“Friends”, & How many do I need?


Elevation requires separation…….from the wrong people- Sadie Daily

I was listening to a radio show the other week, and the conversation on the “friendship” subject stuck out to me.

The host stated that we are one friend a way from changing our destiny

Hmmmm, so I got to thinking about how people pour value into our lives. Some people can pour positive energy, while other people can drain the life out of you!

Here are 2 types of friendships you need in your life:

  1. A friend that helps you find strength in God. #Spiritual strength is what will keep you pushing even through the dark times. We are humans, and it is hard to fix our “problems”, yet with strength from God, there is no battle you can’t win!
  2. The friend that always tells you the truth. There is a difference between a friend putting you down because of jealousy or fear, and a friend that gives constructive, honest, unbiased criticism to make you better. Find someone who will tell you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear.

All of these friendships traced back to biblical times. The days we are living in, make it so easy to accept friends online. While it is nice to grow your network, it is always good to strive for deeper than the surface level relationships.

Hopefully you have the two types of friends I mentioned in your circle. If you don’t, just keep living and know that you are 1 friend a way from changing your life!

Gracefully Appreciating!

I find it easy to get ungrateful for things, especially small things. I am so use to having shoes, I don’t remember ever a time when I didn’t have shoes. Like I just wake up and know I will have access to a pair of shoes. Now I never am claiming to be rich, I may not have always had a name brand pair, but a pair of shoes at least.

Imagine complaining about shoes we have that aren’t the latest edition…while there is someone who can’t wear shoes because of a lost of a foot or feet, crazy right? So the value of a $1000 shoe next to a body part missing is greater??…..hmmm lets do some thinking here…..do you value having something flashy, versus just being grateful you are able to walk?

When we get used to things our appreciation almost deteriorates in a sense because we don’t value it as much. We don’t appreciate our lives, granted that we are created to share and inspire, we don’t value ourselves by what we indulge in and accept….what I am getting at is that we simply have lost our will of thankfulness.

Thank God more! 

We don’t value our neighbors, we don’t value the work being put on behind the scenes that make everything flow. Taking for granted every mechanism around us, will shake us when that one piece is missing, or if we are to ever go with out. We recognize something is missing when that part, or member stops functioning more than when we had it because of our mindsets of expectations.

We expect things to happen! 

Having to have gone without makes you appreciate more, and having to sacrifice and know of someone who has sacrificed for you to have something, makes you appreciate it all the more. Our freedom lies on the shoulders of someone who worked hard so that we didn’t have to, yet we get in an ungrateful mode of being used to OUR way. What if you woke up and had no shoes, while complaining that we don’t have a pair of “red bottoms” (Louboutin). Just like anything in life, we don’t own any of it, in the blink of an eye God can remove people, and those things you “value”, then what?

Appreciate what you have, be thankful for what God has done, and make daily affirmations of what will be by speaking favor! 

Be thankful now and appreciate everyone moment, &&  accept those blessings not because of being good and deserving but because of GRACE

Peace & Love

What we live in……


We live in a generation that always proclaims nobody is loyal, trust nobody, people play games, its hard to find somebody genuine, there is no thing such as true love anymore. Well if we are believers, we believe in this very crazy thing called love. Love never fails, it believes all things, and hopes all things. Yes love endures, it is not provoked, and it does not behave rudely. Love (suffers long), I see I may have lost some people by now. See we want to experience love, but are we truly ready to bear and endure for it? Love does not envy, and rejoices in the truth. I believe there is a difference in mature love and childish love, playing games are for children. If you want to experience love you have to deal with good days and bad, and not lose faith. I always admire seeing older couples and wonder their secret, I can imagine, the key word Love has a major part in it. So before you continue regarding love in a negative manner, check your heart. Are you genuine? Be true to your self and allow God to intercede on your behalf.

Peace & Love

Grace is sufficient

Without grace where would we be?? I mean we all have fallen short, due to the fact that nobody perfect exists. Yet it is amazing how God allows us to turn our mistakes into messages.
Readers, Do not be so harsh on yourself, let God use your mistakes to bring glory to him. Grace over our lives, gives us this undeserving, unworthy, unwavering favor. Its not that I have been an angel, perfect, and never wronged anyone for any blessings I receive.
Grace means simply, I have sinned and I probably will sin again because I am imperfect, but God being perfect loves me so much that he forgives me, that, I know you did wrong, I will love you regardless kind of love.

Isn’t that amazing to know that we are loved that much?? This truly is humbling and should not be taken lightly, by getting into a mindset of let me do what I want to, God will forgive, yet strive to be like God, and understand in your stumbling you have grace that will take you purposely where you need to be.

In light of Beyonce` performing for SuperBowl


Are you living or just existing?

“He’s calling me to go deeper”


This post was inspired by the song Deeper- By Marvin Sapp. When I listen to this song, and actually meditate on the lyrics it makes me think about those times when we really want to throw the towel in and quit. It is easy to give up when we feel so much pressure, and allow doubt to come in our minds. Yet the best way to look at a difficult situation is to have Faith beyond what we see.  All of the tests and trials that we go through in life are making us stronger. It is comforting to know that God is bigger than what we are going through. It takes patience to realize that when you feel defeated, you will never win and come out on top if you do not try. It’s like we do not feel that we can do what God is calling us to do because we are afraid of making a mistake. We are not perfect but we can try.  Do not let your fear of not being perfect or good enough to do something outweigh your faith in God.

With God all things are possible. As long as we try, God sincerely knows our heart so whatever we may think we lack in knowledge, talent, abilities, etc. God has us covered. It gets hard when we only limit our selves to what we are capable of doing when we are looking with our own natural eyes, instead of spiritually seeing all of the things God is able to do if we allow him to use us.  Yes you can allow sin, worry about finances, disappointment, and other distractions to take over or you can allow God to take over.

Do not be afraid when God wants to use you, accept his calling to go deeper whether it is him calling you to be a Pastor/Evangelist, mentor, or if he is calling you to new heights in your career or spiritual life…..

Go Deeper!

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

-Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

Opportunity to Help


Every saint has a past just like how every sinner has a future. Be careful before you judge someone or make assumptions about them because you don’t know where they have been and are going through. We have to keep that in mind that just because we may have sunny days now doesn’t mean clouds and rain won’t come. Ever realize how when you are going through a storm, God is right there to comfort us so that when our fellow sisters/brothers are in the middle of a storm we can comfort them. Instead of trying to point fingers and criticize people, pray and roll up your sleeves and help them. There are so many opportunities to help others, we just have to pray for availability and wisdom to be a blessing to others. It is truly rewarding, and its not always monetary, because an encouraging word can change someone elses day, even strengthen faith in someone lost. I feel that we as people on Earth are so powerful and can change so many things if we try not to conform to things of the world, but be transformed by the word. As you go out on your days keep in mind that if it was not for God’s grace and mercy we would be tore up and broken. I am so humbled and in awe how HE can turn what many might see as a sinning tragedy into a testimony, a dark ugly past into a masterpiece. So before you use your tongue to talk down on someone because they sin differently than you, remember who the JUDGE is and who brought you out of your mess.

I hope you all have a great week

Remember to Keep Him on Your Mind and Guard Your Tongue

Hide or Go Seek


Call me old fashion, but I have always heard that the man is suppose to come after the woman. He is suppose to seek her. Yet while women are waiting for their husband to find them we must be preparing and getting ready. How can you always want to be with someone or in a relationship and you can not stand your own company. Running in to the streets trying to find Mr. Right we are going to be looking run down and miss Mr Right chasing these Mr. Wrongs. Be patient the right one will come along until then don’t settle and don’t forget to keep God first. ‘A woman’s heart should be so close to God, that a man should have to chase HIM to find her.’ I feel that as long as you keep God first and that is the main focus of who you are seeking you can’t go wrong.

Have a great week!
