THE BLOOD

Twas a cold dark night
The stars like tiny eyes,
peeped through the clouds
Prior to this time,
The voice of his accusers
thundered in one accord
They rained mockery on him

The cloud whirled in scorn
as the grave thirsted for him
A hole was borne through his palm
pinning him to the tree of shame
His head wore thorns for crown
His sides broke from lashes

Meters above the land
Suspended between heaven and earth
Stood the sacrifice for my sins
From the weight of my crime
his head bled in pain
Water like streams gushed from his sides
Oh! how much he longed to cleanse us
He was tortured like a lamb
Blood deeper than scarlet
gushed from the fountain of his veins

The blood is not a "red substance"
It is the atonement for my sins
T wasn't the "secretion of a body"
It is my weapon of warfare
It is my purifier
presenting me faultless before my maker
The blood defies the law of sin and death
Having made me the righteousness of GOD
It is my shield of defense
When the enemy attacks

The efficiency of the blood
superceeds the comprehensive ability of the mind
It paid for me, brought me sonship and priesthood
The blood of Jesus speaks better things
Than the threats of darkness

HOW TO SPOT A GOOD MAN

Last night at Insure your marriage  online conference, I was privileged to teach on the subject, Good men are hard to find. Is that  true? Destroying the myths and lies that make women settle for less than God's best. This post is a copy of what I shared with them. I did a different post for a meaty part of the Q and A.  Check it out. Once you are done with this.  Let's Define God's best God's best in marriage is a spouse and a situation that sets you up for growth  in these areas 👉Spiritual 👉Financial 👉Emotional 👉Relational The term set up means it may not be in the "package" that you expect because it is first committed to helping you mature into God's picture of you,  than it is about making you feel fly. If you truly understand this, you will be delivered from these o n your marital journey,  ✅ Comparison  ✅Jealousy ✅ impatience/Haste ✅ Discouragement Please don't misunderstand me. I am not saying that your current psychologically sick b

WISE COUNSEL TO QUESTIONS SINGLES ASK - PART 1

The difference between being at peace in a relationship and having your heart troubled till you can't breathe is in the counsel you heed to. I've seen beautiful relationships even marriages crumble because  one or both of them listened to a "thus says the Lord, that's not your husband/wife".  While I believe that God leads us in the area of marriage, He doesn't expressly tell everyone who to marry. There are some people he told.  However, he has placed wisdom pillars on our path to help make the right decisions. The questions below are asked by real people I have  met on my ministry journey.  I will keep adding to it as I find the time to write here.  For now, I hope these ones would help hold the torch as you search the truth for your specific situation. Question 1   If you have someone coming to you for a relationship who takes alcohol like one or two bottles, doesn't get drunk on it and says he is a Christian. Can this person be classified as a good Chr

SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT

Social media has always been there; but not everyone paid close attention or saw the need to set up a profile for themselves or their businesses.   With COVID-19 radically obstructing the norm, more individuals and businesses have woken up to the necessity of having a social media profile.  I believe you have been woke for a very long time or perhaps you are just waking up. Either way, congratulations!!! Perhaps you got on board and  realised that it is not as easy as people make it seem.  You wonder how to successfully handle your social media pages to correctly represent your personality and opinion as an individual.  You have barely figured out how to use Facebook to successfully promote your business, only to hear people say Instagram is the best marketing platform and you are confused. You barely find time to post because your actual life or business routine is too full You hear about the many social media platforms- google+, Pinterest, Linkedin, Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, Perisco
