When I am feeling particularly defeated, I listen to “You Can’t Stop Me” by Andy Mineo. It’s also a great work out song! It’s main message is one I need to hear over and over again. •
One thing I know to be true about myself, and what I believe to be true about others is this. We don’t always give ourselves enough credit when it comes to why our life isn’t going the way we say we want it to go. That nasty four letter word, FEAR, stops us from pursuing Gods best plans for us. •
I have seen this meme floating around for a while that says , “If you believe you have ruined Gods plans for you, you are not that powerful.” I get its meaning. It’s well intentioned meaning. And at times it gave me a sense of peace. But it’s not completely true. Our free will makes us powerful enough to not accomplish Gods plans for us. If I decided out of fear to not start this page for example, which almost happened, I wouldn’t have reached those I have for God. The words, “Nobody cares what you have to say”‘almost got the best of me. •
One of the verses in the song goes like this, “Well if I listen to you, everything you put in my ear. I’d be living like could’ve, should’ve, would’ve, I’d be paralyzed by fear.” •
I believe with all my might it is never too late to get back on track with God. As long as there is breath in our lungs it’s not too late! But some of us waste so much precious time being held hostage by fear. It keeps us from doing our part to step out in faith and live out Gods plans for our lives. I am my own worst enemy most of the time. I’m done doing Satans work for him! •
“Dear God, Thank you for being a God that has plans for my life that far exceed what I can dream up. I want those plans for my life and I’m sorry for any part I have played in getting in the way. I am ready now God and I believe it’s not too late with you! But God you know my fears, you know my worries, you know my doubts. Please Lord help me listen to you from this moment forward more than I listen to lies. In Jesus name, Amen”
To be set free means to be live according to Gods principles not the behaviors we justify to be "good". Our good does not compare to Gods righteousness. So until we realize our sins, will be prisoners of this world. A world ran by evil. Choose today to be "freed indeed"! #seekinghimfirst#truestory#jesuslovesme
Happy Tues-YAY 💜
In case you are still awake and need to be reminded tonight...YOU are SO awesomely and unconditionally LOVED by your FATHER in heaven and every part of who you’ve been, who you are, and who you’ll become MATTERS to HIM!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
I totally bribed sweet Jesus 😽 onto the mat by giving him treats...he actually loves lounging around on my @liforme mat and being petted, but training cats to do what you want is tough!! He does a better job of training me!
For day 2 of #kissyouradoptedpet , share any heart opener and what you love about your pet. I love cuddle time with Jesus. I was feeling pretty isolated when I got him. I had just finished up a series of long work trips and was disconnected from my life in Miami and not dating anyone. Jesus transformed my life with his love! It felt so good to not be alone....he needed quite a bit of medical care when I got him, and as he felt better and better he became so affectionate! I love coming home to Jesus...he always comes to meet me at the door, rubbing up against me and purring, and he sleeps in bed with me. We cuddle before bed, he loves to be brushed, and we cuddle again first thing in the morning when I hit snooze. And throughout the day as well! He’s helped me open up so much! If anyone is lonely, I highly recommend adopting a pet🦁
I’m really enjoying learning about your pets! Keep sharing 🐾💕. .

Day 3 - I typically gauge how I am doing based on how hard the enemy attacks me. I posted that I was going to head off on this journey and immediately started doubting myself. Never doubted the process of dating Jesus. My spirit is saying yes ma’am you got this. But the enemy started saying if you post it people will think you are doing it for attention. If you post this people will think you are phony. If you write about Jesus people will think you are using him. So I kept going but I didn’t post. I kept it to myself out of fear of judgment but I kept going. And the more i spoke to God the clearer his voice has been. And I could here Him say... people might judge you but 1 may become curious about who I am. People may think you are doing it for attention but 1 may pay attention to Me. People may think you are using Me but 1 may see I am using you. People may think you are phony but 1 may see I am real. I kept going and he kept reminding me he is seeking the 1. So today I start posting again in obedience of the Lord. Praying and hoping that 100 days of posts peaks one person’s curiosity. Praying and finding comfort that 1 person may pay attention to His message. Praying and finding peace in the fact he is using me for 1. He does it all for 1. He never leaves the 1. He never gives up on the 1.
The enemy attacks because I was one the right path. But the enemy forgot he is mere dust compared to my God.
Patience is something I have been forced to learn. I do not know many people who genuinely enjoy waiting on or for things. If that’s you let me know:)
Learning to wait has everything to do with learning how to develop one of the least talked about fruits of the Spirit: PATIENCE.
Patience reveals our faith in God’s timing, His omnipotence, and mostly His love.
Although most people consider patience to be a passive waiting or gentle tolerance, most of the Greek words translated “patience” in the New Testament are active, robust words. Look at Hebrews 12:1: “Therefore since we also are surrounded with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily besets us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us” (NKJV). The word translated “patience” in this verse means “endurance.” A Christian runs the race patiently by persevering through difficulties. Patience is persevering towards a goal, enduring trials, or expectantly waiting for a promise to be fulfilled. Are you waiting well? I hope I am:)💕
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1. Lately I must admit I’ve been a little hard on myself. Beating myself up because I am not where I expected to be at my age. Who made up these expectations anyways? When I look around at everyone around me.. everyone seems to have it all together. While it seems like I’m just starting...over. But I have to choose to stay positive. I have to choose to believe that God Still has a plan for me. Even though I may not see it right now...And He has a plan for you too. Faith... is the Substance... of things Hoped for...the Evidence of things Not seen.
This will preach! Are you hanging on to something that if you were to just let go it would be not only be better it would be best?
I held on to my last gig as long as I could. I was afraid to believe what I saw was truth. I was invested in a big way. My family and friends poured into my dream. But it was something I could not shake. Something wasn’t right. I was afraid to walk away. I was afraid to face the doubters. I was afraid to make a change...again. This was supposed to be the Dream. The second I walked away a thousand pounds flew off my shoulders. I was immediately released! I knew I had made the best decision and that something better would come my way.
Sometimes you have to let go of what’s just “good” and go for the “best”! Live your best life with integrity, love and a sound mind. I love that because I released myself from the past I was able to embrace my future. A life of empowering and helping people become financially free, living their best life. And its all because of a tiny little dry nail polish strip!
