Prosperity

To all of my visionaries, dreamers, thinkers, AND doers… Read this!

“The next seven years will be a period of great prosperity throughout the land of Egypt.”

(Gen. 41:29)

After interpreting Pharaoh’s dream, Joseph gave the king a survival plan for the next 14 years. The only way to prevent starvation was through careful planning. Without a famine plan Egypt would have turned from prosperity to ruin. Many find detailed planning boring and unnecessary, but planing is a responsibility– not an option. Joseph was able to save a nation by translating God’s plan for Egypt into practical actions (implementation).

Proverbs 21:5 says

“good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.”

Faithful completion of one’s work is a great accomplishment. Being a diligent worker does not come naturally to some. It’s a result of strong character. Don’t look for shortcuts that result in inefficiency. Work hard as if in the service of God.

Good day beautiful people!

Q U I C K T E S T I M O N Y:

I’m cleaning out things from college (sad, I know), and I ran across this prayer I wrote concerning my dream of studying abroad. When the opportunity presented itself, I considered all of my options and chose Brazil.

Did I meet the GPA requirement? Nope.

Did I have the finances to pay for it? Nope.

But God is a promise keeper and I am a believer and THAT my friends made all of the difference. Not only was I accepted, but God made it where E V E R Y T H I N G was paid in full plus an extra $300 was given to me. Can you say overflow? Never put limits on what God can do! Never focus on your circumstances!!!

Ok bye 😘

Natural Hair Love: LOC Edition


“Those curious locks so aptly twin’d. Whose every hair a soul doth bind.”

-Thomas Carew

I realized that I haven’t blogged about hair in months (maybe a year), so I decided to take some time out to share these women and their crowns. I love seeing women sport their crowns with pride! Truth is, we all have our different textures and styles. That’s what makes us beautiful. Today I chose to focus on ladies with locs. I often hear conversation about curls, coils, and kinks, but I believe there is also beauty in locs. With that being said, take a moment to admire and enjoy…

YOU’D BETTER BE RUNNING!!

“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up, it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re the lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up, YOU’D BETTER BE RUNNING!!”
