Wednesday Word

Good morning Friend, 
Grace and peace be unto you!

Nothing but the Cross ] Live creatively, friends. If someone falls into sin, forgivingly restore him, saving your critical comments for yourself. You might be needing forgiveness before the day’s out. Stoop down and reach out to those who are oppressed. Share their burdens, and so complete Christ’s law. If you think you are too good for that, you are badly deceived.
Galatians 6:2 MSG

Sis, it is time for you to move in the creative power that God has put within you. Stop taking down because others don't see what you see. They are not supposed to because they don't have your assignment. Everything that you have gone through and have been forgiven from is part of your testimony. Use your testimony to empower others and help them tunnel through their dark days. Friend, you must be willing to be transparent while you are yet learning and growing. No, it is not easy or fun but someone needs you to be honest about your stuff so that they know they are not crazy.  The devil is an accuser of the brethren and he will speak to you until you believe you are losing your mind. I am here today to tell you that you are whole, you are made complete in Christ, and you have the victory. Sis, wipe your eyes and wash your face. You have got this. I love you to life.

Until tomorrow #liveBlessed

Transformation Tuesday

Good morning Friend,
Grace and peace be unto you!

I saw this quote and thought that is was so good and wanted to share it with you.

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
Albert Schweitzer

Wow, that is good. Will you be the person that lights someone else's flame? Will you be the catalyst for someone fulfilling their purpose? Will you be that little voice that someone needs to push through to the next day? Sis, don't sit on your testimony because it's not polished and perfect. That woman is waiting for you to be the torch lighter. She is waiting for your words to breathe life into her very belly. You went through every moment of hell for this very moment. This is your opportunity to speak. Tell your story. Don't allow anyone to snuff your firestarter out. You are the person that will set that sister on fire again. Don't be afraid. Just do it.

Until tomorrow #liveBlessed

Monday Movitvation

Good morning Friends,
Grace and peace be unto you!

I just want to remind you today that no matter what you have gone through, it didn't take you out, so you still have a chance. Life circumstances can get so overwhelming that you feel like giving up and hiding away. I just want to remind you that everything the enemy brought your way did not kill you. Let that sink in before we go in any further. You are alive, and it is not because the enemy wanted you to be, but it was God's grace and mercy. With that being said, don't forget the one that hates your victory will never stop pursuing you, but greater is he that is in you then he that is after you. You are powerful through Christ. Every pursuit of the enemy is to keep you from operating the blessed place that is assigned to your life. Don't forget that you are blessed to be a blessing. There is somebody out there waiting to hear your testimony. Your victory over your test is what will bring them forth to their victory. Don't stop. Don't quit. Don't give up.

Mark 9 message 
23 Jesus said, “If? There are no ‘ifs’ among believers. Anything can happen.”
24 No sooner were the words out of his mouth than the father cried, “Then I believe. Help me with my doubts!”

What a lesson. Take the if out of your vocabulary. Just believe that All things are possible. Everything we can dream of is possible as long as we believe. Trust God even when you can't trace him. He is faithful and will not abandon us in times of need. Just in case you have had one too many conversations with the enemy and got you thinking crazy.

In 24 the father says I believe and help with any doubt that might be lurking in the background. Many of us have been told so many lies that we aren't sure of the truth. Those places of unstableness are where the enemy beats us up. Just starts saying you believe until it moves from your mouth to your ears. From your ears to your head and from head to your heart. It doesn't happen overnight because you have years of lies to crush, but here is shouting ground. Sis, truth rushes every lie every day. Serve that one to the devil.

Good morning Friend,

Change only comes when you open your mind to the possibilities that the inconvenient things that are happening in your life are producing transformation. See, you and I want change, but we only want it when it is easy. This change that we are seeking will take some WORK. Don't fall for the Okie Doke. There is no quick fix to get you to that place called change.

Today is the time they commemorate Columbus Day (how do you discovery something with inhabitants?) In that spirit, today I want you to make a discovery of your own. What makes you excited to be alive? When you discover this it will make it easier to say NO to things that don't. Everywhere I go people are always talking about how busy they are. Sis, you are only as busy as you think you are. Busy is a state of mind and an excuse to keep people at bae. My challenge to you is to figure out what makes your heart skip a beat and discard the other stuff. It is time for you to start moving with the things that give you life not drain you. When you discover you, everyone around you will be happy.

Good morning friends,

Psalm 121 A song of ascents.
1I lift up my eyes to the hills-- where does my help come from? 2 My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.3He will not let your foot slip-- he who watches over you will not slumber; 4indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. 5The LORD watches over you-- the LORD is your shade at your right hand; 6the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. 7The LORD will keep you from all harm-- he will watch over your life;8the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

I love this version of the scripture. It asks where does my help come from. It comes from the Lord. The one that made heaven and earth. The one that strung the stars in the sky and painted the earth with the waters. If he is that careful of heaven and earth how much more does he care about you that were made in his image.

The psalmist goes on to say that the Lord that created these heavens will not allow the sun or the moon to overtake you. He will be your shade. He will be your bodyguard watching over your coming and going. Wow! That right there is shouting ground. The God of the universe, your father is so concerned that he puts a detail out to watch over you. To keep you from falling.

A word of caution. Don't try to outrun your protection. I remember Michelle Obama saying that sometimes they just wanted to be regular and go to ordinary places but they were always flanked with bodyguards. She shared about a time that she and one of their daughters escaped for a time just to have fun. Nothing happened to them but the Lord just said don't try to outrun or hide from my protection. Stay in his will. It's the safest place to be. Thank you Clark Sisters.

Tuesday Transformation

Good morning Friends,
Grace and peace be unto you!

Change starts in your mind and then it radiates out. Whatever I consistently think I will act upon, and I will consistently see the manifestation of said thoughts. So, if we are going to transform our actions we have to start with our thoughts. What am I thinking about? What do I meditate on?

My mind is the laboratory for my actions. What am I cooking up in my lab today? Are they thoughts of peace and goodwill, or doom and evil? Do I see the best in my sister or am I looking for a flaw so I have something to tear her down with? Take some time to as Joyce Meyers says, think about what you are thinking about. Really begin to analyze your thought life and see what is being produced out of it. If you don't like what is coming out then you have to do something about what is going in.

Good morning Friends,
Grace and peace be unto you!

It is a very cold day in KAKE land. LOL, I am not ready. Yes, it is cold and I still need to cut my grass. People question global warming because...?  Anyway, that is not what we are here to talk about today.

Here is a little motivation for your tired soul. Don't put off for tomorrow what you should be doing today. Stop. Before you say, "But I'm so busy". You are as busy as what you say and what you prioritize. I would say that I live a pretty densely packed life. Some by choice and some because I am still learning the art of NO. However, I get in the things that are important to me. So, that means that sometimes I might marking going on facebook (mainly so it sends me a reminder) and I might not come. My nonattendance is not because the event was not important but because there was something that took precedence at the moment. As women, we come to those moments in our lives where you know I need to be right here, right now, to be a blessing and to receive one. By all means, have and keep your schedule but do not be a slave to it. Yes, by all means, be that dependable person that your integrity is calling you to be. By all means, be a person of your word, but do not become such a slave to your calendar and being there for everyone that you lose you.

YOU must manage self with everything you have within you! Yes, it is cool for your kids to be active and involved in sports but sometimes they need to just sit down somewhere and so do you. So, back to don't put off for tomorrow what you should do today. Take the time to talk to a friend, to write a letter, to take a walk, or something else that simply feeds your spirit. Everything thing in our world is moving at rapid speed, but I encourage you to slow down and notice your environment. The beauty in nature and the awesome wonder that is the smile of a little baby. Somethings just need to happen today. Life is so short don't miss an opportunity under the guiles of I am busy.

Friday focus

Good morning friends.
Grace and peace be unto you!

It is so easy to lose focus when your world is chaotic. Take some time this weekend to get organized.
I bought new shoe bins to organize (hide) my shoes. Feel like Christmas when a pair of shoes I haven't seen in awhile pop out from under the bed. Lol

I don't know about you but it is time for me to thin my closet. Any clothes that I did not wear this summer can go. If I was going to wear them I would have. Let it go. Make space. Some of you said space for what? Make space for space. To get focused you need space that is uncluttered. Sometimes we develop a hoarder mentality. More doesn't always equal greater. Sometimes it equals cluttered.
See how much better you sleep and how much fresher your house smells when the clutter is eliminated. Try it and let me know how it helps.

Wednesday Word

Good morning friends,
Grace and peace be unto you!

An angry person stirs up conflict, and a hot-tempered person commits many sins. Proverbs 29:22 NIV

This scripture doesn't need a lot of commentaries written about it. I think we see this on every cop show that has ever been aired. When people lose their temper things go bad.

Today, I want you to evaluate the things that are going on around you. Are you the anger that is stirring the pot. Does your rage, mistrust, and self-loathing bring the kindling needed to bring the fires you are seeing?  If we are honest everybody is not just picking on you. There is something that you have chosen to hold on to that people are either attracted or repelled from inside of you.

This new month is a good time to empty out all of the old stale stagnant stuff we've been holding on to. Go into the fall season lighter and weight free. It might help you make better Christmas shopping decisions. When you're free you don't have to shop out of guilt. Get free and stay free.

Thursday Thoughts

Good morning Friend,
Grace and peace be unto you!

I have been reading a book called the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker. So for the rest of this year (that sounds like a long time but it is only 13 weeks, scary), I will be sharing some nuggets with you during our Thursday Thoughts time from Millionaire Mind.

Today's thought- My inner world creates my outer world. If we think about this declaration it is very true. If my spirit is at peace it reflects in everything that I do. If it is not it will also reflect in everything I do. Take a moment and think about a situation that got out of hand. What was happening inside you that allowed you to go there? You allowed the outside to determine your inside. You allowed something external to disturb your internal peace. You must determine the temperature of your environment. You are a thermostat, not a thermometer. Allow your inner world to determine what you see manifest in your world.

Good morning friends,

What a difference a day makes. Yesterday was September and I was sick today is October and I feel better.

As you transform this month I encourage you to do a couple of things.
1. Walk every day this month. 15-30 mins a day. The temperature is getting better and the sunlight will help you if you get seasonal blues.

2. Eat better. It's a new month. Remember,  transformation starts in your mind. Lol, it was funny how I had committed to cleansing this month and my little body ailment started the process for me. Lol

3. Find some good reading material that will illuminate your thinking. Can't transform if you're still thinking like you're in the gutter.

4. Make it a point to catch up with people that you have been meaning to take to. I know of 3 people that passed unexpectedly over this weekend. Talk while you have a chance.

Finally, know that just like the trees lose their leaves we too are changing and transforming each and every day.  Don't get sidetracked or complacent. Keep pushing.

As we continue to transform our minds,  bodies, and spirits we have to consider timing. Everything works out the way it is supposed to if we take our hands off of it. Some things don't need you to give cents added to it. Be at rest knowing your Father has it. Babies don't know where their next meal is coming from but they know somebody's bringing me a bottle. I don't care who's holding they just want the bottle.

Like that baby, it's time to stop being anxious about everything and lay back in your Father's arms knowing he's got you.

It is finally Fall. While I enjoy parts of this season, likes sweaters, fire pits, and boots. I don't like the fact that it gets dark so early. That being said, What do you change in your routine when it gets dark earlier? How will you use this change of routine as a benefit to you?

If you are at home more when it's dark early will you read more? Will you gain some other kinds of healthy habits? I know it easy to start baking and cooking up heavy foods when it's cool but don't lose everything you worked on over the summer. Think about your fall/winter routines now so you won't be blindsided.

This morning I encourage you to focus on your life plan. Do you have a will, life insurance, and a burial plan? September is national life insurance month. Make sure you have some. It is selfish for you to say I'm not leaving nothing to these people.

The bible tells us that a good man leaves an inheritance for 3 generations after him. So, seriously you are not going to make sure your people can bury you and pay bills for at least one year after your passing. Your kids can walk up to my daddy's not here but here's my tuition in full window.

Lord, please hear me, acknowledge that I am in pain. Acknowledge that you are still there. Acknowledge that I am not alone, even though I feel like it.

Today I just want to remind you that God has not forgotten you. Yes, you might feel alone, but that is an illusion from the enemy. You have been heard and your situation is being worked out. It might not come in the time frame or package that you want, but the answer is coming. I am praying for each and every one of you that are experiencing trying times.

Yes, it is scary to let go of what you have always known but I promise you the woman that you are evolving into is a much better woman. Focus on your goals and don't let anything stop you. What does living your best life look like? Write it down. Take pictures and add them to it. Focus on what your good life looks like so you can stop focusing on the past.

Isaiah 26:3-4 says, People with their minds set on you, you keep completely whole, steady on their feet, because they keep at it and don’t quit.
Depend on God and keep at it because in the Lord God you have a sure thing.

Where is your mind today? Is it set on things above or on things of this earth? There are so many variables in our lives that can get us off track, depending on ourselves when we need to be totally dependent on God. Before you say it, yes I know being totally dependent on God is hard because we don't get say so and we are not in control but how has that been working so far? Me being in control of me is not always the best answer. I would venture to say it is the same for you. Sometimes I want to quit. Sometimes I want to throw in the towel. However, if I can stay focused on God he gives us the ability to keep focused and pushing forward. 

Life is hard but it's hard without him. Put your trust in your father. Lean back and relax your daddy has god you. He's a sure thing.

Ladies, if you have not checked your calendar August is almost over. WHAT? Yes, I know it just started yesterday and now we are almost in Septemeber. With the days flying by like they are what are you doing to make sure that you have your business in order? Do you have your retirement planning done? Do you know what the rest of 2019 looks like for you? Have you sought God for direction for what the rest of 2019 is supposed to look like?

It is so easy to just start making plans and filling our calendars without seeking real direction and knowing what the real goal is. We all want to be financially secure but what does that look like and what are you and I willing to do to make that happen? Never be so caught up in wealth and success that you get unbalanced. Having things without peace is not worth it. Nobody wants to be poor but peace and clear direction are more important than millions. Seek peace and direction and once you obtain them walk therein. I am seeing people young and old all around me leaving this life and many of them are doing so without being fulfilled in their lives. This doesn't have to be your or my story. When you know better you do better.

Yesterday I had a video shoot for a fairly major organization so I decided to get my face beat (put on make up). It is not something I do often but it's a fun change up. My husband smiled when he saw me and said it looked but that I was just fine without it. Later, I post a picture on Facebook. I got lots of comments from I didn't recognize you to cute. All that to say this.
I can see how some people can loose themselves behind social media. If I was looking for :friends" ,validation,  a stroke to my bruised ego I could have received it. If I was not stable in who I am I would be looking to do things that would get me those kinds of comments everyday. Needless to say I will stick to my lipstick,  mascara, eye color look and keep it pushing.
I appreciate the love but I was to stay focused on the important stuff. Make sure you are beautiful on the inside and the rest will take care of itself.

Good morning,

The scripture that is laying on my heart this morning is, 


Isaiah 54:17 Amplified Bible (AMP)

“No weapon that is formed against you will succeed;
And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn.
This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord.

No matter what we are going through today God is just reminding us that it will not succeed. The devil might form the weapons because the ones he used yesterday didn't work but they too will not succeed. Don't get distracted by the arrows whizzing by your head. Stay focused on your peace. Peace in your mind, body, and spirit. Resist the urge to chase down the people with your name in their mouth. Truth always wins out.

Transformation Tuesday

Good morning, 
Grace and peace be unto you!

Four questions, from the 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace,  to ask yourself as you continue your transformation.

Are you creating more value than you are taking?
In life, you are going to assume one of two positions. Either you will seek to create value for others or you will position yourself to extract value for yourself. Good leaders inspire people to move beyond being value consumers (simply seeking “What’s In It For Me”) to value contributors.

Are you leaving a positive wake?
A boat going through water leaves a wake behind it. Our lives, too, leave a ripple as we cruise through various environments. That wake will either be positive or negative. We all have that person in our lives that we try to avoid. The one who sees a dark lining in every bright cloud; that person who saps our energy with their negativity. But we also have those individuals who brighten our day with their smiles and words of encouragement.

What problem are you solving?
The world is filled with problem identifiers. They are the complainers who cast aspersion and blame for something gone wrong rather than taking responsibility for resolving it. But, the best way to create value and the fastest way to make a positive wake is to find the biggest problem you can find and apply your passion and strengths to solve it.

What part are you willing to own?
Ownership empowers people to take responsibility for creating value. Healthy people want autonomy and an opportunity to grow in self-mastery.

Today I want to remind you to be thankful for life, health, and strength. Too often we take things for granted and they could be sucked away so quickly.

There was a death in our family last week fairly unexpected. While you might not be 100% all the tune you don't expect to die. Some of you will say that's pretty a matter of fact and you are right. We fear death because it is the ultimate in change and things that are not within our complete control. Instead of being fearful be ready. Have you affairs in order. Make plans with the mortuary of your choice to pick out everything you want. Make sure there is a policy to cover it. Write out your obituary so what is said is true and reflects your life completely and not just the pieces your loved one were a part of. There was life pre-children.

Don't put it off. Yes, it is uncomfortable but it is necessary. The most loving thing you can do for your family is to make them not have to think about a thing. Have everything planned.

What is your love language? In our crazy busy world, it is easy to ignore speaking our families love languages. It is also important that you keep your in mind as you determine how matriculated through relationship ebbs and flows.

WORDS OF AFFIRMATION: In the age of technology, we can often overlook the simple pleasure of receiving a postcard. Why not pick up or design a few postcards you can keep on hand at home or the office? Write a short note of encouragement and commit to sending a postcard a day to different individuals for 30 days. Be careful though; you just may get addicted to the joy of brightening someone's day!

ACTS OF SERVICE: Studies have shown that clutter increases stress. If a friend or family member has been too busy to straighten up or get things in order, offer to help them organize. Choose a day you can tackle the kitchen drawers, child's playroom, garage, car, or other space. Set a time, and show up ready to help. After you are done, celebrate your accomplishment together!

GIFTS: Do you have some gently used items around the house that you don't use anymore? Look around and notice who might those items bless if you were to gift them. Whether it's a pair of old sunglasses, a lamp that someone has commented on, or cell phone sitting in a drawer, paying it forward can be fun and rewarding—it's a win-win!

QUALITY TIME: If you have a little extra money, watch the airline specials. When you see a stellar deal on tickets to an obscure location, research fun activities in the area. If you find a famous "dive" restaurant, community festival or celebration, or historic attraction, see if you can put together a quick, inexpensive day trip with a friend.

PHYSICAL TOUCH: We often underestimate the value of sitting in close proximity to those we love. Whether you are in a restaurant or watching TV on the couch, be mindful that you are not routinely separating yourself physically. Depending on the relationship, be aware of comfort levels, but be generous with your presence.

Wednesday Word

Good morning, 
Grace and peace be unto you!

Today and in days moving forward, declare the following scripture over your life. 

Proverbs 10:7a(KJV) The memory of the just is blessed... In our society, we are so busy being busy that we forget some things. Declare over your life that your memory is blessed. Trust me, I am adding this to the things that I daily declare over my life.

Transformation Tuesday

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

This morning as I was scrolling I saw the picture below and it really spoke the truth I needed to hear and you probably do too. We are emotional beings. It's what helps to distinguish us from some of the other creatures on the earth but we can not all our emotions to rule us. When we are ruled by our emotions we become unstable because our emotions can change with our circumstances, hormones, and moods.

Emotionally mature people are not moved by every wind that blows. They take their time to analyze and determine the best course of action even when it doesn't benefit them. I'll be honest I'm not totally there yet but it's a goal that I'm working toward.

We have to move past our hurts and pains to get to a place of stability and maturity. I'm not saying it's easy but it is necessary if we want transformation in our lives.

Monday Motivation

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

I was looking at a box of light bulbs. On the side, it says how many lumens each one has and the anticipated longevity of each. So, how does that relate to you and I? Many of us are going through life and not really being cognizant of how and with whom we spend our time but just like the light bulb you only have some many hours of light within you. When your bulb goes out that is it. Who and what are you shining your light on? There are only 148 days left of 2019. What do you still need to accomplish? Don't get complacent and procrastinate the year away. Make these last 148 the best part of this year. You can do it. I am here cheering you on. Greatness is in your future.

Wednesday Word

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

Hallelujah! Blessed man, blessed woman, who fear GOD, Who cherish and relish his commandments, Their children robust on the earth, And the homes of the upright—how blessed! Their houses brim with wealth And a generosity that never runs dry. Sunrise breaks through the darkness for good people— God’s grace and mercy and justice! The good person is generous and lends lavishly; No shuffling or stumbling around for this one, But a sterling and solid and lasting reputation. Unfazed by rumor and gossip, Heart ready, trusting in GOD, Spirit firm, unperturbed, Ever blessed, relaxed among enemies, They lavish gifts on the poor— A generosity that goes on, and on, and on. An honored life! A beautiful life! Someone wicked takes one look and rages, Blusters away but ends up speechless. There’s nothing to the dreams of the wicked. Nothing. Psalm 112 MSG

You are blessed to be a blessing.

Removing doubt is so important in making progress toward being whole.  While others might tell you of your greatness until you believe it you will not operate in it. Crush doubt and walk in your power. You were made for this.

Thursday Thought

Good morning
Grace and peace be unto you.

My thought today is really simple. Make you a priority. It is easy to give until you are empty, tired, and depleted, but it's not healthy. Take little moments to take care of you. Your mental health is worth it.

Wednesday Word

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

Then the angel of the Lord came again a second time and touched him and said, “Get up, and eat, for the journey is too long for you [without adequate sustenance].”So he got up and ate and drank, and with the strength of that food, he traveled forty days and nights to Horeb (Sinai), the mountain of God. I Kings 19:7-8

Too often in our walk with Christ, we can be spiritually minded that we neglect our natural bodies. I can't find any scripture that lines up with this thinking.

Here in I Kings, Elijah is encouraged to eat and rest for strength so that he could gain strength for the next phase of his journey. It is imperative that care for both our bodies and our spirits. If you have been neglecting to take care of your body time to get a check-up. Don't hesitate. Thinking will get you in trouble. Just move. You have work to do and it can't be fulfilled if you are not whole in your body.

Good morning,

Today I want you to take some time to sit quietly and get to know you. Too often in this loud and chaotic world, we get so accustomed to noise that being quiet makes us uneasy. Take some time to just sit and be quiet. Learn to be with yourself and quiet all of the foolishness in your brain. Yes, I will admit that this is difficult but necessary to get clarity.

Friday Focus

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

Don't focus on the things you don't have, but allow yourself to see what you have been blessed with. Take time to focus on your blessings no matter how small.  Somebody didn't wake up and you are here to fight another day. Thankful for this, and every day.

Until Monday

Wednesday Word

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

I am convinced and confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will [continue to] perfect and complete it until the day of Christ Jesus [the time of His return]. Philippians1:6 AMP

God has begun a good work in you, now what are you going to do with it? Yes, the work has begun but you have to water it,  fertilized it, and dig around it to make it grow. God begins the work and you must continue the progress to see what it shall be. Don't give up too soon. There is a reward if you hang in there.

Transformation Tuesday

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

When transforming your life it is important to have models and guides in your life.  Both help in different ways. Models show us the example of how to attain our goals and reach for things we didn't know existed, while guides walk alongside us and help us get through the weeds to reach our goal. Again, both are necessary because my eyes have to be open to the possibilities of more as I'm being helped through the ebbs and flows of life. 

Find those people that you are supposed to be connected to and shed dead weight. It's time to make some moves.

Vision will dictate your friends. #mylesmonroe

Friends make sure that as you are building your vision, you guard who you bring into your circle. Everyone is not your friend. Some people are there to talk you out of your vision. Others are there to steal the thoughts before you can get them birth completely. As we begin this new week take the time to see who is in your circle. Evaluate those around you. Remember Jesus only had 3 in his inner circle. Who is your inner circle? Do they build you or are you the one doing all of the work? Do they help to open doors for you as well as themselves or do they just jump through the doors you open? Check your circle.
