Moving Pass the Feeling of Defeat

Happy Wednesday Fam! I pray that everyone is well and staying safe. I just wanted to share something that has been on my heart and that I deal with from time time. Yall see it already. “Feelings” yup we all have them us men included. Often times I find myself in my own thoughts of being overwhelm with so much to do, so many ideas, wanting to help this person and that. I often would just curl up and sit in the house and not do a thing. Now of course we should be in the house lol but I’m referring to not being productive and feeling sorry for myself. Seems like it’s so quick to slip in but it starts subtle and before you know it, you’ve spent 3 days in a funk and haven’t did anything and don’t even know why, but you feel defeated like you’ve lost and you don’t know why. If you can relate then I want to encourage you on today. This was just me on yesterday. I have 5 things that you can do to help you move along out of these bumps in the road.

1. Be ok with not knowing the end and not understanding the outcome

This one is one a huge for me. I’m an over thinker and often want to know and see the end before I even start it and if it’s cloudy or can’t be seen I will not start it or deal with it. I think it comes with being a perfectionist and not wanting to fail at the things that I do But we must be ok with not knowing the end. That is the beauty of life. You have to go through things to gain understanding and knowledge. Book knowledge and youtube vids are good resources but sometimes you have to actually go through it yourself so that you can experience it up close and personal. Here, you’ll learn things about yourself, you never knew and if you fail, you’ll learn what not to do and what works.

2. Talk it out

I have a hard time explaining myself to people and being vulnerable and letting folks in. Now be mindful, you don’t have to go around telling everybody your business but pray and ask God to place those people who will help build you and who can help you get through that you’re going through. God has blessed me with some amazing friends whom I’ve adopted as family. Yesterday, for example, I felt so defeated and I felt like I was completed stuck in neutral. I happen to be texting one of my good friends and was telling him about how I was feeling. He instantly encouraged me to keep pressing on. It was those simple words that I read that got me up and back at it. Sometimes it’s the smallest things that fire us up and motivate us to keep on pushing. So yes, talk it out, express yourself. Sometimes you just need to get it off your chest and off of you

3. Find your motivation! What is it that brings you joy or that takes your mind away from your current situation

So yesterday while I was feeling defeated and stuck. I simply jumped on the keys (my piano) and started to play. After 5 minutes I started to become overwhelmed with a feeling of Joy and Peace. I had played myself happy and restored myself back to life. After that I went to the gym and completed my day. It was like God had smiled on me and I had got back on track where I needed to be. I encourage you to find that thing that puts your mind at ease. If it’s reading a book or calling up a friend to talk. Just do it and keep moving on.

I hope this helps when you’re having those low moments Be blessed!

Why We Must Stay a Student

Hey Family! I hope that all is well with you and that we are plowing through our week and achieving our goals and getting closer to our dreams.

I wanted to share with you this quick tidbit. I wrote this message in my phone a couple of weeks ago and it stuck with me. You might ask, what is he talking about from the title. We often take being a student being associated with being in school or college but I want to dive deeper and take it to our everyday lives. With the world constantly changing by the day, it is very important that we keep our eyes and ears open to knowing what’s changed and what is changing and what’s next to come. I could remember like it was yesterday. Picture it, turning on the computer and waiting for that connection to go thru via Dial up, and waiting to hear those three words, “You’ve Got mail”. Crazy right! Do you remember? Having to lose out on talking on the phone because you were wanting to go online to play your favorite game or to look something up. Now of course, our internet has changed for the better and we are instantly and sometimes always connected now because we have designated lines and signals just for internet. So why must we stay a student? I have 3 Reasons why we must stay a student. I’ll keep it short and simple for you. Let’s go

1. We must stay a student because Technology changes and will change

I remember back in the day you had to actual go to the place to pay your bill or call in and pay your bill. Now that is becoming more and more obsolete. Bill pay online has become the new norm. Even having an email address is not optional. You cannot operate a smartphone in 2020 without having an email address. With that be said… we must make it our business to be open to learn this new technology so that we don’t get left behind. So every so often you should sit down and listen to a tech reviewer on youtube or open up a book to learn the latest trends in tech so that you don’t get left behind. I remember when you booked a hotel you were given the room that the hotel assigned for you, but now you have the choice of actually picking out your room, and now you even have the option to use your phone as the 🔑 to get in. Stay a student and keep learning all that you can .

2. We must stay a student because you don’t know everything

Say it with me, “I don’t know everything”. I believe that’s the reason why God made so many cultures and different races of people so that we wouldn’t look stale or outdated or just regular. If I only know what it is to come from a African American background then I would never be able to relate to anyone else. Learning and studying culture helps us connect with other people. Not only that we can share our food, our struggles, our victories. It’s a blessing to be able to learn from a different culture. I know we all love Mexican food, me personally am a fan of Italian. The best way to learn how to make these foods and to keep them authentic is by studying the culture and their methods. Study= Student.

3. We must stay a student because there is always something to learn

Have you ever went to youtube and started watching something and another related video comes up and before you know it another comes up and all of sudden you find yourself watching 5 videos when you only wanting 1. It happens to me all the time. I’ve watched locomotive videos, car repair videos, and all sorts of content. What I discovered is that there is always something out there to learn and pick up. I feel that we count ourselves short when we just stick to what we know and never get outside of our box to see how far we could go. Don’t get caught up in the usual or the easy comfortable routine of this is me. Try something new every once in a while. By nature we are creatures of habit and I guarantee if you decide to make a habit of learning something you didn’t know, then you would be on your way to Staying Student!

We Must Self-Care Everyday

Hey Fam! I just wanted to share a quick nugget with you. We’ve seen these two words show up a lot especially in this season and it really matters that we take time out for ourselves and develop a disciplined self care regiment.

Self-Care is simply caring for yourself in the best way you can. That might be you taking a nap, going to grab a haircut, or making a dentist appointment. I believe that self care should be done daily. We often run ourselves thin and don’t take time inhale, or exhale and I get it. There’s some of us who have families and obligations and we feel that we can’t afford to take a break or even take time off. We must understand that we are not robots or machines, but what’s even funny robots and machines need tune ups and updates too. For Example, cars need oil changes regularly, tires, fluids flushed and when we neglect those things, the car will tend to show it by not starting up, driving hard, or even being sluggish. So say it with me, “We have to self care everyday” . I know for some of us men we think that we are sometimes invincible creatures. Nothing can hurt us and such. I know for me, I’m a person that hate taking meds when I get sick. I rarely liked going to the doctor and always believe that I can just fight it off and it will go away but what I’ve learned is that we must learn to listen to our bodies. Going back to the car, when something doesn’t check out right the car throws up a check engine light. Often times our bodies do the same exact thing, with aches, headaches, loss of appetite. We must begin to learn to listen those signs. If we begin to develop go habits of Self Care then we could live better healthier lives. We could plow through the stress of our burdens and cares by first caring for ourselves. So I want to encourage everyone who reads this to simple take care of yourself and take time out for Self Care. Blessings to you!

How do I become an Encourager & NOT a Hinderer?

Happy Wednesday Family! I want to share something with you that has been on my heart for quite sometime and especially during this season. We have a lot gong on in our lives and world and the last thing we need to hear is more bad news or something negative in our space. I’ve set and let this marinated with my spirit and begin to take inventory of myself and really ask myself, am I encouraging my brothers and sisters? Am I being a light in dark places? So I want to share with you the difference between the two and how we can always be on the encouraging side of the table for everyone.

What is an Encourager?

The root word here is Encourage and it means to inspire with courage, spirit, or confidence. It also means to promote, advance, give approval to or foster.

So when we make it our business to encourage someone we should be lifting up. We should be able to shift the perspective for what’s going on currently. A true encourager will see the good in the bad. For example, If someone calls and ask you for advice. First thing we tend to do is listen to the story and try to solve it. That’s nice for some things but sometimes people are just looking to be heard and mostly just need an ear to vent. So we must be careful with what were actually promoting in these areas. What are we actually encouraging and approving? Or are we disapproving, judging and ready to gossip about the fresh news we just received.

How to Encourage

A true encourager will listen and sympathize and will wait until they get permission to say what they really want to say. I’m sure you have those friends who want to tell you what they would have done and how you should have done it, but usually never have anything to back it up with experience because they’ve never had that issue or problem but can tell you how to do it. That actually does more harm than help and it doesn’t inspire courage or gives hope for what to do right there in the moment.

The Encouragers’ Cheatsheet

1. Be quick to Listen and slow to speak

Be the friend who can listen before expounding or mouthing off what you would have done.

2. Sympathize. Show up and show interest, and Pay attention

Maybe your friend has just started a new project or business. SHOW UP. Like that status, share their page. Write a comment on their post.

3. Support in anyway you can.

Sending a note or a text of inspiration could do our loved ones well. Life is hard and sometimes we can feel all alone, but just sending out a quick reminder to sometime will give them courage and confidence to carry on.

4. You can use the word “Encourage”

You can use this word as your conclusion… For example, I want to encourage you to keep your options open for any job that might come your way because your work experience speaks volumes. Your friends or peers will hold on to that.

Say no to being a Hinderer

The root word is hinder and it simply means to cause delay, interruption, or difficulty, to prevent from doing, acting. Ooooo and this is a big one. The verb definition is to be an obstacle or impediment.

Saints, are we being an obstacle? Are you being an interruption to someone’s vision or dream? Do you know that we do this when we throw our opinions freely around the place. I remember the saying, “If you don’t have anything good to say, then don’t say nothing”. They were talking about hindering. This is simply what we do when we give our harsh opinion on something or somebody and especially when we were not asked to give one. It’s so easy to fall in the slip up of being on that side of the table.

Being a musician and a classical pianist I’ve seen many performances and heard many performances. Some were good and some were not good. I’ve even had some bad ones myself but every time and almost every time I could remember the crowd and audience clapping and applauding someone for their efforts on their performance whether it was bad or good. I look back at it and am reminded of those moments being an encouragement for the artist or pianist. In their mind they probably are feeling the worst, shaky, doubtful, but the audience sees and hears a different perspective. We see the courage that it took to sit at that piano and take us on a musical journey. So instead of delaying, instead of preventing someone’s dream or hard work Let’s Encourage!

I just wanted to give us something all to think about. We only grow from staying a student. Once we stop becoming students, we stop learning.

Thank you for reading, Be Blessed!

Why Do I Workout?

Happy Wednesday Everyone! I Pray you are all doing well. I wanted to share something that has been dear to me for quite sometime. You got it, Health! I’ll say it one more time for those who are just tuning in but I just turned 31 and I’ve really been ramping up things a bit in my life. I really want to be the best version of myself that I can be in this life time. During the pandemic I’ve heard and read a lot of people talking about self care and overall just taking care of yourself. When I turned 30 I feel like the check engine light came on. 30 told me that you’re getting a lil older and it will require you to do a bit more than what you were doing in your 20s. You know when you’re young that’s your excuse for everything. I’m young, this won’t bother me. Like skipping meals and breakfast. I’m young, I can go through out the day without eating like it’s an achievement only to find out you could be damaging your metabolism. So I want to share with you the “why” behind my workouts and what my goals are. I hope this inspires you to get up and move, so that you can live a healthy life.

I choose to workout because it helps relieve stress. This is actually scientifically proven that working out can help the body deal with stress. I always feel like Superman after a good workout. I feel like I can conquer anything that comes at me and it really gives me tunnel vision for whatever I’m focused on or for those things I have to get done, like writing this blog. Every workout isn’t the same and will not be the same. Your body will respond differently every single day. There’s days I want to just chill but those are the days I perform my best. I always think how would the successful people such as Bill Gates and Steve Jobs get anything completed if they only did everything based on feelings and how they felt for that time. In life we will have to do things we don’t want to do like lacing up those shoes and hitting the pavement but when I think about how I will feel after I’m done. The motivation sets in and pulls me in.

Lastly, I choose to workout because I’m always inspired by something. For my spiritual folks, the Lord really speaks to me in the shower and at the gym. Weird I know? I’ve been in the gym and zoned out creating an idea and would forget where I am or will forget that I’m on my 2nd mile. It’s spiritual for me. The constant assurance that God is in control and has all power gives me more strength to finish and go through my workout. I also feel as I’m working out thy I am staying ready for my destiny and purpose or even the door that God blesses me to go through. I would hate to not be ready due to being out of shape from not being a good steward over my body/temple. Let that marinate.

So that’s why I do it. I hope this gives you a push to get up and get out there. Don’t wait for the new month or Monday. Let your new month and Monday be today. Don’t put off what you can do today for tomorrow. I love you all, Be blessed.

Combatting Procrastination

Hey Fam! I just wanted to encourage you on this beautiful hump day. I always want to inspire and uplift someone in anyway that I can.

So I celebrated year 31 this past weekend as some of you may know who follow me. Since my 29th birthday I am always put into this of picking myself apart and wanting to know if I did enough or why am I in this place and such and then once my birthday pass some of that anxiety leaves. Why? I don’t know. Maybe because the new age has set in or something.

One of my goals for this new chapter is getting things done in a timely fashion. My birthday was on Friday and I already started this on Saturday. When I tell you that I am the king of Procrastination, I have the t- shirt, and next to the definition in the dictionary you will see my name and link to my facebook! I am so serious. I even remember being in college and waiting the last minute to type a paper even when the paper was assigned a month ahead of time. I would sometimes even get up hours before it was due to complete it. I even carried this to driving. I would leave out just in time to get where I was going so that I could speed smh.

So something started to happen when I turned 30. I’m not sure if a light bulb came on or something, but I became overwhelmed and stressed out with rushing to get something done at the last minute. Why not get it done now and out the way? Why put more on me than I can handle. I went back to the source and found out that it was in my time management. I even heard a preacher preaching on Procrastination and how it could be a form of Pride to God. When I heard this I was stunned. Basically he stated that you say that you can do something later, you are indeed saying that you have some type of God sovereign knowledge of all things and time. You are assuming time on God’s time and not being God. Listen it’s Subtle but we do it. As we see how precious but fast life can go. We don’t know how much time we have on this earth or with our love ones. When you think about calling that friend or texting your cousin, DO IT. He also said the only moment you know that you have is the moment that you have at this present moment. When I heard this perspective I was a little torn and immediately repented because I was thinking that this is just me and this is the way I operate and that it is ok.

So I walked away with this perspective and it’s being doing me well. Now I’m not going to front and say that I get everything done when I want it but I have gotten a lot better with getting the things I need to do in a timely fashion. I want to share 3 things that has helped me get through procrastination and it could possibly help you too

1. Use a calendar and create a to do list

If you haven’t done this then you are in for a treat. There is so much gratification for checking off your list of things that you have to do. I would make a list of things to do a night for the next day and would start early on them. So get you a notebook and start getting stuff done.

2. Kill off distractions and stay focus

Sometimes you need to put the phone down and log off of social media. I currently have a timer for my phone and IPad for facebook. It will only allow me to use facebook for 1 hour a day. Which is not hard to do lol. You start watching someone’s live and another vid, like heart that, and boom you’ve spent 3 hrs on fb. So dial it back. Map out and see where you are spending the most time. If it’s Netflix, or tv then dial it back so that you can get what you need done. With less distractions you will be able to stay focus.

3. Reward yourself for small victories

The greater reward that I find in getting things done is the fact that you don’t have to have anything on your plate or mind. Of course we are always thinking and moving but if you get done what you need to do in a timely fashion without rushing, you will have more time to do something enjoyable that you like to do. Reward yourself. I would often reward myself at the end of the week if I got everything done by a getting a slice of cheese cake. Binge watching a new show on The Weeknd because I had a good week of getting things done. Kinda like how our parents did us a kids. If you get all A’s on your report card you’ll get a new video game, but first you got to do the work. Make up your own plan and stick to it. Before you know it you’ll be kicking procrastination in the rear. You got this, go do it!

What did 30 Teach Me? My Year Review

So it’s that time again already. I can’t believe that my birthday is in 2 days and I’ll be 31. Seems like 6 months ago I was dreading of turning 30. At the time it seemed like some huge shoes to fill. I was thinking that I should had been further along. You know you start out with plans for your life and then life actually starts to take its place and before you know it, you’re turning 30.

Year 30 was amazing for me. I learned a lot about myself, character, and my calling/ destiny. You know sometimes you can spend a portion of your life working a job or in a certain area, and you think that’s what you’re suppose to be doing and you begin to just settle there for a while. In the back of your head you tell yourself, I’m going back to school next year, and the next year turns into 2, 3 and 5. I just want to share some things that I’ve learned over the last year that stretched me and got me to a better place.

1. I have the Power to change my situation

Year 30 truly gave me some super powers. In my 20s I would always find myself feeling stuck. Feeling stuck on a job or working on a project that I know I didn’t want to be doing because it wasn’t doing it for me. Man… When 30 hit, I gained a new perspective for being ok to admit that this isn’t what i want and now I need to make a change. The first step to this process is actually admitting where you went wrong or what wrong decision you chose lead you down this path. Be ok with saying this isn’t working, then change it. It’s a loaded one but it’s just that simple do a 180.

2. Let “Yes” and No” become your Portion 🙌🏾

Let me tell you how over the last year this has blessed me and kept me from putting myself in places I really didn’t want to be in or in conversations I wasn’t interested in. Over the past year, I’ve said more No’s then yes. Like I said earlier I figured out what I wanted and where I’m headed and I had to understand that everything someone brings to you isn’t always good for you. Even if it involves your gift, talent, or niche. When I agreed and said yes, My entire being jumped on board to deliver and get the job done. There’s been so many times I’ve said Yes to something that I didn’t want to do but instead of hurting someone’s feelings with a simple clean cut “no” I would say yes, but and then who ends up in their feelings at the end of the day, Me.

3. Protect your Peace

Family, at all cost protect your peace. My mom would always remind me that you have one life so do your best to keep it while you’re alive. This past year, 30 has taught me to be able to put the phone down. Place it on DND. Get to figure out who Brandon is. Get rid of the extra added on stress that you put on yourself. So yes, there’s been unanswered calls, text messages, and emails left until I had time to get to them. I stayed away from drama that didn’t involve me and even the stuff that did involve me, I gave my regards and if that didn’t help it, I left it there. I learned how to not get overwhelmed with everybody’s cares and to make sure that Brandon was healthy. I can’t be sick trying to get you well or help you. Broken people cannot help broken people.

4. Make a decision and stand on it, even if it goes south. Ultimately make a decision.

This one was big for me. For some reason when 30 kicked in it gave me a new level of authority. As apart of my yes and no, I made the decision and stood on it. Even if I backfired. I used to be a person that always was in the middle of things. Maybe this, maybe that. Instead of a yes, or no. This past year has taught me to be ok with making mistakes. BUT make a decision. That’s the only way you’ll get to see if there will be a mistake or success.

5. Life is too short, apologize and keep it moving

With Covid-19 shifting our nation and everyday life. The last thing we need is a grudge that could have been broken with a simple sorry. I’ve learned during this season to be more sympathetic to people and just simply love on them. God is love. Life is too short, it’s just a vapor. I’ve been able to gain back rightful places of friendships with an apology because I realized that I’m not perfect, and never will be. Although, some relationships are still a work in place, I dare not let it make me stagnant from moving forward.

6. I am blessed beyond measure

Mannnn when I tell you how God has blessed me and kept me over this past year. He allowed me to continue working without missing a meal, or a mortgage payment. I truly thank God for blessing me and being my ultimate resource. I also thank him for the gift he’s put in me to give him glory. As a matter of fact if you’re reading this, I want you to take a moment and to thank God for blessing you with his breath of Life.

3 Things you Can do to Keep the Faith through a Pandemic 💪🏾✊🏾

Good Morning Family! I pray that everyone is doing well and making it through. I Just wanted to share some Encouragement today for someone that might need some and also may need to read some fresh perspective.

I was given the task to preach a sermon a couple of months, and God downloaded a word in my spirit and the basis of the word was “perspective”. I’ve talked about this briefly. This word has really carried me through since March until now. There’s been so much going on in our world, from pandemic (Covid), killings, riots, and racial tension. Honestly, if I could be honest, I became overwhelmed and checked out a few times to get myself together. I am a man of Faith and know that there is power in prayer, and that God is a all knowing as well. He is not surprised by anything. I often picture God, sitting in his nice comfy chair watching his masterpiece movie play out, while he’s holding the stars in place inhaling and exhaling. Ya’ll let me have my Disney moment!!! But, he’s all knowing, and always present. So when you take it from this perspective you must question why am I still here? I’m alive and that means there is need for me here. If your work was finished I honestly believe that we wouldn’t be here. We all were created for a purpose and it is up to us to find that purpose on our journey called life. Now hold that thought.

I’ve titled this post “Keeping the Faith” because when storms and trials of life come, the first thing we do is lose faith on those things we are believing for or working towards, but I want to declare to you to shift your perspective. It is not over and there is still time to go back to the drawing board. I’ve seen so many people use this time wisely and shift. They shifted from doing things the so called normal way from in person meetings to making things virtual and not missing a beat. Our churches for example. I’ve seen a lot of churches get on board with their online presence and take advantage of technology the best way they could and I’ve seen some do the bare minimum because they just think it was that important and they just wanted to decide to wait until it’s Safe to go back inside the 4 walls of a building as if God didn’t know that a Pandemic would occur. I’m always reminded of the scripture that says “he who win souls is wise”. Proverbs 11:30 and with the help of technology, WiFi, and cameras The service and ministry never had to stop unless we want it too. This may have called for us to stop doing things the same old way and develop new ways of doing ministry. We must SHIFT. Shifting perspective gives you a different a view of the situation. Shifting perspective will help you keep the faith during a Pandemic. If you are only bound by what you see in front of you and are constantly magnifying what you hear from the news and your peers, You won’t get the chance to utilize faith to go against the grain. This is the most valuable time for the church. The world is seeking healing, deliverance, and salvation and if we can’t shift and bring Faith to them because were not willing to shift, then are we really spreading Faith and Hope to a dying world?

So I challenge you to shift and realign your Faith. No, I this isn’t the correct formula but I do know that God has a purpose and plan for us and if we would just have faith to follow and endure We will get through this. I want to encourage with 3 nuggets on how you can keep the Faith during these times.

1. Check your Circle and keep like minded people in your circle who want the same thing as you.

  • Get rid of the negative conversations and complainers. Yes, we all know what is going on but if we want to shift and rise above it. We must start having the conversations about solutions. If these conversations can’t be made within your circle then it might be time to shift your circle.

2. Stay prayerful and connected to people of Faith “Church”

  • We must stay built up by keeping the full armor of salvation on at all times. Do it when you don’t want to. Stay in the presence of God. It will keep you and it will keep your mind focused. Start your day with devotion (prayer and scripture) and watch how much better your day unfolds.

3. Make time for reflection and Gratitude

  • Take inventory of your many blessings and things you have to be grateful for. We often take the little things for granted. Your little thing is someone’s big thing. Be Grateful. Take time and jot down a list of things that you are grateful for. Putting these things before you will help you continue on your journey of keeping the Faith.

I pray that you all be safe and Blessed

Why do you do it? 🤔

Hey Everyone… Happy New Year and welcome to 2020. I pray that the year has started fresh for you and that you have new insight and the motivation for reaching and attaining your goals. So what you didn’t get a chance to do it in 2019 get up off the ground and get back on that bike and make it happen!

Today I have just a tidbit about motive. Motive can be defined as someone’s reasoning for doing something and there’s also two sides to this spectrum. The motive can be hidden and sometimes plain obvious. I want to prune and ask the world’s famous question WHY? Why are you doing it? I want to refocus our heart and minds of Why we do a certain thing. I believe that this is the building block of our success. Are we doing this for recognition, wealth, out of jealousy, or just because we like what the other person is doing. Businesses are created because there was a problem and based on that problem they are the solution. Plumbers are in business to come and fix a leaking pipe or a tub that won’t drain. They are available to fix the problem. So we can conclude that a businesses “why” is based on providing services for their consumer needs.

So now I question your “why”? Often times we find ourselves (me included) doing something that we started out thinking was cool or trendy then we stop because maybe it didn’t give us the success we wanted or didn’t give us our big break. Your why should be based on a solid variable.

Having a pure motive will always win. In today’s time we need more honest and genuine clean motives behind our dwellings, because if their not true or tainted, they will show up eventually. Connect your motive with your passion. If your ultimate passion is to put a smile on someone’s face then motive or motivation for doing so won’t change because your goal is to make people feel happy.

As you go through your day today, take a quick inventory of what you are apart of and ask yourself why do I do this?

Blessings from a God that Can do the Impossible

Hello Family!

I pray that everyone is living their best lives and that your holiday was filled with joy, peace and love. I pray that this message will be blessing to you and enrich you on your journey of life.

I had been reading and in prayer about some things. Can I vent? I’ve been in panic mode.  Worrying about some finances, family and business. Yesterday, I was lead to read Psalms 91 and God simply says give me a chance. You’re not suppose to be worried about this or that. Rest in me, and even when stuff come up, I won’t let it touch you, you’ll be able to keep going. Mannnnn I’ve read this passage so many times but yesterday I really needed to hear that. I was like the kid who fell down off his bike and scraped his knee and cries and run to mom and dad, only for them to say hey, it’s going to be ok, you’ll be fine. I posted a quote today that I written in my phone and it simply says. Stop worrying so much that you give no room for your Faith to attach to God’s Promise. Let me break that down. If you stay focus on your dilemmas and situations, you will never be able to reach for God because you will be too focused on trying to come up with a solution or the ultimate solution. I joke with a friend on occasion about this phrase he uses and encourages “Take Rest” and honestly we must Take Rest. Take rest in knowing that God is going to work it out for us. Take rest that you can stop worrying. It’s a process, and you will totally have to flex that faith muscle to get the ball moving on those faith biceps. Trust me it’s a journey but God will not put more on you than you can bare.

Also, if you are like me looking and waiting for a blessing from God please make sure that you stay open. Be open to the limitless possibilities of God and stop thinking that there is only one way for God’s blessings to come through. The reason why some of our blessings haven’t come through yet is because we’re not open to them. God may want to use the co worker to bless you who you don’t speak to in the morning. God may want to use that annoying friend who looks up to you and who calls you all the time to bless you. God uses people! In the bible he says that the riches of the sinner is laid up for the just but how do you get to them if you are closed off? The world is so much bigger than your city, your church, your job and even your own family. There are people from all walks of life looking for your ministry, your business, your intellect and they are ready to invest and be a blessing to you. Don’t get caught up with people looking different from you. We are all God’s children and we are his creation. We sing and preach about God being a miracle worker but we diminish the light on God’s power when we think that the blessing can only come from a promotion on a job or a raise. When we begin to take the limits off of God (take your hands off the steering wheel please) and REST in him, then the blessings will flow. Most of us are already blessed and don’t even know it. If you’re able to make choices, count yourself blessed. If you can go to your closet and stand there for 10 minutes picking out something to wear for one day, You’re blessed. The homeless family may only have that one shirt to wear. We are a blessed people. Remember to be open. Remember God’s blessings and miracles are unordinary and breaks scientific research (the virgin Mary). So stop looking for them to be how you think they should look and be open for him to bless you.


For with God Nothing shall be impossible

Luke 1:37

I love You

God Bless

I Don’t Have a Lot🙂 Here’s Some Quick Encouragement

Hello Family, I am BACK. I pray this finds you well and blessed. It’s been a while since I’ve written anything but I want to get back to a place of writing and speak what’s on my heart, and the only thing I have right now is a piece of encouragement.

Despite what’s going on in the world, I want to spread some joy and to remind us all to sit back and to open our hearts for gratitude. Everyday we wake up and breathe and exhale is a blessing. We are indeed a blessed people. I simply want to share these few words, Be Strong, you are more than enough and capable to get through this. Whether it’s financially, health related or struggling to find where you fit in, please be reminded that you are enough. God has equipped you with everything you need. Take time to sit back and tap into your God given gifts and talents. You may convey the gift of servitude and the gift of helps. Especially in this time we all need a helping hand whether it’s physically or just an ear.

I am praying for you and with you, I love you!
