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!”
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…
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…

Source: 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,
Trudy Hansberry Anderson
