Blessed inspite of my Short-Comings

This means you too!!!
Romans 3:23 says 'for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God......

I was told by a very Influential woman at my church on recently she said to me
''When you brought your message last week I allowed the devil to overtake my spirit and not hear anything you were saying because of the rumors I heard about you''




 and then she went on to say that she thought that I was very arrogant!!!!

Now I explained to her that everyone of my shortcomings or things contrary to what the word says... that I have made the decision to do has not only grew critisizm in my life but those very things those ''rumors'' I use them 
(if true) to warn people what not to do (wisdom) which give my life (ministry) purpose.....

Ive realized that God can/will turn everything around for your good inspite of what the ''church people'' think about you....

She also apoligized to me and said '' because if my skeletons were let out the closet people would think the same about me''

So what Iam saying in this  Blog is that we need to take a Inner look at what we have done or still doing not judge people by ''what you Heard'' but get to know who they are and why does there name continue to surface... gather your life and look in retrospect of what God has brought you from and you will see that 

''ALL have sinned and fell short of the glory of God''
''No exception to this rule''


And when I addressed the Arrogant part of her apology I said that there is a thine line between 
<--------------


Arrogance & <---Confidence.......,





I told her simply because I know what dirt I have done against God, My wife, My church etc.... this keeps me HUMBLE because I cant throw any stones because I have sinned as well, and I said that Just because I know who Iam and want allow the stones that are thrown at me to penetrate my Armor doesnt mean its arrogance just means I must keep my head up knowing that people look at me as if they never made a mistake.....!

 God hasnt given me a spirit of Fear but one of Power, Love & a sound mind so In conclusion I say this 

Noah was a drunk

Jacob was a deceiver

Rahab was a prostitute

David was a adulterer

Solomon was a womanizer

Paul was a killer 

Which proves:
 Romans 3:23 that '' ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God

BUT God still used those people although they sinned and fell short and blessed them and they became men/woman that we pattern ourselves after Now...

So I encourage you not to stop because of your past use it to catapult you to the next level of your purpose.... because afterall

'' All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God''

KEEP GOING....... NEVER QUIT.......



2 Corinthians 4:8-9

8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.

This scripture really encourages me to go on 



INSPITE OF                         ..       


The Holy Spirit tells me that Iam....

Pressed-Move or cause to move into a position of contact with something by exerting continuous physical force

this pressure in life I face seems to be to much for me to handle BUT iam not 

CRUSHED

Iam perplexed or simply confused by why God would allow me to go through this 

BUT i havent lost my hope 

(Despair)

Iam persecuted subject to hostile treatment from friend, relatives, job, ect... but 

the presence of God is always 

with me (abandoned)

Iam struck down Getting my behind kick each and every way possible nothing 

seems to go my way but though it 

all I can get back up (destroyed)

SO I want to encourage you to ENDURE what you have to GOD will keep you in 

perfect peace the weapons that are formed will form but want prosper or prevail 

against you 

Keep the faith stay encouraged
