Changing Face of Compton

fireworks3
Compton is a great place to live, work, and raise a family. It is home to almost 100,000 citizens. Known as the “Hub City” because of its unique position in almost the exact geographical center of Los Angeles County, Compton is strategically located along the Alameda Corridor, a passageway of 25 percent of all U.S. waterborne international trade. Compton is rapidly emerging as a large industrial center in Los Angeles County for transit and distribution, business services, high technology, home and lifestyle products, metals, financial services, and textile manufacturing.

FRIDAY MORNING INSPIRATION:

HOW WILL TODAY BE REMEMBERED TOMORROW?

How will what you do today be remembered tomorrow?
The things you say today, can a child repeat tomorrow?
You are living your legacy now, will anyone talk about it after you’re gone?
How will the work you’re doing now speak for you in the future?
Why are you here? Does anyone know?

Will your children be proud after you’re gone because so many have so much good to say about you?
What will people remember about you?
Will God be able to say, “This is my beloved child, in whom I am well pleased?”

If you’re living your life for you now, after you’re gone, there will be no one left to talk about you.
God has given us all we need to give people something good to say about us, and He in turn be glorified.
What are you doing with the gift God gave you to use?
We owe it to our family, friends and especially our children to use our gift; but more importantly, we owe it to God to appreciate the love He placed within us. There is no better way to appreciate God’s gift to us, than to use it to establish our legacy. Will they be able to say, “She/he lived so God could use them?”

How will you be remembered after you’re gone? Or, are you satisfied with, “She/he came, she/he lived, she/he’s gone….that’s all we remember.” Living your life should be more than, “I had fun”, “I did what I wanted”, or “I got everything I wanted”. What an example to provide for your children! . . . attitudes like that are selfish and probably the reason our world is in the shape it’s in now.

How will you be remembered after you’re gone? You don’t care? Your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews care, shouldn’t that be reason enough for you to care? Live life today so someone will have something good to say about you tomorrow.

TUESDAY MORNING PRAYER:

Good morning Jesus! We bless Your holy Name! This is the day many celebrate Valentines Day; people will hear, “I love You”, candy will be given, flowers will be sent and nice dinners will be enjoyed. We’re thankful for this day, but with You, every day we hear, “I love You”. With You, every day we are blessed with the gift of life. With You every day we are showered with blessings. Thank You Lord for being our Lover every day; we pray each one will know how truly loved we are, and because of You we can experience love every day. We pray for those who are sad today, lift up their head and help them to see, You are the King of Glory, and if invited in, You will give peace that will outlast any candy, flowers or steak dinners. The joy You give is stronger than the biggest hug and can’t be touched by life’s circumstances and situations. We give You praise for this day, another opportunity to experience Your amazing love to us. We’re praying for Monica Shaw and family, asking You to envelop them with Your peace, and keep them reminded of Your promise to always be there . Bless each eye who reads this prayer with a praying spirit, help us to know the best decision we can make today is to talk to You about everything. You are the source of our strength, the giver of our peace and the lover of our soul….we offer praise to You, in Jesus Name, Amen.

MONDAY MORNING PRAYER:

O mighty God, how we love, worship, honor, and adore You! You are the only true and living God and we praise You for being alive in us. We thank You for the gift of life this day; we pray each one understands, if You didn’t say “breathe” we would no longer be here. We owe You praise for our life; our praise should be seen in our walk and heard in our talk. We pray each one will appreciate the Creator and Sustainer of all life this day, we pray our appreciation is noticeable to all. Open our ears that we may hear the direction You’re leading us and give us courage to say, “Yes Lord, I’ll go”. There is something You are calling each one of us to do, help us to say, “Yes Lord, I’ll do it”. Open our eyes that we may understand, the world is waiting to be blessed by the gift You planted in us. Help us to stop waiting on the “right time”, the right time is now. Now is the time to step out on faith and press. Now is the time to trust You, if You didn’t intend to use our gift, You would not have placed it there. We WILL trust You today, we WILL do something in the direction of purpose today. We will: reach beyond our comfort zone, let go of pride, dismiss fear and believe we can do all things because Father, it is You giving us the strength. We give You praise for the first day of the best days of our life, in Jesus Name, Amen.

FRIDAY MORNING INSPIRATION:

HOW DO YOU VALUE YOU?

When others see you what do they see? Do they see how much you value you? How do they know you are The King’s child? How do you carry yourself? Are you known as a “loud mouth,” someone who won’t take no **** from anyone? What you “show” is how you will be treated.

How people treat us matters…why do I keep getting hurt? Why do I keep ending up in situations I know I’m not supposed to be in? Why don’t they like me? Where is my respect…why do I have to demand it? What you “show” is how you will be treated.

If you’re not approachable, you will not be approached. If you don’t show yourself friendly, you won’t have any friends. If you don’t show love, why are you looking for love? What you “show” is how you will be treated.

Do you value your “stuff and things” more than you value you? It’s noticeable when you value your car, house, clothes, jewelry, shoes, TV, etc…but how can anyone notice how much you value you? What is so special about how you treat you? Do you treat you respectable? Can respect be heard in your talk? Can it be seen in your walk?

We are “The King’s” children, a Royal Priesthood, it should be noticeable. God values you so much, He thought you were worth saving. He values you so much He made only one you…you’re unique, one of a kind. He values you so much He placed a special gift in you to use for His glory. How can anyone see how God values you? If you don’t “show” it, “they” will never know. Or, maybe you don’t appreciate your value . . . how do you value you?

WEDNESDAY MORNING PRAYER:

O Lord our God, thank You for smiling on us. Thank You for giving us this day all we need. You are the joy of our salvation, the peace of our mind, and the love in our heart; thank You for being all that You are to us. We're so glad about this day and we purpose in our heart to rejoice all the day long. We're praying for Lawrence Ford, asking for Your mighty healing touch in the Name of Jesus. We're also praying for Geary Faggett as he prepares to enter the operating room, we know You're already there, asking You to make Your presence known in a powerful way. We thank You in advance for Lawrences' healing and Geary's successful surgery. Bless each eye who reads this prayer with all You know we need. Give us a praying spirit and a trusting heart. You are the author and finisher of our faith, and we trust You will complete the good work You began in us. We pray You use us to make today better. We give You praise in advance for a great day. Father, get Yourself glory using us this day, in Jesus Name, Amen.

TUESDAY MORNING PRAYER:

O mighty God, we bow before You to worship and adore You. You are our risen King…our faithful God…our loving Savior…our true Friend; without You our life has no meaning. We thank You for opening our eyes to this new day. We thank You for giving us all we need to be victorious today; help us to use all that You have provided. Help us to remember in every situation, prayer is a powerful tool. We pray one for another, open our eyes to truth….more than anything, we need a closer walk with You. More than any relationship, we need a relationship with You. More than stuff and things, we need joy, we must have Your peace and we thank You for Your unconditional love to us always. Father, we surrender our life to You, use us as a channel to be a blessing to Your people. Use us to add light to dark places. Use us to give a smile where sadness seems to prevail. Use us to make someone’s life better today. Help us Lord to let brotherly love continue; give us the courage to forgive and let go. Help us to not react, but rather respond in love. Knowing You are our source, we know we win today, in Jesus Name, Amen.

THURSDAY MORNING PRAYER:

O Lord, our God, we worship, praise, honor and adore You. We thank You for opening our eyes to see this great day, help us to keep in mind You made this day, so there is nothing about this day You cannot handle. Nothing that has happened, is happening, or will happen, took You by surprise; You knew we would be hurt, You knew we would be disappointed, You knew we would get discouraged, You knew we would fail, and You still let it happen. We pray each one understands as quick as possible, if we trust You through it all, You will show us, all we went through was necessary to get us where You purposed us to be. Help us to know trusting You through it all draws us closer to You and our testimony becomes, I’m stronger, better and wiser; not because we can handle things better, but because we trust You more to handle it ALL. You are the Source of our strength, peace, joy and love, give us the courage to rely on our Source. We lift those who are confused about Your way, those who struggle with Your way, and those who refuse to do things Your way; we pray their eyes of understanding be opened and their will line up with Your will. We pray today be the day we trust You more. We pray today be the day we praise You more. We pray today be the day we do something in the direction of our purpose. We pray today be the day we choose to rejoice and be glad, no matter what, in Jesus Name, Amen.

TUESDAY MORNING PRAYER:

Oh how we love You Jesus. Oh how we worship You, Heavenly Father. You are: holy, righteous, omnipotent, love, just, patient, merciful, omnipresent, You know all, see all and can do all. We praise You Father because there has not been one day in our life we had to live without You. We worship You because even when we didn't recognize or respect Your presence, because of Who You are You never stopped loving us. Today, You blessed us with another new day, another chance to show the world how much we love You; we pray each one appreciates today and purposes in our heart to share You with all we come in contact with. We pray the works we do today and the love we share shows all how much we love, honor, and appreciate Your presence with us today, We ask for the release of Your Healing Virtues in and upon the life of our dear sister Phoebe's Mother; Thy Will o Lord be done, and Thy Grace rest upon the entire family, in Jesus Name, Amen.

FRIDAY MORNING INSPIRATION;

DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING BETTER?

Before you say that, do you have something better to say? Don't settle for the lie, the truth is better. Don't stoop to the gossip, speak words that bring life, that's better. Don't tare people down, build up, encourage, that's better. Before you say it, ask yourself the question, "Do I have something better to say?" If the answer is "yes" say it!

Before you do that, do you have something better to do? How will what you’re thinking about doing better you? Will it help someone else? What good can you say tomorrow about what you did today? Stop wasting time doing stuff you will regret, what's the point? Do today what will matter tomorrow. Before you do it, ask yourself the question, "Do I have something better to do?" If the answer is "yes" do it!

Before you go there, do you have somewhere better to go? Don't go there if going there will take you back to where you were delivered from. If "there" is not better than where you are, stay home, it's safe there. Before you go there, ask yourself the question, "Is there somewhere better I can go?" If the answer is "yes" go there!

You don't need me to check you, check yourself! Govern your life by the questions you ask yourself…BEFORE you say it, do it, or go there.

Oh yea, don't trust your answer, run it by God before your decision is made, He knows NOW how it will affect your tomorrow. Trust what God knows and you will always experience better.
