Reply Kecia Willis on November 14, 2016 at 12:01 pm Thank you for this word Pastor Dee Dee. I just experienced a similar situation a month ago. My kitchen, living room and fattoom was renovated. My house was torn up from the floor up. I didn’t want any company to come over at all. But I didn’t fret I just went along with the process and the transformation is awesome. Sometimes you have to be patient through the process. Reply Linette on November 14, 2016 at 12:07 pm Such a great message!

The constant word to me from God in this season is DE-clutter!! You took what you had left and created an amazing tree…i love it and you! Reply Toya Wyche on November 15, 2016 at 3:37 pm Dr. Dee Dee, I so needed to hear this out of your mouth. Over the weekend, I went to check on my house in Southeast VA because the tenant was supposed to have moved out. When I got there, my refrigerator was stolen, the tenant’s car was still in the garage, AND overnight, the tenant broke into my house, manually moved my car from in front of the garage, and got his car out…YES, broke in while I slept there, AND left food in the cabinets, dishes in the dishwasher, a bed frame…all the “boxes” were EVERYWHERE…oh, did I say this was a relative??? After my melt-down, by the grace of God, I got everything boxed up and moved (allowed the person use of my furniture). Monday afternoon, I drove back to the DC area and half-way on my journey, I heard your voice say, “Father, You said!” and I went into prayer for the individual as well as me getting back everything that belongs to me. Now today, I see this! I so love you and I KNOW I will see the promise at the end of this, ICLUDING my new home. Thank you! Reply Sonya on November 15, 2016 at 4:53 pm Thank you Dr. DeeDee for your heart, encouragement and words of wisdom. Focusing on the Promise! Reply Katrina Banks on November 17, 2016 at 2:08 pm Praise God!! I Love It!!! Just part of the Process, Received Reply Mia on November 17, 2016 at 2:27 pm Dr. Deedee this was a great analysis of your message. I know even right now when it feels like everything is trying to get me to focus my attention to what’s not appearing to be going right at this time. ” boxes everywhere” lol However, I must admit it sometimes it is a significant challenge to maintain being “steadfast and unmovable “in being focused on the “Promise and not the Process ” sometimes I’m calm . Sometimes,I feel like screaming, crying Etc . Trusting God’s Word and focusing on your blog’s and the positive encouraging people like yourself I follow , I’m encouraged . Thanks for your transparency once again, it’s a Blessing …. Reply Anita R. on November 17, 2016 at 11:17 pm Thanks Dr. DeeDee, I so needed to hear that! Reply Angel D on November 18, 2016 at 7:12 am Thank you Pastor Dee Dee for this encouragememt! And your tree is beautiful!!!😘😘 Reply Kenyatta Robertson on November 21, 2016 at 8:13 am I opened the email, and listened to this message just in time. Thank you!! Love you! Reply Carmen on November 21, 2016 at 11:05 am I LOVED the video. I like the written blogs, but to see your beautiful face and smile was even better. I loved your top, vest, and necklace too! I’m use to seeing you in bling (:) but this was cute as well. Dr. Dee Dee, I think you can come up with a sermon just by looking at a piece of construction paper! LOL! This is your calling! God has definitely put a right now Rhema Word in your gut for every situation and for every season. I got busy and wasn’t able to look at this until today, but today was the day I needed it! God’s so awesome! Thank for always enlightening us. Oh, and btw, that tree is the bomb.com! I could ignore ANY amount of boxes for that end result! WOW! Absolutely stunning! Love you as well. May you have a beautiful Thanksgiving, Glorious and Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year! Reply Evangela Pringles on November 29, 2016 at 3:24 pm Thank you Dr. Dee Dee for the encouragement. Focusing on the promise and not the process has been so difficult as if late. My sister and I received custody of our 3 biological nephews 6 years ago. My sister adopted the boys 4 years ago. We are dealing with serious behavioral issues that demonic based. Most days we are so stressed out….We have both lost our jobs and are having trouble finding new jobs. We need a new house. It was necessary to move our mother into the home with us. So we are stressed. But your message really encouraged me. It was just what I needed to hear!
