The purpose of this blog is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to unbelievers in partial fulfillment of Matthew 28:19 as well as to educate, empower, and equip believers with tools for using spiritual weapons to win daily spiritual battles against the enemy and for being the salt of the earth and the light of the world.

“Do the Work” by Dr. Jené Walker

Leaders, you should feel a constant pull toward your leadership purpose if you are truly called to lead.

The trials, tribulations and cares of this world aren’t enough to hold you back. However, you have allowed circumstances to sit you down temporarily; to distract you; and, to delay you.

But you can’t stop. Get up and do the work. The work, time and effort seem futile at times but do the work anyway.

You think, “No one is listening; no one is paying attention; no one is changing; no one is being influenced by my leadership.” But nothing could be farther from your truth. Keep doing the work.

Leadership is a difficult concept to conceptualize and to define. It’s something planted on the inside of you, pulling on your purpose; making you continue to try to make a difference; making you continue to build; and making you continue to help the people you were created to help. It’s not about the money but like a money magnet, you will attract wealth and money to you as you lead.

Do. Not. Stop. No matter what, do the work. The fruit of your labor will manifest. The transformation in your tribe will occur. The reward for your work will be awarded to you.

Yes, of course, seek God first. Take care of your family. Get your proper rest. But answer the call. Fulfill your purpose. Complete your assignment. Always do the work.

“The Blind Leading the Blind” by Dr. Jené Walker

I know you’ve heard the saying, “The blind leading the blind!” Leaders, you have to be whole and healed in order to effectively lead your people to a healthy place, toward the vision. I’ve seen leaders come in to the workplace or church and not even speak to or communicate with or meet with the people they lead. I’ve seen leaders shun the people who work for them, cut them off and not receive what they have to say. I’ve observed leaders allow toxic people to corrupt their organizations because they’re too stressed out to address it. If you’re not healthy, the organization won’t be healthy, your people won’t be healthy, and you won’t get them to that healthy place.

This is the season for reflection and transformation. Make the necessary changes in you. It’s time to move forward and move the vision forward. It’s time to get everything God has for us, including our healthy place.

“Take Care of You” by Dr. Jené Walker

I know we are CEOs, GIRL AND GUY BOSSES, and all those other titles! I know we’re branding and trending and building! But I also know that you better take care of you too!

Leaders, have there been days in which you didn’t feel like “mothering,” “fathering,” “entrepreneuring,” or leading anybody?

Whew! Like it takes everything in your power just to get yourself out of bed?

Whenever I get that way, I know I need a realignment. Something is out of whack in me. I have to do a heart check and mind check! And then I have to feed me and care for me based on what I need.

And leaders, we need to make sure we check ourselves regularly so that life doesn’t overtake and overwhelm us.

When your whole life is designed to pour out/impart, make decisions, organize, administrate, superintend, take care of, solve problems, put out fires, regulate, nurture, mediate, and so much more, you had better make sure YOU are in alignment.

You can’t lead people into a healthy place if you aren’t in a healthy place.

I challenge you leaders to take better care of yourselves in every area of your lives. Not only does your family and your tribe need you, but YOU need YOU.

How do you take care of yourself as a leader?

“Do It- Even If You Don’t Feel Like It” by Dr. Jené Walker

Emotions can be dream, goal, and promise killers. Some of us are already looking at 2019 like, “Really?” Don’t look at 2019, look at yourself in the mirror. Then, tell yourself, “I don’t care what you ‘feel like.’ You are going to pursue the kingdom and the promises in it like you never have before.”

So get back up. It’s the 9th day and I know that some of us have already gotten in a pity party position on the sofa. Get up and do it until you see the manifestation. Do. Not. Give. Up! I can see past the pity party. I see you smiling in the Spirit. I see blushing and dimples as the promises began to manifest right before your very eyes – the marriage, the increase, the promotions, the homes, the expansion, the release, the businesses, the nonprofits, the ministries, the schools. I see you saying, “I’m so glad I ‘did it’ even when I didn’t feel like it.” Don’t let anything you “think” you’re missing make you miss what is already yours. Time is winding up. I know you sense the time drawing near for our Savior Yeshua. Dominate this earth until He gets here. Now let’s go!

“Don’t Leave Anything On the List” by Dr. Jené Walker

Have you written your goals for the week? As I seek God this morning, nothing will stop me from completing the tasks that He gives me each day this week. I was reading an article about how millionaire entrepreneur Keyshia Kaoir, owner of Kaoir Fitness, Kaoir Hair, and Kaoir Cosmetics, stays focused. She said that every single day she makes a To Do List and she does not end the day until she finishes everything on that list! It sounds simple, but how many of us have tried that and have not been able to do every task? It takes discipline. It takes determination. It takes planning. It takes having goals for the week. And when you have this mindset at the beginning of each week, you will dominate. You’ve already written your goals for the 2019 year. You’ve taken those goals and broken them down by the quarter. Now look at the quarter and break it down by month and each week of the month. You have a new opportunity to dominate. Seize everything that belongs to you. Your millions are awaiting you. Don’t leave anything on the table or anything on the list. And just watch! God will give those who watch and wait something to see! Now let’s go!

“Rebuild” by Dr. Jené Walker

God has a way of purging any way. He has a way of allowing things to seem as if they have completely fallen apart so He can show you He is still God. If they left, they probably weren’t meant to be connected with you any way. If it fell apart, God wants to give you something better. My Bishop says, “Nothing is ‘lost’ in the kingdom.” This is restoration season. This is rebuilding season. How much tenacity do you have? How much spiritual muscle to you have? You can’t cry over what you thought you lost. For a believer, to “lose” is to “gain.” Think about a bigger and a better structure. Think about a stronger team. Think about your vision and your mission. Think about what makes you happy. What kind of people do you need around you? Consider what will advance the kingdom of God first this time and rebuild. Yes. Just like that. If you built without the Master Builder, you built in vain. So, this time, allow Him to be the foundation. Allow HIM to chose your team. Allow Him to whisper the blue print. Allow Him to strengthen you. Rebuild. Bigger. Better. Stronger. More Prosperous. But no matter what don’t quit. Rebuild. Now let’s go!

“God is Your Cheerleader” by Dr. Jené Walker

People, even friends and family, will withhold their praise from you for various reasons. They will support people in other towns, cities, states, and countries doing the EXACT same thing you do and won’t support you. People are fickle like that. So if you wait around on people to applaud you or affirm you, you will NEVER consistently walk out your purpose. They will clap with you one day and pretend they don’t see you the next. When God affirms you – “This is my daughter, in whom I am well pleased” – then you have to believe what He says and move forward in that. Some of us have been stuck and stagnant because we look for the applause. You better start that business, do your ministry, apply for that promotion, buy that mansion God showed you, get that luxury car, takeover that region. It’s time for you to dominate. Don’t wait for another person to tell you “good job.” God has spoken. Now let’s go!
