Staying in line and in order with what God has for you can be SO difficult. You have people watching every move that you make. People waiting in the wings for you to fail. And more so, people to bring up what “God said He would do for you.”

In my life, I have had to make some TOUGH decisions. Not based on what I think is right, but based on what God is telling me to do. And sometimes it makes absolutely NO sense to me or to the ones looking in from the outside. But what does make sense is the promises that He whispered to me ever so gently. You are responsible for what God tells you to do because no one understands the relationship that you have with God but YOU! Therefore there is no reason why you should have to explain to others what God told YOU to do. If He is constantly telling you to make a phone call to someone about a business deal and you have no money to bring to the table, there just might be a blessing for you on the other side. But it begins with FAITH from you in order to make the steps that He is asking you. Yes you don’t have any money, Yes you have never made a business deal before, Yes you have never had to rely on someone else to help you, but with God being your  mouth piece and fueling you, there is no way that you will loose!

You see, sometimes all it takes is for us to step out on faith and do that thing that God has been telling us to do. But the real problem is not faith. You have that. You believe that it can be done. It’s obedience. Obedience is the other part of faith that we forget about often. And it’s not always that we are not willing to obey, it’s that we don’t know what it will look like when we do obey. Or maybe we do. It may look dumb to the next person, so you don’t want them to think that you are some “Jesus Freak”. LET THEM THINK IT! God is NOT ashamed of you so why be ashamed of Him? He is telling you to do something for your own benefit! NOT HIS! **think about it**.

So my hope is that you find it in the depths of you to obey what God is telling you in this season in regards to moving forward in your life. It may hurt or be uncomfortable for you because you have never had to depend on Him this much. But I have been saying this for a couple of months now. Those who are plugged into God during this season and are willing to be radical for Him, will be blessed TREMENDOUSLY! The struggle is over. The growing part is done once you step out! The remainder of this year is harvest time and I guareentee you that if you allow Him to work in your life, and not worry about what it look or feels like, the rest of this year will be SUPERCALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS!!!! 🙂


If Today Was Your Last Day?

What would you do? What wouldn’t you do? You have 24 hours to forgive, forget, repair, but most importantly, LIVE! Live like it is your last day, and make all of those “big” things that have been taking over you life, small in comparison to knowing that 24 hours is all that you have to live.

Thought that I would give you some motivation this morning. Nickleback sings it the best! Enjoy and make this day the BEST day of your life! 😉


It’s time

**IT'S TIME!!** Image by Google

Time for what you ask? Time for your dreams to be a reality. Time for all of the old notebooks you were writing in to be dusted off and get a FRESH…NEW….POWERFUL idea breathed into you!

Truth is, some of us have come to the point where we are stale. Just alive and not living! Not living the dream that has been purposed for you. The dream that has been in you and so alive, and then something happened. Fear. This one little negative word took a hold of you. Took a hold of you so much so that you just decided to fall back. Decided to allow your insecurities and others to play down your dreams.

I mean really. Think about it. You have allowed MAN….a person who has NO DOMINION or AUTHORITY over your life to change the whole plan that God has destined for you? REALLY?!?! I have been in this place before and when I look back at it….it’s like really Kim? Who cares that no one believes what God told you to do will ever succeed. Let’s put it like this. If Noah never adhered to what God told him about building the ark, do you think that you would even be here? What Noah did saved man kind even though God wiped OUT mankind! Do you know how important his job was? Really! Your assignment can be the next big thing that God is using to save a generation.

Take what you have in the depths of your belly and birth it out! Come out of fear! Come out of depression! Come out of self-defeat! Come out of negativity! Come out of confusion! Do what you KNOW is right in the eyes of God NOT man! You are to live for an audience of ONE…and the ONE that I am referring to is GOD!! Become the MAN of God you KNOW you are to be! Become the WOMAN of God you KNOW you are to be!

The time has come for you to come out of this “rut” and do what you know! The pity party is over and and IT’S TIME to just do it! The blessing is on the other side of your trouble, and the only way to get there is to get out of the stale place and take your blessing! Speak that thing! Walk that thing! And KNOW that that thing is yours! It can only be done when you believe and know that it will be done in Jesus name! So what are you waiting for?

Happy Thanksgiving!,Merry Christmas!,Happy New Year!,Happy Easter!……


I missed wishing you all the well wishes of the past few months, but you know what? I’m back! I’m back with a few little tricks in my pocket. Same message but coming back STRONG. Back with some folks who have been embracing a whole lot of the “get-up-and-go” mentality and are KILLING it these days! What am I talking about? Well for those of you who didn’t follow me before, let me bring you up to speed.

I am a STRONG believer in making life happen for YOU with the tools that God has given you. Using ALL that you got to get to where you going. It’s like being in a race. You are at the starting blocks. You hear that gun go off.  And you take off. You take off with all your might, using every fiber in you, with only the finish line in your view. Not the person to your right, and not the person to your left. But the goal of the finish line in your view.

That is what we are about here. Using your God given talent’s, abilities, skills, characteristics, and whatever it may be to bring joy to someone else’s life.

I’m telling you people. I have some people who have been investing time into their talents. People who have held on despite some setbacks. And they are bringing it!Bringing it with a purpose!

I can hear some of ya’ll saying, “well what do I want to know about someone else’s success for? That is just shoving it in my face.” Well actually no it is not. It’s proving that if you take what you have, and put it in action towards your goals, God will take care of the rest. The purpose of this is to give you inspiration to move forward with those dreams and hopes that you have been putting up on the shelf. And we are all here to help you move towards that mark.

I will be sharing some helpful tips about getting started from right where you are. No matter what your goals are. No matter your income. And no matter the resources that you have. We are going to make it happen for you! 🙂

SOOOO, this week we are starting off with a BIG BANG and I hope that you would join me in sharing the good news of what God has done in some of our lives.

*Hello people!*

*Been working on my hobby...not eating...but taking pics!LOL*

*My place of solitude. Edited pic of Piedmont Park*

Who is J.O.L?

It’s another talent people, and I am happy to announce the talents of a cool cat from around the way *I have always wanted to say that! LOL* Seriously, this guy has been around for a long time in the Atlanta area. He is very talented and tends to keep it 100% ALL THE TIME. He can EASILY be found in many of the underground Hip-Hop spots around Atlanta, which I absolutely love. Think of a stage, low lights, a tight beat with a hot verse, a crowd that understands creativity, and a mic that is waiting to be ‘spit’ into, this is his home. J.O.L., or better known as JAWZ OF LIFE, is a phenomenal artist that takes his gift seriously, here is what he had to say:


*Jawz of Life!!*

Kimberly Renay: Who is J.O.L. (Jawz of Life)? 

J.O.L: Jawz of Life is a positive emcee, entertainer, host , Vice President of the BMC company based out of Los Angeles, Cali. A native of Decatur, Ga.

Kimberly Renay: So how did you end up with the name Jawz of Life?

J.O.L.: The name derived from the emergency “jaws of life ” used to bring people out of  tragic car accidents..I figured I’d use my “jawz” to do the same lyrical….*laughs*…Musically Jawz is a part of many different crews : Dungeon Family, The 5ive, IMA , and my newest group Passport.

*Jawz of Life*

Kimberly Renay: So I see that you have many groups that you are apart of across ATL, what inspired you in the beginning to become an artist?

J.O.L.: The inspirations vary from J.Lee , a collegemate at Alcorn State University, to Andre 3000, Common, Black Thought of the Roots and Jay-Z …and many more too many to name *lol*

Kimberly Renay: Did you just say Common and Black Thought?! Common is my first love…*heeeey boo! Smiling*  So speaking of all of these artist, which artist would you like to go into a head to head battle with? 

J.O.L.:   I’ve never claim to be a “Battle” emcee however I’ve never lost a battle that I was in *laughs*..but I’d have to say I would always wonder if Jay came at me how would I respond…I love challenges so that would actually excite me, like I’m pretty sure it did Nas when they were going head up to go at it with a legend.

*JOL,the way he pointing in this pic would give you an indication that in a battle this dude would be a BEAST!LOL*

Kimberly Renay:   Well alrightly then Mr. I Never Lost a Battle! *laughs* Wouldn’t that be a site to see you and Jay on the stage! Where is the craziest place that you have performed?

J.O.L.: The craziest place I’ve performed would have to say this place back in the day called the “normanclature” *not sure if spelling correct* but it is now Door 44 in the A…it was really strange how the stage was set up and I only remember 4 people being at that show and one guy was disabled in a wheelchair but he loved hip-hop so he “rolled” wit it!! ***hahahaha***…ALSO Bangkok,Thailand was an awesome experience..the people called me 50cent when I walked off the plane..I’m thinkin ..boi stop *big boi voice..I look nothing like dude!*laughs*

Kimberly Renay: Yea you look nothing like him, people people people!! *LOL*   Ok you know I have to ask this, when did you fall in love with Hip-Hop? *for all of my Brown Sugar fans out there…lol.*

J.O.L: I fell in love with hip-hop when I heard Rakim say “thought I was a donut you tried to glaze me”….I lost it! Like that was the 1st metaphor I remember hearing…the rest is history.

Kimberly Renay: Classic! And that is why Hip-Hop still lives, what new projects is J.O.L. working on?

J.O.L.:Right now I’m finishing up a goal I set on January 1st 2010 and that was too complete 100 songs or verses or hooks..whatever I breathe the end of the year and give it away in the process…so far so good, I have “40 to go”..I know gotta turn it on right? I will trust me ….love pressure..also bout to release our 1st Passport Album and Dungeoneze Mix Tape solo project will follow tentatively titled “Enuff is Enuff”.

*JOL, in deep thought!LOL*

Kimberly Renay:  Wow sounds like you set a tough goal for 2010, and it looks like you are going to hit the mark! Can’t wait to hear all 100 verses/hooks. Would you trade this talent for anything? If so, what would it be? 

J.O.L.: NO!, Next question! *laughs*

Kimberly Renay: Well alrighty then, with that being said, how can the readers get in touch with J.O.L.? 

J.O.L.: You can follow me on at  and on Facebook …MySpace is *if anybody still goes on there anymore! lol* And our new website for Passport is!!

KimberlyRenay: Give us a few upcoming dates, I know that you have a line-up!

J.O.L.: *laughs* Oh yeah, I sure do, always have a show lined up. I will be rocking Sunday Oct 3 at Cloud 9..177 peters street. 7pm Apache Cafe Oct 5 10pm other locations tba….but if you follow me on twitter and Facebook you won’t miss the promo I promise! 😉

People, I can’t stress this enough, when you find your passion go with it. This man just said his craziest moment was performing in front of 4 people! How much dedication and courage does it take for one to do this? Now I can tell you that J.O.L. is no longer performing in front of 4 people, *lmbo* I have been to his shows, and he has a LARGE following of fans who loves his music, are very dedicated, and show up at ALL shows. This goes to show that as time goes on and you perfect your talent, you get to travel the world, *Bangkok* and touch other people with your gifts. Be who you are, and I guarantee you that people will learn to love who you are and what you have become. Are you chasing your dream or are you having recurring ‘nightmares’ about your future? Make it happen folks…another Tuesday and talent….
