God Gets the Glory


Hello Everybody!

I just had to post this song by Ethan Kent called  Get the Glory feat. Bre Botello.


The next song is called Bring Us to Our Knees also by Ethan Kent.  I think it is a humbling song that makes us think about the way in which we are living. We need to wake up and smell the reality and really think about humbling ourselves and being real with ourselves. How much of us are drawing closer to God despite the things we face in this life? How many of us are drawing further away from Him? I pray that this song ministers to your spirit and helps you think about where you stand in Christ today. God Bless You everybody! 😀

Until My Voice is Gone


Hello Everybody!

There are three songs I want to post today by Travis Ryan  where the first song is called Until My Voice is Gone.  I believe we must give praise to Our God until our voices are Gone. He is worthy of all our praise and when you think about all the Lord has done for you, doesn’t it just make you want to sing and shout and give Him the highest praise? I know for me, my God is worthy of all my praise. I pray that this song ministers to your spirit today.


The next song also by Travis Ryan is called We Believe.  I know the Newsboys has song this song before, but I quite like this version as well.


The last song also by Travis Ryan is called The Goodness of the Lord. This song is just so powerful and I know it’ll minister to your spirit today. Just bask in God’s love through these worship songs today and allow your spirit to saturate itself in pure worship unto God. God Bless You everybody! 😀

Character is Everything


Hello People!

beauty-catches-the-attentionHappy Sunday everybody! Today, I want to talk about people’s Characters. I’ve already written various types of posts that are aimed at reflecting on building one’s character and felt the need to continue writing on this point. In life, you will encounter various types of people/personalities and/or situations that will test your true character. If you think you know yourself and know how you are as a person right now, you could be kidding yourself right about now because your true character or personality usually manifests itself during a trial or crisis. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that you always need to face a trial to test your character, but what I am saying is that sometimes we think we know who we are until we face a crisis and then we find out how we really are. It’s nothing to be ashamed of because everybody slips up in some way but this is where we have to identify our weaknesses and learn to admit our faults and failures and work on our weaknesses and turn those weaknesses into strengths.


James 5:16 [Full Chapter]

Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

Some people operate with an “I’m going to fake it to make it” philosophy, but they are only fooling themselves. The key is to identify your weaknesses.  If you claim to have no weaknesses then “kudos to you buddy”, you have mastered the art of self-deception. Every person has a weakness, and some people may appear to have no weakness at all because they have mastered the art of SELF-CONTROL. However, you can only master the art of self-control by confronting your weaknesses by being real with yourself. Recognize the areas in your life that you are lacking and work on progressively developing self-control and discipline in order to strengthen your mind for every battle that you face in this life. The reason why some people face the same test(s) over and over again is because they did not learn from their mistakes from the first failure.


runner


Life is like running an Olympic race with many hurdles. To get the highest marks in such a race, you have to attempt to jump over each hurdle seamlessly without tipping any of them over. If you tip any over while you’re running, you’ll lose points even if you get to the finish line first, so it is not enough to simply finish the race, you have to be seamless in the long run. In order to finish such a race, you have to practice jumping over these hurdles over and over again until you become a seamless runner which means you require training. This example is like with everything else you do in life; building self-control requires repetition until having self-control is like second nature to you. It’s easy to lose your cool in the heat of the moment, but building self-control requires perseverance and the aptitude to work on your attitude to maintain your integrity no matter what obstacle, battle or offense that you may face. You will face the same test of offenses until you pass with an attitude of self-control. Solutions to a crisis can only come to your head when you maintain your cool to think rationally, with a calm disposition. No one, including God, can talk to a “hot-head” who is full of “I know already!” when trying to help you overcome a crisis, difficulty and/or test. This is where humility is key.


[ I Never Knew You ] “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.

Sometimes, the teachers God gives us may offend us because He wants to groom our characters to be teachable and obedient to instructions. In some churches, you will find people seeking a “prophetic word” for themselves because they just want a prophetic word to get by and by, but the question I have for such seekers of the prophetic word are, “Will you be obedient to do what is instructed, once the instructions have been given?”. Some people call on the Lord Lord, but how many are willing to do what He says?


[ Build on the Rock ] “But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say?

God gives us ideas through many forms of inspiration, whether it be by a dream, or a thought that seemingly “pops” into your head, or through your gifts that birth amazing ideas to create things because we are all born gifted in one form or another because we are fearfully and wonderfully made and your soul should know this very well (Psalm 139:14). With God, all things become possible to those that believe because He is limitless


But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

more-jesusIn order to succeed in whatever it is you want to do in life, you have to confront your true self. You have to confront your personal issues that you have not dealt with and you have to decide that you want an attitude adjustment to handle any vicissitude you may face in this life. Donald Trump has faced many bankruptcies as a business man and yet nothing stopped him from being a multi-millionaire and on top of that being elected as the next American President of the United States. Although I’m not American and I don’t really have any comment on their political issues, I just want you all the bear in mind that Trump is just an example of what a winning attitude looks like. He may not be the best person in the world, but He clearly has the emotional intelligence to deal with people’s criticisms and yet remain successful in all that he does no matter how many haters he may have. When you operate at such a high level of fortitude, you will attract many haters and people that will want to see you fail in your life. This is why it is important to also develop emotional intelligence. When you develop emotional intelligence, you can withstand any obstacle or setback that comes your way and you will always have a different picture and perspective about how you see yourself in light of any circumstances.


I feel like with all that I’ve been through with therapy and dealing with the sickness I’ve had to endure (encephalitis – short-term memory loss), I feel like God has humbled me to a degree to appreciate what I have right now because you don’t really know what you’ve got until it’s gone. So with all things, continue to give thanks, praise God and remain humble. God uses everything to teach us to be more and more like Him in all that we do. He provides us with many examples and many teachers that we least expect to learn from in order for us to understand what it is like to have the “Mind of Christ”. If you think of Jesus, He hung out with everybody and anybody including those government officials and tax collectors that offended the masses that oppressed them through unjust laws and taxes that seemed to sponge off of the people. If Jesus were to walk around our lives today, contrary to popular opinions, I think He’d hang out with Donald Trump even if it offends the masses in some way as much as He would’ve hung out with a beggar in the street because Jesus’ love does not discriminate.


a-man-of-personalityWe as Christians need to understand that we need to deal with and confront our personal levels of PRIDE  in order to remain humble and receive others that are different from ourselves. We cannot reach anyone that is different from us if we come off as prejudicial, judgemental and hypocritical in our conduct. “We are known to be Christians by our Love” demonstrated through our ACTIONS. If we want to have impact in other people’s lives, we first need to face the fact and decide to have an attitude adjustment about the way in which we treat people. Do our words match our actions? Are we all talk and no action? We need to make sure that how we conduct ourselves is representative of what we believe in because what we ultimately believe in, is what we become. I personally endeavor to become what My God wants me to become and that is to be more like His Son Jesus each and every day even if it means I’m guilty by association, Amen!


I have a song by the Newsboys called Guilty to bless your spirit today. I pray that you contemplate today on where it is that you stand and confirm that wherever your stand is, hopefully, your stand is with Christ Jesus.

 


The second song is by Travis Ryan called You Hold It All. This song is soo off the hook in surround sound so enjoy the Songs and God Bless You everybody! 😀

 

For Me


Hello People!

Happy Valentines Day! I just wanted to post two songs by J.R. where the first is called For Me as a great representation of God’s love for us all. I feel like this song is appropriate for today. Jesus Loved You so much that He came down from Heaven just for You and for me. I pray that this song blesses your spirit today.


The next song is called We Need You also by J.R. This song is so offbeat and cool that I know you will like it. This video seems to be performed with a choreographed dance by Over Bless. Enjoy the song and God Bless Everybody! 😀

God’s Love Note – Love One Another


Hello Everybody!

God Bless You everybody! 😀




God Will Do It Again!


Hello Everybody!

I just want to post this awesome song by Elevation Church called Do It Again. God is able to do anything and everything because He is the One that makes a way out of no way for you no matter what circumstances you face. All you have to do is believe. Keep believing for whatever miracles you seek from God today. God’s promises still stand because great is His faithfulness. What is your confidence? Is your confidence in the Lord? Or is it dissipating by the things you see. Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not yet seen. Don’t allow what you see to trump faith. It is not always easy to hold on to Faith, but a heart devoid of hope is quite sad indeed.

Faith always has something to look forward to, but when you lack hope, your expectation is to see nothing, hear nothing and receive nothing. Do not allow your spirit to be devoid of faith, because faith produces the confidence to receive what you hoped for with expectation. What is your heart expecting? Write your dreams down on paper and post them somewhere  that you will see it so that you keep your vision always in front of your face so that no matter how many people ridicule you, you will always have your eyes on the prize. Your vision is your focus and you will obtain what you are expecting because you have the faith to receive it if you believe for it. No one can rock your vision if you maintain your focus of God who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all you could ever ask, think or imagine. God is the One who is able to fulfill the vision that He has for your life so keep your faith wrapped up in Jesus, Amen! I pray that this song ministers to your spirit today. God bless you everybody! 😀

He Lifted Me Higher!


Hello People!

Today, I want to post a song by Jaye Thomas & The Cry called Higher. Sometimes, we face things that appear to be great obstacles to our progress. They come in the form of setbacks, disappointments, sickness, financial woes, and the list goes on. However, despite the setbacks, God is the one who provides the great comeback! Some people can laugh and mock you for where you are right now, but they simply don’t know where it is that you are going. With God on your side, the road that He takes you on is one less traveled but it is a journey that is able to satisfy your heart’s desires. So do not be discouraged with where you are right now, because your eyes should focus on where it is that God wants to take you. You will face challenges, temptations to stray from the path and may even feel like giving up and turning back, but God is saying to you today, “Keep GOING!”.

There will be people who will walk with you some of the way, part of the way and then there will be a people that will walk with you all the way to the end. Each person you encounter in your journey is relevant no matter how long they journey with you so respect each encounter as they come. You will probably meet people from your past in your future and you may even think “it’s a coincidence”, but with God, there is no such thing as a coincidence. Everything is part of His divine plan for your life. Some people, you will only meet once and never again and that’s ok, because some people are designed to only be there for you for that specific moment in your life and once they have completed their task, that part of their journey with you is over. You must continue to look forward, and keep on pressing forward towards the goal in your life and not look back at things that weren’t meant to be. Clinging onto the past can serve as a stumbling block towards your progress towards your future. Learn to let go of things that won’t hold onto you and to grab a hold of things that are extending their hands to you in order to push you forward to your prosperous future. Clinging onto dead weight only serves to keep you stranded in the same position leaving you neither here nor there because you aren’t going anywhere. Learn to move with the times and recognize your destiny helpers that are there to push you forward to where you need to go and to where you need to be right now.


Folly is joy to him who is destitute of discernment, But a man of understanding walks uprightly.

Sometimes people hold on to expired relationships for a long time thinking that it’s a good thing but God knows when a person’s journey with you has ended in the road of your life. If you keep holding onto people that are supposed to leave at the right time, you will find them to be a stumbling block to your future progress and then you will find yourself wondering why things aren’t moving in your life. It’s because you didn’t let go of what was meant to depart earlier in your life.


Philippians 1:8-10

For God is my witness, how greatly I long for you all with the affection of Jesus Christ.

And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, 10 that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ,


There will also be people you will reunite with in your life that are meant to re-enter your life for a specific purpose. You have to discern or should I say you have to learn to discern who is meant to re-appear in your life and who is meant to disappear from your life according to the timing that is in your life. I classify people  as either destiny builders or destiny helpers, and/or stumbling blocks or destiny destroyers. You have to discern who is there to build you or destroy you. Some may start out as builders, but they can easily become stumbling blocks if you do not discern when the timing of that relationship has ended/expired. Not all relationships have an expiry date, but some people are sometimes only there to be with you for a specific amount of time and if you continue to cling onto people when they are meant to move on, it’s either you or they become a stumbling block to your progress in either their life or your life. That is why it is important to build discernment of not only people’s characters, but also discern seasons and when times have changed. Do not be moved by emotionalism; move by the Spirit of God and accept what God shows you concerning people in your life. This is not limited to just people in your workplace, but also friendships, courtships and familial relationships. At the end of the day, your destiny is wrapped up in what God has planned for you to do and fulfill in this lifetime.

Having been sick with encephalitis (short-term memory loss), I’ve realized that it is very important to be anchored to the knowledge of Christ in all that you do. Despite my battle with this sickness, I’m glad that I never forgot who I am and the fact that I am saved by the blood of Jesus Christ. People’s attitude may change towards you regarding who you are and what you stand for, but that is when you discover the true hearts of men and women that are around you.

Who is genuine? Who is fake? Are you even able to tell the difference?

When I look back in my life, I recognize that I have always been adept at recognizing genuine and fake people that come before my face. This is called discernment. It is needed in order to make wise decisions. It doesn’t mean that you can never be tricked, but it is an important thing to build in order to make wise decisions about what and who you allow and/or do not allow in your life. Certain people can either build you or derail you from where you ought to go so it is important to know the difference by standing anchored on The WORD (The Bible) as your moral standard of conduct. Do not be wishy washy in your decision making. Have standards of conduct and don’t be so easily swayed by others that want you to stray from the path of making the right choices to live by.

The journey of simply doing the “right thing” can sometimes cause you to be a pariah of sorts in that you will feel isolated and often times lonely because people don’t understand what you are about. Why is it that you don’t follow the crowd? Why do you dare to be different? Doing the right thing isn’t always popular, but that is what it means to stand against the grain and outshine the idle-minded that don’t seem to question what is up with the current status quo that they are in fact following. Following a “Fad” doesn’t mean you are doing the right thing. You determine the road that you will follow, so it is my prayer that you make the right choices and follow that sweet narrow road that is a road less traveled with major benefits that far outweigh the temporary pleasures of the popular road that leads you to nowhere. It isn’t easy to choose that narrow road, but it is the best choice you could ever make in your life. That I guarantee. Enjoy this song by Jaye Thomas & The Cry and God Bless You everybody! 😀
