Ungrateful Heart

My 12 year old pleaded with my husband and I to get him the new X-box. Despite either us being employed at the time, we told him we would try to get it by Christmas. The X-box along with the Play Station 5, was such a high demand item that it was hard to get. To add, even the most wealthiest people had trouble getting their hands on one. I checked every website and every store. Soon as they were in stock they sold out within minutes. But for my child… I was determined! I was going to locate him one and I would not have to pay the jacked up fees from 3rd party vendors. Finally, the Lord blessed me to find one on Walmart.com Thank God!! My son knew there was a possibility that he might not be able to get one due to high demand. The very thought sadden him. But nevertheless, you should have seen the look on his face when we surprised him on Christmas Morning. What A joy it was to see the smile on his face!

Four months later my son shocked me with his new request. He asked if he could trade his X-box in for a Play Station 5. He said all his friends have one and he can’t play certain games with them online with his X-box. Instantly I felt unappreciated. I wondered if he remembered all we went through to get it.. the sacrifices that were made… but, just like that he forgot.

In that moment I wondered how many times I grieved my Heavenly Father. He has brought me so far. He has ALWAYS provided! But it has been many times I wished I had this or that. It was never my intentions to be ungrateful….but I was. Lord knows I’m thankful for the hard times in my life and the many times he told me “No.” I had to learn to be content and thankful. Lord I repent.

Just like I told my son, I encourage you today to think back over your life. Thank God for what He has done. Ask him to help you have a grateful heart. Ask him to teach you how to be content. He is faithful to do it!

Verse of Meditation: Philippians 4:11-13 (KJV)

Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me

Salvation

“Lord, come into my life, I will make you Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I believe you died on the cross for my sins and three days later you got up with all power in your hands. Wash me and cleans me from all my sins and make me whole before you today. I renounce my past and look forward to my future in you. Lord fill me with the Holy Spirit as only you can. In your name of Jesus Christ, I pray.”

Childlike Faith

As we began to approach a flight of stairs, I notice my one-year-old
granddaughter grew with excitement. Every step she made seemed to impress me.
As I grabbed her hand, she took each step with confidence. In my opinion, she
handled those stairs well for her size and shorter legs. I am convinced that
she could have made it up the large stair way on her on lol! Nevertheless, I
felt like she needed the extra support. However, as we were leaving our
destination to head back home, things changed…It was her quick attempt to go
the stairs that freighting me. I quickly grab her hand as she had already began
going down the stairs. WHEW!! If I did not grab her, she would have tumbled
down!

In that moment of fear gripped me and the Lord began to speak. He explained to
me that Ava does not have any fear of going up or down the stairs. He pointed
out how she did not hesitate to size of the stairs before she decided to take
the first step. She never allowed fear to kick in. I can admit that I have
struggled with taking the first step when God has showed me a dream or has
asked me to do something out of obedience. To be honest, I quickly attempt to
count the cost or size up the assignment. Nevertheless, lets focus back to
these stairs,  as I bring my attention back on my granddaughter, I thought to
myself; “But she would have fell down the flight of stairs if I did not grab
her!” Gently God reminded me that she was not going to fall because she was not focused on falling! Besides, she had faith because you were with her. He
whispered and remined me, that He has he is walking with his children every
step of the way. He is always ready to reach out and grab our hand if we
stumble.. but first we must TRUST him and take the first step!

Verse of Meditation: Matthew 18: 2-4

“He called a little child to him and placed the child among them. And he
said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you
will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly
position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”

Growing Pains

I will not be the one to talk about the year 2020 in anyway negative. I can honestly say this has been a year of vision and provision. I have been able to see God clearer than ever before, including signs and wonders. The bible says that signs and wonders will follow those who believe (Mark 16: 17-18). Yes, the world may put emphasis on the pandemic and Covid-19. But I choose to put them back on my Lord and Savior. For me personally I would say this year has challenged me in my faith, my prayers, my believe, etc. I can also say that I have grown so much spiritually.

My niece asked me a few of weeks “Tee-tee do you like growing pain?” I responded immediately. I said “No, Kimora…. It really hurts!” She went on to explain how her knees have been hurting from basketball camp and the reason why is because she is growing taller. For some reason her question and my answer resonated in my sprit for a little while. The Holy Spirit began to minister to me about the growing pain in my life and how it does not feel good, but its working for my good (Romans 8:28). For me to go a little higher in him, its necessary that I grow spiritually. So, as I’m getting taller; I admit that the aches and pains seem unbearable at times. But I trust God my Creator. He knows just how much pressure to apply.

If you are going through a difficult time right now, put your faith in God’s hands. Trust him. He knows just how much pressure is needed to grow us up spiritually and for our faith to grow even more. If the pain become too painful take a good dose of God’s word! Take it day and night and watch the pain subside.

Verse of Mediation: Joshua 1:8, KJV

“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”

Luke Warm is Disgusting!

I’ve never been a coffee drinker.  However, since I got over into my 40’s, I’ve become very fond of cold and hot coffee drinks such as; frappuccino and lattes.  On my new coffee journey, I’ve discovered that I hate the taste of Luke warm coffee. I don’t even like how it feels touching my mouth. It’s quite disgusting! This is exactly what God revealed to me the other day.  He does NOT like it when his children are luke warm.  It makes for a double minded person. The Bible states that a double minded person is unstable in all his ways (James 1:8).  We can’t be luke warm. We have to have made up minds to serve him and him only! There is no in-between. He wants us to be completely sold out to him. We were never designed to fit in with this world. We were set apart to do his will!
Verse of Meditation: Revelation 3:16 (KJV).      So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.
