Millennial Madness: Women Proposing To Men Is This A Thing Now?

 

 

So I posted this photo on our Instagram and the conversation exploded. There were many different views, but I want to dive a little deeper into why I think women should not propose to men. My views have nothing to do with whether it is right or wrong but rather a question of whether you want to build a relationship on a foundation where the woman takes the lead.

The Power of The Blood Of Jesus through Millenial Eyes Part 1 w/ I AM QUEEN Magazine

The Bible must be taught in a way that is practical for everyday living. Many people don’t understand how to make King James relevant to their lives today. The Message bible does a great job at breaking the Bible down in a language that we all can understand. But it still speaks to us through the lens of people who lived over 2000 years ago. The Bible declares, “They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony…” – Revelation 12:11. Simply put, we have the ability to overcome anything by the blood of Jesus and by the testimony of those who have walked through difficulty in victory. This is why it is so important that you share your testimony because there are people whose life depends on it.

In this first part of, The Power of The Blood Of Jesus through Millenial Eyes, we will focus on the importance of pleading the blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus is a technological system that invokes real protection and provision for our lives. It’s a proactive measure used to create a spiritual barrier around the things and people it was directed to.

How To Discover Your Gifts

Prayer copy

This week we are going to talk about understanding your gifts and callings. Many people are sitting on the isle of uncertainty because they don’t understand who they are. Understanding who you are helps you to gain clarity on why you are here. We have all been given gifts and abilities that were designed to assist, dismantle and build up ourselves and others.

So, how can I identify my gifts?

Get in touch with the child in you.

When we were kids we had great faith. We believed we could do anything and most times we are more in touch with who we really are. Because of the limited experiences, children gravitate to those things that come easiest to them. When I was a child I said that I wanted to become a Best Selling Author and Fashion Designer. However, as life would have it, I was told that those professions were merely hobbies and that I needed to find something more grounded and serious. I became a Police Officer and it was liberating at the beginning but soon it felt like bondage because my gifts were fighting to come out but as a Police Officer, I wasn’t able to embrace it.  Fast forward, 14 years later I have written 5 books and I am a 3x Amazon Best Selling Author. I am also working on my clothing line. I am no longer a Police Officer and I’m finally doing what I said I wanted to do in the fifth grade.

Funny how childhood me seemed to be smarter than adulthood me and I believe it’s because children live in the arena of possible – they just believe. They have faith that makes no sense and it doesn’t matter how many times they fall they continue to try and try again.

Pay attention to the thing that makes you angry!

We all dislike something, whether you hate seeing injustice or children hungry, use that anger as a navigation device to point you in the direction of your gift. Your gift is the answer to a problem, so you naturally become angry at the thing you were designed to change.

You do it effortlessly.

It’s the thing that others find difficult to do, that you do so effortlessly. Because you do it so easily you believe that everyone else should find it easy to do but they don’t. It’s that thing that you take for granted. You don’t think it can truly make you rich, because it seems so simple. But that’s the thing that God wants to use to elevate your life, but obedience is the vehicle that will get you there.

Many people dismiss their gifts because they lack the educational background in that area, not understanding that the person who was taught to do it can not contend with someone who was gifted to do it. You don’t learn your gift, you perfect your gift. If you are going to school to learn a gift its not your gift. You can learn a skill- you cannot learn a gift because a gift is freely given.

Now write down all the things you said you wanted to become as a child. Then write all the things that make you angry. Finally, write down the things that you do effortlessly and find the nexus between everything that you’ve written down. What are the things that are recurring in all three areas?

Many of you may have multiple gifts so leave nothing out. After you’ve narrowed down your list take it to God in prayer and ask him to confirm what your gifts are and he will answer you.
