We have all been encouraged through the faith (church, sermons, etc) to be givers. Sacrificially, completed, as He leads we should give what He asks. But is there anything more disappointing than giving the best gift you have to someone who is bad at receiving? Be a good receiver in Christ! No one should ever doubt any prayer/encouragement they offered you by your response (or lack of one). There have been times I have had to see what God is up against! I told Him once or twice “God I love you so much, but what the blast is wrong with the people here?!!!!”
If MY weakness were measured like a fuel tank on a car…MY tank is fullest when I am weakest, because God’s strength is fullest when I am emptiest (most unable to do it in MY own strength)!!
If God fails to seem mysterious, something is wrong!
Everybody here has a passion. We cannot all fully pursue each other’s passions except when the Holy Spirit leads you to. WE MUST know (or learn) who we are in a vacuum (just you and He in the prayer closet peeps!). Meetings are just overflow!!! Do you remember when David tried to wear Saul’s armor? How did that work out? Had to scrap that metal!!! The Word is clear that we are all different functions in the Body…Hand is not foot, foot is not hand. The Body is strong when we all are affirmed at our function in it. I have personally witnessed it too many times…people who don’t totally know who they are in Him try to be a hand or foot because the strong leader is that…8 feet causes stumbling.
God would rather we know someone’s heart than their theology.
Patchwork is revelation…potash is preparation!
This one is simple, yet when I heard it, it resounds over and again in my spirit and mind. This is also the continuation of the spiritual process with God (growth and preparation).
Can YOU follow ME where I go? Will YOUR need to know keep YOU out of ‘the know’? MY loved ones know when I AM moving and when I AM staying. YOUR destiny (where YOUR going) is created with people…NOT by people!!!
In MY kingdom there are only servants & lords- What have I said of the first and the last?
The Body of Christ is designed to bring food (for others), not sneak it!!!
This is a piece that I was inspired to write down amidst many circumstances of my life over the past few months thru others I know. It is for those facing life with hard circumstances and seeing God within those…
ARE YOU ENOUGH?
When the family came apart because of selfish choices
When the best place for my son was to stay in jail
Are You enough….to take away the tears
…to just hold me together
…to gently whisper answers I need
When my true love loses the battle to disease
As the sun sets on another day of me begging please
Are You enough…to take away this pain
…to bring Wisdom’s answers again
If your not enough then something is certainly wrong
There was no one else there before the first dawn
Too many folks keepin’ their perspectives and not ditchin’ their issues…
The truth of life is we can’t handle or control any of it to start with…but we can cry out to Him for help each step of the way.
This is from a friend of mine who I call TWM…he is a deep dude!
Lifting “all of life” up to God is my hearts natural inclination; utterable or unuttered and expressed or unexpressed; the innate motion of mutual communication, God worship, and instinctive intercession. Holy Spirit help me to remove my man-made walls, barriers, curtains, sin, and excuses that keep my heart centered mostly in earthly life.
