This morning, I S👏🏿T👏🏿R👏🏿U👏🏿G👏🏿G👏🏿L👏🏿E👏🏿D through the abs portion of @msjeanettejenkins ’ Cardio Kickingboxing DVD. Ab workouts are not my strength at all! Some or many of the ab workouts in this program, I could just barely perform, and I mean barely, if at all! 😩!!! Yet, I refused to quit!!! 💪🏿!!! I pushed myself to “do what I could.” 😌 I figured that if I didn’t give up, one day I would be able to actually do these workouts fully and properly. 🤷🏿‍♀️ LOL!!!! . Quitting is SOOOOOOO tempting, especially when you are at your “lowest level”, meaning you are new to something and so you have a lot to learn and you have to learn it all on the job, on the spot and publicly (with your haters watching 🤦🏿‍♀️😔), essentially you are learning “by baptism by fire”; you are experiencing great resistance and opposition; and, when you are exhausted and tired from battling for so long, and, thus, you are essentially over it and feel and believe that you don’t have the energy to keep battling on. . In these moments, remind yourself that “YOU CAN DO IT!” . It is in these hard, challenging and overwhelming moments that our destinies, our dreams, and God’s hopes and dreams for us and humanity are being shaped and come within our reach, or we move closer to them...manifestation is taking place. More than that, WE are being shaped and manifested, our higher, greater and better selves. . My dear #FlyBelles and #FlyBeaux , do not give up! When you wake up, throughout the day, during struggle, and when you feel the temptation to quit, proclaim to yourself that “YOU CAN DO IT!” Your future self, your future, your destiny, God, the Universe and all of humanity are counting on you to do it!!!! And #YesYouCan !!!! . #MyFaithCreates affirmation: #IAmFaith to create my destiny and to create my God self! Because #FlyBellesAchieve !!! #KreateYourDestiny #KreateGodsDreams #KreateYourGodSelf #KerseWords #IAmFaithFreedomFly #FaithFreedomFly #Spiritual #Inspirational #Motivation #Empowerment #Hope #Faith

👏🏿🙌🏿👋🏿🙋🏿 to this!!!! . No matter what happens in life, trust your journey and trust God. Believe that God knows best for you and has your best interest at heart. Always - and, especially in moments of despair and disappointment - surrender your hopes and dreams to God. And, have patience in the timing of “your season.” #KreateYourDestiny #KreateGodsDreams #KreateYourGodSelf #MyFaithCreates #KerseWords . Repost By @jovianzayne : So often we can convince ourselves that we're being left out of the group, the opportunity, or the _____ (I'll let you fill in your blank). But in reality we're being pulled out for something that is simply BETTER for us at the time. Something that's uniquely positioned just for us. What if you're not being left out, but actually set apart for a new chapter? A chapter that needs more of your attention, discipline and faith? Don't get so caught up holding on to what is familiar that you miss the new thing that is working in and through you. It's okay to be set apart for His glory. And it's more than okay to focus on your purpose. You're not being left out, you're being pulled out. And you my friend, got this. #OnPurpose #JoviJems #mondaymotivation
#FlyBellesAchieve . Repost @kersewords -There have been so many times that I have wanted to give up in my journey. Recently, I thought about who I was when I first moved to NYC 8.5 years ago. I was shy, timid & fearful & really had no idea who God had called me to be & what God had called me to do. I found the City harsh, dirty & overwhelming. I was COMPLETELY overwhelmed & out of my comfort zone! And, there were times - SO MANY times - that I wanted to give up & quit my life here. In those moments when I wanted to give up, I was completely over the struggle of it all & the path forward - to where I wanted to be & what I wanted to do - seemed impossible to get to or nonexistent. Oh, the tears that I have shed & the stress & strained that I have carried in my journey here have been & still are tremendous! But #ToGodBeTheGlory , I did not give up & continue to refuse to give up. God, the Universe & my destiny use my crazy faith to keep me going, trusting & believing in myself, God and my future...!!! Today - though the struggle is VERY much still real - I am SO glad that I didn’t give up! I am SO much different than I was when I moved here 8.5 years ago! I am INCREDIBLY stronger; wiser; better; & more confident; have formidable faith; have discovered and been awakened to know who I am & my purpose, destiny & callings & am still learning who I truly am, a learning that can only come by leaning into my fears, passions, purpose&callings; & there has been such a great physical transformation coupled w/my mental & spiritual ones; & my faith&trust in God & self has grown exponentially! . I encourage you to not give up! Your destiny, God, the Universe&your future self will thank you for not doing so! . Also, I can’t believe who I have become/ing & what I have done/ing!

No matter what you are facing, have faith! #MustardSeedFaithMatters can make THE difference in your life! #IAmFaith #IAmFaithFreedomFly Repost @kersewords - I never understood #MustardSeedFaith until now, as I struggle to continue to believe a great dream & #hope that I have for my life that has yet to come to pass despite my greatest #faith . As I now attempt AGAIN to exercise the needed faith to manifest this hope & dream for my life, I find that my mind is constantly bombarded w/thoughts that this won’t work either; that this is just impossible for my life; & that I shouldn’t believe, give & try so much, so as to not get my hopes up, so that I can prevent myself from experiencing future disappointment & heartbreak. Yet, w/all of those doubts, I continue to believe, have faith, & force myself to act even w/my greatest fears & doubts being ever present. In doing so, I am exercising mustard seed faith. B/c small faith is all that l I have strength for, as my past disappointments have made me tremendously weary. For doubt & disappointment are tiring. Still, my small faith acts are making a difference! My spirit senses that it is. & the Universe is giving me signs that THIS is possible for me! I believe that my steadfast, weary & small faith is making the difference for me. Some things that God has for you will require your steadfast, weary faith to manifest. #MyFaithCreates my impossible! #KreateYourImpossible #KreateYourDestiny #KreateGodsDreams #KerseWords #IAmFaith #FaithFreedomFly . #Matthew17 :14-20 - A man came begging, “Have mercy on my son. He goes out of his mind & suffers terribly, falling into seizures. I brought him to your disciples, but they could do nothing for him.” Jesus said, “What a generation! No sense of God! No focus to your lives!” He ordered the afflicting demon out—& it was out. & the boy was well. The disciples asked, "Why couldn’t we throw it out?” “B/c you’re not yet taking God seriously. The truth is that if you had a mere kernel of faith, a poppy seed, say, you would tell this mountain, ‘Move!’ & it would move. There is nothing you wouldn’t be able to tackle.” #Motivation #Inspiration

In #Joshua10 :12-14 it reads: “The day God gave the Amorites up to Israel, Joshua spoke to God, with all Israel listening: “Stop, Sun, over Gibeon; Halt, Moon, over Aijalon Valley.” And Sun stopped, Moon stood stock still Until he defeated his enemies. (You can find this written in the Book of Jashar.) The sun stopped in its tracks in mid sky; just sat there all day. There’s never been a day like that before or since—God took orders from a human voice! Truly, God fought for Israel. .

I am a person of #faith that fights for my and others’ #freedom and who strives to be #fly . Thus, I am Faith. I am Freedom. And I am Fly! 😆 . In 2018, I am launching the #FaithFreedomFly movement. #IAmFaithFreedomFly is a movement that pushes us to live our most courageous, free and fly lives! 😆 . It is a faith movement, because it is our faith in God and self that will give us the courage to go for as well as the strength and tenacity to fight for our and God’s biggest, greatest hopes and dreams for ourselves and humanity. #KreateYourDestiny #KreateGodsDreams #KreateYourGodSelf #KerseWords . It is a freedom movement, because we are all called to love our neighbors and to transform this world for the better. Because we are all connected, we should join together with our neighbors - those near and far - and fight to create a more equal, free, compassionate, loving and just world for all. For we rise and fall together. #CreateAnotherAmerica #CreateAnotherWorld #PoliticsForWeThePeople . And it is a fly movement, because we are God’s masterpiece. Made in the image of God, we are beautiful, gorgeous, strong, capable, and able beings who are deserving and worthy of looking, feeling, and doing our best! #KnowWhoYouAre , which is a Fly Belle who achieves!!! #FlyBellesAchieve #FlyBelles . This photo slideshow set to Kanye West’s #Champion contains pictures of me from 2018.

It ain’t easy!!! It’s extremely hard, burdensome and struggle-filled!!! However, my faith, myself and my God will not let me settle for any other life other than my best, greatest life or any other version of myself other than my greatest, highest me!!! .

To #KreateYourDestiny , #KreateGodsDreams for you and humanity, and to #KreateYourGodSelf , #KnowWhoYouAre and believe in your power to transform and save the world. Your faith in self along with your trust in God as well as your faith in you and God’s collective power should cause you to #LeanInto the impossible; the unknown; the problematic; the chaotic; and the darkness. Doing so because you know that it is God’s dream for you to save humanity. . Be like @ava , and let nothing stop you from living out your dreams and reaching your destiny. For the world is in desperate need of you doing so. For, you transform and save the world when you live out your purpose and calling. . After watching @wrinkleintime , the song “This light of mine, I’m going to let it shine” has new meaning for me. Darkness and hate wins when we lack the courage and faith to #LeanInto it with ourselves. Our light, or love, is needed most in dark places. . #MyFaithCreates my warrior ability to #KreateGodsDreams for me and humanity and to #CreateAnotherAmerica and #CreateAnotherWorld . #KerseWords #IAmFaithFreedomFly #Inspiration #Empowerment #Motivation . #ThankYouAva .

Our current thoughts and actions play a critical role in assisting God and the Universe in creating our futures and destinies. If you have been waiting on God to do some things in your life, the time for them has come! Do not let pass disappointments and heartbreaks cause you to not have the needed faith NOW to bring them to pass in your “NOW season”. Have a #ThisTimeFaith , as in this time it shall work and/or be! .

I believe that the Universe, heaven & all of creation pauses & rejoices every time that we summon the #courage & #faith to dare to dream & pursue our wildest, most impossible dream! For, the Universe & all of creation are deeply invested in & impacted by how we choose to live our lives. The dreams that God places in our hearts are solutions to some of the world’s toughest & greatest problems as well as those most in need of solving.

Meanwhile,the joyful anticipation deepens. . 22-25 All around us we observe a pregnant creation.The difficult times of pain throughout the world are simply birth pangs.But it’s not only around us; it’s w/i us. ... We’re also feeling the birth pangs.These bodies of ours are yearning for full deliverance. ... . 26-28 The moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. ... He knows us far better than we know ourselves,knows our pregnant condition,&keeps us present before God.That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good. . 29-30 God knew what he was doing from the very beginning.He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love him along the same lines as the life of his Son. ... & then, after getting them established,he stayed w/them to the end,gloriously completing what he had begun. . 31-39 W/God on our side like this, how can we lose? . #Isaiah41 :10 NRSV - do no fear, for I am w/you, do not be afraid, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you w/my victorious right hand. . #Jeremiah32 :17 - It is You God who made the heavens & the earth by your great power.

For everyone who asks receives, & everyone who searches finds, & for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. Is there anyone among you who, if your child asks for bread, will give a stone? Or if the child asks for a fish, will give a snake? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him! . Matthew7:7-11 Message - “Don’t bargain w/God. Be direct. Ask for what you need. This isn’t a cat-and-mouse, hide-and-seek game we’re in. If your child asks for bread, do you trick him w/sawdust? If he asks for fish, do you scare him w/a live snake on his plate? You wouldn’t think of such a thing. You’re decent to your own children. So don’t you think the God who conceived you in love will be even better? . Matthew 22:18-22 - Early the next morning Jesus was returning to the city. He was hungry. Seeing a lone fig tree alongside the road, he approached it anticipating a breakfast of figs. When he got to the tree, there was nothing but fig leaves. He said, “No more figs from this tree—ever!” The fig tree withered on the spot, a dry stick. The disciples saw it happen. They said, “Did we really see this? A leafy tree one minute, a dry stick the next?” But Jesus was matter-of-fact: “Yes—and if you embrace this kingdom life and don’t doubt God, you’ll not only do minor feats like I did to the fig tree, but also triumph over huge obstacles. This mountain, for instance, you’ll tell, ‘Go jump in the lake,’ and it will jump. Absolutely everything, ranging from small to large, as you make it a part of your believing prayer, gets included as you lay hold of God.”
In the spirit of #ShirleyChisholm , I have the #faith to go after my “God dreams!” The dreams that God places in our hearts & spirits takes faith, drive & discipline to bring to pass! For God knows what we will be up against as we seek to manifest our “God dreams.” God knows that tremendous opposition shall come our way along w/great disappointments, failures, obstacles, challenges & heartbreak. For it is the things that we want most that will test our faith most! But it is our faith that we must lean on in these trying, testing times. For it is your faith that will literally pick you up & stand you on your feet when you do not feel you have the strength to go on or do not even want to go on. It is your faith that will cause you to declare to yourself & the world who you are at a time when what you are saying sounds absolutely preposterous or seemingly impossible for you. It is your faith that will release your soul mate to you in God’s perfect timing for your life, after you have suffered much heartbreak. It is your faith that will push & propel you to your destiny....driving you towards it as you encounter all types of hazardous & frustrating road & weather conditions, while simultaneously demanding your discipline & faith to bring what God has for to pass!

Within me & within us all is a longing to live our best, greatest lives & become our highest selves. We cannot do so by playing it safe or not having the courage, guts & faith to go after what we want. My transformative moments have come through my faith acts, when I have gone when I didn’t know how I could financially do so &/or when fear & doubt gave me a million “logical” reasons & excuses for why I should not be, do or go. . What made me be, do, & go for it anyways has been my #faith . A faith that says I deserve better & more; that I was created for this; this is what God has for me; & this is what my heart longs for & deserves. . To #KreateYourDestiny , #KreateGodsDreams for you & humanity, and to #KreateYourGodSelf , w/bold, trusting faith in you & God, go for it & manifest your God-created destiny! #MyFaithCreates #KerseWords #Inspiration #Motivation #Empowerment #Spiritual . #Matthew14 :13-21 - When Jesus got the news, he slipped away by boat to an out-of-the-way place by himself. But unsuccessfully—someone saw him & the word got around. Soon a lot of people from the nearby villages walked around the lake to where he was. When he saw them coming, he was overcome with pity & healed their sick. Toward evening the disciples approached him. “We’re out in the country & it’s getting late. Dismiss the people so they can go to the villages & get some supper.” But Jesus said, “There is no need to dismiss them. You give them supper.” “All we have are 5 loaves of bread & 2 fish,” they said. Jesus said, “Bring them here.” Then he had the people sit on the grass. He took the 5 loaves & 2 fish, lifted his face to heaven in prayer, blessed, broke, & gave the bread to the disciples. The disciples then gave the food to the congregation. They all ate their fill. They gathered 12 baskets of leftovers. About 5,000 were fed. . “I'd like them to say that Shirley Chisholm had guts.

As they approached, a man came out of the crowd and fell to his knees begging, “Master, have mercy on my son. He goes out of his mind and suffers terribly, falling into seizures. Frequently he is pitched into the fire, other times into the river. I brought him to your disciples, but they could do nothing for him.” . 17-18 Jesus said, “What a generation! No sense of God! No focus to your lives! How many times do I have to go over these things? How much longer do I have to put up with this? Bring the boy here.” He ordered the afflicting demon out—and it was out, gone. From that moment on the boy was well. 19 When the disciples had Jesus off to themselves, they asked, “Why couldn’t we throw it out?” 20 “Because you’re not yet taking God seriously,” said Jesus. “The simple truth is that if you had a mere kernel of faith, a poppy seed, say, you would tell this mountain, ‘Move!’ and it would move. There is nothing you wouldn’t be able to tackle.” . “Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life, because you become what you believe.” ~#OprahWinfrey . “Every time you state what you want or believe, you're the first to hear it. It's a message to both you and others about what you think is possible. Don't put a ceiling on yourself.” ~#OprahWinfrey
Pain, failure, & heartbreak are signs that you are fully living! Don’t allow them to force you to retreat...to retreat from a successful, happy, & love-filled destiny. Instead, allow your faith to be stronger than any pain, failure, heartbreak & opposition you experience. In God’s time & way & w/God’s help, the life that your have been longing for & that God created you for shall come to pass. But to get there, to your promised land, you must endure great pain, struggle, opposition & failure. But through it all, God is with you...strengthening you...preparing you...& creating you into your greatest, highest self for your best, happiest life! Your pain has purpose to #KreateYourDestiny , #KreateYourDestiny for you & humanity, & to #KreateYourGodSelf ! #MyFaithCreates #KerseWords #Inspiration #Faith #Motivation #Empowerment . #Luke5 :1-10 - Once when he was standing on the shore of Lake Gennesaret, the crowd was pushing in on him to better hear the Word of God. He noticed 2 boats tied up. The fishermen had just left them & were out scrubbing their nets. He climbed into the boat that was Simon’s & asked him to put out a little from the shore. Sitting there, using the boat for a pulpit, he taught the crowd. . 4 When he finished teaching, he said to Simon, “Push out into deep water & let your nets out for a catch.” . 5-7 Simon said, “Master, we’ve been fishing hard all night & haven’t caught even a minnow. But if you say so, I’ll let out the nets.” It was no sooner said than done—a huge haul of fish, straining the nets past capacity. They waved to their partners in the other boat to come help them. They filled both boats, nearly swamping them w/the catch. . 8-10 Simon Peter, when he saw it, fell to his knees before Jesus. “Master, leave. I’m a sinner & can’t handle this holiness. Leave me to myself.” When they pulled in that catch of fish, awe overwhelmed Simon & everyone w/him. It was the same w/James & John, Zebedee’s sons, coworkers w/Simon. . 10-11 Jesus said to Simon, “There is nothing to fear. From now on you’ll be fishing for men & women.” They pulled their boats up on the beach, left them, nets and all, and followed him. . #TSEliot #MuhammadAli

Tough, challenging times greatly impact our minds and, therefore, our spirits, actions, beliefs and faith! Therefore, some of the greatest battles that we will face will occur in our minds. And the weapons that we must use in these mind battles must be our thoughts, beliefs, actions and words. To secure victory, we must have and speak #faith , #hope and #love over ourselves, our present circumstances and our future. And our #FaithHopeLove words must be accompanied with aligning action! To create you and God’s greatest hopes and dreams for your life, have great, steadfast #FaithHopeandLove ! #FaithCreates #HopeManifests #LoveTransforms #KreateYourDestiny #KreateGodsDreams #MyFaithCreates #KerseWords #Inspiration #Motivation #Empowerment #YourLatterWillBeGreater #TheBestIsYetToCome . 1 Corinthians 13: 7, 8 and 13 - (Love) Trusts God always, Always looks for the best, Never looks back, But keeps going to the end.

I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. . #Proverbs 15:4 - A gentle tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit. . #Proverbs31 :26 - When she speaks she has something worthwhile to say, and she always says it kindly. . #Proverbs18 :21 - Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose. . #2Timothy1 :7 - for God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline. . #1Peter1 :13 - Therefore prepare your minds for action; discipline yourselves; set all your hope on the grace that Jesus Christ will bring you
#Facts !!!! The journey to your greatest, highest self and best, happiest life and destiny is through your hell. The key is to not take root or residence in your hell, but to fight your way out of it to your promised land with a crazy, steadfast #faith . God’s greatest desires for you, your heart’s greatest longings and your soul’s greatest cravings are all possible. To manifest them, keep your faith, keep believing and acting in a way that will manifest them. You do all you can, and God will do the rest. God will do the unimaginable in your life in a way and at a time when you least expect it. This is my testimony! 🙋🏿‍♀️ And you will wonder how God did it. It is because God loves you and wants you to be happy, loved, successful, at peace, etc. God sees you and is concerned about you, even when you don’t think God is. And God is ever working on your behalf. In God’s time, yes you and God can #KreateYourDestiny , #KreateGodsDreams for you and humanity, and #KreateYourGodSelf ! #MyFaithCreates #KerseWords .

How #FlyBellesAchieve : A testimony! Repost @kersewords - These days, I am astounded by the woman that I see staring back at me in the mirror. What is not lost on me is that my transformation has come through great risks, pain, struggle, & challenges as well as a great faith in who I believe myself to be & in who God created me to be. It is that faith that causes me to take risks & to believe that God & I are stronger than any challenges that come my way on my journey to my destiny. It is this faith that helps me to get through the pain & to believe that God has better for me, or that my #BestIsYetToCome .

They were fishing, throwing their nets into the lake. It was their regular work. Jesus said:“Come w/me. I’ll make a new kind of fisherman out of you. I’ll show you how to catch men & women instead of perch & bass.” They didn’t ask questions, but simply dropped their nets & followed. A short distance down the beach they came upon another pair of brothers, James & John. These two were sitting in a boat w/their father, Zebedee, mending their fishnets. Jesus made the same offer to them, & they were just as quick to follow, abandoning boat & father. . #Matthew19 :25-30 - The disciples said:“Then who has any chance at all?” Jesus looked at them & said, “No chance at all if you think you can pull it off yourself. Every chance in the world if you trust God to do it.” Then Peter chimed in, “We left everything & followed you. What do we get out of it?” Jesus replied, “Yes, you have followed me. In the re-creation of the world, when the Son of Man will rule gloriously, you who have followed me will also rule, starting w/the 12 tribes of Israel. & not only you, but anyone who sacrifices home, family, fields—whatever—b/c of me will get it all back a 100 times over, not to mention the considerable bonus of eternal life.

Your #destiny is not designed to break you but to further create you; to fulfill a great need that creation has; & to grow your faith & trust in God, the Universe & yourself. However, b/c of the great pain that you will experience from the unimaginable challenges that will come your way on the journey to your destiny, it will sometimes feel as though are on the wrong path. Do not allow challenges & enemies to cause you to doubt who you are & what you were created to do. Resist the temptation to “step back” & quit! Instead, remember who you are as well as who called you & is w/you (God), & press forward against the resistance, enabling it to transform you into your greatest, highest, best & strongest self & to build your #faith in you & God’s ability to accomplish the impossible. #KreateYourDestiny #KreateGodsDreams #KreateYourGodSelf #MyFaithCreates #KerseWords #Empowerment #1Kings19 :1-10 (NRSV) 19 1-2 Ahab reported to Jezebel everything that Elijah had done, including the massacre of the prophets. Jezebel immediately sent a messenger to Elijah w/her threat: “The gods will get you for this & I’ll get even w/you! By this time tomorrow you’ll be as dead as any one of those prophets.” 3-5 When Elijah saw how things were, he ran for dear life to Beersheba. He left & then went on into the desert another day’s journey. He came to a lone broom bush & collapsed in its shade, wanting in the worst way to be done w/it all—to just die: “Enough of this, God! Take my life—I’m ready to join my ancestors in the grave!” Exhausted, he fell asleep under the lone broom bush. Suddenly an angel shook him awake and said, “Get up & eat!” 6 He looked around &, to his surprise, right by his head were a loaf of bread baked on some coals & a jug of water. He ate the meal & went back to sleep. 7 The angel of God came back, shook him awake again, & said, “Get up & eat some more—you’ve got a long journey ahead of you.” 8-9 He got up, ate & drank his fill, & set out. Nourished by that meal, he walked 40 days & nights, all the way to the mountain of God. When he got there, he crawled into a cave & went to sleep. Then the word of God came to him: “So Elijah, what are you doing here?”

For it will come to pass through great battle. #KerseWords #1Samuel17 - 24-25 The Israelites fell back the moment they saw the giant—totally frightened. The talk among the troops was, “Have you ever seen anything like this,this man openly & defiantly challenging Israel? The man who kills the giant will have it made. The king will give him a huge reward,offer his daughter as a bride, & give his entire family a free ride.” 32 “Master,” said David, “don’t give up hope. I’m ready to go&fight this Philistine.” 33 Saul answered David, “You can’t go & fight this Philistine. You’re too young & inexperienced—& he’s been at this fighting business since before you were born.” 34-37 David said, “I’ve been a shepherd, tending sheep for my father. Whenever a lion or bear came & took a lamb from the flock, I’d go after it, knock it down, & rescue the lamb. If it turned on me, I’d grab it by the throat & kill it. Lion or bear, it made no difference—I killed it. & I’ll do the same to this Philistine. God, who delivered me from the teeth of the lion & the claws of the bear, will deliver me from this Philistine.” 45-47 David answered, “You come at me w/sword & spear & battle-ax. I come at you in the name of God-of-the-Angel-Armies, the God of Israel’s troops, whom you curse & mock. This very day God is handing you over to me. 50 That’s how David beat the Philistine—w/a sling & a stone. “What lies behind us&before us are small matters compared to what lies w/i us. & when we bring what is w/i us out into the world,miracles happen. #RalphWaldoEmerson

What a #HappyNewYear  message from Pastor @mikewalrond @fcbcnyc ’s #WatchNight service: ”Our responsibility is to live the life God created us to live. Instead of living, some of us shrink back from living and settle into existing (out of fear, past disappointments, past hurts, etc). We are not waiting on God. God is waiting on us to believe in, trust in and to love ourselves again. God is waiting on us to rise and be who God created us to be! To be your best for God (and humanity), you must #LeanIntoLife . Life requires you in this season to be courageous and to lean in! To birth your hopes and dreams, lean into life and move with God! Do not fear, because God is with you! Let the leaning begin! It’s a new year and a new me! Be ready to cross over into your new season! It’s leaning time: Lean into your joy...peace...pain...

On Friday night, I could not sleep. And I was really upset about that! 😫 At one point, I went on Twitter. And @erwinmcmanus had just tweeted that he would be preaching @hillsongnyc on Saturday. #ToGodBeTheGlory for yesterday’s message, because I know that God ordered my steps there to hear that message at such a time in my journey: I have been waiting for the battles in my life to get easier. Now I know that I need to just focus on being #BattleReady ! Because as Pastor Erwin preached yesterday: “When you ask God to do something great with your life, it will come through great battles and struggles. Our greatness emerges out of our tears and pain. We must be willing to take on greater and greater battles to be great! ... If you entrust your life to the Creator of the Universe, your life will get worse. You will struggle more. There will be more tears and suffering. God will never allow you to settle for mediocrity and settle for the status quo! This is the only way to greatness! ... For you to be who God wants you to be, there is a struggle that takes place!” 😲👏🏿🙌🏿👋🏿🙋🏿‍♀️ #MyTestimony #NowImTellingMyBattlesToBringIt 💪🏿 #DiscipleofJesus #BattleReady #DestinedforGreatness #TheLastArrow #KreateGodsDreams #KreateYourDestiny #KreateYourGodSelf #MyFaithCreates #KerseWords #Inspiration #Empowerment #Strength #Faith #Hope #ThroughMeGodIsReal #Inspiration

To create God’s audacious dreams for you and humanity, become familiar with feeling and being “in over your head.” Run towards and take on the impossible! Do it afraid!

I was praying for someone really close to me recently. When the unimaginable happened in their life many years ago, it served as a catalyst for them giving up re: certain hopes & dreams they had for their life. Sure to the outside world, they have lived since those occurrences & are still living. But the truth is, in some significant ways, portions of them & their life are dead. In thinking of myself, I too have gone through some similar tragic, heartbreaking occurrences. Yet, in my great tragedies, I have experienced unimaginable breakthroughs. No matter what tragedies, obstacles, heartbreak & hard times you face, never lose your faith that #TheBestIsYetToCome . W/your faith, God’s best for your will surely come! #OurBestIsYetToCome #KreateYourDestiny #MyFaithCreates #KerseWords #Inspiration #Hope #Encouragement #Empowerment #Strength #Future #Love #Happiness #Joy #Peace #Spiritual #Romans8 :18-28 That’s why I don’t think there’s any comparison between the present hard times & the coming good times. The created world itself can hardly wait for what’s coming next. Everything in creation is being more or less held back. God reins it in until both creation & all the creatures are ready & can be released at the same moment into the glorious times ahead. Meanwhile, the joyful anticipation deepens. 22-25 All around us we observe a pregnant creation. The difficult times of pain throughout the world are simply birth pangs. But it’s not only around us; it’s within us. The Spirit of God is arousing us within. We’re also feeling the birth pangs. These sterile & barren bodies of ours are yearning for full deliverance. That is why waiting does not diminish us, any more than waiting diminishes a pregnant mother. We are enlarged in the waiting. We, of course, don’t see what is enlarging us. But the longer we wait, the larger we become, & the more joyful our expectancy. 26-28 The moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, & keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.
🎼 Most of all I am thankful You are just what I prayed for You are what I was made for Yes, I'm for sure Most of all I just want to mean the most to you Most of all, baby, I'm just tryna grow with you I just wanna go with you Cause you bring so much hope to the picture Some of us do find the one To fall in love And off of the Fucking face of the Earth with Some of us do deserve it A love that's true and perfect Some of us been through it all before Some of us do still come back for more ~ 🎤 @jheneaiko @irvingplaza singing #NewBalance (my fav song on her latest album 🙏🏿👏🏿🙌🏿🙏🏿👋🏿🙋🏿❤️🙏🏿) for her #TripTour . 😍❤️💞 #Love is real.

😲👏🏿🙌🏿👋🏿❤️ This is a #MustRead for #BlackWomenAtWork and should #BreakTheInternet ! I have admired this 👑 for a long time. This makes me love her even more! To #KreateYourDestiny , #KreateGodsDreams for you and humanity, and to #KreateYourGodSelf , be a “King Woman!” #MyFaithCreates #KerseWords “The term ‘King Woman,’ above all, shaped the direction of Mashonda’s curation. Drawing on the overt complexities of navigating womanhood, Mashonda defines what the show represents in her own terms: ‘Power and strength and vulnerability all wrapped up in one. I wanted to emulate what I would imagine the everyday modern woman to be, a humanist, someone that embodies female power, she’s also in touch with her masculinity and her femininity all at once. So she’s strong, but she’s soft and she’s honest, and she empowers other women and she empowers other women, and that’s what this show feels like.’ ... So here I am, this 32-year-old grown woman paying mortgage and interning at Global Grind [starting in 2013]. I knew that in order to learn what I needed to learn and create the connections that I needed I’d have to humble myself and put the work in and so I did just that,’ she said. ‘I sat in that office with like 18- to 22-year-olds, and I had no qualms about it because I knew that I was putting in the work.’ Mashonda’s earnest quest for knowledge paid off — and led her to unchartered territory. Through her work with LifeStyleHer, Mashonda realized she wanted to zero in on helping women in the art world, and thus, ArtLeadHer, a second platform, was born. But with this new territory, Mashonda again felt the need to educate herself in an unfamiliar field. She followed up her Global Grind internship with internships at art fairs before her artistic academic experience culminated while attending Christie’s Education, taking the time to study both stateside and across the pond in London through the program led by the famed art auction house. Mashonda then hit the ground running, both curating shows and representing female artists immediately following her final education endeavor.” Repost @mashondatifrere - Resilience, womanhood, female empowerment.. @artleadher

Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new. It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it? There it is! I’m making a road through the desert, rivers in the badlands. Wild animals will say ‘Thank you!’ —the coyotes and the buzzards— Because I provided water in the desert, rivers through the sun-baked earth, Drinking water for the people I chose, the people I made especially for myself, a people custom-made to praise me.

Hillary Clinton may not have broken the tallest glass ceiling in America—but one of you will. And you will be standing on the shoulders of women leaders like HRC whose story unlocks universal lessons in determination, survival, and resilience. This (very) special issue of @teenvogue GUEST-EDITED BY HRC explores what we can all learn from her impact, her style, and her grace under fire. Some will say it’s too partisan, too retrospective, too “echo-chamber-y.” This issue isn’t for them. It was designed for the millions of YOU who acknowledge that until women, girls, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community, immigrants, and the economically disadvantaged are on an equal playing field, we must hold space for these conversations and for platforms like this to exist. Very special thanks to the TEAM that made this dream possible: @HillaryClinton , Huma Abedin, Nick Merrill, @mojism , Capricia Marshall, @ChelseaClinton , Betsy Ebeling, @repmaxinewaters , @gloriasteinem , @roxanegay74 , @ducalauren , @ilanusglazer , seven-year-old artist Lila Suter-Chung (yes our iconic creative director @marie_suter ’s daughter), and our unmatched squad of Teen Vogue editors. +Huge shout out to @quentin_jones for a cover our readers will cherish forever.
Take risks, and don’t be afraid to get caught trying. Do your best to embrace the excitement that comes with not knowing what’s next, and remember that confidence and an open mind will always serve you better than insecurity and doubt. ... Here’s something else, Hillary: For a girl who likes to have a plan, you are going to take a lot of leaps of faith. I can’t promise they’ll all work out the way you want them to. But I can promise that you will learn from every single one of them. When your fellow students at Wellesley ask you to give the graduation speech on behalf of the class of 1969, you’ll be humbled and a little terrified. Do it anyway. Down the road, your tall, handsome boyfriend who’s crazy about politics will ask you to move to Arkansas with him. It will be a pretty outlandish suggestion—in fact, your friend Sara will spend the entire drive to Little Rock trying to talk you out of it—but your heart will steer you right. Later, that same man will encourage you to run for the U.S. Senate: “You’d be great at it. I’d love to vote for you.” You should do that, too. Oh, and when president-elect Barack Obama says he wants to talk to you about a job opportunity in his cabinet, hear him out. Serving your community, your state, and your country will be the greatest privilege of your life. Take criticism seriously but not personally. There will be people who want nothing more than to see you fail, but you can’t let them scare you. Live your life on your terms, not theirs. ... Believe in yourself. You’re going to do great. ~@hillaryclinton #ImWithHer #ThePeoplesPresident #KreateYourDestiny #KreateGodsDreams #KreateYourGodSelf #KerseWords Repost @teenvogue ・・・ “When you’re facing an uphill battle, be grateful for your persistence.

One of the toughest things that you will ever have to do throughout your life is to choose & then fight to maintain your #freedom .

It will pain your heart deeply to #letgo & to stay letting go. But you must resist & fight against the urge to be bound to what is not God’s dream for you or your happy #destiny .

I’ve heard their cries for deliverance from their slave masters; I know all about their pain. And now I have come down to help them, pry them loose from the grip of Egypt, get them out of that country and bring them to a good land with wide-open spaces, a land lush with milk and honey. 9-10 “The Israelite cry for help has come to me, and I’ve seen for myself how cruelly they’re being treated by the Egyptians. It’s time for you to go back: I’m sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people, the People of Israel, out of Egypt.” 11 Moses answered God, “But why me? What makes you think that I could ever go to Pharaoh and lead the children of Israel out of Egypt?” 12 “I’ll be with you,” God said. “And this will be the proof that I am the one who sent you: When you have brought my people out of Egypt, you will worship God right here at this very mountain.” #Exodus16 :1-3 On the fifteenth day of the second month after they had left Egypt, ... The whole company of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron there in the wilderness. The Israelites said, “Why didn’t God let us die in comfort in Egypt where we had lamb stew and all the bread we could eat? You’ve brought us out into this wilderness to starve us to death, the whole company of Israel!” “If we ever get free...We must do this by labor, by suffering, by sacrifice. ~#FrederickDouglass

Tonight, I surprisingly gave birth to a better, greater, and higher version of myself. When I think back to how this moment came to be, I realize that it came from the way that I courageously, boldly and intentionally live my life “on the edge” with only my faith in God, myself, and my heart’s desires to hold on to...doing what I feel called to do without fully understanding how I will or why I should... You will never become your highest and greatest self, or your God self, by living a safe, struggle-free life. It is through the things we dislike tremendously - our fears, struggles, and challenges - that we become, do, achieve and transform. To #KreateYourGodSelf , lean into your fears, embrace struggle and pursue a life outside of your comfort zone! #KerseWords “We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty. ~#MayaAngelou “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” ~#NealeDonaldWalsch #YesWeCan #Inspiration #Motivation #Encouragement #Transformation #Empowering #Empowerment

#MayaAngelou said, #Freedom is never free.” And as the Israelites learned in the book of #Exodus , it takes #faith , #courage and strength to get free. No matter the cost to you, #ChooseFreedom ! Yes, it’s majorly scary! Yes, it takes tremendous strength to do so! But it is totally worth it! For our best, happiest lives and greatest, highest selves are discovered not just in our freedom, but also in our journey to freedom. To #KreateYourDestiny #KreateGodsDreams #KreateYourGodSelf , become free by venturing forth into the unknown, trusting God all the way!!! #KerseWords 10-12 As Pharaoh approached, the Israelites looked up and saw them—Egyptians! Coming at them! They were totally afraid. They cried out in terror to God. They told Moses, “Weren’t the cemeteries large enough in Egypt so that you had to take us out here in the wilderness to die? What have you done to us, taking us out of Egypt? Back in Egypt didn’t we tell you this would happen? Didn’t we tell you, ‘Leave us alone here in Egypt—we’re better off as slaves in Egypt than as corpses in the wilderness.’” 13 Moses spoke to the people: “Don’t be afraid. Stand firm and watch God do his work of salvation for you today. Take a good look at the Egyptians today for you’re never going to see them again. 19:1-5 1-2 Three months after leaving Egypt the Israelites entered the Wilderness of Sinai. They followed the route from Rephidim, arrived at the Wilderness of Sinai, and set up camp. Israel camped there facing the mountain. 3-6 As Moses went up to meet God, God called down to him from the mountain: “Speak to the House of Jacob, tell the People of Israel: ‘You have seen what I did to Egypt and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to me. If you will listen obediently to what I say and keep my covenant, out of all peoples you’ll be my special treasure. The whole Earth is mine to choose from, but you’re special: a kingdom of priests, a holy nation.’ "My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style." ~#MayaAngelou

Tonight I pressed my way to @mistyonpointe ’s book signing @fishseddynyc with @abtofficial. On the #DayoftheGirl , it felt right to do this and be here. NYC was never my “dream” city. I actually find it VERY hard to be here. My being here is totally God’s dream for me. The challenges, struggles and obstacles that I have faced, overcome and endured personally, mentally and professionally have created me and continue to create me into my greatest, highest and best self. Girls and women in this nation and world have it tremendously hard for various reasons, especially black women and girls and other women and girls of color. On this #DayoftheGirl 2017, I want every woman and girl to know that those women and girls that they admire and look up to like #MistyCopeland are no different from them. These women and girls have “done the impossible” in the face of overwhelming and seemingly insurmountable odds. And they can to. In truth, they must, because this is the world we live in. To be a woman and girl is to be great, capable, and enough. My hope and pray is for there to be more pioneer women like Misty Copeland to show other women and girls and the world that #YesWeCan #KreateYourDestiny #KreateGodsDreams #KreateYourGodSelf #CreateAnotherAmerica ! #KerseWords #MistyxFishsEddy 🙏🏿❤️💞 #RiseMySistersNYC
On #DayoftheGirl , it is important for women and girls to know that it does not matter who does not believe in you/me/us.

Even when you give your best, disappointments are sure to come. & a no from God is not a bad thing. Learn to trust your journey & the timing of things happening for you in your life. To #KreateYourDestiny #KreateGodsDreams for you & the world & to #KreateYourGodSelf , continue to trust God & exercise your faith in the face of loss, disappointments, & frustrations. #KerseWords #Isaiah40 :27-31 Why would you ever complain, O Jacob, or, whine, Israel, saying, “God has lost track of me. He doesn’t care what happens to me”? Don’t you know anything? Haven’t you been listening? God doesn’t come & go. God lasts. He’s Creator of all you can see or imagine. He doesn’t get tired out, doesn’t pause to catch his breath. & he knows everything, inside & out. He energizes those who get tired, gives fresh strength to dropouts. For even young people tire & drop out, young folk in their prime stumble and fall. But those who wait upon God get fresh strength. They spread their wings & soar like eagles, They run & don’t get tired, they walk & don’t lag behind. #Jeremiah17 :7-8 But blessed is the man who trusts me, God, the woman who sticks w/God. They’re like trees replanted in Eden, putting down roots near the rivers— Never a worry through the hottest of summers, never dropping a leaf, Serene & calm through droughts, bearing fresh fruit every season. #Romans5 :3-5 There’s more to come: We continue to shout our praise even when we’re hemmed in with troubles, because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us, and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do next. In alert expectancy such as this, we’re never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary—we can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit! #2Corinthians4 :16-18 So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by w/o his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us.
What it feels like to live God’s dreams for you and the world on your journey: “God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.” #Ephesians3 :20 #KreateGodsDreams #KreateYourGodSelf #KerseWords Repost @avaduvernayfans ・・・ Ava DuVernay receiving the #DuBoisMedal @ Hutchins Center at Harvard. #AComptonGirl ❤️ 📷: dellmhamilton

Have the faith to make you and God’s dreams for you and the world happen. #KreateGodsDreams #KreateYourDestiny #KreateYourGodSelf #KerseWords #IAmADoer #Luke18 :1-8 Message - 1-3 Jesus told them a story showing that it was necessary for them to pray consistently and never quit. He said, “There was once a judge in some city who never gave God a thought and cared nothing for people. A widow in that city kept after him: ‘My rights are being violated. Protect me!’ 4-5 “He never gave her the time of day. But after this went on and on he said to himself, ‘I care nothing what God thinks, even less what people think. But because this widow won’t quit badgering me, I’d better do something and see that she gets justice—otherwise I’m going to end up beaten black-and-blue by her pounding.’” 6-8 Then the Master said, “Do you hear what that judge, corrupt as he is, is saying? So what makes you think God won’t step in and work justice for his chosen people, who continue to cry out for help? Won’t he stick up for them? I assure you, he will. He will not drag his feet. But how much of that kind of persistent faith will the Son of Man find on the earth when he returns?” “You can't just sit there and wait for people to give you that golden dream. You've got to get out there and make it happen for yourself.” – #DianaRoss “Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.

After two missed appointments for classes (don't ask 🤣), I finally made it to my first @ilkbharlem class. I was annoyed when I got there. Because I had dragged myself there. I was like: "I can't miss ANOTHER appointment!" Also I had to be there at 6am, 30 minutes before class, for orientation. #WhySway ?! 🤣 And the staff were super enthused and excited at 6am, which also annoyed me a little. 🤣 But I TOTALLY enjoyed the class. I received a GREAT workout. The instructors were really great, helpful and fun. One understood my pain. 🤣 And I absolutely LOVED punching and kicking the bag! I think I liked it too much! 😉🤣😆 I need a bag in my house! And my classmates were cool people. One lady shared with me how she had lost 50 pounds there. And what's a post without some inspiration?! 😊 To #KreateYourGodSelf #KreateYourDestiny #KreateGodsDreams , tell yourself that #YesYouCan . Believe in yourself! #KerseWords
Have you ever felt not fully appreciated, looked over, undervalued, or just unseen?! Unseen for your full worth, beauty and/or what you have to give to him/her/it?! Know that you are not unseen. God sees you. And God will ensure that you are seen by those that are best and right for you. So let go. Let go of those people, spaces and places that are incapable of truly seeing you, or valuing you fully. Have the faith to let go and trust God. In doing so, you create the space in your life to receive God's best for you. Additionally, there is a freedom and happiness to be found in letting go of toxic people, relationships, and spaces. #LetGoandLetGod #KreateGodsDreams for you. You will not be disappointed.

Lyrics to @kirkfranklin 's song "More Than I Can Bear" include: 🎼 I've gone through the fire & I've been through the flood I've been broken into pieces Seen lightnin' flashin' from above But through it all I remember That He loves me & He cares & He'll never put more on me Than I can bear 🎤 In #Daniel3 , in the story of Shadrach, Meshach, & Abednego & their refusal to bow & worship a golden statute, they were thrown into a furnace of blazing fire. The scripture reads: 19 Nebuchadnezzar ordered the furnace heated up 7 times more than was customary, 20 & ordered some of the strongest guards in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, & Abednego and to throw them into the furnace of blazing fire. 21 So the men were bound & thrown into the furnace of blazing fire. 22 B/c the king’s command was urgent & the furnace was so overheated, the raging flames killed the men who lifted Shadrach, Meshach, & Abednego. 23 But the 3 men, Shadrach, Meshach, & Abednego, fell down, bound, into the furnace of blazing fire. 24 Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished & rose up quickly. He said to his counselors, “Was it not 3 men that we threw bound into the fire?” They answered the king, “True, O king.” 25 He replied, “But I see 4 men unbound, walking in the middle of the fire, & they are not hurt; & the 4th has the appearance of a god. ... 28 Nebuchadnezzar said, “Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, & Abednego, who has sent delivered his servants who trusted in him. ... 30 Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, & Abednego in the province of Babylon." What we go through does not have to consume & overtake us. It has been my experience that the pressure & intensity we feel & go through can actually create us into our better, greater & higher selves. Consider diamonds: "Most natural diamonds are formed at high temperature (2,200 degrees Fahrenheit) and pressure (squeezed under pressure of 725,000 pounds per square inch) in the Earth's mantle (100 miles below the surface). It has to quickly rush to the surface to cool." To #KreateYourGodSelf , keep looking up & getting up! Today, through it all, I GOT UP & served at my church & saw @nycballet 's #SwanLake . #ToGodBeTheGlory #KerseWords
To believe in God is to believe that b/c you are, God is. You are never alone. & you do not act alone. Whatever you can imagine, dream & hope is possible for you. Do not place limitations on yourself & God. B/c God is w/you, impossible does not exist. Have faith in your infinite possibilities to #KreateYourDestiny #KreateGodsDreams #KreateYourGodSelf #KerseWords #Matthew19 :25-26 The disciples were staggered. “Then who has any chance at all?” Jesus looked hard at them & said, “No chance at all if you think you can pull it off yourself. Every chance in the world if you trust God to do it.” #John10 :24 So the Jews gathered around him & said to him, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.” 25 Jesus answered, “I have told you, & you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name testify to me; 26 but you do not believe, b/c you do not belong to my sheep. 27 My sheep hear my voice. I know them, and they follow me. 29 What my Father has given me is greater than all else, & no one can snatch it out of the Father’s hand. 30 The Father and I are one.” 31 The Jews took up stones again to stone him. 32 Jesus replied, “I have shown you many good works from the Father. For which of these are you going to stone me?” 33 The Jews answered, “It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you, but for blasphemy, because you, though only a human being, are making yourself God.” 34 Jesus answered, “Is it not written in your law, ‘I said, you are gods’? 35 If those to whom the word of God came were called ‘gods’—and the scripture cannot be annulled— 36 can you say that the one whom the Father has sanctified and sent into the world is blaspheming because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’? 37 If I am not doing the works of my Father, then do not believe me. 38 But if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, so that you may know and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father.” “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. ~#MuhammadAli 🙏🏿💪🏿✊🏿
Happy Birthday text from my daddy. 🤗😘❤️💞 #DaddysGirl for life! #BestDaddyintheWorld ! #ImBlessedToHaveHimToo 😆😊 #KerseWords
#KerseWords Birthday #Mood : I am extremely grateful for another year of life. I didn't expect to be "here," as so much about my life is a surprise to me. I am truly living God's dreams for me. I expect nothing but more joy, happiness, peace, strength and faith for the journey ahead. For my life, #ToGodBeTheGlory !!! 🙌🏿❤️ #KreateYourDestiny #KreateGodsDreams #KreateYourGodSelf #KerseWords #AliveandLiving
Today is my birthday. So I am giving thought to what another year of life means... Our breath is a sign of God's presence in our lives. As long as you are living, believe in your possibilities. Refuse to allow your "bad" life experiences to define what you believe is possible for you in your life, especially the older you get. Be ever in love with your life, believing the best about it. And honor God and your breath by loving and living your life. And with your faith in your greatest life, watch God blow your mind by blessing you with your best, happiest life, a life beyond your wildest imagination! #KreateYourDestiny #KreateGodsDreams #KreateYourGodSelf #KerseWords #AliveandLiving #Ephesians 3:20-21 God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. “No matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.” – #MayaAngelou
