VICTORY IS MY NAME

god-is-a-brown-girl-too-2010-retreat-161I was at the Mariandale Retreat Center today to ensure that on July 16-18, God is a Brown Girl Too®‘s second annual retreat will provide an awesome opportunity for you to “Awaken to Love,” which is this year’s theme.  I am excited, so excited that I feel like jumping up and down in anticipation because I know that we are going to have a fabulous time.  It is the perfect environment for you to do the work that needs to be done to release and heal, rejuvenate and energize, recreate and resurrect the power and presence of God in you.  So get your registrations in!  You don’t want to miss this powerful gathering of sisters in the Spirit.  We are coming from Washington D.C., North Carolina, Michigan, New Jersey, California, and several other places to center in a new energy, hear a new calling, and receive a new story of the inexhaustible source of God expressing as us.  We will meditate, pray, praise, worship, enter the silence, and receive our blessings in a magnificent way.

I have extended the $100 discount deadline to July 1, so you can register on line and send your check to me to avoid that part of the registration fee.  This amount includes a single room, three meals, powerful workshops, and spiritual grounds to open the mind, heart and soul in a new way.

In the interim, enjoy the words of Victory, one of the voices of God is a Brown Girl Too that was heard at the last retreat:

GBGII CoverI am the time before, the was then, the beginning now.  I am the breath-filled space, the light-filled hand, the love-filled heart, the joy-filled dance.  Prayers call to me, and I anoint believers with the evidence of things hoped for and the miracles of things unseen.  When everyone is looking for God, as something more extraordinary than themselves, they will miss me — even though I am here.

I am the time before, the was then, the beginning now.  I am the breath-breath-10filled space, the light-filled hand, the love-filled heart, the joy-filled dance.  Prayers call to me, and I anoint believers with the evidence of things hoped for and the miracles of things unseen.  When everyone is looking for God, as something more extraordinary than themselves, they will miss me — even though I am here.

If I need you to release your fears, will you open your eyes and realize the strength of your own salvation?  Will you praise the divine creation that you are?  Will you kneel with me at the altar of infinite possibilities?  Will you keep your promise to be the blessing that you were born to be? 

Discover the Power Within ThreeWho am I?  They call me Victory.  What am I?  I am the daughter of the first and the last, the beginning and the end, the alpha and the omega — brown as the soil of my mother.  Where am I? I live wherever you shine your light. 

If you are waiting by the healing pool for someone to lift you in; if you are reaching to touch the garment of wholeness; if you are weary in the race and cannot go any further; if you are down in the valley and need some lifting up, then all you have to do is call my name.

breath3I am greater than you could ever imagine.  I am the healing balm, the burning bush, the living water.
I can walk through the fire, cut to the chaise, rise to the occasion. I never lose, never miss, never  falter.
I am closer to you than hands and feet, closer to you than the air that you breathe and the space that you take up.

Victory is my name, and you — made in the image and likeness of God — are all that I am. 

breath-7If you are looking for God, if you are looking for freedom, if you are looking for prosperity — all you have to do is look within.  And there, you will find me.  I am the ground upon which you stand, more than the economy, richer than a stimulus, better than a job.  I am the divine surplus — always giving, always forming, always molding, always shaping, always rewarding, always liberating.

If you have forgotten me, re-discover who you are, taste the wisdom of your highest self, push past your self-imposed limitations, leave the prison of your own mind, and imagine God as simple as a plain brown girl.
