Is your fruit edible?

fruit-of-the-spirit-tree11

Only rodents eat fruit that’s not good for human consumption. If you find yourself continuously in a position surrounded by rats, realize they wouldn’t keep coming if there wasn’t anything for them to eat. Every tree shall be known by it’s fruits. In order to be TRANSFORMED you must first be RESTORED. Restoration, Transformation.

Happy Holidays Family!

Just wanted to share some quick words with you all for the holidays. I’ve been away from the blog for a month or so due to some insane circumstances that I will definitely update you all on shortly, but I wanted to make sure I share something before we all get lost in the holiday / New Year shuffle.

I have learned recently just how important it is to make sure that whatever gifts God gives you? They do not belong to you, they belong to Him. Sometimes when we take our gifts into our own hands and do what we “think” is the best thing for them, really isn’t at the end of the day. Sometimes doing things our way only slows down or hinders the growth of the original design. I know that I need to always remember that my way is not always God’s way. I think most of us at one time or another just become impatient because we want things in a hurry so sometimes we may accept the counterfeit blessing which normally surfaces before the actual.

I also have been reminded that you have got to test the fruit of the tree before you partake and declare it good for food. Fam, people can say anything. At the end of the day, what is important is what they do and the true fruit of a person, business, organization, etc. is evident in the consistent fruit it bears. For example, a celebrity that gives away toys at Christmas right before tax season doesn’t qualify them as a giving person if they do nothing all year round. A person can say they stand for something but if in all actuality their actions are not consistent with that claim? It’s not real.

Be kind, be patient, be humble, but most of all be consistent. From my family to yours, happy holidays and I wish you all a healthy & prosperous New Year!  -QTP

Christian Gospel inspired Hip Hop is a hard market to turn heads. People walk past artists rhyming for the most high in city centres without batting an eyelid or even dropping a dime in the basket. If it’s not DMX on the mic, most hip hop heads don’t wanna know. Queen The Prophet wants to help change that. Under the guidance of the Wu-Tang Clan &…

What Defines YOU? by @queentheprophet

cp_slide

What defines you? 

Seems like a simple question, right? Normally when people are asked this question they begin to start listing all of the things in their lives that are important to them (i.e. being a mother or father, their job, their heritage, etc.). Generally those answers make sense. Those answers though are very generic. The reason why they’re generic is because you are first yourself  before you are any of those things. Your spirit, your soul who you are in all of your nakedness, the you that you are when you are alone, the parts of you that think inside your own head, the emotions you feel, the pains and joys you carry, the characteristics and unique traits that define your personality, and who you are when it’s just you and God. Before you can be any of those other things, you are first yourself and if those other things no longer existed, you would still be.

i-am-who-i-chose-to-become1

In life, we often times get too caught up in things or what our life has become so much so that we forget who we are and I know plenty of people (myself included at times in my own life) that when the “things” that define us are gone? We no longer know who we are. This doesn’t mean that when terrible things happen we aren’t allowed to be sad, depressed (for a period of time), or hurt. There are times though that when people forget who and what they truly are entirely that when something terrible happens, they never come back from the place of being hurt, sad, or depressed. Did you know that men at retirement age have one of the highest rate/risk of suicide? Have you ever met a person that was once wealthy or famous and became sick, disabled, injured, or aged out of their fame or money? Have you ever met a man or woman unable to recover after a divorce? Have you ever met a parent unable to move on with their life after loosing a child? I personally know many of all of these people and at one point in time was one of them myself.

suffering-is-optional

Pain is inevitable, the duration of your suffering is optional. You absolutely have the power to chose the outcome of many situations in your life. You may not be able to predict or control all of the circumstances that you will encounter but your response to them is absolutely within your control. Do you react in faith or do you react in fear? Do you use hope to cope or do you allow a terrible thing to knock you off your mark for the rest of your life? The truth of the matter is one day we will all give account to God for ourselves. Being a mother, father, sister, brother, movie star, rapper, football player, lawyer, doctor, minister, teacher, etc all means nothing on the day you stand before the throne. On that day we will each give account for ourselves and we don’t get to bring other people with us. But with that individuality also comes the individual unconditional love God has for each and everyone of us. He loves all of his creations and He absolutely is willing and capable of healing any pain you feel or turning around any circumstance you face. Many times though, He is not used for the cornerstone of the definition of ourselves and He is used like an emergency substitute in a football game when the quarterback gets injured or He gets used as the last resort genie in a bottle after a tragedy and then gets blamed for everything not going the way that we think it should ideally go.

tumblr_m949uuTjNx1r2r0koo1_1280

Your status is not your identity and neither is your struggle. If you allow those things to define who and what you are then when those things no longer exist, what is left of you? Do not let society fool you into believing that you need certain material things or social status to be happy or valuable. You are a valuable being not because QTP said so, but because God said so. Every life is a gift, even a difficult one. We are entitled to nothing. Everything we have is on borrowed time and is a gift. Each gift does not come with a required time table, meaning the gift can be for a moment or for a life time. Even if a gift is for a moment, be thankful for the moment no matter if it was a single moment or a million moments and do not let a struggle or loss of a gift then become the defining factor of your life. If you still have a life? You still have a reason to live it.

You may not want to hear this, but sometimes we have to lose everything to figure out when we thought we had everything, we really didn’t have anything, and then when we lost what we thought was everything is exactly where we found something that ended up being everything that we ever needed.

Setbacks & Set-ups by @queentheprophet

480688960197114261_7TKtFguI_c

It’s been a minuet since I’ve blogged one of my infamous rants but honestly it’s because believe it or not, I go through things too family. Behind the glitz, tweets, mix tapes, albums, interviews, blogs, music, shows and all of that (which honestly profits you nothing at the end of the day if your mind isn’t in tact), I too am a real person that has real struggles just like everyone else. I think one of the hardest things that we can all relate to is when things don’t go according to the way we plan them, especially when you put time, work, effort into a plan or you feel like you’ve finally come to a place in your life where you have a sense of comfort, schedule, or control and then the whole entire thing gets knocked out of whack. This is something that when you get taken for an unplanned roller coaster ride in life (i.e. a natural disaster, loosing a job, death in the family, etc.) it tends to feel like you are alone and it’s only happening to you. The truth is, it’s not. Every single one of us has had or will have these times or moments in life where it feels like  nothing’s happening at all or on the flip side, it’s all happening at once.

rise-300x300

One of the most important things to remember is that when these things happen? It’s a part of life. If things didn’t change, you would become complacent and you wouldn’t grow. Many of the wisdom’s you’ve accumulated in your own life are from what? Experience. We in our own human nature are selfish beings instinctively. Most of the time our first reaction to a crisis isn’t a celebration. How many times at the moment you hit a crisis you immediately were grateful? How many times have you looked back after a crisis was over and been grateful? Learning how to navigate life and see the wisdom and beauty in situations often requires us to die to our natural selfishness and step outside the situation and ourselves in order to see what’s actually happening.

1da29809fea2a2724d3636147f4b75e7

We are entitled to nothing. The truth of the matter is, you are not born with a guarantee that you will have any certain kind of life or luxury. Things like your health or your home can honestly be here one day and gone the next and somebody always, always, always has it worse then you do. We say that, but we don’t really get that because it’s very easy to forget that there are people in this world RIGHT NOW displaced from their homes, never had a home, don’t have anything to eat or don’t have any idea where their next meal is coming from, or are freezing to death sleeping under a bridge. Not one of us is guaranteed or entitled to anything simply because you had it, used to have it, want it, feel it belongs to you, or whatever else. Every single breath you take, moment you spend in good health or your right mind is a reason to be thankful. These are often the times people like to blame everything on God. Sometimes the very thing you’re angry at God for is the very thing He has a plan to flip in a 360, all in your favor but you’d first stop have to complaining to find it.

quotes about strength (4)

 

We have got to start changing the way we think. Everything you feed yourself (this includes the garbage you allow into your soul via your eyes on television, social media, the radio, etc) is going to shape and pre-determine the mindset that you’re going to have and the approach you’re going to take in a situation. It may look like a set-back, but nine times out of ten it’s a set-up for something far greater and better then you could have ever imagined. If you continue to feed yourself the ratchet buffet the world offers you then you’ll likely always be the egotistical whining baby in the corner blaming your entire life and whatever series of unfortunate events that have unfolded on everyone and everything else. I’m not saying bad things don’t happen, and I’m not saying uncontrollable tragedies don’t happen either. What I am saying is we can absolutely choose to allow those things to destroy us or we can use them to help ourselves and help others.

Be blessed –
