Have a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

SBI-Picquire- Happy Thanksgiving

Embracing Love!

Love is such a powerful word. Every day, even more this year, it has become even more of a driving force for me. These past several months have been some of our most trying as we are in the midst of a pandemic that has taken so many lives and affected so many others. We have grown weary of political rhetoric that divides more than unite us together in the face of battling an invisible foe. Everything that we have had to contend with has brought us to a place of thanksgiving. This year Thanksgiving is different, yet I feel it is stretching us to love even more.

I’m sure you recall the biblical story about the Good Samaritan. On his way to Jericho, a Jewish man was attacked and left on a deserted road half dead. Before long, a priest came by, saw the man and crossed over to the other side without offering any assistance. Not too long afterwards, a Levite came and got close enough to look at the man and kept going. Again, not offering any assistance. Many of us see firsthand our brothers’ and sisters’ plight, but just like the Jewish man and the priest we have elected to overlook it and do nothing.

Then along came a Samaritan—someone who, including the battered man, was despised because of his ethnicity. The Samaritan immediately attended to the man’s wounds and took him to a nearby inn where he nursed him through the night. Prior to leaving the next day, the Good Samaritan paid the man’s expenses in advance and promised to pay any additional expenses on his return. This act of humanity illustrates a commitment to love others as we love ourselves.

The Good Samaritan exemplifies a worthwhile character to emulate. He confronted a challenge and did not walk away from it. We face a similar challenge in battling this invisible foe. Refusal to do our part by simply wearing a mask demonstrates us walking away. The price is too high to walk away. We have already paid a high price in the thousands of lives lost, the strain on our health system, and the negative economic impact it has had.

My concern, as I hope is all our concern, is to do our part in combating this invisible foe. We cannot walk away and do nothing. We have a responsibility. “We need to remember: We’re at war with a virus — not with each other,” said President-Elect Joe Biden.

I am reminded of Jesus when he didn’t think it was beneath him to gird himself with a towel of servanthood and wash the feet of his disciples. I can only imagine how dirty those feet were from walking in the unpaved streets shared by humans and animals. Yet, Jesus humbled himself enough to wash those dirty nasty feet.

The towel of servanthood for us this Thanksgiving is a little smaller. It is a mask. Just like the towel Jesus used represented love for others, the mask that we wear today also represent love for others. I am amazed at how such a small piece of cloth has caused so much division when we desperately need to be united in this battle.

Every time I am reminded of the hundreds of thousands of lives lost and even more that are suffering, it causes me to love a little more and just wear a mask. I am grateful to be able to do my part in combating this noisome pestilence. You see, how can I say I love my neighbor as I love myself and I am not willing to demonstrate that love by not only helping to save others’ lives, but my own as well.

Love is patient, love is kind, and love is not selfish. We must love fervently. Love must be the guiding force for us this Thanksgiving and throughout the holiday season. President-Elect Joe Biden sums it up this way, “This Thanksgiving — and in anticipation of all the Thanksgivings to come — let us dream again. Let us commit ourselves to thinking not only of ourselves but of others.”

Have a Safe & Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Celebrate Your Mother’s Love!

Before we ever entered this world the pages of our lives were being written. Guess who was there? You’re right, our Mothers. She went through all the nuances of gestation in carrying us for nine months and the pains and travail of our birth. She was the one who changed our first diapers, fed us, and lovingly cooed to us of how much she loved us.

Throughout our maturation process, it was her love that propelled us forward and encouraged us to succeed. Our Mother’s made the sacrifices and loved us unconditionally. Throughout our book of life, our Mother’s love is there—sacrifice, tears, worry, sleepless nights, chastening, correcting, caring, believing in us, and having the faith for our success even before we had it. Without our Mothers, there would be no pages of our lives. Between every page of our life is our Mother’s love.

Celebrate your Mother’s Love every day of your life!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy New Year! Celebrate the Winner in You!

Celebrate the Winner in You in 2020!

It’s not just a new year, it’s a new decade! Like everyone else, I am having moments of reflections and moments of anticipation.

When I entered 2019, I made a commitment to myself to finish my books—Prayers for Success: Igniting the World to Achieve Success, I DECIDED: Moving from Resolution to Execution and Affirmations for Success: Daily Affirmations for Marketplace Influencers. That was my primary focus throughout 2019. I made the decision to place everything else aside and focus on completing an assignment that had been looming over me.

Whoa! Whoa! I achieved that assignment. The books are here! They are available right now! If you haven’t purchased yours, get them now at www.jassaipublishing.com.

This has been a journey for me, but now I am looking ahead to all that awaits me in this year’s journey. With the publishing of these books, I feel a release to move full speed ahead. Each of us have been inoculated with desires that are directly connected to our embracing the assignments God has strategically placed inside of us. The beauty of every assignment is that He has also equipped and empowered us to succeed.

As you peer into 2020 and a new decade, make the decision to fulfill every desire. If you feel you can’t accomplish them all, identify one or two that you can be committed to achieving. Believe me, when you complete the assignment it is going to bring you great joy, peace and bolster your confidence in forging you forward to the next one.

Keep in mind, that you must be committed to accomplishing all God has given you. It is more than just speaking faith name it and claim it declarations, you must have the corresponding actions to experience success in your endeavors.

For me, this year I am resurrecting previous assignments that I set aside while completing my books. Look to see Showers’ Blessing Inspire Blog and eblast, 11:59 A Minute ’til Minute Marketplace Prayer Boot Camp, Prayers for Success and Wisdom, Wealth & Riches with Jacqui as well as the return of Oh Break Out Empowerment and Leadership Experience and more.

I am exposing myself to you as an accountability factor. In order to be successful, you must put it out there so someone can hold you accountable. As you go over your commitments for the year, also identify someone whom you can trust to walk alongside you. Having that support is critical. There will be days when you will need a shoulder to lean on and there will be days when you need someone to celebrate with you as well. Never forget that God is always there with each step of your journey. You have to carve out daily time to spend with Him in meditation, prayer, fasting and consuming His Word.

God has placed so much inside each of us for us to excel and succeed. He never had any intentions for us to fail. The same winner DNA that is part of God is also a part of you. Every day God envisions you to be a winner. You must envision yourself as a winner. Winning is a mindset, regardless of what may be happening in your life. Your mindset to win propels you to be the winner you were created to be. That is the only way you are going to move successfully through 2020 and beyond through this decade.

Celebrate the Winner in You!

Happy New Year & New Decade!

Happy New Year! Enjoy the Journey!

Happy New Year,

The first day of the new year marks the end of the Christmas Holiday season. Our concerns turn to the cares of the routines of our lives. Many are preparing to go to work the next day. Suddenly, the festivities of the season begin to distance itself behind us. We embark on another fresh canvass of 365 days.

Many have written resolutions in hopes that a new year will provide a fresh perspective. In many instances, it does. A new year is a continuation of your journey. It would be great if everything suddenly changed at the stroke of midnight, but that isn’t the case. True transformation only takes place in our daily journey. Resolutions only bring transformation when we are committed to the daily routine of our journey. If there is no commitment to the transformative power of our daily routine, the resolutions will remain on that paper until the next year.

The journey of a year is that you are moving every day in a mindset to achieve success. It doesn’t matter the magnitude of the success, as along as you have a success mentality that propels you through the year. It’s a journey. The success of the journey begins and ends with your commitment to enjoying all the nuances that the journey entails—the good, the bad and the indifferent.

What you have to know is that each day and each experience is making 2019’s journey a success. With every day and experience, you are growing in so many ways. Your faith is increasing. Your confidence is bolstered. Your relationships are strengthened. Every aspect of your life experiences a metamorphosis of success in the journey.

Enjoy the journey! You’re on a path to achieve illimitable success in 2019!

Happy New Year!
