Breaking Bread for 1.23.20

Scripture

For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.

Deuteronomy 30:16

Reflection

How simple is this command, yet how difficult we struggle with fulfilling our promise to God to love Him, obey Him, and do everything He asks of us?

Amazing isn’t it?

Can you imagine how many more blessings we are missing out on simply because we can’t follow this command fully?

Our choice to place conditions on our relationship with Him, restricts us from having the type of relationship that we need—and ironically, that we truly want. We’re walking around sabotaging the beauty and blessings in our lives and before they manifest.

Remember what I said yesterday about finding and connecting with that inner child, your lost child. It is that essence that frees you. It is in that mind space that you let go and let God. Without need to control or constantly question, out of doubt.

The Kingdom is inside of you. The peace you long for is already inside of you. God is not removed from you. He is not detached. He is not absent. He is within you and around you. Just reach out.

Prayer

Father, I thank You for Your patience and care as I walk and stumble, frequently, on this path that You have placed before me. I want to be obedient, keep Your commands, decrees, and laws.

I want to love You fully and unconditionally. I want to do right, live right, and be free in righteousness. I know this can only happen if I follow and obey You fully, completely, and at all times of my life.

Thank You Father for understanding my struggle, fear, frustration, and uncertainty. And never leaving my side as I work to be more like Your son— and more like the child You created me to be. Thank You for my countless blessings Father. Continue to bless me and enlarge my territory. Amen.


Love, Natasha

Breaking Bread for 1.22.20

Scripture

Do you not know?

Have you not heard?

The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.

Isaiah 40:28

Reflection

If you are God’s child then why would you not act, behave, speak, think, and live accordingly? Why doubt yourself if God doesn’t doubt Himself? Why be fearful if God fears nothing?

Think back to your childhood before you had fears. Before you knew about the boogie man, the danger of heights, that all dogs bite, that there are poisonous plants, snakes and spiders. Before you knew that elevators, trains, vehicles, airplanes, helicopters and buses crash.

Think back to the time before you learned about judging people based on their color, sex, sexual orientation, religion, political views, etc. Think back to when you just saw another child and although they looked different than you in your mind there was no difference because they too were just a child.

Can you remember?

That was the time you were most loving and forgiving, fearless, most curious, and had a spirit that wanted to know all, see all, experience all, question all, and live each day to the fullest. You didn’t want a nap because you didn’t want to miss out on anything. You didn’t want to go to bed at night because you just knew something exciting happened when you were asleep.

Remember your life before you knew about sin, sickness, disease, and death? You were taught these things. They weren’t your reality. You were pure, unfiltered, and untouched. You were whole and complete, without question.

Where did that child go? Where did that purest form of God’s reflection go? Find that child inside of you. Find that fearless and loving child and walk through life with your head up, back straight, eyes and mind alert, and ready to accept any and all challenges.

I’ve come to this bold declaration that I shared with my family and a friend moments ago. A bold declaration that I speak to myself today and beyond…

There is no sin, sickness, disease, or death. Jesus proved that. Saying there is when he says there isn’t, is calling Jesus and God a liar. Don’t be fooled by your senses. Don’t let someone or something else’s inputs be your outputs.

Don’t let the unreal rule you. Don’t make it real. Don’t give it space to grow. Don’t give it a room in your home, your body, or your life. Don’t give it a millimeter to stand on. Call it out and kick it out! Let your inner child step in and declare there’s no room for anything that blocks you from expressing your fullness, from experiencing fullness, whenever and wherever.

Don’t invest in the lies. If it’s not of God then why give it power by speaking its name?

Call it for what it is—a lie!

The enemy feeds off of you believing and speaking the lie. It needs you to give in 100 percent so that the lie consumes you. When your focus is more on the lie than on God, you’re more inclined to believe that something or someone other than God is the solution to your problems.

Just like a manufactured picture or video can cause havoc in your life and on your reputation, once you prove its falsehood, the chaos ends. Once you prove the lie to be what it is, there is no power in it. How adamant would you be that the picture or video was a lie created to look like truth?

Then why aren’t you as adamant about the lies being told to you every single day? Even right now as you read this you hear the lies that say your circumstances, diagnoses, prognoses, are unique and different. The lies say your situation is real and can’t be fixed, at all or at least—not by God.

Call on your inner child, the one who knew no fear, spoke life and truth, and loved without question. Do you remember you from way back then? That’s the energy and the light that you need to tap into. God’s perfection. It’s still there. It’s still within you. You just need to break these mental bonds that have you believing the lies.

Align with God for perfect alignment in all ways and areas of your life. Don’t let circumstances dictate to you. Your joy and happiness come from God not from what happens to you.

When we give attention to the lies we unknowingly say there is more truth, power, and presence in the lies than in God.

And that’s a daggum lie.

But what we think about, invest in, and obsess over is exactly what we manifest.

Today WILL be a great day because it’s another day the Lord has made. Nobody and nothing can change that.

So screw the aches and pains. They’re a mirage. They’re temporary. Stand strong in God’s healing presence.

The bill collectors are calling. It’s only temporary. Declare God’s awareness, presence, and capabilities. Declare the solutions are within grasp. This is a temporary situation. Pray for clarity and discernment to see God working through you and others. Don’t panic and make the decisions for God. Do you remember the small child you were before you knew about crashes? Well, stop snatching the wheel. You’re gonna make things crash fast and hard.

Make decisions to be aligned with Him in perfect harmony!

Whenever something opposite of this creeps up trying to nestle in my life, I’m gonna boldly say these words. There’s no room for that nonsense in our lives. If it ain’t God’s it ain’t ours!

When you find your inner child let me know so he/she can meet up with mine and they can help to save the world together.

Prayer

Father, since You never grow tired or weary You are always making things happen, watching over Your children, and creating the inconceivable. While I may grow tired, You are the fuel and strength I need to get up each day. You are the fuel and strength that I need to work, study, exercise, and be a blessing to others.

Father-Mother, You are the light that destroys darkness, evil, sin, sickness, and disease. You are the love that brings people together to stand up against injustice everywhere—for all of Your children. To believe in You is to believe in myself. To doubt You is to doubt myself. So if I doubt myself then I am disrespecting You, because in turn I am also doubting You and Your power.

I can see clearly that I am in You and You are in me and we can never be separated or incomplete. I will continue to face my fears, laugh through my frustrations, and smile in the face of those who despise me, envy me, doubt me, and don’t truly know me.

I won’t invest one minute in the realm of negativity. I won’t hide from challenges. I won’t back up one foot to fear. I won’t tell myself and others the lies of sin sickness, disease, and death. I won’t participate in their falsehood. Because none of those actions are representative of You and Your greatness. Since I’m of You, I can’t and I won’t allow myself to live any other way but in and through Your greatness.

Thank You Father. Thank You for loving me enough to patiently wait for me to open my eyes, see, make the decision, and take the first step to living the right way—Your way! When I begin to doubt, slip into fear, I pray to You to remind me of this declaration that I speak. Remind me of my boldness and wholeness through You. You are my anchor. You are my everything. To You I give all thanks. Amen.

Love,

Natasha

Breaking Bread for 1.21.20

Scripture

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.”


Galatians 6:7-8

Reflection

What we think about we bring about. What we desire and seek, whether good or bad, will only bring forth good or bad seeds. If you have ulterior motives that are centered on self and pleasing the flesh—you will fall into darkness.

Don’t be deceived into believing that you can trick, mislead, or fool God. He is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. I only want good and pure seedlings, so it is my intent to only plant good and pure seeds. What are you planting and reaping?

Prayer

Father, knowing my heart as You do, You know my intentions, my thoughts, and my desires. Cleanse my heart so that it may be aligned with You, so that I might only sow goodness to please the Spirit and not the flesh. I never want to disappoint You Father. In Your name I pray. Amen.


Love,

Natasha

Breaking Bread for 1.20.20

Scripture

All a person’s ways seem pure to them, but motives are weighed by the lord.


Proverbs 16:2

Reflection

If in your walk you have reason to question whether what you are doing is right in the eyes of the Lord then you already know the answer. If there’s a possibility of harm, negative disruption, and having to repent—stop what you’re doing right now.

You’re not walking in God’s light. That’s a flashlight aimed over you by the enemy. The enemy is giving you a fake accent light and you think it’s God.

Open your eyes and see that you are being led to the darkness. Stop right now before a domino set of dysfunction comes tumbling down in your life.

But if you care not to even weigh your decisions, if you casually do and say whatever you want without consideration to whether it is of God— then God will of course weigh things with and for you. I’m just trying to help you steer away from the drama that awaits you.

Prayer

Father, You know my heart and I pray that my motives are aligned with Your expectations and plans for me. If they are not, I pray that You swiftly and lovingly re-direct me so that I do not have to learn the hard way. Save me from the painstakingly and extremely long way. Help me to discern and be clear through Your clarity. In Your name I pray. Amen.

Lovingly,

Natasha

Breaking Bread for 1.17.20

Scripture

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

1 John 4:18

Reflection

Fear is absence of light and love. Fear is loneliness. Fear is not of God. God is perfect love and we are His reflections. Hence, we are perfect. So why do we fear?

We fear that which we can’t control or don’t think we can overcome. We fear missing out. We fear loss and lack. But let’s examine those concepts.

Control

Control is only possible through God. And He defines and determines what control is in our lives. We always get it backwards thinking the creations dictate to the Creator. If you want to control something, control yourself. Control those negative thoughts by not acting upon them. Control the words that come from your mouth. Control your behavior. Don’t blame the enemy for the choices that you made. Own up to your foolishness, realign with God, so the healing can begin.

Egomaniacs are often at the helm of systems of corruption, incarceration, trafficking, slavery, and mass destruction. They ignorantly believe that they have total control because they have helped to reinforce a system that forces others to be subservient to them. The reality is, they are the weak and fearful, not the people who they rule an iron fist over.

It is their inferiority complex and rampant insecurities that lure them into thinking that others are inferior and weak. They keep reciting that until they believe it. Then their insecurities need others to co-sign their beliefs, so they go into recruitment and alignment mode—seeking out others like them or those who will enable them.

They can’t face and overcome their own internal demons, so they take on the characteristics of those demons. They become what they fear. And they confuse that for strength and control.

That ignorance has the enemy’s name written all over it. That is also why the plan will always backfire at some point. The slaver becomes the enslaved. Funny thing, the enslaver is already spiritually and mentally enslaved and doesn’t even know it. God always has the final say.

FOMO is the fear of missing out. Rather than thinking you’re missing out, seek the clarity to see what God is preparing you for. You can’t be distracted by what others are doing, while God is lining things up for you to do greatness in His name. While you’re goose necking everyone else, you’re ignoring the opportunities and lessons in front of you. You are the reason you don’t have the blessings that you desire.

Loss and Lack

We will always live in a deficit if our minds are always obsessed over what we think we don’t have. Or always depressed over what we once had. Our behavior tells God that we don’t have faith in Him and His abilities to do anything and everything. How can you expect more when you don’t have vision? Those without vision will perish.

If you’re depressed over a loved one transitioning, do you fear that the loved one is not still alive—on another level of existence? Do you fear they aren’t in a good place? Or is it just the loneliness of them not being here? Where do you stand in your faith and commitment to God?

Each day you should be living out loud, celebrating the life and legacy of your loved one. You should be doing everything they envisioned and prayed for you. You should be having the experiences they dreamed of having themselves. Honor them through your life.

Fear feeds the enemy. You must starve the enemy.

Take back your life and live it aligned with God’s perfect plan.

Prayer

Father in You I find light, love, truth, joy, kindness, forgiveness, peace, tranquility, life, understanding, grace, and strength. Remove my fears Father. Help me to see that fear is false evidence appearing real. And that, is not love, and is not You. With fear there is darkness and with You there is only light. I seek Your light and truth Father. I want to live in Your peace. I want to be free. I give You all the glory. Amen.

Love you all,

Natasha

Breaking Bread for 1.16.20

Scripture

But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

James 3:14-16

Reflection

When our eyes are on someone else and what they are doing, or what they have, we lose focus on what we are supposed to be doing— and where we’re supposed to be going. We are also losing ourselves in a dark pit of envy. When this envy grows into anger, resentment, and bitterness, if we aren’t careful to atone, we allow our light to be smother by the darkness. You don’t want a life where only darkness can be found. So don’t contribute to it.

When we align ourselves with people just to use them for their status and where they can take us, we are setting ourselves up for an eventual failure. This is selfish ambition. When we are ladder climbing with only one goal in mind—our own success, regardless of how it may affect others— this is selfish ambition.

We must free ourselves from envy and selfish ambition. We must turn away from the darkness and turn into God’s light. There is no life, truth, and life in that darkness. Only haunting energy, there to feed off of your light. We must resist. We can resist.

If you’re envying others, stop. Look around you, at what you already have, and be a great steward of what you have before you, so God can bless your good and faithful works.

If you’re currently ladder climbing off of the backs of other people, stop it. Make right your wrong. Make whole that which you’ve trampled over. Find the ways to serve and stop being self-serving. Reach back and downwards to lift willing hands towards their next victories.

Nothing good is earned alone.

Someone helped pave the way. Someone made introductions. Someone said yes while others said no. You may see your ambitious climb as the efforts of your labor. Actually, it is through your laziness, which God despises, that you used others to lighten your work load. Admit your wrongs, realign with God, and remain focused on obediently following His lead.

Prayer

Father, let my focus stay on You. Let my heart and mind be connected with You. I pray for humility. And freedom from envy and selfish ambition. Help me to discern my thoughts, emotions, and where my actions are leading me. I don’t want to do or say anything, or be anywhere that goes against what You want for me.

If it doesn’t build Your Kingdom and reflect Your goodness then I want no part of it. I only want peace in my life. And envy and selfish ambition will bring me nothing but pain, discomfort, and misery. I pray for a clean heart, and a mind free of worldly clutter. Father, help me to always see that what You have for me if for me, and what You have for others is for them. May I learn through acceptance, not pain, to be content with the blessings as they are delivered. Anything less, is an insult to You. In Your name I joyfully pray. Amen.

Lovingly,

Natasha

Breaking Bread for 1.15.20

Scripture

“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.”

Psalm 56:3

Reflection

In our fears we must look for God’s light and run to it. Let His presence soothe you, clear your mind, cleanse your heart, and restore you. Turn to God for comfort during troubling times no matter how big or small. They may seem unbearable or too difficult to you—but nothing is too big or too small for God to handle.

Know it. Believe it. Trust it. Embrace it. Today is your day to make the most of the moments or squander them. It’s your choice.

Prayer

Father, there are times, like right now, where I am fearful, doubtful, and confused. Instead of worrying, feeling hopeless or helpless, or questioning why this is happening to me—I will trust You. I know that You will never put me in a situation—or let me stay in one— where I am not protected, and that I can’t handle.

I have to believe and know that everything happens for a reason and from each circumstance comes a lesson to be learned.

So I will dry my tears, release my tensed shoulders, and breathe. Knowing that with, in, and through You there is a solution— and this lesson will be well-learned and short-lived.

When doubt creeps in, please release me from the bandage of fear. Help me to refocus on You. Help me to lean on You. I thank You Father for what You have already done, what You’re currently doing, and what You will do for me. Amen.

Lovingly,

Natasha
