Happy New Year

rsz_color_profile_pic2017 is finally here, I’m out with the old and in with the new.  New Year’s Day is a day for reflection. I think about what I can do better in 2017 that I didn’t do in 2016. I think about what to let go of that is toxic in my life. Letting go of all bad relationships is something I have already done. If you can’t see yourself building a solid foundation that is unbreakable because the two of you is not on the same accord growing together as one spiritually by the grace of God, then let that person go. A Godly man knows his wife when he meets her. If your relationship is not growing, then let it go. Life is too short to be miserable.

My second resolution I want to focus on in 2017 that I’ve been praying to God about is being more persistent and staying focus on finishing all writing projects that I’ve been working on for the last two years. My book is almost finish and I still have fifty more pages left on my screenplay. The life of a writer is hard especially when you must work a full-time job and finding the time to write makes writing even harder. To all my struggling artist, entrepreneur’s, visionaries, and dreamer’s find time to work on your craft and make that dream of yours’s come to life, even if you must take baby steps to get it off the ground, starting it will eventually bring it to life.

My third resolution I want to focus on this year is building my brand, upgrading and expanding all my social networks, finally joining (WGAE) once I’ve launch both of my projects this year. I pray that God will grant me the right team of people who understands my vision, who can market and promote my work by getting it out there to the right audience, agents, producers, and networks. With a strong team behind me failure is not an option. I want to learn how to interact more with my followers on social media because I can be a bit reserved.

My fourth resolution is to continue being better today than I was yesterday. I want to use everything I’ve learned over the last forty years of my life to create something beautiful, something meaningful, something that pulls at your heart-strings. I want my creativity to have no boundaries. I want to write the stories that has never been written, I want all my stories to stand the test of time. Every day I want to work on perfecting my craft as a writer.

ABOUT THE BIBLE

The Bible contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and it’ decisions are immutable. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you.

It is the traveler’s map, the pilgrim’s staff, the pilot’s compass, the soldier’s sword, and the Christian’s charter. Here Paradise is restored, Heaven opened, and the gates of hell disclosed. CHRIST is its grand subject, our good the design, and the glory of God its end.

It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet. Read it slowly, frequently, and prayerfully. It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure. It is given you in life, will be open at the judgment, and be remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility, will reward the greatest labor, and will condemn all who trifle with its sacred contents.

_ The Gideon’s International Bible (New Testament)

God is First and Foremost In My Life

Lord,  you’re  everything in my life that I need; to succeed on this journey called life. I love you forever until eternity. Lord, when you finally open my eyes, I never realize I have so many enemies that surround me with their silent stares, and they’re grim smirks. They mumble under their tongues while hissing in my face. They will give you the evil eye; jealousy will be their expression every time I cross their path.

Lord, as long as I have you first in my life, I’ve found, my enemies will never harm me. God is not about hatred, God is not about holding grudges, God is not about you being selfish, God is not about your pride, God is not about sickness; but he is a jealous God, and he should always be first in your life. Whenever you have the anointing of God on your life, and he lives within your heart, it will show through you. It will show in your walk, your talk, and especially in your character.

I have to trust that God will protect me. I have to trust that God will guide me. I have to trust that God will heal me. I have to put all my trust in God because I’ve learned that people will let you down. You cannot just rely on your job or your career; look at the job lost. You can’t just rely on the government or your community; look how many people on welfare and homeless. You cannot just rely on friends and family; where were they when you needed them the most? Lord if I cannot put all my 100% trusts in you, than whom can I trust?

When you have the power of God on your side and in your life, there is no book, no career, and no institution; there is no how to guide to teach you or to put you on your correct path in life other than the word of God.

_For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.  A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. _Luke 6:43-45

God is and will forever be about love and his love resides in you.

Now We Are Free

The Warrior’s Prayer

Heavenly Father,
Your warrior prepares for battle.
Today I claim victory over Satan by putting on
The whole armor of God!

I put on the Girdle of Truth!
May I stand firm in the truth of Your Word
So I will not be a victim of Satan’s Lies.

I put on the Breastplate of Righteousness!
May it guard my heart from evil
So I will remain pure and holy,
Protected under the blood of Jesus Christ.

I put on the Shoes of Peace!
May I stand firm in the Good News of the Gospel
So Your peace will shine through me and be a light to all I encounter.

I take the Shield of Faith!
May I be ready for Satan’s fiery darts of
Doubt, denial, and deceit
So I will not be vulnerable to spiritual defeat.

I put on the Helmet of Salvation!
May I keep my mind focused on You
So Satan will not have a stronghold on my thoughts.

I take the Sword of the Spirit!
May the two-edged sword of Your Word
Be ready in my hands
So I can expose the tempting word of Satan.

By faith your warrior has put on
The whole armor of God!

I am prepared to live this day in spiritual victory!

Amen
