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

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

Hebrews 11:1

My kids are stuck on this soundtrack lately. It’s to a movie called The Greatest Showman. If you haven’t seen it you should. It’s a secular movie but with many many spiritual parallels all throughout. This morning as I was getting ready, the lyrics to one of the songs kept playing through my mind, like it was on repeat, a cry straight from my heart.

But say that you’ll bring me along

To the world you see

To the world I close my eyes to see

I close my eyes to see”. —A Million Dreams, The Greatest Showman

That last line, “I close my eyes to see” it just kept playing redundantly, touching this place in my spirit that needed refreshing. You see, she is singing about these dreams, they aren’t just big dreams they are “impossible” dreams! New job, moving upstate, starting over, new ministry, or new relationship sort of dreams. The ones Joseph had, the dreams that were so UNBELIEVABLE they had to be from God because no human could even think them up! I am in a season where I just have to close my eyes in order to see all that God is doing… because He is doing those things inside of me. My outside circumstances are changing and will always change but what He is faithfully doing in me, that’s what I long to see.

My faith is built on knowing that God comes through everytime I can’t see the answer. When my inadequacy takes over, when my sin is glaring, when I have just hurt someone so close to me… His faithfulness, his ability to mold me and make a way out of no way- that’s what He uses to fix the situation and to love me back to life. If that doesn’t make you wanna shout… nothing will!

I am CONFIDENT in what I can’t see- knowing that my Jesus is actively and intentionally writing my story, creating every plot twist with my growth and best interest at the center of His  heart for me.

Close your eyes and see what He has for you… don’t just ask Him to show you- actually look beyond what you can see!

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 2/14/18 New

Hello Family,

When God moves you into a new season, the only thing you carry from that season are the lessons learned. If you spiritual mentality changes, your mental mentality has to change to, as well as your physical. You can’t change one part and not affect the others. So as God makes things new in your life, let him sweep out the old let him clean house. Don’t hold anything back from Him. Jesus came that you might have life and life more abundantly.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Thoughts 1/9/18 The Hem Of His Garmet

Hello Family!

21 for she thought, “If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.” – Matthew 9:21 NLT

The woman with the issue of blood heard that Jesus was coming to town. She saw this glimps of an opportunity to get what she needed. All we know is that she fought through a lot of people to be healed, but it is so much deeper than that. In the middle of all that was going on in her like she pushed aside everything else to get a one on one opportunity with the King.

Jesus never came through that town again. Family there are going to be fleeting once in a lifetime moments when God wants you to get something and we cannot be distracted by these insignificant things. some thing that are normal priority in everyday life will need to go on the back burner. Opportunities will come up and you wont have a moment to sit in you quiet time about it. You are going to have to find your peace in the storm! god is always speaking, He does not stop just because your 6 am prayer time ended. WE THE BODY OF CHRIST have to come to a place where we are the peace. a place where we don’t have to pray up the peace but we bring the peace.

 

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Devotions 1/4/18 Limited In Order To Be Limitless

Hello Family!

Rules and Limitations! As a child we role our eyes wishing they we didn’t have them. As we get older we realize that they have a purpose and we even set limits of our own. But deep down that inner child is still there and sometimes even as adults that child will show up and we will cringe at the new rules on our job and wonder why we have to obey them.

God has given us limits and boundaries. A lot are found in the bible but so many more are written on the tablet of our heart. Still more are found written in our DNA and the script of our life and in the design of all creation, each one has its purpose. There are benefits for staying with in these limits but there are also consequences for going beyond them.

The prodigal son found this out the hard way. For a short while he lived limitless but he lived it out side the limits set up by his father and he reaped the consequences. When he returned he found out that the limits his father set up were designed so that his life can be the right kind of limitless. He settled back onto the path his father designed for him So that he could reach his full potential. He was Limited In Order To Be Limitless.

 

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Thoughts 1/2/18 Right Attitude For The Right Altitude

Hello Family!

Happy new year. What frame of mind are you in concerning this new year? Are you missing the old year 2017, are you embracing this new year 2018? The frame of mind you start this year with will set the initial course (path) you will take. If you start off negative you will find your self making avoidable adjustments later on. Yes God does have planned test and trials for us this year but we don’t need to add any to the list. Don’t make things harder than they have to be this year.

Right Attitude For The Right Altitude

Much Love & God Bless

Sunday Thoughts 11/25/17

st

When my life on this planet has expired, let it be said of me that I left no stone unturned. Let it be said of me that I poured out all that God placed in me and the abundance of everything I had to give was given out. Let it be said of me that I Impacted and blessed everyone that ever heard my voice, read any thing that I wrote or were touched by my hand. Let it be said of me that completed the purpose God placed me on this earth.

Much Love & God Bless

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
