This Sunday I intend to preach a sermon entitled you can handle this. The scripture lesson which forms the foundation for this message is based on philippians 427,” i can do all things through him who strengthens me.” I would like to share a prayer I’ve been thinking about all week which emanates from the scripture.
Lord grant me the insight, wisdom, strength and love to handle every challenge, solve every problem and overcome every obstacle in my way. Remind me that you have strengthened me and prepared me for this moment and time. grant me the confidence to know that I can do all things because of you in Jesus name I pray Amen
I see your blessings in the smallest of things, from the tiny inch worm, to the foam on the ocean’s waves, I see your Blessings in everything from the shining. Of the sun, to the glow of stars at night, the cry and laugh, of the baby,. I see your blessings jn everything. I see you as I feel my breathing which rises and falls without my thoughts,. I see your blessings in everything. from the money in my pocket, to the steps of my feet,. I see your blessings and everything raven from the rising of the sun. To the setting of the Same I see your blessings in everything.Thank you God for this life.Thank you for this love,. Thank you for this love.. In Jesus name I pray.

I believe your best days are still in front of you. No matter how old you may be, or broken down your body may seem, I believe your best days are still in front of you. Why? Because our best days are actually bigger then our personal best for any one activity. The athlete strives to rise above their personal best. However, there comes a day when the human body can no longer run, dribble, swing a bat, tackle, break a tackle, than what it used to do or once did. Some may ask me how then can our best days be in front of us? Your best day, in my opinion, transcends your best day for any one particular activity, but rather it is relative to the moment you are living in right now.
When I was 10 years old, the things i liked to do were different than what I like to do now.
At 10 years of age I liked to play football. I played football during lunchtime recess, in the street after school, and little league football on an organized team. I remember vividly even now, how consumed I was with this sport. I would Daydream about the upcoming games. After the games, I would replay the games in my mind. Between 10 and 12 I was consumed with Little League football. When I turned 13 and 14 I played football in high school, and I ceased thinking about Little League football. The point I’m making is that every stage of life is relevant for the moment in which we live. In the 10th grade in high school, I began focusing on music, and in a sense, was enthralled and virtually addicted to music on every level. The symphonic band in high school, with its long rehearsals rap to me around it’s finger. The R&B band that I played with was like a dagger to my heart, and I love that music even to this day. Now, is a full blown minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, I love gospel music, scripture, preaching the word, listening to the word, teaching the word. The point I’m making is that my interests has evolved. That does not diminish how I felt last year, but only to recognize that I’m living for this spiritual moment which is right now.
This Sunday I will be preaching a sermon on the theme, your best days Yet. The scripture for this lesson is taken from philippians chapter 3 starting at verse 14
Philippians 3 12 Not that I have already obtained this or have already reached the goal; but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. 13 Beloved, I do not consider that I have made it my own; but this one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus. 15 Let those of us then who are mature be of the same mind; and if you think differently about anything, this too God will reveal to you.
Protect me Jesus from the shadows, the shadows that move and the shadows that are stationary. Protect me from the imaginations of my heart. Protect me from those who would do me harm. Protect me from those who are intentional, and protect me from those who’s simply are not paying attention. Protect me from the shadows, the shadows that move, and the shadows that remain in place. Protect me from the shadows of my mind. In jesus name i pray amen
