Move, Get out the way.
If you ain’t down for the cause, you better get out of our way.
Good morning Christian parents,
Extracted from our Bible Based parents forum...
As a christian Parent, is your parenting Bible based or just Secular parenting ? There is a huge difference :
Be intentional, when you get it right with one generation, you might be working out the purpose of God concerning the next generation. :
The truth is that it is not only about your child, it is also about your grandchildren.God is trying to raise the remnants through you. Be more intentional in your parenting. It is bigger than you think #biblebasedparenting #christianparents #children #teens #destiny #generationallegacy #partnerwithGod #familywordcentre
He alone is Life who gives breath to all beings, big and small. Possessive, because He got it under control. His plan is perfect; your indecision and disobedience is not enough to deter His Good Will. Who are you, oh pitiful child, to alter the course of life, predestined by the Father, the Perfecter of all?
I’ve struggled to build my security on His promise, leaving me to doubt myself in endless ways - my post-graduate life, career path, my roommates, my job title, financial stability, my family’s wellbeing l, and even my appearance. Built on foundations other than God, My security fluctuated. Without a rock foundation, my life tossed and turned. But after many humbling circumstances, my Father kept pointing me back to Him. His love is what makes me secure, knowing I am God’s. He loves recklessly, even for the recklessly broken - He mends me and makes me stronger. My appearance, my bank account, and my accomplishments do not define me. I am God’s. And that is who I am.
GOD’S got it.
His mighty arm is swift, quick to serve justice. He is a father to the fatherless and the champion of widows. Do you believe that He will come to your rescue in times of great need? His silence can be more deafening than strikes of thunder, more terrible than the trembles of earthquakes. My impatience can mistake His silence for absence when I know deep inside, He is right there, pleading me to trust Him.
God’s GOT it.
It is finished. It has been declared victorious, claimed by the victorious King who conquered death and endured all sin. Why, you of little faith, still doubt Him? Remember His good deeds, praise His glorious Name, and exalt Him forever on high. None can compare to Him. You do not realize Christ is all you need until you realize He is all you have.
God’s got IT.
Here are a few more of the funny memories I had from the POVA marketing and ministry internship. Special thanks to the Anderson family for hosting me and the POVA church for giving me an experience I’ll never forget. For anyone curious just know that they are an inspiring group of humans seeking God in Potomac Valley Virginia. Love y’all VA! 🙏🙏
I’ve been AWOL...
To the one known as Luke Cage, Swaggie P, Terese, Big Sack and God Knows. Shout out for being someone that has always pushed me to be better whether it was in the gym, kitchen, fashion, and the dancefloor. I appreciate your patience In training me in all those areas. I’m super grateful for not only how you’ve cared for me but also my family. I’ve seen you make a lasting impact wherever you go. You amaze people with your humility and inspire people with your strength. I hope to make you proud big bro, thanks for being dope. 🙏😭
Lately I have spent a lot of my time with my clients looking at the generational dysfunction in their families they have carried on with them into their lives and passed onto their own children.
If you yell at your children, more than likely someone yelled at you. If you saw abuse in your family, you’re much more likely to abuse as well. Infidelity, alcoholism, addiction, denial, blame, weakness, toxic behavior, how to handle pain, these are all things your little eyes would have watched in loving adoration of your parents and they modeled for you how to do it. So if it was dysfunctional, you learned how to be, well dysfunctional through the words, actions, behaviors and attitudes of those that came before you.
But we can’t blame your parents either, because that’s giving you a pass to continue to be a victim and #thecyclecontinues
once again. We could throw stones back 10 generations if we wanted- yet it will only continue the dysfunction.
Someone has to step up.
Usually, when someone reaches out to seek help or go to therapy, it’s because the PAIN in their lives and their relationships is so extreme they need help to make a shift. Regular therapy focuses on this person’s individual thoughts and behaviors but many times fails to understand how these behaviors and attitudes were imprinted into their subconscious from an early age and our subconscious is what runs us.
In working with these people they usually have a lot of guilt that traditional therapy hasn’t worked because it’s been focusing on changing their behavior and not on how powerful this generational contract is.
We then look at starting to really identify and unravel these generations of dysfunction that have been offloaded to them. These people seek clarity, validation, and guidance to help them acknowledge and address these dysfunctional patterns.
These are the game changers, the warriors who are seeking to change the trajectory and the legacy they leave behind to those they love, to those who carry on their name.
I challenge you that if dysfunction has been rampant in your family, that you be the one to pull the ripcord and step off at the next line. Change your Life to Change your Legacy♥️
My earthly father once wrote to me: “Think about God as THE FATHER who look[s] out for your good and that with Him, you can accomplish anything you want in life!” …need I say more?
GOD is good
🎵: Chance the Rapper - Blessings 2
Is means to equate. For GOD IS GOOD, the nature of His being is life and love. In Him is Light and no darkness. When something is good, that is God. For in Him and through Him, all things were created and declared good. God created us and deemed us VERY GOOD. How good is God? God. Because He is.
God IS good.
🎵: Ebrahim - iHeartBobby
There is good and evil in this world. There is such thing as right and wrong. For sin entered the world through one man and devastated the course of human history and continues to do so but we are redeemed through the sacrifice of Jesus on that brutal cross. God is so good. Knowing fully well that we could walk away from Him, He still loved us enough to give up His Son for the good of humanity, for us.
God is GOOD.

Transition means living in a new place and I am more than blessed to be with a family of strong, believing brothers. Please visit us so we can feed you!
“Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity! It is like the precious oil on the head, running down on the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of his robes!”
Psalms 133:1-2 ESV
Today, we experienced The Experience: riding to and from church full of dope people, snacks, and good vibes; all-Boston worship service with my extended family of brothers and sisters; and a Harvard food run and kickback with the homies.🔥🔥
Posts like these remind me of the immeasurable blessings God has given me despite my continual struggle of doubts, insecurities, and fears amid my life of transition.
Can’t thank God enough for what I got! 😭🙏
Better late than never... but here are some behind the scenes footage from the Forbes Under 30 event 2 weeks ago in Boston! 🙏
I’ve spent about 10 years trying to figure out/create my path where I’d be after college. I had an initial plan but God told me no. Instead l live with my brothers, doing video editing and DJing and end up at an event like this where I was able to meet so many young entrepreneurs and visionaries...something tells me this is simply the beginning. Shout out to @jxysing
and Nairobi for the hook up! God is always good‼️
Just me being me. Opening up boxes and being reminded of who I fight for. I have my wife, my children, my parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, my friends who are family regardless of the distance between us. I fight for family and loyalty. I fight for #TinoAHerrick
. I fight to #EndMentalSegregation
. However, I forget that I'm fighting for me too. I get so caught up in trying to hold everyone else above water that I take on more water than safe for my lungs and I nearly drown. So far I've needed resuscitation a few times - thank you Dr Marks - but family and loyalty keep me fighting. That and the fact that I'm grown enough now to have the childhood I always wanted, not the one I was forced to have. I can let my #blerd
I found this picture of myself that makes me always aware of the #blerdlife
(brown nerd) I was destined to be. I love numbers and letters, words, musicals, algorithms, conversations, art, inventions, circuits, robotics, puppets, cartoons, books, plays, nature, animals, people, museums, parks, music, laughing, learning, life. I used to care that I was different, but as I look my life I realise I am successful. I know because the people I'm around are a reflection of that success.
Mind you, I am still striving to do better, be better, to end the #GenerationalLegacy
of fighting for basic rights, ending parental separation, generational ignorance, struggling to obtain higher education, being labeled an adult at 18, pushed out into the world with a boatload of expectations on your newly minted "adult" shoulders, seperating the world by colour, struggling for self acceptance. I'm ending that with me. Yeah, I'm a nerd and I love me. In fact, I'm amongst the originals of the #GangstaNerd
Do you love you? Show yourself some love today. Happy #SundayFunday
. Told ya to #staytuned

Look in the mirror. Wow. You possess a beauty that pervades and glows in exactly the way God intended. YOU are a talented beast, finished with the kiss of imperfection - a cute birthmark. You are created in His Loving Image. With passion. With purpose. With potential.
YOU got this!
Denoting action, not the act of getting “got” (tricked, defeated), but of you go GETting it! Visualize your dream, internalize your vision, and actualize your pursuit!
Picture it, draw it, hug it, taste it - in your hand is the tool to create and maneuver.
The sculpture is simply hidden within the block of marble, and only you have the ability to unravel its splendor.
You GOT this!
This or that...not that, but this! It’s where you are, the opportunity you have, the resources surrounding you now; everything has converged to this point, to where and who you are right now. You are not that person or that thing over there.
You are here. Now. THIS is your moment‼️
You got THIS.
🤗 Enjoying this beautiful day with my family and counting my blessings.. Remember.. When your share your blessings unselfishly GOD will always bless you unbundling!
I thank God for my vision to create @tbsfacilityservices
over ten years ago and my nonprofit @thephoenixreintegrationproject
over three years ago. These businesses have been a vehicle that has allowed Delane, Bria and I to open closed doors for family and friends by creating short/long term employment opportunities, training and financial donations to several families and nonprofit organizations. We always reached back to bring someone alone the ride with us.
This week two doors closed however, three bigger doors open! 💪🏾 “A blessing for a blessings”
So on that.. Me and my cubs going into hibernation until January 2019! Yep, the pool is heated 🏊♀️ Vacation started yesterday 🤣💪🏾. P.S-Remember... Never forget where your blessings came from and most importantly never bite the hands that feed you. 😜

This has always blown me away. .
Your grandmother carried you in her womb while she created your mother. All the eggs a woman will ever carry form in her ovaries while she is a four-month-old fetus in the womb of her mother. This means our cellular life as an egg begins in the womb of our grandmother. Each of us spent five months in our grandmother's womb and she in turn formed in the womb of her grandmother.
Generational imprints carried in our cells.

The problem is we look but we don’t see. Most of the time, we’re squinting because the noise is soooo loud we end up looking at the back of our vision as it escapes from our self inflicted chaos. Learn to put several meetings with just “yourself” on the agenda. Don’t get caught up in the short term milestones....Work your vision till God says stop 🛑 .
