Happy Sunday Everyone! Today begins a week of new adventures and new opportunities for SUGA. I am excited to officially launch my Coaching and Consulting firm SUGA Wellness Boutique, LLC.
For those of you that have followed my blog through the years, you’re familiar with the inspirational posts that I often share. I call them my form of worship. I accept that God has given me the gift of writing to help encourage and inspire others to success. Not only do I seek to encourage and inspire others, but I also help them do the work that is necessary in their personal and professional lives to see real results.
As many of you know, SUGA is an acronym which means: Simply Understand God is Able. I firmly believe that successful lives are created by keeping God first and foremost in every area of our lives. I invite you to check out my new blog at http://www.sugawellnessboutique.com. While you’re there take a look at the variety of services that SUGA can provide. At SUGA my intention is to help you achieve success through peaceful empowerment!
In order to achieve a successful launch I need your help with 3 things.

I’m so excited to begin this next phase of my life and I greatly appreciate your support!

Peace and Wellness,
This year, I registered for the Komen Race for the Cure because I want to make an impact in the fight against breast cancer. I was diagnosed in April of this year and because of prayer, early detection, top notch treatment and a fabulous medical team, I am a Survivor!
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today in support of my fundraising efforts. Any amount is appreciated and no amount is too small.
You can donate online with your credit card by copying and pasting the link below into your web browser.
Your support helps us get one step closer to a world without breast cancer. 75 percent of the money raised through the Race stays in the community to fund local breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs. The remaining 25 percent supports groundbreaking breast cancer research.
Together, we are fueling the best science, boldest community and biggest impact in the fight against breast cancer. And we will not stop until this disease is gone forever. That’s our promise. Will you please join me in this fight by making a donation today?
John 15:13 NKJV No longer do I call you servants for a servant does not know what his Master is doing; but I have called you friends for all things that I heard from my Father I have made known to you.
Thank you for calling me friend. I am so grateful that you have chosen to share your life with me. It is because of your belief in me that I can walk in confidence knowing that you trust me with the will of your Father and that you have given me specific purpose into your plans for my life. I thank you that you have left nothing to chance but you have hand-crafted every situation that I will encounter. I thank you that all things concerning me are deliberate an intentional. I feel confident knowing that those things are working for good in my life. Even in trying times I trust you and as your word says, weapons will be formed but they will not prosper in my life. I am grateful that you love me enough not to leave me in my current state and that I am getting stronger and wiser in you with each passing day. Lord you have been so good to me and I love you. Thank you for giving me the gift of friendship and teaching me how to be a true friend.
With humility, open-mindedness and willingness, I will collaborate with you on this day.
In Jesus name.
I Corinthians 14:33 “For God is not the author of Confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.”
There’s power in your purpose.
What could be better than being in tune with God’s thoughts about your life and actually doing the work that he has called you to perform.
There’s peace in your purpose.
Imagine having clear vision, intentional actions and a desire to please God! What could be more peaceful?
There’s position in your purpose
Now imagine a purpose unfulfilled. Think about the countless number of people who would be unable to fulfill their purpose simply because you chose not to fulfill yours.
That’s how it is. There’s community and fellowship in each purpose. Your next door neighbor could be dependent upon you or it could be someone on the other side of the world. Whatever the case may be, our purposes are connected.
Eliminate the confusion by serving your purpose. God would never give you an assignment that he hasn’t gifted you to fulfill. God wouldn’t confuse you like that. You are well equipped to handle any assignment that has been sent your way.
You have a purpose to fulfill and your purpose is connected to others.
Do you work and serve your purpose.
Successful Moments thru Peaceful Empowerment,
Colossians 2:6-7 NKJ “As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.”
This event did not catch you by surprise. You were made for this! Yes you oh child of God, you can handle it. I know for sure that you can handle it because as the scripture says, you were rooted built up and then established in the faith! You’ve been taught how to survive extraordinary circumstances so go ahead and give God praise!
Are you asking yourself, what is the “this” that I was made for? If so, let’s define “this” as anything that sets itself up in your path to break your focus, hinder your purpose or delay your blessing.
Your prayers and frustrations have given you access to God’s delivering power in a whole new realm. Your prayers have rooted you and your cries to God have built you up for this specific event at this particular moment. It is time to walk in confidence being assured that your “this” will not take you out and it will work in your favor.
Circumstances come to test our faith but Jesus came to root us, build us and establish us in the faith.
I dare you to go ahead and thank God for the lesson and the blessing that your “this” sent your way!

Genesis 16: 13-14 NKJV Then she called the name of the Lord who spoke to her. You-Are-the-God-Who-Sees ; for she said, “Have I also here seen Him who sees me?
It’s an absolutely amazing feeling to see God and to be seen by God. If we allow ourselves to slow down from our hectic schedules and seek God, we will find him in everything. The sunrise and sunset, a child’s laugh or the simple beauty of nature, God can be seen in everything that is living and active.
How about those times in our lives when we realize that Good sees us too? For instance have you ever prayed a specific and deliberate prayer and your answer unfolds in the most unique way that leaves you saying, “only God could have done that.” What about when you ask the Lord to make his presence known to you and you feel a gentle rush of wind on your cheek or you smell a sweet aroma fill your room. How about when you’re up praying and crying about a situation and an instant calm comes over you and you start to rejoice. All of these things are proof that God sees you!
My prayer for you is that you will experience God in an entirely new capacity this week. I pray that he shows up for you and makes his presence known in the most unique way. I pray that you are blessed by seeing God in all things and knowing without a shadow of a doubt that he sees you too! Now do me a favor and pray the same for me!
May you walk in peace knowing that God has his eyes on you!
Peace and Wellness my friend,
1 Peter 1:6-8 NIV… 6 In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 7 These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
Had it not been for the Lord on my side…where oh where would I be!
I heard those marvelous words today…You are Cancer Free!”
For once in my life I am at a loss for words when it comes to the goodness of my God!
I will let the WORD speak for itself today while I sit back and bask in HIS goodness!
Peace and Wellness,
