Loneliness During the Holidays


The holiday season is a time of giving, cherishing time with family and friends–the epitome of hope and joy.  But let us remember that while we are enjoying the fruits of the holiday’s there are some who smile while inside they are hurting–because to them, the holiday season is synonymous with the passing of loved ones, lost relationships, or dark childhood memories. Loneliness is the only prison where we sentence ourselves and voluntarily carry out that punishment.  It’s a difficult place when we position ourselves to sit in areas of desolate solitude with the responsibility of nurturing ourselves—hoping the holiday season will end with haste.

If you are wrestling with the seeming insoluble virus of loneliness, know that there is a cure. And the cure isn’t some mystery that only can be obtained by in-depth counseling or seminary…but it involves a willingness to be guided down a path towards a healthy and wholesome you.Loneliness is cured by a bold desire to reclaim your life despite your circumstance, to acknowledge that God is right beside you despite your individual situation or what others may tell you.
Remember that God is right there to pick you up and mount up as wings on eagles, where you will run and not be weary you will walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31)

 Deuteronomy 4:31 (New International Version)
31 For the LORD your God is a merciful God; he will not abandon or destroy you or forget the covenant with your ancestors, which he confirmed to them by oath
1 Samuel 12:22 (New International Version)
22 For the sake of his great name the LORD will not reject his people, because the LORD was pleased to make you his own.

Psalm 27:10 (New International Version)

10 Though my father and mother forsake me,
the LORD will receive me.

Psalm 31:7 (New International Version)

7 I will be glad and rejoice in your love,
for you saw my affliction
and knew the anguish of my soul.

Psalm 46:1 (New International Version)

1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.

Psalm 55:22 (New International Version)

22 Cast your cares on the LORD
and he will sustain you;
he will never let
the righteous be shaken.

Psalm 112:4 (New International Version)

4 Even in darkness light dawns for the upright,
for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous

Psalm 147:3 (New International Version)

3 He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds.

Get Right or Get Out!

, , ,

This 105th Holy Convocation proved to be an inspirational mediums of sorts. Not only was this election year and members were campaigning for their leaders auxiliary leaders but the air of anticipation was tangibly thick as both seats for United States Presidency and the Holy Seat of Presiding Bishop elections ran parallel.

Perhaps one of the most memorable high lights is Presiding Bishop and Chief Apostle’s declaration against pedophila. In a daring and commanding way on Official Day, November 11, before more than 15, 000 members in the Edwards Dome and over 1 million viewers online at COGICISLIVE.COM, Bishop Blake served notice saying, “this will NOT be tolerated.  Our Children should be safe in our churches…either GET RIGHT OR GET OUT!”

Members stood to their feet and agreed with a resounding roar. Now is the time to lift our beliefs to another standard and “shake the world for Jesus Christ!”  Catch a quick snippet below!

Blake delivered a Spirit filled sermon, entitled Grow. Bishop encourages us that is better to do ANYTHING than to stand still.  God’s people has a need to grow and an urge for the Lord to grow.

Number Your Days

, , ,

Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake preaches a thought provoking sermon on his birthday, August 5, 2012. “Every person on Earth needs to number their days,” urges Bishop Blake, “and set goals as to where they want to be in their life.”  Bishop Blake then goes to explain where he wanted to know what he wanted to do for the rest of his life by the time he was thirty. “And in 1968, the Spirit of the Lord saw fit to bring me to little church on Adams Boulevard and I’ve been here ever since.”

Ask yourself, “Where do I want to be?”  Now is the time to write a schedule, make goals and stick to them.  Proverbs 28:19 says, “write the vision and make it plain on tablets.”  We stand on God’s word and believe that as soon as you put pen to parchment, God is going to shift and work in your life.

How to be a Person After God’s Own Heart

, , , ,

When we are diligently seeking God, we open ourselves up to His blessings and his favor. In this sermon, Bishop Charles E. Blake gives us the example of Saul, a person who never changed even though there were elements of evil in his character that he was aware of. Bishop Blake tells us that when we change our attitudes and depart from the things that separate us from God, we can change our destiny and fully receive His blessings. We must strive to be more like God and truly become a person after God’s own heart; those that do are prosperous and, as Bishop Blake says, get moved to the front of the line.

We all have times where being a person after God’s own heart is difficult. What are some things you try to remember in those times? Share with us below!
