    I hope I don't offend anyone posting this nor breaking any rules here...if I am please let me know...
    I wanted to wish everyone here happy Easter ... and just wanted to share sermon by pastor Joel Osteen, I couldn't find the video but here's written one. I believe whether you are Christian or not... I hope you find below sermon energizing and blessing for starting a brand new week!!!

    Your Spiritual Bloodline
    Post by Joel Osteen on March 7, 2014
    One time, I saw a documentary on championship racehorses; the kind you see running the Kentucky Derby. It's not a coincidence that those horses end up being the fastest horses in the world. They've been carefully studied and carefully bred for generations. It can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to breed a racehorse with a champion stallion. Before breeding, the owners will go back 50 or 60 years and study the bloodline of a particular stallion. They'll research his father, his grandfather and study how long their stride was, how tall their legs were, their takeoff speed, their endurance. With all this information, they'll choose what they believe to be the perfect match. They understand winners don't just randomly happen. It's in their DNA. That's what sets these horses apart. They have generation after generation of champions on the inside.

    Now, when the little colt is born, his legs may be wobbly and he can barely stand up. He doesn't look any different than any other colt when it's born. The owners could think, "Oh, man, we have wasted our money. Look at him." No, they're not concerned with his present weaknesses. They're not worried about what color he is, how pretty he is, or even how muscular he is. They are totally confident because on the inside, he has the blood of a champion.

    Friend, that's how it is when you are born again. You don't come from ordinary stock. You came from the best of the best. It doesn't matter what we look like on the outside, what color we are, how tall or short, how attractive or unattractive. It doesn't matter how many weaknesses we have. You may struggle with an addiction. You may have made some mistakes. What supersedes everything is that on the inside, you have the DNA of a Champion. You come from a long list of winners. If you look back and study your spiritual bloodline, you'll see victory! You'll see your ancestor Moses parted the Red Sea. There's great faith in your bloodline. David, a shepherd boy, defeated a giant. There's favor in your bloodline. Samson pushed down the walls of a huge building. There's supernatural strength and power in your bloodline. Nehemiah rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem when all the odds were against him. There's increase, promotion and abundance in your bloodline. A young lady named Esther stepped up and saved her people from certain death. There is courage in your bloodline.

    Remember, you come from a bloodline of champions. You were born to win, born to overcome, born to live in victory. It doesn't matter what your present circumstances look like. That addiction didn't come to stay. Freedom is in your DNA. That sickness is not permanent. Health and wholeness is in your DNA. That family problem, strife, division; it's not going to last forever. Restoration is in your DNA. Lack, struggle, barely getting by; that is not your destiny. Abundance, increase, opportunity, good breaks; that's what's in your spiritual bloodline!

    But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:57, NKJV)




    Have a great Easter my friends...

    Happy Easter- to all. To those of us that hold this day as even more significant than the birth and death- it is a wonderful day of remembrance.

    And getting Cadbury Eggs is also the bomb--I haven't had one in years. ☹️
