No man is an Island || 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 future" - Jeremiah 29:11
Even if life isn't handing you your ideal picture of success right now, remember that God isn't done with you yet. It get's better. - Signed by Ny
“Look up into the heavens. Who created all the stars? He brings them out like an army, one after another, calling each by its name. Because of his great power and incomparable strength, not a single one is missing.” Isaiah 40:26
Have you listened to the latest messages preached by our prophet, Bishop Dag Heward Mills? Your life will surely never be the same again as you soak in these anointed words!
Something you will hear a lot when spreading the gospel “ you still believe the religion the white man gave your ancestors “ or you might here something like “ Christianity is the white mans religion “ so something I’m seeing and noticing here in the black community is that they are falling for the lies that Christianity was made to put black people in bondage. But if you look at the facts Africans were spreading Christianity in Africa way before the Atlantic slave trade. In fact for a while it was the dominant religion in Northern Africa But then Islamic conquest took over North Africa by force leaving few Dots of Christian communities and churches scattered around North Africa and the Horn of Africa. If it hadn’t been for these Islamic conquest Christianity would have reached Western Africa Not by force , not by Europeans , but by Africans themselves for the purpose of saving souls 💙 and spreading love. Today Africa has more Christians than North America does. In the year 2000 the Christian population of Africa was 380 million people. By 2025 the Christian population in Africa is expected to reach 600 million people ! 😱 So do research for yourself don’t believe what someone else tells you without researching yourself. Jesus came to save souls from all Nations and all races “And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

Recently I’ve fallen in love with the vice verses of NF. I relate to it on a heart level. I want to just hug him. It seems like I am a perpetual statistic that refuses to submit. In that sense I’m at odds with my entire world. I have been abused and bullied and neglected my whole life and my daily song is one of survival. I’m real. I am here to encourage you if you’ve ever been rejected by the modern Christian world, like me and many others, to not give up on God. Some songs weren’t meant to be sung from the pews. Some judgmental uptight hypocrites know nothing of the gospel but they pretend well. I don’t want you to be a statistic either. Your life is a song. Is it gonna be in tune or hard to listen to? The decisions you make and they way you love resonates vibrations of music through this world... what are you singing? When I get angry I listen to rap music. But I can’t dig Illuminati BS. NF is my go to rebellion right now. And it soothes my troubled soul, oh. so. good. Don’t give up on God. Give up on the world, find yourself in the truth of a song well sung, love others and keep fighting. For those of you in the trenches YOU KNOW. Those others ain’t been where we at; so dust your feet from their town and shake it off. You’ll find healing in the hurricane if you stop and look straight into the eye of the storm. You’ll know water deeper than any other soul out there if you just dive in. #dontgiveup#suicide#depression#church#christianity#hope#love#fight
“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.”
We deal with a lot of things in this world. Life is filled with ups and downs, sorrow and joy, but without the peace of God and thankfulness for what we do have, true happiness cannot be found. God is the only one that can help you through your life in a way that can save you and He is the only one that can give you a home in Heaven if you only obey His will.

Which voice are you listening to today? We pray that you’d have wisdom to hear the VOICE OF TRUTH! We must not listen to be enemy’s lies. We are not defeated. We are not failures. We are not unwanted.
You are a new creation in Christ.
You are loved & chosen.
His grace is sufficient.
Even during the lazy days of summer, it is important to recall our minds from time to time to lift our eyes to a greater horizon.
C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain
"The settled happiness and security which we all desire, God withholds from us by the very nature of the world: but joy, pleasure, and merriment He has scattered broadcast. We are never safe, but we have plenty of fun, and some ecstasy. It is not hard to see why. The security we crave would teach us to rest our hearts in this world and oppose an obstacle to our return to God: a few moments of happy love, a landscape, a symphony, a merry meeting with friends, a bathe or a football match, have no such tendency. Our Father refreshes us on the journey with some pleasant inns, but will not encourage us to mistake them for home.”
