Year of 2010

Where did this year go? This was an excellent year, overall. I has a few bumps, hurdels and mountains that I had to overcome, but its been good. Travel a lot this year; I went to pittsburg in Janurary for a youth college conference called Jubilee. For spring break, I went to North Carolina for Habitat for Humanity...which was great. I went to Beaumont, Texas for a minsters convention, which was amazing and my final pit stop was Honduras, which was wonderful. I'm glad God gave me the privilege and opportunity to travel and hear the word of God. Texas was really a blessing, looking back on the word of God that was taught. It was a blessing to be with the people of God in Honduras, who aren't trying to be anything, but people of God. I really can't believe 2011 is around the corner. My prayer is that I live more faithful, more committed, more set apart for Christ.

Reminder of the redeeming power of God

"Once we are in Chirst...We don't have to carry on the matter how dysfunctional it maybe." - Matthew West I am a new creature, old things have past away...Behold! all things become new. God let this is become real.

The Bigger Picture

"Aaaaaaah", This is how I feel right about now. Its so important not to look at our current situation through carnal feelings, thoughts, or lens. We need to look at our situation through the lens of Jesus Christ. Looking at the bigger picture of what God is working out in our lives. "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8-9. If we could just have the mind of Christ. If I could just have the mind of Christ and keep my mind on him, I would be in perfect peace. And I wouldn't feel like screaming! :) God renew my mind, renew the Church's mind. Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. ..Prove? How do you prove the will of God. You can only do this if our mind are renewed in Jesus Chirst; so if our minds are renewed than we will be walking in the Perfect will of God!!. God renew my mind. Renew the Saints mind, don't let us stray from your word. Don't let us be conformed to this world...for it isn't our home. We are just pilgrims passing through. Amen.

Anything to Hard for God?

Genesis 18:14, Is any thing to hard for the lord? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a Son. Nothing is to hard for God...just waiting for that appointed time.

God's Love

God's love is perfect and simple. Because of the fall of man, its humans that makes love hurt and complicated. Why? Afraid of rejection or looking vulnerable or weak. Nobody wants to be the "ONE" in the relationship to be weak, open and bare. Because that is what we are....Without God. We are weak, fragile human beings. We tried so hard to look and be strong, but we don't understand that in our weakness we are actually strong. ( I know kind of confusing). II Corinthians 12:9, " My grace is suffiecent for thee: for my strenghth is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirminities that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Sometimes we cringe at our weakness and the thorns that God won't remove in our side. But God grace is resting upon us and making us strong each and everyday.

The Valley

The height of the mountain top is measured by the drab drudgery of the valley; but it is in the valley that we have to live for the glory of God. We see His glory on the mount, but we never live for His glory there.- Oswald Chambers

Truth in the inward parts

Its September, College is fully in session. I haven't written in my blog, in a while, between my busy summer and school, I didn't take the time out to write. I have a few things on my heart. Something that the Lord's been dealing with me about. Or maybe its something I'm desiring for God to do in me. In Psalms 51, Its says that God desires truth in the inwards parts. The bible says, that Jesus is the way, the truth and the light. This isn't some amazing revelation, so my desires lately is been to have Jesus in my heart. Sometimes, we think if we just ask God to come into our hearts, he will. Maybe this was the case, when we first God saved, but as we get older its gonna taking more than just asking. Were going to have to seek him with everything we have. Asking Jesus to come and fill our hearts with is love and his characteristics. The songs writer says, I rather have Jesus, than silver and God. But this has to reality to us. Just as real as school, church, hobbies, or anything else we do. As Christians do were desire truth in the inward parts? Do we want Jesus in our hearts? Do we understand all that means? Jesus Christ, the lamb that was slain before the foundation of the world, Jesus Christ our redeemer, Jesus Christ our Savior, our deliver, Jesus Christ our friend. Do we desire him in our hearts?

The road taken

I haven't written for a while. As usual a lot has been going on, but I give God the glory anyway. It kinda of late and I"m extremely tired, but I just feel the need to express my heart through writing tonight. I um just been thinking about decisions and paths I've come across in my 20 years of experiencing life. Since a young child, I was raised in the church, but I got to know Jesus Christ at about 11 years old. I knew about him all my life, but I never experience him before. From then on, I had this theory that if I served God for the rest of my life good things would happen to me ALL the time. I came to learn that God is not a vending machine. You know when you put 25 cents in the machine? You expect to get something that is worth 25 cents out. Well God doesn't work that way. God doesn't want you to serve him because you want good things to happen to you, but you should serve him because he alone is worthy. The road taken is the road for Christ. Its a narrow road, self has to die, so Christ can truly live through us. A couple years of ago when I was about 18, I experience my rude awakening and it just hit me, "God is not a vending machine". Even though its a simple analogy or revelation, its truth Amen

Looking unto Jesus

Psalm 141:8-10 " But mine eyes are unto thee, O GOD the Lord: in thee is my trust; leave not my soul destitute. Keep me from the snare which they have laid for me, and the grins of the workers of iniquity. Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape." For the last two verses, I don't feel like a group of people are on my back, I just feel like the enemy is on my back. Just trying to trip me up so I can fall. That their are traps all around me and some I am not even aware of. Just praying that God would just help me so I would escape. So this is my prayer.

The following devotion by Oswald Chambers sums up how I've been feeling

"It has not yet been revealed what we shall be" —1 John 3:2 Naturally, we are inclined to be so mathematical and calculating that we look upon uncertainty as a bad thing. We imagine that we have to reach some end, but that is not the nature of spiritual life. The nature of spiritual life is that we are certain in our uncertainty, consequently we do not make our nests anywhere. Common sense says - "Well, supposing I were in that condition . . ." We cannot suppose ourselves in any condition we have never been in. Certainty is the mark of the common-sense life: gracious uncertainty is the mark of the spiritual life. To be certain of God means that we are uncertain in all our ways, we do not know what a day may bring forth. This is generally said with a sigh of sadness, it should be rather an expression of breathless expectation. We are uncertain of the next step, but we are certain of God. Immediately we abandon to God, and do the duty that lies nearest, He packs our life with surprises all the time. When we become advocates of a creed, something dies; we do not believe God, we only believe our belief about Him. Jesus said, "Except ye become as little children." Spiritual life is the life of a child. We are not uncertain of God, but uncertain of what He is going to do next. If we are only certain in our beliefs, we get dignified and severe and have the ban of finality about our views; but when we are rightly related to God, life is full of spontaneous, joyful uncertainty and expectancy. "Believe also in Me," said Jesus, not - "Believe certain things about Me." Leave the whole thing to Him, it is gloriously uncertain how He will come in, but He will come. Remain loyal to Him.

Failing or Missing God

Have you ever failed God? I'm sure all of you could say "Yes" at one point that you did. I don't think anyone would say it gives them great pleasure to fail God. But when you fail God, you see how imperfect and weak you are without God. You see your great NEED for God. That you can't live without him. You know when God convicts your heart about something and you KNOW its God who gave you that conviction? When in your heart, you tell God you will obey him. Sometimes you can't wait till God puts you in a situation so you could "prove" to God that you'll really obey him this time. But God doesn't put us in the situation when we think were ready. Sometimes he'll wait 3-4 months go by until you "forget" about the conviction and you find yourself in that situation. And you missed God... I thank God that we can come to the throne of Grace with boldness and asking God for forgiveness and mercy. Hebrews 4:16. I'ts the most terrible feeling in the world failing God. It shows you how weak you are with God. It feels your soul with agony, cause you know you missed an opportunity to be a testimony of Jesus Christ, but you missed it and the only person to blame is YOU. I am glad God doesn't treat us like our sins deserve. Psalm 103:10. David said, if counted all our iniquities not ONE of us will be able to stand. Psalm 130:3 Thank you lord for your mercy, Forgive your children lord. Forgive us for missing you

For all who are thirsty

Isaiah 44:3-4 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed and my blessing upon thine offspring: And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows bu the water courses. This is something the lord had me read this morning. Isaiah 64:1 Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at they presence. As when the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make they name known to thine adversaries, that the nations may tremble at thy presence!

Making Jesus real again

I know its been such a long time since I posted something on this blog. I was in North Carolina for spring break and I just came back from Texas. I had a great time in NC. I had a amazing time in Texas. The word of God was on point for all the services. It was just a confirming a lot of things that God had spoken to our ministry and to my life specifically. God was saying through the pastors that we need to make sure there is NO bitterness, unforgivness or any other sin in our hearts in order to be free. Satan desires to bounds us Christians so we won't reach the lost. How can we speak about God being a deliver or a healer? If us Christian are bound and spiritually or physically sick like any other person. This Gospel has to be real to us. We have to make Jesus real again in our lives. We have to lift him daily in our lives. In psalms it says "The fool hath said in his heart there is no God" This verse is stated twice in Psalms. This verse is not only for sinners, but for Christians as well. With our mouth and mind we may confess Christ, but our actions deny him. When I was in Texas, I was thinking about the city of Philadelphia and the college campuses. How God wants to reach them through his people, but if he can't break us and do a work within us...What makes us so different from those who aren't saved? God must be made real in our lives again.

Establishing our own righteousness

Rom10:3 For they being ignorant of God;s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. God has been dealing with me about this lately,how I've become so focus on following the "rules" to make sure I am being holy. This is establishing your own righteousness when you become legalistic and forgetting about the grace of God. When you don't trust God enough to change you inside and out, so you subconsciously have a list of rules that defines holiness... and that isn't of God. We aren't under the law anymore, but under the Grace of God. ( Just because we are under the grace of God doesn't give us a way for us to sin willingly though...You don't want to frustrate the Grace of God) Amen

Grace of God

Wow...I've been slacking on posting on here. Well, mid-terms are coming up, so this is sorta the crunch of the semester. If that makes sense. When I went to the Jubilee Conference in Pittsburgh, the lord use that time to deal with me about a couple of things. Sometimes as Christians, we can have this idea that in order for a person or group of people to be saved, they have to have the understanding of God we like we do. Or their ministry have to be like ours. In some cases, this isn't true. God say he called ( I'm paraphrasing) Some apostles, so prophets, so evangelists, some pastors and some teachers for the perfecting of the saints and for the work of the ministry.Ephesians 4:11-12. Different ministries, but the same spirit of God working together to glorify God and to edify the church. God used that time to show me how important it is to have the Spirit of God and where the spirit of God there is liberty. Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Corinth 7:13 Be mindful that this freedom doesn't give way to doing things that aren't of God...The key is where the Spirit of God is...Anything that doesn't glorify God please don't try to justify it and say that it is of God. Another thing while I was in Pittsburgh, we were talking about the gospel of Jesus Christ and what gives us the power to turn away from our sins. Of course we can say that godly sorrow gives us repentance unto salvation. But what gives us that godly sorrow? In Isaiah 6, he talks about seeing God and then afterwards seeing himself and seeing how utterly sinful he is. Also in Isaiah, it talks about how our righteousness is as filthy rags. Isaiah 64:6 I think one of the other things that gives us that godly sorrow is the Grace of God. The word of God says the goodness of God leads men to repentance. Romans 2:4. When you can look back on your life, or even in the present situation that your'e in and see the grace and goodness of God all over your life. When you see God's delivering hand in a situation and you know you can't go back to those weak and beggarly elements. That's the grace of God...Thank You for your grace.

Continuation of Rough Week

Okay, so I haven't written in a while. The rough week I had last week kinda of pour over unto this week, but its okay because I am still praising God. He is still worthy. We say that so often, that God is worthy through the good and bad times...but when the bad times come..we are hesitant to praise him. Jesus you are still worthy to be praise! You alone are worthy of all glory and honor! Help us lord...Help me Jesus... This song I like is called "All of my praise" by Selah, the lyrics says.."I will follow you through dark disaster and sing Hallelujah through the pain; And even in the shadow of death, I will praise you, And even in the valley, I will say,...Holy, My God, You are worthy of all my praise". You know what the funny thing is? We as look at disasters like Haiti and mindless tragedies like the shooting at University of Alabama and we still feel like everything is going wrong in our little world...even though the things are minute considering the horrible stuff people are going through right now. I don't have much to say...Until next time ~Shekinah~

Rough Week

This week hasn't been going to great, far as school anyway. The good thing is the snow and cancelled classes :)...So that gives me a lot of free time. God's been dealing with me about Trusting him. Just placing my heart and life in his hands. That sounds so easy, but you"ll see how hard it is when your face with an situation and God's asking you to put it in his hands. God is not like man. People makes promises and don't keep them. People hurt you on purpose after you trust them. Sometimes we can approach God like that. Sometimes were afraid of what God is going to do in our lives. Sometimes we forget that God ways are not our ways and his thoughts are not our thoughts and as far as the heavens are from the sea ( i"m paraphrasing) that is how far God ways are from ours. Trust in the Lord with ALL thine heart; Lean not ( Don't try to analyze it or understand it) to thine own understanding, but in all thine way acknowledge him and he SHALL direct your path. Proverbs 3. Shall...That means its a must..He has too direct our path, but only if we trust him. Lord, don't let us be afraid to place our hearts in your hand Father. You know best.

Eagles Wings

Just came from service...a lot people didn't come out because of the snow. God had pastor play this song, called "eagles wings" and some of the words talks about God abiding and living in you. Once that happens we can soar with him. Soar above different things that try to distract us Christians. The scripture says in Isaiah 40:31 “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” The important part is waiting upon the Lord. To wait..wait..wait on God. I must say that is the hardest part, we are impatient people. We usually desire things to move on our terms and when we want it, but God saying to wait on him. There are so many scriptures in the Word of God that speaks of waiting on him. Lord help your children to wait.

Counting the Cost

I tell you, you give the flesh an inch and it will take a foot. I feel like God is calling me again to separate myself. I have to keep reminding myself that our lives are supposed to be consecrated unto God forever. Forever set apart to him for his use. I've just been thinking about counting the cost. In Luke, it talks about us taking up the cross and following Jesus and counting the cost.(Luke 14:28) Understanding the sacrifice and the calling. My flesh is weak, but my spirit is crying out more for God.In 1Chronicles 21:24, David talks about not sacrificing anything that doesn't cost him something. Same way I feel...

Almost Over

Wow, I really can't believe January is almost over. I really believe a lot of things that God took away from us during this season of fasting and consecration we as a body of Christ can't go back too. I feel like I've been on a spiritual journey and this is just the beginning of things. God really showed me how much I depend on him and how much I can't do without him. God has been showing me my heart like never before. You know when its God, when your so aware of your sin, and your wicked heart. It's just like I can't get away from it and I know I can't change myself...God has to do the work. I was at work and praying to God. Lord, you said that every thought would be in obedient to the will of God...bringing your thoughts under subjection.( 2Corin 10:5) How can this be? How is it possible? The Lord said to my heart, " You need to go deeper into the realm of the spirit; where the enemy can't touch you." When you read in Revelations, John talks about how God took him away in the spirit and revealed to him visions and revelation of what was going to happen in the end time. Just to be lost in God that way. God doesn't have to take me to the third heaven, I will just be happy knowing Jesus and Jesus knowing me. Just how when Jesus said to Satan..."Hast thou considered my servant Job?" ( Job 1:7). I want God to be able to look to and fro the earth and be able to say "Have you considered my daughter?:...She is just and upright in my eyes. God has been just dealing with me so much during this time. My prayer has been that I would see sin through his eyes. That I would feel his heart when he looks at the state of the Church and the world. Leonard Raven-Hill said, "Oh to be lost in him..Oh to be consumed in him". That is my cry in these last days. I want to be lost in Jesus. I want to KNOW Jesus. I don't want to know ABOUT him. I want to know the God of Jacob, Abraham, and Issac...The same God who is alive back then and alive now. I know if I know Jesus, that is where my confidence would come from. That is where my boldness would come from. In Acts, Peter and John were going to the temple and there was a crippled or beggar asking for alms at Gate Beautiful... Peter said, "Look on us"...Why did he say that? Because he knew what he had in God. He knew that God was alive and could heal that man. Peter said, "Silver and Gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk"...Oh to have the boldness of God...Oh to have that faith and confidence in God. As Christians, most of us don't have much money, but we want to be able to say to the lost, " I have don't have money, but I have JESUS!!!" Jesus can save you...Jesus can heal you...Oh its only through Jesus. When I look at Peter's life throughout the bible, he is the most humane person I could relate too. But looking at his end; when I read the book of Acts, I know there is hope for me too..Peter was filled with God...He was able to lift up his voice in temples and proclaim the name of Christ. Without doubt or fear, but with the boldness of the Holy Ghost.

God's Chosen Fast

God bless, Just a few thoughts I had today. Isn't it something when you want to be obedient to everything in the life works against it? The lord has been showing me how easily distracted I am. (This month our church is fasting and consecrating and we try to abstain from entertainment and everything that may distracts us) so, I was on the Internet last night "checking my email"...and before you know it I was looking at video after video on YouTube!! Watching people "shout"...and all this other stuff. When I finally went to bed, I began to talk to the lord, and I said," I don't even know if I should say lord forgive me...because I keep doing it!!" When I ask forgiveness from something I don't want to ever do it again. But my whole point is, in Isaiah 58, God talks about the chosen fast. In that chosen fast you should be afflicting your soul and flesh. In that chapter God told Israel that they "exact all your labors and found pleasure" This was not God's chosen fast...Its not a time for you to be happy and satisfied...its a serious time...The lord has been leading me on extended fast, but I feel like I keep messing up by becoming distracted. I seriously thought it would be hard to fast as school, but that is the easier part, the hardest part is staying consecrated and keeping your fellowship with the Lord. In Chapter 58, God tell us so many things that could happen, if we give him that chosen fast. Heavy burdens, oppresses spirits and every yoke would be broken in our life. This is that fast that God has chosen. To consecrate means to set apart; to come aside. God says to rend our hearts and not our garments.(Joel 2:13) He said the foreskin of our hearts should be circumcised.( Deu 10:16) Lord, if we could just see in all of your glory. God we can be able to see ourselves and how sinful we really are. You said our hearts are deceitful above all things and desperately wicked; who can know it?( Jeremiah 17:9)..Lord, David cry was "Give me a clean heart, oh God, renew a right spirit within me"(Psalm 50)...Oh God, is that not our cry in these last days? Let that be every person cry who professes to walk with you. Oh Lord, let us set our heart on you. Oh God, let us lay aside every weight and sin that so easily besets us. Let us run with patience. Looking unto you Oh, God. Looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher our faith.

The possiblities

I had this thought tonight at work,
Oh, the possibilies of what God can do through his people; if we just sacrifice our ALL to him. Can you imagine on judgement day & God tells you everything you missed out on because you settled for giving God average?
Lord, help us to give everything to you. No sacrifice is to great for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Work and School

So things are slowly moving into session. I had my first class Today. I have another at 2 o'clock, but I am on break. I have work from 7-9pm Tonight, so thats not too bad. The big thing is tomorrow I have two classes starting at 8 to about 12...Then I have work from 1:00-9:00!!!!!!...ugh..kinda disappointed beings as it being my first week back. I'm just going to ask the Lord to help me. Thats all for today. I know no word of encouragement or prayer, maybe I'll post something later on tonight. I don't feel so well either.

Sunday, January 17, 2010


So, I am back on campus..Classes will start Tuesday, January 19. I really don't have much to say. My hearts prayer is that I will draw closer to the Lord. I wouldn't be distracted. The lord has been requiring a sacrifice from in certain areas of my life. I struggled with it, tossed,& turned with it and now I am ready to just give it to God. David said, ( I am paraphrasing) " I will not give that which does not cost me nothing". How can we ask God to do so much stuff in our lives, but were not willing to lay it ALL on the altar? God just help me. Help the people of God. Take the desire away. Help your people to see sin through your eyes. Lord, you said we have power to become the sons of God. I feel like this is a turning point in the people of God's life. We don't want to be like the people of Israel..Going around in circles for 40 years..murmuring and complaining. God was trying to get the people somewhere, just like he is trying to get the attention of the people of God. Lord, help us to do what you have called everyone of else to do, and Lord help us to keep our eyes focus on you. Only you Jesus. 1 Corinthians 9:27. But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

God wants Holiness

During the month of January, Our church comes aside to consecrate and fast unto the Lord. We try to shut off entertainment and ever distraction that hinders our walk with God. The more we give ourselves to God we realize how the basic things in life can be a huge distraction. Today I was having a conversation with my mom about certain movies I like to watch. There were two specific movies coming up that I wanted to see in February. My mom was saying, she didn't believe these movies were of God or she didn't see how it benefit me with my walk with the Lord. I said, " How in the world will these little movies hinder my walk with God?" She said, " Remember, its the little foxes that spoil the vine"...She said, " God wants holiness". I thought to myself, "Yeah, God does want holiness...but I greatly desire to see these movies". That pretty much was the end of the conversation. A couple hours later...I heard was "God want's holiness"..."God wants holiness". A lot of times we give excuse for our sin, but we pray that God would move in our life. We are not willing to lay these things on the altar. Its the sin that so easily besets. Paul said, " All things are lawful, but all things are not expedient; I will not be brought under the power of any". Some things in the walk with God are just not sin, but its a distraction and it can keep you out of the Kingdom of God. I don"t know about you, but everything that God is dealing with me during this time, I don"t want to go back too in February or any other months. As we walk with God, our standards much go up higher. Our convictions has to be even stronger...because God wants holiness. He said, " Be ye holy, for I am holy." 1 Peter 1:16.

Where is your Hope?

Looking at the Haitian Earthquake makes you bring a lot of things in perspective. Sometimes we forgot that our lives are a today and gone tomorrow. These are the facts of life and during these times, there is nothing you can hold onto, but....GOD. You can't hold onto your job, money, possessions or family because God forbid all these things can be gone in a blink of a eye. So, I ask you today. Do you have hope? Where does it lie? Do you have trust? Whom do you trust in? Hopefully not yourself. Let Israel hope in the LORD:for with the LORD there is mercy,and with him is plenteous redemption., Psalms 130:7. Your hope and your trust has to lie in God. He truly is our only hope. Even in the small situations...when we feel like everything is falling apart...Hope in God...Trust in Him. God said he isn't slack concerning his promises towards. He isn't a man that he should lie! What he said, he SHALL do..He will bring it to pass. I am going to find the references to these verses and post them, but these are the scriptures I hold onto..because my Hope is in his word. Amen? Amen.

Thursday, January 14, 2010


Its the year of 2010...and we all have made some New years Resolutions consciously or unconsciously. During New Years Eve, I was on my knees declaring to God that this year things will be different. I would have a boldness for the things of God. I would be quick to obey him and delight in obeying him. My prayer was that God would heal my heart and that I would move on in him. At this moment, I am just waiting on God to bring these prayers to past.
"I wait for the LORD,my soul doth wait, and in his Word do I hope" Psalms 130:5

Love is a Sacrifice

A couple weeks ago, the Lord laid a brother in Christ on my heart. I felt like God wanted me to love him with his love. During the prayer time, God had me feel his heart and I began to cry out for him. A couple of days later, I began to complain and murmur, " Why does God always lay people on my heart that are hard to love or people who don"t return God's love". God dealt with me afterwards by dropping questions in my spirit... " What would be the point to love a person with my love if the person loves you back? It would't be the love of God. You would't be able to see me working in the situation because you would be relying on your own love. When you love someone with God's love, you are sacrificing your emotions, your heart, and everything else. The scripture says, " For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. And if ye do good to them that which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same". Luke 6:32-33. The love of God goes beyond human capability. God's love takes patience, long-suffering, humbleness, meekness and strength. Let that be our prayer that God would help us to love everyone with his love. That as a people of God we wouldn't be so quick to judge and find flaws. Just as Jesus looked beyond our faults and saw our need for him that we can do the same.
