21 Days of Prayer: Leadership
Words that I hear in my head when I think of leadership are humility, integrity, and faithful to name a few.  Leadership is a calling that every man has on his life, no matter what the vocation.  Men are naturally leaders.  (BTW women are naturally leaders also, after all this is Morning Meditation for Men so allow me to talk to the men).  Brothers we have a responsibility to lead our family, our community, and in the work place.  We lead.  It is my prayer that your leadership skills will improve as you search the scripture and dig down into  all that God has called you to do.   Exodus 18:13-23 emphasis 21 (NASB)  21 Furthermore, you shall [q]select out of all the people able men who fear God, men of truth, those who hate dishonest gain; and you shall place these over them as leaders of thousands, [r]of hundreds, [s]of fifties, and [t]of tens.  1 Timothy 4:12 (TPT) 11 Instruct and teach the people all that I’ve taught you. 12 And don’t be intimidated by those who are older than you; simply be the example they need to see by being faithful and true in all that you do. Speak the truth[i] and live a life of purity and authentic love as you remain strong in your faith. Thank you for being part of the #RiseAndGrindCrew! I am glad you are here. It is my prayer that the #MorningMeditationForMen podcast/prayercast are helping you to obtain a deeper richer relationship with Jesus Christ. All while enjoying a deliciously rich cup of #Coffee #Java #CupOfJoe! Have a super day brothers.

21 Days of Prayer: Finances
Today throughout my day I am praying for you finances.  I believe that God wants his children to live in a place fo peace and abundance when it come to our finances.  He has laid out some promises that we will never be without as long as we follow the "instruction on the package".  Know that your struggle with finances is not just relegated to you, but many struggle.  I promise with prayer, study of scripture, discipline and some reading you will get a firm grasp on your finances and everything that you desire for you and your family will fall into place. Proverbs 22:7 The poor are always ruled over by the rich, so don’t borrow and put yourself under their power. Philippians 4:19 And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Proverbs 3:9-10 Honor the Lord from your wealth, And from the first of all your produce; Then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine. Thank you for being part of the #RiseAndGrindCrew! I am glad you are here.

21 Days of Prayer: Overcome
God has given us all the Grace to overcome the guilt, and shame of our past and of sin. We do not have to be stuck in that place any longer. One of the benefits of being part of God’s family is that we are not bound by religious philosophies that tell us that we are not good enough! When Jesus died on the cross for our sin it was once and for all. When we accept Christ into our lives we automatically become an overcomer because he overcame, and he did that all just for us! For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under the Law but under grace. (Romans 6:14) For whoever has been born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world: our faith. (1 John 5:4) But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us reveals the fragrance of the knowledge of Him in every place. (2 Corinthians 2:14) All scripture reference from New American Standard Bible unless otherwise noted. Thank you for being part of the #RiseAndGrindCrew!  I am glad you are here. It is my prayer that the #MorningMeditationForMen podcast/prayercast are helping you to obtain a deeper richer relationship with Jesus Christ.  All while enjoying a deliciously rich cup of #Coffee #Java #CupOfJoe!  Have a super day brothers.  Peace and Blessings and thank you for listening to the #Podcast every #Tuesday and #Thursday #GodsGrace #Grace #Prayer #TheImpactMan #SGeoffreyMonts #Anchor #Spotify #ApplePodcast #GooglePodcast #Breaker #Overcast #YouTube #iHeartRadio Intro Music: "Say Goodnight" Joakim Kraud Symphonic Music: "Vision" www.morningmeditationformen.com

21 Days of Prayer: Healing
Today we are praying for your healing.  Hold on to these two thing when you find yourself in an areas of physical, mental, emotional or even relationship sickness.   #1. Your sickness is your reality, not your identity. #2. God has provided divine protection for you in the midst of your sickness. Heal me, Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise. Jeremiah 17:14

21 Days of Prayer: Organization
Good morning, good morning, good morning to the Rise and Grind Crew!  Grab your cup of coffee, grab your device and let's get into this word! Taken out of context 1 Corinthians 14:40 says that we should be sure that the whole of our life and ministry is done in a place of order.  Organization and pride have kept me from a lot of blessings.  I wonder if I am the only one, I doubt it seriously.  As men we tend not to ask for help when we need it from our spouses, our family our doctors to name a few.  I admonish you to get your life organized so you can live your best life and part of that is asking for assistance when you need it.  Today we will start by asking God to help us get organized in every area of our life.  NO MORE CHAOS!  God we need order.  Being unorganized will lead to missing important deadline, always forgetting where you put your keys, missing important dates for the most important people in your life.  Pray with me today for organization and experience what God can do with an organized man.   I'M OUTTA HERE PEACE #Prayer #RiseAndGrindCrew #Coffee #Java #CupOfJoe #MorningMeditationForMen #Podcast #TuesdayAndThursday #GodsGrace #Grace #TheImpactMan #SGeoffreyMonts #Anchor #Spotify #ApplePodcast #GooglePodcast #Breaker #Overcast #YouTube #iHeartRadio

21 Days of Prayer: Peace
Today starts a new series for Morning Meditation for Men.  We will begin our first 21 Days of Prayer series.  Today we start off with Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.  Peace is not the absents of conflict.  It is the calm assurance that God is in the midsts of all that you are going through and he is in total control.  Trust God, allow him to remain in control.  Although the very appearance of you life may seem like it is spinning out of control, with God in the drivers seat you, your family, your finances, will be okay.  Trust the process and remain in peace.

I Choose to Speak Life
When life kicks you in the balls, we are talking to the fella here right, do not use it as an opportunity to talk bad about life, spouse, family, children!  Find the good in everything and repeat it for your life. Listen to this If you fail never give up because F.A.I.L is an acronym for FIRST ATTEMPT IN LEARNING.  End is not the end in fact E.N.D is an acronym for EFFORD NEVER DIES. If you get NO as an answer N.O. is an acronym for NEXT OPPORTUNITY.  We have to speak life over ourselves and everyone connected to us.   The scripture teaches in Proverbs 18:21; Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

Shattered But Useful
No matter what state (physically, emotionally, mentally) we find ourselves in, we still matter to God our King and his plan for The Kingdom. In the most broken point of our existence , we still have value, we still have worth and we still have purpose. Never discount what you are going through, because what you are going THROUGH will provide the you the wisdom to help you pull or push someone out when they are stuck. Growing up in Connecticut winter storms were sometimes brutal, lasting days and racking up inches in snow fall. Several inches snow was not an excuse to STOP life. Transportation continued, and many got stuck in the snow. I have seen several people come behind and give a weary driver a push, I have seen cars hooked up to other vehicles to receive a pull out of ditch, and I have seen cars stuck and abandoned, only to return the next day and find the street clear. No matter what, they did not get stuck. I admonish you do not get stuck in your personal winter storm. You may have to wait until the storm has passed or get help in the middle of the storm. Brother, you are coming out of this and you have just as much purpose, better yet even more, than when you went in! Psalm 147:3, He heals the brokenhearted. And binds up their wounds. 2 Corinthians 4:7-10, 7 But we have this treasure in [e]earthen containers, so that the extraordinary greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves; 8 we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed; 10 always carrying around in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.

One Time: When It's Over, It's Over
At the end of the day, it is about belief.  Do you believe that Jesus died to ransom your life?  Do you believe that he was the ultimate sacrifice ?  This is what the Apostle John teaches: Jesus answered them and said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate some of the loaves and were filled.  Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that lasts for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you, for on Him the Father, God, has set His seal.” Therefore they said to Him, “What are we to do, so that we may accomplish the works of God?” Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.” So they said to Him, “What then are You doing as a sign, so that we may see, and believe You? What work are You performing? Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written: ‘He gave them bread out of heaven to eat.’” Jesus then said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread out of heaven, but it is My Father who gives you the true bread out of heaven. For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven and gives life to the world.” Then they said to Him, “Lord, always give us this bread.” Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; the one who comes to Me will not be hungry, and the one who believes in Me will never be thirsty. Fellas I implore you to make a decision for Jesus today.  Tomorrow is not promised to you.  The moment you hear this word the moment you read these show notes make your decision.  The Apostle Paul offered this to those who were gathering in Rome: But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”—that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person BELIEVES, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in SALVATION. MORE THAN ANYTHING, MORE THAN ANYTHING GIVE YOUR LIFE TO CHRIST.  I CAN MAKE THIS ONE PROMISE, A DECISION TO LIVE A LIFE FOR CHRIST IS NOT GOING TO A BED OF EASE, BUT IT WILL ALWAYS BE WORTH IT. #RiseAndGrindCrew #Coffee #Java #CupOfJoe #MorningMeditationForMen #Podcast #TuesdayAndThursday #GodsGrace #Grace #Prayer #TheImpactMan #SGeoffreyMonts #Anchor #Spotify #ApplePodcast #GooglePodcast #Breaker #Overcast #YouTube #iHeartRadio I am currently working on a special offer for you.  Make sure you stay connected for my first book.  Dropping October 2021

Thank You!
Psalm 136 is an example of antiphonal praise to Jehovah!  Right there in the first few verses the psalmist writes that our God is the only God!  But what stands out to me in this is beautiful call and response is that the choir keeps saying THANK YOU!  Brothers thank you must become part of our daily vocabulary.  We must continue with thanks on our lips not just to God, but our spouse, our children, our family!  In the great times, never forget to say thank you that you are in that state, in the rough times say thank you that God is providing a way of escape from that place too.   Thank you makes room for more.  It opens a portal of possibilities for our lives.  Never forget to say THANK YOU.   With that I want to say thank you for all of you all over the globe who are listening and sharing Morning Meditation For Men.  I am honored that you share a few moments with me each week.  It is my prayer that our time together will be rewarding, challenging and motivating for you.  I know that they are for me.  Again, Thank You.  Please continue to like rate (with 5 stars), comment and share with your friends, family and men's groups.   Peace!

Hey God, I've Got A Few Questions!
In Job chapter 10, Job has a litany of questions that he said he will ask God when he gets a change. Job was challenged with the paradox of faith and doubt. In our search for truth and righteousness we must move beyond an outside second person relationship with God.  We must get acquainted with God one on one.  Because life promises to be challenging and if you do not know God doubt will come in and try to destroy your relationship. When you KNOW God you will have a well grounded and well founded basis that God has your best interest in mind. When we go though our metaphorical valley experience and we find ourselves at the lowest point of our very existence or when climb to our mountain top experience and the air is so thin we find ourselves not being able to breath, we still with the little we have left in us can state, I trust God!  Get to know him today.

It's Up To Us 2: Turn
God requires us to TURN from our wicked way, our sinful and sin filled lives.  He requires us to move from out past and move forward with him.  Sin is simply missing the mark.  If you have missed the mark with honesty, integrity, morality, belief and so on; if you have missed the mark you have sinned.  Here is the great news, if you are in Christ, if you have given your life to Jesus you are no longer under the dominion of sin.  You are controlled by sin, but you have the ability to look sin in the face and deny it any place in your life.  Brother's in this podcast we talk about turning 180 degrees and walking away from sin, so we can live out best life!   Please do me a favor share this podcast on your social media post, or with a few of your friends. Get the word out that God is a God of Grace and favor and he wants to share it with everyone.

Set Your Heart Right!
PRAYER. #Period. It is time for us to get back to prayer.  Set your heart right.  Walk away from all of the foolishness and childish behaviors.  Get in front of God and ask him to provide you with instructions and solutions that you can implement in your life to become the Man that he has designed for you to be.  How do I set my heart right?  Prayer, pure simple communication with God.  No more excuses.  Let's go!

A Good Man: Beware of Despair
Depression and despair go hand in hand.  But the issue with despair is that it is a true sense of hopelessness.  When you have Christ in your life there is NEVER hopelessness.  The Son of Korah wrote in the Hebrew song book (Psalm 42) "Why are you in despair, my soul? And why are you restless within me? Wait for God, for I will again praise Him, For the help of His presence, my God."  It reminds us that God is our hope.  One true nature of God that I can attest to is that he is a repeat offender; if He did it before, He will do it again.  God will bring you out just like he did with you before.  Just like he did with the children of Israel.  Just like He did with Paul in the prison.  Never give up your hope.  Beware of despair, because it only come to push you over the edge.  But our God has come to breath new life into you.  Wait on Him, I promise he will show up on time.

A Good Man: Your Words Matter
When we speak without thinking we can destroy a life, a future, a family and the list goes on.  It is imperative that we remember that our words have power, the Bible teaches us that.  Job found himself in a place where his emotions took over, and he did not think before he spoke.  The monologue in chapter nine sound like some of us at time a double faucet, two headed, two faced.  Spewing blessing and hatred from the same mouth!  Wow, just wow!  Men, brothers, friends we must remember that our words count and they leave a lasting impression.  Your Words Matter, choose them wisely.

A Good Man: Know God's Voice
Life is LOUD! People are LOUD!  One thing that I have learned in this LOUD life is that God speaks, He does not yell. Make sure you learn and know his voice through the maze of noise.

It Is Finished!
As cruel and heinous as His death was he had to go through with it,  He had to endure it, because without this final sacrifice of an unblemished lamb we would not be able to experience Grace in its fullest. Under his own power, he walked up the HILL, he hung there, and he gave up his life so that we could have life.  My sprint cried every time I read this account, to think he would sacrifice it all for me. I cried tears of grief and joy at the same time.  Our father send our brother into the world to save us from ourselves!  All I can say is thank you elder brother for bringing me back to Poppa God!

Forgive Them
Forgiveness forges a bond to yourself that says I will not allow external forces to dictate my internal peace. Forgivness Frees you from others and yourself Forgiveness give you focus,  Life is much bigger than you.  Let go of the hurt and the pain of your past and embrace God of today and who you are right now.  Because life is fluid we are every changing if we remain honest.  Unforgiveness is concrete to your destiny.

REMAIN !
In life we have choices.  Luke's narration of the Christ's passion opens a scene when 3 different entities have chosen to REMAIN in their position no matter what.  The Authority, The Crowd and The Lamb. As men we are called to REMAIN steadfast in our integrity, our self awareness, our passion our courage and so many other characteristics.  Keep your eyes on Christ as you walk out your life in holiness and righteousness before The God of Grace!  REMAIN

Receive The Father's Gift
Sometimes we receive gifts that we are not to fond of.  For an example a sweater that may not be "my color".  Although you do not throw the sweater away, it is thrown in a place until it is needed, in the winter.  God will give us gifts that we may not penetrate our limited perception.  We wonder why he would give us suffering?  We have been chatting about Job for quite a while now, but we shift our focus to Jesus, notice how he suffered.  Some would say that he suffered in silence, I surmised that he had his moments of questions about the process.  However in the midst of it he, Jesus, realized that His suffering had a greater impetus than just him being released from a place.  Jesus suffered so we would not have to bear the sting of suffering!  Yes, my brothers we will, heck, we must suffer, but because of Jesus' sacrifice it is nothing like it should be.  Thanks be to God who gives us the VICTORY!   Remember this, your suffering is meant to make someone else greater, while pushing to paramount position in this life! JOHN 18: 1-10 (NLT) 1. After saying these things, Jesus crossed the Kidron Valley with his disciples and entered a grove of olive trees. 2 Judas, the betrayer, knew this place, because Jesus had often gone there with his disciples. 3 The leading priests and Pharisees had given Judas a contingent of Roman soldiers and Temple guards to accompany him. Now with blazing torches, lanterns, and weapons, they arrived at the olive grove. 4 Jesus fully realized all that was going to happen to him, so he stepped forward to meet them. “Who are you looking for?” he asked. 5 “Jesus the Nazarene,” they replied. “I am he,” Jesus said. (Judas, who betrayed him, was standing with them.) 6 As Jesus said “I am he,” they all drew back and fell to the ground! 7 Once more he asked them, “Who are you looking for?” And again they replied, “Jesus the Nazarene.” 8 “I told you that I am he,” Jesus said. “And since I am the one you want, let these others go.” 9 He did this to fulfill his own statement: “I did not lose a single one of those you have given me.”  10 Then Simon Peter drew a sword and slashed off the right ear of Malchus, the high priest’s slave. 11 But Jesus said to Peter, “Put your sword back into its sheath. Shall I not drink from the cup of suffering the Father has given me?” 2 CORINTHIANS 4:16-18 (AMP) 16 Therefore we do not become discouraged [spiritless, disappointed, or afraid]. Though our outer self is [progressively] wasting away, yet our inner self is being [progressively] renewed day by day. 17 For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble] is producing for us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]! 18 So we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are unseen; for the things which are visible are temporal [just brief and fleeting], but the things which are invisible are everlasting and imperishable.

Stay The Course!
You have been called to do something great!  Many times as we start we are on fire, we have a group of people around us and we start off RUNNING!  What often happens as we traverse our personal path people will begin to fall off, and we loose our drive.  Remember the assignment was given to you, not them.  No matter what happens, no matter who falls off Stay the Course!

A Good Man: Leave Me Alone!
I just wish I could be left alone! I wish these kids would shut up, I wish my spouse would stop nagging, I really wish my boss would quit acting like a butt!  I just want to be left alone, in my sorrow, in my mess, by myself !  LEAVE ME ALONE.   I have been there before, but the issue with being left alone is that you are no good on your own. You need someone there to encourage you and push you in your darkest hour.  We may say it, but trust me, we do not want it.

A Good Man: Wisdom
Life is fleeting, it is a vapor. Use the time you have with purpose and on purpose.  You only get one chance to get it done.  The scriptures remind us that Man that is born of a woman is full of trouble and of a few days.  Brothers remember life is short, make it count.

A Good Man: Integrity
Good morning, good morning, good morning It is time to rise and grind!  Today we are going to talk about integrity. As men we need to operate in a place that we have a strong moral compass, we must operated from a place of being whole.  God requires us to examine ourselves and see where we are found wanting.  That is when we need to apply principal of Integrity and Righteousness to our lives.  Listen, I know, we are going to miss it, but the point here is to try.  If you miss it try again, and if you miss it again, try again.  We must tenacious in our pursuit of righteousness and integrity. A man of integrity walks away from self-indulgence and walks toward a commitment to be Righteous.  I am praying for you. Visit our website and connect with me and share your prayer request with me.  MorningMeditationForMen.com Life is bigger than your erect penis, your next crooked business deal, getting your point across. Live a life of integrity.

A Good Man: Refreshed with the Word
WELCOME TO THE RISE AND GRIND CREW! Today we encounter Job speaking and he is in a adverse psychological location.  Again he request that God would just take him out!  In essence he tells Eliphaz that his words are tasteless and meaningless, and to shut up!  Being in a place of such hopelessness is devastating to the body and the soul.   Being in a place of hopelessness you will seemingly try anything to soothe your ache and scratch your itch. I have tried to eat it away, I have tried to drink it away with alcohol, I have tried to smoke it away with weed and I have tried to sex it away with women that I was not committed to, to name a few.  After all of the eating, drinking, smoking and sexing there was still a void!  The void remained because the pleasure of the flesh was not what I needed to bring wholeness and peace.  What I needed was a WORD from GOD Jehovah.  I needed to hear my Father whisper in my ear. "It's going to be okay. My Grace is sufficient for you. When you are weak, son, that is when I can show my strength."  I needed my Father, My Daddy to pick me up and remind me that I am loved.  I needed to be "Refreshed in His Words"

What God has for you transcends the microscopic limits of our human understanding. The blessing goes beyond cars, houses, money, health and healing. THE BLESSING is operating in Grace and wholeness in every area of your life. Isaiah 26:3 reminds “because our mind are steadfast and set, Jehovah will keep us in perfect peace!” You are living in THE BLESSING because of your steadfast love and trust in God. No matter what it looks like speak out loud, I am in in perfect peace. #TheImpactMan #MorningMeditationForMen #RiseandGrindCrew #Podcast #Grace #Coffee #CoffeeFirst #BlkandGold #TheBlessing

A Good Man Seeks God
YOU KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS, IT IS TIME TO RISE AND GRIND! Listen, chaos and calamity have your name on it, they are sitting at the door waiting to come in.  No matter how good you are, no matter how upright and righteous you are trouble will find you.  Just ask Job.  We are continuing our deep dive into Job in chapter 5 we see his friend sharing what can be see with the physical eye.  Job is in trouble, it does not look good for him, just a bleak forecast for his current situation and his life.  Some where in the middle this discourse Eliphaz make the statement, "Take your case to God".  That is where we come in today.  Take your case to God.  No matter who you are you are going to have trouble show up in your life.  It is simply LIFE.  But our hope is in the fact that God will avenge us, because we are righteous.  Because we are his children. Because we are covered by GRACE!  So Brothers take your case to God, let him work it out!  Joseph Scriven penned these words and added music: What a Friend we have in Jesus,   All our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to carry   Everything to God in prayer! O what peace we often forfeit,   O what needless pain we bear, All because we do not carry   Everything to God in prayer! Have we trials and temptations?   Is there trouble anywhere? We should never be discouraged,   Take it to the Lord in prayer. Can we find a friend so faithful   Who will all our sorrows share? Jesus knows our every weakness,   Take it to the Lord in prayer. Are we weak and heavy-laden,   Cumbered with a load of care? Precious Savior, still our refuge—   Take it to the Lord in prayer; Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?   Take it to the Lord in prayer; In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,   Thou wilt find a solace there. Find your hope in knowing that no matter what circumstances and situations we find ourselves in or put ourselves into, We have a friend in Jesus and He will help us in bearing it all.

A Good Man: Secrets & Lies
It is time to Rise and Grind!  Welcome to The Rise and Grind Crew! In the book of Job Chapter 4 Job answers he friend, and he says He heard something in secret, and whispers.  *ALERT* Secrets come with a cost.  Remember everything that people whisper in your ear is not always what you need to hear.  On today's podcast we explore how secrets can be devastate and destroy our lives. We explore how we have been told that "secrets" should be kept close to our hearts.  What Secrets & Lies were you told as a child, a teenager, or even an adult?  What lies have we allowed our circumstances and situations (The Enemy of our Destiny) to speak into our very existence?  Know this my brother, that you are more than enough to get it all accomplished.  Today I pray that God in with His unstoppable power and unrelenting Grace would deliver us from ourselves, our destiny awaits us.

A Good Man Does Not Panic
Do Not Panic Job 4: 1-6 Then Eliphaz the Temanite replied to Job “If someone tries to talk to you, will you become impatient? But who can keep from talking? Certainly, you have instructed many people: When hands were weak, you made them strong. When someone stumbled, you lifted him up with your words. When knees were weak, you gave them strength. But trouble comes to you, and you’re impatient. It touches you, and you panic. Doesn’t your fear of God give you confidence and your lifetime of integrity give you hope? Brothers have you ever been in a place where it seem like your world is falling apart? The first thing I want you to do is slow down and remember who you are. You are a heir and a joint heir with Jesus Christ. Secondly I want you to remember how you have been instrumental in caring for others. How you have been there for so many people, how you have spoken life into seemingly dead situations because of what is in you. God has blessed you beyond measure! So Brother, do not panic! God will get you through this too. Thanks for listening please subscribe and share this podcast with your friends and family.

Vantage Point
Welcome to The Rise and Grind Crew!  We love the word of God and we love coffee.  It is my prayer that you enjoy the journey of life with us.  Let's Go!! It's time to change your glasses.  It's time to go to a different vantage point to see all that you have at your disposal to use for God's glory.  Brother's do not get caught up with what you see other people and evil people are doing and what they have.  You are the righteousness of God and he promises to defend and uphold his own.  We just need to look again through the lens of the Lord. 1 Do not be preoccupied with evildoers. Do not envy those who do wicked things. 2 They will quickly dry up like grass and wither away like green plants. 3 Trust the Lord, and do good things. Live in the land, and practice being faithful. 4 Be happy with the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 5 Entrust your ways to the Lord. Trust him, and he will act [on your behalf]. 6 He will make your righteousness shine like a light, your just cause like the noonday sun. 7 Surrender yourself to the Lord, and wait patiently for him. Do not be preoccupied with ⌊an evildoer⌋ who succeeds in his way when he carries out his schemes. 8 Let go of anger, and leave rage behind. Do not be preoccupied. It only leads to evil. 9 Evildoers will be cut off [from their inheritance], but those who wait with hope for the Lord will inherit the land. 10 In a little while a wicked person will vanish.

Who's Driving ?
Morning Meditation 4 Men!  Welcome to the Rise and Grind Crew!  We love the word of God and we love coffee.  It is my prayer that you enjoy the journey of life with us.  Let's Go!! Self help?  Naw, it takes sacrifice brothers to do what God is calling us to do.  Once we get out of the way all that we do will bring God glory and ultimately bring us peace and contentment with life.  Go for it, "LET GO" and allow Holy Spirit to be the driver of your life.  Who's Driving?Today's Key Verses Mark 8:34-37 Calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, “Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to saving yourself, your true self. What good would it do to get everything you want and lose you, the real you? What could you ever trade your soul for?
