God, Brought Me In Remembrance; I Know Five Women
God, brought me in remembrance of these truths earlier this morning during my time of worship and study. I hope it blesses someone as it blessed me. +++ I know five women that Man told them that they would NEVER be able to birth children… The first one had surgeries that removed part of her reproductive system. She recently gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. The second, her and spouse tried for eight years to conceive, but God surprised them, and they are expecting a little girl this summer. The third, the father was snipped, but God again thought otherwise and made his seed fertile again. My friend is…
My Holiday Break Reading List
I posted the other day I’ve stockpiled books like a squirrel over the last year. Here is the list of books I am reading over the Christmas holiday break while I am off from work. I believe it’s important that I use this time to recharge and prepare for the new year and these titles speak to where I am in my process. Faithing It: Bringing Purpose Back to Your Life! by Cora Jakes Coleman The Power of I Am: Two Words That Will Change Your Life Today by Joel Osteen Fervent: A Woman’s Battle Plan to Serious, Specific and Strategic Prayer by Priscilla Shirer Overcoming Fear: Eliminating the Bondage of Fear by…
My God is Faithful! – Prayer of Thanksgiving
My God… Is a faithful God! I am thanking Him in advance for opening doors no man can shut. For giving me the words to speak and the wisdom to know when to just listen. An abundance of favor is mine. I shout grace, grace in Jesus’ name!
You Are More Powerful Than You Could EVER Imagine.
“You are more powerful than you could EVER imagine. Walk with a boldness knowing, you wouldn’t be here if God didn’t have a purpose for you to fulfill!” This morning as I was starting my day, the above statement came into my Spirit. All I could do at the moment was to say Ok, I receive it Lord! I then was led to begin cleaning out and archiving my voice recorder. I hadn’t realized I had over 3 years of recordings stored on it! Many of the audio files were of Music Ministry rehearsals from my church back home World Changers Church – New York. I found some real gems…
This may seem random… You were on my heart.
The other day I felt led to just say thank you to sister-friends that have played pivotal roles in my life’s journey. Many of them I do not speak to on a regular basis offline. The last time I might have seen some of them is as much as 20 years ago! However, because of technology we are connected to each other through social media. So, while, on the phone with my sister, I updated my Facebook status and began going through my contacts and tagging ladies to the post. The response was lightening fast and powerful! It became an all out love fest that has lasted most…
Four Ladies I am Currently Crushing On
I am thinking of spicing up my look up a bit. This past Wednesday, I was surfing the net looking for style inspiration. Ironically in the process I learned the meaning of the hashtag #WCW which stands for “Woman Crush Wednesday”. From the images I collected and posted on my Social profiles; I can definitely say I am crushing on Ledisi, Chrisette Michele, Erykah Badu and Jill Scott. All four ladies are extremely gifted artists that have a unique eclectic fashion sense. Ledisi ◄ Back Next ► Picture 1 of 5
Confidence is the fruit of trusting God. – Joyce Meyer
“Confidence is the fruit of trusting God. When we trust Him, we may not have all the answers, but we are confident that He does.” – Joyce Meyer from her devotional book “Trusting God Day by Day: 365 Daily Devotions“
Making that Necessary 180 Degree Turn
Lord, today I confess that I have made a 180 degree turn and am resting peacefully in your presence. My re-born sealed spirit is already yielded and bonded to you. I now submit my mind/soul and body to be led. Have your will with me Lord. I thank you for your grace and new mercies this morning. I thank you for your unmerited favor and unconditional agape love. I know I am your beloved because of this knowledge; I walk boldly into your courts with praise. I stand in awe and utter reverence because you loved me so much that you gave me a savior, a redeemer and a big…
Spending Time In Your Presence
Lord, I have learnt to spend time in your presence [continuously] simply means to acknowledge that you are always with me. What a comforting thing to know! You have seen my future and have provided provisions for me to achieve each promise you have said are mine because of my heavenly adoption. It’s all right there in your Book of Grace (the Bible) and what you have written on my heart! I seek your infinite wisdom on where I should go, what I should say, and your timing; you have already ordered my steps. Thank you for being so patient with me as I grow in faith day by day.…
Taking a trip in the Wayback Machine
I remember playing “Emancipation” while late night freestyle writing poetry in the Prince Fan chat rooms I frequented. The ones I liked. I would post at the Lair or kept in my journal. Many of those poems actually ended up in my book “Poetry of a Black Girl: the Darkness and the Light”.
