Be blessed

           Doing it God's Way!                 

                                                 With Reverend Michael Cartwright 



"What keeps us from God's best!"

Good Cop/Bad Cop?  Img21.png

"A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all."  (Psalm 34: 19)

"God reached deep down into my bitter and condeming heart and showed me that as long as I kept doing it my way, judging others through their troubled times, that I will always be at a place of mediocrity. He promised me that if I trust Him and do it His way with a pure and compassionate heart, showing others His unconditional love and His life of total forgiveness. He will always bless me throughout my destiny. God has kept that promise and He wants to do the same for you."      Reverend Michael Cartwright    


"Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are."           - Dale Carnegie

I often think about the true story not long ago of the highway patrolman who always carried a pocket tape recorder with him on the job. Just like any other day he gave a traffic ticket to a woman and then she quietly drove away. Little did the officer realize that this day would not only be different from the rest, but that it would be a life changing experience that would soon test his faith in God as well as with many others. 

The woman that received a ticket that day had filed formal charges of being abused by this officer. The woman swore he abused her out on the highway and was willing to go to court over it. Fortunately the officer was able to play back the tape recorder and it played a big role in helping clear the officer of the shocking charges filed against him. The woman was seriously admonished by the judge for falsely accusing the police officer.

What if the police officer did not have the tape recorder as evidence to clear his name that day? Where would his rock solid proof of innocence be then? Surely his life would have taken a much greater turn for the worse. Could his department risk such a scandal? The woman seemed so convincing. She did swear he abused her out on the highway, and was willing to go to court over it.

Would his character be judged or his integrity questioned throughout his career or lifetime? Would he have missed out on future promotions that he so rightly deserved? Or would his social standing at his church suffer?

And what about those of us who pass out "our personal brand of hypocrisy by judging everywhere we go," causing division and destruction among the Church and this person's life?

Our actions of judging other believers brings only God's judgement on ourselves, and none of us are worthy to be judged by God. We also end up separating ourselves from Almighty God and His blessingsSo why do we keep on judging others, especially in their troubled times.

Do we join in the judging of others so that other people won't be so busy looking at our own lives under a microscope? And if they do find something, whether true or not, do we ask them to show us the mercy and forgiveness that we so easily deny others.

Then, because our hearts are so hardened, how soon we forget to glorify God for this wonderful person, for all the years of his hard work and integrity. And how quickly our memories dismiss all of the countless good deeds that he has done up to the tragic moment of this woman falsely accusing him.

Soon our conscience no longer reminds us that what we're really doing is Satan's work for him. Do we honestly believe that God's going to bless us for judging others?

Let's just hope we don't judge and discipline our own children and family members by shaming them this way. Have we been so shamed and hurt so great in our past that our only personal joy and gratification now is to "kick a person when their down?" While there at "the very lowest moment's of their life?" Just when they needed us the most! .

What would have happened if the police officer did not have the tape recorder that day and he was still exonerated in court? How many of us would still have gossiped behind his back, saying the court system failed the woman who said he abused her? 

Would we do what God expects of us? Would we truly repent and ask for this persons forgiveness and become spiritually stronger from this? 

When it is our time to leave this world, what worthy "spiritual legacy" will we be leaving behind for our loved ones and for others to follow? Will it be teaching others on how to prosper by  glorifying God in everything that we say and do?

Will we have taught them that there are no such thing as accidents or coincidences in our lives; that each person that is going through the "fires of adversity" in their life is being used and shaped for God's greater design that are sometimes beyond our own understanding. 

Or do we become a obstacle to God's Will and purpose by doing Satan's work for him. By playing Satan's favorite game thats guranteed to to break up the unity of other believers as well as God's heart. "The game of shame!"

This heartless and cruel "game" helps insure anyone who is going through their own "fires of adversity" were their already fragile faith in God has now become even more brittle.

Do we embrace them with our love and support,

Or do we try to strip them even further of their remaining spiritual strength and dignity by purposely not sharing with them God's spiritual truth and His promise that,

 "I will never leave you or forsake you." (Hebrews 13:5)

And just in case this person had any hope left, do we try to present this person with Satan's favorite dessert, "The icing of hate" on his "cake of destruction", all the while making sure we have given  this person extra portions by denying them our support of unconditional love or the healing power of being totally forgiven?

And when we finally made sure that this person had no one or no place to turn to for support, except maybe the fleeting comfort and cold embrace of one of  "Satan's very own care package's of alcohol and drugs," that would literally guarantee them the lasting benefits of  "The sorrow of divorce" and maybe even take more "Casualties of innocent lives" along the way since by now they should be driving while under the influence.

Satan, with all his wisdom and the father of all lies, will try to reason with us that if we really wanted to help God out by making the world a better place. That we can start by helping get rid of all the people in the world that are trash; people who we judge as not as good as the rest of us; and that God in His infinite wisdom will understand and forgive us.

Just think back for a moment if the highway patrolman never carried a tape recorder with him. What a field day we could have had with him. How easy it would have been to justify in our minds that he's not as good as the rest of us.

 We could have been completely convincing to the highway patrolman that he had brought such great shame and scandal to anyone wearing a uniform, to his family and friends, and let's not forget the community.

The things that we might have said  to him; that God does not love a sinner like him and that God is punishing him because he is unworthy to be forgiven and unfit to even live; nobody will ever miss trash like him.

Would he do the "dignified" thing like the millions of others who have come before him, and choose to end his useless and miserable life by seeking the eternal comfort of Satan's all time favorite "Death by shame?"

No one really knows the exact moment and time when our death will bring us face to face before God on judgment day.

What will our contribution be worth to God as He judge's us on that fateful day?

Surely God will be just and fair on judgment day by asking each one of us questions like...

Did you get to know my loving son, Jesus?  Even though the world was filled with so much hate and violence, He still said that He wanted to go to you. He said that His message was far too important to wait.

All my Son wanted to do was to show me that He was right! That you would make a difference!

He said that you knew that He protected and covered your back so many times throughout your life.

He said that you knew that if He ever carried a wallet, that your picture would be in it.

Tell me, did you try and help protect my Son from those who falsely accused Him and then judged Him?

Did you know they tortured my precious Son through the night and then with His last remaining breath, He asked me to forgive them?

Did you know at anytime, My son could have sent 10,000 angels to destroy the world to save Himself? But He said that He wanted to go alone and to show you that His message of unconditional love and sacrifice will forever change your heart and save your soul!

Tell me, as a Father, that I was right in sending my only Son to be crucified to shed His precious blood for you.

Tell me, was my Son right, believing in you?

Did you help out the highway patrolman, and others, by showing them compassion and mercy, at the very lowest moments of their lives.

The ones that my Son Jesus, had sent you?

"God blesses those who are merciful, for they will be shown mercy" (Matthew 5:7)


"You see, God does not want us to just care if we go to Heaven. He want's us to care if everyone else goes to Heaven, too."

What does it take to change the bitter and judgmental heart of a person to show compassion and mercy to those in troubled times? At what point in our life do we become accountable in filling Church pews and decide not to do Satan's work for him by creating division and destruction among God's believers.

Did not Jesus lead by example by showing us a pure heart of unconditional love and a life of total forgiveness? Remember how excited Jesus was when He first shared with you the wonderful story of His Mercy and Grace and how He left his entire flock to save just one lost sheep?

Remember what He said? " that you were worth it!"


"He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love." 1 John 4: 8

"A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this all men know that ye are my diciples, if ye love one to another." (John 13:34-35)

"[There is]  therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the spirit." Romans 8:11


"God believes in you"

Reverend Michael Cartwright


We cannot be continually blessed by God if we do not believe and honor God's Words below and the people in law enforcement who live by them. May we honor all those who live by this code.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13 KJV)
