and the changed lifestyle. There is no such thing as a "carnal Christian" This is a oxymoron . A person can not live in a continuous carnal state after supposedly taking Christ as Savior , to do so is to blaspheme God and the Holy spirit. When a person is truly born again they may in the beginning be very much carnal but a continuous work of the Holy Spirit will gradually begin to give them a new nature if this is not the case with you Christian be very afraid !!



___________________________________________________________

Parents life is short so do what God has called you to do
Raise your children or some one else or something else will
Play with your children they will only ask so many times before they stop asking
They will find some one else or something else to play with


___________________________________________________________

There is no such thing as Hidden Sin
Only sin that MUST BE
MASTERED and CONQUERED
No matter how deep the struggle
Sin MUST be MASTERED & CONQUERED
NEVER HIDDEN


___________________________________________________________

The Atheist is correct in the aspect of logic
The problem with logic is God is not interested in anyone's logic
Our highest thought we might ever have is but dung compared
to Gods INFAMOUS WISDOM
The creator of ALL THINGS


___________________________________________________________

All atheism really stands for is
Man choosing to ignore the laws God has written on his or her heart
So as to not
to
have to submit to them


___________________________________________________________

God will have ALL the Glory because he deserves ALL the GLORY
God will have ALL the Glory or NONE at all
The glory YOU want for yourself is not glory at all
only SELFISHNESS
For what do you have that has not been given to you by the Giver of
All things
ALL Glory all Honor not only belongs to God
But ALL Glory & Honor
is Gods


___________________________________________________________

Human nature, in some aspects, is an awful thing; but when the Lord
Jesus Christ took it, and joined His own divine nature to it, He made a grand
thing of it, and human nature is a noble thing when it is united to the Lord Jesus
Christ.

"CHARLES SPURGEON"


___________________________________________________________

With out Christ indwelling in my whole being
I am nothing more than a wretched sinner .
But as the HOLY ONE incarnated in me and cleansed me
I am becoming all the more holy and righteous


___________________________________________________________

Love those around you , extend grace
Walk humble in and out of the sight of men and woman
Stop talking about Jesus & be like JESUS
Do not only tell but SHOW


___________________________________________________________

We all have a deep inner sense of the divine in all of us
Placed there as a spark.
This spark is waiting to be ignited into a burning light
An ALL consuming fire to shine before ALL
As proof of the Most High God


___________________________________________________________

You can teach your children so many things
But if you have not First and Foremost taught them
THE FEAR OF THE LORD
They Shall NOT have the WISDOM to uphold ANYTHING you have or will teach them


___________________________________________________________

Fathers & Husbands love to boast about the headship and their great role in the family
Forget not that you also have a headship over you
Be very mindful of this
Boast not in your own headship
But boast in
Only the ONE who has headship over you


___________________________________________________________

You need to realize it does not matter what you think
Because it is not about what you think AT ALL
IN FACT
That is the problem
It is not what you think but what does
THE WORD OF GOD SAY


___________________________________________________________

Walking by Faith is to DO
Not to sit and wait


___________________________________________________________

If people read their bibles
There would not be a need for a bracelet or t - shirt
Asking what would Jesus Do?
Because they would KNOW what Jesus would do
Because the Bible tells us what Jesus would do
The reason you do not know is because you do study the word of God


___________________________________________________________

Jesus calls us to bare Good FRUIT
So others may see HIM
Through US
IF
The only fruit you are baring
Is in farm-ville
God is not pleased
___________________________________________________________


Any Time spent in self pity
Is time lost
Because that time could be spent getting your dignity back
Because you have absolutely NO dignity or respect while having
Pity on Self


___________________________________________________________

Do you want to be great?
If you truly want to be great
than become the least of men & woman
and Serve


___________________________________________________________

Husbands you may be CALLED to assume headship over your wife and children
But Do Not
Forget that you are also CALLED
to be the FIRST to
SACRIFICE
___________________________________________________________




So many people really do not want to get better
Because their INTENTION is not to get better at all
But to simply get by


___________________________________________________________

Turning AWAY from the sin in your life is the HARD thing to do.( the narrow path)
Turning TOWARD the sins of our fleshly desires is very EASY to do.
Turning TOWARDS the sinful flesh of lust ,greed,pride the touch & taste
of sin so enticing
Pleasures pleasurable sin
Feeding engulfing sin down mindless
Careless in the BEGINNING
Always fulfilling our flesh to the point of EMPTY
(wide path)

___________________________________________________________

Victory over one particular sin is to wage war against the unseen. A maddening struggle
Unseen but felt on so many levels internally in the soul, intertwining mingling with the spirit. Fiercely fought in the mental. Producing battle scars & wounds as reminders of the many battles before the ultimate victory of the war. Raging hurricane force tears falling just before the calm & peace after the realization of the grace that sustained you that was only really noticeable after the dust has settled

___________________________________________________________


Do not make life about yourself
Instead make your life unto the Glory of GOD
Do not like your job? Do it unto the Glory of GOD
Do not like school ? Do it unto the Glory of GOD
Take your life and make it about GOD & his GLORY
Life will not only become more peaceful and enjoyable
Life will make sense
Unto self life is just miserable



___________________________________________________________

Everything done in dark will be exposed to the light anyway If you are a child of God
You might as well deal with it now because it will have to be dealt with sooner or later
It is the weak things that give God the most Glory anyway In our weakness lies our greatest strength for God to put on display through us for Him



___________________________________________________________

Man i just can not begin to fathom Gods greatness
What a wonderful God I am so blessed to serve
WOW I LOVE YOU JESUS
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU !!!!!!!



___________________________________________________________

It is ALL CHRIST
& NONE of ME
I must be emptied so that it can be ALL of HIM
Christ will remove all of me
For there is NOTHING good in me
So He may take up residence



___________________________________________________________

Why are you jealous of what I have
If you knew what it took & takes to have what God has given me
You probably would not want it



___________________________________________________________
If you can not even be Real with YOURSELF
You WILL be FAKE with other people
& If you Lie to YOURSELF
You WILL lie to OTHERS
Walk in TRUTH at ALL TIMES
& You will be able to OVERCOME
ANY situation or circumstance


___________________________________________________________
Walk IN TRUTH & be TRUE to YOURSELF
So that you can HELP someone else
OUT of their own
LIE



___________________________________________________________

Only after you acknowledge your own weaknesses and failures
You can overcome them
& AFTER you OVERCOME them
You OWE it to others to reach out & help them out of their own
DENIAL

Thank you , I really hope it inspires people or gives them something to think about .I do no most of this comes from my own personal struggles or something that i feel God is dealing with me or something he has dealt with me before.

Well thanks for the encouragement , it helps knowing that even if one person gets something from this than it is well worth it

___________________________________________________________

When your OBEDIENCE aligns with the knowledge you have of GOD
He Will
DO
ABUNDANTLY More
Than you could ever imagine !!

___________________________________________________________

sELF pITY IS Selfish
There is no room for God to work in your life
While you are CONSUMED with sELF
___________________________________________________________

Do NOT set your garbage out of the curb for CHRIST to come and pick it up
Only to go running and sprinting torwards it
To grab hold of it before HE TAKES it away
Leave your PAST on the curb
Let CHRIST do what he came to do
& that is to take it ALL away
NEVER to be counted against you again

___________________________________________________________

People use the EXCUSE of asking
How can a loving GOD throw people into hell?
In order to justify their own WILL of being their very own god
It IS NOT Gods WILL that puts people in hell
It is THEIR OWN WILL that puts them in hell
Do not get it twisted

___________________________________________________________

God is not some cosmic cop
Who wants to whack you everytime you do something wrong
All tho HE does want to protect and serve
GOD Desires to PROTECT you from the sin and the things of this world
NOT restrict you

___________________________________________________________

The alcoholic is only searching for God in a bottle
The drug addict is merely searching for God in his or hers next fix
The whorelet is only searching for God in the bedroom or in the alley or wherever it may be
The man knocking on the whorelets door goes there looking and searching for God
Plainly put the sinner is only searching for relief from his or her sins and all the destructive things that come from their sin in all the wrong places.
The VOID we all have can ONLY be filled by GOD !!




___________________________________________________________

DO NOT try to fake it until you make it
Because the REALITY of your TRUE state
WILL be SKEWED




___________________________________________________________

There is but one word
Need HELP
Need LOVE
There is but one word
Need guidance , deliverance ?
One
There is but one word
The word above ALL NAMES
JESUS
CALL HIM
It is FREE



___________________________________________________________

You are FOCUSED on the pain
Instead of putting your FOCUS on the
LIVING GOD
Who can deliver you from the pain you have




___________________________________________________________

If you are caught NOT under the influence of the Holy Spirit
It could land you in in "hell"
Friends don't let friends be UNSAVED




___________________________________________________________

EXCUSES do not get the desired results of
PROGRESS
They delay them



___________________________________________________________

Just what is it EXACTLY do you THINK you have that has not been GIVEN to you?
I got news for you Everything you have is ALL HIS !!
You are just a STEWARD




___________________________________________________________

What a difference a prayer makes
From Boasting in all of my glorious stupidity
I remember this Boasting on the OUTSIDE , look at all the alcohol i had consumed, look at all of the drugs i have done and sold
Boasting in all of my glorious stupidity.
Boasting on the OUTSIDE
Look I have conquered this one and that one Basking & Boasting on the OUTSIDE ,But TRULY DYING on the INSIDE !!
Now a days I BOAST of the GLORIOUS SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST for Saving me from my OWN slow and torturous DEATH
If i Boast let it be Only IN the LORD
WOW what a difference a prayer makes




___________________________________________________________

Draw near to God and he will draw near to you
God is not coming down here to help you with your problems
But he did say he would not leave us comfortless
That he would send the HELPER the Holy Spirit
We are not as intelligent as the Holy Spirit
The Problem is that we TRY to be
God has given us EVERYTHING we need to OVERCOME
ANY
Situation or Circumstance
It is called
The Holy Spirit
STOP than LISTEN
Than
DO
You WILL OVERCOME!!



___________________________________________________________

EXCUSES Do NOT get results
They DELAY them
STOP making EXCUSES they are wasting everyone's time
Matter of fact they are wasting your own time
If you want the desired results of PROGRESS
SHUT UP Stop making EXCUSES & Get to WORK !!
Nothing gets done without the WORK
SO GET TO WORK !!

___________________________________________________________

Perfect LOVE will demolish
With the INTENT of building you back up
Piece by Piece with a STRONGER
FOUNDATION
Which is CHRIST JESUS
Perfect LOVE not only WILL do this
It MUST

___________________________________________________________

I can walk even when i can not see
My Faith allows this Great and precious Gift
Even when you can not see
Allow the Faith you have be your eyes

___________________________________________________________

Be on the look out for the Stumbling Block
That the ENemy will SURELY try to put before the
ADVANCEMENT of the KINGDOM of GOD
With Spiritual Eyes you will SEE
With Spiritual EARS you will Hear
& HE WILL
Reroute your Divinely Directed Path

___________________________________________________________

I am Born Again made a NEW creation
The OLD has passed & the NEWNESS of CHRIST has made it's dwelling place
& taken up residence in me
The only Defense I have is the Cross
So that i may be Righteous
IN the presence of GOD
NOTHING EARNED
Only GRACE
Freely GIVEN
All I had to do was RECEIVE It

___________________________________________________________

We are like sheep's
what do sheep's do ?
They stray from the pin "kingdom"
But we have a Good Sheppard that comes for his sheep and Returns them
to the pin
for his sheep HEAR his voice and FOLLOW him

___________________________________________________________

We are ALL born with this disease called SIN
THANKFULLY there is a cure
Called
JESUS CHRIST !!!

___________________________________________________________
THERE is Nothing in this LIFE
That when you SUFFER
That will not bring fourth FRUIT
IF
You are
IN
CHRIST JESUS

___________________________________________________________

He knows the way
Because
He is
THE WAY
___________________________________________________________
People LIVE
What they PROCLAIM
I PROCLAIM Jesus Christ as my Savior
THEREFORE I Should
LIVE like HIM
What are you LIVING like?
What are you PROCLAIMING ? You LIVE OUT what you are PROCLAIMING
KNOWING or UNKNOWING

___________________________________________________________
If you find yourself INDULGING the sin you are suppose to be Shunning
You should EXAMINE YOURSELF
To see if you are still in THE FAITH
For Born Again Truly means talking OFF the OLD
How can the OLD way of LIFE be mixed With the NEW
Be one or the other OR you WILL BE SPEWED OUT OF HIS MOUTH

___________________________________________________________

Be OBEDIENT to the things God places on your heart
This is were your focus should be
Everyone will be used according to HIS WILL
Gods WILL is accomplished through INDIVIDUALS
Gods plan for my life IS NOT the same as someone else s
STOP worrying about doing all these OTHER things
& DO
what
HE has placed on your heart
Start there

___________________________________________________________

How can you handle the BIGGER things God has planned for your life
IF you CAN NOT even be OBEDIENT to the small things
HE has placed in your heart to DO

___________________________________________________________

If you are EMBRACING
your
SIN
YOU are only DECEIVING
YOURSELF


___________________________________________________________


GOD gave us the GIFT of LIFE
We should make our LIFE a GIFT to GOD
In DOING so we will BECOME
A Gift to EACH OTHER

_________________________________________________________________

GOD gave us the GIFT of LIFE
We should make our LIFE a GIFT to GOD
In DOING so we will BECOME
A Gift to EACH OTHER

_________________________________________________________________

Do not wait for something to be wrong in the marriage before you decided to do something . Get the information that will build the marriage up now so when things do get rough you will know how to handle them.

_________________________________________________________________
Realize just as man yearns for
desires & demands justice to be carried out , even to the point of even exacting ones own justice. So to our DIVINE GOD yearns & desires and will most CERTAINLY Demand that DIVINE Justice will be carried out
Swiftly and with such RIGHTEOUSNESS as to CLEANSE & rid the earth of ALL SIN
Because just as you expect justice & say justice must be done
CHRIST Must come with DIVINE JUSTICE
HE has no choice He is HOLY & RIGHTEOUS
WITHOUT BLEMISH

_________________________________________________________________

My confidence comes from Christ
For I can do nothing apart from Christ
I owe it ALL to HIM for before Christ came into my life my Confidence was FALSE
It was not real it was not TRUE on the inside dying outwardly projecting what the world WANTED to see.
Now I realize how important he is in me
Now I do not have to hide anything , for NOTHING is HIDDEN from him anyway
Simply a child of GOD loved by God wonderfully and beautifully hand sculpted by HIM
So now I have the FREEDOM to be who HE created me to be
Taken from the filth and rot of my sin Now forgiven washed clean whiter than snow
O the Joy of CHRIST in my life !!

_________________________________________________________________

Being good to your fellow man & yet rejecting the very ONE who made you will not be enough for even the HEATHEN do some good for one another
Being good DOES NOT deal with the wretchedness of your SIN
Being good IS NOT good enough because although you may do good & think you are a good person but the FACT of the matter is
That you are a steaming pile of SIN walking around in your FLESH in need of a SAVIOR Who came and died for ALL SIN so you may be Righteous Not good for no one is good Not one
NONE is good but the FATHER

_________________________________________________________________

Are you preaching a different gospel to the world with the way you are living your life?
You may preach a different gospel by the way you live your life
If it is contrary to the word of God than it is a different gospel ENTIRELY
Be Very MINDFUL of this
That you REPRESENT the most HIGH KING
You are a Ambassador For CHRIST
YOU may be the only Bible someone ever reads

_________________________________________________________________

Why do Christians seek out wicked counsel from unsaved ungodly men and woman
The word of God says to seek out WISE counsel not wicked counsel
Not counsel that will tell you what YOUR itching ears want to hear
But Wise Counsel that can save your soul and set you on the strait path
Wise counsel from Godly men and woman
Counsel that will tell you want you NEED to hear not what you WANT to hear

_________________________________________________________________

If some one is jealous of you or hatin on you this is a good thing
All this means is they want what you have
You are doing something they wish they could be doing but are not
You are using your God given gifts talents and abilities and they are not
Or they have not figured out what theirs are or they wish they had yours.
So when someone is jealous or hatin on you
You no why
Not such a bad position to be in after all

_________________________________________________________________

You ARE created to bring GLORY & HONOR to GOD
So why are you WORKING so DILIGENTLY to bring
glory and honor to yourself

_________________________________________________________________

Rules are walls of protection
Entertaining the outside
The Flesh passions and it's Desires
Will sooner or later CONSUME you from the INSIDE

_________________________________________________________________

Tell people how you are LIVING
Not with your words
But with the way
IN
Which you LIVE

_________________________________________________________________

The Tools for success are SPIRITUAL Not physical
There are FORCES out to Destroy your LIFE
You are IN a War but it is a SPIRITUAL War
In order to not only
Win but be Victorious
Put on the FULL Armour of GOD

_________________________________________________________________

Willfully & Knowingly disobeying the will of God
Will put you outside of the realm
of HIS
PROTECTION
&
This is a scary place to be

_________________________________________________________________

To live life is to Love God
If you do not Love God
You can not Live Life
God gives life
God is Love
God is to be your life
And when God is your life
You will be Love

_________________________________________________________________

Man has put together The Word of GOD
But does this in anyway take away it's GLORY
Surely NOT !!
Does it still not have the Breath of God Breathed IN it
Giving LIFE & Nutrition to Thy bones
To be Food from HEAVEN
Is quite an UNDERSTATEMENT

_________________________________________________________________


You simply can not win a battle running away
It has never worked in the past and it shall not in the future
Stand and fight



_________________________________________________________________

Sin to the Believer shall be an INTOLERABLE BURDEN
To the non believer there is no such thing
But this does not EXCUSE the offense

_________________________________________________________________

IF you are searching for meaning or purpose
It is to be found IN the Very Creator GOD
Who made all and is Responsible for ALL
News Flash this life is not about you so Stop Making this Life about you
My life TOTALLY CHANGED when i REALIZED my WHOLE LIFe HAD been about me
The Day I REALIZED This LIFE was about GOD his purpose HIS PLAN
LIFE MADE SENSE
The GOD of the UNIVERSE made ALL THINGS look around nothing can EXPLAIN
PERFECT HARMONY everything working TOGETHER with PERFECTION
AN accident ya right , evolution Ya RIGHT
Science exists only BECAUSE GOD gave us insight into just how FREAKING GREAT
HE IS WAKE UP !!!
you are CALLED to LIVE FOR HIM not YOURSELF

_________________________________________________________________

It is Grace that Sustains your Faith
Without Grace Faith is not even
Possible

_________________________________________________________________

I am a product of Grace
To behold this TRUTH is a miracle in and of itself
To be in fellowship with the Creator to be Loved instead of Shunned
To be Bought to INSURE this relationship is almost unfathomable
But he Did
Not only for me but You also

_________________________________________________________________

While The BLOOD covers ALL of my Sin
The CROSS offers Deliverance
Knowing that these two Laws are at work FULLY in my life
Is something to be in Awe of

_________________________________________________________________

God wants you to Draw Near to HIM
Satan wants you to draw near to SIN

_________________________________________________________________

Be very mindful that God is ALWAYS drawing you to Himself
Satan is ALWAYS trying to draw you away from God & to himself
Always TRYING to MIMIC God in EVERYTHING
GOD WILLFULLY calls you to HIMSELF
NEVER pushing you away but ALWAYS drawing you closer
Satan is ALWAYS Willfully PULLING you toward HIMSELF
Always drawing you closer to SIN

_________________________________________________________________

Although sin may be gratifying it is Never Satisfied
With a Continual LUST for MORE
Gratifying yes
Satisfying Certainly NOT
For Sin is pleasurable for a time or a season
But it ALWAYS leads to Despair and Absolute MISERY

_________________________________________________________________

The longer you put off Doing Gods Agenda
The Larger your own Agenda becomes

_________________________________________________________________

Today's society views marriage as a contract
when it does not work out , well terminate. God made marriage a COVENANT till death nothing can break a covenant . Marriage is a replica of God and the relationship that we have with him. He goes so fare as to call us his bride . Things will be hard

Good and bad but we have each other to lean on . Imagine God with a contract with us , o boy what would that look like . Well they changed , they did not do this up to my standard , they sin way to much.

Contract expired on to the next , God has grace and with out it marriages would not last . We are to give grace we are to love even when it does not feel right.

He made a covenant with his people US . That he would never leave us or forsake us. Marriage is to be the same a Covenant otherwise it is a contract and that is not of God it is today's society idea of a Covenant
_________________________________________________________________

When you overcome something you MUST continue to OVERCOME
For what ever it was that you have OVERCAME
Has the opportunity to OVERCOME YOU once again
If you do not CONTINUE to OVERCOME you shall be OVERCOME again

_________________________________________________________________

If you are CONSTANTLY looking BACK
You will NEVER be able to look
FORWARD
to the FUTURE God has PLANNED for you

_________________________________________________________________

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you
SEEK :- search for God he will reveal himself to you
The KINGDOM:- Things you can not even conceive of with your mind
HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS- The Holiness of God The Greatness of GOD Instruction from God
THESE THINGS:- will be yours: Salvation ,Holy Spirit ,Discernment,Adoption into the Royal Family,Grace,Forgiveness,Righteousness,Faith,,Knowledge & Wisdom from GOD
Love, Joy unspeakable, Peace that surpasses ALL understanding,Patience, Kindness, Goodness,Material Things, hearts desires according to His will, Eternal LIFE,Mercy
Relationship with JESUS CHRIST .
What are you WAITING FOR ???

_________________________________________________________________

When you allow the Holy Spirit to work in you & through you
People around you will behold Gods righteousness inside you
& they will shut their mouths & begin to watch their tongue
Not because of who you are but because of Who's you are

ever notice how people will watch what they say around you?
Not because they have so much respect for you but it is more
about respect for God who they choose to mostly ignore
that is until you come around lol


_________________________________________________________________

Man being this blessed just feels at times ridiculous lol

_________________________________________________________________

2 things that ALWAYS
WANT
MORE
GREED
&
PRIDE
_________________________________________________________________

So many do not want hear the TRUTH
This is why so many do not want to read the WORD of GOD
Because it is the TRUTH
& This TRUTH will penetrate right to your
CORE

_________________________________________________________________

Just in case you have not been told or need to hear it

I

LOVE

YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

________________________________________________________________

The choice is ultimately ours to FORGIVE
To CHOOSE to live in the NEWNESS of Christ or to
STAY In the PAST and be CHAINED to it


________________________________________________________________

I put on Christ
& started to LIVE out HIS
WILL
& My life BECAME a BLESSING
No longer a curse


________________________________________________________________

My faith did not GROW to be where it is today
Without going through MANY things
& seeing God's GRACE
In ACTION in my life


________________________________________________________________

There are questions and that is OK because how will you get the answers if you are not asking.
Just understand that you are approaching a Holy God
and he is to be treated as such.

He is also a loving Father and WANTS to COMFORT you and give you the answers you seek.
The problem is that he has given most of the answers we just do not like the answers he has given


________________________________________________________________

I am so THANKFUL God NEVER forsakes me for HE said so
I am so THANKFUL GOD NEVER leaves me for HE said so
I am so so THANKFUL GOD gives GRACE to allow me to GROW in ALL
The areas where i am not strong enough to stand
GOD IS NOT like man
HE does what he says HE will do
& HE is who HE says HE is


________________________________________________________________

If you do not LEARN from your MISTAKES you WILL
REPEAT them
So ask yourself this ?
Am i learning from my MISTAKES
If you are not than find out why
Find the cause otherwise the SELF INFLICTED INSANITY
WILL INEVITABLY CONTINUE


________________________________________________________________

Sin is like an incredible me

________________________________________________________________

You are worthy because CHRIST said you are worthy
So STOP worrying about what others tell you

________________________________________________________________

There will Never be a time when your Faith is done GROWING


________________________________________________________________

You are QUALIFIED
Grab Hold of this TRUTH you have been QUALIFIED sense the day you were SAVED
Claim this NOW & GO LIVE it !!


________________________________________________________________

You are Diminishing your Qualification and the power God has ENDOWED
YOU with or you are letting others Diminish your QUALIFICATION
Make no mistake about it YOU are QUALIFIED because GOD said so
Now ACT LIKE IT !!


________________________________________________________________

I have been RESCUED from darkness
& Have been Placed into the MARVELOUS
LIGHT
of the SON
JESUS CHRIST

________________________________________________________________

SHINE the LIGHT of JESUS
IN TO someones DARKNESS & make a difference
Be what you ARE CALLED to be
& That is a LIGHT unto the world
Change someones DESTINY


________________________________________________________________


In order to SERVE the LORD you MUST be WILLING to
Do away with YOU
& CHOOSE HIM
Coming as a CHILD WILLING to learn as if you knew nothing


________________________________________________________________

There are 2 kinds of Addicts
One that CHOOSES Not To Deal with his or hers ADDICTIONS
The other is the ADDICT that ADMITS he or she is IN FACT an ADDICT
& DECIDES to DEAL with the addictions NO LONGER
Allowing the addictions to keep DEALING with them


________________________________________________________________

GODS plan for your life can be found
NOT walking in the darkness
But can be FOUND walking IN the LIGHT


________________________________________________________________

You may have ALL of the riches of this world
But WITHOUT
CHRIST
YOU are BROKE


________________________________________________________________

Your Faith MUST
INCREASE if you EXPECT to be HEALED
For Jesus said MANY times "it is by your faith that you are healed"
So now you can STOP WAITING on JESUS
Because he has been waiting on you
GO NOW & INCREASE Your FAITH and be HEALED


________________________________________________________________

If you MUST see to BELIEVE
FAITH will continue to
ELUDE you


________________________________________________________________

There is NOWHERE that I could go where you will not find me
There is NOWHERE not one place that I will not find you there
I can not get away from YOU for You CHASE me down for YOUR LOVE
Has no choice it is your very NATURE
EVERYWHERE I go it is YOUR
GRACE
That IS UNESCAPABLE
THANK YOU JESUS FOR YOUR GRACE !!!!


________________________________________________________________

Why do we SNATCH away from one another & even from ourselves
What YOU so freely and lovingly give away to all of us
& that is
GRACE


________________________________________________________________

I can Blow your mind with just one word
Enough to try to grasp for an eternity
For it WILL TAKE that long to BEHOLD it

CALVARY !!!

________________________________________________________________

NEVER EXALT yourself
For we ALL fall short For GOD Is GLORY
The CREATOR of ALL THINGS !!
There is NOTHING to which to compare
EXALT GOD
NEVER self


________________________________________________________________

Are you worried because you are different from everyone else?
Do not be afraid
You SHOULD BE different because YOU are different
In FACT GOD made YOU so different there is only one YOU in ALL of the world
So do not worry if you are different actually this is
EXACTLY how GOD PLANNED it
So go be YOU !!

______________________________________________________________

Ponder this
The perfect existence of everything in perfect harmony
The sun Perfectly placed with perfect purpose
Food with nutrients for the Human race and animals
Plants that give off oxygen & trees that do the same
Clouds to protect from harmful rays
Rain to hydrate the earth & Humans
Blood flowing through perfectly placed veins to every part of the body in seconds
The human body in perfection all organs perfectly placed in need of all the things listed above
Flowers ,bees to pollinate
Perfect harmony of all insects & animals with each having predators keeping balance. Every creature with its purpose maintaining the earth.

Ponder this
The mind
The male The female perfect harmony and together WOW
The making of a Human inside another Human everything
in place for it even happen
One having and needing one another
The seed the egg the combining
DNA
Perfection by accident
PLEASE
There is not a calculator that could calculate the imposable number it would take to calculate all of this perfection happening by accident or over time .

Everything perfect in its place
sun ,moon,stars,water,oxygen,nutrients to sustain,fruits,vegetables, meat,all sources to sustain our life and others life,clouds,rain,heat,photosynthesis,fall,winter,spring,summer,all perfection.

Ponder this
Behold Gods glory Science with out God no science without God no nothing .Sorry big bang is a theory. Evolution taught as fact is a theory to many missing pieces
There is room for evolution & God there has to be he created all things,Creation of earth and life
How it began once again a Theory no facts to back it up.
ALL taught as fact to me God is not only more intellectually sound than all of these theories
you will find God in his CREATION look and ponder you will see him in all things the more you think of the IMPOSSIBILITY of it all happening by accident
People who do not believe in the creator say science science science
Well science can exist with God because he made all things. The things that are explained by science are all incomplete because he leaves just enough to show himself.
Evolution yes things have evolved but it does not explain all things
there are to many missing evidences to many inconsistencies . The big Bang is a Theory
Why is it taught as fact?
The creation and how scientist "think" it all started always starts out with " we think this happen or we think this or that happen. Nothing EVER is fact all hypothesis,ALL might of and could of THEORIES .
And i am the one called crazy for not thinking this was some big accident lol

______________________________________________________________

I Thank God for my Family and all who support me
For my Church Family who continues to hold me accountable as a Godly Man and a Husband, & Father .
Thank you God for all you have done and continue to do in me and through me
Thank you for my Wife who you have placed in m life , For truly NO OTHER woman could fulfill and complete my life and understand me the way she does
Thank you for Being LORD over ALL above and below
ALL things are possible THROUGH CHRIST
MY LIFE was absolute
sorry but it is the truth any how
IT was absolute SHIT and now it is
MORE than i COULD HAVE EVER THOUGHT
THANK YOU GOD FOR ALL YOU DO you are WORTHY of ALL GLORY HONOR
& PRAISE

______________________________________________________________

Are you Willing to be vulnerable enough to expose yourself
& Speak of your faults your lows in order to CHANGE a LIFE ?
When you do
You have the POWER through your brokenness
To redirect someone else s destiny
Testify of what God has done for you
So another can also be FREE

______________________________________________________________

For God seeks you Chases you Calling you every chance he gets
Do you Hear him calling out to you
Trying to Connect with you?
To be Sought after Perused by the LIVING GOD is something Truly
To be Grasped
He wants to know YOU but he wants you to willingly want to know him
He does CARE he ALWAYS has & ALWAYS WILL
Talk to him He is waiting and willing To ANSWER ask him to come & he will COME

______________________________________________________________

A man that will not acknowledge the EVER PREVALENT sin
IN his life
Will NEVER be satisfied
Without the intervention of the one who comes
To take away the sin of the world
You will die 2 deaths one Spiritual the other Physical
For SIN leads to DEATH

______________________________________________________________

Shall God not send you through every trial NECESSARY in order to accomplish His WILL & PURPOSE ?
For God alone shall DO as he pleases in order to bring about
the best possible result.
Results you could NEVER conceive in all of your rational thinking.
But abundantly more when you EMBRACE these trials & consider them an HONOR to go through ,for such things will
CONFORM you closer to the image of CHRIST.
Blessed be the name of the LORD

______________________________________________________________

Be mindful what you place at the door of the LORD for it should not be all begging and pleading
For such things will be unexceptionable in abundance
But enter his courts with PRAISE & HONOR
For he is more Worthy than your mind can conceive
You MUST give your first fruits unto the LORD for you owe EVERYTHING to GOD
One Must place Honor,Glory & Praise at the door of the LORD
Before ALL and ABOVE ALL for God is the GREAT I AM & shall be treated as such

______________________________________________________________

Forgiveness is in fact a divine quality.
To release wrong doing and unjust suffering
to one undeserving ,in all our carnal ways is ludicrous on many levels.
But from the spiritual heart that bleeds forgiveness the soothing calm & peace that follows down to the inmost parts Is truly remarkable and one can only describe this phenomenon as being
a divine quality.

______________________________________________________________

DO NOT be held captive by the stupidity that may be found around you
Instead RESIST it & distance yourself from ALL stupidity around you
Or you may become like minded

______________________________________________________________

To know of God
For God to know ME is something to be CHERISHED & NURTURED
For not all know of HIM & his MAJESTY .
For it is not only an HONOR & BLESSING
To know such things it is a HIGH PRIVILEGE
One that should NEVER be taken LIGHTLY
For if not for GRACE i would still be LOST

______________________________________________________________

If you are living on a path to hell
You can be assured you are going to drag others along with you
Like wise if you are HEAVEN bound you should Bring others along with you

______________________________________________________________

The biggest investment you will ever make
Is putting ALL your stock in JESUS CHRIST
Your return will be fare richer than ANYTHING this world can offer you
For your stock will continue to rise all the way to the heavens

______________________________________________________________

For whom should you have to prove God is real to
For it is by Faith I know my God is real
One need NOT defend God for He IS God & He shall be known by Faith & Faith alone
My Proof lies in my deliverance
My proof is God has done what I was powerless against
That which was my Sin & giving me Victory in areas I could NOT have possibly done on my own.
Such as deliverance from my sexual abusive past & deliverance from pornography that held me CAPTIVE for over 9yrs ,Alcohol & drug abuse to no end using sex as means for satisfaction only with no other purpose
Trying to fill a void that can ONLY be FILLED by GOD & His Precious Holy Spirit
The proof is in my Faith for he has done great & might things
Through Faith by GRACE that is the ONLY proof one EVER needs
FAITH

______________________________________________________________

satan is going to make sure you are still in the fight
Be mindful of this
Walk in the NEWNESS of CHRIST
Why would you want to walk any other way

______________________________________________________________

One NEED NOT debate his or her Faith in JESUS CHRIST
For it is ONLY by FAITH one comes to know of THE KING
Faith to the unsaved carnal minded person is but foolish babble
Therefor FAITH in CHRIST is NOT debatable
Less you fall into the TRAP of the
CARNAL minded
FAITH can ONLY be grasped IN the Spiritual
NOT carnally debating ones Faith in Christ does harm not good
______________________________________________________________

Do NOT put your life in your own hands than make a mess of it
& Than Blame GOD
Instead EXAMINE yourself and GET TO WORK

______________________________________________________________

Face Fear & TRAMPLE it under your feet where it belongs
For you are NOT exercising the Power & Authority
Christ has given you to trample fear under your feet
For it is OVERCOMING the things you fear the most
These are exactly what God wants to showcase to put your fear on display
On the center stage for HIS GLORY and your FREEDOM

______________________________________________________________

Until you take up your Cross & Follow
CHRIST putting your FAITH into ACTION
You will continue to have doubt and never achieve
ALL you are called to be IN CHRIST JESUS

______________________________________________________________

Does your talk match your WALK
For MANY people talk a great talk
But their WALK is crippling
On the verge of Paralyses
If you want to have your talk to match your Walk
SEEK out TRUTH
The word of God
SEEK out THE LIFE
Obeying the Word of God
SEEK out THE WAY
JESUS CHRIST
Now Go live IT

____________________________________________________________

While I used to be deceived now I am RECEIVED & REDEEMED
No longer walking with darkness But walking IN the GLORIOUS LIGHT
The LIGHT of JESUS CHRIST
Who took my sins the very night I REPENTED
To LIVE IT and BREATH IT is to LIVE it DAILY no longer LIVING SHADY
But PRAISING my LORD AND SAVIOR
GRACIOUSLY

____________________________________________________________

You are to MAKE the name of JESUS CHRIST
FAMOUS
NOT your own name
EXALT CHRIST & HIS name
NOT SELF for this is SHAME not FAME

____________________________________________________________

Do NOT be satisfied with Sin
REPENT& let Him
IN
Be CLEANSED of ALL unrighteousness
Put to death the OLD and walk IN the NEWNESS
Of CHRIST

____________________________________________________________

Be mindful of your TALK and your WALK
For TODAY your TESTIMONY for CHRIST is GOING to CHANGE
For the Better or for the WORST
For you are NOT your OWN you ARE an
AMBASSADOR for CHRIST
Represent HIM Well

____________________________________________________________

All Praise All Glory All Honor All for My Lord and Savior
The King of Kings Jesus Christ
Thank You Lord For All Things for All You have done in my Life
For U are So So Worthy in fact there is not near enough time in a day to Praise you enough
My God My God how have you not forsaken me?
For i have been made useable for your glory
& What an Honor it is to be able to Serve the One and only LIVING GOD
I lift you up and Exalt you above all things
Thank you Thank You JESUS for your sacrifice
So I can Live

____________________________________________________________

Most of the time very little needs to be said
Because the ACTIONS themselves speak louder than words
EVER could

____________________________________________________________

The Lord knows your Heart
So there is no sense in trying to hide it
The Lord knows your mind
So there is no sense in trying to hide it
The Lord knows your sin
So there is no sense in trying to hide it
Stop hiding there is nowhere to hide anyway
For EVERYTHING done in the dark will be EXPOSED by the
Glorious LIGHT of CHRIST so bring all your darkness to the Lord
And he will make you A LIGHT for others to find their way in the DARK

____________________________________________________________

There are few things that should come upon you and overwhelm you
For you are to keep WATCH and be very VIGILANT
In doing so you will SEE the warning signs & perceive the RED FLAGS
& Either confront what needs confronting or avoid what should be avoided
The FAULT will be on YOU for NOT ACTING on what has been SHOWN to you
The only problem is that you IGNORED the MANY warnings

____________________________________________________________

No
TIME
For
EXCUSES
PLENTY
of
TIME
for
WORK
____________________________________________________________

At some point you SHOULD not just talk about the PROMISES of GOD
But you SHOULD
LIVE
IN the PROMISES of GOD

____________________________________________________________

When CHRIST is introduced INTO
The most hanis realms of your tragedy
It will pale in comparison to
THE CHRIST

____________________________________________________________

When your Christian
Brother or Sister
Falls
Do you EXTEND your HAND
or
Your FOOT ?

____________________________________________________________

When you DELAY the things you KNOW you should be taking care of
It only ALLOWS time for MORE OBSTACLES
To be PLACED before YOU
So get done TODAY what SHOULD be DONE TODAY

____________________________________________________________

You think you are being strong by hiding your pain
In Reality all you are doing is Burying the little pieces of YOURSELF
That need to be exposed so others can see
That being strong
REALLY means DEALING with your pain
NOT HIDING it

____________________________________________________________

Allthough you may have sorrows
You may rejoyce IN your HEART
Allthough you may be poor
You may SHARE the Riches of CHRIST
You may have few material things
But be FARE MORE wealthy being
ENDOWED with the Glorious Wonders
Of the Precious HOLY SPIRIT

____________________________________________________________

There are many things that will come upon you in the physical
That may be very painful
But spiritually these are things
That will take you to another spiritual level
Place EVERY problem into the LORDS care
For there is NOTHING that shall conquer you

____________________________________________________________

Many problems are within our control
They become out of our control
When we IGNORE all of the warning signs
____________________________________________________________

Although revenge by your own hands may be sweet for a time
Revenge by the hand of The Lord is peace
For a LIFETIME

____________________________________________________________

The LORD IS the SPIRIT ,for the LORD is found
In EVERYONE who confesses CHRIST as SAVIOR
& Walks instep with what HE commands of them.
For each person HE has a unique & perfect plan.
The Spirit inside you is THE LORD himself
Testifying to your heart HOW,WHEN,& WHERE.
Keeping instep with the Holy Spirit
Is the KEY to obeying our Holy God
For you are to be Holy for God is Holy.
It is the Holy Spirit that IS God inside you.
When you have The Spirit you have GOD .
ALL this ENABLES you to be Righteous
Before GOD

____________________________________________________________

NEVER allow your scars to Dictate your Future
If you do
REALIZE the problem lies not with your scars
But with your
INABILITY
To MOVE beyond the scars
LIVE for TODAY
Not your YESTERDAY

____________________________________________________________

The life that used to belong to ME
Now BELONGS to Jesus
Because in my hands I made a complete mess of it
Now life can be enjoyed Without all the pressure
My life used to be all about ME
Now it is all about CHRIST
& what HE
WANTS

____________________________________________________________

I remember the first time i got high at
That very moment i would become and addict
Because I never stopped getting high
That is until I found an EVERLASTING HIGH
NAMED JESUS CHRIST
Now I AM ADDICT TO HIS LOVE !!

____________________________________________________________

Faith in Christ is proof enough for me
The proof is in the deliverance
of having my Faith in CHRIST
The proof of CHRIST is my freedom from the bondage
I was once under
You may not ever understand my Faith
and or my deliverance Christ has brought me
ALL I can say is I would not have this Faith
If it did not DELIVER
Not only has it DELIVERED spiritually ,mentally,physically,financially
My Faith has enabled me to LIVE a HIGHER quality of life
The life I lived before was
Reeking of Death & Foul Filthy Living
I IMPLORE you to test
I IMPLORE you to taste
I IMPLORE you to KNOCK &SEEK
I promise you this YOU WILL FIND THE CHRIST
And when you do find him
You will live a higher quality of life
____________________________________________________________

I wish I could put into words the Power of the HOLY SPIRIT
But the truth is it will take an ETERNITY to even come within a galaxy
Trying to explain it's wisdom it's knowledge,it's guidance
The feeling of the Living GOD inside me is indescribable
O how I wish I could share this feeling inside me
To show others the wonders it produces inside , the unmistakable utterances
Of the sweet calm & soothing effect of it's whispers of peace and contentment
Even in the most uncomfortable positions life has in store for us
The Holy Spirit comes in and reminds me
WHO's I am & who GOD IS

____________________________________________________________

Really feeling the Love of God right now.
Just knowing even when things do not go
The way I thought they would go
God is in control
And ALL
Will work out for the good

____________________________________________________________

When something pops in your head that is NEGATIVE
HOLD it captive and CHOOSE to think
On PURPOSE with PURPOSE to DESTROY The thought
With either>

____________________________________________________________

The world will always EMBRACE you with ALL of its tempting and enticing ways
It is not Jesus the world hates
In fact it is the teachings of the CHRIST that SHINES a light on the worlds
Evil & SIN that the world hates
For it shows the world its TRUE condition


____________________________________________________________

There is only ONE that you can trust & it is most certainly NOT yourself
But the ONLY one you CAN trust is JESUS because he is the ONLY one worth trusting
You simply can not go wrong trusting him
Trusting in self is foolish


____________________________________________________________

Anyone who CHOOSES to do the will of God
Will indeed find out for themselves whether the teachings of Christ are in fact TRUTH
Why only sit back and question whether the Teachings are Truth
Choose to do the will of God in doing so the Truth will become ABUNDANTLY clear to you
For your eyes shall be opened to the sin of the world & you will begin to DESIRE to Want NO part of it.


____________________________________________________________

Hold on to Jesus TODAY because
He is Holding on to
YOU


____________________________________________________________

Be sure to hug your Wife & your Children today
Tell them how much you LOVE them and appreciate them
For tomorrow may not come tomorrow is not promised
Be thankful for having them Love them hug them
Even if you are upset at them
You would miss them dearly
Even if you did not have the chance to be upset with them Love on them NOW
Cause you never know when you will NOT have the chance to LOVE ON THEM


____________________________________________________________

Encourage you children to be who God would have them to be
Because if you DO NOT others will encourage them to be who the
WORLD would have them to be & if you ALLOW this to happen
It is on you not the WORLD


____________________________________________________________

Parents you are in charge of MOLDING a life
This should not be taken lightly this should not be done casually
IF you do this casually you will find that there is nothing casual
About failing generations that can all be linked back to you
Be the parents God calls you to be
Teach you children to behold the Glory of the Lord
And your Generations WILL BE BLESSED
NOT CURSED


____________________________________________________________


YOU probably did not even realize you where being used by GOD
Because the enemy will get us focus on the things we are not
Instead of the things that we are IN CHRIST JESUS
Always be mindful of this


____________________________________________________________

The Spirit of God Recreates & Converts the soul of a lost man or woman
The Veil of Deceit is torn away from ones eyes & you are finally able to See
The True condition of the world of Sin all around
Before this Miraculous work of God
One is only a Partaker of the sin he or she Indulges in
To be Born Again is to gain spiritual eyes only than will you be able to See sin
For what it is & want to turn away from it and embrace the new nature


____________________________________________________________

For many seek the Truth & many even find the Truth
The problem is not merely seeking & finding the Truth
No the problem there in lies in
OBEYING the Truth Submitting to the Truth
When one finds the TRUTH


____________________________________________________________

Man is deceitfully wicked in an unconverted state
But man REBORN with the SPIRIT of God shall TURN from DECEIT and shall
No longer be able to tolerate DECEITFUL WAYS
But ones heart becomes resolved upon DOING the WILL of God
No longer satisfied living DECEITFULLY but RIGHTEOUSLY


____________________________________________________________

Let your light shine for Christ today be a guide for the lost
If your not shining than you are not doing the will of the one who sent you to shine
Be a light before men so many will see that Jesus is alive and well in YOU !!


____________________________________________________________

It sure is hard LIVING the Gospel
But not nearly as hard as LIVING
WITHOUT IT


____________________________________________________________

There is so much work to be done on Self
Why are you so busy pointing out others faults
Maybe that is why you have so many of your own
Get to work on your own faults
And life
And stop worrying every one else's
Only than will PROGRESS be made


____________________________________________________________

Do not merely seek God so he will do for you
Seek God because he wants a relationship with you
Seek God because he is Almighty God
Do not merely seek God because you want things
Seek God because He LOVES you and CARES for YOU
God will provide for you God is not like us
He WILL DO what HE says He WILL DO


____________________________________________________________

When Christ is not EVERYTHING
I HAVE NOTHING
When Christ is not EVERYTHING
I am NOTHING
WHEN CHRIST is not EVERYTHING
There is NOTHING


____________________________________________________________

The one who has the bigger debt shall be overjoyed even more so than the one with a smaller debt
When the Master Jesus CANCELS the debt
This is why I am so filled with Joy & I am so THANKFUL
& proud to lift up the name of Jesus
For my sin debt was so GREAT
From Alcoholism,Addictions to drugs & Pornography,Lair,Thief,Drug dealer,
Having laid with both sexes in all my sexual confusion
From being molested,The debt was great and overwhelming Until I met my Savior & Lord Jesus Christ
Who CANCELED my sin debt so I could be FREE
From all of my SIN
So I stand before ALL men & woman free from my debt
You can to all you have to do is EXCEPT this precious GIFT from the MASTER JESUS you to can be FREE


____________________________________________________________

Christians have been intrusted by God to do a task
This task is to show a dying world that God is who he says he is
This should not be taken lightly
Think about it The Most High God has a job for you to do
Are you doing it ? If not you had better get to WORK


____________________________________________________________

God takes care of those who love him
He always supplies our needs according to HIS riches & Glory
For those that obey his will it seems as though he supplies & even greater
Measure of abundance
For we are Stewards of ALL God intrust
All we have belongs to God we are just STEWARDS
The better we Steward the more that is intrusted
If not it will be snatched away
And we will be forced to either learn to Steward better or go without until we
Have learned how to Steward what God has intrusted



____________________________________________________________

To be called by God to deliver his message is not only and Honor
But a Privilege to actually think that God has a job for US to do
Is almost Unfathomable & yet he chooses the lowly things to confound the wise
He uses people just like me to do HIS WILL
What an AWESOME
GOD
We SERVE



____________________________________________________________

StOP doing things your own way

Do things Gods way and you will not only be surprised at the outcome
You will wonder what took you so long to realize
That there is only ONE way to do things
And that way is God's way



____________________________________________________________


Give God Glory today
Be the Glory of God before Men
Shine



____________________________________________________________

Be about The Fathers Business
& EVERYTHING else
WILL
Fall into place



____________________________________________________________

Show Mercy today
Because Mercy has been
RENEWED & shown to you
Give Grace today
Because Grace has been
&
Will be given to you THROUGHOUT today
Allow the Fruit of the Spirit to WORK in your life
TODAY now GO
and BE FRUITFUL



____________________________________________________________

Do the JESUS thing
NOT
The
me thing



____________________________________________________________


When you allow God to do what only God can do
The impossible things in your rational realm
Not only become possible they become
REALITY

____________________________________________________________

I used to have my own trinity
me myself & I
Now I have
THE TRINITY
Father Son & Holy Spirit
I thank God for this



____________________________________________________________

The COST of Following CHRIST
Is very GREAT
But the RETURN is
Unprecedented



____________________________________________________________

Even though being a Christian is very hard
And must be worked on Daily
It IS
The most Worthy cause
One can undertake



____________________________________________________________

The More you Give of yourself to Others
What you have
These are the things they may be lacking
And you will be Blessed with more
So that you may be able to continue to do even Greater things



____________________________________________________________

Reading The Word of GOD
Is to swim in infinite Wisdom
Every word & every verse
Filled with more Wisdom from ON HIGH than we could ever begin to grasp
With our realm of reality
But Spiritually Discerned
It is Magnificent



____________________________________________________________

JESUS was homeless
Look at ALL He has ALLOWED Us to have in our lives
He GAVE us MORE than He gave HIMSELF
There seems to be a recurring theme with JESUS
JESUS Gave More of HIMSELF and More to OTHERS
So why are we tripping ?
BE GRATEFUL for ALL HE has GIVEN



____________________________________________________________
You were not made to do your own thing

You were made to do Godly things
For Him by Him Through Him
STOP living life as if you are your own god
You BELONG to the MOST HIGH GOD
Bought with the precious blood of CHRIST
Live for God's Glory
Not you own glory



____________________________________________________________

You will NEVER be satisfied living for self
You will never be Filled living in self
Fulness is only found IN CHRIST JESUS



____________________________________________________________

THE SON brings nourishment to my bones
THE SON brings fourth Light that overcomes darkness
THE SON Shines in the heart cleansing it from all unrighteousness
THE SON CHRIST JESUS brings LIGHT into ones life


____________________________________________________________

Lay The Cornerstone Christ the Foundation
And begin to Build with the tools
THE HOLY SPIRIT provides
Let CHRIST be the Architect of your Life
And you will be amazed what will be built



____________________________________________________________

Answer the High Call God has on your life
Do not simply ignore the Call as if you have spiritual caller I.D.
Answer the High Call God has on your life
God is persistent He will keep Calling You Stop ignoring Him
He is calling for a reason God has plans he needs accomplished through you
Answer the Call !!



____________________________________________________________

CHRIST is Power
CHRIST breaks chains
And sets you Free from ANY bondage
Many are free & yet stay inside the cage of Guilt & Shame or Fear
But I declare through the POWER & The Blood of Christ
Come forth & Walk in VICTORY

____________________________________________________________

If you are holding on to the things of your past
You will never be able to move forward into your future
The pain your past has caused you can be set free by Christ
Your carnal mind wants to hold on to the past
The Holy Spirit will ENABLE you to be set free

____________________________________________________________
You must Never be comfortable
Always moving always growing if you are not moving you are growing stagnant
If you are not growing you are dying
Never halt your progress there is ALWAYS something to be learning
When you do learn allow the Holy Spirit to interpret the knowledge into WISDOM
Without Wisdom the knowledge can only take you so far
But with The Holy Spirit turning the knowledge into WISDOM you will NEVER FAIL

____________________________________________________________

ALL of YOUR bad choices can be chalked up to being carnal minded
The Holy Spirit when consulted FIRST will never lead you down the wrong road
The Holy Spirit is PERFECTION in your ear
Get out of the carnal and LIVE in THE SPIRIT
AND you will NEVER make a bad choice
Be SPIRIT led not led by SELF we are an imperfect people with out the SPIRIT
With THE HOLY SPIRIT you are PERFECT

____________________________________________________________

The unconverted man will try EVERYTHING except God
The Converted man will Do EVERYTHING to except God
You must be born again in order to except the things of God
Otherwise you will continue to fail in your own strength
____________________________________________________________

There is not power in your name
There is Power in but ONE name & that name is
JESUS
Claim this and you may be allowed access to This POWER

____________________________________________________________

Only when you admit you weaknesses
Can you begin the journey to Strengthen them
If you can not First admit them than they do not exist
At least this is what you have to repeat to yourself over & over again
Admit your weaknesses than begin the process of strengthening your weaknesses
Through the POWER of CHRIST & your weakness will become Mighty IN THE LORD

____________________________________________________________

Savior : a person who saves, rescues, or delivers:
JESUS CHRIST is my SAVIOR
He saved me from myself
He rescued me from my sin
He Delivered me from Drugs,Alcohol,Pornography,,Childhood sexual abusive past,Drug dealing,smoking ............. and continues to deliver me daily
IF he did all this for me IMAGINE what he WILL do for YOU !!!
____________________________________________________________

If JESUS CHRIST is number 1 in your life
This could explain why you are failing in so many areas in your life
Because JESUS should not just be number 1 in your life
JESUS CHRIST SHOULD BE YOUR LIFE

____________________________________________________________

I love how unconverted people LOVE to talk about how "good" they are
I am a good person I do not do this or that
I do not need God
REALLY !!! Lets take all your thoughts and UNSEEN DEEDS which by the way you would be ashamed to even speak of let alone tell someone.
And put them on dvd and play it on a screen in front of all your family friends and co workers
We will see how "good "of a person you are
WE all sin and fall short of the GLORY of God that is why we need a SAVIOR this is why being "good" will not cut it
____________________________________________________________

We are because HE IS
He is because HE ALWAYS HAS BEEN
He ALWAYS HAS BEEN because HE ALWAYS WILL BE
He ALWAYS WILL BE because HE SIMPLY JUST IS
There is NOTHING in which to COMPARE HIM TO
HE IS THE GREAT
I AM

____________________________________________________________

When we are Broken we are able to hear God more clearly
Broken over death Broken over sorrow Broken over Sin or any Broken state
We hear God more clearly because we are listening
In our Brokenness we tend to search God out and He Loves this
The fact that we are in a position to RECEIVE him
Self is out of the way so he can Come IN and be heard He can finally be Beckoned
The fact of the matter is we do not have to be broken to hear him
But this is our most vulnerable state for God Loves a broken & contrite Heart this is why

____________________________________________________________

When you allow God to merge with the hurt and the pain of life
It is transformed into a beautiful collision
A collision if allowed can transform your whole life
Pain into Joy Hurt into Peace
A once sad story into Redemption and Victory

____________________________________________________________

Every person is at a different place int their life
You have NO idea what a work God is doing within someones heart
This is why it is so important NEVER to Judge someone
Because even though on the outside it may appear God is not at work
He is doing A MARVELOUS work in the heart
Judge NOT less you Be JUDGED
Christians really need to pay attention to this we are doing more damage
Trying to do the work of what ONLY HOLY SPIRIT can do and that is CHANGE People
God will change at his pace not our own preconceived pace at which WE think someone should be growing
It ALL STARTS IN THE MIRROR if you allow God to change YOU than others will
SEE the change and by your EXAMPLE of a Godly man or woman
They will want what God has so GRACIOUSLY GIVEN YOU and that is GRACE in the midst of the TRANSITION

____________________________________________________________

The same Majesty that created the Heavens & the earth
Lives inside You & i
I wish i could explain to those who no not of This Majesty
That this power & this Light can be unleashed inside and out of ones very being
We have so much power through this Majesty of Heaven & yet so many choose
To live beneath their means if You only began to realize you have
The same Majesty inside of You that created the Heavens and ALL below
You would be able to access it and allow it to blossom into something beautiful

____________________________________________________________

Christ is FAITHFUL & JUST
He will not make you endure more than you can bear
Refinement and Purity is HIS mission ALL things endured for purpose
With Intent to improve righteousness through this process
The end result is PERFECTION Let your Spiritual begin to grasp this
And begin to walk with EXPECTATION of DELIVERANCE this can NOT be obtained in
The Natural or the Carnal know there are other forces at work against you
Choose the Spirit and live by The Spirit and you will OVERCOME

____________________________________________________________

When you are a child of THE MOST HIGH GOD
It becomes a CHOICE whether or not you are
A Blessing or a Curse in someones life
ALWAYS be mindful of this CHOOSE
To be a Blessing not a Curse Choose to be
A LIGHT not darkness & YOU will stay Blessed

____________________________________________________________

The Lord stretches forth his hand & tells the sea how far to go
& says do not go beyond this point & it obeys He tells the sun where to shine
& it obeys The Lord God who created ALL that you see calls out and beckons YOU
To COME & you with pride as small as dust
Unto THE LORD
But big enough to swallow you up in death
Refuse & say "NO"!! i will NOT come for i am my own god
YOU WILL reap what you sow unless you turn from this detestable sin before
THE LORD GOD

____________________________________________________________

This life is one that GOD created and is the Author of
So why do we being the created treat life as if it was ours to control
We are here By God For God until His Life that HE created is placed into HIS control
THE life that Truly belongs to Him will never make sense to you

____________________________________________________________

Do NOT praise the messenger for the POWER comes from the message
And the Message from God so the Glory Goes to God who sends the message
Not the messenger

____________________________________________________________
Thank you Lord God for your sacrifice
Because He died I now can live and walk in Freedom from sin
Death has NO sting there is no worry or Fear of Death
Because Death has been Conquered I shall live Eternally with the SAVIOR JESUS
Thank you For the Blood of Christ HE IS RISEN INDEED
He is ALIVE & well living IN ME I shall live forever because CHRIST DIED
AND HAS RISEN to Conquer sin and death Forever PRAISE BE TO GOD
FOR HE IS TRULY LORD OF LORDS AND KING OF KINGS

____________________________________________________________

There are to many people ACTING like Christians
There needs to be more Christians in ACTION

____________________________________________________________

If people are not able to recognize the Jesus IN you
Than it is time for self examination ,Find out Why
People should be able to tell even if they do not no what "IT" is
The "It" should be available for all to see
We are representing THE MOST HIGH GOD on earth
What an Honor and a Privilege this is Be about The Fathers business
And ALL will no who you are and WHO's you are

____________________________________________________________

Do NOT be puffed up in your own mind about yourself
Because you WILL be Humbled & brought back to Reality
Instead Stay Humble & you shall not have to be Humbled

____________________________________________________________

Arrange your Life around God & His agenda
Instead of miserably trying to fix God into your own schedule
And you will be Blessed Greatly

____________________________________________________________

Put before your steps & deeds
God
Than proceed with his commands
And you will do right before THE LORD and before men

____________________________________________________________

Some task can not be completed with out HELP so it is for a man who has a wife
With out the Wife the man is incomplete and can not carry out the task of being the Husband God designed
Woman are not less than a man and should not be viewed as such for with out them man could not achieve his duties
"And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone I will make him a HELPER suitable for him"

____________________________________________________________

When you are obedient to the Lord & his good and perfect will it is an impossibility for him not to open the heavens to pour out blessings almost unspeakable
If somehow you do not Believe me test Almighty GOD in this matter he is Not fickle like man he will do as he says
I am living proof of this

____________________________________________________________

When you are obedient to the Lord & his good and perfect will it is an impossibility for him not to open the heavens to pour out blessings almost unspeakable UPON YOU
If somehow you do not Believe me test Almighty GOD in this matter he is Not fickle like
man he will do as he says
I am living proof of this
I tested and I continue to Receive ALL the Promises God has for Those who Follow & Obey

Some really good stuff this week put it in your life some is hard I know it struck me hard but this stuff is real folks in love i hope you receive I know this is going to speak to someone your flesh will reject but ask yourself at the end of the day is it true self pity is only a sign that work needs to be done







Christians it is time to step it up
There is to much inspiration and not enough application
Inspiration can only take you so far
you need to apply what you learn
Than after application there will be Transformation
Take inventory of your life figure out why you are not LIVING in the newness of CHRIST
The enemies plan is to make sure you do not reach the potential God would have you
To be living at start applying the word of God in you life and be Transformed

____________________________________________________________


If you are not teaching your children to walk upright and the fear of The Lord
than do not be complaining when they grow up to be heathens
Teach and train a child in the way they should go and when they are older they will not depart from it

____________________________________________________________

Great bible study in proverbs with the Fam tonight
lots of questions and lots of answers that is what i am talking about
If you are not having bible studies with your kids and teaching them and instructing them in the word of
God you are missing out and if you are a Father and Husband and you are not leading your family as God commands Fathers than step your game up
It is the Truth anyhow don't get mad do what you were called to do !!
the world will gladly teach them but it will not be biblical and it will not be for their benefit

____________________________________________________________

Man I Love being a Husband and a Father it is the GREATEST !!!

____________________________________________________________
How long will we continue to live within the walls of our own self-willed self-limited little world’s?
how many people have to continue suffering because we refuse to stop making life about us
instead of the precious will of God
This life is bigger than you, so far bigger then we allow ourselves to imagine
limiting the power of the Holy Spirit and the nature of God within ourselves, quenching the Spirit
to hold tight to our own emotional feelings and even our thoughts
The Holy Spirit when unleashed allows you to live above the natural
to go so far beyond what our limited selves can comprehend This is why you can recognize the greatness in some people that greatness is the Holy Spirit
People allow their circumstances and situations feeling and emotions to dictate their lives
once again making everything about self
instead of wholeheartedly relying on the spirit of the most High God
who knew you before he even made you
When you began to wrap your mind around that statement you can catch a tiny glimpse of the scope of God
not to be limited by any means because for every single glimpse of his greatness, and holiness, his Majesty is extended even further.

____________________________________________________________

I Love your soul even if i may not particularly like you
I do however Love your soul
Why because God made you
He made me and
I care enough to tell you about the Glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ
And His Saving Grace because I worry about your soul being condemned
For your sins Separated from our most Holy God
But He Loves your Soul He yearns for you to Repent & Turn from sin
And turn to Him for GRACE

____________________________________________________________

Most people question God and blame God for things in our own control
Why we ask God why this and why that
He being God has to be heart broken
Because He is asking the same questions He gives us EVERYTHING we need to OVERCOME
but so many complain all the time and yet do nothing about the very things they are complaining about
God has equipped all of us with what we need to Overcome no matter what the circumstance or situation
We are the ones making a mess of everything Holy and Sacred and only after we have made such a mess of things
do we want to ask God to come fix it or even choose to acknowledge Him
if we stop putting ourselves first and turn from our sin and repent He would Heal our land and us He is waiting

____________________________________________________________


When the TRUTH is no longer excepted as TRUTH
Than the Gospel dies
This is what happens when we Allow COMPROMISE to come in

____________________________________________________________

Live for the satisfaction of Christ
NOT
The satisfaction of man or self

____________________________________________________________

It is not" your a Christian you need to act like one"
No it is if your ARE a Christian BE a Christian
Acting is deceit

____________________________________________________________

If you are not IN CHRIST
You are IN self
Or in the grip of the enemy

____________________________________________________________

God will let you run your own life
But Life runs a lot smoother when the creator of Life
Is running it

____________________________________________________________

Put ALL of your Trust in God's hands
Put NONE in your own
Than the Supernatural will occur

____________________________________________________________

There is no such thing as a Big problem for God
Only lack of Faith on your part
All our problems are little to our Big God

____________________________________________________________

Self pity is only a SIGN
That WORK
NEEDS
To be DONE

____________________________________________________________


Do you measure your life measured to your standard
There is only ONE standard to measure up to and that is
Christ even though we fall short of this standard at least we are aiming for
Perfection


____________________________________________________________

IF Christ truly lives in you
There WILL be supernatural Evidence
There WILL be supernatural happenings in your life
If not you need to find out why
Because THE HOLY SPIRIT is supernatural and your life should show it


____________________________________________________________

Truly it is a SUPERNATURAL work of THE HOLY SPIRIT
When one gets SAVED
When the Eyes have been opened and you begin to see the world
For what it really is
Think about it before you were saved you could not possibly SEE
What you now SEE


____________________________________________________________

The Power of God is Within YOU
So why do you Not exercise its Power
You are FREE from your past so walk into the newness of CHRIST
The New life that comes with it
The chains are Broken so walk OUT of the prison of your past
The door has been OPENED it is up to you to Walk OUT


____________________________________________________________

Love God NOT the world for He has called us ALL to be set apart
Where others go You CAN NOT what others do You CAN NOT
How will those still in the dark be able to see without a light
How can You be a light if You are also in the dark
Come OUT of the dark world & be the light You were Created to be


____________________________________________________________

JESUS displayed his Love
His ultimate display of Love was on the cross
I stand completely amazed at this display of Love
Now the expectation to display this Great Love is on US
We are to display this Love to the world
Display the Love of CHRIST daily


____________________________________________________________

Guard your tongue do not act as if you have no Restraint
For you are able to guard it while in church & other places
Where high character is expected
Now be without Excuse and guard your tongue
People are not only watching they are listening
You Represent CHRIST everywhere you go


____________________________________________________________

Stay built up in your most Holy Faith
For the attacks are Many
The wicked are abounding keep the armor of God Polished
Always ready to do battle
For we ARE soldiers in God's army
Do Not go to battle without your armor



____________________________________________________________

Do not blame others for your troubles
This maybe part of the reason you have so many
To much time blaming others not enough time
TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS taking RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS
In other words take care of your problems or they will CONTINUE to take care of
YOU !!!

____________________________________________________________

When you get to the point were you are at the end of SELF
It is at the very moment that God can begin to work in your life
If you allow him to
The end of self is the beginning of something beautiful


____________________________________________________________

The Kingdom comes through us we are to allow God to use us
To help Build the Kingdom of God
Thy Kingdom come thy will be done His will is to use us on earth
To build His Kingdom we are not here to build out own little kingdoms
If you are doing this STOP IT !! Be about our Father who is in Heaven's business
HE is waiting on us to build the Kingdom so HIS WILL will be done as it is in HEAVEN


____________________________________________________________


We can only take things so far before we realize
That God has to take it the rest of the way
This is by design we are to be a living sacrifice holy and pleasing to our Lord
When we sacrifice our own wants and needs and replace them with
His wants and needs our lives become effective in so many ways
Be a living sacrifice than be amazed at the results


____________________________________________________________

I find it quite amusing that some claim there is no God
When all the while they have Conviction of their sin
Why else would one go to such lengths to Hide what is done in the dark?
Why not do what is done in the dark in the sight of all
I tell you it is because you hide your sin because there is shame & guilt from the sin
Repent & Confess Jesus as Savior be forgiven of ALL sin or Continue to live a lie
That there is no just God who will come to cleanse the world of sin


____________________________________________________________

Are you sowing good seed love,peace,kindness,mercy
For you will yield much fruit from what you sow good or bad
Are you sowing bad seed hatred,drunkenness,drugging,sexual immorality
Than upon such things you will reap what you have sown
If you do not believe me all you have to do is examine the fruit of your ways


____________________________________________________________

It is Not that God is not big enough
It is just that you have Not Allowed God
To be big in your life
We put limits on God ourselves


____________________________________________________________

Hey peeps just wanted to say just because I put this this stuff on facebook
does not make me any less a sinner
than anyone I am a sinner SAVED by GRACE
and I know it I just like to share what the Spirit puts on my heart


____________________________________________________________

One thing we can predict about God is HE if faithful in ALL his Promises
Other than that He is pretty unpredictable


____________________________________________________________

With so many false ministries and false teachings
People are beginning to embrace this prosperity gospel
This is NO gospel at all you do not need material things in order to be blessed
Everyday is not a Friday and You will face many trials to build up your most Holy Faith
So even if material things are not a reality you are blessed by default because
The one who blesses lives in you making you blessed by default
All you need is Jesus Christ in your life to be Blessed not material things


____________________________________________________________

For God has written the laws on mans Heart & Mind
Therefor giving No one the excuse of right from wrong
For you need not teach that stealing is a sin for the Lord convicts & you know
You have stolen so let No one say I know not of God
For he has sent His Spirit to convict the world of sin
Anyone who Chooses not to acknowledge The Spirit will Not escape His
Coming Wrath repent of your sin acknowledge and embrace TRUTH & be SAVED


____________________________________________________________

Lets keep it biblical people
We represent The King
We are royalty so make sure you got your your armor on


____________________________________________________________

Most people pursue the wrong things to break free of addictions
Books, psychologist ,rehab , the pursuit of healing much is made of these things
These become IDOLS these are not the answer
Much needs to made of CHRIST pursue CHRIST
Draw near to HIM and He will draw near to you
Pursue JESUS CHRIST and he will deliver you stop pursuing IDOLS

____________________________________________________________

I love to see you work in light of what people think they know
I love to see you work and weave through time intertwining lives
For it is the very foolish things that confound the wise
in only a way that you could work
Pride built up with the highest of walls but knowing it is only a matter of time before you work on the crumbling of of it all
For I love to see you work
Through pain & hurt from the hands of mans hands
I love to see you work and never skip a beat
You have given a way to meet through the very things that have broken us and work a way to be whole again from the hands of man
O how I Love to see you work feel your work
The work can be done without our effort
The the work gets done faster when we work together

____________________________________________________________

The interconnectedness of our lives is truly something to behold
Things working behind the scenes Relationships formed
On all different levels all walks of life Brought into connection with one another
Intertwining souls with the power so strong as to change the direction of ones life
With purpose from flames & the pits of life into the newness of Christ
Helping one into transformation from the old into the new
To be used by God for Him for humanity
This is truly truly humbling


____________________________________________________________

Lay down self
Walk In the Holy Spirit
The two can not walk together
The Spirit is to Lead according to the Will of The Father
The the will of self leads to more self
The Will of God leads to Blessing and Peace

____________________________________________________________

Do Not pursue freedom from addictions
Pursue Christ and you will be freed from additions
Do Not pursue freedom from worldly things
Pursue Christ and He will purge the worldly things out of you
People pursue all the wrong things first and than they pursue Christ
Pursue Christ In ALL things continually and everything else will fall into place

____________________________________________________________


I used to be a Drunkard
Now I am sober
I used to sell & do drugs
Now I am drug free and work hard
I used to be a victim of sexual abuse
Now I have Victory over my abuse
I used to feel worthless
Now am a Child of the Most High God and Worthy
Forget the used to Be's and live for your Future In CHRIST JESUS
If he can do it for me he can do it for ANYBODY !!

____________________________________________________________

Wanna no how to make Jesus laugh ?
tell him "YOUR" PLAN

____________________________________________________________

The pursuit of Christ will end in Joy
Pursue Christ and the promises will follow
Do not focus on hardship or trials
Focus on Christ for he is the deliverer
Focus on Christ and you shall not loose do not be discouraged
But rejoice always for IN CHRIST you shall be able to do
ALL things THROUGH HIM Who WILL strengthen you

____________________________________________________________

It is Through CHRIST alone you will be Victorious
It is Through CHRIST alone you can Overcome
To Gain CHRIST is EVERYTHING all else is futile
The CHRIST can and will Deliver
His promises are many He is Faithful in ALL of them
People fail Christ can NOT fail for He promises Never to
Leave or Forsake you but DELIVER you from Evil
Those who Diligently SEEK Him will be Rewarded

____________________________________________________________

If you have tried Everything to satisfy yourself
And still keep coming up Empty
The void your trying to fill can only be FILLED by
JESUS CHRIST who died so you can Live and Live life Abundant
Stop pursuing all the worldly things that have Empty promises
Pursue Jesus and He promises Never to leave you empty

____________________________________________________________

We are but a vapor that appears for a moment like a mist
Right your Wrongs for you never no when one will disappear
Life truly is to short to live it your own way
Make the most of it God has a plan for your life
Live that life to the fullest than there will be No Regrets

____________________________________________________________

Put Everything in God's hands
Because you already no in your own hands there is bound to be trouble
Lean not to your own understanding because it is always skewed
In ALL your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path
Why would you try to direct your own path it is full of strife
But God's path is leading you toward righteousness and perfection

____________________________________________________________

Ask yourself this Very Serious Question
Are you building the Kingdom Of God ?
OR
Are you being Used to Destroy it ?

____________________________________________________________

When you allow others in your midst to have access to your life
Your inner workings the things that have indeed made you the person you are today
The world gets a little bit stronger bonds are formed and others find out
That we are not so different after all in fact the same struggles are felt
Regardless of race ,religion,or orientation the same fears anxieties and misfortunes
Are more common than you might of thought so share Your journey share Your
Testimony allow access to your life to others and in doing so you will make others stronger

____________________________________________________________

God has been doing such a work all around me lately
It is truly a blessing to be able to be a blessing in someones life
God can use you to literally change the path of someones life
This is something to behold and take in
Life is NOT about ourselves it is so much BIGGER than you and I it is about helping others
Reach and find their God abilities their God potential
Allow God to use you to build The Kingdom
Not the enemy to destroy it

____________________________________________________________

The very things in this life that u say have broken you
Are not the things that define you
These things break open the full potential within yourself
That u otherwise would have never been able to discover
Now that u have been broken You are now in the position to
UNEQUIVOCALLY KNOW YOU CAN HANDLE ANYTHING
EVEN SUCCESS

____________________________________________________________

When you reach the End of self
This is the beginning of positioning yourself in the only place
God can begin to work in your life

____________________________________________________________

God has given EVERYONE a platform called Life
What we do with this platform either builds up
or
Tears down
So ask what are you doing with the platform God has given you?
And if you do not like the answer you can start today
Using this Platform to build up not only yourself but others as well

____________________________________________________________

In the spirit the truth is always discovered but not always embraced
When embraced and grasped it overtakes darkness and denial
When this occurs freedom is found chains are broken and newness in Christ is found



____________________________________________________________

Cling to Christ not material things


____________________________________________________________

Being a Father is such an Awesome experience
I have no idea how people can take it so lightly
It is an honor and a privilege to have the Gift of a child



____________________________________________________________


Do Not use Gods gifts to glorify self
Give Glory where it is due
All Glory All Honor All Power belongs to
God not self with out God self does not exist
Therefore give God All the Glory never self



____________________________________________________________

Love your neighbor as you love yourself
If you do not love yourself
Than
Do not go and try to love your neihbor
Because if you do not love yourself than you will not love your neihbor the right way



____________________________________________________________



Get mature in the word of God
So he can use you to help others mature



____________________________________________________________


If Jesus is not Lord of your life than he is just an accessory to your life
If Jesus is an accessory to your life than you have not Jesus
You have a made up God that lives in your head and not in your Heart
Jesus is to be Lord of your life living within
Outwardly shown by your conduct by your speech building up not tearing down


____________________________________________________________


How in the world can you say
"I can do ALL things Through Christ which strengthens me"
Than fall to pieces when trials come upon you
This should not be the case
If it is it is time to reevaluate your relationship with Christ
The same things that break others should only be a test to you
The same things that shatter others should only make you stronger
Christians can NOT be average otherwise what is the point ?
The world needs to see True Christians not wannabe Christian


____________________________________________________________

When Truth is Embraced and Not rejected
Healing can begin in that area
Truth should be Embraced Not shunned
When Truth is shunned growth is Stunted


____________________________________________________________


The Truth is like a knife cutting into ones conscious heart
After the Truth is spoken one has an option to either except the Truth And allow Change to begin
or to wallow in self Pity and allow the wound to Never Heal always picking at the scab allowing the bleeding to continue never evolving
Except Truth let it penetrate your conscious heart and make the necessary Changes to your life Truth is calling for


____________________________________________________________


In all life's situations and circumstances that arise
I do not see how people try to go at it without Christ
With Christ it is easier without him it feels hopeless


____________________________________________________________

Can you praise God in the midst of the storm
The same as if there were none
When you can praise God in the bad times the same as the good
You are growing this is what he wants from All of us
This is the direction he is leading us


____________________________________________________________


Do no believe the Lie that things will always be the way they are
This is a Lie the Truth is
You can do ALL things through Christ
Through Christ you Can do
You Will do
Through Christ things can Absolutely change



____________________________________________________________




Life is to be spent helping others serving others
Life is not about your own little kingdom
Life is so much bigger than just you
With so many hurting people in this world
There are plenty of chances to help those around you



____________________________________________________________


In this life you Must learn to walk With GOD
Do not try to walk it alone
This life was not meant to walk it alone
Learn to walk With God
Not away from Him


____________________________________________________________


The Spirit of God NEVER wants to do wrong
The flesh does not want to do Good
For the Spirit of God is to lead us and guide us
Into something good into something righteous
The flesh cries out for the foul things of this world
Be Spirit led not by the flesh


____________________________________________________________

The more you Grow In CHRIST
The more you can LIVE
LIFE

These are my latest Facebook post for the past week
Disclaimer

Be warned you may be inspired by what you read . you may get offended & if that is the case
let me apologize right now because that is not and will never be my intent. My post are meant for reflection & self examination. If you do not agree with my post or my faith that is fine everyone is at a different place in their life & also has the right to believe in what they want . I will not argue or debate i just want to share what i feel the holy spirit directs me to write. If you feel it is not for you than that is just fine but if it touches you and causes you to reflect and take inventory of your life that is also great . I also believe god gives us all we need to overcome our situations & circumstances He gives us all we need to accomplish this . It is up to us to do the work. i always try to be honest & come with the truth and yes it hurts sometimes so brace yourself . if you can not handle it than stop now
and turn back. if you disagree with it that is fine feel free to make your own thread please do not read if
you do not take into consideration what this disclaimer explains . now it is on you . peace & blessings and may you be blessed and inspired to go to work




____________________________________________________________

You know about The marvel of God
But do you Marvel at The Fact
He IS God


____________________________________________________________

If you stop making Everything about you
& make Everything about Christ
Your whole life Will Change
NOT by your power & might but because
God's Grace & Mercies


____________________________________________________________

No one can make you angry
No one can make you sin
They are only revealing what is in your heart
This is why we Need CHRIST
This is why Blood was NEEDED to cover sin
Not just any Blood but the Blood of GOD


____________________________________________________________

The world is steadily trying to replace sin with psychology
Thus depleting the need for a savior THE CHRIST
For if there is only Justification for Gods divinely given moral GPS
Called right from wrong sin and Truth
Than the world will eventually become unredeemable
Leaving CHRIST no other option but to come


____________________________________________________________

Your spouse is your Idle tracker
Revealing what it is
&
How much time you spend with it


____________________________________________________________

The recognition of sin is diminishing
Taking morals integrity and character with it
Wrong is Wrong
Sin is Sin
God is Still God
Whether we allow this travesty to occur or not
Justice is still coming Regardless


____________________________________________________________

It would have been just and right
To completely distance yourself from us
But your GRACE has brought us Together Forever
Through your son THE CHRIST
Thank you


____________________________________________________________

God
IS
Holy
We are
Not
But Through Christ we can stand in his Presence
Without Christ this is not a possibility


____________________________________________________________

Life is special even through the ups and downs
Friendships formed bonds connected
People come in and out of life all with purpose all with meaning
Paths crossed divinely at specific times and dates
Life is a special magical thing enjoy it embrace it
Help someone else that is is what life is about


____________________________________________________________

All through the bible God does things we would not do
He says things we would not say
God is so Mighty and Great God IS JUSTICE
There will be Justice for our sin
God's Love is so special God's Love is so Final there is no love like it
Perfect Love willing to do ANYTHING to show this Love Christ is Perfection
Christ Died so we could understand this Perfect Love
God is Perfection His Mercy Perfect
HIS GRACE unbelievably PERFECT


___________________________________________________________


God will show himself to the Humble
This is a beautiful thing that one must be Humble to go before The God of the Universe
God will only reveal himself to the Humble therefor be Humble
Is He not Worthy ? Yes indeed He is worthy be glad the creator Reveals himself to ANYONE who humbles himself
What a privilege to know God
What a privilege To be in fellowship With God
He loves You He longs to have fellowship with You
DAILY






____________________________________________________________

When we sin we sin against God
FIRST & FOREMOST this alone should LEAD us to repent to HIM
Than the one we sinned against on this earth plain
Asking for forgiveness from him or her
NOT because we offended them but because we have offended
Our GREAT & HOLY GOD First


____________________________________________________________

I am not religious
I do have Faith in God
There is a Big Difference
Religion will not stand the test
Faith Will


____________________________________________________________

Although Salvation is FREELY given
It comes with a price
Salvation WILL cost you
It will cost you EVERYTHING
It will cost you your LIFE


____________________________________________________________

Give God ALL the Glory Today
For God is Worthy
You are blessed beyond measure
You are breathing You have food You have All you need
Maybe not all you want but defiantly ALL you need
Give God ALL the Glory for He is Worthy of ALL OUR PRAISES


____________________________________________________________

Days are precious make them count
There will be people waiting for YOU to be there at their crossroads
People you have not even met yet
NEVERTHELESS they will be there ready to make a life changing decision
The question is will you have done the Necessary work in your own life
To LEAD & GUIDE them down the Right path?
This life is BIGGER than you
God has a plan Embrace it and make a difference in this world


____________________________________________________________

You can NOT possibly begin to WORK on the problems in your life
Until you first and foremost Admit them
When you Admit your problems
Than you Acknowledge them
When you Acknowledge them than you can Begin to WORK on them
Knowing them and Admitting them are Different
You can know about your problems all you want
But until YOU Admit that you Have them
It is like they do Not exist


____________________________________________________________

People spend a lot of time trying to find things through books and self help material
But i tell you that If Christ be lifted up
HE will DRAW all men unto him , seek and you will find Much needs to be made of CHRIST
When people pursue Christ they will find ALL they are needing
Much needs to made of Christ seek him and keep seeking him When we seek freedom from things these things become our idles
Seek Christ not freedom from things
Anything that is exalted above Christ is an idle
That is even the pursuit of healing
Your pursuit needs to be Christ and the healing will follow Pursue Christ and you will be healed
Pursue Christ and you will ultimately be set free of what ever you need deliverance from




________________________________________________________

Your POWER comes The Father
The same as JESUS got his POWER from The Father
Jesus knew who he was in The Father
Just as We have to no who we are IN The Father
No your place & do NOT come out of it
Our place is IN The Father
This is where YOUR POWER comes from


____________________________________________________________

Everything Jesus had came from the Father
We have all that Jesus had when we are connected to The Father
Everything you need you already have through the Power of the HOLY SPIRIT
You just have to Claim it and access it


____________________________________________________________

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD
the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts"


Wow God is perfection and i am not
His mercies His Justice is Perfection and i am not
So of course God is going to do things that we can not grasp
People say all the time God would not do this or that
But really how could you know he would not do exactly the things that we would not do because He is perfection and we are not
His thoughts His ways are NOT our ways
Therefor He can and will do things we think he should not do
Because we are not perfect
He is
He knows far greater the consequences both good and bad
For OUR benefit
So I say Lord Have your way with me
Have your way
I surrender to your Perfection
Because i am not


____________________________________________________________

Man will never be able to comprehend just how powerful the human brain is.
We only no about 10 % of how our brains operate .
God has the authority to unlock certain parts of the brain individually.
Some have abilities that others do not but we all have abilities .
We need to allow God to unlock them & utilize them.
He unlocks parts of our brain as he sees fit not everyone is a genius ,but there is not a need for there to be .
Everyone has different skill sets,talents,gifts, & abilities
God gets the glory for them all .
Allow God to use you and he will reveal and unlock parts of you that you could have never thought possible

I love your creed ntlsaved. I belong to a church and it is a sub set of the gospel of Jesus Christ just like many churches are. I am so looking forward to the day when Christ will bring all the faiths together. It is amazing how much your believe and mine have in common. Thanks for sharing

____________________________________________________________

If only I could properly put into words what Jesus means to me
How I wish everyone would surrender their lives to him
The peace and harmony he has bought into my life could be shared
Even if for a brief moment just so those who do not believe could believe


____________________________________________________________

To share Jesus Christ
Is
To share LIFE


____________________________________________________________

Our words are meant to find one another
And build one another up
to uplift and comfort one another
The words that flow from our lips have the power to change a day
The words that flow from our lips have the power to change a life
Our words carry more power than we realize
The very words that come from your lips can change a destiny
Be mindful of this and change the world one word at a time for the better


____________________________________________________________

Religion will get you Nowhere
Faith will take you where you need to go
Religion leads to hatred
Faith leads to salvation
Religion confuses and creates puffed up minds
While faith heals and restores
Religion destroys where faith builds up
Who needs religion when all you need is Faith


____________________________________________________________

Prayer shared lifting up faith and hope among one another
The power in prayer can change a day
The power of prayer can change a life
The connections made through prayer is astounding
One body one purpose accomplishing much together on one accord
Can create a miracle


____________________________________________________________

We all carry a harmony within ourselves
It plays out through various vibes
Some can feel this some can see this
What kind of vibes are you giving off
what kind of harmony are you making with the World at hand Do not simply live for yourself
God has a specific purpose for your life
a specific harmony he needs to make with you
for the world to hear

____________________________________________________________

Where there is confusion and chaos
There you will find the Enemy of deceit
Once you recognize this
You can combat this force with the Only strategy
that works
The Power and Authority of Christ
to cast down any strong holds
To bind this demonic activity Claim what is yours
take back what the enemy took from you
Than rejoice in the Power & Might of The Lord JESUS CHRIST




____________________________________________________________


When there is continued obedience and seeking of His Righteousness
The God of all the giver of life
and all things Will Bless those
and reward those who diligently seek him
The evidence has been abundantly overwhelmingly
true God IS & ALWAYS WILL BE WHO HE SAYS HE IS
Now BE who He wants you to be


____________________________________________________________
"Paul washer"
The need for speaking clearly about sin is acute since we live in a generation born in sin
and cultivated by it We are a people that drinks down iniquity like water
and cannot discern our fallen condition anymore than a fish can know that it is wet


____________________________________________________________

Every day your wall of integrity will be tested
The sure way it will not be damaged
is if the foundation
Is CHRIST


____________________________________________________________

Forgiving sets YOU the prisoner Free
HELD captive by the cage of
UNFORGIVENESS but the door is open
You CHOOSE to stay inside
The way out is Forgiveness

____________________________________________________________




If you are skinny and want to be bigger do the work go to the gym
otherwise stop complaining and whining
If you are overweight and want to be thinner
stop whining and feeling sorry for yourself
It takes hard work
if you are not willing to put in the work than
STOP complaining and DO something about it
This is the rule in life
you CAN change things
if you put your mind to it otherwise
SHUT UP
You have the power to change
so get of your but and WORK
all the time you complain and feel sorry for yourself
is just LOST time you can not get back
and time you could have spent WORKING
I say this IN LOVE brothers and sisters




____________________________________________________________

You can not run from your problems
They will be right there waiting for you where ever it is you are going
They will continue to find you
Until you confront and conquer them

____________________________________________________________

Be and OVER COMER
NOT
An underachiever
Except the FACT you are a child of GOD
Not anything else God gives us EVERYTHING we need to OVER COME
SO why settle for less because it IS a CHOICE

____________________________________________________________

You can want something all you want
But if you do nothing about it
The something whatever it may be will continue
To elude you

____________________________________________________________

If you want something and yet have done
Nothing
Nothing is what you will get
Doing nothing gets you Nothing

____________________________________________________________

-Paul David Washer-

It is not unloving to tell men that they are sinners, but it is the grossest form of immorality NOT to tell them!

____________________________________________________________

Pay close attention to the people around you
For there are many hurting people all around
and You could be the Cure

____________________________________________________________

In many cases people are not even aware they are capable of doing something
That is because you have not shown them it is possible
The world is watching you
They NEED to see the JESUS in you Shine
Than they will no it is possible for them to Shine

____________________________________________________________

When God has humbled someone to the point of a brokenheart over their sin it is Not a time for you to comfort them
And disturb the Mighty hand of God
For if you do
The revelation will not come

____________________________________________________________

Do NOT be a part time church gower
Only going when things are going bad
and Expecting a full-time GOD
If this is the case
You can EXPECT more of the same troubles down the road
This is not the proper veiw of our Great and Awesome GOD
He is worthy of more!!!
Do not be part time and Expected GOD TO be available
On your terms This IS BLASPHEMY

____________________________________________________________

To call ANY man "The Holy Father" is not only blasphemous It is sickening to my heart
It enthralls the very Gospel of CHRIST
for "There is none holy as the LORD for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God"
The pope is but mere man
and anyone who calls him holy or father is dishonoring God By setting up man before God
This is troubling to me
"And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, who is in heaven"


____________________________________________________________

To gain a tiny little spec of knowledge of Christ
Is worth far more than anything anyone could Ever obtain
To gain such immeasurable knowledge is a privilege and an honor

____________________________________________________________


Tradition of man made doctrines has taken over
The TRUE GOSPEL
Doctrines of man traded for the sacredness
of THE WORD OF GOD
Show me where you shall rub on beads and be forgiven
in the GOSPEL
Show me where you are to bow before men in robes
as if they were THE CHRIST
All for the sake of tradition
make NO mistake God is not pleased with this
For when the doctrines & MAN MADE traditions
are set above the WORD OF GOD than man has exalted himself above the teachings of GOD
Who is man that he might declare who is worthy of communion and who is not ?
Read the Bible this shall be your measuring stick not tradition and doctrine

____________________________________________________________

Why do people pray to Mary instead of Christ ?
It is clear Jesus says
"I am the way and the truth and the life
No one comes to the Father except through me"
Why would one pray to anyone other than CHRIST our LORD
IF Christ be lifted up he will draw all men unto him
Am i missing something ?
Is Paul or Peter or Mary more important than THE CHRIST
I believe a great DECEPTION has continued through the years and someone MUST speak about it
For FALSE doctrine MUST be exposed
No man can forgive sin
No priest can forgive sin
ONLY CHRIST has that authority
Pray to CHRIST not Mary ,Paul,Peter,
Mere men and woman
Pray to the Son of God The Christ

____________________________________________________________

Walking in the newness of Christ means
Walking into you new Future
Leaving the past where it rightfully belongs
Stop allowing your yesterday to
Determine your future

____________________________________________________________

Living this life and helping one another through our troubles
Our ups and downs is truly something people should strive for
For to love and care for ones well being is divine it is designed

____________________________________________________________

-Paul Washer-
Salvation comes to everyone who believes. However, the validity of a man’s confession of faith is confirmed or proven false by his life.

____________________________________________________________

To say God is like anything our minds can conceive
Is to sell our GOD short of ALL that HE IS
For He IS like Nothing we can form in our minds
Our limited minds shall Not understand the Limitlessness
Of GOD For HE IS THE GREAT I AM
Nothing in which to compare

____________________________________________________________

The conflict does not come from knowing the Truth
The conflict comes in living it out

____________________________________________________________

Never believe yourself to be self sufficient
For the sufficiency you do have comes from
CHRIST and was NEVER yours to begin with

____________________________________________________________

When you decide to relinquish your self believed power
And render it to whom it belongs to
Which is unto GOD
You shall stay in your current state or even worst
You MUST deny self
Pick up your cross and follow CHRIST

____________________________________________________________

Although man may subdue Truth for lies
The Word of God shall NEVER be subdued
By anyone or anything

____________________________________________________________

To Fathers and I mean to REAL FATHERS
Happy Fathers day
Just because you have children does NOT Qualify you to be a FATHER
Taking RESPONSIBILITY for your children Loving them ,Providing for them,Being there for them ,Teaching them,Leading them,Guiding them,it takes MORE than child support to be a FATHER !!! Teaching them Biblical Principals ,what it takes to be a Godly man A Godly woman .These are just some of the Qualifications if you are not on this list Take inventory of your life and MAKE the changes to be an EFFECTIVE FATHER just because you are not a good father now does not mean you have to stay that way

____________________________________________________________

To begin to comprehend GOD
Is to realize God appears
At the beginning & the end of time simultaneously
HE declares the end & beginning
He Reigns in them both
At the EXACT same time

____________________________________________________________

For the mind seeks out desires and lust of the flesh
As The Spirit within directs thy path unto
Righteousness and Truth
Only the strength of The Spirit can subdue the powerful mind
Of the flesh the powerful mind of deceit

____________________________________________________________

Make no mistake about it
It is all by the Grace of God that I am in the Honored & Privileged position
To be called a Father
Thank you Jesus for turning my life around !!

____________________________________________________________

God is not in need of us but the contrary
It is us that needs HIM for He lacks nothing
For HE IS self sufficient while we are not
All that HE IS we strive to be For he has to strive for nothing
For all things are to himself for himself and by himself
All sufficient all knowing He simply IS
There is Nothing at all in which to compare Him by or to

____________________________________________________________

Until you face your problems it is like running toward a dead end street
Until you turn around and Admit you are going the wrong direction
You will continue going Nowhere
Turn around and face the reality that you have been going the wrong direction
Running away from your problems towards a dead end

____________________________________________________________

I refuse to except the Survivor label
Although I was sexually abused I am NOT a Survivor of abuse
I am and OVER COMER I am not a Survivor I have moved to Thriver
If you keep a Survivor mentality that is what you will except yourself as
Never moving past the past but staying stuck in it
Become and OVER COMER and except your future change your way of thinking

____________________________________________________________

Man tries to explain away God at every turn
Man will always try to escape what God has put before us all
But we will NEVER escape the Moral Conscience
God has placed on EVERYONE'S heart
Science will never be able to escape this TRUTH



____________________________________________________________

When you are in a tough position in life
When things seem as if they will not get better
There is no better time than to put ALL of your trust
All of you hope and the most important ingredient
FAITH In GOD
Than stand by and watch what He can do
You will find out that ONLY God can do what you can not



____________________________________________________________


Your brokenness is only opportunity
Opportunity for God to show you what he can do with it
We all no what we do with it
Give God a chance to show you what He can do with it
Your life will never be the same



____________________________________________________________

So many people think hearing from God
Is going to be this big majestic moment
In some loud audible voice
But it is that still small voice
That whisper that always leads you unto righteousness



____________________________________________________________

The old saying goes when life gives you lemons
you are to make lemonade
Meaning you need to take bad situations and make them positive
Now if you can make lemonade from lemons
Just think God makes the lemons for you to use to make the lemonade
He will not only give you what you need He is the creator of all you need



____________________________________________________________

Laying down self was the greatest thing I could have ever done
Picking up the Cross is the smartest thing I have ever done
Following Christ is the only thing to do
Following self is the last thing I want to do



____________________________________________________________

I want to be All that God would have me to be
Every day I want to grow closer to Christ
In order for that to be possible one Must
Die daily to self pick up the cross & follow
CHRIST



____________________________________________________________

GOD is either in control or he is not

Which is it ?

If he is in control than you have to surrender to whatever his will is for your life
and know that the outcome is going to bring you closer to perfection
it is going to allow him to refine you and purify you
He is willing to do what ever it takes
His ways are truly not our ways because he is at the beginning and the end simultaneously
he knows the outcome before it even begins
so naturally he is going to take you the best possible route
with the best possible outcome
for the good of not only you but those around you
and the lives that will also be effected


____________________________________________________________

Face your fears or they will continue to not only face you but they will continue to overcome you
So I say OVERCOME your fears
This place we stay is uncomfortable and miserable
so I say go be uncomfortable and miserable while fighting through what ever it is that is making you paralyzed with fear or anxiety
with the outcome that will take you to the next level
Be uncomfortable for a time or stay uncomfortable for a life time
The choice is clear No excuses only action


____________________________________________________________

To be apart from self is to be closer to God


____________________________________________________________

IN Christ Jesus the old has passed and the new has come through him.
I have learned to leave that which is behind me because it died the day i excepted Christ .
Excepting this truth allows me to live a life for him ,not a life for self.
Living a life for self keeps the dead alive keeps the past in my present.


____________________________________________________________

Thank You God for Air conditioning and thank you for all the other things in my life I take for granted
Thank you Thank you Thank you !!!!!


____________________________________________________________

-Paul Washer-

Those preachers who refuse to speak of sin,
have no grounds for hoping that the Spirit of God is working among them to bring men to Christ.



____________________________________________________________

May the Lord allow me to ever evolve to higher and higher heights
To be beheld by the creator is truly something to be grasped
To know that God the creator of all things loves and cherishes me
Is a wonderful feeling what a magnificent God I serve
I Love you Jesus !!


____________________________________________________________

God will tare down the walls you have built up
Brick by brick and use the exact same bricks
Turn them into righteousness and lay a new Foundation
This new foundation is CHRIST
Allow GOD to transform the walls that you have built
To keep people out
Into a newly built foundation that will allow you To be who He
CREATED YOU TO BE


____________________________________________________________

-Paul Washer-

Man is loaded down with guilt
because he is guilty
He needs God’s Word to expose his sin and bring him to repentance and faith in

____________________________________________________________

Love expresses itself differently through caring,compassion, discipline, even rejection
Even if you do not feel love expressing itself through discipline
At its core love can be found


____________________________________________________________


Our love and Gods love is different
There are many facets of love Gods love will never do anything that will not provide
The best possible outcome Our so called love will & can injure us
All in the name of what we think is best not knowing the future consequence
God knows the consequence God knows the outcome we do not


____________________________________________________________

Never ever question Gods love for you
Gods love was SETTLED over 2,000 years ago
ON THE CROSS
Do not be deceived by your own feelings and emotions
Do not doubt Gods love for you
It has been settled NEVER FORGET THIS TRUTH



____________________________________________________________

There is nothing wrong with being a Christian
Wanting to be all that God would have you to be
The problem is we are in this flesh indulging our problems
Exalting them above God , God is bigger than anything we put before him
Excepting God Excepting his promises and truly standing on them
Would eliminate most if not all that comes against us


____________________________________________________________


When someone dies people perceive it to be something final
This is why so many have such a hard time with death
But when you truly come to realize that death is not final
Death is something so much bigger and better than what we can conceive of
Death is not final it is only the beginning of true peace free of all this worlds troubles
You are more free in death than alive on earth why wouldn't you want that for everyone ?
Not so much death for everyone but a chance to be at peace true peace


____________________________________________________________

God takes the the broken and pieces them together he turns ashes into beauty
He did it for me he can do it for you . Once addicted to drugs ,alcohol,pornography,
selling drugs over 6yrs,broken from sexual abuse .
I have no shame because I am free & free indeed
HE has turned all those ashes into beauty He truly makes beautiful things out of the dust I am living proof


____________________________________________________________

Love is EXTREMELY found in Forgiveness



____________________________________________________________

For God to be found you will need to go were you do not want to go
For God is not found in black and white
God is found in the place we are uncomfortable with
The grey area this is were He is found



____________________________________________________________

Only God can justify the ungodly
NEVER try to justify within yourself
For self ultimately leads to destruction
NOT justification
GODS justification is
Indeed PERFECTION


____________________________________________________________


How much do we rely on manufactured happiness ?
With the Holy Spirit you do not need manufactured anything
The Holy Spirit sustains our Joy
When you need to manifest or manipulate the human condition
The Spirit has no part in that
For the Holy Spirit is all one need


____________________________________________________________

-Paul Washer-
Let me ask you a question, “Do You Have A Passion For God?”,
“Do You Desire Him?”,
“Do You Long For Him?”
Yes, we all go through times in which our hearts are dull. Yes, we go through times when we need to be encourage.
Yes, we all go through times when our eyes are mesmerize by things they should not be.
Yes, we all struggle in that but if someone would look at your life would they say,
“This person has a passion, not for ministry,
not for missions, not for evangelism
but for God.”
~Paul Washer,Sermon- Do you desire God?

____________________________________________________________

Whatever you are confessing in your life this is what you become
If you live in fear this becomes your confession
this is what you live
If you live in worry and doubt this to will become your confession
I confess Christ and what The Heavenly Father confesses about his Son
I confess victory I confess boldness most importantly I confess that
I am a Child of the Most High God therefore I can do ALL Things Through Christ
I am More than a conquer because this is my confession I live this YOU CAN TO !!


____________________________________________________________

The world is so versed in deception making everyone feel as comfortable as it allows
But there is one who overcame the world
There is a blueprint and that blueprint is JESUS CHRIST
Jesus followed the Father we are to follow CHRIST otherwise the world will keep winning


____________________________________________________________

Life is not going to stop it is not going to quit just because you decide to.


____________________________________________________________

When your soul is thirsty were do you go to quench it's thirst
Chances are you will continue thirsting for ALL the wrong things
Only one thing can satisfy the thirsting of the soul
The living water
CHRIST JESUS


____________________________________________________________

-Paul Washer-

THIS IS THE QUESTION

Do you look and act like the world? Do you know what your profession in Jesus Christ is? Nothing.
(not every one who comes to me saying Lord, Lord will be in heaven). The question isn't do you know Jesus, but does Jesus know you?

____________________________________________________________

Allowing ANY thing or ANYONE come between your marriage
Desecrates God's covenant this includes but not limited to
Family,Friends,Addictions,Computers, Gadgets, Games Mother in laws,
Father in laws,In Laws period.
Anything that you Allow to come in has only one purpose to destroy what God put together
Recognize the enemy (Satan) and
who or what he is using to come Between God's Covenant Marriage & Evict the enemy


____________________________________________________________

The love of God can not possibly be contained
For it is as infinite like the universe itself
It grows every second of every minute everyday
The love of God grows everyday


____________________________________________________________

Saying sorry does not cut it the damage is done
Sorry never healed anything the scars are still there
But forgiving does heal
You recognize the scar is there but you realize the pain is no longer
Sorry does not make it better but forgiving does wonders


____________________________________________________________

It is absolutely amazing what Sober eyes are able to see


____________________________________________________________

Thinking about doing and putting it into practice are 2 different things
Just because you say you are working on something does not mean you are
There has to be Action behind the working not just thinking
Otherwise it is just a bunch of talk

____________________________________________________________


Do not call on God Only when trouble arises & expect miracles
The miracle would be if you would not use God as an accessory to your life
Something you could just take out and use only when you need Him
Do not be part time and expect God to work full time
If you are not doing the work why should He
Than you want to blame Him When it all falls to pieces

Be warned you may be inspired by what you read . you may get offended & if that is the case
let me apologize right now because that is not and will never be my intent. My post are meant for reflection & self examination. If you do not agree with my post or my faith that is fine everyone is at a different place in their life & also has the right to believe in what they want . I will not argue or debate i just want to share what i feel the holy spirit directs me to write. If you feel it is not for you than that is just fine but if it touches you and causes you to reflect and take inventory of your life that is also great . I also believe god gives us all we need to overcome our situations & circumstances . He gives us all we need to accomplish this . It is up to us to do the work. i always try to be honest & come with the truth and yes it hurts sometimes so brace yourself . if you can not handle it than stop now
and turn back. if you disagree with it that is fine feel free to make your own thread please do not read if
you do not take into consideration what this disclaimer explains . now it is on you . peace & blessings and may you be blessed and inspired to go to work



____________________________________________________________


Make no mistake about it God will get ALL the Glory he will have it one way or another
So you might as well get on board He will receive the glory
With our with you

____________________________________________________________

God might not change your situation or circumstance
but what he can do is
change you&through your situations and circumstances

____________________________________________________________
-Paul Washer-
He [God] needs nothing from you, so Him calling you to Himself,
asking you to come and serve is not a need to be fulfilled, He’s offering you a privilege.


____________________________________________________________

A lot of the rich & famous have money,power,fame
Things that even some Christians desire
But most of all they want what us Christians have
True peace ,joy and
THE CHRIST

____________________________________________________________

There is only ONE place to go
When things are to far gone for me to grasp
& That is to The Father on my knee's looking up
God's standard is the ONLY standard I need to live up to
Not only that he will empower me to live up to that standard
No question about it
____________________________________________________________

Never make other peoples problems
Your problems
For you have enough to deal with in your own life
This has sent many to an early grave
NOT ME

____________________________________________________________

-Paul Washer-
I am talking about power, not to fall down on the ground and shake like a worm,
not power to claim a Mercedes Benz,
not power to say you healed somebody
when, in fact, he didn’t get healed.
I am talking about the power to live
the Christian life, the power to walk
in sacrificial love, the power to pray
down strongholds, the power to preach the gospel.
That is what I am talking about.
That is what we need.

____________________________________________________________

If you are blessed to have people follow your lead
The question is not how many are following
The question is where are you leading them
Be mindful of this if you are not leading them to a path of righteousness
Than you are leading them astray

____________________________________________________________

Hug those who you love
Make amends when needed
Life truly is short all it takes is one phone call
For your world to be turned upside down & than it is to late
You really never no when someone you love will no longer be around
For you to tell them just how much you love them

____________________________________________________________

Remember that God loves even his enemies
Did not The Christ wash even Judas's feet
For he came to be the ultimate example of a servant
Not here is the order you carry it out
No here is the order allow me to work through you to carry it out
For left to ourselves serving would be on a term by term basis
Not if we allow the Holy Spirit to work Through us serving is not optional

____________________________________________________________

Build with the tools God gives
When the storm comes take out your God tools
And GO TO WORK
Let your Faith be strong
Your foundation be Christ
For all is Truly in HIS hands

____________________________________________________________

The faster you realize you are NOT your own
The faster God can make you useable to help build the Kingdom of God
Otherwise you are down here building your own little kingdoms
If that is the case good luck with that

____________________________________________________________

If you think your life is to jacked up & have done
To much for God to look down upon you with favor
You are sadly Mistaken
For it is people just like YOU who can bring
HIM the most Glory

____________________________________________________________

Being Humble & Obedient go hand in hand

____________________________________________________________

Dysfunctional does not Realize
It is dysfunctional until it is to late

____________________________________________________________


Recognize the profound effect that we have on one anothers
lives
We really need to make the most of all of the unique & purposeful encounters
Ordained by God
Life is not just about you
Make a real difference in the lives of those your paths cross

____________________________________________________________

With darkness & chaos in my mind
The LIGHT continues to Shine
Continues to intertwine with darkness & OVERCOMES it
Leaving behind only traces

____________________________________________________________

Even though you may not feel God
He is ALWAYS a prayer away
Sometimes the only place to find God is on your knees
He is waiting for you to invite him in
He loves you more than you can imagine do not go by your feelings
He is deeper than feelings and emotions ask for direction
Than wait for the answer and follow through He will come

____________________________________________________________

In your brokenness call out to the savior JESUS
For it is in this condition we are willing to listen
Sadly in our brokenness we are able to listen to that still small voice inside
That whispers God's truth & understanding
For it is in our lowest points we allow HIM to be EXALTED
Rightfully where he belonged all along

____________________________________________________________


- Charles Spurgeon-

"The nearer a man lives to God the more intensely has he to mourn over his own evil heart."

____________________________________________________________

We are Not to judge the world
but the body of Christ shall be judged strictly
Show ourselves approved
Some one has to speak Truth
Joel Olsteen is a False prophet 2 Timothy 4:3
"For the time will come when they will not endure
sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled,
they will accumulate for themselves teachers
in accordance to their own desires"
The Gospel is NOT of prosperity
People are being fed by the spoonful FALSE DOCTRINE
all in hopes of prospering , we will suffer many things
and have to give up a lot of things to follow CHRIST not money,power,fame , THINGS
STOP
watching this CRAP
it is sending people to hell by the droves


____________________________________________________________

Seek not riches
But contentment
One only need Christ not all these other things
Man tries to fill the empty void with riches & everything BUT CHRIST
The ONLY thing that will fill the void
Only HE can fill with Contentment


____________________________________________________________

Peace is better than Hate
Feels better to
Forgiveness is better than clinging to unforgiveness
It is so freeing to
Humility brings them both together


____________________________________________________________

Beware & on alert for the enemy is roaring around like lion
Seeking just whose day he can wreck Seeking who he can use
To throw you off your game
Stay strong in the faith Stand your ground & call on the name of
Jesus & make him flee you no he is coming
You can NOT win a battle without your armor so put it on & USE it
The full armor of God

____________________________________________________________

If Satan is not bothering the True Saints of God
Than you might not be any kind of a threat
For he wants to harass Gods True Saints so they will not accomplish Gods Will
So if you are constantly harassed by the enemy just know you are a threat
And With a strong Foundation & Faith In CHRIST
No demon in hell can stop US !!!!!!!!


____________________________________________________________


Marriages fall apart because
Christ is not the glue
If Christ is the glue that binds you together
It is an IMPOSSIBILITY for it to fall apart


____________________________________________________________
-Paul washer-
“There is this idea today, I hear it all the time and it goes something like this.

A preacher gets up and waxing prophetically and goes,
“There is just as much pornography in the church
as outside of the church.
There is just as much adultery in the church
as outside of the church.
There is just as much lying and thieving and everything else in the church
as outside of the church.
There is just as much wickedness in the church
as outside of the church.”

No, there is not. No, there is not.
The problem is what you are calling the church
is not the Church.
People have this idea
that everyone on Sunday in a brick building
is the Church .
That is not true.”


____________________________________________________________

If your life looks no different than when you excepted Christ in your life
Chances are you never really excepted him in the first place
If you live the same lifestyle as before excepting Christ in your life
Chances are you never really excepted anything but wishful thinking
Christ changes your life if there is no evidence of a work that is still
To this day not being continued by him through you
Chances are he never knew you & will say depart from me you worker of iniquity


____________________________________________________________


Being a Christian is so much more then going to church
Being a Christian is a life long process of sacrifice
This sacrifice is a continual sacrificing of self
Self desires Self wants Self habits All for the Glory of Him who died
Every thing we struggle to give up
Is everything the world has told us to hold onto
Every thing Christ says must go
Is backwards from everything the world says must stay

____________________________________________________________

I am but clay in Gods hands as He molds me into what He desires me to be
Shall i presume to know what is best for me to be molded into ?
Clearly NOT for left to my own interpretations i was molding myself into a drug addict,dope dealing, whore mongol
But Thanks be to God He had a better molding of me He wanted to make
____________________________________________________________

Christ himself is pleading through the power of the Holy Spirit to others trying to reconcile this lost world
Christians are to be ambassadors for Christ through Christ this can be accomplished
Apart from Christ we are only left with our own understanding of the matter &
this will always lead to ambition & self glorification
When living in sin I am centered in self
when Good is the center of me & my life there is peace there is love
When my life is centered in self sin will be found also
I find this to be true so I Must live a Christ centered life or self will Consume not only me but others

____________________________________________________________
Don't complain it does no good
Do something about your situation
If you are always the Victim you will stay the Victim
No one owes you anything in this life
You have to work for everything if you are not willing to put in the work
Than things will stay the same & if this is the case you have no right to complain
Put in the work necessary & the desired results of wishful thinking
will Manifest themselves through the hard work

____________________________________________________________

Thank you JESUS CHRIST for delivering me from ALL that you have
Thank you JESUS CHRIST for revealing your Glory to me
Thank you For your peace that surpasses ALL my understanding
I lift you up Exalt you for ALL that you are in my life
I am Free Free indeed you set me Free I praise you THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

____________________________________________________________
There is always a chance that we will turn what ever it is we find to replace a self destructive behavior
into another self destructive behavior
The key to this is recognizing it
owning it and choosing to back off and access the situation and figure out if it is wise to continue
Learning and growing from mistakes
learning and growing in this thing called life
evolving
There is not a set way of living
everyone has to figure things out for themselves
It is a huge problem thinking that there is a set way
that works for everyone
This works for me does not necessarily mean it will work for everyone

____________________________________________________________

Abraham Lincoln paraphrasing Proverbs 17:28, which says "Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace
is counted wise
and he that shutteth his lips
is esteemed a man of understanding

Better to keep your mouth shut
and let people think you're a fool
than to open it and remove all doubt
-Abraham Lincoln -
____________________________________________________________

Live this life with purpose not self gratification
You will surely get back life when you give out life
Giving instead of taking choosing to be Selfless not selfish
____________________________________________________________

Walking around in a living death
Is walking around with unforgiveness
Walking around living in your past not living for your future
Do not walk around living in death
Walk in the newness of Christ walk in Love
Live for your present live life for your future

____________________________________________________________

Allowing the light of Christ into your life means to allow light into
Your innermost parts of darkness not light like a light that comes from electricity
But a light that is from the universe the light that comes from God
The light that penetrates and consumes the darkest parts of your soul & spirit
After we have allowed Gods light to come into our lives and consume the darkness
We are to be the light the force in the world that illuminates Gods presence

____________________________________________________________

Failing to acknowledge the Truth
Will only ensure that suffering will continue
When Truth is acknowledged & acted upon
There is Freedom for your soul

____________________________________________________________

I am whole because of Christ and my confession
No one should be more powerful than my confession
Or my faith in God or my walk with God
Stay in your place let nothing bring you down from your confession
Your faith or your walk with God stay steadfast and overcome

____________________________________________________________

Faith in the storm is what is used to build my faith
Faith is so powerful that it can build itself up
If I have it together keep it together
Tell & show others how to get it together & keep it together
Through faith through Christ not through self
For self only leads to self destruction

____________________________________________________________

Fear will keep you from the Will of God
Fear will stop you from being what God called you to be
Fear stops you from moving forward in your life it keeps you stuck
This is not a spirit from God step out of fear and into Gods will
When you do you will find out it was not that difficult to begin with
____________________________________________________________

You must not live in the past
For if you do that is were your heart shall be also
Instead live for your future Never let anyone take you backwards
For how will you have a future looking back
The past is the past the future is what you make it
____________________________________________________________

We all have a deep inner sense of the divine in all of us
Placed there as a spark
This spark is waiting to be ignited into a burning light
An all consuming fire to shine before all
As proof
Of the MOST HIGH GOD

____________________________________________________________

Why do you live for your yesterday
When God has much more for your
Future

____________________________________________________________

When God invites you to into fellowship with his Son
You have to adjust your life
According to His will & plan for your life
Through CHRIST
If you are not WILLING to adjust your life to
His plan & purpose for your life , how can he use you ?

____________________________________________________________

God has taken this life that was in pieces
& Handed it back
To me
WHOLE and COMPLETE

____________________________________________________________

Opportunity for God looks something like this
ALLOWING him to turn your Tragedy into Triumph
ALLOWING him to turn your
Trials into Testimony your Misfortunes into a Master Plan
ALLOWING him to take your perceived Devastation
And turn it into Divine Purpose
It is not about you ALLOW God to work through your
Situations & Circumstances than you will be able to see God clearly

____________________________________________________________

Live your life in the will of God
And you will not have to live a double life
For when you have to live a double life
You will have to lie you will have to
live a lie

____________________________________________________________

Instead of putting all of your energy trying
To understand the secret things that only belong to God
Put fourth All you have inside & out of you
Obeying the secret things of God
That have already been REVEALED to by the Holy Spirit
____________________________________________________________

If you will not bring your infirmities before God
You will not bring them before men
Therefor you will never be healed of them
You must bring your infirmities & your imperfections
Before God honestly openly than you may begin your journey
To Truth
To Healing & Deliverance
or you will continue to get more of the same
Unfulfilled life you have been living

____________________________________________________________


If you are lukewarm before men
You are definitely lukewarm before our most Holy God
Do not be lukewarm
Instead be on Fire for God be an example before men
Not a imposter

____________________________________________________________


Life is to short to hold grudges
Get it right
Never mind tomorrow is not promised
The next minute is not promised
Make amends now not later
Later is not promised either

____________________________________________________________


Fathers do you realize the effect and power
We have not only on our current generation but
Future generations several generations
Fatherhood should not be taken lightly at all
For future generations to come rest on us

____________________________________________________________

If you are a horrible father realize you are effecting
A whole lot more than just yourself
In reality you are effecting several generations
Is it really worth it To be that selfish ?

____________________________________________________________

For our God truly provides peace in ones life
Allow the peace of God to come into your life
There is no peace like the peace He gives

____________________________________________________________

I want to know the deep things of God
In order to do that I need to spend time In the word of God
Show me O Lord God of heave & earth
The deep things of God so that I may shine for you
In the fallen world of darkness

____________________________________________________________


Step up Christians be doers of the word of God
Not just someone who continues to hear and do the same things you do every single day
Day after day
Be a warrior for God

____________________________________________________________

To break the shackles of addiction
Do not merely seek freedom from the addiction
Seek the face of God and in doing so
He will deliver you from the addiction
If it is freedom you seek that freedom will be exalted above
The one that delivers
therefore
Seek God with all your heart
with all your soul
with all your mind
Than deliverance will follow

____________________________________________________________

Men who do not want God will not endure sound doctrine
They will listen to a Joel Olsteen & Benny Hinn
To get there ears tickled exposing their heart & its evil desires
The Gospel of Christ is not of prosperity & blessings it is of Sacrifice
Putting off the desires of the flesh not embracing them
Wake up people false prophets are among us
____________________________________________________________

Appearing Righteous
&
Living Righteous
Is the difference between
Deceit or Truth
You had better be able to distinguish the difference

____________________________________________________________

Pleasing God
FIRST
If this is done
You shall have no need
To please people

____________________________________________________________

Do Not deceive the world as well as yourself
If the inside of your cup is dirty
First clean the inside of the cup than the outside will follow
Than others will be able to drink from your cup

____________________________________________________________

God is the perfecter of my faith
He will take me through whatever he has to
He will take me wherever he has to take me
Because He knows what it takes to perfect my faith
____________________________________________________________

Why is it that you choose to stay imprisoned?
When Christ has posted bail
Not only that
He has taken upon himself
The punishment for the sins committed

____________________________________________________________

We all struggle with things
But as Christians we are to work on lessening our struggles
Through Christ with the tools he has provided

____________________________________________________________

When the day comes to face the judge
There is only but ONE lawyer for your defense
That is Christ Jesus the son of God
Without him pleading your case
Consider yourself Hell bound

____________________________________________________________

Living a life trying to fit into the world
Will Always lead to disappointment & sadness
And you will loose yourself in the process
You will loose your uniqueness that God gave you
Do Not try to fit into the mold of world
The world needs people like you to be you
So they can see they do not have to be somebody else

Thanks for the encouragement , these are my Facebook post . When I feel the spirit move I write it down and have been sharing with everyone on Facebook . Some days nothing comes other days it is like a flood . The goal is to inspire and encourage anyone willing to listen . Some of these blow me away and I know for a fact it is not me who produces them it is the spirit of God within me .

Thanks again

Being religious makes you a Christian like being in a garage makes you a car. I heard this line an had to share it.

Some guy on TBN last night. I can't remember his name. He may have got the quote from her or she from him. I liked the quote and thought you would like it.

Psalm 121:1-2

I lift up my eyes to the hills-- where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.

I heard this on a song that I downloaded on my iPhone. Then I just read in in Psalms. I didn't know it was from the Bible tho.

Disclaimer

Be warned you may be inspired by what you read . you may get offended & if that is the case
let me apologize right now because that is not and will never be my intent. My post are meant for reflection & self examination. If you do not agree with my post or my faith that is fine everyone is at a different place in their life & also has the right to believe in what they want . I will not argue or debate i just want to share what i feel the holy spirit directs me to write. If you feel it is not for you than that is just fine but if it touches you and causes you to reflect and take inventory of your life that is also great . I also believe god gives us all we need to overcome our situations & circumstances .He gives us all we need to accomplish this . It is up to us to do the work. i always try to be honest & come with the truth and yes it hurts sometimes so brace yourself . if you can not handle it than stop now
and turn back. if you disagree with it that is fine feel free to make your own thread please do not read if
you do not take into consideration what this disclaimer explains . now it is on you . peace & blessings and may you be blessed and inspired to go to work



____________________________________________________________


When the Holy Spirit of God convicts
You Must Respond Promptly to its newly Revealed Truth
Excepting the Truth & Operating in this Truth are Key
Failing to Respond to the Holy Spirits Conviction Promptly
Will only lead to further sorrow in one's mind body & soul
But more Importantly Grieving the very Heart of God

____________________________________________________________

I just heard this at my recovery class , thought it was pretty powerful .

Just wanted to share

"IF I am not constantly working on my recovery
Than I am working towards my relapse
"

____________________________________________________________

In order to Obey the Holy Spirit when it Convicts
One Must come into Agreement with Truth
If there is no Agreement Change will not come &
Sorrow Will continue because of
The Rejection of Truth

____________________________________________________________


Adjust your life to Conform to Truth
In order to be Reconciled & at Peace with God
For Deceit is Hostile towards God
The most common Deceit is the deception of self
You must respond to Truth with Obedience
For thinking about it & Doing are separate matters


____________________________________________________________

To feel as if God expects to much of you
Is Opportunity for planned personal Growth
The question is will you Cower away or Grow?

____________________________________________________________

Everyone believes in evil
The Problem we face is Knowing
What to do with it when it shows itself
If you Choose to do Nothing
Evil becomes your God

____________________________________________________________

Pride is a Wall
Built by your Own hands
IT Separates you from God

____________________________________________________________


Pride Exalts itself Above
The Wisdom of The Most High God
The Fall is Severe & usually Swift

____________________________________________________________

Anger Clouds Judgement
&
Skews
The Ability
To
Choose
A Rational course

____________________________________________________________

Deception of self
Is the Continued Denial of Truth
Living in this state
Is only Ensuring GROWTH
Can Not
&
Will Not Occur

____________________________________________________________

Learn this
Truth is a person
For Jesus said " I Am the Truth"
So when Truth from the Spirit of God is revealed
You should know walking With Truth in Truth
Is walking hand in hand
With THE MASTER

____________________________________________________________

Having a relationship with Truth
Is having a relationship with CHRIST
This far outweighs having a relationship with
The evil one who is by nature a liar & deceiver

____________________________________________________________

The Spirit of God speaks with information that can save our souls
It speaks not in our native language but in tones that are so
Peaceful & so direct you know it could not of come from anywhere else

____________________________________________________________

We MUST learn to Conform our lives around
The Word of God
When Truth is Revealed
There Has to be an Action to rearrange our lives around
This newly revealed Truth
Otherwise whats the point

____________________________________________________________

If you are having a one way conversation with God
You are Not listening
Only talking
For it is a two way Fellowship
Are you listening ?

____________________________________________________________

Denying self will Lead you to greater & greater
Manifestations of God working Through you
When you are in the way
There is no room for Almighty God to work
SO GET OUT OF THE WAY

____________________________________________________________

Will you do what you want to do?
Or
Adjust your life to what God wants to do
Because HE will far outdo out shine & out perform
Whatever your plans are
His plans are Greater The choice is easy
Why fight it

____________________________________________________________

Do not work out of the senses
continue to work out of the Spirit
and from that you will reap the benefits
that come from doing that
Bearing fruit is a must for Christians
Because sometimes others have to eat from your fruit because they have none
They are not connected to THE VINE so they can not bear fruit of their own
So let them eat from your fruit because we are to bear the infinities of the weak

____________________________________________________________

Anyone in an abusive relationship
Needs to understand God has better for you
Put your Trust in God not your senses
Your sense tell you that you have to stay
But putting your Faith in God not your senses will reveal
He has much much more for you than you could ever imagine

____________________________________________________________

Do Not put Faith in limited man
Put Faith in The Limitless God
For we are limited in our flesh
We can only do so much
But God is Limitless
Do not restrain God in your life

____________________________________________________________

I need God ability not my own
Because my ability is limited
Gods ability working through me is Limitless

____________________________________________________________

EVERYTHING we have endured in this life
Is Nothing compared to the Kingdom of God
Every hardship can be used to Glorify the King
For he has surely brought me out of the very depths of Hell
He delivered me from Self


____________________________________________________________

Although we ALL have fallen short of The Glory of God
Has HE not Redeemed us & Justified us to walk upright
As a child of The Most High God ?
Even though we are yet sinners we are Forgiven
Therefore shame & guilt have NO place in our lives
But know this when we do sin Purification & Satisfaction Must be done

____________________________________________________________

Realize if you think your family is dysfunctional
And your life is not what it could and should be because of this
All the members of your family have a similar background
You are Not as unique as you think
Stop & Realize if your life is dysfunctional than they had a dysfunctional life to
Although life was dysfunctional you can choose to Forgive and break the cycle
Do not use this as an Excuse to keep living in a revolving door

____________________________________________________________

Demons flood the bodies influencing the flesh
bringing forth madness & struggles raging against The Spirit of Truth
Skewing Judgment
Arguments to be made & weighed
The scale must be tipped unto Righteousness
This is War

____________________________________________________________

you are Not going to make it out there on your own the world will chew you up and spit you out

____________________________________________________________

Do not love The man
Love the God who works through the man
Do not worship man
But Worship The God who works through the man

____________________________________________________________

Walking with Christ is far different than walking in the flesh
Can people tell the difference ?
Self inventory time
Examine your life & see if you are doing YOUR will
Does you life Align with Gods will or does it Align with your own will?
IF your are NOT GrOwING than you are stagnant & if you are stagnant
The living water is not flowing in you therefore you might just be a stinky filthy mess

____________________________________________________________

With out the continual washing of the spirit cleansing you
You will become as the world is
You must eat from the bread of Life just as you nourish your body with food
Otherwise you are eating from the world & its fruit which will be cut down
Thrown into the fire

____________________________________________________________

Do Not merely live your life according to what you have been taught
Do Not merely take peoples word for it
Dive into the word of God to see for yourself what Thus saith The LORD
Not others interpretations Let the Holy Spirit of God REVEAL TRUTH
Let the Spirit of God within you teach you not just what others say
Do you no because someone told you? or do you no because The Spirit Revealed it ?




____________________________________________________________


people never get to experience the big things of God because they do not acknowledge the little things he does everyday

Most vehicles have a warning system when their fuel tank gets low. To prevent them from running out of gas. Then we stop and refuel it.. For Christians we need prayer , praise, and the word of God as our refueling. We need to keep our tanks full. We should not let our tank get low.

Thank you. I am on a renewed relationship with Christ and I no longer believe the lies from the evil one that I was taught as a kid. I'm still a kid in this new walk with God, but He's ok with it and I'm down for that! smile

Please do not be offended ,but if you feel like commenting on the food for thought weekly post that is cool but just random post was not my idea for this thread . I appreciate comments and it might seem petty but I hope you understand . I really am not trying to offend. It just makes it harder to keep the food for thought postings in order


It is not about what really can and can not be posted here .
In order for me to quickly post the things I need to post it is more efficient to click on the number and pick up where I left off . If someone post a comment concerning the thread that is no big deal . But if there are just conversations going on I have to scroll through everyone's conversation to get to the last place I left off. It is time consuming to post the weekly threads as it is . This is not to deter people from reading the threads just asking that if you want to comment on a particular post such as if it effected you or caused you to reflect on it that is cool and appreciated . It also lets me no that I am not just wasting my time . It is very time consuming to make the post fit without them running across the screen . I have a wife and 5 kids one with special needs "down syndrome" It all boils down to a time factor . It might not seem like much but everyone has there quirks . Thank you

Maybe it would be better if you just tell people what they should or should not post on here then. The term food for thought is pretty random. I did not take offense to you saying what you said the first time but I guess you get upset when someone post on here it seems. I will choose to stay of your thread then. Sorry for any inconvenience my posts caused to you.

____________________________________________________________

The Truth of a situation or circumstance can NOT
Be discovered through feelings but from Conformation from God
Truth shall be Revealed not by emotion but the very Spirit of God
Consult The Heavenly Father for Truth to be Revealed
Through the situation or circumstance for an Understanding
Otherwise you are leaning on your own understanding


____________________________________________________________

What you actually DO
Says MORE about your belief in God
More so than what you say you believe about God


____________________________________________________________

When you understand the great gift of salvation
And that you have been forgiven
it is a whole lot easier to forgive
Therefore go and forgive
because you have been forgiven


____________________________________________________________

Understanding salvation and accepting salvation
are completely 2 different matters
Your lifestyle will be the evidence

____________________________________________________________

The communication line Must be opened There Must be Sincere Heartfelt Prayer
The Knees is were God Must be found
There is a Force in & through out this
Perfectly formed Universe
He can be found & spoken to through this open communication of Prayer
He Yearns for Deep Deep intimacy with YOU talk to Him

____________________________________________________________

Humble yourself before Almighty God in prayer
Time spent Earnestly Seeking His face
will Result in the most Important relationship
Open your flesh to the ONE
who Can Tame it
For it is well known the flesh will Not Submit
to your own authority
Power comes from on High
& Is readily available for those who Submit
to the One who IS above ALL things


____________________________________________________________

It is Not you but the very Spirit within yourself
That Can Empower you to do Great & Mighty things
You Must Realize that The Spirit is were the Power comes from

____________________________________________________________

Marriage was created to Sanctify one another
Through the Trials & Test you Will face
To show thyself approved
Forgiveness is the Ultimate form of Love
Agape Love
what better way to Exercise this Love than Marriage
To be the head Serving in the same capacity as Christ
is Truly something to behold
To give yourself over to your Wife as to die for her
to become Selfless not Selfish
To enter into marriage is to enter into a Covenant which can Not be broken
even by law
To enter into marriage is to be excepting of this Divine Sanctifying Process


____________________________________________________________

You may have Prayed today
But have you Prayed on your
KNEES

____________________________________________________________

Truth usually will hurt you
Truth will usually cut you to your core
It has to
Truth has to cut through all the falsehoods
& misconceptions
When it cuts through all the compromise & justification
Only than can Truth finally be exposed
Only than Truth can finally be seen

____________________________________________________________


What is your God ? Who is your God ?
is it the God of the bible ?
is it the God of facebook?
the God of work , cars,games,gambling,
sex,pornography,? What is your God



____________________________________________________________

Realize that the way you live your life
Every single day
Is a Direct Testimony about who God is in your life


____________________________________________________________

Fathers if you are not leading your
family in devotion & are leaving it all up to the church
to train Your children in the way they should go
You need to step your game up and Teach Your children
It is NOT the churches job to do the job Christ has placed in Your hands


____________________________________________________________

When you face a crisis in life
What you truly believe about God
will
IN FACT
Be Represented in your Actions



____________________________________________________________


All of your shortcomings all of your past failures
The liabilities in your life
are nothing more than opportunity for God
Put God in all of that and it is called a Testimony
Take God out of that and all you are left with is
A life of shame guilt and condemnation & deservedly so
This is why The Savior came to Save us from ourselves
To do His will Not our own will


____________________________________________________________

A lot of people think that they chose to come to Christ
Truth is He has chosen You
Through all of the sin and wreckage we have caused in our lives
He has given a way out
That out is The Savior Jesus Christ
Free will has enabled us to make a mess out of our life
All the things we blame God for is nothing more than free will at work



____________________________________________________________


We can do Nothing on or own accord
Because the Father shows us what to do
And that is to Honor Christ in doing so
The Father is Honored
When these two things come together we are able
To do Abundantly more than ever thought possible


____________________________________________________________


When we chose to deny self
this allowed God to choose us
not that we chose him
But because He First Loved us




____________________________________________________________

To live life for Christ is to Live life
Period


____________________________________________________________

You can study the Scriptures diligently
& even be able to quote them on demand
Yet if you think you have eternal life you are sadly mistaken
For if you hear & do not obey the word
It is all Rot
One must hear the word & obey it
This is the difference between those who have eternal life & those who do Not


____________________________________________________________


You need no proof of God existence
Because He has placed His laws within Everyone's heart
There is only denial of obedience to these laws
For how does one no right from wrong without even being taught


____________________________________________________________

God chooses his people
When they open their hearts
to something bigger than themselves
When this occurs
He completely Reveals Himself
The God of the Universe loves you
& wants a Relationship with
YOU
He is just waiting to choose you


____________________________________________________________

Living for self now that is easy
Easy and dangerous being lead by the senses
never ends well
Living for Christ is hard but
The Spirit
NEVER
Has told me to do wrong & led me down the wrong path


____________________________________________________________

Why do we tend to hoard things in our souls
Shame -Guilt - Sin -Bad Habits -Hurt-Pain -Unforgiveness
Choosing to hoard things holding on to them as if they were gold
God wants to come in and remove the hoard clean it out
Set your soul free let him organize and declutter the things you are holding onto

____________________________________________________________


All glory all honor to you lord
may you receive all the glory
and that there be none left among men
for you alone deserve all the glory
thank you for your peace your understanding
and most of all your will
thank you for The Christ
who saved me from drowning in my filth
from my sin you set me free
so I humble myself before you to be made low
so you may be lifted up and exalted
lord decrease me so that you may increase
and allow me to be a vessel
to be used by you and for you
I except your calling
I except your will for my life
thank you for this opportunity to serve you
and honor you in Jesus name Amen



____________________________________________________________

Why would you go diving in head first into the sea of Forgetfulness
Swimming out after the things God has placed there
Only to bring it back to the shores of
Shame & Guilt
Leave it ALONE leave it where it Belongs



____________________________________________________________

It is our Suffering that brings us Closer
to Christ
Because through suffering
we find out All that we are Not
We are able to truly see our Dependence on God
Suffering enables us to see God in his rightful place
That is above Everything in our lives



____________________________________________________________


Our sin was Crucified with Christ
The old is dead because of this
Now You can live
the new life Christ has called you to live
Because the old has been crucified in death
Allowing the newness In Christ
to transform our lives and Live



____________________________________________________________

The reason we are to bear fruit
is to bring Glory to God
In bearing fruit the world can See
that we Belong to Christ
This Gives Glory to God when we bear fruit
For it puts before the world
Christ in us on Display



____________________________________________________________

Live in the spiritual realm
For when you do live in the spiritual
Problems are only opportunity to overcome
and weaknesses become your strengths
Living in the senses
A problem is just a problem & a weakness stays weak
Get out of the natural and elevate to the spiritual



____________________________________________________________


Where is your Treasure ? is it here on earth storing up things that will fade away ?
because your heart will divulge your treasure for where ever your treasure is
there your heart will be also
The world NEEDS You
to be an Example for Christ will you be ?


____________________________________________________________

The Gospel of Christ Saved my life
I wish I could put into words what it means to be SAVED
Even though it all does not make sense to those who no not of my Savior
All I can do is ask that you Try Jesus He will Not fail you
He will Save you from the one thing you can not save yourself from
That is Sin the sin that brings a heavy heart to those still trapped & Enslaved by it


____________________________________________________________
-inspiration of the day-
friend emailed me this


The Truth is, we are ...'God's instruments to do his work'... (1Peter 2:9 )
When do you know the True value of an instrument?
When it's in the hands of a Master!
So put your life into the Master's hands
and watch what He does with it
He 'saved us...not because of anything we did...
but because of God's Purpose...before time began
(2 Timothy 1:9 )
And He 'has given each of US a gift from his great variety
to Serve one another' (1Peter 4:10 );
gifts to equip God's people to do His work and build up the church' (Ephesians 4:11-12 )



____________________________________________________________

Suffering through pain and anguish
No matter what it is no matter what the reason
We all have felt this and have experienced it
Yet there is love to be found there connections waiting to be made
Through suffering we can identify with each other comfort one another
In a way that only love can bring together to heal one another
Love on someone today



____________________________________________________________

The power to Forgive is something truly divine
To grasp grace through the anger and pain
Knowing what it Feels like to be Forgiven
The Meaning comes alive in ones soul
Exercise the choice to Forgive
Acknowledge the Power in Forgiveness & Forgive


____________________________________________________________



Is God homeless in your life ?
He wants to make his home
Indwelling inside of You
Do not allow God to be homeless
Invite Him in let him take up residency



____________________________________________________________

When the connection is strong between you and God
Everything else is as it should be
When the connection is broken
Everything is not as it should be

____________________________________________________________

True Christians are Recognizable
So are Imposters
We know us



____________________________________________________________

While you are waiting on God to fix all your problems
God is waiting on you to Exercise your Faith
And Use the Power & Authority over your problems


____________________________________________________________

Living In Gods favor is far beyond
Your best life now
Living In Gods favor is Christ
Living IN You


____________________________________________________________

Keep God at the forefront of your path
and it shall remain Strait
Otherwise the path Will become Crooked


____________________________________________________________

Adjusting your life to the Greater Call
Of Gods plan for your life
Requires Sacrifice
No greater love than for you
to lay down your life for another
This Requires Adjustment This IS Sacrifice

____________________________________________________________

No accountability is danger to self

____________________________________________________________

Faith will produce Results
Actions Speak according to the proportion of your
Faith

____________________________________________________________

Although Christ himself was poor
& even stricken with Poverty
Yet he has Allowed us to be Rich
In Many ways
Not just Material but
Eternally rich

____________________________________________________________

Outside of Gods will
There is No safety
Being In the Will of God
Is Perfection


____________________________________________________________

Walk instep with Jesus
Not
Away from Jesus


____________________________________________________________

Your own will can only take you so far
Gods will
Will take you where your own will
Can Not
But the Reward Is Immeasurable


____________________________________________________________

Staying alone will lead you to places further & further
Away from God
Get out of self and run Towards Christ



____________________________________________________________

You are Not being Used
Because you
Refuse to do
THE WORK
Obedience to The Spirit
is the Only thing that matters
Be obedient
and everything else will fall into place


____________________________________________________________

Man's fallen condition
is in such a state
that you will never truly be happy
with sin in your life
and rightfully so
for what have a man
if not him seeking righteousness
but a life of hell on earth
Do THE WORK

____________________________________________________________

Concede & Repent
Come Wash Me Clean
Forgiven Yet Again
Allowed to Move Forward with Confidence
Turned from dark to Light
Spiritual Warfare fought and Waged War with self
Conceded & Repented
Set Free



____________________________________________________________

Valid after first denying or resisting it
totally liven in this
mind state of recklessness
In need of this Savior to break through the layers
Layers upon layers upon layers
I no that he is in there
In there somewhere keep digging & digging & searching
Bring forth fruit from within
Repentance from sin the key to the win
There's more than the struggle & pain
So I humble myself Again


____________________________________________________________

Through the struggle & the pain I can see through the Rain
Another day another day
The savior Pierced through the darkness forever into eternity
Satan must get up off of me Back up off me
The Sword The spoken word
Slays the hordes of legions facing me daily
Mentally prepared to do battle with principalities
Yet not seen with the naked eye
Presence surrounding me Your not taking me
I look to the Heavens Grace abounding
In me & through me
Sufficient

____________________________________________________________

God has given us a helper
So we do Not have to be ruled by our feelings & emotions
That helper is The Holy Spirit
Get out of the natural and allow The Spirit to Rule



____________________________________________________________
Sept 29th 2012

I give ALL Glory to My Savior Jesus Christ
who delivered me from alcohol on this day 11yrs ago
I was baptized still drunk from the night before ,
that day I came up out of the water I could feel Gods Divine mercy
his Love surrounded me in me & all around me
I felt God I felt his presence HE IS REAL
That day he took my addiction and dependance of alcohol from me
For if He had not I would be dead
I had been in the hospital 3 separate times with alcohol poisoning
yet still I could not stop
Sept 29th 2001 was the last day I had alcohol
so I would Love the opportunity to invite anyone
struggling with drugs or alcohol into a relationship
with The God of the Universe
HE is REAL He does Deliver
THANK YOU GOD THANK YOU CHRIST MY SAVIOR !!!




____________________________________________________________

This world always over promises
and not only severely under delivers
it Severely Disappoints
But God ALWAYS delivers & Always KEEPS his
Promises



____________________________________________________________

I do not feel adequate if I am not allowing God to use me
To build His Kingdom
For if I am not building His Kingdom
Than I must be building my own little one
There is nothing like bringing people to The King of Mercy & Grace



____________________________________________________________

Getting yourself in position for God to use you
is Crucial
Allowing God to use you
Life is Not about you & your little world
It is However about you being where He needs you to be
To meet others at their Crossroads in this Life
If you are not there they loose out & so do you
You are here to do His Work not your own
Not to mention it is Fulfilling
Unlike doing your own work which ALWAYS feels like chasing the devil



____________________________________________________________

It is an Impossibility to run in the opposite direction
of your Problems
And Expect them to eventually get solved
Run Toward your problem & Conquer it
Otherwise it will continue to Conquer YOU



____________________________________________________________

Although not perfect I strive for perfection
Outside looks great
Inside is filthy as rags
But the heart for Christ is True
I will follow Christ at all cost
But do not let the external facade fool you
I am a sinner Saved By Grace through Faith



____________________________________________________________

It is Obedience that brings forth Gods blessings
Disobedience brings forth chaos and mismanagement
Test this you will find that Obedience brings fruit in your life
Disobedience brings rot



____________________________________________________________

Mysteries of God are unlocked by Obedience
To Experience God in new ways
One Must Adjust ones life to Obedience
When your will Aligns and Adjust to The Fathers Will
Your Life will Dramatically change
Live IN The Spirit for there are No misdeeds done In The Spirit



____________________________________________________________
There is no question that my life is a Direct testament to Christ
And the Power & Authority given unto me by the Holy Spirit
Directly correlates with All that He has done for me
The more Obedient I am to The Spirit
The further God reveals to me about His nature and ways



____________________________________________________________

Make Christ a Priority & your life will Change Dramatically
Keep Him on the to do list & your life will Reflect this
For He is Truly Worthy of ALL our Praise
Give him your Best & he will overflow your life with Blessings



____________________________________________________________

We will never fully understand the Magnificence of God
When have you ever heard of a King leaving his Thrown
When have you ever heard of a King leaving his Glory
This is Unending Unfailing LOVE
This is Amazing Grace
Because he did it for You he did it for me



____________________________________________________________

The King left his Thrown of Majesty
The King left his thrown of Glory to Serve
He left his Thrown to die so we could Live
Now we have the Privilege to Serve
The bar has been set
Accept the Task given By The King of All authority



____________________________________________________________

Allow the Holy Spirit to Lead
And get out of the way
Because there is only room
For One to lead
Either you are following
The Spirit or your in the way



____________________________________________________________

Choose this day to Serve one another
As The Christ the Savior of the world chose to Serve
He Served unto death
All He ask is that we Serve one another
Be usable today



____________________________________________________________

You do not have the luxury of working on your life later
The work must begin now
because others will suffer
if you are not where you are supposed to be
When they need you to be there
Believe it or not it's not all about you



____________________________________________________________

Choose to do the will of Christ
It is going to cost you
Choosing not to do the will of Christ
will cost you far more


____________________________________________________________

Pray in The Spirit and Invite The Spirit into your day
The enemy does not want you to be in The Spirit
He wants you to be in self
Walk in the characteristics of Christ which is the fruit of the Spirit



____________________________________________________________

We are all born with
gifts ,talents,and abilities
The question is not do we have them
but are we allowing God to utilize them for which He Purpose ?



____________________________________________________________

When I use to get high it would ultimately make me low
With Christ I have joy unspeakable my only dependence is solely in Christ
The ultimate high



____________________________________________________________

Even though man does not always get it right
God through his infallible nature
can still find a way to show his glory
Through all of our fallible ways



____________________________________________________________

____________________________________________________________

Darkness cannot only be penetrated
But It can be Overcome by The Light
The Light Represents
Christ
Is there darkness in your life ?



____________________________________________________________

We are all set apart by God
We all have a light
We all have a purpose
Step out the dark
And into the light
For the purpose which God created you for



____________________________________________________________

Just because you portray strength
does not necessarily mean you are strong
And just because you have the appearance
of being weak
does not mean you do not have
abundant strength from within


____________________________________________________________

True competition will
force one another to push one another
to the Highest Potential
Not force one another down
Competition is Designed to bring out the Best
in people Not the worst


____________________________________________________________

Jesus thank you for your deliverance
thank you for bringing me out if the mire


____________________________________________________________

All good things are not Divine things
You had better know the difference
A good thing is not necessarily a God thing


____________________________________________________________

I am at the Speedway
watching the drunkards leave the concert
All I can say is I praise God
that I am not where I used to be
Not judging at all by any means
just thankful If not for Grace There go I


____________________________________________________________

If the gospel of Christ does not Empower
you in any way
than it is probably not the gospel
of Jesus Christ it is probably your own gospel


____________________________________________________________

Men's souls recognizes The Truth of God's existence
Men's heart recognizes the Truth in God's laws
Man's mind tries to dismiss them both


____________________________________________________________

Truth is a person
For Christ is
The Truth
Christ is the way
Christ is life


____________________________________________________________

Look no longer to your feelings
Do not be bound by your senses
But be fulfilled by the Limitlessness
of Faith in things yet not seen
For Blessed is he who believes and hath not seen

____________________________________________________________
Salvation is Of grace through faith
lest anyone be able to boast and take
credit for the salvation they have received
So freely provided by God's Master Plan
Boasting is equal to pride
and pride has no place
for it sets itself up above God


____________________________________________________________

There are many things that we will not know about God
just because we do not understand the fullness's
of his Majesty does not give us any right
by any means to think that we know more
than the creator of all things


____________________________________________________________

WORTHY IS THE PRECIOUS LAMB OF GOD
THERE IS NONE LIKE HIM NOR WILL THERE EVER BE
HE IS THE KING OF KINGS WHO LEFT HIS THROWN OF GLORY
TO DIE A PAINFUL DEATH FOR OUR SAKE
TO ASCEND TO THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER
SO YOU COULD BE FREE
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR ?


____________________________________________________________

Having material things is not the reason to be called blessed
For many are called to a life of discomfort while serving Christ
Having Christ indeed causes one to be blessed



____________________________________________________________
Before you ask God to rain down more blessings upon you
ask yourself have you taken care of the blessings
he's already placed within your hands?
Before you ask God to shower you with finances
ask yourself have you stewarded
the finances he's already given you?

____________________________________________________________

The inability of man to conquer his own sin is ONLY nullified by
THE CROSS
One can only be assured that they're wretchedness has been removed
By excepting God's Grace through Faith

____________________________________________________________

Lay down your pride
Become a living sacrifice
For he has saved you and redeemed you
and is worthy of all such praise

____________________________________________________________

Christ you found me broken and lost
Over the years you have put me back together piece by piece
You saved me I am forever yours

____________________________________________________________

It is okay to ask questions
that's not stupid at all
However it is
stupid
By your own choice
to stay stupid
by not asking the questions
to the answers you seek

____________________________________________________________

Do not take Flight when TRUTH is Presented
Instead Stand in the midst of TRUTH
And Allow it to Work in Your
Life

____________________________________________________________

IF your outward Reality does not match
Your INWARD REALITY
Than your Inward Reality needs to be cleared up
For the outside is Not the Reality that matters most
The Inside Must be cleaned up so Christ can dwell there


____________________________________________________________

How can the Greater things that God has Ordained
For my Life get accomplished
If I am so busy
Doing Meaningless things like running around building
My own little Kingdom
There is only room for ONE KINGDOM
and it Most Certainly is Not mine

____________________________________________________________

Although when we pray and believe that we will receive
remember God is in control and if we do not get what we ask for
we will get something far greater
GOD'S WILL
____________________________________________________________

God takes the fatherless and makes them Sons
God takes the orphan and turns them in to a Daughter
He takes the sinner and redeems Their Soul
Who else But the King of Kings
The Christ

____________________________________________________________

I've had a horrible terrible no good very bad day
But Jesus Still Reigns

____________________________________________________________

You shall be Lifted High
For you alone are Worthy
Remove all Self imposed glory from man
For truly ALL GLORY belongs to The ONE
who sits on HIGH
THE ALPHA
THE OMEGA beginning middle and THE END

____________________________________________________________

Being obedient to Holy Spirit can be very difficult because
The Holy Spirit will Lead your flesh to do things it Desperately wants to fight against
Perfect example
The Holy Spirit leading
Christ to the Cross

____________________________________________________________

When you receive The Gift
Of The Indwelling Holy Spirit
Your life should Radically & Dramatically begin to Transition
Into a Completely Different
Lifestyle
Resembling Less & Less
Of your Former way of living

____________________________________________________________
Are you aware that the Holy Spirit has emotions ?
For the word says do
Not Grieve the Holy Spirit of God
Therefore you can with your Decisions Cause
The Holy Spirit to Grieve
Be Mindful of this

____________________________________________________________

God is not going to come down from Heaven to direct your path for You
That is the job Of The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the one who will Lead and Guide you
All You have to do is Follow its Directions

____________________________________________________________

It is not you that draws people to God however
it is the Holy Spirit in you that draws people to God
so that no man shall boast of his own doing

____________________________________________________________

Much like a good Parent uses Discipline
for Disobedience
to bring us back in line with Obedience
so too does God

____________________________________________________________

If YOU are not WILLING to put in the WORK
Necessary to IMPROVE Your life
Than stop Complaining about it

____________________________________________________________

Christ through the Power of the Indwelling Holy Spirit
Has Given Us EVERYTHING we Need to Work out
Our own Salvation
If you are not Using the Direction & Wisdom the Spirit Gives
IT is not God's fault YOU are Not making Progress
It is Your OWN fault for not OBEYING the TRUTH
THE SPIRIT REVEALS

____________________________________________________________

I have realized I have Willingly Allowed Christ to be my Savior
Mainly saving me from self

And by doing so I have Reaped the Benefits of doing so
Such as DELIVERANCE from
Drugs & Alcohol ,Brokenness from Sexual Abuse , Addiction to Pornography,Suicidal
Tendencies and the death of Sin

But in Realizing this I Recognize
That He wants not only to be my
Savior but also Lord of my Life
When I have Allowed him to be
The Lord of my life
He has given me far Greater Insight to His Plan & Will for my life
It is Easier to discern direction
There is abundant Peace Inside of Gods Will
The Moment he is no longer allowed access to Lordship over my life
It is Absolutely Clear when I am only Allowing him Access to the role of Savior

____________________________________________________________

Walking this Christ centered walk comes with the Highest
Measure of accountability
The Indwelling Holy Spirit

____________________________________________________________

Draw near to God and He will Draw near to you

You must peruse God with everything you have no matter how long it takes
Look at the story of Joseph how God took him through
so many things and yet for the ultimate good
He does things in a way that will have the greatest outcome in a way that will effect
the most people for His glory
When life becomes all about him and not about self this is when you are able to find Gods peace

It does not matter how long it takes as long as your goal is to find God and to seek him
with all of your mind all of your heart and all of your soul , you will find Him

Only a Prideful Fool will not
Change his Foolish ways
But a Man pursuing Righteousness has an
Obligation to Change

____________________________________________________________

Just because a door closes in one area of your life does not mean that it is not God's will for you
He may be giving you an opportunity to turn to him and seek him
Look at Moses when he went to Pharaoh
it seemed as if God had closed the door and yet he consulted God time and time again
And God's will was ultimately done in every scenario

____________________________________________________________

If you are not WILLING to Pursue Truth
In your walk with Christ
Then you are Wasting Your time
Because in your Pursuit of Christ
There will be Nothing but Truth
Revealed to You
How You handle that Truth
Determines your Spiritual Growth

____________________________________________________________

Being broken over Your sin is Not necessarily a bad thing
However you should be Concerned if you are
No Longer broken over Your sin
This means you have become Comfortable and Complacent with God

____________________________________________________________

Absolute Sincerity from within the Heart Mind Body and Soul is the difference between connecting with the
Creator Almighty God
Through the miracle of Faith that
Births this Awesome Experience
Known as A Relationship with
God


____________________________________________________________

I can Absolutely
Assure you Coffee has Prevented Many of Deaths
Someone will no what I mean when I say this

____________________________________________________________

Being awakened to the Fact of
Your own Sin & that there is such a thing
Is the beginning Revelation
That one will indeed be in Need OF
The SAVIOR

____________________________________________________________

Going about living in this world
under your own strength will inevitably end
with the knowledge that this is not only a burden
but an unnecessary one
Pride is standing in the way of calling out to the God
who will carry your burdens and give You
HIS STRENGTH to walk in this life Into the next

____________________________________________________________

Allow Christ to be not Only
Savior of your life but allow
His Lordship over your life
Your Life will never be the same
Again

____________________________________________________________

Love Seeks ways to fulfill
Gods Will in Your Life

____________________________________________________________

Love Yourself enough to
Overcome fear
Love can Conquer fear
Do not allow fear to Conquer Love
Living In fear is
Not
Loving Yourself
But allowing fear to have Dominion over your life
____________________________________________________________

If We would put as much thought
into Disappointing Our Perfect & Holy God
As much as we do in Disappointing people
Are Spiritual growth would Grow Exponentially

____________________________________________________________

If You are not in Divine Order
You had better figure out why & quickly
The longer it takes to do so
The longer the road will be to get back into
Divine Order


____________________________________________________________

ONLY THE HAND OF GOD
Could have me working with child molesters
in a small group in prison to help them lead a productive life after prison.

Jesus always searched out what the world views as throw aways .
Being sexually abused by 2 different males for a period of about 7 yrs as a kid
to overcoming that Through the power of God & the work of The Holy Spirit

You Know IT COULD ONLY BE GOD directing this course !!
I start the 17th Pray for me

____________________________________________________________


The Christian life is far Greater Than mere talk
people Should begin to Recognize
The Christ that is Indeed Dwelling Within You
They should see you exhibiting Christ Nature
If they can Not see this
You need to check yourself
For it Should be quite Evident
____________________________________________________________

I have the Receipt called the Bible
I The Extended Warranty called the Holy Spirit
The Debt has been Paid in Full
I am Covered by the Blood of Jesus

____________________________________________________________

Do not take back what CHRIST has taken from you
This INCLUDES your Past
____________________________________________________________

Try to speak to God about your past
& He shall Reply
I NO NOT OF WHICH YOU SPEAK
For He has dealt with it already on the Cross
So why try to deal with something that he no longer Remembers

____________________________________________________________

Next time your flesh or the enemy
wants Dominion over you
Pull out the Word of God and Renounce the LIES
The Power is There to Use if
YOU Choose
Not to Pick it up & use it
That is on
YOU
NOT God
____________________________________________________________

You know your becoming a Man when you begin
Handling YOUR Responsibilities instead of YOUR
Responsibilities
Handling you
If not your only Becoming
More & More Irresponsible
____________________________________________________________

Man has no business
Trying to determine his or hers
"Goodness"
For none is Good but The Father
So next time you say I am a good person
By who's standard yours or Gods
Maybe when you get your own
Universe maybe than you can make that determination
Until than ONLY
The Great I AM is GOOD

____________________________________________________________


Faith Demonstrates Love
Love Demonstrate Christ
Both Should be an Honest
Reflection of a Christian

____________________________________________________________

The Fruit of The Spirit
This is how people will know
IF you are who you say you are
No Fruit No Spirit
No Joke

____________________________________________________________

I fear change
& yet when fearing change
Becomes bigger than the fear of God
Nothing happens
For the Fear of God should
Enable Change to be EASY

____________________________________________________________

Out of Brokenness The Unparalleled
Beauty of Poetry & Expression is formed out of the Ashes
Power rises up to relate and connect with one anthers souls
This changes lives

____________________________________________________________

I fear change
& yet when fearing change
Becomes bigger than the fear of God
Nothing happens
For the Fear of God should
Enable Change to be EASY

____________________________________________________________

Allowing Christ to be Savior is not that difficult
Allowing Christ to be LORD of my life is not only difficult
But it Requires Submission to His will His way His rules
Abandoning my own
When I do allow His LORDSHIP
It is only than I am in DIVINE ORDER

____________________________________________________________

When Faith through Christ is Allowed to deal with our
Weakness they in turn become our Greatest Strength

____________________________________________________________

We must arm our attitudes in the Fact
The Christ suffered in the body for Our sins
Knowing this Expect that
When sins Must be put to death
That there Will Be suffering

____________________________________________________________
Educated Sophisticated people with there rational and reasoning write
books to describing a meaningless universe to find meaning in their conclusions lol

____________________________________________________________

Making a Mistake is not the issue
Everyone makes a Mistakes
The issue is in the Handling of the Mistake
Do not make Excuses if it is your fault OWN it & take steps to insure it does not happen again
If is not your fault figure out what you can do on your end to lesson the chances of the mistake happening again
____________________________________________________________

I realized while taking an extra long steaming hot shower watching all of the excess water swirl
down the drain and thought what a blessing it is to have running water let alone water to drink
Man we just do nit realize how truly blessed we really are

____________________________________________________________

For the Heart of man is Deceitfully Wicked
Therefore I want to know Your heart
The heart of Christ take me a little deeper
Take me to the depths of your heart
Search mine and remove Anything that is not like you
Remove it

____________________________________________________________


Where the Spirit of the Lord is there
You will Find Freedom
Chains are Broken Deliverance is Found and Wisdom Beyond Measure Walk IN
The Spirit of the Lord
There is Freedom

____________________________________________________________

Don't you realize man was the First to give birth?
After Eve

He said alrighty than now you take it from here

____________________________________________________________

With out
ACCOUNTABILITY
Compromise and then Destruction is soon to follow

____________________________________________________________

A True Friend will Always speak the
Uncomfortable Truth
Although few & Far between
They rise to the occasion to
Tell you what you Need to Know
vs
what you Want to hear

____________________________________________________________

While blaming others for Your Own mistakes
you Miss the Opportunity to do the most Important things one can do in that situation & that is to
Learn & GROW otherwise your giving more power over to people expecting them to change instead of changing Self

____________________________________________________________

This Nation was Founded by Christians
first called Puritans
Not pilgrims Founded this Nation the Moral Decay we see today is Directly Linked
to the Removal of God in our schools, government, & our homes
When God was the Center piece of America like it is Suppose to be It Flourished
Look at us now
____________________________________________________________

I tried being an atheist and all that was before me was my sin
& misery life had no meaning
Now that I have given my life to Christ my sin has been taken away I have Joy & have meaning with purpose


____________________________________________________________

Seeing Christ will surely drive one to Repentance
If thou has not Repented
Than it is safe to say You have Never seen nor Know Him

____________________________________________________________

It's Truly not all about the Amount of Faith One has
It is However the Sincerity of
The Faith That makes the difference

____________________________________________________________

Those who find fault with The Cup of The Everlasting
Shall Not be excluded from Drinking
For in due time they
Will Not only be Convinced but they Will be Satisfied

let me apologize right now because that is not and will never be my intent. My post are meant for reflection & self examination. If you do not agree with my post or my faith that is fine everyone is at a different place in their life & also has the right to believe in what they want . I will not argue or debate i just want to share what i feel the holy spirit directs me to write. If you feel it is not for you than that is just fine but if it touches you and causes you to reflect and take inventory of your life that is also great . I also believe god gives us all we need to overcome our situations & circumstances .He gives us all we need to accomplish this . It is up to us to do the work. i always try to be honest & come with the truth and yes it hurts sometimes so brace yourself . if you can not handle it than stop now
and turn back. if you disagree with it that is fine feel free to make your own thread please do not read if
you do not take into consideration what this disclaimer explains . now it is on you . peace & blessings and may you be blessed and inspired to go to work

If God is not the center of your ways you might want to take inventory and ask why
For his ways are definitely not our ways but Much Higher why wouldn't you want that


___________________________________________________________

Where sin Is found Rest Assured Grace Abounds more Abundantly Bigger Stronger more Powerful
But one must truly be broken over the sin For such Grace to be found

___________________________________________________________
Your Grace is ALL I
Need
Your Mercy Reigns
You O Lord
You ALONE
Sustains
ME

___________________________________________________________

The Awareness of Sin did Not just appear out of nowhere
it did Not pop out of Thin air
Sin is Not man-made
Conviction that God lays upon Every man woman's and even children's Hearts
This is were the Awareness of Sin comes From

___________________________________________________________
Science is a tiny little peak at the Brilliance of GOD

___________________________________________________________

The only reason people deny the existence of God is so that they can run around being
their own
___________________________________________________________

One if the biggest reasons some will never be able to fully reconcile themselves with God
is because they are not Willing to give up the one thing most dear to them that Christ died for
That being Their PAST

___________________________________________________________

For one to out run their troubles
is an Impossibility
for your troubles have far greater Stamina and Determination
than your own ability to put any meaningful distance between you and your troubles
No matter where you go to matter how far you go
your troubles will be there waiting for you
So stand and fight and Overcome

I wrote this one day before that tragedy at Sandy Hook happen


I cannot believe how far away from God our schools have gone
When God was in our schools you didn't need metal detectors

___________________________________________________________
Parents it is your job to teach your children
in the way that they should go
Do not leave it up to schools
to fill their heads with all of the shenanigans
This nation was built on godly principles
Not the lies they are filling our kids heads with
Do not allow your children to think we came from apes
when is the last time anything morphed into something else else? O yea right Never

Just woke up to this evil

whenever I want if someone does not like it

Prayers please May God be exalted to the highest may he use me in the full capacity at which he created me
For this moment may these prisoners see in me Christ

I am going to minister to child molesters and sex offenders At the Lansing prison prayers needed earnestly please

___________________________________________________________

At Lansing correctional facility
about to preach the gospel please pray that there be no glory found For myself
but all glory be exalted to the one who sent me here
Pray That hearts be softened and minds going to receive

___________________________________________________________

I witness grown men hardened by life & its hardships in prison
Hearts Melting like butter breaking down with tears as God had used my testimony to penetrate their being

Truly humbled like never before I have never witnessed Anything so Powerful in my life
I am Amazed at Gods Grace i truly realize what serving is all about to see people as Christ sees us ALL I asked for Christ to be Lord of my life and what did that look like ?and over the last few weeks he has shown me

To Do what He would Do Go where He would Go it ended up being a place I honestly do not think i would have gone. To a max prison to witness to child molesters sex offenders addicts and more . I have to admit that was never in my plans .

But as i reflect He has been grooming me for this from the church i attend to the places he has sent me the books i have read and the people He has placed in my life .
Man today i saw the power of God take this wretch of a man that i am and use me for His Will His Purpose and it was better than anything i could have thought up or even imagined myself doing under my own will or ambition .

It was an honor and a privilege to be used in such a way. He used me to preach the Gospel to a gymnasium full of inmates and allowed me to teach a victim impact group for an hour . To see men with the taste of hope in their eyes their hearts pouring out with questions
and with Ernest ears wanting and hanging on every word not because of me but what God had been doing through me .

Un freaking believable to be used in such a way that the Spirit took over my lips and poured out in 2 and a half hours unscripted knowledge wisdom and power that could only have come from on high Wow

___________________________________________________________

I witness a young man realize for the first time that he was someone that he was somebody and as he teared up and told me "thank you my heart was touched for the first time"

and as he slapped his chest lightly in tears and said " for me man that is something"

He was standing in unbelief that it had happened that God penetrated his heart and showed him that he could be a child of God

realizing that God loved him and through me he could see that he could be changed

I am in tears thinking wow He is going to make it he has something he had never had
HOPE

___________________________________________________________

Pride of men in all their knowledge of God
Living life as if the laws of Almighty God are not written on their hearts
Is not only a disgrace but shameful

___________________________________________________________

Doing the Will of God
Far outweighs Your
own
AMBITION

___________________________________________________________

Atheist
Someone who dims their conscious
only to continue to live life as their own God
Even though it is impossible not to believe in God
For he writes His Laws on EVERY MANS heart
So it is a conscious decision to Evade his constant attempts
To Reveal himself to you
The word says only a Fool says their is no God
Don't be that Guy

___________________________________________________________

Do Not exalt the man Exalt The One who Created the man
___________________________________________________________

It is an impossibility to quit sin
And because God has no place in all of Heaven
for sinners to dwell
You might want to consider
Accepting Salvation that which was freely Given to All sinners Through Jesus Christ

___________________________________________________________

No that Unforgiveness stems from Your own Will
Exalting Your own Will above The Most High
in doing so your heart will Continue to be Hardened
Your mind full of Strife
and your Spirit will be filled with hatred
At any given time you can choose
Willfully to Forgive and Have the Peace of God
that Surpasses ALL Understanding
dealing with sin Forever
___________________________________________________________

Man is a product of influence all around him
The will that is within man is Not a Godly will
at all
In Fact it is the exact Opposite
This is the reason one Must go to God
Seeking Purposely His Good & Perfect Will
For man's will Is deceitfully wicked
Apart from God Therefore there is no such thing
as a "good person"
For None is Truly good but The Father
___________________________________________________________

When truth is revealed to your heart
and you do not submit And Obey the Truth
Revealed
what are you really doing?
You are Willfully Disobeying
the very Will of God
For God Is Truth
The Only Way the Only Life
___________________________________________________________

Recovery is something that will be ongoing for life
Salvation is a lot like Recovery
It is something that will have to be Worked out
for the rest of this life

___________________________________________________________

Loving God is an Action
Faith must have Action to Succeed
Without Love Faith will Die
Do not Allow your Love for God
to Grow cold but Renew your Love for Him Daily
He renews his Love & Faith in All of us Daily
Praise God

There is a tree that is producing fruit
that grew out of the most terrible conditions

___________________________________________________________

Trying to Earn mans favor
instead of Drawing Nearer to God is Foolish
If God is Pleased with You
EVERYTHING else Will fall into place
___________________________________________________________

Fearing man only brings upon yourself
unnecessary anguish
For Trusting In The Lord
Not only outweighs
Any fear known to man
There is Certain Victory
In doing so

___________________________________________________________

Christ has Forgiven Your MASSIVE Debt
Paid in Full
So why do you despise your fellow brethren
over puny & petty things?
Shall you Not Forgive Anyone
Who offends
For many offenses towards God are Forgiven & Renewed
On a Daily Basis

___________________________________________________________
The reason so many people
never come to know the riches of His Glory
Is because they have to much
Faith in their Doubt

___________________________________________________________
Surely if a man were to seek God
He would show him the Foolishness
that is Bound in his heart
and Surely untangle the Prideful mess
but as it stands the fool stands bound
by his own willful disobedience to the the laws
God himself has place upon his very being
___________________________________________________________

Do not be who you are
Be who God created you to be

___________________________________________________________

Step- Father

Step Father
Steps up to the plate in place of the Absentee father
Step Father steps in the shoes of the one unwilling to walk in the shoes of FATHER
Step Father
Steps into the role every child deserves to have
Step Father
Steps his way into the lives of Gods precious gifts
Step Father
Steps in for Birthdays Holidays Every day
Step Father
Steps through life's trials ups & downs to comfort hurting little souls
The role should be reversed
I am the Father
You stepped out
I Stepped in
You are Step- father
I am the Father

Step- Father

___________________________________________________________

Sobriety is something you must Never
take for granite
Because the day I do
Is The day I will no longer
Be Sober
___________________________________________________________

He IS who He says He IS
He will do what He says He will do
If you doubt try Him
He is Not Fickle like us
Those who have never tasted
the riches if his glory could not possibly understand
Don't knock it till you have tested God's word
___________________________________________________________

When asked
The Holy Spirit will Reveal Truth
It's what you do with the revelation of that Truth
That will determine The rate of your growth
___________________________________________________________

To be captivated by God's love
is truly something to behold
To see his wonderful creation
From the sunset to the trees
Look at all that he has made
look at all he has done
what a wonderful God we serve
___________________________________________________________

Children do not need Excuses
For their Rebellion
They need Biblicly Sound
Parents that Will Not Spare The Rod
Time Out ? Please ...
___________________________________________________________

Instead of Retreating from your Own Denial
Stand and Face the Source
of Your problem take Responsibility
become Accountable
Then OVERCOME

___________________________________________________________
The quote came from Dr Lockridge
this is a truly Awesome quote
if you can halfway wrap your mind around this
than you will understand that we are nothing without the creator
God is limitless You may not say He is like
Because He is not like Anything
He simply IS



"The reason God came from nowhere,
was there was nowhere for Him to come from.
And coming from nowhere, He stood on nothing
for there was nowhere for Him to stand.
And standing on nothing, He reached out where there was nowhere to reach and caught something
where there was nothing to catch,
and hung something on nothing,
and told it to stay there.
”There is Nothing in Which to
compare
God Is The Great I Am"


___________________________________________________________

The will of God is so much better
than Anything we could come up with
It is not that people do not believe
God exists It is just they have never allowed
Him access to their life
They believe in being their own God
& God will let you
But know this you may choose to humble yourself & Acknowledge The one who spoke us all into existence
Giving up your own will & Allowing Gods good & Perfect Will to make your path strait
___________________________________________________________

My King is the key to knowledge: The wellspring of wisdom; the doorway of deliverance; the pathway of peace; the roadway of righteousness; the highway of holiness, and the gateway of glory!

His office is manifold: His promise is sure. His light is matchless. His goodness is limitless. His mercy is everlasting. His reign is Righteous. His yoke is easy, and His burden is light.

I wish I could describe Him for you, but He’s indescribable! He’s Incomprehensible! He’s invincible! He’s Irresistible!

You can’t get Him out of your mind or off your hands! You can’t out-live Him and you can’t live without Him! The Pharisees couldn’t stand Him, but they found out they couldn’t stop Him. Pilate couldn’t find any fault in Him. The witnesses couldn’t agree. Herod couldn’t kill Him. Death couldn’t handle Him, and the grave couldn’t hold Him!

That’s my King, That’s my King, That’s my King, and He’s the kingdom and the power and the glory – Forever! AMEN!!! I wonder…do you know Him?
– Rev. SM Lockridge-

Wallowing in self pity

The depths of self pity have no end

Stop feeding your fears & feed your Faith
Starve your doubts
Live your purpose In Christ
Do not listen to the world
But listen to The Word of God
Know Who you are
In Christ Jesus &
Know Who's you are
Now walk In The newness
Of Christ

___________________________________________________________

Being a Christian is a full time duty
not part time
You do not want a part time God
Therefore stop calling on God
only when it is convenient for you
Be about The Fathers business
Not your own

I do not understand how marriages are failing
& yet there are only about 20 people in marriage enrichment at church
Then wonder why things are not working .

Everyone Talks about Change in the new year
but still want to live the Old lifestyle
Everyone wants change but Not WILLING
to put in the WORK
Stop talking about Change
Do The Work & Live it out
___________________________________________________________
God will not be mocked
Men who mock God will
See the harvest they have sown
Pay attention when the harvest
comes
You will notice things no longer
Swinging in your favor
but chaos and dysfunction all around you
Reaping what you have sown
___________________________________________________________

We all have choices
You can wallow in your own guilt and shame of the past
You can wallow in your self pity
or you can
CHANGE

God is the real hero of the Bible. Why do so many Bible characters have serious flaws? The answer is simple. That’s all God has to work with. All the perfect people are in heaven. The only ones on earth are the folks with serious weaknesses. The talent pool has always been pretty thin when it comes to moral perfection. God works with sinners because that’s all he has to work with. In heaven we will all be vastly improved–perfected by God’s grace. But until then, he uses some pretty ornery and shallow people who fall short in many ways, and he does some amazing things through them.

I finally understand why light has to Burn
So it can withstand the darkness
All around it
It is hard to be a light in a dark place
Now i also get a sense of what
Our Savior went through
Go be a light in this dark would
Otherwise how will they see

___________________________________________________________

This world in its fallen state
Only wants compromise & justification so they may live in their own darkness
Trading Truth for lies Enabling them to rot in their sin of "Freedom"
but really this Freedom they have Exchanged for Truth
Has Imprisoned them
All so they can justify their Sinful lifestyles & Disobedience
True Freedom is found Through Christ
The freedom through Christ Breaks the shackles of the Worlds systems and views of Immorality as Morality & replaces it with
Truth

Give your self over to God and give him full control

and yet one must properly love him or her self
In order to truly bless
Love expects nothing back it is pure in its true form
Learn to Love so others may be blessed

___________________________________________________________

Are you worth your salt
Have you retained your freshness?
For you are to be the salt of the earth
The flavor the light for others to see
If you have lost your saltiness
You are not fit for service of God

___________________________________________________________


God does not see an inmate
He sees His Child in need of Him
He sees potential were the world sees a throw away
God sees a testimony to be used to Glorify Him
While man sees a monster
Thank God for His Mercy His Grace
& most of all
His Forgiveness

___________________________________________________________

Do not take a mole hill and allow it to transition into a MOUNTAIN
Learn and grow
and allow yourself to be better for it

___________________________________________________________

“Follow me.” This is the command
So I ask who are you following?
Get as far away from self as possible
In All your ways Acknowledge that Him
& He shall Direct your path

___________________________________________________________

The Lord has raised these dry bones
He has breathed New Life into these bones
marrow and blood
HE has done it for me he will most Certainly do it for you
Have FAITH

___________________________________________________________

It is not so so much the kingdom of heaven is something to be grasped
but it is the secret things of God that he reveals
It is the deep thing he reveals
to those who have faith enough to receive it

___________________________________________________________

When the Lord draws near to thine own heart
The soul recognize his unmistakable presence
For who are thee to deserve such attention from
He that has told the stars where to sit
O that God would be mindful of me is truly something
To behold

___________________________________________________________

For those who have embraced chaos
their whole life
The Realm in which you have lived in
This dimension of dysfunction
That you are comfortable in and thriving in
Know that there is a peace that surpasses all understanding through Christ Jesus

___________________________________________________________

When you have accepted things for what they are
you will live it out
The only catch with this is
that works both ways
good and bad

___________________________________________________________

It is perfectly fine to express ones self
But one must do it through the avenues
in which Christ has given unto thee
Express yourself Through
Christ & watch & be Amazed
At the Difference

___________________________________________________________

Those of us who are In the body of Christ
are Called
To Engage in Spiritual Warfare
If you are Not putting on the Full Armor of God
Daily
How can you expect to win the
Many battles we face
You who are Spiritual need to recognize
you are not merely dealing with people
you are dealing with spirits within the people

___________________________________________________________

You will never out run your problems
Stand and Fight rage war against your problems
and OVERCOME them
Or they will CONTINUE to overcome you
Otherwise shut up

___________________________________________________________

Apart from Christ we are nothing
the air we breathe
The breath of life all comes from above
We live because he allows us to live
we are here to serve one another not our own agendas

___________________________________________________________

Men & Woman of God
Who are Truly born again
Need not be whipped and prodded
In order to seek God to Love God to want to know God more intimately because
Your New Nature Yearns for this

___________________________________________________________

With so many deceitful advertisements all around us
Ask yourself
Are you one of them
Are you representing Christ or the world

___________________________________________________________

In the Valley is where you will grow the most
because you will find yourself looking towards the Heavens

___________________________________________________________

Representing Christ under your own power
Will do reprehensible harm
All it takes is one misrepresentation of Christ to
Damage and influence many
Represent Christ through the Spirit
And you will not have to worry about this

___________________________________________________________

Please be aware that many are watching your walk with Christ
You are an Ambassador of the Most High King
The world is looking for opportunity to dismiss Christ
Do Not give any reason for such accusations

___________________________________________________________

Conformity to this world
Is so dam easy
Conformity to the image of
CHRIST now this
is Not so Easy
___________________________________________________________

There are many who know not of the Extravagant Gift
of
The Holy Spirit
They can not understand or Comprehend it
Because they do not have it

___________________________________________________________

GOD takes lost baggage and claims it as his own
He gives life where death is found
He gives when he should take
He loves when he should reject
God can take what was broken & pieces it back together
He offers good in return for bad
But most of all he Loves he just simply Loves

Husband and Wife should not be the same in everything
They should not be a perfect match

Christ LOVE is for us ALL
His Great Love does not Discriminate
Come to him for HE Loves You
Wholeheartedly Unconditionally
AGAPE

___________________________________________________________

I have been known to stray
Lord hold on
Hold on to me & Keep me
Keep my mind keep my feet on the Narrow path
for the wide path is far to easy
You & you Alone Lord are PERFECT
Keep this frail man upright

The Lord Thy God

He Alone oversees every
Divine Appointed triumph
God Almighty Oversees
The Overcomers of this world
He SIMPLY

___________________________________________________________

To petition God is ok
But is it not far better
To Listen to what He
Is saying to you?
We do a lot of praying
I tell you that you will receive
So much More by doing Less Talking
and more Listening

___________________________________________________________

This the closet description of ALMIGHTY GOD that I have Ever read .
And it still does Not come close to Describing My King
This will make you think how Awesome our God is
You might even want to shout

___________________________________________________________
-SM LOCKRIDGE -

“He’s enduringly strong, He’s entirely sincere, He’s eternally steadfast. He’s immortally graceful. He’s imperially powerful. He’s impartially merciful. He’s God’s Son. He’s a sinner’s savior. He’s the centerpiece of civilization. He stands alone in Himself. He’s unparalleled. He’s unprecedented. He’s supreme. He’s preeminent. He’s the loftiest idea in literature. He’s the highest idea in philosophy. He’s the fundamental truth in theology. He’s the miracle of the age. He’s the only one able to supply all of our needs simultaneously. He supplies strength for the weak. He’s available for the tempted and the tried. He sympathizes and He saves. He guards and He guides. He heals the sick, He cleans the lepers. He forgives sinners, He discharges debtors, He delivers captives, He defends the feeble, He blesses the young, He serves the unfortunate, He regards the aged, He rewards the diligent, He beautifies the meek. Do you know Him?

Well, my king is the king of knowledge, He’s the well-spring of wisdom, He’s the doorway of deliverance, He’s the pathway of peace, He’s the roadway of righteousness, He’s the highway of holiness He’s the gateway of glory, He’s the master of the mighty, He’s the captain of the conquerors, He’s the head of the heroes, He’s the leader of the legislators, He’s the overseer of the overcomers, He’s the governor of governors, He’s the prince of princes, He’s the king of Kings and the Lord of Lords.

His life is matchless. His goodness is limitless. His mercy is everlasting. His love never changes. His word is enough. His grace is sufficient. His reign is righteous. His yoke is easy and His burden is light. Well. I wish I could describe Him to you. But He’s indescribable. Yes. He’s incomprehensible. He’s invincible, He’s irresistible. I’m trying to tell you, the Heavens cannot contain Him, let alone a man explain Him. You can’t get Him out of your mind. You can’t get Him off of your hands. You can’t outlive Him, and you can’t live without Him. Well. The Pharisees couldn’t stand Him, but they found out they couldn’t stop Him. Pilate couldn’t find any fault in Him. Herod couldn’t kill Him. Death couldn’t handle Him and the grave couldn’t hold Him. That’s my king!

He always has been, and He always will be. I’m talking about He [who] had no predecessor and He [who] has no successor. There was nobody before Him and there will be nobody after Him. You can’t impeach Him, and He’s not going to resign. We try to get prestige and honor and glory to ourselves, but the glory is all His. Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever, and ever, and ever, and ever. How long is that? And ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and when you get through with all of the forevers, then 'Amen'."

“Oh I wish I could describe him to you.”


___________________________________________________________

Continue having integrity in the face of adversity
Keep your character intact
Even when someone intends to do you wrong
Continue on the righteous path
And let God exact his righteous
And perfected judgement

___________________________________________________________

One can not live apart from God
In Fact one must live Through God
Allowing Christ Into your life is Giving him Consent
To Abide in you to Live IN you
But most importantly Through you

___________________________________________________________

You want nothing to do with God
Because you are to busy running around being your own God
So when I try to tell you about The one true God
Your like woe woe woe
I am perfectly fine being my own God

___________________________________________________________

Jesus in his infinite wisdom does not do unnecessary things in your life On the contrary
in his infinite wisdom he will put you in situations and circumstances
to cause you to grow in ways you would've never imagined
___________________________________________________________

When you are of the world you just have problems
When you are saved and have the blessings of God
You do not just have problems because the problems you do have are
Good problems to have because their ultimately going to teach you
and allow you to Grow through your problems


___________________________________________________________

Christ died so You could live
So why are you Choosing to live
Beneath your means ?
Let Christ work Through you
Allow him to make you usable
SUBMIT

___________________________________________________________

When you Allow
The Holy Spirit to LEAD & GUIDE you
You quickly realize how little we do know
How Infinite is the Wisdom from the One on High
The same Spirit that Raised Christ from death
IS WITHIN us
Do Not Ignore It or Wasted its PRECIOUS
LORDSHIP & LEADERSHIP
For this is FOOLISHNESS
___________________________________________________________

Most people put Themselves
In Situations & Circumstances that are wrong
Than want to shake their fist At the God
After they Chose to Ignore ALL the warning Signs
of The Spirit that he gave All of us
They want a life without Any accountability for Themselves
When you do this you set yourself above The Most High

I tell you This is Absurd

___________________________________________________________
You are being blessed for having a God that will allow you to Grow Through these difficult times

in the only way that would allow you to grow in such a way to ultimately be Conformed to the image of Christ .

The Blessing comes from the Lesson but Only
If you get the lesson that is
If not you will keep going round & round until you do
Submit and get the lesson than and only than shall you be not only blessed but a blessing to others

___________________________________________________________

What do We know of the Most Holy God
that spoke us into existence
This God that stretched forth And grab something where there was nothing and hung it on nothing and told it to stay there
The God we have all Made too small and you are trying to tell me he can't help you with your problem

___________________________________________________________
I am not saying all Catholics are bad or saying they are not saved
Just trying to open the eyes of the blind
Catholics pray to marry show me this in the bible Catholics ask mere man
"the pope "
to be redeemed or absolved of sin , show me this in the bible
They call mere man the holy father and even kneel before him this is Blaspheme I tell you
I believe the Catholic church is the great Whore revelations talks about
stop going to mass and listening to this ritualistic baloney spewed forth and stop listening to all the false doctrines
Read your bible for Yourself let the Holy Spirit Interpret the word of God Not the FALSE church of Catholicism

___________________________________________________________

Ask yourself this
There was a time when you knew that God was with you and walked with you
You sought him you searched and prayed to him fervently
Now that that all hell has broken loose in your life
You have the audacity to ask were is God
All the while He continues to ask WHERE ARE YOU

___________________________________________________________

The Pope is stepping down GOOD he is worthless in ALL the coverups of Childhood sexual abuse
that he ALLOWED before and after he took the position
BY BY
I wish the Catholic PERCH would wake up and become a real Church imagine what they could do if they were not an organization or government dictatorship
The possibilities would be endless !!
But no they have to be a pedophilia hiding evil scheming self protecting making up rules as they go alone organization A WOLF in SHEEP'S clothing
The biggest Scheme the Enemy has cooked up thus fare and drones of people are following this SATANIC DEMONSTRATIVE Roman EMPIRE

___________________________________________________________

The victim mentality will have you swimming in self pity with no
end in sight no land of reality to swim to just endless swimming in the realm of self pity

___________________________________________________________

In the midst of extreme pain and anguish
that someone has caused you there is an overwhelming chance to show the Sacrifice of self
and show the love of Christ
The grace that he shares & extends to each of us daily
There is an opportunity to share Christ the Christ that dwells within
wants to be shown and be expressed through action

___________________________________________________________

Some only come with intent in disguise
to want to know your problems
Only to get the information
Once Received
than its off to the Gossip circle
Be mindful of this some things are better off not spoken

___________________________________________________________

I am to be an example of The Heavenly Father
here on earth God has Entrusted me with the honor of representing this
Very Special duty as an earthy Father
Knowing this I am to extend Grace as he would extend his grace
To the children he has given me I am to forgive the painful offenses my children may inflict
I GET IT

___________________________________________________________

Through Pain the understanding of Gods wonderful touch
may be realized
When Allowed
if
Not than there is just pain

___________________________________________________________

Grace keeps me from hitting the floor
Grace allows me to see others from God's prospective
Grace captures my heart and takes it prisoner in order to see clearly
If not there is only self
I want to be as fare away from self as possible
Extend Grace live it out
Be Grace Amazing

___________________________________________________________

There are so many people trying to discredit Christ
instead of looking for ways to just simply Believe
Their agenda is to discredit Christ in order to
live their life for themselves
___________________________________________________________

Everyone has this thing called a Conscious
and people try to justify themselves when they break the laws God has placed upon each of us
The problem is that justification can Not come from yourself
Justification Only comes From Christ

___________________________________________________________

You will have to change your view of God
in order to fulfill the lust of your flesh
Your view will turn to compromise
your theology of Everything you no to be true about God will change in order to Justify your actions
The problem is that God is Not going to compromise or change Recognize you have

___________________________________________________________

Those of us who are saved by the grace of God are holy all you have to do is accept that fact Now live it out

___________________________________________________________

The more you fall in Love with
Christ
Determines your level of Obedience
___________________________________________________________

Do Not give someone else the power to hinder your Spiritual
GROWTH why would you Allow someone to occupy that much space in your life

___________________________________________________________

You Must Hear
You Must Do & Apply
The spoken Word that is taught
Through the man or woman of God
whom God has used to speak to you in order to give you the Wisdom & Knowledge you need to Grow
If you do not apply this
You will get what you always have gotten
NOTHING

___________________________________________________________

The enemy is constantly reminding you
where you have been & where you've come from
The problem with this is
He Conveniently leaves out
just how fare you have come
And what you have Overcome


___________________________________________________________

I am Property of The Lord Jesus Christ Adopted Into The Royal Family
This makes me Special this makes me Royalty
What you didn't no?

Walking on the path of Truth is a very hard road to travel
The way of falsehood and denial is a road traveled all to easy
Many choose this path
At the end of the day the path of Truth will lead to Freedom
The road of falsehood and denial is a road to nowhere
___________________________________________________________

Until you come into the Knowledge that
HE IS
HE just simply IS
And your NOT
Your faith will never get to be where it needs to be

___________________________________________________________

Why run from the will of God
For surely there is no comfort to be found in running
In fact much heartache and mischief will in ensue
Apart from Christ you will surely & inevitably end up chained to sin
Stay in the will of God and avoid this altogether

___________________________________________________________

The reason it is a huge offense to God to blaspheme
The Holy Spirit
Is because it is the very Truth
people have to purposely ignore
In order to do it
The Holy Spirit is God speaking to you through
The Spirit

___________________________________________________________

Frauds are meant to be
Exposed
Much like a fraudulent Christian
The Fruit will indeed be missing
Exposing the lie

___________________________________________________________

A mega Company with over 1 Billion shareholders is seeking a new CEO.
The name of the company? VATICAN.

___________________________________________________________

Through suffering one can find discipline and ultimately change
If you allow Growth to take place
Do not suffer in vein

___________________________________________________________

One Must be Desperate
For God in & out of Season
Do not only be Desperate
For God when things are not going your way
He IS Worthy to be yearned & long for even when things are going horrible wrong

___________________________________________________________

A selfish life is no life at all
However Living a selfless life
Is life in abundance

___________________________________________________________

The stronger your relationship with God the easier it will be to leave your sin behind
The closer you get to God
The further away from you're Sin you will be

___________________________________________________________

I believe one of the biggest reasons we need faith is because
There is always something to be worked on
you never feel as if you Have arrived
because with faith you are always looking for something you cannot tangibly see
Yet understand there is always somewhere to be going

___________________________________________________________

There is so much pain in hanging on to the past
Let it go talk about it bring the past into discussion
Bring it out because it has kept you in a dungeon fare to long
Shine a light on it so it can be consumed by the light
It is so freeing

___________________________________________________________

Stop trying to make sense of God
He is unfathomable to our minds
Our minds could never give Him his Just Due
Lean NOT to your own Understanding but in ALL your ways
Acknowledge Him and HE shall direct your path
If you always need to make sense of God you will
Never reach your Full potential IN CHRIST
___________________________________________________________

Allow your weakness
To Draw you Closer to
God not Further Away
Your weakness is by design
It is to bring you to your knees
So you may draw near to Him
Your weakness will ultimately become your Strength

___________________________________________________________

Loosen your grip on things that are fleeting
Than release them altogether
For these are things that will parish
Strengthen your grip on things eternal
Things of the everlasting

___________________________________________________________

The things of this world have your attention because
you give your attention over to them
Priorities are what You make them
Christ will not command your attention
Just realize he is patiently waiting for it


___________________________________________________________

We live in Gods world that is Reality
We do not live in the imaginary world that Darwin created
Where nothing exploded & created everything with no purpose or meaning
In fact we live in a God created reality with purpose & meaning

___________________________________________________________

Live life excepting God and the things of God not rejecting God and the things of God

___________________________________________________________

A lot of people are Ever hearing but never learning
Pursuing self
Not pursuing Holiness
In order to please our Heavenly Father you Must pursue Holiness
otherwise what's the point

___________________________________________________________

If you are living the exact same life & lifestyle you were before you claimed to have been born again
than stop claiming that you are
because it is an Impossibility to be born again & not change
Will it happen all at once?
Of course not
but if you are born again you will change and you will bear fruit
if you do not than you are lying to yourself & dishonoring
God

___________________________________________________________

Do you merely seek out
God because of his promises
Or do you seek out God because of his Presence
When you begin to seek out God
For his Presence the Promises
Will manifest through his Presence not the other way around

___________________________________________________________

Just because something is wrong for you does not make it Universally Wrong for everyone else
because God is going to speak to Your spirit right where YOU are
Not where everyone else should be


___________________________________________________________

The mind wants to dismiss God
But mans heart knows His Existence
His soul speaks to the mind to confirm
Denial is futile Gods Reign is Eminent
The struggle continues for mans quest to be his own god

___________________________________________________________

Do not allow a bunch of "Religious" people to send you on a detour
Religious people start wars and proclaim a Different Gospel of Christ
If they were to become Spiritual & Filled with The Spirit
They would live & walk in truth
Love they Neighbor as Yourself

Love your family get things right
do not let the little stupid things
that we let get in our way
instead of forgiving and realizing
we ALL make mistakes and we all fall down
We just need to realize this is borrowed time
and that life truly is a gift and it is a wonderful thing
___________________________________________________________

God has brought me out of Egypt
When I stopped making Excuses
When I stopped believing what I couldn't do
& what God has not done
I am no longer wondering in the Desert
because I no longer doubt God
He IS
He just Simply IS
I know without a doubt
He has brought me out of Egypt

___________________________________________________________
God is going to Conform You to the image of Christ
by Any means necessary
The reason it becomes so hard is because we tend to fight it every step of the way

___________________________________________________________

Finding strength In The Lord
Is a lot easier than finding strength in self
Self is limited where Gods strength
Is Unlimited

___________________________________________________________

How many are Unreconciled or found not to be compatible with God?
Basically an enemy of the Creator of All that you see
This IS the purpose for Christ
To Reconcile you & allow you to be compatible with God
Forgiving your sins So that you may be In right standing with a Perfect and Holy Creator

___________________________________________________________

If you do not understand God
it is because you are in your natural state
only a spiritual person can understand the things of God
For it is foolish to the carnal naturally minded man
But to those who are spiritual
God only reveals the things of God to them
___________________________________________________________

I am no longer blind for now I See
But I tell you
It is Not with my eyes that I see
For it is far greater than that
To be able to recognize my True condition

___________________________________________________________

As long as there is TODAY
The Lord wants you to give it to Him
that gave it to you
Today does Not belong to you
TODAY is a gift & it is not Promised

___________________________________________________________

There is Power In but ONE name
& lets be perfectly Honest
It is not our own name
But the name of Jesus
This is where our help comes from
In the name of Jesus
Our Strength comes from this One Name
For we are very limited in our own strength
Through Christ Jesus Strength is LIMITLESS
___________________________________________________________

God searches the in most being
The Heart
If Anyone knew what dwelt there
you would not dare be able to look them in the eye
Without revolt
& yet people still walk around full of their own Pride
Thinking they need not The Saviour Christ Jesus
The Only ONE who came to cleanse the wretchedness
& sin from the hearts of men & woman
What audacity

___________________________________________________________
God's word still sustains even after 2,000+yrs
The measure of His Love abounds still to this very day
He died so that we could live
If you are one who does not live to Glorify God
Than you must be glorifying self & that Always ends in Misery
___________________________________________________________

The Lord has called you for His Purpose
If you are attempting to live life according to your own
Purpose you will inevitably be unfulfilled

___________________________________________________________

Time will not wait for you
Time will continue to pass you by
Time is merciless
A love one can die on Friday & time will continue on With no mercy
Life continues and Monday is still coming
Time will not wait for mourning to be completed
Time just expects you to be strong As it continually passes by
Gobbling up every second minute and hour of everyday
Regardless of the situations and circumstances we must keep moving
We must keep going and growing
Know that Time is going to keep moving with or without us
If you are preparing and have been working tirelessly on your life
When life does come at you , you may handle it
Instead of it handling you
Something you Need to know & Understand is
That there no Time to waste Time is Precious
___________________________________________________________

The denial of God
does not do anything but strengthen Gods case
for Righteousness
For mans Pride
tries to Exalt himself above God
in doing so Acknowledges God

___________________________________________________________

An atheist can deny God
But they will never be able to deny the flat out rebellion going on in their hearts
They will never be able to deny the sin in their life
They must continue to prove to themselves they are their own God
& with this there shall never be peace in their spirit
___________________________________________________________

You can not help everyone
Only Christ can do for them what He did for you
You have to discern when other peoples weakness is stronger than your strength

___________________________________________________________

Just because God delivers you from something
does Not mean the war is over
We still have our fallen nature
The moment you believe this you will fall
The enemy wants you to believe you are no longer a target Delivered yes safe No

___________________________________________________________

When God has not opened the eyes of "the blind"
They will continue to think The spiritual things of God are foolish
Do not be mad at them because God has not chosen to open there eyes
Instead Love them until He does

___________________________________________________________

When you say that there is no God
Deep down in your core
You know this Not to be true
Ask yourself HONESTLY
Why is that

___________________________________________________________

Why do we find ourselves in a race against people
& they are not even aware of it ?
Be content with what The Lord has provided you with
Steward it well & more shall be given
If not it shall be taken away

___________________________________________________________

There is a certain responsibility on our part
to scatter the seeds the Lord gives us
On fertile ground
we should not scanner aimlessly

___________________________________________________________

Why do so called Christians live their life
as if hell is not real?
Living life the same as they did before
their so called conversion
How can you be converted without converting?

___________________________________________________________

One must come into the Truth
that God is infinite in His wisdom
He is Good
even when we can not understand His Will
& most of all
when we do not feel His infinite wisdom
just know His Will IS best
___________________________________________________________

I believe we live in such a time in which people
are following the God they have created in their minds
This God of compromise
is NOT
The God of The Bible

___________________________________________________________

Do not make a mockery of the Gospel or of Christ
Living your life the way you desire
Living a life for Christ is indeed hard
You can forget about this "your best life now"
prosperity Crap
For to live a life for Christ
Will be the hardest thing you ever do

___________________________________________________________


It is an Impossibility for those who have tasted in in the Heavenly Gift
Of The knowledge of God
To dismiss his Calling
To dismiss his Enlightened way
One may try but HE has already imprinted His Law on your Heart
Denial is Futile

___________________________________________________________



When you set yourself up against The Most High God
In all of your pride and arrogance
Understand there will be consistences
You might get by but you will not get away
___________________________________________________________





A prideful heart only boast
its own stupidity
A humble heart boast in its weakness
To give God glory

___________________________________________________________

Christ has set me free from
Alcohol abuse, Drug abuse, Sexual abuse From two different males
From the age of 7 until Almost 13, Pornography & Attempted suicide,
But most of all he freed me from myself
He did it for me and he'll do it for you !!!
Just invite him in and be willing to do the work and you will be free indeed
___________________________________________________________

If we do not Boast In our Weakness
How will God get the glory He so Justly Deserves

___________________________________________________________

Keeping it Real
Is so much better than
Keeping it Fake

___________________________________________________________

IF YOU ONLY KNEW
WHAT DEMONS WERE DOING TO YOU EVERYDAY
AND TO YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY
YOU WOULD PRAY LONGER AND CLING TO GOD FOR DEAR LIFE!!!!!

-Ilaitia Ralovo-

___________________________________________________________

We Live in the most insane Society
of all Ages where everyone believes in everything
No one Fears GOD anymore or Reveres HIM
if you only knew that your whole life is but a moment or only a few seconds
in the Span
of Eternity dividing into HELL and HEAVEN
YOU WOULD CHANGE EVERYTHING YOU DO TODAY!!!!



-Ilaitia Ralovo-
___________________________________________________________

People have erased The God of the Bible
and molded him into their lives and lifestyles
Instead of allowing God to mold them into His Will & Way

___________________________________________________________

Christianity is Far more than saying a prayer
because God will test your sincerity
The proof is when you continue in seeking and asking
& be willing to go where he leads you
He is going to Lead you Away from your Old Life
If not
Than you are apart of the counterfeit Christian society
who continues in there old nature with No Change

___________________________________________________________

The reality of Christ
Is that he not only expects change
He Commands Change
Because of the Power and Authority of The Holy Spirit
Given to Each Who Truly Are His Disciples
He Will change You And conform you to The Image of Christ


___________________________________________________________

If you are self-reliant
God cannot Use you
Peter was self-reliant and he fell God had to break his dependence upon self
His power came when he was
Totally and utterly Dependent on God

___________________________________________________________

Father Thank you for Today
for his is truly the day that You have made
Thank you Father for you loving kindness
& willingness to mold your people into the image of Christ
Thank you for allowing us to live in your will & way
I pray that above ALL things that you would have your way In us Through us for You
may Your Will be done on earth through your servants
To Advance Your Kingdom In Jesus Might
Name AMEN


___________________________________________________________

In the times of testing choose Christ
In the fiercest of the battles choose Christ
Through the fire and the flames choose Christ
And the impurities will be burned out
And in the end you Will be refined

___________________________________________________________

Have no empty Hallelujahs to The King
One must Praise Him when things Are not going according to your plan
For He is still a Great and Mighty King

___________________________________________________________

If your day is not going according to your plan
Maybe God is reminding you
It's not your plan you should be following

___________________________________________________________

Truth IS the only way to make it
In this Christian walk
Truth IS the only way
For Jesus IS truth
And HE IS the way
The only way

___________________________________________________________

Thinking about living right
And continuing to live wrong
Is nothing more than
self-deception
Thinking Without Action equals Nothing

___________________________________________________________

If you Truly Want your life to Change
Stop trying to Justify and Compromise
The Convictions of The Holy Spirit & Submit &
Obey
Only then will your Change Come

___________________________________________________________

You have the Power & Authority
To Cast out negative thoughts
Do Not allow the enemy to have Dominion over your mind

___________________________________________________________
After all is done
God Repairs the broken life that comes to Him
He Repairs & Restores
He is Very Near to the broken hearted the bruised & the wounded


___________________________________________________________

If your Heart is Filled with
Anger, Unforgiveness,&
Bitterness there is not enough room for
Love to Dwell there is no room for Christ
___________________________________________________________

The world has turned
Wrong into right
& has caused great grief upon this earth
As Morality has been Exchanged for Justification
We Need Christ More than ever

___________________________________________________________

How many are imprisoned
Incarcerated in your own mind
By your Past ? Christ has the Key to your Deliverance He Alone can Free You
___________________________________________________________

Become Fully Convinced
That God Will Do Exactly what HE says HE Will Do
Allow your Faith to Grow as such
Feed your Faith in order to Starve your Doubts
And your Faith will Grow as it Should

___________________________________________________________

We are free from the law only if we Continue
To Die Daily & pick up our Cross and follow Christ
In doing so we will automatically follow the law
Through Abiding IN The Spirit
For Christ came to fulfill the law not abolish it

___________________________________________________________

In love I submit this plea not Judgement . For those who claim to be A Christian posting All of these vulgar obscene & sensual post on facebook F this Suck that . How does this Represent Christ? We are Representing The Most High God ,be in the world not of the world .How are we suppose to "Be Set Apart"if we look like the the world & do as the world does? Why would Anyone want Christ if there is No difference in our walk than theirs? Not that I am without sin or have it altogether but we are to be working towards holiness . So i submit to you this How does this Represent our God? Peace and Blessings Pray about it

___________________________________________________________

Drawing nearer to God
Will In Fact Enable
Your Faith to Increase
When Faith Increases
Only than will your
Level of Obedience
Increase
___________________________________________________________

Do Not take Life's Presence
For Granted
The Gift of life can be taken
In a Blink of an eye
Love Today do Not put it off
Until Tomorrow
For Tomorrows Presence
May Cease to Exist

___________________________________________________________

Learn to Control your thoughts
Do Not Allow your thoughts to Dictate & Control you
You have a choice to cast them out
or Allow them to take you on a
Self Destructive journey
Realize that It is a Choice
Live by The Spirit Not of the flesh

___________________________________________________________

Gods Grace Will only Penetrate through the the phony Façade if you are Submissive
and Allow Him In
He Will Only come in if you Invite Him In
other wise you will Always Be
Unsatisfied with who you Really Aren't
___________________________________________________________

Do Not go around Portraying a Christian
In order to be a Christian you Must be Authentic
If you are a Fraud Your Hoax will be
EXPOSED for Who your are NOT

___________________________________________________________

Stop Pretending that you Belong to yourself
Once you have been Truly Saved
YOU Belong To Christ for He paid for your Rights
ALL of them with A High Price
He Died so you can Live Free
YOU ARE NOT YOUR OWN

___________________________________________________________

When people say "I need to go out and Kick it"
What they are Really saying is " I am going to go LOOSE myself"
I am going to go out and Live the way I want to
This is Not the Life Christ Died for you to LIVE


___________________________________________________________

There is no Greater Joy than doing the Perfect Will of God
To be able to help change the course of another person's life
Through the power of Christ is Truly something to behold
It really is not about You people
For if it is limited to you you're missing out on so much MORE
___________________________________________________________


All of your shortcomings all of your Past failures
The liabilities in your life are nothing more than opportunity for God
Put God in all of that and it is called a Testimony
Take God out of that and all your are left with is
A life of shame guilt and condemnation & deservedly so
This is why The Savior came to Save us from ourselves
To do His will Not our own will

___________________________________________________________

Realize that When you Give your life to Christ , that it is going to forever change your life . You will have an enemy who wants to destroy you and sift you as wheat . You will be Adopted into the Royal Family of God and you will be refined you will be sculpted by Any means necessary to Conform you into the image of Christ. I wish I could tell you when you give your life to Christ that it was going to be all peaches and cream and a bed full of roses and you will have "your best life now" but it could not be any further from the truth. You will suffer and it will ALL be for Meaning and purpose but with a Goal and if you allow this goal to transform your life you will Go on to do great and mighty things for the LORD .

When you realize that it is Not about you at all and it is about God's good and Perfect will it will enable you to realize that you are being prepared to be at OTHERS crossroads in their life to help them in ways God will reveal to you.

Not to mention you are indeed washed clean and forgiven you are a new creation the Old has passed and the new has come. You are no longer to use abuse or Any other situation or circumstance that have came from your past as an out for any reason. The problem is that most do not Except this and try to cling to the past . The past is gone the new will come and as long as you are willing to go ALL IN and i mean ready to go where HE takes you no matter where or what that looks like. You must be able to go with HIS current and not against it . We are here to do the will of Him who created us not live our own life the way we think it should be lived . But submit and obey Christ and that means picking up your cross DAILY and following Christ at ALL cost no matter what . It is like a marriage for better or worst thick and thin when things are good and bad you must be able to praise him. He calls us HIS Bride an we enter into a covenant with him that is Binding . A marriage not like the contract marriages we see today but a real marriage, one that man can not undo.

Just know that if you submit and obey that God will Transform your life in more ways than you can ever imagine

___________________________________________________________

Father in the name of Jesus I come to you a humble servant first of all thanking you
for your mercies that were renewed today
thank you for today Lord
I ask that we would receive the everlasting word of God
That our ears would be attentive to your message
bind the enemy at the door
May your Perfect word penetrate our dull ears and stoney hearts May your will be done
Have your way with us
May we be blessed to Receive a Greater a understanding of your Son in Jesus Christ name AMEN !!!

___________________________________________________________

If people would come to understand that Christ IS real & He loves you so deeply
Now come into the knowledge of this Truth
Christ it Real & the enemy wants to Conceal this but Only for a time
The day will come When Christ Will Come & Reign
He wants to Reign In your Heart
LET HIM

___________________________________________________________

Do Not let others Insanity
Invade your own Sanity
For it does not take long to indulge in their Insanity
Keep your distance

___________________________________________________________

IF you find yourself Always having to be "right"
For All of the times you are "wrong"
You will miss out on the chance to do one thing
And that is
TO GROW

___________________________________________________________

There are bad days and flashbacks but We are FREE it was NEVER our fault
we were sentenced to life by this curse
but we have the Gift of healing for others
if we Use it to help set others free of the shame guilt and secrecy of this tragedy
Find your Freedom IN CHRIST
and even when man fails you , you will always have the support you need and deserve

___________________________________________________________

God has taken what man meant for bad and used it For His GLORY
I just happen to be along for the ride

___________________________________________________________

We all have a deep inner sense of the divine in all of us
Placed there as a spark.
This spark is waiting to be ignited into a burning light
An ALL consuming fire to shine before ALL
As proof of the Most High God

___________________________________________________________

The alcoholic is only searching for God in a bottle
The drug addict is merely searching for God in his or hers next fix
The whorelet is only searching for God in the bedroom
or in the alley or wherever it may be
The man knocking on the whorelets door goes there looking and searching for God
Plainly put the sinner is only searching for relief from his or her sins
and all the destructive things that come from their sin
in all the wrong places
The VOID we all have can ONLY be filled by GOD !!

___________________________________________________________

DO NOT try to fake it until you make it
Because the REALITY of your TRUE state
WILL be SKEWED
___________________________________________________________

Do not make life about yourself
Instead make your life unto the Glory of GOD
Do not like your job? Do it unto the Glory of GOD
Do not like school ? Do it unto the Glory of GOD
Take your life and make it about GOD & his GLORY
Life will not only become more peaceful and enjoyable
Life will make sense
Unto self life is just miserable

___________________________________________________________

Everything done in dark will be exposed to the light
anyway If you are a child of God
You might as well deal with it now
because it will have to be dealt with sooner or later
It is the weak things that give God the most Glory anyway
In our weakness lies our Greatest Strength for God to put on Display through us for Him

___________________________________________________________

Why are you jealous of what I have
If you knew what it took & takes to have what God has given me
You probably would not want it

___________________________________________________________

Only after you Acknowledge your Own weaknesses & failures
You can overcome them
AFTER you OVERCOME them
You OWE it to others to reach out & help them out of their own
DENIAL

___________________________________________________________

Do Not live your life as an
Atheist Christian
Believing in God yet Living your Life In a manner
As if He did Not Exist
Christians are known by their fruit
If you bear no fruit you Will be cut down & thrown into the fire
Be Authentic

___________________________________________________________

The Brokenness Inside is something to Enable you to Draw Nearer to God
Problem is Most use it as an Excuse
to drive a wedge between themselves & The One that can
Mend The Brokenness
___________________________________________________________

God I Love Being A Husband & a Father
It is absolutely mind boggling how Anyone
could walk away from such a Gloriously Privileged Opportunity to partake in such Love
___________________________________________________________

Through All of life's ups downs
trials
situations & circumstances
through the hurt pain anger and frustrations of this life's demands
At the end of the day it is LOVE
that will bind it All together and produce Fruit

___________________________________________________________

The Hidden Man is who God wants to bring
Front and Center
The Hidden man That operates In the Dark
This is Who God wants to make Righteous
Everything Done in the Dark Shall Come to The Light
This is where Growth Takes place

___________________________________________________________

When Truth is Revealed
Embrace It
Do Not run from Truth but Except it
For Truth is to set one Free
By Denying its Freedom you Welcome
Chains and Bondage

___________________________________________________________

Ask Yourself
What is the Motivating Spirit behind your Actions
Where you go & why you go
What is the Motivating Force behind it
Take Inventory
Take Appropriate Measures to Ensure Growth
If Nothing is Changing ask your self WHY
Than Go to WORK

___________________________________________________________

Praise Begins with Your Walk
Not your lips
Your Walk will Give God more Praise
Than your words will Ever be able to do

___________________________________________________________

Hurting people hurt other people
Its just a Fact
when hurting people become healed
than and only than
Will the hurting Stop
This is when the cycle stops

___________________________________________________________

Integrity Is or it is Not
There is no in between
Integrity is a Lifestyle
You can talk about having Integrity all you want
But your Actions Will Decide the Matter

___________________________________________________________

Where there is hatred and bitterness
shall not Love come to infiltrate
To impart its healing inside and out
When we allow Love to come in
To dwell among us to live inside our hearts
It shall begin to root out hatred rage and bitterness
For one of the greatest gifts afforded to us is Love
Shall we deny Love only to decay in our pride
To blatantly obstruct and disregard the one true gift that mends all
The reward of allowing Love to overcome is revitalization of soul
Denial of such fortitude is destruction not only from within but also an outward manifestation that shall spread to one another's heart
So it shall be if Love is allowed to bring life from within and bring fourth an outward manifestation that spreads to one another's hearts
into the minds of our future
To hand down Love instead of the curse of hatred bitterness and rage to break the cycle
I tell you Love is the only thing that has the Power to do such a thing

___________________________________________________________

One will find Peace in being Obedient to Christ
Where Obedience is lacking there will be no peace
True peace comes from Being Obedient to the Father
Not Ignoring what The Spirit whispers to your heart
Not Ignoring what The Spirit whispers in your ear
Being Obedient is so Freeing otherwise there is Only Bondage

___________________________________________________________

When focus is on your problems instead of Christ
Your problems will be your God
When one comes into agreement with Christ to Lead you through
Your problems than they become mere Exercise to Strengthen you
For the walk to come
Walk With Christ Not away from Him when trials arise

___________________________________________________________

People treat you like an outcast when you live for Christ
Walking the walk is hard and even harder when people you love treat you like an outcast
All because you choose to break terrible family cycles Family members
do not understand that breaking these unhealthy cycles
is more important than being around them
if necessary
At the end of the day I can live with it
because my children will not look back at me
and have to wonder why I chose chaos instead of them
They will know and understand
I chose them and that Braking the cycle was more important

___________________________________________________________

Living a life for self IS Destructive
Living a life For Christ is Selfless

___________________________________________________________

Living in this world apart from knowing Christ
Is like walking around this planet blind
One can Not See the things of God
For the eyes have Not been opened
The carnal mind can Not even begin to fathom
God & His Infinitely Divine Nature
For even the Spirituality Awakened have a hard enough time
Trying to fathom His Majesty

___________________________________________________________

What if God tried to find time for us?
If God is not Priority
Than How can He be God in your life?
The answer is He is Not God in your life
He is an accessory
Make No mistake He will NOT entertain this role
In ones life
He wants to Be Lord of Your life NOT an accessory

___________________________________________________________

Keeping it Real means taking a long hard Look at your life
Taking self Inventory of the things that are Not working
Than Working Tirelessly to Remove these Obstacles
If Not you are left with Denial & self Deception
This is a Realm you can Stay trapped in when you
Are Not keeping it Real at All cost
You are worth it DO the WORK

___________________________________________________________

Live in Reality not one Conjured up by a Phony Facade
A Fake wall built to Hide behind
Instead be Courageous & Shatter the wall of Deceit
Than you can Be who
God created YOU to be
and that is UNIQUE one of a Kind

___________________________________________________________

By Continuing on the Wide road
Which Many travel the path Known as self
You will Struggle with & in self
Taking the narrow road the path Few travel
The Road that Leads the opposite direction of self
There will be a struggle but it will be one Worthy of the struggle
The other one Not so much there is Nothing worthy to be had

The way a person talks
Says A lot about the Character of a person
There is no need to stand in judgement
For their words condemn themselves

___________________________________________________________

When people can not handle the Truth
They blame every one and everything around them
Never having to do Self Inventory
Generally people that can not handle the Truth
Are WEAK because they Refuse to look At themselves as the Problem
Always shifting the blame

___________________________________________________________

My God is Bigger than Any Situation or Circumstance
No Weapon Formed against me shall prosper
IF God is For me Who or What could Ever Be Against me
He that is IN ME is bigger than he that is in and of The World

___________________________________________________________

Its sad some people have to learn the hard way
Whats even sadder is there is no need to
all one needs to do is look at the people that have gone before them & use common sense

___________________________________________________________

To the Real Fathers out there
You know who you are
Because no one has to tell you that you are a Good Father
Cause your Actions Prove it day in & day out
To the others Unfortunately your Actions Prove it to
STEP YOUR GAME UP

___________________________________________________________
Being a Father is a Privilege & an Honor
To many do not hold this position in high enough regard
For those who do Not your children will hold you in Contempt
You are still held Accountable for Your Lack of Responsibility

___________________________________________________________

As a Christian
Make no mistake
It is The Spirit Within You
That will draw others to Christ
Apart from Christ You can do
NOTHING
So that it may be Christ who Receives His Rightful Do

___________________________________________________________

From the flesh you will reap bondage enslavement to your lustful cravings with an insatiable thirst for more
From The Spirit you shall reap
The key to the shackles that will Release you from your flesh
And you shall drink from the cup of The Everlasting where your thirst
Will indeed be quenched

___________________________________________________________

Wisdom is Enabled by
God
For what do any of
us have that has not been Given
We are to use this Wisdom
To Glorify God Not self

___________________________________________________________

The world has run a muck
The Godly Family Unit
The Adversary is winning
Children spend more time with others
Than they do with their own parents
or should i say parent for the most part now a days


___________________________________________________________

People will Never be able to get to where they need to be
with Unforgiveness in their heart
There are those who will rant and rave about they have the "right" to hold on to their bitterness and hatred
Well that is all fine and dandy
But one needs to realize the FACT
that they will Not Heal or Live the life they could have
If they would Forgive
The other person has gone on with their lives and could care less about whether they are forgiven or not
The only one SUFFERING is the one with Unforgiveness

___________________________________________________________

Instead of Retreating from your Own Denial
Stand and Face the Source of Your problem
Take Responsibility
Become Accountable
Then OVERCOME

___________________________________________________________

The path of Righteousness is Only found through Obedience
For no such path shall be found through disobedience
For the Righteous path is narrow yet Leads to Life
The wide path of selfishness leads Only to death

obedience is the path of righteousness

___________________________________________________________

The problem is with self
One Must Submit to God ,allow the Holy Spirit to work in their life
Be Submitted to The Will of God and then things will fall into place
Seek ye first The Kingdom of God and His Righteousness and all of these other things will be Added unto you
Not seek YOU first and your own Little Kingdom and your own Worldliness & Stupidity will be added unto you

___________________________________________________________

Ask yourself why is it You are the Only one
That can have a bad day & you Expect Grace?
When someone else is having a bad day
They are a bleepity bleep bleep
And can pretty much count on
NOT receiving ANY Grace what so ever from You

___________________________________________________________

If you have tried Everything to satisfy yourself
And still keep coming up Empty
The void your trying to fill can only be FILLED by
JESUS CHRIST who died so you can Live
and Live life Abundant
Stop pursuing all the worldly things that have Empty promises
Pursue Jesus and He Promises Never to leave you empty

___________________________________________________________

You know when you are Hiding something
It is Not of God
Otherwise why are you hiding it?
Because in the end your only prolonging
Judgment anyway
The longer the charades go on
The Deeper the Consequences

___________________________________________________________

You know when God puts the Relationship together
You do not have to hide it
Because God will be the center of it
And who would want to Hide that ?
Only the Guilty
Expect Heartbreak Disaster & Chaos

___________________________________________________________

To walk In The Spirit
Is to Walk Divinely before men & woman
To walk in self is to lead them
Astray

___________________________________________________________

We are to Train ourselves to be Godly
Without Discipline we Will in Fact Fail
There Must be an eager Desire within to not only want better
But the action to Follow through with Change
How bad do You want it? Time will Indeed tell
___________________________________________________________

The difference between people who make it & the people that do Not
Can be chalked up to Discipline
Training setting their mind as to Not be defeated by Any one or Anything
The one who fails has Plenty of Excuses & reasons Why they did Not Succeed
It All boils down to The Work
Put In the Work & reap the benefits of Successfully Overcoming
Don't do the Work & you reap Only Disappointment & failure and Deservedly so
Either way it falls on YOU

___________________________________________________________

Those who are Not Willing to Except
Truth
You will Never be able to Grow into the person God intended you to be
Truth Must be Utilized in Your life in order to Grow
If Not Only Denial & Stagnation is Prevalent


___________________________________________________________

Come to the conclusion
That You must Continue to Grow
In your life or consider the Alturnitive
Staying the Same
This should Not be Optional

___________________________________________________________

Look at the order of things in your life
Decide what needs to Go & what Needs to Stay
Than Work tirelessly to Change
If not Expect More of the same

___________________________________________________________\

Those who put relationships together themselves
Will Always be out of Divine order
The relationship God brings together
although there will be troubles
He will Sustain It
When people put themselves together Expect Disaster & Chaos

___________________________________________________________

Why settle for ordinary
Walking in self
When you can be Extraordinary
Walking with Christ

___________________________________________________________

Do Not Allow chaos to Infiltrate
You peace
This is a Choice
You can Allow chaos to reign
Or you can take Dominion over
Chaos & give it No rule in your life

___________________________________________________________

Those who are LAzy it is Quite Evident
They have Nothing to show but their Lack of Effort
There is Nothing to gain but Contempt from others
For having to pick up the slack

___________________________________________________________

The path of self leads to pain & sorrow
Eventually you must Realize
Leading yourself to your own self indulgences
Will end in chains
To be lead by The Spirit leads Only to Freedoms from CERTAIN Bondage

___________________________________________________________

Keep your priorities In
Divine order & you shall enjoy Peace
You know when your out of Divine order when there is Chaos
Be quick to Adjust or be Consumed

___________________________________________________________

Do NOT let fear take over
Instead YOU
Take Over the fear
Consume it
Over take it & Overthrow fear
Fear has NO place in your life
Unless YOU Allow it

___________________________________________________________

If God is Not your First Love than whatever
IS
That is your Idol
People Things or What ever it is you Think you need
in order to Be happy
Examine this Carefully

___________________________________________________________

We all have choices
You can wallow in your own guilt and shame of the past
You can wallow in your self pity
or you can
CHANGE

___________________________________________________________

God will take you Through something
In order to Make you & Mold you Into Something
Stop Complaining & be Willing to Go through
What God wants to Take you Through

___________________________________________________________

Stop living In fear and take your life back
You will Never get to where YOU Need to be by not living the Uncomfortable Truth

___________________________________________________________
When you are
Persistent
Consistent
& Committed to the things of God
He will Do what He Says He will Do
He will keep His Promises He has to
The Results are In Fact
UNDENIABLY Displayed in Your Life

___________________________________________________________

If You are Not Willing to put in the WORK
Than Stop Expecting
The Benefits of those that DO

___________________________________________________________

What is your God ? Who is your God ?
is it the God of the bible ?
is it the God of Facebook?
the God of work , cars,games,gambling,
sex,pornography,?
Is It the God you have MADE up in your Mind to Justify
What is your God
WHO IS YOUR GOD ???

let me apologize right now because that is not and will never be my intent. My post are meant for reflection & self examination. If you do not agree with my post or my faith that is fine everyone is at a different place in their life & also has the right to believe in what they want . I will not argue or debate i just want to share what i feel the holy spirit directs me to write. If you feel it is not for you than that is just fine but if it touches you and causes you to reflect and take inventory of your life that is also great . I also believe god gives us all we need to overcome our situations & circumstances .He gives us all we need to accomplish this . It is up to us to do the work. i always try to be honest & come with the truth and yes it hurts sometimes so brace yourself . if you can not handle it than stop now
and turn back. if you disagree with it that is fine feel free to make your own thread please do not read if
you do not take into consideration what this disclaimer explains . now it is on you . peace & blessings and may you be blessed and inspired to go to work

___________________________________________________________

Religious people do so Much Damage to The Church
Christ did Not Teach Religion He taught
Character,Integrity,Respect & MOST of all
LOVE ONE ANOTHER
Not Judge ,Hate,Instigate,Separate one another
That is what Religion Does
Be what CHRIST Called you to Be CHRIST LIKE
"CHRISTIAN" Not Religious


___________________________________________________________

Build yourself up with Integrity,Character,Honor & Respect
These things are Majorly Lacking these days
Do not simply do what Everybody Else is Doing
Be Purposeful
Not purposeless there are Plenty of these people

___________________________________________________________

Always remember you're weaknesses
can rise up and Overpower & Consume you
At any given moment
Always be Honest with where YOU are at
Do Not walk in Denial or self Deception

___________________________________________________________

Do Not make the Mistake of Looking for "the right person" Far to many look for
"the right person " instead
Work on " Being " The Right Person
so You will be Ready for the right person when they come along

___________________________________________________________

A Good parents Goal is to
Protect Not Restrict
Parents rules as well as God's are for Protection mainly from Ourselves
Information is Given in order
To protect ultimately the Choice is ours to make

___________________________________________________________

We can love our children all we want but if we are
Not showing them with our Actions Integrity, Character, Honesty &
How to live a Respectable life
Than we have failed them
If we have & they choose the wrong path
That's on Them not us

___________________________________________________________

I remember having to party & having to "kick it" In order to feel apart of something
People spend so much time trying to fill a void
that can Only be Filled by The Comforter The Holy Spirit
The quicker you Realize this
The better your Condition will be

___________________________________________________________

Parents that give into their children's demands
are in Fact
Reversing the role & Dynamic Of parenthood
& it's Painfully
Obvious it's sad
___________________________________________________________

The Only reason YOU always Settle for less
Is because YOU do not Realize
how Much More
YOU are worth
When you Figure out how Valuable YOU are
You will Stop settling for less

___________________________________________________________

If you can Not be Honest with Self
You live in the realm of Denial
This is Dangerous
Evaluate the Situation & Be Honest
Get out of Denial
The longer you stay in this realm
The Further Away from Truth you find yourself

___________________________________________________________

Those who Listen to Instruction go further
than those who do Not
The wise want to become Wiser
The only way this happens is if they are Willing to Listen
For those who think they know everything
There is Nothing to teach because they are Not Teachable
And are Doomed to Repeat others Failures

___________________________________________________________

To be angry is never the problem
It is how we handle the anger that determines if it becomes a problem
Handle your anger with dignity & integrity Not with
Stupidity

___________________________________________________________

I guy that hits a Woman can never call himself a MAN


___________________________________________________________

When You allow someone to Exploit Your anger
YOU are the one that is weak Not the other way around
Ask Yourself what INSIDE YOU allows YOU to get so upset ?
Once Revealed
YOU no what Area in YOUR life that You
NEED to Work on

___________________________________________________________

Someone that is Not willing to learn & wants to stay the same
has no standards and will blow with the wind
any which way it blows
Stay away from this kind of a person
for they Lack Integrity & have no Character
This person will Always follow and Never Lead

___________________________________________________________

Being honest with yourself
& Not Living In the realm of Denial
is the Best way to break the bad habits
You have
Denying you have a problem means that
the problem does not exist but Only In your mind
When you Allow your mind to Link with The Truth
Than the problem Becomes a Reality & Change can occur

___________________________________________________________

Why do YOU Allow negative thoughts to trespass into your mind?
Do Not allow negative energy into your space
Rebuke it and take control of your mind body & space
Tell it to flee that your Not going there today

___________________________________________________________

Stop Praying for God to USE you and start praying
For God to make you USEABLE
Than be prepared to Do the Work
God will USE you but HE will Not use you if your are Not
USEABLE because you can end up Doing more damage than good
Do the God thing not the good thing

___________________________________________________________

When you harbor the seed of Unforgiveness
IN your Heart & Allow it to REST there
and you do nothing about it but feed it water it and nurture it
Why do you Expect to be free?
Instead do the Work necessary to uproot the seed of Unforgiveness
Than plant new seeds of LOVE FORGIVENESS and GRACE
Than and Only than will you be FREE

___________________________________________________________

Do Not dwell on your past
It is called the past for a reason
When you figure this out
Leave it there

___________________________________________________________

Parents should always strive to set the bar High
For their children
But also Realize the bar they set for Themselves
Sometimes is A Lot Lower

___________________________________________________________

When someone does Not respond to your help
Move on someone else will respond
Do Not spend your time and energy for Nothing

___________________________________________________________

Some do Not have
Simply because
YOU will Not
Give
You have been blessed with more NOT so you can Hoard
But to bless others

___________________________________________________________

If you Continue to Ignore your hearts
True condition
It will continue to Lead you Astray
Ignoring the True condition of your heart
Is very dangerous
Do Not ignore it any loner
The longer you ignore it
The further away from Truth you will find yourself

___________________________________________________________

Never be satisfied with with where you are
There is Always room for GROWTH
Continue to Seek Improvement & Refinement
Those who are satisfied with average
Will continue to Stay average

___________________________________________________________

It is Delusional to think you are in control of or to think you can Direct your Destiny
For your course has already been charted

___________________________________________________________

It's time time to Grow Through your
Situations & Circumstances
Instead of Dying to them

___________________________________________________________

When you find yourself scheming or plotting
To inflict hurt on someone whether it be
Mental emotional or physical
Your Not in The Spirit
You are Working out of your feelings & emotions
Your Working out of the flesh
Be aware of your Spiritual state
Be aware of what Spirit or what Force is
Motivating you

___________________________________________________________

Why is it when someone hurts our heart
Our first instinct is to hurt or provoke them
We should in fact show Love in return
This is something to be aware of
This is how you break the cycle
Sometimes showing love is to do & say nothing at all
Not to stir the proverbial pot

___________________________________________________________


When your a Christian
You must stay in Divine order
You have an obligation to Serve others
If your not a Christian
Your only obligation is to self
The Evidence is Obvious


___________________________________________________________

Your Actions Not your words
Show your Dedication
In order to Change
YOU Must do The Work
If not keep your mouth shut
Because the time your spending talking a good game
Could be spent actually
Working

___________________________________________________________

To know right is not mere enough
One must Do right in order to
Fulfill the duty
Thinking & Doing are
Separate matters
KNOW the Difference

___________________________________________________________

It is Hard to Forgive
When you have been there for someone
& have done Everything for them
Only to have them pull your heart out
sometimes love Hurts but it Shouldn’t
___________________________________________________________





At any given time we can Choose
To right our wrongs
At any given time we can Choose
To Forgive
At any given time we can Choose
To ask for Forgiveness
At any given time we can Choose
To change the course of our lives
The problem is You do Not know
How much Time you have
Get it right Today while there's still Time

___________________________________________________________

Stay off of other peoples Journeys
Your own journey is Hard enough
People are going to make bad decisions & they are theirs to make
Do Not get caught up on their journey
Instead focus on the journey placed before you

___________________________________________________________

The same rule still applies to others
as well as ourselves in Recovery
You can NOT help someone that does Not want help
All you can do is watch the Train wreck & hope for Survival

___________________________________________________________

While doing the work pulling up the Weeds in your personal garden
Do Not sow weeds in your garden
Be mindful of what you are sowing
Are you sowing love,peace & joy or are you sowing weeds
Of hatred, bitterness, & unforgiveness

___________________________________________________________

Those who choose to work tirelessly to Overcome
Will Overcome indeed with The Holy Spirit Leading the way
Those who try this feet walking in self will Struggle
Longer

___________________________________________________________

Always be Willing to Learn
& Grow to insure that complacency does Not occur
Do Not get Comfortable
Because than you will become satisfied with where you are at &
This should Never be optional

___________________________________________________________

If you are Working Harder on someone Else's life than they are
STOP IT !! You are doing more Harm than you think
If a person is Not Willing to put fourth the Effort Necessary to Grow
Than you have No business trying to do the Work for them


___________________________________________________________

Most people have a hard enough time Managing their own lives
And yet try to be so involved in Everyone Else's life
If they would spend half as much time working on their own life
as they do others lives
Than their own life would Improve Dramatically

___________________________________________________________
For those who make Excuses All the time
It's not a big deal
Until it is time to pay for ALL of the Excuses
When the Consequences finally catch up to you
Make No mistake about it
They will catch up & there will be Consequences

___________________________________________________________

The harder you work on your life the Greater the reward
The longer you run from your problems
the further away you are
from from Achieving Anything Meaningful
Your reward is failure & justly so

___________________________________________________________
Those who can Not handle
Freedom Must learn
Maturity
If you can Not handle Freedom
Realize you are indeed Immature in this area of your life & You need to Grow

___________________________________________________________

Empower someone to Grow and get off the mary go
round of more of the same
Encourage Change
Hold someone Accountable
Make a difference today

___________________________________________________________

Growth is intentional
Growth takes Action
The alternative is
Stagnation & death
If you are not Growing you are dying
Go to Work

___________________________________________________________

Running from your Problems only puts you
Further & Further away from your goal
Of OVERCOMING them

___________________________________________________________

Why do Christians seek out wicked counsel from unsaved ungodly men and woman
The word of God says to seek out WISE counsel not wicked counsel
Not counsel that will tell you what YOUR itching ears want to hear
But Wise Counsel that can save your soul and set you on the strait path
Wise counsel from Godly men and woman
Counsel that will tell you want you NEED to hear not what you WANT to hear

___________________________________________________________

If you are a Christian & are not Blessings those who curse & come against you
Than you are Not doing as The Word Teaches
For we are to Bless those who curse us
You will keep going around this mountain
until You bring your flesh into accordance to this rule

___________________________________________________________
Training yourself in Discipline Of Gods word through the Power of The Holy Spirit
will Lead you to Overcome & be Victorious in your life
Without discipline by training yourself
You will Experience many failures
For without practice how will you Achieve Excellence

___________________________________________________________

How do you plan on serving God
if you are not even Willing to Submit to his Authority?
First Submit to God and His Authority
and He will do what He wants to accomplish
Through & with you

___________________________________________________________

If you make Excuses
In other words You are
Essentially lying to Yourself
Take Ownership & Responsibility for Your Actions or lack of Action
Have integrity

___________________________________________________________

One day your talking to someone and the next day
they could be gone and all you will have are memories
This should not be taken for granted
Life is A Gift and should be treated as such
As long is there is Today
Be Grateful

___________________________________________________________


It is time to Stop Talking about Change
And Actually do the Work that it takes to Change
Get out of the Revolving door
Make it Happen
It's Time

___________________________________________________________

It Amazes me how people can Consciously settle for Less
When they could have so much more
And still think they are doing so good
In reality they are making Ridicules Decisions
Chasing a Dream NOT Reality

___________________________________________________________

When you harbor the seed of Unforgiveness
IN your Heart & Allow it to REST there
and you do nothing about it but feed it water it and nurture it
Why do you Expect to be free?
Instead do the Work necessary to uproot the seed of Unforgiveness

Parents should always strive to set the bar High

___________________________________________________________
I believe it is not what we see in which we rage war against but it is the unseen in people it is the inner man or woman the demonic forces that have nestled deep deep inside a person so do not look on the outside but discern the unseen
the spiritual nature of a person
For we truly are spiritual beings
not just what you see on the outside
Do Not judge a person for you no not of the inside

___________________________________________________________

So many times we continue to make the same mistakes because we never fully implement the lesson from the first time around
We will continue to make the same mistakes if we do not get the lesson And than Complete the lesson

___________________________________________________________

Ask yourself are you a teachable person? If you are Not than Expect to Continue to make the same Mistakes
A teachable person will continue to Seek until the answers they need are found & Change



___________________________________________________________


Why is it when the evidence is standing right In front of someone's eyes & they still refuse to Admit to The Truth even then ?
PRIDE
The Only thing left for a person like this is
THE FALL

___________________________________________________________

Life is going to happen & it is going to make or break you
The people that fight for their life will make it
The people that do not fight for their life will allow it to break them

___________________________________________________________

You can Not live this life in Denial because we are in a war everyday within self The biggest battle we face is with self The Only weapon you can use against Denial is TRUTH & HONESTY
With Self

___________________________________________________________

It is Not about who is wrong and who is right because at the end of the day The relationship is worth far more than any bitterness & chaos or drama In ones heart
Love feels so much better
Make amends get it right

___________________________________________________________
One must learn to apologize in order to make amends
It is never worth loosing a friendship or a family member over anything
As much as we have been forgiven Everyone deserves Grace

___________________________________________________________

Just as we want our children to be teachable
As parents we must be teachable also because despite thinking we know what's best for them
We do get it wrong
Therefore we must be willing to further our Growth as parents as well

___________________________________________________________

As a husband or wife both parties must be willing to be Teachable
Because during the marriage husband & wife must be able to learn from each others mistakes & Not hold it against one another but
Grow instead

___________________________________________________________

The person that Learns from their mistakes has a Responsibility to Lead others away from making the same mistakes

___________________________________________________________

If you truly love you yourself
Than you will know how to love others
If you do not love yourself how can you begin to love others?
The answer is you can not
It will be an invalid love

___________________________________________________________

Always be Willing to be Taught
Because there is Always
Something you can Learn

___________________________________________________________

When you do Not Do what you know you ought to Do
This is called Denial
The longer you stay in this realm the Harder it will be to Ever Face the Reality of
TRUTH in Fact the longer you stay In Denial the likelihood
of you just Staying there becomes your reality
___________________________________________________________

The day you think
"I got this" is the day you open the doors of failure
Because we should never get so comfortable that we stop Working on our life

___________________________________________________________

Without a Truthful Assessment of your life how will you ever expect to Grow in the areas that need pruning?

___________________________________________________________

Staying sober is hard but life not being sober is a lot harder

___________________________________________________________

If you're Not doing the Work it takes to Overcome & find yourself in the same place
Than get of your Lazy non working a$$ and Do The Work otherwise Stop Complaining


___________________________________________________________

If you're Not Serious about Change do Everyone a favor & just Admit your Not Ready to Do The Work if you're not being Honest with where you are in your life than Change is Not Possible so you're just Living in Denial make no mistake about this
That's on YOU

___________________________________________________________
Watch carefully where you are allowing your precious
Pearls to be placed
Do not allow others to have what is most sacred
If you do not think you are sacred and are in fact a precious jewel
Then you need to Recognize that YOU are
and act & proceed accordingly

___________________________________________________________

When others around you are acting a fool
Continue on the strait and narrow
They just might learn something
If not at least you know you kept your composure

___________________________________________________________

Listening to information that you want to hear from people you want to hear it from
Will more than likely lead you down the path YOU choose
Get advice from someone who will not Sugar coat Anything
& tell it like it is Than you will more than likely make the choice that Needs to be made
___________________________________________________________

There is No time for Codling & Holding your hand
It is time to Grow up It is time to Go to Work
Stop dwelling on your past Stop dwelling on your Yesterday
If you need to Change things in your life & live for your Future
You need someone that will get in your face and tell it like it
Really is Not what you Really want to hear
It could save your life

___________________________________________________________

A relationship God puts together each one of you will respect the sacred boundaries of one another
If you do not you can be sure it is relationship built on infatuation & lust Not Love
Because Love waits because it has to
___________________________________________________________

When negativity invades your space remove yourself from it if you do not than that's on you

___________________________________________________________

Watch God move on your behalf as those around you plot evil but only if you Allow God to exact His Righteous Judgment because if you take Revenge into your own hands Realize you are Stealing from Almighty God

___________________________________________________________

The good thing about making bad decisions
Is that at any given time
You can Decide to Stop making them and not only that
Get the Lessons you are intend to get in order for you not to repeat your mistakes

___________________________________________________________
Just because you deny something that is true
Does not make you justified in your thinking
It makes you a Liar and a deceiver of others
But more importantly a deceiver of Self

___________________________________________________________

If you never get the lesson you will never get the blessing of not repeating your mistakes

___________________________________________________________

When angry Recognize that taking it further into the realm of revenge is Stealing from God
For Vengeance is mine says The Lord
Do not interfere with Gods Business

___________________________________________________________

Having bitterness in your heart and having anger in your heart is not the problem
The problem comes from letting these things Rest there

___________________________________________________________
Do not conform to the stupidity of this world
Do not conform to the stupidity of this world by basking & joining in the stupidity
Instead Overcome it by distancing yourself from the crowd

___________________________________________________________
Keep fighting the fight and keep it moving . There is no time for rest the alternative is staying in this place of misery in our lives . We can choose to continue to fight the battles that come our way or ignore them and stay the same . This is not optional if you want to get to where you are going . Be strong be courageous Never give up and you will eventually be rewarded with the peace you desire.

___________________________________________________________

Most of the time Controversy only comes because someone
Refuses to Except
The Truth

___________________________________________________________

The battle is Not on the outside for you have that
Battle won Game Tight
The battle dwells Within
This battle know one See's
But you not only see it you
Feel it

___________________________________________________________
You can speak a thousand words to someone
But if they are not Willing to Listen
Your just Wasting
Your
Time
Energy & Breath

___________________________________________________________
Those who Continue to
Live In their past
Are Never quite able
To Live for their Future

___________________________________________________________
When stress comes upon you & it feels like the walls are closing in
This is the time to Build yourself Up
Do Not retreat into
Despair

___________________________________________________________

If what you have been doing for so long has Not been working for you
Exactly at what point will you acknowledge this Truth
And be WILLING to do things Differently
CHANGE

___________________________________________________________

When you are spending a lot of time and energy trying to help those in need
And then find that they do not intend on taking the reigns for themselves
Stop helping because at this point it is called Enabling


___________________________________________________________

To many times people tend to want to listen only after trouble arises
But do not want to hear or do anything you say before all hell breaks loose
Only than do you have their ear

___________________________________________________________

Always be aware of your motives
For before men and woman they are masked
Within yourself & God the motives are clear
Either way they will be tested and if it fails the test be
Prepared to watch it burn by the Fire of Truth

___________________________________________________________
Some people do not change simply because they do not know how to
But this is still no excuse
Because there are plenty of Examples

___________________________________________________________

Change may not be easy
But it is Absolutely
NECESSARY in order to GROW

___________________________________________________________

Those who's intent is to Learn & Grow will Reap a harvest of Knowledge & Wisdom
Those who's intent is only bent on Foolishness shall also Reap the harvest of a Fools Downfall

___________________________________________________________

If your True intent is to Change it will be Authenticated by your Action
Without Action there is only self Deception

___________________________________________________________


If you expect everyone to Except & Embrace the Truth you speak into their lives you would be mistaken
If Truth offends it offends for a reason
Only the sincere will investigate why and than Embrace Truth the other will only Reject Truth & continue living in Denial

___________________________________________________________

Do not seek to destroy someone's reputation
They will be exposed for the fraud they really are sooner or later

___________________________________________________________

Realize when you have done Everything in your power to help someone & they continue to reject it
It is a choice they have to live with not you

___________________________________________________________

We know what is right & yet find ourselves doing wrong
When we get around certain people because certain people bring out the worst in us
The only remedy is to cut these people out of our lives
Than replace them with people that will hold you accountable

___________________________________________________________

When you
Forgive it is a Freeing experience just knowing you do not have to forget what one has done to you thus
Enabling you to not make the Mistake of placing the person you have forgiven back into your life

___________________________________________________________
It should never be about doing "the right thing"
It should Always be about
Doing The Godly thing
The Righteous thing

___________________________________________________________
Never seek out revenge
For what could you possibly do that will measure up to or compare to the Perfect & Righteousness judgement of God?

___________________________________________________________

The True source of your inner conflict is the unseen
The spiritual aspect of war from within
The reason you are loosing the battle is because you are using carnal means in a battle that can Only be won with the Help of The Holy Spirit

___________________________________________________________


If people would find their True worth in Christ they would not have to seek to find it in so many other people,places & things

___________________________________________________________

Realize when you watch,listen & do ungodly things
You are subjecting and forcing The Holy Spirit to be Subjected to these things
Therefore Grieving The Holy Spirit

___________________________________________________________
Those who claim there is no God have to know they are they're own God

___________________________________________________________
For the Gift of prophecy Exposes the hidden things of the heart & seeks to bring all things that are in darkness into The Light in order to bring about repentance
In doing so bringing Glory to God

___________________________________________________________

The ones who stand condemned live in the flesh & from that flesh reap it's harvest of bondage
Those who walk In The Spirit of The Holy One Christ Jesus
Have no such curse and reap the harvest of Joy unspeakable

___________________________________________________________

Those who dwell In The Spirit are not only blessed by default because The Spirit of Christ's is within them
They are afforded the Promises & Protection of God
With Salvation comes with it Power and Authority

___________________________________________________________
Are you not aware that forgiveness is for the guilty?
If you are not guilty of any sin than one need not forgiveness
Can one find such a person?
Therefore let us agree we are All in Need of Forgiveness
There is only One worthy enough for such a task
Jesus Christ The Redeemer

___________________________________________________________

The power of God is for the ungodly
In order to turn their soul towards Godliness

___________________________________________________________
You can only give people so much information about Christ before they have to except him for themselves
Because of free will
It just sucks watching with horror the bad decisions they make without him in they're life

___________________________________________________________

Believing in God is Not merely enough for even the demons believe
Your actions & Obedience to the Will of God through your Faith will in fact prove whether you are sincere

___________________________________________________________

Until the Husband takes his place in the home things will continue to stay unchanged
Not just praying for but praying With your wife & children
Leading bible studies In The Home it is Not the church's Responsibility to do this
It is The Husbands Duty


___________________________________________________________
My wife is full of Grace
Slow to speak
For she does not let foul language flow from her lips
She Forgives Quickly
All lessons I can learn from her Example

___________________________________________________________

For those who seek the lord diligently they will find
Favor from the lord
Those who seek him only when trouble arises will not be afforded such favor

___________________________________________________________

How do I know God is moving on my behalf cause he said so
God is who he says he is and will do what he says he will do
That's how I know

___________________________________________________________

I would do and will do Anything for my wife and kids Including laying down my life if you are not willing to do the same do not enter into this arena

___________________________________________________________

Life is better with God
Life without God
Not so much

___________________________________________________________
Do not be afraid to tap into the creator's energy
Look around he created all of what you see
You might not understand it all or even want to know about him
Just know there is something bigger Larger than self
Tap into it

Be warned you may be inspired by what you read . you may get offended & if that is the case
let me apologize right now because that is not and will never be my intent. My post are meant for reflection & self examination. If you do not agree with my post or my faith that is fine everyone is at a different place in their life & also has the right to believe in what they want . I will not argue or debate i just want to share what i feel the holy spirit directs me to write. If you feel it is not for you than that is just fine but if it touches you and causes you to reflect and take inventory of your life that is also great . I also believe god gives us all we need to overcome our situations & circumstances .He gives us all we need to accomplish this . It is up to us to do the work. i always try to be honest & come with the truth and yes it hurts sometimes so brace yourself . if you can not handle it than stop now
and turn back. if you disagree with it that is fine feel free to make your own thread please do not read if
you do not take into consideration what this disclaimer explains . now it is on you . peace & blessings and may you be blessed and inspired to go to work


___________________________________________________________

When you feel like taking revenge
Stop and think what will it accomplish
but further escalate the situation
Instead be humble wait on God to handle it
After all He said Revenge belongs to him

___________________________________________________________

Begin to Show Mercy to those who
Show no mercy towards you
Pray for those who come against you
Love will not only Bind it all up
But it will Enable you to do so

___________________________________________________________


Satan hates man because
We were made in Gods image
We were made Higher than the angels
For we shall judge the angels in Heaven
When you begin to wrap your head around that YOU are
We are Gods Greatest Creations
Than maybe your faith will Rise to the point of Action
& You can begin to
Use The Power and Authority God Gave us All

___________________________________________________________

You know a boy is Not a man when he continues to degrade woman
with his tongue & his actions
A man does not call a female out of her name
Therefore he is still infant in his behavior & thinking
A man puts these things behind him
___________________________________________________________

If you find yourself Always BLAMING others
For the positions YOU put YOURSELF in
Expect Nothing more than what you have been getting out of LIFE
Which is Nothing more than the Same
Taking RESPONSIBILITY for YOUR actions is the ONLY way to
Break the cycle of Insanity

___________________________________________________________

Truth Not Denial will get you past your past
You Must walk in Truth You Must have a thirst for Truth
Denial is futile it only enables you to stay where you are
Never affording You the opportunity to Grow

___________________________________________________________

If your True intent is to Change
Than it will be Authenticated by Action
Without Action there is only self Deception

___________________________________________________________


Living a Lie only last for so long
All the While it is Exposed in your Heart
You can tell the lie as many times as you want
It still does not make it Truth
Bring it fourth from your heart out through your lips
Confess And Allow it to be EXPOSED
ONLY than will you be set FREE
___________________________________________________________

Never Owning YOUR mistakes
Allows YOU to never have to Correct them
Blaming others for YOUR mistakes
Allows YOU to Never take Responsibility
Never Taking Responsibility
Allows YOU to Never have to GROW
Never Growing means you never Change
You will always Stay the SAME in the realm of
INSANITY

___________________________________________________________

With so many people running around burying their pain
Instead of just Releasing it
Exposing it as if others where not doing the same thing
More would be Healed
Instead the Few that do release and EXPOSE their pain
End up being not only a Hero but also an
INSPIRATION

___________________________________________________________

Truth is so mind boggling as denial and pride try to detour your Progress
Real Truth Usually hurts but can also Heal and Produces Perseverance,Growth and Character
Truth really can set you Free but can also bound You if you let it
Embrace Truth carefully and with Purpose ,and when it Exposes You to the core of your foundation
Meet it head on with Humility and then OVERCOME

___________________________________________________________

When there is Warranted Criticism
It is Never received well at first
But as the Outward man or woman projects offense on the outside
Deep in the soul there is a Profound Moment of TRUTH
It is at that very moment
YOU can begin to Work on your
"now clear weakness" that was just Revealed to you
or you can
Continue to LIVE a LIE

___________________________________________________________

Making decisions based on self
always ends with a continual thirst for more
Because in the realm of self
You are never satisfied

___________________________________________________________

When we fail to listen to wisdom
and than the consequences are handed down
All there is left to do is take it like a man
Regroup and Learn from the Mistake

___________________________________________________________

Be careful not to set up an idol
The thing you desire the most could be the one thing that destroys you

___________________________________________________________

Hiding your weaknesses
Is in Fact denying the Reality that you have them
One Must Expose your weaknesses & bring them out into the open
Only than can you begin to Overcome them

___________________________________________________________

The longer you hide your weakness the more Power
Your weakness will have
over you
The quicker you Realize this Truth the quicker you can Expose it &
Overcome your weakness
No longer choosing to Allow your weakness to overcome you

___________________________________________________________

If you bury your gift to think
in the ground & choose not to learn & get an education
Than you are making a conscience decision to be average

___________________________________________________________

When you continue to ignore what is right and expect things to be good in your life
It shows how delusional your thinking has become
Woe to those who call evil good

___________________________________________________________

When your walk is upright your life will show it for you shall have peace & blessings
If your life is full of strife & chaos your walk is not upright your life will show this and you shall have no peace

___________________________________________________________

Stop hiding your weaknesses
For they will Never become strengthened until they are brought out into the Open
To be Worked on
While hidden they will continue to keep you weak

___________________________________________________________

Those who obey the holy spirit are blessed
Those who do not
Suffer great anguish in their spirit for they are grieving the holy spirit

___________________________________________________________


One can go to great lengths to portray happiness on the outside
while dying on the inside this is called living a lie

___________________________________________________________

People hide what is on the inside
Because they are putting forth so much effort
living a lie on the outside that it takes precedence

___________________________________________________________

When it is time to face the consequences of your bad choices
All you should focus on is accepting the consequences & learn Never to repeat the cause

___________________________________________________________

Christian's we are not to live a life for self

We are to live our life for Christ not a life dedicated to & for self
We are to Ambassadors For The Most High God
Not leading a cause for
Self

___________________________________________________________

When parents Fail to Parent
& Allow the ones they Should Be Parenting
To make All of the Decisions
We end up with the Disrespectful No Boundary Having
Careless Self Entitled Complex
That we see all over these days
Parents Step Your Game Up !!

___________________________________________________________

For those of us who choose to lead
Make no mistake about it
We to are under the same burdens & have the same weaknesses
As the very ones who choose to follow
Do not think otherwise

___________________________________________________________

Be careful what people "spirits" you
Choose to allow in your space
It does not take long for you to begin
To act & sound just like them
This is Good & Bad
Surround yourself with positivity

___________________________________________________________

Surround yourself with Chaos
& your life will become Chaotic
Surround yourself with the Wise
& you will in turn become Wise
Surround yourself with Fools
& it will not be long before you become Foolish
What do people Not understand about this? All one need to do
Is test this to Reveal the Truth in what is being said
Which one are you ? It might be time to become
Mature & take Inventory of what company you keep

___________________________________________________________


There are many who have a form of Godliness
but denying its Power
Satan devours these people
because they are pretender's
and they Refuse to Do the spiritual Work
in their lives Never Growing
but always receiving the information
but never applying what they hear
Never putting it into Action

___________________________________________________________

It is hard to watch your children make horrible life decisions
It can even feel like betrayal
because of the time love and energy
we put into our children
We do not want them getting hurt
and want to help them avoid as much hurt as possible
We can not protect our children from life
because life is going to happen. We just have to be there to support them when it does happen

___________________________________________________________

Your prayer will be fulfilled when God has put you in position to receive the fulfillment of the prayer

___________________________________________________________

The one who continues to Ignore The "conscience"
The Spirit will Continue to have no peace
The one who obeys The Spirit
will of Peace & will be Blessed
___________________________________________________________

Talking about taking action does not produce results
Taking Action Produces
The desired Results Of Progress

___________________________________________________________

Truly I say unto to you that
the "American dream" is a carrot on a stick
that Satan dangles in front of the world
But True contentment is Found Only IN Christ

___________________________________________________________

It is an Impossibility to hear or see yourself
or others Clearly
without a Sober mind
Everything you hear is with a clouded mind
Everything you see is seen with clouded eyes
Therefore be Sober minded so that you will be able to hear & see things before you Intelligently

___________________________________________________________

Trying to run from God is like trying to run away from yourself
Everywhere you go there you are
& yet there he will be also
___________________________________________________________

If you Work on Your Own Life
you will come to realize there is no time
to work on someone Else's life
In the process you will realize you could Never change their life anyways

___________________________________________________________

Those who walk In integrity
Shall be Blessed
Those who know what to do
& yet still have "their own way"
To Do instead
Shall have No peace & the life you live will
Be all the evidence anyone needs to understand this Truth
___________________________________________________________


If you live life saying
I will be happy when
Fill in the ______?
Once achieved you will only replace it
with another blank
Find contentment In Christ
& You shall have ALL you ever need

___________________________________________________________

When we walk IN Truth
we are accomplishing the will of
THE Heavenly Father
When we lie Realize
the father of lies Satan
Is using us to accomplish
his will


___________________________________________________________

Walking in Darkness
To be deceitful & to lie
is allowing the devil to use us
for his plan and purpose
Walking In The Light
Is to be Truthful & Honest
Allowing The Spirit of Christ
To use us for God's purpose & will for our lives


___________________________________________________________

If we Live what we learn
We would stop making the same mistakes
Instead we hear with our ears & do nothing with the information
This should not be


___________________________________________________________
When You Choose to live IN your lie
Your lie becomes Your Truth
Than the lie manifests itself through
Your Actions
When this occurs you are no longer
Who you are suppose to be
You are no longer
Recognizable to Yourself or Anyone else


___________________________________________________________

When people say things to intentionally
wound your heart
Just know it is because their heart
is already wounded
They just want you to feel their pain

___________________________________________________________
Those who do not want to face their own reality
they run and hide you see
for it is much more comfortable to live a lie but is it?
Trying to figure out this life and how to live it
so wrapped up in it
Always trying to spin it in a way that's pleasing to self
All the while still Living in this realm of Denial called
Personal hell
Well the only way to escape this Self inflicted Ignorance
is called Repentance to End this & gain Truths Independence
Turn from your Plight
Stop taking flight stand up and Fight for Your life
Your Worth it don't take my word for it
You where made Perfect with a Plan & with Purpose
Stay focused on Truth for it shall set you free
Once and for all Only than can you stand tall
with your head held high No longer having to live a lie

___________________________________________________________


Be who You are Always
There is only one You for a Reason
So do not commit the act of Treason
For Any Reason trying to please em
Be who You were Created to Be
This I say is your Destiny always has been
Always will be

___________________________________________________________

The only thing you can do when someone you love
stabs you in the back
is pull the knife out of your heart
forgive & move on
___________________________________________________________

Jelly leg Christians are hindered from spiritual growth because they are concerned about what people think
Jelly leg Christians miss church a lot
and are never able to grow spiritually
because Satan is hindering them
from becoming what God intended them to be
which is Strong and Nighty IN the Lord
but jelly leg Christian's are weak
and are only Weak and mighty IN self
and there is No power in self
Therefore they are Not Strong and mighty
IN The Lord

___________________________________________________________

To be Elevated Into the stratosphere
To be lifted up to where You are
The Most Holy and Lofty God is where our aim should be
In The Spirit


___________________________________________________________
To Live and Walk in Truth is a Divine quality
To live and walk in Denial & Deceit
is Profane
What does your walk look like ?
It can Change day to day minute by minute
second by second
Are you aware? If not you are now


___________________________________________________________

Many try to run from their issues
hoping they will just magically disappear
This is flawed thinking
One must Confront & Conquer
Their issues wherever you run to
your problems will be there waiting


___________________________________________________________

You can not walk In
TRUTH
While Living a
LIE


___________________________________________________________

Most People hate Truth to be spoken
Because most of the time
people want to Deny the Truth
This is where offense comes into play
The person that wants to live in their own lie
or Denial of Truth
Will be offended & stay offended
Justified in their own mind
The one who wants Truth
will be offended and than Walk in and ACCEPT
the TRUTH and CHANGE


___________________________________________________________


Do Not sugar coat life
for all of life is not sweet
Tell the truth life can be bitter
Do not feed someone sugar when you know
what they need is Truth

___________________________________________________________

Those who live their life knowingly
in disobedience
Can never seem to figure out
there are consequences until they are handed down

___________________________________________________________

Those who are stuck in their past
are never able to see
the Freedom of Overcoming it


___________________________________________________________

When you Ignore Wise
Instruction & Willfully say in your heart
I shall be disobedient & go the way of my own
Do not be surprised when calamity overtakes you & dismantles your efforts


___________________________________________________________

Willful disobedient people
Ignore the Fact there are consequences
for their wrong choices & bad decisions
That is until the Consequences of their actions
are raining down upon their head
with no relief in sight are they able to see this Truth
___________________________________________________________

Make no mistake where Your Will is
your nature will follow
Therefore align Your Will with Righteousness
& Your nature will follow
Align your will with wickedness
& your nature follow

___________________________________________________________

Grace is given in order to Restrain us
& allows us to Regain ground
Towards God's Holiness in us
Grace is not a means to run a muck
& make a mockery of our lives


___________________________________________________________

To engage in someone's obvious ignorance
is enabling & triggering your own


___________________________________________________________

Let this sink in


FACEBOOK
THE
GOSSIP
CENTER
OF
THE
UNIVERSE


___________________________________________________________

God is the very definition
of Love and Love always must be expressed
to and through you
to others

___________________________________________________________

Love does not keep track and keep score
against another
because Love Allows Forgiveness to take it's place


___________________________________________________________

The heart must be right and true
The heart must have love in it and than manifest itself through Action
Love must manifest through action
otherwise it is mere speech

___________________________________________________________
If you profess to be wise
and your walk does not back it up
than you are merely whispering sweet Nothings


___________________________________________________________

Those who Hide from Truth
Are only Exposing their own Willingness
To stay in Denial


___________________________________________________________

We need to stop talking about the power of Christ
For there is plenty of conversation
of the power of Christ
It's time to Utilize
The Power of Christ that dwells within


___________________________________________________________

Building on the foundation The Solid Rock
of Christ Jesus
Is a comfort knowing when the winds of life come my Foundation is
Unmovable & Unshakable


___________________________________________________________

Faith is so much more than just believing
Faith is believing to the point of Action
Living out what you believe


___________________________________________________________

Those who intentionally do wrong to others
and expect to get away with it
are sadly mistaken
For left to the Lord
The repayment shall be far greater
than anything you can concoct yourself


___________________________________________________________

People that have tried religion it is no wonder
why you no longer believe
Because religion will FAIL you Every single time
Those who have a relationship with Christ
by Grace through Faith will indeed understand this truth


___________________________________________________________

Wrap your head around this
GOD CAN DO WHAT HE WANTS
WHEN HE WANTS & HOW HE WANTS
& you do not have to like it or understand
it PERIOD
When you create your own universe
than you can do what you want
when you want & how you want
Until than learn to BE STILL
& KNOW THAT HE IS GOD

___________________________________________________________
In order to proclaim you are a Christian
you Must be able to Except ALL of the Gospel
Not just the parts that fits you
Because if you do Not Except it ALL
than you are damaging the body of Chris


___________________________________________________________

Man does have free will
but know & understand
God is still going to render
His Righteous Decrees
No matter what man's will is

___________________________________________________________

The reason people run even though no one is pursuing
them is because they are trying to escape
their conscious " conviction "
In order to have peace
one must confront the matter


___________________________________________________________

Do Not think that Anything you have experienced
or have gone through in this life
is not opportunity
for God to Move into Work out or Work Through

___________________________________________________________

So many people get mad at me
because I love to deal with Truth
Yea sometimes the Truth hurts but Truth Saves
Truth allows healing
Truth Exposes lies
Truth Exposes insecurities
Truth Ultimately should lead to CHANGE


___________________________________________________________
Man will continue to sin
That is why in order to stand before a holy,righteous & perfect God one must be exsolved of sin
That is why Christ died for all sin.The atonement for everyone who excepts him

___________________________________________________________
Keep your mind free of false teaching
There is no such thing as the prosperity gospel
There is Only THE GOSPEL


___________________________________________________________

In our humanness we are weak and feeble
and even fearful
In The spirit we're BOLD as a lion
Power Unlimited
therefore I say unto you Walk in
Live in
Breathe in
The Holy Spirit of God

___________________________________________________________

People try to Replace Joy a Spirit quality
with happiness
Happiness is always temporary
People feel as if they have to keep
the fleeting flame of happiness burning
Instead of The Spirit quality of Joy
when obtained is an everlasting peace
that surpasses all our understanding

___________________________________________________________

The Christ does Not Discriminate
People Do


___________________________________________________________

Religion has given Christians a bad name a bad wrap
and have done more harm than good
Those of us who follow Christ & try to live the best
way we can by spreading love not hate
Spreading his message not doctrine of man
with all its rules & regulations
True Christian's I commend you
Religious people I will continue to pray for you

___________________________________________________________

When you pray
The creator of the universe is attentive & inclined to hear
Your prayers Do make a difference
Do Not let the enemy steal this direct link to God

One need not Judge another
For this is True
Your Walk
Your Talk
Your Actions
Form the Conclusion to the matter

___________________________________________________________
Some call it karma
Some say what goes around comes around
You can Not Escape the evil you do
You may think you are getting away
At the time Of the offense
But you are only getting by
For the wrong you do Will Be Righted
___________________________________________________________

Some people have no life
of their own
These people usually try to make a mess of yours
Be mindful of this & steer clear of these people


___________________________________________________________
The Holy Spirit is always whispering little things to us
because they all add up to the bigger things of God
When we listen and are obedient
We will Experience the Bigger things God has for us

___________________________________________________________

Needy people
Are always in need of something
When they get
They are never satisfied
Are you needy? If you are
You need to Change

___________________________________________________________

You can always tell the True heart of a person
when you realize their motives behind their actions
Are they motivated by love or hate?
Are they building up or tearing down?
Their Actions are all the evidence one needs to decide the matter
___________________________________________________________

Most people cannot get past Themselves
In order to See & Be what God would have them to be

___________________________________________________________

Do not let your ungodliness shine before men & women
Do not put it on display

___________________________________________________________

Spread Love instead of hate
Look for Good instead of Exploiting the Bad
Continuing on in the example of the norm will change Nothing
Be The Difference Maker
LEAD
_________________________________________________________
Your complaining is useless
There is no Power in complaining
Self pity is a worthless use of time
There is no Power in self pity
Utilize the Power within you
And Overcome Walk in Boldness
Now Go to Work
__________________________________________________________


The people that Acknowledge their weaknesses
with the intent to Overcome
are only doing what others are to weak to do

___________________________________________________________

You say you want a better life & want to be better in life
but continue to live in a state of denial
Thinking doing nothing at all
will ultimately get you to a better place in your life
In this realm
All you can do is expect to have a better life
& yet receive more of the same
which is absolutely no change at all

___________________________________________________________

Stop wanting what others have
For if you put fourth the effort
who is to say that you would not end up having more?

___________________________________________________________

Not facing the Truth will ultimately kill you
Whether it be mentally physically or spiritually

___________________________________________________________

For it is the Authenticity of your heart
that shines with the Willingness to Grow
Never settling for less
this will Enable you to Grow and Go
Further & Further
For it is the sincerity of your heart
that will decide whether you will grow
or stay the same
___________________________________________________________

The character of a person
is Exposed in the midst of adversity
How will you handle adversity?
With intensity or excuse
With purpose or with contempt ?

___________________________________________________________

Turn your complaining
Into blessings
Turn from your grumbling
Into Praise
For You are Truly Blessed
Beyond Measure
You could be living in another place with no food water or clean clothes
All in all we live like
Kings & Queens

___________________________________________________________

Instead of looking for inspiration
Be an inspiration
to someone else today
Its not all about you
you know that right?

___________________________________________________________

Words have so much influence & power behind them
Those who wield their words with reckless abandonment
Will do irreparable damage
Those who constrain their words as to not harm or offend
Show themselves worthy of the wisdom of understanding this
Truth
___________________________________________________________

There can only be drama if Allowed
Shut it Down and Shut it Out
If you do not than it's on you

___________________________________________________________

Do you seek to help others with
the compassion you desire yourself ?
Or do you seek to disrupt peoples lives with
the uncompassionate life you carry around
allowing it infect others with the hope of them sharing in your misery ?
You are either one or the other

___________________________________________________________
Is your mouth a vehicle for harsh words to be spoken
Or are your words a vehicle for beautiful harmonies
To be spoken out into this world filled with broken people

___________________________________________________________

You can not even call yourself a man if you go around degrading/hurting woman
Because a real man would know this is unacceptable

___________________________________________________________
The only person you are fooling is
YOURSELF
When you hiding things

___________________________________________________________

Discontent people want others to share in their misery
While the joyful want others to share & be infused with joy
Which one are you?

___________________________________________________________

There is a reason the enemy uses shame against you
Because he knows if you stop believing the lie
that shame Presents in your life
You can be free & live free
to become the God man or Woman
You where meant to be all along

___________________________________________________________

You are the one that looses the most when you lie
Because you are lying to self
___________________________________________________________

Think of all of the energy you have put into harboring Unforgiveness
from the things that happen to you in your past
Now image having put forth all that time & energy
forgiving
and overcoming your past with love compassion & grace
The same forgiveness mercy & grace you desire when you make a mistake
___________________________________________________________

Everyone lives in the dark in some area in their life
Some realize this & strive to get out of the dark
into the light
Others
Do not have a clue they are living in this dark area
And yet there are those who know they are in the dark and are comfortable there
Which one are YOU ?

___________________________________________________________

When peoples idols are attacked the wall of defense goes up
Truth whispers in ones soul recognizing the Idol
but you will not let truth rest
Immediately rejection of Truth swirls about ones heart
And reconstruction begins Erecting your false Idol back up again

___________________________________________________________

Some people have know clue what humility is
Or what humility looks like
That is until it is displayed before them by you

___________________________________________________________


No mater what great lengths you go to in order to hide
from the Truth that will set you free
Whatever that Truth is , you must come to terms with it
One thing is for sure, not confronting it
will enable you to continue to be hindered in your growth
Uncontested
This will leave you spinning your wheels in one place
Only giving you the illusion you are moving

___________________________________________________________

If you are still angry at your past
Realize you will never be able to live the full potential of your future
There is a reason it is called a past
When you embrace this truth than you can focus solely on you future
Shedding the dead weight that was your past

___________________________________________________________

Those who Overcome
Choose to do so
Those who do not have the ability to exercise this option At any given moment

___________________________________________________________

Learn to love God
He will show you how to love yourself
Than you will know how to love others properly

___________________________________________________________

Out of the overflow of your heart
the mouth speaks either hurts or healing
building up or tearing down
Your hearts true condition will manifest itself
through your words & your actions
___________________________________________________________

Those who never reach their potential
are usually controlled by fear
When fear is allowed free reign in ones life
They are bound by its stronghold
Those who step out in faith even with fear nipping at your heals
Will overcome with each step they take in sure confidence

___________________________________________________________

You can not be all talk
And no
Do
There must be action to accompany your words
In the end your action or lack of
Will ultimately decide the matter fully

___________________________________________________________

Worry brings his buddy Fear
and Fear brings his buddy Doubt
And they celebrate the Fact
that they have You and your Future
Bound
How long they celebrate
and hold you & your future in captivity
Is strictly up to YOU

___________________________________________________________
Those who never reach their potential are usually controlled by fear
When fear is allowed free reign in ones life
The person is bound by its stronghold
Those who step out in faith even with fear nipping at your heals
Will overcome with each step they take in sure confidence
___________________________________________________________

When all you see is
fear and worry
You are blinded and can not see Christ

___________________________________________________________

Recognize it only takes a little bit of sin
to destroy a big part of your life
___________________________________________________________

When worry and fear are in control of your life
they become your mirror

___________________________________________________________

When consumed by fear and worry
The space reserved for God is occupied
There is no place for God to dwell

___________________________________________________________

You are not defined by your addiction
or your race neither sexuality
You are Not defined by abuse or your childhood
You are only defined by these things if YOU
ALLOW yourself to be

___________________________________________________________

Gift giving does not have to be in the form of a package
or a neatly wrapped box
Be the gift in someone's life
___________________________________________________________
Those who criticize with no alternatives
should simply say nothing at all
For if you only have criticisms with nothing of substance or value to add
You are nothing more than a noisy gong
In which everyone is waiting to stop

___________________________________________________________

You can either do nothing about the issues that continue to plague you
Or you can begin tackling them one by one
Although painful at least you are moving forward
This is better than staying bound with no hope of change
Doing something is better than doing nothing at all
Your life is a testament to this Truth

___________________________________________________________
The level in which you love God will manifest
through your actions
Displaying your level of obedience

I also believe god gives us all we need to overcome our situations & circumstances .He gives us all we need to accomplish this . It is up to us to do the work. i always try to be honest & come with the truth and yes it hurts sometimes so brace yourself . if you can not handle it than stop now
and turn back. if you disagree with it that is fine feel free to make your own thread please do not read if
you do not take into consideration what this disclaimer explains . now it is on you . peace & blessings and may you be blessed and inspired to go to work


___________________________________________________________

The thing that will inevitably keep someone from Growing
Is pride
For pride is nothing more than a huge obstruction an
Obstacle that can only be removed by YOU

___________________________________________________________

Maturity does not have to come with age
For many are of age & yet not mature at all

___________________________________________________________

You can only achieve so much under your own power and strength
What you can not achieve on your own
God working through you
in the form of The Holy Spirit can
___________________________________________________________

If your idea of what love is
Is distorted to begin with
You will continue to put yourself in position for someone to hurt you
Love is so much more than just a feeling

___________________________________________________________

Prepare yourself to be a blessing
in someone's life today
Stop always expecting a blessing
And Be the blessing
___________________________________________________________

There are so many people walking around this earth
In pain and in need of someone just like YOU
who have been through and overcame the very issue they are in turmoil over
There is a reason you have overcame certain issues in your life
Now you owe it to others to extend the hand out of the pit
you were fortunate enough to climb out of
___________________________________________________________

When you continue to allow people to hurt you
knowing they can not be trusted
Understand the handle is on the inside of the door
YOU are allowing them to come in through

___________________________________________________________

When people have endured much pain in their life
they become numb to pain
Their emotions become unmanageable
and their feelings distorted

___________________________________________________________

By telling lies a person buries themselves
under a mound of dirt called guilt
When the winds of Truth blow threw all the of lies
They will be exposed

___________________________________________________________

A person that continuously lies and conceals the truth
has no integrity
The very fact one has to go to such lengths to hide
proves & reveals the shame and lack of character a person has

___________________________________________________________

Every lie effects more than just the person telling the lie
The hurt and pain and the damage lies can deliver to another are deep
___________________________________________________________

One should never be ashamed for needing help
in any area of their life
The problem lies not in needing help
But not asking for it

___________________________________________________________

Lies create a sense of control
for the person telling the lie
In Reality it only proves the lack of control
By trying to control a situation or circumstance with a lie you actually loose All control

___________________________________________________________
We think by gaining our independence
we will somehow gain more freedom
But the more independence we gain for ourselves
the more
Independent we become from God
___________________________________________________________

All the proof someone needs
that Jesus is in fact real and still lives
Should be YOU

___________________________________________________________

Gods love includes & involves exterminating sin
When you come into agreement with this truth & begin
to love to hate the sin that you once loved
you will start to live more free
instead of living in the bondage of sin
___________________________________________________________

At the end of the day Truth endures
As long as Truth has been taught
it will plant itself firmly in the heart
Truth can be denied but this does negate Truths Grip

___________________________________________________________

Part of becoming a man or woman is going through adversity and trial
For it develops perseverance and character
If you allow it to do so
Draw strength from it
and let it mold you and shape you
into a better man or woman

___________________________________________________________


No matter how much respect a person thinks they deserve
if it has not been earned it will not be given
Respect wants to express itself given the opportunity respect is to be mutual
If the opportunity for respect never presents itself mutually none will be given
___________________________________________________________

To spread hatred purposely shows the true character of a person
More than that their ignorance is on display before all

___________________________________________________________

When those whose goal is to belittle and stir up strife
it is only to suck others into the vacuum hole of unforgiveness bitterness
and an unfulfilled life
Do not get sucked in
___________________________________________________________

Spread love show Christ and humility
in the face of those who oppose Truth
For at one time you also denied the Truth of Christ

___________________________________________________________
Never get into a debate with a friend over views you hold strongly to
It is perfectly OK to agree to disagree
___________________________________________________________

Those who harbor unforgiveness in their hearts
will never be able to see what a gift that forgiveness is
___________________________________________________________

Unforgiveness is a prison
it is absolutely freeing to forgive
Most people do not understand the key to the prison
they are in
is in their own hands


___________________________________________________________

Show Grace not Hate
We all fall short of the Glory of God
Extend a hand not a foot

___________________________________________________________

If there must be grace for you
According to you
Than there must be grace for
everyone else
___________________________________________________________

When someone tells you that you can not do or achieve something
this should immediately be turned into the ammunition
you will need to fire back
after u have done or accomplish what you already knew
you could do & accomplish in the first place

___________________________________________________________

When a person is all talk with no Do
Their words immediately turn into
and are perceived to be nothing more than rotten fruit

___________________________________________________________

When you get caught doing things you know you should not be doing
it doesn't mean you should be more stealthy or mean you should do a better job of hiding your deeds
Those with this mentality are inevitably doomed to repeat said deeds
Those who see things truthfully will embrace not circling the same drain hole yet again

___________________________________________________________
When you get a glimpse of the hidden man or woman do not be that surprised
considering your own hidden self
Because we all have this hidden side of self
This is the side of us that needs to be made righteous
___________________________________________________________

You can build up the outside all you want through
working out , dressing up, putting on make up
All these mask enables one to keep the show going
But if the inside is hurting or dying
in the end it all turns into denial
For it is the inside that reveals & decides the matter fully
___________________________________________________________
There never really is a problem with the things we can have
The problem usually lies with the things we should not or can not have
When we finally obtain these self perceived delicacies
it is only then do we realize that they were nothing more than a snare and an entrapment
___________________________________________________________

Do the hard things now and it will pay off in the end
You will receive the good and the better things in life later by doing so

___________________________________________________________

To be convinced you are unique in the way
of being the only one who feels or have experienced
life with the lens in which you view life with
is flat out not true
You feel and are isolated because you chose
& continue to stay isolated
When you exonerate this mindset and come out of hibernation
you will find that you have more company than you ever imagined

___________________________________________________________

Those who thirst for God
In the midst of the fire
shall find living water welling up from within
themselves to quench their thirst
and relinquish the flames

___________________________________________________________

Those who seek & acknowledge God
in order for Him to direct their path
Their life will be distilled
through the righteousness of God

___________________________________________________________

If your in the habit of telling everyone
that you are doing good, fine,or OK Everyday
Your lying to yourself as well as others
Tell the Truth & the life you do live will be more freeing


___________________________________________________________

So many people keep going back
to the same chaotic mess from which they came
Simply because they function it
because that is all they know
The one thing they fail to realize
It is a Choice

___________________________________________________________

When we put ourselves in situations & circumstances
We should of had no business being in
Why is it only than do we want to acknowledge God
so that he may direct our path from that moment on?
If he was allowed to direct your path from the star
you would have never been lead into trouble to begin with
___________________________________________________________

When we close the door on God we close ourselves in
and we are left with self and in doing so
we are acknowledging self and allowing self
to direct our path and this is just insane
___________________________________________________________

While you are trying to be like someone else
Realize you are
Dismissing & Denying
the person you were created to be

___________________________________________________________

Watch your walk because you can be sure
others are watching
For men and woman are looking
for Any Excuse to deny Truth
Do Not be their reason
___________________________________________________________

No matter how large your issues that you are facing
no matter how high the mountain may seem to be
until you acknowledge that the issues or mountain exist
it doesn't

___________________________________________________________

Those who have been blessed with the Gift of
fatherhood or motherhood
Must be an Example of
What Not to do but How to do
If you are not wise & ready to behold this Truth
Do Not enter into this arena
___________________________________________________________

Most drama exist because
YOU ALLOW
Drama to not only exist
but continue

___________________________________________________________

God allows us to bring our nothing in exchange for
All that He Has
All that we aren't for
All that that He IS
And we get to become
All that He wants us to be
___________________________________________________________

Do Not desire change and expect change
and yet do Nothing
This is not only foolish
but a cycle many do not even realize
they are caught in
Change happens coupled with ACTION

___________________________________________________________

There are so many trials that God was not apart of
because he did not cause the trial we did
God will turn these trials we have put ourselves in
and bring good out of them
when allowed
if not allowed we will end up as a repeat offender

___________________________________________________________

Some of the things that are in our lives do not need prayer
they need Action and utilization
of the Power we have through the Power of The Holy Spirit

___________________________________________________________

If some people would spend half their time
not trying to be fake or trying to be like someone else
They could WORK on being themselves
They would have the chance to discover
the unique person they were created to be

___________________________________________________________

Do not compromise things in your life today
When you do
You are devaluing yourself
in ways you will ultimately have to pay for
with far greater consequences later
___________________________________________________________

When you compromise
It sets the stage for future disappointment
Stand your ground now
and you will not have to concede it later
___________________________________________________________

When you fail to apply what you learn consistently
at some point you need to realize
You are merely wasting yours & everybody else s time
More importantly you are failing to Grow
___________________________________________________________

Stop compromising truth
Step out denial & prepare Yourself
to Do what you know your capable of doing

___________________________________________________________

Walking in Truth is what sets into motion
the Reaping of a Bountiful Harvest
Walking in lies falsehoods and deceit will bring forth a drought
The harvest of dust

___________________________________________________________

When Truth is Revealed do not ignore it
For the Revelation of Truth was Given for a reason
Not everyone comes into the Knowledge of Truth
Consider yourself afforded a Blessing
If not heeded the consequences for ignoring Truth
Shall be great

___________________________________________________________

Realize you must stop trying to hide
what has already been revealed
for it was revealed for a purpose with purpose

___________________________________________________________

Repentance and Confession sets into motion
the deliverance that you so desire and seek
Without these two working together
your deliverance will surely not come
because you are not dealing with Truth

___________________________________________________________

Light is Healing
Darkness is Dying
Bring your darkness into the Light
Allow the Light of Truth and Honesty to
Consume the darkest parts of your life
or Continue the slow fade into the darkness of denial

___________________________________________________________

Without honesty change is not possible
Be honest with yourself otherwise you will stay in darkness
Light Heals darkness kills

___________________________________________________________

We all have issues from our past that need to be healed
and need deliverance from
Be Honest with yourself and Deal with them
and Handle these issues
or they will Continue to Effect your life today and the foreseeable future

___________________________________________________________

Excuses are an attack on your very own character
And an insult to someone Else's
___________________________________________________________

Stop wanting change without being honest
enough to realize that is as far as your Willing to go

___________________________________________________________

The infinite wisdom the mind is capable of is directly
linked to the capacity in which God allows

___________________________________________________________

Some call it intuition I call it The Spirit
when you learn to follow this still settle voice
you would be amazed by its infinite wisdom
and will quickly realize it is wisdom from on high

___________________________________________________________

Do not try to be like anything or anyone other than who
You where created to be
When you are caught up in trying to be like someone else
You as well as others miss out on the uniqueness
That is YOU

___________________________________________________________

Why would you expect change while only thinking about change?
True change comes from putting thoughts into Action
Otherwise expect Nothing in return for your thoughts
___________________________________________________________

In order to Overcome your past,you must Honestly Acknowledge
your pain with intent to Overcome by Any means
necessary Working TIRELESSLY until Victory is Achieved
Only than will you be rewarded with being able to Live for your future

___________________________________________________________

Be sure to build those around you up
Be attentive to others needs and do your best to aid them
in their quest to fulfill them within reason
___________________________________________________________

Grace in the midst of the storm is your best bet

___________________________________________________________

I am no good for myself
for my worst and most brutal enemy
lies within self
This is precisely why I needed
And continue to need a
Savior

___________________________________________________________

Your own discipline can only take you so far
in any area of your life especially with addictions
It is through the Power of the Holy Spirit
that Enables one to Uphold the discipline
into the Maturity of the Everlasting

___________________________________________________________

Fruitlessness in ones life
is a product of even the slightest slumber
apart from Christ

___________________________________________________________

When you Forgive people who have wronged you
and you Bless those who have cursed you
You end up being able to catch a glimpse
of what it means to be
Christ Like

___________________________________________________________

Having a victim mentality will Keep you
reoccurring in the same staring role as the victim
If this is You recognize you will Never
get to where you Need to be in life
living in this realm of the victim
At some point you need to become Victorious

___________________________________________________________

Some of life's greatest moments happen
when you are not as concerned for yourself
but more concerned for others around you
And you allow this concern to manifest into Action

___________________________________________________________

When you live life selfishly
this is quite evident to those around you
The sad but also true fact
is you are usually the last one to realize this
___________________________________________________________

Consistency is the key to Overcoming
and achieving
Without consistency nothing is to be gained
except for the realization and knowledge of the
Need to be more consistent

___________________________________________________________

In order to Overcome
one Must be able to Confront the discomforts or "lies"
in their life
No longer tolerating and ignoring them
but Acknowledging the uncomfortable Truth
For they are Truths none the less
Working tirelessly to Overcome them
what ever "they" may be
The more uncomfortable you are, probably means
that you have more Work to do in order to Overcome
and finally be able to Walk & Live In Truth

___________________________________________________________

Do not allow the spirit of anger to cause you to react
in the Heat of the moment
Allow from within the Holy Spirit
which is the Living Water
to extinguish the flames of angers passions

___________________________________________________________

As parents we want our children to have a better life
than we had or even have
In the pursuit of wanting this better life
we can Not
put the burdensome weight of perfection upon them
Wanting great things for them yes
and deservedly so , but within reason
This vision must not become blurry in the process
If you do
you risk the chance of putting them in the position
of feeling unworthy

___________________________________________________________

Peoples "normal" is only a product
of what their so called "normal" was growing up everyone's different
For those of us
who are able to find share and relate
our sense of "normal" in ways that bind
others will never understand
because of their own perceived notions
of what "normal" is suppose to be or look like

___________________________________________________________

When you hear of a need
Fulfill it
When you see heart ache
Do not ignore it
When you discern someone anyone in need of prayer
Than pray with them
Be the blessing

___________________________________________________________

What you Learn Teach
Pass on wisdom from on high
And wisdom that comes from knowledge
In doing so you allow others as well as yourself
To become not only smarter
but better off than having not shared
the infinite wisdom afforded to us
In order to grow
___________________________________________________________

What we have learned from our own life experiences
We are obligated to share with others
In order to help keep those who come after us
out of the same mud holes we were blessed
enough to crawl out of
It's really not all about you

Thought Provoking Truth
___________________________________________________________

Wisdom is precious & wisdom is to be shared
so others may grow in ways that would not be possible otherwise
How much wisdom are you concealing from the world?

___________________________________________________________

Do your best to show love today to the people around you
The only example of love someone see's today could be YOU

___________________________________________________________

When you have been abused and do not forgive
you abuse yourself repeatedly by not forgiving
allowing the abuser to continue to abuse you every time you bring up the anger and bitterness
Realize you have chosen to hold on to Unforgiveness keeping you bound
You hold the key to the prison you are in ,the key of forgiveness will unlock the cell

___________________________________________________________

The debt we think people owe us can be repaid by forgiving them
We have the power to cancel others debt with forgiveness
setting us free of the stress and anger of Unforgiveness
___________________________________________________________
It is Not necessary to understand why something has happen to us
in order to forgive
There are things we will never understand why they have happen to us
so there is no reason to let unforgiveness keep us bound for the rest of our life
Forgive and be set FREE

___________________________________________________________

If you are doing more work on Someone Else's life than your own
realize that this great Distraction is keeping you
from becoming all that you were created to be
and this tactic is working flawlessly
___________________________________________________________
If you put yourself in position to sin
you are going to inevitably sin
That's not on God that's on YOU
What are you Doing to keep you from the shame cycles?
Your actions will tell the Truth about how serious you are about truly Overcoming
Otherwise you are in self denial and the cycles continue
___________________________________________________________


When you notice someone is down
it should be you who picks them up
There is a Reason You were the one that noticed
If you do not lift them up
you will never no the reason
Be the Change

___________________________________________________________


We are called to missions
Not just in other countries
The Kingdom of God is within us
and where we go he is right there with us
Missions is a very misunderstood thing
All who are in Christ are missionaries
___________________________________________________________

What are you Doing to change the harmful habits
that have been continuously revealed to you through the same tired shameful cycles?
If the Only thing you are Doing is Ignoring them
Expect nothing more than more of the Shame

___________________________________________________________

What are you being called to say yes to?
What Excuses are you using that are hindering your progress?
Excuses keep you from GROWING

___________________________________________________________

Be a blessing in someone's life today
instead of always asking for one
Be the difference in someone's life now not later
Be the Change
___________________________________________________________

You must understand when you are dissatisfied with sin
and are working on your sin
and you are broken over your sin
but you are just not strong enough Yet to Overcome
In this place is where you will find Abounding Grace

___________________________________________________________

Most of the time
the reason we have not stopped our addictive behaviors
is because deep down we are not Willing to give it up
When we are Truly Honest with ourselves of this Truth
we will put fourth the Real enough Effort Necessary to Overcome
___________________________________________________________

Those who understand grace and forgiveness
are able to show grace and forgiveness
because they realize their own
Necessity for grace and forgiveness Daily
___________________________________________________________


If you are not Willing to ask for help
you will not be able to except help
Only those who want help will Utilize help
___________________________________________________________

There are some people that function in chaos
and are totally oblivious to the fact
that it is chaos because
that is all they have ever known
When outside the realm of chaos and confusion
they feel the need to create it
Everyone has a story, are you helping or hurting?
___________________________________________________________

It is not the change itself that is fearful
It is the anticipation of the change that is
When change is Finally Achieved
Change is Embraced
Embrace the in between and you can enjoy the whole
Journey
___________________________________________________________

By not forgiving you are hindering your growth
as a person and you are hindering your relationship
with others
Why would you give someone that much power ?

___________________________________________________________

You can forgive people
but do not expect their sorry to be real
until you see actual change an actual turning away from the same behavior
When they show the fruit of repentance
than and only than may you see the evidence and believe

___________________________________________________________

Allow others actions to be their own judge
There is no need to judge a person
In fact , it is their actions that will Expose themselves

___________________________________________________________

Never be satisfied where you are at because
there is Always something to learn and grow in one or more area's of your life
If you are not learning and growing you are not looking
or sadly ignoring the area's that have already been revealed

___________________________________________________________

Your actions good or bad
Usually have a profound effect
on more than one person
These actions can effect entire generations
Be mindful of this Truth
Think before you act

___________________________________________________________

When you do hurtful things
It almost never effects one person

___________________________________________________________

The sincerity of a person who is sorry for having wronged you
Is coupled with the Actions and Evidence of
Not being a repeat offender
___________________________________________________________


If other people's failed responsibilities have hindered you personally in your life
do not let these failed reresponsibility define you
If you do allow Unforgiveness to rule your heart
realize you are allowing their failed responsibilities to define you
Do not allow such power over you
Forgive & OVERCOME

___________________________________________________________
You have to understand we are All sinners
and fall short of the Glory of God
Knowing this Truth,realize people are sinners
JUST LIKE YOU ARE
This alone should make it easier
to forgive & show grace

___________________________________________________________

Imagine the time and energy you could be saving
if you released YOURSELF from Not forgiving
Not to mention the
anger, bitterness, & hostility
it takes to hold onto
Unforgiveness. In the end
it Cost You more not to forgive than to forgive

___________________________________________________________

Do not try to be like anything or anyone
other than who you where created to be
which is Authentic
Otherwise you become like the masses
and that is
being FAKE
___________________________________________________________

While it is great to have someone pushing you
to be all you can be
You need to get to the point in your life
where you develop enough confidence
To be all you can be with or without the push
because there will be times when there will be no one there to push you
___________________________________________________________

Notice someone today
Give of yourself today
Be YOU
be the change

___________________________________________________________

The things you are seriously working on today
Are preparation for tomorrow's future
If you are working on Nothing today
Than the future will always look bleak
Your future will continue to bring you Nothing

___________________________________________________________

Christians live out their faith
Religious people make a mockery
Of theirs

___________________________________________________________

Keeping secrets is a internal slow death
Relinquishing them allows the struggling soul from within
to become untangled and free
___________________________________________________________

Do not just listen to the word and not obey what is revealed to you or you are wasting your time
and God's time
Not only that you are setting up a deceitful pattern
to follow
You are creating a false God in your mind
by reading truth and than doing something other than what was revealed
you are compromising the word of God
for your own will thus creating a false God
This is not the God of the bible
it is the God of your own creation
___________________________________________________________

The word of God should make your flesh squirm
and make you uncomfortable , if it does not you are probably trying to water it down
The word of God should pierce you
right down to your bone and marrow
because it is sharper than a double edge sword
and it needs to be in order to separate
the flesh from The Spirit
___________________________________________________________

Wise counsel can save you and others
from battles you should of never had to fight
in the first place
Wise counsel does not consist of
the one giving the counsel to agree with you
Wise counsel is to give you a perspective
you can not or would not of seen or understood
___________________________________________________________
Words can provide comfort to the soul
or
Words can provide death to the soul
Be mindful of what you say and how you say it

Thought Provoking Truth
___________________________________________________________



Do not let your past chew your future to pieces
Allowing your past to live in your future
Do not even allow your yesterday to infiltrate your today
Put yesterday to death and receive life's gift of today

___________________________________________________________

Do not ask of others opinions
Only to justify you your conviction
You already know the truth in your heart
Do not compromise it a way

___________________________________________________________

Make amends as soon as possible
because the longer you do not make amends
the more people you will effect negatively
___________________________________________________________

You must humble yourself before The Lord God
Thus enabling him to bring fourth his mercy and grace
into your life
After you receive this glorious gift
You must turn around and extend it to others

___________________________________________________________

Do not be the cause of your own madness
by not relinquishing your past

___________________________________________________________

Emphatic disobedience will heap upon yourself
consequences of a destructive nature
On the other hand emphatic obedience
will bring great blessing into your midst
___________________________________________________________

Do not run from the Truth run Towards the Truth
because Truth is where your Healing lies
Truth is where your Deliverance lies
Truth is where you will Find the Necessities to Overcome
___________________________________________________________

The Seriousness of you Commitment to Overcoming
your addictions will be Seen by your Actions
Not the lack of

___________________________________________________________

In order to Overcome your past
You Must be Honest with your present
Than you can begin to live for your future
___________________________________________________________

Refuse to live in prison because of yesterday
do not allow others to bring it into your today
___________________________________________________________

Never be satisfied with where you are
Because the things you except as satisfactory
will in time become mediocre and you will become stagnant
Therefore always be Willing to Learn & Grow

___________________________________________________________

When it comes to ourselves
we understand and almost expect grace on very intimate levels
but when it comes time to show and extend grace
we act as if we are completely ignorant on the matter

___________________________________________________________

Refuse to be average in all things
Being the example for those who do not understand
Excellence

___________________________________________________________

While dwelling on yesterdays failures
You miss the opportunities
of Today's
Blessings
___________________________________________________________

If you lie about who you are
You do not know or understand
Who you are in the first place

___________________________________________________________
A man must have accountability
without it he will not stand upright
for very long

___________________________________________________________

Embrace who you really are
Do not put on a phoney facade
By putting on the mask of falsehood
you deny and begin to lose
who you were created to be

___________________________________________________________

Living a lie is living in denial of the truth
Engage truth and live according to it
Shedding the false facade
that enables the lie to continue
___________________________________________________________

Apply the life lessons from yesterday to your today
so you do not end up repeating them
___________________________________________________________

Some people do not want to even heal
they would rather wallow in self pity
and admittedly I have been one of these people
You have to come to a point and realize
that keeping a victim mentality
will only keep you bound in victim chains
As adults we have a Choice to control our destiny
and become victorious instead of a victim
___________________________________________________________

Just because you disagree with an opinion
Does not mean the opinion should not be expressed

___________________________________________________________

The things you are seriously working on today
Are preparation for tomorrow's future
If you are working on Nothing today
Than the future will always look bleak
Your future will continue to bring you Nothing

___________________________________________________________

Those who constantly dwell on their pain
will be ruled by it
Those who set their mind to Overcome their pain
even in the midst of it
Will eventually Overcome
and take dominion over their pain

___________________________________________________________

While becoming a victim of someone Else's choosing
was Not a choice
Staying a victim is however a Choice

___________________________________________________________

As you go through this life
Are you lighting the way
for those who are stumbling through the darkness ?
Or are you turning the lights out along the way ?

___________________________________________________________

At the very end of self
Is the beginning of Christ
Letting go of self
and relinquishing self unto Him
will enable Christ to work fully in your life
The very power that raised Christ is within you
If you are not utilizing it that is on you
___________________________________________________________

When you reach the point that you think
you no longer have to listen to what someone is teaching
because you think you know it all already
that is the time you will miss yet another opportunity
to Grow

___________________________________________________________

The difference between those that make it
and those who don't
Are Excuses
___________________________________________________________

Are you building your
nothing with Excuses ?
Or are you building your
Something with Action ?

___________________________________________________________

Bring your nothing
for we truly have nothing
To give
and God will turn into More
than you could ever imagine

___________________________________________________________

Conviction comes from Christ
Condemnation comes from Satan
Conviction aides in your Growth
Condemnation Destroys your growth
___________________________________________________________

Realize when you allow
Wisdom & Knowledge
to be Lost
It falls on your own shoulders
For not utilizing it when it was given

___________________________________________________________

Those who Choose to wallow in self pity
are usually the first to be offended by Truth
spoken to them
These people would rather stay in a victim state of mind
Just so they will Not have to Do the WORK
it takes to Overcome

___________________________________________________________

You need to realize God is not going to speak to man
as he did before Christ
No burning bushes no moving clouds or thunderous voice
from heaven
He is dwelling inside you in the form
Of The Holy Spirit and he speaks to you Constantly

___________________________________________________________
Listen to the instruction
the holy spirit reveals
All of the answers to your direction can be found by
Simply listening and obeying the prompting of the holy spirit
You will suffer harm one way or another by not obeying
Some call it your conscience
Some say something told me
Simply put this is the spirit of God leading
The question is Are you following or ignoring?
The answer will be found in your obedience or lack of
___________________________________________________________

In order to Grow
Pay close Attenton to the things
that Need to Go
Than Remove the Hindrances
Only than will you be able to Grow

___________________________________________________________
Everything done in the dark
is going to come into the light
It will come into the light
through your actions
through your demeanor through your character
___________________________________________________________

Stop taking inventory of others
Look inside yourself and take a serious inventory
of what needs to change
The time and effort you are putting towards
trying to "fix" others
is nothing more than a distraction
from moving your own mountains out of your own life
___________________________________________________________

Be mindful of your thoughts
Always be ready to cast down and out
thoughts that will lead to unhealthy thinking
Think about what you are thinking about
so you can test whether it should stay or go
After all it is a choice

____________________________________________________________

Learn to love yourself
First and foremost
Only than will you be able
Fill yourself with enough love to share it properly with
Others

___________________________________________________________

Just because you are mad or angry
does not give you the Excuse to
Compromise Truth
___________________________________________________________

If you are Serious about Growth
you Must have
Accountability
Without accountability you are more suspect
to fall back into the same failed mentality
Becoming nothing more than a repeat offender

___________________________________________________________

You can either Choose to handle
Your addictions or your addictions will
Continue to Handle YOU
and all of the others you are letting them effect

___________________________________________________________

You can not go out and give what you do not have
First get yourself filled up with the Spirit of God
and than go out into the world and breath it out
Reflecting the very nature of Christ

___________________________________________________________

All of my worth can only be found in Christ
for all that I was belongs to him
and everything thing I am today is because of
Christ Jesus

___________________________________________________________

Through suffering it reduces us to nothing
Enabling us to hear from God clearly
Because through suffering
We are willing to hear from God

___________________________________________________________

Conviction is God's subtle voice reminding us
that
What we are doing is Not working
Allow conviction to bring about a turning away from
What is in fact sin thus triggering sanctification
Enabling
Conformity to the imagine of Christ
Which produces fruit in your life

___________________________________________________________

Having a form of Godliness and not embracing the power afforded to you
by living the Christian life In truth
only enables you to live a lie and you will always
come up short instead of living in the fullness
that comes with living the life not living the lie

___________________________________________________________
To overcome the flesh
you must build your spiritual life
to such heights
What your flesh is to weak to overcome
the spirit can

Thought Provoking Truth


___________________________________________________________

There is a distinction between
Who you are
and what you are
When you can figure out
how to merge the two
Than you can decide
who you want be


___________________________________________________________

When we do not seek the counsel of the wise
or acknowledge God in All of his ways
than we are left with our own limited understanding
Exchanging the unlimitedness of God
for the limitedness of our thinking
Do not exchanged truth for lies

___________________________________________________________

Why would you hold onto the 10 percent
of the things you think that are going to make you temporarily happy
while sacrificing the 90 percent
of the peace joy and contentment God has for you ?

___________________________________________________________

Satan promises green & lush pasture
with plentiful land in exchange for sin
But after the sin
All you find is dry desert with famished land

___________________________________________________________

People do not need to hear a sermon all the time.
They need to see the sermon demonstrated by you.

___________________________________________________________

Time spent complaining
is time that should of been spent Conquering
Time spent living in fear
Is time that should of been spent Fighting
Time spent wondering why things are still the same
is time that should have been spent Working

___________________________________________________________

People say thing's that are uninformed and make mistakes.
That being said , everyone deserves the chance to learn and grow
and become informed so that mistakes can be minimized in the future

___________________________________________________________

Teenager's want "freedom"
so bad
They have convinced themselves
that they have somehow magically obtained it already
While actually still living at home

___________________________________________________________

People are products of their childhood
Having to react to the environment they lived in
As adults you can control not only how you react
But you have a choice of the environment you
place yourself in
So you are without Excuse to Change

___________________________________________________________

When a person lies
It should do something to the soul
When it does nothing
It is only evidence that integrity & character
Mean Nothing

___________________________________________________________

More people despise
Truth & enjoy compromise
The sad reality is
The enjoyment of compromise is temporary
While walking and living inside the realm of Truth is lasting

___________________________________________________________

When you deny Truth
You are essentially denying the benefits that come with it
You are Willfully Choosing and Accepting the Consequences of its denial

___________________________________________________________

The good that comes from being hurt by others
Is now you are qualified
to help others not to be

___________________________________________________________
To deny Truth is Self
Defeat

___________________________________________________________

When you reject Wisdom & Truth
For Compromise & Deceit
You become entangled & ensnared
in your own Stupidity
This is called self deceit & defeat

___________________________________________________________

Those that pause and begin looking for an attaboy
will be passed by the person
still Striving and Working on perfection

___________________________________________________________

Overcoming the struggle pain and heartache
This life can and will bring
Only to become stronger
It just seems as if
these where all meant to go together

___________________________________________________________

To become Great
Suffering is a
Prerequisite

___________________________________________________________

Everyone has a facade and when you allow others
to see past this facade
you allow others to see the real you
This allows people a chance to realize
we all have a lot more in common
than one might think

___________________________________________________________

There is a downfall to being a committed person
although you are committed to good things
problem is your probably equally as committed
to some of the bad things
___________________________________________________________

Addicts are master manipulators
but mainly masters at manipulating self
into denial

___________________________________________________________

There is a distance within myself from the reality
From being abused
The closer I get to the reality
I feel as broken as shattered glass
fragments scattered
The more distance I put between this reality
It is as if I become whole and complete

___________________________________________________________

I believe God tries to get your attention always beckoning you prodding you calling you
Are you listening & hearing ?
Many are called and do not answer the call
If you do not answer him you are missing out on your predetermined destiny
and settling for a life of your own predetermined destructiveness

___________________________________________________________

You will notice actual change within yourself
when you begin to handle adversity as it comes along
Instead of being handled by adversity

Thought Provoking Truth


___________________________________________________________


Take on this attitude
You can either stay where you are at
and suffer or you can do the work
while suffering through with the end result
of being in a better place
Staying the same is not optional
if you are going to suffer it might as well be for progress

___________________________________________________________


Just think of all that could be accomplished
instead of complaining & making
Excuses
Opportunities to Improve
are squandered
By complaining & Excuses


___________________________________________________________

Do not allow people to drag you back down to being a victim
stay walking in victory
thus allowing them a chance to join you


___________________________________________________________

Your Commitment to Truly
Change
Will be Plainly Seen
by and through
Your Actions


___________________________________________________________

If you are not hungering and thirsting for righteousness
in order to be filled
Than you will be hungering and thirsting for self
Never able to achieve fulfillment


___________________________________________________________


When we start breaking free from our chaos
We have a tendency to want to either create new
chaos or run back to the old
Only because that was all we ever knew
Resist it and you will actually be able to live
in the realm of sanity


___________________________________________________________

One Must be
Proactive in order to Overcome
Not
Inactive


___________________________________________________________


Be selfless & serve
Not selfish & absorbed


___________________________________________________________

Realize out of the billions of people on this earth
There is only one YOU
No one can do what you were created to do
Just be YOU


___________________________________________________________

It is not about the distance
traveled in life
It is more about
How
You traveled
That matters


___________________________________________________________

Forgive and be freed
from the chains in which
You
Hold the keys to


___________________________________________________________

Gather strength not just for self
but to serve later
Because serving self is destructive
Serving others is what we are called to do

___________________________________________________________

With Resentment you are being destroyed from the inside
and it manifest itself on the outside


___________________________________________________________


Realize You have do have dominion over your thoughts
That is unless your thoughts have dominion over you
Thus manifesting your image of yourself in a negative way
Having dominion over your thoughts will also manifest
Outwardly expressing a great love for not only yourself but
Others as well


___________________________________________________________


You want what others have
Not satisfied with what you do have
So you want their life in exchange for yours
Not Willing to put in the Work it takes to obtain it
Strange ain't it ?
Instead of wanting what others have
Work what you do have and maybe you'll go further than
the very people you envy



___________________________________________________________


Everyone is a hypocrite in one way or another
Instead of acting or portraying as if you are not
Realize we are all in the same boat none better than the other
But what should separate us are those who are seeking & working
diligently to be less of a hypocrite



___________________________________________________________

Stop dancing with your demons
Confront them


___________________________________________________________

If being Real instead of fake
causes people not to like me than
real I must be

___________________________________________________________

Do not love like the world does
The worlds way of love involves Lying & telling you
what you want to hear
Real love tells the Truth



___________________________________________________________


Grace is not for you to wallow in sin in the slop of it all.
Grace is given un to thee while one is weak in their faith weak in their walk and yet
strengthening and conditioning themselves to one day to be strong enough in their faith
and strong enough in their walk to live in the power of Christ
through the renewing of their mind and under the direction leading and guidance of the holy spirit.
Grace is a magnificent and glorious gift to those who call on the name of Jesus Christ Lord of All.
Grace will sustain anyone willing to work out their salvation with fear and trembling.
Grace after working it's full measure eventually leads to Overcoming.




___________________________________________________________

When our interest of self is exchanged
for the interest of Christ
We will begin to understand
that Satan manipulates us with self-interest
above the principals of God
And we shall fall Every time when this is the case
And deservedly so thus making self-interest our God
Exalt Christ not self



___________________________________________________________


The only way to obey the teachings of Christ
Is to First and foremost Love God
To Love God is to Love Christ
In doing so you will want to be obedient
Without The Love for them both you will always
Be chasing the unobtainable



___________________________________________________________

It is a Daily battle to continuously
consciously pick up your cross
and lay down selfishness and follow Christ


___________________________________________________________

Those who truly have a heart for God
want to bring before him all of their weaknesses
sin failures and all the filthy mess that lies within themselves
in order for them to to be strengthened
healed and delivered from them. Bringing into the light
the things that are of the dark to be plainly seen
by men in order that the glory of god may be revealed through such honesty.

___________________________________________________________



The hope found In Christ
Is not a matter of if but when
Worldly hope is wishful thinking
Hope in Christ is a Knowing
___________________________________________________________

When we get to the end of self as far as self can take us
is when and where
we ultimately find God
and the hardest part after allowing him in
is the fact he has always been there
the whole time calling us and
beckoning us to come


___________________________________________________________

The path to power is through obedience
I have found the closer that I draw nearer to God
and walk in obedience
the more power I receive
I fall yes but always have the power to get back up
Where as before I would just stay down



___________________________________________________________

Just as an addict might use anabuse in order to to help them not use
Once saved the holy spirit takes on the form of anabuse
in the sense the spirit convicts in order to up lift
If you are not ready to stop being an addict
nothing can be said or done to make you change
the only way you are going to change is if you want to change
Much like being saved is a choice one has to make
Recovery class church service bible study at church is my medicine to help me not use again
Being sober is always an option there is always the option to drink or use but knowing it is always going to end terrifyingly awful helps keep me sober
The little strength we do have is all we will have because we must rely on the strength Found in Christ in order to truly overcome


___________________________________________________________

Every trial situation and circumstance
Every refinement is necessary
It is nothing more than the path leading us
Into perfection
Leading us Home



___________________________________________________________

The word of God is universal and yet personal
You can Not put God's word in a box
It has the Power to mean so many things
to each individual because
It needs to be able to meet each person
right where they are in their life
As one grows in faith and knowledge
and obedience In the word of God
It will become even more transcendent
and take the individual deeper and deeper
into the consciousness of the spiritual realm
where God dwells where wisdom and knowledge are
limitless without bounds
The word of God is the most profound book
on the entire planet
Bringing fourth all one needs
to unlock the mystery within themselves
As well as the mystery of the meaning and purpose of life revealed with such thought provoking essence
to last all of your years of life



___________________________________________________________

In our sufferings In all circumstances and situations
in this life God is to be found there
somewhere some how some way
He will conform us one way or another for his glory
The faster we get on board with his plan
the more he will be able to use us to glorify him
He will conform us willingly or unwillingly
it is because we choose most of the time to go unwillingly we suffer so much


___________________________________________________________

There is nothing more beutiful than teaching
the word of God
Sharing with others the goodness of the Gospel


___________________________________________________________

Get out of your feelings
It is not about your feelings
However it is about God's Promises

Thought Provoking Truth


___________________________________________________________



The church building you attend
should be the one place that broken people can come for healing
NOT a place to come to be broken

___________________________________________________________

In order to achieve even more progress in your own life
You need to take the progress you expect from others\
and first apply it to our own
___________________________________________________________

We tend to see grace so clearly when we find ourselves in need of grace
and yet so blind when it comes to others
in need of grace this undeserving pardon

___________________________________________________________

Grace should invoke thankfulness and a true humility
and a repentant heart
Not a continual thirst for more of the very thing
grace was given to cover
___________________________________________________________

To live for Christ is to put to death self
Reaching for new levels of morality
is Not what it means to be Christian
Being Christian Is an inward circumcision of your inner being
A continuous transformation of your character
the person you are in the dark not the person you present to the light
___________________________________________________________

You attend a building an institution not a church
YOU are The Church
You bring church to the building

___________________________________________________________

If you continue living life in the realm of your past
you will never be able to walk in the newness
of your future

___________________________________________________________
Your past includes your yesterday
therefore put it behind you and leave it there
so that you can properly focus on your future

___________________________________________________________

Taking Action is a condition that
Must be met in order to Overcome your issues
Not denying they exist

___________________________________________________________

False Christianity does not exists
Either your saved or not
Either a conversion happened or it did not
It is an Impossibility not to change
when you have the holy spirit PERIOD !!
___________________________________________________________

Do not make excuses
engage the battles that life throws at you
___________________________________________________________

Being a Christian without submission
to Christ
is not Christianity at all
It's Self Deception
___________________________________________________________
Is Christ the object
of your affection ?
Or is it the objects
that have your affection ?

___________________________________________________________

If you believe everyone should believe what you believe
and expect people to agree with everything that flows out your mouth
you are either out of touch with reality
or delusional

___________________________________________________________

Atheist sure do spend a lot of time talking about a God
that supposedly does not exists....
Hmmmm...

___________________________________________________________

Put into practice the lessons that you have learned
through life's struggles
or you will be a repeat offender

___________________________________________________________

Never get to the point that you become unteachable
There is always something to learn
There is always room to Grow
Never settle for mediocrity

___________________________________________________________

Do not take someone at there word simply by trusting
You will see the trueness of the word that was spoken
when the obligation is met
Than you will see if their word's had the integrity
in which they wanted you to believe
___________________________________________________________

The moving inside your heart not the physical heart
the spiritual one the one behind your heart the soul
The knowing and interacting voice
Thats The Spirit , listen to it Obey it
and your life will change

___________________________________________________________

Those who are stuck in their past
are just like someone running up a hill
looking backwards Never able to gain proper ground

___________________________________________________________
When you find yourself judging others
all you are truly doing is exalting self
and ignoring your own shortcomings

___________________________________________________________
Some people act fake because they have no clue
what it means to be real
because they do not know who they are

___________________________________________________________
When you try to help those
who's condition is worst off than your own
recognize that they have the ability to
pull you under and leave you in a worst condition
than you were before the encounter

___________________________________________________________

Those who hate rules are typically
those who do not know how to follow them

___________________________________________________________

Never allow another person to make you feel guilty
because you have chosen to better yourself
and make progress in your life
They will ultimately need to know it can be done
and you just might be their only road-map

___________________________________________________________
When Chaos comes towards you
Turn the opposite direction
Do not engage chaos or you will be
Entangled in the Madness

___________________________________________________________
You have to start somewhere
You have to First acknowledge your issues
and realize you have them
Before you can tackle them
Otherwise it is if they do not exist
Even though they do

___________________________________________________________

Stop giving anything to those excepting
if they complain about everything

___________________________________________________________

The great things about bad decisions
is that at any given moment at any given time
you can Choose to Stop making them

___________________________________________________________

The great things about bad decisions
is that at any given moment at any given time
you can Choose to Stop making them

___________________________________________________________

Forgiveness allows us to be free of things we can not change excepting the things that we can
We can choose to forgive because if we do not
we will never be able to live the abundant future
we can live by doing so
No longer bound by the past but excepting
that we can create a better future by leaving those things which we have no control over anymore
___________________________________________________________

Those who live life with intentions to disrupt others lives
only do so because of the environment in which they where raised
Once recognized it is no longer an excuse
to go on doing so
___________________________________________________________

The proverbs are a road map for this life
of those who have traveled the road before you
with Much Success
You would be wise to listen
and follow in the foot steps

___________________________________________________________

The fact is people who have injured you
or have wronged you have a type of suffering
unto themselves
and forgiveness allows you to be free
___________________________________________________________
Usually the loudest person and most boisterous person
is the most broken because of a deceptive spirit
They have created a facade and live behind it
instead of confessing their brokenness in order to receive the help they need
___________________________________________________________

When you forgive
Do not expect the changing of the heart
In the person you forgive
You should however have a change within
Your own

___________________________________________________________

Do Not hide from pain anymore
acknowledge it
and deal with it confront it
This is the only way to handle pain
When you bury,ignore or run from pain
it only makes it worst

___________________________________________________________
Never let pride keep you from asking for help
or for anything for that matter
Pride shackles you to a lie

___________________________________________________________

Do not engage the conversation
when someone is spewing hurtful words
Or you will be reaping along with what is sown

___________________________________________________________
Your opinion about a person can be changed
With just a few unkindly words spoken
with intent to damage another soul
Sooner or later the true condition
of the heart will be Exposed
for who they are Not
___________________________________________________________

We do not have the right to judge anyone
We should love in place of judgement

___________________________________________________________
Fear is a false illusion
Your mind has created
Blocking you from greatness
Remove the fear and engage the path
that leads to your full potential

___________________________________________________________

If your not used to having money
and now it has become a regularity
Learn to manage & steward it faithfully
before you make hasty decisions
Because the money can go as quickly as it came
___________________________________________________________
Continue to walk in integrity
Regardless if those around
you insist on walking shamelessly

___________________________________________________________

Think about the gossip circle you indulge in
Now think about the kind of of things
that are being said about YOU
when your not in said circle
Ironic isn't it
___________________________________________________________

If our lives where not so "busy"
We would recognize the love we have
for others the deep profound love
But sadly it takes death to understand this
Truth is it doesn't have to be that way
___________________________________________________________
Stop walking towards Chaos
When you see Chaos walk Away from it
If Chaos tries to follow you run from it
When you walk away from Chaos
You walk towards PEACE
It's a CHOICE

___________________________________________________________
Pride refuses to ask for help
Whereas Humility will not only ask for help
but humility will listen and apply the wisdom
and instruction given
___________________________________________________________

Wisdom & Foolishness
have no business mingling together
Wisdom enacted keeps foolishness at bay
___________________________________________________________
While living a life trying to please others
you will find yourself living out side of your own character
You're not being who God created you to be
___________________________________________________________

Do not let other peoples hatred
Blind you and keep you from going
Where you need to be going

___________________________________________________________

Your desires are
Not to define you
Your desires and passions are Not
to direct your path
Your desires are Not your
Identity


___________________________________________________________


Do not try to reason with the unreasonable
The time and efforts can be spent
more productively

___________________________________________________________

You cannot love someone if you do not first
and foremost love yourself
The little bit of love that you might have for yourself will be very evident in the way you presented to others

Thought Provoking Truth


___________________________________________________________

When we walk through the fires of this life
we are not to be consumed by the flames
We are to Shine Brighter
___________________________________________________________

Those who bring false accusations against you
Show their true character
And in the end their own lie will be
EXPOSED

___________________________________________________________

Hiding behind a lie
Prolongs and intensifies
the inevitable consequences
when the lie is exposed

___________________________________________________________

Do not change who you are to appease anyone
If they do not except you
for who you are than realize
that this amounts to being their loss and your gain
___________________________________________________________

As parent's you Must Constantly Evolve
or you can quickly become irrelevant
and even become Extinct
___________________________________________________________

Do not debate your faith in Jesus Christ
just take comfort in the fact
that you are right and they are wrong !!
Not because you said so but because God has said so
___________________________________________________________

How you handle life when it brings you pain
will produce two results
Pain will show you who you really are
and pain will most definitely show you
who you are not
___________________________________________________________

True love is Unconditional
to love in spite of
When love is conditional
than you know the truth
It was never love to begin with
___________________________________________________________

Think of the great reality of the salvation given unto you
in doing so you will come to realize that what
you will find is more than enough to last an eternity

___________________________________________________________

Just because someone is smiling on the outside
Does not ensure that their heart is also
___________________________________________________________

If someone tells you that they love you
only to tell you later that they hate you
than this shows you the truth of the supposed love
they had for you in the first place
It was conditional

___________________________________________________________

You can Not heal a broken soul
Those who try always end up broken
Themselves

___________________________________________________________

The spirit is intelligent it knows exactly
what we need and when
We just have to be willing to listen
When we seek the things of God we will find therefore also, the things of God
When we do seek and find conformation will follow
God is so good

___________________________________________________________

Love brings together where hatred separates
Where discord & strife dwells
Love comes in and settles
the matter
___________________________________________________________

The church building you attend should be the one place that broken people can come for healing
NOT a place to come to be broken

___________________________________________________________

Atheist sure do spend a lot of time talking about
a God that supposedly does not exists....
Hmmmm...

___________________________________________________________

A person that is not willing to ask Christ
into their life
will never experience the life he has for them
___________________________________________________________

There is nothing more beutiful than teaching
the word of God and
Sharing with others the goodness of the Gospel

___________________________________________________________

Get out of your feelings
It is not about your feelings
However it is about God's Promises
___________________________________________________________

Negative post breeds negative thinking & allows
people to stay in the same negative space
Just saying
___________________________________________________________

There are those that
Choose to live in this thing called Reality
Than there are those who Choose to live in
Denial

___________________________________________________________

Change comes when
coupled with Action
Not mere contemplation

___________________________________________________________

People that have love want others to feel this love
Those that are filled with sadness
will suck all of the happiness out of those around them
___________________________________________________________
Hope lives within you
therefore wherever you are Hope should be there also
Love is within you therefore
wherever you are Love should be there also
Faith is within you therefore wherever you are
Faith should be there also
___________________________________________________________

Maturity comes when your reality aligns
with truth in that You
are responsible for the situations and circumstances
in which you have place yourself in
no longer blaming others

___________________________________________________________

Those who make absurd and ludicrous claims
about you with no causation's
Only do so to bolster their own denial about themselves
This only takes the focus off of themselves just long enough
to continue the delusion
___________________________________________________________

Realize you can not save someone
From themselves
This is an Impossibility

___________________________________________________________
Excuses Lying and Laziness
They all do nothing but produce Denial

___________________________________________________________
Your past is a prison that you can Choose
to walk out of and into your future
anytime that You Choose to

___________________________________________________________
Someone who has been sexually abused
is reduced to a life long mental battle
in which those who have not been exposed
to such extreme emotion will never be able to grasp

___________________________________________________________
The damage done to yourself
by holding onto things you know
you should be letting go of
does nothing but stunt your progress
in All areas of your life
Is it worth it ? It's time to DO
___________________________________________________________


The absence of love is a direct result of a choice


___________________________________________________________

Listen to the love song placed within your heart
and live it out

___________________________________________________________

Love learns from it's mistakes
it does not continue to make them
Love embraces correction in order to move forward
Love wants to grow every day
and wants to be shared

___________________________________________________________

Learn and grow from your mistakes as to not repeat them
When you do you not only change the outcome of your life
it will inevitably help change the lives of others
But the same can be true also
by not learning and growing from your mistakes

___________________________________________________________

Live for today
focus on today
forgetting your yesterday
and if done successfully
your tomorrow will be that much better

___________________________________________________________
Looking through the lenses of gratitude and thankfulness
You can clearly begin to see
the precious gift that life truly is

___________________________________________________________

Faith is the medicine to counter worry

___________________________________________________________

You have to Continually
Build your Children's Confidence Up Daily
Before this world Inevitably
Tries to tear them down

___________________________________________________________
Build up the weak area's in your life
before others get a chance to stack negative bricks
on top of the weak area's in your life
otherwise you will eventually crumble
___________________________________________________________

Everyone has a calling on their life
but they are never able to achieve or fulfill
their calling because they are to busy holding on
to the past
___________________________________________________________

In order to achieve even more progress in your own life
You need to take the progress you expect from others and first apply it to our own

___________________________________________________________

Taking Action is a condition that Must
be met in order to Overcome your issues
Not denying they exist

___________________________________________________________
If you continue living life in the realm
of your past you will never be able to walk
in the newness of your future

___________________________________________________________
The moving inside your heart
not the physical heart the spiritual one
the one behind your heart the soul
The knowing and interacting voice
That's The Spirit , listen to it Obey it
and your life will change

___________________________________________________________

Never get to the point that you become unteachable
There is always something to learn
There is always room to Grow
Never settle for mediocrity

Thought Provoking Truth
___________________________________________________________

When you make excuses it allows you to continue living beneath your potential
___________________________________________________________

If you embrace the truth about yourself no matter how painful,
you will have the first tool you need to break down the wall of denial
that is blocking your path to success
___________________________________________________________

The fool has the greatest potential
to become the wisest if wisdom is finally embraced
___________________________________________________________

Do not trust or believe what a liar says
The only way to trust and believe someone
who naturally tells lies is to wait for the proof
___________________________________________________________

An Excuse is just a imaginary friend
who is used as a scapegoat
so you do not have to take Responsibility for your
Own actions
___________________________________________________________

There is a judge and regardless of the choices that you make good or bad
you will be judged
This judge's name is
Consequence
___________________________________________________________

Pain properly handled
produces Growth
___________________________________________________________
Running away from your problems
only results with you going further and further away
from the solutions
___________________________________________________________
The qualities that you may be lacking
can be found by looking to someone around you that have them
When observed begin to integrate and implement them into your own life
___________________________________________________________

Do not allow self imposed false burdens to destroy your life
Instead allow others to deal with their own
burdens & responsibilities
thus freeing yourself to deal with your own
___________________________________________________________

When you willfully reject Wisdom realize you are choosing to embrace stupidity
___________________________________________________________

Hiding behind a lie
Prolongs and intensifies
the inevitable consequences
when the lie is exposed
___________________________________________________________

You have to fall out of agreement with deception
and fall inline with the Truth
If you plan on meaningful
Growth
___________________________________________________________

The absence of love is a direct result of a choice
___________________________________________________________

Live for today
focus on today forgetting your yesterday
and if done successfully your tomorrow will be that much better
___________________________________________________________

Love does not look back
because it is to busy going forward
___________________________________________________________
Build up the weak area's in your life
before others get a chance to stack negative bricks
on top of the weak area's in your life
otherwise you will eventually crumble
___________________________________________________________
Everyone has a calling on their life
but they are never able to achieve or fulfill their calling
because they are to busy holding on to the past
___________________________________________________________

If you continue living life in the realm of your past
you will never be able to walk in the newness of your future
___________________________________________________________
When does the past leave you alone ?
When the past is confronted head on and not sugar coated
When people decide to no longer allow their past to control them
it looks something like taking control of the past
When you have decided to confront the issue no longer living with self deception
merely thinking you have overcame your past through what ever self medicating illusion
that allows the past to keep coming up
Why would the past leave you alone if it knows it is a weakness ?
Until the weakness has become a strength only than will you have dominion over your past

___________________________________________________________

There is a pattern for failure
and you do not have to travel the road in order to see this truth

___________________________________________________________

The only person you have to prove
your worth to is
Yourself

___________________________________________________________

If you Choose to view the world through the lens of
Chaos & Confusion this is the only thing you will see
If you Choose to view the world in light of Love and Beauty
this is what you will see , it is a state of mind

___________________________________________________________

If you want a better life you have to do the work to create a better life
Just thinking about it without any pursuit of Action is merely Procrastination
___________________________________________________________

Yes there is a season for everything and this to shall pass.
But it still does not negate the suckieness in between

___________________________________________________________

Someone who is always in a state of flux
never moves forward into the new
Always in a transitional stage , yet never completing the trip
___________________________________________________________

One way to see if you are leading
look behind you ...

___________________________________________________________

When you continue to make bad choices
You will continue to reap the bad that comes along with these choices

___________________________________________________________

In the end, if all you want to do is argue
Than it self defeats the purpose of meaningful conversation

___________________________________________________________

One of the enemies of someone trapped in their addiction is
Isolation

___________________________________________________________

An Excuse is just a imaginary friend
who is used as a scapegoat so you do not have to
take Responsibility for your
Own actions
___________________________________________________________

Living in denial is denying progress in your life

___________________________________________________________

Respond to negativity with Love

___________________________________________________________
Fear can be a good thing
when you allow it to drive you to overcome
whatever it is you are fearful of

___________________________________________________________

Love is the Ultimate negativity
repellent

___________________________________________________________
Alcohol is merely an illusion of happiness
sooner or later
the harsh realities of this world
will inevitably have to be dealt with
Drugs & Alcohol are only temporary band aids from reality
___________________________________________________________
Do not settle for less
choose to confront your problems with intentions to overcome them
Throughout this process you will find your true potential

___________________________________________________________

When you recognize your weaknesses
the only thing you can do is go to work to strengthen them
Otherwise you allow the weaknesses to have dominion over you

___________________________________________________________
When you decide to blame others for the bad decisions you make
You are also deciding that you will not take responsibility
for what was within your own control in the first place
Thus never changing future outcomes
___________________________________________________________
Not dealing with your own craziness
only Insures that the craziness you are
Failing to deal with
is going to effectively spread to others

___________________________________________________________
Those who are offended by
Truth are those who refuse
to Acknowledge It

___________________________________________________________

Anyone who speaks horribly about their X wife/husband/girlfriend/boyfriend
The person that they Chose to put in their life
is really just speaking to their poor discernment skills
and conveniently shifting the blame

___________________________________________________________
Every day is an opportunity to Grow or an opportunity to Digress

___________________________________________________________

When you help someone else it should not be burdensome
When it becomes burdensome it is time to back away

___________________________________________________________
Do not allow self imposed false burdens to destroy your life.
Instead allow others to deal with their own
burdens & responsibilities
thus freeing yourself to deal with your own

___________________________________________________________

When others intend to slander your good name
Continue to stand upright giving them nothing
but their own Stupidity to cling to

___________________________________________________________

Doing what is Right while others insists on doing wrong
will ultimately show others that they do Not have to follow the crowds
Someone has to lead why shouldn't be YOU ?

___________________________________________________________
Do not change who you are to appease anyone
If they do not except you for who you are
than realize that this amounts to being their loss and your gain

___________________________________________________________
Hiding behind a lie
Prolongs and intensifies
the inevitable consequences
when the lie is exposed

___________________________________________________________

How you handle life when it brings you pain will produce two results
Pain will show you who you really are
and pain will most definitely show you who you are not

___________________________________________________________
When you do Not take the steps necessary
to protect yourself from yourself
you will continue the insanity of living the same way
expecting a different result

___________________________________________________________
Just because someone is smiling on the outside
Does not ensure that their heart is also

___________________________________________________________
True love is Unconditional
to love in spite of
When love is conditional
than you know the truth
It was never love to begin with
___________________________________________________________
Someone who has been sexually abused
is reduced to a life long mental battle
in which those who have not been exposed to such extreme emotion
will never be able to grasp

___________________________________________________________

The damage done to yourself by holding onto things
you know you should be letting go of
does nothing but stunt your progress in All areas of your life
Is it worth it ? It's time to DO

___________________________________________________________

The absence of love is a direct result of a choice

___________________________________________________________

Love does not look back
because it is to busy going forward
___________________________________________________________
When you find yourself judging others all you are truly doing is exalting self
and ignoring your own shortcomings

___________________________________________________________
Some people act fake because they have no clue
what it means to be real
because they do not know who they are

___________________________________________________________
You have to start somewhere
You have to First acknowledge your issues
and realize you have them
Before you can tackle them
Otherwise it is if they do not exist
Even though they do

___________________________________________________________

The great things about bad decisions
is that at any given moment at any given time
you can Choose to Stop making them

___________________________________________________________

Satan always shows you the party
but never reveals the hangover and the consequences
that come after the party
___________________________________________________________
The reason I am so passionate about Christ
is because I know how radically he can change a life
how radically he changed my life
With all that you see throughout creation
you have to know there is something bigger than yourself
Seek after Christ and you will indeed find and be radically changed

If you would like to look at these Daily
here is the link to do so LIKE THE PAGE

Thought Provoking Truth
___________________________________________________________

The true condition of a persons heart
is not revealed when things are going good , the true condition of a persons heart is on display before all when thing's are going horribly wrong.
___________________________________________________________
Living inside the realm of deceit and denial
change can Not and will Not occur , resulting in more of the shame
Living within the realm of Truth and Honesty
is the Only way one can achieve effective and meaningful
Change
___________________________________________________________
People that live in denial ,do not want to do the work
that it takes to walk and live in the truth about themselves
___________________________________________________________

If you choose to live in deception
than what is produced from this lifestyle
will never be fruitful

___________________________________________________________
When you choose to live in
and walk in truth
not just half truths
The fruit that you desire
will be manifested

___________________________________________________________

The true nature of a person
masked behind a phoney facade
will inevitably pop out from behind the mask given enough time

___________________________________________________________

Pain will either cause you to
Learn and Grow
Or pain will cause you to
Retreat In Defeat

___________________________________________________________
Do not ignore what you know
to be True
If you do
It will always cause regret

___________________________________________________________

When you have pain in you
than you will inevitably cause pain in other people
Be aware of what the lack of joy
can do in your life as well as in the life of others

___________________________________________________________
Needy people lack the Will to Overcome
and to realize their own
Potential
___________________________________________________________

Motivation must first come from within
because you matter
___________________________________________________________
Drunkenness erodes the wall of restraint
allowing the truth to flow freely from the lips
___________________________________________________________

Words that injure can never be returned to the lips

___________________________________________________________
You must be a teacher of Self
Before you venture out to teach others
___________________________________________________________
Live life Working on killing your convictions
rather than allowing your convictions to kill you

___________________________________________________________

Presenting your lie to the world for so long
will eventually lead to you living the lie
convincingly enough to believe it yourself
___________________________________________________________
People that do not realize how valuable they are
will always settle for less
While the people that do realize their value will always have more
___________________________________________________________
Do not let friends, family or anyone else make you feel guilty
for living out your potential
because they Refuse to live out their own
___________________________________________________________
Life is not a profile
Life is real deep and profound
Life is rapidly being reduced to a profile
If completed
Life will no longer be real deep and profound
Life will just be fake

___________________________________________________________

Problems arise when we put a value on people
according to our own standard in which none of us
are even qualified to judge

___________________________________________________________

Do not allow people to have a false view of your value
A value that is based in perceptions
Instead may your value be found in the Reality
in which you live
Based on Truth and Not a facade

___________________________________________________________

Relationships we form under false pretenses are not real relationships at all
because in order to have a real meaningful relationship
it must be built on truth and honesty
Not falsehoods, sooner later the truth about one another will be revealed

___________________________________________________________

Living to learn is to blame
for the infinite regress we see today
We should be Learning in order that we might live

___________________________________________________________

If you know and embrace the Truth
you will not Settle for the lie

___________________________________________________________
There is only one thing that gets accomplished
being lazy & that is
Nothing

___________________________________________________________
You are to talented to settle for the nothing
you are currently accomplishing in your life
___________________________________________________________
The voice with the sweetest tones
If their heart is bent on evil
Their lying lips will eventually be Exposed

___________________________________________________________
If Everything is a priority
End the end nothing gets accomplished
___________________________________________________________
When someone hates Truth they will
Always end up on the other side of Truth
and that is DENIAL

___________________________________________________________

If you continue rowing away from your responsibilities
You will continue to row straight into them again again until you except them and take them up

___________________________________________________________
When you choose the wrong person to place in your life and they turn out to be evil
when the evil is removed from your life do not ever go back to it.

___________________________________________________________

Holding onto secrets is like
holding onto a sinking ship ,eventually it will pull you under
the question is will you be on it or off of it when it goes under?
