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 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

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

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.

True peace ,joy and

There is only ONE place to go
When things are to far gone for me to grasp

Not only that he will empower me to live up to that standard
No question about it

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

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


____________________________________________________________

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
