As I Walk Through The Valley In The Shaddow Of Death, I Shall Fear No Evil, Because Though Are With Me!!!

As I Walk Trough The Valley In The Shaddow Of Death,I Shall Fear No Evil, Because Though Are With Me!!!

Out utter darkness straight into your marvelous light, I surrendered my soul, my will, my might, in complete faith that You will be right here with me until I get it right,

my Lord You haven’t failed me yet, my faith is “DEEPLY” set, so I know that this too, shall pass and if I were a betting man, on this I would bet,

You have brought me through this valley of darkness before, and if this dark valley draw me closer to You my Lord, give me more, because I know there is great reward just the other side of this vally’s door,

Though there’s a lot that goes on in the darkness of this valley, things that make it hard for one to see, comig from everywhere are attacks from the enemy

my Lord I truly thank You, because with You I can walk by faith, not by sight,  when the storms come I don’t have to run in fright, Lord You set me upon eagles wings so that I may soar to a great hight, all while, my major battles, You stay and fight,

faith brings peace, peace brings rest, it’s in this place of rest that I obtain the tenacity to withstand the enemy’s best, and I know that there is no moving forward until I pass the test,

so my Lord, I am free, and free indeed, not free withn and of myself, but free in Thee, and this is why:

As I Walk Through The Valley In The Shadow Of Death, I Shall Fear No Evil, Because Though Are With Me!!!

Thank You Jesus…

Year “23”!!!

May 23 2015 was year “23” of my marriage anniversary, and it looks as though year “23” will be the year that we experience our biggest defeat from the enemy…

I have fought hard, and for a very long time, with no unity, no rythem, no ryme, waiting patiently for the glory of God to brightly shine…

Waiting, waiting, waiting to no avail, so I asked myself; in being a husbman, did I fail, has the love that I’ve offered become stale?

I don’t know! but I have no more stregnth to fight; I really don’t won’t to let it go,though, it seems we have torn each other down, not propelled one another to grow…

Three broken souls are a result of this mess, “23” yrs. ago I thought the attacks were just test’s, but now I can’t help but wonder if we both just settled for less than God’s best?

So here I stand, listening closely for God’s next command, praying for the stregnth to move in faithfulness and obedience to whatever it is that my God may demand…

We are to walk by faith, not by sight, and it’s this faith that has motivated me to stay and fight, fight, fight, but hope’s light has become very dim, no longer shining bright…

Despite me and what I’m going through, I know that God is still on His Throne and He is still in complete and tolal control, He is the keeper of my soul, so pleasing Him is my only goal, in-spite of who I may win, or whom I may lose, it is with my Lord that I will “ALWAYS” choose to roll..

Victory, victory, victory, it’s not always easy, but victory “WILL” be, as I pray for you and yours I ask that you also pray for mine, and me, in this very trying

Year “23”!!!

Happy Mother’s Day!!!

M-otivated: A mother is motivated by her love for her children

O-utstanding: A mother is outstanding in her sacrificial demonstration of that love

T-errifying: A mother can be very terrifying, if you hurt one of her babies

H-ero: A mother is a hero, because she always makes a way

E-mpowered: A mother has an inner power, which can only be obtained through the Holy Spirit

R-ighteous: a mother strives to remain in right standing with our Lord so that she my be able to keep us wayward, backsliding, rebellious

A mother is the root to her family’s tree,

she loves selflessly,

unconditionally,

with a mother it’s always children first, then me,

see

A mother is a mother, not just to her own seed,

but a mother is a mother to those who are in need,

she’s proud to say, I’m a mother, when being a mother causes her to shed a tear, even when it makes her heart bleed

A mother is so much more than: a baby mama,

a mother protects her children, not expose them to uneccesary pain confusion and drama

A mother is there, when the air is thick, a mother is there, when the air is thin,

a mother is there to give all that she has, all that she is, so that you can win

A mother is the nurturer of God’s green Earth,

it’s through the love and guidance of a mother that man, first, finds his worth

A mother’s love is a reservoir

you’ll think that your rebellion has caused her to run empty, though it may be rough, at times tough, a mother know how to give more,

the world will, but on her child, a mother will never completely close the door

A mother is a breath of fresh air,

she’s fearless, even when in her face adversity stare,

and this, lady’s and gentlemen is why I boldly declare

To every mother under the sun, you are a queen,

from the bottom of my heart, this I mean

So put on your crown,

as you move about town

May all go your way,

is what I pray,

I love each and every one of you, and may you all have a very,

Happy Mother’s Day!!!

Where Is The Love?

Love worketh no ill to his neihbor: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

But I say unto you. Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you and persecute you.

Matthew 24:12

And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

John 15:13

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Galations 5:6

For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availith anything, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

Colossians 2:2

That their hearts might be comforted being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of uderstanding, to the acknowlegement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ.

1 Thessalonians 1:3

Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father.

Deuteronomy 6:5

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

Where Is The Love?

I can hear, with my ear the word love being tossed to and fro, this love that I can hear, so clear, is not seen though, I’ve looked high and I’ve looked low. Where is it?

Where Is The Love?

I’m talking genuine, agape, this love that’s felt and seen through what we do, not just heard in the words that we may say, when it seems to be no other, this is the love that says; together, we “CAN” make a way, but where is it?

Where Is The Love?

What I see, are hearts that are cold and emty, hearts that are bound but beleive that their free, selfish hearts, unforgiving hearts, hearts that are void of empathy, so I ask;

Where Is The Love?

Love was sent to us from the Heavens above, and this took place over 2,000 years ago, yet, on today we act as if we just don’t know, I’ve searched high, I’ve searched low, where did it go?

Where Is The Love?

I know that it’s still here because Jesus is Love, and He left a remnent before ascending into the Heavens above, but I can’t find it so I cry out;

Where Is The Love?

The word of God tells us that this world is to see “Him” through the way that we as beleivers are to love one another, then the word of God ask a question: how can we love God whom we have not seen, if we can’t love those who we do see, our sister and our brother? I ask again;

Where Is The Love?

This question is not so much for those outside of the body of Christ, because they simly don’t know, but this question is for those of us who are within, for we are supoosed to show, it was once here, but where did it go?

Where Is The Love?

Through faith in Christ I know that this genuine, selfless, agape love will reveal it’s pretty face again real soon, then this entire corupt and loveless world will begin to dance to a brand new “LOVE” tune. Until then I’ll continue crying out to my Lord above, asking;

Where Is The Love?

Profound Revelation!!! (Don’t Be Deceived By The Ambiance Of Darkness)

I am a 2nd shifter, and as far back as I can remember the majority of my writing has been done late at night. I have always loved the night. I’m able to fully function in the night hours. So when I write, late night, I prefer the ambiance of minimal light.

Well, this worked fine until a few weeks ago when my eyes would begin to water, the words on the page would become blurred and I would get a slight headache (evidence of getting older :)). My very fist thought was that I would have to change my writing schedule from the p.m. to the a.m.. Then the Holy Spirit spoke to me gently, saying, if you gave yourself more light by turning on the bigger ceiling light then you’ll be O.K. (duuugh, that should have been my first thought).

Nevertheless, I turned on the bigger brighter light and haven’t had a problem since, but the Holy Spirit continued dealing with me in regard to this Light and darkness thing. He used my preference of the ambiance that is ushered in by using minimal light to reveal to me other areas of my life where I preferred the ambiance of the darkness rather than the truth of the Light.

I was then led by the Holy Spirit to 1 John 1:5 (amp)

And this is the message [the message of promise] which we have heard from Him and now are reporting to you: God is Light, and there is no darkness in Him at all [no, not in any way];

then I was led to John 3:19 (K.J.V.)

And this is the condemnation, that Light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than Light, because their deeds were evil.

Yes, I admit, I do like the ambiance of a dimly lit, romantic setting, but through this experience the Holy Spirit brought back to my memory, that in Heaven, we will live, move and have our being in the fullness of the Light of  God’s countenance, 24/7, where there is absolutely no darkness at all, and NO SIN. Now what greater ambiance and romance is there than this?

My Prayer:

Father God, I thank you for this revelation on Light and darkness in which you have graciously given to me. Father, forgive me for those dark areas of my life in which I love rather than Light. Father, give me the willingness and ability, through the power of the Holy Spirit which dwell within me to walk out of these dark areas straight into your Marvelous Light; in Jesus Mighty name I pray, AMEN…

Next Chapter!!!

This present chapter of my life has been very long, and full of pain…strong winds and heavy rain…it was only the grace of my God that kept me from going insane.

Finally, I can see relief…but not without one last stagger backwards caused by a blow from the murderer, the destroyer, the thief.

The enemy may think that he has won this war…ohhhh, but little does he know, there’s so much more…in store.

Yeah, I’m walking away naked and bare…but with victory, because I’m walking away, and in the face of Jesus I continue to stare.

All that the enemy has stolen from me in this chapter he can surly have, because my future, he can’t touch…what my God has revealed to me about Himself in this chapter has been much…I pray for Jesus to reveal Himself “MIGHTILY” to “ALL” those who think He is just a crutch.

Though I would not want to go through this again, I thank God for allowing this season…I’ve learned so much already, but only time will reveal the full purpose and reason.

Despite the pain and confusion in this chapter there’s still so much that I’ve been working toward…one foot in front the the other is the only way to move forward.

Old things has passed away, behold, all things becoming new…it’s to my destiny and God’s purpose that I vow to remain true.

I won’t be destracted by the enemy, a.k.a.the great destractor…I’m walking out of the old straight into this,

Next Chapter!!!

Against All Odds!!!

The chips were stacked against me…all I had was a cloudy vision of my destiny,

un-educated, and I had no real plan…I even put my faith in me, and in man.

I tried that, and I tried this…now I stand here today…and I say…it was all amiss.

Chasing after successs…while putting my soul in a deeper and deeper mess.

Trying to obtain all the things that this world told me I could…trying to get all that they say I should.

I walked by sight, not by faith…thinking that it was my way that would usher me into that destined place…not knowing that I was getting further and further behind in this race.

I thank my God, because He didn’t allow Jesus to come, “just” for those who have everything together…those who are already standing strong in the midst of the rough weather,

but rather Jesus came to set captives free…those who’s chips are stacked against them, those like me…He came for those who are blind, but really want to see.

My Lord and Savior came for those of us who are fighting;

Against All Odds!!!

If this is you too…don’t be discouraged by your situation; know that God is faithful and true.

My God chooses those of us who are tore-up…from the floor-up so He can get the glory…from our story.

If you’re already a “Made” man…then people will think that it’s all you-your will, your plan.

Nine times out of ten this you won’t deny…because you forget that your blessings come from Him who sits in the Heavens above the sky.

It’s the struggle in the storm of dust…that bring us to the point where we “KNOW” it’s in God that we can trust.

It’s not profitable to despise where you are, or the things that come against you…know that with you…God is not through.

In the word of God He didn’t just use men of high degree…but rather, He used men who were below average, average, or just plain ordinary…like you, and like me.

I encourage you today, don’t get impatient when waiting on the “ONE” True God and turn to other false god’s…”STAND”  knowing that God is preparing you even now to win;

Against All Odds!!!

Blessed Assurance!!!

Once you have accepted Jesus as Lord over your life, and given Him your whole heart…then from you, His Holy Spirit “WILL NOT” depart…know, that a lifelong process is about to start…it won’t be easy, you WILL make bad decisions, you WILL stumble, you WILL miss the mark…to walk with Jesus is not neccessarily a walk in the park.

Through it all…your bad decisions, your stumble, and even your fall…you can get back up with endurance…believing that your wrapped in God’s

BLESSED ASSURANCE

God won’t leave you…niether will He forsake you…your in His hands being made whole, being made new.

Your being made in the image of God’s only begotten Son…so in all actuallity your battle is already won.

It’s the Holy Spirit that’s leading you through…remember, patience is a virtue…so don’t give up on God, because God won’t give up on you…within you, God WILL continue that good work in which He has started to do.

No height, nor depth, nor any other created thing shall seperate us from the Love  of God. Don’t take my word on this…because I’m human, subject to miss…but rather read for yourself in the book of Romans chapter eight verse thirty nine…when you seek, you WILL find…and when it’s God that you seek, you’ll have peace of mind…reasurance…and,

BLESSED ASSURANCE

Which is, the knowing that you are God’s workmanship…and this knowing gives us the power to praise God, not murmur, complain and give Him a bunch of lip.

Hold your head high, knowing that you are Heaven bound…you once was lost, but you’ve been found…though that ol’ mountain, once or twice more, you still may have to go around…hold on, don’t let go…stay in faith, stand on what you know.

It’s only in God that we go from true glory, to glory, to glory…so relax while He divinely writes your story.

You can rest in the knowing that God is in control, and He is full of love, grace and mercy…even after you have missed the mark, you can go to Him on bended knee…God sent Jesus to us to set us free…and who the Son sets free, is free indeed.

This is better than full coverage insurance…this is,

BLESSED ASSURANCE!!!

Revelation Through Our Occupation!!!

In Febuary 2015 I will have earned my keep as a driver in the state of Michigan for “12” yrs. Here in Michigan we experience some of the worst winter weather in the world. Our weather here is very unpredictable. One minute it can be a pretty pleasant day, then the next minute it can be a major storm brewing.

In my almost “12” yrs as a driver I’ve driven through some of the most treacherous weather imaginable. Over the years I’ve learned how to make necessary adjustments in my driving to make it to my destination safely. I’ve also learned, or should I say, in the process of learning how to make these very same adjustments when driving through the storms of life, which can be just as treacherous.

The first adjustment would be to slow down so that my tires wont lose traction, and I end up ultimately losing control of the vehicle. The storms of life warrants that same first response. It is always harder to hear the voice of God when moving through life at a fast pace. We should be slow to speak in these seasons because our first natural response would be to speak on the power of the storm, instead of the power of our God.

We should also be slow to wrath, being conscious of the fact that the storm has the potential to ignite that anxiety that provokes wrath. See, in the midst of these storms it’s a natural response to allow the spirit of anxiousness to creep in, because we are in a hurry to get to that piont of destination, that place of comfort and safety.

This brings me to the next adjustment which is removing my eyes from the clock inside the vehicle so that I wont get destracted by the time, and fixing my eyes on the road in front of me. Not worrying about the extra time that it’s taking to reach my destination. I would much rather keep my wheels moving forward at a slower pace than to find myself sitting in a ditch. That would definately provoke anxiety and wrath.

Removing all distractions from our view, and fixing our eyes on, The Way, The Truth and The Life, also known as Jesus is vital in making it through the storms of life as well. Jesus Desciples were inside of a boat and saw Him walking on the water towards thier boat. The Apostle Peter asked Jesus to allow him to walk out to meet Him on the water. Well Jesus told Peter, COME, and Peter began to walk on water successfully as long as he kept his eyes fixed on Jesus, but began quickly sinking when he had taken his eyes off of Jesus and fixed them on the storm instead.(Matthew 14:24-31)

These are just a few of the revelations that God has given me through my occupation. I believe that God is speaking to His people all the time, giving insites and revelation through the occupations of His people. Jesus told the apostle Peter, before Peter became an apostle, that He would make Him a fisher of men. See Peter was a fisherman,therefore he understood that concept very well.

Jesus also used the analogy of seed planting many times troughout His ministry because thier were many farmers in that day who would fully understand this concept. I believe that our God is still giving insite and revelation through our occupations even on today. So I encourage you to listen closely for the voice of God which just may be trying to give you revelation through your occupation.

Blessings to you…

LOVE…GRACE…PEACE…

Welcome 2015!!!

The year 2014 was a very ineresting year for me…I learned some very important lessons throughout the year, with one lesson being: the victory…the victory that we recieve over our situations when we stand in faith, when we choose to wait on the Lord to loose us and set us free…faith is not neccesaritly easy… It’s not easy to believe for that in which we can’t see, that in which our situations tell us can’t be.

It’s not easy to stand…it’s not easy to stand alone in a dry and desolate land…when it feel as though we’re standing in quick-sand…it’s not easy to stand…it’s not easy to stand when out the window has been thrown all that we have planned.

It’s not easy to stand, but in 2014 I stood…I didn’t think that I had the ability to coninue standing, but God kept telling me that I could…I would…well I did, and what He gave me in return was all good.

Now 2014 is in my rear view…and 2015 has ushered in more hope for what my God will continue to do…not just for me, but if you believe, it’s for you too.

God has been preparing His People for a mighty work that has yet to be seen…and I believe that it’s time for the manifestation of that mighty work, and this is why I say;

Welcom 2015!!!
