It has truly been sometime since I’ve sat down to write what God has spoken through scriptures because God has taken me on my own personnel journey of pain that has required me to totally depend on him and him only the last six months. Through the process I’ve learned there are moments when we unintentionally but selfishly believe our struggles are about us but they”re really about him and for him. Everything about our lives comes back to him and is about his glory not our own. He has blessed us not for us but for his glory, he chose us to be holy and blameless in his sight and he did it in his love with his pleasure and for his will for his glorious grace. We bring praise to him through all situations for his glory and his word provides that truth for us to see in Ephesians chapter one.

Ephesians 1:4-6
4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5 he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.

Ephesians 1:11-12
11 In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, 12 in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory.

Ephesians 1:14
14 who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.

Since every part of our life is all for his glory here’s something for us to all think about. How are we glorifying God in our, marriages, families, relationships, with our time, talents and gifts, money, platforms, careers, hobbies, with the words we speak, type, tweet and text and with the things we watch and hear. Going forward let’s make an effort with assistance from the Holy Spirit to glory him in all things not somethings. Lets stand clear of our self glory or self-focus but instead focus on HIS GLORY. WHY? BECAUSE THE BREATH WE BREATH, IS BREATH BREATHED, BECAUSE OF HIS GLORY!!





So many of us allow others lack of faith, doubts or opinions, our situations, and fear keep us from doing what we’re called (by God) to do. When we look at Jesus even from a little boy he never allowed anyone or anything keep him from doing what he was called or set out to do.

He didn’t allow his parents when they found him in the temple after they had left him keep him from being about his father’s business or Satan who tempted him for 40 days or Demons who he refused to allow to speak because they knew he was the Christ or people when they tried to keep him from leaving them. The wind or the pain and hurt he experienced that could’ve brought fear from the death of his cousin John the Baptist who died for spreading the word and convicting others by calling out their sin or Peter who tried to prevent him from going to the cross. He never allowed anything or anyone keeping him from the will of his father and we’re blessed today because of that.

Luke 2:46-49 (NIV)

46 After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. 47 Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers. 48 When his parents saw him, they were astonished. His mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you.”

49 “Why were you searching for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?

Luke 4:12-13(NIV)

12 Jesus answered, “It is said: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.13 When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time.

Luke 4:42-44(NIV)

42 At daybreak, Jesus went out to a solitary place. The people were looking for him and when they came to where he was, they tried to keep him from leaving them. 43 But he said, “I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent.” 44 And he kept on preaching in the synagogues of Judea.

Mark 8:31-33(NIV)

31 He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again. 32 He spoke plainly about this, and Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.

33 But when Jesus turned and looked at his disciples, he rebuked Peter. “Get behind me, Satan!” he said. “You do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.”

Here’s something to think about. Could it be possible that someone missed out on a blessing because we failed to step out into or do what we were called to do but refused to based off the things listed above like fear, others opinions and doubts or our life situations?

Mark 1 34


Joseph and Mary left Jesus (Jesus never left them) and after recognizing it (that apart of them were missing) they turned back to find (in search of him) and they found him.

This is symbolic to us his lost sheep. When we stray away. Jesus doesn’t leave us we stray away from him. Here’s hope for those who stray away from him. If you search for him you will find him.

Jeremiah 29:13
13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.



When someone thanks you or appreciate something you’ve done for them it makes you more willing to help a person like that why? Because it makes you feel appreciated right? When someone does something for you or has done something for you it’s important for you as well to be thankful and appreciative.

It’s even more important to give God thanks for all that he’s done for you. Jesus himself demonstrated this for us to see. Before Jesus fed the five thousand or the four thousand the first thing he did before he broke the bread was give thanks. It was after Jesus gave thanks and broke the bread ( breaking it in faith believing God would provide) then God the father multiplied (increased) the food and provided just what they needed to be satisfied. Jesus didn’t give thanks to receive something from God he gave thanks from a sincere heart and the father provided on both occasions.

Mark 6:41-44

41 Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to his disciples to distribute to the people. He also divided the two fish among them all. 42 They all ate and were satisfied, 43 and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces of bread and fish. 44 The number of the men who had eaten was five thousand.

Mark 8:6-9

6 He told the crowd to sit down on the ground. When he had taken the seven loaves and given thanks, he broke them and gave them to his disciples to distribute to the people, and they did so. 7 They had a few small fish as well; he gave thanks for them also and told the disciples to distribute them. 8 The people ate and were satisfied. Afterward the disciples picked up seven basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. 9 About four thousand were present.

Like Jesus we should give thanks out of a sincere heart not looking for something in return.

1 Chronicles 29:13
13 Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.

1 chronicles 16 34


It wasn’t the apostles or Jesus closest crew James, John or Peter or a man who first got to see the resurrected Christ. No it was Mary Magdalene a women who after experiencing healing and deliverance devoted her life completely to Christ a woman who stayed by his side even after the crucifixion when others abandoned him.

A woman who showed by her actions and willingness to follow JESUS support JESUS financially and weep for JESUS showed how grateful she was for JESUS and all the things he had done for her willing to give and risk it all letting nothing keep her from or away from JESUS and what a gift she received by JESUS for being committed to JESUS by being the first to see and experience the RESURRECTED JESUS.

The question is are we as grateful for OUR deliverance from JESUS that would allow us to experience JESUS the way Mary experienced JESUS? Are we willing to follow him with the same passion and as vigorously as Mary M after he delivered us? What can compare to a woman of God devotion? What can compare to a woman that’s willing to sacrifice it all for Jesus one who isn’t willing to deny her Christ not even once let alone three times out of pressure or fear for her own life? What a woman JESUS saving grace and power displayed in Mary Magdalene.
