- May 23, 2017 Safety Mask Part 1 True or false...christians don't deal with depression. Seems like a no brainer right? Well if you said false you're right christians like many others in this world living face this same daily battle. But, if you said true guess what, you're right also. Christians don't "deal" with it rather most I've seen suffer in silence and wait on the Lord to do something or simply come back. Think about it, how many people in your mind and to your knowledge being a saint have you heard answer the how are you question with I'm depressed, or I'm hurting inside. I would venture to say probably not many. You are more likely to hear I'm good, blessed and highly favored, or my personal favorite I won't complain. Am I saying everyone we come across we are to pour out our souls to? No, but I do believe you should have a hub or even if just one person, you can take your safety mask off for. The safety mask is a mask most wear to hide the pain that's inside. Is Jesus aware of this ongoing battle? Absolutely, why else would it be said that in this world you will have trouble. Trouble has many faces, and depression is one of them. But just like any other trouble it is not something Jesus can not help you break through and out of. The blood still works and the name of the Lord is a strong tower the righteous can run to and be safe. It like most trials we face is a process but in the midst of that process the key is to hold on and continue to trust Jesus at all costs! Will He come through? He always does! Deuteronomy 31:8, "And the Lord, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed." ~Minister Poet~
- May 16, 2017 Necessary Breakthrough Often times we as a people ask the question why to various mysteries of life. More so than others the question of why so much trouble. The exact answer to that question is sin. Simple, yet the in depth complexity of everyone's struggle is where you get many answers. Why does a woman who eats and lives healthy die of a heart attack at 30? Why does a child who has not yet truly begin to live life get taken? Why after years of wise and successful management a man loses all his wealth and thrust into poverty? Why do you go through what it is you're going through? As a whole I don't have a full answer to give you because to whomever is reading, your life's journey is different from the next person's. What I can say a facet of that why answer is its birthing a necessary breakthrough. The definition of breakthrough is an act or instance of removing or surpassing an obstruction or restriction; the overcoming of a stalemate. Our circumstances at times leaves us in stalemate positions so that we can stop and see the hand of the Lord at work in our lives. Because Jesus is acquainted with our suffering, touched by our infirmities, and by all points tempted as we are He knows the way that we take! Jesus knows and sees your situation, as a matter of fact He's the one who allowed it! Are you seeing yet why you endure and go through what you're going through? It's so that as you are paused by life's trials and tribulations God's glory, presence, love, grace, and mercy can all be felt which in turn become the very ingredients necessary for your breakthrough! Stalemates are never permanent unless you allow them to be. At some point you or that trial must be moved but in order to do that the final question to be asked is how badly do you want your breakthrough? Isaiah 54:17, "No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord." ~Minister Poet~
- May 9, 2017 Through To The Other Side By now, living this life you've had your share of disappointments, hurt, pain, suffering, financial struggles, depression, oppression, health crises, contemplation of ending it "on your own terms", and so much more I could go through but this would turn into one long devotional of tears in word format. But, for a moment let's give thanks because through all that listed above and then some which was not, you're still here! Granted for some reading you may be thinking, still here yet same problems. To you I say continue to hold on, because change is a process and the trial you face is the tool that will bring about that change. Sounds pretty grim but if for one second you were able to see yourself on the other side wouldn't that provide a sense of security for the future? There's always a reason for something we face in this life. It's not always known to the individual but there's a broad reason and that's because it rains on the just and unjust and no matter who you are, from the lowliest beggar to the highest of worldly royalty you will have to go through something. With the times we're living in now, more and more are feeling like broken pieces waiting to be collected and put back together. You may be even living in fear that all your broken pieces are too spread out to be recovered and repaired, and to that I say nothing is too hard for God. It's hard now and you grow tired of waiting but the results of your faith will soon be shown in the clouds. The clouds hover low but the sun is always right behind them. The night seems long and gloom but joy is coming in the morning! To the one battling doubt, look back on that which you saw God do and for moment reflect and stay there until the confidence grows that your present doubt is swiped away by destiny fulfilled faith. Mark 4:35, "And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side." ~Minister Poet~
