Psalm 70King James Version (KJV)
70 Make haste, o God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O Lord.
2 Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.
3 Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.
4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.
5 But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O Lord, make no tarrying.
Rejecting yourself~Gifts are a blessing when there given to us. However there are times we are given things we unconsciously do not receive or we modestly tell the person giving the gift “no thank you” because of false humility. Now I’m not saying that everyone is like this, rejecting gifts “and by the way remember were speaking material gifts right now to set the stage in the next paragraph to focus on spiritual gifts”. Some people are haughty considering no one but themselves taking everything they can never considering to give.
My focus however is on the inner gifts (spiritual) helping those sincere about Gods gifts and their unfoldment. Focus for a moment on Gods gift within you and if your actively using it? Focus on the fact the gift lives within you… Then tell yourself Iam the gift! I am the gift that God sent to the world! Take ownership and realize you are, we are gifts sent from God! Our physical bodies have nothing to do with the gift but being used as vehicle to assist the gift. The physical assisting the spiritual means that the spiritual becomes more dominant than the physical if we allow it.
As we focus on the gift more than it making room for us we become aware of ourselves and the need to use it. Many issues we face become eliminated, because we’re using and being who we were sent to be… A gift!
“I look beyond the physical to see the gift in me today, which is who I truly am!”

Many of us make time for various relationships in our lives. We put forth the time, social activity, and the late night communications. We even check in on various people in our circles from day to day. Could this be because we can physically see and hear these individuals? Some of us spend hours on social media stalking relationships that don’t even add any productivity to our lives. Why not stalk God his word, his music, his attitude. Clearly the world has time between snapchat, Facebook, twitter, Instagram and any other social media outlet.
Our relationship with God is like any other relationship requirement if not more. Time & effort is required to maintain a good healthy relationship. We are secured by God’s grace and his promises and yet the only requirement relationally is that we draw closer to God. That we allow the ability to enhance and evolve our relationship to another level. We tend to treat God like that fair weather friend or access as needed. Relationships require work and a development of selflessness. You might actually think you are closer to God but the physical beings that you can see and hear on a day to day basis… Quite possibly are distracting you from the first relationship priority of the day. If you are not married and/or single then truly enough you have even more time to go higher in God. If you are married never forget who is the head of your life. It takes 30 days to make and break habits.
Let’s develop a closer habit to God. Some profess and even pray but still not remotely close as we all need to be. Let’s start today to truly make God the leader of our lives. People say they live for God but are unwilling to truly sacrifice. What have you given up for God to exemplify Christ in your life today? Can you imagine the changes you could see in your life in 30, 60, and 90 or even a year from now by simply drawing closer but more importantly don’t forget the passion. #Got God?
James 4:8New King James Version (NKJV)
8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
Listen to: Draw me close

Slow to anger
“The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.”
Psalm 103:8 NIV
We know that the lord is slow to anger because his love for us goes beyond our understanding. But why are we quick to anger? And what are we angry about? See when we ask the question it means we are searching for the answer. The answer is not outside of us it’s actually inside. We get impatient with ourselves which causes us to be quick to anger. When things are not going our way or it’s not moving at the way we would like. But I say lets see and try it gods way! Things are released in divine time and order. Let the lord’s hand be your guide. Release the anger and embrace his love for you and trust that the battle was already won because we have the victory in us through him!
“All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.”Acts 2:4 NIV
This scripture stood out to me today. I know we speak and think a lot of things that concern fleshly things of this world. However, being filled with the spirit we will begin to speak in other tongues. Speaking on things that are of the spirit and are holy and true. I see in my mind being filled up with less of ourselves and more of his mercy and grace through obedience to the spirit we are more likely to submit. Be mindful that we were created in his image so not only are we hell raisers but we can also be peace raisers. So which are you filled with today? God bless you all 😇😇
Good Morning! Just the other day, my oldest son was asking me about tithing and it’s purpose. These scriptures in Malachi & 2 Corinthians, have always been my favorite because as a little girl, we said it every Sunday before tithes and offerings. I broke down the Scriptures for him, so that he knows what it means to give joyfully vs of necessity. He referenced the widow who tithed all she had. (He had studied prior to asking.) Then his face changed when I emphasized how God will pour out a blessing so big, that there won’t be room enough to receive it. I further explained how a blessing can be anything (not limited to $$) and I gave him examples of the blessings that God has poured out for our family. My son asked how much do we give? I said, all God is asking for is 10%. So if you make $10, you set aside $1 for God. His response; That’s it?! That’s easy!
Indeed, it is. God Bless your day, every one!
Malachi 3:8-10King James Version (KJV)
8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.
9 Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.
10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
2 Corinthians 9:6-7
6 But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
