Window of Blessings Rain Down on ME!

Hi Everybody! 🙂 I just wanted to post this awesome song by Canton Jones  called “Window”.  I believe in this year of Double perfection, Double Grace, Double Harvest and Double for your Trouble, that it’s time to shout out to the Heavens that the Windows of blessings are open over your head. That’s right everybody! Praise the Lord for these open Doors that no man can shut and the open windows of blessings going to rain all over you. For some of you, you may have been going through tough times, in fact…really really difficult times that you maybe wondering when will this time of trouble end for you and your household. Just remember that even in those times of despair, trouble is not your portion in life. Jeremiah 29:11 is your portion in life. Trouble will only last a season, and then once you have persevered, pushed through and fought the good fight, blessings will come your way for every tear shed, for every hour you were left in darkness. Trust me, been in that place before especially last year, and let me tell you, God is faithful to those that are faithful to Him. FAITH is the Key that Unlocks every door and window in your life.  One principle that I must state is important to reiterate time and time again is the principle of   Seed —> Time —>Harvest. Seed into your breakthrough in order to obtain your Harvest. Farmers expect to yield a harvest after they have done the work to sow seed, cultivate the land and expect to yield a crop for their harvest so ask yourself, what seeds have you planted in anticipation for your Harvest? Bring your seed to the Lord’s store house and see it double in this year. Seed with revelation rather than by mere ritual.  Malachi 3:10

Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,” Says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it.

My encouragement to you today is to never give up on God no matter what you go through. His Will will always be to Prosper you and never to Harm you and to give you a bright future (Jeremiah 29:11). The most important thing about an open Window, is recognizing the timing of when these windows of opportunity open for you. Do not be stuck is self-pity land during the timing when Doors open and windows open over your life. You just might miss them if you remain self-absorbed by your own problems. Focus on what’s ahead of you, that is what your eyes in the front of your head are for. There is no reason for you to focus on what’s behind you since the past is already past. Look towards the future. Live your life expecting the best that is yet to come.  Be Encouraged and know that God will never Forsake you even in your darkest hours and moments in your life. He is there with you every step of the way….so start rejoicing now and start praising Him now because I prophesy and declare that the Windows this year are WIDE OPEN for His people. Look out and hold onto your blessings one by one and keep your faith alive and keep expecting. Your season of Lack is over…it’s time to take dominion! Speak into the atmosphere and declare what it is you want to see. God Bless you Everybody and enjoy this Song. Be encouraged! Love y’all! 😀

My Memory of Yesterday Gone

I said goodbye to Yesterday,

A memory that was nothing but a dream,

filled  with regrets, mistakes, pains that have past,

I live knowing I am redeemed.

I said goodbye to Yesterday,

The shock of wrongs done and depressed by affliction,

I shed my tears of floods and rain

knowing full well I had more to gain.

I said goodbye to Yesterday,

I cannot erase what has been done

only looking forward and forward I run,

towards this unending beaming sun.

I said goodbye to Yesterday,

Yes, Yes, the day is  already done.

Tomorrow is coming, I stand to sing,

Yesterday is truly gone.

Stepping on Stepping Stones and kicking Stumbling Blocks

My thoughts today are regarding Stumbling Blocks and Stepping Stones that are placed in your life. There are many things we face that prevent us from moving forward but we should never forget that for each Stumbling block you encounter there is a Stepping Stone that keeps your balance. Everyone stumbles at one point in their life with things that life throws at them and typically they occur through the actions of others and sometimes they are circumstances that are beyond our control. We may trip and fall on many occasions, but remember that you all can get back up again. You get up when you percieve that what you tripped over was just a temporary road block to you pursuing your dreams, your destiny, and your call in life.

Whether you chose to stay on the ground is all dependent on how you view the blocks in front of you. It either halts your journey temporarily or prevents you from moving forward altogether period. It’s all in how you view what is right in front of you.

I believe that each person is given a measure of grace to handle a measure of problems better than another. Having said that, the over-comers that are able to endure such portions should not be the first to laugh at their brother or sister that cannot handle the same measure of trouble and pressures that life brings to hinder them from reaching their full potential. You must remember that if each one of us is a block; we all need each other in order to build something great that will benefit not just ourselves but each other.

The analogy that comes to mind is the whole idea of the architect. An architect needs a plan in order to build a fine structure. An architect knows the number of materials required to build that structure and that also means that each brick and each building material is accounted for. They also know that one brick is enough to compromise the integrity of the building and they also know that if you leave one stone unturned, the building structure will most likely collapse. That is why each block is just as important as the other. Each block has a destiny to build this fine structure. The thing is, you must realize that not every block is set in the same place because each block is positioned differently to create the building. This means that each block has a unique purpose and a unique position in life. No brick is the same and yet together as one, they build something beautiful. The structure is your destiny, so in essence I am saying that you need people in your lives to reach your destiny. You cannot reach your goals in isolation. You need people and the types you need are those that are there to help you build the Character that you require to fulfill your destiny.

Why am I using this analogy?  What has a building got to do with me the individual?

Think of each person that you encounter as a building block. The Structure is your dream and your destiny in life.  In my opinion, people are either one of two things in life; they are either:

1. A Stumbling Block; or

2. A Stepping Stone to your success in fulfilling your dreams and your destiny.

Sometimes we have no idea what we will become in life, but when we connect with strong individuals along the way that are purpose-driven and have some sense of direction, they are the stepping stones that we need to realize our full potential and provide us the direction to recognize our purpose in life. Some people hold fast to their dreams and some just have no clue where they are going, but in essence, we must value each connection that we make because we need each other in order to fulfill our destinies.

We all have the ability to build each other and break each other. When you encounter people in life that are stumbling blocks, they are the blocks that you have to learn to jump over and kick to the curb in order to keep moving forward. If you stand there looking at them, then you allow them the power to halt the progression in your life; you have stopped building yourself. There are other blocks around you that are waiting to be part of your life so that you can continue towards your destiny. They are the connections that you need and they are your Stepping Stones.

Stepping stones are the kinds that pave the way to fulfill your dreams and direct you to your purpose. They are the bridges that take you to the other side and are the types of people that building strong characters. Stones are always rough around the edges but as you press onwards towards the goal forgetting that which is behind you (Philippians 3:13-14), you will become polished, refined, and strengthened by the hard knocks in life. They are the positive reinforcements that nurture you to stand firm until you are no longer shaken by the things that cause you to stumble in the first place. When you reach your goals, do not forget your brother and sister that are behind you still jumping through the same hurdles as you encountered on your journey. Please understand this principle and remember that you must also become a stepping stone to their future destinies as well. This is a lesson that many fail to do when they finally reach their goals. Fulfilling your purpose is one thing, but you must understand that you have the ability to build others as well.

Stumbling blocks are blocks that fail to be part of the great plan in your life. They try to thwart your ideas and your dreams by dashing them with negativity and pain. Understand that stumbling blocks are necessary in your walk because they shape you along the way. You may trip all over them and think you’ve encountered a road block or failure but they are there to test the level of your perseverance. Don’t allow negative people and negative experiences keep you from pursuing purpose and fulfilling your dreams. Remember, stumbling blocks do what they are called to do and that is make you stumble. It’s up to you to rise up again and continue your journey. Also, consider the way you view failure.

Turn your failures into something that you can learn from and not into a reason as to why you cannot continue your destiny. 

My Last Note: If anything, you should learn to recognize your Stepping Stones from your Stumbling Blocks in your life.

Respect your Stepping Stones because if you disrespect them, you become a Stumbling Block and terminate your destiny because of arrogance.

Stumbling Blocks are loners and Stepping Stones work together to build something great.

Ask yourself, what are you?

Are you a Stepping Stone or a Stumbling Block?

Understand that you cannot avoid Stumbling Blocks but you can always kick them to the curb when they cross your path. It’s all in how you look at yourself and others that you meet in your life. Value the lessons you learn from your failures and treasure the journey towards your success. When you reach your destiny, remember those that are behind you and become their Stepping Stone to success as well.
