7 DAy Fast: Day 5

Tuesday

Hey hey royal family and welcome back!






If you started from day 1 then you'll know all about it, but just in case...

I decided to participate in a 7 day fast.
Under the guidance of
Pastors William and Danielle Murphy of
www.dreamcenteratl.org

The rules of the fast are as follows:
  1. Liquids only until 4pm & after 8pm
  2. (1) meal between 4pm and 8pm
  3. Pray the first 8 minutes of your day...(start with praying throughIT)
  4. Meditate on the corporate focus for the day, journal before and after waking up.
  5. NO sweets, pop, sex outside of marriage, no swearing, no smoking, no saying anything negative



Corporate Focus:
".....Asking the Holy Spirit to increase our hunger and thirst for the Word of God, and to help us grow in wisdom and knowledge."

On Day 5 it was revealing.
When you removed certain factors out of your life, rather it be foods, cussing, or sweets, it allows more room for the word of God. It allows you to want to be full from other things that is not of this world.

It gives you room to seek better things for your life. To have a clear vision of who you are and who it is God meant for you to be. Everyday a piece of my purpose is revealed and if I continue to walk in his word and believe in him while doing my part, God will give me something I've never seen.

Day 5 prayer is below:
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks, it will be opened." -Matthew 7:7-8

I thank you all for your support, for watching and for supporting"
Until Next time!!!


7 Day Fast: Day 4

Monday









Hey royal family, welcome back!




If you started from day 1 then you'll know all about it, but just in case...

I decided to participate in a 7 day fast.
Under the guidance of
Pastors William and Danielle Murphy of
www.dreamcenteratl.org
The rules of the fast are as follows:
  1. Liquids only until 4pm & after 8pm
  2. (1) meal between 4pm and 8pm
  3. Pray the first 8 minutes of your day...(start with praying throughIT)
  4. Meditate on the corporate focus for the day, journal before and after waking up.
  5. NO sweets, pop, sex outside of marriage, no swearing, no smoking, no saying anything negative


Today's corporate focus is as follows:

       ....asking the Holy spirit to remove the fear of sharing our story with the unchurched, and to give us the influence to win them to Jesus.

The task was to share your story with someone and invite them to church. I did invite a few people to service with me but sad to see I didn't make it myself.

You have to be careful who you share your life with. The devil can disguise himself in many different pieces of clothing. Speak it to God if you have no one in your life. Allow him to be the one that'll help see you through clearly.

Often times I am afraid to share my stories because we have the nay sayers and the negative nancy popping up to try and stop whatever it is that is trying to come from you!

Do it first and then allow God to share the story for you!

Until next time folks!

 CORPORATE FOCUS
Day 3:
Asking Holy Spirit to have his way in and through our families and church families.



This morning I prepared myself better for my liquids only up until 4pm.
 I grabbed me some health and nutritious smoothies along with some Gatorade that'll keep me replenished and hydrated. I cannot forget the water.
 I have 1L of that as well. lol Its tough, and it is my first fast but I'm trying!

It was a good day.
It seemed like my body was catching on.
 My spirit pushed me to pray through situations and then there’s the swearing!
I’m trying y’all I really am lol.
 I’m catching myself and paying more attention to what I let come out my mouth.
Every day is smoother!
The more obedient you are the easier it is made out to be!
I’m so thankful!

Thank you all for reading!
Until next time! 



7 Day Fast: Day 2

Friday

Hey royal family, welcome back!
If you started from day 1 then you'll know all about it, but just in case...

  4. Meditate on the corporate focus for the day, journal before and after waking up.
  5. NO sweets, pop, sex outside of marriage, no swearing, no smoking, no saying anything negative

On day two my swearing did get a lot better, I was sometimes able to recognize when I would cuss and I acknowledged it so that I'd be careful the next time I opened my mouth.

I also ate a veeeeery small piece of chicken before 4pm. After I prayed for about it, for strength to not do it again and forgiveness for doing it in the first place.

On day 2 I was tried plenty times by the devil, but I can say my praise outweighed his attempts.
I focused on the bigger picture of things that I often blur out, and I can say asking to make worship easier helped me pray to get through my day.
 
 
Corporate focus
Day 2:
Asking the Holy Spirit to make personal devotion and times of worship easier, and more consistent.

I made it through the rest of my day as I said this prayer along with Dream Center of Atlanta on Instagram:

“STOP TRIPPING! You’ve got GOD on your side, and you’re filled with HOLY SPIRIT! The SPIRIT of the LIVING GOD is on you, in you and with you…and this makes you UNBEATABLE! So my PRAYER for you today is that you not grow weary in doing well. I PRAY that you receive the work of the HOLY SPIRIT in your LIFE, and REFUSE to let the challenges of the season wear you down! I DECREE and DECLARE you are STRONG! You are FOCUSED! You are UNBREAKABLE! You are the one that GOD is using to RESTORE CREDIBILITY, and SIGNIFICANCE to your FAMILY. I DECLARE you’re gonna be STRONG! You’re gonna be WISER! You’re gonna be who GOD’s created you to be! You’re gonna be BETTER! You’re gonna be BIGGER! You’re gonna be EVERYTHING you dReamt of being! And you’re “being”, begins TODAY!

In JESUS NAME

Thank you all for following my journey!

7 Day Fast: Day 1

Wednesday

Hey guys!
So I have been following this church VIA internet lately.
Watching the sermons, tuning in to events, etc.

I haven't belonged to a church in years and I have been wanting to find one so bad lately.
So I was told about
  Dream Center of Atlanta; Lead Pastor William Murphy, First Lady Danielle Murphy,
 from someone who was also new here and seeking a church home.
I'm not big on the Baptist churches, and those forcing the word down your throat, so I was on the search for a non-denomination church


Listed above is the link to the church, it is one amazing place from what I see.
If I can feel the spirit through the live services, I can just imagine what the in person experience would be like.

So upon following them and everything they do, I notice they were beginning a fast.
I have never been on a fast, but reading it I knew I needed it!
For those unaware, a fast is the abstinence of something.
 

The rules of the fast are as follows:
  1. Liquids only until 4pm & after 8pm
  2. (1) meal between $pm and 8pm
  3. Pray the first 8 minutes of your day...(start with praying throughIT)
  4. Meditate on the corporate focus for the day, journal before and after waking up.
  5. NO sweets, pop, sex outside of marriage, no swearing, no smoking, no saying anything negative

CORPORATE FOCUS
Day 1:
Asking the Holy Spirit to increase and sharpen our prayer life.

I made it through my day as I said this prayer along with Dream Center of Atlanta on Instagram:

“FATHER, I THANK YOU for breaking that needy spirit off my life! I THANK YOU for teaching me how to be alone, and how to appreciate solitude and peace in my personal space. I PRAISE YOU today for walking me to a place where I no longer need to be needed, and I no longer have to have people around me just so I won’t be alone. THANK YOU!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today, I confess…”I’m HAPPY with JESUS alone!” I’m good, even if it’s just me and YOU. I’m content with being with YOU, and with the JOY and SAFETY of YOUR PRESENCE.

 
Today is day one for me and boy am I hungry lol! 
I cannot wait until 4pm.
I woke up praying this morning.
I haven't had any sweets, soda, or said anything negative.
 No sex outside of marriage is a piece of cake for me lol!
I said one swear word, damn! lol
I honestly feel its best I keep quite because swearing usually falls out of my mouth.
Any who, I am extremely excited for this journey.
I pray for the strength to pull through and I can't wait to spend more time learning myself on a more in depth level.
Join me Daily as I blog my journey.
Thank you all and pray for me as I pray for you! 
Until Next Time

A mothers POV: SURVIVING R. KELLY

Hey there royal family and a Happy New Year!



I wanted to go ahead and give my input on this whole R. Kelly thing since I am the mother of a young queen. 

I will also start by saying I have yet to see the docu-series, honestly I don't want to or think I will.

If you're unaware, recently a documentary was released called
 "Surviving R. Kelly" 
with multiple women sharing their truths on their situations with him.

I have seen and heard plenty different sides.
I see the internet going back and forth.
I hear the radios with their opinions and their stories.
Image result for r kelly crossed out
(I THINK ORANGE LOOKS GOOD ON HIM)


I have a young daughter, and to imagine any man taking complete advantage of her sickens me to my knees. 
I have heard people say R. Kelly is wrong which is 100% true. 
Then I have heard a few people saying they blame these women's parents.


  1. I agree with any ill feelings towards R. Kelly.
    1. He is wrong!!
    2. He is disgusting!!
    3. He needs help!!
    What person in their right mind would want the sexual affection of a teenage girl?
    Men are bred from women, raised by women, fed by women, and yet you destroy their innocence?
    What kind of satisfaction can really come from that?
    He's wrong no matter the state of mind of the girls. 

    We can all agree at one point in our life we have been "brainwashed" by some man we thought "loved us.

    So for anyone to blame these girls are wrong. 
    Everyone goes through learning and growing.
    If you were never taught you can't know and you can't learn if you never experience.
    So it is easy for any GROWN man to come in and manipulate the mind of a young girl.

    This falls in with the other thing I have been hearing, 
    BLAME THE PARENTS.

    This morning, over the radio I heard Master P saying he also blames the parents. 
    Because,
    1. It is your job to help them 

    2. It is your job to guide them
    3. It is your job to nurture them 
    4. It is your job to teach them
    It is your job to make sure your daughter OR son doesn't have to seek "love" and "attention" from some grown man/woman.
    Teach them to know what’s ok and what’s not.
    What not to keep in. Build a firm trust so that you will become their secret box.
    Build a relationship.
    Build them up to be secure so they’ll know how far to go. 


    So I agree, the parents are to somewhat blame. 
    Like Master P said, if my baby in some place with some grown ass man I'm not knocking on windows and throwing rocks, I'm going to war for mine and trying to help remove her from any situation. 


    Abuse is deep and sometimes you can't see it from the outside looking in. 
    So be there for your kids, talk to them and teach them. 
    Sex trafficking has become common in our young girls and it starts off by a predator pretending to love you. 
    Show them real love so they don't become confused on whats really real.

    Don't forget to check out The Queens Only podcast on licnetwork.com.
    This week's segment was called Cancelled: Surviving R. Kelly.

    UNTIL NEXT TIME

    Faith. Favor. & Love.


    FAITH. FAVOR. LOVE


    Let me tell yall something,
     one thing about me is that the favor of God is all over me.
     It doesn’t matter what I face I always get through it

    I was raised not to worry, so ANYTHING...and I do mean ANYTHING
    that I come to or go through...that’s the one thing I never do.

    God is always so good to me.


    I’m telling y’all being down here in Atlanta......
     well I don’t live in Atlanta (I hate when people move to Georgia and say they live in Atlanta)
     but anyways to Georgia(lol).
    Every since I moved here I’m telling you I have been coming to some things & been going through some things that I’ve either number one never encountered before or number two never had to encounter alone.

    Everything that I’ve been doing I’ve been doing 90% on my own.
     I get help from others when I can, I get help from others when I really need, but everybody is at least at least a minimum of 30 minutes from me.

    So, my car right, I love my car, very thankful for my car, I thank God every day for my car!
    It’s a very good car but you know everything got some flaws in it.
     So I got a few leakage glitches in my windshield.
     Now now, I have my rainy day money for this rain here that I’m going through but I don’t have hurricane money lmbo.

    So in Georgia it rains a lot, for a week at a time at least.
     And Friday on my way to take my baby to daycare in the middle of the rain my windshield wipers just stopped working! 
    So that day I had to call into work and I had to call her off at school. 
    That day after it stopped raining I went and I stayed over my sisters house,
    & anywhere we went she told me I could drive her car or she will drive
    (god bless her soul lol)

    So thank God the next day it didn’t rain.
     We helping my sister & brother in law move into their beautiful, BEAUTIFULl town home, that I am so happy for her to have!
    We moved into it & we stay the night with her after helping unpack and helping her get settled you know how we do.
    So come Sunday, Riley and I get ready to leave. 
    We’re checking the weather and we notice it’s supposed to rain for the next 3 to 5 days consistently!
    At this point the car was the last thing I'd worry about because
     he may not come when you want him to, but he is always on time.

    So she’s like 
    "if you want you can just take my car" 
    (lump in my throat)
     Because one thing that I’ve been working on is being too prideful!
    I don’t often like seeking help so I’m so, SO grateful.
    so grateful that God gave me a mother to instill such greatness in us siblings 💗💙
     Teaching us such such great qualities,
     and raising us to always be there for each other no matter what!



     I’m thankful that those qualities have been permanently instilled in my sister!
    I thank God for my family every day in every way!!
     
    We are always there for each other no matter what!
     No matter the circumstances! 
    No matter the tone of voice! 
    No matter the amount of money in our pocket!
     Love at the end of the day is really all that matters!
     Being there for each other at the end of the day is all that matters! 

    So here I am now,
     driving in the rain with a lump in my throat,
    thanking God.
     Thankful as can be that even though sometimes I feel alone I am not alone. 

    One reason I do believe that God is always so good to me is 
    because no matter what, what anyone may think
     of my attitude, how I talk, how I look,
     whatever the case may be,
     I do nothing but good onto people.
    I have a good heart.

     [I’m not going to say I like everybody, but one thing I never do is mistreat anyone.
    You'll know I don’t like you but I’ll never mistreat you!]

    So I’m just thankful that we are close, that we have such great love you know!

     I may not always know what I’m going to do next,
     but like I said in the beginning,
     I don’t worry because God is always there for me.
     He always makes a way for me and it always works out in my favor.
    Mom always said
     "greater is later"
     It's not always good but it does get better!

    UNTIL NEXT TIME!!!
