Can You Stand to be Blessed!

Often times we as Christians always want to be blessed above what we can handle. Please understand that God is not crazy and he will not bless you above what you can handle. When it comes to the things of God you don’t get what you study for, you don’t even get what you think you deserve, you only get what you can handle and manage. So if you have been asking God to take you to a certain level in your life and you haven’t received it yet then quit praying and asking God to take you higher, just simply ask him to help you manage and master your life on your current level. Let me break it down for you! If you are already having money issues now, living from check to check, plus you are not tithing, understand that God will not bless you with money if you can’t handle the little that you have. The Bible says that if you are faithful over the few I will make you ruler over the many. So until you learn how to manage things on your present level promotion will never come your way. The bible says that God will not put more on you than you can bare, most people think that’s only talking about heartache, but it is also talking about blessings as well, he will not bless you above what you can handle. What is meant for a blessing if it is mishandled could become a burden or a curse. Why would God bless you with another child if you are barely taking care of the one that you have? Why would he promote you on your job if you are barely handling your current workload? Why would he bless you with more money only knowing that you will create more debt and you will dig yourself into a deeper hole? God will not continue to add to a unfruitful lifestyle that you are already in, and continue to ask for more and more Help? So the question is can you stand to be blessed? Can you stand for God to take you Higher? Are you doing what it takes at your current level for God to be able to trust you with more? The truth is that devil is not blocking your blessings, you are blocking your own blessing by not being a good steward over what you already have. Even grandma told us as a child to waste not, want not! So if you are wasting the things that God has provided for you, how do you ever expect for God to take you to the next level?

A Hindsight Perspective

Mind travelin’, wrapped in my memories
Love… you started off as a friend to me
Curiosity killed my innocence with endless possibilities
Happily married with children now
God blessed a brotha with a Queen
Till death do us part so going through i wouldn’t change a thing
Love I’m just sittin’ here thinkin’ about what we used to be, ha…
Flashing back brings a smile to my face…
Of memories that can’t be replaced nor do I want to erase, ha…
Including the mistakes… it’s inevitable
The ebbs and flows of love and hate
What we thought was real
Turned out to be food without soul
A cold dinner plate
A pileup on the interstate
Our clash only proved that real love lust cannot duplicate
Genuine actions with pseudo feelings caused us to hesitate
Words we said we thought we meant, can’t take ’em back
Like a child learning to walk, fear and doubt set in
Those steps we weren’t ready to take, so we separate
On the simplest of things we struggle to concentrate
Thinking we’re the only one going through
When folks around the globe can relate
Going through heartbreak
Is the curriculum for love life chooses to educate
The high we felt is how life demonstrates
Our insecure-and-vulnerabilities
From loneliness the high is an escape
A heart takes a beating and needs to be seasoned
Tried and tested before it finds a happy place
That could mean it has to wait on the perfect mate
Going through the same process before it can save the date
And walk down the isle to mama’s baby
Or take the hand of daddy’s precious child
Swear and recite some vows
Some meet the one early, others it takes a while
Some get it right the first time, others go through trials
Some cherish what they have
Others get a new every two like a mo-bile
Device and roll the dice, banking they can get it right
When they get older and settle down
Some are swept, caught off guard
Some are scarred, forever wild
Some like to get around
Others don’t play that like homie the clown
Love we go back like polaroids
We’re tight like daps and pounds
But you also had a brotha runnin’ on fumes
Chasing you all over town
Gave me the bidness like a toon
With rain from a personal cloud
Had to learn the hard way never to assume
You had me out of character
In costumes with a mask like MF Doom
Love aka the elephant in the room
From the birds and bees to the tomb
Through our struggles as caterpillars
Dumbo through our flights
When we break out of our cocoons
Love hurts and soothes
Love plays by and breaks the rules
Love is a sad song, the perfect tune
Love breaks us down
And lifts our colors up when we have the blues
It’s not impossible
For a heart to go through life without a bruise
But love is a difficult language
Even with experience, it’s hard to recognize all the clues
