Riot – violence is never the answer.

America, what happened this past Wednesday in Washington D.C., was utterly shameful.
I have thoughts about who was involved and the real reason all that rioting took place.
I will keep that opinion to myself. In this format, I am here to discuss God and what He is laying on my heart.
On Wednesday, what took place was confusing, awful, unbelievable, and destructive, but God is still in control in all that chaos.
Our nation is frayed and on the verge of breaking in two. Our country cannot stand when there is so much division. We are on the brink of self-destruction.
Many in Congress planned on objecting to the fraud in our last election, but these rioters’ actions changed the mind, mood, atmosphere, and opinions of many of them.
These few individuals’ cowardice actions managed to show the few senators’ grit and resolve who did end up objecting.
Do I think that our current President should quit? No, not at all. I think he should pursue all legal remedies until he has exhausted all of them. He is not a quitter, and that is why so many in America continue to give him their unwavering support.
Now before you jump to any conclusions, I want to make something very clear. I am not advocating for any one person over another. I am and will always advocate for God.
I seek God’s will to be fulfilled, not man’s.
Our current President had the destiny to be President at this very time. God chose him to be the leader of America. The President, the same as all of us, has a Godly destiny to fulfill.
Each of us has a purpose of fulfilling for God. To be President was and continues to be his if it is God’s will for him to continue to hold that office (Matt12:18). If this is God’s will, no person, no demon, no spell, and no devil can stop that from happening.
Why would God choose such a man that offends so many with his straight to the point words? God knew what would be needed at this point in our history.
Does our current President say brash things? Yes, he does. Are his words imperfect and harsh? Yes, at times they are. Sometimes, I am taken back by the way he expresses himself, but I trust God.

Please understand, this is not about the man Donald J. Trump. This is about God! God’s will is for America to remain free. This battle is for America’s continued democracy, and to delay the demonic plan of one world order.

At this very time in history, God knew that He needed a strong, independent thinker to be in that powerful office. God also knew He needed someone who isn’t ashamed to call on Him for help.
God knew of the President’s tenacity, strength, determination, and the fact that he didn’t care who he offended as long as he helped the American people.
Do I believe our President is a Christian? Yes, I do. I think he has sought God for direction.
I cannot judge our President’s relationship with God. No man has the right to judge any person’s relationship with God and question their Christianity.
If we believe that a person who says they are a Christian appears to do something ungodly, then we have the right to take it to God in prayer.
We should pray for that person to find God’s directions, His perspective, His answers if it seems they have lost their way. We shouldn’t judge and talk behind that person’s back.
Regardless of what you think about our last election, there was voter fraud. People who have passed away voted. That is unacceptable. People who had moved out of the states were still allowed to vote in that state. That is unlawful.
There were many other infractions in our last election, but I won’t go into them here.
American’s have the right to know their elections are fair. Many American’s believe that the last election was wrought with fraud.
We need to find out the truth. We owe it to the country. It is one thing that will help heal our land.
Please don’t give up on prayer. Don’t stop praying for God’s will to be fulfilled.
We have to remember that violence is never the answer. Violence never solves anything. It only opens the door for more as violence begets violence.
We have to get back to a place of civility, and only God can bring the healing we so desperately need.
America, keep pursuing God right now and remember when so many are praying and seeking God.
Our prayers call God to action. Our prayer causes battles between good and evil.
Where there is so much prayer, things will intensify, but make no mistake, God will show up, and we will all know His answer on His time.
Stay positive, and do not fall into anger and despair. Our worship will keep us in the right atmosphere. Your worship will keep negative thoughts, frustration, and bitterness to take root.

Merry Christmas. Our Savior is born!

Speak generational blessings over your children!

words-have-power_WP2.8.20

What words did you speak over your children today? Did you tell them that they are wonderful, create, blessed, cherished, loved, kind, peaceful, grateful, graceful, and loved by a God who adores them?
Or did you tell them they are spoiled, horrible, rotten, trouble makers, instigators, bullies, ungrateful, and that no one cares what happens to them?
See, your words will frame your children’s tomorrows too. They will see themselves through the very words you speak over/to them.
They will hear many words throughout their lifetime. Always speak the words of who they are, who you want them to be, who God says they are, and of what they will accomplish over them from a very early age.
They can hear your voice as they grow, develop, and are protected in their mother’s womb. Let them hear these affirmations now. When they hear these positive words over and over in their lifetime, it is these words they will hang onto.
Having heard these positive Godly words spoken over them constantly and consistently from before birth will cement who they know they are when they are grown up.
If these Godly words are heard daily for 18 years straight, your children are likely to continue speaking these same Godly words over themselves and eventually over their own children.
Talk about pulling generational blessings into your family!
There are enough fears and doubts brought into our lives by the world, we as parents need to make sure our children know who they are before they face this world alone.

 

In the name of Jesus, fear, you will no longer control my life!

 

Fear

Where is your joy, peace, and happiness? Have they been stolen? Have they been taken away by the fears of what tomorrow holds?
Do not let your fears consume you. Right now, there is fear trying to overtake you.
It is on the news every second of the day. It is all your family and coworkers are talking about.
Now, there are a lot of people filled with fear. So much fear that they are afraid to leave their houses.
They refuse to go to buy groceries, go to the gas station, go to a restaurant, go on vacation, and go to work.
They might even refuse even to go outside.
We must not allow fear to consume us.
When we live in fear, we are easier to control. When we live in fear, we do irrational things, make irrational decisions, and let our rights get taken away.
I am not sure when exactly fear overtook your mind and spirit, but it did.
You have to resist that fear. You have to make fear flee. If you don’t, you won’t be fully living. Any person who lives in fear is not living their full potential in life.
Please remember that we take risks all day long. We take risks when we operate a vehicle. We take risks when we are at work. We take risks when we attend a movie, go to our child’s sporting event, when we go out for a meal, even when we sleep.
No person is promised that they will wake up for their nighttime sleep.
We are at risk of catching a life-threatening illness. We are at risk when we eat food. Every aspect of our daily lives encompasses risks.
Yet, we don’t’ think about them as we drive, sleep, etc. and don’t let these fears overtake our lives.
Somehow we have come to a rational decision in our minds that those risks are minuscule or that these risks don’t muster up fear in our lives or consume our thoughts anymore.
Somehow, we have put those risks aside and continue to drive, eat, sleep, and enjoy our lives.
What is so different about this virus? Why has it consumed your mind to the point where you won’t leave the house anymore?
Yes, this is a dangerous virus. Yes, this is a highly contagious virus. Yes, this virus can be deadly if we don’t take the right precautions.
Yes, it very accurate that some individuals indeed get very sick once they catch this virus, but I believe it only a small percentage of people who catch this virus that ends up in the hospital.
Our fears must be driven away. Fears won’t leave on their own. Once fear takes you over, it won’t let up and will not just disappear on its’s own.
We have to command fear to leave us, and we have drive it out with God’s words.
One thing that makes fears leave immediately is worship. When you worship God, you pull the presence of God into your life. When God’s presence is there, fear, worry, anxieties must flee.
Fear, worries, anxieties are not of God. So, when God is present, those spirits cannot stay there in the presence of God.
And make no mistake, fear, anxiety, and worry are not just emotions. Yes, when they show up quickly in response to a situation that comes up unexpectedly, yes, those are emotions that show up in response to that situation you are in, but then those emotions dissipate right away.
When you live in constant fear, worry, or constant anxiety, there is a spirit of fear, anxiety, or worry involved.
Such much in fear that you won’t leave the house or go to work or do the things we all enjoy doing.
If you are bombarded by fear at all times, it is time to seek help from your Pastor, Bishop, Preacher, Priest, etc. Ask for prayer. Do not suffer in silence. Do not be ashamed to admit that you are being held captive by fear.
Seek God’s word too. It is filled with promises, provisions, protection, etc. of God.
God’s word will never fail! Did you hear that? God’s word is pure power! It cannot return to Him unfulfilled, and it can never fail. It will never change.
Here is an example. God’s word tells us to fear no evil (Psa23:1-6).
Here is another one. Isaiah 41:10 tells us not to fear for God is with us.
You must make fear flee!
Take God’s word and use it.
It is your weapon against the evil of this world. It is your sword (weapon), which is mentioned in the prayer for the Armor of God (Eph6:10-18).
All day drive out fear with God’s word. Pray prayers of protection over your family members and yourself.
Do not think God’s word and prayer do not work. Do not let anyone talk you out of using His word and stop your prayer.
We are not just pawns to the evil of this world. We have the right to live in happiness and peace, but we have to remember that these rights have to be fought for.
I am not talking about fighting as in violence. I am talking about fighting with prayer, God’s word, our worship, and our spoken words of blessings and life.
Today, make the decision that you will live in peace and happiness.
We all have one life. Chose to live in joy, peace, happiness, and not in fear.

In the swirling fear of coronavirus, let’s go back to the basics – worship!

coronavirus_2.29.20WP

Its been a while since we just worshipped God. I think with all everything going on in our world right now, this is a good day to go back to that place of worship.
We need to use our worship to find His peace and serenity. In our worship, we find His love, and most of all, His presence!
God, we thank You for who You are. You are holy, magnificent, glorious, and beautiful.
Thank You for waking us up today. Thank You for keeping us safe last night as we slept.
God, we love You will all our hearts. We worship You for everything You have blessed us with.
We thank You for the food we have to eat, the bed we have to sleep in, the job to support our families, we thank You for our health, thank You for this day. For this is the day You created, and we shall be glad and rejoice in it (Psl118:24)
God, we thank You for our Savior, Jesus. Thank You that He took our place on the cross. Thank You, Father, for giving Your only Son, Jesus, to die in our place on the cross.
Because of Him, we are restored back to You. We say thank You, Father. Thank You for the comforter, the Holy Spirit.
Father, we thank You that You are our strong tower, our defender, our protector, and our warrior.
Father, thank You for Your peace, joy, and abundant happiness.
Thank You, Father, for the way You love us! You love us without expectation, and You love us just how we are. You love us, relentlessly!
Your love is unconditional, never-ending, never ceasing, and unfathomable
Thank You, Father, for Your mercy and grace that renews every morning.
Thank you, Father, for the pursuit of us. Thank You, God, that before the foundations of this world, You loved us.
Before this world was formed, You were thinking, planning, and in anticipation of us.
God, thank You for Your never-ending forgiveness.

Thank You for Your divine plans for our lives. Thank You that You have a purpose set out for each one of us.
Thank You that as we worship You, all fear, all doubts, all depression, all worries, and all anxieties must flee.
Thank You that our worship brings our focus back to You. It places You front and center, and everything else falls to the background.
Thank You that our worship moves mountains. It makes a way when there seems to be no way.
God, protect us. God, there is so much fear about coronavirus and the death that comes with it.
Father, right now, in the name above all names, we bind all viruses, including coronavirus. We loose perfect health and safety in its’s place.

God, Your word says that whatever we bind on earth is bound in heaven. Whatever we loose on earth is loosed in heaven(Matt18:18).
God, we thank You for Your divine protection for our families against all forms of viruses, disease, sickness, and coronavirus.
God, we command that we shall live and NOT DIE (Psl118:17) in the name of Jesus.
God, we place a hedge of protection around each one of our family members.
God, we place the whole armor of God on each of our family members(Eph6:10-18).
God, we thank You for everlasting life thought our Savior. Thank You that no weapon formed against us shall prosper.
Father, we cast every form of this virus to the pits of hell where it belongs.
Father, we ask Godly wisdom upon man to come up with a vaccine quickly.
Father, we ask for forgiveness for our disobedience of You. God, heal our lands.
Father, as fast as this virus appeared, we ask that it dissipate and disappear that quickly too.
God, we ask for protection over our President and his administration from all forms of sickness, disease. and all viruses. Angels, in the name of Jesus, surround the President, his family, and his whole administration and divinely protect them. Your word instructs us to pray for leaders (1Tim2:1-3).
God, we ask for divine protection around our troops and their families.
God, we ask protection around our children and their schools.
God, send angels to protect each one of us.
God, we seek Your face. God, restore our economy and our nations.
God, we ask that the truth be revealed exactly how this virus started. Let the truth be known. What man does is secret shall be made known to all man.
Father, we know that we are inching closer and closer to the second coming of our Savior. God, let every heart be restored to you.
God, we ask for a resurgence of You. We ask that this world be will turn back to You. God, let there be a revival of You.
God, let there be a new hunger and thirst for You. God reignite fires and passions for You and everything about You.
God, let us see a mighty move of God.
God, we ask all these things in the name of Jesus. Amen.

I am introducing the first of many children’s books from Holy Ground Today.
This book will be available for sale in December. Please contact me at holygroundtoday@gmail.com for pre-orders.
Thank you.

God, hear our prayers for Midland and Odessa.

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

Father, there is another shooting in Texas. God, hear our pleas and cries for Your help and mercy.
God, we lift each family who is affected by this horrific tragedy. Holy Spirit comforts each of them. Do not their hearts fill with anger and hate to seek retaliation in any way.
God, give each of them Your peace. A calming peace that only comes from You. Ease their pain. Disperse their confusion, anger, depression, and suffering! God, shower them with Your love. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
God, why does this keep happening? Show us how to stop this. God, reveal to us what is driving this violence that causes death and destruction in the lives of innocent people.
Father, show us the root cause of this.
Father, make our leaders work together to agree on sensible laws that will work, etc. Stop them from blaming each other.
Stop them from hating each other and pointing the fingers of blame on each other.
God, we know that our actions produce reactions.

Father, let us seek You for the forgiveness of our sins and the sins of this nation.
God, we as a people and a nation continue to sin, and we think that sin does not have consequences, but they do.
Our sins open doors to consequences that are too much for us to pay.
People mock and laugh at us as we continue to pray for answers. They tell us our prayers are useless. They say that if prayers worked that these tragedies would not happen in the first place.
The truth is that all of our sins have painful consequences that are too much for us to bear. God’s word tells us that the wages of sin is death (Rom6:23), BUT we are blessed with a gift of Jesus, our Savior! Amen, amen, amen!
Our unforgiven sins will continue to bring mass suffering, despair, and destruction, but most people don’t want to hear that.
They can’t handle the truth and do not wish to know the truth. The truth is all the sins of the world have attributed to the current state of our nation and our world. The price of all these sins is too much for us to payback! We can never repay what is owed for each one of these sins!
God, thank for our Savior! Because of Jesus, the precious blood He shed on the cross, we do not have to repay those sins! He did this for every one of us. He shed His blood for us and took the place for each one of us. But, we do have to repent and seek true forgiveness!

What is the cost to repay for every baby America kills via abortions? I am not referring to abortions for one year or the total abortions in your lifetime. I am talking about ALL the abortions combined since they started happening. I can’t even imagine what that cost is. What is the price to repay for their baby parts to be sold to companies to research so they can profit from future prescription sales and profits? These acts are ghoulish!
What is the cost to repay when our government looks the other way as children are sold into slavery via human trafficking?

And don’t mistake what I am saying about our government. I am not talking about one particular person in the government like blaming this all on our current President or his administration. I am referring to the years and decades of our government doing nothing while these atrocities take place. I am also referring to our role in these atrocities. I am not saying that we had a direct hand in all abortions or trafficking, but we have an indirect hand in it.

We sit back in our comfortable homes and look the other way as these things take place. We need to say something! Write a letter, an email, etc.. to your congressperson, the mayor, the governor, or your local representative. Let your voice be heard. Even if nothing changes, at least you know you tried and God will also know.

God help us never to stop praying. You tell us to pray without ceasing(1Thes5:17). We cannot give up on or abandon our prayers! Do not let anyone silence our prayers.

Father, forgive us! Father, forgive our sins that we have committed against You. Father, forgive our nations for the sins they have committed against You. God, heal our lands. God, bring peace and love back to all of our hearts. God, send wisdom and knowledge to us. God, help us stop these acts of violence, expose the plots and plans of evil people, stop our children from being killed in our schools, and stop these acts of murder in our malls, shopping centers, etc. God, help us voice our displeasure that You have been banned from our schools. God help us express our anger of all these things! God, make us bold with loud voices to tell those in charge that we do not like our money being used to murder innocent babies, that we do not like the fact that prayer and God have been removed from our schools. Father, let us seek You and Your word diligently!
Father, do not let our hearts and souls grow cold towards You and towards each other.
Holy Spirit, convict those who mock us as we seek God relentlessly.
Father, we ask all these things in the name above all names, Jesus.
Amen.

Our society is broken!

jesus-written-in-ash-sand-WP7.28.18

 

Our society has deteriorated over the last 60-70 years.
Mental instability is on the rise. The amount of people on prescription drugs for anxiety and similar disorders is on the rise.
Homelessness, poverty, violence, drug use, over prescribed medications, hate, and despair are all on the rise.
What has contributed to the rise in all these areas? It is easy to place your finger on the answer. The increase in all of these areas can be attributed to one factor!
It is the loss of God in our lives!
We have chosen to look the other way as the amount of children born out of wedlock has risen. The amount of children raised without a father in the home has skyrocketed. And the amount of people that believe in God and attend houses of worship has steadily decreased.
Statics have shown us that children raised without a father are more likely to turn to crime and drug use.
We have chosen to look the other way as gateway drugs like marijuana become legal. We look on without action as suicide rates have risen. We see people losing their lives to lethal illegal drugs, but we still chose to do nothing. We stand idly by as our jobs have been shipped overseas. We have watched American cities fall into pits of despair, poverty, and hopelessness.
We sit silently by as God is taken out of our schools, as He is removed out of many courthouses, city halls, etc.
Some of us sat, doing nothing as the greetings of Christmas were almost silenced by those who called it offensive.
We have told God to leave our schools. Now, our children are the victims of gun violence, suicide, perversion, and death.
We have told God to leave our city halls, our courthouses by taking His commandments down. Now, our courts are dens of lies, dishonesty, corruption, hate, discrimination, etc.
We have allowed the murder of innocent babies via abortion. We choose to sit by and say nothing as our taxpayer monies are used to fund these murders.
God does not mince words. Murder is murder. The abortion of a baby is murder.
What ungodly repercussions have we allowed to invade our lives, our towns, our cities, and our nation with the atrocities of the murder of innocent babies?
In some places of worship, there is no worship of God. There is only the talk and teachings of how terrible America is, how She is a nation of lies and murder.
Now, these places of “worship” produce mass murderers via suicide bombings.
There have been discussions of removing “In God, we trust” on our currency. If that ever happens, we will suffer profound consequences.
I am no way saying that people should love money! I am no way saying that God loves money because He does not.
I am saying that our money IS GOD’s money.
He requires us to tithe with our money. In turn, He takes that tithe and blesses us and others via our obedience.
We have to invite God back into our places of worship.
By reopening our hearts to God, we will allow Him back into the lives of our families, schools, towns, cities, and back into our nations.
We have to seek the face of God daily! We must seek His forgiveness for the acts of our families, our cities, our towns, and our beautiful nation!
He tells us to seek His face, pray, ask for His forgiveness so He can heal our nation(2Chron7:14).
I am not sure about you, but I am tired of the innocent being murdered. I want and choose God, above all else in my life! As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord (Joshua24:15)!
Will you choose God again? Will you decided to put Him first again? Will you turn back to Him again? Let us do it together.
You keep asking God “what can I do” as you watch these horrific incidents keep happening in our nation.
Here is a clear plan that WILL bring a turnaround for America. Seek God’s face, repent, repent for our nation, and pray. Pray relentlessly, diligently, and without ceasing!!!
The future of our families lives, our lives, the lives of our fellow citizens, our society, and the world depend on it!

God, help me enjoy life again.

happy-woman-WP12.15.18

 

Life passes too quickly. Make sure you enjoy, take in, appreciate, and savor every moment.
Don’t focus on bills, monies due, jobs, family issues, etc. Those items bring stress, fear, and steal your joy.
Of course, those things are essential in your life but do not place all your focus on them.
Instead, focus first and foremost on God. Focus upon God will bring a different viewpoint on all other things.
When we place our focus on God, all other issues become insignificant.
