True love

Family over the past few months we have talked about Love and what real Love looks like. Once more I want to touch on that topic once more.

Love in it’s definition is an intense feeling of Deep emotion.

Or we can look at Pope John Paul II definition of Love. Love is not a feeling but rather an act of giving ones self completely to another.

If love is an act the Jesus was the perfect example. Giving himself for all humanity. Jesus even said “no greater love for a man to show than to lay down his life for a friend” like wow like boom. The bible even says love is action not words or feelings but action. God is Love meaning He is in action in your life whether you realize it or not. So there is hope when all is Lost. Even more so God loves you! God is giving you his all.

Boom
I love you all

Love

Hey family,
I love you! God has been teaching me His style of love the past two days! It’s intense let me tell you! See Gods live burns like wild fire, something I should know, but I let life get in the way of my intimacy with My Father. Last night I went for a walk and began praying for a revelation of the love of God. Here’s what I got.
1. Yield your hearts
2. Give God everything. Give Him your desires, dreams,and your worst.
3. Be open to let Love Flow through you. Often times God is pouring his love into us and we keep it like it was just for us.
4. Don’t regret the seasons of storms.
In these God is building in you a greater Hole in which His love Can flow through you to those who need it.
5. Trust Him
6. Praise Him in everything
7. Just dwell in Him.

I was getting home and I feel all bubbly inside and I like I needed this. I need my Father and He came through! He wants to. He is overjoyed when we are open to His Heartbeat.
Be encouraged love you!
Jake

Monday again!

Happy Monday!!!

Monday always seems to get the bad rap, why though! I see Mondays as a new opportunity to better serve God! Let’s not walk out our faith just on Sunday! The race is an every day fight. We can’t just be Followers of Christ on Sunday, then hate the world on Monday.

How do we walk out our faith on a daily bases? I am glad you asked!
For me every day starts and ends with praise. Starting my day by praising The father just sets the day of right. Through out the day prayer and praise combine keep me focused on the father. It works for me. Try it out this week!

Love you
Jake

Engaged

Great news family!!!
I am engaged!!!
My God has engaged me in a love relationship like I have never experienced in my life. I want to let you in on a secret….

It’s an open relationship so you too can be engaged with God. Truth is family He wants you! He has a burning passion for your presence. He’s calling after you like a lover calls for his Bride.

See our father can not wait to get us alone to chat with us. Think about the last time you went on a date you actually enjoyed. You want to be alone with that person. To have some one on one time with them. Our Father is the same way. He waits patiently for us. When we walk in He’s over joyed to be with us.

Challenge:
Spend some time in prayer alone today. No music or phones. Just you and the father. Take notes.
Ps. I love you

Snapshot

I never thought God would pull me into a Devine intimacy with Him, but he has. My father desires my presence more than anyone or any false reality in this world. I have come to find a desire to be with him, something I never would have done a year ago! A year ago I was a man who proclaimed to have a relationship with God, but inside I was dead. Struggling to find a foothold in a world that wanted to beat me down and leave me for dead. A year ago I was battling depression and an addiction to pornagraphy. I look at how far I have come and truly I see how God has freed me! I found in God what I was longing for, not ever finding love on a screen. Over this past year I have found myself trusting the Father to do the unthinkable in my life. Restoration took place. I was a facade of a building falling apart on the inside, I am still under construction, and always will be as God continues to rebuild me, but I will be a glorious temple.

Family I wanted to share this because I believe it will be an encouragement to you. I want each and everyone of you to know that I love you. I am here for you. I want to walk with you every step of the way no matter where you are in your journey to the Father. I will be here cheering you on every day. I pray for you because the enemy has put a target on you. You are a threat to Him. You are all over comers. Family be blessed to day. Love you all

And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. (Matthew 10:38 NKJV)

Yesterday I had the opportunity to carry a cross through Strasburg Pa , for about 2 miles. I was worn out before hand from a long day at work and just tired from lack of sleep. But was quickly reminded of a few things.

One was Christ carried a much bigger cross after having His flesh shredded like cheese.

Yet another thought was Jesus had been awake for hours. Under a that much torment and pressure.
I truly believe Jesus had been so very tired and had felt that His Father had abandoned Him even before He hung on the cross.

Imagine the very heart of the Father though as his son, not guilty of anything carried the weight of the world on his shoulders. Imagine the The father weeping as He turn away from His son as He was being beaten to an unrecognizable form. God truly love us and Jesus’ heart lined up to the Fathers.
We are free because one man died for all the people as the high priest said.

Gods emense love for us was put on a cross. The perfect display of love as Jesus said. “No greater love does one show for those he love than to lay down his life for the good of another.”

Challenge for today
Be thanking God today for all the troubles today!
Love y’all

Just thoughts

Rejoice for his mercy is made new. Every thing is made anew. He calls his sons worthy and his daughters treasures. Like just king He rules but His mercy is great. We are His handy work. Like a potter He molds us. Like a lover He is intimate by breathing life into us. Like a lion His WORD is heard like a mighty roar. He whispers and mountains move. He does this and we are unaware of all He does. We fell in sin to walk in shame He had another plan. Redemption. JESUS! The very son who was perfect given as a lamb for the slaughter. Buy His Blood we are restored as sons and daughters of God. His love, made known to us through Christ Jesus, breaks down the walls of our hearts and gives peace in times of trouble, restores the brokenness to pieces of art. Freedom is found. Chains fall off and are broken never to be used again. Praise him for he does great things for you.

I Am the gentle whisper inside you, can you hear Me? Can you hear Me? Can you hear My constant love beating inside you, as close as the heart beating in your chest? I’m here. Settle your heart. Rest in My love. And hear Me calling to you. I’m calling your name. 

Just beautiful

Praising through strife

Oh happy day

Good morning family!

You are doing it right!
No matter where you are in your journey with God, you are fighting the good fight of faith. Even in the struggles you are winning.

Pause.
Thank God for your struggles

Play

It seems weird to thank God for our struggles but, He is doing more in the nitty gritty times than in the good easy going times.
So praise The Lord every chance we get. He owes us nothing but gives us everything.

Challenge for today.
Praise God when ever you remember to do so from this day forth

Love you all blessings and peace
Jake

Yo yo yo family. I have been praying for y’all and I believe you are all about to walk into a time of great oneness with the father. Let’s crucify our flesh and walk one with Jesus. God who was first intimate with you, when He breathed his spirit into your lungs want us to be intimate with him. I was listening to a song the other day and a lyric hit me hard. It went like this “be who I made you to be to desire me”. Like wow we were made to desire God. So family let me leave you with this, “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill can’t be hidden. (Matthew 5:14 NIRV)

Love you all

Jake
