In every test that your life will face, there will be a testimony. Meaning that no matter how hard a situation is when God brings you out of it, you will be able to see the good in it. Life’s rough patches don’t go away but if you are patient and stay the course there is a benefit on the other side. Learn to embrace the challenge and depend on God for strength and guidance. He doesn’t give us these assignments to hurt us. Instead he wants us to grow. If you always remain comfortable, you’ll never experience growth. Remember, at the end of every test there’s a testimony! Stay focused, depend on God, and know that you can make it! Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved!
Ever thought about why you were created? What you were meant to do? What your passion in life is? Many of us go through life trying to answer these questions. Finding your purpose takes focus, prayer, and a desire to be honest with yourself. You have to pay attention to what your spirit and your heart says. Your purpose doesn’t always come wrapped up as a 9-5 you visit everyday. Sometimes it’s the after you clock in and out that fulfills your purpose in life. Whatever your purpose, make sure you fulfill it. Be intentional about practicing your purpose daily. Only when we live in purpose, on purpose, and with purpose will our lives feel complete. Be safe, be blessed, and have a terrific Tuesday! I love you. ❤️
As I navigate this phase of my life I am learning to exercise my faith. It became practice to say “have faith”, but not be accountable for actually exercising it. For years I have walked in fear, doubt, and sometimes shame. This is NOT the way God wants us to live. God wants us to live an abundant life! This type of life requires us to trust him in ALL things. Today, I encourage you to exercise your faith, trust God with your life, and know that HE has you covered! Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved. ❤️
Don’t let the madness in your Monday weigh you down. You have a right to choose how your day will be. Choose today to start something new, do something different, or set new goals. As life passes us by we must remember that nothing but the love of Christ lasts forever. Change is inevitable and sometimes we have to be the change. So, change the way you respond to Monday and watch it change your life! Everyday is a gift from God, we must choose to live accordingly. Have a marvelous Monday! Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved. ❤️
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

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.
