Building on Integrity in a World with Moral Decay


Hello Everybody!😀

I pray that your Weekend is going pretty well.

We had a brother in the church that lost a newborn baby and just came back from Africa from burying the baby.😦 We as a church pulled together to minister to his spirit by loving on this individual because it’s so important to have support when you’re going through that time of grief. I know I needed it when I was going through the grief of losing my grandmother who was someone very important to me. I pray that he and his wife will pull through this together and that God will restore joy back to them and bless them with many more children in the future. I found out later on after service by my Pastor, that the brother was so moved by the love displayed by the members of the church that he made a decision today that he wants to serve. To me, that is worth a praise and a shout to God. It’s amazing what the love of God can do for someone. If it causes a person to move into destiny, then I’m all about that. No manipulation involved, just pure and genuine unconditional love is enough to move a person and shift their destiny, Amen!😀

That’s what it means to be the Church people of God. We build each other up by supporting each other, growing with each other, edifying each other and training each other to keep moving forward to the upward call of Jesus Christ, Amen.

I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

So today I want to continue on this whole thing about INTEGRITY. For those of you following along, please refer back to my previous posts, the Transition to Elevation post and the It’s PA time with God, How did you measure up? post.

integrityIt is so important to assess the condition of your heart when seeking elevation, promotion and going up somewhere that you’ve never been to before. God always looks at our hearts to determine if we are ready for the next level. If you’re not prepared, God won’t bring you to something or someone that you aren’t prepared for. People want to experience high levels and high heights, but are spiritually, intellectually and/or emotionally immature to handle the responsibility of the next level. I can tell you right now that if you harbor any jealousy, bitterness, pride and arrogance towards your fellow brother or sister, be it family, friends, co-workers or peers who are getting blessed, then you’re heading down a dangerous path of destruction.

What is INTEGRITY?  

The dictionary defines it as:

  1. adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.
  2. the state of being whole, entire, or undiminished.
  3. a sound, unimpaired, or perfect condition.

The Bible also has a few things to say about integrity: 

Let me be weighed on honest scales, That God may know my integrity.

The Lord shall judge the peoples; Judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness, And according to my integrity within me.

Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, For I wait for You.

So he shepherded them according to the integrity of his heart, And guided them by the skillfulness of his hands.

bmmlwvsimaabs4qIt is so important to walk in integrity with your heart because if you don’t, you will walk in a place filled with many dangers. Those that lack integrity live a perverse life and are drawn to wickedness, are boastful and have a lying tongue. They will delight in the ways of evil and not good, and such people will corrupt your heart and will lie with their lips. They walk in the counsel of the ungodly and find themselves bound up by their own devices. Notice how I said “They will be bound up by their own devices” and not necessarily the devices of the enemy because all the devil has to do is dangle something in front of such a person and they’ll run quickly to evil and will get caught up in a snare. My message to you is to please not become such a person. Such a person will have a seared conscience (1 Timothy 4:2) and will not maintain any standard that has to do with Godly moral principles.

He who walks with integrity walks securely, But he who perverts his ways will become known.

The integrity of the upright will guide them, But the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them.

Better is the poor who walks in his integrity Than one who is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.

It is better to hold onto Integrity, because it is founded on a person choosing to maintain a Godly moral standard way of living. Those that have integrity will be blessed in everything that they do and will receive promotion, elevation and much much more.

The righteous man walks in his integrity; His children are blessed after him.

Integrity is also founded on TRUST. Can God trust you with His business? If God can’t trust you with little, why is it that we expect to receive so much from God as if we are entitled to every blessing from the Lord? What have you given God lately? Have you given Him your time, your attention, your love? We really need to get away from simply demanding stuff from God and really start focusing on building a closer relationship with Him by pursuing the HEART of the FATHER. Seek to understand Jesus’ Heart by being a God Chaser.

Luke 16:10

10 “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.

INTEGRITY is what you pass on to the next generation if you are a parent/guardian/mentor/teacher/pastor/leader. If you look at Proverbs 20:7, it tells you that even the children of a righteous man who walks in integrity are blessed after him. If we need to pass on something to the next generation, let it be INTEGRITY people. Right now we live in a Godless society that wants us to compromise our beliefs and what we stand for, but God is seeking a people to stand for what is right, to stand up for what is good and to stand up for our Lord Jesus Christ. We can’t be closet Christians. Our life should scream “I’m a believer of Christ Jesus”, but do you want to know the reason why some people aren’t obvious in their Christianity? It is because some people are “Christians” in name only, but not in conduct. We cannot afford to be this way. 

heartI remember sharing this story with my church the other day because right now we’re dealing with a series that my Pastor has been talking about called “God, Money and You”. You can check out those sermons on our church website So a while back my parents were friends with this guy that they went to school with in the UK. My parents moved to Canada and this friend followed, but he ended up living in Vancouver since we lived in Ontario.He had just gotten married a few years after that and apparently the woman that he married was quite wealthy so when he visited us and my parents in Ontario a few months after getting married, he came and showed off his golf clubs and made fun of my parents and their house and was quite disrespectful to them and to me with his show of arrogance and pride asserting that “he’d made it”.

Frankly speaking, I didn’t care and was very annoyed to serve this guy with hospitality because if it were me, I’d show you the door and won’t think twice on it if you think you can just disrespect me and my family in my own house, however, my parents were more gracious than I was at the time and entertained this so-called “friend” until he left to go back to Vancouver. I honestly was like good riddance…I mean really people, really!😦  Oh Minister Sherline, you shouldn’t say that…yes, I’m saying that because I’m being real here.

My parents could not believe this supposed “bible-believing” friend that they went to school with together could change so much. My question was, did you really know the man? The man was obviously in love with money and you know what the Bible says about the love of money? It is the root of all evil. Don’t get me wrong, money in and of itself is not bad, but its the way in which one pursues it that matters. Do you pursue it with just means, or are you unjust in your methods of pursuing wealth? All these things matter people.

1 Timothy 6:10

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.


A few months pass by and it became apparent that this friend no longer wanted to have anything to do with my parents because he was a “high-roller” now and why would he need to hang out with those below his so-called status? Let me just say that our standards are never God’s standards if we act with a haughty spirit filled with pride and arrogance. Anyways, a few months down the road we read about that brother in the newspaper. He had stolen over $450K from the Children’s hospital and wrote out over 75 fraudulent cheques. As a consequence, the man was put under house arrest for 2 years and we also heard that the government of Canada had placed a ban from him from ever traveling to the USA for life, he was stripped of his accountancy designation that he worked so hard alongside my stepdad to obtain in the UK, I mean, the man was simply destroyed. In the papers they quote this about him:

“”It’s the scarlet letter that you wear,” [An Official] said. “’He’s the guy that stole the money from the Children’s Hospital.’ That’s how he’ll be remembered.”

We as a family were shocked about this brother’s demise. I mean, the whole thing is sad, but this is what happens when people lack INTEGRITY to maintain Godly standards in their character and conduct. This is what happens when you don’t preserve your integrity. You compromise and do things your way because you don’t want to listen to God anymore, you want to take things into your own hands and feel like you don’t need to answer to anybody and refuse to submit to Godly and wise counsel. You will be operating in a place of mediocrity and will end up with a life that is mediocre. When you lead yourself astray, the devil uses you as his playground to get you to a place where you are bound up, isolated and can’t move. That is called BONDAGE folks.

The truth is, there is redemption and there is grace, however, the road is much harder to walk on because you have to guide yourself back to the right path by first seeking the Father’s heart through REPENTANCE. Don’t ever take God’s grace in your life for granted, because one of these days, that grace period will run out and it’ll be too late. If your heart is far from the Father, you are walking on a perilous road. Stop trying to exalt yourself when humility is the path that you should walk in in order to preserve your life and your future. I’ve lived a life serving dignitaries at a government level and can tell you, I’ve seen the worst in government and I’ve seen amazing people at the same time. How you climb up in promotion MATTERS, because if you ever fall, you’ll have to wonder if there will be anybody below to catch you when you fall. How you treat people MATTERS, because if you treat people with disdain, you will have no true support to help you when you’re down. Treat people in the way you would like to be treated, Amen! 

Titus 2:6-8

Likewise, exhort the young men to be sober-minded, in all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility,[a] sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you.

Here is a song from Elevation Worship called Grace Like a Wave. I pray that it ministers to someone’s spirit today as we meditate of the Grace of God and how we shouldn’t take that grace for granted in our lives. Let’s learn to walk in right-standing, Amen! God bless you everybody!😀

Wake Up the Wonder


Hello People! 

Did ya miss me? lol just kiddin’😀

I have a part 2 to my previous post regarding God’s PA review, but I won’t share it on here yet until I’ve ministered this message to my church this Friday. I feel like I can’t release the message just yet. You can wait right?🙂

I thank the Holy Spirit for giving me a timely message. When I do share it this Friday, I pray that it may minister to somebody’s spirit. I’m in a place where God keeps revealing so many new messages that I need to record everything so that I don’t forget. I welcome questions and will try to answer them to the best of my ability. When God is speaking to you, have a notebook, or tablet or laptop to record these things. Save every detail that you remember so that you can continue to fine tune your ears to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to you the Church.

I entitled this post after Elevation Worship’s cd title Wake Up the Wonder (can you tell I’m still on this Elevation Worship tip…I just love them! lol🙂 ) because that is the main message. Wake up the wonder inside of you. This is the mystery that needs to be revealed to the World, that you have CHRIST in you, the hope of glory. You are the miracle that you seek, you are the answer to your own problem, and you are the answer that the world seeks. You are a revival starter. It all begins with you, so stop looking around when you should be looking in the mirror and seeing that the answer already arrived, the answer is YOU, Amen!😀

To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

So in the mean time I want to post a song by Elevation Worship called The King Among Us.  


God is in this Place


Hello People!

I’m just posting a song today sung by Bonnie Deuschle & Celebration Choir called God is in this Place.  I love this song since the choir sings in my Zimbabwean Language “Shona” when they say Mwari vari pano”  which translates to “God is Here”. There’s just something about African praise. I love the drums and so songs with a drum beat make me feel like I can hear the heart-beat of God.

How many of  us just need to know that God is in this place? When we worship, He inhabits in our praise. Can you imagine that you invite the presence of the Holy Spirit simply by just worshiping Him with your mouth or instrument of praise?

King James 2000 Bible
But you are holy, O you that inhabit the praises of Israel.

God is Here when we lift our hands, when we give Him praise. Let us go back to the heart of worship. Worship brings about intimacy and connection with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. That’s why I love the song I posted in my previous post called Heart like Heaven by Hillsongs United. The beat in that song just makes me feel like I can hear God’s heart thumping. There is no measure that knows God’s worth in our lives. God is AWESOME!😀

I don’t know about you, but I cannot do without the presence of God in my life. I draw away from people that suffocate or grieve the Holy Spirit when they’re around me. My spirit is so sensitive that sometimes I cringe at the sound of discord. I’m not talking about someone singing the wrong note (because that can happen), I’m talking about the heart/spirit of the person singing is out of order. If you sing from a place of anger…I cringe. If you sing with arrogance, I cringe. But when someone sings at that place where there’s pure adoration and love in that person’s heart, I rejoice. You can’t pretend worship. It’s either you have a heart that seeks to worship God in Spirit and in Truth, or you’re just a clanging cymbal wanting others to hear you out because you think you’re all that and much more. I just love basking in worship mode. Like I said, I usually get my answers when I’m in that place. God reveals Himself to me in and through Worship. If you want to get closer to God, then seek Him with all your heart. When you seek Him, you will find Him.

So I came out to meet you, Diligently to seek your face, And I have found you.

I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me.

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

John 4:22-24 (NKJV)

22 You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. 23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

I pray that this song blesses your spirit today. God bless you everybody!😀



In the Mood for Worship


Hi People!

I’ve just come back from vacation and feel rejuvenated.😀 I’m in the mood for worship so for those in Canada Happy Family Day y’all! I didn’t expect to come back to -25 degrees…but I’ll praise God anyway. I praise God I’m African and can still enjoy traveling between two hemispheres to have two summers per year. Don’t hate lol😀

Here are some songs to bless your spirit today that have been in my spirit all of last night.

The first one comes from Hillsongs United called Heart Like Heaven. This song has been ministering to my spirit and it’s just awesome in surround sound. Let this song minister to your spirit today.


The Next song is from for King & Country called Shoulders. Sometimes you need to know that God carries you through many challenges. You just need to lean on Him as the answer to your need. This song has been blessing my spirit. I pray that this one also blesses yours.

The Last Song I will post here today is from Newsboys singing We Believe. I just love how Michael Tait sings this song. I truly believe that this song will bless somebody today.

I know that I usually just post one song per post, but right now I don’t want to talk I just want to saturate my spirit with Praise and Worship Songs. Through my travels God has just been showing me things and ministering to my spirit as of late. I feel so light in my spirit that I just want to Praise God more. I actually have more songs I could put on here but I think I’ll keep it to three for now.

It’s so important to give time to worship God. Personally, I find my gift in the prophetic is stimulated in the presence of worship. I hear God more clearly during that time and so I fill my spirit with songs that give honor and praise to God. This is how I meditate. I shut out the noise of my life and sit in His Presence. Fill your spirit with worship and you’ll see things clearly in that presence. Don’t allow distractions. I remember being in a church where I just wanted to sit in the presence of worship and then a sister so and so or brother so and so would just distract me because they want my attention…I would feel really upset about it because “seriously, can’t you see I’m in a different place right now????” well…you get that from some “church people”…forgive them anyway… *sigh*.

The point is, in the presence of Worship, God is there. You need answers from God? Then visit Him in the place of Worship. You can worship Him in your living room, in the church or at work. In fact you can worship Him anywhere. God is limitless. You just have to make time for it. Don’t make excuses, make time for God, Amen.

God bless You everybody!😀


Worship Sunday: Comin’ Out

Hi Everybody!

Happy Sunday!

Well, as you know, I’ve been in worship mode lately. I will eventually come back to blogging on specific topics soon, but right now I just need to keep praising God for now.

This song that I’m posting today is to uplift anybody who is going through a hard time right now. Sometimes you will feel like you are stuck between a rock and a hard place, but make sure that the Rock you are stuck with is Jesus. Give Glory to God in the darkest times in your life because sometimes it is through the darkest moments in life that you will see the light shine brightly showing you the way out of where you are right now. Only God can rescue us through every trial. Trials are never easy, but we all have to go through them in order to become more refined as individuals. I know that for me, smiling through a trial acting like nothing is wrong has been the most intense struggle I’ve ever had to face; however, I know that if I did not hold onto my sanity I would have lost it and probably thrown in the towel into self-pity land in a state of depression. It’s all about building emotional strength and intelligence to handle the trial.

It’s not easy to rejoice in the trial but it is something I learned how to do because I am thankful to God for giving me the grace to see me through each day. My ears have become sharper to hear what He has to say because when you have nothing left, all you have will always be God. What I learned through my unemployment trial was that when you give God everything you have left even if it seems like nothing, He honors your gift with a reward. The truth is, we are more powerful than we could ever imagine. Even if we don’t realize it, we have talents that we can multiply if we put them to use. The thing is, you have to allow God to use you when He wants your full attention. It may seem like whatever He asks of you will not profit you, but God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Seek God in your trial and come as you are to Him. Allow yourself to become undone before Him so that He can re-create you to what you were destined to be, a conqueror, a might woman or man of valor, an overcomer, an over achiever, a king and queen of the most High God in your sphere of influence within your job, school, family or career. Let God use you and then He will create a path that is straight for you. His will is to prosper you…so if you believe in His way of doing things, and follow Him, you will definitely be successful in whatever you do.

Are you ready to do things GOD’s way, even if it doesn’t make sense?


This song is by Jonathan McReynolds called Comin’ Out. May this song minister to your spirit today. God Bless you everybody!

Worship: God is My Everything

Hi Everybody!

Happy Labour Day Canada!

I just want to post a song that I thought was just beautiful. It’s by Todd Dulaney called My Everything.

I believe my God is my everything. When you don’t have anything left, God is there, He becomes your everything. This song is about clinging onto Him because you know in you heart of hearts that God literally becomes your everything when you discover that life isn’t very fulfilling without Him being a part of it. May it minister to your Heart today. God Bless You Everybody!
