Tomorrow is the day that comes after this present 24 hour period we call today. Tomorrow is the day that catches our "roll over" list. The day that we say we are going to do all the things that we can't do today. Tomorrow is huge because it sure holds a lot of dreams, plans and hopes!! How big is your tomorrow? The size and value of your tomorrow is decided by your vision and faith of today!!

"Where there is no VISION; the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he." (‭Proverbs‬ ‭29‬:‭18‬ KJV)

What is today, yesterday's tomorrow, so here we are in yesterday's hopes, in real time but is it really much different than yesterday? You know as well as I do that unforeseen circumstances can cause it to be different but did your vision and faith cause it to be differently. from any other day?
Did we have a profound effect on the day that we had in our hands, did we own it or did it own us? Are we, through Christ, changing the world or is the world changing us?? Are we being proactive or just reacting to whatever happens to come our way? "Today is the day of Salvation" so please do not put your eternal destiny off until tomorrow. You need to consider that at this very moment because life is not promised, you could not wake from your sleep, you could have a car wreck, you could have an accident or just fall over with a heart attack. We are not promised tomorrow, so make every moment count as if it were your last moment on earth because it could be!!!!

"Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that." (‭James‬ ‭4‬:‭13-15‬ KJV)

"Those that Mourn"

"Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted."(‭Matthew‬ ‭5‬:‭4‬ KJV)

Yesterday was the one year anniversary of a terrible storm that hit our area. (Louisville, MS and surrounding communities) It was a tragic and very traumatizing afternoon, lives were taken, homes, businesses and anything in the path of this storm system was destroyed. There is hardly a day has gone by that the tragic events of last April 28th are not mentioned in someway by someone. The recovery is not complete, the pain of loss remains and the memories will bring tears to our eyes for as long as we live. Natural disasters are not easy to explain, practically impossible, because they are random yet they seem to travel a well planned path. They are one of life's mysteries that bring loss, sorrow and devastation. Our community has a high regard for our families and neighbors so we automatically pull together to rise out of the rubble and pain. It is the love and dedication to one another that keeps this community and others like it going from day to day. I don't hear people complaining, blaming God or someone else for the trials they have faced during this time. I see people trying to rebuild their lives in spite of the frustrations that goes along with an incident of this nature. Some have rebuilt, some are still struggling to rebuild, some are still having nightmares but all are trying to move on but also taking time to remember!!! We hug the hurting with one arm while trying to rebuild with the other arm all at the sane time. We are forever grateful for the volunteers and charitable organizations from out of town that came to help during this time of chaos. This night one year ago was a sleepless dark night but in time with God's Grace we shall trade our ashes for beauty. "To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified. And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations." (‭Isaiah‬ ‭61‬:‭3-4‬ KJV) Looking to our nation as a whole, I humbly ask those of you in our wonderful country that seem to prefer destroying your community over building it up, to just stop the madness!! I ask you if you are not happy with who you are please stop the medical procedures to try and change who God created you to be in the first place. Please take a second look at who you are and what you have, they are gifts from God. I promise you if you will put one foot forward in the right direction God will bless you with a peace that will change your life forever!! I challenge all of us to give God an opportunity to lead us in paths of righteousness!!! It is practical truths like, "Love thy neighbor as thyself" and "Righteousness exalts a nation" that holds our country together in these trying times. Please be part of the solution, not the problem!!!

It's not that complicated!!!

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

For my pardon, this I see,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my cleansing this my plea,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Nothing can for sin atone,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
Naught of good that I have done,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

This is all my hope and peace,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
This is all my righteousness,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Now by this I'll overcome—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus,
Now by this I'll reach my home—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Glory! Glory! This I sing—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus,
All my praise for this I bring—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

(Robert Lowry 1876 Nothing but the Blood of Jesus)

Who can stop God?

Isaiah the Prophet says if God has purposed something to be, who is it that can stand God down? God has a purpose for you or you wouldn't be reading this on planet earth!! David says in Psalm 46:10 that sometime we need to "Be still and know I am God!" We may need to shut out all the other voices so we can hear one clear voice, the Voice of God!! The Bible is clear that there is "wisdom in a multitude of counselors" but we must always have personal peace because at the end of the day we stand alone before God. I ask you to simply ask, Father, What do you want me to do that will make a difference?" It's a simple question but we are often too busy to take time to just ask.....

"For the Lord of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?" (‭Isaiah‬ ‭14‬:‭27‬ KJV)

Pick your Battles....

Get a revelation, life is not fair, so expecting it to be fair will just cause you to expect something that is not going to happen in this life. If you are sitting on the couch waiting for life to bring you a dozen roses everyday, you are going to wear yourself out emotionally. We must learn to pick our battles and these mind games of hopelessness is just a diversion to wear you down. In America, we are bombarded by super people on television or by songs about someone we've lost or something we didn't get to accomplish so we feel like total failures, which is a myth because God is our Creator and Savior!! We need to balance our lives by having a clear understanding of what is entertainment and what is real. Please don't waste your energy trying to be or do something that doesn't even exist but rather focus on the purpose of God. Apostle Paul tells us that our flesh and spirit are in a constant battle. We must not waste time on things that doesn't matter but put our energy into the things that really matter, that will produce results in our life for the good of our future.
"Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life."(‭Proverbs‬ ‭13‬:‭12‬ KJV)
Don't allow the system to replace the hope in you with a false idea or dream because God has a real dream in your heart that can grow into a tree of life. If you waste your time on the drama of the neighborhood then you will have no strength to give attention to the God given dream in your heart. If you are going to fight for something, make sure it will bring the "abundant life" into your life.
"The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." (‭John‬ ‭10‬:‭10‬ KJV)
Don't fight a war that was over 10 years ago, stay relevant to what matters today!!! Some things and people you have to just let go and walk away, God will bring them along when they are ready!!!

"The Kiss of Betrayal"

Have you ever been hurt by someone you loved and trusted? The closer you are to a person the more they can hurt you. When we love people we are vulnerable, at risk of being hurt!! Jesus was betrayed by a close friend who had traveled in ministry with Him for over 3 years. There seems to be no hurt like a knife in the back by a person with whom you have worshipped and prayed!! There is no hurt like a church hurt because of the confusion that goes along with the pain. You weep, but in the end, you eventually just have to let it go or it will consume you. When Judas betrayed Jesus, He was in the Garden of Gethsemane praying, the night was dark and restless because Jesus would soon be nailed to the cross! Judas told the soldiers that he would kiss Jesus to identify Him so there would be no mistake in the target. It's a deplorable act to crucify your friend with a kiss of death. The kiss is reserved for the closest of friends and to use it to destroy is unthinkable.......

"Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast. And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him."(‭Matthew‬ ‭26‬:‭48-49‬ KJV)

Once you've been hurt by a friend you are overwhelmed with every type of human emotion but you will probably never be told the truth as to why someone so close would do this to you. The reason you are not told is because there is no justifiable reason to cause pain in someone's life that has done nothing but love you. The betrayer is sometime jealous of you because you get more attention than they do in certain areas. You can be hurt because you have a pure heart which produces the Presence of God in your life which makes an imposter very uncomfortable. They will convince themselves of anything to justify their behavior. If you are in ministry, unfortunately you've probably been hurt so much that there is no more room in your back for another dagger!! In some cases it is someone you've helped out in any way you have means to do so. You need to think long and hard before you hurt someone that has helped you because if you do, EVIL will never leave your house!!!

"Whoso rewardeth evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house."(‭Proverbs‬ ‭17‬:‭13‬ KJV)

If you have hurt someone that called you their friend, your life will go from bad to worse because it will come back home to stay. If you have been hurt, you won't ever forget it but by God's Grace forgive, wipe your tears and move on with your life because God has many blessings in store for you.

"Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God." (‭Matthew‬ ‭5‬:‭8‬ KJV)

We cannot not allow our present trying circumstances to define who we are nor can we allow the weariness of the moment to dictate our future!! Our future is in the hands Jesus Christ, so we must put our faith in Him!! If you are alive on planet earth then your circumstances change like Mississippi weather, 80 degrees one morning and 30 that night. Some of the things we get hit with we might could have looked a little closer at life and stopped them from causing chaos in our lives. However there are circumstances beyond our control that we just have to deal with as they come into play. We may not see them coming but Jesus sees and knows all things!! Our God will not only know about them before we do, If we love Him, He will work them out for our good. We can only keep our perspective clear and balanced by looking at things from God's point of view, not ours!! The scriptures give us God's perspective on all things either by direct statement or in principle. Read the Bible often, talk to God with your heart and everything will be ok....

"BE NOT AFRAID of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken." (‭Proverbs‬ ‭3‬:‭25-26‬ KJV)

It's not God's first storm....

Sometime in late summer of 1979 I boarded a "shuttle" flight, a small plane which held around 30 passengers, departing from Jackson, MS bound for New Orleans, LA. I'm just guessing at the number of passengers but I do know at 6'4" I couldn't stand upright and always tried to get a bulkhead seat because my long legs have to be folded up to fly coach. It was a transition year in my life, I had turned 18 in February and graduated High School in May. I was working on a towboat and was on my way to catch M/V Miss Kae-D. This flight was no different from all the other afternoon flights to South LA, SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS!!! When you are in a bad thunderstorm in a small plane, you don't have to be told to put your seat belt on because if you don't you can wind up in the floor. I wasn't saved at the time but was praying nevertheless.... About time I felt like God might have heard my prayers a loud roaring noise suddenly starting coming from the rear of the air craft and then a small petite size young lady came running up the isle as best she could in turbulence. She ran right past me into the cockpit to tell our flight crew about the noise but they had already heard the noise and were taking corrective measures. In those days on small planes there wasn't a cockpit door or if it was they never closed it, it was a different world then... The flight crew was basically two men in the cockpit attempting to fly the plane in one of my worst flying experiences. I was 18, had only a few flights under my belt but was very certain I was going to die that day. By default, I made the assumption that the two very well trained men were in their first thunderstorm simply because I was immature and in my worst storm in the "Friendly Skies"!! PLEASE DON'T MAKE THE ASSUMPTION THAT THIS IS GOD'S FIRST STORM!!! Our immaturity blinds us to the truth that our God never sleeps in the cockpit nor anywhere else for that matter!!! Tighten your seatbelt of faith and yes the ride may get a little rough but God will get us safely to our destination. We have a Destiny that has been carefully planned by our Heavenly Father, He will see that we are given the opportunity to fulfill His plans for us!!!

"The Lord is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and IN THE STORM, and the clouds are the dust of his feet." (‭Nahum‬ ‭1‬:‭3‬ KJV)

"Get out of my House"!!

Picture this; Jesus is walking along the street and a man runs up to Him, falls at His feet and says, my only daughter is dying!!! His name is Jairus, he pleads with Jesus to come quickly to his house so they begin the journey. Have you ever needed Jesus immediately in a time of crisis? On their way a sick women interrupts their walk by touching Jesus and He stops because He feels the faith of this sick woman cause healing in her body. Please be aware that this lady has been sick for 12 years, the young girl is dying so they could have healed her later but Jesus stops to minister to her anyway. While this is happening a messenger comes and tells the girl's daddy that his ONLY daughter is dead!!! Instantly Jesus makes this statement; "Fear not: Believe only and she shall be made whole." I don't know about you but I would have a hard time with this whole situation because my baby has to come first..... Please notice that Jesus doesn't pray a prayer but rather tells the dad to "Fear not"! Please don't act like you would be all calm because we would NOT!!! Finally the journey gets underway, they get to the house and everyone in the community is there in full emotion at the speed of light. Jesus told them that she would be fine but they went from wailing to laughing in a religious split second. O' how we can be so spiritual and do a complete turnaround when needed to stay in time with our religion. What does Jesus do? He puts them all out because their DOUBT is having a negative influence on the Spirit. Doubt is a Faith Buster, so tell it to GO!!! (Mark 5:22-43, Luke 8:41-56)
The next time you are hit with news that turns you upside down emotionally, speak to the doubt, tell it to go and stand in FAITH!!! Jesus doesn't worry, fear or doubt, we are joint heirs with Him so we cannot worry, fear or doubt if we want the same results He experienced!!!

I Believe,

"God is Greater"

It doesn't matter how we feel about our present circumstances God is not bound by our circumstances. He is much greater than any situation that you might find yourself in at any given moment. Just keep reading, believing and speaking the Word of God, IT WILL MOVE MOUNTAINS!!!

"Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world." (‭1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭4‬ KJV)

Do you have a mountain sitting on you today? Do as Jesus instructed, speak to the mountain and cast it into the sea!!!

"For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall SAY unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he SAITH shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he SAITH! (Mark‬ ‭11‬:‭23‬ KJV)

Is it possible you spend too much time telling God how big your mountain is rather than telling the mountain how BIG your God is?  Just curious....

Please let God Bless You!!!

"Beloved, I WISH above all things that thou mayest PROSPER and be in HEALTH even as thy soul prospereth." (‭3 John‬ ‭1‬:‭2‬ KJV)

God desires to bless every area of your life!! I know what you are thinking, "Preacher, How can you say that when I'm anything but blessed"! I can say that very emphatically, God's Word is sure and can be trusted because it's eternal without change. The fuel that fuels the Kingdom of God is Faith!! Do you have Faith that God does love you enough to bless you abundantly? If you don't have this level of Faith, then you will get what you have Faith for, if you believe you will always have a hard time, barely get through each week from payday to payday, then that's what you will get. Think Big, Pray Big, Believe Big and get out on your front porch everyday and look for Big Blessings to come down your road with your name on them. You must have pure Faith that is founded in the Love of God. Do you love God? Do you really believe He loves you? We must walk in love in every way to get our Faith functioning which will draw the Blessing of God to us like a magnet to steel!!

"For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision ( physical covenant sign for Jews) availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; (lack of covenant action in lives of Gentiles) BUT FAITH WHICH WORKETH BY LOVE. (‭Galatians‬ ‭5‬:‭6‬ KJV)

"And we have known and BELIEVED THE LOVE that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him."(‭1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭16‬ KJV)

Walk in love, have faith in God and you will see blessings begin to flow into your life from various avenues that God has set up to use to get the blessings to you!!!!

Facts about Truth!!

Truth has never been popular! This is the reason you hear so little of it in our world! We hear a lot of information but is it inspired Truth?
"Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?" (‭Galatians‬ ‭4‬:‭16‬ KJV)

Truth comes from God, His Word is a written copy! The Bible is the only thing on this planet that stays the same. It is unchanging and never needs an update!
"For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven." (‭Psalms‬ ‭119‬:‭89‬ KJV)

Truth will make you free, nothing else will free you from bondage but you must know the Truth! If you will know the Truth it will free you from fear, sin, hopelessness, etc...
"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (‭John‬ ‭8‬:‭32‬ KJV)

Truth is revealed to you by the Holy Spirit! The Apostle Paul makes this very clear in the letters to the young body of believers!
"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God."(‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭2‬:‭9-10‬ KJV)

Truth is not the opinions of men, make sure you know the difference!
"And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God." (‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭2‬:‭4-5‬ KJV)

Truth will change the Facts as you know them today!! If you are having trouble paying your light bill, that's a fact but God's Truth about His provision for His children can change that financial fact!
"But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."(‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭19‬ KJV)

Jesus is the living manifestation of complete Truth!
"For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ"(‭John‬ ‭1‬:‭17‬ KJV)

You must Worship in Spirit and Truth if you are to truly Worship God! Just because you participated in an activity called worship in a building on Sunday doesn't necessarily mean you've worshipped God!
"God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. "(‭John‬ ‭4‬:‭24‬ KJV)

Truth reveals darkness, hypocrisy, hidden sin, religious game players therefore the reason some people had rather be around partial truths so they can justify their behavior to their satisfaction!
"For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. "(‭John‬ ‭3‬:‭20-21‬ KJV)

Babies in the house!!!

Once married, it is the desire of most women to have children and begin a family. However some couples struggle to conceive which causes a full range of emotions in their lives. They often times wonder why some women conceive so easily which can become part of their struggle. This struggle can be so heavy that they can hardly bear to be around their friends that are pregnant or already have the desired children in their growing family. The struggle is real, it's painful and can lead to depression, stress, etc... God is the giver of life and is in full control of the plans He has for your life. If you are someone you love is dealing with this struggle, go to the Word of God and claim the Promise of God that is applicable for this situation. It was God's original intent for man and women to come together in the covenant of marriage to bring forth children. When you pray, claim God's original intent for marriage, stand firm on the Word in Faith and God will bring forth from your womb the blessing you are believing for according to His Word!!!

"He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the Lord." (‭Psalms‬ ‭113‬:‭9‬ KJV)

Let's agree together that God will fulfill His promise in the lives of the couples that are desiring a child or children!!!! AGREED AND AMEN.... ...

Control your life before it controls you....

I was talking with some very dear friends of mine and Kari's about a very stressful issue that had just popped up in their life. I would like to use a direct quote to let you know how they felt about their situation. I think a lot of us can relate to this, " We had life by the tail, woke up one morning and it had us by the tail"! I don't know if you've got your life completely under control or not but at least we need to strive, with God's help to do so.

"He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls." (‭Proverbs‬ ‭25‬:‭28‬ KJV)

In the Old Testament cities had walls around them for protection with watch towers for the "watchmen on the wall" to be able to see the enemy coming from a distance. If you don't see the issue, whatever it may be, you will most likely lose the battle unless you can think fast on your feet. The only way you can think "on your feet" is to be filled with God's wisdom

"He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city."(‭Proverbs‬ ‭16‬:‭32‬ KJV)

Solomon says that if you can "rule your spirit you can take a city" which equates to a lot of wisdom and power!!! Who or what is in charge of your life? What is the controlling factor that controls you everyday. Do you feel tossed to and fro by every gust of wind? Are you standing tall and strong like the flourishing Palm trees that the bible speaks of?

"The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God." (‭Psalms‬ ‭92‬:‭12-13‬ KJV)

The Apostle Paul instructs us in the NT that we should be rooted and grounded in Christ. He is our foundation upon which we rest so when the winds of life blow in our direction we are still standing after the storm is over because it will come to an end. There will be a better day, the question is, what condition will you be in when it's over, what will you have left standing? Read, believe and speak the Word of God over your life everyday and that will put God in charge which in return will result in everything working out for your good!!!

"Gnats and Camels"

Religious people are truly amazing and predictable as the sunrise!! Please remember that there is a vast difference between religious and spiritual, religiosity and Christianity! Religion is based on an ever evolving set of rules in a proverbial unseen book that changes with each generation, always against the popular culture of the day. The super religious always seem to be mad at some kind of sin but they usual holler so loud you really have no idea what they are mad at this week!! Christianity is based on a book called the "Word of God", it never changes because it was written in heaven then manifested in time to men that put it in words by the prompting of the Holy Ghost. Christ is the center of Christianity, willingly gave His life on a cross and walked out of the tomb three days later under His own power. The things people do to be religious rather than Christian are astounding. In Matthew 23 Jesus breaks it down so we can get a grasp on the difference. "For they (Hypocrites and Pharisees) bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers." (‭Matthew‬ ‭23‬:‭4‬ KJV). The leaders of the religious are constantly adding more rules to the list that one must abide by to be called good. Jesus condenses the whole concept to one statement, "Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel." (‭Matthew‬ ‭23‬:‭24‬ KJV). The religious hypocrite will swallow a camel of religion with ease but choke of a gnat of truth. Hypocrisy is rampant at the "House of God" because human nature is religious and deceptive to the point of deceiving ones self. Seriously, you really think people don't know the real you, the foolish games you play are not secrets. Your fig leaves have long since been shriveled and have exposed the real you, sad but true!!! The Holy Spirit is being poured out on all flesh which will expose your nakedness as with Adam. "Adam, where art thou?"

God's Commanded Blessing!!

"The Lord shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee."(‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭28‬:‭8‬ KJV)"

1- God commands a blessing upon you!!

2- God blesses everything you touch!!

3- God blesses what is yours!!

4- What you have He gave you!!!

You may ask how do I get this in my life? When you wake up, give thanks for what you have, it sets it apart for God's Blessing! Watch what you touch, don't tough things that you know deep down God doesn't desire to Bless. Ask God to give you whatever else you need so He can bless you to be able to be a blessing. God's people are charitable which creates a cycle of blessing in their lives. Always remember that whatever you have that is good, it came from God!!
Please read Deuteronomy 28:1-14......

"But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day." (‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭8‬:‭18‬ KJV)" God really does have a plan for your life!!!

The Key to your Cage!!

The walls you've built to keep all the people out that have hurt you are keeping you locked in a small place, not near big enough for your wingspan. Do you want to fly as an eagle or stay caged in a small familiar place that will forever limit who you really are.... You will continue to hurt and hide until you forgive those that have hurt you. They may never even know you have forgiven them but it's the key that unlocks the cage you've built. Walls have two sides and the outside is limitless but the inside is very limited. You sit there and stare at the same walls thinking your showing "them" how strong you can be but they have moved on and you are stuck behind your wall.

"Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:" (‭Philippians‬ ‭1‬:‭6‬ KJV)

God has work to do in you, tear your wall down so He can show you how big His world is.....

Where are you?

When you stop leaning on those that enable you to be attached to them, you will grow up and be confident! Aren't you the least bit curious how awesome you could be leaning on God rather than someone else that has no power to take you to a higher place in life. As long as you lean on someone other than Jesus, you will be defined by their world, you won't ever have your own world. You live in their world thinking it's yours but it's not because you are in someone else's space. God has a "large place" just for you but you are sitting there in someone else's world, moving about but never going anywhere......

"He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me."(‭Psalms‬ ‭18‬:‭19‬ KJV). Get Real/Get Delivered!!!

"I Declare Double!"

Well, we are finally here, the last days!! It's getting dark out, the thunder is rumbling, the lightening is flashing and THE STORM COMETH!! There is nothing holding back the coming of Jesus to the clouds to call His blood washed bride to our heavenly home. Everything that must be fulfilled for this to happen has been completed in detail, He could come as a thief in the night at any moment! I strongly suggest you take the Prophet Zechariah's advice and "Turn you to the Strong Hold"!! Jesus is our place of safety, we are held captive by Hope, an expectation of His return!! What I love about my God is He declares a DOUBLE BLESSING on us during the darkest days of our lives. He speaks of a double blessing many times in the Word of God and He does not lie. How can it be that He can bless us double in the worst of times? That's just the way Jesus rolls, He's cool like that...... I am most definitely a "Prisoner of Hope"!!!

"Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee;" (‭Zechariah‬ ‭9‬:‭12‬ KJV)

"Thus saith The Lord;"

(1) Refrain from weeping

(2) Stop the Tears

(3) God will reward you

(4) You will walk away from the land of the enemy

(5) There is hope in the end

(6) Your children will be ok

In other words, God can handle whatever has come against you!!! So, by His Grace get control of your emotions instead of them controlling you. The Holy Spirit inside of you will make things happen on your behalf!!! If you love God then you don't have to do it alone, you don't have to fix it on your own; He has made a list of what is going to happen in your life if you will just trust Him!
You are still breathing so it is not over yet.....We win.....

"Thus saith the Lord; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears: for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the Lord; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy. And there is hope in thine end, saith the Lord, that thy children shall come again to their own border." (‭Jeremiah‬ ‭31‬:‭16-17‬ KJV)
