Day 4 Talk to God

Its time to get to know the God you serve! No one wants to be in a one way relationship, the same goes for God. Today call out to God, ask God to teach you how to be in a balanced relationship with Him. God loves you and I enough to allow us to choose Him, cry out in honesty..but then listen to His cry. Peace

Crying Out to God
I Call Upon You, Lord
I Call Upon You Lord – Jeremiah 33:3
Heavenly Father I come to You in Jesus Christ’s Holy Name. I surrender myself to You, Heavenly Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Your Word says in Jeremiah 33 verse 3 to call upon You and You will show me great and mighty things that I do not know. Lord God I come to You and cry out, I surrender all to You. I call unto You, God Creator of Heaven and Earth, I ask You to show me great and mighty things, of the unfathomable riches of Your glory and splendor, all that You are, help me and cause me to plumb the depth of Your Being and know You, I worship You, I praise Your Holy Name, Blessed be Your Holy Name, amen


Do you TRUST God?

c771783be6498a5be767f2867e363c79What happens when we stop looking for God to lead us to what we need and realize that God is all that we need?  Imagine putting all the energy we use to find “ourselves” into finding our creator; what then would we look like? What would we stress about, what would we fight against? If you want to be a great lover why not go to God who is love, if you want to be a better friend why not mirror the only friend who would die for you Jesus Christ, if you want to be creative why not become buddies with the creator of the universe.  The answer to your joy, peace, promotion, demise, it’s all in God. So, why do we stay so far away from the key to it all? Because we don’t know any better and life lies to us. Life tells us not to put all of our eggs in one basket but that is man’s rule, not Gods. I have finally come to a place in life where if it’s not God I don’t want it. He is the egg, the basket, the hand that puts into it and the hand that takes out of it. So now I pose a very honest question, do you really believe in the God you say you believe in? If not what’s holding you back? Find it, and ask God to conquer that fear, hesitation, and mistrust because the truth is life is despicable without God. Peace



I want to scream!

How do I function when all hell is breaking loose in my life???? The only way you can release the power of God in your life is to get to know God. The point of prayer and praise is to invoke intimacy between you and God. Without God, you have no line of defense. The next time you feel alone like it’s you against the world, look around and see if you are truly the only one on your team. Have you invited God into your thought, actions, care or time? God is not going to be somewhere He is not welcome. If hell is breaking loose in your life ask God to join you in hell! Give Him the time, energy, and consideration He deserves and watch your life change for the better.




can you see?

What does the authentic you look like? When you close your eyes who do you see in the mirror. Life is a constant jungle gym and requires moments of reflection. Don’t give life the opportunity to shadow your character, dreams, or aspirations. Who you are meant to be wants to beam through any job, problem, or situation. Struggle makes it harder to see the correct choice or road to take at times, but if you stay the course you will eventually see the path you should be traveling. Failure is often seen as the end but it is actually a wonderful indication that in spite of life’s effort, you are pressing forward. Continue to move, continue to dream, continue to close your eyes and see the real you. Peace.

The power in transition

Psalms 91:2 says “I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God in Him will I trust.” The end of the scripture catches my attention the most, my God in Him will I trust. The end of verse 2 acknowledges that I will be in a situation in which I must choose whom I give my trust to. We are not in heaven yet, so we will go through both trials and transition. During transition we have a choice to make, will we lean on a relationship, education, or outside sources…or will we choose to put our trust in God? What we do in the course of transition will determine the trajectory of our future. If we make a habit of trusting God, transition would no longer be our downfall but our platform to greatness. Kill anxiety and frustration with faith and trust in God! Peace


I’m falling apart

The transitions of life can sometimes make us feel as if life is a broken bread crumb, falling apart with every indulgence.In life seasons, time may tornado one situation after the next into ones hands, but that’s when we need to delve into inspection mode. Confusion and frustration should inspire inspection, determine if there are too many elements floating around your world; incautiously causing focus to change from the heart of God to getting “things” done. Frustration will happen in life, but we must remember how to get back to the basics. Get quiet time with God, meditation, where you do nothing other than focus on the heartbeat of our creator. When you take time with God, He then will show you light through your confusion; and the pieces of your world will come back together as they were intended to be.  Peace.


What would you look like if you lived how you dreamed? Imagine living fearlessly… No deferment, fear of failure, or opinion weighing your determination down. When you decide to be fearlessly you, the world will become your platform and not the mountain to climb. Stop excusing your greatness and live the life God has given you; acknowledge your gift, cultivate it, then live it! Why not…your future is waiting for you! peace


Know your Seasons

There are times where you feel like the world around you is filled with lemon drops and lilies,But, there are some seasons where you feel like it is a struggle just to keep your head above water. It’s important for you to know that God is with you through every season of your life. It’s pleasurable to be in a season where the suns illuminates your face; but you have to stay strong for the stormy nights that may seem to cloud your thoughts, prayers and day. Know that hard times will not last too long, the tortuous season is creating in you a clean heart, and a stronger mind so that when your next victory comes along… you’ll be strong enough to handle it. Being in a stormy season doesn’t mean you’re outside of the will of God, it signifies the need to buckle down and gear up for the amazing future God has in mind for you. Don’t look for a way out of your next storm, ask God for a clear path through. Peace


Acknowledge the Win

Do you know when you have won in life? Sometimes we can be so engulfed with success, we fail to acknowledge the battles we have won. If you look at life today, have you overcome struggles, conquered a bad habit, or paid off a debt you thought would never go away? Well then it’s time to lift up your head and be thankful! Acknowledge your win and tell God you appreciate what He has done in your life; whether you made it to work on time, or published your first book… it deserves to be celebrated. If no one else noticed, or has told you yet… I am proud of you! In God there is victory, and my friend we are winning.


Turn it around!

68868e6b28b109b2040c5318daf8325cPraise and worship are incredible weapons in this spiritual war we are fighting. Personally, I have a playlist labeled “No you wont” and when the devil is coming at me with both barrels loaded, I play my selected songs and the battle begins. Out of my mouth comes affirmations about how great God is, and how wonderfully He made us. The freedom to enjoy my day expels out of my mouth and elevates my spirit until it is in union with the Holy Spirit. You see, the devil wants you to be stressed and hopeless, but the beauty in praise and worship blossoms the reality of how great God is; moving the focus from our problem to the hands of The Almighty God who has the power to turn it all around! Make a playlist today go to war. Don’t just sit there, its time for spiritual battle! Peace
