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.

Be YOU, bravely!

🀣 #ImAHotMess But in all seriousness, don’t hold back from being who YOU are. Let me just be clear on something. If you’re rude, disrespectful & your intentions are just malicious then you truly need to look within & ask yourself why that is. That’s not what I’m referring to. What I mean is don’t hold back from being the person you fought so hard to become. Sometimes we feel the need to wear these different masks to satisfy others. Why?!? πŸ€”

Transformation πŸŒ»πŸ™Œ

Sometimes Facebook will remind you of some great memories & other times not so great. 2010 was a year full of hurt, emptiness, insecurity, confusion & brokenness. This picture is a reflection of that. Behind that pose, little dress πŸ™ˆ & fake smile was a lost soul who was crying out for help. I was engaged but yet entertaining another man. I would care after my son all week & I would go out to dance & drink about every other weekend. It was my definition of being free & having fun. 😣 I had been lied to & cheated on prior to this & I just became heartless. πŸ’”

Let’s talk about S.E.X.!Β 

You did NOT come across this post by coincidence. There’s a message God wants to speak to your heart about that has been hindering you from the plans God has for your life. He wants to set you FREE! He wants to RENEW your mind. He wants to HEAL you. There’s POWER in the name of Jesus. If He did it for me, He most definitely can do it for you as well. Continue reading Let’s talk about S.E.X.!Β 

How to Help Your Children Read the Bible πŸ“–πŸ’‘

Upon doing some reading online today, I came across an article – How to Help Your Children Read the Bible.

Not only is it important for me to read the Bible & learn more about Jesus but it’s just as important for my children to learn about Jesus too. My prayer is that they will accept Him as their Lord & Savior someday – sooner than later – just as we have. This is a decision they can only make but it is our responsibility as their parents to teach them about Jesus & show them the way. It is also our responsibility to be the best example we can be by showing them the true meaning of unconditional love, grace, mercy & forgiveness – just like our Heavenly Father shows us – day in & day out.
