SEE Your Sister...She Holds a Candle Without a Flame..



This video of a pastor in Uganda brought me to tears....
tears of conviction and grief. I encourage you to listen...but allow time...it is a full 1 1/2 hours. Thanks to Kareem for posting the video. 

Oh my... was he right on... we are so unworthy of God's love... but he loves us still.... loved us even in our 'practicing' sin... 

Some people sin out of ignorance to the scripture... and of lacking a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.... and therefore have not entered into a 'renewing' of their mind... allowing the Lord Jesus to change their thot patterns and behavior from a 'self' gratification lifestyle...to the 'selfless' life ...of walking with the Savior, on a path that He created for us to walk...pure and unadulterated by the world's ways. 

This world...is cursed, as a result of the original sin. We are all therefore born into sin...thus the need to be 'reborn' by the pure spirit of God. Therefore, these 'beautiful ones' still walk...live under the 'curse' of man....because of their 'lack' of understanding God and His intentions towards them. 

 She your sister...she's been robbed and lied to.
She holds a candle without a flame.

It is for these... that He died. He died for you and me...that we not perish in our sin...but have everlasting life...with HIM. I was just like 'these' blinded ones...before the LIGHT of JESUS was brought to me and my eyes were opened by the LIGHT of TRUTH. 

The LORD puts these beautiful ones...in 'our' paths every day ...(those of us who have received His restorative salvation)... He plants them in our hearts...because we see that their eyes are still veiled to the light of Christ. Only the Holy Spirit of God can woo a soul unto Himself...but He calls us to be LIGHT in this dark world... 

Sometimes, all that is expected of us is to walk into a place...a room...a region... a dark alley... and let the LIGHT of Christ that reigns in authority over our own life....LIGHT up the darkness with our one little candle. 

 I came to know Him Early,
I came to know Him young.



Sometimes... He requires more from us. He sends us into the world...to minister to these walking without sight. He loves all mankind... and wishes that none would perish... our world begins first of all in our homes...but extends and engages on a larger scale - the moment we walk outside our front door!  

We, as Christians are called to be LIGHT to the nations, peoples of the world... that walk without the LIGHT of Christ. 

This pastor's testimony is full of LIGHT. 

I respect his heart for the nations and the peoples of the world. God has unveiled his eyes to reveal his own hidden heart... in ignorance...it was even hidden from himself. This personal encounter with the LORD...brought him to his knees. He will never be the same! 

Praise be to the LORD Almighty....for His GRACE and MERCY..


 Heaven and Earth have kissed

Harmony has been restored in this one man's heart...his testimony is proof of that. Hard message to speak...but his transformed heart compels him to hold his candle brightly for all to see. 

Christians....as well as unbelievers everywhere...as a result of viewing this video, should feel compelled to enter into a heart to heart closed closet meeting between themselves and GOD....with a unanimous heart cry... 

'Search me oh God...and see if there be any wicked way in me...cleanse me...and create in me a clean heart, I pray " 

This has been my cry...throughout these past days in this 'Post Election' state of affairs...it was set ablaze by the message of this pastor's testimony....this cry is for myself and those yet to see the LIGHT....

"Father, forgive us...heal us... restore us... back to a right relationship with you. You alone, are worthy of our praise...cause us...compel us to carry your LIGHT in us to LIGHT another's candle...without a flame." 

Go Light Your World

Oh Lord God...may I experience a like encounter with you... a transforming encounter that changes me so completely... that I walk unchained...freely carrying my lighted candle... into the dark places of my world....

May I walk without FEAR...without the fear of hatred lashed against me or being ostracized because of my chosen obedience...to carry His LIGHT. 

May I walk with LOVE ...and view everyone as God's beautiful creation...

I am so blessed to be called His Beloved... 
Beautiful one... 
Warrior Bride in boots. 

I can't explain the emotion that rises up in me... every time I hear this song.  The first time I heard it, I stood to my feet, as I felt His LIGHT reignited in me. The Holy Spirit fanned the flame with His blazing Spirit. This song, as Kathy Troccoli sings it...connects His divine will to mine...with such an empowering force...I am no longer just ...one little candle. 

For this is what the Lord has commanded us:
 "'I have made you a light for the Gentiles, 
that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.'"
Acts 13:47


I am one flame connected to a blazing FIRE....that pushes the darkness away!

He, the Lord God Almighty, remains on the throne! 
Still...Always... and for eternity... 
He is the KING of all Kings.... Psalm 2

Listen...with conviction...and GO LIGHT YOUR WORLD!






Psalm 2

The Message (MSG)

1-6 "Why the big noise, nations?
Why the mean plots, peoples?
Earth-leaders push for position,
Demagogues and delegates meet for summit talks,
The God-deniers, the Messiah-defiers:
“Let’s get free of God!
Cast loose from Messiah!”
Heaven-throned God breaks out laughing.
At first he’s amused at their presumption;
Then he gets good and angry.
Furiously, he shuts them up:
“Don’t you know there’s a King in Zion? A coronation banquet
Is spread for him on the holy summit.”

7-9 Let me tell you what God said next.
He said, “You’re my son,
And today is your birthday.
What do you want? Name it:
Nations as a present? continents as a prize?
You can command them all to dance for you,
Or throw them out with tomorrow’s trash.”

10-12 So, rebel-kings, use your heads;
Upstart-judges, learn your lesson:
Worship God in adoring embrace,
Celebrate in trembling awe. Kiss Messiah!
Your very lives are in danger, you know;
His anger is about to explode,

But if you make a run for God—

you won’t regret it!"

Prayerfully submitted
