Life Is An Expression Of God’s Artistry!!!

The entire world and everything within it is God’s canvas to display His mastery of art, though, my God didn’t create mankind to be robots; therefore it’s up to us as individuals to surrender that artist’s brush; from it, be willing to part

Placing it in the Hand of “The Creator of The Universe”. allowing Him to paint the picture of our lives, intricately, gracefully, according to His divine plan, see, every vision, every dream, every gift, every skill, every talent that we posses was given to us to be expressions of God’s artistry

The Master’s artistry openly displayed, just as crafty and precise as the waters of the deep and the firmament that He laid

Not to mention the birds, the bee’s, the mountains, the trees,

The sun, the moon, the stars, the clouds; the rain, the wind, the snow, and my artistic God is still creating today, because scientist even say: the universe continues to expand, it continues to grow

Yet, mankind is our artistic Heavenly Father’s most precious creation, and He made a promise in His Word that He will continue the Good Work in which He has begun to do within us, until our Lord’s return, though we must surrender the brush, then our spirit’s will experience less confusion, less vexation

Surrender is key, therefore believe and receive,

In A Moment, In The Twinkling Of The Eye!!!

My Lord is “The” Lord of Lord’s, He’s “The” King of Kings, He put on flesh and visited this earth, once as a sacrificial lamb, though His return is eminent, He “Will” come again in His rightful position and glory to rectify all things

Every generation of those of us who believe, believed their generation would be the one to actually witness Jesus’ return, what I will say is, we’re definitely closer today than we were yesterday, and watching the world events of today, as well as studying The Word of God daily, strengthens my faith so that against the waywardness of this world my resolve may be stern,

No one knows the exact day, or the hour, but, we were told of some very telling signs to watch for by God Himself who in just one hand holds “All” power,

These signs that are clearly seen are increasing more and more, leaving me to believe, Jesus has risen from His seat at the Right Hand of The Father and has begun preparing to once again exit through Heavens door

He told us, regarding His coming again, be vigilant, He told us, regarding “His” Kingdom’s Business, be diligent

See we have an enemy, an adversary who’s a destroyer, a thief and a lair who wants us to believe his every lie, he definitely don’t want us to believe that Jesus “Is Coming Back”

What’s Left!!!

What’s Left!!!

I’ve lost material goods, I’ve lost people whom I though would be in my life for the rest of my life, I’ve lost so, so much of myself; but, I know deep down in my soul, I’ve lost nothing that my Heavenly Father intended for me to keep, I realize, most of what was lost were weights that hindered my ability to take this God ordained Quantum Leap

I don’t have a whole lot left to work with, but what I do have, I place it in the hands of my God who has taken, just a little oil from a widow mother (who was “WILLING” to give her last) and turned it into overflow, (2 Kings 4:2)  see, there are times when God will require us to let go, though, not to punish us, rather that, in Him we may build, in Him we may move forward, in Him we may grow

I serve a God who created the Heavens, who created the earth and all that’s in it, (Psalm 89:11) He’s even the God of science, and, the devil himself, who comes to steal, kill and destroy; when he know he can’t have our soul, he settle for our joy

Which in my opinion is Grand Theft, thankfully I serve a God who’s a master of turning tragedy into triumph when we are willing to give Him,

What’s Left!!!

For Me!!!

For Me!!!

It was for me that, from Heaven to earth my Savior came, He’s Lord of lord’s, King of king’s, He is “The Christ” and Jesus is His name

Though He was perfect in ALL His ways, He suffered the harsh penalty of my sins and transgression, He left behind His Holy Spirit to empower me to overcome the spirits of loneliness, isolation and depression

He lead me step by step, taking me from glory, to glory, to glory; before my mother and father even knew one another, my God knew my name, He had already began to write my story

I am His, He is mine, so my victory rest, not so much in what I do, but in what my Lord has already done, it’s through that Agape Love of my Heavenly Father and His only begotten Son that I can BOLDLY confess: the game of life, for me, is already won

So come; taste and see, my God is no respecter of persons, meaning: He will do for you what He has done

For Me!!!

Time!!!

Time!!!

Time awaits no one, and once time passes by, the opportunities afforded us in that particular moment in time, rest only in the memory bank of our mind, therefore, it’s our time which our enemy wants to steal away and keep bound, but it’s also our time in which our Lord and Savior came to unbind

Though our time is not to be wasted, because when it’s gone, it’s not coming back, this is why we should seize every opportunity, in every moment in time, with a strong hand, not a hand that’s slack

In order to seize these opportunities preparation is key, and preparations are made when we spend time daily in The Word of God, also known as: The Good News, it’s in God’s Word that our spirit is lifted into a rainbow of colorful bliss, out of spiritual blues, it’s in God’s Word that we obtain the faith to receive the true fact that through Jesus Christ our Lord, the battle is already won, so through it all, we know, ultimately, regarding the enemy, he loose

He already know, he lost the war, over two thousand years ago, so

When we choose to wholeheartedly follow our Lord and Savior, Satan knows, at that point our soul is no longer an option for him, so he digress, he set his focus on keeping us from being the salt and light, (Matt. 5:13-16) he wants to keep us busy, distracted, hearts focused on self, and the treasures found in the darkness of night

He wants to steal away our time and keep us from doing the True Works of our Lord and His Kingdom; of this charge I am most guilty, so I repent; and praise, honor and glorify my Lord, I WILL DO, because, it’s because of my shortcomings, inadequacies and inconsistencies that He was sent

I am His, He is mine, with His eternal, Righteous Blood He purchased my soul; this is “The Good News”, because as a result, I’ve been acquitted of every sin, every crime, therefore I declare, I decree, in the Mighty name of Jesus: Satan, I will not give you any more of my

Step By Step!!!

Step By Step!!!

My God has brought me a long way from where I started, mountains have been moved, and sea’s have parted

Though, to reach that place of destiny, it seems I still have a long road ahead, and discouragement creeps in when I set my gaze on the finish line; therefore I focus on my very next step instead

Meditating on The Word of God continually, so that, in Gods Word my steps may be ordered one at a time, it’s God’s Word through which I’m empowered to move forward regardless how steep the climb, even when it seem as though the climb has turned into a deep decline

My God can use any and every situation to make it work for my good, there’s lessons to be learned even when I fall short, when I don’t do as I should

When I think I see a short cut, and impatiently step off of God’s divine path, though it doesn’t take me long to do the math, to realize I’ve stepped in a direction leading to God’s wrath

Then I step back in line, with patience, and a renewed will to endure, knowing that the promises within God’s Word are true, and in The Word of God, I can stand sure

Knowing; my God is always on time, He’s never late, and He never allow anything to go to waste, He uses even the blood, sweat and tears that fall upon my plate

My God somehow, someway, miraculously use even my deepest pains for my own good, while simultaneously developing an eternal smile of glory on my face, see, I must be totally broken, which brings about a sense of humility, which allows The Spirit of my God to lead me into that destined place

Everyday there’s a spiritual battle going on within me, and everyday I’m realizing more and more that my enemy’s promises are not fulfilling at all, but rather hollow, and I get better at, not just hearing that still, small voice of God, but possessing The Holy Spirit’s power to follow

Step By Step!!!

In The Hands Of God; It’s Never Wasted!!!

My time is in God’s hands, His thoughts are higher than mine, His ways are much better, therefore I must surrender to His perfect plans, I must resist my sinful flesh enticing demands, while seeking my God daily for His peace-filled, most effective commands

Though reaching this place was no easy task, perpetually, in the ambiance of my Father’s presence I bask

See, even now if I look at life through the lens of the natural eye, my heart would cry, I’ve wasted so much time chasing an empty dream, listening to the devil’s lie

I digress, it’s Jesus name, His will and His way that I confess, my Lord has a way of redeeming the time, making all things new and cleaning up my mess

There are promises written in The Word of God for me, and for you too, Romans 8:28 tells us: “ALL” things work together for good to those who love God, those who are called according to His purpose… My God can manifest His purpose in us and through us despite what we have done, despite what we do

The meat of God’s Word, “I’VE TASTED”, now I know, that I know, that I know,

In The Hands Of God; It’s Never Wasted!!!

Not My Will, Not My Way

Not My Will, Not My Way

 

Life never seem to happen as I see it should, never really as I’ve planned, but as long as I’m in God’s will, I can stand

The eyes of my faith are not as foggy as they once were; in my heart The Father’s only begotten Son has risen, burning away the fog, so I can walk by faith even when I can’t naturally see clear, even when the voice of the enemy is speaking loudly in my ear

My Heavenly Father is revealing to me; His way is better than mine, on the other side of every frustration or disappointment I’ve witnessed God manifest within me a spiritual peace, a inner shine

Now I’m able to wholeheartedly say:

Not My Will, Not My Way

I know, that I know, that I know; God’s not dead, and I trust every word my God has said.

I trust the fact; Father knows best, I believe, I receive, in my Father’s will is total and complete rest

So it’s in Him that I live, move and have my being, no longer moved by what my natural eyes see, but it’s through the eyes of faith that I’m now seeing

This walk of faith is by no means easy, I need the power of God’s Spirit dwelling within me, I need a spiritual ear to hear the words my Heavenly Father’s still, small voice has spoken, the word’s that He may even now say, therefore I need to daily commune and fellowship with Him, I need always to pray, then I can, for the glory set before me boldly say,

Not My Will, Not My Way

Seasons Of The Unknown!!!

 

Life has many seasons, warm and dry seasons, cold and wet seasons, seasons when we know exactly where we’re going, and seasons of the unknown, It’s the unknown seasons that are the hardest of them all, when we can’t see because of the thick fog, we stumble, sometimes even fall, the blustery winds blow when we feel most uncovered, wide open, no protection, no wall, the feeling of hopelessness begin to set in, then, we call out to God, and seemingly, He’s not even answering our call

We cry out: Lord, how long? Lord, what did I do wrong? I really need You Lord, because in this season I’m not feeling very strong

Lord, I really need to know, from here, what do I do, where do I go? and breakthrough still don’t show

I guess this is what faith is all about, so it’s in faith that I will stand as a deeply rooted tree, I will not doubt, digging deeper within to find strength, so praise to my Lord I can sing and shout, I refuse to mope, I refuse to pout

Trusting, believing that even in this season God’s glory “WILL” be shown, knowing, that through it all my Lord is still sitting on His Throne, and I’m His, He is mine even when the enemy refuse to leave me alone, even in the,

How Would We Know

How Would We Know

How would we know God as a Deliverer if we were never bound, how would we know Jesus as the Way if we were never lost with a need to be found, and if we never found ourselves at the foot of that big ol’ mountain going round and round

How would we know our Lord as the Prince of Peace if we were never shaken, if we never experienced a little fear, as a Healer if our hearts were never wounded and we never had to shed a tear

How would we know our Father as Love if we never witnessed the enemy’s hate, how would we know God as an on time God if we move in our own will fearing that, regarding His promises, God is running behind, He’s late, when God wants us to be still and know, and on Him faithfully, patiently wait

How would we know God as a Provider if we never had a need, how would we know Him as the Producer of fruit if we never planted seed, how would we even know what to expect from God if we never picked up God’s Word to read, and posses the willingness to follow His Holy Spirit’s lead

How Would We Know
