Loneliness – are you feeling it as you shelter in place?

god-bless-americaWP9.28.19

Today, we celebrate our Armed Forces. We say, “thank you” to each of them for their bravery, service, and dedication.
Right now, as I am typing these very words, our rights are being threatened. We have been told to stay at home, not go to work, not go outside, to only see our loved ones for medical emergencies, and not to go to our places of worship.
What?? How can this be? We are Americans. We love our freedoms! We are blessed with freedom of speech, worship, to protect ourselves, etc.
These rights are given to every citizen of America.
No law, no decree, no executive order can take these from us.
Yet, we have power-hungry government officials that seem to think they have the power to take our rights away.
We voted these officials into office, and we can vote them out of the office too. We can seek retribution in the courts. In some states, we can even recall officials.
We have to do something. We cannot lay down and let these officials strip away our rights.
If we allow our rights to be taken now, how long will it be until they do it again or find a way to take away our rights permanently.
We are being controlled and silenced. What is the tool they are using to silence us?  Fear of course.
We are silenced from speaking up about our rights and these atrocious attacks on them.
Our worship is being silenced.
That is one thing we cannot allow to happen because God desires and deserves our worship.
When we worship, mountains move, bodies are healed, minds are restored, marriages are made whole again, addictions are broken, and miracles happen.
When we worship, God moves!
Our worship makes all of heaven move on our behalf.
We cannot allow our worship to be silenced!
Our answer to this pandemic is in our worship. The answer to a vaccine is in our worship, and our economy’s recovery is in our worship. America’s breakthrough is in our worship.  America’s next level is in our worship.
Every answer is in our worship.
Whatever happens, do not allow your voice to be silenced! Do not let your worship to be taken away from you.
Now more than ever, it is crucial that you contact your senator, representative, governor, major, your city council, and even the President.
All of us have to take some action now. Call, write, email, sign a petition, start a petition, or peacefully protest.
Let them know that our voices will not be silenced and that we will not sit by as our rights are stripped away.
America, stand up now. If we don’t, God help us!
Don’t give up now. I see God in the midst of all of this. He is at work. He has not and will not ever forget us.
He sees our suffering, and He hears our prayers.
Keep praying, pushing forward, and keep worshiping Him.
Pray without ceasing because that is what His word tells us to do.
Pray fervently. God’s His word says that a fervent prayer availeth much.
As we pursue God fervently, I see a mighty move of God coming because we pushed through and didn’t give up.
God will avenge America. God will restore America and all Her citizens.
I know it easy to become hopeless with so much negativity surrounding us.
That negativity seeks to pull you into its grasps.
Now, let your faith arise. Your faith is what destroys the hopelessness. God will repay your faith because He always honors those with faith.

Our American rights are under attack

Hold on! Your destiny is closer than you think.

photo-destiny-WP11.24.18

No matter how long it takes for you to step into your destiny, do not give up.
God is not a man that can lie. He will never mislead or misdirect you. Do not let go of your blessings.
He has considerable & tremendous plans to bless you. You must trust that He knows what He is doing.
Do not think that delay means that it will never come to pass. God’s timing is always perfect.
Whether you decide to give up on your dreams or choose to pursue them, time will pass either way.
Use that time wisely to prepare, seek God, pray, and complete any directions from God that will place you at the right time and place when He decides to open the door for your destiny.
If you give up and do not work towards preparedness, you will not be ready when the time comes for God to open your door to the fulfillment of your destiny.
If you hold on and do not give up, fulfillment of God’s purpose for your life
will come to pass!

Always give Him thanks!

Hoax of hate.

blur-pray-word-power-of-prayer-529763590.jpg

Recently, we all had a hoax perpetrated on us. We were all made to believe that an act of ugliness and hate conducted on a well-known public figure.
With so much emphasis being placed on hate racism these days, why would someone want to bring attention so much attention to it in such a negative way?
We were made to believe that two men with so much anger and hate in their hearts beat, verbally abused, poured bleach onto, and placed a symbol of the worst despicable acts of terror and violence around this man’s neck.
Now, we have found out by so much evidence pointing to the actual truth that this whole ordeal was planned out to trick everyone.
Why would someone purposely create a story of such a viciously attack?
An act of this type of selfishness has hurt and angered so many people as it prevented those who genuinely need the help of the Chicago police dept. from attaining that much-needed help.
So many resources were soaked up for this fake crime.
Some in the media, some politicians, and some in Hollywood exacerbated this incident.
The flames of hate were fanned by their words that spat more hate, anger, and division before they even knew that whole truth.
So many have fought to eradicate hate, bigotry, and racism.
Some who fought paid the ultimate price to end racism. They gave their lives to ensure equality is accessible to each of us.
Now, here we are watching this alleged hoax play out. What a disgrace!
Maybe this act of selfishness can make us all realize that racism, bigotry, and hate need to come to an end. Perhaps now we can all see some truth to the agendas of the some in the media and some politicians.
Maybe now we can all see that grouping certain people together and calling them racist is a ridiculous thing.
No one but God knows the what is in the hearts of each of us.
To group people just because of the way they voted is nonsense.
To say every person in this group is hateful and racist is just plain silly and hurtful.
None of us know why people vote the way that they do. Again, to say you know a person’s heart without ever meeting that person is just plain silly.
Now, I hope we have all learned a valuable lesson.
We MUST wait until we have all the facts before we start speaking our opinion and we should never pass judgment on others.
We can’t heal our past if we keep dragging it behind us. We have to let it go if we are ever going to be repaired.
Drugging up the past and picking our wounds will never allow healing.
Even though we are hurt and frustrated, we will eventually have to forgive and move past this act of selfishness.
Let’s pray for God to heal the heart of this person that caused this whole alleged hoax. We pray that he will finally admit to the truth.
We need to continue to pray for America. She needs Gods forgiveness!
We need to pray that God will open the eyes of this young man and use this mess he purposely created and turn into a message of healing!

Make 2019 your stellar year.

worship-aged-woodwp1.5.19

If you are determined to make 2019 a stellar year for yourself, there is one change that you must implement.
So many people seek the advice of brilliant businessmen/women, life coaches, or gurus.
Some of this advice might come in a forum that will cost you a pretty penny.
Would you like to know some advice that will alter your life forever?
Getting closer to God is ALWAYS a life changer.
Determine that this will be the year you get to know God more intimately.
God longs to know each of us intimately. He wishes to reveal who He is to us in a way that will forever change our lives.
When I say knowing God more intimately, it does not reference the intimacy of humanity.
Intimacy with God is allowing Him to show us every level of who He is. I am not sure about you, but I want to know God and every level of His awesomeness!
See, I have such a burning desire to know Him more intimately every day.
King David, knew God in a very intimate manner. King David was a worshipper like no other.
Maybe the depths of his worship for God came from the intimate nature of his knowledge of God.
Worship is one other thing that God desires from us. Maybe, the intimacy and worship go hand in hand.
Now maybe you think that you know God because you are very knowable about the bible or perhaps somewhat comprehensible about the bible.
Knowing the Bible and knowing God are two completely different things.
Yes, we should know study and know His word but knowing God is a whole different manner.
Knowing God will bring you into a higher appreciation of Him.
When you know Him more intimately, He will show Himself to you in new profound ways.
Here is my daily prayer to God. I pray it becomes yours too.
My prayer every day is “God, let me know You like no other person has known You. God, reveal things to me that You never have and will never reveal to anyone else.”
Remember, God, says if you seek Him, you will find Him. Let Him know that you desire Him above anything else. Let Him know you want to be closer to Him. When you seek Him in this particular manner, He will not disappoint you.

Reflections on 2018.

 

stock-vector-faith-will-move-mountains-vector-illustration-with-hand-lettering-religious-quote-541812583.jpg

At this time of the year, we start to reflect on the year that has almost ended.
Some of us regret that another year has almost passed and we didn’t get that thing finished that we were so determined to get done at the begging of the year.
We promised ourselves that we would paint that picture, write that book, complete our book of photography, complete that sculpture, get or CD recorded, or get that presentation together for our latest invention.
Then life happens. Things sidetracked us, and we push that focus and determination to complete that one task way down on our “must do” list.
Here is some excellent news! It’s never too late if you have lost your way.
Don’t be so hard on yourself if you have gotten sidetracked, derailed, detoured, or delayed.
Make up your mind once again to get back on track. Pray to ask God to get you refocused, redetermined, reenergized.
Pray and ask the Holy Spirit for conviction when you start to get off track again in the new year.
Whatever that one thing is that brings happiness, excitement, invigoration, joy into your heart and life, pursue it.
Don’t let go of that. That kind of happiness, desire, and longing in your heart for this one thing is from God above. Make sure this coming year is the year that you boldly step into your divine destiny.
Don’t stop believing that you were created on purpose for a purpose. Every single one of us has a destiny to accomplish for God.
Once God reveals that destiny to you, grab hold of that promise and do not let it go until it is fully completed.

True love!

 

Last weekends royal wedding was solid proof that love DID conquer every obstacle that stood in its way.
God, knows our sincere desire to be truly loved. That is how He created us.
God created each one of us to be loved and to love one another.
In fact, there is NO GREATER love than the love God has for each one of us.
Even if we choose not to love Him, He WILL ALWAYS love us.
Even we can’t or don’t love ourselves, He WILL ALWAYS love us!
No matter if we choose not to include Him in our life, He WILL ALWAYS love us.
Even if we choose to hate Him, He WILL ALWAYS love us.
Even when we choose to think He does not exist, He WILL ALWAYS love us
No matter if we choose to think that He is a figment of the imagination, He WILL ALWAYS love us.
Know this, God’s love for each one of us is unconditional, unimaginable, overwhelming, unstoppable, incomprehensible, uncontainable, never-ending, never-failing, and ALWAYS there for us.

Tell this mountain to move!

Today is gift from God.
