God Uses Billboards

IMG_9422-0.JPG

Think about the canvas of Gods imagination and how He sees you and I. With that, the most amazing thing happened yesterday. I asked God for a sign to see where this road leads me. I found myself going to the grave site where my youngest son remains are buried. As I walked towards the headstone everything appeared the same, except the dirt. There seem to be more red clay packed on top. I walked around several times and then realized something else was different. As there appeared to be a second baseball on the ledge of the headstone. You see there had been only one which was a prop from the service. Then I picked up the ball and noticed an inscription

“7-28-14
Thanks Jordan!
Jerry
FROG”.

I became uncontrollably emotional as you see I know I am healed from the sting of death of my youngest son. What I didn’t understand was what caused me to cry? My question was…Who visits the grave site of a 9 year olds remains and writes that on a baseball and it’s not a family member. I couldn’t figure it out. I picked up the baseball again and noticed it was marked official league. I compared that to the prop baseball and it was not the same. I kept rehashing it in my mind. I finally left the grave site and eventually went home.

Why must I continually suffer such painful anguish? Why must I endure the sting of their insults like an incurable wound? Will you let me down when I need you like a brook one goes to for water, but that cannot be relied on?” Jeremiah 15.18 NET

After discussing it, I was reminded of the impact Jordan had on so many lives. This was clearly a sign of the impact he had on this persons life. I realized, there are those I don’t even know where he touch their lives. You see that’s the sign of a billboard changing someone’s life. Here a year and some months later someone thought enough to leave a sign of thanks of what the billboard did for he in his life.

The next morning I rehearsed again the events of yesterday with my dear friend and as I explained it to her, she mentioned that’s how you know the billboard was and is effective. I know why she said that, as God had said Jordan is (in a previous season) His walking billboard. Then the amazement was revealed, she said it was your ex -coworker, “Jerry” that left the baseball. I again began to cry because I knew it was in fact he. You must understand my dearest friend never knew Jerry. Only God could have given her that revelation. I thought about the last time I saw Jerry, April 30th, 2014 and he said as he hugged me goodbye…”Jordan changed my life. I am a better me because of he”. I realized yet again this is the fruit we are to bear as believers. Many of us would never get to witness how our loved one changed another’s life. I thank God he allowed me to see the baseball inscribed by Jerry, of his thanks for his appreciation of Jordan, his walking billboard. I know the story is still unfolding but the most important fact is seeing a billboards effectiveness.

To experience this just days before what would have been his birthday, Nov. 25th. Through Jordan God showed Himself real to Jerry and that’s a billboard with a message for a lifetime. I have not seen a billboard with such a lasting impression. He still lives on in our hearts. I thank You, God for a purpose fulfilled in Jordan as You released purpose in me.

If a man had a hundred sheep and one of them wanders away, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others on the hills and go out to search for the one that is lost. 13)And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he will rejoice over it more than over the ninety-nine that didn’t wander away! 14) In the same way it is not my heavenly Father’s will that even one of these little ones should perish. Matthew 18:12-14 NLT

Who do you know today that is a walking billboard and how they changed even 1 persons life through ones very own witness? Be mindful He draws all men unto Him.

Biblical Highlight

But you will not even need to fight. Take your position; then stand still and watch the victory. He is with you, oh people of Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. Go out against them tomorrow, for The Lord is with you! 2 Chronicles 20:17 NLT

2 Chronicles 20:1-25

Be mindful the battle is not yours, but Gods. Give Him your best praise before you see Him move on your behalf and watch how He performs.

Do it for ME

IMG_9232.JPG

The first time I heard the words, “do it for ME”, were from my youngest sons mouth (Jordan A. Samples – deceased). At that time my oldest and I were at odds with each other. I had asked him, John (at the time – 15) to take out the trash. He did not budge. Then at the sound of Jordans voice he said to him, “Do it for ME“. John jumped up quickly and emptied the trash. I was in the hallway when I heard those infamous words and began to cry as I could not believe those four words came out of my youngest mouth and how my oldest moved so quickly. At the time I did not know those for words were scripture. I just knew a nine year old would not know how to put those words together. I knew God was using Jordan but as to why, it had not all unfolded. I was astonished.

Two years later;
Since that time of those spoken words I have grown up in so many ways… One obvious point of growth is what many see on the outside as my countenance change. The change began on the inside of me first For God healed me in my heart, mind and body. This includes what was the sting of death from my youngest son, no longer present hear in the earth.

Now along the way of life’s journey He exploded, “do it for ME” in my heart. To be clear the ME is God. I now know what caused my oldest son to move with haste as well as myself to obey the call on my life. You see whenever God assigns us to do something and we don’t want to perform it, that is the very thing He says to us, “do it for ME”.

16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. Matthew 20:16 KJV

For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion Romans 9:15 KJV.

I did not want to move as He purposed (early on) me you see it meant I would have to move and speak like I’ve never done before. It meant people especially those at church would look at me and gauk at me, who does she think she is. It meant I would stand out. Although I knew I was standing out for what God told me to do. Of course there were those that did not believe as though I was not wrapped to tight. It was all these reasons and more. As I did not want to move as God assigned and purposed. The funny thing about God when He chooses who He choses we can’t change it. You see that would mean He is a lie. But God is not a man that He should lie…Each time I’d go back to God and say, I don’t want this, He’d say nothing. After I was done pouting then I’d hear my instruction to press forward. The main premise, as He always drew me back to Him, was “do it for ME”. I’d say Lord how can I do this as they have come against me. The next thing I heard, “as unto me”, which brought me right back to “do it for ME”.

With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Ephesians 6:7 KJV

These words are pivotal as how do I not move the way God assigned me, when He sent his only son to die for you and me. That means “after all we owe Him our soul”. Food for thought, when we need to forgive someone and we are holding on to it for dear life…do it for ME. When that wayward husband/wife does the unthinkable and they want to come back home…do it for ME. Someone near and dear to you hurt you beyond words…do it for ME. Winning souls to Christ…do it for ME. That’s the ultimate question from God to us…do it for ME.

For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever; Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord? If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself. If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account; I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it: albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto… Philemon 1:15-19 KJV

Take a few moments and ask yourself if God asked you the question…would you do it for ME? No matter what it pertained to, would you do it? Before you respond let me warn you, God does not ask a question that he doesn’t already know the answer to.

Harvest After the Storm

IMG_9387.JPG

IMG_9388.JPG

Many would like to put the cart before the horse (like the title) and obtain their harvest before ever going through the storm. God wants us to know the harvest is always after the storm. We can’t obtain the harvest until we have gone through the storm. You see going through the storm shapes, molds and crafts us for greater, which yields the harvest. Whereas many times we aren’t ready for the harvest as we haven’t weathered the storm.

It’s like putting on a tailor made suit. In order to fit the suit your measurements must be precise. Going through the storm is a setup for a harvest made just for you. Although there are those that have gone through similar storms. Just know, no two harvest are alike as everyone experiences a different storm, which prepares you for a different harvest. There is no one size fits all storm or harvest.

The steps of a good man are ordered by The Lord: and he delighteth in his way. Psalm 37:23 KJV

Often times as we go through the storms of life, we tend to want to take shortcuts when there is really no easy way out. For obedience is what gets us through the storm and ultimately yields the harvest. Make sure you move as God orders your steps for the wrong turns and movements can cause delays and even halts to things along the way.

But consider the joy of those corrected by God! Do not despise the discipline of the almighty when you sin. Job 5:17

Be mindful as you move to and fro God will prompt you to help others as you are going through. At first it will not make sense to help someone as you go through for you are in distress yourself. One thing I discovered along the way as God molded and shaped me, in the midst of the storm…He always knew I had just enough left in me to help someone else. No matter how bad it appeared to be for me He always motioned me to help someone else.

He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others when they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. 2 Cor. 1:4 NLT

You see it increased compassion and reduced my self centered ways. Each time He prompted me to help someone, even while the sea had swelled around me and it appeared the boat had capsized. I wasn’t sure how I would get through. Yet again, another opportunity to help someone else and yes again my compassion meter went through the rough and my selfishness went downward. After so many promptings to comfort someone else. That eliminated selfishness and increased compassion in me. Before I knew what happened…The only Wise God, had drained the part of me that I didn’t think was possible to change. The part of me that was interested only in self.

Biblical Example

After all Job faced God had him to pray for his three friends. After praying God turned the tide, He restored him double what he had lost and greater. Job’s manifested harvest was based on the storms he endured. You see God allowed the storms of life to come upon Job as He is the Author and Finisher of our faith and He knew Job would make it through.

Job 42:7-11 NLT—After the Lord fhad finished speaking to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite: “I am angry with you and your two friends, for you have not spoken accurately about me, as my servant Job has. So take seven bulls and seven rams and go to my servant Job and offer a burnt offering for yourselves. My servant Job will pray for you, and I will accept his prayer on your behalf. I will not treat you as you deserve, for you have not spoken accurately about me, as my servant Job has.” So…

Masterpiece

IMG_9322.JPG

He broke the mold when He made you, your countenance precedes you as you walk in the room. For you are not broken, tattered or torn. It is your heart that everyone sees and can’t help but to keep noticing. They take a glance at you and can’t stop looking for they know not where you are from. If they only knew Him they’d know where you hail from. He designed you perfectly so walk in the skin He destined you to showcase for the world to see. Just know you are beautifully and wonderful made as only the master painter could craft you.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14 NIV

River Runs Through It

IMG_9338.JPG

One thing is for certain we will all experience our seasons in the valley. There will also be more than one occurrence of seasons in the valley. For it was never meant for us to run but to face it and endure. What I discovered along the way while I was in the midst of the valley, God always quenched me, which stemmed from various individuals. You can rest assured, He did it for me, surely He will do it for you. It is in the valley that we experience a river runs through it moment, which it is He that quenches us. He is so mindful of us and truly knows our woes and He hears our cry as He sends the right person(s) across our path. It is His awesome love that God quenches us along the way.

Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you. 1 Peter 5:7 nlt

It is during the crest or peaks in the valley that a “river runs through it” and where we are refreshed. Of course, it’s never when we think the quenching should take place. No…no…no the river runs through it at the most pivotal times. It’s typically where we think we are done and can’t go any further. After the quenching takes place we now have exactly what we need to forge ahead. You see during each of our river runs through it moments God;

a. fortifies
b. sustains
c. quenches
d. soothes

As we are in the midst of the valley He builds our confidence in Him. This propels our faith to the next level. Which also prepares us to reach the next rest stop. Be mindful there are those along the way of the river runs through it, that miss their quenching as they were distracted by sin, attacks or aggravation (or all of the above) that they didn’t hear nor see the next rest stop sign ahead.

Biblical Example:
Each time Elijah moved at the Lord’s direction He quenched Him physically, spiritually and kept his mind.

He refreshed Elijah with:
~brook Cherith
~widow woman
~abundance of rain

Just remember as you go through the storms of life a river runs through it as only God knows how and when to quench you and I.

This song has been an encouragement to me; Breathe On Us by Kari Jobe

Scripture Reference

Drink from the brook and eat what the ravens bring you, for I have commanded them to bring you food.” 1 Kings 17:4 NLT

So he went to Zarephath. As he arrived at the gates of the village, he saw a widow gathering sticks, and he asked her, ” Would you please bring me a little water in a cup?”

And soon the sky was black with clouds. A heavy wind brought a terrific rainstorm, and Ahab left quickly for Jezreel. 1 Kings 18:45 NLT

His Amazing Love

IMG_9185-0.JPG

It was early one Thursday morning and I heard, “Go Outside”. I did not know why but was obedient none the less. After going outside there were several things that released as I went. There was a post that I could not get right, however it all came together as I sat outside on the swing. The words to post were clear and concise with no more haze. You see God was showing me something…

Then he touched their eyes and said “According to your faith let it be done to you”. Matthew 9:29 kjv

Then an amazing chase ensued right before my eyes as the cat goes after a momma squirrel. I know you are thinking why is this chase so amazing. It revealed three amazing things that would only take place at Gods prompting.

1. I wrote free and clear with no haze

2. God takes care of the small living creatures how much greater will he do do for man

3. He showed me the cat represented satan, the momma cat represented God and the baby squirrel represented you or I. He always shields us and never leaves us nor forsakes us.

As the chase escalated I noticed the squirrel had something in her mouth but could not make it out. Then all of a sudden the squirrel went up the tree. The cat could not go up the tree, as far as the momma squirrel. The cat came back down and instantly began lurking in the green ivy. I thought it was odd how the cat roamed through the green ivy. I walked over to see what the cat was looking for. The cat had something tiny in his mouth. I then heard this small squeaky sound, not like I’ve heard before. I quickly noticed the tiny something I saw, was a baby squirrel. The cat kept trying to pick up the squirrel with his teeth and couldn’t seem to hold on to it. I began jumping up and down and gesturing in the hopes the cat would drop the baby squirrel. I am also saying “no” out loud to the cat in the hopes that he would drop it. It was to no avail. I tried one last thing and threw the racquet club at the cat and missed and he still did not drop the squirrel. The cat just went off into the words with the squirrel in his mouth. Here I am trying to protect the squirrel and it was all for not, or so I thought.

The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life. John 10:10 NLT

Then the man of the home in which my son and I are guest, he came out to see what was wrong. As I explain what took place he heads back inside to put his shoes on. To my amazement he returned outside to look for the cat. You see I didn’t know the heart of this man but God surely did. HE knew this man has an affection for animals. He asked me where the cat went and I pointed (into the woods) and he proceeded to look for the cat and hopefully the baby squirrel. God is so masterful that He sent the man outside as ram in the bush.

Then Abraham looked up and saw a ram caught by its horns in a thicket. So he took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering in place of his son. Genesis 22:13 NLT

To my surprise he came back with the baby squirrel in a plastic bag so he would not get scratched. He then puts the baby squirrel in a cage to protect him from the cat. I began to walk around the cage because I realized God just saved the squirrel and how much greater would He do for you or I. You see for the squirrel, He came through in the nick of time and He’ll do the same for us.

This lesson that brought scripture to life; Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap nor gather into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Matthew 6:26

For me this was a right now answer and example as I was headed for Atlanta, GA, The Woman Thou Art Loosed conference, the very next day. I knew that was my next assignment but I did not know how I would get there. This showed me how can God not make a way when it’s His plan in motion. In clear terms he took care of the baby squirrel and would do the same for me and greater on an assignment He orchestrated.

There was also the man that we are staying with, God also had a lesson for he and his family as well. You see he too needed God to move and shift something’s. This modern day parable yielded so much more of His wisdom. Just know a release in the earth is not only financial in Gods eyes. A release can be different things like His word confirmed in the earth. This real life example was an example of release taken place in natures form. Let’s face it folks God used a donkey to get His point across. Surely He can use a baby squirrel.

The scripture unfolding in real life. All He desires is our obedience. For it is in our obedience to God that release takes place. How many of us hear Him in some way; in His words, scripture, or someone comes up to you and delivers a word that agrees in your spirit. It is when we don ‘t listen to the warnings or obvious signs that we miss out on the very thing that God is showing us. Be mindful He is showing us things but it takes one with the ears to hear and eyes to see to obtain the message.

One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision and told him, “Don’t be afraid! Speak out! Don’t be silent! Acts 18:9 NLT</

Marriage: the Way God Intended

I heard my Grandma Ginny say, so long ago, when one (believers) gets a divorce in God’s eyes we are committing adultery when we remarry over and over again. She has since gone home to be with the Lord. When she said this so many years ago I presumed she was not clear on the passage of scriptures. After all how many of us have come up with our own interpretation of scriptures.  Fast forwarding to this season God drops this exact topic in my spirit and yields such clarity. I wanted to shy away as my own marriage was barely holding on by a very thin thread, virtually non-existent. Of course, as God would have it and what came to me, “why not you”.

“If a man divorces a woman and she goes and marries someone else, he will not take her back again, for that would surely corrupt the land. But you have prostituted yourself with many lovers, so why are you trying to come back to me?” says the Lord. Jeremiah 3:1

I could bore you and tell you the statistics of the divorce rate in the church today is at an all time high of roughly 75%. I could also explain another victims perspective about how she was wronged the marriage. No, that’s not what God dropped in my spirit. I know it was from Him as it was an eye opening look on His marriage. So precise and yet raw at the same time. Here is God’s take for His marriage. The marriage in God’s eyes is intended to be modeled just as Jesus and the church. Our example in the body of Christ is Jesus (groom) and the church (bride). To date Jesus has never divorced the church. No matter what offenses have been committed He has never threatened divorce. If it were so He would have turned His head away from us long ago. Because of His unconditional love for us He has never looked away. We have blended in with the worlds way of doing things when we should set the tone. You see the greater is on the inside of each and everyone of us. Many will say…as an excuse I am not Jesus as He was and is perfect. Yet another excuse which is the most commonly used, I am not suppose to be unhappy. There are a host of other reasons and only God knows the hearts of man.

If God’s intention for marriage was to not last, why is everything when in comes to God; ever lasting, eternal life, completion, or finished work. Truth is, nothing about God makes one think… stops in the middle, half, partiality, little bit! We serve a God that is whole and complete in the fullness thereof.

If you are asking, I am on my 2nd marriage or greater what do I do from this point forward? Very simply, commit your sins to the Lord and He rights your wrongs with forgiveness and in His grace. Once we are aware of our offenses and what God intended then we are accountable. It’s when we don’t commit it to the Lord and we walk around in ignorance and not deal with the very thing that keeps us bound. We are free in Jesus when we know His way for our lives. Also, once you are married God honors that. It’s when we divorce and remarry and divorce and remarry, that we have just invited curses into our lives and for generations to come.

Now, dear brothers and sisters[a]—you who are familiar with the law—don’t you know that the law applies only while a person is living? 2 For example, when a woman marries, the law binds her to her husband as long as he is alive. But if he dies, the laws of marriage no longer apply to her. 3 So while her husband is alive, she would be committing adultery if she married another man. But if her husband dies, she is free from that law and does not commit adultery when she remarries. Romans 7:1-3

For those that are divorced and not remarried. This is your opportunity to get it right wit Him. Give it to Him and leave it there. you see God never intended for you and I to walk around with blinders on. He gave us His word as a road map on how we are to move in the earth.

Saving the best for last…For those who are die hards on the word of God and “know” His word, you will love this part. It is a fact, Moses gave a legal out for Christians to get a divorce. The small piece that most of us miss Moses gave a way out of marriage in his own understanding. Ultimately, it was because of the children of Israel’s hardened hearts. It was not authorized by God it was only due to the pressure Moses received from the people. You see what was found to be true back then 2000+ years ago, yet still true today, when man’s heart is hardened there is only one being that changes that fact as God chastens man. No matter how much man tries there is only one heart changer, that’s God. Where we miss the mark as believers, we fail to wait on God’s perfect will for our lives. You see microwaves did not exist back then, but man still had no desire to wait on God. Yet God waits on us no matter how long it takes to turn it around and never complains, never divorces us, nor never turns away from us.

2 Some Pharisees came and tried to trap him with this question: “Should a man be allowed to divorce his wife?”

3 Jesus answered them with a question: “What did Moses say in the law about divorce?”

4 “Well, he permitted it,” they replied. “He said a man can give his wife a written notice of divorce and send her away.”[a]

5 But Jesus responded, “He wrote this commandment only as a concession to your hard hearts. 6 But ‘God made them male and female’[b] from the beginning of creation. 7 ‘This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife,[c] 8 and the two are united into one.’[d] Since they are no longer two but one, 9 let no one split apart what God has joined together.”

10 Later, when he was alone with his disciples in the house, they brought up the subject again. 11 He told them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries someone else commits adultery against her. 12 And if a woman divorces her husband and marries someone else, she commits adultery.” Mark 10:2-12 nlt.

If you are saying how do I know these things, that’s easy God waited on me to turn it around. Now, I wait on Him and trust in Him until He fixes it…whatever it is, it will be better than ever before…His promise to me and anyone that will come around to His way. It’s your choice.

JES_FROG_CROSS_3

Calvary – Golgotha

The location  where Jesus hung on the cross is nothing new. Calvary Golgotha’s mount, is the place where Jesus hung on the cross along with two criminals. This is not new as we learned this growing up, we taught our kids and grand-kids for those that have them. Where God gives added insight, this was the only time where an attempt of sacrificial offering took place. The time was Abraham with his son Isaac. It was an attempt that God never intended for him to carry out. Although, he had every intention to sacrifice his son, God knew Abraham’s heart. He had a bigger plan that would not take place for years to come and served a greater purpose.

When Abraham took his son to the spot, two significant things took place; obedience and his actions set the tone. To set the tone means to prepare the way for what’s to come. After his obedience Golgotha’s mount became known for something else. That spot then became know as sacrificial offering. Also, after the tone was set no one else was sacrificed on that mount, until Jesus Christ and the two criminals. Even though this took place so many years ago it became the precedence again for what was to come. The precedence was and is, God always sets the tone before something great takes place.

Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God
 as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave[c]and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. Philippians 2:6-8 nlt

Ultimate Gift

Just as the Bible is the same yesterday, today, and forever more, that too holds true for the blood. The significance of the shed blood of Jesus, over two thousand plus years ago are the benefits we received:JES_FROG_BLOOD

  • power – ability to conquer things on earth
  • healing – pray, speak, and receive healing for your body
  • deliverance – the very thing that has you bound and then broken

To fully understand the weighted benefits of Jesus shed blood we must expound on the ultimate selfless act , performed by Jesus. There was yet another three things that were beaming from this reference point

  • He did not have to do it
  • He could have come down from the cross
  • He knew His purpose

He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin
 and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed. 1 Peter 2:24 nlt

He desired to experience the very things that man had gone through to allow us the opportunity to benefit from the ultimate gift. We could say, Jesus was treated like a criminal and greater so that we would live freely. No man would have paid such a price, but Jesus did.

This is relevant today because the Lord set the tone way back then and He still does the same today. Just know that when you move in His will and purpose for your life He has already prepared the way.

These two songs have encouraged me, hope the same is for you: His Blood Still Works & O’ The Blood.
