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.

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 – EP 13



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
