Honoring Your Parents


photo Do you want to live a LONG TIME? In Exodus 20:12 it says "Honor your father and your mother, so that YOU may live LONG in this land." I don't care who your parents are...none of us showed up on this planet by accident. God's sovereignty has chosen the time/place you were going to live & who your parents would be. We Honor & Respect them...not because they are perfect, but because God is perfect. Do NOT live with distance, unforgiveness or taking them for granted because then you are putting yourself in the position of being God. This is the FIRST commandment attached with a PROMISE & neglecting it is doing YOU a disservice.

If we reject our parents, we are rejecting God’s perfect will for our life. To honor our parents is to respect them...despite ALL of us being flawed individuals as well. If you have resentment ...Read More>>

Inner Beauty


ZZZZZBeauty I'm all for improving our Exterior to look our best (Chapter2 of my book talks about it), but NOT when you are more focused on it than growing internally. What good is it to have the best makeup, fashion clothes & right hairstyle (I dont qualify here) if your INSIDE is carrying a VOID? You can fool the "average Joe", but God knows your passion for Him is dying as you continue down your self-sufficient slippery path of non-vibrancy.

1) God deposited in you plans, purposes & gifts to be used for His Glory which will also make you "COME ALIVE" inside. When your "looks" determine your worth...you've missed the powerful essence of CHARACTER. Change your MIRROR by focusing on INTERNAL self-worth that comes from God instead of people. Someone's OPINION of you does not need to be your REALITY.

1) When you do this...you can wear a used Goodwill outfit if need be & still shine like a ...Read More>>

Teen Parenting Guidelines


 

 ZZZZTeens2When it comes to TEENS or young adults...lots of wisdom, patience & love is required.  I've learned a few things from my own parenting personal experience that I will like to share with you.  I pray it becomes very helpful to you as you do your BEST in your parenting role: 

1) Love your son or daughter unconditionally. Lots-Lots of Love-Love! 

2) Don't expect anything from them...just Give-Give-Give LOVE as YOU are the adult.  Ask God to deposit MORE love in your heart.

3) Do NOT take things personally or defensive.  They don't need it as they already feel pretty crabby with their mood swings.  The last thing they ever want to do is disappoint you.  Kicking them when they are down does no good.

4) Pray for

Persistence


ZZZZPersistance

We will question ourselves, we will get confused, get tired, lonely and angry, but nothing can take the place of continued persistence in the journey towards our destination.  I've known people with Masters Degrees, mega talent and Genius IQ levels...not be completely successful because they lacked in determination, resiliency and persistency.  Challenges & Obstacles will come to ALL of us making life interesting.  However, overcoming them makes life that much more fulfilling.  

We have to understand that the person who "gives up" accomplishes NOTHING, but the one that "keeps pressing" can change the world.  Little by little (gradually).....one can travel VERY far, but of
