Storms of Life – Faith Pulls Through


Hello Everybody!

Today, I made a short Youtube video that looks at the life of Noah in the Bible. Trust me, it was not easy to make since I’m an amateur lol, but it was fun to make so I hope y’all like it! If the video appears to be a bit blurry when first viewing it, click on the “Settings” icon located on the bottom right corner of the youtube video and make sure that the Speed is set to “normal” and the Quality is set to “480p”. The video should run smoothly if you ensure that these settings are put in place first.  In any case, I did this just for fun so enjoy! 😀

The key factor for the miracles that you want to experience in your life lies in your Obedience factor.

How much do you trust God that when He points the direction (that will often times “not make sense”)?

Will you obey when He points the direction in where you should and ought to go? Obedience is not a simple exercise when thrust in the throes of uncertainty, but how else is one to build on faith?

It isn’t easy to step out of the familiar and walk into that which is unfamiliar and foreign territory for you; however, when you step out in faith, amazing things do happen. Your eyes will see things they’ve never seen before, you will experience things you’ve never experienced before and you will meet people you never thought you’d ever have access to before when you step out in FAITH. Breakthroughs happen when we step out in faith. The things that God will cause us to do may not always make sense, but when you Trust in your heart that you are heading in the right direction and are following His leading in obedience on the basis of your prayer life, you will see yourself experience miraculous breakthroughs that you never thought would be possible.

God speaks to us in so many ways, whether it be by dreams, deja vu experiences, visions, a series of confirmations from various sources, signs and wonders etc etc that you can’t keep your head inside the box. You’ve got to think outside the box. It is up to us to incline our ears to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to us who is the church.


Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.


Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. The one who is victorious will not be hurt at all by the second death.


Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give that person a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to the one who receives it.


Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

miracleDo we have an open ear and a receptive heart to obey the instructions that we receive? Ask yourself these types of questions today and do some self-inventory. People want huge miracles to take place in their lives but do not understand that in seeking such things, what is required is a huge amount of faith on the individuals part to simply obey instructions to receive the miracle that they seek, even when the instructions given do not make sense. You may appear crazy in the sight of others but it is that level of faith that brings forth uncommon favour and uncommon miracles to manifest in your life. Who cares if others think you’re crazy! Do what you feel led in your heart to do and see God move in your life. All you have to do is stretch out and believe, AMEN! Move by faith and not by what you see!


James 3:17-18 NIV – But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.


I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”

Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.


and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith.


And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

I pray that this video I made ministers to your spirit today. Enjoy this video Everybody and God Bless! 😀

Running Back to You


Hello Everybody!

I just had to post this awesome song by Zoe Grace called Running to bless your spirit today. The song is so melodic and upbeat that I know it’ll minister to your spirit today. God bless you everybody and enjoy this song of praise unto God today. 😀


Isaiah 55:4-6 (NIV)

See, I have made him a witness to the peoples,
    a ruler and commander of the peoples.
Surely you will summon nations you know not,
    and nations you do not know will come running to you,
because of the Lord your God,
    the Holy One of Israel,
    for he has endowed you with splendor.”

Seek the Lord while he may be found;
    call on him while he is near.


 

Recognizing the difference between a “Hireling” and the “True Shepherd”


Image result for jesus christ shepherdHi Everybody!

I had wanted to explore this topic a long time ago and forgot that I had left this post in my draft posts section for the past few months. Today, I want to talk about the “Hireling spirit”. What I want to say is that we should avoid developing a “Hireling” spirit as a behavior because a Hireling is literally “hired help” but not necessarily one with the heart of a True Shepherd.


John 10:12
But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.


John 10:13
The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.


When you go to church, I think it is important to develop discernment with respect to your Pastors/Preachers/Priests and any head member or leader of the church that is in charge of leading people in some group or another in the church.

Image result for jesus christ shepherdI think it is especially important for parents to assess the leadership of the churches that they want their children to attend because it’s not enough to look at a building filled with many people and assume that just because a place has a huge following that the doctrine is “sound”. I find that particularly in North America, we’ve had issues with Church leaders falling, particularly in “mega-churches” because of one scandal or another. This has given a rise to the issue of Apostasy as is written in 1 Timothy 4 (NKJV):


The Great Apostasy

Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving; for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

A Good Servant of Jesus Christ

If you instruct the brethren in these things, you will be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished in the words of faith and of the good doctrine which you have carefully followed. But reject profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise yourself toward godliness. For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come. This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance. 10 For to this end we both labor and suffer reproach,[a] because we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe. 11 These things command and teach.

Take Heed to Your Ministry

12 Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit,[b] in faith, in purity. 13 Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. 14 Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. 15 Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all. 16 Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.


apostasyThe issue of APOSTASY can be also found in Africa, Asia, Europe and other countries where there are huge churches that have issues with misappropriation of church funds, mismanagement of tithes and offerings, using the Word (the Bible) out of context to manipulate people into giving for personal gains and not for true charitable efforts as it should be intended for etc etc because of a lack of transparency and accountability.  It makes outsiders who look in at some of these places that are meant to be a safe haven for “true worshipers” and “believers” to view such churches as places filled with mediocrity. I do not believe that God is pleased.

Some other churches have fallen because of sexual abuse/misconduct or some other scandal where a leader turned out to be gay/lesbian etc etc and the list going on. The devil is having a field day when he sees a church fall as he strikes the shepherd.


“Woe to the worthless shepherd, who deserts the flock! May the sword strike his arm and his right eye! May his arm be completely withered, his right eye totally blinded!”


[ The Shepherd Struck, the Sheep Scattered ] “Awake, sword, against my shepherd, against the man who is close to me!” declares the Lord Almighty. “Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered, and I will turn my hand against the little ones.


[ Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial ] Then Jesus told them, “This very night you will all fall away on account of me, for it is written: “‘I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.’


[ Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial ] “You will all fall away,” Jesus told them, “for it is written: “‘I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.’

Image result for jesus christ shepherdIt is important to develop discernment concerning the leadership that you have in your churches, but you can only develop discernment concerning your leadership when you develop your own knowledge of what is written in the Word (The Bible) for yourself so that you will be able to pick up the fact when someone is speaking something that is contrary to what is written in the Bible and out of context. Do not wait for a Sunday service to feed your spirit with the Word of God. You should learn to read the Bible for yourself and meditate on the Word day and night so that it doesn’t depart from your mouth.


This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night.


Spiritual WarfareNow, I want to make it clear that I’m not advocating a “witch hunt” in churches. What I am simply saying is that as Christians, I think we should not be complacent and that we should make it our duty to know how to discern when a leader in the church is leading people astray with false doctrine, and/or using the Word out of context in order to satisfy a personal agenda that has nothing to do with increasing ones spirituality, holiness or promoting Godly living. We need to protect our children from such leadership that can subtly become cult-like if we do not perceive the agenda of the leadership that uses the Word (the Bible) to manipulate people into doing things that are unbiblical in the first place by using the Word out of context to suit their own agendas.


Image result for spiritual warfare


There are some churches particularly in North America that manipulate people into giving huge amounts of money during offering collections but you never see the fruit of that giving, you never see where that money is going because there is a lack of accountability and transparency. When God-fearing people attempt to challenge the leadership to become accountable about the current status quo, you’ll have to take note that you will face ridicule, persecution within the four walls of what should be a “safe-haven” just because you want to challenge the status-quo. I’ve been there and done that. I was in a church that didn’t like being challenged for some of the things that they were doing that I thought were quite unethical in practice and wow….the backlash was incredible because I chose to challenge the status-quo. I’m not afraid to address what greed.jpgshould be done right. I’m not about pulling the wool over people’s eyes especially with respect to church funds. Donations should be used for what they were intended for. I don’t see why people should be benefiting from the offering if the offering is intended to build the church and not fill certain “leaders” pockets as they buy the latest cars and new houses with the church funds while some people are sacrificing a 10th (10%) of their salary through their tithes and offerings just to see God move in their lives. I don’t believe that’s right. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not advocating that church leaders shouldn’t receive a salary, because they should; however, what I am saying is that there have been several scandals in North America where there has been a gross misappropriation of church funds to fuel and satisfy the greed and lust of certain church leaders that have seared consciences with respect to the things of God which includes the purpose of the tithes and offerings that is intended to fill the storehouse (the Church) for Church needs and missions and not necessarily to greedily fill their pockets with more than “enough”.


[ Do Not Rob God ] “Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, ‘In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings.

Image result for greedIt is so important to develop spiritual discernment with regards to the leadership in your churches because there have been cases where some churches became occultic through their leadership.

How can a church become occultic you ask?

It can happen if some leaders use the Bible out of context to spiritually manipulate their congregation to either participate in strange activities that have no true Biblical basis to back it up or engage in frivolous giving with the intention of amassing wealth from their congregation on the basis of fueling their greed. I have heard of pastors manipulating women (including married women) to sleep with them in order to “purify” their souls or absolve them of their sins. Where in the BIBLE does it say to do that which is contrary? Such abuses cannot be overlooked and I believe God is not pleased when such abuses happen in the church. This is why it is important for every believer to read the Bible for themselves and know what it says so that they cannot be led astray by Wolves in Sheeps clothing. 


Matthew 7:15 [Full Chapter]

[ You Will Know Them by Their Fruits ] “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.

Wolves in Sheep Clothing

I just want to state for the record that I’m not advocating a witch-hunt in churches because there are churches with honest Shepherds and God-fearing leadership. What I am saying is that it is important to build on discernment so that you are not easily led astray by individuals who know how to use the Word (The Bible) out of context to manipulate people into doing things that are contrary to what is actually written. If you recognize that you are in a church that is not teaching sound doctrine, and that you are able to identify that some of the practices within the church are contrary to the Bible, then, I think it is time that you consider where in the world are you? Do not be idle in the church! Read your Bible for yourself and not simply wait for a Sunday Service to get your Bible fix. Also consider that you may have to look for another church if the one you are in is leading people astray from the TRUTH. You need to meditate on the Word for yourself so that you can become strong in the Lord and lead others in the right direction. It is important to meditate on what is written so that you can discern when someone is preaching something false or contrary to what you know is in the Bible. This is how you can sharpen your discernment. Iron sharpens iron and you need to sharpen your knowledge so that you can be able to distinguish that which is true and that which is false.


Remember when Jesus said that:

Matthew 7:21 [Full Chapter]

[ I Never Knew You ] “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.

This just goes to show you that it’s not enough to simply have the appearance of Godliness if you deny it’s power.


2 Timothy 3:1-7 (NKJV)

Perilous Times and Perilous Men

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.


Image result for spiritual warfare


We need to become consciously aware that we live in very evil and perilous times. Again, I’m not advocating a witch hunt in churches. What I am simply saying is that as Christians, it is our duty to learn the Word for ourselves rather than wait for a Sunday service to get our Word fix. We need to meditate on the Word so that we can develop our discernment and the sensitivity to distinguish when someone is saying something that is contrary to what is written. Jesus always said “It is written…”, however, how many of us know what is written? In order to protect yourself and your family from being led astray, it is pertinent that you hold Bible studies together as a family so that you can all grow together and then when you go to church you gain more understanding of what is written when the pastor preaches.

Self-growth is an individualistic thing. You have to be proactive in order to grow in your faith. There are many resources out there to help you increase in your faith. Invest in Christian books in areas of spiritual warfare, spiritual growth, theology etc etc. I would definitely invest increasing knowledge for personal growth so that you can become stronger and sharper as a Christian. I would highly recommend this website:  www.christianbooks.com as a great resource for affordable Christian literature if you are interested in investing in your knowledge of the Word. You will be more effective in your evangelistic efforts when you increase in your knowledge base of the Word and things concerning Christian living. Well, I think I’ve written enough for today so God Bless You everybody! 😀

Spiritual House Cleaning


Hi Everybody!

So today my post is about spiritual house cleaning. I have read a book by Perry Stone called Purging your House, Pruning your Family Tree which deals with recognizing whether or not you have accursed things in your houses that can affect the spiritual climate of your home. A lot of people buy articles of clothing and souvenirs from countries that they visit during vacations and bring back as keep sakes because they want to have memories for their visits; however, some things that people bring back into their homes can bring in curses even if bought out of ignorance. There is a really great book that I would recommend people to get regarding how to spiritually clean your house by Eddie and Alice Smith called Spiritual House Cleaning.

It reveals a lot about how to detect what is causing demonic influences to inhabit your home. Many things are tied to objects or activities that have taken place in the residence that leave a place to be spiritually contaminated by demonic influences. Some people in the world won’t venture into certain houses because of “ghost stories” or a series of unfortunate events that happened in a home that leaves the place to be no safe haven. There a things we can do to keep our homes sanctified and holy, however, it’s all dependent on how serious we are to purge the things that contaminate our homes.

In the book Witchcraft in the Pews, Bishop George Bloomer talks about how a woman was given a set of 5 dolls in a coffin looking box by a relative. Immediately, I thought they were voodoo dolls, but anyway, she accepted these dolls in ignorance and she kept them.  Since that time, she and her family were unable to keep a house for a long period of time, she relocated several times in less that 6 months at a time in a 10 year period. They had financial distress, and health issues afflicting the members. Bishop prayed with the lady to break off the curse and to renounce her attachment to these dolls but was puzzled as to why there were five dolls in a box instead of one. Bishop consulted a friend who had knowledge concerning certain occult practices that afflict people to find out what the meaning of the 5 dolls meant and was revealed to him that the significance of the 5 dolls was symbolic of the number of members the woman had in her family. She had a family of 5 and the relative who gave her these dolls used it to curse her and steal her and her family members blessings and transfer them onto themselves. The lady noted that that specific family member never experienced financial difficulties after she had given the dolls to her as a “present”.


In Perry Stone’s book Purging your House, Pruning your Family Tree he uncovers a serious chain of deaths in the J.F. Kennedy family brought upon by the father of the family. Every son and child died tragically in violent ways because of the sins of the Father. This is called a Generational curse. People, what I can say is that it is important to really look at your family tree and start pruning some branches that have allowed for continual afflictions to exist in your family. I have been looking back at my own family tree and know that there is a chain of distant relatives who practiced occult activities that have been in the family and a chain of deaths of the twins in the family.


In knowing this, I had to renounce the sins of the fore fathers in order to break the chain of curses that can touch the third and forth generations. I know in my family the death of the twins seemed to be a serious matter. I used to have twin grand-uncles on my grandpas side and twins on my grandmas side. On my grandpa’s side the twins would die in mysterious ways. We have distant twin cousins who have died either early or when they achieved a feat. The longest surviving twins were in their late 30’s and one of them had achieved a doctorate, but died a few days later after his graduation. Now they are both dead. My sister and I are the longest surviving twins so far. I know that in tracing back such history you cannot joke with the impact that a generational curse can have on a family, but I praise God that my sister and I are the first born-again long-surviving twins in the family. We have to break the chain somewhere and it’s only through believing in Christ as our Lord and Savior. It is important to not remain ignorant of the devices of the enemy used against you and your family no matter how Christian you are.

There is nothing worse that being an ignorant Christian.

So today, trace back to your family tree and analyze the patterns that have contributed to generational curses and generational blessings. I know that although there have been generational curses in my family, there has also been a generational blessing that has started with my grandpa in terms of education. He was the first sibling out of nine children to graduate out of university and so far, as the third generation both my twin and I have graduated out of university with double honors majors. My Aunt has a Masters in the Arts so there is something to praise God about. Sometimes breaking such curses seems like a struggle but with God all things are possible. We can only renounce the sins of the past and look forward towards the goal pressing forward and never giving up.  Continue to speak blessings over your life no matter how bleak the situation seems. Spoken words of Blessings over your life in the Name of Jesus is a powerful act to counteract a curse. Jabez broke the curse of his name and God enlarged his territory. Think of how much God wants to enlarge your territory. Trust God and seek His face to get your blessing.

Have a blessed day everyone and keep praying, keep studying the Word and trust God with all your needs. God meets you when you call on His Name.

May the Joy of the Lord be with you today, in Jesus Name! God Bless!

A Song to the Fatherless – I Forgive You


Hello Everybody!

I just had to post this song by COE Featuring Canton Jones called I Forgive You. This is a song to the Fatherless children out there. When Children are abandoned by their parents there is a void that is placed in their hearts to which only the Holy Spirit can fill. Some children end up looking for love in the wrong places and this includes children of single-parent families. The absence of either parent can affect a child in so many ways; however, just know that if you are a child from a single-parent household, just believe that God is your Father. He will take care of you and He is the only one that can satisfy the desires of your broken heart. Bitterness from the abandonment can affect your spirit. Learn to forgive your absentee parent or parent(s) in your life and start to Lean on God as your parent and guardian. He will guide you to higher ground. He will provide for you with the necessary support system in order for you to fulfill your God-given destiny.

Some people may not have grown up with their paternal parent(s) and may have been adopted as children into a different family, but that is how God shows His love for you as well. He provides love for you from a different source. My Grandparents adopted my sister and I when we were young because my mum was just a teenager when she had us, so I respect my grandparents very much for having taken care of us all that time until my mum was able to take on the baton during my teenage years. Respect your adoptive parents if you are an adopted child. Not all parents are perfect (which includes adoptive parents), however, if they show you the type of love the God expects for you to receive from them, you will grow up to be a great person with a God-driven destiny. Give God all the praise and never take the people that He has blessed you with in your lifetime for Granted. You just don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone, Amen. I pray that this song ministers to the fatherless and motherless children who need to know that you need to forgive your parents who abandoned you in order to move on and be successful in all that you want to achieve in this lifetime. Unforgiveness traps you in a cycle that keeps you bound to bitterness so learn to let go and Let GOD


if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.


For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You.


“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.


But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Assessing Your Partnerships for Success


Hi Everybody!

This teaching is what I talked about this past Friday. I pray that it blesses someone today. It is so important to figure out who you are in agreement with today so that you can assess your reality based on your associations. If eagles of a feather flock together then who are you flocking with? Who you hang with ultimately designs that path of your life. Ask yourself this question today and consider where you are, where you are not and what and who is it that you need to take you to the next level. I pray that this teaching blesses you today. 🙂


 Corinthians 6:15-17 (NKJV)

1And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you[a] are 531eb74045e1fdb09694bcdcf33fd6a0the temple of the living God. As God has said:

“I will dwell in them
And walk among them.
I will be their God,
And they shall be My people.”[b]

17 Therefore

Come out from among them
And be separate
, says the Lord.
Do not touch what is unclean,
And I will receive you.”[c]

When you are in pursuit of success, you have to assess who is in your life that you are in partnership with. If you are partnering with someone, whether it be in business, or for a project, marriage, or a common goal, it means that you are in agreement with them.


The dictionary defines “Partnership” as:

  1. the state or condition of being a partner; participation; association; joint interest.
  2. Law. the relation subsisting between partners; the contract creating this relation; an association of persons joined as partners in business.

In verse 17 it says: “Come out from among them And be separate” meaning that because you are a distinct believer, you have to separate yourself from people who do not walk in the same level of agreement concerning your understanding with respect to your Faith in God and your Godly philosophy concerning life.


a844c65a31bf55c81df28fd94cba41b9.jpgThere is a saying that says: “Bad company corrupts good character”; which means that you are required to assess who you are in association with right now and ask yourself, what philosophy of life are you operating under? Are you conforming to the patterns of worldly thinking? Or are you being renewed and transformed by the Word of God? Who are you in agreement with? Are you yoked to a believer or believers who believe in the vision for your life or are you yoked to people that ridicule your vision for your life, who continuously mock you and discourage you from achieving your dreams in fulfillment of your true potential?


Your identity is not wrapped up in other people’s opinion of your destiny. This is why the Lord says in verse 16 “And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God.” So many people are trying to match the worlds standards of success, that they do not realize that they have set up certain people in their lives that they have partnered with to be idols. There is a fine line between mere admiration and respect to a person you look up to versus obsessive idolization of another individual with the intent of copying everything that they do from the way they look to how they dress and walk, etc etc… there is a fine line between admiration and idolization. Whoever you look up to with high regard with the intention of becoming exactly like that person is idolatry. God didn’t create you to be like someone else, He created you to be uniquely you. When you decide to take on another person’s image (which is idolatry), you have made an agreement within your own soul that you aren’t good enough, that you aren’t fearfully and wonderfully made, and that you need to become someone else which is a devastating deception that comes from being in a state of having an identity crisis. You then partner yourself to a different image that you want to emulate which can be done by the power of agreement.


What does the word “agreement” mean? In the dictionary it is defined as the following:

  1. the act of agreeing or of coming to a mutual arrangement.
  2. the state of being in accord.
  3. an arrangement that is accepted by all parties to a transaction.
  4. a contract or other document delineating such an arrangement.
  5. unanimity of opinion; harmony in feeling: agreement among the members of the faculty.

Avoid-Bad-Company-OnlineIf you are in one accord with someone; by definition you are in agreement with them and you have bound yourself/ yoked yourself to the same believe system as the other person. Children of God, you need to assess who you are currently walking in agreement with right now so that if there are some ungodly associations in your life that are hindering your progress, you need to ask God to reveal these unequal yokes and break yourself from them spiritually and physically from those people in your life.


Your Net Worth is dependent on your Network. If you are tied to people who have a poverty mentality, you will not be able to succeed because you have yoked yourself to the same philosophy. Such people will discourage you every time you seek to move up to the next level in your life because they are pessimistic in nature, they do not believe the God’s Jeremiah 29:11 promise over your life and are opposed to anything resembling prosperity.

Maybe you like bling but such people will undermine you and will probably label you as a “gold-digger”.  Maybe you like well-tailored suits or clothing and a person with the poverty mentality will undermine your fashion sense and probably say you are too showy, too bright…your too this or too that…etc etc, but the thing is this, prosperity comes with benefits, and anyone who is opposed to receiving benefits is surviving under the class of social assistance. Meaning, that you don’t get to buy what you want and are completely depended on a system that gives you just barely enough to survive the next day. This is a different type of yoke that binds a person to forever be a servant to poverty and with such people, it is difficult to break that line of thinking because of the power of the agreement they have with that philosophy of life.


Everybody wants to go to the next level, but some of you are struggling to move forward because you have partnered with the wrong crowd and/or you are unequally yoked to someone or people who do not agree with your philosophy of life. If you are in that situation, it can explain why some things aren’t moving in your life.

Ask God to reveal the wrong associations that you have in your life and seek to break any spiritual agreements you have had with them whether it be by verbal contract or a physical contract and then physically break your associations with those people by simply saying your done and this relationship is over.

Amos 3:3 – Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?

Going back to 2 Corinthians 6:17, the Lord tells you “Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you” meaning that do not entertain impure thoughts that turn into impure actions; do not corrupt yourself by agreeing with someone that tells you to do something that is contrary and outside the will of God for your life. People simply miss the mark (Sin) because they decide to do the contrary of what they know they ought to do.


Who you agree with in this life will determine where your life will go. It is important that even in the case of choosing a mentor, leader or someone you look up to, really dig deep as to the character of the individual that you are selecting to be in partnership with. Does this person have Integrity, Honor, a positive rapport, a solid foundation with respect to their philosophy of life, does their actions match their words, are they strong leaders, are they able to empathize and build others, are they self-aware of their own weakness etc etc? You need to ask these types of questions with every person you encounter in your life, be it a friend, mentor, business partner or family, because what you end up agreeing to, will become part of your reality.


Sometimes you may have friends for a season and then they become “unfriendly friends” that become spiteful and mean to you once you have achieved something or have leveled up in some way. Those are the types of “friends” that have not signed up the contract to be in your life and you thinking you had an agreement of sorts, was the only one who signed up for this relationship. In their view, they are not even in breach of the contract because they never where your friends to begin with. These are the types of people you have to watch out for in your life. They are the types who burn bridges (kill connections) with others and once they realize that there was any value in maintaining that relationship, they will now have to face swimming to the other side with sharks to regain your trust again because they already burned the bridge of that relationship. Trust is earned in such a circumstance through the power of agreement.


A true friend is one who agrees to be in a binding relationship with you, to walk with you in agreement. They do not despise your achievements but rather, celebrate you because they agree that leveling up should be a way of life for the both of you. If either of you were in disagreement of this philosophy, you would not be able to walk together.


Elijah and Elisha.jpgLook at Elisha, he followed Elijah and submitted to him in authority and believed in what Elijah believed, and therefore grew in stature with God and man, and received a double portion anointing as the end result.


Who you attach yourself to will determine the level of increase you will have in your life.


Who you are in agreement with in this life will determine the level of increase you will expect to see in your life. If you partner with poverty, your reality will look quite bleak, but if you partner with go-getters and people who rise above obstacles, who see no limits and don’t back down even when they face setbacks, those people have an understanding of the Jeremiah 29:11 promise that God has for all his people which is:


Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

As we pray and fast, ask God to increase your discernment to identify any unequal yokes in your life that need to be broken. Repent of ever having agreed with their philosophies of life that do not match with God’s Word and ask God to break any verbal covenants/promises/agreements that you may have made with them without thinking and to break the yoke forever in Jesus Name, Amen.

Understanding Your Adversary: Remain Focused and Don’t Get Distracted


Hi Everybody,

I spoke on this topic with my church tonight and hope that this message blesses your Spirit. If you want to be successful in life, you have to move by principle, and I mean by Godly principles that can be best understood through the life of Jesus. Jesus shows us so many examples of how we ought to live, so take a look at this on your own and do some soul searching as you pursue greatness in your life. Amen! 😀


Luke 4:1-13 (NKJV) – Satan Tempts Jesus

4 Then Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into[a] the wilderness, 2 being tempted for forty days by the devil. And in those days He ate nothing, and afterward, when they had ended, He was hungry.

And the devil said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.”

But Jesus answered him, saying,[b] “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.’”[c]

Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him[d] all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said to Him, “All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. Therefore, if You will worship before me, all will be Yours.”

And Jesus answered and said to him, Get behind Me, Satan![e] For[f] it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ ”[g]

temptation-christ.jpgThen he brought Him to Jerusalem, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down from here. 10 For it is written:

‘He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you,’

11 and,

‘In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’”[h]

12 And Jesus answered and said to him, “It has been said, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’[i]

13 Now when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time.


John 16:33 NIV

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.


When you are pressing through for your blessings in life, when you are in pursuit of elevation or promotion, and going to the next level, you must understand that there is a battle you face against your destiny. This battle is against the adversary (the devil).

You have to understand who your adversary is and how he operates in order to overcome his schemes.

We are praying and fasting not as a religious exercise, but as a spiritual exercise to develop emotional strength, wisdom, discernment in order to grow in knowledge, power and Faith to achieve desired results.  It takes a lot of work to remain focused, and through prayer and fasting is where your spirit becomes sharpened to deal with things ahead of you that you would not have seen had you not prayed and fasted.

It’s time to understand what it is that you are dealing with when you are in pursuit of elevation in your life.


In Luke 4:2 – Jesus was tempted for 40 days and nights by the devil this means that your enemies do not rest until they take you down. Christians are sleeping while their enemies are plotting for their downfall day and night. You cannot afford to take on a passive approach in your daily affairs when the enemies of your destiny do not rest until they have achieved the destruction of your destiny.

Matthew 17:21

However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”

My question to you is, are you still sleeping?


1372260154_Temptation_of_ChristIn Luke 4:3 – The devil undermines Jesus by mocking him and attempting to see if Jesus has an area of pride to prove himself and test his loyalties – Do not get suckered into this. You will have people who will mock what you are about and will attempt to get you to prove your self-worth by provoking you to prove who you are in an arrogant way. This provocation is really just a method to get you to act out of pride and arrogance which can turn people off who could potentially be your destiny helpers. Be still and know that this can cause you to sin and do something outside the will of God if you get suckered into proving your identity and self-worth just because someone mocked you. Try not to be moved by the provocation of your enemies who rile you up to puff yourself up with pride and arrogance to cause you to miss opportunities with people who want to help you move to the next level.


In Luke 4:4 – Jesus didn’t need to prove himself –  He already knew who he was and therefore responded with dignity and grace and told the devil plainly that “listen, you…I know what you’re trying to get me to prove but I’ll tell you something, you need to remember what Your Creator (God) has said and commanded you to do” (this is my paraphrasing what has happened) and therefore, Jesus turned the conversation around to pinpoint the enemy’s lack of obedience to do what the Lord has commanded all creation to do and that is to live by every Word of God. The Devil could not come with a good come back on that point because he knows very well how rebellious he is to God the Father. This is where Christians need to learn to order their conversations right. Just because someone is undermining you doesn’t mean that it gives you the license to respond with contempt. Learn to wisen up and respond with wisdom and grace. Order your conversations right and act with humility.


Jesus-TemptationIn Luke 4:5-7 – The devil takes Jesus to a high place and claims that he has authority over all the things that any man/woman would desire to have and that if he works and acknowledges the devil by giving him praise, he could have a share of what he has as well as a promise to this allegiance – Listen, do not be fooled by people who try to trick you out of your rightful place of promotion by getting you to side with them and work for them like a gopher to make them look good. I am not talking about rightful submission to authority here. I’m talking about those who scheme to get you to undermine the right authority by causing you to take a side that is rebellious in nature in order to achieve gains and/or promotion by dishonest means.

To take this into context, try and imagine this: Have you ever been in a workplace where a supervisor undermines the authority of the manager who you report to and gets co-workers to side with the supervisor in order to gang up together to attempt to overthrow and get the manager fired so that they can take the manager’s place by bribing people into being disobedient through lies and slander (accusations) in order to receive promotion at the promises that the supervisor makes as a form of a pact, or allegiance. “If you do this for me, I’ll help you get the promotion you deserve…”


The devil attempted to do the same thing with Jesus. But how did Jesus respond?  

In Luke 4:8 – Jesus told Satan to get behind him – Sometimes you need people to get behind you so that you don’t lose focus on what’s ahead of you.You can shove such people who are there to distract you “one side to the back” (a Nigerian saying) if they are in your face. Jesus refused to entertain the conniving nature of his enemy to be disobedient to the True authority Jesus submits to, which is God the Father. In the same way, you may face people in life who will try to get you to be rebellious and cause you to attack the leadership, to undermine and scheme against the heads of your company or church and overthrow managers to steal their places of authority by dishonest actions and slander. This also is a test of where your loyalties lie.


God does not approve of rebellion in any fashion, so why should you side with the devil and become associated with the oppressor? You will find that those that help such conniving people become a slave to the oppressor who never intended to fulfill their blanket lies and promises. Children of God, it is important to understand the meaning of submission to the right authority. Where do your loyalties lie? Do not entertain people that get you to rebel. You will find a tight noose around your neck if you fall for such schemes in your life. This is a trick the adversary uses every time to get you into bondage. Be wise to rebuke those who attempt to get you to undermine the leadership in your church, your workplace, your family or in any other area of your life. You will preserve your soul if you understand the meaning of submission.


32db58923377d8b8e41b5dba9a472216


In Luke 4:9-11 – The devil attempts yet again for Jesus to prove himself, but in this time, he wants Jesus to take a huge risk to prove that his identity is indeed the “Son of God” based on his qualifications – Sometimes your enemies will be able to guess and see where you are heading in your destiny, and they will try to trick you into proving yourself quickly by taking a high and unnecessary risk just to prove that you are indeed what they suspect you are in your journey of life. They entice you to seek recognition concerning your identity and abilities by pursuing to get noticed in the wrong way.


Do not be fooled into seeking recognition for the wrong purpose. This will undermine your integrity.

Let us take an example to understand what is going on here:  Say for example, you know that you are good at public speaking and your boss acknowledges it and has given you the responsibility to be his speech writer. You are then invited to listen to your boss speak at a function but a co-worker thinks it is unfair that you aren’t being acknowledged for the numerous speeches that you have written for your boss to speak. This co-worker then tells you, to hijack the function and embarrass your boss by letting everyone know that you wrote that speech for him and that your boss doesn’t know how to do speeches without your help. By doing this, it is assumed that people will give you praise and acknowledge you for your skills and this will draw away the attention from your boss and put you in the spotlight. But the catch is, if you listen to your sly co-worker’s advice, you will find out by the very next day that you are fired and without a job because you undermined your integrity by undermining your boss in your pursuit of recognition for promotion.

Do not be provoked into seeking recognition and acknowledgement the wrong way.

The adversary is always provocative, and malicious in what they try to get you to do in order to miss the mark in your destiny.


How did Jesus respond to that provocation?

In Luke 4:12 – Jesus responded by rebuking the devil and telling him you can’t tempt me to go outside the will of God. In the same way, if anybody attempts to get you to seek recognition in the wrong way, you should tell them where to go and not bother you because you want to hold on to this beautiful thing called INTEGRITY! Do not allow people to cause you to miss opportunities for advancement by making you undermine authority, and doing things dishonestly in order to achieve promotion or elevation. Smarten up and do not give room for nonsense.


In Luke 4:13 – The devil departed from Jesus after tempting him for the last time and will wait for another opportune time to tempt him again to go outside the will of God – Your enemies will try and try again to get you to do something wrong that will make you miss the mark. Sin is defined as “missing the mark”. You don’t want to miss the mark in your destiny, so as we pray and fast, seek God to give you wisdom to know what to do, strength to withstand temptations to do something outside the will of God concerning your life, discernment to identify who your enemies of your destiny are, knowledge to handle every situation with God’s grace, and the will to remain focused on the goal without being distracted.


Stay.Focussed


You need God to help you with every attack that may come from the enemies of your destiny. It is not “if” the enemy comes that you need God’s help, it’s “when”. You will face obstacles; you will face trials but you must determine within yourself to hold onto your integrity. Jesus demonstrates that you can strengthen yourself through prayer and fasting to face such schemes that occur in your life. This battle is won when you operate in the realm of the Spirit of God. Your own might and power is not sufficient to handle each attack that comes your way. Seek God and He will show you the way to gain success the right way. Put your Faith and Trust in God.


Zechariah 4:6

So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the Lord of hosts.


Don’t make prayer and fasting a religious exercise, it is your spiritual warfare weapon for success.

Philippians 3:12-16 – Pressing Toward the Goal

12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

15 Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you. 16 Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us be of the same mind.

 

Drawing Closer to God


Hello Everybody! 😀

It’s been a while since my last post but I’m spending time with God by praying and fasting with my church for 1 week for the month of April. Although it is for 1 week, I’m looking forward to the next month where we will be doing 30 days for Prayer and Fasting. I really want people to tap into breakthroughs this year but not many churches want to pray and fast these days. Sometimes, the challenges we face require more than just prayer, you may require fasting in order to receive your breakthrough. I know that every time I’ve fasted, I’ve always seen results. People in my church have seen results to the point that people keep asking when is the next prayer and fasting session. People are hungry to tap into what can only be found in the Spirit. The Lord reveals so much during the fast that it empowers you when you humble your flesh to yield to the Power of the Holy Spirit.

Might and Power can only take you so far, but it is by His Spirit that you conquer your challenges that you face. It’s day 2 of the Fast for me for this month since we started yesterday and God is just doing amazing things. I feel like He’s just showing me things in the Word that I didn’t see before and I’m preparing to release this Word for Friday night with my members. I will eventually post it on here and on my church’s website Livingproofcentre.org after I release it to the Church first, but y’all can wait right lol. 🙂

For now I just want to post this song that has been ministering to my Spirit. It’s from Antwaun Stanley called You Are the Source.

I pray that this song blesses your Spirit Today.  God Bless You everybody! 😀

Committing to God’s Business Plan for Your Life


Hello Everybody! 😀

Today, I want to talk about God’s business plan for your life. In order for me to talk about this, you kind of need to know what it means to have a business plan, so I’ll give you an example from the Business World.


a91a4ac7a83095fb0178c01991d87132In my workplace, I assist a VP and a group of directors and managers in the process of creating a business plan for our subgroup. We drew up plans for certain strategic goals and initiatives we’d like to implement for the year and after we finalized these goals and initiatives, we drew up a financial proposal for funds required to support our groups goals and initiatives. These plans are then given to the Executive board of directors for the company who decide what goals they are willing to implement and what they are not, and they also ensure our strategic goals and initiatives fit in alignment with the overall organization’s  strategic plan, goals and initiatives. On that basis, that’s when we find out what our year is going to look like and helps us to re-strategize for initiatives that are scrapped, or under-funded or under-resourced.


In the same way, God is like the head of an organization who has a Strategic plan for your life. He has a Business Plan for your life and wants you to be a part of it.


The Question is, “do you know what God’s plan is for your life?”


 

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.


God’s plan is to have you included in His business plan. I know that many of us have our own sets of goals, aspirations, dreams and most likely have our own plan of obtaining the things we desire, but the question I want to pose to you is this, Did you give your plan to God for Him to screen and assess what goals do not line up with the vision that He has for your life?

I was talking to God the other day, through prayer obviously, and the Lord gave me this idea for this post, in fact most of my blog posts are inspired by the Holy Spirit. I never write until I have a message. Anyway, so I was praying the other day and the Holy Spirit just kept bringing to my attention on the hard work it was to set up all these meetings to create my subgroups business plan before the executive committee and the Holy Spirit brought to my attention and asked me a question. He asked me, “How many of My people ask me about their business plan for their lives?” And the question really hit me, because I had to assess myself and think, how many times had I failed to bring an idea or desire before God and asked Him what He thought about it and the way I was going about it?


We have to include God in our business plan. I believe that God wants to satisfy the desires of our hearts, but how about partnering with Him by also including in our plan to satisfy the desires of Jesus’ heart. When you include God in your plan, you will surely succeed. You see, most of the time, our desires, goals and dreams don’t always line up with God’s plan for our lives and then people get disappointed when things don’t go their way. Have you ever asked God to screen and assess your business plan to see if it lines up with His vision for your life?  If the answer is no, then this is the point I’m making, we need to go back to that place where we put the desires of our own hearts into God’s hand so that He can screen what is in alignment to His will for your life, and scrap out what you don’t need in your life, because sometimes, our desires are not always pure and may potentially be desires that steer you away from true success.


May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.


But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.

image2


You see, we need to understand that though God wants us to succeed, we also have to understand that our destiny is also wrapped up in Jesus. He gave you talents in order to use them to advance His cause, which is the cause of Christ Jesus to spread the gospel of hope, peace and love to a world that does not know Him.


Well, how can I line up with God’s Business plan? 

Let me encourage you and say that God has given us all we need to be effective to minister the Word of God to a world that doesn’t know him. Some people think that they have nothing to offer if they don’t stand on the pulpit, but let me tell you right now, it’s not about standing on the pulpit. You are important and your gift and talents are what you need to use to advance God’s Business.


My gift is in writing and business administration. I’m an Executive Assistant in the Legal Profession. I currently use these gifts in the church as a Personal Assistant to my Pastors. I started blogging for myself, but have used my abilities to create a website for my church to transmit sermons for those that are unable to make it to church. I’m in charge of the social media aspects of the church with Facebook and twitter, periscope etc etc. I prepare sound check and the projector for the worship service and do a bunch of other things from skills I already use in the marketplace. I also minister in the church and preach/prophesy whenever I’m requested to speak under submission to my pastors. I’m using what I know to do to be effective in advancing the message of the gospel and so can you. I enjoy writing more than speaking, and hence I blog a lot, however, what I’m trying to say is that God has already given you the tools to be a blessing to someone else. I’m not saying that you should do what I do. I’m only doing what I know to do based on my gifts and talents. You should utilize your own gifts your own way to do the same thing. You really don’t have to over-think this folks. God needs you to join Him in His Business Plan. Will you join and partner with Jesus on this?


c9ed72f44d4746bd4962c5c3211d7bbdIf you’re asking yourself “How can I be used, I don’t know what to do with my gift or talent?”, Well, what I’ll say to you is this, there is no gift or talent that is too small that it can’t be used by God to be a blessing to someone else. I’ll give you some examples. If you are a stay-at-home mom, and you love children, then you can be helpful in Children’s ministry. Teach the kids in the church how to love God and worship him. If you are a cleaner/custodian, the church needs to be cleaned and prepared for welcoming newcomers and people that need to hear the message without stepping on gum or what have you on the ground and being distracted by how the place is messy. Be a blessing and volunteer to clean the church. If you only know how to cook then, help out during special events with catering for food or join a soup kitchen and serve the poor who are hungry. If you are an architect, you can assist in expansion and provide structural consultation and advice regarding how the church building can create rooms for more activities for other ministries. If you are a financial advisor in the marketplace, you can use your skills in the church to get people in the church out of debt by volunteering your expertise. If you are a nurse, if somebody suddenly collapses in the church, you will be needed to assist that person.  If you know how to play an instrument or know how to sing, join the worship team. If you are a teacher, then assist the church with bible-study classes. I could go on and on and on, but what I’m trying to say is, that everybody is relevant and God gave you these gifts and talents as a part of  Jesus’ Business Plan. If you do not include Jesus in the plans for your life, just know that your plans are futile and won’t succeed.


The Lord knows all human plans; he knows that they are futile.

If you want God to be helping you in your business, you have to want to be a part of helping Him in His business. You will require wise counsel and direction which also means that if you want great success in your life, you must show your business plan to the Greatest CEO of your Life, Jesus Christ.


Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.


Do not be disappointed with the things God strikes off on the list of your strategic plan for success. Just be aware, that His plan is still to prosper you and He knows exactly what you need and require in order to achieve your dreams, but you have to be humble, willing to work, and willing to press forward towards the goal, His WAY. Include God in the picture of your life, Amen!


Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.


Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.


Plans are established by seeking advice; so if you wage war, obtain guidance.


There is a consequence for ignoring to give God the Business Plan for your life to see if it aligns with His Business Plan. You will do things in your own might and power and will do things in secret thinking you’re smart and do not need advice on how to make it. Many people expect God to follow their plans, but have no intention of being part of the overall plan that God has over their lives. Such people do not know the meaning of submission and are very rebellious. If you fail to be a part of God’s Business plan, then I can tell you right now, you will live a very difficult life and will lose everything you think you’ve worked hard for within a blink of an eye if you assume that Your Ways are better than God’s ways. I guarantee that.


The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty.


Woe to those who go to great depths to hide their plans from the Lord, who do their work in darkness and think, “Who sees us? Who will know?”


[ Woe to the Obstinate Nation ] “Woe to the obstinate children,” declares the Lord, “to those who carry out plans that are not mine, forming an alliance, but not by my Spirit, heaping sin upon sin;


When you partner with Jesus as the CEO of your life, you will be successful in every area. Do not be obstinate and incorrigible about how you want to do life. Learn to seek God in EVERYTHING that you do. You need Him to screen your dreams, plans and desires to ensure that they line up with His Jeremiah 29:11 strategic plan for your life. If you want to have no part in the overall spreading the gospel of Truth part of that plan, then you have automatically shut God out of your plan. You must understand that your life is so much more than waking up, going to work, making money, eating and sleeping and waking up the next day to do that all over again. There is a generation dying to know that they have a purpose in their life and need direction, but how can they receive direction if no one wants to follow God’s business plan?


But the noble make noble plans, and by noble deeds they stand.


Isaiah558-9-e1369426704519


In order to align to God’s Business Plan for your life, you need to know His Word. This isn’t an option, it’s a requirement to satisfy the conditions of success, and I mean Godly success.


This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.


Isaiah 55:8-9

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.


Remember, our ways are not His ways, so let us partner with Jesus and get on the same page and join in on committing to God’s Business Plan for our lives, Amen! 😀


Here is a song by Bethel’s Steffany Frizzell-Gretzinger  called Closer. I pray that this song ministers to your spirit today. God bless you everybody! 😀
