World's Aids Day: "Don't Do It"

I dare not let this day past before encouraging everyone to get tested! The best way to protect yourself from aids is celibacy....

Enjoy this featured poem from my book of poetry entitled House of Poems

Don't Do It

Queen, you have the sex machine
Cause without it, there would be just pipe dreams.
Just because you got it, don't make it free
Brother so happy acting like he on a shopping spree.
But you my dear holding all the hurt scars
Cause you used your sex machine like an open bar
I'm just rying to get you to realize
Just your face alone will make a brother mesmerized;
And if you really want to hypnotize,
Make him wonder what you got between your big thighs!
Don't go give it away
Day after day
And you think it's cool because you made a brotha pay.
Ain't a price tag big enough in the world
That could pay for what God gave to His girls.
Even though you got the sex machine
Sistah all you need to do is keep it real clean
And when he says, "I want you"
And you stand before the preacher
And say, "I do"
And then you let him glean
In your sex machine.

Be Blessed and always Be Safe!

Stop Wasting Time

As I begin my journey to promote "His Mistress or God's Daughter", it is so important for me to tell my sisters to stop wasting time. Time is an element of the atmosphere that is truly not promised to us. We only had control of the time that has past and most of us were truly wasteful. What if God says, "Based on how you've spent you time in the past, I will determine how much time you have left on Earth?" Some of us would only have a second to live.

When it comes to relationships....get rid of those that aren't profitable to you because it's a waste of your time. You know what I mean! If you are a dating a brother who clearly states that he doesn't want a wife...let go, move on. If you're wasting time with someone who spends most of his time with his wife and kids...let go, move on. If you're spending most of your time covering bruises and scars from the one you're with...let go, move on. If you spend majority of your time arguing and cussing the one you're with...let go, move on. Why waste any more time trying to fix something that was broken from the start or that doesn't want to be fixed? Why stay in something, unless God says it, that you know is doing you more harm than help? And don't lie on God and say that He wants you to stay because you don't have the courage to leave.

This doesn't only apply to the sisters, it's for my brothers too. Time is so vitally conducive to our living because if I am still living, I still have time. Nevertheless, I don't know how much time so I had better use the time I have, wisely. Umm! I'm the greatest advocate of connections. I believe that God makes connections to advance us and to test us. I also believe that with each connection I should glean and pick up all that is good and leave all that is bad. I know that all connections aren't for life and some are just to get you through the season or to your next season. So determine what the connection was for and if it's done all it can do, stop wasting time, let go and move on. Be Blessed

The Kid You Help Today, Will Praise You Later

On yesterday we funeralized my great-aunt. Although it was a sad occasion, it was a blessed time. We celebrated her life with stories of all she'd done. It was amazing to see people come up one by one and everyone talked so candidly of how her house was the haven for kids. As I sat listening, I remembered when adults actually took out the time to nurture not only their children but someone else children. Can you remember when?

I just wondered if my aunt knew that what she did on each day would gain her the highest praise and embed a mark in each mind concerning her? One of her grands even read Proverbs 31. How awesome will it be to become that kind of woman? So I guess my quest today is to just encourage all women to be the best woman that you can be by helping a child. We already wear a lot of hats and sometimes we do get tired but we must be reminded every now in then, "Don't get weary in well doing because in due season we will reap if we faint not!" Wear all of those hats proudly and remember even if you never live to see it on this side, you will be praise in the gates!

There are millions of children who never get the love that they deserve and need to be nurtured into successful people. So many are in homes where parents try to show their love by what they've provided and just like in marriages....that doesn't work. You can show me something but sometimes I don't get the visual unto you use spoken word. You need to say it (I love you) as you show it. Today I'm challenging every person who reads this blog to help a kid somewhere, somehow. They are truly our future and who knows, if you help them now, they'll praise you later.

Be Blessed
In Memory of Doretha Lott

Here's some info about the kids I've decided to help:
They attend the Stephens Boxing & Fitness Gym in Shreveport Louisiana. This is a place where young males go to learn to challenge their energy into something positive. The goal of the "Road To Glory" boxing team is to become successful young men who are disciplined and fit for the future and not failure. If you'd like to contribute to my choice call 318-286-5491. All of your donations are truly needed and highly appreciated. To learn more go to www.stephensboxingandfitness.com.

The Joy of the Lord (Is our Strength)

Good Sunday Morning!
I woke up this morning grateful and thankful that the Lord allowed me to witness another day. We often take for granted the opportunity to breathe. Earlier this week, I experienced an asthma attack and as those of you who have asthma can agree, it's not too fun. I had to find something spiritual in what I'd experienced and I came to the conclusion that God allowed so I can see just how valuable breathing is. Because I know that there is so much in store for me, the enemy has been informed that..."No weapon formed against me shall prosper."

Now, I decided to grace you with this story because whereas I was fighting for another breath, one of my neighbors tried to stop breathing by suicide on yesterday. I first got mad because the devil thought he could send his demons this close to my house. So I prayed and now I know I must go into warfare for my surroundings. As I prayed for her, I was reminded of how awesome God truly is. Had it not been for the grace of God, I probably would have lost my mind this year. But God! So, I am praying that she and those of you who are going through grab a hold to the God that heareth, healeth, and holds us tightly in His hands. There is nothing too hard for God.

Yes, I can see how troubles can become too seemingly unbearable but thank God for the "But." Here is the "But"..."Cast your cares upon me because I careth for you." God cares for you and when you come to your breaking point, this is when you must pray. Some of us won't pray until we come to a breaking point! So guess what, we have them just so the Father that loves us so much can hear from us and know that we are still depending upon Him. In all that you go through in this life, you must remember my new and fabulous quote that God gave me..."Everyday is a new day to start a new life." No matter what yesterday handed you, today is a new day to change things. When we change our minds, we change our situations and maybe that's all my neighbor or your need; a changed situation. Remember that there is nothing too hard for God even if it seems too hard for you. You got to hold on to your joy! And you can find joy when you understand that if you praise God with renewed joy, God's joy will be your strength. Be Blessed.

Hello all my blog friends. I'm back and I have more equipment to fight the enemy with. These have been some trying months for my family but I believe that in order for the REVELATION that God spoke to become MANIFESTED.....We had to endure some suffering. I must tell you that the WORD (if you hide it in your heart) will keep you in times of trouble. Some days, the WORD was all we had and just like it was with GOD, it was with us.

It had been our constant prayer that GOD would purify us solely and completely and make us fit to fight for God's kings and queens. Purification came with life alterations and though some of them hurt, they have truly helped. We figured that if GOD designed a special task for only us to fulfill, our suffering broke off some things and some people in order that we may conquer our quest to do HIS WILL. GOD is perfecting and purifying the SAINTS to make us FIT for the FIGHT.

So as some of you may be going through right now at this very moment, understand it's just for who you will become. The you that GOD is perfecting, is the you that will usher in a life of peace, prosperity, and promise. So go through and when you don't know what to do....just Praise GOD, Pray to GOD, and then WAIT on GOD. Before being allowed to grace your situation, God already knew and you should have too, that not only is HE willing, but HE is able to bring you THROUGH!

Be Forever Blessed, Danyelle

The Power of Love

The power of love is so profound until it not only break down the barriers of miles; it searches as finds the connection by which it once fell away from. Love is the saturating, intoxicating, feeling that goes beyond the heart of the mind and connects to the soul of the one who loves. It invades the humans life and deepens, reconstructs, improves, and renews everything and anything that has to do with love.

Well why is love so powerful and why is it worth it? It's power came from the deeds of the Creator to love a world so much that He would give His only Son, and then is spread and displayed by a Son who hath shown the greatest of love; to lay down His life for a friend. So then love gains power in that any display of giving has a way of generating a likeness to the Creator by which we've learned that there's no restraints concerning love. It's worth it because without love we would be lifeless, selfish, and without the avenue of reconnection to a Creator who created us to love.

So it doesn't matter who you are and how much you feel that love has let you down, remember that because of love you have the distinct priviledge and opportunity to try again. Let downs that stem from love are vast opportunities to perfect love, test love, and helps one to re-evaluate the reason that they love. So no matter how many miles, how many people, how much negativity, love never fails and will always find it's way to the one who loves.

Hotel Hell

Hateful, wicked, lying deceiver
Adulterous, backbitter, unbeliever
Fornicator, false prophet, you thief
You'll perish cause of your unbelief.
Whoremongers, murderers, and all
Judgement time you'll stand a big fall;
Some of these things we've done
Thank God for His only Son.
Just because the Son was sent
Don't think that your problems are solved,
There's a bath that you must take with
Special events involved.
Don't you Go there,Hotel Hell, Don't go there!

You must first be born again
And old junk must be put out.
After a dip in heavenly water
You can begin to shout!
Your body is a bottle
That is being refilled;
There's redemption in His Blood
Ask God to do His will.
I plead you not to turn away
And die in all of your sins,
Hotel hell has plenty reservations
No money needed;Sin will get you in!
Don't you go there,Hotel Hell, Don't go there!

Get Saved & Be Blessed, Danyelle

Death Cometh: Will You Be Ready?

Every television station shows of the death of the famous. I'm really truly wondering if it's the reality that no one knew when death was coming or the fact that death came that has people the most shocked. Well, hear the voice of reason that says....death will come to each of us whether famous or never known. I am most certainly surprised when I watch the response of the death of someone with cancer versus someone who just drops their shell. It's like the cancer became the warning that death was soon to come and because of the warning, people are able to except it.

I'm blogging this today because I need you to understand that for you sake, know that no one knows when death will come to them. If we did we'd be able to live any kind of way and repent the second before death came and still be able to live again. In what we view as a perfect world this would be great but not so. We must not take advantage of the fact that God has given us right now. Life is so rewarding when we take advantage of the opportunity to consider that it is a gift and when we seek the giver of the gift, we better understand that our lives were meant to bring God glory.

Whether death comes by warning or quick, the question that truly and always matter and remain is...."Were they saved?" This word saved is a strange word with a tremendous matter. To church folks it means...did they go to church, but to real folks it means...did they get a chance to know their Creator, seek Him, know their purpose of life given by Him, and regard Him as the true and living Savior of the World.

I've had my chance to be around the saved and unsaved and I say to them both....CHANGE. To the saved we must remember to always guard our souls for an awakening enemy (sickness, hatred, sin, etc) seeks to steal or joys and belief. We must not allow the things around us to shatter the reality that when and if we drop our shells, our soul has a home not made by man's hands eternal in the heavens and the life we lived will and shall be the purest example of how God intended man to love, live, give, and grow. To the unsaved I ask...just what if you have the opportunity to live again? Just what if your belief in Jesus Christ is the one and only belief that will save you from an eternal destruction? Just what if God is truly real? Just what if there is a pit that will burn with fire that is the resting place of those who aren't saved? What if you allow the what if to penetrate your heart and you decide today to embrace the reality that God is real, He sent His son Jesus, God raised Jesus from the dead, and because of your confession by mouth and the belief in your heart...you shall be saved? Just what if it is my purpose to offer you what could be your last opportunity to believe and confess and you except it not, and die the next second? Just what if you except it and still die the next second? You'll never know until death comes and the saddest thing about death is that you can't come back to warn others.

Know What You're Asking For

I had to go to a church Friday night for a first lady night! It was so nice but the truth is, being a first lady is a hard job. Whether you are Michelle Obama or Danyelle Scroggins, if you have the title of first lady....you have a job. I know women who would love to be married to a preacher or a man of true distinction. Sometimes I wonder if they really knew what it was they were asking for.

I'm referring to the looking pretty at all times, going when you don't want to, socializing with people whom you wouldn't care if you've never met, saying "Yes", when you really want to say "Heck No", and oh how the list goes on. There is nothing easy about being the first lady of anything whether it's an official office or a church. You are truly required to do so much because to whom much is given, much is required.

Unfortunately, this is true in anything you're asking for. You had better know what it is you want and research the work that it involves. The old folks use to say, "Anything worth having is worth working for." Simply means that is you work for it you can have it and if it becomes yours, you have no choice but to work it. So to all of you who have gained husbands that require you to be his partner in every sense of the matter....work hard because if you don't, some jill come lately will be more than happy to take your place.

My prayers go out to all the First Ladies in the world. May God bless you richly and remember that your good works were already predestined by God that you should walk in them. And always keep 1 Corinthians 15:58 somewhere visible. Love you all

Be Blessed Danyelle

Graduation: A Time To Let Go and Let God

Jeremiah 29:11"I know the plans I have for you said the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

I'll never forget how I felt watching my first born walk across that stage last year to receive her diploma. Although it felt like a great accomplishment on both of our parts, it was also like loosing one of my very own. This is such a bitter sweet time for parents. You are so proud that your child is moving to the next level but at the same time your so worried. They won't be under your watching eye and no one will be there to enforce the laws you've created to help them perserve their integrity.

Nevertheless, we must remember that God plans far exceeds the range of our watchful eyes. He has a predesigned plan for your child and now He's the one watching them. It is always my prayer that Raiyawna "Mooney" remember God's word when she's away. My laws are disabled but God's Word is never changing. I tried to align my parenting with His word so in all, I pray that her understanding of His word will govern her heart, mind, and soul.

As you prepare to make the shift concerning you children; remember you never stop loving them as they meet new levels in their lives, you just change the strategy. You become parent-friend and you remember that God has a plan just for them. It's to prosper them and not to harm them and it's all about the next level in their lives for His glory. Good job parents, you've made it this far and God honors you for a job well done. Now, give the job back to Him and watch how your child grows into an adult.

Be blessed, Danyelle Congratulations Tyria We're Proud of You!

Walk In Wisdom

Have you ever just stopped? Sometimes it is so important that we just stop. Take a look at all that you are doing and evaluate your actions according to your purpose. I know, it's so easy to get caught up in stuff that don't matter! It's also so easy to get caught up in folks whose connection is more about getting more from you, than giving to you. That's why you have to frequently stop!

Stopping helps you to make a responsive decision. Notice when you stop doing what you do, those whom you may be handicapping by being you....will begin to make some things happen for themselves. Stopping also helps you to wait on revelation. You'll be able to hear from God concerning where you are and where you need to be. During your stop, it's a chance to forget about some things, and pray about everything. Stopping also allows you to operate in wisdom. You've seen that you have already wasted time and now that you know what doesn't work for you (for your purpose), now you can walk in wisdom. Wisdom helps you to realize that it was just a season for time wasting, people chasing, and tradition catering.....and after wisdom helps you realize the time waste, it's ushers you towards time management. Wisdom helps you to number your days!!!!! It also give you the confidence through faith to do something different. When you walk in wisdom, you decide to do things not according to how you use to do them, or how other folks taught you to do them, but strictly according to how God desires you to do things; according to whom He has purposed you to be.

Now to all of you out there, if you feel like you are just spinning your wheels, if you're tired of living the same ole way, if your purpose just doesn't seem to be clear.....remember to STOP! So here's the equation: STOP + PRAY + DIVINE REVELATION + FAITH + STEP OUT= A WALK IN WISDOM!

"If any of you lacks wisdon, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him." James 1:5Be

The Soul That Never Dies

I saw a corpse today that reminded me of a man I loved and knew but as I glared with tears in my eyes and pain stricken in my heart....I realize there lies the shell of a man whose soul shall never die. Not because he was such a good, kind, loving man but because he simply said, "Today, I asked the Lord to save my soul."

Words that will forever be etched in my memory along with the awesome things he did for me and my siblings growing up....words that will surely make me live each day a life in preparation for a soul that shall never die. Just on the other evening I had a dream about a deceased young man who while in the casket could find no rest. He turned and twisted as if he was fighting the sleep that was now upon him. I said in the dream why is it he can't find any rest and his mother answered and said to me, "Because he didn't prepare to die." I woke up in prayer because for the third time in the past year God has given me the same vision but a different person. I ultimately just said, "Lord, please save me and if for a lack of judgment on my part that I've forgotten to repent, please forgive me for my sins and restore me under the provision of your sacrificial grace and powerful mercy. Lord teach me to make wise decisions for each day and please save my soul so that when I sleep, I can truly be at rest."

Then folks, as I sat at the funeral today and saw a body that rested.....I heard...but what about those who aren't prepared to sleep. You know who you are and it is my goal and purpose to say to you this day...."Choose you now whom you will serve...will it be God or man?" Salvation is but a gift and it comes with no stipulations. You won't automatically do everything right, are turn into Mr. or Mrs. Goodie Two Shoe. Everyday with the help of the Spirit of God that dwells and empowers you at your first confession, you will become the manifestion of what God purposed you to be. You'll learn to live without some things, and to live whole heartedly for the right things. It takes time and a willing soul.

I fight the fight so strong and hard because it has been given to me to ensure that souls never die. So as you do, live, walk, talk, and breathe...do it with the certainty that your body is the house for a soul that will never die. Have faith in God, take care of yourself, believe in yourself, believe that all things are possible for you, repent for the things that go against the Word of God; the sins committed in your flesh, grow, learn, and remember always to pray. My lines of communication are always opened if you need information of giving your life to God through firm belief in Jesus Christ the Son of God.

Love Always, DanyelleIn Memory of Uncle Phillip Brown Jr. (Rest In Peace!)

She's A Survivor

I was truly honored that my event planning company was asked to host a "Survivor's" Party or Bash. It was in honor of my friend First Lady Gloria Smalls. It never ceases to amaze me at how diligently she's believed God's word through this entire process. You know somethings never affect you until they hit home and her being pronounced with cancer and then God healing her really took a toll on me. I first was in deep denial because she would always look herself. She was never complaining about pain or kemo and her hair was still healthy and full.

Then all of a sudden, she started to loose her hair and that's when it became real to me. I can't imagine what goes on in the mind of someone who has to loose their hair and even their breast or other parts but I do know that God is faithful. I've lost a few things on my walk (including some body things) and all I could do in the process was praise God because I didn't loose my life.Life is a valuable thing. When God gives us His breathe daily, sometimes we become ungrateful as if we are causing ourselves to breathe.

It's vitally important that we thank God for every breath and that we get busy. Whether you live or die, live or die doing the will of God; the will that was set in place for your life. Gloria was so happy to have all her family, friends, and folks around last night. You could see her will not only to survive but to do the will of God for her life, while she has life.

So to all of my sisters out there who has experienced that spirit called cancer.....Praise God that He is still a healer and find someone else to encourage. All sickness is not until death.....and some God allows to show you that you weren't really living. Now live and survive..the best is yet to come.I love you wonderful woman of GodDanyelle Scroggins

I know just when you thought you knew where I was going by the title, you'll see you didn't have a clue. Most of you think I'm talking about the sisters you gained by the parental structures and participants that God gave you at birth but unfortunately not so. Those, you didn't get to choose but the God Given Sisters that I'm talking about are the ones that God put in place and you just happen to choose His will, and in His will came sisters who are with you through thick and thin.I had the distinc opportunity this past weekend of bonding with a few women who God purposely set in my path to become my sisters.

There is nothing like conversing with someone who you don't feel an inch of envy towards or vice-versa. Someone with whom you can share all of your dirty secrets and never regret it. Someone who you can share what God is birthing through you and they're happy and ready to pray. This by far was so fantastic for me and I encourage you sisters out there to embrace your "God Given Sisters"! Just being in the company of these women made me forget about all the pitfalls with bad girlfriends I've had.

You know haters are born everyday but there's nothing like a woman who knows who she is in Christ and where she's going, and knows that no man or woman can stop her. So to all you sisters out there, know who you are so you can be the backbone for your God Given Sisters.

I love all of my "God Given Sisters", you know who you are and if there is anything that I can do for you, with God as my help......it will be done.Be Blessed Danyelle

How To Be Found

In "Not Until You’re Ready" I go through great lengths to establish the fact that women are not the finders but the ones who are suppose to be found. Nevertheless, this has seemingly be the number one unanswered mystical problem. In the corners of their minds, women are swamped with the question, "How can I be found?" So again here comes Pastor Danyelle to the rescue!

How often do you go to your church? Every Sunday? How often do you go to your job? Every day? How many times have you actually gone on a true vacation during your vacation from the job? See, this is where the problem is. So often Daughters of God your routine never changes. Didn’t Jesus change His routine every now in then? Remember in the New Testament when He used a boat one time, then He walked on water another time, then He rode in a donkey one time, and He walked several times. But get this, every time He changed His routine, He’d eventually glide along the path where someone was in need of His services. Think about it....if He would have stayed on the same path the whole time, He’d never been in the crowd just a touch away from the women with the issue of blood while on his way to raise Jairus’ daughter from the dead, He’d never seen four fishermen He called to be His very on disciples, or get this, He would have never seen Zacchaeus up in the sycamore tree.

Let me bring this even closer, If Ruth hadn’t never followed Naomi to her home, she would have never been gleaning in Boaz field. The man who later became her man and showed the kinsmen redeemer at work. So all I’m trying to say ladies is...MOVE AROUND! You can not expect to be found if there is no one available to find you. What am I saying? You’ve been in the same church all of your life, all the men are married, you’d really prefer to be found by a godly man who already attends service.....well, why don’t you visit other churches every now and again. I know you love your pastor and your church but just maybe your man is waiting on you to walk through the doors of His church because like you, he desires a woman that’s already attending church.

If you’re on vacation from your job, why don’t you take a vacation? You keep traveling in the same circles and sitting in the same place so, how can you be found? A woman that’s desiring to be found has enough sense to realize that her circle hasn’t yielded anything new. Why waste your time hoping that "Mr. It" gets a divorce from his wife? You’ve heard he’s having problems so you’re going to hold up your life waiting for a marriage that might not ever dissolve to dissolve. Get real sister. Get your butt up and MOVE AROUND!

Faith without works is dead. Work out your own faith by knowing that just because a husband is what you desire, God is going to give him. Then show God that you trust Him and His word by getting you together. Whatever is holding you back from getting in that find position, this is the time to get it right. Could it be that God already has him waiting on you and you are your very own holdup.

Let go of that past stuff and get ready, get ready, get ready! As the acclaimed Bishop TD Jakes would say. Now plan your next vacation, and get up and go to the Wal-mart thirty miles away. It won’t hurt the drive will do you some good. Go to visit other churches there just might be a Word and a Man waiting there for you. But please remember it’s "Not Until You’re Ready."

Romance the Right Way!

I had the distinc priviledge of chattering with some Christian women about marriage the other day. Some were really frustrated that their marriages never compared to the marriages they read about in romance novels or Christian fiction books. Today, most Christian authors are really dealing with real life circumstances and situations and I say, "Hats Off!!!" As a author, when the notion to write is made manifest and I begin to type away, I often think what affect will this writing have on the reader. So many women are reading and so many are wishing that their relationships would resemble those in the books....but they rally do.

Now the question is....Can they? Can a Christian marriage be filled with romance? Of course my answer is "certainly", but sometimes this requires more work on the woman's behalf. Yeah! Yeah! I know your saying, "But I'm tired, that's the only way I get romance....if I initiate it." Well, do you want it? It shouldn't matter who initiates it, just as long as your partner participates.

I've talked to many women who are Christians who've had affairs outside of their marriages. I ask the same question....."Couldn't you be getting that at home"? And I recieve the same answer...."Yes, but I'm tired of being the one with the great ideas". Well look at it this way...Even when you're cheating, as the woman you are probably the one who puts on a teddy. You are the one who cooks a delicate, delicious meal. You are probably the one who packs the candles although he has packed the wine. So as you see, it still takes effort. But isn't it amazing how when you are cheating, you rally need all the other stuff. That's because sin is so over-rated. There is just so much hype when you are sneaking around hiding....but guess what? You can't hide from God.

I think I'd rather ignite that same type of hype in my own marriage and be found righteous before God, than to risk being romanced by another man that's not my husband and dying on the way home from the romantic trip. Let's be real... the protection shield around you becomes fragile when you live a life of sin. If sin separates you from God, how can you feel protected when you're committing sin? Remember ladies, God made you a help meet and you can help your husband meet your needs by guiding him sometimes. Make things happen in your own home, with your own husband. You'd be surprised at how your husband misses the teddy, the champagne, and the things you use to do before you got married. Always remember things will get better but, "It's Not Until You're Ready!"
Be Blessed, Danyelle

It's Under The Blood

Hey Friends, it seems that those of us who have a dream and vision have been saturated with attacks lately. FYI.....the atmospheric demonic occurances that have been trying to stop you, detour you, and destroy you are cast down now because the Blood of Jesus has been pronounced over you this day.

All that has anything to do with you is under the blood. Such a blood can not only wipe away your sins and make you whole again....this blood covers you from the attacks of the enemy. It insures that the enemy can't hinder what God has perfected in you to come through you. This is the prophetic shout out to you today that IT'S UNDER THE BLOOD!!! Go through knowing that the Blood of JESUS covers you. Remember that Christ was lifted to draw you and His blood protects you in the times of trouble. Why? Because of the Blood, you yourself can go before the Throne of God with a humbled heart, lawless to cast all your cares, and request more of His grace and mercy.

Get up! Move through the course which has been set before you. PUSH, use your weapons ("For the weapons of our warfare are not carnel but mighty to the pulling down of strongholds!!!"), and know that nothing that is formed by the enemy to hinder, destroy, or stop you is going to prosper. Be strong in the LORD and in the power of HIS might. Remember right where you are is where God has allowed you to be, hang in there, and know that He is with you. Know that the Lord is going through with you and this is the time when you are closest to Him because these are they (the things, the people, the circumstances) that have caused you to pray. I love you all, Danyelle!

Thanks Steve Harvey

Hey Ladies, Looks like Steve is going around telling women what I've been preaching since I got delivered. So if by chance you are still stuck in a meaningless relationship or a sinful relationship go ahead and buy his book!!! After you read his, then pick up "Not Until You're Ready." See, he breaks it down in a mans voice and I share with you from the voice of spiritual revelation.

So often women, we have found ourselves in relationships that don't merit or equivalate to whom we are and whose we are. But God!!! God is now using a famous comic and radio talk show host to bring women back to who they are. See, his message is you have the best gift on earth and if you hold to your standards, men won't have a choice but to except what you give. My message is you are the daughter of God and if you become so saturated in God's will for your life, and prepare yourself as His daughter, when you are found the man that finds you will be able to love you as Christ love the church and as he loves himself.

"Husbands love your wives, even as Christ also love the church, and gave himself for it; So ougth men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:" Ephesians 5:25,28-29.

As a daughter of God you deserve nothing less than to be loved like he would love himself. So many women have excepted being liked and not love. He likes you enough to pretend that your goodies are so good, while he share his goodies with your next door neighbor, and declares to his friends that you both are just his friends; he loves the woman across town who has his three children. And with this, you can see that she's not love either because if he loved her, he wouldn't be spreading himself all over town. But just as Steve says that women have the power to prevent this, I totally agree. If you flee fornication, you won't have to worry about getting played because when that brother leaves you, all he has is a word from the Lord and encouragement to be saved!!!!

That same chapter of Ephesians ends with a word to the wife....."and the wife see that she reverence her husband." How can you reverence a man that's not yours? How can you reverence a man that does not love you? Most importantly, How can you reverence a man who does not reverence God? Steve might can't say it like I can because he has to be universal in his speaking but I can be spiritual and universal because I'm not looking for sales. I'm trying to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Woman of God, we have got to live our lives and do all we do in this body as unto the Lord. Know you not that your body is the temple of the HOLY GHOST!!!!!

I've found that "Not Until You're Ready" is a book that you either like or hate. Those that hate it, hate it because they are not ready to come to grips with who they really are and who they belong too. So why don't you buy Steve's book? Hear it from a brother. Whether you know it or not, it's still God going into Satan's territory and snatching His daughters out.
Be Blessed, Danyelle

Happy Valentine's Day

Hey all my single sisters out there, don't let the activities of this day make you depressed or covet what someone has. This is the day when you have the distinc priviledge in telling God how much you love Him. And of course, you already see the provisions of His love, not just on this day, but every single day you open your eyes.

Look at this: "There is a difference between a wife and a single woman. The unmarried cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit. But she who is married cares about the things of the world---how she may please her husband. And this I say for your own profit, not that I may put a leash on you, but for what is proper, and that you may serve the Lord without distraction." 1 Corinthians 7:34-35

How awesome is that? God specifically sets a couple of scriptures in His most Holy and Divine Word to speak to just you.....Single Woman. He cares so much about you until He wants you to see the beauty of being without a mate. You are at the point in your lives, like I once was, and this is where I truly found and built a standing relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. No one controlled me praying all over the house, LLOOUUDD!!! I laid before the Lord whenever I got ready. My praise and worship music blasted as loud as I wanted it too. I said all this to say....take advantage of being single. Get to know the Lord and yourself. If you desire a husband, this is the time to make your request known before the Lord. Show Him your faithfulness. When you become faithful before God and to God, He'll began to prepare you to be faithful to one of His very own sons.

So this day, my sister, is the beginning of your love relationship with God and yourself. Learn to love and show love in your every day walk with Him. As you began to love yourself, you won't except just anything....you'll await that with is pure, perfected, and allows you to give a good report. LOL Danyelle

Happy Valentine's Day to my married girls as well. You might not get anything today because to some of your husbands, his provision is a well unspoken jesture of his love for you daily. And get this...I'd rather you show me daily your love for me in how you treat me than to treat me aweful and buy me a diamond necklace on Valentine's day. Let's be real, it happens. So you too, should say to your own self....I Love You Girl! Whether it's a day of gifts or just another day in the neighborhood...Thank the Lord you were around to see it. Now as you find more ways to please your mate, don't forget that you follow him as he follows Christ and if you can, bless God for the awesome man He chose to love you on Earth! LOL Danyelle

You Don't Have To Be Old To Live Right---Help Desk

To those of you who think being saved is about being old---I beg to differ. Being saved is about coming into the knowledge that you believe in the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and that your desire to be a CHRISTian is now evident in the life you've decided to live. We make a decision to be called CHRISTian and with this decision the requirement is that people can see CHRIST in you.

When I was younger, I thought only old folks had to have their lives right and be living right because they were closer to death. I know that might sound childish but when I was a child, I thought like a child. Now that I'm old and have grown up, I have put away childish thinking. With that, I understand that death has no age. I also now know that death has no affect on the believer. Death to the believer is life, when we are in Christ. (READ: 2 Corinthians 5:1-21)

It is my heart's desire that young people would give their lives to Christ. Remember good deeds can't get you in heaven, it is your belief. Nevertheless, doing what is right is better for us when we stand before the judgment seat of Christ. I would just like to compel our youth of today to do what is right. There's a book by Charles Sheldon called "In His Steps". I read this book when I was in bible college for the first time and have since shared it with some teenagers. I believe that this is a great resource for teens to put them on the track of doing what is right.

We must all stand accountable for what we do but if we help those who are younger than we through guidance; maybe we'll see a change in our youth. So to all of you who know to do what's right....do it.

It's A New Day

As I sat and watched our 44th President being sworn into office, my soul was over-joyed. I couldn't help but think about my grandmother, the late LB Ford and how she managed to make it in Shreveport, Louisiana during the turbulant times of segregation. I can remember the stories of how she would go down town Shreveport to WoolWorth and had to enter in the back. I couldn't help but think about how she felt when the late great Dr. Martin Luther King came to Shreveport.

All the struggles for such a time as this. But in as much as I am grateful, I still feel uneased when I go into a restaurant and our caucasion counterparts will look you in the face but never speak. I still felt the agony of the past when my child was stopped in Shreveport by one of our caucasion police (for nothing). So to me although today marked a landmark event, I still know that there is so much more needed in Louisiana.

Then I think about my kids who grew up military and was taught to love everybody regardless of the color of their skin. And I silently pray that my son won't date any of those white girls at the private school he attends in Shreveport. Not because I don't want a white daugther in law, but because I don't want my child thrown in jail for rape or labeled because of his preference. So, how do you explain this to a child...that he has to be careful who he dates because of where he lives and the color of his skin? I guess, you just teach him history and pray that he doesn't silently hate others because of what his ancestors went through.

In a world of change, I wonder why old morals or habits refuse to fade away. I wonder why some still find it hard to love others because of their skin color. Could it be that God has allowed more interacial dating so we can get the picture of how He feels about us? We all are a part of eachother. It's evident in our history and the pages of mine read candidly about a grandma named Dina who never knew a black man but bore children from her masters. So as you see, nothing is new under the sun; but the Son simply is trying to get us to see that we all are His children.

As I watched all the people in Washington, I thought about a place that will resemble much of what we saw today. Everyone existing together, on the same accord, and with feelings of true admiration towards a man, but it won't be President Obama we will be waiting to hear, but we'll be waiting to hear the voice of a man name JESUS. All together regardless of our skin color or gender but solely upon the merits of our belief while we were on Earth.

So as our country embarks upon something new, we should try to embrace something old but still able to mend people together.....LOVE. Try loving outside of your circle, outside of your family, and outside of your churches. Try loving inspite of what is done for you, or how you feel. Just love because love covers a multitude of faults and loves meets the needs of others through service.
Be Blessed

Is It Ever A Good Idea To Divorce---HELP DESK

I pray that we learn to work out the differences in our marriages instead of divorcing. Jesus said Moses put divorces into affect because of the hardening of man's heart. You know that heart that fails to forgive. People make era in decisions and so do you. Stop thinking that just because God has delivered you from something that your spouse is delivered to.

Sometimes the greatest thing that married people can do for one another is pray for each other and pray together.Now, sometimes divorce is only the most logic solution if you're life is in danger. I believe that you should be living in PEACE! It's bad enough when you don't have peace on the job and then come home to a home where there is no peace.

Sometimes people divorce for selfish cold hearted reasons. They don't even really realize why they left and they go get married to someone else and take that garbage into their new marriage. It is totally possible to be still in love with someone else but married to another. It's sad but it's true. You'll never give your all in a new marriage if you haven't resolved issues and feelings from an old marriage.

So is it a good idea? Sometimes it may be a necessary idea but no matter what kind of idea it is, just repent. Why am I repenting? You're repenting because if you would have consulted God in the beginning, you wouldn't have had to get a divorce. So the sin comes in when you marry for your own selfish reasons. Be Blessed

Sex Outside of Marriage---HELP DESK

Is it ever a good idea to test the goods before you marry the person? No! There is such a stift punishment for sexual sins because it goes against the spirit on the inside of you and your temple's stance as holy. I'm sorry for those of you who like the moments of feeling good but have become num to the shame afterwards. You know when you first started in those sexual relationships you use to get in the tub and try to scrub the dirt off. It's not that sex is a dirty thing, because there is a beauty so spiritual in the ability for two to actually be one in the flesh; but it can be a sinful event when it's not the proper time- and with sin, comes shame. And often the shame only last until our minds are turned reprobated....and we believe that we can do whatever we want because it's our body and we're grown.

Just stop! You wonder why you feel like knocking someone in the head with a bat....maybe it's because the last person you slept with was so seeded in anger and had murder so deep in the walls of their heart, and now you are infested with those spirits that rode in the person you slept with. Or you wonder why you're a female looking at another female and you aren't gay--maybe the person you were last with had a spirit of homosexuality that has now invaded your body. I know that might be deep, but I can go deeper. The fact is when you become open to sin, it opens the doors for spirits and spirits my dear are real!

When are we going to learn that some things are just not meant for us to do in our timing, but rather given by God as a gift--to those who have excepted the spiritual connection of marriage. Will it be when people start dying with aids to the point that there is no cover up? See, I'm convinced that our children don't believe that aids and other sexual transmitted diseases can kill you. Why? Because when do you ever read in the paper that Sis. Such and Such died from aids. I only know two people through the media that has actually been said to have died from aids...... Everyone else, it's "they died from kidney failure." Our kids need to know that people are dying everyday. You are just one bad decision away from having a sexual transmitted disease.

I don't promote condoms because I don't promote sex outside of marriage!
There is no such thing as safe sex......to the contrary their is a such as God protected sex. I've even known married people who are living with a spouse who has contracted HIV and the spouse are fine....That's because God protects and He honors marriage.

I'm hard because I was there. Having sex for no reason at all. Because unlike men, most women don't mature to get the full arousal or know what exactly their bodies can do until in their late twenties; so sex becomes more of his pleasure and her duty. It was but the grace of God that I made it without becoming a victim of myself, due to my inability to just say NO. So now, I come against ever lustful spirit that is reading this blog right now in the name of Jesus. The blood of Jesus is against you and my brother and sister is free, right now!!!
Matthew 26:41 "Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."

An Awakening Day

Today was filled with so many mixed emotions for me..... 1st I went to the funeral of my second grade teacher Ms. Helen Horton. Ms. Horton wasn't your average second grade teacher...she was the kind of teacher-mother combo that you'd love to hate but couldn't. With her mean demeanor she spoke volumes to a disobedient child; but with her gentle merciful hands, she showed love to a loveless child. I shall never forget the day she told me, "A young lady must always have integrity." I didn't know what integrity meant...what second grader would have. Nevertheless, all my life I've been on a quiet quest to embrace integrity. She had a pinch that would make you upright, and when you were good, a smile that would display pure delight. I'll fover keep her memory in my heart and in the way that I live....with integrity!

Then it was off to my book signing. As I sat there I thought about all the teachers that nurtured the writer in me. We should be grateful and celebrate educators all over because without someone teaching us how to read and write, there would be no authors.

I was so honored to be in the presence of so many who have embraced my spiritual quest to openly reveal my life, so that some young woman, somewhere will be healed. I was told today that our young men won't change until our young women change........I do believe that the strength of a woman will encourage a man but how can she change when she doesn't know how. The answer is always and most certainly....JESUS! So as the book was purchased and I signed every copy, I prayed a special prayer that JESUS would arrest the reader and allow this book "Not Until You're Ready" to break the strong holds that are in their lives.
So as it is I've awaken to the reality that life is but a vapor but with the same awakening I understand that it's up to me to make the most of the vapor! "Teach me Oh Lord, how to number my days upon the Earth."
Be blessed always

Preparing Yourself For Newness of Life----Help Desk

Hey you know the word of God says that you can't put new wine in an old bottle. So how can you put fresh ideas and new plans -or- new relationships and new spouses on top of all that old junk you have stored in the trunks of your heart?

Think about it: When you purchase new winter wear, don't you get rid of last years? Yeah I know, you keep pushing them towards the back of the closet just like you do the junk in your heart. Sooner or later the closet pole begins to weaken and then eventually, it breaks. Sounds familiar.......you had so much stuff in your heart until it began to weigh you down, and then finally there you were or still are, BROKEN. It would be so much easier if you just threw the old stuff out. ("Lay aside every weight and sin that so easily besets you!")
God is so faithful that He's even willing to get rid of your old stuff, if you give it to Him. So as you see, we don't just hold on to old material things; we hold on to old emotional hurts and God is waiting on you to throw it out.

Take inventory of this...Philippians 3:13-14 "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before." Now that's the first half....Get rid of the old junk; forget the past. Now here's the second part..."I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." Now the second half is....Press forward! As you press in your purpose, you'll see that there's an award in Christanity. New life brings new blessings. When you empty your vessel from all the junk, God will replenish you with newness of life......new ideas, new love, new adventures, new activities, new plans, etc.

So get prepared for newness of life, by 1st getting rid of all the old stuff, second, by declaring and decreeing that your life will never be the same, and third, by allowing the Word of God to replenish, reconstruct, and renew you.
