We all have opportunities to make people look bad. There are rumors, things we don’t know for sure are true, but it’s tempting to repeat them anyway. Not that we’re a bad person, we’re just telling WHAT WE HEARD. It’s easy to justify cause we’re just passing on what we’ve heard. Or maybe we do […]
But when we go around stressed out, worried, thinking it’s never going to change, that’s stopping the sun. It’s causing more clouds to roll in, more defeat, more mediocrity.

The Lord says, “I am the vine, you are the branches. If you ABIDE in me, you will bear much fruit, for APART from me you can do nothing”. Imagine how important these words are. “THIS IS HOW you’re going to be successful. THIS IS HOW you’re going to overcome challenges. THIS IS HOW you’ll […]
KRISHNA is about to reverse some things in your life, things that look like they’ll never change, “You’ll never own your own business, never get into management, never write that book, never start that ministry”. No, get ready for a reversal. Things are going to SUDDENLY shift in your favor, Narada is going to show […]

Faith in Reverse Says. “I’ll never get the breaks.” That’s a statement of faith. Faith goes to work & makes it happen. Why not take the same energy and flip it. “My life is in your hands, Lord. You are guiding & directing my steps. I’m not expecting defeat, failure. I’m expecting victory, to go […]

Maybe you need to be more disciplined in choosing your friends, in choosing your thought life (less negative). Maybe you need to be more disciplined in choosing your words, in choosing how you spend your money, in how you spend your time. Any areas where we are not disciplined, we will not grow. Don’t let any […]
Without admitting that we can’t do it ourselves, we can’t make great decisions, because we don’t have the capacity, the intellect, the vision, like Krishna does. Krishna is the Alpha and Omega. He created everything. He’s past, present, and future. He’s within the heart of every living being. He’s within the atom. Until we admit […]
Like with Arjuna, Krishna is going to put promises in your heart that don’t make sense. There’s no way you can defeats those enemies, no way you can turn the situation around, no way you can get out of debt. How can your miracle happen? It’s not going to be in your own strength, your […]
