Too many gods ….

Bloglets, howdy do? If you’re not directly in the path of Sandy please don’t find one reason to complain. Ok enough of that! It has been a few days, had to do a lot of thinking.

Today we will talk about the difficulty of serving too many gods. There was a time I had the god of perfume, designer clothes, shoes and bags just to name a few. Oh yeah and the god of sex I mentioned in other post. They all had their fair share of destruction in my life.

When serving those gods I would NOT put any money in for tithe only give a small offering. Not proud just being honest about where I WAS. Those gods also made me a slave to debt.

Debt is the god that gets a lot of our money. We get deep in debt to live nice, ride nice, eat nice, dress nice. This god bring on stress, depression, anger and anxiety. All out of the will of God for your life. The god of debt still hovers over me.

I’ve grown to a place where I can look nice on a BUDGET still working on that in the grocery department. However last year my friends introduced me to the THRIFT STORE. Takes a lot of time and work BUT you don’t feel stressed when you hand over your debt card. This was an easy god for me to get rid of.

The most difficult for me was the sexual god. I felt like I had to have sex, I felt it was the way you show love. Thought it was the way you keep a man. I was wrong so wrong. That god just made the emotional attachment awful. Sex often clouds your head and you will often make irrational choices.

Let me explain how often have you stayed with someone who treated you like crap? Even if he does NOT beat you, cheating is often over looked when sex is involved. I’ve had my fair share of those relationships. The only time we had any form of happiness was while having sex. I made myself feel I needed it. Sexual healing with NO vows leads to destruction.

Sex was an addiction for me. Like the alcoholic needs a drink,  I needed to feel the warmth of a man. I didn’t complete a 12 step program, I gave my addiction to GOD and not my flesh. This also took years of being hurt and left for destruction.

Why SEX??? It’s cold outside and Fall /Winter people fall in love, then Spring comes and someone needs distance. Following trends leads to disappointment at times. Just because everyone else is falling prey to “cuffing season” you don’t have too. If he is really into you, he would be glad you want to keep the cookies in the jar.

Tonight think about everything you love more than God. Might not be sex, might be a social network, video game, food or yourself. Either way God calls us to serve Him. Pleasing God should be your focus. God is calling us to listen and obey His voice! No matter who/what your god is you still have time.

Honestly God already knows who/what you love more than Him, he is too gentle to force himself in. He will wait just don’t wait to late.

The scripture for the might is;

Jeremiah 35:15 NIV

Again and again I sent all my servants the prophets to you. They said, “Each of you must turn from your wicked ways and reform your actions; do not follow other gods to serve them. Then you will live in the land I have given to you and your ancestors.” But you have not paid attention or listened to me.

White as Snow …

Bloglets, how are you today? I am well off work today!  Still have a million things to do.

Disclaimer, I’m asking you to get past the grammatical errors and understand I write from my heart! As you see most of my post come from my phone. Thanks in advance.

This week I had the pleasure of sharing some of my testimony with a young lady. Let me paint the picture, three months ago I told her I was ready when she was. God ALWAYS shows you people who use to be you. I saw me all in her instead of passing judgment I needed to past knowledge.

So often we either forget where God has saved us from or don’t want people to know. To deny the work GOD has completed in you is denying the power of the Holy Spirit. Some are embarrassed, my dear you have NOTHING to be embarrassed about. When GOD picked you, your past was NO secret to Him.

God is omnipresent meaning He sees all. God does NOT slumber or sleep. He is the author of your story. Your destiny was written before you were born.  I am sure you get the picture, you may have skeletons with the people on earth,  God has the key to the closet.

Beloved it would be wise NOT to allow pride to consume you. Never forget the sins of your past. That’s NOT the same as reliving them. I had to steal the next piece from our President, “GODNESIA!” Forgetting who you use to be and all GOD has saved you from. We all know he called it Romenisia.

Your testimony is what will draw people to Christ, not your expensive clothes or fancy building. Please my dear honesty is the best policy! In my other post you will see I’m far from perfect and I’ve made some foolish decisions.

Let me keep it real with you below you will find a few things I’ve done. Not proud just want you to see GOD can use who He wants. Ladies if God used Rahab the prostitute He can use any of us. Her obedience in hiding the spies lead to her being free.

I had my first child when I was 15, yes you read that right. Aborted my second child when I was 17, gave birth when I was 23, aborted my fourth when I was 24 and gave birth to my last when I was 25. Am I proud? How deceptive would it be for me to judge the single parent with 5 children? Very much so and even more deceptive if I talked about her for having children with more than one man. Like Paul had a thorn, this is one of many thorns. I only shared this to show you God forgives ALL sins! This was the hardest for me to get over.

I used to fell like GOD could never used me. I thought why? I took life He created inside of me. I was ashamed and embarrassed. Until God reminded me He is faithful and just to forgive ALL sins not SOME sins.

What is GOD asking you to do? Has God told you to share your story with a young lady? Has He put it on your heart to call and check on someone? Remember obedience is better than sacrifice! Today think about the one young lady who gets under tour skin the most,  how much of youself do you see in her? Chances are she may need a chapter or two out of your book!  Sharing is caring.

It humbles me to share my life with you. One thing you gotta remember some will gossip and others will take and apply what is needed. NEVER allow the gossip folks to keep you from obeying God! Let them advertise the good He has done in you.

Scripture for this post;

Jeremiah 33:9 MSG

“But now take another look. I’m going to give this city a thorough renovation, working a true healing inside and out. I’m going to show them life whole, life brimming with blessings. I’ll restore everything that was lost to Judah and Jerusalem. I’ll build everything back as good as new. I’ll scrub them clean from the dirt they’ve done against me. I’ll forgive everything they’ve done wrong, forgive all their rebellions. And Jerusalem will be a center of joy and praise and glory for all the countries on earth. They’ll get reports on all the good I’m doing for her. They’ll be in awe of the blessings I am pouring on her.

Yes ma’am!  God will do just what the Bible says! He is a promise keeper! He has NOT let me down yet!

Sincerely Yours,

Special K!
