Please just keep me in your prayers as I study for my GED. I have before July 25th to take the test and pass it... so if you think of me, just pray! Thanks:-)

Quote for the Day

"When you are hurting,and you think about God's greatness, what a change it makes in your perspective when you remember this: The great 'I AM' cares personally and deeply for you. He exists beyond the stars, yet He knows every hair that falls from your head and every tear that drops from your eyes. When you grieve, he is grieving with you. When you are confused, He doesn't laugh at your confusion. He is with you right there, arms around you, ready to take you, if need be carry you, safely through the fog. He is Yahweh, the God who makes and keeps His covenants and promises."

So buy it cause my Dad's the GREATEST!!!! If you want to, check it out at the IHOP MP3 Store online or the bookstore!!

My favorite song on this album is Paper Religion!!! I could listen to that song and NEVER get tired of it... the day I got the CD, I kept repeating the same song (Paper Religion) over and over again for about an hour, and my mom and dad were like, "Telma, could we please listen to a different song, bu I just couldn't listen to a different song. So, I just burned the disc unto my laptop and listened to it with my headphones on cause that song is INCREDIBLE!!!! So, I highly recommend y'all buy it!! It will bless you;-)


My summer is going to be busy! First, we are gonna be hosting 5 to 6 girls, plus me and my 4 sisters (ya, WOW). So, there'll be 12 girls including my mom... our house will be packed with girls (poor dad!!)
Brent has asked me to make ALL the copies for STI, including making sure all the preachers are there (MP) on time and taking care of their needs... so, that's gonna be fun!! In the midst of all that, I just got my GED book, so, I'm gonna be studying alot (I have to finish the whole book by the end of June). So, I am going to try hard! I'm asking the LORD to give me grace!! But ya, I am gonna be busy this summer!

Warning a Wicked and Perverse Generation Part2


Jesus said that in the end times it would be "as in the days of Noah were." When I read the story of Noah I not only read: "that they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage" but also that "the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." Is it not in our day? Men with such depraved wicked minds, sin soaked, sex soaked, so that nothing is pure anymore! The same wickedness that crucified Jesus is resident in the hearts of men in this generation. Gen. 6:6 "The Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart." Does it grieve the heart of the Lord today that "he had made man?" What type of wickedness would it take to wish we never birthed a child? How wicked does that child need to be in our sight, how repulsive? The scripture continues: "Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence." When God's eyes looked upon the earth it says: "for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth." What a frightening picture, of men that have ruined themselves. A selfish, violent, wicked culture! A God-rejecting culture. This is where we find ourselves. We are comfortable with sin in our day, we call "good, evil and evil, good!" And woe unto us! We want a nice, pretty picture of the world and our goal is to simply share with people "God loves you." Could you imagine Noah preaching "God loves you" with a big smile on his face to that wicked generation. Do you think Noah hanged a sign on the ark saying "God loves you?" We are going to stand before a holy God that has called us to preach repentance to men with our lives and words. Noah was a repentance preacher, firstly that he separated himself from the whole wicked world system, and secondly in his preaching he shared that message. The church cannot preach the true gospel until they have fully repented and are living in that reality. A separated church is the only Church! God is calling men to be separated unto His will from our rotten dirty selfish wills. Hebrews 11:7 says: "by the which he (Noah) condemned the world." He condemned the world by living righteousness and staying pure amidst the moral landslide around him.

As also was in the days of Lot... so will it be just the same on the day that the Son of Man is revealed... Luke 17

Warning a Wicked and Perverse Generation


A wicked and perverse generation seeks after a sign. A carnal, lukewarm, lax, unbelieving Church sits back and demands of God the supernatural to give value to His credibility. The spotless bride often looks more like a self-absorbed whore. Dennis E. Green said: "We feast on the bounty provided by our husband while neglecting his wishes that don't excite and please us. We seek to be fulfilled by our selfish pursuits rather than by serving Him." An untoward perverse generation seeks pleasure before God. The words of Scripture speak to our day "lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God(2 Timothy 3:4)." God said when this happens it would be the "last days." This is a generation of men that have plugged their ears shut and are shutting their vanities and filth loudly. There is no more restraint in the world, not more culture or virtue in dealings. Even the most dignified actions of men are plagued with the continually thoughts of their wicked perverse minds. Those who are walking apart, walking in holiness with God are a reprove this whole bankrupt system of evangelical Christendom that we see. The simple life of one who has fully counted the cost and has fully surrendered to Christ will be a reprove to the church and the world. There is a sleeping world and a sleeping church that needs to be awakened. A.W. Tozer said: "Religion today is not transforming people; rather it is being transformed by the people. It is not raising the moral level of society; it is descending to society's own level, and congratulating itself that it has scored a victory because society is smilingly accepting its surrender." May we be "salt" and "light" in the world bringing preservation and exposure to the persuasive wickedness in men's hearts.

Talk About Being Sick!!

I've had this horrible cough since last Thursday (and a bit of a fever...but) and I HATE it! I feel bad for those who get sick constantly... I feel their pain. I mean, this is my first in 3 years, but imagine those who are sick constantly... it's kinda sad. Not fun either! I got my sickness from my little sisters... it went from Sophie, KK, my dad and than me... now I have a fever (it's going away), a cough, and a runny nose... don't y'all kinda feel bad for me... I mean I am playing the keys on stage (at IHOP) with a runny nose... Like last Sunday, we were aired in Asia, and I couldn't stop making faces trying to keep my snots in so it doesn't accidentally run down... lol! But ya, I hate being sick... don't you?
