Confidence can be misconstrued as arrogance, know-it-all or some other title that is sent to diminish who you are internally. Today, I challenge you to be your best self inspite of who’s looking. You are made to be strong, incredible, and capable! When opposition comes and tries to blow your candle out… Speak louder, laugh harder, run faster because God made us triumphant, victorious and gifted with the ability to do our best!! SELAH
One of the greatest challenges in being “great” is developing patients. Patients to keep learning, keep pressing, keep smiling, keep being kind, to keep being hopeful even when things look to be going opposite of your way. Patients is one of the fruits of the spirit which is love.
True love says that “For God so loved the world that He gave” so giving is the personality of God and the personality of love. Why is it important to know this??? Because if you are in a relationship with God, then you must understand that love makes you wait because love perfects your gift before giving it to you.
For example, I can run to Walgreens and pick up any card and any gift, put it in a random bag and give my husband the present. But… because I love him, I go to the store look for a gift that would make him smile. I take the time to go up and down each aisle until I find something he would love and enjoy. Lastly, I choose a bag to wrap this gift into something that makes the present shine. If I love my husband enough to do all of this, how much do you think God loves us.
Yes, God wants us to have what we need and desire, but He doesn’t want to give it to us haphazardly. God takes His time, chooses the best gift with the best wrapping delivered in the best time so that it’s not only appreciated but cherished. Today, exercise patients and watch God bless you with a gift greater than you ever expected.
This song perfectly depicts the journey of a winner! enjoy
Every morning you and I have the opportunity to wake up to stress and anguish or expectation and possibility! The choice is yours, with the life God gives you an incomparable gift called POSSIBILITY. You and I have the opportunity today to choose Joy over frustration, Peace over anxiety, Longsuffering over a short temper, Kindness over curse words, Love over hatred. But you have to answer the question ” What do you see?” If you choose negativity, you’ll receive negativity.
In the word of God it is said like this Joshua 24:15- Choose ye this day who ye will serve! Through our thoughts, words, and vision for the day, we give power to what we want out of our life. Choose today as the first of many where you see greatness, prosperity, and abundance in your life. Not just for tangible items but of love, peace, and wellbeing. Selah

There are some worship experiences that I can not help but post over and over again. So many of us as Christians privately cry out to God to keep our focus on Him so that we can become everything that God wants us to be… but inside we are broken. The world wants us to believe that there is a pain that comes with brokenness, a shame that is enveloped in brokenness, but I’m here to tell you that the devil is a LIE. The word of God says broken is beautiful, and when we abide in God, in a place no one has to know about… Psalms 91 calls it a “secret” place. Then that brokenness, ugliness, un-Christian likeness, can be made whole and beautiful! We all need calibrating in our lives; no one is without fixing and asking for forgiveness.. so with this worship, I want to help someone release themselves from the pressure we sometimes carry in life. Enjoy
There are going to be both high and low days on the road to success. Take each day with fortitude, know where you are going by making a plan … then on the days where your faith is being tried, you can put the vision in front of you and muster up the strength to keep moving. Sometimes you must tell your feelings to take a seat so that you can stand in the midst of your oncoming victory!
Sometimes our greatest battle rests with ourselves. We know who we want to be, should be, could be … but there is something we battle which keeps us from reaching potential. This month I have challenged “self” and pushed to a point of desperation by cutting off something I love TV! Why, because I have to teach my flesh that it will be denied; my calling supersedes emotion or need to be coddled by entertainment. I had to tell my flesh yes, you may be emotional, or stressed, but you will perform at maximum capacity because we are representing the Kingdom of God, and there is work to be done. Comfort comes at the end of the day when you have maximized every opportunity to glorify God with the gifts and talents you were blessed with. Its time to stop working so hard to be comfortable and strive to be exceptional. The journey starts now…
Why is it that the world seems to be the only one embracing the power that we all are made with. Let me tell you something, we were not put on this earth to be imprisoned by our bodies, mindset, relationship, job or anything else that may serve as a distraction from our purpose. The word of God says we are incredibly made. If you are saved you have God living inside of you! Do you know what that means, when you wake up you are representing the kingdom of God! So tell the defeated, unworthy, depressed, stressed out persona it has to go because it is not of God and God is king. The devil has no place in this kingdom, when you get down on yourself remember child of God whom you belong to.
So many times a compliment or acknowledgment parachutes us off the cliff of normality and lands us where we know deep down inside we belong… the land of excellent. Our “best self ” is waiting anxiously to be unleashed to the world. That THING makes you special, sets you apart from the person to your left and right, it is waiting to be released to the world. Now is the time to find out how to unlock the “best” and apply it to every possible moment of your life. The you that you are created to be needs life and here’s how to do it. Write down your passion, what need do you see yourself feeding? Once you find passion, research what it takes to accomplish it, then do it!. That’s it, the world deserves nothing less than the best you. How long are you going to hold back; its time to see your best, and live in it.
