Ever had one of those days where you feel like crying and really can’t tap into why? Every now and then those of us who are usually strong for everyone else have moments where our feelings and emotions get the best of us. I’m learning to practice gratitude during these difficult moments. The more I focus on how good God is the less time I spend pondering things that are beyond my control. “Greater is HE that is in me, than he that is in the world.” Have a fantastic Friday. Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved .❤️
As I write this, my eyes are filled with tears. This week I have been reminded that even though I grow weary with waiting, God always shows up! Several months ago I began reading the Prayer of Jabez. As I focused on intentionally asking God to enlarge certain areas of my life it became very clear that in order for this to happen I needed to grow. I had to focus more on what I was doing and less on what other people were doing. It’s NOT my job to please other people or allow their dysfunction to disrupt my life. Loving people from a distance is becoming a practice for me. I can love you and keep my peace. God knows what I want and HE is well aware of what I need. His timing is the catch! Things won’t always happen when I want them to but if I remain FAITHFUL or the little things, HE will show up! I am now able to see the good in every experience, failure, and letdown. I needed to be reminded of who God is and how HE can place me in situations that I could have never imagined. Don’t grow weary in well doing, wait on God. HE’s ALWAYS on time! Happy Saturday. Be safe, be blessed, and know that I love you! ❤️
Despite the enemy’s attempt to destroy you, you’ve prevailed. Take comfort in knowing that HE has a plan for your life. Difficult times will come, and yes they will go. But always know that the same God that brought you to it, is the same God that will get you through it. Joy does come in the morning. Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved! ❤️
As I wake this Sunday morning in my spirit there’s a song, “Turning Around For Me”, by Vashawn Mitchell. The way I used to deal with things that bother me is much different these days. It’s so funny, you can be having the best day, feel good, look good, and in a split second something changes the forecast of your day. But know this, no matter what you are going through, it’s turning around for YOU. You are NOT alone in your struggle whatever it may be. Don’t let that struggle dictate your day. Acknowledge it, adjust your position, and let it go. If God brings you to it, HE will bring you through it. God is just that GOOD! Be safe, be blessed, and know that I love you. ❤️
Good morning! It’s testy Tuesday and trust me you WILL be tested! Don’t fall prey to the devil and his messengers. God has so much more in store for your life, trust HIM! Stand firm on who and what HE has created you to be. Have a great day and be encouraged. HE never takes us to a place HE’s not willing to keep us. Be safe, be blessed, and know that I love you. ❤️
Just finished watching a message from #TheLoveLetter series by Bishop T.D. Jakes. What a revelatory moment! Sometimes you have to suffer and labor a while before you are able to pass the test. But in the meanwhile, allow love to lead. Watching, fighting, praying, and most of all working to lead in LOVE. Sometimes that will mean long suffering. Just know that it won’t be in vain and that just like you see the truth in others actions, so does God. Love anyway……Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved.
It’s Monday, a new day, a fresh start! Rest your mind in knowing yesterday is gone, tomorrow is not promised, and all you have is today, this hour, and this moment. Don’t waste time worrying about things and people that don’t matter. God has placed you in a position to rise above any and everything that comes your way. Stop thinking that people owe you something. They don’t owe you, you owe it to yourself! Be good to you! Have a marvelous Monday and know that you are loved! Be safe, be blessed.
Sitting in worship this morning I was reminded that “when God chooses you, you don’t get to choose your assignment”. Dr. Kneeland Brown also said that God will always provide a plan for you to do the work! This sermon couldn’t have come at a better time. I needed to be reminded that even though I get frustrated with the process, I can’t abandon God’s assignment. There will always be valley situations and frustrating times. It’s in those moments that I have to remain focused on What God has called ME to do. No longer can I allow my flesh and outside factors to interrupt HIS assignment. As hard as it is some days to leave my flesh behind, I will press forward. God is always willing to keep those that want to be kept. I desire to be kept! Thank you Dr. Brown for that reminder. It was right on time! Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved! Happy Sunday!
“Frustration is a sign of investment. When you invest in something you have an expectation. Frustration is when disappointment goes in. Anytime you change the game, they get frustrated. Frustration unresolved will always lead to failure. Some of the greatest tests you’ll have is winning!”~TD Jakes
