We go through life and happy with the pleasant things God gives us but when we receive unpleasant we get upset and wonder why. Just as the sun shines, the rain comes and as you receive roses, they have thorns. Be blessed by this word that was given to me. #beunbreakable
I'm always thankful after a long day of work and meeting different people. When I take my time each evening to pray and study. I'm always in awe of the many scriptures that I've read many times in my life, but only in certain moments as we cross different paths. Some scriptures take on a deeper meaning. In all that I do, I never want God to abandon me. I pray each day to be wiser and more giving than the day before. I wish each one of you laughter on your saddest day and hope on your darkest night. Be uplifted. Be inspired. Be Unbreakable.
His eyes are full of compassion and yet weary from life's despair.
Whenever, I'm in his presence my heart overflows with sympathy. I can't
carry the cross that he bears but I can medicate the wounds with a remedy
of hope, love & laughter. Life has took its toll on his heart, mind and soul.
And maybe, just maybe I've made it in enough time to heal a piece
of him, that got lost in the cold.
With that being said, use your time wisely. Use it to build, not to tear down. Use it to love, not to hate. Use it to encourage, not to put someone else down. Use it to give, not to take. Use it to share the love of God and not the foolishness of man. Don't fall into the trap of material prosperity and forget to store your treasures in heaven. Though the hare was the fastest in the race. The tortoise still beat him to the finish line. For it is not what you have and how fast you're moving up the ladder. It's about what you give and the time you take to help others along the way. Have an UNBREAKABLE day and many blessings. www.beunbreakable.com
As every one travel into the buildings this morning because YOU are the church. I pray you are not looking for a word to agree with your wrong but to call it out. We always should be led by truth, not sugared down water. Wrong is wrong and right is right. That's why we confess our sins to get back to our right. If going is just to say, "I was in church this morning". It was just a revolving door and we all walk out the same.
"If you are in a fiery trial, be advised that it is your faith that is on
trial. If you are to overcome the dilemma, it will not be by your feelings, but by your faith."
There use to be a time in my life where I was so bitter. You let me tell it, I had every reason to be angry but who was I to think that this world owed me something like I was the Creator. It seemed as if every road I turned down was the wrong way and it was because I wanted it my way. Kind of like Jonah when God took away the little piece of shade that he had and he got mad and questioned God like he had planted the seed for the tree to grow himself. Ha! I was something else. When I started looking into the mirror and actually started staring at myself. I realized the truth was hard to deal with and all the time he was sending threats my way to get me back on track. Who I had become was not the way my parents raised me. What I'm trying to say is, God was not saying much but he wasn't ignoring me either. There's a season for each of us but you have to come to grips with your season of isolation and drought to understand that there's a harvest ahead but you must be patient. I have days (not bad days) cause each day is a good day if you're in the land of the living. Be reminded as I've said before: Its not gonna always be like this. So buckle up and weather the storm because you are a rainbow of promise God has not forgotten. Be uplifted. Be inspired. www.BeUnbreakable.com
When the disciples asked Jesus why they couldn't cast the demon out of the child. He told
them, "cases like this require prayer." Now, I ask you do you have faith in the things you pray about? I loved this part of the scripture when the father of the child asked Jesus, "to do
something if he can" and Jesus responded, "If I can?" Its amazing how scripture can take you on different levels and make you think about the things you are doing in your life. I've always been
strong in writing out goals and making plans at God's will of course, to accomplish them. Faith & Prayer is a powerful combination when you truly believe what you're praying about. So, if
you're questioning yourself and wondering "IF YOU CAN?" Sure you can because with #FAITH anything is possible. Be Uplifted. Be Inspired. Be Unbreakable.
Sometimes in life we get to a place where we wonder what to do next. You feel stuck somewhere you don't want to be and you keep praying and it feels like your prayers are not being heard because nothing is happening. Could it be, that you've done something you shouldn't have done and God is waiting on you to acknowledge it so he can forgive you and move on? Some of us go about our every day lives working like ants, saving for the winter months. Not paying attention to the time that is passing us, loved ones dying, children becoming grown. Take a moment to breathe and acknowledge all that God has done for you and what he's done before, he will do again. Keep pushing ahead!
At the closing of my day, I always try to do a self check while in prayer. Life can be hard and overwhelming sometimes and can find ourselves being rude to someone in the mist of the moment. A quick apology and asking for forgiveness is always wise when you're trying to live a life pleasing to God. Evidence that the spirit of God is at work within you is love, joy, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control. Galatians 5:22-23. If these are not within you, its time for a self check and restoration. Be uplifted. Be inspired. Be Unbreakable.
When God gives you a business plan and becomes your business partner. The right door will always be
open. Take note that I said, "THE RIGHT DOOR" will be open. Be uplifted. Be inspired. Be Unbreakable.
You eat the best food and wear the finest clothes, but you let your flocks starve. You haven't taken care of the
weak nor tended the sick nor bounded up the broken bones nor gone looking for those who have wandered away and lost. Ezekiel 34:3-4
Why I was taken into the book of Ezekiel for my prayer and study this morning simply amazes me but I'm obedient and I gotta share this even if it steps on toes. I know in scripture where if 1 of 100 sheep went missing the shepherd left those 99 to go find that one sheep that had gotten lost. We live in a time where the buildings (churches) are full of empty souls every Sunday that come and give their percentages seeking refuge, help, encouragement and love and leave every Sunday wounded and hurt more than they were before they came and some never come back. The shepherds is not feeding their sheep souls properly because it's a revolving door, they go in the same and come out the same and yet our leaders say it's not their fault. Yet, their pockets are full and counting people like they are cattle to brag on, on how many people showed up to their church today. My question is, how many people lives did you save and change and have you looked over your flocked to see who's missing so you can go find them and bring them out of that dark place they have wandered off to? You have fed yourself but have left them to starve but my Lord God says in Ezekiel 34:11 that I will search and find my sheep. I will be like a shepherd looking for his flock and I will find them and rescue them from all the places they were scattered in that dark and cloudy day; So my encouragement for those of you, who still feel lost, though you go to the church every Sunday. Don't worry keep seeking God and he will find you. Where mankind won't look, God will. Be Uplifted. Be Inspired. Be Unbreakable.
It may be taking longer than expected but if he gave you the vision. It will come to past. Keep the faith. Have an unbreakable day!
phone is a hotline. I can listen to people and pray with them all day long but when its all said and done, only God has the answer. The only advice I can give you is scripture and help you
understand it with the holy spirit's help when you don't. Prayer does change things, you just got to take a number and wait to be called. Patience is a virtue. Be uplifted. Be inspired. Be
Don't worry, its just a detour..
I was wondering what encouragement to share with you all this month and then God whispered. He reminded me about a trip I took in early 2000. I was driving to Louisville, Kentucky and I got thrown off course. My GPS had me in one direction but the closed highway sign had me going in another. Isn't it amazing how your life gets off course sometimes? You make plans on the things you want to do but then God sends you on a detour. My most powerful moments and learning experiences happened on the detour. Yes, it takes a lot longer but you get to see things you never saw before and gain new insight that you wouldn't have experienced on your planned directions. I've learned to be more patient when going off course because no matter how many detours you get thrown in life. Eventually you arrive to your destination with more knowledge and wisdom than you had before. Stay Unbreakable!#beunbreakable #keeprising #nevergiveup
I made it to Florida 17 years ago with $3000 to my
name, a car that backed fired and turned off every 45 minutes. Two children and pregnant with a 3rd that I didn't know about until a month later. I wanted to start over, needed a new life. My old
life wasn't going so well. I refused to stay, so I left. Was the first 5 years of being a single mother hard? Heck yeah, it was! If anything bad could happen. You best to believe it happened to me back to back. Knowing God the way I do, I refused to back down
and every time I got knocked down. I got right back up. Did I almost give up? Yes, one time I did but God refused to let that happen and here I am today with many testimonies I wish I could share
with the world. No matter what goes on in your life. As long as you're breathing, know that there are better days ahead. Just keep moving! Be uplifted. Be Inspired. Be
Who am I?
I am the woman that stands in your image
I am the words that fall from your lips
I am the reason you look forward to sleep because your dreams have become much deeper, now that you're laying beside me
I am the right to your life
I am the light to your darkness
I am the cure to your sickness, your health is at it's greatest peak.
You feel stronger than Samson, when you are standing beside me
I am the music of your heartbeat
I am your strength when you feeling defeat
I am your joy when you are sad
I am the laughter of your smile
I am the reason your mind is at peace, because you understand that this love is truly meant to be.
I am the sunlight to your rainy day.
I am the fight for your life, when you feel the world is trying to take it away.
When they ask, Who am I?
I will stand silent in your glory.
Then they will come to realize, that it is God, that has foretold this love story..
Micah 6:8 declares what the Lord requires of man, that he do justice, practice
kindness and compassion each to his brother; I sometimes wonder if most people realize that kindness is a characteristic of true love. We shouldn't choose who we should be kind to because they
don't look like us or drive a certain car or live in a certain house. Kindness is an attribute of God. Which means you should treat ALL people with LOVE. You
can't shout, quote verses, sit in church every Sunday or lead people and you don't have kindness. Hidden motives and hipocrasy eventually comes out but most of all, God sees you. I can only pray
we all come together one day in true love. Be uplifted. Be inspired. Be Unbreakable.
Keep pushing and keep giving it all your effort and the vision that God gave you will happen. There is a season of patience you must endure and faith to believe in all that is to come. Just stay on the path of obedience that God has given you. You see many people and it looks like they are succeeding; but what it looks like on the outside. Doesn't necessarily mean they are winning on the inside. Don't change who you are to fit in, because it was never meant for you to fit in. Your time is coming, get ready!

These past weeks I've been talking about forgiveness. It is such a powerful word and action. God has been taking me to scriptures I've long forgotten and its something so poetic about them. I forgive daily, because God forgives me daily. There was a time where I wouldn't even stutter the word. My motto was, you hurt me and I will hurt you back. The only thing I accomplished from that, was more hurt. I had to learn to let go and let God; because I was tired of being in that dark valley. I'm glad he transformed it to a valley of hope. The light that glows within me now. I encourage you to put down that burden of hurt and pick up the cross of forgiveness. Be Uplifted. Be Inspired. Be Unbreakable.
Most would say, we live in a time where the truth is rarely heard and lies are
more easier to believe. For me, its rare to meet a kindred spirit. So, when I do, I'm fully aware of their presence. I don't easily call someone friend and I have to admit I don't easily trust any one. Life has taught me many things and putting my trust
in God is where I always succeed. So there, it rest. I know everyone has a need to belong and/or be apart of something but if you're not careful. You will end up lost, mislead, cheated and
deceived. Be careful of your surroundings and who you keep company with. The enemy will show up as a friend in your time of despair. Know who you are, stand in confidence and believe in the power
of YOU and God will always carry you through. Be uplifted. Be inspired. Be Unbreakable!

You know, I'm glad that God corrects me and reminds me of who I am and whose I
am when I stray away from the path. We sometimes get ahead of ourselves when great things start happening, doors began to open and we sometimes forget that it was God who gave us this
opportunity. So, who are we to get the big head and become prideful. That is the beginning of your downfall. Remain humble at all times because at any time, those who turn from God may be
successful for a moment, but then sudden disaster comes. I welcome the storm when I'm wrong. I need it to remind me to
lean fully on God, so I can remain under his promises and his blessings. Be uplifted. Be inspired. Be Unbreakable.
Its amazing the way God works. Truly amazing! I was given some good news and some bad news today but anybody that truly knows me and its only a few. Knows that bad news is only fuel to my fire. So, let me step right over that and get to this. I was in prayer and in scripture this evening and I was led to this. "Darkness is no obstacle to him." So, let me say this in faith. BAD NEWS IS NO OBSTACLE TO ME. Next......
Its OK, to not be OK on some
days. Its a part of life. Stop trying to hide your hurt and deal with it openly. When I say openly, I mean with yourself or with someone you truly trust that understands or even with a stranger.
You would be amazed at how a complete stranger can give you solace. I wish you laughter on your saddest days and hope on your darkest nights. Be uplifted. Be inspired. Be
He said that out of all of the gifts, LOVE was the greatest and any one who lives with love for all is living with God and God is living with him. That's just
was reading in scripture this evening. Gotta give God his time every day. So, there use to be a time that I thought. As long as I don't think about my sins, God wouldn't know about it. Ha!
Foolish me, thinking I could fool God. When I started seeking him out, I layed every thing out on the table. I wanted him to see my nakedness, everything that I was trying to cover up. I wanted
him to love me and forgive
me. Not knowing that he already loved me, he just was waiting on me to recognize my faults and ask for forgiveness. The tears that fell and the load of life being lifted off me was rejuvenating.
I felt unworthy but complete for the first time in my life. I still have plenty of sins, but I'm so glad I'm able to talk to God and tell him all about them and to ask for help in overcoming
them. Its never too late to reach out to him. I encourage you to try him for yourself and no matter how hard the change may be. It is truly worth it down the road. Be uplifted. Be inspired. Be
Don't limit your blessings by limiting your faith. - Unbreakable
In spite of the hurt, LOVE. In spite of hatred, LOVE. In spite of judgment, LOVE. In spite of deception, LOVE. In spite of any injustice someone does to you, LOVE. Don't let the world take away your power. The greatest gift of all is LOVE.
You begin this life with a purpose. So you journey trying to find who you are and the outcome of every situation is a reflection of the person you are becoming, spiritually (manifestation). It all begins with your walk and your conversations with God. The way you see the world by knowing that ‘’he who loves you, will never forsake you.’’ Your soul becomes entangled by temptations in life and knowing that this time. You got to get it right. His word Manifests within you, he writes it on the wall of your heart and you undyingly know that he and you will never be apart. I believe that once he whispers in your ear. No matter what you do, where you go or who u with, there’s always this fear. For God knows he has put you here, to serve his purpose, to be his vessel. For incarnation of his revelation has begun its manifestation.
You wake up each morning, not knowing what the day will bring. You pray to God to allow you to conquer whatever may come your way. You battle within, because something is always after you. You understand that in this world, suffering is just apart of the puzzle. You are a natural born leader, because that’s what he is preparing you for (manifestation). Your path is sometimes rocky, but you keep going, because you know the result is becoming the person you are meant to be. You hold on because God leads you and he guides you in a way that no man could possibly understand or even embrace. You know that at the end of day, you will eventually find your way. You’re becoming a soldier in God’s army of infinite love, peace and eternal salvation. MANIFESTATION……
Your Sunday Is Coming
I know it looks like a Friday right now. Your heart is broken, you've lost your best friend, your job is letting you go, too many bills due, the sun is not shining, everybody is telling you NO. You've been lied on, cheated on, mistreated and you just can't see your way out. You go to sleep and wake up to Saturday and there's still no change. What's the use...... but let me tell you about Sunday. If you would just hold on, Sunday is coming. Everything is changing, your healing is on its way, that financial break through is lined up and waiting. Your lost has been replaced with a gain. There won't be tears of sadness, there will be tears of joy. See, your Sunday was already set up. Your Sunday was pre-ordained. God said, I need you to wait on me. I need you to stand in your faith, I need you to believe because my son is coming. Jesus is rising! So, make no mistake I know what it looks like now but if you would look a little harder, there are clear skies on the horizon.
I WAS THERE
I was standing in line waiting to see God. When I got to the gate I told him my name.
He knew who I was, so of course I was shame. He said I know who you are, no need to speak. Let me tell you about yourself and all of your deeds.
I saw what you did that day on the streets. When no one was looking you fed those in need.
I remember that night you cried out to me. You thought I wasn’t there, but I rocked you to sleep.
You told me one day when you was driving down the street. You said you could never repay me but there was no need.
I was with you that day; you thought you were going to die. I shielded and protected you. That’s why your car didn’t collide.
Remember when the doctors said you wouldn’t make it to your 1st birthday, but I had purpose for you and here you are today.
I’m sorry that guy broke your heart the way he did, but I needed you to give birth to something and pain was the only way in.
There’s not a day you’ve been here that I wasn’t there. I know a lot of things happened that seemed unfair.
I just want you to know I’ve always been there with you. Even with the mistakes you’ve made and you thought I was through.
So, regardless of all the good you’ve done, along with your sinning. Unbreakable was your beginning and also your ending.
Now, here you stand before me on this judgment day. I’m welcoming you home and I’m proud you found your way.
He Answered Me
I was in the midst of a crowd one day and sadness overcame my life.
I didn’t know what to say or do so I sat down and wondered why?
I pondered on different thoughts and the reason this could be.
Then suddenly I felt someone sit down beside me
He looked me in my eyes as tears began to form.
He said he knew what was happening to me and said it was just a storm.
He told me in his life he had a lot of tribulations
But his father stood beside him to help him through every situation
He understood my sadness and said it would go away
He said just like the sad days, joy would take its place
There was something about this man
That gave me a happy feeling
All of the sudden the sadness like a wound starting healing
I wanted to ask him on how he knew so much
But when I turned to look at him he was gone without a single touch.
Who could this man be, that told me about my life.
He knew just what to say to me and said everything would be alright.
He told me I was never alone and that I would never be
He said the times I thought I was in darkness
A light was shining over me
He answered all my questions and I didn’t even ask
He told me everything that was going to happen as the
storm began to pass.
Now I sit and think about that day
As I turn to read my bible.
It spoke about a man name Jesus then things began to unravel
See Jesus was a man, whom all our sins he bear
And he prayed for people like me whenever I was in despair.
The man who was talking to me that day was Jesus Christ indeed.
It was the greatest feeling to know he sat beside me.
So when you feeling down and out.
Thinking no one else is there.
He’ll come sit beside you and let you know he’ll always care.
I AM YOU
When you see me, don't just look at my dark brown complexion.
You see a woman of essence, beauty and reflection.
Don't just judge me from the outside, the tone of my skin.
Because I carry something deeper. A beauty within.
I share the spirit of different women. Ages, classes and race.
I am the mirror you look at, a reflection of your face.
I am the joy that you feel and sometimes sorrow and heartache.
I am the morning dew that falls.
The tear drops that leave scars on your face.
I am the beauty of it all, I carry every race.
I have strength within me. I dress up to everyday.
So when you see me walking.
Please don't go the other way.
Guess what? I am you.
Your reflection every day...
Me, Myself & I
Me, myself and I is a story I can tell so neatly. With emotions being torn, life being hectic, at night there is no sleeping.
You ask is it me, well I have to take the blame for all this distress?
It's my choices I make, so I know it's something within me that's not at my best.
I write down my thoughts, for all things that has happened within this life.
I can't keep storing them in my mind, but it's slowly running out of space.
Ask me if I'm broken, I wont tell you a lie. But I got a healing within me that's helping with my cry.
I'm constantly alone thinking to make things fit. I say it's me, myself and I thats constantly on a trip.
I reach out to others to help me learn my way.
But i realize this is a journey, that only I can take.
I'm learning in this life you can't trust everybody's feeling.
But I pray to a God who says my life is much more than revealing.
Every hurt, pain and disappointment. Has put me in a better place.
I feel God's love surrounds me and his amazing grace.
So, I will get past this point in life and be thankful for all I been given. It's just me, myself and I and a world that's mine for the living.
I’ve been unbreakable to the point that the woman that I am now, should have been the woman that I was yesterday.
But I allowed life to feed me circumstances that I had control of, but didn’t want to accept because I always felt like I wasn’t good enough.
Not feeling good enough!
I didn’t realize my worth.
So I allowed people to take away the very essence of a spirit of a girl who’s laugh was true, who’s love was deep, who life was revealing.
Had to get it back!
So, I reached out to God who loved me deeply, who forgave me truly, and who held me quietly as I cried internal tears that silently erupted.
He healed me completely and my broken pieces became whole and then he spoke a spirit of unbreakable within me.
I AM UNBREAKABLE!
One night I was praying to you
And I had so much to say
So many questions to ask
About life in this world today
So I thought I would write you a letter
It was easier for me to do
So I wrote down every thought
About life and what I should choose
I began with “Dear Jesus,”
To whom I admire so much
A man who endured so much pain
And yet healed with a single touch
I pray I will meet you someday
If I could only walk the righteous road
“Dear Jesus” it is so hard
In a world that is so cold
What will I have to do
I know I could never take your place
All the pain that you went through
Many centuries ago today
I’ll just keep praying to you
Every night before I sleep
Hopefully one day
I’ll be the way you chose me to be
My letter could never come to an end
Until life itself cease on day
“Dear Jesus” I love you
These words are what I pray
30 Days of Reflection
I’m struggling trying to find my way in each day as a memory of time past. I’m calling it 30 days of reflection, because time has become my path.
I journey down this road. Not knowing the things that I will see. My past, my present and my future, is becoming a reality.
Things are constantly changing and I’m trying to keep up with the times. My mind is trying to embrace so much, while I feel my heart is dying.
I sit back and I think of all the mistakes I’ve made and I also think of my accomplishments.
I figure that will make up for all the bad things
I’ve constantly tried to forget.
It’s becoming a challenge to face each day, as I rise hoping to have no memory of past pain.
As soon as reality kicks in, the emotion is still the same.
They say that time heals all wounds, but time has no love for me. I’ve been waiting for time to heal, but the wound, cease to stop bleeding. Each day I’m becoming stronger as these 30 days are ending at last. The reflections of my life, future, present and past………
Reflection of My Soul
My heart is at a constant battle, because of the pain that is still within.
I’m fighting to hold on to a truth, but truth has not been my friend.
To love is not an easy task, as many make it to be.
I want to find a peaceful ground. Though hurt won’t let it be.
I pray for someone who knows, that in life you take your chances.
Can it be possible in this life; I’ve used up all my romances?
I look into a mirror and I see so much that I hold.
I’m waiting for someone, who is a reflection of my soul……
