My life has been full of ambitious and purpose fulfilling people. They each have inspired me. I’m blessed to have such amazing parents, other family, and friends. If my sister were here on this day we’d be celebrating her day, of getting older. Lol She’d be so proud, that I’m starting my masters degree program next week. I’ve been very emotional today but between her, Daddy, mommy, and the grandparents I’m excited and inspired to continue to pursue higher education. I’m excited to be able to sit at every table with every man/ woman that will cross my path. I look forward to being able to listen and comprehend on every level. I’ll never stop evolving and being open to higher heights because the people God placed in my life never stop. Tamika never stopped. Don’t let an age or an illness keep you from living the dream and fulfilling your purpose. A legacy to walk with The Lord, to follow your heart, and to keep growing lives from this ever- living young adult woman…Tamika Juanita Halliburton. The sky is the limit. Happy Birthday!
we shoudl work on praying more than we talk. It’s more effective and done so more in love. people are so quick to put people down without resources and valid information it’s disgusting. Why cant you be just as invested as you are are in tearing people down, in your life and the building up of it…because by the looks of it, it’s all broken down. live your life and love the people in it. Love them back to life.

The way this guy broke down the word! #speechless #johnGray love he and his wife! #goodpeople 

Points to remember: 
Men: if You want your love life to go to the next level, take your worship to a different place.  
Ladies: If he can bless God, he can bless you.  

Listen to those who are more concerned with the anointing on your life than being your friend 

All we see is the discipline when there’s protection behind the discipline. Accept the “no” and trust the one who’s giving you a “no”.
A letter to the girl who wants to be married with a son, but with the wrong man. I’m sorry you had to go through that. I know the feeling and I have been there. I’ve tried running my boyfriend over with my car. Lol the arguing had gotten bad. The only thing I can suggest that you do is do what I’ve tried. I’ve gotten busy on building my dream and things that I’ve aspired to do. I began praying more and opening myself up to greater possibilities. What do you want to do in life? What’s your biggest dream? Occupy your mind with work and building a beautiful life for you and your son rather than trying to change a situation. Don’t wait on a man to have a beautiful life. I’ve prayed and asked The Lord to give me strength to walk away and he’s done that. Ask him to take away the desire for this man if he’s not the one for you. However, I believe that who we marry is a choice left up to us. I’ve told myself, “The only person that is causing your pain is you, because you’re making the choice to deal with it.” What are you dealing with that you don’t have to? Also, are the arguments petty? Maybe you guys aren’t choosing the most valuable battles. Every battle you don’t have to fight. You seem to have a lot answers to your situation already. ;-) if he does You may have played wife long enough. So, protect your son, but get some new friends. You’re still young so talk to other guys. Have better choices in building friendships with other MEN not boys; and let it be nothing more than a friendship. Read the book “think like a man” by Steve Harvey it really helped me. You’re worth someone sweeping you off of your feet because you want a family the way God originally planned for it to be. God likes that our desires matches with his will. Psalm37:4 But we can’t force someone else into HIS will if they’re not ready and if they’re not apart of His plan. Maybe The Lord wants you to be free, enjoy life, explore the world, enjoy your son, and come closer to HIm before you have your husband. So, embrace your decisions and try moving forward. I’ve made the decision to enjoy life build my dream and to never wait for anyone…and it’s been the happiest and free place in my life. Im no longer waiting on a man. If I get married then so let it be…if not I will be able to say I enjoyed my life and I fulfilled my purpose in life the best way possible. Make sure you’re able to say that with or without a man. Don’t get me wrong, I want to be married but I can’t let that stop my life because it’s the mans choice in whom they chose. So, I’m no longer in a hurry and ok with Gods timing. It may sound easy but I know it’ll be a struggle. However, I’ve seen it happen. You can move forward. I hope this helped. Please keep in touch! I’m praying for direction, strength, and guidance for you. You can do it. You’re a wise woman. So, operate In knowing that.

“Repentance is not just a one-time turn around, but a thousand small daily deaths to yourself. It’s living for the one whom you were saved by to do what you were made for. It’s not merely saying no to something, but saying yes to the best thing.”
Life class People say stop talking about it and do something about it. Well I did the best I could and my heart was Saddened. And just because I was disappointed doesn’t mean I’ll stop going after my generation and people. I had the chance to see that the African American Christian is more likely to shout about receiving a check in the mail and receiving that they’ll never see a broke day in their lives but they aren’t willing to Learn to avoid that broke day. We have faith but no works. Also, because we misunderstand the principles that have been set, we think faith doesn’t work, When really it does! it’s just that God likes to see that we want some things as bad as He wants to give them to us. If we don’t work to get the dream we won’t work hard to keep the dream; or we may just be ungrateful. I try understanding why some people wouldn’t want better for themselves but I can’t seem to grasp it… It’s like some of is are only living to hustle and pay the next bill. We can shout/dance for hours but the moment a teacher tells us that insurance covers what was stolen or lost and you’re given the opportunity to register insurance for $18-50 on spot we don’t act on it. I’m afraid that some of us enjoy being slaves. Some of us enjoy not getting ahead in life. How do we try and understand this? I’m not beating that person down? But I’m trying to help the thief see that he can have his own and he not be on a run for what he wants for himself. I want our children to know that there’s more to God than him moving a mountain. If we become proactive we’ll see that with God there is rest, there is well being, there is joy, happiness, wealth, and so much more. There’s so much more to God than him moving a mountain or always having to get you out if he struggle. Some people won’t ever get it. But there are some who want to get it. I’m just saying…. Don’t stay a slave.

My prayer Hoping that I’m not offending you and praying that the work that you’ve begun in me you will complete as your word said. While you’re covering my wrongs I pray that I don’t take advantage of your love, unknowingly, but will have the strength and courage to continue to walk upright and stay true to you and me. I pray that you give me the strength to not worry about whether or not someone knows “who they’re messing with…” But I pray that you give me the strength to resist pride so that I may love who curse me and pray for them as well. Continue your work and strengthen me to walk in truth all the days of my life. I cast down every high imagination that tries to come up against You. Let my life forever be leaning toward a heavenly everlasting life with you. Amen.

Every Pastor Is NOT Dishonest: get over yourself! I remember pulling into a gas station and a man trying to “holla at me” and asked for my number. I told him, “if you come to church I’ll give you my number…” He asked what church I went to and he went on tell of how he had come there before and didn’t like it. He didn’t know that the pastor was my father. He went on to explain how he didn’t like how the preacher was trying to raise money for the light bill. It bothered me so I asked, “well how else was the bill suppose to get paid? Was God suppose to send manna from on high?” He didn’t have a response. “Or maybe he should’ve paid the bill..” That bothered me, not only on a personal level but for seeing men who walk with The Lord and them being attacked constantly with this common accusation. Have they ever thought the rapper that they’re obsessed with is using their money to flash to them the chains and diamonds that their listener still can’t afford? The world is quick to attack church people and say that we are judgmental but will cast judgment on a pastor saying that they take the money from the church for their nice cars and clothes. How unfair is that? What happened to the scripture that says that the steps of a good man are order by The Lord? Or us seeking The Lord for answers and on where to go to have money for living. Every pastor is not taking your money. There are plenty of honest and godly men who are in the church; And I’ve seen one firsthand. Why can’t pastors have invested in stocks, law firms, or own other businesses? Not to brag on my father but he would have made a living with or without a church and I can tell because he worked a job, got degrees, and had a vision and a plan to get ahead in life. The proverbs 31:16-18 woman was even a working woman who could afford nice things. The description giving in this scripture let’s me know that she was an entrepreneur. She knew how to operating in the trading business. So, Because she’s a Christian is she suppose to be broke and weary? Why can’t the saints be wealthy?! Why can’t we know our God to be Jehovah Jireh?! Can He only move mountains or dry your tears?! There’s more to our God. All I’m saying is everyone is not dishonest in the church. There are many honest leaders and I think we should honor and appreciate them for not taking advantage of us.
