Therefore encourage one another and edify one another, just as you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11

A Birthday Blessing.

Today I will celebrate my birthday. I am so grateful the Lord let me live to see another year. He has brought me through a lot of things and I am thankful because He didn't have to do it. I feel truly blessed because He loves me so much that He has allowed me the freedom to continue on here on earth.

I have had several people ask me what I want or what do I want to do for my birthday and my answer was surprising to some. I just want to celebrate life.

I would like to thank everyone for their birthday wishes through phone calls, cards, emails, text, chat etc. I tried to respond to everyone individually, but just in case I missed someone. I am extremely happy you all of thought of me.

Thank You God

I am so thankful for the wonderful people God is placing in my life. I am so greatful for each and everyone of you who offers support for Sisters Of Honor in any way. No role is taken lightly.

Thank you to Sister Gwen Stovall for the opportunity to share with your listeners about Sisters Of Honor Networking Group. I am so greatful for our paths crossing. You have been extremely helpful. You are truly an inspiration.

It is awesome to know those who are willing to reach out and help someone. It really shows your true character. You are willing to help others grow in the things of God.

I ask each of you to please reach out to someone. Make it one of your priorities. You never know who may gain strength and encouragement from you. It may be as simple as one word "hello". Touch someone's life.

So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 (New Living Translation)

Birthday Breakfast

I would like to share some photos from our Birthday Breakfast for those who celebrate their Birthdays in the month of April. Sorry I don't know what happened to the other photos. We had an awesome time. On the way out, we decided to get some dessert.

A hater is someone who is jealous and envious and spends
all their time trying to make you look small so they can look tall.

They are very negative people to say the least. Nothing is ever good enough!

When you make your mark, you will always attract some haters...

That's why you have to be careful with whom you share
your blessings and your dreams, because some folk can't
handle seeing you blessed...

It's dangerous to be like somebody else... If God
wanted you to be like somebody else, He would have given you what He gave them! Right?

You never know what people have gone through to get what they have...
The problem I have with haters is that they see my glory, but they don't know my story...
If the grass looks greener on the other side of the
fence, you can rest assured that the water bill is higher there too!

We've all got some haters among us!

Some people envy you because you can:
a) Have a relationship with God
b) Light up a room when you walk in
c) Start your own business
d) Tell a man / woman to hit the curb (if he / she isn't about the right thing)
e) Raise your children without both parent being in the home

Haters can't stand to see you happy.
Haters will never want to see you succeed.

Most of our haters are people who are supposed to be on our side.

How do you handle your undercover haters?

You can handle these haters by:

1. Knowing who you are & who your true friends are (VERY IMPORTANT!!)
2. Having a purpose to your life:
Purpose does not mean having a job. You can have a job and still be unfulfilled.
A purpose is having a clear sense of what God has called you to be.
Your purpose is not defined by what others think about you.
3. By remembering what you have is by divine prerogative and not human manipulation.

Fulfill your dreams! You only have one life to live...when its your time to leave this earth, you 'want' to be able to say, 'I've lived my life and fulfilled 'my' dreams,... Now I'm ready to go HOME!

When God gives you favor, you can tell your haters,
'Don't look at me...Look at Who is in charge of me...'

~Maya Angelou

Please don't take this poem and boast about having some "Haters". Continue to pray for them. You must always react with a Christ like attitude.

Just a little Encouragement.

Today's post is to encourage everyone to be the best YOU that you can be. Do not let other's dictate your future. God knows the plans He has for you. So, why listen to those who don't want to see you succeed? Everyone does not have your best interest at heart. Be very careful who you let into your circle. They may conduct themselves as though they are happy for you and want the best for you, but deep inside they may really have a hidden agenda. Then you have those who are only in your life for a season. It is very important to know when that season is up and do not try to hang onto someone because God maybe removing them from your life. It could be a family member or a friend. Just remain prayerful and He will reveal it to you.

God knows the desires of your heart. As long as you seek Him first in all you do, everything else will fall into place. He will either equip you to perform the assignment or He will send someone in to your life to help you carry out the vision He has given to you. Continue to pray for guidance and wisdom to make the right decisions.

NEVER Let Negativity Control You!!!

Blessed to Be a Blessing!

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not shouting "I'm clean livin''
I'm whispering 'I was lost,
Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble
and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and
need His strength to carry on.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and
need God to clean my mess.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible but,
God believes I am worth it.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches,
so I call upon His name.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner
Who received God's good grace, somehow! "
— Maya Angelou

A Little Sluggish Today

This morning when I woke up I was feeling a little sluggish. Of course in my mind, I'm thinking I have too much to do today to not be feeling well. I began thinking about how we often let our feelings get the best of us. Do you ever feel like you are too tired to move? Too tired to talk? Too tired to pray? Now what if God was too tired to move on your behave? Have you ever stopped to think about that? Just like you will move when you are hungry. Yes, you could be tired, but I'm sure you're not too tired to eat.

Never get too tired for God. He is always faithful to us. Why can't we return the favor He has given us?

Declare today that no matter how you may feel you will always give Him time.

Until next time.

Be Blessed!

Why Worry?

Are you worrying about your job, finances, food, clothing, etc.? It's understandable because we all worry about something at some point in our lives, but that doesn't make it right. God knows your every need and He will provide. Philippians 4:19 "My God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."
Matthew 6:25-27 "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?"

I'm sure you have heard the saying Don't Worry, Be Happy. If you put your trust in the Lord and believe with all your heart that He will provide, He will bring you happiness. Has worrying about a situation ever changed your circumstances? Has anything good ever come out of worrying? When you worry, it can cause you to react when maybe all you need to do is be still and wait. Psalm 46:10 "Be still and know that I am God"

I challenge you today if you are worrying about something or in need, take it to God in prayer. There is no problem that is too big or small for God to handle. Philippians 4:6 "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."
Philippians 4:7 "And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Matthew 11:28-30 "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
