Get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the message God has planted in your hearts, for it is strong enough to save your soul.” JAMES 1:21 (NLT)Get rid of anything that is dark or causes your mind to be clouded. I’ve interpreted this as get rid of anything that isn’t from heaven.Release anything that causes you to be distracted from the honest message that your soul, and heart, carries because that is your answer. That is your purpose. For a long time, I’d disregard the uncomfortable feelings or intuitions that were “strong enough to save my soul”. My soul was telling me to say less with certain people, do more with this, to stop that relationship, don’t spend that, return that bag because you’ll need that money for later, call that person and apologize, be quiet and just listen, don’t overthink it, leave it alone, etc. These heart sent messages were all unctions that has to do with my purpose.God has already set purpose in your heart. (Ecc. 3:11) Your purpose, and what you feel you were born to do, will save you time in this life and the life after this one. When you walk with the Lord, we begin making decisions that match our purpose. So, Don’t fight it! Don’t resist it! Before you know it, time will have passed you, and you’ll realize that your life has felt like you’ve been in a belly of a whale if you don’t go with it. Go with what? God’s plan that strong message in your heart that can save your soul. (Jonah 1:17) We say, “God doesn’t speak to me..” but sometimes God doesn’t always have full blown conversations with us. Sometimes it’s a truth that’s already around us. It could be a truth that we don’t want to accept or something we want to hold onto. So, I’ve had to make a decision of if I want to be free or to just live the lie? Or things that are forced? Am I going to live a life that I’ve tailored made? Or accept that I’m an invention with a purpose and the life that God has planned for me is the best route?So, what’s tugging at you? What haven’t you surrendered to the Lord? What part of your life is in the back of your mind saying “give me to Jesus”? Do you feel like your should be further in certain areas of your life? Do you feel like you should be more involved with kingdom work? Do you feel like it’s time to minimize your complaints? Go for it. It’s about to be the new year. In this season, God wants peace and for your ascend. So, reflect, pray, plan, eliminate, and take the steps forward. W
Aunty Janet once said, “What have you done for me lately?” However, I’d like to flip it and encourage you to not wait for anyone else but ask yourself, “What have you done for YOU lately?” Have you found time to make your annual doctoral visits? Or have you been more concerned with everyone else or too busy building your brand?
Self care is so important in order to fulfill your purpose successfully. I’m aware that we are a well informed group of people. However, sometimes the reminders are so necessary. So, take this as a reminder! “You’re worth it!” It’s not just the money that you need but you need your heart beat, successful joint movements, restful nights, and more to also enjoy the money. Ha! Take time to find your place of peace and quiet. Feel free, to not only listen to others, but to listen to yourself. When you’re restored you’re given a new wave of strength to persevere and to think clear. God wants you to sift through the mental clutter and hear what He’s saying to you through your soul. He’s ready to revive you so that you can believe in love and dreams again. I’ve been telling my sistHERS (mentees), if you don’t know how to spend your time and money, other people will know how to spend it for you. Keep conversations a little shorter, have more time to yourself, prioritize people into your schedule by levels of mutualism, acknowledge what they do and don’t do. Make sure you’re evaluating yourself to the same standard. Listen to the wise and find safety in new relationships. Find brands that speak directly to you. Don’t break yourself to fit the mold of what society says is “in”. Don’t break yourself by comparisons. If you’re curvy, shop with the curvy lines. If you’re a runway model sized gal, shop with more straight sized brands. Make sure your heart is well, but don’t break yourself over things that are a fly by night.

Josuha 1:9 Deuteronomy 31:6
It’s that simple. I just wanted to encourage you and remind you to get back to your dreams, goals and passion. I know time may have redirected you but let the promises of God remind you that your future is secure. Go for what you were called in the earth to do and have. Don’t settle for less. We will spend more time in eternity than we will in this life. So, how will you answer to Jesus when He returns? Will you have to say that people and the shorter life has talked you out of your purpose? Or will He be able to say, “Well done! You were popping’!” Ha! god has great things in the works for you. Believe it, and while you’re believing it, put some action to it. Don’t put yourself in the position to always have to start again. Start today. you’ve been dreaming it. So, now start planning it and then JUST DO IT!
P.S. We love you NIKE!
This week was my first mentorship retreat. SistHER is a digital program to empower women with faith, love, and solutions. It was so amazing and such a great success. In the middle of the year we meet at a mansion for two days with activities, food, rest, and more. Women were restored and released. After this week it was clear that God was with me, in this venture. We were victorious. I can do all things, through Christ. Lately things have gone amazingly well and God has been so present. However, if I could go through the random demonic strategy that occurred on one of the days, you’d really probably not believe it. The moment it appeared I knew what it was. My flesh wanted to respond one way but my spirit gave me more insight. I walked away with peace, the Lord walked with me and talked me through it. I couldn’t believe I did that! On the way to the airport I walked out to get in an Uber, a bus was going super fast, I stopped to see if they would stop, she did, I walked to get in the car, as soon as I put my leg in the car, the bus was on my side of the vehicle dragging the door backwards. It should’ve been my leg or arm. It all happened so fast. Immediately I asked, “What is going on?”. The driver got out and tried to say that it was my fault. Immature passengers walked off the bus laughed, pointed, and did some weird activity in response to this kind of situation. Immediately, I thought “The accuser of the brethren”. I wanted to respond with my mouth but I couldn’t believe I didn’t. The lesson is: be ready to fight this good fight of faith. It’s not always the same approach. How do you fight it? With prayer, being watchful, listening, not being so reactive, trusting God, and a clean life. Sometimes the signs of you being successful aren’t just opened doors but it’s sometimes an attack. As much as we like to commercialize things, spiritual warfare is still a fight that we are in. If I hadn’t been prayerful and
in a good space with God, I’m sure I wouldn’t have been able to clearly identify what was going on. While I could identify but couldn’t stop certain things, God protected me in every situation. He did what I couldn’t do. It was like he knew that each thing was about to happen; like he had already been there. Nothing from the war touched me or injured me. This week I literally saw God fighting for me. Sorry to be redundant but I can’t believe this stuff happened and I can’t believe I responded the way I did. This is a reminder to stay with God and he’ll stay with you. God is watching when you’re not. Stand your ground and don’t let anyone run you out of where you belong. Honestly, with no sin/flesh struggles in my life, right now, I’ve been far more clear and free. I’ve been more disciplined to not answer certain calls, respect the disconnect, and I’ve been more on/in purpose than I’ve been for some time now. You can do all things through Christ, and instead of being weakened from this war you’ll gain strength and confidence to keep living on purpose. None of this has dampened my days. I cried after the first incident because my flesh wanted to fight. I was disappointed but I pulled it together. I still had the vibe and mood of Aunty Dorinda in this video. You should have it too. Be encouraged, God is with you. Stay prayerful and always watch. Have the peace of God to walk in confidence that nothing can harm you. Go forward and be ready because the enemy will be mad but heaven will be proud of you.
Things are happening. God is answering prayers. Deadweight is falling and we’ve become more aware of self care and who we are in the earth. Some of our ways of #selfcare has pushed us more into #faith and #action.
We’ve become more aware of our #time and where our #dollars are going. This is an #awakening and what #God wants for us! You’re in the right space. Though things may be taking time, God is literally allowing things to run it’s course so that it’s not in the way for you. I’ve prayed #prayers and it seemed like things were taking so long. I shifted my #focus on when it would happen, and focused on what I needed to make better for when it happens. So, I kept in mind that “IT WILL HAPPEN”!
He’s rewarding his children who have made the #sacrifice and has not forgotten the importance of the #commitment to Him. He’s still planting ideas in our minds to ensure that we not inherit the job by the residual income. This doesn’t only speak to the financial part of us, but residual income could be the stream of your peace or sleep at night. He’s removing any blockage. Anything/anyone who is in the way of blocking the flow of things. Because you have such level of loyalty and won’t let some things go, he’s going to help us, by moving them on our behalf. Don’t worry. This will all happen “all of sudden”. There’s a shift that’s happening. Scientist say it’s happening in the earth and I’m led to believe that signs in the natural is what’s happening in the spiritual. The promises of God are still EVERYTHING (AMEN) and He has not forgotten you. I’m glad I know this living God.Scriptures to Consider:
Psalms 9:10Those who know your name trust in you,for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.
2 Samuel 7:28Sovereign Lord, you are God! Your covenant is trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to your servant.Joshua 1:9Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”Genesis 39:2As it turned out, God was with Joseph and things went very well with him. He ended up living in the home of his Egyptian master. ⁃ You will be successful because God is with you! Isaiah 43:1-2When You’re Between a Rock and a Hard PlaceBut now, God’s Message,the God who made you in the first place, Jacob,the One who got you started, Israel:"Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you.I’ve called your name. You’re mine.When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you.When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down.When you’re between a rock and a hard place,it won’t be a dead end—
