Christ Our Advocate - He Is Our Defense


                                                       I John 2:1

"Sistas, Wait On Him - God's Timing Is Everything and It's Always Best"

"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.

In The Mix - Blended Families Part 3

  “Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose.” Philippians 2:2
Good Morning Brothas and Sistas,
I must admit that when I looked at Part 1& 2 of “Blended Families” I had to giggle to myself, because I was thinking, Where was Minister Tony and Michelle with all this wisdom when I was making all the wrong decisions early on in my marriage?

Tea Anyone? Sistas, I Can Relate..... Can You Relate?

Tea Anyone?
In Response To: When You Must Make A Decision Pray For Faith and Wisdom
"Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.

God’s Word is Our Foundation

'' For if you wonder beyond the teaching of Christ, you will leave God behind; while If you are loyal to Christ's teachings, you will have God too "(2 John 9, TLB ).
Good Morning Friends of God,
Friend's we are so living in the last days. God has warned us against false prophets and false teachers all the way through the Bible, the word of God says they will come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves .

One - Lord Make Us One

“With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Ephesians 4: 2-6

One Night With The King - Sistas, It's All In The Delivery

Esther 2:15-21
Good morning my beautiful Sistas,
I hope that you are doing remarkably well on this amazing morning. We will be continuing with the story of Esther. It is one of the best love stories of the bible.Now let's get back to our romantic story from His written word. Let's see where did we leave off.

Fanning The Flames

"The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?" Proverbs 18:14 

Good morning Brothas and Sistas,

All around us people are hurting. To us their wounds appear to be invisible but for the one who has been wounded their wounds seem unbearable. People tend to mask their pain. There is a big difference between having a physical wound and having a spiritual or emotional wound. Spiritual and emotional wounds lie much deeper than physical/surface wounds.

Know That He Is.......

"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

In The Mix - Spousal Insecurities

Slow Jam

"Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken." - Ecclesiastes 4:12

Good morning Brothas and Sistas, 

This week we want to discuss strategies for dealing with spousal insecurities.
First let's start with praying with your spouse daily. Prayer creates an atmosphere of intimacy and transparency. The enemy often gets busy when he sees an opening. If you both purpose in your hearts to not allow anything or anyone to come in between your union, prayer is the glue that seals your union.

Tea Time With Tabby "Do We Only Go to The Father in Need or In Praise?"

Good Morning Sistas, 

Dear Sistas,

I hope and pray you are each drinking one of the Father's Brews that He created just for you; created to bless you and shower you with love, comfort, reassurance, or whatever it might be that you need right at this minute.

I was so blessed this past weekend to have a girls weekend with some very special friends and about 70,000 other girlfriends at the Woman of Faith Conference in Philadelphia. I have to tell you it is one of the most exciting, fun, tear jerking, influential, and confirming weekends of my life.

The Right Path

Good Morning 
Friends of God, ,

“The real work of prayer is to become silent and listen to the voice that says good things about me. To gently push aside and silence the many voices that question my goodness and to trust that I will hear the voice of blessing-- that demands real effort.” ― Henri J.M. Nouwen

Friends, let's always ask God to show us the right path. "O Lord, I give my life to you. No one who trusts in you will ever be disgraced, but disgrace comes to those who try to deceive others.

Follow Peace

"Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord." Hebrew 12:14

Good morning Kingdom Brothas and Sistas,

Peace is referred to as the absence of hostility. It is often difficult to remain in peace with ourselves let alone others. Quite often we do, think and say things to ourselves which create inner turmoil and threatens to rattle our inner peace. 

So how in the world do we maintain peace with ALL men when we can hardly maintain it with ourselves?

Words To Live By - The Faithfulness Of The Lord


"Because of the LORD'S great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fall. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness, I say to myself, The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him." Lam. 3:23 -24

"From the tiny birds of the air and from the fragile lilies of the field, we learn the same truth...God takes care of His own.... At just the right moment, He steps in and proves Himself as our faithful heavenly Father.

"He So Loves Us"

"That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God." Ephesians 3:17-19
Oh, how He loves you and me. Brothas and Sistas, we can hardly fathom His great love for us.

Have You Responded To Your Calling?

"Here I am , Lord send me." (Isaiah 6:8) 

"Then he said to them all: "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me." Luke 9:23

“When Christ calls a man, he bids him come and die.” ― Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship

Hello my Brothas and Sistas, 
I trust all is well and that you are living your life as a men and women of integrity, a loving husband or wife, and/or a caring father or mother.

In The Mix - Blended Families Part I

"Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with [them] according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered." I Peter 3:7

Good morning Brothas and Sistas, 

Let's continue with our series entitled, "In The Mix - Blended Families". One issue that is common among some blended families is spousal jealousy.

Tea Time with Tabby - Receiving A New Life Through Christ" "Surrender"

"Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me." Luke 9:23

The way your own Flesh manifested will reveal to you the particular "rights" you must relinquish or Surrender. This is what Jesus meant when He talked about denying one's self in Luke 9:23. (See also Matthew 16:24-26 and Galatians 5:24)

Good Morning Sistas and new friends,

I am so glad that God has brought us together this morning to share in the life changing realities that Christ intends for all of His children to receive.

Words To Live By - What's Your Assignment?

GM friends of God, 

"God has called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began." 2 Timothy 1:8-9 

Friends, I have two questions for you. What's your assignment? & Are we truly submissive to the Lord's assignment(s)? We find true peace and contentment when we submit to our Lord's will and way; when we submit to the assignments that He has for us.

Sistas, Don't Miss The Opportunity To Do Good"
"Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live; and so the Lord, the God of hosts, shall be with you as ye have spoken." Amos 5:14
Good morning Sistas,
Sistas, it’s not enough for us to avoid evil, but we must also seek "good" and this does not come by accident. This means we must be actively looking to do "good". Many times we may not be doing anything that is really wrong, but we must also learn that we have to activity look for ways to do "good".

The Light Of God's Love

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father." (Matt 5:16) 

GM Friends of God,

Friends, as I was reading the word I thought about what I was really reading. The title of the text was "Live In Love" Did you know we can really live in love no matter what we go through or how dark it gets? Psalm 112:4 says, "Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness; he is gracious and full of compassion.

Never Judge A Matter Before Time

"It’s best to stay in touch with both sides of an issue. A person who fears God deals responsibly with all of reality, not just a piece of it." Eccl.7:18 MSG 

Good morning Brothas and Sistas, 

Have you ever been around a person that refuses to hear both sides of the story before jumping to their own self perceived conclusion. It's typical for them to hear what they want to hear and run with it without filtering out the fact that there is not only one side to the story but there is in fact three sides to every story; my side, your side and then there is the truth.

What It Takes To Be A Godly Leader

"Moses told his father-in-law about everything the LORD had done to Pharaoh and the Egyptians for Israel's sake and about all the hardships they had met along the way and how the LORD had saved them." Exodus 18:8

Good morning Brothas and Sistas, 

To be an effective leader you must understand that you are in a place of influence where you can and will make a difference. Now when I talk about leaders, I'm not just talking about church but leadership on your job, in your home, business, etc.

Families.....In The Mix - Introduction

Slow jam

"Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered." I Peter 3:7

Good morning Brothas and Sistas, 

We will be starting a new series entitled, "In The Mix". In this series we will share biblical and practical information to help blended families.

Tea Time With Tabby - Should We Love Ourselves As Christ Loves Us

Good Morning Sistas,

I hope everyone had a chance to clean out their Tea Cupboards and make room for some new and amazing Brews that God has designed for you and you alone.

Today I feel led to talk about some of the pressures that society places on us, woman in particularly, even more so some that we place on ourselves.  Are we to drink of the brew of self love or as I prefer to a call this brew a little something different, The Brew of Loving myself as Christ loves me?

What's Your Oil?

Elisha replied to her, "How can I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?" "Your servant has nothing there at all," she said, "except a small jar of olive oil."  

Good Morning Saints,

It's amazing how our perspective of what we have within may not be as viable as another person's perspective. Those who are around us most often see what we don't see. Just as with the woman of Zarephath, not only did she not recognize what was already in her house, she minimized the anointing that was about to come forth from the oil that was already within her house; that which was already placed within her.

No Place For Jealousy In The Body

"Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another." Galatians 5:26
Good Morning,
Did you know that vain glory is at the root of jealousy among Christians. Jealousy is the common thread which can erode and eventually tear down Christian fellowship, bring churches to nought, do significant damage to the best relationships/friendship, and make siblings disassociate themselves with one another.

Moments of Reflection - Who Is Like Our God?


"The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth. The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory. Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods." Psalm 97:5-7 KJV

Good morning Sistas,
Sistas, He is the only one true and living God. We burn with undying passion like a candle whose wick never burns out in the presence of our God.

When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going

 "Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil because you are with me; your rod and your staff they comfort me." Psalm 23:4

"Do not be lazy. Run each day's race with all your might, so that at the end you will receive the victory wreath from God. Keep on running even when you have had a fall. The victory wreath is won by him who does not stay down, but always gets up again, grasps the banner of faith and keeps on running in the assurance that Jesus is Victor.

Come Out of Lo-Debar

Read II Samuel 9:1-13

"And David said, Is there yet any that is left of the house of Saul, that I may shew him kindness for Jonathan's sake?" II Samuel 9:1

Good morning Brothas and Sistas, 

One day while I was talking with a friend, he began to share some of the difficulties he was dealing with. While I was listening, I heard him mention some of the same problems over and over again. So I said to him,"Why don't you just start fresh with a new place.

"How To Say I Love You - Let Me Count The Ways"


Philippians 2:2"Complete my joy by beingof the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind."
Good morning to you both,
My Brothas and Sistas to say I love you to your spouse means more than just saying words. It requires action. In other words it requires doing and knowing. 
Now you may be saying to yourselves, "What do they mean show your love by

The Brew of Depression

Good Morning Sistas!  

I pray that since we last met and had a cup of God's Brew together you have found yourself sitting at the Father's side taking in all the glory, wonder and amazement that He has for each of us. 

Today Sistas, I feel led to share of a brew that is so prevalent in our world today and that is a brew that can be found in my Tea Cupboard. It's not a harsh brew, actually it starts very calming and relaxing. It's as if your sitting, sipping and have that feeling of a rainy Sunday afternoon and everyone is settled in the house.

Our Friend, Jesus Part II - What Kind of Friend Am I To Jesus?

GM Friends of God,

I asked yesterday if we were Friends of God. I know we all love to think of Jesus as our friend but friendship is a two-way street. Friends, we all need to ask ourselves and let's make it personal for each of us....''What kind of friend am I to Jesus?" 

If we are truly someone's friend, we are going to care for our relationship with them. We would also be mindful of things that could be hurtful or cause distance between us. Nothing caused Jesus more pain, Friends, than our sins when He was on the cross.

Our Friend, Jesus Part I

GM Friends of God,

"For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which is lost." Luke 19:10 

Friends, how do we respond to Jesus calling us His friend? Personal question..... "Are we really His friends?" Jesus has so many names and titles. The one I like the best is the one the Pharisees gave Him which is, Friend of Sinners. 

I believe it was one of His favorites too. Friends, that blows my mind! How about you? Jesus said that "He came to seek and save those who are lost.

Saints, Get Out of The Way

"For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?" Lk 14:28 "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach." James 1:5 

Good morning Brothas and Sistas, 

There are times when we are moved by compassion to help those that are in need. There are some of us who enjoy helping others. God has given each one of us awesome task to edify those around us.

The Art of Being Patient With Others

"Please Be Patient With Me
Gods Not Through With Me Yet"

"But he knoweth the way that I take; When he hath tried me, I shall come forth as pure gold." Job 23:10

Good Morning Saints, 
True freedom comes when you allow not only yourself to be who He created/destined you to be but when you allow others to be who God created/destined them to be. Many times our expectations of others are too high. When others are more in tune with pleasing us rather than pleasing God by being themselves it sets them up for failure.

Harken To His Voice

"The sacrifice God wants is a broken spirit. God you will not reject a heart that is broken and sorry for sin." Psalm 51:17 NCV

Good morning Brothas and Sistas,

Throughout the bible each man or woman God used had a heart that was responsive to hearing and obeying His voice. What I'm saying is we must be sensitive to His Spirit. I know sometimes we may think that it's our ability or talent that allows us to be used by Him, but Bothas and Sistas, that is not the case.

Whose Minding The Storehouse?
Old Skool

Now this is what the LORD Almighty says: “Give careful thought to your ways. You have planted much, but harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it.” Haggai 1:5
 Good morning Brothas and Sistas of the Most High, 

I pray you had a wonderful week thus far and are living wholeheartedly for the Master today.

Tea Time With Tabby - What Brew Do You Choose When the Bottom Falls Out?

Good Morning Sistas, 

What a great day to be alive; not just alive by human standards but knowing that you are "Alive In Christ!!" So let's everyone grab our Tea Cups and let the Lord fill them til they are pouring over with hope and faith especially when the bottom has from our perspective has fallen out.... Dear Sistas, I have to tell you this message today is as much a reminder for me as it may be a blessing to you. 

Last week my tea cup went from overflowing with blessing and opportunity to serve the least of these to, "How am I going to pay the mortgage and the bills, keep the fridge stocked, and keep my husband's tea cup from shattering?

Reputation Made God's Style

"But made himself of no reputation & took upon him the form of a servant & was made in the likeness of men:..For it is God which worketh in you both to will & to do of his good pleasure." Ph. 2:7,13

Good morning Brothas and Sistas,

In the Old Testament there are many scriptures that give reference to the importance of a persons reputation. Proverbs 22:1 says, "A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches and favor is better than silver or gold.

Healthy Fear vs. Unhealthy Fear Conclusion

GM Friends of God,

Moving forward friends....if there is still anyone with a sense of uneasiness or you are experiencing uncertainties about life and the future, the Lord offers encouragement  from His word. The Lord is mindful of us always, Friends. He says, "I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me.'' (John 10:14).

He also says, "For I know the plans I have for you ; declares the Lord; plans to prosper you, and not to harm you, plans to give you  hope and a furture.

Friends, How Do You Approach The Throne of God?

GM Friends of God,

How do you/we approach the throne of God? Sometimes Friends, we rush into heaven's throne room with a list. Though God's word encourages us to "come boldly to the throne of our gracious God" in Hebrews 4:1, there are moments when I wonder if we are a little too bold especially when our minds are filled with the things here on earth. 

Friends, I can only imagine what it looks like in heaven. Imagine the Father seated on the throne and ruling in glory, high and exalted.

His Counsel Never Fails

"Let all the earth fear the Lord : let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast. The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect. The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord ; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance." 

He Is Shaping Us For The Next Big Thing In Our Lives

"I know the plans I have for you." saith the Lord. "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Hello Brothas and Sistas,
This week I was looking at Jeremiah in reference to how God knows the plans to prosper me and not to harm me and the plans He has to give me hope and a future. Think about what God is saying here, Brothas and Sistas. As I have stated before God will use our circumstances in life to grow us up, to shape us, and to discipline us.

Wounds of Divorce Personal Testimony and Encouragement - Conclusion

GM Friends of God,

"Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that  your youth is renewed like the eagle's." (Psalm 103:2-5). 

Let's conclude with my testimony of encouragement for those of us that have gone through divorce.

Friends, my source of gaining strength was reading the bible and prayer.

Tea Time with Tabby

Good Morning Sistas, I missed you all last week and I pray that you each had an amazing time and fully drank from the Brew of Blessing from our Lord Jesus Christ.
Today I would like to focus on our choice in how we view our Tea Cups do we choose to see them overflowing with God's blessings or do we view them as half empty and a unfulfilled life.

Heart Change

"In this life you will have tribulations (trials), but be of good cheer: I have overcome the world." John 16:33 

Good morning, 

It is so true that so many times we are hit with trials from out of nowhere. This past weekend one of our family members was rushed to the hospital when he had been feeling just fine a few days before. We had made plans to do other things and trust me that pit stop to the ER and a hospitalization two days later was not on our agenda.

Healthy Fear vs. Unhealthy Fear Part III

Good Morning Friends of God,

Friends, we all need to learn to trust God implicitly for what we want to be and do. Proverbs 3:5, 6 says, ''Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths." You see Friends, trusting our own understanding without acknowledging God brings about fear, but when we trust Him, He makes our paths straight and there will be no fear In us. 

High Places

"Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength, & he will make my feet like hinds' feet, & he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments.

Allow Him to Open Your Eyes So That You May See

"Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water." Genesis 21:19 


Good morning Brothas and Sistas,
Brothas and Sistas, it's amazing that even in the midst of our desolate, weary, worn and parched places God will allow us to not only see but partake in the water that only He can provide. Sometimes trials make it difficult to look past our pain and take hold of or visualize the blessings that He has right in front of us once we get past our pain.
