The Love of God’s saving Grace


 

Testimony

Hi Everybody,

I just had to share this personal testimony because God is doing amazing things. First off, I got a car everybody with my sister! Wooohooo!

Last year, some of you know that I lost a job and God blessed me with a new one. I lost a car, and now I have a new one. I lost some friends (so-called) but now I have new ones. I left my previous Church out of obedience because God showed me it was time for me to move and step into a new thing and now I’m part a new Church called the Living Proof Centre – Mississauga which is a branch of Transforming Life Centre in Ottawa.

Let me just say…. God is able to give you a renewed spirit and a renewed strength when you put your Trust in the One that is able to take you to that place of prosperity when you believe in the Jeremiah 29:11 promise.

The stuff that is happening to me now….I can’t even begin to tell you…it’s a testimony in the making. I just want to give God praise! I sowed in Tears, but God has shown me that I’ll reap in Joy.

Psalm 126:5

Those who sow in tears Shall reap in joy.

Right now, I am in a new church that is starting from scratch but let me tell you, I believe in what God has for this year of 2014. He showed me in a dream that whosoever is part of building His church this year, He will bless double for their trouble. Ever since I moved by faith and have started to attend this new church which God has shown me to help build, strange and amazing things have been happening to both me and my twin sister. In fact, I got my car within the 2nd service of this new church start up after much prayer and fasting and my pastors blessing us with a prophetic word that came from their mouths.

I still am a praise and worshiper in this church and I will serve the Lord all the rest of my days. I lost my Grandmother last year, but she showed me that God is very important in my life. She died having served the Lord and through her death, I’ve come to know that God is serious about families and building up His children to be strong in Him. May I live serving my awesome God for the rest of my life.

Another Testimony:

Today, is Resurrection Sunday. We had a service last Sunday where three young women came and attended our branch service for the first time. My Pastor gave these three ladies a ride back home after service ended . During the ride, He spoke to them feeling lead by the Holy spirit to tell them “I don’t know where you are or where you are going right now, but I feel lead to tell you that you are not going to the right place and that you are not in the right place right now”.

One of the three ladies heard what he had said in the car and incidentally, the two  of them were supposed to go to a club that same Sunday later on in the evening. This young lady was so troubled by what my Pastor had said that she decided not to go to the club; however, her friend, whom she always goes with everywhere had decided to go anyway. That same night, her friend was shot in the club. She should have been there with her friend at the club but because she felt a conviction in her spirit from the words of my Pastor, she did not go with her friend and was saved from a tragic bullet that could have potentially been shot at her….

She came to our Sunday service this morning for our resurrection service and praised God in a way you cannot even begin to understand.  Even after the service had ended, she kept praying and praising God as we let praise music play in the background.  She knows that God saved her that day…that is why she is living proof that the saving Grace of God is still alive!

God is amazing and God is sooooooo good that I feel like crying as I think of this testimony this morning.

God loves all his children. It doesn’t matter where you are at right now, God will meet you at where you are right now and take you to where He is because in Him, there is safety, there is love and there is strength.

I saw this lady and was in awe of what the Lord had done to save her. Her friend is in our prayers and we believe that whatever was meant for evil, God will turn whatever it was for the good of those that love the Lord.

Keep praying and remember, God is in the business  of restoring your Faith this year, Reviving worship this year and Renewing your strength and resources this year, and He is still in the business of saving souls this Year as well. Let us intercede for others and pray that God not only brings the harvest, but protects the harvest from locusts that want to steal peoples provision for God’s vision for their lives. They who believe shall enter in God’s courts and give Him the highest praise.

This song comes to mind by R. Kelly called You Saved Me as I think of this young lady’s testimony. May it bless your spirit today in Jesus’ Name, Amen!

Stay blessed everybody. God Loves You!

Resurrection Sunday


Happy Resurrection Sunday everybody!

Jesus is Alive! The grave is empty and death has lost its sting! Rejoice and be Glad, for Jesus is our Kinsmen Redeemer!

Joshua 24:15

And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
Jesus said to him, “I athe way the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. 
Revelation 3:20

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.

Be blessed today! :D

Save Me!


Hi Everybody!

I pray that you all are having a wonderful weekend. I’ve been getting a series of prayer requests this past week with a common theme seeking the Lord’s divine intervention in many of the requests. Just know that there is power in prayer and intercession. No prayer request is too small or too great for God to hear. So keep praying and keep believing and keep trusting in God. Hope is the key that unlocks the door that leads you to what you need. Keep your Hope and Faith alive.

Today, This worship song is in my spirit in reflection towards those that are needing God to do something in their circumstances.  It’s by Kiki “Kierra” Sheard called Save Me. 

May this song minister to your spirit today. God bless you everybody. :D

Don’t throw out friendship evangelism


Hi Everybody!

I just wanted to post this video out there to get you to start thinking about how you want to invite people the church. Be strategic and be genuine is my two cents. This video is amusing and it just really gets you thinking about how we go about our Jesus thing.

We need to demonstrate love before we give the Word to anyone.

Jesus shows us like the woman at the well that He was more concerned about her well being than about talking about Himself to her.  Showing her that He cared about her, drew her to evangelize about Him simply because Jesus demonstrated His love for her through action without  prejudice or arrogance. We have to be careful about not appearing lofty or arrogant about what we know about Jesus and show people that we care. Jesus tells us “love one another as I have loved you”. So why is it that we aren’t demonstrating this one instruction? Are we too proud to follow His words? Are we too Self-absorbed to even care? Does it even matter? We really need to dig deep and consider that being a “Christian” doesn’t mean thrusting your ideas at someone…it’s about understanding who you are and what you believe and demonstrating that Love is personified through the actions of Jesus, so in believing in Him, we ought to do the same. But are we???? food for thought.

John 13:34-35

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

 

So the next time you go about your evangelism thing, remember this one important fact:

People don’t care about what you know, they want to know  about how much you care.

Jesus showed us this example countless times through the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Think about the effect it has of showing how you care about someone, you draw them to Christ when you show them how much you care. The question is, when was the last time you reached out to care about someone else apart from yourself? Being self-absorbed draws people away from what you are about so rethink your attitude and start the change within in order for you to have impact throughout.

Read the story about the Samarian woman at the well in John 4  and think about it during this Easter/Passover season.

Enjoy this clip and God bless you everybody! Love y’all! ;)

Window of Blessings Rain Down on ME!


Hi Everybody! :) I just wanted to post this awesome song by Canton Jones  called “Window”.  I believe in this year of Double perfection, Double Grace, Double Harvest and Double for your Trouble, that it’s time to shout out to the Heavens that the Windows of blessings are open over your head. That’s right everybody! Praise the Lord for these open Doors that no man can shut and the open windows of blessings going to rain all over you. For some of you, you may have been going through tough times, in fact…really really difficult times that you maybe wondering when will this time of trouble end for you and your household. Just remember that even in those times of despair, trouble is not your portion in life. Jeremiah 29:11 is your portion in life. Trouble will only last a season, and then once you have persevered, pushed through and fought the good fight, blessings will come your way for every tear shed, for every hour you were left in darkness. Trust me, been in that place before especially last year, and let me tell you, God is faithful to those that are faithful to Him. FAITH is the Key that Unlocks every door and window in your life.  One principle that I must state is important to reiterate time and time again is the principle of   Seed —> Time —>Harvest. Seed into your breakthrough in order to obtain your Harvest. Farmers expect to yield a harvest after they have done the work to sow seed, cultivate the land and expect to yield a crop for their harvest so ask yourself, what seeds have you planted in anticipation for your Harvest? Bring your seed to the Lord’s store house and see it double in this year. Seed with revelation rather than by mere ritual.  Malachi 3:10

Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,” Says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it.

My encouragement to you today is to never give up on God no matter what you go through. His Will will always be to Prosper you and never to Harm you and to give you a bright future (Jeremiah 29:11). The most important thing about an open Window, is recognizing the timing of when these windows of opportunity open for you. Do not be stuck is self-pity land during the timing when Doors open and windows open over your life. You just might miss them if you remain self-absorbed by your own problems. Focus on what’s ahead of you, that is what your eyes in the front of your head are for. There is no reason for you to focus on what’s behind you since the past is already past. Look towards the future. Live your life expecting the best that is yet to come.  Be Encouraged and know that God will never Forsake you even in your darkest hours and moments in your life. He is there with you every step of the way….so start rejoicing now and start praising Him now because I prophesy and declare that the Windows this year are WIDE OPEN for His people. Look out and hold onto your blessings one by one and keep your faith alive and keep expecting. Your season of Lack is over…it’s time to take dominion! Speak into the atmosphere and declare what it is you want to see. God Bless you Everybody and enjoy this Song. Be encouraged! Love y’all! :D

Working on the Redeemable


Hey Everybody!

I just love Lecrae and because I do, I have another video that is just awesome. He was speaking to a bunch of young people at Liberty University talking about the difference between “the good, the bad and the Redeemable”. As Christians we seem to have a bifocal lens that separates the secular from the religious. We need to understand that Everything on earth belongs to God and therefore, we should have no divisions among us. It’s time to redeem that which is lost and bring all things back to their original purpose, and that is to give glory to God.  :)

Scriptures to Meditate on:

Isaiah 44:24

Judah Will Be Restored ] Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, And He who formed you from the womb: “I am the Lord, who makes all things, Who stretches out the heavens all alone, Who spreads abroad the earth by Myself;
Romans 16:17

Avoid Divisive Persons ] Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.
1 Corinthians 1:10

Sectarianism Is Sin ] Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
Isaiah 48:17

Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go.

Psalm 150:6

Let everything that has breath praise the LordPraise the Lord!

May this video bless your spirit today as it has blessed mine.

What Does a Real Man Look Like?


Hey Everybody!

So I saw this message done by Lecrae about this topic and felt that it was such an important message that I’m going to post it here on my blog for all y’all to watch. He makes so many Key points on how the world defines men and how God defines what a “real” man looks like. This message isn’t just for men, but it’s for women to understand what a “real” man looks like.

Be Blessed today with this message by Lecrae, I know you’ll love it! :D

2013 is Over!


Hi Everybody!

I don’t know about you, but since  this is the last day of 2013, a year that has been filled with various disasters, losses and sad things that have made the world a perilous place to be, we must remember that despite all that we have gone through, God has helped us to weather each storm. A lot of things needed to be purged this year for us to enter into the  Year of 2014 victoriously. It may not seem like you feel victorious just because you’ve survived up to this point, but God is going to do a great work in 2014 and you have to hold on and be encouraged that God never left you and will never leave no matter what you have gone through. He has been with you through each battle so just know that You will be alright. Prophesy and declare and decree today what you want to see in the Year 2014, because this year is going to be very special since it’s a year where many dreams and prayers will be answered. I believe, so have faith in God because you will all make it through as long as you put your Trust in God.

Be encouraged and  know that God’s Plans stand firm forever. Here is a Song by Livre called I will be alright to bless your Spirit today! :) :D

God Bless you all my blogger friends and family! 2013 is over so welcome to the New Year with Praise and Thanksgiving, AMEN!

The Christmas Gospel


Hi Everybody!

I know it’s been a busy month for everybody trying to wrap up things before the Christmas holidays, but let me just state that Jesus is the Reason for the Season and the whole point is no matter how inaccurate historians maybe about Dec 25th being Jesus’ birthday (which most of us know that it is not), the whole point is, it is a time of celebration concerning the Fact that Christ came to Save us all from the penalty of sin which is death, through what He did at Calvary by dying on the Cross and Resurrecting from the dead three days later in fulfillment of the scriptures.

Our Lord Jesus came down from Heaven to be born as a man to teach us all about God’s Kingdom, bear our sins on the cross and defeat the power of death so that we could all be redeemed and be reborn to be reunited with Him again by acknowledging that He is indeed our Savior. Such compassion shown by our God is worthy of all our praise and when you begin to realize, Jesus’ birth was not done in vain, the master plan was to restore all of us back into the fullness of our positions as joint-heirs with Jesus Christ. Through this, we have so much to be thankful for and so much to give to God and to others by our way of worship back to the Father for all that He has done for us.

Jesus came down to give us the gift of hope through salvation so that in return, we would do the same by blessing those around us with the same gift of hope to return back to the heart and the love of the Father.

Extend your love to others so that the light of Christ love shining through you can reach others who live in darkness.

Isaiah 9:6

For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
 

I want to bless all my blogger friends and all those that read this blog a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Enjoy this video by Dan Stevers and the song I love called “The Drummer Boy” performed by Pentatonix  and God Bless You Everybody!
