In the famous words of Salt n Pepa, “I think the sound will make you, word up I swear you got to, get up, everybody get up”! The sound of Peace, when you could care less about what people think anymore. The sound of joy, when what use to hold you hostage no longer can. Jesus Got Up from the sound of love for me and you and victory over the sin of this world. Happy Resurrection Sunday Sisters and Brothers. Get up, don’t let nobody hold you hostage to what you did yesterday. Tell guilt that there is therefore no condemnation to them that are in Christ. Serve shame notice, Jesus has already set me free and my faith in Him shall not make me ashamed. I know it’s easier said than done, but I was in church for so long and this truth never registered until now. I was so blinded and consumed with trying to be sure that others were happy with me. Sometimes it’s difficult to hear the truth of God’s word, when your mind is set on your own issues and how unworthy some people have made you feel. A shift has to take place in our lives or in our minds in order to receive what the Spirit of God is saying. I am thankful sometimes for the calendar of man, because it helps to shift our mindsets. Even in this pandemic, there has been a shift. If you are a new visitor to our blog, just know; I have come to offer you hope! You do not have to stay where you were before all of this began let alone 5 or 10 years ago.
Resurrection Sunday and COVID19 is a great pair to shift your thinking. Right now, the blood that was shed; has washed away all of the issues you believe have separated you from God’s love and acceptance. Just believe it, and it’s done! He already knows what you did, He already knows what you said and He is not ashamed you. Regardless to what man has said to you, you are an heir to God’s forgiving heart and His love. The journey has just begun, and you’re going to make mistakes along the way; but don’t let it separate you from the Love of God! Stay in there, by faith, stay in there! You have been crowned with victory, you are an heir! Get up and stay up!
It’s funny how I started out with the rap trio, Salt n Pepa and the one and only Spin. But they wouldn’t be the trio without Spinderella. The Holy Trinity would not be one without the other. The Father, our creator who sent His Son Jesus Christ and The Holy Ghost which brings the sound from the inside of us. The sound that keeps us connected. If Salt n Pepa had no sound, that song would not have made you “Get Up”.
Love Always, Carla Mashell Dulaney
