Today, take a moment to recharge your self-confidence. If you don’t believe in you, then who will? it’s not arrogance, its godliness….GOD never doubts himself!

Have you ever talked to people and they just complained almost about ANYTHING / EVERYTHING? Ugghhh..

Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to Me. Get away with Me and you will recover your LIFE. I’ll show you how to take a REAL REST. Walk with Me and work with Me — WATCH how I do it. LEARN the UNFORCED RHYTHMS of GRACE. I will not lay anything HEAVY or ILL-FITTING on you. Keep COMPANY with Me and you will LEARN to LIVE FREELY and LIGHTLY” (Matthew 11: 28-30 Msg Bbl)…

One of the MAIN REASONS why MANY Christians are ALWAYS IN NEED of God to “BRING THEM OUT” of something, or “GET THEM THROUGH” something, is because they haven’t yet LEARNED to SPEND TIME with Jesus and LEARN of Him and His WAYS.

Jesus lived STRESS-FREE because He was ALWAYS walking according to Kingdom PRINCIPLES and YIELDING to the RULE of His Father. Doing so kept Him in PERFECT PEACE, even when ADVERSITY, PERSECUTION, and the THREAT of DEATH were upon Him.

Now, as Born-Again BELIEVERS, He says to US that WE can EXPERIENCE the same PERFECT PEACE and VICTORY in LIFE as He did – by LEARNING of Him, YIELDING to Him, and TRUSTING COMPLETELY in Him that He views our BEST INTERESTS and WELL-BEING as His PRIORITY.

In the Kingdom of God, there’s NO ROOM for DEFEAT, STRESS, WORRY, or FEAR. For if we have CAST these things on Jesus, they NO LONGER BELONG to US!!!

Stop stressing……………

Speaking Deliverance – Over Myself


image

Father God in the Name of Jesus…..

I break the power of every principality, powers, rulers of darkness and wicked spirits in my life, and every evil work directed against me in the Name of Jesus Christ!  I plead the blood of Jesus Christ over my life to protect me from the evil one, and I claim the power of the Holy Spirit over all of the kingdom of darkness, for greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world.

Satan, you and your minions have no authority in my life for I belong to the Lord, Jesus Christ, and I am seated with Him in the heavenlies. I command you, evil spirit (s), to let go and leave my life (or body), and I bind you from hurting anyone in the process, in the name of Jesus Christ.

The Spirit of The Devil in A Dress!


If someone….I mean if ANYONE would have told me that this type of video even existed, I would QUICKLY have called them a liar….. There is no way, you have to be kidding, stop trying to get attention, the Lord would not allow someone to do that etc..etc..etc.. However, since the God that I serve is “such a gentleman” he allows us to choose what we want in the life that HE so graciously gave us as a gift……

If you have children around…PLEASE DO NOT CLICK THIS VIDEO………

Talk about the enemy using anything and anybody is an understatement…… This poor woman, is indeed wrapped up in the enemy’s devices…… ANY believer surely knows that God would NOT approve of this….. I can REALLY see why a great deal of people think that people in ministry are crazy….. Talk about wanting ANY type of attention… I almost thought 10 times even before I posted this garbage…but it is on you tube and I wanted to public disgrace the devil just as he is trying to MOCK GOD!

He is using a woman to speak on the things of Christ while trying to tease and make men and im sure even some women lust after this woman….. This is a TRUE EXAMPLE of how the enemy also knows God’s word…… well he should – he had a good seat while he was up in heaven and evidently his place was not good enough……

It makes you angry but it shows you how bold the enemy is as well…. he is such a trickster but his time is short!

God will always win…so no need to get upset anymore but to get better tactics and strategies to beat the enemy with the power of Jesus Christ that is within…. WARFARE TIME…

I decree and declare that the hand of the enemy will lose his hold over this woman and she shall live for the ONE AND ONLY true living God…..

Ministry Burn – Out……


image

In ministry, anyone can get burned out when they are doing maybe a bit too much. I know that I am NOT the only one who has experienced this at all. You desire to do the will and the work of the Lord Jesus Christ and of course be a blessing to your local assembly. Being a leader takes WORK and most of the time after you are ALREADY in it full throttle…..you do not understand how much can be required of you…….

Leadership as well as the working pew members have moments when they just simply need A BREAK! Working in ministry is EITHER a full – time or a part – time job PERIOD! It takes a great deal of work, time, patience, energy and finances regardless what position you hold in your local assembly. Furthermore, if you also work outside your local church assembly – everything via your schedule gets amplified even higher.

But pastors are particularly susceptible to it because it is their job to understand life and to explain it to people. Week after week pastors stand in front of crowds explaining how the bible impacts life. But his words ring very hollow – empty – pointless when he feels as though nothing he says matters or makes a real difference. After a while he realizes that his preaching only calls for a little more morality, a little more bible study, and a little more love. His teaching doesn’t transform people’s lives – at least not in ways that really matter.

A pastor with ministry burnout feels like he’s on a treadmill or like he’s beating his head against a wall. He is very involved in a lot of ministry activities. But his efforts don’t accomplish much. He longs to be involved in genuine ministry but finds that the work he does often takes him further away from the ministry he is most passionate about.

I refer to the position of pastors as being a male but there of course are female pastors as well and over the last 10 years, there has been almost like a SPIRITUAL UPRISING in the church with women pastors. I also feel that this is the case because a great deal of men are “NOT in position” as being the head as God instructed them to be in.

Clergy burnout occurs when a pastor sees that the work he is doing isn’t accomplishing the results he intends. Even more frustrating, he doesn’t know how to do ministry any other way, which leads to feelings of inadequacy or failure.   

People place to many expectations on pastors and their wives, and forget they are human beings. The first family is not always the perfect family we have our share of problems to, and we need genuine Christ Love just like you expect it for yourselves. What has happened to compassion and understanding?
 
We all need to understand the importance of re-grouping to obtain that SECOND WIND that only God can give so we can continue this race for Christ’s sake……. to God be the glory…..

Bishop Timothy Williams – How I Remember Him


1

 I woke up today STILL thinking of this past weekend and the Funeral / Home – Going Service Celebration of my FIRST male example in ministry. Pastor Tim was a pastor that loves – not because God is in his heart but because he is in the heart of God.

His thoughts, actions and messages to the congregation always come from the heart of God. He was a great man that really is driven by his passion for God and his vision for God’s vision. Pastor Tim worked tirelessly in ministry and I have never seen him give any less prayer, time and energy to someone else’s vision than he did to his own. Even though he was a pastor, he was an extraordinary servant and an even more exemplary as a worshipper. He consistently encouraged us to become worshippers of God more than anything, regardless of our age.

 He was concerned about the whole person and his lifestyle is one that can be mimicked in the church, at home or at work. He was a proud husband and father and goes to great lengths to protect his family sometimes praying over them all night long. Always instructing them in how to hear God; draw near to God; honor God; give God all!

He was especially special to me on a personal note because he trained my mother to a place in God where I was actually able to see who God really was and what He can do.  She was MY EXAMPLE because he became HER EXAMPLE.

Everyone who walked into the doors of Christian Temple was actually able  to start fresh in the kingdom. It was life changing for me. And that’s what Pastor Tim did for many of us–change lives!

Pastor Tim was a father figure to many and I will deeply miss him….

Relationships

My Son and His Glad Heart!


image

My son and this man has always shared a special bond….. It is so imperative that men REGARDLESS of what age, have male role models, male mentors, male inspired people in their lives……

Being able to share priceless moments is a blessing and my son appreciates all the male mentors in his life. Besides another male mentor that is in his life, no one can bring a smile to his face like this man.

We actually even talked about no matter what community event or church function we are at and he sees him, he becomes ax excited young man. I told him that I know he indeed loves his father, but he does NOT SMILE, GIGGLE, CHUCKLE, GET EXCITED the same way when he is with his father v.s. this man.

My son met him about 5 -6 years ago and he loved him from day one and my son said to me today that he can tell that he has a good relationship with God. I said yes baby, he is special and has a great deal of characteristics that people just don’t see nor experience anymore from men in ministry.

He said he wish that his father had the same type of Jesus on him!!!! I tried MY BEST to keep my facial expressions together but inside I did know AND UNDERSTAND what my son was speaking about. It is not always about how much time a person spends with my son rather than the impact of what is done for him in the time is spent with him.

Of course I never have or ever will speak harshly about his father to him but kids ARE VERY HONEST about their feelings!! What they see as well as what they feel!!! My son is an Old Soul anyway…

image

Anyway, this Pastor / Bishop is a very nice……kind ….caring man of God who engages my son’s mind, soul and spirit and I am grateful that their connection was tactfully started years ago and is still very magnetic to my son from the moment he sees him.

This Bishop surely loves people and has a heart for REAL MINISTRY and he carries the scent of compassion that it’s soooooooooooo contagious!!!

Get Over The Hump With The Word –


image

The worst thing that the enemy could have ever done was attack you, lie on you, hit you, try to destroy you, but left you alive. The devil thought he had you, but you got a way. He should have killed you when he had a chance.
 
Now you are witness. Your testimony of victory is going to help somebody else overcome. They overcame by the blood of the Lamb and the words of their testimony.
 
Your words have more meaning to them, when your actions are consistent with them. Dont just talk it, but walk it.
 
This “Challenge” that you face is only an opportunity to show the “Champion” in you. It may not be easy, but it’s worth it.
