“Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace” Psalms 37:37

Sometimes people misjudge others and think that their financial struggles are caused by poor financial management. Yes, that may be true in some cases. There are those who use their money to buy everything they want, then they ask for help to pay for what they need. However, there are people in this world who are where they are financially because they simply don’t have enough money to do what they need to do to get ahead in life. If they could pay down their debts they would, but every penny is needed to keep a roof over their head and food on the table to feed their children. They’re not poor because they’re irresponsible, ignorant or lazy; they lack opportunity, and if given the opportunity, you will watch them rise and go far.

I compare it to someone who has never played baseball, but they’ve been practicing their swing for years. All they need is a bat in their hand and they will knock the ball completely out of the park. God is going to give you that bat in your hand and that opportunity you’ve been waiting for, my sister. He’s going to give you the open door you’ve been praying for, and when He does, seize it! Show them that you’re not lazy, you’re not ignorant and you’re not irresponsible! You are the right woman for the job and you’ve been practicing your swing! You’re going to knock the ball out of the park!

People don’t know your situation, but they are about to see great manifestation of God’s glory in your life! Keep practicing your swing!

  1. Last night I was sharing with my husband about the times I would go on Job interview after job interview. In the beginning I was mad because I wasn’t getting any call backs , I wanted to give up. But I didn’t, I forgot what happened but my perspective shifted. Now I had the attitude that every interview I went on was practice for the actual job God intended me to have. So whether or not I got a call back didn’t matter as much as doing well in the interview. I figured any mistakes I made would be a learning experience for MY JOB. That mind shift really helped because I no longer was afraid or nervous when interviewing. With every interview I was practicing my swing and I became so good at it. For 3 years I only was able to work as a tempt through programs of the foster care system. All the while I was still submitting applications & swinging my bat!

    I feel like I’m in a new season of bat practice. Now married with two children & turning 30 in October I find myself wondering what’s my next? My husband and I have dreams of opening a non profit for youth. Right now were struggling to pay bills and keep food in the house. I’m believing God will turn things in our favor. We shall receive what we need . He will continue provide and sustain us . I will trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not to my own understanding . Thank you God for this word of encouragement !

  4. H A L L E L U J A H JESUS !!! Last evening I was sharing with a friend a need I have to move my belongings from NC, the financial situation I’m in and how I really didn’t feel like travelling down there. After sharing he paused and said to me, “I know you are not feeling the trip down and seeing to it that your things get moved, but change your perspective for a minute. God’s going to use something you’ve been working on up here to be opened up down there, that will make your travel needful and profitable.” My focus was on on the move only. I woke up this morning and Holy Spirit has given me a plan, one I have been working on here, so I’m going to SWING THE BAT. I will make contact with my former Pastor and friends. My financial need will be met by promoting my Book, “All Through the Blood-Forgiven to Forgive”while there. Look out Kinston, NC, HERE I COME !!! Thank you my Sister’s !!!
