The Tug

The Tug The world is enticing with all its glitz & glam. Little do most realize its the same as quick sand!
One give and one take can lead to a costly mistake. A mistake my dear that will cause much fear. Hearts will fail men for the future is unclear.
Clear as mud, as its so easily misjudged and soon the lines that were once drawn become distant and smudged.
There is a fierce tone yet full of Love deeply shown; as He gave all for His Love to be known.
To a people confused, lost and bewildered as He took every shame on the height of His shoulders.
Not as dazzling as the worlds entice, but that full of peace in forgiveness and direction defined; as He hung on a tree to save your life and mine.
So what is this tug that this vaporous life declare.... will it be Heaven or hell and who will you meet there?
Heaven far glorious than words can describe as the opportunity awaits to see Jesus face to face.
Or will it be hell, eternal torment resides there. Every want every need will bur…

For all women who have been kicked in ministry

For all women who've been kicked for being in ministry:
By Michelle James freely given by the Holy Spirit

"But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought
things that are:" 1 Corinthians 1:27-28 Check this out!

The Lord has used MANY women to fulfill His purposes, but one instance in particular excites me personally! On the third day after Jesus was crucified for men's sin and buried in a borrowed tomb, these women went to care for Jesus body. When they arrived they found the tomb empty and spoke with two angels.

"And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest. It was Mary Magdalene and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them…

The Perfect Sacrifice

"And whosoever offereth a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the LORD to accomplish his vow, or a freewill offering in beeves or sheep, it shall be perfect to be accepted; there shall be no blemish therein. Blind, or broken, or maimed, or having a wen, or scurvy, or scabbed, ye shall not offer these unto the LORD,nor make an offering by fire of them upon the altar unto the LORD." Leviticus 22:21-22

Look at the requirements here and relate it to us broken feeble people... We are/were blind, broken, maimed...everything the LORD said an acceptable sacrifice cannot be! Even the animal had to meet these requirements! But One came, perfect & complete to lay His life, a perfect Sacrifice for you and me.
"For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dea…

Pit of Despair

At some point in our lives we dig ourselves into a pit, mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually &/or financially. These are all interrelated! Compromise & sin go hand in hand. Soon, this pit becomes our "comfort zone", fear of the unknown keeps us quietly tucked in and the beat down has us so weak many give up! This is the pit of despair. There is hope! Hope in Christ! He is the One who pulls us out. Surrendering to His call & Will, laying down our powerless power trips, selfish ambitions and trading it for His beautiful cross. It's by His strength we can climb out! The Word says, "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Philippians 4:12 The *KEY* is remaining in Him! See, there are others around you who enjoy your company in this pit! Often they will come against you with fierce discouragement to try to keep you focused on the pit, the depth, the width and not on Christ! However, "What shall we then say to these thin…

"why so much sorrow, why so much pain?"

Why so much sorrow, why so much pain? By Michelle James Given by the Holy Spirit
Some ask..."why so much sorrow, why so much pain?"... I tell you friend, it comes with being a daughter of the King.  You see, I have this peace, this hope, and love I want to share, but it seems so little rarely even care. They can be set free from this world and all it cares, but when I invite them to the cross seldom few meet me there. The Master has brought me through valleys deep and places I thought were beyond reach. He's taken me up to mountain highs and valley lows to streams far too beautiful for my eyes. I want to share this journey too...see, it’s why Jesus died for me & you.  Some say, the cost is too high and the road is too steep, the journey is long and my flesh is weak. They fail to see, we are not alone, as He provides every need from His gracious Throne. There's no burden to great for His tender care, He's near to all who will meet Him there. This place…
