Oh I’m just sitting here patiently awaiting patience to arrive at my doorstep and ring the stinkin doorbell….. Any minute now…Waiting……..
Since patience doesn’t seem to want to stop by tonight, I thought I might sit around and hang out with worry, stress, and impatience a little while. Arghhh!!!
This week has been a tough one. I am normally chipper and happy-go-lucky, but I just have so many things going on around me I wish I could just reach up and grab a few things and pluck them out of rotation. I can’t delve into specifics at the moment but I am getting tired of unpleasant turn of events. I will be glad when life settles down to some degree.
There are times when you just want to be a little wreckless. Maybe just enjoy moaning, groaning, and dragging your knuckles a bit. I guess now is one of those times for me. I will listen to logic knocking on the back door, while I patiently wait for patience to arrive at the front door tonight. I wonder if I left the light on so they know I’m home?! hmm….. Off to check. See ya.
In the meantime I will cling to this passage:
37:7 Wait patiently for the Lord! 1
Wait confidently 2 for him!
Do not fret over the apparent success of a sinner, 3
a man who carries out wicked schemes!
37:8 Do not be angry and frustrated! 4
Do not fret! That only leads to trouble!
37:9 Wicked men will be wiped out,
but those who rely on the Lord are the ones who will possess the land.

Today I pray that God will lead me like a vessel lost at sea. Like a ship without a captain, that he will push me purposefully. I pray that my existence is meager next to him, that all the glory of accomplishments lead new souls to him. I pray for my direction to be wherever he chooses, and I pray that I care less to count my wins and loses. I pray my battle keeps me, and my sword stays in its sheath.
I pray you will fight it for me Lord, when I hand it over to thee. I pray I don’t mis-lead, or teeter far away, I pray you align me to what you want from me today. I pray Lord forgiveness for all the mistakes I will make, and I forgive all others for simple mercy’s sake. Give me God my blessings, Give me what I need.. To make today successful, I begin it on my knees.

Did you know that you have wings? They may be invisible on this Earth, but friend I tell you that as soon as these chains are bound to Earth- we are going to fly!
Isaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
I’ll Fly Away (Jars Of Clay with Lyrics)
My question to you is: What are you doing to show you have wings? So many christians are so bound by————————>
…That they never experience the fullness of their wingspan! Matter of fact – they often live life on Earth like a caged bird with their wings clipped. Have you ever watched a bird that has been caged for a long time? They may have their ability to fly, and may aspire to..but they have been in their cage for so long that they FORGET that they actually CAN fly. I have seen rehabilitated birds come out of cages that they have been bound to for years-in cramped quarters- come out and walk….never attempting flight.
Though they can fly, they won’t fly.
Are you living your today like your wings have been clipped? Like that cage is fencing you in? Don’t you know that once you truly turn your life over to Jesus, you can fly!!?? You will fly! And if you by chance fall, you have a soft place to land. Personally, I just learned how to fly. I just learned how to use my gifts. I just learned that no matter how mediocre you think you might be on this Earth, God will use whatever you have and multiply it exponentially. Keep your sights on the Kingdom, and the glory of God, and fly….By all means…… FLY!

I love you lord for what you do for me. I love you lord for what I am to you. I love you Lord, those days you carry me. I love you lord. some days without you I dont know where I would be.
When I think about all the times and things I did said. Went after what I wanted so relentlessly. Brings me down to nothing when I think about how selfish Ive been. How selfish Ive been.
So you changed me. Rearranged me. made me better today. I can love you and not love me for all that I was consumed. Lord I love you because you loved me. And you showed me how to be. The love you found and gave to me. My heart was so buried. Until you showed me your way. That I could give love away. And be so happy. Lord Ill be so happy. yeah, to give my love away. Its not in taking day by day. Its in the giving love away. you make me straight.
I just wanna give my love away. Jesus. Give my love away. I thank you lord in heaven today. That you would give me the love that I would love to give away.
Jesus Im gonna give it away.
This heart of stone it turned to gold. It was rediscovered and recovered by Jesus. Im gonna give it away. You made my heart to love. YOu made my heart to love people. Give love, be love, now I know it. Im gonna show it. Ive gonna give love, Im not gonna take it. Im gonna give love, oh yea. My reason for being is to love humanity. I know I can just love. I dont see so color, I dont see no dirt. I dont see nothing but your heart and soul and spirit. I love you for you. Jesus put it in me to love, So I will love. No judgement on you. No judgement from me. Because God himself doesnt judge until your days are done. he told me so, so who am I today, to tell you what your doing wrong. Im nothing. Im nothing. Im no one without you Jesus. I know my place – behind you.

Praise God that there are no trials, there are no troubles, and there will be no burdens there. Amen to that! I can’t wait to get to that other side! I am feeling blessed to know that divine truth. This world has a way of getting us deep down and low. clinging to God’s truths that I won’t be here forever is a relief. I’ll fly away. Amen to that! Thank God I am spiritual being having a temporary human experience. It is hard for some to have the zeal and excitement that I do for death and the afterlife at 28. I have experienced Gods presence, and I can’t wait to go back into that wonderous place again. God truly will catch all my worldly worries, and he will be in control long after I am gone – so why should I worry about minute things of this world? It’s easy to express when life is going good, but it’s hard to feel that way when the burdens are so heavy you can’t breathe. Good news ahead people.. Our life on earth will be short no doubt, and God will be waiting for us in heaven. Those pearly gates never shined so bright as they do in the forefront of my mind this morning. I just thought that we all could use a little good news about the gospel. We have heard enough about death and destruction, and judgement and hells fire and brimstone. Lets celebrate the afterlife. Let’s celebrate those promises that will no doubt be fulfilled. Thank you God. thank you.

I wrote a blog on tithing not too long ago. click HERE if you didnt read it. So today I thought I would update everyone on how that is going in my life. I must say, though I haven’t become an overnight millionaire, I “get it”. I completely understand how God works when you work with God. I am seeing God’s favor in my bank account for the first time in a long time.
How you ask?
It all started with a promise, a little faith, and a meager little check that was my tithe.
10 Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.
The month after I started tithing I started to see things happen. Little things that most would ignore, but because I was looking for the promise to be fulfilled with my obedience I saw it. I started getting a few refund checks in my name I didnt even know I had coming to me. My electric bill decreased by half, things started aligning in my favor. Oh, I am sold on tithing! You don’t have to beg me for money preacher because I’m already sitting in the pew ready to dunk my meager money in the pot. It’s all Gods anyway…..
30 “Every tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the trees, is the Lord’s; it is holy to the Lord.
…..He just wants to see how obedient I will be with my portion. Take it away! Thats the first check I write, and I gladly give it away.
2 Corinthians 9:6-7
6 The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully[a] will also reap bountifully. 7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
