 ~ SHE “SOARS” ~


Faith Light bulb:


Now that you have neared the end of your growth journey, I hope that you have come to the same conclusion that I have...God, is the reason I am the strong, independent, and courageous woman I am today. As you notice, the journey’s principles spell out the word “embraces”. To embrace means to accept or to support the change, behavior, or attitude. Through your journey, the overall goal is to accept, wholly & fully, your entire imperfect self! God said “It is good” and He meant just that! As you navigate through life, the lessons you learn will develop you into the woman God designed you to be. You will notice that people will ask “How”, “Who”, “When” & “What” questions and without hesitation, you will be able to give God all the praise! Some will see what God has done in you and know that He is still at work by using you in miraculous ways. So, this is your chance to stand with confidence, as God’s chosen soldier to go out and shine brighter than you have before. I know the feeling and trust me I can't explain it. My life changed within the last year & I am happier than I’ve been in a long time. This happiness is different, because it’s pure! I’m at peace and I truly have joy in my heart! Many people say, “You have this glow about you!” and I respond, that’s that “I’m just trusting God Glow!”!! You should try it, sis! The time is now. If you followed these principles, stayed in prayer along the way, and allowed the Holy Spirit to be your mentor, then you should be ready to take on the world, sis and your new chapter/season is just now beginning! It’s time to soar and embrace all that God has in store for YOU!!!


Act on It:


All I want you to do at this point is to GIVE GOD YOUR BEST PRAISE!!! You made it, sis! I am proud of you for taking a stand and bettering yourself, so that you can encourage the next! I pray that you keep embracing your gifts & trust God through the process! 


Pray About It:


Heavenly Father, 


It is with great gratitude that we thank you for any opportunity or any willing vessel that you have sent to help be of support as we journey on to be who you desire for us to be! Thank you for being a consistent presence in our lives so that no matter what we face, endure or overcome; we don’t go at it alone. In every step of this process you have awakened, within us, a new light. Our minds are renewed and our direction much clearer now than it was before. We pray to reach, teach & empower those who we encounter and spread nothing but good news about how you brought us over, and although we are not deserving of the love you so graciously give, you continue to pour into us more and more. As we begin to move forward in life, let us remember that your ways are not our ways and that your thoughts are not our thoughts. Let us trust you with all that we have within us and let us surrender all to you. Have your way, Lord. Mold us & make us to be more like you! We love you now & forevermore and even if we had a thousand tongues, it still wouldn’t be enough to show how thankful we are for all that you have done and continue to do! 


In Jesus Name…Amen!
