Self Control

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


Words of Affirmation ’18

Hello everyone. Once again hope you are having a great start to your new year. If not – the year is just getting started so there is room to grow. My church from college used to have this thing called words of affirmation. Each Sunday, we would all stand and say the same words out loud. Speaking things into existence can bring many blessings. It is true – there is life and power in the tongue. I’m going to share my affirmation with you all. You can say mine or create your own. Here goes!

2018 will be a year of excellence and provision for my life. Everything that I worked hard for last year is finally coming together. I will reap the harvest of all the labor I put in. 

There will be an increase in blessings for myself and those around me. All my needs will be covered and if I want something and it goes with  scripture – it shall also be given to me. 

I realize I cannot help anyone if I’m not in order; I will cater to my well-being and spirit so I can be a blessing to others. I will make sure my spirit, physical, and spiritual health is fully charged. If it is not – I will do what I can to make things right.

I am excited to see what is store for this year and I know God will be my father, provider, counselor, and nurturer.
