But to the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever.

You rule with a scepter of justice. You love justice and hate evil. Therefore, O God, your God has anointed you, pouring out the oil of joy on you more than on anyone else.”

He also says to the Son, “In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundation of the earth and made the heavens with your hands. They will perish, but you remain forever.

They will wear out like old clothing. You will fold them up like a cloak and discard them like old clothing. But you are always the same; you will live forever.”
Hebrews 1:8-12

Many people all over the world are mourning the passing of the artist, AKA Prince. Personally, I hope he is in heaven, in the bosom of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Last night I watched one of the programs that profiled some of his life. He followed a principle I admire and that was if he had guests at his home, alcoholic beverages, smoking, cursing and cell phones were not allowed.

At the close of the program, they showed him making a comment that I liked. I might not have written what he said verbatim but here goes.

“Every night I pray. I don’t ask much. Then I thank Him.”

I don’t know anything about his spiritual affiliation but I was additionally touched by a song entitled, “THE CROSS” that he penned and set to music. And it follows:

THE CROSS
by Prince

Black day, stormy night
No love, no hope in sight
Don’t cry, he is coming
Don’t die without knowing the cross
Ghettos to the left of us
Flowers to the right
There’ll be bread for all of us
If we can just bear the cross

Sweet song of salvation
A pregnant mother sings
She lives in starvation
Her children need all that she brings

We all have our problems
Some big, some are small
Soon all of our problems
Will be taken by the cross

Black day, stormy night
No love, no hope in sight
Don’t cry for he is coming
Don’t die without knowing the cross

Ghettos to the left of us
Flowers to the right
There’ll be bread for all, y’all
If we can just, just bear the cross, yeah

We all have our problems
Some are big, some are small
Soon all of our problems, y’all
Will be taken by the cross

The cross
The cross

So I wonder if The Artist, AKA Prince just might be with the King. I think he would like it.

Thank you for writing me with your concerns about developing a relationship with God. I am happy that you are a new Christian and are confessing Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. When you have done so the Holy Spirit comes to live in you. He is your comforter, helper and teacher and so much more. If you don’t have one, you should invest in a bible. You mentioned that you have difficulty finding a church. If you know someone who attends a church where there is sound biblical teaching, you should visit with them. Not just a Sunday service, but visit the bible study sessions. This is where you will learn about the character and nature of the trinity — God, Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit. Scriptures will be explained to help you get a better understanding of how to apply the word of God to your daily life.

Learning and knowing the scriptures are a key to understanding that no matter what is going on in your life, God truly cares about you. He has an answer for everything, a solution for every problem, a blessing for every area of your life. Most of the time, our discouragement, hopelessness, sadness, loneliness is because we dwell too much on the unpleasantries of our past, and even present circumstances. This stifles our future. But God wants us to know and embrace right thinking. The scriptures says that we will have whatsoever we say. So we draw to ourselves or attract what we think and say about ourselves and our situations. I also suggest that you attend an intercessory prayer group that prays the word of God. Here you will learn how to pray and experience the presence of the Holy Spirit. He is that still small voice in your spirit who helps you make decisions, and gives you understanding about things when you ask.

If you want to learn how and what to pray, I include a link to my website that has prayer books to help you. All prayers are scripture-based and I provide a list of the scriptures that I used to create each prayer. Hopefully, they will give you a jump-start on having a prayer life that affirms the truth about what you might be experiencing. My inspirational book contains a few short stories where I share about some of my personal struggles. My past was a lot like yours, but now I have exceeding joy and freedom in my life.

For now I hope this helps you. Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions. I am not a bible scholar, but I share my Christian experience as best I can. It is because I want others to know about and trust the God I serve. He has helped me, healed me so many times, and blessed me, my children and grandchildren so much that I can never deny Him.

On the “Free Gifts” page of the website, are PDF versions of some of my other books. You can download (no strings attached). I just like to share to hopefully encourage others to trust and love God even more than I do. Bless you child of God and have a wonderful day. Don’t forget you have the Best Friend of all — the Holy Spirit of our God, Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. You will come to know Him as long as you desire to.

In His Love and Service, Christine

If you read the first chapter of Ephesians, you will notice how often the Apostle Paul makes use of the word blessed.

Blessed. It’s a word that people use in any number of ways with any number of different meanings.

The idea Paul wants to convey when he speaks of blessing and being blessed is one of having God’s favor over you.

That doesn’t necessarily mean instant and immense wealth. Sometimes it means walking through some dark valleys and difficult pathways through circumstances that are hard to understand but in the end yield a reward and ultimate glory for God.

I’m blessed.

I have God. I have Jesus. I have salvation that I can’t lose and a love that I don’t deserve. I have family and friends who continue to love me day in and day out and so many who model Jesus for me.

I woke up this morning…

One Sunday afternoon, I watched the Periscope of a pastor I had never seen before. Every word of his message was powerful and ministered to me greatly. It was just what I needed, when I needed it. From time to time, the person who was recording the scope panned the sanctuary. I noticed there were about nine people sitting in the first two pews. But the three pews in the back of the church were packed. And there were seven or eight rows of empty pews between the front and the back. I got so distracted by these empty pews that I decided it would be best to listen to the sermon and not watch it.

The presence of God was truly in that sanctuary. By the time the pastor was coming to the close of his message, everyone was standing and praising the Lord. And people came to the altar for prayer. I dare not reason why the physical distance in that particular congregation was so pronounced. But I think about those “back of the church” seats I occupied throughout my Christian walk. Here are a few reasons why I sat in the back:

— Before I accepted the Lord in my life and couldn’t say no to invitations from friends.
— So I could tip out at will for other appointments.
— To be seen clocking in and out.
— Whenever I yielded to sin, felt guilty and/or unworthy to be in the house of God.
— When I was bound with depression.
— Mad at God for not fixing my stuff on my schedule.

One time I sat so far in the back of the church that my seat was in my car in the parking lot. But the day came when I changed my mind about the need to occupy the back seat. I was a new Christian dealing with an emotional challenge and had skipped church for a few weeks. I was nursing and rehearsing that episode with a lack of faith. Then when I felt some conviction and decided to go to church, I sat on the last row, end seat. I figured I could tip out after I felt I had fulfilled my Christian duty and due diligence of “forsaking not the assembling with other believers.” But the presence of the Lord hung in the sanctuary long after praise and worship. So much so that I can’t even remember the pastor’s message. I experienced a constant, overwhelming joy and all I could do was weep and thank God for touching my heart. I couldn’t wait until there was an altar call to seal the deliverance.

Now I will sit in the last pew, last seat in the sanctuary if I HAVE to. But I like to sit as close to the altar as possible. I pray that in the future, the people in that Periscope, the members of that body of believers, will honor the shepherd of the house by sitting closer as he delivers the Word of the Lord to them. But I know that when the Spirit of the Lord is in the house of God, He fills every inch of the room. God won’t force you to receive Him, or praise and worship Him. People can purposefully sit in the back seat, last row, whatever, and put on a spiritual haz-mat suit if they want to. But when you are willing to receive from Him, He can touch and heal you of whatever, whenever and wherever you are.

“For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand.
I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God,
than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.”
Psalm 84:10
