As I sit in my rocking chair thanking God for life, health, strength, and His Grace and Mercy...... I cannot help to rejoice at the fact that the Lord has not only kept me daily..... BUT THROUGH ANOTHER YEAR AS WELL! (Won't He do it). With tbe excitement of a new year also comes reflection on the year past. I've never been one to go public (on social media) with resolutions or what not because my ambitions, goals, habit breaking, and life adjustments come thru my prayer life. See God doesn't laugh and wait for you to fail like man, He encourages us to stay steadfast and to constantly humble ourselves so that He may grant us the desires of our heart. I BELIEVE HE CAN AND I KNOW HE WILL! On behalf of On God's Side Ministry We wish you all a Happy New Year and we pray that you keep God first allowing Him to do exceedingly and abundantly above all that we could ask of Him. BLESSINGS ............ Minister Andre Flanagan

I used to sit in the very back of the church, eyes blood shot red high as a kite and full of all kinds of liquer falling asleep as the music and singing went forth. Ultimately I was awake ed by the silence as the pastor prepared to preach. The more he talked the more offended I became because it seemed like everything he was saying was about me! Angrily I walked out of the sanctuary and did not return to a church service until three years later. I had no idea what conviction was until I got saved and began to walk in my calling...... little did I know that it would be the very thing that would keep me humbled and rooted to serve God for the rest of my life. One thing I can relate with is that when we are in the deepest of our sins we misunderstand that God speaks to us thru His faithful servants and laborers but we allow the enemy to give us a mindset to take Heavens words and commands with discouragement and anguish. God loves us so much that He allows his righteousness to always be available to us..... so instead of allowing the world to condemn us allow the spirit to set us free, break the chains of sin, and give us the treasures that come along with our devout service to the Kingdom. Just like the apostles and the preacher I encountered, We too are The Messengers of Christ.....
Don't Shoot! WE COME IN PEACE AND LOVE FROM JESUS. As much the word heals it also cuts!
I can remember not to long ago feeling so beat down by the labels that the world had put on me like saying I was a thug, a drugdealer, a drug user, a whoremonger, a criminal, and a disgrace to my race and to society. Honestly I helped fuel all fire to the derrogatory outlook that was placed on me by living out of the will of God. I began to believe that I was what called me...... Then I discovered that I was made in His Image (God) The bible told me in the book of Duetoronomy
that I am the head and not the tail..... above and not beneath.... more than concquers thru Christ Jesus..... WHO SAID IT, GOD SAID IT!!!! and I recieve that Word, run with it, and will not looked back. I encourage someone today to walk into your calling and be what God intended for you to be ..... and that's greater because of He that is in you! Remember as Long as our Father said it, it will not come back void...... PEACE AND BLESSINGS from TEAM OGS
An I be honest? YES! I'm guilty.... as much as I minister in the gospel, I still find myself notlf not always displaying "The attitude of grattitude" in every situation or circumstance I face. I thank the Lord for His correction that knocks me off my high horse and allows me to realize that for as much as I have been delivered from. ..... I am still a work in progress.....
Scripture says :
The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever. He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.
Psalms 103:8-13 ESV
There is a song that says "Raise both hands up... if ya know ya got haters" The reason I love this catch phrase is not because the physical and mental obsticals that my fleshly man endures but because my spiritual man is surrendering to God's will with my hands are raised to the sky trusting The Lord to guide me thru ALL ADVIRSITIES!
Are your haters making you frustrated? Do your haters make you wanna retaliate? Well how about instead you let your haters motivate you....... Don't be discouraged,be encouraged! We were not fearfully,and wonderfully made by our Creator to allow the enemy to use weaker vessels as a road block on the path that leads to your destiny in Christ. Remeber....... It's all a test,and even if you fail..... our teacher in Heaven gives us ample opportunities to pass. #BLESSINGS
Psalms 27:1-14 ESV
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When evildoers assail me to eat up my flesh, my adversaries and foes, it is they who stumble and fall. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident. One thing have I asked of the Lord , that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple. For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will lift me high upon a rock. And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me, and I will offer in his tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing and make melody to the Lord . Hear, O Lord , when I cry aloud; be gracious to me and answer me! You have said, "Seek my face." My heart says to you, "Your face, Lord , do I seek." Hide not your face from me. Turn not your servant away in anger, O you who have been my help. Cast me not off; forsake me not, O God of my salvation! For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the Lord will take me in. Teach me your way, O Lord , and lead me on a level path because of my enemies. Give me not up to the will of my adversaries; for false witnesses have risen against me, and they breathe out violence. I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Wait for the Lord ; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord !
If You believe it.......... You can achieve it
If You sew bountifully..... So shall You reap
If You trust in The Lord......... You will not fail
Continue to seek Him first saints....... And watch every desire of Your heart be met...... Sincerly THE ENCOURAGED FAITHFUL SERVANTS AT ON GOD'S SIDE MINISTRY
