Living in the Crossroad of Life...

Life is full of Crossroads. It seems like everyday your faced with a decision of some kind, to choose, to pick, to stop, or slow down. Lately at work they started by cutting hours, and today we found out that layoffs begin now! SO tomorrow I will find out if I am still employed or if I will be filing for unemployment. Crossroads! Life never ceases to amaze me in the direction sometimes it takes you. Just like I remember when dad and I would play catch. I may try and throw a fast ball but some reason it ended up being a curve ball 50 ft to right or left of dad. Life is a lot like that, we want so bad to go a certain direction, but life takes down another course. Well, through it all I am reminded that Jesus Christ is still on the throne. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever! So now matter what tomorrow holds for me or maybe for you, it is critical that we know and hold to the fact that Jesus holds tomorrow! Gods word is full of scripture telling us to Trust in Jesus more! Proverbs 3:5-6 come to mind, that we are trust in the Lord with all our hearts and lean not on our own understanding but in all our way acknowledge Him and He will direct our paths. I believe now more than ever that Jesus is soon to return and don't want to miss it! I stand at a Crossroad today, and as I stand, I ponder that my God is able to do more than I can ask or even imagine. I pray about the best road to take, and then I step out in Christ and move one step at a time! Living in the peace of Christ!!!

Living in the fullness of Christ.

God is so good! I am amazed to how awesome, and how good to me God truly is! In fact I would go farther and say that God is beyond Good. God is indescribable!
Psalm 1 says, "Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers." WOW! Powerful words from the word of God. I want to be a man that is daily delighting myself in Jesus. I remember where my dad use to keep his cattle was creek that ran through the middle of the pasture. It had little water in it, but it was amazing to me the trees that would grow out of that creek bed green and full of life! Sometimes the rains would come and there would be lots of water there, but for the most part there was just a trace of water always in the creek. Its the same with us and God! If we will plant our lives in Jesus, we will be like the trees in the creek that had just enough water at nourishment at all times. The bible says, "which yield its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither." As for us, that would be the fruits of the spirit, - Galatians 5:22, "But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control." Delighting yourself in Jesus gives you victory and success and as the word says in Psalm 1:3 "Whatever he does prospers." thank you Jesus! Really God is Good all the time, and living for Jesus is truly a gift! I am so blessed to be able to live for the King! In His Peace.

Psalm 37:3-6
"Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun."
Nike says, "Just Do It" but really where do we take those words and place them into action? Over and over again God gives us constant words of direction followed with powerful words of encouragement. Often times these words fall on cold hearts or idle lives. I am convinced that God is not calling us into a trust relationship just because, but understand that God is longing for intimacy with you and me. God does not have favorites but he does have intimates! As we trust God he gives us safety in the land we live in. Hard times, struggles beyond imagination are here but God is present and He cares for you and for me! As we delight ourselves in Jesus, our hearts desires become fulfilled. I believe its critical to remember that Life is not about us, but Jesus! The bible tells us that if our ways will be committed to God, then our righteousness is going to shine and the justice of our cause will come forth like the noonday sun! My prayer is that stop, and we fall on our knees before a HOLY God and we take time to get Intimate with the King of Kings and we feast eating nothing but the best of the best. I was born for Thee, What is Thy will for me, I will do all for Thee! Living in the Moment!

Push - Pull

Lately being pushed and pulled by life has been constant! About the time I am getting used to being pushed, all of a sudden I start feel the pull in another direction. All across the globe today millions of people are without a job wondering how they are going to pay bills, feed their families, and just make ends meet. Life is tough, its full of challenging situations where we either stand our ground or we become PUSHED or PULLED in several different directions! I want my heart and your heart to be reminded of the fact that God is not being pushed or pulled anywhere and He is listening to us! He cares! He knows were hurting with life circumstances! I believe right now at the very Crossroad of life, where I am and where you are, God is simply calling us to abide in His so His words may abide in us! I believe it is critical that we stand firmly upon the promises of God and that we claim them in the midst of being PUSHED and PULLED or least extremely feeling it because life is tough, but friends GOD remains faithful! Get your chin up and realize with me that there is no mountain to big for GOD, there is no river to wide, or Ocean to deep that God himself can't move out of our way or pick us up and move us where ever He needs us! I was born for Thee, I will give my all for Thee, What is Thy will for me! Living in the moment with Jesus!
