Just remember that no matter what, nothing can keep God from loving you. NOTHING!! He hates sin, but He loves YOU! He gives us every opportunity to come to Him on our own, and no matter what, He keeps on loving us. Let the words that J. Moss sing ring throughout your spirit this week. The song is called, Good & Bad, cop it on Itunes now. He loves you!

I know that a lot of you have read this chapter in Ecclesiastes before, or at the very least has heard passages from it, but please take a moment to chew on this word. It will really help you in your walk with Christ. It will give you the ability to exercise the patience that is endowed to you by the Holy Spirit. Just meditate on it.
“To EVERYTHING there is a season, and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven…”-Ecclesiates 3:1
There is a purpose for your life. You are not here by coincidence, or happenstance, God knew exactly what He was doing when He knitted you in your mothers womb. It is your lifes work to find out what that purpose is. But the toil doesn’t have to be painful, if you would only seek the Creator to find out. Then trust that He has your best interest at heart, and TRUST HIM.
Brian Courtney Wilson has returned with his sophmore album, So Proud, and the song that ministers to me the most, is Obey Anyway. When I first heard this song, I could only shake my head in agreeance, simply because at the end of the day, it’s what God desires. His plan for your life, is one that can be trusted, and it will lead you right to where He said you will be. Most of us spend our whole lives trying to find purpose, then trying to make it fit into our everyday existence, but when you follow God’s plan, you will realize that where you end up, is not only where He said you will be, but you will have brought Him glory in the process.
Your life absolutely does have purpose. God has not created anything in this earth that does not serve a purpose. The question you have to ask is, will you follow God’s plan, BELIEVING, that it is the best plan for you? Or will you choose your own path, and then decide to tell Him why what you chose for yourself was better than what He had planned? Remember no one truly know what the creation is made to do better than the CREATOR. Have a great week.
Good afternoon everyone. Today I just wanted to take a moment to say to everyone how important it is to find out who you are. Not who people say you are, not what has been inferred on you, but who GOD says you are. See in life that’s all that is important. When you are gone it’s the only thing that will be left to speak for you. Let me tell you about the day I became me. It was 1997, seemingly a normal day in my life. I was pregnant with my 3rd child, although I was not married. I had just laid down, when there was a pounding on my front door. I remember my child’s father at the time saying, “they knocking like it’s the police” and sure enough that’s who it was. The look on the police face was enough to let me know that it was beyond serious, needless to say, I was told I had to get to the hospital right then, because my son had been rushed there. Although I could not understand all that was happening, my mind went into overdrive, and I kept reasoning to myself that maybe it was nothing really serious, and that everything would be fine. I guess I should say that my son, along with his older sister, went to spend the night with their father, which is why a policemen had to come and get me as they were rushing my son to the hospital. I could go further into detail, but this would be too long to read…but I will say that when I got to the hospital, my life began to change. The first sign of how bad it was, was the look on my children fathers’ face, it showed fear, despair, pain of the highest magnitude. And this was from a man who generally showed very little emotion. When the doctor realized I was there, he swept me into a room by myself, and let me know the severity of the situation. My son had choked on a very small ball that was lodged into his windpipe, and he passed away on the way to the hospital. My knees became weak, and it was hard to focus from that point. Then I heard the doctor say, they were able to get the ball out, but he surely had been without oxygen for over 15 minutes so they were sure that he would be brain dead. I remembered crying, becoming angry, exhausted, blaming myself, if you can think of it, the emotion surely came.
I didn’t grow up in a home that talked about God at all, and yet I believed that HE was real. I mean it wasn’t that my family didn’t believe that He was real, but more like know one KNEW HIM personally. At that moment in the hospital, I just began to pray, and no I wasn’t saved myself. But I was smart enough to know that if anybody could fix the situation it would have to be Jesus. On the 4th day in the hospital, watching my son make no progress, his body failing him, simply because his brain was not working, it was torcher to watch. I mean as his mother I was completely helpless. As I sat there with my son, praying, in walks this man…he was dressed in a suit, and I assumed he was a pastor. I remember like it was yesterday, he said to me: “Is this your son?” I responded “yes.” He then asked: “do you mind if I pray with you and your son?” I quickly said no of course not. He reached his hand across to me (as I sat on the opposite side of the bed from where he was standing) and he began to pray. When he was done, he asked me this question: “ARE YOU SAVED?” I said, “no.” He said, “do you mind removing your hand from your son for a second and allow me to pray?” I said “absolutely.” Because for me at that point, there was no time to be offended, I just wanted my son to be healed. I removed my hand from my son, and the man began to pray. Yet, he was praying in tongues (even though I had never heard this before). When he was done he said this: “Now Father, let this mother know that her son is not in any pain, and that You have already moved on his behalf, LET HIM OPEN UP HIS EYES.” Now remember my son was brain dead, so responding to commands would not be possible. My son, OPENED UP HIS EYES, AND LOOKED AT ME. I was sitting on a stool, and almost fell off. After about 10 seconds he closed his eyes. The man said: “LORD SHE DON’T BELIEVE YOU, DO IT AGAIN.” This time, my son TURNED HIS HEAD TOWARDS ME, and for about 20 seconds he laid there looking at me. And the man asked me, “DO YOU WANT TO BE SAVED?” I said yes!!! After that moment, the man left, and when I went after him to thank him, no one even knew who I was talking about. My son’s room was right beside the nurses station, yet no one seen this man enter nor exit. I have determined he was sent by God. Right there, I was on the road to becoming me!
You know the real me, who God created me to be. It has been a long road, but one that has had it’s peaks and valleys, and with everyone of them, I have grown more into who I was destined to become. See it’s funny because people throw around the term “being real” often, and yet most of them, have no idea what that means. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spirtual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!(Amplified) But if you ever want to become the real you, then it first start with finding out who HE is. See at that moment in the hospital, I believed what I had heard, you know that God was real, Jesus died on the cross, but I had no RELATIONSHIP with the knowledge I had obtained. Like a lot of us, it took something tragic to happen for me to find out who Christ was, but I believed, and continue to this day. The more I have come to know Him, the more I have come to know about myself. Remember in Matthew 16:16-18, once Peter answered Christ question about who people thought He was, Jesus then responded by letting him (Peter) know who he was (who God created him to be), along with the foundation of (faith) of what He (Christ) would build His church on. I said all that so that whomever may read this, it’s extremely important that you find out WHO YOU ARE! The real you! Who God created you to be! My motto in life is this: “IT WOULD BE A TRAVESTY IF YOU LIVED YOUR WHOLE LIFE AND NEVER BECAME WHO GOD CREATED YOU TO BE.”-MARGO
I believe that the one thing the devil thought would make me never come to Christ, was the one thing that brought me to Him. See I have no doubt that my son fulfilled his purpose in this life, and because of him, I will have everlasting life, and see him again. May God bless those who took the time to read this, and show them who they are.
Okay this video explains exactly what I tell people daily: Jesus is not Religion. It’s funny to me that people read the bible daily, and still have no understanding of Who Christ is. Now it’s not that I’m some bible scholar, but I daily thank the HOLY SPIRIT for bringing me into a deeper relationship with Christ..just like Paul said, “Oh that I may KNOW HIM.” Jesus constantly spoke against the religious leaders of his day (Pharisees & Sadducee) mainly because though they “read the scroll” had the information about the coming MESSIAH, yet they did not even recognize HIM when HE showed up. Instead they were busy trying to make themselves higher than they were. Know one thing, JESUS came that we could be in RELATIONSHIP with the FATHER again. So understand what being a BELIEVER truly means, and don’t get caught up in the outward perception of man, because it’s what’s on the inside (your spirit) that will live forever, and man’s opinion don’t get to decide that. A man asked me this week: “So you telling me that a person who does good, never hurt anybody (like killed a man) or whatever. God would not allow them into heaven, simply because they did not accept Jesus Christ as Lord & Savior?” I simply told him this, “I’m not the judge to say who goes in, & who doesn’t. But I have read the requirements, and just like anything else we must fulfill them to get to the place we want to go. For us there is only a decision that must be made, but for HIM, HE ALREADY DIED, whether you accept HIM or not. And lastly you say you never “killed anybody” but sometimes with our words alone we speak death to people, so be sure about that. And what’s “doing good” & by whose standards are those things good?” And after saying that, the man walked away…came back and said…”NOW THAT’S FOOD FOR THOUGHT!” Man constantly wants to make up his own rules, but to God it’s folly. You don’t get to make up the rules for something you DID NOT INVENT/CREATE. ONLY THE CREATOR OF A THING GET’S TO DO THAT. Jesus is not about religion, but He is about RELATIONSHIP.
