Greeting and Blessing from our Lord Jesus Christ,

As I am here sitting in my apartment in San Antonio, Texas I am thinking about the disciples. Jesus purposely chose those 12 men, which is extremely uncommon during Jesus time period.  During those time you begin to learning the craft of your father, like Jesus did as a carpenter from his earthly farther Jesse. Likewise the disciple learned there craft as fishermen, tax collectors, tent makers, whatever it was they specialize in they had learned it from about age 10-13. The men were chosen at an older age, the one that the church didn’t want they were put through an extreme training program like no other person had seen before.  Just looking through the entire gospel we see the just endowed with all types of experiences from casting out demons, healing of the deaf, blind, to the dead being raised to Jesus walking on the waters, and calming the raging sea.  This was extreme training that lasted 40 months (3 1/2 years). I can relate to being in a process of training over the last 40 months of my life.  It has been some of the most difficult times in my entire life. Seeing people that I cared about who have been abused in all aspect of life, to personally being robbed, losing jobs, being injured, being without food, to losing people I care about in a relationships. Like the disciple who were traveling with Jesus, experienced near death experienced, terrible killing diseases, massive crowds, poor living conditions, having seeing there teacher being killed. You may be experiencing some of those things like I have experienced, or the disciple. A lost to a loved one, lost job, going through and ugly divorce, or being injured. It has a greater purpose, after the disciple when through the training program of Jesus they made such of an impacted on this world that we are still feeling the ramifications of there training that Jesus put them through. Just like us as we are tested, have trials, and even tribulations in our life. Those are the times we are being taught that God has a great purpose in our life.  We may not understand what is going on because the Word of God states that we don’t know the thoughts of God.

Isa 55:8-9

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.

We just need to trust the is the Master is the Master, because He know what is going to happen. He created us and know the plans for our lives! He knows best for us.

Dear Heavenly Father,

As people read this blog, I pray that you just endow them with a peace and understanding that you know what is best for our lives.  We know you selected the disciple for a reason like you selected us to be apart of your wonderful kingdom.  We know you have greater plans for our lives, and ask that you keep training us and showing us that your always around us.  Keep us safe, and mold us more like your son Jesus, we love you Father! We ask all these thing in your beloved son Jesus. Amen

Greeting and Blessing From Our Lord Jesus Christ,

This is my first blog post since I was posting blogs back on Myspace. That was so long ago! I’ve gone through so many life experience during that time. I’ve moved from North Carolina to Texas. Have had many friendships come and go, seen many life struggles along the way. One thing that has remained since all these things have happen since those blogging day’s back in 2006 on Myspace. Is the true reason for Christmas. Is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

During many of those times I felt along and really didn’t see any point to life. Until Recently I found a little nugget of life from the Word of God. It stems from Matthew Chapter 1 Verse 21-23

21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”
22 So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying:
23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”

What caught my attention was verse 23, where Matthew was pulling scripture out of the Old Testament Scripture of the fulfillment of our Lord and Savior. With Jesus being called “Immanuel” which is translated, “God with us.” How powerful is that, God is always with us during the hardest part of our lives, to the mountain top experiences. I haven’t realized that more until the last 40 months of my life. I’ve seen many changes in my life during these months, from having financial hardship, being laid off from my job’s, my truck being broke into, breaking down, and even catching fire, through relationship that didn’t pan out, to being broken mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I’ve been through a lot, like wise everyone of you reading has been too, through either a let down in a significance other, a falling marriage, children who are driving you nuts, a lost of a job, or whatever situation we all have been there. We have seen the ugliest of ugly during those times in the deep valleys. We can rest assure that Immanuel,God with us, is there when we don’t see Him. Immanuel,God with us, will see us through relationships that are hurtful. Immanuel,God with us, will be there when the outlook looks dim, and there seems to be no hope. Immanuel, God with us, will show us that every part of our lives He is there with us. Like in the 1 chapter of Joshua, God spoke to Joshua saying I will never leave you or forsake you. They won the battles as long as they continued to follow God. He was with King David as he took down the Giant Goliath, With Paul as He was in prison. Where ever you are God is With US! We as believer’s must encourage one another with the Word of God to help pull us along to help our brother’s and sister through the struggles. Pointing them to our Savior Jesus! Just Imagine where we can be if we all pointed people to Christ Love.

Dear Heavenly Father,

As people read this blog, blessed them, allow your comfort to just engross them in a way they haven’t felt you before, bring peace to there situation, and allow your will to be done in their lives. Allow your grace and mercy just to follow continually in there lives, we ask these things in Your Son Jesus, Amen
