The same Faith we use to believe that God will drop the price on something to make it affordable for us, is the same Faith we should use to believe that God will ELEVATE us to purchase it full price! ..... We have to be delivered from that Poverty-mindset, being comfortable with lack ..... God is calling us HIGHER ... He is the "MOST HIGH" .... Let's bring our Faith up a bit Higher people, ESPECIALLY if you're a Tithe Payer! .... Malachi 3:10 says when we pay our Tithes, the Lord will open the windows of heaven, and pour us out a blessing that we won't even have room enough to receive! ..... That's a PROMISE from God .... So let's Pray according to His will and remind the Lord of His Word.. not that HEEE forgot, but to show Him that WEEE KNOW!
Today is Thanksgiving, but I'm giving GOD thanks EVERYDAY for His Son Jesus Christ dying for my sins, and all the love He has shown me in just this year alone! My biggest Praise Report is how GOD healed my Mother. She was hospitalized this year, in April, with the amount of illnesses afflicting her body being as long as a GROCERY LIST - including BOTH of her lungs failing. I had just rededicated my life back to GOD 2 months prior to this event ( Read my Testimony here ). When my Mother first went into the hospital, GOD spoke a Word to my sister Jazmyne saying "Because of the Righteous stand both of us chose to live for Him, our Mother will not die. And if we would have still been making music for the devil (as Vixen ENT and Too Much), our Mother would have got sick that same time of year, but would have died."
So I held on to that Word. Seeing my Mother in ICU, sedated, tubes all in her body with a myriad of machines beeping, was TRULY a test of my Faith. Time and time again I had to slip away into the hospital restroom and cry out to GOD in Prayer. My Pastor often says "I will not let what I see, hinder what I believe". I had to do something so easy, yet so difficult, which was believe GOD! ...... Feeling a little defeated, we decided to call for a Fast to help fight for our Mom in the Spirit and our ENTIRE Family joined in! Children, brothers, sisters, cousins, uncles, aunties, EVERYBODY! Our love for her was not gonna lose to the devil - LOVE WINS!
In August, GOD healed my Mother, restoring BOTH of her lungs and sending her back home. I serve an AWESOME GOD, HALLELUJAH! ..... My Family and I would be sad this Thanksgiving, but a sovereign GOD saw fit to heal my Mother... and THAT is what I am thankful for this Holiday! ......... Happy Thanksgiving (reader)! Have a good one
Smoking Weed is a bad investment! .... I'm not gonna preach at you, I'm talking to you from a natural standpoint.. (first natural, then spiritual ... 1 Corinthians 15:46) .... So from an economic sense, Smoking Weed is a bad investment .... There is no return for your investment ... The goods that you buy into does not generate income.. In fact, buying Weed is HURTING your finances ..... After actually buying the Marijuana, you have your additional expenses: blunt wraps + lighters + food (snacks), clear eyes, etc. ... You're practically bleeding your own pockets dry! ..... Where in Smoking Weed do you profit???
Granted that Weed makes you hallucinate for a while, but once your "high" comes down, it's back to square one again ..... Each time you Smoke, you familiarize your body with the feeling of being "high". And each time you achieve this "high", it's effect is weaker than the previous time. So you eventually spend MORE money, and in most cases, double your dosage and/or begin to experiment with STRONGER narcotics (but that's a different story)
Some of us could actually take care of our financial responsibilities if we'd simply stop Smoking Weed! Some of us would actually have CARS, APARTMENTS and be INDEPENDENT if we'd simply stop Smoking Weed! ..... We're robbing OURSELVES - limiting our OWN potential ...... Let us begin to spend our money WISELY, putting our needs BEFORE our wants ..... If you need help spending your money, simply ask GOD to help you! Proverbs 3:6 says "In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths" ......... God bless!
"Boyfriend and Girlfriend" is just a ficticious situation to do what MARRIED people do .... That's why most Marriages don't last.. You're already living together, had sex, have children, etc. .. It's nthn else to look forward to! ... "Marriage" is NOT the ceremony - it's when the flesh becomes one in an act called "Consummation" (meaning Sex) .... Some of us are "MARRIED" to too many people ... Thats why my Relationships didn't work out.. I was still MARRIED to numerous people ..... We have to be cleansed of our past BEFORE we step into our future, that is if we want our future to be PERFECT .... November marks 9 months that I've been Celibate, and I'm not ashamed of Obeying GOD ..... This is a choice I made, not just for me, but for my future wife and family .... I want GODLY results so I'm doing things GOD's way! Saving myself for Marriage .....
