Dressed For Success: Prayer

Pray at All Times Many times, I have turned on the TV to just unwind, but at the end of the evening it feels kind of empty and did not have the result other than numbing myself from a busy day. The result that I got little to nothing accomplished. I felt bummed because I filled myself up with just stuff while my good books were sitting on the shelf. I know for a fact that if I would have read from even on of my books it would have been a much more fulfilling evening. According to the A.C. Nielsen Co., the average American watches 3 hours and 46 minutes of TV each day (that’s more than 52...

Dressed For Success: Rhema

Rhema Until recently I thought that in the armor of God, the sword was the written word of God, the Bible. I believed that the sword was the Word of God and that it was the Bible we used in how to fight our battles. By memorizing it, reading it and contemplating on it and to use it as a book to turn to for answers. But this is only partially true; this weapon is much bigger and grander than that. “Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of GOD.” –Ephesians 6: 17 The sword of the spirit is God's Word but not in the way many people assume it toda...

Dressed for Success: Helmet of Salvation

Helmet of Salvation Now days the relying on the natural is the norm. But in God's world, it is the super natural that is the normal. When we start living from GOD’S perspective instead of our own we start entering in the super natural and this is where people start seeing God alive in their lives. While in the bank, I noticed a teller had their head down on the desk, as if taking nap.  I greeted her and ask, "Are you okay?" Instantly, she turned her head to look behind her to see if the other employee that looked like a manager had noticed. "My head hurts, it hurts all the time." I offer...

Dressed for Success: The Shield of Faith

The Shield of Faith Words Matter and Have an Impact My mother in law called. She asked to speak with my husband. “He is on motorcycle trip,” came my reply. She recalled his motorcycle accident and responded: “Has he not gotten over that yet?” In this moment I went wrong. I received her words, “I agree and I don’t think it is safe to ride a motor cycle.” Hours later Ken came home and half an hour we argued about motorcycles. I did not build up my husband. I received words from another and responded by what was in my heart. Nelson Mandela said: “It is never my custom to use words lightly...

Dressed For Succes: Righteousness

Breastplate of Righteousness Stand in Your Forgiveness “Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness” - Ephesians 6:14 When I committed my life to Jesus, a huge load fell off my shoulders. The freedom and joy came so sweet and pure. I was forgiven. I recall my mother noticing and saying. “How come you are so happy all the time?” I am forgiven and I am free and stand in that freedom! When I recommitted my life to Jesus, again I had an incredible joy and freedom.  Again, the joy, peace and freedom felt amazing. To pu...

Dressed for Success: Truth

Open, honest communication saves marriages. Out of nowhere a couple of nights ago, my husband brought up a private issue we had not discussed since we remarried in 1996. Our avoidance offended Ken. Even though I felt I had the right at the time, the past remained stagnant and in place. Like a fish tank in need of cleaning, our avoidance further dirtied the water. Judgement, criticism, and anger put a curse on our marriage. Satan knew it. He used it against us time and time again. He took advantage of this elephant in the room for over 20 years. Ken’s honesty opened my eyes.  I prayed t...
