Increasing My Faith…

Hey loves! God has seriously been dealing with me in the area of faith since August. I shared a few posts ago that I’d been reading “God’s Plan for pregnancy” by  Neridra Walker. If you haven’t picked it up, stop right here and go order it on Amazon. This book has completely changed my life AND given me a new revelation. I see the Word and I view faith differently. We’ve all been taught to have faith as believers, but if you are anything like me.. it’s been more of a “have faith for a new house, or speak it into the atmosphere type thing.” No, the faith I’m speaking of is that which is spoken of in Hebrews 11:1 which says: “Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses].”

Faith is knowing that God will be God in every situation, every season, every circumstance and in every area. This faith isn’t exercised on a “as-needed” basis, but this faith is walked out daily as believers. Everything about being a believer relies on faith.  

You might’ve noticed in my post “no longer trying to conceive,” that my language was different. I said that I was going to stop speaking the doctor’s report and declare the Word of God over my life. I said that I was going to stand on the Word of God and nothing else. Since then, I’ve been very intentional about: 

  1. Spending time STUDYING and READING THE WORD – How can you have faith in that which you do not know? How can you have faith in a God of which you do not know? If you are slacking in this area, then I encourage you to put down whatever is absorbing your time and pick up your Bible. Not a blog, not a Youtube video, not a podcast. Pick up your Word and start reading. Read, so that you will know God’s character and nature. Write it down so that you remember WHO GOD IS and what His Word says. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17
  2. Speaking ONLY that which aligns with the word of God- I truly believe that what you speak out loud is what your heart truly believes. Yes, we all have moments of fear & doubt that we have to fight through with meditation on the Word. But, if you are constantly speaking “I have _________. Or, I am infertile. Or, I can’t get pregnant. Or even, I’m broke. I can’t find a job.” Then, those are the things that are truly in your heart. I don’t mean that we shouldn’t speak factually and be aware of the situation. But, we do need to be mindful and know what God says about things. That is what you should believe, and those are the things you should SPEAK. 
  3. Praying the Will of God.- I used to struggle with knowing how to do this. I made it way harder than it needed to be. Listen, if you want to know what God’s will is for you regarding having children or healing- go to what He has ALREADY SPOKEN = THE WORD. There you will find his Will. “Be fruitful and multiply, be made whole, healed, conceive.” All of these things are in God’s Will, because it’s HIS WORD. You don’t have to worry about a divine writing on the wall that says “this is God’s will for your life (insert name.) That’s what I used to wait on! Listen, go back to #1 and you will begin to know “God’s Will” in everything.  Pray what the Word says about different areas and you will find a confident assurance wash over you after prayer!

Not only has God been speaking to me about faith, but several people have been posting about this as well. I’m going to share a few resources that can help you if you are struggling on your Faith walk.. but remember that NOTHING can replace time spent in the Word of God.

  1. Of course the book I mentioned earlier, God’s Plan for Pregnancy by Neridra Walker.
  2. My sister in Christ, Jasmine, has an amazing podcast here, where she recently taught on faith. Life. Changing.
  3. This teaching titled “Are You Fully Persuaded” by Mrs. Andrea Scott. She lead our Monday prayer call for My Predestined One, then uploaded to her youtube channel. Powerful teaching that encourages us to be fully persuaded and walk in faith. 

God is moving in the season, unexpected and supernatural miracles ARE happening. BUT, they are only happening in the lives of those that are standing in FAITHFUL expectation and who believe!

Ladies, I’m standing in faith for a miracle. Don’t you believe that yours can come as well? What are you believing God for? Leave your prayer requests below so that I can pray for you! & as always,

Raven Thomas helped me in my TTC journey by giving me knowledge on what was actually going on with my body and helping me understand my hormones. She educated me on hormone imbalance and the negative affects  that it  has on the body. Raven's  outstanding wisdom lead to me getting pregnant. She walked me through my pregnancy with healthy ways of eating,books and managing my emotions in a healthy way to promote a wonderful stress free pregnancy. During my Postpartum phase she answered all of my questions for breastfeeding, and how to still rest with multiple kids for recovery, any issue I had she made sure she gave me the emotional support as well as a game plan to overcome my issues I was having. I highly recommend her for all of your Doula needs and brestfeeding services. She has such a heart for women and wellness!!

Raye the doula was everything I needed this first time around breastfeeding. I’m a mom of 3, ages 3,2, and now a 9 week old baby boy. I didn’t get the opportunity to have such an empowering, and proactive lactation specialist with my first two. I have inverted nipples but now they both are completely pulled out. The techniques she gave and advice are exactly what I needed. Before, I started using her- in my 1st week postpartum, I got mastitis, I had a fever and more... Raye provided that’s when I was able to get some good advice and support about relieving the clogged milk ducts and gave me help positioning to make breastfeeding easier. Once you get that infection, you feel horrible, but she helped make the experience as comfortable as possible. Don’t miss out of booking her, even if you may not have any problems with breastfeeding like I did. As a postpartum mom, you always need someone in your corner to assist and be there for you. Get a team and on your team have her, Raye the doula. Larisa Cleaves, Mom of 3, Wife, Business Owner

Raven was amazing, she helped me with my cyst and bacteria infection. She knew EXACTLY what I needed to address each issue. She made sure I had everything I needed. Even when I arrived at the store, I called her to make sure I had the correct items... she answered right away and clarified that I had everything. She checked on me every few days to make sure my issues was getting taking care of. I highly recommend a session with Raven for any holistic womb care, health, holistic medicine, etc. thank you Raven so much! Love you

If you’re wondering whether or not you can receive quality care from a doula even if it’s just virtually the answer is yes. Raven provided vital information on what I could expect, request, decline, and more throughout my pregnancy experience. The actual doula I chose to contract here in New York where I live is everything Raven told me I should have in a doula. When had my virtual consultation with Raven, she was polite, informative, reassuring and even answered my million questions. I think a virtual consultation is key for anyone who is unsure about what doulas do and who they are—and if doulas aren’t readily available in your area having the consultation helps with your search. If you are looking for someone to help you choose the right doula service, and you’re not able to meet in person, I would highly recommend having a consultation with Raven. Simply put, she is amazing. - Mrs. Adara Sherron First time mom to a baby girl.
