A man who claims to be Christian but actions say different
I feel like your a wolf in sheeps clothing. Say godly things but act and chose to do ungodly things. You can not serve two masters. In the word it says show me your works and i will show you whom you serve. If you walk in darkness and say you have fellowship with God the truth is not in you. We pick up our crosses daily. Dont spit in Gods face by saying he made me this way. Once you accepted Christ he gave you a new begining the old man died. That is why we need to pray and seek him always for in our weakness he is made strong. We will not stop learning until we die. That is why you frustrate me, you know so much but yet your actions dont align. WHY? You should seriously think of the consequences you bring others. Fine if you chose whatever, but dont bring others down in your decision to do wrong. I know we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of god, but be the Man of Godly character that the lord has called you to be!!!!
How am I to date in a world of men drawn only to sex, drugs and rock and roll. I am trying to stay pure with eyes now focused fully on the lord. Is it to much to ask that i have a man that seeks the same. A man with Godly Character, a man that put the lord first in all his ways. Lord fill this void of false intamacy with men and just replace it with a stronger desire for you..
Please Brothers and Sisters pray in agreement with me.

I recently went to a marketing meeting and was asked who was in my inner circle, I immediatly said my family. What they really wanted was the list of people I come in contact with. Like at school, at the nail salon, church,... basically anywhere I tend to go. Their strategy was if I go to any place out side of work I could market our company.
Who is in your immediate circle?
We need to think out side the strategy of marketing and more along the lines of Gods kingdom!
Who is in our inner circles that doesnt know the love of God.
We can and are useful in Gods kingdom. Step back and really think of those who you come in contact with. Remember that the Lord said they will know us by the love we share with one another.

So, i just want to share an awesome testimony about how good our Lord is!!! So its been a tough 2 yrs at work!!! I feel like I've been in oppression for them long years! But the last year I began to pray, "Lord deliver me from this prison, open a door for me and set me free"
One year later God was faithful in answering that prayer!
Recently there was an opening at a huge company.... They opened up 10 positions! From what I hear 500 to 700 people applied, I dont know wich number is true but I know it was alot! Well out of them hundreds they let 80 take the test made up of three tests! From there they chose 40 to enterveiw, out of them fourty they selected the 10 plus four beacause from what I hear the canidats were so impressive! Well out of them 14 I was one!!!!!
Many years ago when I first became a Christian I told my self I was going to test Matthew 6:33! Well its true... "seek first the Kingdom of God and all His righteousness, and all these things will be added on to you"!
Put God first and He will take care of the rest!!!! Thank you DAD for your love nd blessings! I am unworthy, but you still pour them out! I love you!

God is Light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.~1 John 1:5-6 (NKJV)
Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life." ~John 8:12
Jesus Observed that some people love darkness rather than light, because their deeds are evil, but that lovers of truth are drawn to light - they are drawn to the light of Jesus. ~John 3:19-21
He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now. He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him. ~1 John 2:9-10

I find myself being that hypocritcal christian, do as I say not as I do. I found that the hidden sins in my life were over taking my walk. Truth is, I was what I always said I didnt want to be, the hypocritcal christian. I went to church, I helped out, I even gave christian docturnal advice all the while the devil was playing his devil role. Now i want to make one thing evident WE have a choice to do right from wrong. Understand that if you do wrong and the devil leads you astray YOU have made the choice!!! With this said I made the wrong choices. I chose to keep my sins hidden from all of you better yet I tried to keep them hidden from the almighty. I am going to humbly confess to you all what I have done so that way you can see the Grace that God has poured out on to me.
I was married I had an affair which led to a divorce. I became a drug addict loved and still love coke (which i dont do anymore) am promiscuous, battle with sexual immorality to the point where i felt as if i wasnt good enough for a man so I started to dating a girl ( which i thought i loved) I judge myself and others. I dont bridal my toung and i dont claim my authority. I have fallen short!!! I have sinned. I am not great. I am a mother to a beautiful son named isaiah whom i dont have because i let his dad have him. I confess this garbage to you all so that you know Gods GRACE!!!!!
I AM CHOSEN!!!!! JESUS DIED FOR ME!!!! FOR YOU!!!! AND HE HAS MADE ME CLEAN!!!!!
REMEMBER THERE IS NOTHING IN THIS UGLY WORLD THAT CAN SEPERATE YOU FROM GODS LOVE!! I am no better then you (reader) Claim your GRACE through JESUS. Bring your sins to light confess them to him and he will forgive you and make you right. GOD IS GREAT

Where did we all go? Have we stopped doing Gods will and proceded to do our own?
We have to be true to God and each other. What has he called you to do? What brings you Joy?
Brothers & Sisters,
Please forgive me for I have ran fast and hard the opposite direction in which God has called me. I am the real life girl version of Jonah...... eeeeeek.
Please pray for me and the other leaders of this ministry. God is calling us to STEP OUT and BOLDLY PROCLAIM HIS WORD among the nations. Pray that we dont run from Gods calling and that we will daily step up and out of our fleshly doubts and into his calling for us.
Thank you so much my amazing family!
The city was dark as clouds of dust filled the air. People all around were in a panic. Something was coming. A small RV was parked in the square between four tall buildings and I knew that I needed to get my family out of there. It was getting late and my grandparents hadn't arrived yet. A day earlier, I had told them to meet me here at this very spot so we could leave together, in hopes of avoiding what was to come. But they were taking a long time. Too long. I finally decided I could not wait any longer. Lucas was in childcare in the same building they lived in so I unbuckled Sarah and Jojo and we all ran inside, all the while, shielding our eyes from the gray dirt and debris that blew so forcefully against us. Inside, I found my grandparents and we proceeded to rummage through their apartment for anything we might need: medical supplies, food, water...
I told them to get to the RV while the kids and I went up a few floors to get Lucas. In the elevator, I pressed the button, selected the floor number, and impatiently watched the numbers climb. 4...5...6...7...8. But to my confusion and trepidation, it failed to stop on the floor I had selected. Despite my efforts to stop the elevator or change the direction, the elevator continued to make it's way up. 'Ding'! The doors opened and I gasped. I was able to look out and see the tops of the other buildings. I had to be at least 100 stories high and for someone who HATES heights, that was not a comfortable place to be. Gripping the hands of my two children, something caught my eye and instantly, my heart sank . A man in a business suit stood before me, his demeanor eerily calm and wearing a mischievious smile. In his arms he held Lucas. Confused and terrified, I took a step forward, wanting to run toward my child and knowing with all certainty that his was the devil. He held out his hand, gesturing for me to stop and then he held my baby boy over the edge of the skyscraper. "How much do you love your God?" he taunted, an evil grin spread wide across his face. Hot tears streamed down my cheeks and I knew what he was asking me to do. Did I love God, My Father more than I loved my son? I swallowed back the sob that rose in my throat and cried "I love Him more than my children...I love Him more than anything!" His face twisted in anger and he turned my attention to Lucas who still hovered hundreds of feet above the ground below.. Slowly, he released him over the edge.
Instantly, he vanished and I was left clutching my frightened children, screaming after my son and watching helplessly as his small body flailed in midair. All I remember thinking was, "Father! Please!" Suddenly, a great light blinded me and between me and the building next to the one I was on, a great lion appeared! He was a mighty presence, half as tall as the towering structures he was lying between. Then, out of the great light he gave off, arose a beautiful, warrior-like angel clothed all in white and riding a horse the color of ivory. He great wings spread out and were double the length of his body. He rode up through the air and caught Lucas up in his arms. With the breath of his wings on my face, he landed in front of me and handed me my baby boy. He told me, " Those who love the Lord and do not deny Him will be proteted and rewarded for their faithfulness." All I could do was to stand there on shaking knees, embracing my children and praising My Father in Heaven!
Thank you, Lord for this reminder of Your love and the encouragement to give my whole heart to only YOU knowing that my joy and my reward will come from you along with my ability to spend eternity in your presence!!

SKIP THE COAL AND GIVE THEM THE ROCK
Do you feel like you know that special someone who you want to give a lump of coal for Christmas? You know that person who has wronged you again and again this year. So I guess what we'll do is get the coal, put a cute little bow on it and place it in a spot that our special someone will be sure to find it. This way he or she will know that they made someones naughty list right? Then maybe they'll straighten up because we were bold enough to be rude to them for the sake of getting them to clean up their act right? Because that's what Jesus would do right? We as Christians know nothing could be further from the truth! "But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you," (Matthew 5:44) It is so hard to live up to those words in today's world. We should pray for strength and wisdom to remember these words and live them out when we think about giving out that lump of coal. When I thought of the people I'd like to give coal to recently, I was convicted and God put on my heart "skip the coal and give them the rock." What did this mean? Was I really to give out rocks to these people? No, you know God would not ask me to do that. "The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer" (2 Samuel 22:2) This is what God meant. I need to share the word with my brother and sisters who I feel have wronged me. In this way blessing those who curse me. Maybe they don't know Jesus and that's why they have wronged me and others. Maybe I've been over sensitive and they haven't wronged me at all. Maybe it's someone who God is calling through me. That would be a real blessing to me. Maybe it's a better friendship and someone to walk with in faith just waiting to happen. Whatever the reason, sharing the Lord can never be a bad thing. So here I sit with a pile of coal in the trash and gift of prayer that all have or will receive the Rock (The Lord) and that all have or will build Their life foundation upon it. This year, when you think of the "bad" people in your life, skip the coal and give them the Rock.
Until next time,
The strength of the Lord be with you

We are Ruth
We all have had times in our lives (while we were believers and before we were believers) that we can remember and wonder, "How did I ever make it through that time in my life?" It turns out that in this we have many ties to Ruth in the old testament. Ruth was a Moabitess; a foreigner in the land of Bethlehem, just as we are foreigners to this world. Our home is in heaven. " but our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for a savior, the Lord Jesus Christ." (Philippians 3:20) Also, like Ruth we are not deserving of the grace of God in the same manner that Ruth had done nothing to deserve the favor shown by Boaz. All along our lives we have been getting by (believer or not) gleaning on the grain that God has purposely let fall from the bundles. The grain that we glean is not all there is, but all we choose to receive as God always provides more than we need. So when you look back and wonder how did you make it? The answer is you made it by Gods grace, The Grains he provided and left for you to collect so that you may survive. You have never been the first at anything, you have never gone anywhere alone nor have you arrived anywhere first. Our Father has always gone before you to prepare the way. How did you make it? How will you make it? God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He provided for us before and he will provide for us again. So when you have doubt follow the grain. He is right in front of you laying it out for you to collect. You know, I have given this message to a few people who I felt needed to hear it. But as I drove I-70 home from work the other night I found myself upset and worried. Drowning in all the holiday worries that the enemy and my flesh could throw at me. You know all the things like: will I be off work?, Will I have enough money? and so on. Then the Holy Spirit fell upon me and reminded me of something the enemy must have forgotten. The Holy Spirit reminded me that my father in heaven has many names and all of them soar high above anything concerning the issues of this world. Two of the Fathers names came to me. The first was IMMANUEL (God with us). God was with me and had done away with all the worries that my flesh and the enemy had put on me by reminding me of the second name JEHOVAH-JIREH (the Lord will provide). This "We are Ruth" message was again given to me. But this time not for the purpose of passing it along. This time the message was from the Father to me, for me. So that I would remember to follow the trail of grain that was provided for me (JEHOVAH-JIREH) By God who is always with me (IMMANUEL). All this in a 30 minute drive home! As I finished my drive and pulled into my driveway, all I could do was smile. Because it all could have been avoided if I had just remembered Jesus loves me and if that's not enough to smile about I don't know what is.
Until next time,
The Grace of Jesus be with you
