Fight for your dreams 

~ Never ever give up, no matter what

When talking about fighting for your dreams and believing in yourself and never giving up even when you fail over and over and over again all you Gotta do is you have to get back up again and fight for your dreams, your destiny and everything that you believe in because it will come to pass with great perseverance, consistency and focus.

 Now let’s look at the life of Abraham Lincoln for example it teaches us a lot about fighting for your dreams . Abraham Lincoln fought for his dreams that even when he failed he never gave up until he achieved his dreams.

In 1831, Abraham Lincoln failed in business.

In 1832, Abraham Lincoln was defeated for state legislator.

In 1833, Abraham Lincoln tried a new business, and failed.

In 1835, Abraham Lincoln’s fiancée died.

In 1836, Abraham Lincoln had a nervous breakdown.

In 1843, Abraham Lincoln ran for congress and was defeated.

In 1848, Lincoln ran again, and was defeated. Again.

In 1855, Lincoln ran for the Senate, and lost.

In 1856, Lincoln ran for Vice President, and lost.

In 1859, Lincoln ran again for the Senate. He was defeated.

Then, in 1860, Abraham Lincoln was elected President of the United States. 

He never gave up no matter what he failed at or whatever odds were against him he persevered and fought till the end and won you can do it to.What matters most is not how many times you fail, but that you never stop trying just like Abraham Lincoln did. Always fight for your dreams till they become a reality. 

~Stay focused and persistent 

Even when everything seems to be against you and you can’t see your way through keep trying and fight for your dreams don’t give up or lose your focus because the enemy will always use your weaknesses against you to hinder you , distract you from fighting for your dreams.

The only reason why we fail it’s because of broken focus . Lack of focus will kill your dreams before they are even born. When you lose sight of your dreams you will never achieve them. Stay focused and patient in your season. Be consistent in your dreams and fight for what you believe and you will achieve it.

~Do let your age limit you from achieving dreams.

Sometimes we tend to complain about our age and think that maybe we are too old or too young to pursue our dreams but age is just a number but your dreams are in you and alive, they want to come out but you have let your age hinder you from pursuing them. It doesn’t matter whether you’re 6 years old or your 20, 30, 40, 60 , 70 years old or older, as long as you have a dream inside of you and believe in it 100% you will achieve it. Do let your age limit you from achieving dreams. As long as you have breath in you , you can achieve your dreams.

~Don’t let the lack of money hinder you from fighting for your dreams.

Most of the time we have talked ourselves out of pursuing our dreams because we didn’t not have the resources to back up what we believed in and that has stood in the way our destiny. Don’t let the lack of money hinder you from fighting for your dreams. When you keep fighting  for your dreams the right doors will open up for you. The more you walk into your destiny God will open doors of financial breakthroughs and opportunities will present themselves to you if you do not give up so quickly .

~Don’t allow negative words spoken over you hinder you from fighting for your dreams.

Even when everybody doesn’t see what you see don’t let them discourage or distract you from dreaming, don’t let their words distract you from believing in your dreams and fighting for them. 

The enemy will use your haters , the naysayers to try to sabotage your destiny but the more they do that keep on believing in your dreams even harder. Don’t allow negative words spoken over you hinder you from fighting for your dreams.Use their words as momentum to prove to them that you can do what God called you to do.

You can do it and you will achieve all your dreams in Jesus name. Believe in yourself and never give up no matter what.

Stay inspired and motivated and dream big

God Provides!

And my God will supply all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19.

Do not give up do not throw in the towel whatever God promised you He is going to provide. God is faithful to His word to you and He always fulfills His promises. He will always provide for you no matter what because He is not man that he should lie.

Have you been going through a dry spell in your life?, has your life been turned up and down, have you been disappointed over and over again?. Have you lost all hope in your dreams and your goals and you feel like nothing is ever going to happen for you?. 

Psalm 119:89 says, “Forever, O Lord, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens. Your faithfulness endures to all generations; you have established the earth, and it stands fast. 

 In John 6:35, Jesus said, “I am the bread of life: he that comes to Me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on Me shall never thirst.”

So whatever dry spell you have been under don’t give up because God will never give up on you. In Him young will never go hungry or thirst again. He is going to see you through and you are going to come out of this season stronger, better and wiser because God is turning every bad thing that ever happened to you for your good because He alone is faithful always to His promises.

So whatever you do not have, whatever your need is ask God, trust in Him, believe and He will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory. 

In Matthew 7:7-8, He promises, “Ask and it shall be given you; seek and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you. For every one that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened.”

So don’t be anxious for nothing because if God can take are of the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea how much more will He take care of you His beloved child. Be encouraged today and know that God’s got you and He will never leave you defenseless, He will always come to your rescue. It might not be in your timing but in God’s timing because He always shows up on time and at the right time. 

 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Mathew 6:25. (Let this be your mediation verse this week when ever your feeling anxious about anything).

Stay motivated, inspired and empowered to purse your dreams and never give up.

God of the second chance

From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the Lord his God. He said: “In my distress I called to the Lord, and he answered me. From deep in the realm of the dead I called for help, and you listened to my cry ,You hurled me into the depths, into the very heart of the seas, and the currents swirled about me all your waves and breakers swept over me. Jonah 2:1-3

When Jonah was in the belly of the fish he thought he was going to die, he thought his future was over, he didn’t not think he would survive that situation but God saved Jonah from death because His a God of second chances and beyond chances.

Some of you might be going through a similar situation as Jonah did and you think it’s over, you think your going to die, your thinking your dreams will never come to pass. Whatever is dead in your life God is giving you life again. It’s not over , God is giving you another chance to start over again and again and fulfill your destiny.


Has your hope in God been fading, do you feel like you can’t go on. Do you feel like you’re not worthy because of what you’ve done and what has happened in your life, are you doubting who God has created you to be and wondering whether you ever going get a chance to live and fulfill your dreams, well I got good news for you, God is a God of a second chance, He will never desert you no matter what you have done, His arms are open wide to you and He’s here to give you a second chance because he will never deny you. 

God has a plan for your life more than you know. I don’t know the story of your life or where you are now or what you’re still struggling with but God knows.

God is mindful of you and He hears your prayers and whatever you have prayed for God is going to bring it to pass, you might not have the answers right now but God’s delays or not He’s denial his timing is perfect.

No matter how many times you fall God will never give up on you. Trust him and get up again. Jesus says in Him you can begin again, hope again, dream again, love again, win again, live again and prosper again because His a God of the second chance and beyond. What was dead in your life is a live again today in Jesus name.

Your love is Loyal

From the raising of the sun to the going down of the same God’s love is loyal. Many times that you have fallen short, God’s love has always been there for you. Even as you take a minute and reflect on your life and how far God has brought you from you will realize if it was not for God you wouldn’t have made it this far.

Psalms 36:5-9 (The Message bible) God’s love is meteoric, his loyalty astronomic, His purpose titanic, his verdicts oceanic.Yet in his largeness nothing gets lost; Not a man, not a mouse, slips through the cracks. How exquisite your love, O God! How eager we are to run under your wings,To eat our fill at the banquet you spread as you fill our tankards with Eden spring water. You’re a fountain of cascading light, and you open our eyes to light.

Do you have Aha! moments when you think about how God’s love has always been constant, unconditional and loyal even when you where not loyal to God. His love for you has never wavered not matter what you have done. God’s love for you is not measured by your actions because He is all knowing God , He knows our actions before we act but He loves us anyway.

When i look at my life and how far God has brought me from i can’t help but say thank you Lord ,I have many Aha! moments where God’s love for me has surpassed my understanding. He has indeed been faithful to me, loved me unconditional. His love for me has always been loyal. He has always been there for me anytime i have needed Him and i believe He has been there for you to.

To anyone thats reading these writings from God’s heart to yours and you are wondering if God loves you, the answer is yes yes and yes, He loves you. Even before you where in your mothers womb He loved you then and still loves you now, God has never changed His mind about you.

No matter how many times you have felt unworthy, less than and the many nights you have cried yourself to sleep, Gods love has never left your side and His not planning to leave you now. Trust in Gods loyalty you will always feel loved because you are indeed loved by God.

Whenever your world falls apart , you feel misunderstood ,confused, lost, overwhelmed, depressed or anything that has stolen your joy, smile and innocence, i want you know God’s love is constant, unwavering , faithful, He will never leave your side , You can never out run His grace for you, trust Him today. No matter what you  are going through you are safer in His arms, He will never let you break, nor leave or never forsake you. His love for you will always forever be loyal.

Stay encouraged, motivated and inspired!

FEAR IS NOT YOUR MASTER

Many times when we have a promise from the lord and we are excited about the future and we are hopeful about everything in our lives, then fear creeps in like a bug and tries to distract you so you can lose focus of your purpose and destiny.

1-15

When we look at the story of David in the Bible he overcame Goliath, who was feared by everyone in the land and know one stood against him and survived. The Israelites feared the Philistine Giant because he seemed to be Invincible. But until David believed in Gods power to destroy the giant goliath that had inflicted so much fear and pain on God’s people, He destroyed goliath and the people of Israel where not afraid but believed and trusted in God. David went to battle with Confidence because he went to battle with God as the source of his strength.

 1 Samuel 17:32-47 “Master,” said David, “don’t give up hope. I’m ready to go and fight this Philistine.”Saul answered David, “You can’t go and fight this Philistine. You’re too young and inexperienced—and he’s been at this fighting business since before you were born.” David said, “I’ve been a shepherd, tending sheep for my father. Whenever a lion or bear came and took a lamb from the flock, I’d go after it, knock it down, and rescue the lamb. If it turned on me, I’d grab it by the throat, wring its neck, and kill it. Lion or bear, it made no difference—I killed it. And I’ll do the same to this Philistine pig who is taunting the troops of God-Alive. God, who delivered me from the teeth of the lion and the claws of the bear, will deliver me from this Philistine.”Saul said, “Go. And God help you!” Then Saul outfitted David as a soldier in armor. He put his bronze helmet on his head and belted his sword on him over the armor. David tried to walk but he could hardly budge. David told Saul, “I can’t even move with all this stuff on me. I’m not used to this.” And he took it all off. Then David took his shepherd’s staff, selected five smooth stones from the brook, and put them in the pocket of his shepherd’s pack, and with his sling in his hand approached Goliath. As the Philistine paced back and forth, his shield bearer in front of him, he noticed David. He took one look down on him and sneered—a mere youngster, apple-cheeked and peach-fuzzed. The Philistine ridiculed David. “Am I a dog that you come after me with a stick?” And he cursed him by his gods.“Come on,” said the Philistine. “I’ll make roadkill of you for the buzzards. I’ll turn you into a tasty morsel for the field mice.” David answered, “You come at me with sword and spear and battle-ax. I come at you in the name of God-of-the-Angel-Armies, the God of Israel’s troops, whom you curse and mock. This very day God is handing you over to me. I’m about to kill you, cut off your head, and serve up your body and the bodies of your Philistine buddies to the crows and coyotes. The whole earth will know that there’s an extraordinary God in Israel. And everyone gathered here will learn that God doesn’t save by means of sword or spear. The battle belongs to God—he’s handing you to us on a platter!”

Goliath represents that thing in your life that you are afraid of , trials & tribulations, a need, a hinderance,obstacle, that mountain that is standing in the way of your destiny. Only God can destroy the giant/ the Goliath in your life and grant you victory over every area in your life

As you have been going through life you have encountered a lot of challenges that have shaken the core of your faith and caused you to be afraid of your destiny. You are afraid to dream again, to love again, to hope again, to believe again and you have just settled for what is less than because you don’t want to have hope again and have it crushed al over again.

1-14

You heart is overwhelmed  and hurt and you as so afraid and you don’t know how to fix it. But i got good news for you  God wants to set you free today. His king and lord over your fear, so don’t allow fear to be the master over your life. His giving you power over your Goliath today. When you trust God you will overcome anything that seemed impossible. Trust in God’s strength.

When fear becomes the master over your life , it will control your destiny, your life, your dreams and your mind will be control by fear (devil) and not by faith. And the result of it will be destruction, pain and misery.

The bible says… For we walk by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7

Don’t allow the Goliath in your life to win because God has given you power over your goliath, by faith you have the strength to destroy your goliath, fear, pain , lack, sickness & disease have no authority over you.

The Bible says no weapon formed against you shall prosper And every tongue which rises against you in judgment.You shall condemn.This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,”Says the Lord.             Isaiah 54:17

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF-3

I want to encourage you right now trust God with your Goliath, He will give you the power within to destroy and overcome the giants, the fears in your life,  just like He gave strength to David to defeat Goliath. Don’t allow fear or the Goliath’s in your life hinder you from pursuing your destiny and become the powerful woman or man God created you to be. In Jesus name ,you have the power and dominion to overcome anything that comes against you. Fear is not your master ,God is and He has great plans for your future and that is to prosper you and give you hope for the future.

The battle belongs to God, tonight God is giving victory over the giant that has been tormenting you for years. It is finished!, You have the victory today, Receive it in Jesus name.

Stay motivated , empowered, and inspired to never give up on your dreams and purpose no matter what. Be blessed.

Believe in yourself

when God created you He gave you purpose and that purpose needs to be fulfilled. All you need to do is believe in yourself, whether you fill like it or not. Not everyone is going to believe in you, your dreams or your destiny ,so its up to you to believe in your self, dream big, don’t put limitations on yourself .

God has never limited you, so why limit yourself from achieving that dream inside of you and fulfilling your destiny. You have it in you, so don’t you dare be afraid and leave in fear. Remember fear is the enemy of your dreams and destiny ,don’t allow it to creep in and destroy that which God put in you.

 For example Taragi’s dad knew acting was her daughters calling. One day he looked at her and said how do you expect to catch fish on dry land . So Taraji P. Henson Took A Chance On Hollywood With Only $700 And A Dream and believed in herself and stayed focused and now she is one of the best actresses in hollywood and she has gone to win many awards. Taraji continues to say “ you just have to stay the course and not getting distracted or compare yourself to others. you have to really stay focused  and stay grounded.

Taragi P Henson

Taragi P Henson won Golden globe

 

When you believe in yourself and not compare yourself to other people’s success and stay true to who you are and keep God at the center of it all you will achieve your dreams.

Do you know what God has called you to do?, what’s your dream? and what are you doing about it.

Nothing will ever happen if you are doing nothing. Many times we get lazy over our dreams and destiny and except that somebody is going to do it for us and help us fix it. But that’s a wrong mentality. You have to believe in you and chase your dreams, if you are not sure about What God has called you be ask him to show you what your purpose is and He will direct your path to your destiny. Many times we are not asking the right questions.

I challenge you today to believe in yourself, don’t compare yourself to others, stay focused ,grounded and trust in God’s plans for your life, don’t doubt or be afraid of your destiny.

It’s possible to achieve anything you put your mind to. The bible says you can do all things through christ who strengthens you. So dare to believe in yourself, if Taragi P Henson can do it you can do it to. Most of all God believes you can do it.

Stay motivated ,inspired to be who God created you to be.

Love Antoinette

 

Every seed you sow has a purpose

Every seed you sow in your life has a purpose. What kind of seeds are you sowing?, Is it positive or negative, is it good or evil, is it flesh or spirit. The kind of seeds you plan to sow in your life do really determine the outcome of your destiny.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.Galatians 6:7-10

Many times when you get caught up in old patterns that have not been working for you look at the root cause of the situation, you will able determine the out come. Could it be you have not been sowing the right seeds.

SEEDS SOWN IN THE FLESH

The bible says when you sow seeds in the flesh you will reap corruption. Here are the examples of flesh seeds you need to avoid sowing…Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these;

  • Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Galatians 5:19-21

SEEDS SOWN IN THE SPIRIT

The bible says when you sow seeds in the spirit you will reap life everlasting. Here are the examples of spirit seeds you need to sow….

  • But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Galatians 5:22-25. 

God’s plan and purpose for you is to walk in the spirit for He is spirit. Do not walk in the flesh because in it you will inherit darkness. God chose you to live a life that is pure, kind and pleasing in his sight so that you can inherit His kingdom. You were chosen to be a blessing, when you sow blessings you will reap a blessing.

So i encourage you today to sow in the spirit and reap life everlasting in Jesus name.

A grateful heart is better than murmuring, complaining & worry

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 

free-bg

Give thanks to the lord everyday, no matter what trials or obstacles you might encounter, God is king over anything you face, nothing is too difficult for Him to fix or provide. If your feeling anxious, worried right now shake it off and start thanking God for the season your are in, instead of complaining about it and worrying about it.

bigstock-free-happy-elated-woman-with-a-48006797Once you start thanking God ,He is going to turn your life around and bless you, you will have a new perspective that is kingdom, you will start to walk by faith and not by sight because you are trusting God to guide your path, trust me when i say this with God you will always win no matter what is thrown at you.

Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain. Philippians 2:14-16

Man comforting to a woman isolatedThe bible clearly states and tells us to do all things without murmuring or complaining because first of all its a sin against God . It shows that we are not grateful for what the Lord has done in our lives and another thing it hinders God’s blessings in our lives.

So many times the difficulties and struggles of life many overwhelm you and you feel like the world is against you , you feel like God has forsaken you, you feel like giving up, and a lot of fear and anxiety starts building up within you.

Close up of young couple fightingYou find yourself asking these questions why God is blessing other people other than you, you ask when its going to be your turn and then the flesh kicks in and you start complaining about all that is wrong in your life instead of being grateful for what God has done in your life.

I want to remind you that seasons come and go but Gods word is truth, He is not man that He should lie, when He says something you better believe He will bring it to pass. God’s timing is the best not your timing. He is always faithful to His word. Many times you have given up on God and His promises but He has never given up on you.

Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

God’s love for you is unconditional , He is not driven by emotions, situations or problems. His GOD, His above all things and still His love remains the same from everlasting to everlasting.

1-7So do not worry about situations and how things are going to work out in your life, it might be a financial problem, sickness or disease, marriage problems, parenting problems, an a addiction, a need, or loss of a loved one..extra, Just know this in the midst of this storm this to shall pass, God has not brought you this far to forsake you now. His all knowing and He feels your pain and His going to see you through this and turn you ashes into beauty.He loves you that much. Trust Him.

God says in his word, Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:8

1-8He says in every situation be grateful and give thanks. Whether your feeling it or not give thanks, in season and out of season give thanks, whether happy or sad give thanks, whether laughing or crying give thanks, with money or without give thanks and watch God’s blessings and favor pour on you like a gashing river flow in Jesus name.

So i encourage you today to give thanks no matter what your facing and remember this Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. Psalms 30:5

Your Destiny is calling 

Whenever you find yourself asking these questions… Lord what have you called me to do, what’s my purpose, I really want to do your will and I don’t know what to do and where to start?

Just know destiny is calling. It’s in the asking, it’s in the desiring of something greater and seeking that you will find your predestined purpose that will lead you to your God given destiny.

Habakkuk 2:3 “For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay.

In the beginning of time when God created you He put purpose and vision in you . So that when you grew up you would be able to walk in that vision and fulfill your destiny.

But many times the enemy has tried His best to try to destroy you, steal from you and robe you of your destiny. You know the devil is afraid of who God created you to be and He knows your destiny is great.

That’s why the devil is working so hard to distract you, kill your dreams overwhelm you with doubts, fill you with so much fear that you end up being afraid of your destiny.

The devil has used people to speak over your future by saying things like you will never make it, your not good enough, you will never achieve anything because your family has never achieved anything and the closed you in a box of their negative mindset and you have ended up wearing that mask of lies from the devil and it has affected you from dreaming again, hoping again ,believing again.

Are you in a dead state of mind and the future does not look possible and the false labels they put on you have killed your vision, your will power to dream again and walk into your God given destiny.

The devil is a liar, John 10:10 The devil comes only to steal and kill and destroy; God came so that you may have life, and have it to the full.

So if that’s you and the devil has robed you of your joy, your will , your power and your worth. God is saying it’s not over, Iam the God who created you and you are beautifully and wonderfully made by me.

You are who God says you are not what man says. Your destiny is blessed you are going to achieve everything your heart desires and what your dreaming about because greater is He that is in you than he that’s in the world.

With God on your side your dreams are possible, you will achieve your goals , you have a bright future a head of you , you will achieve the impossible says the lord. Everything you have gone through was meant to get you to this place stronger, mature, bold and confident to achieve and fulfill your destiny.

So wipe away the tears and be encouraged in this Psalm 30:5 weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. 

Every sacrifice, every pain and hurt, every mockery and humiliation you have faced in this journey of life , you are not alone God has been walking it with you and His still with you. None of it is in vain. It’s worth it because God is turning your mess into a message, His giving you victory  and releasing His blessing in every area of your life.

You where born for such a time as this to fulfill your destiny.
