Humility in Prayer

“Jesus taught this parable to those who were convinced they were morally upright and those who trusted in their own virtue yet looked down on others with disgust: “Once there were two men who went into the temple to pray. One was a proud religious leader, the other a despised tax collector.

The religious leader stood apart from the others and prayed, ‘How I thank you, O God, that I’m not wicked like everyone else. They’re cheaters, swindlers, and crooks—like that tax collector over there. God, you know that I never cheat or commit adultery; I fast from food twice a week and I give you a tenth of all I make.’

“The tax collector stood off alone in the corner, away from the Holy Place, and covered his face in his hands, feeling that he was unworthy to even look up to God. Beating his breast, he sobbed with brokenness and tears saying, ‘God, please, in your mercy and because of the blood sacrifice, forgive me, for I am nothing but the most miserable of all sinners!’(Amen)

“Which one of them left for home that day made right with God?
It was the humble tax collector and not the religious leader!
For everyone who praises himself will one day be humiliated before all, and everyone who humbles himself will one day be lifted up and honored before all.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭18:9-14‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Thank you, Papa that I can some to You with my dirty hands, heart and mind to be cleansed! Thank you that you don’t look down with contempt but with mercy and grace through my Lord and Savior Jesus!

Jesus thank you, for being my sacrifice, for once and for all!

In Jesus Mighty Name!

Amen

Under Construction

I’m not where I want to be

but I’m not where I was

I am Under Construction!

I will stay under construction,

till the day God calls me home.

So pardon me,

if you don’t like

what God is doing in me….

He never said being,

Under Construction

Would be easy or clean!

It’s Messy!

Yes, there will be times, when it is easy!

Remember this,

God is transforming me & you into the image of His son,

Jesus.

Share A Dream from May 4-5, 2009

I want to share a dream I had 10 years ago, around May 5, 2009.

In the Dream my name was called 3 times; “Tabby, come here please, Tabby, come here please, Tabby, come here please.”

When I got there, a white door was open and the whole house inside & out was white. At the Door was Michael Jackson. He said to me, “finally you got here”. I laugh a little and said I was sleeping ( the dream happened after midnight).

We sat down, chitchat for awhile.

Then Michael gets down on his knees and he says will you forgive me and starts to list all his wrongs. I stop him and tell him he is asking forgiveness to the wrong person, you need to ask forgiveness to God & Jesus.

(Back story on this, since I was little, I’ve had repeated dreams were Michael & I was talking about God & Jesus and reading his bible. In one dream I remember where he was reading out of the Bible. He reads, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god. John 1:1” I told him Jesus was God not a god.)

He then repents and ask forgiveness(as he is doing this his head is in my lap crying his heart out) and want Jesus in his life. After this I told him he needed to be baptized.
He told me that I could do this, which I interjected because I wasn’t a pastor. Michael tells me, yes I was.
So we go upstairs and I fill up a garden tub full of water. He get in & I baptized him in the name and of the Father God, Jesus & Holy Spirit.

I told him now you have to tell, he calls his brother Marlon first, then Tito and he would tell the others later in the day.

I have share this with few family members & friends, they all stated, he received Salvation that night. May 5, 2009
He would go on the pass way on June 25, 2009

I would love your thoughts on this But Don’t be rude or nasty!

I’m NOT Perfect!

I’m not perfect
Nor do I try to be.

I try to do things that will help others
But sometimes,
people think I’m trying to be perfect.

I’m a follower of Jesus
I make mistakes
I will say the wrong thing,
I don’t intend too
I’m only human,
just like everyone else in this world.

For some reason,
Which I don’t understand
Why people, think that being a Christian…
I’m supposed to have it all together,
Really…….!

I love how those that don’t believe in Jesus
And the ones who do believe in Jesus
Love to point out my mistakes
But they don’t see the billboard in their own face.

When I decided to put my faith & trust in Jesus,
as my Lord & Savior.
It started, My walk with Jesus,
It’s a journey.

Which means I am being transformed into Jesus daily.
My journey means allowing God to transform me.
This is a continuous process.
It can be messy & painful
To be truthful!

The cool thing and what I love the most is
God knows all,
He chose me,
He forgave me
He is with me,
He loves me, no matter what
He is for me
I’m His daughter!!!
