Social Media Makes Minds of All Kind Matter


image

Times have changed! No longer can we pretend racism is a thing of the past, thanks to social media and it’s intentional mission to provide a free-form social networking platform to dialog, inform, enlighten and report, while keeping it real. You can speak your mind even if it only make sense in your head! On today’s social media websites, everyday people have 24/7 opportunities to go where they’ve never gone before, to get fed mentally, intellectually, socially or emotionally.

For those of us who indulge in social media, we know at times the truth does the opposite of setting us free, especially on social media. However, we take our chances anyway. We love to expand our reality.

Social media has single-handedly exposed every type of evil in the world, as well as those who perpetrate it. Once a post hits the internet highway, or pics and videos, the after-math is usually explosive, revealing and sometimes damaging, definately hard to contain.
Yet there are those who continue denying certain social ills are a thing of the past….doesn’t matter if it’s in black & white.

Today race issues as well as other prevalent social issues dominate every major social media website, especially #Facebook, #Twitter and #Google Plus. These sites also share mainstream and non-mainstream news articles on various topics. “You can’t find what they offer collectively and for free any other place.”

If you don’t understand the plight and fight of others, you can get schooled on Facebook. Some will say a lot off what you read on social media isn’t true? I say a lot of what I read or watch on mainstream media ain’t true! Also, any media source worth mentioning has a Facebook page? This means you can get the best of both world’s when visiting social media sites. Above all else get understanding!

I’m so happy to be alive during this era and to finally have a non-biased news and lifestyle specific relaying resource at my disposal. If I only had a choice between watching #FOX News or reading Facebook posts about or on current news and other stories, I’d choose Facebook hands down.

When #Facebook is used in the way it was intended, it’s a powerful resource!

Praying For Safe Passage


image

“Father God, Bless my husband and I, other truck Drivers, their riding companions and everybody else on the road this morning”

I’ve been on the road with my honey 11 days now. This journey is different than any other I’ve taken on. There’s a whole nother’ world out here, “it’s the world of truckers!” This lifestyle is not for most and definitely challenging.

I would never have thought I could function in such a small space, but I’m doing it. However,  Marcus said I brought too many clothes and other stuff???? When we go home we’ve gotta off-load some stuff, but somethings won’t be negotiable LOL

Thank all truckers, men and women who are on the road every single day delivering goods to your stores so you have food and clothing.  Lord, they go through so much stress making sure their freight is delivered on time.  When hazardous conditions arise I pray You keep us safe.  When running behind, give us Your peace in the moment. Father, I pray for safe journeys for all!  Amen

Say Yes To Peace of Mind


image

Good morning everyone.

“Today is a good day to evaluate the company you keep.”

It took many years for me to recognize the warning signs of toxic people. Once I accepted God as Head in my life, He blessed me with the gift of discernment. 

A discerning spirit equips you with an ability to see into a person’s abyss. In other words, you can see the heart, which is the soul of the conscience.

If the heart is not right the mind is not right and what one does with a contrite heart is mostly wrong.

You don’t want hard-hearted people in your circle, they require too much work and they drain you to the point of emptiness, if you let them. I don’t anymore!

Remember, the battle is not yours, It’s the Lord’s!

God Hears Your Cry


What speaks to me today.

“As for my friends and my neighbors, they stand aloof from my distress; even my close relatives stand at a distance.”
Psalm 38:

In this life you will come to know pain! There’s no way to live a life void of it. The good thing about pain is that it strengthens all who endure it. Yes my friend, pain makes you stronger and less fragile in times of distress. Distress is just a blessed mess!

“God hears your cry!”

As for today, no matter how it starts off, thank God for putting you smack dabb im the middle of it. Honor Him for favoring you. Embrace the lesson before you, while believing with all your heart…..a blessing is attached somewhere, because it is!

If you couldn’t get through this, God would not have brought you to it. There is no problem too big for God!

Thank God For Hump Day


image

To my family and friends, enemies too. “If you’re reading this text I know God is working on you.” We are all a work in progress. As for traditional work, those we work for and along side, should see the love of God in us, even as we labor.

Today was hump day! Since jobs are a gift from the Lord, our words at work should exemplify those of a thankful and appreciative heart. There should be no doubt in anybody’s mind, that God is Head in your life, your provider, comforter and protector.

Thank God if you have somewhere to hump! They’re a lot of people unemployed or seriously underemployed out here.

Lord I thank you for everything and everybody in my life. Help me refrain from complaining about things I don’t have. I know I’m truly blessed. 

Amen!

The Greatest Story Ever Told Is About Jesus Christ


be55004ba2764db1a38db37f48e5cd0f

You can choose to believe Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary on Christmas day or you can spend the rest of your life trying to disprove it. I choose to believe, because, frankly there’s just too much evidence of His miracles to deny His birth.

The story of the birth and life of Jesus Christ is unmatched by any other human’s life story; it’s also the greatest story ever told. God wants us to know that the story about His son Jesus Christ is not a fairy tale. “Reading about His life will change yours forever.”

Jesus was born in the year 4 B.C., in the city of David, Bethlehem. He was born of the virgin Mary, put inside her by the Holy Spirit. When Baby Jesus was born Angels announced His coming to all the world. Excluding Gods creation of heaven and earth; there has never been anything as magnificent as the birth of Jesus Christ, and there never will.

On this day, many moons ago, on what we call Christmas day, even shepherds  gave honor when this King was born. The event was so magnificent wise men were summoned from afar by the shining of a glorious star. Christmas day deserves praise and recognition  from all those who claim to love the Lord.

Fast forwarding: Baby Jesus was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth, instead, He was raised in the small rural town of Nazareth. His father Joseph was a carpenter who taught him how to use the tools of his trade. Carpentry requires manual labor as well as special skills. “Jesus was a hard worker.” What about you? Is this the life you envision when you consider being more like Christ?

On this Christmas Eve, I want to begin my Christmas celebration by acknowledging and believing with all my heart, my Savior was truly born on Christmas day.

Next I want to thank Him for saving me and blessing me with my cell phone ministry.

I started my cell phone ministry on February 9, 2014, about a month after my sister Phyllis passed away in California. On that day, I identified about 18 people I thought I could ask if I could send daily inspirational text messages too, and not get cussed out. Yes I got permission first and still do.

Today that list has grown to  (71) people. Yes I send 71 people an inspirational text message almost every day. I have missed a few days, but not many.

I have 6 groups of 6-10, 4 groups of 2 and the rest didn’t want to be in a group, they get a personal daily inspirational text message. God is so good!

Thank all of you who told somebody who told somebody else, about this ministry and for praying for those who requested prayer from time to time.

I even have a couple of anonymous brothers or sisters too, they just texted me their cell number and asked to be added to our ministry, I still don’t know their names, but God does.

I’m so overjoyed today, hope you’re feeling it too. My goal is to add 29 more people to our list, reaching 100,  by the end of January, with your help of course. What a wonderful Christmas it’s been for me!

Merry Christmas everybody, have a wonderful day and I hope you’ll find a way to be a blessing to Jesus Christ first, by blessing another in word, thought or deed on this wonderful Christmas day.

Thank You Lord for keeping me, blessing me and protecting me, so I can honor the most celebrated birthday in the wide world. Merry Christmas to all of you.  Amen

Rejection


Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit.

1 Thessalonians 4:8

No matter how emotionally intact you are rejection has the power to shatter your life, if you are not grounded in the Lord. Rejection can occur in many ways. You can experience it in your professional life, personal life and even in your spiritual life. You might wonder how anyone could be rejected in the spiritual realm. The simplest way to explain that is; “reject God and He rejects you.”

In the modern-world, like in times past, consequences for rejecting God are grave, yet today they are often coined as bad luck. True believers know there is no such thing as bad luck. They also know actions, thoughts and intentions dictate final outcomes. Though most would rather not admit their guilt or error when life takes a turn for the worst, in the back of their mind, they have too. The conscience is a powerful condemning tool used to spiritually spank God’s disobedient children. Every adult at some point in life receives spiritual spankings. “Rejection is God’s way of getting our attention, He knows nobody wants to be ignored.”

Taking responsibility for one’s actions, decisions and thoughts is the first step to changing outcomes. Now doing this doesn’t mean there won’t be times of trouble or tribulation; instead it means when these times come, you will have the comfort of the Lord, as well as His wisdom, guidance and protection. In other words, He will get you through whatever it is, no matter how bad it seems.

Most of us have been there done that and might even be on our way back. The difference is, this time we know Who to turn too, Who to run to and Who to give it all too! This is how you avoid the only rejection that really counts, you accept the Lord as Savior in your life.  If you think rejection feels bad coming from people, you don’t even want to think about how you feel when God rejects you!

3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5 he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will– 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.  Ephesians 1:3-6 NIV

It’s Me O’ Lord


If somebody rubbed you the wrong way yesterday, or at anytime when you couldn’t let go of it, especially that certain family member, let it go today.

Remember, it should never be about you, them or me. If you believe, then this whole life must be about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And if you find yourself still irritated, about whatever it is you’re irritated about, then most likely you are the broken one. Tell God now, it’s you standing in the need of prayer; not your mother, your brother, sister, friend or co-worker. You should know, spiritually damaged people can’t fix broken souls, because they need healing themselves.

As difficult as it seems, and no matter how upset other people make you, “sometimes you just have to accept that there is still good in everyone.” You even have to prepare to dig real deep to find it. Whatever you do, don’t expect to find more than you own yourself, then you won’t be disappointed should their measure prove to be minuscule.

The important thing to remember is "God commands us to love one another as we love ourselves." What a wonderful world it would be if more people did just that. How beautiful would it be if people knew and understood that Love is an action word, and it's more valuable than gold. That said; who of you can argue that love is so precious it's worth having to dig down really deep sometimes to get it out. You need love in your heart to see the good in others.

Lord give me a clean heart so I can love unconditionally. Help me love those who prove difficult to love.

Let go and let God today. Whatever you do, never bring yesterday’s problems into today. “Today already has its own.” People will be with you, until the end of time, good ones, bad ones and sick ones. Neither will be perfect, nor are you. You can’t die for them, they can’t die for you and nobody can change someone who doesn’t want change. God’s on the mainline for that. During times like these, fall down on your knees, say to the Father;

“It’s me O’Lord, standing in the need of prayer, will you help me accept that there are things I’ll never understand nor figure out.” And Lord will you show me how to take the speck out of my- own- eye, before attempting to remove one from another person’s eye…. hallelujah!

Lord give me courage, wisdom, patience and peace, everywhere troublesome people linger, so that I may be a blessing in their lives as well as in mine. Remove any inkling of anger, resentment, jealousy, or ill-feelings that have taken hold of me. Amen

You Are Beautiful


530770_312313028834782_1888099908_n-510x398

You are beautiful,  wonderful and highly favored…..believe it and receive it.

If somebody close to you is on a mission to tear you down, you need only take them to the Lord in prayer.

“Remember His promise….He said I’ll be with you always.”

Also, it really doesn’t matter what other people think of you; what matters is what you think of yourself.

If you have a relationship with God, you know you are not a mistake nor are you a blundering fool.

Your short-comings can become fuel for success if you put God in the driver’s seat.  “Even precious stones have flaws, but those flaws enhance their beauty, because of Who created them!”
