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

Read Romans 12:1-2

2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. – Romans 12:2 NLT

Hello family, Some bad habits we acquired are from the environment that was around us. God told me to shift my late night environment. He needed me to change up my routine. When I did the results were immediately felt. I am still in an environment shift, a shift toward a more peaceful environment an environment of clarity.

We can have great Godly people around us. And our music be approve by God for us to listen to. But is our routine helping us draw closer to God? Is it cultivating and environment where God can flow?  I hear and feel God the most at night 10:00pm-1:00am That is when God really pulls on me to spend time with Him. Writing was getting in the way of that personal time. So God had me move my written time to the afternoon. So my late nights are free for Him to come in and speak to me.

If you best time with God is at 7 am don’t clog it with other stuff. That time is holy ground. Nothing fills in that space of time. It is reserved For God. Your routine helps create your environment. Ask God where adjustments need to be made and watch things shift for the better.

Much Love & God Bless

Hello family, “Birds of a feather flock together, you are a product of your environment!” These sayings are very true. The people you surround your self with, the music you listen to, the TV shows you watch. It all is absorbed and affects us.

My Pastor and i are very close, we are like brothers (we are brothers.) We have hung out a lot. One day my mother and i were having a conversation and i made a statement (i don’t remember what it was) she stopped me and said pastor is rubbing off on you. I spent so much time with my brother-pastor that i picked up some of his characteristics (good ones). “Hello family” is not my own i got that from him.

Just as i picked up some my brother-pastors characteristics. We will pick up characteristics of God from spending time with Him. If you want to know how to have a good marriage, don’t surround your self with singles, and the divorced.  No, surround you self with couples that have marriages that are standing the test of time and take notes.

God told you to let go of those old friends, let them go! They will drag you back down! Don’t think “I’m gonna lead them to christ!” No! God told you to move on from them so move on! Pray for them but don’t hang out with them. God told you change the music you listen, to do it! Don’t let that old school jam cause you to get in a jam! God will give new uplifting God approved  music to listen to. He will give you new Godly friends, brothers and sisters that will build you up and not tear you down! You are a product of your environment! What is affecting you in your environment?

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 1/29/16 Our Health!

READ DANIEL 1:1-15

15 And at the end of ten days their countenances appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than all the children which did eat the portion of the king’s meat. – Daniel 1:15 KJV

Hello family, God places high value on our spiritual health there is no doubt about that. God is also concerned with our physical  health as well. He wants us to look well and be well, If we let this body go to pot we will not be effective in our God given purpose.

God had Daniel on a special diet for a simple reason, to keep him at his highest fitness. Yes God can use you even if you are not a fitness freak. But if your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit should you not take care of that temple? God has given me some instruction about my eating habits i admit i need to change. He is warning me for a reason. It would be stupid of me to ignore them. I need to be at my best, I can’t be effective if i am sick or in recovery.

Has God told you to put down somethings for the betterment of your physical health? Why be stubborn and ignore it! Whatever it is junk food, smoking, stop being a couch potato and getting more active, drinking less soda and more water. Whatever is that God has been knocking at the door of your heart to do go and do it! It is real hard to be effective in His kingdom if we are not at 100% spiritually and physically. God would not ask you to do anything that was not within your ability. Now go and do as you were commanded it is for our health!!! 

Much Love & God Bless
