Frustrated while you wait…

frustratedPiccuDOS

Could you imagine two sisters standing one next to the other being told by their Father that He had a gift to give each one of them, but they would have to wait for it. Both initially believed the father with the same level of faith, but one sister received the gift before the other. Yet still, the other sister sits while she watches her sister enjoy her gift as the years pass on by. Did the sister who received the gift first necessarily have a stronger faith than the other sister? This is not always the case. Believe it or not, having faith that’s able to stretch out years of waiting on God for something, takes more strength than just receiving what God has for you in a short amount of time. Still, some days it gets frustrating. You start wondering, ‘Did I really hear from God on that?’. When is this going to happen? Am I doing something wrong to delay this promise from coming? Why are you withholding things from me God?!’

Christianese 101: God’s Plan NOT yours

 

GodsPlan

Imagine two people were given a seed, which was placed in the ground to watch over and cultivate. Both people were given an instruction on how to care for the seed to cause it to grow. Person A, was told to hop on one foot near the seed at least twice a day, until he was tired. Person B, was told something similar, but because he had so much KNOWLEDGE about taking care of and growing plants, he REFUSED to take care of the seed the way the instructions stated. No, instead he went to Google and YouTube to research and figure out HOW to grow the type of seed he was given and began doing NORMAL things to take care of a seed he thought was average.

Man A obeyed the instruction and hopped on one foot every day, and immediately saw some type of growth in his seed, whereas the man who became doubtful and discouraged by the instruction saw no growth at all. As man B saw man A begin to get fruit and growth from what he was doing with great ease, he became frustrated and discouraged! ‘Why is this man getting any growth at all? What he is doing is foolish! It makes absolutely no sense according to everything I’ve researched and all I know!’.  Unfortunately for man B, the person who gave them the seed was NOT an average man, but was God, and was the One who gave him the instructions as well.

The Original Call

originals

—> Struggling with feeling like people are stealing your purpose? Read this!<–

So, you finally found God’s will for your life. You’ve found your purpose; you found the path that you were meant to go down. You spent time in prayer seeking God and He’s finally revealed to you where you truly belong. You now realize every door that was shut on you and everyone who rejected you in the past was God gently nudging you and guiding you into what He really wanted you to do. The door was opened to you and you walked through it without looking back.

Unfortunately, when you went into your new season you now notice that people that never even talked about doing the work you’re doing are suddenly trying to do what God told YOU to do! What’s worse is that it’s plain as day that they are not graced to handle that call and they are trying to force something that God never ordained in the first place. What do you do when someone is committing identity theft in the Spirit against you?! There’s no need to fret or be distraught over this because God has seen it all, let’s turn to 1st Corinthians :

Christianese 101: God said you’re my WIFE!

wifey_orNAw–>Manipulation, propheLYING, and ABUSE!<–

Ladies, there’s a type of man that seems holy, but as time progresses their real fruit is revealed. They like seeming saved or ‘nice’ publicly, but behind closed doors they are a vicious snake. A man can pray, but that doesn’t make him holy. He can go to church, but that doesn’t make him righteous. Does he really believe in God’s word? Or does he just use God’s name to manipulate you into doing what his flesh desires? In this day and age, where people so easily lie on God and what He has spoken, it’s important to know the difference! Now, I already wrote a blog post about women who hear that a man is their husband(Read about it HERE), but some of you guys don’t have that problem. Some of you guys have guys telling you, you are their WIFE! Sis, if you’re not married yet, or know some single women, it’s time to listen up, because this one message is important! Let’s turn to 1 Kings 13:

Without A Covering

withoutcover_SMALL

–>Trusting God in Your single season<–

Imagine being in a hot and dry desert. Your lips are cracked and parched due to thirst and your stomach is rumbling due to hunger. You look around, but don’t see any water or trees for shade miles around. The skin on your face is scorched due to you not having a covering on your head. It’s not that you weren’t offered a covering at the beginning of your journey. The people who led the tour knew that you would need one and continued to offer it to you. However, you aggressively denied what you can now clearly see you desperately needed. What’s worse is that you fought tooth and nail to bring what YOU thought was an adequate covering to shield you from the burning sun.

You didn’t know the conditions were going to be this bad, you say. You didn’t know that it was going to get this hot, but the tour guides knew. How often do we do this with God? He knows exactly what protection we need, what covering we need, but we refuse the one that He offers. We refuse even His own protection! We live our life without His covering—without His blessing!

Christianese 101: ‘God said..he’s my husband!!’

bobz

–> Questions to ask yourself to see if God told you who your husband <–

So, you’ve found ‘The One’! The guy that makes your heart flutter, makes you skip a bit, or makes you sing. Well, maybe he doesn’t do all that for you, but something has whispered in your ear: ‘He’s the ONE!’ Maybe your excited about it or maybe your ready to run for the hills. Either way you need to discern whether or not this word came from God or the devil because if you don’t know this by now, Satan can and will speak to you every now and again to throw you off track. Don’t fret, I have ten questions that will help bring more clarity to whether or not you’re hearing from God about that special(or dreadful ) someone.

Help God, I’m Stuck!

stuck

–>Feeling Stagnant?<–

So, you’re at this spot and seem to be staying at this spot. Everyone around you seems to be moving forward, but not you. You are still in the same pit that you’ve been in for years and years. You look at everyone else who seem to be effortlessly moving on in their life and start to wonder: What’s wrong with me? God, why can’t I seem to get up when it’s so easy for everyone else? Doors seem to be closing on me left and right and everyone I thought were close to me are nowhere to be found. It seems like every time I get up; I’m knocked back down to the ground again. I’m bruised and sore from all the times I tried to step forward in what I thought you’ve called me to do. God, where is this going? I’ve been praying for years! I’m stuck and I can’t seem to get out of this pit!

Kiss the girl

20170308_101125

->Pursuing the Blessings God has for you<-

Graceful, poised, a bit sassy, and always sharply dressed. When she looks up at you and smiles, the whole earth seems to stand still. You want this girl. You feel like you need to have her, but every time you’ve tried to approach a girl you’ve wanted in the past it seems to have failed. This one is not only the prettiest, but also one of the smartest women you’ve known. She’s well out of your league, there’s no way she would give you the time of day, but the Holy Spirit has prompted you within your heart to pursue her. You gulp a bit nervous about what to do in this situation. What to do, what to do? Click the play button on the video bellow and let’s let pastor and worship leader Sebastian minister to us on how we all need to learn how to Kiss the Girl as you read along to my encouragement. And yes, ladies if you know a guy who has this problem feel free to forward this to him. (Disney ministry spring forth!)

Bad Bosses

badboss3

You’re warm and cozy in your bed getting the best sleep of your life, when a trickle of sunlight pierces through your window and touches your eye. Grudgingly you open your eyes to the painful bright light of morning, look at your calendar, and let out a big sigh. It’s Monday morning and we all know what that means, it’s time to go to work with that horrible boss you work for! She nags you and picks apart every little thing that you do without even so much as a thank you for the good you have done. She talks about you with the others behind your back. She demeans and humiliates you in front of others to make it seem as though you’re not smart enough to do your own job, which actually makes her look dumb, in your eyes, since she hired you! You could leave the job, but you find rewarding things about other aspects of your work or you just need the money. Either way, the Sunday sermon certainly didn’t help by reinforcing the concept that you have to submit to that witch!

Finding God’s Will and Walking By Faith

nikemg

–>Walking by Faith made simple for the over planner<—

I gotta tell ya, I see a lot of crazy nonsense these days in preaching about God’s will—on what it is and isn’t. A lot of people make God’s will seem like it’s some complex Rubik’s cube that only God knows how to solve, but somehow  you need to miraculously find how to solve it or ELSE! Honestly, if only God can fully know and understand the complexity of His plan for your life, I’m pretty sure His ‘puzzle’ is way WAY more complicated than a Rubik’s cube and is impossible to solve without His help.
