Rewriting Sayings #2

As I said a few weeks ago, I've decided to start a new little series called "Rewriting Sayings" this is where I simply rewrite popular sayings to say things that are glorifying to God instead of self. Refresh your mind with the first rewriting HERE
This weeks REWRITE is;
You are enough!
Image result for You are enough
Actually, YOUR NOT!!! 
(Buuuuuuut JESUS IS!!!)
It's all over the internet, Google, pinterest, there are notebooks, tshirts and hats with these words on it. While I LOOOOOVE the idea of promoting being our self, being natural, not trying to be something we're not. Not trying to become something or someone, through accomplishments, money, material things or trying to be beautiful through makeup or fashion,  THE TRUTH IS, we are NOT ENOUGH on our own accord. The Bible says,  "But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away." (Isaiah 64:6) 
The underlying meaning behind the saying "YOU ARE ENOUGH" is self-empowerment. There is NOTHING we can ever do, to make us ENOUGH, the Bible says that even our own righteousness is as FILTHY RAGS in comparison to the holiness of God. Next to God's goodness, we can NEVERRRR be enough, but God in His love and mercy, takes us in ANYWAYZ!!! 
"And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God." (1 Corinthians 6:11)
God knows the depths of evil, sin and iniquities that is possible in human kind, we could never be enough, so He chose to fill in the gaps where we come up short...
"For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." (2 Corinthians 5:21)
We don't need SELF-empowerment,

We had an evangelist at our church yesterday and said: 
There are TWO times to PRAISE THE LORD!!!
"Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord." (Psalm 150:6)

Soooooooo in February, for Presidents day being a day off VACAY day, we decided to take a little trip up to Prescott AZ! The plan was to eat breakfast, HIKE and EAT lunch there, buuuuuuuuut it ended up snowing up there, which for us Phoenix Arizonans is just AMAAAAAAAAAZING!!! (Btw: I have a LOVE/HATE relationship with snow! I LOVE to go to the snow and spend a day in it! Sledding, tubing, snow angels, snowmen and a few snowball fights, buuuuuuuuut I would NOT want to LIVE IN IT!!! After a day, i'm ready to part wayz! Buuuuuut can't wait to spend that one day in it again NEXT YEAR! Kinda like some people...AHAHAHAHAHAAA!!!;)
So the day turned into a day of eating breakfast at Cuppers, playing in the snow, (No one wanted to hike the mountain with me in snow! Psssh!) SHOPPING, eating AND MORE playing in the snow!!! Well people just LOOOOOOOOOOOVED my outfit!!! I wore a blue hoodie, with my snowman cap...I was very warm and snuggly annnnnnd apparently ADORABLE...not to toot my own horn buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut TOOT, TOOT!!! ;) Okaaaaaaaaaaay, no, this was ACTUALLY this was everyone else's words, I mean, I wasn't arguing with them on the matter,
BUUUUUT HEEEEEEEEYYY, if you look cute, YOU LOOK CUTE!!! And apparently, I had the adorable fluffy-snow-lady look going on and was embracing WHOLE-HEARTEDLY!!!
So people were just coming up to me all over saying they liked my hat, that I looked cute, they liked my outfit etc...This little old lady was following me at the mall, trailing me as I went into the bathroom, I hear this, excuse me, excuse me, so I turn and see this adorable lil old lady! (No disrespect in calling her a lil old lady, I plan on being an adorable, fluffy old lady some day!) So I turn to her and she's holding up her phone and was like, would you mind if I took your picture? Your outfit is just SOOOOOO CUTE! I really want a picture of it to show people! I was like, SURE, instantly ready to pose, OF COURSE!!! I mean people were just REALLY loving my snow-lady hat, a homeless man asked me for it, I just smiled, I mean IF he didn't have a hat, I woulda given it to him, buuuuuuuut he had a very nice, new and warm looking hat to keep him warm, if I gave him mine, then I wouldn't have one, ANNNNND I wasn't about to trade...Jus sayin! Sooooo I just smiled.
My favorite compliment went to the little old man that complimented me, I was walking by him an he says to me with this thick drawl, "I LIIIIIIIIKE YOUR HAT!" I was like, Oh, THANK YOU! He was like, "A UNICOOOOORN, I liiiiiiiiiiiike that!!!" I was like, Okaaaaaaaaaay that was OFFICIALLY my favorite compliment of the day!!! I mean, everyone was freaking out and complimenting me on my hat because it had snowed and my hat was a snow-man, and this brotha just completely missed the whole point!!! (Or exchanged the carrot nose point for a unicorn-horn's point!) Buuuuuuuuuuuuuut heeeeeeey, I DO LIKE UNICORNS!!! Ahahahahaaaaa!!!

Rewriting Sayings #1

I've decided to start a new little series called "Rewriting Sayings" this is where I simply rewrite popular sayings to say things that are glorifying to God instead of self.
Do more of what makes you happy!!!
do more of what makes GOD Happy!!!
It doesn't really matter what makes you happy, if what makes you happy takes your soul to hell.
"Just so you know, I don't pray for you to be happy."
I told that to one of the girls that used to live with me but had now turned away from God. She looked at me in surprise, because she knew how much I loved her and how I hated seeing her sad. I told her that while I wanted her to be happy, I ultimately wanted to see her saved. What does happiness matter if you happily party your soul into eternal damnation. NOPE, it's NOT all about what make YOU HAPPY, it's all about WHAT MAKES GOD HAPPY...Make God happy, and YOU'LL BE HAPPY!!! (If not here, on the other side, FOREVERRRR!!!)
"I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart." (Psalms 40:8)

Best Awkward Compliment!!!

Sooooooo this goes down as THE BEST AWKWARD compliment of 2019 thus far, it's only March, SOOOOOOOOO it could be outdone by the end of the year!!!
Some Jehovah Witnesses came to our door and even though I don't believe what they believe, I strive to be a witness back and invite them to our church, but it's a struggle, cuz I don't want to lead them on, I finally had to tell a girl after coming to my door for 6 months, well I'm actually not interested, I have a church that I go to faithfully, I just didn't want to be rude because we knock doors as well so I know what it's like to be on the receiving end and ended it with buuuuuut if you ever want to experience the power of the Holy Ghost, just go to 124th street and Shea...weeeeeeellll...she hasn't been back! Buuuuuuuuuuuuuut there was another crew that came back...
ANNNNNNNNNNNNNND these ladies, after I invited them to our church were like, well we have a church right up the street that your welcome to come too, there's a youth group for you too you know. I started laughing when they invited me to join their youth group. They were like, Weeeeellll you look VERY YOUNG!!! Soooooo I asked my favorite question: HOW OLD DO YOU THINK I AM???
The one lady says, OH, I KNOW, (The way she said it was like, I know your NOT a teenager but your still just a kid!) Your 25!!! The other one nodded, YES, 25!!! I GLEEFULLY said, Actually...
Idk what they were more shocked about, MY BEING 35 OR the idea of me speaking in tongues, either way, they haven't been back!!! What do you guys think;
DO I LOOK young enough to be invited to join a group of teenagers youth group???
My answer is NOOOOOOOO!!!
Yes, I was wearing the beanie and hoody in the above pic, buuuuuuuuut I personally don't think I look THAT YOUNG, buuuuuuuuut it's a nice thought to think that SOMEONE did think that!!!
