The Journey Begins…

ontheroadWe just got back from an amazing week in Valley Head Alabama, sitting at the feet of our mentor, Edwene Gaines. We are now Master Prosperity Teachers! We are making the commitment to teach the prosperity principles everywhere we go. So our real commitment is to live these principles and lead by example. Edwene’s 4 Spritiual Principles are: tithing, forgiveness, goal-setting and being on purpose with our lives. We commit to following these Principles everyday and in every way. By doing this, we know that we will live a more prosperous life.

We chose to attend this 4 day seminar, to learn how to become better teachers of the principles we are learning to apply to our everyday lives. We know that the best way to learn a concept is to teach one another. So we set out, with an intention and a passion to learn, apply and teach the Spiritual Principles that draws our prosperity.

Our belief and practice in the Spiritual Law of Tithing has proven to us that this life is all about giving and then receiving in equal measure. The more we give, the more we receive. We learned that tithing is actually a 2 step process. It is an equal exchange of energy. There is no prosperity in giving alone. We must also receive. It must be an equal exchange before the transaction is complete.

Forgiveness is one of the Spiritual Principles that is easy to forget or overlook but it is crucial to the prosperous life. Jesus taught,”…forgive us our debits as we forgive our debtors…” We belief that the debt he spoke of is not only debt with money but also in forgiveness. As our mentor, Edwene Gaines says,”All debt is about unforgiveness.” We cannot give freely with an open and loving heart if we are holding onto grudges or past misunderstandings that have gone unforgiven. (“…forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who have trespassed against us…”)

Another easily forgotten Spiritual Principle is goal setting. Setting goals is the “road map” for the prosperous life. Most of us cannot go to the grocery store without a list. Likewise, the prosperous life needs direction. Jesus taught us, “Ask and you shall receive.” Without setting goals, we drift through life rather than steering the boat. Setting a goal and then achieving it also gives us a measure of how far we have come and what remains to reach our desires.

Getting on purpose with our life helps us find and focus on the joy of living. Finding our passion and then making that our life’s purpose keeps us in the flow of prosperity. There is no greater joy than knowing your purpose. Finding and pursuing a purpose gives our lives meaning and drowns out the mundane and ordinary existence.

Prosperity applies to all avenues of our lives and we are committed to live full out, wide open and when our time is through, we intend to leave skid marks behind! After all as someone once said, “Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming ‘WOW What a Ride!'”
