Five Minute Friday: RISE



I'll RISE; above every  stereotype that tries to confine, define me, and discredit me. I am more than my environment and worth more than what society has said about me. I'll rise to heights that no one ever thought I'd be. I vow to feed my mind and break every chain off of me. I'll reach to great heights of prosperity. I'll move mountains with thoughts of those that aspire to come after me. Paving the way for the next generation, generation X. Those that will stand up for themselves and demands their respect. They'll learn the true meaning of love and how to fight with no gloves. Their future is depending on me, I'm carry a whole lineage on my back. so I won't give up when things get rough, I promise to look up. Because my help comes from a King. The King that was sent to redeem. So therefore you'll see me RISE right before your eyes!!

Shine!!!!




14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. - Matthew 5:14-16 NKJV

I was out at a restaurant, patiently waiting to be seated. After approximately 35 minutes "BUZZ, BUZZ, BUZZ" off went my pager. I scurried to the host station to return my pager, in exchange for a table. The hostess asked that I wait to the far left, where I would wait for another host to seat me. I stood there looking around in this ever so dim establishment waiting for the host to come seat me. Suddenly the host approached me with a smiling face and sense of warmth, as we walked to my seat he turned back to ask how my day was going.  I assured him all was swell! I could tell that when he asked he was asking from a place of sincerity, his demeanor was that which I had never experienced. Eventually we arrived to the booth I would be sitting at, I sat down and he handed me my menu, and at that very moment I knew this was about to be a divine experience.

 He stood at my table, probably for 5 seconds (that felt like 5 minutes) just looking at me. Then he said "You believe in Jesus Christ don't you? " I said "Yes I do!" He said "Well I can surely tell! You have a very unique glow about yourself!" I was in awe; I didn't understand how he could tell that I had proclaimed Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I mean at this time I hadn’t launched my blog, he didn’t know I had a text message ministry, I hadn't prayed for him, we hadn't had a full conversation, I hadn't started doing videos, and I definitely didn't consider myself to be where I ought to have been spiritually, nor had I ever seen his face before; I mean there was so much inside of me that hadn’t been birth yet!!! I felt so much like a “baby” Christian! I had done nothing that great that would lead him to believe that me and Jesus were best buds! NOTHING! In that moment he poured into me and said things that I had never discussed with anyone regarding my goals, vision, and dreams and prayed for me right in that ever so busy restaurant!! (Talk about obedience!!) I had no clue the light I was capable of bringing into a room without an actual illumination. 
So as I said I did nothing to fantastically awesome to let him know that I was a follower and believer of Jesus Christ. I was just letting my light shine! So I pose these questions to you all! Does anybody know that Jesus Christ is your Lord and Savior? If you were arrested for being TOTALLY head over hills for Jesus Christ, would there be enough evidence to convict you? Or would you be released? Does your life scream I love Jesus or does your mouth just speak it? Does your life screech I'm in love with me (vanity)? Does your life holler M.oney O.ver E.verthing? Does your life roar I'm available? Does your life squeal I'm a doormat? WHAT DOES YOUR LIFE SCREAM BEFORE YOU OPEN YOUR MOUTH TO TELL PEOPLE ABOUT YOURSELF???
I hope and pray that this has been a blessing to your life and has placed a desire in your heart that will cause you to reevaluate what your life speaks before you speak. I love y'all!!!

Let's talk LOVE


Love is as light as a feather but as dense as a piano as solid as a rock, with streams of flowing water rushing from its side. The water never runs out and it never gets muggy, it's always fresh and crisp. Love is like sun rays coming through a window on a hot day, it's like sun bathing in life it self. It's something so incredible, it fills every vein and will unclog every artery. When I think love I think of the color purple because love is a royalty like no other. I've heard love is red, a deep vibrant passionate red but I beg the differ. It is MORE than red it is blue like the deepest ocean and green like the most catered to pasture. It is orange like a sun kissed sky approaching sunset. It is yellow; soft and gentle like feathers on a newborn baby chick. Love roams the earth seeking who it may engulf. It carries a message, unspoken. A treat to be tasted and savored. Love speaks all languages and covers every corner of the earth and beyond. It is Native, Western, Northern, Eastern, Mediterranean, & Southern. It is a continent, has a hemisphere, state, and axle. Love has a longitude and latitude. It collects information like a satellite because it desires to know your every being. It orbits around you, sneaking information so it can treat you better. Love evolves over time, it doesn't stay the same. It grows like a garden that is nurtured, watered, and talked to daily. It's growth is contingent upon the diligence of the farmer. Love is not to be bagged and smothers but to be loose and as free as a morning breeze that rushes through tree leaves. Love is unfailing and unforgettable. It is persistent and without void. It has no imperfections. It stands taller than the highest arch, skyscraper, bridge, wall, and monument. Reaches to the lowest valley without running out. Love is a burst of energy. That never gives up in the middle of a workout. It sweats it out and even sheds blood attempting to work it out. Love puts on gloves and gets in the ring to fight for the championship despite the weight of its opponent. It has no fear. Love carries the burdens of trillions with ease. It causes a natural human being to fall to their knees with many petitions. Love is not cowardly. Love doesn't give up. It knows that it has purpose and that every pain is worth it. It denies itself for everyone else. The reward is greater than the suffering. Love, love, love.....
Sigh....I wish I knew love.

***I hope and pray this has been a blessing to your life!! I had no intentions on publishing anything tonight but obedience is EVERYTHING.
Even after all these analogies given this person still doesn't know love. Wow! This is deep! (I don't always write with me in mind) I am burdened to ask you, what is love to you? Do you know love? Have you experienced this type of love thoroughly explained above? If not why not? What is stopping you from experiencing this perplexed mystery called love? I encourage you to think about it. Comment, share, and subscribe. I love you guys!!

Prayer for Single Mother's



Below is a prayer I posted on Facebook weeks ago after watching a movie centered around Single Mothers, by no means am I trying to discredit any Mother who has a husband to assist with caring for their child/children. But by me being from a Single Mother home the movie touched my heart tremendously and placed a undeniable burden on my heart to pray for Single Mothers around the world. I was obedient in doing so, I ask that before you read this prayer you come into TOTAL agreement with me!!

Father God, I pray that you will provide for every Single Mother in a supernatural way that ONLY a God as great as you can. Please provide them with comfort and rest when they feel weary. I pray that you will connect them with Godly counsel so that when they need somebody to talk to they'll be able to talk to someone that knows you and can pour LIFE into them and not trash! I pray that you cover the Mothers heart so that she will not allow anyone into her life or her child/children's life without consulting you O God! I pray that your Holy Spirit will heal, rejuvenate, and mend the broken pieces of her heart. Help her to understand her worth and that just because it didn't workout with her child/children's Father doesn't mean she is not good enough for love. Teach her the true meaning of love. Fix her mind/heart concerning the definition of love. Speak to her every void, fill all voids that she has tried to avoid! Help her understand that you STILL have a love story awaiting for her! Teach her to be patient and wait on you and not settle for anyone or anything! O God I pray that you will spark a fire in her for you that is contagious! I pray that she learns the power of prayer, because it will get her through ANYTHING! I pray that you will teach her how to speak with love even when she is frustrated with her child/children or life. I plead the precious blood of Jesus over her house right now O God!!! I pray that you will saturate her lips with wisdom and that every word spoken to her Prince/Princess will be for building up!! I pray that she begins to pray over her child/children everyday if she hasn't been. I pray that your Glory manifest in her finances, business, career, & education!!! O God I thank you!!! I thank you! Because every word I've spoken I decree and declare it to be done in Jesus almighty name we pray, Amen!

Battling Depression


Each year about 6.7% of U.S. adults experience an episode of major depression. While this illness is more prevalent in women, it does affect men as well. Depression is one of the most life crippling mental illnesses known to man! This is a very “popular” illness, many celebrities battle this life crippling mental illness. Depression stops people from interacting and communicating with friends and family. It will make you feel the need to isolate yourself; which allows the enemy (devil) to manipulate and interrogate you. It smothers you with toxic emotions of worthlessness and will leave you feeling powerless, and cause you to stop doing simple daily activities like; going outside, combing your hair, attending social events, brushing your teeth, eating, and even bathing. I speak from experience not from a story I heard.


Contrary to popular belief, believers of Jesus Christ are not exempt from facing this terrible illness. There are countless examples of God’s people battling against this very same illness in the bible; Abraham (Genesis 15), Jonah (Jonah 4), Job (Book of Job), Jeremiah (Book of Jeremiah; weeping prophet), Elijah (1 Kings 19), and practically the entire book of Psalms is filled with a lot of outcries from David. 

So can I be transparent for a minute? Well, I must say that I have struggled with moments of depression myself. You may say whatttttt how? Someone like you?? A person full of life and so joyous, but let's be clear, I am all of that and much more, but at the end of the day I am still very human. Depression knows exactly what it is doing, it doesn’t attack the weak, it attacks the strong, those that are always joyous, encouraging, strong for everybody else, and loving. So why wouldn’t people like this be a perfect target? We are a threat to the enemies kingdom!! If the enemy (devil) can stop us from doing these things, then he can potentially take out even more people! 

The Word clearly says in Matthew 10:22 “And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.” Meaning the enemy HATES you, because you are a follower of Jesus Christ therefore he will do practically anything to take you out, why not attack you mind?!?!?!? He knows that if he has your mind your actions will soon follow, but a solider NEVER goes into battle unprotected, he goes with his shield up and his armour on. We should be combating the enemy with one of the greatest weapons our Father has provided to us; his Word! When those thoughts that are not of God pop up in your mind I encourage you to begin “casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,” (2 Corinthians 10:5 NKJV) He has given you power, so you MUST use it!!

***Below I have listed a few scriptures that I find comforting during a moment (call it a moment because I will NOT be there long) of depression. Also, I encourage you to search the scriptures for yourself to see which scriptures God would like to reveal to you to spark a healing in your spirit.

*Psalms 34:17-19 NKJV
The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all.
*Psalms 40:1-3 NKJV
I waited patiently for the Lord ; And He inclined to me, And heard my cry. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth— Praise to our God; Many will see it and fear, And will trust in the Lord .
*Psalms 30:5 NKJV
For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.
*John 14:27 NKJV
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
* Psalms 16:11 NKJV
You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
*Isaiah 41:10 NKJV
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
* Matthew 11:28 NKJV
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
*Psalms 126:5 NKJV
Those who sow in tears Shall reap in joy.


I hope and pray that this post was a tremendous blessing to your life. I would like to encourage you to comment and tell your story and share this post so that others battling depression will know that they are not alone, and that God is the ultimate fixer!!
