The Awaken Devotional

I’ve been following this awesome & beautiful young lady for a few months now & what a blessing she has been. She’s super encouraging & has a powerful testimony. I just love her spirit. She encouraged me to purchase my own copy of this amazing devotional titled, “Awaken” by Priscilla Shirer & I had to share it.

I believe it’s important to share the different ways we can grow in our walk with God & that is why I share the different resources that have helped me along the way.

I pray it blesses you.

Turning up for Jesus! πŸ™ŒπŸ’“

It’s been a couple days since we’ve been back from our retreat & we are STILL in awe of God. A few years ago, I would have never imagined spending an entire weekend praising & worshipping God. I remember always looking forward to the weekend & making plans to go out & drink/dance the night away. This is not meant to pass any judgement on anyone. I promise. I’m just simply stating facts on how jacked up MY life was & the destructive life I was living.

“Sound The Alarm” πŸ“£ – A.Life Retreat

I’m grateful that God has allowed me to attend this retreat (first retreat ever) & I’m looking forward to an awesome experience. Not only have I been praying for an open heart & mind in order to RECEIVE all that God has in store for us but that I also APPLY it to my life.

Saved by Grace πŸ‘‘πŸ’“

Currently listening to one of my go-to playlists.

A few weeks ago, I began to read the book of Proverbs. I had been desiring for more of God and of His Word. God truly knows our heart’s desires and will fulfill them as He sees fit. Several months ago, I joined a book study at one of my friend’s church and we created a group chat on Whatsapp so that we can stay in communication. One of the girls in our chat encouraged us to join her in reading the book of Proverbs. This was only just a couple of weeks ago and it’s been awesome. When we truly are intentional about spending time with God and reading His Word, the Holy Spirit will give us the understanding we need and will reveal things that can only be revealed to us with His help.

Relationship Goals πŸ’•

No matter how great someone’s relationship or marriage may look like on social media or in person, no relationship is perfect. We should never glorify someone’s relationship & lose sight on how blessed we are in our own relationship/marriage regardless of our shortcomings. For those that are in unhappy/unhealthy relationships or who may be single, I know how discouraging it can be sometimes to see other couples succeeding but I encourage you not to lose hope. Feeling discouraged doesn’t mean you’re jealous, envious or bitter – it just means what it means, “having lost confidence or enthusiasm; disheartened”.

A love letter to ME! πŸ’Œ

πŸ’­πŸ’“ Oftentimes, we fail to love ourselves in the way we desire for others to love us. We fail at being kind, patient & forgiving towards ourselves. As I sit back & reflect on all I’ve been through in my life I couldn’t help but feel compassion. I feel this often but it’s been a while since I have verbally expressed it to myself so I couldn’t help but to share this with you all …

Comparison: The Thief of Joy

Today, I had a heart to heart with a good friend of mine. Someone I love dearly but then again I love all of my friends dearly – πŸ˜‰πŸ˜™. I am truly blessed to have friends that I can call sisters. Friends that I can be 100% real with and vice versa. Today’s heart to heart was deeper than it has ever been. We cried. We shared. We cried some more. This wasn’t out of the norm as we have cried and shared many times in the past but this time around we shared some things with one another that most people would be too prideful to ever admit. I will not disclose our conversation but I will share a devotional that pretty much sums it up. It’s a lengthy message but I know it will bless you as it did me.

FAITH over fear βš“

“Oceans” is a very popular worship song. I remember one night kneeling by my bed crying out to God as I repeated the words to this song. I didn’t realize how quickly He would answer my request. I’d be lying if I told you it was a smooth sailing experience after that night. It wasn’t. But that night was the beginning of a new chapter in my life.
