Brrriinnnngg! Class is now in session!

If you’ve been walking with Our Heavenly Father for any length of time, you already know—–when He calls you out to walk on that water, you need to “gets ta’ steppin” with the quickness!

Will you be ready to make the move He’s calling you to make? Probably not. I can’t recall a time when I was actually “ready” to faith walk. Will you be capable of making the move though? Absolutely! 1 John 4:4 says, …..greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.”

Here are a few tips that I’ve used to help me leap, jump, sprint, & lunge when He “calls me out upon the waters”…#oceans..

  1. Don’t try to “feel” ready.-Let’s face the facts-if you could do it in your OWN strength, you wouldn’t need Him. Do you really think He’s going to let that happen? #nahhhhh He designed us to be dependent on Him, so don’t wait until you “feel” ready to leap.  2 Corinthians 12:9-11 “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My (God’s) power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
  2. Let go of “your” plans.– Many times we don’t leap when He tells us because we have our own plans of how things should unfold and when life looks the contrary, we begin to think maybe we should wait for life to look the way “we” want it to before we leap. Like the movie Frozen tells us…”Let it go, let it go…”
  3. Disown fear & pick up courage.– Fear will try to knock you out every chance it gets. IJS. You betta’ not get caught slippin! Here’s a thought, meditate on this instead- 2 Timothy 1:7-“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” Fear is NOT a part of your DNA.
  4. Trust Him!– How do you do that sis? The easiest way, is to take a walk down memory lane. Recount ALL the other times King Jesus came through in the clutch for you! #howboutdat
  5. Feel the love.– The only way you will feel confident leaping, is if you know you are loved. Am I right or what? Love propels us to do some amazing things! Love will have a mother dart in a burning building, snatch her kids out, and come out unscathed! #beastmode Meditate on scriptures that show you how much your Abba Father loves you. He will never lead you into harms way! Zephaniah 3:17, “The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by His love; he will exult over you with loud singing.” AND Jeremiah 29:11- For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” AND Zechariah 2:8 “For thus said the Lord of hosts, after his glory sent me[a] to the nations who plundered you, for he who touches you touches the apple of his eye.”

This will get ya started much? You got this, & He’s got YOU! LEAP already! I’d love to hear some of your tips in the comments. Let’s grow this list & continue making faith moves!

What To Do When You’ve Been Single For A Long Time

Screen Shot 2019-05-05 at 7.38.36 PM.png

  1. Develop an INTIMATE & AUTHENTIC relationship with God. This is the most FREE, UNINTERRUPTED TIME you’ll ever have in your life if you desire marriage. Take advantage of this time to really get to know Him and develop history (click here for last post) with Him. The PERSONAL relationship you have with Him will change the game for your marriage and beyond! Learn to hear His voice clearly (click here and I can help you with that), learn how to pray down walls, practice walking by faith, practice being a doer of the Word and not just a hearer, grow in your knowledge of the Word, learn your God-given identity and how to walk powerfully in it, learn how to discern, & learn how to serve others. The list is practically ENDLESS. In other words, #levelup in your faith walk boo!
  2. Get to know yourself. This starts with learning your God-given identity. Beyond that, many people think they know who they are until they are forced to spend time alone. What do you like? What triggers you? What brings you joy? What are your passions? What ‘s your favorite food? How do you like to dress? What music lights you up? What’s your idea of a “perfect day?” Just take time to learn YOU.
  3. Heal. TAKE YOUR TIME. What’s the rush? Rushed healing always leads to a new and worse injury. I know you don’t want to think about the past, but you need to go there at least once to observe what happened, the root of why it happened, and how you can course correct and choose a new direction so you don’t repeat the same things again. Don’t let your pain go in vain. Let your pain have a purpose, and guess what?? YOU get to define that! What did you learn from that experience? It doesn’t have to hurt you anymore.
  4. Uncover your purpose. You have so much time to learn and develop your unique giftings, talents, and abilities during this time. You don’t owe anyone time, but your Heavenly Father. He has a purpose for you outside of your marriage. Many times, you walking in your purpose will be the thing that unites you and your spouse that hasn’t arrived yet. This is the time for you to devote yourself more fully to God’s work. In 1 Corinthians 7:32-34 Paul says, “An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord’s affairs—how he can please the Lord. But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world—how he can please his wife—and his interests are divided” 
  5. Get yo’ money right! What better time to learn financial literacy than when you are the only one managing your finances? Learn about investments, budgeting, tithing, and overall how to be a good steward over your money. You don’t want to enter into a marriage in debt or begin to use TWO incomes recklessly.
  6. Dream! What did that little kid in you want to do before your “God imaginations” were shattered by the world? Take time and just dream up your hearts desires and then pray into them. How fun is it to let your imagination run wild?
  7. Serve. Serving is a HUGE component of marriage, so why not start practicing now? Serve your family, friends, and home church. There are people who need you in this season. Remember once you are married, your free time will look a bit different because different seasons call for different roles. Enjoy your current portion.
  8. HAVE FUN! Create a bucket list of ALL the things you want to do and go after them! Don’t put any limits on it. What makes you come alive? What have you ALWAYS wanted to do?
  9. Keep hope alive! If you have a desire for marriage, trust that Our Heavenly Father has placed it in you and is bringing you the desires of your heart in His perfect timing!

How To Develop History With God


Many people want to have a relationship with God where they are walking, talking, and hearing Him as though He is a “physical” person on this planet. Is that too much to ask?

Absolutely NOT! Intimacy with Our Heavenly Father is a part of our blood-bought birthright!

Matthew 27:51 says, “At that moment the curtain in the sanctuary of the Temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, rocks split apart,”

Above all, the tearing of the veil at the moment of Jesus’ death dramatically symbolized that His sacrifice, the shedding of His own blood, was a SUFFICIENT atonement for your sins & mine. Ayyyyeeeee!!! #gamechanger

It signified that now the way into the Holy of Holies was open for ALL people, for all time, both Jew and Gentile. It’s essentially saying, YOU can have intimacy with Our Heavenly Father. There’s NO MORE veil.

A part of enjoying intimacy with Our Abba Father is developing “history” with Him. Think about it. The people in your life, in whom you truly enjoy intimacy with-you have history of some sort with them. It’s not necessarily “extensive history,” but it is “quality history” with them. Do you have intimacy with someone you just met at the grocery store? Probably not.

Ok, I hear you Tasha, but how do I build “history” with God?

Well, this post would be waaayy too long if I tried to word vomit the ENTIRE process right now, but I’ll certainly get ya started! If you’re still interested in me personally guiding you through the process, I’ll share an opportunity with you.


Steps To Develop History With God

  1. Acknowledge Him as your Saviour.– How you see Him is EXTREMELY important, & correlates to the degree you’ll be able to RECEIVE from Him. When you see Him as your Lord, Your loving Abba Father, King Jesus-the name ABOVE EVERY name-you’ll open yourself up to connecting with Him. Connection is a precursor for developing “history” with anyone.
  2. Read His Word.– How can you expect to develop history with a person whom you don’t even know THEIR history?? You don’t get into a relationship & try to build “new history” with someone if you don’t have some degree of understanding of their past. The Bible clearly shows us God’s history.
  3. Take risks with Him.-This is probably the LARGEST step. You can’t marinate in fear when you’re walking with God. Remember in 2 Timothy 1:7 where it says, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” You may have “moments” of being afraid, but you have to push through that and marinate in the spirit of love, power, and a sound mind that He’s given you. You have to be brave enough to take risks on what you believe He is speaking to you. You’re not always going to be 100% sure that He said it, but there are ways to qualify what you hear Him saying to the point where you ALSO need to take action on what you believe He said. Walking by faith comes with falling. Just get use to it & know that He’s PROMISED you that He’ll always be with you to pick you back up if you let Him.

I hope this gets you started on your journey of developing history with Him. I promise you it is an AMAZING, SUPERNATURAL, EXHILARATING JOURNEY! You’ll NEVER want to go back to doing life the way you use to do it once you get a taste of Him in this way.

For anyone who is serious about developing AUTHENTIC, TRUE INTIMACY with Our Heavenly Father, and I mean you are HUNGRY for this NEW, CLOSE, PERSONAL, SUPERNATURAL, LOVING, & POWERFUL relationship with Him, I invite you to join my Faith Walk It Out Mentorship which is gearing up to accept mentees for the summer session!

Just like some students need additional tutoring to understand academic concepts, sometimes adults need mentorship in a way where you can receive one on one guidance so you can develop and go to the next level of spiritual growth. There’s nothing wrong with getting help doing that. Would you tell your child there’s something wrong with them if they need afterschool tutoring? Of course not. We all learn differently, and sometimes we need additional intervention outside of the larger classroom (church.)

I invite you to schedule a call with me, so we can gauge if we’re a great fit to work together & I can share all the deets! Gon’ head and take the first step in faith! I’m so excited for you!

9 Ways To Forgive When It’s Tough


Forgiveness doesn’t have to be the other bad “F’ word.  Lol.

I know what you’re thinking: “They don’t deserve it. It’s not fair. I have a right to be petty. They hurt me really bad this time. It would be “unjust” of me to forgive them.”

I know, I know. We’ve all had similar thoughts, but let me help you out if you find yourself in your feelings today.

Steps & Keys To Forgiving Others

  1. Ask yourself do you truly love and fear (revere) the Lord? -In John 14:15 Jesus said, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” Do you TRULY love God, or do you only love Him when it’s convenient for YOU? Oh no she didn’t #comefor me!?
  2. Remember that Jesus forgave you A DEBT you could NEVER REPAY. – Do you remember the fact that Jesus sent His ONLY child to the cross for YOU to pay for ALL of your sins and trespasses-past, present, and future FOREVER!? Plus, He promised He will NEVER remember your sins again!? He forgave you when you weren’t even living for Him! Certainly, you can forgive someone their offense against you. Hebrews 8:12 “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.” I mean is God good or nawh?? He’s forgiven you for things you haven’t even done yet!
  3. Submerge yourself in scripture on forgiveness.Go read and marinate on Matthew 18:21-35. Reread it as many times as you need to until the Holy Spirit shines a light on the thoughts in your head concerning whomever you have not forgiven. Put yourself in the parable and read it over and over. 
  4. Forgiving isn’t for the other person. It’s for YOU.- Have you ever realized that unforgiveness requires a great deal of mental energy? Ain’t nobody got time for that! You constantly think about it. You retell the story repeatedly to others. You work yourself into a tizzy the more you retell the story. Ugh! Plus, you hinder your faith.  Don’t believe me? Check out Matthew 11:22-26
  5. Don’t wait until you “feel” ready to actually forgive.- Make the decision to forgive and then allow your feelings to catch up to your faith. Your flesh will steer you wrong, but your spirit won’t. Matthew 26:41 says, “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
  6. Ask Our Heavenly Father to help you forgive.-Don’t depend on your own strength to forgive. You’ll fail every time. Exodus 15:2 says, “The Lord is my strength and my defense, He has become my salvation.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 says, But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
  7. Cast your cares and worries about this person onto Our Heavenly Father. – 1 Peter 5:7 says, Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” 
  8. Trust God to handle it.– Numbers 23:19 says,God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?”
  9. Press in more than once. Forgiveness happens for some people in one shot. For others its a process. So I don’t want to hear, “Tasha, I tried, but it didn’t work.” No matter what, fight the good fight of faith to forgive them. A life of bitterness is NOT your portion!! Seek counseling & continue to meditate on scripture to release that person so you can walk BURDEN-FREE into the victorious life our Abba Father planned for you! I promise you it’s SOOOOO GOOOOD on the other side!

There are so many steps and tips I could add here, but I’d say this is a pretty good start. What do you think? Are you ready to drop those pounds of unwarranted weight off of your shoulders child of God?? Let’s do it!

Why You Shouldn’t Give Up After Only 1 Prayer

Screen Shot 2019-04-13 at 11.47.26 AM

Many times we think if we pray once and Our Heavenly Father doesn’t answer us, then it’s not His will. #notnecessarily

Sometimes we also think if we pray once, and He doesn’t answer us immediately, then we shouldn’t pray the same prayer again because we’d be bugging him. #wrongagain

Here is why you should NOT stop praying after one simple prayer.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says, “ Rejoice always, pray without ceasing,  give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

Matthew 7:7 says, “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.”


So let me break it down a little.

There are some times when I pray to my Abba Father, and He answers me immediately.

Other times, I pray to Him and He tells me to wait. Then He gives me the answer in His timing.

Then there are other times when He’s silent, but He reveals the answer to me as I calm down (when I’m no longer anxious for the answer). He responds to me as I go about doing my life as usual.

Another way He responds is in the form of miracles, which sometimes is a process instead of an immediate answer. This is the one I really want to discuss.

Clearly, He tells us in the scriptures above to make prayer our lifestyle. So, it’s not just a hit it and quit it type of deal. Do you remember when the disciples were trying to cast a demon out of a young man?? Jesus said in Matthew 17:21, “However, this kind does not come out except by prayer and fasting.”

Sometimes our miracles or even answered prayers manifest incrementally. Think about trying to chop down a tree that’s been rooted for 50 years. The tree is NOT coming down with one swing of the ax. MULTIPLE swings need to be thrown to take it down. Think of your prayers as swings of an ax. If the first swing doesn’t do it, keep praying baby, you never know if the 10th or the 35th prayer will do it.

Let me be clear, it’s not your prayer that is manifesting the answer you desire. It’s Our Heavenly Father’s POWER behind your prayer that brings forth things from the spiritual realm into the physical world.

There’s soooo much more on spiritual warfare that’s involved when we lift our prayers up to Him. That’s an entirely separate blog or video post. Whew! For now, take some time to marinate on the truths He led me to put forth in this post.

If you are still praying about a thing, don’t give up, unless He says #issano. Also, don’t beg or plead for the answer. When you speak to your Heavenly Father, it needs to be done in faith that you are praying according to His Word, you have full confidence that He loves you and hears you, and it’s His delight to see you–His child, prosper!

Cheers to a strong prayer life! Drop your thoughts in the comments below. I’d love to hear about your prayer life and join you in believing!
