I AM NOT THE AVERAGE WOMAN; I AM NOT THE AVERAGE SAINT; I DARE TO BE DIFFERENT ; CAN WE ALL SAY "AMEN!"

Scripture: 


For Every Mountain - 36x24 print - WAK
1 Samuel 16:7 

"But the LORD said to Samuel, "Don't judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The LORD doesn't see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart." (NLT)


Romans 2:29

"No, a true Jew is one whose heart is right with God. And true circumcision is not merely obeying the letter of the law; rather, it is a change of heart produced by God's Spirit. And a person with a changed heart seeks praise from God, not from people." (NLT)


Jeremiah 17:10

"I the LORD search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve." (NIV)




By definition of a "Saint", you can call me a Born-Again-Redeemed-Forgiven-Sinner. However, by my Father's definition, I call myself, a Radically-Saved-Non-Conservative-Non-Sectarian-Born-Again-Saint! ( Jesus forbade "sectarianism" Luke 9:49-50)


Why do you ask??? Well, I will tell you! 


I don't look like the "traditional" Pastor. I may wear a cross around my neck, however, my heart knows that my all my sins were bored on the cross and I am forgiven. 

I may wear my hair in crazy hairstyles from time to time and most of you will see me bald if I choose. However, my Heavenly Father has told me in His Word, that not one hair on my head will be harmed and he counts everyone! (Luke 12:7 & Luke 21:18)

In my creative- beautiful- self, I take a page from Genesis 24:22, and allow myself to be adorned with nose rings. HE gives me license to become ME! And I do it before the Body of Christ unashamedly! You see, my Heavenly Father lets me know in His Word, that He doesn't judge me by my appearance, that He only judges my heart! (1Samuel 16:7; Jeremiah 17:10; Romans 2:29) 


So, in ALL sincerity, and with ALL that has been said in its complexity! 



I am called a "Pastor". But, my heart defines me by "Accepted","Beloved", "Chosen", "Called", "Bride", "Leader", "Wife", "Mother", "Friend", "Peaceful", "Graceful", "Magnaninous", "Effervescent", "Prosperous" and "Loved."



AND, all of this because HE loves me so!


So, I CHOOSE this DAY, to TREAT others, like the way my Heavenly Father God treats me! I CHOOSE not to JUDGE the outward appearance of others because if I do, I will be judging myself! I CHOOSE this DAY, to LOVE the way Jesus loves because He loved me when I was unlovable! I CHOOSE this DAY, to WALK in the INTEGRITY of our SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!



SO, HOW MAY PEOPLE ARE WITH ME?



SAY "I"






For those who don't know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, I invite you into knowing Him. (Romans 10:9-14)

Prayer: Lord, Please forgive me of my sins. I ask you to come into my heart and cleanse me by your blood that was shed for me on the cross. Today, I renounce satan and all of my sins and decide to walk in your presence and power. Thank you, Father, for loving me and accepting me into your kingdom. In Jesus name, amen!

Now, once when you have prayed this prayer. I encourage you to purchase a Bible, find a good church home and join a good Bible study group. I encourage you to start with the book of Matthew and continue on. (Starter scriptures: Isaiah 43:25-26; 44:6-8; Isaiah 53; John 1)


Congratulations on your new birth! God blesses you!

DON'T PASS THEM BY SERIES; "AN INVITATION TO LIVING WATER "


WELCOME TO CORNER CARE MINISTRIES OFFICIAL WEBSITE: 

Pastordwilliams50.wixsite.com/corner-care


(Here you can listen to my sermons, view my blogs, chat with me and send a prayer request all in one convenient location)






Scripture:



John 4:14

"But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (ESV)




John 3:5-8

Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.  Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.  You should not be surprised at my saying, You must be born again. The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”(NIV)


Hebrews 9:27


"And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment."(ESV)



YOU CAN LEAD THEM TO "LIVING WATER" BUT, IT'S UP TO THEM TO TAKE A "DRINK."  



Her name was "Faye", she was a tenant of the Condominiums where I was the brief assistant manager. Each month, Faye would come into the office to pay her rent, and every time I would giver her the receipt and she would leave and I went on with my daily work routine. But, this particular time, Faye came into the office and asked me if I knew the Lord. So being very eager to share my faith I shared with her about salvation and invited her to my home church. At first, she was very reluctant, however, with encouragement she came to church with me. And, at her request, I conducted mini bible studies with her and did a Q&A on salvation and the Bible. 

Now, this went on for about three months and every day, I made progress with her hoping to win her over to the Lord. You see, she was hurt by clergy and I wanted to win her confidence. I wanted to show her love and acceptance and also, show her that we in the Lord don't bite!

Now, we are in the month of March, and Faye asked me to help her say the "prayer of faith". So, eager as I was, I gleefully led her to the Lord. I was so elated because I knew this girl had a hard life and salvation would be the key to her success in living a better life.  However, it was her past that we both had to fight. On her end, she had to let go of the demons generational curses that had held her back, and for me, the fight was to do warfare prayer and encourage her to stay with the Lord. 

In April, Faye's boyfriend came to live with her after his release from prison. This is where the enemy tried to seduce her back to her old world. However, being the fighter and prayer warrior that I am, I was not afraid of this felon neither the men that came over to visit him at the condo. So, I continued to encourage her to stay with the Lord in spite of his threats of harm to her and me. By the way, I didn't tell my husband the extent of the threats from this guy. However, this guy saw how big my husband was and my husband is a force to reckon with, so, I didn't fear. I had my Father in heaven, I had the power of the Holy Spirit, my protection angels and, I had my husband's bulk. I wasn't fearing for nobody! And yes, I tried to get her to leave this violent man on numerous occasions, but to no avail, she stayed. 

Later on, I found out that she was three months pregnant with his baby and he threatened to kill her if she had left him. So, I continued on being there for her and taking her to church whenever she wanted to go, which, was becoming less and less. 

One day, at the prompting of the Lord, I went to Faye's condo. At first, Faye was reluctant to open the door, so I knew that man was in there and preventing her from speaking with me. So, praying in the Holy Spirit under my breath, the devil finally let her go and she opened the door. I didn't go in, however, I did encourage her to come out to speak with me which, she did. At this time, I knew she was in danger. I told her if she needed shelter, for her to come to my place and I would make sure that she would get the help and asylum that she needed, that I had resources for her to help her.  

Every day, I went through this routine with her; coax her outside and talk to her, encourage her to come to church with me and wait on Sunday morning for her to come. And, no Faye.

But, this particular Sunday, which was Palm Sunday, Faye decided to come to church with me. I felt so elated! My thought was, "The devil is defeated and I won't let him have the upper hand on this child; Devil, take your hands off her!"

So, here we are in church, and my bishop had this sermon that I knew that my fears were about to become a dreaded reality. You see, I had a vision that Faye was not going to be here too long on this earth, and the urgency was to make sure that her salvation was cemented in our Lord and Savior Jesus. At first, I tried to fight these thoughts, but, now I know, that it was the Lord showing me that he wanted her saved before she left this earth.

Here,  we are in church on Palm Sunday. Bishop's message was on the acceptance of  Jesus before it's too late. One thing that still sticks in my memory, was the statement that Bishop said, "There are some of you that may not make it to the end of this week, You need to accept Jesus Christ, for some of you played around too long with God, and you need to accept Him before it's too late; For some of you, you will not make it to Easter." Well, my heart leaped in fear for Faye. I stood there praying in the Holy Spirit as if He was going to move her feet to run down to the alter and cement her salvation. But, that didn't happen. Faye just stood there next to me and stayed quiet the entire time. My thoughts were to grab her by her arm and drag her to the altar like she was my child. I wanted her to live! 

So, here I am, praying in the Holy Spirit that Faye would go down to the front and confirm her salvation, but, that never happened. And, I felt so sick inside, because I knew this was her last time to accept the invitation. 

Easter Eve is here,  and my husband was at work and I was getting ready for Easter day. Around midnight, I got a knock on my door, it was a police officer. He asked me if I was the manager on site, and I told him, "yes." Well, nothing was going to prepare me for what was ahead.

The police officer told me that there was a young woman that was three months pregnant and that she was fatally shot three times and was pronounced dead at the scene along with her boyfriend. I went down to where her body was and the police would not allow me near the crime scene but, the police officer told me that her body was in the doorway she looked like she was trying to escape. 

I blamed myself for months for not getting to her in time. I didn't know that the calls that were cutting off my dial-up connection were Faye. In the late 1990's, we had dial-up and I was on the computer. If anyone who has knowledge about dialups, they will disconnect when the phone rings, especially, when you only have one line.  And, my phone kept ringing, and I didn't want to answer it, I was in the middle of working on my computer. 

For many months I carried the guilt of "if only." I sank into a deep depression, I walked around in a mental fog filled with guilt, fear that I failed God. I played everything in my head like a record. Over and over trying to find ways of how I could have prevented this young woman from leaving this earth. It took a toll on my mental well-being. But, you know the great thing about our Lord and Savior? He will get you out of anything even when you don't have the mental strength to fight. The Lord showed me, not only he was protecting me and my three small children, ages 18 months, 5 and 6 years from this man who was shooting at anyone who was in contact with Faye, but, he gave Faye an invitation to salvation and resources to get out of her situation. Sadly, Faye chose to stay in her situation. 

She told me once, that she loved this man, and that they can build a life together. And, I told Faye if she stayed with this man that she won't have a life. It took a while, but eventually, I healed from this ordeal and now I am sharing this story with you.


What I would love for all of you to gain from this story....

1) Work to build their trust and give the invitation to salvation
2) Prayerfully lead as the Lord leads you.
3) Don't ever put yourself and your family in danger. God never places us in risky situations to bring harm to ourselves and our families. But, know that he will protect you if you find yourself there.
4) After the invitation, if that person never decides to commit themselves to Jesus Christ, know that you are loving and caring enough to want them to be in the Body of Christ. You gave your best to get them saved!
5) Know that you have done all that you could do within the power of God that he allowed you to do. Your obedience to the Lord to bring that soul to Him will not go unnoticed by Him.


KEEP SHARING AND LOVING THEM TO THE LORD OUR SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!





For those who don't know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, I invite you into knowing Him. (Romans 10:9-14)

Prayer: Lord, Please forgive me of my sins. I ask you to come into my heart and cleanse me by your blood that was shed for me on the cross. Today, I renounce satan and all of my sins and decide to walk in your presence and power. Thank you, Father, for loving me and accepting me into your kingdom. In Jesus name, amen!

Now, once when you have prayed this prayer. I encourage you to purchase a Bible, find a good church home and join a good Bible study group. I encourage you to start with the book of Matthew and continue on. (Starter scriptures: Isaiah 43:25-26; 44:6-8; Isaiah 53; John 1)

"DON'T PASS THEM BY"


WELCOME TO CORNER CARE MINISTRIES OFFICIAL WEBSITE: 

Pastordwilliams50.wixsite.com/corner-care


(Here you can listen to my sermons, view my blogs, chat with me and send a prayer request all in one convenient location)





Scripture:

Isaiah 58:10 


"And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday."


Deuteronomy 15:11 


"For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land."


Proverbs 14:21 

"He that despiseth his neighbor sinneth: but he that hath mercy on the poor, happy is he."




Experiences Do Matter!


Over a series of my blogs, you will see an on-going theme for awhile. The Lord has directed me and I will do exactly what he asks. SO PLEASE BEAR WITH ME!




I have been saved for over 35 years, and for the most of my walk in the Lord, I have experienced and seen a lot, like the most of you. However, I would like to share some of my experiences with you as per direction from the Lord.

This morning, the Lord put in my remembrance of an experience that I had when I was very young in Him. When I look back on this experience, I see that I was a trainee of His, and unknowingly, He was training me for what I am doing today...



ISN'T IT GREAT, THAT GOD'S TRAINING SESSIONS ARE NOT JUST ONE TIME IN YOUR LIFE, BUT IT'S A NEVER ENDING, NEVER CEASING, SCHOOL ROOM OF VALUABLE LESSONS, THAT CAN NEVER BE TAUGHT BY A HUMAN BEING. IT HAS TO BE "HOLY SPIRIT" TAUGHT, ONLY!




When I was nineteen-years-old, I was staying with my sister in Piscataway, New Jersey for the summer. One day, she and I decided to go to take the train to New York City. We ended up on 42nd street right in the middle of Times Square and right down the street from Central Park. Just as you walked past of most of the theaters, you came up to a hotel. At the time, I didn't know what a "relief hotel" was, and I needed to use the restroom. You see, some of the businesses there wouldn't allow you to use their facilities unless you were their patrons. So, I was desperate! My sister and I departed for a moment as I went into this building. Really, I didn't know what I was going into, however, I can tell you if you are part of my generation, think of the shows,"Hillstreet Blues or Baretta." When I was inside of the lobby of this building, it reeked of urine, feces and the "trash", well, a landfill could not compete!

I remember, I just stood there is disbelief! I couldn't wrap my head around what I was seeing. But, one thing I knew, that there were people living in the midst of the filth inside of this building and my heart went out to them. At the time I wished I was a millionaire, my thought was, "I would buy this building from this slumlord, and renovate it and place these people in a better environment." 

However, the reality was, I had no money, and was just on the cusp of going to college and didn't know anyone who had funds like that. 

I remember, just standing there when a young woman just my age came out of her apartment. She came up to me and asked me was I visiting someone there. I told her, "no", I needed to use the restroom and didn't see a public toilet in the lobby. The young lady was sweet enough to allow me to enter into her apartment to use her bathroom. But, I was not prepared for what I was about to see...

Mind you, it was in the middle of January, and we were just out of a snow storm. Everything was melting. However, as I walked into this apartment, it was filthy with trash all around and the window was open. It was dark and freezing. Over to the left of the room, I saw a tiny figure, it was a toddler, no older than three years old. This baby, only had on a very soiled diaper, with no shirt and bare feet. You know, I did forget to use the bathroom for a moment, because my attention was on that child. I picked him up and held him inside of my coat. You know, I did become angry at the mother, but I didn't say anything to her. I put the toddler down and went inside of her bathroom. There, well, she used the tub for a sink and the toilet, well, we won't go there! But, I can tell you, I didn't want to embarrass her, and I used it. Afterward, I talked with her and gave her my phone number and I gave her my last piece of money I had in my pocket to buy the toddler diapers. I was trying not to cry, I knew that baby was in harm's way. For the helplessness I felt, the only thing I could offer more for her is to witness about the Lord, give her my phone number and give her money. I still felt hopeless and powerless to help this woman. 

When I came out of this building, my sister was standing right outside of the door. She yelled at me. She explained to me about what a "relief hotel" was and that I was talking to an addict and I put myself in danger of being harmed. Could she make me feel any worse?! 

I was angry at myself because I wanted to help more. I wanted to take that baby and place him in better care. All I could do is to remember the address and call social services. Mind you, not to undermine the mother but, to help them both. This is all I could do with the limited resources that I had at the time. But, I prayed a lot for this child and mother. Even so much more for the child, because that child was the future. Do you know, that child would be 33 years old today? 

I don't know the fate of that child, but, I know a GOD that heard my heart's cry at a second of a heartbeat. I know a GOD, that saw the tears of that child and the demon of addiction that plagued that mother and HE does deliver and HE does send help even when my prayers seem like they won't move, THEY DO!

If any of you have experienced anything like this, I want to encourage you when you think you have nothing to give, YOU DO! 

GOD is JEHOVA JIREH, OUR PROVIDER! HE is the BREATH in our prayers! HE is the DELIVER that can dispatch angels all around the person that we send an incense of PRAYER up to HIM. 


USE WHAT YOU HAVE IN YOUR HANDS, AND DON'T BE ASHAMED OF WHAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE! REMEMBER, JESUS IS IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL!



Blessings in ALL that you lay your hands to for the Lord Jesus today!






For those who don't know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, I invite you into knowing Him. (Romans 10:9-14)
