Another thing I’ve been going through is family matters. I’m known as the nice smart person in my family. For a while, I was the listening ear to many problems that had nothing to do with me. It was until recently I have had enough and I had to put an end to it all.
For one thing, I’m at the age where I’m thinking about the future. Over time, a fear began to grow inside of me. “What’s the point of having a family if no one around me has a success story?” Logically it didn’t make sense to want to be in a relationship.
As I researched the topic more, I realized that God loves us and wants me to be in community with other people – including a healthy intimate union. Love is important to God and he wants us to experience how beautiful it can be. To get rid of this spirit of fear and blocking love – I had to stop listening to other people’s problems. Other’s fault has nothing to do with where God wants to take me.
It may not be love – it may something else. If it is not the will of God, you don’t have to believe in a lie. You can live a happy fruitful life.
Don’t fight the blessing God has for your life. Choose to live a fearless life.
18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper corresponding to him.” Genesis 2:18
Once again, welcome to this week’s prayer. Here is this week’s prayer.
Thank you for providing the opportunity to seek your presence. Your love and grace are what keep me going and humbly serve you.
I want to pray for those who may not know you or feel distant. I pray that you reveal yourself to anyone that wants to know who you are. Please show that your heart is pure and you want the best for all of us. Show that you are a father who will protect and provide for all – no matter the situation.
Allow our life to have value and abundance of blessings. If there is anything we need to change, let it be put our spirits to change.
Thank you, God, for everything you have and will do.
In Jesus Name,
You will seek me and find me when you search for me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13
The past couple of weeks have had a lot going on. One of the things I’ve been going through is revisiting one of God’s promises for my life.
Someone prophesied over my life 5 years ago. I was super excited because the vision was amazing. Year after year, I began to lose hope and doubt the entire thing.
2013-now is when I finally see the horizon.
I’m starting to realize God was with me the whole time. Even when I thought it was over, he had his hand in every detail down to the exact minute. From my experience, I want to share that just because you forgot about it, doesn’t mean God did. There is a special assignment on all of our lives. If you do the right and stay strong in conviction – you will prosper.
We serve a faithful God who will be with us forever and ever. Have faith that he will give us strength and peace on earth.
25 Joshua said to them, “Do not be afraid or discouraged. Be strong and courageous, for the Lord will do this to all the enemies you fight.” Joshua 10:25
An art teacher in my high school gave the class a quote one day – it stuck with me to this day. “What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?”
To elaborate I will ask: Would you take more risk? Would you leave an unhealthy circumstance with no answers to what will happen next? Would you be generous with your smile and love? I mean seriously, what would you do?
The fruit of faithfulness is so rebellious of what this world tells you about yourself.
“You know what? I don’t care what you think I deserve or who you think I am. I know I am a child of God and that means all my needs will be met and then some.”
When you walk with the presence of God in your life, you can conquer anything.
35 “‘Then I will raise up a faithful priest for myself. He will do whatever is in my heart and mind. I will establish a lasting dynasty for him, and he will walk before my anointed one for all time.
1 Samuel 2:35
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.
When I got back from the gym last night, I looked at my schedule.
“Oh my gosh – I set myself up to burn out.”
Truth is, I want to meet someone worth having a marriage with. With small groups, working and other activities – I wouldn’t have time to give a potential partner.
So for a partner I don’t even have [yet], I sat down and organized my entire schedule.
And that is where you all come in.
Instead of going for a Monday / Wednesday / Friday schedule, I’m switching gears.
To free up my schedule it will be Tuesday / Thursday / and Saturday.
I’m still very passionate about my blog – so the content will still be great quality.
Thank you so much for understanding.

22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord, 23 because the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of the body. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives are to submit to their husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself for her Ephesians 5:22-25
Ever figure out the promises for you life? My steps are usually:
- Get all excited because it sounds incredible.
- Primp and prepare for the big day when everything goes as promised.
- Have a setback and get all discouraged
- Pick myself off the ground and repeat
- Once everything is finally here at the perfect moment – thank God things happened the way they did.
Right now I’m in the phase of picking myself off the ground and being excited again. Monday and Tuesday were rough. I was feeling down because I felt tired and drained. “How much more do I have to take for things to work out?” It took me having a conversation with my mentor. “You have to trust that your prayers are being answered, you have to trust everything will be ok.
It’s easier said than done – I know. Setbacks can be disappointing and frustrating. But there are 2 important things to remember:
28 We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God, who are called according to his purpose. Roman 8:28
When we seek to do the right thing and live a righteous life – everything will be alright. The water may be rough but like I will always tell God “I’m on the boat ready for the ride.”
11 He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also put eternity in their hearts, but no one can discover the work God has done from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11
Another translation uses the phrase “beautiful in it’s own time.” We may want things fast and in a hurry. But God knows the beauty of having gifts in the right way. There is no point in having what we want if we cannot enjoy it. An appropriate time is in the right season when our hearts and spirit is able to fully enjoy what God wants to give us.
This phase in my life is not easy – I doubt it’s going to be any easier in the future. I know I have God as my rock and that is more than enough.
