Heavenly Father, I give You praise this morning for You are marvellous and beautiful beyond description. What a privilege it is to come before Your throne and worship You.
I thank You for Your power and love that heals... Your love that has and will continue to mend the brokenhearted. When I look back at some of the challenges I have gone through, I am truly grateful to You for bringing me through and healing my wounds. I pray that through my experiences, it will be an opportunity for me to grow and draw closer to You.
I pray for all those going through tough times, that You will show Yourself strong as the all-powerful, all-loving Father that I know You to be. I also thank You for Your precious son Jesus, thank You for sending Him and the power in His name also. Thank You for the blood that I can cover myself in... the blood that speaks life, healing, protection and so much more.
Thank You for being who You say You are and never going back on Your word.
In Jesus' name, Amen
Be Encouraged, Be Expectant,
Kemi Kems .
#transparency time - posting is the last thing I want to be doing right now. For you see, I have health issues and today they knocked me off my feet! As I squint at this iPhone screen, my head is fuzzy, my fever is high, and my abdomen/colon are in extreme pain. As in, almost-can't-move pain. But I am reminded that this is what being #perfectlyweak is. My brain and body say "I CAN'T do this again..." But my God says He CAN and WILL give me strength to get through this attack. My struggle is physical, what's your difficulty? What do you have going on that you say to yourself, "I CAN'T do this"? Cry out to God. Let His strength be made perfect in your weakness today. #godheals#brokenness
If you have had a family member (or know someone) with Alzheimer's, I urge you to get this book & read it pronto!
I read the first 3 chapters then skipped to skim some of the protocol out of curiosity, and WOW. I am SO GLAD I took a chance on this book... It also is once again frustrating that Big Pharma has not embraced another natural help...one with proven cases of cognitive decline reversal...but hopefully this being a bestseller with reports & proof to back it up will help others anyway!!! Alzheimer's is heartbreaking. I have seen it too much in two of my grandparents, and not nearly as much as my family members who took care of them. BUT IT IS NOT THE END OF THE STORY ANY LONGER.

Karl Plagge was as German soldier in WWI who fell for Adolph Hitler’s rhetoric to rebuild Germany to its former state of prominence and wealth. Plagge, also an engineer, rose through the ranks of the Nazi party and by 1941 found himself in charge of the slaughter of Lithuanian Jews. Instead of embracing this role, Plagge took dangerous and drastic measures to save the lives of hundreds of Jews by issuing permits that kept them out of the concentration camps and provided decent food for them to eat.
Plagge’s efforts weren’t enough to keep thousands of Jews in Lithuania from being slaughtered, but they were such that when he was later being tried for war crimes after Germany fell to the Allied Forces, Jews who had benefitted from Plagge’s efforts wrote letters in his defense.
Karl Plagge, a presumed enemy of the Jews, risked his life for those he was ‘supposed’ to hate. If a man like that would do these things for people he didn’t even know, just image what God, who created each and every one of us, will do for us when we let Him!
DO IT: Make a list of people you consider to be your enemies—people you don’t get along with, people who have hurt your feelings, etc.. Do something kind for each of them this week.
What you can’t see is eternal and what you can see is temporal. We are called to set our eyes on the unseen. When I shift to a heavenly perspective, hope is infused into every situation, and I’m reminded anything is possible. HEALING is possible. And so today I choose to pray healing over every #metoo I read.
MY FIRST BOOK. Look what I got! Mom noticed my interest listening to poetry and thought maybe I would like to be read some of the famous Bible stories. I must say, this is a good way to lull me to sleep. It's also a good way to introduce me to people of great faith, after all, my life is a continuing testimony of faith. Nope, it's not too early for me to learn about God. The most powerful being whom everybody prays to specially during these times. I need to know Him to understand Him so that I can serve Him & live the purpose He has called me for. Serious talk huh? Yes, it is high time I start learning about the Greatest Physician, the Mighty Healer, the King of Kings, the One who is full of Mercy and Love to bring hope to the hearts of my family during the times they needed it most. He has planted to me the will and strength to fight for my life and existence in this world because He knows how special I am. I am a child of God and because of that, I am uniquely special in whatever shape or form He has decided me to be. I hope through this simple learning tool, my interest to know Him better will result in me growing up to be a man whose heart will always be grateful & obedient to His ways. That I will live the path He has chosen for me in full surrender. May all the pain and suffering I am going through right now be pleasing to Your eyes, my God.
Something I’ve felt the need to write about is my pen name: Tessa. The most common meaning of the name Tessa is ‘harvester’. I chose it because 1.) I love the name Tessa. 2.) So many people in my life have invested in me and I believe that my life’s purpose is to harvest everything I can get out of it. I want to harvest the hope out of my life and give it out to others. And 3.) I sometimes write about things that are extremely personal to my family, and to protect them, I felt a pen name was necessary.
The strange thing about having a pen name is that it has opened me up in ways that I did not expect. For most of my life, I’ve had this one view of myself - one that was given to me by someone so twisted he has no true identity of his own. And now, through my writing, I have found the identity that God gave me when He died on the cross. I’ve begun to see the little girl that God created and the woman that He designed me to be. It’s a slow road, but each step I take, a chain of my old identity falls off me and I feel like an eagle whose wings are unfolding after too long in a cage.
So, this is me. Tessa. I may not be using my actual name, but in many ways, you all are getting the most authentic ‘me’ I have to offer. Thank you. I appreciate having a space to unfurl my wings.
You never know who in your circle needs to be lifted today. Someone out there is yearning for love and validation. A Broken Body? 💉💊 A Broken heart? 💔 Never forget this: God Heals.

Please spread the encouragement around. Share this post. And also share the link of the memechebs YouTube channel to your friends and loved ones as well. Bless someone today. Much love and have a beautiful rest of the week😘😘😘. #Youtube#linkinbio#GodHeals#OriginalSong#StayStrong
Do You Really Have Faith
by John Michalak
Most have said this at one time or another:
I wish I had more faith!
This was the cry of the disciples. Couldn’t Jesus give them more faith? More strength to believe? But…was their issue about having more faith or about the type of faith they had in the first place?
When Jesus says that the smallest faith can send large trees into the sea, he’s speaking more about quality than quantity. He’s saying that when we ask, “Increase our faith,” it’s very possible we don’t have any true faith at all. Because the smallest amount of true faith in God can accomplish anything.
So, the question we need to ask isn’t, “Increase our faith.” It’s, “Do I really believe?”
True belief in God comes from developing an intimate relationship with Him. From staying close to His Word, making your prayers as much about connecting with Him as wish fulfillment. It comes from remembering the mountains God has already moved in your life.
So, do you really believe? If you don’t, then you can begin to trust God again. Start small. That’s where true faith begins.
Pray: Lord, show me the areas where I don’t truly trust You. Show me how to trust You again.
Who do you really believe in, The Word of God or the word of man?
Praying and demanding a cultural norm whose current carries real love, respect, and equality. The past is the past, but we should all be aware the problem is real-I know it all too well, so I choose not to share the details but I cannot minimize it either. #metoo#Godheals#empowerwomen#strongwomen
This week we will be discussing the miraculous healing angel, Archangel Raphael. Raphael's name means "God heals" and his halo shines an emerald green color. He is also commonly known as Saint Raphael, patron of physicians, medical workers, travelers, and matchmakers. If you are a healer, call on Archangel Raphael to help guide you on your healing path. You can also call on Raphael if you need physical or emotional healing. Even simply picturing emerald green around yourself will be very beneficial for your mind, body, and soul💚 #archangelraphael#angelofhealing#angeloftheweek#emeraldgreen#godheals#spiritcares
✨🌸PERSONAL THOUGHTS 💭 Sometimes, standing up for what is right and not tolerating error is important. But, there are the smaller things in life where I must ask myself.... is it better to be right, or to be kind? And of course we should always be kind! On the contrary, if our prayer on the subject leads us to address a problem with another (and to not let it go in that instance), we can always do it with kindness as well. Either way, we can always always always be kind.
I love the question my Christian Science practitioner asked me when I was a teen... “If Love could speak, what would it sound like?” What I take from that is, if God, Love wouldn’t say it, neither should I.
There have been times where I was healed physically of something just from the Love that was behind someone else’s kindness towards me. Imagine how much our kindness blesses others without us knowing it!
Workin at it everyday. All of us are! Just what I’ve learned from this bible citation. Personal thoughts & prayers today :) .
I was 17 and very gullible. I was at the time going through a depression. I didn't love myself. I had always wanted to please everyone and be liked.
I left my childhood church to go somewhere else because I didn't feel loved. Through that choice, I was taken advantage of by the "pastor of that new church. After taking him to criminal court where he plead guilty for a misdemeanor, and then suing him in the civil court, I learned that he would never change. He would never apologize (which was all I ever wanted). I developed PTSD and trusted no male alone in a church office, let alone anywhere else.
My case can be unique in that many can say, "A pastor? Church? Why would God allow that? If God was present, why did this happen?" But God has allowed me to hurt so that he in turn can heal me and show me the true God of the Bible. He has allowed me to counsel others who have been in this ordeal. I know what its like to be depressed, suicidal. To feel disgusted. I know how it feels when someone says, "why didnt you say something?" You will NEVER know the situation unless you've been through it. I still serve God. I go to a wonderful church with GODLY pastors! God sees the evil and wicked and their day has come. It will come to pass and we will see his glory.
Do not fret. Do not be a victim. You are victorious.
DEUTERONOMY 20:4 #metoo#godheals
Everyday we have to make a choice. Right now God is dealing with me on Anger. Walking in Love. I may not be responding in a hostile way. But I want too. And so this is causing me to have to dig deeper and go deeper with God and say why???? Why did this upset me??? What triggered it??? It's part of our purification. If your only around people that make u smile and laugh, how can we grow?? How would I ever get an opportunity to address issues within me I don't realize I have until that one person comes along and pushes every wrong button, what the enemy meant for bad God will turn for your good. The enemy wants us to become violent and respond in an Un Godly way. But When we make the right choices God says ok Daughter let's deal with this why did that upset you? (Usually connected to some childhood experience) God always has our back. I encourage you to challenge yourself when you feel that anger rising up. And talk to God about it. #anger#Godsnotdead#jesuslives#angermanagment#angry#noweaponformedagainstmeshallprosper#dontgiveup#fight#godheals#godrestores
This Saturday I had an opportunity to dance for a cause at an Acid Attacks Awareness event sponsored by Narvang Dance Academy. In India, there has been many reported cases of men throwing acid on women. One reason but not the only reason has been because the men have felt rejected sexually by the women.
This is far from what love looks like. Praying that the men who committed these assaults would come to know God's heart and that their eyes are opened to love...and to see women as precious beings... Also, praying for the healing for the victims who have physically and mentally suffered.

My sister, Sheila, said when she bought this banig of Pantoloc more than a week ago, “Hindi kita ibibili ng pantapos ng one month coz masasayang lang if sasabihin ng doctor when we visit him na itigil mo na pag-inom nito! Ayan, 8 ka lang!” I only scratched my head but later realized it was very optimistic! Yesterday, I popped my last tablet. So, today, I visited my doctor at PGH for a followup checkup, he said “itigil mo na yang gamot mo!” So, let’s all say it together, “Goodbye, Pantoloc!” #ThankYouLord#Godheals ❤️😊🙏🏻💪
❤❤❤❤❤❤#mondaymotivation @Regrann from @oluwabibs - God will make a way where there seems to be no way- not Man, not Woman...God. In this life you will learn that Man is Man and God is God and Man is not God and God can NEVER be Man. You will hurt and cry and your heart will break over and over. You will learn that some friends are more family than family and some family are the bestest friends you could ever ask for- you would also find some family are better off as strangers. You will find that cause you gave your blood for someone don't mean that person will give pure water for you. Everything is Vanity. 20 years of friendship can hurt you and 20 minutes of friendship can hold you and give you the shoulder you need to cry on and the strength you need. Your happiness can sadden and your sadness can gladden. Life is empty only God can fill the void. Whatever you do, do without expecting in return. Give give give and when you feel like you can't - give again but as you give expect nothing in return. Give because God said give. Give because it is more blessed to give than to receive, Give because you are being an angel. Give because your reward is not to be found in Man but in the almighty. I am thankful dear lord for the angels in my life- for the ones without whom the food would be bland. The ones whom God said "Bibs- This is your friend. You deserve someone this amazing" I love you deeply, thoroughly, completely. You know yourselves. For praying with me, crying with me, laughing with me, being my sounding board. I LOVE YOU! #Bare#Thinking#MyBeforeFriendNowMyBlood#GodHeals#JesusSaves#JehovahSoothes#Mending - Photo by @chyder5 - #regrann
Finally Kuya James is going home! Thanks sa lahat ng nag pray, nagalala at nangamusta sa kanya! Thank you sa Manager ko, sa pagunawa na need ko magleave ng biglaan, sa mga team mates ko na nagalala for me. Sa jowa ko, na grabe ang support sa akin at sa pinagdadaanan namin magina! Thanks sa dalawang Ate ko na present since day 1 ng confinement ni James, sa physical, emotional stressed kadamay ko kayong 2 . Sa Mommy ko na kahit di makadalaw sa ospital dahil sa health condition ay ramdam ko pa din ang support at pag aalala. I'm still blessed to have a very loving and supportive family. Pano kaya kung wala kayo!
And siempre kay Lord, sa di pagiwan sa amin ng anak ko, sa dami ng iniyak at pagtawag ko sayo hindi ka nagsawa! Pinakinggan mo ako, di mo pinabayaan ang anak ko Lord. God is really good!
Be assured, this situation is for the glory of God to be revealed in your life.
One thing we are confident of is that God loves you passionately with an amazing and unending love, and He is daily putting that love on display in your life.
Last Friday, I did a Facebook live session titled OUR COVENANT GOD (PART 2)
We need to bring our life under the control of the Inspiring assurance that we are living in a Covenant Relationship with God who has sworn faithfully to fulfill in us every promise He has made to us.
An understanding of our Covenant Relationship with God gives the assurance that the blessings God promised to bestow on us must, and can, and will be fulfilled.
Covenant gives us a hold on God. It provides what conditions must be fulfilled for us to fully and continually experience the blessings of the Covenant.
Covenant gives us a full knowledge of what God wants to do for us. It also gives the assurance that it will be done by His Almighty power. An understanding of our Covenant Relationship with God will result in a transformation of our whole life.
Watch 'OUR COVENANT GOD (PART 2) on my Facebook page. See my Facebook page name on Image here. You are blessed!
