I just wanted to post this amazing song sung by Travis Greene and Todd Dulaney called Easter. I loved the beat of this song because it has a bit of an African Beat and Vibe to it. This Easter, we do remember that our Saviour did suffer, died on the Cross as a propitiation for our Sins, and three days later Resurrected from the dead in fulfillment of Scriptures. This same Jesus is alive and that is why this is cause for celebration in that we can all be redeemed by accepting Him as our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Jesus is the Son of God, He is the Christ, He is King. None of us can come to the Father (God) except through the Son, Jesus Christ. That is why it is important that every non-believer accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour over their lives. Jesus is the Door to Salvation. So as you listen to this Song, just remember that Salvation comes when you believe that Jesus is in fact The Way, The Truth and the Life in your life. I pray that this song blesses you today. God Bless You Everybody! 🙂
14 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many [a]mansions; if it were not so,[b]I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
5 Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”
6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
Hebrews 12:2 (New International Version)fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
7 Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All who ever came [a]before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. 9I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved,and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
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! 🙂
Merry Christmas Everybody! I just wanted to post this amazing song that I’ve sung at my church by Chris Tomlin feat. Lauren Daigle called Noel. May this Christmas be filled with Joy and Happiness for you and your family! God Bless You Everybody! 🙂
Not the actual picture of my car…just an example of what was done to mine.
So, short story. I was supposed to go shopping yesterday for Boxing day sales with my twin, but when we got to the car in our underground parking lot, we found that our driver’s side window was smashed in because someone had broken into the car. Not only had the person broken into the car, they ransacked it and stole the iPod that was in it. They also smashed and broke into several other cars in the same underground parking lot and stole some items. Needless to say, my sister and I were very ticked off. We went to the superintendent to report what had happened only to find that other residents were there making the same complaint. The superintendent had the guy on camera but we all couldn’t recognize this fool so we had to make a police report and unfortunately, they weren’t much help. So later on this week my sister and I will have to get our car fixed since it’s the Christmas holiday week, many services aren’t open. UGH! How frustrating!
On the other hand, I am thankful that I had wanted to go shopping early because I wouldn’t have known that this had happened had I not had the desire to go shopping. I would have probably found out 2 days later. I’m also thankful that no one got hurt during this whole process physically because the person had a weapon to break into the cars which I found to be a screwdriver that he left in our car (how careless can one be to leave evidence????). No one wants to be in an altercation with a wacko with a weapon. Anyways, it was frustrating to say the least, but we didn’t have anything valuable in the car except that iPod that he stole…. I got the impression that the person was high on drugs when I saw the surveillance video…WORD… I pray that he gets help though…
That’s why I entitled this post “Broken People, BrokenThings”. I feel like if you’re broken on the inside, your behaviour towards others will reflect your brokenness in your actions. In this case, this broken individual broke into other people’s cars to steal their things without apology. I feel like this person is a broken soul that may have a seared conscience and can only think about what they want selfishly and not consider how their actions affect others in the process of doing selfish things. He really ticked me off…but I still hope that the thief gets help…he doesn’t look like someone who’s in his right mind based on what I observed from the surveillance video. All we can do at the end of the day is pray for such people and hope that the Lord will heal the spirit of their minds.
22 that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, 23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
Well, today I want to post a prayer for my Country Zimbabwe as it goes through its transition after our previous leader, President Robert Mugabe has stepped down in a forced resignation.
You can read all about that through reading CNN’s post by clicking here. I’m not going to talk about all the chaos that the country went through before and after all of this happened because that’s not what’s important right now. What’s important right now is the livelihood of the people and the hope that the new leader President Emmerson Mnangagwa will bring peace, stability and financial prosperity for the people of Zimbabwe.

All I can say is that a leader can start off well, but if one gets drunk with power, your end may become tragic. Think of King David in the Bible….He started off well as a shepherd boy, but when he became king and lusted after another man’s wife (Uriah’s wife), he did the unthinkable and murdered Uriah by sending him off to battle to die there as a diabolical scheme to get Uriah’s wife (Bathsheba) to marry him due to his covetousness/jealousy and lust (You can read all about that in 2 Samuel 11).
God did not overlook David’s crime… Just because you start off well being an honest leader/person in the beginning of your walk with the Lord, doesn’t mean that you can’t ever stray after a certain time has past. If you lust for power or for other peoples things and move into a realm where you don’t care if you hurt other people just to get whatever it is that you want…you will end up doing many unbelievable things that will displease God and judgment will ultimately pass against your head. As Christians, we need to be cautious and humble enough to understand that no matter how humble your beginnings were in your walk with God, when God elevates you into a position of power:
do not let that power corrupt your morals,
do not let that power to steer you away from doing the “right thing”,
do not let that power drown nor sear your conscience,
do not let that power be used to abuse other people,
do not let that power be the cause of your downfall.
With great power comes great responsibility, so always tune your heart to remain humble, love justice and act with mercy, otherwise, you will succumb to your own devises if you leave your morals unchecked. The Lord stresses that we must guard our hearts above all else as stated in the following verses of scripture:
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
The entire chapter of Proverbs 24 epitomizes what I think is happening in Zimbabwe at this time. The Lord our God does not overlook corruption, oppression and destruction of a people or a country. Those that were part of oppressing the people of Zimbabwe will be dealt with by the Lord’s Hand if they fail to repent for their evil schemes and deeds. If God would not overlook the tyrannical abuse of power by Pharaoh in the days of Moses, then I believe that this same God will not overlook the tyrannical abuse of power from any leader that abuses their citizens. I’m not only talking about just Zimbabwe, but this also goes for any other leader of any nation, or to any person in a place of leadership whether it be in the political realm, religious realm or in the business realm. May this serve as a warning to all people that whatever you do to oppress people’s lives, the Lord will bring swift judgment against a person’s head according to His timing over any level of gross injustice(s) perpetrated against the innocent. It is better to turn away from your wicked ways and seek God to renew a right spirit in you through repentance in order to lead people with Love, Justice and Mercy rather than drown in your pride and obstinacy. So for today, pray for the people of Zimbabwe and pray for your own nation’s leaders that they may rule with love, justice, peace, righteousness and compassion for the people that they are called to lead, Amen! God Bless You Everybody! 😀
I just want to wish all the Fathers and Father’s-to-be a Happy Father’s Day! You may not always get it right as a parent but just remember that We all have a Great Father who is in Heaven. Let us give God the highest praise for He is ultimately the Father of father’s!
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.”

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 62,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
