The Power of Relationships

Good Evening my brothers and sisters in Christ. We are at the end of one week and the beginning of another. I pray you’ve spent your time living intentionally and with purpose. I had the pleasure of being one of the speakers at, “There Is Beauty In The Vision” women’s event yesterday. It was truly refreshing for those who attended. I believe the event sparked an activation for everyone there. It’s amazing how powerful you feel when you’re connected to the right people. In light of the women’s event, we’re going to talk about “The Power of Relationships.” As always I pray this post inspires you to self-reflect and make adjustments as needed. Blessings.

Relationships are defined as, the way in which two or more concepts, objects, or people are connected, or the state of being connected. We have relationships with our spouses, children, parents, friends, careers, ourselves, and God to name a few. In retrospect, some of us may have unhealthy relationships with some of those same people. Regardless, of the condition of our relationships, the influence is still powerful. Our relationships teach us to be loving, caring, dependable. Sometimes they teach us to hate, self-sabotage, or operate in sin. Our relationships can easily grow or kill us.

Relationships are so important even Jesus Christ himself desires it from us. So much so, if we don’t have a relationship with Him we won’t make it into the kingdom of Heaven. It was my lack of relationship with my parents growing up which activated a spirit of rejection. My childhood relationship with molestation which introduced me to homosexuality. My abusive relationship with men which activated spirits of substance abuse and self-medicating. It was my lack of relationship with Jesus Christ which gave the enemy free range to deposit whatever he wanted. My relationship with sin introduced me to selfishness, greed, lust, perversion, mental anguish, destruction, doubt, fear, torment, and disillusionment. It was my relationships that tore me down. However, when I fully gave my life to Jesus Christ it was the relationship with Him that built me up.

Maybe you’re like me. Someone who struggled through life trying to grow in the midst of unhealthy relationships. Not realizing some of those relationships we’re killing my hopes, dreams, aspirations, vision, growth, and purpose. Some of you have relationships with the hurt from the lack of connection you had with loved ones. Killing yourself with the ideas of them not being there for you as you’d hoped they would be. Don’t you know you have access to someone who will always be there for you?

When I started growing in God I was able to pull up the roots of every relationship sent to demolish me. Every seed deposited inside of me growing up had no choice except to come up and come out. I grew in the Power and Authority which was given to me from my relationship with Jesus. I was able to see the spirits behind those who afflicted me. I was able to reject their attacks. It is my relationship with Jesus which made me realize I didn’t have to hold onto the mental bondage of my past. I’ve been delivered and have the strength to freely share with the world what I once struggled with is no longer a struggle of mine. It was my relationship with Jesus Christ that showed me how to love me unconditionally. It showed me how special I truly was to my Father, God. It introduced me to a life filled with healing, deliverance, overflow, wealth, peace, power, focus, meaning, love, compassion, and purpose. The Power of my relationship with God completely transformed my existence.

If you’re someone who has lived a life full of unhealthy relationships I challenge you to no longer walk with them. Take a stand for you today. No longer will you willingly participate in your destruction. No longer will you allow demonic spirits working in others to deposit seeds into your mind, body, and spirit. The first step is choosing God. Make your relationship with Him your priority today. He wants your heart. Give it to Him and I guarantee you’ll never spend another day POWERless. Blessings!

Remember, if the relationship doesn’t grow you, challenge you to be better or push you towards God you don’t need it.


What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us,who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:
“For your sake we face death all day long;
    we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:31-39

Mindful Moment Interview Rewind

Hello my brothers and sisters in Christ. I pray you’ve spent the week living intentionally and with purpose. To all of my new followers, “Welcome.” We have a series on the site called, “Mindful Moment Features.” Mindful Moment Features is a one-on-one interview series where we get an in-depth look into the mind, heart, and spirit of God’s people who are living their purpose. We’ll get up close and personal with business owners, authors, educators, pastors, and much more.

Our last feature was with Author and Pastor Deborah Hampton Miller. It was such an impactful interview that I felt it necessary to Rewind. She is an ordained Pastor, Prophetess, Prayer Warrior, Wife, Mother, Author, Poet, and currently pursuing a Bachelors of Science in Psychology degree. In our interview, we discussed her first published book entitled, “Secret Sins The Ties That Bind.” We learned how God healed her from sexual trauma, showed her how to forgive her abusers, tear down strongholds, and ultimately break generational curses off her bloodline.

Here is the LINK to the interview. I’ve also included the audio, questions, and timestamps. I promise it will bless you. Click the LINK and take a listen. Blessings.

Spirit Care Sunday – What Does Your Spirit Need?

Blessed Evening my brothers and sisters in Christ. I pray you’ve spent the week living intentionally and with purpose. As you may know it’s Self-Care Sunday, however, I’ve decided to change it to “Spirit Care Sunday.” I was among the many people who were apart of the Bedside Ministry this morning. Lol. Tuning into The Potter’s House by way of Houston. Bishop Jakes spoke from the subject matter of “A Thirst Collision.” I encourage you all to check the sermon out as it has inspired the “Spirit Care Sunday” post for today. As always I pray that this post encourages you to self-reflect and allows you to open your heart to what the Holy Spirit is telling you. Blessings.

I want to start our conversation off with a simple question. What does your spirit need? Your spirit is the nonphysical part of you which is the seat of emotions and character; your soul. If you’re anything like me then this is the first time someone is asking you this question. When we look in the bible there are several texts that reference the spirit. Proverbs 20:27 says, “The spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord, searching all his innermost parts.” Romans 8:16 says, “The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God.” 1 Corinthians 6:17 says, “But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with Him.” John 4:24 says, “GOD IS A SPIRIT AND THOSE WHO WORSHIP HIM MUST WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH.” I believe it’s safe to say that our spirit needs to, has to, and should desire to be one with Jesus Christ.

So if our spirit needs Jesus then there are some things that we need to do in order to build our spirit man. We understand that coming into a relationship with Jesus requires the death of our flesh. This is why the bible talks about being born again of the spirit. When we are born again we have a new desire not of our flesh but of God. We no longer are controlled by our human inclinations. We have surrendered our spirit to Jesus Christ. Understand, He isn’t interested in fixing our flesh. There aren’t any parts of it that are salvageable. The only way we can get rid of it is if we let it die. This is why you can’t keep holding onto that person or that addiction because those things will kill you before you have a chance to kill them. We are talking about in the spirit. Anything or anyone that keeps you from God is killing your spirit. I don’t know about you but there are some people or something that you need to tell, “You’re Not Going To Kill Me.”

So again, “What does your spirit need?” The first thing that your spirit needs is for your flesh to die.


Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.[a
“How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!”
Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.

John 3:3-6

I pray that this quick “Spirit Care Sunday” post has inspired you to rid yourself of anything not like God. Each Sunday I will be posting steps to help you understand what your spirit needs. This is one of many to come. I love you with the love of the Lord. Blessings.
