It’s December! God has already done so much as we are just one day in and one day closer to the end of the year. We are getting ready for the reset of 2020. What a spoken word today! What a shared victory –it is tremendous! God is so good. It is an amazing season to be in and walk through with individuals that are ride or die no matter what.
“They they told him, and said;
‘We went to the land where you sent us.
It truly flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit'”
Today we went to a service in Paterson NJ –as a participation of ordination at Harvest Outreach Ministries with Apostle Edward Ramirez. I was so moved today. Mostly –of course, experiencing and witnessing my husband Apostle Juan Mendez in such a higher realm. And just basking in that word today for RESET.
How many years have gone by that we felt robbed? Shortchanged? Stuck? Complacent? Or at a constant loss? Yes I can attest that I felt like that the majority of my life. Until now. Here I am just enjoying the time that I am getting to spend with radical people that love Jesus in a radical way. Not only that but that they love us that way too! Can you believe it? We are grateful.
Some people last in your life for a lesson, a season or a lifetime. I need some lifetime folks in my life for sure. Those that fear God and understand the various callings and unique places that we all possess. Because together we can conquer so much more. It is where their victory becomes our victory and where our victory becomes their victory.
Where are the people that can set aside their agenda for connecting to kingdom purpose? Where are the people that can say now –in service and support I can sow that so I can grow that? Where does that even exist in a day and age where we are all so busy with our schedules, tasks and the many pressing priorities.
Here are some amazing people that decided to join us today for a day of ordination. Here are some people that can carry the call with you in addition to what they carry within their own threshold. What a work! What an assignment! What a great place to be!
Here is what you can experience when you wait on God to bring those that you have been praying for all along.
So who is to say that the land flowing with milk and honey is beyond the things you can see in the natural. It is not a physical place, a mental place or an emotional place. It is a heavenly and spiritual place. It is a realm that you tap into that is beyond what you have now. It is grasping onto the God who plants you right next to the visionaries and pioneers of the faith who will labor with you. The ones that will share in the overwhelming victory beyond December! The ones that point you right back to HIM too!
It’s big people of God! For when you may see littleness in big places and bigness in little places –you can pull out the fullness of the whole walk and purpose that God has for US!
Togetherness. Unity. Divine appointment. Shared success and shared victory. All these things are possible for us. We will recover everything that satan has tried to take from us! We will recover nothing but VICTORY AFTER TREMENDOUS VICTORY! It is our time! OUR TIME! Let’s keep moving forward as a body of believers that can shake the nations for Jesus the way He wants us to. We leave a mark this month! We leave a mark of victory.
Glory be to God –December is looking pretty great! ❤ This is it’s fruit. #numbers13
Amen and Amen

It’s November! And I can already sense so many of the blessings ready to be released. I am thankful for what God is doing in our midst! I see the blade.
“And He said, “The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how. For the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head. But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest as come.”
A M E N to that! I woke in the morning very early! Precisely 2am! I said in my mind as always, “God are You serious?!?”
Yes–He was very serious!
So I prayed… Lord may it be Your will. May it hit that sweet spot. You are my Defender, my Negotiator and the One that worked it up. Sealed the deal over my life. I feel like I am wrestling in the night watches like Jacob did with the angel, saying “I’m not going to leave until You bless me!” I can only keep praying the way I know how. Silently but deeply; contemplative, earnest and in great anticipation. I have my hope anchored in You, remove all doubt and distractions. Make it happen.
Amen … amen…. amen.
I see this late night tweet pop on my phone from Reverend Victor Adeyemi:
“This month, I pray that the hand of the Lord will rest upon you for GREAT EXPLOITS. You will walk in supernatural wisdom, strength and favor for your life and purpose!” Amen!!
Then I go back to sleep. Easy. Keep my peace.
I am waking up to breakfast now in another state away from home, work, church, hustle and bustle. And as hard as it was for us to get down here and drive through the storm, I’m so glad that I’m spending a four day weekend in this beautiful place called Charlottesville, Virginia￼. It’s sunny, cool and beautiful out here.
My heart is happy. I came off a three week journey in preparation for what’s next. More to come on that.
It’s November!!!! ♥️ Be blessed all!

Isn’t it so so wonderful to kick your feet up after a long week on a Friday!! I just love that Friday feeling. And I am sure that you all do too!
What to do????
Those are great things to do for me and I don’t expect everyone else to love those things, I am just done with packing my weekend up after so many work years! Weekends are to recoup.
We work so hard and time flies by so fast. There is nothing like being able to enjoy your own home, couch, bed, table, furniture. All these things you acquired over time to create a welcoming environment. That’s my home! My own peaceful Starbucks environment!
So today I pray that you REST! Enjoy your home, enjoy the people in it and enjoy what you built. There cant be nothing worse that not being able to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Live in this moment because you deserve not wasting it all away when life moves so fast.
On the right path…. excerpt from “Attention Pays” by Neen James:
“What would happen if we set some boundaries? As organizations, as leaders, and as individuals, we need to make it OK to have rest and recovery. And to recharge our batteries. We need to make it OK to pay attention to what really matters at work when we are there and to what really matters at home when we are there. How much more productive could we be if we focused and paid attention to who and what was important at the appropriate time?”￼
Take the time, the weekend, the evenings that you come home and make it SWEET! ♥️
You are worth it, even if you have to say NO to plans because you plan to rest. Be watchful and wise with your time because you cant get it back any other way.

““At least there is hope for a tree: If it is cut down, it will sprout again, and its new shoots will not fail. Its roots may grow old in the ground and its stump die in the soil, yet at the scent of water it will bud and put forth shoots like a plant.” Job 14:7-9 NIV
Today I looked out, stopped. Took a pic. Love the winter SOMETIMES! Saw the flurries coming down and it looked magical. Even through the glass staring out at the bare trees, they spoke. Deep. So deep.
Skies the limit!
I love trees, its more than a logo for me;
Or a ministry. It’s something God created.
They grow together.
They are beautiful, expressive;
Maybe like sisters
Sometimes that can hurt;
One and another;
But mostly an expression of sincere love.
Something lasting. Wonderful.
Love that took time.
Love that has depth.
Deep, deep roots.
Because of the authenticity,
There is a reason they never look fake.
There is no pretend.
They could never know how not to be trees.
In every season they display its true nature.
They wilt up in summer.
Blossom in spring.
Change colors in autumn.
Only to prepare for the stripping that winter will cause. It can be brutal. It’s a season to pass through for trees.
But truth be told,
Even when the conditions change around the trees
It still has strong roots, so they go through each season again and again.
Whoever said the life of the trees would be easy.
That’s how I have to believe about sisterhood.
We’ll get through this season and the next.
And always be the most expressive, unique and strongest trees.
A sister forever ♥️
Sharing a simple poem.
