With this in mind, we always pray that our God will make you worthy of His call. We also pray that through [His] power He will help you accomplish every good desire and help you do everything your faith produces.  2 Thessalonians 1:11 God’s Word Translation

If you are born again, YOU ARE THE RIGHTEOUS OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS!!! And whether you know it or not being righteous is powerful.  It gives you rights!!!  You have a right to be healthy. You have a right to live a whole, full long and abundant life that is vibrant and active even into old age. But what about those dreams and desires you have inside.  The thing that just won’t go away.  The thing that may not seem very spiritual but it brings you great joy and you light up when its brought up in a conversation.  Whether you know it or not these are things that your faith is producing.  “Well Brother Vincent, I want to raise horses. That does not seem very spiritual.”  That’s what you think.  Have you ever heard of the book or movie The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien?  Mr Tolkien was a Christian and is even deemed responsible for leading another well known author and Christian to the Lord, C.S. Lewis.  Many of his designs and characters such as Middle Earth came from a life long love of trees, beings he brought to life in his stories.  What does this have to do with The Lord?  Everything.  Even after your born again God may shape but he does not change your personality because it is part of the ‘weirdness’ He designed you with to bring to the world.  Many people are shocked to find out that the word weird means supernatural.

Today many people have given up their weirdness to assimilate and be like some supposed celebrity or star.  I use the word star very loosely because many of the people that are called stars are not and I do not say this based on talent.  What is the most outstanding and noticeable element of a star, a real star in the sky?  It has light!!!  The origin of the word weird means  having the power to control destiny.  Your weirdness has the power to control your destiny and because you are righteous you are to live by faith and when you do Poppa, God the Father releases His Power to help you accomplish EVERY GOOD DESIRE and help you do EVERYTHING YOUR FAITH PRODUCES.  J.R.R. Tolkien did not set out to make some epic story. He simply wrote what was in his heart, not what he heard from someone else.  Take joy in being you.  Honor God by honoring your own uniqueness.  Know that your desires are good and that you have been granted the power and permission to bring them to pass.  As I often say, don’t take my word for it, take The Word for it.

The desire of the righteous is only good… Proverbs 11:23 King James Verison

…but the desire of the righteous shall be granted. Proverbs 10:24 King James Version

God’s Word Who is Jesus says, that the desire of the righteous is only good and that that desire is granted.  So believe Poppa to help you accomplish every good desire and to help you do everything your faith produces. AMEN, AMEN and AMEN!!!

All the blessed to you!!! Shalom!



  1. Thank you, Vincent. This gives me something wonderfully WEIRD to think about today. And, I didn’t know what weird meant, either. I often wonder about the very thing you wrote about today. Sometimes I don’t feel like what I want to do or what I think about is very spiritual or has anything to do with bringing anyone to God, or saving souls -so to speak. But on the other hand, all I desire about my life is being able to have full time, leisure time to have a balanced life to do the work of my joy – paint, write, and anything creative I feel like I am inspired to accomplish.

    So, thank you for writing this and for bringing it to my attention. I must rush off to work now, but as I said, you have given me something to contemplate and hold me up today. All blessings to you and the work of YOUR joy, my friend.
