If God said it then it's a done deal. Jesus spoke the word to His Disciples that they were going to get in the boat to go across to the other side. So, when the winds started to swell and waves were overflowing; why did the men on the boat start to act out in fear? It's a matter of who are you going to TRUST? Environmental Circumstances or God's Word. Text Mark 4:35-41

What is it that people see when they look at me?

When all is stripped down and the only thing that is visible does it reflect only you Lord? God help me reflect you, your love, your way, and just you for nothing else matters! What do I reflect? What do people see? What is my reflection showing?

Only 10 seconds left to breathe NOW What?

Imagine you are the person in this story. His hands are around your neck and within 10 seconds there is no more breath for you. This actually happened to me and when I realized I was about to die I only had roughly 10 seconds before I could not breath any longer. My last thought is, "Now I am going to die!" What would you do if you only had 10 seconds of breath left in your body here on earth to live?

Thought for the day: What is your Perspective?

When all odds are seemingly against you and the door is shutting to your victory; what is your perspective? I would encourage you to press on towards the goal of your heart that in faith you have prayed for so that marvelous victory in Christ Jesus can be revealed for all mankind to witness. If you quit or give up even in the face of opposition; you will never obtain your goal(s). So again I ask what is your Perspective are you the Victor or the Victim?

Thought for the day: What do I Perpetuate?

Today I prayed and then I listened. I was impressed to define the word Perpetuate. I asked myself why this word? Then I realized that if I personally want change in my life for whatever situation I have wanted; I must be the one to choose to change. I needed to realize what do I consistently do that is in direct opposition to what I say or think or believe I want to do (what I have hoped for being or realized or manifested in my personal and professional life). So, for me I had to define this word as what is my habit? Then what will I do if I don't want this habit to dictate my current and eternal destiny? I offer my own thoughts and breakdown of the word for how we can have life and that life more abundant. I truly believe it starts with the choice and active decision to change who we subscribe as the author and finisher of our faith...then all the other pieces of our life's puzzle can start taking shape - one piece at a time and one moment at a time,.

Myrrishm Message Thirty Six P.E.A.C.E.

PEACE is the prime objective. But let's get real in this current environment of civil unrest and violent siege against the US Capitol building it is seemingly far off. There is an obvious indifference visibly on display when the reaction for one group who are comprised of disgruntled privilege protestors because of the outcome from the electoral college votes violently intrude like terrorist againt the Capitol versus another who vocal march of BLM protestors who are in front of the Capitol for their belief that protection of their life matters. Absolutely both groups received by law enforcement in a different manner and yes this reaction causes a continual separation among the US citizens who are on the browner spectrum in our society. Disparity, Inequity, Systematic oppressions, and racial divide are a deep seated virus infecting and plaguinig us. What can we do? What should the Christian stance be in this time of unrest and violent insurrection? God commissions us to be Peacemakers. We are to lay the foundation of truth in action and live accordingly to that truth - God's word. So, Peace is simply not just a good thing to pray for and hope one day we achieve. Peace is an active choice to pursue. I am not a supporter of silence AND I do embrace Christ's examples for how we should depict being a maker of peace - an infulencer in the world. Let's explore more...By the way the choice is yours on how you conduct your life and declare your stance. Selah and Shalom.

Myrrhism Message: Thirty Five – Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis by definition identifies the natural transition an organism takes from immaturity to adulthood. When reviewing my life journey I am often amazed at how I was able to "get through" to the other side. My testimony is one forged with challenges sometimes by choice through decisions I made and sometimes at the hands of others unexpectedly. My faith has been key to the fortitude that I have acquired while on this journey. Additionally, the love of family and friends has aided me along my way. We all have a story. We all have a past, We all have a present. And we all have a future. The beauty of change is that it is constant, fluid, unpredictable, and full of hope. I pray in your personal life's journey that you can realize that with God all things are possible and that He truly desires your change to be one of betterment, joy, blessings, and love. The truth of the matter is that with God on our side nothing or noone or no situation can ever separate us from His desired end goal for us. Jeremiah 19:11 Gods Word Translation best says it this way, "I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope." Love to you all. Stay rooted in your Faith. Continue to give God glory. Be Thankful in all situations. And stand firm in peace, love, and joy! Amen Indeed and Shalom from Miriam aka Essence of Myrrh Proverbs 3:5-7
