What Does Vision Have To Do With Your Past, Present and Future?

Vision is a very powerful tool in helping us realize our future .

I’ve come to understand that what we focus on we empower. God gave me a revelation one day that showed me just what vision does to us. He showed me a horizontal line with a dot on the left end and a dot in the middle and a dot on the right end. He than told me that the left dot represents all past, sin, sickness and sorrow in my life. The middle dot represents now/present. The right dot represents future, faith, His promises, health and prosperity. Then he showed me as we stand in our present we have a choice to make. We can either focus on our past and it will pull that past into our present and if we allow it, it will destroy our future. OR… if we will trust Him and focus on His promises of our future and stand in faith, that reality is what will manifest in our present and will continue on to completely destroy our past!

So you decide… what is your vision going to bring into your present?


WARNING… Not Your Ordianary Book On Money

WARNING!!!!! This is not your ordinary book on Money. This book is not for those looking to posses with Greed. It is for those who truly want to prosper in every area of your life. There is a supernatural anointing on this book!  I read it twice and both time is gave me chills! The revelation of true Kingdom Worship as it related to money is all over these pages.

It teaches the difference between the Poverty spirit and the worship of money or the spirit of Mammon and how to prosper and avoid both!

It is unique! Completely different from anything else I’ve ever read. Truly a gift from God!

I hope it blesses you as much as it has me!

WHO do you think you are?

I’ve been prayerfully considering some blog topics to write about and you know once you ask… well I got a ton of topics. So here it goes.

Out of my passion to see people get set free from bondage’s in their lives and being set free from some myself, one of the most important things that I’ve learned is to ask myself WHO am I?And WHAT am I doing here?

In’ seeking the answers to these questions the realization came to me that I’ve been believing things that others have told me throughout my life and living up to those things! This was a truly startling revelation, because not all of those things were good!

You see the majority of the people on this planet grow up hearing all kinds of bad things in their lives. Hurting people, hurt people. It’s just the way it is! The thing is, I’ve realized that we have the choice whether we believe those things or not.

Most of us go through life being molded by the expectations, ridicule and demands that our parents and peers put on us. Few of us ignore those things and seek out our own identity. And often those who do, do it in a place of destructive rebellion. No instead we have allowed those misspoken words to guide our every step and limit our true abilities in life.

I’m not saying that those who spoke those things were doing so with bad intention. In fact most of the time the intention is good. Most of the time the person is speaking to try to help you avoid some of the mistakes that they have made in their past. Or sometimes they do it to just be mean. My point is… most of us are never told that we do not have to believe those things!

I have a saying that I adopted about 5 years ago when I began searching for my identity. Here it is… NO BODY HAS A RIGHT TO DEFINE YOU EXCEPT YOUR MAKER!

So instead of allowing other people’s opinions of you define you… instead of acting in rebellion and doing things in a self-destructive matter… wouldn’t it just be better to ask the maker of this universe who you are and what he wants for you? Seek out the promises that HE has for you. Like freedom, health, happiness, joy, peace, prosperity and significance.  He knit you in the womb for a special purpose that NO ONE else on the face of the earth can substitute for you. Find out what that is. Then focus on it. Obtain it and live it. Then, when He shows you the answers… simply choose to believe Him. Seek this out long enough and He will answer you. He is just waiting for you to ask.

There is nothing on the face of this earth that can match knowing what and who you were created to be. NOTHING!

I did this, and it changed my life forever… for the better.

Now That I Received My New Identity

So now what? God showed me who I was in His eyes. But when I looked in the mirror, well it didn’t match! What I did have , was a new hope. So I began to work on things.

I weighed an enormous 308 pounds! How did I get here? Years of depression and emotional eating. Several neck, back and joint injuries. Extreme emotional pain that led me into comfort eating. What a mess! How am I ever going to get to the picture God just gave me of who He sees me as? So many things yet to overcome.

The journey began! So, in between that February morning and now, life has been a roller coaster ride to say the least. But finally, just within the past few months my husband and I have seen a light at the end of the tunnel. We are finally planting some roots and feeling like things are on a stable and secure path.

18 months ago I came across a terrific site online that helped me to begin exercising at a very slow but steady pace. It allowed me to count calories and had ways of motivating me to stay on track. I did well with it for a while and managed to take off 45 pounds in 5 months. Then the roller coaster started up again. I was forced into getting a full-time job so that we could make ends meet.

The job I took was very stressful and did not allow a proper break or way of eating that could be healthy. I gained 22 pounds back within the next 8 months! I suffered yet one more injury ( this time at work) and was in chronic pain. I was getting all kinds of horrible treatment from the company I was working for and by the end of my doctors visits found myself out of a job.

Then toward the end of this horrible adventure a MIRACLE happened. I met with some people from the Healing Rooms ministries and they prayed for me. My entire skeletal system was completely healed! No more pain AT ALL! I had been in chronic pain since my first back injury at the age of 12! That was 35 years of pain. NOW COMPLETELY GONE! I knew I had to lose the weight now. Quickly, so that I would not re-injure myself.

So, now let’s go  to six weeks ago. My wonderful sister had been watching some friends of hers lose weight. There was one couple that was making a lot of money in the process too. So, my sister after 8 months or so of watching decided to find out more and give it a try. Well, within 3 days her depression left her, her energy level was flying, and her weight was down by like 8 pounds! Then within 3 weeks she had lost 20 pounds.  People were starting to ask her what it was that she was doing. She became a walking billboard and decided to get into business for herself.

I became her first customer! I mean it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that she was on to something here! So I too became a client and a Health Coach. That couldn’t have come at a better time as I now needed a job. Now 3 weeks later, I have lost 18.2 pounds (today was my 3 week weigh in) . I’ve never felt healthier, had more energy or had an easier time losing weight. I’m on my way to being  healthier financially, physically and mentally through the most exciting and encouraging and supportive program that I have ever experienced.

I no longer have doubts about how I’m going to get there. It’s coming to me. And quickly!
