Be Imitators…

Greetings everyone,
Today was another #MarvelousMonday segment of “I Will NOT Be Silent.”

Although I didn’t have anything planned to say, God gave me a word, in the midst of….

This morning, the enemy tried to imitate my identity on Instagram, creating a duplicate page (of little old me) and sending scam messages to my contacts/”followers”!

But my God reigns every time. Last Friday (Oct. 23), despite me wanting to end the weekly family Scriptures (since only 1 or 2 people respond), the Lord had me to text the group this Word for this week:

John 10:10 (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.”

Father God was preparing me….

So, today, as the texts and phone calls came in from family & friends, realizing that it was NOT me sending the $50,000 scam messages, God gave me this Word:

Ephesians 5:1, “Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children.”

Then He took me to the Amplified Bible:

Therefore become imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well-beloved children [imitate their father]; and walk continually in love [that is, value one another—practice empathy and compassion, unselfishly seeking the best for others], just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and sacrifice to God [slain for you, so that it became] a sweet fragrance.

Let no one deceive you with empty arguments [that encourage you to sin], for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience [those who habitually sin]. So do not participate or even associate with them [in the rebelliousness of sin]. For once you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of Light [live as those who are native-born to the Light] (for the fruit [the effect, the result] of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth)10 trying to learn [by experience] what is pleasing to the Lord [and letting your lifestyles be examples of what is most acceptable to Him—your behavior expressing gratitude to God for your salvation]. 11 Do not participate in the worthless and unproductive deeds of darkness, but instead expose them [by exemplifying personal integrity, moral courage, and godly character]; 12 for it is disgraceful even to mention the things that such people practice in secret. 13 But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light [of God’s precepts], for it is light that makes everything visible. 14 For this reason He says,

Awake, sleeper,
And arise from the dead,
And Christ will shine [as dawn] upon you and give you light.”

AMEN & AMEN!!

I Will NOT Be Silent (Part I)

Greetings,

Wow! It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on this site, but today, October 19, 2020, is a new day!!! Bless God that I have something to say on this Marvelous Monday!

Yes, I received my new assignment last week, which was written out in my journal early Sunday morning (write the vision) and then confirmed at church yesterday…during praise & worship!

“YES LORD!!! “I Will NOT Be Silent! Whatever You tell me to say, I will speak it like I hear it. (Visit Facebook.com/FarMorGroupInc to watch video.)

The first of the multi-part series was taken from Ephesians 4:29 (KJV), “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.”

Based on a scenario that happened over the weekend regarding a Social Media post with language unbecoming of a loved one, I was reminded of how I used to speak as a young person. Yet, when “we” cursed back in the day, we had respect around our “elders,” and we definitely did not have the the foul language posted for the world to see.

That’s when the Lord commissioned me to share what thus says the Lord about the words that proceed out of our mouths.

The Amplified version of Ephesians 4:29 reads: “Do not let unwholesome [foul, profane, worthless, vulgar] words ever come out of your mouth, but only such speech as is good for building up others, according to the need and the occasion, so that it will be a blessing to those who hear [you speak].

The apostle Paul “warns us,” according to the New Living Translation Life Application Study Bible, “against unwholesome language, bitterness, improper use of anger, harsh words, slander, and bad attitudes toward others. Instead of acting that way, we should be forgiving, just as God has forgiving us.” Amen!!!

I challenge those who read this blog NOT to be silent in the things that we see! It’s time out for smh (‘shaking my head’…for those who may not know). See something say something! God is calling us to be holy and to live holy!

As for me, I have my assignment: “For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not keep still, until her righteousness shines like a bright light, her salvation like a blazing torch.” – Isaiah 62:1 (Berean Study Bible)

What’s yours?

Footprints

Greetings everyone,

On Sunday, August 27, 2000, I was sitting in the family room with my husband (at the time), watching TV and pulling out my braids. With two weeks before the expected delivery of our second child (first son), I planned to have my hair re-done for the special arrival in September.

What’s funny is, I had asked my OB-GYN if she could deliver the baby earlier, prior to Sept. 1 (because I wanted Malcolm to start school on time)!! Hilarious.

So that evening, I spoke to my older sister, Marva (who was being discharged from the same hospital I would be visiting two weeks later). She had just given birth on Friday, August 25 to her daughter, Jamera, who was delivered by the same OB-GYN (Dr. Norma Waite)! Wait! It gets better!!!

I don’t remember exactly how long after speaking to Marva, but guess what? My water broke that Sunday evening. Since my husband had missed the birth of our daughter (Note: Elia popped out four years prior before he could leave Tallahassee, at the time), this was his first rendezvous with me to the hospital.

When we arrived (with my ‘loose’ hair), we quickly learned that my son’s head was stuck in the birth canal and that an emergency C-section was required!!

However, my OB-GYN had recently gone home (to shower and rest) after discharging my sister. Now, she was being paged to return immediately to the hospital for me and my son (the one I requested for her to take early)!! LOL!

I should have known from then that Malcolm would not be your typical child. Oh my goodness. I went through some serious tests with this one right here but today, as he turned 20 years old, all I can say is, “BUT GOD”!

As I reflected, early this morning, about this 20-year journey (which included a divorce, foreclosure, repossession, etc. while building a publishing company, creating a 501c3 and accepting my call to ministry), I was reminded of the poem, “Footprints” a.k.a. “Footprints in the Sand.”

My testimony stems from this second part of the poem:

“Lord, You said that once I decided to follow You,
You would walk with me all the way;
But I have noticed that during the
most troublesome times in my life,
There is only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why in times when I
needed You the most, You should leave me.

The Lord replied, ‘My precious, precious
child. I love you, and I would never,
never leave You. During your times of
trial and suffering.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you.’ “

AMEN!!!

“Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ….”  – 2 Corinthians 2:14

It’s by God’s Grace

It’s a Thankful Thursday indeed!! Oh my goodness! Am I ever thankful to God for His #GRACE!!! YES LORD!

Last night, Aug. 5, 2020, I posted the picture I took at Emancipation Park in Kingston, Jamaica eight years ago. After posting the picture, I commented to my godmother, “It’s by God’s grace. All things through Christ Jesus” (as I vividly recalled the day of my younger sister’s wedding).

Then I returned to the document I was working on as I burned the midnight oil to complete a project for a client. Well, the Holy Spirit tugged at me to go back to the post and credit the artist, Trin-I-tee 5:7 (since those were NOT my words). Bless God.

So, I went online to find the correct spelling of the group and of course, I found myself with “God’s Grace” on repeat. Realizing the lyrics on the video were incorrect, I posted the correct text in the comments. However, the last line was wrong on all the song lyrics that I searched, and I had a hard time making it out (for years).

Anyhow, I found the 2011 remake with the correct lyrics (PRAISE GOD), and then played the song as least 10 more times. As I played it for the “last” time, I looked back at the photo from 9/29/12 (when I served as the Maid of Honor at Jasmine’s wedding) and tears welled up as I thought about God’s GRACE!!!

Eight years prior, the state of Florida experienced FOUR hurricanes: Charley and Frances (both Category 4) and Ivan and Jeanne (two of which did some serious damage to my first home).

During the third hurricane, I was in the hospital, giving birth to my third (and last) child, Tyler. I was there, by myself, feeling pain that caused me to scream like I’ve never screamed before. NOT only was the epidural not properly inserted in my back, but I felt EVERY contraction! JESUS!!!

Yet, the pain in my heart was greater. I had experienced a rough “BABY MAMA DRAMA” relationship that year in which I was the “BABY MAMA” (#transparency), and IF IT HAD NOT BEEN FOR GOD’S GRACE…HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR THE LORD WHO WAS ON MY SIDE, where would I be?

Even though I felt like I had failed my heavenly Father (no way God could still use me to bring forth my first book, Living Testimonies,) HE TURNED my mess into my message! YES HE DID! And four years later, He turned my misery into my ministry!! EXCUSE ME while I BLESS THE LORD!!!

Oh, MAGNIFY the LORD with me and let us EXALT HIS NAME TOGETHER”!!! (Psalm 34:3)

So that’s why I had to post the corrected lyrics for this part, in particular, to help free someone else:

“Come on in before the sun goes down,
Even though the devil's got you bound.
Know you're tired of going round and round,
Take the Word and knock him (Satan/the enemy) down.
(Abba Father)
He'll forgive you of your sins
Open up and let Him (JESUS) in.
Let the Lord show you His love,
By His blood, we're conquerors!!!

YES! It’s by God’s GRACE! All things through Christ Jesus!!!

“NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST YOU SHALL PROSPER!!!” (Isaiah 54:17)

STAND ON THE WORD!! The devil is defeated, in Jesus’ name!!! #RiseUp #JustBelieve #SOAR2020 #finishstrong #mygraceissufficient

Here’s the 2011 version I heard for the first time last night
