A True Friend Will Tell You the Truth

A True Friend will always tell you the truth.
 
The Word of God tells us that to be a friend we must show ourselves friendly. When we care for people, or when we establish a relationship on any level, trust Must be one of the common denominators. When I open the door for a friendship, it is always with the hope of not being hurt or disappointed, but that doesn't mean that hurt or trying times won't enter the equation. However as the relationship grows, certain levels are ascertained on both sides.

Lord, Make Me Over

Lord Make me Over
 
That is my request today. That was in the teaching today by Prophet Laron Matthews today. "Lord make me over", so I can be your reflection in the world. When you look in the mirror, what do you see, who do you see? Do you see the labels that have been placed upon you by the world’s standards? Or do you see yourself as a child of righteousness, a Child of the King? How you see yourself determines just how far you will go in this life. Perception is everything. How you see yourself is the determining factor to your success.

Grateful

Oh Lord, I'm so grateful. I forgot to pray today, but you didn't forget to bless me and keep me from hurt harm and danger. I forgot to pray over my food, but you kept me from food poisoning. When I reached work late, I forgot to thank you for traveling mercies, yet you allowed me to reach my destination safely, and not get a pink slip. Wow Lord, I forgot to say thank you for my children reaching school safely and returning home safely, I didn't pray with my spouse, or let the...m know how much I love them, yet you allowed them to reach home so we could embrace and have some "Me Time", Thank you Lord. You look out for me even when you aren't in the forefront of my mind. I'm Grateful, that I have a God who watches out for me unconditionally. Forgive me for taking advantage of your unmerited grace and favor. I will do better Lord. Starting with this word of thankfulness.. again I am truly grateful. in Jesus name. Amen.

I Say Yes Lord Once Again

Lord I thank you for yet another day. What can I render or offer for all your benefits to me. The best thing I can give you is all of me. Today, I say Yes to you again. Help me to be a blessing to others, and not just to myself. Help me to have a heart that is after your own heart. Help me to follow your ways, and not man's ways. I want to please you Lord. As I continue to die to my flesh, my wants an desires, may I always remember that its all about the Kingdom. You have a p...urpose and plan for my life. May I seek you out daily to discover your will for my life, the Lord Why am I Here for my life. If I'm not trying to edify the Kingdom, let others know that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand, witness, encourage, pray for, lay hands, raise the dead, then am falling short of what you asked your disciples to do. I say Yes Lord and I'm yours every day. Not just when its convenient or when I find myself in need. Yes Lord.

Its Not How You Start but How You Finish

Its not how you start, but how you finish... When life hits, keep pressing forward, you aren't standing alone. God is with you. When the flesh wants to dominate, put it under subjection, What you feed shall live and what you starve will die. We have been given 2 choices in life. 1. To live 2. To die. Every day our actions denote our choices. Who we lend our members to, that's who we serve. If at the end of the day, you have not added something to the life of another, we have fallen short of our duties as a "Christian." Why do I say that, because spreading the love Jesus Christ died for is a sure sign that we are His disciples. We are no longer our own but purchased with a price. Make a difference in someone's life today. Tell someone Jesus Loves them, Remind them that God so loved the world tha he gave his only begotten Son.... (John 3:16) Tell someone that the wages of sin is death, but the Gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord.

Standing Flawed before a Flawless God

The more I come to know how flawed I am, The more I recognize the Goodness, Grace and Mercy of God. Trying to cross every T and dot every I is an impossible task for one to master independently. However through Jesus Christ, we have the opportunity to press towards the mark with each new day given. Its not over until God says its over. I'm living By His Grace and At His Mercy.

Is Something or Someone Rubbing You the Wrong Way?

Before you miss your blessing, consider that there is always another perspective you don't see. That situation or person is a vehicle to helping you become a better you. (in the natural and spiritual).  God doesn't waste anything... He said that All Things are working together for your good, so before you get offended, disgruntled or decide to close the door on a potential blessing, seek what the Lord, is doing in this season or concerning this matter. Reasons Seasons and Lifetimes rings true, people come into our lives for a purpose and some things happen for a reason.

Precious Cargo on Board

In my 24 years of experience of walking with the Lord, I've come to humbly realize that when one respects you or more so the God in you, there are certain things one just wont say or do. All because one recognizes that they are in the presence of a Holy God, and precious cargo is being transported from place to place within us. We are many members but one body. The Jesus in me loves the Jesus in you, its so easy... really means, we are one, we are on the same team, so to come against you would be self defeating.

No Excuses

 
There will come a time when Truth will reveal that there are no more excuses. When we don’t know how precious we are to God, we struggle through life, holding on to rumors, facts and evidences of our existence being unloved, unwanted, our being products of rape and incest, or our being victims of physical, verbal or emotional abuse,brought up on the other side of the tracks, coming from a broken home, raised in one parent households, being raised in the ghetto, exposed to tragedy, we grew up poor and or had poor role models, etc.

Time to Let Go

I've come to learn that life is truly too short. We all are just mist and vapor. Here today and gone today. Don't waste time carrying crosses or assignments that aren't yours. You attempt to help someone because you think with your emotional self and consider, What would Jesus Do? However, without consulting the God of your spiritual self, you jump into a situation based on this non scriptural premise. (WWJD- It sounds good, but its not entirely scriptural)
