Starting 2015 with a bang….or something like that

A couple of months ago I decided to draw a vision board. New Year’s resolutions have never really been my thing. I start out the new year with all this momentum and a month later I’m pooped out. No motivation whatsoever. I don’t want to follow through on things. I have come to realize if I want things to change, I have to create it. You can’t expect things to turn out differently if you’re unwilling to play your part to change. My vision board consists of four categories: spiritual, health, finances and career.
Spiritual growth is important to me because I want to grow in God. Reading my Bible and praying more is helping me with that. Also, going to church connects me His people. I’m not really a people person. I can totally keep to myself and that’s not neccessarily a good thing. How can I minister to individuals or groups if I isolate? Don’t get me wrong. There are moments where you need to be alone so God can speak and you listen. Then there are situations where you need to listen to God as He gives you instruction on what to say and how to say it.
My health has recently taken a turn for the better. Some events occured this past summer that made me take a look at my own life. I decided to eat more vegetables and fruits. I havent quite worked out consistently but I am getting back to it.
I decided too that if I want to one day own a house, I need to take the steps needed to do so. I’m paying off my deferred school loans and rebuilding my credit. Its so hard but I know it will be totally worth it.
My career is steady. I am currently a CNA and I am working part time in doing that. Still looking for another job that I can actually live on/off of. I think I’m almost there. Hopefully my job applications come through for me!
I’ve got a lot going on right now. Not complaining, just grateful for being to do the things I can. Until next time, take care.

Not sure where to start so I will begin here…

   This past July my mother suffered a stroke. I couldnt believe it. A strong, caring, compassionate woman of God and who also loves God is being truly tested. At first I was upset. Not at God. But how this situation changed my mom. This once vivacious woman had been succumbed to a hospital bed. Her right side paralyzed. I was strong for a while and tried not to let her see me cry. That would make her upset and she too, would shed tears. I helped bathe her, get her dressed, gave medications, and cooked meals. It was hard for me seeing her like this. I could only imagine how she felt. She was actually in the situation. She was unable to move her limbs like she wanted. She was the one that was frustrated she couldnt do certain things. She has always been a busy person. I dont mean busy body but someone who gives their time, has an ear to hear, serving others, searching for ways to help someone else. I asked God why. I didnt get an immediate answer. Through the process of my mother getting progressively better, I have seen His hand on her life.
   Our trials and tribulations are not for ourselves. It is so that people may see Gods glory in the midst of it all and that they may know Jesus for who He is. This hasnt been the easiest predicament to be in but through it all I know God is in control. It is also a learning lesson for everyone we are connected to. I pray that people see my mom and know that God is real. This stroke could have easily taken her out but God didnt allow it. Its easy to complain and look at the negative but Im so thankful she is still here. Im treasuring the time I have with her.
   She is proof that God heals. And I am proof that He is a keeper. How can you say who/what God is to you unless youve been in a situation where you need him to be ________ (fill in the blank)?

Trust & Believe in Him

Trust & Believe in Him

You are not where you are by accident or incident. Everyone has a purpose!

His Love

     Lately I have been thinking about forgiveness. I have heard that you must forgive others that have hurt you in order for you yourself to move on. I never really thought that was actually true until I experienced it. Many of us hold on to grudges with people, myself included, while that person sleeps well at night.

     Being a Christian, I came to the realization that not forgiving is not Christ-like. I know, shocker. How can I claim to be a follower and not do what is right? Knowing to do the right thing and choosing not to is a sin. Also, how can I ask God for forgiveness if I’m not willing to forgive? I have to admit it is a process. Know better, do better. Time to move on. It’s hard but I know I cannot solely rely on myself. I need to forgive and let God handle everything else. Do I need to know all of the details of how it is going to work out? Absolutely not. But I know God is able to do it. It’s time to activate my faith.

You’re Perfect

My friend saw this video and tagged me on Facebook last week. Ever since, I have been trying to find his name and haven’t been successful until today. Trent Shelton is telling the truth and it makes SO much sense. Look up his name on Youtube to find more inspiration. A definite pick me up for Monday. Smile!

Think About It

     Sometimes I look at my life and wonder where I would be if I continued school. Pursuing journalism. Although exciting, I was not in love with the idea of having deadlines and writing about certain topics. I’m a free spirit. My mind wonders. There are times where I jump from one thing to the next. I don’t know a little about a lot of things but instead, I know a lot about a few things. All in all, God always know what He is doing. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason; not by incident or accident. A couple of years ago my Pastor told me that God wants to use me and that He has a great work for me to do. And for that, I would not need a college degree. At that point in life I didn’t have the greatest self-esteem. I had gotten kicked out of the same college twice only learning later I have a learning disability. I had doubted who I was and what I was actually able to do. I have to remind myself that God is my father and can help me. I also have to help myself. I think of faith as an action word. I have to put it to use. With that being said, fully put your trust in God. He knows what He is doing.

Music Monday

I recently heard this song on BET’s Celebration of Gospel. I had heard of Earnest Pugh before but not this actual song. The words hit home for me, as it describes more or less my relationship with God.

Free My Mind

Hello all!! I hope each and every one of you are having a great day!

A good friend of mine sent me this video literally 11 hours ago and I’d thought I would share it with you all.

This is really the tip of the iceberg, really. But I want you to see it for what it is. Take a look and comment. I will soon write a follow-up.
