Morning Coffee 5/24/17 2 Lions (Poem)

2 Lions

My mind is a battle ground.

My heart is the prize

With in me are two lions fighting for strength and size.

This battle never ends it never goes

it only ebbs and flows.

This battle is not something I choose.

The two lions do not fight with there teeth or roars.

These lions use words that when acted on can open diffrent doors

The crazy thing about this battle is i decide who wins.

These loins call for my attention and time

they seek to have all my focus

ether one can devour me like a plague of locust.

One lion screams world lust

the other shouts in God we trust.

One lion is boom the other is bust.

So here i am caught in the middle

My flesh and Gods will

I can’t treat this like its lets make a deal.

Because the choices i make will have a lasting impact

The choices i make will leave me tattered or standing intact.

2 lions, my mind is the battle ground

My heart is the prize that leads to my soul.

One lion will leave you broken but the other will make you whole.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 4/10/17 Ask Not What Your God Can Do For You! But Ask What You Can Do For Your God!

READ ROMANS  12:1-2

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service. – Romans 12:1 KJV

Hello family, Ask Not What Your God Can Do For You! But Ask  What You Can Do For Your God! Let’s be honest with our selves, we ask God for a lot! Majority of it is for self benefit. As this year has progressed God has been shifting my mindset from “God do for me!” to “God what can i do for you!” It’s not that i don’t ask Him for things for myself. It’s me coming into my personal time with God. With the mindset of a soldier reporting for duty, ready to execute His will.

We are in a time where we cannot get comfortable. we really should be doing the opposite. we should be prepared and expecting to be placed out of our comfort zone. I never met a soldier that fought with fuzzy bunny slippers on with a remote in there hand with a jumbo bag of popcorn. When God calls report for duty!

   Ask Not What Your God Can Do For You! But Ask  What You Can Do For Your God!

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

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 2/20/17 Whats Next?

I gave you land you had not worked on, and I gave you towns you did not build–the towns where you are now living. I gave you vineyards and olive groves for food, though you did not plant them. “So fear the LORD and serve him wholeheartedly. Put away forever the idols your ancestors worshiped when they lived beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt. Serve the LORD alone. But if you refuse to serve the LORD, then choose today whom you will serve. Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates? Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live? But as for me and my family, we will serve the LORD.” – (Joshua 24:13-15 NLT)

Hello family, During our life we will see many mountain tops. We will have many victories. Often we sometimes find our self standing on a mountain top wandering what next. We feel great that we have had this awesome victory. But now all the confetti has fallen, the buzz is fading and we feel God start to move and shift our seasons.

What Next God? This question was posed to me by one of my spiritual fathers. At the time a had so much in me i could not give a sold answer. But I was not asked that question to provide him with a right or wrong answer. The question was a challenge for me to not rest on my laurels. It was a challenge meant to push me forward into perusing God for the next step.

Everyday we are given the choice to serve the gods of this world. Or serve the true and living God. Everyday we are face with a what next. And that answer can only come from God. Because each day is a new day with a different mission, another step on this journey called life and we can get pulled off by stuff that will make us feel good. Our purpose is not to feel good! But to make as big of an impact as we can with our God given talents. We will always need to know what is next. That is why many times God wont let us rest to long, He has a plan for us that he needs us to carry out. There are many more mountain tops to stand on. So continue to pursue God. Celebrate all he has done in your life but keep moving forward.

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.

Much Love & God Bless

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
