I am excited about sharing these practical principles from my new book 7 Steps to receiving the Desires of Your heart, a biblical approach to true prosperity. Teaching you how to discover your destiny, fulfill your purpose and live your dreams.

 

This book was birthed from a lifetime of confusion and lack in my life. I was confused because I could see those in the “world” prospering or at least being able to pay their bills on time; while I was reading about prosperity or needs being met in the bible, I was struggling day by day. Barely getting by, living only by faith (that’s all I had to hold on to) to feed my family and pay my bills on time. My life was full of lack. Of course God was always faithful and right on time, even if it was during the 25th hour. What I didn’t realize then, was that the faith I was clinging to was all I really needed.

 

I traveled around the country for over ten years following successful, wealthy and seemingly happy men, yes men I was usually the only woman at the conferences; to top it off; these wonderful gentlemen were all white and middle-aged. What that told me (subconsciously) was that unless I could bleach my skin, speak with a southern accent and turn into a middle-aged man, I would never reach the level of success any of these men had. They took me into their confidences, taught me positive thinking, proactive and productive ways to change my life, but nothing really worked for me.

 

As a result I began to seek out God’s way of prospering His people, because 99% of what these men where teaching me was already available to me according to the word of God. The thing I couldn’t figure out was how to get from where I was to where the word said I should be. Nobody taught me principles (truths) and practices (things I should do) to get there.

 

During these next few weeks together, my desire is to share the principles and practices I have found vital to my personal success with you, and I know if you apply them to your life they will help you too. Let me stop here, I am not teaching name it and claim it or how to use the word of God to get rich quick. What I am teaching is sound scriptural truths that will lead you to your God-ordained destiny and allow you to live your dreams and fulfill your purpose.

 

Now, the first step to receiving the desires of your heart is to seek the kingdom of God.

 

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and all his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you, Matthew 6:33.

 

I believe that in order for anyone to have real success, find their true identity and live fulfilled, happy and whole lifestyles – they have to have a personal relationship with God. I know some of you are thinking I must be kidding, no I am not! You have to go to the source if you want the substance. God is the source and if you seek Him first, all these things or the substance you desire will be added unto you.

 

You shall have the desires of your heart as long as they are in line with the word of God and His will for your life.©

 

Seeking the kingdom of God means to go after the things of God; it means to find out why you are here and what your purpose is on earth. Once you discover your destiny your life will be full of joy, peace and happiness.

 

I’m not going much further with this step because I want you to get the book and use the workbook portion to find out more. However, I will have you get a pen and piece of paper and write down everything you have ever wanted to be, do or have. Trust me, your God-given purpose and destiny are directly tied to your heart’s (minds’) desires, Psalm 37:4. There are things God placed in each of us to cause us to long for our purpose or THE plan He has for us, Jeremiah 29:11.

 

This week seek the kingdom of God, by seeking His will for your life. Write down all the things I stated before and you will begin to see glimpses of the future God has planned for you; a future full of joy, abundance, health, happiness and purpose.

 

Believe it or not, your desires will lead you to a closer relationship with God.

 

For now just follow the steps and watch what the Lord has in store for you, 1Corinthians 2:9.
