*looks in mirror*

Lord, what do you see?

I see Me. My work. My hand. My time well spent. I see your future. I see the pain. But don’t worry, it’s not in vain. I see greatness. Your life is a testimony. A story of how you overcame. You stuck with me through the pain and the heartache. You knew I’d make a way. So I gave you a new day. New mercies. Miracles. A new outlook. You had enough faith to see past your lows. You knew I was working on your behalf, so everything was good. Can I say, that I am pleased? Yes, I am very proud. You allowed me know be God. I am very proud. For this I will reward you openly. Your enemies will see my glory. No longer will you cry tears of sadness. Your heart won’t ache. I put my stamp of approval on you. I don’t make mistakes. please know That I put my good foot forward when creating you. I designed you so uniquely. An image of Me. So don’t be bothered if your misunderstood. I didn’t want you to feel comfortable. So many are compromising, but not you. I knew you wouldn’t. This is why I see remarkable. No matter what, keep that smile. It’s going to be seen and brighten many days. People will be encouraged just by one at look you. I gave you those eyes, so bright and bold. See those people hiding behind the masks they put up. Know that they are hurting and need more of Me. Give them that love thats unconditional. Let them know that I can heal their heart, like I healed yours. I know their very core. So stay deeply rooted in Me. Soon the word will get why I see what I see. I see Me. 

Supply

Lord supply.

Supply my need.

I don’t have have just one.

More like a ton.

I have the need to healed.

The need to be free.

I have the need of a higher self esteem.

The need of your presence.

The need of Your Spirit.

It’s more than the love from people.

It’s more like humbleness.

I need actually a double dose of that.

Because when they don’t call my name to recognize me for all I’ve done good, I’m ready to get hood.

Lord I need more of You in order to make it through.

I can’t fight this war in the natural.

I need Your expertise.

Lord it’s me.

Singing.

Worshipping.

Trying to Do everything right.

Its Your son. Your daughter.

Answer me please.

Lift this heavy burden.

I don’t want to feel this way.

The struggle.

The lonliness.

I need a new day.

Cause it will bring about new mercies, right?

It will bring with it joy.

I would like to smile from my heart again.

I forgot what that feels like.

Lately All of my smiles come attached with a “like.”

I wanna be set free from this marriage to society.

I tried to play by their rules, but I can’t win.

They set me up.

They sold me on a dream.

Keeping up with the next person wasn’t easy.

It was draining. Temporary. And left me poor.

The need for more kept boxes at my door.

I didn’t order clothes and jewelery online.

I actually ordered likes, compliments and envy.

Once the pics were released in media, people would want to be me.

Not knowing that my reality isn’t very glamorous.

So Lord, I tried everything in this world to feel the void. 

I sought after it all, but Your love.

All I need is You.

Im ready for more.

Send an outpouring  of Your Spirit.

I give up my will for Yours.

Supply.

Can you hear Me now?

It was 2011. I was cruising through life. Caught up in doing things my way knowing good and well I was going against God. But I was ok with this. Why? Because my God is soooo gracious. Yupp, I was doing my thing and didn’t care. I had SOME nerve!! 

So one night around 10 pm, I was chilling. The room completely dark. The room was quiet. I was alone. So I thought. All of a sudden, I  heard “don’t take advantage of My grace.” I jumped up and looked around the room. I got up and turned the light on. Looked around some more. Now, I did all of this knowing that I wasn’t going to find anyone in the room but me. I knew it was God. I sat on the bed. Thought about what I heard and immediately repented.

This would be first of many times I heard Him.

Now, I wish I could say that I got my act together right then and there. I wish I could say I became this great Christian… nope! (But thats another blog for another day)

After the moment I just told you about, years passed before I heard the voice of the Lord again. Sure, I knew His hand was on my life. Yes, I would see signs of Him being present. But He wasn’t speaking. Or was He? It wasn’t until I joined my church on a months fast in January 2016 that I began to recognize His voice. As I was fasting and praying (because they go hand in hand) I would take a moment to stop and listen. The more I tried to hear, the more I heard. Now during this time of fasting, I needed to make a decision in life and needed to know if this was Him or not. At times, I would think I heard Him , then would brush it off. Like naaaa, that was just me talking. This happened a lot during that month. Then one day I was sitting in the living and I said something (I can’t remember what) , but His response was “I’ve been speaking all along.” My mouth dropped. Clarity. This is all I wanted. To hear and recognize my Lords voice. This was a humbling experience. I wanted to cry and smile at the same time. Who was I that He would decide to visit me, sit with me, and talk. I was grateful. 

As I grew, I looked back on the event. I realized that I made myself available. I sought after and found Him. I called and He answered. As I quieted the noise around me, the volume of His increased. 

When was the first time you heard God speak? When was the last time You heard Him? Have you ever heard Him? How do you know when He is speaking?


You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
Jeremiah 29:13 NIV

Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
James 4:8 NIV

But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
John 14:26 NIV

Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
Revelation 3:22 NIV

The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord , for the Lord is about to pass by.” Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord , but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.

1 Kings 19:11‭-‬12 NIV

He’s able. 

It was a little after 12 midnight on the last day of the month of May when God woke me up. At first, I thought I was making a restroom run. But, it turned out to be a moment with God. A moment to listen. A moment to witness His greatness.

I opened my Bible app and began to scroll through John. As I read, my faith increased. I read about His miracles. I read about His love. I read about His awesome power. The power that lives in me.  

It was then that He spoke “Believe” . 
I encourage you to believe as well. God will perform on your behalf.

Slaves to a social scam (Who Are You?)

Who are you?
A person that is defined by the clothes you wear?
The latest car, latest watch, the style of your hair?
The fact that the world glorifies outward appearance is sad.
We are rated and categorized based on how well we perk our lips, raise our brow, and [snap]
You pause…
“Like”
“Like. Like. Like.”
“Like. Like. Like. Like. Like. Like”
Pops up on your screen.
You smile because this temporally raised your self esteem.
Don’t you know your worth?
Don’t you know you are a gem?
We have become slaves to a social scam.
We say “I don’t care what people think’…but are constantly worrying about what people think.
When will we realize the worlds opinion doesn’t matter.
How you feel about yourself when you look in the mirror is the only opinion that really matters.
Run away from the facade society created.
There’s more to you then the short skirt and heels.
Pick up your head, smile, and learn to love you.
You’ll never be happy if you wait for the validation of others.
You, my dear, are wonderfully and fearfully made.
You were created in Gods image.
Let me say that again….
YOU ARE WONDERFULLY AND FEARFULLY MADE.
YOU WERE CREATED IN GODS IMAGE!
The more you say it, the more you’ll believe it.
The more you believe it, the more you’ll see it.
So, Who are You?
YOU ARE a winner!
YOU ARE an overcomer!
YOU ARE a success!
YOU ARE beautiful!
YOU ARE smart!
YOU ARE a gem!
YOU ARE unique!
YOU ARE one of a kind!
YOU ARE more than a conqueror!
YOU ARE extraordinary!
YOU ARE an achiever!
YOU ARE fabulous!
YOU ARE dope!
YOU ARE kind!
YOU ARE fearless!
YOU ARE worth it!
YOU ARE worth loving!
YOU ARE more than enough!
YOU ARE destined for greatness!
YOU ARE fearfully and wonderfully made!
YOU ARE Gods masterpiece!

Know it.

Do you know love? Real love. Not lust. For this fades along with our feelings. But love holds on. Love is patient. Love is kind. Love is not scared. Love is not abusive. Love is not manipulative. Love is gentle. Love is forever. It does not make you wonder. It doesn’t bruise. It doesnt hurt. It doesn’t ache. Love is doesnt boast. Love isn’t easily angered. Love isn’t self seeking. Love protects. Love trusts. Love hopes. It never ends. Real love is only experienced when you experience Love. God is love. Know Him and you’ll know Love. 

1 John 4. 1 Corinthians 13. 

Be dope. 

​Always be dope. No, it has nothing to do with what you wear.nothing to do with how you wear your hair. It’s more than what you drive, live in, and own. But it has everything to do with how you treat your neighbors. How you love in spite of the situation…Or relation. It has everything to do with your heart. Beauty radiates from within. Being dope is about being you in a world that tells you be someone else. Be true to who God created you to be. You’re one of a kind. Created so uniquely. Walk to the rhythm of your own beat. And love that there’s only one of you in these streets. 😊 #BeDope #BeYou #BeLikeChrist #LoveLikeHimToo #Love #LoveYourself #Dope #Dopeness #Jesus #JesusSaves #Blogger #PenAndPaper #Writer #Inspiration #RandomThoughts #Encouragement

Good Father

Today while at work, I was talking to God. During our conversation, I paused. Then smiled. Then thought…What a privledge to serve a God that can be with me, tend to me, and talk to me, yet be with someone else too! When I have His attention, I have all of Him and the same when you’re talking to Him. This just amazes me! He’s an onmipresent God! 

Just thought I’d share my thoughts of Christ with you today! Thank you for reading ❤

A quick update…

Ive been MIA, huh? Yeah, I know when I started this blog, I was going through a time in life when I had to be still and just listen to God. But at the time, i didn’t really know what He sounded like. But, the more I wrote, the more I not only heard His voice, I was able to see His words. This is when I shared with the world. He spoke to me as I went through and I shared to help someone else go through. Well eventually the storm passed. A new season came. I took a break as things shifted. I wrote every now and then, but didn’t post it. For me, writing is more than an escape, it’s ministry. If my words that are God given, give hope, peace, and joy… I’m for it. If I don’t feel Him moving, I can’t post it. So as I rebuild and refocus, it’s my hope that you will be patient. When I am released to post, you will know. I will post every opportunity I get. Stay tuned and bear with me. I have one goal in life and that is to tell of Him. I love you, but Jesus loves you more! #BeBlessed #UntilNextTime
