Add Jesus

Sitting at my kitchen table strolling on Facebook and seeing people that I was once close with, hanging out. All of a sudden a sense of loneliness comes over me. I shouldn’t feel this way God did bless me with a beautiful family why complain and then my loneliness speaks up and says “family yes, but friends no.” I can count on one hand how many friends I have and three of them are associates so you do the math. Immediately I consult the Lord on this and he immediately gives me an answer. “I am your friend when you are friendless, add me.”

Such a generic answer Lord I know this, but that’s not what I want to hear right now and then he leads me to this bible passage.

1 Peter 2:9 King James Version (KJV)

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.

I then realize that the friendship he has offered me is far more than the superficial ones that I have on this earth. I let Facebook distract me today, I got so caught up in worldly happiness that I forgot about eternal happiness. I must not be distracted by the things of this world because one day it will all pass away. As a Christian I must continue to live holy for the Lord even if it means standing alone. I chose to serve the Lord along time ago and there is no turning back. My job now is to pray for those that are lost that one day they will come over on the Lords side because one cannot serve two masters.

Joshua 24:15 King James Version (KJV)

15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

The Lord has embedded these two scriptures into my heart today and I am reminded that even though I am in the flesh when that lonely spirit arises I need to meditate on his word. I will continuously pray for those that Satan has blinded and binded that one day they will seek the Lord and answer his call upon their lives.

Big Bang Theory

I am still trying to fathom how so many believe that the world we live in was created by “The Big Bang Theory.” I ponder this question every morning when I walk outside my door and see the clouds hung in the sky and the sun shining bright, I ponder this question every night as the stars and moon give us light in the darkness. There are no strings visible to hold up the sun or moon but it’s stays put never falling from the sky. Man says it’s the “Big Bang Theory ” surprisingly they seem to have an explanation for everything even when their wrong.

Genesis 1 King James Version (KJV)

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

I know there are some that don’t believe in God so they are totally against his power to create the heavens and earth… boggles my mind but when in need for a healing that’s the first name they call upon . ( food for thought)

I know there are some that may have never heard of this theory in a short explanation, the Big Bang is a scientific theory about how the universe started, and then made the stars and galaxies we see today. They say it was an explosion and as it cooled overtime became the world we live in today.

I laugh at this theory but let’s give credit to someone with a vivid imagination. I brought up this topic today for Christians to be mindful of worldly thoughts. We live in a word where everything is being shoved in our face to steer us in the wrong direction from the word of God, but don’t let anyone persuade you to have doubt in God or his creations.

My God Shall Supply

Why do we worry about the future? 

Habakkuk 2:3  “For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.”

Why do we worry about provisions?   

Matthew 6:26 it says, “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?”

Why do we worry about workplace issues?

Isiah 41:10 “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”

Take all your worries to the Lord in PRAYER.

Philippians 4:19 “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

Valley of Dry Bones

Ezekiel is such an amazing prophet and I am intrigued by the anointing he had over his life. In the book of Ezekiel he is exemplified; to think a man who was in bondage could prophesy to those that were free. He could have refused the Lord’s calling over his life, but he was obedient knowing one day he would receive his crown by being a faithful servant of Jesus Christ.

I love the entire book of this prophetic word but the most incredible passage to me can be found in the Thirty-Seventh Chapter when the Lord instructs Ezekiel to prophesy over the Dry Bones.

Chapter 37:3

And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest.

In a valley of dry bones God ask Ezekiel can these bones live. God was using the illustration of the dry bones to compare it to the people of Israel who were no longer living for him, as punishment he let them fall into the hands of the enemy. Because of their disobedience they were carried into exile to live under paganism. Some would have said let them die in bondage they don’t deserve to live but, because of God’s grace and mercy he decided to restore them.

I began to ponder on this bible passage that was written many centuries ago and realized we are a generation of Israelites. We have fallen so deep in sin and have been scattered all abroad doing things that are unpleasing in God’s sight. We are a nation that displays “In God We Trust” adopted as this country’s motto in 1956 but has refused to put prayer back in schools. The United States is a valley of dry bones. We need the Lord to send down his Holy Spirit and restore us, we have become torn down like the walls of Jerusalem. Only God can make the crooked roads straight.

Isaiah 45:2

I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron.

Spiritual Cleasing

Every spring break we go to South Carolina, it’s a classic road trip with my family. This year we weren’t able to go and I was so disappointed. My mind was made up, this would be a boring spring break; what would I do for a week?

The second day of my break I woke up and went into my prayer room and began to pray. While praying I felt a presence upon me that I had never felt before, the feeling that came upon me was a longing (closeness) for the Lord and at that moment I knew that I needed to spend this time off with him. I went on a Facebook/Instagram hiatus I just wanted to read my bible, study his holy word, and share my writings with the world.

What I thought would be a boring break for me was the best time I have ever had. God opened up his word to me and refreshed my spirit. Sometimes we make plans and leave God out, the Lord reminded me of the blessings upon my life. I had to fast and not by sustaining from food but social media which meant no Facebook or Instagram.

This was a hard challenge for me because I had become accustomed to reaching for my phone first thing in the morning to check those sites before falling on my knees.

Thankful that the Lord let me know that I was headed in the opposite direction and to never get so busy that I don’t make time for him, because without him I am nothing.

2 Timothy 3:16

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.

Living Testimony 

This morning as I got dressed for church I began to reflect on my 44 years of life on this earth. Nothing that I have done or did allowed me to wake up this morning but God’s grace and mercy. Out of all the mornings, why did I reflect today? I could recall being shot at, being raped, colliding with a semi-truck but with each recollection I saw God holding my hand. You may think why would God be there during the hard times and not help you, he did help me he gave me strength to endure. 

God has a purpose and plan for my life, I am a living testimony; by me telling the goodness of Jesus someone who may feel like they  don’t have a reason to exist my testimony may give them hope. Before throwing in the towel of failure, guilt, and shame just know we are all living testimonies and regardless of what we go through in life there is someone out there just like us who went through but came out alright. Our ability to live is within, deep down inside we have an inner strength that we didn’t think we had; we are conquerors, we are victorious, we are LIVING TESTIMONIES.

God is so Good

God is good and he is definitely worthy of the praise! I can’t fathom my life without him, how does one even function without him. I know there are some that don’t believe, maybe their prayer is taking a little longer to get answered or something happened to make them a nonbeliever but I trust God no matter what. I have been in situations that the only person that could deliver me from the enemies hands was God! 

There is a song that my grandfather use to sing in church on Sundays the song was   “somebody prayed for me, had me on their mind, took the time and prayed for me, I’m so glad they prayed, I’m so glad they prayed, I’m so glad they prayed for me.”  I don’t think I would have made it this far without someone praying for me.  I have faced a lot of oppositions and the most bearing ones have been lately, sometimes wanting to throw in the towel but I kept the faith that things would work out. 

I don’t usually write blogs about my faith in God but someone needs to know that God will make a way just trust him and never doubt because he will definitely work things out. When you truly put your faith in God he can and will deliver you out of any situation.
