Dare to Dream

Ephesians 3: 20-21 says “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.”

Awake thou that sleepeth, arise and get into action. It’s time for that dream of yours to come to pass. You have a God that’s waiting to exceeding abundantly do all that you can ask, think or (dream). Hallelujah! In the words of our preacher today, Pastor Selwyn Hayling of Grenada, the believer of God needs to move beyond their prayers to seeing the manifestation of His supernatural powers.  DREAM!  That which is conceived in you is of God, and if it is causing you to hope and believe God to fulfill it for you; it’s a dream.  Now Wake Up!

“A man’s mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure”.  (Prov 16:9)  God is bigger than your dream, bigger than your dream to be successful, to be a writer, to be a singer, to be a wife, to be a good mother or father.  He is just bigger.  And He’s been waiting to get His hands on your dreams.  He’s been ready to show you His power to do more with those “little”, “medium” or “large” sized dreams of yours for some time now.  What are you waiting on? Let them go and while you’re at it, let Him (GOD) out of the little box you have him in.  Who says you can’t?  It wasn’t me, and it surely isn’t that same God who says “That I can do all things through Christ whcih strengthens me”.

Here’s the thing; Dreamers can’t hang out and party till late hours, dreamers can’t sleep all day and all night, dreamers don’t waste time, dreamers can’t be casual.  Dreamers are not ORDINARY people.  They wake early, pray and study often, sacrifice sleep and food when necessary, and are strong participators in life.  Dreamers are always pregnant with a dream. Dreamers believe when everything around them seems to be working against the dream.

 Last thing…Dreamers do not wear pajamas and bed slippers, they wear hard hats and working boots. Get to steppin’ y’all.

 DREAMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I dare you! No! I double dare you to dream.

The 7th Day: Finding your Day of Rest

The 7th day phenomenon was one I became acutely aware of in March of 2009. The kids and I were living in a woman’s shelter and I would notice the same event happening to each woman that came in after me.

If a woman arrived at the shelter on a Sunday, you would find that every Sunday she would be extremely stressed and usually threatening to leave or some other drama. I remember going in on a Thursday and so every Thursday found me unable to cope with the simplest issues that the kids would have and I certainly wasn’t up to be around other women’s troublesome kids. Even worse, I wanted out of there and soon and to hell with the house rules. Continue reading

Domestic Violence – My Story II

Having your own money is a key part of being able to walk away from violent relationships, says Nerissa Golden.

The second time I was in the shelter, I was divorced and alone. I literally had run for my life and had no choice but to leave the kids behind.

Three weeks prior, my parents had asked me to leave their home with my children, knowing fully well I had no resources or place to take them. During this period, I had also been waiting on the Lord to manifest some promises that He had shown me to come to pass, so I was not too afraid about leaving. Often, when God wants us out, He will allow our very family and friends to be the pressure that drives us out to the place where only He can sustain us. I knew this was a such a time and so to many who could not see the rationale, I saw it as totally normal and God ordained. Continue reading

CHYLL (Pronounced “chill”) – Sit Still and Know that God…

By Dianne Greenaway

Ruth 3:18
Then said she (Naomi), Sit still, my daughter (Ruth), until thou know how the matter will fall: for the man (Boaz) will not be in rest, until he have finished the thing this day.

I was reminded today from the Word of God, that there are times when having done all I can do to take care of a troubling situation or even during the course of handling day to day situations that arise, that I must sit still! Quote: “Yes we say “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me”, and we must do all that we can do, but when we’ve reached the end of all that we can do, we must let God do all the things that we could not do.” Unquote MJHG 01-17-10.
