LIVE- LOVE- GIVE :)

Live-

Don’t become The Prodigal Son or Daughter-

But-

Live-

Live yourself chances,

create opportunities,

Live-

Live as though you will have no other moments to share

Live freely-

Love-

Love as though it’s the first and the last time you will love,

But Love-

Love with all your might,

Love as though you will never love again

Love til the finish-

Give-

Give whatever you can, when you can, wherever you can-

Seize the moment to give-

Give of your time, your resources,

But Give-

Its tells the world that you care-

and says I love you in ways no one will ever

dare to know,

But give-

Give your all-

Because the life you live, how deeply you love, and how freely you have given is what will be remembered…… ๐Ÿ™‚ Amen

HARVEY? IRMA? I DON’T KNOW

But Jesus speaks of these things in his word. He says that they are the beginning of sorrows….take heed. (Matthew 24)

You know what….someone asked me a question the other day and my answer to them was, “I don’t know.” So they proceeded to ask another question, and I said to them, “I don’t know.” So they asked again, and I said, “I don’t know.” I don’t know…..No one knows the answers to all the why’s.

Only God knows. He and he only knows the answers to the why’s that are unanswered in this life, but he left a lot of those answers in his Word. He said, “if you will seek you will find.” So the true question is are you seeking? If you are….. my answer is to check out his Word. You can do that by reading a Bible. (Matthew 7:7)

There are so many answers to life in it. So many answers to the questions you ask.
Join a Bible Study Group where you can learn about God and his Word. He says, “take my yoke upon you and learn of me, forย  I am meek and lowly in heart, and you shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden’s light” (Matthew 11:29)

My hope is that all who are affected sustain hope, and are restored a hundredfold.

God Bless ๐Ÿ™‚

BROKEN PIECES

Have you ever had a toy that you did not want to share? Well I have, and as a teacher of young children I have witnessed many fights over sharing a special toy. I have seen children get pretty violent over items during play. Yes. I did say violent. :/ Especially in a tug of war. Here is how it works

A child is in possession of a toy another child wishes to have, so they approach to try to take the toy, except the other child has a grip so tight that they pull it apart, only to respond with complete shock when the arm is ripped from the doll or wheel from the truck.

Now here is where you step in…Lol! They both look up at you crying and screaming to the top of their voices shouting, “he/she broke my toy!” ๐Ÿ™‚ Then they ask, “can you fix it” right before pulling one last time, and tearing off another part. ๐Ÿ™‚

Neither of them is even willing to admit that they were partakers in the destruction of their own toy. ๐Ÿ™‚ So you take the toy into your hands and try to repair it. Sometimes you are able to repair it and return it back to its true owner, and at other times you’re not. The damage is done and the consequences are brutal.

Well friend so it is in life. There are times we just can’t fix the broken. We have to give it to God and walk away! Only God can fix what is broken in our lives, most times when we try to fix it, we only rip apart more pieces, but if we put our lives in his hand he will mend what is broken, and put our pieces back together again. Why don’t you let him fix your broken pieces. He can do it! Try him and find out for yourself. Amen ๐Ÿ™‚

HOW ARE YOU WALKING?

I woke up feeling grateful for everything in my life. It took a while for me to get to this place though, I have always wanted to fix everything that is broken. However this place of peace I could not have bought to myself. It has become the norm for me. When you are walking in peace you are in a place of contentment regardless of the storm in your life or your environment.

It is understanding that God is God of the storm. It is to relinquish what you think to be self power into the hands of God, allowing him to control your actions and quiet your spirit. (Mark4:39, KJV)

Yes…..it is self discipline. ๐Ÿ™‚ While retrain is difficult, it teaches you to control negative reactions, particularly in places of discomfort, because it is human nature to respond to discomfort or hurt. We want to feel comfortable at all times, and when there are disturbances we want to immediately put them to rest. ๐Ÿ™‚

However there are times when God wants us to take our hands off of our situation. He wants us learn to remain peaceful in the midst of our pain.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ It is not until we learn this lesson that we truly can walk in faith.,ย  it is to know that he is in control, and not we ourselves. (Philippians 4:12)

So friend I would say to you if you are walking in discontentment, could it perhaps be because you are trying to interrupt what God is doing? Could it be you have not completely let go and placed your situation into the hands of God? If so….why don’t you yield, and let God have his way with it. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. Amenย  ๐Ÿ™‚

THE NIGHT WATCH

(Luke 10:20) Jesus said to them rejoice not that the spirits are subject to you but rather rejoice that your name is written in heaven.

I will write this as limited in word as possible, but I had a very disturbing conversation with someone last night. They said they were just calling to talk.ย  They seemed fine in the beginning, but then the conversation turned and they begin to express feelings of ending it. That’s right…..I am talking about life.

I said to them, “I can not stop you from ending your life if that’s what you want to do, but God has you here for a reason and you have so much to live for…..whatever your issue allow me to pray with you.”

They did…..so I begin to pray, and I actually felt their deliverance as I begin to speak the word of God over their life. This person was spiritually broken, and as they begin to weep I felt the torments ofย  their mind and emotions begin to lift.

Their release and recovery had begun as God began to build the bridge back to him. I really felt God move with compassion for this person. I believe they got their deliverance. I thank God that I answered the phone call and for the opportunity to be a light in darkness.

Spirits are real folks, but even they must submit to the God we serve.ย  I count it all joy to serve a living God. Amen

WINNING

Hey Ya’ll-

I hope everybody had a wonderful three-day weekend! It’s back to the grind as we prepare for the next approaching holiday. I can’t even imagine saying that word….holiday! Wow! So soon! :/ย  In the meantime football season is here….Yay! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Let the games begin.

Anyway….my holiday ended with a drive to Centennial Park. I just wanted to go downtown and do a little people watching. Well when I got down there people where walking around everywhere in football gear waving team paraphernalia. It kinda of shocked me.

I normally check to see if there are any special events scheduled in an area before I travel on the roads, however yesterday I did not! When I tell you Georgia Tech and Tennessee had taken over Marietta Street and CNN Center.

They had a Game and everybody was ready to cheer their team to Victory! If I may I’d like to ask….who’s team are you on? Are you on the side of Victory or are you standing on the side of eternal loss. (Joshua 24:15)ย  I know my team player’s, and we are prepared for the Win! The good book has already proclaimed Victory for those of us who choose to serve God.

Sort of reminds me of Elijah when he challenged the prophets of baal and gave them opportunity to prove whether or not their god had any authority or power, well we know the the ending to that story, Right…. if not you can read here-(1 King 18:36)

Our God had already proven himself to be the one and only God. We know our God is all powerful. He reigns Victoriously. I am on a winning team!! What about you?ย  Will you choose to serve the gods of the world or the God who created it. The choice is definitely up to you. Choose wisely.ย  As for me and my house, we are SOULED OUT!ย  Amen

SOAR

Soar……

Take up the wings of an eagle and soar-

Soar to the highest mountain top-

Stand on mountains peek

Tell the world it belongs to you-

That is just what you should do-

If I push you, you will think it not fair

Go on your own-

Fly-

Climb the golden stair-

Go get your mountain

Take what belongs to you

Don’t you know life will use you and bury you when it’s threw-

If I push you, you’ll think it not fair-

Go claim your mountain-

Find your golden stair

That’s the tone in my voice-

The clap in my hands-

The twist of my face-

The draw in my sand-

SOAR………

Soar to the highest mountain-

Tell the world it belongs to you-

Soarย  to the the highest peek-

Tell the world I conquered you-

Take up the wings of an eagle and soar-

My hope is that you find your WINGS and FLY- ๐Ÿ™‚

PERFECT DAY! PERFECT YOU! :)

I am celebrating today because today is perfect, even though it’s raining it’s perfect in all it’s splendor. There are no mistakes in today., No mistakes in the time it begin to rain, or no mistakes in the timing of trains that block the roads to adjoining streets.

No mistakes in the timing of lights or stop signs, nope, no mistakes. ย No mistakes in the time I awakened to greet mornings silence or the glimmer of light ย just outside my window, or the thoughts that cloud my mind, nope….No mistakes. No mistakes in the time I left my home this morning or the phone call that was delayed, No Mistakes. ๐Ÿ™‚

You see…..even the smallest of things were purposed to be and guess what friend, believe it or not, there are no mistakes in you. God created you perfectly. he knew who you were even before you made entrance into this world, and even though there are interferences in how we think of ourselves, we must realize that God created us perfectly.

We are uniquely designed. We each have something perfect to offer. I am what you are not and vise versa. Our skill set is intentional. We were created perfectly, so perfectly that one can not operate without the other. We need each other to survive ๐Ÿ™‚

This is not to imply that we can not improve ourselves, but rather a message of acceptance of self. So next time the voices come to steal your self worth with words of inadequacies, take a good look in the mirror and tell yourself that there are NO MISTAKES in you. God created you PERFECTLY! AMEN. ๐Ÿ™‚
