Good Morning, Mighty Woman of God!

I pray that you are all blessed and highly favored of the Lord Jesus Christ.  I speak blessings of peace and restoration into your life. 

"As soon as" - - - I have heard this so many times.  I have ministered and prayed with a lot of people on the street and after prayer would them to visit the church.  They look at me and say, "I will as soon as I get myself together".  Without Christ there is no "as soon as".  The church is for you and the church is for sick people.  It is not a place to come once a week to show off your new garments or hats.  It not a place to come to visit your girlfriend and catch up on all the gossip and it's definitely not the place for you to go to meet men.

If I had waited for the "as soon as" in my life, I would probably be dead.  I had to get to church, I had to get to Jesus.  When I first started attending church, I was damaged, on drugs and sick.  There was no way I would have made it if it were not for Jesus reaching down in the depths of hell and saving my soul.  You can keep sitting around waiting for the "as soon as" to happen in your life, but I promise you it will never happen without the Lord.

I saw a movie once and there was a man in church for the first time.  He was tired of the constant sinning and drugs and decided he wanted a change in his life after 20 years of doing nothing but spending time saying "as soon as". 

During alter call, he laid his drugs on the alter and begged for God's forgiveness, all of a sudden, a woman comes up to the alter and shoots him dead.  At the end of the movie, he was talking and he said, "I was getting my life together, I was making a change, I just needed more time, I just needed more time". 

You see, we never know how much time we have.  You do know what time the club closes, you do know what time the bar closes, you do know what time you need to leave that man's bed, but do you know how much time you have before Christ returns for the saints of God.  Do you have enough time or do you just need a little bit more time?  Are you still saying, "as soon as".  Don't you know how valuable your life to Christ is?  If you don't, let me tell you.  He died so that you could live, not live it up.  He's calling you today, and you don't have to wait for Sunday to walk to the alter.  He's calling you into restoration.  Restore your relationship with Christ today.  Give your life to the Lord today and let Him take care of the "as soon as" part.  LET UP PRAY!

Heavenly Father, I give you honor and praise today for my very life.  Lord, I pray for your strength in my area of weakness.  Lord, I pray that you take away the "as soon as" out of my mouth that I may run to the alter just as I am.  Lord, I know that I am a sinner and I pray that you forgive me for my sins against you.  Thank you Lord for dying on the cross for my sake.  Now Lord, I give you my life, in Jesus name, Amen.
