My thoughts for today

Filed under: Uncategorized — Dan @ 9:19 am

Everyone please pray for a good friend of mine whose Father passed away this morning.  My friend’s Father was a musician and enjoyed making people happy with his music.  He will surely be missed by me, as he has given me and my family happiness by his music.

Happy Rocking my Brother!

It’s Been Too Long

Filed under: Uncategorized — Dan @ 9:36 am

I have not posted in a long time.  It took a colleague of mine to get me back to this site, I even had a hard time finding it myself.  I am just happy it is still here, it took several minutes for me to figure out where I had originally written these words.  I was talking to someone I consider a friend, this morning,  and realized that there was still a need for guidance not only for me but for other people too.  I used this blog not only as a learning tool for me but for a tool to reach people who needed the words.  I will try to post more and catch you all up with what has been going on all these years in my life, and how God’s Will has blessed me.  Please if you still have me bookmarked I would feel very blessed if you come and visit sometime, and feel free to leave me comments.

Have a blessed day!

When satan Lies To You

Filed under: Blogroll,It's My Life,Success!,Uncategorized — Dan @ 12:12 pm

Where God loves you unconditionally, satan hates unconditionally. Especially if you believe in God and Jesus Christ. God created mankind as benevolent beings, being able to think, decide, process information, and then incorporate that into our lives. Whether you believe in God or you do not believe in God, or take the Agnostic stance; God still loves you. The total and complete definition of unconditional love.

God is not going to force you to love Him or anyone else, God is not going to force you to believe in Him. God has the power to make you do anything He wants, He has the power to do anything He wishes. But, He will not control your mind, He will not enter your physical body unless invited, He will not walk with you unless you first invite Him to.

The point I am trying to make here is satan WILL enter your mind uninvited, satan WILL make decisions for you by swaying you away from the truth. Satan WILL enter your physical body, uninvited, and make you do, say, and think evil. You do not even have to ask, satan is always there.

You have to realize when you feel a void inside of yourself, that is the sign God is not residing there. When God is not there, you can be assured that satan or a demon is there. Just waiting for it’s chance to pounce, make you say something that will get you into trouble, and then laugh at you. There are times I feel turmoil inside myself, the fight of good and evil raging inside my body. To the point I begin to doubt to myself, I begin to doubt my actions, I begin to doubt what I can do, I begin to doubt the gift God gave me. I begin to think that everything I touch just turns to ashes. Why do I make a decision? because whatever decision I make will be incorrect, even if I make the correct decision it will somehow be manipulated into being wrong. How do fight this? GOD, JESUS CHRIST

Work hard, do the the very best you can, stay focused on God, use the gifts God gave you and never doubt them, never doubt your abilities or yourself. Trust God to give you the motivation you need and desire, trust God in your decisions, trust that God will be right by your side in normal life and that He will carry you through the times you just cannot cope with.

There will be people in this life who will try their best to break your focus, they will try to make you into someone you are not, they will ask you to do things that you may feel are unethical, or could possiblly hurt your reputation. You have to make the decision to whether or not you are willing to hurt yourself for someone else’s reputation, or refuse because of your ideologies. I choose to follow God and the teachings in the Holy Bible. You will meet many serpents in this world today, just like the serpent that Eve met in the Garden of Eden. They will try to trick you into feeling worthless, they will try to trick you into feeling depressed, the serpent has strong powers, stronger than you yourself possess, but, not stronger than God. When you feel the world caving in on you, pray! Seek, Ask, and you will Find, as long as you do it in God’s name. If you need counsel make sure you get it from a spiritual person, not just anyone. This is the way of satan, always stalking you, always looking for a way into your heart and your life. Do not fall to tempation, I know it is hard because we live in an “Instant Gratification” society. Satan will bankrupt you if you let him, and then he will take great joy in doing so. Keep your focus on our Father, He will never lead you astray, He will lead down the road of life, and will steer you clear of the road to death.

Obstacles and problems will come and try to test your relationship with God. Some of these are set by satan and others are by God, just see how faithful you really are. If you can look into the eyes of diversity, strife, and hardship and never ever lose your resolve in walking with God and following the teachings of the Holy Bible, God’s true Word, then you will come out unscathed on the other side. And feeling better than ever.

Satan lies, God is truth. Follow the truth, you will not regret it, follow God.

If you feel you have not been saved by God, that you are missing something in your life, if you feel a great void inside of you something that Alcohol or Drugs cannot fill, then please try God.

I pray that God touches each and everyone of you, whether a believer or not. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ that today your life is changed and that you are given and accept the greatest gift, life. I pray that God would free you of all your transgressions, and if you are going through a crisis right now I pray that Jesus Christ is there to carry you and that you let Him carry you through it. Because he that believes in Jesus Christ shall have all sins forgiven and shall have eternal life. Lord I ask this in Jesus’ Name for all who read this today.


Have a great day!

Sandals of Peace

Filed under: Uncategorized — Dan @ 9:07 pm

Sandals of Peace refers to Inner peace, and readiness. Do many of you know inner peace? In this day I see stress, anxiety, and depression. I see people walking around with guilt so great that they are in constant turmoil. How do I do this? How do I make me feel better? How can I be successful in life? If I do not please this person then they will not get done what I need them to do for me. What is inner peace folks? Read the following scripture:

Romans 5:1

1- Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us.

See, when you believe you too can achieve inner peace. Would it not feel like the most wonderful thing you have ever felt, if you could achieve inner peace? I do not know know many people in this world who can say, without fibbing, that they have achieved inner peace.

Ephesians 2:14

14 –For Christ himself has made peace between us Jews and you Gentiles by making us all one people. He has broken down the wall of hostility that used to separate us.

Do you see what Jesus has done you for? Read the above scripture carefully, we are all one people under Jesus Christ, this something He has done for us. In Christ he who was once your enemy is now your friend. In Christ he who once held discontent and anger towards you is now your ally. In Christ you are now one with those who hold contempt for you. You must forgive them, no matter what they have done to you or your family. I know it is hard, because I have a next door neighbor who seems to think that I and my family are wicked. Each and everyday I greet this man with a hello how are you and he greets me with his middle finger. Granted I too am only human, and it does anger me however, I pray for this man every night and forgive him everyday. Somedays this man scares me because, I am comfortable being at work and this man being right next door (he does not work). But, I take comfort in the following scripture:

John 14:27

27“I am leaving you with a gift–peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give isn’t like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid.

See I can take heart in knowing that my family is taken care of. I have anointed my home, my property, and I pray each and every night that Christ will watch over and protect my family. This is a great gift, Christ left for His people, Peace of mind and heart. All you have to do is believe in Him, I pray for this man next door to me, I pray that Satan stops working on him and that Christ does. You see, I see Satan using this man against me to get me to fall from grace, to greet him in the manner he greets me. When that happens then Satan will have won that battle, when you pray and forgive someone for doing something against you, you are in essence causing turmoil in their Satanistic lives, you are actually hurting Satan, becaue as a Christian you would not act the way this man does.

John 16:33

33- I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”

Can you relate to this scripture, I know I can. Believe and follow the One Who has given you the ability to get past the hardships, the trials, and the sorrows that life here on earth puts on each and everyone of us each day.

John 20:21

21- He spoke to them again and said, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”

And that is my prayer for you tonight, peace be with you.

I ask that you pray for me and my family as we are going through some financial trials in our lives this month.  We cannot make the DSL bill for another week, so if you do not see a new post for a bit, I will be here thinking and praying for you, and as soon at it gets turned back on I will be back here.
Have wonderful Monday and I will pray for your inner peace. Do not forget to get dressed in God’s Armor before you leave out tomorrow. God Bless you all!

Prayer, can it make a difference?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Dan @ 10:38 pm

The answer to this right off is Y E S. It can make a difference in everything you do, the way you feel about yourself, and the way you treat and interact with other people. It will make you happier, prosperous, and successful. Yes prayer will make a big difference in your life and can make a big difference in the life or lives of those you pray for.

Let me give you a link to a site I found recently, and do not get me wrong this is not an advertisement for the President or anything political as I hold the belief that, that decision is up to the individual person. However, folks whether you believe in it or not our young men and women are in the Middle East fighting a war against the oppressor, and that oppressor, in this bloggers opinion, is Satan himself. Satan is trying to bring down all walls and once and for all get rid of Israel, Irag, and any potentially threatening country in our world. However, like I said before whether you believe in the war or not, we need to pray for protection of the men and women, fellow Americans, who are over there doing their job.

Here is website that I would like for you to check out, and read it with an open mind Presidential Prayer Team please sign up and adopt a solder or soldiers and pray for their well being each and every night. If you are a believer please take 5 minutes out of your daily schedule and pray for these brave people, fighting Satan.

I am going to start a topic tomorrow on using the Armour, Helmet, Shield, and Sword of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ to your benefit and why by using this you should never be afaid.  Hope you come back for visit.

Have a wonderful Wednesday, and I will pray for each and everyone you.

May God Bless You!

August 7, 2006 – Prayer for Today

Filed under: Uncategorized — Dan @ 8:30 am

Billy Graham’s Prayer for the Nation

Our Father and Our God, we praise You for Your goodness to our nation, giving us blessings far beyond what we deserve. Yet we know all is not right with America. We deeply need a moral and spiritual renewal to help us meet the many problems we face. Convict us of sin. Help us to turn to You in repentance and faith. Set our feet on the path of Your righteousness and peace. We pray today for our nation’s leaders. Give them the wisdom to know what is right, and the courage to do it. You have said, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” May this be a new era for America, as we humble ourselves and acknowledge You alone as our Savior and Lord. This we pray in Your holy name, Amen.

Who Are You To Judge?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Dan @ 10:54 am

This Church in Kansas whose members are travelling the country protesting the war by showing up at funerals, for our fallen soldiers, are nothing more than a group of people who obviously have not participated in their own Church services enough or spent the time to read God’s Word. They carry signs that read “Thank God for 9/11” and “Fag Soldier is in Hell”? They protest under the guise that God is punishing these brave fallen soldiers for Homosexuality in our country; and they are obviously happy over their deaths. So does that mean that every soldier that falls in the pursuit of protecting Freedom are homosexuals? Let’s take this a little farther, if this is the case then that would mean that everyone in this country that dies would be considered a homosexual; Including these radicals and their family members.

Who are these people to judge our fallen soldiers? Who are these people to judge me or anyone else for that matter? In my studies of the Bible I read: “Judge Not, that you be not judged.” [Mt. 7:1 KJV].

In my opinion this display is despicable, I thought we lived in a society of compassion. I may be naive in my thinking but, at the very least I was under the impression that my Bible said the same thing as their Bible. Maybe I am wrong, maybe these radicals are reading from a bible they were given that was inspired by Satan. That is the only explanation I can come up with. Folks, Satan is working overtime in this country and you and I know it; but, a great deal of you will not admit that fact. We, as Christians must pray for these radical protesters. Do not hold hatred towards them as our Bible, the true Bible, inspired by God, says to forgive;

Matthew 18: 21-22

21 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?”
22 Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.”

Romans 12: 17

17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil.

Matthew 6:14-15

14 For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
15 But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

This is what needs to be spoken aloud to these people,not in anger but in love, and if they do not listen then you will know that they are inspired by Satan and not God. I hear people say “I am not even going to make the effort to recognize them because of their despicable acts”. Well people we need to, and we need to be out there in Southwest Lubbock with our American Flags, and our Bibles. The reason why is that this United States of America was founded on the principles of God; “In God We Trust”. I do not care if it is politically incorrect to mention God and carry a Christian Bible into a public place and you should not either. I hope and pray for each and every one of these protesters, that when they come to our city, they are blessed by God, and that God forgives them for these things that they are doing.

My prayer for these people is this:

“God I ask that You to bless every person in this city, and every person who enters this city, and touch the hearts and souls of those who are unbelievers.  Show them the way to true righteousness, and happiness, through our saviour Jesus Christ.”

Gob Bless each and every one of you! And God Bless Army Pfc. Andrew Velez and his family.
