Clean Slate

As I watched Dark Knight Rises movie in the midst of the action, thrills, and the superhero Batman there was a deeper plot. A young woman who blended in wherever she went. She wore many faces, mixed into any social event, and knew all of the right things to say. She had been groomed her entire life to be the woman that every man desired. Sleek, sensual, seductive, social, diverse, independent, and classy. This all was the outer shell.

Internally, this woman was damaged goods, used, lonely, and searching. She was searching for the means to obtain a clean slate. Her past groomed her into this “I can have whatever I want, by using what I have” mentality. She used her innocent appearance and seductive manipulation to try to fulfill the deep dark corners of her soul. Life to her was a prison cell that had her life record open and exposed to the world by the keystroke of a computer keyboard.

She wanted to be free from past errors, free from the filth of being used for pleasure by numerous men so that her needs and wants could be fulfilled. What was the cost of this so called freedom? Lying, stealing, betrayal, and her soul…her womanhood…her innocence…her dreams…desires…love.

Love was something she never truly knew as it was always manufactured. The false love she knew kept a record of every wrong she had done. It reminded her daily of her past. It always said that “IF YOU do THIS or THAT, then I MAY like you enough to clean your record”.

THE LOVE THAT GOD OFFERS IS AGAPE (UNCONDITIONAL) LOVE. As we read in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.

Love is the complete opposite of everything she was groomed to be, which is why in order for her slate to be cleaned she would have to be renewed. How could this happen?

You may say “nothing can heal her internal scars” but guess what Jesus Christ took on suffering, scars, and deep piercings so that we can be made new creations in Him (2 Corinthians 5:14-19). Because of His death our debts were paid and all of our slates were made clean. When we accept Jesus as our personal Savior we are made blameless, spotless, and clean in His eyes (Ephesians 1:4-8; 1 Thessalonians 3:13).

As we renew our minds in His Word (Romans 12:1-2;Hebrews 4:12-13) and understand that we are fearfully and wonderfully made in God’s image(Psalm 139:13-14) the shame of our past has no choice but to disappear because there is now no condemnation (Romans 8:1).

Today is the day to clean the slate of trying to live up to other people’s expectations (Galatians 1:10). It’ time to live to please our heavenly Father with everything he has placed in these jar of clay (2 Corinthians 4:6-7) we call bodies (Romans 12:1).

Accept Jesus today – Romans 10:9-10

Love (God) covers over a multitude of sins. – 1 PETER 4:8

Boundaries

Woke up to the the light of day at a beachfront hotel in Daytona Beach, Fl.
The beach shores are lined with birds as far as my eyes can see from the left to right.
The food this time of morning must be great and plentiful:) -6:45 am

I began to look around and notice that everything had boundaries…the sea, hotel balcony, life.
Lord why does everything have boundaries????

Boundaries are for your protection and guidance. My grace and love are limitless. In the world I created everything with a purpose (boundary) and if it goes outside of that use then it could be dangerous or unhealthy. Continue to dwell in my love and follow my lead (obedience) then your life will be limitless because you will operate in My way and not of this world.

MOTHER’S LOVE NOTES

Every year for my birthday my mom gives me a journal or a book. In each book she always writes a personal note on the first few pages. I am currently using one of them for my journaling and sermon notes.
This one was from my 27th bday which was in 2010. Her messages are always about two to three pages but I will share with you bits of it.

27 years ago today God gave me the desires of my heart a beautiful healthy baby girl. Isn’t she Lovely! (my theme song she gave me when I was born (song by Stevie Wonder:) Today as u look at you, you are no longer my baby girl but a true woman of God full of wisdom and power of the Lord and my best friend. You have made me proud in the way u have grown in your life and the way you kept living after the storms. They have only made you who u r today.

My mother is awesome! She is a True Believer of Jesus Christ and she shows his true love to all daily! Her ministry has always been helping others. She calls her home “The House Of New Beginnings” because everyone God brings her way is starting over n life. From past millionaires that have lost it all and need assistance and encouraging to struggling men and women that don’t know how they are going to make it through the day.
When I think about all that she has done for others my entire life I just Thank God for her and my Awesome Dad! For showing me how to Love In Spite of and show compassion bc we r only one thing away from being in the same positions.
GOD HAS BLESSED US ALL TO WAKE UP TODAY WITH A RIGHT MIND, HEALTH, & STRENGTH!! HOW CAN WE NOT BE GRATEFUL; MANY PPL DID NOT MAKE IT TO THIS DAY!!
MY MOM IS WORKING ON STARTING A 501c3 CALLED UPLIFTED HANDS!! GOD LIFTS US UP DAILY, HE GIVES US STRENGTH AND GUIDANCE (PHILLIPIANS 4:13 & PSALM 119:105) TO MAKE IT:)
SHE ALREADY HAS THE BASICS IN TACT BUT IS WORKING ON GETTING GUIDANCE TO GET IT UP AND RUNNING. THE LORD PROVIDES AND IS PUTTING NEW PPL IN HER LIFE DAILY ASSIST;)

READING MY MOTHER’S LOVE NOTES IN MY JOURNALS ALWAYS INSPIRE ME TO CONTINUE TO SHARE GODS GREATNESS JUST LIKE SHE HAS SINCE SHE WAS 17yrs NOW SHE IS 50 AND GOING STRONGER THAN EVER!!

I LOVE U MOSES & TERRI U INSPIRE ME!!
