Unintentionally Inspiring

Good Afternoon my brothers and sisters in Christ. Guess what? I’m doing a mid-week check-in with you guys. I know you’re used to my Sunday post, but I like to switch things up sometimes. I pray you’ve spent your week thus far living intentionally and with purpose. I was having a conversation with my husband this morning, and he said something I felt would inspire you. Taking into consideration our personal conversation I will share my takeaway versus the actual ins and outs of what we spoke about. As always I pray it causes you to self-reflect and adjust where needed. Blessings.

I started my relationship journey with Jesus Christ a little over a year ago. From this journey of “self-mastery,” my company was born and so was this blog. Growing in Christ I started thinking and processing things differently. I understood the way I lived my life accompanied by the mindsets I learned from people were my default setting. Ultimately, they weren’t how God intended me to operate. Needless to say, I grew. I developed new habits, new mindsets, new processes. I began operating my life with more intent and purpose. One thing I do often is daily self-evaluations. Asking myself several questions. Is what I’m doing growing me? Is it pushing towards God? Is it challenging me to be better?

Even when it comes to my level of influence I find myself always surveying. Asking am I helping grow the person I’m in connection with? Am I pushing them towards God? Am I challenging them to be better without being overbearing? One thing I’ve learned is when you begin changing who people know you to be they notice. They silently watch, wait, and take note to the newness of you. Some of those people will meet you at the level they’re comfortable at or rise to the occasion of new discovery. It’s up to us to evaluate the value they bring and decide if we’re able to provide them with our new found value.

Whether someone gives you accolades about your growth or not you have to know they’re watching. You have to know God has attached certain people to your ministry, your purpose, and your life. Delay in your growth places a delay in theirs. So how can you be of influence? Easy! Never stop growing. Never stop challenging yourself to be better. Never stop seeking direction from God. The way we live our life has three effects on people we’re connected to. It will keep them stagnant, set them on a backward spiral towards their default setting or push them into greatness. Which role do you want in the lives of those connected to you?

To be “Unintentionally Inspiring” means choosing to live your life at a level of greatness for yourself; causing people to be inspired enough to go after their own greatness. Yes, I made that up. Lol. It’s what it means to me. Before I am anything to anyone I have to be everything to myself. People who knew me can’t recognize me now. They aren’t supposed too. We all should be at a constant state of evolving. Every day I make it a point to be better than the day before. Every day I’m challenging myself to do something I haven’t done. Learn something I didn’t know. I encourage the people in my circle to strive for greatness for them, and not for anyone else.

I challenge you to ask yourself, “What role do I want to have in the lives of those connected to me?” Do you want to keep them stagnant, set them backward, or push them towards greatness? The way you choose to live your life determines the role you will serve in the lives of others. There’s no escaping it. Whether you want to or not you have the power of unintentional influence. There are too many people watching you. So choose to be GREAT. Blessings.


“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”

Matthew 5:14-16

Mindful Moment – God Can

Great Morning my brother’s and sister’s in Christ. This week is coming to a close. I pray you’ve spent your time living intentionally and with purpose. This morning I want to leave you with a thought. Think about the most outrageous goal you have. Really think about it. For some of us the goal may be to have a globally successful Christian business. Others it may be traveling the entire world or becoming the largest resource for women to find their God given purpose. No matter how far the reach of our goals is know that God’s abilities surpass our grandest thoughts. He reaches places we can’t imagine having access too. If you’ve ever limited the idea of where you can go, who you can be, or the influence of what you can do. I’m here to tell you, STOP LIMITING GOD. He takes us where we can’t go on our own. He already placed the best version of us inside of us. He told us He made us in His image. His word says, “we rule over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.” Which means we came out the womb with authority and influence.

I challenge you to retrain your thought process. When you’re connected to Jesus Christ you’re connected to the ultimate source. There’s nothing too hard for God. Next time you pray do it with authority. Decree and declare (whatever the outrages goal) it’s mine, I shall have it, it belongs to me. Remember, God CAN. Blessings!

Don’t Let Your Ego “Edge God Out”

Good Evening my brothers and sisters in Christ. I pray you’ve spent the week living intentionally and with purpose. Can you believe January is already over? How are you guys doing with your 2019 goals? Have any adjustments happened with your vision for this year? They have for me. Lol. The overall vision is the same but the path in which it’ll happen has slightly changed. With thirty-three days in the books Yahweh has already slowed me down. Many of you know I finished my Vision Board a week or so before the new year. My goals cosisted of growth in my relationship with Christ, my marriage, my brand, this blog, and a list of other ventures. The more I attempted to reach these deadlines that I set for myself God was directing my attention to the journey that has to happen before I reach the destination. I guess you can say my EGO was getting the best of me.

I was listening to a podcast the other day and the guy referenced his EGO getting in his way. Now I’m not someone who relishes in my own accomplishments. All glory be to God for anything that he has strengthened me through or allowed me to obtain. As the podcast continued he mentions that a pastor told him that when we have a big EGO we are essentially “Edging God Out.” #MindBlown Had I Edged God Out in my bedazzled Vision Board and 2019 Goals? Couldn’t have I thought. I mean He is in the midst of every goal that I have for this year. The more I talked to Yahweh about it He began to reveal to me how my EGO was getting in the way.

Even though my vision was from God I didn’t account for the time needed to prepare for the vision. I started the process but had no expectation of the next steps which left me doing what I thought was necessary. I was leaning on my own understanding. Even for God’s glory. I found myself making all these plans that glorify God but in the same moment, I was edging him out of my preparation process. There is nothing in this world that we will do that doesn’t require seed, time and harvest. If God has planted a seed in you there is no skipping the “time” that is needed before the harvest.

In due season, what is planted inside of you will grow. Continue to allow God to cultivate you through the process.

Maybe Christ has given you a vision to write a book, start a credit repair business, an apparel shop, or become a life coach. There is absolutely no way to bypass the necessary journey that you have to take in order to flourish in your God-Given area. There are levels that require our participation as we are on our journey to becoming who we were created to be.

You can find preparation thorughout the bible,

“Put your outdoor work in order
    and get your fields ready;
    after that, build your house.”

Proverbs 24:26

So what’s the takeaway? Start. God has given you a vision for your life then start. Start the process and allow Yahweh to guide you through each and every step. God isn’t our phone a friend when we are stuck. His place is in front of us before we even make the step. I spoke about being in the process of writing my first book. I had the opportunity of attending a Master Class that focused on “Writing Your First Book & Self-Publishing.” I learned so much that I had no idea about prior to taking the class. The knowledge was necessary as I journey to becoming a first-time author. Don’t allow your EGO to Edge God Out of your preparation process. Blessings.

Create! Just remember to include Christ in the process.

Update: I went to a Christian Women’s Bible Study last night and it truly was a release for me. I really underestimated how much I missed being able to fellowship with other Women of God. Right at the end, they asked us to write down what we were hearing from God. He simply told me, “Go and be free TRULY Tiffany.” It was as if I still had a spec of my past self in my heart and in that moment Yahweh released me from it. Glory be to God.

Also, I just booked my first speaking engagement of the year. I am so honored and excited about the event. The subject, “There is Beauty in The Vision.” What a befitting topic. Details coming soon. Love you with the love of the Lord.
