When the Holy Spirit uses WE ARE MESSENGERS to lift you up (letter from April)

During the WE ARE MESSENGERS concert in Macon, GA a beautiful thing took place. In between sets something caught the eye of Darren Mulligan, the lead singer of We are Messengers. Darren walked over (climbing over seats people were sitting) to hug and pray for a young lady. There was a hush on the crowd and without knowing the details, I started praying for her as well. Minutes later, Darren got on stage and continued singing as if nothing happened.

On the way home, my daughter and I were talking about that moment and were in awe on how the Holy Spirit was in that concert. What was said by Darren to that young lady was to forever be a mystery.

That was until I received a comment on my post from the concert. Turns out the lady’s name is April and this is her story.

I will 150% agree with You! I was at this concert. As a matter of fact he came off stage and prayed for me! He told me I didn’t always have to be strong, that I could let go, that is was in the Lord’s hands! What he didn’t know was I had just lost my dad the previous week. The tickets were given to me just the day before by my office manager because she had something come up. GOD knew I needed to be there! Darren spoke to me with the sweetest Irish accent, and I felt as if Jesus had his arms wrapped around me! This experience was more than you will ever get from church! And I’m proud to have had my daughter and dear friend experience this with me. Later the next day I went Darren a message on Facebook asking why of all the people at this event, Why Me? He said the Holy Spirit pointed me out to him. I will NEVER forget this moment! Watching your video still bring me chills! Cant wait for you to post more!

I have to say this was one of the most awesome thing I have ever witness. I pray April that the moments with Darren gave you the peace and comfort that can only come from Christ. In Jesus Name. Amen. PJSLB

Feeling the pressure of tone for the first time

With my birthday yesterday, For the first time in my life, I am feeling the pressure of time and have the feeling that time is running out. What I mean is time here on earth for I know that my forever has already been guaranteed. It’s time to put myself in more positions to make effective changes for the Lord using his love. Worrying less about the opinions of man. PJSLB

Blessed with another year

As the clock hits 12:00 am, today is the day I was born into this earth on April 10 in Brooklyn, New York. My journey has taken me to Guam, The Philippines, New Jersey, and Georgia. In the now 39 years, I have traveled the world and seen the good and bad that this life has. I have very few friends but I have a loving family and more importantly, a loving God.

I thank you lord for EVERYTHING. I thank you for your love and your grace. I thank you the cross and the fulfillment of scriptures. I thank you for the Holy Spirit. I thank you for your patience. I thank you for the people in my life.

Chase not the praises of man but the heart of God. PJSLB

No matter what the future holds, my God reins over all now and forever.

Remember Jesus is in the boat with you

Mark 4:38-40

38 Jesus was inside the boat, sleeping with his head on a pillow. The followers went and woke him. They said, “Teacher, don’t you care about us? We are going to drown!”

39 Jesus stood up and gave a command to the wind and the water. He said, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind stopped, and the lake became calm.

40 He said to his followers, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

It’s been one of those days that i need to focus on Jesus being with me in trying times and not on people who are not around. PJSLB
