Dear Daughter of Day
I hear the Lord say,
“Worship will take you across the tightropes of life. Where you feel restricted, I will allow you to move gracefully to the other side of difficulties. A dance before me and praise in the face of the problem will release you into new territory. You will not fall because I will uphold you as you move creatively into the crossover of life. I have called you to the other side of lack, doubt, fear, and apprehension. There is a new fluidity that will allow the tight places to become the enlarged territory you have desired. You will get around the closed gates and enter the wide doors. Crossover into enlargement.”
You enlarge my steps under me,
And my feet have not slipped.-2 Samuel 22:37
Hello, Daughter of Day!
There are so many wonderful things going on at DOD! We have started a podcast, “Hello, Daughter of Day: Encouragement for God’s Daughters.” (check our podcast link) on all major platforms such as Itunes, Spotify, and Anchor. New episodes drop on Tuesdays. We’ve included two new Prayer Journals to our online bookstore on this site, and are working on an online course. Don’t forget about our book,”Come Out From Discouragement, Embracing Your Identity As God’s Daughter of Day.”
We are blessed for the growth and thankful that you are a subscriber. Spread the word to your sisters and friends who may want to get involved or sign up for Encouragement and Emotional Intelligence Coaching. Yes! We have put all of the areas that we work with under the umbrella of Encouragement! It is our lifeline and foundation to move our clients forward. We have launched a Facebook Group, Words of Encouragement for Women, and our FaceBook page is Michelle Brown Life Coach.
With all of this said and shared, our first love is this blog! This is where it all started and somewhere along the journey, the diligence drifted and we may have lost contact with YOU! We never want to lose this connection and pray that you will not only look out and read our weekly blogs that are making a comeback! New blogs will be up each Wednesday and will be fresh thoughts to inspire. We still share with a prophetic edge because in these times it is important to hear from God.
What is your first love? What have you drifted away from as growth and change have taken place in your life? Maybe you put down a hobby with all of the new anxieties and adjustments that we are working through in this season of new normals. If you are anxious, we cast those aside, but ask you to consider getting more creative at this time that appears uncertain to us, but of course not to God. It’s time to return and pick up the passion that drew you in to what you are doing now! What love have you abandoned and want to pick back up? Pick up where you left off and push it forward!
Prayerfully, you have not strayed from your first, first love which is the Lord. He is calling us all back to a deeper place of intimacy with Him. Have you accepted this invitation? Are you open to the knocking on your heart? He is waiting to hear from you in an appointment of discovery where you will hear all of the wonderful plans He has for you. Our Be Still Guided Journal will help you stay consistent with 5 steps to building your fellowship with the Father!
Reach out to us and let us know what you are returning to and how we can pray for you!
We’re back to blogging!!
July 2020 is a month that marks that halfway point of the year. A reminder of Romans 13:11, And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awaken out of sleep; for now is our salvation nearer than when we first believed. The end of 6 months of the year represents the awakening of man. God is awakening His people in a greater way to the generosity we need to have when it comes to Christ. He is calling us to share the power and necessity of Christ to those who have not yet surrendered their lives. This is the time where you must align with the movement of Christ as you see many new movements arise in the earth. He will show you how to connect and conquer good ground.
Good will lie right beside bad, as sheep are still mingling with wolves. The wheat and the tares are positioned very closely as the negative disguises itself as positive. Your eyes must be open to see how close polar opposites are appearing. Some will try to convince you that good is bad, but you must hold fast that God is working all things out for good even in the midst of chaos and confusion. You must stay rooted and grounded in the Word of God and begin to read it and know it for yourselves. This is the time where the jewel and the lie (July) run side by side. Search for the jewels of the Word and the treasures of the kingdom. Continue to make Matthew 6:33 your meditation and life assignment.
This is also the month where you will take new territory through unlikely means and wealth will begin to emerge through your redefining. New streams are flowing and God is going to show you the pieces that have been missing to complete certain projects. You must look up! There are blessings on the top shelf that have been out of your reach, but God is bringing them down to you. He is placing them in your hands as you commit your life to prayer. This is the month to remain diligent and consistent in your assigned pursuits.
This is the month of Jubilee! This is the month of beginnings. In the second half of the year you are coming out of any enslavement that has held you in bondage. Debt is being cancelled and you will owe no man anything but love! Keep devising the plan with God, and working the plan under His direction!
Snow Fall, Heart Call
It’s May and I’ve seen that it is snowing in some areas. I went to this scripture, Proverbs 26:1, “Like snow in summer or rain in harvest, so honor is not fitting for a fool.” God is calling us out of our foolish way of living without Him as the priority in our lives. Just as the snow seems out of place in the summer, so are you out of place when you are not in Him. The Bible says it is in Him that we live and move and have our being.
God is calling us to reason, to our right understanding. God says in Isaiah 1:18, “Come let us reason together, though your sins are as scarlet I will make them white as snow.” God is ready for us to align with Him so He can escort us into the right season. You cannot produce when you are not in season.
It’s your season to accept Christ and His salvation if you have not already. If you know someone who has not accepted Christ let them know it’s like snow In May, they are out of place. The season has passed to drag your feet about coming to the Lord. Your place is with God in Christ.
Word of Encouragement for May: Many of God’s daughters have been asking if it is okay for them to step out in certain areas of ministry and purpose. They have wondered about their authority in pursuing destiny in this new season that we are approaching. You have come to the Lord with humility and questioned, May I, Lord? May I stand in my purpose with confidence and courageousness? The word for May is simple, “Yes, Daughter, You May!” You have wondered if you can approach God with a new boldness in your time of need, not only for your necessities but for your desires, and the answer is “Yes, Daughter, You May.” As the saying goes, April showers bring May flowers. This is the time to bloom in His presence and in the courts of the Lord. It is here that you have the authority to veto defeat. Bloom, Daughter of Day, Bloom.
As a Daughter of Day, you will face the need to initiate critical conversations. You must use good judgment and process the deciding factors as to whether or not it is necessary and timely. I have fallen to prey to starting a vital conversation at the wrong time. There are five tips I would like to share with you about how to initiate difficult conversations. These should be your goals to create a safe and productive environment.
Many times we would rather avoid conflict. Sometimes, we rush to have conversations that may resolve with prayer or in time. However, there are times when we need to clear the air to create a better future with our counterparts, family, co-workers, friends, and even our spouse or significant other.
Conversations are essential to have, and sometimes they need to be thought through to promote a positive outcome. Remember that what you think, maybe a positive result may be different. Sometimes the waters have to be stirred to bring you back to smooth sailing.
G-The first goal is to find the Gains and the Good in the person you are addressing and the opportunity for peace. What are the benefits of initiating or engaging in dialogue? How will the discussion impact the relationship or your existence in the same circle? It is also appropriate to determine what good will come out of the conversation that will yield growth? Make sure you gather yourself before you initiate the conversation so that you don’t go into the conversation with anger. Set a goal to communicate in a positive way that will be fruitful for the relationship.
O-What Objections or Obstacles will you have to overcome to have during the conversation? Will the other person be open to talking to you about the issue? Be aware of the possible offense they may take if you are approaching them in a blaming tone. Think through what you want to say, and if you see where it may be offensive, omit, or refer with more “I’s” instead of “You’s.”
A-Make sure to confirm if you are making any Assumptions before you approach the discussion. Try not to make Accusatory Statements but instead express how you feel and what your perception is in regards to the conflict. Do not assume their intentions but express your reception of the actions in question.
L– Determine what Losses could you endure from bringing up the issue? First, make sure you are not violating the confidence of someone else in sharing any information. Is this hearsay information? Will this conversation cause damage to the relationship or the established trust? Are you okay with an unfavorable outcome if they cannot receive your heart? Are you willing to listen to them just as much as you talk?
Most importantly, move in Love. If the spirit of love is your foundation, it will set the stage for an amicable discussion. It is ideal to forgive the person before you even have the discussion. That ensures that your emotions remain in check.
S-The ultimate goal is to find a Solution. Come to the table to find resolve and peace. If you are solution-oriented as opposed to problem-focused, it will make a significant difference in your ability to keep the main issue the focus.
When engaging in a problematic conversation, look for the Good and Gains. Prepare for objections and obstacles while avoiding the spirit of offense. Avoid making assumptions and accusations while focusing on the solutions!
Hello, Daughter of Day!
I would like to share with you what I hear in my heart for September 2019. After the Holy Spirit highlighted a few things to me, I listened to the words Super Shift. S.U.P.E.R. Shift.
Charles Dickens was prophetic when he said, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair….” As I look around right now, I sense that God is going to manifest Romans 8:28 before our very eyes. As the cloud recently set over the Bahamas and Hurricane Dorian caused havoc, I believe the GLORY CLOUD of the Lord will stay over top of this island and God’s grace will manifest as the strength of the people comes into full view. Every storm that has hovered over your life will produce God’s glory and you will be flooded with His revelation that the storm came to pass and to release God’s strength in you.
The Shift that will take place this month will be profound. The Super in the shift is what will push you forward. It will be a Sensitive, Uncovering, of Prophetic Purpose, Exemplifying, Retroactive Reassurance. As you listen to the still small voice of the Holy Spirit, He is going to uncover your purpose for now and the future. He will restore and take you back to where you missed some of the markers. This restoration will be as if you never missed a beat! You will know without a doubt that God sustained and protected you for such a time as this!
You are God’s Superwoman! Greater is He that is within you than he that is in the world. Prayer is your superpower. Pray to hear and ask to see. Watch God bring the shift in September!
Word of Wisdom: As you Alternate the sense of control over to God, you will see the shift takes place that will unground you and cause you to go up higher!
