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…

Smile And Make Someone Day

I have noticed more and more people smile less. I said good morning to a guy at work and his response was, "Don't tell me how to have my morning."  Maybe it's the stress of life. Maybe he had to place his goals on the back burner because of life issues. How can we get more people to smile again?  Smiles have disappeared and are replaced with frowns and sadness. We can make a difference, if each of us go back to the basic and show care and concern for our fellow man. I assure you smiles will return. Let's get back to showing the love of Christ to others.  Too many people are holding burdens. There's money issues, husband issues, children issues, job issues, car issues, insurance issues, I don't need to go on.  This day, smile at someone. It may be just the thing that person needs to make it through the day. The guy at work could have had a lot on his mind so I am going to say good morning again, but this time, I'm going to smile and let him know it ge…

Understand It Better By and By

Funny how life has a way of showing you what you’re made of.  When adversity hits, what you say you wouldn't do becomes easier to do.  When the rubber meets the road, yes! you do the unthinkable.  Let's say you have a house fire and on the second floor is your baby and mom. You can only save one, which would it be? I've heard many say they would grab the baby since mom has been around a long time. I couldn't say.  I'm not in that situation right now.  There's no way to know what to do until tragedy hits.  Some can handle atrocities, whereas; other have no clue how to maneuver suffering nor know why hardship occurs.  Stop trying to figure out why hardships happens--only the Father knows.  He won't have you guessing long. 

    The underlining reason at the end of your trials gives away the mystery. Experiencing hardship isn't fun but you will come out with more insight than ever before.  Instead of getting angry with God regarding your circumstance, ex…

Sabotage

It’s those times when you do the wrong thing for the right reason you get caught. Those moments catch you off guard. It almost happened to me. While going out the door, a thought came to me to take my gun. I figured after the boys’ baseball game, I would go to the gun range.Here’s the deal, the baseball game was on base. The base has a strict rule about bring artillery on its grounds.To ensure everyone adheres to the rule, security police checks cars as a preventive measures. Thus far, my car hasn’t been checked—yet. Satan whispered in my ear to take my gun with me. Security police won’t pull me over. Besides, it would take me 45 minutes to go back home to pick it up after the game. If I bring it, I can save gas and time. Now, just because that sound good in my head doesn’t mean the scene would play out that way. I felt like I was being setup.
Someone else in the Bible was setup like this: Judas. What made him think betraying the Son of God was a good thing? It must have sound good in…

Family Style Dining

Remember days of old, where family style dining was popular. Everyone gather around the table on those special occasions holding hands and giving thanks to God for the family.  That scene reminds me of the television show, “The Waltons.”  A family of ten jelled together through misfortune, love, and hope around the kitchen table. I never experienced family style dining until I had children of my own. I love it! At dinnertime, we share our emotions, our wants, and our faults. We become one during our meal.  
       What would family style dining would be like if we brought a little Heaven to our table.
Imagine elegantly set China place settings before each family member.  Everyone around the table all dressed up. A large centerpiece of roses in the middle of the table.  Can you see it?   Someone would begin by saying, “please pass me hope,” whereas another would ask for “mercy.”  “I’ll take a little forgiveness, please.”  Wow! What a meal!
        Grab yourself a bowl from God’s family st…

The Rain

There is something about rain. It is soothing. Therapists play relaxing sounds of rain during sessions. It calms the mind.  On my way to church,  a drizzle of rain hit my windshield.The sky was dark and gloomy.  I noticed above the clouds the sun shining regardless of its surroundings.Troubles in your life mimics the dark clouds and the sun represents the Son of God shining in your life (2 Samuel 23:4).The Old Testament speaks of rain in the aspect that God gives and withholds rain, which is a sign of God’s favor or disfavor: Joel 2:23; Job 29:23; Jerm 3:3. Who tips the water-jars of Heaven (Job 38:37)? Who gives the rain in it season (Jeremiah 5:24)? Who sends an abundance of rain when needed (Psalm 68:9)? It’s not just the presence and absence of rain that’s important but the timing. God provides what you need at the right time:
Rain teaches us:
·Wait for the Father to fight your battles, like you wait on rain during a draught (Job 29:23).
·Rain comes from Heaven with a purpose--to s…
