If you have never heard of a vision board or if you have never created a vision board, click this link to read a blog post I wrote to my single sisters about how to create a vision board.

Please scroll down to the picture showing the vision board and start reading from there, because anything before that is talking to single ladies.

What is a vision board? A vision board is simply a tool used to see your goals, dreams and visions that you’ve written down on paper, translated into visual form by using real images or pictures.

For example; you wrote in your journal that you one day want to visit the Fiji Islands. You saw a picture in the magazine of the Fiji Islands, you can cut that picture out of the magazine and paste it to your vision board. Now, you can look at that dream and visualize yourself on the Fiji Island.The vision board itself has no power to make anything happen. It can not answer any prayers, and your faith should not be in the vision board itself. It is just a tool used to see your visions and dreams before your eyes by using real pictures. Got it?

Your faith should always be engaged in trusting the Heavenly Father and his word that these things are coming to pass.

It is not unscriptural that you are writing down the visions and dreams that you believe God is showing you for your life.

In fact, the scriptures teaches us to write the vision down and make it plain or clear!

Habakkuk 2:2-3 KJV

And the Lord answered me, and said write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it!

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.God said that he will give us the desires of our hearts if we delight ourselves in him. If you really want to know what it means to truly delight yourself in the Lord click here.

Psalm 37: 4

Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

God also said, when the people do not have a vision for their life, they perish. You need to dream and you need to have goals. It keeps your life in forward movement and unstuck.

I don’t know if you know it or not, but you were created to do good things and you were also created for good works. I will share with you what the scriptures says about this.

Proverbs 29:18 KJV

Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepth the law, happy is he.

Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them,God wants you to believe him for the impossible. He said, if you can believe Him for the impossible, you can have it!

Matthew 19:26 NIV

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.

Now that we’ve established that it’s not unbiblical to create a vision board and that our faith must be engaged in the Heavenly Father at all times, lets find out how to get the best use out of our vision board.

13 Principles I Use To Manifest My Goals And Dreams On My Vision Board!

1. After you have created your vision board, place it in an area where you can look at it at least twice a day.

I love looking at my vision board when I wake up in the morning and right before I go to bed. I have my vision board displayed in open view in my bedroom so when ever I walk pass it, I can see it.

2. Believe: Really believe this can one day happen for you. Believe that you are worthy to receive anything good in your life.

happy-black-woman-with-banner_1149-19441732944934.jpg

Jeremiah 29:11 KJV

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

3. Take at least 15 minutes daily to concentrate on your vision board. Take inventory of what you are asking to come into your life, by doing so, you are ingraining the images into your subconscious mind because what you pay attention to in your life is what you are attracting to you.

For example, you want to cut out eating sweets from your diet, but you are watching TV shows about baking desserts and yummy treats. On your job, people are constantly bringing doughnuts, cakes and snacks, and you are around this all day.

What do you think is going to happen eventually? You are going to give in to the temptation because those images are ingrained in your mind from you paying attention to them all day long.

4. Visualize yourself with your goals and dreams. Imagine what it would feel like to obtain your goals and dreams. Pretend that you are actually living your new life when you look at your vision board.

Do not just look at your board but actually feel all those wonderful feelings as you are pretending as if you’ve already obtained the goals and dreams on your vision board. What you are doing at this moment is engaging your faith.

stress-free-640x426-1783100973.jpg

Remember when you were a kid and you engaged in pretend play? You were so happy and so engaged in the process of play, that you got so wrapped up in it and forgot it was just play.

You would even get into an arguement with your friends, sisters and brothers about, “it’s my red car” and neither one of you owned a car but in that moment it became real for you.

Take that same childhood naivety into your pretend play while visualizing yourself with your new life.

Romans 15:13 KJV

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

5. Say the scriptures and confessions on your vision board out loud, so it sinks down into your subconscious mind and heart.6. Choose to share your vision board with people you really trust and with your purpose partners (someone who is just as invested in seeing your visions, goals and dreams come to pass)

If you do not have anyone in your life that you can share your vision board with, then keep it between you and the Heavenly Father.

7. The benefit of sharing your vision board with someone you trust and who believes in you, is to have a partner to play your childhood game with (Pretend Play).

The both of you get together and start pretending that you are driving in your Lexus 570 and you are traveling to Maui tomorrow and you gotta hurry up so that you won’t miss your flight. It’s lots of fun to do. I play this game with my husband a lot!

8. Stay away from doubting Thomas and negative Nancy. These are people who causes you to doubt, abort or cancel your dreams and goals altogether.

The moment you realize that a person is negative in an area where you are trusting God to manifest for you, shut it down and stop talking to that person about that subject! Stop sharing with them immediately.9. Never come into agreement with anyone who is speaking opposite of what you believe God to manifest in your life. You should speak back to anyone who is being negative about your dream.

Single ladies, if you want to be married, when you hear someone say there are a shortage of men, you say, in a kind manner (you do not have to be rude), girl men are plentiful and besides, I only need the one that God hand picked just for me.

10. Always pray to the Heavenly Father and ask for guidance as you navigate to your new life.

Ask Him to give you His best in every situation and detach from the outcome.
Don’t try and figure out how it is going to happen. Your job is to believe and trust God.11. Read books and look at testimonies online of others who have obtain their dreams in the areas you want to obtain yours. This will keep your faith engaged in your goals and dreams.

12. When the spirit of truth prompt your heart to do something towards your dreams and goals, take fast actions.

13. Lastly, you never talk against the things you believe to happen for you on your vision board by doubting because it will take longer to come or not come to pass at all.

James 1:6-7

But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord

These are my 13 principles I use to manifest my goals and dreams on my vision board. Now go and create you a masterpiece Vision Board.

God’s Way verses the World’s Way On Money and Debt

Holy Bible and money

Today I want share with you a biblical perspective on how we (believers of the Bible) should handle our finances. I also want to do a comparison of how we’ve always been taught by the world’s system to handle our finances, verse God’s way of handling our finances. I will also expose the truth about debt from a Biblical perspective.

I must warn you that if you have been living with credit cards, and getting loans for everything you own and paying monthly payments on your possessions, this is going to shake your confidence because what I am about to expose you to right now, probably goes against everything you’ve been taught and everything you know about money and debt. It takes having real trust in the Heavenly Father to handle your money the Biblical way, verse the world’s way.

You will find out that when the rug is pulled out from under you, and what I mean by that is, when all of your options are taken away from you to use other people’s money to fund your material possessions and your dreams, that your security has been in the world’s system and not in God’s system. True financial security comes when you owe no man but to love him, false security comes when you are a slave to the lender and have borrowed the lender’s money to fund your dreams or your possessions.

pexels-photo-260024.jpeg

I want you to know this blog post is all about me as well, I don’t get a pass. I was hesitant to release this blog post because I didn’t want to sound like I had it all together. My husband and I are still working towards handling our finances the way the Bible instructs us to. It’s hard and tempting, going back and forth and dancing with what the world offers you, verses taking a stand to handle your money God’s way. I am not judging you and I do not have it all together, but my husband and I are working on a better financial future. I have been released to release this blog post, in the hopes of getting believers of the Bible to see the truth verses a lie on how we been taught to handle our finances.

Just because the world deems it normal to take out loans of every kind, apply for credit cards, make vows, pledges, give money and possessions without truly looking at all the other bills you owe or counting up the cost, do not make it the Biblical thing to do.

We live in a country where debt is supreme, but what I am learning from a biblical perspective is that Cash is King. If you do not have the money in your possession to fund it, then you save up for it and pay cash or you live without it, or God will bless you with it through someone else, instead of becoming a slave to the lender and borrowing it. Now I know we are taught about good debt and bad debt, like borrowing money to fund your degree, a home and business but from a Biblical perspective all debt is bad.

I know most people have no other option but to borrow funds for their schooling, home and business, it will help put them in a better financial situation. But even in these cases, you are still a slave to lender until you set yourself free from the snare of the fowler, you are not exempt, neither are you the exception to the rule when it comes to handling your finances the biblical way.

Any debt from a biblical perspective is being a slave to the lender. This article is only talking about what the bible has to say about money.

Now I love Dave Ramsey philosophy about money because it comes from a biblical view and after listening to his talk on money, it is a goal of mine to adopt a biblical perspective on how I handle my finances.

Now let us dispel, expose and learn some truths about money from a biblical perspective verses the world’s perspective. Click this link to learn 250 Bible verses about money.

student-loan-debt-1160848_1280.png

1. Debt : a state of being under obligation to pay or repay someone or something in return for something received : a state of owing deeply in debt to creditors.

The world offers us so many ways to get ourselves into debt, like credit cards, car loan, mortgage loan, business loan, payday loan, furniture loan, appliances loan, co-signing for some one else’s debt, making pledges, student loan, banks are offering a program where you can borrow against your own money therefore making you in debt to yourself while they are making interest off of your money, and if you forfeit the rules that they established for you to borrow against your own money, your money becomes the bank money and you loose your money to the bank. Leasing cell phone, borrowing money from friends, families and foes. It is so easy to get into debt.

Now let’s read what God thinks about all of this, put your seat belt on, you are about to see things in the word of God that you probably have never seen before.

This is God’s will for his people:

Deuteronomy 15:6
For the Lord your God will bless you as He has promised you, and you will lend to many nations, but you will not borrow; and you will rule over many nations, but they will not rule over you.

Deuteronomy 28:12
The Lord will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.

God said, when we are trusting in him and live our lives after his ways, He would bless us and we will lend to many nations, BUT YOU WILL NOT BORROW, we will rule over nations, but they will not rule over you. God said he will open up his good store house, the heavens, to give us rain to our land in its season, and to bless the works our hands, and you SHALL LEND TO MANY NATIONS BUT YOU SHALL NOT BORROW! 

Now tell me, how are we going to be lenders, if we are borrowing other people’s money?

We have disqualified ourselves from this scripture when we borrow money because God’s tells his people that they will lend and not borrow, this is our covenant right with God. Every time we get ourselves into debt we forfeit this covenant.

In fact Proverbs 22:7 tells us,

Proverbs 22:7
The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower becomes the lender’s slave.

bank-2907728_1920

Anytime you take on a loan, borrow money from someone or make a vow to someone to give them something, whether you’ve signed your name on the dotted line by saying you are going to pay this money back or you’ve entered into an oath or agreement or a pledge with your mouth, you have now become that person or institute slave!

They now rule over you, from this scripture they are the ones that are rich, now you are the one who is poor because you did not have the cash in your hand or in your bank account to pay for the items you wanted at the time the full amount of payment was needed.

The Bible has a lot to say about a person who borrows money from others and do not pay it back, the Bible cause that person wicked!

Psalm 37:21
The wicked borrows and does not pay back, but the righteous is gracious and gives.

But in that same verse, it talks about the righteous is gracious and gives. Righteous people are principle people, they are courteous and kind. They desire to help others. They think about how their actions effect others and their family. Righteous people do things the way the Bible instructs them to. They count up the cost before entering into covenants. They are people of integrity. They rather not live above their means. They give because they have enough to give without robbing peter to pay Paul. (This is my take on it.)

Exodus 22:14
If a man borrows anything from his neighbor, and it is injured or dies while its owner is not with it, he shall make full restitution.

We live in a time where people words have lost it’s power, now you have to get things in writing. Years ago you can do a handshake and believe what the other person tells you when you loan them money, clothing and your car etc. As believers, the Bible tells us if we borrow anything from anyone, and it gets damaged, lost or stolen, we are to make full restitution of what we borrowed. If we do not make good on the word or our vow, we are considered wicked!

Lets look at what the scripture say in the Bible about making an oath, pledge or a vow.

Proverbs 17:18 ESV One who lacks sense gives a pledge and puts up security in the presence of his neighbor

Proverbs 17:18 ISV A man who lacks sense cosigns a loan, becoming a guarantor for his neighbor.

When we co-sign for other people to enter into debt, the Bible says we lack sense! That person is not credit worthy or they could have gotten the loan themselves. If they do not pay their debt, that debt now becomes yours because you’ve made a vow to the lenders stating, “I will pay off their car, house or item if they don’t honor their vow with you.”

What is a Pledge?

1. a formal or solemn promise or agreement, esp to do or refrain from doing something.

2. collateral for the payment of a debt or the performance of an obligation the condition of being collateral (esp in the phrase in pledge).

3. a sign, token, or indication: the gift is a pledge of their sincerity.

pinky-swear-329329_1920

This is the only thing from scripture that a follower of Christ is suppose to owe a person.

Romans 13:8
Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.

Let us read the scriptures about borrowing money

Psalm 37:21
The wicked borrows and does not pay back, but the righteous is gracious and gives.

2 Kings 4:7
Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debt, and you and your sons can live on the rest.”

The world sends us messages, mail and even encourages us to get into debt. They make it so easy for us we to qualify for a loan to purchase the things that we want. They don’t care about your previous history of filing for chapter 13 and your poor credit history. They have created programs designed just for people with a bad money history.

Colossians 2:8 ESV See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.

God is telling us follow his ways and not the ways of the world!

Matthew 5:33 ESV “Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform to the Lord what you have sworn.’ But I say to you, Do not take an oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, or by the earth, for it is his footstool, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. And do not take an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black. Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.

James 5:12 ESV But above all, my brothers, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath, but let your “yes” be yes and your “no” be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation.

Lets sum it all up. From these scriptures the Bible says do not make an oath, vow or pledge. When you do, it is not of God or comes from God. It is not wise. Let your yes be yes and your no be no. Anything other than your yes or no, comes from the evil one. If you have the money in your hand or bank account give it or buy it. If you don’t, do not entrap or enslave yourself by making vows, oaths or pledges. If you owe anyone or made a pledge pay your vow, or you would be considered wicked!

THE POWER OF LETTING GO! A key element in manifesting anything in your life.

stock-photo-transportation-people-colours-lagos-nigeria- (2)

I am reminded of a time when I so badly wanted to visit the beautiful continent of Africa.

Africa is where my husband is from. Africa is where my ancestors are from. It seemed like everything was coming up to stop me from making this dream a reality.

Here are a list of things that came up:

My husband and I had other obligations and things that needed our financial attention. If he traveled, then I needed to stay home to take care of our business that he ran. I was either pregnant and couldn’t travel or I had just given birth to a baby. We also had another business that I ran that required me to be hands on, if I didn’t work it, the monies stop flowing. It seemed like circumstances was not lining up for me.

I even accused my hubby for not wanting to take me to the place he grew up.

But the truth is, my husband wanted everything to be comfortable for me when we arrived in his hometown. He wanted my first time visiting the place he grew up to be an amazing experience.

I assured him that I can handle anything. I am a girl who has been through something. I didn’t grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth. It didn’t matter where I stayed, I wanted to see where my ancestors were from. I could feel Africa in my bones.

mother-2262750_1920

It seemed like this dream of going to Africa was taking forever. I would have words back and forth with my husband about it, I made it a real issue. My husband assured me that we will go Africa and all I needed to do was trust and be patient. But my patience was running out.

So one day, I decided to let go of the anxiousness of going to Africa. I truly let it go in my heart. I decided to be content with it, and not let it ever be an issue between my Husband and I.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6)

Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” – Hebrews 13:5


  •  THE MOMENT I LET IT GO, I KNEW IN MY SPIRIT THAT GOD WOULD LINE UP EVERY CIRCUMSTANCES FOR ME TO GO TO AFRICA!
  • Yes It happened, and it happened so fast! My time had come! The opportunity to visit Africa finally presented itself to me.
  1. I didn’t own my business anymore, we didn’t have any major financial obligation. I wasn’t pregnant. I wasn’t breastfeeding my son anymore. My babies were at the age that they could have a babysitter without me being in town. All of my circumstances were lining up for me.
  • But now all of a sudden, I had some resistance towards going to Africa. I remember saying to God, “you are going to make me go aren’t you?” At that time, I was not willing to part from my babies for that long period of time. I even told my husband, “you go without me, I don’t want to go.” I truly struggled! The only people I could trust to watch after my kids could not watch my children while I was in Africa.
  • Now here I was telling God and my husband that the timing wasn’t right. I asked God, “who is going to watch my babies while I’m in Africa and who could I trust? The only people I could trust with my kids for that long period of time were my parents and my oldest daughter. My daughter had to work and my parents were traveling on the same dates I would be traveling to Africa.

faith-612460_1920But God! He is faithful.

One day, while talking to a friend and telling her that I have an opportunity to go to Africa but needed someone who I could trust to watch my children before I could even entertain the offer, she told me that she also had an opportunity to take a trip out of the country and needed a babysitter to watch her child. She asked me if we could exchange babysitting services.

When I tell you that everything lined up for me, I mean everything. Oh my God! God supernatural assigned his angelic host to escort me to Africa. On top of that, God blessed me with a mini vacation! I had time alone, away from the kids while I traveled to retrieve my passport and my Nigerian visa.

Listen to all I had to go through to get to Africa. God provided for me supernaturally every step of the way! He assigned people who showed me favor to get me to Africa. I could feel the prayers of my husband and the intercessory prayer warriors in Africa, praying for my journey to Africa!

I needed to update my passport, and at the time I would be traveling to Africa, my passport would not be ready if I sent it through the mail. So I had to travel to Chicago because they give out passports on the spot. Yes! Mission accomplished, I received my passport!

But I needed a Nigerian visa to visit Nigeria, and now I had to travel to Atlanta to get a Nigerian visa. So I traveled to Atlanta, but when I arrived they told me that they didn’t not have anymore visas and I needed to go to New York if I wanted a Nigerian visa. They also told me that it was a holiday for them, and they were taking off and all of the Nigerian Embassy would be closed and I only had that day and the next day to make that happened, I didn’t know what to do! I said what! You guys are suppose to keep Visas in stocked, that is why you guys are an Embassy.

I didn’t want to travel to New York, and I felt like I did all this traveling for nothing! The Embassy in Atlanta told me all the information they could tell me and I was left to figure the rest out on my own. I heard a lady say I could over night the forms and fees if I can get some one in their processing center who would receive it and process my forms. That was my only hope! I told myself if only I could talk to someone at the New York Embassy. I attempted to call and could not get anyone but a recorder.

african-2197414_1920.jpg

I was frustrated and was about to give up but I heard in my spirit, “call again,” and I pushed a different button. I got a lady who works in the processing center. She gave me so much favor. She told me what to do and gave me the number to her direct line. My husband and I worked hard to get everything we needed to process this Visa. We paid all of the fees and filled out all of the forms and sent it overnight. I did all of this while I was still in Atlanta and my husband was at home in St. Louis. The next day, I had my Nigerian visa in my hand! I traveled by bus, airplane, car and train to retrieve my passport and visa. On my way home from Atlanta, God had me to minister to someone who had just gotten out of prison and blessed him with a book that I hoped changed his life.

I love my husband even the more after visiting his beautiful family. I was forever changed after visiting Africa. God used my niece in-law and sister in-law Adeline and Pastor Enohor to bring me to Africa. My niece in-law Adeline, asked Pastor Enohor and I to speak at her workshop Girl Arize.  We formed a bond that day, and Pastor Enohor asked my husband and me to speak at a big conference she holds in Africa every year based on a book she wrote called End of Discussion.

I was on a divine assignment from God, I was able to minister to the people in Africa. God had me to deliver a special word to the people in Africa. I am so every grateful to God, my husband, my babysitter, my niece and sister in-law and all of the people God used to make my dream a reality.

I had the most amazing time while I was in Africa. I received the royal treatment while I was there. My people loved on me! I felt like I was home! Every thing I dreamed Africa would be superseded my expectation. I was in awww the whole time I was there. My bones oozed with excitement and my face never lost it smiled.

Africa was beautiful. Looking at the people as they hustle and bustle was beautiful. Shack houses, huts and big beautiful homes and building were beautiful. Watching thousand upon thousands of people working for themselves to feed their families both kids and adults was beautiful. Watching the traffic and crowded  buses, motorcycles and scooters rides was beautiful.

Life for some people in Africa maybe hard but Africa is rich in resources. Everything may not be idea living for some Africans and the struggle definitely real. I am not down playing that, but I chose to focus on the beauty of Africa instead of the negative stigmas.

Trust God, and then let go if you are feeling stressed out, overwhelmed or anxious that it is taking to long for your dreams or prayers to manifest.

Letting go is not giving up the dream. Letting go is allowing, allowing God to be God and you to be content in your current circumstances. God will work out all of the details for you. He is working everything out for your good.

Every step of the way was a divine connection for me. God lined up things at the right time because I chose to let it go.

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose. – Romans 8:28

And our great big God would do the same thing for you, if you just trust him!

10 Ways You Can Create A Simple and Luxurious Life!

Today I feel led to share with you a chapter out of a book that I’ve written called, “25 Attitude You Must Have for a Breakthrough” and since I am on a 30 days journey to getting my life in order, I thought it would be perfect to share my process with you and this chapter breaks it down perfectly.

badesalz-1620261_1920Simple and luxurious living is surrounding yourself with only those things that you love and are beautiful to your eyesight. It is also about getting rid of anything that is taking up space in your life with no real purpose. Simple and luxurious living also entails that you only put the things in your environment that you absolutely need and actually use. This eliminates waste in your life and help you to live free of unnecessary clutter.

We hold on to things far too long, even if it is not serving any real purpose in our lives. I want to inspire you to detox your mind, your environment, your relationships, your finances, and your body so you can feel the freedom that comes with releasing dead weight and having an organized stress-free life.

In my own life, I am constantly purging things that no longer benefit me, my family and our environment.

Things like wrong mindset, schedules that do not work for my family, clothes, accessories, wrong eating habits, relationships that are no longer beneficial to my values. Things that are broken that I will never have fixed, things that I am no longer using, places I use to frequent, but in my spirit, feels like the season is up for that. It’s all about simplifying to make your life easier, beautiful, and free!clutter-560701_1920.jpgSometimes having a cluttered environment stunts our growth, cloud our mind and vision. I am learning this. I am also a mother of five, wife, author, blogger and coach. I realize I need to be organized and everything should have a place. I also came to the conclusion that if we are having things in our environment that we don’t love or use, it is robbing us of more space, and to me, holding on to things that no longer serve you purpose, is an indicator you might be holding on to mental and emotional clutter.

Having a cluttered environment and living with too much stuff can cause you to lose quality time with your family and working on things that will enhance your purpose/dream. Because you are too consumed with the upkeep of it all.

Another thing, your best clarity comes in a neat organized environment. I have experienced this in my own life, when I let go of old baggage and decluttered watch out something significant is going to show up in my life.

You can’t go into the next season with things, people, and wrongs mindsets. That will hold you back! That is extra baggage; it will sink your ship. In this next season, you have to sail through!pexels-photo-90319Now, simplifying doesn’t mean things do not have to be beautiful. I encourage beautiful and luxurious. As long as it has a place and value in your life, allow it to be part of your life. We are talking about your own style, do it your way! Put things in your environments that is beautiful and luxurious to you.

Luxurious, doesn’t have to mean the same thing to everyone. I might love vintage and industrial, another person might love modern and retro. Put your own twist on your own style; just make sure you love it! When you have a clean, neat, organized, and positive environment, seeing it alone put you in a peaceful, prosperous, happy, stress-free state of mind.

That is the kind of mind that helps bring clarity in your situations and make your dreams become a reality.

10 Ways To Create A Simple and Luxurious Life:

1. All broken items must be removed immediately or fixed right away.

2. You must absolutely love the items in your environment. Not like, but LOVE!

3. If you no longer have use for an item, or if you have too many of the same items, bless someone else with the item who could use it, or donate it.office-1078869_1920.jpg4. Put like items, with like items, and assign everything a home. For example, put all scissors together in a container, get a container box for all of your pencils, mount a key holder on the wall and place all of your keys on the key holder.

5. Remove all items that are torn, ripped, faded, waggly, too small, and missing buttons out of your environment. If you really love the item, get it repaired immediately.

6. This is just a suggestion, not a rule. When you put items that match, like all matching dishes, towels and silverware, it makes your space look refined and stream-lined and gives a luxurious feel. I am still working on this one myself.

7. If there are any relationships that you are in that are influencing you in a wrong way, that are draining you, negative, one sided; where you are the giver and they are the takers, non-committal, intimidating, manipulative, non-supportive, abusive, toxic, controlling, and codependent. You need to set boundaries in that relationship, redefine your relationships, or cut the soul tides in that relationship all together.pexels-photo-262145.jpegSome people are afraid to be alone, so they tolerate behavior from people that do not mean them any good. When you trust God, and let go of toxic relationships, he bring new and wonderful people into your life that will add to your life and not take away. Your heart is your lifeline, the Bible says out of it flows the issue of life. What issues have you been letting fill your heart. You don’t want to be so loved starved that you just leave heart dangling for anyone to have it. Take your heart back from those who don’t deserve it! And give it to the one who can take care of it best, God. Start loving yourself enough to disconnect from people, things, and decisions that is stopping you from having God’s best for your life.

8. I like to weigh anything against the word of God. God’s word is always true and any wrong mindset that you have concerning an issue, must be destroyed in you. You must let go of that stinking thinking that wants to keep you bound. For example, having unforgiveness in your heart towards another person. God’s word says we should forgive others, if we want God to forgive us. Then we have to forgive the person we are holding unforgiveness against.

You have to detox your mindset from negative and wrong thinking. Sometimes, we could have grown up with truths that are not the truth. Once you find out the truth, you have to let the old truth go, and get rid of it. Because it can hinder you from receiving major breakthroughs in your life.

I have an exercise for you to do. I want you to think about some truths you grew up with and some negative things you believe about yourself, about life and other people. I want you to write them down on paper. I would love for you to weigh it against the word of God (which is the Bible). You can go on the internet and type in the subject in question. Type in the search engine; “what does the Bible teaches about, for example; forgiveness.” Write out your new truth and decide to let it be the ruling truth in your life.wallet-908569_1920.jpg9. We must base our self-esteem on the word of God and not in our material possessions. If you have debt that you owe, the Bible says that we are slaves to our lenders, luxurious simplicity requires you to pay those that you owe, so you can live a luxurious lifestyle. And I am only speaking to the ladies with who are living with real debt. We have no business buying anything that is not a need, until we get out of debt. I suggest you put a stop to unnecessary spending until you have paid off those who have control over you. I recommend you take it a step further, save for a rainy day, and think about your future. Learn about investing some of your money.

Put yourself in the budget, pay yourself some me money. So you will not feel like you are only working to pay bills. Part of you paring down your items is so that you govern and take care of what is in your environment, so you can live with quality and not quantity and having to keep buying the same things over and over again. You can even make extra cash off your stuff, if it is worth something. Set up an Ebay account and start selling your treasures on Ebay. They have a global customer base, and you will be surprise who wants to buy your stuff.

Another place to sell your items to make extra cash is Craigslist. Craigslist is design to sell in your local community and state that you live in. People are buying and selling on craigslist all day long, and it is free to sell and buy things. I would suggest you read the safety policies before meeting with someone on Craigslist.

Never go anywhere alone to exchange items for cash. Always take someone with you.

We spend too much money into our self-worth and not into things that really matters, like our future. I know that you do not want to still be working for someone else at the age of 65. You do not have to retire, but if you are going to be working, let it be for yourself and because you love helping others with a service you provide. Now, when you have taken care of your foundation and built your financial house, splurge!pexels-photo-110215.jpeg10. Part of living a luxurious simplicity life is taking care of your temple, your body, so you can live to enjoy all of the blessing that will unfold in your life when you on purpose decide you want to change!

Toxic, harmful things in your body and your environment like strong harsh chemicals foul foolish talk, cursing, gossip, negative self-talk, drugs, alcohol, nicotine, too much sugar, salt, soda and caffeine. I want to inspire you to change the way you look at your life. You only have one life; you must love yourself enough to take care of you. You are the only one who can decide what is good for you.

I suggest you start taking walks, about 15 minutes to one hour walks a day. It has major health benefits like relieving stress, building muscle tone, stretching your muscle and joints and keep them from getting stiff. Walking also helps you to keep your weight down and releases endorphins in your body to give you a feel good feeling. A big benefit in walking is that it keeps depression at bay, if you are a person that struggle with depression.

Drink lots of water and eat nutritious food. Monitor what you allow to enter into your environment and your mind, like negative words and gossiping. Declare your body and environment a gossip free zone. Get in the habit of looking at yourself in the mirror and speaking right and excellent words to yourself and over yourself. Bless others presence by speaking nothing but encouraging and positive words to them.
mineral-water-1532300_1920-2
Practicing fasting because it has great health benefits and can heal the body and deliver you from strange and strong addictions. Jesus made it a habit to fast while living on earth. Fasting also bring clarity and answers when you need help with a situation in your life. Holding on to unnecessary clutter in the mind as well as in your environment just take up wasted space and time.
You could be spending time on things that really matters like building your dream or formulating a plan for your purpose. Decluttering help, you get organized and letting go of mental clutter helps you to focus!
 The Bible talks about the correct way to fast. It is found in Isaiah 58.

I personally was delivered from a spirit of miscarriage while on a 40 day fast. On that fast, I gave up eating meats and changed the way I was speaking over myself. I began to confess healing scriptures over my body. You can read about my whole testimony in a book I wrote Dare to Dream Big!. You can purchase the book on amazon.com or on my website at http://www.noboundariesbtc.com.

I know it’s a lot but it is so worth the time and effort to live your life on purpose and enjoy a life full of breakthrough peace, luxury, and abundance.

Getting Back to the Heart of Things!

bench-1245994_1920

This blog post is about my journey back to being grateful and taking control of my life. I was feeling like I needed to bring more balance and order in my life.

I am a Christian, wife, mother and I took on the task of being responsible for my kids education. Yes, I also homeschool my kids.

I am a woman who have dreams and a purpose and I started to pursue them as well. I am a self published Christian author. I’ve written 3 books,“Dare To Dream Big”, “25 Attitude “You Must Have for a Breakthrough” and “Extraordinary Single Lady”.

I am a certified Christian life coach, speaker and blogger. I have a lot on my plate, but I love it. I love that I have found out what God created me to do and that is to partner with him to see his daughters made whole in every area of their lives. But I have an evening greater calling, and that is to be a wife to Overere and a mom to Erica, Faith, Victoria, Blessing and Wisdom. I am also called to be Destine’s GeeGee. I am not ready to be called a grandmother yet, so I told my granddaughter to call me GeeGee.

In life, there will be a lot of things pulling for your time and attention but you have to know what is the most important in your life. For me, God is most important, then myself and then my family in that order and then everything else comes after that.

herbal-tea-647535_1920

Myself after God because I am no good to anyone if I do not take care of myself first. I need to always be giving back to me, so I can give back to others that have been entrusted to me.

Some of my favorite me times and things I enjoy giving back to myself are, Lipton Green tea with honey or guava, reading and learning, spa treatment in the bath tub, spending fun quality time with my husband like going out to dinner and catching a great movie afterwards, traveling, praying and meditating, journaling, 30 minutes walks which I need to get back to, getting my hair done when its time, polishing my nails and toes, buying something for myself, having sweet fellowship and feeding my spirit man at Church and having social time with the ladies.

As women we want to be a part of everything and attend everyones gathering. But you have to decide what is truly important for you.

You must develop a relationship with the Holy Spirit so He can prompt you when you are taking on too many things in your life or when you are suppose to do something different than what you or other people think you are suppose to be doing.

diary-1149992_1280.jpg

Everyone has an agenda, but it is God’s agenda that should reign supreme in your life. But let me reveal this revelation. God has given us the ability to make wise decisions for ourselves. God requires us to follow after Jesus example on how we should conduct our lives. Jesus is the standard for us to pattern our life after, it is the blue print on how we are suppose to conduct ourselves with our family, friends, on our jobs and in the world. That is  one of the requirements to live a Christ centered life.

He has given you the free will to choose how you want your life to be. He will present things before you, but ultimately you must decide on what job to take, who to marry, where you want to live, which gifting and talents you want to develop, what type of car you want to drive, what kinds of attributes you want to display in the world, what house you want to live in and how you want to spend your days on earth.

The Bible is the road map for the best possible outcome to based your decisions on. The Bible is the true word of God, it is not to be taken lightly. It is prophecy in a book. It is God’s word to man, but God gave you free will, He left it up to you to do the choosing. The Holy Spirit is God’s helper, He will illuminate to you which way you should go if you develop a intimate trusting relationship with him. The Holy Spirit will speak to your heart and prompt you when it is something you should do or not be doing at this time if your life. Most Christians have not develop that relationship with the Holy Spirit. If you are born again, I would recommend you read this book by Benny Hinn called “Good Morning Holy Spirit” if you want to be born again pray this prayer.

cleaning-268126_1920

Ladies, I know we want to have our cake and eat it too, but there is a price that comes with that. It takes careful thought and planning and great organization skills of which I am learning to develop everyday. I know everything is not going to be perfect, but perfect to me is having a peace of mind and living true within my heart, and being the change that I want to see and that starts with me.

All I was hearing in my spirit was get your house in order and that could mean different things for different people because we are all called to something different in life. Your struggle my be totally different from my struggles.

I was presented with an offer, that I might add, I asked God for, but after the offer was presented to me, all I heard was get your house order and organize in every are of your life. I heard 30 days.

I began working on it right way. The 1st thing I did, was write out a plan on how I was going to tackle all of my task that was set before. Before I can take on another obligation, I must do this 1st. Get my house in order.

dresses-53319_1280

I wrote a plan for decluttering every area in my home and this was not a surface plan. It was very detailed. I was not going to leave not one stone unturned. Sometimes we tackle the surface clutter that we see and neglect the clutter we can not see.

All of the hidden clutter I had to tackle was underneath the cabinets, inside the closets, inside the drawers, I no longer have a junk drawer because I assigned everything a place. Everything I had no use for, I donated it or I threw it away.

I tackled every room in my house and as I was cleaning and decluttering, I was making a list of all the things that needed fixed or mending.

I heard in my spirit, get a system for how you would keep it clean, and  do it the same way every time. I created me a system for every room and I created me an inventory list after every system of things that needed to be purchased for the upkeep of that particular room.

Sometimes our breakthroughs are attached to the things we are willing to give up. Sometimes our prosperity is attached to the things we are willing to implement and do. Sometimes clutter is an indicator of the things we are still holding on to, and sometimes God is just trying to make sure we lay a proper foundation before we build our house so it is not built upon a faulty foundation.

washing-machine-902359_1920

Today it has been a week since my purging and decluttering and I have 2 more rooms to tackle. I will complete them today. The laundry room and the basement.

While I was cleaning, I was thanking God for all of the blessings that are in my life. As I cleaned and decluttered each room, I realize how abundantly blessed I am.

I have clean running water, a warm bed to lay my head down on, heat on those cold nights, cover to keep warm, food in the refrigerator, an amazing husband that affords me the luxury of being a stay at home mom to our children, a home that is paid off, cars that are paid off and a whole host of other blessings.

As I have been extremely grateful, I have being noticing things showing up in my life, big blessing that reminds me of what God said in Matthew 6:25-34 KJV:

Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

yellow-845783_1920.jpg

And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:” “And yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.” 

“Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?” “Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?” “(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.” “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”

I believe I am doing what I am suppose to be doing right now, It feels so in alignment. All I know is God is up to something good and I am excited to see what that is and I will keep you posted. But until then, what is God putting on your heart in this season of your life. Please do not say I don’t know. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you and began implementing it right away.

It is not by accident that you clicked on “Breakthrough Blog 4 Women.” I believe our paths was meant to cross. There is something that you need to know in this article that will help you on your life’s journey.

I want to share with you 5 spiritual laws that is going to make a big difference in your life if you implement them.

These principles can set you free from those who you have been allowing to control your life, they can set you free from yourself, and they can set you free from your past and show you how go into your future with a new mindset.

If you implement this first principle alone you will sleep like a baby tonight.

Principle #1 The Law of Forgiveness

The Law of Forgiveness states, “in order for God to forgive you, you have to for give others.” Mark 11:25 ESV

In order for things to change in your life, you have to forgive anyone who has ever hurt you, violated you and offended you. You have to forgive yourself for not always making the best choices for your life. You have to forgive God for any unanswered prayers, any disappointment you may be feeling and for not protecting you from someone who violated you.

When our life has not worked out the way we think it should have, we play the blame game and hold unforgiveness in our heart towards the people or things that violated us.

All of those negative emotions that you are feeling inside your heart, the pain that you are feeling and even some sickness, has a lot to do with you not forgiving.

When you forgive someone, you are doing it for your sake so you can be free. We think if we do not hold people hostage, we are letting them off the hook and saying it is ok what you’ve done to me.

No, it is never ok for someone to violate you, but your refusal to forgive them is keeping you unhappy and bitter. Some of the addictions that you have is because you use it to cover the pain of what was done to you. You have to release it, so your life can prosper and you can find peace. Allow God to fight on your behalf.

Romans 12:19 ESV Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”

You have to forgive yourself, you are worthy to be forgiven. Sometimes we have a hard time forgiving others because we hold ourselves at such a high standard. We need to learn to give forgiveness to ourselves. So what, you made a bad choice, just ask for forgiveness and move on. Tell yourself, ” I forgive you for not being perfect.” You deserve mercy and you deserve grace, please give it to yourself.

Principle #2 The Law of Thinking

The Law of thinking states that, “whatever you hold in your in mind, in a habitual way, becomes your reality in time.”

If you can control your thoughts, you can control your life! You have to master your thought life.

Research shows that the human mind has more than 50,000 to 70,000 thoughts a day. Others too believe that 70% to 80% of the human thoughts are negative.

You can always tell what a person is really thinking, just listen to his or her conversations. I recommend you buy the book by James Allen “As a Man Thinketh” it will change your life.

For example, someone hurt you and you make up in your mind that you are going to forgive them. It takes faith to forgive, but the thoughts of them hurting you keep playing over and over in our mind. How do you think you are going to react to that person when you see them again if you do not cast down those thoughts? Probably not so good, because you have played it over and over in our mind how they hurt you.

You must capture every thought before it lodges in your mind and takes residence. One of the ways I control my thoughts is by stopping it before it enters. This can be very tricky at first because you are used to allowing anything in your thoughts. This will require lots of effort on your part. You can not be lazy. You have to really focus.

It is like playing a game, your job is to not let the thoughts enter at all, and the thoughts entering wants to catch you off guard, so it can set up camp by taking over your thoughts and feeding your mind with lies, fear, and unforgiveness. What you think about and meditate on, you will eventually act out.

If you can train your thoughts and block the negative chatter before it enters, and replace it with a positive thought, you can change your life, to one of peace, happiness and abundance.

This is what I do when a negative thought tries to enter my mind, as soon as I recognize it is as a negative thought, I cast that thought down and then I replace it with what I want to see happen.

Make sure your thoughts are lining up with only what you want to see come into your life because it will take you places only you can dream of, and that goes for thoughts of negativity or positivity.

marketing-man-person-communication.jpg

Principle #3 The Law of Your Confession

The Law of confession states that, “Life and death are in the power of your tongue and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:21

I want you to really get this principle. Words carry energy,  before you release them out of your mouth, make sure you think about what kinds of results you want them to bring to you.

Your words alone can change your life. If you have never paid attention to your words and the things that are coming out of your mouth, today is the day you will become aware of how your words have impacted your life!

Your words and your thoughts are in direct correlation to each other, that is way you have to gain control of your thoughts because it come out in your words. But you can have a wrong thought and reject it by the power of your words.

For example, you have a thought to come across your mind, I am not smart enough to past this test. Use the power of your words to speak to your thought and make it obey what you want it to do. Do not allow that thought to be spoken out of your mouth. Speak opposite of what that thought want you to do or say, and say it over and over again. Say out of your mouth, I am going to pass this test. Never speak of what you don’t want to show up in your life.

Proverbs 18-21 says that with the fruit of a man’s mouth his stomach will be satisfied; He will be satisfied with the product of his lips. 

Speaking only of what you love will combat all negativity. Take a moment to pay attention to what keeps showing up in your life that you are not happy with. Could it be because you are using your mouth to tear it down by speaking of what you don’t want to show up? But remember, the only way you can change your words is to change what you are thinking about.

confession

Principle #4 The Law of Belief

The Law of Belief states that, “you get out of your life what you truly believe you can receive.” Rather you believe you can have something or not, you are working the law of belief.

Mark 11:24 ESV Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

You have to believe in yourself and you have to believe in the words that your are speaking over yourself because it does not matter what they say, it only matters what you say and what you think about yourself.

No one has the power to stop you from becoming great only you have the power to stop yourself from becoming great or achieving anything in your life. But you have got to believe in yourself so much that you believe in your own hype.

How was I able to change the negative inner dialogue that I was having with myself? By taking on the words that God said about me first, and then getting in front of the mirror and changing the negative inner dialogue that I was having with myself.

At first this is going to seem silly, but you have to become obsessed with it until you believe it, and then your action is going to line up with what you think about yourself.

There will be negative chatter all around you, trying to make you feel like you don’t belong. We live in a culture where others want you to feel inferior to them. You have no one to be afraid of. Hold your head up high you are royalty, it came with you when you were born. You were never meant to blend in with the crowd you was always created to shine and sparkle. You were never created like anyone else, so why are you trying to be just like everybody else?

You have your own uniqueness, talents, gifting and skills. You have your own finger print. That is an indicator that you were not suppose to be like others. There is something so special about what you were so uniquely designed to do, that even if you had the same talent as someone else, you would put your own spin on it.

Your looks, your race and your genes were created just for you. You are a gift to this world. but if you don’t embrace who are and be proud of where you come from, we are never going experience your brilliance because you don;t think you have what it takes. So celebrate being different and stand out and shine!

pexels-photo-128899.jpegPrinciple # 5 The Law of Reciprocity  

The Law of Reciprocity states, “whenever you say anything that causes people to feel better about themselves, they have a deep unconscious need to reciprocate.”

Matthew 7:12 – Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

The reverse is also true in that, if you do something that hurts others, they will feel the need to hurt you back as well, so be careful how you treat others and how you talk to others.

You never know why a person is treating you the way they are treating you, it could be is because you have treated them certain way. You probably won’t get it back from the person you have treated bad or good, it probably would come back from someone total different.

Luke 6:31 – And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.

We have a deep psychological need to be even with others. If a person does something for you, we feel a need to get even by doing something nice in return.

There comes a time in everyones life when you have to pay attention to what keep showing up in your life, I mean you really have to stop and look at the choices that you are making that is causing particular result in your life.

I don’t know if you know it or not, but you have the power to change the direction in which your life is headed. I am going to say this to you again. I don;t know if you know it or not but you have the power to change the direction in which your life is headed

So you be the first to put this law in order,

Mark 12:31 – And the second [is] like, [namely] this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

Have a grateful heart towards everyone you meet, and treat everyone with kindness and respect you never know who God will use to get you to the next level or to help you.

The Law of Reciprocity could be as simple as is you holding the door for someone, being kind and considerate, giving some one a worthy compliment, being respectful to authority, respecting the rights of others, helping someone out by lending a helping hand, talking to others with respect, making sure you are operating out of positivity and always coming from a good place.

You Are Different, Love Who you are!

Looking back over my life, I am reminded of the many blessing that have been bestowed upon me. Taking mental note of the time I visited the rich continent of Africa and seeing all the beautiful people of color who look just like me, I felt like I was at home.

images

Remembering the smile that never left my face as I gazed at the thousands of people on the street hustling for their families and fighting for survival trying to get the next sell as women and children embrace the roadside selling roasted corn, peanuts, boiled eggs, coconut shavings, grilled meat and drinks.

I saw my sisters walking like stallions, so poised and statues. It was so natural and effortless for them to carry a whole tray of goods to sell on the top of their heads. I knew in that instant that these women were the real models of the world.

If you put African women on the runway it would be no problem for them to embrace and ace the runway with physique, poise, beauty, grace and charm as such as their own.

I was reminded in that instant that these are my people, I came from them, I felt so proud to have come from a lineage that is hardworking, industrious, strong, beautiful, innovative, rich with presence and culture.

adult-1866540_1920

I do not think you can truly know yourself until you have met the Heavenly Father and accept His son Jesus and if you do not know your history. God in his infinite wisdom assigned a plan for us and that included our race, our lineage, culture, purpose, gifting, skills, assignment and our faith. Every person on earth must embrace theses two truths.

Rather you are African American, African, Latino, Caucasian, Asian or Indian, you must seek revelation of who God ordained you to be when He put you on planet earth.

If we are going to survive on planet earth, the human race must co-exist together regardless of the idea that God had for us when we came to this planet.

It is not God’s design for one race to try and oppress another race, or to out do another culture. Competitiveness, oppression, rejection and mental enslavement is of the devil. There is nothing good about the oppression of anyone. Hierarchy is only justified when everyone is treated with fairness, love, dignity, respect and pride. There is no place for that kind of behavior in the Kingdom of God.

hawaiian-hula-dancers-aloha-stadium-dod-photo-by-usaf-tech-54093

But I am not only talking about injustice against race, but injustice in all forms. Injustice can be in our own culture, in our own families, in our congregations, on our jobs, it can be injustice against the elderly, injustice against the poor, injustice and oppression of women. I love what the book of James has to say about this subject.

James 2:1-8 My brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. For if a man wearing a gold ring and fine clothing comes into your assembly, and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in, and if you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and say, “You sit here in a good place,” while you say to the poor man, “You stand over there,” or, “Sit down at my feet,” have you not then made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts? Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him? But you have dishonored the poor man. Are not the rich the ones who oppress you, and the ones who drag you into court? Are they not the ones who blaspheme the honorable name by which you were called?

If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well.

James 3:13-18 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him show out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.

But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

What is so sad to me is that, we do not know our culture and where we come from. We are ashamed of our history, we are ashamed of our culture. We do not know our lineage. It is true that our culture has been stripped from us and some of us never heard of our true origin, but that is not an excuse anymore, we need to find out our rich heritage by opening up books and reading and researching on the internet. We need to get back to loving our true identities. That goes for all culture!

Every person on earth comes from God and everything God created is beautiful. It is absurd to think God created one group of people better than the next group. We are all exceptional human beings, with intelligence and brilliance beyond our wildest imagination.

We were all designed to flourish on earth together, this is not an exclusive planet. We are not robots that were created to operate just alike. We were put here to embrace the beauty of everyone, to give each human being a chance to express the creativity of our maker. To celebrate our difference, to distinquish ourselves from each other, to stand out in the crowd, we were never meant to blend in with society.

tumblr_occckw2hsd1vovk39o1_500-2

My cultural clothes, my hair, my features, my physique, my lineage was never meant to bring me shame. But they were created to bring glory to me, and they were always meant for me to stand out from the rest and to shine.

My dark beautiful skin was alway meant for me to shine!

and you my beautiful Latino, Asian, Caucasian and Indian sisters were meant to shine as well. And this saying goes for all of us, when you reject my skin, my culture, my lineage you are rejecting yourself, when you look away when you see the color of my skin, you just confirm the lack of love you have for yourself, because God is love and we are all made in the images and likeness of God. We all came from God!

Lets heal by embracing each other differences. Lets support womanhood  because at the core of our being, we share the same commonalities, we are mothers, wives, women with dreams, women who wants the same equal opportunities, women who wants acceptance to just be ourselves to the core of our being, women who wants understanding and women who  wants a better life for our families.

I hope this blog post open your eyes to embracing who God created you be and except others for who God created them to be. Our world will be a better place for it.

Principle #6

The Power of Visualization

Why have I included visualization as a principle in this 6 part series? Because it is one of the main component in achieving all the other principles. So far, I have shared with you attitudes, behaviors, principles and the word of God on your ways of being. This whole series was about you being made whole. We established that God is the only one you can put your trust in, because he is the only one that is reliable and loves you unconditionally, plus he created you and knows you like no other.

We talked about changing your words so, you can change your life. We also talked about how your seeds are your thoughts and your words, and planting good seeds by thinking and speaking positive words over your life, will produce abundant crops and an amazing life.

We talked about having a positive mindset, verses a negative mindset. We talked about walking in forgiveness and love with others and yourself. We talked about being a woman of prayer and having standards and keeping it classy and not trashy. We talked about what it mean to have true confidence and falling in love with who God created you to be, and much more.

Now I want you to take it up a notch by actually seeing your new life right in front of you, by putting real time pictures of what that will actually look like for you.

In principle #1 and principle#2 we talked about finding your purpose and enjoying your own company. I advised you to go out and purchase a journal and write down things you love and want to do and start doing them, and places you want to visit and all of the things that you love. If you haven’t done that yet please do it, do not skip this part. You are creating your new life. What is that going to look like 5 years from now? Make sure you include your amazing husband sent from God.

If you have never had a vision for your life, you have one now!

Proverbs 29:18 – Where [there is] no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy [is] he.

No longer is your life going to be perishing away in unfulfillment and with out goals, dreams and a vision for where you want your life to go.

How are you going to keep the vision in front of you? I will tell you how you are going to keep the vision in front of you; you are getting ready to make it real to your mind and your sight by creating a Vision Board.

vision-board-520757_1920.jpg

I want you to break your dreams, goals, vision, and purpose down by categories. I think you should have a vision for six important areas in your life because this is how you are going to bring balance in your life and find true fulfillment and happiness.

Categories:

1. Relationships: Spouse, kids, friendship, family, Network, Mentors

2. Spirituality: Relationship with God, prayer, meditation, confessions,

3. Job/Purpose: Calling, life work, dream job, financial wealth

4. Health: exercise, eating healthy, grooming, me time

5. Desires: material objects, house, car, where you want to live

6. Leisure/Travel/Fun: place you want to visit, actives that excite you.

You can title your board whatever you want to, that is all up to you. This might be new to some people, so I will give you some ideas of what others have named their board. Some people call it a Vision, Dream, Inspiration, Faith, Prayer, Desire, and Breakthrough Board. I call mines a Faith Map.

A board is not the only thing people use to create what they want their new life to look like, but they are also creating a book of their dreams, mind movies and tech savvy individuals are creating vision boards online.

A book is a very structure way for you to focus on one category at a time. On the front cover of your book, you will title it for example, “Faith Board” then you will use a title for each category. For example, “RELATIONSHIPS” under relationships, you would create subtitle like “Marriage” then you are going to put pictures of what you want to see happen in this area of your life. Rather you want a better marriage with your spouse, or you want to get married. You are going to cut out pictures that resemble how you want your marriage to be or how you want your wedding to look.

The better your details, the better you can visualize it actually happening in your life. Don’t forget to add scriptures, confession, quotes, or inspirational saying to your page. You can also add real photos of yourself in place of someone else’s so you can see yourself in that light.

I have one major disclaimer; you can ONLY add photos of yourself if you want to get married. Do not add any pictures of a person that you think is your spouse and they have not agreed to marrying you. Do not add a photo of anyone you know or that you are in a relationship with. Your job is to believe God will give you your heart’s desire and that is to get married to a spouse after God’s own heart. The only will, you have control over is yours, and not another person. It is God’s plan that his will prevail in the end.

bride-1826396_1920

You can also use photo of your children only in a positive light, for example if you want a better relationship with your children, or you want true happiness or fulfillment for their life.

For “Vision Movies,” all you are going to do is find pictures that represent what you want your new life to look like for each category listed in the above paragraph. You can take your own photos or get the photos from online. You can also use photos of yourself with mind movies. All you need is a program that will allow you to crop, copy, and paste.

Some of the programs I know that work best for this, are programs like, Picture It and Photoshop, they can help you crop your head and place it on the idea body you want to achieve, or if you want to be married and like a particular wedding gown, you can put your face in place of it. You can use the text feature to write your favorite scripture, confession, or quote. Then you can upload the pictures to a slide and add your favorite inspirational music to it, and see yourself every day with your new life.

Last, creating a board online has become very popular. There are all kinds of websites that are encouraging people to join their online communities by creating a dream, purpose, goal, inspiration, and faith and vision boards. All you have to do is type in the topics that I have listed in the previous sentences and all kinds of sites will pull up. The site I use is call Pinterest.com. Pinterest is free to use and allows you to pin boards from their online communities to your board.

You can share your boards with your community or you can chose to keep it private. Pinterest has created a Pinterest pin that can take pictures from any sites that inspires you and pin it to your board. All you have to do is sign up for an account on Pinterest and download the Pinterest app to your computer, and go anywhere online that inspires you and collect your pictures and push your Pinterest symbol and pin it to your board it is so fun to do!

What people love about creating a board online, is that it eliminates the work and time involved in gathering the materials it actually take to create a board.

By the way, I have created my boards using all of the methods listed above.

The materials and tools you are going to need to create a physical board or book are, a pair of scissors, stick glue (because it is less messy), magazines, a big board or book (you can buy them at any Dollar Tree. For your book, I recommend buying a big construction paper book or a big skechers book at Walmart or Target). You need your personal pictures and the ones you get from your magazines, your favorite scriptures, quotes, and or confessions, markers, glitter, pens, gel pens, pencils and color pencils if your choose to get creative.

Since I started with making a Vision Board, I will end this chapter by showing you how to create your own very board and the best way to use your board for a faster manifestation.

Pick a day that you are not going to be interrupted. Turn off all electrical devices until you have finished creating your board. Remember this is all about you and creating your new life from changing your mindset, health, services to others (because that’s all purpose, calling, dream job is, serving others). Travel, me time etc.

pexels-photo-179912.jpeg

Put on some inspirational music. Make a cup of tea and just dream and listen to your heart. Put things on your board that you feel like God is showing you for your new life. Put on your board some of the things you desire as well. There is a scripture in the Bible that reads,

Psalms 37:4 KJV that reads, Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Create your board in a clean and neat environment there is something about being in an organized space, it helps your thoughts to be clear.

Before you begin, gather all of your pictures. Cut out pictures from magazines that inspire you, or if you have a computer and a printer, find your pictures from online and print them off your computer. Before you gather your photos, title your board. After you have gathered all of your photos and inspirational sayings, (you can also just write your scriptures, quotes, inspirational sayings, and confession). Place them on your board before you glue them down, by the six categories listed for you in the previous paragraph.

This will help you to analyze your pictures and bring cohesiveness to your board. Feel free to use the back of your board as well, if you run out of space on the front of your board. After you have organized your board, you can glue your pictures down. If you want to get creative with your board by putting your personal touch to it, now is the time to do it.

To get the best use out of your board, place it in a place where you can see it upon waking up and going to bed. You want to look at your board at least twice a day. Take about 15 minutes when you wake up and before you go to bed to concentrate on your board.

Imagine what it would feel like to manifest your new life. Pretend that you are actually living your new life when you look at your board. This is where you use your visualization techniques. Do not just look at your board, visualize what is on your board, feel the feeling inside your body as you are pretending that you are living in your new life in the moment. Speak aloud your scriptures and confessions that is on your board.

Choose to show it to your family or those that you trust, or you can choose to show it to no one and keep it private. If you can talk about your board with a trusted dream partner, then talk about it as if you have already obtained it. Stay away from the doubting Thomas’s and the negative Nancy’s. Never come into agreement with anyone who is speaking opposite of what you believe God to manifest in your life. Pray over your board and ask God for guidance as you navigate to your new life. Ask him to give you his best in every situation.

Read books and look at testimonies online of others who have obtain their dreams in the areas you want to obtain yours; this will keep your faith engaged in your goals and dreams. When the spirit of truth prompt your heart to do something towards your goals take fast action!

Last, but not least, make sure you are staying in Faith. Believe this can actually happen for you. Never talk against the things you believe to happen for you on your board, by doubting. It will take longer to come or not come at all. Now get ready to see your life change, in 5 years you would not recognize your life.

I hope this blog post helps you to declare your season. I would love to hear from you, let me know how this blog post have helped you, and follow me on Instagram, Facebook and twitter.

6 Principles Single Ladies Need To Have In Place To Attract Boaz!/Principle #5

Hello Ladies, we are coming to an end of “6 Principles Singles Ladies Need To Have in Place To Attract Boaz” We are on principle #5.

HOW TO DECLARE YOUR SEASON!

young-woman-fall-autumn-vintage-37529

I only have one more principle to tackle and that would end our series. I am adding a bonus blog post for Single Ladies with children, so please stay tuned for that blog post. I suggest you click this link to read all of the other principles.

Most people in the world do not know that they can declare their season. They think, they have to just take, what life throws at them. God gave you the power and the ability to change your season.

Things will remain the same in your life if, you do not know that you have the power to change it, as long as you feel powerless to change it, and if you do nothing about!

Declaring your season comes from Job 38-13 Have you ever in your life commanded the morning, and caused the dawn to know its place, that it might take hold of the ends of the earth, and the wicked be shaken out of it.

God asked Job have he ever in his life commanded his morning, that it might take hold of the ends of the earth and the wicked be shaken out of it.

God gave us the power to command things to be removed out of our life and he gave us the power to call in our season. What I love about different seasons, is that different things grow according to the seeds that you have planted, if you are planting destructive seeds, then that is what will grow for you. If you have planted good seeds, then your seeds will yield amazing fruit.

Single Ladies, I really need you to get this principle, because this principle is going to lead you to your breakthrough. If you have paid attention to any of my blog posts, they have to do with this principle right here. Seeds time, declaring, calling in your harvest, planting good seeds.

pexels-photo-169523.jpeg

So how do you do that? How do you call in your season? You can find out in the next scripture.

Job 22:28 says: You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and light will shine on your ways.

When your heart is pure before God and you want to do things God’s way, you can decree a thing and it will be established for you.

A decree means: an official order issued by a legal authority. God is saying; He has given you the power and the authority to order your days, months, and years and the way in which you order it, is what will be established for you.

To declare means: to say something in a solemn and empathetic manner. Meaning, the words that you declare must be heartfelt and true for you and you must be clear in what you want for your life. Because what you speak on a daily basis about your life, will be enforced by your words. Whatever has been coming out of your mouth is creating the life you have right now. Whether it is good or bad, what you are declaring is creating it and the light will shine on your ways. You want to know what you been speaking or thinking about your life, look around you! Look at your relationships, environment, job, habits, finances, kids, etc. The light is shed on all areas of your life!

Your thoughts and words are seeds!

If you can change your thoughts and your words to that of opulence, abundance, wholesomeness, wealth, love and forgiveness, you can have an amazing life.

Plant good seeds by speaking exactly what you want to see come into your life and your environment. You also have to put right action with what you are speaking. For example, you want to stop a certain addiction, right action would be to never frequent the places, or watch things on TV  that causes you to fall back into the behavior.

woman-1172718_1920.jpg

I am reminded of a story about a woman named Hannah,

Hannah was married to a man named Elkanah. Back in those days, men married more than one wife. Elkanah also had another wife named Peninnah. Peninnah bore for her husband, sons and daughters, but Hannah had none. Hannah was really effected by the fact that she could not bore children for her husband. The scripture says, the Lord closed Hannah womb. Why did the Lord close her womb? It did not say. But Elkanah loved Hannah more and whenever the day came for Elkanah to sacrifice, he would give portions of the meat to his wife Peninnah and to all her sons and daughters.

But to Hannah he gave a double portion because he loved her. And because the LORD had closed her womb, her rival kept provoking her in order to irritate her. This went on year after year. Whenever Hannah went up to the house of the LORD, her rival provoked her till she wept and would not eat. Elkanah her husband would say to her, “Hannah, why are you weeping? Why don’t you eat? Why are you downhearted? Don’t I mean more to you than ten sons?

 Once when they had finished eating and drinking in Shiloh, Hannah stood up. Now Eli the priest was sitting on a chair by the doorpost of the LORD’s temple. In bitterness of soul Hannah wept much and prayed to the LORD. And she made a vow, saying, “O LORD Almighty, if you will only look upon your servant’s misery and remember me, and not forget your servant but give her a son, then I will give him to the LORD for all the days of his life, and no razor will ever be used on his head.”

As she kept on praying to the LORD, Eli observed her mouth. Hannah was praying in her heart, and her lips were moving but her voice was not heard. Eli thought she was drunk and said to her, “How long will you keep on getting drunk? Get rid of your wine.” “Not so, my lord,” Hannah replied, “I am a woman who is deeply troubled. I have not been drinking wine or beer; I was pouring out my soul to the LORD. Do not take your servant for a wicked woman; I have been praying here out of my great anguish and grief.”

Eli answered, “Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of him.”She said, “May your servant find favor in your eyes.” Then she went her way and ate something, and her face was no longer downcast

Hannah had to say to herself no more! No more is my enemy going to make a spectacle of me. No more am I going to go another year feeling shame, unworthy, down trodden and cast out of the favor of God. No more of feeling jealous of Peninnah for receiving her blessing year after year. The scripture said, she couldn’t even eat. Which says to me, she was fasting. Hannah got up from that table (and I am paraphrasing) and said; this will be the last day I live without my promise! I am declaring my season.

I am getting ready to get before my God and change my heart so I can receive the blessing of God for my life. And just like Hannah, you are going to have to do the same thing. The situation upset Hannah so, that she had to do somthing about it. She went into her war room and cried out to God and he granted her favor! Then when she received her answer she ate something. The next morning she rose up to worship her God.  And then she made love to her husband and concieved and gave birth to her promise. Her son was born and she named him Samuel.

wedding-1601201_1920

Hannah wanted a child but what do you want from the Lord ? A husband after God’s own heart. Right now, I want you to declare your season! Go into your war room and pour out your heart before God. Tell him all about it, he can turn it around for you!

When you are believing God for any promise, do not come into agreement with anyone that wants to destroy your seed. Remember your seeds are your thoughts and your words.

When thoughts comes across your mind and it does not line up with what God’s words says and if it does not line up with what you are believing for, speak back to the thoughts and speak back to those words that is trying to destroy and kill your seed!

For example, a thought comes across your mind,” who wants to married me, I have a past that I am ashamed of.” You speak back to that thought, God says, “He has separated my sins as far as the east is from the west and he remembers it no more and therefore I do not remember it either.” When my husband finds me, he will love me just the way I am. He is a man of strong forgiveness and will never repeat or hold my past against me.

If you are around other woman and they are saying, there are no good men left, you speak back to them and say, “Ladies yes it is, God has my good God fearing husband reserved just for me, and at any moment, he will find me. You better not come into agreement with thoughts and words that is opposite of what you are believing for because it is trying to destroy your crops.

I want to teach you to get clear on anything. I use this technique that is called a “clarity statement,” it helps me to get clear so I can pray for exactly what I want.

Get out a piece of paper, I want you to draw a line in the middle of the paper. On one side of the paper, I want you to write down things you do not want and like. On the other side of the paper, I want you to write things I want and like.

pexels-photo-110473-2

So here’s how it should look. I will use a situation I went through when I wanted to have more children as an example.

Things I do not want or like

1. Not being able to carry my baby

2. Not knowing what the problem was

3. Being fearful of losing the baby

4. Uncaring Doctor’s

5. The feeling of not being in control

6. Having an incompetent cervix

7. Having fibroids

Things that I want or l like

1. I want to carry my baby to full term

2. I want to know what the problem is

3. To have assurance and trust that I was going to carry this baby to full term

4. Caring considerate doctor who is concern about what is going on with me and my situation

5. I want to feel in control

6. I want a strong tight healthy cervix that can carry my baby to full term

7. I wanted the fibroids to be completed gone

Now the list of things you do not like or want, crossed them out by making a big X. You are no longer allowed to talk about what you do not want or like. Never!

I want you to take some scissors and cut up the middle of that list, and the list of things that you want and like has now become your new prayer and positive confession statements. Throw away the list you do not want or like.

I found every scripture about my situation to make it more believable to me, and I put it with my positive confession statement.

So now, my confession everyday was what I wanted and it brought great feeling on the inside of me. My assurance was there and my trust in God was there. I had such a peace that it was already done for me. Key! I visualized it as I said my faith and positive confession.

Down below is my clarity statement, feel free to copy the beginning statement in highlight and write in your things you do want or like after the highlighted statement. Make it into a believable sentence that make sense to you. Just like I had to make mines make sense to me.

 Clarity Statement

I am in the process of attracting all that I need to do, know and have to attract my ideal child bearing situation.

I love knowing that my idea child bearing situation allows me to carry my baby to full term.

I love the idea that I always know what is going on with my body and child bearing situation.

More and more I have an assurance and trust God that I am going to carry my baby to full term and my baby will be strong and healthy with a very strong heart beat.

I am excited that I have a doctor that cares about me, my baby and my situation. My doctor is both kind and considerate of me.

More and more I am feeling in at peace of what’s going on with my child birth situation.

I love how it feels to have a tight, healthy and closed cervix that is strong and able to carry my healthy baby, who has a strong heart beat to full term.

I am excited at the thought of God healing my body and I am excited about being fibroids free.

Now get every scripture from the Bible to support your dream or goal and began to incorporate them with your faith confession. Use this format to make your own clarity statement.

I hope this blog post helps you to declare your season. I would love to hear from you, let me know how this blog post have helped you, and follow me on Instagram, Facebook and twitter.

6 Principles Single Ladies Need To Have In Place To Attract Boaz/Cont. Principle #3

Single Ladies this is the end of principle #3,”LETTING GO OF BAGGAGE.” This is a 6 part series of “6 PRINCIPLES SINGLE LADIES NEED TO HAVE IN PLACE TO ATTRACT BOAZ.” I’ve taken longer on Principle #3 because there were so many layers to this principle, that I had to give each baggage its own blog post.

Please click the links to read the previous principles.

Principle #1, What you need to be and what he needs you to be

Principle #2, Enjoying your own company

Principle #3, The baggage of bitterness, hatred, strife, and unforgiveness, 

Principle #3, The baggage of jealousy, envy, covetousness and strife

In this blog we are going to talk about,

pexels-photo-87293

“Sexual Sins and the Spirit of Lust and Seduction”

I would be remiss if I did not talk about the baggage of sexual sins and the spirit of lust and seduction. When I told God yes to partnering with him to help his daughters be made whole in every area of their life, I made a commitment to God, and there were certain assignments, I was given to expose the works of darkness. I wrote an article about “5 Ways to Overcome Any Addiction,” please take time to read this article because I will not cover it in this blog. If you are struggling with any addiction and want to get set free from sexual sins and the spirit of seduction read this article. It will be advantageous to your deliverance.

Before I get into this topic let us get the mind of God on this subject.

I Thessalonians 4 :1-8. We beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God,

For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honor not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God.

That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified. For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.

The highlighted parts in pink are important because this is the will of God for single ladies. You never have to doubt again if that sexual relationship you are in is of God, because that is not his will for you according to scripture. Now, if you really want to know if this is a relationship God wants the both of you to pursue, stop having sex with him, and do it God’s way.

The #1 question you should ask yourself before pursuing any relationship with a man is, will this be a godly covenant? Does he have a true relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Are we equally yoked? Just because you are having a sexual relationship with him does not mean you can not pursue a godly covenant with him now, but both parties must be willing to do it Gods way. Abstain from fornication until after you both have said I do.

pexels-photo-110204.jpeg

I tried getting around writing on this topic but I felt like I would be robbing my sisters of the breakthrough that they really deserve. I escape the deadly sin of lust and was delivered from it. It was so freeing not to be bound with that sin anymore. I want the same for you. A lot of single ladies struggle with this sin. I am not writing to you because I had it all together in this area because I did not. I am writing to you to warn you just like the passage in the Bible talks about, how the rich man went to hell and wanted to go back and warn his brothers.  He did not have an opportunity to go back and warn his brothers.

Take heed today single ladies, God allowed me to escape it! I came back to expose it and help you to deal with it!

Lust is a deadly sin. It is not to be played with, but you would not know this unless you have been delivered from it. I want to see my single sisters delivered, I do not want the enemy taken you out prematurely and settling for less than what God ordained for you. One wrong encounter with the wrong person can end your life.

You never know you are in darkness, until you have seen the light, and you never know what real love is until God has to show it to you. And you never know the grace that is on your life until you have escape from the snare of the fowler. And you never appreciate your life, until you have taken an aids test and you past it. If you have been promiscuous.

There are some things that are going on with single ladies in the Kingdom of God that has to be dealt with. Today if you just keep reading you will be delivered!

God wants his daughters whole. The enemy has been using single ladies to partner in his work against your sisters in Christ, against marriages, and against God’s leaders. Yes, I am talking about born again, tongue talking believers of the most high God and unbelievers alike.

Not another day will you be used to build the works of darkness kingdom. God wants to deal with this sin in the believer’s life. Both men and women. But since I am writing to you Single Lady, today God is talking to you.

pexels-photo-192555.jpeg

Some of you are struggling with lust and want to be delivered from it so badly, but do not know how to get free from this sin. Some of you are waddling in this sin and you know what you are doing is just flat out wrong, but you have built up a resistance to the things of God and just don’t care. Hopeful after reading this blog post your heart will be back open to the things of God and after He shows you how much He loves you and care about you. God wants you to have his best for your life.

A man knows the difference between a woman who wants attention and showing all of her goodies, from a classy confident woman who do not need that kind of negative attention. Yes, he will be drawn to you because you are enticing to him, but he will never commit to you but in the bed. He will be drawn to her because she has standards, leaving something to the imagination, she is classy and confident. She knows that she do not need to display her goodies to get attention. Her confidence and smile speaks for itself. She is mysterious to him and he wants to get to know her because there is something that is different and special about her. She is not like all the other women he is use to seeing, that exposes her body to get noticed.

Some ladies will do anything to feel loved. Lust is not love, but because you do not know what real love is, you substitute lust for love. You have to stop your self destructive behaviors. If you are a Christian then your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, but that lust addiction, is going to destroy you if you do not gain control of it. I am qualified to speak into your life because when I was a single Lady, I struggled with some of the same things. I want you to know, that I am not judging you. I want you to be free from every snare of the enemy. I want you to know what the Bible says about sexual sins and sins of the flesh. Some of you have made some spoken and unspoken covenant with the spirit of darkness, and they need to be broken.

Galatians 5:19-21 ESV Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God

Romans 13:13 ESV Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarreling and jealousy

2 Peter 2:2 ESV And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed

Roman 1-24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another

Roman 1-26 NLT That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other

Stop those self-destructive behaviors that causes you to give your body to multitudes of men and women. Lesbianism (being involved sexually with another women), having orgies (multiple people having sex with each other all at the same time) masturbation (pleasing yourself sexual), adultery (involved sexual with a married man), porn (watching nasty movies) and every sin that have to do with sex and perversion are all against God intended design. You are using sex to medicate the pain of feeling unworthy and unloved.

All you wanted was attention and to be loved, accepted, wanted, cherished, valued, adored and you found a distorted way of obtaining it, and this thing has grown into an addiction. Some of you have said to yourself, I will never again feel the pain of rejection and now you are acting it out in all kinds of ways to get attention and be the girl that is on top. Some of you do not know how the words you spoke, entered you into a covenant agreement with the spirit of darkness.

Single ladies, who have a covenant with God should never be operating like others who do not know God, but it is happening. Christian woman who are married and single ladies are breaking covenant with God left and right. There has been a spirit of seduction that has been released in this generation. Look at who the worldly role models are and our Christian role models. They are embracing the red carpet, concerts, award ceremonies and everyday life wearing little to no clothes, showing their panties, showing breast, exposing their private parts and being bold and proud about it. The music and videos of the world is so sensual, fowl and seductive, no wonder way so many woman or dressing the way they are. The Christian community are trying to keep up with the world.

1 Timothy 2:9-10
Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments, but rather by means of good works, as is proper for women making a claim to godliness.

As covenant believers of the Lord Jesus Christ, we should not be patterning ourselves after the way the world dresses. From 1 Timothy 2:9-10 we should dress ourselves in the proper attire, modestly and discreetly. You should ask yourself before you walk out of the house, would God be pleased with what I am wearing. Woman are wearing enticing seductive clothing to get attention from anyone who wants to look.

Christian ladies are showing their breast, cleavage and panty line. They are wearing too little dresses and shorts. The are wearing tight leggings and are not covering up their back side, of course men are going to look at you. Married men and single men a like. That was your intentions before you walked out of the door, to entice men. So don’t go and tell your friend that sister Lee’s husband was staring at you. Everybody is staring at you because of your immodest dressing.

Modesty: having or showing regard for the decencies of behavior, speech, dress, etc.; decent:a modest neckline on a dress.

We are coming to the house of the Lord with wrong motive and impure intentions. There is a spirit of seduction that has entered our congregations. Single ladies as well as married ladies are operating of this spirit. God says we should live in the world but not part of the world.

Their is an attack on the leadership in our congregations, marriages and Christian marriages are not exempt. This spirit is destroying homes, breaking up congregations and causing the set men of God to destroy his marriage covenant and scatter the flock. There have been men of God that have fallen under this seductive seducing spirit. Married men and single men. And the devil is using woman to do it! I know men are luring woman as well, but my calling is to women. In Jesus Name! I claim back the wondering sister, I claim back the drifting sister, I claim back any of my sisters that is being used in a spirit of seduction.

1 Corinthians Chapter 7:1-21 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.

We have a generation of covenant breakers and it is seeping into our congregations. Single woman and married woman are being busy bodies meddling in the covenant marriage relationships. Woman are trying to play innocent and are secretively trying to seduce married men with glances of stares, laughing and smiling, touching on men they do not have a covenant with. Prancing and walking seductively in front of him, trying to get noticed by him. These are woman who have a covenant with God. They are being purposeful and intentional but want others to believe in their innocences. You might have people fooled, but God sees and knows everything. This is happening in the our congregations.

Ladies the scripture speaks in Corinthians 7:1-21 that it is not good that a man touch a woman that he is not married too. But woman are the ones during the touching. It is woman that is violating covenants. The scripture teaches to avoid fornication let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. Men are falling because the woman are making the connections by touching on men that are not their husband. Satan is subtle he comes in through a door least expected. It takes someone that is in tune with the Holy Spirit to recognize he subtleties because the Holy Spirit reveals all things.

Ladies you should not be touching on a man that is not your husband. Not on his back to say hello, or his arms, or with a hug and slightly rubbing your breast on him, not on his hands in a seductive manner. You should not touch him period! Use you words. We have all been taught to use our words. If you need to say hi, use your words and not your hands to do so. That will keep you out of trouble. I know some people can be touch feely but if you as a Christian woman want to properly position yourself, and keep your heart pure and clean before God uses this approach.

Single ladies guard your thoughts, allowing lustful perverted thoughts to enter your mind about a man that is not your husband or that is someone else’s husband is a dangerous thing to be playing with. Because your thoughts create your reality and you would start acting out when you see that man and his wife.You would start to get envious of his wife  who really have a covenant with him. You will be in sin because you are trying to interject yourself in a godly covenant marriage. If the man is not married, you will get jealous if you see that man with another woman and acting out towards her because in your mind you have built up this fantasy that you guys are a couple. You should not be fantasizing about any man that is not your husand.

God created sex to be enjoyed in a marriage relationship. A man married to a woman.

Proverbs 9:13-18 A foolish woman is clamorous: she is simple, and knoweth nothing. For she sitteth at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city, to call passengers who go right on their ways. Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: and as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him, stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant but he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell

Proverbs 9:13-18 says a woman who entice and seduce married and single men, who are not their husband is simple minded, she knows nothing. A man can be at home with his family going the right path and because your heart is not right and that spirit of lust and covetousness have attached it self to her, she will have seduced him right out of his home.

But proverbs says that the man that is lured by her is simple minded too.

I look up simple minded and it means: artless; unsophisticated; simple hearted foolish; stupid. Single lady do you want to seen as this definition describes? Do you want to be a home wrecker?

Proverbs 9:13-18 also talks about when men go into her, that her guest are in the depths of hell. Single lady this scriptures tells me that you are working for the devil. God is saying any man that goes into you in this state, is going to the dead and hell. You are killing these men. Tell the devil you are no longer using my body as an avenue to lure men into hell.

Ephesians 5:5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God

 

Single lady, that is why you have to be built up on the inside. You have to allow God to make you whole so you would not settle for the counterfeit attention and love from a man not worthy of your heart. You have stop selling yourself short and love yourself enough to stop your self destruction ways. God wants to show you what real love is. He love you so much that he do not want you to settle. Always making your self second class and second rate. You never have to get any body sloppy seconds. God wants to give you your own husband who will dedicate his love, time and attention to you. But you have to first cleanse your heart and rid yourself of destruction behavior and allow God to make you whole inside. Tell yourself that you will not be part of Satan tactics against the kingdom of God. You are on God’s side, You are a kingdom builder! Rid yourself of this baggage. So when your Boaz shows up he will find you peaceful and drama free!
