My Chains Are Gone!!!


One of my favorite contemporary Christian musicians is Chris Tomlin. He has a voice that is so pure. When he worships, it takes my spirit to another level. 

My favorite songs by Chris is entitled, “Amazing Grace, My Chains Are Gone.” The scripture to support God’s grace releasing us from our chains can be found in Psalm 107. 

Psalm 107:1-14 

Contemporary English Version (CEV)

The Lord Is Good to His People

107 Shout praises to the Lord!
    He is good to us,
    and his love never fails.
Everyone the Lord has rescued
from trouble
    should praise him,
everyone he has brought
from the east and the west,
    the north and the south.[a]

Some of you were lost
in the scorching desert,
    far from a town.
You were hungry and thirsty
    and about to give up.
You were in serious trouble,
    but you prayed to the Lord,
    and he rescued you.
Right away he brought you
    to a town.
You should praise the Lord
    for his love
    and for the wonderful things
    he does for all of us.
To everyone who is thirsty,
    he gives something to drink;
to everyone who is hungry,
    he gives good things to eat.

10 Some of you were prisoners
    suffering in deepest darkness
    and bound by chains,
11 because you had rebelled
against God Most High
    and refused his advice.
12 You were worn out
from working like slaves,
    and no one came to help.
13 You were in serious trouble,
    but you prayed to the Lord,
    and he rescued you.
14 He brought you out
of the deepest darkness
    and broke your chains.

Enjoy this song this morning, as you read the devotional for today. May it bless you and take you to a higher place. 

I love you with an amazing and everlasting love.

Marvelous Monday…


Luke 12:27-31

Contemporary English Version (CEV)

27 Look how the wild flowers grow! They don’t work hard to make their clothes. But I tell you that Solomon with all his wealth wasn’t as well clothed as one of these flowers. 28 God gives such beauty to everything that grows in the fields, even though it is here today and thrown into a fire tomorrow. Won’t he do even more for you? You have such little faith!

29 Don’t keep worrying about having something to eat or drink. 30 Only people who don’t know God are always worrying about such things. Your Father knows what you need. 31 But put God’s work first, and these things will be yours as well.

God is our source and a strength. Everything that we need begins and ends with God. Cast your cares onto God. Free your hands from worries and use them instead to praise and magnify God.

Seek first and put the Kingdom of God at the top of your list. Everything else you desire, as long as it lines up with the will of God, will be given to you as well.

It’s already alright.

Go in peace, while serving the Lord.

I love you with an amazing and everlasting love.

One Body, Many Parts…

1 corinthians 12 12-14

Good morning, Beautiful Lights of God:

Today, tomorrow, and every day to come, I want you all to be proud and bold, in Christ. You are shinning bright, with the calling and giftings that God has placed in and on your life. 

God did not give us all the same calling or gifts. No gift is less or greater than the other. Perfect, make perfect, the gift and calling that God has placed in your care. Work in unison with other members of the body of Christ. 

The Apostle Paul, in letter to the Corinthians, explains how the body of Christ is to work together in unison rather than competition. Paul explains that we are all operating under the anointing of same Holy Spirit. 

1 Corinthians 12:4-14 

Contemporary English Version (CEV)

There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but they all come from the same Spirit. There are different ways to serve the same Lord, and we can each do different things. Yet the same God works in all of us and helps us in everything we do.

The Spirit has given each of us a special way of serving others. Some of us can speak with wisdom, while others can speak with knowledge, but these gifts come from the same Spirit. To others the Spirit has given great faith or the power to heal the sick 10 or the power to work mighty miracles. Some of us are prophets, and some of us recognize when God’s Spirit is present.  Others can speak different kinds of languages, and still others can tell what these languages mean. 11 But it is the Spirit who does all this and decides which gifts to give to each of us.

One Body with Many Parts

12 The body of Christ has many different parts, just as any other body does. 13 Some of us are Jews, and others are Gentiles. Some of us are slaves, and others are free. But God’s Spirit baptized each of us and made us part of the body of Christ. Now we each drink from that same Spirit. 14 Our bodies don’t have just one part. They have many parts.

We all need each other and the world needs us. There is plenty of room at the Table. It’s not about us, it’s about Jesus. Amen.

Now praise God like you really, really love Him.

I love you with an amazing and everlasting love.

Honoring A Great Christian Soldier….


Good morning, Saints of the Most High God:

Allow me to apologize for not writing for a couple of days. My body was busy trying to heal and get better. Praise God, I am back and better than ever. 

Today, I want to give thanks and praise to a powerful and faithful Christian Soldier for the Lord, Dr. Billy Graham. Dr. Graham died yesterday at the age of 99. All of my life the name of Dr. Graham was synonymous with a passion for saving and rescuing souls from the enemy’s hand. 

I can only imagine the greeting he received, in heaven, as all of those souls, that have gone on before him, met him and said, “Thank You, because of your ministry, I am here.”

So today’s worship video is dedicated to Dr. Graham. Thank you, Dr. Graham, for changing and touching so many lives and souls. 

As always noted, on the Home Page of this website, I do not claim ownership to any of the videos or images used in the devotionals I write. The images and videos are only used, as tools, for the edification and lifting up of the body of Christ. 

I love you with an amazing and everlasting love.

Purposefully Loved…


Good morning, Saints of God:

I come to you to proclaim and remind you that God’s love for you is intentional and purposeful.

So many times the free-will actions of men get blamed on God, but God truly does want the very best for you. Read below as the writer of Lamentations understands God’s love.

Lamentations 3:18-24 

Contemporary English Version (CEV)

18 I tell myself, “I am finished!
I can’t count on the Lord
    to do anything for me.”
19 Just thinking of my troubles
and my lonely wandering
    makes me miserable.
20 That’s all I ever think about,
    and I am depressed.
21 Then I remember something
    that fills me with hope.
22 The Lord’s kindness never fails!
If he had not been merciful,
    we would have been destroyed.
23 The Lord can always be trusted
    to show mercy each morning.
24 Deep in my heart I say,
“The Lord is all I need;
    I can depend on him!”

God is good and his mercy does endure forever. If your heart is hardened toward God, let him know. Ask him to soften your heart so that you may have an intimate, personal and intentional relationship with Him.

I love you with an amazing and everlasting love.

Try Jesus…

Whenever I teach or preach, at a church or other venue, if my mother is in the audience, I always acknowledge her and thank her for being the first bible I ever knew.

I honor my mother for teaching me about God, before I knew how to read or comprehend the Word of God. As a child, I remember my mom and I kneeling next to my bed, as she taught me the Lord’s Prayer and the “I Pray My Soul To Keep” prayer. 

My mother is an example of someone who is sold out and devoted to God. Even when hardship and struggles come, the first thing my mom will say is, “I don’t serve a weak God. It will be ok.” My mom takes in people that others would close their doors to, because of their past and sometimes current actions. She believes the scripture that Jesus taught:

Matthew 25:31-40 

Contemporary English Version (CEV)

The Final Judgment

31 When the Son of Man comes in his glory with all of his angels, he will sit on his royal throne. 32 The people of all nations will be brought before him, and he will separate them, as shepherds separate their sheep from their goats.

33 He will place the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. 34 Then the king will say to those on his right, “My father has blessed you! Come and receive the kingdom that was prepared for you before the world was created. 35 When I was hungry, you gave me something to eat, and when I was thirsty, you gave me something to drink. When I was a stranger, you welcomed me, 36 and when I was naked, you gave me clothes to wear. When I was sick, you took care of me, and when I was in jail, you visited me.”

37 Then the ones who pleased the Lord will ask, “When did we give you something to eat or drink? 38 When did we welcome you as a stranger or give you clothes to wear 39 or visit you while you were sick or in jail?”

40 The king will answer, “Whenever you did it for any of my people, no matter how unimportant they seemed, you did it for me.”

My mom understands that being a Christian is not always easy or convenient. One of the things that she always tells any guest that is struggling is, “My I suggest that you Try Jesus.”

My mom is 75 years old and today I just want to thank her for teaching me, when I was just a child, to “Try Jesus.” 

I did momma… Thank you, for offering Christ. 

So today, I extend the invitation to anyone that is at the end of their rope and themselves. In the words of my mother, “Try Jesus. May I offer Christ to you?”

I love you with an amazing and everlasting love.

Humbly Bow Before the King…

Good morning, Sons and Daughters of Creation:

This morning my spirit is trembling. Not out of fear but out of utter reverence for the King of Glory. The sheer power of just a fragment of God’s glory leaves me speechless. 

O God, how great is your majesty. How fragrant is your presence. I would love to sit at your feet and sing my praises over you. May my life be a living worship sacrifice to you. 

This is the day the Lord has made, Saints!!!!

Let Us Rejoice and be glad in it!

Your problems, concerns, fears and worries are no match for God. Hand them over. Let them go and tell the Lord, “Thank You.”

Trust the outcome. Trust God. Believe God.

This morning, I truly just want to worship on God.

I love you with an amazing and everlasting love.

Magnificent Monday…


Good morning, Beautiful Lights of God’s Love:

It’s been raining here in Georgia for what seems like forever. All this rain has a tendency to dampen a person’s spirit. I motivate and encourage myself by starting my day focused on the goodness of God.

Today, for me, is Magnificent Monday. Let me list just a few of my many blessings, one by one, that happened just in the last two hours: I woke up this morning. I opened my eyes to the most beautiful man I have ever known. He has a heart for God, humankind and me. We were able to have our choice of clothes to wear. We were able to pack a lunch for today and stop for coffee. We were able to get into vehicles. Bless God, we both made it to work with no hurt, harm or danger coming near us. I am able to sit in our break room, before my work day starts, and write this message to encourage you.

I could literally list a thousand reasons to tell God, “Thank You,” just for today alone.

I encourage you to continue to pour your praises out on God. So many things are easy to take for granted until they are gone. Count each blessing one by one.

Have a Magnificent Monday and remember that I love you with an amazing and everlasting love.

Won’t He Do It! Friday Praise…


Faithful, True, Loyal, Praiseworthy, King, Conqueror, Alpha and Omega, the One who is and Is to Come.

Let God fight your battles today. He already knows the end from the very beginning. Just be ready when he tells you… Be still, but be ready…

It’s been a while since a we had a Praise Friday. So today get ready to dance like David danced. 

Galatians 3:7-9 

Contemporary English Version (CEV)

And so, you should understand that everyone who has faith is a child of Abraham.[a] Long ago the Scriptures said that God would accept the Gentiles because of their faith. That’s why God told Abraham the good news that all nations would be blessed because of him. This means that everyone who has faith will share in the blessings that were given to Abraham because of his faith.

Have a wonderful and marvelous weekend. Always remember that I love you with an amazing and everlasting love.

Well Done…



Can you imagine that wonderful day when we get to see Jesus face to face. Can you fathom the sheer power and glory of being in the presence of the Lion of Judah, the Bright and Morning Star? I’m getting excited just thinking about it.

The words I want to hear the most are, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” I want to know that the life I lived here on this earth brought glory and honor to the Kingdom of God.

Matthew 25:22-23

Amplified Bible (AMP)

22 “Also the one who had the two talents came forward, saying, ‘Master, you entrusted two talents to me. See, I have [made a profit and] gained two more talents.’ 23 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful andtrustworthy over a little, I will put you in charge of many things; share in the joy of your master.’

I know that some days were not my best days. I know that some seasons of my life Grace and Mercy were working overtime on my behalf. Once I realized that my life was not my own then I began to understand my purpose as a Christian.

Ask God everyday to use you for his glory. Ask the Holy Spirit to make clear to you how to shine bright and change lives. You are here for a reason. Run your race well.

I love you with an amazing and everlasting love.
