I am putting my own house in order, so I would not be blogging for awhile. I have sent for and received Sharp bedrooms, Moben kitchens and Dolphin bathrooms brochures, looked on websites for sash windows, loft and basement information, getting planning permission. There was a church conference with the likes of TD Jakes, Bill Winston, Tudor Bismark, Junita Byrum, and many others which started on Sunday 24th August to Sunday 30th August, but I will not attend, because I have to put my own house in order. Charity begins at home. So I have removed old bedding, smashed up old furniture, old televisions, threw out old carpets, cleaned, scrubbed, polished and I am still cleaning and looking at more things to throwing out the old, which are like fig trees in my life. I even throw out some things at 12.30 a.m in the early hours in the morning. It had to go. As you say, I am in the middle of de-cluttering my house, my life and me.
Deuteronomy 6:11-12 And houses full of all good things, which thou fillest not and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shall have eaten and be full;
Then beware lest thou forget the Lord, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
My version Dear Lord El Shadda, according to your words : Deuteronomy 6:11-12. I thank you, that I am able to fill my house and my other house, which I will get in the future, with all good things, the sharp bedrooms, the mobed kitchens, dolphin bathrooms, the loft and basement being done and have my fridge and wardrobes stocked with all good things to eat and wear and the money to pay for the very best.
I thank you Lord, that I can think big and you have brought me out of a poverty mindset. I thank you for being my Jehovah Jireh and providing me with all these things and more, in Jesus Name Amen.

You can have it all. You always hear that we can't have it all. You can't have your cake and eat it, and have you noticed that whenever a question is asked, would you marry a man who was young and poor or old and rich? We always seem to be faced with one or the other, why can't we marry a man or a woman who was young, rich and beautiful, beautiful in looks as well as ways. In the old testament, God constantly talked about prosperity and richness.
Deuteronomy 8:18 But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth theee power to get wealthy, that he may establish his convenant which he swore unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth, but thou shall mediate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein for then thous shalt make thy way prosperous and then thou shal have good success.
Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich and he addeth no sorrow with it.
In the new testament, Jesus also continued the conversation of prosperity.
John 10:10 The theif cometh not, but for to steal and kill and to destroy: I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.
So when I looked up the words, abundant and prosperity in the dictionary. Abundance means a quantity that is more than enough, plenty. Abundant means more that enough, plentiful, having plenty of something, rich.
Prosperous means financially successful. When God and Jesus talked about abundance and prosperity, meaning that the person, was abundant in all areas of their lives, so they would have an abundant relationship with their spouses and they would have abundant relationship with their children and they would have abundance in their bank accounts, so they would not have to want for anything. They would have abundant health, a new house, lots of clothes, shoes, or whatever they wanted. They would be blessed with material wealth and well as spiritual wealth. A person would live a wholesome life, they have a sound mind, sound body, sound wealth and sound health, nothing missing, nothing lacking. They should be whole. They should have peace, they should have Shalom, which is a Hebrew word, which is more that just peace, what every they need they should have, deliverance, righteousness, prosperity, health, wealth, happiness, joy.
So anyone who tells you that money doesn't not make you happy, they are ususally people who have money, in that case you should answere, 'you give me all your money', you would soon see, how they would react. Proverty is a miserable existence, it is horrible, boring, dull, painful, unbearable. Poverty leads to illness, sickness, it destroy marriages, the family. We have to bring heaven on earth. We all know that we will eventually leave this mortal realm, but while you are living here, you want to live a full, abundant, prosperous, success, rich and plentiful life. Say out it loud, 'I am rich', 'I am a billionaire' and confess this to yourself that you are a billionaire and imaging your billionaire lifestyle, your fabulous wedding, your gorgeous husband or wife, your beautiful children, your houses in the Hamptons and Caribbean, your yatchs in Monte Carlo, shopping trips to Paris, going to fashion shows in Milan, skiing in Switzerland or Aspen, USA. and when all that money is manifested in your life, help other people to have the wealthy lifestyle also, building schools, universities, and hospitals, praising in God's name. As Jesus said in Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God: and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. That can be anything from growing your hair long, buying a house, appying for a job, writing first your novel or whatever you choose to do. The more you discuss and ask advice, you start to get wisdom and wisdom saves a whole lot of time and energy. Some of us come from backgrounds, where our family like toil and hardship, if it is not hard, it is not good, but when it is hard and prolonging, it is a waste of time and energy. Life is too just short. You want to live a full, live it loud and large! travel the world. Don't let anyone tell you, that you shouldn't have it, or it can't be done, or it is impossible. Mark 10:27....With men, it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible. The God we serve, likes big things, he loves expansion, growth, development, he loves variety, look at the different races of people, different trees, flowers, plants, herbs, animals, he likes to share in our dreams, he likes to be part of our plans. He likes to listen to our ideas, but religion makes us put him in the distance future, remote, far off, not relevant to our lives now, but having a relationship with God, he is in the present, the now. So if you want to get the car, or fly that plane, ask God to how to do it and he will guide you. He will grant you favour and bless you, so that your life will be rich beyond your wildest dreams.
So make your vision boards and stick pictures of your husband, your wife, your children, your houses, gardens, yatches, aeroplanes, money, your businesses.
Habakkuk 2:2-3 And the Lord answered me and said: Write the vision and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth and for the vision is yet for an appointed time , but at the end, it shall speak and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Speak to your vision board, talk to your vision, it, think it, surround yourself with like minded people and call your vision into being.
Romans 4:17b And calleth those things which be not as though they were. Ask believe and receive and thank God for your husband/wife, children, houses, properties, money, riches, bank accounts overflowing with so much money that the bank has to ask you to borrow money.
Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that I ask or think, according to the power that worketh in me.
