A few weeks ago during our bible study group meeting I mentioned that a date on an affirmation card I had on my bathroom mirror had expired. The arrival date [November 6, 2011] of a particular financial goal set in 2008 had come and gone. When the date was set during a book club meeting [we were reading Think and Grow Rich] the deadline seemed achievable. However with every passing month there was not a visible shift in my finances. I continued to think there is still time while vacillating between thoughts of all things are possible and God what's up? Little did I know back in 2008 when setting the goal there were many things in my live that required changing. So often we think if a person has a great career, family and friends there is nothing else desired. That mindset could not be further from the truth. Life in my opinion has a deeper meaning. In 2006, I was fully convinced that I wanted my life to change. I wanted to know why so many people were struggling in every facet of their lives. However, more than wanting to know the why of struggles, I wanted to know how to stop the cycle of struggles in my life and the lives of others. So I embarked on a journey of discovery and came to the conclusion that our thoughts create our reality. Of course Proverbs 23:7 clearly states "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he." Now be mindful, I knew that passage of scripture, but had not engaged in full implementation. My journey to locate my wealthy place (Psalm 66:12) started years prior to 2008 thus exacerbating frustration many days.

 I realize the person who formulated the goal in 2008 was fearful [although appearing confident to everyone] ego focused and very insecure about financial matters. Now here it is I wanted God to send me a tsunami of wealth while enshrouded in junk. Fortunately within the past three years I have been under a major overhaul. Yes, I did want the wealth while under construction and the manifestation did not unfold. I realize that my timeline of November 6, 2011 has nothing to do with God's timeline because I wrote the date based upon how much time I thought it "should" take to achieve financial independence. My reality has nothing to do with God's reality. I have since removed the date off the affirmative statement and I continue daily to say God I thank you for my wealth as I move closer and closer to my wealthy place. I can assure you that the pure voice of God will confirm my destination.

It is so easy to get lost inside of our minds and believe things about ourselves that are untrue. Sometimes we have to step back and consult with the ultimate authority regarding our importance and significance to the Creator of the Universe.  Psalm 139:1-18 O  Lord , you have examined my heart   and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up.You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it,  Lord . You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,   too great for me to understand!   I can never escape from your Spirit. I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning   if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength w
  WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? Oh, wow my last blogpost was in April 2016. It was a video that I did in the conference room of my old office space. It was a day without makeup, but a lot of thoughts. I was consumed with how great people functioned in the midst of being very afraid and was inspired to do a video. My life has changed so drastically since 2016. Little did I know April 2016 was the last month of my life being settled and mundane. My greatest worries were college tuition for my son and ensuring my company had funds monthly to remain self-sustaining. May 2016 ushered in a tsunami of challenges that still seem to overtake me. I have been walking with wobbly water legs since. Some days I just feel I cannot go on. There are no real respites. I just stop and decide to be grateful, smile, laugh, and encourage others at sporadic intervals throughout a given day. I always make a point of telling others that as I encourage you, I encourage myself. The people that receive services throug


As a child, my two brothers and I loved when our sister baked cakes in her Easy Bake Oven. We constantly peeped into the tiny door inspecting the status of our treat when our sister reminded us that it’s not done yet. We were so excited when the palm size pans were removed from the oven and placed on our kitchen table. My brothers and I would say let’s cut it and our sister on cue said it’s not done yet it has to cool. A short time later we said let’s cut it and once again she said it’s not done yet I have to put the icing on. Our perseverance paid off when we gladly ate our bite size cake slices.  Not done yet is an apt description of me. I thought by now I would have it all figured out. I thought that after years of regular church attendance, bible study, counseling, self-help books, and numerous spiritual movies [Finger of God, Furious Love, The Secret, The Shift, You Can Heal Your Life, and many others] all aspects of life that placed me in the not done yet category wou
