THREE SONGS THAT WILL BLESS YOUR SOUL

THREE SONGS THAT WILL BLESS YOUR SOUL

The first time I heard Evangelist Jimmy Swaggart’s songs was as a child in my father’s car; my father loved to listen to his album, “Some Golden Daybreak”.

I enjoyed hearing Evangelist Swaggart’s songs back then, but now, having lived and walked through and seen many other Believer’s live and walk through life’s vicissitudes, I can really appreciate and identify with the lyrics of many of them, and am truly blessed by the power and anointing upon them.

Yesterday I was listening to  a few of his songs on YouTube and decided to share three of them from his ministry.

I believe these songs will encourage you if you need reassurance that God is mindful of you and your situation, reassurance that He cares for you, and reassurance that no matter what you’ve done or are going through, His grace is sufficient for you so you can continue trusting Him through it all.

Be blessed.

NOTEWORTHY QUOTE 11

NOTEWORTHY QUOTE 11

"SELAH - PAUSE AND CALMLY THINK OF THAT"

“SELAH – PAUSE AND CALMLY THINK OF THAT”

 

From time-to-time, I like to post quotes that I view as noteworthy.

The following quote was written and posted on my church’s Whatsapp Group this morning, by Nardo Dean, who is the author of, “The Trilogy of Fitness: Bodyonix Bahamas”, and I’m sharing it with his permission.

“By being your true self, you take on the form of a unique shape that is a piece of the universal puzzle by Gods design. By trying to be who you’re not for whatever reason, your once unique puzzle piece shape becomes warped, therefore the other pieces that depended on you to be you so they can fit onto you…can’t fit. So in spite of it all, don’t be afraid to be yourself…we all need you to be you…. be encouraged.” ~ Nardo Dean

SELAH!

This year, let’s be our true, authentic selves.

Let’s be the unique individuals who God created us to be so that we fit seamlessly where and with whom we need to fit in God’s universal puzzle for His purposes and glory.

I dare you……

Kim

2017 THANK YOU

2017 THANK YOU

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

 

It’s 2017!

A brand new year is ahead of us!

For some, the thought of embarking on a new year brings feelings of excitement, hope, and anticipation……….for others, feelings of apathy, despair and fear.

As Kingdom Citizens, no matter our feelings about 2017,  we can rest in the fact that although it is a new year to us, it is not a new year to God, our Father, the Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omniscient, King of Heaven and Earth, so we can trust Him to lead and guide us through it……praise His Name!

I send a big “THANK YOU” to all followers and visitors of “Unwalled” around the globe; your support, comments, and words of encouragement during 2016 were very much appreciated. Thanks also for sharing my content via email, re-blogging, and the various social media platforms enabling, even more lives to be blessed.

Most of all, I thank God for His grace and faithfulness because, without Him, none of this would be possible.

It is my prayer that the Lord continues to use “Unwalled” to encourage, edify and inspire you and many others in 2017 and by His grace, I’m confident that He will.

Again, thank you for your support and may each of you have a healthy, happy, safe, intentional, and purpose-filled year.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord.“They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

(Jeremiah 29:11 – NLT)

God bless you,

Kim

TRUST GOD MORE THAN EVER IN 2017

TRUST GOD MORE THAN EVER IN 2017

"GET IN THE ZONE AND TRUST GOD"

“IT’S CRITICAL TO TRUST GOD IN 2017”

 

Happy New Year to all!

I did not intend to post anything today, but I feel impressed to share that this year, it is more important than ever before for us to trust God.

To trust Him, particularly concerning the following 5 areas:

1) The infallible truth of His Word…..

2) The unmatchable greatness of His power…..

3) The irrefutable goodness of His nature…..

4) His indisputable sovereignty, knowing He has the final say on all matters…….

5) His unchangeable love for you as His child…….

We have officially entered the unchartered waters of 2017 and we do not know what this year will bring, but we can make a decision today to trust God.

We can make a decision to trust Him and to show our trust by our obedience and submission to Him, and in our attitude and posture toward Him no matter what we face.

Will you make that decision today?

Will you say, Lord, by Your grace I will trust You this year?

Father, thank you for allowing us to see 2017. As we enter this new year, we declare our desire and decision to trust You and ask that You enable us to do it by Your grace, Your divine enabling power, in Jesus’ Name, amen.

 

“TRUST HIS HEART” – BY BABBIE MASON

 

“Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he’s the one who will keep you on track.”

(Proverbs 3:5,6 – The Message Bible)

 

“Those who trust in the LORD Are like Mount Zion, Which cannot be moved, but abides forever.”

(Psalms 125:1 – NKJV)

 

Be encouraged,

Kim

2016…..2017…..

2016 Gone

 

2016’s about to end…..

2017’s about to begin…..

the old is leaving…..

the new is coming…..

“this year” is becoming “last year”…..

“next year” is becoming “this year”…..

transitions……

changes…..

uncertainty…..

God remains the same….

trust Him!

 

He also says, “In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. 

They will perish, but you remain;
they will all wear out like a garment.

You will roll them up like a robe;
like a garment they will be changed.
But you remain the same,
and your years will never end.”

(Hebrews 1:10-12 – NIV)

Selah!

2016 MUSINGS & REFLECTIONS…..

2016 MUSINGS & REFLECTIONS

WHEN 2016 IS IVER

2016 IS ALMOST OVER

 

At the beginning of the year, I posted 10 totally random, but wise, musings that I felt would help you in 2016.

After reading them again this morning, I thought it would be good to re-post them for reflection and repositioning moving forward to 2017.

Be blessed!

 

HABITS

New Year + Old Habits = Same Results

New Year + New Habits = Different Results

What Will You Choose?

Selah!

 

GOALS

If you set out and fall down, fall back, or fall off, get up and start again.

Even if you have to start again 1000 times with the sound of mockers ringing in your ears, get up and start again.

Just do it!

Selah!

 

PEOPLE

When God wants to bless you, He will often send a person/persons into your life.

When the enemy wants to destroy you, he will often send a person/persons into your life.

Whether online or in person, be discerning of people who show up in your life and want to connect with you.

Ask God to show you the real deal.

Selah!

 

ATTACHMENTS & TIES

Be careful who and what you attach yourself to mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually, sexually, financially or socially, particularly when you are experiencing pain or adversity.

Attachments are easily made but not as easily broken.

This is because of soul ties, unseen yet very real ties whose power, and sometimes very existence, you will never know until its time to let someone or something go, or to give someone or something up.

Be careful who and what you attach yourself to this year.

Selah!

 

TIME

On what, where, when, how, and with whom you spend your time tells the true story of your priorities, your character, your life.

Spend your time wisely!

Selah!

 

SOCIAL MEDIA

Will you use social media this year, or will social media use you?

Selah!

 

LEADERSHIP

“Leadership is not a position that you occupy, but an influence that you exert”. – (Unknown)

This year, be mindful of your influence.

Lead well.

Selah!

 

OBEDIENCE

Will you obey and please God at the expense of people or obey and please people at the expense of God?

Though hard at times because of the backlash, retaliation, verbal assassination, and negative vibes and attitudes, the former is always better than the latter.

Selah!

 

REJECTION

There will be rejection.

Instead of as an enemy, see rejection as a gift.

It is often through rejection that we experience isolation, and through isolation, that we better hear the voice of God and have the opportunity to experience clarity, instruction and exponential growth.

Selah!

 

WORSHIP

The first mention of the word “worship” in the Bible is found in Genesis 22:5 concerning Abraham as he sought to obey God about sacrificing Isaac, his son of promise.

There is no mention of singing, shouting, dancing, music or instruments, but there is mention of an altar and the treasure of man’s heart being laid on it.

Worship is so much more than the expression of reverence and adoration to God with our lips; it is so much more than a “hallelujah”, a “Praise the Lord”, a shout, a dance or a bending of the knee.

At it’s highest, it is the expression of “worth-ship” to God by surrendering, sacrificing and offering up to Him that which He requires of us no matter what it costs or how much it hurts.

Worship is more so what we do with our lives at God’s request.

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.” – Romans 12:1 – NIV

Will you worship Him this year?

Selah!

 

Be encouraged, be blessed and move into the new year empowered by God’s grace and knowing that He has good plans for you!

 

“I KNOW THE PLANS I HAVE FOR YOU” –  MARTHA MUNIZZI

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord.“They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

(Jeremiah 29:11 – NLT)

 

Shalom,

Kim

“WHERE’S THE LINE TO SEE JESUS” – BECKY KELLEY

I first heard this song a few years ago and loved it.

It’s a thought-provoking reminder of the necessity to keep Christ at the center of our holiday festivities.

Listen and be blessed!

 

“WHERE’S THE LINE TO SEE JESUS” – BECKY KELLEY

“For a child is born to us,
 a son is given to us.
 The government will rest on his shoulders.
 And he will be called:
 Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
 Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

His government and its peace 
will never end.
 He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity.
 The passionate commitment of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies 
will make this happen!”

(Isaiah 9:6, 7 – NLT)

 

Merry Christmas to you and your household!

Peace & Blessings,

Kim

THIS CHRISTMAS – 2016

THIS CHRISTMAS – 2016

 

This Christmas

“MERRY CHRISTMAS”

 

When considering what to post as my Christmas message this year, I decided to re-post what I said in 2013 because my sentiments are truly the same, and even more-so considering the enemy’s increased warfare against Christ during this season.

Be inspired, be encouraged, be determined, and be blessed!

Kim

THIS CHRISTMAS

This Christmas,

each time you see a light, remember that Jesus is the light of the world.

This Christmas,

each time you see a gift, remember that God gave the greatest gift in sending His only begotten Son to earth so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.

This Christmas,

each time you see a Christmas tree, remember the price Jesus paid for your salvation by suffering and dying on the cross.

This Christmas

each time you see preparations made in commemoration and celebration of the first arrival of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, remember the importance of preparing yourself for His next arrival because He is coming again, not as a baby in a manger, but as a mighty, conquering King.

This Christmas

may you and your loved ones have a blessed, peaceful, safe, and Christ-filled, holiday.

Merry Christmas!

 

“For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”

(Isaiah 9:6-7 – NKJV)

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”

(John 3:16, 17 – NKJV)

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

(John 10:10 – NKJV)

Kim

THERE IS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL

THERE IS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL

Are you in a time of transition or transformation and have been in it so long that you feel like you’re in a long dark tunnel?

I received the following prophetic word by Elaine Tavolacci this morning via my subscription to her website, http://www.awordinseason.info. which I believe will be a timely word for you, and as such, am re-blogging it with her permission.

Be encouraged,

Kim

A WORD FOR YOU

GOD HAS NOT FORGOTTEN YOU

November 25, 2016

THERE IS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL

By Elaine Tavolacci

The Holy Spirit showed me a long dark tunnel. In the same way that you travel through a tunnel to go from one place to another, there are many believers in a time of transition. In the natural most people don’t like to drive through tunnels, especially if they don’t know the length of the tunnel. A tunnel could be dark and cold and seem endless. When you are in a tunnel you have a drastically narrowed field of vision and you are surrounded by walls. Many of you are in a time of transformation that you are unfamiliar with. It seems as if you have been moving forward but not experiencing victory in this cold dismal place. You have been there for so long that you have developed “tunnel vision” as your vision has become extremely narrow.

The Lord is saying to continue to go forward and don’t grow weary in well doing. His plan will begin to unfold as you diligently seek Him in this time of transition. It may be a challenging time and a difficult process, but don’t make the mistake of going back to the old door and opening it again if you know that God had closed it. When Jesus opens a door or makes a way for you, there will be no fear, neither will it be difficult or stressful.

For those of you who have been waiting on a word or promise from the Lord and you are not seeing it come to pass, don’t allow discouragement to take root. We are entering into a season of promises and destinies that are going to be fulfilled. Don’t give up or compromise in the eleventh hour. The greatest challenge is not what you went through in the past but it is the success of your future. Continue to pursue the vision that was promised to you. It will surely come to pass. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

Proverbs 4:18
“The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.”

Daniel 12:3
“Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.”

Galatians 6: 9
“And Let us not be Weary in well Doing: for In due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”

Philippians 3:12-14
“Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”

THOUGHTS OF THANKS ON THANKSGIVING DAY

THOUGHTS OF THANKS ON THANKSGIVING DAY

THANKFUL

“BE THANKFUL TODAY AND ALWAYS”

 

This Thanksgiving Day, again I thank God for many, many things.

Just off the cuff, I thank Him for life, health, strength, peace, joy, rest, salvation, His love, mercy, grace, forgiveness, provision, protection, Word, Spirit, Name, and Blood, my husband, children, mother, brother, family members, friends, pastors, the church, laughter, living in the Bahamas, my pets, ……..just to name a few.

But above all things, I thank God for being who He is to me, for our relationship, for drawing me unto Himself, for allowing me the privilege of being a part of His family through faith in Christ and because of this, having hope and a glorious future to look forward to in an ever darkening world.

Thank You Father!

Also, this Thanksgiving Day, just like the past Thanksgiving Days, I thank God for every mountain He’s brought me over and for every trial that He’s seen me through.

I thank Him for my experience of being sick because it was through sickness that I got to know Him as Jehovah Rapha, my healer.

I thank Him for encountering times of need because it was in those times that I got to know Him as Jehovah Jireh, my provider.

I thank Him for seasons of loneliness and unconnectedness because in this “empty place”, I got to know Him as Jehovah Shamma, the Lord who is present, the One who is always here.

I thank Him for the times when the enemy rose against me through persons, places and things because this is how I got to see Him fight on my behalf and know Him as Jehovah Sabaoth, the Lord of Hosts.

I thank Him for the people in my life who did me wrong and upon whom I sought no revenge because it allowed me to know Him as Jehovah Gmolah, the God of recompense, the One who repays.

I thank Him for encountering confusion, stress, turmoil and unrest because it was in those times that I got to know Him as Jehovah Shalom, my peace.

I thank Him for the situations where people in high places set out to disadvantage me in some way but He intervened in my favor showing who really rules and carries the clout thereby allowing me to know Him as El Elyon, the Most High God.

I thank Him for restraining me from going certain places I wanted to go and doing certain things I wanted to do because it enabled me to know Him as Jehovah M’Kaddesh, the Lord who sanctifies and sets apart.

I thank Him for the times I’ve failed Him and fallen into sin, exposing my inadequacies and my inability to do right in my own strength, allowing me to know Him as Jehovah Tsidkenu, my righteousness.

I thank Him for the times when I was lost and needed direction and spiritual insight because it allowed me to look to Him and get to know Him as Jehovah Roe, my Shepherd.

I thank Him for the “close scrapes” in my life because it was through them that I got to know Him as Jehovah, Nissi, my banner covering me, keeping me and preserving my life.

Thank You Father!
