MY CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN VOTE MATTERS

Recently I wrote about how my views as a Conservative Christian and faith in Jesus Christ affects my political views. I will never again vote for any candidate who publicly or privately opposes my conservative christian values. I feel led to warn some of you who proceed in reading this post. Some have the propensity to: (1) Be awakened (2) Be convicted (3) Be challenged or (4) Be offended, so please proceed at your own risk although it is not my intention to offend you or your views.

HALLOWEEN & JESUS CHRIST

October 31, 2016

This morning in my prayer time, I decided to ask the Lord several questions that I sincerely wanted answers for. One of them was strikingly different from all of the rest, however I felt a peace in my heart when asking him this question. What you are about to read is my dialogue with the Lord about Halloween.

A Christian’s War

For the average Christian, strategy in how to stay alive is not a daily request during prayer. It’s a common misconception amongst the evangelicals, and quite frankly unheard of amongst the practical thinkers. “Ask for strategy, who me?” Yes you, ask the living Spirit of God, the Spirit of Wisdom for strategy on how to survive daily attacks from the unseen enemy. The enemy spoken of is the enemy of the Christian faith, satan.

Long before I knew I was in the middle of a war, I understood there was something not quite right with the way I’d handle certain matters. I would respond too quickly with emotions that seemed to stem from an offense unbeknown to me, was somehow festering within me. How could I justify my actions if I did not know the source? Fast forward, now I find myself asking the Holy Spirit for counsel on a host of matters involving my most inner self. It’s within the confined fibers of the human heart where the combat zone dwells while the battlefield rages inside of the mind. Continue reading “A Christian’s War”

Transparency

What is transparency? Is it that section of your speech where you “feel” you’re being open, honest and vulnerable? I believe it’s that place that one goes to where every thing is unveiled to God without reservation. It’s that place where there’s no more murmuring, complaining or blaming but more so ownership. Transparency is what I choose to call a destination, an action, or even a description of oneself.

I often ask myself, why aren’t more people completely transparent with God? Don’t they realize he sees everything, hears every thought and lives everywhere? I believe this word sums up the answer to these questions: Self-Preservation.

God is not looking for the perfect role model, the most secure men or humblest of women. He wants you and all of your imperfections to trust Him. Trust him when you don’t have the answers and need them. Trust him when you have a deadline and still have not been given guidance. He can be trusted with all of your present, past and yes even future mess, but only if you’ll be totally transparent with Him. Whether you whisper, speak, cry, scream or say nothing at all…he still hears your thoughts and longs for them to be completely transparent.

Transparency is when you and God really get down to business. Continue reading “Transparency”

Doorsteps

Each entry into a doorway requires a person to either step up or down in order to pass “through”. Regardless if the person is immobile and forced to utilize mechanical help, or solicit the assistance of genuine bystanders. The doorway is a means to enter into or exit from one location to another. The doorsteps of your life can be stumbling blocks for your mission if not carefully measured.

I submit to you, it is imperative where you place your feet when in motion towards your next season. Your destiny does not wait for you to position your feet in perfectly aligned places in order to get there faster. No, your destiny awaits your motivation to stay on the right track. How often have you been distracted from a dream or vision you once held? How many new-year resolutions have you begun only to experience sheer failure less than one month into the new-year? Watching what you align your steps to, means you’re watching how you’re getting to your destiny. Continue reading “Doorsteps”

Time

Time is inconsequential. It’s relative to what is done with it and how it is used. Other than that it doesn’t quite matter. On Thursday, the Holy Spirit moved me to pay attention to the seasons and time then consider what they’re both telling me. Tell me this, would you be able to decipher what season you were in if you wore a mask? The answer would probably be yes. I certainly can tell by the temperature when it is winter, or the sun blazing on my skin when it is summer, but how about Spring or Fall? Here’s my point, if you were not accustomed to the seasons of your life would you be able to pinpoint exactly which season you were in? Think about that.

Without proper guidance and direction if you wore a mask wouldn’t you agree, confusion and lack of awareness would be prevalent? The mask I am referring to in this post is a spiritual one, often placed on you without your knowledge or awareness. The adversary (satan) enjoys slipping on “spiritual masks” over your spiritual eyes in order to prevent you from recognizing what season you are truly in. Continue reading “Time”
