Serving faith & cornbread

Wow The last time I posted a blog on WordPress was in February 2012. I’ve been through a lot since then. Life is better now. Thank God. In a nutshell, shortly after successfully launching my cornbread career in 2010, I ran into major setbacks due to a need for operating capital. I sought high and low for investors and found none. It was a disguised blessing. At the time, it felt like a living nightmare straight from hell.

Birthing a dream, on a shoestring budget, is not for the faint of heart. I started my cornbread career, based on grandma’s secret recipe, with just $10. I moved from my foreclosed home into a shelter. From there I launched the business, determined to snatch back my foreclosed home at the upcoming auction. The bid went to the person with the most money: $73,000. To this day, I still have not given up. If the house ever returns to the market, I’m not sure I would buy it. Why? I’ve got a new dream for a new house. When one door closes, another opens.

I was 100% determined to get my life back. I wasn’t prepared for the bitter struggle nor the length of time it would take to get my life back on track. Living in shelters is a nightmare beyond words. I decree and declare in the Name of Jesus, I will never again be a shelter client. I will be a 100% successful homeowner. It is so in the Name of Jesus. Power in words we speak and write.

Long story short, I survived. On June 24, 2013, I was blessed to get back online. I’ve had to restructure the business, which is 99.99% complete. I still have some back issues to resolve and am making great progress. My success story will definitely have a chapter dedicated to the details of my setbacks, the prayers, the acts of faith, the actions taken to make my dream a reality. A winner, never, ever quits.

2011 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,300 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 55 trips to carry that many people.

First and foremost, an apology to the customers who were caught up in the setback that shut down both me and my “budding” business for months! A positive, timely resolution is forthcoming.

Guard your faith…

If you still fight the enemy over your things, you may become distracted and fail to guard what he really is trying to destroy in your life – your faith, your hope and your love. For if your faith fails, you won’t have anything to bring about a conversion in your life.

Wise Life Lesson

Praise Power

Praise breaks chains and opens doors; its the strategy for victory. Praise in the time of crisis. When Israel was outnumbered by the enemy, God told them to put a choir in front of the army and march into battle. And it worked! “When they began…to praise, the Lord set ambushes against the enemy.” (2 Chronicles 20:22 NKJV). Don’t wait until the battle is over to shout; go to war with the praise of God on your lips and watch Him turn your situation around.
