When the praises go up the blessings come down! Even in the midst of confusion, when the praises go up the blessings come down! Even in the midst of thunder and lightning, when the praises go up the blessings come down! We serve an awesome God who does not sleep and does not take a vacation. We serve a God who is always looking out for His children, and He is worthy to be praised. God is so good that we should not let anything keep the praises from going u! Praise Him because He is worthy!



Good day to you all! God is speaking to you in many ways, but you have to know how to listen!

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20

Upon reading the title of this article I donít want you to be concerned about my mental health. This is not a declaration of my insanity. I am writing to you today with all of my senses in place, yet I tell you that I have lost my mind. I tell you this because when it comes to some of the things that I used to do, if I were to compare them to the things that I do today, the old me would think that I was crazy. The old me would be ready to lock me away in a padded room. It was Jesus who made the difference. Understand that when you follow Jesus closely you do things that are not what the world expects. You love the ones that the world does not want. You feed the ones that the world says not to feed. You listen to the ones that the world says should have no voice. When you are in step with Jesus you are out of step with the world, so it is a good chance that if you are following Jesus and the Word of God the world is going to give you some funny looks sometimes. It is not your fault. When you dedicated your life to Jesus, you took your old mind away, and got a new mind. You too have lost your mind.



Dear Reader I want to encourage you to lose your mind. Your mind may be conditioned to this world. Your thoughts may be conformed to the way that this world thinks. However, God will throw away what is old so that He can create what is new. When you are born again everything is new. So when you forgive someone that has done the unforgivable, or when you love someone who has called you an enemy, it may seem like you have lost your mind. Well, Dear Reader, I dare to say that you have lost the mind frame that you once had, and it has been replaced with the thinking of Jesus Christ. Jesus forgave in the middle of pain. God is faithful to us even though we are not always faithful to Him. It is ok to step outside the box, and do some things that you normally would not do. When you smile at the ones that seek to harm you, or when you pray for the ones that curse you, it may look funny to some people, but to God it makes perfect sense. Dear Reader do not let anyone lead you back into your old way of thinking. You can let them know that you may have lost your mind, but your new mind is better than ever! Celebrate the new you! Celebrate the freedom of salvation! You are no longer chained to the ways of the world. In the name of Jesus you have lost your mind, but your new mind is much, much better! Follow Jesus example Dear Reader, and bless someone today!



You are beautiful, loved, and blessed



John Reed
