June 3, 2018 The Dream Series: What Is A Dream? Step 1: Desire Rev. Dr. Derrick B. Wells

What is a Dream?

  1. A dream is a work assignment offered by God
  2. A dream means a deep desire to door be
  3. It means to acquire something of tremendous importance

Step 1: Desire  Name your desire; this is the urge within us indicating that God seeks to express Itself through us

  1. Desire is the dream in embryo state
  2. Desire is God tapping into my soul seeking expression
  3. Desire must be impressed upon the subconscious mind before it can be accomplished
  4. I cannot desire anything that I am not capable of attaining

Dreams come true when I know what to do

What is my motivation?

Attainment of my dreams won’t be easy. It will require work and the best of me

My dreams are my goals – work them and step away from the naysayers

My work assignment is possible

I am investing in reshaping my life

Can I see my possibilities? I have the power to transform me

Write out my vision (only to myself) BE CLEAR

Hinders to my dream

  1. There is not enough
  2. I’m not enough

I must prune negativity from my life

Overcome and let go that I’m unworthy. I am all and have all that God is

With God before me there is a new possibility; it’s not over until I take hold of the desires from God and move out on them

Luke 12:32 (NRSV) Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom

John 15:1-8 (KJV) (Use to stay on point!)

  1. I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman
  2. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit He taketh away; and every branch that beareth fruit, He purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit
  3. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you
  4. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me
  5. I am the vine, ye are the branches. He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit; for without me ye can do nothing
  6. If a man abideth not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned
  7. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you
  8. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples

May 13, 2018 My Notes: Get Out Of Your Own Way Rev. Dr. Derrick B. Wells

It doesn’t take a lot of words to help me get back on track

Being critical doesn’t change anything

If you have nothing good to say, say nothing

You must pay for the words you speak

Self criticizing tears down from the inside

Build yourself up when you tear yourself down

Fight or run; neither option helps me develop myself

At the root of everything I say comes from my thoughts

Negativity put out today shows up as the harvest tomorrow

Self criticism doesn’t help me to walk the path I want

When self-criticism happens:

  1. Pray for myself
  2. Encourage myself to do better
  3. Identify the areas where I can improve
  4. DO BETTER

Everyone is not healthy enough to travel with me

A mess is a mess of my own making

Clean up my own mess; it’s my responsibility

Shift from the state of complaining to the state of action

Have courage to pick up what I’ve laid down

I am where I am because I want to do better

My story can be designed to help me stay where I’m at versus cleaning up my mess and moving forward to a clean experience

Do I really want to do better?

Do I want to be blessed right Now?

God will pick me up out of the experience; I just need to get up

When you complain so much you can fail to see the blessing when it appears

I can put myself in the pattern I want to get out of when there is no active work and prayer

Cleaning up my mess interrupts my pattern

Pick up your bed and walk!!!!!

Tired of being tired? Get up and walk

It’s not the circumstance that dictates; its me willing to connect to God. GET UP AND WALK

Activate the Power

Pay attention – stop dividing my time

Focus – When I give myself over to the Power of God I’m activating my God Power

There is some stuff I’m going through that my paying attention to God will pass on by

Forgive and heal

How do I forgive? Make the decision not to let the past control

Proverbs 3:5-6 (NRSV) Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insights. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths

Philippians 4:13 (KJV) I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me

April 29, 2018 Notes: The Power of Praise and Thanksgiving Rev. Deandre Patterson

What I don’t practice at home I will never get in church

Bridge gaps between religions

I won and didn’t have to fight

I’ve had to come up against somethings that have been larger then me — God is there

Believers fight knowing at the beginning we are winners

Proverbs: the fear of the Lord is the beginning

I am unbeatable

God’s strength is made perfect in my weakness

When I can’t He can; When I don’t He does

God will give me a brand new mind; God is complete

Think and choose my battles

The Lord is with me

Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord

Tool to be used: attitude of worship and praise

My weapon in praise is God

When I praise God He will bring me through any and all difficulties

Praise of God brings peace

Win the battles I can win

When I praise God I am

Talking to God and tell Him how valuable He is to me

Praise is a Commandment from God

Praise the Lord; His mercy endured the right way

My breakthrough is attached to my to my praise

There is power and benefits in praise

Know how to survey my surroundings quietly; just between me and God

Worshiping God is a weapon against evil

Turn around is coming, I must praise God through it

I’m too purposed to pay folks attention; God is my source

Mediation is a weapon that defeats enemies

Worshiping God is showing my respect for Him

Worship doesn’t confuse the devil (false thinking), praise of God does

Get ready for my overflow

President Barack Obama June 19, 2015

An oldie but a goodie!!!!! Considering the state of our country today I thought it would be good to listen and remember how a TRUE President conducts himself. Aw, remember the gold old days. POWER TO THE PEOPLE

Folks, PLEASE get out and vote in ALL of the elections local, state, and federal. There will be no change unless you participate and vote those out of office who place themselves and their cronies ahead of the people not only of this country but remember what they do will “trickle” over the world. Send a clear message and VOTE

April 22, 2018 My Notes Ready For the Overflow, Working with the Law Guest Speaker Reverend Sherri James

I am on a forward march!

It’s my turn!! I must shift my energy to that which God has placed in me

I am = unconditional awareness

First I see it, then I become it

I am (me) get condition by whatever I put in front of me

I am because of how I use my I am

All of me has not been conditioned, I can become what I’ve never been. There is hope for change

Feed my I am new ideas

I can tap into the best part of me and become what I’ve never been before

Be bold and daring enough to take on what God intends for me

John 8:58,  John 1:1-3,  Col 1:27,  John 14,  Col 1:29,  Phil 1:2,  John 4:1-5

April 1, 2018 Notes Easter Sunday Strong, Stronger, Strongest. The Strongest Always Get Up Again! Rev. Dr. Derrick B. Wells

I have the power to cross out and eliminate that which I no longer need. The power is within me

Sometimes I can be forced back (by myself) I can, I will learn my lesson AND get my blessing

I’m my own and biggest critic

Walking with God is not always easy; it is always beneficial

Know that greatness comes with a great price

My trials come to make me strong. I’m getting stronger every day

Make a small shift in my mindset

1 Move My Faith: Faith is more than idle wishing. Is my faith underdeveloped

1a. Area of Hope: Keep moving forward even when I feel like giving up.

Commit myself to not giving up

1b. Blind Faith: Move as if God has got me regardless of what I think

1c. Understanding Faith: I don’t have to doubt that God has got me.

I AM A FAITH THINKER!

Average thought patterns can only bring about average thinking

1d. Faith Thinker: God can and will be decisive and make my decisions

Trust that God will bless me over difficulties

  1. Move My Focus: What I focus on is where I’m going. Difficulty always shows up as a lesson to teach me God is in the mist of my challenges. No matter what I think God can think higher
  2. I have control over my thoughts, behavior, and what I feel
  3. I learn by the problems I’m given to solve
  4. It’s not about just focusing on what is in front of me
  1. Move My Feet: There is a clear distinction between talk and action!I’m ready to get up again
  2. THE CHRIST IN ME HAS SET ME FREE
  3. I can’t take the old me into my new experience!!!!

Change of Posts

I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with this blog; as you have probably figured out by now I’m not a great one on blogging or keeping a  journal and so I’ve been deciding if I should keep the blog site or let it go. I really don’t want to end it as there is great information here but something new needs to be done. And then as usual I got the most wonderful idea. I write notes each Sunday I attend church and I thought this would be a wonderful place to put my notes! I would love to post the YouTube videos from the corresponding service with my notes for that day however I’m still learning how to do that. Not every Sunday notes will be given, just the days I attend. I will date each set of notes and please remember these are MY notes and MY opinions of what I hear; it may not be what the minister or speaker was trying to get across, my notes are a reflection of my understanding.

I’m starting my blog with March 30, 2018 and yes, I’ve missed two Sundays in April (smile).  So welcome to the understanding of Shakeela.

Changing Blog Name

I have decided to change my blog name from Fed Up And Fighting Back to Faith Won The Day.

Everyone involved in the fraud (see old posts below) has been convicted in federal court, given serious jail time or in the case of one probation. I am through with these folks so I have decided to bless and release them therefore its time for a new blog name. Now there may be times I have to post something regarding the fraud but I think once the last one finally starts her prison term posts regarding them will be few and far between. I will naturally post when the disbarred attorney begins her prison term.

I will move over everything from the old post to this one and keep the old post as the name Fed Up And Fighting Back may come in handy again.

Happy

Breakthrough

We had our first “Breakthrough” service at my church Friday evening and I really wasn’t prepared. I thought all my breakthroughs had come and gone; I knew what I needed to know and how to deal with them. I was so wrong! Just when I got to thinking what else is there for me to deal with that I haven’t already here comes God and in my case He showed me “My child, we have a lot to work on, you are no-where done” I will not go into the circumstance that brought me to this realization other then to say I am a tad pleased with myself, I held my tongue in the face of diversity and learned something from it. I don’t have to take the bait, play someone else’s game or fall into a trap. My blessings, empowerment, purpose and impact are mine to learn from and if possible share with others. I might write more on this later, I just had to put my thoughts down now. It is amazing how when I think I am in a place where I will not be tested God shows there is no place where a test will not come and it is up to you to stop, think and see it for what it is. I did not allow myself to become stressed out or go into another’s plan.  THANK YOU GOD for guiding me, for giving me the lesson and letting me see that all of my teachings have not been in vain and that I can control me and learn from the experience also. I have been blessed my whole life, every experience, every task, every relationship, every encounter have been in my life to get me where I needed to be, to learn and keep on stepping. I finally recognize that all that has happened has been for my benefit, my knowledge and I am so thankful.  THANK YOU GOD!!!!!

Blessed
