I get a teary eye listening to this song. I think of my dad, my younger brother Romeo, my college best friend Susan and my dearest friend Lani whose lives got cut short before my eyes. Each of them impacted my life in a way that strengthens me to continue to keep my eyes on Jesus' because I long to be with them eternally in the presence of God where there are no more goodbyes.
"I'll hold onto Jesus with all that I have just to see you again..." I wished that I could have told them how much I loved them, then and now. My loving memories of them stay forever in my heart!
Oh, what a great promise that is... 1Thessalonians4:13-1 8KJV
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for you are our God of refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble." Psalms 46:1 KJV

"You are Blessed beyond measure" if you're a resident in any portals of America; been here long enough that you've been enjoying the freedom and liberties of this greatest nation in the world. And most importantly, you & I are truly "Blessed" because we know who holds the future, the Alpha and the Omega; the only Way, the Truth & the Life and his name is Jesus Christ.
All the power is vested in his name by our Abba Father God.
Happy 4th of July, my brothers and sisters in Christ. May the grace & mercy of God , and hid shed Blood be our hedge all around as we celebrate this beautiful day with our families to honor the joy of the freedom to praise His name without the tyranny of doubt & liberal thinking.
"Today is the day that the Lord hath made and we will rejoice and be glad in it.

I've learned of his passing, Pastor Greg Coleman, last night. This is him singing "Healing is here." His almost six courageous years of battling cancer has ended on June 24,2016.
Just like many thousands of souls to whom he had touched with his anointed singing and preaching and shining humility, I'm thankful to God for his life here on earth. His legacy is really how he served God by being a good vessel and servant for bringing lost souls to God's kingdom and for those who are already saved drawing them nigh closer to God. And I'm here to say that I'm a recipient of his legacy of great Faith in the promises of God's Word.
I never question now why physical healing is not for everybody. I believe that spiritual healing for a believer is more important than physical healing. Spiritual healing is the only path to heaven's door. And you can only know that promise if Jesus Christ is the Lord of your life and your personal Savior. That truth shall make you free from any kind of bondage. God breaks all the chains, the cloaks you're wearing and the logs embedded in our eyes if only we surrender our life unto Him.
With everything that is going on in this world, it is very easy to take our eyes off to what Jesus Christ had finished at Calvary Cross more than 2000 years ago. The message of the Cross, unto which all His Grace has dispensed and allowed us to go through the valleys of many challenges gives light to all of our doubts and weaknesses. And with the Comforter, the Holy Spirit is with us is there to see us through. Oh, "we live by Faith and not by sight." And Faith comes by Hearing and hearing the Word of God.
I lift up the family of the late Pastor Greg Coleman in prayer. God's grace abounds!
God and God's angels are rejoicing for this child of God to have finally come home, eternally...his final address with the Lord.
