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?

Are you in position? By Sherry Thorpe

IMG_2994

Have you heard the saying, “Dress for the position you want”? This saying refers to if you are going after a job, don’t dress for the position you believe you are qualified for or that entry level position; Dress for that position that you desire to have. I want to add be prepared for the position check out my view on the preparation aka process for the position we want.

For the longest time I felt left out of having a “dream”. I would dibble and dabble in this and that as a Christian and while still being in the Church life but I felt like the Lord Himself was not leading me in what I was intending to do for Him. I literally had the experience similar to the guys that was casting out demons in Jesus name but the Lord said, “départ from me I never knew you.” Matt 7:21-23. I felt like I was doing God’s work but He wasn’t leading me. Before we get super defensive and deep about “my feeling” I believe that we can jump too soon into where/what the Lord is calling us to do/be and complete the mission in ourselves rather than completing it in Him and that was my experience. The good thing is anything that benefits the Kingdom of God still builds the Kingdom no matter who does it. A non believer could talk about the Bible and a believer like myself could still be touched (I’ve had this experience). Anywho I wanted the Lord’s leading and support in whatever I do. The experience is just different and better in Him.

Hmmm who in the Bible could relate to doing things and not being led by God at first. MOSES!

Moses was raised with the best teaching. He wasn’t birth into the position to receive the best teaching and up bringing however he was divinely placed in the position to be raised by  Pharoh’s daughter. You can call Moses “education and upbringing” that he received in Pharoah’s kingdom “the best that money could buy.” However the Lord did not use the unprocessed, non transformed Moses to lead the Hebrews out of slavery did he? In fact Moses tried to jump to his calling by defending a Hebrew man by killing the oppressor. Hmmm but certainly this was not the Lord’s leading. So Moses ran. He ran away to hide but was placed into a position to be processed by God and transformed.

What I’ve noticed is that the Lord has stragically placed us in the families we are born in. The color of our skin and our gender, our gifts/talents, careers all purposely given by God. We ALL were “born for such a time as this” Esters 4:4. Moses was placed in the hands of Pharoah’s daughter to be taught by the best to stand against the best. With God’s leading the prossesed Moses was able to lead God’s people out of slavery and into the Promise Land.

What I’ve noticed is we all have gifts. We could be a Beyoncé or a Kim Walker. Both have gifts but one has been processed and humbled by God himself and the other well #nocomment! The process is beautiful! And the great thing is the Lord doesn’t take our gifts and store them away, NOOOOO he processes us, renews our mind, transforms us on the inside which is reflected on the outside. The gifts are returned to be used In Christ. This process can and will continue to happen only in Him. Please don’t think once you are operating in your calling that time with the Lord stops. Nooooo if you needed him before the process and during the process, you will certainly need Him after the process. In fact WE ARE STILL in the process as believers. Moses didn’t get to enter the Promise Land because the Lord had to still deal with him. Although Moses had been processed the transformation process was not complete. Perfection is the standard (Matt 5:48) so since we have not reached perfection common sense should tell us we better stay in the process. We should continue to put in intentional time with God so we can be ready when Jesus returns. We don’t want to be like the 5 foolish bridesmaids who weren’t prepared. We want complete access to the wedding and the feast, Don’t you? We want to hear, “Look the bride has made herself ready.” Rev 19:7.

The good thing about being in the process is it is quite simple, we should be seeking God and His Kingdom (Matt 6:33) and God himself will complete the good work he started in us. Phil 1:6. Hallelujah Jesus will complete the WORK!!! Yes I should be touching Christ and eating Him as my daily bread by reading His word, singing to Him, praying etc.. but this is so enjoyable. Even when the Lord shines His light on my icky, evil areas in myself, it’s good for me because it is perfecting me. It may hurt my feelings but it’s for my good. Constructive criticism is good isn’t it? How much more is it good for the Lord to shine His light on us so that we may be exposed of our icky parts so that we may depart from these things. THIS IS TRANSFORMATION. THIS IS THE PROCESS. And we should love it! We should enjoy it. Just enjoy God and the process. Enjoy that position He has placed you in. Enjoy that sucky job especially if the Lord has placed you there. Enjoy the place God has divinely placed you because He is totally preparing you for the position He is going to place you in. The best way to enjoy sucky situations is to BE IN CHRIST. It’s like being in paradise in a hellish situation. Being In Christ causes chaotic places to be calm, hellish places to be heaven, death to be life.

Position yourself in Christ while doing your work and spontaneously He will give you the desires of your heart. Spontaneously you will get that position, spontaneously you will end up exactly in the position the Lord promised you!

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- Perfect paradise By Sherry Thorpe

IMG_2501

I have been blessed with the opportunity to travel to some pretty amazing places and I’ve made the decision that My favorite created place to visit so far is Belize.

Belize is a country located in Central America and oh yea, it’s an English speaking country. The people are influenced by the carribean and Britain. Feel free to browse my other blogs about Belize. You Betta Belize it!

I love Belize because it’s so natural and authentic country! The food is fresh and the People aren’t trying to impress you with the things they own or the things that they posses that hides their true face. Those people are genuine, down to Earth, and super duper authentic. They seemed to be calmer, more relaxed, less stressed than people I usually meet in the USA. These people were transparent in their speaking and their actions. Silence only occurred when you took time to think or enjoy your surroundings. There’s so much Natural beauty around that it’s hard to ever forget the creator. I’m so surrounded by man made things here in the US that if I look away and get distracted I think more about the man/woman that created the thing rather than the Creator Himself.

Thats the created place on Earth that I love the most! However the best place that I have discovered  is in Christ. To me this is a physical place where I feel protected, all of my shame and failures are addressed and gone. All of my pain is comforted away. The Perfect One who knows me in and out, how I operate, and  what I need lives in Me. I have the opportunity every morning and throughout the day to choose to be in Him, In His presence, and conversing with Him. Jesus is my paradise on Earth.

I have tasted Jesus and I’ve felt alive so I can confess that He is the bread of Life and He is good for food like His word proclaims in John 6:35. I have tasted this Bread of Life and I can confirm that He is good. Since I’ve tasted and seen that God is good the choice that I have to make is do I want to be with Him forever. Does my living reflect this choice? Does my daily decisions reflect where I want to go?

It’s ok to fall, but it’s not ok to stay down. The Lord Himself will come and get us when we fall because He is the faithful Shepard but it’s our choice to get back up again. It’s ok to be in the process of being perfected and it’s ok for us nkt to practically perfect that’s what forgiveness and mercy is for. The Lord is merciful but His mercy is not to be abused or misused. Paul warns us in Romans 6:1-2 “What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?” Romans 8:37 We are to be more than conquerors through Christ who strengthens us to get back up and endure In Christ to the end. To the Lord returns to us. Failure will come because we still have our fallen flesh but we are to “submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7 We want to resist the Devil in order to be In paradise experiencing our wonderful Christ as Life. We have to remember that Christ is better than anything that this World has to offer us. He is our perfect place to travel to In the Spirit our very own Universe to travel to. It’s our escape zone, our safety net, our secret place, our healing factory, our renewing zone, and our transformation place.

So what should we do to remain IN CHRIST? Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness… Matt 6:33 (this is not to seek first “The American Dream” And guess what? When we seek Him first He ALONE gives us the desires of our heart. Psalm 37:4 Take delight in Him first and YOU WANT BE DISAPPOINTED. You can delight yourself In Him anywhere at work, at school, in the restroom, in the kitchen, at home, at a friend’s house etc.. The Lord has given us total access to Him wherever we are we can say Lord Jesus and enter into this Beautiful paradise!

Have you experienced the perfect paradise?

Morning Devo- I don’t feel like being a Christian anymore. By Sherry Thorpe

img_28791.jpg

Nothing is working. I haven’t changed. I can’t “feel” God anymore. Maybe He has left me because I’m too much of a sinner. I don’t want to be fake. I just want to live my life and be a good person, but I don’t want to be a Christian.

If you’ve accepted Christ in to you, you are a Christian and those feelings may or may not come. Feelings where it seems like everything is going wrong and you keep failing at things you are trying to do right! Hmm I wonder if anyone in the Bible can relate?

Paul begged the Lord 3 times to take “a suffering away” and the Lord simply replied with, “My Grace is enough, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Meaning you don’t need me to take “it” away from you, you just need my grace and it’s good to be weak and acknowledge it. When we admit we are weak, we allow the Lord to come in and His power is exposed in our Life. Indulge yourself in His grace- In the person of Christ and watch how those negative feelings will change. It’s something about being in the Person of Christ that takes us straight to paradise. This has been my experience! Regardless of the day I’ve had if I would simply turn my focus to Christ, the Lord is faithful to bless me with His peace and overwhelms me with His Love every single time.

When negative feelings like “I just want to throw the towel in” comes in to your mind, into your feelings just turn your focus completely to the Lord and watch how He strengthens you In Him.

” if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

We may not see it as wicked but it is wicked to not trust completely in the Lord. It’s wicked to not believe that He will do what He said He will do in His Word. So when these thoughts or feelings come in to our mind we need to fight back in Christ because Satan sure wants you to throw the towel in. Christ wants to empower YOU in Him to defeat the devil. He wants to show out in your Life but He needs cooperation from you. The Lord is a gentleman and He will do what He needs to do when He has our permission to do so. Crazy He is Lord and still waits for us to say, ” Take the wheel Lord!”

Being around believers who love the Lord helps soften your heart so it’s easier for you to turn to Him. I would encourage you to meet with local believers often whether it’s in a Church setting, small group or just a hangout. The Lord lives in and uses His believers too. So many times I felt like giving up and found myself around believers and those thoughts simply disappeared without me confessing to them my thoughts. Awesome right?

Just a small recap: The Lord will never leave you nor forsake you! – Hebrew 13:5 He will not fail us but He does require our cooperation first. Open up to the Lord, confess your sins and let the Lord heal your mind so He can empower you to walk In Him and defeat the devil who comes to steal from us, kill us and destroy us! But remember Jesus said, “I have come that YOU may have Life and Life more abundantly.” – John 10:10

Jesus is life! In the Bible (John 14:6) it says, ” I am the truth, the way, and the life.” So just open up to Life aka  Jesus and watch your perspective change. Turning our focus to the Jesus makes Him Lord over us and that situation. This is the cure❤️

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.

It’s National Best Friend Day! By Sherry Thorpe

IMG_2846

Today is National best friend day!

lets see what google has to say about “Best Friend”

img_2847.png

I’m blessed to have 2 best friends!

1 of my best friends lives in me. Nope not a baby, my Lord is my best friend.

He is truly my closest friend. I TELL HIM EVERYTHING. Regardless if it’s disgusting or pleasant I don’t with hold anything from Him. He knows everything anyways right? He is literally called Wonderful counselor in the Bible (Isaiah 1:9). So I vent to Him and he counsels me. God has the BEST advice and He knows the future so that’s super cool to get advice from someone that knows what is going to happen.

When I’m feeling down and I just want to be by myself, if He feels like I need to be alone he creates the opportunity, if not He’ll provide unwanted company that I end up not regretting in the end. The Lord is perfect at creating the perfect situation. He is great at everything and He wants to be my friend and YOURS TOO! Not many people can handle being my friend and I’m ok with that (I’m a work in progress). But God wants to be my closest friend. ” Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.” James 4:8 The more I came (drew) near to God the more He revealed Himself to me, the closer He drew to me.

The Lord in His complete transparency is constantly revealing Himself to me. I believe it’s because I’m thirsty for Truth and He is the Truth. Jesus said, “I am the truth, the way and the Life” John 14:6. I’m thirsty and in His word He says, “If anyone thirst come to Him and drink!” #ThatsMyBestFran

I have been blessed to have an Earthly best friend too. And we are totally opposite and I love it. A great balance❤️ She is young and hip and I’m a little older but clearly I’m not hip lol. Some reason the Lord has placed us in each other’s life and I know He made a great decision. This girl brings so much joy to my life and she teaches me life lessons in her caring action towards others. We converse about the Lord together and she keeps me up to date on new trends, lol I don’t google I ask my best friend. I love her! So friendship is good to have with Christ and people here on Earth. If you are a Christian I strongly encourage you to continue and maintain your friendship with Christ and other believers. I was without a Best Friend for a long time and that’s okay if that’s YOU, that just gives you more time to become acquainted with God❤️
