This is the day the Lord has made, I shall rejoice and be glad in it. My eyes shall see the wonders of God. I expect miracles of elevation, freedom both physically and mentally, prosperity, abundance, opened doors, favor from both man & God, overflowing blessings and whatever my FATHER decides to do. God will make a way out of no way because I believe HE can do ALL THINGS but fail. I’ve searched all over and found there was NOBODY greater so why not trust and believe with all that is within you!!!!!!!!!!
When this song was released I felt released. The words spoke volume then and still do today. It was Mary J Blige’s big moment of being set free and truly comfortable with who and where she was in life. I’m at that point now and I thank God for it. I will fight for my peace. I got to have it, no if’s and’s or but’s about it.
It’s really okay to let people, places and things go. Don’t be afraid to venture without that man/woman in your life. Don’t be afraid to let that job go if you’re unhappy. Don’t be afraid to stop hanging with that crowd. Don’t be afraid to be transparent. Don’t be afraid!!!!
God desires the BEST for you and will see to it that the BEST arrives at your front door just as soon as you start believing you deserve God’s BEST.
How will you know what’s next if you still holding on to what’s now? And whoever don’t like it….well I’ll just let Mary tell em…..
I’m not a perfect person, but I’m a great friend.
I don’t always say or do the right things, but I will never do anything intentionally to harm anyone.
I can sometimes talk way too much, it’s never to degrade but to uplift, inspire, teach, motivate; and sometimes that may seem degrading if it’s not what you want to hear.
I’m not rich in money YET, but I’m rich in spirit and truth. It’s MY truth, it has NOTHING to do with you.
I’m on a journey and I have to walk this alone. It would be great to have supporters, true friends (not testers) cheerleaders, but that’s not the case. I’ve discovered when God is for you the world seemingly is against you, but HE can defeat anyone in HIS path, so as long as I follow HIS lead my pathway is clear.
People can get so caught up in what others are saying or doing and can’t live their life, that’s insanity. Sitting around waiting for someone’s demise, rock bottom, snap, so you can have something to say “I told you so about” that’s just cruel. If you find yourself faced with people like this and you call them friend it’s time to un-friend them. Get around people that’s going somewhere, striving for something greater, working towards their dream, pushing pass limitations and connect immediately.
If you can see it in your mind, you can hold it in your hands——- Enough said!!!!!!!!!!
We weren’t sent here to be perfect, we were sent here to make a difference.
It has come to my attention that perfection is what the majority aims for. That’s ludicrous to me. How can one seek perfection with so many flaws I ask?
God “Well Tracy a lot of my children think by doing a makeover it will make them perfect. They also believe that I had no idea of what I was doing in my creative process. I made the entire body imperfect. No two eyes are the same, no breast, not even your legs. It’s always one shorter or longer than the other. I did that because I looked into the future and saw what my children were going to do so I prevented perfection. I want what is imperfect to make a difference. You all are individuals and sent for a purpose. Use your imperfection to make it perfectly alright to be yourself; to embrace what I created, to love one another despite the flaws, to look past the mirror and focus on the heart of the matter. Only when you love you for who you are it is then you will make a difference perfectly.”
Me “I use to hate my figure until I realized you don’t make mistakes. So since you created me this way then I’m just perfect. It’s always good talking with you Father. I will make sure to relay the message. So you know I like to sum things up. How do you suggest I phrase this?”
God “Ask them which has more value – the look of a thing or the actions?”
When you’re special you must know you invite special warfare.
It’s not strange that you are going through a storm in life. It’s not strange that everything seems to happen to you. It’s not strange that when it rains it pours. It’s all designed because you are indeed special. There is something about you that draws that type of warfare to you. The enemy knows you are destined for greatness. He also knows you’re guaranteed success, but what he don’t know is how God is going to go about getting success to you; so he tries whatever he can to stop you from believing ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE for you. I was going through and still facing storms but they’ve taken on an entire new meaning all because of this particular passage of scripture:
James 1:2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance (patience). Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
I smiled really hard after reading this because I actually realized what it meant. My mindset changed. I started saying “bring it on” because I knew with each level of trial was a new level of faith. With each level I get closer and closer to my destiny and guaranteed success.
It’s a special assignment created just for you!!!! So don’t fret over the storms, embrace them with joy while reaching your next level of faith. All things really do work together for your good.
Change your environment before it changes you.
This is something I’ve always told my children. Be careful of the people you allow into your life, space, heart, and especially the ones you call friends. Not everyone is your friend I would say. Not everyone is deserving of your time, attention, and your mind space. You don’t have to fit in. It’s quite alright to stand alone. I remember the times my mother would say those same words too me. She would say you’re an individual, you’re supposed to be by yourself. Allow folk to gravitate to you, don’t follow anyone, LEAD everyone by being you at all times. She always did have the perfect words at the perfect time. Her wisdom was beyond measure and it’s all I have to stand on. She didn’t have loads of money or a family business to leave behind so she gave us the next best thing; which I’ve come to realize is the best thing. She left us with God ordained wisdom!
With wisdom you can gain riches, have great health, power over injustice, and charming charisma. People will naturally gravitate to you when you walk in wisdom. Having this gift also allows you to choose real friends. Having wisdom comes with many gifts up under its umbrella; such as the gift of discerning things, smarts, power over fools, love, creation and my most important one of all, the gift of letting go!
We can’t all leave a legacy of money to our children but we can all leave something for them to stand on. Give your children the gift of wisdom. Be real with them. Don’t be so caught up in being a friend. Be a loving parent that give good gifts that last a lifetime.
Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me, but HE said to me “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
It’s that certain thing I can’t seem to shake. I try hard to not think on those things, not do those things, not say those things, not be those things but that one certain thing always get me. That one certain person rubs me the wrong way. That one certain sin calls my name. I talk, pray, plead, cry, pout and anything else I can think of to get God to take it away, but HE just wont do it. He just tells me HIS grace is enough to sustain me.
With that being said I learned that 10% of life is what happens to me but 90% is what I do about what happens to me. God wants me, you and US to do something about it. Don’t keep praying about that ONE thing because HE is not going to take it away, HE’s just going to sustain you. One day you’ll eventually get tired of that one thing and do the right thing.
After all HIS power is made perfect in weakness.
You must allow God to be God!
If you’re anything like me you want to control the situation. You do all you can to make things turn out the way you desire. You have plans A, B, and C all to the rescue. However, when God is in the midst of the situation NONE of your plans will succeed. It’s almost like He is closing every door. Of course I pray about the situation only to hear God speak what I never want to hear. Yes, I said I don’t want to hear it. Not that God is saying anything bad, but He is saying allow HIM to be in control. The conversation went something like this
“God, why does this have to be this way? Why don’t you just show me what the end will be so I can hurry and get this over with. You told me to lean not to my own understanding but to acknowledge you and allow you to direct my path. Well can you direct me through the right door?”
“Tracy when will you get this together? Do you want to take my place? Do you think you can do this better than me?”
“Well, I think I can help out some kind of way. I don’t wanna take your place. I just want this storm to end so I can see the sun shine in my life again. I’m tired of the storms.”
“The SON always shine on you but you’re walking with your eyes closed. You’ve closed your spiritual eyes and have become blind to the light of your breakthrough. Because you’ve done that you’re now walking in absolute distress. I got this Tracy. I am God yesterday, today and forever more. I don’t need your help. I need your obedience, your faith and trust. Stop looking at my hands and look at my eyes. See me!”
“Father God I’m allowing you to be YOU all by yourself. I trust you’re seeing me through.
I always like to end my Friday’s on a beautiful note. Something we can all relate too. Something that doesn’t divide or cause confusion. Something that gets everyone feeling some kind of way. M.U.S.I.C
