Letting Go…

Many times in life we hold on to things that we should let go. We walk around life carrying things that God is calling us to let go. This is the story of my life! I got so busy doing things that God had told me to do but lost His voice alone the way. Have you ever had God tell you to do something and you got so consumed with it that you stop hearing His voice for further direction. That is what happen to me. I was so consumed with things that God called me to, that I no longer had time for God! So consumed with these things that I was being smothered. I had breath in my body but could not breathe.  My vision was cloudy and my direction was blocked. I was truly lost. I lost the very thing that I cared about the most, my relationship with my savior. The intimacy that we once had, was lost.

Not knowing were my true destiny lied. I had been so tied up with people, places, and things that “I thought” was the will of God. Only to found out that the God that was once there had left  and I never followed Him.  Lost! Trying to figure out were was my God, my vision, and my life. Having eyes but I can’t see. Having ears and can’t hear. Screaming for freedom but won’t let go! God had broken the chains but I was still holding on… During this time I was trying to reach for the stars and thinking that I was reaching for God and missing the mark with every stretch… We can stay busy in church and doing things that God has called us to, however, not staying in that intimate place with God will cause it all to be in vain. “ Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Matt 7:21-23. I became a busybody with no true direction. A ship with out sail. Just drifting through school, work, ministry, my business and my life. I was trying to reach a place that I thought God wanted me but without God… I can say this now with true revelation, however,  a couple of month ago I had no revelation. The revealing of truth only came when I took the first step and started letting go. I started letting go of the things that hindered me from spending time with God. The things that I knew that could be separating me from my first love. Missing and longing to be in that place with God, that secret and intimate place  with God, I LET GO!

Is it time for you to let go! Has your life been nothing but a rat race… Have you been busy, busy, busy and lost sight of true vision, purpose, and destiny in God. According to 2 Thessalonians 3:11 – For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies. When you are doing anything without God’s direction you became a busybody. LET GO! Let God give you true direction. As I let go of one thing God  began showing  me the other things in my life that had been attached to your soul that I needed to LET GO of. In my time of worship and mediation I started to feel God snatching things that I had connected and been tied to my soul. These persons, places, and/or things was destroying His vision and plans for my life. It was worse than I thought!!! Oh the pain that I felt as it was being ripped from my soul! But it had to go. The  really shocking part was that I was unaware of the true grip that these things had on my soul. I was in true bondage of these things and I didn’t even know it. CLUELESS of the soul tie that lied within my soul! As God was ripping this soul tie I began to weep uncontrollably. It is very painful to be disconnected from something that had a grip on you for such a long time but you must let go in order to be FREE!

Step 1 Recognize there is an issue, problem, need for change

Step 2 Identify what is keeping you from giving time to God and being intimate with Him

Step 3 LET IT GO! So you can make room to spend time with God.

Step 4 Fast ( Spiritual Strength)

Step 5 Repent for allowing these things to separate you from God

Step 6 Them verbally say, I give it all away!

Search my heart, search my mind, search my soul
Make me clean, make me new, make me whole

All of my plans, all of my dreams, I lay them down before Your feet
All of my time, all that was mine, I now submit to Your design
‘Cause you are the one only one that give it all away for me
that give it all away for me

You are my strength, You are my God, you are my King
You make me laugh, You make me dance, You make me sing

All of my plans, all of my dreams, I lay them down before Your feet
All of my time, all that was mine, I now submit to Your design
‘Cause you are the one only one that dared to give it all away for me

(Allow these words to fill your heart and start cleaning your soul… You can play the song below to aid.)

Step 5 Continue to stay before God  in prayer, worship, and meditation… AND LET GO!

Thought For The Day That Is Keeping Me Going- I AM!!!!!!

I AM! I AM! I AM! This is my new daily decree I AM!!!! I change my confession this day… I AM everything that GOD says I AM!!!! When I confess I AM the Heavens must answer back and the Universe must respond- I AM! I AM! I AM!

“The “I Am” Factor”

[Verse:]
I left my name for generations to come.
A name of above all names I AM and is to come.
The heavens respond the universe obeys when you say I AM,
I AM What you decree must come your way,
Confess I AM that I AM that I AM.[Verse:]
Confess I AM to turn sickness to health,
Confess I AM to turn lack into wealth The heavens respond,
The universe obeys when you say I AM, I AM what you decree must come your way Confess I AM that I AM that I AM

[Chorus:]
When you confess I AM heaven must answer back… when you confess I AM the UNI-verse must react… Confess your I AM’S daily,
Make a decree PRO- PHETICALLY when you say I AM, I AM,
What you decree must come your way… Confess I AM that I AM that I AM.

[Vamp:]
I AM I AM not

My Daily Prayer- Let Us Be Spiritual!

My Daily Prayer is that we will be intimately connected with our Father (GOD), Savior (JESUS), &  Guide (THE HOLY SPIRIT) like never before, which will make us SPIRITUAL!  Many days I feel that I’m not close enough to HIS presence, so busy with this and that. So, I pray for more intimacy with Christ not only for myself but for you as well. Let us be Spiritual, LORD….

Pressing Forward- Not Looking Back!

As time passes in our lives we find that life as we knew it has changed in different ways. Some for good and some not so good. We may have gained weight, our mood, and/or personality may have changed, changes in habits, desires, passion, and vision, once was married but now single, small lifestyle changes or big may have occurred. Whatever change finds its way in your life when it is viewed as negative often times you can never see the good in it. I say to you, right now step back for a moment. I know this change feels bad and you wish it could have remained the same, we often find ourselves looking back at what was and what we desire to be again. Doing this often drives us crazy trying to obtain this “perfection” we feel we once had. But I say to you STOP! STOP the madness! Leave the past in the past. Start over. Let GOD make you over again. Let go of the past and allow the NEW and improved you to shine through. What we think was “perfection” was flawed. It undoubtably was not perfection because it withered away. Let GOD rebirth you with His true “perfection” that will never die. A lot of times we think we have made it to a form of “perfection” but it was just the beginning, we have not yet taking hold of it. So press forward, don’t look back. Reach forth for your prize. Your prize is not in your past but its right in front of you. Reach FORWARD! Move FORWARD!

“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14

Philippians 3

1Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.

2Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.

3For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.

4Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:

5Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;

6Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.

7But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.

8Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,

9And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

10That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

11If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

12Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.

13Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

14I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

15Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.

16Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

17Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.

18(For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:

19Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

20For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

21Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

Thought for Today That’s Keeping Me Going-Come Lay Em Down

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”Matthew 11:28

“Cast your cares on the lord and he will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall.”Psalm 55:22 (NIV)

Whatever you may be going through today, make the choice to give it to the LORD and leave it there. Release your worries, fears, burdens to the LORD and receive your PEACE…
