SOTDB: God desires that his people understand that he has made a way for us to go from ruin to restoration from pain to praise, from doubting to dancing even though it hasn’t happened yet. Delayed does not mean not coming. God wants to use your life, your mess, your stuff, everything about you to help prepare the way for Jesus to come into someone’s life. There are sometimes that we will find ourselves in places where “can’t nobody” but God comfort us, it’s also in the place that whole he’s comforting you he’s helping you to be in position to help prepare the way am not be in the way. Love, Pope.
I hope all is well w: you, As I always I would like to share with you in hopes that it inspires you in some type of way:
The more you give, the more you get: Fresh off of college graduation and still jobless; my resources are limited to say the least..(LOL). Its ok, GOD got me. I could use that as an excuse to be selfish with what I do have & trust me sometimes I want to. But I instead choose to share what it is that I have been blessed with, trusting that God will continue to provide all the things I NEED; not to be confused with the things I want…Oh, how I want soooo many things..But patience is key. Giving what I can, in hopes that it blesses someone else..laying the ground work for God to continually bless me. Proud of myself. Realizing that materialistic things can never equate to the feeling that you get inside, knowing that you are effecting someone’s life in a positive day. Changing the world, one person at a time.
I feel myself changing…I will keep surrendering, God aint nearly through with me yet.
We ( you, me & yo mama nem) are the BLESSING: Instead of asking “why doesn’t God”? a much better question to ask would be, “why don’t I”? God has bee active. He has given us the people we need to impact the world. We are the blessing….[give it time, to marinate, it will change your life. It changed mines]
There is great blessings when I follow Gods leading. God, help me not to fear the outcome, for that is in your hands. My part is simply to be obedient to your inner voice speaking to me. Thank you for your prompting and for entrusting me to be apart of your grand purpose.
NOT TRYING TO PLEASE PEOPLE, TRYING TO PLEASE GOD
5. It is not enough to keep learning more and more. We MUST act on what we know and practice what we claim to believe. STUDY without SERVICE leads to SPIRITUAL STAGNATION

I have close relationships with my immediate family. I visit my extended family several times a year to celebrate holidays, birthdays and sometimes “just because.” I have a handsome,encouraging,hard working, giving loving partner who supports me in my goals and allows me to support him in his. I am healthy both physically and mentally. I exercise daily and eat healthy. I am a lifelong learner and I invest in my ongoing education by attending seminars and reading at least one book a month.

Day 12 of the #31 day Reset: Write a Letter to your Lizard Brain
Dear Lizard Brain,
I’ve been noticing you popping up at certain points in this challenge and in my life. It seems like every time I want to do something for my own happiness and growth, you show up to tear me down.
For instance, when I tried to start my non-profit organization, you showed up in the form of procrastination. I wanted to see it through, but instead I sabotoged my success by putting it off over and over again (procrastination).
Another example was when I tried to change my life by starting my own business and you came along in the form of self-doubt. I knew I wanted to shift gears, but instead, you told me that I have plenty of time to do that. Nothing is better than the present time.
So I see what you’re doing and I don’t like it. Yes, I know that you’re afraid of change. You’re afraid of what will happen if I succeed. But what you have to understand is that whatever happens in my life will work out for my good. I was put here on earth for a purpose and you are keeping me from fulfilling that potential.
Well, until now, you have.
I will no longer allow you to stop my progress in living my ideal life. So the next time I see you, I will simply give you a nod and go on about my business.
It’s been nice knowing you, but now it’s time that we part ways.
