Stuck In Construction Mode? Let Me Help You…

29Apr

Excerpt from the message presented to business women at the recent ICAWN Women Empowerment Conference and Expo (4/2014). The message is available in two parts (Parts 1 and 2) in the video links located at the bottom of this podcast page...


There is nothing exciting, appealing or comfortable about being stuck!! The word generates images of distress, frustration, anxiety, loss. And yet, without arriving at a place where your life, your business, or your endeavors simply cannot flow as usual, you will never discover the unknown. The truth is, you are a creature of habit, accustomed to the predictable routines and regularity of life. As long as there remains the ability to move in the familiar, that is where you will exist. When a crisis or a roadblock emerges, you are forced to do something different; to think outside the box, to try another route, to do something you've never done before, to explore the other alternatives. 

Getting in the stuck mode may often prove to be a blessing in disguise if one is willing to shift one's perspective. It is in this zone that your creative capacity is expanded, your thought process becomes stimulated and your potentials become activated. When you find yourself in the stuck mode, you have the extraordinary opportunity to begin discovering and exploring new sources and resources you might never before have known to exist. Getting stuck could translate to a whole new life and a whole new world, but while navigating through this process, you are going to need to have somethings in place to give you some staying power. 

Getting It Right The First Time. The Missed Appointments That You Can Never Recover

16Apr

Nothing can be more frustrating than missing a moment. Have you ever been positioned to achieve something great or significant and for whatever reason, somehow you missed your cue? Maybe you responded the wrong way, or talked out of turn. Maybe you forgot about the appointment. Maybe you weren't paying close attention. Maybe you were operating with limited knowledge about the situation, or perhaps, maybe you knew but chose to do your own thing.

Whatever the reason, sometimes we do miss appointments and are fortunate enough to secure a second, even a third chance at getting it right. But there are those moments that are really once in a lifetime opportunities and if we are unfortunate enough to miss those kinds of trains, recovery is oftentimes, always impossible.

Your ignorance of or your reluctance to subscribe to your Master Manufacturer's way of doing things or of living your life, could cost you your entire future and quite possibly with no second chance for a recovery. It could cost you your peace, your joy, your integrity, your name, your reputation, your purpose, even a promise that you have been waiting to see manifest for a very long time. It could cost you your job, your business, your marriage, a relationship, an awesome opportunity, a divine appointment. It could cost you your life. 

Excerpt_The Kingdom Citizen’s Responsibilities

8Apr

Excerpt from the message presented to members of the Miramar Kingdom Community Center (MKCC). The message is available in its entirety in the video link located at the bottom of the podcast page. The actual presentation begins at the 44-minute mark...

Rights! What is owed to us, what we are entitled to. Whether it is in the Kingdom of God, or in a community, work, church, school, or organizational setting, everyone readily embraces this concept. In-fact, it goes without saying that we will go to whatever length or take the necessary measures to ensure that our rights are protected. The scales of justice, however, demands that, not only do we need to be aware and fully engage in defending what we are entitled to, but equally as important is the need to be fully aware of and uphold our responsibilities. 

The benefit of citizenship in a nation, including the Kingdom of Heaven, or membership in an organization, is that we have rights, BUT, it is in fulfilling our responsibilities that our rights are reinforced as well as preserved. The pendulum swings both ways. You are not an authentic citizen or member if you are not abiding by the laws of the nation or organization that you are apart of.
