How Unqualified Are You?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on How Unqualified Are You?

The world is full of people in positions they are totally unqualified for.


Well, that is to the untrained eye.


You see God enjoys using people who most of us would consider unqualified. Let’s unpack this a bit, shall we?


When God steps in and grabs ahold of people who would identify as unqualified we witness such greatness.


God is great, powerful, wise, strong, capable, and all-knowing. He knows our beginning and our end all while He knits us together in our mother’s womb.


When Jesus takes the wheel our weakness no longer limit us because God works through those. We see that indeed nothing is impossible with God. We become freed from worldly beliefs, excessive people pleasing, limited mindset’s, corporate thinking, and all of our worldly limitations. We become freed from the shame of our past, failures, embarrassments and guilt because God can and will use all of that to help others in their life right where they are! What a beautiful thing this is!


I want to talk to you ladies today about feeling unqualified. If you noticed I didn’t say being unqualified I said feeling unqualified. There is a difference, a big one I believe.


According to Google dictionary being means existence, reality, actuality.


Feeling means an emotional state or reaction.


Just because we feel a certain way doesn’t mean it’s reality or actuality.


Unqualified means:

  1. Not officially recognized as a practitioner of a particular profession or activity through having satisfied the relevant conditions or requirements.
  2. Not competent or sufficiently knowledgeable to do something.


So you may not be officially recognized as far as worldly standards go but God is far greater. He is the Alpha and the Omega the beginning and the end.


Therefore when He calls us into something the worldly definition of qualified no longer matters. It is obsolete. What God has put together no man can stop. That my friends is a promise we can stand on.


Not feeling qualified isn’t the same as being unqualified. When God leads you into something know that He has qualified you for that.


Does this mean it’ll be easy for you? No, the truth is it won’t always be easy. But when God is on your side you already know you are going to make it.


Philippians 1:6 tells us, “I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”


So what can you do when you are feeling unqualified?


Go back to who God says you are in scripture. Look for specific scripture where God talks about how He’s created you, given each specific gifts, created a plan for you, and has plans to prosper you and not to harm you. If you need assistance getting started you can grab a free list of scripture I’ve compiled by clicking here. (no opt-in required)



Personalize the scripture when possible. Add in your name and repeat these to yourself randomly throughout your day. Bonus Tip: Set them as reminders on your phone so you can read them more often to help your subconscious absorb them as truth. Read More→


Who Are You Chasing?

Regina Baker, Letting Go to Let God bloggerIt feels so good to be able to let others know that sometimes, our journeys can be challenging too. I woke up feeling defeated. For some time now, I’ve been feeling like something is missing and I just can’t seem to be able to put my finger on it. It’s kind of like being in quick-sand at a stand-still, kind of weird huh? And although I haven’t seen the “light,” during this process, I know without a shadow of doubt, it’s temporary. Why?

Who Are You Chasing? by Regina BakerBecause I know that my Father in Heaven has not chosen this way of “feeling” for me or you. I also know that we don’t wrestle against flesh and blood however, it’s the principalities of darkness that attempt to drown out peace, patience, faith, endurance, trust and joy. The amazing thing about feeling defeated is that God consistently reminds me that HE never chose that way of life for any of us.

In Jeremiah 29:11, He specifically states: For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Refreshing reminder! Don’t you just love it when the Holy Spirit brings back to your remembrance the Word in all its definite truth? I was also reminded of this: Read More→

The Joy in Letting Go

Posted by: | Comments (8)

doorwayMay the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. — Romans 15:13

Not knowing what the outcome would be concerning my husband, even then my faith was unwavering. I honestly don’t remember a time when I wasn’t praying or reading my bible during his illness. If there is one thing I’ve learned about the journey of caring for a loved one as they slowly drift way is, if you’ve never been through it, you can’t possibly witness (i.e., feel) the experience. It’s how you go through the process that determines the outcome.

Although I had an abundance of support from family and friends, I often times felt alone until… that day — the day of choosing.

I will never forget God’s voice gently speaking to me, “You have two choices, you can think about death the way the world does or you can choose Me.” I immediately said, “Lord, I choose You!”

And, with that choice came a peace that surpasseth ALL worldly understanding. There is amazing joy, even in the midst of trials and tribulations that you get to experience when you “let go and let God.” When I “made the choice”, I was also blessed with a roadmap. I began to understand that my feelings had nothing to do with God’s will and my feelings had nothing to do with Ruben’s destiny. I literally had to let go in order to gain the experience that God desired me to have. Ruben was saved, He loved the Lord more than anything else in the world and he knew his destination, it was me who needed to catch up.

As I continued to read the bible, it was as though the words would come to life for me with an understanding that only the Holy Spirit could give. Because I surrendered to God’s will, He made the crooked (i.e., uneasy) ways straight for me. He literally took care of me. I trusted Him more and more therefore, every day was a day of complete faith. Read More→

If there’s one thing I could share about what I’ve learned in reading the scriptures of the Bible, is to not just read them but to also live by them, daily. I will never forget my first encounter with the Holy Spirit. My husband and I were diligently attending bible study, prayer meetings and personal study time. I was eager to learn however, I wanted a spirit to Spirit relationship because most of what I remember hearing Ministers talk a lot about was “the Holy Spirit” is your teacher, your guide and your confidant. I remembered thinking, well if that’s true, that’s who I choose to learn from.

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be
opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh
findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” — Matthew 7:7-8

Therefore, if you will, picture this, me having what seemed to appear as loud vocal conversations with no one in the room except me. LOL! I can laugh at it now but, it wasn’t very funny at the time. I was hungry and I needed to be fed quickly! As I would read the scriptures, I would ask the Holy Spirit to give me the understanding that He desired I receive. I informed Him that I wanted to know Him and I felt that the only way I would sincerely understand the Bible was if He taught me – and He did.

According to Proverbs 29:18 it reads: “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

I also remembered hearing that the reason people failed so much was because we lacked vision. And while that can be a hard pill to swallow, I actually understood it because I’m a “visual” person. I didn’t want to fail  because I lacked vision! No way! As long as I can remember, I’ve always “pictured” my thoughts and desires. I easily relate to story-telling too because, I picture the entire story as its being told. Imagine closing your eyes and a thought comes to mind, can you picture the thought?

Grateful that my prayers were answered, not only was I granted a picture, I understood the Bible with so much clarity! But, remember, we were attending bible study and prayer meetings with other people. There would be times that people would say things that didn’t make sense to me and if I asked a question, sometimes I didn’t understand the answers. I would ask my husband why are some of the people saying, I should know this or you should be speaking in a different prayer language and try this or try that. It was confusing and becoming quite overwhelming. My husband would tell me to pray about it, “seek the Lord.” Fortunately, I would pray about it and at God’s appointed time, I would always receive revelation (understanding) that only He could do.
