Orphans walk with one eye present to be among the living, but a constant twitching in the eye because at any moment they made be yanked back into a system of bondage that they desparately want to escape. Traveling around from here to there with a stack of luggage on their back, if not visable to the eye, it is emotional weight that constantly feeds the track of their minds with full occupants in a race, going round and round, and around. These mental demons are on a treadmill attacking confidence, belonging, identify, inheritance, healing, and a possible future of peace.

This is the orphan spirit. A behavior that manfests what we belive we are not entitled to because we are unworthy to recieve such an awesome gift from a loving God. There is no need to prove yourself to your Daddy God. He knows what you are capable of whether you are holding a gun in your hand, a bag of weed, or a can of Bud Light burping incessiantly. God loves you and He does have a plan for your life. Associate yourself with the belief that no matter what I have done, Daddy God still loves me and has a place for me in His kingdom. Desire to be there and turn away from your current activity knowing that you have been adopted.

The Grace of Time

The beauty of this time is the opportunity for each of us to step into the authenticity that we are qualified to receive God’s best; each and every one of us! Time is an awesome commodity issued in spurts to all who are walking on this Earth with injection of grace along the way. Thank you for grace for consistently monitoring our situations and letting us know when enough is enough and surrender is near.

The world set standards and consistently raises the bar of expectations; what even with a credit card some may not be able to reach the level of pleasing, the level of acceptance that we are seeking. Emotions are fickle like the mindset of some people, shallow like a grave in which they place you and use you and following the use of you toss you away like a bottle of coke -you are passed into the bin for refuse.

Jesus is into using the weak of the world for his pleasure. What education or the denial of financial aid would not do, the unadulterated revelation knowledge of God’s word- getting on your natural state is the difference maker to catapult you into all that God has for you. The experience of freedom in God’s word makes me hunger for more -laying down the world and accepting what God has for me is like the way a cat grabs a lint ball…..excitingly and filled with expectation.

We were created for this moment. What will you do with your moment?

The Gift of Time

Seeing 34 in a few days and saying peace to my stretch marks because the maturation process of life is an experience in itself. Stripping off the old knowledge once read-it no longer sticking to my mentals. Ultra bond denture cream can’t hold it because I gotta release it! Kinda like learning your ABCs and 123s only to
discover that there was another set waiting around the corner. The Wii replacing the Atari, the Mac Book Pro replacing the typewriter. Victimization
being recycled into Victorization! I win because the greater one is in me. To every thing there is a season–turn, turn, turn a time to rest and a time to fly.Feeling way to friendly to feelings had to evict them from ruling my life and anyone assuming that form. A time to sit and a time to walk. A time to be silent and a time to speak. A time to tolerate and a time to agitate. Security never brought freedom, just the illusion of such. Each has a caveat and a set of regulations. Not now denying my feelings just controlling them!Peace #andthechurchsaid….
