When Praises Go Up

I believe in the power of the word. I believe in the power of the lord. I believe in speaking positivity, growth, and blessings into my life. I'm not afraid, the devil has no power over me. I'm working harder then I was meant to work, because I understand if I praise God beyond my level, God will unleash blessings to me today, that were meant for me 5, 10 years from now. I understand that I have the power to change my story, through praise. I understand that I have the power to bless myself through my own words. I understand that I can wrestle with God for my blessings, in the same way Jacob did. When you know your power, and understand that God is the way maker. There's no need to acknowledge the devil. Because he can't make things happen that God won't allow. He has to ask for permission. So why continue to fuss with the middle man, the wanna be. When you can go to the creator and discuss your future.  Your going through it right now, I hear you. Push,fight, and Praise. Don't settle for just making it. Push yourself like a crazy person, because you know your condition is not your circumstance, and that your circumstance is not your condition. God has a future for you, that is waiting to be claimed. No need to wait 30 years for that blessing, praise your way through it!

   

No Pressure - Just a DevotionAL

Hey Guys,

It's been such a while. So much has happened since we last chatted. I got a makeup regiment. Got a promotion. Have drawn closer to God. Taking more accountability. Learning how to take authority in my life (Kingdom Authority). Got a quick trip to Aruba in. Spent the summer with my youngest nephew. I've been meeting good, new interesting people.

  

As time has progressed I've started to conform to doing God's work. Not sure what that means for me yet. But let's do it. With that in mind, I'm shifting the direction of this blog. We're transitioning to a devotional. I've been trying to figure out how I can spend more time with God. I read the bible, but I don't cling to it. (I know I should, but I don't). I know a few of my friends have daily devotionals that they follow. So I figured why don't I use my blog as a means to talk to God. Mind you I'm still reading the bible Ohhhh! Not a substitution for that.

Alright stay blessed!

Reflections

So this week I achieved something in a few hours that I could not achieve these past two years. For the past two years I've been praying to God for a specific thing. After I'd pray, I would do things that I thought positioned me towards attaining what I prayed for but saw no progress. Finally Tuesday, I got frustrated and questioned God. After venting, I took a step back, and said I know whose I am. God wouldn't place me in a position to settle. So I decided to change my approach. I decided to start giving out, what I was praying to receive. I intentionally set a goal that morning, to give my time so that someone else would benefit from it. While in the process of execution, I received a call that day about what I had prayed for. By 3pm the following day I had received it. Lesson learned. God calls us to be obedient, to be self sacrificing. If you find that you are praying and that your prayers haven't been answered. Take a step forward, and ask yourself, what are you doing for the world.Take ownership of your prayers and put them to action by blessing someone, because your faith tells you that your blessing is coming. God is accountable.

Meditate


Meditate on this. Please don't mind me, lol. Hey Guys. I'm super beat. As in exhausted. This week I joined my churches praise dance group. So the group consists of the teacher, and me, lol. Outside of work, and other things, it's surprising that I'd make room for that.

So, after work each day, I've headed to church to practice for 2 hours plus, for an upcoming event. But I can't front. Being on a praise dance team, has been one of my aspirations for a while. So here we go... I actually wanted to write about my experience with the team, and my church. However, I'm too tired to go through the process of recapping some events, crafting it into a story, and then pushing the underline message forth, lol. That will be for another day. No shade to me.

However today, I just want to encourage you. Whoever you are. Your more than a conqueror. Your beyond just being satisfied, just making it, and being an over comer. You are the head, a trail blazer, creator, dynamic, effervescent... The unstoppable spark, Gods Gold, his chosen. His beloved. So stop wasting time on what God didn't intend for you. Let's focus on you. :-)

Cheers

Fashion on holiday to Martinique

Cover-ups and swimsuits. That sums up my vaca attire in Martinique.
On average the temperature was 88 degrees Fahrenheit. You could literally wake up at 1/2 am in the morning and enjoy a comfortable 75 degrees by the water. So naturally I dressed very light. I can't review much on the fashion there. Since I was part of a group, most of the activities we had, were tailored to and attracted tourists. So on the next visit, as I become more acclimated, we'll see whose who, in fashion.

Hey Guys...

So this trip was all about me! I enjoyed my company, enjoyed my shine, and just rested. 
I heard about this trip a month and a half ago. At that time, I was itching to travel. We were nearly a quarter of the year in, and I had nothing on the agenda, no plans, no provisions set aside, nada. I even reached out to friends and family to try and set something up, but no one was available. And through divine connection, God connected me to a friend who was curating a trip to the islands. A food tour in Martinique. At first glance,  I squinted my eyes at it a little bit. Then I go, Wait! Martinique, villa, food tour. I'm in. Done. No regrets.

While there, I had spotty wireless, so I couldn't stream any videos. Plus my Iphone battery drained too quickly to listen to music beyond 20 minutes. Seriously. Thus I spent every morning watching the sunrise with Jesus. I did a bit of reading early mornings. I actually have been reading the New Testament. So I got through a few books, and another book  (Prevail by Cindy Trimm), at least half way.

This was a very blessed trip. I drank rum most of the days (sorry to those who are offended), cracked jokes, played with my feet in the water, and enjoyed 80 degree days. The views of the landscape were beautiful, my pictures do them no justice.

I want to thank God for doing a good thing in me. Through you God I've overcome my baggage, and your confidence shines within me, and is reflected through me. Jesus I love you!
