Dude, we all need to just keep in touch with each other and just encourage each other and dont let anyone walk around with their face looking towards the ground. Im sick of that "stray dog" feeling. Yeah we have been stray dogs to the world but guess what. God has OTHER plans for us. Thats just because Hes about to take us up so high that He has to stomp out any trace of pride in us FIRST. Some of us cant HANDLE it when we have an extra dollar in our pocket. Some of us cant HANDLE it when we have extra time to kill. Some of us cant HANDLE ourselves when we have a boyfriend/girlfriend we really like.

What are you believing God for?

He WILL give it to us, but Hes not going to give us anything we cant handle. So prepare yourself! When you prepare, its like you cut a pattern in your soul that says, Here Lord! The blueprint is there, just lay it on me! When you prepare, you say, Lord, I believe You when You say, "For everyone that asks receiveth." (Matthew 7:8) I believe you Lord, when you say you will not give me a snake when I ask for a fish! (Matthew 7:10) You got to have crazy faith and walk as if you have already GOTTEN what you asked for, because you know what? On Gods time, it has already come to pass!

Cut the pattern in your soul that says to Him, "Here Lord! I am bringing my tithe AND offering because I am FREE from a poverty mentality. You can make me steward over much more now, because I can handle it!!

Cut the pattern in your soul that says, Here Lord! I am working when I supposed to be working and playing when I am supposed to be playing and not vice versa and not playing catch up. You can give me that opportunity to go on vacation now, because I can handle it! You can bless my business now, because Im organized and I can handle it without having to work 17 hour days just to keep up!

I always FEEL like i can handle something, and then I get it, and its not as easy as I thought it was. God ALWAYS knows better! Always! If you dont have something you want really bad that you have prayed and prayed and prayed for.. dont stop praying!! But think about how you can prepare yourself because He IS faithful and He will give it to you! But until you stop and make the effort to prepare yourself, youre gonna keep going round that SAME mountain until you finally just say, You know what, I am going to act like a financially secure person and pay my bills instead of shop for clothes,
im going to act like a woman of character and find out how God wants me to be and then He will let my husband find me,
and Im gonna act like a humble person and stomp out that tendency to have a proud and haughty head because pride goes before a fall and Lord you KNOW I cant handle no more falls!!!Man Im definitely preaching to myself right now!

I just challenge you all to think about what youre believing God for... LOOK in the Bible to find out HOW God wants those people to act.. and then ACT like it. Because we are His children and He is just WAITING for the chance to bless us.. just WAITING! But he aint gonna give us something we cant handle. I challange everyone to just prepare! Prepare for your blessing!!

Because its already done in His time.

I read this the other day and didn't get a chance to comment... you are so right! God has already lined up everything He's going to bless us with, but WE need to show we are ready for everything He plans for us. And of course there will be things we aren't ready for, but our eyes need to be looking to Him at all times.

Isn't it funny how we become such different people when we have, like you said, a little extra cash or things going "right" in our lives, that the One who gave us those gifts is suddenly less of a priority? We become proud as if we somehow deserve those things that our wonderful Father has blessed us with. :)
