By Michele Benson

The Free-spirited, fun loving and Fabulous Ms. Karima Trotter, a loving Mother, Gospel Recording Artist, and a Business Owner. She is apart of the Dove Awarding-winning, Steller and Grammy-nominated gospel music group Virtue. I had been a Fan of hers and Virtue since their first Self-titled album back in 1997. Even though I loved just about every song the ones that stood out to me the most was “Angels Watching Over Me”! It had me in tears of joy, and it comforted me and brought me closer to God! And who can forget “Put your War Clothes On.” girl, I had it on repeat!! I absolutely loved  their Album “Virtousity” that was released  back in 2001, had the whole entire album on repeat! And I thought the girls were so gorgeous on the cover looking like angels!

On February 26, 2016, she and her beautiful sisters Ebony and Heather released an Album called Fearless. This album they kept their roots and originality but added a new generation twist to it. I love “Walk It Out, and You Are.” they are my favorites on this album. If you haven’t already, please get it, you won’t be disappointed!

Ms. Karima has many talents, not only can she sing she can cook! She started a Homemade Soup Company named “That Soup Chic,” I remember when she shared her very touching and inspiring testimony about it on Facebook, she makes her soup with local fresh veggies and uses organic poultry and with some added love! If you follow her on Instagram as I do, you will also enjoy her post; they are full of life and inspiration with a kick! She recently started a Faith-based women’s blog on Instagram called “Make It Rain Sunshine” where she uplifts and encourages women about life, dating, fashion, health and beauty, and faith! If you are looking for Down to Earth Fun with a side of realness, follow her Blog!

I’m Salty before and after Coffee

Witnessing. by Michele

I will always be in the mood to minister. Michele

We always have to be in the mood to witness and minister, the Bible said in season and out of season

While in Memphis TN, I had several people tell me that they liked my shirt, “I’m salty before and after coffee.” The spirit told me to ask someone randomly what the shirt meant to them and also that it would be a great opportunity to witness, So I asked a young lady at a restaurant to read my shirt, and I asked her what did she think the shirt meant, she said: “I think it means you’re moody all the time?” I said no, that’s not what it means, so I proceeded to tell her what it (really) meant. When the young Lady gave me her answer, I told her what inspired me to create the shirt.

The shirts inspiration came from Matthew 5:13 and my love for coffee along with a sense of humor. I said the Bible has a scripture in Matthew 5:13 that talks about us being salty, that we are the salt of the earth, that we should season others peoples lives with telling them about the salvation of Jesus. So with her saying the word moody it prompted me to do a message about we should always be in the mood to witness when God leads us. The worlds salty is moody, Gods salty is being in the mood to minister at all times.

We as Christians should always be in the mood for witnessing; the Bible states that we should minister in season and out of season. 2 Timothy 4:2 NLT. “Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching.”. We should always be in the mood to help someone in need. I also want to state that in Matthew 5:13. “You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless.” In other words, let us make our Salvation count by doing what Jesus did, help save someone. They might not like the truth, but as long as you are saying it in love, its ok. In closing, I’m going to give you the truth before and after I’ve had my coffee, lol!

 

Be Blessed, Michele

What makes God Happy makes me happy. Michele Benson

 

Happy Blessed Monday Loves❤

What makes God happy makes me happy.
Michele Benson

Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you.
Psalms 37:4‭-‬5 NLT

Message:

This is what our hearts should say “Jesus makes me happy and complete; my desires are his desires”. In saying this you just opened up your soul to Gods unmeasurable blessings and love. Gods desire is for us to be satisfied and complete in him. When I delight myself in God, I’m enjoying his love, peace, and happiness. See if you want what God wants you’ll want for nothing. To have God is to have everything you need. To take delight in the Lord means to find pleasure in him and all that he does and have to offer. Our commitment to our Heavenly Father should be one of great joy. Whatever makes God happy we ought to feel the same way about it. The scripture also says godly contentment is a great gain, being content with what God wants and what God gives. We are to view doing Gods will as a privilege and blessing to our lives.

Disappointment has been canceled. #quotemebook

Happy Blessed Tuesday Loves❤

“Disappointment has been canceled.” Michele

“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying if your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be complete and entire, wanting nothing.” James 1:2-4

Message- in life we all are going to encounter some type of disappointment, but he can’t stay disappointed forever. You can’t defeat the devil being disappointed all the time. Disappointment is a distraction, a distraction to keep us depressed and defeated. The Bible tells us to “count it all joy” when we are being tested. The test that we go through builds our faith and helps us to be patient. Being patient equals being complete with contentment. Don’t allow things to keep you upset, do something about it or do nothing at all. Have peace about the situation and move on. #word #shortblog #encouragment #disappointment #quotemebook #faith #live #love #moveon #sucess #trustgod #blessed #quotemebymb #quotestoliveby #womenwhoblog #ministry

Grateful Child

Grateful Child

by Michele L Benson

Scripture Reading

“And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” Luke 2:10-11, 14 KJV

As we celebrate this Christmas Season, I do have one question to ask you “Are you grateful for the gift that God has given?” He sent his only Son Jesus into the world to save us. We as Parents and Grandparents try our best to give our children the best, (deserving or not) we buy them gifts. We will stop at nothing thing to make sure they have, even if it means saving, working long hours, maxing out our credit cards, getting loans, going debt and etc.…
And for your child to get mad and upset and don’t show any appreciation for the gifts we have bought them it would be a shame before God for them to show that type of behavior. I believe that we would be pretty angry at the fact they didn’t appreciate the hard work or the sacrifice we’ve made for them in getting those gifts. In saying that, let me share with you the reason why we should be a GRATEFUL CHILD; God paid a massive debt by giving his Son to die for our sins. Jesus Was born to die for all mankind.
It is sad to say that half the time we are not grateful for Gods gift his Son. What I mean by not being thankful is that we don’t accept Jesus Christ into our hearts as our Lord and Savior, He is our gift of life. We say that we claim Jesus but never tell others of his goodness less known the good news of the gospel. Jesus is a gift to be shared. Imagine how God and Jesus both feel about us not appreciating the fact that he gave his life for us to be free. Jesus came to earth and dedicated his whole life for the purpose of redeeming us back to the Father. I am grateful that Jesus was born.

IMG_20171205_130125
I am grateful that Jesus took my place on Calvary’s Cross. Let’s not let it be all about receiving presents but about accepting the presence of Gods Son. Without Christ coming into this world and dying on the Cross, it wouldn’t be no Christmas. As his creation, we have to do better by showing our gratitude for all that he has done for us. Don’t take for granted that God gave his Son and his Son gave his life, and they both gave us the gift of power the Holy Spirit. This is the time we celebrate our present from God, his Son baby Jesus. When you open up your gifts on Christmas morning, say a quick prayer showing gratitude towards the real reason for the season. Show the world how grateful you are for Gods gift to the world.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for sending your Son to die for my sins. Jesus, thank you for dying for my sins. Thank Heavenly Father for all that you have done for my family and me throughout this year. Lord, I am your Child, and I am grateful! Amen and Thank God.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us,

Ephesians 2:4 ESV

“But God situation” T-shirt design was given to me by the Holy Spirit and right away I remembered the scripture from the Bible. We all are in a “But God situation”, if it had not been for the Love of God and his mercy towards us where would we be? Every day we see His grace working in our lives. God has saved us from the seen and unseen situations that could have caused us harm. We often hear others testify and say ” But God!….” every time  when a situation could of end up being a Tragedy but He turned it around! Glory to God!!

Also, Remember this Loves to give all of your problems, pains and imperfections to God, he’s the only one who can handle it! It’s God’s situation, not yours.

Be Blessed Loves, Michele 😘

Slay Saved by Michele

I kill my flesh daily so I can “Slay Saved”. Michele

For if you live by its dictates, you will die. But if through the power of the Spirit you put to death the deeds of your sinful nature, you will live.
Romans 8:13 NLT

And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching.
Titus 2:7 NLT
