I remember back in 2010 when I was in a situation where I was fed up. I was so frustrated and was at my wit’s end. I remember talking to one of my best friends Keitaya literally in tears. I explain to her everything that was going on. I told her because of this situation I had to drop out of school. It was very bad. Although no one around me actually knew that because I put on a smile when everyone saw me. At the end I said” I have to leave here” and I knew if I stayed I wouldn’t bring my best to the table. After I pour my frustrations out on her she later gave me a scripture.
DANIEL 10:12 NIV. THEN HE CONTINUED , DO NOT BE AFRAID, DANIEL. SINCE THE FIRST DAY THAT YOU SET YOUR MIND TO GAIN UNDERSTANDING, AND TO HUMBLE YOURSELF BEFORE YOUR GOD, YOUR WORDS WERE HEARD AND I HAVE COME IN RESPONSE TO THEM.
That scripture spoke to my soul. It reassure me that my prayer had been heard and now it time to wait on God. After she gave me that scripture I typed it up, printed it out and put it on the busiest place in my home…the fridge door lol. From that point on I stop complaining even though I was still hurting. I would leave physically and emotionally spent every time I walked in the door at home. However,I still remain faithful. I still did everything that was required of me not just because I knew in my spirit I was leaving I did because I should. I truly believed that is why in a few months time after getting that scripture I received a notice that I was being released and will be soon leaving. On that day I jumped for joy. I knew it was nothing but God and me being faithful during my storm. I encourage anyone who are going through similar circumstances to remain FAITHFUL. God looks for that.
MATTHEW 25:23 NIV HIS MASTER REPLIED ” WELL DONE, GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT! YOU HAVE BEEN FAITHFUL WITH A FEW THINGS, I WILL PUT YOU IN CHARGE OF MANY THINGS. COME AND SHARE YOUR MASTER’S HAPPINESS!’
That experience showed in many ways that God does hear our prayers he is just waiting to see if you will remain faithful to him and other things until he blesses you with more. Be encouraged my loves as well as faithful.
Hey Loves, I do realize it has been quite awhile since I blogged. Please forgive me but life has a way of distracting you lol. .What made me decide to blog today came from a television show I watch the other day. I belived it was called “Good Cooking”. This week episode feature an elder woman from the Palmer Woods part of Detroit Michigan. The host and the elder lady talk about her heritage which happened to be Creole. It was important because that explained her cooking style. This was very good episode but what stood out was when the show explained how she had worked for her husband as a office manager for years. Her husband was a psychiatric and had a booming practice until he suffered a stroke. Which made him unable to work anymore. When that happened she made a decision to go back to school and obtain her masters degree at the age of 57. Now that is what blew me away. She was motivated by her ancestors who were rich enough to not only buy back their relatives out of slavery but also run successful businesses. Her will to get her degree at the age when many people are in the process of retiring totally inspired me to not give up on my dreams, Even if I am at age when many are getting settle in the careers. I know she went back to help to make sure her family was financially secure but I am sure it was a goal of hers to get her masters. Let us all learn from this elder woman who did not let her age stop her from accomplishing a goal of hers. Life is way too short to not being doing what you love. If not that at least in the process of doing what you love. Here is a little in encouragement from Mr Steve Jobs
WOW…I cannot believe I have not blog since the end of 2011. Well I will be the first to say that 2011 was of the most emotional time of my life. If you read my last post you will understand why I stated that. However I am back and stronger than ever. Many things have changes since I wrote my last blog. My weight for one. It has been a constant struggle for me to lose weight. For one, I am an emotional eater. When I am sad…I eat. When I am happy…I eat. When boredom strikes….let me go to the kitchen and see what’s popping lol. Where it stands now I am down for my highest weight but I am nowhere near my goal. That is another blog post in itself *serious side eye*.Moving right along…although my weight has changed, relationship status, some friendships have shifted…my faith in God has not. Since 2011 I have become stronger than ever. I can now look in the mirror and see the change in myself. I feel like now my light is shining through this broken yet strong vessel. I never been so excited to go to church nor hear the word. When I read my last post I see the pain with each word. I feel the hurt with each line. Those few hundred words cannot begin to convey what I went through emotionally especially near the end of the year. Today I can look back and sing ” SO Glad I MADE IT…I MADE IT THROUGH’ a line from the song “Testimony” by Marvin Sapp. Whew..God is simply amazing. I have so much to share but for now just know that I AM BACK IN A MAJOR WAY!
BE BLESSED LOVES
