The Kind of Young Lady

The kind of young lady I want my for my son,

Shines like the sun, a special someone,

A young lady who is different, stands out from the crowd,

Of herself she is proud – not quiet nor loud,

She is proud of herself, but pride is not found,

Her beauty is meekness, her heart and mind sound,

Young lady are you there? Show yourself strong,

Be a guide for my son, keep him from wrong,

The kind of young lady who pushes (you) for better,

Who wants to spend time with you and your family – everyone together!

No sneak, covert meet-ups to do things in secret,

Does a girl like this live? Yes, I believe it!

The kind of young lady who becomes part of the fam,

Who is like a daughter to me, now that would be grand!

The kind of young lady who loves herself perfect,

Who knows she is priceless, who doesn’t get nervous,

The kind of young lady who’s mind is set on the future,

Who thinks long-term, who knows the Supreme Ruler!

The kind of young lady who is smart & can teach,

Who’s humble enough to be teachable, one you can reach!

With the words that you speak, she listens so well!

This is the young lady for you, her last name should be Bell!

This is the girl for you son, I felt led to stress,

A young lady like this, for you, would be best.

Love,

Dad

It’s You, But It’s Still New Pt. 1

Your purpose is you. It is made up of the good works which have been foreordained in eternity past and reserved in Heaven for you to do, released (graced) on you at the time appointed by Father through the Spirit of Christ. Now, if that’s not enough, the good works set aside for you and released in you actually formulate into a person – yup you guessed right – Jesus Christ. That alone just blew (and will continually blow) my mind, so with that I’m going to stop short of my original content for this post and meditate on that for the rest of day. Actually, for the rest of my life. Have a blessed and beautiful day!

He Seen the Spirit‼️

True and righteous living is living from the inside out.

I took my daughter out for lunch the other day. When our food came out we blessed it by praying for the ones who prepared it and for the food itself. This is our custom. As we were finishing up and getting ready to leave, the owner of the store (his name is Mel) walked over to me and said, “When you were praying I seen the Spirit. I seen Him! I felt His presence!”

I almost broke down and cried. As a disciple of Jesus the Messiah, a beloved son of the Father of mercies (2 Corinth 1:3), and a man renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created Him (Col. 3:10) by the Holy Spirit, I know I AM blessed me with His Spirit. There is no doubt. However, at that particular moment when Mel uttered those words, I was touched (again) in a special way. I suppose it’s like Jesus after He was baptized and heard the Father’s voice from the excellent glory. Before the Father spoke, before the dove descended, before He was immersed, before He even came to John – He knew the Father loved Him. He knew who He was. He knew He was born of the Spirit, filled with the Spirit, even without measure, but it’s still something about knowing it again – the Spirit descending and remaining on Him and the Father also backing up the Spirit by testifying, affirming, and confirming Jesus with the words, “This is my Son, whom I love! I am well pleased with Him!” Wow!

The Love and support of the Father strengthens you. Reassures you. Solidifies you. Validates you. Settles you. It’s one thing for you to personally know something. It’s another for the Father to confirm what you know and who you know to another person or people and they testify of it!

Daddy God, I love you and worship you today and every day. Thank you for the unspeakable gift of your Son in all forms – by body and by Spirit! Thank you for confirming and glorifying me again and again. Everything is for your glory. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with your spirit. Amen.

Abba’s Love: His Best, His Best

The LORD God loves you for you. He loves you because you are His – His creation, His handiwork, His masterpiece.

He put His heart and soul into creating you – His entire being!! How do you know that Minister Benjamin? I’m glad you asked. Before He made man He said let “us” make man in “our” image, after “our” likeness. Daddy God employed the Son and the Holy Spirit too, so therefore, He used the whole or entirety of His being!! He used everything (everyone) He has to form and fashion you! When He made you He gave you His all! Isn’t that Love? Give Him your all today and everyday! Surrender your entire being‼️

Love gives up everything. Love doesn’t hold back. Love gave man – the crown of His creation, His best – His best. Selah.

Love trusts! The only time you don’t trust, which is fear, is if you have been corrupted, resulting in a distorted view of Love! But perfect Love casts out fear! (1 John 4:18) Oh my goodness; the reason why the LORD entrusted Adam with His creation was because He loved him, not because He thought or knew Adam was going to manage it well!! As a matter of truth, He knew he was going to mess up and mismanage everything, but He gave it to him anyway. Why? Because that’s what you do when love someone perfectly without fear!

Guess what? He never changes. The same thing He did when He created the first Adam is the same thing He did when He recreated the last Adam: sacrificed His best – His first begotten and unique Son – for His best – you, me, and every human being on this planet. Because when you truly love you give (up) your best, and your best is yourself!

True Success

I’m convinced: the main ingredient of true success is self-control.

I had an insightful conversation with an owner of a shoe repair store – not exactly the type of business/entity one would glean true success from. We were talking about the effects of the pandemic on businesses, so I asked him how he was able to stay open despite other businesses in and out of his industry being forced to shut down.

“During the years of plenty I saved instead of spent.”

His answer struck me, illuminating my soul as it were. Do you know how hard it is to NOT spend money when you’re making A LOT of it? On second thought, I don’t know what that’s like 😂. I suspect it wouldn’t be easy. It’s not a discipline or an ability a large percentage of people have. I found out this man had forfeited temporary pleasures and thrills – buying cars, homes, etc., for something of greater, more lasting value: sustainability. His desire wasn’t just to open a business and make money. His desire was to build something sustainable, that could stand the test of time and adversity.

If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small (Prov. 24:10). The strength is self-control – the ability to not only remain calm in times of challenge, but also in times of success or plenty. The store owner did not let success get to his head. He remained wise and even-tempered throughout, resulting in a clear mind to make wise choices. Self-control, the key ingredient!

Deepening Relationship: Real Love ❤️

REAL LOVE takes responsibility – accepts the challenge, task, or mission – to do what’s necessary – what MUST be done.

I was talking to my son the other day about some negative thoughts (lies) he has allowed to resurface in his mind. He’s been the target of teasing, bullying, and rejection from peers in the past, and the trauma from those experiences had resulted in low self-esteem, a confused identity, and hopelessness – believing the lies you’re not good enough and no one cares. Fast forward a little: the Grace of GOD appeared to me, revolutionized my life, freeing me from the very same powers of lies and limiting beliefs that have plagued my son! I am now validated and equipped to help him by the mercies of GOD, so in a very real way I was saved to save my son! We have been won over by the Lord’s love to win people over by the Lord’s love – the essence of the gospel!

In the midst of me ministering to him and our relationship getting better and stronger in the passage of time, those old thoughts, lies, and feelings of hopelessness began to creep and seep back into my son’s mind. I noticed something had been bothering him for a few days, so the Lord, in His Grace, had me take him out on a beautiful spring day to spend time together. I thought I was just taking him out to workout with me, but the Lord had other thoughts. Aren’t you glad His thoughts are higher than ours? (Isa. 55:9) LORD you are so great! O the depths of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of GOD! His judgments unsearchable! His ways past finding out! (Rom. 11:33)

After our workout, we sat on a park bench and began to talk – the mental and spiritual portion of our bonding! As I was comforting and encouraging him with the gospel, the Lord Jesus reminded me of the vision He showed me, the purpose He called me to, the need He summoned me to meet: “Ben! Ben! (This is) REAL LOVE!”

Real Love sees a person or people in desperate need and accepts the responsibility to help them by giving yourself. Because when you really care and when you truly love somebody, you give up (sacrifice) yourself – your life and way of life – for them. Is not this the mission and love of Jesus? In that very moment, at the very time with my son, that is exactly what I did, what I was doing, and what I will continue do. Daddy GOD, King Jesus, By Holy Spirit, thank you! Eternally grateful with eternity in mind. In Jesus name.
