Hallelujah!… Got resources… the Lord is blessing His children, the Lord is call’in His children! Gathering us under His wings. He would that none should perish… Every second is a blessing! Every mistakes been a lesson. I can hardly imagine a life where the Lord did not lay out things as plainly as He has… I mean… who saw this coming??? Not me… Had no idea I’d go from literally grating the remnants of heart I had on concrete and rubble, to a change of residence, to these relationships, to the growth (spiritual, physical, mental), the sensitivity, renewal, perspective on life that’s both profitable and progressive. The support is unreal… for real.
So, today, I found out that I’ma be getting on with the (DubbSquared) company… Hiring process (paperwork), Friday… (This Friday) my class is going to end just in time for the next class I need… bout’ the same time I’m starting work… insurance (auto) is gon’ be paid tomorrow by my own hand, (not without God making this possible), all the way up 6 months… and I’ll be in a car by Wednesday. No Joke!
Lord God, You are good to us… thank You for Your grace and mercy… thank You for helping us remember to pray… thwarting the enemy’s plan to divide the house.
It’ll be louder in here, momentarily… my bros. will be home, fresh out of the church they visited tonight… I’ve just gotten home from the ‘OC:… the chapel was pretty much -full-… there was about 30 men there, and these 30 men are in their first 30 days of their program at the ‘OC’, and many of them took their first steps toward living lives devoted to Christ. Just to be present and see these things taking place, meeting new people, seeing the gratitude… it’s all a blessing in itself… seeing God working on the hearts of these men replenishes and refreshes my spirit…
There’s so much going to happen and so soon that I can hardly believe it. In time, I truly believe my life is going to take on a very different likeness than one I have ever anticipated…
Man… God is good. I had about a lb. of beef potted up, but realized I had no tomato sauce… I was ‘messed up’… Ha! After the thought dawned on me to check other cabinets around the house… I found some tomato sauce! I was so excited, so yea, we’re doing the spaghetti thing tonight! Yesss!!!
Thank You father for nourishment and life abundant and healthy relationships.
Good morning Jesus!.. Today is Saturday and the weather is absolutely fantastic… Fall is slowly but surely setting in and as old as I am (28), I can’t help but detect the nostalgia that is associated with the ‘state fair’ of my youth, fall festivals, and concerts (that I never attended, but always wanted to go to.) :), My past is undeniable, my future is uncertain, and today is unprecedented, but here nonetheless.
Lord, some days I write, for fear that I won’t (write)…some days, I write simply because You never said to stop…some days it’s simply because I have the ability to do so… If nothing more than proof of my existence and more importantly Yours… No matter what this life brings or what this world says, help me never forget Your words and promises to me… How that, ‘none of this is for no reason.’ Every cut, every bruise, chipped tooth, cracked bone, swollen lip, busted knuckle, cold night, wet night, strained muscle, broken relationship, moment of despair, of contrite wandering is for waste or mere points of reference… it is and always will be for Your glory. .. The spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound. –Isaiah 61:1
Thank You Lord for every disciple/ servant that walked before us.
August 2017 has had it’s space in history, and it is surely coming to an end. This month has been a good one… especially with the excitement of the eclipse and getting closer to beginning my career…
Typical Friday, good Friday, bright Friday!!! ‘Cleaning up the house’ Friday… bout’ to go to class- Friday… During class we will probably work on circuit boards… (makeshift boards where we configure circuits and rearrange them, etc.) We got a new guy in today, which is awesome, cause we’ve been meeting him, and working with him, on and off, for a few weeks… he made a commitment to join the house… and we’re all pretty much excited for the guy… because we all have a decent understanding of the opportunities that come with the commitment of living here, and furthermore… serving the Lord.
From the ‘jump-stiggity-‘, I was saying it… all this ‘right here’ is not for ‘no reason’ at all… small time- short time… we (me, myself, and I) will be making a break for it… it’s coming up on the time to fly… got news yesterday that the teacher for our Tech classes is doing everything he can to wrap our classes up by September 13th, which, in turn, will get the ball-rolling on beginning my career with one of these electrical contractors… shooting for ‘Dub-Squared’ (self-created alis for company.)
So, very, very, excited that everything is about to ‘pay-off’ and this little current is about to flow into a greater one… I’m not scared- I’m not in a hurry… I am excited and dialing everything in- with the assistance of the Holy Ghost… straight-up!!! I don’t know what’s coming, but I’m more than excited bout’ it- bout’ it!!
Thank You Jesus for paying the price for this new life. Never let this fire of desire- die or subside! Let my cry be heavy, Father… and reach many… Help me follow You… and walk this thang’ out… Let Your will be done Jesus… strengthen my hands- strengthen my knees.
Short time before a mentor of mine scoops me to go out and grab something to eat before service. There’s plenty of food here, but going out with mentor gives us time to work on some kind of relationship and provides us with time of fellowship… fellowship with other believers, I’ve come to understand, is vital to our spiritual livelihood… we are designed to function in community not isolation… (maybe, with different capacities and functions…) but to live completely apart from the ‘body’ is… means death for spiritual growth, and complacency…etc…
Ultimately, all things are at a degree of peace, that I am incredibly grateful for… One of my three brothers (biologicals…aka Bio’s) had a successful and yet trying surgery… Praise God! He is recovering now… another is working on getting registered for another school he is to enroll in. (I’m still incredibly disappointed about the decision that was made…him leaving his initial college of choice… but now is certainly no time to jump on him…) I’ma just stay on my ‘ducks’ and when he happens to glance my way… Maybe, just maybe he’ll see that maybe it’ll do him some good to pay a little bit of attention… to the hard heads that came before him… when the day comes… I just wanna be able to point him straight… and not be caught up in the world myself…
Another of my three brothers is preparing for an upcoming audition for a popular t.v. show… I’m super proud of him and my other brothers… Thank You God for what You’ve done, what You’re doing, and what You’re gonna do, Lord…
Love You in Jesus’ name, Amen.
