As the seasons begin to change I am reminded that change is inevitable. I’ve changed, relationships change, people change, and our priorities change. It used to make me uncomfortable when people change, but I’ve come to realize it’s not always them. In fact, most often I’m the one that has changed. You see, in order to grow we have to be uncomfortable. When you’re uncomfortable, you’re changing! Change doesn’t have to be a negative experience. It may be painful, but God is with us every step of the way. I no longer live in fear of the uncertainty of life and other people. Those are things I can’t control. Instead I live everyday desiring God to consume more of me. When my focus is on him I have less time and opportunity for frivolous things. I am learning to TRUST the Process, leaving all my cares and concerns to HIM. HE knows, and HE cares! Have a wonderful Wednesday and know that you are loved. ❤️Be safe, be blessed. It’s a NEW SEASON!
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! ❤️
Sometimes I think God allows you to remove yourself from things so that HE can get you alone. So HE can renew and refresh the work that HE has started in you. As the seasons in my life are ever changing I’ve learned to maintain a healthy space for my inner self and a peaceful spirit no matter what. I don’t always understand what goes on around me but I do know that God will perfect everything and everyone that concerns me. Life is all about change and I too must learn to adjust. In this season of being still and remaining quiet I am learning many valuable lessons. The greatest of these is that I have nothing to prove to anyone. I am HIS creation and HE made me to HIS liking. Therefore, I have no reason to doubt or fear. I may not be where I want to be but I am definitely on my way. I am becoming exactly who HE wants me to be. The opinions of others don’t matter! It feels so good to be free! This is me……..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! ❤️
“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
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! ❤️
Yesterday while volunteering I encountered a young lady that needed to be encouraged. This young lady for some reason decided to tell me her story which gave some insight on why there was a look of sadness and despair in her eyes. She began to cry as I spoke with her and told her that her mistakes aren’t what matters, her heart is what matters to God. She cried for minutes which seemed like an hour in the middle of the facility. As I comforted her I told her that I would be in continuous prayer for her and her family. As we get in the full holiday swing, let’s remember the people that are carrying heavy burdens and feelings of loneliness. You never know what the next person may be going through. I ask you this question, where is your heart? Can God trust your heart to care for his people? Choose love, choose kindness, choose humility…….Be safe, be blessed, and know that I love you. ❤️
Sometimes we come to a place in our lives where we have to leave our comfort zone and do something different. We have to face our fears, our future, and the purpose that God has given us. Often when we make this decision the enemy will begin to attack like never before. Don’t allow the distraction to deter you from what has already been given to you. The devils job is to keep you off kilter. Stay focused! God will never bring you to a place He’s not able and willing to keep you. Be encouraged and know that your BEST days are ahead of you. Have a wonderful Thursday! Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved! ❤️
Monday a close friend sent me a song and the words truly resonated in my spirit. The song is a testament of a young lady’s life. It was sent to me because it is parallel to something similar in my life. It’s amazing the things that you may have said or done that may have impacted the life of someone else. I’m so grateful to have received the song because I am different. When you are different and you KNOW that your purpose is much greater than you could ever imagine you walk boldly in being different. I say this to remind you that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with being who and what you are. Stand in your purpose and pray diligently for guidance and direction from God. He will not lead you astray. Learn to be exactly who you are. God created you for greatness, now walk in it! Be safe, be blessed, and have a wonderful Wednesday! 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! ❤️
