Arise With A New Mind And Don’t Complain

Every day is a new day. It may not be what you want or how you make like it but it is here among the living. When I began to think on the goodness of the Lord when I arise in the mornings, I have to humble myself and praise Him who is my Everlasting Hope and Treasure.

Eyes to see, ears to hear and a body that is able can overcome any obstacles in Christ Jesus for He is our hope. Our strength for today lies within Him. He is our Refuge, our Shelter in storms and our Foundation to keep a steady mind and foot during adversities. My heart has been prayerful for you dear reader. Know that God is present and sees all things. My words seem as if they are few to me in my own mind and sight because I can pour our much more but my heart is full with eagerness, faith, hope and prayer that you will have a good report amongst yourselves as you think about just how good the Lord has been to you.

Just like the above picture I took, I see each day and moment as a bud awaiting to bloom next to the flowers that have already came forth. What I am trying to say is that reflection should take place upon the many blessings God has already given you. Life itself is one of them so that is a daily blessing. All of your good days should outweigh your bad days as the song belong states. Do not forget and become unthankful for what you already have. Difficulties will come and storms will arise but trust in the One who has already delivered you. His mercy and grace has covered a multitude and for that we ought to just say Thank You Lord for there are many souls lost and walking in darkness who have yet to realize that He is able to sustain those who call upon Him.

May your thoughts today and everyday begin to align with the God’s Word and promises. The Bible tells us: Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6 NKJV)

Lyrics to I Won’t Complain :

[Verse1:]
I’ve had some good days
I’ve had some hills to climb
I’ve had some weary days
And some sleepless nights
But when I look around
And I think things over
All of my good days
Out-weigh my bad days
I won’t complain

[Verse2:]
Sometimes the clouds are low
I can hardly see the road
I ask a question, Lord
Lord, why so much pain?
But he knows what’s best for me
Although my weary eyes
They can’t see
So I’ll just say thank you Lord
I won’t complain

[Chorus:]
The Lord Has been so good to me
He’s been good to me
More than this old world or you could ever be
He’s been so good, To me
He dried all of my tears away
Turned my midnights into day
So I’ll just say thank you Lord

[Adlib:]
I’ve been lied on
But thank you Lord
I’ve been talked about
But thank you Lord
I’ve been misunderstood
But thank you Lord
You might be sick
Body reeking with pain
But thank you Lord
The bills are due
Don’t know where the money coming from
But thank you Lord
Thank you Lord
Thank you Lord

[Chorus:]
I want to thank God
Has been so good to me
He’s been good to me
More than this old world or you could ever be
He’s been so good
He’s been so good
He’s been so good
So good
So good
So good
So good
To me
He dried all of my tears away
Turned my midnight into day

[Ending:]
So I’ll just say thank you Lord,
I won’t complain

Breaking Up Fallow Ground: Dig Deep and Wide

Dear Father God, I pray in the name of Jesus that whomever this is meant for will receive this wholeheartedly. There is a breakthrough on the way. I bind any negativity that will try to stand in the way of the souls who need to hear and receive from You. Thank You for another day to make a difference. Bless each and every person who is able to make a change in their life through Christ Jesus if they just deny themselves and surrender to Your will. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Dear believers, it’s time to get to work. Our Lord and Savior needs us to be about His business. Time is of the essence. Turn that uncultivated land into cultivated. There is a great harvest ahead! Scripture tell us :

Sow for yourselves righteousness; Reap in mercy; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the Lord, Till He comes and rains righteousness on you. (Hosea 10;12 )

For thus says the Lord to the men of Judah and Jerusalem: ” Break up your ground left uncultivated for a season, so that you may not sow among thorns.” (Jeremiah 4:3 )

In order to sow good seeds, we must let go of anything that is keeping us from our full potential of walking with Christ. There are things that need to be weeded out….. bitterness, unforgiveness, a hard heart and any matter of such that doesn’t allow us to move forward. You want to bear good fruit right? Ask God to remove anything from you that is just pure junk. I’m calling it junk because it needs to go to the trash. It’s doing nothing more than cluttering your mind and your heart. In no way am I trying to be mean or not understanding because I’ve been there. If you have been following my blog then you know that I have had to release A LOT of things in order to grow. Cast your cares upon the the Lord and let your case be made known. Holding on to matters that is beyond your control will not help you. I can not and will not sugarcoat the Truth. By doing so, I am not helping you at all. Speaking in love and truth is the only way.

In Matthew chapter 13, Jesus tells a parable about a sower. He says that he ( the sower ) went out to sow some seeds and some fell along the path that were devoured by the birds because the Word was heard and not understood.( the enemy will come and snatch was was sown on the heart ), some sown on rocky ground in which the Word was was heard and received with joy but because there was no deep root to keep it flourishing, it died off.( when afflictions, persecutions and troubles come upon you, stumbling happens. You begin to waiver in your trust, your faith, doubting that God will come help you ) Then there were seeds sown among thorns. The Word was heard but the cares of THIS world choked and suffocated it. ( the riches, pleasures, decietfulness, etc.) and it proved unfruitful. Now we come to the seeds that were sown on good soil. The Word was heard and understood. It took ROOT. Now I have paraphrased this as to cut down on typing out the entire chapter. The clue I am giving: please read this chapter in full for yourself. Let God’s Word take root in your heart. Read His Word every day, study it and let it bear much fruit. Gain a clear understanding of His will for you and your purpose in life as a His beloved child. Pray and ask for understanding.  He will provide it for you.

As for what was sown on good soil, this is he who hears the Word and grasps and comprehends it; he indeed bears fruit and yields in one case a hundred times as much as was sown, in another sixty times as much, and in another thirty. ( Matthew 13;23 AMP )

Examine your hearts and see what is revealed. It may be a hard thing to do but if you are truly honest with yourself and want to please the Lord, then being obedient to His will and his way rather than your own is the best wayt to go. The Lord wants to do so much for you and through you. Don’t just be a Hearer of the Word, be a Doer of the Word. 

I love you and want to see and hear of your growth in the Lord. May the seeds you sow grow and flourish like never before. I’m praying for you! Now go put on your gloves and prepare to get dirty cause it’s time to clean house! I believe in you. If I can do it, so can you.

Be strong and encouraged in the Lord. You can do all things through Him.

All for His glory,

Terra
