Happy Friday! The message is simple today are you a friend or foe. A friend will love you at all times. A friend will correct you in love when you are wrong and cheer for you when you are right. I can remember a song which says, “friends, how many of us have them? Friends, one we can depend on…” Good friendships take work just like any other relationships. Friendships have highs and lows just like any other relationships. Friendships go through seasons just like any other relationships. Be the friend who will love, encourage and support her friend. Do not be a friend in their face and be a foe behind their back! Have an amazing weekend and always remember that you are loved! Until Monday….Lady T
Happy Wednesday! How many times have you been consumed with running errands? How many times have you found every excuse why you can’t be still? How many times have you prayed for God to speak and you feel like He hasn’t spoken yet? My sister and my friend, I came to encourage your heart today. Please know that sometimes we have to learn to be still. Learn to be okay with not being busy. Learn to be okay with not running to the next sale. Learn to okay with resting and staying home. You will not win a prize for being everywhere and doing everything. Allow God to speak to you in a still small voice. God wants to speak to you, but you find every reason not to be still. God wants to minister to your heart and mind, but you must be still. God wants to speak to you about the situation that consuming your thoughts. Sis, it’s time to be still. Learn to be still and allow God to speak to your current situation. Have an amazing day on purpose and always remember that you are loved! Until Friday……Lady T
Happy Monday! No one has ever fulfilled destiny by standing still. No one has ever fulfilled destiny by complaining. No one has ever fulfilled destiny by making excuses about what they cannot conquer. Girl, it’s time to get up and get moving. God has placed destiny in you. God has placed vision and dreams inside of you. You have been in a battle with yourself long enough. It’s time to get away from the doubtful and fearful place. It’s time to get up and grind! It’s time to do everything God has called you to do. It’s time to stop making excuses and walk into your destiny. The door is already open, but you are afraid to walk through the door. Girl, get up and fulfill everything God has promised you. You are destined for greatness, but you have to get out of your own way. There is so much greatness within you! Don’t you ever forget that! Have an amazing week on purpose and always remember that you are loved! Until Wednesday….Lady T
Happy Friday! The message is simple this morning. Are you feeling afraid or discouraged? Do you know God is with you? Do you know that God doesn’t want you to be discouraged? Every moment of your life, God has been walking with you through it all. You don’t have to fear because He is with you. You don’t have to be discouraged because He is your God. You don’t have to fight the battle because God is fighting for you. My sister and my friend be encouraged in knowing that God is with you. It will be for your good, but for His glory. Grateful that we serve a God who will not leave us alone and who will fight on our behalf. Have an amazing day on purpose and always remember that you are loved! Until Monday........
Happy Wednesday! When we were awakened to the news of a pandemic, we convinced ourselves that we would be fine. People still planned spring break trips and were determined to make it the most memorable spring break ever. We never fathom how serious this pandemic would be. There would be individuals who would panic and purchase as many essential items as they could. Never thinking that others would need those items as well. We dealt with long lines, masks and gloves being worn. Individuals would allow anxiety and fear to overtake them. The most important lesson out of all of this was God needed us to slow down. This has been my revelation since the beginning of the pandemic.
We had become consumed with other things and had lost focus on our priorities with God. We were so consumed with making it to work out and we never stop to thank God for the day. We were so consumed with getting our kids to the next event and we never stop to thank God for keeping us safe all day. We were so tired at night from running to and from meetings and we forgot to stop pray before we closed our eyes to tell God thank you.
I pray that the quarantine has revealed some things about us that have been hidden. I pray that the quarantine has revealed who we have become and what we think we need to make us feel important. I pray that that the quarantine has revealed who has become God in our lives. I pray that the quarantine has revealed what is most important to us. I pray that we won’t be so consumed with returning back to normal. I pray that our new normal has shown us what matters most. I pray that we will see God in a new way in our lives. I pray that the dreams you have been delaying will be lived out. I pray that marriages have become stronger. I pray that husbands and wives have a greater appreciation for each other and what each person brings to the marriage. I pray that parents have enjoyed loving on your kids even more. I pray that kids have seen the sacrifices that parents make daily. I pray that kids would have a greater appreciation for their education, their teachers and their friends. I pray that we would appreciate family more. With so many deaths (young and old), I pray that we would say, “I Love You” often; laugh a little louder and hug a little longer.
I pray that we would appreciate our places of employment. I pray that members would appreciate the heart of their pastors. Pastors had to become technology gurus and determine ways to still preach and teach the word of God to the members. I pray that even while shopping in stores, we would smile and say hello more often. You never know who you will come in contact with or what battle a person is facing. It doesn’t cost you anything to smile and even say hello. I pray that we would appreciate our healthcare workers. They worked tirelessly around the clock to assist those who were diagnosed and even tested. While taking care of patients, I am grateful that some still made it home to see and take care of their families. While praying that nothing was being transmitted to their families. I pray for every family who lost a loved one. I pray for every person who had to bury a family member and a friend. I pray for every person who wanted to be there to support family and friends during bereavement, but COVID-19 restrictions would not allow that.
I pray that that your new normal would be different. I pray that you would see the world different. I pray that you would value life and those who you love. I pray that you have prayed more, read more, loved more and appreciated the little things more. I pray that when we all return back to some normalcy, we will be better and stronger. I pray that you have maximized time to rest and enjoy life. I pray that you won’t allow circumstances to dictate your outlook on life. I pray that you have gained more wisdom, knowledge and understanding of who God is. I pray that you would be better, wiser and stronger. I pray that you would be the best “YOU” that you can be! Have an amazing day and always remember that you are loved! Until Friday..........Lady T
Happy Monday! I encourage you to take time to pause, reflect and pray. So many times, we are in a rush to do the next thing. We don’t still ourselves long enough to hear the voice of God. Pause! We don’t take time to think about the goodness of God! We have amnesia and forget what He did the last time and even the things He promised us. Reflect! Never be too busy to talk with the Father. He will be there when others are not. He will encourage your heart when everyone else walks away. He will walk and talk with you in the toughest seasons of your life! Pray! I encourage you today to pray about everything. Take time to pause, reflect and pray this week! Have an amazing week and always remember that you are loved m! Until Wednesday…..Lady T
Happy Friday! I came to remind you to let everything that you do be in love. Love is an action word. Love is what the world needs. Allow love to be one of the reasons you show up for those who you love. Allow love to be one of the reasons you minister to others. Allow love to show your care and concern for others. Allow love to be shown in word, action and deed. Love is the key. Love is the foundation. Remember that God is love. Have an amazing weekend and always remember that you are loved! Until Monday………Lady T
Happy Wednesday! I know you can’t see your way in this season. I know the pressure feels like it has been turned up ten times hotter. I know you were supposed to be winning in this season. I know you had it all planned out. I know they told you to walk with your head held high. What happens when your head is high, but your heart is broken and heavy? Instead of complaining, you try to understand the purpose of this season. It’s easy to tell someone else to pause, when their season is not dark and dreary. I want to encourage you to pause and see what God wants you to learn in this season. Realize that every season will not bring joy. Realize that some seasons bring challenges and growing pains. Realize that there is purpose in this season. Realize that you must trust God even more in this season. Realize that God is birthing something out of you in this season. Realize that no matter what you go through, God is with you every step of the way! Have an amazing day and always remember that you are loved! Until Friday.......Lady T
Happy Monday! Fear feels stifling. Fear feels like not being able to breathe. When will you remove the fear? How many times does fear have to keep showing up? When will you believe in you? When will you believe that you are enough? Girl, we all have experienced fear. I know that it has shown up several times in my life. I know that fear has crippled destiny and purpose. I know how fear places doubt and insecurities in your heart and mind! Look in the mirror and tell fear, you have no place in my life. Girl, how will you know if you never try? Breathe and remember that you have this with God on your side! It’s time to replace fear with believing in yourself. Believe that with God all things are possible to those who believe! Have an amazing week and always remember that you are loved! Until Wednesday……Lady T
Happy Friday! I came to encourage your heart and remind you that joy comes in the morning. You have been crying all night long. You have walked the floors all night long. You have walked through the dark places long enough! My sister and my friend, be encouraged and know that joy is coming in the morning. Joy is refreshing! Joy is needed when you have endured the darkest days of your life. Hold you head up high and remember that joy is coming! Don’t walk in purpose today and always remember that you are loved! Until Monday…..Lady T
