Sweet Surrender

Today's church service was beautiful a word came forth about faith and trusting God and giving him the situations in your life that are too big to handle and then the speaker our Assistant Pastor talked about how the disciples had been fishing all night and had caught nothing and when Jesus asked them to cast their nets they were obedient and cast and the amount of fish that they caught was so many they could not draw the net back in. Then we sang I Surrender All...I love to sing that song. Not only should we surrender our will to God but we should also surrender our burdens, and cares to him and allow him to fix it whatever it is.
Matthew 11: 28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden , and I will give you rest .
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

I Surrender all
All to Jesus I surrender
all to him I freely give;
I will ever love and trust him,
in his presence daily live.
I surrender all, I surrender all,
all to thee, my blessed Savior,
I surrender all.
All to Jesus I surrender;
humbly at his feet I bow,
worldly pleasures all forsaken;
take me, Jesus, take me now.
All to Jesus I surrender;
make me, Savior, wholly thine;
fill me with thy love and power;
truly know that thou art mine.
All to Jesus I surrender;
Lord, I give myself to thee;
fill me with thy love and power;
let thy blessing fall on me.
All to Jesus I surrender;
now I feel the sacred flame.
O the joy of full salvation!
Glory, glory, to his name!

Unusual Provisions

I had a dream the other night that me and some others (I can't remember who the others were) were at the edge of the shore of a beach and God was speaking to us and telling us what to prophesy and when we did gold nuggets began to wash up on the shore. It reminded me of the story in the bible where gold was found in a fish's mouth to provide provision for a debt owed. Sometime God will provide in a way we never expected him to.
Matthew 17:24-27
And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute?
He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers?
Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free.
Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.

Revelation Chapt 2:
1 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write ; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; 2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: 3 And hast borne , and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured , and hast not fainted . 4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. 5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen , and repent , and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent . 6 But this thou hast , that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate . 7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write ; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; 13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest , even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth . 14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication . 15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate . 16 Repent ; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. 17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written , which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
Revelation Chapter 3
7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write ; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth , and no man shutteth ; and shutteth , and no man openeth ; 8 I know thy works: behold , I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. 9 Behold , I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie ; behold , I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 11 Behold , I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast , that no man take thy crown. 12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. 13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Revelation Chapter 22
1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: 4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. 5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle , neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light : and they shall reign for ever and ever. 6 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done . 7 Behold , I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. 8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen , I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. 9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. 10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 11 He that is unjust , let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy , let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. 12 And, behold , I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be . 13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. 16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. 17 And the Spirit and the bride say , Come . And let him that heareth say , Come . And let him that is athirst come . And whosoever will , let him take the water of life freely. 18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. 20 He which testifieth these things saith , Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come , Lord Jesus. 21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Sending You To The Nations

I like to drive and pray and on my way to church this morning I wanted to take the scenic route along the water and God told me to take the interstate. I heard the Lord say "I'm taking you on highways and intersections that will lead you to your destiny; I'm extending traveling mercies ;(Then in church) He said I am taking you to the nations; don't get off and go onto the wrong path; you don't have to take chances and be uncertain; I will no longer keep you hidden; I'm sending you to the nations; God told me to look around while I was in church and he said this is your family; just as I left my family and joined myself to the apostles you shall; this is your family...I believe this word wasn't just for me I hope it speaks to you in your situation too.

Somebody Prayed For Me

There is a song that I don't know all the lyrics to so I will loosely quote it...Somebody prayed for me, had me on there mind, took the time to pray for me, I'm so glad, I'm so glad. I'm so glad they prayed for me. Amen to that! Reflecting back on my week so far a day in particular stands out. Thursday was one heck of a day! I know someone was praying for me because it was as if the pressure that I have been under came to a head and I felt like I was just going to explode (that's the only way I can think of describing what I was feeling). I wasn't going to go off on anyone or anything but it was as if I had just had enough. All of a sudden total peace came over me and the heaviness I was feeling was lifted. I knew someone had to be praying for me. I know my pastors keep me covered in prayer so I in turn prayed for them. Let's keep each other lifted in prayer yall especially our leaders.
