Thought Provoking Truth
___________________________________________________________

Wisdom is precious & wisdom is to be shared
so others may grow in ways that would not be possible otherwise
How much wisdom are you concealing from the world?

___________________________________________________________

Do your best to show love today to the people around you
The only example of love someone see's today could be YOU

___________________________________________________________

When you have been abused and do not forgive
you abuse yourself repeatedly by not forgiving
allowing the abuser to continue to abuse you every time you bring up the anger and bitterness
Realize you have chosen to hold on to Unforgiveness keeping you bound
You hold the key to the prison you are in ,the key of forgiveness will unlock the cell

___________________________________________________________

The debt we think people owe us can be repaid by forgiving them
We have the power to cancel others debt with forgiveness
setting us free of the stress and anger of Unforgiveness
___________________________________________________________
It is Not necessary to understand why something has happen to us
in order to forgive
There are things we will never understand why they have happen to us
so there is no reason to let unforgiveness keep us bound for the rest of our life
Forgive and be set FREE

___________________________________________________________

If you are doing more work on Someone Else's life than your own
realize that this great Distraction is keeping you
from becoming all that you were created to be
and this tactic is working flawlessly
___________________________________________________________
If you put yourself in position to sin
you are going to inevitably sin
That's not on God that's on YOU
What are you Doing to keep you from the shame cycles?
Your actions will tell the Truth about how serious you are about truly Overcoming
Otherwise you are in self denial and the cycles continue
___________________________________________________________


When you notice someone is down
it should be you who picks them up
There is a Reason You were the one that noticed
If you do not lift them up
you will never no the reason
Be the Change

___________________________________________________________


We are called to missions
Not just in other countries
The Kingdom of God is within us
and where we go he is right there with us
Missions is a very misunderstood thing
All who are in Christ are missionaries
___________________________________________________________

What are you Doing to change the harmful habits
that have been continuously revealed to you through the same tired shameful cycles?
If the Only thing you are Doing is Ignoring them
Expect nothing more than more of the Shame

___________________________________________________________

What are you being called to say yes to?
What Excuses are you using that are hindering your progress?
Excuses keep you from GROWING

___________________________________________________________

Be a blessing in someone's life today
instead of always asking for one
Be the difference in someone's life now not later
Be the Change
___________________________________________________________

You must understand when you are dissatisfied with sin
and are working on your sin
and you are broken over your sin
but you are just not strong enough Yet to Overcome
In this place is where you will find Abounding Grace

___________________________________________________________

Most of the time
the reason we have not stopped our addictive behaviors
is because deep down we are not Willing to give it up
When we are Truly Honest with ourselves of this Truth
we will put fourth the Real enough Effort Necessary to Overcome
___________________________________________________________

Those who understand grace and forgiveness
are able to show grace and forgiveness
because they realize their own
Necessity for grace and forgiveness Daily
___________________________________________________________


If you are not Willing to ask for help
you will not be able to except help
Only those who want help will Utilize help
___________________________________________________________

There are some people that function in chaos
and are totally oblivious to the fact
that it is chaos because
that is all they have ever known
When outside the realm of chaos and confusion
they feel the need to create it
Everyone has a story, are you helping or hurting?
___________________________________________________________

It is not the change itself that is fearful
It is the anticipation of the change that is
When change is Finally Achieved
Change is Embraced
Embrace the in between and you can enjoy the whole
Journey
___________________________________________________________

By not forgiving you are hindering your growth
as a person and you are hindering your relationship
with others
Why would you give someone that much power ?

___________________________________________________________

You can forgive people
but do not expect their sorry to be real
until you see actual change an actual turning away from the same behavior
When they show the fruit of repentance
than and only than may you see the evidence and believe

___________________________________________________________

Allow others actions to be their own judge
There is no need to judge a person
In fact , it is their actions that will Expose themselves

___________________________________________________________

Never be satisfied where you are at because
there is Always something to learn and grow in one or more area's of your life
If you are not learning and growing you are not looking
or sadly ignoring the area's that have already been revealed

___________________________________________________________

Your actions good or bad
Usually have a profound effect
on more than one person
These actions can effect entire generations
Be mindful of this Truth
Think before you act

___________________________________________________________

When you do hurtful things
It almost never effects one person

___________________________________________________________

The sincerity of a person who is sorry for having wronged you
Is coupled with the Actions and Evidence of
Not being a repeat offender
___________________________________________________________


If other people's failed responsibilities have hindered you personally in your life
do not let these failed reresponsibility define you
If you do allow Unforgiveness to rule your heart
realize you are allowing their failed responsibilities to define you
Do not allow such power over you
Forgive & OVERCOME

___________________________________________________________
You have to understand we are All sinners
and fall short of the Glory of God
Knowing this Truth,realize people are sinners
JUST LIKE YOU ARE
This alone should make it easier
to forgive & show grace

___________________________________________________________

Imagine the time and energy you could be saving
if you released YOURSELF from Not forgiving
Not to mention the
anger, bitterness, & hostility
it takes to hold onto
Unforgiveness. In the end
it Cost You more not to forgive than to forgive

___________________________________________________________

Do not try to be like anything or anyone
other than who you where created to be
which is Authentic
Otherwise you become like the masses
and that is
being FAKE
___________________________________________________________

While it is great to have someone pushing you
to be all you can be
You need to get to the point in your life
where you develop enough confidence
To be all you can be with or without the push
because there will be times when there will be no one there to push you
___________________________________________________________

Notice someone today
Give of yourself today
Be YOU
be the change

___________________________________________________________

The things you are seriously working on today
Are preparation for tomorrow's future
If you are working on Nothing today
Than the future will always look bleak
Your future will continue to bring you Nothing

___________________________________________________________

Christians live out their faith
Religious people make a mockery
Of theirs

___________________________________________________________

Keeping secrets is a internal slow death
Relinquishing them allows the struggling soul from within
to become untangled and free
___________________________________________________________

Do not just listen to the word and not obey what is revealed to you or you are wasting your time
and God's time
Not only that you are setting up a deceitful pattern
to follow
You are creating a false God in your mind
by reading truth and than doing something other than what was revealed
you are compromising the word of God
for your own will thus creating a false God
This is not the God of the bible
it is the God of your own creation
___________________________________________________________

The word of God should make your flesh squirm
and make you uncomfortable , if it does not you are probably trying to water it down
The word of God should pierce you
right down to your bone and marrow
because it is sharper than a double edge sword
and it needs to be in order to separate
the flesh from The Spirit
___________________________________________________________

Wise counsel can save you and others
from battles you should of never had to fight
in the first place
Wise counsel does not consist of
the one giving the counsel to agree with you
Wise counsel is to give you a perspective
you can not or would not of seen or understood
___________________________________________________________
Words can provide comfort to the soul
or
Words can provide death to the soul
Be mindful of what you say and how you say it

Thought Provoking Truth
___________________________________________________________



Do not let your past chew your future to pieces
Allowing your past to live in your future
Do not even allow your yesterday to infiltrate your today
Put yesterday to death and receive life's gift of today

___________________________________________________________

Do not ask of others opinions
Only to justify you your conviction
You already know the truth in your heart
Do not compromise it a way

___________________________________________________________

Make amends as soon as possible
because the longer you do not make amends
the more people you will effect negatively
___________________________________________________________

You must humble yourself before The Lord God
Thus enabling him to bring fourth his mercy and grace
into your life
After you receive this glorious gift
You must turn around and extend it to others

___________________________________________________________

Do not be the cause of your own madness
by not relinquishing your past

___________________________________________________________

Emphatic disobedience will heap upon yourself
consequences of a destructive nature
On the other hand emphatic obedience
will bring great blessing into your midst
___________________________________________________________

Do not run from the Truth run Towards the Truth
because Truth is where your Healing lies
Truth is where your Deliverance lies
Truth is where you will Find the Necessities to Overcome
___________________________________________________________

The Seriousness of you Commitment to Overcoming
your addictions will be Seen by your Actions
Not the lack of

___________________________________________________________

In order to Overcome your past
You Must be Honest with your present
Than you can begin to live for your future
___________________________________________________________

Refuse to live in prison because of yesterday
do not allow others to bring it into your today
___________________________________________________________

Never be satisfied with where you are
Because the things you except as satisfactory
will in time become mediocre and you will become stagnant
Therefore always be Willing to Learn & Grow

___________________________________________________________

When it comes to ourselves
we understand and almost expect grace on very intimate levels
but when it comes time to show and extend grace
we act as if we are completely ignorant on the matter

___________________________________________________________

Refuse to be average in all things
Being the example for those who do not understand
Excellence

___________________________________________________________

While dwelling on yesterdays failures
You miss the opportunities
of Today's
Blessings
___________________________________________________________

If you lie about who you are
You do not know or understand
Who you are in the first place

___________________________________________________________
A man must have accountability
without it he will not stand upright
for very long

___________________________________________________________

Embrace who you really are
Do not put on a phoney facade
By putting on the mask of falsehood
you deny and begin to lose
who you were created to be

___________________________________________________________

Living a lie is living in denial of the truth
Engage truth and live according to it
Shedding the false facade
that enables the lie to continue
___________________________________________________________

Apply the life lessons from yesterday to your today
so you do not end up repeating them
___________________________________________________________

Some people do not want to even heal
they would rather wallow in self pity
and admittedly I have been one of these people
You have to come to a point and realize
that keeping a victim mentality
will only keep you bound in victim chains
As adults we have a Choice to control our destiny
and become victorious instead of a victim
___________________________________________________________

Just because you disagree with an opinion
Does not mean the opinion should not be expressed

___________________________________________________________

The things you are seriously working on today
Are preparation for tomorrow's future
If you are working on Nothing today
Than the future will always look bleak
Your future will continue to bring you Nothing

___________________________________________________________

Those who constantly dwell on their pain
will be ruled by it
Those who set their mind to Overcome their pain
even in the midst of it
Will eventually Overcome
and take dominion over their pain

___________________________________________________________

While becoming a victim of someone Else's choosing
was Not a choice
Staying a victim is however a Choice

___________________________________________________________

As you go through this life
Are you lighting the way
for those who are stumbling through the darkness ?
Or are you turning the lights out along the way ?

___________________________________________________________

At the very end of self
Is the beginning of Christ
Letting go of self
and relinquishing self unto Him
will enable Christ to work fully in your life
The very power that raised Christ is within you
If you are not utilizing it that is on you
___________________________________________________________

When you reach the point that you think
you no longer have to listen to what someone is teaching
because you think you know it all already
that is the time you will miss yet another opportunity
to Grow

___________________________________________________________

The difference between those that make it
and those who don't
Are Excuses
___________________________________________________________

Are you building your
nothing with Excuses ?
Or are you building your
Something with Action ?

___________________________________________________________

Bring your nothing
for we truly have nothing
To give
and God will turn into More
than you could ever imagine

___________________________________________________________

Conviction comes from Christ
Condemnation comes from Satan
Conviction aides in your Growth
Condemnation Destroys your growth
___________________________________________________________

Realize when you allow
Wisdom & Knowledge
to be Lost
It falls on your own shoulders
For not utilizing it when it was given

___________________________________________________________

Those who Choose to wallow in self pity
are usually the first to be offended by Truth
spoken to them
These people would rather stay in a victim state of mind
Just so they will Not have to Do the WORK
it takes to Overcome

___________________________________________________________

You need to realize God is not going to speak to man
as he did before Christ
No burning bushes no moving clouds or thunderous voice
from heaven
He is dwelling inside you in the form
Of The Holy Spirit and he speaks to you Constantly

___________________________________________________________
Listen to the instruction
the holy spirit reveals
All of the answers to your direction can be found by
Simply listening and obeying the prompting of the holy spirit
You will suffer harm one way or another by not obeying
Some call it your conscience
Some say something told me
Simply put this is the spirit of God leading
The question is Are you following or ignoring?
The answer will be found in your obedience or lack of
___________________________________________________________

In order to Grow
Pay close Attenton to the things
that Need to Go
Than Remove the Hindrances
Only than will you be able to Grow

___________________________________________________________
Everything done in the dark
is going to come into the light
It will come into the light
through your actions
through your demeanor through your character
___________________________________________________________

Stop taking inventory of others
Look inside yourself and take a serious inventory
of what needs to change
The time and effort you are putting towards
trying to "fix" others
is nothing more than a distraction
from moving your own mountains out of your own life
___________________________________________________________

Be mindful of your thoughts
Always be ready to cast down and out
thoughts that will lead to unhealthy thinking
Think about what you are thinking about
so you can test whether it should stay or go
After all it is a choice

____________________________________________________________

Learn to love yourself
First and foremost
Only than will you be able
Fill yourself with enough love to share it properly with
Others

___________________________________________________________

Just because you are mad or angry
does not give you the Excuse to
Compromise Truth
___________________________________________________________

If you are Serious about Growth
you Must have
Accountability
Without accountability you are more suspect
to fall back into the same failed mentality
Becoming nothing more than a repeat offender

___________________________________________________________

You can either Choose to handle
Your addictions or your addictions will
Continue to Handle YOU
and all of the others you are letting them effect

___________________________________________________________

You can not go out and give what you do not have
First get yourself filled up with the Spirit of God
and than go out into the world and breath it out
Reflecting the very nature of Christ

___________________________________________________________

All of my worth can only be found in Christ
for all that I was belongs to him
and everything thing I am today is because of
Christ Jesus

___________________________________________________________

Through suffering it reduces us to nothing
Enabling us to hear from God clearly
Because through suffering
We are willing to hear from God

___________________________________________________________

Conviction is God's subtle voice reminding us
that
What we are doing is Not working
Allow conviction to bring about a turning away from
What is in fact sin thus triggering sanctification
Enabling
Conformity to the imagine of Christ
Which produces fruit in your life

___________________________________________________________

Having a form of Godliness and not embracing the power afforded to you
by living the Christian life In truth
only enables you to live a lie and you will always
come up short instead of living in the fullness
that comes with living the life not living the lie

___________________________________________________________
To overcome the flesh
you must build your spiritual life
to such heights
What your flesh is to weak to overcome
the spirit can

Thought Provoking Truth


___________________________________________________________

There is a distinction between
Who you are
and what you are
When you can figure out
how to merge the two
Than you can decide
who you want be


___________________________________________________________

When we do not seek the counsel of the wise
or acknowledge God in All of his ways
than we are left with our own limited understanding
Exchanging the unlimitedness of God
for the limitedness of our thinking
Do not exchanged truth for lies

___________________________________________________________

Why would you hold onto the 10 percent
of the things you think that are going to make you temporarily happy
while sacrificing the 90 percent
of the peace joy and contentment God has for you ?

___________________________________________________________

Satan promises green & lush pasture
with plentiful land in exchange for sin
But after the sin
All you find is dry desert with famished land

___________________________________________________________

People do not need to hear a sermon all the time.
They need to see the sermon demonstrated by you.

___________________________________________________________

Time spent complaining
is time that should of been spent Conquering
Time spent living in fear
Is time that should of been spent Fighting
Time spent wondering why things are still the same
is time that should have been spent Working

___________________________________________________________

People say thing's that are uninformed and make mistakes.
That being said , everyone deserves the chance to learn and grow
and become informed so that mistakes can be minimized in the future

___________________________________________________________

Teenager's want "freedom"
so bad
They have convinced themselves
that they have somehow magically obtained it already
While actually still living at home

___________________________________________________________

People are products of their childhood
Having to react to the environment they lived in
As adults you can control not only how you react
But you have a choice of the environment you
place yourself in
So you are without Excuse to Change

___________________________________________________________

When a person lies
It should do something to the soul
When it does nothing
It is only evidence that integrity & character
Mean Nothing

___________________________________________________________

More people despise
Truth & enjoy compromise
The sad reality is
The enjoyment of compromise is temporary
While walking and living inside the realm of Truth is lasting

___________________________________________________________

When you deny Truth
You are essentially denying the benefits that come with it
You are Willfully Choosing and Accepting the Consequences of its denial

___________________________________________________________

The good that comes from being hurt by others
Is now you are qualified
to help others not to be

___________________________________________________________
To deny Truth is Self
Defeat

___________________________________________________________

When you reject Wisdom & Truth
For Compromise & Deceit
You become entangled & ensnared
in your own Stupidity
This is called self deceit & defeat

___________________________________________________________

Those that pause and begin looking for an attaboy
will be passed by the person
still Striving and Working on perfection

___________________________________________________________

Overcoming the struggle pain and heartache
This life can and will bring
Only to become stronger
It just seems as if
these where all meant to go together

___________________________________________________________

To become Great
Suffering is a
Prerequisite

___________________________________________________________

Everyone has a facade and when you allow others
to see past this facade
you allow others to see the real you
This allows people a chance to realize
we all have a lot more in common
than one might think

___________________________________________________________

There is a downfall to being a committed person
although you are committed to good things
problem is your probably equally as committed
to some of the bad things
___________________________________________________________

Addicts are master manipulators
but mainly masters at manipulating self
into denial

___________________________________________________________

There is a distance within myself from the reality
From being abused
The closer I get to the reality
I feel as broken as shattered glass
fragments scattered
The more distance I put between this reality
It is as if I become whole and complete

___________________________________________________________

I believe God tries to get your attention always beckoning you prodding you calling you
Are you listening & hearing ?
Many are called and do not answer the call
If you do not answer him you are missing out on your predetermined destiny
and settling for a life of your own predetermined destructiveness

___________________________________________________________

You will notice actual change within yourself
when you begin to handle adversity as it comes along
Instead of being handled by adversity

Thought Provoking Truth


___________________________________________________________


Take on this attitude
You can either stay where you are at
and suffer or you can do the work
while suffering through with the end result
of being in a better place
Staying the same is not optional
if you are going to suffer it might as well be for progress

___________________________________________________________


Just think of all that could be accomplished
instead of complaining & making
Excuses
Opportunities to Improve
are squandered
By complaining & Excuses


___________________________________________________________

Do not allow people to drag you back down to being a victim
stay walking in victory
thus allowing them a chance to join you


___________________________________________________________

Your Commitment to Truly
Change
Will be Plainly Seen
by and through
Your Actions


___________________________________________________________

If you are not hungering and thirsting for righteousness
in order to be filled
Than you will be hungering and thirsting for self
Never able to achieve fulfillment


___________________________________________________________


When we start breaking free from our chaos
We have a tendency to want to either create new
chaos or run back to the old
Only because that was all we ever knew
Resist it and you will actually be able to live
in the realm of sanity


___________________________________________________________

One Must be
Proactive in order to Overcome
Not
Inactive


___________________________________________________________


Be selfless & serve
Not selfish & absorbed


___________________________________________________________

Realize out of the billions of people on this earth
There is only one YOU
No one can do what you were created to do
Just be YOU


___________________________________________________________

It is not about the distance
traveled in life
It is more about
How
You traveled
That matters


___________________________________________________________

Forgive and be freed
from the chains in which
You
Hold the keys to


___________________________________________________________

Gather strength not just for self
but to serve later
Because serving self is destructive
Serving others is what we are called to do

___________________________________________________________

With Resentment you are being destroyed from the inside
and it manifest itself on the outside


___________________________________________________________


Realize You have do have dominion over your thoughts
That is unless your thoughts have dominion over you
Thus manifesting your image of yourself in a negative way
Having dominion over your thoughts will also manifest
Outwardly expressing a great love for not only yourself but
Others as well


___________________________________________________________


You want what others have
Not satisfied with what you do have
So you want their life in exchange for yours
Not Willing to put in the Work it takes to obtain it
Strange ain't it ?
Instead of wanting what others have
Work what you do have and maybe you'll go further than
the very people you envy



___________________________________________________________


Everyone is a hypocrite in one way or another
Instead of acting or portraying as if you are not
Realize we are all in the same boat none better than the other
But what should separate us are those who are seeking & working
diligently to be less of a hypocrite



___________________________________________________________

Stop dancing with your demons
Confront them


___________________________________________________________

If being Real instead of fake
causes people not to like me than
real I must be

___________________________________________________________

Do not love like the world does
The worlds way of love involves Lying & telling you
what you want to hear
Real love tells the Truth



___________________________________________________________


Grace is not for you to wallow in sin in the slop of it all.
Grace is given un to thee while one is weak in their faith weak in their walk and yet
strengthening and conditioning themselves to one day to be strong enough in their faith
and strong enough in their walk to live in the power of Christ
through the renewing of their mind and under the direction leading and guidance of the holy spirit.
Grace is a magnificent and glorious gift to those who call on the name of Jesus Christ Lord of All.
Grace will sustain anyone willing to work out their salvation with fear and trembling.
Grace after working it's full measure eventually leads to Overcoming.




___________________________________________________________

When our interest of self is exchanged
for the interest of Christ
We will begin to understand
that Satan manipulates us with self-interest
above the principals of God
And we shall fall Every time when this is the case
And deservedly so thus making self-interest our God
Exalt Christ not self



___________________________________________________________


The only way to obey the teachings of Christ
Is to First and foremost Love God
To Love God is to Love Christ
In doing so you will want to be obedient
Without The Love for them both you will always
Be chasing the unobtainable



___________________________________________________________

It is a Daily battle to continuously
consciously pick up your cross
and lay down selfishness and follow Christ


___________________________________________________________

Those who truly have a heart for God
want to bring before him all of their weaknesses
sin failures and all the filthy mess that lies within themselves
in order for them to to be strengthened
healed and delivered from them. Bringing into the light
the things that are of the dark to be plainly seen
by men in order that the glory of god may be revealed through such honesty.

___________________________________________________________



The hope found In Christ
Is not a matter of if but when
Worldly hope is wishful thinking
Hope in Christ is a Knowing
___________________________________________________________

When we get to the end of self as far as self can take us
is when and where
we ultimately find God
and the hardest part after allowing him in
is the fact he has always been there
the whole time calling us and
beckoning us to come


___________________________________________________________

The path to power is through obedience
I have found the closer that I draw nearer to God
and walk in obedience
the more power I receive
I fall yes but always have the power to get back up
Where as before I would just stay down



___________________________________________________________

Just as an addict might use anabuse in order to to help them not use
Once saved the holy spirit takes on the form of anabuse
in the sense the spirit convicts in order to up lift
If you are not ready to stop being an addict
nothing can be said or done to make you change
the only way you are going to change is if you want to change
Much like being saved is a choice one has to make
Recovery class church service bible study at church is my medicine to help me not use again
Being sober is always an option there is always the option to drink or use but knowing it is always going to end terrifyingly awful helps keep me sober
The little strength we do have is all we will have because we must rely on the strength Found in Christ in order to truly overcome


___________________________________________________________

Every trial situation and circumstance
Every refinement is necessary
It is nothing more than the path leading us
Into perfection
Leading us Home



___________________________________________________________

The word of God is universal and yet personal
You can Not put God's word in a box
It has the Power to mean so many things
to each individual because
It needs to be able to meet each person
right where they are in their life
As one grows in faith and knowledge
and obedience In the word of God
It will become even more transcendent
and take the individual deeper and deeper
into the consciousness of the spiritual realm
where God dwells where wisdom and knowledge are
limitless without bounds
The word of God is the most profound book
on the entire planet
Bringing fourth all one needs
to unlock the mystery within themselves
As well as the mystery of the meaning and purpose of life revealed with such thought provoking essence
to last all of your years of life



___________________________________________________________

In our sufferings In all circumstances and situations
in this life God is to be found there
somewhere some how some way
He will conform us one way or another for his glory
The faster we get on board with his plan
the more he will be able to use us to glorify him
He will conform us willingly or unwillingly
it is because we choose most of the time to go unwillingly we suffer so much


___________________________________________________________

There is nothing more beutiful than teaching
the word of God
Sharing with others the goodness of the Gospel


___________________________________________________________

Get out of your feelings
It is not about your feelings
However it is about God's Promises

Thought Provoking Truth


___________________________________________________________



The church building you attend
should be the one place that broken people can come for healing
NOT a place to come to be broken

___________________________________________________________

In order to achieve even more progress in your own life
You need to take the progress you expect from others\
and first apply it to our own
___________________________________________________________

We tend to see grace so clearly when we find ourselves in need of grace
and yet so blind when it comes to others
in need of grace this undeserving pardon

___________________________________________________________

Grace should invoke thankfulness and a true humility
and a repentant heart
Not a continual thirst for more of the very thing
grace was given to cover
___________________________________________________________

To live for Christ is to put to death self
Reaching for new levels of morality
is Not what it means to be Christian
Being Christian Is an inward circumcision of your inner being
A continuous transformation of your character
the person you are in the dark not the person you present to the light
___________________________________________________________

You attend a building an institution not a church
YOU are The Church
You bring church to the building

___________________________________________________________

If you continue living life in the realm of your past
you will never be able to walk in the newness
of your future

___________________________________________________________
Your past includes your yesterday
therefore put it behind you and leave it there
so that you can properly focus on your future

___________________________________________________________

Taking Action is a condition that
Must be met in order to Overcome your issues
Not denying they exist

___________________________________________________________

False Christianity does not exists
Either your saved or not
Either a conversion happened or it did not
It is an Impossibility not to change
when you have the holy spirit PERIOD !!
___________________________________________________________

Do not make excuses
engage the battles that life throws at you
___________________________________________________________

Being a Christian without submission
to Christ
is not Christianity at all
It's Self Deception
___________________________________________________________
Is Christ the object
of your affection ?
Or is it the objects
that have your affection ?

___________________________________________________________

If you believe everyone should believe what you believe
and expect people to agree with everything that flows out your mouth
you are either out of touch with reality
or delusional

___________________________________________________________

Atheist sure do spend a lot of time talking about a God
that supposedly does not exists....
Hmmmm...

___________________________________________________________

Put into practice the lessons that you have learned
through life's struggles
or you will be a repeat offender

___________________________________________________________

Never get to the point that you become unteachable
There is always something to learn
There is always room to Grow
Never settle for mediocrity

___________________________________________________________

Do not take someone at there word simply by trusting
You will see the trueness of the word that was spoken
when the obligation is met
Than you will see if their word's had the integrity
in which they wanted you to believe
___________________________________________________________

The moving inside your heart not the physical heart
the spiritual one the one behind your heart the soul
The knowing and interacting voice
Thats The Spirit , listen to it Obey it
and your life will change

___________________________________________________________

Those who are stuck in their past
are just like someone running up a hill
looking backwards Never able to gain proper ground

___________________________________________________________
When you find yourself judging others
all you are truly doing is exalting self
and ignoring your own shortcomings

___________________________________________________________
Some people act fake because they have no clue
what it means to be real
because they do not know who they are

___________________________________________________________
When you try to help those
who's condition is worst off than your own
recognize that they have the ability to
pull you under and leave you in a worst condition
than you were before the encounter

___________________________________________________________

Those who hate rules are typically
those who do not know how to follow them

___________________________________________________________

Never allow another person to make you feel guilty
because you have chosen to better yourself
and make progress in your life
They will ultimately need to know it can be done
and you just might be their only road-map

___________________________________________________________
When Chaos comes towards you
Turn the opposite direction
Do not engage chaos or you will be
Entangled in the Madness

___________________________________________________________
You have to start somewhere
You have to First acknowledge your issues
and realize you have them
Before you can tackle them
Otherwise it is if they do not exist
Even though they do

___________________________________________________________

Stop giving anything to those excepting
if they complain about everything

___________________________________________________________

The great things about bad decisions
is that at any given moment at any given time
you can Choose to Stop making them

___________________________________________________________

The great things about bad decisions
is that at any given moment at any given time
you can Choose to Stop making them

___________________________________________________________

Forgiveness allows us to be free of things we can not change excepting the things that we can
We can choose to forgive because if we do not
we will never be able to live the abundant future
we can live by doing so
No longer bound by the past but excepting
that we can create a better future by leaving those things which we have no control over anymore
___________________________________________________________

Those who live life with intentions to disrupt others lives
only do so because of the environment in which they where raised
Once recognized it is no longer an excuse
to go on doing so
___________________________________________________________

The proverbs are a road map for this life
of those who have traveled the road before you
with Much Success
You would be wise to listen
and follow in the foot steps

___________________________________________________________

The fact is people who have injured you
or have wronged you have a type of suffering
unto themselves
and forgiveness allows you to be free
___________________________________________________________
Usually the loudest person and most boisterous person
is the most broken because of a deceptive spirit
They have created a facade and live behind it
instead of confessing their brokenness in order to receive the help they need
___________________________________________________________

When you forgive
Do not expect the changing of the heart
In the person you forgive
You should however have a change within
Your own

___________________________________________________________

Do Not hide from pain anymore
acknowledge it
and deal with it confront it
This is the only way to handle pain
When you bury,ignore or run from pain
it only makes it worst

___________________________________________________________
Never let pride keep you from asking for help
or for anything for that matter
Pride shackles you to a lie

___________________________________________________________

Do not engage the conversation
when someone is spewing hurtful words
Or you will be reaping along with what is sown

___________________________________________________________
Your opinion about a person can be changed
With just a few unkindly words spoken
with intent to damage another soul
Sooner or later the true condition
of the heart will be Exposed
for who they are Not
___________________________________________________________

We do not have the right to judge anyone
We should love in place of judgement

___________________________________________________________
Fear is a false illusion
Your mind has created
Blocking you from greatness
Remove the fear and engage the path
that leads to your full potential

___________________________________________________________

If your not used to having money
and now it has become a regularity
Learn to manage & steward it faithfully
before you make hasty decisions
Because the money can go as quickly as it came
___________________________________________________________
Continue to walk in integrity
Regardless if those around
you insist on walking shamelessly

___________________________________________________________

Think about the gossip circle you indulge in
Now think about the kind of of things
that are being said about YOU
when your not in said circle
Ironic isn't it
___________________________________________________________

If our lives where not so "busy"
We would recognize the love we have
for others the deep profound love
But sadly it takes death to understand this
Truth is it doesn't have to be that way
___________________________________________________________
Stop walking towards Chaos
When you see Chaos walk Away from it
If Chaos tries to follow you run from it
When you walk away from Chaos
You walk towards PEACE
It's a CHOICE

___________________________________________________________
Pride refuses to ask for help
Whereas Humility will not only ask for help
but humility will listen and apply the wisdom
and instruction given
___________________________________________________________

Wisdom & Foolishness
have no business mingling together
Wisdom enacted keeps foolishness at bay
___________________________________________________________
While living a life trying to please others
you will find yourself living out side of your own character
You're not being who God created you to be
___________________________________________________________

Do not let other peoples hatred
Blind you and keep you from going
Where you need to be going

___________________________________________________________

Your desires are
Not to define you
Your desires and passions are Not
to direct your path
Your desires are Not your
Identity


___________________________________________________________


Do not try to reason with the unreasonable
The time and efforts can be spent
more productively

___________________________________________________________

You cannot love someone if you do not first
and foremost love yourself
The little bit of love that you might have for yourself will be very evident in the way you presented to others
