#SundayService#KanyeWestandTheSundayServiceCollective#JesusisKing: MY Experience

Beloved,

Hope this finds you well.  I was blessed to attend the “mission” this past Sunday at Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas. It’s no secret that I absolutely love Jesus, and like Paul, I’m totally unashamed of the gospel.  He’s at the center of this platform, and I thank Him daily for my life, health, and strength.  Without Him, I’m nothing and can’t imagine what my life would be like if I didn’t accept Him as my own personal Lord and Savior. Pause…I had to give Him the glory first. Now, buckle up because I won’t be before you long.

First of all, it was definitely an experience. I loved everything about it. To be in God’s presence at anytime is a win-win, whether spending an evening with Kanye, and the Sunday Service Collective, at my weekly church service, in my car, my office, or at home. 🙂 I’m always down to be wherever He is.  In His presence, there’s love, joy, and peace.  Outside of His eternal presence, is the agony of eternal Fire. Whew chile, that’s not what I want do you? Ponder that, and make up your mind.  Time is truly of the essence!

Hopefully by now, I have your full attention and will close out here.  I’m excited for Kanye, his family, and all of the souls he’s won to or back to Jesus.  Heaven is rejoicing and so am I.  It saddens me to see, hear, or read all of the negativity behind it, but the record is blazing.  From my perspective, there’s only one righteous judge and we all shall give an account for everything we say and do (Romans 14:12, Matthew 12:36).  Man looks on the outside, but God knows the heart, (I Samuel 16:7).  So push through, Kanye and cheers to all of you who decide to follow Jesus! Oh and to witness my kids, and husband freely praising and worshiping God is always a blessing. With all this being said, Jesus truly is King!

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever, (Hebrews 13:8, KJV). 

Until we meet again, I love you to life!

#WarriorMoment

Being vulnerable and transparent is never easy and may lead to an emotional explosion of negativity in our thoughts and heart. The greater good is being in complete service to our God by bringing glory to His name, and helping to pull others out of they’re pit, problem, or circumstance. From one warrior to the next, we’ve got this. Begin again.

xoxo,

Hello April!

Greetings Beloved,

I thought I would do us both a favor and check-in. :). Oh how I’ve missed thee! You must know that you’re always in my prayers.  How was the first quarter of 2019? Are you on track in reference to your relationship with God?  What about with yourself? With others? Life and all that it brings can be difficult to manage sometimes. How do you manage? Cope? When life is not going your way, what do you resort to?  Do you act on sinful impulses? Do you resist the devil? Or even yourself?  Come here self-control!  There’s more to that, but we’ll talk about that another day, shall we?

13 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone;14but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their OWN evil desire and enticed.15 Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death (James 1:13-15, NIV).

Now back to the matter at hand.  Friends, no matter what pit, problem, or circumstance we may face, we’re not alone.  God loves us and He’s always ready to help. Remember to focus on one day at a time and begin your day in His presence. It’s then and only then that you will have peace in accomplishing what you do.  Why?  Because it’s already in His will and plan for your life. Until we meet again, I love you to life!

Who Am I?

Beloved,

Who am I?  I am a daughter of the Most High God.  I have full assurance in knowing that I am reaping on Earth/and will reap the eternal benefits of being a believer in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  In Him, I know that I’m loved, valued, accepted, appreciated, validated, and most of all forgiven among many other things.  Friends, who exactly are you?

2018: Before I Let You Go…

Beloved,

I’ve been hitting you with a few #WarriorMoments here and there, but I wanted to drop a few lines of encouragement.  As we usher in a New Year, keep becoming the change that you wish to see in the world.  I know it’s a stretch and others may not understand it.  However, it’s not for anyone to understand but you and God.  Stay within the safety of humility, and elevation is bound to happen.

Don’t create another resolution.  Instead, focus on one day at a time and begin your day in His presence.  Try it, and watch what happens in your day.  It’s then and only then that you will have peace in accomplishing what you do.  Why?  Because it’s already in His will and plan for your life. 🙂 Until we meet again, I love you to life, and I’m looking forward to what 2019 has in store for us all!

Because of the Lord’s faithful love we do not perish 
for His mercies never end. They are new every morning;
great is Your faithfulness (Lamentations 3:22-23, HCSB).

xoxo,

#WarriorMoment

Being honest with God, ourselves, and others about where we are in this thing called life is important.  It’s then and only then that we can face our own struggles, deal with them, and truly transform through the power of God.

#WarriorMoment

Praying for/with all of those that have lost loved ones during this holiday season. Release everything but the positive impact that your loved one had on your life, and the precious memories created.  There’s going to be a time where the phone will stop ringing, and the cards, and flowers will go away.

Don’t be discouraged, though.  You’re not alone and God will always be there to mend, fill, heal, and repair your broken heart. Keep and create a healthy space to be human.  Shed those tears.  Process every emotion that you feel.  Notice I said in a healthy way. Trust the process and in YOUR time you will have the strength to move forward.

 

xoxo,
