And I, if and when I am lifted up from the earth [on the cross], will draw and attract all men [Gentiles as well as Jews] to Myself. John 12:32 (AMP)
I'm a single Christian woman who has made up my mind that I am going on with Christ no matter what. I don't get a lot of dates with this mindset, but to me, it is important to date a Christian man who puts Christ first and practices celibacy. It seems that abstinence is not popular even among Christians even though the Bible calls it “sexual immorality.”
Galatians 5:19-21 tells, “Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” (See also Colossians 3:5)
The end of 2013 and the beginning of 2104 was the worst time in my life. After my only daughter, went home to be with the Lord on December 30th, 2013, the enemy showed that he is true to character. He slithered in like a strong flood from every side to attack me while I was at the weakest point I've ever been in. He wanted to destroy me, but once again he overlooked the fact that my Father is God and he underestimated the fact that my Father God is true to His Word and character as well. I was hurting. I was weak, and the enemy sought to destroy me. But God...
Not too long ago I got word that someone who is very dear to me was doing very bad. Strung out on drugs and living in an abandoned garage. As I heard this heartbreaking news, all I could think of was the prodigal son living in the hog pen.
I was reminded that the prodigal son came to himself and went home. I began to pray for my dear loved one, that he would come to himself and come home, back to Jesus who in no wise would cast him out but welcome him with open arms.
God never ceases to amaze with how He loves us. Needless to say I was having a tough time accepting Eboni's leaving. Although I know that she is with the Lord, I was missing my child and just being a mom I needed to know for myself that my baby was okay. God obliged my request and on March 15, 2014 God comforted and gave a dream of my daughter Eboni.
I am so happy that my baby girl is free! She is not suffering any more. Because He loves her just that much God brought her home to be with Him. A few days before she went home to be with the Lord, I was in the shower and God said, “I am bringing her home with Me.”
Hello Beloved, I would like to take just a moment and share with you my heart because I love you....
On Monday, Dec 30th. 2013 at 2 pm, my daughter, Pastor Eboni Davis completed her pilgrimage here on earth and transitioned back to her heavenly home. My precious Daughter, was a faithful Wife, devoted Mother, loving Sister, caring Aunt and Cousin and dear Friend is loved by many and will be missed by us all. No words can fully describe the true essence of Eboni's character, but I will share just a few.
I usually get up early in the morning to spend time with the Lord, His Word and my coffee. I really enjoy my mornings, so I generally go to bed early at night, so that I am refreshed when morning comes. It's funny because sometimes the conversation and word study get so good that I don't want to stop and begin my workday. During my quiet time this morning, the persecuted church was laid upon my heart.
Back in the first week of June, 2010 I posted a prayer request: Pray for America and Korea. On that morning when I arose I clearly remembered a dream I had during the night. In the dream I was praying regarding some situations I was facing. At that time I was in desperate need of a financial breakthrough and was about to lose my car and shelter. In the dream I looked off to my far right and there were Angels of God working and doing things on my behalf, working out the situation I was praying about. As I watched them a man came out from among them, he was not an angel of God, but he came out from the midst of them. He had his head down but he looked tired and beaten. As he walked toward me I could see that his man was President Kim Jong-il of North Korea. He walked past me and lifted his and sadly said “it is done”.
God promises that He will watch over His Word to ensure that it happens, which is why I am a firm believer that praying and speaking the Word of God over our unsaved loved ones, and those who have strayed away from God, believing and knowing that God’s Word will be fulfilled in their lives is the best thing we can do for them. I talk about this in the book “Put The Word In Your Mouth”.
Journal entry: Monday, December 6, 2009....
Last night I dreamed of a couple of people I know. It was as if I was off in a distance watching several incidents take place. I watched as a friend of mine who works at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta arrive at work. When she got to entrance she was told by the security guard that the bank was shut down for good. Money are we knew it was gone. The people around were all shocked and talking about their jobs, the economy and what was everyone going to do.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” - John 10:10
I went through something this week and even though I was okay with the outcome, I was deeply hurt. I felt like several years of my precious life had been wasted. I felt like a failure and a fool, and I was angry. I was now in a city alone. I was shocked and afraid. I sat for hours at my desk crying and wondering what to do. I was 250 miles away from family in Miami and almost 500 miles away from family in Atlanta. I knew I had to get rid of what I was feeling, so I took all those emotions and feelings to the Throne of Grace.
