Thought of the Day: So You’re Christian Huh?


Hi Everybody!

I think I’m on spoken word mode.  This video I’m sharing really makes you look at where you stand in Christ. It’s one thing to know about God, but it’s another to be in relationship with Him. We can’t have an acquaintance-like relationship with Jesus by knowing Him in Name only and yet ignore Him for who He really is to us; He is our Lord and Savior and King of kings. May this Video help us to search deep within to know where we really stand. It’s amazing how much scripture Shawn Presley used in his spoken word, but the truth is needed to be heard in order to confront that which we try to shove under the carpet.

It’s amazing how much we try not to face ourselves when we say we are walking “in Christ” and yet live jaded lives thinking that God is blind to our acts of omission or commission to sin. In some cases, we Christians act engaged to Christ and yet are divorced from the Father’s love for us for the mere fact that we aren’t living for God wholly. It’s sad to have a part-time Christian faith when really God seeks a full-time marriage commitment of Faith.  If we are the Bride of Christ as we so claim, we must no longer portray a mistress status with our King. Let’s dig deep and pray that the Church of Jesus Christ wakes up to see its real face and not live a compromised life swaying like a pendulum with the world’s way of living and start pursuing righteousness for what it is- living in right-standing with Christ. May we confess before God for not really being what we are meant to be in His Eyes which is to be Joint-Heirs with Christ Jesus. We can’t claim to be a powerful church, if we aren’t even plugged-in to the source which is in Christ our solid Rock, our redeemer and foundation of faith. May God help us be the Church that we ought to be and may we as Christians humble ourselves before the King of kings and repent for not being what we should be before Him. Let’s re-align ourselves back to the heart of the Father and seek to live in right-standing with Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior, Amen!

Enjoy the Video and God bless you Everybody!

Spoken Word: Counterfeit Gods


Hi Everybody!

I love Passion for Christ Ministries (P4CM) for what it offers to the NOW Generation. So much talent with speakers that relate to the young generation and speak truth in a language that they can truly understand and relate to. This video that I am posting is a spoken word by Jefferson Bethke that really addressed the issue of how  modern day Counterfeit Gods (aka Idolatry) affect our relationship with God in a truthful poetic way. I know it will minister to you today.

God Bless You Everybody!

Atomic Power of Prayer by Cindy Trimm


Hi Everybody!
As you know I’m a reader and love listening to wisdom. I came across this prayer by Cindy Trimm in my time of prayer. She’s an author of the book Commanding your Morning and Rules of Engagement etc. If you hear this prayer…I think this is what we need to do in the times right now. We need to up our prayers right now and arrest those things that are contrary to the Will of God. Declare and Decree and listen to this prayer. Spread it so that you start to believe and intercede for your nations, your cities, your workplaces, your churches, your neighbourhoods, your family and yourself. It was soo powerful when I heard this and I want to share it here and spread the faith of this powerful prayer. We need to get serious and call out to our God to bless the land as we humble ourselves and pray for forgiveness and ask the Lord to Cover the land with the Blood of Jesus. Let NOT the evil one have his way over your nations and your lives. I am stirred to share this so May it bless you today in JESUS’ Name.

My Memory of Yesterday Gone


I said goodbye to Yesterday,

A memory that was nothing but a dream,

filled  with regrets, mistakes, pains that have past,

I live knowing I am redeemed.

I said goodbye to Yesterday,

The shock of wrongs done and depressed by affliction,

I shed my tears of floods and rain

knowing full well I had more to gain.

I said goodbye to Yesterday,

I cannot erase what has been done

only looking forward and forward I run,

towards this unending beaming sun.

I said goodbye to Yesterday,

Yes, Yes, the day is  already done.

Tomorrow is coming, I stand to sing,

Yesterday is truly gone.

If you wrote a Song for me


If you wrote a song for me,

what would it be?

Would it be one about birds, leaves, or trains?

or one about clothes, bags, or planes?

If I wrote a song for you,

how would it be?

I’ve often thought about a song,

now I need to find a beat.

If you’ve found the song to sing,

would it be about you or me?

If I found a song to write,

would you listen to it please?

My mouth is yearning to sing this song

and my heart has written the piece.

It’s a string of notes with harmony

and vamps of rhythmic melody.

Won’t you help me sing my song?

The song I want to Sing?

Hear it pouring out of my soul

just for all to see.

It was Raining


I looked outside today

and it was raining,

raining, raining, raining.

It seems like a dreary day

and I thought of my blessings,

blessings, blessings, blessings.

I thanked God for today

and started praising,

praising, praising, praising.

My friend was in need yesterday,

and I started praying,

praying, praying, praying.

Someone passed away,

and I started crying,

crying, crying, crying.

Those that hurt me in the past,

they were lying,

lying, lying, lying.

In all this, I say “Hey, Life is full of surprises”,

So keeping believing,

believing, believing, believing.

Never give up on dreaming!

Your dreams are worth fighting for so keep fighting,

fighting, fighting, fighting.

That’s what Faith is…

That’s what Hope is…

That’s what Love is…

That’s what Life is…

So keep living,

Living, Living, Living.

In All This – I Believe (Poem by Yours Truly)


In all this, I believe,

That we can be all that we can be.

No one can tell you that you can’t,

Those that hate you are stuck because the want,

to be that person God wants them to be.

They stop and hit at those that strive,

Because they’re jealous of how you thrive.

Tell them Trust in the Lord with all your Heart, your Mind, your Soul,

For God is the one who blesses all.

Do not fret for those that lack Faith,

They need an example so that they can learn to wait,

on the promises of God that seek His Face,

He rewards all who are humble with Mercy and Grace.

Pursue Him with all your Heart, your Mind, and Soul,

He has the power to be the Forgiver of all.

We all make mistakes along the way,

But for those that like being fake,

Miss out on the things that they can get,

If only they learned to forgive and forget,

The errors of others that hurt their spirit,

Truly Truly we need the Holy Spirit!

Believe and know that God Loves us All,

Believe and Trust He Blesses All,

That seek His face in Spirit and Truth,

No one can deceive you, they have no Proof,

That You are not Loved by the One who Loved you First,

The Giver of Life, the One that took the Curse,

On that lonely tree to save Us who sinned,

Died and rose up to help us be redeemed.

I am in Love with the One that Gave His Life,

the One that taught Us, He is the Way, The Truth and the Life.

Jesus Christ, the Son of God,

The One I praise, the One I Behold.

This is my first attempt at a poem after a long long time for I am deeply out of practice, but I hope this blesses you today.

A Hater – by Maya Angelou


[Before you read this, I just want to say that I love Maya Angelou's works. She is inspirational, deep thinking, and she states everything that comes from the heart. The beauty defined in her literal works are admired by many and inspire all. She puts truth and reality into words that paint pictures of memories we often hide or bury within ourselves.After having read this poem, it reminded me of so many instances in my life where I came across numerous types of adversarial people. May her words encourage you, enlighten you, and lead you to think differently of how we are treated, how we treat others, and how acts of hatred displayed by others either confine us, break us or make us yearn to be stronger--- "I choose the latter, I choose to be strong"---Sherline's two cents]—————————————————————————————————————————
A HATER

A hater is someone who is jealous and envious and spends
all their time trying to make you look small so they can look tall.

They are very negative people to say the least. Nothing is ever good enough!

When you make your mark, you will always attract some haters…

That’s why you have to be careful with whom you share
your blessings and your dreams, because some folk can’t
handle seeing you blessed…

It’s dangerous to be like somebody else… If God
wanted you to be like somebody else, He would have given you what He gave them! Right?

You never know what people have gone through to get what they have…
The problem I have with haters is that they see my glory, but they don’t know my story…
If the grass looks greener on the other side of the
fence, you can rest assured that the water bill is higher there too!

We’ve all got some haters among us!

Some people envy you because you can:
a) Have a relationship with God
b) Light up a room when you walk in
c) Start your own business
d) Tell a man / woman to hit the curb (if he / she isn’t about the right thing)
e) Raise your children without both parents being in the home

Haters can’t stand to see you happy.
Haters will never want to see you succeed.

Most of our haters are people who are supposed to be on our side.

How do you handle your undercover haters?

You can handle these haters by:

1. Knowing who you are & who your true friends are (VERY IMPORTANT!!)
2. Having a purpose to your life:
Purpose does not mean having a job. You can have a job and still be unfulfilled.
A purpose is having a clear sense of what God has called you to be.
Your purpose is not defined by what others think about you.
3. By remembering what you have is by divine prerogative and not human manipulation.

Fulfill your dreams! You only have one life to live…when its your time to leave this earth, you ‘want’ to be able to say, ‘I’ve lived my life and fulfilled ‘my’ dreams,… Now I’m ready to go HOME!

When God gives you favor, you can tell your haters,
‘Don’t look at me…Look at Who is in charge of me…’

Pass this to all of your family & friends who you know
are not hating on you including the person who sent it to
you. If you don’t get it back, maybe you called somebody
out! Don’t worry about it, it’s not your problem,
it’s theirs.. Just pray for them, that their life can be as
fulfilled as yours! Watch out for Haters…BUT most of all don’t
become a HATER!

‘A woman’s heart should be so hidden in Christ that
a man should have to seek Him first to find her.’

Maya Angelou
