Wednesday Word

Good morning friends, 
I found this poem and wanted to share it with you this morning.  It made me question my awareness of my surroundings.
Awareness
“God – let me be aware. Let me not stumble blindly down the ways, Just getting somehow safely through the days, Not even groping for another hand, Not even wondering why it all was planned, Eyes to the ground unseeking for the light, Soul never aching for a wild-winged flight, Please, keep me eager just to do my share. God – let me be aware. God – let me be aware. Stab my soul fiercely with others’ pain, Let me walk seeing horror and stain. Let my hands, groping find other hands, Give me the heart that divines, understands. Give me the courage, wounded, to fight. Flood me with knowledge, drench me in light. Please, keep me eager just to do my share. God – let me be aware.” Miriam Teichner

I don't want to be so focused on me, myself and I that I miss the plan of God and how he wants to use me to bless someone else. It is not all about me. But it is about how I use my gifts and talents in his kingdom.

And as always... remember to live Blessed

Good morming,
I would like to thank all of you that supported over this weekend. Soon as I get pictures from the photographer,  I will share.
So today I just want to encourage you to follow your dreams. I know,  the flood of excuses flooded your mind, but put those thoughts to the side and just dream for a minute.  What would you do if you knew failure wasn't a factor? Some of you know, that one of my goals was to get my doctorate. It has not been easy but I will walk in May. I set our to provide quality empowerment sessions for the community and don't get me wring, thete have been challenges but I know it's the plan of God.
Honestly, I don't know exactly where God is taking me or you in this next season, but I think we need to put on our seatbelts, sit back and enjoy the ride. He is God of opportunity so don't let them slip by. Seize every change as if it's your last. Fear is just false evidence appearing real. You already have the vision let's bring it to pass.
And as always...remember to live Blessed

Wednesday Word

Good morning
This morning I want to encourage you to release. Release the pressure, release the stress, just exhale and release.
Right now we are living in a very high pressure society. It is very easy for us to take the pressure/stress and internalize it as rejection.  When we feel rejected,  we then project that rejection on to other people and situations. So, I feel pressure on my job, but now I think because my husband is busy and cant immediately sit down to talk, he's rejecting me too. This sends me into a tirade that makes me feel even more rejected and in the end only the enemy wins.

Satan is slick and knows how to get us by our reactions to situation that we encounter.  He is not all knowing, he is just all ease dropping. In other words the enemy just like the kid in class that talks about your mama to see how you react. When you react in the way that he hoped the battle is on. 

Ephesians 6:12 (KJV)
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places

Denounce the works of the enemy in your life. He is trespassing on holy ground. Learn to totally trust and depend on Jesus. He will bring you through. Give yourself completely and totally over to God.
As always remember to...live Blessed

Good morning,
I hope that you are safe this morning,  it appears to be storming in some for across America.

I ran across this picture this morning and it seemed to share where I'm at.
Life is like a camera, capture the good times, develop from the negatives and if things don't work out take another picture.
What pictures are you taking along the journey? Don't wait until you or a loved one has been diagnosed with something.  LIVE and capture every moment.  Take time to talk, to laugh and to be in the moment.  The thing about a picture is, it never lies. It either is what you would like to see or not but it doesn't lie.

Don't let your faulty memory be the thing you hold on to. Capture the moment. 
I have a friend who is being ravished by cancer.  At these moments you think of all of the times that you could have, but didn't. Ladies seize every moment with your family. Just as she seemed on the outside to be just find we never know what is cookin' on the inside.

Take your pictures and then take some more. Capture every moment.
As always ...live Blessed

Thursday Thoughts

Good morning,
Today I am so greatful for life.  I am watching a dear vibrant friend struggle through some very difficult health issues. On one side you know that God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above all that we could ask or think. On the other hand you hear the diagnosis and know the prognosis and it makes you think.

Thinking, what am I doing to take care of myself? How do I encourage you through this? Wrestling with the fact that I know my friend is tired of being sick but this is only the beginning. What do you say?

Lord just give me wisdom. Friends, please get check ups, eat right, exercise and get your body more alkaline. Nothing is fool proof but why not stack the chips in your corner? Pray for my friend.  The name is not important,  just your prayers.

Not really long today just please be wise in you decision making for your health.

Good morning,
This morning I wanted to share a article that was shared with me. So often the concept of the end times seems like just  a story.  A story that will be et happen in our lifetime but I would ask you to really watch what is going on around you. 
For so long as "church" people, we have been so heavenly minded that we are no early good. The bible on several occasions admonishes us to watch and pray.  We need to see that the enemy is on his job even when we are not.

Monday Motivation

Good Morning 
I want to share something with you that I heard this weekend and it made me think. We have to shift our focus from "What can I get out of this?" to "How can I do this to bless someone else?" That was pretty powerful to me because in life we tend to look at situations to figure out what can I get out of it or how is it going to benefit me?

I/we have been challenged to think differently. Not what do I get but how can I use what I have to bless those that I encounter? If I can use my gifts, talents and resources to make someone else's day God will make mine in ways that I can't even imagine. 

Matthew 25:40Then the King will say, ‘I’m telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me.’ I know our society is crazy busy and always adding to our schedules, but let's slow down enough to notice those around us. To truly look into the eyes of someone we encounter and being a blessing. Too often we equate being a blessing to giving people money and while it is helpful it doesn't fix everything. Some people just need someone to be there with them to hold their hand and assure them that it really will be ok. Others just need that dress that will never get into again. Look for opportunities to be a blessing.

Thursday Thoughts

Good morning,
Lots of thoughts, but I will focus. Many of us are in transition in our lives right now,  and as we go through people have ideas about how they think your transition should look.

I have come to the conclusion that I just want to hear a word from God. When he speaks, things have to come into alignment.  When he speaks, people that don't like me have to bless me. When he speaks, the gates of hell tremble. I just need him to speak.

I don't want  to know your opinion,  I just need you to pray for God to speak. Clearly and discisively, speak Lord. Who will pray with me?
As always my sistahs...live Blessed

Wednesday Word

Good morning
The word that came this morning was from Deuteronomy 31:6 (AMP)
Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble in dread before them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not fail you or abandon you.”

Wow, what little word but what power...FEAR. It can paralyze the biggest giant and the smallest baby, fear. Too often in our society it is the ruler of most of our decisions. Fear

Fear is a belief that someone or something is dangerous,  however that believe is not always based in truth.  So if I believe the lies the enemy tells me I will never break free of the bondage that comes with the prison of fear. Prison, yes prison, because once fear comes he brings all of his buddies and they have a party inside your head. Doubt, lonelinesses, self loathing, and paranoia just to name a few. The party is only broken up by the word of God. Of this is you,  just know that it's a lie. Everything the enemy tells you is a lie. You can and will walk in victory.

Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble in dread before them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not fail you or abandon you.” You and I don't have to be afraid because our father is hung before us to fight the enemy on our behalf. Another scripture tells us to be strong in the Lord and to put on his armor. Yet, another place tells us to he will never leave us nor forsake us. This is a faith walk. Our faith has to obliterate or fear.

Today my sister I stand with you believing that as you allow God to go before you,  you WILL walk in faith and not in fear. We will not believe the false evidence that appears to be real.

As always remember...live Blessed

Good Monday morning!
I'm alive, I'm awake and I'm ready to have a great day. Wow., O just spent a very powerful weekend being empowered to do more,  for my future. I got away from the seminar long enough to go to church.  I got there in the middle of the message but, pastor was explaining how the words that are spoken are internalized and then spoken by you.

Right there God said start calling yourself a millionaire. I might not look like it today, but when it happens,  and it will,  don't hate. Because soon as I said it some yall stopped reading. But you have say it until internalized it. Then you can walk like it, talk like it and post importantly live like it. STOP when I say live like I'm not talking materially. The more money I have the more God has to bless others, through me. Pay your tithes and give your offering even if you are not a regular attender. The principle works if you work it.

So your task is to say, I'm a millionaire until it gets from your mouth to spirit man.
