If you’re like most aspiring artists, then you’ve probably experienced that make-or-break moment when meeting someone new… I call it the “what do you do?” moment. It’s the moment when someone asks you what you do and you either tell them that you’re an artist of some form or you tell them about your day job.

And if you’re like most aspiring artists, you feel too guilty introducing yourself as the artist you truly are because you feel like you don’t really deserve to be called an artist. Whether you feel that way because you haven’t reached a professional level yet, because you aren’t spending a lot of time practicing your art, or because you’re not confident talking about your work yet is irrelevant … the point is you’re telling people about your day job.

This Young Man that I am spotlighting today, goes by the name of “Ghostwryter”. I set out to capture the man behind this name and to help support those who are grinding consistently trying to make a name for themselves. Read what he had to say below.

He has a new single out on Itunes titled, Indecisive. Be sure to support his work by purchasing this new hit.

Speak To Your Mountains

tumblr_mh5ey4j0WO1qhmhdfo1_500

And Jesus answered them, Truly I say to you, if you have faith (a firm relying trust) and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, Be taken up and cast into the sea, it will be done.” (Matthew 21:21, AMP)

We’ve all had seasons when the challenges of life feel overwhelming. During those times, it’s easy to be tempted to talk about how bad things are. Maybe you received a bad medical report, or maybe you’re facing a financial obstacle. The more you talk about something, the bigger it becomes in your mind. Instead, you’ve got to dig your heels in and say, “No, I am not going to give life to that defeat. I am not going to speak sickness over myself. I’m not going to speak lack. I’m not going to speak fear. I’m choosing a different report. I believe the report of the Lord which says, ‘I can do all things through Christ. I can defeat this sickness. I can break this addiction. I can have peace in my home. I can see restoration in my relationships.’ ”

Remember, even if you don’t see how things could ever work out, God does. You’ve got to speak His Word over those mountains in your life and declare favor over those situations. Instead of talking to God about how big your problems are, talk to your problems about how big your God is! As you speak to your mountains, they will be moved, and you will walk forward into the victory God has prepared for you!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Father, I declare that I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. I speak to the mountains in my life and say, “Be moved!” I declare blessings, favor and victory over my future in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Keep Dreaming

tumblr_mewyd5nmmL1qhmhdfo1_500

“So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit” (Galatians 6:9, The Message).

Everyone has God-given dreams and desires. We all have goals we want to accomplish and situations we are believing will be turned around. Sometimes it seems to take longer than we originally thought. Sometimes, things don’t work out the way we planned, and it’s easy to lose enthusiasm. If we’re not careful, we’ll get discouraged and end up just settling where we are. But God doesn’t want us to settle, He wants to take us higher. But many times, people miss out on God’s best simply because they give up too soon. They don’t realize how close they are to their victory.

Friend, don’t let that be you today. Don’t give up just because things seem hard. You’ve invested so much, and you never know, just a few more days of believing, another few weeks of doing the right thing, another few months of staying in faith, and you could see that situation turn around. Remember, God is on your side! Keep standing and keep believing because you are closer than you think to fulfilling every desire He’s placed inside of you!

Rain Rain Rain

“Oh, that we might know the Lord! Let us press on to know Him. He will respond to us as surely as the arrival of dawn or the coming of rains in early spring” (Hosea 6:3).

God promises that He is near to those who call upon His name. It doesn’t matter where you are or what you’re going through; He is your deliverer. He’ll bring light into your darkest hour; He’ll bring rain into the dry places; He’ll bring restoration and healing to the broken places. When you call on His name, you can be assured that He will respond. As sure as the sun will rise tomorrow, God will faithfully respond when you seek Him.

Sometimes, people think they have to clean themselves up or change their behavior or habits before they can turn to Him, but that’s not what God says. He is ready to receive you just as you are. Even if you feel like a mess, He’ll take your mess and turn it into a message. His arms are open wide today. Open your heart and call upon Him. Press on to know Him and His goodness.

God’s Timing

tumblr_men18vX7f01qhmhdfo1_500

“For the vision is yet for an appointed time…though it tarries, wait for it” (Habakkuk 2:3, KJV).

As many of you know I am a author in my own right. I have published 4 book so far. And as sit this morning pondering should I be further along then where I was brought to the above familiar scripture; Habakkuk 2:3. God has an appointed time to fulfill the visions, dreams, and desires in your heart. Just because it has taken a long time or because you’ve tried and failed doesn’t mean it’s not going to happen. Don’t give up on those dreams! Don’t be complacent about pursuing what God has placed in your heart. Our God is a faithful God. No matter how long it’s been, no matter how impossible things look, if you’ll stay in faith, your set time is coming.

Remember, every dream that’s in your heart, every promise that has taken root, God put it there. Not only that, but He has every intention of bringing it to pass. Hold on to that vision today. Declare by faith, “My time is coming. God is working behind the scenes on my behalf. I will fulfill my destiny!” As you continue to hold on to that vision and speak life over your dreams, it won’t be long before you see them begin to take shape. You’ll see your faith grow, you’ll see your hope strengthen, and you’ll see yourself step into the destiny God has prepared for you!

What God Did For Job?

Nothing says “suffering” like the story of Job, a wealthy man who lost everything he had gained: cattle, money, home, health, and children, yet one thing he did not lose was his integrity. We know he prayed regularly, and fasted too, but still, everything was taken from him. We cannot help but feel for Job, when we read about his losses and the overwhelming sorrow and distress he experienced.

We have to notice this, though, about Job: He refused to let wealth–or the loss of it–affect his relationship with God. The enemy seized on every opportunity to remind him of his situation: “Look at your bleak, hopeless life!” But Job did not allow the Devil to infect him with that thought. He held firm. His fervor to worship and serve God was intact. He had no intention to stray.

As human as the rest of us, we know Job passed through moments where he felt betrayed or angry about his affliction. At one time, his grief and pain were so severe that he had deep regrets that God had ever let him be born.

After this Job opened his mouth and cursed the day of his birth. And Job spoke, and said: “May the day perish on which I was born, And the night in which it was said, ‘A male child is conceived.’ May that day be darkness; May God above not seek it, Nor the light shine upon it” (Job 3:1-4).

However, Job determined that he wouldn’t turn away from God even if more chaos came along. When his wife, whom he looked to for support, pressured him to denounce God, Job knew he’d have to stand alone. His friends’ approval didn’t matter. Obeying God had become his only priority. Job knew that a strong commitment to righteousness is more important than instincts and that compromise leads to your own demise. Job also discovered that when the righteous think they are all alone, the Lord is already there with them.

What we can learn from Job…
Man is dependent upon God his maker to give him the abundance of all good things.
Materialistic goods are only for temporary comfort and not for heavenly rest.
You can’t always rely on others; sometimes they are “fair-weather” friends and desert you when the going gets tough.
God has certain walls He won’t allow the enemy to get beyond–Satan could only attack Job to a point.
Patience, faith and trust in God bring deliverance.
God understands human conditions and emotions, and He is sympathetic when we hurt.
The kingdom of God is not based on earthly goods but rather on Spirit living.
God has a perfect plan for your life regardless of detours along the way.

We all know the tests Job faced, but sometimes we forget to focus on God’s deliverance. At the end of Job’s suffering, God gave Job more than he originally had. Some of us might have been tempted to give up on God, but Job was planted by water and firmly rooted. His connection to God withstood infirmities. He remained steadfast. He had a valley experience on the way to the mountaintop, but the mountaintop was all Job saw. He refused to see his valley condition because he fixed his eyes on God. When we do the same thing, the valleys will cease to have any power over us.

When we find ourselves obsessed with our condition, we must look to tomorrow and not just focus on the here and now. That’s how Job overcame. He saw God and not his literal situation. Isn’t it ironic that the material goods were of little comfort to Job? He couldn’t find comfort in his friends or his wife. But he knew he could wait on God.
