Do what God told YOU to do!

Hey Fam,

   It's been far too long since I have post on my blog, but tonight I felt led to do so. This blog came from several conversations with loved ones throughout the holiday seasons and just casual conversations. As a blessed, beautiful single woman, many have asked me or commented on why I am not seeing someone or why I am not yet married. Along with that question, sometimes the suggestions come, "Why don't you try online" or "You haven't met anyone yet" or "Let me introduce you to this single guy that is a great catch" just to name a few responses. Can I be honest, in this world despite what the news and media portrays, we are "helpers" especially women and when we see a problem, we want to help others "fix" it. I am saying this because, I wholeheartedly believe that many who have tried to help meant well in their hearts; I have done this to others too for goodness sake!

However, can I tell you the greatest help I have received in receiving the promises of God and walking in His will for my life? Those who have pointed me to Jesus. Those who did not point me to another method or random plan, but those that pointed me to Jesus because anything else makes me anxious. Years ago, if you had told me I would be single at this age and point in my life; I would have cried and rolled on the grown kicking and screaming like a toddler having a tantrum, literally. It aint always been easy! However, pointing others to Christ when they are seeking direction in life is the best direction we can give. For at His feet, in His word, in His presence is every answer and direction we need.

I had a conversation with my cousin over Christmas, I love my cousin because he always looks out for me and checks on me at family functions to see how I am doing. This year, when he asked me if I was seeing anyone, he kinda seemed frustrated and wondering why it has not happened yet. I had to be honest with him, almost anyone can get a ring honey (honestly), however I have a promise from God that has a Kingdom purpose and I have received instructions from Him on not just how to receive His best for me, but how to be the woman He called me to be for His purposes.

This goes for ANYTHING, I say this because I don't want this to be a post about waiting to get married but trusting God and doing what He tells us to do, no matter what the norm is!

God gave me an example a few minutes ago; If you are working towards a promotion or a new position. You SHOULD seek what the president or head of that company is looking for in the job description, the specific job description. We wouldn't just try various different things hoping that they work, by the time we find out the promotion or new position may be filled! The same with God, if He gives you a word or promise, He also gives the instructions to obtain it; Then we have to do our part.

I know people who are in prosperous and blessed relationships and they were brought together in many different ways (yes some online, yes some through introduction, etc.).  However, that may have been God's plan for them, but what is His plan for you? For all areas of your life. He does not tell us everything up front because some of us would run (hence the tantrum I stated I would have had above).

If I would have gotten married in my 20s when I thought I was ready, I would not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and my husband would have been my God (what a travesty that would be)! If I did not wait 3 years to get a job as a school counselor, I would have been prideful and not humble and would not have been ready for what God had graced me to do in season. If I would have waited on friends to say yes to the call in ministry, I would have delayed what God wanted to do in and through me for HIS Kingdom. I'm sure you get my point.

What I am saying beloved is that God has a plan for you; we are approaching 2016 and I sense an urgency to:

1.  But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew 6:33
2.  And the seeds that fell on the good soil represent honest, good-hearted people who hear God’s word, cling to it, and patiently produce a huge harvest. Luke 8:15
3. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. Matthew 6:20

To sum these 3 up: 1. Keep God first 2. Sow the word, live it and you SHALL reap a harvest 3. Be eternity focus.

Love you all and pray that the Lord continues to keep you in the power of His might. I pray that we continue to chase after Him, God bless!!! Trust Him and Do what HE told YOU to do.

Waiting on the Lord, Part 1

Helloooooo Family!!!

   It has been far too long and their are some blogs on my heart, but I wanted to share this video first that was on my heart a few months ago. It is entitled, "Waiting on the Lord", we are ALL waiting on God for SOMETHING; even if it is for Him to return.  I pray it blesses you and encourages you that GOD is always up to something great. Sometimes we give the devil too much credit.

Say NO to fear!

Hello Friends,

   Here is a short video of what God ministered to me about NOT tolerating fear. I remember hearing Jimmy Evans from marriage today ministry say, "Fear is the devils faith". I also heard another pastor (Cornelius Lindsey) say that, " If it makes sense, it doesn't take faith". Let's make it a point to kick fear OUT of our house!!!

Love you guys,

Got Contentment?

I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength. (Philippians 4:11-13 NIV)

God is Faithful. This is literally what I have experienced Him to be. We all have or will have our God Experience (what we know Him to be due to experience), mine is His Faithfulness!

The past 8 years or so God has taught me so much about contentment and I'm excited to share with you! In the past month God moved very quickly in my life in an area that was years in the making (8  1/2). I want to shout it from the mountain tops: "God is Faithful, He has not forgotten you! Instead of focusing on the blessing or answered prayer focus on Him, Love Him and Worship Him in the process! He can't fail you!" The reason we get so frustrated and are not content is because we take our eyes off of God and on the situation. I honestly believe that one of the reasons I had to wait so long is because God was waiting on me. Uh huh, that's right: My heart was not right before Him and therefore I was not ready!

There were mornings, days and nights of tears, anger, frustration, fear, shame and guilt just to name a few.The enemy even had me wondering if I was doomed or cursed. He (the devil) is a liar and He just wants our focus to be off the Lover of our Soul: Jesus!

Whether desiring marriage, a new job, house, ministry opportunities, wanting to know your purpose, a breakthrough, etc.  God wants us to seek Him with all our hearts, not the "things", even though those "things" may be very important.

What I have to share with you is no formula and no 3 step plan to get your blessing or find contentment. In Phillipians 4:11, Paul shared that he has LEARNED to be content no matter what state or season He is in. I'd like to say that I am learning daily.

Just yesterday, I went to a bridal shower for a precious and powerful Sister in Christ who is getting married in November. As I was sitting there with tears in my eyes as she was sharing her testimony, I could not help but think: "God you are SO Faithful", with joy in my heart. It was not always this way though. Because I too desire to be married, going to bridal showers used to be hard for me. Although I was smiling at the shower or wedding, I would sometimes go home sad or fearful that it would never happen for me, I would cry out to God and say, "When is it my time"!?? Overtime, if we continue to cling to God (and sometimes we will fall), but just pick yourself up and say, "Lord, I'm not letting you get rid of me", lol! As if He really wants to get rid of us in the first place.

If you are weary and tired in your wait and you want to move ahead in areas of your life, if you feel like you can't take it anymore and you have reached your limit, I speak this over your life: "You shall not die, but live, and declare the works of The Lord" (Psalm 118:17).

I honestly believe contentment is found in the bumps, bruises and pains in life. Sometimes, we have to go through the fire a little longer than others because God has to do a work IN us. Trust God, it is far better to feel temporary pain in God's process with His covering, than to go outside His will and feel pain He never ordained for you to go through without His covering.

Love you all and I pray this helps and encourages somebody. I am praying for you! You too will be able to share what The Lord has done and encourage others to trust in His Love!

***If your wondering what God did for me recently, He opened the door for me to be a school counselor. Something I have wanted to do for a while now. After years of interviewing and praying and a whole bunch of other stuff, I saw the manifestation of His promise! Thank you Jesus!!!

***Check out the most recent praise and Worship video, Jehovah Nissi. This is a ministry that God laid on my heart. To go OUT and declare who He is to the world:

Love and God bless,


God Bless You,

Messy Love

"Lord, your love is perfect; Especially when it seems like it is not".

This is what I wrote in my journal earlier today, after waking from a nap and feeling burdened and heavy about it being a holiday and desiring my own family (just keeping it real, I have my moments).

Can I share with you something I have learned personally about God's love; it's Messy. Yes I said it,it was  not a typo, lol! What I mean is that out of my life relationship with God, the most beautiful moments that I have experienced in relationship with Him has been birthed out of hot mess situations (undesirable, unpopular, lonely, seemingly dry, or consequences from our bad decisions)!

I can explain it best like this: Imagine, there is this well known Chief artist and He is preparing to premier His best art piece ever. Everyone is talking about it. Some are skeptical, some are excited, and some don't know what to expect. It is clear that this chief artist is SO excited about His premiere piece of artwork. He has put his blood, sweat, tears and heart into it. He makes it perfect not missing one stroke or painting. So here goes the public viewing and you are the star guest. The unveiling is about to take place, many have gathered to seen (some because they genually want to know and others just to see what the hype is all about). The chief artist comes in and greets everyone, He introduces his premiere piece and asks you to do the honors of unveiling this most precious artwork!!! Once it is unveiled,  It is quiet in the room some are looking in astonishment, others look disgusted and turn there nose up, then yet others are confused as to what it is or means! The chief artist asks you what you think, you don't want to hurt His feelings because He is so excited and overwhelmed with joy! To you, the premiere piece looks....... Messy. To you it has so many imperfections and things seem to be all over the place! The artist can see from your facial expression exactly how you feel, then He grabs your hand and says, " My love, let me explain. This is my most beautiful prized possession. I put my blood, sweat and tears into this. This is my LOVE for you and it is my MASTERpiece"!

If you can tell, the chief artist is God and we are His special guest He asked to do the unveiling. The painting is His love for us. See, the world has given us a shallow, easy and even selfish view of love. This is not Love though. A lot of the things we experience in life may seem a hot steamy mess and the way We see our lives is in the world's eye, so we try to deny it or even look at it in disgust. It may look messy and far from perfect to us. Although His love is perfect, when we are in the midst of trial or test it may not feel or look perfect because WE are not perfect. Only God and His love is.

 Stop trying to be perfect for the world, the world will never be satisfied. Receive God's "messy" Love, which is perfect through His eyes! Let's ask Him to show us our lives through His eyes! It will look completely different! <3
