NOTEWORTHY QUOTE 12

NOTEWORTHY QUOTE 12

 

"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 was sent to me via  Whatsapp this morning by Gino Maycock, my brother in Christ and the CEO/Owner of Colonial Realty Bahamas, and I’m sharing it with his permission.

“The Lord our God has shown me in a dream that worship has just moved to an all new level. If you want to worship the Lord it will now mean you have to stand for the Kingdom of heaven against the darkness of satan and risk life now. Risk job, fame, name, wealth, the possibility of losing all the non-heavenly that we have become so accustomed to along with life. Saints prepare yourselves for a new stand and a different type of worship. Blessed be the name of the Lord Jesus our Christ and King.” ~ Gino Maycock

SELAH!

When I received that message, it really resonated with me because the same thing has been in my spirit re the cost of living for Christ and of true worship in these last days.

The line between the Kingdom of Light and the kingdom of darkness is becoming increasingly distinct.  

As this happens, God is concurrently requiring His people to take more and more of a clear stand for Him and His Kingdom.

This stand, this bowing down of our lives to Him and His Kingdom purposes at the cost or potential cost of all else will be counted by Him as true worship for it will show His true worth-ship to us.

Selah!

What price are you prepared to pay?

What are you prepared to lose or risk losing?

Where, and in what is the true treasure of your heart?

May our hearts be willing and His grace empower us to take a stand and worship Him as He desires and indeed requires.

 

“Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”

(John 4:23-24 – NIV)

WHERE ARE YOUR POSTS?

TO EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON

 

Good morning all,

Yes, it’s been a while since I last posted.

For those who have inquired and those who may wonder, know that all is well.

As I’ve said on my “About Me” page, there’s no set schedule for my posts because while there are many things I can write and publish, I prefer to keep my spirit open to the Lord and flow, i.e., to see when and what He would have me write and publish.

A significant part of my silence is because I’m presently in a season of re-filling and re-defining more than outpouring, so as soon as this shifts and the Lord gives me something to say, I will post it.

Until then, keep the faith and be encouraged in the Lord.

 

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:..a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;”

(Ecclesiastes 3:1, 7b – KJV)

 

Peace & Blessings,

Kim

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.

“HE KNOWS MY NAME” – SUNG BY JIMMY SWAGGART MINISTRIES SINGERS

“NO ONE EVER CARED FOR ME LIKE JESUS” – SUNG BY EVANGELIST JIMMY SWAGGART

“THROUGH IT ALL” – SUNG BY EVANGELIST JIMMY SWAGGART

Be encouraged,

Kim

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…..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
