Let Humans be Humans

When I woke up today the scripture in Mark chapter 12:31 was in my heart-

31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

When I was praying God told me that we must be reminded that everyone on this earth has had good days, bad days, made mistakes, accomplished something, had a friend, lost a friend, the list can go on and on. But the point is that despite our choices, actions, or lifestyle we as human beings are more alike than different. And we as the people of God have a responsibility to love instead of dehumanizing.

If we are honest, we are quick to justify then forgive ourselves, but can we say the same for our neighbor?  Let’s practice LIVING the Word of God today.  I can know you are a thief and still genuinely care about you getting to know Christ and His love. Will I leave my purse around you…? NO… but I can still be there for you and pray for you. Our differences shouldn’t be a barricade between Gods love and intention for our neighbor. We can do better body of Christ… we Will do better. Peace

What do you see #vision

Every morning you and I have the opportunity to wake up to stress and anguish or expectation and possibility!  The choice is yours, with the life God gives you an incomparable gift called POSSIBILITY. You and I have the opportunity today to choose Joy over frustration, Peace over anxiety, Longsuffering over a short temper, Kindness over curse words, Love over hatred.  But you have to answer the question ” What do you see?” If you choose negativity, you’ll receive negativity.

In the word of God it is said like this Joshua 24:15- Choose ye this day who ye will serve! Through our thoughts, words, and vision for the day, we give power to what we want out of our life. Choose today as the first of many where you see greatness, prosperity, and abundance in your life. Not just for tangible items but of love, peace, and wellbeing. Selah

#jonathanmcrenolds- ” I dont want to be EMPTY”

There are some worship experiences that I can not help but post over and over again. So many of us as Christians privately cry out to God to keep our focus on Him so that we can become everything that God wants us to be… but inside we are broken. The world wants us to believe that there is a pain that comes with brokenness, a shame that is enveloped in brokenness, but I’m here to tell you that the devil is a LIE. The word of God says broken is beautiful, and when we abide in God, in a place no one has to know about… Psalms 91 calls it a “secret” place. Then that brokenness, ugliness, un-Christian likeness, can be made whole and beautiful! We all need calibrating in our lives; no one is without fixing and asking for forgiveness.. so with this worship, I want to help someone release themselves from the pressure we sometimes carry in life. Enjoy

How do I become a person who prays? #keepitreal

Too many times in our life, situations pile up like five o clock traffic, and while we’re in the midst of feeling stuck and aggravated, we do what comes naturally to us. Call a friend, scroll twitter, facebook or other social media. So today I want to talk to you about making prayer a natural reaction to life. Just like any habit, prayer is something you work at until your muscle memory defaults to prayer. You can train your thoughts to be on God when things are happening in your life. How? Start with 5 minutes a day; there is an amazing prayer app called “ the prayer app” that has tons of prayers for every occasion. Most of the prayers are less than 2  minutes long, download the app (it’s free) and find five minutes of your day to stop and pray. It has been said that it takes 21 days to create a habit, so if you can commit today to taking 5 minutes to pray for 21 days, I guarantee your life will never be the same. Let me know if you can commit 5 Minutes to pray for 21 days!

Peace

Work for it!

The statement “you don’t get something for nothing” is beyond true, it’s a winner’s mentality. The bible uses the analogy of a farmer planting a seed then reaping a harvest. When you look at your life, if it’s not what you want it to be, evaluate the seeds being planted. If you want to be an entrepreneur, are you taking small steps towards owning your business? If you would like to be a writer have you enrolled in a class to learn how to effectively convey your message?

No matter what it is that you want in life, it will require of you. Make a plan for your future, then intentionally run towards it. I guarantee there will be struggle, but after enduring you will march into a world where your life become your wildest dream.

What do you Eat?

Many times when you have an ailment in your body and you can’t explain how it came to be, a doctor asks you to make a list of the things you eat. The concept is that you are putting something into your body that is harming you because there is no sign of destruction from the inside. A list allows the doctor to see your habits, and what you have been feeding your body, so that he can then pinpoint what is going wrong.

Today, if something is ailing you in your life, I ask… what are you eating? If you made a list of all the conversations, television, radio, friendship, and relationships you have subjected yourself to, could you put your finger on what’s hurting you the most?  Sometimes we think God is doing something to us or life has an agenda against us when that’s not true! Some of the issues we face is because we allow it into our life. We have to be careful what we eat ladies and gentlemen. God has made us in such a beautifully courageous way, but it is our responsibility to aid this flesh with the best nutrients possible. What is the best? Prayer time, positive television, uplifting friends, relationships that push you and don’t pull you down. You are in control of what occupies you mind and your heart, so it may be time to get on a spiritual diet. Take back the control and cut out whats hurting you.

Let’s throw out the toxins today! Peace

Quality Sleep

A little tip I learned while working with a psychologist was to make a to do list at the end of the day so that I could enjoy a more serene slumber. How…Write down all the things you would like to accomplish, so that when you put head to pillow your thoughts will not be jam-packed with tasks.

What makes this tip effective? To-do lists presents a level of accomplishment, every time you think of what needs to be done the next day, tell yourself that you already addressed it in the to do list, then move on. We have enough baggage during the day, you deserve to have a peaceful sleep. It’s time we take a strong hold on our time. The bible tells us to cast our cares upon a God who doesn’t sleep or slumber. We accomplish nothing by allowing issues and tasks run rapid in our thoughts day and night. Write them down and put them away so that you can truly appreciate sweet dreams.

The truth in Destiny…

The question the world inquires is: how can I sit at the table of fulfillment and destiny? In order to accurately answer this question, we fist have to establish a truth. The error in finding destiny is that most of us are looking for the wrong thing. We aspire to gain, when life’s fulfillment comes when you learn to give. What do you have to give this generation, your community, your home? That is your purpose, that is your gift.

One lie the devil sells is that your goal, dreams, and aspirations will make you happy…will bring value to life, or will fix all of your problems. But the truth is that in achieving a goal or dream, you and I open a new door of opportunity, vision, and work. You stop working for the dream and begin working in the dream. Life will not become a vacation; it will set you on a destination that changes the world around you; and that my friend is an entirely new level of work. A work that starts on the inside and branches out onto the nations.

Become free, stop looking for the leprechaun at the end of the rainbow and find out how to create a rainbow of your own; Filled with colors, dimensions, and gold that people rarely see and spend their whole life running after. Prodigious freedom is seeing past the darkness of where you are to run toward the source of true light. Peace

Are you drowning?

With schedules and to-do lists, sometimes life can be a ball and chain pulling us to the bottom of an endless ocean. Every day presents another goal, another task; sometimes it can make us feel like were drowning! When the water seems to rise from our knees to our neck… its time for change. When are you going let God orchestrate the beauty that can potentially be made out of your life? You have been in control long enough. When you look around, do you see water leaking from your friendships, work, relationships? If you are constantly seeing leaks in your ship, it’s a sign that your foundation needs work. Before you need to be rescued, turn the control over to the only entity capable of handling your life… God. peace.
