Proverbs 18:16 "A man’s gifts makes room for him and brings before great men."

"The wealthiest places on earth are the cemeteries. In them lies treasures not manifested."-Margo/Joel Osteen

Good Evening,

The other day while on the phone with one of very best friends, I took a minute to encourage, lift her up, and motivate her to make sure she never give up hope! To ensure that she would continually be focused on the plan (hope) that God has for her life. See I know that when it seems as if it is taking forever to see something manifest, we can easily be discouraged, or dissuaded in what God has spoken. Well as I was speaking something came out of my mouth that I KNOW wasn’t from me (haha I had never even thought on that level). I said, "If you die with that hope(plan) still in you, you won’t even be able to REST IN PEACE." When I said it, I had to pause for a moment, and my friend did the same…and immediately we both knew that was revelation from above right there.

The scripture tells us that though the flesh dies, the spirit lives forever. It’s almost as if there is no way to escape the word of God for your life. He is so dedicated to seeing us become who He destined us to be that He bound Himself by His word saying, "it shall not return to Him void (producing any effect, useless), but it shall accomplish that which I please and PURPOSE, and it shall prosper (break out, come mightily, go over, be profitable) in the thing for which I sent it." For those who read my blog consistently yall know my mantra: "
It would be a shame to have lived this life and never become who God destined you to be." It’s as if you were never born. So you see why the owner who gave the servants talents (in Matthew 25) was so upset with the servant who "buried" his talent and never put it to use? The gifts/talents that the Father has given us is without repentance (regret), and He intends for us to take them, and grow to higher levels with them. For instance, if you can sing, nurture that gift, learn all about it (grow it). Take vocal lessons to strengthen the gift to get all you can out of it. Sing all the time (multiply the gift). Never take it for granted by misusing it, or abusing (such as smoking, or never exercising it). The gift will make room for you and bring you before great men (people in influential positions, or high authority)…think of the likes of Jennifer Hudson or John Legend, or the likes of President Obama or Oprah Winfrey.

Don’t die with the gift still in you! It was given to you to bless someone’s life whether it’s one person or millions, you are responsible for the gift/talent given to you. Now bless God today (by using your gift).

So the question is: When you die will you rest in peace?




A man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men. (Proverbs 18:16 AMP)




“Hatred stirs up contentions, but love covers all transgressions.”-Proverbs 10:12 (AMP)



Good morning everyone! I just wanted to take a moment and share with you all today the importance of understanding and knowing what God has gifted you (as women) with in the form of a dowry!

What is a dowry you may ask? Well a dowry is defined as: the money, goods, or estate that a WIFE brings to her husband at marriage.

Now as for me, I had no idea what the word meant until one day while in prayer The Lord said to me: ” I have given you a dowry fit for a king.” I was frantically searching for the dictionary to get the meaning of the word and the above is what I found. Imagine how ecstatic I was. Just thinking about the fact of how blessed physically I would be by the time I met my husband. I mean The Lord has blessed me with a nice home, car, job etc so hey I would definitely be a great addition to a man. And yet that was not what God was speaking about. See we must remember that our FATHER is Spirit, therefore it’s the spirit(ours) that HE is speaking to in this case. What He let me know is that I have been designed with a specific set of gifts/talents that will enhance the one He created me to help.

Let me say it this way…”So what do we know about a woman (wife)-she is a suitable(appropriate, fitting, becoming) helper for her mate. It’s as if she is tailored made for him. Not just tailored made for any guy, but THE ONE she’s made for specifically. I know a lot of people don’t believe that there is one person for everyone (mainly because it makes it seem impossible to end up with them but that’s only because we don’t want to involve the MATCHMAKER who knows where they are) but I believe there is. These things transcend emotions, it reaches to the depth of the woman. What she’s carrying in her “WELL” is there for him to drink from daily! He can trust it not to harm him but only elevate him.”

See a woman’s well should run deep! She must constantly keep fresh water in her well…and never let it dry up. The dowry given to her by God will NOT BE SUITABLE for any and every man. Which is why in some relationships you find that either he doesn’t understand you, abuses the gifts, or try to stifle them altogether. And at that the point the woman is restless, unengaged, and the water in the well is turning BITTER.

Ladies trust me you have been given a dowry from your FATHER to give to your husband! It is such a great dowry that the man you were chosen to help would do nothing to jeopardize it leaving him! He will draw “water” from it daily and will not look to drink from other wells. Understanding that when he does he has jeopardized his own FAVOR! So please take a moment and seek the FATHER and ask Him what does my dowry entail? And who is it for? Submit before Him and say I will not settle nor give my dowry to a man it’s not meant for because I know the power it possess and how it will bring glory to your name as my husband is elevated before you.

Ladies if you want to know the characteristics of the “king” God has for you, read Proverbs 31:1-9! This does not mean that he is perfect…but you were made to fit him perfectly.

Be blessed-Margo




There is a way that seems right to a man and appears straight before him, but at the end of it is the way of death.-Proverbs 14:12

Fear will make you divert from the plan of God and start doing things in your own intelligence. -Yolonda Thomas

Fear is not real it is an illusion of something that night happen!

I really need people to understand this scripture. Because when we are saved through Christ, we become like Him. Made in His image (restored to Gods original intent before the fall) when we SPEAK, our words have power! Jesus tells us how important what comes out of mouth is in Matthew 12! So read this scripture meditate on it, read Matthew 12, and ask the Lord to help you speak life at all times!

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life]. (Proverbs 18:21 AMP)
