Psalm 100:1-6 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness come before His presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord He is God, it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise; be thankful unto Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endureth to all generations. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I was led by the Holy Spirit to remind everyone of how blessed we are in spite of any difficulties we may be experiencing. Regardless of our troubles we are still blessed beyond measure. It is God's goodness that we are awakened each day clothed in our right minds with a reasonable portion of our health and strength. All of our basic needs are met (food, clothes and shelter) and even the homeless are blessed just to see another day.Let's close by saying, each day's blessings are too numerous to…Continue

Psalm 9:1-2 I will praise thee O Lord, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvelous works. I will be glad and rejoice in thee; I will sing praise to they name, O thou most High. The month of November is associated with Thanksgiving when friends and family come together giving thanks to the Lord for His goodness that He has bestowed upon us each day of our lives.That being said, we offer praises unto a Holy God for His blessings and deliverance because all believers have been delivered from the clutches of sin through sacrificial death of His Son Jesus Christ who shed His precious blood atoning our sins. Our deliverance from sin is praise worthy. God is gracious and loving until He delivers us from the many unpleasant situations we find ourselves.We praise God for His deliverance when the enemy attacks shake us to our very core; He is there saying, don't worry my child; cast all your cares upon me and I will take care of them (1 Peter 5:7).We have many reasons in which to…Continue

Psalm 89:7 God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about Him. Our scripture text makes a profound statement as it relates to the assembling of the saints and what mindset all believers should have while looking forward to that great and glorious assembly in heaven with God. All believers are to honor God with a reverential fear recognizing Him for who He is and His sovereign powers.God is worthy of all glory and honor daily, and with the coming together of the saints in our local congregations to worship and glorify God; what a glorious time that is; then imagine the joyful time that will be when all God's children from every nation is gathered together in one place giving Him praise. There will be ongoing praise and worship services; even the angels in heaven bow before the King singing Hallelujah glory hallelujah to the Lord our Savior. That said, while here on earth let every heart sing praises unto the Lord God of…Continue

Matthew 4:19 And He said unto them; follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men The setting for today's topical discussion is during the beginning of Jesus' ministry when He was calling His disciples. The first two of Jesus' disciples were Peter and Andrew, two brothers who were fishermen by trade when Jesus summoned them to follow Him.These two men immediately left their fishing boats to follow Jesus; which brings to mind these questions, what would you and I had done when Jesus made such a request? Would there have been twenty questions or would we have said yes to Jesus?Jesus is still calling fishers of men in the form of pastors, evangelist, teachers, deacons, prophets, writers who write as God have given, and then there are the lay people who witness Christ wherever they go. All have a message of salvation to a dying world.As fishers of men, we as believers are shinning the light of God's glory, His righteousness while wearing His righteous garment of salvation. The church as a…Continue

Yes I Can
The day has just begun and it seems there's no way out,
As the alarm clock goes off I beg for more time before the point of no return
Every minute I have is already accounted for, with the feeling of loneliness and
Abandonment; I cry out hoping to be heard.
I'm single, married but alone in this race to…Continue
