Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 4.30.19

Hello Breaking Bread family!

It’s the last day of the month, but the first day of starting or ending a habit, and a new day to be all that you were created to be. Stop putting off until tomorrow what can best be done or said today. Stop existing in fear and start living in and by faith! I hope that today’s message speaks to, shifts, and lovingly pushes someone—maybe even you!



Breaking Bread 4.30.19


Immediately the boy’s father cried out and said, “I do believe; help my unbelief.”

Mark 9:24 HCSB


Kay Arthur wrote that, “Fear and doubt are conquered by a faith that rejoices. And faith can rejoice because the promises of God are as certain as God himself.”

What more can be said after that?

When you believe in God then our fear and doubt should be nonexistent. If you believe that your life and what you have had over the years of your existence are as a result of God’s will, then why would we ever doubt His ability to do more for us?

Why would we then doubt His ability to get us out of debt, to have our debtors repay us, to protect our relationships and marriages, to heal us from all inflictions, to bring the right people into our lives, and to protect us from harm?

If you believe in Him and what He has already done for you, then you should push yourself away from fear and doubt when times get rough and troubling. Believe in Him to make things right and to restore balance. Balance comes from God, not from one ioata of your doing. The only thing it requires from you is to release and let go, so that there is no resistance.

Join me, starting today, to release ourselves to God—daily; to resist resisting; and to fight off fear and doubt. Join me!


Father, today I do not come to You with a worried prayer, but with a confident prayer. A confidence in You, Your son, and Your ability to do what no man, god, or spirit can do.

I know that only You can clear my life’s pathway, make me whole, cleanse me of sin, sickness, and disease, and free me from debt. I know that only You can fill my heart with Your warming love and light, and that only You can make my eyes bright for all who look inside. Father I know that only You can move mountains, fill empty river beds, calm storms, settle rapids, and bring life into this world and beyond.

So I will not call out to You in fear, pain, worry, or doubt. For I know that You are never away from me and that You are always watching over me. You know my circumstances. You know what I’m going through. You know my pain and frustration, and You know my fears. You know what I desire and what I need most. Through my obedience I know You will always bless me.

Each day You give me life and I am most humbly grateful. Today I say this prayer to You, giving thanks for what You have already set in motion. I know that it is Your will and grace that will remove my obstacles, restore those things that have fallen to the wayside or broken, and make things right in my life. Thank You Lord! In Jesus’ name I give You all of the glory. Amen.

Love always,

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 4.29.19

Hi Breaking Bread Family!

Before we jump into today’s message I want to take a moment to wish someone extremely special to me a very happy birthday. Happy 50th KB!!!!! I hope that you enjoy every millisecond of today, this week, this month, and this year. Embrace your blessings love!

Love you,


Okay, now back to our regularly scheduled broadcast [*smile*]…


However, each one must live his life in the situation the Lord assigned when God called him. This is what I command in all the churches.

1 Corinthians 7:17


If you don’t know what you have been called to do then you need to seek out the ways and opportunities that God has set for you to serve.

If you do know what your calling is, then you need to use your talents fully and be sure to give thanks each day for what God has given you.

Do whatever it is God has called you to do, and do it with passion and dedication.


Father You have called me to serve and to use the talents You have blessed me with.

I do not want to disappoint You, so each day I will work to use my talents fully, express my gratefulness, and reflect Your love and light. Thank You Father for the opportunity to serve and be of service to You. Amen.

Love always,

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 4.26.19


Therefore, through Him let us continually offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, that is, the fruit of our lips that confess His name.

Hebrews 13:15 HCSB


Even if you don’t think you have anything to be grateful for, to consider a blessing, or find worthy of praise, you do!

There may be storms in life that rain down on you pretty hard, but in your obedience to God, you begin to realize that even those storms are lessons to be learned and grateful for. You are here and present to experience them, and possibly overcome them.

If God didn’t love you and didn’t want the best for you, He would not allow you to receive one blessing—even the air you breathe this very moment. You would simply cease to exist. Like a speck, blotted out. Matter of fact, you would have never existed if God didn’t love and want the best for you. Consider that.

You must learn to praise Him through ups and downs. Don’t praise Him in good times and curse Him in bad times. Praise Him! We have an experience here on this level of existence, and then we transition. Gather your lessons here for you will learn new ones there.


Father thank You for waking me another day. I give You all the glory, for only You have the power to change me and my life. Thank You for the lessons and opportunities, and for the successes and failures. Thank You for believing in me, even when I didn’t believe in myself.

I don’t want a day to go by where I’m not praising You for all You have done, and for all You have in store for me.

You don’t need to hear me rattle off each thing I’m thankful for, just by saying, “thank You Father!” You and I are both on the same wavelength.

Thank You Father!

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 4.25.19


The one who guards his mouth protects his life; the one who opens his lips invites his own ruin.

The slacker craves, yet has nothing, but the diligent is fully satisfied.

The righteous hate lying, but the wicked act disgustingly and disgracefully.

Righteousness guards people of integrity, but wickedness undermines the sinner.

Proverbs 13:3-6 HCSB


We watch what we say around the elderly and small children, so we can watch what we say every other second of the day. If we could visually see Jesus before us while we spoke and did certain things, what would we do and say differently? Then let’s make those changes starting today, and live by this principle forever.

Each time a person spends any amount of time with you they should always come and leave feeling and seeing God’s light in you; they should feel re-energized and joyful—if they don’t then look inward to yourself and pray— and then leave the rest for God to sort out and mend.

Sometimes our desire to help others, to save and rescue others, can be counter-productive, because we are not equipped or have the autonomy to tackle those issues; and not all times has God called us to do anything other than seek, speak, embrace, and reflect His loving light. Remember that!


Father before I open my mouth touch my heart to seek You first, to listen to You first, and to speak and act as I would if I could see Jesus sitting before me. Let me only speak words of encouragement, hope, and truth. Let my days of slacking and mediocrity be behind me. Let me work passionately on all things I have committed myself to, even my relationships, never giving excuses as to why I have not given my all.

I turn every issue and concern over to You, focusing only on what You command of me, and letting go of my fear and doubt which makes me feel this need to try and control things and do Your job Father. The battle is NOT mine, but Yours, so I remove the extra armor and weapons that I was wearing for that fight—and stick to living, learning, healing, and changing through growth.

In Your circle is where I want to be. Amen.

Love always,

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 4.24.19


Be silent before the Lord and wait expectantly for Him…

Psalm 37:7


Turn off the technology throughout the day to sit in silence and hear Him. Do not feel pressured or give in to having noise as your comforter and company, instead be filled with joy at the thought and reality of God filling all perceived and actual voids.

Before you start your day let it start with silence as you listen to Him; let it grow into a conversation, not your monologue, with Him.

Throughout your day look and listen for Him through the noise and darkness.

When your day comes to an end, do not be quick to fall into old religious patterns of prayer, but rather sit, and refrain from doing or saying anything.

Just sit.

For as long as it takes for you to hear, listen, process, understand, and obey.


I am here Father. I am listening….

Love always,

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 4.23.19


Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.

The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

Philippians 4:8-9 NASB


We can always find the negative; how many of us seek out the positive? We can always point out our weaknesses and the weaknesses in others, but why don’t we focus more on our and their strengths?

We are quick to walk away from jobs and relationships because of a few things that make us unhappy or dissatisfied, but what about the numerous things that bring us joy and satisfaction?

If we spent more time looking for God in every situation and in every person, and within ourselves, we wouldn’t have 1/4 of the issues we have today; we wouldn’t have divorce at the level it is—not even close–maybe not at all; we wouldn’t have crimes and other negative scenarios.

If we truly put God first, we would only focus on people’s strengths and positives, and on God’s light.

If you make a list of a person’s qualities or the benefits of a job, and list both negative and positive, and the positive outweighs the negative, yet you still don’t want to be in that situation, then maybe it is your undeveloped skills and weaknesses that are overshadowing things and causing the negative outcomes. Then you need to turn it over to God and stop trying to fix things yourself!

Turn to God and focus only on His Light. He will take care of and stomp out the darkness.

That’s what’s wrong with us; that is what has been wrong with us in our past, what is wrong with us currently, and what will be wrong with us in our future if we do not stop what we are doing right now.

We need to stop trying to do His job and only do what He commands us to do and that is to reflect His light, share His love, follow His son, and spread His word. Anything other than these things have nothing to do with us, and everything to do with Him. For those reasons we need to stay in our lane and stop trying to get into His!


Father You do not care for lengthy prayers or repetition of Your name; what You care most about it is our connection with You and that we mean what we say, and say what we mean. You don’t care as much about the religious rituals as You do the spiritual practices and walk.

You care about what’s in our Heart.

Father today I will begin by only focusing on the good in things, in people, and in life. I will not focus on or dwell in the bad, the evil, the wrong, the negative, or the darkness. For if I look more to those things than to what’s inside of each scenario or person that reflects You, then I can’t possibly be convinced that You and Your love can and will conquer all evil.

What I don’t like in another person I probably or most likely also see or have seen in myself. It is not up to me to fix them or try to get them to fix themselves; I am to only reflect Your light so that they then turn to You to be fixed.

Today I will look for Your light in Your children, and believe that this strength I see is strong enough to squash out the darkness that tries to weaken me, them and others. Today I start my journey of looking only for You in Your children, and only You in each scenario.

Thank You Father for touching my heart this morning. Amen.

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 4.22.19


But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth.

Do not lie to one another, since you laid aside the old self with its evil practices, and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him—a renewal in which there is no distinction between Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and freeman, but Christ is all, and in all.

So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience;

Colossians 3:8-12 NASB


We must control our emotions, the words that come from our mouths, our thoughts, and our actions. We are the ruler of what we do or don’t do, no other human has that power. Let’s not even talk about hypnosis. That’s a whole other ball of wax and even then you have to give a person control!

You choose to hate or love. You choose to tell the truth or to tell lies, you choose to be loving or to be mean, to be dignified or not, you choose!

Free yourself from telling lies, from cheating in all relationships––even business–-and watch the words that come from your mouth because they have the power to help or to harm.

Since there are many people who don’t seem to love themselves enough to follow the Golden Rule, then let me say this—speak to others and treat others the way you would want someone to speak to and treat your most beloved person.

There is no place in God’s Kingdom for chaos and conflict. Only Love, Joy, Kindness, Peace, and Happiness.


Father thank You for another day of life here on Your beautiful planet. Today as other other days I face challenges, but today as some days, I am strengthened in the confidence that You are handling my battles for me. Knowing this, I have no reason to fear, no reason to be angry, bitter, or resentful. I do have a reason to rejoice and be grateful, and so today that is exactly what I’m going to do; rejoice and be a blessing to others as You have handsomely blessed me.

I have forgiven all who have trespassed against me. I hold no grudges, and have no bad words to say to or about them. If I haven’t fully forgiven, still hold grudges, and still speak harshly about them, please help me to free myself of that burden. As I pray for Your forgiveness, I know that I must give that which I seek. I don’t want You to hold a grudge against me or to badmouth and curse me, so I know that I must free myself of doing the same with Your children—no matter how much they hurt me. I have to trust and believe that You handle all things and all people. Help me to release that burden Father.

Help me to pray for them and pray that they seek the cleansing that it takes to heal them and make them whole in Your eyes.

Help me to pray that they forgive themselves and forgive others, that they release themselves from their past, and bury their spiritual and emotional baggage deep in the spiritual woods to never be uncovered. I pray that I can do the same so that I can be free to see, speak, do, and feel all that You desire for me.

Father, I pray that You touch their hearts so that they find peace and never a reason to lie, cheat, manipulate, or be cold towards others. I pray that You touch my heart, so that I too will find and know peace, and never do those things that bring You displeasure.

Through love, I release myself from their negative web, praying that they too will release that web— for Your love.

In Your name I pray. Giving You all of the glory. Amen.

Love always,

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 4.19.19


Good insight brings favor, but the way of the faithless is their ruin
Proverbs 13:15 CEB

Jesus matured in wisdom and years, and in favor with God and with people
Luke 2:52 CEB

I fear God. Period. I do not fear what man or woman may or may not do, as much as I fear God being saddened, displeased or angered with me. In my moments of desperation to cling to humans or gain their approval, I sacrifice my relationship with God. It is not through them that I reach and form a relationship with God, but it is through God that I form connections with humans.

There are people around me who I know seek to see me fail, and I am fine with that. There are people who want what I have, envy does that to weak and misguided people. I understand this. They do not know I know what’s on their mind. They do not know that I see them. It is not my purpose or plan to boast to them that I know their intent and desires. That is a waste of time and not what God has called on me to do, nor is that how He tells me to live my life. He tells me to sit, watch, observe, listen, and obey Him—for He directs my steps. I get antsy at times and want to react, but instead I try to remain still and obey.

I have been betrayed countless times in my life and will probably be betrayed many more in my lifetime. I understand that through my faithfulness to Him, the weakest links attached to me will fall off because their faithfulness is to self first and foremost.

One thing that I do know is that every single person who has done me wrong has never had to feel the wrath of my revenge, because in my wisdom and maturity I have learned that God handles all, balances all, corrects all, and all I have to do is continue living well and remaining faithful to Him.

Satan has tried to and succeeded at uppercutting and roundhouse kicking me plenty of times, including recently, and in my experience all I can do is laugh (sometimes through my tears), and say, “you won’t break me you liar. My Father comes with a force that you can never contend with you coward!” With that, the pressure subsides, and then I prepare myself for the next round of tricks, games, lures, and attacks—all the while, focused on what I must do as a servant for the Lord.

Today I share two scriptural references from the Bible. This was not an accident, but very intentional. They work well together and bring balance to today’s message.

People oftentimes reference Jesus and the sacrifices he made when they want to excuse themselves from their responsibility to their family—the family that was a gift from God. These individuals do not understand the life and legacy of Jesus Christ, nor do they understand the examples that he set for us to follow. What they know are the often regurgitated catchy sayings and verses, but they do not put into context his life and lessons that are comprised throughout the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation. They also fail to see his connection and closeness to family—look closely to those individuals, besides his disciples and followers, that were always with him for the most part.

Read and then let’s have a discussion.

Let us not confuse doing good work for the least of these as our only proof of servitude and faithfulness to God. Our first and most important priority is Him. If we are faithful and obedient to Him then we will not only find but receive balance in our lives. When we are confused and busily working at trying to play Him, and do His job, we then see a life filled with chaos, despair, and ruin—the playground of satan.

Do not attempt to hide from God by doing good deeds in His name. Either you form and nurture a genuine relationship with Him built on obedience and faithfulness, or not, but unlike the rest of us, there is no faking it with Him.

Your mission when properly aligned with God, His mission, and purpose for you, will always lead to a life of greatness—and especially within your family. You must ask God to show you the way, and then you must obediently follow.

Learn to have first a fear of God, then work to balance this fear while upholding your responsibility to family, and then by gaining favor from friends and associates from work, church, and the community.

God first, family (which includes self) second, career third. In that order is balance, out of order comes chaos—satan’s playground. Which will you choose?


Father I pray for a balanced life between work and play, between serving You and being in service of Your children. I pray to always be faithful to You, to Your Kingdom, and to my mission and purpose. While I also pray to be faithful to my family, whom You brought to me so that we might all be in service and gratitude to You. Father please continue to nurture my insight and discernment, and mold my level of patience through observation and an understanding that in time all things will happen as You plan. Block my enemies from standing in the way of fulfilling my mission in Your Kingdom. Block my enemies from their attempt to dissuade, manipulate, deter, or cause me to fail. I humbly pray these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 4.18.19


Don’t run up debts, except for the huge debt of love you owe each other. When you love others, you complete what the law has been after all along. The law code—don’t sleep with another person’s spouse, don’t take someone’s life, don’t take what isn’t yours, don’t always be wanting what you don’t have, and any other “don’t” you can think of—finally adds up to this:

Love other people as well as you do yourself.

You can’t go wrong when you love others. When you add up everything in the law code, the sum total is love. But make sure that you don’t get so absorbed and exhausted in taking care of all your day-by-day obligations that you lose track of the time and doze off, oblivious to God.

The night is about over, dawn is about to break. Be up and awake to what God is doing! God is putting the finishing touches on the salvation work he began when we first believed. We can’t afford to waste a minute, must not squander these precious daylight hours in frivolity and indulgence, in sleeping around and dissipation, in bickering and grabbing everything in sight. Get out of bed and get dressed!

Don’t loiter and linger, waiting until the very last minute. Dress yourselves in Christ, and be up and about!

Romans 13:8-14 MSG


The demand of every day kept me so busy that I subconsciously equated my busyness with commitment to Christ.” – Vonette Bright

Whatever you are doing that you know is wrong, make right.

If you are lazy, selfish, greedy, self-absorbed, feel entitled, or too busy for God and family—make things right.

If you have time to shop, play, work, or be lazy and do nothing, then you have more than enough time to spend with God. Don’t just reach out to Him when You need something, reach out to Him to give thanks for what you have.

Don’t just praise Him when you can see the blessings pouring in, praise Him when you are blinded by fear and doubt and swear you can count your blessings on both hands. Have a real relationship with God so that you can begin to really experience what life has to offer through and in His Kingdom!


Because of You I woke this morning. Because of You I have experienced countless blessings today. Thank You Father. I wake thanking You, throughout the day I thank You, and before I rest at night I thank You. Father each day I work to keep Your commandments, to make things right in my life, and to turn the negatives into positives— so that I can be the example of how an ambassador should be and should live. Thank You Father for keeping me going, grounded, and humble. Thank You for forgiving me for my sins and redirecting me when I stray. Each day I live to honor You. Amen.

Love your sister in Christ,

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 4.17.19


So the chief priests and the Pharisees convened the Sanhedrin and said, “What are we going to do since this man does many signs? If we let Him continue in this way, everyone will believe in Him! Then the Romans will come and remove both our place and our nation.” So from that day on they plotted to kill Him.

John 11:47, 48, 53 HCSB


The chief priests and Pharisees were so fearful of losing position, perceived power and influence that the only solution they could fathom was to kill Jesus. They knew he was the Messiah, but they couldn’t fathom losing their power over the townspeople—that fear caused a domino effect that has continued to impact lives even today.

Can you relate? In what ways are you trying to hold onto your belief of control and power over self, someone, something, or someplace? What example have we ever read about where Jesus demonstrated that he was a control “freak”? What example can we find where his fear paralyzed him from following through on God’s plan? What example shows Jesus forcing people to do, say, or be anything? Did he not always seek volunteers?

So why are we the exact opposite?

Don’t let fear take ahold of you. Don’t make decisions based on fear. Walk in courage. Pray for courage. Pray for strength to endure the challenge.


Father please don’t let my fear get in the way of my blessings. I never want fear to stand between me and You. May I push past the flesh to fully embrace the Spirit. Strengthen me Father, fill me with the courage to face my fears and move forward anyway. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Love always,

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 4.16.19


For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.

Proverbs 23:7 NKJV


There’s a saying attributed to Bob Proctor, that, “what you think about you bring about”.

Our thoughts and speech are powerful. We can either speak and think of a prosperous future or a bleak existence. Our words and thoughts are energy that come from within.

What type of energy do you want to put out there and see manifest?

Do the words and thoughts glorify God and bring you closer to Him? If not, you may want to reconsider them and choose instead to blot them right out of your space. Don’t expend energy on them. Don’t invest them into any situation or person. Simply let them go to fade away, or shut them down like a swift slamming of a door. Whatever you do, don’t give them your energy or they will grow in power and strength—leaving you to speak and act in a way that does everything but glorify God.

By giving negative thoughts energy, you drain yourself of your reserves. Speaking those thoughts then blocks positive energy from coming in to replenish the reserves and provide you with excess. You’re killing yourself and don’t even know it. Stop it!


Father I pray for clear, positive, loving thoughts about myself and others. Let me be rid of negativity, fear, and darkness. Let me think and speak words that generate positive energy, so that I may always glorify and honor You.

As a believer of Your Word and Your son, Jesus Christ, I humbly pray for the discernment, strength, and courage to properly channel my thoughts and speech to be in alignment with You. Amen.

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 4.15.19


A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.

Proverbs 22:1 NIV


What do you value more in your life, material wealth and possessions or spiritual wealth and eternal life with our heavenly Father? You can have both, but only by following and obeying Him. Do you think and make decisions based on your wants and needs, or based on Gods?

Does it matter to you that people may think that you’re a jerk but they choose to hang around you because you have (or will have) fame and riches (because they want to get their hands on some)? Or are you more moved by doing good and living well because you gave of yourself when you were least expected to do so?

How much of your time do you volunteer to help others who are least fortunate?

I’m not talking about what you do for your job/career to help the underserved and underrepresented in poor communities, I’m talking about what do you do in your free time (and how much time are you freeing up) to go and serve others as God has commanded us?

Even if you are financially ‘poor’ are you also too spiritually bankrupt to help those who have it worse off than you? Can you not give 1 to 2 hours a week or month to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, educate the ignorant, enlighten those with blinders, and empower the powerless?

What you do to serve others as God’s servant is what marks you in history books, ours and most importantly, His. You can’t take your financial wealth with you, and it may not survive long after you’re gone, but your name and reputation will last lifetimes. Yes, it would be awesome to have the strong legacy of a great reputation, abundance of financial riches, and overflowing spiritual wealth. But what if you had to choose between having the money or glorifying God? Which would you choose? If your focus and actions are always dedicated to glorifying God, then it’s possible to build and maintain a multi-generational legacy of both financial and spiritual wealth, with a strong reputation that is always celebrated.

What will historical records say about you?

What will be etched into your grave’s headstone?


Father it is more important to me to maintain my self-respect, dignity and honor, and not disappoint You and my family here on earth, than to accumulate money and power that can quickly dissolve and leave me broke and alone. Help me to uphold the desired qualities that glorify You while building and stewarding the financial wealth that will allow me to give more, more frequently, and to more people—in Your honor.

Father I want to make sure that I leave this earth with my name in good standing, with the confidence that I did my best to serve the least of Your children, and that I gave my all in everything that I did.

Father, I want to live my life as You so instruct and desire. I want to express the qualities that best reflect You and how You see me. When I stray from Your path, please redirect me as You see fit, so that I can regain focus on Your mission and my purpose and calling in life, and in Your kingdom. In Your son Jesus’ name I humbly pray to You for these things and experiences. Amen.

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 4.12.19


Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Hebrews 13:8 HCSB


No matter who met Jesus he was always the same–Love and Light–and we can rely on this today, tomorrow, and forever. Is this not an amazing thing to consider and to know?

Who else besides Jesus and God can we rely upon to consistently be the same, in a positive way, today as they were years ago, or even years from now? We expect a difference in humans. We expect a difference in each other. We expect a difference in ourselves.

But let us be encouraged to know that just as Jesus was so can we be. Be devoted, dedicated, honorable, and unmovable students of Christ. Carry your yoke and expect only that you will always be cared for. This is something I pray my growth will bring to me. I pray to one day walk without fear moving me one way or the other—just walking as commanded.

Happy Friday family. I hope that your day is being embraced and stewarded as a blessing. I’m alive, healthy, functioning, and loved, so a blessing it is indeed for me. Enjoy the rest of your day and may it be productive and rewarding for you and for those you serve—directly and indirectly!


I pray for peace within. I pray to change through growth but to remain the same person as Your child and servant. May I grow to be the person who is always regarded as loving, fair, honorable, and dignified, and if anyone were to say other—may others never believe this claim. Father that is the person I work to be, always reflecting Your light, and always being an example of Christ that You and Your son would expect of me. I work hard to be more disciplined, courageous, and determined. Strengthen me Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Love always now and forever,

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 4.10.19


Do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them.

Deuteronomy 4:9 NIV

Teaching God’s Truth must be done generationally. It is not good enough that those in your age range know; the younger generations must know, and it must create a generational domino effect that is never ceasing. God’s Love is never ending, His healing is never limited, so why should our commitment to Him have a time limit? Why should we not do our part to make sure that our children’s great great great great grandchildren know how good and great God is?

Children grow up to be adults, and they need the foundation of God’s Word to guide and strengthen them. Teach them now.

What I know, You have told me, shown me, and allowed me to see, hear, and experience. My healings are my testimonies. I hold what I know close to my heart. I will never let them go. I will never give anyone or anything credit for the work that You have done in my life. Even in heartache You have blessed me. May generations of my offspring praise You even more than I do. I love You Father. Amen.

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 4.9.19


In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.

Matthew 23:28 NIV


Last year I reflected upon my hypocrisy over the years. Many of us don’t see ourselves as hypocrites, we think that we’re right and just, and that those who would say otherwise are just being “haters” or just aren’t on out level. But if you’re honest with yourself you will see and acknowledge the truth, that you sometimes do the opposite of what you say, or don’t follow through with something that you start. You may also hold people to standards that you don’t even meet. You don’t always walk the walk. You’re a hypocrite.

Being a hypocrite doesn’t make you evil, it does however make you untrustworthy. How can someone trust your word when you are inconsistent with follow through, for instance? How can someone trust you when you constantly change the rules to fit your needs? What applies to others should also apply to you.

If you want honesty, fairness, timeliness, respect, dignity, kindness, generosity, gentleness, compassion, patience, the benefit of the doubt, and love—then you must give it in return. Matter of fact, give it first, not just in response to receiving it. Give what you want to receive, even if you still don’t receive it.

Here’s a great quote from Nicky Gumbel:

“Integrity’ is the opposite of ‘hypocrisy’. It means a ‘wholeness’ that comes from qualities such as honesty and consistency of character. It means acting according to the values, beliefs and principles we claim to hold.”

– Nicky Gumbel

Let these words guide our thoughts, speech, and actions today. Praying for our best, today and always!


Father, I’m a hypocrite. You know this. I’m just now admitting it. I feel bad for the ways that I haven’t been truthful to myself and others. I’m disappointed in myself for not walking the walk, especially in the areas of my life where I’ve been holding others accountable for their words and actions. I’m ashamed that my daily walk has not been a positive reflection of You. My inconsistencies do not align with or reflect Your constant and consistent nature.

Father help me to realign to Your standards. Help me to be who and what You need me to be. Remind me as my thoughts begin to formulate. Pause me before I speak and act. Help me to see me as You do, so I can see where I’m aligned or not. I want to change for the better. Please help me Father. In Jesus’ name I humbly pray. Amen.

Love always,

Grace Abound

This is a great message from Joel Osteen. Special thanks to my friend Juanita for sharing it with me. Pay it forward by sharing it with someone. Thank you.


Grace Abounds

“And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”
2 Corinthians 9:8, NIV

We serve a God of abundance! Our God is more than enough! What is it that you have need of today? No matter what is on your “plate” of life, God wants to pour out His grace on you.

One of the meanings of grace is God’s good will, loving-kindness and favor. His grace keeps us, strengthens us, and causes us to increase. In fact, He’s already extending that grace to you right now; all you have to do is open your heart and humbly receive it by faith.

Humility is an important key to receiving God’s grace. If we are prideful and seeking our own ways, it blocks God from working in our lives. But when we are humble and seeking His ways, He will empower us by His grace.

Notice in this verse that when He pours out His grace on you, you will have all that you need at all times…that’s living in abundance! And when you are living in abundance, you are equipped to pour out that goodness and blessing on those around you. He wants to overwhelm you with His goodness so you can walk in the fullness of His blessing!

“Father, today I humbly come before You. I surrender my heart, my will, mind and emotions to You. I ask that You pour out Your grace on me today and equip me for every good work in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
– Joel Osteen

Breaking Bread Status Update

Hi BBWN Family!

It’s been awhile since my last post. I’m still working on my book and…the second volume of the book. Yes, you read that correctly. It’s two books. They won’t be released at the same time, but I can’t delay the start of the second book as it feeds off of the first one. I will share more details in the upcoming weeks, as I will be reaching out to you for assistance and feedback.

I just wanted to pop in, give you the news, and tell you that I have a BBWN message coming to you in about 5 minutes or so. I will resume sharing my messages beginning this week, since I’ve completed the bulk of my book writing.

I look forward to reconnecting with you this week. Please share your thoughts, experiences, and testimonies so that we can all benefit and grow together. Sending love!
