You Mad Bro?

Ephesians 4:26-31

26 “In your anger do not sin” : Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry,27 and do not give the devil a foothold. 28 Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need. 29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.

 

The thing about anger, is it is the product of of everything that is prideful and selfish. See it is easy to get caught up in the emotional aspect of life. It’s easy to let it fester and stew and take over your thoughts. I used to be angry. I used to hate and make fun of others. When I came back to Jesus, He pointed many things out. If you cannot see the good in others or accept age, gender, color, etc. You are quickly falling away from the grace and blessing of God. Sometimes, with those close to me, I can see things so clearly. Yet their hearts are often not ready for the discussion or thoughts that have. To be compassionate, understanding, and always focusing on the good instead of dwelling on the bad is not something you can gain on your own.

Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. -Colossians 3:8, 12-13

If every little thing gets under your skin then the person you should be angry at is yourself. Honestly, the person with the problem, both mentally and spiritually, is you!!! The only way to overcome this feeling is to learn how to ask God to take it from you. God has been swift to take my ill feelings away after frivolously asking God to help me love more. Only recognizing that you have an issue with anger is the first step. After all how can you fix what you never recognize is broken?

Blinding Light that Gives Sight

Isaiah 58:11 – 12 (KJV)

11 And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. 12 And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.

 

I feel this this pull, God reminding me at every corner how my calling is for Him. I love Him so much. I am not sure how you guys feel about christian dubstep / house music but it is pretty awesome. I am HUGE HUGE music person. I have trained to sing and dance since I was 4.  God will use these talents one day soon. (1 Peter 4:10) I find myself falling in love with Jesus over and over again. Remember that we are the BRIDE of Christ. there is a ROMANCE that transpires. (Gen. 28:10-22, Exod. 3:1-17, John 21:15, John1:29, Ephis. 5:27) God is so AMAZING guys.  You can’t tell me there is no water in a pool I’m already swimming in. He continually is lifting me up when I feel abandoned and unsure. With my business and in my life  I have been overlooking the progress and being thankful for what is happening. Feeling like I need to be farther, and do more, and have faster results, etc. The fact that I am so selfish is so disheartening. How can I even be so ungrateful to my God? I love the romance I have with Jesus. Like my husband he ensures and encourages. Like my best friend He defends me, and lifts me up. Like my lover, He wraps around me and tenderly loves unconditionally. Being my God, He commands my life and graciously shows me how much I need Him every second of every day. Have you ever been so absorbed into something others called you obsessed? I have…Be obsessed with Jesus. Out of all the things I have been told I am “obsessed” with my favorite is JESUS. hahaha from fitness, to business….. my truest obsession is God. As I follow His path for my life, I have found so much happiness at the purest submission to God. Standing my ground even when I have oppressors and nay sayers. Jesus is who defines me, guides me and instructs my life. THANK GOD!!! Blinded by the light (Acts 9:1-19) now I can SEE for real!

Back Again

Galatians 6:9 (NIV) 

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

I have been pressed to write more on my blog. I can’t lie, I have been distracted and caught up with my business. God is so awesome guys. No joke. i’m doing what is known as a run. A run in my business is when you put your head down and grind it out until you look up and your at the goal. My goal seems distant from me, because I set the bar to be at the top. Like life, everything is a roller coaster. I am going through every emotion every day multiple times a day. I have realized the rate of mindset in others and myself. I have recently been speaking to people around the world initiating conversations that are about business and Jesus just take over and the whole conversation roll into one about HIM!!! God is so good guys. I have neglected to write a blog in along while. God has reminded me multiple times. My daughter asked me when  I would write one again because she follows it. Guys she is 9. I was taken aback, I really am slacking if my 9 year old is asking me when I was going to write again. A hard reminder to never forget that God has called me to also continue to keep this going. I have many testimonials to share from the last month or so. Places in which God shows me just how in doubt and times of struggling faith He will always be there. YES, I struggle in points of faith at times. During these points I blast the worship music and remember WHY I must keep pressing forward. My WHY is because God told me to do something. Guess what guys, because He told me to do it, I have the strongest driven passion for it. God will never ask you to do something that He didn’t create you for. He made you specifically to be who you are, to love what you love, to have specific skills and talents, and thought processes. He made you to use all of these to bring Him greater glory and be the fishers of men. (Matthew 4:19, John 21:4-17) All these things is the very thing that drives you, that pushes you, that brings you the greatest joy and happiness in life, what fulfills you and gives you reason to want to live. Don’t allow the enemy to lie to you, telling you that you are unhappy or miserable. GOD is greater. Greater is He that lives in me than he that lives of the the world. (1 John 4:4) What does this mean? This means that whatever you have going on, whatever circumstance is draining you God is greater. That negative husband, nagging wife, friend telling you that you aren’t going to make it, those waiting to see you fail, those who lie about you, or turn their backs to you. YOU BELONG TO GOD…. THAT MEANS YOU ARE UNSTOPPABLE!!! You can feel the hurt f the circumstance but you don’t break to it. I’ve more than taken my fair share before building this business and helping people change the direction of their life and family trees from poverty to wealth (in more ways than just financial). Now that I’m actually doing it I can’t even talk to my family about it, not because I don’t want to help them but because it’s me they want to not even know about it. So to that I say, Luke 4:24, Mark 6:4, Matthew 13:57. A prophet is not without honor EXCEPT in his own town.

Holy Spirit You are Welcome Here

Ok, guys, I know that I have been touch and go on here. I must admit this journey God has me on is awesomely wild. This past weekend was the international convention for my business and company. If you have never been affiliated with a Jesus founded and Bible based company then you haven’t ever lived. Myself and my team were recognized on stage in front of 30 thousand people. All Honor and glory be to God. There is no way I would have been able to do that or lead my partners to do that if I wasn’t following the Holy Spirit. It’s funny how things work out. God has shown me so much transpiring in the back ground. I’ve been given the stories and testimonies and struggles of leaders that are some of the most influential in network marketing and of the world. I saw others for who they really are at points. God revealed to me somethings that aren’t as wonderful. God is of the details. He plans for His beloved to be set up for life in abundance. Subsequently, that means the blessings overflow unto those around them. Couple scriptures come to mind; Psalms  105:15 and 1 Chronicles 16:22 both speak of not doing harm to the anointed and chosen of God. While Luke 4:24, Mark 6:4, and Matthew 13:57 all inform us that a prophet is not accepted in his/her home town. I realized this in a great magnitude when others whom I never thought in a million years to betray or slander me did so behind my back and then smile and plead innocents to me while being promoted through my business because of me. How often do we remember that God is one of details. I thank God for those people. I need them in my life. Without them my life wouldn’t reflect the Word of God. John 15:18-27 is a key factor. At one point even Jesus mother Mary called Him “unstable” and “unbalanced” to the crowd He was preaching to. Matthew 7:16 shows you that you must look at the fruit that a person bears to know their heart. All that has happened in my life and my business has been a strategic plan by God. As I have grown into my walk and strength in my faith I see this more so now than ever before. By His will I was able to attend an exclusive pool party hosted by the leaders of my business. It was here that you realized that these people are the ones who are highly favored by God. So much so that our ENTIRE organization were brought together by God because of how strong and devout our faith in Him is. Because He knows that we would never deny Him and bring others to Him as well as show them how to gain life in abundance with Him. Father God is so AMAZING. and Jesus continuously leaves me in AWE of Him. As the day proceeded and we had tons of fun and networked with the best of the best in the industry, in the company, and as people of faith, God had another plan in mind. There was an impromptu worship. A beautiful pianist sat at the piano and started to play. As she played 2 girls began to sing, though beautiful voices they were hard to hear over the piano. God is one of the details. Soon enough the ones meant to be there where drawn to the room. Even if they couldn’t hear the music. That is when God used my voice. God has blessed me with what is known as a “power house” voice. When He did, Holy Spirit blanketed the room so heavily and thick that a young girl gave her life to Jesus at that moment. Gentlemen, highly respected and successful,  fell into worship and praise. Tears of joyous worship and humbled praise fell from every eye. It was the single most amazing thing God has ever used me for. I pray He uses me again and again and again for bigger and greater things to glorify Him. Don’t take this testimony as a brag. I tell you because God is that AWESOME. Who am I? I am nothing but sin wrapped in flesh if it wasn’t for Jesus Christ who died on the cross for me. I can’t do anything if it wasn’t for God who wakes me up, puts air in my lungs, and tells my heart to beat. I AM NOTHING literally, with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I open my heart and myself and my life to be used by Him for His Glory.

Holy Spirit You are welcomed here. (place hand over heart) Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere. Your Holy presence is what our hearts long for. To be overwhelmed by your presence Lord.

Faith in God means Faith in His timing

How many times have you become impatient with a result? I can tell you that God has been working on my patience for over a decade now. I personally, feel like I’ve only made small progress. When you submit to Jesus, things tend to move faster. How long do you stand in your own way? When God is saying,” If you let Me guide you, blessings in abundance will overflow.” STEP DOWN, and let God in the driver seat. How awesome is it too know that you don’t have to worry about the challenges and responsibilities of controlling things. The weight lifts from you when you accept Him as God of all things in your life. Your just along for the ride.

Today Not Tomorrow

TNT is explosive. It changes mountains,  and unearths priceless gems. TNT is dynamite and people fear the impact.  The only way to set it off is by FIRE. And no one can survive it’s radius without it forever changing them.  TNT is a force unexpected and way bigger than the package it comes in. TNT is YOU and ME and US. There is untold FORCE and emence  POWER upon detonation. Enough TNT together can shake cities that are far off from its explosion, and can be heard in cities beyond them.  TNT is instant and the impact is beyond repair. That is who WE are.  That is what we do.  Not only as ambassadors of Jesus but as business owners, as parents,  and as friends.  NEVER underestimate  the POWER of TNT. Or assume the fuse is no longer lit. Because when you doubt the severity of a massive explosion you get knocked back off your feet. TNT is NOW.  TNT is YOU. Tomorrow is never promised, You’re next breath isn’t promised. So go out today and be dynamite. Don’t miss a single opportunity or doubt your impact to the lives around you. TNT is Today and Not Tomorrow! ~A.M.~

Know the Fruit

Matthew 7:16-20(KJV)

16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

I am sorry guys I have been a little distant, I have been following the instructions of God. He lead me to an avenue that He wants me to use for His will. How many of us understand that when God is moving the enemy will try and deter the plans. Distract you from the Will of God. There have been so many messages that God has revealed to me while having conversations with people or watching them. How do you know a person??? By the fruit of their life!! Many things come into mind. First, how can you figure out a if a fruit is bad? Most times we can see it on the outside. Molding, rotten, and spoiled. Yet there are times when a fruit looks edible, then you bite into it and then you get a mouthful of rotten. How can you tell a person by their fruit?? Sometimes you can see it, blessings in abundance, by their character, by their demeanor, how they are with others. Other times, things seem good but once you break it open, taste it, experience it you realize that the inside doesn’t match the what appears. Know a person by their fruit!!! Sometimes that means having to observe it first hand. Pray for discernment, wisdom, POWER, and UNDERSTANDING. I say this for many reasons. Ask for this in the name of Jesus about the Word of God FIRST, then of others. When you have the understanding of the Word and the Power of God (literally), and the Wisdom and Discernment of the Scriptures then you can take it out into the world and stand without fault.
