Hello! Welcome to today’s post. Someone asked me this question before. This is a Christian Blog, why not address it here?
Starting a blog about my faith was not planned. Somehow I got here and it has turned into something beautiful. Now that my leadership skills are apparent, it pops into my head every now and then. Writing about my walk is a lot different than creating a physical atmosphere for others. Being authentic with a level of quality will always be a goal of mine.
Two things are for sure: doing it alone is not an option, and this is not the season.
This space is still for mistakes, growing, and maturing. There are so many things I want to do in my personal life before I make such a big commitment. If the time is ever right, God will open the right doors for it to happen.
God always places the right things in our heart in each season. I won’t fight the call – but I will also not force it too soon.
For the vision is yet for the appointed time;
it testifies about the end and will not lie.
Though it delays, wait for it,
since it will certainly come and not be late.

I knew a change was necessary at the beginning of the year. As I said in a previous post, discovering my potential is important to me. Being out of my comfort zone for several months was difficult. Now that I look back over the year I have learned so much from life. I wanted to share some things I have learned in 2018.
- Be open to possibilities.
- Just because something or someone seems scary, doesn’t mean it’s bad. Take time to figure out why a circumstance is a way it is before dismissing it altogether.
- God will always provide protection in difficult times
- As long as we all stay true to ourselves, we will be ok.
- There will always be an opportunity to exit when things have served its purpose.
- Something not working out is not always a failure. There are conditions that are temporary to teach life lessons.
- In the end – our bravery and faith will reward us in abundance.
Be strong, and let your heart be courageous,
all you who put your hope in the Lord. Psalm 31:24

As I’m here working I’m thinking “wow I never had this much peace in my life.” There was always something to be angry about. Something was always there to fight against. I’m going to have to get used to all of this peace. It’s probably safe to say I used my early 20s wisely, my foundation is solid and I’m starting to get cozy.
The first thing I had to start doing was listening to my spirit. I truly believe God gives us feelings and intuition to help get us to where we need to be. There were plenty of times where I felt uncomfortable and feeling like things were not right. Please listen to the unsettled part of you. It’s not going to go away – it will only get worse. When we acknowledge the bad times, we can search for answers to change our lives. Once I figured out what needed to be changed, I became my own advocate. It was scary but I fought for what I believed I deserved.
Once I made up my mind about certain circumstances, there was no more reasoning. If people or events didn’t work the first time, it was over. No matter how much people said they changed or whatever, I was convicted that my spirit no longer needed that. It was rough and sometimes lonely, but I knew God would provide everything I needed when the time was right.
Now that today is my birthday I’m so blessed at how everything turned out. I regret nothing.

A clip from my thoughts on June 9th, 2018
I feel every inch of my spirit.
Alive, uncomfortable, anxious hoping silence will calm me.
Back and forth I go over thoughts and how I could make things right – I’m left with nothing
I pause and sigh. “You know what I’m only one person, I’m not God. I can’t do everything. I can’t please everyone.”
If we are not clear about what our purpose and roles are in life, it sort of becomes like we’re on a hamster wheel.
I’m in the process of letting go of perfectionism, it’s served its purpose in my life. I accept that I won’t always know the answer or have solutions for others. We were all given one mind and spirit for a reason – we weren’t designed to live for other people. Yes, it is important to be in a supportive community and of service to others – but our connection to God is the most important aspect of our existence.
I release all plans and fears, and once again – I take a leap of faith.
25 Strength and honor are her clothing, and she can laugh at the time to come. Proverbs 31:25

“You can’t trust others until you trust yourself. You have to have faith that you’re equipped with everything you need in any situation.” — Wisdom from my mentor.
I started reflecting on obstacles in my life.
Of course, I’m not able to do everything on my own: I’m human. I’m not as big as a mountain, yet God loves me enough to remove any barrier. Living in fear and clutching on tight to my ego is not going to help. Allowing God to move is a guarantee that everything will be fine.
Let’s stop worrying about being prepared for the “what ifs.” In this very moment, we must surrender our spirits to the lord. He will give us the wisdom and strength to fight battles. If we can’t trust ourselves – we must serve the Lord until he fills us up with his power.
17 Because God wanted to show his unchangeable purpose even more clearly to the heirs of the promise, he guaranteed it with an oath, 18 so that through two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to seize the hope set before us. 19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain. Hebrews 6:17-19

[Write and delete] “No that doesn’t sound good.” [Repeat.]
Ugh hello everyone,
If only you knew how hard it is to open with how I’ve really been feeling lately. I’m thinking about my future. My mind is filled with a million and one “I guess I’m an adult now” things.
Then this takes me back to when I ever start anything great in this city. My mom had to force me out of the nest and become a fully able woman. Bored and single I started this blog with a cute puppy I didn’t ask for. All these things were a blessing I didn’t see value in until I looked back over it all.
I’m scared thinking about the future – but I believe God will provide me everything that I need for every moment I have in life. With him all things are possible and I know I will more than okay.
6 Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

I’ve been through many phases of my beauty regimen. We all have those moments where we think something looks good until we look back at an old photo and cringe.
Hair, makeup, and nails are a part of what makes me… me. It’s a girly art I enjoy doing.
I guess the point of this blog is to say make sure you have a healthy balance of beauty in your life. Yes, these things can make you feel good about yourself, but don’t let it take away from your spirit.
There was a time I thought that putting on a pound of makeup would take away from the pain and feelings of unworthiness. The outside was perfect, but the way I treated other’s was the case of a classic mean girl.
As I got older, I realized a clogged up spirit [and pores] is not healthy – or cute. It’s ok to take care of our appearance, but if everything else is broken, people will catch on and seize the moment to its full advantage.
When we find our value in God and not of a superficial reality – that is when we become beautiful.

Let’s all be honest here. If being a Christian meant having a boring life, I would say no thank you. I like being silly and having fun. God would be great and all, but I wouldn’t see him as someone worth having a relationship with.
I would just like to make it very clear there is nothing wrong with having a good life. There is so much beauty in the world, why wouldn’t God want us to enjoy it?
I like going to the gym, shopping, and having girl time. You’re here – so we both like to read. As long as we are respecting ourselves and others, enjoying life is not a bad thing.
Here are a few tips.
- Treat yourself to being pampered. I enjoy keeping up with my beauty and appearance. It’s ok to be a beautiful work of art. There is a way to do it without being vulgar.
- It’s ok to talk to others. If there are healthy boundaries and no one is getting hurt, it’s ok. Being a Christian is more than just throwing Jesus in someone’s face. Every part of your life – including how you treat others, should reflect the blessings God has given you.
- Hobbies and interest are nice to have. Don’t judge me, but I like to watch videos about Disney World. It’s an entire culture of videos dedicated to the parks and movies, it makes me feel like a kid again.
Let go and have fun – just be smart and safe.
15 So I commended enjoyment because there is nothing better for a person under the sun than to eat, drink, and enjoy himself, for this will accompany him in his labor during the days of his life that God gives him under the sun.

Hey everyone! Here’s another break from fruits of the spirit. It’s hard sticking to this plan but I’m committed to finishing. I’m not sure what I will be doing next, but I know God will put something in my heart to share with you all.
February has been an excellent month. I dedicated this time to exercising and eating right. Almost every night – I wake up out of my sleep craving something I shouldn’t have. I have to fight to eat something healthy or go back to sleep.
When I tell you temptation is a serious thing – we all can say this is true. I believe eventually I will grow out of this bad habit of wanting a juicy burger with fries at 3 am.
God wants all of us to live a healthy productive life. Taking care of our bodies and minds are so important. The thrill of instant stimulation can be a reward at first – but it’s toxic and can hinder us from a great life.
Let’s work together to fight the temptations of the fridge and challenges of this world.
And do not bring us into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.
