Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“The hand of God is so powerful and awesome, I’m starting to correct many of my mistakes to now notice the best choices, options, decisions, thoughts, and words to say, exercise, share, and type each day; because I want to do better.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Connect

Connect and correct your mistakes, error of thinking, and judgment with God so that He can guide how you talk, think, work, listen, and respond to others with quality, dignity, respect, and thoughtful responses to the needs of others.  Help people and yourself by giving honest truth and moving through life as you should.

Run

Run to the devil with the truth and he will step aside because God is with you!  When he shows up, have your spiritual atomic bombs ready to hand him, as you pull the grenade-like pin, placing the bomb into satan’s mouth.  There is no need to be afraid when you are doing the right things with God’s blessings.

Enjoy

Enjoy how God’s atomic love explodes in the face of evil like lovely fireworks of splendor in the grass, along with your best choices of patience, commitment, quality, and consistency for sharing God’s love everywhere you go and in everything you do.  Let your reputation sing like a symphony of all styles of music, being conducted by the very Hand of God. God can see all of your work, before, during, and after it happens.
Today’s Question
Are you a true instrument of God’s musical body of works or are you a mistake to blot out of Lamb’s Book of Life in Heaven?

Psalm 9 

For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be sung to the tune “Death of the Son.”

I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart;
    I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done.
I will be filled with joy because of you.
    I will sing praises to your name, O Most High.
My enemies retreated;
    they staggered and died when you appeared.
For you have judged in my favor;
    from your throne you have judged with fairness.
You have rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked;
    you have erased their names forever.
The enemy is finished, in endless ruins;
    the cities you uprooted are now forgotten.
But the Lord reigns forever,
    executing judgment from his throne.
He will judge the world with justice
    and rule the nations with fairness.
The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed,
    a refuge in times of trouble.
10 Those who know your name trust in you,
    for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you.
11 Sing praises to the Lord who reigns in Jerusalem.[a]
    Tell the world about his unforgettable deeds.
12 For he who avenges murder cares for the helpless.
    He does not ignore the cries of those who suffer.
13 Lord, have mercy on me.
    See how my enemies torment me.
    Snatch me back from the jaws of death.
14 Save me so I can praise you publicly at Jerusalem’s gates,
    so I can rejoice that you have rescued me.
15 The nations have fallen into the pit they dug for others.
    Their own feet have been caught in the trap they set.
16 The Lord is known for his justice.
    The wicked are trapped by their own deeds. Quiet Interlude[b]
17 The wicked will go down to the grave.[c]
    This is the fate of all the nations who ignore God.
18 But the needy will not be ignored forever;
    the hopes of the poor will not always be crushed.
19 Arise, O Lord!
    Do not let mere mortals defy you!
    Judge the nations!
20 Make them tremble in fear, O Lord.
    Let the nations know they are merely human. Interlude

Love,

Jonathan

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Expose yourself to God and He will reveal Himself to you, simply because you asked and want to know the truth about your Heavenly Father.”  ~ Jon Barnes

DNA

Get your DNA Test from God so He can show you what you look like, how to behave, and the origin of your design and genetics.  Look into the mirror and you will see an image of Him, created, designed, maintained, and sustained by God.  

Master

The Master Creator, Artist, Engineer, Painter, Sculpture, Planner, and King of All the Universe and things to come will give you a history lesson, assessment, and road map of the beginning into the future to get a vast scope of life, His Creations, and soul destinations.  Studying, knowing, and sharing the truth is a simple, consistent, and honest task of perpetual love firing on all cylinders. 

Universal

God’s universal laws, wisdom, and understanding is far beyond our comprehension that the simplicity of order and ease of construction could only come from one source, with an unlimited expanse, space, time, and resources.  The Spirit of God is endless boundless, matchless, and unimaginable.

Psalm 8 

For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be accompanied by a stringed instrument.[a]

Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
    Your glory is higher than the heavens.
You have taught children and infants
    to tell of your strength,[b]
silencing your enemies
    and all who oppose you.
When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—
    the moon and the stars you set in place—
what are mere mortals that you should think about them,
    human beings that you should care for them?[c]
Yet you made them only a little lower than God[d]
    and crowned them[e] with glory and honor.
You gave them charge of everything you made,
    putting all things under their authority—
the flocks and the herds
    and all the wild animals,
the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea,
    and everything that swims the ocean currents.
Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
Love,
 
Jonathan

Customs

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“The devil thought that he could comprehend, crack, and conquer God’s unlimited power and control over Universal Customs, but he and his followers were cast out of Heaven like lightning from the sky.”  ~ Jon Barnes

TSA

God’s TSA department, The Transitioning Soul Association of Judgement, will check your soul passport for approval into the Pearly Gates and in a twinkle of an eye, you will be processed into eternity; Heaven or Hell.

Agents

Fake agents, passports, and alternate routes do not exist in the Kingdom of God, because All options, configurations, and contingencies are made, maintained, or discarded by Him. God is the Author, Gatekeeper, and Master Controller over the destiny, locations, dimensions, and spirit of all things. 

Stars

Every rock, creature, person, thing, star, spect of dirt, dust, sand, soul, and drop of water are numbered, named, and known by God. We cannot build or create worlds, earth, a star, or anything without God’s approval, permission, or knowledge.  God is the true owner, who gives us free space, rent, life, and liberty to love.  Since God’s mind dances around the outer galaxies of the unknown, our limited minds skip like pebbles thrown upon a pond or blink like baby stars twinkling in the sky.

Psalm 7 

A psalm[a] of David, which he sang to the Lord concerning Cush of the tribe of Benjamin.
I come to you for protection, O Lord my God.
    Save me from my persecutors—rescue me!
If you don’t, they will maul me like a lion,
    tearing me to pieces with no one to rescue me.
O Lord my God, if I have done wrong
    or am guilty of injustice,
if I have betrayed a friend
    or plundered my enemy without cause,
then let my enemies capture me.
    Let them trample me into the ground
    and drag my honor in the dust. Interlude
Arise, O Lord, in anger!
    Stand up against the fury of my enemies!
    Wake up, my God, and bring justice!
Gather the nations before you.
    Rule over them from on high.
    The Lord judges the nations.
Declare me righteous, O Lord,
    for I am innocent, O Most High!
End the evil of those who are wicked,
    and defend the righteous.
For you look deep within the mind and heart,
    O righteous God.
10 
God is my shield,
    saving those whose hearts are true and right.
11 
God is an honest judge.
    He is angry with the wicked every day.
12 
If a person does not repent,
    God[b] will sharpen his sword;
    he will bend and string his bow.
13 
He will prepare his deadly weapons
    and shoot his flaming arrows.
14 
The wicked conceive evil;
    they are pregnant with trouble
    and give birth to lies.
15 
They dig a deep pit to trap others,
    then fall into it themselves.
16 
The trouble they make for others backfires on them.
    The violence they plan falls on their own heads.
17 
I will thank the Lord because he is just;
    I will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.
 
Love,
 
Jonathan

Custom

antique-1838324_1920.jpg
Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“A custom tailored shirt fits like no other shirt, because it was designed and measured specifically for you, like God designs each of His Children, as a perfect gift.”  ~ Jon Barnes

My Wife

My wife gave me a suit that is custom made from Turkey and the quality is fit for a King, just like God made my wife, the perfect fit as My Queen!  It is a blessing to have your own suit fit your body, personality, imagination, preference, and style.  Maintain and improve yourself so that your relationships with God and people retain and continually improve the value of their custom fit with love.

Amazingly

Behold, honor, cherish, respect, and love your perfect, custom gift from God because your spouse was amazingly tailored just for you.  Keep this gift from God in your mind and heart and don’t abuse your authority and good standing. Going into marriage and growing with your loved one is another miracle that many never recognize in their lives!

Beautiful

It is a beautiful thing to marry your soul mate that God has created just for you.  It is a double blessing when both of you love God as you love each other.  It is a tough sale when both spouses didn’t get this memo. Yet, our choices, miracles, and beauty in life reflect our love for Christ and respect for the commandments we all must use in the pursuit of our nature of a beautiful life in God.
Today’s Question
Is it obvious when you make the best decisions and choices, as you follow God in His Custom Ways?

Psalm 6

For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be accompanied by an eight-stringed instrument.[a]
O Lord, don’t rebuke me in your anger
    or discipline me in your rage.
Have compassion on me, Lord, for I am weak.
    Heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony.
I am sick at heart.
    How long, O Lord, until you restore me?
Return, O Lord, and rescue me.
    Save me because of your unfailing love.
For the dead do not remember you.
    Who can praise you from the grave?[b]
I am worn out from sobbing.
    All night I flood my bed with weeping,
    drenching it with my tears.
My vision is blurred by grief;
    my eyes are worn out because of all my enemies.
Go away, all you who do evil,
    for the Lord has heard my weeping.
The Lord has heard my plea;
    the Lord will answer my prayer.
10 
May all my enemies be disgraced and terrified.
    May they suddenly turn back in shame.

Love,

Jonathan

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“After you have committed to exercising each day, you can enjoy the new muscle mass that is Spiritually created by faith in your workouts, choices, goals, and studies with God.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Show

When you show up each day to embrace the quality time with God, your heart will beat to His drum and exercising routines that are designed by the Master of All Things to strengthen, sustain, and encourage your physical and spiritual needs.  He is The Best Trainer to keep you focused and on task!  Ask God to show you your personalized schedule and goals for your life, mind, body, heart, and purpose.  Be Patient!

Do 

Do, practice, and share the new skills God teaches you after you have mastered the new methods.  You will get plenty of practice and test to show your proficiency.  Improvement is a daily, ongoing task, as God knows and watches your every move, thought, and assignment.  However, you can not give something that you do not have or learned.  Possess and bless others with what God has taught you.
  

Feel

Notice how much better you feel and how much more clean and clear your life becomes, when you obey God, no matter what your job functions are.  Your place in God’s plan is great with constant effort.  When you have worked to your potential, God honors your honest and steady commitment to your faith, improvement, love, and ability to change.

After you study and exercise with God each day, can you see the improvements and changes in your life, like others can?

Psalm 5

For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be accompanied by the flute.
O Lord, hear me as I pray;
    pay attention to my groaning.
Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God,
    for I pray to no one but you.
Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord.
    Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly.
O God, you take no pleasure in wickedness;
    you cannot tolerate the sins of the wicked.
Therefore, the proud may not stand in your presence,
    for you hate all who do evil.
You will destroy those who tell lies.
    The Lord detests murderers and deceivers.
Because of your unfailing love, I can enter your house;
    I will worship at your Temple with deepest awe.
Lead me in the right path, O Lord,
    or my enemies will conquer me.
Make your way plain for me to follow.
My enemies cannot speak a truthful word.
    Their deepest desire is to destroy others.
Their talk is foul, like the stench from an open grave.
    Their tongues are filled with flattery.[a]
10 
O God, declare them guilty.
    Let them be caught in their own traps.
Drive them away because of their many sins,
    for they have rebelled against you.
11 
But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;
    let them sing joyful praises forever.
Spread your protection over them,
    that all who love your name may be filled with joy.
12 
For you bless the godly, O Lord;
    you surround them with your shield of love.
 
Love,
 
Jonathan

Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Just because you have seen, heard, experienced, read, worked or studied something once does not give you a clear understanding of how love operates and functions.” ~ Jon Barnes

Process

Tough answers require diligence, patience, kindness, focus, and time to process the right solutions of richness and truth. Richness in faith, love, charity, and honesty are not driven by the dollar or evil motives.  The value of God’s truth is priceless, being full of tests, lessons, and wisdom to build faith, character, and integrity with the journey of righteousness in the process. Often times, we are our worst enemies!!! Enjoy the battle that the process of love brings and recognize that others will see and know your flaws. 

Functions

The functions we choose to operate our daily lives are like the exercises we choose to do to keep our physical bodies in shape.  Many of us do not exercise at all but expect to be spiritually fit.  Spiritually, we probably look like we do physically and we need to focus on our problem areas of doing nothing to improve our standings with God and our physical nature.  Also, our good physical nature can make us lazy in developing our spiritual nature as well.

Results

Mature people get real results because of their honesty with themselves and their love for God, which destroys anything that is not from the fruit of God’s Spirit.  As we all process God’s Great Spiritual Information, the truth is obvious and simple on so many levels.  As a result, your personal results are a reflection upon that truth and not your imagination.  Stop imagining that you are always correct.  If there is something wrong, then look at yourself, your habits, and not God or others for your lack of understanding, character, and patience for wisdom!
Today’s Question
Why are you always complaining about other people and you and not doing the work God wants you to do in love and by faith?

Psalm 3 

Psalm 3

A psalm of David, regarding the time David fled from his son Absalom.

Lord, I have so many enemies;
    so many are against me.
So many are saying,
    “God will never rescue him!” Interlude[a]
But you, O Lord, are a shield around me;
    you are my glory, the one who holds my head high.
I cried out to the Lord,
    and he answered me from his holy mountain. Interlude
I lay down and slept,
    yet I woke up in safety,
    for the Lord was watching over me.
I am not afraid of ten thousand enemies
    who surround me on every side.
Arise, O Lord!
    Rescue me, my God!
Slap all my enemies in the face!
    Shatter the teeth of the wicked!
Victory comes from you, O Lord.
    May you bless your people. Interlude
Love,
 
Jonathan

Parting

banana-2181470_1920Hi Peeps,
Today’s Quote
“Parting of ways from negative people to pursue your own life is a sign of maturity to follow God’s Will, Ways, and Might.”  ~  Jon Barnes

Stand

Only you can make the choices that stand for something positive in your life. So be bold to look, learn, grow, and work for God to do those things that are right.  Taking a stand is an isolated choice of daily decision connected together for a lifetime. In all that you do, understand God’s clues, because you’ll have yours and I’ll have mine.

Search

Search for the missing puzzles of love, joy, liberty, and the freedom to choose from the options you are given.   God’s Ways are for you to give and share; never to lose. The Good in life will seek you out, so always find yourself doing good that finds you.  Wonderful things will continue to flow your way, as this fact should always be understood and expected.

Quit

After you have put in an amount of quality work into following your heart and dreams,  
there comes a point in life and time that you’ll understand what it all means.  The clues you get from taking a stand for God becomes more clear each and every day.  Before long you realize that this is who you are and you will not quite on God Today!
Today’s Question
Did you know that Today is every day with God or did you part ways to sing and walk with someone else?

Psalm 1 

Oh, the joys of those who do not
    follow the advice of the wicked,
    or stand around with sinners,
    or join in with mockers.
But they delight in the law of the Lord,
    meditating on it day and night.
They are like trees planted along the riverbank,
    bearing fruit each season.
Their leaves never wither,
    and they prosper in all they do.
But not the wicked!
    They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind.
They will be condemned at the time of judgment.
    Sinners will have no place among the godly.
For the Lord watches over the path of the godly,
    but the path of the wicked leads to destruction.

Love,

Jonathan
