ENCOURAGEMENT

WOW, WHAT A HUGE & LIFE CHANGING WORD!!

Encouragement is a word that we cannot live without.  Even as newborn babies coming out of our mothers womb, being introduced to the world for the first time.  The medical staff Encourages mom to push, to relax while cheering her on.  As, the baby is coming down the birth canal, people are shouting, Encouraging words to the           newborn baby like you can do it, don’t quit & your almost there.

To Encourage means to give support, confidence or hope to someone.  Research has proven that when a child has grown up in an Encouraging and Supportive environment, their odds of succeeding in life is far greater than someone who has not.

Today, I want to Encourage all of my Beautiful Sisters, Mothers & Daughters.

You are doing a great job! God has a plan for your life.  It is much higher than any thought or deed that you can Imagine!

There are times when life gets tough.  When it seems like you cannot see your way & you might even ask yourself, Why me?

Can I share with you three words, Why not You?  Whatever, you have hoped for, whatever you have believed for, & whatever, you have prayed for;

Don’t give up, Don’t walk away, Don’t throw in the towel because A  Change is Coming!! & It is Going to Happen!!

P.S. To All of My Wonderful Sistas who utilize social media to uplift , to build up & to Encourage, Don’t Stop, Don’t Pause, because You might be Saving the Life of Someone’s Daughter, Mother & or Wife!!

 

This Thing Called Faith & Ministry

If I were to give my own personal definition of Ministry it would be, One who is available to Faithfully serve.

It was over 25 years ago when I made the decision to serve in ministry.  Although, I was exposed at an early age to Ministry, it could have never prepared me for what I was getting myself into.  A young single woman, eventually marrying, the pitfalls, the problems, as well as the persecutions one goes through in Ministry.

Personal calendars are organized around the Ministry.  Your children are carefully scrutinize by others because they are the Pastor’s children.  Last but not least, once you announce your intentions to the people, you must follow through!

By no means am I complaining or trying to discourage someone from the call of Ministry.

Ministry has it’s Benefits.  One of the most amazing benefits I have experienced in Ministry is being able to see lives changes right before your very eyes, marriages that were on the brink of divorce being brought back together and lastly communities transformed through your service in the community.

If someone were to ask me what are the prerequisites that you must have in order to be successful in Ministry.  One prerequisite I would definitely share would be a whole lotta Faith!!!!

 

This Thing Called Faith & Motherhood

The definition of a Mother is someone who brings up a Child with care & affection.  To look after kindly and protectively sometimes excessively.

Being a Mother of three girls, between the ages of 11 & 25, At times the  job of motherhood can be extremely overwhelming.  Between school, friendships, extracurricular activities and beauty transformations, I would like to ask my Mother, “Mom, how did you  do it”?

Looking back over my childhood, I remembered everything being so accessible.  My sisters and I walked to school, extracurricular activities were after school at the very same location and we played outside with our neighborhood friends until the street lights would come on.

Now, walking in the shoes of my mother, having to prepare balanced meals, making sure  homework and chores are done & relationships are nurtured; Being a mother is nonstop.  Motherhood is 24 hours, 7 days a week and no breaks allowed.

I believe God has granted us this time as Mothers to assist in preparing our children for what’s to come (The Real World).  They will experience disappointments, rejections and even persecutions.  But we must constantly remind them that They can be whoever they would like to be and They can do whatever they would like to do.

There are no limits to the gifts and talents that God has placed inside of them.  The Sky is the Limit.  All that God requires us to do is Just Believe and Have Faith!!

Thank you, Mom for Being such an Awesome Mom!

Happy Mothers Day to All the Awesome Moms!!!
