A REMINDER: A TRUTH. VICTORY


“Listen, my beloved brethren: Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him?” (James 2:5 NKJV)

Money.Cars.Fame.
Three out of three is ok but add pride and it’s a shame.
To trust in man is to trust in trial.
To trust in The Truth means you trust in the Messiah.
Heavy is the head that wears the crown,
The castle seemed so much better when somebody else was around.
Now the halls of your hearts kingdom only ring with “I’m lying”.
Now you sit alone in your palace frustrated and crying.
Success beyond days is assured by Gods truth, by His Word, His reminder.
He will find your destiny no matter how hard you hide her.
Lucifer they say means the bright one, or even the morning star.
How long will you be unaware that it’s destruction and dark where he’s led you this far?
Chaff is dry and worthless. Fuel to flame.
God is the fire, spreading furiously through the place you now try to sustain.
He is our King, our Refuge and His is the Kingdom.
We are the lost, the hypocrite, the poor innocent victim.
Let Him do what He intends to do anyway.
To Love you through your best, worst, and even your most defeating day.
To Fight against God Is to fight against air.
How come you curse that which keeps you breathing there?
A REMINDER: GOD IS IN CONTROL,
A TRUTH: JESUS PAID OUR DEBT
WHEN HE COMMENDED HIS SOUL
Please just give yourself a shot at what He gives freely.
Mercy, a meaning, guaranteed VICTORY

The Mirage


“There is desirable treasure, and oil in the dwelling of the wise, but the foolish man squanders it.” – Proverbs 21:20

What is it we see in the desert of life? What is the water we thirst for when we are in a spiritual drought? Often times we seek to fill our wants in people or things of this world and end up giving more of ourselves in the processes than we lacked to begin with. Foolish how we look to stale bread when God has just offered us a fresh loaf through Jesus and His grace. God is the only One who can deliver us out of our desert and into an oasis that our eyes cannot see, but in fact is actually there waiting for us if we can just walk through the mirage of this life and it’s tempting yet deceiving streams of water. We must seek the real deal instead of go for every seemingly abundant facade of what we need. The trials of this dry land are en route to the true garden of rest and recovery. Where grass is grace and trees bear the fruit of our every need. Do not let bad apples stop you from getting to the orchard of Gods supplication. No money, no worry, no emotion is worth risking the very real truth that we will be left to rot with the rest.
Do not squander your treasure on false images of gold and happiness. God knows your needs and if you are able to receive them, you will make it out of the desert.

Love Is Strange


Strange how many of the things that make us the happiest leave us the most without. How what we invest most of ourselves never repays the favor.
I am familiar with the teeter totter of satisfaction. One day I am up, the next I hit the ground and am all alone on the playground. People have a strange way of loving. Often they only love their idea of what they hold closet. Often times they revoke that affection as soon as that idea is compromised.
I am familiar with that kind of love as well. I have both taken advantage and been taken advantage of. Human nature I suppose.
Luckily I have learned to love in a supernatural way which is the only kind that looks to fill you while it leaves you empty. The more you empty of yourself, the more you have available to be filled with Gods goodness. Strange how the farther we get away from our version of life, the closer we get to His plan for us.
When you feel the most foreign, you are closer to belonging. Let yourself go next time you are struggling to get loose. He will be where you are running and you will find what you run to. Strange how love is found when you are lost.

From Emptiness To Everything


Just when you fall on your face remember to look up and smile. Every fall leaves the scars that remind us that we got up once and will do it again. The key to one who succeeds and one who fails is belief. Belief in themselves, belief in their ability, belief in their strength.

I used to believe in all those things but still failed every time. I pushed, I pulled, I got pushed, I got pulled. Just when I gave up on myself Jesus gave victory to me. Just when I realized I was not the victor, He made one out of me.
We are not able to do anything without belief. In the One within ourselves, our ability, our strength. Jesus is all of those and in Him the wretched hollows of our lack become the garden of abundance.
I am no hero, but He is and with emptiness in myself comes everything through Him.

“Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning, For in You do I trust; Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, For I lift up my soul to You. Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies; In You I take shelter. Teach me to do Your will, For You are my God; Your Spirit is good. Lead me in the land of uprightness. Revive me, O Lord, for Your names sake! For Your righteousness sake bring my soul out of trouble. In Your mercy cut off my enemies, And destroy all those who afflict my soul; For I am Your servant. (Psalm 143:8-12 NKJV)”

Ready When You Are


God has no sense of time. We are unfortunately obsessed with it. This one contradiction can cause a multitude of unrealistic conflicts within our hearts and in our lives.

We want what we want when we ask. Whether its a piece of candy, a relationship, a job, an answer. God wants all of what we ask for to be given if it will glorify Him as well as somehow promote us in this life. His no could be a gift. We don’t know why we get unnerved when we pray hard and do not receive the answer we want when we ask. He knows why so regardless we should be ready to receive His grace and blessings when He is ready to deliver on his promises.
I am a witness to feeling lost and alone and for no good reason. To being devastated about a betrayal, a lost job, or unrecoverable love. However. I am also a witness to His recovery of all I thought I had lost and the distribution of double my portion.

” For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive. Because you have said, The Lord has raised up prophets for us in Babylon”(Jeremiah 29:11-15 NKJV)

Do not grieve when you feel like you have nothing. The more He removed He will restore in His timing and the more we will turn to Him and praise Him in the processes of trial.
Unlike our failing loyalty He knows no lie and His Word is the only truth we are graciously even able to apply to our lives through Jesus.
Live gratefully and you will live greatly..

The Promise


Good morning friends.

Remember what it is we are fighting for and tirelessly trying to demonstrate to those that are drifting or have drifted from the Lord. All souls need Jesus. God is using each of us for a predetermined work to capture our hearts so we may have our reward already assured in Jesus. God is our provision so do not get distracted by trial. Blessings to all you do in His mighty name.

Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed, Or the golden bowl is broken, Or the pitcher shattered at the fountain, Or the wheel broken at the well. Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, And the spirit will return to God who gave it. Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, All is vanity. (Ecclesiastes 12:6-8 NKJV)

A Helping Hand


So this morning I was really stuck on the idea of help and where it comes from. Now a days getting help from anyone is like pulling teeth at the dentist, however it has been quite the opposite from God. Ironic I was thinking it was that we are, as a majority, absolutely undeserving of anything from God, yet He delivers when we find ourselves stranded.
I was curious if anyone else has been a witness to God’s increase of grace in comparison to the earlier months of the year. Ezekiel is awesome to read around March thru about now because of his testament to increase around this time way back then.
Just excited to see chins being lifted by the Creator of our universe and seeing once more the power of truth and loyalty being demonstrated because we are ALL loved by God.

Now if we all could attempt to be so complimentary to one another as God is to us in need, we might just have the help we need for the winning hand in this poker kinda world.

I pray for everyone that needs increase of anything. May God let you experience the rest He gives when asked. It’s pretty cool! Hope you all are blessed!

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord (James 1:5 – 1:7 NKJV)

Divine Delivery


If there is among you a poor man of your brethren, within any of the gates in your land which the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart nor shut your hand from your poor brother, but you shall open your hand wide to him and willingly lend him sufficient for his need, whatever he needs. (Deuteronomy 15:7, 8 NKJV)

This verse is perfect not only because it is the Word of God, but because it reminds us of the way we are to live each and every day. Out of the simple act of offering 👐 the complexities of another’s life can be instantly alleviated. What may seem like crumbs to one may be fine dining to one who starves. 🍛
God has a personalized way of feeding our souls with life much like this analogy when we are starving for it. ❤ Nothing beats the satisfaction of divine delivery. Always on time. Doesn’t cost a dime. Have you eaten today?
