How much longer?

How much longer until I finally get a break? How much longer until I find someone I can build a future with? How much longer until my heart finally heals? How much longer until I find a job? How much longer until the person I love & care for will make the decision to do right for them? How much longer until I see the desires of my heart come to pass?

#Repost from IG – 🌿 Y E S T E R D A Y #latepost & lengthy too 😉 – A week ago my entire life changed. I am now a mother of two precious little boys 👦👶. This past week has been filled with all kinds of emotions. Though I am now completely filled with joy, I can’t say the same was true for the last several days. I found myself falling into what felt like a deep depression.

Every inch of my soul is Yours, Lord! 🕇💕

“Every inch of my soul is Yours, Lord!”

Proclaiming & declaring these words to God over my life is powerful. We must understand that when we submit to God & surrender our lives to Him, the enemy is angry & he’s going to come after us by planting thoughts in our minds that will cause us to doubt our worth or even doubt God’s power, become anxious & fearful only to keep us from what God has called us to do & where He’s calling us to go but we must trust in God & seek more of God through His word, in prayer & surround ourself with other believers that are going to uplift, encourage & point us to Jesus.

Settling for less than God’s best!

PhotoGrid_1493176835203
As I was on my way home from work today, I was reflecting on my life these days. I was debating on whether or not I should pull over to make a video or just wait to get home to post on my blog. In the midst of it, one of my close friends who I love dearly messaged me & I felt led to share my thoughts with her. After she listened to my message on WhatsApp, she shared what a blessing it was to her & I give God all of the glory. If you believe this post blesses you, please don’t hold back from sharing it with others who could possibly be blessed by it too.

The Inevitable Process of Transition

This past week has been an emotional roller coaster for me as we are just 8 weeks away from meeting our little prince or princess. It’s becoming more & more difficult to rest at night due to the tossing & turning, having to empty my bladder every 3 hours or the most annoying non-stop itching on my arms & legs – which I find to be the worst of them all. Not only has it been physically overwhelming but also emotionally & mentally. I have a 9 year old son who I adore & who has taught me the true definition of unconditional love. If I can be honest, it hasn’t been easy for me when I think of how our family of 3 will soon become a family of 4. One of the worries I’ve had since the beginning of my pregnancy is, “Will my son feel like he’s been replaced? Or will he feel less important?” – I know those are silly questions to even ask but this is what occurs when I begin to overanalyze & worry so much about the what if’s. My husband & I have had conversations with our son plenty of times explaining how our love for him will NEVER change & he looks at us like – “Duhh!” – LOL!! Clearly, the one who’s buggin’ is ME! 😩

Turning Away …

Oftentimes God allows certain situations to occur so that we would seek more of Him. Whenever things seem to be out of our control, it’s because it is. And the only One who has the control to make it right is … Him! He wants us to understand that only He is capable of turning our situation around & making them into something great if only we could let go of the wheel & allow Him to take control.

There is STILL hope …

Have you ever found yourself desperate to be saved from a situation you can’t seem to get out of? No matter how much you kick & scream. No matter how much you pray. No matter how many people are praying for you. It just seems like the light at the end of the tunnel seems further & further. Maybe you’re struggling to make ends meet. Maybe you lost a loved one, friend, family member, or a child. Maybe you just received unexpected news. Maybe you’ve fallen into a depression & you have no strength to keep fighting. Maybe you’re going through heartbreak & you’re desperately waiting for the day you can wake up without anxiety or that emptiness in your heart that makes you want to stay in bed all day/night or the kind of pain that you can feel at your fingertips. Maybe you’re not where you thought you’d be by now. I get it. I really do! I’ve been there too & still experience all types of trials & tribulations. These words are to encourage me also!
