FRIENDS IN LOW PLACES ( re-write )
1. Blame it all on my roots, I showed up in truth,
and ruined your religious affair.
The first one to know, the first one to show,
I was the last one you thought you’d see there.
2. And I saw the surprise and the fear and the lies
when I took away all their shame.
I praised and, said babylon, “you are now through,
and the church shall forever reign.”
‘Cause I got friends in low places,
where the spirit moves and the word chases
their blues away, and they will be okay.
And I’m not big on religious faces, think I’ll slip on down to the oasis,
Am -D G G – Am – D – G
oh, I’ve got friends in low places.
3. Well I got a new song, I just don’t belong,
but then, I’ve been here before.
Everything’s all right, I’ll just stay in the light,
and I’ll show them all to the door.
G Dm Am C
4. Hey I didn’t mean to stand up and sing, but she just has an hour and then
She will be in hell and her smoke shall forever ascend.
(E) Am C
When I walked through the door the way i always did before, but this time
E C Am
There was no one else around when I heard another sound saying:
G D D7 G C D
Arise… Go from this place Arise Take hold of this new day Arise…
Go in the spirit of grace
Em A D7 G
The heavens and the earth say arise…..
E Am C Dm7
I looked out through the window the wind was blowing hard,
G A D Am C Em
it had not rained for many days, then I heard the burst of thunder the storms
clouds they made me wonder.
E Am C A G
Now the day has all ended and the sun has descended there is darkness all

around but then i heard a different sound..

I was once attacked while ministering by a man who wanted to kill me in his own words, He didn’t remember it happening all he could recall was he couldn’t take his eyes off of me and then a light came out of the sky and went through him.

He knows what your going through you can trust Him.
One of my greatest joys in ministry has been giving money away during the prophetic flow seeing exact needs met to the penny some times by revelation or prophetically putting it on the floor and not knowing what or who God would use it for.
One night while preaching in I was caught up in the spirit and have no recollection of the message I was caught up in another realm I cannot explain, but the people were blessed.

#17–Social media is changing everything around us including the church, people put everything up here we are now by design monitored at the will of those who desire to monitor us. The question is should the church have counseling and recovery ministry for online and Facebook addictions seeing it is the cause of great blessing and or great pain.
David R Huskins I think for me one thing I have been personally dealt with is to ONLY USE social media for what is good and uplifting. But to the question I understand there are several ministries that do indeed offer counseling and recovery for FB addictions and even if not addicted it does behoove us all from time to time to remember to take a break from computer and cyber world and live some time in the human world.
Amanda Garner I honesty think addiction to anything is only a symptom of a deeper issue. I have personally unfriended and lost respect for ministry who blasted my newsfeed and personal page with unwelcome political mess. Someone please teach the generations before mine how to use social media. lol
1–Christmas Facts: the “X” comes from the Greek letter Chi, which is the first letter of the Greek word Χριστός, translated as “Christ”.
There is a common misconception that the word Xmas stems from a secular attempt to remove the religious tradition from Christmas by taking the “Christ” out of “Christmas”
2–Christmas Fact #2 please don’t get mad just in fun no legalism here. 🙂 There is no mention in scripture about 3 wise men there could have been 300 and when they finally found Jesus he was a toddler around 2 years old so much for the traditional nativity scene.
3–Christmas Fact #3 December 25th would not be Jesus real birthday more like around the 29th of Sept. The Shepherds still kept their flock by night and it was during the time of taxation. Don’t get mad no legalism here. : )
4–Christmas Fact #4 There were actually 12 days originally called the feast of Saturnalia (worship of the sun god) then it was changed by Constantine the Roman emperor in his attempt to make everything christian into the Mass of Christ the birthday of Jesus. don’t get mad now just a bit of history:)
5–Christmas Fact #5 Make the most of this season enjoy it give to those in need, be sensitive to the hurting, let others know about the unconditional incredible love of Jesus, and may all make room for Him as our King of Kings and Lord of Lords peace for all men.
6–Christmas Fact #6 Mary was in her mid-teens a virgin meaning she never had sex then she conceived of the Holy Spirit so she supplied the egg, but the seed came from God, that is why Jesus blood is pure and holy it was God’s blood.
7–Christmas fact #7 The first ones to hear the Angels sing and know that a change had come was the shepherds keeping their flock in the night..think about that a little a real shepherd always sees him first.
8–Christmas Fact # 8 No one should be manipulated or have stress put on them to perform financially or otherwise because of this season, a market driven society will always use whatever to make a sell this season is their biggest time of year, so be transparent if you can’t you can’t.
9–Christmas Fact #9 When John the baptist was born God named him not after Zachariah “God remembers” or Elizabeth “God is my oath” but John meaning God is gracious, saying God’s grace not logic is what prepares the way for the coming of the Christ.
10–Christmas fact #10 In reality Jesus was never in Christmas so we can’t keep him in it, but he is in you, He is in love, in giving, in family, in joy and in the smiles of little children and with those who are broken and lonely He is everything we really want Christmas to be and why so many love this season.

Eph.4:23-And be renewed in the spirit (attitude) of your mind;
It is one thing to have our mind renewed and another thing to have the spirit of our mind renewed the source of our thoughts and belief system.
1– Live out of your potential because there we are empowered by the life of God most people find themselves living out of negative self -opinion based on past experiences, hurts, abuses, failures and as a result of this unconsciously self sabotage.
2–Eliminate excuses for not being more productive, excuses blind us from finding solutions to problems, shut off our creativity, and are normally nothing more than a lack of desire.
(3)–Build a positive orderly environment take one step to an ordered life every day, identify the things that intimidate us from being organized while at the same time remove clutter from your life.
(4)— Control what you eat spiritually mentally and physically, It is true we are what we eat our eating can effect everything so shut the doors of abusive foods that cause us to feel sluggish and irritable, in all areas create a habit of eating healthy.
(5)—Make your closest friends the people who inspire you and challenge you to live out of your potential, the law of association says walk with the wise and you will be wise, but if you walk with the foolish you will be destroyed by that foolishness.
Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble.Pro.13:20
(6)—Thankfulness is the cure for negativity give thanks “in” everything! We can train our self to see the good and the positive things in life and our thoughts will be focused on the greater truth’s of light life and divine solutions then we will be filled with understanding in all things.
(7)– Decide to live in excellence instead of mediocrity this will release the grace of God to destroy mental barriers that keep us from fulfilling divine purpose.
God sees and speaks to our potential that is the Christ within us not to our self opinion.

It is not in good singing——It is in praise and worship.
It is not in tradition———It is in vision.
It is not in preaching———It is in impartation.
It is not in rituals & ceremony—It is in the joy of life.
It is not in how many———-It is in how much.
It is not in race or gender—-It is in whosoever will.
It is not in going to church—It is that we are the church.
