Do you look at someone who has had a breakthrough in their life and then wonder why they still struggle if their faith is so great? There is a fallacy that says, “Oh if you’re a Christian, and you’ve had all these miracles in your life, then all your troubles are gone and your life is just “peachy” now. Well, let me tell you that peaches also bruise easily! Perhaps you look at people who have accomplished things and then question that they should even have struggles? If you question other people’s walk of faith based on their troubles or successes, then your eyes are not on Jesus. As a Believer in Jesus, can you honestly say that your own life is without struggle either?
Struggles and trials are meant to draw us closer to the Lord, but that’s not all. They are meant to teach us to climb higher, to learn to trust God more and to learn more about how to walk in the measure of faith we possess. Sometimes we wonder why we end up going through certain struggles when we are praying for it to change. There are times when we go through these struggles because God already knows he can trust us to go through it with his grace. He can then use us in a greater capacity.
Each person’s journey will be different, but the lessons we learn are always similar. Many of those lessons teach us to trust God more, to walk humbly, and to walk in the authority we have in Christ. As we go through struggles in life, God uses these lessons to prepare us. What is God preparing us for? He’s preparing each of us to walk in our destiny and our calling, as an overcomer in Christ. Whatever you’re facing, it’s important to remember to take your eyes off others who seem to be doing better than you, or those you question should have greater faith.
The Word of God gives us the instruction we need to change our perspective, and move our eyes from others.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (ISV)
5 TRUST IN THE LORD with all your heart, and DO NOT DEPEND on your OWN UNDERSTANDING. 6 In all your ways ACKNOWLEDGE HIM, and he will make YOUR paths straight.
Step 1 – Trust the Lord Step 2 – Don’t assume you understand or know what’s best Step 3 – Acknowledge him, or consult him for direction Step 4 – Let him lead you. He will make your paths straight.

This is the music video “My Deliverer” by Laurie Marks Vincent. It won a VidWatch Award and two “top ten” nominations with the Artists Music Guild, and Lamplight Film Fest. Most importantly, it has impacted many to hold on and keep believing, reporting back that many received their breakthrough. I pray the song ministers to you then keep reading below.
I’m really burdened to finish the Passion Project to reach the lost. The Passion Project is really a mission or assignment and I know I must finish it before the Lord’s return as a tool of evangelism. The lost will be won for Jesus. God never gives you a dream that fits your budget. He wants us to respond in faith and step forward. I’m stepping forward and believing that God is speaking to many of you to step forward also.
Come to the Cross is an evangelistic song with a powerful story in the song. The song is Phase 1 of The Passion Project and was the result of a vision God showed me and he is leading me now to finish the music production and recording of this “Passion Song”.
Below you will find a video that shares the story behind this song and plans for Phase 2, an evangelistic video. It’s also an appropriate theme, as we are in the season of the Passover. If you have the heart to reach the lost with the message of the Gospel, please consider an offering to partner with me on this project. Thank you & God bless you richly.
Grab a cup of coffee or tea and sit back for a moment. It’s so great to hear from those who regularly follow my posts on Facebook. It has been a ministry of its own apart from all that I do. I do want to thank you for your comments, feedback, and support when I have also needed to be lifted up. This is a friendship across the miles, and around the world. I never would have dreamed of this before and I thank God for you.
Below you will find a FREE Ebook that you can download, that is just a short story, that I’m sure will be a blessing to you. It has mystery, family, love, swords, and spiritual warfare. It’s a message that I pray, will minister to you.
But there’s more ….
Besides posting those encouraging posts on Facebook, this is also an opportunity for you to learn more about what I do and about this ministry.
I’m a Speaker, Singer-Songwriter, Author and Visual Artist. I’ve been working in and weaving through these giftings now for more than 30 years. oh-oh! Did I just reveal my age? LOL My ministry is also a department of ACT International, a registered charity in the United States and Canada.
In addition to the short E-book, below, you will find some links for you to explore, but most of all I want you to know about the most recent project I’m working on.
The new project is called, The Passion Song, Come to the Cross. This is the most important project that I will ever work on because it is the message of the Gospel to the lost. This is only Part 1 of the project. Part 2 includes a video with the song. It will compare to a Passion of the Christ movie in just 5 minutes. I’ll be explaining more about the story and the song later. I promise that you won’t be disappointed if you follow along and support this project. The details can be found here on Facebook.
My Deliverer, the music video
The song “My Deliverer” received two top ten nominations. One from the Artists Music Guild, at the time, hailing from Nashville TN and a second from the Fam Film Fest, at the time that it was taking place in the Carolines, United States. It also won a “VidWatch” Award for Best Independent Artist Music Video.
May you be blessed as you watch it.

I will be sharing a video about the story behind this song next week. It’s also an appropriate theme, as we approach the Passover Season. If you have the heart to reach the lost with the message of the Gospel, please consider an offering to partner with me on this song.
Christmas is a time of celebration. While we celebrate the Christmas season, many warn of its Pagan roots. It’s true that Jesus was not born on Dec 25th. Long ago, the Roman Catholic Church may have designated this date as Christ’s birth, perhaps as a means to distract people from the Pagan practices of the Winter Solstice. There are many clues in scripture and Historians have learned that Jesus was actually born in the Spring. However, there is something wondrous about the love of God. The date does not matter when it comes to behold the Savior. We can celebrate his saving grace, and receive his peace and redemption at any time. Now, at Christmas time, the celebration intensifies because it seems the whole world is waiting, watching and listening for a message of hope. He is the hope that the world is looking for. Use this time, to remind others that he loved us so much that he left his throne in glory, humbled himself and was born as a babe. He made it a mission to spend time with his own creation. Tell people that through his birth, his time on earth and death and resurrection, that he demonstrated his love for us and every single soul, past, present and future, on this earth.
We’re just one week away from this very special event.
It’s an intimate evening of stories and songs, to celebrate the season, held at the cozy Fireside Grill in London Ontario. There will be a Dinner and Fellowship time at 6:15 pm and a concert at 7 pm. The deadline for Advance tickets to order the meal has passed, and all other ticket obligations are only as you are able to pay, since all funds go to The Blessing Fund to help families in crisis situations. I hope to see you there.
I’m really excited to share this song with you. There is quite a story and a journey for me personally behind this song and why I wrote it. I hope to share this story when the timing is right. I’m also very thankful for the opportunity to record this song and really appreciate the support of Life 100.3, Canada’s Christian Superstation, that sponsored this recording costs of this song. All the glory belongs to God.
This is a simple lyric video for the song Everyday Miracles. I pray you’ll enjoy it and find it a blessing.
