(Psalm 103:12‬ ‭NKJV) ‬‬“As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.” I want people free in Christ and not shackled to this world. When I think of fighting for this world I get mixed feelings. But when I focus on Christ and what we’ve been commissioned to do, I’m reminded that we have been created with purpose for the glory of God to go out and make disciples. We gotta constantly surrender areas of our lives to Christ! And this includes forgiveness. We limit ourselves when we are unforgiving. God cannot take us where He wants to take us when we refuse to forgive others. Forgiveness frees us in ways we won’t understand until we step out in faith and trust God with the details and just do it. How can we expect to be forgiven, if we cannot forgive others. The truth is we won’t be. ‭‭(Matthew‬ ‭6:14-15‬ ‭NKJV) “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” We can not start comparing our wrongs or our sins with another. Sin is sin to God. We cannot be unforgiving to another and think that we are being forgiven, because it doesn’t work that way. It is detrimental to our spiritual life.  We can only experience so much with God, but we are not fully receiving what He has for us. It’s impossible to please God without faith, and an unforgiving heart is going up against God because when we refuse to forgive & allow ourselves to be stubborn & stuck in the past or just unable to forgive this person again & again, we suffer tremendously. We may not realize it because we have nothing to compare it to, but we do. No one should be quiet about this or act as though it is minor, because it is not. As soon as I forgave others in my life I felt a weight lifted off of me & I was set free, and I’ve grown so much through it. And God’s promises hold true in my life and I am no longer a prisoner of this world. Once I gained an understanding through God’s Word that I’ve been forgiven, it’s hard to believe that I could even think about not forgiving those that have hurt me. Especially when my innocence was stripped from me at a young age & has had a negative impact in my life, I thought how can I forgive them, and some others I could not forgive right away. They caused too much pain and I was angry. But it became difficult to move further in my walk when I was harboring this anger & bitterness inside me towards the individuals that hurt me. Isn’t this the same heart that I love God with? So I’m now definitely in a place in my life that I could never imagine not forgiving someone, and I recognize it’s because I’ve been forgiven and have learned to forgive others. It hit me hard because I have seen what God has done with those things that Satan wanted to destroy me with, it became part of my testimony and now I can see what God can do in the lives of others through my testimonies. Now it’s so easy to forgive someone, I don’t even think twice about it or let it set in. I know who I belong to and who my rewarder is. I just start praying for people instead and focus on what we all face in our lives and that God is so much bigger. And truthfully when we put things in His hands, we see that He will handle those that come up against us, but most of the time we can be so focused on what someone did to us, that we miss the fact that others are in pain, and that we all fall short. We may not understand it all, but when we do it hits us hard in our spirit. How can we have the love of God inside us and not want others to come to God knowing the alternative. It’s not a joke & not one of God’s children would want to see anyone in hell. What we need to deal with is the anger that festers inside us. Especially if we have to keep forgiving the same person, but we can forgive and let go. Forgiving is not giving permission for the behavior of someone else, or accepting what they did, but forgiveness releases us so that we can continue to draw closer to God and not hold any sin against ourselves. God has purposed us for many things. We must not miss out. We break generational curses through forgiveness. A very popular area for forgiveness is for the father or mother that wasn’t there for us. In order to move on and break the curse, we must forgive. We must recognize that it’s hard to get something from someone who doesn’t have it in them themselves. May we through Christ help those in need to discover Jesus the way we do. And if we are not experiencing Him ourselves than we must stop right now & ask for forgiveness for ourselves for not being able to forgive. And ask what it is that we can do to move further with God, comprehending once again that when we don’t forgive others, God will not forgive us. And we know ultimately what that looks like. There is no way around it. I pray that all may come to a place of forgiveness in their heart. (Ephesians‬ ‭4:31-32‬ ‭NKJV‬‬) “Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”

May we continue to pray for one another & lift up the body of Christ. Let’s pray for all relationships to be healed & may we learn to not be ashamed of our past. May we learn to encourage one another in Christ & speak life into the lives of others. May we learn to get to know each other on the REAL. I don’t know how many more stories I will have to hear about how much we don’t know someone. And how many get tossed aside for being different. Not everyone has been open & honest enough or has the ability to understand the root of the issues at hand. We spend so much time telling people who they are, what they need to do & what they need to be thankful for because someone always has it worse, but why compare the pain… pain is pain & it’s the comparing that gets us in trouble. We totally miss out on asking someone how they are really doing & then being moved by compassion & love to use our ability to listen, pray, communicate with them, heal & grow. It has been very beneficial to my walk to know what I was dealing with on the inside & what needed to be addressed in my life to be able to be healed to move on from the past hurts. Many of us have wounds that need to be healed & Jesus is our Healer from the inside out. I know for me God had been showing me so many things around me for years, starting with me that needed attention, when I would cry out to God & just talk to Him & ask for His help, He responded. But it wasn’t until I surrendered my life to Christ that it all began to come together & make sense. I knew that my road wasn’t going to be an easy one with the expected, never mind the unexpected that I would face. But God sent us His Son to do for us what we cannot do for ourselves. He saved us from ourselves. And as long as we stay focused on God, we will be in tune with what’s taking place, even the things we may not want to believe. There are no secrets hidden from God & we need to get to a place within ourselves, and then with each other, to be open & even if we disagree, we can share our perspective & continue learning from the Word, and know that we are at different places in our walk, and we are all a work in progress. With that being said, don’t underestimate what God is showing someone more mature in their walk. It has nothing to do with age, but all to do with our obedience to God & being a follower of Christ to be led by His examples that gives us the knowledge & wisdom to know what we need to learn and how we can be delivered from our past to move forward in a healthy God-fearing direction with Christ. We try to do so much on our own, and we think that speaking about our pain will cause pain in someone else’s life, but it doesn’t have to when we know that from the beginning, we’ve needed forgiveness & healing. Many have come from the brokenness of families. Many generations have seen a lot & dealt with a lot & even avoided a lot of it was too hurtful, but in any case we must keep in mind that it’s all spiritual warfare. Once we grasp this, we no longer have to look at individuals as a problem, but it’s the repeated behaviors that need an evaluation & understanding of how we operate as an individual & then work with others as we grow as a person. Problems don’t just go away over time, but the individual becomes bitter or learns how to learn of their pain, either way if we just let it go without dealing with things honestly, it will destroy us spiritually. If we can keep the focus on God & the accountability of our actions with ourselves & be the best we can be by looking to God, and always seeing what we can do to improve a situation with the tools we’ve been given in Christ & admit that we need work, we can rest assured that God has us covered. May we all be lifted together in Christ and may we be at peace & know that nothing is too big for God to handle & He’s got us all in His hands. (Ephesians‬ ‭4:20-24‬ ‭NKJV‬‬) “But you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.”

You can’t be bold in Christ, when Satan has you questioning your own life. Not all of us come to Christ to obtain things in this world, nor do we come to Christ to fit in this world when we’ve felt like an outcast, misfit & that we don’t belong here, because we belong to God. (I Peter‬ ‭2:9-10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬) But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.” We have found our true identity in Christ and learn to live a life more pleasing to God and so much more fulfilling to our soul. And anger & hostility have no place in our hearts with the abundance of love we feel from God. If we were only looking to be better than what we came from, some of us wouldn’t need Christ to do that. But to go towards the direction that God has already been calling us when He separated us, is where we belong. God is the One orchestrating the moves of His people, calling us to be different & calling us His. We all come to Christ for different reasons and some will believe in Him and some will be followers of Him. There is a difference. Unless we are willing to bear our cross daily & surrender to Christ daily, we are not truly going to understand someone who is. But in no means may we question a person living for Christ when it’s His power within us, but to take a step back & point back to ourselves & say what do I need to do in my life to be more in line with what God has called for us to do in this life. Most of the time it’s us moving out of the way and understanding where our strength comes from & remaining humble. We must know that we have purpose & that life is more than what we drive, what kind of house we live in, whether we own or rent, have addictive behaviors or love to look down on others, found a trade or went to the top college, it doesn’t matter to God if our heart is far from Him, we cannot satisfy God with things. We can talk about Him or not, attend church or not, if we have not turned to God, and if we have not surrendered to Christ, we are not going to stand out in this world boldly proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ, so we need to stop walking around grumbling at what we see. We must seek God on a daily basis; it doesn’t mean that we feel that we have lost God, but rather it is condescending when people don’t get what God is about & speak that way. We are to seek God diligently. (Hebrews‬ ‭11:6‬ NKJV) But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” People for sure come to Christ with different motives, and plenty with brokenness that come to Christ, and those who live by the spirit become pure to God as our sins are cleansed by the blood of Christ, and only God can do the impossible. However many too will be led astray, especially with the many false preachers of today. Many are still moving with this world & people get impressed by the following they may have, or some words that click within, but measure it up to the Word of God & we see the deceit. We all know that those true followers of Christ will be the minority. And when we think of the life that Christ had, we know that we too will be rejected, but look where Jesus is & just think where we will be with Him. No one or nothing can fill that void that our soul is longing for, even if we don’t realize it, Jesus is who we need. May we all be at peace & stand hopeful in Christ & follow after Him. (Romans‬ ‭8:36-39 ‭NKJV‬‬) “As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

(Ezekiel‬ ‭36:26‬ ‭NKJV)‬‬ “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” We must remember that we don’t have to try so hard with Christ in our lives to model after, to seek after & to give us the strength to believe what God has prepared for us. By surrendering to Christ, we are given a new heart. A new heart that has been renewed by the Spirit and grace of God. A new heart which give us a new will, with new desires & new purposes. We are no longer the people that we once were while saturated in our sin, but the old man has passed away, and now we have been given a new heart to love and to do the will of God. It is natural, while we were trapped in sin for our heart to be hardened. The hardening of the heart is natural to man who are after the flesh. The hardness of the heart cannot be removed by ourselves or by ministers of the Word, but only through Christ. Many people speak of love in this world, but the moment someone disagrees with them, they try to be hurtful, and that is not love. We cannot argue the truth in the Bible. We all need to learn & grow in Christ in order to fully have a relationship with God & to understand His Word. We cannot twist scripture around to please our emotions because we cannot handle what is written. When we keep looking to Christ, He keeps us from veering off the narrow path. It’s not always easy to digest what we read, but it’s refreshing to know that we have the One True God that loves us enough to correct us and show us the way to live according to His Word, not what feels good. But the more we gain an understanding the more we can see the good in all things. (II Corinthians‬ ‭6:17-18‬ ‭NKJV) “Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.” “I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the LORD Almighty.”’ Many people are falling into depression. Don’t we think that the truth found in God’s Word can lift one’s spirit. The truth is what sets us free; not saying what feels good that tickles many ears, but through truth we learn to grow into a relationship with Christ that renews our soul completely. If we are to be experiencing the kind of love that no longer has us looking to what is pleasing to our flesh, we are experiencing the love that God has intended for all of us. But He knows that not all will come to Him. And many of us will have our struggles and battles, and this is why it’s crucial that we surrender our will daily and recognize that we need a new heart & renewal of our minds. We are not to be held captive from the past, but we are to move forward together in Christ doing our part to encourage one another to be who God created us to be knowing that what applies for me, applies for you. And what God has for you, He has for me. Let us turn to Him. Let us pray! Let us be more about pleasing God and deny ourselves. (II Corinthians‬ ‭7:1‬ ‭NKJV)‬‬ “Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”

(I John‬ ‭4:17-18‬ ‭NKJV) ‬‬“Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.” Love & truth go together! Let’s not forget how people tripped over themselves on Thursday with love & go deeper in it today. We don’t need a day to declare love when the day on a deeper spiritual level totally misrepresents anything we stand for as true followers of Christ. Love is what we all need & love is what we have been called to do from God & by God! Love goes deeper than any material thing or what money can buy. Love never gives up. Love is action and should be felt within so that it can overflow into the lives of those around us on a REAL level. Love is not hidden. Love is forgiving our Brothers & Sisters over & over again. Love is gentle. Love is loyalty. Love is selfless. Love is truth. Love is strength. Love is honor. Love is protection. Love is not to be thrown around or like a light switch that just gets turned off. Love is deep & penetrating to our soul. Love is unity. Love is imperfections & flaws. Love doesn’t discriminate. Love goes beyond words. Love rights our wrongs. Love is unconditional. Love wipes out anger.  How we love is important. Love and truth are what we need to thrive and to stay on the right path, when those things fail, we suffer inside and the cycles continue as many veer off the path of righteousness. Without love, we have nothing!! “But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.” (Colossians‬ ‭3:14‬ ‭NKJV) To grow colder & bitter as we get older is the plan to defeat us, but God’s plans are way bigger & He is love and has created us in His own image. Drawing closer to God and relying on the strength found in Christ to love & to forgive heals us & makes us better able to receive & give love. We become who God created us to be. The way we treat others has everything to do with how we truly think of God. We cannot say that we love God & have a relationship with Him, without accepting Christ & loving one another. He can hear us & is for us, but we do get in His way when we choose to do opposite from who He is. We will fall short in this life, but we are not defeated in Christ. Many will speak of His name, but have turned many off by the lack of love in their hearts for others. And yes it’s absolutely facts that if we cannot love & forgive others, God will not forgive us. We have no right to be unforgiven. When true love of God is felt within us, we can forgive others. Forgiveness releases us and makes a complete difference in our hearts so that many can see our light shine brightly for the Lord! We are called to be a light and it begins with the love of God & Jesus who is the light of the world. We cannot only show love when we get our way or when things are done the way we want them done. God is showing us something different. Love is not found in and cannot be defined by the world, but through Christ all things are made new and His love cannot be contained any longer. Love perseveres! Before we can see more love, we must be more love. Let love be contagious! We don’t need to wait for the day to be declared or a big announcement on social media. We are walking billboards for the Lord! Represent!! Much love to all of you! Love conquers all because He conquered death & rose on the third day & He will return again soon. Thank you Jesus! (‭‭I Peter‬ ‭4:8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬) ‘“And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”’
Live, Love & pray unafraid & unashamed! Many Blessings to you my Brothers & Sisters!

(‭‭I Corinthians‬ ‭13:1-7 ‭NKJV‬‬) “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” Love is expressed more deeply every single day of the year & it’s more than the candy & flowers, but love is sacrifice & patience. Love is forgiveness, Love is not hurtful and full of games, but love is real & from the heart & anybody giving of themselves should never feel like a fool or naive for loving the way Jesus teaches us to love. Anyone playing with another’s persons heart will have to answer to God. For all married, I’m praying that your marriage is filled with God’s promises for your lives together knowing that you are joined together to fulfill what God has set out for the two of you to do. And for those of us single folks, keep seeking more of God & be thankful that He is preparing you & setting you aside for greater things to come. Just keep in mind that God knows better about what is right for us and if He has someone for us we will know them by their fruit. (John‬ ‭3:16‬ ‭NKJV)‬‬ “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” God’s love is like no other…. His love is unconditional never ends!!

May we be mindful of all the traps in this world. Don’t get caught up with nostalgia because there is definitely a bigger plan of deception at the root of what appears to be childhood memories & different periods throughout our lives that stand out to make us feel good when we think about them. If we could see what we contribute to & what we are really being a part of, it would blow people’s minds. But many are blinded by the many things taking place around us. It gets harder to even participate in many things, such as holidays that get acknowledged, but I would rather not participate in them. Especially being all in for God & with a lot more wisdom comes a whole lot of understanding enough to want to live differently because I trust God only. And I know that people trying to destroy God’s children will be going after our minds and getting us caught up in this world, so that knowledge that we are taught from this world & contained in the books written by those using mind control & running Hollywood amongst major corporations, etc. playing on emotions all through what they want to create in order for control. We learn right there from the Word of God how to overcome it all through Christ as God places us on a whole other path towards righteousness. Basically we are in our own lane when we are rolling with Jesus. Many times I get to this point & I look to my left & then to my right & there are only a few that stand with me. It can be discouraging, but then I remember my purpose. For all the things that can be stacked up against us, God does His most amazing work. Moving in a direction against the norm is not easy & not something that we try to do, but it happens the more we see that we can trust God by stepping out in faith and following God to see that for every problem there is a solution through Christ. There are times in each of our lives when God has given us a way out or is showing us another way, but we hesitate through our lack of trust and faith in what God can and will do because we are let down often in life by others or ways that we’ve followed that have failed. Once we realize that we need to surrender all of ourselves and areas of our lives to God, that much easier trusting God becomes because we know that He is in control & we see Him show up more and more. But when we are set to accomplish things on our own looking to God slightly for direction as we continue to slide our way back in the driver seat for comfortability, which ultimately leads us on the path to destruction because it’s a much wider and accessible path as long as we are still a part of this world, the less we get what God is doing. But the more we seek God, the more we see that we are being taken by God in another direction and onto more of an unfamiliar ground; and this is where our faith is met head on with only one way and that’s to trust God. Trusting God is not punishment, but it is preparation for our spirit so that our flesh learns to line up with God’s will for our lives. May we all continue to see our lives with God as a journey of learning and trusting the One who created each one of us & the One who is in control, and whom we should lean on at all times. (Proverbs‬ ‭3:5-8‬ ‭NKJV)‬‬ Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones.”

Live, Love & pray unafraid & unashamed! Many Blessings to you!

I’m back! Sometimes we all just need to take a step back & take some time away from what we do from day to day & pray for more understanding & another approach. Continually it’s important to  make sure that we are listening to God and following what He wants from us. We need to look at life from another perspective to gain more of an understanding of God’s Word. All these things that take place daily & the hardships & struggles that we face are needed to get us to a place with God where we trust in Him and our faith is in Him wholeheartedly. There are many things pulling at us for our attention & there are many things that appear innocent that are not in line with God’s Word. Many of us are following the traditions of man and continually go through life just repeating history. There are many things exposed and more out in the open, yet it still remains a mystery when looking on how to proceed with the many problems we face in this world without recognizing our need for God, and by recognizing that our solutions come from Christ. There are many things that we try to accomplish in our own strength, and it keeps us in this mentality that we must at some point know how to do this on our own, by it’s contrary to God’s Word, we can only accomplish the things at hand through our strength found in Christ and by continually looking to God so that He can prepare us for what’s ahead, and so that He gets all the glory in our lives. We can clearly & continually see a pattern from the beginning of time of our desperate need for God, and the importance of our obedience to Him and more of an urgency to turn away from sin & from following the patterns of this world while trying to find God’s blessing, instead of following the truth & seeing God’s blessings in our lives when we look to His Son, and through His grace & mercy which has been given to us for the chance to be with Him, and the availability of His Word & our knowledge of Him through Christ and the wisdom that comes from God. We are less in tune with God when we are chasing the things of this world and making our life decisions based on finances & what we feel is good. God will get His way, whether we are moving in the direction that God is taking us by seeking more of Him, or if we choose to take the harder route as God continues to call us to get us in line with His will for our lives by disrupting different areas of our lives. Let us not be too stubborn that we miss what God is trying to show us by looking at the world for spiritual interpretations when we need to be in God’s Word & in prayer. We must face the realization that this world is moving in the opposite direction of where God is taking us, but everything we see doesn’t take God by surprise because He is in control at all times. Let us be reminded of this and feel the peace, comfort, hope & love of Christ and share it with others. Many will find it difficult to follow the path that God has laid out before us by trying to make sense of what God wants from us compared to the things taking place in this world. It’s easy to get caught up in the things of this world, but we must stay in tune with the things pertaining to God. God’s Word is very clear of our need for our Savior & our need for drawing closer to God and not turning away because of our carnal desires, but may we all be led spiritually & be paying attention so that we can overcome the spiritual battles in our lives knowing that we have the victory in Christ, and that as long as we keep our eyes on God and march to the beat of a different drum, we will not be overthrown by evil, but God is preparing a way & protecting His people; may we have faith in God over the things of this world. May we use the grace given to us by God as the opportunity to do what’s right, and grow deeper in our relationship with Him and slowly let go of our dependency of this world knowing we don’t want to be controlled by Satan, but we must live knowing that our freedom is found in Christ and God has overcome this world. (Hebrews‬ ‭13:5-6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬) Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say: “The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”

Live, Love & pray unafraid & unashamed! Many Blessings to you!
