Be Exalted

When we exalt God we place Him above everything.

Above our pain.

Above our hurt.

Above our circumstances.

Above our will.

Above our desires.

Above other people.

We put Him in His place of authority on His throne as the king and ruler of our lives.

When we bow in reverence and submission, spiritually to guide us naturally, we have to look up.

While looking up, we are unable to look at ourselves or anything or anyone around us.

As long as Peter looked at the King who stepped off the throne, he was able to participate in what to him was the miraculous ability to walk on water.

As soon as he took his eyes and focus off of the One who sits in power at the right hand of the Father, he began to sink.

But, Peter knew what to do. He called out to the Prince of peace for salvation. And Jesus saved him from sinking.

If we are looking up with our eyes focused on the King, we are looking to the same hill the Psalmist told us provides our help.

Calvary’s hill, where the King was crowned as the Savior of humanity, is where the Lord doesn’t slumber or sleep. He laid His life down.

The Lord of that hill, as the Psalmist continued, won’t our feet slip.

The Lord of that Hill won’t allow us to be harmed.

Like a good Ruler, the Lord of that hill watches over us as we look up and exalt Him.

I challenge us today, seat the King on His throne by exalting Him. While we watch Him He will watch us and take care of everything we need.

Go be great. (And search for these Scriptures) Someone is counting on you!

Bougie About Toilet Paper

I’ve had income levels that have varied.

I’ve had living situations that have varied.

I’ve changed spending habits.

I’ve changed the stores I frequent.

I’ve purchased cheaper alternatives at times.

The one thing that never truly changed-toilet paper.

Even when I did go cheaper, I never went cheapest. And it was truly an alternative for my usual.

Ion know. I just could never bring myself to TRULY, truly skimp on toilet paper.

David wrote a Psalm (139). It’s on point enough.

David went THROUGH went through.

He experienced victory and ran for his life.

He was celebrated and hated.

He was invisible to his family then seen by an entire nation.

In Psalm 139, David points out his realization that God is everywhere.

He realizes he can go nowhere, even making his bed in hell, where God is not.

No matter the lot in life you find yourself.

No matter how little or much you value yourself.

No matter what sin you have or have not committed.

One thing has not and will NEVER change.

God is there. God is here. As is His love.

Once we accept that, no matter what is going on, we should have peace. An assurance. A hope.

Sometimes it may be easier.

Sometimes it may be harder.

Sometimes we may feel it more.

Sometimes we may feel it less.

Sometimes we may see it more.

Sometimes we may see it less.

But, once we’ve received Him and it, we should never be able to TRULY, truly be without either.

Go be great. Someone is counting on it.

Where Is My Money

See Waiting Is The Action But Patiently Is The Attitude and the posts tagged in there. Issa lot.

I can’t make these things up. I called about my money.

Apparently, the person I spoke with Thursday didn’t complete all of the necessary steps to ensure that the withdrawal was completed. It may be my fault for getting off the phone.

Now, one may give me a pass to completely lose it. Nope. I get no such pass.

And quite honestly, I am super proud of myself. I believe I remained calm and told the person I spoke with I hoped I wasn’t being rude. He said I wasn’t and that he understood.

I asked to speak to a supervisor. I was under the impression that a new 3-5 days would start. He said that once a processor was assigned it would take 1-2 days.

He also said with the holiday, if it had been done on Thursday, it wouldn’t have reached me until tomorrow or Thursday. I told him I wasnt expecting it until tomorrow. But I wanted to set proper expectatuons.

He said escalating it would hopefully get it processed today. I told him I didn’t need to speak to the manager as long as the issue was noted for training purposes.

While I was finishing up with him, I got a call from the auto body shop. I had to call back. They haven’t even looked at my car yet. They will get back to me later. I kindly said thanks and hung up.

Cuz it doesn’t matter. I ain’t got no money to pay. 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣.

I just wanna say I’m proud of me. A different version would not be at peace. But He gives peace that passes understanding (Philippians 4:7).

He’s doing something. I don’t like it. I don’t understand it fully. I don’t agree with the method or timing. However, I am waiting patiently on Him (Psalm 40:1). I am attempting to be content in the state I find myself (Philippians 4:11). I know that I’m sowing something now that I will reap later (Galatians 6:7).

I know what my future holds. I can see in part why this is happening how it is. It is all a way to get my flesh, me, Karlissa to die and come under subjection.

I gave Him a yes years ago. I’ve tried to take it back. I’ve tried to question if I heard and saw what I even gave a yes to. I gave a fresh yes Sunday.

I gotta line up my actions, words, thoughts, feelings, and emotions with the yes and representing Jesus in the earth.

Easy wasn’t promised. Able was. I can do it because I can do ALL things thought Christ who gives strength (Philippians 4:13).

Whatever you’re facing, you can because He can.
