I wish I could be more like you

Author/Teacher for billboardministry1

I read about you and the love you gave

How you surrendered yourself to this world

To save it from its self

I see how much your love and how much love is required to save a world

John 3:16 NIV

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

I see today how you are working in people’s lives

There is truly evidence that you are still working and moving in today’s world.

Your love is still working itself through many lives.

It’s evident in my life how you are working things out for my good.

You are leading me to a place and an image that you had in mind for me.

I know what and whatever you are preparing me for.

I have been chosen to do this task.

Jeremiah…

I was there

Author/Teacher for billboardministry1

Jeremiah 1:5 NIV

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
    before you were born I set you apart;
    I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

Just like I was there for you when you first were born

I was there

When you first started crying

I was there

When you took your first steps

I was there

When you first fell down and hurt your knee

I was there

When you said you were hungry

I was there

When the night mares got too strong

I was there

When your enemies taunted you and tried to make you do things you didn’t want to do

I was there

When you made a decision to take your first smoke

I was there

When you took your first drink

I was there

When you spent your last dime and did not know where you would…

I Am JOB

Author/Teacher for billboardministry1

Job 1:1 KJV

There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name [was] Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.

Lord God, I see the love you have for me.

You have shown me your hands

But my sins have put me into an unfamiliar place

I have lost all

I thought I was good

But I have lost all

Why has this happen to me?

The evil I see coming

I have played into his hand

Job 3:25 NLT

What I always feared has happened to me. What I dreaded has come true.

The key word in this scripture is he feared.

He has given him power over all that I have, even me

But death is not near

I have lost all and at moments thought of death.

Job 2:9-10 NASB

Then his wife said to him…

How to process defeat

Author/Teacher for billboardministry1

James 1:2-8 NKJV

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways

Learning how to win by learning how to process defeat?

We go through life with success and failure.

With wins and defeats

With ups and downs

As humans…

How is the Battle?

Author/Teacher for billboardministry1

Galatians 5:17 NLT

The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions.

Time has been our biggest enemy when we are in a battle?

Of course, this battle I speak of is the war against the flesh.

Today as its every day it’s tough, but mostly on the weekends.

In this society we live in we do things because it is the social norm.

We date

We go out

We meet at social gatherings

We talk a hip talk or today’s lingo

We act like they want us to act

We dress like them

And yet all that’s cool if we do not sin.

It’s hard to remain…

Here I Am

Author/Teacher for billboardministry1

Jeremiah 33:2-3 ESV

“Thus says the LORD who made the earth, the LORD who formed it to establish it, the LORD is His name,

Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.

Here I am

What things are you thinking about today?

Are you thinking about troubles and concerns of your life?

Are you thinking about the troubles and concerns of others?

What is troubling you?

It’s not your concern to think about these things.

It’s mine

1 Peter 5:7 NLT

Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about what happens to you.   

Here I am

Why are you looking all around like you are searching for something or someone to help you?

Where are your thoughts?

Are your thoughts upon me?

Or

Are your thoughts upon things that trouble you?

John 14:27…
