I Am Not Ashamed Of Jesus Christ

Good Morning My Loves,

Happy Sunday! Today, I want the world to know that I am not ashamed of Jesus Christ. He is my refuge and my fortress; my God. Live to be approved by God, not the world. It’s better to have God approve than the world applaud. Jesus died for you in public so don’t just live for Him in private. Matthew 10:32 says, “Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven.” Dying for us is the most He could do. Living for Him is the least we can do.


We share so many things other than the word of God on our social media pages. Worried about what someone may think or say. God has not called you to FIT in. What does it profit a man to gain the whole world but lose his soul? I would rather stand with God and be judged by the world, than stand with the world and be judged by God. I am a child of God and I’m not ashamed to profess it. It’s time to get out of your comfort zones. You think Jesus was comfortable when He was taking up the CROSS for you? Our sins may have put Him on the cross but His love for us kept Him there.


Do not be ashamed of the one who gave their life for you. We celebrate people for a lot less. When God is your focus the opinions of others is of no concern. I am not ashamed to say I need Jesus in my life. I would rather live my life as though there is a God and die and find out it isn’t, than to live my life as though there is no God and die and find out it is. I challenge you today, if you are not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ share this post as much as you would share a joke, or memes or gossip. Let’s make Jesus Christ famous. He is a role model. Be abundantly blessed my Loves and don’t be ashamed to share the word with others. I know you can do this because….Great Is In You!

Praise God In The Sunshine And The Rain

Good Afternoon My Loves,

God deserves praise when the sun is shining in your life and when there is rain. Everybody wants happiness nobody wants pain, but you can’t have a rainbow without a little rain. There are two times to praise God…when you feel like it and when you don’t. Praise Him in the midst of the storm, when it’s dark and dim and the lights go out. Just hold on my Loves…. God is just switching off the lights before He throws a surprise party in your honor.


To be able to dance in the rain, you must first learn to praise Him in the storm. In this life, you can’t wait for the storm to pass to praise His name, that’s when you need Him the most. Don’t just pray when you’re in trouble. God wants to hear from you when your life is going great and when you’re going through grief. Don’t be a fair weather Christian. He deserves to be praised! Just know after the rain He sends a rainbow. He is just preparing you, because after the storm, He will calm you. After the night, He blesses us with a beautiful new morning. And after an end there is a new beginning.


Don’t let the enemy confuse you with problems and remove your focus from God. He will try to keep you busy, confused and depressed where you feel like you can’t pray or don’t have time. Don’t be fooled, everyday seek God from whom all your strength comes from. We may not like the storm, but our heavenly Father knows we need the rain to cleanse us. I want you to be abundantly blessed and a blessing to others. Let everything that has breath, praise the Lord. I know you can do this because….Great Is In You!

Stand Up For What Is Right Even If You Stand Alone

Good Morning My Loves,

A marvelous Monday morning to you. With all that’s going on in the world, today, I hope that in your heart of hearts you stand up for what is right, even if you stand alone. Wrong is wrong, even if everyone is doing it. Right is right, even if no one is doing it. “The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything,”Albert Einstein. God did not call you to fit in, but to stand up for what is right. It’s easy to stand with the crowd but it takes real courage to stand alone.


“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or an animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way”-Dr. Martin Luther King.  Whenever one person stands up and says, “Wait a minute, this is wrong,” It helps other people to do the same. Stop sitting in silence and saying, “Someone needs to do something about that.” That someone is you. Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty, truth and compassion against injustice. Imagine if people all over the world would do this what an impact we could make. Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same. Make a mental note of this…What’s right and good doesn’t come naturally. You have to stand up and fight for it…as if the cause depends on you because it does.


The time is here for you to take a stand for what is right and stand against what is wrong. No longer can you be complacent or go with the flow or wonder what to do. The time is always right to do what’s right. Stop sitting on the sidelines and stand up and get in the game. If not us…who? If not now…when? “We can no longer afford to pass the torch of change to another when we ourselves didn’t fan the flame” K.L.K. If we don’t stand for something, we will indeed fall for anything. It’s time to stand up my Loves, time to take a stand. Be blessed in abundance and be a blessing to others. I know you can make a difference, take a stand and change the world because…..Great Is In You!


Don’t Be Ashamed Of Your Story It Will Inspire Others

Good Afternoon My Loves,


Your Purpose
If you woke up today happy and healthy you’re blessed. As long as you keep waking up in the morning, that’s evidence He is not through with you. You have a purpose. The theme of your life story is the platform God will use to speak through you for His kingdom. Your life has purpose and your story is important. Your dreams count and your voice matters, you were born to make an impact. A life well lived is measured by those moments when you give of yourself, more than you think you can. There are some things that YOU came here to do. That only YOU can do. Don’t let your old story define you. Owning your story and loving yourself through the process is the bravest thing you will ever do.


Be Encouraged
What you have experienced in life does not define you, therefore let it refine you. Don’t keep quiet to assist another’s comfort. You are not the victim rather the victor, don’t be ashamed of your story it will inspire others to heal. It can be a key to unlock someone else’s prison. I have survived things that have killed others therefore my life is a message of hope and encouragement. The past is just a story. Once you realize this, as a result it will have no power over you. Someone may be in need today to hear your testimony to give them courage to leave an abusive relationship, or to help them heal from childhood abuse. Or someone may need to hear your testimony to know it’s time to free themselves from the mental jail they’ve been in. When you are ready to heal God will give you courage to share your story. When your story is heard, how you were able to get past your past, you will help heal others. That is when you will realize your greater purpose.


Be Stong
I’m braver because I have fought giants and won, that’s the David in me. I’m stronger because looking at my children’s faces and wanting better for them forced my strength. I stand taller because I’m a survivor and I refuse to bow before anyone but God. Sometimes people haven’t apologized to you because they are ashamed. Forgive them anyway! Sometimes you may have to be okay with an apology you never received. Forgiveness frees you and unblocks your blessings. It’s not about anyone else, it’s about being a better you.

On this day, right where you are I want you to be encouraged. Take it one step, one moment, one day at a time. Invest in yourself…you can’t afford not to. I want you to know that God loves you so much. You are not alone, He is always with you. Be abundantly blessed my Loves and more importantly a blessing to others. I know you can do this because…..GREAT IS IN YOU!

You Are Amazing

Great Morning My Loves,


Has anyone told you lately how amazing you are? Well let me tell you…YOU are amazing and capable of amazing things. Ephesians 2:10 says,”For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” You were created be do great works. It’s time to start believing in yourself, to invest in your own stock and watch how you increase. Stop telling yourself I can’t do this, or this is too hard. Nothing is impossible for God, impossible is His specialty.

If you don’t go after what you want, you will never get it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you never step forward, you will remain in the same place. You may face defeat in life, but never let yourself be defeated. I believe in you. You are truly amazing and have so much to offer this world. The pain you have been through can help someone else going through pain now. Listen to what God is laying on your heart and let Him guide you. God has the most amazing plan for your life, just trust, believe and have faith.

Today, just know that you are someone’s reason to smile. Even when you don’t see it, you are inspiring others by having courage to walk in your destiny. Never give up, never loose heart and always keep pushing. God loves you more than you can possibly know. Be abundantly blessed my Loves and an amazing blessing to others. I know you can do this because…..GREAT IS IN YOU!


Lord, We Need You Now

Good Morning My Loves,


I come this morning with a heavy heart. I am thankful this morning for being blessed with another day of life although many didn’t get this same opportunity. It’s time for us to wake up! Lord, we need you now more than ever. If you have never prayed before, it’s of utmost importance that you start. Our world needs us to pray like we never have before. We need the Lord like we never have needed him before. It is no longer acceptable being a spectator when your life, your lively hood are on the front lines. What happens in this world affects us all. I say this all the time NO GOD, NO Peace….KNOW GOD, KNOW Peace.


Not a second, or another minute. Not an hour, or another day. But at this moment with my arms outstretched, I need you to make a way. As you have done so many times before. Through a window or open door, I stretch my hands to thee come rescue me. I need you right away. -Smokie Norful. Thank you Lord for the times You came through for us when we didn’t even realize we needed a rescue. The giant in front of you is never bigger than the God who lives in you. Invest in Eternal Life insurance with God. It’s the only policy that has no monetary cost but the benefits are out of this world.-Keisha Lewis Key.


Today, seek God with your whole heart. This world needs prayer warriors to set up on the front lines. Our very existence depends on it. Lord, please keep us safe from danger and safe from harm. Watch over our families and our friends Lord. We need you desperately. Amen. Be beyond blessed my Loves and a blessing to others. I know you can do this because…..GREAT IS IN YOU!



You Have Not Failed Until You Quit Trying

Good Morning My Loves,


A Winning Wednesday to you! I feel it, today is going to be a great day full of God’s favor. I declare and decree it! Whatever you set your mind to, you can do it. 97% of the people who quit too soon are employed by the 3 % who never gave up. Don’t give up just because things get hard, that’s when you give it all you’ve got. Today tell yourself these words, “I will not quit, I will keep pushing, I will be the victor, I can do this, I am so worth it!” When you feel like throwing in the towel use it to wipe the sweat from your face and keep pushing.


What you should realize whenever the intensity in life seems to turn up and things really get hard thats a sign that you are closer to your victory. Just look up and the finish line is just up ahead. Give this life all you’ve got. You can’t fail if you don’t quit and you can’t succeed until you start. Yeah, I hear you…you’re tired right? You can rest at the finish line when you’ve won, when you’ve completed the task. Right now, it’s time to put in some work and get your dreams accomplished. Do you know there is greatness in you? This is your pep talk for the day. Blow the whistle and get in the game…don’t rest on the bleachers. It’s time to shine my Loves, show this world what you’ve got.


Prayer for today: Dear Heavenly Father, Sometimes the day can’t pass quickly enough, while others fly by at lightening speed. I can’t seem to keep up with the pace of this world. I’m tired, Lord. I’m weary and my spirit is weak. I’m trying my hardest to take the next step, to keep trying, to move forward. But, between me and you Lord, I feel like giving up. Help me to remember the reason I began. Help me to see the purpose behind your plan. Provide the necessary grace, keep my eyes set upon your face. To find strength for that next step…to discover faith to keep trying. To pause for this moment, regain my strength and move on. In Jesus Holy name we pray, Amen.-Rachel Wojo.


Today, my Loves  it’s time to walk in like Goliath and fight like David. Use your faith and don’t quit. One day you will reflect on this moment, make yourself proud. Be beyond blessed  and a blessing to others. I know you can do this because….GREAT IS IN YOU!


Happy Independence Day

Good Morning My Loves,


Happy Monday and Happy Independence Day! The Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776 says, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that ALL men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Galatians 5:13 says, “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.” Be thankful for this day my Loves. We have come a long way, yet, we still have a ways to go. Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you. Jesus Christ and the American Solider. One died for your soul and the other died for your freedom. Let us remember those who have gone on before us and let us thank God that such wonderful people lived.


Today, look around and thank God you were blessed with another day to enjoy your independence, your freedom.  Rachel Wojo has a wonderful Prayer for America I would like to share with you. “Father in Heaven. We, the people, in the land of the free and home of the brave, desperately need You. Oh that we would leave our ways of seeking to be blessed and instead seek to bless others. We beg for your guidance and wisdom for our leaders. We ask You to protect our land from enemies, both within and without. And we praise you for the FREEDOM we have through the blood of Your Son. May Your plan be the desire of our nation. Amen.”


Be abundantly blessed my Loves and more importantly a blessing to others. In your prayers, pray for our country. Pray that God keeps His hand on America. We need Him now more than ever. I know you can do this because…..GREAT IS IN YOUR FREEDOM AND YOU!


Don’t Be A Victim, Claim The Victory

Good Morning My Loves,


Saving Grace Sunday to you all. Today is going to be marvelous, I speak, believe it and receive it. Today is the day that you retire your position as being the victim. Dr. Steve Maraboli said it best, “Stop validating your victim mentality. Shake off your self-defeating drama and embrace your innate ability to recover and achieve.” It’s time to forgive yourself, forgive whomever hurt you, let go of the past hurts and move on. The one person you are with forever is yourself, that relationship is eternal. Until you love yourself, truly love yourself, you are not capable to love anyone else because you can’t give what you don’t have….YOURSELF.


As a victim of domestic violence, I had to tell myself I will not be the victim. No one deserves to be hurt by a spouse, significant other or friend. Let me tell you this and make sure you hear me clearly…..if they do it once, they will do it again. Do not allow yourself to be someone else’s place to release their anger. Some people will never change and you have to accept that and change yourself. Everyday tell yourself, “I am not what happened to me, I am what I chose to become.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 says, ” Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking. It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trust, always hopes, always perseveres….LOVE never fails.” If you ever wonder what love should be or what kind of love you deserve refer to the Bible, God defined it perfectly.


Even in a storm something beautiful can happen when you feel your world is falling apart. A humility, a nobility, a higher purpose emerges at just the point when our knees hit the floor. You can choose to let whatever hurt you have faced define or confine you, or you can gather your courage move on and leave it behind you. Let today be the day you learn the grace of letting go, the gift of good-bye and the power of moving on. Be abundantly blessed my Loves and a blessing to others. Be kind, you never know what battle someone is fighting. I know you can do this because…..GREAT IS IN YOU!


Jesus Died For You in Public, Don’t Just Live For Him In Private

Good Morning My Loves,


A SUPER FANTASTIC Saturday to you all. I hope today you look up and thank God for giving you another day of life. Romans 1: 16 says, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” God has not called you to fit in or be silent. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, it’s not your final destination. You will never influence the world trying to be like it. Jesus died for you, will you live for him? Wagering your eternity is a long time to be wrong. “If I’m wrong about God then I wasted my life. If you’re wrong about God then you wasted your eternity.”-Lecrae


I would rather live my life as though there is a God and die and find out it’s not, than to live my life as though there is no God and die and find out there is. The devil is busy and he comes to steal, to kill and to destroy. Do not be deceived, he cares nothing for you. Satan wants you to be ashamed of the Gospel, he wants wants you to embarrassed to witness to your friends. We can share everything under the sun and moon on social media but when was the last time you shared the Gospel? We must all do our part and spread the word. We wonder why the world is in shambles it’s because God has been removed from everything. Know God…know peace, no God…no peace. Can you hear me now….good.


Know this my Loves, we must all come together for the greater good. What we do today prepares us for the future, our future, the future of our kids and family. Don’t rest on your laurels, nothing wilts faster than laurels that have been rested upon. Remember, God loves you so much He thought you were to die for. Will you live for Him? Today my Loves be blessed and don’t be afraid or ashamed to show it. Be a blessing to others it costs nothing but the reward is priceless. I know you can do this because…..GREAT IS IN YOU!
