Thank you Tyler for making me realize that I was standing in my own way. I always said if I help someone and they smile then I'm great, when really I myself was dying every single day. I became consumed and obsessed with being there for everyone else and there was no one left to return the favor!! btw im only 20 yrs old!! Im a college student and an independent woman just following God so He can lead me where he wants me to be. We are all joint heirs of christ and most importantly god doesnt treat us as our sins deserve so why down ourselves? Why think we ourselves aren't worthy of receiving what God hand-picked for us? It was completely by our doing. We can be our worst enemy-ive been my ownfor most of my life!! but not anymore!! you cant successfully please god and be your own worst enemy because you'll contradict everything thatGod Himself tries to tell or give to you! my prayer is for everyone to get over themselves enough and completely to wherein we wont have to fight our ownself-bc we are to love ourself-but to be honest with ouselves, conquer our fears and most importantly stay true to God!! God Bless, love you all and im praying for you:) p.s. plant your seed...and let God do the rest:)
I went threw stage were I only worried about other's a not my self. I am like the big momma every were people come talk to me tell me things I never ask. And I would ask why me and they would say it's you spirit. I am still learning that I need to take care of me. I more a giver then a receiver my friends and my kids fuss at me all the time about that. Every time I see homeless people I want to help. I get made at some of my friends that say nasty things about them. Because we don't know there story so we should never judge. My goal is to build a home for the homeless not a shelter but some were they feel like it's a home me and my two daughters always doing things to help people. And u show us that we should never stop. I love u thank you. I guess taking care everybody since I was younger and now that I am older makes it hard to do for me. But with God's help my life is about to change for the better. It do hurt sometimes that people take me for granted but I know it will pay off in the end.
The story of Esther is a revelation about a peasant who be-comes educated in the protocol of the king's presence. Can u believe she fell in love w/ the king, while all the other young girls fell in love w/ the palace, the prestige, the food, & the opulent luxury of their surroundings. Consumers eat at the King's table w/ only the occasional obligatory nod 2ward the King Himself. Consuming His blessings, they love His gifts--His power, His provision--but do they love Him? ON THE OTHER HAND, worshippers nibble at the SAME TABLE, TOTALLY focused on the King. In simple terms, Esther realized that w/o the king, the king's palace--as nice & as legendary as it might be--would be just a big empty house. Song: A chair is still a chair but a house is not a house unless there's two of us. Lol... :-) Just because u think someone is wonderful u also know that it doesn't make them to be perfect we all have issues & gonna continue to have them whether we know it or not & whether we want to or not. How do you now handle issues?
Protocol of the Palace: One day of favor can be worth more than a lifetime of labor! Esther must have known that as queen she would enjoy a certain level of access to virtually anything the king had access to. Do imagine Esther thinking to herself, If I win the heart of the king, if the king favors me, then I don't have to worry about jewelry, clothing, or my family's safety for the rest of my life. The king will always provide for his queen. And perhaps she understood that 1 day of favor can be worth more than a lifetime of labor! For Esther, the miracle began when she chose to seek the heart of the king rather than merely the splendor of the kingdom. It can seem that Esther saw something thru a divine window that activated her heart & helped her to win the king's. It was her destiny in God. In the palace of the heavenly King, we are chosen for potential but kept because of passion. I believe its safe to say right here that when power meets potential, or when potential meets power. Whichever way, they both all good! Lol..... :-)
Mr. Tyler Perry, It's a blessing to be a blessing. You are that blessing Mr. Perry. God seen your heart and God knew if He pour out blessings to you, that you would share your blessings with others. God know our needs, and wants, our heart desire, He knows who is worthy, a cheerful giver, that's why He bless you. God makes no mistakes, and He is too Holy to do wrong. If you don't believe me look at Mr. Tyler Perry, you are a living example. God Bless!!!
If I didn't have bad luck I wouldn't have any at all. I was fired from a job for getting hurt and haveing to have surgery. Now I sleep on matresses on a floor because my bed broke I have no car only one truck that's my husband and he has to go back and forth to work in it. I owe every and anybody that I'm trying to pay on but some want the full amount I can't afford it. I've always been nice to people and pay my bills but lost our first house to bankruptsy 6 years ago only living in it until I lost my job. My health is not great I've code blued 4 times in the last 2 years of being in a hospital (code blue is someone near death) no fun, was in a coma for a week. I guess my next step is sell everything I have and live on the street I hope not. Workmans comp has been puting me off. My lawyer said that they were waiting on me to die when I was in the hospital so they wouldn't have to pay anything. Through all that I still fill God has a plan for me. I have followed you from day one or at least the last 7 years. You are such a wonderful funny person you bring me laughfter where no one else can. Thank you if you get to see this, SB
Hi SB! Sorry about the life situations you are in now. God won't put nothing on you, you can't handle. I lost my job this past April, after buying a car three days before I was fired. My car note is almost $500 month and it's killing me. Not too mention car insurance, which to me is just another car note. They fired me because I was helping clients after business hours. I was and still am in my path through Christ a Peer Counselor for HIV/AIDS. I was helping people before I started working at the company, which happens to be a health department. Jesus didn't have a set time when He helped people. He did what His father told Him to do. Help His people. Why, when I filed for unemployment, they denied me . Of course I'm appealing now. God got my back. I'm also HIV positive since 2003. No one, I said no one can put no other burdens on me now. God has a plan for you and me. Don't give up just keep on living and living for God. Having faith in Him and knowing what he can do gives us the upper hand. Love you and keep your head up.
If u are married, underSTAND that ur spouse ISN'T running for office! He or She shouldNOT have to meet the approval of your family & friends. Do NOT expect every1 to see what u see in EACH OTHER; to cLEAVE is to S**** Together! Have u made the COMMITMENT to STAY TOGETHER? The secret TO cLEAVING is leaving! :-) "For this CAUSE shall a man LEAVE his father & mother....Mark 10:7. If u enter n2 marriage & still keep OTHER OPTIONS open, whether mental, emotional, physical, it will NEVER work. When the tugging of adversity tries the bonds of ur matrimony, u will fall APART. You must leave AND cleave to your spouse. It is SO UNHEALTHY to cleave to some1 other than your spouse FOR SUPPORT. Now we ALL NEED WHOLESOME friendships. However, NONE SHOULD have MORE influence over u THAN your spouse(after God). Lol... :-) Some of u could SAVE your marriage IF YOU WOULD LEAVE some of these EXTRA-marital TIES AND cLEAVE to YOUR COMPANION!!!! :-)
I loved this one. I think it is great that you made those children so happy. When God blesses me I want to be a blessing to others too.
Why was a peasant girl from a nation in exile chosen as queen by a powerful Persian king? Why did Xerxes pass over as many as 1,459 other candidates from other nations & Persia's own 127 province-nations to select Esther? Was it just because of her beauty, or did she know a secret? Could it be that God orchestrated Esther's life to reveal what can happen at a divine intersection where potential meets protocol/power? Who knows what can happen in your life when preparation intersects w/ protocol & destiny is birthed?
...that's the end of Sheneith's History class, we will pick up where we left off next time class is in section. If there are any questions write them down & have them available on our next meeting. Thank u! Until then be good.
History Class for u while u're vacationing! Lol :-) I am Sheneith Hawkins, I was born & raised in S'port, La. where both my father & mother was in our home. I said was because as of Oct.03 our father passed on to glory & our mother is still alive ( thank the Lord!) Being raised up in our home we attended church every week, our father worked in the church weekly all my life as a Deacon, etc.. Our parents didn't fight, cuss, drink, or smoke. When my father got home from work each dat my mother would have dinner ready for US all to eat, but never before he got in & settled to sit at the head of our dinner table where we each had a certain seat we each sat in each & everyday. He lead off in the grace b4 we could touch anything & we each followed til we got to my mother which sat at his left hand. B4 we could get up from the dinner table we each had to say, "excuse me from the table" Keep in mind I'm the youngest of my sibling with the oldest being 10yrs older than myself out of the 5 of us which grew up in our house together. Lol... By time I turned 8 yrs old my oldest sister had her 1st daughter. I didnt care for a baby coming into our home being I was the youngest. Of course my mother became totally attached to her. For all the years I can remember growing up I never once dreamt of having kids cause I saw it at such a young age. Now did that stop me from having children many, many years later? No, it didn't! In 1995 I gave birth to my oldest & in 2001 to my youngest son. I'm a mother of 2, 2 sons.
Dear Tyler, today me and my 9 year old daughter and her shih tzu pup, sat in my 1995 jeep for an hour on the side of the road, temp. was 89 degrees. Car after car past by. My baby girl looked up at me and said ' Mama why no one will stop and help us.' I replied, people are afraid to help and some are just not kind enough to help. At that point tears just poured down my face. I too didn't understand why no one would stop to help. I need help and no one seem to care. As a single mom it is so hard. But Hours later we are home safe. I need a new car, and I am going to keep Praying for a Blessing. After reading your message, it has given me a little hope. Please join me in Prayer, it is not safe for us to be out on the side of the road . One Day I know my help will come and I will be able to pick me out a new dependable car, just like the child with the shirts. Thanks and May God continue to Bless you. Your Fan 4ever, ,Carol
