Hello To all of our WIFI Ministry Subscribers, Visitors, Family and Friend’s… Happy Tuesday to each of you! I pray that each of you reading this post, have a sensational week and remember that we must not quit if we want to gain access to our tomorrow.. So don’t give up!!! Of note, I have enclosed day number 37 of Pecking Orders directly from Bishop T.D. Jakes Ministries... Read them, apply them, and keep pecking!!!
Before you give up, affirm that the sky is the limit! You’ve been POSITIONED and EXPOSED. You’ve taken COURAGE and gathered KNOWLEDGE. You’ve set your goals high, knowing you could not achieve them on your own. Even if this is your second or umpteenth attempt, DON’T GIVE UP! You’re right on track. You were not created to play it safe. Take the risk and continue asking God, “Father, what’s next?”
Blessings to each of you on this beautiful day where we stop and salute all the wonderful men and women that have served our country. Happy Veteran’s Day! I have enclosed day number 36 of Pecking Orders Directly from Bishop T.D. Jakes...
Much to all of you, and I hope you enjoy your day!
DO NOT TURN BACK! You are doing so well! Before you give in to your anxieties, respect what is at stake! This whole idea of PECKING may seem scary. After all, you’re operating outside your comfort zone the entire time. But, the only way to avoid these nerve-racking feelings is to simply play it safe by sticking to what is easy and familiar. Expect to be uncomfortable because the stakes of your future are high! KEEP PECKING!!!
Forgiving someone takes a considerable amount of COURAGE because it requires you to be a bigger person and let things go…something most of us don’t want to do. Grudges spread and invade our healthy emotions. Forgiveness conquers bitterness! Moving toward your goals will require you to be COURAGEOUS enough to release the bitterness you’ve held for so long. Remember to forgive as you want to be forgiven!
At Woman Thou Art Loosed, I preached a message titled “The Pecking Order”. If you missed it, get your hands on a copy or download the MP3 from our site. During the conference God also moved me to share one of my breakthrough scriptures — Luke 2:52 “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.”For the next 52 Days, beginning tomorrow, we’re going to meet in the Spirit via social media. I’m going to be giving you “Pecking Orders” to help unlock FAVOR and POTENTIAL in your life and coach you into your destiny. Some of these orders will be spiritual…others will be natural, concerning issues like credit, debt, and leadership.
I’m challenging you to have 52 days of undistracted devotion with God. Get up early and give God the first fruits of your day. Have private devotion time. Meditate over Luke 2:52 and pray “Lord, Make me increase in wisdom and stature and favor…” Then, read your pecking orders for the day and believe God for a shift in your life. I want to pray for you as we embark on this journey!
Greetings to you all in the mighty name of Jesus… Happy Monday to everyone… Let’s keep moving right along in “LOVE” and P.E.C.K. our way to where God wants us to be. I have enclosed day number 22 of our Peckings orders directly from our Bishop T.D. Jakes.. Please read and put the order into action…
Much Love to you all, knowing that my God is “LOVE!”
The favor that God has placed on your life will cause you to be liked by people you can’t even imagine. They will be intelligent, influential and have wisdom to share with you on your journey. This requires that you EXPOSE yourself to more than just your familiar surroundings. These new “things” and new people God is sending your way may operate on a higher level than what you are accustomed to. Get comfortable trying new things and going new places. You’ll be glad you did! Keep pecking…
Philippians 3:13-14 (NIV) “Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
Happy Thursday to our WIFI Subscribers, Visitors, Family and Friend’s… Yes, we are forgetting those things that are behind us and we pressing into our future… We are pecking away!!!!
I have enclosed day number 18 of Pecking order directly from Bishop T.D. Jakes
As God POSITIONS you for the future, you will begin noticing the importance of breaking old cycles. Breaking the cycle of repeated mistakes requires making a decision to move on with your life, but it won’t happen overnight and neither will it be easy. Find a way to move out of the past, move ahead, free from all encumbrances that threaten to leave you attached to your yesterday. Do not let the dead weight of old cycles impede your progress! PECK….
BEFORE you can see the beauty of the surroundings in which God has POSITIONED you, you must remove the clutter! God is a God of order! “God is not the author of confusion, but of peace” (1 Cor. 14:33). Though confusion does not stop God from working, it does stop YOU! The removal of unneeded items can reveal the beauty, functionality and lovely features of God’s creation, your possessions, and even your spirit. It’s time to clean house…physically, spiritually and mentally!
WTAL 2012 Recap
1 Cor. 14:33 ““For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.”
Luke 2:52 (KJV) “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.”
Clutter: “A confused or disordered state or collection; a jumble: sorted through the clutter in the attic.
A lot of times we keep gadgets, tools, toys, art supplies, et cetera around because they seem useful. However, it’s important to consider how often you actually use each item when deciding whether it’s worth keeping or should be given away. If you haven’t touched it in three to six months (or more), despite your best intentions, it is a good candidate for decluttering.
2. If not, is it something I love?
Of course, there are obviously exceptions to this rule (including seasonal items that you usually regularly in season). One exception I would always encourage you to make is for items you love. Keeping a painting from your grandmother that you love even if it doesn’t have a place in your current home is much different than keeping a snowcone maker that you have been meaning to use for two summers but never seem to have the motivation to actually pull out.
3. Am I keeping this out of obligation or expectation?
Chances are there is at least one thing in your home that you’re keeping not because it’s useful or you love it but because it was a gift from someone and you feel obligated to keep it. While I completely understand the desire not to hurt someone’s feelings, I think it is also important to remember that this is your home and if it is affecting your life, it’s okay to declutter gifts as well as the things that you’ve bought for yourself.
4. Am I holding onto this because I think I should love it?
Maybe you have a piece of artwork or a trendy outfit you picked up because they were popular and you felt like you should love them, even though you really don’t. Maybe your craft area is stocked with supplies for a hobby that no longer interests you. In all of these cases, it’s important to consider how you really feel and make your decisions based on those feelings rather than the ones you think you should have!
5. Am I saving this just in case?
One of the most common causes of clutter is a fear of needing something that you’ve given or thrown away. The reality is that if you commit to simplifying and decluttering, chances are that this will happen at some point. But for those of us who take the plunge to get rid of the unnecessary, the benefit of a clutter-free home is almost always worth the tiny bit of regret in these situations.
6. Do I have multiples of the same thing?
How many spoons or spatulas do you really need in your kitchen? Obviously your answer will depend on the type of cook you are, but ask yourself this question whenever you have multiples of any item. There’s a difference between being prepared and more efficient and just creating clutter!
7. Could something else I own do the same job?
I think this is a fun question! As you’re decluttering, look at any specialized tools or items you have and ask yourself if you could do the same job with another item, thereby cutting down on the number of different things you keep. To use another kitchen example, I decided to simplify our entertaining by giving away a bunch of our serving bowls once I bought a set of beautiful stainless steel mixing bowls from Ikea. I use these every day for cooking, but they also make great bowls for chips, dip, ice, et cetera.
8. Am I holding onto a broken item to fix one day?
This is another classic cause of clutter. Perhaps you have a piece of broken furniture or a broken electronic that you’re just sure you will have the time and desire to fix at some point. But ask yourself how long it’s been sitting in storage waiting for that day to come and whether you’re really ever going to get to it as you make the tough decisions about what to keep and what to get rid of.
9. Is this item worth the time I spend cleaning/storing it?
It’s important to remember that both your time and the space in your home have value. Think about how much time you spend cleaning knickknacks that you don’t really love. Or how about the time you spend sorting through the things in storage time and again to either find something you do need or want or to try to declutter once more. Would your life have less stress and busyness without those items?
10. Could I use this space for something else?
Think of the possibilities of what you could do with a closet or storage area in your home if you weren’t holding onto everything that currently fills it. What about a shelf full of knickknacks or books that don’t really interest anyone in your home? Your space has value too, and it’s important to look at the cost of everything you keep in terms of the space it occupies as well.
Which of these questions is the most challenging for you? Are there items in your home that you need to give yourself permission to give or throw away?
James 1:19-20 (NIV): Listening and Doing:“My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.”
Luke 6:31 (ESV): “And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.”
Happy Friday to each of you.. Yes indeed, we have made it to day number 12 following these awesome pecking orders by Bishop T.D. Jakes.. Let’s remain happy and cease from all anger… Please read the enclose order on anger… Much love to you all!!!

WTAL – 52 Days of Pecking Orders – Day 12
Anger is rarely the first emotion. Fear usually strikes first, preying on what we don’t know. Therefore, the solution requires KNOWLEDGE! As you continue forward, decide to work for a solution instead of being angry. You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control how you respond to situations and issues. “Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires” (James 1:20 NIV). You have a choice to make. You can stand with angry fists raised, or you can assume responsibility for your response and refuse to be a victim of your own anger.
The Impatient Turtle (Janette Oke’s Animal Friends)
“In this book: “Pogo wants to live life to the fullest, however, he thinks that being a turtle holds him back from enjoying all the fun and exciting things that others are able to do. His anger is turned to joy when he finds out being a turtle has its advantages, and it’s pretty special, too!” A must read if you struggle with anger.. This book comes on all levels….
