OMG Sexting!

#whenwewereyoung there was no such thing as "sexting".They are thinking about suing u if ur child sends nude pics of themselves...

It's rare that I get in on a trending topics on Twitter, for the most part they just aren't my kind of topics but #whenwewereyoung was trending yesterday and I have lots to share about that--boy do I! I happended to be watching a news broadcast that was sharing about sexting...by the way it's new to me. Just the thought that a child would send nude or exposing photos of themselves with the same ease of an email or text message blows my mind. Body parts used to be covered but it's the norm to show it all..no need for showNtell. Seriously, young ladies...what would make you photograph yourself or anyone else and send it off like you are America's top rated porn star. Be carful you just might end up being an unwilling porn star as others transfer your 'hot pics' all across the world and parents beware they are seriously considering bringing legal action against you if your child engages in sexting. Some say that's wrong while others say it's straight up pornography. Whatever it is I know it wasn't around and wasn't an issue #whenwewereyoung.

Prayer Tugging

I’ve spent the last week beginning my recovery process after having surgery, its going. As much as I’d love to write I needed to rest my body and my mind and just be refreshed. So here I am with so much I could write about today but I won’t. I’m still resting but was sparked to thinking after reading of a Twitter connections’ search for God as he goes through a divorce after seventeen years. More than anything hearing him say that God spoke to him “I have you” was the one thing that makes me flashback to some of the many trials and adversities the Lord has brought me out of. I’ve reached a point in my life where just those words alone are all I need. Sometimes I had no idea where God was’ I couldn’t feel him or see him. He didn’t seem to be talking at all.

Earlier in my walk I needed to hear him, to feel him to be assured that he was there, but now I just know he’s there. There is always that situation or those situations I should say that cause us to forcefully grow up into knowing that he’ll never leave us or forsake us. They push us out of comfort zones and leave us in a place of certain uncertainty. What we thought we knew we no longer know, things we were once familiar are gone and replaced with the unfamiliar. Interestingly enough we all have to travel this road, some of us travel it soon than others. As unraveling as it is it’s a part of God’s plan to bring us to a place in Him that we sometimes think we already know but haven’t even begun to experience yet. OH just a reminder, this blog is not and won’t be niched…

My heart is in prayer for those hurting. Hopfully you as God's servant are feeling his tug to pray even more as the holiday season which is also a season with a high rate of suicide approaches. People everywhere are broken for various reasons, some God has some he doesn’t. Not because he doesn’t want to have them but because they have rejected him. I am compelled to pray for them also. Aren’t you?

Cobra or Python?

Just sitting thinking and reviewing a question God posed to me prior to election time. It was a question that literally shock me to the core. Like many of you I pray for our nation; that we will be a nation of repentance putting God first. Are we headed in the right direction?

God’s word is clear to those who have an ear to hear what the spirit is saying to the church. I want to share with you a question the Lord asked me August 20, 2008. Here it is:

The question is: If you had a choice (and the choice can't be neither) which snake would you choose to live your life with? I mean in your house, around your children, on your job etc.... a Cobra or a Python?

Proverbs 29:2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

Touchdown Jesus

I’m not a sports fan, definitely not football but I enjoyed and was blessed at the Cotton Bowl, Dallas yesterday. It was refreshing to see a focus on Christ. The invocation was wonderful and a liturgical dance was presented by a mixed group of dancers from churches across the Dallas area. NOW that’s Ephesians 4:16 being demonstrated—a body fitly joined together. We as a collective body must return to God, back to the basics, and back to having Christ as of the foundation of our lives. It was a tremendous blessing to see him welcome and celebrated at the Prairie View A&M-vs-Grambling State University game. ~njs

~Praying For Impact

Visit me on www.twitter.com/gapmin or on

There is much praying going forth, some of it effectual and some not. Many have stopped praying in discouragement because they are not seeing manifested results or at least not seeing results in the manner and the time in which they would like. Our prayers must be prayed for impact. When I say impact I’m not talking about praying with the ‘gimme attitude”. Although prayer is a petition of asking we cheat ourselves out of the power of power when we limit it to entreating God for stuff and things. When I talk about praying for impact I’m speaking of seeing results IN you. Many times the answer to your prayer is not a changed situation but a changed YOU in the situation.

We often enter praying knowing what we want and never asking God what he wants for us or how he desires a situation to conclude for us. Yes, I know his way of concluding things isn’t always what we would like to happen but he knows the end from the beginning.

1 John 5:14-15 brings us to a greater understanding:
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
If we want our prayers to produce something we have to align them with God’s will. When we don’t know God’s will, we have to ask and when we’ve asked and feel as though God is not answering we have to patiently wait.

Praying for impact is praying for influence and effect. What influences God? Your faith influences God. God knows the thoughts that he has towards us (Jeremiah 29:11) and they are thoughts of peace, not evil, to give us an expected end. ~njs

Woman Shifters...

I’m thankful that God has placed me In a position to be able to minister to women. I laugh now because around 2003 I was not so happy to have the opportunity. I recall the time when the Lord told me to start ministering to women and finally after much protesting I obeyed. Why I protested nobody knows because with me God always wins.

I’ve been thinking about women and the innate power God gave them to change an atmosphere. When I say “change” that could be positive or negative change. Women are shifters by God’s design. Something happens in the spiritual atmosphere when anyone prays but there’s the mantle of intercession that women seem to carry. Like it or not most of the praying in churches across the globe is being done by women.

I’m reminded of praying women like Hannah and Anna the prophetess, those that prayed for impact. Our contemporary culture calls women like Hannah and Anna Prayer Warriors. Unfortunately too many have adopted this title with little or no manifested fruit. It’s not that prayer moves God so much; it’s that prayers build your faith (Jude) and your faith touches God and is a sweet smell to him. Your faith is something God can work with!
So then, why are there so many faithless prayers going forth? Why are there so many prayers that don’t avail much? It’s an understatement to say they don’t avail much when the pray-er leaves their time of prayer down and out, dragging, doubtful and spiritually bankrupt. Women of God what’s happening?
