The Seed You Need


We are seeds. Today I saw a heart shaped seed. The shell was opened and the soft inside was exposed. It made me realize that as beings we are each a seed to someone's life. GOD produces us as seeds. We are here on this earth for people to benefit from our goodness. not to feel the wrath of our pain. Any hurt held in is what makes us bitter and toxic to ourselves and to others. To truly avoid this, it's VITAL that we intentionally stay prayed up.

Intentionally put ourselves in a position where we're being watered and fertilized with the Word of GOD. Allow yourself to be cultivated. It's the Lord who tills the land. Let the Holy Spirit till you. Like a seed things may be rough on the outside, but keep your goodness. Keep your softness. All the goodness, joy, and love inside of you, it IS your power. 

The goodness that's inside of you has only been placed there by GOD, and it's been cultivated by every great experience and miracle you've had. Every kindness and generosity that you've experienced.

If the enemy tries to detract you from the belief in the goodness of people, think about all the ways different people have helped you throughout your life. There is definitely something even if you don't recognize it. Think about all the different ways people have helped water you. When you think on this, it will help you be more graceful and more loving, and in turn receive more water and more light.

The word shares not to put our trust in people, but it absolutely says "Love one another." It even says love others as yourself. You can't love yourself good if you're not treating yourself good. One great way to start treating yourself good is to choose to worship. Choose to come before your creator with rejoicing, because when you do goodness and mercy, and glory shines on you. You will be restored.

The Lord is a good Shepard.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Lean Into Your Elevation


Listen to the Audio here below:

This morning I shared some thoughts with the BOLD Prayer community about toxic relationships, how Jesus actually dealt with them according to the bible. 

Ultimately, we all relate to other people based on the love level we have within ourselves. How our love tank is filled is based on our relationship, consecration, and submission to our creator through Jesus Christ. If know toxicity, then we will relate toxically. If we know love, then we'll relate to love.

Lean into the love today. Lean into the love and Only into the love in life. Scripture says GOD loves us so much that he sent His only beloved son to lay down his life for us. That sacrifice is an ultimate profession of love. When we take the time, make the sacrifice of time to lean into and prioritize this love in our lives, we're elevated. 

So lean into your ascension. Lean into that loving relationship that feeds you the most, the one with the Holy Spirit that provides the most comfort.

When we consecrate, we elevate, when we are elevated we manifest differently. We manifest from a place of elevation, not worry. Sometimes we're so stressed we find ourselves getting into those mundane situations, habits, relationships and accepting less than our Creator's best for our lives.

Manifestation is the fruit of our relationship with our Creator. Lean into consecration, and the divine, vital connection.
It will shift you, but open up to the possibility of it uplifting you. Change may hurt only because it's uncomfortable, it's unfamiliar. But our consecration is for the greatest good. Flow with the change and transformation Jesus died and arose to produce in you. When you do you'll find yourself living better, producing better, and functioning better.

Cheers to an elevated, fruitful life!

Not Your Average Hope - #BOLDPodcast | Video

 "All He wants for us is All I want for you, So let's go higher." - Mali Music

 

I woke up today with a song in my spirit, it happened to be the same song that Mali Music had to sing.  "a song about hope, a song about faith" As you might imagine there was inspiration that took place.

As I dived more into prayer, I was inspired even more about what it means to have true "hope". I decided to share this dissection, rant, revelation in this BOLD podcast episode: Not Your Average Hope".

My prayer is that it empowers you like it did me not only have "hope", but walk in it for real. Enjoy!



Scripture references in episode: 

Let us not grow weary in well doing  for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. - Galatians 6:9

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. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. - Jeremiah 29:11-14

Gospel Rapper Lecrae Going Into 2021 With Two Grammy Nominations

Multi Grammy Award-winning platinum selling artist, Lecrae, has received two 2021 Grammy Award nominations this year. The first in the category of Best Christian Contemporary Music Performance/Song for “Sunday Morning,” featuring Kirk Franklin. The song is featured on his ninth studio album, Restoration, which was released his own imprint, Reach Records on August 21, 2020. Guest features also include John Legend, YK Osiris, Jozzy, Dani Leigh, Marc E. Bassy, BJ The Chicago Kid and more.


“When I set out to record Restoration, I was sharing my journey to help heal others. I wanted to show you my scars as a proof that wounded people can heal,” explains Lecrae. “This Grammy nomination is a testament of the journey! It’s an acknowledgement for anyone on the road to restoration, and encouragement for those just beginning. It’s bigger than me! This is for us all and I’m honored!”

His second nomination is in the category of Best Gospel Performance/Song category for his feature on Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins’ Allstar gospel benefit song, “Come Together,” written by Jerkins (who also produced the song), the late LaShawn “Big Shiz” Daniels, Jazz Nixon, and Lecrae. Proceeds from the song benefited two organizations: MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund and Compassion International who are providing emergency aid to those in the music community most affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.

Lecrae is a co-owner, founder, and President of Reach Records, a trailblazing Atlanta based independent label. He is a successful businessman, investor, philanthropist, and platinum selling artist who has sold millions of albums and won countless of awards. He released his first album in 2004 independently on Reach Records and by 2008, he was the first Christian hip-hop artist to reach #1 on Billboard’s Gospel Charts. His freestyle on BET’s Hip-Hop Cypher in 2011 solidified his name in the industry and brought mainstream attention. Lecrae’s 2012 album, Gravity, won a Grammy for Best Gospel Album marking the first time a hip-hop artist won honors in that category. By his seventh album, Anomaly, Lecrae would make history yet again with the first album at the top of both the Billboard 200 and Gospel Charts simultaneously. It debuted at No. 1 on both charts in 2014. 

The quarantine and the pandemic of 2020 hasn’t slowed Lecrae’s stride. After releasing his album in August, two months later, he dropped Restoration: The Deluxe Album, adding 6 additional new songs and a lineup of features including Rapsody, Ty Brasel and Reach Records artists Andy Mineo, Hulvey, Wande, WHATUPRG, and 1K Phew. Through his partnership with 3 Strand Films, he also released a three-part video narrative, The Road To Restoration, a teaser for his forthcoming documentary.

A New York Times best-selling author, Lecrae has authored two books! His first, Unashamed and the second book, I Am Restored: How I Lost My Religion, but Found My Faith available now everywhere. If things couldn’t get any better, he recently landed two songs on the new Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales video game, “This Is My Time” (featured on the trailer) and “Where We Come From” which can be hard on the original video game soundtrack.

“Restoration is the idea that something broken can return to its original form or even better,” explains Lecrae. “The Restoration ecosystem started with a journal. I wrote the word Restoration on the front of at the lowest point in my life. As I started my restorative process, the word on the front of my journal became the theme for the entire ecosystem: the album, book, and documentary. A big part of the restorative journey is the belief that change will come.”

Bruce Lee Agrees With Jesus

Unfortunately, I've been noticing some influencers I've watched don't publicly claim Jesus. Fortunately I've been learning more about what it means to follow Jesus.

It requires sacrifice that some people aren't willing to make, but it comes with reward and peace like I've definitely never experienced.

Came across a cool video this morning of Bruce Lee agreeing with Jesus words on surrender.


Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?
- Matthew 16:24-27

This scripture in Matthew 16 goes on. Feel free to read the whole chapter.

GOD: The Ultimate Giver

Today is giving Tuesday, I'm reminded today that GOD is the ultimate giver. 

GOD has provided us with the Holy Spirit to comfort us.


But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
John 14:26

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever.
John 14:16

GOD also "Gave" us an ONLY son. so that we should not perish and have everlasting life.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." - John 3:16

I'm so grateful today for all that has been given to me and I'm looking forward to giving forward.

GOD even gives to us when we give to others. Today's affirmation is about giving.

"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” - Luke 6:38



I pray you have a prosperous and giving day today. All the best to you! If you are not aware about the concept of "Giving Tuesday", it's a great day to support your favorite charity or ministry in the work that they do to give forward to others.
