A word to my single brothers and sisters. I guess it's just that time of the year that we tend to bend the rules and compromise our integrity. Is that what’s going on? It’s getting cold so we want to keep this thang heated up! This has to be the case because lately, I have personally received so many requests to pray for the area that many of us struggle in as singles; maintaining sexual purity! I... do not a...nd will not ever advise in an area that I have not experienced or have acquired enough knowledge to lead someone else. I will warn you that when you ask for advice in this area, I am going to tell you what God loves and NOT what you probably want to hear. SEX outside of marriage is prohibited by the Lord, not me! I did not make that rule. I am hearing that relationships are failing, lives are being destroyed, and people are just not sure how to handle what is happening as a result of sleeping with someone that is not their spouse! This is what you should expect when you do it your way and not God's way. He knew the consequences we would suffer by giving into our fleshly desires; baby mama drama, missing daddy's, emotionally distraught people, unwanted pregnancies, STD’s, sleepless nights and just straight confusion! If you have not experienced any of this as a result of your creeping, sleeping, tipping and booty calling, just keep it up and I promise you will. Stop calling and asking for advice if you don’t want to be held accountable! We want relief without the deliverance and I’m not going to utilize my time fasting and praying for inappropriate relationships! None of us are perfect but you have to at least have the desire to want to wait for YOUR GOD GIVEN mate. A quickie is not worth a lifetime of pain! A few months of some heated moments won’t get you what you want! So I suggest we single people take plenty of cold showers, warm up by the fire or a portable heater; cuddle up with the word of God over a hot cup of cocoa, coffee or tea and WAIT! While we wait, let’s keep our mind stayed on Jesus and do some productive stuff like help some people, study, get our finances straight or receive more education! God He has so much more in store for those that can be a little more disciplined. If we can’t control our genitals, we continue to forfeit blessings from God! Stop giving in to the devil! No one is perfect or free from sin, however, the greater knowledge we have of God, the more He expects from us. I was unable to commit to this type of discipline until I studied what sexual immorality is and what it does to everyone that is involved. All it takes is the desire to do better and then commit your ways to the Lord. So in a nutshell, if you don’t want to know the truth about shacking, single sexing and all the other baggage that comes with engaging in premarital sex, don’t come to me! I have a zero tolerance for those that play with this thing! I am sick of the body of Christ, I mean those that profess true salvation, but can’t stay out of somebody’s pants or under somebody’s dress! Get out of that bed if it’s not yours! Start tonight by going to bed with JESUS on your mind and you'll wake up with your mind STAYED on Him! I Corinthians 6:18: Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body.

The Fourth Quarter
Any football fans out there? Surely, many of you know a whole lot more than me. However, I am aware that football is a sport played between two teams of eleven at one time with the objective of scoring points by advancing the ball into the opposing team's end zone. The ball can be advanced by running with it or throwing it to a teammate. Each team is subject to run into, run over, hold back and blocks the opposing team to keep the man with the ball safe! Points can be scored by carrying the ball over the opponent's goal line, catching a pass thrown over that goal line, kicking the ball through the opponent's goal posts or tackling an opposing ball carrier in his own end zone. Wow, sounds so harsh.
I realize there is a lot more to the game but a few other words that come to mind are words like kickoff, first downs, defense, offense, snaps, penalties, center, line of scrimmage, yards, gains, sudden death, rushing, pass, passing, forward pass, tackle, incomplete, out of bounds, interception, sack, fumble, safety, touchback, turnover, punt, and touchdown! A standard football game consists of four 15-minute quarters and an intermission after the second quarter. All of the above mentioned words describe the game of football and can take place at any given time.
Our lives also consist of two teams; good and evil! Daily we are hit by the opposing team as we strive to carry out the gospel of Jesus Christ! Sometimes it just seems impossible to advance or gain as we are criticized and penalized for each and every move we make. We look to our teammates at times but it appears that they are messing up just as bad or more of them are sitting on the sideline rather than being involved! The real players get knocked around so much that sudden death seems to be near! We run as to win that prize and sometimes find ourselves going beyond the dimensions that have been set resulting in another incomplete assignment!
I just want to encourage you to stay in the game! The end zone is not an unattainable goal! It’s designed for winners. Whatever God has told you to do, tackle it with God's word! Run with it, carry it; take the hits if you have to! Should you fumble, get back up and pick up where you left off! Don't forget who is really running the ball, or should I say calling the shots behind the scenes in our lives. He is the defensive and offensive coordinator! He is the head coach; the owner of the team! Even in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd quarters of this year, you may have felt like a complete failure. Or maybe things just have not turned out like you expected. Don't lose heart! Some of the best comebacks have taken place in the 4th quarter! I have seen some great interceptions, even in the last few seconds of the game; demanding a complete turnaround. What am I trying to say? We are in the 4th quarter of this year and the people of God are about to experience the greatest turnover ever! Just lie watching your favorite team play ball, don't you dare turn that dial or abort your assignment until the last quarter has ended! Whether it's the normal four quarters or you need a little extra overtime, just know that It ani't over 'til God says, "It's over! 2 Corinthians 4:17 states, For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
Remember, if you can understand the game of football surely you can understand this thing called life! Be blessed today.
