Breaking the Cycles of Insecurity

Many people have feelings of insecurity about themselves because they can’t accept themselves for who they are. So they’ll rely on people to please them and accept them. A person or group may demostrate this through a strong attachment to their mate, child or children, and sometimes through a family member or a friend. These kind of bindings can invite a demonic spirit because the person is looking to another human being for fulfillment instead of looking to God. There are gaps in our lives that were not meant for another human to fulfill; therefore, broken relationships form. It can even form into a demonic cycle of break ups to where the receiver of the insecure individual starts to be controlled and manipulated. The only way to be delivered and freed is through the truth. That person or group of indiviuals has a sin problem that has yet to be addressed. And whoever invites someone with unaddressed or unrepentant sin also invites their idols and demon(s). Insecurities can be addressed and kept under control or unaddressed and take up unnecessary time in another person’s life. It is one thing to feel insecure and deal with it, than to allow it to go unaddressed and cause problems in our relationships and how we see ourselves. At some point in life we have to address what we rather not. Instead of sweeping it under the rug; hidden, address it. Address the lies, address the anger, address the resentment and give yourself time to heal and recover. Wash away the lies of what the mirror says, an insult says, and adopt what Jesus says. Who did He say you are? You are fearfully and wonderfully made(Psalm 139:14). You are God’s redeemed and his love story. The next time you are having one of those days were your weight is off, or you feel too tall or too short, or your make up is not doing the job ask God what significance your height, weight, and imperfections play in your purpose. God uses are imperfections for his glorious Will for our lives. Don’t hide, Shine. You are made in the image of the creator of the universe (Genesis 1:27).

When You’re in the Will of God

How did i get here. Sometimes God’s Will is not the easiest. And sometimes He doesn’t allow the next step to be seen or even known, he just guide you to it. It’s a different pace and a different space when God is doing the leading. It’s in a sense where you’re not comfortable in any land except the land he calls you too. And while comfort levels can change, being in the land will be well with you. Is it easy? No. Is it scary? Yes. Because as human beings we want to know the future. In this season of being the spirit of truth is the future; and without it we perish. It’s an unfamiliar place and space. I’m safe in this place; It is the Lord who goes before me; and He has taken me and called me near to remain under his shadow. So therefore, He is my protector. Have you ever been uncovered? Or got to comfortable somewhere and didn’t prepare for what was coming? I find myself standing face to face with the most beautiful beginnings of my life, and although it is a glimpse; it is well with my soul. If this thing truly indeed is Christ centered, then i am exactly where i am suppose to be. Sometimes we may judge our circumstances based on how it looks or feels, but when God is in it; there is a peace that comes with the direction he guides your feet. I’m so elated to know i am stepping into the purpose i was created for. God did not allow my parents to conceive me for their purposes, but for His. Praise JESUS. I am extremely elated about what the LORD has brought me too. It is so amazing. Thank you for allowing me to share this testimony with you. May the good good Heavenly Father bless and order your steps in Jesus name.

Going Deeper

What does it mean to go deeper? Beyond the surface. Far beyond it. It’s the place where most of us would rather keep our hidden things hidden and our not yet dealt with issues buried. Why? Are we too lazy to deal with them or are we not ready to face the truth about ourselves? None of us are perfect nor have perfect realities. Some of our problems are rooted through our parents and families. Truth has no hidden agenda. I’ll repeat that. Truth has no hidden agenda. I have met people who are stuck in there broken places because they choose to be. The help is available to the individual, but the person chooses the way of the handicap when he or she is very well capable of doing better, being better, and doing away with foolishness. It’s easy to be a part of a group and to gather with the crowd. But it takes a courageous and smart person to stand out from the rest and confess the way of the Lord, the way of truth. How easy is it to have people with you, but the bold righteous person knows rather he or she stands alone or with another they will stand up come what may. Any person willing to stand up for another in truth and speak on behalf of another who is bullied or looked down on that man God himself will help and honor. And he will put to shame the unjust. The one’s who FEEL justified in their wrong doing. What has been your appetite? Are you self seeking? Going about getting your way, doing what you will and not caring about who you hurt or leave without because you want peace while the other person was in need. The Lord will repay you for your wickedness and for your wicked deeds. Be careful how you treat others and who you turn your back to because in doing so you are turning your back to God. It is He who teaches us to love one another and in doing so to be good to each other. If you are always looking to get something in return you have missed out on your own lesson and therefore will join the misery at heart.

Do good. Give with a cheerful heart. Love without limits. Forgive, but do not tolerate evil. Say no, and mean it because evil does not care and it doesn’t have a heart. It is cold. Keep yourselves around warm hearted people, and those who are loving, kind, and forgiving. It is good for you overall. Jesus advises us not to sit in the seat of the scornful and to keep our hearts pure. He is the wisest after all.

America, The LORD is Uncovering Your Hidden Places

How long do we have to pretend that there are only good people in the world and that we only are good? We have unaddressed sin, unaddressed behaviors, and unaddressed demonically influenced mindsets that need to be recovered in Jesus name. We cannot carry on like this America and think or even believe for a second that we are a great country. Where, how, why would we be? We are facing a identity crisis not just individuals, but our country. God is calling us out on who we say we are and showing us just how divided we are as a country. We have yet to agree on reopenings, healthcare, parenthood, family morals and practices, and the spiritual direction we are going in. This is insane for people to want to reopen our economy as if it is the cure to the madness in our society today. There are lives that are in jeopardy. We are forced to see the evil that we have ignored for far too long. Today the world can see just how real evil really is. It is no longer hidden, and you can no longer deny the truth. We must do more than use are spare time to stand up. Let the world be interrupted until you hear my people’s cry. It’s not faint; it’s screaming justice. What other way can God have our attention on a matter and show us that there is a problem unless he slows us down. Our leadership is in a crisis. They are standing up to make decisions about things that need heavenly intervention. Seriously. Who can close a door God opens, and who can open a door God shuts? We need to stop kidding ourselves as if everything is going back to normal after this pandemic. Look, there is another pandemic rising up out of the first one. I find it so unrealistic, but very real that people are promoting evil and doing more evil than good at a time where we are shut in. I find it dangerous in this time to be without Christ. These days, the last days that we are living in; the world needs Jesus. I will say it again: the world needs Jesus. Look at the evil rising up from an already worldwide global attack. One we cannot see, but only hear of and know by its symptoms. It is time for us to wake up and face the truth about ourselves and each other. We have a problem in America that has gone unaddressed for far too long. America is not great. America is in a crisis. And we are asking that the doors be reopened to a society that is so far divided that whichever side you rule in there is repercussion. Some people do not want to face the truth, so they’re in a hurry to return to work where they can close their eyes to the problem that’s been ignored for too long. This thing did not just rise up from a pandemic, it’s been happening. And we, all of us: Whites, Blacks, Asians, Mexicans, Indians, Pacific Islanders, every person should be disgusted, bothered, and moved to make a move in the direction of addressing the hidden evils of this world and its corrupt justice system. Enough is enough. People are being so blinded and shielded by evil that they don’t recognize it until it is out of control. Until it is happening to them. Well, here we are people. Does this thing need to go further before you realize change is required, evil is real, and there is a need for a savior- JESUS. We need more than prayer. Repentance is in order America. We have been blind for far too long. Stop sweeping our problems under the carpet and address them. Address them and correct them. We are not going back to what we are use to. This is a global shake down and shake up. Pay attention and do your part. STAND UP. Who has time to relax. THIS IS THE TIME TO STAND TOGETHER.

Guard Your Hearts

Cold people have cold hearts. They care about themselves and the kind of lifestyle they display. I cannot compete with a cold hearted person. I would much rather keep my heart warm and meek. It’s hard dealing with a person who does not know love, and these same people do not accept kindness well. They are used to drama, fear, chaos, confusion, lying, cycles, and soul ties that are not indeed good for the soul. These situations become more of a mess when children are involved. The child also becomes a part of the cycle. It is a sad thing to see; I pray you never have to as I have. To love a man who does not love himself is like being in a relationship with a soulless person. It is harmful. Everyone around him matters except you. It is painful and stressful. This can be a man or a woman. If you do not get out of such harsh conditions you find yourself becoming a replica of that person. It is scary, but you are able to get out and still save your heart from going dark. Sometimes you have to walk away or be pushed away; and believe me this type of person cannot take peace for too long. They must have some kind of chaos or they do not feel right. They are used to having some form of drama or confusion. Love to them is a mixture of pain and sorrow, mixed with some happy times, but they are never happy people. It is a temporary way of living. They are not able to manage healthy relationships. It’s too much for a heartless person to imagine. They are use to having it their way or no way. They are very controlling and hard to please. They are manipulators. I don’t mind the halfway mark or trying to reason with a person, but you cannot reason with a person who is not rational to begin with. It is easy to become mentally drained trying to please someone who changes like the wind. Nothing is set in stone with them, so you never really know what you are going to get. It’s best to be distance friends with these types of people. And it is good if they are not in your ear too often. Their way of life and how they see the world can be quite frightening. Why? Because they don’t think rationally like everyone else. Everything is about them. They view themselves as being superior to everyone else. Are they wrong or us? No one is higher than another, even if we hold a higher position in this life. Keep your hearts warm and don’t hold a grudge. Forgive quickly and move on. Cold people with cold hearts are not a project they are in need of emotional, mental, and spiritual health. These kinds of people can look up to par or seem as though they have it all together on the outside, but they are an emotional diaster on the inside. You can sometimes tell by the kind of relationships they have. They are usually like a roller coast ride up and down or display on and off cycles. Protect yourself because they are big deceivers. Guide them to get the help that they need before becoming emotionally involved.

When You Are Required to Wait

There are moments in life where we are required to wait. Time belongs to God. Purpose is His. And our lives are suppose to be a love story for Christ. If you are here asking yourself what life is really all about, it is about JESUS. You are here because he allowed your conception to take place in your Mother’s womb for his glory; for his purpose. Purpose is not what most people believe it to be. Many of us are waiting for some big miracle to happen like the sky opening and raining millions of dollars or a big pot of gold poured down on us and now we are happy. Money, gold, silver, luxury does not equal happy. Knowing your purpose and pursing it while you still have breath in your lungs is. Imagine having everything, but not being able to make sense of anything. Now imagine this: Your purpose, you know it and it means everything to you. And guess what? Life makes sense. And ever thing that did not matter before matters now. You have been equipped with everything you need to fulfill your purpose. It is in you and God will send the rest to you. He will also require you to do the work that has been given to you. Never take time for granted. Never believe time to be wasteful in anyone’s life. You do not know their story. God can turn a drunk into a millionaire and a millionaire into a broke drunk. He is very good at role reversals. If you need a lesson there is the Master Teacher with the number one lesson plan to show you why it is not up to you, me, or any person to dictate someone else’s story. Mine your household and pray for your neighbor. There are specific things God ask of us while we are in a season of waiting. Do you know what that is? I do, remain calm, remain prayerful, and trust the Lord in your season of waiting. One last thing, but not the only thing don’t forget to praise. Praise is one of the most powerful effective weapons given to a believer. The Word is always active. We need to be active too.

There is only one King sitting on the right hand of God- JESUS CHRIST.

Connecting the Dots

I hear so many stories of black lives lost, cop shootings, hate crimes, black on black, whites vs. blacks, and i just have this to say. How can we as african americans, the black community ask for justice for a white man killing a black man when we allow so many killings to take place in our own african american communities? So many times you hear and see live videos all across social media networks and live news broadcasts filled with videos of a black man shooting and killing another black man, and most of the time we either know the shooter or the victim, but we won’t unify and stand together and say enough is enough in our own neighborhoods. In order to make our people strong enough and make a statement to the white supremacist or any other racial profiling groups or individuals to say we won’t tolerate innocents being killed anywhere, we must first bring an end to the senseless murders in our own communities. It is insane. If we want God to give justice where justice is due, then start turning the murderers in your own neighborhoods in and stop putting up with it. All these bad behaviors are coming from some of our very own family members, but instead of confronting this evil we tolerate it. Well, not me. And we need to say not us. And not our community. There is not enough people standing up in there communities, and they are wondering why in those areas crime is high. We cannot rely on the government to parent our children. Parents must parent their sons and daughters the right way or you get exactly what we have a world of demonized wasteful minds and cold hearts. We must ask God what is going on and ask him for truth in a matter before assuming we know because someone posted a video or a picture. Yes, the young man was killed in cold blood and he may fit the skin tone of most who are, but what about the constant same skin tone killings we see in our own neighborhoods or underprivileged areas where it is just happening and nothing is being done about it. It is not because police are not doing enough; the people didn’t stand up enough, the parents didn’t parent enough, the church didn’t rise enough. We are each others keeper before it reaches the justice system; however the law is for the lawless. We have failed each other when we don’t do what we are suppose to do. A lot of people would like to blame rappers and artist and the president for allowing guns, but if you train up a child in the way that he should go, he will not depart from it. That’s biblical- Proverbs 22:6. Some of us think these trying times we are facing are from some natural source, and maybe, but there is a God- Jesus who oversees earth. If we’re not pleased, then we can assume neither is He. If you do not teach your child the truth then he or she will fall for anything. How can anyone teach a child the truth unless he himself knows the truth.

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6

Praise Report!

Our God has been so good. He has been providing and taking good care of me and proving that he is able to supply my every need. I am so grateful to know that in a crisis He is still God and still Good. I have not gone hungry, i have not been without shelter, i have clean running water, i have clean clothes and access to a laundromat and resources. I just want to say that i was laid off during this pandemic, but i have not stopped giving to the church. The pastor told us to keep on giving and i stepped out on faith and have been giving from my savings account. My savings account has gotten low, but that’s ok because i am expecting the Lord, our God to fill it up again, so i can keep on giving in JESUS name. Praise the LORD!

Don’t ever be afraid to take a stand for God. It is far more rewarding to take a stand for Christ, then to deny him and his goodness in your life. It is worth the fight. Keep fighting and watch how God open up doors that no man can shut. Favor isn’t fair, but it is good, and it comes from God. I will boast about what he has done and what he continues to do for me and i will delight in the place that God has provided for my shelter for such a time as this. Praise the LORD!

Pray It Out/Talk It Out with God

Christians are not to use the world way of living nor the world way of operating as followers of Christ. Imitating the world or trying to have a little bit of the world in our walk with God will lead to God’s disapproval and judgement. We ought to stay in step with God through daily fellowship by the reading of His holy Word, prayer, listening to the Holy Spirit, and living an acceptable holy life unto the Lord. Because God still speaks to man either through another being, his spirit- the Holy Spirit, dream, vision, or directly; we must listen and be prepared to follow his command. We are not to argue with the Holy Spirit. We are always in the presence of God, as the world itself was created for God, by God. Jesus is Lord and Savior of Mankind. That promise was given at the beginning before time. If God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life then we have nothing to fear on this side or the other side because Christ rules on both sides. If the Lord says be still, and know that i am God. Then we must take heed to the voice and the word of the living God who has the answer and resolve to everything. His timing is not our timing, and God is always on time, everytime. Be still, and trust Him.

Psalm 46:10

John 3:16

Psalm 90

Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. You return man to dust and say, “Return, O children of man!” For a thousand years in your sight are but as yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night. You sweep them away as with a flood; they are like a dream, like grass that is renewed in the morning: in the morning it flourishes and is renewed; in the evening it fades and withers. For we are brought to an end by your anger; by your wrath we are dismayed. You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your presence. For all our days pass away under your wrath; we bring our years to an end like a sigh. The years of our life are seventy, or even by reason of strength eighty; yet their span is but toil and trouble; they are soon gone, and we fly away. Who considers the power of your anger, and your wrath according to the fear of you? So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. Return, O Lord ! How long? Have pity on your servants! Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, and for as many years as we have seen evil. Let your work be shown to your servants, and your glorious power to their children. Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands! Psalm 90:1‭-‬17 ESV
