The Potter’s House Church, Dallas Texas

My very first time at The Potter’s House I really enjoyed myself if you haven’t taken the time out I recommend going for your own experience you will be blessed in The Lord. This church is so huge I don’t think I had enough memory to capture everything I saw that’s why it’s best to visit when you can.

Guest Services was so nice to me to have blessed me with a welcome gift which was 2 previous Sunday Morning Services on CD’s, a bookmark for T. D. Jakes Show, a reminder card to remind me that I am Blessed and Loved at The Potter’s House and a welcome packet discovering The Potter’s House. Although my seat was reserved by Cora Jakes Coleman finding a good seat wasn’t a hassle and I’m blessed and highly favored. This weekend has been about nothing but #Thanks

It is so much you can do at The Potter’s House I actually grab a copy of The Potter’s House School of Ministry Licensed Ministerial Training Syllabus & Schedule Overview for their Two-Year Program hmmm it’s definitely worth the relocation because you have to take the training on-site at the actual location. I think this is a good way to keep track and record your progress some churches decide when they think you are ready I guess.

Message: Checked You 2 Bless You

Speaker: Bishop T. D. Jakes

Scripture: John 15:7-8

The difference between burial and planting is the one who put the seed in the ground! You are the most powerful where you are the most connected. There is no way to get to the fruit of an answered prayer life without a cutting. Sacrifice isn’t sacrificing if you don’t have options. Don’t be one that has a relationship with the promises of God, but not a relationship with Him. When He knows you see Him as more important than the mantle He wants to give you, He will open up the windows of Heaven to bless you! For all you have endured, He is about to release fruit in your life. In the abiding process, is the transformation of your desires and what you value. The Father gets glory out of you being fruitful because He put the seed in you. The moment you are more in love with the blesser than the blessing, He will begin to make you more fruitful. You may be in the midst of a test right now, but if He checked you He is going to bless you!

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Ebenezer Baptist​ Church, Atlanta GA

IMG_1892I want to give an Honor to God who is ahead of my life and God bless everyone in their respective places. I am so excited to have visited Ebenezer Baptist Church the very exact church Dr. Martin Luther King Jr preached at under the leadership of the Williams and King families. The focus of their church was food, shelter, and health needs. During the civil rights movement in the 50’s and 60’s Ebenezer gained global exposure for education, voter registration, and other civic reforms.

Rev. King Sr. father of Dr. King Jr. loved his family and his church home the same love he gave his children he gave his membership.

This church has significant value and this is where King’s grandfather and father have served as pastors during the 1960’s, Dr. King severed as co-pastor, and after his assassination, King’s brother took over as co-pastor. Just like any other church that has activities, bible studies, meetings and more were led by King’s grandmother and mother. I can imagine what it is today only if the legacy is still being celebrated. The women of impact and influence that should come through and pay their respects. I mean I would invest and fly out to celebrate.

Annual Women’s Day hosted by Coretta Scott King will be celebrating its 55th year October 2017

I can’t believe I was standing in the church where Mama King was fatally shot in 1974 along with Deacon Edward Boykin and 3 others were wounded. My God, I pray for their families and loved ones. We have to pray for our churches and keep them covered.

The Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall has the exact same appearance it did in the 1960’s when you walk in the church there is audio of Dr. King speeches and sermons. I believe if you went there early enough you can pray over your seat and set back to listen to the exact words Dr. King has preached. I’m not sure if there’s a time limit to your visit but it closes at 5pm.

Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve… You don’t have to know Einstein’s theory of relativity to serve… You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love. And you can be that servant. Martin Luther King Jr. “The Drum Major Instinct” sermon at Ebenezer Baptist Church, February 4, 1968

The biographical exhibits are breath-taking at the King Center this is the place I cried right before going into the Rosa Parks room. The King Center is where both the tombs of Dr. King and wife Mrs. Coretta Scott King are Reflecting.

Whenever you get the chance to come to Atlanta if you don’t already live in Atlanta I suggest you visit to get the full experience because my experience is not your experience. There are people in Atlanta who lived here for years and haven’t taken the time out. Let the Holy Spirit move you. All pictures are mine.

When You Are Convinced That You Belong

Joseph Interprets A Dream

Believe in your Dreams and be clear on what they are. Don’t let nobody tell you what you can’t do. For instance, Isaiah knew what His Dreams were to the point He would visualize every part of them from the time He was five years old living in CA Dreaming of playing in the NBA. Walk in the shoes of your Dreams play out the details clearly and let your vision drive you where you want to be.

Genesis 40:4 “The captain of the guard assigned two men to Joseph, and he attended them”

Have you ever stopped to think God assigned someone to you? You’ll know when someone is assigned to you God will make you aware of that and if not pray for discernment, because there are some people who are ATTACHED to you while others are actually ASSIGNED to you. Know the difference!

8 “We both had Dreams,” they answered, “but there is no one to interpret them.” Then Joseph said to them, “Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell me your Dreams.” Joseph told them their Dreams and the representation as He predicted and instructed the men to mention Him to Pharaoh.

The men forgot all about Joseph and never mentioned Him to Pharaoh. Some of us can relate to this situation in a way we help out others and put them on to bigger and better things, and as soon as they get on top they forget all about you. Does anyone have the answer to that? Like hello did you not help them with their Dreams.

Lesson: When you’re powerless over a situation, commit to God and live a life that is faithful to His plan.

“You can’t make your Dreams a reality until you learn to believe in yourself until you find that moment when you are convinced that you belong” Isaiah Austin, Pro basketball player Isaiah Austin Foundation 

 

I Stayed Positive And Kept Hanging On To My Vision

Joseph Challenge To Dream Again 

God want his children to prosper and everything we touch shall prosper. Speak prosperity over your life.

Genesis 39:2 The Lord was with Joseph so that he prospered, and he lived in the house of Po-ti-phar. 3 When Potiphar saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did.

Ask yourself is the Lord with you? Are you succeeding in everything that you do?

Genesis 39:6 “So Potiphar left everything he had in Joseph’s care; with Joseph in charge, he did not concern himself with anything except the food he ate” Joseph needs to stay healthy and in good shape.

Now Joseph was well-built and handsome, who else do we know that’s well built and handsome? Of course Isaiah Austin. The ladies will lust after a good looking man and demand overnight stay. It takes serious discipline to brush a lot off your shoulders, and stay focused on your Dreams. We all know the humiliation some women bring when they are turned down and rejected. Guard your reputation and stay away from lies and slander.

No matter your circumstances you are still blessed by the Lord. God made you a success. Following Joseph’s example and being faithful to God is more than enough. It’s a tough battle to fight against temptation you have the power and don’t let no one take that from you. Do not be discouraged and let nothing stop you finish your race. You have a purpose don’t think you’re suffering there’s a great reward waiting for you. Future success.

“It’s my vision the way I see, I am also talking about something much bigger. I strive to have a life vision. It’s all about how well you can visualize your Dreams. A big part of my story is about Dreams and what it takes to make them come true. I stayed positive and kept hanging on to my vision” Isaiah Austin, Pro basketball player Isaiah Austin Foundation 

I Trusted God And Kept My Focus On The Work In Front Of Me

Dream Again With Isaiah Austin 

Being brought a bad report and still have the hope to Dream Again. Joseph was someone who was loved deeply by everyone. Have you been loved so much the people around you started hating? “Some people only hate you because of the way other people love you” Yes Joseph can relate and sometimes it’s not just by your friends and enemies, in this case, it is His own family. Listen to Joseph’s message.

Genesis 37:5 Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more. 6 He said to them, Listen to this dream I had: This is where we tend to mess up at by telling our dreams to those who don’t have us in their best interest at heart. Which give them all the reasons to hate even more? Our positions in life will make those around us feel inferior to our dreams without a doubt and will not want to serve alongside us due to jealousy, so keep that in mind.

No matter how much you want to look out for people stay away from Dream Killers. Before you allow anyone to strip you for all you got rescue yourself, and be delivered from the hands of your enemies.

It’s ok to be torn to pieces the best part is to pick yourself back up and Dream Again. it is tough being comforted at such a time we often refuse comfort when things are not going our way and that’s the end of that, because you don’t want to hear what anyone have to say, so you sit and dwell on a million assumptions, but God is saying don’t worry I got this. God knows the plans he has for our lives plans to prosper us and to give us hope and a future. God plans are better than we can imagine. Never be uncertain about your dreams. Click the picture and go visit Isaiah.

“I did what Joseph from the Bible would’ve done: I trusted God and kept my focus on the work in front of me. I had left it in God’s hands, which meant I had trusted that He would take care of me. I kept my faith and worked through much adversity to get to this moment” Isaiah Austin, Pro basketball player Isaiah Austin Foundation
