Thank GOD I don't look like what I've been through. #WalkinginFavor
"Then Saul said to Samuel, ‘I have sinned, for I have transgressed the commandment of the Lord and your words, because I feared the people and obeyed their voice.’" (1 Samuel 15:24). . Saul was instructed to destroy an entire city because of its previous transgression against the Israelites. He destroyed most of it but kept the king + allowed the soldiers to keep the finer plunder for themselves. When questioned by the prophet Samuel, Saul's answer is telling. Saul basically says, "I meant to be obedient to You, God, but fear...." . Fear has a way of arresting our submission to God. It inhibits our obedience and ultimately prevents us from being who God has called us to be. Timothy said it best, "For God has not given us a spirit of FEAR, but of power and of love and of a sound mind" (II Timothy 1:7). . Check your fears today. Seek and heed the voice of God and allow Him to make you the conqueror He's destined you to be. … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever

The love of our Father is so strong and daily I’m thankful to be one of the chosen. Chosen to be so heavily pursued in the depths of my sin to be close to Him. Chosen to share of His glorious love. Chosen to walk in favor and faith.
"Watch as faith and grace align" 👩‍🎓🙌 All glory to the man above for this moment! Thank you God for the opportunity to do this and the strength and wisdom to see it through. These past two years have taught me that when you show up for God, He shows out for you😁🙌 #MBA #imasteredit #masters #whatajourney #Godisgood #blessed #walkinginfavor #whatamonth #blessingsonblessings #Godisinthedetails #goals #notjustaprettyface 😋
Are you the religious person who attacks or who aids? Do you use Scripture as a weapon to beat people who sin in areas in which you don’t? Or do you use your religious knowledge to heal those who are hurting from their own and others’ decisions? . Religious people can be the most ferociously cruel and nasty people…chasing people away from the faith with their judgmental and unkind ways. . Are you the religious person who hurts or who heals? cc: @treyc17 @mrpullen … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever
Mahalia Jackson used to sing a song that started, "Lord don't move the mountain, but give me strength to climb it..." I didn't care too much for the song because Jesus tells us that with faith, we can say to the mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will (Matthew 17:20). So I wondered why Mahalia would pray for strength to climb when her faith could have it removed. The answer became evident: Mahalia prayed for strength to climb because she wanted to be developed and to go higher in God. . Problems exist to develop you and bring you closer to God. Don't pray for a care-free life but pray for direction, strength, and peace to handle the cares. … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever
While on the run from Saul, fleeing for his very life simply because Saul was jealous of his popularity, David pens the 34th Psalm. In the first 3 verses, he makes a commitment to praising God at all times and invites others to magnify the Lord with him. In verse 4, he explains why he's so committed to praising God: "I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears." . David had so many challenges to face but realized that, more than his outward struggles, he really needed God to deliver him from his fears…for it wasn't the challenges that were consuming him but his fears of the challenges. . I know you have a lot of challenges ahead—but ask God to help you conquer your fears and your challenges won't stand a chance. … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever

A well known and loved disciple died in Joppa and so Peter was summoned. When he got there, though, the crowd was consumed with grief. In response, "Peter sent them all out of the room; then he got down on his knees and prayed" (Acts 9:40a). Peter understood that it's difficult to see what can be while being so consumed with what was. . I have bad news for someone: It happened AND it's over. But there's also good news: God has new life waiting for you…and it all starts with prayer. … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever

Helloooo October!! Wow is it really October already? How are y’all doing, I had such a blessed busy weekend I am so grateful to God, Family went apple 🍏 about 15 of us, such a great day☺️ scored these 2 pieces on Craigslist for a co-worker she want me to refurbish them for her👍🏽 let’s see how this goes 💰 .............................................. #walkinginfavor #finditstyleit #greatweekend #applepicking #applepickingseason #refurbishedfurniture #newproject #lovedoinghis #refurbishing #mysidehustle #sidehustlerlife #greatpiecesgreatprices #greatfind #craiglist #anothergreatfind
He came to a broom bush, sat down under it and prayed that he might die. “I have had enough, Lord,” he said. “Take my life; I am no better than my ancestors” (1 Kings 19:4b). . Elijah has done great things. In the midst of a wicked administration, he was still able to get some wins for the kingdom. He had the heavens shut up and then reopened. He outran royal chariots while in his 80s. He had a water soaked altar consumed with fire. He's had some wins. Yet, things have taken a terrible turn, his future is now in jeopardy, and he now contemplates throwing in the towel. . We know how it feels to be in such a situation. We've had many wins in the women's rights. We've had many wins for the rights of minorities. Yet, things have taken a terrible turn for a couple years now and, with the pending vote in the Senate, our future is even more in jeopardy. I understand how we might contemplate throwing in the towel. . The angel's response to Elijah is what I sense God is telling us: “Get up and eat, for the journey is too much for you.” I know things look dim. It's okay to feel that way. But know that God is yet calling us to get back up, eat to strengthen ourselves, and keep moving forward. … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever
Hey y’all!! Happy Friday Thank you all for the Anniversary comments, likes and blessings InstaFriends Rock!!

If God brings IT to you, then he will bring you through IT. The vision that God has for your life had already been manifested into the atmosphere.

To be honest, our generation is too obsessed with cutting folks off. It’s the post that gets the most likes and favorites. It’s the sermon that gets the most claps and “Amens.” It, for too many of us, our first response. It’s become the theme of the day. . Yet, it falls short of our biblically command to be connected. Throughout Scripture we have been called to be connected…to be interdependent. . Bishop Jakes helps remind us how we lose when we’re not connected. There are blessings that God seeks to give us but are put at risk by our inclination to cut folks off. Now I’m not saying to keep everyoneeeeee in your life. But we ought to be more discerning of when we are to stay in relationship and when we are to move on. cc: @treyc17 @mrpullen ) … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever

PSA: I’m out here living my BEST life, I go out, I kick it, I sometimes say what I’m not supposed to, and sometimes do what I’m not supposed to. However, nothing and no one will ever take away the one fact that I’m an unapologetic child of the King. It is amazing what giving God control of your life can do, what walking in his promise can do! He makes the impossible possible! He is my all, literally my everything I could go on and on. Sometimes, you have to take your private worship public, because everyone that knows me needs to know that my love for God, my love for Jesus is beyond measure and I’ll never be ashamed of THAT! I’m just a girl who one day decided to quit worrying about things I can’t control and fully start believing God for every one of his promises! Have a great Wednesday everybody, finish the rest of the week strong!❤️#iwillnotbesilent #iwillalwaysworshipyou #aslongasiambreathing #godchaser #jesusworshiper #chosengeneration #walkinginfavor #walkinginvictory

…[Rhoda] was so overjoyed she ran back...and exclaimed, “Peter is at the door!” “You’re out of your mind,” they told her (Acts 12:14,15). . The church had been praying that Peter was released from jail but they didn't believe when he was. Plus, the news came in an unusual form. Sometimes we find ourselves in that position. We pray but past disappointments have watered seeds of doubt in our lives. . If you have enough sense to pray, you also should have enough faith to believe. .

What’s your process? I know you want to build your own business. I know you want to lead in your industry. I know you want a position in a C-Suite. I know you want to create that organization to save our community. I know you want to pastor that church. I know you want to achieve that dream. . But what’s your process…? …both to achieve your dream and sustain your dream. Our passions are great; they’re a part of what makes us ourselves. Yet, if we don’t connect our passion with a plan and a process …if we don’t connect our gift with a game plan …if we don’t connect our smarts with a strategy, we risk being consumed by the very blessing God gave us. .

In Exodus 18, we see Jethro admonish Moses—not because Moses was doing anything wrong (he was on the right mission) but because he was going about it the wrong way. Moses was overloading himself and putting his potential to have impact at risk. . I believe this message should speak to many of us. For, while many of us are doing great things, the quantity of what we’re involved in could potentially affect the quality of our involvement. We’re involved in our sororities and fraternities. We’re involved in our churches. We’re involved in our local sports leagues. We’re involved in our vocations and career fields. We’re involved in our civic/community organizations. We’re trying to be present in the lives of our families. We’re trying to be present in our relationships. And we’re trying to obtain another certification. We are involved…and in all good things. . But if we’re not careful. We’ll kill our mission by not attending to (and adjusting) our methods. It’s important that we listen to the Jethros in our lives: “What you are doing is not good. You and these people who come to you will only wear yourselves out” (17b-18). cc: @treyc17 @mrpullen … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever

“The Lord said to Samuel, ‘How long will you mourn for Saul, since I have rejected him as king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil and be on your way…’” (1 Samuel 16:1). . In Samuel 15, God rejects Saul as king of Israel through the prophet Samuel. After Samuel shares the word of the Lord, he never sees Saul again. And Samuel is hurting. I mean, he was the one who originally anointed Saul. He was one of Saul’s confidants. And while they’d had a few problems in their relationship, no one wants to see anything you’ve invested so much into go down the drain. Yet, God has rejected Saul and now so must Samuel. . You’ve been there. You thought that relationship would never end. You just knew they would be your husband/wife/partner. You just knew you’d get that next promotion. You just knew you would be selected for membership. You just knew this was going to be the next degree program for you. You thought God’s hand was on that dream—and maybe at one point it was—but now you know it isn’t. And you’re hurting. . The Word of the Lord is the same for us. How long will you mourn? God didn’t say that Samuel couldn’t but his question implies that he couldn’t mourn forever. At some point, you have to get up, fill your horn with oil (i.e. prepare for what’s next) and be on your way. . It’s time to move on! … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever
Too often we judge people on where they are now, without knowing what they went through behind closed doors. Not everyone seeks pity parties from others. Some people actually deal with their struggles behind the scenes, while maintaining a positive outer appearance. Have you ever heard the saying “thank God I don’t look like what I’ve been through?” Just because you see their public victories, and not their hurt DOESN’T mean the hurt didn’t exist. It doesn’t mean they cheated their way through. It just means they made their route look good, to you, while dealing with their pain behind the scenes. Stop judging people based off what you don't see.
"As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 'Come, follow me,' Jesus said, 'and I will send you out to fish for people.' At once they left their nets and followed him" (Matthew 4:18-20). . Every change initiative—in organizations or our individual lives—requires a trade-off. In order to become who you want to be, you're going to have to let go of some traits and tendencies of who you were. In order to become a husband, you have to leave the single, bachelor life behind. In order to get to a healthy weight, you have to leave some foods and down-time (in favor of exercise) behind. In order to become leader (versus simply someone with a title), you're going to have to leave some immaturity behind. . Truly, in order for you to become the King & Queen God created you to be, you have to identify that which undignified and dishonorable and leave those parts of you behind. So the question becomes: what are you willing to give up to become your best you? … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever
@christinecaine teaches us the difference between being gifted and being anointed. What good is having all of the talent in the world… Having all of the fortune and fame you can imagine…if you don’t have the ability to positively affect lives? It’s the anointing that makes the difference. A lot of people are public successes while private failures because their gift made them externally successful but they lacked the anointing to help them be internally whole. . Are you pursuing a gift or the anointing? … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever cc: @treyc17 @mrpullen
Notice what qualifies as "faithful" use of one's talents in the parable of the talents (Matt 25)—servants using their talents to produce more. By contrast, the servant who was considered wicked in the Master's sight was the one who used religious dogma as an excuse to be lazy with his talents. . God has gifted each of us with talents. If we don't use them to actively produce, we will eventually lose everything. As we mature, it's important that we realize (1) there is a difference between being active and being productive and (2) THIS is our time to p r o d u c e . … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever

When David set out to rescue the women + children who'd been stolen by the Amalekites, he ran into an ill Egyptian servant they left behind. David asked the servant if he could lead David + his men down to the raiding party. 1 Samuel 30:16 begins, "He [the servant] led David down." And the Amalekites were destroyed. . The Amalekites discarded the servant because he was no longer of any use to them. Today, we often do the same thing—discard folks when we're done with them. The story teaches us that there's danger in believing (1) that it's always about what others can do for us and (2) that EVERYONE is disposable. . Be mature today. Choose kindness over selfishness. Choose charity + compassion over greed. Choose mercy over justice. Choose love over hate. Such choices will render a reward down the road…in this life and the life to come. … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever
Just another day in Paradise. Today I'm reminded that God calls us to difficult things but somehow the challenge and the adventure is a blessing in itself.

King Belshazzar, a descendant of Nebuchadnezzar, hosts a banquet using goblets stolen from the temple and praising the gods of gold and silver. A hand appears, writes on the wall, and frightens Belshazzar who calls in the wise men to interpret. They can't help and everyone becomes terrified. The queen, hearing the voices of the king and his nobles, comes into the banquet hall and shares news to calm their fears: "…'May the king live forever!' she said. 'Don’t be alarmed! Don’t look so pale!' There is a man…” (Daniel‬ ‭5:10‬). . The Queen tells them about Daniel who had a history of helping solve these types of puzzles. Daniel appears, shares the ill-fated meaning of the words and, with surprising calmness, Belshazzar makes Daniel third ruler in the kingdom. Why is Belshazzar so calm despite Daniel's negative interpretation? . Maybe it's because…sometimes there's comfort in just knowing. In an age where everything moves so quickly, it's easy to lose track of your status…your status in class…your status on the job…your status in a relationship…your status regarding your health. And even your status in your faith-walk. The text reminds us though there's peace in knowing. . So the question is: do you know your status? … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever
Good morning ... rise n shine its Hustle time!! #WeDeZign #walkinginfavor
David is anointed king in 1 Samuel 16. But, despite being anointed, he can't readily assume the role…and so life for him continues as it was. His father Jesse sends him on an errand: "Take now for your brothers an ephah of this dried grain and these ten loaves, and run to your brothers at the camp" (17:17). . I can imagine the angst David must have felt from such a request because he knew there was greater out there for him. BUT, he obeyed his father. We know the rest of the story. David goes to the battlefield, finds Goliath taunting the Israelites, steps up, fights + kills the giant, and instantly becomes famous. The event launched David onto the road to kingship. But obedience to his father's instruction to complete a menial task triggered the event. . Like David, some of us have difficulty being obedient to the Father's directives because the tasks seem too plain for our purpose. But the lesson of the story is simply that great things happen when we listen to the Father—obedience to God awakens the King or Queen in us. … … … … … #SeedsfortheSpirit #soul #believe #faith #inspirationalquotes #livingonpurpose #lovinglife #walkinginfavor #favor #mercy #grace #blessings #motivation #empowerment #purpose #achievements #dedication #determination #winning #selflove #instastory #WakandaForever
