Under Construction

Under Construction
Standard

Today, I visited my local McDonald’s and they appeared to be under construction,  one would automatically assume that they were closed.

No sir, No mam, they were in full force working as if everything was in place(business as usual).  As I was driving up, I saw that they had sprayed in big bold letters ” WE ARE OPEN.”

When I drove around, I spoke to the worker and told him how I admired how they were inside working under those conditions. His response was ” Gotta keep that money coming”   His statement shared the “PURPOSE”  that had been laid before him by his managers.

This morning encounter is the inspiration for today’s post. Even before speaking to the worker and seeing his response to the situation “Under Construction”  that he was working through,God had already began to speak to me.

He was showing me how we have to be like the McDonald’s Crew. We have to keep working through the “Construction Period’ of our lives. The Final Product is going to be great!

Under Construction

God is working on us through our situations.  Many times we come to the point of quitting before the work is complete. We start to move on to other things and  never see the finished product. We have to stay focused and let God finish the work that he has started in our lives.

The breaking down and building back up may be hard. Some days you feel that this is not for you. It may be easier to do something different.  It may seem that you have been waiting for a long time for your change to come. Just remember that God has not left you or forsaken you.

Here are some tips to help you during the ” Construction Period of you life

  1. Pray Daily
  2. Surround yourself with like -minded individuals (Accountability Partner)
  3. Stay Focused
  4. Ask a friend to be your Prayer Partner
  5. Keep your Vision and Goals before you Daily
  6. Build your Faith- Study God’s word on Faith
  7. Just Believe- No matter what continue to trust GOD
  8. Re-evaluate Often to make sure you are still on track
  9. Get rid of people and things that are not beneficial to the VISION and PLAN
  10. NEVER GIVE UP

Job 23:9-11 

on the left hand where He doth work, but I cannot behold Him; He hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see Him.

10 But He knoweth the way that I take; when He hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.

11 My foot hath held His steps; His way have I kept, and not declined.

Book of the Bible ( Psalms 116)

Book of the Bible ( Psalms 116)

We all have some good days and some bad days. Sometimes it seems like things will not change. You can go on for days even nights wondering when will the ” Change ” come for me. I must say that I to have been that person who has asked the question but I have learned that you can not go on how things are looking or even off how I may be feeling. The best thing that I have learned is not to focus on my situation but to focus on how I have been blessed in other situations and trust God to make as ways as he has done so many times before.

God has never left me nor has he forsaken me or my family.   In the past 12 months, I have been faced with some very difficult situations in my health as well as list some very dear family members. We have been faced with some difficult times in regards to financial situations. I dare not to go into details on just how difficult the times have been because that would defeat the purpose of this post. It is my desire and encourage someone that may be feeling like it’s just too much for me, hopeless and down.  It is not part of God ‘s plan to to cause harm to any of us.

In the middle of last year after my surgery a God should be in word the scripture Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

For now, this scripture is my motto and one that is helping me on a daily basis. When I am struggling the hardest, I  find myself quoting this over in my head ” hope &  A future”  We have not rest knowing that God’s plan and purpose for our lives is for us to be Blessed. So my words for you is to grab on tight to the word of God, Increase your Faith & Encourage yourself. A change is coming!!!!

Broken for Purpose (Youth & Young Adult Summit ) Recap

conference
Standard

 

This past Saturday Night, Along with my family, we were able to attend the “Broken for Purpose” Youth and Young Adult Conference held in West Memphis Arkansas.

This was an awesome event. I am very glad that were were able to attend. I feel that all who attend received some life changing experiences lives that will push them to a closer relationship with God and a push to operate in their purpose.

We were blessed to hear awesome testimonies of God’s Grace and Mercy over the lives of young people that are working in the ministries of God that included , Nicole Williams, Conference Host, Justin Craven, Inspirational  address and Evangelist Jekaylyn Carr, the Guest Speaker.

 

Background Information about the Conference Host-Nicole’s Testimony

Where does Broken for Purpose come from you ask?
After being raped and molested by a step father from age 10 to 14, I was BROKEN….

I wanted to commit suicide, I ran away with the thought of being a prostitute at 14, I became a teen mother at 15 and had 2 children by a dope boy by 16 years of age…during this relationship I went through domestic violence and was threatened my life once I left him….

After I left him I was still living a defeated life, not knowing who I was and what I was worth

I began drinking heavy and smoking marijuana became my breakfast, lunch, and dinner… I clubbed, I partied, I drank, I smoked and I stopped going to church for over 5 years!

I began practicing homosexuality and even thought of living that life for the rest of my life….but one day as I was going to visit a lady friend God spoke to me and told me I was working for the devil….

I was tired of sin and I was tired of feeling empty…..

I gave my life to Christ and God filled every void and I been running every since….I want everyone to experience the fullness I have with my savior…..

So come expecting!!!!
This is not a conference….IT IS AN ENCOUNTER!!!

GOD WANTS YOUR LIFE

And NO I am NOT ASHAMED of my testimony…..but I thank God for GRACE AND MERCY!! I am a living witness of the POWER of God!

Book Review | Breaking Busy|

Breaking Busy
Standard

I was sent this book for review and this is my honest review of this book. I was compensated with a free copy of this book.

This is a great book. The author has a funny and authentic any of presenting biblical principles for everyday living in a fast paced life. She encourages us to slow down and find a balance.  So many of us find ourselves very busy with so many activities that we never realize just how fast time is moving. In all that we do, we must make sure that we working in our purpose.

This book help us to look at just how we are spending our time on a daily basis.

Alli gives the reader great insight into her own life and how she has been able to regain control of her busy life and find her true purpose designed from the beginning.  She encourages one to try to find balance in life by being guided by God and his desires for us.

I really like how she gives actions steps as this make the book more personalized which encourages evaluation and  application.

Make sure you get your copy and share with a sister or a brother that you feel may be struggling to get on track with his or purpose in this busy world …

Season, Purpose & Praise| A Message Of Purpose|

IMG_1234-0
Standard

Seasons, Purpose and Praise
This is the season to be blessed. We have already received the greatest gift from God which is his Son. Many times we are dealing with things in our lives that we may not fully understand. We may even question God as to why certain things are as they are. Difficult times many come at different times in our lives. We have to know and believe God that our Season will change.

Seasons are defined as
-a part of the year when something in particular happens.

                                             

– Season to become mature: to grow fit for use (Webster)

                                               

-suitable or convenient time

                                               
-a period of time not very long
Per the word Ecclesiastes 3:1- to everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven.

 God’s plan and purpose is not to cause harm to for you

Jeremiah 29:11 for I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Purpose- We have to just look for the signs to understand the purpose and know that God has not left you alone. He will not put more on you than you can handle. God has a purpose and a plan for all our lives. I understand that sometimes things happen for distractions and other things happen because it’s a part of the plan to get you where God is trying to take you/ me.
In the natural there are different things that we have to do to prepare for the change.

You may gather different clothes; you may even throw away somethings,

In the, spiritual you have to do the same thing. You have to prepare for the change.

You may be thinking right now that nothing is not changing for me, I been in this place for a long time,

But what are you doing to prepare. You have to make room for the new.

You have to change your attitude.

You have to put on sprit of praise/celebration

This is a time of celebration

Most of the world is preparing for the big Celebration of the birth of Christ. It a process to get ready for Christmas (from cleaning, cooking, decorating…. and we have to live ( fasting, praying, praising) everyday with the expectancy and a praise in our hearts for what is to happen.
Praise : I will bless the Lord at all times: his praises shall continually be in my mouth Psalms 34:1
Don’t let your secret worries keep you from getting to your purpose. You have to live everyday being that God designed a plan for me. It may not look like; it may not even feel like it

But is going to happen; God keep his promises and we just have to grab hold of our faith, be obedient to his world and his will.

Delight yourself in the lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalms 37:4

  
                             Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year!!!!!

Much Love …..

Be YOU’nique Project| Loving the Skin I’m In| Keeler Bryson|

IMG_1031-0
Standard

Self esteem is all about how you feel about yourself and what you believe about yourself. Many young ladies struggle with having positive feelings about themselves and this is what ultimately lead them to being involved in negative behaviors  as a means of coping with life and not being comfortable with themselves and who God made them to be. Self esteem can be crippling and prevent you from fulfilling your dreams or just doing everyday activities.

The purpose of the #BeYouProject is to enlighten you about self -esteem issues  and  feature women who are walking in purpose and encourage you to do the same 

God made each of you beautiful.  You are altogether beautiful, my darling;    there is no flaw in you ( Song of Solomon 4:7)

The Interview 

How do you describe yourself?

I would describe myself using the following words: thinker, wise, optimistic, progressive, surmounter, courageous, giving, edifier, forbearing, outgoing and fair

Discuss your successes in life or something you are very proud of?  

I believe we’re all on a journey to SELF. And it’s a blessing to find your “true” self, because a lot of people never find their authentic selves. And as a result, they’re miserable, bored and don’t know why. When this happens, we risk living a life that’s socially popular, instead of the one Divinely planned. We all start off as cocoons so to speak. The intent is to move from the cocoon to the butterfly. The cocoon phase could represent troubles, restriction, rejection, confusion, inauthenticity, dysfunction, negative/unhealthy influences & relationships, peer pressure to conform to the status quo, low self-esteem, untrue stories about our destinies & purpose, etc. Conversely, the butterfly phase would represent a LIFE that has been transformed into Divine Purpose. …a LIFE of fulfillment. …a LIFE of authenticity….a LIFE of freedom…..a LIFE where we start flying and defying the odds and terminating generational curses. It’s important to remember that, how we perform while inside the cocoon, determines whether we take wings and fly into Divine Purpose or just exist. Of all of my successes, the one I’m most proud of is my self-discovery and butterfly transformation, as this discovery launched me into my own authenticity, as well as new territory in the marketplace!

What was the hardest thing that you had to deal with as a young female/ teenager growing up? The hardest thing I had to deal with as a young person was fighting to not be one of the statistics, that’s frequently predicted for young Black girls, that’s raised in a single, female home in the hood. As a young teenager, I had to deal with fighting against being a school dropout, partaking in drugs & alcohol, promiscuity, teen pregnancy, mediocrity, thoughts of hopelessness, suicide, confusion, feelings of loneliness and lowliness. By God’s grace and my strong desire for a successful future, I avoided and/or escaped all of these traps.  
  

Relationships

Did you have a lot of friends in school?

I didn’t have a lot of friends in school. I think this was because I was usually going in the opposite direction of my peers. Case and point, I got married 90 days after graduating from high school. This is something most of my peers weren’t even thinking about doing! My mind was always on serious things, such as my future, my goals, marrying a great husband, a great father for my children, the type of house I wanted to live in, how to have success, etc. I didn’t attend very many football/basketball games, prom, school events, etc., and it didn’t bother me to not go. However, I was somewhere reading books, Ebony and JET Magazines that profiled successful Black executives and entrepreneurs. My circle was and continues to be small, as I was somewhat of an introvert at times. I know now that isolation is commonly found among those God is going to use. You’re not strange. You’re specially marked by God for Purpose.
  
Did you find making friends easy? Please elaborate with your answers  

No. I was mature and very wise for my age which caused me to come across as an old lady. As a result, I was sometimes referred to as “the moma” by my friends. As a result, I believe this sometimes made it difficult to make friends. After all, few teens want to be friends with another young person who acts like they’re their mother. This prevents the so called fun from happening. Additionally, in retrospect, I believe that the maturity and wisdom I possessed as a young girl caused me to be super cautious with whom I became friends with, as I didn’t want to end up going down the wrong road, due to negative influences and peer pressure from unhealthy friendships. Honestly, I always felt more comfortable being around positive and inspiring adults that I could learn something from. This too is a sign of someone who’s marked for Purpose.

How important are relationships with others?

Relationships are very important and I’ve learned that there are three types of relationships: confidants, constituents and colleagues. It’s important to distinguish their differences, so that we manage them accordingly. By doing this, we minimize disappointments. Each are necessary at certain stages of life, but the most important ones are the confidant type of relationships. Everyone needs at least one confidant relationship. These are people who genuinely love you, want the best for you, will protect and cover you, still respect you when you get it wrong and who you totally trust with your vulnerabilities. These are people you can be “real” with and they accept you for who you are. Their love and support is never contingent upon you living by their preferences. They will not ask you to do something they know is wrong or not good for you. They always tell you what you need to hear, instead of what your ego wants to hear. Their criticisms are from a place of love and concern, instead of jealousy and hatred.

How important is your relationship with God in your everyday life?

My relationship with God is extremely important as it relates to everyday life! It’s one that’s intimate, not casual. It’s one that I intentionally set aside time for daily. For it is because of God that I Live, Move and have my Being. This relationship enables me to Live through anything, Move to and through anything and Be all the things He designed me to Birth and Be! As a result of this relationship, I have Spiritual Intelligence, when I need answers and understanding. And I have Spiritual Backup when I’m confronted and attacked with turbulent times. This relationship keeps me balanced, strong, joyful, at peace and full of His Spirit, so that I can effectively pour into others. All that I have overcome and become is a result of my relationship with God. I treasure it, highly value it and protect it. Being in a dedicated relationship with God is how we always WIN!

Goals

If you had the opportunity to speak to a group of young females/teenagers what would like to say to them?

If I had the opportunity to speak to a group of young females/teenagers, there are 3 things I would say to them. The first thing I would tell them is, don’t make the mistake of making unimportant things important. So many times as young people, there’s this strong desire to associate and partake in that which is popular in the culture. In many cases, these are unhealthy and unimportant things that are distractions and they don’t contribute any real positive impact on your future life/self. In fact, if what you’re thinking about doing is not going to positively impact your future, don’t waste time or energy on it. Distractions are destiny blockers.

Secondly, I would say, get to know yourself and be your authentic self in decisions and in deeds. Because when we don’t know ourselves, we risk becoming and living the life God didn’t design for us. And doing this prevents us from discovering and living the Blessed life God planned for us. Don’t be a Professional Actor of Inauthenticity. It’s a form of lying and God hates lying. Most young people know who Beyonce, Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga are….what they like to eat, the lyrics to their songs, what they like/dislike, but don’t know themselves extensively. So learn YOU! Discover your giftings and your value. Discover what you’re passionate about. Discover what your belief system is….not the one that was handed down to you, as some can be toxic, paralyzing and/or limiting. Discover your weaknesses, so you can become better. Discover the things that are tormenting your spirit and preventing you from pursuing your dreams. Once you discover these things about yourself, they will help you to avoid a whole lot of drama and trauma. They will help you to be more assertive with your Yes and No’s. They will help you to be good decision makers, because the decision will be based upon the authentic you and not the “status quo” you. It is imperative that you do this, because when you don’t know yourself, people will tell you who you are and this can sometimes be dangerous. Don’t keep hiding the person God wired you to be. Always love and appreciate yourself by simply being YOU. Who do YOU say that you are?

The third thing I would say is, it may not look like it, you may not feel like it and you may not believe it, but God has placed a Gold Mine inside of YOU! This is saying a whole lot, when you take into account the chemical makeup and value of gold. Your job is to find your gold and multiply it. The way that you find it is by being in a REAL intimate relationship with God, on a daily basis, where you talk to Him, hear Him and obey Him. Also, be OPEN to His non-conventional, illogical, quantum leaping, Supernatural instructions and intervention! Doing this definitely attracts Miracles! And He will show you all the great and wonderful treasure He’s placed inside of you! He will lead you to your wealthy place.  

  
How did you decide what you wanted to do in life and what had the biggest impact in the decision that you made ( i.e. parents, faith, family , siblings etc….)  

Although my mother did the best she could and I’m appreciative of her sacrifices, I realized early on, that I didn’t want to be in that place all of my life. Growing up in a single, female/parent home came with challenges. These challenges were not all bad though, as they helped me to decide what I wanted to do in life, which was/is to upgrade my life and lifestyle beyond the one I grew up in. I just wanted to be successful. Reading those Ebony and JET Magazines helped me to realize that becoming educated was one way for me to do this, because it would position me to have options, as well as be marketable. The other thing that helped me decide what I wanted to do in life was going with my mom, on occasion, so she could clean or babysit for her well to do Caucasian clients. These visits allowed me to be EXPOSED to an entirely different way of living. It helped me to SEE what was possible for me. To this day, when I think about it, I still feel the energy of the inspiration I felt during those visits. Those visits inspired me, motivated me and activated me to go and pursue what I saw for my life. And from those days to this day, I’ve been possessing what I was exposed to. EXPOSURE is a very powerful thing! And it’s necessary, when moving to a higher state of living, moving and being. If we can’t see it, we can’t have it. What do you SEE for your life?

What would you say was one of the barriers to accomplishing your goals in life?  

The barriers to accomplishing my goals have been dealing with trials and tribulation, while in pursuit of my goals. It’s both no secret and it’s normal to be confronted with opposing forces, when trying to elevate higher. I often describe it as a rocket ship ascending upwardly into outer space. The spaceship has the fire, fuel and power to ascend, but not without having to deal with the gravitational pull. And so it is when trying to accomplish goals! We will be tested. We will have to deal with unexpected problems, setbacks and losses. We will feel frustrated, embarrassed, overwhelmed and powerless. We will feel like maybe the goal is not meant to be. And yes, there will be moments when we even feel like quitting! But we can’t surrender, because God and our future is counting on us to prevail! One thing I’ve learned is that every goal, dream and destiny has a price that has to be paid, prior to its manifestation. And this price never goes on sale, just because we’re broke, having problems, setbacks or feeling embarrassed, overwhelmed and powerless. After all, if we really Believe in what we’re trying to accomplish and want it bad enough, we will do what it takes to achieve it! While in pursuit of accomplishing my goals, I’ve experienced opposing forces, unexpected problems, setbacks and losses. I’ve been barren, bankrupt, foreclosed upon, felt fatherless, motherless, frustrated, embarrassed, misunderstood, imprisoned, overwhelmed and powerless. But in the end, I recovered ALL! In the end I birthed degrees, businesses, books, programs, products, new streams of income and an elevated mindset. I didn’t realize all that was inside of me, but God did. Trouble brought me to my destiny territory! The purpose of your trouble is to do the same. Each time you overcome trouble, you’re then anointed to deliver others in that area. I now understand and realize that I/we can truly and comfortably trust God in times of trouble! I now understand and KNOW that trouble really can’t do anything with the Power that’s within me/us! I’ve been trained to transform trouble into triumph and produce a testimony that brings Glory to God! This is what the Scripture meant when it says, “We’re fearfully and wonderfully made!” We’re so Wonderfully made, until trouble can’t do anything with us, unless we surrender to it. I’m so grateful to KNOW the reality of this!  

In closing, to the young girls who are reading these words, YOU already have what it takes to live, move and be successful! God didn’t send us to Earth inadequately equipped. A happy, healthy and Holy life awaits your arrival! I’m a tried and true witness that you can accomplish great things, in the face of obstacles, when in partnership with God! So go YOUR LIFE!

Psalm 95:1-6 – O Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, And a great King above all gods, In whose hand are the depths of the earth; The peaks of the mountains are His also. The sea is His, for it was He who made it; And His hands formed the dry land. Come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker

In everything give Thanks!

Much love Nora

From the Ayers Family Happy Thanksgiving

I take nothing for granted. Every day is a new opportunity to get those things done that you have not done yet. Do not get frustrated with the fact that you did not get it done yesterday but thank God for “Life”  and the opportunity that he has placed before you on this day.

So many are struggling with wondering why things didn’t happen they way that they plan. Have you every thought that maybe it was just not the time for it to happen.  Just maybe God has something better for you. Just maybe he is testing you to see if you are going to be Obedient! We are all full with Purpose and we must not get weary.  Do give up but keep moving forward…… Timing is everything…

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 KJV

[1] … To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: [2] A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; [3] A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; [4] A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; [5] A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; [6] A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; [7] A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; [8] A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. …

There is purpose: Live on Purpose

Standard

Many times we go through things in our lives and we wonder, why are these things happening to me?

This is just a little reminder that there is a purpose in every situation. We have to just look for the signs to understand the purpose and know that God has not left you alone. He will not put more on you than you can handle. God has a purpose and a plan for all our lives. I am now living fully in my purpose. I understand that sometimes things happen for distractions and other things happen because it’s a part of the plan to get you where God is trying to take you/ me.

Jeremiah 29:11

Do you fully understand your purpose?

Are you walking in your purpose?

Seek the Lord for the plans that he has for your Life.

Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Much Love, 💖 Nora
