Growing in Christ: Not a sinner



I often time hear many people call themselves sinners. Especially those who are Christians. Now those who do not know Christ, have label themselves correctly! However, many Christians are missing the entire point of the bible.

Picture yourself sitting at your desk, or a table. You have a nice, cold glass of red juice on the table, in a cup. You also have an important piece a paper, there.

Now see yourself accidentally spilling your cup over. The contents of the cup, spills over, unto the paper, saturating it with the red juice !

You see what is in that cup represents the blood of Jesus. The blood that was spilled for our sins! That paper represents, every person who has received what Christ has done on the cross. The bible tells us that God took our sins upon himself, at the cross! 

2 Corinthians 5:21
21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

Did you see what that verse said!! It's said..." That we might become Righteousness of God" Hallelujah!!

Jesus took our present, past and future sins! As the cup of Juice flows across the table, and across the paper, it often cover a massive section!

Just like our Savior! He covers it all! Jesus's blood shed was no accident! Christ loved us so much, that instead of leaving us as sinners, He covered us in His saving blood! Christ engrafted us into His blood line of royalty!

We are no longer looked upon as sinners! But sons and daughters in Christ....

1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 who once werenot a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.

Goooood morning King Jesus! Goooood morning family and friends! Have a bless weekend... Love Sis Rashida

Pillar of Salt Syndrome

What in the world are looking you back for? Your past? What you could have, should have done? Hurts? Let me start with a story about Lot’s wife. For those that do not know this story or need just a little reminder, do you remember the woman who turns into a pillar of salt? Lot`s wife was a woman in the bible who turn into a pillar of salt, because she looked back at her past. Lot`s wife was warned by angels, to not look back at the city of Sodom and Gomorrah where she and her family had once dwelt. God had sent angels to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. Sodom and Gomorrah was a city ruled by sexual perversion and every other sin in the book. Therefore, God sent two angels to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. But First God brought Lot and his family out of the city that their life might be saved.

Let us fast forward to Lot’s wife. Now the angel of the Lord specifically warns lot’s family to not look back as the city while it was being destroyed. However, Lot’s wife chooses to look back and she h…

What is the purpose of life ?

One thing I am learning in life, is don’t waste anymore time! All that time and energy I have wasted complaining about things I can not change, can be time and energy well spent moving forward!

Keep pressing in, it does get better, if you just keep moving forward in Christ❤️


Philippians 3:12-14
Pressing Toward the Goal
12 Not that I have already attained,or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Raising my children in Christ

What a blessing to be a mother and the opportunity to raise my children in Christ. Daily I am teaching my children that God has called us Christians to be the light in this world of darkness. To do good even in the midst of evil. To choose to serve God, even when family and friends choose to do otherwise.


We are in the last days here on earth and the returning of Christ Jesus draws near! I want to see my entire family, ready for His return. The Bible teaches we do not know the day or the hour but we do know the season. We are to stay ready!


Daily, as a family we dig in this word, and daily we renew our mind. If you have children keep sharing this gospel, keep praying for them ! God has a hold of their hearts.


Scripture reading for today...

Psalm 89:15-16  (NKJV)
15 Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound!
They walk, O Lord, in the light of Your countenance.
16 In Your name they rejoice all day long,
And in Your righteousness they are exalted.
