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 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 ???

___________________________________________________________

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

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


___________________________________________________________

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

___________________________________________________________

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

___________________________________________________________

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
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

___________________________________________________________
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

___________________________________________________________

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

___________________________________________________________

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
