And especially to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for his gift of the ULTIMATE freedom...my salvation and place in heaven.

the weapons of our warfare are NOT carnal. 2 Cor 10:14 we are in a war.
Don't get offended. Get a grip..you are a flawed human being.
All the answers to what we need are found in the Word of God.
Why is it so hard to think right? Because we have two natures...2 Cor 5:17 we get a new nature in the depths of our spirit. Everything you got when you got saved is on the inside. It's like seed and it takes root first instead of sprouting immediately. Water the seed with the Word. You are growing and you WILL see the fruit of it. Eventually you don't recognize yourself.
As a man thinks in his heart so is he.
Nothing will change in your life if you don't change your mind. Live by the Word of God...Do not live by feelings!
Renew your mind according to the Word of God. We have to suffer to not keep feeding the flesh. Be willing to be a little incomfortable now to have good results in the future.
Walk in the Spirit and you will not fulfill the desires of the flesh.
Your thoughts determine how you are going to turn out...think according to God's Word.
I am NOT quitting and giving up!!!

The mind is our biggest problem and what we think becomes our words and our attitude and our attitude becomes our mood. The devil is a liar.
There are two ways to handle the devil, stand up to him with the Word or take what he gives you.
Romans 8:4 - 5 be led by the Spirit and meet the full requirements of the law. Don't be contolled by the flesh. If u are walking in the flesh its because you are following after things of the flesh. Where the man goes, the mind follows. Cast down wrong thoughts.
2Timothy 1:7 God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind.
Say what God says and stop saying what the devil/the world says.
Make your mind up to have what God says you can have!!! Stop talking about your mess and start talking about what the Word says. Make your mind up you can do anything God tells you to do. We are not weak and wimpy, we are warriors.
If everything around us is a mess (our house, etc) it's a sign that things are out of balance.
Don't waste your life being selfish and self centered.
Your thoughts determine your direction in life. Cast the wrong thoughts down.

I got to spend the day with two of the worlds best kids...
This month has been a bit difficult since my mom died in May 2008. I can't even believe she's been gone for 3 years now. I miss you momma but I am honored that I was able to lead you to the Lord before you died and can't wait to be with you again someday!
It's time for what God has put in you and the desires He's given you to come out. It's time to Step out. the word encorages us and protects us.
When you step out there is going to be a personal fear...When the fear rises up, your flesh is trying to protect itself, when God calls you to a work it does not rely on your ability in the flesh. I was not called to a calling because of how good I am. He is not reliant on how good/moral I am or my gifts, my strength and abilities. When you get this settled in your mind, you get feed up from pride (thinking you are so good) or insecurities. (what I have isn't good enough) (you NEVER deserve what He's called you to)
walk this calling out in the weakness and insecurity. mature past that.
Nehemiah 2:19- the devil will use the doubt and well meaning Christians to destroy God's plan.
2 Cor 10:2-5 God does not rely on me and my strength to fulfill His plan. Bring every thought into the light despite your frailties.
Press on...then an all out attack is coming. Plotting and scheming is going against you right now. He seeks to steal, kill and destroy you.
When God calls you usually it requires time and effort. Sometimes the greatest thing God called you to will be the hardest time.
Nehemiah 4:13 our enemies are no long just bringing doubt he's trying to bring harm and you better know your low spots and station people around you to hold you accountable if you would happen to walk that way. They can keep you grounded and guarded. You weren't designed to be all knowing and all seeing. Pride, adultery, insecurities, greed, etc. Find out on your worst day what your default is. Then don't stand in judgment on that.
Nehemiah 4:14 (underline)
What is in you HAS to come out...we need you!!! Fight for those around you.

Trust yourself to God, He is a God of justice...He makes WRONG things RIGHT!!! It may not come in your timing but it WILL come. God will give us double blessings for our trouble. God is a redeemer and a restorer and He gives us a double recompense for our former trouble.
Whatever you are going through, don't let it make you bitter. KNOW that you have a double blessing on the way! There is NOTHING that God can not do!!!
1 Peter 2:22-23
You can not have justice in your life until you let go of it and part of letting go of it is to STOP trying to figure it all out!
Jesus went through hard stuff too. (His disciples betrayed him, living a sinless life, dying on the cross, etc)
Just give it all to God. There may be a time of the cross and there may be a time of the grave but there always comes a resurrection.
What is your attitude while you are waiting? Deut. 8:2
God is taking us through the wildernesses in our lives to bring us to a place of abundance!!!
How long will it take you to get through your wilderness?
Psalm 5:11 'put' your trust in God. 7:1 'put' your trust in God. 9:10 'put' your trust in God. 11:1 'put' your trust in God 16:1 'put' your trust in God 20:7 'put' your trust in God
Don't put your trust in chariots or horses...Your paycheck and your job is NOT your source!!! God is your source!!!
John 2:24 don't put your trust in people...use wisdom. Don't have unrealistic expectations. Most always there will be some times of hurt with those you have a relationship with.
Psalm 31:14 I trusted in, relied on and was confident in you, O Lord; I said, You are MY God...my times are in your hands.
