It feels good when you can be free. If you are in bondage pray and ask God to heal you, deliver you, break every chain, free you from bondage and set you free from the things in life that hold us down like: fear, doubt, jealousy, envy, hatred, insecurity, self pity, unforgiveness, lust of the flesh, greed, stinking thinking, fornication, adultery, procrastination, laziness, idolatry, pride, gossiping, being bragful or boastful, looking down on others, and anything else you may struggle with. Declare that these things come out of your life right now in the name of Jesus and allow the Holy Spirit to do a work in you. You cannot do this on your own, but the Holy spirit has to do it. Get in the Word and as the Holy Spirit reveal things to you he can do a work in you if you allow him to. So start on your road to Freedom. Real Talk!!!
Great morning all, Today’s Scriptures are:
18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
As I read the scripture it captured my attention that Joseph was a “just man”, so the question came to me how many of us are just? Joseph had the opportunity to put Mary on blast for something he felt like she did wrong to him but he did not. Let’s not be so quick to put people, what we think is an offense to us, on blast to others. Find out what is really going on first. The situation may not be what it appears to be. 💞Be blessed!!!

Happy Friday all,
as I read this morning about holding anger against your brother (anyone) in your heart the question is, is it worth it? No, it’s not. Life is short so don’t let anger and unforgiveness remain in your heart for another. That’s what satan wants because he knows that if you don’t forgive then God can’t forgive you. Satan will make you feel that you have justification to not forgive and stay angry with your brother. No one is promised tomorrow and it is a weight on you. So forgive and see how free you will feel. You don’t have to trust a person to be in your life again to forgive them. You always hear that forgiveness is for you not for them and it’s true. So don’t be weighed down another day, free yourself. Love you guys and have a blessed and great weekend. Real Talk💞
Murder Begins in the Heart
21 “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder,[a] and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’ 22 But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause[b] shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire. 23 Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.
As I sit here at the county jail I watch this young man look out the door of a interview room as he patiently awaits for an officer to come by and take him back to his cell. My thoughts were either this guy is patient, has developed patience or is he silently frustrated and refuses to show it in fear of the repercussions. I can’t help but to wonder as I watch him dance to someone else music waiting for every beat telling him which direction to go in. It’s sad to watch someone look out a glass window staring at the freedom they once use to possess. At least physical freedom.
One can be locked up physically but mentally free and physically free but mentally locked up.
I could only imagine pacing around in a small box like cell imagining what is, what could be, what was, and what’s to come. Echoes of the gates slamming, cell doors locking, people yelling, and predators watching. If you are wise you will do your time, learn from your bad decision and leave, to never return to this place called prison.
When you are in jail/prison you are stripped from head to toe. All your belongings are taken away, one-by-one, as you watch what was once yours be taken away and you wonder will you ever get it back. Jail is short term and prison is long term.
A person in jail/prison does not have to look like someone who sits is in a 4×4, cold, poorly lit cell. It can a 5’7″, long hair, beautiful to the eye, flawless women who can’t seem to let shake a no good man who is dogging her out. It can be a 6’1, tall, dark and handsome guy who convinces himself that the women he loves will come home one day and love him the way he feels like he deserves. It can be a person who feels like they know it all and they can’t learn anything new, refusing to think outside of the box. Jail/prison is the bondage you allow yourself to be in whether it’s physically or mentally. A person mentally locked up can be worst than a person who is physically locked up. If you’re lucky and you recognize you are in some form of bondage it may only feel like being in jail for a short period of time if you choose to make changes and move on. If you being in bondage last a long period of time like being in prison it may feel harder to get out of and may even start to feel normal.
Don’t allow yourself not to be free! Free yourself from bondage of people, lust of the flesh, material things, opinion of others, lack of knowledge, ignorance, loving someone else more than yourself, unforgiveness, self pity, greed, impure thoughts, stinking thinking, fornication, adultery, procrastination, idolatry, fear, doubt, jealousy, enviousness, insecurity, rejection and anything else that will hold you back. Don’t find yourself being stripped from head to toe by allowing any of these things to take control of your life. Don’t be a prisoner within yourself due to fear within yourself or of someone else. If it, whatever it (person, place or thing) is, feels like a weight then you may be in bondage to IT.
If you allow anything to hold you back from being free then you are no better off, in some cases, than an inmate who looks out the glass window wishing to get out from behind bars and be free from jail where life awaits him. Let it go, free yourself, let go and let God!!! Real Talk!!!
