God What Next?

imagesCASH0577

Often times we find ourselves asking, “God what next?”  The true question we should ask ourselves is, if he answers will we accept and be obedient to his will?  Are we willing to walk away from the people, places, and things hindering the life and development that he wants us to experience?  We have to face the fact that some things must be stripped away and unlearned to get God’s best.  If your favorite saying is, “I’m doing me.” Don’t be surprised if your unfulfilled or in distress.  In Matthew Chapter 10 verses 15-16 we are advised,  “Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”  And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.  In these scriptures we find that we must go before God as a child.  As long as we think we are grown and know it all, we will keep missing the mark.   We are such rebellious creatures of habit!  I am most hopeful that we all will reap the benefits of submitting ourselves fully as the children we are unto the Lord.  Look out for life changing results Ladies!

God is able!

No Worrying Allowed

thCAUA1MIJHave you ever spent the day worrying in full submission to the very issue you cannot even control?  I know that I have.  The truth is, nothing got better from my worrying. Outcomes are determined by our faith, trust in God, and our attitudes.  Our true position in a trial is to listen to what God is telling us to do and learn from the adversity.   Worrying creates doubt, missed opportunities, and missed blessings.  When worry shows up, we are to arm ourselves with God’s word and focus on the goodness of God.  Its not hard to think on the last time God was good to us and our loved ones; not to mention, he manifested beauty all around us, from the clouds in the sky to the flowers sprouting from the soils of the earth.  We have to let God lead the way with every area of our lives.  Life is better that way.

 

Matthew 6:25-27

Therefore I tell you, don’t worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body,what you will wear.  Is not life more than food and the body more than Clothes?  Look at the birds of the air, they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not much more valuable than they?  Can one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

Well of course the answer to the last question of the scripture is  NO!  So Ladies its time to let God truly have his way.  This decision determines everything that we are faced with.   Much luv and God bless!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Focus is Key…

Keep pressing Ladies and stay light filled.  God is our refuge and our strength.  Pray on it, keep your mighty faith and trust completely in Jesus.  Listen for his instructions.  He knows what’s best.  Keep renewing the mind with his word and thinking on things that are of God.  Use his creation all around you to keep focused on his wonder and not the cares and stress of the day.

 

The Wisdom Trees Named by my son Alijah Cockrell

The Wisdom Trees
Named by my son
Alijah Cockrell

Reflection:  Today’s picture show the three trees in the backyard that my children climbed , had reflection time under, and sitting upon their thick branches.  I reflect on when the three trees first started out looking like thin trees that could never qualify as a sturdy climbing tree.  Over the last fifteen years they grown into might trees that shout, “somebody climb me!”  My kids and there friends did just that.  The trees remind me of us as children of God pressing each day and moving upward.  As we continue and live by the word and learn from the lessons of life, we become greater and surprisingly stronger than we were just years before.  Those trees became a safe haven to my children and their friends as we too should offer that same feeling of support and safety to others.

Much love and mighty blessings to you and your!!!

Happy Independence Day America!!!

thCAIQ80X2    It’s a day to reflect with family and friends on the history of our country and it’s present day position.   Share with the youth the beauty and challenges of America and how they play an important role in our future.  God is in need for Women, families and communities to move forward according to his plan.  So I challenge all of us to step our game up and walk a little taller and trust in God even more to make our impact on this country strong.  This country, our society is dying to know God’s truth and to come into who they truly are.   It’s a hard task, but somebodies got to do it.

God Bless and enjoy the day like it were the last of your days!

Keep Standing

thCAUA1MIJ

Today is another day to choose to stand and trust in the full capabilities of our Lord Jesus.  Take your mind off the struggle and place it on the promises of God.  The mind is such a battle field filled with thoughts of today and even of the past.  Choose to hold fast to God’s unchanging hand.  He can walk us all through any situation and keep us from destruction.  Keep standing, but if we stand, we MUST trust, have faith and believe in his word.  We must choose wisely, it determines the finish.  Make your faith MIGHTY today and keep it that way!  Stand, don’t give up!

Food for Thought:

1 Corinthians 16:13

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.

Philippians 4:8-23

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

She Has Yet to Answer the Call…

imagesCA1T0NB3

She is radiant.  Her thoughts are so careful and calculated.  She fears the Lord and leans on Him for all her strength.   When she speaks she commands the attention of others.   Passion flows from her lips when her heart is fueled to utter her inner wisdom.  God motions her to stay alert and aware of things on the horizon for her testimony will need it’s detail.   Many say she has the wisdom of a well traveled soul.  Her fight is contagious and her words stick like glue.  Her story is pure evidence of God’s love and strength poured out from above.  Still she doubts she has been called.  Still she believes her gift has yet to be revealed.  She is already groomed for what people all around the world are dying to receive.

I pray that she answers the call over her life.

 

this way

Message:  We as Women have to answer the callings over our lives.  People are waiting on us to move and to share our lives and gifts with them.  Everyone’s call is unique and in no way will it be cookie cutter.   Some will be called to go into places they have never experienced before or help people with issues one could never imagine.   Once we accept,  God will lead the way and begin the life long adventure of doing the will of God in our lives.

Romans 12:6-8  We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; 7  it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8 if it is t0 encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, doit diligently if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.

Pray, activate your faith and get where you are meant to be!  Let’s do it!
