God Has Kept Me Here For A Reason

God has kept me here for a reason.
I survived because he has a plan for me.

All my bad supervisors,
the bad management choices,
the death of loved ones,
the back stabbing from my co-workers and church members,
the negative thoughts,
the lack of executive support;
I made it because I am blessed!

I release and let go of all past hurts,
misunderstanding and grudges
because I am blessed!
I recognize them as the distractions they are,
for God is all there is.
All else is  a lie!

Now give yourself a hug, wipe your tears and walk in victory!!!

Now since you are a true child of God,
you know that with every blessing,
a blessing is required!
So bless another, by passing this on.
IF YOU DO IT RIGHT,
GOD WILL BLESS IT RIGHT.
GOD HAS A WAY OF TURNING THINGS AROUND FOR YOU
AFTER YOU TURN TO HIM!

Have a Blessed Day!!!!!!!!!!

The 7 Ups

1. Wake Up!!

Decide to have a good day.
This is the day the Lord hath made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
Psalms 118:24

2. Dress Up!!

The best way to dress up is to put on a smile.
A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.
The Lord does not look at the things man looks at.
Man looks at outward appearance,
but the Lord looks at the heart.”
I Samuel 16:7

3. Shut Up!!

Say nice things and learn to listen.
God gave us two ears and one mouth,
so he must have meant for us to do twice as much listening as talking.
“He who guards his lips guards his soul.”
Proverbs 13:3

4. Stand Up!!

… for what you believe in.
Stand for nothing or you will fall for anything.
‘Let us not be weary in doing good; for at the proper time,
we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good…”
Galatians 6:9-10

5. Look Up!!

… to the Lord.
I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me”.
Philippians 4:13

6. Reach Up!!

… for something higher.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and lean not unto your own understanding.
in all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.”
Proverbs 3:5-6

7. Lift Up!!

… your Prayers.

“Do not worry about anything; instead
PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING.”

Philippians 4:6

God is in Control – A New Book by Joseph R. Mays

After years of setbacks and negative distractions, I have finally done something I wanted to do for a long time; . 🙂 My first venture into the publishing arena is called ““. In it you will find poems that will uplift you and caress your soul and let you know that those troubles you’re going through will not last forever. The enemy doesn’t want you to succeed, but with God you WILL succeed.

God is in Control

I hope meets your expectations and helps you in some way. Share it with a friend or co-worker. We all need encouragement from time to time and this resource is the perfect solution. I appreciate any and all support you can give. This will help me get past my current situation so I can provide a better life for my daughter Ashleigh. Help me so I can help many others.

Thank you and may God bless each and every one of my readers and followers.

Sincerely,

Joseph R. Mays

God’s Voice Mail

Most of us have now learned to live with voice mail as a necessary part of our lives. Have you ever wondered what it would be like if God decided to install voice mail? Imagine praying and hearing the following:

Thank you for calling Heaven

For English press 1
Para un Espanol mecar el dos
For all other languages press 3

Please select  one of the following options:

Press 1 for request
Press 2 for thanksgiving
Press 3 for complaints
Press 4 for all others

I’m sorry, all of our Angels and Saints are busy helping other sinners right now.
However, your prayer is very important to us and we will answer it in the order it was received.

Please stay on the line.

If you would like to speak to:
God, press 1
Jesus, press 2
To the Holy Spirit, press 3

To find a loved one that has been assigned to Heaven press 4, then enter the social security number followed by the # sign. If you receive a negative response, please hang up and dial 666.

For reservations to heaven, please enter John: followed by the numbers 3:16.

For answers to nagging questions about dinosaurs, life and other planets, please wait until you arrive in heaven for specifics.

Our computer shows that you have already prayed for today, please hang up and call again tomorrow.

The office is now closed for the weekend to observe a religious holiday.

If you are calling after hours and need emergency assistance, please contact your local pastor.

Thank you and have a heavenly day.

Good-bye.

May You Have….

Enough happiness to keep you sweet
Enough trials to keep you strong
Enough sorrow to keep you human
Enough hope to keep you happy
Enough success to keep you eager
Enough friends to give you comfort
Enough wealth to meet your needs
Enough enthusiasm to look forward to
Enough faith to banish depression
Enough determination to make each day better than yesterday

I Shall Not Pass This Way Again

Through this toilsome world,

Alas once and only once shall I pass.

If a kindness I may show,

If a good deed I may do,

to a suffering fellow man,

Let me do it while I can.

For it is plain,

I shall not pass this way again.
