OFFICER MEETING TONIGHT IN LANCASTER.
WANT TO GO FISHING???
“Give a man a fish, and you will feed him for a day. Teach a man how to fish, and you will feed him for a lifetime.”
Almighty God, you sent your Son to proclaim your kingdom and to teach with authority. Anoint us with the power of your Spirit, that we, too, may bring good news to the afflicted, bind up the brokenhearted, and proclaim liberty to the captive; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
TODAY was Interesting…
I began with a short read…
I then went to the Gym, Church, & the Library… LATER, I GAVE MY SPEECH IN LANCASTER WITH MY DEVIL PUPPET.
i am going to load my speech i gave last night on my LinkedIn account…
I need to share this with you before I load it…
1 For God alone my soul waits in silence;
from him comes my salvation.
2 He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall never be shaken.
3 How long will you assail a person,
will you batter your victim, all of you,
as you would a leaning wall, a tottering fence?
4 Their only plan is to bring down a person of prominence.
They take pleasure in falsehood;
they bless with their mouths,
but inwardly they curse.Selah
5 For God alone my soul waits in silence,
for my hope is from him.
6 He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
7 On God rests my deliverance and my honor;
my mighty rock, my refuge is in God.
8 Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us.Selah
9 Those of low estate are but a breath,
those of high estate are a delusion;
in the balances they go up;
they are together lighter than a breath.
10 Put no confidence in extortion,
and set no vain hopes on robbery;
if riches increase, do not set your heart on them.
11 Once God has spoken;
twice have I heard this:
that power belongs to God,
12 and steadfast love belongs to you, O Lord.
For you repay to all
according to their work.
Well… THINGS MIGHT NOT BE GOING HOW I PLANNED THEM… However, my FAITH is AWESOME… no-one or no-thing… i mean no-one or no-thing can keep me from running to our God!!!
I recorded me reading PSALM 62…
WILL YOU LISTEN???
LET’s GO!!! *push*
God of glory, Father of love, peace comes from you alone. Send us peacemakers and witnesses to your kingdom, and fill our hearts with joy in your promises of salvation; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
I want to start this entry by encouraging you to keep reading, learning, and applying God’s Word into your daily everyday life… DON’T PAY ATTENTION TO NAYSAYERS…
6 Then He went out from there and came to His own country, and His disciples followed Him. 2 And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the synagogue. And many hearing Him were astonished, saying, “Where did this Man get these things? And what wisdom is this which is given to Him, that such mighty works are performed by His hands! 3 Is this not the carpenter, the Son of Mary, and brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And are not His sisters here with us?” So they were offended at Him.
4 But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.” 5 Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them. 6 And He marveled because of their unbelief. Then He went about the villages in a circuit, teaching.
5 These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, saying: “Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans.6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead,[a] cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give. 9 Provide neither gold nor silver nor copper in your money belts, 10 nor bag for your journey, nor two tunics, nor sandals, nor staffs; for a worker is worthy of his food.
11 “Now whatever city or town you enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and stay there till you go out. 12 And when you go into a household, greet it.
BUSY, BUSY, BUSY DAY…

“Did you see me sprinting on that treadmill this morning???” – I DID A FACE PLANT INTO THE STAIRMASTER AND FRIGHTENED SOME PEOPLE… it was AWESOME!!!
Almighty God, you show the light of your truth to those in darkness, to lead them into the way of righteousness. Give strength to all who are joined in the family of the Church, so that they will resolutely reject what erodes their faith and firmly follow what faith requires; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
(Please read till the end… I added a lot of scriptures and personal testimonies for this Sunday remembering the Resurrection of our Lord… THANK YOU!!!)
10 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. 2 But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.3 To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. 5 Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.” 6 Jesus used this illustration, but they did not understand the things which He spoke to them.
7 Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All who ever came before Me[a] are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. 12 But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. 13 The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. 15 As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. 16 And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.
17 “Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. 18 No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.”
YESTERDAY, MARKED 17 YEARS SINCE I RELEARNED HOW TO WALK AND TALK FROM INJURIES THAT I SUSTAINED FROM A CAR ACCIDENT… TODAY… I WILL PRAY…
YOU KNOW… I HAVE DECIDED TO YELL MATTHEW CHAPTER 7 THIS MORNING. Will you read???
(PUSH for AUDIO)
I really am excited! Tomorrow at the 8 AM Service a young man is reading… I AM GOING and GOING TO ENCOURAGE HIM. I would also like to encourage you on your walk with our Lord Jesus Christ by sharing a story of our brother Paul. REMEMBER, PAUL ONCE PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS (followers of Jesus) BEFORE HE BECAME A BELIEVER (apostle)… IT READS…
11 But the following night the Lord stood by him and said, “Be of good cheer, Paul; for as you have testified for Me in Jerusalem, so you must also bear witness at Rome.”
12 And when it was day, some of the Jews banded together and bound themselves under an oath, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul. 13 Now there were more than forty who had formed this conspiracy. 14 They came to the chief priests and elders, and said, “We have bound ourselves under a great oath that we will eat nothing until we have killed Paul. 15 Now you, therefore, together with the council, suggest to the commander that he be brought down to you tomorrow,[a] as though you were going to make further inquiries concerning him; but we are ready to kill him before he comes near.”
BE BLESSED… *push*
Almighty God, we have celebrated with joy the festival of our Lord’s resurrection. Graciously help us to show the power of the resurrection in all that we say and do; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
(Please read till the end… I added a lot of scriptures and personal testimonies for this Second Sunday remembering the Resurrection of our Lord… THANK YOU!!!)
AWESOME!!! I really want to start this entry off by sharing with you the Holy Gospel of John written in the New Testament of our Holy Bible… IT READS… (let’s do this!!!)
19 Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled,[a] for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 20 When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.
21 So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”
24 Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.”
So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”
26 And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, “Peace to you!” 27 Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.”
28 And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”
29 Jesus said to him, “Thomas,[b] because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
30 And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.
AWESOMENESS!!! I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU A SCRIPTURE THAT I AM READING BEFORE READING HOSEA CHAPTER 13…
(PUSH for AUDIO)
LET’s READ HOSEA CHAPTER 13 AND GO2 WORK…
I AM TRYING TO GET CLEARER SOUNDING IN MY SPEECH for work… You see, I want to help out union members by informing them of their benefits… I READ THE NEW TESTAMENT THIS MORNING… AND AM NOT HAPPY HOW I PRONOUNCE THE WORD “THEM”.
(PUSH for AUDIO)
I am reading at my church at 8:00 AM… I would love to share these words in person… HOWEVER, I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU NOW…
Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know— 23 Him, being delivered by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God, you have taken[c]by lawless hands, have crucified, and put to death; 24 whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it. 25 For David says concerning Him:
‘I foresaw the Lord always before my face,
For He is at my right hand, that I may not be shaken.
26 Therefore my heart rejoiced, and my tongue was glad;
Moreover my flesh also will rest in hope.
27 For You will not leave my soul in Hades,
Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.
28 You have made known to me the ways of life;
You will make me full of joy in Your presence.’[d]
29 “Men and brethren, let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. 30 Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his body, according to the flesh, He would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne,[e] 31 he, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that His soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption. 32 This Jesus God has raised up, of which we are all witnesses.
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, 5 who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
6 In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, 8 whom having not seen[a] you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, 9 receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.
WISE MEN SEEK THE LORD… *push*
Lord God, you showed your glory and led many to faith by the works of your Son. As he brought gladness and healing to his people, grant us these same gifts and lead us also to perfect faith in him, Jesus Christ our Lord.
I had an AWESOME time at church today… So AWESOME, that I am moved to switch up my tradition of writing on The Week of The Second Sunday After The Epiphany on Tuesday; to sharing with you the Holy Gospel Today (Sunday)… I also received a house blessing; however, I am going to put it in my car since I am on the move a lot… I think God understands. 🙂
20 + C + M + B + 17: Bless your home (in my case… my car)! Our homes are places of rest, places of hospitality, places of refreshment and love. At the beginning of each year Holy Trinity Lutheran Church of Hershey encourages everyone to pray for God’s blessing on their homes. I want to share this information and blessing to my friends and family.
The glorious Feast of the Epiphany celebrates the coming of the wise men to the home of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. The blessing of homes around the time of this feast, at the beginning of the new year, expresses the blessing of Christ born for us, and loving us wherever we are, and especially blessing our homes.
ONTO THE HOLY GOSPEL…
The scriptures I would like to share with you are written in the New Testament of our Holy Bible
29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! 30 This is He of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who is preferred before me, for He was before me.’ 31 I did not know Him; but that He should be revealed to Israel, therefore I came baptizing with water.”
32 And John bore witness, saying, “I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him. 33 I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’ 34 And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God.”
The First Disciples
35 Again, the next day, John stood with two of his disciples. 36 And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, “Behold the Lamb of God!”
37 The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. 38 Then Jesus turned, and seeing them following, said to them, “What do you seek?”
They said to Him, “Rabbi” (which is to say, when translated, Teacher), “where are You staying?”
39 He said to them, “Come and see.” They came and saw where He was staying, and remained with Him that day (now it was about the tenth hour).
40 One of the two who heard John speak, and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. 41 He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which is translated, the Christ).
How excited Andrew must have been. He found what he was seeking!
Today was cool… Even-though it was below freezing, I still ran outside. It was AWESOME! Like every morning, I was reading from the Holy Bible… I want to share these scriptures with you… MAY I???
THEY ARE AWESOME!!!
Today was cool… My church decided to help out a family in need in the community… We cleaned furniture that was taken out of the family’s home. The home is to get new paint and new carpeting from our church. This morning, I was seeking rags to use to help clean that furniture with… I WANTED TO USE SOME OLD BOXER SHORTS OF MINE THAT HAD A HOLE IN THEM… My Mom wouldn’t let me use my underwear…
MOM: No-one wants to see your underwear…
ME: YES… BUT, IT’S MY HOLY UNDERWEAR…
Needless to say, I didn’t bring ’em…
I enjoy my time in silence… THIS PREPARES ME FOR A DAY FULL OF NOISE…
May I share with you what I was silently reading this morning?
THAT PARABLE IN MATTHEW IS AWESOME…
Be a good example to those that do not believe in the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ…
HOPEFULLY, they will understand Jesus’s love for us… TILL THEN… I AM GOING TO READ THAT PSALM. 🙂
O God, we thank you for your Son who chose the path of suffering for the sake of the world. Humble us by his example, point us to the path of obedience, and give us strength to follow his commands; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
The end of the year recap is going to be crazy. If you are keeping up with the news (whether it be local or international) you see all the hurt, anguish, trials, and tribulations that individuals of humanity are experiencing… (Roanoke, VA)
When these trials come into your life… my advice is to STAND… STAND IN FAITH… Trust that the Lord will supply you with everything you need to live an awesome Christian Life…
I want to share with you two scriptures that I came across today…
*IF YOU ARE VIEWING THIS PICTURE VIA MOBILE PHONE… CLICK “REPLAY” UNTIL IT GOES AWAY…
The first scripture is from the book of Jeremiah found in our Holy Bible. IT READS…
15 O Lord, you know;
remember me and visit me,
and bring down retribution for me on my persecutors.
In your forbearance do not take me away;
know that on your account I suffer insult.
16 Your words were found, and I ate them,
and your words became to me a joy
and the delight of my heart;
for I am called by your name,
O Lord, God of hosts.
17 I did not sit in the company of merrymakers,
nor did I rejoice;
under the weight of your hand I sat alone,
for you had filled me with indignation.
18 Why is my pain unceasing,
my wound incurable,
refusing to be healed?
Truly, you are to me like a deceitful brook,
like waters that fail.
19 Therefore thus says the Lord:
If you turn back, I will take you back,
and you shall stand before me.
If you utter what is precious, and not what is worthless,
you shall serve as my mouth.
It is they who will turn to you,
not you who will turn to them.
20 And I will make you to this people
a fortified wall of bronze;
they will fight against you,
but they shall not prevail over you,
for I am with you
to save you and deliver you,
says the Lord.
21 I will deliver you out of the hand of the wicked,
and redeem you from the grasp of the ruthless.
AWESOME huh? This scripture mirrored with the other scripture found in 1 John 1:1-3 referenced below the Omega tattoo, makes me want to STAND IN FAITH… Jeremiah prophesied that the Lord is with you and will save, deliver, and redeem you. In the 19th verse of Jeremiah the Lord says… If you utter what is precious you shall serve as my mouth. What is more precious than the gift of eternal life uttering scripture from the Holy Bible???
1 John 1:1-3 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
The Word of Life
1 We declare to you what was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the word of life— 2 this life was revealed, and we have seen it and testify to it, and declare to you the eternal life that was with the Father and was revealed to us— 3 we declare to you what we have seen and heard so that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ.
I, personally, had a problem understanding some of these scriptures and felt p+ssed off for my lack. I PRAYED, AND PRAYED, AND PRAYED… In a twinkle of an eye 🙂 it came to me… FAITH… STAND IN IT.

“The only way to learn strong faith is to endure great struggles” – Anonymous
LET’S READ (psalm 26)
8/24/2016… Found a really cool book at the library today…
THANK YOU GOD FOR TODAY!
I want to share with you a conversation I had with my Pastor Thursday (8/25/2016) at church…
Me: I will take the blame for the air conditioning at church not working.
Me: IT’S THAT AIR CONDITIONING MONKEY… I MUST HAVE BROUGHT IT WITH ME… WE HAVE BEEN WITHOUT AIR CONDITIONING SINCE TUESDAY AT MY MOM’s.
LESSON: You might be uncomfortable praising God; however, it is wise to JUST DO IT!
THANK YOU GOD FOR YESTERDAY!
I am really amazed… what are the chances??? On Friday 8/26/2016, I put in a request for a music artist to be played on the radio by the RIVER 97.3… Wouldn’t you know it, on my way to work they played a song by them (PEARL JAM) and said my name. This made me have tears of joy because on my request (facebook) I thanked God for yesterday… I thanked God for today… & I thanked God for tomorrow.
THANK YOU GOD FOR TOMORROW!
LET’s GO2 CHURCH.
