    Faith-vs-Fear: Face your Fear with an OPEN Heart!

    in Motivation

    Everything in life is about how we handle those 2 F words!

    We walk through life taking on the fears of the world, embracing it as if it's the only thing left for us to choose... and we hold on for dear life too, right?

    Why is it so easy to grab a-hold of fear, carrying it around like a nice, warm blanket and so difficult to have faith? These two words have everlasting affects on our lives.. so much so that it is beyond crucial that we talk about it during this 60 minute show! Our hosts will talk strategies to increase your faith and belief that the journey you're on is not an illusion... It's about deciding to choose the "f" word that works in the long run.

    You’re Not the Only One…A Voyage to Spiritual Life Transparency

    in Motivation

    This week on Universal Broadcast with Tracey Booker, Tracey the show to the topic of releasing spiritual bondages that we incur as a result of the human mistakes that we make in life. The inability for us to forgive ourselves or to forgive others many times escapes us and we become stagnant in our ability to rise out of that conundrum. Our willingness to allow others to dictate how we feel about ourselves, our levels of acceptance; self-esteem, self-worth, and self-conceptualization keeps us in a “comfort zone” that really is uncomfortable.   

    Today’s guest’s Pastor Valerie Howard-Jones and Dr. La Vonne Shaw share from the heart, a myriad of experiences from their lives and ministry experiences, and provide guidance on being transparent, unshackled, unhindered and whole. This show will be one that you won’t want to miss, and it will encourage you greatly.

    Proverbs 23 You got the POWER ... Jesus shamed the enemy publicly for us

    in Religion

    Proverbs 23 

    Potential is in you let it come alive

    See Jesus and believe John 20:25-29

    Colossians 2:13-19 
    13  And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses,
    14  having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.
    15  Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
    16  So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths,
    17  which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ.
    18  Let no one cheat you of your reward, taking delight in false humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

    Joshua 1:1-13 NKJV 1  After the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, it came to pass that the LORD spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' assistant, saying: 2  "Moses My servant is dead. Now therefore, arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them--the children of Israel. 3  Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses. 4  From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the River Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your territory. 5  No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. 6  Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. 7  Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.
    1 Corinthians 2:7-11 NKJV 7  But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, 9  But as it is written: "EYE HAS NOT SEEN, NOR EAR HEARD, NOR HAVE ENTERED INTO THE HEART OF MAN THE THINGS WHICH GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM." 10  But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.
    John 10:10 NKJV 10  The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. Joshua 17

    Children of Might

    in Prayer

    In order for our children to prosper in "whatever they do", they must have a spirit of might, a "can-do", "will-do", "must-do" attitude and resolve to finish what they start and confidently take on new projects.
    Lets pray this Tuesday for the spirit of might over our children and watch them take on and conquor the impossible things in their lives, all to the glory of God.
    See you in prayer!
    p.s. For some reason, the system is blocking me from scheduling at 5:30 am as I did in the past, so that's why we are starting at 6am.  I believe it is important to fill the airwaves with our prayers, so though I still start at 5:30, the live prayer will start airing at 6am..  Thanks to all the prayer partners and Intercessors who join in at 5:30, 6am and all day long on Tuesdays for our children.
