    The Proverbs 31 Woman & You!

    The Proverbs 31 Woman & You – have you ever made the connection?  I know we’ve all heard about the Proverbs 31 woman, but what does that have to do us as woman today?

    I’ve been a Christian (active/inactive) for most of my life and I’ve heard many sermons on the Proverbs 31 woman – in fact she is mentioned at every woman’s conference I’ve ever been to over the last 20 years.  Speakers make her sound like the woman all women should aspire to be, but why? What does this lady from the Old Testament have to do with me & you in this day & time?  I first heard about the Proverbs 31 woman when I first joined a church & started attending various … Continue reading

    Is “Christ” in Your Christmas?

    Is “Christ” in your Christmas?  Every year we as Christians ask this question as we acknowledge the birth of Christ and what it means to us and the world whether they accept Him or not.

    As Christians, we know that Jesus died on the cross (it wasn’t on a Friday), rose on the third day in order to save us from the penalty for the sins we’ve committed.  If you’ve been born into this world – you have sinned.  There are no exceptions.  God knew this and that’s why He sent Jesus to do exactly what He did.  This was God’s greatest gift to us because He loves us so much!

    So even though we know that Jesus’ actual birthday is not December 25th, we’ve adopted that … Continue reading

    Do You Have Anything To be Thankful For?

    Do you have anything to be thankful for?  Thanksgiving is over and your bellies are full.  Nobody wants to go any way near a scale because you know you ate too much! LOL.  So as you sit with your bellies full, your pants unbuttoned or unzipped with your feet up chillin while watching the game, I’ll ask you again, do you have anything to be thankful for?

    This is the time of year that people get extremely depressed more than any other time of year.  Why is that?

    The most obvious reason is because this is the season to spend time with family and friends that we love and who love us.  But what about people who for whatever the reason have no one to love and … Continue reading

    Let’s Celebrate You – You’re Worth It!

    When was last time you celebrated yourself?  When was the last time you did something good for yourself on purpose because you acknowledge all the good stuff God put in you?  Wouldn’t that be a great way to show God & the world that you appreciate how good you have been made?  Regardless of any mistakes you may have made, you still have reached a lot of goals in your life, you’re doing things that you need to do to make in your dreams come!  You need to celebrate that!

    For years, every year, when my birthday comes, I celebrate the entire month.  I plan & arrange all of the celebrations a month or two before.  That way I use my birthday as an excuse to … Continue reading

    You Were Created For Greatness!

    Do you know you were created for greatness?  Do you know God put great things inside of you on purpose to make lives better on this planet starting with your own?  What does your “being great” look like to you?  What problem on earth would you solve if you could?  What can you do right now that would be a step closer to you living in your greatness?  How do I know this is even possible?  I know because David talks about it in Psalms 71:21 – You will make me truly great and take my sorrow away (cev).  Then I took some steps to see for myself if it was true & you should do the same thing!

    All of us have daily responsibilities that … Continue reading

    Invite God To Your Next Party!!!!

    Have you ever thought about inviting God to your next party?  Does that sound funny or strange to you?  When you think of having a party have you ever even thought that God might want to be invited?  When I save a word “party” I mean any kind of celebration. For example, birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, promotions, etc.  Aren’t these the types of things we like to celebrate?  This gives us a chance to kick back, turn up and let our hair down!  Remember when every Friday was a party?  You’ve worked all week and it’s time to hang out, relax and have a good time?

    Well, I’m talking about the same type of thing.  The only difference is the kind of party I’m talking about can … Continue reading

    Living My Best Life!

    Are you living your best life?  Are you doing the best you can with what you’ve got?  Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know you’ve got problems, issues & extenuating circumstances, but don’t we all?  But don’t you want to be able to enjoy where you are on the way to where your’re going?  I know I do. Shoot out to Joyce Meyer who wrote a great book with the same name!  You should read it if you can.

    Remember when you were a kid and you dreamed of growing up & all the things you would do and be?  Remember when people would ask you what you wanted to be when you grew up?  Don’t you remember wanting to be so many different things depending on how … Continue reading

    God Is Still In The Miracle Business!

    God is still in the miracle business.  We just had a blizzard which dumped two feet of snow on us!  That’s not a typical winter storm here where we live – east coast US.  However, we knew a storm was coming because we got plenty of advanced warning so my husband & I properly prepared. By the lines I saw all outside of the supermarkets (we did our shopping three days before) others attempted to do the same.

    So, as I sat in my warm comfy home, with cabinets and refrigerator full, it gave me time to simply sit back & do a little “life review”.  This led me to see & appreciate all of the miracles that God does for me regularly.  I know that … Continue reading

    Isn’t This Life Amazing???!!!!!

    Isn’t life amazing? I think so. No, everything in my life is not perfect, but things can sure be a lot worse! As a pastor, I meet a lot of people during some of the worst times of their lives, and no matter what I think or how I feel about it; I still have to walk it out with them. Sometimes things end well and sometimes it doesn’t, but in and through it all there are gems along the way that bring light and lessons you can use then and later! Isn’t this life amazing?

    As crazy as it may seem, we do learn more when we think we have failed or when things didn’t turn out the way we wanted them to, than we … Continue reading

    Got Faith?

    Got faith? Sounds like the “got milk” commercials and print ads don’t it? It should because it’s taking from that familiar vein. If I were to ask you, a saved person or Christian, your response will be quick and swift – of course I have faith. If I were to ask a person not familiar with the term or who is not saved or has never been to church and was not a Christian – I would get a response like – faith in what?  That’s because most people realize that we have faith in many things and that faith is not only used the religious circles.

    So, where am I going with this? I’m asking if you’ve “got faith” from a spiritual perspective. I want … Continue reading

    How Did I Get Here?

    Today, as I sit in the official visiting room in one of the many prisons where I visit and minister, I look out among the inmates wearing orange jumpsuits as they wait for visits and I think to myself, how did they get here?  I know they must have asked themselves the same thing often enough. How did I get here? Now if you were an incarcerated person you could understand asking yourself that question, but even if you’re not incarcerated in a physical jail isn’t that a question you have asked yourself at one time or another?  I think so, I know have asked myself that question many times over the years.  Even though we may not be in a physical jail there are … Continue reading

    Why Should I Go To Church?

    Why should you go to church?  People go to church for many reasons.  Some go because their parents or grandparents made them go and took them to church as kids, so now going to church has just become a habit.  They know most of the people that attend their church and it’s become a place just to hang out.  Some people go to church to fulfill some religious obligation that they think will satisfy God, other people, themselves, parents, etc.  Some people go to church to fulfill or relieve a sense of guilt; they sin all week and want to make it right on Sunday!  Some people go to church for its feel-good features – the music sounds good, or you like the charisma of … Continue reading

    Spring is Here…..But Are You Blooming?

    Now that the weather is changing and spring is here, the flowers are blooming but are you blooming too?

    During the winter when the temperature is cold animals hibernate and we kinda do too. During this time there is a lot less movement.  During the winter since everything slows down so it’s a great time to reset and regroup. It’s the same with people. The cold deters people from getting out as much and when they are outside they don’t stay out any longer than they have to.

    But as soon as it looks like the weather is breaking and its warm outside, even if it’s only for one day, people just like nature spring into bloom.  You’ve seen it!   On the first warm day folks run … Continue reading

    Why NOT You? – Why NOT Me?

    Why NOT you – why NOT me?  It’s the first month of the New Year & I was sitting here thinking about my goals, dreams & the things I want to happen & manifest this year.  That’s when I heard the demons doubt & unbelief start talking.  They kept saying “Look at where you are, look at this situation & this problem”.  They kept asking me “How can your dreams ever come true from where you now sit”?  I had to admit, it did look bleak & impossible.

    That’s when the Holy Spirit reminded me of Amos 9:13 (msg) – “Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree. “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of … Continue reading

    You’ve Still Got Time! No More Excuses Just Get Started!

    How was your thanksgiving?  Prayerfully you were able to enjoy the things you are thankful for especially God, the people you love & who love you.  The ability to love is such a powerful weapon & has many benefits so I hope I enjoyed them all!

    I’ve got some good news for you.  I know that we’ve only got a couple of weeks left in the year it’s still plenty of time for you to get started on those things you still haven’t gotten done or even started.  I know that the devil on your left shoulder is telling you that it’s too late & to just start next year but allow me to be the angel on your right shoulder because God sent to tell … Continue reading

    What Do You Know “Good”?

    Hey, what do you know “good”?  I know that sounds funny & it’s not proper grammar but I’m trying to make a point.  I know that a lot of us have been dealing with all of the tests, trails & attacks that this life brings & it can be really heavy sometimes.  At times it can even be depressing. I know this to be true because I’ve been there myself, more times than I ever wanted to be.

    However, today I want everyone reading this to take your mind off all that is negative about your life situations & concentrate on what is “good” in your life!  You may have to dig deep to find the “good” but I want you to do it.  Even if … Continue reading
