Life is funny. Good things happen and bad things happen. We do not always understand but we have to trust God is in control.
Sometimes we do not make the best decisions but God still loves us. Do not give up on yourself. Keep the faith. Live on purpose, walk in your purpose, and trust the process, no matter how painful.
God is good!!! God is great!!! He is worthy of ALL our praises, even when you do not feel you have a praise left.
Life happens. Stay strong in the Lord.
I am so ready to go worship in the house of the Lord this morning!! No, I don't wait until I get to church to worship, I worship wherever I am, but to be with a group of believers, on one accord!!!! Just worshiping Him for who he is!! Not asking for anything, just recognizing He is mighty and giving Him all the honor and glory He deserves!!!
I am not ashamed of my belief that God sent His only begotten Son to die for me, I make that confession with my mouth, and I believe in my heart, His Son, Jesus, was raised from the dead for me. I believe Jesus is now sitting on the right side of His Father interceding on my behalf!!
Worship!!! Yes, I am so ready to get with a group of baptized believers so that our praises may collective be a sweet aroma to God!!! Just because He is God!!!
Are you ready??
Psalms 100, Psalms 150, Psalms 122:1
Just because we are Christians, does not mean we don't get pissed. I was at a pissed level the wee hours of the morning, not mad, not angry, but truly at a new level of pissed. Some friends texted me through it. They encouraged me. They laughed with me. They cried with me. They talked me through it. They even got a little "pissed" with me.
The enemy is so busy, right now. But greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world. When I say I was feeling so.... I can't even put into words how I was feeling. I am glad that I posted we all pray for each other on yesterday. I hope you guys prayed for me, because I prayed for you!!
My flesh want to do something, I want to react..... but I know I have to wait on God.
My flesh want to solve this matter, my way..... but I know I have to trust God.
My flesh want to call it quits, what is the point... but I know I serve a God that never sleeps.
My flesh want to "not care".... but I know I serve a God who cares for me.
Yes, the enemy is busy.... but God still sits on the throne.
There is nothing impossible for Him.
I just encouraged myself. I pray it encourages others, as well.
Today, I want to keep my mind stayed on him and not the situation.
Today, I want to mediate on scripture and not entertain the foolishness.
Today, I am going to lift it up to God, and let it go. ( I preached that sermon earlier this year)
Today, I am going to walk in the peace of God.
Today, I realize I am only responsible for how I react, my actions, not the actions or poor decisions of others.
I am ready to face this day.... with my Father all around me...
Psalms 23, Philippians 4: 6-13, Proverbs 3:5-6, Ephesians 6:10-18

I was viewing the weather today in my city. Not anything grand, but as I was checking the weather, I saw my city. Now I have lived in this city for a few years now, maybe bout 7, and it never dawned on me. I live in LOVEJOY!! Today God spoke to me, not only do I live in LOVE JOY, but I am in the spiritual place of LOVEJOY!! Hallelujah!!!
It took me a minute to get there, probably why He never let me see it until now. But I can truly say I am in a place of LOVE and JOY. I love God, myself, and others. Even when they do not love me.. Sometimes loving others can be difficult, especially when they talk about you, come up against you, or spitefully use you. But I know a God that is greater than any person, spirit, or demon that will come up against me.
Is my life perfect? NOOOOOOOOOO, but I have a joy like no other because I know who I am and I know who holds my tomorrow in His Hands.
So my question to you, today? Where are you? Are you stuck in depression? Are you stuck in mediocre? Are you stuck in pain? Are you stuck in hurt? Are you stuck in confusion? Are you stuck in fear?
Move to where God want you to be. He did not create you for those things! Search the scriptures, read what He has left for you. Go through the process, knowing you are not going through it alone. He is with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.
The joy of the Lord is your strength.
James 1:2-3, Romans 15:13, Nehemiah 8:10
Get ready for a life changing revelation, this week. This week as you walk on purpose and walk in your purpose, pay attention.
All things are working for your good!
It is turning around in your favor!
Give all the glory to your Savior!
Give all thanks to your Intercessor!
Give all praise to your Redeemer!
What will you do today?
Will it make a difference?
Will you help someone along the way?
Will you share a smile?
Will you pay it forward?
How many of us have made plans today? What if God lead you another direction?
What will you do?
I pray we have prayed God's Will over the day. I pray we are open to receive what He has for us today. I pray we will do whatever He tells us today.
Speak Lord, your servants are listening.
Anybody else have a shout in their spirit???!!! I sure do!!!
Take a moment to give God the best praise you have!!
Not because of the things you have, but because He is so good!!
The creator of everything!!
The great I AM!! Jehovah!! The First and the Last!!
There is no other greater than our Lord!!
Glory Hallelujah!!! Hallelujah!!
Do you have a shout in your spirit?
God allows me to pour out everyday. He refills me daily. I am a willing vessel for Him, everyday.
Today I have a concern, an issue, and I am requesting your help. I am asking for words of encouragement for my concern. I was prostate this morning, asking God to make it plain. I am faced with several concerns in my ministry and my personal life. I will not give the details because God knows.
I am curious to who HE will use today to give me that "One Word".
Let me tell you my obstacles: my fear of making an awful mistake, walking outside of His will, and some areas of my past, where I know I was truly out of His will.
Let me tell you what I have heard so far: Be still. Be of good courage. Faith the size of a mustard seed.
So, what do you say to me? How can you encourage me today? What " One Word" would you give me?
Thank you in advance. If you know the power of prayer, please pray with and for me, prayerfully a praise report is on the way!!!
Don't get in the boat and paddle if you not making it to shore....
What am I saying?
When God said it, it will come to pass.
He told you what he wanted you to do and you answered, yes.
But now that you are in the boat paddling, and a strong wind has come, you forgot about the shore.
You forgot about the destination.
You forgot who is in the boat with you.
Have faith. Repeat... HAVE FAITH....
God is not a man that he would lie... He told you and that cancels out any doubt or fears.
He did not tell you it was a one day journey,
He just told you to journey on the sea of "HIS WILL".
Keep paddling. Your shore is waiting.
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
