Questions For Thought

1. Who are you serving on a daily basis? Are you serving Me (Christ) or flesh? (Verse 9)

2. What does it mean to wait for Jesus Christ to save us from wrath? (Verse 10)

because of your faith…

I had a conversation with God.

As I asked what to do, He responded with “a move”.

“Whew, that’s gonna take a step of faith,” I said.

“So step,” He replied.  “Jump and watch Me catch you.  You’ll end up in the land you’ve been praying to enter.  A land that you envisioned.  No longer do you have to stand on the other side of the gate as you dream.  Now you can walk into all that you spoke and believed.  You came to Me and I saw your heart.  You put time in,  you did your part.  You allowed Me to be first in your life, so it’s now up to Me to add all of these things as I promised.  It’s time for Me to do what I said, because you were obedient to everything I said.  You followed My Word everyday.  Even behind closed doors.  Now, that’s integrity.  That’s smart. You now have My heart.  You desire to do My will over yours.  I am pleased to give you more.  Because I know that you will build My kingdom up and give Me the glory as I fill your cup.  Thank you for being faithful to Me, My child.”

One Word: Perfect

As I watched the sunset on January 31st, I couldn’t help but see the perfection of His beauty. I thought over my first month of 2018. Everyday was perfect. So my perfect days led to a perfect month. Gods glory was truly shown to me. His faithfulness was seen throughout the month. His beauty was radiating through the moments of each day. I rose with a will to seek Him. What I found was love, peace, joy, blessings galore, hope, love (can I say that twice?), obedience, sacrifice, ministry, perfecting of faith, abundance, and more. I found that when I am obedient to His will, I give God the opportunity to do the unexpected. What I found in my month, was being in His perfect will created perfect days which formed a perfect month.

That move the hand of God faith (I want it)

Faith walk. Faith talks. I slip. I fall. Because I took my eyes off it all. I believe what I can’t see. Until someone comes and gives their opinion. When I listen, I must remain prayerful. They can’t see my vision. So if I let their word in, I slip. I fall. No more faith. Now it’s all based on what I see. There is no calculating when walking in Me(Christ). Trust and believe you are on the right path. Keeping going in Me. Keep growing in Me. What you see will not always be when you are walking with Me. Faith walks. Faith talks. Getting moving.

This Thing Called Religion 

The only life that I want to live is a life that’s pleasing to Christ.One filled with malice, maliousiness, twofaceness, and hate just isn’t right. The life that I live on social media must match my reality. That’s important to me. Some say, Jess you take this thing to seriously. No, I act like this “thing” is important to me. I rather be known as the prayerful, loving, Jesus giving girl. Then the one that cursed someone without a care. Maybe if enough of us took this “thing” a little more seriously, the hurt and lost would be more willing to listen. But right now, all they see is the church being the world’s equal. Instead of the church without a spot or a wrinkle.
Give Jesus. The people need Him. 

God has the juice 

Quick story…
My 2 year old niece stayed the night with me. Like most toddlers, she took over the bed and invaded my space. lol. I slid her over to her side multiple times. But the last time I moved her little body, she opened her pretty eyes to look for me. She stretched out her hand and moved back over towards me. What I then realized was that she didn’t just accidentally wander to my side, it was more than that. She wanted to be held. She wanted to be close. Maybe she just wanted to feel loved? Maybe she felt protected? Whatever she longed for, she knew that I had it.  
Long story short….GOD HAS WHAT YOU NEED!
I began to think, how often does God try to get our attention? How much would He love for us to just stop what we are doing and reach out to Him? Run to Him? Love on Him? Cry out to Him? Worship Him?  
HE HAS WHAT WE NEED.
Get into His presence.  

Worship. 

Pray. 

Fast. 

Cry out. 

Read the Bible.  
Peace and Blessings.

A work to be done

There’s a work to be done. A great work to be done. devil out here waring on souls. Not playing fair at all. He is out to seek all whom he can devour. But ourGod is bigger than every attack. We must attract the Spirit. Stay with us. Show love to those who are feeling stuck. Let go of the egos and the way you think it should be done. Souls are remaining in bondage because they are not proper enough when they enter the church. It’s amazing how when they come in, we judge. What they are wearing has suddenly become more important than what they are wearing. Do you get it? I’m not talking about clothing. I’m talking about masks. I’m talking about how they just sold their bodies for cash. I’m talking about the addictions you can smell they have. I’m talking about the bruise on their calf. They claimed to have fallen down the steps. You quickly move on because it’s time for offering. But you should be offering your heart and helping hand. But we say I will pray for you and never do. Think about how this soul may be depending on you. Give your time and stop turning your back on folks. You think you’ll make it into heaven to find your access has been revoked. We must do better as a people. We must start spreading the love we were commissioned to give. And stop picking and choosing who we give it to. What if God did that to you? Lets fulfill this mission keeping God on our minds. Let’s give Him our time. May He lead us to the souls that are dying. Lord, have your way. Work. 

“If You Faint Not…”

There are times I want to give up. There are times I want to scream. There are times I don’t understand. There are times I question. But my Holy Ghost won’t let me quit. He won’t let me throw in the towel. He won’t let me give up. For I am His and He is mine. This song has gotten me through those times I was almost completely over it….including today. The name of the song is “Oceans (Where feet may fail)”.

https://youtu.be/1m_sWJQm2fs
Here are the lyrics ⬇️ :

You call me out upon the waters

The great unknown where feet may fail

And there I find You in the mystery

In oceans deep

My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name

And keep my eyes above the waves

When oceans rise, my soul will rest in Your embrace

For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters

Your sovereign hand

Will be my guide

Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me

You’ve never failed and You won’t start now

So I will call upon Your name

And keep my eyes above the waves

When oceans rise, my soul will rest in Your embrace

For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders

Let me walk upon the waters

Wherever You would call me

Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander

And my faith will be made stronger

In the presence of my Savior

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders

Let me walk upon the waters

Wherever You would call me

Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander

And my faith will be made stronger

In the presence of my Savior

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders

Let me walk upon the waters

Wherever You would call me

Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander

And my faith will be made stronger

In the presence of my Savior

I will call upon Your name

Keep my eyes above the waves

My soul will rest in Your embrace

I am Yours and You are mine
