Pressing Towards Destiny

A woman of God said so profoundly, and I quote, “You are not ready for destiny until you can sit at the table with your friend and Judas and treat them both the same! Don’t move Judas’s seat!” Thank you Dr. Yvonne Capehart!

Have you ever asked the Lord WHY? My God from Zion! In this season of ministry I have asked Him Lord WHY? I see your hand, yet the more sacrifice, the more attacks. Has your character, integrity, and morals ever been challenged? Have you ever been falsely accused? Yet, you have to stand firm and still smile in the faces of your enemies. If you haven’t it’s a part of the process. You leave your familiar place, your kindred, and acquaintances and journey to a foreign land just as the Lord has led many to do. You may often sit Sunday, and Wednesday and wonder is this truly a part of my destiny. Have you felt that your spirit man crying out on the inside, yet you can’t shed tears because you’re constantly being critiqued, watched, and criticized. Lord, why can’t I move Judas’s seat? You can;t move Judas’s seat Trudy because your destiny is tied to how you handle the betrayal of the Judas’s in your walk with me! I have had so-called Sisters in Christ betray me! I had them smile in my face yet, try strive all they could to take my place….. But God!!! I knew when they were revealed that meant that my season is getting closer! I stood firm, and didn’t allow the enemy to make me move from my place of authority! The Lord allowed me to walk through it! Oh yes, I cried, prayed, fasted, even thought about going thug gangster on them, getting my pose, yes i said it! Yet the Holy Ghost that resides on the inside says, “vengeance is mine saith the Lord, I will repay!”Wordpress pic

He’s allowed me to see his repayment.

Have you heard of the School of Spiritual Hard Knocks? Let me tell you about it. This school doesn’t require an orientation session, it just requires you accepting the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal savior! That is the first semester! Don’t you get filled with the Holy Ghost, that’s when you have something on the inside that the enemy recognizes and will challenge your character, he’s not worried about your gift because those come without repentance! Your leading praise and worship, singing on the choir, and ushering in the board aren’t threats to the devil! You may even acknowledge the call to preach! Well, you’re walking a little bit heavier now! Fasting and praying, and dwelling in the secret place of the most High God and see what begins to happen. I pray for others more than I pray for myself! Here come some more trials and tribulations.  Lord, I am striving to live Holy, and I know I’m living right. Well, you’re ready your another exam by this point! Whew, what a journey this has been!!! My how time flies when you’re pressing towards destiny!!!

Don’t you dare quit! Don’t you dare give up! Don’t you dare walk away! I’m not let’s keep “Pressing Towards Destiny”

He Blessed Me With Two…

HE Blessed Me With Two…
As I sit reflecting on tomorrow …Father’s Day. I honor my late fathers.

I can see their faces as though it was just the other day. Both had smiles that would light up any dark pathway. Both tall in stature, both always filled a room with laughter. Though I see them on this earth no more, I shall one day after the first trumpet sounds see them in the rapture.

HE Blessed Me With Two… As our Nation celebrates another Father’s Day tomorrow, Sunday, June 19, 2016. I will remember my two father’s the late Ennis Hansberry, Jr., the man who gave me life, and who loved me enough to transfer his parenthood his brother in law the late Deacon Samuel Stanback, the man who took me as his daughter from three months old, reared, imparted wisdom, most of all the importance of accepting the Lord as my savior he was with me until I was twelve, it was the summer summer of 1982 the Lord called him from labor to reward.

Thank you Lord, Yessss HE Blessed Me With Two…

I am HIS Servant,

What HE Plans…

What HE Plans…

As I was preparing for work this morning I began to reflect back to my junior year of high school. I was so excited about visiting Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I had decided to attend there upon graduation. However, due to a family tragedy, MY plan had to change. I didn’t think twice when my mother sat down and explained what we were facing as a family. So, I didn’t leave the summer of 1988 as I anticipated. I attended the local community college and worked to assist my family- they needed me.

If I had gone to ORU the summer of 1988, it is very likely that I wouldn’t be married to my loving and supportive husband of 26 years, nor would I be the mother of two handsome young men,nor the step grandmother of two little guys. I also would not have been be the servant and leading lady of the congregation that we served for 19 years, nor the present congregation for almost 3 years.

So, I reflect and know that it was HIS Plan… For Jeremiah 29:11 has come to have great revelation and meaning to me as I have matured and come through the “tight places” in my walk with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

As you read this, know that God has a plan for your life, HIS plans are not of evil, they are to prosper YOU and to give YOU an expected end. Your times and seasons are in HIS HANDS.

As I close for now, my mother would often say these words to me “Trudy, Look up and Live.”

I AM HIS SERVANT,

“The Call”

One of the first hymns I learned as an adult was “A Charge to Keep I Have”. A powerful, yet personal declaration.

Reading Ephesians 4:1-16, “A Charge to Keep I Have” parallels this scripture.

As we answer “The Call” that the Lord has purposed for us, is one that no one can fulfill except the individual who He handpicks to complete it.

Ephesians 4:1-16, the Apostle Paul informs that we are to walk worthy of our calling. As you walk in your call and are faced with opposition, testing, trials, and tribulations, can HE depend on you? In spite of being mishandled, misjudged, often sitting in the presence of enemies, wolves in sheep clothing. If you have answered, “The Call”, truly the words of the hymn speak and resound.

A Charge To Keep I Have lyrics
A charge to keep I have,
A God to glorify,
A never dying soul to save,
And fit it for the sky.

To serve the present age,
My calling to fulfill:
O may it all my powers engage
To do my Master’s will!

Arm me with jealous care,
As in Thy sight to live;
And O Thy servant, Lord, prepare
A strict account to give!

Help me to watch and pray,
And on Thyself rely,
Assured if I my Lord betray,
I shall forever die.

“I THEREFORE, the prisoner for the Lord, appeal to and beg you to walk (lead a life) worthy of the [divine] calling to which you have been called [with behavior that is a credit to the summons to God’s service, Living as becomes you] with complete lowliness of mind (humility) and meekness (unselfishness, gentleness, mildness), with patience, bearing with one another and making allowances because you love one another. Be eager and strive earnestly to guard and keep the harmony and oneness of [and produced by] the Spirit in the binding power of peace. [There is] one body and one Spirit–just as there is also one hope [that belongs] to the calling you received– [There is] one Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of [us] all, Who is above all [Sovereign over all], pervading all and [living] in [us] all. Yet grace (God’s unmerited favor) was given to each of us individually [not indiscriminately, but in different ways] in proportion to the measure of Christ’s [rich and bounteous] gift. Therefore it is said, When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive [He led a train of vanquished foes] and He bestowed gifts on men. [Ps. 68:18.] [But He ascended?] Now what can this, He ascended, mean but that He had previously descended from [the heights of] heaven into [the depths], the lower parts of the earth? He Who descended is the [very] same as He Who also has ascended high above all the heavens, that He [His presence] might fill all things (the whole universe, from the lowest to the highest). And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers. His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ’s body (the church), [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ’s own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him.

Rather, let our lives lovingly express truth [in all things, speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly]. Enfolded in love, let us grow up in every way and in all things into Him Who is the Head, [even] Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). For because of Him the whole body (the church, in all its various parts), closely joined and firmly knit together by the joints and ligaments with which it is supplied, when each part [with power adapted to its need] is working properly [in all its functions], grows to full maturity, building itself up in love.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭4:1-13, 15-16‬ ‭AMP
‭‭I am His Servant,
