Unlock your lock!

Unlock the impossible and become I’m possible!

Just Addriana...

If it can be unlocked then it must be locked. If it can be unlocked then it must be locked.

You’ve been asking God to open doors, to unlock what is holding you back from pursuing your passion. This week I am going to touch on a few things, maybe it’s your fear of change, the fear of failing or maybe your feel unqualified. God has already unlocked the doors to your passion now it time to open them and walk into your divine purpose. Your passion is going to look a bit different from mine. Why? Because we were all created differently in order to fulfill a different purpose.  Your passion and your purpose are specific to who your are, where you are located, who surrounds you and what circumstances you find yourself in, which are completely different from mine. That is why the Bible says you are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” You are unique, crested exactly to…

Between the ears…

In Uncategorized on October 4, 2015 at 5:23 PM

What chatter is happening between your ears that is keeping you from your purposed steps?

Just Addriana...

You biggest obstacle lies between your ears…your own natural intelligence, a.k.a human reasoning. When your mind says, its impossible; God says, “I’m possible.” Your perception of God is key to your day-to-day battle between the ears. Our perception warps, twists and darkens our perspective because we just don’t see God. The real battle of your life is in your head, it’s not in your circumstance. Your battleground is not a geographical location, it’s not your debt, it’s not your past, it’s not what people did or say about you that matters!!! It is what you say and think about yourself that holds you back and threatens your destiny!

According to Merriam Webster reason is defined as a statement or fact that explains why something is the way it is, why someone does, thinks, or says something, or why someone behaves a certain way. Our human reasoning tells us why we…

Did I meet you today?

Who are you…have we met?

IMG_6917 New York City

I usually drive to New York City but this day I decided to take the train. Ready with my notepad and headphones, I was going to block out the world and write…but God had different plans. I sat close to a window, reached into my bag for my pen and pad, then felt a nudge…”you will meet me today.”  I decided to just stay put, no writing or music…just sit and wait. Who would I meet today?

As I gazed out the window, a business woman sat next to me. She was stressed, running late and upset the train was crowded. She cursed under her breath and I smiled at her. She apologized for her words and began to rant about her life being a mess. As a life coach I asked her simple questions, questions that helped refocus and take the next step whatever that may…

My Declarations!

In Uncategorized on September 10, 2015 at 3:58 PM

What are you speaking into your life? Speak life into every situation and God’s promises over yourself and situation.

Just Addriana...

  • I am... I am…

    I am a child of God. (John 1:12). I am not my biological father’s rejection.

  • I am a branch of the true vine, and a conduit of Christ’s life. (John 15:1, 5). He tells me that He is the vine and I am a branch, so apart from Jesus I can accomplish nothing.
  • I am a friend of Jesus. (John 15:15) When all else failed and I had no one to turn to He was always there waiting for me with opened arms.
  • I have been justified and redeemed. (Romans 3:24) Jesus justified me freely by His grace, so my past is exactly that…done and over with, I do not live there anymore so why relive it in my mind.
  • My old self was crucified with Christ, and I am no longer a slave to sin. (Romans 6:6) I am not my molestation. I am not…

Show me how…

It is hard to understand, “Forgiveness is not about removing someone else’s liability but about setting our hearts free.” It doesn’t mean that what this man did to me is fine or releases him from his accountability to the betrayal. But what it does mean is that I can’t handle it and I gave it to God so He can.

…to do the impossible. ~ Matthew West

Forgive and forget, get over it, let it go…words from those who have never had to actually do it! Every one says forgiveness is a lovely idea until they have to forgive. ~ C.S. Lewis. The word itself seems like something impossible to do when we think of things that hurt us to the very core of our existence. To those giving advice it’s a simple gesture but to those having to extend forgiveness it’s as if a part of the heart is experiencing the offense all over again and it feels just as fresh. I came to this place of forgiveness a few years ago. A place so daunting that I felt as if I had forgotten how to breathe.  It was the day I extended forgiveness to a man who robbed me of my innocence at the tender age of…

Toxic Relationships

In Uncategorized on August 28, 2015 at 7:24 AM

Toxic People: Blamer, Drainer, Shamer, or Gossiper…who are you surrounding yourself with? Be honest with yourself, Do you feel upbeat and energized when your with this person, or drained and depleted?

Just Addriana...

Toxic Relationships deplete you. Today its  all about the toxic people who constantly drain your energy, in both obvious and subtle ways. These toxic people will exhaust you or deter you from your path of living a fulfilled life. Life coach Cheryl Richardson describes five types of toxic qualities in people. God doesn’t expect you to go at  this life alone, no one should ever think that was their destiny. However, He also doesn’t want you to get with these types of people because misery loves company and at the end of the relationship it will be you who will be miserable.  The Bible clearly states how to deal with these people and their toxic qualities.
The Blamer: This person likes to hear his own voice. He constantly complains about what isn’t working in his life and yet gets energy from complaining and dumping his frustrations on you. The reason always…

Road to Success?

Road to Success

Road to Success

Pre-decide that everything no matter what it may be, will be beautiful! Success is not an option, it is an obligation. Stop wishing for success and start willing the success to happen because failure IS on the road to success. it is grounded into the pavement IN the road to success. EVERY step you take beyond your fears, your doubts, your anxieties, you crush failure into your road to YOUR SUCCESS! Faith is knowing in your heart that its (whatever it is) right in front of you but not seeing it…yet!

  1. What are you willing to do so that your story is written the way you want? (that scares you, that fills you with the fear of failure)
  2. Are you willing to get out of your own way and God’s?
  3. What is your next right step on your road to success?

Keeping It Simple & Straightforward

The Sting of Unforgiveness

In Uncategorized on August 19, 2015 at 3:33 PM

I am going back into the journey that has brought me to this place. I sit in awe of all that God has brought me to and through. I can say that life hasn’t been easy but the blows life handed me made me stronger than I ever imagined I could be.

Just Addriana...

“People have to forgive. We don’t have to keep them in our lives, we don’t be have to befriend them, we don’t have to send them heart texts but we have to forgive them, to overlook to let go, in order to be free. Because if we don’t we are tying rock to our feet too much for our wings to carry.” ~ C. Joybell C.

I know we think that forgiveness is letting someone of the “hook,” or letting yourself off the “hook” by not talking and just “forgetting” it ever happened. This causes the situation to fester and grow, consequently turning into bitterness and hatred. Forgiveness is about releasing and freeing yourself.

Forgiveness was one of the most difficult choices I had to make in my life! Ultimately, it freed me from a bondage I never realized I was in. I was angry, guarded, defensive, not affectionate…

The Prize Fighter!!!

In Uncategorized on August 18, 2015 at 7:54 PM

Sometimes we need to turn off the noise of this world and just breathe for a moment. I have been away for a bit of time regrouping, reorganizing and reinventing myself. Transformed by the battle because its not about how hard you hit, but about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.

Theres an old saying: Champions don’t become champions in the ring – they are merely recognized there. If you want to see where someone develops into a champion, look at his daily routine.

The boxer trains day in and day out diligently striving to achieve his goal. Sacrificing his time, body and mind, years before entering a ring. He reads training manuals, watches videos and eats for fuel.  He is a champion not by arriving in the ring but succeeding in his goal in becoming the best fighter he can possibly become. There were obstacles he had to overcome, there were sparring partners ready to knock him off his course and then there were just the everyday struggles of trying to keep it together…just one more day.

What is your struggle? What is your fight? Who or what is your opposing force? What is your race? Do you know that…

…3,2,1 BLAST OFF

In Uncategorized on February 25, 2015 at 8:49 AM

I have been on a brief writing hiatus due to painful circumstances: loss of a loved one, betrayal, lies, deception, and chaos…but it is here that my weakness has met God’s strength. I can do nothing about all that has occurred, I can’t undo it or rub a lamp and make it disappear, however, God states in Genesis 50:20, “what was meant to harm me, God meant for good…” It will turn to my favor and is already.  God is moving mountains, scales off my eyes and these disappointments are becoming His-appointments. The launching pad is ready and the countdown has begun… Stay tuned and see God show up and show off… 3,2,1, blast off!
