Feast your eyes on this

Sit down. I’ve been expecting you. I hope you came with an appetite, because what I have prepared for you, will satisfy all of your cravings. Not only will it be fulfilling, but it’ll be like nothing you’ve had before. Neither Burger King or McDonald’s can give you what I can. Although you may “Have it your way” and proclaim “I’m lovin it”, once you get a taste of what I have to offer, you’ll never want anything else again. So please, take your seat and allow me to serve you. As you sit down, I want you to take special notice of those around you. I know you may be wondering why they are standing, but I didn’t have any room for them at the table. Granted you are seated alone, but it’s only because, this spread was prepared just for you. Partake of this food and eat until your heart’s content, for I have “prepared a feast for you in the presence of your enemies”. Take and indulge in the many blessings I have given you, and worry not as they look on. I extended an invitation to them as well as I did you. However, I gave you the provisions, and them a front row seat!

No matter what you are going through or up against, God will bless you abundantly, and do it in front of your enemies!

Until next time my NOTE takers!

God’s Plan

Dana has just received some wonderful news! The very thing that has been desperately trying to hold her back, has decided to let go. After a year of being captive, Dana is finally about to be set free! Her captor has decided to get rid of her, because she feels she’s no longer of use. Although Dana has been a good and faithful servant, her services was just not “enough”. On several occasions she’s tried to have Dana removed, but she didn’t have the power too. Having seen no other way to let her go, she instead opted to “cut” her loose. The enemy was happy, because she thought by “releasing” Dana, it meant she had “nowhere else to go”. Needless to say, the only place Dana is going, is UP! She’s excited and overjoyed, because she knows the enemy’s plans has failed, but God’s has not!

It’s easy to accept the fate someone has chosen for your life, especially when you feel it’s all there is. However, you can worry about the things they’re going to do, or you can rest in knowing there’s nothing God can’t handle. Like Dana, you may be in a “position” that plans to “write you off”, but understand this, “God knows the plans He has for you…..they are plans to prosper and not harm you, but plans to give you hope and future”. What God has for you, is for you, and He “plans” to allow your enemies to see it!

All Him, none of me

I don’t want the credit, especially when it doesn’t belong to me! Since I started this platform, I’ve had a lot of people reach out to me to express their thanks and offer support, amongst other things. Although at times it’s hard for me to accept compliments, kudos and pats on the back, one thing I won’t do, and that’s steal God’s thunder (no pun intended).

I’m a writer, so I know firsthand what it’s like for someone to take credit for something you did, and they didn’t do. That’s why I refuse to cheat God of the glory and praise, when I know I didn’t do anything; it was all Him. Anything positive I do, it’s of God. I may be one’s source of inspiration or motivation, but it’s only because I’ve allowed God to use me.

My goal has always been to be a person who’s very genuine, loving and caring, that when people see me, they would see God (in me) and want Him for themselves. Besides, if it were not for Him, there’d be no me. Now do you see why the credit is His and none of mine? Sometimes, we go through things in life that we don’t necessarily like, but it’s not for us; it’s for Him and His glory. I don’t question why anymore, because years ago, He revealed to me the reason; you! It was all done to help YOU!

The next time you (or anyone for that matter) feel compelled to place me on a throne, remember, there’s already someone sitting there!

Until next time my NOTE takers!

The Greatest Deposit

Everyone has been given “The Greatest Deposit” they’ll ever receive, yet so many people don’t know what it is. On the other hand, some of them do, but they do whatever they can to avoid it, or use the excuse that they don’t know what “it” is. Everyone has a PURPOSE, and whatever your purpose is, is the “Greatest Deposit” you’ll ever receive. It’s God’s will for you, and if you are “unsure” what His will is, just pray and ask Him.

For a very long time, I questioned what my purpose was and why everyone else knew it, but me. I love writing, public speaking and encouraging others, but I didn’t think it was what I was supposed to be doing for the rest of my life. Needless to say, it’s EXACTLY what I want to do for the rest of my life! I love what I do, and give God all the glory and praise, for blessing me with the “Greatest Deposit” He could’ve given me.

When I started writing, it was not to touch people, impact them or make an impression on them. I did it to release me of my depression, anxiety and because I got complete joy out of it. I felt (and still do) relaxed and free whenever I wrote. Simply put, it just makes me feel soooooo good! When I was going through my darkest days, I didn’t realize then, all that God was setting up for me. I needed to go through some of the things I did, so I could be able to help others.

To be honest, help is exactly what I’ve been doing, even though I didn’t realize that’s what it is. All I know how to do is be myself, but little did I know, that being myself is what people needed. The very thing that I kept asking God to give me clarity on, was something I had all along, but didn’t quite know what “it” was. Once I figured it out, I was on a mission to make a “deposit” into every person’s life that I came in contact with.

Everybody has a purpose and whatever it is, is the deposit that God has chosen to input into you. You can allow the “deposit” to sit in you and go unused, or you can make a “withdrawal” and bless someone else with your wealth! If you are unsure of what deposit you’ve been given, pray to God to give you clarity and understanding. After all, He’s the one who gave it to you!

Until next time my NOTE takers!
