The Billions And So Much More Store

I want to make a store called "The Billions and So Much More Store"
Like a 21st century sanction.  A Positive Goals' empowerment place and a place were people can go and rest.

Here's how it will work:  With three reliable references from work, school, etc..
And 50 dollars or however much a year.  Anyone 21 and up can be given the chance to have a place of sanction, a place were they can just go and have rest.  A familiar place of collective thought.

I know what you're thinking, "Well, isn't the church supposed to be that?"  Yes, it is.  No argument there.  But unfortunately, churches are no longer allowed to create an atmosphere of complete sanction due to theft and mass attraction, and an unfamiliar physical environment.   People can not go there to collect their thoughts during the week (unless the janitor's really nice and let's you in just to walk around for a couple of hours).  This is just not the reality for churches in today's age.

This is the environment:  Think of a home that is transformed and looks much like the picture you see; only
more comfortable, not with a lot (if any) multimedia.  Perhaps classical music (or silence), and areas to read, but not like a library;  here YOU take ownership and here you can really take a break from society, which we all need moderately at some time.  it is all for the purpose of gathering peace: Your Peace.   You can sit and just relax, read a book,
or meditate (sit, be still, think); but this isn't a passive or non-active place...No!  This is a place for goal setting!  This is a place for rejuvenated rest in your mind, soul, spirit and beyond!   (note: I wanted to call this place Billions and Beyond, but sounds too closely to "Bed Bath and Beyond" hehe) This is a place for visually charging up!   A place were reset, relocate or recharge your vision for your life.  You can regather and/or strengthen your goals and vision daily or weekly here.  This is just a start;  the goal is that you gather what you have learned or the practice you gained here for when you get out and go to the places you will be.  Before you go, there will be a paper and pen for you to write down what you gained and your vision to take it with you as you leave every time.  Research for teaching shows that the more you write down your goals, the more clear they will become for you in your life.  So write it down peoples!   Where do you see yourself in the next five, ten, fifteen years?  Write it down!

This is an armory room designed for the soul purpose of armoring up, igniting ALL that you
have inside you.   Only you can do it, and this place makes it ok, recognizable, honorable, and easier for you to do.  Even for people who pass by, it will be a reminder, because this room, house, building.. is not designed to confine are dream within it, but rather to ignite the flame inside, to trigger people to take what they form positively inside, into what is outside of this building.

What a room this will be!

"As Long As You Love Me"

Justin's mother, Pattie Mallette, recently wrote a book about her painful experiences growing up, painful divorce of her parents, neglect of school, and an inch away from suicide six months before her baby was born.  The feeling of great pressure...  And who notices.?  Why would she want a baby to live in a place like this?  She could have considered it.  She could have considered everything this way:  "It would be better for the baby if I simply aborted...It's better for him this way! What if I don't have enough money, enough food, a home to support him/her in...?  It would be just better this way...".   But she didn't go through with it!   Somehow she trusted God in this impossible circumstance....She decided to stand on love instead of  whatever her mind might have been saying...she let God decide what would be from her mind "better" for her and for the baby.   Now we are all see what God had in mind;  we are all hearing a current song from this gift from God to his mother; a song that I believe was what a mother decades ago heard softly hearing from her unborn child, inside her womb from her baby boy, crying long before he was born:


"As Long As You Love Me"
As long as you love me

We're under pressure,
Seven billion people in the world trying to fit in
Keep it together,
Smile on your face even though your heart is frowning
But hey now, you know, girl,
We both know it's a cruel world
But I [would] take my chances

As long as you love me
We could be starving, we could be homeless, we could be broke
As long as you love me
I'll be your platinum, I'll be your silver, I'll be your gold
As long as you love, love, love, love me (love me)
As long as you love, love, love, love me (love me)

I'll be your soldier,
Fighting every second of the day for your dreams, girl
I'll be your Hova
You can be my Destiny's Child on the scene girl
So don't stress, don't cry, we don't need no wings to fly
Just take my hand

As long as you love me
We could be starving, we could be homeless, we could be broke
As long as you love me
I'll be your platinum, I'll be your silver, I'll be your gold
As long as you love, love, love, love me (love me)
As long as you love, love, love, love me (love me)

Yo, B-I-G
I don't know if this makes sense, but you're my hallelujah
Give me a time and place, and I'll rendezvous, and I'll fly you to it,
I'll beat you there
Girl you know I got you
Us, trust...
A couple of things I can't spell without 'U'
Now we are on top of the world, 'cause that's just how we do
Used to tell me, "Sky's the limit", now the sky's our point of view (view)
Man now we stepping out like, "Whoa" (Oh God)
Cameras point and shoot (shoot)
Ask me what's my best side, I stand back and point at you
You, you the one that I argue with, I feel like I need a new girl to be bothered with,
But the grass ain't always greener on the other side,
It's green where you water it
So I know we got issues baby true, true, true,
But I'd rather work on this with you
Than to go ahead and start with someone new
As long as you love me

As long as you love me (Love me yeah yeah yeah)
We could be starving, we could be homeless, we could be broke
As long as you love me
I'll be your platinum, I'll be your silver, I'll be your gold
As long as you love, love, love, love me
As long as you love, love, love, love me
As long as you love, love, love, love me (I'll be your silver, I'll be your gold)
As long as you love, love, love, love me
As long as you love, love, love, love me
 
Someone encouraged her and she had the baby! That baby, of course, is Justin Beiber.  I believe it takes faith to stand when no one else is standing around you. Stand and believe what God can do through it all! I believe that In her heart a baby inside of her was singing a song.   Every time you look at Justin, I pray that you see the value of a person's life, no matter the circumstances are, long before babies are formed in the womb.     

"As long as you love me" Great song Justin!

Treat Your Commitments LIke a Relationship and Your Relationships Like a Commitment!


Many people misunderstand the fact that our commitments, our jobs, our promises, our connections are desperately connected and linked to people, the closest people in our lives.  I've heard it said, (many times I've heard this from myself) "Oh, if I'm a little late, it's ok!"  or "If I don't give them great quality in this, it's no sweat off my shoulder."  That may be true, but what we miss is:

"Every commitment we make is deeply linked to the quality of relationships we want to have."   I can't tell you how many times I missed this.   It may be obvious that when we don't meet a certain number of commitments, that it will effect our relationships, but I agrue that many people do not see the tasks themselves as relationships.  Or even see your commitments themselves as a person!  This helps me!   When I see the task I'm actually doing as a person and not just something I need to get down, I tend to take it more seriously.  I'm discovering that our jobs are not simply jobs, they are linked to what God wants for us and what God wants for us to have in abundance:  deep, of highest quality, and long lasting,  coworking relationships, some of which can lead to a marriage, or a business partnership, or even foundations and fundraisers to help people who need our help.  I've come to this conclusion: Every commitment is to be treated like a person.  With that being said, think about all the people today you will treated so well!   We tend to miss the fact that people and purpose are deeply related and desperately linked to all the commitments we make.   You wouldn't hurt a person!  Then remember to carefully lookover your commitments.  A commitment is not about you, it's not about them, it's about God's purpose through it.  we need to pray to be good stewards of the things we've made commitments to.   Lord, help us to be good stewards of every commitment we make.  Give us wisdom to make good practical decisions and not carry on too many commitments so that we can be a blessing to those that are most important in every area of our lives.

You Dig...I Build

During a time when everybody around you is building, it seems counterproductive to be digging! But I have a contract from a contractor that said, "Dig for me a foundation, and I'll fill it!"   

God is saying,  "Work on yourself..being the best person you can be...learning from yourself and reconnecting, nurturing and caring for the relationships I have placed in your life, and I will do all the growing."  

God is saying, "Make space in your hearts, stopping setting goals to do things that do not have me in mind, search your hearts and have taken out the things that would not give me 100% glory."    In practical terms, if God says, "you will be successful in this"  Make room, narrow down your commitments to those things in your life God is blessing.  The best practice is to rid yourself of things physically (perhaps from your apartment, room, car, etc...) from your past or present that just seem to be literally collecting space and not launching you to spring forward!  You'll be amazed at how many of us are distracted just because our territories are literally filled with clutter, and the physical items, because we are hoarding them, they take up literal space in our minds.  We need to release them!  We hold on to those things because we are hoping for those things to somehow come back.  But just think about it!  If we are holding on to things from before that did not work before, than what is it that we are saying that God can do with very things that we have!   Let Them Go!  Make room and God will fill it with the new and wonderful things He wants to do in your life.  

Many people stay in the same pointless routines from day to day, because a they are procrastinating, they are neglecting their own legacies, or they are just being lazy, but God is saying, "make room for me and I  will fill up with my wonders beyond what you've every dreamed!"  Mostly people are doing these routines because in their minds there is so much mess, and it's not really a mess, It is usually just items representing failed human hopes that were never meant to be a catalyst, but a stepping stone, now get the stones in your life that are only going to contribute significantly to your future, and get rid of anything else!  Know your treasure and keep them always in view!  Do something though with your trophies!   Listen, a house that is full of millions of your trophies your trophies is useless.  Say, "I'm thankful for all these trophies..but I need to be able to see to get to the next room!"  A pile of disorganized trophies is still a mess!  Attend to the messes in your life.  Make the room!  Get rid of the heavy weights!   Ask God for the help, He will come in like a flood!  That's a promise!   (2 Chronicles 7:14)

Get the clutter out of your foundation, and start digging!  God will fill it!

Be Champions!


Yesterday, My family had their first meeting together to support my sister Tiffanie who has been in the Hospital for over a year with the great spirit ever!  Please keep my wonderful sister in your prayers.  (Above: (Right to Left) My father, mother, and my aunt)
We are a powerful people of God! 
Have a great day! 

My family, they are champions not because of what they are doing, but because of the position we conclude and decide to take.  We choose to take on the position of TRUST.  In God we Trust!  We choose to take of the position that God is in control and He will work wonders that will make every passerby  spin their heads!  Our God is a Mighty Awesome Good and Loving God!

Did you Take Your Verbal Vitamins Today?


Make a list of incredible words to describe you and who you want to be.  Read or say them out loud to yourself.  Everyone needs their verbal vitamins for the day before they step out to their respective locations.  You have the greatest privilege in the world to encourage and care  for yourself, so you can continue to take on an even greater privilege (greater than greatest!), and that is to care for others.   Don't put the horse before the carriage.  Take your verbal vitamins today. 

Have a great day!

A Call To Discipline


Early to bed, and early to rise,
is never considered a suggestion to the wise.
For they know that wealth and riches of many kinds,
just like the precious manna from heaven,
can only be found at that priceless time,
So when you look around you and there's no dreams left to find,
Keep in mind: They all come true,
and they're waiting for you.
When? Where? Early to bed and early to rise.



- a call to discipline
- a poem of repentance

Make Room For Me and I Will Fill It!


 To be successful, what successful people do is look at someone successful, see what they are doing, and do what they have been doing.  It's really that simple.  But in this world, few prime role models can be found.  What is God's definition of men/women who are successful?  Look into the Bible; if you want many possessions, then look at the lives of people in the Bible who are godly with many posessions.  If you want a more simpler life, then look at the people in the Bible who really had a much more powerful yet materially simplistic lifestyle.  Both groups were greatly empowered to have the lives that they have, and they all greatly impacted Billions.  These are God's top examples in the Bible.  He has more today as well!  Look for godly men and women today whom God has caused to touch this world.   See what they are doing and do what they are doing in wisdom of course (you yourself are unique to God and thus have a very unique ministry around you by you). Therefore, give to God the one thing:  Your prayer life.  Ask God what one thing you're not giving up that you may give up to Him so He can release all the blessings to impact this world.  This is what He has for you and every person with whom you are in contact with. 

In order for God to work in our life, we have to make room for Him!  Make room in our hearts:  This is key;  we need a heart operation done.  Remember: Everything we have in our lives is there due to our heart condition; our posessions, the quality of our relationships, the money we have, EVERYTHING! For God said that "Out of these things flow from the wellspring of our hearts!"  Therefore if there is anything that we are praying or truly longing for in our hearts; it is due to a heart problem, something that not God has withheld from us; but rather there is something you have always been withholding from God in your heart.  Give up to God today that which you have been always holding on to and God promises that He will fill it!   Trust in the Lord today and He will give you more than the best which is beyond our imagination or comprehension!  Pray to God.  Ask Him "Please search my heart!"  But be willing to Give to God space; then you will see God work in incredible ways in your life.   Give up space in your heart!  Give it up! 



Step out in faith today!  Give up to God one thing, so that he may fill it today!

How to be productive in your Circle of Influence


How to be productive in your Circle of Influence

Here’s the Key:   Keep in mind, if you have one or two close friends in your life, you are extremely at an advantage!   It is hard to talk to some friends.  Why?  Because they’re not really your friends.  The people who are your close friends are those whom you can speak faith into their lives easily and they can speak faith into you. Anybody else is a waste of your time and I would advise you not go out of your way to try and “man handle” them so that you “keep them in your circle of friends”.  You are at no deficit of friends.  The biggest illusion can have is you are supposed to go out and make as many friends as possible with your life.  WRONG!  

The best friends you’re going to have in your life will come out of their observation of how you are treating your truest most dear one or two friends and how you are lifting them up!  Know who your truest friends are.   Remember:  Jesus said,  “Who is my family?  They are those who obey the word of God.”  Saying, those who will speak God’s words moved by God’s spirit are those who are your closest, most true circle of friends and family.  Remember:  People who simply know how to speak the word of God are not necessarily your closest friends, but those who speak faith into your life are those moved by God’s spirit to be a powerful source of encouragement in your day to day walk.  Walk around them.  

Other people: let me advise you:  Stay away on a personal level!  Each person is meant to be a friend to you in a certain level.  Do not place them above or below the level they should be in.  Mostly, you will have to sift friends and manipulators in your life.  Do it quickly and remember that you are never in a deficit of friends.  You are fashioned with more than enough. 

One more thing:  As you encourage and strengthen the friends whom are closest to you.  That is only when you have the platform and the encouragement to give encouragement to the circle of influence God has graciously given to you.  So don’t place the carriage before the horse.  Love those in your triangle of close friends, and you will encourage your massively growing circle of influence also.  

Note:  Think about your family.  You’re closest friends might be you, your wife, or your husband, and God.
