Why is God Pissed at Me, He Is Not

“Although God loves us unconditionally, He does get angry at sin, wickedness, and evil. But He is not an angry God. God hates the sin, but He loves sinners! He will never approve of sin in your life, but He always loves you and wants to work with you to make progress in living a holy life in Christ.” — Joyce Meyer

When I started seeking God’s help in my life, I would think because things were not happening he was pissed at me. I was somehow not deserving of God’s love. Believing that God correct at me for my sins.

God does not punish you. Where you need to seek God’s word is in all aspects of your life. Whether you watch YouTube video’s, read your bible, or attend Church. What I lacked was education about God’s word. When I spoke to people in my church saying God is so pissed with me. The first answers always “No Honey he is not pissed at you.”

hope, prayer, pray

 What I have come to learn is that is the enemy wanting me to have no faith that God cares about me. He will deceive your mind into thinking you are not worthy of God’s forgiveness. Not true under any circumstance.

Having this knowledge up front would have saved me a lot of misery. Knowing that the enemy seeks to cloud your judgment. You may have to go through some things, but God is with you. He has not forsaken you; he hears every word you utter.

In the beginning, for you think about it this way. If you were going to change something about yourself, let’s say you want an MBA from college. You must take some classes, have training, study and pass tests for you to earn your MBA. Deserved gifts don’t come to you without working towards that goal.

God cannot change you overnight. You didn’t get into a mess overnight, and you’re not going to change overnight.

You may think if things don’t change right now my life is about to blow up. Fear of loss will cloud your good judgment. Hard for me to understand, how could God let my life fall apart? So far, he has not, my financial and family life is still in some turmoil. What I have come to believe in God in his good time will reveal to me my destiny. Knowing in my heart his promises when delivered to me will be more than I could have ever asked of God.

Each day is a new blessing of some sort. I have not lost anything; the world has not come to an end. So, settling down and trusting God has brought peace in my head. The problems are still here, but they’re not insurmountable in my mind anymore. God, gives me what I can handle every day.

Don’t freak-out over a life event. Most things are not that big a deal, we just in our mind make it so. If, however, you were just handed some terrible news I do understand we all have a moment with that. God will carry us through the darkest moments. Find some pastoral care. Seek out professional care, lots of fantastic Pastoral counseling services available.

When an event comes up in our lives, rest easy it’s not God’s doing. For a long time, I thought God was punishing me anytime something terrible happened. The enemy would love for you to subscribe to this thought. He wants us to suffer! You will if you don’t see yourself, healthy, happy, joyful and in God’s loving arms.

Don’t let the enemy consume your life. I did, and it put me in very dark places with myself. Had to fight my way out. It’s not an easy battle when the enemy thinks you might get saved to a new life. He will challenge you to the death if necessary. You have free will so that statement is horrifying indeed.

I’m not stronger or weaker than anyone reading this. We all suffer from the pain. No, it’s not easy and hurts like hell. What I can tell you is that if you fight through whatever it is, you suffer from at this moment. You will find peace. Believing that God is working behind the scenes to heal your life. Faith is not free you have to fight for it. Even when you don’t think you can make one more step, take the damn step it’s your turn to WIN!

If you don’t believe in God yet then fake it til you make it, you will come to find peace. DO NOT LOSE this battle. You will feel something if you keep going. I cannot emphasize this enough. Your mind will play tricks to the point of disaster. There is NO disaster if you believe. How many stories have you heard where people were healed from Cancer, addiction, heart failure or after years of trying a woman got pregnant and blessed with a beautiful child. We’re all miracles if we genuinely believe we are.

My own life, God, brought me back from the brink of disaster. Is it smooth sailing every day of course not? Was it without work on my part heck no. It took real stamina to stay in the fight, but I did, and you can too. Do NOT sell yourself short as I once did. God is not pissed at you for your past. Your past does not define who you could be today if you chose to.

Each day you breathe air is a good day. If that is all you can be grateful for them, God will take it. All God asks of you is unwavering faith in him. Will you slip and fall, absolutely you will. Is God going to punish you for it NO? Go to him and confess yourself and you will find forgiveness from God through confession. The cool part is you will build strength, so you don’t fall again doing the same thing. That is growth!

Let me burst another bubble for you. God is not impressed with your wealth, status or lack thereof. If you truly want what God has all that is necessary for you is a belief in God. Become the person you dreamed of being; it’s in your grasp if you bring it to God.

I struggled with this for so long. As humans, we’ve been conditioned to be suspect of things we cannot see. What I have come to learn besides God is not pissed at me for my past. If I look closely enough, God works miracles in my life every day. He puts things in front of me that if my heart is receptive, I will look up and tell him to show off.

Think You Can and You Will

Changing your mindset from “I can’t do that” to “I can.” Nothing is impossible if you truly set your mind to it. Change will come if your faith in what you endeavor is truly unwavering. Life has conditioned us to doubt our ability.

We’ve been indoctrinated into the world of “oh I can’t do that” or those around us tell us we can’t. When our peers or family say “oh don’t try that you don’t have this or that” to even complete the work. Our minds are garbage dumps for the enemy. If you truly believe you can you can. If you truly believe you cannot, well you’re right.

Stereotypes get broken everyday. People achieve amazing things because they believe they can. Nothing or no man can stop you from reaching that which you desire. The family may tell you don’t try. Usually that comes from a place where they don’t want to see you get hurt.spiritual, prayer

Perhaps in your life, you have not achieved much. Therefore, folks around you don’t think you have what it takes to do the project you intend. Don’t listen to naysayers even if they’re family. Listen to what is coming from your heart. If you have a burning to do something, then get off your butt and get going.

Let me warn you now. Be prepared to get bombarded with doubt, fear and an overwhelming will rush over you. This is normal. Remember, we all are conditioned with doubt and fear. Those are not realities you have to subscribe too. Belief, unwavering faith that you can achieve what you are working towards will overcome doubt. It takes real work but you can do it when you worth through times of doubt.

Successful people will tell you the reason they win. They’re willing to take one more step than you are to win. Losing is not an option. Fear, doubt, and roadblocks are all bumps in the road. Improvise, adapt and overcome! Moreover, don’t quit!

Stand your ground in faith. Learn to develop a mindset of positive thoughts. Do the work before you and believe in your passion. It may be a title fight to get what you desire, but imagine what life change will come if you maintain your faith.

The Power of Your Words

The current book I’m working on discusses the power of our words. Words can express love or cut deep into our heart. Remember the first time you told someone you loved them? Do you remember the first time you said something stupid and hurt someone?

Being conscious of what words we use to ourselves or those around us will make all the difference in the world our life experience. If we speak negatively to ourselves most likely depression, self-loathing will consume life. The sad part is over the years we become conditioned to negative words.

What I explore is the human experience of “nothing works in my life” I simply don’t have what it takes. You have given up hope because you see no hope. Blinded by years of indoctrination to feeding your mind with garbage the enemy wants you to believe.

Words Have Power Choose Wisely

Good news is that can change. I can already hear some of you saying this is BS. NO, when you get kicked square in the gut time after time. Sorry, but its time to cowboy-up as they say. None of what I’m talking about now or what I’m finishing in my book is easy. If it were, we would all have rainbows flying out of our butt’s!

Don’t you get angry or discouraged and quit on my now! It was and still is very hard for me on days to overcome my head. It gets better I promise you that with practice and sweat it does. Everyone has seen world-class athletes perform. They don’t walk out and compete at that level without a few bumps and bruises along the way. The change will take time, and you will have difficulties.

Candy coating it won’t make change occur. You have to dig in tell the enemy his fifteen minutes is over and take back your life. When you begin to change he will come at you hard attacking all the weaknesses in you he can find. Stronger we are in the lord. Call to prayer the lord. If you need to say a thousand times “I am strong in the lord” do it! Fight as you’ve never fought before.

Foremost, get some help. Get into a good bible based church. Find somewhere that you can speak to folks that are strong in the lord. They will minister to your hope and strength in the word of God. Don’t second guess me right now. Don’t over think that some bible thumper has no clue what I’m going on in my head. YES, they do! You don’t have to run down the aisle with a handful of serpents screaming Jesus save me.

What you will learn by the grace of God from Christians that simply walk with Christ first in their lives, how to find peace. How to smile again. How to laugh again. How to love again. How to live in your soul and NOT your head.

  • Positive Self Talk
  • Positive Affirmation
  • Listen to your Heart

Get negative Christian stereotypes out of your brain. For years I turned my back on any spiritual growth in my own life. When you live in your heart and not in your head, life will open like a beautiful flower. Think about this for a minute. Your life is in turmoil allow yourself to cast your cares to God in prayer with an open heart and mind. NO, Mr. Skeptical you can’t just say God pay my rent, sit on your ass and the rent gets paid. What you can do is pray to God that your problems are too big for you to handle alone and you’re grateful that he has made a way where you see no way.

You still have to go to work. Do things that are in front of you. Learn not to impose your will. When you can believe the outcome BEFORE you receive the blessing hang on God is about to change your life. It’s hard it takes work, sweat and yes you may even cry. God does not just come along and fix stuff for free. The price for a happy life is FAITH. He has already given it to you. Don’t ask for what you already have from him, thank him for the blessings yet to come as though you have them TODAY. Huge power in what I am telling you to try. What have you got to lose?

Stay Strong in Faith

What a journey it is when you give your life to a spiritual existence. Deciding that you will live your life from your soul and not your head. That means to me that I allow things to happen on God’s terms, allowing the universe to open up my destiny as it should. We, of course, have to do the work, but we must allow our destiny to be revealed to us.

For me this has been a struggle. Imposing my will before God’s will is fear. It’s hard to release your faith, I struggle with it everyday. It does get easier everyday. It does not mean that you don’t look for signs look for blessings everyday that give you clarity along life’s path.

In this moment I am having issues allowing God to work in my life. I run scenario one after another in my head. This is not trusting God to reveal to me the answer to this worry. What I am praying for is clarity in God’s good time. If I’m ever going to have peace in my life no matter how much it hurts right now. I have to let go in faith.

Stopped working on this and boom I started stressing over the issue I was just speaking about. Faith can be hard to follow when all our lives we’ve imposed our own will over our life. If your life is out of balance and in a mess, there is a reason. Right there with you. So it stands to reason that if I want real change, I have to be willing to change. So faith I am standing firm!

If God’s promises are real and they are! On the other side of this is happiness that will far and away be greater than the despair I feel. I miss someone very much, but I have to let God work through both our lives to restore them. Then and only then will destiny reveal itself.

If you struggle today with faith, then let’s make a pack for today. God, we release our loyalty to you, so that you can do right work in our lives!

Stay strong friends!!!

faith, god, no fear

Stand Up Under Attack

Last night I had an amazing revelation while watching a video by TD Jakes. How to fight and win spiritual battles. Stand Up and Fight!

For weeks the attacks, and trials the enemy has put before me I didn’t understand. The message I heard was life-changing for me. “Sometimes the enemy knows us better than we know ourselves.” His attack comes because he knows what is coming for us. He sees before we see the blessing that we’re about to receive. So his attack is planned so we don’t see it coming.

An attack that by design will destroy you IF YOU ALLOW IT TO. You have the strength to release it to God through faith. If you go toe-to-toe with the enemy, you will lose! If you think you can figure it out in your head, you will lose. I tried, and for my effort, I have been on the brink of breaking several times. The pain I have put myself through is debilitating.

You can fight not to allow your thoughts to wonder; you can fight for strength to move forward. What you can’t do is fight the enemy on his ground. That is God’s domain. We all can rebuke, bind and cast the enemy back to hell. Let the main event be Gods fight. If we can do this together, we will win.img_1540

He is attacking you hard because of the enemy fears who you will become in Christ. He won’t go without a fight. The good news it’s not your fight, you don’t have to step into the ring ever. Faith will be your weapon. I can hear so many of you screaming “I can’t take this anymore, faith, God put me here” no friends he did not. I thought that too.

The enemy would love for us to believe that. Then his stronghold on our faith is clamped hard. Don’t do this to yourself. Your weapon to fight is so easy it’s faith. Remember the harder you have to fight to hold onto your faith the greater your blessing on the other side of this trial. It is what it is you have to believe. Stop trying to understand it; the enemy will confuse you to the point of doubt.

Attacks will come from your mind, depression, people around you, beating you down. Don’t fear this. Embrace it that God does not make mistakes, nor does he put these things in your path. If you through your undying faith stand up and praise God and tell the enemy, God is in my soul, and we cast you back to hell you are not welcome here. Know in your heart that God is with you. That through this gut-wrenching trial the person who survives it will be might in this land. YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD, fear nothing! Cast out all doubt and fear.

 Be sure the enemy will come back. The next time he does your faith is rock solid. The attacks come because the enemy fears who you’re becoming. We’re stronger than he is through Christ.

My messages are always a pathway of hope. I am not a theologian or a therapist, but a man just like you that want’s something more from his life. Sick and tired of being sick and tired! Through the trials, I face the attacks on me if I can find ways to combat, get through to a new life. I want to share that information with anyone who will listen. In hopes that you don’t reach the same dark depths I have. Sometimes this message is a hope that it saves your life.

What I am sharing saved mine! I am grateful that the internet filled with good people’s messages of hope. It’s not hard to find, it’s not hard to follow if you open your heart.
