Have we become an era of believers that just survive and not thrive? Have we decided to be truly free is much harder than living in our trauma and immense amount of judgement? Weekly, let’s go on this journey together as you and I explore the joys of developing a personal relationship with Christ, so we may live a life full and as conquers! God has created us to be Conquers and not Copers. Philippians 4:13 says “ I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. Let's Go!!

You are more than Enough
#9
Yesterday at 3:23 PM

God wanted me to encourage someone on today. I want you to understand that you are more than enough. He has created you to be someone that a will leave a positive impact on this world. Right now you may feel like all hope is gone or your are barely holding on to it. This is not an encouragement to dismiss or ignore what you have gone through that is currently running your life. NOR is it meant to dismiss your problems of today. Rather this encouragement is to let you know that this is not all of you!!<...


"I AM". 2 Prophetic words
#8
11/25/2022

"Tell them I am that I am sent you". This is such a powerful statement from God to Moses. Even as a child that scripture would pierce my heart and I always wondered "what does that a truly mean."

I would hear preachers talk about the many titles that Lord has and they would preach the church down!! I can hear a preacher say " I am you provide, I am your healer, I am your rock , I' am your redeemer!!" They would go on and on. While this is all true and I still had...


Be free and forgive
#7
11/18/2022

Forgiveness is far more challenging than what we realize. We might say the words “I forgive you” but is there still hurt left. Forgiveness is not options for believers. It is a requirement. Jesus made it plain and simple in Matthew 6:15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

Our father in Heaven won’t forgive us if we don’t forgive. What!!! So we can’t hold on to grudges. If we do, it contradicts the scripture when God says “….Vengeance is mine “ in Romans 12:19.

Being unforgiving is c...


You are not defeated!
#6
11/11/2022

We are not defeated!! We are overcomer by the blood of the lamb and the words of our testimony. You have to declare to yourself “My issues don’t define me!” Here is the truth…. they do not define you. Whatever you are facing or have faced, these moments in time are apart of your testimony. They are not who are you.

It is easy to succumb to life’s ups and downs which can allow us to become hopeless in the process.

Proverbs 13:12 “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of li...


Will you receive or reject..The Heart of our Father ? Part 4
#5
11/04/2022

As we end this series of Receive or Reject? We are discussing the heart of our Father. I am concerned that a vast majority of us do not know God’s heart. Well, how could we? So much of what is taught in the church is bout receiving blessings from God. Praying consistently for material things but not spiritual understanding or growing in His character.

The heart of our Father is Christ Himself. This is why we need to preach, teach and learn Christ. He is our perfect living example of God’s love. By studying the word...


Receive or Reject? Prodigal Son Part 3
#4
10/28/2022

As we continue our conversation of the prodigal son, I want us to look at ourselves as having a little bit of his ways. You may not identify with being a full "prodigal son" but you have may have some characteristics. LOL.

Our growth in Christ is about constantly looking at ourselves and be willing to change. When you see someone has returned to the faith, don't be so quick to judge. You may not completely leave but they are some areas in your life where you have decided that you will do it your way. NOT...


Will you receive or reject? Part 2
#3
10/21/2022

We are continuing our discussion about the Prodigal son but we want to focus on the older brother.

The older brother was faithful and dependable. He followed his father's commands. He didn't complain, he worked for years but yet when his little brother came back, bitterness came with it. The older brother was focused on being the obedient child, he missed the importance of who he was. He was always with his father and had access to the entire kingdom but yet he didn't see it.

Are you the dependable one? The faithful church member...


Will you receive or reject ? Part 1
#2
10/14/2022

If you have been in church for more than a day, I'm pretty sure you have heard a teaching or preaching about "the prodigal son". This parable can be found in Luke 15:11-32, I encourage all of us to reread this as often as possible to gain greater understanding.

Most of the teachings I have heard encouraged the "wayward" child to come back to God while encouraging that soul " your father is standing there waiting with open arms".

While Yes, God always has His arms open waiting for any of us to back to our...


We must mourn- Matthew 5:4
#1
10/07/2022

Welcome back!! I'm excited to be back with you discussing and learning from the word of God. This season we will focus on the words of Christ, what did Jesus say? It is imperative that we know and live by the words of Christ.

Matthew 5:4 Says "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted"

This statement is apart of Jesus's teaching and when I read this the first thought is why would those who mourn be considered blessed.

Mourning happens when you have loved something or someone beyond yourself. As I...


Jesus be my center
#25
08/26/2022

As I draw this season to an end!! WOW I can’t believe season one is here and done. Please pray for me as I prepare for season 2 and as I follow God. I'm standing in faith that we are coming back stronger in season 2. My goal is to grow and give God glory. I want people to find Christ and others to grow in Christ.

I have been on a personal journey NOT to be a church girl but a follower of Christ. I can not confine my walk with Him only to my experiences in th...


Let me encourage you!

08/19/2022

You are not alone in this walk, you have a sister in Christ that is actively praying for the blessing of God to rain down over His children. I am actively praying for souls to be saved, I am praying for your freedom through Christ Jesus.

Stay encouraged to walk another day, Stay encourage to overcome and tackle any fear. Stay encourage to stay at the feet of God, stay encourage to read your word and ask God to transform you! Stay encourage.

We are in this together! Stay encouraged.

What stopping you....Pride?
#23
08/12/2022

Pride comes in many forms it's not just boisterous, loud or obnoxious but sometimes its be silent and appear as gentle. Have you ever thought not wanting to be rejected is pride. Having lack of patience..pride. Pride keeps us form living in the fullness of God. Pride will not allow us to come into new knowledge...only if it presented a certain way.

What's keeping you from growing is the quiet but fierce voice of pride.

Proverbs 16;18 says Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall

The Lord is...


Can you judge righteously?
#22
08/05/2022

I know I am talking about judging again.... but there is a reason. I feel that we as believers pride ourselves on being the world's moral compass which in turn allows us to be the "judge" of the world.

Somewhere along the line the body of Christ has become comfort with speaking in judgment in not in love and grace. That needs to stop!! Can we righteously judge? what does that even mean? Well, let's dive in.

Scriptures references:

John 7:19-24,

Isaiah 55:8-9,

John 8:15-16,

1 Corinthians 13

I said YES!!!
#21
07/29/2022

I said Yes to Him!!!!! I said Yes to His Love. Yes to His Grace! Yes to Forgiveness and Power! I said Yes!! But what did I say yes too? When we ask Jesus to be the Lord of our lives, we receive so much from Him. We know that we could never truly repay Christ for all that He has done but He did give us instructions when following Him.

Matthew 16:24-26

24 Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me...


I can do all things through Christ.. Can I ?
#20
07/22/2022

We have all heard this scripture stated and proclaimed within our faith. I have heard it my entire life but the emphasis was on "I" instead of Christ Can we do all things through Christ? Yes!! As long as it is ordained and glorifies Christ. If I am proclaiming that I can do all things through Christ, I might want to check with Him first...... you know just to make sure this decision is apart of His perfect will. God do you want me to do this?

I think it is great we use this as a...


" And He asked "Where are My warriors?"
#19
07/15/2022

Sooooooo I'm a little bothered! Here is the truth, we as humans like to share our opinions in some way or another, which is fine but what happens when our opinion is presented as facts regarding interpreting the word of God? This is what bothers me. It bothers me when we use our opinion or bias as God's facts. This can cause confusion, help feed others ignorance or worse, lead people away from God.

Unfortunately not all believers have pure agendas. Some want a certain group of people to succeed while not truly uplifting others.

Who's in Your Corner?
#18
07/08/2022

In this episode let's talk about who is in our corner. Our team, family, friends who ever God has called to walk with you is extremely important. When Christ was preparing the disciples of what was to come he explained that they will be persecuted and every one will not believe BUT they must stay strong to mission of spreading the gospel.

Christ himself needed to the prophets and John the baptist to prepare the way for Him. After the death and resurrection of Christ the disciples where needed to continue to spread the good news.

Prayer of Thanks
#17
07/01/2022

Today let's prayer but not pray about anything but specifically give thanks. Thanks to God for all that He has done and all that He will do.

1 Thessalonians 5;16-18

16 Rejoice evermore.

17 Pray without ceasing.

18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Give thanks in all things, give thanks in the good and challenging moments. Give thanks. I'm not asking you to ignore the challenges or difficult moments in your life. Im asking you to find hope and rejoice that...


Find your Reminder
#16
06/24/2022

This episode I just want to speak from my heart about our ability to choose Hope. 24/7 News cycles to social media can leave you hopeless and breed unnecessary insecurities that does not come from God. We have to find reminders of who God is. Find a way to reminder yourself and others about His love even in less than favorable outcomes. Our hope is not based in what we want but based in who Christ is. You have to find your reminder. Can you still have hope in what appears to be a hopeless situation. What if you don't...


Rest in God- Part 3 of Living In His Promises
#15
06/17/2022

Resting in our Father's arms in beautiful and yet scary. I know that I am protected but I know that I have to let go of control. When we rest in God which is trusting in Him, we are letting go of our plans, thoughts, ideas and even desires to take on His. When we relinquish all of who we are and take on God's character it is transformative and it's rewarding.

Romans 12;2

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be...


Where's the Lie? (part 2- Live in His Promises)
#14
06/10/2022

OHHHH, this episode is different. This episode we will actively go down paths where we have been told lies about ourselves and our faith. These are not lies we have dismissed but rather lies that have shaped us. Lies that look like truth, comfort, or tradition that has actually kept us from living in the promises of God.

What are these lies? Strongholds.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5

3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not [a]carnal but mighty in...


Live in His Promises -part 1-Do you Know the Promises of God?
#13
06/03/2022

The promises of God shape us and give us hope. It gives us guidance and the ability to decipher what is truth. But do we know the promises? The Bible is full of God's promises, what He has spoken and we know what God speaks has to come to past.

“God is not a man, that He should lie,Nor a son of man, that He should repent.Has He said, and will He not do?Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good

Numbers 23:19

So if we know that Go...


God is Good!!!
#12
05/27/2022

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. 1 Chronicles 16:34

With everything that is going on in the world it is easy for us to forget the goodness of God. It’s easy for us to become overall but life and the worlds problems. As we pray for this world , pray for every leader in power to turn their heart towards God, I want us to keep a heart of praise. As we become more active in our communities, jobs, politics or any area. Let’s keep a heart of praise. Prai...


Discover the Knowledge of God
#11
05/20/2022

There is so much to learn of God. I truly believe that we will never "arrive" in Christ meaning that we know it all. We don't and we won't which is a good thing. We can not handle the pressures that come with knowing every detail about life and this world. I personally love that because it gives me a sense of peace. It allows me to focus on what I am required to know and do. But even in my personal journey I need to gain His knowledge. I can not lean on me understanding (Proverbs 3:5-6) even...


Can Worry Be My Fuel?
#10
05/13/2022

Can Worry Be My Fuel? Unfortunately worrying is a part of our lives, more than what we would like. Christ tells us in Matthew 6:19-34 not to worry, if your father in heaven will take care of the birds in the air, how much will he care for you? While I believe that Christians know this, I also believe it's hard to release worry.

What if we change our perspective and use worry for our benefit. Not allowing us to be consumed or condemned but allow it to make us get closer to God. Maybe the worry...


Who's watching you?

Matthew 5:14-16

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

It is a privilege and an honor to be a light in darkness but let's be real... it's overwhelming which cause a lot of us to no...


Praise is Our Weapon
#8
04/29/2022

How can praise be our weapon? For some of us we have heard the story of the Children of Israel and the wall of Jericho.

Josh 6:115-16

15 On the seventh day, they got up at daybreak and marched around the city seven times in the same manner, except that on that day they circled the city seven times.c 16 The seventh time around, when the priests sounded the trumpet blast, Joshua commanded the army, “Shout! For the Lord has given you the city!

How about Paul and Silas prayer and singing so hard it...


Victory Prayer
#7
04/22/2022

Life as a believer is a rewarding life, we have direct access to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. When we accepted Christ as our personal Savior we had gain access to a free and victorious life. Our victory doesn't come by our works but it come through our faith. Believing in what He died for and believing in what He reigns over. Our faith in Christ makes us victorious. God can give you natural strategy on how to live a life of victory. This does not mean you will never experience pain or hardship but it...


Freedom is your Birthright!!!
#6
04/15/2022

Do you know that when you accepted Christ, you became FREE!! FROM ALL THINGS!!! You don't have to earn it, turn around 3 times.. slap your neighbor 15 times. LOL!!! Christ makes you free. All you have to do accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior.

I get it you are a believer but you don't feel free. Trust me I know that feeling, I lived there too long but I had to go beyond what I felt or saw but stand on what He promised. Focus on what God promised but in order to know that, you have...


Who you judging?!
#5
04/08/2022

OOOOHHH! This judgmental spirit has ran rampant for far too long and too far in the body of Christ. I am not saying that we are not to determine what is wrong or right but I am concern by the heart posture of us as believers when we cast opinions.

Let our mouths (words) always reflect the love and the compassion of Christ even when we have to speak uncomfortable truths. Before you say anything , check your heart. Are words going to led to a better relationship with Christ or will it intentionally leave someone wounded and...


Breath of God- Meditative Prayer
#4
04/01/2022

“But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night.”

Psalms 1:2 NKJV

Meditation is a our right as believers! Never shy away from taking time to " rest" in the scripture by allowing the Holy Spirit to expose you to yourself. This happens in worship and this also happens when we intentionally mediate on His word.

Take a moment and reflect on the goodness of God. Are you smiling? Do you feel His joy and peace. Yes! I know I do!

Let's take the...


Power Of Complexity
#3
03/25/2022

Psalms 139;14 (TPT) . "I thank you, God, for making me so mysteriously complex! Everything you do is marvelously breathtaking. It simply amazes me to think about it! How thoroughly you know me, Lord!!

WOW!! This is something to celebrate!! How thoroughly God knows us. He made us unique and complex but I am wondering have we accepted this truth. Or have we decided that being complex and unique causes too much attention, takes too much effort. Or maybe you feel you weren't designed that way. I beg to differ!!

We are made in the very image...


Healing or Killing Us?
#2
03/18/2022

Our perspective has been molded by much more than we think. Our family, beliefs, cultural or even one memorable situation that happened one time in our lives. We’ve been taught to be more optimistic… look on the brighter side of life. Or maybe you have been praised for your ability to be a pessimist because you are “keeping it real”. As believers, I’m asking for us to examine both side of the perspective coin and ask Does my perspective align with God? Let’s jump in as we dive into the question “Is our perspective healing or killing us? “<


Draw Me Nearer
#1
03/11/2022

I’m reminded of an old hymn “Draw me nearer” while this song may not be as popular as it once was but our plea is still true. Daily we are faced with the idea of having the perfect formula to succeed but we as believers can never forget the “drawing” of God. The leading of the Holy Spirit.

In John 6:44, Christ said “no one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him and I will raise him up at the last day

In our consistent conversation with Christ we have to ask to be...

Conquering Me Trailer
03/11/2022

Welcome to Conquering me podcast !! A weekly podcast where you and I discussing exploring the joys of developing a personal relationship with Christ. I say we, because I want this to feel like you and I are having a conversation about ourselves through the lens of Christ. Every weekly episode I want us to awaken the conqueror in us and release the mindset of a coper. Philippians 4:13 says " I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me". Let's go down the wild journey we call life and become the conquerors we were created to be.
