Are You Ready for Accelerated Blessings?

“Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life that I might take it up again. No man taketh from me, but  I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.” John 10:17-18

In the above scripture, these are the words of Jesus. As Christians, children of God, these words can and do apply to our lives as well. The bible tells us that greater love has no man than a man lay down his life for a friend. We lay down our lives but we also have the power within to pick up our lives and start anew.

So…are you ready to see acceleration take place in your life? Have you gotten tired of having your life on hold? Are you ready to see exponential growth in all areas of your life? Boy I have some good news for you! This is your time!!!

You can get unstuck and now is a great time to do so. You can see rapid changes take place regardless of what has seemed to be insurmountable odds against you–NOW!

You’re probably asking: What is the secret? Let me tell you the real secret to seeing an accelerated turnaround in your life. Are you ready? This answer may shock you. You may think it’s so simple and wonder how in the world you missed it all this time. Well here goes…get radically obedient in doing what you KNOW you need to do. Take that leap of faith you’ve delayed taking due to fear or whatever has held you back. Be determined that now is your time. Say words daily such as “Today I will_______” and follow through.

Walk the walk. Talk the talk. Decide it’s your time and then go after it with such gusto that the heavens open wide and blessings are showered down.

Let’s lose procrastination…now is the time.

You’re asking yourself, “Okay now is the time for what?” Allow me to answer that. Now is the time to stop procrastinating in doing any and every thing you need to do to better your life. Some examples:

  1. Suffering from obesity–now is the time to lose weight and become healthy
  2. Suffering from lack–now is the time to get that budget on track
  3. Church hurts kept you away–now is the time to go back
  4. Family drama kept you in bondage–now is the time to break free
  5. Desire to continue your education but you procrastinate–now is the time to do it
  6. Desired for years to publish a book or start a business–now is the time to go for it
  7. Aspiring singer–now is the time to get coaching if needed, get into the studios, attend functions and do whatever it takes to bring it to manifestation
  8. Harbored unforgiveness and have that “Somebody done somebody wrong song” playing over and over in your head–now is the time to let it go
  9. Aspiring speaker–now is the time to get coaching, get into Toastmasters, step up when opportunities present themselves and go for it. Now is the time to say “yes” to you and your dreams.

NOW is the time for ACCELERATED BLESSINGS and SUDDENLY’s to take place in your life. Now is ALWAYS the time. The blessings are for those that are both WILLING and OBEDIENT. You’ve sacrificed enough! The word says if you are willing and obedient you will eat the good of the land.

Reminder: You decide what it is you want out of life. You determine your purpose. And if for some reason you believe that your purpose in this season of life is different than what it was before, it is totally okay. This is YOUR life! Aim to please God first, then yourself and go for it. Don’t allow anyone to define who you are.

The wait is over…walk into your season of accelerated blessings!

Ann: Yolanda, my life has been extremely hard. I’ve gone from bad luck to bad luck to more bad luck with no end in sight. I go to church. I give. I help others. I pray. I fast. I put God first in my life and yet still, the darts continue to come after me year-after-year. Can you help me?

Yolanda: Ann, the bible tells us that it rains on the just as well as the unjust. The bible also tells us to not think it strange when we go through these various tests and trials. One more thing the word tells us–weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning.

Ann: Yolanda, I hear you and I want to believe but when does morning begin? I am so tired of everything just falling apart. When will it end? Will it ever end?

Yolanda: Just know this, after you have done all you can, STAND! Stand still and see the salvation and deliverance of the Lord. STAND and trust and believe that even though He may not come when you want him to, He is always on time. STAND on your faith. STAND and keep moving forward giving Him the praise, honor, and glory. Now as far as when it will end, this I cannot say. What I can say is it will end and when it does tell of His goodness everywhere you go. Heck, as an act of faith, just tell of His goodness in the midst of your struggles and trials. Don’t wait until the battle is over, SHOUT now and watch the walls come tumbling down.

My last piece of advice to you is don’t lose hope, don’t quit, don’t despair, don’t compare your life to others…just pray, trust, act on what you believe the Lord is leading you to do and praise your way through. God trusts you to stand.

Ann: I wish He didn’t trust me so much! {sigh}

We see that Ann faces problems many of us encounter. She goes off in search of answers from her sister in Christ, Yolanda, not knowing that the answers she really needs can only come from God.

What Yolanda did do was encourage her through the scriptures which is commendable and what we as saints should do for each other.

When the answers don’t come like we thought or had hoped; when the situation doesn’t turn around as soon as we believed; when we’ve screwed up and made tons of mistakes and want our lives back on track NOW and it doesn’t happen–my word to you today is just keep STANDING. You can STAND to be blessed!

Connect with believers. Disconnect from all others and STAND on the promises which are found in the word of God.

Trust in the Lord with ALL of your heart and don’t lean to your own understanding. He has a plan and it’s a good one; sometimes it just takes a while for the manifestations to take place or for things to turn around.

Can you STAND to be blessed? Yes, you CAN!




“There’s a breakthrough in this room
And it’s got my name on it
So I’m gonna put a praise on it
I’m gonna put a praise on it”  Tasha Cobbs – Put A Praise On It Lyrics

Are you ready for breakthrough? It’s time to put a praise on it!

Listen people of God, we live defeated lifestyles sometimes as we tend to look at our circumstances instead of looking up to the One who controls the heavens and the earth. Let’s begin to look to the hills from whence cometh our help, knowing our help comes from the Lord.  As we do so, let’s go about praising God in advance for healing, deliverance, strongholds, restoration, debt-freedom, good health, marriages, families, whatever the situation or issue may be…let’s begin to praise Him like it’s already done.

There’s a miracle with your name on it. There is healing with your name on it. There is deliverance with your name on it. There’s restoration with your name on it. Claim the blessings and promises of God by praising Him!

Praise lets the enemy know he has not and will not win. Praise opens up heavens doors and let’s God know in spite of it all, we trust Him. Praise lets people know that your faith, hope, and trust is in God and God alone. Praising through your storms instead of moaning and groaning helps keep a genuine smile on your face as you go through to get to.

Praise often attracts others going through resulting in them coming to you asking the secret to your success. You know the enemy  makes sure many of your mistakes/issues are put before man. Praising our way through is a form of letting our lights shine so that men may see the source of our hope and glorify the God that we serve.

Praise opens the doors and windows for the blessings to flow…so I got to put a praise on it. What about you?

What time is it in your life?  I don’t know what time it is for you but for me…It’s time to put  a praise on it! Radical Praise! Incredible Praise!

Over the past few months, I have heard countless stories from men and women alike, that have endured private pains while it appears that public victories are taking place. These are people who to the world everything looks rosy. These are also people who are daily trying to encourage others, build others, empower others, assist others… going through private pain and suffering silently.

There’s a quote I will share from my book: “To God be the Glory: From Brokenness to Wholeness” that I’ll share with you. “Don’t look at what you think you see, looks can be deceiving. Uplift and encourage ALL you meet and tell them to keep believing.” Looks can be so deceiving! We make things look easy! How? Because we are go-getters: we smile as we suffer silently. We laugh, we joke, we dress well, we speak well, we keep moving forward and then…we often find ourselves alone…quietly and silently suffering…feeling defeated…afraid to open up to people because of past hurts…praying mightily for the issues/pains to stop…yes, we suffer silently. And we hide!

In life, there will be many twists and turns and we are taken places we never expected to end up. We go to school and yet upon completion find that it’s extremely hard to get a job. We marry and think it will be until death do us part only to wake up one day and find ourselves in divorce court. We raise our children the best we can and they rebel and go completely opposite of what they’ve been taught.

We buy homes and later lose them. We are ashamed because the repo man picked up our car. Our finances go up and down. We get a good job and then– last one hired first one fired.

We love people with our whole heart and give, give, and give some more and yet those same people walk away from us in our time of need. We sacrifice like crazy to pursue our careers, businesses, build our families, promote ourselves and others, and yet instead of receiving any kind of acknowledgement or thank you for a job well done, many have been talked about, lied on, cheated, mistreated, and forsaken by man.

Yes we suffer silently.

And we wonder why…why is this happening to me? Know this, your suffering is not in vain. Each of us that are called and chosen by God go through a process: a period of preparation. After we’ve suffered for awhile, we WILL see and reap the rewards and know that our suffering was not and is not in vain. So when you find yourself at a crossroad in life and you’re wondering why or when will it end, know that the Creator has a plan for you; a plan for good and at that set time, the appointed time, you will see that He truly does never put more on us than we can bear. You will find that your suffering was not in vain.

After you have gone through, please go back and share your struggles, your trials, your hurts, your disappointments, your crying or rather sobbing into your pillow, all that you went through, with others. Remember, just as you are and have suffered silently, so are many, many others. Never be ashamed of what you’ve gone through. The enemy meant it for evil, but God meant it for your good. Help someone else as they go through by sharing your testimonies. You no longer need to suffer silently–just share and tell how you got over!

I did and continually do–the good, the bad, and the ugly. You see, I now know what I’m telling you–my suffering was not in vain. Open up your closet and air your laundry. It’s time! And you too, can and will go from brokenness to wholeness AND IN THE PROCESS HELP MANY OTHERS WHO ARE STRUGGLING.

It’s time for your coming out party!

On yesterday I had the distinct pleasure of sharing the stage with some of the best authors and people in the world! This was both an honor and a very humbling experience. I am truly grateful!

Jewel Diamond Taylor hosted her signature event: Authors Who Rock at the Doubletree Hotel in Culver City, CA. There I heard amazing stories going forth as they relate to life in general. There were stories as shared by Otis G. Sanders as to what it takes to have a long, successful marriage with beautiful pictures taken by none other than Mr. Sanders himself. Pamela Samuels Young shared her amazing experiences as with her expectations as a writer, an author. Boise Holmes did a wonderful performance for the attendees (and if you don’t know who he is, google him) and other awesome, amazing testimonies, stories and tidbits for aspiring authors were shared by Dr. Yolanda Dawson, Terrie McBride, Dr. Rose Parker, Queen Camelia Straughn, Iris Jones and of course, the host and founder, Jewel Diamond Taylor. Did I also mention I, too, shared and was in that number. A humbling experience. It was amazing!

But let me say this to you…I want to say it loud and clear…YOU ROCK! And never let anyone dull your shine or tell you otherwise. NEVER!

Many have gone through horrific experiences in life–loss of loved ones,failed marriages, dropped out of school, no support from family and friends when you stepped out into your purpose, children misbehaving, job losses, addictions, repossessions, loss of homes, being totally and completely misunderstood, lied on, lied to, lied to others…the list goes on and on, BUT what you went through was not meant to define and does not define who you really are or who you can become. You ROCK!

Points were brought out on yesterday as to how many overcame. Points were made as to what went into the writings and completions of the books–the diligence, determination, blood, sweat and tears and money. Now am I saying that everyone is a writer? No! What I am saying is we all have a story to tell and we should not allow our past or shame from the past stop us from telling it. You never know, the blessing someone else may need may just be in your mouth.

The shame has been rolled away. Don’t allow it to hold you in bondage to the past not another day! Forget about guilt. Worrying about what people will say or think does nothing for you and is a total waste of time. Do YOU because YOU ROCK!

And remember, we all have a platform–some on a stage, others within our individual homes and communities. Use it to encourage others; to assist others; to uplift others; to inspire others; to teach others; to love on others (Yes, people like you are starving for love). Use the platform you’ve been given and know that you are more than a conqueror, you are a winner, nothing you’ve gone through disqualifies you for God’s best and you do truly ROCK!

Don’t try to imitate, duplicate, or be anything other than yourself because doing you is all that’s required. Be the real you, the one that you’ve hidden from the world for so long. Collaborate and Celebrate! Did I say that YOU ROCK!

2 Corinthians 5:17King James Version (KJV)

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Have you heard the phrase “It doesn’t matter what they call you but rather what you answer to?”  There are no truer words than those. Who do you say you are? Better yet, who does the Word say you are?

Over the past few days, I’ve had some very interesting conversations with some as to things said to them regarding who people remember them to be. That’s all fine and dandy as far as who they remember you to be, but who do you say you are?

Each day as you look into the mirror you should say to yourself–“Well hello new lady (or man)! I can’t wait to see what God has in store for me today.” as each day we continually grow and should not be the same person we were yesterday, last week, last month, or last year. We are in a constant state of growing and evolving.

Never allow anyone’s memories of who you were on last week  define who you are today. Remember, it’s what you answer to.

People who knew you back then tend to make disparaging comments about you as you climb and acclimate into becoming the new and improved you. Don’t allow that to deter you as you climb. You were designed to be epic!

Many are diametrically opposed to accepting the new you and will, if you allow them to, pull you back into the mindset that you are not suitable, capable, and/or qualified to do what you do. The devil is a liar!

As you go about developing, growing, learning, and going, you will begin to recognize who you truly are and in doing so, begin to appreciate the fact that you were designed  as a unique individual; well-able to be all that you aspire and/or were created to be. We are all placed here for purpose.

I encourage you to know who you are and not answer to anything less. I remind you to understand that just as you are growing, so are others. Be careful what you call someone you knew 20 years ago. Most assuredly, many are not the same ones you knew then. If they are, it’s truly a shame. We were created to grow.

Now what you don’t want to do is be pompous, puffed up, prideful, and allow our egos (Edging God Out) make us think we are any better than anyone else. Nor should we go to the other end of the spectrum and believe we are unworthy, unqualified, incapable, not approved by God. There should be a healthy balance.

When people continually try to pull you back into who you were then, and you’ve gotten fed up with hearing it, and now know who you are, just quote the above scripture reference. I assure you they will think you strange and leave you alone.🙂 Do it in love.🙂

Be blessed!

Letting Go Ann Landers

Codependent relationships are a type of dysfunctional helping relationship where one person supports or enables another person’s addiction, poor mental health, immaturity, irresponsibility, or under-achievement.(Wikipedia)

My, my, my! If you’re like me, I’m sure you can see where you have had at least one relationship that was a codependent one.

Let’s break this down–

  1. Codependent is a dysfunctional relationship.
  2. Codependent is where one person supports or enables another person’s addiction.
  3. Codependent is where one person supports or enables poor mental health of another.
  4. Codependent is where one person supports or enables immaturity.
  5. Codependent is where one person supports or enables under-achievement.
  6. Codependent is where one person supports or enables!
  7. A co-dependent relationship hinders one from growing

Key words shown above are dysfunctional, supports, enables, and hinders. Hmm?

There are some warning signs that will alert you if you think you may be in a codependent relationship. Don’t ignore the warning signs or brush them off like we so often do. It hurts you as with the recipient of your “unbridled love and affection” which often leads to the recipient being shocked into reality by some major catastrophe.

This could be the death or loss of a loved one that has enabled one for so long. It is at that point many often proclaim out loud–“Now what am I going to do?”

It could be the loss of a job or other things that they’ve grown accustomed to and took for granted that has them holding their heads in their hands sobbing uncontrollably, again asking the same question.

We do not have to let it get to that point! Once you recognize that you are doing more harm than good in a relationship, set out to reverse the process by letting the person go. It might be, no it will be, very painful, but in the end, prayerfully the person will grow into a mature, responsible adult. It’s in the holding on that holds off their progress. Let them go! For God’s sake, if you love them, let them go!

You may say, but how? That’s my baby, my brother, my sister, my aunt, my_________.Rest assured we are not in control of the outcome of what happens to others, but I have found in my many years of life, when the rubber meets the road and people know they have to do something, they find a way to do it.

Giving someone too much latitude and allowing negative behavior to go on year after year after year hurts them as well as you. Let them go!.

Something to Think About:

Do you really want to see your friends and loved ones grow into mature adults? Do you, or have you given to others things you think they need as opposed to what they really need which often consists of teachings, saying no, and allowing them to pay for their own mistakes? Or are you constantly picking them up time after time again? If you love them, let them go and grow. Both of you will be the better for it. Just a little something to think about when your precious Poo Poo comes with their entitlement mentality.  Ah no sister, it’s time for you to grow!🙂

Say this aloud: Because I love you, I am letting you go and grow. And though it pains me to do so, the pain of holding on and enabling you is much worse. So, out of my deepest love for you, I allow you to spread your wings and fly knowing that sometimes you will fall, BUT I know a God that can help you as He helps me daily, if only you will surrender to and trust in Him.

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

A Personal Development Plan can be equated to a roadmap that one has that helps them attain or achieve goals. It is a life plan for those that truly understand that if one fails to plan, they plan to fail. So how is yours working for you?

Anyone who desires to be whole–spiritually, physically, emotionally, financially, educationally, relationally,  career wise, and in all aspects of life understands the importance of not only having a Personal Development Plan but also working aggressively at it day in and day out to become the person you aspire to be.  So, again I ask, how is yours working for you?

If you, like many people, don’t have one, I encourage you to start today developing your plan. This takes work and often requires visiting on a regular basis to track your progress in developing into the person you see yourself as; the one you know you can become with a lot of faith, work, patience, prayer and tenacity.

Where and How Do I Start?

One of your goals may be to become healthier. Your Personal Development Plan  would first identify where you are health wise by going to your local physician, dentist,  have your eyes examined, a health and nutrition expert, or whoever to help you find out where you currently stand.

Next you would assess where you want and need to go in becoming a healthier you: what exercises you need to do and how often; what your meal plan should look like; whether or not you need to get eyeglasses/contacts or have extensive dental work. All of this is a part of the assessment process.

You would then progress to developing, implementing and continuing your plan to get to your desired level and maintain your newfound health.

The bible tells us to write the vision and make it plain and also that without a vision the people perish. In order to have and maintain a Personal Development Plan, you must have it written down and kept in plain sight as the likelihood of your achieving your goals intensifies by having them written and keeping them before you.

Following similar methods as it relates to any area of your life will get you on the path you seek. By continuing it will ultimately lead to wholeness in all areas of your life.

Take the time to sit down and write out your Personal Development Plan. Don’t look at your spouse, family member, loved ones, friends, or anyone else–this is your plan. As such, it is necessary for you to be self-responsible. Having accountability partners can be good,  and is encouraged, but at the end of the day it is what it is, YOUR Personal Development Plan. So if nobody encourages or supports you as you embark upon your new life, encourage yourself and keep moving forward.

Something to Think About

Let me leave you with this: If not now, when? Who will you place blame on for not becoming the you that you know you were destined to be?  Who or what will you allow to stand in your way? No one can tell you who you were destined to be, no one. At the end of the day, the choice is yours. What will you do with the gift of life you’ve been given? Will you complain about any and everything or will you take steps to be the change you want to see. Everything boils down to choices.

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 1 Peter 5:6 New International Version

Another translation reads…Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, so that at the proper time he may exalt you. International Standard Version

Humility is essential in God’s elevation process. It is NEVER too late to get back up again and one of the key ways is to humble ourselves and allow God to do the elevating. We have an even bigger part to play that I’ll address later in these writings.

There is a commercial that I find most encouraging. The song accompanying the commercial states…It’s never too late to get back up again. The song in and of itself is amazing, but the visual, to see the young people running a race, and one stumbles along the way. They ALL go back and pick up the fallen one, linking arms they cross the finish line TOGETHER.

FB_IMG_1469846186802 (1)

Sometimes the falling was caused by a break down in relationships…our relationship with God as with our relationship with others. Do your part to get these right if at all possible.

When linked with the right people, which sometimes include the fallen soldiers and warriors, we can rise to levels beyond our wildest imaginations. In order to do that, we must first humble ourselves under God’s mighty hand. Then we must  be willing to accept our roles in the downfall or demise of a relationship, business venture, or partnership.

Next we must, and this part is very crucial, be willing to right wrongs. Ignoring or not addressing issues that led to the break down or fall will not yield the desired results of restoration, solidarity, unity and the moving into the promised land; of getting back up again. Don’t we all want that?

Know that even after doing your part, some may not accept your acts for restoration. Do your part anyway, that way your conscience is clear and you CAN get back up.

In order to get back up again, we need runners; some running alongside of us and some we can pass the baton to in order to go to the next level. In order to run our race, we need humility and not allow ego to keep us from our destiny. In order to get back up again we need to take whatever steps necessary to get on and stay on the right path.  In order to get back up again, it often requires a letting go of people and things that take you off course causing you to lose your focus. In order to get back up again, we must consistently forgive others–yes even when we don’t feel like it or want to do so.

Are you ready to get back up again and fulfill your purpose in life? It’s NEVER too late to get back up again!


And let us run the race



“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist   

At a time when there is much chaos, confusion, division, misogynists, hatemongers, and all manners of diversionary efforts taking place to get us and keep us unfocused as it relates to our pursuing our dreams and visions, now is the time to dig in deeper like never before in pursuit of our purpose.

Imagine this if you will, your taking a laid back approach as it relates to your dream could be the diversion that’s hindering or delaying the blessings of so many. Your not acting now could be the difference between the opening of doors for many others to walk through. So now that you’ve thought about that–What’s really holding you back?

The media constantly displays the negatives: the Presidential campaign and all of the tomfoolery that’s taking place with it, the shootings throughout the world, the fallen or disgraced sports figure, government head, or entertainer, in essence the bad news. After all, we know that bad news spreads a lot faster than good news. So what part can you play in reversing or flipping the script in the sharing of more good news and pursuing your dreams and purpose?

Number one, you can get up from where you are, stop watching and reading the same news stories over and over again, be a part of solutions to help our ailing country. Next you can and should begin to live your dreams! Yes YOUR dreams! As I’ve mentioned several times your dreams and purpose is not just to benefit you but should benefit countless others.

I recently read a letter Kobe Bryant penned to his younger self…and I also read the accompanying comments. It amazed me that instead of focusing on the great message the letter contained as it related to some lessons he had learned as he aged, there were several who launched an attack starting with his rape of a white girl and concluding with why shouldn’t he take care of his parents and family members with all the money he had amassed. My first thought was –how ridiculous and my next thought was it’s very easy for others to form an opinion as to what one should do with their own money and the wisdom they’ve learned. Why do I bring up Kobe while talking about Living Your Dreams? Glad you asked.

As you begin to live your dreams and pursue your purpose, there will be many that will have their opinions and unfortunately a lot of them won’t be favorable. You must develop tough skin and LIVE YOUR DREAM and stay true to your purpose regardless of the opinion of critics that can also be some you love dearly. You may have to distance yourself from some and even have estranged relationships as you go and grow. Don’t allow the fear of what others say and think get you off-track. Keep moving forward!

Be bold. Be confident. Study and learn all you can about your dream. Speak. Listen. Pray. Plan. Prepare. Have Patience.  Grow…and then go! Don’t allow the fear of what others will say or think stop you. Don’t allow fear in any way to hinder you. It’s your time to Live Your Dream! You won’t fail if you consistently pursue. Forget the fear of others as with the fear of failure. Move forward!
