Jesus, the Vine to my Branch – Episode 17



‘I Love You’. Such a powerful phrase, many expectations, dreams and potential in one phrase.  Depending on the speaker of thes words, the validity and connotation can vary. One thing’s for sure, when God tells us, “I Love You” we can be sure it’s the real deal. As such, we have to ensure that when we face ourselves and say those famed three words, we too are the real deal.

In God we find the vine to our branch, how to we use the love, consitency and faith of the vine to nurture and strengthen our branch with self-love?  This week, Minister Shawn Lawrimore challenges us to build our relationship with God with self-love as a foundation.  This week’s message is supplemented in the devotional “Jesus is The Vine”.  “I am the vine; you are the branches.  If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”  John 15:5 

The vine and the branches form an inseparable unit. We cannot see where the vine ends and the branch begins.  The branch is continually being fed by the vine.  If the branch is cut from the vine, it will wither and die.

You must remain in Jesus like the branch in the vine.  This implies that you will be willing to work on your relationship with Him, that you will grow and become stronger every day, so that you will be able to bear much fruit.  It also means that you will get to know him better, and love Him even more.

White Flags & God’s Plan – Ep 16



How do you get unstuck? How do you beat fear and step out from behind your most miserable season? God say’s “Surrender”.  This week, MInister Shawn Lawrimore is joined by Evangelish Cheryl Banks-Hayes for a discusion on healing through surrender, waving your white flag for God’s plan to manifest through you.  Check out this week’s devotional message, ‘The New Peter’:

But Peter and John replied, “judge for yourself whether it is right in God’s sight to obey you rather than God. For we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.”  Acts 4:19-20

Fortunately Peter’s story does not end in the courtyard of the high priest.  When we read of Peter again, in the beginning of Act, we encounter an altogether different Peter.  His inspiring sermon on the day of Pentecost caused three thousand people to come to repentance. Afterwards, when the Sanhedrin commanded Peter and John not to speak or teach at all in the Name of Jesus, he declared in no uncertain terms that they could not keep quiet about what they had seen and heard.  Read more here.


Dreams & Butterfly’s – Healing with Minister Shawn Lawrimore EP 15



How do you release the traps of your mind and seasons to Faith?  If God has given you a vision, you are equipped to face the butterfly’s that accompany your dreams. God will require you do get up and do the hard work. Faith without works is dead;   James 2:17,

That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties.  For when I am weak, then I am strong. – 2 Corinthians 12:10

The same thorn with which Paul had wrestled so much ultimately became a positive power in his life. It taught him that his own strength was not sufficient for the thorns and stumbling-blocks in his life, but God was.

Without the stumbling-blocks and thorns in your life you risk the danger thinking that you can help yourself, that you do not really need God.  By allowing thorns in your life, God shows you that you cannot manage without Him, that you need Him every day of your life. He makes His power available to you when you are willing to admit your dependence on Him.  Read More Here.

The Valley Of The Shadow of Death – Healing with Minister Shawn Lawrimore – Ep14



In Episode 14 Minister Shawn Lawrimore addresses the important of building a solid relationship with God.  This week’s message, ‘The Valley Of The Shadow of Death’ is strongly rooted in Psalm 23:3-4:  He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.  Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death.  I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 

All our paths sometimes take us through dark places and dangerous valleys’ places where we can’t see God or hear His voice. In all our lives there are times of crisis when it seems as if God is far way and a stronger, as if He is no longer acting like the loving God we are used to.  The psalmist also experienced time like these. In Psalm 10:1 he asks, “Why, O Lord, do You stand far off? Why do You hid Yourself in times of trouble?”

Children of God are by no means exempt from hardship and suffering, but we know that God is with us throughout these times; that He walks with us through the valley of the shadow of death; that He is able to protect us against all dander; that He never lets go of our hands, even though we sometimes pull our hands from His.  And in God’s hands His children are always safe.

You may take this promise with you on your journey through life.. God is there for you in times of crisis, in times of suffering, in times of sorrow.

Even if you are lost in the valley of the shadow of death, you can still be assured that He will lead you safely through every danger, and the you will one day have eternal life with God.

Heavenly Father, it is so wonderful to know that You are with me when I have  to travel through the Valley of the shadow of death; that your hand guides me even there and the You will ultimately lead me safely home.  Amen.


Healing with Minister Shawn Lawrimore & Evangelist Cheryl Banks Hayes – EP 12



In Episode 12 Minister Shawn Lawrimore is joined by Evangelist Cheryl Banks Hayes discussing confession and answering the question, ‘How in the world are you today?’.   We can all agree that confession is difficult because it’s such a vulnerable action.  However, we must remain grounded in his Word and find refuge in the cleansing of transparency through confession.  Let it out and let God.
