My post is not to bash anyone. Jesus stood up for what is right and so am I. What's wrong is wrong, and what's right is right. And what's unfolding in this world is an irreverence before God.

I will forever be amazed in the way that God speaks to His people. The love He has for us is so great. The words He gives us are so powerful and meaningful. God doesn't waste time with useless information. He is always direct when He speaks. It's an amazing feeling to know that in a world filled with haze, HE IS clear. Certain. Definite. SURE.

Many times us as believers only tend to seek the Lord when we are in need of an "emergency," and then when the emergency is "resolved" we tend to just put God away into a box and have Him in a corner until its time to take Him out again. I've had my few shares of neglecting the Lord moments.. moments where I've been too busy with school or work to realize that my only communication with Jesus was a morning prayer or a few prayers of desperation. Its not easy to admit this when you're spiritual belief is based on having a relationship with God. Being a believer isn't about having a part-time relationship with God. Our faith is not equivalent to a job. Friday service and Sunday service are our working days, we clock in in the beginning of service and then clock out after those hours are up and head back to our chaotic filled lives, no.
Joyce Meyer's devotional called Taking God Out of The "Emergency Only" Box! inspired today's post and I wanted to share her "prayer starter" which I also found inspiring!
"Prayer Starter: Lord, I know that the Christian life is so much more than an "emergency only" back-up plan. Because You live within me, I want to know You as a personal friend. Rather than just calling on You when I'm in trouble, I want to seek You every single day." Amen!
1 Corinthians 3:16 ESV
Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you?

As a child I had a desired to travel the world and explore. Over the years that desire has increased. I mostly wanted to travel to fill selfish desires, but, I early encountered someone that opened my eyes. Changed my perspective and made my vision clear as day.. I no longer saw the blurriness of the world. I no longer desired to travel for SELF, but instead to help, to inspire, to share the love and hope that was shared with me… To share Jesus. I know, in the future, I’m going to get this opportunity but in the meanwhile, I’ll spread this love, this hope, this inspiration, through social media lOl.. And in my community, city, work place, wherever my feet lands. I will do my best to make Jesus known.
And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. (Mark 16:15)

In the Bible, David was called a man after God’s own heart. He knew God and saw incredible miracles throughout his life. Notice how in this verse David set his tone for his whole day by spending time with the Lord every morning. It didn't matter what was going on in his life, David had his priorities set. Even though he was mistreated by his family, manipulated, made fun of, hunted down by King Saul, and even made some major mistakes on his own; David realized that each morning held the promise of new hope. Just like David, if we make spending time with God a priority in our lives, we will see Him move mightily on our behalf. We should make it a habit to seek Him first every single day. No matter what is happening, seek Him in the morning. Let Him set the tone for your day and set you on the course for victory in every area of your life.
