Reminder: Keep pressing on!

Before I head out from work, I wanted to quickly share these words with you:

KEEP PRESSING ON!!

These last several weeks have been HARD but I finally had a breakthrough yesterday. It’s awesome to have someone in your corner that will not be afraid to intercede (also known as intervene on behalf of another) and pray for you when you don’t even have the strength to do so. Of course, you want to always turn to God as we are instructed to in 1 Peter 5:7. It tells us to give all our worries and cares to God, for He cares about us.

Can I be transparent? πŸ™„πŸ’­

Have you ever felt like you would give anything to get away, far away, just you and God? Away from distractions? Away from responsibilities? Away from people? Away from your own thoughts and emotions?

Yupp!! That’s what I’m experiencing right now. But yet I am alone in my car and instead of taking this time to spend with God, I’m here blogging instead. It’s foolish of me to continue typing because minutes before I pulled my phone back out to type all of this I was just saying outloud, “I want more of You, God. I just want more of You.”

But then minutes before that I was looking through my contacts checking to see who I can call to speak to or to text before tossing my phone into my bag. Are you kidding me?!? I wanna smack myself for this foolishness.

Lord, how are you going to get me there?

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. πŸ’•πŸŒ»

β€œThe 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?

Your life isn’t over just because a relationship is.

Old facebook status from April 28, 2016 –

I remember being in a relationship that I knew God wanted me out of but no matter how many times I attempted to let go, I found my way back & it made it that much harder for me until I was left to pick up all the pieces of my broken heart.

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.

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 “
