Breaking Bread for 1.31.20


Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.

Ephesians 5:25


Imagine how life would be, how our world would be if men and women truly loved each other with the purpose, passion, devotion, honesty, conviction, and commitment— as Jesus loves us.

Think of a world without infidelity, abuse, dishonesty, violence, and cruelty. That would be a world that really represented God’s Kingdom.

In what ways would our personal lives change if we made an effort to be honest, faithful, committed, loving, and caring? Think about it and then share your thoughts.

Enjoy your last day of January! Let’s get ready for February!!!


Father, thank You for the love You share with me. That love overflows into the lives of people that I love, and those that I grow to love increasingly. Father, let me love as deep and with as strong a commitment as Your son Jesus loves. Let me see the world as You intend, and let me approach life as You command. In Your name I pray for courage, as I take my next step towards being more like Jesus. Amen.

Update on My New Book…Books…

Hi Breaking Bread family! I want to give you an update on my book. I try to be as transparent as I can about me, my life, and my projects. The same is true with the books I’m writing. As many of you know, I’m writing a book that is motivated and based upon my journey through Breaking Bread. It’s bolder, more challenging, and more proactive.

Let me share the latest

Well folks, long story short…my book is too long, way too long. It’s so long I wouldn’t even buy it. I would just keep walking by it in the bookstore or keep scrolling past (on my computer). And if I bought it, I wouldn’t read all of it. I’m serious.

So what does that mean?

It means your girl (me) has to split this book into two. Yep, two. Yep.

Two books. With a reasonable amount of pages. Enough to interest you but not repulse you. Because if I wouldn’t want it, why in the world would you?

The Process

It sounds way easier than it is. I have to figure out how to transition half of the book into a new one, seamlessly, using the same editing software. I also have to trace any parts of the book where I may have pointed my readers into another part of the book. If that part happens to be in a section that will be in the new book, then I have to adjust the wording accordingly.

Then the endnotes have to be adjusted, and I have tons of those. If you knew how many sources I read, studied, skimmed, and then had to accurately align with my commentary. Uugh. It’s painful.

I’ve asked myself a few times, “Why did you feel the need to provide references for your readers?” And my reply is always, “So they can read and learn for themselves”. I want readers to have a new experience. Not to be merely entertained or pumped up on a short-term spiritual high.

I want people to start taking the steps towards their own breakthroughs, to have a different type of relationship with God, self, and others. So I’m being obedient in typing and sharing what God pours into me.


This has felt like the longest labor and delivery experience EVER, but I know it isn’t. I know it won’t be. There’s lessons and blessings in this experience. I was blessed to write the words that encompass this book, or I should now say, books. I was. I am.

I knew there would be at least two volumes and at least two additional books that would align with the concepts shared. But I didn’t realize how much God was pouring into me and how that was translating into pages, and bodies of work. I hoped that with formatting, the word count wouldn’t convert to the number of pages that I calculated. Joke’s on me. Calculations were accurate.

My desire was to have this content as one book, then I could continue writing the content for volume two. From there I would consider writing one or two more volumes. Now, as I pray about this situation, I’m waiting for clarity—with this book being broken into two volumes, does that mean I only have to write one additional book to serve as the third volume? Or is God directing me to do something else? I’m waiting for clarity.

God’s Time, Not Mine

I have a bad habit of jumping before I’m told, rushing into things before He gives me the green light. I’m choosing to break that habit. It’s exhausting and time consuming having to walk back to where you were supposed to be before you excitedly broke loose. I have to laugh at this experience. Through my groans, I laugh.

I can say that I’m blessed to be in this position. I would rather have too much content than not enough, or worse— none. I’m glad to be in the position to question where to realign content, than to question when an idea will manifest into written/typed words. I’m being blessed with abundance, so I don’t dare to express a sense of lack, simply because it throws me off of my desired schedule.

These books can be started at any time. Readers don’t have to wait until the first of the year to begin. You begin the day you open the book and start reading. I’m going to stop stressing or being bothered by man’s calendars. I’m going to let God do what God does. I’m going to get on His master calendar.

Had I worked off of His timeline in the very beginning, I wouldn’t be in this situation right now. My lack of focus and discipline kept me behind schedule. I own my goof ups. One of many lessons learned.

So When, Then?

If you’re wondering when you will be able to get your hands on this first book—all I can say is soon. I took off Tuesday and yesterday from editing. I was exhausted. Mentally and physically.

Today I sit down and begin to trace my content. I don’t want you to read something that points you somewhere in my book, just to find out it’s been moved to the second book. That would just suck. I want you to be encouraged to transition to the second book, to continue the spiritual journey.

So, that’s my focus today. If I can effectively trace and rewrite those directives today, then I can begin highlighting the split of the endnotes, and then figure out how in the world to transfer half of the content into a new book using the same editing software. I know there’s an easier way than what first comes to mind. I’m going to pray to God for guidance on that.

I keep telling myself, “All of this is done to glorify God. It’s the act of love!” Today I take the next steps, in love, to do as I’ve been called to do. Please pray for me!

Breaking Bread for 1.30.20


Watch what God does, and then do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that.

Ephesians 5:1-2


We must be God’s reflection in every aspect of our lives. God doesn’t just love one type of person, He loves all people. He loves those who love Him, those who don’t know Him, and even those who say they don’t believe in Him. God is love.

We must learn to love all people regardless of how they look, how they behave, how they pray, if they pray, and whether or not they believe in God, another god, or multiple gods.

We must love all people regardless of the color of their skin, where they live, or how much money they make. We must learn to love passionately, intentionally, and deeply. We must learn to love without expecting anything in return. You can love afar if you can’t love near. Just love.

Jesus loved and loves us regardless if we followed (and still follow) him or not. We must give our all like Jesus. You don’t have to agree with or align with a person to love them. You may not like them, but you can still love them.

God created them just like He created you. You’re just on different paths, having different experiences, and struggling in different ways. Can you fathom that concept? Try it.


Father, I want to learn how to love like You, and live the life You expect of me. Touch my heart Lord. Redirect me when I stray. In Your name I pray. Amen.

Breaking Bread for 1.28.20


His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.

For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.

2 Peter 1:3-9


Enhance the positive and loving characteristics and attributes you possess, and work to build and strengthen those elements that you don’t express fully, doing so as God would intend.

The only way you will be effective and productive in any aspect of your life is to follow the lessons of Jesus and the word of God, our Father. As long as you fail to have faith and embrace God’s goodness, you will remain nearsighted and blind to God’s reality for you and your life.


Father, with You all of my needs are met, all of my wishes and dreams are fulfilled, all of my goals are accomplished, and all of my fears are diffused. You never break a promise to me and You never lead me astray.

Thank You Father. Today I want to reinforce the things that I have read in the Bible, and the positive affirmations I have recited. Today I want to add to my faith in You and my belief in myself. Today I want to gain and maintain self-control. I want to persevere even when mounting fear dumps doubt all over me. I want to be mindful and intentional in all that I do.

Father, let Your love that fills me constantly grow and reflect You. And let this love guide my feet, heart, mind, mouth, and my actions. I want to be effective, efficient, and productive in my personal life, in my career, as a student of Your son Jesus Christ, and in helping to build Your Kingdom. Let me see clearly near, far, and in between Father. In Your name I humbly pray. Amen.

Love you all!

Breaking Bread for 1.27.20


The quiet words of the wise are more to be heeded than the shouts of a ruler of fools.

Ecclesiastes 9:17


Wisdom does not always have to be spoken aloud. It may not be expressed with words. In our desire to be right we can become so passionate and vocal, that we out talk and talk over others to make our point be heard. At some point, a reasonable sound level is surpassed, and we’re yelling and screaming trying to get someone to agree with us. Louder doesn’t mean right.

Remember—the loudest in the room could be hard of hearing or the biggest fool, but not necessarily the one to pay attention to. That person could be you. If that’s you, then get your hearing checked or reconsider allowing God to guide you and speak through you. Or deal with the fact that people will only listen to roughly 20 percent of what you’re saying, and retain less than 5 percent of that.

I tend to raise my voice and yell out of excitement and anger. The longer I speak, the louder I get. And if someone is speaking louder then for some reason, I choose to speak louder instead of at a lower tone. It’s as though I perceive their loudness to mean they’re hard of hearing, so I speak louder so they can hear me.

Before long, the volume level between two or more people is unbearable. Someone has to give. Someone has to intervene and say, “You guys are loud”. Then we all look dazed and amazed, either apologetic or in denial about our role in the shout down. And the conversation resumes at a more acceptable tone and volume level. Thank God for interventions!

I know that people tend to tune their hearing towards lower tones than higher ones. Yet, in the passionate exchange of trying to be heard and trying to be right— let’s be honest with ourselves—I and we, let logic and wisdom fall to the wayside, and the fool emerges. Even if what we’re saying is true, it doesn’t matter if the words are being launched like missiles to someone else.

We have to remember that communication is supposed to be a two-way thing. Perception is everything. It either enhances or destroys. We tend to either tune out those who are speaking loudly, or we choose to engage in a war of words. Either way, the intended message will never be fully heard.

Don’t let the fool in you prevail. Ask God to intervene. He may choose to silence you so that you listen more than you speak. He may choose to silence you so that you speak through your actions. He may guide you through speaking at lower and much reasonable levels. Whichever route taken, it’s 100 percent better than the route the fool in you will choose. I can guarantee that!


Father, I ask for wisdom through Your guidance and Word. I desire the knowledge of experience, to apply what I’ve learned. May it benefit me and others. I seek to learn from the teachings of mentors and advisors. And from learning from others mistakes, failures and achievements.

I ask that You silence me when words are not necessary, and help me to control my tone when You expect me to speak up and speak out. When I speak, may others hear, see, and feel You. Guide me through wisdom and away from the stage of fools.

In Your name I forever and humbly pray. Amen.

Breaking Bread for 1.23.20


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


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.


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


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


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.


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.

Breaking Bread for 1.21.20


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


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?


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.

Breaking Bread for 1.20.20


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

Proverbs 16:2


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.


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.

Breaking Bread for 1.17.20


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


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 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.


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,
