Restless?



There is a scripture that says, in Proverbs 3:24
“When you lie down, you will not be afraid;
When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.”

For the past few days, I have been listening to a rain and thunder sound app on my iPhone . I love falling asleep listening to a heavy thunderstorm, and rain. The crackling of the lighting, dancing across the midnight sky, and the sounds of the rain pouring down on the rooftop, as if a thousand horses were racing across the roof, is relaxing to my soul. It always seems to be able ease me into a gentle sleep.

The only problem I have had, is that I would constantly wake up to the sounds, and then slowly drift off back to sleep. Don’t get me wrong! I enjoy every moment of a good, ole pour down of rain, and cracking whips of thunder, but with work in the morning. I like to stay asleep.

One night I decided to put on one of my favorite pastors. I placed my iPhone on top of my dark chocolate ottoman, and then allowed the sound of preaching, to played happily throughout my home.
That night I had the best sleep ever! I woke up the next morning, completely refreshed, and surprised! Not one time, had I woken up! It reminded me of the scripture above .... “He gives his beloved sweet sleep”.


The word of God had played gently throughout the night. Filling the atmosphere of my home with powerful words of sound teaching and giving rest to my soul.
Next time you find yourself, having a hard time staying asleep. Try the comfort of listening to the word of God. I tell you what, there is no other comfort, like it!

Have a Bless night in Christ, 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.
