Happy Friday

It has been a LONG week! I am so thankful that God has chose me to do this thing called life. Life is so full of unexpected surprises, both good and some not so good. The thing I find most comfort in is that I know God is always with me. This time last week my son and I were ill and in slow motion. Fast forward to now, both up and at it. I think sometimes God will slow us down and our bodies are his means of doing so. While I was home for those 5 days I had a lot of time to blog, write in my journal, and just debrief. I was able to check out for a little bit. When your everyday consists of helping others manage and deal with life, working 10 hour days, making sure everyone in your life is good, there’s very little time to self care. I talk about self care all the time but it’s very rare that I practice it. I’m a giver, I invest in others, and it’s my calling to counsel, coach, and inspire. But when my cup is empty I have NOTHING to pour into others. So what I’m saying is, take care of you. If you don’t, God will give you a forced time out. We have to replenish our heart, our mind, and our spirit regularly. It’s necessary! You’d be amazed at how much better you feel when you regain your focus! Have a fantastic Friday! Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved. ❤️ Copyright © 2020 NuSeasn. All rights reserved.

Keep Going

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!

A Thought for Thursday…

If I tell you today has been a day, I want you to believe just THAT! I am so glad that I have learned to process things in my life differently. As I’ve grown to discern certain things and allow God to guide certain areas of my life I’m noticing the enemy’s attacks just began to come like a flood. If he can’t get you one way he’ll attack another area. If that attempt doesn’t work he tries something different. It just keeps going. The victory in it all is that my faith and my joy no longer wavers. I acknowledge his attacks, declare the victory over every situation and I move on. If nothing else in life is constant, God is. In him I put my trust. Stop putting all your trust in man. Man will let you down. Remember, we are all imperfect people and sometimes will let each other down. Recognize, recover, forgive, repeat. We are all a work in progress. Just a little thought for this Thursday. Be safe, be blessed, and know that I love you! ❤️

Sometimes stepping out of your comfort zone means doing things different in order to reflect change in your life. I am constantly in prayer asking God to mold me into the woman of purpose that he’s called me to be. God never promised that life would be easy. What HE did promise was to never leave or forsake you. Your worrying has never changed or made your situation better. All it ever did was make me lose my self worth, my focus, and a good whole lot of sleep! Game OVER! Learning to trust HIM in every situation makes life SO much easier. To whom MUCH is given, MUCH is required. It’s a new day, it’s a new season. Have a wonderful day, be safe, be blessed. I love you! ❤️

Just when you think you’ve made it the devil will remind you that he is still busy. Busy causing destruction and definitely busy causing division and confusion. Usually I am the encourager, yet today I’m needing to encourage myself. I pray, but I still worry. I believe, but my faith sometimes grows weary. I trust, yet still can’t see the plan. Even the strong get tired. We have issues and insecurities like everyone else. We go through things and cry silently because our purpose is bigger than our struggles. Today is one of those days that I know God will have to fix it. I pray that your day is blessed. Just in case you didn’t know, I love you. Happy Tuesday!

Don’t be Distracted!

When you are on your purpose there will always be a distraction. Just know that the devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy! Those who are called never have an idle moment to spare. We have to remember and maintain our focus. Our focus has to be to keep our hearts, our minds, and our spirits stayed on HIM! We are HIS creatures and made in HIS image! Don’t you know that “distractions” don’t want to see you grow? They don’t want to see you prosper. When transformation begins to take place there will always be something or someone to remind you of how far you’ve come. You will be tempted to go back to the way you used to do and handle things. Stay focused! Know that when God creates the new and improved you, you NEVER HAVE TO RETURN TO THE OLD YOU! Lol, people have a way of reminding us of our old ways. Don’t be disheartened or surprised. Smile and thank God you are NOT who and what you used to be! God has created you for greatness, now walk in it! Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved! ❤️

No Distractions!

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…..

As hard as it is sometimes, we have to learn to just let things be! This is SO very hard for me. You see, I’m a fixer! I want to FIX everybody! My hearts true desire is for people to love and be loved. For them to see their own worth and value. I am by nature a nurturer so I struggle with people that are suffering. As I move forward in ministry I’m learning that everybody don’t want to be fixed! Everybody don’t want my help! Everybody has to process in their own way! Lastly, I’ve learned that after I’ve done all that God requires of me to leave the rest to HIM! I can’t keep walking around carrying everybody’s mess! Some people feel most comfortable in chaos and messy situations. Oh no, not me! I’m learning to pray for them, and leave it all up to the Lord. It’s truly above me! I thank God for that morning revelation! Now y’all pray that I am consistent in allowing God to move, and not relying on self! Happy Wednesday everybody. Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved! ❤️

Happy Saturday! While it isn’t how I expected my Saturday to be, I am yet blessed. I am so thankful that I serve a God that looks beyond my faults! Man, that right there will preach! Lol. Y’all ever go through something and just feel so overwhelmed that you truly don’t know how you’re gonna survive it? Life is funny like that huh? The mere situations that you think will destroy who and what you are, are the very ones that have been sent to test your faith. It doesn’t matter what I go through, I will get through it. I may not understand and it may hurt, but I will survive. I was just built like that! A TRUE survivor! I see it like this, if God can take both my parents, my only support system in 10 days, and it’s been almost 2 years and I’m still here…..I can survive just about anything! Today, I challenge you to press in and press forward. It gets hard, it gets lonely, and most often you feel like nobody understands, just know that you’ll make it. Be safe, be blessed, and KNOW that I love you! ❤️ Happy Saturday! 😊

A moment of transparency….

While most people were sleeping last night, I laid awake processing my life and my plans vs God’s plan. I laid there thinking, wondering, and asking God when he will answer my prayers. While I do thank him for all he’s already done, I am ever curious about the things HE’s still gonna do. Meanwhile, I read and stumbled across things on social media that actually brought so much more clarity. I was reminded of my strengths and definitely some of the areas that I fall short in. What I did affirm in those quiet hours of reflection is that I AM ENOUGH. I don’t have to look like, act like, talk like, or pretend to be anything or anyone else. Im not for everybody, and everybody is not for me. God is wanting me to embrace the woman I’ve become and the woman HE has called me to be. It’s funny to watch yourself evolve right in the midst of transition. I forgive a little faster, I love a little harder, I work harder at being more understanding, and I am definitely learning patience. This process is NOT for the faint at heart, but for those who are willing to push through. The things that used to bring me tears and cause my heart to grieve are no longer. I have awaken, and I have ARRIVED! Today I can be grateful for every hurt, every disappointment, and every situation that has molded me into being the BEST version of me. I am so excited about the things God is doing. I just can’t keep it to myself. Have a wonderful day. Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved. ❤️
