Morning Coffee 3/27/17 More of Him And Less Of Your Opinions

READ JOHN 3:22-31

30 He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less. – John 3:30 NLT

Hello family, One thing John the Baptist understood from the day one of his ministry is that he was an open vessel for God to use. John understood that he needed to have himself and all His opinions out of they way so the untainted word of God could flow through him.

Opinions, reservations, prejudices, attitudes we develop from this world must not just be put aside but must be extinguished. Don’t believe me see  2 corinthians 10:5. all too often God has a message to be delivered and he decides to use you as the vessel to deliver it. We receive the message but we look it and try to fix it because it wont bring more followers to our blog or its gonna hurt my best friend feelings or people will move on to another church and stop coming to mine!

Here is a reality check! WHEN IT COMES TO DELIVERING THE MESSAGE HE GAVE YOU, GOD DOESN’T CARE TO HAVE YOU INSERTING YOUR FEELINGS, OPINIONS!  All He wants is for you to daily practice yielding yourself to His will so His work will be accomplished. 

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

Sunday Thoughts 3/19/17

st

What if the fire you are going through was built for your benefit? What if shortcomings are ultimately designed to help to in the long-run? What if that thorn in your side was designed to keep you at the feet of the father? What if The storm was made to give you peace?

Much Love & God Bless

 

 

 

Morning Coffee 3/13/17 Nevertheless

39 He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You [will].” – Matthew 26:39 NKJV

Hello family, Here we truly see that Jesus dealt with the issues of being in human form. He knows what lies ahead. He knew all that he would have to endure. Here is our savior crying out to the heavenly father to provide a way out. But nevertheless he submits to the fathers will.

We all have thought and ideas of how we want our life to go and that is good, we should make plans but also remember that God has full right to totally rearrange them. And He wont force you  to do His plans. He will let you run your self out until you finally come to Him. Why run when you will end up submitting anyway?

We should live our life with a nevertheless at the end instead of a period. In every plan you make don’t put a period on it but put a nevertheless. Why because we are not the captain of our lives God is. We are simply the first officer we can chart a course but the Captain can come in and totally redirect it because there are treacherous waterers to navigate. And He has all the updated maps and charts with the proper depth measurements.

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 9/29/16 You Got This

4 Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. 5 God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. – Ephesians 1:4-5 NLT

Hello family, last night i watched a show called chopped that comes on food network. Four chefs make a three course meal the dishes appetizer, main dish, and desert, from pre chosen ingredients. for each dish that the chefs must use. At the end of each round a chef is chopped.

One chef caught my attention as the show was going through the intros. She was small in stature and more than likely the youngest and least experienced of the four chefs. In her intro she mentioned all that she had accomplished but then she stated that she often doubts her self and her skills. that bothered me because i saw a young woman that had accomplished much and still has great potential. But she didn’t see that she saw her shortcomings.

Long story short, she won! The dishes she put together out shown the dishes of the more experienced chefs. God would not have given you the gifts and talents you have if you were not capable to properly operate in them. He would not have placed you in the job you have if you were not capable of doing it!

Don’t be like Moses or Gideon and pour out a bunch of reasons why you can’t stop doubting and get up and Go!

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 9/1/16 No Insignificance

Hello family, This devotion is a little bit different. Im a bit of a kid at heart, i still eat kids cereal and watch cartoons. One thing i like to do for my favorite cartoons is create my own characters and give them a backstory and write a story about them with the foundations of the original cartoon.

Im a fan of the my little pony cartoon so the other night i was creating the pony in the picture above, her name is Harmony Freedom. i was writing her backstory and i give most of my creations a quote that they live by. God gave me these words for her quote “I may be blind but God has given me a vision. I am a light to a world full of hopelessness.”- Harmony Freedom.

I sat back and re-read the quote aloud several times. Family, all to often we look at our limitations, and disabilities and tell God you can’t use me! Leave me alone! We forget who God is, we forget that He is the one that makes us strong in our weakness. If you were to read Harmony freedoms bio you would see that she was born blind and she lost her parents tragically. All reasons to give up and say i can’t  But see God is the light at the end of every dark tunnel. you see harmony freedom was adopted by loving parents that only saw the potential in her the awesome musical talent placed in her.

God is the light at the end of your dark tunnel, He’s not a train coming to run you over. He wants to shift your focus from what you can’t do to what you can do! Helen Keller was blind and deaf but she did not let that stop her from leaving a lasting impact on this world. “8 Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. 9 Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” – 2 Corinthians 12:8-9 NLT

“I may be blind but God has given me a vision. I am a light to a world full of hopelessness.”- Harmony Freedom.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 8/30/16 Can’t Stay Like This

11 When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. – 1 Corinthians 13:11 NLT

Hello family, This new season i am in has called for a shift in me that i can no longer delay. As the seasons change we too must change with them.

I am 30 years old and to be honest it does not feel like i thought it would. So far its felt like turning twenty. I”ve seen glimpses of what God has in store for me and i am excited. But in order for these things to come to pass it requires surrender to be honest has been an uphill battle for me. But i got to surrender to God what he want from me. I will not be passed by in this season. My time of idleness is over! Surrender! I know that in the end i will game so much more than what i give up.

Much Love & God Bless
