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.

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

This blog post is a continuation of principle #3 LETTING GO OF BAGGAGE.  Do not forget to read Principle #1 and Principle #2.

THE BAGGAGE OF JEALOUSY, ENVY, COVETOUSNESS AND STRIFE!

holding-hands-1772035_1920

Single Ladies, I thought I was going to hit on these principles and move on, but I have to deeply dive into these subjects so you can get free from the strongholds that is keeping you stuck and unhappy. Happiness and joy are your potion and you need them before you can attract a healthy whole relationship to you. God wants his daughters whole in every area of their life. Negativity keeps things from attracting to you. I am dealing with these emotions and helping you to clear the negative energy that is blocking and repelling wonderful and amazing relationships and friendships from coming into your life.

Before I go any farther, we all have been victims of one or all of these negative emotions that I am getting ready to expose. It is ok to admit to yourself that these emotions are trying to over take you. Do not be in denial of these emotions because then, they will overtake you if you do not deal with them.

A lot of pride comes with having these emotions, because when we were little girls, we were told it was wrong to display these emotions. When these emotions would surface in our heart, we felt weak, ashamed and we hid our emotions from ourselves and we hid our emotions from other people.

What we do not realize is that these emotions always reveal themselves in the way we conduct ourselves with others. They show up through our body language, words, lack of words, deeds and actions.

If you are in tuned with the Holy Spirit, He will reveal the heart of men all around you. Now don’t go looking for things because you will always find something, but if you are purposefully keeping your heart cleanse of falsity and evil  intentions before the Lord, then things can be shown to you in the spirit realm.

I do not think you can have true confidence until you let go of baggage. Having baggage will always make you feel insecure. Because holding on to baggage is just masking itself in a scarcity mindset. A scarcity mindset is just living with fears. You think there is not enough for you or you are lacking something. In your own mind, you think there is someone that have, look and is doing better than you. You fear someone is going to take something from you.

Within your own self, you feel like you have to compete to stay on top, because you fear someone is going to out shine you or is rejecting you. You fear others decisions that they have made for themselves and for some reason you take it personally and began to reject them for the decision they have made for themselves. You guys it will take me like 5 blog post to expose this thing. So I am going to try and keep this post to 2,600 words at the most or I might have to add a second blog post to this because I want to uncover Satan tactics.

So you with hold, you with hold your support, forgiveness, love, time, attention, compliments your encouragement. You see things through a negative lens because having these emotions displayed in your heart are all negative. You are carrying real baggage, and  it must be dealt with so you can feel confident and so you can feel secure about yourself and so you can know how to deal with these emotions when it raises its ugly head.

For the single ladies who need this, I want to apologize to you for the way you grew up and the lack of love and attention you didn’t get from your parents or those that were in your life who didn’t love your properly. I am sorry if you were always compared to other people. Comparison always bring on a competitive spirit, whether it is you doing the comparison in your own mind, or someone else comparing you to others, it is not good. I am sorry if a parent was not in your life or a relationship that you were in left you feeling rejected and abandon.

It is time for you to deal with these negative emotions, because they are keeping you in bondage and you are pushing people away from you, and at the same time you are repelling people away from you. These negative emotions are destroying the amazing freedom Christ Jesus died for you to have.

Theses emotions are destroying families, friendship and relationships, breaking up marriages, business and churches. They are destroying nations and countries.

The moment you compare yourself with someone it leads to discouragement, discontentment and jealousy. Jealousy is a twin to envy and cousins to gossip and strife and every evil work.  What does the Bible have to say about this and how to overcome it.

david-13710_1920

There was a story in the Bible about a man named Saul who was the King of the Israelites he had a right hand man name David who killed Goliath. David respected and honored Saul just like he respected and honored God. When David, was a young boy, he defeated Goliath and won Saul’s daughter hand in marriage. Saul made David his right hand man. David grew up and became handsome and strong. David defeated many enemies for King Saul and the children of Isreal. But this is what the children of Isreal started saying  and singing about David. Saul only killed thousands and David 10 thousands, and this is how Saul felt in his heart towards David.

 1 Samuel 18:8,9 And Saul was very wroth, and the saying displeased him; and he said, They have ascribed unto David ten thousands, and to me they have ascribed but thousands: and what can he have more but the kingdom? 9 And Saul eyed David from that day and forward. 

Anytime you stir up a competition amongst people, there will always be other people who feel like they do not measure up or see themselves as not valuable because they are not producing like someone else. Saul with in his self started to compare himself with David, while David was trying to do everything to win God’s approval, as well as Saul’s approval, Saul became suspicious of David from the moment people started to brag or talk about his achievements and when David started to achieve somethings that Saul did not achieve.

The jealousy and envy spirit is the spirit that all of us have to guard against. Saul became so envious of David that he started to gossip about David, find fault with him, Got with others to talk about him. Start telling lies about David. Start telling other people to watch him and spy on him and then his envy turned into strong hate and he wanted to kill David because he feared he would take his spot! Well yes, David destiny was to become King! And to do just as Saul had feared.

Instead of Saul becoming proud of David, encouraging him, supporting him and speaking well of him, he allowed the enemy to plant seeds of jealousy and envy in his heart towards him. David had done nothing wrong but supported Saul his whole Kingship. David had so much honor for Saul that he would not speak bad about the King even when he knew the King was trying to harm him. At first David was puzzled, because he knew he had followed protocol and had done everything right by the Kingship. David knew in his heart that he had done nothing wrong to King Saul or his Kingdom. This is where a lot of us miss it, so I am going to end this blog post by giving you the step to over come comparison, jealousy, envy and strife. But before I do I want to give you some breaking news.

There is greatness in all of us, God made everyone of us, it was genetics that gave you your features, eye color, hair color, hair texture, skin color, the family you were born into, but God was in control of all of that because He said,  Jeremiah 1: 5 KJB Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

God also sent you to earth for a purpose, He gave you your gifts, skills and talents. They all came from God. I know some situation was not favorable for you when you were born but even in that God hands has always been upon you. Try and celebrate others today, It is God who cause all of us to be here on the plant together, we are all called to shine! We all deserve to have an amazing life.

Romans 12:3-11
“For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.

If you are going to be mad at someone, it should be God. He did the picking and choosing. Just know you too can have what someone else have, not in covetousness trying to take theirs, but believing that God can bless you with your own blessing. Exodus 20:17 ESV “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor’s.”

You were purposefully created by God and so were others. Now the sad things is when we were babies some of our environments did not teach us just how beautiful and awesome we were and that we did not have to ever compare ourselves with each other because God created us different, unique and special. Here is a poem I want you to read by Marianne Williamson .

As long as you are on this earth there are going to be others that are more prettier than you, can do something better than you, have nicer things than you, have a better shape than you, smarter than you. But there is not anyone that can do you, Can’t no one out do you at being a beautiful expression of God. Celebrate who God created you to be, love yourself enough to think well of yourself and love other enough to think well of them as a child of God. So let us learn from David and Saul what to do and not do to overcome these negative emotions.

Saul’s is the one who ranked David in his kingship, when ever Saul gave David a mission he did it successfully, it was ok as long as Saul was getting all of the praise and glory, as soon as the women sang David praises, comparing David to Saul, that is when Saul started to become suspicious of David.

pexels-photo-59197

1. First, you have to purpose in your heart to guard your heart. You guard your heart by guarding your thoughts. Saul did not guard his heart, he allowed thoughts to come into his mind and he meditated on them. They produced covetousness, jealousy  envy, bitterness, strife and hatred in his heart to the point he wanted to kill David.

2. Second, when God is exalting someone even if you feel those negative emotions surfacing,  counteract those thoughts by praying nothing but good for that person. Bless the persons life every time the thoughts rises. Give that person a heartfelt worthy compliment from your heart. Even bless them financially if you can and if it requires it. The same God that created you, created them. If  it is their time to shine, the best thing you can do is support them. You do not know what that person had to go through to get to where they are today. Do not be negative towards them. Especially if this person has done nothing to you. Support people the way you want to be supported. Truth be told people always put you somewhere you are not yet, it may appear that you arrived but you are still trying to overcome feelings of can I really do this or not and looking at your own self with an critical eye. 

3. It is some people aim to make other people jealous of them which is evil as well, because the person that is operating out of that spirit have evil intentions and does not show the love of Christ, especially if you are a Christian. You can not control how a person is feeling about you but you do not need make that your aim by doing things to make them feel jealous. God said we are to pray for each other and bare one another burdens. By all means walk in peace with one another. You can deflate these emotions in a person that might be jealous of you by always showing the love of Christ to that person, never pay evil for evil and always counteracting with what is good and also pay that person a worthy compliment as well. Try talking to that person if you can, sometimes it gives the person a different view of you. I do understand it is not our job to get people to like us but as Christian it is our job to walk in love.

4. David kept his heart right even thou Saul heart was evil towards him. There will be times when you do not know why people are treating you like they are and you would be questioning, did I do something to them or offend them in any kind of way. There will be opportunities for you to talk about that person to others but do not say a word against them to anyone, you keep your heart right at all times. I know we like to be heard and not look at in a negative light and we want to tell our side of the story but hold your peace and let God fight your battle. David did not say one bad thing about Saul because he feared God and his anointed one. If you already talked about a person that you have been displaying these emotions towards or they have displayed them towards you repent now, wipe your slate clean. Get back in right standing with God. You always take the high road by smiling, and being kind and showing the love of God to that person. Pray for the person as well.

4. At one point Saul was trying to kill David but David escaped Saul. He sent David away to be on his own. David prospered in everything he had done. Saul was afraid of David because God was with David and had departed from Saul. No matter how much Saul wanted to kill him, he could not and no matter how bad Saul wanted to entrap him, He could not. Please get your heart right with people and with God. You do not want to be like Saul who envied David until the day he died. God will prosper the person you are making your enemy in your mind and you will be shut out of the promises of God.

Design Your Life: With Thought, Care and Wisdom

pexels-photo-110473-2

With where your life is right now, if you were given a white piece of paper and was told that you could create your life just by imagining it and writing it down on paper, what would you write? If you had no limits and you could get exactly what you want, what would your life look like?

I would advise you to think long and hard about how you would create your life. I would tell you to pay attention to all of the details and responsibilities that comes with having what your heart desires. I would advise you to think about your intentions and why you are asking for some of the things that you want to come into your life.

When your life is so wonderfully crafted it is done with thought, care and wisdom! This reminds me of King Solomon that the Bible speak about. I want to share this passage of scriptures with you.

2 Chronicles 1:7-12

Solomon went up to the bronze altar before the Lord in the tent of meeting and offered a thousand burnt offerings on it.

That night God appeared to Solomon and said to him, “Ask for whatever you want me to give you.”

Solomon answered God, “You have shown great kindness to David my father and have made me king in his place. Now, Lord God, let your promise to my father David be confirmed, for you have made me king over a people who are as numerous as the dust of the earth. Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?”

God said to Solomon, “Since this is your heart’s desire and you have not asked for wealth, possessions or honor, nor for the death of your enemies, and since you have not asked for a long life but for wisdom and knowledge to govern my people over whom I have made you king, therefore wisdom and knowledge will be given you. And I will also give you wealth, possessions and honor, such as no king who was before you ever had and none after you will have.”

When God presented this declaration to Solomon, I believe Solomon told God what he wanted out of his greatest need at that time. Solomon realized the responsibility he was given and perhaps it was very overwhelming for him. I would even say that Solomon probably felt inadequate. After all, Solomon was king over a people who were as numerous as the dust of the earth. Solomon said to God, who is able to govern this great people of yours.

fashion-woman-cute-airport-2

Instead of Solomon asking God for wealth and riches, vengeance  against his enemies and to let this cup pass to someone else, he decided to ask God for the wisdom and knowledge to handle it all.

I believe Solomon watched his dad when he was king, he probably was saying to himself, how is my father able to handle all of this responsibility, it is to much to bare. Solomon saw his father go to God in prayer continually and I bet his father made being in the kingship position effortless. King Solomon probably saw a lot of mistake his father made as well. Solomon gave much thought, care and wisdom to the opportunity that God presented him with. I can ask for whatever I want, and I can have it!

Solomon just asked for what he knew he needed. He asked for what would answer everything for him, something he felt like he was lacking greatly! Wisdom and knowledge to led God’s people. See Solomon was around wealth all of his life. After all, he was the son of a king. When ever the king asked for something it was given to him.

I believe we should ask for the greatest need. The thing that would solve it all for us! What are you lacking? What is it that have you feeling so inadequate? What is it that make you feel like you are not good enough? What do you need that would make you feel most successful in your life? That has to be pondered over with much thoughtfulness, care and wisdom.

In return for Solomon asking for what he really needed, which was wisdom and knowledge to led God’s people, God told Solomon, “Since this is your heart’s desire and you have not asked for wealth, possessions or honor, nor for the death of your enemies, and since you have not asked for a long life but for wisdom and knowledge to govern my people over whom I have made you king, therefore wisdom and knowledge will be given you. And I will also give you wealth, possessions and honor, such as no king who was before you ever had and none after you will have.”

Now let me ask you this question again.

With where your life is right now, if you were given a white piece of paper and was told that you could create your life just by imagining it and writing it down on paper.

What would you write? If you had no limits and you could get exactly what you want, what would your life look like?

5 Ways to Overcome Any Addiction!

woman-918616_1920

So why do I want to address this issue? Because I lived with addictions and the affects of having addictions in your life is crippling! You will not be able to enjoy a beautiful life until your additions is dealt with. So this issue has to be addressed, if you want to live the beautiful life Christ Jesus died for you to have.

Addictions rob us of our self-worth and self-esteem. It leave us feeling guilty, ashamed, living in fear, causes us to hide, and have self-hatred, it destroys our character, pride, dignity and leave us feeling unworthy and without confidence. Addictions can also cause us to loose our relationship with our family, friends and associates. It can cause us to feel defeated, weak, hopeless and like failures. Living with an addiction can make you become heartless, covetous, selfish, lustful and uncaring, addictions can destroy your life!

Now you see why I must deal with this issue. God loves you so much and his whole mission for reconciling you back to him is so that you can really experience what it means to experience true love.

The motivating force behind addictions is for you to escape from the reality of your life because of the absence of love you have for yourself and the absence of love that you want to feel with a physical human being.

The addiction gives you a temporary fix of the real feeling you want to be experiencing. It keeps you going back to that feel good feeling when ever you need it, and in return, it is making you addicted on the thing you keep going back to.

It doesn’t matter what the addiction is, it could be gambling, food, lust of all kinds like porn, sexual simulation from yourself, the opposite sex, same sex, perversion, the need to please, drugs, gossiping, lying, stealing, cheating, food, alcohol, nicotine, OCD, anorexia, bulimia, body piercing, and even tattoos. It doesn’t matter the addiction, the reason for having the addiction comes back to 2 core things, the absence of love you have for yourself and the absence of love that you want to feel with a physical human being.

I know you do not want to struggle with these addictions in your life anymore. You so badly want to be free of them, like I wanted to be set free when I struggled with addictions.

No one sees you when you cry out at night and asking God to deliver you from these strange addictions. Even feeling like you want to take your life because you feel like you will never be set free from the addiction. You are in real pain. You are feeling hopeless and discouraged because you don’t know why you can’t get set free from this addiction.

I want to share with you some tools that I’ve learned and that have helped me to get set free of addictions that wanted to destroy my life and keep me from experiencing freedom in Christ and the beautiful life that I am experiencing right now!

There is hope for you so please do not give up! Fight for your life, and fight for your future. God is on your side. But you have to want to be set free more than the addiction that you think have control over you. By the way, those addictions are just distractions that are keeping from living the life God wants you to live. One of beauty, love, joy and freedom.

girl-1064664_1920

STEPS TO GETTING FREE FROM ADDICTIONS!

1. Acknowledge that you need help. Whether you acknowledge it to yourself, or someone you trust, you have to acknowledge it to God. Just by simply stating the fact that this is a problem and it is robbing you and everyone around you of the love, life, time, purpose, freedom and joy that you should be experiencing and that they should be experiencing with you, is the first step to getting free. You tried to do it on your own, and here it is 10 years or more later and you are still struggling with this addiction. You need help. Say it right now! Lord I need you and I need help that only you can bring me. I have tried to do it on my own and have not been successful, so now I invite you in to change my heart and my mindset when it comes to this addiction. Name the addiction that you are struggling with to God. I can’t assume that everyone has a relationship with the Heavenly Father, having a relationship is key to getting set free from addictions. Pray this prayer. If you feel like you need to re-dedicate your relationship with the Heavenly Father pray this prayer..

2. Read God’s word (Holy Bible) especially on the addiction you are struggling with and find out what his word says about it. Agree with God. Whatever He says about that sin. Write it down on paper and meditate on it until it become ingrained in your thoughts. You can go online and type it in. For example, “what does the Bible says about sex.” It will give you all the scripture concerning that topic.

In order for you to defeat your opponent you have to know everything about him. Satan is your opponent, his job is to keep you in darkness and from living a life of freedom and true fulfillment in Christ Jesus. You have to replace your defeated thoughts with new truths. Right down how God’s says you are to behave concerning that addiction. Now believe what God believes about it.

There are 3 major topics you are going to have to study concerning your opponent.

*Who is satan?

*What are satan tactics?

*How does satan tempt man and your way of escape?

happy-woman-1209728_1920-2

3. Have a I am not giving up until I see my breakthrough attitude.   Make up in your mind that you are going to be delivered from this no matter what! And that you are not giving up until you are free! Make up in your mind that you are no longer going to be defeated in this addiction. Even if you fall back from time to time until you can walk in your freedom, you must get back up with a winners attitude. The Bible says in Proverbs 24:16 (KJV For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief. Here is an inspirational song to encourage you on your journey to freedom. We fall Down and Get Back Up Again by Donnie McCurklin.

Now, disregard the verses of the song that says a Saint is just a sinner who fell down. Once you accept Christ as your savior, God no longer calls you a sinner but calls you righteous. Calling yourself sinner is identifying with what you once were before you gave your life to Christ. Now that you accepted Christ as your Savior, though you my may sin in a certain area, don’t mean you are a sinner who is practicing sinning with no consciousness. If you shall fall back in old behavior patterns just quote the scripture in 1John 1:9 (NIV) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

4. Change your confession . speak it out of your mouth that you are delivered from the addiction. No longer agree with the negative chatter that is said by you, your thoughts or by other people. Do not claim to be a recovering nothing! You speak out of your mouth I am delivered from this addiction, I am set free from this addiction once and for all!  The bible says in Proverbs 18:21(KJV) Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. It also says in Proverbs 18:20 (KJV) A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.”

These scriptures are saying whatever you believe and speak out of your mouth is going to form your life. You will get exactly what you truly believe and speak about your life.

5. Guard your thoughts, eyes and your ears!  Our senses is how we experience our world and are the most sensitive parts of our body that incite stimuli. Your thoughts evoke emotions and feelings, so it is important that you are thinking the right things and learning new truths so your mind can think on scriptures and positive confessions and evoke good emotions in your body. You have to guard your gates, especially eyes and ears. The Bible say in Matthew 5:27-28(NKJV) “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 

Why did God say when a man or woman look to lust after another human being, they are not married to, that they already committed the act of adultery in their heart? Because temptation starts the very moment you see, hear and then you linger over the thoughts of what ever is tempting you.

You saw the married man once, then you look again and then you linger and then you start thinking about him. You have now entered in an adulterous relationship with that married man, that belongs to another woman, in your heart! Before you ever committed any sin in your life you have committed in your heart already. Listen to what this scripture teaches in

James 1:13-15 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when by his own evil desires he is lured away and enticed. Then after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is fully grown, it gives birth to death.… 

So it is important to stop the temptation before it enters. 2 Corinthians 10:5 (KJV) reads casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Don’t think you are so strong that it can not happen to you. This next scripture lets us know we can fall into temptation if we are not careful, and God always provides us with away of escape. You have to change the things you watch on TV, the friends you hang around, get rid of the computer if it is creating temptation for you. You have to move to a new location, stop talking on the telephone, when you see temptation turn the other way and you get out of there fast! Do not look twice! Throw away all of the things that is attached to that addiction.

1 Corinthians 10:12-14 So the one who thinks he is standing firm should be careful not to fall. No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide an escape, so that you can stand up under it. Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry.…

Go on a fast! One day Jesus disciples was trying to cast out an evil spirit out of a boy but they could not. They asked Jesus why they could not cast the evil spirit out. He said in Mark 9:28:  After Jesus had gone into the house, His disciples asked Him privately, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?” Jesus answered, “This kind cannot come out, except by prayer and fasting.”

Fast and pray! I received healing from a spirit of miscarriages on a 40 day fast. Read the Bible to find out the correct way to fast. Some of you need to fast food, social media, telephone, TV, secular media, being around certain environments and people until you are strong enough to avoid temptation. I still do not watch some rated PG 13 movies and I do not watch rated R movies at all. How bad do you want to be set free from that addiction? You have to do what it takes to be set free of addictions and strongholds.

5 Things You Should Do When You feel Like Everything Is Falling Apart!

 “5 Things You Should Do When You Feel Like Everything Is Falling Apart.”

What things are consuming your thoughts? What are you so concerned about? Well Guess what? My God cares about it as well, you need answers and He is here to give them to you. I hear people saying God don’t speak to me. God speaks all the time but are you ready to listen to who God uses and what he uses to get the answers to you.

I woke up to this message, I learned to stop questioning myself and learn to trust the voice that is speaking. After all, I am just a vessel that has allowed the Heavenly Father to speak through me, rather the message is for me or for you, I am going to capture the conversation.

So what was God revealing to me upon waking up this morning?

bible-scripture-gospel-testament-52513.jpeg

1. When your world is changing around you, stay connected to God.

There is a tendency to disconnect from God and try to figure things out on our own. The urgency of the matter will try and get us to move to fast and react now. Sometimes out of haste we make the wrong move, and out of desperation we jump the gun to fast.

Seasons change, businesses change, locations change, your kids are changing, your marriage is changing, the way our world works is changing, your vision has changed and if we are not careful or in tune to what is going on around us, we would be wondering to ourselves what is going on, I never had to work so hard at trying to keep this thing going. It was once prosperous, we use to be so connected to each other, what happen to my babies, they use to tell me everything, I never had to work this hard to keep this business afloat.

We have to keep up with the times, our world is evolving. What was detestable to wear in public years ago, is now the new normal. Temptation is different now, unlike David in the Bible who stumble upon temptation when he saw Bathsheba taking a shower, now temptation comes to your front door and right in your face.

Social Media is the new game changer, and if you are in any kind of business, it is advantageous that you have some kind of on going social media presence. I know we want things to stay the same, but everything is changing. The way we relate to our kids have changed, you got to be the parent that is in the know, it is all kinds of influences that are effecting the way our kids are behaving. They speak in codes and ebonics, and the messages are hidden in the codes. Parents, we must be able to recognize the new language amongst our kids, so we can understand what our children are into.

The way you’ve done business has changed, your old tactics is not working anymore, it is time for you to find out where your customers are and what do they need from you. You should be contemplating on how you can better serve your customers? How can you make your customer feel important, and what will set you apart from all of the rest.

We are in the age of information, where you practically can do everything from the comfort of your own home. You can shop online, pay your bills on line and even go to church on line.

Churches are making it easy for people to connect with them and fellowship with their congregation, even if you live in a different state, town or city. You can connect with them and be in the same service with them via live streaming.

So why should your customers leave the comfort of their own home to patronize you, when there are so many options available to them. What experience would you give them to make it worth their while? I know some of the topics I am talking about sounds ridiculous, but while you are trying to figure it out, the world is changing.

I remember my husband and I went into this movie theater where we live. This movie theater use to be real popular. It was located in a high price neighborhood, so we just assumed that it is going to be a more mature crowd, but when my husband and I sat down, we realized that we were sitting amongst a new generation of young people and for once in my life, I felt like I was stuck in time. Everything about these young people were different, the way they looked, their mannerism was different, the way they spoke and the way they dressed were different. We did not fit in at all, my husband and I agreed that this was going to be the last time we visit that movie theater. One day we drove pass the movie theater, and they were upgrading it and made it into a upscale movie theater. We have been back several times since the new grand opening. Their clientele has changed. Now young and mature come there to watch movies..

How are you going to stay current when everything around you is changing? I know you use to score big with the old system but now it is not working with the new vision. Your hustle has to be different. You are going to have to find new ways of doing thing.

2. Embrace the change that is around you. 

How can you embrace change when it seems like things are falling apart around you. When you feel like you are falling apart inside. You do not have to accept the change around you but you are going to have to embrace it. Because whether the Bible agrees with it or not and whether you agree with it or not, it is changing or it has changed. The sooner you embrace it (I am not saying agree with sin) and find new ways of dealing with it, then you can find a solution that will make it work for the good of all that is involved.

Sometimes we just do not want to accept the way things are and we do not have to. But if you and I embrace the fact that it is what it is, then we can let go of the attachment that we placed on ourselves, that it is our job to fix it or fix someone. When we let go of all of the judgement, let go of trying to hold it all together, let go of the pride, let go of us trying to play God.

If we can let go and let God judge the situation, and we just learn to love and trust that what ever happens in this situation will work out for our highest good because we have surrendered and gave it to God, then God can step in and show us what needs to be done next.

3. Stay calm.

I think the mind goes into over drive trying to find solutions to why our world has changed and trying to find the pieces to put it all back together like it once was. You can really work yourself up into panic mode if you are not careful with your thoughts. I know it feels like you are not doing nothing to solve the problem if you just sit and be quiet. But being still is probably what you need to do so you can hear God speaking to you.

When you feel anxious, and like anxiety is trying to rise up on the inside of you, go into your quiet place and breathe. What is happening to you is that your thoughts are out of control. You have to bring your thoughts back into captivity. You do that by calming the mind through meditation and reading the scriptures. Psalm 37:25  says, I have been young, and now I am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. If God said it, you better believe he is a man of his word!

girl-praying-hands-eyelashes-41942

4. Pray

Now that you have cleared the cutter in your mind, fill it up with talking to God about it. He is the only one who can show you what you need to do. Prayer changes things. Cry your heart out to God, be honest with him, real honest because it says in Psalms 66:18 – If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear [me]:. He knows everything about you anyway.

You are in a temporary season, make sure that you forgive anybody that have hurt you, betrayed you, offended you or abandoned you. Clear your heart of any anger, bitterness, malice and strife. In order for you to move forward and get your prayers answered,  you have to have a clean heart before God. God cannot forgive you until you have forgiven others. Matthew 5:14-15 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive yours.

Ask God questions, any questions you need answered. Let God know your fears and your struggles. Ask him for help! The Bible says in Psalm 46:1 (KJV) God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. I have included a link to scriptures that tells you that God will answer your prayers. Meditate on those scriptures. God wants to help you reestablish your relationships, your business, your finances, your self-esteem and anything else you need establishing. Being thankful and grateful goes along way, in fact God says, Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

5. Strategize!

Ask God to show you your dream team? And surround  yourself with others who can help you get to the next level. If you are the only knowledgeable one in the room and everyone is listening to you, then who are you listening to. This is new territory for you. You have to swallow your pride and ask for help! Right now you are losing battleground. You have to get around people who defeated Goliath already. You need to loose your girlfriends who are not married and are trying to tell you how to leave your husband. You need to get around some seasoned woman who got down in the trenches and fought to keep the other woman from stealing her husband. You need to find your Naomi! You need to find your real prayer warriors! Ask God whose heart you can trust. Just because people around appear to be faithful doesn’t mean they are.

I love listening to Oprah tell her story about when she brought her own network. She said, this was new territory for her. Oprah was use to people showing up for her on her syndicated network. After 25 years of successful television, Oprah decided that she would start her own network. She just assumed with so many followers and loyal fans, they would  just follow her to her own network. She said what she didn’t realize is, everybody did not have cable and everybody wasn’t getting cable just to watch her. Oprah stated that in that season of her life, she was just getting back what she was feeling about herself on the inside. Which was shame, fear, she didn’t know what she was doing and feeling like she was failing. People were saying all kinds of cruel things about her and putting out negative energy about how her network was doing bad and how she is not going to make it, but in order for her  Oprah to change her current situation she had to change her inner dialogue.

The moment she started to change the story she was telling herself, in that moment she could find a solution to save her network. She had to shut down from listening to the naysayers both outwardly and inwardly. She had to get a different strategy. She had to ask for help. This was a very humbling experience for Oprah. She spoke on platforms I know she didn’t want to speak on. She partner with people that she didn’t think she would ever partner with. She use the power of youtube and the internet so people could continue to connect with her without paying for cable. She went on a Life Class Tour, she did things that she did not want to do, but she had to make up her mind that she was going to sink or swim. She chose to swim. I am sure Oprah felt vulnerable. She was use to people fighting to get on her show, now she was having to ask people to buy into her network. Oprah became a game changer and so can you. You have to get a plan in place and see it through. It might be uncomfortable but you can do it! Don’t give up! Fight for your life, family and your destiny!

Find Your Purpose and Allow Nothing to Stop You From Living it!

pexels-photo-2.jpeg

You are God’s handy work created for good works. Go ahead and make your mark on the world. Your purpose is defined in the things that you are gifted in, passionate about and what you can go for hours doing without getting tired, it fuels you. Your purpose can also be in the things that you have righteous anger towards. A cause you will stand up and fight for. Your purpose can also be in the struggles and in the things you had to overcome, now you want to show others how thy can overcome it as well.

What skills and abilities others compliment you on the most? That can also be a key indicator to your purpose. You really need to enjoy what you are doing at least 95 percent of the time you are doing it. I say 5 percent is putting in the leg work to see your purpose and dreams fulfilled. Yes, I think part of pursuing your purpose is going to require some discomfort. You will probably have to learn new skills to see your dreams and purpose come to pass.

I never liked grammar when I was in high school. In fact, I was a D student when it came to learning the english language. I never understood the rules. But God called me to be a writer, author and a life coach which is a teacher. If I would have known God would use me to write books, blog posts and coaching programs, I would have paid more attention in my grammar class. I might have been a D student in high school but now I love learning the English language. I still break some rules when it comes to writing, but I will not allow it to stop or hinder me from fulfilling my calling in life. My calling is to partner with God to see his daughters get set free from bondages of all kinds and to receive real breakthroughs to a better life, a bigger dream and a balanced home.

Thank God for spell check, grammarly.com, Microsoft Word, Dictionary.com and others that are gifted and skilled at editing. These tools are an asset to me fulfilling my purpose. God can send you what you need to fulfill your purpose. Never allow lack of money, lack of skills and lack of knowledge, stop you from walking into a greater and better future for yourself. Do not allow your age to stop you either. You are never to old to learn. If fact, if you want to live a full vibrant life, you have to become a life long learner. Do not allow social media and internet to intimidate you. You just use them for the good.

 

office-620817_1920

New information is consistently being updated to the internet, and the latest information  might be the information you need to know to fulfilling your purpose. If your purpose do not require you to have a degree, you can teach yourself a lot of things just by going on the internet, to the library and watching youtube videos.

If you are an empty nester or a single lady without children, now is the time to really find out what God has called you to do in this season of your life. You have nothing but time on your hands. The world is at your finger tips. Your best days are still ahead of you. God wants you to fall in love with his word(Bible) so you can get instruction on the next phase of your life!

This is not a time for you fold your hands and feel depressed and lonely. Fall back in love with living, fall back in love with your husband if you are married empty nester. Fall back in love with making an impact on the people God has called you to help with your wealth of knowledge. Now is the time to really live passionately, doing the things you absolutely enjoy doing. Clear your heart of all bitterness, unforgiveness and inner turmoil. Make your mark on the world, leave your imprint for God. Allow yourself to be a vessel to be used of him.

You were created to bring forth Gods glory, get into God’s presence by playing lovely praise music  and when you are in his presence, ask God to show you what is your next move. Ask God to show you how can you help others. Ask God to show how you can create a financially rewarding income doing what you are absolutely passion about. Your purpose can entail 1 to 4 things He shows you, and when He shows it to you, act on it. Urban praise and worship. I have included 2 different kinds of praise music you can listen to. Pick the one you like and get into God’s  presence. Ask God questions that will take you into the next season of your life.

I would love to here from you. I have some really awesome books that I wrote that can help you on your discovery to a better life. www.noboundariesbtc.com click the PRODUCT TAB.

8 Ways to Slay Your Giants!

sport-match-football-giantsHave you ever went through a struggle and didn’t know how you would overcome it? Things were being thrown at you, that you had never experienced before.

Ladies, there are going to be situations in your life, that is going to require you to give your full attention to or else it will remain the same because you fail to stand up and speak against it.

I do understand, sometimes you do not want to face your giants because of fear of rocking the boat. Meaning, you do not want to be the elephant in the room. You do not want to be the one that disrupts the soil or Satan’s agenda.

But what I realize in this life is, if you want peace in your life, sometimes it will require you to stand up for your God given promises. I would love to just fight everything in prayer, but there are times when God would require you to face the very thing that you wish could just go away in prayer.

Sometimes, God is working some stuff out of you and is teaching you to be bold as a lion and to face the giants that stands before you. Things are being worked out of you like intimidation, fear and timidity. God is building you up on the inside and is replacing that fear with boldness and courage. If you sit back and allow things to happen in your life, you never have peace in that particular situation.

There are blessings, dreams, rights and covenants that have been given to you to possess and enjoy in this life, but you must cover them in prayer. Just because your blessings were freely given to you doesn’t mean that forces of darkness wants to see you enjoy your God given blessings.

You can not just sit back and allow your blessings to be without watering of the word of God. You have to give your full love, time and attention to them. You must learn to wage war on the spirit of darkness, then have the boldness, and courage to stand up and speak to those spirits.

 

lion-wildcat-safari-africa-47036.jpeg

As a believer of God’s word, you can not live as one who is clueless and in sleep mode to the things that are around you. Your enemy Satan, would love nothing more than to catch you off guard so he can come in and scatter your life. I love what the Bible has to say about this.

1 Peter 5:8-14 reads, “Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up. You’re not the only ones plunged into these hard times. It’s the same with Christians all over the world. So keep a firm grip on the faith. The suffering won’t last forever. It won’t be long before this generous God who has great plans for us in Christ – eternal and glorious plans they are! – will have you put together and on your feet for good. He gets the last word; yes, he does:”.

Sleeping in your life to me is an absence of a communion and fellowship with God, which is prayer, meditation and reading of God’s word(Bible). When you have those 3 components in your life, you can pick up in the spiritual realm when there is foul play in your atmosphere or when the spirit of darkness wants to gain access to your promises.

Ladies, I am going to need for you to be alert and awake! Your dreams, your purpose, your marriage and your family lineage are at stake.

prayer-close

I have seen so many things that have been snatch away from people all because they were sleeping in their life. I am reminded of a story in the Bible about a boy name David. He could have lost it all if he were sleeping in his life. He could have lost it all if he was not connected to God through prayer and fellowship. He would have lost it all if he lived his life in fear and intimidation. For time sake, I will give a very short version of the story. Read the full story in 1 Samuel 17, in the Holy Bible. David and Goliath

David, a handsome boy from Israel stood up to face the giant Goliath from the Philistines. Goliath was very huge, very intimidating and has never lost a fight. But none of the soldiers from the Israelite camp wanted to fight the giant, not even the king who’s name was Saul. They feared that Goliath would destroy them.

By the way, the Israelites were God chosen people. They had God on their side. All they had to do was fear not, and put their trust in him. In the past, God worked miracles, after miracles for them.

David was brave enough to face this giant because he did put his trust in God almighty. David was a shepherd boy. While looking after the sheep, he protected them from their predators. David killed a lion and ran off a bear with his sling shot. King Saul offered a reward to the man who kills Goliath. The reward would be wealth, his daughter in marriage, and exempt his family from taxes in Israel. When David heard this good news, he knew this could change the course of his life and his family. 

Everyone around him, especially his brothers, thought he could not do it because they looked at his size and statue. King Saul doubted him as well. The Giant tried to intimidate him and cause him to run and draw back. David was not in fear. David knew what his God could do if he be willing to stand up to this Giant. Goliath made all kinds of threats to David. But David boldly proclaimed his God given rights to Goliath. David knew if he did not fight Goliath, it could effect the whole generation of the Israelites, It could have wiped out his lineage, purpose and promises. 

David was fighting for his marriage, his finances, his purpose and his lineage. He was not going down without a fight. Others around him were afraid and was trying to evoke their fears on  the inside of him but he was not having it! Saul even gave David armor to protect himself from the giant but the armor did not fit him. David told Saul, “this armor do not fit me.” David said, God has given me my own weapons to defeat this Giant. David Won! He defeated, destroyed and killed his Giant. Now you go and do the same to to your giants.

Here are the 8 ways David slayed his giant?

  1. Relationship and communion with God (prayer)
  2. Knowing his covenant rights (confessions of God’s word, Bible)
  3. Confidence and trust in the living God
  4. Purpose or a reason to fight his giant
  5. Courage to stand up to the giant
  6. Boldness to face the giant
  7. A voice to speak back to the giant
  8. David did have a natural tool to wipe this giant out for good(sling shot). Now, I am not advocating using physical force, but there are times when you will have shut the door on somethings, remove yourself from some situations and disconnect from some places and people. 

I would love to hear from you. Please feel free to leave a comment and subscribe to my blog!
