When 2019 is not what you expected it to be.

I know it’s only the 3rd day of 2019 but …Β 

Maybe you experienced a loss of some sort.

Maybe you received a bad report or terrible news.

Maybe you are still experiencing the same problems that you were facing in 2018.

Maybe something or someone has gotten in the way of the goals and desires you set for this New Year.

Maybe you had zero expectations for this New Year.

Maybe you are not as hyped or as motivated as you were seconds before the ball dropped.

Maybe you are battling the same struggles that you swore up and down that you would conquer in 2019.

If I can be honest … Continue reading When 2019 is not what you expected it to be.

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.

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 I came to know Jesus

I had been contemplating on whether or not I should share this post for several days now because many people see the love I have for Jesus but don’t know the story behind my praise. The purpose in sharing my testimony is not for pity nor am I seeking for attenion but to illustrate God’s grace, mercy, forgiveness & over all God’s love for us. However, I’ve come a long way & still have a long way to go. As long as I am still breathing, I will be learning & growing as a human being & most importantly as a follower of Jesus Christ.

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?

Heart to Heart – Yara


I was born straight into a broken home. One parent was diagnosed with schizophrenia, battled demons (literally), depression, and drug addiction. The other parent abused prescription drugs and I suspect molestation and who had absolutely no idea what is was to love herself, let alone a child. My mom was 23 when she had me. I don’t know the entire story and I am sure I never will, but shortly thereafter – she became a single mom. My dad lived in Puerto Rico for a couple years, but my grandma (his mom) would pick me up sometimes so that I could have a relationship with his side of the family. I still remember the day he came back to NJ and they introduced me to him. I was so confused, and at roughly 6 years old, had no idea how to even feel. It was fun while it lasted. But because my mom and dad could never get along, my mom turned into this β€œbaby mama” and completely just removed him from my life all together. My mom was a workaholic, and although when I was really young she spent a bit more time with me, as I got older, she would stay at work for about 12 hours and even when she was home, it was obvious she didn’t care much about connecting.

Grace that overcomes ALL! πŸ•‡πŸ’•πŸŒ»

β€œSo he returned home to his father. And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him. His son said to him, β€˜Father, I have sinned against both heaven and you, and I am no longer worthy of being called your son.” – Luke 15:20‭-‬21

Here’s a story about a son who asks his dad for his inheritance way before it’s time. His father grants his wish & he chooses to go far away & pretty much “lives it up”. After some time has passed, he runs out of all the inheritance that was given to him. He realizes he was better off living with his dad because he had all that he needed. When he finally came to his senses, he realized he had turned his back on his father. He chose the life he thought would be much more satisfying than the life he had been currently living only to leave him feeling empty & lost. When he realized what he had done, he committed himself to go back & ask for His father’s forgiveness. His father had been waiting for him all this time. Once he saw him from a distance, he ran to his son. Embraced him with opens arms & celebrated his return.
