Here you will see a list of sayings...

I hope you enjoy them, Holy Spirit inspired:
If you have or know of a saying, let me know so I can post it.


A. What is love? I am really trying here, GOD! I can only think of it as how to treat a baby. Treating myself and everybody around me like my very own baby. With compassion. A gentle touch. To comfort, to be nice, and leave the room instead of snapping when I am about to loose it. Holding on because they are my own child instead of giving up (I guess this partially applies because some people drag me away from you and my child would not). Show me this gentle love.

Your word states that everything is useless with out love. Faith, hope, and love are the only things that last forever; that the greatest of these is love. Show me the things of forever. Make them a reality in me. Please hurry! Make haste!

I pray this in your name Jesus!

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


1. It is better to reach out
and fail,
than it is to have doubt

and rebel.

- Apostle Joseph Pickell.


2. We must have a mindset that we are five years old towards God. He is the parent that will handle the issue. He is the Dad we go to when we feel things are not fair, unbearable, or like they will never end. We must let go of the misconception that we can handle everything in our lives. Our Father is there to help us just like children go to their parents when there is something that cannot be solved or needs fixed.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


3. God is wonderful and only wants to raise us like His very own children. Many feel privileged, God is not allowed to do that to me. But his limits and boundaries are typically different than our expectation of how far He will go to keep us in His love.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


4. Grace is simple. It is abundantly available to those who seek God in spite of who they are. God meets that person where they are but expects that person to keep coming back to where they met.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


5. Only oneself can get in the way of God blessing them. The blessing is in the brokenness of a person. When God starts to change the person, he changes the circumstance, too.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


6. If there are more like me, will women be cared for or appreciated?

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


7. Selfish people don't think about the future. They expend everything in the present.

-Edward Hindson


8. I have noticed my dreams reflect my heart and what I put in their. What television shows, music, text, conversations, thoughts not controlled that lead to sin while awake, and all that stuff that puts stuff in our heart. Our heart is what cries out to God for a solution on our behalf. The heart is where our everything else can infect and polute. Then out of our heart, the mouth speaks. The mouth speaking takes a process that goes through the mind. The mind is where our dreams come from. What we put in their will be compiled to our hearts desires (godly or evil) and played out in our dreams.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


9. I want to bear fruit. So much that others come and pick from the tree. The fruit is sweet and a delight. They continue to come back and get there fill again, and again. With my roots in Jesus' teaching, fed by God's light, and watered by The Holy Spirit. To stand out and be an example amongst all the other trees.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell

10. Ladies,
If you want a real man, find one that is Godly! Not one labeled a Christian, Catholic, but one that is deeply in love with Jesus. Because that man will treat you like Jesus treats them.

Men,
The same applies.
-Apostle Joseph Pickell


11. Happiness is granted,
Joy is earned

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


12. My relationship with my circumstances is a lot like having a business mindset. I cannot take the problems personal. The Devil throws it all at me but Jesus stands up and says, "That is my brother you are messing with! Get under his feet Satan." I seek The Trinity and slowly, Jesus' command, manifest itself from the spiritual to the natural.

You see, when Satan comes at me, I post messages on social portals that will help you get closer to God. It is a war. Devil screws with me and my family (wife, kids, and you all) I throw punches back. If I have helped at least one of you then I know the hit was right on Satan's face. Keep coming back and let me make a punching bag out of our enemies face!!!

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


13. Don't ever give up. Your best stories will come from your struggles. The seed of your success is in your failures. Your praises will sprout from your pains. Bend if you will, cry if you must, but keep standing. We have never seen a storm that lasted forever. Seasons change so does your life.

-Rina Emano-Atasan


14. Yes. Feeling the Spirits presence with me is a gentle tingle that starts in my Spirit (at the bottom of my Sternum). It is just like the wind Jesus spoke about. If I have a thought I know is not from God. That tingle and a warmth goes over my body (a true feeling of peace) and the though, that may have cause a negative emotion, disappears along with the negative emotion. Like now when I type this message Holy Spirit keeps pouring his presence on me. I have notice lately people around me keep getting the chills as the world calls it when they do not understand. The chills, if that person continues to seek the Spirit, will feel the warmth. If the persistence of draw closer to God occurs, you will start to see signs of the Spirit overflowing from you to others. I can tell if a person  has been saved by being around them long enough. The Spirit reaches out and touches them.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


15. I love when people share their major concerns with others (in moderation). I cannot stand when people state, "Blessed are those who suffer but do not say anything." We are supposed to lift each other up, encourage one another, and help each other through hard times. How can we do that if we are encouraging others to shut up, sit down, and be blessed? This statement is a simple cop-out for a person who does not care.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


16. "Be still and know that I am God" is not about doing nothing. It means to seek Him and seek the Spirit to have peace in any situation. Yes, even in situations where peace seems impossible.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


17. God,

Life has been a struggle. For the first time we are able to stand in true faith in our current circumstance. We have truly given it all to you. We know what might happen if things do not go the way we want. But we are willing to accept this. Because we know that you will work out the situation for our good. No matter how bad it might get.

 From the bottom of our heart,
 Your people.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


18. Miracles happen, even today
If we will continue to pray

We have to seek Him every chance we get
Even in hard times, go to Him with your fit

Believe we can have and know all this is true
God will be there and come through for you

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


19. When I go to God, I find peace from all the negative feelings life brings. A warmth, a love, and a restful feeling that makes all the other stuff okay. I look at my burdens and see Jesus standing on the other side of my cross. He looks at me and says, "Brother. I am here for you. We together can do this. I know you are tired, I know you are weak, and I especially know all that makes it seem impossible. You are going to be okay. You can do it. I love you."

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


20. God shows favor to those who seek. He pulls things together. If watched (requires patience to watch something), you can see his hand move. The key is consistency in three things:

-Seek God through easy and hard times (worship, study, conversation).
-Resist the sins God reveals to you that need to stop. He will show the one.
-Keep going no matter what!

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


21. Those who reject me shall stand before God. When Jesus is there to advocate our sins. Will he turn his head because that person never knew him?

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


22. Your relationship with God is what matters, he will take care of the other matters.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell.


23. Keep seeking after God! Every millisecond He seeks for you.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


24. The way he holds me and kisses me. Buys me dinner and brings it to me on a .....no no. Keep that special time to yourself. Just like running off to girlfriends and complaining about their man too. It turns all her friends against him. So when she goes to those friends for advice, the advice will be polluted with bitterness and judgment. So to much bragging and gossip can have the same result on the relationship.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


25. Working on life can seem so overwhelming, but know your friend is behind you. He makes life the best thing a person desires. Just know he is your brother who made this awesome relationship with God possible and the intimate connection with Holy Spirit available.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


26. A loss is not just in death but a choice of one or more people who lost hope in the relationship

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


27. They say to keep your friends close and your enemies closer. I think the Devil actually obeys this rule.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


28. Why do people do what they do. Because of free will and some due to ignorance of Jesus and his disciples' instructions. Hang in their brother ans sister. What troubles you, He will make better.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


29. One should self reflect and not self project.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


30. It is better to be honest and hurt than to lie and loose trust.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


31. I may have done wrong, but I can do right from now on.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


32. I love God's mercy, and religion is a way of bending the word to suit an unbiblical lifestyle for which God has no mercy.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


33. I have learned being honest with my kids, pushing myself to constantly improve, is the best way to teach them about life. This includes faults and success. Only my pride will cause me to lie.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


34. If you know you're right, speak up; otherwise, keep your mouth shut.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


35. One of the things I may never understand: A dominance steps back to allow equal opportunity but the other party takes advantage of and reverses the situation completely, recreating the same problem.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell


36. The love of Jesus is amazing. Why do people not like his love. Because it comes without accountability. Things get tough. We fail Him time after time. He still has open arms. He desires us to come. He desires our fellowship. He wants to hear and listen to us. If we are mad, hating the world, or even mad at Him from not understanding his ways. He is still there. He wants to help us understand why this life is here and what this life is for.

-Apostle Joseph Pickell
