Transformation Tuesday

Good day friends 
Grace and peace be unto you!

On this very last day of the month, year, and decade I want you to reflect on all of the transforming situation that have occurred this year. Some of them might not have felt good but worked for your good. Some of them might of have felt good but they stunted your growth. Other situations were wins all the way around. Fortunately or unfortunately it takes the good and the bad to truly transform is into the person we were created to be. 

Don't get stuck in 2019 because greater is coming. You must let go of the past so that your hands are free to grasp the new. Don't settle for leftovers. Sis, you deserve the best. I can wait to see you in the new year. 

Until next year, #liveBlessed

Good day friends 
Grace and peace be unto you!

Today is day 5 if Kwanzaa the theme for the day is purpose. Do you really understand you purpose in this life and are you living it out? Too many people are aimlessly trudging through their existence hitting and missing at various things but never striking true purpose. Knowing that there is more but not being able to touch or feel it's ever engulfing presence. Purpose alludes so many. 

Friend I want to encourage you today to find your purpose. That thing that makes your heart skip. That thing that wakes you up with true exhilaration. That thing that you were set on this earth to do or provide to the earth. See we all have a purpose but it is for you to discovery what it is. 

Like snowflakes no two people have to exact same purpose. Even if we work in the same industry we are called to different people to fulfill a different niche in the lives of those around us. Don't go into 2020 without discovering your purpose. It will set you free.

Wednesday Word

Good day friends, 
Grace and peace be unto you!

The word for the day: Luke 1:68-70  (ERV)

“Praise to the Lord God of Israel. He has come to help his people and has given them freedom. He has given us a powerful Savior from the family of his servant David. This is what he promised through his holy prophets long ago.

I don't know about you but I get excited when I think about the freedom that comes when you don't have to handle life on your own. Too often in this life, we are so bound by the weights of this world and our everyday grind that we allow ourselves to be bound. Bound with fear, self-doubt, lies, insecurity, depression, and many other attributes but today I want to remind you that just like you allowed bondage to grip your life you can allow freedom to open the locks. The power of life and death are in your tongue. 

The verse above says he has given us a powerful savior. Not a weak incapable savior. A powerful one that cares about you, but like a perfect gentleman is waiting for you to invite him into your situation. Sis, you can't fix it, if you could you would have already. It is time for you to give yourself a gift this Christmas. A gift of release. Find you some quiet me time and start to write down the things you want to leave in 2019. You don't have to take your chains with you. Queen, you were designed to reign and rule and to beg and grovel. Walk-in your freedom.

Transformation Tuesday

Good day friends,
Grace and peace be unto you!

Today I want you to check your state of mind. Do a check-in on yourself. You can not help anyone around if you are not whole. Make sure that you are listening to your body, mind, and spirit man. When you are tired pay attention. Tired is not always because you have been missing sleep. Your mind and spirit can be tired and as you give and serve others. 

With shorter times of daylight and cold weather it is easy to hibernate. Resist the urge but do take care of you. 

My friend, NO is a complete sentence and while many don't like to hear it come out of your mouth saying it is neccessary. Don't be afraid to let people know your capacity. It is also okay to ask for help. You don't have to be everything for everybody. Be selfish.

I want you to focus on you today. How is your spirit? Are you mentally and physically feeling whole? Is your love tank full? Is your battery charged or just barely simmering?

I want to encourage you not to allow the holidays to zap you dry. You need to walk into 2020 with peace and joy, so anything that saps that from you must go. You must begin to be more self focused. It is not a crime. I promise. 🤗 Love you to life.

Good day friends, 
Grace and peace be unto you!

2 Corinthians 9:15 says Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift! 
Wow, I don't think many of us acknowledge and understand the incredible gift we have in Jesus. Much like the gifts, we get on Christmas the next week we don't know where they are. Too many Christians only talk to God when they need something. We don't acknowledging the protection, guidance, and love that has been given even when we didn't deserve it. 
During this holiday season please keep your heart and mind focused on the real meaning of the season, Jesus. He is the incredible gift that keeps on giving. 
Don't allow yourself to be sucked into the Christmas giving media. You need to live after the 25th is over. Only spend what you can afford. You give all year so let this be a time of love, relaxation, and just being with those that you love. Love you to life.

As we transform our lives we need to stay focused on what is ahead of us. The stuff in the past is important because it shaped who we are but we can not allow it to keep us paralyzed from making forward progress.

Thankful Thursday

Good day friend,
Grace and peace be unto you!

What are you thankful for today? I would say I am thankful for life. I know that sounds a cliche but have you seen how many people are dying? Whether on social media or in real life every day I am made aware of someone around me or connected to me in some way passing away. So, it's my story and I am sticking to... I am grateful for life.

I am going to challenge you over the next few weeks to start writing down 3 things you are thankful/grateful for each day and share them on my facebook page (Dr. J. Michelle Vann or Speaker/Author Michelle). I really want to see what is boiling to the surface for you. The more grateful you are the more you will find to be grateful for. Postive light will always attract to itself. Be the light that someone needs.

Wednesday Word

Good day friends,
Grace and peace be unto you!

Our word for today:

Acts 20:35  (NIV) In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ”

Paul was sharing with us that it is more blessed to give than to receive. Don't get me wrong I love a great gift, it speaks to my love language. However, it is SO cool to see a person's face lights up when you give them a gift that they did not expect. Friends over this holiday season be a blessing to someone with no expectations. Too often we go into dept trying to buy the newest gadgets when some people in our lives really just need our time and attention. Listen to what is really being said by your friends and family. Yes, their words might say electronics but what do they need.

I thank God that my kids figured out that Christmas is not about buying a bunch of junk. If we are honest we buy what we want when we want it. We don't have to tap into the lie that at certain times of the year we must go in debt to prove something to people that are in debt themselves. Be willing to bless someone or an organization with your time, talent, and/or treasure. It will come back to you.

Good day friends,

Not sure about the weather wherever you are but it is really nice in Kansas today. It is always amazing to me how our attitudes perk up when the sun is out. Just a very simple thing can make such a difference.

According to Healthline in an article written by Ryan Raman, Vitamin D is a unique vitamin that most people don’t get enough of. In fact, it’s estimated that more than 40% of American adults have a vitamin D deficiency. This vitamin is made from cholesterol in your skin when it’s exposed to the sun. That’s why getting enough sunlight is very important for maintaining optimal vitamin D levels. Yes, overexposure can cause problems but take advantage of sitting near the window when you get your next cup of coffee/tea. Take time to eat your lunch on the patio or deck. It has been predicted that this will be a wet winter. Take full advantage of every sunny and warm day you can get. Transformation starts in your mind and when your outlook is happy you enter the world differently.
Stay breezy.

This is the first day of the last month of 2019. Some of you will look back over the year and say this has been the worst year of your life. Others will say this has been the best year. Either way, I am going to ask you not to lump the whole thing in one bucket. Yes, you might have had some horrible things happen but it wasn't all bad. Yes, you had some phenomenal things occur but there were also some lessons you had to learn.

Overall I want you to really take some time to think about both the good and the bad that you have experienced this year. Both have taught you about yourself and those around you. Over the next few weeks take some time and journal about the lessons, you have learned this year. Write about the good and the bad that has occurred. Take some time to meditate on what you were supposed to learn, stop, add, and reduce in your life. I know that 2020 is going to be an awesome year but you have start the groundwork for it now. Love you to life.

Transformation Tuesday

Good morning friends,
Grace and peace be unto you!

It is Thanksgiving week and we have to keep in mind that everybody is not in the same headspace about the holidays. For many of us, holidays are great times of sharing and spending time with our loved ones. For others, the holiday only promotes how alone they already feel. Take time to seek out someone who might be alone during this time of Thanksgiving. Take them a plate or invite them over. Most of us are blessed beyond measure but don't always consider those that could use our assistance.

No, I am not telling you to put yourself or your family in harm's way or that you shouldn't enjoy your holiday. I am just asking what can you do to make some else's holiday a little bit better? Let someone know that there are still good people in the world. You don't have to go live on facebook or even take pictures just do something from your heart to make someone's day. Transformation starts one person at a time. You must be the change you want to see. Love you to life.

I pray that you are having a fabulous morning. In Kansas, the sun is out and it feels pretty warm. I won't complain it could be a lot worse. Knowing that this week is Thanksgiving I wanted to share a little thought with you to keep you from popping off with your family. Agreement #2 Don't take it personally.

Yes, before you say a cuss word out loud. I know this is difficult, but it is necessary to deal with some of your relatives. Don't take it personally. Hurt people will always lash out and hurt others with side remarks and questions they know will get under your skin. They are not doing it because of you they are doing it because something inside of them is broken. It is a projection of their own reality, which might not be yours. When their comments and behavior can no longer get to you, you are free. Freedom feels and looks so good on you. Don't allow others to dump their garbage at your doorstep. Help them put their foolishness right back in their mouths. Sis, you don't have space in your life for those that don't have your best interest at heart. You know how to cook (or purchase). If your family is too toxic, stop by eat a bite of dessert and keep it pushing. The people that love and support us the most are not always the people that we have blood ties to. Don't take it personally. It is not you, it is them. Love ya to life.

Good morning friends
Grace and peace be unto you!

Philippians 4:11-13  (NIV)

11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength

What is your mindset? Choosing to be content is a state of mind. Circumstances might not look like your or I want them to look but we are strengthened to push through with praise on our lips and a smile on our face.

What area in your life is God challenging you in? It is that area of challenge that you have to adopt a yet praise in. I can do all things because I am strengthened or empowered to conquer the mindset that keeps me bound, confused, and questioning. Know the path that is yours. When you understand it you won't be so easily sidetracked and talked out of God's best for your life. Don't worry about what anybody else is doing keep that tunnel vision and work the plan that has been given to you.

Good morning friends

Jennifer Hudson sings thos song called I'm Changing goes like this...
Look at me
I am changing
Trying every way I can
I am changing
I'll be better than I am.
I'm trying
To find a way
To understand.
But I need
I need
I need your help.
I am changing
Seeing everything so clear.
I am changing.
I'm gonna start right now right here.
I'm hoping to work it out.
And I know that I can
But I need you
I need a hand.
All of my life I've been a fool
Who said I could do it all alone.
How many friends have I already lost?
And how many dark nights have I known?
Walking down that long road. There was nothing u could buy.
All those years of darkness
Could make a person blind.
But now I can see that
I am changing
Trying every way I can
I am changing
I'll be better than I am
But I need a friend
To help me start
All over again.
That would be just fine
I know it's gonna work out this time
Cause this time I am,
This time I am
I am
Changing.
I get my life together now.
I am changing
Yes I know how
I'm gonna start again.
I'm gonna leave my past behind
I'll change my life.
I make it up
And nothing is gonna stop me now

Transformation is a process that requires us to use our resources and seek help. You can not do it alone or you would have already done it. Stop lying sis. We ALL need help from time to time. Don't ever be embarrassed about asking for help our clarity in a situation. You must be your own best advocate. Be proactive in your wellness. Love you sis. Take the opportunities to change and grow.

Sis, I hope that it is warm wherever you are. It is freezing in Kansas. SMH  According to our manmade calendar it is supposed to be Fall and we have an expectation that it will be cooler but not cold. That we will still be able to get out and have fun in the leaves but nature does not always conform to our calendar. Much like nature, our lives don't always go as planned. Losses and transitions happen in each of our lives. It is not the loss or transition that is our sticking point it is more how we handle it because change happens whether we want it to or not. How will you handle the Falls of your life that look more like Winters? The attitude and posture that you choose to take during these times will show you a lot about where you are mentally and spiritually. Be introspective today. Love you to life.

Today, we stop for a moment to give honor to those that sacrificed so much to make sure that citizens of the United States experience freedom. While some people would not go across the street to help someone, many that have serviced have been sent to foreign counties and removed from their families for extended periods of time for people they don't even know. While you may not agree with what they were asked, and if you listen to veterans they did not like everything they were asked to do, appreciate the sacrifice they made both mentally and physically. While not all Veterans like the term thank you for your service. Make sure that you appreciate the sacrifice they made. If you don't personally know a veteran find a way to help an organization that supports Veteran Affairs.

What is/are your November goal(s)?
1. Take the time to sit down and write down the goal(s) you would like to accomplish. Talking without actually writing them down will not help your goals manifest. They have to get out of your head and in front of your eyes.
2.  Next, make a list of who needs to help you accomplish this/these goal(s). Sis, I know you think you can do it on your own. Truth is we all NEED help some times. Yes, even me. There are people that would be honored to assist you in making progress on your dreams. No, this help might not be free but you must invest in yourself. If you won't spend money on your dream why should anybody else? 
3. Finally, create your action plan. What are the steps that you need to take to accomplish your goal? By having your goals broken down into small steps you have the opportunity to celebrate the small victories along the way. Check um off and keep pushing.

Thursday Thoughts

Good morning friends 
Grace and peace be unto you!

Yesterday I was listening to an interview that Oprah was doing with Elizabeth Gilbert as she was sharing about her life experiences. Some were very spiritual and others were the same things we all go through. Sometimes it's just good to know we are not alone. One thing that she shared from Anne Lowitt stood out to me. "Some people think that God is in the details, but I have come to believe that God is in the bathroom. I was so taken by that because some of the most powerful private times I have ever had were in the bathroom.

There is something about the acoustics when you sing. The water to renew me. The solitude of shutting and latching the door. Jesus meets me in the bathroom. I just felt resolute in this idea. Don't be so quick to come out of the bathroom. Let him speak to you. 

Funny enough the fullness of the Holy Spirit was manifest within me in the bathroom at church on a choir rehearsal night. It was like a whirlwind. I kept spinning and spinning and spun the more sweet his presence was and the more he spoke through me. I can still experience it in my mind. Use your weapons of warfare no matter where you are called. Yours may be a bedroom and mine may be a bathtub they work the same. Seek God wherever you are.

This was in my spirit when I woke up and hopefully it brings you peace like it did me.

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say. It is well, it is well, with my soul
It is well. With my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul

No matter how chaotic the storm is around you it can be well with your soul. People watching you go through might not understand. Heck, you might not understand but the peace of God can sweep over you in ways that don't make sense but it's there. 

Today, I challenge you to ask for peace throughout the day. Tell yourself it is well with my soul until it gets from your lips to your soul. It is well. It might not feel, or look well, but it is well! Remember where two or three are gathered and agree upon a thing it will be established. So find someone and agree with them (if you have haters around you, I will agree with you) it is WELL!

What are you focusing your attention on? Sisters, I want you to really think about these words as you read them. Is it true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report? If it is not all of these then leave it alone. Too many people out here sharing pieces of their mind that they need to hold on to. I have to preach to my self first. Everything that comes to my head doesn't need to come out of my mouth and I don't need to let it rest in my head too long because it will become a thought. Thoughts become words, and words become actions. We need to think about the things that bring virtue into our lives. Gossip does not. I challenge you and I to think about what we are thinking about and determine if we need to keep the thought because it is praiseworthy or if we need to reject it because it is foolishness.

When your mouth is filled with praise there is no room for complaint. If I am offering up my gift up worship I don't have time or space for the negative. Light and dark can not inhabit the same space. So, if my praise brings in the light of the holy spirit I don't have space for darkness. 

Only this Motivation Monday I want you to praise God until the darkness is pushed back. Until depression has no more space. Until fear has loose its grip. Praise him. Sis this the one weapon at your disposal that you don't use. Try it and let me know.

As the winter season starts to move in and the days get shorter consider your mental health. It took me a long time to figure out that I try to get home for its dark but in the winter that is difficult and it created anxiety. That small revelation helped me to understand what was triggering the anxiety so I can now address it. 

I say all of that to say this. There is something about losing the light of summer that can precipitate depressed in certain people so I want you to stay vigilant and focused on taking care of you. Exercise, drink plenty of water and eat good whole foods. Stay away from sugary items that produce spikes in your blood sugar. Find hearty stews and soups and pack them vegetables and greens. The better fuel you put in your car the better it runs. Your body is the same way. Feed it good foods that are good for it and it will run better. Focus on your health. You can help anybody else if you're broken down. Sis love yourself!

Good morning Friend,

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.

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.

Until tomorrow #liveBlessed

Wednesday Word

Good morning friends,
Grace and peace be unto you!

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.

Informational Tuesday

Good morning Friend,
Grace and peace be unto you!

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.

Wednesday Word

Good morning friends,
Grace and peace be unto you!

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.

Monday Motivation

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.

Transformation Tuesday

Good morning friends,
Grace and peace be unto you!

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.

Until tomorrow

Transformation Tuesday

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

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.

Good morning,

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.

Friday Focus

Good morning,

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.
Friends we have got to do better in making sure the next generation is better prepared them we were.

Wow, it has been a crazy week. Sorry I missed a few days of posting. Sometimes we can get overwhelmed by to chaos of life. Friends take the time to take care of you. I know you are chuckling right now asking, are you taking care of yourself? LOL

I am in the process of moving some things around to eliminate that burning at both ends and the middle feeling. Massage/reflexology appointment being made. What are you doing to help yourself relaxed? What are you reading that renews your mind? What activities are you doing that will keep your body moving? It has been proven that the endorphins released during exercise bring renewal.

Do what renews your mind, body, and spirit.

Good morning,
Grace and peace be unto you!

There are so many people hurting in today's society. Problems seem to have no easy resolution. I believe there are so many people with the same lament as below. 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. Your situation will not last forever, this season will pass. I pray for nothing but God's favor to shine upon you and give you and of those that are going through hard times clear direction. Love you know I love you to life.
