Matthew 6:5-8, GNT says, “When you pray, do not be like the hypocrites! They love to stand up and pray in the houses of worship and on the street corners, so that everyone will see them. I assure you, they have already been paid in full. But when you pray, go to your room, close the door, and pray to your Father, who is unseen. And your Father, who sees what you do in private, will reward you.  “When you pray, do not use a lot of meaningless words, as the pagans do, who think that their gods will hear them because their prayers are long. Do not be like them. Your Father already knows what you need before you ask him."

This came to me the other night. You know how you go to church and who ever is praying is trying to "usher in" the spirit of God, and all there doing is more or less trying to be seen? At least that's what it looks like to me. If you read the above verses in the KJV it says basically if you pray to be seen, you already got your reward. So the only thing you get out of it is that people saw you do what you did. You just wasted everyone's time. I've always thought that if you have the presence of God in you, then you shouldn't have to pray to be seen. If you're praying to be seen, then you're just telling of your prayer life. If you're praising to be seen, you're just telling on yourself.  What God sees you do in private he will reward you openly. You praise and pray in private, you'll get rewarded openly. I've always been taught you come to church to connect with other believers to praise and pray together not to out prayer or out praise each other, am I right or wrong? I know my mom will let me know, but this is my blog and I can be right or wrong if I wanna. Booyaka.

BS stinks no matter where it's coming from. Google it if you don't know what BS stands for. If you don't know what google is, then I can't help you because its 2014, and that is just sad by this point. Anyway, I'm the type of guy that's allergic to nonsense. If there's one thing I can't stand is when I call someone out on there nonsense and they put nonsense on top of the old nonsense. I smell nonsense from a mile way, and who ever it's coming from, whether it's a saint or sinner, nonsense is still nonsense. I usually keep my opinion to myself when it comes to nonsense but when I call you out on it, don't keep trying to nonsense me. Please. That will tick me off even more. 

How does that flow you ask? I don't know, but let me see what I can do. If you're praying to be seen, you are doing nothing but nonsense in the church. If you're praising to be seen, then what's the purpose? Nonsense. I go back to this verse all the time that goes something like this, "God wants things done decently and in order." If it's not in order, then what is it? Non---you got me. and I pray to God that if there's anything like that in me. If I have the tendency to nonsense anybody or nonsense in the church, please deliver my soul oh God. I ain't trying to be a hypocrite.

Stay Saved,

Stuff on my mind...

So I've been thinking. About my future. About any particular dreams I may or may not have. What do I want to do in my life? For one, I want to one day be successful enough to help out my mom, dad, and sister because they've done so much for me and are a major part of the reason I'm still here today to type this. Also I want to give back to the church. And get a new snare and cymbals for the drum set. Travel these United States to meet certain people. Some would say travel the world and I'm not about that life. I want to travel to places where I don't need a passport. Feel me?

Something else I've been thinking about. When or if that day comes and I decide to tie the not. Get married if you will. Who would I choose for a best man? I mean the only people I "hang" with is at church and they're old enough to be my biological father (Tracy Morgan voice). Seriously though who would be my "best man?' Shoot scratch that, who would be my bride? I guess I'll cross that bridge when it happens.

I think about these things often. Like to one day again have cash of my own and not depend on anybody but Jesus. I also think of what if one were to ask me if I could change anything about my past would I? If you ask me this now, I'm going to be honest. I would change one simple thing. All of it. Again this is me right now. I would change it all.

To do all this though, traveling and such, it takes a dream. But it also takes action. I hear my mom telling me some time ago to put feet on my prayers. It's gonna take grind and time. But it will happen. As was said in the movie, Angels In The Outfield, It could happen. Just got to make it happen. Take that one step and God will take two as it's said.

There's a song out that says, "Who opens doors that I can not see, Jesus will. Jesus will." So my prayer is, "God lead me to the open door that I can't see." That may not make sense to you but it does to me. So why do I keep typing blogs with no comments on them since February of 2012? Because I like to blog, and if only my mom tells me what's she thinks so be it. It's something I like to do, and who knows, it may lead to something big.

Don't give up on your dreams. Don't give up on your purpose. Chase after them. Trust in the Lord, and He'll will make a way.

Stay Saved,
