Real Time

Hey guys. First off I want to start by being open. For me it doesn’t matter if 1 person views this or 1,000 people view this. My point is, I really want to be genuine with you all. These past couple months I have really been struggling to find peace in my heart and trying to get to a state of peace that I just couldn’t find. Well with this searching, I kept trying to do things my way in certain aspects of life and constantly kept failing. I got over certain things that kept me in bondage for a long time, only to find myself doing other things that I thought I had left behind a long time ago. I don’t know why I didn’t look of for help as I always try to encourage others to do, but I didn’t. I was stubborn for not trying to listen to God’s voice, selfish for only trying to please myself, and with all this also trying to hear God’s voice, while covering His up with mine. I cannot go into detail on here publicly for the sake of judgement, but I can say that I AM getting better. My eyes are opened to more around me. There are people holding me accountable and that are watching my every move. I want to be the leader and man God wants me to be. If that means sacrificing the girl I want most, that addiction I really enjoy, that thing, this things, and anything in between, then I am now ready!

Thanks for reading guys! God bless. Great things are here and still to come!

An Interesting Thought

Today I don’t really have a typical “devotional”, rather a thought I’d like to share. I really enjoy reading the books written by Paul, especially 1 & 2 Timothy because You begin to see something really beautiful through his words. As you read along in the books written by apostle Paul, you will begin to see that he really demonstrates and compares our Cristian lives to a fight, a battle, a hard and difficult journey.

With this in mind, just think and examine your own life as I am mine right now. If our life is supposed to resemble a fight, a battle, a war, than how honestly can we say that the life we live is really the one Paul describes? Do we live everyday trying to put to death our flesh and old self? Do we try to serve Him in all and please Him, our commanding officer? How much would a person that knows us from the inside out be able to say that they can see that soldiers life in ours? Do we give in more to temptation and live by the flesh, or do we put that aside and struggle to overcome and with the Spirit actually do overcome? How much to we try to please Him? How much effort do we put in all we do for Him and the Kingdom? How well do we reflect Christ’s life in our everyday matters and affairs? How much love can we say we have for our creator and one who first loved us?

Again, with this post, I am only trying to get us to examine ourselves and really ask God to fix us where we can clearly see our insufficiency and lack of Him. Please do your best and be honest with yourself when examining yourself because either way He knows where you stand!

The Fight

Today I want to encourage you all with a message that I want you to encourage other believers with as well. In 1 Timothy 6:11-12 it says:

“But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love,endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.”

With this passage in mind, I want you all to remember that each day is a fight. Each new day we are picking up the cross and choosing to follow Jesus Christ. Each day we are choosing to put aside the flesh’s desire to do certain things that are unacceptable for us as Christians and evan as human beings.

Remember to look at the eternal life that we are promised and remember to ask God to strengthen you in all of the traits and characteristics that He wishes upon your life. We want to pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, and gentleness daily. We want to become BETTER humans for this earth and better warriors for the kingdom of Heaven!

Update

Hey guys! I just want to let you know that I am still going to be posting, just less often. I’ve got some things to work on myself before I can continue to teach and help others. Continue to pray for me and help me by asking God to continue to open doors and help me be led through them. For God to help me grow away from things that hold me back and things that aren’t His will for me. Thanks and God bless you all!
