Fleeting Thoughts

What bright color elephant can you picture in your head? Let me guess, pink or blue? Or maybe I’m wrong. Bet you are thinking of it now!

Well, all this to talk about fleeting thoughts and how although they can be short-lived, they can help shape or break our future!

We all have different moral compasses, and for me, I choose to base my morals on the Word and Spirit of God.

When a fleeting thought of lust or temptation comes, I have a choice to entertain that thought or not. Have I fell prey to these thoughts? I have at times, but what’s funny is they usually come at my weakest moments!

Fleeting thoughts will come and go, but it is how we manage them that matters! If a constant thought begins to torment you, then usually that means it must be shared with a trustworthy friend! Once that is done, have them pray with you. If things still don’t subside, begin to talk to God more and look up scriptures that will help! Fasting is another option! The enemy hates when we pray! You want to know why? Because it really does work!

Our mind can be a battlefield, but there is only One God who helps us win! He died to make us victorious! He rose again so that His glory can fill the earth through us! So even when the enemy throws a fleeting thought your way… through Christ, you will always WIN! He will bring you from glory to glory!

The Universal Language

Language is the vehicle or avenue to communication and relationships. Although there are various languages one can speak, the most powerful language, that is also universal is the language of love!

Love can be seen through body language and also active communication, but so can hate.

There is this constant battle between love and hate. It can make things and relationships get “complicated!”

The most “complicated” thing about it, is how to distinguish the two in our own lives!

When our atmosphere is stemmed in a lot of hate, our body language begins to show that. It also begins to show in our communication…especially when we are weak or buttons are being pushed! This all begins in childhood and can stick with us even in adulthood! 

“Oh, stop being so stupid!” “You are never going to amount to anything!” “You will never find love.” -hate words

It takes a lot of wisdom and maturity to truly use the beautiful language of LOVE!

No one said it would be easy! That’s why some choose to HATE instead of love, because it’s “easier”! Or so it may seem! It actually takes a lot more energy to hate someone than love! Even hating yourself takes the best out of you! 

Think about all the hurt and unforgiveness, and you think of all the excuses of why that person is UNLOVEABLE!

But when we go on to categorize as someone being unloveable…that’s when We are wrong!

God never intended us to be consumed by hatred toward one another or ourselves! We all have issues, whether we realize it or not!

But that’s the thing, We have to want to realize it!

When Love becomes everything, we become more powerful! We begin to walk in freedom and confidence! When LOVE Comes in to invade our hearts, the language of hate begins to be forgotten!

When you think about Crime Scenes, the one thing you must have is Evidence!

Well, when LOVE changes you…it removes all the evidence of hate! Maybe every now and then on our worst days it shows back up, but LOVE reminds us that we are not that person anymore! And that hate doesn’t define us!

What language are we speaking on a daily basis? What about our body language?

If I told you about LOVE, maybe you can change your mind about some things!

Well, here it goes in a nutshell!

YOU ARE LOVEABLE! You are WORTH dying for! You don’t have to earn love, because it is FREE! Love doesn’t come in a fairy tale story! Love doesn’t come in a box! It is not defined as a feeling, but TRUE LOVE can make you feel like you are the most important person in the whole world! It’s an amazing experience! THIS VERY LOVE…is perfect in every way and keeps you safe and secure! It does no harm! You may be thinking…yeah….but what’s the catch?

The catch is…you may have never experienced this type of love since you had to ask! “Too good to be true, right?”

You decide!

I myself have experienced a love greater than life itself! I can testify and have hardcore evidence that there is God who is TRUE LOVE! A God who came down to earth to become just like you and me…to have a relationship with you and me…and because you and I are worth dying for! NO one is exempt from this LOVE! Not even You! Whoever told you that you are unloved was unloved! Don’t get confused on who your enemy is! The deceiver, who manipulated and used language to make one to believe that his intentions were good…but AHHH Wrong..Satan is a liar and he HATES you!

You remind Him of God, because you were made in God’s very own image!

You remind the enemy of what who he could never be!

You remind Him of LOVE!

Amongst all the hate in the world, we being to learn and speak that very language, until LOVE steps in!

Well, things are about to change for you! Things are going to begin to look up, and you are about to be made whole! The evidence of hate will begin to fade away as you enter into this beautiful, indescribable, tangible, God…who is the author and very definition of LOVE!

You are left in wonder…because this LOVE as it surrounds you and fills you up right now…is too good to be true! It’s better than the fairy tales! IT’s real, and there is a happy ending!

LOVE always wins in this life! So you might as well accept this Jesus, the Savior and lover of your soul! You might as well become God’s child, and learn how to truly live! His LOVE has always been there for you, and in His eyes, YOU ARE PERFECT! He’s had His eyes on you since the day you were conceived! 

You are His favorite! You were never an orphan in His eyes!

Once you’ve experienced HIS LOVE, you will never want anything else!

So the universal language of LOVE is the oldest language that exists…and the ONLY language that came to save the world! The very love that came to save YOU!

Let Jesus, who is true love, into your heart today! Start a brand new relationship with Him! Start a friendship that will last forever! Let Him Father you like you never been fathered before! He will fill in all the gaps in your past! His love will help you forgive as you confess yours to Him! Also as you learn to forgive yourself!

Nothing can separate you from HIS LOVE! (Romans 8: 31-39) You can’t escape it! He is all around you and the only way you can truly live is by receiving ALL the LOVE HE gives and letting Him become God in your life! He knows you more than you know yourself, and He has the best plan for your life! He is faithful and will never leave your or disappoint you!

Remember, hate makes things difficult, that’s that’s why LOVING can be hard at times. WE must let go of the hate and let God flood our hearts, minds, and souls! We must surround ourselves with LOVE! Meaning…we must surround ourselves with people who can show the evidence of true love, like going to church! We must read and hear about His love as reinforcement, like reading or listening to the Bible! We must communicate with God Himself, and maintain the most important relationship you will ever have in life!!!

Here is a glimpse of this love in 1 Corinthian 13  The “love chapter:”

 

1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned,[a] but have not love, I gain nothing.

4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;[b] 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

8 Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.

13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

As you read this passage, what do you see?

I myself see a perfect love coming to rescue me from my old ways of thinking, and teaching me to truly be loved and to love! It talks about loving from the deepest part of your heart! It’s not a display you put on. It’s a genuine type of thing that only comes from knowing Him; God, the author of love!

Blessings to you all! love

Legalism is about naming sin, instead of naming the Savior of sin

When someone’s message becomes about What Sin Is….the gospel becomes watered down.

Jesus becomes small, and SIN becomes the major focus!

Wasn’t that how the Pharisees in the Bible acted?

Our hearts can mean well and try to help people, but how has calling out people’s sin or what you feel is sin ever reached them? Has it moved them to come to you and ask Jesus into their heart?

The only thing that has ever changed people is the gospel of Jesus and His amazing LOVE!

Love looks past a multitude of sin! Love is not puffed up, and is kind! Love trusts and hopes! Love is patient.

Is our sole message giving life and hope to others!? Or is it giving them grief, disapproval, and/or a belief system that may not be completely clear in the Scriptures.

Why do we feel so compassionately about what God hates, than what He actually loves!?

He loves people! So let’s stop chasing peoples sin, and start chasing their souls for the true gospel! The gospel that changes lives! Then allow Holy Spirit to do the rest!

We can’t compete with Holy Spirit! And we do get things wrong!! Who are we but mortal men?

It’s all about Jesus!!! Not sin! It’s about reaching people through His Love while meeting their needs, and winning them by the truth of the gospel of Christ!

Just too busy…but really?

” Tis the season!” Right? It doesn’t have to be!

It had been quite a while since I spent alone time with Jesus, so I said, “Forgive me Lord, please do not pass me by.” And as clear as day, Jesus responded, “ I will never pass you by, just do not pass Me by!”

All of a sudden I saw a vision of Jesus standing in the middle of a room staring at me with arms wide open! Then I see myself in my busyness, walking hurriedly right passed Him trying to do too much!! I never even took the time to look into His beautiful eyes! My eyes filled with tears and my heart cried out to my King who is too amazing to be passed by!!!😢

I know life gets busy, but even though He is God, He’s never too busy for YOU!! He’s always available for you; waiting for you to just let Him hold you, love you, and never let go!!!

I don’t want to be like Martha in the Bible story, who was concerned more about doing things, than honoring the Savior of the World!

I want to be at Jesus’ feet, giving Him the honor, adoration, and the praise He deserves!!!

It’s not about us! It’s about Him!!!

Let’s stop focusing on ourselves, and focus on the Beautiful Giver of life and love, The Amazing Father and creator, the glorious Spirit of God..who beckons us to only be blessed while spending time in His presence!!! We get to be with the Savior who loved us so much to become like us, and leave His throne!!!❤️❤️❤️ How is that not love!? How is that not beyond amazing!!??

Dear God

You always take care of me! I never have to stress because You got my back and You go before me. You are my shield and my Rock.I will stand on ALL Your promises and will put all my faith in You! There is NOTHING You cannot do! Without You, I have no hope or true reason to live. I would be lost and all alone. With You, I have purpose and will never walk alone!  I have hope in the best things and all things are possible!

You make the world go round. You give life to the dead. You give peace in the midst of the storm. You have the power to heal and to free us from everything that is binding us. There is FREEDOM in Your arms, so Jesus, I run into Your warm and loving arms.  Your love is limitless. I let go of my mess and myself and run to You! You have the key to my heart!

Jesus, I love to see Your face and know Your heart. Let me know You more. Your presence is my home. It is where I am satisfied and where I find rest. I find strength and hope! My innocence is restored, my mind is renewed, and my spirit if refreshed. I become more and more like You! I become alive again!

For Your name is higher than all others! Your majesty is full of glory! I’m in awe of You my King and Savior. You sing and dance over me. You keep loving me no matter how I act. Your grace is sufficient for me and Your mercies are new every morning.

Death has no hold of me, sin has no hold on me, cause through You Jesus I got the victory! I sing for joy! I rejoice in new songs to my King of love. My spirit worships Yours! My lips will forever praise You!

Love and Marriage

Love is such a beautiful entity! Its’ affects are so numerous and great! Love warms and softens the heart. It puts a pep in your step. Love always saves the day and brightens your mood.  It allows you to feel the greatest emotion expressed by our Creator God! What does love look like or act like? 1Corinthians 13: 4-7 says, “Love is patient and kind. It is not jealous, boastful, proud, or rude. Love is not selfish, irritable, or keeps records of wrong. Love does not rejoice in evil or injustice, but rejoices in righteousness. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.”

In 1 John 4:16, 17, it says that….God is love and that whoever lives in love also lives in God and God in him. We are being perfected in love, because as He is, so are we in this world! (We are like Christ to the world!)

The more people we are around, the more we must learn how to love like Christ! Then marriage comes into play, which is the best teacher of becoming less selfish and less prideful! We learn the character of Christ, if we are seeking to be like Him! That’s why marriage is a challenge at times, because we all have our own desires and opinions. We also have our own habits, whether they are  good or bad. Then sometimes we may idolize our spouse or become too dependent or expect so much from them that it becomes unhealthy. Something that I learned recently is that in marriage, it’s not two halves becoming one whole, but two wholes becoming one. In many marriages, the partners may not be whole, but broken. Many of us bring baggage into our marriage or maybe have things deep inside of us that we did not know existed. We might display negative emotions from the past toward our spouse after marriage. I personally did not know that I dealt with the Spirit of rejection, untill I blew up in anger toward my husband. I experienced it during my childhood growing up. I didn’t feel loved all the time by my dad because he didn’t show me affection, which is my love language. We all have different ways we feel loved the most and affection and quality time are my main love languages. If you don’t know yours, I encourage you to find out! It is real important for married people to know each others love language, but not just learn about it, but fulfill each others love language! Also, in marriage, each spouse may have two different callings or gifts. I personally want to be in a team with my hubby in ministry, but it doesn’t always mean we will minister side by side. We are to compliment each other and learn to support one another. We are also there to help each other and pray for one another! That’s why we are called “help-meets.” 🙂

To the married and single alike, You are all in a marriage covenant with Christ. So learning how to love, means loving Him first! When we are passionately in love with Him, then we learn how to passionately love others! Love should be the deciding factor in all situations. Love conquers all! God’s love, that is! And the only way we are ever going to be perfected in love is to stay in God’s word and in His presence! Putting Him first is key!

I pray that you are blessed in your walk with Christ and your spouse! I pray that you fall deeper in love with Christ for the rest of your life here! He has so much in store for you! Keep pressing on and living in His love, so that we can be Christ to the world! Have a Lovely day! 🙂

Watchmen on the Wall

Isaiah 62:6 I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; They shall never hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of the LORD, do not keep silent,

Ezekiel 3:17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear a word from My mouth, and give them warning from Me:

God is calling and raising up end-time warriors who will commit to Christ and His agenda!

He is calling out Watchmen who will wake up and be aware of how the Lord is moving and operating on the earth and also aware of the enemy’s schemes and demonic spirits.

He is calling out Watchman who will warn the people of the wrath to come and to watch and pray! A Watchman who is so engulfed in the presence of God that they know His voice and His mysteries!

We are not of this world and this is not our home! We are in a spiritual battle against satan and his evil forces of darkness.

But I say to you mighty warriors of Christ, Wake Up, Rise Up, and assume your positions! Become the leader Christ is calling you to be!

If you have a passion and vision to see people free, rise up and lead! People are in need of a leader who gets it and will stand up for Christ and the truth! Who will not lack integrity and who will have a mighty zeal for God!

God is putting a firey zeal and boldness in Your heart! He is allowing His Fire to consume you, so that it can consume others!

Let’s rise up against the fear that is causing God’s people to sit back and get comfortable! Shout those walls of fear DOWN in Jesus’ name! Let’s start worshipping and praising NOW for the victory that has already been won through the blood of God’s Son!!

Let’s let out our WAR CRY…our Roar! We have been given authority over ALL the power of the enemy! Luke 10:19 “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

The devil says, “If you back off, I will too.” God is raising up His warriors who will be able to stand the heat and taunting of the enemy! A people who are determined to please Christ with their whole being and not give into temptation! A people who will be faithful unto death! Let’s not let the enemy move us to fight, but the passion for Christ and the passion to WIN for His glory!

You were made for this time! You were called to not settle for less, but be the best you for His glory! You were called to be watchmen to stand on the walls of your city and home and proclaim the victory! You were called to declare the Word of the Lord and warn His people of the end times!

I encourage you to read these scriptures! It’s more about the watchmen on the wall! 🙂 Be blessed!
