My Cry


My soul is longing for you Lord. I need more of you in my life and less of me. Move me out the way Lord. I just want to be your obedient servant. You are so worthy of Praise and Honor and so much more than I can give, but God I will give you all that I have. What you have given me I give back to you. Use me how you see fit God. Give me the boldness to do the things you have called me to do. I am so in love with you. There is a blazing fire in my belly. I don’t want the fire to be quenched. I want it to blaze for all eternity. I want to walk hand in hand with you. Stay in your presence that is where I belong. My heart worships you so loudly Lord. I get overwhelmed by you and your presence. But I want more of you; I can never get enough Holy Father. I can’t get enough of you, you are my beloved and I am yours. Mold me into who you want me to be. You are so beautiful to me. I feel like Mary when she came into the room and broke the alabaster box over your feet and cleaned them with her tears and dried your feet with her hair and anointed you. I just want to sit at your feet and worship you with all that I have and all I am. I just want to show you how thankful I am and how much I truly love you. Even if my whole earthly world crumbled I would never deny you, I would still serve you. I can not lie, my flesh would hurt and be weak but my spirit couldn’t toss you out. You have done so much for me whether I knew it or not. I can never forget what you did for me.

Hungry…What Kind Of Hungry Are You?


I am sure that we all know what it feels like when we are hungry. When we feel that hunger we do whatever it takes to satisfy that hunger. Let’s look at the word hungry for a minute. Hungry means having a desire,craving,or need for.Some more meaning are strongly or eagerly desirous, lacking needful or desirable elements, aggressively ambitious or competitive. This can be applied to the Spirit. God wants us to be absolutely hungry for Him. He wants us to seek and do whatever it takes to get more of Him in us,filling us up. We should strive to always be hungry for God and push ourselves to be filled more and more with Him and His ways.

In Psalm 34:8 it says, ” O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. ” In this scripture it states that we have to TASTE and see that the Lord is good, which implies that we were hungry and the only way to cure hunger is to eat. So, we are to seek Him. The ways we are to seek Him is in prayer, reading His Word(The Bible), and fasting. This is how we will taste and see that the Lord is good.

In Psalm 107:5 it says, ” Hungry and thirsty, their souls fainted in them.” Fainted means lacking strength, clarity,boldness,or courage. This is another reason we have to seek God and He will feed us who are hungry and fill us up and make us strong in Him and His Ways.

In Psalm 107:9 it says,”For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.” Goodness means state or quality of being good, moral excellence, virtue,kindly feeling,kindness,or generosity. Our souls long for the things of God. We were created in His image which is Spirit. We were created to have fellowship with Him daily.
In Psalm 34:10 it says,” The young lions do lack,and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.”When we first got saved we had a desire and hunger for God unlike anything we had experienced. We lacked the knowledge and strength that God would give us from seeking Him. It was something that we had to walk into, it didn’t just happen. If we seek God we won’t desire just things but the things of God no matter how pleasing they may seem.

In Luke 1:53 it says,”He hath filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he hath sent empty away.” There are people that call themselves seeking God but it is just a show and they won’t be rewarded or filled with the goodness of God. Those who truly seek after Him will receive the good things He has to offer them. He loves to see the devotion of His people to Him. God loves to be exalted above everything and that is how it should be.

There are a lot of souls out there that are hungry for God and don’t even know it. They know they are searching for something and haven’t figured out that it is God. That is why us as the “church” or “body” are to be out doing things and telling people about the God that we love and hunger after. People should see the hunger that we have for God and it should just be contagious. We should be showing them how to fill up that hunger with Him and not the things that please our flesh. Then there are those of you who have become complacent and have allowed that hunger to pretty much die out. You have killed it and your Spirit is suffocating. You need a good shaking to make you hungry again.

Just think about how privileged we are here in this country. We can openly serve God and most people try to hide or suffocate the God in us. They say to themselves it is okay to be a Christian and serve God openly on Sunday and at church but not during the week or out in public, people might talk about me and not like me. This is a lot of people’s mentality today. In other countries they can be killed for talking about God, praying,meeting at an underground church, or having a Bible, these are all things that most of us take for granite. Those people have a hunger for God and they don’t let anything stop them from being filled up with God. They have a true passion and desire for God and His Ways. We should all get to that place.

If your married, you remember when you first met your spouse, that you desired to spend all your time, energy, effort, and love with them and studying them. We should be experiencing the same things for God. We can always give God more, even if you think you have given it all to Him. I can assure you there is something or someplace in your life that He wants you to give Him. We are to be so hungry for God and His ways that we surrender our ways and thoughts and take on His.

Word Of The Lord 12-9-10


Come to the place that I want you in says the Lord. Let your light shine brightly like never before. So that all may know that I am God and I am in you. They will see the Mighty Presence of Me in you. You have a Compassionate Spirit in you, it’s the Spirit of Me that I have placed in you to show love to all who are near you and to those who just hear you. Things will break off of the ones you pray for and their lives will be truly touched. Remember that I am the Lord your God and I can do anything NOTHING is too Big for me. Just call on Me and Believe.

Plant Your Roots Deep


The definition of root is (botany) the usually underground organ that lacks buds or leaves or nodes; absorbs water and mineral salts; usually it anchors the plant to the ground.

What do roots do? They grab the soil and hang on or dig in and won’t let go.  They keep going deeper and deeper seeking  better nutrients. We should be like the roots. Christ  is that soil and we need to plant our roots deep in the soil so that we can’t be removed.  The deeper we are in Christ or seek after Him the better nutrients we get out of the Word and from Him. It is a never ending process. We must continue to grow as the roots do. If we stop we will die off and be pulled out just like a plant that roots have died.

There are three major functions of roots:

1) absorption of water and inorganic nutrients

2) anchoring of the plant body to the ground

3) storage of food and nutrients.

Here are the 3 ways we can relate to the roots:

1) Accept Jesus in our hearts and absorb  Him and His Word ( He is the Living Water)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2) Much fasting …

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

… and much prayer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3)Reading , Studying, and Memorizing  the Bible ( the Word of God)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Colossians 2:6-15 (NLT)

6And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him.

7Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.

8Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ.

9For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body.

10So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority.

11When you came to Christ, you were “circumcised,” but not by a physical procedure. Christ performed a spiritual circumcision—the cutting away of your sinful nature.

12For you were buried with Christ when you were baptized. And with him you were raised to new life because you trusted the mighty power of God, who raised Christ from the dead.

13You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins.

14He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.

15In this way, he disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross.

How Is Your Relationship?


At some point you will get to a place when you realize that God has everything that you could ever want or need. If we continue not to serve Him, He will take away everything ( anything that keeps us from serving Him). God will allow us to be humiliated and broken down for us to realize that we must be humble and loyal to Him. For He is above everything. We also must realize that we need God and we need to turn back to Him(or to Him if you have never been saved/born again). God will try to woo us again because He loves us and wants us. When we do turn back to Him, we are renewed and freed.We at that point chose to only serve God. He will make sure He protects us as long as we chose to follow Him and not make any other gods. He will give us(His Bride) good things, for God chose us,He planted us, and He will form and love us. We can only truly be God’s people when He is the ONLY ONE for us and the ONLY ONE we serve. This is a relationship between us and God not just a religion or club or ritual. Think about if you are serving God. If you are serving Him ask yourself this question, “Are you truly giving it your all ?”.

Hosea 2:1-23(NLT)

1“In that day you will call your brothers Ammi—‘My people.’ And you will call your sisters Ruhamah—‘The ones I love.

2“But now bring charges against Israel—your mother—for she is no longer my wife,and I am no longer her husband.Tell her to remove the prostitute’s makeup from her face and the clothing that exposes her breasts.

3Otherwise, I will strip her as naked as she was on the day she was born.I will leave her to die of thirst,as in a dry and barren wilderness.

4And I will not love her children,for they were conceived in prostitution.

5Their mother is a shameless prostitute and became pregnant in a shameful way.She said, ‘I’ll run after other lovers and sell myself to them for food and water,for clothing of wool and linen,and for olive oil and drinks.’

6“For this reason I will fence her in with thorn bushes.I will block her path with a wall to make her lose her way.

7When she runs after her lovers,she won’t be able to catch them.She will search for them but not find them.Then she will think,‘I might as well return to my husband,for I was better off with him than I am now.’

8She doesn’t realize it was I who gave her everything she has—the grain, the new wine, the olive oil;I even gave her silver and gold.But she gave all my gifts to Baal.

9“But now I will take back the ripened grain and new wine I generously provided each harvest season.I will take away the wool and linen clothing I gave her to cover her nakedness.

10I will strip her naked in public,while all her lovers look on.No one will be able to rescue her from my hands.

11I will put an end to her annual festivals,her new moon celebrations, and her Sabbath days—all her appointed festivals.

12I will destroy her grapevines and fig trees,things she claims her lovers gave her.I will let them grow into tangled thickets,where only wild animals will eat the fruit.

13I will punish her for all those times when she burned incense to her images of Baal,when she put on her earrings and jewels and went out to look for her lovers but forgot all about me,”says the Lord.

14“But then I will win her back once again.I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her there.

15I will return her vineyards to her and transform the Valley of Trouble into a gateway of hope.She will give herself to me there,as she did long ago when she was young,when I freed her from her captivity in Egypt.

16When that day comes,” says the Lord,“you will call me ‘my husband’ instead of ‘my master.’

17O Israel, I will wipe the many names of Baal from your lips,and you will never mention them again.

18On that day I will make a covenant with all the wild animals and the birds of the sky and the animals that scurry along the ground so they will not harm you.I will remove all weapons of war from the land,all swords and bows,so you can live unafraid in peace and safety.

19I will make you my wife forever,showing you righteousness and justice, unfailing love and compassion.

20I will be faithful to you and make you mine,and you will finally know me as the Lord.

21“In that day, I will answer,”says the Lord.“I will answer the sky as it pleads for clouds.And the sky will answer the earth with rain.

22Then the earth will answer the thirsty cries of the grain, the grapevines, and the olive trees.And they in turn will answer,‘Jezreel’—‘God plants!’

23At that time I will plant a crop of Israelites and raise them for myself.I will show love to those I called ‘Not loved.’ And to those I called ‘Not my people,’I will say, ‘Now you are my people.’And they will reply, ‘You are our God!’”

How Is Your Line?


The Lord is angry at His people. He desires more of them and they give Him less. God‘s people are turning their backs on Him. We should strive daily to get more of God in us and less of us. We should strive to have the highest relationship with God. God is angry that His people have let the devil slip in and take a hold on them. Telling them “Oh, this is alright to read or watch because it’s not real and you know it’s pretend, there’s no harm in it”. But yes,there is  God told us to cut ourselves off from the things of this world and focus on Him and heavenly things. (colossians3:2) “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” The church(which is us Christians)have let God down in a big way. We have put stuff up between us and God. This has made it difficult for a true powerful connection. There are knots,kinks, and cuts in our line to God, if we are doing the things that we shouldn’t. The devil is cunning you see. He figures if he can trick or blind the church (the Christians) and get us to accept things that are witchcraft and demonic and play it off like it is nothing. Then, it won’t bother us and our conscience to continue in these footsteps until we wake up and we are totally lost with the rest of the world. We are to be Christ-like. Christ didn’t have time to do anything but the will of His Father(God).Which was to share the Word of God with everyone. We have the same power and authority as Jesus did (if we are true born again believers). Because, He lives in us and He said greater things than these will you do. The reason we can’t is because of US.  We have beat ourselves out of the power of God. We should be out doing signs, wonders, and miracles. But, we have allowed the devil to blind us and pin us down and say,” that’s  not real, that kind of stuff don’t happen today”. Well, the devil is a lie. Because, my God has and never will lie. It is just up to us to get the old line to God ripped out and put in a fresh new sturdy one, also to put guards up around it, so it remains pure. We need to stop living how we want to live and live how God wants us to live! Anything that we put before God is wrong! It could be anything such as: food, clothes, phones, internet, books, TV,friends,family, boyfriend or  girlfriend, sports, spouses, kids, or other things.

In Colossians 3:1-10(NLT) it says:

1Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand.

2Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.

3For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God.

4And when Christ, who is youra life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory.

5So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don’t be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world.

6Because of these sins, the anger of God is coming.

7You used to do these things when your life was still part of this world.

8But now is the time to get rid of anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander, and dirty language.

9Don’t lie to each other, for you have stripped off your old sinful nature and all its wicked deeds.

10Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.
