Lately, I’ve been in an emotional roller coaster. One minute I’m feeling encouraged and on fire for God and then the next minute I’m feeling discouraged and stagnant. But I’m grateful that I can always turn to God and He is the same at all times. His grace is truly sufficient and He always finds a way to remind us of this truth. I pray this devotional and song blesses you as it blessed me. 💕🌻
“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord,
And He delights in his way.” Psalms 37:23
Some of you are wondering how God is going to get you from where you are today to where He wants you to be. How can He get us from where we are in our current situations, and our current lives to the great destiny, that we know deep in our hearts, God has in mind for us?

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.

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.

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 🙈 & 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. 💔

We love Him because He first loved us. – 1 John 4:19 NKJV
There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about God. However, that wasn’t always the case.

Lord, I am here. In awe of Your love. Thank You for the relationship I get to experience with you on a daily basis. Forgive me for missing the mark each & every day. Thank You for Your grace & Your mercy that sustains me day to day. Thank You for being my Rock on which I stand. Thank You for Your Word that is a Lamp to my feet & a Light to my path. Thank You for being my Help in times of trouble & my Strength when I’m weak. Thank you for being my Comforter & Provider. Have Your way in my life, Lord! May the love I have for you grow deeper & deeper. Don’t allow me to become complacent. Continue to be the lover of my soul. I needed you then, I need you now & I shall need you for the rest of my life. I praise You, Lord. I exalt Your Holy Name. You are worthy to be praised. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen!
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.

We should NEVER be ashamed of anything we’ve been through. We are not what happened to us. We are who we choose to become.

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 “baby 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.
