And so a new journey has begun
I am stretching my neck out in faith and expectancy for some particular things in the upcoming year. While preparing to do so, I have decided to read and blog about my journey; so that I can have a tangible record of this season in my life. To be honest, in one of my private times with God, he told me I needed to utilize my love for the language arts especially reading and writing because my testimony may bless another woman going through a similar journey. There are some books, web links, audio and video message I have stockpiled and nibbled on bits and pieces from time to time…
Trust in His Timing
We don’t attempt to speed up the process of baking a cake because we know if we do it may end up flat. Why then do we try to rush God in regards to his timing and seeing manifestations of the blessing in our lives? Everything happens in God’s perfect timing. So, rest assured He has you covered. Just stay in faith! #LOVEFORWARD
Running With the Vision
One of the things I have learned in my almost 10 years as serving as a steward and assistant in ministry is this… At the time the leader is casting the vision, your heart has to be willing to receive it. Once you do, you can conceive it for yourself. You become a surrogate of that vision. Now, as it is developing within you… It’s your responsibility to speak life into it, prepare for its birth by setting up systems and processes so it can be successful once presented to the world. And even after it has begun to take its first steps and strides…. It’s still your job to continue…
The Positive Effects of Change, I have a Different Attitude!
I think one of the most powerful things that have had to happen due to my relocation, is the need for me to start over in a number of areas of my life. I actually have no other choice but to if I am to succeed moving forward in any assignment God places in my responsibility to steward. The Lord has given me fresh eyes, and revelation. I am being stretched and have moved away from my comfort zone, New York, home. During this season, God has humbled me on so many levels, and I am still being humbled and pruned. I love this season I am in. Though there…
Why I really don’t think it’s OK to use the “N” or “B” words.
September 28, 2013 (Facebook Status Update) – I just took a look at my FB feed and was a bit disgusted. No matter how you say it or spell it the “N” word means a low life human being. And the “B” word means a female dog; which is an animal that may at times eat its own young and feces, and offer its hind-parts to accept any male. If you, allow yourself to be called or call someone who you care about either … You are calling them out of their name. Don’t allow yourself to be defined LESS than God’s best. I just had to say something. Getting…
Mama, Please Get Your Baby…
It seems that it is now a continuing romance between us and the Mockingbirds that live in the tree that resides on our front yard. The other evening as the Coach and I were returning home from a long day of activities, we were confronted by the sound of rustling in our outside garbage can. My brave husband took a look inside and saw that a bird had flown or fallen in since we had left it uncovered. I followed up his analysis with my own and learned that it was a baby bird that resembled “Cranky Bird” the Mockingbird that likes to sit itself on the roof and look…

Janelle Monae featuring Erkyah Badu “Q.U.E.E.N.” (VIDEO)
Janelle’s closing rap… “Yeah, Let’s flip it I don’t think they understand what I’m trying to say I asked a question like this Are we a lost generation of our people? Add us to equations but they’ll never make us equal. She who writes the movie owns the script and the sequel. So why ain’t the stealing of my rights made illegal? They keep us underground working hard for the greedy, But when it’s time pay they turn around and call us needy. My crown too heavy like the Queen Nefertiti Gimme back my pyramid, I’m trying to free Kansas City. Mixing masterminds like your name Bernie Grundman. Well I’m…
It’s Okay, God Already Knows
So… you missed the mark. You sinned. You were disobedient to God’s will / His word. Now what? FYI Its okay, God already knows what you did. Will there be consequences? Sure there will be. It’s okay to go to him and talk about it and get the instruction on how to get back on track. God is God, he created you and he has given you a purpose to fulfill. But first you need to get over yourself… (YOU-R-SELF)… relax he is waiting for you; he has made an opening just for you in his busy schedule.
