Scripture Reflection: 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’”

The Call by Isabel Davis πŸŽΆπŸ’•πŸŒ»

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!

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.

Turning Away …

Oftentimes God allows certain situations to occur so that we would seek more of Him. Whenever things seem to be out of our control, it’s because it is. And the only One who has the control to make it right is … Him! He wants us to understand that only He is capable of turning our situation around & making them into something great if only we could let go of the wheel & allow Him to take control.

Heart to Heart – Monique

“She focused on God. He did the same. God gave them each other.” βœοΈπŸ’•

1-27-16 After waiting a year and six months… OUR FIRST KISS πŸ’•

Don’t be fooled when I met this man I was a broken, beat down, lost soul…I had given my heart to yet another “boy” (age does not make you a man) who did not value me… Once he had me where he wanted me, I was manipulated, used, and abused…Time after time I would “walk away” from this relationship just to run right back… I knew deep inside that I needed to close the door on this toxic relationship, but deception (the enemies tool) would distort my vision, and I continued to believe “things would change”…Things def did not change.. However what did change was my decision to finally cry out to God for his help ( sad that I placed him last) I clearly remember kneeling in my bathroom hysterical crying/yelling telling God he can finally have his way in my life…I no longer wanted to go through life without his hand… Once I gave God control he was able to begin his work in my heart and mind (God is a gentleman he will not force himself on anyone. He allows the choice to be ours)
