Kingdom Gals: Teach Me How to Pray….

There is a difference in how you pray as a young girl versus a Grown Woman!

Praying for a middle school crush versus your godly husband is going to be a little more spirit led than “please let him like me” or “I hope he asks me to the dance”

It may start out like this: “Heavenly Father, the husband you have for me has to know how to cover me physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually! He won’t allow the enemy to infiltrate our camp, covenant, household, finances, children, bedroom, etc.” Do you see the difference? Your prayer life should upgrade as you grow!

We aren’t to be selfish when we pray! We should pray for those around us as well; family, friends, co-workers, employees, employers, government entities, homeless, widows, single parents, father/motherless children, your enemies, racism, equality; etc.

We all should be praying for forgiveness every time we pray; why? Because we are all sinners! “Well then, should we conclude that we Jews are better than others? No, not at all, for we have already shown that all people, whether Jews or Gentiles are under the power of sin”. Romans 3:9 (NLT)

So as you see not anyone of us are perfect; seek forgiveness!

But the problem with this is that many don’t want to face the fact that they are wrong! How do you grow if you you keep hiding behind the mask?

You’re sleeping with married men; that’s adultery, ask/pray for forgiveness! You talk about another woman behind her back; that’s gossip, ask/pray for forgiveness! You’re giving up for body, mind, soul and spirit to a man and there is no ring on your finger, you haven’t walked down the aisle and said I do; that’s sexual immorality, fornication; ask/pray for forgiveness!

Now being that none of us are perfect there is always going to be those that say “well how can you tell someone what to do? Who do you think you are? You are probably doing the same thing; who are you to judge? And my response is I have done the very things I write about! I’m not perfect but I have changed! I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and it was a priority of mine to rid and remove anything and anyone that welcomed or encouraged negative behavior!

I had to ask and pray for forgiveness and also repent! While Jesus comes to save us and show us the right way to live we also have to do our part!

You can’t claim to be a Christian and still be sleeping around! You can’t claim to be a Christian and still speaking hate over other women!

You can’t claim to be a Christian and dropping it like its hot on Saturday nights and sitting up in church on Sunday singing and clapping your hands; it’s out of order!

We are the representatives of Our Heavenly Father! The Alpha and the Omega! The Beginning and the End! You can’t be in/of the world and claim to be filled with the Holy Spirit!

When you seek to help others it’s not always about judgement. I am a firm believer that when you make it out of negative circumstances that you help others escape as well. Daniel 3:24-25 says this “But suddenly, Nebuchadnezzar jumped up in amazement and exclaimed to his advisors ‘Didn’t we tie up three men and throw them into the furnace?’ ‘Yes, your majesty, we surely did,’ they replied. ‘Look!’ Nebuchadnezzar shouted. ‘I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire unharmed! And the fourth looks like a God!” (NLT)

Our Heavenly Father doesn’t leave us to fend your ourselves; so, why would you leave your fellow sister to escape on her own?

To the women that are reading this I pray that you receive the message with love and kindness. I pray that you look within yourself and search for anything that isn’t of God and pray for its removal from your life!

God is love, he doesn’t partake in anger or strife when it comes to deliverance and forgiveness!
Our Heavenly Father wants to bless us beyond measure but we first have to receive Him in our lives and yes that will mean giving up some people, places and things!

We can’t live a sinful life willingly and actually believe that He will bless it. When Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego stepped out of the fiery furnace they weren’t burned, they didn’t even smell of smoke; why?

Because God was with them! They didn’t deny him, they didn’t compromise, they didn’t lower their standards; they believed and had Faith that God was with them and that He would show up and show out!

So, I pray that you accept God into your life and make a complete transformation and that He will bless you beyond measure! Pray for me as I pray for you my dear sister..Amen

#spiritualsundays: Suffering In Silence

Do you want to tell your business to just anyone? No, you would want it to be someone that you trust, admire, and/or respect. People that possess these types of qualities will listen and give you the best advice possible and/or pray with you or for you. Everyone needs someone that they can talk too that will be non-judgmental and help them to get to a positive resolution.

  • If you don't have someone to confide in; talk/pray to the one who is always there: your Heavenly Father

How many have had people turn their backs on them; when you finally decided to confide in them? How did it make you feel? 

  • You can be honest I think we all have been here; just remember nobody is perfect! Not even the person looking down at you!

It can be their word usage as well! I remember a few times that I confided in someone and they constantly said "I told you so!" Made me feel like crap every single time and didn't help me in my time of need; but it did show me that I can't just talk with everyone because many people can't handle what you're going through.

  • Remember also that much of what we have to face is or could be a learning process! Is their a lesson to be learned?

Why is it that we are so quick to turn our backs on someone when they need us the most?  Now, none of us are perfect but may I suggest that we pray for others instead of being tempted to judge them

  • Praying doesn't take long and it could be so simple: Father help them, Father save them, Father forgive them.

Pray that they change their behavior and turn from their negative ways.

1. If someone is having sex and not married; pray!
2. If someone can't stop stealing; pray! 3. If someone has lost their way; pray
4. If someone is dealing with anger issues, pray!
5. If someone loves to gossip more than lending a helping hand, pray!

In one of my books I wrote that people get comfortable being in gangs, cults, bad relationships, etc because they aren't judged! They are fully accepted for who they are! These types of relationships exist because the other party can see that the individual is missing something in their life and they seek to fill that void; even though it creates more harm than good!

These people want to push their one-sided agenda and they will succeed by any means necessary.

Pray……

"

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God". 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (NIV)

Winners Circle: #SpiritualSundays

Coaching For Success – Tarsha L. Campbell
Winner’s Circle

Do you know it’s God’s good pleasure that you win and rise to the top? Joshua 1:8 says, This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

God is of no respect of person and desires for all who employs his divine principles will reap bountiful blessings. I use the word ‘employ’ because this emphasizes the fact that we have to put the principle to work. What we need to understand about a principle is that it remains constant and works when we work it. If we don’t work it, it won’t work, it’s just that simple. I really feel a lot of Christians don’t see the level of success they desire because they are only hearers of the word and not doers.

Also when we do decide to employ the principles of God in our life we don’t do it consistently until we see the desired the results. Many expect a harvest the next day. However, just like it is in the natural if you put a seed in the ground one day you won’t get a harvest the next day. It works the same way when we plant the seeds of spiritual principles in our lives. The harvest will come, but we have to be patient for the complete manifestation of what was planted. The key is being consistent.

Here is a short list of divine principles that will place you in the winner’s circle if you put them to work in your life…and be consistent:

The prayer of faith (Mark 9:23)
Positive confession (Mark 11:23)
Positive thinking (Proverb 23:7)
Giving (Luke 6:38)

I encourage you to read the corresponding scripture for each principle, put the principle to work in your life and then watch God bring the harvest.

Your Next Step Coaching Minute:

How consistent have you been in employing divine principles in your life? Search the scriptures and apply other divine principles for success in your life and set a goal to be consistent for 21 days.

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.

#SpiritualSundays: Church Hurt….Don’t Walk Away..

Spiritual Sundays:Church Hurt: Don’t Walk Away!

 

Church hurt is real and many have experienced it! Me included and I will be honest; when it first happened, I was hurt but more disappointed because like so many I didn’t want to go back! But guess what? I wasn’t going to allow the enemy to win! “No weapon formed against me shall prosper”! (Isaiah 54:17)

 

Have you allowed the actions of another person take you away from your Heavenly Father? Have you allowed them to speak negativity into your life? Have you accepted what they did to you to be from above? Have you left and returned to your old way of doing things? Who does that benefit? Who wins when you turn your back on God?

 

We must remember who our enemy is and what his plans are! Look at John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly”. (KJV) Unfortunately the enemy has an army that loves to carry out his antics and they happen to be in the church; right on the pew sitting next to you! Everyone that steps foot in the four walls that we call “church” isn’t there for the right reasons; but we shouldn’t allow them to push us out! Stop giving your enemy ammunition to destroy your life and keep you from living in abundance and perfect peace!

Whomever told you that walking away from your old life to be a renewed person in Christ was going to easy; misled you! This walk comes with a whole new bucket of trials and tribulations; the enemy doesn’t like to be defeated! So yes, he will be turning it up a notch; but we are built for this! Is this your first battle?

I can tell you from experience; it won’t be your last! But I want you to remember this and get used to saying it: I will not run and hide; for God is on My Side! “And he said, hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, thus saith the Lord unto you, be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s”. (2 Chronicles 20:15)

 

Stand and don’t you sway! We will have to answer to the things we have done and said in this life! Don’t be one that will lead others astray! “For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed”. (Isaiah 9:16)

So, I ask you; who will you serve? What side of the fence will you stand on? “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”. (Joshua 24:15)

The hurt we have experienced can’t be changed, you won’t get an apology, they won’t even admit to their wrong doing; not our problem! At the end of the day we can only control how we respond to it. At first, it will hurt and you just might shed some tears but guess what? You will wake up the next day and that’s when you begin again! Smile; the enemy hates when you do that!

In the Pursuit of Happyness!!!.png

This post is inspired by the 2006 movie “The Pursuit of Happyness” starring Will Smith and his son Jayden. If you saw the movie then you would know why I spelled Happyness that way, Lol. I watched this movie for the 1st time just this week and I have to be honest I was in tears by the end of the movie. I could relate to the movie so much being a Single Mom and feeling like I’m the only one in the race trying to get to the finish line; and finding what will help me get to the place of happiness and stability.

All throughout the movie Will Smith’s character faced so many setbacks but he kept on pushing and moving forward he was determined to get the job; wait better yet the career that would change his life like never before.

When he was faced with eviction not once but twice; the first time he found another route that was much cheaper and smaller but it would do because he know better was ahead! But once again he came home to find all there stuff sitting outside the door; anyone else would have fallen to their knees and giving up but not him, he found another option, a shelter (some may not have went this route; but myself have been faced with that option) whatever you have faced or have to face you will make it through.

Everyday at an internship that didn’t pay him not one dime! He was constantly tried and tested by management to get him to break but he always kept his composure. How many times have you been tried and tested on your job? I know I have been there many times and they were paying me; but never enough to go through what they were dishing out!

At the end of the movie he finally got what he always wanted a career that changed his life and his son’s life for the better; and all he had to do was to keep his head up, no matter what he was faced with! How many times have you wanted to give up when the chips were stacked against you?

Lessons that I learned from watching this movie:

  1. You can defy all the odds placed in front of you.
  2. Once you grab hold of your dreams; never loss sight of them and always remind yourself why you are chasing them.
  3. When you have kids you will do everything in your power to give them the best that life can offer!
  4. Block out all naysayers they have absolutely no idea what your dreams are and how good it’s about to get!
  5. Always be your top supporter and don’t allow anyone to break you or your path to the finish line!

Did you see this movie? If so, what are your takeaways?

Are you planting positive seeds?

what are you planting- Is it good or bad

Just a little Bible to set the tone

“He replied, Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to there, and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20 (NIV)

Are you a Gardener?

Are gardeners the only ones that are planting seeds; and nurturing them through the process, to bloom into their intended purpose? Seeds are used to produce much of what you see and eat; like apples, oranges, tomatoes, grapes, roses, orchids and ferns; just to name a few. When you plant seeds you are expecting something great and amazing to come from something so small. Who would think that all the beauty you see when you walk through town; such as trees, bushes, plants and flowers came from something that you could literally hold in the palm of your hand?

How is your speech?

What if I told you that the words that you speak can also be seeds that are planted in someone’s mind and their heart? Would you believe me? Would it make you think twice before you allowed yourself to say something negative and life-changing to your child, spouse, parent, co-worker or even a total stranger? “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:21 (NKJV)

Children are like sponges they absorb everything that they see and hear and I believe that would still apply to adults; since we were once children. So if you say something awful to a child or an adult that is negative it will not only hurt them, they will carry that around in there mind on a daily basis and it can be life altering.

So ask yourself these questions to see what kind of seeds you are planting:

  1. Are you planting seeds of love or hate?
  2. Are you planting seeds of anger or compassion?
  3. Are you planting seeds of hope or failure?
  4. Are you planting seeds of deliverance or acceptance?
  5. Are you planting seeds of prosperity or poverty?

Your words have power! They can be an inspiration to someone or they can be life shattering; how would you choose to speak to those that you encounter now that you know the difference?
