He Wants It All-Forever Jones (With Lyrics In Description)

He Wants Your ALL! For His ALL!

Are there times where you feel like God just isn't listening? Do you feel like you are just at the end of what you can take and just ready to throw in the towel? Do you know someone who questions the faith they have in Him? Did you answer yes to any of the above questions or know someone who may?

In order to get all you need and want out of God.. He wants your all. Not just a part of you... Not just you on Sunday's & Wednesday's, but ALL of the time. You have to be willing to give yourself to Him. When I say give your all, I mean that you have to be willing to recognize and share with others ALL He has done for you. He wants you to recognize that you need Him. He wants you to preach His gospel by sharing your testimonies and speaking positive words at all times. Remember, our words are our weapons, so be mindful of them.

In order to get all you want and need from God, you have to be willing to learn Him. How do you do that you ask? Well I would be glad to share that with you. By reading His word. By seeking Him in prayer and praise. Familiarizing yourself with your weapon!! THE WORD! You have to continuously keep Him in all that you do, to get all of Him.

I was lead to share this with you tonight, because I don't want people giving up on God. He has not forgotten about, or given up on, you. He just wants you to recognize all that He can do, all He will do and/or all He has done.

He said in word:

"11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." ~ Jeremiah 29:11-13 ~

So, if you want HIS all... You must give HIM your all.

~Love from your sister in Christ

Testing! Testing! Testimony!!!

It has been a while since I have posted a blog. That's because the devil has been busy. It never fails though. That cotton-picken devil is a persistent one. The good thing about it, is that I am here to show you that he has No new tricks. That he will come for you in wools covering to destroy. You see, the devils goal is to remove the Christian of love, life and trust in Jesus as our life source and His plans for us.

I need for you to ask yourself one question though... Who sustains you? Who? Who sustains YOU? Your being, your blessings, your everyday issues and situations? Who? If a first thought comes to your mind, and it is not our loving Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, then I will certifiably tell you that you have a problem. You see, He (God that is) said in his word, "By grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works" (Ephesians 2:8-9). This means that there will be Tests, Tests and more Tests. Gods everlasting grace and love will not be made easy by the devil. But don't fret, be grateful. You know that when you are receiving Tests upon Tests that you are headed in the right direction!

Know that all the while God is giving you a choice! A choice to endure trials & tribulations and TESTS!!! To not take the easy way out. His kingdom is worth going through TESTS. He will NOT leave you though! He too said in His word, "Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him." (Revelation 3:20).

I have said all of this to say that God loves you. But that if Jesus can endure such cruelty for us and our sins, then we can forgo a Test here and there!!! For every TESTimony entails that it will call for a TEST.

Be blessed and loved.

High Demand!!

For a while, I have been going through. I have been trying to understand, realize, listen and learn what it is God is trying to tell me. When a wise woman told me that half the time we tend to ask God questions and demand an answer. Not really understanding, realizing, listening and/or learning that it is all in front of us.

Therefore I have to ask you... Is God your 'High Demand'?!

By that, I mean... Is that who you go to first for your answers? Do you seek His word? Fellowship with others? Meditate on listening for the sound of His voice? OR are you trying to handle all things on your own, and disarray the plan He has for you?!

Romans 8:31 says, "What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?"

When I read this I have to break... it... down.!

"What then shall we say to these things?" ~ Why do allow for worldly things and issues to cloud our vision. The older generation of men and woman use to say; "I have heaven in my view", meaning that they will NOT be deviated from their walk. Not by misunderstandings, lack of realizing or the inability of not knowing.

"If God be for us, who can be against us?" ~ If you keep God in 'High Demand' in your life and in all the things that you do, then you can't go wrong. If you keep heaven in your view, then the Favor of God will follow you.

Keep God in High Demand. He needs to be your air = Breath in His word and embody the Holy Spirit. Your food = Let Him feed your hungry soul with The Word. And Love = Keep Him in such High Demand that you long for the love He has for you. Enough that He gave His Son for you & I!!!

So when you are not sure, remember to keep God... "In High Demand" in your life.

With High Demand, comes His FAVOR.

Let HIM be in control!

Time and time again we try to handle situations on our own.

So with that being said... We have to STOP this cycle and let Him take control!!

Brother's & Sister's in Christ have you ever been at a point in your life where you have sleepless nights? Do you try to focus on living your life but all you can think about is what your next move must be in order to stay afloat? Or do you even try to find gimmicks to help in financial situations in your life and it always falls through or is not pleasing in God's eyes? I know I have, on more than one occassion.

We must stay in Prayer. We must continue to Meditate. We must show praise through Song.

When going through all of lifes ups and downs, God said - But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matthew 6:33). This means that when you seek Him... You allow Him to take control. Remember, He wants you to want Him to take control. Trust me! You can't go wrong by doing this.

In 2010 I challange you to let God take control!!!

>>Allow for God to do His will in your life.
>>>Allow God to guide you in the right direction.
>>>>Allow for God to enlarge your territory.


When you let God take control of things in your life, you will see individuals remove themselves from your life. You will see God change the light that you exude. You will notice that God places blessings so eloquently in your way.

So again... I challenge you to.... ...Let God Take Control of You!

Be blessed!

Stick to YOUR Faith!!!

In life you will be placed in unwanted situations. Situations that you didn't ask to be in. You will wonder:

  • 'Why me'?
  • 'When will it be MY turn'?
  • 'Will I be loved'?
  • 'Will I get that...(job, pay increase or opportunity)'?

In all of this we find ourselves wanting more. Grasping for more. But what are we doing in return?

You see... God wants more for us as well. Remember that He is a jealous God. ONE who seeks all the praise and glorifying. Yet we want more. But why? Why do we want more?:

  • Is it because we deserve it? =====> Maybe.
  • Is it because we prayed for it? =====> Possibly.
  • Or is it because we worked for it? =====> Could be!

If this is what you think... that's wrong. We should never do anything with the want or desire for a blessing to follow. We should constantly do His work and have FAITH that He's got our back. Do everything in His name without a tangible want attached.

You have to have FAITH that in your doing His work... He will guide you in the right direction. Even if it doesn't make complete sense to you. Even if you don't understand it even a little bit. You have to trust (thus have FAITH) that He will take care of the rest. He said it in His word... "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life." (John 3:16). That means believing without fully understanding sometimes.

Another thing we do that prolongs our 'victories' is not letting God do God. He got this! He got you! He don't need you to help Him be God. He needs you to have everlasting FAITH that you will be okay! AS LONG AS you do His work. Walk in his path. And help everyone along the way.

So if you don't retain anything out of this message... Just have genuine FAITH. With that comes all of your heart needs, wants & desires.

You'll Understand... One Day!!!!

As of late, I have realized that your life may never coiencide with anyone elses life around you. I have come to also realize that you must always keep your focus. You may never really understand and that is perfectly fine. There comes a time when you must praise your way through every situation, keep your strength and recognize your God, despite how hard things may be or feel!!!

We as humans will make many mistakes. We as humans will not understand what is going on.
That too is fine. All we have to do is Trust in the Lord with all our hearts and lean NOT unto our own understandings. In all our ways acknowledge Him... & He shall direct our paths (Proverbs 3:5-6).

God is not expecting us to understand why he may get us so close to a situation and then take us far away. He is not expecting for us to not wonder why He presents us with opportunities... Then with a snap of a finger, completely redirect our path. But... What he is expecting:

>Is for us to completely trust in Him.

>Is for us to set back and let God be God (He needs no help being God).

>Is for us to praise our way through every situation.

>Is for us to seek Him at all times.

>And then He wants us to show appreciation.

Now don't get me wrong... It is so hard to do this, and it is easier said then done.
But for God to see that we as humans are trying... He smiles upon that.
In God's word, He says; The LORD gives strength to his people. The LORD blesses his people with peace (Psalms 29:11). His word also says in Psalms 28:7; The LORD is my strength and my shield, my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in song.

So... Understand too that God owes you nothing... Yet we owe Him so much!
If you keep that in perspective you will notice that things will become more bearable.
