    The God Pocket How many of you would like to do something for God this week or this month but just don't know how to or when or where? Well I heard about the God Pocket...Well the best gifts in life is not when you get something but when you give something,The God Pocket is a certain amount   of money that you may put aside as your change a couple of dollars away here and there and this is what many call the God ...Pocket .You put this money aside only for Gods work outside of church and don't touch it and wait for God to move on you and when its time God will show you to whom to give it to..This is Called The (God Nudge )when you feel the pull to give this to someone you may not even know ,But heres the thing,Gods knows your need and others also,You coud be and answer of prayer to someone even though it may just be a couple of dollars. You will be used of God to meet the need of someone who needs it.Example, a man was in a restaurant who had his God pocket with him and he felt to go outside for a minute,he saw a young man by the road and he felt God nudgeing him to give this money to he walked up and handed this young man the money,he said whats this for ,the gentle man siad I felt you may need this and the young man said I been standing here praying for money for a cab to get home and then you walked up. So see if you give your money to God and have a God pocket see how God can use you this month..God Bless


    "Jesus Is Coming Soon"
    Those who wait on the Lord,He shall renew your strength!
    Yea Though I walk through the shadow of death, I will fear no evil!
    Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised!
    I have great news! The Lord Is coming Soon!One day soon he will sound the call for his saints to come home..friends I feel such an expectancy the time is drawing near...if you listen on the radio now this week ,,what will you hear is preachers preaching about the rapture going to take place.And this will take place,When we do not know. but God died for our sins that we might be saved,All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.John 3:16 say's For God so loved the world,that he gave his only begotten son..That whosoever believeth on him should not perish but have everlasting life.Have you tried everything in life? looking for fullfilment? You won't find it until you find Christ? How do you find him/ well he is there waiting for you to ask him in right now.Nothing can satisfy your soul and your mind but God.People always want more even when they think they have it all ,But there is nothing can satisfy us completly except the lord..Why because he knows our needs,and because he knows our frame, he knows our thoughts a far off,trust in the Lord with all your heart and he will supply your need! This is Ted Elvis Food for thought God bless..
    Those who wait on the Lord,He shall renew your strength!
    Yea Though I walk through the shadow of death, I will fear no evil!
    Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised!

    "Christians On life Support" A man or woman goes into the hospital and is very sick and becomes nonresponsive to which he or she must be put on life support to live .They are still alive but rely on a machine to keep them alive.Many christians get stuck in that rut and are the same way,They get spiritually sick and dont realize it to the point to where they get become nonresponsive to the of God .Kinda like walking zombies getting bit by the world,Going through the motions of church and having the talk but no walk with Christ. They are not dead but then also never really alive.You've heard that expression you are what you eat,Well this is true.If we eat of the world and what it gives we bring forth it's worldly fruit,But when we eat of the word of God and seek God we bring forth his fruit and true life begins to grow in us ..There is true life in the word of God but we must be consistant when we choose to get closer to God, if we don't read or go to church regularly our spiritual man becomes weak leading us to become nonresponsive, we become to be put on on God's life support system.If we didn't eat everyday in this life to live we would eventually starve and die, So the same is in the spiritual things of God.Yes God will keep us But he wants more out of our daily walk with him instead of taking him for granted all the time,It is very easy to do to get caught up with this life and its entanglements but he wants a relationship with you.Let us be sure to keep God alive in us and not get stagnant in our walk with God, Go to church if your able and make a point to read and seek him daily.Have a great day! God Bless ,Food For Thought

    "Dare To Be A Christian" When we were young so many times we would here someone say the phrase..I dare you to do that or to do this..or see a sighn that says( keep Off the grass) or (Don't touch wet paint) And suddenly sometimes you may want to do it because of the thrill of not getting caught, It's where the devil also plants the little seed and say's oh it's okay know one will know it's okay... go ahead.It's hard to be strong sometimes especially when you really want to please God and be the good example,We are only of flesh.But we can over come this,This is why..John 16:33, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”Jesus never puts on us more than we can bear...even though we can not see the results of our affliction afar off the Lord Is working things out for our good.You know through are battles and test we are made strong..we are actually stronger than we realize, and God shows us this threw our battles we face that we may grow in faith in him.If God gave us all we needed at one time we would never know how to trust and wait on the Lord.though waiting is hard it is nurturing for our soul because why ..Isaiah 40;31 say'sBut they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
    Romans 8:28
    And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
    John 15:9
    As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
    So be strong in the lord and in the power of his might and Dare to Be a Christian.... I dare Ya! ;) God Bless.. Food for Though

    (Getting Back To The Pool)
    2Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
    3In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
    4For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the w...
    ater stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
    5And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
    6When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
    7The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
    8Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
    9And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.

    It's time we get back to the pool, It's time to get back to the place where we are expecting God to show up, Not just at church not just in our homes or in our car but in that place where we feel or have felt closest to God it could be anywhere really.. Some people say I never have anyone to come visit me or I dont have no friends but sometimes we are so busy looking for the physical realtionship we forget to look for the spiritual relationship with God and the sad part is,that he is there all the time waiting for you to look for his presence,.The people at the pool of Bethesda had needs and were blind and crippled and deaf and more... and really needed a touch from God... and waited for the moving of the water so they would be healed,and we need Gods touch to everyday, not just on Sunday and Wednsday but everyday.And many of us are healthy with no afflictions to hinder us are very blessed.How much more we could become stronger in the Lord if we just waited on the moving of the spirit everyday and expecting him to move.Such a blessing it would be also on the job and and with your friends and in your home and even in walmart...Yes in walmart..God can speak to you and move on you anywhere..even when he say's wait don't buy it .I got something better for ya,,, Funny its true,, and you all have been there when you here that small voice that says wait..Not my favorite either to hear but God Knows best.I pray you all have a great Sunday and lets all get back to the pool of expectantsy in our daily lives, and God bless all of you that do watch and wait for God to move it makes your walk closer to him.God is everywhere!amen, You just gotta look.Food For Thought.
