Morning Coffee 5/24/17 2 Lions (Poem)

2 Lions

My mind is a battle ground.

My heart is the prize

With in me are two lions fighting for strength and size.

This battle never ends it never goes

it only ebbs and flows.

This battle is not something I choose.

The two lions do not fight with there teeth or roars.

These lions use words that when acted on can open diffrent doors

The crazy thing about this battle is i decide who wins.

These loins call for my attention and time

they seek to have all my focus

ether one can devour me like a plague of locust.

One lion screams world lust

the other shouts in God we trust.

One lion is boom the other is bust.

So here i am caught in the middle

My flesh and Gods will

I can’t treat this like its lets make a deal.

Because the choices i make will have a lasting impact

The choices i make will leave me tattered or standing intact.

2 lions, my mind is the battle ground

My heart is the prize that leads to my soul.

One lion will leave you broken but the other will make you whole.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 3/20/17 I Don’t Understand It (But I Will Obey)

READ EXODUS 3:1-4

4 And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here [am] I. – Exodus 3:4 KJV

Hello family, I don’t fully understand all that God as set before me. What i do know is that He has called me and I must answer. I cannot turn away from the “burning bush” He has set before me. He has called me for such a time as this!

God is presenting “burning bushes” to those He has chosen and they have to answer. You may not fully understand the “burning bush” in front of you but it is the first step you must take to accomplish all that God has for you. Don’t try and force it, if you do you will just burn out. It is God operating in you that will show you how to get things done. 19 When you are arrested, don’t worry about how to respond or what to say. God will give you the right words at the right time. 20 For it is not you who will be speaking–it will be the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. – Matthew 10:19-20 NLT

Keep your ear to the ground so that you will sense where the spirt is leading. Be on high alert, be watching and ever ready for when God tells you to move. The time now is so incredibly critical. Just as Ester received and acted on the wisdom of her uncle Mordecai. It is such a time as this that you act and  move according to the Holy Spirit.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 11/22/16 Roll Up Your Sleeves

Read Romans 13:1-7

1 Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. 2 So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished. – Romans 13:1-2 NLT

Hello family, Weather you like it or not Donald J. Trump will be come the next president of the United States Of America. God permitted this to happen. Now be for you get  righteously angry with me. reread the opening scripture. “Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished.” – Romans 13:1-2 NLT

Is it time to stress, is it time to worry, is it time to grumble and complain? No! Now is the time to pray (if you haven’t been start). Now is the time to take our positions in God’s kingdom (if we haven’t already). Now is the time to remember that no man can override God. We don’t react to what Trump says or any other person but we act according to what the Holy Spirt says. “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

If you think about what CNN says and worry about what FOX news is doing, you are not going to follow what God is telling you to do. Yeah Trump is gonna be president, big deal! To be honest i don’t care who sits in that oval office. Because God is in control! let me say it again, i don’t care who sits in that oval office. Because God is in control! And just maybe God allowed this to get our attention. Maybe He did this to shake us from our cushy american dream world.Now is not the time for panic. Now is the time to roll up our sleeves!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 7/5/16 Compose Your Self (This Is your Moment)

Read 2Timothy 1:1-7

7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. – 2 Timothy 1:7 NLT

Hello family, When I read this scripture, I think of a warrior preparing themselves for battle. They have been fully trained for what lies ahead and now it is time to apply the training. Paul is basically giving Timothy a pep talk to keep him fired up.

When we step out to do what God told us to do there will be steps that we won’t be notified of until we need to make them. At these moments we must keep our composure. We cannot get scattered during these critical moments. I like to know every step ahead but this year has not been the case. And i have had to keep moving as God planned.

Keep building the gifts God gave you, keep training, keep working the plan God is giving you. This is your moment! Remember God cannot be caught off guard he knows what lies ahead! So breathe deep and move forward!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 5/6/16 Low Income Mentality

the new mc banner

Read Matthew 24:14-30

18 But the servant who received the one bag of silver dug a hole in the ground and hid the master’s money. – Matthew 25:18 NLT

Hello family, A child came down from playing with her toys. She saw her father sitting quietly by the fireplace. She quietly approached him putting her hand on his. He turned, smiled and picked her up into his lap. They sat in the warm glow of the fire for a while. The father discerning his daughter, asked “is there something you want to ask me?”

The child nodded yes. “What is it that you want ask?” the father replied. “Some new dollies please daddy?” The father stood up still holding his child, “Come lets go to your room.” when they came to the room it was a sight to behold. Dresses, little shoes dolls lay everywhere, it was a total mess. The father looked at his daughter and said, “Do you remember me telling you if you want better toys, you have to take good care of the ones you have?”

The daughter protested, “But it’s too hard daddy i can’t clean this up! It takes to much time to organize them!” Clearing his throat the father sat his daughter down on the messy bed and sat next to her and said, “Well with an attitude like that you wont be getting new dolls.”

Do you have a low income mentality? Do you dream of great things but when you see the leg work that needs to be done for those things, you back off? Has God said to you “go take good care of what you have!” Only to let it fall by the wayside?

I will be the first to rase my hand! i have had a low income mentality. God provided me with certain gifts and abilities. I want to go higher but Daddy keeps saying, “Do well with what you got!” and my reply is “It’s too hard!” If it was too hard, if you could not take good care of it. If you could not be a Good steward over the ministries, the gifts, the talents, the mission, the car, the house, the family that He (God) gave you. If you could not do it He would not have given it to you!

Stop looking at your situation as impossible! It is well with in your God given ability! We do not have a low income of anything! Our Daddy God got it all!  (read Psalm 50:10) As you take better care of the things in front  of you, He will keep fueling you from his limitless resources!

You can’t put more gas in a car with a full tank. God is saying, “I have placed in you all you need to get started.” As you drive along and need more gas or a bigger this or more powerful that, He will add it. But only if you have the right mindset to handle it.

No more low income mentality! Don’t burry you one talent in fear. We don’t live by that! Go and grow what God gave you!

  

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 3/8/16 Let Go Of The Pinky

the new mc banner

Read Matthew 10

1 Jesus called his twelve disciples together and gave them authority to cast out evil spirits and to heal every kind of disease and illness. – Matthew 10:1 NLT

Hello family, When I was a toddler learning how to walk i would hold on to my mothers hand for security and stability. Over time my legs grew stronger and my balance improved. But still i clung to the pinky finger of my mothers hand. She would resist and shake my little hand free urging me to walk on my own but i still wanted to hold on.

Jesus did not wait until He was leaving to send out the disciples. While He was still with them, He gave them the authority to heal and cast out evil spirits. He gave them instructions on how to conduct themselves and what to take and not to take.

Im sure there may have been some apprehension in some of the disciples but they still went and did as Jesus told them. Has God recently pushed you out of your comfort zone and said “Go I give you Authority to (fill in the blank)?

Well, then? get up and do it if God said you can walk then walk! Let go of his pinky and Go do What he as told you to do! Go Get it!!!!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 2/29/16 It’s Simple Just Let Go!

Read Proverbs 3:1-8

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. – Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV

Hello family, my family and I were watching a show called air disasters. The show was covering the crash of a Russian passenger plain in 1994. This was a crash that was preventable. Long story short the pilot had allowed his son to sit in his seat, while the son was in his seat the pilot disabled the auto pilot for a few seconds to allow the son to turn the control stick then re engaged the autopilot.

But when the auto pilot re engaged, the son was still turning the control stick so the things did not go back to normal they panicked in the process they lost control of the plane and crashed. The pilots  tried all they knew to do to regain control of the plan fighting it to the end. The Investigators linked up  the clues as to why this crash happened.

Although the autopilot was turned back on it did not have full control of all the systems, that system was the system that controlled the turning of the plane that system was still in control of the boy when things went bad. All the pilots had to do to correct every thing was let go of the control stick and let the autopilot take full control and level the plane.

Sadly we do the same in our own lives. God will have everything running nice then we decide we want to have a little fun and take control when we should not. When we realize the danger we do give control back to God (autopilot) but not full control we keep our hand on the controls fighting what God is trying to fix. He won’t force us to give Him full control, He will take what we give Him although He wants it all. And what we try to do fails or it is not as successful as it could have been.

Just let go!!!! God understands you messed up and you want it to be fixed. Well, let Him fix it! Stop trying to help Him, God don’t need your help you are the one in need of help! God will fix it we just have to let Go and go back to being a passenger.

Morning Coffee 2/25/16 I See (Poem)

the new mc banner

I see… I see… I see that i am not my own, free to roam without any repercussion. All of my actions produce a reaction that will either lead to life or destruction. I see that I cannot escape the responsibility of the calling you placed on my life.

From the day of my birth, You orchestrated my life on this earth. No matter how far I strayed you were able to reign me in. I see… I see… that obedience is necessary! I see that in order for the Jericho wall to fall, i… have to completely surrender my all!

Answering a call to the alter is just an empty parade. It is from the inside out this sinful nature fades. I see… I see lord. Only through you will my life mission be accomplished. Not by my hand but, In your time, In Your strength, In your will, it will be done!

I see and I answer to the things you call me to!         

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 2/16/16 I Won’t Complain!

3 “If only the LORD had killed us back in Egypt,” they moaned. “There we sat around pots filled with meat and ate all the bread we wanted. But now you have brought us into this wilderness to starve us all to death.” – Exodus 16:3 NLT

Hello family, While in the wilderness the Israelites did a lot of complaining. God was providing for there every need, He kept there clothing from getting old, He provided sweet water for them to drink and more! But They still found something to complain about wishing they were back in Egypt.

My Job right now in on a low swing there are not many hours to work. Some of my co-workers are wishing that they did not have this job because how hard it is to get hours. I said to myself ‘at least you got a job to fight for hours for! See family this position was ten years in the making, God had to prepare me for it! When i got it he told me there will be low times like this.

I am not going to allow a single thought of complaint to dwell in my mind. Why because i could be one of the thousands still looking for employment. But no I’m in a position where i know there will be hours available i just have to look harder.  I am not going to wish for another job I waited ten years for this one! Its not perfect but it fits my life style perfectly with all my needs.

In the time i am not working i will be working on other projects God wants me to do. I will not complain, God is providing for me! 

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 2/8/16 Where You Running To? Pt2

the new mc banner

READ 1 KINGS Chapter 19:11-13

11 “Go out and stand before me on the mountain,” the LORD told him. And as Elijah stood there, the LORD passed by, and a mighty windstorm hit the mountain. It was such a terrible blast that the rocks were torn loose, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. – 1 Kings 19:11 NLT

Hello family, Sometimes God has to show us his might to remind us that we had no reason to run in the first place. God provided for Elijah even while he was running and to put the cherry on top he displays His power on the moutian.

We have no reason to doubt what God placed in us. We should be like Shadrach Meshach and Abednego, willing to stare danger in the face and not budge eve when our life is on the line. Even if our life ends at that moment, we will be rewarded for our faithfulness. It’s not easy to stand your ground when you are faced with danger. But this is something we must do, this world is getting more and more away from God. And we are going to have to relish on and remember the GOD we serve! 

Much Love & God Bless
