Sex And The Church #BOLDPodcast | Season 2: Episode 6

It's amazing how GOD will come through with confirmation and love when you need it the most. In hosting The InterSession, with this specific topic of sex and worth, I received an unexpected blessing that felt like full love and confirmation from the creator that I erroneously looked for everywhere else in the past.

The panelists: Veonne Anderson, Jay Tyson, Olivia Butler and Darian A. Williams were all right on point with their commentary about pre-marital sex, Such an amazing, knowledgeable group of influencers. I couldn't have hoped for a better panel to talk about this topic with.

As you listen to this episode I hope you will be encouraged to find and honor the truth of sex and it's function as ordained by the creator in the word of truth. In my personal experience the more I sought, the more I find my worth, and as I continue this journey the process also continues.

#DontRush Challenge Yourself To Be Excellent

A lot of these #DontRushChallenge videos are coming through on social media. The concept of the video is to make an instant change from busted to beautiful, or from simple to suave quickly, based on the videos I've seen.

The irony is that the transition time is actually "rushed", but the lyrics say otherwise. Sometimes, I find myself in an anxious mindset that resembles this concept. I don't think I'm alone. It's so easy to see awesome things people are doing or even have our own ideas, and want a quick fix to get to them done, or to think we should be in a certain place, at a certain time according to our own plans.  

I had to remind myself today as a writer, that although I want to get books out, I just can't rush the process for the sake of getting them out quick, while the digital rat race is at an all time high! I was reminded by spirit to be excellent in anything that I do. 

If that takes time then that's fine as long as I'm happy with the work I've done, it's quality, and it's impactful to somebody else. At the end of the day if I've manifested that thing/idea which I set my mind to with the excellence I received when it was given to me, then I would be providing the best service to myself and others who partake of whatever that thing is.

I posted a tweet the other day similar to the concept of not rushing, but reaching for excellence. 

Most often the hard thing is to avoid the quick fix, it's to avoid settling for mediocre results for what you dream of. It's bypassing the beaten path. Don't rush your process. Trust and wait on GOD's timing while you work in excellence, that's what I plan to do.

Prayers To Keep The Peace

A stomach ache can be from the stress that comes with being an automatic entrepreneur, a stomach ache can be from the fact that you ate egg salad with old boiled eggs that you accidently burnt, and then left sitting out for a day, and honestly in the time we're living in right now, a stomach ache could be coronavirus, because you already have hypochondriac  tendencies and google your symptoms whenever anything happens.

Yeah, all these conclusions are pretty much my own. After going to sleep with a stomach ache, despite whatever the cause was, praying for healing and relief is what really has me feeling so much better now. As I prayed I literally sensed the Lord fighting for me in the spirit.

I could share some intricate, scientific article about how to relieve stress as an entrepreneur, and maybe I will on a different platform, but honestly prayer is everything. Even as an entrepreneur praying about what clients to take on and how you can assist them, I've found it to be helpful.

In regards to health, I've found that prayer works! No issue is too small. Stomach ache: pray about it, restless leg syndrome: pray about it. Prayer works! I believe when we pray GOD hears us.

A few scriptures that agree with GOD hearing our prayers:
"And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him." - 1 John 5:15 
"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 29:12-13 
"if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." - 2 Chronicles 7:14 
"Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you." - Jeremiah 29:12 
"Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much" - James 5:16
The key is not just to prayer when we're feeling bad or stressed, but to pray without ceasing.

Iyanla Vanzant's Meditation Tracks are EVERYTHING!

If you haven't already come across Iyanla Vanzant's meditation page on soundcloud, it's pretty amazing! You can check it out HERE My current favorite and clearly the favorite of a lot of other people based on the amount of listens is the White Light Meditation. 

I'm looking forward to digging into these meditations. One word of advice, maybe don't listen laying in bed right before you go to sleep. Before I knew it I was definitely out like a "light" lol. I don't think that's the goal, although it may be an option if you're overly anxious and can't sleep.

10 Scriptures You Can Fight Off ANYTHING With

Yesterday I had a question come to mind. What scriptures do you use to fight with?

Scripture says the Devil is an adversary so, If you had to fight an enemy using scriptures. . . What scriptures would you use to fight with?

Of course I googled cause it's just in my millennial nature. I definitely want to get to the point where I have my arsenal ready upfront. I will. In the meantime I found a few helpful ones. Honestly, the majority of the scriptures that I came across had to do with GOD's protection, more than actually fighting. 

I love that we are protected by GOD and The Lord fights for us. Jesus already won the battle. It's definitely up to us to really know that and use it. Jesus's victory is our ultimate weapon!

"No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; and every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication is from Me," declares the Lord." Is. 54:17

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” John 10:10 recognize that Jesus is the life bringer.

“Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me” (Psalm 23:4 NIV).

The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen” (2 Timothy 4:18 NIV).

"Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." - James 4:7

With the current research I've done, I've come to the conclusion that our fight is basically knowing that the battle is won, and knowing who to submit to because in that submission we are protected. It's only when we go out of that submission that things get crazy. Scripture says in Ecclesiastes 10:8 that a person who breaks the hedge might get bitten by a snake. A lot of times it's being out of the standards that we're given. . . out of GOD's word, Out of GOD's will, out of alignment that runs us into trouble.

I started this journey off with what we need to know in order to fight. So essentially let us know that GOD loves us and we can use the word of GOD, which is important to know to face any obstacle, any enemy, or any thing that sets itself up against the knowledge of GOD. 2 Corinthians 10:5

"In all these things, we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us." Rom. 8:37

This brings me to a song a recently had on repeat. Mali Music sings and iterates this beautifully in his song Conqueror . . .

When I asked this question on Facebook someone suggested the Beatitudes: Matthew 5
