THE POWER IN LETTING GO!!!

Screenshot 2016-05-28 at 10.57.16 PM

Letting go of those things in which we love is never easy, but sometimes there is great power therein, see, without the Word and Spirit of God being saturated within, our hearts are most deceptive and will lead us into all sorts of sin.

Arrogance, selfishness and pride just to name a few, it takes the Word and Spirit of God to show us, about us, that which is ugly, that which is true.

So many of us miss out on God’s best for fear of giving up on our own dreams, our own will, our own way, so we move full speed ahead not seeking at all God’s face, nor listening at all to what He is trying to say, and it’s “only” when we find ourselves in that dark place that we choose to pray, when God wants continual, perpetual fellowship with His children in every situation, every circumstance, every hour, every minute, every second of each and every day.

Total surrender, total submission, letting go of our own desires, letting go of our own selfish ambition.

Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that God has a prosperous plan for each of us, yet, we refuse to believe, we refuse to trust, when, to walk in God’s will, faith and trust is a must.

I’m not saying that to walk in God’s will is to walk trial and tribulation free, but through the storms we have an inner joy and peace, and spiritual eyes to clearly see.

We see that at the end of the tunnel there is a light, we see that our faith muscles are getting bigger and stronger with every fight, we see that despite all the opposition it’s still God’s will that true, God’s will that’s right.

We also see that it’s complete brokenness that propels God to show, we see that faithfulness to God’s will is what gives us that righteous glow, and of our own selves, we see,

THE POWER IN LETTING GO!!!

FAITH!!!

praying-hands-clipart-3

Faith is a peace, a calm down on the inside, when the storms of life arise, it’s on eagles wings that faith will propel one to ride, surfing the tide, knowing, that this to must be God’s will and in God’s will choosing to abide.

Faith is glorifying our Lord more and more and self, less and less, it’s the ability to look for nuggets in the midst of life’s mess, instead of allowing fear to cause us to hesitate or plainly say no, faith will cause us, in spite of fear, to shout YES LORD YES.

FAITH!!!

Faith can’t be applied without a test, designed, not for us to fail, but to bring out our very best, to reveal to us that it’s only in the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit that we are able to find complete rest, knowing, that past, present and future sins, from “God’s” eyes have been cast as far as the east is from the west.

This, the Bible says God has delivered unto each man a measure thereof, so walk by: faith, in: peace and joy, and with: a whole lot of love.

I’m not talking about that fake humanistic love that we’re used too, but that love which is true, agape love from above which is less about what we say and more about what we do.

Step by step moving from glory to glory, from place to place, you can do it; you can finish this race, by continuing to seek God’s face, and by continuing to walk, not by what you see, but…by,

FAITH!!!

 

 

YOU ARE!!!

space_shining_star_2114

You are a masterpiece fearfully and wonderfully created by our Creator, uniquely made for a purpose, so of no one, be an imitator.

 

Life may not be happening the way you thought it would, things may not be going the way you think they should,

 

but know, for your life, God still has a master plan, I know that the enemy has told you time and time again, that it’s over for you, you can’t do it, but God sent me to tell you, “YES YOU CAN”, because,

 

YOU ARE!!!

 

You are His, and He is yours, He is the way when closed are all the other doors,

 

Yeah, you’ve been through this, that and the other thing, though none of it was meant to take you out, but rather to give you a testimony, and a song of thanksgiving to sing.

 

Our God has been with you through it all, right there to lift you up again after every fall.

 

He’s extending His mighty right hand unto you even now, saying: get up one more time, while keeping your eyes stayed on “ME”, not on the mountain that you have yet to climb; because,

 

YOU ARE!!!

 

You are a jewel, a diamond in the rough, though, to get that polished shine is never easy, but indeed very tough.

 

All that you need is already on the inside of you, but the Holy Spirit is needed to shape it, mold it, and to bring it through.

 

So trust, and know that our God is just.

 

Through the sacrificial Blood of The Lamb you have the victory already, it’s not in your own will and plan, but in our Savior’s  will that you must walk, not perfectly but steady.

 

All of your life has been preparation for such a time as this, so arise to the challenges, so that, God’s divine purpose for your life, you won’t miss.

 

It’s your time to; through the Power of The Holy Spirit, shine like a star, it’s your time to show the world, it’s God’s child that,

 

YOU ARE!!!

COMING THROUGH!!!

 

Coming Screenshot 2016-04-05 at 11.59.55 PM Through

 

Believe that you are coming through this hot and dry season, it may not be fun, it may not be easy but it is all for a reason.

Your being prepared for that place of purpose, that place of destiny, from all the bondage your being loosed, you’re being set free, and free indeed.

The Spirit of God is with you every step of the way, so know that you’re not alone, our God is still on His throne, He’s shaping, molding you more and more to be here on earth, Jesus’ clone.

The game is already won, through the perfect, sinless life, death and Resurrection of our Heavenly Father’s only begotten Son.

The ultimate sacrifice that He made, the path to victory that He laid, even when victory seems non-existent, or delayed,

remember, you’re just,

 

COMING THROUGH!!!

 

Going through the wilderness to reach that place of promise is sometimes a must, despite the pain and discomfort, remaining in God’s will is the best place in the whole wide world to be and in that, you can trust, even when it seems as though your dreams, your plans has turned to dust.

Father knows best, He is “LOVE”, He is “TRUTH”, and He has invited the weary to come to Him so He can give us rest, so keep your eyes stayed on The Lord and you “WILL” past this test.

Our Lord will not leave you in this place, so you can keep your faith, know that God is there even when you can’t hear His voice, or see His face.

God the Father, His only begotten Son and His Holy Spirit is using even this to make you whole, make you new, it’s to His will, His word that We are to remain true, knowing that, in the mighty name of Jesus, “WE ARE”,

 

COMING THROUGH!!!

 

 

 

 

 

Jeremiah 29:11

Screenshot 2016-04-02 at 1.06.01 PM

For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace , and not evil, to give you an expected end.

 

Created With Peace In Mind!!!

 

Created by “LOVE” with thoughts of peace toward us, though sometimes it’s hard to believe, it’s hard to trust, in the midst of this world that’s filled with many distractions and so much lust.

Through it all “LOVE’S” desire is to bring us to HIS expected end, but oftentimes we stray away from “LOVE’S” given path, and “LOVE’S” rules, we tend to bend.

Thankfully “LOVE” is also mercy and grace, “LOVE” equips us, “LOVE” prepares us for that purposed place, It’s through “LOVE” that we are guaranteed victory at the end of this race.

So, don’t let go, but hold fast, only trust in that in which for eternity will last, moving forward step, by step forgetting those things which are in the past.

For, you were,

 

Created With Purpose In Mind!!!

 

Remember this when life is bitter and unkind, know that “LOVE’S” grace is new every morning, so we can continue pressing forward, not rewind.

Now is the time to get up and press toward the mark of the high prize, no more listening to the enemy, because all he speak is lies, your plan, your vision, all the enemy does is criticize.

But “LOVE” has given you an expected end, so when all else seems lost, it’s on “LOVE” that you can depend, He’s always here sticking closer than your closest friend.

Our Heavenly Father and Creator is “LOVE”, and His Holy Spirit has descended down upon you like a dove, empowering you to to fulfill that purpose which fits you like a glove.

The power lies within you to loose the devil’s bind, this Holy Power, nowhere else in the universe will you be able to find, but it is freely offered to us “ALL”, by HIM in which we were “ALL”

 

Created With Peace In Mind!!!

 

 

 

 

Philippians 3:13

image

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!!!

His Word Is Truth!!!

image

Believe it or not God’s word is “The Truth” , it can’t lie,
Heaen and Earth shall pass away, but the Word of God will never die,
though in killing this Word, the enemy and his team has given it one heck of a try.

Truth be told, this Truth is not always easy to comprehend,
so we do the very best that we can with it, no pretend,
walking by faith until the very end.

When we fall, we can get back up again not accepting defeat,
being true to God and ourselves, not covering up or lying, and not being a cheat,
This Truth is everywhere, right here with us, as well as on the right hand of our Heavenly Father where Truth has temporarily taken a seat.

So don’t be decieved by what may seem to be the absence of this Truth in this time, on this day,
it won’t be very long before Truth is witnessed by every man, women, boy and girl in such a mighty way,
don’t take my word for it, but rather dig into this Truth of God’s word and see for yourself all that it has to say,
and don’t forget to pray.

I have known this since I was but a youth,
but the closer we get to the end, the clearer I can see,
my God,

His Word Is Truth!!!

No Other Glory!!!

It’s in the glory of God that we obtain true contentment, it’s in “this glory” that our hearts are purged and become truly repentant,

in the glory of God is where we find grace, the glory of God will set us on high, after lifting us up out of that low place,

I’ve seen many imitations, and they were “ALL” with many limitations,

the glory that money seem to bring, position, power and prestige can all deliver a deadly sting,

there is one glory that’s everlasting and true, this glory is offered freely to me, and to you,

to live in peace and not worry, to fulfill our “God written” story, we need this, because there is;

No Other Glory!!!

Where Is The Love?

James 2:8

If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture. Thou shall love thy neihbor as thyself, ye do well.

Roamans 13:10

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

Ephesians 5:2

And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given Himself for us an offering and a sacriice to God for a sweet smelling savour.

Matthew 5:44

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…
