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:

WHERE ARE YOU?

Stop blaming me for where you are today.

Stop blaming me for what you allow me to do.

Stop blaming me because you don’t know who you are and you let what I said affect you.

Stop blaming me for not living up to your expectations.

Stop blaming me because your dream is still so far away.

“LIFE” happens to everyone. You’re not special because “IT” happened to you. You don’t deserve more attention because “IT” was difficult.

Don’t get upset with me because I didn’t pay “IT” enough attention.

We can always find an excuse to not do what we’re supposed to do.

We can always find a reason to not move forward. BUT, reality is no one can stop you, except you.

No one can kill your dream, except you. You are the reason you are where you are today.

You are the reason your life does not seem to have any value. You are the reason you’re bitter and continue to hold on to grudges.

You are the reason because you cannot see YOU for blaming others, looking for excuses, or finding a reason not to.

I don’t know about you, but I believe God put a lot of thought into making me. He gave me everything I need to be more than a conqueror in all things.

What did He give? He gave me Jesus! I declare, I can do all things because God gave me everything I need.

Stop blaming me, throw away the pity-party invitations, get rid of the excuses! Where are You? Make the decision today to let everyone see YOU.

You have everything YOU need to shine, shine, shine!

THURSDAY MORNING PRAYER:
Lord, You are good and Your mercy endures forever! We worship You for Who You are! We praise You because we declare You are good all the time. You are merciful all the time. You are loving all the time. You are forgiving all the time. You are an awesome God all the time. You are the Great I Am, everything we need You to be all the time! Thank You Lord for this blessed day You created for us to shine. We’re shinning because greater are You Who lives in us than anything that is in this world. You’re greater than any problem that may surface. You’re greater than any sickness that may be revealed. You’re greater and we trust Your greatness that lives in us. We will magnify You in all and over all, trusting You to manifest Your presence in our life. We declare by faith family relationships will be mended, bodies will be healed, lives will be delivered, doors will be opened, and the doors that mean us no good will be shut tight forever. We’re excited about this day, praising You in advance for the first day of the best days of our life, in Jesus Name, Amen.

TUESDAY MORNING PRAYER:

We praise the Name of Jesus! Thank You Lord for waking us to see another beautiful day. Your faithful hand has supplied all our needs, just like You said You would, thank You. We pray each one will remember today, You are faithful, You’re always there and You always keep Your Word. We thank You Lord for giving us wisdom and knowledge, but help us remember to use our wisdom and knowledge wisely by acknowledging You first, in all we say or do. Help us remember the words of the songwriter, “O what needless pains we bear all because we don’t carry everything to God in prayer.” We pray each one will remember we have a friend of Whom we can expect great things. You are a mighty God and the best decision we can make today is to trust Your faithful hand to continue to lead, guide, direct, inspect, instruct, correct, provide and protect us through it all. We expect a mighty move from our great God in our life today, in Jesus Name, Amen.

TUESDAY MORNING PRAYER:
All praises be to the King of kings and the Lord of lords, You are wonderful! Thank You Lord for another beautiful perfect day. It’s perfect for love. It’s perfect for obedience. It’s perfect for letting our light to so shine. It’s perfect for letting the world see You through us. Lord we will not waste this perfect day bringing negative actions and having negative thoughts. We will not waste one minute of this day thinking about yesterday. We will not waste a second fussing, arguing or complaining. We will use this day to allow You to get glory out of our lives. We will use today to work on our vision. We ask special prayer for Quincy Stewart, Sheila Jordan’s family and Ms. Sybil’s sister. We give You praise in advance for a mighty move from You in each life. We are also asking for prayer for our Annual Leadership Conference which begins tomorrow; that God's Anointing would fall, enabling all participants to go forth accomplishing the "Greater Works" of John 14:12, in Jesus Name. As we do, we will rejoice and be glad, Amen.

FRIDAY MORNING INSPIRATION:

CAN WE AGREE?

Can we come to an agreement today?

Can we agree it’s alright if we don’t agree?

Can we agree you’re not always right and neither am I?

Can we agree who’s right and who’s wrong should never overshadow the love we have one to another?

Can we agree sin is sin, there is no big or little? Which simply means, you didn’t do what I did, but you did something.

Can we agree no one should be on a pedestal?

Can we come to an agreement today?

Can we agree my purpose is not greater than yours, and neither is yours greater than mines?

Can we agree it’s time to let go of what I did and what I assumed you did?

Can we agree today is a great day?

Can we agree we have no time to waste today on what happened yesterday?

Can we come to an agreement today?

Can we agree the anger you feel is not just about what I did, but you had your part in it?

Can we agree the hurt and betrayal I feel is not just about you, but I messed up too?

Can we agree it’s time to stop pointing the finger and take a look in the mirror?

Can we agree it’s time to be honest about what we see when we look in the mirror and stop blaming others?

Can we come to an agreement today?

THURSDAY MORNING PRAYER:
We praise You Father because You woke us up to a brand new day! We praise You because we believe miracles are coming our way. Today we will celebrate life! We praise You because we have another chance to say yes to Your will. We speak to sickness, discouragement, failure, let down, worry, doubt and disbelief, commanding every weapon that has been formed against us to move out the way, in the Name of Jesus! We declare by faith no weapon formed against us shall prosper. We are children of the Most High God, we win! Today is the first day of the best days of our life and we’re excited. We shout out, hallelujah Jesus for this great day filled with victory after victory, in Jesus Name, Amen.

WEDNESDAY MORNING PRAYER:
Our Father in heaven, we thank You for waking us to see another day. It is a new day You created just for us to glorify You. Be glorified in our smiles today. Be glorified in our laughter today. Be glorified in our speech today. Be glorified in the steps we take by faith today. We pray each one will recognize what it means to live, move and have our being in You. Help us to remove “I can’t” from our vocabulary. Give us the courage to get rid of “I’m scared” and replace with “I can do all things through Christ Who gives me strength”. Bless each one to come to know Your Word in such a way that we can replace our words with Your Word, and keep standing. It’s time to step out and move forward and today is the day. We declare today to be, “No More Excuses Wednesday”. The world is waiting on our purpose and we’re moving out by faith, in the Name of Jesus, Amen.

TUESDAY MORNING PRAYER:
Bless the Lord, O my soul and all that is within me, bless Your holy Name. You’ve done great things, thank You! You’ve done marvelous things, thank You! You are an awesome God and we bless Your holy Name! It’s another day’s journey and we’re glad about it. We praise You for Your faithfulness in our life. We have had setbacks, but You’ve always given us the strength to comeback. We’ve experienced disappointment, but You’ve always opened doors to allow us to see it’s not over. We’ve been hurt, broken, and experienced failure, but You’ve always brought us out stronger, better and wiser. Great is Your faithfulness! We offer praise to You because we know You are the same God yesterday, today and forever; So we trust You to keep doing what You’ve always done. Thank You Lord for being our faithful, loving, merciful God. We’re going forth today being all You designed us to me. We pray each one will do what is needed today, no slacking, no quitting, no giving up, and no complaining. All that we do today we will do our best to glorify You. Be glorified in our lives today, in Jesus Name, Amen.

MONDAY MORNING PRAYER:
Lord we thank You for life, health and strength. We thank You for food, clothing and shelter. We thank You for Your love, grace and mercy. We’re blessed, we’re blessed, we are blessed!!! Thank You Lord for all You’ve done for us. We pray each one will take the time today to count our many blessings. We pray each one will take the time to share a smile. We pray holding on to grudges becomes less important, and sharing love one to another becomes more important. We pray for families all over the land. Mend relationships, heal broken hearts and give strength and courage to forgive. Help us to take the time today to see what’s important; and spend less time on the things that should not matter. We give You praise in advance for a day full of love, laughter and peace, in Jesus Name, Amen.

FRIDAY MORNING INSPIRATION:
Will you take the same steps today as yesterday? Today does not have to be routine, change a few steps, take new steps.
DAILY ROUTINE: Wake up, wash face, brush teeth, make coffee, shower, get dress, pour coffee, leave for work. Does it have to be this way, everyday? Have you considered you’re often bored because you keep taking the same steps today as yesterday? Change a few steps, take new steps.
With a routine there is no room for new steps. There is no room to dream. How can you be creative if you have to make the same steps today as yesterday? You were created for a purpose, what steps will you take today that shows off your purpose? How will the steps you take today glorify God?
The steps we take each day are important, but if we keep taking the same steps today as yesterday, where will we end up, other than where we were yesterday?
Step out, do something today you keep saying you’re going to do. Step out, register for that class. Step out, begin writing the book. Step out, finish the song. Step out, ask for the raise. Step out, turn the application in. Step out, finish what you started, then start something new. Step out, do something different today, change a few steps, take new steps.
