His love#amazing

God: gave us so much love and to love…

1 John 4:19 (KJV) “We love him, because he first loved us”.

Sometimes when you fall in love with someone it can be difficult to say the “l” word; you get to thinking, maybe it won’t be return or maybe they might laugh at you or maybe even ridicule you.

So you just endure in silence.

Not so with Jesus; His love is already release and sounding through the ages and even now it is a warm rush throughout your system.

His love is evident and you just know it’s available and already covering your life. His love#amazing.

Direction from an unusual source….

God: dispatched an angel….

Hebrews 13:2 (KJV) “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.”

I get to wondering at times, how many times it has happened and I never did pay attention, especially when it’s been right before my eyes. I have read the books on angels and at some point I have heard preachers speaking on the benefits of being generous to strangers in need of help because it just might prove to be an angel.

I was driving through a city where I live once after a funeral to drop off visitors to the service and I went through a side street and hear the sirens behind me after turning the corner. The cops indicated I had ran a red light; of course it was hidden behind some overhanging branches. I literally came out of my car and walked the street to see how I could have missed it. I paid the enormous ticket, but I was traumatized with the experience.

I promised myself I wouldn’t be going into that city anytime in the future. A few years later, I had to go to a mandatory career function and unknowingly, my journey took me beyond that part of the city. Oops, I had to go through that city to get back home. I am challenged finding directions at the most inopportune times, so on returning, I found myself parked on a hill outside a Catholic church, at a red light, shaking as I couldn’t find my way (before GPS).

A brand new car came and parked at a traffic light right beside me; a fresh faced, young lady, was driving and was looking in the rear view mirror, fixing her hair and touching her face. She was very intriguing. She looked over at me and asked if I needed help: just so.

I told her I was trying to pick up I295; she smiled and said, follow me, then took off driving downhill. I took off behind her and it was a winding long drive, she always managed to drive through the lights before they turned red and I was right behind her. Suddenly in my mind, I was thought, where is she taking me.

As soon as the thought came to my mind, she stopped and I pulled up next to her, she smile and told me not to be afraid; at this point, it was weird. I asked myself after the fact, how she was able to know what I was thinking.

We drove for another five minutes, then she stopped again and pointed to a hanging sign saying, i295 South; I was so happy to see the landmark.

Ok, this is the weird part, on both sides of the road we were traveling at this point, there were bulwarks with no side roads for turning. I drove off and looked in my rear view mirror to see where she was going and the car was gone, just disappeared in a split second.

I knew that God had sent divine assistance to guide me out of that city in my fear and disorientation; I was happy to find my way, I was bewildered not to have known how to deal with the encounter. It was unusual. But to know that God has your back in all things is awe-inspiring.

Maybe you have met one and never knew.

Being well#eventhough…..

God: works it out somehow…

2 Kings 4:26 (KJV) “Run now, I pray thee, to meet her, and say unto her, Is it well with thee? is it well with thy husband? is it well with the child? And she answered, It is well.”

In life some things happen that causes us to literally groan through the process; words aren’t able to express the impact or the reaction and it is just a groaning moment.

Through it all, God has a plan and we aren’t able to be in sync with Him, because our trauma or situation has got a hold of our inner reins and that groan.

Be confident that God in all His mercies will manifest that plan in His time; He is an on time God for sure.

1+1=2 (nice)

God: encourages good company….

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (KJV) “Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”

Sometimes you hear folks complain about their spouses and it makes one think that maybe there was nothing good to ever come out of that relationship ever; but when folks come together you have to expect friction at times for there is going to be good and bad.

You can’t get away from it. But God is a good God for He gives us the opportunity to ask Him for help when you think it’s beyond mending or even when it gets so bad that it hurt.

He is helper; the invisible ingredient that brings about cure. Try adding Him to the mix.

Trusting yourself?SMH

God: trust always….

Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV) “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”

It is disconcerting at times when you speak with folks about a topic you might be a bit more knowledgeable than they are when the initial and second and third response is, “I Know”.

Difficult to have that conversation, yet through it all, the material might be beneficial so you persevere.

Yet, the good thing is that we know in part, and information sharing is also necessary for growth I believe; God however, is knowledge; He is wisdom and understanding lives within Him.

So if I had to trust in anything, it would be that God would bless me with His wisdom, knowledge and understanding to get through this checkered world we live in. That my friend is a sound plan.

It gets His attention….

God: is to be exalted….

Isaiah 25:1 (KJV) “O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth”.

When we try to build relationship with God, it can be quite tumultuous at times, especially when we pray and wonder if we are getting through, whether He is listening, if He will answer what we are requesting.

The questions can be many; but through it all we just want to get to know the Lord at a deeper level.

One manner which can get the Lord’s attention when we are at that stage is worship; magnifying and praising Him like there is no tomorrow, with no hidden agenda and no expectation of anything in return. Loving on Him with respect and adoration.

And most of all, do it consistently. See heaven stand up and take notice of you.

Moving that mountain

God: already spoke the command…

Mark 11_22-24 KJV) “And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 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. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”

In walking through life we have to have to gain some new perspective on how to get pass the difficult stages that is a must as we move from point A to B; if when we come face to face to obstacles that seems to be very large, we faint and waiver in dealing with them, that is like taking a step backwards.

However, if we come up with a strategy for dealing with the issues as God gives us the grace, that is a motivator to move unto the the next battle with confidence that with God at your side, you can and will destroy any storm.

Jesus told us, when we face those mountains, speaking to them with the utterance and authority that He gave unto us will move them out of the way. Our faith coupled with God’s grace get so much accomplished.

Let God’s way be out direction in this life.
