Hello August 📌

Welcome into the eighth month of the year 🥁. August is here 💃🏿. You are alive and that is what matters. God is Awesome. What a gift it is to see yet another day. Scripture says in Psalm 118:24 “This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.” Child of God, rejoice because God is with you. The One who has allowed you to see this month is for you. Let your heart be filled with gladness and let your mouth overflow of thanksgiving of all that God has done for you.

It’s the start of something new. The rain is pouring but the sun is trying to make room to shine. May the month of August be a month to remember. May you look back over the past seven months and give thanks to God. Scripture reminds us in Psalm 77:11-12 “I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.” You see, God has done so much for us but as humans, it is quite easy to forget. Inasmuch as we have expectations of God in regards to doing a new thing in our lives, He has done so much that we haven’t even thanked him for.

As we have crossed over into the eighth month, it my prayer that we will praise God like never before. We are reminded in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, to “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” As believers, we are commanded to rejoice. Rejoicing isn’t reserved only during good times but in every season, we are commanded to give thanks unto God. As we praise, we must also pray for this God’s will for us. We rejoice because we have a Father who loves us so much. He has promised that He will never leave us not forsake us. To know Christ is to learn the essence of rejoicing. Surely, we will rejoice till the coming of our Lord and Personal Savior.

Child of God, it is my prayer that in this month, you will marvel at the new thing that God is doing in your life. I pray that you will have eyes to see but faith to believe. As it is written in Isaiah 43:19 “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” God is always at work in our lives even we can’t see it, we must have faith in Him. If God has done it before, surely He will do it again.

Like a seed planted in the garden, although we cannot see the cultivation of it, does not diminish the progress of it. May we remain rooted in the word of God like a seed planted in the ground. May we not allow anything to stand in the way of us abiding in the presence of the Lord. Scripture reminds us about the importance of abiding in John 15:5 which says “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” Child of God, choose to be intentional with your relationship with your Heavenly Father. Choose to seek His face always in every season. The more you seek Jesus, the more you know Him.

May this month of August be graced with God’s peace, joy, unfailing love and every blessings from above. May you testify of God’s goodness and faithfulness in the land of the living. Declare with your mouth “I ( insert your name ) remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” -Psalm 27:13. So shall it be in Jesus name.

To all the birthday celebrants, happy birthday 🎂. God bless you 🙌🏿👑🎁. May this be a birthday to remember filled with joy, laughter and surprises. May you enjoy every moment on your special day. God bless you 🙏🏿.

Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post. Cheers to this month of August 🥁💃🏿🤗. God’s blessings to you and your loved ones. Enjoy.

Renewal of Mind 📌

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable if anything is excellent or praiseworthy think about such things. -Philippians 4:8

One of the greatest joys in knowing Christ is that every day is another opportunity to encounter Him in an afresh way. You can never truly say you have encountered Christ and your life is the same. Life in Christ is the beginning of eternity. It is the foretaste of glory here on Earth. You can never encounter Christ and remain in the boat steering the wheels of the world. Encountering Jesus calls for a heart, mind and soul renewal. The truth is that we can never do it alone. We have the best helper in town; Holy Spirit. He is the gift that Jesus gave unto us and with Him, we can be transformed and live life fully to the greatest potential.

You see, it is easy to pursue after the things of the world. Momentarily, it seems enjoyable but I’ve come to understand that the things of this world are fleeting. Scripture makes it clear to us in 1 John 2:17 that “The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.” The will of God is as Jesus says in John 4:34 “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.” There is an assignment that we are each called to do here on Earth. In order to fulfill our assignment, we must seek Jesus. We must lay aside what we are familiar with and walk into the new but putting on the garment that Jesus gives to us.

Our key scripture taken from Philippians 4:8 illustrates the characteristics of Jesus in which He desires for His followers to emulate on their journey with Him. As believers, we have the word of God which is true because we have experienced Jesus for ourselves. The word has been revealed to us through the Holy Spirit. The more we seek Him, the more we know Him. Joshua 1:8 says “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” The Bible is our food as believers. The more we make room in our hearts for Holy Spirit to have His way in our lives, our fruits become evident. You can never deny a fruit that is fruitful. It’s in the same that when we abide in the presence of the Lord, our lives become a living proof, a reflection of His love, goodness and faithfulness in our lives. Our unwillingness to mediate on the word of God effects how we see life. It is when we don’t spend time in the word that our lives suddenly begins reflect the world. The word of God is a gift, a precious treasure that should not be taken for granted.

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12

When I think about our key scripture, I am reminded of James 1:2-3 which says “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.” It is a great reminder that no matter what we are facing here on this Earth, there is joy that is found in Christ. In order to having an understanding of this message, our minds have to be renewed. So often, we think that we can only be joyful when things are going well in our lives which isn’t true. Joy is not seasonal. It is the fruit of the Spirit that lives in us and bears witness of the One we serve. Joy blooms like a flower in every season of our lives and becomes evident when we remain in the Vineyard with the best Gardner.

As believers, our thoughts we be renewed when we learn the essence of dying to our flesh and taking up our cross daily. It is when we bring our thoughts to God and allow Him to walk with us through the journey that we are able to learn and acquire knowledge. It’s easy to say you know God based on what others have shared about the experience of who He is in their lives or much rather how they see God through their own lens. Another person’s experience of Jesus should never be your ultimate reason to deny Christ’s existence.

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Hebrews 13:8

As humans, understanding that the mind is a powerful tool can change the way we see life as a whole. What we feed ourselves become a reflection of the seed that is planted is our hearts, minds and souls. It’s in the same when it comes to the foods we consume. If we spend majority of our time eating junk food, it mirrors in our lives through sudden weight gain and if not dealt with in the timely manner can result to major health issues. As believers, we have what it takes to be able to live life in the way that we are called to understanding that our temple belongs to God.

Although we have what it takes to be able to venture on the journey of renewing our minds, child of God, it requires intentionality. Yes, as believers we have the word of God but so many believers struggle to even read the word. Our unwillingness to read the Bible, the manual given to us for this life will only keep us at bay. As believers, we don’t want to remain on the sidelines of the world. We want to grow and be apart of the Victorious Team; the body of Christ. This requires us playing our role. We can’t say we want to grow and not make the effort in being rooted in the garden. The gardener can only do His very best at planting the seed and watering the garden but He is not in total control of the end product. There are other factors that can possibly play a role to unfruitfulness and in the same way we as believers can relate.

Renewal of mind is among the many evidences of a believer rooted in Christ. Renewing our minds is free will but God will not force His mindset on us.

If we say that we want to grow in the word of God but we spend majority of our time on social media scrolling and looking at reels of everyone’s life, what fruit will bear in our lives? If we say we want to know more about God, but we spend our time not in His word, what seed are we planting? It’s easy to place the fault of not bearing fruit to our church leaders and those surrounding us but our unwillingness to do our part will result in a consequence we must face one day in life. Scripture says in Romans 12:2 “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Being conformed is quite easy humanly speaking but as believers, we have been given the power through the Holy Spirit to flee and flow in the way of the word. In order for our minds to be renewed, we must first acknowledge Christ in our lives. We must diligently seek His face always and be willing to go through the process of sanctification which is a life long process. It is not done overnight. It is the reason why we need the Holy Spirit every day of our lives. We must not rush Holy Spirit, we must make room in our lives for Him.

It is my prayer that in all that we do, we will set our minds on things above, pressing forward in Christ alone. The more we desire the food that Jesus offers, the more our souls become satisfied. The more we take in the word, the more the shackles of this world becomes loosened in our life. May we not compromise what we have received with what the enemy is offering us. The word of God is life and those who dwell in His presence are able to truly declare that Jesus is true, noble, righteousness, pure, lovely, excellent and worthy of all the praise.

Scripture Reflections

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! -2 Corinthians 5:17

So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. -2 Corinthians 4:16

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. -Colossians 3:2

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. -Colossians 3:16

Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post. God bless you 🙏🏿. May we be refreshed and renewed in the presence of God. Until next time, stay blessed and rooted in Christ.

Poem | Heaven’s Dew 📌

Rain on my hands.

Rain on my hair.

Rain on my skin.

Rain on my shoes.

Rain on the trees.

The blessings are here!

Fresh outpouring, covering the earth with God’s glory.

Little children walking with their umbrellas

as the sound of thunder makes its first

appearance in the sky.

As the little children fasten their steps,

the rain simmers down.

Little drops falling to the ground

as the birds chirp, singing their songs.

It is raining and I can’t help

but smile because my heart is peace.

Amidst the storms of life,

there is still God.

The One who calms the raging storms,

parting the sea so that we can walk through

it, is still my God.

The sun is shining now

and the little children from a far distance

are climbing the stairs into their homes.

No more umbrellas.

Streets are empty

but the flowers and grass have been

watered.

Soaked in love

by Heaven’s dew on this beautiful day

in the month of July.

Milk and honey is here!

Right here in this place,

seasoned with grace;

God is Here!

And the manifestation and overflow is NOW!

Receive all that God has prepared for you.

Rejoice!

Poem|Before The Sunsets✍🏾

A new day has dawn

but the birds are quiet,

no sound of worship

at 4am

and the trees are still

but yet still evergreen

before my eyes.

The wind isn’t blowing

but I can feel the heartbeat

of its longing to whistle this early morning.

The moon is nowhere to be found.

Hidden beneath the sky

but the sun is slowly awakening, ready to shine.

Daughter,

today is a gift and you are here

alive and breathing

not gasping for air.

Son,

You have risen by grace.

Standing tall by faith.

Wrapped in the arms of love

and adorned in light

by the King above.

A new day has dawn,

daughter

and you are here.

Son,

you are here

and that is what matters.

Even though the leaves

have fallen time and time again,

you have not given up on life.

You have risen from countless falls

and that alone is a reason to celebrate

yourself.

You are not buried.

You are alive, and watered by God.

You are apart of the story

unfolding in God’s Vineyard

but do not forget this one thing.

Fix your eyes on Jesus!

Let your gaze be set on Him

as each day unravels and

before the sunsets,

and your eyes take its final breath,

don’t forget to say

thank you to God

for allowing you to

see the gift of a new day

and the beauty of the sunflowers

blooming gracefully in your garden.

Elyashib 📌

Oswald Chambers once said “No matter who or what we are, God restores us to right standing with Himself only by means of the death of Jesus Christ.” Child of God, we serve a living God who restores us completely. When all hope is lost, we can look up to Jesus, our Great Restorer. There is absolutely nothing that God cannot restore. After all, everything that happens under the sun doesn’t catch Him by surprise. Throughout the Bible, there are many instances that has proven God to be a doer and restorer of His people.

When we take a look at Job, who was known as a blameless and upright man, we see the heart of a servant who loved God and cared deeply for his family. Job had everything but in an instant moment, He lost it all. Scripture tells us in John 10:10 that “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” The enemy doesn’t come to give us life but he comes to toil with our minds leading us to frustration but Jesus has come to give us life in abundance. He has come to turn things around for our good and for His glory. Even though Job lost everything, God restored him in a way He didn’t expect it. When God restores us, it’s far beyond what we lost in the fire.

The 4 R’s in Restoration | As I was reading an article, this was mentioned.

  • Replace: God replaces our hearts of stone with hearts of flesh.
    Ezekiel 36:26
  • Renew: By focusing on the Bible, our minds can be continually renewed.
    Romans 12:2
  • Revive: Through the resurrection of Jesus, we are given new, everlasting life.
    Romans 6:4
  • Return: Through the saving work of Jesus on the cross, we are reunited with God.
    Romans 5:10

Child of God, it is the desire of our Heavenly Father to restore us. God longs for us to draw near unto Him. In a world that is broken, shattered and in desperate need of a rebuilder and a restorer, we as believers can attest that Jesus is the only answer. There is a longing for restoration in all areas of life. Whether it be our health, marriage, job, finances or spiritual well being, there is a need of restoration in our world today more than ever.

There is beauty in restoration when we allow God to step into our situation and make room in our lives for Him to do what only He can do.

There are certain things in life that cannot be physically repaired but can be restored. For instance, let’s take a look at a mirror. A mirror is fragile and can easily become broken. It is something that we use in our every day lives. We use mirrors for different purposes but anything is bound to happen depending on where the mirror is located and how one takes care of it. As I’m writing this post, I’m reminded of my mirror that I’ve had for 12 years. If there’s anything I’ve learned over the years about myself is this: I love taking care of my stuff. Money doesn’t come by easy and though certain things do happen that is beyond our control, there are things that we can do our best to take care of in our lives and within our reach.

Throughout scripture, we are reminded of a God who loves His children so much that He sends His one and only begotten son Jesus to die for all of humanity that our relationship with Him will be restored. Scripture reminds us of this “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” ( See 2 Corinthians 5:11 ). John 3:16 is the greatest demonstration of love and the power of restoration in one fold. God’s heart to restore us stems from His love for His children.

May you be reminded today and always that God is your Great Restorer. He is your Recompense. There is nothing too hard for God to do for you. Scripture says in Matthew 19:26, “Jesus looked at them and said, With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” We serve a God who is too faithful to fail us. The promise of restoration is sure. Joel 2:25 speaks of God’s promises towards us declaring this “I will restore you for the years the locusts have eaten the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm my great army that I sent among you. You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the Lord your God, who has worked wonders for you; never again will my people be shamed.” What God has spoken still remains now and forevermore. His plans and purposes changes not because of circumstances but He who has began a thing in our lives will surely bring it to town. Child of God, the restorer is in town. The rebuilder is still at work in your life. Rejoice! Find rest in knowing that God is working all things together. The God who turns ashes into beauty is your God. Daughter, God isn’t finished yet. Son, fix your eyes on Jesus, the author and the finisher of our faith. The One who makes all things beautiful in His time is at work. Smile. The Restorer of broken things is rebuilding and reshaping your life. Wait! Trust the Process. Get on board with the Orchestrator of your life.

Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post. God bless you 🙏🏿. Until next time, stay blessed and rooted in Christ 📖.

Hello July 📌

Welcome into the most glorious month of the year. July is here and my heart is so full of joy. The month I’ve awaited for but now I have seen it. As scripture says in Job 42:5, “My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you.” Like Job, my ears have heard of Jesus but my eyes have seen in this land of the living and surely I can testify of His love, kindness and grace towards me. When I look back over the months that have passed, I can’t help but smile at how far God has brought me. I am amazed at His goodness and His faithfulness. God, you’ve been good to me.

It’s by the grace of God that we are alive. You know, as humans it is so easy to take the gift of being alive for granted. Someone didn’t make it to see today and there’s another soul relying on oxygen to breathe. If you are here today, take this moment to thank God. Give thanks for life, God’s outpouring of His joy, peace, love and manifold of blessings throughout these months. He alone is worthy of all the praise. He parted the sea for you and I to be able to see this day. He made a way where there seemed to be no way because He alone is God. When He does a thing, it will showcase His glory.

It is my prayer that as you have stepped into the newness of this month, that you will seek the face of the Lord like never before. May your heart and soul hunger for the Lord. As you draw nearer unto Him, surely this I know that you will be satisfied. Scripture reminds us in Matthew 5:6 that “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” Child of God, you are already blessed but there is a greater measure of blessings that flows unto those who hunger and thirst for righteousness. There is an in filling and satisfaction, the fulfillment of a promise for those who seek the face of the Lord. I pray that you will choose to dwell in the presence of your Heavenly Father.

One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.

Psalm 27:4

There is beauty and refreshing in the gift of a new season. The seventh month of the year is here. As we may know the number represents rest, completion, healing, fulfillment of promises and so much more. The number seven is a big deal in the Bible. When you look through the word, there are so many instances that the number seven is mentioned and here we are in the month of greatness and awesome wonders.

As God has graced you with this day and month, know that it will be filled with beautiful surprises. The Lord desires for all of His children to flourish. Scripture reminds us in Psalm 1 that Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked but who takes delight in the law of the Lord and meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted in streams of water that yields its fruit in its season and its lead does not wither.” Child of God, it’s blooming season. May you flourish in all that you do. God has been watering you and He won’t stop now but remain in the garden and watch what He will do in and through you.

And though your beginning was small, your latter days will be very great. -Job 8:7

Child of God, Rejoice! God is with you. Though the journey hasn’t been easy, surely you can attest that the Lord has been by your side. He was watched over you and has outpoured His love upon you. Take joy in having a Father who loves you so deeply with an everlasting love. May you continue to live within His love and be refreshed in His presence. As July is here, with its sweetness and surprises, may you experience the overflow of milk and honey on every side. May your heart sing a new song as you marvel at the work of God’s hands in your life. Let praises rise from the inside. May your life be a reflection of God and may souls come to the knowledge of Him because of the Holy Spirits work in you.

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!

Philippians 4:4

Let the celebrations and congratulations spring forth like a fountain that overflows. Joy is here 💃🏿. Peace like a river is here 🥁. High favor like Esther is here. Crown 👑 season. Blessings upon Blessings are here. It’s a beautiful day and my heart is filled with so much joy I can’t even contain myself. It’s my birthday month 🎂💐. It’s all things divine & glorious. I have already started dancing, drumming and singing. My darling, July, you are dear to me. You are all things lovely. I will wear the crown that God has given me. July, you are sweet. This I know because when God is involved, all things are made beautiful in His time.

Cheers to crossing over into the month of July 🎉🎈🥁. To all my birthday celebrants, God bless you double double 💃🏿. May all that your heart desires be granted unto you. Beautiful surprises in this new chapter of your life. May you continue to walk with the Lord, seeking His face always. May the Lord surprise you and make His face shine upon you. I pray for the peace of God to reign in your life. Fix your eyes on Jesus and rejoice in the One who loves you so much. Have an awesome birthday Kings & Queens 🍰👑🤗

Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post. It’s such a pleasure having you here. God bless you 🙏🏿. A warm and a big hug from me to you ❤️.

Sound of Praise 🥁

When I look back over these past six months, all I can say is thank you Lord. A lot has happened but by His grace, I am alive. If you are reading this post, praise God for His goodness and faithfulness in your life. The Lord is worthy of all the praise. From January till June, He has preserved you and that alone is a reason to sing a song unto the Lord. The month of June was a blessing. It was a mark of my 7th year since I got baptized. I attended a beautiful wedding where God showcased Himself in a mighty way. It was there that I reunited with people I hadn’t seen in years. I had so much fun. I witnessed a girl whom I knows who hadn’t spoken in 16 years, gradually speaking. I was amazed and just so much more. June, was a month to remember and I am so grateful to God.

As we know, when the month is wrapping up, we always have to reflect. Reflection is essential because it helps us to know where we can do better and helps us to remember the journey. You know, humanly speaking, we tend to forget things so reflection brings certain things back into our memories. So let’s get started!

Eyes On You 📌

“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.” -Hebrews 12:2-3

When I think of us, as believers fixing our eyes on Jesus, I am reminded of someone driving a car. When someone is driving, they must fix their eyes on the road, the car ahead of them, and the traffic light for a signal for the journey ahead. Any sort of distraction can lead to a possible accident. In the same way, as believers, if our eyes are not fixed on Jesus, it is easy for us to get caught up in the things of the world. So often, there are so many distractions in our lives, that steer us off the road of truly fixing our eyes of Jesus. Distractions such as social media, circle of friends, movies can play a role in our inability to grow in our journeys with the Lord. The more we spend time in the word of God, the less time we spend doing the things of the world.

To center our lives around Jesus requires us, being intentional and giving Him our undivided attention. Imagine going for a health check up and while there, you are required to check the quality of your eye sight.

As some of us may know, the procedure is straight to the point. You must cover one eye and read the letters on a chart and switch to the next eye once the letters have been read. Many times, because of the distance between us and the chart, it’s quite difficult to see the letters. We can end up saying a letter that isn’t even on the chart that can result to the nurse saying that we may need glasses and for some us, that is not the sound of good news. On the other hand, there may be a possible issue with our eyes, that may require us to get a set of glasses for us to see clearly but the truth is that is not what we signed up for. We go to our annual health check up in hopes of only good news. When we receive the news we least expected, it is quite easy for our minds to be cluttered with various thoughts that can lead to possible situation-ships.

In the same way, when we lose sight of Jesus, and get so caught up in the pursuit of the grandeurs and standards of life, there is the sound of the alarm. There is a consequence for our actions. This we know that the enemies agenda remains the same through it all. He has come to steal, kill and destroy ( See John 10:10 ) . We must learn to remain focused on Jesus by spending time in His word. The more we seek Him, the more we know Him. Generally speaking, it isn’t easy to fix our eyes on one thing for a long span of time but as believers, all things are possible through the help of the Holy Spirit. If you can sit and watch your favorite show for hours, spending time in the word of God is doable.

No matter where you are in your walk with the Lord, know that He awaits you. His desire is for us to run this race, fixing our eyes on Him. Scripture reminds us in Psalm 27:4 as David shares his hearts longing to be in the presence of the Lord as it is written

One thing I ask from the Lord,

this only do I seek:

that I may dwell in the house of the Lord

all the days of my life,

to gaze on the beauty of the Lord

and to seek him in his temple.

Psalm 27:4

What a joy it is to know that in the same way that David poured out His heart to the Lord, we can do the same. Beyond just pouring, we can receive all that the Lord has already prepared for us if only we learn the essence of fixing our eyes on Him. There is power in what we see but when our sight is blurred, it is quite difficult to understand the vision. It is the sole reason why we must ask the Lord for new eyes, ears, and heart wherever we come into His presence. When we ask, surely we will receive from the Lord.

What we fix our eyes on, can easily become the center of our attention.

It is my prayer, that we will fix our eyes on one thing. The one thing that remains the same all through the ages is Jesus. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever ( Hebrews 13:6 ). People may come and go. Things will fade and even the flowers will wither but one thing is constant and His name is Jesus. When we learn to fix our eyes on Jesus, we begin to enjoy the beauty and gift of life. We get to see things from His lens and appreciate the outpouring of His wisdom, love and everything that can only be found in His presence. Child of God, the secret to knowing the Lord, is making a decision daily to fix your gaze on Him. It is when you make room in your heart to receive, that all the antennas of your soul are opened to respond to the calling of one voice. Vula Indawo ( Make Room ). Fija tus ojos en Jesús ( Fix your eyes on Jesus ). Yote ni juu yako Yesu ( It’s all about you Jesus ).

The Source 📌

For it is you who light my lamp; the Lord my God lightens my darkness. -Psalm 18:28

Have you ever experienced a power outrage? If you haven’t, please let me know which city, town or village you are living in because there must be another power flow in your vicinity that we need to tap into because as we know having a power outrage is no joke.

On a day like this, the rain poured gently but then all of sudden the power went off. Then five minutes later, it came back on and then it went off for a while. You see, this was not even a problem for me because I’m actually used to these type of things but it was quite annoying because I was trying to register for a course and then I received a message stating “This cannot be done at this time”. So I was confused and it was in that moment that I realized that I had my light on but now it’s dark in my room. I arose from my bed to check the switch and while at it, walked around to check the time elsewhere, and everything was off. I wasn’t upset because there was no reason to to be. I actually took the time to read a Bible Plan on the Youversion app. Honestly, this was actually a time of rest for me.

Time passed so I decided to call the electricity company to see what exactly was going on, only for me to be inform that there are multiple power outrages in my neighborhood and the power will come back in two hours time. At this point, my phone is at 11 percent and I’m receiving a message from a family member of how this is crazy and how they wish they had a generator. Last week the power went off but that time around, it was actually raining so hard, thunder, lightning and everything in between you can possibly think of when it rains.

In moments like this, when the power goes out, I’m reminded of who my source is once again. Jesus is my source. Imagine not being able to warm your Empanadas when your hungry and your sleeping in the heat because the power is out. Even in those times when I couldn’t eat, I laid down, opened my window slightly to get some fresh air and made use of the time by reading a Bible Plan. There was no hint of light in my room but light shined forth as I read my Bible Plan “Jehovah Mekedesh” ( The God Who Sanctifies ) .

As believers, we have the greatest source ever but many times, we don’t recognize the power in the name we profess. We call on the name of Jesus without having faith that He will respond whenever we call. We put our faith in Earthly things that is not always reliable. The power outrage reminds me that in this world, there will be faulty outlets but as believers we have a God whom all power flows from that is able to make all things abound for us. The power outrage is a reminder that we are too dependent on electrical power. Sometimes, it baffles me how people even react when there’s a shutdown on social media. It shows how we cannot live without having certain things in our lives but can we truly say that about our relationship with God?

We live in a culture that spend more time on their phones more than anything. Our phones are our daily bread. Leaving our phones for 5 minutes is like a death sentence. We must always be on our phones at all times. The problem is that our phones have become the number one weapon that the enemy uses greatly to draw us closer to him. You will be surprised of certain sites and conversations that believers get themselves involved in if only the history tab is displayed. The enemy has only one job and it has never changed. The job of the enemy is to “steal, kill and destroy” ( John 10:10 ). So as believers, we must be intentional to being connected to Jesus, our only power source.

Like the power outrage, we so often experience a spiritual power outrage. Scripture reminds us in John 15, that Jesus is the true Vine and we are the branches. In order for us, to bear fruit that last, we must remain in the Vineyard. We must be connected to Jesus in every season of our lives. We can’t expect to be nourished when we are living outside of the Vineyard. The power of God is the best flow we can ever experience. We will never know we need the power of God until we check our lives. Even with that, we will need the help of the Holy Spirit to speak to our hearts.

He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.

Isaiah 40:29

In our weakness, we receive strength from our ultimate power source. As believers, we have light. There is power made available unto us because of God’s grace that is sufficient for us. We cannot do anything without Jesus. Even if we try, time and time again, we fail. Like the power outrage, we can try to go and figure out what is wrong with power source in our homes but we are not the chain supply of that power. There is a power box that is positioned somewhere for everything to flow at his maximum potential. We can only try but even our effort will not be the determinate of the matter at hand. We can easily become frustrated because the food in our fridge will spoil or our phones aren’t charged up for us to check the latest updates of things that matter in our lives but in those moments, may we be reminded that we are not in Control.

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

Psalm 46:10

Praise be to God, who supplies our every need. Jesus, our all sufficient Father who makes all things abound in ways that we can imagine. Jesus, is our living hope. The power of His love is more than enough. His love is our light. It is the source from where all things flow. God is too faithful to fail us. When there isn’t electricity, and it seems like we are missing out on lives festivities, may we be reminded that we have Jesus, who is the source of our life.

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

Psalm 119:105

Reflection Questions

1. Who are you connected to in this season of your life? Are they drawing you closer to God or are they pulling you away from journeying with God? Is so, what are you doing about it?

2. Who do you identify as your Source?

3. What are the things in our lives that causes spiritual outage in our walk with the Lord?

4. What are some ways you can remain connected to Jesus? What are sacrifices, you might have to make to stay rooted in the faith?

Scripture Reflections

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shined. -Isaiah 9:2

He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. -Hebrews 1:3

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. -2 Corinthians 12:9

For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. -1 Corinthians 1:18

Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. -1 John 4:4

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. -Romans 1:16

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. -Genesis 1:3

Happy Father’s Day 📌

Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing men all around the world. Today is a special day and I celebrate you all. What a joy it was to see people share pictures of their dad and memorable moments they’ve had over the years. Inasmuch as it is amazing to see how so many people showed their love to their dads, there are still people in our world today, who don’t have the best relationship with their fathers. On this day, there are families who are mourning the loss of their fathers and those who struggle to celebrate this day because of the pain they are feeling not having the presence of their Earthly Father in their lives.

For some people, this day doesn’t matter to them at all due to the experiences they have undergone with their Earthly Father. This day is attached to pain, hurt and so many mixed emotions. On this day, it is my prayer that families will be restored. The depth of our wounds doesn’t determine God’s love for us. God loves us so much. His love for us is what He wants us to embody to those around us. Our Earthly fathers aren’t perfect but God is still at work in their lives. One of the greatest gift that we have Jesus; our living example of a Good Good Father.

As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him.

Psalm 103:13

May this day serve as remembrance of God’s love for us. On this day and always, may we love on our Earthly Father’s in the way that God loves us. Our fathers are a gift to us. A gift may not look the way you want it to be packaged but it’s still a gift and what you do with it, matters. On this day, for those who are hurting and wish they had a better relationship with their fathers, I pray that you will feel the love of God in a special way. I also pray that you will find it in your heart to forgive. Forgive as Christ has already forgiven you. God’s love for you is equal to the way He loves your Earthly Father. God doesn’t love you more than your father. His love is not in parts, it’s wholesome.

To the father, in the waiting room trusting God for the gift of a child, it is my prayer that you will experience the joy of fatherhood. May you be reminded that God hasn’t forgotten you. Even in the waiting season, God is doing something miraculous. Speak life over the womb of your spouse. Declare “Be Fruitful”. There is power in the tongue and the words that we speak. Your time will surely come and your heart will be full of joy of the wonders that God has done for you.

It’s Father’s Day and my heart is full. Honestly when I look back over my relationship with my Earthly Father, all I can say is thank you Father. I have faced my own personal battles but God has seen me through. Surely, I can testify that He is a God who restores! No one is Perfect but the Perfect one died that we may live freely in Him and love as He loves. I’m so grateful for the gift of my Earthly Father and my Heavenly Father. To know God is to love Him. It’s a special day for the men in our lives. I hope that you have a wonderful day with your Father; creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Take the time to pray for your Earthly Father, today and always.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this blog post. God bless you. Have a wonderful day of celebration 🎉 with the one your heart loves dearly. Enjoy 😊

The Celebration 🎈

On a day like this, I can’t help but smile when I think about God’s goodness and faithfulness throughout the journey. Seven years ago on this day, I got baptized. I made a bold declaration of my faith in Jesus in front of everyone in church. I remember that day like it was yesterday. It was on a Wednesday and I was so excited but nervous at the same time. I spent the whole day before the moment just in my room, smiling but yet still nervous as a wreck. I recall when my church made an announcement that baptism was going to be taken place. I knew right then that it was my time.

Before then, I had already given my life to Christ during youthful days but this decision to get baptized was an interesting one. When I look back over these past seven years, all I can say is thank you Lord. The battles came on every side but even through it all, the Lord has been with me. Even when the tears fell and I didn’t understand certain things along the journey, He was only preparing me. I’ve come so far because of grace. I may not have everything that society says we should have a particular age but I have the greatest gift and His name is Jesus. You see, when you have Christ in your life, you have everything. In His presence, there is fullness of joy and every spiritual blessing.

My heart is full of joy as I take the time to reflect on this journey. June 17th, is a day that feels like my birthday. When the day is approaching, my mind races as I think back on the days turned into months and years. I just want to take this time to say thank you to everyone that has been apart of this journey. I thank God for His love that He has shown me. I’m grateful for the little children that He has led me to because my prayer has always been “Lord lead me to the little children that I may lead them back to you.” The Lord has drawn the little children to me in ways I can’t even explain it and I’m so thankful because in their own way, they remind me of God’s love for me. I thank God for the battles because it has made me stronger and has drawn me ever close to Him. I thank God for the gift of my family, church, friends and everyone that God has allow me to cross paths with. I am amazed when I look back on how God has used me in ways that I could’ve imagined because He is an Intentional God. Today is a special day to me. I’ve cried and smiled all together because although the road hasn’t been smooth, and the truth is that it will not be but one thing is sure and I can testify of this is that God is with me. He has been with me. As scripture says “Never will I leave you nor forsake you”. That is our God; forever Faithful.

My prayer on this day is that anyone who hasn’t accepted Jesus as their Personal Lord and Savior will come to know Him. I pray for an open heart to receive Jesus and walk the journey with Him. I pray for those who once believed but due to circumstances their faith got shaken and doubted God, that they will draw nearer to the Father. I pray for the One who is afraid of sharing their faith because of what people are going to say. Today is a new day. God has blessed you with yet another day to see. You are here for a purpose. No matter where you are on your journey, Jesus awaits you with open arms. Come into the arms of the One who calls you by name. Jesus loves you and He longs to have a relationship with you. Your heart’s response matters! Your “Yes” to Jesus is the greatest decision you will ever make in this life. If you have not accepted Jesus as your Personal Lord and Savior or if you have but want to rededicate your life to Him, today is your day.

Salvation Prayer 🙏🏿

Lord Jesus, I come to you today. I admit that I am a sinner. I have done many things that don’t please you. I have lived my life for myself only. I repent of all my sins and I ask that you will forgive me. I believe that you died on the cross for me, to save me. You did what I could not do for myself. I come to you now and ask you to have your way in me. I surrender myself to you. I acknowledge that you are Lord and my Personal Savior. From this day forward, help me to live every day for you and in a way that pleases you. I love you, Lord, and I thank you for the gift of Salvation and the assurance that I will spend all eternity with you. Amen.

Thank you for reading this blog post. It’s a special day for me. I am so grateful to share this joy with you all. God bless you 🙏🏿🥁🤗.

Rejoice 📌

To know Jesus is to love Him. In loving Him, we learn the essence of having unceasing joy in every season of our lives. Scripture reminds us to rejoice in the Lord always. The gift of knowing Jesus is a blessing and a great reminder to the reason why we should rejoice. In a world where many are searching for answers, we know the answer to the world’s groaning and heart cry. The only answer is Jesus, the light of the world. When you have Jesus, you have everything. You don’t lack any good thing. Society says you must obtain riches in order for you to be happy but in Christ, we have joy which is the fruit of the Spirit that overflows. Joy isn’t based on circumstances but it is the power of the Holy Spirit that flows in our lives. When you are connected to the Source, you can rejoice. Even when things around you don’t make any sense, you know who you can lean on. No matter what what you are going through, when you have Jesus, you can rejoice because you are safe in the shadow of his wings.

As believers, we must understand that the world may never comprehend what it looks like to rejoice but we continue to radiate in the light of the hope that we have in Jesus. Scripture reminds us that we have hope in Christ so we don’t have to live in fear and worry of what tomorrow has in stored for us because we know who goes ahead of us. We are reminded in Zephaniah 3:17 that “The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.” What a joy it is to know that we have a Father who is with us in every side. The storm can never measure up to our God. He is greater, far above the storm. Child of God, you can rejoice even amidst your trials. You can declare as it is written in Psalm 118:24 “This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Romans 12:12

Everyday is a gift that doesn’t have to be unraveled to us. Someone didn’t wake up today but you are alive. The truth is, that alone is a greater reason to thank God for breathing life into you. As we know, when there’s life, there’s hope. Being a Christian doesn’t mean that life will be a bucket full of roses. You will face challenges here on Earth but we have an assurance that no matter the situation, God is with us. He alone is present in His presence. You may not be where you want to be but you are exactly where God wants you to be. You may not have a job right now but you are still at peace. Although money isn’t flowing, God is sustaining you. You may not have everything that the world expects you to have at a certain age but you are not lacking because God has been supplying your needs. You may not be married yet but God is preparing you in ways that may not understand. The Lord is with you and that is a promise that He has made unto us declaring that never will He leave us not forsake us. He is a Covenant Keeping God. You can lean on God. When all else fails, put your trust in God. He alone has made a way for you time and time again. Rejoice in knowing Jesus. Take joy in having a Father, Friend, Savior and King in your life. Rejoice in having access to the presence of God. Rejoice in knowing that when you call on the name of the Lord, He listens and answers you at the right time. Child of God, be reminded that God is with you. You are so loved and created for a purpose. Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!

Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post. God bless you 🙏🏿. Until next time, stay blessed and rooted in Christ. Remember always that Jesus loves you ❤️.

The Greatest Name 📌

And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.

Acts 4:12

There is one name I know who saved me and for this reason, I am alive today. His name is Jesus. Today, and always, He will always remain the same. Too often as believers, we underestimate the power of the name of Jesus. We take for granted the gift that we have already received. Yet still, there are still so many people in our world today that haven’t accepted Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. More than ever, the world needs to know about Jesus. We can’t be silent about what we have tasted. The gift is made available unto all. Salvation is for every soul. God sent His one and Only son Jesus to die on the Cross for all of humanity that we will live eternally with Him. Earth is not our home. We are here on an assignment. We are passing by to fulfill our God-Given assignment. We are here to love and to be a reflection of the One we profess. One day, the Lord will call each and everyone of us home but there is a place for each person.

Question of the day

1. Have you accepted Jesus as your Personal Lord and Savior?

2. What life are you living? Is your life founded in the word of God or the standards of this world?

3. If you have accepted Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, have you shared the message with those around you?

Scripture Reflection

How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? -Romans 10:14

Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post. May you be encouraged to stand firm in the faith. May you share the message of the Gospel that others will come to the knowledge of Christ. God bless you 🙏🏿

Giver of Peace ✍🏾

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.

John 16:33

Paul Chappell once said “Because of the empty tomb, we have peace. Because of His resurrection, we can have peace during even the most troubling of times because we know He is in control of all that happens in the world.” This is the confidence that we have as believers in Christ Jesus. No matter what we face in this life, we have an assurance that peace has been made available unto us. The peace that Jesus gives is life. The world can never offer us peace because it’s in shambles and in need of great repair but amidst the chaos, the promise for the believer to experience peace is promise that has been made known unto us.

One of the greatest assurance that we have as believers is that God is with us. Through scripture, God makes it clear to us that never will He leave us nor forsake us. Scripture reminds us in Psalm 91:7-8 that “A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.” This is the joy and reward of dwelling in the secret place. The Lord shields us from the scheme of the enemy and comforts us through it all.

Peace is gift that you don’t have to work hard to receive. It is the fruit of the spirit ( Galatians 5:22-23 ). It is a seed that has already been planted into you when you accepted Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior. The world cannot offer it to you. Societies understanding of peace is rooted in having surplus of money in your bank account, living in a mansion and wearing the latest trendy clothes. Each of these things are not foundational and can easily be shaken. The peace of Christ is constant. It is not seasonal and based on conditions. It is ever-present and refreshing. The peace of God is a covenant that is everlasting.

It is my prayer that you will experience the peace of God. The peace that the Spirit gives is life in abundance. The world can never take it away from you when your heart and mind is stayed on Jesus. Scripture reminds us in Isaiah 26:3, “You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.” Though the storms of life will come our way, we have a Father who will be with us and lead us each and everyday. Peace is the offering from the Father’s heart unto us like dew from Heaven. God is aware of the storms in this life because He has walked through it but He was about to go through the fire, we can too because we are never alone in this journey.

Scripture Reflections

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. -John 14:27


When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. -Isaiah 43:2

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:7

Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post. I pray that you will experience the overflow of God’s peace now and always. God bless you 🙏🏿.

Who Am I?

Scripture: But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. -1 Peter 2:9

Before you came to know God, He already knew you. Scripture makes it known to us in Jeremiah 1:5 that our existence doesn’t catch God by surprise because He alone had us in mind. In the same way, He had Jeremiah in mind, God also had a plan for you.

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.

Jeremiah 1:5

As a child of God, knowing how God sees you is very important. You are not here on this Earth by mistake. You are here for a purpose but when you don’t know who you are and whose you belong to, it’s really hard to navigate through life. You find yourself hopscotching everywhere just to look for approval and love in the arms of people who haven’t had a taste of what your soul longs for.

In a world yearning for people and things to satisfy their souls, as believers we have the greatest gift that is not far fetched; that is realer than we think. We have Jesus! In a culture where people are so fixated with using astrology, personality test, and so many variety of tests to tell them who they are, as believers in Christ Jesus, we don’t have to go soul searching. Our identity is in Christ. We have the word of God and that is more than enough. Is that to say that there aren’t believers who still identity themselves with astrology and other forms of the things of the world? No! There are so many believers who still identity themselves with astrological signs. Whenever I come across people like that, it doesn’t surprise me because most likely before they came to the knowledge of Christ, they identified themselves with astrological signs so it will take the conviction and deliverance from the Holy Spirit before they come to the realization that astrology isn’t real. It becomes real to the individual when that’s all they’ve known and that’s who they’ve identified themselves to be. It seems like everyone is searching for something to tell them who they are in order for them to feel that they belong to society.

The Bible makes it clear to us that all men and women were created in the image of God ( Genesis 1:27 ). We are created to be a reflection of the one who created us. You and I are not an afterthought. God had a plan for us from the very beginning of creation. We are unique, fearfully and wonderfully made in God’s image. Yet still, there are so many people in our world today, going through an identity crisis.

The truth is, you can look everywhere to find who you are but until you come to know Christ, you will never know who you really are. You will continue to go on a scavenger hunger in search of who you are and wonder if you are relevant/seen in society. while society encourages us to soul search for who we are, most times we are likely to identify ourselves by our career, culture, environment and etc. Many times, when asked who we are, our immediate response usually refers to our profession.

James: Sarah, tell me who you are?

Sarah: I am a Nurse 👩🏾‍⚕️ and I enjoy baking on my free time.

Although our career can be connected to the place where we search for our identity, it shouldn’t stop there. There is so much more to us other than the clothes we wear, our careers, financial, relationship status , accomplishments and culture. The truth is that when our identity is founded on these core standards of society, we miss out on cultivating a relationship with God, who created us for a purpose. It is when we seek Him, that we know ourselves because He has an ultimate plan for lives. We can try to figure out who we are by using the measurement of this world, but we will always find ourselves empty in search of something else. God longs for us to have a relationship with Him. Everything in this world is ever-changing but we serve a God who is constant and unchanging.

In order for us to know who we are in Christ, we must know the One who created us. We must continually seek His face and remain rooted in His word. The word of God tells us who we are. No matter how you have seen yourself, know that God’s definition of who you are surpasses all things.

In Christ, you are loved, forgiven, saved, chosen, redeemed, adopted, accepted, protected and so much more. This is the joy of knowing the One who created you. It is when you seek the face of the One who knew you before your mother even came to know of you, that you know the purpose of your existence.

Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post. God bless you 🙏🏿. Remember always, that you are so loved by God. You are alive on purpose. God was intentional when He created you. Seek His face always. Stay blessed and rooted in Christ 🤗🥁

Hello June 📌

Welcome into the month of June. It’s by the grace of God that we have crossed over into the sixth month of the year and my heart is filled with gladness. I absolutely love the month of June. It’s the month I got baptized. Its an interesting month in so many ways but it’s also a month that the enemy really deals with the minds of God’s people. With that in mind, remain in the secret place and be drenched in the word of God.

It is my prayer that as we have crossed into the month of June that we will set our minds on things above ( Colossians 3:2 ). So often as believers, we are reminded to fix our eyes on Jesus and though it may seem easy, the reality is that it’s not easy when we don’t invite the Holy Spirit. In a world filled with so demands from our family, friends and our jobs, fixing our eyes on Jesus takes intentionality. I’m reminded of the story of Martha and Mary when I think of being intentional. In Luke 10:38-42, a story is told about two sisters whom Jesus visited. Jesus was just passing by when a woman named Martha opened her home to Him. Although Martha opened up her home for Jesus, she didn’t make time for Him. She was too busy making preparations but much rather Mary, Martha’s Sister “sat at the Lords’s feet listening to what He said.” The question is where would you be found at the time of the Lord’s visitation. So many believers struggle to learn the essence of resting at the feet of Jesus. We are so used to the hustle and bustle of life; filled with so many distractions from social media and the people in our lives. It’s so interesting that Martha who opened her home for the Lord didn’t respond the call of Jesus. She was rather too concerned about the work that had to be done but I love Jesus response to her “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things but few things are needed or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Child of God, what will you choose in this season of your life? Abiding in the presence of the Lord or being concerned about the affairs of this world?

The powerful revelation that I received as I read this scripture is that although Martha opened up her home for Jesus, her heart wasn’t opened. Mary rather had her heart opened and received the blessing. As believers, we don’t know the time and hour of visitation but we must be always be positioned in our hearts because it becomes a reflection on everything that we do. We don’t want to miss the blessing of the Lord.

“Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” ( Luke 10:42 )

The Father wants us to receive the outpouring of His love for us. Scripture tells us in Jeremiah 31:3 that “The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.” It is my prayer that in this month that we will make room in our hearts to receive from the Lord. So many believers struggle with receiving God’s love because of how love was presented to them. There are so many that believe that they have to work in some way to receive love not recognizing that God’s love is not based on condition. You can never work to receive His love for you. You don’t have to prove a thing but God has already approved of you from the very beginning when He sent His son Jesus to die on the Cross for you. He proposed to you. Your only response that is needed is “Yes”. Your “Yes” to Jesus is the greatest response you can make in this lifetime.

June is here and Jesus is here too. May you experience the fullness of God’s presence as you bask with Him. I pray that you will experience restoration ( Joel 2:25 ), Ephphatha on every side ( Mark 7:34 ), strength ( Isaiah 40:29-31 ), light 💡 ( Genesis 1:1 ) and all of God’s blessings in Jesus name.

It’s the sixth month and we are alive by God’s grace. Child of God, march forward in Christ alone. May your mind be renewed ( Romans 12:2 ). Pray over your mind. It is my prayer that you will be rest assured of your identity in Christ. Take the time to read scriptures of who you are in Christ 🙏🏿. Remember what God says about you. Don’t let the standards of this world and what others say about you define you. You are God’s Masterpiece ( Ephesians 2:10 . When God created man on the sixth day, He saw all that He has made and it was very good ( Genesis 1:31 ).

As the Lord has parted the sea for us, it is my prayer that our hearts will continue be filled with thanksgiving. May we continue to give praise to the One who is worthy of it all. God has been good to us. I pray for new eyes for eyes to see, ears for us to hear and a new heart to receive all that the Lord for already prepared us.

Cheers to this month of June 💃🏿🤗🥁. God bless you all. For everyone celebrating their birthdays, wedding, and anniversaries, may God bless you abundantly 🙌🏿❤️. I celebrate with you.
