“Speaking worry gives voice to the lies of the enemy.” – Pastor Emma Squibb Our first lady couldn’t have said it any better. We mindlessly recite, “life and death lies in the power of the tongue.” We’re talking about life and death here! “Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.” (Genesis 1:3) “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised
You see, sometimes, you’ll be tempted to beat yourself up. I’m right here right now. Tempted to write yourself off as a failure because you haven’t lived up to your standards. You haven’t accomplished all that you want to accomplish. You feel stuck; as though you can’t pick yourself up and your sad about it. Guilty because you feel stuck. Guilty because your coping mechanisms aren’t working. Guilty because you’ve decided
Abba, I’ve been caught up in “doing.” I confess that I’ve been distracted… Dependent on immature faith & nearly overtaken by fear. Lord, On that day, nothing else will mater. It’ll just be me & you. No convention. No retreat. No program. Just us. How have I lived to honor and serve you? Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.
Testimony time!!!! This is my story of faith. When you know God has a plan, don’t waste time or energy fretting. You know the song that goes “when Jesus says yes, nobody can say no” #IssaFact. For about a month and a half, I’d been planning a trip to Harvard for my organization (I lead the African Students Association at my College). This was ASA’s first ever off-campus trip, so
Abba, I really wanted to punch her but you’ve changed my heart and I thank you. Abba, I’ve become extremely irritable, help me. Abba, I was in a rage, I can’t recall the last time I was that angry. Abba, She has hurt me, disrespected me and nearly humiliated me. My name, she defamed my name! Abba, Where does this process of forgiveness start? Abba, But, she’s evil. She has
Word! The Word. Read along with me. I’ve been meditating on these passages. I pray that God grants us spiritual wisdom and understanding as we read. (Colossians 1:9-10) <3 “Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come.” – Jeremiah 33:3 Nothing Can Separate Us From The Love Of God What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for
I really appreciate having edifying conversations with friends.. and friends of friends. On Friday Night I went to Brooklyn Tabernacle’s MVMT (Young Adults Ministry) Service (highly recommended btw, the next meeting is on March 17th @ 7pm). There was a WORD just for me at this meeting. I felt the preacher calling me out!! Yes.. it was a message about stewardship – specifically financial stewardship. OMGEEE. God is good. That’s not what today’s message is about
Be the friend you’re looking for. Be the boyfriend you’re looking for. Be the girlfriend you’re looking for. It really starts with you! I want to be that friend that’ll hold you down. Why? Well, I appreciate friends that HOLD ME DOWN. “Holding Down” involves being; Honest – with love Generous with constructive criticism Trustworthy Loving (that 1 Corinthians 13 kinda love) to name a few.. You’re in the danger zone if
As I stood in the back of the theater at church with Hillsong NYC, extremely disconnected to the worship as always, it hit me. I thought, “Lord, I should be able to worship you regardless of where I am. If I’m waiting on my favorite worship song before I open my mouth and lift up my hands, something isn’t right.” Is your relationship with Christ based on the church you attend?
Recap Video It’s been a little over a week now and I’m still in awe of what God did at Virtuous Rubies. First, I’d like to thank our sponsors. Never, in a million years did I think anyone would support my vision with $$$. A vision without sponsors, might just be a vision lol. So thank you so much Chetanna Okasi, Alex Zee, Ibukun S Babalola-Akanni & RCCG Jesus House Staten Island, NY. As
