A Christian Hypocrite?

Dear Christians in the industry:

uptown_pharrell_williams_kim_burrellLet this be a lesson to you. You cannot mix light with darkness. You cannot mix the holy with the profane. You cannot be friends with the world and friends with God. The world is going to reject you if you’re WITH God, and God is going to reject you if you’re friends WITH the world.

Choose you this day whom ye will serve. Joshua 24:15

pharell-on-ellenKim Burrell, a well known Christian gospel singer, was scheduled to perform on the Ellen Degeneres Show with Pharrell Williams on January 5th 2017. Pharrel is a worldly rapper known for his major support of the LGBT community. Kim Burrell was also scheduled to perform at the BMI Gospel Music Awards January 14th 2017. BMI is not at all a Christian organization. They are of the world and friends with the world, not God. After a sermon that Kim preached surfaced on social media highlighting her saying “the perverted spirit of homosexuality,”  all of a sudden everything gets cancelled. Even her radio show “Bridging The Gap with Kim Burrell” on KTSU Radio Programming has been cancelled. Bottom line, she got booted for speaking against sin.

trailblazers2017Many Christians are applauding her for her bravery, but my question is this: why accept an invitation to the Ellen Degeneres Show in the first place, when you know your stance against sin and homosexuality? To get your name out there? To get a nice paycheck? Are you friends with the world? We can’t play both sides of the fence.

James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the ENEMY of God.

I don’t know about you, but I never want be God’s enemy. We Christians in the music industry have to be salt and light – and we must refuse to compromise with the world. Period. We represent Christ FIRST, and then we are a musician. That goes for any industry. Whatever you are in – sports, film, skateboarding, graphic design, medical, cosmetology, music, spoken word, choreography- first you are an ambassador of Jesus Christ. Everything else is secondary. Unless you use the opportunity to preach the gospel and call out sin, then there’s no reason to accept an invitation to an ungodly event – no matter how awesome the event is. Check your motives. Is this to bring glory to God or to your own name? Don’t allow pride to get in the way and don’t let others talk you into things that are against God’s word. God will hold you accountable my friend. 

If you know my story, then you know I was deep in the music industry recently. A few years ago I was advised by my manager, at the time, to perform at one of biggest LGBT parades in California. The goal was to gain Lady Rho fans in the LGBT community. Knowing that I stood against sin – ALL sin, not just homosexuality – I had to decline the offer. It would have been hypocritical of me to say “I’m a Christian and I’m against sin,” but then turn around and accept money, praise and fans from the LGBT community. That’s not right. And in my honest opinion, Kim Burrell did just that. She spoke out against sin and preached a sermon from a “Christian” viewpoint, but then turned around and accepted the invitation to perform on the Ellen Degeneres Show – Hollywood’s most prominent lesbian. Does that make sense? Kim is a hypocrite. And God is pulling her card. “Kim you want to be a Christian and you want to be friends with the world? Let’s see how you handle getting cancelled…”

Brethren, we are IN the world, not of it. Called OUT of the world, not friends with it. I pray you are not a hypocrite. Look what Jesus says in the book of Mark:

He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you HYPOCRITES, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.

 

With love,

Your sister in Christ

SPIRITUAL MUSIC

beyonce-devilI remember back in the day… when the old folks would say, “We don’t listen to So-and-So, cause they sing the devil’s music.”  Of course I thought that was their bold way of saying, I dislike So-and-So’s music. Then as I grew in the Lord I learned there actually IS such a thing as devil’s music and it’s much deeper than a specific genre. It’s a spirit. Most people think of devil music and they picture Black Sabbath, Marilyn Manson, Ozzy Osborne, Iron Maiden, AC/DC, etc. And for many years I used to think the same way.
.
.
 Of course I had to learn the hard way after diving head first into the music industry and discover…. the BEST SOUNDING music is not always “good” music. What defines “good” music anyway? Well that’s the thing. It’s different and it’s personal for each individual. To determine if there’s such a thing as “good” music, we’d have to separate how music SOUNDS from how music FEELS. Can we do that? No! Why? Because it’s spiritual.
One person might say a song sounds great while another might think it’s the worse music they’ve ever heard. When I listen to music, I can’t just listen to whether it sounds good or not. I observe how the song makes me feel emotionally. Happy, sad, empowered, calm, angry, uplifted, etc.
 .
 .
rihanna-drakeIt’s safe to say that every song, every musician, and every album has a spirit behind it. There’s the Holy Spirit, and then there’s evil spirits. Before I was born again, I would submerge myself into music that was led by evil spirits. And it didn’t bother me one bit, because I loved it. I loved the heavy bass, the drums – and how it put me in a state of focus and determination. Every song was high powered by the devil. So I was literally pumping music into my soul that was darkness, and not light. (This applies to TV, music, video games, as well!)
 .
 .

Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

 .

earmuffs
After the Lord Jesus Christ saved me and made me a brand new person, I stopped listening to that music and those singers/rappers. Why? Because their music no longer sound “good” to me. It was like the Lord changed my ears too! The music used to sound like sweet honey and now it sound like vomit. It used to make me feel like Superwoman and now it made me feel like I was being poisoned to death. I’m not making this up. Most secular music makes me nauseated. Should I give examples of devil music? I won’t. Because it’s a spirit. And the Holy Spirit has to CONVICT you of that evil music. Sure, I can tell you names. But those Red Flags have to come from within, otherwise you’ll be avoiding certain artists, instead of avoiding the evil spirit behind the music. I say this because, the devil doesn’t stick to Death Metal, Hard Rock, and Hip Hop. No way. The devil has his hands in Pop, R&B, Reggae, Latino, Christian Hip-Hop, Contemporary Christian, Gospel, Disney, etc…. The devil doesn’t care about genre. If the artist opens themself up to be used by Satan, then he’ll use them. Period. So if I give you a list of musicians to avoid, it’s pointless.
 .
 .
Abide in Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit will lead you and guide you into ALL truth. You don’t have to worry about avoiding So-and-So. The Holy Spirit will send you Red Flags – telling you to turn that mess off. It’s poison. Don’t listen to it. You won’t need a list. You have God dwelling in you!
 .
 .
I don’t know if any music is sung in Hell, and I don’t plan on finding out!
 .
 .

2 Corinthians 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

Here’s my story, when I was in the music industry… https://youtu.be/bnNqtP35D7A

Do-Overs

UndoCan a liar fix all the lies he ever told? No, but he can start by telling the truth. Can a thief return what was stolen? Only if it’s something tangible. What if it’s food? What if it’s someone’s virginity? What if it’s another person’s life? Can a fornicator repair all of the hearts of their previously sexual partners? No, but they start by keeping themselves pure until marriage. Can an adulterer erase their passionate affairs? Can they wipe away the emotional scars of infidelity? No, not even in a million years. Can a drug abuser undo all of the drugs they put into their system? Maybe, if they quit early enough, for good.

Should a person who has done these wicked things be given another chance? Should they get a “Do-over”? What if they continue to do it with no regret and every intention of doing it again and again? Should they be forgiven?

God is a gracious and forgiving God. But in order to be forgiven, first you must REPENT. The continual cycle of loving darkness rather than light must stop. Everyone sins. But REPENTANCE means you truly feel sorrowful, guilty and are TRULY ready to stop repeating the same sins over and over and over again. It’s a heart issue. Anyone can refrain from physically cheating on their spouse, but if you’re fantasizing about other people or watching pornography, then you’re still sinning within your heart.

 

Matthew 5:27-29 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

the-power-of-the-word-of-god-1-638The law doesn’t deal with the heart. Jesus came and dealt with our hearts. But it doesn’t stop there. Yes, repentance is part of it. But you must be born again. Can a man be born again? Can he re-enter his mother’s womb again and be born a second time? Jesus Christ said that you must be born again to enter the kingdom of heaven; meaning you must believe in Jesus, that He died on the cross for your sins and rose on the third day. Jesus Christ died in your place. Now the old man is passed away, behold all things become new…. new born…. born again. In Jesus Christ you are made new. The old you is crucified with Christ. You inherit a new life, new body, new spirit, a new heaven, a new earth, and eternal blessings from the Father. Crowns, mansions, and aaaaaaaall kinds of wonderful stuff He has in store for His children!

 

Jesus said:

John 3:16-19 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

 

Christianity is so much more than weekly church service. It’s more than a list of do’s and don’t do’s. It’s more than mission trips to other countries. It’s a brand new AWESOME life…. that you CANNOT even image…. until you are truly converted in Christ. But without Christ there are no 2nd, 3rd, or 40th chances. There are no do-overs. Those who do not believe in Jesus Christ are condemned already, meaning there destination is not heaven. There are only 2 paths. Narrow is the way that leads to life (Heaven) and FEW will find it. Broad is the way that leads to destruction (Hell) and MANY go in. Choose LIFE. Choose Jesus Christ.

 

Matthew 7:13-14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

 

P.S. If you’re not born again, or not sure if you’re born again, please watch this video.

If music is your life

music life soul death If your profession is music… or you love music, you study music, you dream music, you breathe music, write music, record music, are obsessed with being great in the music industry, spend 20+ hours a day doing music music music music… and then you say “Jesus is my life,” then Jesus is not your life.

 

If music is your # 1 focus and is the sole reason you grind and work so hard… then guess who your god is? It ain’t Jesus. #musicisyourgod #idolatry

FYI…

Music was my life (past-tense). Everything about me was music. And I was not ashamed of it either. I’d proclaim it from the rooftop. Music was my everything. Music was my life and the force behind my DRIVE to be successful. But music is NOT life. Music does not save. Don’t trust your ears and don’t trust your heart. Your heart is a fraud. Don’t let the devil and the beautiful enchanting sound of music charm you into a false sense of love and peace. Oftentimes music will put you in place (temporary place) of love, happiness or feeling calm. But it’s temporary and it’s fake just like DRUGS. Music was my drug and it was quickly leading me to HELL. But Jesus set me free from that addiction and showed me where permanent happiness (joy) is found. Joy is found only in Him. Peace is found only in Him. Eternal life is found only in Him. Jesus Christ is LIFE.

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

 

Watch my testimony here.

A  “Ride or Die” Chick

Some guys be like, “I needa ride or die chick.” Unless she’s riding and dying for Jesus, then she’s the wrong type of chick. Seek a woman after God’s own heart… not just a pretty face who attends church service and plays “holy” on Sunday, but she “hoe-ly” the rest of the week. Find a woman who’s aim is to be your wife for life, not your freak for a week. Stay away from women who are comfortable with being your live-in girlfriend or friend with benefits or just your baby mama. You need that type of God-fearing woman that will endure for the long haul, not the fearful type who throws in the towel when the money is funny.

No, you don’t deserve a virtuous woman of God. Why? Cause the Lord knows your dirty past and what you truly deserve… but He is a merciful God of second and third and forty thousand chances. Now that the old man is dead and you have been made alive in Christ Jesus, use wisdom to find that “good thing.”

Proverbs 18:22 Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord.

 

Kim K and her men

Beautiful Kim Kardashian

Beauty is a wonderful thing, but physical beauty eventually fades. And just because a woman is beautiful on the outside, doesn’t mean that she’s beautiful on the inside. Even if she’s beautiful forever and a day, her beauty is not what makes a good wife. This is where much prayer and discernment play a huge role in you finding a Godly wife. Pray that the Lord present to you a woman who has died to herself and is living for Christ. A woman who is good at taking care of the home and the children, not just taking care of the sheets. A responsible woman who understands how to prioritize her time, how to save money, and how to relieve stress from you by NOT causing you to overwork and overspend your money on unnecessary material things. A praying woman of God, who hears from the Lord and not the TV, soap operas, Oprah and gossiping family or friends. A woman who is quick to pray and seek the Lord when things get crazy, rather than going crazy and worrying to death when things get rough. A giving woman of compassion who loves and cares for others, not just herself. A submissive woman who will gladly yield to your leadership, and will respect and honor you as head of the home. A graceful woman who has a gentle and quiet spirit. A meek woman who is humble, peaceable and not nagging or contentious. A faithful woman who would rather study the word, spend time with the Lord and pray with you, than drink and party and hit the club. A virtuous woman who chooses to remain celibate until marriage, rather than an immoral woman who just wants to be cut buddies. A worthy woman whose beauty is not only seen with the physical eye, but seen with spiritual eyes. And lastly, a woman who adores your love for Jesus Christ not just your handsome physique. That type of woman? Yeah boo boo, go after her.

PREREQUISITE: Men, your life MUST be hidden in Christ! Read Colossians chapter 3. And remember to seek FIRST the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things (like a Godly wife) will be added to you. Otherwise… you won’t recognize that “good thing” when she comes along, or you will accidentally ruin her life because you weren’t ready.

Proverbs 31:10-31

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth theLord, she shall be praised.

Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

Friends With The World

I’m sure you’ve all heard by now that Lecrae (Christian rapper) has signed with Columbia Records, the same major label that 50 Cent, Adele, Pharrell, and Beyonce’ are signed to.

lecrae Columbia

Lecrae with Columbia Records

 

Over the past 5 years or so there’s been an explosion of male Christian rappers on the scene and most of them are extremely talented. They are – in their own words – rappers who just happen to be Christian, and love hip-hop and the art form rap. But what I’ve also noticed is that many of these Christian rappers have compromised or completely sold out, in exchange for earthly riches. Signing to Columbia Records is obviously a good chess move if your objective is to “reach” people and become rich and famous – but if your goal is to unapologetically preach TRUTH, the gospel of Jesus Christ, then Check Mate. You lose. Satan wins.

Jesus said: For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Matthew 16:26

(Wee bit about me: Music industry vet, music publishing company owner, degrees in Music Business and Vocal Performance, music instructor at 2 Hollywood schools, songwriter, singer, rapper)

 

Columbia_Records_logo.svg

Columbia logo looks like an eye

In regards to Columbia Records/Sony Music, they are one of the biggest SATANIC record labels in the world and they offer their artist the kingdoms of the world, in exchange for their music recordings (and their soul). Record Labels are a fancy word for BANK. They are the banks/puppet masters controlling these big music artists (pawns). Many people think that getting a major record deal is the best deal of a lifetime, not realizing the majority of Professional Recording Artists are  signing their name blood to Satan himself.

 

And the devil, taking Him up into an high mountain, shewed unto Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto Him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. Luke 4:5-6

 
lecrae wins grammyI’m not saying that Lecrae has made a deal with the devil, but I am saying that if you do start to see something dark going on with him – don’t say I didn’t warn you. Mainly because he rolled the dice and signed with a Satan-run record label. Maybe they signed him just to shelf him. (Doubt it.) Usually artists who get shelved (blocked) is because the label want to control and possibly diminish how and where they are being marketed, especially if they are posing a threat to the label’s main artist (revenue $$$ pawns). For them it’s all about the dollar. Period. Or maybe they signed Lecrae specifically so the devil could use him to influence the Church and the world simultaneously. Either way, signing with a major label is bad news for TRUE Christians. Now if he’s a fake Christian, then he got exactly what he wanted. Truth will come out soon enough. In my honest opinion, I think he’s a fake, cause Grammy Awards are generally reserved for servants of the devil. But don’t take my word for it.

 

Ezekiel 44:23 And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.

Music artists (singers/rappers/musicians) and even actors who want to be popular and successful in the industry have no choice but to compromise. They have to be friends with the world. Of course, on the surface it looks like they are “loving” and “accepting” of everyone, but what you’re actually seeing is that they are befriending the world. A Christian takes sides with the bible, regardless if you’re in the music or film industry. But what do you see? You see them supporting abortion and LGBT rights and all kinds of things that the bible is against. They’re backs are against the wall. They have no choice.

James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

 

MeAgainstTheWorld

Why do they have no choice? Because when you’re an artist/actor you are expected to give the fans what they want. You can’t really afford to be a rebel. You can make it appear as if you’re against the world (like Tupac), but in actuality you are just pretending for branding and marketing sake. The label is NOT GOING TO LET YOU mess up their money. Period.  You signed a contract to SELL RECORDS so they’re going to literally SELL YOU. Most artists put forth this certain persona so they can sell music. If an artist decides to rebel against the world (and against their label) and stand on the TRUTH of God’s word, then many people will begin to dislike you. Then the label is either going to drop you or get rid of you (in a bad way).  Most artists can’t afford to take those kinds of chances. Any artist who wants to be successful will need the love and support of the world, otherwise their music will not sell. You lose fans = you lose money = you lose your major label/bank

John 15:18-19 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

 

At the end of the day every Christian artist has to make a choice. Be friends with the world? and they’ll love you and your music. Or be hated by the world? and they’ll hate you and your music. Be friends with the world? and become rich and super successful. Be hated by the world? and never be successful. Hard decision, I guess.

1 John 2:15-17 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

 

Flesh vs Spirit

Ephesians 6:12

What’s a “Christian” artist like Lecrae to do? Let’s face it. He’s not going to just walk away from the deal he just signed. He’s going to have to roll with it. If Columbia/Sony tells Lecrae to perform at a concert where a false teacher is the main guest speaker, he’s going to have to roll with it. As a matter of fact, he’s doing exactly that. He’s performing at Together 2016, an ecumenical concert in July in Washington DC, led by the Pope. Sounds great, right? It’s an anti-Christ movement. Why would any Christian artist be part of this? Because the record label wants to boost his popularity – so long as the event looks “Christian” and positive, they’re going to make sure he’s on the Artist Line-up. Many Christians can’t discern between a fun anti-Christ “Christian-looking” event and a fun Christian event. Why? Because the church has merged (became friends) with the world.

 

I’ve made my choice. I’d rather be hated by the world and friends with God, than to be loved by the world and an enemy of God.

Not Just Any Bible

What’s the big deal with all these different bible versions? Surely the devil wouldn’t EVER dream of tampering with the word of God? Or….. would he? I use the King James Version, not because I’m old school and I just like old stuff (although I do love throw-back everything), but because the Lord has revealed to me that the devil has in-fact stuck his paws into the word of God. How, you ask? By introducing newer “modern” versions to subtly infiltrate millions of churches and homes. I used to be all for the updated bibles because I thought they only changed “thee” and “thou” in the King James. But after learning that every single “modern” version removes hundreds of words and several verses from the bible, and even change who Jesus Christ is – I said ENOUGH.

2 Corinthians 2:11

 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

So I went back to using the King James. If the only difference between the KJV and the “modern” version bibles were “thee,” “thou,” “doth,” and “hath” then I’d say no big deal, use whichever bible you like. But no, these changes are vast. To me, that sounds like slick Satan. It’s subtle changes, but there are many many many changes. And what Christian is okay with hundreds of changes in the bible? What Christian is okay with removing verses? How about changing Jesus Christ into a mere prophet? How about denying Jesus Christ as the Son of God? How about denying that Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh? No, I am not okay with those changes.

Revelation 22:18-19

For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

So that’s why I choose to use the archaic/outdated/too-hard-to-understand good ole’ King James Bible. And you should too. I pray the Lord reveals to the truth to you and I pray you change your mind. Here’s a few links that lay out many changes in the modern version bibles:

Trust in the LORD

Oftentimes, we look at our own lives and say, “Things will be much better when I (fill-in-the-blank)” and “Life will be so awesome after I….”  Yes, change is necessary at times, but sometimes we jump ahead and create all sorts of plans without asking, “Is this approved by You Lord?”My thought higher isaiah55 8

We grumble and complain and talk about how we need this n that, or we talk about what we need to do in order for life to run smoother. But what if life is not meant to run smoother for you? What if your course is to stay right where God has you? What if you are doing exactly what God created you to do? Even if your life seems so trivial and insignificant to you… what if your purpose is to be what you are right now? We women take for granted being a wife and mother or just being a Godly example for others. We think that we’d be on a higher level if we had a Master’s or Doctorate’s degree, made more money or owned a big beautiful house. Then we’d really be living. Money is not life. Having a magnificent home is not life. Jesus Christ is LIFE. There is no life outside of Jesus. There is only temporary life and false peace without Him. What people consider to be “living” is actually a dead end, according to the bible. Proverbs 16: 25 says “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

Living a full life does not consist of human achievements and earthly accomplishments. Living a full life consists of doing what the Lord sent you here to do. And you could be at the exact place where God has purposed you to be. You might be married to your spouse just so they can see the light of Jesus Christ and be saved one day. You might be here to raise up Godly children. You might be here to witness to that ONE lost soul at work. Or to that one lost soul in the streets or in prison. How do you know? You might be here to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with that one person who gets on your LAST nerve. How do you know?
Samson - JudgesDid you know the main reason that God created Samson was just to deliver Israel out from the Philistines? Yet Samson killed animals, people, had women, he got married, was imprisoned…. but his purpose was simply to deliver Israel. Samson didn’t have a clue why he was created, and neither do many of us. In the book of Proverbs chapter 3, verses 5 – 6, the bible tells us to “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” So instead of trying to add more earthly achievements to our list, because we “think” we should be doing more more more, let’s remember to trust the Lord. It may not be time to go to college yet. It might be time to raise your children. It may not be time to get a second job. It may be time to invest in loving your spouse. Or taking care of your elderly parents. It may not be time to relocate to another city. It might be time to minister to the people in the city you are in. Wait on the Lord. You might just be in that situation because the Lord has you right where He wants you.

Side note: If you know for a fact that the Lord is telling you to do something, GET TO IT! This blog is not to stop you from doing what the Lord has called you to do, but it’s a message for those of you who are thinking life is going the wrong direction – because you don’t seem successful (according to people). Trust the Lord and don’t trust in humans!

My thoughts on Christmas

Everywhere I go… it’s Santa Claus, elves, reindeer, wreaths, lights, pine trees, the Grinch and Frosty the snowman. This is what Christmas is really ALL about. It seems that it was never about Jesus Christ, and never will be.

Jesus was born around September. In the bible, His birth was celebrated only ONCE and that was on the very year that He was born. Not on His first birthday, not His 16th birthday, not His 20th birthday, not His big 3-0 birthday and not His 33rd birthday. They came with gifts for our Savior only that one night when Christ was born. He is not still a baby in a manger. JESUS CHRIST IS THE LORD.
