The Power Within

If you have stumbled across this blog, it is not by accident. I believe that God has given us, as believers, the power to stop maintaining misery, the power to overcome obstacles, the mindset to stop the madness in our life, and the persistence to transition from defeat to victory. You are here for a purpose, and that which you are going through is not your permanent situation, but it is a temporary assignment. Be reminded today that your troubles are temporary, and that "God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that worketh in us".(Ephesians 3:21) Because of the power down on the inside, the dilemma, the pain, the tribulations and the trials are not in your life to stay, they are just passing through.

God Is Not The Author Of Confusion

1 Corinthians 14:33

For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace,....

If you are experiencing confusion in your life, please understand that God is not the source of that confusion. Anything that attempts to rob us of peace, hope, joy, health, and prosperity is from satan. According to John 10:10, Jesus came into this world so that we can experience the abundant life, and satan came to steal, to kill, and to destroy. Identify the areas in your life that are filled with confusion and eliminate those things. If you can't eliminate those things, those people, and/or those situations, pray to God the Father for wisdom as to how to deal with it/them.

A Poem About Our Girlfriends

Someone will always be prettier.
Someone will always be smarter.
Some of their houses will be bigger.

Some will drive a better car.
Their children will do better in school..And their husband will fix more things around the house.
So let it go, and love you and your circumstances.
Think about it! The prettiest woman in the world can have hell in her heart.
The most highly favored woman on your job may be unable to have children.
The richest woman you know, she's got the car, the house, the clothes~ might be lonely.
So, love who you are.
Look in the mirror in the morning and smile and say,'I am too Blessed to be Stressed and too Anointed to be Disappointed!
''Winners make things happen~~ Losers let things happen.
'Be 'Blessed' Ladies and pass this on to encourage another woman.
'To the world you might be one person, to me you are special!

Give Thanks Unto The Lord

I pray that your New Year is off to a great start. Although I am recuperating from an automobile accident, I still consider 2010 to be off to a great start. Some of you may be wondering how could that possibly be. Well, I am truly a walking blessing to have survived. I take each day as an opportunity to express my gratitude to the creator of the universe. Each day is another opportunity give praise to our awesome God. "Oh give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good : for his mercy endureth for ever". (Psalm 136:1)

STOP taking others for granted

STOP taking others for granted!

Remember to say "thank you" when someone does a deed. People don't have to do what they do. Too often, people are taken for granted just because others expect them to do things. My mom always taught me that people don't have to do what they do. I am so frustrated with others that assume that I should handle their responsibilities. Just because I did it once doesn't mean that I want to continue doing it - at your discretion. That may have been my assignment then. All temporary assignments don't become permanent duties. I don't mind doing things because I want to do them. I despise doing things when I feel that I have no choice in the matter.
