Lift Your Head Weary Sinner

Hello Everybody!

Today, I want to post a few songs to bless your spirit. The first awesome worship song is by Passion Band called Spirit Fall.

The next song is by David Crowder Band (Feat. Lecrae) called Shadows.

The last song that I want to post today is by Crowder Feat. Tedashii called Lift Your Head Weary Sinner (Chains). I personally love Tedashii’s part in the song. It’s just off the hook! I pray that these songs minister to your spirit today. God Bless You everybody! 😀

The Call – Lord, We Need You Right Now!

Hello People!

I just had to post this song by Isabel Davis called The Call. The song is just amazing and I know it will minister to your spirit today. We need the presence of God in our lives everyday no matter what we are going through so call on His name and He will answer you. I pray that you enjoy this song today. God Bless You everybody 😀 !

Everything’s Gonna Be Alright!

Hello People!

I just had to post this upbeat song by Canton Jones called Be Alright to uplift your spirit today! You know when you’re going through a tough time whether it be financial distress, sickness, betrayal, abandonment etc etc, sometimes you just want to know or have some show of confidence that no matter what difficulties that you face, when you put your trust in God with whatever it is that you’re going through, just know that it’s going to be alright. People may abandon you, people may disappoint you, and things may seem to be going south in your life when they should be heading north, but with God on your side, all things work together for the good of those that love the Lord.

The way I perceive situations these days is in light of whatever will be will be and whatever will not be was probably not meant to be.  You cannot afford to look at that which you cannot change. Rather, keep on pressing forward and not look back at things that hold no meaning to you at this time. Focus on what is important and pursue purpose. I believe that there are people that will reconnect to people at the appointed time this year for a specific purpose. I also believe that there will be divine connections that God will bring to people for the purpose of building others and taking them towards their God-driven destiny. Seek God in all that you do, and focus on what is ahead of you rather than what has passed and in the past. I pray that this song by Canton Jones will bless your spirit today. God Bless You everybody! 😀

Romans 8:28 [Full Chapter]

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Worship: What can wash away my Sins!

Hello People!

I just had to post a couple more songs for today where the first is by Guvna B ft. Deitrick Haddon called Nothing But the Blood.

“Why do you believe?” – Recruitment Strategies from Unbelievers

Hello People!

Today, I want to talk about “remaining grounded in your faithWhen I was in middle school, I had just gotten saved after my mum gave me some books regarding spiritual warfare because when I was growing up, I faced many battles with sickness and spiritual oppression from forces I could not see (eg, my body would twist on its own in an attempt to snap my neck and there was a time I was about to completely levitate off my bed but I had to fight what I could not see with all my strength that I became so emotionally, spiritually and physically drained from fighting something I could not see all night long).

Image result for spiritual deliveranceThere was one incident where I had slept walked into the kitchen (in Kenya) and had picked up a kitchen knife and had pointed it to my chest. I was seemingly in a trance state when this had happened and fortunately, my late grandmother had come into the room completely freaked out and shouted at me saying “What are you DOING???!!!!”. At that point I snapped out of it and saw that I had a kitchen knife pointed to my chest and my grandmother was definitely freaking out on me. She seemed calm initially but I knew that she was totally angry with me and told me to “Put that knife down!” with an authoritative voice that I was so scared that I did what she asked me to do. For the life of me, I don’t even know how I got to the kitchen since my bedroom was located on the second floor of the house. I thought I was going to get a smack down but she came and hugged me and drew me away from the kitchen. I guess she knew that there was something spiritually wrong with me at the time because a lot of bizarre things would happen to me that she monitored me a lot. I didn’t know what was going on, but that is why knowledge is power. If I had known what I know now, I think I would have suffered less back then.

These types of things used to happen to me when I was living in Kenya. And that is where I realized I had developed a strong spiritual sensitivity to things that were going on around me. I had extremely sharp discernment as a child because I could literally see evil spirits operating in some people, but at that time, I didn’t know what it was that I was seeing because I lacked knowledge. All I know is that these spiritual attacks that I experienced helped me strengthen my ability to be able to tell the difference between genuine individuals and evil individuals (this is called discernment).

I think that the Lord allowed me to go through this hell so that I could sharpen my discernment for the future. So when I see a movie like The Exorcist and all of that, I sympathize with the demoniacally oppressed girl, because to some extent, I was going through similar things. Sometimes I would faint, feel confusion, puke blood or have difficulty sleeping because I would be oppressed all night long from a force I could not see. These oppressive experiences affected my ability to concentrate and would sometimes leave me feeling “zoned out”. To the undiscerning individual, I may have just appeared to be lazy or something, but I was physically, spiritually and emotionally exhausted from fighting all night long with something I could not see. I ended up being pretty suicidal too because I wanted all of this oppression to end but I didn’t know how to end it. This is why it is important to gain knowledge about the things you do not know because it will preserve your life. If I had not received the answers concerning why I was being oppressed by spiritual forces I could not see as soon as I did, I think I would have ultimately committed suicide just to end the torment and some of you wouldn’t be reading this blog, you’d be reading an epitaph, but praise God, that is not the case 😀 .

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.

Image result for spiritual deliverance

I praise God for blessing me with the answers that I needed at the right time through my mum at the time that I truly needed it, otherwise this post wouldn’t have existed. I guess that’s why I’m interested in deliverance ministry in particular. There are certain things that open doors for demonic oppression to operate in a person’s life. Some of these things could be from undeserved punishment (i.e. physical, verbal and/or sexual abuse), bloodline sins (i.e. if you have a history of relatives who practiced witchcraft, voodoo, wicca, the black arts etc), personal sins (willful disobedience – engaging in activities that could lead you to be oppressed such as abusing drugs, illicit sexual misconduct, illegal activities – stealing, murder, rape etc), all of these types of activities open doors for demonic oppression to operate in a persons life. If not on the primary offender, it can fall on the third and forth generation of the offender. This is called Iniquity.

you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,

keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.”

‘The Lord is longsuffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He by no means clears the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation.

you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,

Sometimes people face spiritual oppression in their lives and in their homes undeservingly because they are simply unaware of the bloodline sins that have been passed down to them from generation to generation because of a sinful act performed by some relative in their past. Such sins don’t leave the generational line until it has punished someone. That is why REPENTANCE is key to an individuals deliverance from such spiritual oppression. You may not have been the primary offender that opened the door to such oppression, but it is important to seek the Lord to forgive your family for opening up any doors that lead any of your family members to be oppressed by forces that they cannot see in the first place.

James 5:16 [Full Chapter]

Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much

please let Your ear be attentive and Your eyes open, that You may hear the prayer of Your servant which I pray before You now, day and night, for the children of Israel Your servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel which we have sinned against You. Both my father’s house and I have sinned.

Image result for Rebecca Brown MD booksIf you are going through some difficult times and are wondering where the source of all your problems are coming from, consider that there maybe some bloodline sins that may have been committed by a past family member that could be contributing to some of the problems you are facing today. Poverty is also a curse that can operate in a family line because of iniquity that has not been confessed to. Sometimes, people are unable to prosper because of certain curses still operating in their generational line. You go to work but you still can’t make enough and you’re constantly in an endless cycle of borderline poverty because something is capping your ability to prosper. These are also signs of a generational/bloodline curse(s) operating in your life. The only way to break from these curses is through the power of repentance.

Ask the Lord to forgive your family for any participation in anything that opened doors for curses to operate in your life. Ask the Lord to forgive from the third to forth generational line of curses so that your familial line is completely free from all the curses that have been passed on down the line and into your life. The Lord will deliver you and your household when you seek Him for divine restoration, forgiveness and order in your life. Renounce any participation known or unknown in the things of the occult, which also includes the reading of horoscopes, going to hand readings, participation using the Ouija board, using magic etc etc. All of these types of things open up unnecessary doors for hell to operate in your life. Repentance is the key to salvation. 

Image result for rebecca brown md booksI remember, when I lived in China, there was this art teacher that really wanted to recruit me into the “Ba’hai faith”. He didn’t like my so-called Christianity and faith in God so he often harassed me in the sense by mocking me of my faith in God and tried everything he could possibly do to shake my faith in God. A part of me was like “Listen buddy, if you’ve only known the hell I’ve been through and the deliverance I’ve experienced through the power of God, you’d understand why I believe the way that I do”. He was hell bent on shaking my faith in God but I stood my ground. It was kind of bizarre to me why he was so hell bent on shaking my faith. I couldn’t understand for the life of me why he was obsessed with me, because even a guy friend that I had in the same art class noticed this teacher’s strange behaviour towards me and thought I should “watch out”. That’s why I say to you parents, do not be passive and oblivious about the goings ons with your children. There are people out there targeting your children to lead them astray. You have to remain vigilant and teach your children to stay on the right path no matter how many people try to lead them astray. It is your responsibility to teach a child in the way that they should go so that they do not depart from it.

Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.

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.

Well I think I’ve written quite a bit today with respect to the topic of spiritual warfare. This is just some food for thought and if any of you have questions, please holla! If any of you would like some book recommendations on the topic of spiritual warfare, you can also holla! I have many book recommendations. I would definitely recommend Rebecca Brown MD’s Books He Came to set the Captives Free; Unbroken Curses; Prepare for War and Vessels of Honor. There are more books I could recommend but these were the first ones I read that spiritually empowered me to loose myself from the spiritual oppression I had experienced most of my life and would recommend these ones first to anybody. Happy reading and God bless everybody! 😀

Greater is He that is in You

Image result for jesus loves sinnersHello People!

I’ve been thinking about what I should write about lately because I have so many things I want to write about but I think one thing I should speak on is about the diluted Word that is being spoken in churches nowadays. I’m not saying that every church speaks a diluted Word to their congregation, but I think that what we need to speak about is with respect to spiritual warfare. I do believe in teaching people about Godly living etc, because that is indeed necessary; however, we also need to confront the issue of dealing with spiritual warfare, especially in North America.

I find that these days, youth in particular are being introduced into a lot of activities that don’t line up with God’s Word where I find that some are engaging in activities related to New Age Movements and subtle forms of witchcraft. This promotes rebellious behaviour and invites demonic oppression to influence their lives as they continue to engage in activities that do not line up with God’s word.

When I was in middle school, I knew people who took drugs, drank alcohol, slept around and engaged in weird activities such as wicca and witchcraft related activities etc and can tell you that their lives have never been the same since then. Even when I warned people not to participate in some of these activities, some people ignored me and went on to do whatever it is that they wanted to do because they were rebellious in behaviour. No one could tell them what to do and when to do it because no one could “run their lives”. I believe some of them thought I was a “goodie-two-shoes” type of chick, but I simply don’t care how they viewed me, I was more concerned about their souls. Some of the individuals that I tried to mentor came from broken families or single-parent homes and either dropped out of high school because of pregnancy or drug-related issues or illegal activities that got them arrested. However, there were those that listened to me who also allowed me to mentor them with their studies and were able to stop their downward spiral into hell and actually graduate high school with honors. You don’t have to accept a defeatist way of life when God gives you the option to travel on a road that will lead you to prosper.

In the Bible, it is mentioned that “Wisdom cries out in the streets”, but who pays attention?

Wisdom cries aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the markets

Job 28:28

And to man He said, ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom, And to depart from evil is understanding.’”

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.

I remember mentoring a student that was failing miserably and encouraged them by speaking positively into their lives and making them believe in themselves which helped them to do better in their studies. One student I tried mentoring gave me a hard time because he would run off each time I was supposed to mentor him because he was resigned to his failure and didn’t believe anyone could help him graduate . The teachers had given up on the student as well and thought that by offering me extra credit as an incentive to mentor him would eliminate their need to having to deal with this student. I gladly accepted their offer for the extra credit as the incentive to mentor him since they had given up trying to deal with him because I thought to myself “How hard could this be?”.  Boy, did I never see what I had accepted coming.

I remember giving this kid a piece of my mind for running away whenever I had to mentor him and shouted at him for wasting my lunch time looking for him everywhere because I was supposed to mentor him as per the teachers request. I know that he was depressed because he had failed a grade and he didn’t think that he had anything to look forward to because he had resigned himself to being a failure that could not succeed in doing anything, which was a lie that he had chosen to believe whole heartedly even though it was not the truth. He needed to understand that running away from your problems doesn’t mean you are facing your issues. You have to confront that which you fear and face it head on. You can only overcome, when you face what you fear in the face. I gave him a hard time because from what I understand, he’s had various tutors that tried to tutor him but because he kept running away all the time they gave up on him. I on the other hand did not give up on him. I stalked the guy until he couldn’t run away from me anymore. Sometimes, when I look back on the things I did, I think to myself “Wow Sherline, I can’t believe you did that!” lol. At the time, I didn’t really care that I chased him around, because I believed in my heart that this kid was hurting and needed to know that he could achieve success if he tried.

Long story short, I caught him and he no longer ran away from me anymore because he knew I could find him even if he tried to hide. I was pretty relentless so he stopped wasting my time and let me tutor him. After a month of tutoring him, his grades shot up from a D average to a B Average. By the time I was done with him, he was an A average student. He could not believe he could achieve such results. He started to respect me and was grateful that I didn’t give up on him even though he thought he couldn’t make it. I believe that God is like that with us. Sometimes, we resign ourselves to our failures and assume that just because we have failed in something we define ourselves on the basis of that failure. God doesn’t see us in that light. He sees your full potential and where you can actually go if you apply yourself. You are more than what you think you are. You are an overcomer. You can win, you can achieve great things. You may face setbacks, sickness, stumbling blocks, disappointments, and different kinds of hurdles, but nothing can truly stop you from achieving success. The only thing that can stop you is your defeatist mind-set. Just because you fall down, doesn’t mean you have to stay down. You can get up again.  Jesus died for us, but guess what, He rose up from the dead for us . So we all have the ability to rise up from our ashes and dust ourselves off from the past that can’t hold you down from your prosperous future. The resurrecting power of Christ enables us to overcome every defeat and failure we have ever faced and rise from the ashes.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

How we view the concept of “Failure” will determine whether or not we can rise from the ashes. The resurrecting power of Christ should tell you that you can rise from any failure that you face. Your mindset is what you must guard with respect to any obstacle that you face in this lifetime. I have faced my own kinds of hurdles, but the one thing I have decided to do is to keep on going. You know that saying that says “When the going gets tough, the tough keep going”. That is what we ought to do. Just because you hit the ground doesn’t mean that you have to stay there. You can get up again because you have the resurrecting power of Jesus Christ living inside of you that enables you to rise up from the ashes of defeat. Do not allow naysayers to keep you in the realm of defeat when the power of God is saying “Get up and Go!” You have the ability to overcome. All you need to do is believe in yourself. Believe that you have Christ in you, the hope of Glory. 

To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

I have two songs that are off the hook by Blanca where the first one is called Greater is He to encourage your spirit today.

The second song by Blanca is called Who I Am. I pray that these songs uplift you and encourage you today. God Bless Everybody! 😀

Not Backing Down

Hello People! 

I know I already posted a song for today, but this song by Blanca feat. Tedashii called  Not Backing Down is just too hot not to share with y’all. Let us fight the good fight of faith and not back down no matter what adversities we may face. I’m still contemplating on what future posts I want to write about because I feel I should talk more on the subject of Spiritual Warfare, but I’m still praying about what it is that the Lord wants me to share on my blog so for now, enjoy this song everybody! Be encouraged no matter what is going on. God says that “You’ll make it alright, but you gotta be strong!” (Can you tell that I got that from a song? lol!) God Bless Everybody! 😀

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Never to Close

Hello People!

Today, I just want to post this song by Adia called Never to Close. Sometimes, when we want to draw close to God it feels like we’re still far from Him as we face our weaknesses. However, God still wants to draw nearer and nearer to you not matter what weaknesses you face because His love for you is UNCONDITIONAL. So my encouragement to you today is that you keep pursuing God with all of your heart, mind and your soul, and you will find Him and He will answer you. You are not alone or as lonely as you think you are because God is with you every step of the way that you take in your life. May this song encourage and bless your spirit today. God bless you everybody 😀

But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, That I may declare all Your works.

for the law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God.

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

Love is All We Need

Hello People!

I just had to post this song by Korey Bowie called Love Is All  to minister to your spirit today.  I think that for people that are in a courtship or marital relationship, you have to be aware that you may face a lot of spiritual warfare when it comes to your relationships that are geared to destroy your connection with your significant other. I believe that a relationship involving one woman and one man isn’t just about the two people. I believe that when two people include God in the relationship, they become a three-corded rope that cannot be broken no matter what adversities they may face.Image result for jesus loves

When I think of such a relationship, I am reminded of my grandparents who went through hell when they got married. They experienced hardship which included rearing children, experiencing ridicule by family members that thought they wouldn’t amount to anything, and yet they stuck together through all that and God blessed them. My grandfather became an ambassador and traveled with the family from country to country despite the hardship he had experienced trying to feed 5 children. Many of the family members thought that my grandparents wouldn’t amount to anything because it seems like hardship seemed to be something that was trying to weigh them down, but it didn’t stop their faith in God and God came through and blessed them with houses they didn’t have to build, experiences in foreign countries that others would have envied to have experienced, and connections to people that they never thought they’d ever be connected to for future business needs.

Image result for Jesus lovesDo not take the people you have in your current life for granted. You just don’t know where they’ll be tomorrow. Do not pay attention to those that make fun of you today, they don’t know where you are headed tomorrow when you have God on your side. It is always important to have God be the center of your life not matter what adversities you face. I am facing my own adversity with my short-term memory loss and who knows who could be laughing at me today concerning this sickness, but I am focused on my tomorrow because I know that if God can take me through this, then the victory is already won. I am not concerned by other people’s opinion of me concerning my today. Sometimes, when I go for my assessments, some of these practitioners tell me negative things, but you have to guard your mind from the negative confession of others and remember what God says about you. “I have the mind of Christ even in my crisis”. I don’t care about the report of others, I care about the report of the Lord. Whose report shall you believe? 

O Lord, open my lips, And my mouth shall show forth Your praise.

At the end of the day, you need to believe in the report of the Lord. Meditate on what God says about you through His Word (The BIBLE). Just because people ridicule you today, or are naysayers concerning your life today, doesn’t mean you have to accept their report. Remember that you are fearfully and wonderfully made, your soul should know this very well.

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.

There comes a point where you just don’t concern yourself with people that are not out for your best interests. People may love you today and hate you tomorrow, but God’s love for you will always stand firm forever. He is unchanging. He does not waver between two opinions. He remains the same yesterday, today and forever.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Image result for jesus loves

You haven’t got the time to waste with wishy washy individuals that don’t cultivate a good attitude concerning where you will be tomorrow. Surround yourself with positive-minded people. Feed your spirit with words of affirmation. Don’t wait to be acknowledged by people that refuse to acknowledge your existence today. Rather, go out and reach out to those that need to know that there are people out there that do care for them. You are the answer that the world seeks. Stop waiting for people to reach out to you and go out and reach out to others. You’ll be surprised how many doors open for you when you do that. You’ll be surprised by how God will start to bless you when you think outside the box and when you refuse to remain self absorbed. Take some risks and reach out to people that you never thought you’d reach out to. Say hello to a stranger. Smile at someone and try to be the very best person that you can be. The World needs to see that there is a light at every dark tunnel because you exist in the world.

Relationships don’t happen unless two people attempt to reach out to the other. God wants to have a relationship with you. Reach out to Him and see what happens. In the same way with human relationships, if you want to be a friend to someone, you’ve got to step out and reach out to them. Stop waiting for a miracle when you can take action. Doors open for you when you step out in faith.

I have come to a place where I want to surround myself with people who are for real. I’m tired of the wishy washy Christianity that exists today, the pick-n-choose type of “Christians” that “talk the walk”, but don’t really walk the talk”. In no way am I saying that I’m better than them, but I honestly want to be around people who are more transparent, and not pretentious. It’s okay to have weaknesses, but I’d rather talk to a person who’s a drug addict and is for real about their weakness and isn’t ashamed of admitting that they need help than walk around with the “holier-than-thou” group of people how pretend that they’ve never sinned in their entire life and act like they’re saints at all times while judging others with snobby faces looking down on those that need Jesus to help deliver them from the bondages that they face. No more cookie cutter messages, all I want is REAL TALK. Honestly, I could write a blog about all that, but for now, all I want to say is that we need to change our hearts in order to reach the masses. We need to have the heart of Jesus if we want to be effective in evangelizing our reason for believing that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Saviour and is the Only God in this world that we should all follow.

Related imageGod is real, I’ve experienced Him, and I just pray, that if anybody is struggling to believe in Him due to poor experiences from other Christian believers or from people that have steered them away from believing that God truly loves you, I pray that you may forgive those that have hurt you and not allow such experiences from robbing you of a true relationship with Jesus Christ. We are known to be Christians by our love, but unfortunately, not all Christians demonstrate love properly because of hypocrisy. It is my prayer, that people draw near to God regardless of the bad experiences you’ve had with others that don’t really exhibit the true fruits of what a real Christian is like. We are known to be Christians by our Love. I pray that as we go about our daily affairs, we really work on demonstrating that love with power so that people will come to know that Jesus really loves them and He wants to have a relationship with you. I pray that this song I’ve posted here today ministers to your spirit today. God bless you everybody! 😀
