Jesus is “The Unconditional”


Hello everybody, 

This is day 6 of my 21 day prayer and fasting and there have been amazing things happening with just the first 3 days. Rather than that, there has been something that’s been on my heart for quite some time and I’ve been wondering how I should even talk about this but I’m just going to go ahead and go there with my thoughts.


3b6bb8319b5c5202ff9913785489d1b4I’ve been meditating on the unconditional love of God. Many people are hurting because what’s out there isn’t genuine, it’s conditional. How can we be open if people only like the so-called “good” parts of us but when you come out with the worst side of yourselves, people begin to shun you. It’s as if you aren’t even allowed to have a bad day. I confess, there are times when I cuss out…yes, there have been times that I was soo upset that I set aside my “christian” self and went on a flesh rampage and cussed out to relieve stress. I’m not condoning what I’ve done, I’m just gonna be real with you about it. I’m a Christian who has cussed when having a bad day… Yes…have self-control (I know that already in my head…but let’s be honest here…sometimes I fall – there I said it).

The truth is, before I was saved, I had issues with cussing. I remember reading an email I had sent to someone after 2 years of being saved and noticed how many cuss words were in that email…I was ashamed to find that I had such a potty mouth. Although I no longer cuss out like I did before I was saved, it doesn’t mean that it hasn’t been an ongoing struggle. I am saved and I am still being saved by the grace of God as I fight and war with my flesh and hold onto what is good, what is worthy of note what is of good report. I’m a Christian, but I’m also human….I’m not handing out an excuse…I’m handing out a REALITY my friends.

How is it that I can go to church one moment and cuss out the next moment…listen…I’m not superhuman, I’m just me…I’m just a broken vessel needing Jesus, my Savior. Although I don’t cuss as much, I do relapse when I get complacent. Yes, there are times when I say things without thinking and I praise God that my heart is sensitive enough to feel grief and conviction to know when I’ve done something that hasn’t pleased God. I think the most scariest place to be in the world is when you no longer feel that conviction of the Holy Spirit. The moment you no longer feel that conviction from the Holy Spirit is when your conscience has become seared to no longer hear nor feel the heart beat of Jesus.

It’s amazing how many people I encounter with such self-righteousness that they throw stones so easily at others who are their brothers and sisters that they don’t take the time to do some self-inventory and see the planks that exist in their own eyes. Sometimes I think God looks at us and shakes His head….

Matthew 7:1-3 (NKJV)

Do Not Judge

7 “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye?

I’m not saying that it’s ok to cuss or anything, that’s my own weakness that I’m still dealing with, but what I’m getting at is when can Christians be real and judge not so easily about the weaknesses of other and operate at a level of Godly CompassionI don’t care if you’re shocked with my weaknesses…because I’d rather be in a place where I am able to confess my weaknesses before God rather than be a closet Christian pretending to act like “I’m ok”. There are days when I’m not ok and I cry, and I seek God’s face and wonder…why am I like this…how did I get here…why is it so hard to be Christian?

The problem isn’t with the message of Christ, it’s with the actions of other Christians. 

1 Samuel 24:12

Let the Lord judge between you and me, and let the Lord avenge me on you. But my hand shall not be against you.

We lack that element of the unconditional love of God in our heart.
Remember that saying that goes: “People don’t care how much you know, they want to know how much you care”.

87aa9e8e14cff8917027311443874211We need to practice unconditional love. I’ve been around different walks of life both young and old and have traveled and lived in various countries by the grace of God that I can truly see the beauty of God through all these different types of people. We were all born unique and it is in that uniqueness that we have to learn to embrace our differences since we are all part of the same body but all performing a different function.
Lately, I feel that God wants us as people to remember that when He gave us His Son Jesus…it was because of that unconditional love that He has for you. He died for you…He died for the murderer, slanderer, adulterer, the gay the lesbian, the confused, the angry, the lonely, the seemingly unlovable, the psychotic, etc, the point is Jesus died for everyone without discriminating on whatever weakness you had.

The truth is, God’s love is so amazing that it’s truly hard to comprehend and yet so easy to understand because it’s simple, God is Love personified. His name is Jesus and yes, He is The Unconditional Love that we all need.

6cc2d944f6cfb62b30e00d1fae1f8ca5Men may judge you easily because we are imperfect beings, but through Christ we become perfected. You are not too far gone that God’s love can’t reach you.  Jesus’ hand is always extended to lift you up whenever you are down. God loves you. Christians and other people in this world are simply human, and imperfect humans usually display an imperfect love towards others. It’s because unconditional love was authored by God Himself. Jesus became a live demonstration of God’s love so that we could understand that it is possible to love others unconditionally. The struggle is real, but my emphasis in this post is understand that the Unconditional is part of your identity as a Christian. If you are partial in your love, then you need to seek God’s face to help you build up this level of Godly love to demonstrate to others. Tt doesn’t mean that there won’t be people that challenge your ability to love them, however, you must learn to ask God to increase your ability to love the unlovable. God is real and He loves you.

I know I could preach all day long on this, but this was was in my heart after I read a post of a person who abandoned the faith just because of what he saw other Christians do. It’s sad… I don’t blame people who walk away from the faith…the truth is, they probably haven’t walked away from Christ in their hearts because they know how Christ loves them. However, it most likely may be that they have simply walked away from other Christians because of how they practiced their conditional love.

Jesus understands you and wants you to know, that He will always love you. People may fail you, but God will never leave you or forsake you because He is the Unconditional.

Hebrews 13:5

Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

This song is something that I’ve been playing for the past few days. It’s by Hillsongs UNITED called Even When it Hurts (Praise Song).  I will praise God even when it hurts because I love Him. Do you? God Bless you everybody! :D


I’m Expecting A Move of God

glory-to-god (1)

Hi Everybody!

I just wanted to give you an update on the situation with one of our band members called Richie. He came back!!!!!!!!!! YAY! His family finally approved him playing in our band! HALLELUJAH! Thank you people for the prayers :D . Prayer changes things, I believe this. Especially when you pray expecting that God will answer.

Today, I feel led to say something that may sound ridiculous, but God has been showing me that it’s time as Christians to pray differently. I must admit that I’ve been a bit lazy to command my mornings for the past few months, but I started to get back into it last week and have found that each time I have, My days would run smoothly, or I would receive new revelation of God’s Word during the 3:00 am – 6:00 am watch.

I believe God wants me to share what I’ve learned during my conversations with Him here on this blog. So here goes…

It is time to pray from our positions and not by our conditions.  What do I mean by this? God wants us to pray differently. We keep asking for stuff in our prayers, but we don’t act like we have enough faith to receive what we have requested.  We know that faith can move mountains based on the Word itself, but when it comes down to the actual practice of faith, Christians are lacking…in fact, God has shown me areas that I still lack faith. It’s a humbling thing to know that we have so much more to work on if we want to be stronger, wiser, vigilant and effective in Christ. 

God showed me during these times that we Christians pray in one of two forms:

1. We either pray with a “lack of knowledge”, or;

2. We pray with “knowledge”. 

If we pray with a “lack of Knowledge” then what we retain from that prayer is LACK. Likewise, in the same way, if we pray with “Knowledge”, what we retain from that prayer is “Knowledge”.  

Think about it. It says in the Word of God that:

Hosea 4:6 

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.
Rejecting Knowledge causes us to be disqualified from achieving our positions as “Joint-heirs” with Jesus Christ. When God showed this to me, it sobered me up really quickly that I had to analyze in what way have I been praying? I had to repent of my faithless prayers and have decided to work on praying more effectively for the purpose of representing God properly. I know that many times I have prayed to God knowing what He can do and knowing who I was in Christ that I have achieved results, but at the same time, I recognize times when I prayed and did not achieve results because I was not praying by POSITION, I was praying subdued by my CONDITION. I allowed my circumstances to take precedence over my ability to speak by faith and not go by what I saw, thought or feel. I had many times that I encountered doubt entering into my head that I no longer spoke the language of FAITH, I spoke a foreign language to God called DOUBT.
Yes, Faith is a heavenly language  that God responds to and in the same way Doubt is a demonic language that refuses to acknowledge God as sovereign which is what the Devil responds to. Scary thought huh? 
Expectations1200X850It is interesting isn’t it, how we falter in our faith by putting more emphasis on our conditions rather than speaking about our positions in Christ. Christ has shown us that we are the HEAD and not the TAIL, Above only and never Beneath (Deuteronomy 28:13), and yet we forget the Word that God has spoken to us simply because we are either, Apathetic, Ignorant (Don’t read or know the Word and what it says about us) or just don’t understand who we are in Christ. 
So today, I believe God wants us to incline our ears to Wisdom and actually pursue to understand that we must pray differently. We must pray by our POSITION and not by our Condition. The Centurion understood this principle. He respected Jesus’ authority that did not require Jesus to visit his sick servant. All he needed was for Him to speak and it was so (Matthew 8:8). The woman with the issue of blood understood this…all she needed was to touch the hem of Jesus’ garment and that faith brought her healing (Matthew 9:20)…
What I’m trying to say is that, God is saying we have the power to pull miracles from Him because His riches and glory is sufficient to meet all our needs.
And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
But if we cannot simply understand this simple fact, we will always pray prayers that will retain LACK because we don’t have knowledge of Who God is to us and what and who we are to GOD. So as God has challenged me, I also challenge you to pray WITH KNOWLEDGE. Do you know that by His stripes you are HEALED today? (Isaiah 53:51 Peter 2:24).
impressing God last
Do you know that when you call on the Name of Jesus, He hears?
And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be saved.’
For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
If you don’t know….then it’s time for you to buck up and get knowledge…Look back into the WORD and find the answer…seek and you shall find what you are looking for.
But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.
I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me.
And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
[ 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.
If you lack something today, then it just means that you need to search for Knowledge and wisdom. The Fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times, And the strength of salvation; The fear of the Lord is His treasure.
I declare and decree from my POSITION and not by my CONDITION, that this Month of September is going to be a “month of Birthings”. New things are going to happen this month that have never happened before. You will start new projects and the end results will bear great fruit. You will change your associations this month. You will be heading into a new direction. Prayers will be answered this month. God is doing a new thing and I am expecting a move of GOD. What are you expecting for this month? 
Listen to this song by William McDowell called Expecting. Let this song bless your spirit today. God Bless you everybody! :)

How the Qu’ran converted a Muslim to Christ

Hi Everybody!

I know I’ve posted this already on my facebook, but I feel lead to post this on my blog to get a wider audience. Check out this snippet of Mario Joseph’s transformation from being a Muslim to coming to know about Christ from the things he found out in Islams holy book the Qu’ran. The Qu’ran is what changed his mind and view about Christianity as he was challenged to answer questions regarding who is Jesus Christ…the interview is amazing. God can cause us to find the truth and use the most foolish ways to get to it, to confound the wise. Isn’t God Great?

It really speaks to this verse of scripture in 1 Corinthians 1:27  which says: 

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;
May this video bless your heart today. 

So What Do We Do Now With Mark Driscoll?

So What Do We Do Now With Mark Driscoll?.

I read this article and thought to myself how sad it is that popular preachers are straying from the safety net of wise counselors by abusing their powers that not only affect the flock, but their spiritual walk with God on a personal basis.

I think the major take away from this article are the numbered items that I think are key for leaders to understand about their role. There is nothing wrong with making mistakes…but it is the attitude in which those refuse to repent or be corrected by them that worries me. I have seen this happen in a church before and all the signs are there, but people are too afraid to speak up, pay attention, or do something about it (i.e. confront their leaders). We are our brothers keeper…and it is a duty to make sure that when even a leader strays. we guide them back on the right path on the right road with love and compassion and direction. If we shy away from correcting them…are we not saying we don’t care for their lives???

This should be food for thought today.

What would Jesus want us to do? We cannot forsake our brothers and sisters…but if they refuse to change…they will have to answer to God in the long run for their own actions. Apostasy continues when people don’t stand up for what is right, allowing abuse to continue to happen.

As a watchwoman, I find this to be critical to watch out for this year…leaders will reap what they sow during the season of the harvest if they don’t repent. It is not God’s will to watch Christian leaders fall…He wants them to change their ways and humble themselves and pray and turn away from their wicked ways, and God will restore them and heal them and deliver them, if and when they do choose the path of the humble and decide to repent openly before God and their flock.

This is a good time to remind people of the warning signs of an unhealthy church:

1. Little or no accountability. When celebrity preachers seem eager to tell everyone else what to do but aren’t willing to hear correction from others, prepare for a train wreck. There is safety in the multitude of counselors (see Prov. 11:14). There is much less safety—even danger—when a leader does not seek counsel from a diverse group of his peers.

2. Spiritual elitism. If there is a spirit of control in a church, people are usually told their group is superior. If people choose to leave, they are shunned or branded as renegades. Sometimes, in extreme cases, people are even cursed if they leave. This cultic behavior inflicts unimaginable emotional suffering and also divides families.

3. An oppressive atmosphere. Authoritarian leaders control people through manipulation. This may come in the form of threats, legalistic demands, unreasonable requirements or false doctrines. In such a church no one is allowed to ask questions. Spiritual heaviness lies like a thick cloud over the congregation, and few believers manifest genuine joy.

4. Angry domination. Tyrants are surprisingly similar. Because they want to control their surroundings, they often blow up when people do not conform to their demands. Yet the apostle Paul taught that church leaders should not be “violent” or “quarrelsome” but “self-controlled” and “gentle” (see 1 Tim. 3:2-3). He also instructed Timothy that the Lord’s servant “must not quarrel; instead, he must be kind to everyone” (2 Timothy 2:24).

 5. A low view of women. While churches today differ in their views on women in leadership, it should be noted that authoritarian churches almost always discourage women from pursuing any genuine role in ministry. Women are viewed as useful only in their functions as submissive wives and mothers, and they are not encouraged to step beyond these confines to pursue ministry opportunities.

Let’s pray that the healing power of Jesus covers this situation in Seattle—and that the people who left Mars Hill Church, the people who remain there, and Mark Driscoll himself can recover from the trauma of spiritual abuse.

Ignite My Fire for New Beginnings this Month


Hi Everybody!

I know that it’s been a while since I’ve written on my Blog. I mean it’s been a while since I’ve written anything substantive, but I just want to let you know that I’m still alive and well :).

I want to declare and decree to you that this month of August is a month of New Beginnings.

August is the 8th month of the year and number 8 in biblical numerology is always associated with NEW BEGINNINGS! HALLELUJAH! :D

REJOICE!!!!! because this is also a month that I believe you will receive answered prayers. The important key factor about receiving something is your EXPECTATION level. What are you Expecting from God? Some people pray and give up along the way, but I want to encourage you in this season NOT TO GIVE UP. Keep pressing through for your breakthrough.

Another thing I want to point out is that blessings don’t just fall from the sky and onto your lap… My friends, you have to ACT, you have to MOVE by faith (be practical) to obtain the promises of God. Passivity does not bring bread and butter to the table. You have to GO OUT and make it happen. I’m not here to give you a fluffy feel-good about yourself kind of message. You will have to learn what it means to endure and press through and face trials and tribulations by remaining steadfast and vigilant. As the old sayings go, No Pain, No Gain, No Guts, No Glory…

Laziness is a vice to your advancement in the Kingdom of God. So Go out there and get with the program.

If you are not prepared to face battles in your mind right now….then you are destined to fail. OUCH Sherline, Where’s the encouragement woman!!!!!! (I’m sorry, did I just smack you with the truth?) tsk tsk tsk.

WAKE UP and FACE REALITY! You must aim to get stronger if you are weak right now. Train yourself, seek knowledge, pursue wisdom, for wisdom will carry you to greater heights.

Build emotional strength and wisdom to confront each battle with the shield of faith and the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. Gird yourself up with the full armor of God and choose to not lean on your own understanding, but in all your ways acknowledge God and He will direct your path… (Proverbs 3:6) God will make your path straight when you are led by His Spirit, so seek God first in all that you do. You aren’t that bright all by yourself.

I’ve been learning on my journey that people who are short sighted only see where you are right now, but they don’t know where God is taking you when you are following Him. Do not be distracted by the naysayers and the ones who don’t have the same revelation of God that you have. Criticism is really a sign of insecurity to the one who gives criticism aimed to cut down and tear down at others so that they can feel better about themselves. You have no time to trifle with such people. Shake the criticism and the discouragement off and keep your head high and focus on the goal.

You must remain focused so that you obtain your promises from the Lord. Critics are those walking around for 40 years in a desert not seeing a way out… You will notice that nothing around them changes so you must be like Caleb and say “enough is enough! I’m walking towards the promised land!”  This is how you should go about your everyday business.

Choose your battles wisely because sometimes you’ll get caught up in fruitless arguments that also pose as a distraction. Let me tell you, You have no time for that in this season. Remain focused, be vigilant, don’t be passive and remain ACTIVE. Your pursuit of happiness is determined on how you conquer minor and major giants that you face in your daily life. Seek wisdom from the Lord if you lack it. The Lord will not withhold any Good thing from you.

For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly.

The Lord has been impressing upon my heart to tell the people I want them to focus on the Deuteronomy 28 Blessings. So what I’m going to do is paste this scripture here on this blog and you are going to pronounce these blessings over your household and your family in this month of August. Great things are coming to your address!

Deuteronomy 28: 1-14(NKJV)

Blessings on Obedience

28 “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God:

“Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country.

“Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.

“Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.

“Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.

“The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.

“The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

“The Lord will establish you as a holy people to Himself, just as He has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk in His ways. 10 Then all peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they shall be afraid of you. 11 And the Lord will grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground, in the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers to give you. 12 The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. 13 And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them. 14 So you shall not turn aside from any of the words which I command you this day, to the right or the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

Here is a song that is in my Spirit lately by William Murphy called Ignite My Fire. May this Song Bless your Spirit Today. God Bless you everybody! :D


Happy Sunday Everybody!

I just had to post this song by Donnie McClurkin feat. Tye Tribbett called We are Victorious! 

God has made us to be winners! This Year, is a year of breakthrough, a year of breaking barriers, breaking chains, breaking limitations and anything that hindered your blessings and dreams! God is in the mood of building a Victorious Church this year that won’t back down, that won’t focus on things by what they see, but will walk by faith, act by faith and move by Faith since God is the Author and Finisher of our Faith.

Romans 10:17

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
looking unto Jesus, the authorand finisher of
our faith,
who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
For we walk by faith, not by sight. 
Listen to this Song, let it fill your Spirit today and be Blessed!  God bless you everybody! :D



He Did it for You

Hi Everybody!

I know easter has already passed, but I felt that as I saw this video today, we must remember that Christ redeemed us at a price. He did all that He was predestined to do to bring us back to the Father. He laid down His life for you…No simple man can do what Christ did for all of humanity. All Jesus asks of us today is to now walk BLAMELESSLY.

Jesus did not lay down His life for all of us and then  resurrect Himself in vain. His plan was to reunite us back to the Father and to reconcile and  restore our authority as joint-heirs of the King of kings. Through Jesus’ blood we have access granted back into the Kingdom of Heaven. Let us rejoice and remember that He did it all for you.

Today, think about what the cross means to you. Jesus was blameless and is blameless, now we too must walk blamelessly before the Father and seek to do right. May this video bless your spirit today. God bless you everybody!

Deuteronomy 18:13 

You shall be blameless before the Lord your God.

2 Samuel 22:26

“With the merciful You will show Yourself merciful; With a blameless man You will show Yourself blameless;
Job 1:8

Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil?”
Psalm 37:37

Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright; For the future of that man is peace.
Proverbs 2:21

For the upright will dwell in the land, And the blameless will remain in it;
Proverbs 28:18

Whoever walks blamelessly will be saved, But he who is perverse in his ways will suddenly fall.
Philippians 2:15

that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,
2 Peter 3:14

Be Steadfast ] Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless;
