Morning Coffee 10/26/16 Give Your Eyes

Read Matthew 9:35-38

36 But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly [is] plenteous, but the labourers [are] few; – Matthew 9:36-37 KJV

Hello family, I am writing to you with hurting heart. I met a young man in a My little pony fan artist group I’m in on social media. We struck up conversation and exchanged art work. one of my works that i shared was christian themed. He replied “you’er a christian?” I said yes. There was a long pause before his next message. He replied “I used to be a christian but not any more.”

At that moment my heart began to ache. i asked what happened he replied “I fell in love with a guy.” The ache in my heart grew. Our conversation continued. Before he signed off he said, “I know what the bible says about homosexuality i know its wrong but I’m in love with this guy. It’s too late for me.” I replied its not too late as long as you are breathing it is not to late!

God had out paths cross for a reason God, had me join this fan club for a purposes much deeper than the sharing enjoyment of a carton with others. Since i have been in this group i have stared a christian version of the group and it is steadily growing as God sees fit.

God has destined us to met certain people, He wants to use us too draw the people to Him. But if we are not seeing this world if we are not seeing the people around us with God’s eyes we will miss the opportunity to be used by God. Ask God to give you His eye so you can see every broken heart.

Please ply the song in the link below

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 10/13/16 Not This Mountain Again

Read Number 8:5-6

We even saw giants there, the descendants of Anak. Next to them we felt like grasshoppers, and that’s what they thought, too!” NLT

Hello family, for me this week has been about overcoming mountains that i have been wandering around. By gods grace I am finally moving past these mountains. So i can walk forward to the next step.

God could not bring the Israelites into the promise land in there fearful doubtful state. he had to eliminate the things that were getting in the way. Sometimes we get in God’s way and hinder our own process like the Israelites. God will let us hit out baby toe a few times until we see that we are being our own worst enemy. Sometimes we are the ones that need to be removed.

And when we finally get out of God’s way He can then move us forward into what he has for us next. Get over this mountain! Don’t find your self coming back to it saying. Not this mountain again!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 10/12/16 Simple

Read 1 Romans 8:5-6

Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. – Romans 8:5 NLT

Hello family, Last night after i finished writing. I took a step of obedience. I did work on my book, I kicked procrastination to the corner and got a decent amount of work done. When i awoke i felt that he was please with me.

When God says go we sometimes look for the big complicated steps to take, when God is keeping it simple for us. Taking that first step is as simple as a simple act of obedience. That will open up more opportunities and it will become more joyful to take these steps. Just follow the leading of the holy spirt. and watch what happens.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 10/11/16 Like David

Read 1Samuel 17:1-10

Goliath stood and shouted a taunt across to the Israelites. “Why are you all coming out to fight?” he called. “I am the Philistine champion, but you are only the servants of Saul. Choose one man to come down here and fight me! – 1 Samuel 17:8

Hello family, Ever read the stories of david and see all that God gave him the ability to conqurer? Ever walk away from those stories feeling like you can take on the world, only to have them stolen when a trial comes or God gives you a task that seems to much?

You know within your self God has poured in the drive and the capability to do more and take on more. But your stuck on GO, when you know you should be on Park Place with six hotels and twenty houses. You ask yourself why am i still standing here? Thats me that is where i am right now.

I mentioned that I’m putting together my first devotional book earlier this year. I started out on fire but now things have slowed and its my doing. I should have had the book done by now but because of procrastination it wont be out till late November.

Goliath issued a challenge that David answered. The antagonizing words of the philistine hit davids spirit and David acted on it. This stories stir us for a reason, when these scripture stir you up don’t go to sleep on them be like David and act on them

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 10/6/16 You Need Both!

Read John 14:1-18

17 He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you. – John 14:17 NLT

11 And the people of Berea were more open-minded than those in Thessalonica, and they listened eagerly to Paul’s message. They searched the Scriptures day after day to see if Paul and Silas were teaching the truth. – Acts 17:11 NLT

Hello family, when we study God’s word, when we research a message we heard, we will need God’s word. but also we will need to hear his holy spirit. You see even before the speaker finishes the message. The holy spirit will give you warning signs. he may even urge you to research the person you are listening to.

When studying the scriptures pray and ask the holy spirit to reveal what you are reading. Don’t go in haphazardly. Read and study with purpose and intent, letting the holy spirit lead you to truth. We can’t be a bible scholar and not open our ear to the voice of the holy spirit. And we can’t be all super spiritual ether we need balance of both in our lives. They compliment one another. So seek God in your quiet time but also be ready to open you bible.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 10/5/16 What Purpose Does It Serve

Read Luke 12:13-30

21 “Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God.” – Luke 12:21 NLT

Hello family, last night i watched a show about wealthy people who bought secluded islands and built multi million dollar mansions on them. One house caught the attention of my mother and i. The owner had spared no expense to build his castle. He talked about how strong it was and how long it will stand the test of time and, i will admit the house was impressive.

But my mom commented “He has all of that and it is nice, but is he filled with joy?” I reflected on all that God has blessed me with and i thanked Him for it. I also reflected on the things i asked God for but did not give me. I also thanked Him for not giving me those things.

I have had some awesome luxuries in my life and i have enjoyed them. These luxuries were not just for me. God used them to bless others in my sphere of influence. God does bless us with some of our wants. When we get them we should not boast in them. or become so attached that we can’t give it up to some one who needs it.

I have been so blessed to share with others what God has blessed me with. Because it is serving a greater purpose than for myself. I don’t want to leave this earth like the rich man. If my barns are filled to overflowing, i want to feed the city. I don’t want to be the one that accumulates a lot and it is all for selfish gain. I don’t want that as my legacy. Whatever wealth (not just material wealth) God gives me, i want it to overflow into the cups of those around me. After all we are simply stewards over everything we have in our life. We own nothing! Not even our life!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 10/3/16 Just Be Still

Read Luke 10:38-42

39 Her sister, Mary, sat at the Lord’s feet, listening to what he taught. – Luke 10:39 NLT

Hello family, sometimes when we are adjusting to a new season. We get eager and look for the nearest button to push or adjustmeant to make. But God wants us to just be filled by Him. I’m coming out of a season where i was at a constant go. But now has shifted the pace.

Our new church has morning prayer before the main service begins. I am a part of the media team. For the past three weeks i would sit at the audio desk like Spiderman waiting for my “spider senses” to tingle and point me in the direction of the issue that needed fixing. I found my self being over ready trying to do too much.

The brothers that are in charge of the audio and video encouraged me week after week to relax we are a team. You don’t have to carry the load by your self. This past Sunday my family and i arrived late, i walked through the door and everything was ok. The brother training me, motioned me over. He showed me the play list for worship and said to me “this is all you have to worry about i fixed the volume and set it all right ill be here with you. Just worry about the song order.”

I got a chance to be poured into by God during prayer and worship because i stop going hundred miles an hour. God has slowed me down and sat me at his feet to receive from Him.

We can become so used to pouring out that it seems strange when God slows us down to heal us and fill us up. When God slows your pace, don’t try to keep going at the previous speed. Slow down clear your mind and be fill up.

Much Love & God Bless
