When You Think You Can't Take It Anymore

Several hardships at one time pushes you to your limit. If it’s one thing, you could handle it. But several at one time! You start your day with car trouble and as the day progresses there's child issues, spouse issues, job issues, money issue, when will it stop?  It's gang-up-on you day. You try to handle one at a time but then they snowball into one big heap of a mess. It's more than you can handle. When I get to that point, I get in my car, roll up my windows and scream at the top of my lungs, while driving down the highway. I look like some mad woman racing down the road yelling. Well, that’s how I relieve the pressure from my troubles.   Yep, I scream until I can't scream anymore. I get out all of my anxiety. No longer am I overwhelmed.I feel bad afterwards. I realize what I didn't do. I didn't take that problem to God.  He’s there waiting for me to ask for help.What do I do? I tried to handle it alone. Guess what? Problem still there. 
I should have gone…

A Better Day

Today is going to be a great day! You'll see.  Waking up has made it a productive. To have a better day,  you will need to go shopping for a few things.  This is going to be fun. As a matter of fact, you won't need any money.  When you can have a great day without money, that kind of excitement screams bright future. I see your mind twirling.  To have a better day, start with prayer. There's nothing like a talk with the Master before your stressful day begins.  He is such a great listener. By the time you're all done talking, and He done granting your prayer requests, you're ready to conqueror the world.  Put on that outfit that screams victory--the Armor of God. Afterwards, pack a bag filled with love for those you know will annoy you when you get to work. Plus, don't forget your peace slippers. As with any day, the scales of life will produce a situation where you will need lots of peace, especially when driving to work. There are drivers out there that will…

I'm Hanging In There

At the Publix with groceries on the counter, I asked the teller how was her day. She said, “I’m hanging in there.”
She isn’t the only person that has given me that answer. If you’re making that statement, remember you are doing better than just “hanging in there.” You’re a conqueror in Christ.You’re not defeated.Jesus didn’t die on the cross for you to “just be making it.” He died for you to be victorious! You’re successful in whatever situation you find yourself.God’s grace is sufficient (1 Corinthians 12:9). The scripture says, “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world” (1 John 5:4). If you are a Child of the Most High King, you’re an overcomer. Jesus gave his life for you to live a successful life—not to just hang in there. Making that statement you’re saying you Jesus isn’t in your life. You’re also saying God isn’t doing anything for you? What if the Creator took a day off, where would you truly be?
Perhaps you say “hanging in there” to not complain or not share your tro…

Trust God

Proverbs 3:5-6: Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight (NIV).

“Police, Police, a young man stole my bike.”Minutes earlier the gentleman stops at the local store. Thirsty from the summer heat, he decides to get a drink.Dismounting his bike, a kind young man greets him with a smile and offers to watch the bike. Grateful for the offer, the gentleman hands over the bike.He enters the store. On returning, the bike and young man had vanished. The gentleman had a good heart, but he had misplaced trust.
Trust in the Lord is paramount (Hebrews 11:6). Life cannot be maneuver through our wisdom, we need the wisdom of the Savior.He alone can handle our life cycle issues.A fulfill and successful life with Jesus comes through obedience and surrender. The Lord then guides us into an everlasting peace despite difficulties and hindrances.
The next time you are dealing with out-of-control finances, …

Still Standing!

Satan is out to get you by any means necessary. What are you going to do? Will you bow down to his commands or stand and fight? It’s your soul he wants. 2 Corinthians 4:7 says you have a treasure in you.Your soul is so special that the Word of God calls it a treasure. This treasure is rooted in God’s power.Although you are engulfed with troubles from on the outside (job, family, money) and troubles within (fear, worry, anxiety), you are not forsaken, cast down or destroyed. You are still standing despite all you’ve gone through. Satan can’t take you down because you are a child of God. The best he can do is trick you into sinning. This is why you have to be very careful and not play with sin. Don’t ride close to the edge of life just to see how close you get without going over. This is the trick of the devil. He is tricking you into giving over your soul.Be careful with fame, fortune and power. Those things aren’t evil in themselves, but Satan will use them to move you from your posit…

I Need You

God is with us way before we need Him. I was coming from Publix supermarket. I stopped briefly at the red light yelling at my kids about money.You want, want, want and not understand how money is made.Anyways, I proceeded to drive through the red light. Another car was coming, but, the person wasn't in a hurry getting where he was going. I heard faint horns blowing in the distant.I looked up as I was traveling  directly under the red light and realized what a God I serve! I immediately thanked Him for watching over me. If you are anything like me, which I am working on, you call out to God when there is a immediate need. Prayers come out something like, “God, you know me. I really need you right now.” What if God treated you like you treat Him and answered when He felt like it.When it’s convenient, you pray. Prayer is supposed be about having a relationship with God. It's constant communica.  How your relationship with the Father? Just remember, God is not a vending machine wh…
