Faith Talk

Genesis 17:6 And I will make you exceedingly fruitful and I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you.

Newsflash! I deserve God’s best because simply put… God says I do! So when I talk about flying on a private jet, having all of my needs met, owning a vacation spot in St. Barts, and having a shoe closet full of Louboutins… please don’t question why I have to have all that. My answer will forever remain the same … “Because I serve a limitless God that can orchestrate the manifestation of my limitless desires.” Now, are these are material things? YES… Is that all that I desire… NO. However, I don’t get much push back when I say things like… “I walk in divine health all the days of my life”… or that “my family is free from all attacks of the enemy, especially addictive behaviors.” No one has anything to say about that but it’s something about material possessions that has people tripping. I know I’m not the only Christian that likes nice things. I’m not saying that everyone has the same desires either… I adore shoes but not everyone does… I get that! But if barely making ends meet is the best you see for yourself than so be it… As for me, I don’t serve an average God so I don’t intend to live an average lifestyle!! Continue reading

TAPPING INTO THE “WHY”

So this past Saturday I reluctantly dragged myself out of bed at 6:45 a.m., dressed myself in the required business attire, and headed out the door to a mandatory ministry of helps meeting at my church. It’s only a few Saturdays out of the year that we do this but that particular Saturday was a struggle for me. Everything in me wanted to cover my head and sleep in. BUT I gave my word that I would attend so that sealed the deal for me. I knew it would be worth my time once I got there but I had no idea it would be all that it turned out to be! In three hours I came away with so much to help me grow as a person, not just a believer. It was all about how to best represent yourself as an open, approachable, and welcoming person so that you remain a gateway for building spiritual relationships. As the guest speaker spoke, I began to analyze myself and I came up with one undeniable fact… I’m none of those things!! Haha Continue reading

Beyond Your Heart

You ever wonder why the desires of the world seem so much more desirable? I mean really, why is it so difficult for us to accept all that comes with living a Christian lifestyle? It seems like the moment you make the decision to change just one small aspect of your life, your mind gets flooded with all of the things you think you will miss out on if you truly carry out that decision. It can be so frustrating when you set out to do anything in life and seemingly fail. I mean, letting yourself and your family down is disappointing enough, but when you think about the possibility of letting God down…that’s a whole different level. So what do many of us do?… We shy away from the thought of doing what we feel we can’t for fear of failing God. There’s a certain confidence that we have in ourselves that we know we’ll eventually bounce back from our own disappointment. There’s another level of confidence we have in our family because we know that their disappointment will only last for a moment and they will always have our backs. So how can we develop that same confidence in God? Continue reading
