Song of The Week: What Do I Know Of Holy by Addison Road

 

Hello family, Im sitting here listening to this song and it really made think. We sometimes get to a point where we feel we know God. Then he takes us through a storm or He blows our mind by drawing us deeper than we ever expected. Truth is, what we know about God, what we have experienced to this point in our life is only a fraction of who He is. play the song and fall deeper into God.

Much Love & God Bless

Love (Poem)

Love……

Love moves to shelter another even if it is the one out in the rain.

Love looks beyond just enough and goes the extra mile.

Love is quick to hold back wrath and even quicker to lend a merciful hand.

Love brings correction to guide us back to life.

Love still calls us, even when we have pushed away.

Love see’s every flaw in you but is willing to correct them.

Love asked for the cup to be passed from Him but still carried out His Fathers will.

Love was thinking of you and me as roman nails were pounded into His hands and feet.

Love bridged the gap between man and God.

Two thousand years ago Loves blood was poured out for You!

Much Love & God Bless

The Numbers (Poem)

Do I have to have a three thousand seat auditorium?

Do I need a grand stage with all the trappings?

Do I need a three piece suit and a degree to boot?

NO!

Do I need to shutdown twitter and Facebook to make an impact?

Do I need the most followers and likes?

Do I need the numbers?

NO!

What I need is to know that the pouring out of my God given gifts is not in vein!

I need to know that the words that God gives me will reach a soul and touch it!

I can have all the numbers but no fruit comes from the numbers then its all in vein!

If only one of you is touched by the words God gives me, the mission He gave me is a success!

I don’t need the numbers. I need “well done Good and faithful servant”

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 4/12/16 Total Surrender

the new mc banner

Read Luke 9:57-62

62 But Jesus told him, “Anyone who puts a hand to the plow and then looks back is not fit for the Kingdom of God.” – Luke 9:62 NLT

Hello family, Surrender… Abandon all that you fight to keep close and give it all to God, Then go and seek his kingdom. Surrender is definitely easier said than done. Because what He wants you to surrender, you hold close to you. We want to fix it our self and keep the things we value but God says put all that aside and pursue me!

How can I say “yes lord ill give IT to you” and then leave the altar clinging to the edge of IT. I can’t fix it or change the situations that come with life on my own. So what have i got to lose by letting it go and giving it to God and completely letting him take it? And then go flat out in my pursuit of Him and his kingdom? What have i got to Lose? Surrender…. easier said than done but it can be done

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 4/11/16 Be Real (with discernment)

the new mc banner

25 So stop telling lies. Let us tell our neighbors the truth, for we are all parts of the same body. – Ephesians 4:25 NLT

Hello family, When we made Christ Lord of our lives, all of our issues didn’t just poof away. If anything they showed up even more. Sometimes we put up a facade, we don’t want those around us to know that we are going through something, we don’t want them to know that we have struggles. We want them to see our mountain top moments and not the moments when we are bruised and battered clinging on by a thread.

God did not design us to be solitary beings, even the hermits that collect dust and only come out on triple coupon Tuesday have at least one or two other hermits that they relate to. Since God made us relational beings what is the point if we gather together and worship God but we got a mask on as if all is perfect and sunshine.

How can you get your healing if you tell the very people that God placed around you to help provide that healing? God wants to use them to help you. But they can’t because they don’t know. Whatever the situation is, you are not alone in it. There is another brother or sister that needs to hear about you struggle because they are ready to give up! They think they are the only one just as you do.

Now When sharing your struggles let the holy spirt lead you. Don’t just throw all your stuff out for the wold to see. We will do damage to our self and others.  6 “Don’t waste what is holy on people who are unholy. Don’t throw your pearls to pigs! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you. – Matthew 7:6 NLT Be Real with discernment

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee Revisited 11/6/14 Greater Things

cropped-mc.png

 

“I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father.” (John 14:12 NLT)

Good Morning family! I am having a transparent moment as I write this devotion. At my church, my pastor has been teaching about the cost of being a disciple of Christ. It has challenged me to step my walk. In my quiet time with God I came across the above scripture. It really made me think, I don’t fully realize the magnitude of the calling on my life.

Christ is our example of how we should live our life. When we choose to follow Him, that we will endure all He endured. The way Christ ministered, we will minister. When we become true followers of Christ there is a spiritual DNA transformation that begins to happen. And we begin the process of becoming more like Christ.

God is really calling me to step it up! The time for fooling around is over. God has called me out of darkness and into His marvelous light! We were not saved by grace to sit in a pew and enjoy the view! God has a task for each of us, let us go and take on those tasks. And really walk the road God called us to walk!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee Revisited 9/3/14    I Am God

mc

Read Psalm 46 First!!!

“Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.” (Psalm 46:10 NLT)

Hello family hope all is well. I am writing this devotion in lounge/waiting area of a local hospital. To make a long story short my mom was having some issues with tingling in her face. Airing on the side of caution my dad and I bought her to the emergency room. The doctor and nurse ran a few tests. They could not make an accurate diagnosis, so they suggested they admit her to the hospital. 24 hours later we are still here my mom. Is in good spirits and is ok. We are waiting for the doctor to give us the results of the test.

Monday night as I was lying on the couch in my mother’s room I was asking God why do you have my mother here? She has had this tingling sensation a few years ago and it was resolved without a visit to the hospital. He replied “Do you trust me?” I said yes I do. He replied “Then let me do what I need to do.” At that moment I had to let go, and just let God do what He wanted to do.

As I sit here writing to you it still is not clear why God has my mother here. But one thing is clear, He is God and He is in control. The nurses are saying my mom may go home today based on the test but we just need the doctors final ok. Weather the doctor comes today or tomorrow. I will sit back and let God do whatever he wants to do.

Don’t try to figure out a situation you can’t understand. If God does not instantly reveal to you why you are in that situation just sit back and let Him workout all that He needs to work out.

“Trust in the  lord  with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” (Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT)

BE STILL AND KNOW THAT HE IS GOD!!!

Morning Coffee Revisited: 4/6/15 His Commands

mc

 

“Truly, I love your commands more than gold, even the finest gold. Each of your commandments is right. That is why I hate every false way.” (Psalm 119: 127-128 NLT)

Hello family, I don’t care how long you have lived what you have accomplished. There is nothing more satisfying and fulfilling than knowing that you have pleased God. There is also nothing more gut wrenching that knowing that you have grieved your heavenly father. When I get a “thumbs up” from God I am as high as a kite. When I displease him I am at my lowest. But He speaks to me encouraging me to get up a pursue Him! Our greatest fulfilment is found in our obedience to God, it will not leave us unfulfilled. We will be even more motivated to do as God tells us to do!

Much Love & God Bless
