Lord, you DESERVE all of my praise……. Over and Over and Over and Over and Over…….
Prayer changes things……. BUT so does MUSIC FOR ME….. There is nothing that can compare to hearing a God ordained song that changes your WHOLE situation (s)……. Not feeling down but want to remind MYSELF and others that when you think that things are “that bad” go grab a song and just lay there …..
wait for it – ……..wait for it…wait for it….and just let the tears rolls and your heart become filled because God will show up
Whew – singing music and hymnals unto the God that is able to keep me from falling and present me and you faultless…..
Now after singing that song you must know NOW for sure that you have the V – I – C- T- O -R -Y……..
NOW…… if you believe in ” running and shouting”……. ( because I surely do ) >>>>here you go!
Charismatic : Only 1 Hands are already in the air.
Pentecostal : 10 One to change the bulb, and nine to pray against the spirit of darkness.
Presbyterians : None Lights will go on and off at predestined times.
Roman Catholic : None Candles only.
Baptists : At least 15.
One to change the light bulb, and three committees to approve the change and decide who brings the Potato salad and fried chicken .
Mormons : 5 One man to change the bulb, and four wives to tell him how to do it.
Unitarians : We choose not to make a statement either in favor of or against the need for a light bulb. However, if in your own journey you have found that light bulbs work for you, you are invited to write a poem or compose a modern dance about your light bulb for the next Sunday service, in which we will explore a number of light bulb traditions, including incandescent, fluorescent, 3-way, long-life and tinted, all of which are equally valid paths to luminescence.
Methodists : Undetermined
Whether your light is bright, dull, or completely out, you are loved. You can be a light bulb, turnip bulb, or tulip bulb. Bring a bulb of your choice to the Sunday lighting service and a covered dish to pass.
Lutherans: None Lutherans don’t believe in change.
Amish : What’s a light bulb??
I need to visit Japan and fellowship with them because they OBVIOUSLY do not see “color ” when it comes to CHRIST!
I was thinking of when I was being honored at a Banquet and when I realized that my son was getting an award as well – You know I was mushy and teary eyed!! About 5 years ago – I started doing street ministry but to the Homeless population called The Coleman Cares Winter Project and I went out from October until April giving out clothes, coats, socks, hot beverages and food.
This was done by MY OWN money as well as my son’s little piggy bank ( by his choice – which touched my heart as well ) Nonetheless, my son was also honored since he was in the trenches with me! This photo was taken when my NOW 11 year old son was about 6 years old.
The Lord’s work has its own kind of reward that does not always come / show up in the FORM of currency……God is good.
All I can do is say WHY??? This is soo sad, I mean seriously – The station called Oxygen is about to release this show that CLEARLY DISPLAYS how a great deal of men and women in ministry IS FAILING…………. ugggghhh – I pray that it gets cancelled.
Just recall that back to your memory as you take 1 step forward into your destiny and the enemy is there day after day, time after time trying to set traps up for you. When the road(s) get tough, because they WILL, just praise God. The more that you say Yes Lord!, the more strength God will give you to endure. The More You Bless God, The More God Blesses You!
No matter how big or how small the problem is, God can fix it. There is nothing that God cannot heal! Be encouraged on today and know that this is only for a season. Don’t complain about what YOU may allow to happen in your life. You are in control of your own destiny. It is up to you, to PUSH your way through the hard struggles.
What exactly are you made of? Get to the House of The Lord and you will soon find out. Make sure that you have people in your corner who can genuinely be there for you in your time (s) of need and maintain a few good accountability partners.
You know how we do…. we go through and want to leave the church! We blame the church, the saints and of course God! Look in the mirror sometimes and you will get the answer that you have searched for…… I am not saying that walking with Christ is a bed of roses! However, Faith makes things POSSIBLE, not EASY!
You may say that you desire to have your life sitting easy and pretty, but the truth of the matter is, you don’t! We all like a “good fight.”
So for another year that The Lord has kept you and brought you through to see 2013, Make a Convenant to stop complaining!
