When Will It End? Part 1

I will praise Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are Thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Psalm 139:14 (KJV)

Your beauty, I created.

Me, your Lord.

But you choose to worship idols and claim to be flawed.

I can’t understand why you use this word.

You put My work down that I made.

You curse and flaunt your false beauty.

Creating a duplicate piece.

Remember that the duplicate never holds as much worth as the original masterpiece.

You hold yourself up to the next man or woman.

All the while, they look at you in the same manner.

When will it all stop.

When will you all see that your beauty can’t be reproduced.

I didn’t make them like you, nor did I make you them.

So stop throwing shade at yourself.

Putting yourself down.

Every time you do, I frown.

Why?

Because with every negative though, you come in agreement with the devil.

Who puts these idols and false Gods directly in front of you.

This is why so many are denying my gospel.

The hoop.

The holler.

The “dressed for the gawds”

And you look at Me for more income just to spend it on that Benz.

Your lights are off and your every bill is due.

Was it worth keeping up with the false Gods?

You claim to “put a praise on it” for your miracle to come.

But what you don’t know is that isn’t how I flow.

Get into My Word, my dear child.

Give it a rest.

I see you’re weary and Me, i’m unimpressed.

Realize that the abundant life I came to give you wasn’t for show.

I came hoping you’d carry My glow.

The abundant life has more to do with than just fame.

No, it’s falling to your knees and proclaiming My name.

“My glory will be shown through them”, was my first thoughts when I made you.

But you took that glory and now My Word is being fulfilled through you.

Not in the way that I wanted.

But men will be lovers of themselves.

Yeah, that part.

So how far will you go all in the name of fashion?

Your gaining this world and loosing your salvation.

Love yourself 

You don’t allow people to talk to you any kind of way, so don’t talk to yourself any kind of way. Love yourself. Lift yourself up. Encourage yourself. Life and death is in your mouth. Produce life. #OperationMe #LoveYourself

This Thing Called Religion 

The only life that I want to live is a life that’s pleasing to Christ.One filled with malice, maliousiness, twofaceness, and hate just isn’t right. The life that I live on social media must match my reality. That’s important to me. Some say, Jess you take this thing to seriously. No, I act like this “thing” is important to me. I rather be known as the prayerful, loving, Jesus giving girl. Then the one that cursed someone without a care. Maybe if enough of us took this “thing” a little more seriously, the hurt and lost would be more willing to listen. But right now, all they see is the church being the world’s equal. Instead of the church without a spot or a wrinkle.
Give Jesus. The people need Him. 

I’ll forever Claim That You’re Still Good

Dear heavenly Father,
I come before You interceding for Your people. Someone is going through. Someone is having a hard time. Someone is down. But I come before You, God knowing that nothing that we face, is too big for You. Nothing that we face is too hard for You to fix. Nothing that has happened or is happening is news to You. You hold our world in Your hands. You know our endings from our beginning. You are a good Father. Help us to look beyond our fears, hiccups, and pain and push to give You the praise in the midst of it. Help us to worship from a deeper place. Help us to honor You with the fruit of our lips. Help us to hold on to Your word knowing that it won’t return void. Many things will change in this world, but one thing is guaranteed, You will remain the same. No matter what is going on, You remain good. No matter how we feel, You remain good. No matter the test, You remain good. In lack, You’re good. In sickness, You’re good. In sadness, You’re good. In the midst of the storm, You’re good. You’re good when all is going well and we will claim the same when we hit a trial. Lord, how mighty are You. Your thoughts and ways are higher than ours. Give us the patience that we need for you to complete a perfect work in us. Give us the joy that will be our strength. Give us the endurance to remain in the race. Give us the peace that will surpass all understanding. Give us Your Word, for it is true and dependable. We will forever give You the praise and the glory. In Jesus Name. Amen. 

I see Me.

*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 to 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.

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

Sharing Is Caring

Lord, I just want to share the beauty of Your love with everyone I encounter.

May Your words spoken through me kiss their soul.

May Your Spirit smother every hurt, every pain.

Bring a peace that will flow like a river and wash every fear and doubtful thought away.

Encamp around them through  their daily journeys.

May the dipstick of their joy read “full”.

And Your comforting power bring that racing mind to a complete stop.

 

That’s all.

As I grow

I do realize that I am a rare beauty (no I’m not laying on the horn lol), but The most beautiful thing about me is that I have a heart for God. Living a life that pleases Him is important to me and I strive for excellence when it comes to my walk. I am challenged daily to strengthen my walk with Him. Although I may slip up and fall at times, I am wholeheartedly pressing towards the mark for the prize of the high calling ( Philippians 3:14). In doing so there has to be a constant renewing of my mind (Romans 12:2). I can’t expect to move forward in newness when I am partaking in the old. My old self has died and been made new in Christ. How can a young believer stay pure? By living according to the word (Psalms 119:9).

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

When I look into the mirror, what do I see?
A woman that’s put together so wonderfully.
I was phenomenally made by God.
Yes, cheerfully He created a masterpiece to display.
For His work to speak of His goodness each day.
Let His greatness be seen in me
May my life be rich in favor for all to see.
I could really care less about what people think about me;
I cant allow their words to determine my destiny.
For me to become enslaved to the words of society,
would be a total disappointment to the One who created me.
I walk with confidence because I know Who holds my future.
I’m on a quest.
I’m on a mission.
Lord, use me.
