You can tell everybody – He’s the one

Well you can tell everybody
Yeah you can tell everybody
Go ahead and tell everybody
He’s the one, He’s the one , He’s the one
Yes He is, Yes He is, Yes He is.

I believe in Him no matter what life may bring me
Praised him to all who hear my voice
Had my faith tested but never did I fold.

Well it ain’t that hard when you believe
Somewhere I heard that life is a test
I been through the worst but I still give my best
God stands with me through the storms
Then he works it out so I know I’m blessed.

Stand up now and face the sky
Don’t let your troubles consume you
It’s time to do what must be done, come home and praise him
For He is the King of all the earth; Sing praises with a skillful psalm.

Well you can tell everybody
Yeah you can tell everybody
Go ahead and tell everybody
He’s the one, He’s the one , He’s the one
Yes He is, Yes He is, Yes He is.

He’s got all the answers to your questions
He has established His throne in the heavens, And His sovereignty rules over all.
If we confession our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
For He is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know His name name trust in Him, for He has never forsaken those who seek Him.

He’s the one
Go ahead and tell everybody what I’m saying y’all
He’s the one, He’s the one , He’s the one
Yes He is, Yes He is, Yes He is

6:00 a.m. and I know he will work it out

The alarm goes off at 6:00 a.m. and as I open my eyes blessed to have another day on this earth I immediately smile armed with the knowledge that without Him I wouldn’t be alive.  I rub the remnants of sleep out of and raise my eyes to praise him for I understand I may not always be worthy but know that I am his child and He still loves me. Today like all days Satan will lurk in the shadows attempting to cast doubt on my faith through pain and angst. This I do not worry about because I understand that the Lord is the greater force. So I simply turn my troubles over to Him confident He will work them out.  Because I know it is true that to be without is not His will and there is a cattle on a thousand hill and they are all mine to claim in his holy name.  So I praise Him for what he has given me and for what he will give me as I open my soul to the blessing He will rain down on me.

That moment of Doubt

You keep trying.

You wait for that moment of doubt to pounce.

You keep putting obstacles in my path. As soon as I clear one you are quick to put up another.

But what you forget is I am human and doubt is part of who I am.

But in that moment of doubt my savior does not forsake me, he does not fear a little doubt, he embraces it.

In that moment of doubt, I look to my savior for strength.

In that moment of doubt, I remember it is my savior who created me

In that moment of doubt, I remember it is my savior who created this wonderful planet I live on.

In that moment of doubt, I remember it is my savior who allowed me to wake this morning.

In that moment of doubt, I remember it is not for me to know why this may be happening now but that in my faith it is to believe that He is working to make it better and I simply need to be patient and let Him work.

So, keep trying because I will look you directly in the eye and exclaim you have no power over my savior.

You cannot defeat him unless I willing turn away from Him and accept you and that will never happen. Because in that moment of doubt I know He stands behind me keeping me strong and faithful.

He is my savior.

Now You Can’t Leave

Satan walked in a church with his demon followers in tow. He huffed and puffed  and told the worshippers now I’ve got you. I’m going to bring so much evil into your life you won’t know what to do. The worshippers simply giggled.  Don’t you fear me Satan asked? Don’t you know who I am and the pain I can bring you? That’s when a worshipper stood up and said you must not have seen who we came in with. Right then the back door opened and in walked several angels followed by the Lord.  The Lord walked over to the front door locked it and looked right in Satan’s face and calmly told him now you can’t leave. Satan knew right then he had made a mistake.  He had chosen to challenge the faith and resolve of true believers and he knew what would happen next.  What had always happened to him in this situation. The Lord would vanquish him yet again because even Satan knew when faced with the faith of the strong good always triumphed over evil. 

Prayer and Meditation. Medicine for the Mind, Body and soul

I have recently taken to a form of prayer and mediation. I find a quiet place, sit up straight and plant my feet firmly so that the positive energy of the world flows up through the ground and through my body.  I endeavor to clear my mind of all distractions and close my eyes. I visualize myself relaxed and smiling as the hand of the Lord touches and begins to heal me. Heal me physically, heal me mentally and heal me spiritually. Then I pray these words

Heavenly Father I ask that you lay your healing hands upon my heart so that it is made stronger and able to carry the blood of life that you have blessed us with through out my entire body. I ask this Heavenly Fatger so that I may live a long life to shout your praise to all who will hear me.  I ask this Heavenly Father so that through the special gifts you have bestowed upon me I can share them with others so that they too can see your greatness and be motivated and inspired to help others reach for the stars. I ask this so that I can be an example to never give up your faith and trust in you even when it appears things are not going as well as they would like in the moment.  I ask this Heavenly Father so that I may awake each day blessed with the senses you have so blessed me with in order to take in and appreciate the beauty and wonders of this magnificent world you have created for us. I ask this Heavenly Father so that I may continue to enjoy the fellowship and love of family, friends and even strangers who you have so seen fit to place in my path as I travel this spiritual journey. I ask this Heavenly Father because in my faith I know that while man can help me to maintain my health, my mind and my spirituality only you who can truly heal my mind, body and soul.  I ask all of this in your name Heavenly Father.  Amen

Then I open my eyes pause for a moment to allow the energy of the Lord to travel through my body.  After a brief moment of silence and reflection with the energy of the Lord flowing through me I close my eyes again and say the following: “The Lord is healing me  I am getting stronger every day.” I repeat this for 5, 10, 15 minutes whatever I am most comfortable with that day.   When I am done I remain sitting quietly letting the power of the power of the Lord flow throughout my body.  Finally I stand up and go about my day relaxed, renews and emboldened by the knowledge that I am in God’s world and in his world nothing is impossible.

Visualize not what we are told is possible but what we are told isn’t

Came down to the promenade where I am currently undergoing physical rehabilitation by myself this evening. Sat down and endeavored to clear my mind. I began to count each breath I took as a gazed out at the Hudson river. A sense of calm overtook me and I could feel the weight of the my worries being lifted.

I truly believe that while traditional medicine and a healthy diet are essential in MAINTAINING my health. It is only through my mind and my spirituality will I HEAL. Doctors may say reversal of my condition are not possible that through medication I can control it but never eridicate it but the truth is miracles happen every day and only the Lord has the power to say what is and what isn’t possible

God has blessed us all with a mind unlike any of his other creations. It is up to us to unlock the full potential of our minds, to allow it to visualize not only what we already know but to let in and visualize what we don’t know. To envision what science has conditioned us to believe is the impossible.

Moving forward I will endeavor each day to allow my mind to step outside of my physical being and to visualize my heart beating strongly and me being healthy. With God’s light guiding me I believe I will get better. He has brought me this far. He has given me a new life. September 1st represents my birthday,  My first in this awaken state of spirituality and mind and I plan on taking full advantage of the second life

He has blessed me with.

The lesson the six million dollar man taught us about faith

Steve Austin, Astronaut. A man barely alive. We can rebuild him. We have the technology. We can make him better than he was. Better, stronger, faster.

I may be dating myself but those were the opening lines of the 1970’s television show the Six Million Dollar Man. Austin’s rebuild body with its machine parts enabled him to have superhuman strength and speed, as well as other powers. With these powers, Steve goes to work for the Office of Scientific Information, battling evil for the good of mankind.  Looking back it was pretty cheesy, as most of 70s television was. But there is nothing cheesy about the show’s message when applied to our faith. 

No matter how faithful we believe ourselves to be in times of darkness many of us lose much of that faith and begin to question why the Lord would abandon us. Question if the Lord even exists.  In times of darkness the reality is for many of us our faith is barely alive.

Thankfully the Lord has the power to rebuild our faith.  Make it better, stronger, more spiritual and for far less than six million dollars.

It written in Isaiah 40:29-31 that:

29  He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. 30  Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: 31  But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew [1] their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

It is never to late to praise the Lord. To ask Him for forgiveness for doubting Him. To pray for Him to rain down upon us the strength to renew our faith. To make it better than before. We only need to remember we are His children and he loves us unconditionally.

Isaiah 54:10:

10  For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you.

Remember with the Lord on our side there is no reason to fear anything. There is no reason to abandon our faith. But if we do He has promised us He will help us to renew it.

Isaiah 41:10:

10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

When the Lord strengthen us and provides us with a renewed faith it is our responsibility to pay it forward, to use our renewed faith and go out and praise His name to others. To go to work in his ministry battling evil for the good of mankind.

A Christian, bitter and lost, their faith barely alive. He can rebuild him. Make his faith better than it was before. Better, more spiritual, stronger than it was before.
