Welcome to Today’s Word with Sheila D. Currie Blake

Christ’s Pattern

“Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.” 1 Timothy 1:16 It is funny how we can read the Bible a million times over and the very verse that you haveContinue reading “Christ’s Pattern”

Forgive Yourself Too

“And when Joseph’s brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us all the evil which we did unto him.” Genesis 50:15 Joseph’s brothers had done him the unthinkable and naturally, after they sold him, they thought that he was dead and who wouldn’t?  So,Continue reading “Forgive Yourself Too”

The Reason Why

“For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 3:14 We just celebrated Easter which is said to be the most important time in the lives of all Christians (and rightfully so). Today we are forever grateful for what Christ did for us. He gave up his lifeContinue reading “The Reason Why”

He Has The Cure

“Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth.” Jeremiah 33:6 God spoke to Jeremiah and told him his plans for Israel and Judah. He outlined their iniquities and he also outlined his intentions towards them. God is a GodContinue reading “He Has The Cure”

The Falling and Rising of Christians in A Pandemic

“For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again, but the wicked shall fall into mischief.” Proverbs 24:16 Not everyone did well during this pandemic and that includes Christians. Just like everyone else this pandemic was a challenge for us too. Depression and loneliness are just some of the issues that faced believers,Continue reading “The Falling and Rising of Christians in A Pandemic”

No Idea!

“O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself, it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.” Jeremiah 10:23 Have you ever felt lost as if you don’t know what you are doing? That is how I felt yesterday. I left my house to do a couple ofContinue reading “No Idea!”

Seek Me Out Lord

“I have gone astray like a lost sheep. Seek thy servant, for I do not forget thy commandments.” Psalms 119:176 Sometimes even the best of us will experience some form of disappointment in our faith walk. For some it can be a feeling of loss and emptiness can derive from falling in sin and eventuallyContinue reading “Seek Me Out Lord”

After The Fact

“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23 Sin is a topic of discussion that we will never stop talking about until the day Christ returns. Why? Because of our sinful nature. Even after you have accepted Christ you are still prone to sin (being prone to sin doesContinue reading “After The Fact”

Great Is Our God

“Great is our Lord, and of great power, his understanding is infinite.” Psalms 147:5 We serve a God who is great. But sometimes we do not stop to really think about his greatness. Why? Because we allow our temporary challenges to overtake us with anxiety and worry and this can happen to anyone of us,Continue reading “Great Is Our God”


“And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way, and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them, and he did it not.” Jonah 3:10. The story about Jonah and Nineveh is the perfect example of what a second chance looks like. First Jonah triedContinue reading “SECOND CHANCES”

Barabbas Or Jesus?

“The governor answered and said unto them, whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.” Matthew 27:21 Barabbas was not innocent. He was charged with many crimes and he was serving time for something that he was guilty of.  Jesus on the other hand was a peacemaker, a trueContinue reading “Barabbas Or Jesus?”

Now Faith

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1 Many of us have been through some storms and we have seen God moved on our behalf. But as we continue to live, we will always have other challenges that may seem impossible, and our faith will continueContinue reading “Now Faith”

God Is Everywhere

“Whither shall I go from thy spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence?” Psalms 139:7 When David wrote this Psalms I am not sure what he was faced with but based on the words penned, I am confident that he was going through something. He was burdened with care and he knew thatContinue reading “God Is Everywhere”

Praise Report

“Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary, praise him in the firmament of his power. Praise him for his mighty acts, praise him according to his excellent greatness.” Psalms 150:1-2 Just wanted to share another personal testimony of the goodness of God. Today I took my daughter to see the endocrinologist (a medicalContinue reading “Praise Report”

We Have Access

“And I say also unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven andContinue reading “We Have Access”

Covered By His Love

“And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without. And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father, and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father’s nakedness.” Genesis 9:22-23.Continue reading “Covered By His Love”

Know Your Enemy

“Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies, thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee.” Psalms 21:8. The enemy has been around for time began.  The source of the enemy is the Devil, lucifer or Beelzebub and he has planted hatred in the hearts of men. Just as how he is calledContinue reading “Know Your Enemy”

Like Pure Gold

“But he knoweth the way that I take, when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.” Job 23:10 During my devotion yesterday I was captivated by this verse of scripture in Job 23. It feels good to know that God is watching and ordering my steps. Job took comfort in that asContinue reading “Like Pure Gold”

A Set Time

“For thus saith the Lord, that after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.” Jeremiah 29:10.  Many of us have read my opening scripture many times, especially verse 11. But reading from verses 8 to 10 myContinue reading “A Set Time”

Hold On!

“Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness, thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress, have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.” Psalms 4:1. How do you make sense out of your valley experience? What do you do when nothing makes sense?  If you are in a bad situation today,Continue reading “Hold On!”


“For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.” Psalms 91:11-12 I have not been able to write for the past couple days. I am out of town as we speak. MyContinue reading “Convoy”

A Disquieted Soul

“Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts, all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.” Psalms 42:7 Couple days ago, I was feeling very overwhelmed. So, I decided to share how I felt with my family on our family link. The support that I received was just phenomenal, there areContinue reading “A Disquieted Soul”

Righteous Rebuke

“He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favor than he that flattereth with the tongue.” Proverbs 28 vs 23. Telling someone the truth can be one of the hardest things to do especially if it’s a close friend or family member.  But sometimes the only way to save that person from destruction isContinue reading “Righteous Rebuke”

Abba Father

“A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.” Psalms 68 vs 5. My sisters and I are now orphans, it became official when our mother died in 2012. My father would have gone on years before.  The loss of your parents or a parent (especially ifContinue reading “Abba Father”


“Not that I speak in respect of want, for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” Philippians 4 vs 11. There was no one more qualified among the Apostles than Paul, whose discontentment would have been justified. He suffered hardship, need, and hunger. He was belittled, imprisoned and the listContinue reading “Contentment”


“And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich.” Luke 19 vs 2. Who was Zacchaeus? And why did Jesus go to his house?  The story of Zacchaeus is short. He was only mentioned briefly in Luke chapter 19 but the lesson learnt from hisContinue reading “Zacchaeus”


“I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill, but time and chance happeneth to all.” Ecclesiastes 9 vs 11 Since this quarantineContinue reading “Endurance”

Cry Out To Him

“And they came to Jericho, and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging. And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou Son of David,Continue reading “Cry Out To Him”
