Habakkuk 3:17-19


17 Though the fig tree may not blossom,
Nor fruit be on the vines;
Though the labor of the olive may fail,
And the fields yield no food;
Though the flock may be cut off from the fold,
And there be no herd in the stalls—
18 Yet I will  rejoice in the Lord,
I will joy in the God of my salvation.
19 The Lord God is my strength;
He will make my feet like  deer’s feet,
And He will make me  walk on my high hills.
To the Chief Musician. With my stringed instruments.

Overcoming - Negative Inner Dialogue - Put your praise on


"Put your praise on"

My name is Akesa Batchman. I am Polynesian from the south pacific island of American Samoa which means rich food, large family, and good vibes! I’m a mother of five, who recently relocated from California to North Carolina. Previously worked in the Healthcare Industry for almost 15 years and switched to Aviation 3 years ago. After traveling for work as a Flight Attendant based originally in Los Angeles then transferring to Washington DC, I decided to pursue obtaining my pilot’s license full time a few months ago.

Aviation has always been a dream I never imagined I could achieve, but I believe was birthed in me as a child while I was living in Hawaii.

Our family moved to San Diego when I was 12 years old, with my parents working as civilians with government jobs. In my culture we’re very spiritual and religion is a staple of our community, however my mom changed the trajectory of our family when she...

Overcome Poverty Mentality




Poverty is defined as the state of being inferior in quality or insufficient in amount. I have noticed that poverty never shows up alone in a person’s life – It’s gang includes hopelessness, depression and victimhood (you know, the “poor me, pity me” syndrome). These together with poverty create a poverty mentality.

Society has pushed the idea that success is a big bank account filled with unlimited cash, fancy cars, big houses. “The good life” is portrayed as parties and brand-named clothing and crowds of people you can call “friends”.  People have judged themselves and others against this standard. This image has been drummed into us since kindergarten, and for today’s little ones, as soon as that device is put into their little hands.

It is only as we get older and wiser we discover that true success in life has nothing...

Overcome Fear of Failure with Faith


God's got this. If I make the wrong choice, He's got plan B, C, D, E....

God has put it on my heart to share my latest experience of quitting my job last May, and going back into business for myself.  I heard God speak to me at Joyce Meyer's conference in April to quit my job.  It took about 7 weeks, due to fear, to do just that.
God IS good!
I am 56, almost 57 years old. I have been sober and drug free for over 36 years.  I've overcome an extremely abusive childhood of mental, emotional, and physical abuse. I have built 3 successful businesses from the ground up.  I enjoy my life and love to laugh and have fun, withOUT feeling guilty about it!

Steps to overcoming fear of failure


Overcoming fear of failure - Deal with it

There is a moment when failure shows up – when you realize it's at YOUR front door, in your life. In spite of everything you thought, planned and purposed – here it is… It’s devastating and brings fear with it.
I remember the first time I experienced failure. I thought “my life is over. I will be forever branded as a failure and there is just no hope.”
If you are breathing, you have experienced this as some point. It has taken me a good 20 years to realize that everyone will experience failure – it’s part of life.
However, the message from my parents, my educators, and even my Sunday school teacher was that my life has been setup to succeed. That was the point of life after all, right?
Failure was not an option – that would result in disappointing my parents and more importantly God.
I struggled to deal with that first failure – I...

Overcoming - Fear of Failure


Some things in life are unavoidable...

Two of them are being born and dying. But there are also other unavoidable things , like the fear of failure.
No matter how hard we try, we will encounter them. The difference is how we handle the fear of failure.
Each person is different, each person handles circumstances differently. And each person has different fears around failures. I’m no different, I also have them. And sometimes, I fear failing.
What determines failure? Is it the standard or goal set by somebody else like in an exam or test? Or, is it a goal that we’ve set for ourselves? Is it a feeling of failing somebody else?
What creates our fears? Are they from past experiences,  from what we’ve been told by others, or the enemy planting thoughts in our minds?  No matter how our fears developed, they are there, and they are real, too real for our comfort.
What should we do with our fears?
Should we ignore them,  try...

Episode 1: Overcoming - Begin Again




"I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.” - Apostle Paul (Philippians 4:11)

Paul was clearly a confident believer and nothing could sway him.
But what happens when you’re visited by doubts…and fears…and anxiety…and failures...? What then?
I mean, we fought them off so many times. We had the counseling, got the help, practiced mindfulness, prayed a ton… But back in they creep. How do we deal with these unwelcome visitors then?
Simple...We begin again.
We refuse to be discouraged or give up.
Jesus never gave up on you when you were living in sin apart from God. When you were a dead man/woman walking the earth with no future.
No one gave up on you when you were learning to walk. “What a loser! He can’t put one foot in front of the other. Forget it. He’s bound to the stroller.” Nope. They kept helping you up…over and...
