No Reason to Doubt

The promises of God may seem impossible to the human mind, but He is more than able!

As a missionary wife, there have been many things that I’ve determined were crazy dreams in my mind… but I’ve seen them come to pass! The Lord placed these on my heart: having a home in the United States; deep involvement in ministry all over Africa; sisterhood with the mother of my two son’s wives; unity and peace with my sisters… He made these my desires, yet I did not know when the hour would come. 

I had no doubt that these thing could only come If He Did Them.

Being honest, I think most of us children of God have experienced this. When we delight in His laws, He will put desires in our hearts that we should have. I believe He placed them there to remind us that He will carry out all that he has promised. His promises to his children are fulfilled as only he can! His Word reminds us that God doesn’t fail! I grew up hearing this song in churches: “He abides with me and gives us victory.” No, God Never Fails! Just keep the faith and never cease to pray…. No need to worry. No need to fear! ” There’s no reason to doubt it.

Father, I just Thank You sincerely for all that You placed in my heart and for the amazing ways you’ve brought Your promises to reality! Help me to use my testimony to encourage others to believe and never doubt. Hep me to use my testimony among the lost so that they will be found!

Black/African American History Month

As a Black Woman – an African American Woman – who has served as a full time missionary for the last 19 years… I must admit the history of people like me in the work of Global Missions touches my heart in ways that other history does not!

‘So go and make followers of all people in the world. Baptize them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach them to obey everything that I have told you to do. You can be sure that I will be with you always. I will continue with you until the end of time.”’ Matthew 28:19-20

There are not as many African Americans in Global Missions that should be in it … But The Number is Increasing!!! I praise God for that!!

‘But the Holy Spirit will come on you and give you power. You will be my witnesses. You will tell people everywhere about me—in Jerusalem, in the rest of Judea, in Samaria, and in every part of the world.” ‘ Acts 1:8

There are some of us that serve right now, I’ll try to highlight a few of them. But the ones that opened this door for us even at times when were not considered to be able or capable is eye opening and reminds us all that God calls all of His children … not by color or even by denomination … but by their belief in Christ and their true dependence upon Him.

‘He said to them, “Go everywhere in the world. Tell the Good News to everyone. ‘ Mark 16:15

‘Yes, “everyone who trusts in the Lord will be saved.” But before people can pray to the Lord for help, they must believe in him. And before they can believe in the Lord, they must hear about him. And for anyone to hear about the Lord, someone must tell them. ‘ Romans 10:13-14

Enjoy the readings this month!

Keep Calm and Endure


As the year draws to a close, many have had unimaginable challenges. We want 2021 to go away. Sadly, some could not wait for the new year and believed the enemy’s lie that death was their only escape. It might seem rough, but I promise that God has a word that will bring life.

We won’t understand the trials apart from His wisdom. 

Apart from the Holy Spirit, we do not have within us what it takes to comprehend God’s view of life. Therefore, when we are in trials, we desire to escape and not to endure! If we would pause and ask God to help us understand, God will gladly open our spiritual eyes and our hearts so that we will have the insight to stick it out. He will give us clarity as often as we need it if we ask.

There is a catch, though: when we ask Him for insight into His wisdom, we must be ready to receive what He says without a doubt, without selfish motives, without a mindset prepared to reject what He reveals. Sickness, death, pain, disappointment are sometimes a part of God’s plan! (Isaiah 45:7)

Suppose we don’t fully believe that God is loyal and all-powerful, no matter what He reveals His purpose to be. In that case, we will be driven by something other than confidence in God and reliance on the Holy Spirit. It is a difficult position to be in if we cannot accept God’s will because of our worries and uncertainties…

He doesn’t ask us to trust Him blindly – He only asks that we come to Him (and not lean on our own understanding) for our eyes to be opened! If we do not want life’s demands to dictate our actions and thoughts, we must purpose to ALWAYS accept God’s will. Knowing that in His faithfulness and strength, He will give us the knowledge to see life through His eyes and that He is trustworthy to work all things for our benefit and His glory. Very cool when you think about it …

The beauty of it — the thing that makes it marvelous for believers in God; in believers in Jesus Christ is the fact that we KNOW that all things work together for good for those of us who have affections for him and attention from Him – Romans 8:28. So Happy New Year!!  Endure!!

If you’re reading this and do not know the truth – I do pray that you will not start a new year in the same place ….

An Invitation to Believe in a Truth that is REAL

If you have never believed in Christ, let me just tell you for sure that there’s a beautiful life that you can have on this earth if you believe! Peace on the inside comes! Perseverance in difficulty comes! Freedom from any addiction comes! A true relationship with Almighty God comes! A life that never ends comes! If you want to receive Him, you’ve got to believe in Him.

  • We need salvation! We all have sinned and are not worthy of His presence and that sin will send us into true death, while belief in Christ will give us life that is eternal!
  • God gives us salvation! He sent the only son He has to a place of severe discipline, and this Son – whose name is Jesus – took the hit and paid to God what our sin caused us to owe. 
  • Receive what He has given! Believe in Jesus Christ, believe in the truth that He took the hit for all of your wrongdoing to bring you into the right relationship with God. Call His name and tell Him that you believe. 

If you truly believe I’m telling you that you will have peace in your heart that you cannot even explain. I’m telling you that you have now been reconciled to a good relationship with God – The Father, The Creator, The Almighty One.

If you’ve come to Christ as you read these words, connect with a group of people near you who are believers, profess your belief and be taught. Find a group near so that you can truly keep your connection real. Need help finding a place to know Him better? Click here to email us, we will gladly help you.

Our Just Due

God blesses.

He blesses because He is a good God.

Christians have fallen prey to the world’s message that He blesses us because we deserve some blessing – just because He owes us something. But … that is not the case. In fact that is a backwards statement as it relates to the Kingdom of God. We obey him because we love Him – because it is what we are supposed to do. He blesses us because He promised to do so when we love Him.

So — what is your just due?

Walking in the righteousness, blessing and favor of God requires our belief in, and devotion to, Him. If by being righteous we hope to earn something (blessing/favor) from Him — then it is not the right motive. If we are called to a particular task in the Body of Christ, we must do it out of devotion to and love for Him in order that He might grant us favor and blessing.

If we do it for a certain blessing and then receive that thing we’ve begged for, our wages have been paid. Now I don’t know about you, but I don’t want anything from Him because what I do if for the sake of His glory and because of true gratefulness for Calvary! What I do for the sake of His glory is because I know that I would not even be alive had it not been for Him! What I do for the sake of His glory is because I know that He is who meets every need in my life! So just think about it like this: How much more will we receive when we stop ‘working’ to earn His favor (adoration, affection, preference) and start ‘serving’ out of devotion to Him?

My prayer is that we will ask the Lord to correct our motives. Help our hearts to discern rightly what we are to do for God and for the Kingdom of God. Teach us to serve out of our gratitude for Calvary and out of our gratefulness that He has dressed us in His righteousness – clothing of splendor and honor that we could NEVER purchase on our own. Help us to understand that His very presence in our lives is our just due!
