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!

“My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground” – Hillsong United Touch The Sky

Is this world so valuable and important that we don’t HEAR, SEE, TASTE, TOUCH AND SMELL, the goodness of the Lord? We are eagles that can soar but we have fallen in love with the comforts of our nest. We will soar only when we are completely surrendered.

Much Love & God Bless

 

 

 

Sunday Thoughts 6/18/17 Empty Storehouse

st

Our world needs Christ right now. And the only way the world (people) is going to get to Christ is through us. But first our storage must be empty and available for God to fill up. A storehouse is a great place to get food but what kind of food is it? If your storehouse is giving out moon pies and cupcakes, you would be doing your fellow man a disservice. There is a reason why Jesus said let go of your life (way of thinking, your ideas, your world view) pick up your cross and follow Him.

Much Love & God Bless

“It is finished!” Those were Christ’s last words. “It is finished’ means exactly what it says! With those three words tore the vail and granted us access to unlimited resources! Yes we will go through trials but we should not go through them with a defeated attitude. Last time i checked the tomb is still empty!

Much Love & God Bless

Sunday Thoughts 6/4/17

I am writing this in my sanctuary, my place of refuge, my place of restoration. This sanctuary has no pulpit, there are no pews simply an office chair and a bed behind it. There are no multicolored stained glass windows. Most of the color comes from the collectable pony figures carefully arranged underneath the two computer monitors.

There are no ushers here, only my broken and will heart ready to usher in his presence. In this place i am instantly connected with my heavenly father and he can proceed to operate on my life. it is here away from the chaos of life that i truly find rest. Weather at my desk or underneath an oak tree. i know I can always find my secret place my sanctuary!

Much Love & God Bless

Firs before you read. play the youtube video below.

11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. – Ephesians 6:11-12 NLT

Our battle is not against President Trump, our battle is not against the abortion clinics, our battle is not against LGBT. Our battle is not against ISIS, our battle is not against the rapist or any other criminal. Our battle is not against another ethnic group. Our battle is not against any of these symptoms.

Our battle is against The SIN system that satan and his demons have set up against the kingdom of God.

REDIRECT YOUR AIM! YOU A SHOOTING AT THE WRONG TARGET!

Much Love & God Bless

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 6/28/16 You Can Have It Just Wait

27 I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified. – 1 Corinthians 9:27 NLT

Hello family, Right now God is teaching me self control. There are a few things i want and God said i can have them i just need to wait. It is hard waiting especially when i can go get it now! But i am seeing that when i rush in, giving in to the temptation to get the things i want now, it leads to more stress that if i would have waited.

God may have said you can have it but he says wait until this date or until this happens. Have some self-control. you will get it just wait. You will have so much more joy if you waited and no stress. your mind says go get it you can have it all now! Discipline put it in check that voice, wait on Gods green light. 

Much Love & God Bless
