Lyrics from Greater is coming by Jekalyn Carr

An olive has to go through three stages, for its oil to run:

It has to go through the shaking, the beating, and the pressing

And just like the olive, some of you may have felt like you go through the shaking, the beating and the pressing.

You've went through all of that for your oil to flow Now, your greater is coming...
If it had not been for the shaking,
I never would have been ready for the making, no

If it had not been for the beating,
I would have never knew how anointed I would be.

If it had not been for the pressing,
I wouldn't be able to walk into my destiny.

He's preparing me, preparing me, preparing me for greater...

I feel a shaking in the Spirit,
I feel a beating in the Spirit,
I feel a pressing in the Spirit,
Preparing me for greater...

I feel a shaking in the Spirit,
I feel a beating in the Spirit,
I feel a pressing in the Spirit,
Preparing me for greater...

If it had not been for the shaking,
I never would have been ready for the making, no

If it had not been for the beating,
I would have never knew how anointed I would be.

If it had not been for the pressing,
I wouldn't be able to walk into my destiny.

He's preparing me, preparing me, preparing me for greater...

I feel a shaking in the Spirit,
I feel a beating in the Spirit,
I feel a pressing in the Spirit,
Preparing me for greater...

I feel a shaking in the Spirit,
I feel a beating in the Spirit,
I feel a pressing in the Spirit,
Preparing me for greater...

Many are the afflications of the righteous,
But the Lord delivereth them out,
Of them all...

Because your greater is coming...
Greater (greater is coming)
Wanna let you know greater (greater is coming)

Hey, greater, yes it is (greater is coming)
Said I know that my greater is coming (greater is coming)

Can you just lift your hands and say greater (greater)
Is coming (is coming)
Eyes haven't seen (greater)
Ears haven't heard (is coming)
My greater is coming (greater)
My greater is coming (is coming)
Hey....(greater is coming)

I feel a shaking in the Spirit, God knows
Feel a beating in the Spirit,
I feel a pressing in the Spirit,
Preparing me for greater... 
(it's coming, it's coming)
Oh, my greater is coming (it's coming, it's coming)
Oh yeah, my greater is coming (it's coming, it's coming)
Yes it is, yes it is, I believe (it's coming, it's coming)

I feel it, I know that I know it's coming:
Greater anointing (it's coming)
Greater power (it's coming)
Greater destiny (it's coming)
Greater door (it's coming)

It's coming, it's coming (it's coming)
It's coming, yes it is (it's coming)
I believe it's coming (it's coming)
I know it's coming (it's coming)
Look out world (it's coming)
Here comes my healer (it's coming)
Look out world (it's coming)
Here comes my delieverer (it's coming)
Here comes my redeemer (it's coming)
My restorer, my waymaker (it's coming)
My breakthrough, my way out (it's coming)
My greater, my greater is coming (it's coming)
My greater is coming (it's coming)
Declare in the atmosphere (it's coming)
My greater is coming (it's coming)
I shall lack no more (it's coming)
I shall lack no more, my greater is coming (it's coming)

My greater is coming (it's coming)
I believe it, I believe it (it's coming)
I trust in you Lord, I trust in you Lord (it's coming)

You're preparing me for greater (it's coming)
Thank you for the shaking (it's coming)
Thank you for the beating, thank you for the pressing (it's coming)
Cause I know (it's coming)
My greater is coming (it's coming)
My greater is coming, you're pulling me through

He's preparing me for greater...
Oh my greater,
My greater is already here
My greater is already here,
I'm walking into a new season,
Oh, it's a new season
Oh, delieverance is here
Oh, it's already here
Oh, yeah yeah...

The Caterpillar and The Butterfly

A butterfly starts its life out as a caterpillar. There is a point in the caterpillar's life that it spins a cocoon and to the eye of someone looking at the cocoon the caterpillar looks to be lifeless but, when the time is right. The caterpillar transforms into a butterfly and flies from the cocoon.

My thoughts:

Much like the caterpillar in life there are times that we get tired or discouraged but, we have to know that with prayer and a focused effort to do better our lives will get better.

Do not look back and try to figure out why things in your life happened a certain way. Everything happens for a reason. Pray for forgiveness and then forgive yourself. Then trust and believe that Greater is Coming!

Psalm 31:1–5 Bible verses


1 In you, O Lord, do I take refuge; let me never be put to shame; 
in your righteousness deliver me!

2 Incline your ear to me; rescue me speedily! Be a rock of refuge for me,
a strong fortress to save me!

3 For you are my rock and my fortress;
and for your name’s sake you lead me and guide me;

4 you take me out of the net they have hidden for me, for you are my refuge.

5 Into your hand I commit my spirit;
you have redeemed me, O Lord, faithful God.

Philippians 2:14-16

14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

My thoughts: 

Everything will fall in the right place at the right time. Stay focused, stay positive and stay encouraged.

Second Chances

Luke 22:54-62 Peter denied he was a follower of Christ on 3 separate occasions.

Yet Jesus told Peter in Mathew 16:13-18, “And I say also unto thee, that thou art Peter and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." So even though Christ knew Peter would deny him 3 times he still built his church upon the truth that Peter knew and Peter went on to be one of his greatest disciples.

My thoughts:

There are times in our lives when we go against God's plan. We are human and God knows that at times we will fall short but, God also believes in the fact that we will find our way back to His plan. We have to believe in ourselves and know that no matter what we have done, we are given opportunities to get back to God's plans for us.

Forgive yourself and move on

John 3:14-18; John 14:1-3

Christ paid the price for my Sin and he prepares a place for us. In John 3 and John 14 we are told that God loves us so much that he is willing to give up his son so that we may have eternal life and that Christ prepares a place for us in heaven.

My thoughts:

Mistakes are made during your lifetime. Apologize to those that you have hurt, do not continue the behavior. God forgives you and in most cases those that you have done wrong forgives you. The most important steps are to forgive yourself and know that you are forgiven. Elimate the mistake and move forward.
