As the song says “As good as God has been to me I can’t afford not to bless His name”
Things are not how I would desire them to be but they are not how they use to be. God has and is still so good to me, my family and friends. HE has been better to me than I could or would ever be to myself. He causes the sun to shine, the moon to light the dark nights, and the wind to blow my troubles away. HE continues to keep me from dangers seen and unseen. He continues to provide grace and mercy and it’s new on a daily basis. HE continues to give me beautiful flowers to smell along my journey and beautiful art as I look toward the skies. God bailed me out of a troubled past, a prison of what folk think of me and how I felt about myself. I am no longer the same. I’m not perfect but I’m promised perfection. I’m not flawless but I’m promised a future of no blemish, spots or wrinkles. I’m not rich but I’m promised riches and houses of royalty that I didn’t even build. What a mighty God we serve. I’m thankful for it all. The good definitely out ways the bad and I have no room or tolerance to complain.
As for me and my house, we WILL serve the LORD.
I continue to learn as I continue to listen.
God does and says things the way HE sees fit. I want God to just outright talk to me and let me know whats what so I can get this thing right. I get tired of being up one day and down the next three. I don’t question God’s existence but His motives of my existence. It’s crazy I know but just when I felt I couldn’t take another moment of anger God spoke
“And behold a woman diseased with an issue of blood twelve years came behind ME and touched the hem of my garment. She said within herself if she could only touch the hem she would be made whole. She pushed past everything and touched My hem. I turned to her and expressed her faith made her whole. Her persistence, her belief, her moving pass every obstacle to get to the source, made her complete that very hour.
And behold a ruler came explaining his daughter died but for Me to lay hands on her and she shall live. I went to the ruler’s home and the people stood there crying. They mourned hard for their loved one but I told them have faith, she is not dead but sleeping. They laughed, even tried to scorn Me. So I removed the naysayers and disbeliever from amongst Me and went into the room, grabbed the girl’s hand and she arose. And her fame spread abroad into all the lands. So blind men came next and I simply asked them if they believed. They both answered yes and I touched their eyes but faith opened them to see. Then a dumb man possessed with evil came. He couldn’t even speak but had faith to believe. Evil was cast far from him and he spoke and marvelled the multitude.
I’ve heard your cry and answered you but you didn’t understand. When will you say within yourself that if you could just touch My hem you will be made whole? It starts when you get negativity far from you so that I can move on your behalf. Faith operates, fear separates. I can’t work miracles without you working faith. The harvest is plenteous, but the labourers are few. You want the blessings but not the work associated. Your time is NOW there’s no need for delay. It’s dark but keep allowing ME to lead you. Close your eyes and relax because I’m carrying you. Now remove the old thoughts, habits, talk, hurts and open your eyes to NEWNESS. It’s all around you! Your faith has made you whole”
For behold the old has passed away and all things are made new.
Who will you believe?
Scripture teaches that even Jesus didn’t want to do certain task but because of His love for the Father He obeyed. Because of His trust He took action.
There’s someone reading this right now who God has given a specific task to do but your fear has caused doubts. The doubts have caused you to become stagnant, paralyzed and powerless. You feel like you’ve waited to long, it’s to late, that God has moved on and given your blessing to someone else. That’s not true! What God has for you is ONLY for you. Your name is written all over it and if anyone else tries to touch, taint or take it they will fail. God designed your blessing so that you alone will benefit. What are you waiting for?
God has given you the green light, why haven’t you jumped?
If you will offer up the suffering that you have endured I will honor your sacrifice, and it will become a sweet fragrance to Me.
I received this message early morning and I’ve been pondering over it since. I feel all I do is offer my suffering for God to take care of and turn it into joy but this message indicates suffering will become honored sacrifice and smell of sweet fragrance to God. Now here’s where my confusion comes in to play, if I’m doing these things why am I not getting the second half, the beauty, of this message? I have the suffering and sacrifice down pack, as I’m sure some of you do as well but where’s the honor and the possibility of our sacrifice becoming sweet and making God take notice?
I had to go to The Source for clarification’
“I say unto you this day and everyday going forth, My word will not return to Me void. Each place I send it, it produces, it speaks, it works, it is so! If you would consider the simple things you will finally reap the big harvest. I only ask that you change your perception, the way you think, the way you see it, the way you feel about it determines everything. I’ve asked repeatedly that you believe, don’t doubt. I’ve asked repeatedly that you think differently. I’ve given you power in your position, power to create what you desire things be. You don’t give Me your suffering. You give me the problem and your resolution. Giving Me your suffering requires you letting go completely. You have to believe harder than you suffer. You’re here on purpose and I’ve just placed you in position. Now watch the miracle in meeting Me and giving me all of you!”
I believe, I let go and now I’ll sit back and receive all God has for me. Are you willing to let it all go to get God’s anointed flow?
There’s nothing like knowing everything is going to be alright.
Just in case you don’t believe me you can hear it from Chante Moore, reality star of R & B Divas, as she serenades you. It’s a beautiful treat I promise! The words are from my heart to yours. I pray it reaches you right where you need it. There’s nothing to hard or no obstacle you can’t overcome and not even a problem God can’t make alright. Let’s continue to show love to one another. Don’t be afraid of others who are different from you. That’s what God wanted and created. You have variety, diversity, choices, so why be afraid or better yet why believe in God. GOD IS LOVE and love comes in variety, diversity, choices, that’s why there’s no picture in the dictionary; it’s nothing you can capture but yet you can show it. Think about that….
Let’s choose to show love through this hard time for some and same ole same ole time for others. Either way, love is needed and just because it’s needed God is supplying it. That’s how I know it’s going to be alright!
We’re in this thing together . Let’s stay together and grow together. I promise it’ll be alright!
Thank you God for everything!
I know it seems dark at this moment. It seems as if there is no hope, like all is lost. It seems as if one more thing happens you’re going to break. I know what you mean. I’m there with you but we are not alone. God is always with us. Even if we were to make our beds in hell, God will still be with us. You don’t believe me? Well, have you ever sinned? And you’re here to tell about it, yeah God was with you. You and I could have easily died in our sins, bad choices, hellish actions, whatever you want to call it, but we are here in fellowship together. And because we are here today means we have time to set into motion a better tomorrow. We may not all get to see the “promise land” but we can make sure it’s here for our children and children’s children to see.
Truly it appears we are living in a dark hour and we are without hope but that’s because we are looking at it without God. Without God we see smoke screens and fogged images. We see millions of mirrors all reflecting the same dark image. We see war and terrorism with no resolution of any peaceful union. Without God we see our power is a minimum of none while the wicked has all the power, authority, leadership and pretty much rules the earth. Without God we see we are without hope but that’s because we are looking at it without God.
With God in the equation the blinders come off and the fog and smoke disappears. You will see certain things had to and have to happen to avoid bigger issues. You will see resolution before you see war. You will see war is overcome with love. With God you see what the wicked has in store and you realize you’re sorry for them and began to have love and compassion. You will see love is power over any authority, leadership, or anyone or thing that names itself power. You will see God is in control and making BIG moves with little effort, so to some it may seem He’s not doing anything but it’s nothing to HIM. He is God! With God you see hope, joy, peace, kindness and mirrors of light all reflecting a brighter image. Now you’re looking at things the right way.
God is in control. Look at HIM work!
