The “A” Train Experience

March 1, 2013

Usually, when I’m in transit and if there is a seat or whether I’m standing I would meditate on the goodness of Jesus first.  Especially, if I haven’t already said Lord I thank you from the rising of the sun and the laying down last night how you kept your Angels watch over me as I slept and slumber.   You sir or madam can believe it My God will get the honor and the glory due him from me at that very hour or during the course of the day. I do wait for the Holy Ghost to speak (this is my expectation); sometimes I receive immediately but in all honesty He will speak throughout the course of the day just to remind me that God our Father is in control.

Proverbs 19:21 – Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.

Romans 8:28- And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose

Isaiah 45:6-7 – That people may know, from the rising of the sun and from the west, that there is none besides me; I am the Lord, and there is no other.  I form light and create darkness, I make well-being and create calamity, I am the Lord, who does all these things.

Matthew 19:26 – But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible

Let me back up….. After taking care of my chores I began making myself down stairs and put my focus on the plan for me and my family the 4 page doc that hits you immediately on the dining room table. The document merely states my thoughts on how God is getting ready to use me for his Kingdom.  I’m praying to God that He wanted me to include my family…….As it seems only one member read it.  My frustration took hold of me and I yell to the two family members who I thought may not have read it or so it seems because they did not respond when I open (my big mouth) “I would advise that you read this” in sort of tribunal way ~ because right after I said it in my mind said there will be serious consequences this weekend.

Going out the door I ponder on what transpired and said I shouldn’t handled it that way and began to pray.  I didn’t even say Be Blessed; have Blessed Day; Keep your eyes and ears open to His Voice none of  the encouraging words that should have been spoken when leaving or better yet “I LOVE YOU” Even my dog didn’t want to say anything to me.

Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Matthew 6:34 – Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself.  Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Psalm 22:28 – For kingship belongs to the Lord, and He rules over the nations.

Joshua 1:9 – Have I not commanded you” Be strong and courageous.  Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you”.

Proverbs 16:4 – The Lord has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble.

My God;   I Walked down further down the street to catch the bus which I could see as I came near to end of the next block I whispered to God please let the bus be there when I cross the street to catch the bus behold the bus was waiting for me and smile because I knew the driver didn’t see me because I was cross the street before I got to the corner when the bus turned on to the bus stop.  A nice gentleman had turn his head to remind that God heard my prayer and he told the bus driver to wait and stepped back as I hurriedly got me on the bus thanking him at the same time.  (God hears us in our thoughts)

James 4:6 – But he gives more grace.  Therefore it says. “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.

Ephesians 2:8-9 – For by grace you have been saved through faith.  And this not your own doing; it is the give of God, not a result of work, so that one may boast.

Luke14:18-11 – When you are invited by someone to a wedding feast, do not sit down in a place of honor, lest someone more distinguished than you be invited by him, and he who invited you both will come and say to you, ‘Give your place to this person,’ and then you will begin with shame to take the lowest place. But when you are invited, go and sit in the lowest place, so that when your host comes he may say to you, ‘Friend, move up higher.’ Then you will be honored in the presence of all who sit at table with you. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

Proverbs 16:18-19 – Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall. It is better to be of a lowly spirit with the poor than to divide the spoil with the proud.

Romans 12:10 – Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor

1John 1:8 – If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.

Prayer:  Father I thank you for your traveling mercies; I thank you that you remind me of the things that I need to change within myself.  I thank you when I think that I’m all of that you bring me down and teach me to humble myself in so many ways and I love you for that.  Bless my family and those that I thought about even now.  Keep them safe from harm and danger and bless them in areas that need to felt and heard that only you can handle.  Father I hear you loud and clear give me the strength to go forth in Jesus Name I pray.  AMEN

Meet me at planting seed ministry; looking for God’s remnant!

 

Devotional : What God shared with me

This week the Holy Spirit gave me a word LEAVAN in which I had done some research from an earlier study a couple of years go.  It came so clear to me as well as it compel for me to add this to my post. (How wild is this) this site from bibletools. org is great study tool.  Ref: bibletoolsorg. says: Throughout the New Testament, God uses leaven as a symbol of sin. Jesus warns, “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy” (Luke 12:1). In discussing the danger of sin spreading, Paul uses the phrase “a little leaven leavens the whole lump” on two separate occasions (I Corinthians 5:6; Galatians 5:9).   There are people in the world that purposely think they are doing the will of God by whispering in one ear of another person.  They are known as gossipers.  As my daughter would say please take a seat in fact take several seats. It means to go sit down somewhere.  I like to add and say “Go seek God”

Your Sister in Christ!

Hang in there help is on the way

Hebrews 13:8 ESV

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Malachi 3:6 ESV

“For I the Lord do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed.

Numbers 23:19 ESV

God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?

Hebrews 6:18 ESV

So that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us.

If you’re like me sometimes we get in spot that we want to scream but I’ll start with these four for encouragement for you as the Holy Spirit encourage me to encourage myself.  https://youtu.be/JbEaftzaFWA

Wow ~ God showed me how to take control

There are so many scenarios in the scripture that we can take away from when a person loses it.  I love God ‘s wisdom when He makes us desperate for him.  All I knew is that I was not at a good place when I realize it was Him who put me there.  I’m not sure, or I don’t think on the onset I was thinking that I was desperate for his intervention or words couldn’t explained as it seemed I was angry and then relive going over this in mind.  Until my mind was told by God to stop here is the solution.  God took me there so I could submit to him and thank God. Folks I got desperate to hate that feeling of letting people bring me to place where God doesn’t want me to go.   I can testify after that desperation joy began to fill my heart. I refused to let that unwanted feeling take control of my thoughts of hate.  God made me desperate for Him.  I began to pray for the person knowing that it wasn’t their own actions but it was my prayer to pray  Ephesians 6:12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.  (New Living Translation)  One of my favorite preachers of all times John Piper (Desiring God website  shared an article by one of the co-founders)  by Jon Bloom in which he said “And it’s the lack of a sense of desperation for God that is so deadly. If we don’t feel desperate for God, we don’t tend to cry out to him. Love for this present world sets in subtly, like a spiritual leprosy, damaging spiritual nerve endings so that we don’t feel the erosion and decay happening until it’s too late”  Just as I received this revelation my sister-in law telephone me singing and rejoicing that she received a good report from the Dr. that they no longer see any trace of the cancer that was previously shown on the x-ray.  I call to pray for her two nights ago as I was compel to call her and anyone that knows me when I hear God I do. I fast and prayed for two days. We thank God rejoicing and shouting of the goodness of the LORD and we began testifying of God ‘s grace and mercy.  I felt blessed that God used that moment while we were in prayer to remind us that prayer works.  Thank you Holy Spirit for bringing us together and now showing us both our ministry.  I love you Jesus and Thank you!

 

Hey; can’t sleep ~ Ponder on this

The bible speaks in John 1:1; “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”  Thank you for reading this blog as I hope that you will join me in this journey which I find that no matter where you are there is always a beginning.

Part 2; manifest this April of 2016.  I had to digress to where I am for a moment just to see where I am. The first paragraph was sitting in my draft since January 2016.   I thank God as always for pulling me to where he wants me even though I seemed to be pulling me up to where I think I should be.  The God that we serve is not a God like us we have a finite mind whereas; He is infinite.  If  we can truly grasp that God is not like men; seriously we can’t think of God as we would ourselves but unfortunately this is what we do.  For those who know this walk that we are walking it’s so easy to think that what we do seems so right but I’m sorry there is something in the inside that just doesn’t sit right in your spirit no matter how right you may think it seems.  I mean at some point (sometimes its quick and sometimes not) but there should be something in you that tells you that it’s not right. For me I think when Jesus said that if we have the faith the size of a mustard seed we can move mountains.  My new revelation for the last three to five years and growing is that I’m seriously going in deep with the word God.  Now I’m looking at the word Mustard and Seed.  The taste of mustard can be bitter and yet delicious when you combined it with some other dishes; but more importantly I’m looking at the word seed; (don’t ask how I’m connecting these two words) but you would know by now that I try to flow with the Holy Ghost in what He gives me) One could argue that when Jesus mentioned that the seed was the smallest seed on the earth; we have some skeptics say that the mustard seed wasn’t the smallest seed..  but when we read and the study the bible we have to go deeper by searching, reading, listening connecting with  (learned men and women who study this word daily) KJV 2Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.  First Jesus knew exactly what and who he was addressing.  During that region the mustard seed was the smallest seed. Since the Jews were very familiar with the mustard seed, Jesus referred to what they could understand and appreciate. In their world, where they lived, planted, and harvested, they understood that the mustard seed was the smallest of the seeds they normally planted. And still, it could germinate, take root, and flourish, eventually becoming an eight- to 10-foot tall shrub.

So, as I reflect and take a seat back; I would like to think that I too needed Jesus speaking to me on how I need to focus on my blog ministry and how it should go. Start out small get a feel on how  I needed to reevaluate where I am and what is the next move.    Quite frankly, those that have been commented on my post with likes; I was getting a little big headed (just a tiny bit and I needed to remind myself again that it’s not about me).  In saying this it’s important for me to remember when I use this forum to evangelize that it takes more than one may think when they are very new to this.  I know that I have to trust and depend on only what the Holy Spirit is directing for me to write.  I know now too that I have to  have a connection and dialog sharing with people who have experience and are learned folks; it’s important for me to not think that God is only talking to me but to have that connection on a personal level  connecting with God fearing bloggers who God is speaking to as well in such a time as this.  I would like to think that I too am part of the remnant in this generation (Father, I believe this platform is one of the ways you are using your children) What a blessing; one of my favorite websites; “GotQuestionsOrg” Elmer Tow; Jesus made it clear that this remnant would be small when compared to the number of people on the earth throughout history. “Many” will find the way to eternal destruction, but “few” will find the way to eternal life (Matthew 7:13-14). We who believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior can, with great peace, rest in the fact that we belong to the “remnant.”

I pray that someone will  be so stirred up that they too will go deeper in their study and then let God use them for his Kingdom Building as well. My ultimate goal is to reach where I am being used for community base movement connection using my gifts to be part of the bigger picture in preaching the Gospel to the lost.  I hear in my spirit when the preacher will ask “Will there be just one” ~ Come to Jesus – Millions have come and there is still room for you at the cross.

BLESSINGS!
