1. Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.

  2. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

  3. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

  4. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

  5. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Psalm 100 | King James Version

Hello, loyal readers! I wanted to talk to you today about the word Freedom. We hear about this powerful word, but have we ever considered how do we achieve this in our own lives. Why do I say this? Because we may have some areas in our lives that we are not free from.

Webster dictionary defines it as the absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action. Liberation from the power of another. Boldness of conception or execution. With the understanding of what freedom represents as it is stated in the dictionary, we now can determine what areas of our lives needs to be liberated!

Doing a self analyzes will bring awareness of places within ourselves that can be tackled for liberty to reign. First, what mindsets are holding you bond? Expose it, kick it out, and bring powerful and truthful thoughts that will combat against your freedom. Safeguard your mind because your life depends on it!

As you then consider all aspects of your life, such as your finances, relationships, work life, etc. you will be breaking of the chains that held you captive for so long. Please consider that there will be times that you will need help from others that also were in your predicament. They will be able to give you strategies so you can be free sooner rather than later.

Do not enjoy your freedom alone! Help others get their breakthrough by been there for support, encouragement and wisdom. We are in this together to win the war against the liberties that was given to us by God himself!

“For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.” Galatians 5:13

Peace, Love, and Joy!

Hello, loyal readers! In today’s blog, I will be speaking candidly about coming face to face with someone we prefer not to encounter. Who is that? Oneself! It is extremely scary. Many times we run away rather than confront it because the truth hurts!

Why? Because we have to look in the mirror of truth the reality of our flaws, disappointments, fears, and failures. However, when we get the courage to meet ourselves in the mirror eye to eye. We will encounter who we truly are. You are the sum of all your life’s experiences. The good, the bad, and the ugly.

Now, your experiences does not define you. You and should only be you who determines the significance of what you went through. Don’t get stuck there! Discover what were the life lessons of what you went through. Draw a positive outlook even in the most challenging situations you faced.

Ask the questions, “what did I learn from these experiences?” What will I do differently in future circumstances? Uncover misconceptions that keep you bound. See with eyes of wonder, hope, and excitement. Above all, still maintain a heart willing to love, trust, and give of yourself. Only this time you will do it wiser!

Remember you are not the enemy! You are your own best friend to confide in as you walk this journey called life. The greatest part is that you are not doing it alone. God is with you ALWAYS!! He will show you the way and uncover the truth about yourself. You will mature from your experiences as you depend on Him wholeheartedly.

“Teach me your ways, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.” Psalms 86:11

Peace, Love, and Joy!
