Sunday Thoughts 7/30/17

Hello family!

Since I last wrote to you all God has pulled me into a season of spiritual and emotional growth. This season is far from over, to be honest I am not rushing it. In this season i God has connected me with people and He is showing me the impact that He has allowed me to have on there lives. I have formed a special bond with one brother in particular. We have very similar life history and God has used that to only strengthen our growing bond. during one of our nightly phone conversations he said some things that bought me to my knees and humbled me. “I look up to you, I see not only as a friend but a mentor. I see you like a pastor.

I don’t like titles nor do i want one, his words cut straight to my core and bought me to a state of thankfulness. I have not meet this fellow bother face to face yet our communication is via phone calls, text or internet and he is in a different state than i am. i write this with tears in my eyes because it humbles me and blows my mind that God would choose me to have such an impact on someones life.

Much Love & God Bless

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.

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 9/21/16 I Am Glad For The Desperation!

28 Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. – Matthew 11:28 KJV

Hello family, where i live at we have been in a minor drought. On Sunday we got the rain we needed. As the worship was going on, I caught a glimpse of out side. As  i focused my attention out the window i saw that it was raining. The Holy Spirt asked me “What does the rain do to the road surface when it first starts raining?” It brings up all the dirt and oils out and washes them off.

Sunday God let it rain not just in the physical but in the spiritual. Junk that had accumulated over time was washed away and there was a clean slate. I am fresh and renewed. I am grateful for God allowing me to get to a point of desperation. Now i can truly appreciate his healing rain.

He did not leave me to dry up! He let me get to a place where i had no other choice but to look up! I am standing here only because he made away. He released the pressure, he eliminated things that got me off focus! He bought in the monsoon rains to water my heart. I see clearer now I hear him louder. When you are without something that you need. You embrace it when you get it back.      

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 8/5/16 Back Where I belong

Read 1Samuel 16

12 So Jesse sent for him. He was dark and handsome, with beautiful eyes. And the LORD said, “This is the one; anoint him.” – 1 Samuel 16:12 NLT

Hello family, It has been a while since I last wrote to you. In that time away God showed me that this is where i belong. I belong here  with worship music playing in the background multiple translations of the bible open with a cup of coffee at my side. I am anointed to write and pour out what God has given me to share.

David was anointed king long before Samuel poured oil over his head. God placed it with in David’s DNA(see Psalm 139). When God anoints you to do something or to be someone it will show and God will use that anointing that He placed in you. We may stray and get side tracked but eventually we will find our self drawn back to the path God call us to (see Prov 22:6)

I feel so complete right now as i am writing this to you. And even if just one you reads this devotion my mission is a success. 10 “The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. 11 It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it. – Isaiah 55:10-11 NLT

Even King Saul before his downfall fulfilled what God destined him to be. Saul’s reign was tarnished by his pride and jealousy. But he remained on the throne until God removed him. David did have mess ups but he always turned back to God. Your mistakes. It may slow or shorten the time of what God anointed you to do. We can change that by simply Keeping God at the center of our lives.

Family I am back where i belong! I am walking in one of the things God has called me to do! I find my greatest fulfillment when i do God’s will for my life. 

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 4/1/16 Greater Than Your Self

Source: True Happiness

16 Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. 17 And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father. – Colossians 3:16-17 NLT

Hello family, The above picture is from a fellow writer (link to her blog at the bottom). When i read her post it resonated with me. We set goals that we want to accomplish in life. And we pour our time, skills, strength and sometimes blood sweat and tears to see these earthly goals accomplished. For a moment we fill accomplished but then we are looking for the next goal to fulfill us and bring us happiness.

The earthly goals we set usually involve mostly us as far as the human aspect goes. We pray to God to give us success. and (sometimes) He does. We Get that new car,that dream Job, That house. There is nothing wrong with aiming to achieve theses things. But if theses goals were set with selfish ambition they will only leave us looking for the next big thing.

However when our intentions are not set on our self, that house, that car, that Job will be turned into a blessing not just for you but for others as well. I will use my family for example. My mother loves to entertain, she loves to feed people. For ten years God had us (my father, my self, and my mother) in a two bedroom apartment. Yes it was nice but my mom could not bless people the way she desired. Two days before christmas 2014 we moved in to the house we waited for.

And ever since God has used this house to minister to others! Every major holiday (and little points in between) from New Years Day 2015 to Easter 2016 family friends and neighbors have been ministered to. When i think about that, I am filled with so much joy that God can use us, use a personal desire  to make an impact on others that is greater than ourselves. That is true fulfillment.

Morning Coffee 3/30/16 Don’t Say What you Won’t Do!

the new mc banner

Read Daniel 4

25 You will be driven from human society, and you will live in the fields with the wild animals. You will eat grass like a cow, and you will be drenched with the dew of heaven. Seven periods of time will pass while you live this way, until you learn that the Most High rules over the kingdoms of the world and gives them to anyone he chooses. – Daniel 4:25 NLT

Hello family, We can get to comfortable during times of prosperity. When we do that we can begin think we got it all together and hard times won’t hit. This is when God reminds us who is really in charge.

I had a mini Nebuchadnezzar moment. Since i started my job in September of 2015 work hours have not been hard to come by. God blessed me with hours to work, dropped then in my lap. Didn’t have to break a sweat.

I didn’t have to stalk the system for hours to work like my coworkers. I figured that i would never have to stalk, I got it made! Well God showed we other wise. I got up on Tuesday morning expecting the normal availability of dropped hours from other coworkers, there were none! I spent from 7 am to 9:30 am glued to my phone refreshing the system stalking it for the hours i needed to work that day. When i did get the hours i needed The Holy spirit whispered “don’t say what you won’t do, I’m in charge!

Much Love & God Bless
