Morning Coffee 3/28/18 Stand

Hello Family,

Have you been a support for a brother or sister? God used you in the process to help draw them out of there darkness and into the light God. And you continue to uplift them, support them and encourage them. You watch as they walk through doors that only God can open. And even when they focus on the one tiny dark cloud in there life, you are the one to lift there head and show them all the God given sunshine around them. Only to hang up the phone and face the storm clouds in your own life. You wonder “God where is my cheerleader?!  Where is my door that no man can shut?!” You look all around you and you see your high school classmates getting married and building families and/or careers. You look back at your self and wonder where you went wrong!

Im here to say to you, you have not made a wrong turn! You are on the right track. I know the world says “nice guys/girls finish last” and it’s tempting to take things in your own hand start making things happen. But know this “The flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all.” – The Emperor, Mulan (1998) God has you on a different course than your friends, thant the rest of this world. So when they have peaked, you will be just getting started. The last flower too bloom also last the longest. So keep standing and watch God work.

 

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 3/18/18 I Am Not (Poem)

 

I….

I am not your el shaddai

I am not your God that sits on high

My name is not a strong tower

if you run in, i can’t guarantee your safety

I am not the one who walks on water

so don’t cry to me “Lord save me!”

I cannot walk out you salvation and expect to keep my own

I need time to go to the table to feed me!

Yes I know our tradition

but i have moments when i need God so let me be!

I can lead a horse to water but i cant make him drink

yes things are good but i cant always be there when things start to sink.

I am not the bruised reed that will not break.

If i bend to far i will break!

Im am doing my best to point you to the source

but i guess you will learn as life runs its course.

 

 

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 2/16/18 Prayer For The Future

Heavenly Father,

I trust you in the future that you are leading me to. I take my hands off the wheel and let you have your way. I will only move when you say move, and i will stay when you tell me to stay. I don’t see every step on my path but I am trusting you that you have ordered every step that i need to take. Even when the valley of the shadow of death surrounds me, I will not fear. Because you go before me clearing the path and lighting the way. You are my help, you are my way maker, you are my light in the darkness that is who you are. I trust you God lead me and I will follow. In Jesus name Amen!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 9/25/17 Two Heartbeats

Hello family, I want you to take a minute to find your pulse or put you hand on you chest and find your heartbeat. Do you feel it, is your heartbeat fast or is it slow? We can get  basic info about how we are doing just by simply feeling our pulse or heartbeat.

There are two heartbeats we should be constantly monitoring. The first is the heartbeat of God. As a matter of fact we should be directly plugged in to the cadence of His heart, so we can identify when, where and how God is moving. The second heartbeat is the heart beat of this world. We don’t connect with it like we do with the heart of God, we simply monitor the vital signs.

“But the world is against God, why monitor its heartbeat?” So you can know how to minister to the environment around you. If God places people in your path and you don’t take time to see them with God’s eyes. We won’t minister to them at all or we will minister to them in the wrong way. And they will be worse off than before. But when we are linked up and in sync with God’s heart beat and we are monitoring the heartbeat of this world we can truly be effective in our area of influence.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 6/21/16 Don’t Wait!

Hello family, I am writing this with a heavy heart. A friend of mine has passed on from this life on to His eternal rest. I am happy for him because he is no longer suffering. At the same time I hurt not just because he is gone but becauase God was showing me the signs and i did not act on them.

I had opportunities to see Him one more time but i did not act on these opportunities. I just assumed He would get better and things would be ok. But that was not meant to be. This past Friday god called him home. I regret not calling him more i regret not listening to the warning signs. family do not wait till tomorrow to heal wounds, to make amends do it now! tomorrow is not promised.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 6/16/16 What Now? (poem)

the new mc banner

Read Psalm 23

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. – Psalm 23:2 KJV

Hello family, this poem is where i am at right now. i pray it blesses you.

What Now? You got me out here in the middle of ocean. You picked me up and dropped me in fathoms deep. You are leading me, but where to? You have me and i am stable, you say trust me. But right now i don’t feel capable.

I want to stay where it is warm and comfortable. Let me be here where i can see the path and wont stumble. No. Like a young eagle you push me out by making the nest uncomfortable. You say “i am doing something new.” i wish i could stay in the place where i know everything to do.

I digress… You are my shepherd and must follow. I just wanted to let you know how i feel. In spite of my feelings i will walk by the faith you have given me. Can’t promise you i wont doubt but it is you i cannot go without. You are my shepherd and i will follow

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 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 2/9/16 How Great Is Our God

the new mc banner

11 For the Scriptures say, “‘As surely as I live,’ says the LORD, ‘every knee will bend to me, and every tongue will confess and give praise to God.'” – Romans 14:11 NLT

Hello family, Often when singing in worship I find myself at a point where i am totally lost in God’s presence and wish I could shoot out of this mortal body straight to heaven. I come to point where I have no word only tears of joy to express my worship. Very often i will reply a song many time over and it not getting old because God is speaking to me through it! Here is a poem of worship to our awesome God!

Space and time are in your hands! The universe in all its expanse can be balanced on the tip of your finger.  I observe the typography of my own fingertip, each line carefully drawn and sculpted by you. I see the freckled birthmark on my left arm and realize how in credibly detailed you are!

How great are you!

I see the sky your ever-changing canvas. And i think How can you say there is no God? To believe that this entire planet let alone the universe just started by all itself just does not make sense! There are to many systems, to much beauty, too many laws created by You God to say there is nothing controlling all of this.

How great are you!

We have barley scratched the surface of what we know about this blue planet you placed us on. We are finding hidden wonders like the giant crystal caves in the Naica mines of Mexico. We can only speculate about what we see in the pictures of the Hubble space telescope. we still haven’t made a scratch into the vastness of space.

There is no word in any language on earth to fully describe You!

How great are you!!!!IMG_73481
