I’m so glad that I serve a God that sits high and looks low. Because of HIM I can face any and everything that comes my way. Sometimes I don’t understand it but what I DO know is that I will get through it. You see, most of what the enemy fails to realize is that they can attack you all they want. It’s that FULL ARMOR OF GOD that they need to be afraid of! Every morning I pray and ask God to cover me and those closest to me. I ask him for wisdom in every situation. Don’t you think for a second that HE doesn’t hear his child and answers when she calls. Be careful who you play with and whose battlefield you choose to walk on. God is my protector and HE will fight every demon (person or thing) that rises against me and mine! With God, there is no fear, and I have no fear. Stop wasting your time and energy on things not suited for PURPOSE! Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved! ❤️
I always know when God wants my attention because HE disrupts my sleeping pattern. When this first began to happen was after my parents died. I was unable to sleep for days on end and I just assumed it was apart of the grieving process. As days, months, and now a couple years have passed, I have been able to return to a somewhat normal sleep cycle. But! At times HE still requires more of my time and attention. I live a busy, always got something going on type of life. On top of that I’m a thinker so quite often I find myself “resting” but my brain is still in motion. God knows exactly how to disrupt my pattern. HE does this generally because there’s something in my life that is going to shift and requires my full attention. I’ve learned that when I am in a season of shifting it is important for me to pay close attention to everything around me. This is when I spend more time praying, reading my word, and praising my way through! It doesn’t matter what happens in the end because HE is always with me and HE will perfect everything that concerns me. Don’t give in, don’t give up! God is always with you. Have a wonderful day! Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved. ❤️
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! ❤️
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!
It is with a grateful heart that I say Happy New Year to all of you! If you’ve been blessed to read this blog, know that God has blessed you with another opportunity to get it right. We are so fortunate to have life and to be able to share life with those we love. So what are you going to do with this opportunity? My prayer is that you take advantage of this opportunity and allow God to guide you through the next days of your life. Life is never promised and we have to ensure that we are making the BEST of it. Start today living your life in a manner that will make HIM proud. Focus on those things that will align your life with Christ and watch how blessed you will be. A life with Christ is the best thing you can ever have! Be safe, be blessed and know that you are loved! ❤️
Good morning sunshine! Decide today that yesterday would be the last time you doubted HIM. It is your faith that will give you the power to get through the situation you are going through. Stop allowing every road block to overwhelm and discourage you. That’s just God’s way of putting you back on HIS track. You see, the greater our faith the smaller our problem. HE has the power to do all things, just trust HIM. “Greater is HE that is in ME, than HE that is in the world.” In whom will you trust? Be safe, be blessed, I love you.
I don’t know what happened but there has definitely been a shift and for that I am glad. I am so happy that God doesn’t allow me to be fooled or misled by people and things that mean me no good. I pray on it, and it is revealed. There are some lessons in dealing with things that I am still learning and today I’m thankful for those lessons. Depending on God in every situation is a challenge for me sometimes. But, I’m trusting solely him everyday that he gives me breath to be the head of my life. With him as the head there’s nothing that I can’t accomplish and anything that doesn’t align with his plan for my life be void. Being a child of God has so many perks! In him I believe the impossible. With him I am protected, and in him do I place my trust and cast my cares. Today, I encourage you to stop trusting man and trust God! When you trust God he will perfect everything that concerns you! Be safe, be blessed, and know that I love you! ❤️ Happy Monday!
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! ❤️
