Tailored MADE

When our sons were younger, they'd constantly give us the 3rd. degree regarding what would concur if they PRAYED for something. Their favorite question was this ... What would GOD take into consideration be4 answering our PRAYERS? Is: needs and wants his main focus or is it ALL about what you guys(parents) think is best?
They'd continue 2 cross-examine us, until we assured them that whatever the LORD has for them, it would be Tailored MADE to suit their personality.

Now that their young men, we don't easily veto their requests. Our approach is more of a debating style. LOL. However what we do, it's done with this BIBLE verse in mind:

EPHESIANS 6:4

FATHERS, DO NOT PROVOKE YOUR CHILDREN TO ANGER, BUT BRING THEM UP IN THE DISCIPLINE AND INSTRUCTION OF THE LORD.

CLOSING ARGUMENT

It's a day 2 day reminder that when GOD bestows something upon an individual, he customizes it to fix the person's: size, style, and even attitude. Parents be careful what you: teach, share, or advice your Tokens of Love(children) because they'll learn the lesson so well, and use it on you.

BLESSINGS,

Use What You Have...

Returning to what TRULY matters: GOD, family, and putting a positive spin on whatever comes your way ... Even when things seem a bit crazy and unstable ... that's when JESUS CHRIST makes his grand entrance, and once again teaches us a lesson on FAITH; so that we can continue to: walk, mature, and blossom in life.

If this is what's happening to you, put this in your pocket and carry it where ever you go:

2 CORINTHIANS 5:7

FOR WE WALK BY FAITH, NOT BY SIGHT.

People, People, PEOPLE don't give the enemy a Free Pass to do what he desires in your life. No one on the Face of the earth should be given that type of authority; because he'll only use it to do the following:

JOHN 10:10

THE THIEF DOES NOT COME EXCEPT TO STEAL, AND TO KILL, AND TO DESTROY. I HAVE COME THAT THEY MAY HAVE LIFE, AND THAT THEY MAY HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY.

Satan's job is to:
  1. Intimate you into feeling that your predicament is worse than what it really is.
  2. Make you bitter, cloud your judgement, and stop you from trusting GOD.
On the Flip Side, JESUS CHRIST:
  1. Leads us to Endless VICTORIES and also helps us understand that we're never ALONE.
  2. Makes a way, where their is none.
  3. Teaches us the TRUE meaning of FORGIVENESS.
HELLO ... have you dismissed from your mind that GOD told Moses to use what's in his hand? Come on, you remember ... The ROD! If your memory is a little fuzzy, right now, then here it is:

EXODUS 4:2

AND THE LORD SAID UNTO HIM, WHAT IS THAT IN THINE HAND? AND HE SAID, A ROD.

During the most difficulties moments in every individuals life, the Prince of PEACE always leaves a door slightly open; for you to walk through, and use what you have for people to: see, learn from, and especially for his GLORY.

BRIEF REMINDER

PRAY to the ULTIMATE Tool Man named JESUS CHRIST; so that he can show and teach you how to use what's in your HANDS ...

BLESSINGS

Reckless Acts are Products of Desperation

O.K. class is in session so: sit tight, listen up, and lets discuss the aftermath of reckless acts. Now the main factor produced by a careless action is due to desperation. Desperation is defined as an overwhelming
sensation that can occur abruptly; because something that was brewing inside of the individual suddenly burst, either violently or emotionally. As a result, these precipitated reactions can produce irrevocable consequences. For example:
  1. Being sexually active at a young age.
  2. Dropping out of school.
  3. Being unfaithful to your spouse.
  4. Quitting a job; without having a back up plan.
That's why we LOVE the LORD so much; because he's so clear-cut in everything that's written in the BIBLE. Read this and tell us what you think?

ROMANS 8:25

BUT IF WE HOPE FOR WHAT WE DO NOT SEE, WE WAIT FOR IT WITH PATIENCE.

You must be wondering how come? Well, if you have the time, we have the explanation. Rushing into things, without thoroughly and calmly evaluating the pro's and con's can mess up a person's life ... BIG Time. These impulsive and hindering feelings could have been nesting inside of the individual for: days, weeks, and/or even months; due to:
  1. Undervaluing oneself
  2. Relationship issues, longing to be expected, or loved by others.
  3. Economic decline: losing your home, employment, and/or family too.
This behavior is also considered as early signs of what Psychologists call Clinical Depression. Did you know that depression doesn't discriminate against: sex, age, nor financial status? Furthermore, it usually traps a person for long periods of time, before they finally reach out or acknowledge that they need HELP? Thus, it also brings upon the person a bewilderment of the mind, followed by occasional: panic attacks, fatigue, and on going ennui(a dissatisfaction for life).

These reckless and flaky actions can also occur when the: man, woman, or youth don't: comprehend, desire, or realize that what's going on in their life is because; the enemy is an opportunist, and every chance we as Children of GOD leave a crack in our life's open, he uses it to inflict more: pain, stress, and Drama in your life ...
    FINAL THOUGHT

    Before you take a step a forward in life, PLEASE try this:
    1. PRAY
    2. Calculate, not once, nor twice; but three times before officially committing to anything.
    3. Take things easy; because you only have one life to live, and if you don't enjoy it to the fullest ... Who's fault is it? GOD gave us the Breath of Life; so that we can continue his: Journey, Mission, and at the same time Rejoice in whatever we do ... Everything else is icing on the cake ...
    ROMANS 12:12

    REJOICE IN HOPE, BE PATIENT IN TRIBULATION, BE CONSTANT IN PRAYER.

    BLESSINGS
