We are being sent to dangerous environments! Are you prepared?!

Look, I am sending you out as sheep among wolves. So be as shrewd as snakes and harmless as doves.“ Matt 10:16

Wolves are natorious for preying on sheep. Wolves will hunt and eat a sheep. This gruesome message from Jesus isn’t something to take lightly. I am sending you to very dangerous situations. I am sending you to a situation where the people would like to devour you. Be as clever (shrewd) as snakes and harmless as dove. Be strategic. Be aware. Be sober of people and your surroundings.

 

Oh I am so thankful for the Bible. Every word provided in it is so  critical for our understanding and walking by faith.  The warnings and messages will serve as important treassures to live by, to be gaurded in, and to meditate on. It’s beautiful because the Lord not only thought of everything so we might have success as faithful children but God also provided the very tools so that we would have the ability to walk it out. The very best resource we have is the Holy Spirit that perfectly teaches us all things, warns us about all things, convicts us, leads us, and comforts us. The Holy Spirit is such an amazing resource.

The things that lurk for us in the darkness can be exposed. The advice is clear be as shrewd as a snake.

Be sharp, be smart, be wise and be clever. Be a sharp player on defense. Don’t lie and wait to be devoured. We have been given the resources to pass the test and to endure to the end. We can do this! How am I so confident?! Because my hope and Faith is in His Word. His precious words that haven’t been found to be a lie even today. We can do ALL things through Christ. It’s time to put on our Holy warrior equipment and endure.

We must be wise and be as harmless as doves remembering that though these evil spirits are operating through man at times we must remember who the enemy is. Every Human on this Earth has an opportunity to receive Jesus as their Lord and savior and the moment they do makes them our sibling. We must be harmless because this war isn’t against flesh and blood but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12

 

Are you prepared to fight? Are you aware you are in a war? Are you acknowledging that Jesus is sending us as sheep amongst wolves? Don’t be shocked when an attack comes (because it will come), be ready! We have no need to worry or fear any enemy because the Lion (Jesus) not only walks with us but lives in us.

Here I grow again

Nothing dirty bout my thirty. #Classy360 #360Months

526DAA47-3C96-4901-84C4-5B8A679BC9A9

I gracefully walked into my 30’s today #Jan28.

I purposely made my birthday activities to include Classy, relaxing and fun things. I went to the Symphony De la cirque with the Dallas symphony (pics in my gallery), Spa Castle, and Church then brunch at Grand Lux in Dallas, Texas.

I wanted to enter into my 30’s with a clean slate and nothing dirty about it. I wanted to walk in the finished product of the growth from my 20’s today NOT tomorrow. I had plenty of dirty in my 20’s and I refused to bring that in my 30’s. I am so very thankful for all the life lessons that my 20’s taught me. I was like a sponge in my 20’s and I believe it’s bc I had no idea what I was doing so I was trying to learn. 21 is when I rededicated my life to the Lord so I spent most of my 20’s following Jesus; The rest of the time I spent following others or doing my own thing (whether it was the right path or not).

I felt the molding of God’s hands in my life in my 20’s as I stumbled into adulting. I believe there’s adulting and then there’s adulting God’s way. My pastor Tim Ross of Embassy City Church shared with us ‘Our parent set us up to leave the house and become independent but God always wants us to be dépendant on Him.’ How amazing is that? God is a forever walk with us God. I don’t believe I would be the woman I am today if it wasn’t for God being intentional about walking with me.

6C874B80-FC77-4F4F-8577-6D867EBD8943

God stripped me, invested in me and molded me and I blossomed into someone I didn’t think I could become. I became a woman of faith. Of course my journey isn’t over but the plans I had for my life are definitely not being lived out today through me bc My God intervened, redirected and ordered my steps. Allowing God to wrought himself into me has been great pain and pleasure but I am beyond convinced it was/is worth it. I completely did a 360 because who I am today isn’t anywhere near the girl I was.

Side note: My birthday theme was called Classy 360 to remind myself I’m a classic and 360 is 30 Years Times 12 months. Also to symbolize the 360 full circle transition into my 30’s. 

I am in a different place all together where I have no clue to what’s ahead. I am literally walking by faith. I am not sure what the Lord has planned ahead but I do know it is to cause Christ to grow in me. I am extremely excited to continue this journey of walking with the King of kings. So no I don’t have the house, the spouse, kids, degree, career or car I planned for but I have God who knows the beginning and the end, who makes crooked paths straight, the Promise keeper and the perfect leader leading my life. I know I am right where God intended for me to be right smack dab in the middle of Irving, TX, USA, member of Embassy City Church, Pharmaceutical Patient care coordinator, riding public transportation,  and living with 10 to 12 maybe 13 room mates at any given time. So I may not be where I planned but I’m where I’m needed to grow. My life is being written by the perfect Author and I’m loving the chapters thus far.  I’m ready for my 30’s adventures and I am so excited that God has given me G R E A T friends to enjoy this journey with. I know one thing I’ll be doing and that is enjoying life with God and them. 🥂 To turning 30.

How to fight the enemy in these evil days?!

Do you have all the tools you need to be successful in a fight against the enemy in these evil days?! Loving God above all else and walking in the Spirit you spontaneously put on the Armour of God!

Ephesians 6:13-20 tells us how to fight against the enemy:

img_3246.png13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. (The Full Armor of God is needed for this fight, scratch everything YOU thought you needed. Your full attire and weapons aka armor is below)

14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, (Practice speaking God’s Word which is Truth and be found in Christ which is our righteousness) “For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “BUT THE RIGHTEOUS man SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.” Romans 1:17

15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. (Go into all the World and preach the Gospel to all creation (this includes Satan and the enemyMark 16:15 [Preach the gospel Your local grocery store, gas station, bus stop, school, work and on vacation])

16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. (Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God. Romans 10:17. Position yourself to hear the Word of God. Reading the Word and Hearing God speak is needed)

17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. (God’s salvation, His speaking and the Bible is needed for this war) If you don’t know Scriptures get some planted in you by memorizing them (it helps me if I sing them, any way you can remember them do it)

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. (The quickest way to get in the spirit is to say, “Lord Jesus” The Bible says that no one can say Jesus is Lord except for by the Holy Spirit 1 Corinthians 12:3 and “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.“) John 1:1

19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, (Pray)

20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should. (déclare the gospel boldly in the Lord Jesus)

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media. Or you can pray right now. Lord Jesus I believe you came into the World to die for my sins. 

The Bible says, “anyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved” Romans 10:13. Please share with a believer if this is your first time to pray that prayer! And please feel free to let me know by leaving a comment!

Why praising God is super important?!

 

IMG_3197

So the Lord has been completely wrecking my life in every way possible since Friday 6/30/2017.

I told the Lord that I wanted to experience the Lord in every way that He wants me to experience Him! I have no idea why when I have told some people this, they immediately say be careful for what you ask for! Maybe it’s because the of the story of Job in the Bible and all of the afflictions he experienced but he also experienced God’s deliverence and reward. But I do know that God has not given me a “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 1 Tim 1:7. So the enemy might creep in and try to give me fear about telling God that I want to experience him in every way that He wants me to experience Him! I believe that this is God’s will! So I’ll simply say Amen!

Recently, I started to get anxiety and  I believe I was led by the Lord to study the Bible by seeing who in the Bible can relate to my experiences and how they dealt with it so I brought to the testimony of “Saul where David played the lyre / harp for him when an evil spirit from God came upon him and the enemy came and tormented him and then Saul was refreshed and the evil spirit left him.” 1 Sam 16:23. I began to listen to  Be still by Steffany Frizzel and my nerves was calm. Now I also listen to classical music as well! It is soothing!

IMG_3174

Then that led me to believe that music has to have a wonderful use in the Kingdom of God, (seek first the Kingdom of God and its righteousness and the rest will be added to you.) Matt 16:33.

So I googled praise and I came up on this blog 7 reasons why singing matters and it really blessed my life. This blog provided some scriptures why praise / singing is important. Remember the Walls of Jericho? How did the walls come down?! By being obedient to God commands / instructions saying “circle the city of Jericho one time for 6 days and in the 7th day circle the city 7 times, on the seventh time the walls came tumbling down and when the 7 priest sound the trumpets and on the people shall shout!” Joshua 6:1-27. Music gets you ready for war and can be very tools you use for war!

My best friend was telling me how the Devil was basically the music director in Heaven before he was kicked out of heaven and that’s why the music industry is the way it is. She told me music enters our beings without permission! Look at the music you hear when you go into stores, or the music you listen to in your car, or the music you listen to at home. My BF told me that that’s why we can wake up with that same song in our mind! How great is this if we use music in the way God intended for music to be used. How terribly district I’ve if we use music in the way Satan is using because he only comes to steal from us, kill us, and destroy us. But “Jesus has come that we may have Life and life more abundantly” John 10:10.

I’m on a mission to enjoy the Lord in every way he has intended on me to enjoy Him and I believe one of the highest ways to enjoy Him is praise and worship and this is from my on personally experiences, “Let everything that has breath praise God” Psalm 150:6. This is a command not a suggestion. There is spiritual significances to praising! My Auntie told me recently that the enemy can get in when we pray but when we praise, depression leaves, anxiety leaves, the Devil flees, we become encouraged and empowered in praise. God likes praise! I think that’s the reason he commands it and it is something we actually spontaneously will do when see who He is! “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!” “I tell you,” he replied, “If they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” Luke 19: 38-40. Its something about God’s creation that feels compelled to praise. I believe God wants us to choose to praise Him! Deuteronomy 30:19-20 “For I have set before you Life and death and blessings and curse; therefore choose life that you and your seed may live!” I believe we can choose life even in the music we listen to.

My question is who/what are you praising?!

 

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media. Or you can pray right now. Lord Jesus I believe you came into the World to die for my sins.

Would you choose to be a living overcomer? By Sherry Thorpe

IMG_3132Oh the power in just this question. Someone in the Church life recently asked me at bible study, “If I asked the Lord to make me a living overcomer wouldn’t He make me a living overcomer!”

When he asked me the question, I couldn’t even answer the question. Because I knew that the Lord would make me a living overcomer.

Why did this question bring so much fear to me? Have you ever heard someone say, “Be careful what you ask for because you might just get.” I knew that if I said yes Lord make me an overcomer he would make me one. I knew that He would be faithful in doing this. Later while driving home, completely wrecked in a beautiful way the Lord exposed my unhealthy love for this World. My fear of losing it. This World has failed everyone that has touched it. And this World personally showed me it’s fallen and it has nothing for me.

The Lord said we must love Him more: 

IMG_3131

The Lord through dear Believers and God’s word showed me how this World is death and God is calling me out of this World into His marvelous light. All I needed to do is say yes! Once the Lord showed Me my love for the World and how my love for it leads me and has led me straight to destruction, that alone made it so easy for me to say, “Lord make me an overcomer!”

Once I did that the Lord began to show me how being an overcomer is something He intended for us all to be in His Son.  Not only was this God’s intention but it’s his desire. Let me show you where it says this in His Word.

These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 The Lord has overcome the World so it only makes since that we should overcome the World sense we are believers and have His life within us.

“‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches To him who overcomes, to him I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and a new name written on the stone which no one knows but he who receives it.‘” Rev 2:17

“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith. Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” 1 John 5:4-5 

Let us be glad and rejoice, and let us give honor to him. For the time has come for the wedding feast of the Lamb, and his bride has prepared herself.” Rev 19:7 The bride here is the overcomers/ Also the reality of the 5 bridesmaids who were prepared in Matt 25:1-13

Choosing to be a living overcomer today is different than just being a Believer of Jesus today in this age. The overcomer in this age aka age turner goes against the World in this age while choosing to be a living overcomer in this age. The believer who chooses to befriend the World will be perfected later in the next age. So eventually ALL believers will be overcomers! The living overcomer in this age made a decision to allow the Lord to make them an living overcomer of the World in every aspect of their life before the Lord returns. The living overcomer chose/chooses Jesus over the World in this age. The overcomer surrender(s)(ed) their life to the Lord Jesus and he helped them become an overcomer in this age, this can not be done in ourselves! To be an living overcomer in this age the Lord truly becomes our everything in this age. Eventually all believers will be overcomers after the next age!

The Church life plays such an important part in us becoming overcomers because their going on in the Lord serves as an empowerment and encouragement to keep us going on in the Lord. And we are One with them as the Bible tells us He who is joined to the Lord is one spirit. 1 Corinthians 6:17 May we practice the Oneness because this serves as a perfecting factor in our personal life. Being that the Lord wants to Build His Church the Oneness is crucial to being an overcomer as well! The perfecting process starts now! I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one–as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. John 17:21

Daily we can enjoy the Lord as our life. In enjoying the Lord as our Life, He becomes our life. In becoming our life we are being transformed. In being transformed in Christ we are constantly building God’s church because we are In Christ. In being transformed through Him we overcome this World daily and eventually totally. The moment we notice that we aren’t in Christ we should repent to restore the uninterrupted fellowship and flow with God and enjoyment of Life so we can continue growing in Christ and being built into Christ’s beautiful body aka the Church! One thing we should openly admit is we are not always in Christ. He is always in us but we are not always in Him. “… And may they be in us” John 17:21.  In knowing this it helps us to be aware to the fact we may not always be in Him and to check ourselves. This is something I’m learning myself but if you are ever in doubt just say Lord Jesus. “We can only say Jesus is Lord in the Holy Spirit” 1 Corinthians 12:3. Actually calling His name should be part of our daily activities. Calling His name turns our hearts and being to the Lord. This should be our daily practice being in Him. Being in Him we spontaneously overcome. Lol Enjoying the riches of Christ by being In Christ causes us to overcome this World. Letting Him be our ruler, by guiding us as we are respecting and loving Him as Lord. What a beautiful design! This is to overcome daily to be In Christ at all times! This is to be a living overcomer.

So would you choose to be a living overcomer?

“Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” 1 John 5:5

You are a target! By Sherry Thorpe

IMG_3087

So the Devil is hater! We know this right? We know that the Devil and his demons number 1 mission is to take us OUT! No matter the cost! He will lose his own demons to ensure he takes us out. You are his favorite target.

He will do whatever it takes to make sure you don’t reach Christ. And if you meet Christ, he will do what it takes to make sure you don’t spend time with God to get to know Him and His character. And if you do spend time with God, he’ll make sure you spend minimum to no time in the Bible, so you will never learn and become équipt to defeat The evil spirits. I’ve experienced the distractions so I know the Devil just doesn’t give up.

Satan has a plan for you. That plan is to try to kill you. If he can’t kill you then he will try to destroy you. If he doesn’t destroy you then he will try to steal everything God has for you. I heard a person recently say regarding racism in America that they feel like they have a target on their back and they were absolutely right. Satan wants to take you out. Jesus said this with His own lips in John 10:10 it says, “The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy you but I come, that you may have Life and life more abundantly.” It is so easy to think that our fight is against people in this World that do us wrong, the government and its officials or the people that are against God but the Bible is sure to let us know that THAT is definitely not the case, “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12.

The evil spirits we are fighting are équipt to lead us into temptation, to steal from us, to distract us, to keep us in sin, to keep us addicted to sinful things, to pervert us, to keep us from God, to keep us blind to the truth, to deceive us, to deafen us to God’s voice, to kill us, to enslave us, to overwork us and most importantly to defeat us. And they will do all of this and MUCH MORE. If we don’t equip ourselves with the Word of God and position ourselves in Christ, they will win. We choose. We get to choose our destiny. The Bible tells us that “God has set before you life and death, blessing and curse, therefore choose life that you and your seed may live. In loving Jehovah our God, by listening to His voice and holding fast to Him for He is our life and the length of our days.” Deuteronomy 30: 19-20.

Death and life are presented before us each day, blessing and curses are laid before us each day and WE choose daily which portion we will have for our life. Choosing Christ was not a One time decision. NO, we must choose Him every day-all day and choose Him above everything else. If we don’t choose Jesus who in the Bible is called the way, reality/truth, and life (John 14:6) then we are defaulted to choosing death and curses. There is no in between with God.

Now please don’t get discouraged choosing Christ as your life is easy when you are enjoying Him as your daily bread. When we are In Christ/In the Spirit we spontaneously choose the right path, the way, life, and blessings. So we shouldn’t have anxiety over this, NO we should just enjoy Jesus as our life and we will spontaneously be transformed, renewed, refreshed, and empowered to defeat the Devil and his demons. This is awesome sauce! In Christ WE WIN. Remember when Jesus said, “It is finished” on the cross? John 19:30. He defeated the Devil. All we have to do is position ourselves In Christ and we will overcome this World just Like Jesus has overcame the World. John 16:33.

Prayer (aka contacting God) helps in knowing which way to take. Fellowship with believers is important to our taking the right way. Loving Jesus is the way. Spending time with Him, getting to know Him through His word, listening to Him speak to you, and gathering and growing with believers is the way. These things keep us in the Light. These things keep us on the right path. So today will you choose whom you will serve?!

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media.

Dear Church, May We be perfectly in Spirit. – Sherry Thorpe

Dear Church,

I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.” 1 Corinthians 1:10 The only way to be perfectly united is to be In Christ/InTheSpirit. The Bible tells us, that “He who is joined to the Lord is one spirit.” 1 Corinthians 1:17.IMG_3044So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:26-28

Oh silly racism that is dividing the World, may it not enter the Church. May we keep the Oneness in Christ. May the Lord continue to renew our minds and build us up in one another. Last night a few of us had the opportunity to address racism in the  USA. It’s becoming quite ridiculous and although racism is very much alive in the World may it not become alive in the Church. Culturely we may be different, race we may be different in the physical sense but those that are in Christ are One in spirit. May we never forget this. May we be united in the Church and shine bright as the Sun so the World may see our oneness and praise Our Father who has. Given us the ability to be one.

May we not fake the oneness, may we truly be one in Spirit. May we practice oneness. I’m so very thankful for a ministry that continues to practice oneness and realize that we are not One in ourselves but only in Christ. A ministry that realizes that we must practice being in spirit by turning our hearts and entire being to the Lord. We are divided in ourselves you all and we must be totally disqusted with this so we may turn to Lord immediately when we realize we are not in the Lord. Remember we are being perfected and have not arrived at perfection so if division arrives within you REPENT, seek forgiveness. This Oneness is beautiful and sacred.

I remember this one time we had a meeting with believers in Houston and one of the believers said to me that she was deeply impressed by all of the different nationalities and ethnicities. But I will tell you that I was impressed that I met a people that had were One in spirit. I met a people that agreed on the basics in the Bible (John 3:16). Sure one might say oh I don’t eat meat and another might say Oh I eat meat and this is fine even the Bible says this in Romans 14:23 that we must do what we do according to faith.  But let us not be divided when it comes to the basics of the Bible that God so loved the World, loving our neighbor as we love our self (Mark 12:31) Loving God above all else, seeking first the kingdom of God and It’s righteousness (Matt 6:33) THESE are not up for to debate in the church.

The World will never know oneness. Sure the World will fake oneness or even agree on certain things or have some common ground. Some corporations try to make it look as if they are one team with one goal and this may be so for a while but surely their thoughts aren’t the same. BUT in Christ we are truly ONE even down to our thoughts we are One. Christ and God there was no separation as there should be no separation in ourselves. “On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.” Oh may we continue to come into the realization we are truly One in Him.❤️

Church, we must get in formation. Paul wrote to Churches regarding division because He wasn’t blind to the World’s condition but very aware that we are not of the World anymore because we are new creatures born of the spirit. Through faith in Christ may we practice Oneness and be quick to repent when any thought of divisions arises. The Bible tells us that, “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

Lord Jesus continue to make us One! Continue to be the head Lord reminding us of your Word. May we not be shaken but stand firmly in One spirit as a testimony to this World that “He who is joined to the Lord is one spirit”. May we enjoy you daily as our portion being washed clean from all evil and being built together as One body, your beautiful Bride the Church❤️ Amen.

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media.

Morning Devo- Best part of waking up is Jesus in my cup. By Sherry Thorpe

img_2999.jpg

Is Jesus in your cup? No! Not your physical cup of coffee. But your cup cup-You?

The Bible suggest that we are containers aka vessels that God can pour Himself in. “Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit..” Ephesians 5:18. In order to fill us with the Spirit we must be a vessel. In order to be filled we must be an open vessel. In order to be filled we must go to the coffee house aka which is God himself.

The Lord Himself waits for you to come to Him. Early in the AM He is waiting (all day He is waiting) for us to come to Him. Even Jesus met God early in the AM. “In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there.” Mark 1:35. #WWJD This is What Jesus Would Do.

Too many times We limit ourselves to what Jesus would do by caring for the poor, serving in Church, and being a generous giver but I want to encourage you to be a begging receiver. I heard a pastor refer to being a Christian is telling “one begger where to get the bread.” Being that Jesus himself called himself the Living Bread! John 6:35. WOW! Living Bread? I guess up until eating Jesus, my bread has been dead aka lifeless bread lol. We have the opportunity to drink living water and eat living bread. No more morning blues when YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO DRINK LIVING WATER. So be filled to the uttermost. “Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” John 7:38. Drink up my dear Friend!

Be ye thirsty! Don’t be selfish or shy fill up at God’s coffee house and go out into all the World and let the living waters flow. Let these living waters flow out through YOUR blog, through the ministry that God has given you, may it be your job, home, local grocery store/gas station, children’s school, gym. Oh did you think you only needed to be filled for yourself? No we are filled because we need to be filled AND the living water flows from within us and out into others. Have you ever felt that feeling of being drained? Yes?! You wanna know why you feel drained it’s because this dying World is sucking all of God’s goodness out of you. But don’t worry, remember I told you to be a begging receiver lol it’s BECAUSE we always need to be filled. Guess what? God’s coffee house NEVER closes! You can be replenished aka you can be filled again right where you are. God is YOUR very own personal coffee house. He is forever with you and if you feel like you are running low on living Water remember that He lives in you and you can just turn to the Lord and ask Him Lord please fill me? Fill your cup Lord. The Lord is faithful to fill you. Just simply say, “Lord Jesus” and you can be filled.

So this morning as you are getting dressed, while you are in the shower, while you are eating breakfast, while you are drinking your cup of coffee DRINK your TRUE coffee aka Jesus Christ! Let the Lord be your very supply for the day, everyday. At Lunch time enjoy Jesus as your living bread and at dinner eat Jesus again. Jesus should be our very portion ALL DAY long since he is our very source.

How do I drink Sherry? I’m glad you asked. You can sing to him a song, read the Bible, say Lord Jesus etc… By touching Jesus in these ways and whatever else way you choose to touch Jesus- THESE are examples of drinking Jesus, this is eating Him as the Living bread, this is the way to get filled, this is being supplied by God! Drink up my friends and remain a thirsty beggar! #Unashamed😌 Jesus will truly be the best part of waking up! #JesusInMyCup

Is Jesus in your cup this AM?

Morning Devo- We are the champions – By Sherry Thorpe

IMG_2936

Last night I had the opportunity to witness the Warriors vs Cavs game, and I must say it was a very interesting game. The last 2 games in the final are the only games I was truly tuned into. And I’m glad I watched those games!

Game 4 of the Finals: My observation as well as others observations the refs were clearly blind to many of the Cav’s faults, fouls, and back court errors lol. And yet the Warriors continued to give their all. Continued to behave as a team and support each other. Actually both teams did this. Well duh Sherry what are they suppose to do be against each other that’s not team work!

Side note: Are we supportive and cheering our brothers and sisters on In Christ? Are we cheering them on to continue their walk In Christ or are we calling them out when they foul. Sherry, Christians can’t foul.

Side note: Lets say a foul is when a Christian falls into sin, or says a scripture wrong or teaches something wrong, or says something wrong or writes something offensive on social media. Are they still our brothers/sisters in Christ? Shouldn’t we correct them In Love. How can the NBA created by men get this right but the Church, God’s prize possession, light of the world, get this wrong?

The endurance from the warriors despite their adversaries (the refs) continued to bring their all. I believe their very best was given in these games because they wanted a W. They wanted the title “Champs”. So much practice, blood, sweat, tears, pain, and much prayers went in to these games. I learned a lot In Christ from watching this game!

Dear Christians we already have the W aka Win. The Bible says, in Romans 8:37 “We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” Wow! And sometimes we go crazy because this scripture isn’t ringing in our ears. It’s like we or others fail and we forget mercy waits for us, forgiveness never runs out and love covers a multitude of sins. We forget that Christ is perfecting us and will never leave us or forsake us. How can we lose when God is on our side. “If God is for us than who can be against us?” Romans 8:31 The demons can’t beat us. Satan can not defeat us. As long as we are In Him, we will not lose and if we fail we should get back up in Christ! Turn to the Lord, seek forgiveness, offer repentance from a pure heart and “the Lord is just to forgive us.” 1 John 1:9 We should encourage our team mates In Christ aka In Love.

Side note: One time Ayesha prepared confetti in her hand and after a loss for the warriors, she threw the confetti up in the air as her husband Steph Curry walked by with his head down. Cheering her husband on not only cheered her husband up but those were around out a smile on his team mates faces as well. Fast forward to last night that loss probably wasn’t on his mind or his team mates. They may have lost the game that one night but they won the war! Can you relate this experience to your Christian Life. You may lose here and there, you may fail here and there BUT DONT GIVE UP. In Christ WE WIN! “Even when the bad stuff happens the Lord is able to turn it around to work for our good for those who love the Lord” Romans 8:28 Do you love the Lord? Than even the bad things work out for your good!

What would happen if the Church operated in Christ like they have been called to do? What if we cheered each other with God’s word like we’ve been called to do. What if we corrected each other in love because we know we are all team mates in the Church. Each of us have been called to expand the Kingdom of God by building God’s Church while allowing the Lord to flow in us and out to others. We have One calling. We have one goal. We WIN In Christ. Let’s behave like team mates on and off the court. No matter what local church you belong to, if you believe in Christ you are a member of Jesus body aka The Church!

If you are experiencing good sportsmanship in your local church kudos, continue to enjoy Jesus as life. If you are not experiencing good sportsmanship pray to God and ask him what must I do?

Just a reminder if you are In Christ YOU WIN! Hallelujah for the win!

If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media.

Morning Devo- Are there any side effects to being a Christian! By Sherry Thorpe

 

IMG_2837

I live in a country where if you’re sick and you take medicine you may get some crazy side effects. You might get healed in one area then in another area you need some more medicine to cope with the sickness you just received from the medicine you took. WHAT?! I just want to be cured with NO CRAZY SIDE EFFECTS. If I have a cold, I would like to take some cold medicine without experiencing dizziness or drowsiness lol.

So what’s the side effects of being a believer in Jesus Christ? Sorry, I have to break the news to you, but believing in Jesus comes with side effects! I’ve experienced the best side effects from believing in Jesus. One day I remember being tired, like really tired, like wanting to go and take a nap nap! I met with some girls I knew in high school and I was telling them my experiences about accepting Jesus as my Lord and Savior, and would you know that ALL of that tiredness went away, in fact I experienced a joyful strength of endurance.

Isaiah 40:31 “but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

I needed to be used in that very moment to tell friends about my Best Friend, Jesus Christ and He alone supplied me with strength (#noRedBull) and I ended up talking to them for hours about Christ lol nap nap time was irrelevant.

I remember facing situations, facing days like I CAN NOT GO ON. Ready for the Lord to take me out this game called life. Through fellowship with other believers, prayers, and time with the Lord I was strengthened. I felt empowered to go on. No pills for my depression and suicidal thoughts, Just Jesus.

DISCLAIMER: Please do not feel like I am advising anyone to stop taking any pills of any kind given from their Doctor; however I would like to encourage you to pray about pills you do place in your body and allow the Lord to lead you in what you should take.

Negative side effects are turned into a positive for those that are in Christ (Romans 8:28). Now Christ was a humble guy so if we are IN CHRIST we will be humble.  In Christ, we Christians are always displaying Christ. However we Christians are not always in Christ (this is different from Christ being in US, He never leaves us). When we are in ourself, we display ourself. Before the comments flow in, let me ask you this question are you perfect? No, we are not perfect (without sin)! If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.” 1 John 1:8. Christians are practicing being IN Christ and sometimes unconsciensly/ purposely we wander off from Christ but don’t worry the Lord has an awesome gps track system on us (Jesus in us) and He will come get us or he’ll send His workers to direct us back to Him❤️

I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate.” Romans 7:15

If you fail remember this, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 Simply confess your sins and the Lord is faithful and just to forgive you and cleanse you from sin(s). 1 John 1:9 AND then carry on with your life IN CHRIST!

So being a Christian has its side effects but trust and believe like State Farm we are in good hands!
