Some people are so negative that they become uncomfortable to be around. And if you are not careful you will find yourself becoming just like them. I don't need a whole lot of negativity in my life. It's bad enough I have the enemy constantly fighting against me. Before one speaks they should first determine if what they say is edifying or if it's something that's destructive. Constructive criticism is one thing but destructive criticism is another. If the company that you keep are not building you up then it is time to reconstruct your circle of friends. Attitudes are contagious so take no part in adapting to foul behavior.
Well Lord I missed the mark today and I need for you to please forgive me. You know me better than I know myself and you knew I wasn't going to speak up when I should have. I promise if a situation like this comes up again, I won't let you down. I Love You Lord.
When my husband and I buried our first two children, I thought that it was the end for me. I was angry at God for allowing us to endure such an horrific suffering. But when God touched our hearts and the Holy Spirit ministered to our spirit, we were able to move pass the pain. I was told to stop trying to have children but we trusted that God would one day bless us. Through the prayers of the righteous and our faith, I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Anaya! Soon after Allycia, Johnnia, and Jada made their debut. He promised that he would give me the desire of my heart if I would seek him first. I did just that and he made good on his promise. I lost two babies and He gave me four; He gave me double for my trouble. This is just one of the many blessings that God has bestowed upon my life. And for this I will forever give Him praise! Glory be to God in Jesus Name Amen!
When God has placed you on a path of greatness let nothing detour you. Trials and tribulations come to better equip you for the challenges ahead. There may seem like that there is a easy way out, but take no short cuts. The enemy will try to trick you into believing that it doesn't take a whole lot of effort to accomplish miraculous endeavors, but be wise and not foolish to the enemy's devices. Ask any successful person if thier success came easy and you will be told an immediate No. If The Lord tells you to GO then do not stop until your mission has been completed. Keeping moving in God's timing and in God's speed. Be Blessed!
Today I witnessed a young man having a seizure and before it took over, he let out a cry of distress. I have never observed a situation where so many people wanted to help but couldn't. All I could do was call on the name of Jesus. When it was all over he quickly came to himself. I later learned that it was his 6th episode in a ten day time frame. This reminded me of how things were for me not long ago. I was faced with a great trial and although people wanted to help; it was nothing that anyone could do. My cry of distress was heard by the Almighty and as always, he came to see about me. Like the young man, once the turbulence ceased I returned to myself. When nothing else could help it was the love of God that lifted me.
Man, it felt so good to sit with Jerold Jackson to talk about my book. I wish that I could do this all the time. Lord please bless me so that I can minister full time. I know this is what I am supposed to be doing. I am walking in his perfect will for my life. Amen.
Have you ever felt lonely even when you were in a room full of people? There was a time I felt all alone. I had one group of people telling me I was too saved and another group saying I was not saved enough. It was not until I decided to focus on the main purpose of my life style (Jesus) that I became fulfilled. My savior is truly a void filler. That is why I am so in Love with Him.
When I encourage people to purchase my book, often I get the response, "I don't read." They have no idea how badly this sounds. During slavery the only thing a slave owner could get penalized for was teaching their slaves to read. And today many of us will not exercise our freedom or educate ourselves by simply reading.
