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!

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.

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

Shut UP Devil

Our minds are incredibly powerful tools that can either propel or deter the future. To gain power, or dominion on this earth you have to learn how to shut negativity up.

How do we do such a thing? By learning and speaking the word of God. When we know what God declares over our life, it is harder for the devil to manipulate our thoughts and distract us from the provisioned path God wants us to walk down. Heres a prayer I love to use from a book titled: The Prayer Book.

“Daily Confession of Faith”
In Christ I am anointed and a powerful person of God.
I am a joint-heir with Jesus and more than a conqueror.
I am a doer of the Word of God and a channel for His blessings.
If God be for me, who can be against me?
I am blessed coming in and I am blessed
Going out. My enemies are fleeing before me. God has commanded
His blessing on my storehouses. He has opened His
Good treasures and I shall lend and not borrow.
I am the head and not the tail.
He has given me power to make wealth.
I dwell in the secret place I have
His protection and provision. God is my refuge, my fortress
I am not afraid of the snare of the fowler. No
Evil shall befall me and no plague shall come nigh
My dwelling. God has given his angels
Charge over me and they are bearing me up in their hands lest
I dash my foot against a stone, as declared in Psalms 91.
I Peter 2:9 establishes I am a chosen generation,
A royal priesthood, a holy nation.
I am a peculiar person called out of darkness
Into His marvelous light.
I Peter 2:24 states, I have been healed by the stripes of Jesus.
Cancer, sugar diabetes, heart disease, sickness,
Afflictions, infections, or any other disease cannot enter my body.
I am without spot or blemish,
An intercessor, the righteousness of God, saved, and washed in the
Blood of Jesus.
“No weapon formed against me shall prosper, and every tongue
Which rises against me in judgment You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their
Righteousness is from Me,” Says the LORD.
I am saved from wrath by Him and justified
by the Blood of the Lamb.
Lord I pray that those may prosper that love Jerusalem and that peace will
be within them and prosperity in their houses according to Psalms 122:6-9.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah!

Shout out to the MIDDLE Man

Have you ever watched a dynamic movie or read a compelling book about success? During the story, you follow the dreamer through the worst of times and then into the best of times. While you feel sorry for the dreamer as the description of poverty, sickness, or misfortune plages the character in the middle, you are still pleasant through the story because, in the end, the character achieves success.

I want to encourage someone right now who is in the middle of their success in life because the middle of the success story absolutely SUCKS lol. And that’s ok …if the middle didn’t suck you and I would be content in our old habits, and continue down the road we are on even though God wants more for us.

I want to encourage the middle man! You, my friend, are great! To be on such a journey takes tremendous courage, and drive. Don’t give up, keep walking through the mud and before you know it, you’ll be at the top of the mountain! You will make it through this don’t give up now, because the story is not yet complete.
