The Epiphany

I had an epiphany Resurrection Sunday weekend that had me challenged; that MONDAY I woke up with a bad taste in my mouth. 

A taste where I knew I was utterly alone; so alone IN THIS WORLD, I was ready to go back to Milwaukee and say the hell with this JOURNEY STUFF, I'M SAYING NO. 

But in my spirit, I couldn't say no. I couldn't turn around and go back. On my social media, one of the first things I read was about going to a place that made no sense, getting off of social media and focusing on God, and, basically, sitting in my yes. My yes is so important to others, not to me, because I could die today, and in dying someone will have to go over my life and see what I have done to serve God. 

The Epiphany 

Yes, I thought of myself as a failure. I had spoken it over my life many times in that past week. I had even gotten to the train station and thought about getting back on the bus and going to my ex's house and just applying for a job. I was ready to go to HELL for disobedience, BUT THE EPIPHANY held me back. It shook me up and brought me to my senses. 

I HAD NO CHOICE, but to stay on the path already lain out for me no matter what the struggle is or was; WHEN YOU ARE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT a YES is a YES. 

Consider the times in your life when you had an epiphany; what did you do? Go against the grain or with it?

Fast Cars and Slow Sex: Why slow sex?

Okay now we're at the day the LORD has made let us rejoice and be glad in it!

SEX, LIES, VIDEOTAPE

The lesson isn't in SLOW SEX..but why is it SEX?

See, I am a minister of the Gospel. (Remember?)
I am one that is always going to tell you what the word says.

When I started this three day series (today is the 3rd day), I shared with you that the lesson was in the title.

SEX...is not what it should be call between A MARRIED MAN AND A WOMAN.

YOU BETTER MAKE LOVE AND MAKE IT FAST OR SLOW.
Your house, your bed, your marriage, is YOUR BUSINESS, but it's not sex. When you become intimate with your husband you are sharing something SPIRITUAL with this man you love. You are exchanging touches, kisses, bodily fluids (be real, not a prude), and you are looking into the eyes of your husband and LOVING ON HIM.
It's LOVE. There is no if ands or buts about it.

What does this have to do with priorties?
If you go to bed with the intent of just having SEX, you already have a planned attack on your spouse and your marriage. Your proiorty is to get it done; slow or not.

Making love is slow. Sex is fast and unemtional.

Fast Cars and Slow sex......change your priorties and LIVE.

Fast Cars and Slow Sex: Why Fast Cars?

They tell us patience is a virtue, but I say if you desire patience, and wait, you will still be going too fast. It is something that is cultivated through time, and experience. You can't buy patience.

SO


Why fast cars?


Because we like them.
We like to feel in control.
We like the exhiliration they bring when our foot is on the gas, hands on the gear shift and mind on the road. The lesson here isn't about the fast cars, but what it puts in us as we drive.

Is our mind on the road? What are you thinking about when speeding through the streets of your town, traveling the country side, or just trying to get to work?

Ladies, I would drive so fast, when I got out the car I needed a cigarette. (I don't smoke, but flow with me here).

The lesson here is the recklessness of fast cars is the results of lost control in our lives. We drive fast not to get to the destination but to take CONTROL OF GETTING TO THE DESTINATION.
I would step out of the car with my 4 inch heels on, purse, briefcase, and sache' myself into my office, smiling at everyone, and, oh yes, don't forget the caffeine in my hand.

Why fast cars? Because they aren't fast cars. They are driven by drivers that don't have control of their lives. NO, I"m not talking about those that drive fast occasionally for the invigorating ride around the speedway, or beach parking lot; I'm talking about the regular Jane Doe that has her priorties MIXED UP.

Ready for the SEX LESSON? See you tomorrow.

Fast Cars and Slow Sex

I am a fan of the Fast and Furious franchise; not because I like fast cars but because I drive fast.
I own and drive, a full size conversion van. This van is big enough for me to keep people at arms length, I see over most other vehicles and when traveling no one knows WHO IS IN THE VAN WITH ME.

But you didn't come here for that: 

FAST CARS AND SLOW SEX: OUR PRIORTIES ARE MIXED UP. 


Ladies (and some men) what exactly are your priorties? What do you want out of life? Do you want the sports car that goes from zero to 80 in a mili-second or slow love that takes you to higher hieghts behind closed doors?

I'm sorry, have you ever asked yourself that question? Try it.
No, I will never say FLIP THE SCRIPT. What I will say is look at your ENTIRE LIFE and tell me where FAST CARS AND SLOW SEX comes in and I will tell you the most important lesson today is in the title. Caught on yet?

No?
Still thinking?
Wanting to hear some raunchy lies watch some explicit video?
Get your mind out of the gutter and come back tomorrow....because I believe you've MISSED THE LESSON.

Smart, Saved & Sexy: The day Abstinence and Celibacy Met UP


Abstinence meaning: 
ab·sti·nence
ˈabstənəns/Submit
noun
the fact or practice of restraining oneself from indulging in something,

Celibacy meaning: 
cel·i·ba·cy
ˈseləbəsē/Submit
noun
the state of abstaining from marriage and sexual relations.

In may of 2012 I enjoyed my last intimate act with the person I said 'I Do' to; not only to him but to anyone. I decided at that point because our lives as husband and wife were on a downward spiral letting go sexually was the start of letting go mentally and spiritually. He didn't notice. God had. 
Abstinence and Celibacy have two different meanings but, depending on your life, help with one thing: being prepared for what God has for you(us) in the long run which is our end result. 

In the midst of this, I share with you TODAY the realities of both from the perspective of a single woman. When I made the decision in 2012, I did so in order to see what my then husband would say or do, because he did nothing it was easy for me to understand and see my lot in life as a woman chosen for ministry and a higher calling. I was able to see and hear what God was saying to me and the assignment at hand. You do realize four years ago I made this spiritual pact. I anxiously await my future king, but I serve God first while waiting.

Today Abstinence and Celibacy have met up. I am sharing this with you because the choices we all must make in our singleness is vital to the doors that must remain closed until our God ordained husbands show up. Doors that must remain intact until God sees fit. This is why I serve and this is why I stay in the position of prayer. 

Ladies your sexuality and sensuality is in held by you in the understanding of WHOM GOD IS AS YOUR FATHER. A father will not put you in a place where you will succumb to temptation, So you have to make the choice to live according the word given us. Your temple, and your call. LINE IT UP WITH THE WORD OF GOD. 

1 Corinthians 6:18-19
1 Corinthians 7: 32-40
1 Corinthians 7:2
Romans 10:17

It is my hope that you are encouraged to do what is necessary in keeping yourself pure until the time the Lord says different.

Who are you as a Woman?

As women, we are always challenged in understanding where we are to understand whom we are; I ask you today to put yourself on the other side of this question and get the answer. 



WHO ARE YOU AS A WOMAN?


In my B.A.D. Queens of the Round-Table group, I continuously ask the women what they bring to the table? The table of business? The family table? or even ministry..what do YOU bring to the table? 

What do you think about yourself that allows you to be EVERY WOMAN in and around your life? 

I watched Unsung Hollywood with a special on Meagan Good and I was intrigued by her ups and downs in life. I was especially intrigued by her recent marriage to Minister Devon Franklin. Not that he's a minister, but, from her story, she finally received her blessed relationship. 

Nonetheless, the questions isn't to determine your lack of self worth or how much you value you; it is to take inventory of what you think. 

Make a list of your trials and triumphs. 
In that list what are you really proud of FIRST, then make a list of the things you can deal without. 
Each list makes you whom you are however good or bad it is; don't take anything for granted. 

When you look at what you don't like, ask yourself what was going on in your life causing the negative outcome. If things have changed make note of what you did that caused the positive change; if it has not changed ask yourself what do you need deliverance from. 

Who you are is very important to your future as well as those around you! Make note. Get help (deliverance) and move forward!!

Smart, Saved and Sexy Intiative

What exactly is an initiative? 

in·i·ti·a·tive
noun
  1. 1.
    the ability to assess and initiate things independently
  2. 2. the power or opportunity to act or take charge before others do.


This is what we're doing at B.A.D Queens of the Round-Table; we are taking action and putting work in to change the mindsets of the women around the world. We are determined to build B.A.D. Queens by helping them see the inside of their lives compared to the outside the world seems to complain about.

The point in the initiative is to establish an ongoing community of encouraging women at a level that isn't as HIGH UP, yes HIGH UP, as the B.A.D. QUEENS of the Round-Table. The Queens at the table are already in the mindset of I have to keep going, I have to do what God says, there isn't anything I can't do and I'm doing it with the help of the other queens.

So how smart, sexy and saved are you to move into this part of the Royal Dining room? How smart, sexy and saved are you to know that no matter your body type, or size, you are the epitome of that next level woman?


There are two levels to the initiative that we want you to consider:


1. Donation of any amount to participate in teleconference calls starting July 12th, 2016 also includes the Triple S report. 


OR

2. Donation of any amount OVER $15 includes the Smart, Sexy, & Save T-shirt, teleconference, Triple S. Report and name included on the B.A.D Queens site as a supporter.

I'm Naked!

This morning I wokeup thinking about my new book Prophetic Patterns: Charles and Jasmine, and had to repent for the thoughts I had in my head. You see, I'm writing love scenes throughout the book between a married couple that the super saved folks seem to forget. It was so intense, I felt lustful at my thoughts; hence having to repent.

While getting ready, I thought about why I had those lustful thoughts and were they actually lustful? It dropped in my spirit that after all this time of being abstinent, I still didn't love my body. I did't love me.

In my shower I cried out to God to help me and after, I started to exercise. Naked. I started exercising naked. It isn't that I hate my weight, it was me recognizing if I can do jumping jacks with, wall push ups or squats, while naked, I could see every flaw and accept it. I looked in the mirror and laughed saying:


I'M NAKED!



About a year ago, I did a series on Beauty is Spirit Deep. The purpose was to allow women to realize their beauty starts from within. I understood what was so necessary in that message from my own issues, that sometimes I have to tackle today. You're probably saying how does that have to do with the thoughts I had when referring to my book? It means that after four years, a great divorce, success in building a business and ministry, I still have to remind my self about my beauty. My being smart, saved and sexy is a mindset not a body thing. It is an inner body experience. Accepting who you are naked is accepting who you are PERIOD! 



 Over the next few days, I will be releasing the SMART, SAVED, AND SEXY initiative that is being birthed through the B.AD. Queens of the Round-Table Networking Group. 

Here are a few things I want you to run with while we get ready for this new initiative: 

  • You are fearfully and wonderfully made. (Ps. 139:14)
  • You are blessed by GOD to accomplish all tasks despite your flaws. 
  • The imperfections on your body should not be in your mind or spirit. ( 1 Sam. 16:7) 
  • Look at yourself naked: point out the flaws without flinching and love on those flaws. 

God bless you!
