The signs are there. They have always been there. You know if this “thing” is just physical. You know if it’s “shallow.” You know if it’s just a superficial attraction. But what often holds us here in this kind of situation is an extremely strong desire for “some” type of attention or “any” kind of affection. We’re prolonging the inevitable and delaying the real blessings Jehovah has for us. I know it gets difficult in the flesh. I know the desire for companionship can be overwhelmingly strong at times. I know what it’s like to experience a four year drought just to have the “wrong man” to be the first candidate after the drought. It’s tempting. To just have someone, anyone but don’t. It isn’t a good feeling when the physical attraction wears off and the idea of you just isn’t that interesting any more, and the phone calls die down and the texts subside. And you find out that your heart means nothing to a man who was never created for you in the first place. Bow out gracefully NOW and trust God’s timing.
So many will regret that they couldn’t see you “for you” when they had the chance. I remember a situation in which I had all this love to give. I just wanted to be a blessing. Holy Spirit would have me sow, and my giving spirit would have me bless and “help.” But I saw the doubt. I saw the questioning of my motives. I saw the paranoia. I saw the “side eyes.” And then I saw when my time was up for sowing and blessing and giving to one who couldn’t fully receive all I had to give. And now those who can see “me” are reaping my love and my gifts. And they missed out on a real one. Our personal insecurities and issues can block us from discerning when God has strategically placed someone in our lives to bless us. Don’t miss out on your blessing.
We think that because we don’t have any money, that we don’t have to know why we don’t have any. Jehovah says to be faithful over a few things. Even if we lived from check to check during the entire 2017 year, we should know where our money went. We’re just spending and not even managing or paying attention to what we’re doing with it. That is bad stewardship. Even if we don’t have but $1.00 left after paying our bills, we need an excel spreadsheet or a good old composition notebook on which we record every dime we spend. God says pay attention to everything He has given us in this season. Be better stewards over the little now. It won’t take long. You won’t have to wait long. You will begin to multiply sooner than you can imagine by taking this “simple” FAITH step.
In a clean fresh notepad, write January 2018 at the top. Write the amount of your check at the top. Then list every monthly bill (including tithes/offering and savings) and the amounts. What do you have left? If you have $500.00 left after every bill is paid, then allocate the $500 ($350 for groceries; $100 gas; $50 spending). Put those amounts in three envelopes. On those envelopes, write dates and keep receipts for each grocery trip, gas trip, and entertainment/eating out trip.
To begin to pay off debt, write each debt on the back of your January 2018 page. Start with the SMALLEST debt to the largest. So if you have four debtors do this:
1. Macy’s 750.00;
2. Dillard’s 1200.
3. Lowe’s 4,207.
4. Visa 11,200.
After your bills, gas, groceries and you have $50.00 left. You can either have spending money or you can take $30 of that and put it on your lowest debt (Macy’s). So you pay Macy’s out of your monthly bills and then you add an extra $30 each month (and anything extra that you get like overtime, gifts, etc.) until you pay off Macy’s. Then, you take the monthly amount you paid on Macy’s plus the $30 and all extra money and start working on Dillard’s. You cannot, however, charge anything else or you’re shooting yourself in the foot. Shout, “Multiply! Increase! I’m Debt Free in the name of Yeshua!”

Email me or ask questions in the comment box! Love you queens and I’m so excited about what God is doing in this season! There has been a change in seasons!
Don’t fall into the trap of the enemy in this season. You are not depressed. You are not going into more debt – you’re coming out. You may be alone but you are not lonely. You have transitioned through a change in seasons and come forth victorious. You have overcome every attack the enemy forged against you in 2017. You are more than a conqueror. You don’t have to overspend to overcompensate for you you think you are not. You are whole. You are amazing. You are royalty – kings and queens. You made it through the most trying times of your life because Jehovah is your everything. There is nothing lost in the kingdom because Jehovah restores and shows mercy on whom He wants to show mercy. You will not take any residue of rejection, depression, or oppression into the new season of 2018. You realize you are but a mist and that your life is not your own. Therefore, you are determined to live each day that you do have in the dominion, authority, and power that Jehovah gave to you. Your lot is not lack but your portion is increase and multiplication. Shut down every lying devil that contradicts what God says about you in His Word. We don’t die, we multiply! And brown people, awaken and watch God vindicate us in this season.
