Bearing FRUIT in 2018!

 The word for 2018 that stands out clear in my mind is that..."This is the year to avoid procrastination, moving into those desired callings that we have put on the back-burner.   Moving in the Holy Spirit will usher us into a season of fruition. In other words 2018 will become a year of fruition. as we stand firm and 'do' what God has called us to do." Even taking baby steps to get there determines the outcome of a great destiny! God may have ordained The Way...but we need to see it and walk in it without procrastination...

   To be honest, I really did not know the full meaning of fruition. What I found is three definitions that tie in on what I feel like God is saying to me, and I hope to everyone reading this:

1.  Attainment of anything desired; realization; accomplishment.

2.  Enjoyment, as of something attained or realized.

3.  State of bearing fruit.

     When we go ahead and do those things we are putting on the back-burner, that becomes a accomplishment that can …

Every Second Counts

I just wanted to take the time out right now, someone may be thinking about giving up. 

Please don't do that. Jesus loves you and died for your sins. 

IF you are desperate enough you will hold on to life. 

Help is on the way. 

Cry out to Jesus and HE will make a way where there seems to be no way. 

I have been in those dire situations that I needed to reach out so bad, I would be so stubborn to get  help right when I first needed it.

Do not allow anything to stand in the way of you getting the help you need. 

My heart goes out to you simply because I have been there and needed dire help.

It is at the end of the year, not the end of your life...

Sometimes deep within us we know the answers its not too late to do whatever you need to do...

"Time after time, over the period of life my mad desperation drove me into the arms of delivering arms of the loving Father. 

What are you desperate for? 

That is where you will find your true motive for living."


All this time...

I have never thought or ever conceived,

that You were just a whisper away.

You are the air that I breathe and the sun upon my back.

All the gentle ways you remind me that you are near

just blow my mind.

like the humble touch of Your hand

or Your strong enduring embrace

when the storm rages all around me

I do not have to be afraid.

But so many times I have felt Your touch

So many times I have pulled away

Yet You have patiently waited for me.

I draw near now my Master and Lord

I do not want to run and hide

Help me to abide...

as the vine 

is to the branch

Your Presence is so strong

your lovingkindness so true

You will never let me go...

Stop Or Go...

We can attempt to fill that missing void inside us with many, many things...but nothing can supremely satisfy our longing,hungering souls except Jesus Christ!!!

The things in this world are only a temporary fix.  Drugs, gambling, money, alcohol, food, sex! You name it it is out there to snag you up..."let us 'lay aside' every weight," and the sin which so easily ensnares us Hebrews 12:1."   

You will want more and more of  your temporary sin until you have gotten yourself into a strong addiction. A addiction is really in a sense serving a idol in our flesh. We cannot hid it and think we can get away from God, we will ultimately answer to HIM!!!  "O God, You know my foolishness; And my sins are not hidden from You. Psalms 69:5" 

"For I know of nothing against myself, yet I am not justified by this; but He who judges me is the Lord. 5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkne…

Nothing can Separate Us...

 No matter what you have gone through on this earth since the day you have been born - can rip you apart from the Father's heart. He has a vast supply of mercy and grace that reaches down to where we are at, and pulls us toward Him.

When we have lost that spark to live with no motivation to go forward, God has made a way for us. He desires us to stand strong, and dig deep and hold on to that hope even when all else seems to fail us. 

     I have had to do a bit of soul searching in my life to see where it is going.  During some parts of this journey...I have wanted to stop and  just not go any further.  I have attempted to abort my journey because some situations in my life have been too hard to handle.

     A lot of you-some may not-know I have struggled with mental illness on and off for many years. It hasn't been easy to make the decisions I have made, but I know that God has directed my path.

     I'm in such a place of peace and courage that I never could have imagined I …

Tis The Season...

Jesus is here at the very entrance, knocking on the very door of your heart.  Is there any reason within you that would not allow you to open up that door?  You can trust Him... He loves you with an everlasting lovekindness and desires to lavish His grace upon your life. He did not come to accuse or condemn you to hell...His blood flows free for you and me.  We can embrace that Cross. It is attainable if you just let Him be your Savior and Lord.

There is a lot of mixed feelings right now in the world all around us...I think if you watch the news you can get that info...instead I want to point and encourage you reading this to seek His righteousness right now.   

I pray for Jesus to renew and revive our joy in this holiday season...  

Can you find it in your heart to allow His Holy Spirit to visit you in a special way to use you in a supernatural way this year?  Let Him take control of those situations that have "brought on those bittersweet blues."  It's okay to grieve but …

Beyond Broke...

 I believe that there may be someone at the end of your rope. You do not think you have any reason to go on any further with your life...You have lost all hope and faith in your Creator. At one point it seemed as if you had it all, and you didn't think anything could topple you over but you were wrong. Here you are right in this moment... "sitting in the ashes" of a divorce, death, an illness, job loss,financial strain, etc.  It can be anything that has turned on you.  The hand of destruction has taken its toil on your soul... You come to the end of your rope...on your last penny...and can not take anymore.  You cannot handle the attacks and the enemy harassing you any longer. You do not have any fight left over...

     You may be wondering why you are still here in the first place, and you may not even want to live anymore.  You are seriously thinking of giving it all up, going back into the world's ways and worldly views.  You cannot find the strength to go on any f…

Generation of Joy Come Forth!!!!!

We have a epidemic of mental illness...Taking a pill to zone out, instead of drawing from the well of LIVING WATER!!! The JOY of the LORD is supposed to be our STRENGTH....

Isn't it time to have a JOY revival??? What is hindering us from experiencing the true Joy of the Lord and why?  Deliverance is ours in Christ for the taking...will you take possession of it or will you drown in your anxiety and depression???

Depression is a real reality kicker these days. Is JOY what you are lacking in your spiritual walk in the Lord...Joy is the EXACT opposite of depression!!! It can rob you of true happiness. Lethargy can kick in as well and you can feel miserable all your life if you allow it to take control...

Does it seem that nothing seems to make you happy. Have you ever prayed or asked yourself, "Where is the joy of the Lord?"

You have been saved from Hell fire rotting and burning torment forever and ever!!! That is not enough to give you joy?

I know one of the many fruits of the …

The Truth will set you Free!!!

At the exact point of salvation, YOU were GIVEN all the POWER and AUTHORITY of God you will ever need to contend with and resist, triumphing over the forces of darkness to defeat them with the power of the don't have to waste time trying work it up in your flesh...YOU ALREADY HAVE the ability to stomp out  the devil and his minions through Jesus' death and resurrection...The Gospel of Grace!!!

When He had disarmed the rulers and authorities [those supernatural forces of evil operating against us], He made a public example of them [exhibiting them as captives in His triumphal procession], having triumphed over them through the cross. Colossians 2:14-16 AMP

The devil would love to see your destruction.  This scripture is a big truth to some of  you...satan does NOT want you to know how to use the Gospel message to defeat him...He wants to run you over and ship you to the wrecking yard. He wants to beat you up and hurt you to the point that you do not care anymore about…

May YOU rest In GRACE ~ Truth for the Christian....

Christian, The WAR is hard is it not?. It can be very tough on us if you do not know the whole truth of the Gospel of Grace. I believe God wants us to come to the waters that Jesus provides for us.  At the same time GOD sent manna from heaven to strengthen us in the fight of faith.  In a dry and barren land there IS hope as the BATTLE is raging!!!  WE must go the CROSS! We must revisit the crucifixion!

We must come to know the truth that Jesus ultimately defeated our sins on the cross! I am not talking to a unbeliever, I am talking to those who missed the whole point of the gospel... I want to POINT you BACK to the CROSS.   Jesus died for our sins so WE DIED to our sins!!! Those sins we have struggled with for years have been crucified. Why are you still holding onto your sin? You are a new Creation!!!  Are you acting like it???  Or are you letting the DEVIL define you in your weak nature!! This message should give you strength. THe ultimate battle HAS BEEN WON! GO ahead …

8 Keys to Knowing God's Will For Your Life - Chris Russell

Hey readers, I pray you are having a great morning! I ran across this great article and I felt impressed to share it with you. It helped me to see things more clearly.


8 Keys to Knowing God’s Will For Your Life

When I was a young man, I seemed to continually wrestle with knowing God’s will for my life. I wanted more than anything to follow His plan. Interestingly, now that I’m “old” (currently 47 years old), I still wrestle with doing His will in my life. I have come to learn that this is not just something that a young person does early in life; it is a lifelong pursuit in order to stay in the exact center of His plan.

So, then, how can we know God’s plan for our lives? Over the past twenty-five years that I have bee…

Get Right, or Get Left!!!!

I know that the gospel message is simple but yet profound in all its glorious value. Jesus means the world to me, and I want you to get right with God before it is too late. I want to see you on that day I go to see the Father in Heaven...

Jesus was crucified on that cross and suffered horribly for you and me.  He was beaten and spat upon, and tortured beyond belief. Yet He went through it all for you and me to be free from bondage to the hell and the clutches of the devil.

He was not thinking of "Himself" one bit...HE didn't feel sorry or have a pity party for "himself" but took those beatings for you, and did not say a word. HE didn't cuss or crop a attitude because He did not like what was going on.....HE did not turn His gaze away from us....

JESUS took it all upon His body and soul. YOU have to know He was in great pain...yet He sacrificed it all for us. His body was broken beyond recognition.....for you and for me.

HE died on that cross. His lifeless body…


It has almost been two weeks that I felt the nudge of the Holy Spirit, felt like I was supposed to spend more time alone with God in prayer and reading the Bible.  I felt the impression I needed to spend less time on me and more time on my relationship with GOD.  One of  the first things I did was get off facebook... so I logged it off, and searched and found some really good Christian social sites. I have been posting there as well as spending more time with God, just being ALONE with HIM and doing some "heavy soul-searching" on my part "about" my relationship with HIM!

In "many ways" over the months my relationship with God has waned, I have backslid and fallen from the grace of God. I had lost sight of Jesus and not given HIM first place in many areas of my life. God doesn't want us to give up on Him. He created us, and HE wants a relationship with US first and foremost. 

I think of the verse in the bible, Matthew 6:33 that I have known my memory for…

Kick Worry Out of Your Mind.....

"Trust in the Lord with all our hearts..."  Proverbs 3:5 

     I believe the opposite of trust is worry  When we worry, we take on situations that only God is meant to handle, they become great weights and unnecessary yokes upon us.  We need to learn to release those things and trust in the Lord. I know by experience that is easier said than done.

     Our great God and Father created us with a supreme destiny, and the Lord Jesus is more than capable of handling all of our past, present and future.  In fact it was all nailed to that cross. We need not to carry our sins, we can let them go as we ask God to forgive us, and give ALL our hearts to Him 100%!   He did not create us to waste our life away with worrying.

     If you are continuously worrying, it robs your mind of peace and you lose sight of trust in the Fathers love and grace. Worry will attempt to take a 'backseat' in your mind, then rear its ugly head when you go through a rough time.   You have to demolish t…

Wrestling with The Devil.....

Like it or not, if  you are a Spirit-filled believer in Christ Jesus...You are in a spiritual war. The moment you made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life, you were girded up for battle with everything  you need to fight with to the finish defeating the devil and his minions!!!

God has given you the strength in Christ through the Holy Spirit to win the war. You see, the devil makes it his mission to make you "think" you are fighting a losing battle. On the contrary our sins died when Jesus died, and when Jesus was resurrected we too were resurrected we too were victorious triumphing over our enemies. You might be saying about right now, "I have no enemies."   Yes, you do! You have the devil and his demons to contend with!

We are in a spiritual wrestling match with Jesus Christ' arch-enemy...Lucifer himself, and he is not giving you any mercy!!!  If he is Jesus' enemy he is ours too as believers....The devil has brought out all the strong artillery...every …
