MAKE IT COUNT

Listen to the Parable of the Ten Servants in Luke 19, (NLT) form the mouth of Jesus. First I want you to understand that when Jesus speaks in parables, you have to listen with a spiritual sense. In other words, He is saying a short simple story intended to illustrate a moral or religious lesson. It’s an earthly story with a spiritual truth.

Jesus said, “A nobleman was called away to a distant empire to be crowned king and then return. Before he left, he called together ten of his servants and divided among them ten pounds of silver, saying, ‘Invest this for me while I am gone.’ But his people hated him and sent a delegation after him to say, ‘We do not want him to be our king.”

So many great gifts and talents we were blessed with. For a person to say I don’t have the ability to accomplish the job should be illegal and category as outlaw. Jesus left great gifts for the Kingdom of God and marvelous talents for the world. What more could we ask for. He said utilizes those abilities unti…

How do you view the call of God on your life?

Working for God is always seen as working in a Cemetery for a lifetime. Many people think of the call of God as a judgment God uses to make them unhappy - to doom them to poverty - and to choke the fun out of he/she marriage, parenting and work. This is very for the truth, why should God's work, be viewed as anything less than an awesome adventurous way to live?
Why do so many contemporary believers sigh for something that might allow them to have lost faith in the important of working for the Lord?

One of the problems is that your call may have become musty or dim or far-fetched.

It seems like many has lost that inner explosion of the reason why they doing what they do for God, and apparently they never missed it. Some have forgotten how persistent the call was when they heard it the first time. Still others, question if a call they heard in their childhood or adolescence has relevance now. Many have forgotten the power of a few ordinary folks like you and me to change the world,…

Moving Past Adversity: Living life one more time

The truth of the mater is that anything worth having is going to be a struggle, life is not a hop skip and a jump, and you can’t walk into your backyard and pick success from the success tree. So let’s face it, prepared to do some work.

First, let go of the old things that you keep storing up and keeping a record of, you can’t grow and keep old wrongs/hurts at the same time. These past negative thinking only hinder your progress and forward movement rather than help it.

Take some time and learn how to resolve your problems in a quick and effective way, and get beyond them.

According to Carl Mathis' book Life is What You Make It, http://amzn.to/a8sjDU turning things around for the better (and for yourself) after struggles and past situations isn’t easy but it can be done - with the right outlook. What the book really teaches is acceptance and understanding of the situation you are in right now, then working through that to get to the other side.

SHRED THE HEAVY LOAD

For you to be able to move on towards your purpose, you must also know how to put aside those things that aren’t working for you. You have to keep on looking at your life to determine what is right in your life and what has to be shredded. God created you for a purpose, greatness is destined for your life. When making decisions, ask your self, how does the choice I am about to make affect the overall outcome of my purpose.

I have seen many people who were faced with this question, but neglected to ask them self, and those who did ask did not take heed to the answer. As a result, the people they associate them self with, dragged them down and hold them back from reaching the height point of their success. By not shredding the heavy load, you place your self in the category of causing hindrance instead of helping. This causes you to wreak ministry and cause damage to your life’s goal. In the end, there were lift with sadness and bitterness in their old age, when they could have been enj…
