Satan is an intelligent enemy! His cleverness tricked Adam and Eve into sinning against God. He will always tempt us with something that we enjoy - that thing that he knows that we struggle with or want so badly! If he knows what you desire a husband, be careful because Satan will send an Ishmael and make you think that it is Isaac! Don't let him win! Come on over the the Blog to learn 5 Ways to GET EQUIPPED for Victory! Continue reading

As mighty women of God, we must develop the uncanny ability to know when to speak and when to be silent. Our silence has the power to calm a raging storm. Some of the wisest people are those that know when to hold their tongue. “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” (Proverbs 18:21 NIV). Grace is the gift of God’s unmerited favor. Just as He gives us this wonderful gift, it is also His expectation that we pass it on to others through loving them as He loves us. God wants us to have mercy on others and to possess the grace to be silent as an act of love and understanding. The Bible says that there is "A time to keep silence, and a time to speak" (Ecclesiastes 3:7). Come on over to Read the full post! God Bless you! Continue reading

I love to talk about spiritual growth because it is so important as we continue to walk with Christ! Jesus does not intend for us to remain babies in Christ. As the days go by, our growth in Him should happen just as an infant grows. Anything that is not growing or changing is dead! Paul speaks the verse below as proof of God's desires for our spiritual lives. Today's Spiritual Growth Tip encourages you to keep a Prayer Journal - Your love letters to God. Come on over to the Blog to read the full post! Continue reading

Ruth refused to leave Naomi. She was drawn to her so much that she sacrifices the comfort of family to travel with Naomi - who led her to her destiny. Be a woman that people are drawn to and not away from. Be the kind of woman that considers the needs of others, sometimes before the needs and desires of yourself. Be loving and show the power of God through the life that you live. God used Naomi to bless the world by being in the lineage of Jesus Christ. God wants to use you too! Come on over to read the full post. Continue reading

WOW!!!! Dianna, this was a GREAT article and perspective on the truth behind the fame & the money. So many people are focused on the "things" when Christ is calling all of us to a higher place where He will provide our every need and give us the joy that nothing on earth could ever provide. Thanks so much for this inspiration! It definitely helped to put this "Bad day" into focus and now I am having a Great one! God Bless you! ~Tanika

I recently had the opportunity to read and Romans to Jude - Precise Christian Scripture Revealed. This book has been penned a How-To Guide for Unveiling Authentic Gospel Truth. This book is a great resource to help Christians effectively study the Bible. It provides strategies for mastering the Gospel. White writes "If we ever hope to develop our spiritual minds to great complexity and depth, mastering basic principles is required." We must read and know the Word for ourselves that we can recognize false teaching. Come on over to read the full review! Continue reading

Weak moments - something that everyone will experience at multiple times in their lives. Moments where nothing is going quite as planned. Moments where you feel that your labor and your obedience is in vain. Moments where you want to crawl under a rock and cry out Why God? When God? Do you hear me God? These are your weak moments. This doesn't mean that you are weak, nor does it mean that your faith is weak. It simply means that you are human and you are being tested. But these are the moments where you must stand on God's promises and His plan. Read more for encouragement on being able to stand! Continue reading

You are my family, friends, sorors, brothers and sisters in Christ! I know that I haven't posted any blogs in the past two weeks. Some of you have reached out to check on me and to inform me that you have been missing your "Outpour of Inspiration". I really appreciate those calls and emails more than you know. I haven't had the chance to post any blogs because I have been diligently working on a vision that God placed on my heart a few years ago. This vision became a thought, then a hope and then a dream. I procrastinated on this for a while but as I began to develop a deeper sense of spiritual growth, I had no choice but to be obedient and move forward with what I know God wants me to. Because you all are so special to me, I wanted to share the news with you first. - SO here we go....Come on over to www.tanikajones.com to learn more! Continue reading

The loss of a loved one is never an easy burden to bare. By with God, it is nothing that we cannot handle. I recently prayed that God would heal a friend of our family, but He saw fit to take His angel from this earth.

If you have every prayed for God to keep your loved one here after illness or injury and his will was different from your desire, then you can find encouragement in this blog.
