  • Les prophètes n’attendent pas uniquement que l’on viennent les consulter. Ils apparaissent, sans avoir été demandés ou désirés, et livrent la parole de Dieu. Dieu interpelle, au peuple maintenant de répondre. 
On n’apprécie pas toujours à sa juste valeur ce que l’on a; mais il suffit de le perdre pour en réaliser la valeur ou l’importance.
Le peuple aime entendre des paroles de bonheur, encourageantes, mais n’est pas toujours prêt à entendre celles qui redressent ou de malheur.
Peu importe la nature du message, cela démontre que Dieu s’intéresse au peuple.
Son silence par contre fait éprouver l’indifférence...
Ex: deux partenaires peuvent s’aimer ou se disputer, mais ce qui crée une atmosphère insupportable, c’est quand les deux vivent côte à côte en s’ignorant, sans se parler.
Les prophètes connaissent le rejet, mais chaque communauté croyante et vivante a besoin d’eux car Dieu les aime tellement qu’Il les suscite au milieu d’eux.
Luc4.24
La liberté du prophète fait peur, mais entouré par des sages, la communauté est plus à même de recevoir les instructions, les corrections, les ajustements et proclamations qui viennent directement du cœur du Père.
Rendons grâce que les 5 ministères puissent se révéler au milieu de nous.

  • Some of us have been through so much... We may have reached a point where we are just hopeless- we feel almost like we are too broken for God to put us back together. This feeling may have derived from past relationships, toxic childhoods, others opinions of us and the list goes on...

In the next couple posts, I want to share what the Word of God says about you. Turn your notifications on and let's get ready to break some cycles. We must live our best lives- a life of FREEDOM and JOY in Christ!💙

You are not too broken. Be ready to get rid of these lies you've been dwelling on for too long.

  • Yay! I got the footers taken care of under the soaking tub! I had them beefed up as the whole thing looked a bit sketchy to me. I will be taking stone veneer up this weekend to cover the footers so they match the stone on the house. Cosmetic work is always easy, but it’s investment in  foundation work that helps me sleep better at night.  This is true in both construction and in my personal life.  Am I consumed with how my life looks to others or how I personally look, or am I concerned  with deeper matters? Am I using the gifts I am given? Where am I putting my trust? Am I living an authentic life presenting myself as the person I say I am? 
Cosmetics are easy. Foundations are not. Yet without strong foundations all that we have created will crumble. Today I build my foundation on the rock which is my Lord. All else is sinking sand. He is the one I am concerned with. He is the one I long to please not man. He is the one whose voice at the end of life I want to hear say “ well done my good and faithful servant.” He is my Rock and my foundation. Have you lost your way? Overwhelmed and feeling helpless? Exhausted and uninspired? Book your stay at my paradise. Cleanse yourself and start building a new foundation. The journey is yours.  @healingwaterfallsva #christianjourney #faith #buildingfoundations #buildingstrongfoundations #buildingfoundation #changeispossible #emotionalhealth #emotionalhealing #recreateme #selfknowledge #knowledgeofself #selfcare #selflove

  • Sometimes being a Christian can be hard. We are human after all and our thoughts and emotions can naturally be downright awful. Praise God we don't have to do this alone! We can't do it in our own power. But we have direct access to unlimited power!

  • Did you catch me in the Clean & Fit Society this morning?? .
.

I went on a little rant 🤣 so if you want to catch it make sure to click the link in bio! 🙌🏽💁🏻‍♀️
.
.
Are you constantly fed up with not getting to a certain level in life? .
.
Do you find yourself always backsliding in sobriety? Always overindulging and asking yourself WHY nothing is changing? 🤔 .
.
My question to you is, what are you doing DIFFERENT? .
.
If your not willing to be uncomfortable or willing to actually do the work it takes, then you have to stop complaining. #toughlove but really. .
.
It comes down to looking in the mirror and asking yourself how bad do you really want it!? .
.
You can fight👊🏽 for what you want or fight against what you DON’T want. See how I switched that perspective? 😊 .
.
What can you do today to start making that shift you want? Comment below, let’s hold each other accountable 🙃

  • Found time to do this with friends this weekend. Friends who love my children and I as much as they love theirs. Friends who lift all our hurting hearts up and make us laugh. Laughter is such great medicine! Friends who we have chosen to call family cause our definition of family has changed. 
When life is hard and everything around that has been permanent changes and we start focusing on the past and what went wrong or on the future and how that will look we can become overwhelmed to the point of anxiety taking us hostage. Just remember to BREATHE. Stay in the moment and connect with your breath. Life only becomes overwhelming if you let it. The choice is yours.  If this weekend taught me any lessons it is that God has got this. My phone was in salt water and sand for 12 hours. I considered it gone. If someone had not told me how shallow the water was (waist deep) off the end of a long pier I would not have even bothered to look. How many time do we miss the blessing by not taking the time to look? Happy Monday everyone. May you find God in the details today🙏🏻❤️🔥 #breath #faith #hope #change

  • Do you want to know the secret behind living an abundant, thriving life? A solid relationship with God.

Giving Him the first moments of your day can totally transform each day for the better. Placing your schedule in His hand and asking Him to arrange things according to His perfect will will help you conquer each day,  o matter how crazy it can be. You will be blessed with peace that passes all understanding and strength to face anything.

  • Another sunset from the Outer Banks. Phone is still working but it can still never capture the beauty that is seen with the eye. This picture pales in comparison to what I actually saw. 
Taking time to breathe and look and see a new  place. It has been 20 years or so since I have been here. Being near the ocean is always like being around an old friend. At he age of 18 I jumped on a 26 ft sailboat and sailed across the ocean with 2 strangers. I feel I became intimate with the Atlantic at that time of my life. A life of being at the coast has continued to nurture that. The ocean like God always inspires and yet humbles me. 
What inspires you? I would love to know. If you are feeling tired and uninspired get out and get away! The Falls is a great place to start your journey. Book your stay. Come empty and leave full.

  • As we watch the news everyday we can see the moral decay that is plaguing our world. It can become down right disheartening as we see how inhumanely others treat their fellow man and creatures. 
Our own experiences in our daily lives can suck all hope out of us as well of we let it. For some troubles seem to be an every day occurrence. 
But praise God it is all TEMPORARY! We can take heart by remembering that God is soon to return and make right every wrong. There will be no more death, crime, hatred, injustice, sickness, or pain! Pray that we meet Him in peace on that glorious day and draw strength from this promise on the hard days.

  • The season of green has returned! Project Tahiti is in full swing as my paradise has returned from months of slumber.  I am reminded of life after death. Of seasons of nothing and seasons of abundance. How nature mimics my life and what’s going on. Just the other night there was a hard situation that was consuming my thought when out of the blue the woman who sold me the Falls house after her mother passed got in touch with me. God was taking my eyes off my tough situation saying “look over here I want your eyes on the blessing of this person reaching out not on the person over there unconcerned with you.” I literally was crying the next morning as I saw the lesson from the day before. Many times I don’t see the message but I know something major has happened. Amanda reaching out to me telling me her mother would be happy at how I am taking care of the place was a blessing, but the bigger picture was “look at what you have not what you don’t.” Nice that I could see it and it gave me great peace. It also reminded me of Gods activity in my life always present always speaking in the whispers. Always taking care of me and concerned for me. 
I can not be at the Falls myself as it is quite booked, but I need to step away and breathe. Life has me way too busy and I don’t want to be. Sometimes I just don’t know how to stop the train. For all you who feel the same book your stay at my place. It will change your perspective I promise. @healingwaterfallsva #thebattleisreal #fightthegoodfight #slowdown #emotionalhealth #faith #healingtheheart #seasons #changeispossible #christianjourney

  • Have you ever broke down in tears when encountered by the Holy Sprit? Even amongst Christians of today, I hear this too often: “I (understand GOD “intellectually”)hate being emotional (with added facial expressions to affirm that they are most rational beings) and just can’t stand emotional people” 
Jesus Christ was a weeping savior; full of emotions and wept with compassion for His people. In  Psalms and many more books in the bible, no passage expresses“put-togetherness of mankind” but full of emotions waiting in His Hope. 
No shame in Holy Encounter... If you see someone at church and have a tissue handy, perhaps pass one down the pew? 😂 Holy Spirit moves heart of people during sermons, hymns, testimonies of others and sometimes just looking at the cross in gratitude cries being thankful to find glimpse of His presence (are You even here, Lord?? If not, I have no business here... why is this congregation making the reverends preach on giving when they are the proud “social elites and the top upper crust”?!) Actually, something isn’t going right when not one single soul cries....I love seeing saints share their encounter with oppressed and lonely stranger who were disconnected from their communities and together praying. May your heart meet God without worrying about what others would wonder why your heart has become softened to respond to His voice. I guess, it’s cultural expectation of Men... Men can cry, too. Will pass down tissue without a judgement. Let GO and Let GOD. Okay... not everyone will be speaking in tongues like the Paul’s days kind of “charismatic” which isn’t exactly an everyday scene for today’s churches... but Who holds tears when hearing the ‘Amazing Grace’? And overwhelmed by His Grace? 🙋🏻‍♀️ Photo Credit: @monsieur_arefin

  • Une des choses que j'aime le plus dans la vie de l'église est le baptême. En effet, c'est le dépôt du sceau d'une nouvelle vie. Ici, un de nos chers frère (Pasteur Gédéon en jaune) baptisant les nouveaux chrétiens dans la région de Vogan, au Togo. Aux yeux de mon cœur, le baptême a toujours été comme le jour d'un mariage, l'acte d'une alliance nouvelle, le passage de la mort à la vie. C'est une grâce que de pouvoir participer à cette grande journée dans la vie d'une âme. Êtes-vous baptisé(e) ?

  • How does the story of Ruth relate to our lives now?

We too have to make a decision to turn our backs on our old lives and start a new journey. What we’ve left behind will become like garbage to us when we get our eyes opened to the blessing that comes from following Jesus out of a love for Him.

We too need to seek the relationship that we know will be of eternal benefit. A relationship with God, who has all power on heaven and earth, and can share that power with us. He is our Friend and Helper to the extent that we entrust Him, from the biggest trials of life, to the smallest daily matters.

We too will meet trials as we go this way. Ours won’t necessarily be outward trials such as hunger and poverty, but we have to fight the good fight of faith in order to do God’s will. It is through these trials, which Peter describes as “being tested by fire,” that our faith becomes genuine and precious.

This is my “satan tried me today & I almost got caught up in his web” face. If you are reading this, I’m going to keep it together I promise, because God will get all the glory this year. I know the devil only comes for those he’s seen God’s hands place blessings behind closed doors for (satan knows you are 5 feet away 🤭) •
When the devil sees blessings coming along, He tries to get you down so that you miss the blessing and can’t stay focused on how to receive it when it comes. I can say for myself, I have a nice relaxing vacation coming up in less than a week (btw: I’m about to act up on IG 😂😭🤦🏾‍♀️) that the devil keep trying to stop me from being able to prepare for (I have to get my consultant work squared off & narrow down logistics for upcoming TFF Events & Publication). Somehow the HDIC (Head-demon-In-charge) wont let up on distracting & overcrowding my thoughts!
•
In order to stay in the “grind zone” I peep what is stopping me. Specifically right now the frogs that like to pop up after it rains or the bunnies that run wild at night like rats 😩! All jokes aside, my emotions from things I can’t control, wanting to cook because I work 10inches from my kitchen or even coming across news of the hateful acts/crimes I see happening in the community really takes my mind away from the things on my priority list. •
I said that to say, not only will satan try & stop you, but even YOU can stop yourself by being your own personal devil(food and grabbing a bite to eat is such a distraction as an entrepreneur, so I know it be me stopping me😂). Stop the thoughts and bad habits that lead to being unproductive by speaking otherwise into your life (speak focus, be precise about 1 thing you will get done in 24 hours) & discipline your mind to keep grinding toward the end goal or working on the plan! • Sn: Turn thoughts into fruit that others can snag a seed from & plant in their own garden•

    This is my “satan tried me today & I almost got caught up in his web” face. If you are reading this, I’m going to keep it together I promise, because God will get all the glory this year.

  • If nothing else gives you motivation to press on, know that someone is actually dependent on you reaching your goals.

  • Deux des choses les plus simples au monde sont celles-ci : l'évangile de Christ est totalement simple, si simple que les plus érudits ont parfois du mal à le saisir. DIEU EST AMOUR (Jean 3.16) ; et Jésus nous permet, par son simple amour, de devenir les fils et filles adoptifs de Dieu, ce qui nous permet de l'appeler "Père, mon cher père". Ce n'est pas le mot Père (intimidant) mais simplement Papa comme une proximité, une intimité. Et c'est dans cette totale simplicité que nous aimons partager la Parole, son amour et son Esprit. La simplicité amène la profondeur, la guérison, la puissance, la transformation, la restauration.⁣⠀

  • To the brothers who had felt so much jealousy toward Joseph that they sold him into slavery, Joseph extends GRACE. My mom always says that life takes so many unexpected turns that we never know who we will one day need help from. Joseph’s story reminds me of that. From being sold into slavery to becoming ruler of Egypt and Pharaoh’s right hand man, Joseph came a long way. His brothers did too. When they had  the upper hand while they were selling Joseph into slavery, I bet you they never thought they would be bowing at his feet seeking food one day. But life takes us to unforeseen places; it puts us in unimaginable circumstances that humble us. And yet, in reading this passage in Genesis, I find that the greatest lesson is not so much that we can be humbled at any moment. While we definitely find that lesson in there, the entire scene culminates in two great themes: grace and forgiveness. Even though Joseph had every right to be angry at his brothers, rather than withhold resources from them, Joseph instead offers them forgiveness. The most awe inspiring part is that instead of reproaching them for all the trials he endured in Egypt, Joseph tells them that they are not responsible for his fate and life in Egypt; he says God  had placed Him there (Gen. 45:8). WOW! Joseph was so aware of God’s greater workings, that regardless of the years of suffering he endured because of his brothers’ actions, he knew God was working it out for good. The grace he freely extends to his brothers who had wronged him and the forgiveness that seems to come so naturally is admirable. But more than that, it’s an image of the grace and forgiveness Jesus offers us. In Jesus, there is no condemnation for our sins. Where we are guilty, God’s grace is enough. It’s a poignant reminder that if Christ can forgive my most horrid of sins, how, then, can I not forgive those who hurt me. When we really sit down and think about all that God has forgiven us for, forgiveness becomes much easier, just like for Joseph.
