Sunday Praise: Our Assignment in God’s Plan


Pastor Jaime Perdomo

“We are chosen from God. Each of us has an assignment from The Lord: to care for his people and send his message. When we fulfill our assignment, The heavens opens up and comes to us closer. He pours his grace onto us.”

Pastor Jaime preached a powerful sermon of his own life story and how one woman twenty years ago did “her assignment” to bring Jaime closer to The Lord. He said I was her assignment, her fruit and now she can walk-in to heaven and have God say to her “Good Work, My Child” What an emotional sermon!

“Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and He saved them out of their distresses. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and broke their chains in pieces.” (Psalm 107:13-14)

I am so blessed to announce that I have finally co-edited of what will soon be the most captivating Domestic Violence story of a woman’s tribulations: “A Woman’s Indiscretions” by Sharine Jones.

Thank you God for protecting her and bringing her into my life to show me my purpose for living and helping people like her–to share their stories of #tribulations and #victory.

Weekly Spiritual Digest: I Will Praise The Lord at All Times


IMG_8320.JPG

I will praise the LORD at all times. I will constantly speak his praises. I will boast only in the LORD; let all who are helpless take heart. Come, let us tell of the LORD’s greatness; let us exalt his name together.
I prayed to the LORD, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears. Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces. In my desperation I prayed, and the LORD listened; he saved me from all my troubles. (‭Psalms‬ ‭34‬:‭1-6‬ NLT)

Today my church gave praise to the Most High. We let go all of our fears and confided our trust in HIM. We lifted our hands and exalted his name together.

Today praise The Lord and constantly speak of his praises.

Weekly Spiritual Digest: Don’t Harden Your Hearts!

“That is why the Holy Spirit says,

‘Today when you hear his voice, don’t harden your hearts as Israel did when they rebelled, when they tested me in the wilderness. There your ancestors tested and tried my patience, even though they saw my miracles for forty years. So I was angry with them, and I said, ‘Their hearts always turn away from me. They refuse to do what I tell them.’ So in my anger I took an oath: ‘They will never enter my place of rest.’”

Be careful then, dear brothers and sisters. Make sure that your own hearts are not evil and unbelieving, turning you away from the living God. You must warn each other every day, while it is still “today,” so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God. For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ. (‭Hebrews‬ ‭3‬:‭7-14‬ NLT)

Like a good son to his father, always listen and never harden your heart. God loves you and what he says is perfect; he has feelings too. We will never understand his great plan, but that doesn’t mean we harden our hearts nor lose our faith in HIM.

Don’t Harden Your Hearts Today! Live and Be Faithful to God till The Very End.

Weekly Spiritual Digest: Find Joy in God’s Commandments [while you work]


IMG_8036.JPG

As pressure and stress bear down on me, I find joy in your commands. Your laws are always right; help me to understand them so I may live. (‭Psalms‬ ‭119‬:‭143-144‬ NLT)

As the pressure and stress of law school bear down on me, I will always find comfort in your commands because your laws are always right for me. Continue to give me wisdom so I may live.

Weekly Spiritual Digest: Live A New Life


IMG_8002.JPG

Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful. (‭Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭12-15‬ NLT)

Live a new life and make allowances for people’s faults. God has forgiven you so must forgive others. When I think of starting a new, I think of butterflies. Butterflies symbolizes love, peace, and rebirth among other things.

So today be thankful, forgive others, and fly like a butterfly.

Weekly Spiritual Digest: Living By The Spirit’s Power


20140824-044725-PM.jpg

So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions. But when you are directed by the Spirit, you are not under obligation to the law of Moses.

When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God. But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things! Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Let us not become conceited, or provoke one another, or be jealous of one another. (‭Galatians‬ ‭5‬:‭16-26‬ NLT)

Whenever I am lost or confused of God’s plan for my life, I will read this verse. The power of the Holy Spirit will never be bound by any law because it is the law–and there is no guilt when you let the Holy Spirit guide your life versus the spirit of sin.

Recognize what is clean and what is dirty. Knowing what you want from life will help you make a clear decision as to what spirit you want to be guided by.

So this week, choose the Holy Spirit and let it guide you to peace and happiness.

Weekly Spiritual Digest: Be Happy In All Things!


20140713-174440-63880885.jpg

Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. (‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5‬:‭16-18‬ NLT)

There’s no time to complain. Count your blessings and be grateful for what you have. When we give ourselves to Christ, we are in his complete care. Life will always bear down on us but never lose faith in Christ or stop praying to HIM. His will is for us to be happy in all things!

Weekly Spiritual Digest: Plant Seeds of Everlasting Life in Heaven

We Harvest What We Plant

Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself. Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important.

Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. For we are each responsible for our own conduct. Those who are taught the word of God should provide for their teachers, sharing all good things with them. Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.

So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith. (Galatians 6:1-10 NLT)

The Book of Galatians, which is found in the New Testament, comes from a letter written by the Apostle Paul. Paul writes to the Galatians to help settle a divided issue in the Galatian Church: If the Galatians should give up their freedom in Christ in order to serve the Law of Moses once again? And in doing so, Paul uses the story of Abraham, who was alive during the time when Law of Moses was administered, to show how his faith in Christ was more justified than the decrees in the Law of Moses.

In this verse, Paul tells the Galatians (as well as us) that we harvest what we plant. In other words, helping those who have sinned, through humility and kindness, without falling into temptation, we are fulfilling God’s purpose in our lives. Not boasting about our work, because we are not that important than anyone else, makes us responsible for our own conduct. And most importantly, not getting tired from performing good deeds will reward us with a harvest of blessings in our lives.

There are benefits from each act, which Paul describes!

When we help one another, shouldering each other’s burdens, while pleasing the Lord, we are actually planting seeds of everlasting life in Heaven. So, when it does come time to harvest our crops, we will reap a harvest of blessings for ourselves and for others too. Remember what Paul says,

“Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.”

So this week, plant seeds of everlasting life in Heaven. Help one another, so your harvest will be filled with blessings!

Weekly Spiritual Digest: Do Not Criticize & Continue To Live For the Lord


20140223-132924.jpg

Accept other believers who are weak in faith, and don’t argue with them about what they think is right or wrong. For instance, one person believes it’s all right to eat anything. But another believer with a sensitive conscience will eat only vegetables. Those who feel free to eat anything must not look down on those who don’t. And those who don’t eat certain foods must not condemn those who do, for God has accepted them.

Who are you to condemn someone else’s servants?

Their own master will judge whether they stand or fall. And with the Lord’s help, they will stand and receive his approval. Those who worship the Lord on a special day do it to honor him. Those who eat any kind of food do so to honor the Lord, since they give thanks to God before eating. And those who refuse to eat certain foods also want to please the Lord and give thanks to God.

If we live, it’s to honor the Lord. And if we die, it’s to honor the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. Christ died and rose again for this very purpose—to be Lord both of the living and of the dead. So why do you condemn another believer? Why do you look down on another believer? Remember, we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. For the Scriptures say, 

“‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bend to me, and every tongue will confess and give praise to God. ’”

(Romans 14:1-4, 6, 8-11 NLT)

In this scripture, Apostle Paul reminds us of Jesus’ teachings: “Do not judge others and you will not be judged. For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged”  (Matthew 7:1-3 NLT)

As children of God we serve only one Master. And as such, we only answer to HIM for our mistakes and our sins. Don’t act as Lord or Master of others just because you feel the need to correct their mistakes or beliefs. Who gave you divine rights to be master of men and women?

So don’t waste your time and energy; judging and condemning those who don’t share your beliefs or morals. Our time and energy is better spent on HIM. God has already accepted those who eat and pray differently than us, so don’t worry about it and enjoy Life! Like a servant to his master we must also learn to respect the wishes of our God and our Lord Jesus Christ. Be loyal and faithful to HIS teachings because HE has given so much onto us–and HIS love is eternal.
