Love Never Fails!


A person can tell you everyday how much they love you. If their actions don’t match their words then you know how they really feel about you. In a relationship, you will hit some “bumps in the road.” However, a God-centered relationship will flourish. It is never harsh, hurtful, or degrading. When you love someone, you don’t want their heart broken. You will do everything humanly possible to resolve the problem. The Word of God teaches us what genuine love is:
1 Corinthians 13:4-13 (my favorite scripture)
Love is kind and patient, never jealous, boastful, proud, or rude.
Love isn’t selfish or quick tempered. It doesn’t keep a record
of wrongs that others do. Love rejoices in the truth, but not in evil.
Love is always supportive, loyal, hopeful, and trusting.

Peace Be Still

Good morning family and friends,
Start the week expecting prayers to be answered. Never give up on God because He will never give up on you! Meditate/pray every morning and always give thanks in the midst of your storm. He knows what you are going through and all He requires from you is trust. The storm will rage and when He knows you are ready to receive the blessing, He will whisper “Peace be still.” Have a blessed week!
From the heart,

I Don’t Need Your Approval

No one can make you feel important but you. Stop seeking approval from others; know who you are and do not allow anyone to shake your confidence. Look in the mirror everyday and tell yourself that you are worthy, beautiful, important, loved and a reflection of God. The more you say it then at some point you will believe it! Don’t forget to take care of your mind, body and soul!!!

From the heart,

My Sister In Need-Morning Prayer

Good morning everyone,
I want to lift up every woman who feels lost, unloved, rejected, broken, at wits end and in toxic relationships.

Gracious,All-Knowing God,
I come this morning standing in the gap for my sisters who are in need. You know every hair on their heads because you are the Creator. I ask that prayers are answered and heavy weights are lifted so that the sun will shine again in their lives; dry their tears because you said “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.” I pray for peace in the midst of every circumstance they are facing; you made the wind and the waves behave so there is absolutely nothing too hard for you! Let the love that we have for you, radiate and uplift a sister that is in dire need of peace, love, finances, freedom, forgiveness and restoration. We thank you for covering us with your protective shield. Dismiss us from this prayer but NEVER from your Holy Presence.

From the Heart,

Unto Us A Child Is Born…Happy Holidays

Even though we don’t know the exact day that Christ was born, we are grateful that he sacrificed his life for the sins of this world/mankind. So, I personally  want to take the the time and acknowledge the birth of the Savior. The three wise men went to Bethlehem and gave baby Jesus their most expensive treasures because the King of Kings was born. Happy birthday to my intercessor, wonderful counselor, and  prince of peace. Because of you, grace and mercy has been granted to my sinful soul. “Glory to the highest, peace on earth and good will towards ALL men.” Happy birthday Jesus!

Happy Holidays to each of you from Relationships Start With You! Whatever denomination you are affiliated with the one thing we have in common is our belief in God. I pray for prosperity, healing, love, forgiveness, grace and mercy for each of you. May you be elevated in your “going out and coming in.”

Blessings to you and the success of your business in 2013!

If I Can Help Somebody…My Living Shall NOT Be In Vain

I wrote this to a friend:

Diane, you continue to walk by faith! What God has for you is for YOU!!! All the imps, critics, naysayers, backstabbers and liars can’t block God’s blessings. My mantra is ,”when one door is closed, God ALWAYS opens MORE doors.” There is a business/company that needs your expertise. Pray for your enemies and allow God to deal with the rest! Praying for you!!!

My additional $.02:

God has to move us sometimes because we will set up shop at these jobs. We MUST understand that He has a greater purpose. He promised us that He would supply our needs and he asks that we trust Him and do not lean to our own understanding. Does it get uncomfortable? Absolutely! But, DO NOT GIVE UP ON GOD!!! Man will fail you. These employers are not your source; they try to make you THINK they have power over you. NOT!!! Again, God will deal with them; you forgive and move on! God is the vehicle, captain, pilot, Alpha and Omega!

“No place, person or condition is your supply.”

Yes, I am on a roll!

Last year, January 14, 2011, God healed my body. Since then, I’ve had gall bladder surgery; I was diagnosed with pneumonia and was in the hospital in Houston, TX. from last Tuesday to Saturday. I flew home tonight. Do you think for one minute that I buy into the notion that I am NOT healed? NO! I trusted man with my livelihood and feared the worst all the time. When I could not wipe my butt, walk, talk or feed myself, I had to look up to God! He healed me! He restored me! He made me whole!

After 14 years of teaching, I was told that I was not a “good fit.” Those who have worked with me, KNOW that I was a caring and compassionate teacher who had skills!!! Yes, I got angry at the beginning. Then, I remembered WHO I belonged to and each day I went to work with love and forgiveness in my heart; I taught with everything I had until the last day of school.

Then, God placed Relationships Start With You on my heart. He chose me! So, I am starting a new phase in my life and I am excited; I will not look back because it is the past.

Why worry? Don’t you know God is big enough to see you through?

Okay, you may pass around the collection plate!

Love ya’ll!!! Goodnight!
