    Blessings Released

    in Radio

    Dr. Loretta Ellison Jones PH.D

    Acts 12: 1-7

    ED on the end of a word mean already done!

    12 Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church. Notice he vex certain churches

    2 And he killed James the brother of John with the sword. Representing how the enemy kills our joy, peace, ETC

    3 And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)The enemy gets joy out of torching the people of God

    4 And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people. They put 16 men to guard Peter /representing a threat to hell

    5 Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him. Satan wills is to keep our blessings lock up but prayer is the key for the blessings to be released…

    6 And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison. I hope you know you can’t bind the power

    7 And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands. Representing blessings can’t be bound when God says they’re release.

    Prisoners to be released back in our neighborhoods?

    in Pop Culture

    The decision could send a large number of prisoners home and back into our neighborhoods.

    The Michigan Parole Board would then be pressured into granting parole for more prisoners who have served and who are deemed less likely to cause reputable harm to others upon release.

    The new policy is a change in many politicians’ attitude towards curbing crime in the state. The 1980s and 1990s saw a rise in funding for prisons and an increase in law enforcement to address crime and bolster the now current mammoth prison system.

    Gov. Rock Snyder is in support of the bill despite push back from Attorney General Bill Schuette and law enforcement officials. The decision was 67-39.

    Many attribute the new policy to the uncontrollable increase in funding of the prison system that is costing the state so much money. The state is facing a need for funding to address other pressing public matters such as roads and education.

    The cost of the state prison system is now estimated at $2 billion with more than 43,000 inmates. The new bill is expected to save the state $75 million annually during the next five to 10 years.

    The Released & Ready Show: Dissect The Vision

    in Women

    The Released & Ready Show: Dissect The Vision & Lay Your Path
    It is difficult to know where you're going if you don't have a clear goal in mind.
    But it is even more difficult if you don't have a clear, vibrant, moving, living, breathing vision of what your destination looks like.  Think about it this way.  If someone were to give you directions, but didn't tell you what type of building you were looking for and there were no numbers on the location, how would you know that you'd arrived?
    In order for you to make sure that you're doing more than simply "being busy"--you need to understand how to create a vision -- or mind movie and then deconstruct it to create a path for yourself in order to create tangible action steps that you follow in order to get back to where you want to be.
    Think of it as reverse engineering your goals.
    In this episode, we'll discuss strategies of how to Dissect your Vision and Lay your Path so that there are no wasted movements in your journey to success.

    The Released & Ready Show: The Power of Language

    in Women

    The Released & Ready Show: The Power of Language & Self Talk
    We all understand the power of words--or do we?  We may understand the power of words spoken in anger to others, but do we understand the power of words that we speak to ourselves?
    When we say things like "I'm overwhelmed. I'm tired.  I'm burned out. I'm stressed out." to ourselves--what are we really saying?  You ARE NOT those things!  You FEEL those things!
    There is a difference between what you ARE and what you FEEL--yet the language that we use makes us believe that we are the things that we actually feel.
    During this episode, we discuss the power of language, how to harness it and strategies for changing our self talk so that we can build powerful and positive action steps to fuel our passion, align with our purpose and build our legacy.
