Happy 2018 everyone. May this year be filled with abundant blessings and never ending NEW BEGINNINGS for all of us.
Have you found yourself in a place of solitude lately? So-called friends and loved ones seem to have distanced themselves and left you feeling alone, isolated, confused, sad and, at times, angry? Well, I love referring back to the popular saying, "I asked God to protect me from my enemies and I started losing friends." Not that these people are enemies set out to kill you and destroy you in the physical, but some people can be enemies to our spirit.
Some enemies are there to kill our ministry, our testimony, our walk with God and our destiny. So, in order for God to continue to move you forward, it becomes necessary to lose them. It is during this time of solitude that we should develop a closer, deeper, intimate relationship with God. He wants our full, undivided attention. If you find yourself in that place at this very moment, don't use this time to wallow in self-pity or wonder why these people left, but use it to get closer to Our Father. There is nothing wrong with you, but HE desires to make everything right with you. He is protecting you, your destiny and your future. Embrace your alone time with God, because the next group of people that HE sends into your life will be there for a purpose of pushing you closer to your destiny.
I leave you with the blessings of love, peace, good health, wealth and happiness.

On behalf of My Scars Ministry I would like to extend blessings for your New Year. So much has happened in my life this past year. I've experienced several unexpected deaths without closure, murders, disappointments and lows. But, I've also experienced new exciting adventures. I won the ACHI Atlanta Woman of Achievement Award in March, I was a presenter for the 1st Atlanta Actors Awards in April. In May, I was officially ordained as a Pastor. I got my first shot at modeling with VDINX, I launched a My Scars Ministry Talk Show called Scars Talk with Pastor Monica on Itunes Podcast and a YouTube Channel, as well as being a recent recipient of an award at the 1st Educators & Community Heroes Award Ceremony. God has yet been faithful through it all. I appreciate you all and YOU are my reason for fighting to keep on keeping on. May God richly bless your 2018. Sending you love always ~ Pastor Monica K. Harris
Do not get caught up in the commercialized aspect of this time of year. The giving and loving heart that we have now should be carried on daily throughout the year. For those of you who celebrate the day, please have a blessed Christmas, be safe and enjoy your loved ones.
For those who celebrate this manmade holiday please know that no man or woman can offer you the true unconditional love that you receive from Yah (God). Once you have accepted Him into your life you will no longer rely on the actions or concepts of man to fulfill only a void that He can fill and seal to perfection. He gave the perfect gift of love through the sacrifice of His only son Yeshua (Jesus) that you may live an eternity with Him if you only believe. No greater love have I known.
Happy Valentine's Day.
Love and Blessings ~ Lady Monica
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
I was honored to be a part of Hezekiah Montgomery's Man in the Mirror. Listen in to hear my story.
When Samson's hair was cut he lost his strength & his vision. He was weak, but his hair did grow back. The point of it all is this..When you are down, at your weakest point and you feel like God has abandoned you, He is there.
Samson's hair grew back, but he couldn't feel his hair growing. So, just because you don't feel God doesn't mean HE is not there!
One day Samson felt his hair and it had grown back to it's appropriate length. One day you will look around & find that what was once your weakness has now become your strength.
Be encouraged! Love and Blessings ~ Pastor Monica K. Harris
(2 Corinthians 12:9-10) He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee; for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly, therefore, will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore, I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake; for when I am weak, then am I strong.
Listen, we have it all wrong. We are not GOD!!! We do not have the authority to rectify any persons lifestyle, especially through killing and hatred. As Fisher's of men, we catch them and HE cleans them.
I may not condone or like your lifestyle choices, but they are yours and mine are mine. That's called free will. And, I will NEVER hate you because of them. Our Creator is the JUDGE with the final verdict.
My heart aches for all types of hatred and killings based on that hatred or jealousy. May OUR FATHER forgive us all.
My Scars Ministry is praying for Orlando, the victims and families of those affected by this unnecessary evil.

Uh oh..... listen. Just because a man or woman of God speaks against the actions of another man or woman of God does not mean that person is doomed to hell and a false prophet.
We are able to speak to or (correct) our sisters and brothers according to the Word of God.
Here comes Matthew 7:1 Judge not be not judged. Hey, read up on that before you speak it. Quotes without power mean nothing. Ok back to this correction.
Correction is not judgment, as the Bible says, we should correct, rebuke and be bold to those who are sinning. It is to be done in an act of caring for them in the hope that they will believe. That way we could contribute to the saving of a soul. If we don't, we could be responsible for suppressing the truth which could mean eternal death instead of eternal life for that person. "James 5:20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall hide a multitude of sins.
Now just because you're fascinated by the Bishop or Prophets' following, fame, fortune or status that means nothing when he'/she is lying and you're feeding into those lies. He/she is on their way to destruction and taking you along for the ride. Only he/she is riding in a Maybach and you're riding the train. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!
It's time to worship YAHWEH (GOD). Stop seeking witchcraft because you're so desperate to know your outcome you'll pay anybody for a feel good lie.
TURN BACK BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!!!!

Greetings in the name of our Savior Yeshua "The Christ". It has been a while since The Holy Spirit has led me to post a blog, but tonight HE laid it on my heart so hear it goes.
Now, I'm about to step on some toes, lose some friends and cause some gasps, but The TRUTH will set you FREE and I'm about to give it to you.
Now, let me break this down for you. I love Dictionary.com's definition of the word RELIGIOUS... Take note
1. scrupulously faithful; conscientious:
2. pertaining to or connected with a monastic or religious order.
3. appropriate to religion or to sacred rites or observances
Hold on now, I'm going somewhere. NOW, check out Dictionary.com's definition of the word RELATIONSHIP
1. a connection, association, or involvement.
2. connection between persons by blood or marriage.
3. an emotional or other connection between people:
See, what The Spirit is saying is this, we've got too many religious folks and not enough that have a relationship with The Father.
You can go to church religiously every Sunday and Wednesday for life and still not advance in the Kingdom because you don't have a relationship with The Father. Most people have it twisted. They think because they attend every church function, sing in the choir, tithe, etc (RELIGIOUSLY) that gives them their guaranteed right to heaven. You know a reserved spot. Listen, you cannot buy your way into Heaven nor good deed your way there. You have to have a (RELATIONSHIP) with Yahweh (God) in order to understand the true value of salvation and being "born again".
Am I saying, it's wrong to go to church so much, "NO." But, what I am saying is if you don't develop and nurture a relationship with The Creator you will miss out on the beauty of it all. What good is it if your spouse religiously calls you his/her wife/husband yet never converses with you, spends time with you or is concerned about your needs? Eventually, that relationship will fade away, right? Well, so will your relationship with God if you aren't spending time with Him and continually nurturing and developing that relationship. This is the very reason some of you are so confused. You've been so religious at doing things that you have fizzled out the relationship and when problems arise you can't tell the voice of God from the voice of the devil because you haven't established a relationship with The Master.
Tonight, that is your word from above. You now know better that you may do better. Be blessed in the mighty name of Yeshua.
Love and Blessings ~ Pastor Monica K. Harris
John 10:27 (NIV) "My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me."
Drive me out of myself, take possession of my mind Father, think your thoughts through my mind. This is what we need to speak daily. Decide to live focused on God's presence! Do you have double vision? See others not as they are, but as God sees them. If you need help problem solving you'll think more clearly by including God. Have you ever thought of this? If you are alone at mealtime put an extra chair at the table to remind you He's always with you. Place a scripture where you'll see it as you're falling asleep and waking up. Believe it, marinate on it and this will set the tone for your day. The NLB paraphrases the Psalmist's words: "I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for He is right beside me" (Ps 16:8). What you focus on becomes the dominant influence in your life. No matter what you gain in life, money, cars, fame, mansions, elite friends and the best of the best it fails in comparison to relying totally upon God and your relationship with Him. The biggest accomplishment we can ever acquire is to learn to focus on Jesus.#MyScarsMinistry

Have you ever arrived at the airport or hotel and you can’t find a concierge service or even a trolley to transport your luggage? You want to talk about disappointing; because you know without assistance you cannot transport that heavy luggage.
Well, there is good news for you today. First of all, we need to realize how to start to sort through our luggage and get rid of any unnecessary weight. Sometimes, we over pack and carry things on to another destination that really aren’t needed. Then, when we have gotten rid of unnecessary weight we can call up our heavenly Father to help us carry the load that we still have with us. Once we give HIM that load we will notice that our luggage has suddenly become lighter and more manageable because now we no longer have to try to carry unnecessary, shackled down items with us. We can give it all to God and He will carry us and the load.
God bless you may your load become God’s load. Don’t drag that baggage into someone else’s life. Instead, teach them how to make their load lighter too.
Love and Blessings ~ Lady Monica
Matthew 11:28-30 - Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
Losing someone to death is hard, but losing someone close to you while they yet live is even worse. In this life, you gain some and you lose some, but you live. Remember, not everyone that crosses your path is meant to walk with you for a lifetime.
When people fall away and you haven’t done anything wrong, please know that God has removed them from your life because their dress rehearsal and casting call is over. Your story continues to write itself daily with new chapters and a new cast.
One day as you walk this journey we call life there will be someone that God will allow to walk along and hold your hand all the way to the very end. Be encouraged.

Pruning trees and flowers for new growth is sometimes a very painful experience. Afterall, you get stuck by thorns, cut by weeds and possibly come into contact with poison ivy or sumac. But, if you want that tree to flourish and grow and those flowers to bloom you MUST get rid of the weeds that are prohibiting growth.
This is what it is like when you are weeding out people in your life. People that were in your circle that you thought had your back, but you later find out were only there to choke the life right out of you. It may be painful to cut them off and pluck them out, but in order to grow you MUST get rid of them.
And, be very careful because some of those weeds can disguise themselves quite well. They actually begin to look like part of the plant. See, they may start to resemble you by association and this is when your gift of discernment needs to kick in. Study the seed and recognize the weed.
It's time to GROW....Happy Weeding. Love and Blessings ~ Lady Monica
