Why My Husband is Not My Daddy

Within the first week of marriage, I called my husband “Daddy”. At that very instant, it felt like someone had reached past my belly button, and pulled onto a string connected to the deepest part of me. It felt like blasphemy, but something in my mind convinced me that for some reason, I deserved to call him this. I could tell my husband was in slight shock. Two contrasting emotions welled up within me… part of me, at that moment, was reminded of the omniscient Being, Almighty God, who had proven Himself to be my Daddy throughout my life… the other part of me wanted to forget that this name was reserved for Him, and dwell in the flesh, in the tangible. I never had an intimate relationship with my natural father. I came into marriage with subconscious desires, to make up for my past. Weeks passed and I continued calling my husband “Daddy,” when I wanted to feel loved and childlike. When my husband called me baby, I took it in so many different ways. I took it romantically, but it also took me to another place that I had never gotten to experience as a little child.  The pitch

A Command to All demons and a Prayer for All Believers!

WARNINGS!!! PRAY FIRST. BEFORE PRAYING, MAKE SURE THAT YOU DON’T HAVE ANY SEED OF UNFORGIVENESS OR ROOT OF BITTERNESS IN YOUR HEART. Prayer: Father in Heaven, I thank you for this day. I thank you for Your love, grace, mercy, and protection. I thank You for Your truth, and that I don’t have to live in fear of what the enemy has planned against me. Daddy, I thank you that Your thoughts towards me are awesome and pure. Heavenly Father, I thank you for having plans to prosper and not not to harm me, but plans to give me hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11). You are so good God! Daddy, this day, please forgive me for any sin I may have committed, for I have forgiven all those who’ve trespassed against me. Remove from me anything that is not like You and please give me my daily bread in place of it. I am so grateful for my portion. Thank you for Your everlasting and unconditional love. Please give me your grace Daddy. I plead the blood of Jesus over myself from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet. I thank you Lord that no weapon formed against

The Difference Between Coveting and Admiring!

Lately, I’ve realized that coveting has become one of the most prevalent struggles that many of us deal with today. We spend hours and hours upon social media, looking into the lives of others, reading blogs, and staying “connected” even though we never really know what others are REALLY going through.  I’ve dealt with this area myself, and God had to show me my own heart concerning this issue. The bible clearly speaks about coveting as a sin. It even says in Ephesians 5:5, “For this you know, that no fornicator, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.” Many times when we look down upon sin, or focus on the fornicator, the murderer, the alcoholic, etc. But in God’s word, things such as coveting and idolatry, the matters of the heart, are just as evil as sins committed in the natural. I mean Jesus even says, “But I say unto you, that whosoever looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart.” (Matthew 5:28) When I was single, I admired people. People who lived boldly for God, women who respected

How to Trust God When It Doesn’t Look Like God

We trust God when it looks like things are working out. We trust God when we can see what He’s doing. What happens when things aren’t working out? What happens when we can’t see what God is doing and we’re searching for answers and can’t seem to find any? Do we stop trusting God? No honestly. These are some serious questions. Many of us may be quick to say, “yes I trust the Lord at all times!” But when push comes to shove, we’re the first ones running to God saying, “Where are you God!? What are you doing?” I understand how it feels to be in this place. It’s a natural part of human nature to be fearful at times. The truth is, sometimes your life situation won’t look like God, and many times, they aren’t God but that does not mean that God can’t use those situations, and turn them into something better for His glory. What do I mean? You may be in an unhealthy relationship and it looks like hell. Your life may be falling apart, and it doesn’t seem like God has your back. You may have thought you lost everything. Loved ones may be dying

You’re Too Busy: Closed Doors Not Opening – Part 2

So, many doors have been opening up in my life recently. I’ve been invited to speak about my book and I’ve been getting more clients for my business, but I can’t help but realize that these opportunities came forth simultaneously as I let others go. Before getting to this point, I would question God’s timing. Lord, “Is this really your plan?”, “Lord, why is this not happening?”, “Lord,” “Lord,” “Lord!” Come to find out, I was prolonging these opportunities from coming about. How so? I was too busy for God to open up these new doors for me. I had a million and one doors opened already, and two out of three of them were opened by me. I forced my way into doing things because I couldn’t be still and know that He is God. I couldn’t be patient and just focus on cultivating what He has given me already. I was growing weary, carrying a larger portion than was meant for me to carry, just so that people can look at my portion and see that it was big! Can I be real with you? I just had too much going on, a lot of things, plans, and

What it Means to be a Queen

I had a dream a few nights ago and I don’t usually share my dreams but I learned so much from this one! In my dream, there was a royal ball happening. My husband was the king, and I was the queen, but it was also like a pageant. All these women were at the ball competing to take my place as queen and marry my husband. So during the interviews, these ladies, dressed up in these fancy ball gowns and evening dresses, would go before my husband’s throne and tell him why they would make a great wife to him. I couldn’t see their faces… I had to serve at their feet, so I was on my knees picking up scrap pieces of paper from around the throne. I looked up at the throne to see if the woman’s eyes had captured my husband’s. But to my surprise, he was slouched in his chair like he didn’t wan to be there, and he was looking right back at me. This was during the last interview and around the time I had just about finished picking up the scrap pieces of paper. Then the interview was over, and the next

You’re not Ready: Closed Doors not Opening! – Part 1

You have this goal, this aspiration; there’s something you want to achieve, something you want to come to pass. You wonder why things aren’t working out. You wonder why you’ve failed time and time again. Well, you weren’t ready, and you didn’t know it. You’ve heard the saying, “What God has for you is for you” and that’s true. But, you can miss out on what God has for you if you lack patience, self-control, and wisdom. Sometimes we sabotage what God has for us because when He tells us “you’re not ready,” we choose to go forth without dedicating time to any preparations or true growth. The “you’re not ready” signal can come in many forms. You know that the Lord is telling you, “you’re not ready” when you are learning that you didn’t know. Yesterday my husband taught me something. He said that the process of knowing is a cycle. First, you don’t know that you don’t know. Next, you find out that you don’t know. Then, you know that you know. Lastly, you don’t know that you know. He compared it to a kid learning to ride a bike for the first time. The first time the
