The Power of Tithing

Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. Malachi 3:10a

Did you know there is power in tithing? If you didn't know it's probably because you are not a tither.

Tithing is a subject a lot of Christians do not like to discuss. They don't like the idea of giving up their money, especially if they think it's just going to go into someone else's pocket. They say "I can't afford to tithe", or "the preacher already has enough money".

When Christians say that, their looking at the wrong thing. First, and foremost, we can't afford NOT to tithe. And the word says that when we tithe Jesus receives our tithes. (And here men that die receive tithes; but there He receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that He liveth.) Hebrews 7:8

So ultimately, when we tithe, yes, our Priests receive the tenth here on earth, but Jesus receives the tenth in Heaven. Do you get it? We are not tithing to our Priests, we are tithing to our High Priest!

And I have to tell you from experience how tithing has changed my life. There was a time in my life where I thought "I'm not taking hundreds of dollars out of my paycheck to pay tithes, that's too much money. " And then I began to really receive the teachings on tithing, and I was convinced that tithing would change the dynamics of my life forever.

Here are just a few things you can expect as a tither:
  • Empowerment from God to be blessed in every area of your life.
  • A chance to honor God for what He has already done for you, and what He is going to do.
  • The windows of heaven to be open for you; blessings to be poured out into your life.
  • Provision - (Genesis 28:20-22)
  • Protection - (Malachi 3:11)
  • Your children will get the benefits of your tithes. (Hebrews 7:9-10)
  • Lastly, to excel in the grace of "giving" (II Corinthians 8:7)

And those were just to name a few. Do you now see all the Power your ten percent provides? I once heard a minister say "it's only a dime on every dollar you make". Seriously, a dime. Can we not spare a dime, considering Jesus spared His LIFE?? Think about that!

I have faith in you!! I know you can do this!! We'll do it together!!

Why Do Skinny Women Get More Respect...

Okay, let me first start off by saying, I do not think like Monique. I love skinny women. I aspire to be skinny again one day. Who am I kidding, I wasn't skinny... LOL! I was a size 8, and that was comfortable to me. And being a size 14 now, I would pay good money to be a size 8 again. I would probably commit a crime, to be a size 8 again. Kidding, I wouldn't commit a crime.. Or would I.. Hmmmmm :)

Anywho, what brought this on was, my calendar is getting super busy... I'm being pulled into more, and doing more with my business. And my first thought was "I need to drop 50lbs immediately!". What brought that thought on!?! I'll tell you what, I know that smaller women are more respected. People look at skinny women differently in the corporate world.

And, I work to hard, not to be respected. There is more to me than my size, but I don't want people to tune me out, before I even get started. Now, I am secure in myself... Let's NOT get that t…

One Year of Prep - Day Five

Good Evening Peeps,

Wow, has it been five days already? I kind of had a rough weekend you guys. I have been eating everything in sight. I had an extremely boring weekend, and apparently that's all I can think to do. :-(

I didn't have much going on this weekend; I had a meeting yesterday morning which didn't last very long. And the remainder of the day I laid in bed watching television and eating. Who does that!?! Oh, I do.. That's who!

I had great intentions, I just didn't follow through. So, losing weight is one of my goals this year. I would like to lose about 70lbs. So starting tomorrow, I am making a commitment to myself, all of you, and God to only eat when I am physically hungry.

If I don't get this eating thing under control now, I am going to be 300lbs before I know it. No offense to anyone reading this, and weighs that much. But for me and my life, the life God called me to live - being that big is a no go.

I actually want to be skinny. About 135lbs…

Start Where You Find Yourself

"When he came to his senses, he said, 'how many of my father's hired men have food to spare, and here I am starving to death"! (Luke 15:17)

How many of us need to do as the prodigal son did, and come to our senses? How many of us are going day by day, living "prodigal lives"? Here is some definitions of a Prodigal Life:
Living excessivelyWastefulCostly RecklessLacking cautionThoughtless You may ask, what does a prodigal life have to with the title of today's blog. EVERYTHING!! You have to know where you are, before you can start where you find yourself. Just as this son began to realize where he was, we have to do the same thing. He realized that he was in a pig pen starving to death, because of his prodigal living, and he came to his senses, and started where he found himself.
He had to hit the reset button on his life, but, he had to come to his senses first. And that's what we have to do, when we find ourselves in prodigal living. We …
