Stay Calm

The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm. (NLT) ( Exodus 14:14 )

When you find yourself full of despair and hopelessness, look to God. When everyone around you says it can’t be done, it’s not worth your energy, or you have too much to lose; Do not allow your obstacle to appear larger than what God can handle. Remember God is greater than the obstacle at hand. Have faith in Him and He will fight the battle for you.

Those Who Endure

We give great honor to those who endure under suffering. For instance, you know about Job, a man of great endurance. You can see how the Lord was kind to him at the end, for the Lord is full of tenderness and mercy. (NLT) ( James 5:11 )

Sometimes a course in your life extends further than planned and leaves you with an empty tank. It can be exhausting even to the point of near tearful surrender. But remember what James says that you will be honored for your endurance. Keep on patiently enduring and remember to emphasize the treasures in life as those blessings will fill your empty tank.

Fashion Show Alert…about Sunday!!!😊👗

Well if you read this blog, you know that I was preparing myself for a fashion show Sunday past. My anxiety was sky high, and my nerves were in my stomach. I wanted to just pass out. My dress was cute, the venue was fab, and all of my friends were there…including my sister. I stepped into the place and just had to catch my breath. I couldn’t believe I had signed up for this shit, lol! I’m not ready to come out of the anxiety closet yet!!! My hubby was very supportive and did a lot of encouraging me before time. I was breathing so heavy, I had to stand outside and catch my breath. Can you believe last year this time I was a fucking basket case. I didn’t know if I was coming or going. My soul was dark and cloudy like my mind. Well….needless to say the fashion show was a success and I did the damn thing.!! I gathered my nerves together, with the help of my ladies in the group and my friends and walked out fabulous. I felt like the old confident, Diva 👨‍🎤 me!!! It was amazing…I can’t thank Diamonds and Pearls enough for allowing me into the group. They were very welcoming and just took me in! My friends cheered me on and it ended up becoming a fun night. I did all of my breathing exercises and decided it was all or nothing. So here are a few pics from the night…chat soon!!!

Stronger Than You Think

The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure. (NLT) ( 1 Corinthians 10:13 )

Temptations can range from seemingly harmless distractions to life threatening addictions and everything in between. Where does yours fit in? The irony is that this one thing that is so personal to you is a struggle for many others too. Remember that you are not alone in many ways. Trust in God and lean on Him for the strength to overcome them each day. Only He can make you stronger than you think.

30 Days of Gratitude Day: 14

Gd early morning, I’m up and ready to start my day! Ok…I’m still laying in the bed, but you get the idea! Lol!! My mind is awoke, but my body is staying comfy under my blankets. I don’t have much work today, so that gives me a chance to be creative. This is my birthday week (birthday on Sunday), so I’m getting prepared for my trip to Texas. I’m so thankful this year that I have some extra funds to travel. The last time I was there was bitter since it was the court date for my son. So this time we are celebrating me and eating thanksgiving dinner really early, I wanted to make sure his last couple of months at home were good. It still breaks my heart that he has to go to jail, but I know that God will see him through. I just know there is something good coming out of this, oh well not going to dwell on that now. Anywho…so I’m ready to get up and get to shopping. So hope you all have the best Tuesday and stop and ask yourself, “what are you thankful for today”!? Chat soon…

Great Treasure

We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves. (NLT) ( 2 Corinthians 4:7 )

The light shining in our hearts is the news that Jesus Christ is our Lord. We are charged with the task of showing the world how Christ has changed us. However, when we show these great abilities over time, it is easy to get puffed up and think we are the ones who are responsible for the greatness. Rather, it is important to stay connected to God and always remember He is the ultimate source of power.
