  • My testimony comes directly from our Sunday School Lesson on 9/20/20-God Gives Victory Over the Amalekites-Exodus. 17:8-16. I saw myself as an Israelite with my faith waining at times because of all the difficulties I had been having with my Amalekite-my supervisor. Waining faith and not fully trusting God and his might. My Amalekite was trying to destroy me every step of the way. Trying to take a job from me after 22 years of service that God gave me simply because I asked. She tried to destroy the hindmost of thee; the faint and the weary-Deuteromony 25:18 because I was tired but still trusted God. Even to the point that there was a meeting, which I wasn’t apart of where she stated that either I leave or she leaves. When I had almost given up God held up his mighty hand stepped in and granted her desire. She was reassigned to a different area. BUT GOD!! This struck her like a bolt of lightning as she nor I never saw it coming. Even to the point that I felt sorry for her. When we trust God with all of our hearts all of our souls and all of our minds-All things are possible. Thank you God for removing this Amalekite from my path. BUT GOD!!!. To God be all the Glory!!!!

  • During this pandemic all we had was TIME. I saw and heard about death all around me. 2 patients that were there when I left at 7am were not there when I came back at 7pm. This happened consistently. When this pandemic first happened my continuous prayer was for God to take this-did not want to give it a name-away. Just as he brought in the plaques with the east wind, I prayed continuously for the West wind to take this away. I often thought this was God’s way of keeping us still-to spend time with him-to get to know who he is and what he could do which is what I did! Being on the thick of things I had Strong FAITH that nothing would happen to me!! Thank God- all is well with me As the pandemic began to subside(some) death continued. The death of George Floyd and all the others before him who died unjustly caused us to rise up. Protest riots and destruction around the world-just as the pandemic. Recently while thinking about it all I spoke to one of my Elders. I told her that I thought I was getting closer to God because now and only now I am understanding why certain things in the Bible had to happen before other things could happen. Today, riots and protests had to happen for change to happen. It hit me-I FINALLY got it! What a revelation! I am not where I should/ need to be but the hunger and desire to know is there. Pray my strength and understanding in God. Pray for me. FINALLY!! To God be all the Glory!!!

  • Last night, 7/13/20. my older son and I were laughing about how I use to lay hands on him while he was sleeping. I reminded him that I still pray for him in the same manner. This morning after Sunday school, I began to cry out for my children as the teacher (Elder Sue Washington) was teaching from the Sunday School Lesson, “Samuel’s Leadership Brings Victory (1 Samuel 7:1-12) and began to say how we as the people of God are to pray even the more and cry out for our children. I was immediately unctioned to do exactly that (immediately) and so I did. I began to literally cry out and call out each one of my children’s and grandchildren’s names in the hotel room were I was staying as I needed to come aside with so much going on. By the time I returned home, I got a call that my oldest son Michael was hit by a car while riding on Rivel Motor Bike. Here’s the blessing for obedience, on my way to the hospital, I was told he’s going to be okay. When I got to the hospital he was sitting up with a few scratches like nothing ever happened. People of God there’s a spiritual warfare against our children. Let me just add, all kinds of things have going on with my children that only a selected amount of people know. But God, He continues to cover them and keep them.


  • At the onset of this pandemic, I resolved in my spirit to quiet my soul. I wanted and needed to hear from God! I fasted and prayed, and was in deep intercession as the saints were dying. In fact, death was all around us. That spirit of fear tried to overtake me, but I rebuked it and declared the word of the Lord, “God has not given me a spirit of fear; but of power, love, and a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7. Therefore, I continued to draw near to God, and He drew near to me. I am happy to also report that I am on the last chapter of my new book, an autobiography, hallelujah! Moreover, about a month ago, I was given a recipe in the wee hours of the morning, for a light pastry: Gerri’s Blueberry Blissquuck! God is amazing and when we draw more near to Him, He will impregnate us with something. In everything I give thanks to the Lord, for He has purpose in every pain. TGBTG!

  • He’s a keeper!! I give God all the Glory for the great thing he has done!! When I tell you he’s a mind regulator, and peace in the mist of a pandemic!! The last Sunday I was in service, I was so nerves about this Coronavirus. The enemy was trying to grip me with fear from the very beginning. When I tell you, when you purpose to be delivered it happens. I sat in Sunday School “scared” of the unknown for myself and my family. BUT, as AP Hodge got up and began to exalt the Lord i began to get in God’s presence. To be perfectly honest, I cannot even remember what the word from Pastor was on that Sunday. The one and only thing I do remember was that I purposed that I was going to the Altar and I was going to be delivered from fear before I left the sanctuary. God did just that, I was delivered and it has not returned. I’ve been able to witness to others about his peace, and I can say that working in the Hospital when things have been uncertain, chaotic , insecure and dangerous God has continued to cover me with his peace!! I have to do my part to keep from falling back into fear and I Thank him for keeping my mind stayed on him for he’s keeping me in perfect peace!! Won’t he do it!!

  • “Do It Anyway” Seems just as I make up my mind to do something for the Kingdom or to draw near to God, a distraction occurs to take my focus. This evening (Monday 7-20-20), while washing dishes my spirit speaks saying, “Do it anyway.” You see, on Saturday morning something I am very afraid of threatened to divert my attention. I became anxious, lightheaded, heart pounding, and nauseous. This evening the Spirit reminded me of 1 John 4:4, “Greater is He in me than he that is in the world.” And, to “cast all your anxiety on Him because he cares for you” 1 Peter 5:7. The Spirit once again reminded me to “Do it anyway,” and to resist the devil and he will flee (James 4:7). So I bring my weakness and submit that fear to God. In Jesus’ Mighty Name. Amen!!

  • Today my husband and I took our walk down Lenox Ave, and along the way we stopped in Whole Foods to get some items and then we stopped in CVS where he saw similar items we purchased from Whole Foods for less. We went back to Whole Foods to return the more expensive items. As we were exiting Whole Foods, he realized he left his water at the cash register and went back to get it. As we were leaving Whole Foods once again, he ran into an old friend who appeared to be struggling with addiction and he was being put out the store for stealing food. The two talked for a short bit and departed. As my husband walked away he became emotional over his friend, knowing life had gotten to him. I said honey when we see someone struggling we have to remember to pray for them. I figured we would go home and pray for the brother. Instead, my husband decided he wanted me to pray for his friend in that moment. We went back across the street where his friend was and my husband asked him if he didn’t mind me praying for him. The three of us held hands in front of Whole Foods and we prayed. The brother was receptive, and so grateful that someone saw fit to pray for him. This was a kingdom work moment my husband and I will never forget. Thank You Father!

  • Since 2019 we had ups and downs in our marriage. We didn’t pray together and sometimes not even talk. Things started to change when I got on my knees and asked JESUS to step in and speak to our hearts. The transmission in the car we had went, so my wife caught the bus and train from NJ to work. So I prayed for God’s help. The Scripture says in Matthew 17:20 if you speak and have faith I can move mountains. I prayed for our marriage and to get closer to God. It took some time but I stayed in prayer for my marriage and now we talk, we pray together and this is the blessing: we got the car fixed and have a new 2018 Nissan SUV. Hallelujah, Hallelujah, God is good and just because he blessed us with a new car, doesn’t mean that I’m not going to stop reading. My goal is to get closer to God,  know his word and be connected to my church I thank each and every person that prayed for us and had the heart to reach out to say how are you. THANK YOU LORD JESUS FOR NEVER LEAVING US.

  • COVID-19 came in like a roaring LION ( 1 Peter 5:8 ) devouring any and everything in its PATH. It took no PITY on anyone. Everyone it hit it brought HORRIBLE DESTRUCTION. I’m saying this whatever bad or misunderstood feelings you may have toward someone. Let it go because one day you maybe saying would have, could have, should have made AMEND with that person. Now after all the BODYS and HEARTACHE and DESTRUCTION. COVID-19 is easing out like a QUIET LAMB. Love on them now because the next second maybe to LATE.

  • Mysteries of God 10-6-2020 Jeremiah 33:3 says, “Call to Me and I will answer and show you great and mighty things which you do not know.” There have always been scriptures that have eluded my understanding in which I longed to know the meaning. They were confusing to me. For example: Matthew 11:12 says, “And from the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent taketh by force.” For the life of me I could not understand the meaning of this scripture. It seemed a negative thing to me. Why was heaven, the peaceful perfect kingdom of God, suffering violence and why was violent people forcing their way in?? But the word says in Matthew 7:7, to ask and it will be given to you; seek and you shall find, knock and the door will be opened to you. Praise the Lord! In this season of calamity and chaos many are not as busy as before the pandemic. There has been so much loss both financially, and through death. And many are seeking God and a hope. But the hope that many seek, we only find in Jesus Christ, who is the reason for our hope as believers. So now, I understand that it’s those who seek to gain entrance into the kingdom of God, that are storming the gates of heaven, seeking Jesus Christ. They are the ones taking heaven violently by force. It’s a good thing that is happening. I thank God for understanding.. Luke 24:45 says, “Then He opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures.” God’s word is true. He will answer and show you great and mysterious things you do not know. Thank God for illumination and he’s still doing it. Hallelujah!
