My Raisingurls…..Cree’s Blog

I met with my Raisingurls on Sunday for dinner and a meeting. I had a lot of
thinking and praying to do about how I was going to go about my group. It was
kinda stressful in a way because I knew that having 15-20 gurls at one time was
going to be too much for one person. I would have to pick up at least 4 gurls at
different locations and when I would get back to my house, at least 10 would be
there waiting for me. I didn’t like that one bit. After the meeting I would have
to take those same gurls I picked up home, and then maybe 2-3 would need me to
drop them off. Thinking back on those days April-Nov, I wonder how I was doing
it all those months alone. LOL I wanted to do this so badly it was nothing
physically, but it was mentally. But this year…… I prayed on it, and I
thought about it a million times.  I decided that I wanted to take in 3-4 gurls.
And it was the best thing I could do.
I sent a letter to each of the gurls and their
parents and I told them that I would pick them up for dinner with a meeting on
Sunday June 26, all I ask is that they bring a pen. They did. Before we left one
of my gurls called me and told me about her friend who lives a few doors down,
and how she should be apart of the group, I told her that when I came to pick
her up to have her friend there so that I could meet her. When I first pulled up
to the house and laid eyes on her, I knew right off that she was the one. I am
so happy to be apart of her life, the things this young 16 year old is going
through is a movie, book and all of God. I’m just so happy right now. At dinner
we talked about everything!!!! LOL Gossip, boys, homelessness, God, FB and
building Character, how to keep your credit in good standing. We had a nice time
The thing that I LOVE MOST is the fact that I can
give my ALL to my gurls. I can give them the one on one that they need. They
told me in the meeting that they’re happy that its only 3 of them, because when
it was a lot of them, they said they couldn’t talk to me like they wanted, and I
knew this, but………there was nothing I could do then.
So, check this out. Before we went to dinner I
took them to pick out some body sprays, because I’m ( true story) going to a
baby shower and instead of them buying something for the baby, I wanted them to
help me pick out 3 fragrances for the mother. I told them to chose the one that
they want buy. After wards we went to dinner, had our meeting and then I passed
out homework. I gave them 2 sheets from the bible about the story of Joseph.
They had 2 days to read it and when I got in touch with them on Tuesday they had
to answer all my questions about the story. I told them that the fragrances were
for them ( they were so happy. LOL LOL LOL), but they had to answer my questions
before they could get them. Tuesday came, and I got in touch with 2 of them and
hope to touch with one today. They answered all my questions and were very
interested in why his brothers did him that way.
What makes me smile and happy is the fact that I
can take them to the movies without asking 3-4 parents to help drive all 31
kids. We can have hotel parties, go bowling, out of town, I can afford dinner
for them all without having them to ask their parents. I’m happy that this is no
longer on my mind, it was really starting to get to me, after prayer and really
thinking about it, I KNOW this is what I’m suppose to be doing. I’m

Cree’s Class 2011~The Faith of the Centurion

Welcome to Cree’s Class 2011
The Faith of the Centurion

Matthew 8

 5 When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. 6 “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly.” 7 Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?”

 8 The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

 10 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith. 11 I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. 12 But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

 13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that very hour.

Tell me that you all got that?

Here this man who goes to Jesus, he says Jesus look… servant is paralyzed  and he needs to be healed. He knows that Jesus is going to say… okay, I’ll go there to your place to heal him,so he says to Jesus…. I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. He said BUT just SAY THE WORD. JUST SAY THE WORD. JUST SAY THE WORD,, JUST SAY THE WORD, JUST SAY THE WORD, JUST SAY THE WORD, JUST SAY THE WORD.

That’s deep in the streets!!!

Now let me go deeper. This man had MAD FAITH.His servants did what he told them to do. In my “mental video” of this story I can see that the man faith came in the area of his servants obeying him making things happen. So to me he expected Jesus to not only be able to heal his servant, but to make it happen from where he was. It wasn’t a doubt in his mind that Jesus could do it, as a matter of fact he didn’t even want or need for Jesus to go to his house and heal this person. He just wanted him to “Say the word” and he KNEW it was a done deal. And you can bet that’s  probably the way he is with his servants, a man who does what he says, and expect what he needs done, it will get done.

People with little or no faith will want Jesus to come to their house. No way would they believe that he could/will heal their servant without PHYSICALLY being there. They want to know how long its going to be before he finish with the people before him, what time, what all do THEY need to do. I can see it now. They would be trying to give Jesus directions to their house to make sure he knows the way ( little or no faith). Which would mean, they wouldn’t believe that he could make it. LOL Yall know its true.

You have to really be careful with what you ask for. God is always looking to see if you trust him. I know he told me something years ago, and I was too blind to see that what he said would happen, I AM NOW already living in it. And even though it hasn’t came full circle, I some how keep sabotaging  it. I don’t exercise enough patience. But NEXT time around, I’m going to be ready. I already know and I already see it. I don’t have the desire to rush it, to keep talking about it, keep thinking about it, or keep trying to get it to come faster. In my mind its “whateva wheneva” God says. And that I’m standing on.

My question to you…. Do you have enough Faith to believe that God will do what he says he will do for you?
