Blessing Prayer

Heavenly Father, I (we) come to You now in the Name of my (our) Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.

Lord Jesus Christ, I (we) ask You, according to John 14:13- 14, to cover me (us) with Your anointing, glory, and tangible Presence, give me (us) a fresh new release and flow in my (our) inner man with rivers of living waters springing up forth abundantly with Life abundant, fill me (us) to over-flowing with Your favor, compassion and love, Your wisdom and understanding. Anoint me (us) to hear Your Voice not that of a stranger, cause me (us) to clearly discern Your Voice over that of a strange voice. Give me (us) Your eyes to see spiritually, and a heart to understand and be led by Your Holy Spirit, clearly, help me to be bold, confident and be obedient, to do Your will. Fill me (us) with Your gifts, anointings, and blessings and all else You have for me (us).

 Lord Jesus Christ I (we) ask You according to John 14:13 – 14 to anoint me (us). Pour out Your Anointing on me (us). (Apply the anointing oil to the forehead now.) I (we) receive Your Anointing in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Lord Jesus Christ, I (we) ask You, according to John 14:13 – 14, to do all these things and let Your love so brightly shine through me 12 (us) into others and as an act of worship to You, in Jesus’ Name, to God be the Glory. Amen!

Forgiveness Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I forgive anyone who has ever wronged me or hurt me
or cursed me or lied to me or prayed witchcraft prayers over me and I
bless them in the Name of Jesus Christ. Heavenly Father I ask You to
forgive me for any unforgiveness, any bitterness, any anger, any strife,
any animosity, and any resentment that I have in my heart toward anyone
at this time, in Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

O the SHADE

Do you want to know what I love about the shade, in the shade you are protected from the heat of the day.

As an adult we go through so much with relationships, children, work and dreams we need the shade every now and then.  Standing in heat, no matter how beautiful the day, can be damaging. Always being on social media, constantly working, committing yourself to everything on the social calendar can be exhausting. So, take a moment to be in the shade!

Take time to unplug and be fed spiritually, emotionally, find out who you are without all beams pointing toward you.

A Real Relationship

I love that in this day and age (for the most part) the Christian message is relationship with God not acts or religion…. relationship.

In this episode of Iyanla Fix My Life we see a gospel artist who has covered her addiction with her abilities. We know how easy that is, as a society we become master shape shifters when it comes to exposing our weakness. Instead of presenting ourselves with our weaknesses we promote our talent and hope the world never sees our opposing habits.

What’s beautiful about God is that He wants all of us both good and bad. The bible says in Mathew 11:28 that we should come to Him weary and burdened so that we can receive rest. It is not Gods intention for us to work so hard to hide our imperfections. Instead he offers shelter and solace in replace of our pain.

Check out this clip and understand that every one of us has an issue in which we need to turn over to God.  Take yourself off the stage and walk into the welcoming arms of God today.

Monday Meditation

What experience plagues your thoughts?

We all are on a journey going toward purpose and passion but sometimes we are distracted by bills, responsibilities and urgent matters.

Mediation Monday is a time where you make a conscious effort to close the “to-dos” of the day and grab a handful of peace.

Take a moment and think about the one problem that runs laps around your thoughts. Is it a bill? Are you concerned with a child, maybe a relationship?  Take a moment and finish this sentence:

I am afraid that _____________________________________________ will happen if I cannot fix this issue.

__________________________________________ what I can do about it.

____________________________________________how long it would take to get better.

___________________________________________ who must I become if this doesn’t get better.

You have just laid out the complete scenario. Now take a moment and breathe. You no longer have a reason to replay the issue or concern because you have written out the fear and tangible solution.

Find a quiet place and take 5 long breaths.

When this issue comes back into your thoughts, tell yourself that you have already thought through the situation and dismiss the situation from your thoughts. Choose peace.

Starting a business is like having a child.

In the same way that a mother gains new life as they learn of pregnancy. An entrepreneur also gains a new wind creating a business.

Personally, I have opened an early learning academy and let me be the one to tell you this has been no easy journey!! You can plan for years but there is nothing like owning your own business, you know with rent… employees… and most of all customers. Turning my sign from closed to open was scary because I didn’t know what I would be like as the owner of my baby dream.

I had a similar feeling when the doctor looked at me and said that I could go home with my child. While I was excited to go home, I was scared! I wanted to give my child every great, beautiful, and loving thing worthy of the majestic life I was trusted with.  I wanted to be knowledgeable, caring, and incredible as a parent, and that same intention is how I opened the early learning academy. I wanted to present my community with the best, owning a business at the age of 32 I became the parent of a fulfilled dream, but opening my business even being a parent with intention was difficult and pleasant.

Join me on my owners journey I will share the truth about living your dream. I am a mother, wife, sister, friend…. And entrepreneur.

1…2….3… Breathe

The best thing we can do to arm ourselves through this life is to pray! This prayer is one that is well known and appropriately labeled the standard for prayers. God gave you and I a script to break the chains of this world off our life. Today I challenge you to take the time and read the words, pray with intention today.

“Our Father Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name,
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done.
On earth as it is in heaven,
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one,
For thine is the kingdom,
And the power, and the glory,
Forever, Amen”!

Let Loose

Am I the only one on this planet that must use extreme self-control when their song comes on? Currently I am in school and from time to time I must walk across campus, so of course, I am listening to music while doing so. When the music starts, I feel as if I have injected energy into my veins! It takes everything in me to just walk… I want to strut, flail my hands, stomp and more. Then, when my favorite line comes, I want to sing it as loud as I can, but… that is not what’s acceptable so what do I do????

I just walk, but just know, if you see me with headphones on, I am internally breaking it down!

Life is meant to be enjoyed. I know this topic is silly but it’s honest. We can spend so much of our life living “conveniently” or “properly” let us not forget how to dance too. I challenge you today to have a moment that breaks barriers. Have fun, laugh at yourself, dance and be free to do what makes you happy! Selah

Monday Meditation

Hello ladies and gentlemen it’s that time again… Time to meditate. For today’s issue I want to discuss comfort tea. One of my favorite things to do when it’s time to slow down is to drink tea because it’s hot in nature it makes you take your time and sip.

The craziness of the day can cause stress headaches and even body pains. Take a moment to to sit and sip. Choose to think about at least one positive thing that has happened today. Being grateful will ignite a peace and joy to your day that wasn’t there before. Selah.

Meditation Monday

This month we are discussing peaceful sleep. Did you know that sleep is just as important as working out and eating healthy?

When it comes to sleep if you are not getting adequate time or can’t seem to settle your mind down long enough to rest than you may need to adjust your sleeping habits. Below is a list of tips to help you gain the rest you deserve.

  • Use your bed only for sleep and sex. 
  • Make your bedroom quiet and relaxing. Keep the room at a comfortable, cool temperature. 
  • Limit exposure to bright light in the evenings.
  • Turn off electronic devices at least 30 minutes before bedtime.
