#KingdomGals: Speak Your Truth!

Who are you? Who are you becoming? Many of us women may be walking around still finding ourselves; not all of us have it completely together.

Now is that a bad thing? Not entirely! Are you working on your issues? See; none of us are perfect! But, we want to be working on becoming better! Right? Why do we want to stay stuck? Or boxed in? As women that are seeking a close relationship with God; we want to be transformed into the woman that can walk upright and become whole.

Becoming whole is knowing who we are in Christ and beginning to walk into it and stay focused on staying in close proximity.

In doing this; we will have to look within and begin to sort out past issues and work through each one. In working through our past issues; we are clearing our path into future happiness! Who wants to be happy and free from past trials and tribulations? Our future shouldn’t have to sustain our past; it’s time to clear the way for God to work! Give Him room to bless you!

The Bible is a great tool for us to begin/continue to read; so we can not only get encouragement, motivation, inspiration, empowerment, knowledge and understanding; but we will also gain insight into the foundation that has been laid out for us to follow!

There are endless stories for us as women to read such as Adam & Eve, Ruth, Naomi & Boaz, Lot’s wife, Sarah & Abraham, Hagar, Tamar, Mary & Joseph, Mary & Martha; etc.

These stories are going to give us insight into how we should/shouldn’t handle ourselves as wives, sisters, friends, mothers; etc. For instance, when we read about Eve, we find out that in order to be blessed and stay in right standing with God; we have to submit to our husbands! Don’t you think if Eve listened to the instructions of her husband/and obeyed God; she would’ve lived a much better life? Don’t you think they would’ve still been in the Garden of Eden?

We also want to surround ourselves with other like-minded women that are on similar paths! She needs to be working towards reaching the goal on becoming whole! Yes we can inspire others along the way but if you have those that are constantly pulling you down to their level; it’s time to part ways.

We all won’t be on the same level but you want to be able to still advance without distractions from those that should be cheering you on and pulling you up as they pull themselves up!

Can I be honest with you? I haven’t always had it all together! Everything that God has blessed me to be able to do; at first I didn’t want to do any of this! Tell my stories; share of my losses, admit I did things wrong, look within and tell of me being a fool for so long; etc. I can go on for days!

But guess what? I wanted more for my life! I wanted to be made whole and that required work from me! I had to look at all my past issues and failures and deal with each one! I had to allow God to begin a new work in me and allow Him to fix whatever was broken and then I had to be obedient to the call and assignments; He placed before me. Was it easy? Heck No! But guess what? It has all been worth it!

I am not the same person! I don’t ever want to be her again! I love the new me! The one that God created me to be; I just had to get in right standing with me and allow Him to pour into me.

This is my truth! What is yours?

“Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31-32

#SpiritualSundays: The Process is Necessary

“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 (NKJV)

Getting to the promise land; wasn’t an easy task! The Israelites had to go through the process! Getting to the Cross; wasn’t an easy task! Jesus had to go through the process!

One thing that I love to do is break down the meaning of words; so we all can be on the same page. What does the word process mean?

Definition of process:

  1. “a systematic series of actions directed to some end: to devise a process for homogenizing milk.

  2. a continuous action, operation, or series of changes taking place in a definite manner: the process of decay.”

Both of these definitions give you the meaning of the word process and a visual to aid you in getting the full meaning of the word.

This allows you the ability to know that going through a process isn’t going to be easy! You won’t have that microwave effect; pop it in and in 2 minutes your popcorn kernels are complete and full of flavor! Life and the trials and tribulations you go through won’t have that effect…

The Israelites were in the wilderness for 40 years! Jesus fasted in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights; they both had to go through their own individual process! The levels of what they had to endure were different; but the outcome were similar in nature. The Israelites were attempting to get to the “Promise Land” and Jesus was on his journey to the “Cross”. Both of these encounters were necessary because it teaches us the path that they each had to take to get to their end result! Their blessing!

But guess what? They had to go through the process! Jesus’ time in the desert wasn’t as extensive has the Israelites because “He was about His Father’s business”, He had been groomed for it..(process)…Jesus didn’t come on the scene; until He was well into His 30’s; what do you think He was doing in that time? Being groomed and processed!

The Israelites had been in captivity for many, many years; they had learned behaviors that had to be unlearned! Removed and burned away! How are you held against your will, taught to bow down to foreign practices and be able to just walk into “The Promised Land” ready to walk into your God given purpose; full of blessings and favor, with old baggage? How are you going to be effective for the Kingdom of God?

So many people; including myself want(ed) the microwave (fast) effect to coming out of captivity (trials-tribulations-wilderness-darkness-etc

We want to lay down one day and wake up the next with a changed attitude, a renewed heart, a new lease on life, favor that was endless and more abundance than we can stand!

But guess what? The process is necessary to remove and discard of everything that you picked up and allowed to attach itself to you along the way!

When Jesus was crucified it was a 3 day process before He rose!! But catch this; He had to go through the process of being tempted, being in the wilderness fasting and praying, raising up His disciples and having many of them turn their backs on Him, turning water into wine, walking on water, casting out demons; I can keep going but I think you get what I’m saying!

Jesus has to do something’s! He had to be processed to be prepared to be crucified and then lifted up!! He had to go through the process to get to His finish line!! His victory dance!!

The Israelites’ process took a little longer; 40 years is a long time to be in the wilderness; but guess what? God took care of them the whole time!! He provided for them; he clothed, fed them and gave them shelter! But guess what? They complained and didn’t want to listen to His instructions! They argued with Moses and Joshua more than they listened and followed instructions!

God gave them the tools necessary to get to the “Promise Land” the keys to open up their destiny but they cried, complained and rejected the “process”..

Were they this defiant when they were in bondage? In captivity? Do you remember them saying that they were better off when they were with their oppressor?

How many of us think that our lives were better when we were living as we wanted to? When we were sinning and fornicating? Going to clubs and grinding all up on people; we didn’t even know? Stealing, cursing, doing and selling drugs, etc.. The enemy loves to hold you captive, remind you of the “good ole days” when you were “free”… How does any of those types of behaviors have you free when you’re being held captive and racking up strong holds, generational curses, and soul ties?

To rid of everything that isn’t of God! You have to go through the process of removing it and cutting it off! Will it be easy? No.. Will it be fun? No… Will you enjoy it? No.. But catch this; it’s all worth it; in the end!!!!!!

Jesus got seated at the right hand of the Father; after His process…The Israelites walked or some may have crawled into the “Promise Land”, their entourage was a little light because of their process; but they eventually got there…if they would’ve got on board sooner than later; their process could’ve been quicker!

How much longer are you going to complain? How much longer are you going to fight the process? How much longer are you going to pout and be disobedient?

Let me be the 1st one to tell you; you are holding up your process! You are holding up your blessings, your favor, your abundance; all because you want to have it your way! Guess what? You have to rid yourself of everything that you carried with you while you were in enemy territory! That baggage has to be disposed of! All those un-godly thoughts and practices you picked up while hanging out with the enemy; has to go!

How can God bless you when you’re trying to figure out ways to flip it and make it multiply? How can God bless you when you thinking of ways to sleep your way to the top? How can God bless you when you scheming to take out your competition?

Anything that is “worth” having is going to come with a process!! You want to be refined! You want to be renewed! Washed in the blood! Come out of the fire; untouched!! You have to go through the process!! The “promise land” comes with obedience, blood, sweat, tears, sacrifice and a burning off of the old man; that old woman!! Are you up for the challenge? The process? The re-awakening? This only happens when you say Yes to Our Heavenly Father..the choice is yours!! What do you choose Life or Death?

#Spiritual Sunday’s: I Need A Break….

I Need A Break

Scriptures:

Luke 22:42-46 and Matthew 26:36-46

Have you ever gotten to the place where you’ve just cried out to God and said; Lord I need a break?

People need a break from so many things!

People

Places

Things

Responsibilities

Life

Trials & Tribulations

Need I go on?

As a single mom we often need time from being the only one holding up the family and making sure everything is working as it should!

We have multiple responsibilities and it’s not a walk in the park! Many times; we get stuck and lost in the wilderness and need a hand to reach in and pull us out!

We are always sacrificing ourselves and our needs to make sure our child or children have and the household isn’t lacking! Society always wants to slide in and let us know that we cant be a dad because were not male; and I ask the question; if not us then who? I need a break!

Just like single moms needing a break and a chance to catch our breath.

Jesus often times required breaks from his disciplines to get his mind right and have His quiet time with God. Some of you may be asking what did Jesus need a break from?

Jesus not only had the weight of the world on his shoulders, but He had to deal with so much and still train and prepare his disciples to take over when he left them!

He had to endure the pain that 1 of his own would be the one to deceive him and become tempted and sell him out for a few coins! Can you imagine what that felt like?

Just imagine for a moment; that the very ones that you sought out; to go on the most empowering journey of a lifetime; stabbed you in the back! They sought out temporary desires instead of lifetime blessings! They sought out those things that can be here one minute and gone the next! And they forgot that only God can give the things that are everlasting!

 

Where would you be if God granted Jesus what He was asking? Where would you be if God took that weight of off Jesus’ shoulders?

 

Is not easy to serve God! I’m going to say this again so that the people in the back can here me! It’s Not Easy to Serve God! If it was easy; everyone would be doing it! Do you know how many people have walked away from God because of people? Church hurt? Because they haven’t studied the word for themselves and someone told them it was going to be easy!

He is going to bless you with cars, clothes and money! But, what many don’t know is that you have to lay down that old life! Walk into a new one with Jesus and the Holy Spirit on each side and God front and center leading the way!

 

Acknowledging and serving God is two very different things! Anyone can say that they believe in God! But are you living right?

Are you following his commandments? Leviticus 22:31 “Therefore you shall keep My commandments and perform them: I am the Lord.” This isn’t about being perfect either; it’s about being determined and believing that God wants the best for you; that you will have to make some sacrifices to press through. Philippians 3:14 says this: “I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” When the enemy seeks to take you out and sift you like wheat! You are going to have to know how to stand tall!

You will have to be strong and courageous! Joshua 1:7 “Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.” (NKJV)

 

When the journey looks rough and you feel a break on the way; pray…

Father God I want my life back! I’m tired of living a defeated life! I’m tired of feeling like I’m alone and not loved! I want the enemy to release his hold on my Mind, my Body, my Soul and my Spirit! Right now I want my past to be the past! I want all my thoughts and my emotions from years before to be released in the atmosphere and set free! I no longer want to live in bondage! I want to be free. In Jesus Mighty Name; Amen!!

2017 Has Taught Me….

With each new year that comes and goes; I believe it’s necessary to have reflection. Reflection of how to go forward, what you learned from the previous year and what you can do to be a better person.

How else do we expect to grow and change our outlook if we don’t do a self-evaluation?You see it can’t always be about someone else! What did you do? What didn’t you do?

You see for me I didn’t speak up enough; I just allowed things to play out as they may. Could I have said something? Yes, but many times I chose not too. I for one like my peace and keeping my sanity in check. What was it for you? What did you let slide; or did you speak your mind? How far did it get you?

I have never been a fan of new year’s resolutions; why? Because life always happens and by February all those resolutions are out the door! But one thing that I have incorporated over the years is looking at how my year went and what I could change going forward.

In 2017, I can honestly say I learned lots about me and people around me.

#1. I learned that I wasn’t made to fit in but I was created to stand out.

This one right here was a biggie for me! You see people will always try to control you if you let them! They want you to play by their rules, be who they want you to be; and I learned that has never and will never be me. God has uniquely made you for a special purpose; don’t allow people who don’t know how to handle that; derail you!!

#2. That if you want to know who is really in your corner; break something!

Wow, this was a real challenge for me that I didn’t even sign up for! But hey, I made it through!!

Being a single mom with a broken ankle-foot; was absolutely no fun! That is a story in itself! I have never been one to have a large number of friends; weirdly, I like it that way.  But I really found out during this challenge that the small number I thought I had was just a mirage! Sisterhood is something I have always enjoyed writing about because it is being flung around like an old high school jersey.  When will women really take a stand and unite for the greater good? Friendship seems like a thing of the past; that has been replaced for networking and somebody’s next come up! How far can you get me up the ladder? Who are you connected to; that I can connect with? Is that what we have been reduced to? It’s time to change that circle; maybe expand it out a little bit….

#3. That NO MATTER WHAT GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL.…..

Look you don’t have to believe it; or in HIM. But when I tell you 2017 has been thus far one of the most challenging years for ME. My life could’ve gone so many different ways with the obstacles, challenges, trials and tribulations that came my way; BUT GOD, kept me through every last one! When people walked away; HE still had my bad! When people told me no; HE said YES!

So you see; this is just a couple of the things that 2017 has taught me and I am so very excited to still be here and I am eagerly awaiting  to see what 2018 has in store! What about you?

What has 2017 taught you?

What have you learned?

And what will you change going forward?

Life and Death – Who Do You Miss? #SpiritualSundays

Written by Guest Blogger: Angie Bee

November is a truly special month for me.  It was the month that my first daughter was born in 1990.  It was the month that my mother died in 1999 and November 2012 was the month that my Lord let my husband down the road to find out about me.  November, it is a time for the leaves to change colors and fall to the ground and it is the month where we gather together as family to enjoy a Thanksgiving feast.

Let’s look at the month of December!  Now, that was the month where by grandparents wed and spent nearly 50 years together as husband and wife.  December allowed me to witness my daughters as they were baptized together at Hartford Memorial Baptist Church in Detroit Michigan and December is the month that Christians gather together to celebrate the birth of Christ.  December is also the month that we celebrated the life of my mother, and her funeral service still lives in my heart nearly 20 years later.

Life and Death.  Think about the people that entered your life this past year and consider the deaths; the new opportunities and the doors that were closed. Reflect upon the ebbs and flows in your life this year and take a moment to see how God led you and kept you through it all.  You may be considering your “New Year’s Resolution” during these last two calendar months of the year, but are you considering the path that God has for you during the New Year?

Pastor Joel Osteen preached a message today (November 26, 2017) that talked about stepping out on faith to walk a path, even if you don’t have the destination or the details of the journey.  Abraham told his wife that they were moving because:  “The LORD had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you”. –  Genesis 12:1 (NIV).  If I told some of my relatives that God told us to move, their first response to me would be “WHO GONNA PAY FOR THAT?!”

Well, during 2017 I realized that I was stepping out on faith much more than I had been doing before, and I am excited about this growth.  I see that God has enlarged my territory, he has given me more wisdom and my discernment is quite active now!  WOW!  Thank you Lord!  I have truly grown in 2017 and my “resolution” for 2018 is to keep on stepping out with faith to follow the will of God!

Back in June of 2006, I was given the opportunity to grow.  The Jericho Broadcast Network granted me a daily streaming radio show where I shared scripture, interviewed recording artists and became the very first radio show in the United States to feature Holy Hip Hop music.  The Hottest Home Hotspot WORLDWIDE earned listeners from Africa, Australia and the United Kingdom, it was syndicated over seven additional radio networks in multiple 24-hour time slots, and I was honored to earn an award from the One Accord DJ Alliance as the Best Female Radio Show host in the country.  PRAISE GOD!   That show is now ending and a through the union between my husband and I, there shall now be a new life!

Beginning in January 2018 we invite you to log on and participate in a new talk show entitled “Gettin’ Over The Hump with Angie BEE & Bartee”.  Join us on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 – 7:30 pm EST as we stream live on our page at www.Facebook.com/AngieBEEandBarteeProductions  This show is the brainchild of my husband Bartee and I am excited to be by his side as we give life to this new outlet!  Our goal is to share the goodness of the Lord and offer encouragement to others as they attend to “get over the hump!”

The New Living Translation of Proverbs 18:21 says “The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences”.  Death will occur.  Doors will close and opportunities will end and finalize.  We miss those that have died, but we must retain what we learned from them and pass that information along to the next generation.  Just keep your eyes on God, take His hand and walk the path He has placed on you.  I love to talk about the goodness of the Lord and through this new talk show I’ll be ready to eat the fruit He has for me in 2018 and beyond.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and we will catch you on “Hump Day”!

#SpiritualSundays will be back January 2018..

When Being Obedient Saves Your Life: Spiritual Sundays

 

 

Just a couple months ago I met some people that were amazed that I was an author that has written several books. They couldn’t believe it because I am an introvert and don’t talk much when in groups or big crowds. My response to them was being that I am an introvert I still have to be obedient! If God tells us to do something we are to follow his commands!

(There is a difference): Some people want to know how do you know the difference good=God, bad=the enemy (voice-commands) Me finding my voice meant I was going to be able to help others! (That is good!) Me keeping quiet meant that the people that my books are meant for would continue to be lost! (That is bad!)

How many times have we disobeyed our parents? How many times will we disobey God and his instructions for our life? As children if our parents don’t direct us to the bible; then we don’t know what it says correct? But what about when you have parents, grandparents and other adults that tell you what the bible says and we still go astray?

1.God has provided commandments for us to follow. (Bible)

2.God has laid the foundation on how we are to live. (Bible)

3.God has given us the road-map to how we are to proceed. (Bible)

4.God has sent his only begotten son to save us from our sins; does that mean we continue to sin? We aren’t perfect but we have to strive to do better and act accordingly (Bible)

5.When you don’t obey God and your parents; then who do you make happy?

The enemy, you give him power and you give him access to your life through your disobedience! The word tells you that the enemy only comes to steal, kill and destroy! So, now that you know that is his end game why keep giving him access? Why keep playing his game? How can you obey what and who is designed to hurt and harm you but you won’t obey the very one that came to give you life, abundance, favor, a sound mind, deliverance, shelter, living water, etc?  God has placed your earthly parents over you; why can’t you obey them?

Many of us want the blessings and favor but don’t want to be obedient! We will jump up and down when we get cars, clothes and money but how many of you know that the devil rewards too! Could that be why so many don’t see the reason to come into the light? Because they can still get all their worldly wants and continue to live as they have?

  1. Does the enemy give eternal life? John 3:16
  2. Can he turn water into wine? John 2:1-11
  3. Can he refill your jars when you know they were empty? 2 Kings 4:1-7
  4. Can he feed thousands with just 5 loaves and 2 fish? Matt 14:17

I want to share a story with you that goes back a several years. I had been getting sick and I was constantly in and out the hospital; one day I had to be rushed to the hospital from work. Every time I went the doctors would tell me that they ran all the tests we could and we can’t find anything wrong; it’s probably just stress, go home and just rest.

My job told me to take a couple days off and when I went back to work, people were talking about how I didn’t look like myself! I didn’t feel like myself and I was tired of feeling that way! I knew something was wrong so I decided to pray and cry out to God one night. In my crying and praying it was revealed exactly what was wrong and the testing that was required hadn’t been checked because it’s not a routine test that is normally ran.

Now if the people in the hospital would’ve check my medical history they would’ve seen what the issue was and how to fix it. A few years before that my doctor took me off of medicine that she said I only needed while I was pregnant but that turned out to cause more harm than good.

So, I went back that morning after hearing from God and I allowed them to run the tests again told them what tests they had to run and the attending physician came back and said you’re fine we going to discharge you and I looked him in the face and said I’m sorry but I’m not leaving, I’m not fine, and I want to see the tests that you ran.

I was admitted into the hospital sent upstairs where another physician took over my case and ran the required tests and guess what; when he got the results back he came to my room and said “Ms. McCarthy if you would’ve went home you would’ve been dead in a matter of days!”

Do you see why we must obey God! What if I had listened to that doctor and went home? I wouldn’t be here today! Lord I just thank you!!! Let me tell you again the enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy! Who will you believe? Who will you trust? Who will you follow? Who will you obey?

disobey– ignore, disregard, violate, infringe (disregard others)

disobedient– rebellious, defiant, unruly, wayward, uncooperative, naughty (not obedient)

One thing that I absolutely love about God; is that he doesn’t force himself on you! He offers you a choice unlike the enemy!

Are you ready to obey God today?

 

Ephesians 6:1

“Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right”,

Colossians 3:20

“Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord”,

Proverbs 22:6 

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it”

Don’t Be So: #SpiritualSundays


Don’t Be So! Written by Evangelist Angie Bee

Don’t be so consumed with the integrity of your work, that you miss an opportunity to minister. Have you ever seen those TV commercials where the child is questioning her parent’s love, because they are cleaning the home on a Saturday instead of spending time with her? Are we busy doing “things” instead of building relationships? Are you missing out on opportunities to share your thoughts, wisdom and love?
Don’t be so effected by your damaged feelings that you forget to pray for your enemies.

In the July 9, 2017 issue of #SpiritualSundays, Ms. McCarthy wrote about “Church Hurt” and how the pain can change your perception of religion, people and even yourself. The article continues to talk about how the devil’s job is to steal from you, kill you and those around you and destroy your perception of life and God’s love for you. This is SO TRUE! We can not let the nudge from an enemy change the pathway that God has placed you upon. When the rock is thrown through your window, you do move out of the house? No! you repair the window! When the house catches on fire, you rebuild! Don’t let the actions or the words from another cause you to feel so much pain that you withdraw from your own path and fail to pray for others. Your prayers may initiate the change in their life that they need!
Don’t be so focused on the Spirit of Excellence that you procrastinate on accomplishing the anointing that was placed on your life, in that moment.

I have spoken to several people over the years that had “visions of grandeur” in terms of a new business or a desired lifestyle. “My business will have state of the art equipment where can provide exceptional service to my clients” or they will say “My home will look like this or my car will be that and people will come to Christ because they want to live like me!”
Over the years, these SAME people have not achieved the status that they aspired to achieve. Why do I believe this is so? These people got SO caught up in the image of doing things with a Spirit of Excellence that they never, even START on the process! Can you imagine if Jesus never began his walk in ministry if his goal was to look excellent or BE excellent or appear excellent? Our sins would never be forgiven! Take that first step! Improve as you go along! LEARN as you make those steps! Strive towards excellence and always give glory to Our Lord through the journey!
In 2 Timothy 2:15 we are instructed to “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth”
and the book of Titus 2:7 instructs us to “Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity”.
Model of Good Works – Do the best that you can while you are improving, and stop waiting for the EXCELLENCE to be achieved in order to begin.

Google defines “Integrity” as – the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.

Dignity is defined as “the state or quality of being worthy of honor or respect” and also “a sense of pride in oneself; self-respect”.
We are all at the beginning of something new, each and every day that we awaken. Let us not be SO focused on tomorrow that we don’t allow God to lead us today.
