God’s Dreams for Miracles

Enjoy this Replay of a Top Pick from Listeners!

I am continuing with the series from my new book, God’s Dream for Your Life. Today, we will talk about how you can recognize, receive and release miracles.

God wants to release miracles to you and through you. His dream is that you will be able to recognize His miracle working power, receive the miracles you need, and release miracles to others in need.

In September, the Lord began speaking to me about this new season of miracles. He said we are stepping into an increase of miracles like we have never seen before. Are you ready?

Season of Miracles ~ Miracle of Perfect Love

Enjoy this Replay of Top Picks from Listeners!

Welcome to the final episode of my Christmas series, Season of Miracles.

This week we are going to look at the Miracle of Perfect Love.

How can LOVE be Perfect?

As humans, we do not have the ability to express perfect love. And when I say perfect I mean — loving someone with a totally pure heart and pure motive.

But there is One who can love perfectly — the Apostle John wrote, “God is love!” (1 John 4:16) And He chooses to love us with perfect love.

St. Augustine said, “God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.”  You have been designed to be perfectly loved by God.

How do we receive Perfect Love?

I am continuing with the series from my new book, God’s Dream for Your Life. Today, we will talk about how to find the courage to dream again.

In my journey of traveling and speaking about my book, God’s Dream for Your Life, I have encountered many people who have given up on dreaming. There are a variety of different reasons why, some even would be considered valid reasons.

So, today I want to help you find the courage to begin dreaming again. And to open yourself up to new possibilities of hope for your future.

I want you to know why God has dreams for you. Here is an excerpt from my book that I think will help you to understand.

GOD DREAMS ABOUT YOU!

Bringing Our Dreams into Reality

Enjoy this Replay from Listeners’ Top Picks!

I am continuing with the series from my new book, God’s Dream for Your Life. Due to a large number of requests on “how do I get started” – today I am readdressing just that, “How do we bring our dreams into reality.”

Before we get started, I have a question to ask you. God has BIG dreams & plans for your life — Are you living them?

I have developed a quiz to help identify where you are on your journey and what would be your next steps.

Quiz

One of the most frequent questions I am asked is,  Where do I start to bring my dreams into reality?

Earlier this year, I wrote about this and I am excited to share with you the latest update.  I’ll begin with the mantra I have developed throughout my life:  What I will do tomorrow — depends on the steps I take today.  I am very intentional 95% of the time, in scheduling each day based on the goals I want to achieve.

In stating this, I have developed 5 Small Steps to help me keep the momentum going for my dreams. 

If you implement these 5 Small Steps into your daily routine you will be able to achieve your next great thing? 

It is true!

Actively Waiting on Your Dreams

I am continuing with the series from my new book, God’s Dream for Your Life. Today, we will dig into what “actively waiting” looks like as we “wait” for our dreams to be fulfilled.

Before we get started, I have a question to ask you.

God has BIG dreams & plans for your life —

Are you living them?

To start this topic of the waiting for the dream, here is a quote from author and poet Sandra Cisneros.

“One press account said I was an overnight success.
I thought that was the longest night I’ve ever spent.”1

What dream are you waiting on?

These are a few from others who have shared with me:

  • Finding a Love
  • Discovering their Passion and Purpose
  • Clarity in the next step
  • Starting a business
  • Healing

Many times we can become weary as we are in the process of waiting, discouragement can begin to set in, hopelessness replaces our heart of expectancy — sometimes to the point we wonder if we should give up.

There have been times while waiting, I have wondered if the breakthrough would ever come. One particular time, I knew it was time to take the next step, but what I didn’t know was where the step was! I lacked clarity.

Has that ever happened to you?

How do we do “actively wait”?

God’s Dream for Your Wholeness

Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. John the Apostle, 3 John 2

Welcome to Unleashing the Champion Within. We are continuing our series from my new book, God’s Dream for Your Life.  Our focus for this episode is God’s dreams for wholeness in your life, specifically in your body.

I want to tell you a little about where I am now, a physical challenge I had, and the journey God took me on to wholeness. About a month ago I started thinking about the St. Anthony’s Meek and Mighty Triathlon that I had participated in many years ago. I trained every morning at 5 a.m. with two of my girlfriends. It was so much fun I decided to go to the next step.  So, I have begun training for the St. Anthony’s Sprint Triathlon 2019. The Sprint Triathlon consist of a 5K run, 750 meter swim and a 12 mile bike. 

How did I get started?  I have always been somewhat athletic. In my twenties I played competitive tennis, ran and played a little golf. In the 90’s I really developed a passion for running and would run every day except Sunday. Then, I ran into a physical issue which forced me to quit running. Here is an excerpt from my book of what happened next…

Envisioning Your Future

Enjoy this Replay of a Most Played Episode!

I remember when I was kid, I dreamed of being a superhero! I would lay in the driveway in front of my house and daydream about what kind of superhero I would be. I would see myself flying in the air in my cute superhero outfit, rescuing and protecting others.

In many instances, the way we think things are going to look evolves as we grow up. Of course, what I envisioned for the future has changed dramatically from what I thought it would look like as a child. However, the passion to help others has not changed, it just looks different.

Envisioning your future…why is it important?

How do you begin?

“Have you ever thought about partnering with God for your dreams? What a thrill it would be to join forces with God to make your dreams come true? God is a dream giver and He is a dream fulfiller. Our dreams come alive as we spend time with the Lord. He unfolds things we think are impossible and they suddenly become possible!”

Let’s Get Messy!

Maybe you think about a mess as a Tough Mudder Obstacle Course, a pie eating contest, finger painting, or getting caught in the rain? Today, I am talking about a different kind of mess — I am using the word mess to describe when the things of God are out of our understanding or our control and appear to be messy. Let’s take a look at Scripture from Proverbs 14:4 in the Passion Translation:

“The only clean stable is an empty stable. So if you want the work of an ox and to enjoy an abundant harvest, you’ll have a mess or two to clean up!” Proverbs 14:4 TPT

What this is really saying is as we grow in relationship with God our experiences with Him can appear to be messy. The reason for this appearing to be messy is because we are seeing in part and not from the fullness of God’s perspective. It may sound strange, but there is a messiness in being open to the Holy Spirit. This appearance of messiness occurs because we only have glimpses of what God is wanting to do through us and for us so it appears to be a mess. But to God, it is beautifully and perfectly orchestrated.

Sudden Expansion

Welcome to the 100th Episode of Unleashing the Champion within!

Thank you so much for journeying with me.

Today I am writing my blog as I return home from the Deborahs meeting in Washington, DC. This was a gathering of mighty Generals for this season. The mandate is to equip, testify and empower the Deborahs of the world.

Never before have I participated in such an assembly. Governmental, royalty, business and ministry generals all shared the mighty move of God in their respective countries and roles. I was encouraged and impassioned. 

The common theme in every woman’s message was God is God, and He is moving across the world.

Yes, there is evil rising, but it cannot and will not ever supersede God’s miraculous move in the hearts of His people. And it is the people that make nations.

One of the speakers gave us 3 concepts that need to be understood. We must…

  1. Know Who We Are
  2. Know our Enemy
  3. Know the Voice of our Commander

Living in Your SweetSpot

As I am writing this, I am watching the 2019 Women’s Tennis Finals at Wimbledon in England. Wimbledon is one of the five grand slam tournaments where only the most elite athletes are able to compete.

The two players, Serena Williams and Simone Halep have prepared every day to compete at this level. They have spent years training their bodies, with hours of practice, proper nutrition and working with coaches so this day could become a reality.

They are living in what I would call their sweet-spot.

What is a sweet-spot?
