"My people are destroyed....

Man fears what he has no knowledge of. Once he understands it, the fear is gone. the mystery is taken away once knowledge arrives. It's the same thing with the matters of faith when we don't understand how to apply your faith in a given situation, we become skeptical, judgmental, afraid, and unbelieving. But once we understand how it works, the confusion is removed, the mystery is taken away. Amen,

Chose Wisely...

How dare you make light of someone's commitment to God, just because you are there...it seems like some people have added Jesus to their lives..instead of  submitting to Jesus in your life. Truthfully.....

Singles, Being with God does not come with conditions, judgement, or how many events or activities you attend, your relationship with God is personal, not conditional.  Although he said do not forsake the fellowship/Assembly of the brethren, it does not mean that God loves them more and you less,first ministry for us singles are often ignored by congregation that are not trained in meeting the needs of them. All of the Prophet's of the Bible sought God Alone, and were witnessed to by Christ without the distraction from others. In your solitude;

Love God with all your heart no matter how much they talk about you, oust you and try to ignore the gifts God has given you. This just shows their lack of maturity in the things of God, and do not know Love.

Singles, as we add another chapter of our Lives, The Blessed Life, we are reminded and assured that we matter whether they accept us ot not...forever in his arms.....

Remember live your Life Loved and keep the Faith always....

Dear Life, Thank you

Problems and predicaments come to us all. There's no sign saying, "you must be this tall..." to ride on the emotional roller coasters that take so many of us for a spin. The bad news is that there are times when we're passengers...whether we like it or not. The good news is that we can always choose to get off at the next stop...(Douglas Pagels)

Single's,  as we look back on the things life has taught us, and continue to press on through this gift called life, remember that you have total control over how anyone treats you. Demand in a gentle way to, not entertain foolishness from those who are old enough to know better, but still continue to live in chaos. Separate yourself away from (Vampires) who suck the life out of you, and anyone who is not bringing joy in your life. Let them go, and be content and happy knowing that you are where you supposed to be at this set time. And it's for such a time as this that you were born (Pastor Chris)..

Say to yourself, I know who I am, I have the life of God in me, I function with the Spirit of Excellence.  You are enough and there is nothing on this earth that is more important than you peace of mind and happiness.

Carol, Live Your Life Loved and remember always to keep the faith....

You Don't Deserve A Name

Fear you have always consumed me whenever I got fired from a job or raising my children as a single parent, or the past failed relationships. I thought it was me, or something lacking in me, but I realized that it was the enemy planting lies in my mind about who he was trying to destroy.

The biggest challenge I've had was my relationship with my Mother and the love I felt I was missing from her, that I so desperately needed as a young woman growing up. When I speak to my sisters, we all bear pain/scars from our past of not having the loving kind of relationship with her or the reaffirmation of her feminity and love for her daughters. But I realized as I've grown as a parent. That she herself has been through a painful past that she still bears scars from. There were times in my past and not to distant future, that I did not fill adequate enough to be in a healthy relationship because of the abuse I suffered as a child. My sister and I experienced this traumatic experience when we were young and I think that we are in some way as we became parents, handling it the best way we can.

Fear, all the lies that you have told me because of my past. I have turned them into my fuel to fail forward. The jobs I've gotten fired from in the past, that was their loss for not recognizing an extraordinary individual. I function with the mind of Christ and refuse to be a victim, those that bless you will be blessed and those that curse me will be cursed Genesis 12:3; Wow! What an amazing Intro, or shall I say the truth about the past of a not so perfect childhood.

Those that hurt as my Pastor friend said, hurt people, hurt others. Singles, if you are experiencing hurt or things from your past that leads you to the same dysfunctional type of relationships. Today it ends here, stands in front of your mirror and say "Carol" I love you, you are a beautiful person, an excellent Mother; you will have a healthy family life, and success in your career, nothing shall prevent the Will of God for your life. Satan I cast you out of any situation that concerns me or my family.

The friendships that were not authentic, God will replace those imposters with authentic bonds. Live your life loved regardless of who's in it. As long as you have Jesus Christ of Nazareth nothing can stop you from becoming who he has called you to be, lack is not your portion, poverty is not your portion; Favor locates you everywhere you go!
