The enemy's been stealing from me and I've had enough. So, shortly after midnight Friday morning I prayed for help. Well, to be honest, I yelled at God for allowing me to still be under a financial curse as an extravagant giver, and then asked for help. I know most of y'all are too holy to admit you yell at El-ohim, but I do (no, not bragging about it, just being honest about my brattiness). And the cray thing is that when I get so frustrated that I'm fussing at Him ... He shows up to do something. Am I telling you to yell? No. You live out your relationship with The Godhead and I'll live out mine. In our relationship, there's yelling ... on my end. 😬
Friday afternoon I had a business call scheduled to see about purchasing a service that would help me help my clients. Before the call, I was mulling over who I could pray with that had time first of all, and authority secondly, to address this constant demonic theft. I wondered aloud if we'd have time to pray during the business call, but I knew we wouldn't because I had another appointment right after.
But, God works things together that fit His divine timing and plans for me, and when we got on the phone for the sales pitch, the seller said we'd just pray instead. How 'bout that?! The Lord created an open window for deliverance work on facing off the enemy because I'd asked and because He was in agreement. Awesome.
We prayed, warred, thanked and hung up and went about the rest of the day uplifted. Well, Friday night, without my knowing, the enemy stole from me right in front of my eyes and I didn't see it. I go in stealth sometimes to do work for The Lord so I know invisibility works for and against us, but this time the enemy did it to me. I got notified Saturday morning. So, they either retaliated against me for our warfare that expelled them and crushed their plans of attack OR our prayer didn't work and they decided to steal to prove they continue to have the right to do so. Time will tell - it takes more than one occurrence to be anything significant.
I do have a praise report, though. I needed to purchase some event tickets for this week and was waiting for my credit card payment to post so I could. It was taking forever and I was praying that the tickets would remain available, at the seats I wanted to give (as requested by the receiver) and for discounts. Well, God favored me in this area because while I had to wait for the payment to post better seats at a lower price became available and I had time to find, not one, but two discount codes to use on the purchase, and I got bonus airline miles to boot! Again, this could be the beginning of freedom from that curse of demonic theft, BUT it takes more than one happening to make a pattern. Two times is great, but five instances of favor is even better.
And another thing about this favor ... while I was waiting for my payment to post, I was about to do something else to make the tickets happen, and if I'd done that something else, I would've paid more for lesser seats. God ordained the angel(s) who alter circumstances to move things around so that I could receive favor. Just two weeks ago, God was trying to do that for me, and I pushed and pushed and pushed and did the something else and ended up losing a bit of money, a lot of time and causing myself and others much stress because I didn't realize He was ordering things for me in favor.

Happy & Blessed 2018, dear ones!
I took my first fruit flight and all went well. I dedicated my travels for this year to The King and Kingdom, blessed the Bombardier Q400 I was on and rejoiced at ways The Lord showed up.
First of all, the flight was overbooked the night before which is never good for someone, and that someone is sometimes me and was me December 30th - two flights in a row. I headed to the airport at 5:15a anyway loosing angels to go before me and asking The Father to make a way where there seemed to be no way. But I also told him, "Lord, if you don't want to, that's fine. I have to stop expecting You to deliver me out of everything I get into and giving me everything I want."
That's big growth, bt dubbs. I've been sharing how He's been maturing me here and there - some on the Prophecy blog and a bit on Zari Banks, mostly with those I'm mentoring and/or praying with because I've invited them along on the journey to deep deliverance.
Got to the airport, on time ... not too early, not too late ... time to go to the Alaska Lounge for a light breakfast and then down to the gate. Got on flight 2206, seat 7E, door 7. I thanked The Lord as I walked to the plane and smiled at my seat and door - 77. Holy Spirit's been requesting my attention using 77 since late October.
As often happens when flying between the two cities I reside in, the pilot announced there'd be turbulence because of the weather - clouds, rain and wind. As I've grown accustomed to when flying, I put on anointing oil, covered the plane, crew and passengers with The Blood of Yeshua, loosed The Hosts of Heaven to go before us and clear a pathway through the sky for a safe and event-free flight and put on my headphones to rest for 30 minutes.
God has graced me with authority and angels over the air when I'm flying. Not sure why He has, but I appreciate it because I used to be a nervousy flyer. Years ago I was terrified at takeoff, landing and at any bump or noise in between. I got delivered from unforgiveness in 2012 and the fear of flying, snakes and (most) spiders - still don't like to be startled - was defeated. Perhaps He did so because He's the one who asked me to travel. Maybe because He knows my history and knew that I started traveling regularly in 2017 begrudgingly. I have come to love traveling, but the grace, authority and angels are still available to me and I'm thankful to Him for that favor.
In my past immaturity, I thought I would be able take this anointing for safe flying and release it to you to receive by faith. I know now that's not always how God works things for us. He hasn't given me any instruction to release this grace to anyone else, and as I said above I don't know what's required to qualify for it. Maybe I'll ask Him sometime this year, and let you know what I learn - got a ton going on right now so don't have a time frame. It's a grace that He released at His volition, which I never requested, expected or knew was a possibility. What I do know about Yahweh is that you can ask Him for anything. You may not get it, but you can sure ask without fear or hesitation ... and ask in faith.
What I can do is bless you.
I bless you and your year 2018. I bless your travels and cities. I pray you hunger for deep deliverance and grow in intimacy with The Godhead. I declare this all by faith in Yeshua and seal it by Holy Spirit.

GOD's faithfulness is amazing! He takes such excellent care of me and my concerns. I would've been in jail and worser ... BUT GOD!!
Most women aren't taught how to speak properly to men. Therefore, because we don't say what we really mean we don't receive what we really want from them. I teach women how to talk to men and their lives, marriages and dating relationships change for the better.
The enemy's always doing something. Don't get distracted or blame God for delays. Instead stay focused and kick their butts.
I am my Dad's princess. And it's my birthday today, so I'm gonna get spoiled big time!
I love being invited to heaven to visit Dad or Yeshua. Watch this video to hear about a recent encounter I had in heaven.
