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! ❤️
Here’s to another day, another opportunity to get it right. Each of us carry our own struggles and sometimes that can be quite overwhelming. The blessing in those struggles is that when we wake each day we have been granted another chance to get it right. If you are reading this you are blessed. Just because things may not appear to be perfect or going the way you thought or think they should does NOT mean you aren’t blessed. Somebody, somewhere, didn’t wake up this morning. There are families around the world mourning the loss of a loved one. Remember that even in our struggles and our pain God has the power to change our situation. Tap into the word and trust God to turn it around. Be safe, be blessed, and know that I love you! ❤️
Every now and then you have to evaluate and check yourself! Instead of focusing on what somebody else is doing focus on what you could be doing. As tough as I am, I often find my heart and feelings being hurt because I expect ME from others. Today, I am thankful for the quiet time and the reflection. I work so hard to keep things in perspective that I forget at times what the reality is. You cannot expect people to do or respond according to what YOU feel is important. Not because they don’t want to but because they have their own individual priorities and things that matter most to them. So I encourage you today to focus on being the BEST version of YOU. Act according to who and what you are! Stops expecting YOU from other people. Less disappointment, less expectation. Live your life, love your life, and allow God to position your heart according to his will. Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved. ❤️
