Living righteously allows us to walk in protection, provision, authority, life, diligently, abundantly, in freedom, joyfully, fruitfully, progressively, with strength, with patience, and with endurance. We long to hear the voice of God throughout our days. But the wicked do not seek to hear His voice or correction. The wicked walk according to flesh and fulfilling the lusts of flesh. The outcome is death. Living in correction brings honor. God brings correction to those He loves. He loves us enough to save us from the trap of death. So let us listen to the voice of God as He instructs us in our daily lives. This instruction births wisdom.
How will you walk in wisdom today?
When God reminds you of His promises, He is reminding you to hang on. He is reminding you to keep going. You will suffer, but know that these present afflictions are not to be compared to the glory ahead. God brings you into remembrance of what He promised so you can continue to set your mind on things above. You may get distracted, but He will gently get you back on the road leading to His wonderful gifts. When God reminds you of His promises, you can see just how much He wants to bless you. So continue to speak Gods Word and apply it to your life. Don’t give up hope. Because faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Hold on to God’s promises because they are all yes and amen. So this means they are guaranteed.
“1-Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
6-But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
Hebrews 11:1, 6 KJV
“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”
Romans 8:18 KJV
“For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.”
2 Corinthians 1:20 KJV
Love. Such a loaded word. Such a passionate word. A word that is said without thought. A word that is taken for granted it is thrown around, abused, and trampled on. Takes a beating and still loves on. It embraces our weaknesses, tears, and faults. Picks us up and dusts us off. Forgives us of our wrongs. Then wipes the slate clean like it was dust free all along. Love journeys with us as we walk this life. Blocking the things that causes wounds. It takes the hit instead. Causing our bodies to remain free of the lashes. Love frees, heals, and delivers. Love defeated death so we could live. Defeated the enemy so we could live victoriously. Bared the cross on Calvary so we could live blamelessly. Love knows us deeply. It flows to the inner most parts ans stays there. Causing our hearts and desires to shift. giving us a face lift. Because its impossible not to smile when you experience pure joy. Love has a way of keeping you wanting more. Its an addiction that doesn’t give you the shakes. A high that doesn’t have a low. Tracks marks are left on you heart and soul. It will leave people wondering how you stay sane and happy in the midst of turmoil. Love is pure. Love fresh. Love is inviting. Love is giving. Love is forgiving. Love curbs my appetite from imitations. It shows me my worth and why life is worth living. Love guards my life and causes it to stay on course. Not wavering, but standing firm. Love tackles my enemies and brings them to their knees. Causing them to surrender and leave. One way they came, seven they will flee. Think twice before coming for me. I have love on my side, back, and front. I have the luxury of calling and its there to hunt. Ready to fill me with more and filter out what isn’t needed. It keeps me from feeling depleted. Love is genuine. Love is strength. Love is power. Love is gracious. love is mighty. Love is faithful. Love is healing. Love is worthy. Love is patient. Love is kind. Love is trusting. Love is selfless. Love hopes. Love perseveres. Love is fail proof. This love I speak about is Jesus. Know Jesus and know love.
I must move closer to
I must live in
I must dwell in the face of
I must talk to
Let it consume my life
Consider its ways
Lead me day by day
Connect to it
Unity in the
Faith to faith
Patience in the
On the mountains
Down in the valleys
Dipped in the water
Loving that neighbor
Lifting up my Pastor
Mighty is the
Forever is the
Saturate me with Your
Serving the Heavenly Father will get me
I. Need. It.
Resting in Christ.
Trusting God knows what He’s doing.
Not having everything figured out.
Not knowing all of the details.
Being at peace with the leap.
Knowing God will take care of you.
Leaning not on your own understanding.
The key to His presence.
The door to access all He has for you.
Talking yourself out of doubt.
Leaping into the unknown.
Trusting your Holy Ghost.
Go ahead and grasp it. Fly. God wants to do “it” for you!
Ive been MIA, huh? Yeah, I know when I started this blog, I was going through a time in life when I had to be still and just listen to God. But at the time, i didn’t really know what He sounded like. But, the more I wrote, the more I not only heard His voice, I was able to see His words. This is when I shared with the world. He spoke to me as I went through and I shared to help someone else go through. Well eventually the storm passed. A new season came. I took a break as things shifted. I wrote every now and then, but didn’t post it. For me, writing is more than an escape, it’s ministry. If my words that are God given, give hope, peace, and joy… I’m for it. If I don’t feel Him moving, I can’t post it. So as I rebuild and refocus, it’s my hope that you will be patient. When I am released to post, you will know. I will post every opportunity I get. Stay tuned and bear with me. I have one goal in life and that is to tell of Him. I love you, but Jesus loves you more! #BeBlessed #UntilNextTime
I see you
I see the smile you wear to cover up the pain
Maybe if you smile hard enough no one will know you are going insane
You’re physically and mentally tired of putting on a front
When will someone hear you screaming “help”
I see you
You’re hurt, frustrated, and depressed
But you can’t even talk to anyone because you’re afraid of them finding out you’re a mess…inside
I see you
So you silently drown in your sorrow
Grasping for air
I see you
You decide enough is enough
I’m ready to exit this life
I can’t take another day of pretending and living a lie
How about I overdose on meds and just die
I see you
Life isnt worth living
It’s a constant struggle
No one understands
Man, where is this bottle?!
I see you
But before you pop that top to the bottle
Let me say
Jesus Christ is the way
Popping pills won’t heal the wounds
Taking your life isn’t cool
What if I told you Jesus sees you too
He’s waiting with outstretched hands to receive you
When will you realize that battle isn’t yours but His
Lay your problems on the altar and leave them there.
He will heal the hurt
He will mend your heart
He sees you
Run into His arms
