Low Life Survival

How to survive the Valley

We all experience mountain tops and valleys throughout life. Valleys in life cause all sorts of issues.

There are easy ways to come out of your valleys.


Fear Nothing Bad 

  • Fear no Evil
  • Don’t be afraid because fear produces anxiety and bad results. Fear clouds your judgement. “God did not give us a Spirit of fear but of love and a sound mind.” 2 Tim 1:7

Know God is with You 

Carry one thought with you in the valley. “God is with me.”  God will deliver you out of the valley. It may be dark but God sees you and will guide you.


Recognize your Survival Tools (Use them to your advantage) 

Use God’s word and the Holy Spirit to guide you out of the valley. Trust Him and refer back to His words often.


Make your life is ready to receive the Blessing 

Sometimes you need to prepare the way of the Lord. Make it a priority to get your affairs  in order. Examine your motives and your agendas to assure they align with your desired results.


Luke 3 v 4 – 5

 4 As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet:

“A voice of one calling in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord,
make straight paths for him.
5 Every valley shall be filled in,
every mountain and hill made low.
The crooked roads shall become straight,
the rough ways smooth.


Is 40 v 3

 3 A voice of one calling:
“In the wilderness prepare
the way for the Lord[a];
make straight in the desert
a highway for our God.

Leaders forgive to Win

Forgiveness is hard especially for a leader who is doing the right things. It’s hard to forgive people in your organization when mistakes happen. It’s hard because you feel you are the leader and you do not have to forgive. You also feel that you were in the right. When you feel like this, you get mad. Maybe you don’t speak to the people. How can you lead it if you are not communicating? This builds inner anger. This inner anger will come out in all of your other discussions and directives. Angry discussions and directives lead to a path of futility.

Angry discussions and directives lead to a path of futility

Your mind plays tricks on you when unforgiveness creeps in. Your mind can cause you to replay the offense over and over again. Instead of forward thinking you are backward thinking. Forward thinking takes you to the top and backward thinking Leaves you stuck in the mud.

Forgive yourself

To forgive yourself you must dismiss all self-doubt. You are your biggest critic therefore, cut yourself some slack. Most of the time you are the only person that is offended. Let God correct you and do the instruction given to you. Unforgiveness can lead to a state of depression. When you find yourself in this place stay connected to positive friends and family. And also say positive things about you and your situation.

Colossians 1:14 in whom we have redemption because of His sacrifice, resulting in the forgiveness of our sins and the cancellation of sins’ penalty.

Pressure Bust Pipes


God will not put more on you

than you can bear

I didn’t know I was this strong

Didn’t know that I could stand this long.

Didn’t believe I could take so many punches

didn’t know trouble came in bunches.

my shoulders are broad

My chest is strong

but how much more and for how long?

Pressure bust pies, Watch mine swell

Pressure bust pipes, now what’s that smell.

It’s not me I know how to weld

God has workmen that are not for sell

Can these arms hold weight made for a crane?

Can these feet stop the speeding train?

That mountain has been spoken to

it still has not moved

Pressure bust pipes, don’t you like the action

Didn’t know life came with adverse traction

Going back…    to move forward just like the plunger

makes no sense to add more pressure to a clogged system.

If this is what I can bear than bring it on

my previous record is no wall, but gone.

Dislocated shoulder lots of back pain

one more push-up, so the kingdom can gain

Pressure bust pipes, I am starting to like what it has done

Making me focus on who is number one

Maybe He allowed it, or just knew

But what He put on, came out of the blue.

No complaints because His sovereignty is Supreme

Pressure Bust Pipes

too bad…

I’m a King.

Stress Your Mountain

Put pressure on your prayer


Life puts pressure on you that feels like a Mountain. You have to determine to stress the mountain of pressure if you want it to crumble. Without putting pressure on the mountain it will not be removed from you.

There are many situations that put stress on us. We believe these problems are insurmountable. Since God does not put more on us than we can bear. There has to be a way to remove and handle these seemingly unmovable challenges.

Speak the Word

The word of God is powerful to the pulling down of strongholds(2 Cor. 10v4). Therefore we must speak directly to the problem. Do not be afraid to put stress on the actual problem.

 Pray earnestly

The prayers of the righteous man available much(James 5v16). Pray to God that He helps you see the true underlying core root of the problem. Pray to God for a peaceful solution. Be thankful to God that He reveals your position in the fight. Pray that you have the strength to do the instructions that come from prayer.

Call a fast

Some things are only removed by prayer and supplication(fasting)(Mark 9 v 28-29). Calling a fast removes an object or action that is special to you. It may be possible that you have made this thing a God or idol in your life. And every time this thing comes in your mind, sacrifice it to the Lord, letting Him know that you are serious about putting stress on your mountain

Your faith makes you whole. (Luke 8 v 48) With the proper Word(scriptures), prayer and fasting the mountain will have significant stress. With patience the stress fractures in the mountain will cause it to be removed from you. The last step is to believe in your heart that these things are so.
Stress your mountain and your stress will be relieved. Stress your mountain and it will be removed from you. Be patient while you are dominating your mountain.

Father’s Day Patience

Good fathers see the in game

There is one good example of how a father should conduct himself. Fathers do themselves well to look to God.  As fathers we want the best for our children. We want ourinstructions and molding to take effect immediately. In the midst of training the reward seems fleeting.  Patients makes fatherhood palatable.

God has many different children with many different characteristics.God loves all his children for their unique characteristics.  He even express exudes joy when they follow Him and not the world.when his children seem to be disobedient or follow the incorrect he is ever steadfast waiting for their return. He has long patience for his children’s success.


So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart, and by the skillfulness of his hands.

Psalm 78:72

Take this Father’s Day to be thankful for the children God gave you. Make this Father’s Day a day of remembrance of the good times and celebration for the reward of love in the future. Fathers Day Patience strengthens you, and your children in the kingdom of God.


Eyes Up

When you are facing a problem that hurts your inner core. Just remember the command, Eyes up.

Sometimes situations get on your back and it seems that removal is impossible. The pressure even causes you to have a physical demeanor that makes you look like you are slumping over.
There are two things you can do in this situation look to the hills from which cometh your help. And anoint your head with the oil of joy. Below are the two scriptures you can hold on to during your trial or test.

Psalm 121:1-2 I will lift up my eyes to the hills—From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord,Who made heaven and earth.

Isaiah 61:3 To console those who mourn in Zion,To give them beauty for ashes,The oil of joy for mourning,The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;That they may be called trees of righteousness,The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”

Remember, no testimony without a test. May God get the glory out of all your trials.

When the thing is stronger than you

Jehovah Sabaoth


We all come to a place where we face a problem that seems bigger than our capacity to win. This place is especially difficult for leaders. Leaders train themselves to master difficult situations. Life will throw massive problems at you and God grins and says “is thing stronger than ME?”


David demonstrates how to call on God in a heavy situation. He also directs us on what part of God’s character to call on.

Jehovah Sabaoth.

Here is the passage as he is standing toe to toe with Goliath.

45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.

47 And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hands

When the thing seems stronger than you have to call on the God who is stronger than anything. Jehovah Sabaoth, (the Lord God of Hosts or the Lord God of The Angel Armies). Send the clarion call and God and all His Army of Angels will come and fight your battles.

Psalm 24

7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

8 Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle

When you call on Jehovah Sabaoth, the Gates and the Doors have to be lifted up to let all the Heavenly Help come down and fight your Battle.

Psalm 89 v 6-8

6 For who in the heaven can be compared unto the Lord? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the Lord?

7 God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him.

8 O Lord God of hosts, who is a strong Lord like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee?

The thing you are dealing with may scare you and degrade you. Put your Confidence in God. Place your confidence in the God of all things. Our God is ready to descend on your problems with a fury that can not be contained or defeated.

James 5

4 Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth

The book of James says this power and authority is not only available for leaders but the same God is watching over laborers in the field too. This is awesome because He assures everyone that believes on Him and calls Jehovah Sabaoth will be heard. God hears you and He sees you and He will send His Angel Armies to protect you and fight your Battles.

Pray for Alabama

Decision America Tour

“Do not forget to Pray!” is what I hear as I prepare for a brief business trip to Montgomery. What an easy request! I prayed a modest prayer . Business meetings lead to Business increase.  Our State Legislature is in session at the same time we planned this meeting. Directly related to the Alabama State Legislature meeting is Franklin Graham Decision America Tour rolling into town to Pray for Alabama. One of my business associciates travelled from a different state to participate in the prayer meeting. When he told me he was going to pray I heard again “Don’t forget to pray.”

Honestly, I did not have a clue of that any one else was praying for my State (Alabama), so this was a nice surprise. Not until I arrived in Montgomery did I understand that I needed to go pray at the Captiol too. Immediately after the meeting we headed up Goat Hill to pray. Now the boldness that God placed in me wants to pray on the star that marks the spot where Jefferson Davis was sworn as in as the United Confederate States president. God unites and uplifts.

When we got to the top I was impressed that an organization would plan an event that soul focus was to spread the Good News over AMERICA AND ALABAMA. That God impressed upon me to go and pray for Alabama cuases me issue a challenge to all the Dominators. Pray for your state and  other states but more importantly go where God sends you to pray. Warriors of Prayer unite.
