Little Girl Dreams - It is Time!

I really do not know how to start this blog post, but I am choosing to type (speak) from the heart.

How did I get here...? I could only imagine what my younger self is feeling about who and what I have become thus far. I am inspired to have a conversation with her....that little girl with high hopes and dreams. When did I stop daydreaming?

Sometimes in life we just have to step back and put things in God's focus. You cannot figure out life on your own and neither can you live this life with peace, love, power, joy, happiness, and sound mind without God. As I pour out, I pray that you gain a new perspective and this helps you in your life as well. I love you all.

Let's just be honest....

I commend you for your ability to never give up. However, I do not like what I see. You cry and worry way too much over things that God has given you the power to speak over. This fight is not yours. Hand it over....to GOD!

I commend you for your ability to figure everyone else out and hold their deepest treasures. However, when are you going to look at me in the mirror? Stop being insecure. You are enough. You are rare for all the right reasons. God made you beautiful. You are fearfully and wonderfully made.

I commend you for surviving thus far, but it is time to live. Yes a lot is at stake but the crown of life is worth so much more. You are a ruby...more than diamonds and pearls.

I admire your giving heart and spirit. However, when will you put your gifts to good use? This little girl is cheering and waiting on you. God needs you to push through.

God has given you a voice not just to sing but to speak for those that walk/tip toe in silence. For those women who know there is something missing but cannot seem to put it into words. You are a wife and a mother. Your wait is the time to serve. These gifts are not your own.

You can have a life of FreeDom if you start to believe like you used to. See, this is nothing new for you. People see your light but you continue to allow it to dim. The enemy has been on your trail this whole time. BUT for once and for all, it is time to STAND UP & OUT!!!

Sing like never before, Teach like never before. Speak like never before. Write it like never before.

This is our time...I am just here to remind you, QUEEN.

I will make you proud little girl :) My words are coming into action and I aint got no worries. I am a QUEEN. I have a Father in heaven that loves me more than any man can. He is waiting on me. Blessings will pour and this moment will be marked down in my story as the day of breakthrough and overcome. The day that changed everything. The start of my new book and my new day. I declare I am awake and willing to run with God until eternity :)

Hope you, yes you ;), reading this feels the same way and speak these similar declarations over your life. God wants to bless you...what are you willing to sacrifice? What is your inner little boy or little girl hope for you? Are you making them proud today?

Peace to you and love always - Dominique

Happy Fathers' Day!!!

Thank you God for making this Fathers' Day a great one. It was so peaceful. This year marked 2 years since my dad passed and being able to have this day of peace and reflection of his life and all he was to me as a father on earth...all I can say is thank you God!! God, You allowed me to have a dad in my life. I cherish all the wisdom, fun memories, and his unforgettable presence and spirit.

I hope everyone enjoyed this day with their fathers. If not, I hope you made this day a great one. It is blessing to be alive. Do not take it for granted...not one second. It is so much better to smile and rejoice in the day God has made. :)

Let's Talk: Forgiveness

"And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.” (Mark 11:25)

We all have our shortcomings and struggles. This life can truly be a fight. Apart of this fight to keep pressing forward is forgiveness. It is a definite way to show you are an heir of God. God loved us by offering His son as a living sacrifice for our sins. Surely, you can forgive your brothers and sisters here on earth by removing grudges and releasing your internal bitterness towards whomever. It does not matter how harsh the doing was towards you, you have to release yourself and forgive.

Forgiveness is truly for you. You have a life to live that cannot prosper with the weight of unforgiveness hindering God's blessings for you.

When you forgive, it is not only an opportunity to set yourself free of the past, but it may open the dialogue in some cases to bring others to Christ. Ultimately, this is the end goal.

Whatever God requires, I am willing to obey. Are you?!

This world is already too full with bitterness and strife. I do not want to add to the pot and I hope you want better for yourself and this world too.

So on this beautiful Sunday, I hope that you forgive those that have done wrong by you and keep them lifted in prayer. God will honor this act and bless you.

Read: Colossians 1:13-14; Matthew 6:9-15; ; John 3:16

I hope everyone is having a great Sunday. I love you all!

Let's Talk: Worry

Do not worry about tomorrow, today has worries of its own. (Read Matthew 6:34)

I am definitely guilty of worrying about things I have no control over or that are avoidable. Worrying is not healthy and only leaves you in disgust or worse, depression.

Some worries are avoidable like being prepared for a test final. Living a carefree life is a choice and right at your fingertips if you are willing to put in the work. When you put in the work, you have no time to worry. 

Some worries are uncontrollable like when a love one is in the hospital. When traumatic things happen in our lives, it can feel like a set back and in an instance, everything you thought life was is not. Everything is upside down. Even in those moments, God presents Himself as a present help. Nothing in life has to be faced alone. God is always there.

Try to remember to live in today's moment. You have the right to feelings and emotions in their right time and place. However, the key to any worry, big or small, is to pray and trust in God. 

You can choose to let your worries bring you close to God or away from Him. I have learned to trust God in one of my imperfections, worry. He has shown Himself over and over as a comforter and friend.

Meditate on these scriptures: Proverbs 12:25; Psalm 55:22; Matthew 6: 25-34; Matthew 11: 28:30; Proverbs 3:5-6; Philippians 4:6-7

I love you all! Hope you are enjoying your Sunday and weekend :)

Let's Talk: DO NOT Give Up! (Affirmations)

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9)

God's word stands on its own. 

This is definitely my season of learning and growing in the present moment. No more are the days that I will dwell on the past or ponder the future.
I speak these affirmations over my life, and you can use them in yours as well. :)

My work, the words from my mouth, and my walk will and is showing the true works of God. I am a goddess, an heir of the King, GOD! (Read: Galatians 3:26-28; James 2:17-18)

I am taking responsibility for my actions and working unto the Lord. (Read: Colossians 3:23-24; Ephesians 6:7)

I do not compete or try to follow man's way of living. God is doing new things. (Read: Galatians 1:10; Romans 12:2)

I am allowing room for God to handle what He does best. Only God knows the plans. (Read: Jeremiah 29:11)

My dry bones are coming to life. (Read: Ezekiel 37)

I am no longer afraid of loneliness because I am never alone. God is with me. (Read: Deuteronomy 31:6)

I am walking boldly and confidently in my destiny and purpose in God. (Read: Exodus 9:16: Proverbs 19:21: Jeremiah 15:11)

I am not getting older...I am renewing. All will and is restored. (Read: Psalm 51:10; Isaiah 40:31; Lamentations 5:21; 2 Corinthians 13:11)
I have never wanted God so much. I have never thirsted for His presence as I do now. For that, I view my circumstances and environment through a different perspective and I am loving the new ways I am hearing God. Nothing is impossible for Him. He is truly amazing. When I thought I had life figured out, He comes to show me new things. It is a wonderful adventure, and I am looking forward to laughing with no cares. He has given me visions and dreams that I cannot fathom right now. I am not perfect and He takes all my imperfections and makes them great. He uses all of my life not just the parts that are pretty (lol). He is working with and for me. What a joyous time and place to be in my life right now where I literally have no other options But God!

One step at a time. Piece by piece. Thought by thought. Day by day. I do not allow my mind to wonder too long. The word of God is my sword and is a treasure to my life. God is truly an ever present help.

I am in preparation mode. All things are coming together the way God plans. Everything is working for me by faith and for His purpose. (Read: Romans 8:28)

I am grateful for divine connections and the convictions God is using to correct and discipline my mind.

It is not easy not even for one second but this challenge (opportunity) is worth not giving up for. From me to you...Do not give up!

If you have any affirmations that you speak over your life, share them below in the comments (sharing is caring ;))

I love you all!
