I know that there are may people who believe that they are above reproach. Maybe they've reached a certain status or received a title that makes them believe that no one below them can correct them or tell them what to do. Or maybe they've achieved goals and degrees that make them believe that they know better than most because of the knowledge they've received. Or maybe it's none of the above, some people just believe that they are correct and have everything figured out. I
Yesterday I noticed a thing that I do. I noticed that I do it all the time but I do it almost unconsciously. I cry out to the Lord throughout the day. Not loudly, no tears and I don't think anyone else would notice, even if they were paying attention. It's more of a sigh but almost whispered...a quiet murmur, yeah that's what it is, a quiet murmur. "Help me Father." It is my constant plea to the Lord. That I repeat without even thinking about it. I usually say it when m
What excites you? For me there are many things, as a child I was always excited when Christmas was near. Knowing that there were unknown surprises coming would keep me on edge for days. Now I get excited when my vacation is coming up or when I know I am going to get something new like, a new car. We all have things that excite us but what should excite us most is the prospect of experiences and encounters with God. God is the God of miracles, signs and wonders. Just take
The Bible is no ordinary book. It is a collection of books, letters and texts written under divine inspiration. These stories are Gods words to us. Through these texts God reveals who He is, who we are to Him and why we are all here. It explains things about prayer, our true nature as spiritual beings and tells the stories of many people from all different walks of life. While reading the Bible, it can speak to you. It can speak to your life, your current situation and t
The fruits of the spirit come with the baptism of the Holy Spirit or receiving the Holy Spirit. People describe this experience in many different ways but it is that moment when you become that new creature in Christ that the bible speaks about. This is an event that you will not be able to second guess or question. No one will have to tell you and it will not have to be verified. You will know because it will be life changing. For me this was an experience that I had no
The definition of a friend is a person that you have a bond of mutual affection with. This connection is typically exclusive of sexual or family relations. But if you are lucky you have family members that have become friends, that you can share your closest secrets with. Or you may have friends that are closer to you than your blood relatives. Either way you should consider yourself extremely blessed. You have no choice of the family you are born into but you can choose
I am going to share an experience with you. An experience that if I had not had it, I do not think I would have fully understood what an atmosphere changer really was. If you are not familiar with the term I am going to share a story with you that will make the idea clear. Last year, I was invited to a friends house. She was having a gathering of her friends. This was something that they did monthly. Rotating whose house they gathered at. I wasn't sure what we were goin
There are times when I don't feel as close to the Lord. Despite praying and reading His word. Sometimes I just feel like I am not doing enough, like their is something else I could or should be doing. I always want to do more for the Lord and I always want more of Him. But in those times He seems so far away. We can all be happy and contented when we feel close to the Lord. When he is speaking directly to us and working things out in our lives. In the midst of being ble
I usually try to give a message that is upbeat and positive. Something that will encourage believers and motivate their relationship with Christ. My message today will hopefully be just as encouraging. But I am feeling more of an urgency to share this with you today. There are many of us who believe in God, the bible and Jesus Christ. That try to live lives that reflect our beliefs. Lives that exhibit who He is and how much He loves us. There are also those of us who do
Excerpt from My Extraordinary Walk, Chapter 12 Dreams, Be Prepared for His Return page 109 This is a dream that was given to me by the Lord. I've shared this dream in a video on FB a while ago. But the message is still pertinent so I am going to share it here again today. This is the only dream that I had that I have shared publicly. I shared this on Facebook a while after I had this dream. On September 15, 2016 I dreamed that I was in a big house, a mansion, I have dream
Prayer is defined as an earnest hope or wish. It is also a request for help or an expression of thanks addressed to God. But to put it simply prayer is our communication with God. Of course He already knows everything but it is important for us to make an effort to talk to Him. It gives us the chance to acknowledge Him for who He is. To come to Him in reverence and with respect as our...everything. If God is really important to you, you will make the time to talk to Him.
The mind is a very powerful thing. Not only does the mind control what we think. It also controls what we do. Everything we do first starts off as a single thought. Our thoughts and mindset are very important to everything we accomplish and everything that we are in life. We all have thoughts that run through our minds. I going to ask you to pay good attention to the thoughts that occupy your mind during day. Our thoughts set the base for the type of person that we are.
All my life I have always looked to the sky, up above when talking about God. I think we all do it. We look to a God that is outside, away from us. In doing that we mentally detached ourselves from God. We may not do it on purpose but it sure does make it easier to live our lives as we see fit. When we think of a God that is watching us from a far. Maybe even over our shoulder, that disappears when do things that He does not like. What I have learned on this journey is
What is the Truth? It is defined as a fact or belief that is accepted as true. Also as honesty, genuineness, the gospel. You cannot go wrong if you are following the truth. The truth will lead you to those things that are right, positive and true. Now, what is a lie? It is defined as a statement that is known and intended to be misleading, inaccurate or false. The purpose of a lie is to lead you away from the truth. To misinform, to lead astray, an intentionally false
Growing up, I was always fascinated by the supernatural. I couldn't get enough of ghost stories and psychic encounters. I would buy all kinds of books and watch every TV show. I have even wondered how I could get a reading with one of the famous psychics that I had read so much about. And there was even a time or two when I had my palm read or the tea leaf thing but each of those experiences were very underwhelming. This may be hard to understand but I would watch these s
