What’s In Your Travel Bag

Travel: My dream travel is to get away somewhere that will focus on body wellness I look for peace, relaxing, soothing, and rejuvenation. I have been inspired by many traveling ideas. One of my traveling highlights is to “study out the country” I look forward to an unforgettable week of writing and touring. I’m sure many writers can agree with blogging from “Bed” with “Breakfast” creating writing assignments for myself with a scent of fresh air can release tension. You’ll probably breath differently when you acknowledge your stress level and finding new ways to stretch. Stay encouraged by your mentors and offer mentorship to others that will help guide them with perfecting their craft as well as your own.

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

 

Here are 7 Questions I asked 10+ Jr High School Students

Responsibility

My chosen topic is responsibility. I’ll be speaking to the junior high school students and I wanted to talk to them about responsibility and show them how important it is to be responsible. It’s very important to learn about responsibilities once you get your priorities in orders you don’t have to turn and ask for help from anyone or beg someone to do something for you. Who do you turn to when you can’t go to neither one of your parents for an allowance or a friend who won’t let you borrow a few things? Are you gonna beat yourself up or will you learn to make better

Are you gonna beat yourself up or will you learn to make better choices?

The responsibility of your mess is yours. Do you know someone who doesn’t and won’t take the blame for their own mess, but is quick to point the finger at someone because they don’t want to own up to their responsibility? How would that make you look not owning up to your mess? Is it childish? Think of a list where you took the blame for someone else’s responsibility. I have a long list of responsibilities I stood up for that didn’t even belong to me. Was that fair no it wasn’t, but because I know how to love and forgive I loved and forgave that person I put the past behind me, and that was the last time I’ll ever let anyone put a responsibility on me that doesn’t belong to me.

My consistency proves that I am reliable and dependable. It’s a great form of responsibility. Knowing I have to pay bills and keep up with payments lets any lender know I am trustworthy and a lender can be you. Someone may have a hard time at being responsible my best advice is to get an accountability partner or someone you look up to a sibling or a mentor just any person that support and applaud you to do better at your challenges. Guess what? You’re responsible for your own guidance, but who knows you better than yourself and can’t no one make any of this possible but you. I challenge you to take the first step to responsibility. You can start with keeping your room clean or doing chores around the house. It’s up to you to accept the help.

Questions for the students

  1. Write a plan on how you can be more responsible:
  2. What happens when you’re not responsible?
  3. What makes you a responsible person?
  4. Write 3 classroom rules that help everyone to remember to be responsible.
  5. What consequence should be in place for not being responsible?
  6. Write a responsible do’s and don’ts list.
  7. When do you think you should start becoming responsible?
