Look Within!

The same message continued to echo in my spirit throughout prayer this morning. So many women and men look to people like Beyonce for strength, courage and even beauty. Not hating on Bey/Mrs. Carter. But women what about looking within you? What about looking at who GOD created you to be? What about tapping into GOD and seeing the beauty and strength within you? Men, did you know that it takes supernatural strength for a mom or mother figure to raise you? It takes courage for a woman who is your aunt, sister, cousin, spouse or girlfriend to encourage and stand with you? It takes a woman of wisdom to have a shoulder for you and say what God has said to say. It takes a woman of strength to even keep silent when God says you have to fumble a little but you have to get it on your own? So women, you are overcomers!! If you believe yourself to be watch the 20minute documentary! If you don't believe you are an overcomer, then all the more reason to watch the documentary! Men, if a woman has helped you in any way, watch and share the documentary! Not even for you but because you love the women GOD has placed in your life! ALL OF THIS, is what Power of Femininity is really about!

Are You a Part of the 91 Percent?

Good Morning Everyone,

No, this is not a typical message. But then does God have a typical message? I shared this message with some yesterday individually but God has laid on my heart to share with everyone what God is doing in the lives of the three people featured in the link below. It is a short 20 minute documentary but is very powerful. Please share with everyone God lays on your heart to share. Both men and women can benefit. I BLESS GOD for all of you and your faithfulness.

Deriving at Purpose

Mark 1:38

38But He said to them, "Let us go into the next town, that I may preach there also, because for this purpose I have come forth."

Jesus took time away from the crowd to spend time in prayer with our Heavenly Father. All the disciples were looking for Him wondering where He went and why. And when Jesus responded He told them where they were going next and explained His purpose.

Now if you believe Jesus to be Lord and Savior of your life, then you believe Him to be your example of how you ought to live. Two things are happening here. 1) Jesus spent time in prayer with our Heavenly Father and  2) this is the way He derived at His purpose. So basically, the ONLY way you will derive at your true purpose in life is to spend more time with God the Father as Jesus did. And when He reveals it to you, you are then to go forth just as Jesus did. Here's the deal. Jesus was alone when He understood. He was not with the crowds of people and His purpose was not derived at through the acquiring of external things. Your purpose can ONLY come from God. So if you do not understand why you are here and what you are to be doing with your life, then there is only ONE way for you to discover it and that means getting closer to God. It is through faith that one finds purpose.

What is scary right now is that in the last week or so there have been three people under the age of 30 who have taken their lives and yet they appeared to have everything and be the sweetest people. No, all of the facts are not known but one thing is known, when you understand why God placed you here and you are moving forth in it, you have a new level of motivation, a new drive and you will not let anyone or situation stand in the way of you accomplishing why God placed you here on this earth. Outside of giving God praise, which is the common purpose we all share, you have one that is unique to you. Those who don't understand their purpose may nag at you because you are not going in the same direction they are. But when God reveals the purpose for your life, then it will not matter what everyone else is doing.

There is nothing wrong with having things but if you have been searching to find your purpose through the acquiring of external things then you are missing it. Because that is NOT where your purpose can be found and the devil is a liar!! As said in His word, God will bless you with things so you can give Him praise and also bless others but do not mistake acquiring them as your purpose in life. Deriving at your purpose will ONLY COME when you GO BEFORE THE THRONE OF GOD.
