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!!

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……
