“I May Sink or I May Swim…but I Will Try!!”

A few days ago I found myself  wondering whether or not the energy that I had been investing in my dreams was truly worth the effort. For a brief moment, I seriously considered aborting my future goals as a result of some previous attempts that had yielded lack luster results. However, as I continued to ponder my circumstances, I concluded that I could not live my life laden with such paralyzing fear and apprehension about potential negative outcomes, that I refused to take the risk of trying.

I cannot  fathom the depth of regret that would consume my soul of not knowing whether or not I could have become an award-winning best-selling author, renowned international motivational speaker and evangelist, or Oprah Winfrey’s replacement as the Queen of daytime media because I allowed myself to succumb to self doubt. I realize that I must embrace the fact that failure is indeed possible. However, I must celebrate the greater reality of my imminent success because my confidence is invested in Christ Jesus who strengthens me to do all things through him (Philippians 4:13).

I am reminded of the Apostle Peter. Matthew 14:28-32  accounts  Peter’s impossible feat of walking on water.  The blustery winds taunted him with its chilling howl and banshee like shrieks, as the vessel he journeyed in rocked violently as the waves of the sea crashed against its sides. Yet, the Lord tells Peter to take a step of faith and walk on the water towards him.

Peter did what most of us would not do; he took a risk without knowing the outcome. Would he sink or would he swim? As result of his initial faith he accomplished greater than either one…he WALKED on water. True, his faith began to falter and he found himself beginning to sink…but the fact still remains that he learned that if he kept his faith invested in the words of Christ…he could indeed foster the miracle of walking on water. What if Peter had allowed fear to keep him imprisoned in the boat? He would have never learned firsthand that the impossible was indeed possible with God.

Therefore Beloveds I have made a decision to not give up. I will awaken the dreamer in me and resuscitate every vision that has stop breathing.  I may sink, or I may swim but nevertheless I will try.  I touch and agree that you will do the same in your life.

 

Remember this, defeat does not fit you. However, success you wear well.

 

Much love and success to you,

“Break the Silence”

   A few days ago, “New Jerseyans” were blessed to experience a burst of sunshine and a sprinkle of spring warmth in the midst of our winter season.  It was a joy to experience the brief hiatus from the frigid temperatures and blustery winds that had become our constant companion.

     Taking advantage of the superb weather conditions, I embarked on a stroll around the grounds of my place of employment in hopes of burning some much needed calories. As I began to walk, I began to allow my spirit to pray and the words that I uttered were “God, when are you going to break the silence”? “I have been asking you for direction and you haven’t answered me.” The response back that I received was, When are YOU going to break the silence??” I stopped in my tracks. I was bewildered by His response as I was the one who had initiated the afternoon dialogue and I had just referred to my constant inquiries to Him regarding the need for direction for my life. He continued His speech, You talk to me when you FEEL like it, and then you expect me to answer you right away all the time. It doesn’t work like that.”

      Wow! True, I had been inquiring of God about certain situations in my life, but I have to admit that I had not been in consistent and FERVENT PRAYER. Yes, I prayed daily but most times it was “on the run,” because of being preoccupied with other things. I had not been in my prayer closet in weeks sharing uninterrupted, focused, and intentional intimacy with God.

That day, I learned an important lesson. If we want God to break the silence and speak to us, then we have to break the silence by inviting in a spirit of consistency in our lives. The Scriptures says, “The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results” James 5:16 (NLT). Perhaps we are praying…but not earnestly and on a consistent basis. This means CARVING out time to pray amidst our busy schedules and the exhaustion that overwhelms our bodies.

I encourage you today to break the silence and become committed to earnest prayer and supplication to God on a daily basis; not just when you feel up to it, but despite how you feel. When we are faithful in breaking our silence to Him, He will be faithful in breaking His silence to us and send us our much needed answers.

 

Please pray for me. I know that you will. I am praying for you.

 

Sincerely,

“He’s an Intelligent God!”

It is very easy to become frustrated and overwhelmed by what would appear to be the injustices of life. When things happen that we do not understand or agree with; even the strongest of Christians can begin to question the allowance of our God. After all, if He is omniscient, WHY would he sit back and allow things to transpire that He already knows is going to cause us inconvenience/ and or pain?  These are questions that I have been mulling over for some time.

As my tradition, I placed my answer on the altar of prayer and patiently waited for God to provide me with a satisfactory explanation. Well He answered me alright, but as His tradition, he did not respond to me in the fashion that I was expecting. His answer came to me in a form of rebuke. He said to me, “STOP INSULTING MY INTELLIGIENCE.”  WOW!

Like, the prophet Isaiah I experienced a “Woe Is Me!!” moment (See Isaiah 6:5). I suddenly realized how miniscule my opinion is in the sight of God. I realized that when I question God’s authority and sovereignty I inadvertently insult His intelligence.

Saints, amidst all of the chaos in our world, God knows what He is doing. He is not blind-sided or taken off guard by ANYTHING or ANYONE. Jesus wasn’t even blinded sided by Judas. He knew all along that Judas wasn’t trust worthy and would eventually betray him; yet his Father allowed him to experience the hurt and humiliation of being betrayed by someone he once called friend. (See Matthew 26:23). God allowed Jesus to experience much sorrow and grief for the greater good of His divine plan.

Rest easy my friend. Do not resign, withdraw, or sink into hopelessness because of what is taking place in our land or in your personal life.  Be encouraged and remember this:

“God has spoken plainly, and I have heard it many times: Power, O God, belongs to you”; (Psalms 62:11 NLT)
Do not become guilty of insulting God’s intelligence by arguing with or refusing to accept God’s plan for your life. He knows what He is doing. Just trust Him and LIVE!

“A Cause Worth Fighting For”

img_4664A Cause Worth Fighting For

 

A few weeks ago, I had to minister to a  woman who was distraught because her teen aged daughter had been engaged in an altercation that resulted in her arrest and  conviction of aggravated assault.  The young lady had been trying to defend herself, however, the judge that presided over her case was merciless and initially refused to consider a plea bargain of any type to reduce the harshness of the sentencing.  The mother and daughter were both devastated as this was the first offense ever committed by the child.  As any caring parent would do, the mom requested an appeal to the ruling and a new date was set to review the case.  The mother believed that her daughter’s future was a cause worth fighting for.

 

As  a mother myself, my heart was immediately filled with compassion for this woman and I agreed that I would go into intercession on behalf of the daughter.  The retrial was set for a Thursday morning. I went into prayer a few days before and then the Thursday of the court day. In my prayer time, the Lord spoke to me pray against the “Unjust Judge”(see Luke 18:1-5) and intercede that on the day of the trial the young lady would stand before a “Just Judge.” I texted the mom, to tell her to pray the same thing before they went to court.

 

At 1:08 pm , Thursday afternoon, the mom texted me these words “From your mouth to God’s ear she went before a just judge and received no jail time; just probation for 1 year.”  You cannot tell me that the God that I serve is not real and does not answer prayer! How awesome is MY God!!

 

The Lord began to speak to me after I read the text message. So many times in life, we are denied fairness and favor because we are dealing with unjust people who lack compassion and empathy. We accept there “NO” and their judgment, not realizing that we serve a God who has the final say and ruling over every aspect of our lives. Just because they say “NO;” doesn’t mean that God does.

 

Is your cause worth fighting for? If you are experiencing injustice in your life, I encourage  you to not accept the verdict that has been rendered by the unjust one. Connect with a prayer partner and plead your case before the “Just Judge, Jesus Christ, our advocate(I John 2:1). He is able to move people out of the way, redirect the thoughts of man, turn hearts that were against us towards, and replace those who are unwillingly to comply with His terms. Just as God ordered a new ruling with a  just judge for this woman and her daughter; He can order a new ruling over your life’s situation.

 

 

Remember, this, God has spoken once, Twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God” (Psalms 62:11)

 

Stay blessed, and remain encouraged.

Sheri Allen-Curvin
