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

We have finally come to the end of the road with the fruit of the spirit series. When I tell you this has been a lot of self-control to go all the way with this…
Anyway, this is the last message in this series I promise. If you need any more help with these fruits – please reach out and I will try to make a blog about your request.
Of course, I can go on and on about how my tongue used to have no filter. I could say something “new” about how hitting the gym takes a lot of restraint from giving up in the first part of your body producing sweat. But I want to say something that is so important – yet no one admits. This my friends is free will
We all have choices to make. Big or small ones – it is important that we make the right ones. I feel like in my heart I always know the right one to do. The hard part is sticking to what I know will be good for my life.
My mentor told me this little lesson. “The first time is always the benefit of the doubt. When it happens the second time – you should be paying attention.But when it happens the third time – it’s time to start making some changes.”
My stubborn personality has its benefits. Once I made up my mind – it’s no changing. No matter what people or things may throw at you, please stay focused on what is true. If you know it’s wrong – have the discipline to stay away from temptation.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but one of power, love, and sound judgment.
2 Timothy 1:7
