Recognizing the voice of God!!!

In conversation with someone once about the will of God and they said, "I mean really, who knows the will of God anyways, besides GOD himself?"  I was like HUH??? I mean, we have to be able to KNOW FOR OURSELVES the will of God. But this got me to thinking, HOW can we know the voice of God for ourselves? And I was thinking about it HOW do we recognize the voice of God from all the other voices that are speaking to us?
I came to the realization, that we can recognize God's voice the SAME WAY we are able to recognize the voice of a close friend or loved one, by SPENDING TIME with them. WHEN YOU KNOW SOMEONE, YOU KNOW THEIR VOICE!!! You can get a phone call from someone that you are with all the time and they can call from an unrecognized number and once you allow them to start talking to you, you will know at once who they are!!! Even if you haven't spent time with them in a while, if you'll just listen for a moment or two as they talk, you will KNOW who they are. IF your NOT recognizing God's voice, maybe its because its been to long since you've really spent time with him. Or perhaps its because you NEVERRR really took the time to get to know him in the first place.
There have been a few times that my close friends have ACTUALLY been able to trick me into believing that it was someone else that I was talking to. However, you know what I realized? It was ONLY because I WAS DOING ALL THE TALKING and they were just listening. In my excitement of what I was telling  and wasn't REALLY listening to their little uh, huh's and yeah's, HAD I STOPPED TALKING and ACTUALLY allowed them to talk, I would have KNOWN in a moment who it REALLY WAS!!! Sometimes we NEED to just STOP and LISTEN so we can RECONIZE God's voice when he is talking!
How did God talk to Elijah???
"...but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.  And it was so, when Elijah heard it..." (1 Kings 19:11-13)
I think sometimes that we are sooooo busy looking for the big signs and wonders, that we can't even hear or recognize his voice when He DOES speak to us. We ask God to show us something. We ask God to reveal His will to us and we're expecting a big booming, thundering voice from heaven and we end up ignoring God's DIRECT whisper right into our ear.
You know, WHEN YOUR CLOSE TO SOMEONE, when your standing by them, sitting with them, you don't have to SHOUT to get their attention, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO is WHISPER!!! If God has to take drastic measures and there are times that he will, its ALMOST ALWAYS simply because you weren't listening to him all the other times that he was TRYING to talk to you!!! You SHOUT at people to get their attention and IF your paying attention and your close to God, He won't NEED to SHOUT out to you with lighting bolts. When your close to God, all He has to do is WHISPER and you'll hear Him. Oh God I want to be that close to you that I can recognize your voice in a whisper.  
Recognizing the voice of God is not complicated and analytical. Its so simple, just like you know the voice of any loved one, that's HOW you will know the voice of God.There isn't some secret strategy or formula or connection. To know the voice of God,  you must FIRST  know Him.  If you want to  recognize the voice of God, all you need to do is spend time with Him.
"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them,
and they follow me."

God's dreams!!!

Recently, myself and several of my close friends have been talking about the call of God in which has caused me to do some pretty deep thinking. What has God called ME too? Annnnnnd IF we feel led in a certain direction, how does that affect WHO we choose to marry?  I was then listening to Holy Ghost Radio and Bro. White was preaching a message called "The Real God Chasers!" and in the beginning of the message he was talking about we are basically all born in love with ourselves and that ultimately that's who we care about the most...we are just by nature SELFISH!!! He was talking about how even when a girl falls 'IN LOVE" all she is thinking about is how that dream boat she is about to walk down the aisle to, IS going to make HER so happy!!! Its STILL about US!!!
That got me to thinking, how often, EVEN when striving to do things for God, how often are we still in SOME WAY thinking about OURSELVES?! Am I letting go completely or am I still holding onto my own will??? As a woman, your husband's call, becomes YOUR CALL. We're JUST the helper of the husband. This got me to thinking about how we need to change our perspective on how we are thinking about our future spouse. Its NOT about ME  and My dreams...MY CALL...God, don't bring me to the one that is going to fulfill all MY DREAMS, but the one that I can help to fulfill all of YOUR DREAMS!!!
I've been asked before if I feel called to a certain people or a certain type of ministry. I used to think yes, but over the years, God has allowed me to feel burdens and to reach out to people from just about every ethnicity, every age range and from all different back grounds. Rich, poor, black, white, Hispanic, Africans, Filipinos, ex-convicts, infants, teen mom's, Elderly, children, adults, foster kids, I've cried over them all. I've come to the conclusion, that ultimately, there is only ONE thing that God has specifically called me too and that one thing is SOULS!!!
 God you know my passions, my strengths and my weaknesses, who can I help the best to bring souls to you. I've started praying for God to help me NOT to hold on to MY OWN WILL and help me to simply seek to fulfill HIS DREAMS.
I think God's dreams can simply be summed in this verse...
 "For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost"(Luke 19:10)
God has no specifics, just that IF ITS LOST,
 it NEEDS to be FOUND!!!

How many people like to be called a LOSER??? No one does! None of us can honestly say that we like to be called a LOSERRRR!!!! However, I stand here before you all today with a confession to make...You all are NOT going to believe this, buuuuuuuuuut...
I'm a LOSER!
I know, I know, its SHOCKING!!! I mean, JUST LOOK at me, i'm like the picture of coolness and awesomeness itself. Buuuuuuuuuut despite how I may look, the TRUTH is
I'm a LOSER!

Now first let me tell you WHY I am a loser. According to the dictionary, a loser is someone that is known as  a misfit, especially someone who has never or seldom been successful at a job, personal relationship, etc. a person who has failed at a particular activity: Someone that didn't win the game! A loser is someone that loses at the game or competition. Even if you come in SECOND place, they may say that your the runner up, buuuuuut the TRUTH is that you didn't win!
Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut I want to tell you all WHY I'm a LOSER!!! You see, i'm not your ORDINARY LOSER!!! I'm a SPECIAL LOSER!!! You see the Bible says in, Matthew 16:25 "For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it."

Soooooooo basically WHAT the Bible is saying is that, WE ARE ALL LOSERS!!! Buuuuuuuuut YOU have a choice of WHAT kind of loser you want to be! If you want to try and KEEP your life and do whatever you want with it, the Bible says THAT YOU WILL BE A LOSER!!! If you think that God and your Bible and your parents and your pastor doesn't know what is best for you and YOU say, THIS IS MY LIFE and I am going to do WHATEVERRRR I want with it!!! The Bible says that YOU WILL LOSE your life! You will become a loser, because in the end you will not obtain going to heaven. You may have had it all down here in this earth and in this life, but the Bible says, In Mark 8:36 "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?"
 That means that EVEN if you have EVERYTHING down here on this earth, even if your rich, famous, popular and THE BEST LOOKING person on earth, if you don't LOSE your life for Jesus and you decide to just keep it for yourself, that means that EVEN with all those things that you had keeping your own life, when you breath your last breath and die your NOT going to go to heaven. That means YOUR A LOSER! Can you imagine, being the COOLEST PERSON on earth, buuuuuuuuut at the end of your life, instead of going to heaven you have to spend eternity in hell. Imagine hearing the devil say, WELCOME HOME LOSER!
 I decided that I didn't want to be THAT kind of a loser. I decided that right now, right here on THIS earth, I would lose out on the things of this world so that one day I can go to heaven and be a winner! Either way your going to be a LOSER, its either NOW or LATER!!! I decided that I would lose my life NOW So that ONE DAY, I can hear Jesus say,  WELCOME HOME WINNER!!!
"His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant...enter thou into the joy of thy lord."
(Matthew 25:21)

 "Once upon a time, there was an old man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach every morning before he began his work. Early one morning, he was walking along the shore after a big storm had passed and found the vast beach littered with starfish as far as the eye could see, stretching in both directions. 
Off in the distance, the old man noticed a small boy approaching.  As the boy walked, he paused every so often and as he grew closer, the man could see that he was occasionally bending down to pick up an object and throw it into the sea.  The boy came closer still and the man called out, ”Good morning!  May I ask what it is that you are doing?”
The young boy paused, looked up, and replied “Throwing starfish into the ocean. The tide has washed them up onto the beach and they can’t return to the sea by themselves,” the youth replied. “When the sun gets high, they will die, unless I throw them back into the water.”
The old man replied, “But there must be tens of thousands of starfish on this beach. I’m afraid you won’t really be able to make much of a difference.”
The boy bent down, picked up yet another starfish and threw it as far as he could into the ocean. Then he turned, smiled and said, “It made a difference to that one!”
The city of New York is the largest city in the United States. It has a population of 8 million people. The city of New York is itself is so large its divided up into five jurisdictions.  Manhattan, The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. The City of New York is desperately wicked and in need of JESUS. One man, a pastor in Massachusetts had a burden for the city of New York. Being a pastor himself he could not leave, but he kept that burden till one of the young men in his church was able to answer that call and the pastor sent him out to the large city of New York!!! It may have seemed like an impossible mission...8 MILLION PEOPLE...think about that 8 MILLION... HOW COULD HE MAKE A DIFFERENCE??? How could he make a difference to 8 MILLION PEOPLE????
To most people, it may seem like after all his time there that he didn't really do much to change the people of New York City, HOWEVER, I would like to tell you all today...

I was just a little two-year-old baby amongst 8 million people, BUUUUUUT I THANK GOD, that SOMEONE took the time to REACH DOWN, to PICK ME UP and PUT me in the right direction!!! You guys, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERNCE!!! We may not make a difference to EVERYONE...buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut we can make a difference to ONE!!!

Wednesday night cRaZy AWESOMENESS!!!

Okaaaaaaaaaaaaay sooooooooo first of all, for THE FIRST TIME EVERRRRR...I drove THE CHURCH VAN, with 14 kids in it to church, ALL BY MYSELF!!! You all have NOOOOOO IDEA how cool I felt at that very moment!!! I mean, really you know how AWESOME of a feeling it is to know that your a part of doing something for God?!?!!? Anywayz, it was just a one time deal because there was an emergency that came up that Sis. A had to attend to buuuuuut pastor said he didn't want me driving it back, cuz ya know, pulling in and out and back up out of parking lots is a lot different then just driving straight down the street in a van!!! LOL Soooooo they were trying to find someone to drive it back with me...which was really hard to find buuuuuuut THANKFULLY Bro. Jimmy was WILLING!!! WOOOOOHOOOOO!!! YAY!!!
Anywayz, the kids are coming by the abundance right now...its sooooooo AWESOME!!! Every week there are more and more kids...after three weeks we outgrew my car even with doubling up, last week we took the church van and it was even more this week and there were several kids that I actually forgot to go get... 
Its getting more and more each week...I think we are going to need an ACTUAL bus pretty soon...cuz there are some more kids that I want to go get but I don't if I should invite them if there is no room?!?!?! Sooooo excited about WHAT God is doing!!!
Our class was a crazy chaotic Valentine's Day Party...the kids had SUCH A BLAST THO...they loooooved it!!!
 So the teen class did a puppet show, they absolutely LOOOOOOVED this!!! I mean, they were talking about this all week long and how they HAD to come this week cuz they had a show to do...they did an AWESOME job too!!! The teen class has about five new kids now, which is weird to say cuz these "Teens" were THE BABIES in the group when I first started going over there!!!
Actually, this is really funny, a couple of weeks ago when I was over there, one of the boys, now young man in college, I haven't seen him in ages, he comes running over to me, he's like MARY!! I'm like, HEEEEEEEY!!! And he's all like, tryin to act all adultish, hes like, I'm 20 now Mary, what are you, like 22? I just looked at him and was like ummmmm NOOOOOOOOOOOO...ACTUALLY I was 23 when I started bringing you guys to church!!! He's like, what? I'm like, Uh YEAh! I'm 30 NOW!!! He's like WHAT NO WAY!!! I'm like  what, like I'm an adult when I started bringing you guys, and NOW YOU ALL are adults, you think you all got older but I didn't???
  Buuuuuuuuut I've decided that I'm just the CONNIE KENDAL of PENTECOST!!! Like how all the kids grow up and come back and just chill with Connie as one of her peers now...THATS SOOOO ME!!! Just ALWAYS THE SAME!! Seriously, when Connie gets engaged on AIO...All know that its MY TIME as well!!! AHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Clean Clothes Pile!!!

Sooooooo last Sunday night a group of us went to Macayos after church to eat. It was ME, Tommy, Stultz and Seth and Alyssa! Sooooo we're sitting there waiting for our food, having a totally random conversation. Alyssa was like, remember how in Ladies Of Legacy one of the ladies said that IF we want our clothes to last longer we shouldn't wash them EVERY time we wear them!?!?! the way she said it was kinda like, who would do that??? So I'm like oh yeah...buuuuuuuuut I'm just kinda being SILENT cuz I totally agree with this concept, buuuuuuuuut AM momentarily scared to admit this ...for FEAR of the fact that NO ONE else at the table agrees with WHOEVER taught us this in Ladies of Legacy!!!
Then Stultz speaks up, he's like, Well you know, that is ACTUALLY true, they don't get worn out as quickly... Weeeeeeeellll one person, that was all I NEEDED to admit that I do this!!! I was like, YES, that's EXACTLEY WHAT I DO!!! I'm like ya know, I just look at them and if they don't have any stains, smell good and are still clean I just take them and hang them back up in my closet!!! its just silent for a moment as everyone just kind of stares at me with these, YEAH RIGHT looks on their faces...
I'm like okaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay FIIIIIIIIIIIIINE...Sooooooo Maybe I don't actually like HANG THEM BACK UP IN THE CLOSET...Maybe they just HAPPEN to go on to the
Everyone at the table starts laughing!!! They're all like, we were gonna say, WHATEVERRRR Mary!! You sooooooo know that they don't just automatically GET HUNG BACK UP!!! We know your NOT like that!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! What can I say, they speak truth...MY PEOPLE KNOW ME!!!

Mr. Bubble!!!

Sooooo Sheree's Bridal shower was this past Tuesday annnnnd I was rummaging around trying to find something to wrap Sheree's gift in...which was an apron with my favorite spices, Mrs. Dash Onion and Herb! SOOOOO YUMMMM!!! Anywayz, I'm trying to figure out WHAT to wrap it in and I came across this pail...
When I saw it I was like OMW its PJ!!! IT LOOKS LIKE HIM!!! LOLOLOL Soooooooooo then I showed it Sheree and I was like Okaaaaaaaaaay I wrapped your gift in this because remember  back in July when we went to Williams and we were having that discussin in the car about how I Mary, am like a Bubble Machine...annnnnnnd how we all decided that it would just be best for me to marry someone that is just plain NORMAL??? Re-read that post HERE) Weeeeeeeeeeellllll...NOT knowing at all that Sheree and PJ were talking at the time, I told Sheree that because she is more of a reserved person, I see her marrying a more outgoing person...I was like, you know, A guy bubble machine!!! AHAHAHAHA!!! Soooooo when I saw this pail I was like, OH its PJ,
 Sheree's very own MR. Bubble!!!
Denae and I were explaining this to Sheree and Sheree is all OH sooooooo what are you all trying to say about ME??? That I'm boring, stoic with NO PERSONALITY??? Denae's like joking like YES!!! I'm like NOOOOOOOOOOO what we're trying to say is THAT, every NORMAL person needs a BUBBLE MACHINE in their life to stir things up and make it INTERESTING annnnnnd EVERY Bubble Machine needs a NORMAL person in their life to calm them down when they get TO BUBBLEY...Ya know maybe even have to pop their bubble a few times when they get WAAAAAAY OFF!!! AHAHAHAHAHA!!!

WHY i'll NEVERRR be a nurse!!!

A blonde got a job at a local hospital as a nurse. On her first day she was late to work. Whe she arrives at work the supervisor asks her as she walks in the door.
“How come you’re late?”
“It was awful,” she explains. “I was walking down the street and there was this terrible accident. A man was lying in the middle of the street; he was thrown from his car. His leg was broken, his skull was fractured, and there was blood everywhere. Thank God I took that first-aid course; all my training came back to me in a minute.”
“What did you do?” asks the supervisor???
“I sat down and put my head between my knees to keep from fainting!”
Ahahahahahahahaha!!! Nope, I'm DEFINATLEY not feeling the call to nursing!!!

A BIG Bride!!!

Generally speaking, when we hear that a woman is engaged, we NEVERRR say to that bride-to-be, weeeeeeelllll I hope you get BIGGER before your wedding day! You NEVERRRR hear a bride saying, I WONDER just HOW LARGE I can get before I get married. It doesn't matter WHO she is, a woman is ALWAYS working on looking her trimmest and best before her wedding day! YET, I heard someone just the OTHER day say, "We want the bride to get larger!"
Your probabley thinking, what in the WORLD??? Who would say THAT??? And juuuuuuuuuust WHO'S bride is this??? I'll tell you who's bride this is, Its GOD'S BRIDE!!! This past Sunday our pastor preached about witnessing and reaching the lost. After altar call, Bro. Jimmy got up and said that we want the Bride of Christ to get larger. When he said that I just couldn't help but LAUGH!!! Of course I was THE ONLY one that quite saw the humor in this, BUUUUUUUUT its just soooooooo FUNNY TO ME!!!
 Jesus is coming back for a BIG BRIDE!!!! And NOT only is she just a BIG BRIDE, He wants his bride to get BIGGERRRRRRR!!!! He wants to her to get LARGERRRRR!!! He wants her to get FLUFFIER!!! Dare I even say that perhaps he wants her to get FATTTTERRRRR???? BAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Jesus don't want no skinny bride...I'm just like WOW... Totally an in AW moment for me!!! Liiiiiiiike Heeeeeey Jesus...i'm RIGHT HERE...MAR BEAR...I'll be your fluffy bried!!! Come and get me I''m READY FOR YOU MY BELOVED GROOM!!! Purrrrrrrrrr!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
Oh man, that's whats soooooooo AWESOME about Jesus, he just ain't thinking like us humans...He thinks like GOD!!! and if that's what Jesus wants, lets HELP HIM OUT!!! Lets see just HOW MUCH BIGGERRRR we can get the Bride-Of-Christ to be for her groom!!! How big can we get her??? Lets challenge ourselves to help His bride get larger!!!
Annnnnnnd just in case your wondering, that's NOT by eating an extra Big Mac tonight, or buying that donut and Starbucks in the morning, in fact getting the bride BIGGER may have to come through us skipping a few meals in fasting, adding in some extra prayer, excercising by our streets to knock doors and doing whatever it takes to add souls to the church!!! It comes by reaching the lost!!!
Help His bride get bigger,

Wheres My Daddy?

(Written By Anonymous Writer)
*This article below was NOT written by Classic Mary Moments!!! It was written by a young lady that did a guest writing for this blog! She felt she had something that would be helpful to many hurting people, however she did  not want her name attached to it! She just prays that it will be a blessing to those that need it!!!
I don't get it said my friend, WHY do you like him so much! I mean, its like your stuck on him! I don't even see you with him. I'm like, well I mean, I think he's a really good guy. My friend said, I'm NOT saying he isn't a good guy, I just don't think he would be GOOD FOR YOU!!! I don't think he would appreciate you for the person that you are. I had just had almost this same exact conversation with another friend recently. I don't think he would be good for you! I don't think he would  appreciate the things that make you, YOU!!!
After getting off the phone with my friend, I started thinking about it, WHY do I like this guy sooooo much? I was trying to place my finger on it, I mean he wasn't THAT good looking, he wasn't THAT amazing, sure he was fun, could make me laugh, love God, SURE he was a great guy, BUT what was it that I was sooooo STUCK on him for? I kept thinking about it, its just that he has SUCH a NICE DAD... did I think in some way that, meant HE would be a good husband, because he had a nice dad???
I was sitting there and all of the sudden it HIT me! I wanted a DAD! I realized that subconciousley, every time I started considering a guy, one of the first things I would find out about is his  dad. Was he in church? Was he nice? Loving? THAT was exactley WHY I was so stuck on this guy, I wanted a father. In the back of my mind I was thinking, TO HAVE A DAD LIKE THAT....I didn't care about this guy's mother, I'm sure she was a wonderful woman as well, it didn't really matter to me. I wasn't looking for a mom! I don't need a mommy! I have the most amazing mother in the whole entire world. There is NO part of me that feels that needs to be fulfilled. Oh BUT
 Where's my daddy???

Singles stuf and MORE...

When I write, I write from my heart! I just wanted to share that with you all. I feel a burden for young people, singles, young ladies. I have in my life that throught obedience and submission, God's hand has preserved me in my time of singleness. My goal in writing for singles is to HELP prevent people from messing up their life in that time of singleness. If you have made a mess I want you to know that I don't write to condemn you or to hang things over your head. God forgives, he cleanses, he washes, he delivers, he restores, but there are still consequences. Consequences that leave scars. My goal is to help people avoid unneccary scars in their life.
I can't tell anyone how to find a spouse, how to get married, BUUUUUUT I can tell you how to make it to 30, single with very few regrets. And I say, very few because, WEEEEEELLLL... I'm human and yeah, i've botched it up pretty bad several times!!! :)))) I've said I love you when I didn't really even know what I was saying,  I held hands when I should have locked them up, I've said to much, i've been forward, i've been flirty, I talked to guys I shouldn't have talked too, YES, i've made some STUPID mistakes. But I've learned. I've been broken. I learned to wait. I learned to trust. I learned to submit. I learned to obey! I learned to pray!  Because of this, despite the longings of my heart, the hand of God has preserved me. He has kept me.
