Exposure is everything to me. So I have committed to taking individuals with me everywhere I go to show them that more is possible. If you do not know it is obtainable sometimes you won’t even believe for it. This is why testimonies are so empowering. If you have been reading these blogs you know that I always try to share one of my life episodes. Well about a month ago I attended the Rising Conference held by my friend Donna Pisani. She always does an optimum display of heaven on earth at her conferences. The worship is great, the attention grabbing artistry is phenomenal, and of course the Word is always on point. I love when people pay attention to detail and she does this so well. Since I know this conference is going to be an enriching experience every year, I am always eager to invite others to be a part. So I gathered a few ladies from the ministry and invited them to stay with me at a very nice hotel in downtown DC. My home is about forty minutes from the event location, so it was no need to bolt back from home so early when we could just stay in the area to enjoy the Friday night session and early Saturday sessions.
Since it was just for one night let’s stack the rooms! In my room I had my daughter-in-law and another young lady. We all were very hungry when we arrived at the hotel to get dressed to attend the Friday night meeting. It was too late to order room service so I just started to get dressed with the hope of grabbing something from the gift shop. From another room, I hear, “Dr. DeeDee would you like some gummy bears? They have some here in the room.” “Girl, no. Those things probably cost about $50”, is my response. If I could sketch the priceless depiction of the girl’s face who was so kindly offering these gummy bears I would. It was like she was frozen in time. When I looked at her I asked, “Why are you looking that way?” She opened her hand and it was full of gummy bears. LOL! You can’t take some people anywhere! No, I am not talking about a little child. This is a twenty-nine year old, grown, unexposed woman! Lol! I’m laughing because it was hilarious and you are probably saying, “What is so hilarious?” In this very commiserative voice she said, “I thought it was free.” Free? We live in America where nothing is free! She felt so bad and stated that the hotels she have stayed in only have free coffee so she had no idea about the sensor that automatically charges you once food is moved from their neat displays in these hotels. She tried to pay me for the gummy bears. “No way, keep your money. I invited you here and my card has an open tab.”
God wants us to be exposed to more so we can know that whatever we want in life it is possible for us.
I could dance right here because I know where I am going with this. First, you don’t know it all and God wants us to be exposed to more so we can know that whatever we want in life it is possible for us. If you don’t have someone in your life to show you that more is a possibility, go sit in a store with magazines and expose yourself until management tells you to leave. Stop waiting for help and help yourself! Secondly, God showed me that Jesus paid the ultimate price with his life and gave us an open tab. Some people will never ameliorate from the benefits that are afforded to us through the Word because they don’t know it’s been paid for. What do you want? There’s an open tab! Healing, peace, deliverance, joy, prosperity, marriage, kids, car, or house – whatever it is, start taking advantage of the open tab today. Somebody else is covering the bill.
I came that they may have and enjoy life,
and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).
Thanks Dr. Dee-Dee. Good message. So encouraging. ❤️
Hey Dr DeeDee
This is so true!! Being exposed is good, I have learned so much by getting out of my comfort zone!!
Powerful! Thank you Jesus for the open tab!
This was good to me….lol! I love the way you INVEST in Us Dr. Dee Dee. I have MUCH LOVE for you!
Dr Deedee will you host GGG again? I attended all and felt the same about your conferences as you did about the one you mentioned. Attending your conference blessed me so much the first time I came along the next time I bought 20 women with me from Texas! Hope you will host again so I can glean! Appreciate all you do for the kingdom!
Thank you, Dr. DeeDee,
I laughed at this moment you guys had…laughing with not at. Exposure is a must for all of us and it’s all good. God’s blessings for all of us are far reaching!! I’m going after them and bringing along as many as I can. There is so much more to see and learn. Let’s go!!
Thanks for the boost!!
LOL I agree there is so much more!
Thank you for exposing me to the God-kind of family life!
Thank You for letting me!
Thank you Dr. DeeDee this is very inspriring. I am so sharing this with my daughters.
Yes exposure is good, people have learn how to get out of there comfort zone!!
Open tab I love it😘😘
That’s what’s up!!!! Love it!!! Blessed to be a blessing. Thanks for being an awesome example!
That word was awesome and it was for me this morning!!! Thank you FATHER….for the open tab!
Dr. Dee Dee thank you so much for this Word. It’s just what I needed to get my week started. I will remember to use my Open Tab!
Wow!.. Dr. Dee Dee as always so on point! God Bless You!!… I mean, God really blessed YOU so that YOU could that blessing, that beacon of light for others. So many of us never dream or have had bigger aspirations because we’ve been taught that those things aren’t for us, they are for ‘other’ people. But who are the ‘other’ people?? I have to begin to believe and stretch my faith for MORE, not because I’m greedy, but because God said that we are to have it more abundantly. People tend to say oh you trying to be something that you’re not? But what am I NOT? Am I NOT God’s pretty little girl? Am I NOT the apple of his eye? Keep doing what you’re doing for the kingdom! Love you Dr. Dee Dee
I love this Rachael. Who are the other people and why them. We are the other people!
Thanks Dr Dee Dee!
I hope the $50 gummy bears were fresh. Lol Those bears should have been served on fine china with nice silver wear. Lol Funny, I usually tease my cousin when we travel that im going to eat and drink everything in the room because its on her card.
You know hotels just dust off those items and leave them there for months. Lol Yes, exposure is certainly life changing and growth provoking. My church, family, friends and the military have exposed me to a great deal. I truly appreciate and strive for better because of what I’ve been exposed to in life.
God Bless you Pastor Deedee!! Thank you for the Word.
Thank you so much for that word….
OMG, I’m in tears ,I believe Father that all thing are Possible to Him That Believe, Thank You Dr.Deedee , You ‘re trully heaven sent!!! Goo countiual Bless Upon You All
🙂 Thank You Terri!
AWESOME!!! Thanks for the reminder that I have an open tab with Jesus.
Dr. Freeman , I needed to see and receive this message. So on point with my life at this moment!!!
Don’t ever let this go!
Yes, being exposed to different things in life is one of the best things my family did for me. I have and continue to do this for my son.
Thats awesome Jasmine!
Thanks for sharing.
Love it Pas. Dee Dee. Thanks for sharing.
So thankful for you. I receive. Thank you!
Thank God for an open tab and the ability to expose myself to more. It is definitely time to step out of my comfort zone and expose myself to all that God has made available to me. I receive the word. Thanks Dr. Dee Dee!
AWESOME, Dr. DeeDee!!! The Word you shared was rich, seasonal and timely. To God be all the glory! Much love, Ma Carrie
Good morning Dr.Dee Dee!Thanks for this message,I work at a hotel,And I’ve had to step out of my comfort zone!lol😊
You should totally understand open tab.
Oh yes!! That just blessed the core of my soul!! Thank you Dr Dee Dee!!
Thank you Dr. Dee.Dee, Wow!, this is so true. I walked in the church on yesterday and the teacher was playing “No limits , No boundaries , I see increase all around me,” by Israel and New breed. My pastor was in full praise. The end of the song says “Take the limits off…….. Enlarge my territory.” Exposure indeed removes the limits we put on ourselves and I can testify to that. I was a little ghetto girl sent to school one and a half hours away. The high school kids were driving BMW’s, Corvettes, Mercedes and you name it. My mom did not have a car and having a bus pass was a big deal to me. Did my paradigm? Of course it did! If you can see it in the minds eye you can do it. The scripture says in Proverbs 29:18a ” where there is no vision, the people perish.” I love how you are sowing into the lives of others so they can be exposed and explore greater possibilities in life. What a great ministering tool!
I looking for that song now! LOL thanks for the added information to keep me motivated.
Thank You Dietra!
Dr. Deedee this Good WORDS are on point, because this Morning meditation for me was Abundantly life and living for me🙌🏿3rd JOHN:2 and JOHN 10:10 🙌🏿💃🏿💃🏿Abundantly for ME that what GOD said to me💃🏿💃🏿💃🏿💃🏿💃🏿💃🏿💃🏿💃🏿🙌🏿🙋🏾thank you Dr. DeeDee for your obedience I pray you be blessed 100 folds blessing for sharing these words❤️
Thank You Ruby! I receive!
Love your posts, Dr. Dee Dee! I have never heard anyone talk about the abundant life being an open tab, but that is an amazing analogy. Now, that will preach! God bless!
I so love this! In our community I think this is a major hindrance, not just in life but the church! We get stuck in doing ministry the same way and it becomes antiquated and irrelevant because we trying to do the same thing the same way with no exposure to better ways to do things. And this definitely stunts us individually because lets face it most folks exposure is limited to their little corner of the world, which is why there is no progress! Thank you for exposing me to the fact that I am a Gods Glamorous Girl& Its cool to be Fierce, Fly, & Saved ,Desiring the good life and then going after it fearlessly With everything Gods given me.
Thank you Dr. Dee Dee,
For the refreshingly great reminder! Just what I needed to read to stir up my joy!
Thank you so much Dr.Dee Dee so enlightening. Sending love from California
I Receive it too!
Thank you Dr Dee Dee. That was very inspiring.I thank Father that he has afforded me the opportunity to hear you minister the Word.You are a blessing to me.
Very powerful and motivational statement. I can’t wait to enjoy my opened tab !!!!!!😀😀 Thank you woman of GOD Dr DeeDee!!!!
Thanks for exposing me to the word “ameliorate.” Never heard it before but looked it up to know that it means to improve or make better. Thanks so much. I’ve always needed to expand my vocabulary.
LOL writing these make me expand mine’s.
I love it. So well said. I’ve been telling myself that I deserve more but im always putting other people before myself. Now I’m going to open up the tab and go for what I want. I trust God and I can have more. Public Library here I come..lol. The library is a place of peace for me. I get my study on and I throw myself into the Word.
lol i love it!
Wonderful analogy! I have been exposed to so much under your wonderful ministry!!
This is awesome Michele!
Wow, Dr. DeeDee!! My Pastor just preached on a similar top a week ago. I believed and received it then and I believe and receive it now-In Jesus Name!!!
Thank You Father God for the open tab!
I love my Mondays Dr. DeeDee. A good word to start the week! AWESOME
Yes!!!!!! I love it! I love that you see life lessons in everything! I’m so grateful for our connection!!!!
o my goodness what a Word! I embrace this O and I see many open tabs already paid in full i am on overflow. Thank you Dr DeeDee..
WOOOO I receive that too!
Dr. Dee Dee thank you for being so real with us. You don’t sugar coat situations you expose them and show us how to do life. Thank you for your continuous examples of how we can live a virtuous life.
Bravo Dr. DeeDee! This was for ME!
Dr. DeeDee, That was so good, I really enjoyed that, it really encouraged me.
Thanks for sharing
Thank you for pushing me to believe for more. I love how my Pastor Tyon Horne and First Lady Tynika Horne always encourage us to be exposed to more. They invite us to everything that will show us faith and manifestation on a large scale. I thank God for my spiritual connections, it has caused me to increase in every area of my life. After reading this blogged I’m charged to believe even greater is possible. Thank you
I love it! You have great pastors!
Thank you Dr. Dee Dee! I have been utilizing my open tab but probably not to its full potential. I sometimes feel guilty because of my abundance and overflow. However, I know how to bless others with it.
Great word and very inspiring.
You don’t ever have to feel guilty. God has called us to increase so enjoy!
Good groceries Dr. Dee Dee!!
Wow, this blog was so awesome and inspiring, Dr. DeeDee! It made me think about what I want in life that I can just freely ask for because there’s an open tab. There are so many things, but the one thing I thought about is that God would allow me to cross paths with the people who are ready to receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior! I’m so excited about winning souls, and I know there are many people who are ready! The abundant life for me is to lead an abundance of souls to Christ, in addition to all the other stuff I want😀. Thank you for this blog!
Yes and you are doing an awesome job at it too! I pray that others catch your heart!
I am thanking God for the open tab right now thank you for an enlighting word Dr. DeeDee.
This was good and interesting. I enjoyed this.
Thank you so much Dr. DeeDee ! You are such an inspiration. Your blogs / messages are enabling me to clearly understand that ” I don’t know it all” Jesus does and He has it all covered !
Yes He does!
I needed a reminder, thank you always for the enlightenment.
Powerful!! Exposure is key thats why I am so excited about bringing Women from my church on June17th for the Summer Explosion of Infusion hosted by you!! Thank you for being a positive influence and sharing this blog on exposure this was on time!!
Thank You Rico!

I LOVE this message!! And it’s so true!!!! Surround yourself with people who will teach, inspire & take you to higher levels!!! It’s a confidence booster! And when you know better, you do better. Thanks for sharing!!!
Love this one too LOL!
As I read this tonight before going to bed, this article truly blessed me. Thank you for transparency and your ministry. God bless you!
Thank You for reading!
OMG, this was really good and on point. I had a girls ministry a few years ago and these were my sentiments exactly. I wanted them to have exposure so that they would know there were more than what they were surrounded with. On one occasion, we took them to spend a weekend at “The Best” hotel in our historical district. They were taught table etiquette prior to that weekend. They got the opportunity to wear a nice dress and had a formal dinner experience at a very nice restaurant. I agree Dr. Dee Dee, we have to be exposed to more in order to know there is more.God told Abram to “look around from where he was” in every direction and as far as he could see he would bless him and his descendants. It’s ours, but we have to have the ability to see it. To whom much is given, much is required so for those who can see, let’s reach back and expose others. I was blessed by this. It was a clarion call for us all.
Girl you are preaching good! This is my language!
A message that I really needed to read. Time to get exposed 💜
Thanks for sharing, this was insightful.
Great message very inspiring💜 Thank you for sharing. I look forward to your weekly blog. God bless you☺️
This was just what I needed to read this morning. This is my fav blog so far. 💜💜💜
I love it!
Thank you Dr. DeeDee! A very timely reminder to get out of my comfort zone and expose myself to far greater! Powerful!!! Praising God! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾💖😀
Love the open tab good word. Thanks Dr. DD
Thanks Dr Dee Dee for this awesome message. This message is so on time as I sit here in the hospital confessing healing….. It’s an open tab. Thank you Jesus!!!!!
Amen! I am in agreement with you!
Thank you Jesus! It’s moments like these that teaches the little things that are so often overlooked or missed altogether. Thank you Dr. Dee Dee for helping people, everywhere, by showing and teaching us how to live life. People are quick to tell others how to do something…”Oh, to solve this problem, you just need to add this, subtract this part, take that answer and divide by this, and then multiply by that”. Yes, that person was told how to solve the problem, but if that person doesn’t know how to add, how to subtract, how to multiply or how to divide, you have not taught them anything. They are still no better off than before, and remain in a failing position. Thank you Dr. Dee Dee for teaching us the “How To (s)” of life.
That was good GIGI!
Love this. I needed to hear this.
Awesome blog Dr. DeeDee, thank you for all you do to grow us in the Word of God….love you dearly xoxoxoxoxo
I am laughing because I am the greedy one, who would’ve been eating the gummy bears too and after finding out how much they cost trying to tape the bag back up!LOL
My parents made it a point to expose my brother and I to “more” as children and even into adulthood. Whether it was restaurants,exotic vacations,hotel’s,shopping and even first class seating on our flights(every now and then). My mom would say it was because she wanted to open our eyes to all that Holy Spirit has for us, and to be able to experience life at all capacities and to broaden our minds. However my dad would say it was because they didn’t want us to embarrass them in public and so we would know that the dish brought to the table with water, lemon and doily was to rinse our fingers not drink. lol Thanks for reminding me “I don’t know it all”
LOL!!!!! Not tape the bag back
So needed to read this experience today. My daughter& are are BELIEVING GOD for more. We are realizing daily ,how negligent we’ve been in our accessing what has already been made available. Open Tab!!!!
Thanks for yet again MAKING IT PLAIN and applicable.
Omgee- Dr.DeeDee! First time reading your blog which brought tears to my eyes. I thank you so much for this encouragement.
Thank You Kay for reading!
Thank you Pastor Dee Dee for reminded me of God’s love for me.
Encouraging … First Lady Dee-Dee Freeman.
This is good!
Thanks Dr.Deedee exposure is everything. This is how we learn.
Awesome! I’m big on exposure and many times have been talked about for what I like and where I see myself going. Thank for confirming in my spirit.
YOU’RE SO AMAZING! This message is just what I needed! Had a break from patients and was going online to pay for infusion. When I googled Dr. DeeDee your blog came up first. God always gives you what you need and on time. You piggy backed on Pastor Kevin’s message from Sunday that I’ve been mediating on for past couples of days. He stated “Comfort Zones have killed many of DREAMS” and exposure is key. Thank You for continuing to EXPOSE me to live abundantly in every area of my life with the word of GOD and your lifestyle.
Time for me to shake, rattle and roll. I’ve been exposed.
As I sit and ponder about the Open Tab Jesus has paid for me. And, on top of that He has given great exposure agents like you Dr Deedee. To let us know there is more to Life. I’m reminded of a documentary I just watched this past weekend on Netflix titled The Beginning of Life, very interesting, thought provoking film. But, there was one part that absolutely broke me. They showed a young girl from India, she could’ve been no more than 12, caring for her infant sister and toddler brother, no parents just them living in a tin shack. Disheartening as that is, that is not what broke me. The caption translated in English said, what are your dreams? This 12 year old responded, I have no dreams. That went threw me… I felt guilty because God has blessed me so to be exposed to so much and have aspirations, dreams yet the passion and drive to move escapes me… I can’t get this young girl from India out of my head… to live with no dreams, no hope…broken. you will never know how much life(threw Jesus)you give to people that read these blogs and follow your ministry. I am grateful.
Thanks dr Dee Dee for reminding me that Jesus did it all so I can have it all “THE FINISHED WORK “
Amen Dr DeeDee
The world wants the believers to think there not supposed to be rich. But as a believer I want all that God has for me and every believer on this earth. Heaven has it all and we want it all as well. Thank you for what you’re doing. Be Blessed
Over the past few months my morning mantra has been in activated status.I am a living witness that as you SPEAK exactly what you want from, of and through God and COMPLETELY BELIEVE those things/petitions/requests will be fulfilled. Doors, windows, sky lifts hace been opened in my life and I am honored that God is trusting me with treasures. Thank you for sharing with sych graciousness and authenticity! I appreciate your “REAL”ness. Always Loving, Shante
Awesome. Thank you DR. DeeDee.
Amen, this was an amazing message!
Thanks for sharing your story with us and for being so transparent.
Wow, Dr. Dee Dee,
That was powerful. I wish my daughter would read it, but satan has such a hold on her, she wants to hear nothing about God 😩. I continue to pray. Thank you so much for the word.
WOW!!! Another good one. “Start taking advantage of the open tab” It’s amazing how much God has done for us and we don’t even apply it to our lives..
Wow that really blessed me and also showed me I need to expose myself to more because I deserve it! Thank you Dr. DeDe I love your blog
Wow!! I love this Word!!
