Cry if you need to.

Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning.

Cry if you need to. Sometimes life is so overwhelming all you can do is cry. Lyfe Jennings said “crying is like taking your soul to laundry mat.” Sometimes it needs to go. I tell you life is crazy sometimes, you get negative so many negative ideas poured into your mind and that’s all you hear. Anybody ever tell you that something on you was not to their liking? You know, your butt is too fat, your nose is too big, your stomach ain’t as flat as it used to be. Girl when you gone gain some weight. Girl you still working out? Is that your hair or some weave, cause it’s a mess. Why does it seem like after you hear all that negativity someone can say the nicest thing to you, tell you how great you look, how pretty you are etc etc etc , and all you hear is the negative? There is always hope in the kingdom.

We have this treasure from God, but we are only like clay jars that hold the treasure. This is to show that the amazing power we have is from God, not from us. We have troubles all around us, but we are not defeated. We often don’t know what to do, but we don’t give up. We are persecuted, but God does not leave us. We are hurt sometimes, but we are not destroyed. (2 Corinthians 4:7-9 ERV)

Let it all out, the pain the hurt the anger and the frustration , cry child, let it go because it is poisoning your spirit.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2 ESV)

I know the best thing we can do is always to enjoy life, because God’s gift to us is the happiness we get from our food and drink and from the work we do. Everything God has done will last for ever; nothing he does can ever be changed. God has done all this, so that we will worship him. (Ecclesiastes 3:12-14 CEVUK00)

No fear!

Who remembers the No Fear advertising commercials? These ads reminded you not to be afraid. My favorite one said “Second place is the first loser”. Something about that touched me because 20 years later it still resonates in my mind and heart. No Fear!

When I find myself afraid I have to talk myself down because life is scary. Out of nowhere came a fear of bridges and overpasses. I had no desire to
drive, I was 30 years old before really started driving. People hear that and ask, did you get over your fear? Nope, but it’s something I have to do, some days I’m crying and shaking but I keep going. NO FEAR!
The Spirit God gave us does not make us afraid. His Spirit is a source of power and love and self-control. (2 Timothy 1:7 ERV)

Lord, you have given me your shield to protect me. It is your help that has made me great. (2 Samuel 22:36 ERV)

I remind myself in the middle of my fear what GOD SAID. The enemy will try and tell you how bad something is, how your situation is dire and can’t be saved. Lie lie lie that’s what he does. For nothing is impossible with God. ” (Luke 1:37 NLT) boom, killed it, the lie is revealed. There is nothing too hard for God.

Whatever your fear is, give it to God!

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6, 7 NKJV)

It is always something!

Do you ever feel like “it’s always something?” Something to get over, something is broken, something is wrong, someone is acting a fool, something has caused you unspeakable pain? It’s true, it is always something! Real life happens and we have these tragedies that try to take us out. We have things happen that are unimaginable. Your husband is cheating on you or beating on you and you can’t see an end to the pain. Your children or spouse is on drugs and bringing turmoil to your family and nothing seems to help, not even prayer. You lose your job or your spouse does and now you have bills and bill collectors climbing up your back. Maybe a loved one is overtaken with some long term terminal illness and it seems as if your prayers are unanswered. Maybe there is a death of a loved one. Maybe your on drugs and can’t see an end. Maybe your a molester or an abuser?

Just like it’s always something happening in your life to destroy you, there is something to help you, to keep you strong, to build you up where your torn down, to heal your pain, to ease your struggle, to calm the raging storm. I call him Emmanuel, God with us!
“The virgin will be pregnant and will give birth to a son. They will name him Immanuel.” (Immanuel means “God with us.”) (Matthew 1:23 ERV)

Trust God has made a way for you to escape your situation. You may not know how to pray or how to find scripture in the bible. You don’t feel as if you can trust anyone with your secrets (good idea), but you got knees, get down on them and ask God to be with you. Ask Jesus to save you and he will. He will provide everything you need, every step of the way you will be covered.

Remember, I commanded you to be strong and brave. Don’t be afraid, because the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9 ERV)

Scriptures!!

I was riding to work today and I realized that I need a little pick me up. I would like for you to share some of your favorite scriptures with me that help you get through some rough patches or just because… I will share a couple of mine as well..

Everyone that knows me know that my ALL time favorite scripture is 1 Samuel 10:6 “Then the Spirit of the LORD will come upon you mightily, and you shall prophesy with them and be changed into another man..

My very close second is Matthew 6:25-26 “For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? “Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?…

Deuteronomy 30:16 “in that I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and multiply, and that the LORD your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it.”

I love you guys and I really hope that you share with me some of your favorite scriptures. I hope that you have a wonderful day because you deserve it.. Now Go be GREAT!!!!

Do you remember who God is?

Then God said to Moses, “Tell them, ‘I AM WHO I AM.’ When you go to the Israelites, tell them, ‘I AM’ sent me to you.” (Exodus 3:14 ERV)

God, you have been my king for a long time. The whole earth has seen you save us over and over again. You parted the Red Sea by your power. You broke the heads of that sea monster in Egypt. You crushed the heads of the sea monster Leviathan. You fed it to the creatures of the desert. You opened up streams and springs. You dried up rivers that flow all year long. You rule over the day and the night. You created the sun and the moon. You decided where the borders of the earth would be. You made both summer and winter. (Psalm 74:12-17 NIRV)

“But in your great mercy you did not abandon them to die in the wilderness. The pillar of cloud still led them forward by day, and the pillar of fire showed them the way through the night. You sent your good Spirit to instruct them, and you did not stop giving them manna from heaven or water for their thirst. For forty years you sustained them in the wilderness, and they lacked nothing. Their clothes did not wear out, and their feet did not swell! (Nehemiah 9:19-21 NLT)

I tell you not to worry about your life. Don’t worry about having something to eat, drink, or wear. Isn’t life more than food or clothing? Can worry make you live longer? Don’t worry and ask yourselves, “Will we have anything to eat? Will we have anything to drink? Will we have any clothes to wear?” Only people who don’t know God are always worrying about such things. Your Father in heaven knows you need all of these. Don’t worry about tomorrow. It will take care of itself. You have enough to worry about today. (Matthew 6:25, 27, 31, 32, 34 CEVDCUS06)

I asked God for the words to tell you today, none of mines seemed enough to answer the questions of his people, but I praise his Holy Name, his words are sufficient.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not my ways, says the Lord. For just as the heavens are exalted above the earth, so also are my ways exalted above your ways, and my thoughts above your thoughts. And in the same manner as rain and snow descend from heaven, and no longer return there, but soak the earth, and water it, and cause it to bloom and to provide seed to the sower and bread to the hungry, so also will my word be, which will go forth from my mouth. It will not return to me empty, but it will accomplish whatever I will, and it will prosper in the tasks for which I sent it. (Isaiah 55:8-11 CPDV)

Ipray

Dont you know that you yourselves are Gods temple and that Gods spirit dwells in your midst? If anyone destroys Gods temple, God will destroy that person; for Gods temple is sacred, and you together are that temple. (1 Corinthians 3:16-17 NIV)

 

Everyone want to hear the good things about God. You want to hear that he has promises for you, that he will make your situation better, that he will get you that raise you been needing. You want him to help get your kids, spouse and friends line. You want a bigger house, bigger car, better job. etc. But what have you done for God lately. All news is not good news coming from him. Talk about a newsflash for me. Having a relationship with God is a 2 way street. You can’t always expect to receive something. God take you through different seasons, different struggles and you have to be prepared for it. I know you thinking what does that mean? Well it means you have to spend time with God. Just like when you start dating. You always available, you doing everything possible to learn about this person. You will even sit up  on the phone all night acting like you not sleepy with this person. But when it come to God we want to put limits on it. Lets take the time to learn him like we would anyone else. Lets not just talk about him on Sunday, Lets not just use God as a conversation peace, Lets not just use God because it’s the in thing to do. You need God like you need your heart to beat. So lets remove all the foolishness from our lives so that he can dwell with us at all times. God and junk cant dwell in the same place. So what is more important in your life?

Father God you are awesome and so worthy to be praised. You make the impossible possible. You see things in us that we don’t see ourselves. You forgive us when we are not worthy. You love us when we don’t have strength to love ourselves. Father God we want to be BETHEl(the place where God lives) help us remove sin so that you dwell within us, for we know according to Isiah 59:2 “But your iniquities have separated you from God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.” Hear our cries O Lord forgive us for our sins Father. Equip us with the tools needed to be better individuals. Help us to examine ourselves so that we can do better. Lord God you said “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it full. (John 10:10NIV)” so we rebuke the devil and his plans on this day.. We will claim the abundant life you promised us in Jesus mighty name!!! AMEN!!
