Tribulations


63912439-077e-4526-820e-0a792cb388562 Corinthians 5:14-15 New King James Version (NKJV)

14 For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; 15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

Philippians 4:7

and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Exodus 31:3

And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,

1 Chronicles 22:12

Only may the Lord give you wisdom and understanding, and give you charge concerning Israel, that you may keep the law of the Lord your God.

Job 12:13

“With Him are wisdom and strength, He has counsel and understanding.

Job 12:24

He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, And makes them wander in a pathless wilderness.

Christ didn’t have a normal journey in life, not any one of us do there is no normal. However Christ had the hardest. In his life he had to find a small group of people he truly could confide in these people were his friends who later became his deciples. On this journey we all get lost in our mistakes and falling short in sin. Though for Christ he had the knowledge that he was meant to die on the cross to save everyone in mankind and give the only thing he had to give, his very own life. As with any of us giving ourselves for some good can sometimes be hard and sometimes we don’t want to go through it alone and for Jesus that’s so many words underestimated of how hard his responsibilities were his biggest and toughest choice he had to make that he didn’t want to go through alone. Knowing he was going to die he wanted his closest friends, his decipels to go through it in support of what he had to endure. He wanted this time to be special for him as it would be his last time he had with them as his life would soon take all that of everyone and each of us for our salvation from sin which his decipels had yet to learn and understand. He wanted them to have understanding that would touch each of them in their own personal way by the relationships they shared with Jesus. That is what the father taught Jesus the best which is why he knew he was to die for the love of all of mankind to release them of their very own sins and wrongs they have traveled in the midst of their very own journey. Jesus and the fathers relationship were the closest relationship Jesus had. Though he wanted his special relationships to take part in a special way with him and not have to go through his hard East time alone. He asked each of them to come with him and be his support as any of us would with those closest in bond and trust with us. They agreed and went with him to be his support and be there for him however they fell asleep in the midst of Jesus time with his father and he still went through his toughest days alone as after they fell asleep they later denied knowing him and turned away from the close relationship they had once had. Sometimes amongst our very own lives we have these relationships as well where we’ve trusted someone a long time and they remove themselves from our lives turning away from us sometimes as if they had never known us and we fell betrayed and alone. Jesus had to feel this and knew it was only the beginning to the tribulations he would really have to endure. He had no true full understanding at first about the reasons of his father however he knew he couldn’t disrespect him and back out, that this was something that he must do for not only his father and himself but for all the human race. It was a very large responsibility and the father knew only he would be able to fully succeed in this quest and journey as any of us couldn’t. Though he had no true understanding he soon would learn. Right now in tribulations of our own lives we are all in this together going through something that none of us had any knowledge of and have to endure. Some of us feel as if we are going through this quarantine alone depending on the sick and non sick. There is question in struggle of not having any understanding. That’s how Jesus felt in his last days and last moments when he saw his closest to him betray all that they had gone through together. When our journey seems to be leading us nowhere we rely on the understanding of those closest to us and on our very own understanding and we find it a struggle to get through. In Jesus time he also did that as well with his relationship to his father and then with his own followers however they soon showed they weren’t there and his father was right that he had to go thru all alone to forgive all including his closest relationships. In 2 Corinthians it says as follows…

2 Corinthians 5:14-15 New King James Version (NKJV)

14 For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; 15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

He died to save all mankind from their own wrong doing and sin so that they may build a relationship with him and live for him sharing the news of his salvation with all they journey with in their very own life.

Philippians 4:7

and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Believing in a journey and relationship with Christ he promises to guard your life and lead your hearts in him.

Our father above, Jesus father spoke this in Exodus

Exodus 31:3

And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,

God the father has stated in his word that he filled Christ with his very own spirit, that of the Holy Spirit with the knowledge of the sacrifice he was aware of to his coming and knowledge of how tough that which he had to endure truly would be. However no one but him only had that knowledge. In our times right now if those who are believers have knowledge it is from following in Jesus footsteps like the deciples had with Jesus himself. We as believers have some knowledge of things happening now but anyone who is not a believer is clueless unless we help them to find the way as Jesus had in his very own journey. Not everyone will listen and hear some may even turn away and deny you as a believer and mock you along your journey just as what happened with Jesus. We sacrifice ourselves everyday in our own journeys trying to maintain the right and best choices even to confess the truth of Jesus very own story of salvation and accepting and showing in honesty. That journey in itself is not the easiest journey and we as believers realize that we are traveling the same kind of journey as Jesus had himself however he had the hardest of all our very own journeys. Yet not everyone has that knowledge and their understanding is limited.img_7348

1 Chronicles 22:12

Only may the Lord give you wisdom and understanding, and give you charge concerning Israel, that you may keep the law of the Lord your God.

Only the father and his word can give you a peace of mind with the wisdom and knowledge to follow in Jesus footsteps as he did with his very own son so that you may live a good life for him.

Job 12:13

“With Him are wisdom and strength, He has counsel and understanding.

Only with him will you truly find and know the knowledge of the truth.

Job 12:24

He takes away the understanding of the chiefs of the people of the earth, And makes them wander in a pathless wilderness.

Meaning that he takes away knowledge from the people of authority such as government and large mighty people leaving them in uncertain paths in the world itself and confusion of where they should follow.

Right now is the most important walk we’ve had to endure however it was written in God’s word and handed to us as knowledge. Many feel scared and lost and alone however we are fully in this together and closest to the father at our toughest tribulations so far in our journey as Christ was in his last days and last hours. God the father has told us this time would come when plagued and government shut down in knowledge and he did this to prove that he is here so that we’d turn to him and have a relationship with him as he had with his son because we are his most precious arts and he only wants us to understand that and his love that he and Jesus have for us. This is our time of finding ourselves in true worship and revival.img_6925

Trust Him With All Your Heart


God asks us to trust him in all we do and only him and no one else. To turn your heart to him honoring him in faith. He is our strength that keeps us grounded and our shield to all evil. He promises to always keep us safe and protected. He wants all our trust put in him. You can’t trust anyone any better than God. He will always be faithful to you while others will let you down and betray you and break in someway the trust you had. So trust God with all your heart and soul and spirit. He will always remain by your side never abandoning you or betraying you or walk away from you he will accept you in all you do even if he disagrees with your thoughts or actions.

Psalm 28:7 The Message (MSG)

Blessed be God—
he heard me praying.
He proved he’s on my side;
I’ve thrown my lot in with him.

Now I’m jumping for joy,
and shouting and singing my thanks to him.

Psalm 28:7 New Living Translation (NLT)

The Lord is my strength and shield.
I trust him with all my heart.
He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy.
I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.

Release Anxiety And Pray Instead


Philippians 4:6 New Living Translation (NLT)

6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.

In all God’s teachings he always tells us not to worry or be afraid. He wants us to pray to him with our needs and speak to him in relationship with him like a relationship between you and I. He wants us to ask and tell him all our needs and thoughts no matter what they are and pray about everything. He wants us to seek him and only him. To tell him what your needs are and thank him for all he has done for you which you may have already seen and received. He is not trying to scare us away or hurt us he is not of evil but instead he is of love and wants to warm our hearts in him.

Philippians 4:6-7 The Message (MSG)

6-7 Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.

Humble Yourselves And Turn From Sin


2 Chronicles 7:14 New Living Translation (NLT)

14 Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.

God asks his chosen to be in spirit with him and fervent in prayer only seeking him and repenting and turning away from sin and evil actions that he will hear anything we think or speak from heaven and he will forgive them of their ungodly walks and sin they have committed and he will replenish and heal the land. This verse speaks so many things with current situations going on now. It’s a straight forward command he is telling us and leading us to what we are doing wrong but that it can be changed if we turn away from rioting and looting and killing that you live in lifestyles of the ungodly. He is giving us a choice to repent and ask forgiveness and turn back to him and he’ll give back our lives and lands. You may have done wrong going against God before but you can be saved if you ask forgiveness. He hears our words and thoughts no matter where we are or what we’re doing. He is always ready to accept and love us we just have to allow him. The things going an in the world right now are not of him. They are acts of evil. They are making him angry. His wrath is called to happen before the second coming and this is all part of it, it’s all written in his word. However he is still trying to have that relationship with you and love you but you have to ask him and allow him to. He is not happy with things the way they are right now however you can still be saved. Riots, racism, looting and killing are not okay they are evil works of Satan. Our need is to spread love and acceptance to one another just as Christ did with us. It’s the way you’d want to be treated also. So turn away from the evil and ask God to forgive you and come into your life let go of the ungodly lifestyles holding you down. Pray fervently and study the word regularly and speak in conversation with God always. He is waiting for you and ready to have that relationship with you.

2 Chronicles 7:14-18 The Message (MSG)

God appeared to Solomon that very night and said, “I accept your prayer; yes, I have chosen this place as a temple for sacrifice, a house of worship. If I ever shut off the supply of rain from the skies or order the locusts to eat the crops or send a plague on my people, and my people, my God-defined people, respond by humbling themselves, praying, seeking my presence, and turning their backs on their wicked lives, I’ll be there ready for you: I’ll listen from heaven, forgive their sins, and restore their land to health. From now on I’m alert day and night to the prayers offered at this place. Believe me, I’ve chosen and sanctified this Temple that you have built: My Name is stamped on it forever; my eyes are on it and my heart in it always. As for you, if you live in my presence as your father David lived, pure in heart and action, living the life I’ve set out for you, attentively obedient to my guidance and judgments, then I’ll back your kingly rule over Israel—make it a sure thing on a sure foundation. The same covenant guarantee I gave to David your father I’m giving to you, namely, ‘You can count on always having a descendant on Israel’s throne.’

One In The Same- United As One


United as one no color the same

Not on religion named

Not all different in race

Seen in the eyes of faith

Not one eye closed and one eye open

We bleed the same

We breath the same air

With the same breath

All sight looks the same

No color In dominance

Our hearts all beat the same

maybe in different rhythm but still the same

Making us each unique

Yet still United’s one in the same

Each of us all the same

Boy or girl your still human

We are all united as one in color, race and humanity

Unique in our own way but all the same

Even the disabilities we may have can not separate us from the eyes of faith

No matter how hard you try to rearrange each of us and separate each

Seen in the eyes of faith we always remain the same

There is no difference

There is no hate

It’s seen in the face of faith

It’s called love

That’s the problem with those who hate

It’s not separation or difference

It’s they have not enough love

They may not know love

Spread the love

Help them feel the presence of God

Let them see through the eyes of faith

Let them see one color

One race

That we all are mankind

All in the same

United as one

Not one separate or different of the other

We are one in the same

Honor The Son


John 5:23-24 English Standard Version (ESV)

23 that all may honor the Son, just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him. 24 Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.

John 5:23-24 New Living Translation (NLT)

23 so that everyone will honor the Son, just as they honor the Father. Anyone who does not honor the Son is certainly not honoring the Father who sent him.

24 “I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.

John 5:23-24 New International Version (NIV)

23 that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him.

24 “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.

John 5:23-24 The Message (MSG)

20-23 “But you haven’t seen the half of it yet, for in the same way that the Father raises the dead and creates life, so does the Son. The Son gives life to anyone he chooses. Neither he nor the Father shuts anyone out. The Father handed all authority to judge over to the Son so that the Son will be honored equally with the Father. Anyone who dishonors the Son, dishonors the Father, for it was the Father’s decision to put the Son in the place of honor.

24 “It’s urgent that you listen carefully to this: Anyone here who believes what I am saying right now and aligns himself with the Father, who has in fact put me in charge, has at this very moment the real, lasting life and is no longer condemned to be an outsider. This person has taken a giant step from the world of the dead to the world of the living.

As it is taught to us to honor thy father and mother so it is also taught to us to honor the son Jesus Christ. Honor isn’t only a reward but a gift of respect as well. Those who dishonor the son also dishonor the father as well as dishonoring themselves. God shows honor by love to all men and honor of pride to all that believe in him. 24“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life. They’re sins will not haunt them or hinder them for they have been saved by God’s Grace and have killed the old self to bring birth to their new self. They have been shown honor by God. We can also be shown honor by God but doing what is right and by believing in his word and talking with him regularly. He hears our thoughts on every level. He won’t judge us or turn us away because of our race, color or behavior nor will he abandon us. We are forever his children each and everyone of us.

No man can change that or take that away that is God’s gift of honor. One of God’s greatest honors is love he teaches us to love one another as he has loved us.

24 “Anyone here who believes what I am saying right now and aligns himself with the Father, who has in fact put me in charge, has at this very moment the real, lasting life and is no longer condemned to be an outsider. This person has taken a giant step from the world of the dead to the world of the living.God accepts us no matter who we are, what we look like, how we act, we are his. He just requests nothing but love, honor, and respect

This is how we show honor to the son also showing honor to the father. Giving us new life in him. Giving us eternal life not of the law and works of the world.

Song Of The Nightingale


A lark is in the meadow
Sing a song of harmony
The wheat waves in the wind
The grain falling to the ground
Night peaks and falls
As the nightingale sings between the howling of the wolf
The breeze is cool
Summer love
A song of another kind
Makes a highlight into the night
She sees him from a distance
The pain he holds develops him so much more
Pale skinned and fair
He walks upon the lilies
Sunrise breaks and he comes alive
All will be alright
Night fall bringing darkness to the night
Cool air whistling past
Whispers in the wind as God says my name
I’m working on his term as silence falls around me
When you can’t speak and the words don’t come out when you try and the words come out wrong when the silence deafens the night captivating time
When your heart tries so hard to sing out your song
Though none can hear
Taking pain you let the silence of the night overtake the sanity you have left
For your voice is strong but the words fail as you try to speak and silence falls
With no voice
You can not sing
So you sit and listen to the nightingale’s song
It’s the only song you know
as talking you can not do
Shying away from all who pass you by
Sad eyes looking away
No voice is what you know
Though no one knows you
For your different and they don’t try
Sad eyes don’t lie
The speak the deepest words they never lie
The nightingale’s song is all that you know
She breaks the silence with her beauty
Speaking for you
When you can not
Mute is what you are familiar with
Tearing you down creating pain
Wishing other would understand and try
For the nightingale’s song speaks all for you
With the words you can not say
Drops of rain falling on your face
Washing all thoughts of doubt away
For you see the beauty deep within you of how different you are
Pretending to be what you can not
Torn into pieces you sit and cry
For your so misunderstood and mocked
But the song of the nightingale brings all those thoughts out and drys them out
Making you alive

A Soldier’s Creed


LivingWaterMinistries

Blood and sand streak my face

My heart beats fast against my chest

While my ghosts haunt me both day and night

Never letting me to my rest

I am a Soldier

My soul rests upon the land

I fight for lives and for your freedom

Praying up my thoughts to God that he lead me the way that’s best

Here I walk in faith upon the sands of time

I do not walk alone

For he walks with me always and forever to the very end

He never lets me go from his sights or protection

Here I walk beside him walking in the sand

I do not stand alone

For the Angels cover me as I fight the battles for your land and home

I will trust upon His lead

For I am a soldier in fights for freedoms and protection of all humanity and country

I do…

A Soldier’s Dream


He chose a journey all his own

Journeying our to the deep unknown

A lost soul filled in fear for new comings and new beginnings

Silent and kept to himself

he stay until day break

and dawn rise

Until he learned to open up and trust

He never knew how to pray

He never knew how to trust until sorrows broke his paths and way

His weakness pulling him deep within

Until he began to pray he never knew trust and faith

He never knew his strength remained

Life stricken I prayed to him to see me through

Taking away all my sorrow and shame I prayed for the gift of strength to remain in grace

He knows not of the storm for he is the storm pulling us through what blocks our ways

He became our hiding place

For broken hearts that seek the good

They would not be broken seeking heaven

Had the world held their joy

Once lost souls

Made forever whole

Loosing the weak and gaining strength

Once walking a journey all his own

Dies with honor from nations everywhere unlisted by names

No longer lost

Found by honor

In God whom saves

Honor in services he had to train and learn

Faith he’d never known

Death that may have taken him so suddenly

In Faith he died believing and free

Serving God and country

Now looking down with these words of praise still as he would believe saying…

Do not stand over my grave and weep

I’m forever a part of history

I’m in your memories forever long

Be proud of me and praise Him who trained me in all I knew

Once bonded to fear and suffering soul

I was found and given honor in him above

Given my own freedoms

After I helped gain freedom for you

Don’t be sad for I am free and ecstatic like never before

Send praises of thanks up to him for me

This is beauty you can never imagine on your own

Don’t stand over my grave and weep

Be proud of me and happy for me

I know I am not there

I don’t sleep

I do not fear my restlessness I’ve released

I am the gentle autumn rain

Blowing across your face in the frail wind of the autumn’s breeze

Hush now friend

I may be silent now

But I am with you

morning,day and night

No need for sleep

Faith is what I need now

He who covers me within his wings

keeping me strong and safe

Do not stand over my grave and weep

Fill yourself with praise

I am free

I have been saved

Do not cry for I have not gone away

Do not walk away in sorrow

I have met a better tomorrow

For today is mine

Yesterday was my journey into faith

But now you need to see and believe

Do not stand there and cry

For even though I have left I have not died

I am forever free with He who saved me

Forever in eternity

I chose this journey

It was my story that I made

Go and tell of all my historic memories

Do not be in shame

It’s still me

I still remain the same

In your memories is now my faith journey

Honor me

Just as Christ and you are free

Realize I am now also free

Do not cry over me

I am your memories and your dreams

I have not died and forever live on a new life

Muddy Waters, Walk Of Faith


Water rising

Currents turning

White tides churning

Muddy water getting strong

Holding strong to faith that you’re safe and sturdy in the rushing muddy mess

Lifting step by step you carry on

Known treachery could deem at any time

In the muddy rush you walk

Praying every step you take

Jesus once calmed and parted waters so on you lead in faith and believe

Knowing all things are possible in him

That he tells you do not fear

You hold your head high and believe that you are safe among the obstacle ahead

The rains lift

The sun shines bright as heaven

The water begins to recede

Knowing you held strong to faith

That your alive and well despite the mucky mess

Faith over fear is what you know best

You know you could have drowned in the muddy mess

But you stayed strong and faced on instead

God leading you each step of the way while he carried you on the toughest snags you crossed

Faith over fear God tells us in his word

And trusting that in muddy waters full of barreling hurtles is tough alone

But trusting the rushing waters to let you through is even harder as it’s unknown

Yet unknown isn’t always bad

For in sometime you come out on the other side no lover living in fear

Facing your faith upfront head on

If you focus and let God lead the way

He’ll open the closed gates where you can’t see your way even on the brightest day
