Scripture

Think how you have instructed many, how you have strengthened feeble hands. Your words have supported those who stumbled; you have strengthened faltering knees. But now trouble comes to you, and you are discouraged; it strikes you, and you are dismayed. Should not your piety be your confidence and your blameless ways your hope?

Job 4:3-6

Reflection

When we give advice, encouragement, and support to others we must remember the words, sentiment, and actions delivered so that during our time of need we use what God equipped us with to lift ourselves up. When we praise God to everyone else but then doubt Him in moments of despair, aren’t we being hypocritical and engaging in a conditional relationship with Him?

Let God’s light come in every millisecond of the day. Feel His warmth, love, tenderness, and support. When we live our lives and express love, mercy, and forgiveness the way God intends then we never feel alone, lost, defeated or forsaken.

Prayer

Father I pray for the strength and confidence to always see and act upon practicing what I preach. I want to be there to uplift and support others through my thoughts, words, and deeds- while remembering those same thoughts and words when I need uplifting and encouragement through rough times.

Father I want Your Word to resonate through me so that my strength always lies in You. Forgive me for those days I waver, get discouraged, feel like giving up and letting life pass me by- I know You know my heart and intentions Lord and I thank You and love You for Your love. Amen.

Love always,

Natasha

BBWN Audio Message for 5.30.18

Good morning family!

A few minutes ago I realized that I inadvertently posted today’s BBWN message without audio, so some of you probably opened the message and asked yourself, “well, where’s the audio?” I just reposted the message with audio, and to save you time, I’ve included the audio below.

The audio has additional content that my written message does not, so I hope that you enjoy that version as much as the written one.

Please provide me with feedback on how I can improve BBWN, my messages, etc. Thanking you in advance!

Love always,

Natasha

Scripture

IMG_8A7152888D00-1

You wearied yourself by such going about, but you would not say, ‘It is hopeless.’ You found renewal of your strength, and so you did not faint.

Isaiah 57:10

Reflection

The stories and accounts of the men and women of the Bible were not focused on super-human creations but on regular people who did extraordinary things as they were touched by God’s light. It’s not that they didn’t have fears or doubt- think of the times Jesus prayed, fasted, asked God “why”, and the times Moses would go ask God why he was chosen to lead the children of Israel. There was fear; but it speaks volumes about these great people because of what they did when fear stood in their face and challenged them. They didn’t cower over, give in, run away, or lose hope- instead they slapped fear down to the ground, stepped on it and kept marching forward to the beat of God’s drum.

So each day as we walk, march, and make our way down life’s paths we will grow tired, but we should work towards mentally never giving up; to never believe we can’t take one more step or push one more obstacle out of our way. Our end in any aspect of our life is not for us to decide, that is God’s job. If we sabotage our lives then we cut short the blessings that were coming our way and the opportunities for success, and to make a difference in the lives of our loved ones and people around the world.

So ask yourself, “is what I’m going through in life really that unbearable that I no longer have hope and faith in God that He will see me through?”

Prayer

Father through ups and downs You never waver, You never fail me, You never fall short of blessing me abundantly. Through the trials and tribulations Your son, Jesus, never walked away, never gave up or gave in, instead he faced head on anything, everything, and everyone that came at him and attacked him.

Father through the desert and wilderness, through attacks by other people, Your sons Moses and Joshua kept their heads up and charged forward in Your name. Your son Daniel faced down fear as he walked into the lion’s den and later walked out unscathed. David overlooked his size, his inexperience at fighting and battle, that he only had a stone and slingshot, and that Goliath was a giant. David conquered Goliath because he was charged in Your light.

There are so many accounts in the Bible of men and women, Your children, who never ever ever gave up, never lost hope, and never stopped believing in You, Your word, and their role in Your kingdom Father.

If I want the personal success of having a beautiful, long-lasting, loving, nurturing, and energized marriage with obedient, dignified, hard-working, productive, and respectful children—I must first set the example as an individual. The qualities and principles that I want to see in my spouse and children must be the qualities and principles I possess and reflect consistently through You Father.

If I want professional and financial success then I must be willing to take the charge to walk even when tired, climb even when I don’t think my arms and legs can move, face my fears even when they stand in my path and seem too big to conquer.

Each day I must claim victory in Your name as I begin with the blessing of being alive. I pray for daily renewal Lord. I humbly pray to You Father, and say in advance “thank you”. Amen.

Love Always,

Natasha

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 5.29.18

Scripture

Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.

Proverbs 19:21

 

Reflection

As someone I once knew always says, “if you want to make God laugh tell Him your plans” and this phrase is so accurate that you have to laugh, because we spend the largest portions of our life planning, strategizing, and outlining our life the way that we think it should go- but never stepping back and acknowledging that through it all- God is running things and we are merely along for the ride.

If we let Him steer our chartered course then we can fully experience and enjoy the trip- we can wisely invest our time and energy into serving Him and living life to its fullest. God will always open doors, windows, and crawl spaces of opportunity for us. He will always make a way out of no way- but if He’s trying to guide the ship right while you’re grabbing the wheel trying to turn it left guess where you will go? No where. Guess what you will experience? Nausea and frustration.

Every day we must make the effort to get out of our own way, to let go and surrender to God, and allow Him to lead us to where we need to be. Lord knows I battle with myself on this regularly, and I recognize that my life is so much smoother, calmer, and stress-free when I simply let God do His job and I focus on doing mine.

Prayer

Father thank You for your patience, for Your remarkable sense of humor, for Your wisdom and understanding, and for your guidance throughout my days. There are moments in time when I think I have things figured out, and I think that what I’m doing is Your intent for my life- just to find myself puzzled when things don’t go as planned.

Father I apologize for getting out of line, for assuming to know Your plans and thought process. Father I apologize for trying to run my life like a goat, instead of being a disciplined and loyal sheep and simply following Your lead. Thank You for knowing me better than I can ever know myself, and in knowing me You patiently wait on me to catch on and catch up to the pace You have set. You are amazing. You are awesome. I love You Father. Thank you. Amen.

I love you all. Have an amazing day. God bless you.

Natasha

Audio Message

Scripture

Galatians 1:10

Reflection

God told us to obey Him and honor our father and mother. Notice that He didn’t tell us to even obey them, but to honor them. At the beginning and end of each day what matters most to our Heavenly Father is our obedience to Him. You don’t read in the Bible where we’re supposed to be obedient to anyone else.

Someone may snatch and twist a verse where there’s talk of slaves and their masters, don’t distort that to align it with man-based laws that support the enslavement of men, women, and children like chattel.

God never intended for His children to serve, worship, and obey anyone or anything but Him. Our decisions are to be motivated by our desire to please Him, not man.

We have allowed the ‘world’ to influence our decisions, dictate to us what and whom is attractive, intelligent, gifted, and successful. We have allowed the ‘world’ to pimp us out where we even jump at the chance to sell ourselves to the highest bidder. Don’t believe me? Watch reality television shows.

Are we seeking approval and acceptance from man, from the world, from the “in crowd”, from society, or so-called friends? Or are we focused and passionate about seeking and gaining approval from our Creator?

You can’t serve man and God. Don’t confuse this statement with being a servant leader and being of service to the least of God’s children. Giving of your time and resources to help uplift the poor, voiceless, powerless, underrepresented, and hopeless–is what God intends. Pimping yourself out to the world’s power-hungry and greedy, is not.

He has given us a choice.

Prayer

Father I pray to keep my eyes on You, being not concerned with the world and what others think and say about me, or even what they do to me directly or indirectly. For I know that You are omnipresent, omnipotent supreme.

I know that You are all-powerful, all-knowing, all-seeing, and that nothing and no one can destroy You or separate me from You. I was made in Your image and likeness and You never make mistakes.

I humbly accept my role in this journey, the responsibilities that You have placed before me, and my duties as a steward of this great planet that You created. I seek only Your approval Father.

Please forgive me when I forget and align myself with the expectations of Your creations, as though their opinion matters. In Jesus’ name I humbly pray. Amen.

Audio Message

Scripture

Through laziness, the rafters sag; because of idle hands, the house leaks.

Ecclesiastes 10:18

Reflection

Get up. Get out. Get going. If you are spending the bulk of your day on a computer and it is not a major part of your job/career function then you are wasting precious moments. Stop making excuses and start living your dreams. No one can keep you from achieving your goals except you.

If your job/career requires you to meet and interact with people on a regular basis, but you’re hiding indoors and/or behind a computer the bulk of your day- then you are failing yourself and failing your family who depend on you.

Are you investing 12 to 20 hours per day of pure sweat equity towards your goal? Or are you telling yourself a big fat lie that you are in the “research and development stage” of planning your life and career?

How do you explain to your family that out of laziness you squandered almost (or totally) everything God has blessed you with?

Fear fails. Laziness leads to failure. If you don’t want to be a failure or seen as one then get up and make the most of your day. Get out and make smart decisions and career moves that will help propel your life where it needs to be–where God intends for it to be.

Prayer

Father rid me from any laziness that I might possess. Cause me to rise up from my slumber. If necessary make things so uncomfortable in my life that I must do something to change my circumstances for the better. I do not want to lose favor in Your eyes Lord.

I do not want to lose the gifts and blessings You have given me because I am not doing my part to take care of and nurture them. I do not want to lose the home, car, clothing, accessories, appliances, and miscellaneous things You have loaned me Father.

I do not want my mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health negatively impacted because I have disconnected from Your plan and purpose for me Lord. An idle mind is a mind not focused on You Father, and I want my mind and heart to always be focused and connected to You. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

I love you all,

Natasha

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 5.23.18

Audio Message

The audio message contains content not reflected in the written message below. Please listen and enjoy!

Scripture

Don’t be deceived: God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows he will also reap, because the one who sows to his flesh will reap corruption from the flesh, but the one who sows to the Spirit will reap eternal life from the Spirit. So we must not get tired of doing good, for we will reap at the proper time if we don’t give up.

Galatians 6:7-9

Reflection

I’m grateful to my mother for sending me today’s scripture. It encourages me to continue doing good and to continue being loving. It encourages me to continue treating others as I would like to be treated; and how I would want my loved ones treated.

This scripture encourages me to always put God first in every decision, with every word, every thought, and all actions. It also encourages me to continue accepting responsibility for my feelings, my emotions, my thoughts, my words, and my actions. We have been equipped with self-control, and it is only our fault when we mismanage it or toss it out the window.

Freeman Smith, LLC wrote that, “Everywhere we turn, or so it seems, we are faced with powerful temptations to behave in undisciplined, ungodly ways. We live in a world in which leisure is glorified and misbehavior is glamorized. But God has other plans. He did not create us for lives of mischief or mediocrity; He created us for far greater things.”

After reading that it hit me that no matter how much temptation comes my way or that I run across, mischief and mediocrity are not my calling, so I must be disciplined enough to keep marching forward in strength, rather than be weak and give in to the world.

With the exception of movies like Se7en, no one can make you or force you to do anything you don’t want to do. You choose to cheat, steal, lie, rape, kill, be lazy, be a glutton, be mean, be a bully, be manipulative, and any other number of things. It takes more energy to do or say something negative than it does to be godly and say or do something positive.

Being negative is draining. It will suck the energy and life out of you. It ages many people. When you are positive your day is upbeat and bright, and no one can rain on your parade. When you are negative you attract more negativity. When you are negative you can easily be drained of reserved energy, and easily be pushed to your breaking point. Ever consider how much effort would have to go into breaking the spirit of a positive person? Ever wonder why no matter what happens to this person they just don’t snap, go off on people, fall into a deep depression and check out of life, or give up and end their life?

It’s God working inside of and through them.

A negative person is always looking to be attacked, always thinks there is a motive, and thinks that someone is judging them or thinks that some people think they are better than them. A negative person spends so much time trying to shine on their own that they fail to see and recognize that nothing is possible without the Father. That’s why the spotlight quickly turns off of them onto someone positive.

A positive person doesn’t need to try to shine, they just do. They can enter a room and everything and everyone just lights up.

A positive person is comfortable in pure silence, while a negative person always needs noise of some kind. A positive person feels the need to stay connected to the Light, while a negative person feels the need to stay connected to the world.

A positive person says “I love you,” no matter the situation or outcome. A negative person says “I love you” and there are always associated conditions. They will always add, “but”, “however”, or “if” whenever they are displeased. They love you most and show this love only when their expectations are met fully. There are always conditions associated with their love, conditions you must adhere to if you want to continue receiving this love.

A positive person will see the need to have God first and in the center of their relationship, allowing Him to guide them to either continue in a loving relationship, or walk away from a negative one. A negative person believes that they are the beginning, end, and the center of the relationship.

So we all have decisions in life. Which will you choose? Will you choose to be disciplined or undisciplined? Positive or negative? Self-centered or God-centered?

Prayer

Father there is no reason for me not to do the right thing all of the time. There is no justifiable reason for me to make excuses other than I’m lying to myself and thinking I can lie to you.

There are no half-wrongs or half-sins in life. So each day I strive to be honest first with myself and then to Your children. Each day I will stop before I even contemplate crossing a line that I know I wouldn’t cross if I could see Your son Jesus standing near. Each day I will make it a priority to look through the lens of another person before, during, and after a conversation. Each day I will consider that I may be wrong in a decision or opinion, and through prayer, work to realign myself with Your Truth.

When I’m attacked, I will not attack back, for the battle is not mine but Yours. Instead I will follow through with prayer, and not allow myself to be sucked in to the negativity that awaits me. It is my desire to be more like Jesus, and the only way that is possible is to change through growth every single day. In his name and Yours I pray. Amen.

Lovingly your sister in Christ,

Natasha
