God’s growing seasons look like difficulty. Your difficult season is preparation for your power season. On the other side of this is strength you didn’t know you had, love and respect for yourself that you haven’t tapped into yet. Every tree is a seed that refused to stay a seed. Growing can hurt, it can feel uncomfortable, you will have to unbecome who you used to be but every time you refuse to stay the same, you give yourself permission to become the next version of your powerful self.
Some people won’t understand how you can smile under the circumstances. They don’t know that when you have been through enough storms with God, a smile does not mean that you’re looking at what the devil is trying to do, a smile means you can see what God is getting ready to do. Faith smiles at the storm because no weapon formed against faith shall prosper. By Patrick Weaver
My heart grieves in the loss of this gifted anointed young brother, Hayden Jackson. He was a gifted pianist and Minister of Music. Depression is real and especially in the Black Church Community. He had such a promising future. This really hurts! Stop telling people to just Talk To Jesus and He will make it alright. Prayer alone isn’t enough. Prayer and Faith Without Works Are Dead. There is nothing wrong with Prayer but God already answered your prayers by empowered you to seek help with a Licensed professional in the Mental Health. His death could have been preventable if the Church Community encourage him to seek help with a Mental Health professional even a Mental Health Peer Specialist.

They will try to attack your character when they don’t like your power. Don’t trip, they called Jesus Satan. They attack you because they fear you. You didn’t do something to them, you did something that makes them know that you are peculiar, God-fident and not like everybody else. They know that something about you limits their foolery power and exposes their insecurity. Your anointing angers them because something tells them you can’t be controlled or affected by demons or opinions. Don’t get upset – stay in power. When power smiles at Satan’s rage, it drives them crazy.

Stop taking responsibility for other people’s crazy. That’s their issue. They had that emotional demon before you met them. You didn’t love them wrong, their demon can’t be loved right. Learn to accept the fact that wrong people won’t be right for you, and be glad that God removes people who keep Him from blessing you. They are not your loss, they are your win – anytime God frees you from what you couldn’t win with, you win. Start thinking like a winner and stop acting like you could have won with somebody who God had to save you from. Quotes By Patrick Weaver

The Queen of Soul had one rule: she would get paid in cash before she performed – on the spot – or she would not sing.
Franklin insisted on being paid in cash because she grew up in an era where other Black artists like BB King and Ray Charles were swindled out of their money.
The Queen of Soul had her cash go straight into her handbag, which she kept on the piano onstage with her before handing it off to her security team.
Even Franklin’s contracts required club promoters to physically hand her $25,000 in cash, and anything beyond was handed over in the form of a check.
Franklin didn’t keep all of the cash for herself, but used the money to pay the staff from the shows off the books.
Aretha Franklin left an absolutely phenomenal legacy that is beyond words, and one thing we can take away from the legacy is the power in knowing our value and worth in conducting our affairs.
Look who landed a Senator role on The Have and Have Not!!! He will fly to Atlanta next week to begin the filming of his role.
Congratulations to: Geoffrey Owens, who was working as a cashier at a New Jersey Trader Joe’s. After being job-shamed and forced to quit the grocery store gig, Owens accepted a 10-episode role as Senator, in the OWN series The Have and the Have Nots, a drama directed, written and produced by Tyler Perry.
