Declaration & Exercise of the Week

Hi Everyone!!

This week’s declaration is based on Jeremiah 31:3 and is: God loves me with an everlasting love. He drew me with His unfailing love. I chose this verse because Valentine’s Day is approaching; and people tend to put unrealistic expectations on their spouses or significant others…..and then are disappointed when their expectations go unmet. The only unfailing love is Yeshua/Jesus. His love is not based on 1 day of the year; and it was a decision that He made……regardless of our choices and behaviors. God loves us period. He loves us because He chose to.  It is my hope that when people read and meditate Jeremiah 31:3, that they would get a revelation of the God kind of love…..as defined in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.

The exercise for this week is a half squat using a chair. It strengthens the glutes; which helps to prevent lower back, hamstring and knee injuries. Have an EXCELLENT rest of your week and I’ll see you around!

Declaration & Exercise of the Week

Hi Everyone!!

I hope that all finds you well. My family and I took a little staycation last week, so I’m just getting back into my groove. This week’s declaration is based on Proverbs 4:21 and is: I will keep my eyes on God’s word and see myself in it. Be sure to say it and meditate on it to get it down from your head into your heart. The exercise of the week is hoola hooping. When done correctly, it can strengthen your core muscles; so be sure to pull your belly button into your spine to keep your core muscles engaged. Have a great weekend and I’ll see you around the blog!

Fast from wrong thinking: “I’m Having Such a Hard Time Defeating the Devil.” — Sound Of Heaven

I have read SO many great and encouraging posts today. I’m so grateful for all of you who encourage and speak the truth of God’s word. God bless you all, exceedingly and abundantly above all you could ever ask or imagine. I’m sharing this one; as a reminder to myself. Thank you Sound of Heaven!

Today we’re fasting from the thought that says, “I’m having such a hard time defeating the devil.” LET’S CHANGE IT TODAY 1. The devil has already been defeated—at the cross of Jesus Christ! (1 John 3:8) 2. It’s the fight of faith, not the fight over the devil. Jesus defeated the devil. (Colossians 2:15) BELIEVE […]

PUSH!

The poem below is based on Proverbs 13:12 & 1 Corinthians 15:57

Proverbs 13:12 (MSG) – Unrelenting disappointment leaves you heartsick, but a sudden good break can turn life around.

Proverbs 13:12 (TPT) – When hope’s dream seems to drag on and on, the delay can be depressing. But when at last your dream comes true, life’s sweetness will satisfy your soul.

1 Corinthians 15:57 (AMP) but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory [as conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ.

The title of this poem is PUSH, because that’s what women do, who are about to deliver a baby. The day before my first child was born, my very good friend Angel called me and said: “I feel like I need to tell you this: When you get to the point where you feel like you can’t go on, the baby is about to come.” The very next day, my water broke; and I went to the hospital to have my baby. I got to that point when I felt like I couldn’t go on and like the baby would never come. At that point, Angel’s words flooded my mind; and with one big push, my baby came completely out!

My midwife and nurse were shocked because it was my first pregnancy and they told me that it usually takes a while for the baby to come. This taught me a valuable lesson: you MUST ALWAYS listen to the voice within…no matter what the experts or anyone else says. I also learned that all that I needed to birth my baby was already on the inside of me. I didn’t need to ask anyone anything. I simply listened for the voice of God.

Angel’s words have stuck with me through each of my four deliveries and throughout other challenges in life. If you are in a pushing season, rejoice! Your victory is near!

 

PUSH

Dreams dashed over and over again,

Makes you feel like you’ll never ever win…

hopelessness and depression,

Seeks to drag you down,

But something inside

Says you won’t drown.

You renew your mind,

With God’s encouraging word,

No matter how outlandish or absurd…

Your dream may be;

That’s in your heart,

You saw the end, from the very start.

You pray, you push, and push on through,

Because you know that God promised

the victory to you.

Breakthrough has come!

Your victory is here,

Because you held to the promise,

When it didn’t seem near.

Praise God today and forever more,

For the victory that has

always been yours!

Affirmation & Exercise of the week

Welcome to 2020 Everyone!!!

I hope you’re as excited about this new year as I am; and in great expectation of all things excellent! The first affirmation of the year is: “Everything I do is blessed;” and is based on the following two verses:

Deuteronomy 28:8 (AMP) – The Lord will command the blessing upon you in your storehouses and in all that you undertake, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God gives you.

Deuteronomy 30:9 (MEV) –The Lord your God will make you prosper in every work of your hand, in the offspring of your body, and in the offspring of your livestock, and in the produce of your land, for good. For the Lord will once again rejoice over you for good, just as He rejoiced over your fathers,

The exercise of the week is the foot roll; which can alleviate tension and soreness in the feet. Have an EXCELLENT rest of your week; and I’ll see you around the blogosphere!

 

 

Biblical Laws for a Successful 2020

As you reflect on this past year, or previous years even….are you satisfied with your life? Will 2020 be better than previous years; or the same old thing? What will make 2020 better than previous years? Are you living your purpose; if not, why? These are all questions I’ve asked myself and I encourage you to do the same. I’ve learned over the years that many of our life circumstances are a result of our innermost thoughts, the words that we speak; as well as our daily actions or in-actions. In other words, our habits. When I was twelve years old, I told my mom that she wouldn’t have to pay for my college education; because I was going to get either an academic or athletic scholarship. Five years later, that is exactly what happened.

15822458_10154937931834433_1956243981_n

Why did this happen? Was it luck? Definitely not! It was biblical laws.

Job  22:28 states: “You will also decide and decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and the light [of God’s favor] will shine upon your ways. 

Proverbs 4:23 (GNT) says: Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts. 

Luke 6:43 – 45 (MSG) states: “You don’t get wormy apples off a healthy tree, nor good apples off a diseased tree. The health of the apple tells the health of the tree. You must begin with your own life-giving lives. It’s who you are, not what you say and do, that counts. Your true being brims over into true words and deeds.

In my above mentioned story, I  utilized all of these laws. My innermost thoughts were that, I was a great student-athlete; which caused me to speak it out of my mouth. My actions also aligned with who I was and what I spoke. I practiced basketball every day; even after basketball practice with my team, on weekends; as well as when season was out. As a student, I did very my well in my classes. This process would not have worked out in my favor, had I thought and said one thing; but did another.

This process has happened time and time again throughout my life. Another example is when I was pregnant with my second child. I wanted a home-birth; but my husband wasn’t in agreement with the idea.  I didn’t try to persuade him. I felt in my heart that God would grant me the desire in my heart. All of my check ups were at the Midwife’s office; except for the last one. It was two weeks before my due date; and I was going to have my first appointment with my midwife at the hospital; to see the birth room. Low and behold, about 2 hours before my appointment, my baby boy came right on out at my sister’s house.  God is good and His principle’s work all the time!

As you prepare to cross over into 2020, it is my prayer that your vision for your life will be made perfect! May your minds be transformed by renewal through the Word; and your speech and habits line up with the vision that is within you. As always, have an EXCELLENT week and I’ll see you around the blogosphere! Happy New Year!!
