Encouraging Notes/BLOG

Here are some notes from a book that I’m reading. I found them interesting enough to share.

  • One should become impersonal and learn what each man has to teach him, and soon he would learn his lessons and be free.
  • No man can attract money if he despises it.
  • The attitude of mind, of course, separates man from his supply. He must be in harmony with a thing in order to attract it.
  • I know a woman who went about bragging of her own troubles, so of course, she always had something to brag about.
  • God is my supply for every demand.
  • Man, himself, limits his supply by his limited vision.
  • Vision and action must go hand and hand.
  • Many people have attracted disease and unhappiness though condemnation of others.
  • What man condemns in others, he attracts to himself.
  • Man pins his Faith to one channel only, and dictates just the way he desires the manifestation to come, which brings things to a standstill. My way not your way is the Command of God!

God revealed ……. From the desk of Cree

prettykitchen

God revealed some very interesting things to me today…. about myself. LOL Its funny… only God to explain and give me examples in the way he does.

My daughter and I met today with our family realtor to look at 3 homes. My daughter and mom both have an VISION to see a tore down, jacked up inside and out home…………… beautiful.

I DON’T.

When I go into a home, * and we go quite often* it has to be nice and pretty for me to like it. In other words…. “move in ready”. I get instantly turned off by homes that has been demolished, and need work. I’m really NOT a good person to take with you when buying a home. When I feel weak floors, see stained carpets, spooky basements, cob web closets, broken windows, nasty walls, sinks and bathtubs, chip tiles, I just CANT! I have absolutely no vision to see past these types of interior issues. You can find me half way through the tour looking scared in a corner, and ready to GO!!! LOL

This one place we saw today, people were still living there, that made it even worst for my vision, because ALL OF THEIR THINGS were in the house. I can’t mentality take out their things to add mines. I don’t know why I can’t see past this. My daughter was saying… “and we can take this out and add that”. “we can gut all this out, then we can knock this wall out”. I’m standing there saying to myself… guuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurl… lets get out of here!!! LOL My mom and daughter can draw…. I can’t. They can pick out furniture to match the carpet, tile for the floors, certain types of sinks for the bathroom…… and poor me just standing there like…. ” God why can’t I see this type of vision?

Just then…. he took me there. He told me that it was okay. Everybody can’t have the same vision… its okay he said.

He reminded me how I can see the beauty and the restoration in a person who is homeless, someone beaten, abused, raped,and abandon. I can see a glorious life for them once they get the help they need. Some people feel that there is NO HOPE for these people. I don’t see it that way. He ask me… how many times have someone told you, “you give compliments to everybody”!!!! A lot I answered. He said that’s because you can see the beauty in people. You have the gift to see past the pain. You love people, you can see the best in them, you can see beyond their current situation. And I’m standing there like WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW!!!!! In my mind…. I’m thinking that everyone should be able to see the beauty in others…… GOD SAID…but they don’t.

So when I walked around these houses today with my face sorta twisted, he said …. just because YOU can’t see the beauty in these homes, DOESNT MEAN THAT IT CANT BE DONE…

I JUST LOVE GOD!!! I JUST LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE HIM!!!

Short Term Goals……………………Crees Blog Entry

crester
Ever since the end of Dec 2013, I’ve been making chances in my life.. that some people just can’t seem to get with… OH WELL. This train is moving.
 
 
Already I am seeing changes. Someone told me once, we know what we need to do to change, the problem comes in with doing it. And boy is this the truth. But I’m so proud of myself for really saying ” Okay La’Crease, this is your year”. Not only that… but I’m doing it.
 
 
Bishop TD Jakes is doing a 4 weeks series on Transformation… and its FIYAH. I know I should be at my own Church on Sunday mornings, but I’m addicted to his teachings. He speaks to me. Not only that, but he speaks to what’s going on in my life at this time. Today was week 2, and if you want you can catch it on his website. I have notes, and homework… YES HOMEWORK.
 
 
Here are TO ME the most important of my notes
  • write- the vision
  • build – according to patterns
  • invest- in what is truly you, to what I am about
 
 
Bishop asks…. What turns you on? He says Urges are temporary impulses, it makes withdraws and NOT deposits….. Instincts makes deposits * I LOVE THIS PART*
 
 
HOMEWORK- What is the will of God concerning me? Who am I? What is my truth? What makes me happy? What makes me alive?
I finally know my answers. Someone ask me these same questions, and I really didn’t know. But I do now. So I’m happy.
 
 
In other news. I L O V E POP.. And I know for a fact I could put away a 20 ounce plus a day. Around the 28th of Dec.. I made a decision to cut the pop out. Since I know this is a process. I have decided to only drink it 3 times a MONTH * trust me this is a small number compared to what I’m use too* I get to chose the occasion. So far this month I have had one drink of pop and I let it get very watery…that’s also a plus for me. I love strong pop. Well anyway…I ask my daughter how is it that she gets so much done, and stay so Focused. She said mommy I write down short term goals. She said I do this with everything in my life. I write short term goals, and long term goals, and she says she focus on doing them.
 
 
Now, I’m the kind of person who can plan a Women’s retreat for 2015 AND DO IT.. I CAN PLAN to have movie day, dinner, concert and DO IT. I can sit here and plan my homeless dinner out for the next 2 years, menu and all…. AND DO IT. I’m a GREAT PLANNER. If I tell you I can’t do something, trust me.. I really can’t. But if I agree to do something because I know I can… then its a done deal. So, after talking to Nesha about that. I went home, came up with a 6 month weight loss plan and how much I plan to lose in a month, and what I plan to do as far as making it happen. It was a done deal in my mind. See, that’s the thing about me… I NEVER FOCUS ON MYSELF, ALWAYS ON OTHERS. And even though its ALWAYS, ALWAYS ALWAYS SPIRITUAL with them… still… its NEVER about ME.
 
 
When I started cutting down on my eating, walking in my building, drinking water, and NOT POP….I am 2 pounds away from my goal weight for JANUARY and its only the 13th. My goal weight is 9 lbs. I am so proud of myself. I’m almost embarrassed that I don’t set short goals…. I’m always going for the “LONG TERM GOALS”. IM EXCELLENT AT them… never even thought about short term goals.
 
 
July 1, 2014.. I’m giving myself a photo shoot….I can’t wait!!!
 
 
Be Blessed

“I’m Gods gurl tough ……BUILT TO LAST”. Crees Blog

Thank you Lord for loving me, and sharing with me
the things I ask you to allow me to understand at this time. My mind runs deep,
and there is not a pen fast enough to catch all of this stuff. But there is one
thing I do know….and that’s my purpose for being here.
After leaving funeral services for a man I have
been knowing 32 plus years, it was clear to me that no more time is to be
wasted, what seemed important seem so minor to me. After listening to testimony
after testimony of how he touched so many lives, just made me sit and cry. My
momma kept looking over me, handling me tissue. But I wasn’t crying about his
death, because he had gave his life to God 2 years ago. He was the one who did
all the maintenance in the building ( his baby brothers Church), helping people,
giving the shirt off his back, he loved to cook, and had nicknames for
everybody. I remember being about 12 years old, I was messing with him as usual
and I made a mistake and ran * really ran* into his cigarette as he sat in the
car, with his arm out of the window. He felt bad about it too. I was so mad at
him, but I knew it was my fault playing too much. LOL As bad as I hated that
burn on my light skin at the time…. I’m happy that its there, to remind me of
him…Lloyd.
Sometimes, I complain about how overwhelmed I am
about my projects, Sistergurls, Raisingurls, my family, friends, work. I
realized at the funeral that “I’m Gods gurl tough ……BUILT TO LAST”.  God has
shown me the influence I have over people, and situations. And I was afraid of
the Power. As I understand my gift, I’m learning to be consistent, which is
really hard for me, but I’m working on it, and its working out pretty well. Time
after time he has shown me, without saying a word how I have the power to move
mountains……and I believe it. That amazes me, there is so much more to do,
and I’m not afraid anymore. I would cry ( happy) right about now, but I
can’t…. I won’t the assignment is already in the book. It’s okay…. I
see….. I know.
My calendar is filled to the brim up until Oct,
and for some reason I’m NOT feeling any pressure. Habakkuk 2 says:
2 Then the LORD replied:
“Write down the revelation
and make it plain on tablets
That’s exactly what I did. I am learning that I cant shut myself
out from the world because I want to be left “alone”. Sometimes I feel that I’m
being pulled in all directions, and most is probably all in my head. LOL I’m
just going to look ahead and do what I have to do. I may seem as if I’m talking
in circles, but I’m not.  We are having dinner at The Motor City Casino $25.00
a plate, but its worth it. We can sit talk, laugh until the next day. Its
important that I meet with my Sistergurls every so often, we have so many issues
that goes on within our families, and if I can touch on them…. I will. I post
on Face book and so many people come to me and tell me how they look forward to
my post, and how they encourage them. This lady who use to work with me, stopped
me in Walmart last week, and asked for a hug and told me how she wakes up
everyday to read one of my stats. That really blessed me because I really didn’t
know people paid attention. This is what I’ve been talking about. There is no
more time to “make friends”, its time to get people to turn to God. I try to
live a life pleasing to God so that people can see it. This is why I have to be
careful of my circle of friends, what I say, what I do, because people watch me.
God is very tough on me on what I say and think….yall just don’t know. Very
tough. He gets down on me TOUGH… READ IT AGAIN ….TOUGH! LOL
My Raisingurls called me and as bad as I want to squeeze them in
this weekend, I can’t. So, tomorrow I’m going to call them and tell them that
we’ll meet next week at my place. I went on line and pulled out an application
for Subway, just so that they can learn how to fill out an application PROPERLY,
and then in the weeks to come, how to do a resume for a career job. These are
important things they should know. I have 2 gurls who are 16 and one 12. We will
have Bible study and that will be on The Tower of Babel. For those who know me,
I  LOVE TO ASK QUESTIONS….so I made up a 20 questionnaire to go over as a
group. LOL And boy can I come up with some questions. LOL

Well, I’m off to bed, how bout its 6:50 am….but I’m off today
so it’s gonna feel good sleeping. Be Blessed!
