Never Deprive Yourself :)


Sometimes your soul tells you about something you really need.  Don't let your mind tell you otherwise.  If you know that you need a certain snack to eat while you finish your project...if that snack is going to help you get an A+ on your exam, go take it!  Don't deprive yourself : )   Sometimes your body and soul know better than you.  If you hear your younger son invite you to go for a sandwich.don't say to yourself, "I wish, but i don't have the money.."  If you know you have 5 dollars in your pocket, go for it!  The conversations you have with your family in love are worth more than all the money you will ever make!  Life is calling you out every moment.   Commitments are calling you and trust me, you want to stay true to them as well, but life in the description  I am giving, are the enjoyments of life that you think will detour you from your goals, but are actually small or big catalysts that will help you reach your goals much sooner and give you more than what you could have ever imaginable are calculated with your own mind.  Trust your instincts on life!  Enjoy your life!  Take care of yourself and love life and life will love you right back! : )

Praying Against a Spirit of Complacency


Most people wouldn't call a spirit of complacency evil...but God would!  Read what God said about the servant who was complacent about using what he had been given!   Now look at what you've been given and pray against any spirit of complacency, don't change the world in one moment, just pray boldly and clearly and watch how God will work.  Pray for your family.  Pray for your friends.  God said he will make us prosperous, this means that we grow in knowledge, wisdom, and in all other ways that represents productivity.   If you've been given something that can be made productive in your life (you know better than anyone else what God has given to you to multiply, start praying about how to bless someone because that is what your gifts..that is the ONLY reason you have your gifts.  You were blessed to be a blessing.  Start praying to see how you can use those for blessing somebody in your life.

Faith Always Thrives!

How can you test to see if you are pleasing God!
Ask yourself:  Am I living by faith??
How can you test to see if you are living by faith?
Have an attitude check!
Ask yourself: Do I have a thriving attitude?
Thriving faith is the sign
Check your attitude and make sure that your attitude represents a thriving attitude; an attitude of thriving faith!
Remember: Faith Thrives!

Have an attitude of thriving faith today.  Notice I said attitude.  It starts with our attitude!

You are made to thrive everyday in everyway.  Amen. :)

You Will Always Be More Beautiful than All Creation


Listen, see your self as Beautiful in the Highest way imaginable!  It's all here right now!  You wont need to strive to be more and you will can't ever be anything else.   You will always be shining brightly and beautiful! Everyone has a certain opinion about stars, like Rihanna for example.  She has a song out there right now called "Diamonds"  She has a great point and I think it's so beautiful for a woman who is viewed by some as dirty, or raunchy, or just a bad girl to not care and sing boldly  "We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky"   She's got a good point.   We need to be boldly singing that we are God's most prized possession.   I challenge you to only see yourself as this way.

Life Is About Serving Others


Just a reminder, that life is about people.  :)    Loving our family and friends to the end is always the goal, and should always be the reason why we do everything.  Because when we love others, we are loving God Himself.

Matthew 25:34-40, Jesus says,

"Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.  For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.'

Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?  When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?  When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?'
"The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.

Have a nice day!

The Highest of Heights!

I don't know who I am.  Finally I realize this!  I've been spending years screwing up my life thinking I knew who I was, when I was fooling myself to think I could fathom all that God put in me!  This is why only God knows who I am!  I am safe with Him. 

Life is a journey!  Mostly because we are learning something new about ourselves and the world around us everu day.  I firmly believe we can't know everything about ourselves in a whole lifetime. 


I don't believe we are supposed to go off on a journey alone to know ourselves.  I believe we are made to know God.  The fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom.  But I'm glad to admit that I don't know myself.  I don't know of all the things that I can do in this life!  That's why we trust God.  We trust God who gave us something extraordinary great.  That is ourselves; i.e. Our Life.  And He wants us to trust Him with it, since He gave it to us.  Let's trust in  the God who made us and knows us better than we could ever know ourselves. as we trust God, sit back and relax and enjoy the ride..as one preacher (Joel Osteen) puts it, "God's going to take you places you've never dreamed of!"  Only God can take you there!   Trust in Him.  Come to the realization that you don't know yourself.  You never will in this lifetime like God does.  You don't know what you're capable to achieve until God shows you!  Just trust God with your life and let him take you to The Highest of heights!

Turn on the A.C. this Winter! ABSOLUTE CONFIDENCE!


This winter we more than ever need to turn on the A.C.  But not the cooling device!
Winter is a time when we bring out from the cupboards what we have.
It's time to turn on the A.C:  ABSOLUTE CONFIDENCE!
This Winter let's stand up tall, show strength in Whom we believe in!
God is able!  He will never fail! As the Hillsong phrase goes.  This is Biblical.
God will never fail, leave or forsake us!  He wants us to know, we can have
ABSOLUTE CONFIDENCE in what He promised us.
He promised us a victorious life over those who oppose us!
He promised an abundant life, not as we see it (He knows that's too small),
But as our enemies see it, so that they will forever know that God is with us!
For this reason, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is LORD!

Time to turn on the A.C. this Winter!   Stand up straight and wear this phrase over your heart today:

JESUS CHRIST IS LORD OVER EVERY AREA OF MY LIFE!

Have a great and prosperous day!

Seek After a Spirit of Great Wealth and Abundance



Proverbs 13:7. Today's society in the US has not had more debt ever in all it's history.  More people borrow and use things that do not necessarily belong to them.  Now I want you to get this.   Along the road we see the physical signs or manifestations, but what we really need to watch out for is the spirit.  And I don't mean to scare anyone, but we must be watchful, because in the US today, the attitude or spirit of debt is around trying to get in to our lives everywhere we turn.   What does the spirit of debt look like?  It's not a face, but an attitude.  It's an attitude of entitlement with earning.   It's an attitude of blame instead of dignity or responsibility.  Perhaps it is a face, but really an illusion.  Just like you can see the person in the nice car and clothes but are unable to see the outrageous debt beneath, it is just as similar when you see the smiling, pretty face of a man or woman, that is afraid to let the person next to her know what's really going on.   Let's make a prayer to get out of debt as it also support a good attitude about life, that we can be transparent in the best way and let people see us for who we are and gives us greater liberties to really set some other people free and help them.   Let's pray for each other as we pray for the Nations.   Financially Debt Free! Proverbs 13:7 : "One pretends to be rich, and has nothing, while another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth"  Which do you want to be today??

Have a blessed day!

Arrive At the End Of Yourself :)



Today, begin cancelling out all the factors that say, "I deserve this because..."   Those things will be the things that keep you from receiving the things you don't deserve.  

Listen, you may think because of your efforts, you deserve to enter into your local community college, but God wants you to let go of the things you think you deserve, because He wants you to enter into Yale University!  

Come to the end of yourself.  Understand that God wants to give you the things that display who He is, not who we are.  

Personally, I may think that I am talented, smart, able to do many things.  But I need to realize that GOD likes to do things that amaze even YOU beyond your imagination!   It won't be your talents, good looks, smile, or abilities necessarily that will break through!  It will be your belief in a God that does exceeding and way beyond all we could ever see, dream, or imagine for our lives.   Take the challenge to come at the end of yourself today.  Get to the point that you know God causes things to abundantly explode in your life.  

Take the challenge today!  Arrive at the end of yourself, because He's about to arrive into a new beginning for yourself and your entire family.  Amen! 

Have a great day!

Distraction Has Another Name: Her Name is "Poverty"



Distraction stares at us in the face.  She often screams at us and always tends to scream louder when we walk away from her.  She's afraid of being alone.  She is a dependent   She is dependent which is a signal for us as we seek independent, power and freedom from her.   But Distraction has another name..a name she doesn't want you to know that she has.   Her other name is "Poverty".  Become her friend.  Spend time with her.  Entertain and fulfill her needs and you will become just like her.   Run from her, keep going forward and you will not only excape her grasp, but you will leave her only to find your true place.   Remember, she is just like the Spanish refrain, "The loud barking dogs; they don't bite!"  Stay quiet and focused.  Remember! When the "bark" gets louder, it only means you are staying more fully on your course and soon...the further you steer away from her, the softer her bark will become.   Then you will meet more and more people who are friends with Destiny.  She has another name too.  She has many rich names.  Yes, rich names.  Abundance, Blessing. Great, Fruitful, Marvel, and Lucky.  But we all know it wasn't luck at all.  It was Focus on what has always been inside of you all along.  Stay close to your calling from inside.  And don't pay any attention to Distractions! 

This is Our President



We the people elected Barack Obama as President.  Now, it's time to put aside differences and support him.  So I never endorsed a president before, but today I do.  Why do I you ask?  Why this President?


Because, in my opinion, he in the greatest way right now, represents us; he represents that heart of USA and why we should love this country.  He represents us...not just black people, but we the people who hold these unalienable rights, the right to stand on and believe in a dream, who see beyond our country's debts and money, but towards an ideal, even if it may not be realized, even if this person or that person's intentions are bad...we the people believe in people, we believe that people no matter who they are or where they live or come from, can make a difference. It's not only about him; it's about us; it's about our ideals.  They are living!  Our dreams are alive and well and living today! And as I mentioned on Facebook, our views towards the laws of the land (abortion and types of marriage) never started in the government..they started in our homes, and that my friends is where it all stars and finishes.

You Are Your Own Leverage

Leverage is used: 


1. To provide (as a corporation) or supplement (as money) with leverage; also : to enhance as if by supplying with financial leverage

2. : to use for gain : exploit leverage
 the system to their advantage
Now listen:  You are your own leverage.  Often users look for leverage to help them advance in their habitat not only for survival but also to advance in there location they live.  

You are your own leverage.  You are what you need to advance in today's and any society or culture.   This is why less is more.  Look at some of the things in your life.  These things could be viewed as leverage, but do we really need them?  If not, they are not leverage but distractions.   Some people think, girlfriends, the latest technology, and networking is the leverage they need.  Not often so, or at least not all at once.   

Remember,   you are the leverage!   You are the asset that will help people.   You are more valuable than anything else around.   This helps us to remember that people are what is important.  They are not your leverage, you are your own leverage.  People are embeded in your purpose.   Help others.  You are your own asset and leverage to yourself to help as many people around as possible.  That is one of the main reasons why we are here:  To love God and love others.     

I challenge you to go through a time of inventory:  look into your life and keep the things that will help you to love God and love others, and pray how you can do this more and more.

The New American Dream


With the upcoming situation of the economy we are moving on to the New American Dream:

Instant gratification and indulgent have swept this nation by storm, and the deficit and national debt is the proof of it.   More American's are concerned about looking prosperous instead of being prosperous:  This is what I'm saying:

The new american dream is not living above our means but living with a goal to live below your material means,  the timeless values of old.

to be honest and stay honest.

Don't live for measure up to the ideas of today's materialistic society.


Here is a our new measurement worth investing in:   Our relationships with others, with the community, and with the world one person at a time; being true to yourself and living a simple life of integrity.  This is the new american dream in which we take our pride

Let us embrace these:

honesty, integrity  dedication, commitment and hope,  and let us turn towards the future.

The rewards will be measureless and so will your smiles and peace of mind and joy

Have a tremendously amazing day Today!

Be a Far Beyond Person... and Rest


Get into the spaceship and rest.   To be someone beyond, you don't have to do something necessarily far beyond; you just need to step into belief in what God is doing:  that's the spaceship.  Just be! And now what is your job?  Is it to fly the spaceship?  To up-keep the spaceship?  To check the gadgets on the spaceship?  No.  Your job is to rest, relax, and enjoy the ride.  

Rest today, knowing that God has everything for you and enjoy the ride.  Pray about your concerns, and after that..rest.
