I had to post this song by Elevation Worship called Won’t Stop Now. My favourite part of the song is the keyboard because I know one of the musicians playing on it used to attend the church I used to go to and he sounds amazing with these peeps! Shout out to LJ Mitchell! 🙂
I love the message of this song that talks about seeing miracles by faith and knowing that a breakthrough is coming. I believe that these things are happening even now for people that have been pressing through difficult times and situations thrust upon them that cause them to stumble and fall. Do not rely on your own intelligence to get through a trial. Rely on the One that is able to walk with you in it, and through it and out of it. Jesus will give you the guidance you need to be able to overcome. Just remember this piece of scripture to encourage you when you are faced with a situation that seems dire and when you really just need an answer, a clear answer from God. I pray that this song from Elevation will bless your spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂
Matthew 7:7-8[Full Chapter] [ Keep Asking, Seeking, Knocking ] “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
I hope y’all had an amazing Sunday service this weekend. Honestly, there is just so much craziness going on out there with what happened to the Notre Dame Cathederal in flames this past week and right when we are celebrating The Resurrection of Jesus Christ, for this Easter Sunday weekend. May we keep everyone in prayer as we go through each week in the Lord. I feel like there is so much shifting in this season that we’re in, that we as Christians need to understand that the times are changing rapidly and quickly in that I feel that the Lord will quicken our Spirits to be more vigilant and sharpened to recognize the seasons and times we are living in. The days grow evil with strange occurrences, and tragic events concurring in different parts of the world at seemingly odd times, that we cannot afford to be complacent. We must remain vigilant as the word says:
1 Peter 5:8[Full Chapter] Besober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
Despite this, the Lord also gives us encouragement to remember the following:
And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.”John 10:28-30 NKJV
We need to know who we are in Christ and whose we are in Christ Jesus. Our identity is riding on the fact that we are the salt and light of the Earth. We are the Change that the World needs to see…but “do we add any flavour in the way that we live and do life?”… is the question. I believe that in Celebrating what the Lord Jesus did for us at Calvary, we need to remember why He came in the first place… and that was to restore our identity as Sons of God.
Romans 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.
The Earth is groaning as tragedies take place, but the Lord is waiting on us to arise. We are the answers that we seek. So for this Resurrection weekend, meditate on the fact that the Lord Jesus didn’t die and resurrect for us in Vain. He did it so that we would no longer be captives to sin and we would be empowered to greater things in His name. The windows of Heaven opened for us when He resurrected for us, so give God the highest praise you have in your heart to Him today. I pray that this song sung by Deitrick Haddon called He Carried the Cross For Me blesses and ministers to you today as you think about the Goodness of Our Lord Jesus Christ. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂
Today, I just want to post this amazing song sung by Elevation Worship called Here With You.There is something about being in the presence of God that satisfies my soul. For me worship is what gets me in His Presence. I pray that as you listen to this song, may it fill you and minister to you today. So much has happened in my life within a short period of time this year that it’s amazing that we’ve just only ended the first quarter and started the 2nd quarter of this year. I believe that a lot of things are shifting in this season as we are entering into the Spring season of this year for those that live in the Northern Hemisphere. I believe that in this season, New things will start to emerge in people’s lives. New positioning, new friends, new opportunities as we enter into this New Season that the Lord is Springing us into.
The most important thing about this season is to involve God in all of your plans. In fact, God should be a part of every plan you have in your life so be prepared to move when He tells you to move and be prepared to shift when He tells you to shift. When you follow what you are led in your heart to do by the leading of the Holy Spirit, you will prosper as you step out in faith. Sometimes the miracles people desire for their lives require them to move at the “right timing” when an opportunity presents itself. The Lord doesn’t make it a mystery what opportunities will present themselves as a sign that you must move forward to it because these opportunities will spring up and spring forward at the “right time”. We just have to learn to recognize when the opportunity is happening at the right time.
Proverbs 3:6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
Joshua 1:8 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.
When something is happening at impeccable timing, that should be a spiritual cue for you to recognize that you need to pay attention and move when the Holy Spirit is telling you to move. The signs for change will be all around you as people start to move in or out of your life and when certain things require you to put your hand up to pursue an opportunity that rarely presents itself. Ask God to direct your path in all that you do, and your way will be made prosperous is my main message for today. I pray that as you listen to this song, may it bless your spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂
I just want to drop this song that’s my jam right about now from Jor’Dan Armstrong called All I know.
This song is just awesome to me that it makes me want to bop my head to the beat. I love how he talks about “Jesus is at the top”. I believe that the Lord wants us to make Him a priority in our lives. It’s easy to put your job first, your house, your car, your kids and family first, but ultimately, all these things we tend to put first are things we wouldn’t have had, had we not had God by our side. We can easily take the things we have for granted and assume that such things and people will always be there in our lives, but that’s just not true. What if one day, these things that you tend to put first disappears? What can you say that you have left, hmmm?
Matthew 24:35– Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.
Mark 13:31 – Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.
Luke 21:33– Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.
Even the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke repeat the fact that many things in our lives will pass away but it is the Lord’s words that will never pass away. God’s Word (THE BIBLE) stands firm forever, people! That is why we must live by the Word of God and seek to live in such a way that God would want us to…and that is to live a life pleasing and edifying to the Lord. How we live must scream “I love Jesus!”through our words, deeds and actions. It doesn’t mean that as Christians, we will always get this right, because we are all human and we do tend to slip up a lot, but what I’m getting at, is that we should aim to strive to live by the Word of God by making it a conscious decision to live and act as Christ-like as possible in all the things we do and in all our endeavors.
Do things as if you are doing it for the Lord.
If we make our lifestyle reflect this goal, we as Christians would live and do life differently. Just think about this today and mediate on what it means to live life and do things like as if you are doing it for the Lord. The level at which we serve others is they same manner as if you’ve done it for the Lord.
Matthew 25:40 – And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
Matthew 25:45 – Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’
I pray that this song blesses your Spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂
Yesterday, I heard some devastating news that a friend of mine that I was supposed to meet up for lunch this week passed away in hospital. I had just spoken to her last week and she was so excited to hear from me because I was in the midst of moving out of my apartment and into my house that I had bought with my twin sister that I couldn’t meet up with her last week and so we had planned to see each other this week.
Last Friday, we talked for more than an hour on the phone because we just had so much to say and I knew that she was battling cancer in hospital and wanted to meet up with her since she had just finished going through rounds of chemotherapy treatments. I remember her being excited to think that I’d visit her and I understood that she was feeling weak so I had wanted to visit her at her place but found out early yesterday from an unknown caller calling my cell number who ended up being her brother calling me to inform me that she had passed away this past Sunday and was calling numbers from her cell phone of all the people she last spoken to in order to inform them of the unprecedented news. As you can imagine, I was devastated and shocked because I was just laughing with her the day before that I couldn’t believe that that was my last conversation with her.
I remember praying with her when she was on the phone and telling her that I was praying for her recovery to which she was happy to receive; however, the Lord took her home. She had been battling cancer for quite a long time and I knew that she was tired of fighting it but I am thankful that she had the strength to talk to me for more than an hour on the phone before the Lord took her home. As much as the news has saddened me, I believe that she’s in a better place and that’s why I’m posting this song by Tedashii feat. Crowder called Home that I dedicate to my friend who passed away.
I feel, that no matter what it is that you are going through in life, put your life in God’s hands. My friend was aware of how I myself had battled a sickness that I had to recover from for over two years of fighting for recovery and always encouraged me and made me believe that I’d get better to which I too would encourage her since it seems we were both battling health issues. When one is down, the other is there to pick them up. We are there to lift others up when they are down and that is what she was like to me.
Psalm 91:11-12(NKJV)11For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. 12 In their hands they shall [a]bear you up, Lest you [b]dash your foot against a stone.
God wants us to remember that in life, He plants people in your life that will be there for you in the good and bad times and that such people are hard to find nowadays. When you have people like that in your life, cherish them, love them and don’t take their presence in your life for granted because you never know when God will take them Home to go to Heaven. This also applies to your family members as well. Cherish them and remember that tomorrow’s not promised and that today is a gift so make the most of your todays as much as possible and thank God for tomorrow. I pray that this song ministers to anyone reading this post today. God Bless You!
It’s been a while since my last post. I’ve been so busy trying to move out of my apartment and into my new house that I’ve finally got internet setup and I still have some unpacking to do. Also, I had lost my bag in a shop yesterday in that I went home forgetting that I had set my bag with all my belongings…my purse, my IDs etc… I was livid. I had been shopping with my sister yesterday running errands at various stores and getting things for the house that I left my bag somewhere in one of the stores we have visited. I searched and searched and couldn’t find it. We drove to all the stores we visited that day and still couldn’t find it. I was TOTALLY freaking out!
We eventually gave up and I went home feeling deflated and discouraged, but my twin sister comforted me and we both decided to pray in agreement to God to have my bag returned with nothing missing, nothing broken or stolen for the next day. For the past few days, the Holy Spirit has been telling me the same thing “Ask Me and you Shall Receive”. Can you believe that today, (which was the next day somebody!) we went to the store and my bag was found! I had to give a shout of praise unto God for that! Nothing was missing and nothing was stolen. I was beyond relieved…I was in full praise unto God and that is why I want to post this song for today by Jubilee Worship called No Bondage.
The song is pretty inspirational in that when you think of how some of us were before knowing Christ, you begin to realize the type of bondages that remained in your life and in your mind where you placed limitations of who you could potentially be if youoperated at your full potential.
It is true that there are people you can break barriers without knowing God, and accomplish extraordinary things, but it really is God that complete’s a man or woman at the end of the day no matter what one is able to accomplish with their talents. Some people can gain the whole world filled with pleasures, riches, fame and Glory and still fill emotionally incapacitated and empty inside despite having everything. Think of the celebrities who commit suicide despite appearing to have everything that others would want. Why would one choose to kill themselves when they are wealthy and can have the things that they want at the tips of their fingers? It just goes to show you that wealth and prestige is not what completes a man or woman’s soul, it’s GOD PEOPLE!
[ Psalm 14 ] [ For the director of music. Of David. ] The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.
For me, God is everything. People may try to sway you away from believing in Him for their own various reasons, but I’ve encountered so many supernatural experiences of His presence in my life that I cannot deny that He exists. God Exists people…and maybe you have an issue with that…but it would profit you to know God is real and alive and that He really really loves you even when you aren’t perfect. God’s love for you endures forever…so I pray that you seek Him with all your heart and you will find Him.
Psalm 136[Full Chapter] [ Thanksgiving to God for His Enduring Mercy ] Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy enduresforever. Oh, give thanks to the God of gods! For His mercy enduresforever. Oh, give thanks to the Lord of lords! For His mercy enduresforever
So when you listen to t his song, I want people to think about how grateful you are that you know God for those that believe in Him, and for those that are sitting on the fence about whether they want to follow Jesus, think about what it is that you are doing and where you are right now…. Ask yourself — Do you feel empty on the inside? Do you have all the things you’ve ever wanted and if you do, does it truly fulfill you? Do you know Jesus or do you really believe that He doesn’t exist? Are you content with believing that God does not exist in your life? Have you ever wondered in your life’s journey…What if I’m wrong…what if God does exist? Have you ever asked yourself that question?
My prayer is that for those sitting on the fence of their belief system, I pray that you will come to know the Lord and click on my Salvation Prayer page located at the top banner of my post. God is indeed REAL and He cares and loves you unconditionally. I pray that you will believe that and that may this song bless your spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂
I am just rockin’ to this song sung by Danny Gokey called Haven’t Seen It Yet. Sometimes when you are waiting for something amazing to happen to your life, you can become distracted by where other people are in life in comparison to yourself. This is where you have to refocus your mind to NOT focus on things that other people have, and focus on the ONE that is able to give you what you desire and really need on time.
It is important to remember that GOD is always in the habit of not withholding any Good thing from you. His desire is always for His people to prosper and be in good health as your soul prospers as it says in:
3 John 1:2 – Beloved, I pray that in every way you may succeedand prosper and be in good health[physically], just as [I know] your soul prospers [spiritually].
It is so important to not lose focus on God when we start to prosper. When things start to go well in your life, it is always for the same purpose which is to draw people to God’s love and message of TRUTH. Yes, you will get some people that won’t be receptive initially with the Message of God’s Hope for their lives, but that is when you go beyond mere words and start to demonstrate God’s love for people with your ACTIONS. It is true when people say, that ACTIONS speak LOUDER than WORDS, so for this year, rather than simply preaching a message, try to demonstrate God’s love for people through your actions, and pray for them and watch how the Holy Spirit will draw their inner being that thirsts to receive the TRUE Love of God in their lives.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV) 5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall [a]direct your paths.
I remember the day I chose Jesus as my Saviour, how my eyes and ears opened up dramatically to what God’s love really meant in my life. In the same way, I’ve come to realize that when it comes to seeking the Salvation of others to receive the message of God for their lives, the best way is to pray that the Lord shows you what method and way is best to reach a person. It’s better to reach people in a way that is meaningful to them rather than using traditional methods to evangelize. God has given us the ability to be creative in our approach, so go beyond the typical and strive to seek God to show you NEW ways of doing the same thing but it having a farther reach and huge impact.
I believe that we HAVE NOT if we ASK NOT, and the HOLY SPIRIT in me keeps telling me to tell His people to KEEP ASKING and to pray without ceasing until what you’ve asked for comes to pass. However, when we pray asking God to give us something, we should not ask amiss for selfish reasons. We must only ask Got to help us with something with PURE MOTIVATIONS! I can’t emphasize that part enough, because some people get disappointed if what they asked for isn’t what they receive. Assess your heart when seek God to do something for you. Are you asking with pure motivations, or impure motivations. Check yourself before you wreck yourself!
James 4:2-4 (NKJV)
2 You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and [a]war. [b]Yet you do not have because you do not ask. 3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures. 4 [c]Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
So remember DO NOT LOSE HOPE and Keep BELIEVING. You are closer than you think you are to your breakthrough in your prayer life. I pray that as you listen to this song, it will encourage you to keep pressing through for your blessings and promises that God has for you and your life. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂
I just had to post two awesome songs by Todd Dulaney where the first is called Let it Flow (Live from Africa). This song is off the chain! The second song is called Stand Forever also by Todd Dulaney. That song is off the hook as well! The beat is just amazing in that it just puts a spring to my step literally and literally as we transition out of our “Winter” seasons and into “Spring” for those of us that live in the Northern Hemisphere.
Who knows that when you are in a state of transition, you have to change your behaviour, your mindset and your habits. When going through a winter season you put on heavier clothing just to keep warm and find yourself covering 80% of your body just to ensure that the cold does not impact your health in any way. But as the Winter season starts to come to an end, the weather starts to warm up, and little by little you find yourself shedding all that heavy clothing, and start to dress a little lighter as your body starts to acclimate to the change in the season.
Why am I talking about this? It’s because I want to draw your attention to the fact that when the seasons in the natural change, we too need to adjust and change our behaviour to adjust to the new season. What you did last season, won’t work in the new season. As Christians, we need to understand that we need to always be spiritually sensitive to when God is moving us to a new place in Him. You can’t maintain the same mentality of last season when He shifts you into a NEWdirection and a NEWplace. Your mindset must adjust to the New things that God wants to do in order for you to embrace the New things He will do in the New SEASON in your life. Some people remain stuck where they are for so long because they simply refused to adjust their attitude. God can’t work with a hard-headed individual that is unable to bend to His Will for your life.
Jeremiah 29:11 New King James Version (NKJV) –11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Isaiah 43:19[Full Chapter] Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.
The second song that I want to post today is also by Todd Dulaney is called Stand Forever. I guess you could say I’m in worship mode right about now, lol 🙂 ! When you’ve done all that you can do, you must learn to stand. Stand on your convictions about your Faith in God. People can try to sway you with their own opinions about where you should be in life, but you must learn to stand firm in your faith about where you believe God is taking you. Respect your mentors, and the helpers that God brings to you to help you walk out your destiny. And believe it or not, sometimes the helpers God brings to you aren’t necessarily Christians, so keep your mind and heart open for God to use the foolish things in life to confound the wise and the weaker things to confound the mighty in your life.
1 Corinthians 1:27 – But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty;
God has a way of being EXTRA in all that He does to show you how wonderful He is to you in your life. We as Christians just need to be humble and accepting of the New Things He does when He starts to shift our focus in a NEW DIRECTION. So analyze where you are right now and consider that you have to change your mindset in order to move in a NEW DIRECTION in your life. Are you willing to do what seems foolish in the eyes of others to confound them? Ask yourself these questions today. I pray that this song blesses you today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂
I had to post this awesome song by Todd Delaney called You’re Doing it All Again. This song is off the hook! Man, it made me want to dance. I feel that this song can encourage anybody to remember that the Lord who is able to make the lame walk, the blind to see, the mute to speak is the same God that is able to turn around what was meant for evil in your life to be for your God since you love the Lord. He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
I pray that as you listen to this song, may it uplift your Spirit to know that you are not forsaken-ed, you are not forgotten. The Lord is your provider, Jehovah Jireh.
Genesis 22:14 –And Abraham called the name of the place, The-Lord-Will-Provide; as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of the Lord it shall be provided.”
He is the One that provides provision for the vision He has for your life, so just continue to fix your eyes on Jesus, the Author and finisher of your Faith, Amen! I pray that this song uplifts your spirit today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂
I know, I know, it’s been a while since I last posted. Yep, life has been busy for me lately, but not busy enough that I don’t want to give a shout of Praise unto my God!
Today, I want to bless your spirit with this amazing song by Anthony Evans called See You Again. The song really speaks to those who have experienced trials and tribulations and yet despite all these experiences, you still somehow see God in your circumstances that you have that strength inside of you to call on the Name of the Lord.
No matter what trial you face, never forget to call on the name of the Lord.
Joel 2:32 –And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, As the Lord has said, Among theremnant whom the Lord calls.
Acts 2:21 –And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be saved.’
Romans 10:13 –For “whoever calls on the name of the Lordshall be saved.”
In this world, we may experience trouble, but remember what the Lord has said in His Word (The Bible), “Take Heart, for I have overcome the World” (John 16:33NIV).
John 16:33[Full Chapter] NKJV These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
Isn’t that Good NEWS?!!!! You have overcome the world! You may feel pressed down, and crushed, but that doesn’t mean you are forsaken-ed. God is and will always be with you through the trials and will guide you to overcome when you keep Him in your heart and always in your prayer life. Greater things are yet to come ladies and gentlemen, so keep believing for the greater and be encouraged that even when things seem bleak, there will be a light that will shine at the end of the tunnel that will guide you to greener pastures.
Some of you have gone through a desert season, but the season is over. It’s time to rise up and move. The question is, are you willing to move? Sometimes, remaining “comfortable”with where you are won’t take you to where God wants you to be. And it is at those times that we can get complacent in our comfort that sometimes the Lord allows certain things to shake in your life to get you to move you to where He wants you to go.
When things start to shake in your life will you grumble and complain, or take it as a sign that the Lord wants you to shift in this season?
People want God to speak to them, but when He finally does and tells you to do something, will you actuallylisten and do what He asks of You?Ask yourself these questions today as you listen to this song today. I pray that it ministers to you. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂
