Are You Multiplying What’s In The Kingdom

This past Sunday I had the pleasure of listening to a guest speaker at my Church Tracey Mitchell. The important thing that stood out from this profound message were “Success is far more difficult than struggle”. She states so many of us are always asking God for more, when you can’t even mange what is already in your hand. Because during your season of struggle the only person that you have to take care of; is you. Your money, your time, your health, your wealth. But when you step into the arena of success you are not just depending on opening the door for yourself ; now you have to open the door for someone else. You have to manage their payroll, you don’t only have to worry about your family, but you have to worry about theirs. So if we are struggling to manage seasons that are not successful then why should we pray for God to enlarge our order if we can’t manage what is in our now.

God is Grace he gives us warm up moments on the side stage, before he ever places us on the main stage. We can always learn from our seasons of dry/struggle/desert because what you learn from those seasons prepare for seasons of increase. “There’s a part of you that wants more but also fears increase. God told Moses to confront what you fear. Industrious  people produce Vision-less people consume.  God is taking your dream and is placing it on steroids.”

God is about to stretch your increase and the devil /enemy will make you look as if your increase is nothing or little and try to little your faith in increase. The purpose of increase in not to give us more, but to advance the Kingdom of God. We get so happy from what we catch from the kingdom but we never make yardage for it. The Lord is teaching us how to be receivers, but then he is going to teach us how to be a MULTIPLIER. Receiving without multiplying equals failure. If we are constantly receiving blessings from the Lord and are not using our blessing, gifts,  to help benefit others then it has been a failure, example of this is Sampson — he didn’t manage himself, he didn’t understand when the holly spirit left him; therefore he was robbed of his strength.

You will never experience increase without conflict. There is something in every battle you should walk away with to bring with you into your next season. Every season you should leave the battle with an upgrade in your arsenal. This is very important for the battle that we fight against the enemy. What you pick up in this season will equip you with something better for the next season. As your anointing increases so will your critics. Tracey states  “I am about to double down on your anointing” as the crowd applaud.

Increase demands you see yourself differently. You can’t suddenly expect to shift into a new season and have no sounds or tremors. Meaning there will always be some bumps in the road when you are making a change to dig deeper and choose God over evil. The enemy does not like this and there will be trials and tribulations, but don’t worry you have a built up arsenal and you are not afraid to use them, you are the head and not the tail. When you step into this new season there are people who will bet against your sustainability of the new you, don’t you worry you know God has you and you will not fail.

Pray that Jesus continue to guide your path and remember are you Multiplying what Jesus have given you or are you just a Receiver?

Being Grateful for The Little Things!!

IMG_20170714_172413_510

A picture may say a thousand words, but just in that moment the feeling of love, the feeling of hopefulness, the feeling of happiness, gratefulness for all that God has blessed you with. When I came back home and started to think about my missionary visit to Haiti, I was filled with different kinds of emotions. First and foremost I created a bond that can never be broken with amazing people over in Haiti. I will forever have a Haiti family, forever Haiti will be my second home. The people are so kind, so happy, so welcoming, very hard working.

As I prepare myself to do as much as possible, in the time constraints that we have during our mission I can’t help but feel sadden to see the living conditions of the people in Haiti, the cooking conditions, the health or lack of healthcare for the people of Haiti in the countryside. Still with all these things against them they are GRATEFUL. Just for the little things that we did or said, such as a smile, a hug, a craft activity that we did during the day with the women, young girls, and all other children that attended vacation bible school.

The Haitian community was GRATEFUL for the snack that was provided during VBS, for the vision clinic that we provided, the medical clinic that provide so much needed care in Haiti. There were so many children with open wounds from walking in feces and contaminated water. For me and my team of doctors to be able to dress the wounds made me feel blessed and humble. I felt like God has really sent me where he wanted me to go and I was so glad I accepted the challenge.

Shoes that grow were also given to every child, feeling absolutely humble that I could be apart of something like this; was amazing. Having each child receive shoes this can very well be the start of decreasing infections in children, decreasing injury in children’s feet, and decreasing open wounds on feet & legs. The children were so GRATEFUL to receive backpack for back to school. These backpacks weren’t just your regular backpacks, these were filled with school supplies for the children to get a head start on school.

In Haiti there is this saying “There is always room for one more.” I can hear that in my head as I sit and type the words on the screen. I can hear our friend Wilnot saying it and smiling as we all pile up on the back of the truck; stock with supplies, and anywhere from ten to twelve people. You don’t have to worry we have an EXCELLENT driver, that knows the lay of the land before and after the rain. It doesn’t matter if it’s on the back of trucks in Haiti or on the back of a motorcycle, there is always room for one more. Motorcycles are a popular mode of transportation in Haiti due to the unpaved roads, ditches, holes, mountainous terrains, and steep slopes. On motorcycles, we would see up to six people on one bike, making their daily trips to the market, to the river to take a bath, do laundry, or to work in their own garden if they have one.

As I watched the women of Haiti cook in very harsh conditions my heart felt sad. As a person that knows the dangers of what the women were exposing themselves to, I had wished I could do more.  How could I do more, I am just one person, one women, one missionary; for now I will be grateful that God has bless me with the opportunity to be with the women of Haiti. The women were so happy to greet us and show us how their culture prepare meals. It was so awesome to see the chicken being prepared in the big cast iron pot under the three stones and wood fire. Being GRATEFUL seeing the rice and spices being freshly mixed and prepared the same way, but in another room next door.

Coming home and looking back on my trip I feel like telling the world about my experiences. Sure this short story doesn’t scratch the surface of what I experienced and what was given to me by the people of Haiti. I was given so much, a new found appreciation on life. When I look at what people are complaining about; that had not lost a home to a hurricane, or a natural disaster, but just your normal complaining people I feel sad, very sad, but GRATEFUL all at the same time because I am blessed to have the things that so many people take for granted.

The things that people take for granted until they don’t have to live without it, can be something as simple as their home. There are so many people in Haiti living up to nine people in a two bedroom home. When I say home it consist of a dirt floor, no electric, no plumbing, no communication, no water (unless there is a nearby well & someone can fetch water), no beds or maybe one or two, and a straw roof (not tin, some people try to work or get sponsored in order to receive a tin roof). Other things that are taken for granted is having healthcare in the U.S. Yes, for some people it may not be the best healthcare for the individual, but they have healthcare and are able to get services when needed unlike many, many Haitians.

We as Americans don’t think about how blessed we are often enough, we hardly greet people we don’t even know, as opposed to Haitian’s love to greet and welcome you with a smile. We leave the water on while brushing our teeth, taking long and excessive showers not thinking about how blessed we are to have clean water, and drinkable water. We think that we need all the new and expensive cars, home, jewelry, shoes, and clothing in reality none of that matters if you are not first and foremost giving God the honor and praises he deserved for blessing you with all the things that you do have. The things that you have are because of him Jesus Christ and none other. So I ask you next time you don’t have something that you think you deserve….think again and be GRATEFUL for the little things in life.

Be GRATEFUL for the little things, peanut butter sandwich, love, laughter, friends (stateside & faraway), music, long truck rides, prayer and the breath of life.

I Think I Can…I Think I Can….

It’s funny how you can read someone’s else’s blog and be inspired to keep on blogging. It doesn’t really matter what you are blogging about as long as you are letting your fingers do the walking. The sound of your fingers hitting the keyboard, every so often hitting the back space for correction, making sure your words are grammatically correct thank God for the inspiration.

I think I can….I think I can is what am saying tonight to the thought that comes to me as I write here on my blog site. The thoughts that consume me of doing my best and never looking back. Thought that God has made me great in his image, therefore I am beautiful. I tell myself with this beauty I will protect it at all cost, because it doesn’t belong to me, it’s the property of another man’s, a man that is holy, holy, holy; a man that is God. For him I live and for him I die, what an Awesome God we serve or maybe it’s just me serving him all by myself. It’s okay the benefits are just as Awesome as he is if you just keep going.

I think I can…I think I can is what am saying tonight to the thought that comes to me as I read what I have written on my blog. Boy this is some serious stuff, but still consume with thoughts; thoughts of happiness that can never be broken no matter what I might go thru throughout my life, no matter what doors are open or shut, no matter what good days I have or bad days, I will still be ME. I will still be what God has intended me to be, what he has intended me to do, what he has intended me to tell others; about his love.

I KNOW I CAN….I KNOW I CAN do, say, ask, send me and I will go Father God, where your people are in need of help. Where there is no light in a dark place, send me I will go. Ask me and I will do it. Say what your will is and it shall be done Lord. It’s funny how some think we only exist because of the Big Bang Theory, that’s fine if that’s what you believe, I just believe that there is so much more to that AMAZING, AWESOME, WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, HOLY, HALLELUJAH & OUTRAGEOUS BANG!!!

Swimming, Sinking, and Sharks are around me!!!

Today was a rough day, you know one of those days where you just feel like ugh!! You try to work on things that need to get done, however life gives you no energy. You make important calls in hope’s that someone on the other end will answer. You send out important emails, that you hope will be returned.

Today was a rough day, you know the kind that makes you want to take a long soak in your jacuzzi tub. You makes calls to love ones, just to make sure they are still alive and well. You feel like you’re drowning without a life guard around.

You feel like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You have to be responsible for everything, anything, and anyone that evolves around you. Can life give you a break, is Jesus where you left him.

You left him in your prayer closet, why don’t you bring him out and talk to him. Great idea; Dear Jesus it’s me, your child. I am calling on you for all my needs. I submit to you and give you all I have to give. Dear Jesus I love you, what can I do for you today? You promised not to put more on me than I can bear, and at this moment I have reached my limit.

I can no longer swim, please throw me a life line. While waiting for the life line I will give you thanks, the honor, the glory, and praise because I know you have already handled the situation.

Today is not the day, but Jesus will have his way. You will not sink, you will be saved and to him, shall be the praise. So if you ever feel like a day is not your day, count your blessing, look around, take a deep breath and keep your head off the ground because my God has done everything already when he sent his son to die on the cross for you and I. So cheer up blessings and provisions are on there way.

They Grow So Fast…

They Grow So Fast….

Boy, it seems like it was yesterday that you were changing their diaper or putting them down for a nap, now you are helping them in deciding which college is the best fit for that long road ahead of them.  Thinking in your mind that all you could remember is your experience in college, all the hard work, all the studying, all the clinical you had to attend then you snap out of it. Keeping in mind now this is not you it’s your child, they want you there, but they don’t want you there. They want the independence of walking the campus themselves just a few feet in front of you asking the questions that they know that you would asking and looking back or over at you for the occasional approval. They grow up so fast, better not take your eye off of them because one minute your are tying their shoe the next minute you are being ask which outfit looks right. As you stroll down the hallways of the campus with your child on the way to the dorms you watch the eagerness in their eyes as they look on with the tour to see what lurks behind the college roommates dorm. Will there be a messy room or will it be clean? Shockingly the room was clean, the roommates offer information and your child is as eager as a kindergarten getting on the bus for the first time. Once all the information was given out verbally the tour leaves the room,  your child happy as can be tells you verbatim everything that was said inside the dorm, making sure not to skip a beat. You think to yourself God knew what you needed and he provided it; and as the day ended you and your family sat by the river and enjoyed the beautiful day the Lord made.

IF

IF
I am too dark with my writing for you Christians, what does that make me? Sorry, Oh wait I am not going to apologize for the dark writings in the soft pages of my matte novel I will not. I am an author, Yes a Christian author that has written a deep dark scary story that has made an uproar to the church. Read my disclaimer I knew not of any of you, when my novel was written & published; All I knew was God spoke to me. Yes God, the very being that so many Pastor’s, & Preacher’s claim speaks to them. All the Glory goes to God in writing my novel because #1 This will guide the mind of a person that has been through the same situation rather its male or female, it will allow them to talk to someone. #2 It will help others open a blind eye for a child that is getting molested or abused, for them to know the signs & symptoms so they can ask them about it an non threatening way. #3 If you are appalled by my writing, check your family history because down the line in your family some or many of the things may have happened and it’s time to address it now; the TRUTH hurts. #4 If a person has never been through the things in my book then May God reach out to you to help someone through Evangelism. Evangelism is where my heart is. So many church’s operate inside the four walls, you people that are in the four walls claim to be holier than thou. Come out and be disciples like God has called us to be, that’s what my novel is about and for anyone to judge it or me; I would be careful there is a God above that sits high and look low. I encourage EVERY one to read my novel “I Never Thought It Could Have Happen Book One: The Sisterhood” and think about the message it portrays not just a sleazy sex or violation scene.
I am a black, happy, married, mom of four children, grandmother of one, that is a Christian that loves the Lord Jesus Christ, that is not afraid to write about sex, murder, adultery, abuse, and whatever is covered in the Bible. If this is not for you, it’s not for you. Much Love!!

Church Vs Me

Do I expect you to understand my voice? Do you care what the message is trying to convey, or is your eyes only open to the sexual content of what is written on the soft off white pages of my thoughts? Are the thought that I bare from the fictional mind too HOLY for your EYES? Tell me why there has to be a separation between the Church and what is happening to someone, or a family everyday in America. Everyday we live with sexual assaults happening to someone we love if not ourself. Should the church not read about it? Everyday in American it’s a shame to see or hear that unmarried couples are having sex, and married couples stepping out on their partners; yes by the Bible this is a sin….Adultry to be exact. Does the church not want to read about life lessons that can maybe, just maybe help someone get thru a trying time in their life. Also having unlawful sex according to the Bible things can happen like having a child be born, what a wonderful thing to have happen; a child being born. Did you expect to read that we were going to kill the bastard child? No, that would create another sin called murder according to the Bible. Well in respect to all that I have said, yes I am a Christian and I love the Lord Jesus Christ and he leads my path. Don’t be my trial and jury I have Jesus Christ, his Father God, and The Holy Spirit for that. I will continue to do what God has giving me the gift to do, which is reach many to tell them about God, whether it’s thru my writing, praying, speaking, or any avenue God chooses not MAN.

Hustle

What does it mean to Hustle?

Having a foundation that begins with God and ends with God.

Having a Vision and wondering if it’s the one for you.

Thinking about how long will it take you to get there, who will be by your side in the darkest times.

What made you want to think that you could do this, should do this, and how dare you do this?

To Hustle, it means that you need to have thick skin for the many, many doors that will be closed in your face.

You must be equipped for the long hours and no sleep.

You think God has left your side because your Hustle is so hard; if he was with you then all the times you hit your knees he wouldn’t let you cry out like he does.

Your Hustle is real, it’s emotional, it’s hard, it’s yours and yours alone.

If I have to Hustle all the way to an Oscars, all the way to Oprah’s book club, and all the way to the Emmy’s, I will Hustle that’s for me and my God to decide.

Hustle,

Would Anyone Cared If I Died?

Would Anyone care if I died?

Would anyone blink a eye?

Would anyone comfort the family that’s left behind to pick up the pieces?

Would anyone say she was a great person or will they say she wasn’t?

Would they gossip and say they saw this coming?

Would they say she wasn’t strong enough to get through the trials and tribulations of this world, rather hang on she took things into her own hands?

Would they cast judgement and say right to HELL she goes?

So many people in this world today suffer from depression and pain from many, many reasons. It is up to us as family, friends, adults, children of Christ to be there to comfort, support, listen, visit, call, and just have some kind of contact with an individual. Writing on a Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and leaving text messages sometimes are not enough.

When a person is going through a tough time in their life a face to face visit speaks louder than words. It hurts even more to think that you are alone, to think that God, our Father in Heaven has forsaken you, has abandon you in your time of need. I know a person of FAITH believes in the father and that he would NEVER leave you or forsake you.

The trials and tribulations we will go through, are these just to make us stronger? Or are these to separate the weak from the strong. God has a plan and it doesn’t include us taking our own life, taking something that doesn’t belong to us, taking what is his. So I ask you again would anyone cared if I died?

The answer is YES JESUS would, he LOVES ME even if  no one else does. I am his child and he wants the best for me, he will see me through the tough times. Without any test in life I would not have a testimony and with out the mess that I go through in life I would not have a message to share with you. Life is what it is life pain, suffering, hardships, fun, laughter, disappointments, ups, and downs but through it all we will prevail with prayer, trust, faith and above all loving God and yourself.
