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! ❤️
Sometimes I get so anxious about what’s to come in my life and then I remember that I am NOT in control. Being the type of person that has been forced to take the lead on most things and be responsible for others, it just seems like making it happen is what I do. But when you are forced to wait on God to move it can be SO uncomfortable. Patience is an area of growth that I see needs work. I feel like I’m patient and then I get anxious, start to worry, and at times doubt it’s going to ever happen. I know that having faith and giving it to God is a part of, or should be a part of our Christian journey but to say I don’t struggle at times would be a lie. As a mature in HIM, I’m learning that I only want what HE has already said is mine. If HE didn’t do it, I don’t want it! Not my time, but his time. Not my will, but his! If I have to wait, I’ll wait on him. Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved ❤️.
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. ❤️
Sometimes life brings you to a place where all you can do is sit and ponder. Ponder on the things that are happening or have happened in your life. Ponder what lies before you and if things are as they seem. PONDER this…….God is an amazing father and all that you need is him. Ponder on his goodness and how he has promised to never leave you nor forsake you! Stop pondering situations and circumstances that are beyond your control. Give it to God and ponder on him. He is the only one with the power to make things change. Tonight I am grateful that in the midst of turmoil all over this country I can rest in HIM. I love you all, goodnight.❤️
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. ❤️
When you allow God to mend the broken pieces of your heart you find that love was always waiting in the wind. Loving God plays a huge part in loving yourself and being able to love someone else. Stop holding what God has purposed for you hostage by living in past hurt and disappointment. Allow yourself to be freed from all the pain, disappointment, insecurity, and anxiety. Love is a beautiful thing when respected, honored, nurtured, and coveted. Start by loving God and then yourself. The rest will come! Have a fabulous Friday. Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved. ❤️
As I look back over my life and the things I’ve gone through I realize that every situation had a purpose. Be it a reason, a season, or lesson learned it prepared me for the present. Sometimes when we feel like we are losing in life we really are growing and being molded for the BEST parts of our life. It hasn’t always felt good nor has it been easy, but I thank God for all of it. Not only do I thank God, I thank every individual that played a part of those seasons. Life is good, and although our country seems to be in chaos, I KNOW that it’s getting better. Be encouraged and know that your latter will be GREATER than your past! Be safe, be blessed and know that you are loved. ❤️
Learning to control the things you allow in your spirit can truly be a task. On this journey we call life there are so many factors that play a part of and in our daily lives. What we feed and give life will be the very thing that steers the outcome of our day. Be mindful of the things you allow to occupy your space. This is not limited to people. Anything that distracts and causes you to lose sight of God and his plan for your life is a hinderance. Don’t allow the ill intentions of others, the faulty claims, and the attention seekers to deter your process. God’s got you, and trust me, YOU GOT HIM! HE alone is enough to ward off anything! Stay focused and know that I love you. ❤️ Be safe, be blessed…..
