Those in power are no match for God’s power.

Congress, you were elected by the people to work for the people. You took an oath that you would uphold our Constitution and protect the citizens of this mighty nation.

We counted on you to keep your promises to us. We placed you in a place of power to work for us. We didn’t put you into that office to rewrite our Constitution or reimage what the Constitution means to you, give away our jobs, and eliminate the middle class.

We placed you there to create jobs, create opportunities for all American citizens, create fair laws, and do what you said you were going to do.

You made us promises while you asked us for our votes. Then, we elected you. We trusted you. Then we went about our own business of raising our families, making our livings, and running our businesses.
Year after year, this went on. We kept trusting you. We kept believing in you.

Most of us wanted to pay attention to what was going on. We wanted to go to the rallies, attend the fundraisers, and go to the town meetings, but we were too tired. We were too busy working longer and harder hours for less money.

We noticed something wasn’t right, but we were just too busy with providing and taking care of our families. We saw the prices of education, health care, medicines, and food rise and rise. What did we do? What could we do? We had to keep working to provide.

Then we noticed something very odd. We hear our children speaking differently as they talk about how much they hate America. We saw them turn from happy individuals to unhappy individuals filled with hate for others.

Again, we wanted to do something, but we were busy working three jobs to keep paying for the insanely high college tuition and board for all our children.

Now, with our children off on their own, things have started to slow down for us. We see that our savings aren’t going to be enough to provide for us through our retirement.

We face the hardship of knowing we have to go out and look for a part-time job to keep us afloat. We see medicine and healthcare skyrocket in costs. We don’t even have the money to travel as we had planned. All our dreams, we had seemed impossible to grasp.

We look around and see our neighborhoods have changed. We barely recognize them anymore. Many local small businesses have gone under, and so many houses are now abandoned and boarded up. All there is are the big chain stores. There are no more mom and pop shops left.

We get a call from the police to tell us our oldest child was arrested for looting in Portland. Wow! We are taken aback. We never saw that coming. We didn’t raise our children that way, but the college she attended seemed to have changed her from a well-adjusted young child to an angry, hateful adult.

We stand back and look. We wonder where we went wrong. We did everything expected of us. We took care of our family, worked hard, and raised our children to be respectful of others. We taught them to love and not hate. We taught them to help others and to volunteer. Most of all, we taught them to love America as She is the greatest nation on earth.

Where did we go wrong? Please wait a minute. Was it because we trusted those politicians with our jobs and our future. We gave them all power. Now there is some horrible virus going around, and we cannot go outside, we cannot work, we cannot go on vacation, and most of all, we can’t go to church and sing to worship our God.

We have to stay inside and wear masks at all times when we do get to go outside. How did all this happen? How did we get here? We look and see those same politicians are still in office. They are still making the same promises today as they did 30 years ago.

But we do see there is something different for them. Each of them is incredibly wealthy. These politicians get to take vacations and fly on private jets. They live in sprawling estates with tall fences and armed guards. They have fancy refrigerators and can go on T.V. and brag about the expensive desserts they love to enjoy.

We barely have enough money left to buy food. We cannot even afford some of our medications. We don’t have money for vacations, and we will never know how it feels to fly in a private jet. We don’t even have any police officers in our neighborhood anymore because those same politicians defunded our police.

Why did we trust them, and why did they let America turn into such ruins? Why didn’t they fight for America, for us and our jobs? Why did they get so powerful and seem to want more of it? What do we do next? How do we get out of this horrible situation?

America, many families are going through this very scenario. Many individuals have turned to drugs, alcohol, gambling to ease their pains. Suicide and depression are on the rise. Our children cannot go to school and have become stagnant in their growth and knowledge.

Covid-19 has decimated the economies of countries around the world. Many people are starving. There are food shortages, riots, death, and destruction all around us.

Anger, hate, division, and riots are ongoing. What are we to do? There is one thing we cannot give up on. That is prayer. I know I have said this repeatedly, but I don’t think many people understand how powerful our prayer is.

Yes, we made mistakes giving our power and trust to the wrong people, but God is a forgiving God. He is a vindicating and trustworthy God. And He is a God of the turnaround!

Our prayer invites a miracle-working God into our situations. I am not sure about you, but I want the God of miracles working for me. I want to send out that invitation for the divine turnaround. I want and need God to step in cause I have made a mess of things.

Prayer moves our mountains, and our faith pleases God. So, pray, pray, pray, and pray. Also, fast and plant a seed for God’s turnaround in the situations we are facing.

Don’t let the worries and fears of what is being said on T.V. stop your worship. Worship like never before and pray without ceasing. Pray until something happens – PUSH. Pray until God moves. I know you may not understand why it takes God so long to move, but we have to remember that God does not move on our time, and His ways are not our ways.

He is God who holds all power, knowledge, wealth, and wisdom!

SamsonFrontCoverForAdvertisingKA1.3.20_Cropped

Yes, it is true. My little Samson is officially an award-winning book placing 3rd in the children’s category. I give all the glory to God!!!!
God sure is good all the time! His promises are yes and amen! I thank Him for keeping His promises.
No matter how long it has been, don’t let go of that promise that God gave you. Today is the day to pick it back up, grab it with both hands, and move out in faith.
God’s promises NEVER expire. It is just as good today, and it was the day it was spoken over to or to you.
There is not a better time than now to revisit that dream you have. The vision God placed deep into your heart before the foundations of time. Before you were a thought, an idea, or a plan for your mom and dad, God had already made plans for you.
He had already set special abilities and talents aside for you. Most of all, He loved you and continues to love you.
We have just begun a new year with new beginnings and unlimited possibilities. Today, take ahold of God’s hand and step boldly into those promises. Today, step boldly into your God-given destiny!

 

Recently, he proclaimed, I have decided to follow Jesus!

find-your-purpose3.30.19WP

When someone makes a drastic change and decides to follow God, some of us will question their decision, their honesty, their integrity, and dedication, and their sanity.
Who are we to judge this person’s decision making? How can we say they have gone crazy or that their commitment is sketchy?
When someone decides to walk in God’s ways, you have to applaud them. They have chosen a path least traveled. They have chosen to live in a way that is unpopular with our modern culture.
Today, the world tells us that our lives are all about me, me, and me. What is better for me, what is best for me, and what can I gain even if I step on top of others to get there?
The world lives in a “what’s best for me” culture. Living for God places Him about everything and everyone else.
They know and have decided they can live with the ridicule, laughter, mocking, and cruel comments because they see the bigger picture. They know what the end game holds.
This world tells us that to be of importance in this world that we must have riches, fame, and all kinds of stuff like boats, cars, houses, money, etc.
Placing God above all else in one’s life, says that He is more important than the desires for their lives.
They have decided to put God above money, fame, notoriety, and all the stuff that this modern world tells us we need to feel and be relevant.
They have chosen God even when they know they will be talked about, mocked, make fun of, laughed at, and have cruel comments made about them.
See, one thing we have to understand is that we have no right to judge others. There is only one judge who will stand judgment on every one of us. That judge is God!
He alone is the final judge of every word we have spoken, our character, actions, morality, and decisions. There should be no doubts about this. God will judge us all.
Instead of mocking this person, be happy for them, pray for them, and, most of all, support their decision to turn their life to the path that leads to God.

Let your faith arise!

faith-sign-made-of-wood3.24.18WP

God’s promises do come to pass. We have to hold onto them until they do. How long would you wait for God’s promise to come to pass?
So often we receive a promise from God then expect it to appear the next day, the next month, the next few months.
When we are forced to wait any longer, we get so discouraged and often give up. What happens when we have to wait years and years for this promise to show up? We let go! We give up. Then, we second guess what God promised us? We think we are unworthy, or we believe that God changed His mind.
Sometimes, we get angry. We tell ourselves that we wasted so much time and effort on a promise that never showed up.
First and foremost, you have to understand that God does not measure time as we do. In our calendar year, perhaps in the same time frame, only a minute has passed for God.
We also have to understand that God works on His timing, not ours.
We also have to understand that God works on His timing, not ours.
We also have to know that before our promise is delivered, we have to be prepared. We have to be tested by God. We have to prove we are ready to receive such an enormous promise.
God must prepare us. Can you imagine what would happen if we received a promise from God without being prepared? It would end disastrously.
Would you ever give a teenager the keys to a new car without first testing them to make sure they are prepared to drive?
Would you ever let your child drive without a license? They must take some form of class. They must have some training to learn how to drive with either formal or informal courses.
It is the same for us and our promises. We have to be prepared and tested. We have to be ready. We have to have our foundation in place.
Our faith has to be tested! God works through our faith and is moved by faith. Without faith, it is impossible to please God(Heb11:6).
His word tells us that we must believe in Him and earnestly seek Him. He rewards our diligence. He honors our persistence!
Do you have the boldness, the persistence, the diligence, and the relentlessness to seek Him for all His promises? If you don’t, do you want to have these things to step boldly out into the faith you need?
Then, pray and ask. Pursue God for these things. We have not because we ask not(Matt7:7).
A lot of us will never step into the fruition of His promises because we will give up and quit! We will let go.
Then some of us will become angry, bitter, and frustrated with God. We will blame Him for wasting our time, but in all truth, it was us that spent our own time, efforts, those promises.
We are shown a significant promise but not the road we will have to travel to get there. We are not shown the amount of time that will pass before we are standing in the fruition of that promise.
It may be a long, tedious, treacherous road that must be traveled. God does not show us this part because this is the part where our faith must arise, abide, and carry us through.
No matter how long it takes, don’t let go! Hold on, no matter how much time passes. Don’t give up on God. He knows what He is doing. Trust in Him, in His timing, and His love for you.

Who are you, and who’s, are you?

word-have-powerWP3.23.19

Who are you, and who’s, are you?
Sometimes we are our hardest critic. Your voice tells you things that aren’t true about yourself.
Your voice tells you that nobody loves you. God’s voice says that you are loved beyond your human comprehension.
Your voice tells you that you will never escape poverty. God’s voice says that He comes to give you an abundant life.
Your voice tells you that you are not brave and outspoken. Gods’ voice says that you are bold as a lion.
Your voice says you will always fail. God’s voice says that you are already victorious.
Stop listening to your voice. Verbally utter God’s spoken about who you are, what you are, and who’s you are.
His word has final authority! So speak His final authoritative words over yourself.
Our lives HAVE to line up with God’s words. So speak His words. Never stop uttering His words over yourself and your loved ones.
His words say you are His child. As His child, He only wants the very best for you.
Know who you are! You are the apple of His eye, His favorite, and His greatest creation. You are loved with an unconditional love that you will not fully understand until you are standing in His holy presence.

God, use me!

faith-sign-made-of-wood3.24.18WP

Have bold confidence to face any fear, giant, naysayer, friend, or family member that is telling you that God won’t gigantically use you.
If you have a confirmed promise from God, do let anyone or anything steal it from you.
Don’t make excuses why God can’t use you. Stand boldly in who you are and in whose you are.
God used Moses who had a speech impediment. Moses argued with God about His plans to use Moses to accomplish this goal.
Moses had very little faith in God at the very beginning of their relationship. BUT God transformed Moses into a BOLD warrior that freed God’s people from the bondage of slavery.
David had an illicit affair with Bathsheba, BUT GOD used him to become a King. David became a man after God’s own heart with his worship and praise of God. I long to be a worshipper the likes of King David!
See God uses imperfect people to accomplish His goals on the earth.
We only have to say “Yes, Lord. Use me!” God will do the rest!

Pursue your destiny in 2019!

new-year2019WP12.22.18

 

Be the happiest NOW!

photo-destiny-WP11.24.18

 

We all seek a happier life now. We all look for things/people that can bring us the most happiness.
We search for gurus, for self-help books, for life coaches, for advice, for new significant others, for new tech toys, for money, for success, for college degrees, and notoriety thinking these things will bring us MORE happiness.
No man is promised a tomorrow. So seek your happiest life now.
How can you gain the happiest life now? With God of course.
Life goes by so fast. Don’t waste another moment not pursuing your Godly divine destiny.
Seek to fulfill God’s divine destiny for your life. God only wants the very best for you. After all, you are his child.
Before the beginning of time, God prepared for you. He planned and set aside everything you would need to fulfill your destiny.
Seek Him to live your best life now! The life He created for you from the beginning of time.

You were born with a divine purpose!

Name-jesus10.13.18WP

Who are you called to be? Who did God create you to become? Each one of us has a divine destiny to fulfill for our Father in heaven.
If you are alive and breathing, you have a purpose to fulfill.
We all seek to live a life that is filled with the most happiness, excitement, and fulfillment we can have.
We are all called to live our best life now.
Each one of us only has one life to live. No man knows when his life will end. With that in mind, we need to live our best life now.
That is what God promises us. He promises to bless us beyond anything we can contain. His word says that He blesses us to be a blessing to others.
If we are blessed to be a blessing to others, then we have to be blessed to overflowing proportions.
Seek God today to find out what your purpose is. Do not think for one moment that you do not have a purpose to fulfill.
A lot of times we do not seek our destiny due to the fear of the unknown.
Fear can hold us captive like a prison. A captive in the same place afraid to move forward and step into God’s divine purpose.
Do not fear. God will provide every appointment and every provision that is needed for you to fulfill His purpose.
Believe who God says you are and step boldly into your divine destiny.
Believe who God created you to be and step boldly into your divine purpose.
