Entering into our relationship, I was oblivious to the love you had prepared in advance to give me. Nonetheless, your living Word became life and because you first loved me, I will declare to all the world of my love for you. What can I say Lord? How can the words of a fallible mortal express how deep your love goes? (for your wife) I will do my best to put these words on paper.

More than ever, there is an agenda to bring confusion and chaos in people’s hearts and minds. Anything, any lie, any barrier, the enemy can erect for us to stay away from the truth, he will. His time is up and his only consolation is to see God’s children go down with him. One of the ways confusion flourishes is in calling what is good “evil” and what is evil “good”.
I decided to surrender my life to God on a new level. I chose to step out in faith and do something I believe He has called me to do. However, this year has been one of the hardest years of my life. I faced so many obstacles, struggling mentally and emotionally more than ever before. Going through this challenging season and accepting His call has put me on satan’s chopping block.
For three years I’ve been ministering the Gospel trying to convince so many people of how amazing they are. All the while, I would shy away from acknowledging how amazing Father God made me to be. In the back of my mind, I always believed it’d be too cocky of me to think of myself as a star. At 4:42 am on December 15th, I realized something phenomenal, and I have to share it. I am a
Last night as I was communing with My Father God, He gave me a revelation that was beyond anything I had ever received before. He told me that the key is LOVE. Love seems like such a simple word, but with God, it’s way more. He started to bring back the stories of Jesus, and how He healed the sick, cleansed the leper, raised the dead, and much more. Every single thing that Jesus did came from God’s power, and that power is love.
At this very moment, I can honestly say I am aware of how much God loves me. All my life God has spoken to me, but because I did not have His spirit in me, I could not understand what He was saying. The beautiful thing though is because of His grace; He never stopped speaking to me.
When you serve a living God like mine, there is never really a time when you’re not compelled to be thankful. Every moment is usually a moment where you will come to the Father with thanksgiving because of all that He is and all that He does. Our thankfulness is such a delight to Him. He inhabits the praises of His people. Imagine how most fathers feel when their 4-year-old tells them “You’re a good dad!”
Father, thank you for anointing us with the oil of gladness! You were glad when you set us apart from this world. You gave us joy unspeakable and full of glory. Jesus, thank you for being our joy which makes us strong and thank you for making us your joy which inspired you to endure the cross.
So many times when I heard of The Secret Place in the Bible, I felt as if it was a state of mind or a state of heart. I did not realize that this was a particular place that you go to, to pray to the Lord. One night, I experienced an intense dream where the Lord spoke to me saying: “You are far from My kingdom.” I woke up praying and asking Him to show me how to get closer because I knew that was something He wanted.
What is unconditional love? Well, we can start by defining what “condition” means. It is a requirement, term, or requisite. Conditions are rules or requirements that must be followed or fulfilled to receive what we want. We can, therefore, define “unconditional” as something that holds no rules, terms or requisites. Unconditional love is limitless. The one who loves unconditionally loves no matter what.
Just the other day, I was driving through town to the grocery store and said to myself, “Hmm, what if I die right now or Jesus comes right at this moment?” I pondered deeply on whether I would be ready or not, then I quickly reassured myself by saying, “Bev: Girl! You’re ready!”
Definition of Repentance – The action of repenting; sincere regret or remorse; to change one’s mind; to turn away.

Being patient is a lot easier than people may think it is. Most of the time it is simply mind over matter. There were so many times in my life where I would refuse to be patient, and the results would be worse than if I had just been patient.
As a born-again Christian that has surrendered their life to Jesus, you have a God-given advantage in life. So many people think that being a Christian is God’s way of chaining them down and removing their freedom.
On our recent trip to Chicago, I discovered what I call the “Shawshank Effect.” One night, while ministering, we experienced a breakthrough for which Edmee, with tears streaming down her face, said: “This is a ‘shawshank’!!!” The “Shawshank Effect” comes from the movie The Shawshank Redemption…
I have seen the power of prayer. It is real. When you pray a prayer that is not in the dominion of iniquity or the flesh, it indeed comes to pass. There was a time I would pray for something, and it seemed as if it would not get answered. It was as if praying was for nothing.
Once upon a time, I wanted love through a man. I have always thought that love through a man is what it was all about: merely companionship with the opposite sex. I figured he would be in love with me, and I would love him back. That would be how our “unconditional love” would work.
