The Masters of Manipulation will have you thinking you are doing the right thing, but deep inside you will question yourself are you really doing the right thing?

Manipulation is like a feather. Surprisingly soft, light, airy, tickling your emotions with a charming touch. Long with many strands of ways to capture your heart.

All of a sudden you get stuck by the blunt end of the feather (manipulation) and it hurts!

You begin to question yourself. Why does it hurt so bad when I enjoyed its touch?

We Are His People

Yes, there has been one tragedy after another, but death has not defeated us. We may not know why this happens to us, but we will one day. You know who you are and you know who you belong to. We are God’s People. ~ Daily Devotional #God’sPeople

I can not even think about pursuing my own goals in these moments. I’m speechless with where this world is going. My focus has changed to the people who are literally suffering.

God restore them in their brokenness. When it’s my time to move, prepare me to help that next person.

You Make Him Happy

The Lord will not forsake his people, for his great name’s sake, because it has pleased the Lord to make you a people for himself. I Samuel 12:22 ESV

Speechless

Why would someone go into a hotel and start shooting into a crowd of people from the 32nd floor of a Hotel? #Route91🙏🏽 #LasVegas #HatredHurts

I am speechless.

Filling the Emptiness

O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. Psalm 63:1 ESV

Deserted Hearts

God is… He is everything. He is a light even to those who have nothing. It is not His desire that we suffer, but nonetheless He is always a comforter and a very present help. He loves them and us just the same. No one is esteemed above the other. That’s how he wants us to treat each other, but are we really unbiased on how we treat the poor, the less fortunate? We want to turn our backs on them. It’s not our problem how they live their lives. Just keep on walking by. They’re peasants in our lives.

He found them in a desert, a windy, empty land. He surrounded them and brought them up, guarding them as those he loved very much. Deuteronomy 32:10 NCV

What does it take to live a life to care for the poor? It’s a calling on your life that many do not heed to. It’s a calling that is not for everyone to accept, but if you’re that one! That one person that knows you can take care of only one person that is poor, you will find it in your heart to help where you can help, even if it’s just one dollar. You never know how a little can go a long way in their life.

Give a little of your life to help those in need.

Thank you Father, that you are near to me even when my heart is broken and my strength has failed. Thank you that you find me in my wilderness and you will restore me to joy.

~Found in a Desert

Bring HIM honor and glory

Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called him. This is my rule in all the churches. 1 Corinthians 7:17 ESV

I was taught that we have direct access to the Trinity. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. It is the newness of our spirit that can bring honor and glory when we give up our own desires of the flesh to a higher calling on our lives.

But on the other hand, I was also taught that God gave us free will to choose for ourselves how we want to live our lives and to live pursuing our own goals and aspirations.

Lord is this the life you chose for me or am I pursuing my own goals and aspirations?

At what point do you really choose the life God has for you?

Do you continue on your own path of righteousness or do you fully surrender unto the Lord Almighty?

Lord I want to bring you honor in the way that I live and glory in how I use my unique talents. Make your calling clear to me so that I can fulfill it. ~ Amen

Help Puerto Rico

http://unidosporpuertorico.com/en/

My friend and I meticulously planned a trip to Puerto Rico two months prior to devastating hurricane Maria. We toured the city of San Juan and Old San Juan and enjoyed every moment of our days.

It’s shocking to know that now, the island is out of food, with little water and desperate to still restore power to millions of citizens.

I will keep praying for you Puerto Rico that God will help you to restore your land. Stay strong. Help is on the way.
