A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

Do we believe that we are doing enough for God as Christians? Is that a impractical question?
Have we given our all?
Are we continuing on with our life and squeezing God in where WE see fit?
Is he TOP priority?
Are we comfortable JUST going to church? Or JUST believing only?
Do we suppose going beyond BELIEVING is doing too much?
Are Sunday mornings plenty?
Would an outsider know that we are followers of Jesus Christ by reading our Facebook, Instagram posts? Tweets? Snapchat videos? Or should we have a small disclaimer to advise or warn viewers of our content, and that it is not directly consistent or congruent with Christ – but since we are all sinners saved by grace- it’s permissible?
When will stop giving Satan all the credit for our mess up’s; downfalls; mistakes – and acknowledge our part? Repent. Allow the will power that the Lord has given us – and the Power of the Holy Ghost to help guide us, keep us, and make right decisions.
No man is perfect –yes. But the Holy Ghost (The spirit of God) which Jesus said would be sent in his name would comfort us – fill us, lead us – IS. That’s why it’s important to walk in the spirit and NOT in the flesh…why? So we do NOT FULFILL THE LUST OF THE FLESH!
Why aren’t WE screaming in the wilderness to prepare the way of the Lord? Or was that just John the Baptists assignment?
Why is baptism in the name of Jesus grievous?
How has the promise of being filled with the gift of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking tongues as the SPIRIT OF GOD gives utterance – become old-fashion and obsolete?
Who are those who shall do greater works than these (according to John 14:12)?
Is it not the followers of Christ? Those who believe and have received his gospel, been baptized and filled with His Spirit? Those who are keeping his commandments and living by his word? Or is it only reserved for the pastors, and evangelist, deacons, ministers, prophets and apostles?
Who is qualified to tell someone about the goodness, the unfailing love of Christ that moved him so, that He manifested himself in the flesh. Subjected Himself to His creation – to restore them back to Himself!
You don’t have all the answers?
When will your testimony of what God has done for you be enough? Do you remember when he healed you? Remember when he kept your mind when you were 2 seconds from going insane – COMPLETELY NUTS? Or what about when He RESTORED YOUR MIND!? When He called your name right before you were about to overdose? Remember when you miraculously overcame that sickness and no one understood how or why? Remember when you were left for dead, but that scar is a testament of his unmerited favor and grace!
What about the inexplainable comfort you felt in your time of mourning or pain? And you just knew it was the arms of God?
I could go on and on – but those or the testimonies that someone needs to hear FROM YOU! Someone is waiting to overcome from the words of YOUR testimony. You don’t have to be a bible scholar tell someone about Christ.
It’s Ok to direct someone to a church home – or a pastor – in regards to a question or situation that you are unsure about. However, the whole point is the invitation. Was there an open invitation to Jesus Christ – the Savior, Healer, Deliverer, Forgiver, Comforter, Peace Maker, Bread of Life….?
Saints, let us not become complacent and/or comfortable in where we are or where we are not in Christ. If you are comfortable – change your position. Get uncomfortable. Ask God for direction, for an assignment. Inquire about what you should be doing in THIS season!
What could we be doing for the widows, and the fatherless – the homeless? Ourselves?
We can do more/better brethren! God can do more IN us and THROUGH us! Are we willing vessels!?

Excuse this random post……
. But I recently created an Polyvore account. All those who have an account find me. You can click the link below.
I initially started Polyvore years ago for fun. But recently I started creating sets that would inspire modest apparel.
If you have a Polyvore please leave a link in the comments.
Enjoy. God Bless
I was debating on whether to do a Song of the Week or Playlist of the Week…..and as you can see, I ended up going with Playlist of the Week which consists of about 10-12 Songs from various artists. Primarily to give a little variety rather than giving just one song that may or may not be someone’s particular cup of tea.I
I know however that even with making a playlist, I can not satisfy or quench the thirst of a lot of people’s favorite Genre. And that’s ok….
This is why there is a comment section at the end of this blog.
Please feel free to comment with your favorite song or songs that’s really spoke/ministered to you this week.
I am ALWAYS looking for new music to listen/worship/praise to. I look forward to your comments.
What is your current music style?
I currently enjoy a lot of different styles of music. However, I primarily listen to Christian music. Sometimes I may listen to Jazz instrumentals but that’s rare. I love Contemporary Christian Music, Gospel, Christian Rap, Christian Country………. I am still discovering other Genre’s of Christian music so if it isn’t listed above doesn’t mean that I dislike it, I just may or may have not come across it.
So without further ado: Here’s Week #1 Playlist
- Hands to Heavens (Revisited) – Kari Jobe
- House of Prayer -Eddie James
- Hallelujah All Day– Datin
- Spirit Break Out– Kim Walker
- Over -Kirk Franklin
