Every week either on Sunday or on the first Monday of the week .. I look forward to posting and writing what I felt in my heart that I had learned .. Last week is not that I didn't learned anything .. The class was on "Stewardship" .. in fact it was probable the most important class for me .. see and I will confess that in all things I have not been a good steward with everything in my life .. no .. I am not going to go into details about some of my personal down falls .. at lest not right now but in the future I will tell you when God has finished the good work He has started in my life .. to God be all the Glory and Praise when I do reveal those matters at hand in the moment .. so if anyone wants to tell me how they came about being good stewards in the area they were not .. I would love to listen because maybe it is in the area I have to grow .. "Stewardship 401" it should have been titled .. One thing that is most important and this I know to be true .. that to be a good steward is to give God a tenth of everything you gain .. of all your increase .. even of your time .. 16.8 hours of the week .. take that time to do something for the kingdom of God ..

Do Not Rob God

8 “ Will a man rob God?
Yet you have robbed Me!
But you say,

‘ In what way have we robbed You?’
In tithes and offerings.
9 You are cursed with a curse,
For you have robbed Me,

Even this whole nation.

10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,
That there may be food in My house,
And try Me now in this,”
Says the LORD of hosts,

“ If I will not open for you the windows of heaven
And pour out for you such blessing
That there will not be room enough to receive it.
11 “ And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes,
So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground,
Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,”
Says the LORD of hosts;
12 And all nations will call you blessed,
For you will be a delightful land,”
Says the LORD of hosts.
Malachi 3:8-12

Work in Progress

I know that today, I sit here broke but amaze
what may seem to most, a life in some disarray
but in God, I have put my trust and my faith
that the future is His promise, of hope and grace

Deal is to stand strong and not wander or wave

continue the course, with what ever gift, He gave
You are to serve the Kingdom and forget self worth
for what good are all the riches, of this corrupted earth
if at the end your soul, you can't bond, redeem or trade

For all gold is left to someone else, to use and expend

as they see deem, cause you they know, are no longer concern
So we must live daily, as if it were our last and final stance
asking for and accept forgiveness, while we still have a chance

For God's love Is greatly patient and noticed at first glance

to all who seek from inward, where the soul and spirit dance
find open doors to the heart, the beginning of a heavenly trance

Forms from our weakness, a new mind, body, heart and soul

Re-wiring the mind, re-building the body, healing the heart
and saving our souls, is the only reason, why Jesus departed
Because man sins, we all come daily, short of His glory

that's why till the resurrection, we are a Work in Progress.
