Farther Along………..Who will you rely on?

  Good day to you all once again. Yes, I have learned with God showing me that it is best to write these blogs when I have them on my mind and not try to lay it out at the last minute. Today is a very hard day for me on top of all other that is taking place as it was a year ago today that my grandmother received her walking paper’s to return to her heavenly home. I remember this day as clear as if it was yesterday, just as I do with my grandfather’s death. I like everyone else on earth, have a hard time trying to understand many things that take place around us like death. The thing is though that only God knows the true understanding. As you continue to read this blog and asking the question of why these things happen, just remember that there is a time for all things. The question I want you to think of though is who will you rely on….your own understanding or God’s?

  We all go through issues throughout our life time….some good and some are bad, but we truly tend to act more on the bad issues than the good ones. When something bad takes place many of us get angry at God and asking the question of why….why did this happen to me or why did this happen to my family. The answer….God didn’t do it……Satan allowed it to happen. The thing is though, God tells us that there is always changes which will constantly be taking place within our lives. The third chapter of Ecclesiastes tells us this:


                       1- There is a time for everything,
                             and a season for every activity under the heavens:

                                   2 - a time to be born and a time to

                              a time to plant and a time to uproot,
                     3-   a time to kill and a time to heal,
                            a time to tear down and a time to build,


                                 4- a time to weep and a time to laugh

                       a time to mourn and a time to dance,
                     5-  a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
                         a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
                    6- a time to search and a time to give up,
                         a time to keep and a time to throw away,
                    7-  a time to tear and a time to mend,
                           a time to be silent and a time to speak,
                             8 - a time to love and a time to hate,
                           a time for war and a time for peace.


Therefore we see that there is a time and season for each and every thing that takes place within our lives. It’s not because God is punishing us or our families but yet He is testing us to see how strong our belief and faith are in Him. For we are to trust in God and NOT lean on our own understanding when situations take place. We may not truly understand the reason or why at the time but as the song goes….farther along we will understand it. It is not always easy and we might not understand it immediately but God will show it later on. So when something bad does go on in your life, fight the enemy by instead of getting mad at God, reverse it and show Satan you are going to rely on God not yourself. So in closing, I ask this of you, the next time something goes wrong in your life, who are you going to rely on? God or yourself? Myself, I would much rather rely on God as I know that if I was to rely on myself I would never make it through the bad times. Finally I want to say "Happy Heavenly Birthday Grandma….I love and miss you.”

Remember, if you are interested in having me speak to your church, school, group, or organization or you are interested in a copy of the book, you can obtain all the information on the front of this website.

God Bless and Keep you all-

In Christ –


Psalms 121 and 23 <><
