    LOVE

    Monday, December 26, 2011, 7:10 PM [General]

    Thanks for the prayers I am feeling better and multitasking for some projects for the new year!

    O.K. I'm back.  Isn't it ironic that after a childhood and an adulthood of verbal, mental and physical abuse that one would learn to set boundaries and then abuse themselves with bouts of depression.

    I was told that depression is the height of selfishness.  You know the song me,me,me.

    "I'm always on my mind."  So my closed mouth friend told me to do something for someone else because nothing absolutely nothing happens in God's world by mistake.

    She says I am gifted and I have been burying  my talents.  Yeah, that's how these group of women talk to me. (Straight with no chaser!!!)  So does my Pastor.

    Anyway, I guess you can get alot accomplished after a resentment.  I resented them talking to me like that!  Who you think you are anyway?  You got your nerve!  Look at you with all that information and still single!!!

    Yeah, those were all the thoughts running through my head.  But the bible says that a wise man seeks counsel from the godly.

    But guess what it distrubed me into action just to prove that I can do it and not only can I do it but when I finish I'll loan you some money!  How bout that?

    That God for their information because I accomplished more today than all this year.

    Here's some information that I got off the internet if anyone suffers from depression like me and taking a stand on close family members who are verbally abusive and occasionally withhold love to proof a point.

    No, you are not sinning by taking this stand. God does not expect us to take abuse. It is destructive to our minds and can in turn affect our bodies. Harsh words can affect us do deeply. The uncaring and unloving acts that come from other people do have an affect on us. The Bible says that when our spirits get broken, it drieth the bones. The immune system is in the bones. We see a lot of diseases of the immune system and the cause of this is 80 percent of the time is spiritual. Think about osteoporosis. The bones are dried. Most of the time if we ask people about their lives we find out about abuse in the past. God is always right on with His Word

    Depression

    Monday, December 26, 2011, 12:04 PM [General]

    No one should condemn someone because he is depressed.  the sufferer often already fsels self-revulsion.  He blames himself and perhaps thinks he has sinned.  He may submit himself to torturous recriminations and dredge in all the evil he has done in his life, real or imagined.  Because of their high standards, Christians can especially be vulnerable to this thinking.

    Passing judgment on someone who is already depressed will only add to his sorrow.  When Elijah became fearful and depressed, he fled from his God-given responsibilities.

    Yet, God didn't berate Elijah.  He spoke to him in a "still small voice" and encouraged him (1 kings 19:1-18)

    Christmas

    Tuesday, December 20, 2011, 6:32 PM [General]

    Christmas is my most absolute favorite time of the year and guess what?  I have to work!

    And what's so ironic is that I said I would never be with anyone who worked or was not home for Christmas.  God really has a since of humor!

    I have to work cause I need the money so I guess I will create my own Christmas after I finish this 7 day project.  The good news it that after this I get to work the Academy Awards what a trip!

    I asked God for a job while I am creating this new company I'm starting and he gave me what I asked for maybe I should have stated after Christmas!

    Anyway, I am grateful!

    P.S.

    I learned the procrastination is a five syallable word for sloth.  Wow! Can you believe it?

    I have really started doing better in that area and I am getting alot accomplished.

    Don't Be Discouraged

    Monday, December 19, 2011, 9:03 AM [General]

    7Be still and rest in the Lord; wait for Him and patiently lean yourself upon Him; fret not yourself because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked devices to pass.

    8Cease from anger and forsake wrath; fret not yourself--it tends only to evildoing.

    9For evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait and hope and look for the Lord [in the end] shall inherit the earth.(A)

    10For yet a little while, and the evildoers will be no more; though you look with care where they used to be, they will not be found

    Some times it feels and seem as though God is blind to what others are doing but don't fret!  He's sees it all!

    Keep traveling steadily along his pathway and you will see it happen!

    It will happen suddenly! BAM!

    I am not only talking to you I am so talking to myself. 

    Sometimes it seems as though God is moving to slow but he's always right on time.

    I have to keep myself encouraged when things are hard and things look hopeless and you have people who are constantly using deceit to try to get you off balanced so that they can say Security!

    Keep your focus! And keep God in view!  You will pass the test because it's only a test of your faith!

    Happy Holidays!

    Evil Is Always Present

    Sunday, December 18, 2011, 12:17 PM [General]

    I was talking to someone and they said "You Know we need to tell... that ... is evil, causing division, using your secure workers to get rid of whoever she chooses and befriending and using the people in high places including his assistants to help get rid of peopel."

    This is my reply "No, if you want him to know you tell him."

    What I need to do is to look at and watch my character because I know that usually when I see something in someone it is because it is something that I also see in myself that I don't like.

    And the word of God proclaims that God will let the tare grew with the wheat.  Meaning he is giving us all a chance to get our life right.

    What I need to do is to stay humble and let God work it out.  I don't want to come into the church and then put down everyone around me because their not doing what I think they should do.

    And I especially don't want to focus on that person when my focus should be on God and my prayers should be for that person because who am I?

    With all the things I did before God saved me I don't have the right to say that you should be stoned.

    Listen, there is nothing absolutely nothing the Satan can do to you without God's permission.

    In Job, Satan had to get permission from God to do anything to Job.  But listen carefully even though God allowed Satan to do all those terrible things he knew that his outcome would be greater.

    He knew that Job had the character and that Job knew the word of God to carry him through.  Yes, the word because the bible says that Job said that "Naked I came into the World and Naked I'll go."

    Don't get discouraged because God is with you!  Yes, I may be down and out right now but believe me God is up to something.

    He's building my character for my next blessing!

    There is nothing God won't do for his people, he'll part the red sea to set you free and make your enemies give you their possession to bless you, he'll send manna from heaven, he'll make someone strike a rock so that you can have water and he will destroy your enemies!   H-a-l-l-u-e-h!

    My God can never fail!

    Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get back in the race!

    Someone is waiting for you to take your rightful place so that you can be a blessing to someone else!

    Go get em tiger!

    Cyber Love

    Saturday, December 17, 2011, 9:12 AM [General]

    I don't believe that any man is an island but I received an email and the sender stated that he was looking to find true love.  O.k., Well, I am all for true love but I don't do internet relationships.

    1.  Because I can't look you in the eyes to see your reactions.

    2.  You could be telling me anything

    3.  I heard a story from a Mother at our church who went on the internet and met a man who said he was 6"3 but when she met him he was 4"11.

    O.k., That settled it for me!

    If it works for others that's great I just prefer not to.  I would just prefer to meet him the old fashioned way.  I believe that God will send him to my door!

    Yeah! My sound crazy but it happens.

    Seasons Greetings!  Enjoy your Christmas, it's a beautiful time of the Year!

    Financial Crunch

    Saturday, December 17, 2011, 12:01 AM [General]

    I have been reading the recent posts in forums regarding finances.  I was watching Suzie Orman today and she gave some great advice as usual.  She said to "Recreate Your American Dream."  She talked about how people or accuring more financial debt because they're going back to school and getting student loans in which their unable to pay back because of the inability to find employment.

    She suggested to "Recreate Your American Dream."  Let's discuss that idea!

    I am a real estate broker and when the market was good I could make $30,000 and one transaction or even more.

    I had a 6 bedroom house with 4 bathrooms and it was just me and my daugther living in it.  I bought two mercedez in one year amongst all my shopping escapades.

    My credit scoree was a 738 and life was great.  I could buy anything at anytime.

    Today things are different I live in an one bedroom apartment I had to downsize quite a bit my apartment is 1100 sq ft and my house was over 3500 sq ft.

    My credit score as gone to pot and I don't nearly make the money I use to in fact it's no where near what I use to make.

    But guess what I am grateful!  A special someone prayed me into this apartment and I know that God is taking care of me.  I know that God is going to do it again.

    But next time I won't misuse what he gives me.  There are some priniciples that I didn't at heed to.

    I have a friend who owes the I.R.S. $18,000,000.00.  I have two other friend who are multi millionaires who are doing well but squeeze a nickel so hard that the Indian whines up riding the buffalo and wouldn't give you a dime if you needed to make a phone call.  But guess what that's their choice cause that's their money my job is to get my own.

    I was told that I must be self supporting by my own contributions.  I am trying to recreate my dream by starting a new business.  It's a creative and witty idea that God gave me.

    I read the bible and I believe that God wants us prosperous even has our soul prospers.  So with that said God will find a way to bless us if we cooperate within his principles and act accordingly. God even says that he will make his blessing overtake us.

    If I stay out of the malls and stores I can save and do alot better financially.  The solution is not more debt but to look at the way I spend and treat money.

    Example:  I grew up in a house on the hill with two mercedez in the driveway and we had the money to enjoy life I wanted for nothing.  But I hated that house cause there was always arguing, bitterness and strife.  i didn't feel as though I was loved or liked nor was I talked to as though I was.

    Now, I recently discovered why I treat money the way I do I associate those feelings with money because somehow I felt that money brings the unhappiness I felt as a child.  It sound ironic but that's my truth what's yours.

    So, I had to recreate my thoughts of money so that I didn't think that way and therefore and have to ge rid of it as soon as I got it.

     

    N-0-e-l !

    Christmas

    Friday, December 16, 2011, 3:29 PM [General]

    I was sent an email recently regarding Christmas and Christmas is my absolute most favorite season of the year.  I love everything about Christmas!  I love the decorations, the festival spirits and the generosity. 

    Unfortunately, my family is estrangled right now but never the less Christmas will be a little different.

    So, I get to create my own Christmas this year.  Because I have a whole community of friends I was taught that I never have to be alone.  

    So if any one else is spending Christmas without family don't isolate and be alone unless you absolutely want to. 

    The best Christmas I ever had I spent helping others!  That will definitely get you out of yourself and keep you grateful.

    M-e-r-r-y C-h-r-i-s-t-m-a-s!!!
