In Episode 29 Minister Shawn Lawrimore reminds of the power of self-care and communion with God. We must remain grounded in His Word and find our breath through him. We all face challenges in our lives that can distract or derail us. The true challenge is to face those speed bumps and continue along the path that God has paved for us. Practice self-care daily, take care of your health (emotional, physical, financial, mental, etc) and commune with God. The quality of the relationship with yourself and God will determine how we show up in all other relationships. Stay strong and connected beloved.
Minister Lawrimore is taking a much deserved Self-Care day and invites you to listen to episode 12, with guest host Evangelist Cheryl Banks Hayes. New episode drops next week. Peace and blessings.
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.

As a Child, I loved Popeye cartoons. Those spinach-eating scenes, where a can of the green stuff morphed into big biceps, always made me giggle. Nothing is funny, however, about the health risk of muscle-building steroids. From liver damage and high blood pressure, to infertility and mood shifts, clear dangers face abusers of such drugs.

Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation. – Philippians 2:14-16
The trick to finding quality in your life is in your attitude-how you look at life, whether you see the glass half full or half empty. One day two prisoners looked to the outside world through the same prison window: One saw the mud of the previous night’s rain and the other the blue sky and he praised God for another day. Their attitude determine what they saw.
Episode 23 is very special because we are celebrating 6 months of the podcast! In this episode, host and Minister Shawn Lawrimore reflects on the process of birthing Bridging the Gap. If you’ve been enjoying the messages of love, connection, purpose and encouragement from this community, get comfortable to hear the origin story and this week’s message.
Shawn penned a message of devotion this week, titled, ‘Love Must Be Sincere’ which begins, “Children of God are recognized by their love for God and for each other. Paul tells the Christians in Rome that their love must firstly be sincere. All of us are usually so busy with our own things that we have precious little time and attention left for other people. This is one of the reasons why our love is not always sincere. We pretend to be interested in other people’s problems, while we actually only care about our own problems.
The original Greek text refers to an actor wearing a mask. Sincere love is therefore love without a mask. It is a love that is genuine and sincere, a love that puts others first, so that my own interest are less important. In ourselves we are not capable of such a love, because it is the type of love with which God lies us. God is love and only He can teach us to love like that; to see other people as He sees them; to look past the faults and shortcomings and love the people behind them.” Read the entire message here.
This week, Minister Shawn Lawrimore is joined by Darnetta Allen-Skidmore to explore the importance of quietness and stillness during healing to allow the uninterrupted word of God to lead your thoughts and actions. Darnetta is the author of July’s Book Club selection, “Hush While I Heal” available to purchase here. Shawn & Darnetta dive into the book to gain additional insights to strengthen your resolve as you move from broken to healed.
Darnetta Allen-Skidmore is a prophetic intercessor, counselor, mentor, psalmist, teacher, and a mother. The Lord gave her a vision to establish Infinite Order Prophetic Ministry and DAS Ministries, the ministry of intercession in 2012. She has birthed it out and continues to build. She resides in Belle Rose, LA with her two children. Darnetta states that “Life may cause you to mature, by the struggles you face. But, God is always in the middle of the developmental phase for your purpose is at hand.”
Minister Shawn Lawrimore discusses road of rejection, the role it plays in our lives building insecurities, fostering the idea of no and facing it head on. Guest writer, Wendy Freeman pens this week’s devotional message, “Wake Up My Love”.
At what age do you learn self-love? Is it when your parents tell you how cute you are? How about when family members tell you who you resemble, and who has what feature? Did you learn what self-love was inside of your home at all? Growing up in a Christian family, did you learn what self-love was based on what the bible said? The issue in families is that we are not taught self-love until faced with insecurities due to bullying, gender stigma, or body image and weight stigmas. Thus causing some people to look for love in other places, lacking the wisdom to recognize what love really is.
In a nutshell, self-love is viewing you the way God sees you. God knew you and loved you before your mother carried you in her womb. As much as I love my children, I would not even attempt to count the numbers of hairs on their heads…but guess who knows? God does! God chose to create you! God chose to sacrifice His only begotten son for you! As children of God, do you understand that sacrifice alone means that we are heirs of God!? We are heirs of true and divine royalty! Read more.
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.

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.
In Episode 13 Minister Shawn Lawrimore addresses the unnecessarily suffering from inferiority complexes that plagues the thoughts of many women. This week’s message, Faith & Your Self-Image is strongly rooted in Psalm 100:3: Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people.
Many People suffer unnecessarily from inferiority complexes. We have not yet learned that faith has a lot to do with the way you see yourself. Although we are small and insignificant when measured against the magnificent God, He created us. We are people created in His image and we belong to Him.
Women who believe in God need never suffer from an inferiority complex. You are special because God “doesn’t make no junk” somebody once rightly said.
You are special to God. In the whole world there is not a single other person just like you. What God thinks of you is more important than what you think of yourself.
To know how highly God thinks of you, you can just go and read your bible. It is written that your are the you are the apple of His eye, that He knows you by name, that you are precious to Him, and that He looks after you always. You are precious to Him, He looks after you, helps you and protects you. He promises to be with you always. You are indeed, created in His image and are His representative here on earth.
Thus, God wants you to love yourself, to feel good about yourself. Whenever you feel inferior again, think about how positively and highly God regards you.
Heavenly Father, is is wonderful to realize the I have been created in your image and that You love me. Thank you that I need never feel inferior again. Amen
