HEAVENLY; BEAUTIFUL, ADMIRED AND ADORED;
A SON, A DAUGHTER, A MOTHER, A FATHER,
A SISTER, A BROTHER, ALL ARE FAMILY.
ANCESTRAL LINEAGE WE ALL BELONG TO YOU.
BROKEN; TORN, TATTERED, ABUSED, SCARED,
NAKED AND SHATTERED, WE ARE YOURS, EVEN
WHEN WE ARE DAMAGED. YOUR CREATION,
YOUR POWER, WE ARE YOUR GROWING FLOWERS.
YOU ARE OUR FATHER,
OUR GODSHIP. WE ARE
STRETCHED TO SEE THE
MIRROR ON THE INSIDE.
BLOODSHED; WAR, SCARS, SCRAPES, AND MORE,
WE HAVE BEEN SPLATTERED ON EARTH’S FLOOR.
GAPING HOLES IN OUR HEARTS, WE HAVE ALLOWED
OUR ACTIONS TO TEAR US APART. WE ARE YOURS.
COMPASSIONATE; LOVING, UN-JUDGING, HUMBLE
BEINGS, WE ARE REPLICAS OF YOUR SPIRIT. MOLDED
IN YOUR LIKENESS, AND CREATED BY YOUR HANDS;
WE ARE TOLD TO DUPLICATE YOUR STAND.
ANGRY; EVIL, DISOBEDIENT,
AND STUBBORN, YET WE
SCREAM WHEN WE ARE IN
TROUBLE. SOMETIMES WE
CAUSE OUR OWN PAIN,
SHAME AND GRIEF. BUT
LIKE A DAD, YOU RUN TO
THE RESCUE WITH A
BLANKET OF RELIEF.
TENDER; KIND, STERN, UNCHANGING AND PLEASANT,
YOU HAVE BROKEN AND MENDED US TOGETHER.
YOU HAVE ASKED FOR OUR HAND, BY SAYING,
“I WANT YOU TO LOOK LIKE ME, I CALL YOU FRIEND.”
WE ARE THE PUPPETS, YOU ARE THE MASTER, EITHER WE MOVE, DANCE
AND FLOW TO THE BEAT OF YOUR STRINGS; OR YOU CUT THE STRINGS
AND WE STOP, FALL AND MOVE NO MORE.
EITHER WAY, YOUR WILL BE DONE; YOUR STRINGS, YOUR TIMING,
YOUR MOVEMENT AND YOUR GUIDING, YOUR WAY, AND YOUR PLAN;
YOUR PATH AND YOUR COMMAND.
IT HAS ALREADY BEEN SCHEDULED; HOW WE, YOUR PEOPLE WILL FOLLOW YOU;
SOME HAPPILY TRAVELING YOUR ROAD, AND OTHERS ANGRY AND COLD. SEE
THIS IS NOTHING NEW, EVEN THE MOON, SUN AND STARS MUST OBEY YOU.
FULL OF LIFE IS HOW IT STARTS; A COMPLETED LIFE IS HOW IT ENDS. THESE ARE
YOUR STRINGS AND WE MUST DANCE. WALTZ TO THE PERFECTION OF YOUR VOICE,
AND WE MUST NOT SACRIFICE, BECAUSE WE HAVE A CHOICE.
HANDS HELD HIGH, WE MUST SURRENDER, AND WE MUST UNDERSTAND YOU ARE A
MASTER THAT’S TENDER. YOU’VE PAID THE COST TO BE MASTER AND HOST;
SUBMISSION IS OUR ONLY HOPE.
FEELING THE VIBE AS WE ARE WASHED CLEAN AND MADE WHOLE;
AT THAT MOMENT SOMETHING HAS TAKEN OVER OUR SOUL.
WE MUST UNDERSTAND THAT ALL THE MOVEMENTS
ARE WORTH IT, BECAUSE YOU ARE
THE PUPPET MASTER ON PURPOSE!
HELPING YOU TO STAND TALL, IT TELLS YOU WHO YOU ARE. GIVING HOPE AND GRACE, IT SHOWS YOU HOW TO TAKE YOUR PLACE. UNDERSTANDING THAT THERE WILL BE GOOD DAYS AND BAD DAYS; LIVING, DYING, SMILES, GIGGLES AND HUGS, BRINGING SO MUCH LOVE.
THERE WILL BE TIMES OF POUTING AND LESS SHOUTING. THERE WILL BE ANGER AND PLENTY OF DANGER. THE DAYS WILL BE BRIGHT AS YOU SEE THE MORNING SUN; THE MOON WILL RISE AS YOU PREPARE FOR DARKNESS. THE RAIN WILL COME TO QUENCH THE FLOWERS THIRST.
AS YOU GROW TO LOVE WHAT HAS BEEN CREATED, THERE IS A SENSE OF POWER THAT FLOWS THROUGH TIME. EYE OPENERS; TEAR JERKERS, BRIDAL SHOWERS, BABY SHOWERS, HOME GOINGS AND GRAVE SITES, GRADUATIONS, AND BIRTHDAY PARTIES ARE FOR UNIFYING, CRYING AND SHARING. THERE IS NO REASON TO STRESS OR BECOME WEAK, IT IS A GIVEN.
THE SENSE OF FULFILLMENT TRANSITIONS IN AND THEN IT LEAVES IN A HURRY. ACCOMPLISHMENTS ARISE AND THEN THEY FALL, AND SIMMER INTO TIME. THERE IS NO REASON TO PUT ON A SOUR FACE, YOU MUST NOT CRY. THERE’S A REASON WHY; YOU SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THERE IS AN ENDING. THE EVIDENCE HAS BEEN EXPLOITED SINCE THE BEGINNING.
WHY; FRET, CRY, SOB, COMPLAIN OR BECOME MISERABLE AND STRESSED? AT YOUR BEST YOU PASSED THE TEST. AT YOUR WORST YOU WERE CALLED FRIEND AND MADE PART OF THE CHURCH. TO SOMEONE YOU MAY NOT BE THE FONDEST, THE BRIGHT SIDE IS; THERE IS STRENGTH IN BEING HONEST.
HEADED TOWARDS THE BANK OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, OBEDIENCE HAD A JOB TO DO. HE WAS PASSING THROUGH TOWNS, MAKING SURE HE DIDN’T MISS ANYONE DURING HIS ROUNDS. THERE WERE A FEW SCATTERED HERE AND THERE, BUT WHEN HE LOOKED BEHIND HIM THERE WERE A MILLION STARES. SOME WERE CURIOUS TO SEE IF IT WAS REALLY HIM. SOME WERE FOLLOWING, BECAUSE THEY BELIEVED. OTHERS RAISED QUESTION, LOOKING FOR A SIGN.
OBEDIENCE WAS ON THE MOVE AND ON TIME. PUSHING THROUGH TO GET TO EACH LEVEL, HE MADE SURE THAT HE STEPPED OVER THE DEVIL. A STRAIGHT PATH WAS HIS DESTINATION. NO SIDETRACKING, NO DETOURS, OBEDIENCE HAS A CAUSE. HE NEVER FEARS, HE JUST KEEPS CHECKING HIS EARS; LISTENING FOR THE BOSS, IF HE DOESN’T, HE MAY END UP LOST. HE’S POWERFUL IN HIS SENSE OF DIRECTION, HE LISTENS VERY CAREFULLY.
OBEDIENCE IS LEADING HUGE CROWDS ALL OVER THE GLOBE; HE KEEPS GOING IN THE RAIN AND SNOW. HE IS COURAGEOUS AND BOLD. NOTHING CAN STOP HIM OR GET HIM OFF TRACK; ONLY HIS FATHER CAN DO THAT. MAKE ROOM FOR OBEDIENCE, HE’S ON HIS WAY; DON’T MISS HIM, BECAUSE HE WON’T STAY.
HE MOVES THROUGH EVERY PLACE ON EARTH, LIKE A MAGNET, GET BEHIND HIM AND DON’T STAGGER. HE DOESN’T NEED MUCH, HE REALLY HAS ALL HE NEEDS; HIS FATHER, BROTHER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, INDEED. HE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE FOLLOWERS, BUT SOME JUMP IN FRONT OF HIM. PLEASE, DON’T BE ONE OF THEM! STAY BEHIND OBEDIENCE, HE’S ALWAYS THERE WHEN YOU NEED HIM.
He sat down in seat 123-A, and next to him was a man in seat 123-B. Passenger in seat A introduce himself as Bruce. Bruce began to talk about how nervous he was to travel, via plane. He also went on to say, how comfortable the other passengers were.
Bruce said the other passengers had their; iPads, cellphones, laptops and alcoholic beverages to ease their nervousness of flying. He stated that he didn’t want anything to take his mind off of his fear of flying; so he didn’t bring any of his devices.
Bruce continued on about his wife, children and extended family. He never asked passenger “B” his name, and he talked until his mouth was dry. Bruce got the attention of a stewardess, and asked for some water. The stewardess obliged his request.
He gulped down both cups of water and then requested two additional cups. He drank those rather slowly. He continued talking about his family then onto his reason for traveling. Bruce said he was headed to a business meeting.
As Bruce began to think about, who it was that he was sitting next to; he also thought about how much he had talked. When Bruce realized he had been rude to passenger “B,” he asked him to forgive him. He also asked passenger “B” his name.
“I am Jesus,” said passenger “B.” “My name is Jesus. I have been with you the whole time; when you left your house, kissed your family good-bye at the airport, and I even took a seat where I knew you would be sitting. You didn’t need your devices, because I am your comforter.” Bruce was in shock, but he was also relieved, because Jesus had accompanied him and knew his needs.
IN THE FORM OF A KISS, HUG OR TOUCH; A TALK
IS WORTH MUCH. A GENEROUS “I LOVE YOU,”
WILL WORK, I’M SURE IT WOULDN’T HURT.
RECEIVE IT; WHEN GOD
SENDS HELP, IT’S NEEDED.
CARDS, LETTERS, AND PHONE CALLS, CAN HEAL
SOMEONE’S FALL. A WARM MEAL, CLOTHES AND A
SHOWER, CAN MAKE A MAN STAND TALLER.
ACCEPT IT; WHEN GOD
SENDS HELP, DON’T NEGLECT IT.
A BILL PAID, A GIFT BOUGHT, AND A CASE THROWN
OUT OF COURT. MONEY IS GIVEN, AND IT’S NOT TO BE PAID
BACK. IT’S TO HELP SOMEONE GET ON TRACK
SAY THANK YOU; WHEN GOD
SENDS HELP, BE GRATEFUL.
A CLEAN BILL OF HEALTH, HEALED OF A SICKNESS, THERE’S NO
LONGER A WEAKNESS. STRENGTH IS RESTORED, THE MIND IS
AT EASE. GOD “ALLOWED” DOCTORS TO CURE A DISEASE.
STOP GUESSING; WHEN GOD
SENDS HELP, IT’S A BLESSING.
THESE ISSUES, THEY ARE NOT MINE. THEY WERE HANDED DOWN THROUGH FAMILY GENERATIONS.
SOME WERE ATTACHED TO ME THROUGH UNGODLY SOUL TIES.
OTHERS CHASED AFTER ME, BECAUSE SOMEONE PRAYED TO THE ENEMY.
THESE FEARS, THEY ARE NOT MINE.
THESE BONDAGES, THEY ARE NOT MINE.
THESE CHAINS, THEY ARE NOT MINE.
THESE THOUGHTS, THEY ARE NOT MINE.
THESE WORRIES, THEY ARE NOT MINE.
THESE SLEEPLESS NIGHTS, THEY ARE NOT MINE.
THESE BOUTS OF ANGER, THEY ARE NOT MINE.
THESE HATEFUL WORDS, THEY ARE NOT MINE.
THESE STRONGHOLDS, THEY ARE NOT MINE.
THESE ADDICTIONS, THEY ARE NOT MINE.
THESE MOMENTS OF POVERTY, THEY ARE NOT MINE.
SOMEONE LEFT THESE ISSUES FOR ME TO HOLD. TODAY, I GIVE THEM BACK. I HAVE BEEN RESTORED.

SMILING; HOW DO YOU MUSTER IT UP? IS SMILING REAL?
WHAT IS THERE TO SMILE ABOUT? THROUGH THE DARKEST DAYS AND MIDNIGHT HOURS, SMILING WHILE YOU ARE IN A VALLEY SEEMS HOPELESS. SMILING THROUGH SUFFERING TAKES COURAGE. IT TAKES WORK TO SMILE ON THE OUTSIDE, ESPECIALLY IF YOU’RE NOT SMILING ON THE INSIDE.
HOW HARD CAN IT BE, TO LET WHAT’S ON THE INSIDE, BE
SHOWCASED AND FLOW OUT OF YOU BEAUTIFULLY? ACTUALLY, IT’S VERY EASY, TOO EASY. WHAT’S IN NORMALLY OOZES OUT, AND IF THAT’S SO, THEN SMILING HAS TO START FROM THE [INSIDE THEN OUT]. TO TRULY SMILE, YOU HAVE TO BE HAPPY AND HEALED. THE STRENGTH TO SMILE COMES FROM A HAPPY HEART NOT THROUGH A PILL.
THEY WERE GIVEN TO HELP YOU FOLLOW THE COURSE OF
YOUR PREDESTINED LIFE. EACH ONE IS TO BE USED WISELY
IF YOU’RE STRUGGLING TO GAIN YOUR FOOTING, IT MAY BE DUE
TO THE WAY YOU USE THEM. THE CHOICE IS YOURS, BUT THE
PATH HAS BEEN MADE CLEAR.
YOU HAVE TALENTS THAT LEAD TO A CAREER. THEY’RE; GIFTS, TOKENS,
PRESENTS AND COASTERS. IT’S THE RIDE OF A LIFETIME,
PUT IN YOUR HANDS BY THE DIVINE.
MINISTRY, WRITING, SINGING, DANCING AND PRAYING, ARE ALL PRESENTS
THAT ARE WAITING. THEY ARE STAGES AND AVENUES TO DO GREATER WORKS.
THEY ARE GOD’S PERKS.
BUILDING, PROTECTING, FUNDING AND LOVING, ARE ALL GIFTS THAT
ARE SEARCHING. THEY ARE LOOKING TO BE CONSUMED BY THOSE WHO
WILL WALK INTO THEIR CALLING. WHAT IS YOUR PLATFORM, ARE YOU STARVING?
