Stories by pastor Michael Angelo Bosch

Thursday 05/19/17


Today's God's moment is called LIFE'S COMPETITION "
Reading from the book of 2 Timothy chapter 2 verse 5 and it says"
And athlete is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules"
And the book of 1 Corinthians chapter 9 verse 25 says"
An athlete exercises self control in all he does"
He does it to receive perishable wealth but God's wealth is unperishable.

And I'm saying this to say "
This new week stay focused work to the best of your ability, stick to the rules and work towards your goal but always put God first because in the end your reward will be greater than you expect.
Take this thought with you and be blessed "

Today's God's moment is about ROLL MODELS"
Reading from the book of Isaiah chapter 48 verse 17 and it says"
Thus saith the Lord your redeemer the holy one . I am the Lord your God who teaches you to profit and leads you in the way you should go "
And the book of Psalms chapter 32 verse 8 reads"
And the Lord said:
I will guide you along the best path for your life . I will advise you and watch over you"
And I'm saying this to say "
Imagine having Bill Gates in person at your disposal to guide you into becoming wealthy or Michael Jordan mentor you in sports or your favorite rapper in the music industry or any rich & famous person you admire?
Well we have at our disposal anytime we call and confide in him the Lord God himself!
The most high
Most powerful
All mighty
God above all God's
King above all kings
Creator of all things telling us directly in his words that he will guide us direct us and teach us how to profit while leading us in the way we should go so that we can not fail!
So every morning before leaving your house read aloud these words from the book of Psalms chapter 143 verse 8
Dear Lord
I put my trust in you"
please show me in the way that I should go
.
Take this with you al and be blessed"

Today's God's moment is about SHARING KNOWLEDGE "
Reading from the book of Mathews chapter 5 verse 16 and it says"
In the same way, let your light shine before others so that they may see your good works and give glory to your father in heaven.
And the book of Romans chapter 12 verse 13 says"
Contribute to the needs of others and show hospitality"
And lastly the book of Proverbs chapter 3 verse 27 says
Do not withhold good from those who need it when you have the ability to help.
And I'm saying this to say "
Stop blocking your blessings by denying your brother the knowledge someone else shared with you "
And remember : Like the Dalai Lama once said
Share your knowledge - it is a way to achieve immortality "


Monday 05/16/17

Today's God's moment is about welcoming a new week so this Monday we read from the book of Ephesians chapter 6 verse 11 and it says "
Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.
And while doing so Remember God's blessing throughout the week reading from the book of Numbers chapter 6 verse 24 through 25 and it says"
May the Lord bless you and keep you
May the Lord make his face shine upon you"
May the Lord be gracious unto you"
May the Lord lift up his continuance upon you and give you peace"
And I'm saying all this to say :
Like the book of Romans chapter 6 verse 31 says"
If the Lord is with us who then shall be against us?
May you all have a blessed positive productive week"

Today's God's moment is dedicated to MOTHER'S DAY"
Reading from the book of Proverbs chapter 31 verse 25 through 30 and it says"
A mother's strength & dignity shows even in her clothing and she laughs at times to come and the teachings of kindness is in her tongue.
She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness"
Her children rises up and calls her blessed and her husband also and he praises her ways"
Other women are excellent but a good mother surpasses them all.
And I'm saying this to say"
You should show love and appreciation to your mom every day but especially on this day, remember everything a mom go's through for her children and household so this Sunday 05/14/17 roll out the red carpet for your mom.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

Let each one of you look not only to his own interest but also the interest of others"

And I'm saying this to say:
Learn to duplicate yourself.
Share your knowledge and extend your hands to others and remember"
what you do today will improve your tomorrow"
Take this thought with you and be blessed.


Thursday 05/11/17


Today's God's moment is called USE YOUR TIME WISELY & REALISTICALLY'
Reading from the book of Eclesiastes chapter 3 verse 1 through 8 and it says"

For everything there is a season , and a time for every matter under heavens "
A time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to pluck up what is planted.
A time to kill and a time to heal, a time to break down and a time to build up , a time to weep and a time to dance, a time to cast away stories and a time to gather stories together , a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing"

And the book of Colossians chapter 4 verse 5 say"
Walk in wisdom , making the best of your time.

And I'm saying this to say"

Using your time wisely reminds me of this story"

A man walked to the top of a hill to talk to God.

The man asked, ?God, what?s a million years to you?? and God said, ?A minute.?

Then the man asked, ?Well, what?s a million dollars to you?? and God said, ?A penny.?

Then the man asked, ?God?..can I have a penny?? and God said, ?Sure?..in a minute.? lol

And the moral of that story is'
Use your time wisely , plan and prepare for tomorrow and be realistic about your goals and outcome.


Tuesday 05/02/17

Today's God's moment is called YOU ONLY GET OUT OF IT WHAT YOU PUT INTO IT"
Reading from the book of Proverbs chapter 20 verse 4
If you're too lazy to plow don't expect a harvest.
And the book of 2 Corinthians 16:7 say"
Be strong, let not your hands get weak and your work shall be rewarded.
And I'm saying this to say"
GOD WILL GIVE YOU BLESSINGS IN ABUNDANCE BUT YOU HAVE TO PUT IN THE WORK FIRST.

take that thought with you and be blessed'


Monday 05/01/17


Today's God's moment is about WEARING YOUR BLINDERS"
Reading from the book of Proverbs chapter 4 verse 25 through 27

and it says"
Let your eyes look directly forward and your gaze be straight " ponder the path of your feet then all of your ways will be sure,

Do not swerve to the left nor the right , keep looking straight ahead and turn your feet away from evil / negativity.
Meaning in a horse race so that the horse does not get distracted they put blinders on him so that he can just focus straight ahead and so we humans must also wear a spiritual blinder so that we can stop getting distracted by things that have nothing to do with our goals in life and remember what the book of

1st Corinthians chapter 14 verse 33 say"
For God is not the author of confusion but of peace
And I'm saying all this to say "

TURN ALL OF YOUR WORRIES INTO WORSHIP AND WATCH GOD TURN ALL OF YOUR BATTLES INTO BLESSING"

Take this with you and be blessed"

Saturday 04/29/17


Each one of us was born differently . Each with our own set of personalities and a set of circumstances and many battling our own demon's working to escape a past or hide their problems , some bigger than anyone can imagine so we move away thinking that the demonds will stay behind , we try to hide the fears of our problems with a smile or create a facade to block it or cover it up" some even camelfluage it by resorting to substance abuse because they can't weather the storm of their problems but the book of 2 Timothy 1 -7 says God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power love and self control.
Now think about that chapter for a minute" It says God gave us the POWER to change any circumstances in our lives and he taught us love by making the alternate sacrifice to give us a second chance and so we should also love ourselves enough to want to make a sacrifice for ourselves and display self control to change our circumstances but we do not have to weather the storm by ourselves " for the book of Psalms chapter 107- 29 says he will calm the raging storms and make the waves quit
And I'm saying this to say "
Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm is coming but rather than run from the storm the eagle fly atop a mountain or high tree and sits and waits for the storm to come , and when the storm arrives he will not fear the storm but he sets his wings to the winds of the storm and allow it to lift him up above the storm, so while the storm is raging below the eagle soars above the storm!
He didn't escape the storm he used it to lift him up higher than the storm"
So again I'm saying all this to say :
When your storm arrives don't let the storm overcome you but use it to soar above the storm and remember while God helps you calm the storm he also gave you the power to change the storm

Today's God's moment is about self change and transformation :
Reading from the book of Romans 12: 1-2
I appeal to you therefore by the mercies of God , present yourselves and your bodies as a living sacrifice acceptable in the eyes of God , do not conform to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind that by the test of life you will understand the will of God in knowing what is good acceptable and perfect.
And I'm saying this to say"

Today's God's moment is about BACKSTABBERS "
Reading from the book of Mathews chapter 7 verse 3 through 5 and it say"
Why do you look at the speck in your brothers .eye but do not notice log in your own eye?
And then the book of 1,Peter 2:1 says
Put away all malice deceit hypocrisy envy hatred and slander.
And I'm saying all this to say "
Work to take care of yourself and be careful who you trust or open up to and remember what the following picture below say"

Since we humans are easily distracted by this one weakness then today's God's moment is about GOSSIPING "
I want to read from the book of Ephesians chapter 4 verse 9 and it says" let no corrupting talk come of of your mouth but good talk to be used only to build others up and bring grace of those who hear"
And the book of Romans chapter 16 verse 17 said : I appeal to you my brothers to watch out for those who cause division. And create obstacles among you contrary to our teachings"
And I'm saying all this to say:
Did you ever witnessed or got involved in a fight over what someone said to later find out that what you heard was wrong?
And because of it you or someone else got hurt, went jail or even died !!
Just because someone used you as puppet to pull your strings and have you do their bidding or entertain them or fight their battles without you knowing it, then later after the deed is done you find out it was a a set up, a lie!!
So let me end this God's moment with a poem called MY NAME IS GOSSIP "
My name is gossip and I have no face"
I have no morals no style and no grace"
I make problems with husbands and wives
And I'm really good at destroying your lives"
I'll destroy your dreams and also your visions"
SHOOT! I don't even have respect religion "
I've placed people in shame & fear"
And I'll even destroy your jobs and career "
People enjoy every from beginning to end"
And I'll even make enemies of your best friend "
So before you decide to utter my name "
Remember to YOU! I will do the same:
So if it ain't true ..
Don't say it...
If you're not sure...
Don't repeat it!!
Hey yo!!!
My name is gossip "

Take this with you and be blessed"

Today's God's moment is about LEADERSHIP
Reading from the book of Hebrews 13-7 and it says"
Remember your leaders..
Consider the outcome of their ways and imitate their faith.
And the book of Jeremiah 3:15 says
And I will give you shepherds / leaders after my own heart and they will give you knowledge and understanding.
But then the book of 1 Timothy 3:5 says
For if someone doesn't know how to manage their own household how then can they manage God's church or God's people?
The Webster dictionary defines the word leader as someone who can rule guide inspire , lead by example. They can manage direct and control situations.
So I'm saying all this to say in our direct sales business we rely on the general public to give us sales and get us paid and amongst our crew you only advance or grow when training grooming and developing new people in the business, it's a each one teach one concept.
Every stage we go through in this business determines your growth.
You are evaluated by your ability to show leadership for example as first a trainer then a room leader a single footer car handler crew staff member etc remember there is a huge responsibility with managing and handling company funds and they must know they can entrust you with that huge responsibility therefore in the book of 1 Corinthians 13:11 it says"
When I was a child I spoke as a child, I understood as a child I thought as a child but when I became a man I put away my childish ways"
You can't continue to act and do the things you do and expect positive productive progressive change"
So once again I'm saying all this to say
Stop waiting on a leader and look in the mirror! !

 Today's God's moment is about WEAKNESS "
We have all gone through and experienced problems on a day to day bases but we as adult human beings must learn to be strong.
Paul saw the sacrifices that Jesus made for mankind and decided to use that as an example to live by and stay strong so he wrote in the book of 2 Corinthians chapter 10 verse 12
For the sake of Christ I shall endure
Weakness
Insults
Hardship
Persecution and calamities,
For when I am weak I become strong! !
So regardless of what Paul went through he didn't get weak or fall by the waste side or threw the towel in or ran around crying and complaining, he weathered the storm stood strong and covered the ground he walked on.
Therefore we who will not go through half of what Paul went through should not allow things to easily distract us or make us weak"
For example on our crew and this happens on college campus job Corp the military or any traveling organization more than 70% of your problems is your association "
There's an old saying that go's
ASSOCIATION BRINGS ON ASSIMILATION "
Meaning who you associate with in the end will be who you become.
For example there is this story of an 8 year old girl found in the Indian Forrest by some hunters believed to be abandon by her parents when she was an infant probably thought she would be devoured by the wild but instead she was raised by a family of monkeys and when they found her she walked sounded acted and ate like a monkey because that's who she associated with for 8 years "
Our mom use to say show me who you walk with and I'll tell you who you are "
If you associate with has beens losers or bums one day you'll become one yourself.
The book of 2 Corinthians chapter 6 verse 4 says "
Do not be equally yoked with unbelievers '
For what relationship or partnership does a righteous person have with the unrighteous? ?
And what fellowship has light to do with darkness?
Meaning you can't continue to hang with someone negative and expect something positive in your life!!
Over 88% of what we go through in life we create and so our answers are self explanatory but many are in denial or refuse to accept the truth suffering of delusions of grandeur because it's easier to find excuses and point fingers than blame and correct ourselves "
So again I'm saying all this to say :
Never let a bad situation bring the worse out of you'
Choose to stay positive and be that strong person God created you to be"

Take this thought with you and be blessed

In speaking with one of our crew members we spoke of certain trails tests and setbacks that was weighing heavy on this person's mind and in also knowing that we all go through our own trails and tribulations, God last night directed me to the book of James chapter 1 verse 2 through 4 which reads"
Consider it pure joy my brothers and sisters whenever you face trails of many kinds because you know that the tests of your faith produces perseverance so let it finish it's work so that it may make you mature and complete and not lacking for anything "
AND I'M SAYING ALL THIS TO SAY :
We as parents understand that you can not give an infant child something of value because they won't appreciate nor understand it.
We also can not give a baby solid foods until they're ready for it.
Neither will we let or allow our children to walk to and from school alone until they're ready and understand street lights laws, how and when to cross, learning their streets patterns and landmarks the possible dangers etc
They can't even drive a vihichle until they take the test and prove they're ready so God as our father also puts us through certain stages and tests to prepare us the next stage of our lives
So again I'm saying all this to say "
GOD PLACES OBSTACLES ALONG OUR JOURNEY TO PREPARE US FOR THE BLESSINGS THAT AWAITS US IN THE FINISH LINE "

Take this thought with you and be blessed "

Today's God's moment is about ARGUING & FIGHTING "

WE unfortunately live in a society of hostility anger rage and hate and so we must be reminded of our actions and consequences "
In an otherwise intellectual society we are judged by our actions which reminds me of a female friend who worked at a mental institution during the evening as a case worker and one night she got into it with one of the patients and it turned into a back & forth headed argument, it was during shift change and the graveyard security crew was just coming in when they looked at the monitors they saw the loud shouting argument going down so they ran over to that floor restrained them both medically sedated them and put them in separate rooms, the following morning they realized they medicated one of their own but they did nothing wrong because they were trained that the only ones hustle argumentative or combative are the mental patients and the staff the opposite. And if you're in court working to explain and defend yourself and YOU are the loudest hyper aggressive and sound combative then to the judge you're the guilty one, and in urban communities for us minorities, even if you're in the right and you're involved in a neighbor dispute road rage or defending your child , if you are the one aggressive shouting screaming and arguing loud when the police arrives in the hood they will TAKE YOU DOWN!!! restrain you and sometimes it gets rough so we need to practice self control and patience.
The book of Proverbs chapter 17 verse 27 & 28 says"
Who so ever restrains his word has knowledge and he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding, even an uneducated man who keeps his silence is considered wise , for those who keeps their lips closed is deemed intelligent.
And I'm saying all this to say "
Arguing back & forth with each other is like two dogs barking at each other between a fence" they will bark til the sun go's down and no one will win and nothing gets accomplished because arguing with a fool only proves one thing" It takes more than one fool to participate in stupidity "

Take this thought with you and be blessed.
