And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, if ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Matthew 17:20 KJV

Hello, hello, my gratitude friends and family! Welcome to my blog on all things gratitude. Today I am excited to blog about miracles. This month at Liquid Fire Ministries & Worldwide Prophetic Kingdom Ministries we are praying on, teaching on, and believing God for our miracles. Do you believe in miracles? Let’s talk about it.

Let me just say that I believe in miracles, and I am in expectation of every miracle that God has for me. When I looked up the definition for the word miracle, the one thing that remained consistent was that miracles are divine and inexplicable, they break all natural laws. Here are a couple definitions that I found:

Miracle: Free Dictionary

noun

1. An event inexplicable by the laws of nature: wonder.

2. One that evokes great surprise and admiration:

Another definition is:

Miracle: Merriman- Webster Dictionary

1: an extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs: the healing miracles described in the Gospels.

2: an extremely outstanding or unusual event, thing, or accomplishment; The bridge is a miracle of engineering.

3Christian Science: a divinely natural phenomenon experienced humanly as the fulfillment of spiritual law.

Miracles happen I believe to increase our faith in God, and the spiritual realm. There are books, television shows, and many other documented accounts of miracles. Miracles of healing, divine interventions of lives being spared by accidents, angels appearing, and miracle money appearing in bank accounts etc.

Jesus performed many miracles in His time here on earth, and many people believed because they experienced or saw the miracles. Jesus says in John 20:29, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (John 20:29) We are blessed when we believe in God, when we exercise faith without any evidence of what we are believing God for. When there is no sign that a prayer or hope for a thing can even happen, that I believe is an open door for a miracle.

Belief allows for God’s hand to move in any situation in our lives. When God moves on a situation, miracles happen. If you have a situation that breaks the natural laws of this world, unexplainable events, something that cannot be interpreted, that is a miracle from God.

Oftentimes, the world tells us seeing is believing, we have to see things to be assured of something. It’s just not that way with God, when it comes to God, believing is seeing. It’s seeing beyond where we are right now, it’s being grounded in faith, grounded in our belief, and having a heart of expectation in what we are believing God for.

For some of us it may be hard to exercise faith, maybe we just don’t believe in God, or maybe we don’t feel worthy, or even the matter may seem too big. Let me say that we all are worthy, God wants to show Himself mighty in our lives. Jesus performed miracles everywhere He went, and He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Our miracles can and will happen!

I don’t know what you may be in need of, or what you may just desire in your heart. It could be peace, healing, finances, or even salvation, let me tell you God is able. Take your concerns to Him, He is not man, He doesn’t judge, He forgives, He heals, and performs miracles. I just love Him!

I am grateful to God that He cares enough about us to love us when we cannot love ourselves. He waits patiently for us to come to Him, to cast our cares on Him, and to believe Him for miracles.

I thank God for each and every one of you that have taken the time to read my blog on today. I am excited for what God is doing for us all in this season! Be encouraged my gratitude family and friends, our miracle season is here! All Glory & Honor to God!

Scriptures on Miracles: Mark 9:23; Mark 10:27; Luke 8:50; Luke 18:27; Jeremial 32:27; Luke 1:37; Luke 9:16-17; Matthew 17:20; Psalm 9:1; Psalm 139:13-14. I pray that these scriptures will be a blessing unto you. Also tune in to WPKM on Facebook for more teaching, as well as Liquid Fire Ministries.

A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children; and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the righteous. – Proverbs 13:22

Hello, my Gratitude friends and family. Welcome to my blog on all things gratitude. I thank you for taking the time to stop by and have a read today.

I am grateful today for God blessing me to become a licensed life insurance agent. It has actually been one year since I received my license, and what a year it has been. I have learned so many new things, and I have been blessed to meet and help so many new and interesting people. I am truly grateful.

Life insurance is something that I have always had an interest in doing, recognizing a long time ago the understanding that is needed in our communities regarding life insurance and its benefits. It’s community work that I have found to be very rewarding. The ability to impart knowledge that could change the lives of families for generations to come is an indescribable feeling.

One of the most challenging parts of being a life insurance agent is getting individuals, families, businesses, and young people to understand the need for it, and that it is not just about death, there are other benefits to being insured. There are so many myths about life insurance and preconceived notions, that no one wants to even have a conversation. The topic of death definitely isn’t a conversation anyone wants to have, but life insurance isn’t all about death benefits, it’s also about living benefits.

The ability to help families have comfort in knowing that there are living benefits that will carry them through a difficult time is a blessing. Living benefits can create a family legacy that could last for generations to come, and all for less than what it would cost most of us to buy a pair of gym shoes, a designer bag, or ladies that hairstyle. Let’s put it this way, if you can afford your lifestyle then you can afford life insurance.

Again, I understand and realize that life insurance is a very sensitive topic, my desire isn’t to bring you down, but it’s to bring awareness of what life after loss can look like when you are prepared. Insurance provides living benefits for long-term care, also the cash value that grows from life insurance can provide down payment assistance on a new home purchase, send a child to college, or whatever you choose, the money will be there to meet the need.

I am here to stop the outdated mindset regarding life insurance. It’s time to enjoy the living benefits of life insurance and all that it can do to be a blessing to you as well as your family. Don’t let the lack of knowledge keep you from preparing, I am here to help you understand. Schedule an appointment with me today and let’s talk.

Many blessing to you my gratitude friends and family and thank you again for stopping by to have a read of my blog on all things gratitude.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this blog post, as well as my other blog posts.

11 Apr

Hello, my gratitude friends and family. Welcome to my blog on all things gratitude, I thank you for stopping by to have a read of my blog today.

Today, I am doing something a little different with this blog post. I will be discussing a current topic of conversation on a celebrity couple, (it’s not Will and Jada, that’s just too much to deal with). I am a big current events person; I love to discuss current topics. I love to talk with people about current events because of the depth of the conversations, and the wisdom that comes from such conversations. I love it! I also love hot topic segments, sitting at the table (not the red table), and discussing things that can enlighten us all and bring about growth, I am big on that.

I am grateful for the opportunity to blog about this topic of Russel and Ciara Wilson. I am grateful because this topic showed me that when God begins to do work in us, our hearts, and minds change completely.

Recently, there was talk about Russell Wilson being a square, a goofball, not someone that Ciara could really be attracted to. In this conversation, it was also said that Ciara only dated and married him because of his money, (she does have her own money but okay). It was also said that a woman like Ciara would not leave a man like Future for a Russell Wilson type. Shocking right, I thought so too.

Now my first thought on this was, this is such a ridiculous statement, it doesn’t come from a standpoint of someone understanding that growth happens, needs, and wants change, especially when we allow God into our lives. Growth in God says, “that type of man/woman is not for me anymore.” I know this on such a personal level.

The fact that Ciara prayed for a husband, (and we all have heard about the prayer), says that what she thought she wanted, (which was a man like Future), changed as she prayed, and allowed God to change her heart. I believe somewhere in her prayer there was a yielding that said, “Not my will but your will Lord.” There’s so much to be said about giving up what we want, what our flesh desires, to have what God wants and has for us.

Russell Wilson is a man of God; he has declared it openly and has shown it. When is it lame, or being a square to love your wife, as God loved the church, Ephesians 5:25. To be faithful, to love and cherish your family, and walk uprightly before the Lord, Psalm 84:11. That’s square? The world is calling right wrong and wrong right. Growth in the Lord will change our hearts, our conversations, and our prayers. What we thought we desired in a spouse, or friends, will definitely change, God will show you the heart of a person. I am a living witness to this trust me, He did all of this for me.

When I tell you that it’s not easy or popular to say not my will Lord, but thy will be done, it’s not. It is a daily process of denying this flesh of mine, I literally mean daily. I know that when you stop wanting to do the easy, pleasurable, popular thing, life is richer, it’s peaceful and joyful. Is it being lame, no I don’t think so, is it easy, definitely not, popular no, not in this world. What I do know is that it is so well worth it! I believe Ciara Wilson is living proof of that. I think walking with God is pretty cool.

I thank you my Gratitude friends and family for reading my blog post. I pray we all will have the strength to let go of our will and allow God’s will to be done in our lives. Blessing to you all.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this blog post, as well as my other blog posts. Let’s talk.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV

Hello, my gratitude family and friends. Welcome to my gratitude blog on all things gratitude, hope, and thankfulness. My prayer is that when you finish reading my blog you will be encouraged, full of hope and have a thankful heart, for all that God has done and is doing in your life.

As we begin this new week, this last week in March, I pray that it will be full of joy and peace. I pray that there will be no distractions, no chaos, or confusion for anyone this week. I thank God that it will be a week where our trust and assurance are grounded and rooted in God.

I am so grateful for the word of God; I love the word of God. It keeps me and lifts me up. When my thoughts start to get too carnal, with the cares of the world, the word of God gets me back into focus. My go-to scripture for some time now has been Proverbs 3: 5-6, trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding, in all thy ways, acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy path.

It’s a powerful but simple scripture, meaning it gives simple instructions. It’s pretty easy to follow because God makes it plain; 1) Trust in the Lord with all your heart: Trust means: a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something. I believe God, He is reliable, His word is truth, He is our refuge and strength, He is our God. His word is our assurance, we shouldn’t have any problems trusting Him. I know for me He has proven Himself time and again. What about you?

2) With all your heart: we should trust God with all that we are, our whole being.

3) Lean not unto thy own understanding; what I see and perceive in the natural is not the same as what is happening in the spirit. God tells us in Isaiah 55:8-9, For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. We cannot go by what we see, think or feel, we have to stay close to God to understand what God is doing in our lives. It may be hard to grasp that God knows what’s best for us, but He does.

4) And the last instruction, in all thy ways, acknowledge Him and he shall direct thy path. Acknowledge Him, know that He’s there, seek His counsel, talk with Him about the matter, and listen for an answer, don’t move until you get one. When we acknowledge Him, the scripture says He shall, (shall in the Bible is a promise), direct our path. Direct is to control the operation of; manage or govern. God promises to be in control of, to manage our paths if we would trust in Him with all our hearts, to not lean on our own understanding, and acknowledge Him. I want God to manage everything in my life. What about you?

We have our instructions; we have a blueprint for our lives. Yes, He does know our lives better than we do. I am grateful that God knows us, He knows our struggles. That’s where our trust comes in, it may not seem like it’s working for our good, but we have to believe that it is.

Thank you, my gratitude family and friends, for reading my blog today. I pray that we all will decrease, and that God increases in every area of our lives. Not my will Lord, but thy will be done, I pray that as we say this, we will begin to see the full manifestation of all that God has for us. God bless you all, and many blessings to you this week.

You didn’t come this far, just to come this far! Don’t you dare quit! – CEO For Women
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak – Isaiah 40:29

Hello, hello my gratitude friends and family! Welcome to my blog on all things gratitude, I appreciate you stopping by to have a read on today!

Spring is here, yay! Even though it doesn’t feel like it here in Michigan, I can still feel it in the air, I can literally smell it! I am feeling the newness all around me, and I hear God saying, “Spring forth into the new!”

So, I saw the caption above on Instagram, and I was immediately inspired to share it with my gratitude family and friends. Shoutout to all of the amazing people I follow on Instagram! This particular post was from @ceoforwomen, they have very encouraging posts, and messages. If you are not following them already, I encourage you to do so, you won’t be sorry.

The posts that I see on Instagram are so full of wisdom, ideas, and information, it blows me away. Sometimes, you know we can get weary in well-doing, the bible tells us in Galatians 6:9, “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” Sometimes though for me it’s like, “I am not seeing any results, or it’s taking too long, is it really worth it?” I am here to tell you firsthand yes, it is. Don’t you dare quit!

The post from @ceoforwomen says, “If you knew what was headed your way you would stick it out a little longer.” Our faith needs to see it, we have to see beyond where we are right now and stick it out a little longer. We are literally walking by faith and not by sight you guys. We have to stick with it! Don’t give up and don’t give in, keep going! We shall not faint! We shall reap!

When I read the post on Instagram, I immediately went to post it to my story. My caption was, ‘Don’t you dare give up, God is a God of suddenly.’ I believe God is about to operate in the suddenly! I believe that suddenly the new home is here. The new car is suddenly here, (I have been seeing keys jiggling for over a week). I believe suddenly the new clients will be walking in your businesses, yep, they are coming, get ready. Suddenly, new creativity is going to be all over you, suddenly dreams and visions will manifest. Suddenly, money will be in your bank account to complete the project, no more delays on the building of new businesses. Suddenly, you are at your grand opening, suddenly you are officially a franchise owner. Yes, suddenly the loan has gone through, suddenly that millionaire is going to invest in your business, and suddenly the contract is signed. Suddenly the book is done, suddenly it’s on the New York Times top 10 best sellers list. The suddenly of God is here, if we can just see beyond where we are right now.

Things maybe a little crazy, and the obstacles that are being thrown your way don’t make sense, stay the course. We cannot quit! You, me, we have come too far to go back. God is a faithful God, and not one word that He has spoken over our lives will fall to the ground.

I pray that the Lord will bless each one of you richly in every area of your lives, my gratitude family and friends. I love you all with the love of the Lord. Thank you for stopping by to have a read of my blog on all thing’s gratitude.

Happy International Women’s Month

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone. – Audrey Hepburn

Hello, my gratitude friends and family. Thank you for stopping by to have a read of my blog on all things gratitude. I am always so grateful for the ability to write and share my thoughts with you all. I am also grateful to my gratitude family and friends who leave me comments on how a blog post has blessed them, and the encouraging words to continue blogging. Thank you all so much.

I am grateful for March; spring is in the air, and it is also Women’s History Month. Women’s History Month is commemorating and encouraging the study, observance, and celebration of the vital role of women in American history. I am not sure if I did a blog on Women’s History Month last year or not, and honestly, I hadn’t planned on blogging about it this month. The reason that I did is that we as women, we are pretty amazing. As I was sitting on yesterday, I had so many thoughts on how women today are changing the world. I mean not just locally, but globally, as we have been doing for so many years.

My thoughts centered around how as women we are so very beautiful. There’s never a need as women to compare our beauty to another. God created each of us so uniquely different. Our bodies are differently made, we are different sizes, and we each have beautiful but very different skin tones. I must say, we rock our uniqueness very well. We walk in strength, and assurance of who we are, all while looking amazing. We are all God’s creation, and He is our master designer. Celebrate the beautiful woman that you are and give God the glory!

I celebrate how multi-various we are, we can wear so many different hats. We are wives, mothers, single moms, sisters, daughters, friends, we wear our hats well ladies. We are all out here sharing our gifts and talents with the world. I celebrate our courage, our innovation, our inner strength, and our power. I encourage you to keep going, shut your ears to the naysayers, and tap into what God told you to do and get the job done. My sisters, we called to be worldwide, we are daughters of the King. We are built and destined for nothing but greatness. Women in greatness have come before us, and greatness shall continue on through us.

I am grateful for my CEO sisters, my sisters in the business world. I am grateful for my sisters who are entrepreneurs, for my sisters that are home raising our future leaders, I am grateful to you. I am grateful for my sisters in ministry, who are building God’s spiritual armies, and fighting the spiritual battles through prayer, and teaching God’s word. I am so grateful for you, and I am praying with you. I am grateful for our young millennial women, who are changing the way we do business, in this tech world. May you all continue to change the world with your creative ideas and business savviness.

I love the beautiful quote from Audrey Hepburn, she is another one of my favorite people. I of course had to change it a bit. I pray that for beautiful eyes, we will look for the good in others, that we will see our sisters with the eyes of Christ; for beautiful lips, that we will speak only words of kindness, that we will lift our sisters up in prayer, speaking life over them, and everything that they set out to do. For poise, I pray that we each will walk in our God-given purpose, that we will command a room with our mere presence. I pray that we will walk with the knowledge that we are never alone for our sister’s love as well as God’s presence is always with us.

I pray we will never doubt our ability to not only change the trajectory of our lives, but also the lives of others. I love you my sisters, and I thank God for you all. Happy Women’s International Month.

God bless you all and thank you for reading.

“The expected is what keeps us steady. It’s the unexpected that changes our lives forever. – Shonda Rhimes

Hello, my Gratitude family and friends, welcome to my blog on all things gratitude. Thank you for following along with me as I express my thoughts and gratitude on an array of things.

I was thinking about how January 2022 has come and gone. The first 31 days are too soon behind us, and I wonder how it panned out for everyone. I feel like I am pretty on track, of course, I am learning new things every day. I have found that new assignments and goals come with great discipline, responsibility, and drive.

One of my favorite people is Shonda Rhimes, you guys know, the creator of some of our favorite drama shows on television. Such as Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder, and Station 19 just to name a few. I watched her on Master Class and that is where I really noticed her, and I liked the things she had to say. Especially concerning the writing process of her scripts, and just writing overall. The one thing that she talks about that I could relate to is doing things even though you may be afraid.

I am grateful that I learned even though I may fear something I have to do it anyway. I learned from listening to Shonda, that some life-changing things can happen when you kick down that door of fear. By saying yes to the things that you are afraid to do. 1) You will begin to feel like you have a sense of control. That thing that you were afraid to do no longer has any control over you. 2) You will realize that you are now climbing that mountain that seemed so huge, and scary. And you’re doing it, and that is a big deal! 3) You will feel powerful for going forward even though you were afraid.

I am grateful that as I head into February 2022, I am going in fearless. There are some doors that God has opened for many of us. These doors are doors that many of us have prayed to have opened. Now God has opened them, and we are apprehensive or afraid to walk through them. Or God wants to open a door to bless us, or bring that dream to pass, and we are again, apprehensive or afraid to go forward. This is the time to push through. Push through afraid, push through with anxiety, push through with tears in your eyes, but push through it all. Pushing through means I am moving forward and praying until something happens, P.U.S.H.

The sad thing to me is some people never do the things that they dream to do because of fear. Fear is crippling and horrible. It stifles our growth, and our destiny. I can speak on it because it was once me. I encourage you to get moving, to climb the mountain that holds your destiny and purpose. Don’t allow small, minded individuals tell you that your dreams are too big. They don’t know you really, if they are saying things like that to you. Pray, focus and stay consistent and I promise God will do the rest.

I heard Apostle Dr. C. Lewis, of Liquid Fire Ministries, (she is another one of my absolute favorite people) say, “We are earth-shakers and risk-takers. This is our season of increase.” I pray we all will be increased in our confidence, boldness, and faith.

Remember my gratitude family and friends, “The expected is what keeps us steady. It’s the unexpected that changes our lives forever.” I challenge and encourage you to be a breakthrough believer, go do something unexpected, take some risks, and change your life forever.

God bless you all and thank you for reading.
