Morning Coffee 1/30/18 Pour In

Hello family,

How do we keep our way pure, how do we keep out and remove the impurities that contaminate our heart? It is all to easy to clothe ourself in fear, bitterness, lust, dishonesty and all the other clothing this world offers. They are like the name brand clothing in the stores. They look good and feel good. But they cost us so much more that what we can afford.

There is a small good feeling that comes from holding on to your anger and allowing it to become biterness but we pay for it with our health. Unlike clothing these things reside within us. So the only way to get it out is not pouring it out leaving us empty but to pour in love. (see 1 Corinthians 13:4-8) And when love starts to pour in, it wont alway be instant. But it will be a process because in order to remove impurities and keep them out love has to be constantly poured in, see Psalm 119:9-16 it applies to more than just young men.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 1/24/18 The Process Of Your Greatness

READ PSALM 91 FIRST

Hello family.

If you are a son or daughter of the most high God. You are designed to be great, Christ blood rewires your DNA and programs it for greatness. Now you are probably feeling pretty pretty pumped up right now. But in order for that greatness to be bought out of you. You are going to get wounded deeply, you are going to walk through some valleys of the shadow of death. You are going to hit some stuff that should wipe you out and break you. But because the lord goes before you in the pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night, because the lord is you refuge and fortress you will not break. But because you have been forged in fire The greatness in you will rise and be poured into others. Your life will be a testimony of who God is! People wont believe the mess that you came from! Just look at all the places He has bought you from!

Much Love & God Bless

Sunday Thoughts 1/14/18

st

Life needs balance. Without it we will fall out of line. And with balance comes prioritizing. As God moves us through each season of our life we will have to prioritize the new things He as added along with things that He has made a priority that you are already managing. Ultimately He comes first then everything else. because everything comes through Him. In Some cases if our priorities and balance is off and we don’t adjust them he will adjust them for us. (you don’t want that)

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.

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

Morning Coffee 12/13/17 The Priest &The Virgin

FIRST READ LUKE 1:5-38

18 Zechariah said to the angel, “How can I be sure this will happen? I’m an old man now, and my wife is also well along in years.”

38 Mary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” And then the angel left her. – Luke 1:38 NLT

Hello family

We are open vessels for God to use according to His good will. We have a priest in one of the highest positions chosen to burn incense in the sanctuary. This man has been in the Holy of Holies, a man seen as connected with God. Then we have a virgin a common young woman, engaged to a carpenter. Both are visited by Gabriel the Archangel and given messages of great news. But the responses are totally different.

Both asked how the things that were told to them will happen, but the difference is the openness of their heart. Like the priest we can serve God in presence and do all the “christian duties” but totally miss an opportunity to fully receive from a move of God. It’s amazing that the vessel in the “lower” position in society was the most open but The vessel of high status had his lid half away on not fully willing to receive what was being poured into him.

Much Love & God Bless

Morning Coffee 12/5/17 Worship & Praise

Hello Family

Praise does not define worship, but your worship defines your praise.

One evening, Justin returns home from work and finds his wife, Angela, all made up and slipping into a beautiful outfit. He concludes she must have planned something special for them and offers to get dressed up as well. 

Angela, a bit confused, responds, “Oh honey, I’m going out with Tony tonight. We’re going to get dinner, catch a movie, and check into the Fairmont Hotel. I should be back by midmorning.” 

“Who’s Tony?!” Justin fires back.

“He’s my boyfriend from high school,” she replies.

“What! You can’t go out with him!” 

“Why not?” 

“Because we are married; we are committed to each other. We don’t date other people!” he says, stating what he assumes should be obvious.

“Hold on, honey!” Angela replies. “You are my favorite. I love you more than any of my old boyfriends, but you really can’t expect me to not see them any longer. I’ve been close with some of them for years, I still love them, and I want to enjoy time with them. What’s wrong with that?”

Hello family, take a minute and think about the opening statement. Our minds have separated and watered down the definition of these two words. God spoke the openings statement to me when i was in the shower, and when He said it, it made perfect sense.

We along with all the rest of creation are designed to worship but unlike the rest of the plants and animals we are not forced to worship God. we are not forced pre programed to worship  Him. God gave us the beautiful gift of choice. However one thing we cannot escape is what we are designed to do and that is worship.

However many years God has destined you to be here on this blue planet you are going to worship, you are going to dedicate a lifestyle of worship to someone or something, there is no gray area angela obviously placed more value on her x boyfriend than she did her own husband. Her life style of worship was for her ex.

  Now that we have cleared up the definition of worship lets talk about praise. You see the depth of our lifestyle of worship we devote to God or anything else is going to be reflected in our praise. For example think about your favorite sports team or favorite music artist.

How would you react if i told you that i’m giving you prime front row seats to got to there game or concert. you reaction is your praise for that artist or team, because you have spent time researching them following there twitter and Facebook  accounts, you IDENTIFY with them, so of course you will be excited to hear about the tickets.

It is the same with God the more time we devote to Him (lifestyle of worship) the more passionate our praise will be. Since we are on the subject of praise lets redefine that.

Praise is the outward demonstration of the depth  your worship lifestyle. Praise is more than just the hype music on a Sunday morning. Praise is the tears that roll down your face when you think about all god has done for you. Praise is when the presents of God inters the room and all you can do is sit quietly in it. We have got it backwards, its no praise & worship its worship and praise.

Praise does not define worship, but your worship defines your praise.

Romans 11:36-12:1-2

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
