One of the greatest challenges in being “great” is developing patients. Patients to keep learning, keep pressing, keep smiling, keep being kind, to keep being hopeful even when things look to be going opposite of your way. Patients is one of the fruits of the spirit which is love.

True love says that “For God so loved the world that He gave” so giving is the personality of God and the personality of love. Why is it important to know this??? Because if you are in a relationship with God, then you must understand that love makes you wait because love perfects your gift before giving it to you.

For example, I can run to Walgreens and pick up any card and any gift, put it in a random bag and give my husband the present.  But… because I love him, I go to the store look for a gift that would make him smile. I take the time to go up and down each aisle until I find something he would love and enjoy. Lastly, I choose a bag to wrap this gift into something that makes the present shine.  If I love my husband enough to do all of this, how much do you think God loves us.

Yes, God wants us to have what we need and desire, but He doesn’t want to give it to us haphazardly. God takes His time, chooses the best gift with the best wrapping delivered in the best time so that it’s not only appreciated but cherished. Today, exercise patients and watch God bless you with a gift greater than you ever expected.

A true Father takes the lead

I love my Bishop Holcomb… He just knocked me out of my see with a revelation. So many times in our relationship with God, as Christians, we tend to think that life in Christ means a life without problems when that is not true. Life with Christ means that no matter what situation you are in, God is able to help you!

Bad things happen to all people, but because you have God, you have tools such as increased PEACE and His POWER so that you can handle the bad!!!!

How????

Like this- When you have an understanding that God is greater than your trial or tribulations, you then understand that in God everything will be alright. God extend His power to us so that when trials come, we can rest easy because as Christians we understand the victory is already ours. Now it’s time for you to tell yourself who wins … the enemy which may also be called your situation, or God?  When you choose God, you are taking your hands off of the situation and allowing God to lead. The beauty of God leading is that He is a guaranteed win, there is not a failure in God… Don’t believe me, read your word.

You can go ahead and shout now… that’s life changing information!

Home alone but not lonely #stayathomemom

I am a stay at home mom and one of the reasons why I enjoy what I do, is because I have connected my love with my mission. I love my kids, and by trade, I am a Veteran who was a medical administrator. To satisfy a desire, I must organize and well… administer… I found lessons and crafts that teach my children but also challenged me to use my gift. I found joy in organizing the calendar, researching what they should be learning at what stage, and things of that nature. If you are an artist, find projects that allow your children to tap into the creativity you have given them. Look for ways to connect to your passion to your children so that their world can expand and in turn; you will not feel like you are trapped in a box!

Devil you Lose! #victory

I have written for years about how to live a fulfilled and prosperous life. Speaking about how to control your thoughts, your actions, and your words.  I am so adamant about the love of God because I have seen Him work in my life. 2016 was a year where I battled, cried and received the victory. To open the doors of prosperity in your life, you must speak Gods word over every single area of your life. Not just in the morning, not just at night… but all day. Seek God, and he will light the path of your greatest direction! Don’t believe me check out these pictures… some of them were taken the very same day.

I tell the devil every day _ YOU WILL NOT HAVE MY LIFE- MY PRAISE- MY VICTORY! I don’t care where my day begins or ends I will love God with all of my heart and proclaim His love and His victory. Just like you made it through last year you will go even higher this year!! But you can not move from the foundation of God!

How do I become a person who prays? #keepitreal

Too many times in our life, situations pile up like five o clock traffic, and while we’re in the midst of feeling stuck and aggravated, we do what comes naturally to us. Call a friend, scroll twitter, facebook or other social media. So today I want to talk to you about making prayer a natural reaction to life. Just like any habit, prayer is something you work at until your muscle memory defaults to prayer. You can train your thoughts to be on God when things are happening in your life. How? Start with 5 minutes a day; there is an amazing prayer app called “ the prayer app” that has tons of prayers for every occasion. Most of the prayers are less than 2  minutes long, download the app (it’s free) and find five minutes of your day to stop and pray. It has been said that it takes 21 days to create a habit, so if you can commit today to taking 5 minutes to pray for 21 days, I guarantee your life will never be the same. Let me know if you can commit 5 Minutes to pray for 21 days!

Peace

#Friday

I haven’t posted poetry in a while and would like to share this memory with you. Writing instantly put me back in the space of childhood. Let me know what your family fun day was like growing up! Enjoy #poetry #SLiM

Fridays

Smiles plastered as book bags drop

Plop plop YAY

Blankets gather together to see

Today is your pick, next week it’s on me

Cheese, butter, sweet, cold

No matter our age it never gets old

Family means you plus me plus time

We laugh until the sun runs behind the moon

Until our tummy looks full bloom

This is our day when work stands still

And anything serious gets forgotten

And being together is our thrill

A movie, a game, it doesn’t really matter

Listening, sharing, and admiring our smiles stuck on like plaster.

Psalms 20

Do you know that God has given both you and me the power to win??? The reason why it’s important to read our Bible, is because the word of God is a road map through the issues we encounter in life.  Psalms 20 is a wonderful example of God’s grace for us and explains how God not only hear us, but handles the conditions we encounter on a daily basis. If you have not committed your heart to God and your lifestyle to the word of God than you will always be stuck fighting battles with a blind fold on. It’s time to put the devil in his place and let God handle everything. Trust me, God is our true champion. Peace

Psalms 20: May the Lord answer you when you are in distress;
    may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.

God loves you

Occasionally the trials and misfortunes we come across in life attempts to overshadow the love God has for us. I am here to assure you that no matter how many times you have messed up, or what is going bad in your life today, God still loves you.

In church you are encouraged to read your bible because the bible gives a roadmap of how God loves you through every situation that you may be going through. The bible is bursting with examples of the brilliant way God loves us past our issues. So I encourage you today to dig into the great book and experience the life changing love of God. Still Don’t believe God loves you… read Romans 5:8. Peace

#Fathersday

As Father’s day approaches I want to urge everyone to get to know the best Father you could ever have which is God.Whether you had a horrible dad or an amazing dad, it’s important that we acknowledge our role in contributing to who your physical father is in your life. It is our responsibilities to pray over the men in our life. Men are so strong and sometimes we forget that these protectors, laborers, and fortifiers needs spiritual covering as well. As this holiday approaches, let’s not just look for a tangible gift to give the father figures in our life, but this holiday presents the opportunity to sew spiritually into the men that we Love through prayer. Below I am going to present scriptures that you can incorporate into your gift of prayer over the men in your life. Happy Father’s Day!

Scriptures:

2 Peter 3:18, Proverbs 4:23- Concerning your loved ones relationship with God

Proverbs 15:33, Eph 6:6- That God will bless him

1 Corinthians 11:3- That they would be a spiritual leader for their family

Galatians 5:13-15- That they would make wise choices
