Found this pick last night while looking for something else. It is something so true! If you seek true your eyes will become clear. This picture alone is enough said!! you can Like it or Love it! lol


crossroads_detail

 

There are so many signs but yet 2 decisions. There are so many crossroads but yet 1 direction. There are so many people but yet 1 leader. I have hit yet another crossroad in my life, weighing 2 burdens  of choices on my shoulders which eventually one will fall……Crossroads in life are not defined as only choices, life is all about choice we make choices everyday! Crossroads are defined as not only a equal amount of result but also a choice that is unseen. Crossroads are solely and completely dependent on your faith. Depending on the road you choose determines the amount of faith in your heart….Its not only the amount of faith you have for yourself but it the amount of faith you have for God.

 

With all the signs you only have  2 decisions….One go down the old road, the road of what you are more formilar with, the one that is more safe. This road requires very little amount of faith and less amount of work. The other decision is the exact opposite, Its the new road…something you have never seen. A road that requires all of your faith and all the amounts of hard work.

God creates crossroads for a reason….Which road do you think he would be more proud of?

Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” Gen 1:26. If we walk like Jesus and be the image of him he has already granted dominion over this world. Look I am not saying I am better then anyone nor Im saying I will rule over all creatures that move along this earth but I will tell you one thing I will rule over any demonic spirit that comes my way. I will kick down the doors of this world. And I will let every person know the God I serve!

I believe in every word God has spoke Im not saying Im perfect and never broke his word but as long as I live I will never stop trying. He gave us the key to success that we should fear no one on this earth…. and for that I live FEARLESS!!


For some reason I love the stare! lol I was at the gym last night wearing a sweater I got along time ago that said” God Can” Its in really bold letters you really cant miss it. I had my ear phones on forgetting I had the sweater on wondering why people are looking at me the way they are. I watch their eyes go from my sweater to my face, I looked down at my sweater and thats when I put 2 and 2 together. I looked back up and smiled at the person as if I realized what they were looking at. With the same stare they just looked away….

As a creator of a faith based clothing line I am very formilar with the “stare”…just then I wasn’t in a realization because I was in workout mode. But I have broke this stare down into 2 categories. 1 they could be staring because they dont have the same beliefs as me and they dont like the boldness being brought to a neutral area. But that doesn’t really matter to me because Jesus was bold where ever he went lol. Or 2 they do believe in the same beliefs and for some reason in shock that I am exposing my beliefs.

All in all we can keep out beliefs to our self….God didn’t save us to save one he is using you to save many. He called us to be bold like him. Even if they dont believe and give you the crazy look…thats ok at the end of the day they are getting exposed and a seed has been dropped in there hearts… You never know you might be the one to save a life…..


In 2013 there will be 3 doors in our journey. The bible talks about the weeds and the wheat. It talks about during the harvest weeds will be the ones getting ripped out and casted into the fire. Matthew 13:10 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.'”…..Now Im not trying to scare you in anyway,Im trying to bring awareness to you. When weeds an wheat grow together it is very hard to tell which is which…….God will identify them by how YOU grow.

The 3 doors that will be presented to you in 2013 will show our growth in Christ. They will be doors of Good. doors of Great and doors of GOD. The doors of good and great are doors of the world. God does not live there. These doors are what will identity your heart. In each door there requires a good amount of sacrifice. The good and great doors sacrifice your love for God. The God door  sacrifices the great and good of this world……See the God door almost every time doesn’t look as good as the great and good doors according to the world. But in actuality it is so much more richer that your mind cant even imagine.

So have faith and choose the God door.And I identify your self to the world by wearing Gods Uniform…Malachi CLothing!!

As I started this journey I had no clue what I was getting myself into. I had no desire to create clothing, all I knew is that God told me to do this….I know many of you are sitting there thinking, “this dude is crazy.” And you guys can think I’m as crazy as they come, but it’s true. At one point, I even thought I was crazy when I heard him talk to me…. I told myself, “pssh, nah that could never be me” but as promised, God never lies. I battled with this calling almost every week with the devil, telling me no one will wear Christian clothing, it’s too corny or….you are only ONE person, why would anyone listen to you? But at the end of the day I continue to remind myself that the devil is a lie and I can’t let that control my drive. I notice that sacrifice takes place in almost everything you do. It’s ultimately your choice in what area you plan to sacrifice. I’ve noticed many sacrifice for a lie because it’s easier to believe in worldly perspective, but I plan to sacrifice for truth. Truth is not easy to accept, but is nourishment to the soul. Lies will keep you where you are, truth will get you to his goal. But most of all, God is pleased with the obedience of truth.

 

I believe God has a designated plan for each and every person, but it is your choice to take it. Taking it requires a lot of faith, obedience, trust, and courage. It’s not easy to Sacrifice for Truth, because with truth comes pain. But with every kind of growth, even spiritual growth, there must be growing pains. Trust in what can’t be seen, learn what can’t be taught, and think the way I never thought. These are my growing pains……
