Here Comes the Dreamer

Then they said to one another, “Look this dreamer is coming”. (Genesis 37:19KJV) The story of Joseph in the Bible is found in the last part of Genesis starting with chapter 37 where he received a dream from God. It is a story of intrigue and high-drama. The story is filled with plots of murder, deception, betrayal, seduction, false accusations and then ultimately victory over evil. It all started when Joseph was born as one of the youngest sons’ of Jacob. Joseph was Jacob’s favorite child, the son of his old age. He gave Joseph a beautiful coat of many colors. This created jealous from his siblings. Joseph was a special child and had an amazing call on his life. God planted a dream deep within him that he would one day have great authority and reign over many, even his own family. He would be royalty. He shared his…

Dream Big: The World is Waiting on You

Many of us have dreams bursting inside of us that have never been realized. All of us have a specific purpose on earth. Are we living our purpose? Are we living our dreams?

Dealing with Procrastination: Take Action and Move Forward

In the first chapter of my book, “I’m a Dream Girl: A Guide to Fulfilling Your God-Given Dreams” I start with Dream Killers. There are many things which hinder the dreams and visions that have been placed in our hearts a long time ago. I talk about procrastination as a dream killer early on because if we continue to delay and not move forward nothing happens. Procrastination is a symptom of a much deeper problem. We often wonder, why do I always wait until the last minute to get things done? Why do I delay? Why do I miss deadlines? Why do I not accomplish the things I have in my heart and on my list? Is it merely poor time management? Or is there something else going on? As a nurse of over 30 years, one thing I have been taught over time is, treating symptoms makes the patient…

Taste and See that God is Good!

I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth... Oh, magnify the Lord with me and let us exalt His name together. Oh, taste and see the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trust in Him! There is no want to those who fear Him. (Psalms 34:1, 3, 8-9 New King James Version) The Psalmist, David, got personal with this, didn't he? He said, “I will bless the Lord; His praises will continually be in MY mouth..." Let us all strive to get personal with the God of the Universe this year. Let us enter into a place of worship we have never been in before. After the Psalmist got personal, he invited others to experience what he experienced. He said, “Oh, magnify the Lord WITH ME and let US exalt His name TOGETHER..." When we worship God privately, He gives…
