"Don't worry about being popular, just be Biblical" 

While praying for the Body of Christ. The Lord spoke this to my spirit and I wanted to share this with you. "Don't worry about being popular, just be Biblical (ShakinaPoet)."

John 15:18-25 (NIV) 18 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. 20 Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’[a

Beauty for Ashes 

Beauty for Ashes:

Written by Shakina Small

Daily Devotion

How can something beautiful come out of the ashes?

Some people are mourning after the ashes that is left of their lives? They believe that all has been lost and nothing can be repaired out of the ruins of what caused the ashes is the first place. The ashes could be the cause of losing a job, losing a love one, battling sickness, losing precious items, loss of relationships and list goes on. Thoughts of suicide swiftly raced through their head like an…

When helping others hurt. 

When Helping Others Hurts

In His human state, he had limitations that prevented him from being able to get to everyone that cried out.

Recently, I was in a situation where I was trying to help…

We went back and forth on this matter and I reminded them of how I do much more for them. My…

Running to a Child's Needs 

On Thursday morning while driving to work, my fiancé and I saw a young girl getting beat, while other kids stood around and watched. I hurried to put the car in park, so we could break it up. We probably weren’t thinking clearly, but the first thing that came to mind was what if that was my child. One of the hardest things in life is being a teenager. Some kids have to fight before school, in school and after school. It seems as if none of the schools are safe anymore. If it’s not the kids, it’s the adults…
