God And Man Talk About Driving

God created the world and man and before – even Tom Cochrane, the Lord said, “this Life IS a Highway, sure to make you lose your mind. But not to worry, I have equipped you with gifts, and free will. Do as the Eagles advise and Take It easy, don’t let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy.

On this earth you and all of the creatures, even the Beatles have a Ticket to Ride.” And just like that man was hungry for the journey. Immediately he took off – with Meatloaf, like a Bat Out of Hell. On a dark desert highway, man listened to the Eagles all the way to Hotel California. He and Chuck Berry got their kicks going west and east on Route 66, but over time man learned, just like ACDC had, that he might be on a Highway to Hell.

Man was exhausted. If he was heading to where he should be, why was it so draining at times? Man cried out, “I Drove All Night, Lord.  I drove all night, just like Roy Orbison. He got an amazing talent, fame and money. All I got was lost, and my back hurts. It isn’t fair. Here I am, I Wallflower with One Headlight. But there’s got to be an opening somewhere here in front of me, through this maze of ugliness and greed. I’m just deflated, Lord, straight out of gas.”

The Lord replied, “slow down there Prince. You’re like a Little Red Corvette; moving too fast. Your life is not a Drive By, to be seen from the window of a Train. Every time you are On the Road Again, you are never alone. Whether you hear the voice of Willie Nelson, or Bob Seger, it is always me who is with you.”

Man looked again toward the Beatles and he asked the Lord, “maybe you can Drive My Car? Jesus, Take the Wheel like you did for Carrie Underwood!” Man pleaded, “Be like Melissa Ethridge and say to me ‘You Can Sleep While I Drive. I’ll go wherever you take me, Lord. You know best for me so I’ll just park myself right here and wait for you.”

“Child”, the Lord said, “I am the ruler of your spirit. You must guide your flesh throughout this world but we are better together. Lean into my spirit that resides within you. You always Ride Wit Me, like Nelly rides with City Spud. No more whining or excuses. Just Drive, like The Cars. Drive like Alan Jackson. Shut Up & Drive, like Rihanna. Take this JourneyFaithfully, because I will always have faith in you.

Courage means…

Courage means you get back up again after you’ve been knocked down.

Courage means you face your fears and move past them.

Courage means you stand up and remain confident in the face of your bullies.

Jesus was the King of Courage and He lives inside of you!

Refuse to let your enemy kick dirt in your eyes or spew lies in your ears.

YOU are a child of the Most High God.

You are someone heaven knows.

YOU are profoundly important to the greater Kingdom story.

So rise up, wrap yourself up in courage, and face your day.

God is with you! ~ Fenich Jerry

Welcome

Worthy Thought: We should always be motivated by love and compassion.

“An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest.

Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had the child stand beside him.

Then he said to them, “Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For he who is least among you all he is the greatest.”

-Luke 9:46-48

Every Season

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:” -Ecclesiastes‬ ‭3:1‬ ‭NIV‬‬

In life, seasons come and they pass. Some are memorable and some are painful. We don’t get to choose when or how they will transpire. We only get to choose how we will participate in them.

Hold On My Child

I know many of My son’s and daughter’s

are battle weary

Many are ready to throw in the towel

This has been a season of endless

challenges and trials for many

They feel defeated and drained

Everywhere they turn

the enemy is turning on the heat

And all they can do is watch

how their lives are spinning out of control

One moment everything still fine

The next moment everything falls apart

I see you standing with a finished puzzle

in your hand

The next moment it falls

to the ground

Pieces scattered everywhere

You fall to the ground trying

to collect the pieces

Then you realize that it’s going to take you

forever to put everything back together

You look up, defeated and lost

For its a reminder of your life

Spinning out of control

You hanging on by a thread

That’s how many feel at this moment

Your life feels scattered

All over the place

Your mind is racing

Trying to think of solutions

It feels like nothing will ever work out

Like there is no way out of all the challenges

That is choking the life out of you

Hold on to Me my child

I know you feel like hiding

You feel so alone

My voice has become quiet

You think I have left you

to fend for yourself

I am always with you

Even in your darkest hour

When your pain overtakes

every part of you

And you feel like your heart will never run free

I am working on your behalf behind the scenes

Making everything beautiful

in My time

I will come through for you

Like I always have

In this last stretch I would

want you to hide in Me

Focus on My plans and purposes for you

Focus on My dreams and promises

Know that I am true to My word

I will steady your heart and mind

As you seek My face

Don’t fight your battle’s in your flesh

Rest while I fight for you

For it’s not by might ,nor by power,

but by My Spirit

Let faith be your anchor

While I strengthen every

weak place in you

Look back over your life

I was always there to carry you through

every trying time

Why would I leave you now?

You are on My schedule and

We are right on time!

Soon you will marvel as every piece

of your puzzle will fall into place

You will taste My goodness

As it is payback time!

Every area of your life where the enemy

thought he had the upper hand

Will experience divine breakthrough

I am accelerating you into

every dream I have for you

Hold fast dear one

Let no one steal your focus

My anointing will destroy every yoke.

In My Blood

The world tells us to grab a drink, grab a person for casual comforts, that will make it all better. In this popular secular song it is asking for someone to help them out; Now!

Someone is already here! Jesus!

It is in His Blood to overcome all fear anxiousness and loneliness.. plus so much more.

It isn’t in our blood to give up because when we are in Christ – Romans 8:37 says we are more than conquerors and Overcomers.
