Perfection doesn’t exist, we all fall short in something. God takes you just the way you are. He took an old hoodlum dude like me and saved me. Now, I’m not that “washed white as snow version” of a Christian. I didn’t get that version. I just got rinsed off. When I got saved, I still had dirt on me. You can be an imperfect person and have a relationship with God. If you’re struggling and looking for a way out, talk to God.

As a child, every morning my mother would come into my room while I watched TV and tell me to “get out that box, you’re going to be late for school.”
I watched the Ed Sullivan Show and in my mind at 9 years old, I said I’m going to have The Steve Harvey Show. Ed Sullivan had show sponsors, so when I was 9 I had to get some too. 😂😁🤣 Guess who was my imaginary sponsors at 9 years old? 😂😁🤣
God has given me a life far beyond anything I ever dreamed about. Bishop TD Jakes’ sermons have always been powerful to me. TD Jakes once said, “I would hate to die and never do the thing I was born to do.” God let me do it here and again with the Steve Harvey Show. Today as I turn another page in this chapter of my life, I thank God for all he’s done for me.
Everything you are going through is preparing you for what you asked God for. Through your trials, God toughens you along the way. I had to learn how to appreciate that.
Now that I am on the other side of my troubles I understand what those troubles were for. God has a path for you, don’t think you are the only one going through it.
There’s no elevator to the top! You have to take the stairs in life. Sometimes in order to get the life of convenience, you have to deal with being uncomfortable.
When you imagine things, it’s actually God showing you a preview of a coming attraction he has for you. The biggest dream killer is telling small minded people what’s in your imagination. Wondering why your friends or family shot down one of your best ideas? Because God gave it to you and not them.
The things that have been in your imagination… you have to start working on them. These are the gifts that God has for you.
Practically everything we use or purchase started out as an idea in someone’s imagination. Your cell phone, your car, etc. The things in your imagination aren’t there by chance. You have to act on them now.
I hope that you enjoy my new “Motivated +” series, I wanted to give you a little more than my regular #Motivated series. Leave me a comment and let me know how you are going to move on the gifts in your imagination.
If you’re like me, you’re constantly trying to improve yourself. I have news for you. God loves you right where you are. You’re in a process right now, a process of becoming what God wants you to be.
Ever wonder why God wakes you up every day? It’s because he isn’t done with you yet! He has something else for you that you haven’t received. You have to start living your life with expectations. Here’s the secret to all of this, you have to start expecting great things to happen. This is the law of attraction, this is real. If you change your attitude it will change your altitude.
You are in control of how you set the tone of your day. You get to decide every day if your thoughts are going to be negative or positive. “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
It’s critical that you are aware of your thought patterns throughout the day. That’s a determining factor of your success.
Don’t forget to pray, don’t be ashamed to pray, and don’t be too proud to pray. Prayer changes things. I don’t care how dark things look to you. I don’t care what anyone has said to you. Don’t forget to pray. I don’t care what the verdict is, I don’t care what the haters say. Don’t forget to pray, prayer changes things.
If it wasn’t for God, I wouldn’t be standing here today. God saved me, don’t trip on my walk with God. My path is different from yours, God takes old hoodlums like me and turns them into Christians. I’m just a nobody, trying to tell everybody, about somebody that can save anybody.
