Don’t Discount Your Past
When I look back at my life so far, what I have gone through, what I have done and where I have been I just have to say thank you God!
I am Expecting a New Thing to Happen in my Life!
This is my prayer..."Lord, today I am expecting a new thing to happen in my life! I know I walk in your favor and possess the blessing. I am a joint heir and your beloved..."
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…
It’s Me Oh Lord, Standing in Need of Prayer
“Don’t focus on your weaknesses; focus on your God.” – Pastor Joel Osteen Yesterday, I received a report about my health that essentially shook my world. The news even came with pictures! I am still trying to wrap my head around it. In a sense, I honestly can’t because if I do I will open a door for fear to enter in rather than let my faith to grow from within. I think I can actually list what I am experiencing in the natural as the physical manifestation of things I know that have been going on in the spirit. There are dreams and things that I was supposed to…

Connecting the dots… I already know you know how to drive.
Friday, August 30, 2013 Connecting the dots… I already know you know how to drive. Today, I will be going for my second attempt at passing my road test in Texas. I am confident I will pass it this time. Amazingly, I have never felt so much at peace about a road test then I do today. The Coach is a bit concerned because he is not sure if he will be able to leave the job early enough to get me to the testing site for my appointment. I am confident he will, so I am not sweating it. Too many things have been lining themselves up for me not to…
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…

By Myself… I Could Not Even Get Out of The Parking Lot! (Part 1 of 2)
“In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.” – Proverbs 3:6 Amplified “Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall.” – Proverbs 16:18 Amplified July 2nd 2013 Last week I took my road test for the first time in Texas and failed. I had become crippled by the spirit of fear. When I went to take the test I was not sure about my performance of one particular driving maneuver. That lack of confidence paralyzed me so that I was not able to get out of the DPS (Department of Public Safety / Department of Motor Vehicle)…
