    WHAT DO YOU REALLY REALLY WANT?

    “What leads to [the unending] quarrels and conflicts among you? Do they not come from your [hedonistic] desires that wage war in your [bodily] members [fighting for control over you]? You are jealous and covet [what others have] and your lust goes unfulfilled; so you murder. You are envious and cannot obtain [the object of your envy]; so you fight and battle. You do not have because you do not ask [it of God]. You ask [God for something] and do not receive it, because you ask with wrong motives [out of selfishness or with an unrighteous agenda], so that [when you get what you want] you may spend it…

    TURNING PRESSURE INTO PRAISE.

    “The crowd also joined in the attack against them, and the chief magistrates tore their robes off them and ordered that Paul and Silas be beaten with rods. After striking them many times [with the rods], they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to guard them securely. He, having received such a [strict] command, threw them into the inner prison (dungeon) and fastened their feet in the stocks [in an agonizing position]. But about midnight when Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them; suddenly there was a great earthquake, so [powerful] that the very foundations of the…

    WHEN DREAMS DON’T MATCH UP…..Part Three conclusion

    Joseph was at the place of having done all to stand. He had done nothing wrong. But his whole world had fallen apart, or so it seemed. It was now 14 years later and God was about to bring the manifestation to light. Joseph was fully matured and life had trained and prepared him for his promotion. The coronation was more than Joseph would ever be able to process. Talk about “from rags to riches” from the pit to the palace. When we wait on God’s timing He will blow our minds. His plans are always worth waiting for. When we allow Him to fulfill His Word, there will be…

    WHEN DREAMS DON’T MATCH UP….Part Two

    This is the story of when bad things happen to good people for sure. As far as we know, except for being a teenager with  a God sized dream, Joseph was a great kid, oh and he was a tattle tail. Sure the dreams were hard to swallow by his jealous brothers, but that wasn’t a good reason for wanting to get rid of him. They compounded their behavior by lying to their father about what they had done. They let Jacob go years believing that the son of his love was murdered. Little did they know that they had been played. They were a part as was Joseph, of…

    WHEN DREAMS DON’T MATCH UP…Part one

    Have you received a dream or promise from the Lord? How long have you been waiting on the manifestation? Or have you forgotten? The Bible says that God is not forgetful and though the vision tarries to wait for it. 2 Peter 3:9 & Habakkuk 2:3. God is never in a hurry, but He’s never late. The waiting period between the dream and the manifestation is maturing us to handle a God sized dream. Most of us believe we’re ready but we are not. I know I wasn’t, and the longer I had to wait the more I realized the wisdom and sovereignty of my loving Father, and I thank…

    I HAVE and I WILL!

    “Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me. “Now my soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? No, it was…

    JUST LET ME DIE!😪

    “When Elijah saw how things were, he ran for dear life to Beersheba, far in the south of Judah. He left his young servant there and then went on into the desert another day’s journey. He came to a lone broom bush and collapsed in its shade, wanting in the worst way to be done with it all—to just die: “Enough of this, GOD! Take my life—I’m ready to join my ancestors in the grave!” Exhausted, he fell asleep under the lone broom bush. Suddenly an angel shook him awake and said, “Get up and eat!” 1 Kings 19:3-5 MSG  ‭‭ “Jonah was furious. He lost his temper. He yelled…

    LIVING LIFE from THE INSIDE OUT

    My pastor said something very interesting the other day. He said “what if when you came to church you were given a name tag, but instead of a name tag saying ‘hello my name is…’the tags were written this way instead: “Hello I’m here for____’ or ‘I’m here because I need___.’  The way we introduce ourselves to folks, whether overtly or covertly says a lot about our character or who we really are. Most of us are very good at hiding the real us until someone or something hits the right button. I know personally that I’m constantly having to guard against walking in the old man. The flesh knows…

    WHAT ARE YOU HIDING?

    “When I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted away Through my groaning all the day long. For day and night Your hand [of displeasure] was heavy upon me; My energy (vitality, strength) was drained away as with the burning heat of summer. Selah.” Psalms 32:3-4 The Psalmist David penned these words when he tried to hide his sin with Bathsheba. At the time when he should’ve been out fighting alongside his men, he decided to stay home. What he did was uncommon for kings, they were the commanders, their men drew courage and strength from them. By staying home, he allowed himself to be set up. You do…

    VESSELS

    “In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets—some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage. Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to His guests for their blessing.” 2 Timothy‬ ‭2:20-21‬ ‭MSG‬‬ We were all created on purpose for a purpose. Unfortunately most of us will go through life never discovering what that purpose is. We were not designed to figure life out, our Creator already determined each of our destinies. Observant parents will recognize what I like to refer to as “godly bents” earlier…
