Thee experience!
And he sings to me

Amante lacey and champion band have this song called hero that is nothing short of a love ballad. Lyrics are:

"You have captured my heart and its okay because its yours. And I desire you because you’re incredible. You are my hero, You are my superstar, Lord, you are the lover of my soul. You’re amazing, so amazing… so amazing! And I’m in love with you…"

I woke up to that but it was God singing it to me. WOW! This Great God took out the time to give me his heart because he is in love with me? That in itself is amazing.

I could expound on how I don’t deserve it but I would miss the moment where he is pouring back into me. I could pretend that everyday is easy, which its not. But id miss the awesome song he sings to me about how awesome I am to him.

God is not a man that he should lie. And that’s even more overwhelming to know that what he says about me is true. I have captured his heart and its okay because its mine? That’s too much! All of the contents in it.

Thank you for choosing me despite me. Thank you for loving me despite me. Thank you for never having the heart of a man which is qick to judge, accuse, tournment, assassinate, hurt, and anything negative. I’m grateful God… YES! Simply grateful you call me yours! :-)

I am free

I’ll be the first to admit that there are times I forget the liberty God has given me. I have gotten caught up in the cares of this world, and fallen short of Gods glory as a result. But today nearly 15 minutes ago, I ran across somthing I had written for my music ministry and it hit me…

God has delivered you and you’re allowing circumstances to dictate your liberty. This is not who you are! YOU ARE FREE!!! It sits well with my soul and now I can rejoice for I have victory in Jesus. Nothing will seperate me from his love. NOTHING! Now… back to my hiatus. :-P

Wasted Opportunity

Genesis 10:17-25 NLT

"As Jesus was starting out on his way to Jerusalem, a man came running up to him, knelt down, and asked, "Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?" "Why do you call me good?" Jesus asked. "Only God is truly good. But to answer your question, you know the commandments: `You must not murder. You must not commit adultery. You must not steal. You must not testify falsely. You must not cheat anyone. Honor your father and mother.’" "Teacher," the man replied, "I’ve obeyed all these commandments since I was young." Looking at the man, Jesus felt genuine love for him. "There is still one thing you haven’t done," he told him. "Go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me." At this the man’s face fell, and he went away sad, for he had many possessions. Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, "How hard it is for the rich to enter the Kingdom of God!" This amazed them. But Jesus said again, "Dear children, it is very hard to enter the Kingdom of God. In fact, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!"

Its crazy how we think we can bargain with God and feel we can get whatever we want without giving all that He has asked for. This passage has touched me. Here it is 5:39 Sunday morning and I’m up reading and thinking. I haven’t done this in probably ever. I was like the rich man- following a lot of rules but full of greed, lust, and any form of spiritual wickedness you may be able to think of. I wanted to go to heaven but I still wanted to fornicate. I wanted to go to heaven but I liked to drink and party. I wanted to go to heaven but wouldn’t give up the things God asked me to give up.

Christ said that its easier for a camel to squeeze through a needles eye then for a rich man to enter into heaven.

Now we all know the likelihood of that actually happening…IMPOSSIBLE!!!!! So…. the question Jesus asked comes… “what is a man profited, if he shall gain the WHOLE WORLD, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” Matt. 16:28

I made up in my mind that I would let nothing separate me from the love of Christ (romans 8:35). What will be the wager for your soul? (Romans 6:23)…DEATH OR LIFE?

Still dreaming

Last night I dreamed I was at a youth summit here in my city. A woman asked me to sing and usually I say no because one thing I can honestly say I hate is being put on the spot to do something weter I love to do it or not. So like usual, I say no but proceed to sing. Well… I open my mouth and its as if I’m hoarse. But as I’m singing, I’m realizing there is no run for me to do (believe me! I’m sincerely trying to make it s colorful as I can.) because there was no need.

I have no clue what transpired but tears began to roll down my face, and a sound erupted in that place among those young people and it was like immediately deliverance began taking place.

I thought to myself, while singing, “I ain’t doing nothing.” And it was because I was trying to be like everyone else and riff and run. But I hadn’t taken into account that the moment presented could be a ministry opp. WOW God!

I woke up wiping my face because the power of God was so real but realized this was a dream that was real enough to actually taste.

One last thing. My oldest sister was there walking with me up until the point I started singing. But once God flooded the place, she went amongst the crowd. Saying that to say, don’t give up on those who you feel aren’t doing the right thing and aren’t going to be doing the right thing. God declared that he is married to the backslider. So at any given point God could present the perfect moment for their re-salvation. And it may be through your obedience.

Welp. Thought I’d share since it has clearly been a week since I had last wrote. Be encouraged body. Don’t count yourself or anyone else out. The fight is not over!

I used to be phased by runs and riffs but these days im really listening for intent. Worship unto God sounds much different then erodious singing! Watch your message people of God.

Teach me your ways

"Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths." (Psalm 25:4) KJV

I asked for direction and God is granting me this one desire above all… that I may know his ways, that I take on his heart and walk in his character and countenance.

I’ve had the holy ghost since 2005 but have only truely come to know the manifested power of God this year. I’ve seen him use me and have been overwhelmed at the thought of using me.

I used to be one to say,”I’m not worthy!” But in the first book of jeremiah it states the he knew jeremiah before he was formed in his mothers womb. That same text is applied for all of us and simply means that “he knew us!” Every mistake, challenges of our flesh, everything God already knew. As a result of me realizing this my prayers went from afraid to talk to God to a yearning in finding out who he is and exactly who I am to be in him.

I asked him to teach me his ways, to give me a heart like his and slowly but surely my heart is growingfor him and what angers him is angering me. What hurts him or makes him laugh is becoming my pain or my joy.

Simplifying it… I love him so I want to be just like him… in the way I’m supposed to be. Daily I’m asking…”TEACH ME YOR WAYS!”

Never be afraid to stand out. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalms 139:14

Try this (a note to the “ministers”)

Have you ever ministered or prepared for ministry and taken into account what you’re pouring into others spirits? I just had a mini dream series where I was at a major event. Thousands of people in the audience and the minister on stage only addressed the first few rows. As I proceeded to walk further back in this large auditorium, the peoples expressions were of anger, disgust, they were sad and soon after I noticed this, those faces turned into the minister.

Those people were unefected because of the unaddressed issues in the ministers life. This person got up on this platform knowing how to entertain the flesh but not minister to the spirit of man.

When you address these issues in you, ministry goes frm being a paycheck, to breaking chains and pulling down strongholds.

So to the ministers (be it, preaching, teaching, singing, evangelizing, etc). When God begins exposing the stuff in you That isn’t like him, don’t ignore it. Take time to kill that stuff. If you don’t, there is a chance that when those doors open for you to d “ministry” it won’t be effective to anyone but the front row. While the people you were supposed to reach are all the way in the back disgusted, annoyed, and angry because you came out like a superstar fogetting to take care of self so that you could be of service to Gods body….

Good day! I hope this blessed you in some way

We’re here

I woke up early this morning from what I consider a nightmare. Orgy’s on general television and the wealth of the wicked that was supposedly laid up for the righteous was mishandled once received by our church leaders. More murdering in the church, abuse of power and pure perversion. Everything I can say in detail but what I saw scared the crap out of me and when I woke up I went into prayer.

The word of God says in Timothy 3:1-7[kjv] (I’m not quoting the whole text just verse 1) “this know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.”

God has sent warning from 2000 years ago and prior of what to expect during these times and it has definitely come into view. Our world has literally flipped and began operating on a system so far from God.

In verse 12 of that same chapter it warns us of suffering persecution for living Godly. Its so crazy to me that people who go to church will open there mouths and began to ridicule you for standing on Gods word and believing he is who his word declares him to be. What are you going to church for? That doesn’t give you relationship maybe that’s the problem… the time it takes to uild a relationship with God is too long and the sacrifice is too great.

Id rather suffer for a short while here on earth then be in eternity missing out on the peace that surpasses all understanding day and night.

For those who profess to be christians, it is time for us to stand and rise to the purpose God has placed on our lives. He is coming back and sooner then we think… although my soul rjoices, I stll have a work to do… WE HAVE A WORK TO DO!!!

Remodeling Me

I used to be one who was afraid to embrace the me I was created to be. After talking to my pastor and fellow youth at my church (The Revolution{Woot! Woot!}). I realized just how important it is for me to be who I was created to be. Although society may not embrace your gift as a whole, I can guarantee you will be embraced by someone. but you have to learn to love your voice, your image, your creation.

The same way God gave each of us different fingerprints, God gave us all different gifts. The moment you operate and act like everyone else is the moment you realize you are far from your original status.

If John the baptist has Peters voice, he would have been before his time as well as totally unrecieved. He was the voice of one (1) crying out in the wilderness… The wilderness is where he found his voice and his identity in God. Surrounded by alot of people may have drowned him out and him talking may have sounded like everyone else in a crowd.

Soooooo… today… this week… I encourage you to find your place in God. Discover the voice you have and even if you sound wierd at first, Eventually, with persistance, you’ll learn to love who God has made you.

Haha! There is evidence

"And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not." [Galatians 6:9]

Today, June 12, 2011, 14 indivuals decided not to faint in their endeavor to find God. They were filled with the holy ghost and with evidence of speaking in other tongues. Thanks to my pastor, eld. Larry weathers jr, and church, the revolution, the spirit of God was ushered in. God has proven himself once again at the rev. If you have any doubts about us, I dare you, come and see what we are about yourselves. You will never leave the same. That’s a GUARNTEE!!! Mark 16:20 folks

Give it all!

There is a simple request from the one who gave it all. He’s asking for your all. Its not deep… but it can appear difficult. One thing about appearance is it can be deceiving. See, God doesn’t ask for the impossible but he ask for the least from us. After all this is the one who sacrificed his own child in order to even gain audience of us. A bunch of sinful “christian” professing people. So today… right now… whatever you have left to give… GIVE!!! Give it all

Just wait [exodus 14]

God told moses to speak the israelites and tell them to camp by the sea. Once again God hardened pharoahs heart and he set pursuit after the israelites. When pharoah and his 600 chariot men came into contact with them, the israelites begin to fear, crying out to God and teling moses that they should go back to beingin bondage due to the enemys pursuit for them. In response, Moses simply says, “Fear not, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. The egyptians you’ve seen today, you wll see no more.” (Paraphrase).

God is saying the same thing to us. Stand still and see my salvation… I WILL SAVE YOU! [Isaiah 59:19] when the enemy comes in like a flood, the spirit of the lord will raise a standard against him. In order for God to save us from the bondage of the enemy, we have to literally believe his word is the absolute truth and let nothing separate us from his love [romans 8:39]. Although the days may seem long and test may seem hard, [romans 8:28] all things work together. Your breakthrough is coming and deliverance is nigh.

It was while the israelites were crossing the red sea that God drowned the enemy therefore proving there is but one God and the love this one true God has for his people is unconditional. He will go to the extent of purging the filth out of our lives so that even the demons will know to bow at the only one who has dominion.

Remember, no matter what you are going through, God is with you in the fire and won’t place more on you then you can bare. He really loves you… HE LOVES YOU!!!!! Just wait on him to bring you through like he did the israelites.
