Hold Fast…

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

The Lord does not delay [as though He were unable to act] and is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is [extraordinarily] patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.

2 Peter 3:9 AMP

Be Thankful

Sunday, September 25th, 2016

God’s Grace saved me. God’s Mercy rewrote my life.
“My Savior, my Healer, my Deliverer”

Listen folks, we are saved by grace. And for that, I’m so grateful. But we must allow the Blood of Jesus, the Work of The Cross, to continue to take us further. Don’t stop, keep pressing in for more.

I Stand

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

I stand #amazed…
Thinking on the Goodness of God,
His Mercy and His Grace.
I can only imagine how things will be,
as the Church stands and takes it’s rightful place.
No longer cowering in fear, agreeing with the ‘world’s’ view… but to begin to look and see others as God says we should do.

I can NOT jump on the band wagon of hate…sealing the fate of many. I refuse to follow the trend. I believe that God desire that we rise above it all. How?
•By keeping His Word at the center of our heart and on our lips.
•By walking in love.
•By respecting life.. authority..
•By walking in INTEGRITY.
•By representing Him daily.

CHURCH….GUARD YOUR HEART!
Be very careful about allowing yourselves to be drawn into battle with the flesh. Learn to quiet yourselves in prayer (calming your spirit) as we prepare for the battle of our lives)
Know this:
•This battle is real.
•The enemy is real.

But, focus on this:
“OUR GOD is greater than all!”
So I’m not gonna worry, not gonna live my life in fear. We are in the ARMY OF GOD. HE goes before us daily. I’m following His Lead. I will not fear… I will not flinch… Our God is able, He will protect us. As we step out according to His Word and Instruction, He will perform it for us. He is Faithful!

We must honor His Word in our heart and not sin against it. No sloppy, slothful life will secure our protection. Every idle word spoken will be recorded… and you will be held accountable.
•GUARD your mouth.
•GUARD your heart.
•GUARD your actions.
The key is “you”. You’re responsible, the blame stops with YOU!

I’m praying…
“Lord, keep me in the correct lane. Keep me in the center of Your Will. Purify my heart. Lead me daily. Let the words of my mouth, and the meditations of my heart be pleasing unto THEE.”

Onward, Upward, and Higher

God Keeps Fighting For Us

Monday, September 19th, 2016

Just spent a little time in prayer, thanking God for His Goodness to me and to my crew.

He keeps watching out for us, even when we don’t do such a good job for ourselves. I keep thinking about the many times that He has stepped in and saved my ‘bacon’. I’m sure if you take a moment you will agree…

I could never praise Him enough. Somehow, He ALWAYS comes through. Here are some things that I’m learning:
Trust God with all your heart
Take Him at His Word, He’s on your side
Keep Dreaming
Keep Believing
Never, ever draw back
Surround yourself with folks who intend on going forward with God.

Foremost folk, ALL my help comes from The Father above. So, if you need healing or deliverance go directly to HIM.
GOD IS….
•My Protector
•My Healer
•My Saviour
•My Redeemer
•My EVERYTHING.

DON’T limit God.
He knows what you need, and even what you desire. He desires to bless you. Get in line for your blessing today. Position yourself to receive.

Onward, Upward, and Higher

A Praying Spirit

Friday, September 16th, 2016

“Today, let praise make you stable and strong. Put that faith in your heart into action. Look for reasons to thank God. As you do, you’ll feel that inner strength and be empowered to move forward into victory all the days of your life.” (Joel O.)

Had a little trouble getting to sleep last night, and then I got to thinking on the Goodness of God.
Just had a thought that I wanted to share:
As we go through our day we often, tend to forget the blessings…
I tend to take time praying for my family, my church, and my nation. There are times when I’m very intent. There are times when I feel myself getting ‘relaxed’ in this area as well. I think we all have a tendency to lighten up when things seem to be going well. And then, we receive a tiny alarm.

Now I’m leaning towards ‘a praying spirit’ throughout the day. Lord help me to develop a consistent and heartfelt prayer life. Let my life be firmly grounded on His Word.
