Psalm 130- A Story of Patience and Hope

Psalm 130 speaks two messages loud and clear, PATIENCE and HOPE. I don’t know about you, but I have had plenty of times where I was unsure and felt like there was nothing I could do but WAIT and see. But here is the good news, we are not waiting on ourselves, a friend or some politician to come in. We are waiting on a mighty, powerful and all-knowing God. This reminder should help you to wait in peace.
While we wait, I encourage you to wait with hope and expectancy. The Lord will come in with his lovingkindess and redemptive power to blow our socks off. In the waiting period we may become impatient, and try to find a solution on our own…remember Sara and Hagar?? This is not what our God wants us to do, He wants us to wait in faith with expectancy that He will deliver. Just take a second to remember your past victories, the points of redemption from the pits that were so deep they left you in despair and tears. The part I love the most about Psalm 130 is the promise at the end, “And He WILL redeem Israel from all his iniquities”. Beloved sister, there is no sin, no past mistake that the Lord isn’t willing to wash away. So here is the hope you can rejoice in today. Our God is a God full or mercy and grace…He WILL redeem!

Don't Stop Now...30 Days To Go!

Hi Ladies,

January 6 was a long time ago. It was the day we embarked on a journey to become the women God wants us to be. As any journey, there are times of mountain peaks and valleys. Those who win in life are the ones that are able to perservere through the pain, take care of business when you do and dont feel like it.

So, here we are at Day 60, with just 30 more to go. Don't give up now, continue with your TAG, discover your hidden potential and begin to deal with the areas that need growth. You are an action step away from greatness, after all that is what God created you for!! Jeremiah 29:11

Next Gathering:
Saturday, March 22 @ 10am
3903 Braodway Room 202 Oakland, CA

God Has Given Us The Power To Get Wealth

Warm Greetings Sisters,

I truly appreciated the author's exploration of the Proverb 31 woman's enterprise last week, it definitely lite up my entrepreneur spirits!!! Currently, I do operate an event planning company, but I've been encouraged to take it to the next level and explore other ways to leverage my gifts.

There are so many opportunities out there ladies to add to our pocket book. I want you to do something RIGHT NOW, take an inventory of your skills and talents. I bet there is something on that list you can get paid for. Whether you have creative writing skills, and you can offer services to write cover letters, or bios for people. Or, you have a creative way to teach children how to read, turn it into a curriculm or Youtube video and market it to parents. Maybe you have the gift of baking or mixing ingredients together to make a remarkable product? That is exactly how Carol's Dughter got started (read her story here).

Bottom line, as women we have many responsibilities, why not position yourself for financial freedon, to leave an inhertiance to your children's children (Proverbs 13:22). We live in America, the place of free enterprise. There are several program that target women and minority business owners, in helping them start businesses (see list below). I challenge you today, out of the five different ways to earn extra income, select one to explore.
