Sharing Is Caring

Lord, I just want to share the beauty of Your love with everyone I encounter.

May Your words spoken through me kiss their soul.

May Your Spirit smother every hurt, every pain.

Bring a peace that will flow like a river and wash every fear and doubtful thought away.

Encamp around them through  their daily journeys.

May the dipstick of their joy read “full”.

And Your comforting power bring that racing mind to a complete stop.

 

That’s all.

Conversations with God

I was asked to do something tonight and debated doing it. I just want to share how the conversation with God transpired

Me: Hmm…should I go?

Him: Go.

Me: Me not being there wont stop the show. *turns right to go home*

Him: you’re being disobedient.

Me: *sigh* ok Lord. *turns car around*

Him: you’re on assignment. You need to be there.

Me: *picks mouth up off the floor* Lord, I don’t know what to do or say. I need your help. Guide me.

Him: I will. But you’re going to have to listen.

Me: *chuckles* listen OK…OK…

Let us not just hear Him when He speaks, but listen and obey.

I love You, I’m just not that into You.

I find myself talking to my friends more than I talk to you.

I find myself entertaining others more than I pray.

I long for your presence but am busy to call upon Your name.

Praying before I leave the house in the morn? Sorry, no time because I overslept. Is it okay to pray on the go? We can have intimate time during my 10 minute drive to work. Don’t worry, i’ll lower the radio for a moment.

The best way to get to know someone is to spend time with them, but my time is too precious for You.

Yes, I binge watched a full 5 seasons this weekend and felt it was ok to say a quick thank You before I went to sleep.

I decided to take matters into my own hands, because my will is more important than Yours.

We can try Your way after we try my way.

I read the verse of the day in my bible app while at a red light.

What my friends are tweeting and posting is so much more interesting.

Hold on wait, my favorite YouTube couple just posted their latest vlog.

Ok, let me settle down and focus on You.

ZZZZzzzZzZZzZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I’ll do better tomorrow…

 

Ladies and gentleman, let us not take advantage of Gods grace.

 

To Be Continued….

whats on your mind?

As I grew up, there were certain songs I wasn’t allowed to listen to.  I didn’t understand why my parents were “torturing” me.  I knew why I couldn’t party “to the break of dawn”, but what was wrong with me listening to rap and r&b? All of my friends listened to it, therefore I just HAD to do the same. Little did I know, my parents knew just a little more than I did.  Who would’ve thought. lol.  To think they had more wisdom than I, a know it all teenager.

It wasn’t until I grew in my relationship with Christ that I gained an understanding of why I need to protect my ear gate…my spirit.  I’ll be the first to say that I’m that person who loves a good beat.  That moment you are listening to a song with a dope beat that causes you to make an “ugly face” and bop your head is gold. But there comes a time when we have to look past the beat and listen to the lyrics.

Since God placed this on my heart, I took a moment to reevaluate all of the music I listened to. How did the song make me feel? Who did I think about while listening to the song? There’s this one song, by a gospel artist, that didn’t lead me to Christ at all.  When I listened to it, it condoned my carnal thinking.   It didn’t connect me to Christ in any way. It didn’t challenge me to strengthen my walk with Him at all.  Have you taken a moment to listen to the lyrics of your favorite artist? Yes even your favorite gospel artist? I recommend you do. Half of these artist aren’t even mentioning the name of Jesus Christ anymore, nor pointing to Him in any way.  Let’s be mindful of what we put in our system.

If you’re reading this and you don’t know Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, there’s no better time like the present to invite Him into your heart and life. If you’d like to do this now, genuinely and sincerely pray this prayer…

Lord Jesus,
I truly believe that You are the Son of God. I confess that I have sinned against You and cannot save myself. Please forgive my wrongdoing and let me live in a relationship with You from now on. I receive You as my personal Savior and believe that You have died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead and are alive and can hear my prayers. I invite You to rule in my life and in my heart from this day forward. Help me to live a life that is pleasing to You. Thank You for saving me.
In Jesus’ name,
Amen.
