It Is Here

I believe we are living in the greatest time that man has ever seen. I am expecting to see things that will astound us. God is pouring out an anointing on his people. It is time to gather together like never before to pray like never before for our family... our friends.. our pastors... our country... the world.

God is still on the throne people...You want to change nations and shake up the world? Then I encourage you to gather together and pray. Whether it's on your lunch hour in the quietness of your cars or office, in your living rooms, or at your church alters, "Pray!"

I've been praying this morning and one thing God has chosen to show me is that people have not changed. The core of who we are is the same today as it was from the beginning. Our surroundings have changed. Technology has changed. We have cars, cell phones and computers to name a few but we as people are still the same.

We all get afraid, we get happy and sad. We get tired and sick. We get discouraged and depressed. Sometimes our faith is strong, sometimes it's weak. Sometimes we are filled with such love, sometimes we are angry and filled with bitterness. These are the same feelings since the fall of man.

I don't know about you but I am personally at a place where it is a constant battle to do and be what I know is right. It is getting harder and harder to live in this world. This is why we have to strengthen our prayer muscles. We have to grab hold of the truth like a pit bull and not let go know matter what happens.

Don't isolate yourself know matter what you may be going through. Share it with God and find at least one other person to share it with and to pray with you. I know this can sometimes be hard. Allowing someone to see us for who we really are is never easy. The enemy delights in keeping us isolated. He feels the more alone we are the quicker our light will go out, our faith will diminish and we will not complete our journey.

When I talk about alone, you may be in a crowd of people from morning until night but still be alone. You continue to be what everyone expects but on the inside you are screaming that someone see's you for who you really are and what you are really going through.

I know there are tons of untapped resources and talents in the hearts of Gods people. Don't be afraid to step out even if you think it appears to be small. Your reaching out could be the catalyst that is needed to start something so great that it could change the world and end up helping millions of people. You never know you may be standing next to someone who has your answer.

It's a new day. We have never been here before. The latter rain is falling. Trust yourself enough not to be afraid anymore, not to miss your moment, your time. This coming Resurrection Sunday may some old dreams come to light and may your heart be renewed with hope. Remember God did all of this for you and He is the same yesterday, today and forever.

"For God so loved the world He gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life."

Until We Meet Again..... God Bless

This has been another hard week for me. I have been sick all week. Plus some other trials I won't mention but one thing I know for sure God has been with me through it all.

Hope fills my heart as I write this tonight. Hope is the energy that fuels the flame in me to keep going one more day. Hope says maybe tomorrow I'll get to where I need to be. Maybe tomorrow I'll see my dream birthed and in my hand. Maybe tomorrow when I round that bend I will run right into my answer.

I know I've been down lately. I have been very tired and now I have been sick but the good thing is when I get this low God always shows up stronger then ever. I think it's because I run out of my own strength. I have no more energy to try to control my life or the situation. If He doesn't show up there will be no more hope, not one more step. He loves to show up. He loves reaffirming that He is everything He said He is.

Just as we love reaching out to our children when they are in need, so much more does God love reaching out to us. He is a shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold, a listening ear, a friend, a father, as well as, a loving savior.

I have gotten upset many times because I would talk and talk to God but I still felt all alone. I thought if I could see Him I wouldn't be so lonely. This week I realized if I could see Him like I see you and me He couldn't be with me like He is now. I couldn't hide under the shadow of His wings. I couldn't feel Him in my heart or hear Him whispering in my ear.

I don't know about you but sometimes it takes almost a lifetime for something to get embedded in my heart. I may repeat it a million times before I really see it. When I finally get that "AHA, moment" and realize, "Oh that's what He meant." All this time I have been wanting him to be something He is not. And this week I finally realized I'm so grateful He is not what I wished He would be but He is who He is.

How I love him. He absorbs every pore of my being. He is in every thought and every breath. He leaves Himself behind every time I reach out and touch someone. He leaves his footprints behind every time I walk out in faith. His voice is heard and touches the soul of everyone I try to console or love. And what is so amazing is that it's not just through me but through each one of us.

We leave Him everywhere. We leave the scent of His being, of who He really is, by giving our life to Him and then living it everyday. It doesn't matter what our talent is or our job. It doesn't matter if we are male or female or what our age happens to be because we each have our own personal walk with Him. He will use each one of us if we let Him.

I can live without a lot of things in this life but I can not live without the hope that God breathes into me everyday. I can't live with out Him.

Open yourself up to Him and hold on with everything you've got because He is holding on to you.

Until we meet again. God Bless

The Possibility Maker

What a week I've had. Why is it when you think you are doing everything right everything goes wrong. Doors slam in your face. People treat you badly. Your car breaks down. You get sick. You make one mistake after another at work. Do you know even the batteries died in my blood pressure monitor. What's that tellin' me. Whoa!! I'm not even going there. I'm not ready to leave just yet. I'm ticked but the ticker is still working.

Well I've come to the conclusion, I must be doing something exactly right if I wasn't the enemy wouldn't be working overtime to make my life miserable.

I don't have all the answers to days like these but I know we have to hang on with everything we've got. I believe when we have these days it means our breakthrough is very close and the enemy knows it. He knows once we get that break through there will be no stopping us.

I heard a preacher say once that the farther God stretches you the further you will fly when he lets you go. I think I should be a billionaire and land somewhere in the Middle East or in Gods lap depending on which direction I fly when he lets me go. (:0)

Everything I do is wrapped around God. Everything I say everywhere I go all my talent and knowledge, everything is his. I can't remember a time when it hasn't been this way but I'm going to be honest I am growing weary. I really need a breakthrough. I need to see some of the dreams God has placed in my heart come to pass not only for me but for my family and for you.

I need a refill. I've kept my cup. I have no intentions of throwing it away but it's getting empty. We give so much of ourselves and sometimes we just need a refill.

That's where I'm at right now. I need to be around a lot of people pouring into my life for a season. Believing in my dreams and the vision God has put in my life. I'm dry and dusty. My feet need washed and I need a few loaves and fishes so I can feed thousands.

When I began this blog I was on a quest to find me. Well as I've told you before to find me I need to help more of you. I need your help. I need your prayers, I need you to listen to what God is placing on your hearts and I need you to follow your dreams.

We've all got to work harder at letting our lights shine. Now don't get me wrong I know we've all been trying but we have to push through the pain. Like a runner pushing through that invisible wall he hits. And like a runner sometimes we need a crowd to cheer us on so we will keep our eyes on the prize.

We have to be driven. We know that with God all things are possible. In the natural it may not look that way but we serve a God who loves to take the seemingly impossible and make it a reality. So invest in a future with dividends. That's what I'm banking on, "God The Possibility Maker."

Until we meet again. God Bless.

What Now?

It has been a quiet week in my soul. I don't do very well with quiet times. I like it when God is talking so fast I can hardly keep up with Him. I have a hard time with the silence. It's like you are just sitting tapping your foot waiting for only, "God Knows What."

In these quiet times I can only do what God told me to do from the beginning, "Keep speaking into peoples lives. Continue to tell them how much He loves them." As long as I am doing that I guess I will always be on the right track."

I'm just one of those people who always needs this long list of things to do. I need direction and of course a time frame. I don't think that's too much to ask.(:0) Then I am reminded that God's timing is not necessarily my timing and what may look small in my eyes is actually big in God's.

I can't help it I have so much inside me. I can't seem to get it to flow out. It seems to be only trickling out. I guess it's kind of like a hole in the wall of a dam; sooner or later the water will break down the resistance of the wall and all that water will be flowing freely; but I'm getting old here, Lord I'm running short on days. (:0)

I guess I will keep on keep en' on and continue to wait for further orders. Of course a little begging is good for the soul, "Come on God I've been faithful. I've read the game book over and over. Gee I've even got the best plays memorized. I work out, my prayer muscles are in great shape. I'm a good distance runner. Come on Lord put me in the game. I can do it."

Not bad, what do you think God? Only silence......... I know I'll just have to wait and believe. I know he won't stay silent forever. I'll wear him down. I can make enough noise all of heaven will be begging him to give me a new assignment, just you wait and see.......

Hi God, Why do ducks say quack? How high is heaven? How long does it take to make a raindrop? Was grass always green? How did you come up with the giraffe? Did you really have to make spinach? God why didn't you make twinkie trees?...............................................................

God, I hear you laughing........

Until we meet again. God Bless
