ABOUT ME!

YET, ITS ALL ABOUT HIM!

Amazing grace How sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me, oh I once was lost But now I'm found Was blind but now I see
My chains are gone, I've been set free. My God my Savior has ransomed me. And like a flood His mercy rains Unending love, Amazing grace

A Little Bit AboutME !!

I HAD IT ALL FIGURED OUT! Then, God Happened……
I have to confess that when I was about to publish my first Christian book, my previous plan was to go out there and make a name for myself. I had it all planned out and I knew exactly how I was going to make it as a writer. I knew exactly where I wanted to be as an author, speaker and expert in my field. I was so sure how I was going to impact the world for Him. Above all else, my intentions were pure, at least that’s what I thought. I wanted my lukewarm brothers and sisters to taste how good He is, like I did. More than anything else in this life, I wanted everyone to learn to love Him and live a deep life of oneness with Him, right here and now.

While my ideas were pure, but, I wanted to build a brand where people would have been saturated with my pictures and the message of the gospel out there. I was going to be invited on every Christian radio and television shows in North America. Funny thing is, it was as if Satan knew my weakness because, suddenly I had two offers. One in leadership of a Pentecostal Church where the Pastor was impressed with me, my knowledge of God and my plans to touch the world for Him. The second offer was basically the same but with a ground breaking Baptist Church. To my surprise, God spoke to my heart and told me “silly child of mine, you are going to be completely anonymous while I do the work through you!” Needless to say I was heart broken, and once more, my dreams were shattered. But, I knew there was no disputing His will and plans for my life and I had to make room for Him because, in the end, it is not about me.

Strangely, all the time I was planning to impact the world for Him, in my way, I had no idea that I was making it about me and everything was in the flesh. We can be so blinded by the corrupt nature of our own hearts and the subtle work of Satan who truly enjoys luring us away from God, that we are totally oblivious to what is obvious to everyone else.

In His Agape Love, M. J. Andre

A PRAYER FOR THE SOUL TO OUR MAKER!

Blessed be God, my Maker! Blessed be God, my Savior! Blessed be God, my Comforter! Who giveth unto me my health, my life, and every blessing; my very present help and my protection. Thou hast kept me according to Thy great and most blessed compassion during this night now past against the onslaughts of Satan, and preserved me in health. I beseech Thee, Heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Thy dear Son, take me this day also into Thy divine protection, and shield me that no evil may assail my life. For into Thy hands do I this day and all days commend my body and soul, my thoughts, words, and deeds, all that I do or leave undone, my going out and my coming in, my walks and ways, my rising up and my lying down, my will and counsel, my thoughts [48] and desires, my faith and profession, the end of my life, the day and hour of my death, my passing away and my resurrection.

  • Who am I, that the lord of all the earth Would care to know my name Would care to feel my hurt?
  • Who am I, that the eyes that see my sin Would look on me with love And watch me rise again?
  • I am a flower quickly fading Here today and gone tomorrow A wave tossed in the ocean A vapor in the wind Still you hear me when I'm calling Lord, you catch me when I'm falling And you've told me who I am I am yours
  • Not because of who I am But because of what you've done Not because of what I've done But because of who you are
  • These words above are from Casting Crows's song

BROKEN CISTERNS

Why is it so important to us to have the approval of other people when in reality they will not matter in our lives once we leave this world? Are we so broken & deluded that we have become blinded, deaf, & completely deprived of common sense & critical thinking ability to the point where we would allow ourselves to find satisfaction in being led by vile & empty hearted beings?   

 Jeremiah 2:13  "For My people have committed two evils: they have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, to hew for themselves cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water."!

  • BECOMING THE PERSON GOD CREATED YOU & ME, TO BE! It takes work, commitment & a willingness not to follow the crowd like a herd. JOIN ME & let's pray for each other....Let's pray together.

  • “As long as you live, you will be subject to change, whether you will it or not - now glad, now sorrowful; now pleased, now displeased; now devout, now undevout; now vigorous, now slothful; now gloomy, now merry. But a wise man who is well taught in spiritual labor stands unshaken in all such things, and heeds little what he feels, or from what side the wind of instability blows.” ― Thomas à Kempis, The Imitation of Christ

    img

  • “God hath thus ordered it, that we may learn to bear one another’s burdens; for no man is without fault, no man without his burden, no man sufficient of himself, no man wise enough of himself; but we ought to bear with one another, comfort one another, help, instruct, and admonish one another.” ― Thomas à Kempis, The Imitation of Christ

  • “I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” – Marilyn Monroe

  • “You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” – Dr. Seuss

  • “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, Sail away from the safe harbor, Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

  • “Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: “What! You too? I thought I was the only one.” – C.S. Lewis

    img

  • “To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.” ― C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

    img

  • “I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.” ― C.S. Lewis

    img

  • “If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.” ― C.S. Lewis

  • “Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of - throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.” ― C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

    img

  • “To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.” ― C.S. Lewis

    img

  • “I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.” ― C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
