Morning Coffee 8/17/14 flash back     Follow Me

“One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers—Simon, also called Peter, and Andrew—throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living.  Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!”    And they left their nets at once and followed him. A little farther up the shore he saw two other brothers, James and John, sitting in a boat with their father, Zebedee, repairing their nets. And he called them to come, too.  They immediately followed him, leaving the boat and their father behind.” (Matthew 4:18-22 NLT)

Yes I know you may have heard and read this passage of scripture multiple times. But there is a reason you are reading this today. So before we continue drop the “I heard this before!” attitude. And open you heart and mind to what the Lord wants you to receive!

Ok!  Simon ( a.k.a.Peter), Andrew, James, And John have abandoned the family businesses to follow Jesus. Let’s put things into perspective. These four men have just left their jobs, there main source of income, to follow Christ! That just blows my mind! But when God calls you, you answer. You see these events were already laid out. Long before these first four disciples were born, it was already stitched into their DNA that they would be Disciples of Christ. “For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he  predestined us for adoption to sonship  through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will” (Ephesians 1:4-5 NLT)

God saw fit to call you into His service. There are ministries He has planted in you that He will use bless others and bring Glory to His Name. Don’t stress about how these ministries will come about. When the time is right God will call you to do what He has placed In you. Some of these things you may already know, others are waiting to be un locked. And when He does call you out it won’t be because of anything you did. When He calls you, you will know it and you will follow!

 

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee Flashback 8/2/14 Pretty Enough To Take You Down

mc

“Then Delilah pouted, “How can you tell me, ‘I love you,’ when you don’t share your secrets with me? You’ve made fun of me three times now, and you still haven’t told me what makes you so strong!”  She tormented him with her nagging day after day until he was sick to death of it. Finally, Samson shared his secret with her. “My hair has never been cut,” he confessed, “for I was dedicated to God as a Nazirite from birth. If my head were shaved, my strength would leave me, and I would become as weak as anyone else.” Delilah realized he had finally told her the truth, so she sent for the Philistine rulers. “Come back one more time,” she said, “for he has finally told me his secret.” So the Philistine rulers returned with the money in their hands.  Delilah lulled Samson to sleep with his head in her lap, and then she called in a man to shave off the seven locks of his hair. In this way she began to bring him down, and his strength left him. Then she cried out, “Samson! The Philistines have come to capture you!” When he woke up, he thought, “I will do as before and shake myself free.” But he didn’t realize the Lord had left him.” (Judges 16:15-20 NLT)

We all have it.  It’s called an alkalis heel, that one thing that captivates our flesh. In Sampson’s case it was women. He was so captivated by her that he did not see the many warning signs. By the time he realized what happen it was too late.

We all have a weak spot, we are not impenetrable. But God beading as gracious as He is, will send us warning signs that we are getting our self into something that can take us out. Sampson got his first warning from his mother and father. (Read Judges 14) Sampson didn’t take head to his parents warning. Little did he know that his desire for the beautiful philistine women would be his downfall. Sampson lost his anointing the same way the philistine’s solved his riddle. His wife kept begging and nagging until he gave up his secret. With his first wife it cost him a riddle but with Delilah it cost him so much more.

The enemy will attack us where we fell before. We need to take note of the pattern in which we are tempted. Take note of the things that attract us. It may not be something as big as lust for the opposite sex. It could be something as simple as playing tennis. Whatever it is, if it draws you away from God, it is pretty enough to take you down.

 

Much love & God Bless

What Am I Supposed To Be?!

Here I am!

Here I am, in a world with so many differences.

In a world with so many choices.

There are so many paths

If I only knew what to do!

They all can’t be true!

I am gifted at so much!

Sometimes the inspiration is too much!

I need focus!

God you created me! You breathed life into me!

You set me on this path and I’m walking it.

But sometimes I feel i never measure up to it!

Give me a focus, give me a line of sight!

I’m tired of wondering if what i am doing is right!

What am i supposed to be?

Show me what is worth fighting for

Show me what is worth shedding my blood sweat and tears.

Come into my darkness and expose my fears!

You are my identity!

I need you to identify me!

Because this world is trying to define  me!

Like aladdin you show me a whole new world!

Well give me the GPS so i can navigate it.

and become who you want me to be!

Renew my mind and show me

WHAT I AM SUPPOSED TO BE!
