God is calling for a people who will be all about their fathers business.

There are many people who are single, and are looking for that special person to spend their life with. I believe that marriage is an amazing thing ordained by our heavenly Father. I also believe that there is someone for everyone no matter race, color or size. However, I am a strong believer that unless God is in the selection process, you may end up in a messed up situation (no seriously I have seen and heard some crazy stories).
When God is involved in the selection, He can find a perfect match for you. Because he knows the real you! Why I say the real you? Because there are parts of you that you haven't even realized yet! Let me give you an example; have you ever told yourself that there are somethings that you just would not do, then you get thrown into a situation where your back was pushed against the wall, and that very thing you said you would not do, you did? I have news for you, God knew that you would do it, because he knows the you, you haven't met yet!
It's really easy to say what you will and won't do before you’re in a situation where you must do something. That's why it's so important to let God be your match maker because He knows exactly what you would do in that situation (catch this) and how you need your mate to respond to your action! I heard this saying "The way you know if someone really loves you is, when all hell is breaking loose and their standing in the fire with you" (to that I say Lord send them!). God knows who is going to stand by your side through the good times, the bad times, sad times, when you're acting crazy ( hello somebody! y'all know I'm talking right!) when you're having a valley moment or on the mountain top experience.
That's why it is so important to do what the Bible says " But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you". I know we do all different kinds of things to try and find that special person to spend our life with. Some people use dating website or read all kinds of self help books; like how to find your soulmate for dummies (I'm just kidding, but there might really be a book entitled that). Seriously; people will look to many different avenues to find that person that they can love forever. I have applied the word of God to every aspect of my life and it worked! That's why I believe that if I seek God and all his righteousness that, health, purpose, destiny, prosperity, blessings, favor and my soulmate will be added unto me!
Listen I know that sometimes it gets a little lonely when you’re single, especially when you have the mindset holiness is still right! Listen there are a lot of people who are single but don't have a mindset that holiness is still right; or present their bodies as a living sacrifice holy and acceptable (I'm going to leave that alone, however I'm talking right!) I know sometimes we sit back and question when is it going to happen, when is my time. I wanna encourage you to continue seeking the Kingdom of God and all his righteousness, and watch how He is going to start adding to you!
People of God listen our Heavenly Father is an all knowing God. The Bible says that our Heavenly Father knows what we need before we even ask, however(watch this) the Bible also says will a father give their child a serpent that ask for a fish. When God gives you you're mate, you didn't have to worry if they are a creepy crawler. You can have confidence that they will be nourishment that will feed your heart, mind and soul that you may flourish! My brothers and sisters I pray that you wait on the Lord, and again I say wait!
I LOVE YOU WITH THE LOVE OF THE LORD

Well it's a new year, thank God we made it over! I pray that the favor of God is manifested in your life in 2016. I believe that God is going to be revealing many things to the people of God this year. I also believe that there are some things that we must let go of in this new year, because it doesn't fit into God’s plan for our lives. I know people are not going to like this because when you've been holding on to something it's so hard to let go. Guess what; once you let go you will understand more clearly what it feels like to be free indeed.
Let me show you what it looks like when God gives you a no, and you still waiting on a yes! The Bible tells a story about a man named Jonah, this story should be very familiar. I have heard this story preached many times with the subjects; the God of a second chance, God will deliver you out of all your trouble and many more. However, God showed me something I have not heard anyone preached. The story goes as followed: God says judgment has come to Nineveh and sends Jonah to prophesy to the people. Jonah tries to run from God and his assignment, however he runs into a storm and gets swallowed by a big fish. Jonah repents for his disobedience and God gives the big fish orders to spit Jonah out on dry land. Jonah proceeded to Nineveh and prophesy to the people that in forty days the city will be destroyed (stick with me I'm getting to it!). Well the story goes that all the people of Nineveh including the King and the animals repented, fast and prayed and ask God to change his mind; and God did changed
When you look at Jonah chapter 4, around the 5th verse you see that Jonah went and sat on the east side of the city to see what would happen to it. (Don't miss it!) God already made the decision not to destroy Nineveh (watch this) and told Jonah His decision, so why is Jonah waiting to see what's going to happen? I asked God what are you trying to tell me, and this is what God shared with me. He said people seek me for council for their life, however they don't always accept my answers. When my final judgment is no they sit around waiting for a never coming yes, (wow I just said something let me say it again). God has already said no to your request but your sitting around waiting for " a never coming yes". He went on to say "that people become frustrated and aggravated because they are waiting for answers I already gave them". He said "always remember that I am a merciful God and no matter how people perceive it, my decisions are always merciful" (for that Lord I thank you!)
Listen when God answer is no, we need to accept it and move on, because if we don't we find ourselves in a uncomfortable place. The Bible says that the place where Jonah sat became so hot that he fainted from the heat! Is that your current condition? Have you not let go of something or someone that God has said no about, and it's literally killing you trying to hold on! Are you praying pleading to God for something that you know in your heart, in your spirit and the very fiber of your being that He already said no?
I believe this is our year to pack up our heart & mind and move from the east side of that city, and move on!. When we understand that our Heavenly Father loves us we can accept His final answer, because we know He is doing it for our good. We must realize that everything that looks good to us or feels good to us, is not always good for us. The Bible says the blessing of the Lord make rich and adds no sorrow, (Proverbs 10:22). That means that if it's going to bring you sorrow, he’s not going to release it to you. Why you ask? Because God is clear on his definition of his blessing and if your request doesn't have all the requirements it doesn’t qualify!
People of God listen I want us to be free indeed in 2016!. Let’s reevaluate our lives and if we find anything that we're waiting on that God has already said no to, let's pack up and move on. We must understand that our God is a good God and He's not saying no because he wants us to be bitter; He's saying no because what He has for us is better! When we release the no things we have room to receive the yes things! I believe that God has great things in stored for us, let's make room to start receiving them!
I Love You With The Love Of The Lord

This is my last blog for 2015, and I'm absolutely amazed how fast this year went by. I can remember the first blog I wrote like it was yesterday! To be honest with you when God said to me to start writing a weekly blog, I was not on board( that's my nice way of saying I was freaking out!). My anxiety came about because I was questioning, "What in the world am I going to write about every single week and would it be something that people would actually want to read?” I kept questioning God is this something that you really want me to do (in hopes that I received the message wrong or God would simply change his mind) however the answer never changed. I thought to myself well you told God you will never tell him no, and your answer will always be yes and the rest is history.
What I learned in this year is that when God gives you an assignment, He already knows that you can complete it. Don't worry about how you’re going to get through it, just start working on it one portion at a time. I think about the saying the (old folks say) you take one step and God will take two. Every time I sat down to write the blog I prayed and asked God for direction on what to write. My prayer was and always is "Lord you give me the words to write, so that they can go out and accomplish your will and will not return to you void". Guess what happens, every time after I say that prayer, God gives me a word! That's why I give God all the glory because without him I know it would not be possible.
I want to encourage somebody today if God gives you an assignment no matter how big it seems, just start working because your faithfulness will get you to the finish line (I like that!). I want you to know that if you are faithful to the assignment God gives you, He will provide you passage to the finish line (I feel a praise coming on!) Do you need confirmation of that? Ok watch this, the Bible says in Mathew 25:23 " His lord said unto him well done, good and FAITHFUL servant; thou hast been FAITHFUL over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things; enter thou into the joy of thy Lord. Did you catch that? because the servant was faithful of a few things, his lord made him ruler of many things.
Listen, God will honor your faithfulness and allow you to enter into his joy ( watch this) and the joy of the Lord is your strength! What does that mean? You will have strength to complete what you thought you were too weak to handle (somebody needs to get excited!). Listen don't worry if you think you’re not strong enough, wise enough, educated enough, pretty enough or whatever you think you don't have enough of. When you have the Lord on your side you can do all things, and that means you have more than enough.
I faced every doubt and fear that tried to hold me back from completing my assignment. Catch this because I have seen how God moved in this area in my life, I was confident about every other assignment God gave me. I was faithful and started working on the few things and God made me ruler over, all of my 2015 assignments! This is why I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt, that no assignment is too big if God assigned it to you.
Listen people of God, walk by faith not by feelings, emotions or sight! We are now embarking on a new year, and this is a perfect time to seek God for your 2016 assignments. I am super excited about 2016 because I heard God say this will be the year of release! I'm looking forward to releasing some great things in 2016, and already have begun to walk in faith. I look forward to sharing all that God has placed in me in 2016, and to experience what He have placed in you! I Love You With The Love Of The Lord

Today is December 20, 2015 which is my birthday, and I am sitting here trying to write my weekly blog. To be honest with you its kind of difficult because my mind continues to reflect back over my life, however I'm trying to focus on God to hear a word to share with His people. I remembering the times I was not sure what to do with me life. I could recall the many things I thought I wanted to do from a young age until adulthood. I remember when I was a young girl I wanted to be a singer then a dancer, author, actor, nurse, physical therapist ( specializing in sports medicine I'm not going to even get into it why) news anchor women, lawyer and last but not lest Director of human resources.
I never felt absolutely sure about any of those profession, and the only thing that stuck with me all my life was the desire to be a author. I also had a heart to help people and tried my hardest to do so, however to me that never translated to a profession. I always attributed my desire to help people to having a good heart like my Mother, I believed that's why it came so naturally.
I notice now as I begin to look back I never asked God when I was younger what I should do with my life. This scripture just came to my mind Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think towards you says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil. To give you a future and hope. Wow that just hit me, you see all the time I spent trying to figure out what I was going to do with my life, God already formulated an awesome plan for me. I always believed that there was something that God wanted me to do, however i tried to figure it out on my own instead of going to the source and ask Him.
Don't get me wrong I believe that every experience in my life was leading to Gods plan to give me a future and hope! I'm not saying that I have fully arrived however what I can honestly say is that, I'm closer to my future and hope than I have ever been! When I asked God what was His plan for my life and stop trying to wing it ( which is something that I would do often) He let me in on the thoughts he had towards me. I found out that His plan was so much better then mine, and it brought me so much more joy!
Listen sometimes we find our self in a position of wandering, trying to figure out what we should be doing with our lives. However what I learned is that we have a God that has already sat down and thought our lives through, and we don't have to wonder what that is. The word of God says ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall fine, knock and the door shall be open unto you. When I asked he answered and revealed the path I should take, and catch this He continues to unfold my purpose daily ( I give God all the praise for His revelation)
People of God listen I started off this blog unsure why God was leading me in this direction. In my mind I was asking God to give me an encouraging word for his people. I now realize my life is a encouraging word because I can truly say if it had not been for the Lord on my side, I don't know where I would be. I can truly say to you with confidence God has a plan for your life. I can also tell you with confidence that if you seek God for that plan, he will reveal it to you. I am excited to see another birthday that was not promised to me, and grateful to see the growth in my life. I firmly believe that greater is coming in my future, and so I put all my hope in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and you should too!
I LOVE YOU WITH THE LOVE OF THE LORD

My sister and her granddaughter were over my Mother’s house this weekend. When her granddaughter got a little out of hand, my sister told her she was going in time out. Time out consisted of my sister holding her for a few minutes, then she would put her down to run around the house again. I found it interesting because her granddaughter is only one years old, and I thought to myself “what does she know about a time out”? What blew my mind was the way my sister's granddaughter responded when she was told she had to go in time out.
It went like this; I believe she was having a tantrum because she was told to stop doing something, my sister said to her " you are going on time out come here", (now this was the first time I heard her tell her this so I was looking at her, like she was out of her mind because she was expecting this one year old to voluntarily come to her,) her granddaughter got up from her tantrum and walked over to her. However she stood in protest in front of her, because she did not want to be held in her time out. However my sister just kept saying "come on come on you going into time out". After she seen that the protest was not working and my sister wasn't going to change her mind; she calmly walked over to my sister and reached her hands up so she could pick her up (I was absolutely shocked!) and my sister said to her you have three minutes and stated what time it currently was (now keep in mind her granddaughter is only one she can't tell time)
My sister's granddaughter sat there quietly in her grandmothers arms for those minutes, and when her time was over my sister let her go and she went about her business. I was so intrigued by this process because personally I thought “she is just a baby she doesn't understand this process” even more so I didn't believe she would comply with it.
The very next day God brought the interaction between my sister and her granddaughter back to my memory. He said to me that when we; the children of God get out of line he too must chastise us. God brought me to Proverbs 3:12” For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth”. He also stated that just as my sister's granddaughter protested about being put into time out, we do the same as well. When correction comes instead of just accepting it, we try to explain our way out of it. You know some of the excuses we make " I didn't mean it like that, I didn't plan for it to happen, it was a mistake (or this one) I had no choice! However the Lord brought me to Galatians 6:7” Be not be deceived; God is not mocked for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap”.
Listen I want to say this plainly the way God gave it to me. When we are in disobedience, or doing things that God is unpleased with, or have done something that God wants to correct, or stepped out of the will of God; it doesn't matter how much we protest; correction shall come. Stop trying to strain and agonize over entering into correction; because just like my sister sat there with her hands out waiting for her granddaughter to surrender to her time out, God is waiting too. Surrender and give up the tantrum it doesn't change the judgement; your just prolonging the inevitable! When my sister’s granddaughter surrendered to her timeout all the screaming and crying stopped, and peace and calm was rewarded to her as she sat in her grandmother’s arms.
People of God listen if you find yourself in our Heavenly Fathers judgement, I suggest you surrender quickly to his correction. God is a good Father who loves you, and even though he is correcting you there will still be calm and peace in the midst of your correction. Although you might not understand God’s time clock (like my sister's granddaughter didn't understand her time) His time is perfect and fare.
I LOVE YOU WITH THE LOVE OF THE LORD

Psalms 37:23 The steps of a man are established by the Lord, when he delights in his ways (ESV). This scripture has delivered me out of the hands of the spirit of frustration and aggravation on many occasions. Why do I say that? Because this life is not an easy one to navigate through, especially if you're trying to do it on your own. You're in the decision making set daily, and trying to decided which decision is right for your life. If we all are honest, we can admit that sometimes we feel we get it wrong sometimes; some of us would say we get it wrong a lot of times!
We question ourselves about our careers, even the relationships in our personal or professional life. Some people worry if theyare giving enough of their time to their families; or if they are allowing work to consume them. We wrestle with deciding where to live and build our lives, and who we should build it with. One thing that frustrates me, is how I use my time. I understand that time is precious because once you use it, it's gone; this is why I don't like to waste it. I went through a season in my life where I would question everything I was doing. I found myself always taking time to sit down and ponder if these things that I was involved with were worth me using up so much of my time. Then I would be aggravated with myself for using up time to ponder these question, when I could've been doing something more productive (Yes I was a mess!). I remember having one of those help me Lord moments! What is a help me Lord moment? That's when you have struggled with something for so long, and have exhausted all of your strength; and you can only muster up enough energy to say help me Lord. Yep, that's where I was and God lead me to this scripture Psalm 37:23. That is why I stated earlier that Psalm 37:23 delivered me from frustration and aggravation. I realize that I didn't have to worry about whether or not I was on the right path, because God was establishing my steps and directing me. I just had to make sure that I was delighting myself in His ways. Meaning I had to make sure that my life was pleasing to him.
Listen this life will have you on a never ending roller coaster, if you spend it worrying about every step you take. Leave yoursteps in God’s hands because he is the author of your life, and if He wrote the story he knows how it begins, all the in between and how it ends. You just focus on delighting yourself in the Lord and be pleasing in his sight.
People of God listen, the word of God says in Proverbs 3:6, In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. If you acknowledge Him in all your ways, your path is already mapped out for you. Your life is in the master’s hand and that is the safest place for it to be. Don't worry about the path your on as long as God is the head of the life you live!
I LOVE YOU WITH THE LOVE OF THE LORD

I had this dream some time ago that has never left me. Every time I think about it, it's like I am literally experiencing it again. This dream was so real that it feels like a memory of a place I actually visited. You know how you sit and think about the places you've vacationed, and you start thinking about all the fun things you did, and the funny things people said. Yep that is exactly what this dream feels like, and it was so glorious that I desire to go to that place again! I guess you're wondering what could be so glorious about this dream? I am so glad you asked! I dreamed that I was in Heaven, and it was so real.
The atmosphere was amazing something that I have never thought of or imagine. Let me try to explain, the air was love, peace, joy, goodness and happiness; it wasn't a feeling of those things it literally was all of those things. The air flowed in and out of you and engulfed you, so much so you didn't have a choice but to be full of love, peace, joy, goodness and happiness. Listen I didn't want to fight becoming one with the air, because I had never felt so free in my life. It was as if I had no weight just light as a feather. I remember in the dream just standing there for a while trying to understand how is this air possible. I remember asking myself how can these emotions literally be in the air. I couldn't finish pondering that question because the Light stole my attention. This light was so bright that it shined brighter than any light I have ever seen. It was not blinding;it seems as if I could see clearer through this light. The light drew you into it, but you couldn't tell what direction it was coming from. I couldn't find the starting point, it was just everywhere. I must say I was mesmerized by the beauty of this light, and how it made me feel warm in cozy on the inside and outside.
Then my attention was brought to what appeared to be a field I was in. The color was awesome (for lack of a better word, because words could never describe it) it was so vibrant and alive. The grass was this amazing green, nothing like the grass we have here. This really threw me, it was like the grass was a living, functioning thing (I know that plants are living things, of course we learned that in school, but not like this) they were literally singing. The flowers were beautiful with vibrant colors and they were alive also and singing. The trees were beautiful with vibrant colors and they were alive and singing. Together they made the most beautiful harmonized music I have ever heard. ( I have been looking for that sound for years now, but nothing even comes close to it)
Listen I woke from that dream feeling like I just returned from the most glorious vacation, because it felt so real. Why am I sharing this dream with you? Because I want you all to remember what's stored up in heaven for us is even greater than this dream. Although this dream was amazing and I will never forget it, I did not get the opportunity to see my lord and savior Jesus Christ! I don't know about you but one of the reason I live this Christ like lifestyle is because I want to see Him! My God when I see Jesus, I am not going to be able to contain myself! ( I can't contain the tears right now)
People of God listen we may go through struggles in this life, and things may not work out the way we want them to. Please remember that we are living to live again. In our father’s house are many mansion, that he has prepared for you and me! This race is not an easy race nor is it for the swift or the strong; however, it's for those who will endure to the end. Listen at the end ( My God I feel glory!) We get to be like that old spiritual song they use to sing in church! " when we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be. When we all see Jesus we will sing and shout victory"!
I LOVE YOU WITH THE LOVE OF THE LORD

What is process? Process by definition is a series of actions or steps taken in order to achieve a particular end. Another definition , a series of actions that produce something or that lead to a particular result. I like this definition a natural phenomenon mark by gradual changes that lead toward a particular result My God I need a praise break off of that one right there! (But let me hold my mule) Listen there has to be some natural phenomenon mark by gradual changes in your life. (I like that right there!) let me say it plainly you have to go through some stuff to get where you want to go.
The road to success is not an easy road it's a long and bumpy road. If you want to be successful in anything in life there must be preparation for it! Yes the “ P ” word people don't like the “ P ” word it's like a curse word! However it's the truth anyhow, you must prepare for your future and therefore go through the process. If you want to be a lawyer don't you first have to go to law school and then pass the bar exam. Process is the necessary steps you must go through, when you’re buying a house, filing your taxes, even applying for W.I.C. ( I don't want to leave anyone out) your paper work has to be processed. Come on people of God you got to get this so that the enemy can't get you down! You know he be talking to you saying " I though t your God was going to do it for you, I though t you could do all things through Christ, I thought that you were fearfully and wonderfully made" You got to be able to stand up and tell the Devil that's right all those things are true, I'm Just Going Through The Process!! When you understand that there are something's that you have to go through, that life is not a microwave and there is no instant success button. You can go through your process with ease and, without frustration, aggravation, or the feeling of stagnation ( I just went Jesse Jackson on ya'll) The Bible says in Philippians 4:6 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known to God”. We will get into prayer and supplication later on.
I wanna focus on that portion of the scripture that says be anxious for nothing. Listen don't be anxious about reaching success it will come at its appointed time. I know that you want to see your dreams come true as soon as possible. Your waiting on that perfect career, your own business, finishing college, purchasing a house, getting married, having children whatever it is that your waiting on. Nothing will happen until there is a natural phenomenon marked by gradual change. Go through your process it's worth it when you get to the place that you are destined to be.
Listen we must walk through this life with the mindset of a farmer. The farmer preps his fields so that he can sow his seeds. After he sow his seeds he knows that he cannot stop there he has to work and water the fields. Although he is looking for a great harvest to come he understands that it will not come until it is the right season. However he continues to work and water the fields. He is dedicated even though all he sees is the soil covering his seeds. Wow that just hit me no matter how dirty, damp or dark your life my look right now There Is Seed Under There! Listen the seed brings forth newness and fruitful life!
Jesus said”Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit”. (John 12:24). My God did you catch that?; that before there can be much fruit something has to die. Listen , your hard work that you sowed at first will look like a dead thing. However you are on the brink of a great harvest. If you don't put in the work and just hold on to your little grain, you will only have the one grain alone. That means you will never complete your purpose and never reach your destiny if you sit back and do nothing.
When the harvest comes in! My God it's times for rejoicing! Listen the harvest is coming at the appointed time. But you must go through the process there will be glory after the work. The longer you take to sow your seeds, work and water the fields, the longer it will take to reach your destiny. I don't know about you but I wanna put in the work to see what the end is going to be. I know it seems like you've been going and going, I know it feels like everything you try to do falls apart. I get that you're frustrated and feel like given up and throwing in the towel. The Bible says in Galatians 6:9 “And let us not be weary in well doing for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not”. Listen people of God I pray that you get that deep down in your spirit! Don't get weary, tired, stressed but most of all Don't Give Up! If you faint not , in due season, In the appointed time, in your harvest season You Shall Reap! My God that means everything that you worked so hard for is going to be yours! Don't give up people of God! Don't walk away from your field before your season of harvest

I have always tried to be obedient to everything that God leads me to do. I had a list of things that God had for me to do this year and I was adamant in completing them. How many people know that when your assignment is outside of the scope of things you are used to doing, the task seems ten times harder to complete? When it's something familiar although there might be some agitation it's easier to tell yourself I can do this, because you have done it before.
I believe God gives us these out of our confront zone tasks for two main reasons; one, to show us with Him we can do things that we thought were impossible. Two to push us into our true purpose and destiny. For example, the Apostle Peter would have never known that he could walk on water if he never stepped out of the boat! I notice something very important Peter did before he stepped out of the boat, he asked permission to step out. The definition of permission is - the act of permitting especially in giving formal consent; authorization. Watch this, if God gave you permission to do something He already knows that you’re efficient to complete the task (somebody needs to catch this) I know that it's uncomfortable to operate in a unfamiliar place, but the fact that a God put you there know that you can master it. Listen God created Adam and placed him on the earth,
(catch this) Adam was just brought into existence and put in a place he had never been, and God gave him dominion over the earth and everything in it! That means, Adam who was created by the Creator was giving control over every other created thing, that was created by the Creator ( I just said a mouthful).
I want you to understand if God brings you to it, He already equipped you to subdue it. I know some tasks seem to be too difficult for us to complete, and we ask the question how can I do this Lord? Well if you're trying to do it yourself, that's your first mistake. The word of God says " Not by might, not by power, but by my spirit says the Lord" Alone you cannot do it, but if a God is in it there is no limit to what you can achieve. The things that seemed impossible to complete, becomes small tasks when God is in it.
Listen my 2015 list of mandates by God seemed like a task that I could not complete. Can I be honest with you, I procrastinated on one of my assignments, because I felt like I could not pull it off. I allowed the spirit of fear to convince me that I could not pull it off. However, to God be the glory the last assignment for 2015 was completed this weekend. God laid it on my heart to have a Girl Talk Summit this year, and it was awesome because people were blessed and lives were changed!
People of God listen when God gives you an assignment, complete it! No matter how difficult it may seem. Understand the very fact that God place the mandate on you is because he knew that you could perform it! Where ever God is placing you in life, take dominion over that place. Don't be afraid, if God gave you permission to do a thing, then you have authority over it. Walk in your authority knowing that if God be in it there is no limit!

Psalm 34:1 says I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. Is this your confession today; and if your answer is yes do you understand the ramifications of the confession? It is extremely easy to bless the Lord when things are good and all is well. We praise God for our jobs and good health, and when our children and family's are fine. It's easy to bless the Lord when we are in our season of abundance, and our cup runneth over.
However what about the times when all hell is breaking loose in your life, and you don't know whether you're coming or going? I'm talking about the times when the enemy comes in like a flood and try's to devour you. How about the times when the one place that you go for peace such as home, is now the one place that you dread going; due to the constant chaos. Will you still bless the Lord when the person who promise to love, honor and cherish you until death do you part, has now renege on that Vow? Will you still have a praise when the child you suffered pain to birth them into this world, and made many sacrifices to raise; is now disrespectful and have the nerve to raise they hand to you.
What about when the issues of life get you down, and you feel absolutely lost? Even better what about when you love someone and give them your all, and they take your heart and crush it as if was nothing? Will you praise the Lord when you loose love ones, and it feels like you heart is literally being ripped out of you?
People of God listen we may have to deal with some of those very issues, however we must realize that no matter what comes our way He is still God. Our circumstances does not negate the fact that God is the Alpha and the Omega and the creator of all things. We must still bless the Lord at all times; that means in our sad and happy times, and in sickness and in health. We may have hard times, however God still deserves our praise because he created us from the dirt of the earth and blew his breath into us and we became a being. Listen God gave His only begotten son to die for us that we may have eternal life, and life more abundantly. That means God made provision for us in this life ( the more abundant life) and the next life (eternal life).
When you sit down and think about it that confession should not be a hard task. We should be able to bless the lord at all times, and His praise should be continually in our mouths. No matter what we're dealing with; no matter how many tears we cry. Understand that when you bless the Lord in the middle of your situation and circumstances, God will come in; in the midst of it all and turn it around for your good. Psalm 18:6 says in my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and even into his ears. ( my God somebody better get that) that when you cry out to God that your voice is not only heard in the temple but in the very ears of God! > > People of God listen no matter what you're going through open your mouth and bless the Lord; and let his praise continually be in your mouth. When it hurts and you feel like you're going to loose your mind cry out to God! Let your voice ring out in his ears; and know that He's coming to your rescue just hold on!

The Bible tells a story about a man name Jairus, he was a synagogue leader. He had a twelve year old daughter who was very sick and on the verge of death. He went to Jesus for help because he heard about all the miracles Jesus was performing and (catch this) he believed Jesus could heal her. Jairus sought out Jesus and pleaded for His help. Jesus agreed to his request and they were on their way to Jairus house. There were a lot of distraction and interruption as they traveled. Listen to this Jairus received a report on the road while they're traveling. The Bible says that someone came from Jairus home and told him don't bother to bring Jesus to his home his daughter was already dead. ( now that's a bad report!) Watch this Jesus overhears the report that Jairus receives and He says to him " don't be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed. ( My God I need you all to catch this) Jesus over hears them saying that your daughter is Dead! Not extremely sick or getting worst, But Dead! Listen to this he tells Jairus Don't be afraid, just believe and she will be healed.
That means it don't matter what the report is, it don't matter how dead the situation is or what it looks like. If you are not afraid and believe God will heal that issue, circumstance and rewrite that report. It blows my mind that Jesus didn't say don't be afraid, just believe and your daughter will be brought back to life. The report said she was dead , but that lets us know that if God purpose something to live he will never call it dead. Jesus made no reference to the girl being dead or the need for her to be resurrected. (Catch this) after Jesus heard that she was dead he continued on with the plan to go and heal her. Why? His word cannot come back to him void , it must go out and establish what he said. To man the situation looks absolutely hopeless , to God it's business as usually. The Bible says in Mathew 19:26 Jesus looked at them and said, "with man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible".
Listen I want you to understand that you may receive bad reports, and things may not look like they are working in your favor. However I want you to know that God can change reports and turn things around in your favor in the blink of an eye. However there is a prerequisite to access your miracle, you must believe! Your faith is the key to unlock all the promises God have stored up for you. It's easy to stick your head in the sand and doubt that God is going to bring you out. However if you prefer to be a bold solider and continue to walk by faith no matter what it looks like, no matter what the reports say! My God you will walk into your healing, deliverance and receive a powerful testimony.
People of God listen we serve a God who has all power in his hand, and who never sleep nor slumber. Please remember that our God is not a man that he should lie, if he said it he shall fulfill it. Listen that means even if the report says it's dead! don't doubt just keep believing. When Jesus steps in the room everything must rise up and live!

Proverbs 18:21 says Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. When we look at this scripture we must realize that our words hold great power. Just think about it, your words can cause someone to come out of darkness and be whole. However, that same tongue can release words that can send someone into deep depression and literally kill them. Yep, that's right you heard me clear, your words can literally kill someone. You can strip someone of their dignity, self- worth and well- being simply by using your words.
I experienced both sides of the spectrum recently and I believe God revealed this to me to share. I was on my way home and a young woman walked up to me and said " don't you live here?" and I said yes, she then said " I thought that was you, you lost weight" I responded yes I did lose weight. (I did in fact loseweight because I began to struggle with high blood pressure. It's hereditary on both my mother’s and father’s family; so when I started to struggle with it I said God we are going to break this generational curse right now. Come on somebody, I said devil I will not suffer what my parents and grandparents struggled with I'm Breaking It Right Now! And to God be the glory I'm free no medication needed. I'm putting in a praise right here!) She then said " you look so good, don't get me wrong you always looked good, but you look amazing you go girl, you rock". Her words made me feel good and put a smile on my face; because of her words my do went even smother. This young girl went out of her way just to say something nice to me, when she didn't have to, and for that I was = greatful
The other side of the spectrum; I was in church talking to one of my sisters in the Lord, and a church mother walked up to me. She says "you look so good you lost weight?" and I said thank you yes I did lose weight. She then continued to compliment me and the sister I was speaking to says yes I lost weight too. The church mother looked at her as to say where, and said you should keep on working.
(before I go any further I just want to say that I love the church mothers. I spend a lot of time with them because they have knowledge and wisdom that I need. As I have written in my book (Women On The Wall) sometimes, some not all church mothers say inappropriate things that hurt and offended people) The mother then began to point out the areas that the sister needed to lose. The sister responded to the church mother and says "well I like my hips and chest, all I want to lose is more of my stomach"; the Mother responded well if that's all you think you need to loose, to each its own. Now right there I had to interject because it was clear that the sister was offended by the mother’s comment. I changed the conversation by asking the mother how she was doing, and she then focused on the issues she was dealing with.
The whole demeanor of this sister had completely change, she went from smiling and laughing to quiet and gloomy. After the Mother walked away I began to rebuild this sister, because the mother had clearly torn her down. I refused to leave a person in a state of brokenness in my presence ( that's part of the call on my life). I encourage the sister and told her that she should not be concerned about people's opinion of her, and that only Gods opinion should count. I talked to her about her weight lost goals and ways she could achieve them. Death was spoken but I thank a God that life overrides it. I say that because before I left the sister she was back to her joyful self.
Listen, many people have taken their life because someone said something mean to them. Souls are lost because of people's carelessness and violent use of their tongues daily. We must become more conscious of the things that we allow to flow out of our mouth. Why? Because God is holding us accountable for every injury or death that we are responsible for. Before you speak ask yourself is what I'm about to say is going to cause injury or death to someone. The Bible says to be slow to speak, so please take a minute and think about it.
People of God listen, we are supposed to lift up one another not tear anyone down. If there is something that needs (I stress the word Need) to be said. We should follow the instruction of Christ Jesus and do it in love and kindness, Jesus said with love and kindness have a drawn you. My mother would tell us this all the time " if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say nothing at all. Don't be murderer with your words, but speak life and God will reward you!

Jeremiah 32:27 says Behold I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me? What a question this is, and the fact that God is asking it absolutely blows my mind. Life throws all kinds of things at us and sometimes these obstacles seem to be too hard to bear . We pray and we ask God for direction and help to get us out of situations. We do well at first to follow the Bible and in prayer and supplication make our request known unto God. However when the weight of some situation come down on us, that's when the wavering begins.
When these bodies we have decide they don't want to act right and cause us pain. Even more so when we get a doctor’s report that is not so good, we start to question God. I have actually heard people say " I don't know if God can fix this problem". This statement always intrigues me because I know that God is the creatorof all things, and if He created it, fixing it is no task. I have come to realize that people think what is difficult for them to fathom is just as perplex for God. I must interject that notion right now, we are not even close to the knowledge of God. We must understand that God is all know and all seeing, He is the Alpha and the Omega. God is omnipresent that means He can be here, there and everywhere at the same time ( My God somebody better catch that). That means while He is here in the United States seeing about me, He is also across the world in Australia seeing about Linda. (I don't know who she is but that's what God just said to me). When we realize that there is no limit in God, we don't have to ask the question; can God?
God is able God, if He can part the Red Sea so that his children could pass over on dry land, why can't He move obstacles out of your way. I have sat and heard testimonies of God healing people from cancer and HIV. I have met people whom God has cured from ( in their words) "full blown Aids". This disease that man does not have a cure for(some say they do have a cure but it's more profitable to treat than to cure) and the prognosis is bleak for those affected by it. God has delivered people from this disease and they rejoice because He is able God.
Listen I don't know what you're facing in this life. It could be financial issues, health issues or emotional issues, I need you to understand that God is able to see you through. I also want you to remember great is God's faithful toward us, because He loves us. Everything that He has done to deliver His people He is able to do those same things. The Bible says He is the same God he changes not, so if He did it before he can do it again.
People of God Listen we serve an all-powerful God. He is asking the question is there anything too hard for me? My answer is no Lord there is nothing too hard for you, I trust you with my everything. I suggest you do that same thing, because when you put your life in God's hands you're in the best place. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding!

Psalm 28:7 says The lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him. I love this scripture for a couple of reasons. The first one is because it lets me know that the Lord is my strength and my shield. Have you ever been so tired that you didn't even feel like blinking. Could you imagine having a great battle and you defeat your adversary, and then another adversary comes and you have to do it all over again. I know so many people ask this question how do you continue on after all your strength is completely gone.
The Bible says that the Lord can be your strength and your shield. I love that because sometimes you don't have nowhere else to pull your strength from. Sometimes you can't pull strength from family or friends. It's not because they don't love or support you, however the reality is that they( at times) need a break also. You can't expect someone to strengthen you for a battle, when they're barely maneuvering through their own war. However, the Bible lets us know about an unlimited source of strength. What is it? So glad you asked; the Lord is an unlimited source of strength. Whatever you’re fighting with and you need strength to make it another day; call on the name of Jesus! When you call on the name of Jesus every part of you that felt like it wouldn't make it, now says I feel like going on. The same person who said I don't think I have the strength to make it another day, turnaround and say I'm ready for the battle.
I rejoice in the Lord daily because I know that when I am completely overwhelmed and all my strength is gone, I know that I can rely on the Lord to be my strength. When I can’t rely on myself. Not only can I rely on Him to be my strength but the Lord will also be my shield. The definition of shield is to protect (someone or something) from a danger, risk, or unpleasant experience. (My God I hope you caught that). Not only is the Lord going to be your strength, He is also going to protect you from danger, risk or unpleasant experience ( somebody needs to get excited!)
How do you get access to this strength and shielding? The Bible says my heart trusted in him and I am helped. That means that you have to have faith in the Lord that he is going to see you through whatever situation or circumstances you're dealing with. Even when it looks absolutely crazy and you don't see no way out. The Bible says trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding. You don't have to understand how the Lord is going to bring you out. Just have faith that He's going to do it! Understand that the fact that you trusted in the Lord is the reason that the Lord is going to help you. Your trust and faith in the Lord is what activates your miracle!
Listen The Lord is going to strengthen you and be your shield of protection, however you must trust in the Lord with all your heart. When you trust in the Lord with your everything that's how to activate your miracle.Not only that because of the miracle the Lord is going to do in your life, you’re going to have a crazy praise. The verse says, “therefore I greatly rejoiceth!” That means you're not going to have a little cute praise. You’regoing to praise the Lord like you done absolutely lost your mind ( that's how I describe a great praise!)
People of God listen I know that sometimes we get wary in well doing,. but the Bible says, for we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities. When you feel weak let the Lord strengthen you and shield you from every attack of the enemy. Hold on to your faith because you are about to unlock you miracle!

Has this scenario ever happen to you? God place a vision in your mind to do something great or small, and your initial thoughts were that's a great idea. Then as you sat there thinking about how you could bring the vision to fruition, doubt began to creep in. Then you start to feel overwhelmed and your thoughtsbecome how can I possibly pull this thing off. You start downingyourself saying “Well I can't do it because I don't have the skills or the knowledge.” You tell yourself I have never done this before, this vision that God gave me must be for somebody else (as if God makes mistakes). We lay out all kinds of excuses I'm too old, I'm too young, I'm too short or I'm too fat, you name it,we'll use it to not complete our assignments.
Once doubt has fully had its way with you then his big brother steps in, his name is fear! Doubt will stole you but fear will absolutely cripple you and send you to hide and take cover (No seriously). Have you ever been so afraid to face something that you couldn't get out of bed, you just hide under your covers? Fear can literally make you sick or even kill you! (That's why they have the term scared to death). Fear have stolen jobs, marriages, children, business, homes, cars, and even vacations from people. I read an article that said about 70% of Americans don't use their vacation time. Why? Because fear has convince them that if they go on vacation someone else is going to take their job, or that the company will realize they no longer need them (I'm in the 30%, because I believe what God has for me is for me, and when one door shuts a better one opens). Some people would probably say no I don't go on vacation because I can't afford it. My answer to that is haven't you ever heard of a stay-cation? (that means you take your vacation time and stay home).
How do you overcome fear? I'm so glad you ask! You first must realize that you can do all things through Christ Jesus. Why? Because doubt comes first and if you can cast down doubt his big brother fear won't show up. When doubt says you can't do anything, you reply I can do it because God says I can. When doubt says well you don't know what you're doing, you reply I might not know but my God knows all things (I say my because you have to take ownership! I belong to God and He belongs to me) and that's enough for me. When doubt says this is going to turn out bad for you, you reply, you can't write my story God is the author of my life. When doubt says that sickness is going to kill you, you reply no weapon formed against me shall prosper (I think you get it by now, fight back with the word!)
Listen if doubts big brother fear shows up, don't let him bully you! You have someone greater than he, call on the name of Jesus. Why? Because at the name of Jesus demons tremble! The next time fear has you hiding under your covers or feeling like your heart is going to come out of your chest. I dare you to just start calling on the name of Jesus. Say I need you right now Jesus, come see about me Jesus. I plead the blood of Jesus over my mind and my heart right now, fear you are a liar and I rebuke you in the name of Jesus! (My God I Feel That !). I promise you that fear is afraid when Jesus walks in the room!
People of God listen the Bible says God did not give you the spirit of fear but of love, power and a sound mind. I remind myself of this scripture all the time and after I say that scripture, I say I don't want anything God didn't give me. Don't allow fear to ever cripple you again, you have power over it. I encourage you to use that power don't let fear win not one more battle. Remember when in doubt use the word, when in fear call on Jesus!

I can remember having the worst tooth ache every. No seriously, it was so bad that I thought I was going to lose my mind. The kicker was that it began on a weekend so I had to wait to Monday morning to go to the dentist. Listen I had never been so happy to see Monday morning in my life! I couldn't sleep, think straight (have you ever been in so much pain that your thoughts wouldn't cooperate with you?) I couldn’t eat nor get out of bed, I was just down right in pain. I remember being engulfed in, the pain and feeling like it was never going to end. (isn't it crazy that when you're in pain whether it be physical or emotional, it's a struggle to see the end of the pain). Do you every notice that your focus is on what you're going through at that now and not what's going to happen then?) For example too many people commit suicide because of the pain they are currently in. They feel like there is no way out accept death. Why? Because they were so focus on what they were going through that they did not realize that there was a way out.
Pain has a way of making you believe that it will be a continuous state of life for you. Even when you have experience that kind of pain before and was able to overcome it, it still draws you in. For example, when someone gets their heart broken in a relationship and they feel completely devastated. However they have gone through that same exact hurt in a previously relationship. One would think that person would get it that sometimes relationships don't work out the way we hope. However there is always someone else that you can try build a life with ( simply put you can love again). With that being said why do people fall apart when they go through these painful situation. It's like pain wipes away your memory and you forget all the stuff you been through, and came out stronger.
What I'm saying is that pain can rule you if you give it the power to do so. You can take back the power from pain. How do you do that? I'm glad you ask; you must have a “this too shall pass mindset.” You know why because everything that is currently causing you pain at this present time shall pass! I want you to get this and understand trouble don't last always. The Bible says that there is a time and season for everything under the sun. You will have some painful seasons where you're hurting and you feel like theirs no way out. However if you could just think back over your life, and all the pain you been through but came out on top. Listen It deosn't matter if it wasn't the same pain you’re currently dealing with. Just like that old pain passed guess what so shall your current pain pass.
I read an article about pain and it said that if your feeling pain that is extreme, you can cause a pain at another part of the body and the brain will tell the body to focus on that pain. I tried that theory for myself I used to suffer from really bad migraine headaches (thank the Lord for healing). If you know anything about migraine headaches you understand that not only do you have extreme pain in your head, but your eyes also and extreme nausea (you know it's something when sound affect you, even your breathing). One day I was having an attack ( I call it that because I felt like I was in a battle!) and I just needed a little release from the pain. I remembered the article that I read and thought to myself let me try this out. I began to pinch myself on the hand and the crazy thing was I could only feel the pain from the pinch. The pinch had override the attack I was currently going through. Why? Because I was now focused on the pinch ( keep in mind I was not pinching myself that hard) and not the pain from the migraine, even though that pain was greater.
Listen your mind is powerful! The Bible says as a man/ woman thinketh so is he/she. If you sit and wallow on your pain and keep your mind focus on it. Your present situation is going to seem like a never ending one. You may end up in an absolute state of lost and despair. That's not what your creator intended for you! He intended for you to have the abundant life. If you have the mindset that whatever you're going through shall pass, you can have that abundant life.
People of God listen the Bible says the Lord will keep those in perfect peace who's mind is stayed on him. Keep your mind on the Lord and remember no matter what you're going through it shall pass. It deosn't matter if it's sickness, hurt emotional or physical, financial whatever it is; it shall pass! Get your mind focus right now to the end of that thing that you're going through. You're not lost and you're not hopeless you are just in a season of your life that will soon pass!

I truly believe that conversations are keys to unlocking what's been stored away in us. Conversations can also be mirrors to show us our true reflection that we otherwise couldn't see. When I wrote my book, Women On The Wall, booklet the Road To Purpose and Destiny and blogs, I write it as if I'm having a conversation with my readers. Why you ask? Because I believe that you're always one conversation away from your breakthrough, deliverance, healing and your purpose and destiny. I truly believe that a simple conversation can absolutely change your mind and in turn change your life.
Let me give you an example; The Bible talks about Jesus traveling and He had to travel through Samaria. Well Jesus decided to take a rest at the well while is disciples went to get something to eat. Lo and behold here comes this Samaritan woman to draw some water from the well. Jesus engaged her into a conversation about water and thirst (don't miss it). Jesus said to the woman "give me a drink" He asked her for one thing to open her up so he can access another. Jesus knew when he asked the woman for water ( Him being a Jew and her being a Samaritan) He would access her beliefs and ideology.聽( let me show you) Jesus said to the woman "Give me to drink" the woman responded " how is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria?" ( watch this) Jesus has now engaged her in a conversation and He now has access to what she believes and how she perceives her social status.
The conversation continues and now Jesus does a spiritual checkup on this woman. (watch this) Jesus said to the woman " if thou Knewest the gift of God, and who is that saith to thee, Give me to drink, thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given the living water.” Jesus gave her a spiritual question and she gave him a natural response. The woman’s response was " Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then has thou that living water? Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? (she is in knee deep now! look how Jesus responded). Jesus says "But whosever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst, but the water that I shall give him be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. (My God did you catch that) Jesus just crashed her belief process and in the most gentle and humbling way. She thought that their father Jacob was great that's why she asked the question "Are you greater than our father Jacob". Jesus didn't just flat out say yes! (even though he could have) but he let her know that, what her father Jacob gave her is temporal and what I can give you is everlasting, so yes I'm greater! The woman now views Jesus as someone who has something that she needs. Why do I say this? Because she says " Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw" ( Listen there is no way that you can come in contact with Jesus and not want what he has to offer!)
The conversation gets even more intense ( turn to your neighbor and say; some times Jesus has to get all in your personal business to completely set you free!) when Jesus tells the woman " Go, call thy husband, and come hither". The woman answered " I have no husband (watch this) "Jesus said unto her, thou hast well said , I have no husband. For thou has had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly." This part of the conversation just knocked her socks off! She now perceives that Jesus is a prophet which she states, and began to discuss with him about religious practices of her people. She talks about how her people worship God in the mountains but the Jews say that Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
Jesus tells her that the time is coming when neither of those option will be relevant. Jesus tells her "But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a spirit: and they that worship him, must worship him must in spirit and truth. (Do you see how he is renewing her mind?).
Listen Jesus has now set stage to give her what she really needed through this conversation. (Don't miss it!) The woman then says to Jesus "I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come he will tell us all things this conversation started out about water and look at God!) Jesus replied "I that speak unto thee am he" (I don't know about you but I'm having a praise break right here!) This conversation changed this woman's life! The Bible said that she left her water pot ( when you come in contact with Jesus you leave your old stuff behind!) and went into the city saying "Come see a man which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?" This conversation not only changed her life but the Bible says that "and many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.”
People of God listen the Bible says Faith comes by hearing. A conversation is an exchange of hearing and listening. When you hear something that your spirit can hold onto it can literally change your life!. This is why I believe that God laid it on my heart to have this GIRL TALK SUMMIT on November 14, 2015.

The Bible says in Jeremiah 31:3 The Lord hath appeared of the old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. I love this scripture for a couple reason, one is because of the intimacy with the Lord that is displayed. When you see that the lord expressing his love don't it just make your heart melt? ( watch how sweetly he expressed his love) The scriptures says the Lord said " I have loved thee with an everlasting love". (Watch this don't miss it) that means the Lord was saying I love you for eternity, endless, never-ending, perpetual, undying, ( my God did you catch that not even death can touch his love) abiding, enduring, infinite, boundless and timeless ( I could keep going but I think you get!) I hope somebody is excited with me about the kind of love we receive from our God. When we get down because life is pounding down on us, we must remember how our God feels about us. If you mess up and the enemy tries to make you think that God is done with you. Remember His word says that God has an undying love for you. That means even though you made detrimental mistake it did not cause the death of God's love ( I just said something). Now let me be clear a mistake is a action or a misjudgment, not a lifestyle. I want to be very clear that if you are continuously doing something ( I'm talking about things contrary to the word of God) your not making a mistake you are living a lifestyle. If you find yourself in a state of sin repent and let Gods undying love restore you ( I had go there the Holy Spirit wouldn't allow me to leave it like that).
I really want everyone to understand the love that God has for us. I want you to understand that because of that perpetual love He desires for us to be blessed. I'm stressing this love thing because I know when we are going through stuff we question Gods stance on our situation. We need God to weigh in on or circumstances, and when we don't see things moving the way we think it should ( I stress point the way we think it should). We began to question God why is he allowing us to deal with these issues. However if we always remember the kind of love God has for us, we will understand that this is a Romans 8:28 encounter. What is a Romans 8:28 encounter ? We know that all things work together for our good, to them that love God, to those who are the called according to his purpose.
The last part of Jeremiah 31:3 says with lovingkindness have I drawn you ( May God my soul loves Jesus). I love how sweet my Lord is He doesn't try to fear you into loving Him. God doesn't try to trick you unto loving Him and He doesn't need to be your last option. Listen just because of His lovingkindness is reason enough to want to be in His presence. The Bible says in the presence of God there is the fullness of joy! I was drawn to him because I wanted to experience that kind of love and joy! ( can I get amen!). God's lovingkindness drew me not because I was hell scared ( don't get me wrong I didn't want to go to hell). I wanted to know what this love thing was all about. I wanted to understand why the people of God could go through crazy situation, but still say it is well with my soul. I was feeling like the Apostle Paul when he said I'm in pursuit of Him to find out why he was in pursuit of me. When God extend his grace and mercy towards us, He's showing us lovingkindness to draw us in. Why you ask? Because He has an undying love for us.
People of God listen we must be the examples of God's undying love. I challenge you today to show lovingkindness to all believers and non believers. Why? Because we need to draw people to the true and living God! Jesus said if I be lifted up upon the earth he will draw "All Men" unto Him. How do we lift our Lord up? By showing lovingkindness. The Bible says how people will know you are one of the Lords disciple is that you show love one to another! I LOVE YOU WITH THE LOVE OF THE LORD

Proverbs 22:6 says train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. As our children are returning back to school I want to make sure we are fully preparing them for the school year. I know that you went out and purchased their nice outfits or their uniforms. You purchased their books, book bags and all the necessities you think they will need. Some people would stop right there because they believe that's all that their children need.
I find it interesting that we take precaution to vaccinate our children from viruses and diseases that we haven't seen in years. However many don't take precautions to cover their spirit. Children are constantly attacked in school by depression, peer pressure and all kinds of bullying to name a few. We send our children in an environment where there is all different kinds of cultures, religion, corruption, brokenness, perversion, life styles and a host of other things. Children carry whatever is present into their households. They are like little sponges soaking up everything that they come in contact with. That's why I find it funny when parents are in a tumultuous relationship, and they swear the children have no idea what's going on. (I know you are laughing with me about that statement) I hope we all know that statement is so far from the truth. The reality is that the children are well aware of what's going on; actually they probably understand the problem better than the parents do. I say all of that to say that you must prepare your children physically, emotionally and spiritually for them to have a successful school year. That's why you must do like the Bible says train up the children in the way he/she should go.
Let them know that they are the head and not the tail, that they are a chosen people a Royal Priesthood. Make sure their heads are held up because they are the king’s children. Make sure that they know that God did not give them the spirit of fear but of love, power and a sound mind. Remind them that they can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens them. Remind them that the righteous has never been forsaken nor their seed begging for bread. Let the children know that God wants us to show love one to another. Please let them know all of the blessings of God and the desire God has to give them,.Teach them about having faith the size of a mustard seed, and speaking to mountains and telling them to be moved!
Listen people of God you will only get out of your children what you put in them (I just said a mouth full) pray with your children and let them see your relationship with God. I learned that, praying is time that you spend talking with God and that you don't allow anyone to interrupt that time. I remember when my mother would be in her room praying and we would walk in to ask her for something. However she would not respond to us. I would see her on her knees with her legs shacking, and sometimes she would be crying. We learned quickly that she was in prayer talking with God and she was not going to respond until she finished her with conversation with him. We learned to respect her time with God, when we walked in on her and saw that she was praying, we would walk away and not say a word (she trained us well). Please remember that whatever you put into your children is what you’re going to get out. Why not let it be something wonderful!
Lord I pray that you cover every child that is in school. Lord cover them from kindergarten to college from all hurt harm and danger, keep them Lord. Lord I pray that every parent will pray over and with their children in this school year. God I pray that your spirit is increased in the schools this year. Lord I bind every spirit of depression, every suicide spirit, peer pressure and bullying spirit, right now in the name of Jesus Amen!

want to share a testimony with you (in my preacher voice is that alright). Seriously on Saturday August 29, 2015 I had a very important meeting to go to. God had lay something on my heart last year to do this year. I have been procrastinating and to be honest with you I ha allow fear to hold me back. This assignment God gave me is something that I have never done before. I don't know about you but when I am walking on unfamiliar territory its a little shaky for me. However God has been on my case telling me "the year is almost over and you have not completed that assignment". Listen when God is on your case it's only a matter time before you give in and say Yes Lord! (He has away of getting his point acrossyou don't know what I'm talking about just keep living you'll find out!)
I have this meeting scheduled and I up that morning feeling completely sick (no seriously everything hurt). I was about my condition because the day before I was completely fine. I went to work and after work I went to our weekly family bible study (we figured if a family that prays together stays together then imagine the benefits of a family that study the word of God together). I in my bed and tried to figure out what could possibly be wrong with me. As I there in thought I heard a voice say oh well you can't go to the meeting now; you're sick. That did something to me, it was like an alarm went off in my spirit and I went into fight mode! I knew this was not God telling me not to go or rather I can't go to the meeting (one thing I always pay attention to is the way things are said to me). I knew that this was spiritual warfare and I had to fight, because listen if the enemy is trying to hold you back from something that means God is about to do something Awesome!
I began to pray and said " God I know that you gave me this assignment and I will complete it, God whatever this is God I ask you to move it right now" I continued to lay in my bed and then I started doing a self diagnosis ( simply I was playing doctor). I said to myself well my head hurt and sinus is hurting so my allergies must be acting up. I got up and took some allergies medicine, and then I began to feel weak as if I haven't for awhile. I said well let me get something to eat, so I fixed myself something to eat. After I had eaten I still didn't feel right so I laid down again because I had time before my meeting. I heard the voice again this time it said you're not going to feel better just call and let them know you need to reschedule. I said devil you're a I'm going to this meeting no matter how I feel. I started texting my team letting them know what time we need to head out for this meeting. Then two of my team member got amnesia and text me back saying what meeting ( I almost lost it but God!). Listen when your head is pounding and your body is acting crazy you don't really have the stomach (literally in this case) to deal with other peoples crazy.
I got up and started to get ready to go to this meeting, still feeling horrible. I said God I'm going to this meeting no matter what, but please take away this sick feeling. I heard him say my grace is sufficient for you in your weakness I will be strong. My sister and team member pick me up and we are off to pick up the rest of the team. The moment I in the car I to feel nauseous (I thought Really Devil) and my stomach started to turn. I tried to compose myself and keep calm, thinking this to shall pass! No such Luck we were at a red light I took off my seat belt jumped out of the car and everything started coming back.(you know what I mean, trying not to gross y'all out!) I though I was done so I got back in the car but soon as we made a turn, I had to signal her to pull over ( you know the rest I will save you the details).
Listen I know that this was the enemy trying to stop me from completing my assignment. The moment I arrived to the meeting and down I didn't feel sick any longer. It was like instantly all the pain and pressure was gone! The meeting went great I will complete the assignment that God has given me before this year is finish (stay announcement coming soon). This is why I live and write about having relentless faith, because no matter what adversities you're faced with you must believe God! What makes me really rejoice is can't no devil, demon or hater stop you, when you know God is on your side! Listen my sister who never once suggested that we shouldn't go to the meeting, after having to pull over twice for me to jump out! That was confirmation for me that I had to complete this assignment. Why do I say that? My sister Lisa has a nurturing Mother spirit and the fact that she saw me in that condition, but did not suggest to cancel the
meeting was Devine!
People of God listen the enemy is like a roaring lion going about to see who he can devour. However don't get mad at the devil his doing his job, that's why you have to do yours. Understand that there will be times that you will have to complete your assignment weak, broken and even fatigue. However you must know that if God has given you the vision he has already provided provision! (I just said something) you'll better catch this if God has given you a vision He has already made provision! Listen have relentless faith when it comes to your purpose and destiny. When the question is asked what can separate me from completing my assignment? My answer would be sickness nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate me!!
I Love You With The Love Of The Lord
