ABOVE THE STORM!!!

Screenshot 2016-04-11 at 11.32.20 PMStorms are a part of life, but not sent to destroy,rather to usher us into total surrender, submission and ultimately a place where peace passes all human understanding, and unspeakable joy.

Storms are sent to strengthen our faith and develop godly character and integrity, but we must keep our eyes on the Trinity, while being led into total serenity.

And this is how we fly,

ABOVE THE STORM!!!

In the midst of the bitter and cold, this is how we stay warm, by staying focused on Him who gives us grace when within our flesh lies a great thorn.

The mighty hand of God is upon you and I, He’s perpetually preparing us for when it’s above the storm that we must fly.

These storms are not meant to kill us in the midst thereof, but to teach us how to soar like an eagle by remaining focused on our Lord  who looks low but is seated at the right hand of The Father, who is seated high above,

in Heavenly places, where our spirit can also dwell, being captivated by angelic faces.

All while being surrounded by the demons that the storm has brought in, sent to steal, kill and destroy by offering us a deceptive way to win, they would have us to focus on the storm, causing fear and a greater temptation to sin.

But it’s,

ABOVE THE STORM!!!

This is where we were created to soar, defeating the enemy in his game of war.

Boldly professing God’s word, but God’s word can only be professed when God’s word is heard.

We must study to show ourselves approved, we must stand as the tree that’s planted by the water of the river and not be moved.

Victory is yours, victory is mine, “this” we must stand on right in the middle of the storm where the sun does not shine, but the Power of the Son is ever so strategic, ever so divine.

It’s His Holy Spirit that will lead us every step of the way, our part is to trust and obey, listening diligently to the words that the Holy Spirit say.

If you can’t hear His voice at this particular time, then stand still on what He has already said, knowing that His promises to you are not dead,

but fully alive indeed, and the storms bring water and nutrition to your planted seed, the storms are not at all comfortable, but for the storms, there is a need.

These storms we must go through, I believe these are to see if it’s to our faith that we’re willing to remain true, if we are willing to allow the Holy Spirit to lead us through.

It’s the witnessing of our Heavenly Father bringing us through the storms that builds muscle to our faith, and character to our spiritual form, it’s then that we are ready to soar like an eagle,

ABOVE THE STORM!!!

That Name!!!

image

That Name which is above every name, in Heaven, and here on Earth,
This is the Name that holds the highest value, it holds the most worth.

There is healing in That Name, deliverance in That Name, total freedom in That Name,
It’s now over two thousand years after the sinless life, crucifying death and His resurrection, and That Name still has world wide fame,
though many “still” reject His claim.

In That Name lies salvation,
it’s to That Name that we are to give hours upon hours of meditation,
it’s in That Name that we find strength and courage to move forward with no fear, no hesitation,
it’s That Name that gives us hope in a hopeless situation.

It’s to This Name that “EVERY” knee will bow, “inevitably”,
this is That Name that has ultimately,
set us free,
free from the consequences of our sin and iniquity.

He’s The Lord of lord’s, King of kings,
joy deep down in one’s soul is what He bring,
and from that point it’s songs of thanksgiving that we sing.

It’s through the power of That Name that we are able to go straight to our Heavenly Father to plead our case,
He gave an invitation, saying: come to Me when you are wearied in your race.

At the mentioning of That Name satin himself will flee,
if you don’t believe me,
then taste for yourself and see.

The Lord “is” good,
His Name is Jesus and I promise, you will never again be the same,
once you call out, submit and surrender to;

That Name!!!

Philippians 3:13

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.

Reaching Forth!!!

This past season of my life was saturated with confusion and pain,
heavy winds and plenty of rain,
it was the boat of faith that kept me afloat when the floods came.

Faith in the promises of God to those who beleive,
because sometimes we must go through Hell and back again before we really recieve.

Trials and tribulations,
broken relations,
missed expectations.

Tremendously hot was the fire’s flame,
some things were burned up, some things were lost along the way, but those things with a godly purpose for my future still remain.

I’m forgetting those things which are behind,
it’s through that agape love, grace and mercy of my God that I have a renewed mind.

No longer searching to the east, to the west, no longer searching to the south or to the north,
but rather it’s to the purposes of my Savior Jesus Christ that I will continue;

Reaching Forth!!!

Relentless Pursuit!!!

image

Pursuing relentlessly,
all that You my Lord have already predestined for me.

Lord You have given me visions, You have given me dreams,
You have given me the faith to know that things are not always what it seems.

You’ve given me the wisdom to know that the enemy is the great deceiver,
through my tribulations my Lord, You made me a stronger believer.

I surrender my will, I surrender my way,
training that spiritual ear within me to hear every word that You say,
placing myself in the palm of Your hands, so You my Lord can continue shaping, molding me as a potter does his clay.

Lord I am Yours, and You are mine,
so it’s no longer in the light of this wicked and lost world that I desire to shine,
but rather in the powerful light of Your Holy Spirit, and in Your perfect time.

Yes my Lord, my priorities have changed,
my thought process has been totally rearranged,
I’m purposed, so when trials do come, I no longer think it strange.

I realize, that trying to keep me from Your promises, the enemy won’t quit,
so abiding under the wings of the “ALMIGHTY” is where I’ll be, Lord, in Your presence is where I’ll sit.

Seeking marching orders from You,
as I go about doing Kingdom Business in a world which believes truth is false and false is true.

All while being intentional in watching for those “set” traps set by the very subtle, deceptive enemy, and Lord You know that I’m not perfect at it, but in the name of Jesus: my life “WILL” bear Your fruit,
give me strength my Lord, because this is, a,

Relentless Pursuit!!!

Beholding Your Glory!!!

image

Father God, beholding Your glory for me is a must,
in the midst of this wicked and perverse generation, it’s in Your glory that I trust.

This is the generation that heap all glory on self,
a generation which make god’s out of those with financial wealth.

But Father it is You,
it is You whom I give all praise, honor and glory too,
in the darkest seasons of my life Father, it was You who shone the light so I could see my way through.

So, the way that I see it, there is no glory if the glory isn’t Yours,
this is the glory that’s powerfully manifested even as I stand in front of closed doors

Father it’s Your glory that gives me patience, and faith to know,
that when You say no,
it’s not to hurt me, but rather to cause me to grow,
that through me, Your glory can show.

Heavenly Father, Your glory is not always seen through the natural eye,
so I strengthen my spiritual eye,
when daily, deep down in Your word I pry.

Your glory is here,
so I can walk by faith with no fear.

Thankful that the ignorant destruction of my past,
Father through Your loving kindness, grace and mercy, it didn’t last,
and through it all Lord, it’s Your strength that enables me to stand fast.

Father You are in the process of re-writing my story,
as I stand even now;

Beholding Your Glory!!!

Pressing On!!!

image

Another year is soon to pass us by,
this has been a year of trial and tribulation, yet my faith didn’t die.

I’m preparing even now for all things becoming new,
It’s all a process and that’s why I had to go through what I went through.

I’m ready,
I haven’t walked perfectly, but in regard to God’s word I’ve walked steady.

Step by step, out of darkness, and into that place of purpose and destiny,
and even when it’s hard for me to see,
I stand, knowing that what God said will be, “will be”.

So, as I prepare to close this chapter of twenty fifteen and begin writing this new chapter of twenty sixteen,
I give less attention to my distractions and more attention to those things which are only spiritually discerned and seen,
I mean, I’m;

Pessing On!!!

No resolution,
no restitution,
just fruitful solutions.

No selfish motives or ambitions,
just desperately seeking God’s perfect will to come to fruition.

I’m going deeper,
with sights on a place where the gates are pearl, the streets are gold, so I won’t settle for less, that which is cheaper.

I started this journey a long time ago,
the struggle is real, but now more than ever, I know, that I know, that I know.

My God is The Truth, He’s Realer than Real,
He gives me power over Satin himself, who is here for nothing else but to destroy, to kill and to steal.

Despite the enemy’s attacks,
I wont, I can’t go back.

Forward movement is a must,
and all things working together for my good, is in what I trust.

So Satin, I rebuke you in Jesus name, be gone,
for the Spirit of The Lord is within me and I’m,

Pressing On!!!

Peace, Deep Down On The Inside!!!

image

This peace in which I obtain comes not from man, not from any situation, not from any circumstance,
not from song and not from dance.

This peace can’t be sold, this peace can’t be bought,
see this peace was manifested only after the face of my Lord and Savoir was diligently sought.

This peace is here and it’s here to stay,
it’s deep down on the inside so it cant just get up and fly away.

The enemy has tried to take my peace away though,
using his deceptive lies that didnt make it past go.

See, these are not even my battles so I don’t have to fight,
but rather keep my faith and focus on the one and only True Light.

His name is Jesus Christ and from me He has taken away my fear, arrogance and pride,
then He replaced it all with that great;

Peace, Down On The Inside!!!

Philippians 3:13-14/Perpetual Press!!!

Philippians 3:13-14

13) Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.
14) I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Perpetual Press!!!

Pressing toward the mark despite the failures of yesturday,
Knowing, that I am in God’s Hands being shaped and molded as a potter does his clay.

I am the Lord’s, and the Lord is mine,
when I miss the mark, even when I fall out of line.

For we, within and of ourselves can never apprehended,
but we can always cry out to our Heavenly Father in our weakness, and that “ALL SUFFICIENT GRACE”, He will surely send.

Only in the Blood of The Lamb “Jesus Christ” is our future guaranteed to shine brightly, and therein lies our hope,
so when the enemy whispers the devastating words in your ear (Your Defeated)  loudly say, NOPE.

Then cry out to our Lord, and say “YES”,
to this;

Perpetual Press!!!

Thanksgiving Day 2015!!!

image

I thank You my Lord for allowing me to see yet another Thanksgiving Day,
I thank You my Lord for bringing me to this point where I’m doing less of my own and more your way,
I thank You my Lord for your grace and mercy which covers me even when Your perfect “will” I don’t obey.

I thank You for the roof over my head,
I thank You for a nice warm bed,
I thank You for my faith being fully alive, not dead.

I thank You my Lord for the good times and my tribulations too,
I thank You my Lord for your faithfulness being ever so true,
I thank You my Lord for the power of Your Holy Spirit guiding and leading me through.

I thank You for all the wonderful people who unconditionally loves me,
I thank You for setting me free,
so that I too can love unconditionally.

I thank You my Lord for washing me and making me clean,
I thank You my Lord for “ALL” that You have done and for “ALL” that’s still unseen,
I thank You my Lord for this;

Thanksgiving Day 2015!!!

Peeling Back The Layers!!!

image

There are many layers of this sinful flesh of mine,
peeling each layer back so that God’s glory can brightly shine.

This, by no means is a easy task,
but very necessary to reveal self to self by removing the mask.

I thought that I was almost there,
now I see that I don’t know what, don’t know when, don’t know where.

Though I do know who,
my Lord, my Savior; it’s Jesus that will continue that good work in which He has begun to do.

See, I have thought of myself higher than I ought,
and my faithful Lord and savoir has brought me to nought.

I give thanks to my Lord for me being in this place,
the peeling back of these layers is just preperation so that I may finish my race.

I came to the Lord just as I was, and He accepted me; but He loves me waaay too much to leave me that way,
this walk is not always clear, not always easy, not always fun; but from this walk I will not stray, I will not run.

So I ask for your prayers,
as I continue;

Peeling Back The Layers!!!
