Forgiveness Friday:

Hello Everyone, here is a prayer for forgiveness:

Heavenly Father, I (we) come to You now in the Name of my (our) Lord
and Savior Christ Jesus, I (we) make a joyful shout to You, we come
before Your Presence with singing, and we enter into Your gates with
thanksgiving, and into Your courts with praise. Lord throughout this
prayer and throughout this day I pray for myself(ourselves) and the
following people _____, _____, _____, and _____ .
Forgiveness of Sin Prayer
Heavenly Father qwshave mercy on me/us, our children and grandchildren, our friends and
family and the people we have prayed for and according to Your loving
kindness, and according to the multitude of Your tender mercies blot out
all our transgressions, and wash us totally from our iniquities and cleanse
us from our sins. For we do acknowledge our transgressions and our sin
is always before us, and against You and You only have we sinned and
have done this evil in Your sight. That You may be found just when You
speak and blameless when You judge. Behold we were brought forth in
iniquity and in sin our mother conceived us, and behold You desire truth
in the inward parts, in the hidden parts You will make us to know
wisdom. Purge us with hyssop, we shall be clean, wash us and we shall
be whiter than snow. Make us to know Your joy and gladness that the
bones that You have broken may rejoice and hide Your face from our
sins, and blot out our iniquities. Create in us a clean heart O God and
renew a steadfast spirit within us and do not cast us away from Your
Presence. Please do not take Your Holy Spirit from us but restore to us
the joy of Your salvation and uphold us by Your generous Spirit that we
would be able to teach transgressors Your ways and sinners can be
converted to You. Deliver us from any blood guiltiness, God of our
salvation, and our tongue shall sing aloud of Your Righteousness. Lord
open our lips and our mouths shall show forth Your praise. For God does
not desire sacrifice or else we would give it, God doesn’t delight in burnt
offerings. The acceptable sacrifices of God are a humble spirit, a broken
and contrite heart. These God will not despise. Do good in Your good
pleasure to Zion. Build thou the walls of Jerusalem, then Lord, You will
be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness. I (we) humble myself
(ourselves) in complete repentance before You. I/we ask you to forgive
me (or us) for any unforgiveness, unrighteousness, fornication,
wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, envy, murder, deceit, hatred,
whispering, backbiting, despitefulness, pride, boasters, inventors of evil
things, disobedient to parents, being without understanding, covenant
breaker(s), without natural affection, homosexuality, unmerciful,
injustices, whoredoms, bitterness, evil, evil reasoning, murmuring, doing
evil, with no covenant, no love and no peace, argumentative and causing
strife. Oh Lord, I/We ask You to forgive each of us of our sins,
transgressions, iniquities, trespasses, unforgiveness, approving the sins of
others, and I/we ask You to cover those sins with the blood of Jesus
Christ. Father I/we truly repent for our sins

The truth about Success:

I love that in this day and age people who have received success tells the truth about how many times they have failed. Many success stories talk about homelessness, displacement, and hunger that inspired them to keep going.

My truth when it comes to success is that I had to develop the audacity to work harder than anyone around me.

I have opened a non- profit and an Early Learning Academy. To do so, I had to stay up when others were sleeping, read, research, go back to school, ask questions, and be willing to be mentored. The road is not easy, but the passion for the work had to exceed my need for comfort. I had to be ok with not being average and standing apart. But most of all I had to acknowledge the God that is inside of me.

The same God that lives in me also lives in you. Choose today to stand apart, work hard, and sacrifice for the passion God placed inside of you!

Selah.

Tell the Truth:

Have you ever been in a situation that you know is wrong and you go along just to get along? Or am I the only one?????
In this season we are taking hold of our independence, but this independence, honesty and need to be forthright must start with ourselves.
If someone is gossiping, tell them to be quiet, or make it clear that you are not comfortable with them gossiping around you.
If you are tired of having just enough money at the end of the month, make time to sit down and create a budget.
If you have not been kind to someone, walk up to the person and apologize.
This time of acceptance is not just for everyone around you in this world, it’s for you. You must stand up for what is true in you.
You never know, the courage you express on your job, at school, on in your relationship may inspire people around you to stand in their truth as well… and where there is truth, there is freedom.
Selah.

Do what’s right…. The first time

When you don’t do what your supposed to do there are consequences. I have decided to go back to school because there is much to learn in the field of psychology. In order to give the most accurate information, I had to go back to school!

Now, in this journey I have learned to do the right thing the first time! If an assignment is due, I have a better score when I take my time and read through the assignments before giving an answer.

I’m writing this post today because God put on my spirit that many of us choose to do the right thing at the wrong time. Our life is one big assignment… instead of taking the time to develop, research, then respond; we are giving what ever answer comes to the top of our head, hoping that in the end it’s enough to suffice.

Let today be the day you choose to give your best the first time. If you’re on a job give your all! Don’t become lazy and compliant because it’s not your dream, God has you there for a reason so be effective. If you’re in a relationship be attentive and respectful, if you’re a parent, sacrifice for your personal time for time with your child.

Take time and develop yourself so that when you present yourself to the world you give your best answer.

Selah.

Daily Warfare Prayer

Daily Warfare Prayer (Out Loud)
Heavenly Father, I come to You in the Name of my Lord and Savior,
Jesus Christ. I come to You with praise and thanksgiving, in worship, in

my heart at any time. ____, ___, ___. Heavenly Father, I ask You to
forgive me, every member of my family, every partner of Christian Word
Ministries, every member of their families, from all sins known or

clean with the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ. Lord Jesus, I ask You to
destroy any witchcraft prayers, charismatic witchcraft prayers, psychic
prayers, side effects, stings, and influences of any witchcraft prayers that

effects, side affects, adverse effects that have been placed on any of us. I

against us. I ask You to cause Your anointing to break and destroy the
yoke of every bondage that is over us. Lord Jesus, I ask You to pull
down and destroy all demonic strongholds, vain imaginations, and every
high thought that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bring
every thought captive to the obedience of Christ according to 2nd
Corinthians 10:3-6, in each of us. Lord Jesus I(we) ask You to destroy
every demonic spell, witchcraft spell, voodoo spell, black magic spell,
white magic spell and all their side effects in each of us. Lord Jesus, I
ask you to destroy every false prophecy that has ever been prophesied
over us. Lord Jesus I ask You to do all these things according to John

Father, I ask You to give us and every person that I pray for today; total

one of us in You, Your Word and all that You are, according to John

The Battle:

Every person on this earth has two sides of themselves. On the one hand, we have the part of us that strives to do good, and on the other, we have what is referred to as the “flesh” the impatient prideful and selfish side that demands to be seen and heard at all costs.

No matter where you are in your relationship with Christ you will have to continually battle both sides. There is no service, or magic pill you can take that will make you 100% one side and not the other.  So as Christians we must learn how to sacrifice our flesh daily.

Acknowledge the pride, selfishness or sin lying within our flesh so that God can come in and transform our imperfections.

Everyone must acknowledge and humble ourselves as people who need forgives. And that my friend is how we win the battle of life.

Rest Less

I for one am an advocate for resting, taking time for yourself, and appreciating life as it happens around you; but what I can not condone is the lackadaisical way some people choose to approach their life.

If you are a Christian, who wants to spend more time with God than you must become a person who can turn off the television or decline an outing if it conflicts with your time with God. If you are an entrepreneur, then you have to learn how to become a person who manages both time and people well. This means you may not have an hour lunch like your employees because you have things to handle on the job site.

I know this is not a popular concept, but it is the truth! If you want to succeed in life, you have to rest less. Stop looking for the vacation in life and dedicate yourself to work at hand. You WILL miss some of the “fun” things happening but guess what, when you look up later in life you will have built the empire of your dreams. God has not only given you a vision, but the audacity to see your vision through until the end. Selah

Michelle Williams: The strength to speak up.

Here on good girl issues we advocate mental health. A courageous woman named Michelle Williams has came forward as an spokesperson for mental health awareness. She had been battling depression for most of her life and she shares her story here.

People of God do not let mental illness separate you from the love of God! Battling an illness is not a sin nor a crime. The devil wants you to be quite but now is the time to raise your voice. Do not fight alone. Reach out to someone who can help. God loves you and desires for your life to be blessed and prosperous. Check out this champion, she has made it through and so can you! Selah

Say Hello to Today

Hello, today:

There is a motto that I say to myself at the beginning of the day. “Hello today, what happened yesterday is gone and what will happen today is up to me; so, choose peace, choose love, and choose excellence.” When you choose peace, you are choosing not to get involved in the negative energy of the day. When you choose to love you forgive quickly and look for a way to bless the people around you. When you choose excellence, you make the decision to go above and beyond, to give the day you’re very best, not just the minimum. So, if you haven’t already… say hello to today and be blessed! Selah
