Does everything need to have a Reason?

A Reason Why?

A Reason Why?

If everything has a Reason, then, what’s the reason?

The reason is for us to seek from within and then know the reason why He lives and gives us the energy to give for no reason.  If you need a reason to do things for a reason, I would say find no reason to love for it’s the reason why you and I are here.

The Real Reason

Adam was the first man that opened the window for all men to sin, at the time, there were no laws to show his transgressions.  Therefore giving God a reason to create a law for man to know when he transgressed against it, he would be sinning.   Pay attention… It’s not the Law that make man righteous, it’s his faith, believing God has the power to do what he say He would do.  For instance, John 6:35 (NIV) “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. 

For Example:

Abraham was given credit for being a righteous man because he had faith and believed.  Although he was over the age of One Hundred years and Sarah, his wife, was over child bearing; when God promised him that he and his offspring would inherit the world and he would be the father of many nations, he had faith knowing that God had the power to make good on His promise.

The Law

Where there is a law there’s wrath. Where there is no law there’s no transgression.

Faith

We are justified through faith.  Calling things not seen; as though they were.  It’s better to believe in what you don’t see than in what you can see.  We’ve already been given a reason and yet many still will never believe that God gave His only begotten son for us to have our sins washed away and can’t find within their heart to ask for forgiveness.

Living in Abundance

God wants us to live an abundant life, therefore coming up with a plan filled with love that gives us an opportunity to enjoy love, peace and happiness in the world.  We should take the time to stop and think and listen for the reason our soul is crying out while the melody continues to play to keep us in tune for every season.  Knowing there’s a time and place for everything, and it’s up to us to find a reason to keep the faith, without wavering regardless of where we may be in life.  Faith causes long suffering and perseverance as it builds character to keep pushing through it all; never giving up the faith knowing that God will deliver on His word, giving credit for righteousness for us who believes in Him.

Romans 6:14 (NIV) For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law but under grace.

Change your mind, change your world.  Change your environment by changing your soil.

Tic Toc Toe.. Which way to go?

If you can look up.  You can get up!

 I was all relaxed, lying in bed when I felt something going on with my big toe.  The pain and aggravation of a cramp in my big toe caused me to Jump out of bed; I watched while my big toe started pointing upwards towards heaven.   Have you ever experience this before?

If the big toe looks up during time of pain, why during trials in our life, we can’t find the strength to look up?  Within the body are many members and the toes are one of them.  We must stop, look and listen to our heart to hear what its saying.

Pain is often a key to unlocking the doors to freedom, for example:

  • If you’ve lost a job … You can create one.
  • Failed relationships ….  Love wasn’t in it.  Love never fails.
  • Low self esteem …. How many more of you do you think are just like you?
  • Lack of money …. You have the ability to create wealth, use it!

When the big toe starts pointing towards heaven, could it be a sign we lack doing something or we lack fluids (water)?   Instead of being pessimistic, be optimistic.

Do you think we lacked doing something or we’ve caused the pain ourselves?

We’re always looking out the window where the eyes see and are never satisfied.  Looking in the window can reveal more than the outer.  We’re always looking outward for answers that are deep within us.

Many times the people we share our pains with are the ones that increase them.  Everyone you love, don’t love you.  You can do everything in your heart and they still won’t love you.  It doesn’t mean you stop loving them, it only means unconditional love opens the window to our soul knowing the truth is often hard to face.  Many will not love you for the truth reveals everything that’s untruthful.

THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL IS LOVE.

John 15:18-20 (NIV) If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.   If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own.  As it is you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world.  That is why the world hates you.

Be Quick to Listen and Slow to Speak!

listen to your Heart

 

Be quick to listen with your heart and slow to speak with your mind.  Allow time for yourself and stop allowing more time for others to speak to you with their minds.  When you quiet yourself and quiet the mind, you can hear the heart speaking to you.  If you’re inquiring about time, I’m only assuming you may be asking.

  • When Lord?  When will it be my time?
  • When will change come for me?
  • How long do I have to wait?

You may hear your heart speaking saying, in the appointed time you will reap the harvest.  It’s not man’s time, it’s Gods time.  How much time have you spent studying the word of God?  Your time comes from knowing and recognizing the Shepherd’s voice.  If you’re quick to speak and not hear from listening, you’ll never know when the time is your time, it’s God’s time and now is the time to listen to your heart and let it speak words of wisdom to you so that you’ll know when the time comes.  Growing from sowing comes from knowing the words of God.

  • What do you want to grow?
  • Have you been thinking about starting a business?
  • You desire to have a closer relationship with your children?
  • Does it seem as though everything you put your hands on is falling apart?
  • Have you been cutout from a cut back?

There’s only one, who controls all, we must follow the plan given to us to succeed.  It lies amongst all the organs within your trunk of gifts with body parts, and it’s up to you to develop and unveil your hidden treasures buried within.  Only you can do what’s meant for you to do.  If you were given more time and not believed in the power within you, it has nothing to do with time, it has to do with you and me wasting our time, not awakening the Artist within to craft the lifestyle of our dreams.

 

Listening and Doing –

James 1:19 (NIV)

My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this:  Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.

Forest Of Thoughts

Forest of thoughts

In the forest there’s something for all of us. It’s filled with struggles and success.  The success grows bigger as well as the weeds.  In life we are challenged just as animals are in the forest.

You have the weak sowing, good seeds, but yet taking refuge from the strong and evil.  They remain hidden, knowing once captured their roots will be cut off, known as people of little faith.

Then there’s the proud as it grows expanding its trunk, becoming bigger and boastful.

Then there are the ones in the forest with courage, who continue to walk by faith and not by sight.   Praying and praying, knowing during its dry seasons the mist from the morning dew will provide moisture needed for survival; waiting on the harvesters to gather the weeds, binding them, casting them into the fire.

Which forest of thoughts is in your mind right now?

Let’s look at the Ant and the Elephant, they’re both strong.   The ant can carry more than 10 times its size in weight and the Elephant is the largest land mammal walking the earth with enormous more strength than an ant.

  • Is the ant the weakest by being the smallest?
  • Is the Elephant the strongest because of its large trunk?
  • If the Ant was the same size as the Elephant would it be the strongest?
  • If the Elephant was the same size as the Ant, would it be the weakest?

There are many places an Ant can go, the Elephant can’t.  Most places an Elephant can go and so can an Ant.  Sometime being small has greater advantages than being big.  It’s not about the size.  It’s about your strength.

Psalm 27:14 (NIV)

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.

 

Matthew 13:37 (NIV)

The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man.  The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the kingdom.  The weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sows them is the devil.  The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.

 

When it’s time for the harvest, you must be able to choose the good fruit and turn away from the bad.  “Stay connected to the vine”

Bound By Our Thoughts

Bound by our thoughts

Being bound by our thoughts can oftentime be like a cord of three strands not quickly broken. It’s always the small things that trip us from moving forward.

Have you been holding on to something that has you bound from your thoughts?  I have.  I find when I pray about it, the things that were holding me bound, begin to drift away.  When the small things start to appear, I hold onto thoughts to inspire, knowing…

  • You can’t compare yourself with other people.
  • There’s only one of you.
  • You don’t need man to validate you.
  • You’ve already been validated.
  • Can’t anybody do, what you can do but you.
  • Pray without ceasing.

As I changed my thoughts from words to images in my mind, I began to see a brighter picture. I began to grow spiritually with confirmation.. We must put our heart in it and not our mind.  The heart knows when to tell the mind to BACK DOWN!
