Have you had a fire in your belly? Burning with God's Passion for others?

I am pregnant with warning and words of revival. I cannot rest. Many of you might be aware of what happened to me in August of 2008, when I had the car accident that changed my life. My arm was degloved and in Knoxville, TN trauma care unit, I died and came into the presence of God's Holiness. His first words to me were "Who do you think you are???" twice. Then He said, "I SPOKE! And Galaxies were formed." My question to you is, Are you ready? Do you hold unforgiveness in your heart? Are you busy about your Father's business? Are you leading others to Jesus Christ? Are you loving others, starting in your own home? Are you doing the will of the Father in your own life? Are you taking inventory and asking God to show you anything you are habitually doing that is not pleasing to Him? Do you study Jesus teachings and read His Words and are you truly a follower of Jesus Christ? do you have a true relationship with God? Do you care about God's feelings? Or do you take advantage of God's Goodness and Mercy with a nonchalant attitude of rebellious disobedience? Do you know better but not do better? Friends, God is not jaded like this ole world. He is Holy and pure and He expects us to truly obey and love Him first. What do you love? Who do you love the most? What do you spend most of your time, thoughts and money on? That is your God. Prepare for meeting with a God who will judge who is wheat and who is a tare because He reads your heart. Jesus said, they will say: Lord Lord, haven't we Prophesied in your name, delivered people from demons and done many wonderful works? God knows your motives, your heart. Do you truly love people and do you truly Love God? If you do not... pray and ask God to reveal to you. He alone changes a heart. Find me on FB Songbirdcindy God Bless! There is so much I need to say... and I have only just begun. I too must obey God. Lastly, and most important, perhaps you do not know Jesus Christ as your Lord, Redeemer and Savior. He is God and man who came to earth because God wanted to make a way for you and I to go to heaven. Jesus is that way. When I first asked Jesus into my heart in 1977, my entire life changed and was re-arranged. God has spared me so many things that would have destroyed me. Today is your day of salvation is you have never believed on Jesus and trusted in Him for your salvation. I confessed my sins, things I knew were wrong that I did. Then I asked Jesus to come into my heart forever. I got a bible and began to read it starting in the book of John and Matthew. I began to attend a church to learn more and find others who believed in Jesus Christ as their Savior. I got busy learning about the bible and about Jesus. When it comes to God we must take the initiative. We cannot be lazy. He gave us a free will for a reason, so we could choose Him and pursue Him with our love. We were not created to be robots. So if your life is empty, Jesus Christ can fill your heart right now. Begin to pray and ask with a sincere heart. God always hears those who re truly talking to Him and seeking Him. He turns noone away... who repents of sin and trusts in His Son - Jesus Christ. God Bless! Feel free to contact me.

HEAL OUR LAND & THE WIDOW PRAYS ARE ABOUT TO TAKE WINGS IN AFRICA IN SWAHILI &

THIS CONTENT PUBLISHES MIRACLES THAT HAPPENED IN THE PAST WEEK ALONG WITH PRAYER REQUEST SUPPORT:

Prayer Request for African Mission Trip about to leave Florida and music with a powerful message just translated and recorded for Africa. My songs HEAL OUR LAND and THE WIDOW PRAYS are about to take on new wings in Africa. Fred Otieno Ochieng has completed recording them in Swahili, Luo, and English. MIRACLES: This is what just happened. I was trying to raise money for the recording through wwwyoucaring.com/Songbirdcindy fundraiser. Not one person other than me donated. But Fred Prayed and fasted. I prayed and others prayed. A friend of mine drives uber and went out driving nights to send Fred money for a computer. She sent it. I sent Fred my songs and the background which needed to be translated into Swahili, Luo, Abasuba and English in his own voice... and put into his Key. But no money came in. God changed the mind of the manager of the recording studio when he prayed. He called Fred and told him God wanted him to pay for the recording because he was going to send these two songs all over the world. Fred went to the studio and the man paid $300 to the cashier. God changed his mind... to help Fred and empower the songs for Africa in their own language. I am crying as I type this for you prayer warriors to pray about. The message is so powerful... I will share in another post. It will help widows to understand who they are in Christ and that mustard seed faith in a big God is more than enough and that they are to pray for their country to change and for the culture to turn to God from Governement on down. Scriptures to back everything. I will post these later. In the meantime: TEAM AFRICA- ABOUT TO LEAVE FLORIDA : KEN RICH ( runs the Indie Gospel Radio and flew from Canada to Florida to be part of this team) and TERESA WIGGINS the head of We Are All One Ministry (WAAOM) who's contributors have supported over 1200 orphans for 7 years. I wish I was going with them. My heart is going and I will be there in spirit. I haven't met the 3rd person, but I believe she is Kelly- another dedicated brave Christian woman with a burden to help others... in Jesus Name. These will be meeting my beloved Kenyan son, Pastor Fred Ochieng who is traveling two days by bus to reach Kampala, Uganda to join them for 10 days. Pastor Fred has recorded two of my songs in Swahili, Luo and English for the people of Africa and he is from Homa Bay, Kenya. He will be meeting them for the first time. All of the team will appreciate your prayers. They have a big job ahead of them. I will post the sound recordings in my next posts... so you may hear them... my verson and Fred's.

Are you shunned by your FAMILY? You might want to listen to my song - FAMILY

LYRICS BELOW: CLICK ON TITLE TO LISTEN TO A SONG OF FORGIVENESS called - FAMILY. Many of my FB friends who are Christians have been shunned by their blood families... who do not call Jesus Christ their Savior and Lord and follow his teachings.

A Friend, Andi Burke & I, wrote this song, in the face of a brutal rejection and betrayal... but it was only the beginning. Because God had many lessons to teach me- to remove a root of bitterness from the depths of my soul. I will always love my family. But I will always love God first. And I will not compromise- to please man. Eternity is where each of us is headed. And the most loving thing we can do- is love others and forgive them quickly- and take our wounds to God because He understands and only He can heal deep wounds. Leave the door open- so maybe someday you will see that miracle you have wept so many tears over. Here are the lyrics to FAMILY.

Family By Cindy Tilkens Jennings/Andi Burke

Sometimes We Stumble And We Fall We Hurt Each Other Most Of All. And The Tears Can Flow From Something We Have Done The World Would Say, We Have The Right Get Your Revenge Keep Up The Fight! But Inside I Know That There’s A Better Way

Chorus You’re My Family. You Will Always Be. There Is Nothing In This Life Can Make That Change For Me. You’re My Family Though We Disagree, But The Ties Of Love Can Hold Us Through Eternity.

A Silent War With Silent Tears. The Price We Pay Is Wasted Years. All The Joy, The Love, The Good Times Never Shared. We Choose To Go Our Selfish Ways. The Pain We Caused Returns To Stay. And We Never Even Know How Much We’ve Lost.

Chorus

Forgiveness Is The Choice We Make. To Love Again… A Risk We Take. Life’s To Short To Hold On To Our Pride. We Hurt Inside, But Still We Pray. We Pray God’s Blessings Come Your Way. And We Know God Can Restore The Years Gone By.

You’re My Family. You Will Always Be. There Is Nothing In This Life Can Make That Change For Me. You’re My Family, Though We Disagree. But The Ties Of Love Can Hold Us Through Eternity. You’re My Family! You’re My Family! You’re My Family

I, CINDY TILKENS JENNINGS, HAVE BEEN GIVING THIS PRAYER SONG AWAY TO OTHER ARTISTS, SINGERS, AND LISTENERS, FOR YEARS TO RECORD ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IN THEIR OWN LANGUAGE AND PUT IT ON THEIR OWN CD PROJECTS - FREE.

FREE DOWNLOADS: SINGERS, RECORDING ARTISTS, CHURCHES, MUSIC LOVERS,

FREE DOWNLOADS! USE ON YOUR NEXT CD PROJECT!

DO YOU WISH YOU HAD A NEW GOSPEL SONG TO RECORD AND PUT ON A PROJECT?  I AM GIVING IT AWAY FREE.  AND MY REASON IS THAT I BELIEVE IF YOU SING IT, RECORD IT AND LET PEOPLE HEAR IT, GOD WILL BE HONORED AND THINGS WILL GET BETTER IF PEOPLE ACTUALLY LISTEN TO YOU AND ACCEPT THE HOLY MESSAGE IN THE SONG. 

GOD GAVE ME "HEAL OUR LAND"  after a simply prayer.  I felt from the first minute, He wanted me to give it to others and let others sing it and record it without cost.  It wasn't free for me.  I had the best Nashville Musicians and a great arranger and producer that I paid to help me get it done.  So I am not giving away something that doesn't matter or that didn't cost me a good chunk of money.  I want to obey and glorify God.  And I am explaining it, so you will take me seriously.  If you like HEAL OUR LAND, PLEASE GO AND DOWNLOAD AND RECORD IT IF YOU WISH. If you are a music lover, you can get the song with just the vocal.  Two tracks are free at www.reverbnation.com/songbirdcindy .  Click on All Songs and go down till you find HEAL OUR LAND, AND UNDER IT IS THE BACKGROUND TRACK.

Colyn Majors, from the Bahama's became my FB friend and downloaded and recorded HEAL OUR LAND, AND did his own words in the musical interlude.  It is awesome.  Look him up and listen.  He has a rich deep voice.  Also nearly 200 people have now downloaded these tracks.  I don't keep a record, I'm just turning it loose, like scattering seeds and hoping it will fall on good ground.  Also feel free to pass this email along to others, and other churches, worship leaders, Christian Organizations, and people who might just enjoy the song- listeners.  Spread the Word, and people may reach back out to God and get the help they need.  This is a powerful musical prayer.  I often ended my concerts with this song, and people would run to the CD table and get the CD just for this song alone.  They wanted to take it back to their churches.

You wouldn't think I would try to 'sell you' on something that is free.  But it is extremely important to me.  And I tell you that you can do the same thing on your emails.  Get the downloads and spread the word just like I am doing with you.  I want the song to go viral, but it doesn't have to be my voice.  It can be a million voices and then it will truly be heard. 

If you enjoy my music, as an Indie Artist it helps me if you become a fan.  But that is NOT a condition to get the downloads.  I hope you are blessed and go forward for God with a hunger and a zeal that pleases God and shows the world how really wonderful He IS. Don't be a stranger.  Feel free to contact me and I will do my best to get back to you.

When people re-connect to God, then God has a good chance of helping them, healing them, wooing them.  But someone must tell them first!  Most people have no idea how much HE LOVES THEM.  God Bless!

LET IT SHINE

I wrote this song riding shotgun in an Eighteen Wheeler while my husband Jim was driving. I was known as Songbird on the CB radio back then. We were running south with a tanker driver - Junkman. There was a steady ribbon of traffic lights winding through the hills, fireflies in the meadows, and the Holy Spirit was nudging me to write this song and to let my light shine. I felt unworthy. But God knew the woundedness in my soul, and reminded me to be transparent, not to hide behind a religious shield, but to let His Light Shine. I penned the song, and sang it to Junkman. He got all choked up and came back with "Songbird, thaaat was beautiful!" I have never forgot what He taught me that day, and I am blessed every time I listen to or sing this song. It was truly a gift from God and it healed a deep wound, and changed my outlook on life, ultimately changing my Life. LET IT SHINE IS HERE ON REVERBNATION AT www.reverbnation/songbirdcindy

SONG IN THE NIGHT

SONG IN THE NIGHT VIDEO - a gentle song about the struggle we all go through when we cannot pray. But we can sing to Him, and we can continue to TRUST IN HIM, knowing He loves us. God's silences do not mean He is absent. And sometimes our inability to pray is not a sign we don't trust Him, it may be just the opposite. When something happens that overwhelms us, all we can do is trust Him. There are no Words. But we can sing to Him- a Song in the Night. THIS IS MY SONG IN THE NIGHT. WHAT IS YOURS?

Added a new video : "Song in the Night - by Cindy "Songbird" Tilkens=Jennings Songbird ..." https://www.reverbnation.com/q/6xfv4a

GOD SAID: BEGIN AGAIN

Have you ever loved someone with a mental illness? Have you ever watched your dream and what you believed was God's Plan, seem to crumble before your very eyes? Has your heart been so broken, that no words could describe it, and no words could comfort you? Have you been so broken that emotionally and seemingly physically you became frozen? You barely got dressed each day? If so, then read on. There is still hope.

Within each of us is a place where only God can satisfy and only God can fill. During times of devastation, God is always working in the background. He is always loving us and trying to help us to move forward with Him in our lives. Evil is real. Satan hates God and tries to hurt God by hurting us. Satan loves it when we are disappointed and turn our back on God. But here is what God says: BEGIN AGAIN

His still small voice is always at work within us, and the Holy Spirit guides us- Not to give up on God or the plan that God has for us.

Are you familiar with Paul in the New Testament of the Bible? He was quite a man. He was a Roman, and the account of him begins with him persecuting Christians with all his heart. He was stopped cold, struck blind by God and God said, Saul, why are you persecuting me? God restored his sight through the prayers of another man, and from then on Saul, renamed by God to be Paul, was sold-out to God. He was shipwrecked, beaten, whipped, imprisoned, bit by a snake, mocked, rejected, forsaken by friends, betrayed, and yet over and over He kept going. I am sure He heard the still small voice speak after he had been sick, Begin Again. So he stayed the course. He was faithful to the one true God and He spread the gospel of Jesus Christ till he died.

His life was never easy. He was learned and a brilliant man. He wrote letters from prison that are now a part of the New Testament of the Bible. Those letters have influenced many men, women, and children's lives... shaping and molding them into people of integrity, followers of Jesus Christ... for 2000 years!

Millions, probably billions of people have read Paul's words of encouragement, exhortation, teaching, and praise toward God, pointing each of us to Trust in Jesus Christ, repent, become a disciple and a true follower.

So as you navigate through your life, being shipwrecked by circumstances, relationships, religious or non religious people, even family... As you feel the snake bite sting of betrayal and rejection, realize that people are watching you. And your words may travel further than you will ever conceive. Paul didn't know he would effect people for 2000 years. He was being faithful in the moment- in the present moments of challenges that he faced in his life. So should we.

Life is difficult at best. But God is enough. He remains faithful even when we are not faithful. He will never leave or forsake us. And through His Grace we are empowered to face every situation that comes our way. We may face loneliness, pain, sorrow, grief, rejection, illness, betrayal, and even mockery. So What!!!

BEGIN AGAIN! But what if you have blown it? What if you have sinned? R E P E N T! GOD has an answer for every problem. What if you haven't got the stamina to do what you used to do? Then wear your life out doing what you can still do for the Lord. Even if you are unable to leave your bed, you can still pray. What if you don't know how to pray? Ask God to reveal how He wants you to pray. If you have internet access there are prayer apps that you can download. There are so many ways to accomplish something to bring Glory to God, as long as you are still breathing.

In 2008, I died after a car accident. It left me disabled. I broke my neck, back, de-gloved my right arm, fractured my skull to the point my rt ear canal permanently closed. My rt cheek had to be replaced, and my rt eye sewn back in it broken socket. LISTEN! YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST JESUS WHO STRENGTHENS YOU! GOD BLES

CHANGE IS IN THE WIND

I believe God guides my life, in spite of me. Sometimes looking back, I think to myself, how could I have made THAT decision? Have you ever done that?

But in Jeremiah 29:11 God says he has good plans for us, and I believe it. So, change is in the wind for me. I published my first book on Amazon, called FEATHERS. It will help wounded and hurting people from broken homes. It will show them a character who did not trust or like God, because God wasn't there for them when they needed Him as a child. But this character came to realize that God was pursuing her with HIS LOVE, all her life. She was looking to others, when He was always there holding healing in His Hands. Many of us have experienced that. I also created a CD with music that correlates to my book, and it too is for sale on Amazon.com The CD is entitled, Shine Your Faith at this Link: http://a.co/6XjpH6c

This is a time of clinging to my God as I will be navigating through a Biblical Divorce I never wanted. I believe God is about to open new doors, to sing and speak to people who will listen to my message. It is a message of Hope and Encouragement. It is a warning for the future ... to understand forgiveness is a command of God and not an option for the Christian - a follower of Jesus Christ. I have been tested. I am ready to Fly... and when God opens the doors... I am ready.
