We all need laughing buddies!

I actually overslept today. I’m not sure if it’s a good thing, but my body sure did need it. I’m actually still in the bed. I have read the Word, laughed by text with a friend (a much needed laugh… YOU NEED LAUGHING BUDDIES!!!), and now I’m wanting to share my heart with you about, well two things… 1. Facing disappointment and 2. True religion. Sounds like two completely different blogs but it will all make since in a few secs.

So my last blog we celebrated my 38th birthday, my coming out of comfortability…My walking season. Basically my John 5 moment. And I must say, it has been a good 2 weeks. My relationship with God is blossoming. I’m relearning both Him and myself. I’ve taken a lot of pressure off of myself, and learning to do the same with others(thanks to a wonderful message about friends by my pastor). Yet, at the same time I have faced a few disappointments. Some ups and downs. And the enemy wants me to be upset at God for not answering like I wanted Him to. But as my Father and friend, I choose to trust and believe His abilities to sustain my life, and trust His character…that He is FAITHFUL!

Ok, so on to religion. I asked God, “So what was the young man in John 5’s, life like after he was healed by Jesus?” I was wondering, were there bumps in the road? Struggles? Disappointments? Happiness? If you pay close attention; right after he was healed, he came into conflict with religious leaders. They basically wanted to steal Jesus’s shine. The glory of God was reflecting from this young man’s life and they were being a bunch of haters.

So I begin thinking about religion, and its reputation these days…mainly in the church. They call it a religious spirit. I believe it’s a real thing, but I also believe it works in two ways:

1. It keeps people away from God’s truth.

2. It keeps people from being truthful with God.

You see, truth is truth. There are no lies in truth. A Religious spirit has one job… To lie! That’s it! And because people are so fixated on it, they are being lied too! Now you have a watered down Gospel that glorifies wrong doing.

There is a true religion. Jesus talks about it in James 1:27,

Pure, unstained religion, according to God our Father, is to take care of orphans and widows when they suffer and to remain uncorrupted by this world.

A religious spirit offers corruption to the church. Just like those religious leaders tried to offer the young man corruption right after he was healed. They tried to corrupt the very work of God. And if you allow it too, a religious spirit can do the same to you. This is probably why Jesus told the young man,

See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you.  (John 5:14)

He needed to bring reassurance to the man, reminding him of the miracle that took place. Reassuring him that sin can take you to a place worse than you were before, if you let it. Or if you allow lies to disruption His truth.

With all of this being said, I’d like to encourage you today…. LAUGH! Laugh in the face of your enemy, who is trying to discount the Miracles of Heaven in your life. LAUGH at disappointment, though hard at the moment, do it anyway(My friend Bridgette helped me with that one. Thanks Bridge! ❤️) LAUGH at anything and anyone who would try to take God’s truth away from you…and watch them…well, watch them first feel a little stupid because you’re laughing in their FACE!! LOL!!…then watch them scurry. Like really, LAUGH OUT LOUD!!! Til your face hurts, like mine is right now!

Til next time sisters! ✌🏾

Where did the Lie Begin in Your Life

20180203_194141747746405.png

Hello sister, it’s evening and I’m hitting the sack pretty early, but before I slip into la la land, I have a question to ask…hold up let me sip some of this good ole Yogi Caramel Bedtime tea.

Ok I’m back! So, my question is where did the lies in your life begin. I ask this because you all know recently I celebrated my 38th Birthday. I took God on His offer… I got up, picked up my mat, and I’m walking now. Walking is quiet a experience, especially if you haven’t in a long time. Walking helps you to think. You hear more and see more. Many of you probably haven’t been sitting like I have…maybe you’ve been running and haven’t had the time to slow down. In the great words of Medea, “Get somewhere and SAT down!” lol!

I’ve had the opportunity in these short few days to see what’s in me…what’s around me. What belongs and what doesn’t. And I’m noticing that the things that don’t belong are all built on the same thing…a lie. Lies are life changers. I mean they are cruel…down right mean. If you believe them… IT’S OVER!! Well, that’s if you don’t correct them.

I’m correcting 30 year old lies. I ask God where it began. When He shows me, I repent for believing it over His TRUTHS, and then I hand it over to Him. It no longer has permission or authority to rule me. It’s not always easy to uproot them, but that’s why God has given us each other, to love pray and support each other.

Can you think of a specific area of your life that is rooted in a lie?

My prayer is that everyone who reads this blog will be able to see clearly any lie that has caused them to live beneath all God has created them to be. I’m thanking God for your freedom right now, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

OK, the tea is kicking in!!! Night Night😊

Hey you… Yes you

Hey you! Pay close attention.  #YouAreEnough maybe you can’t whip up the courage to believe it right now…Life threw you a curve ball this year, right? I understand. May you got divorced, separated, cheated on, lost some friends…

But don’t let that determine who “You” are! Another person’s choice or decision should not dictate who #You are. It shouldn’t make you go out and try to become something you are not. That’s what we do right?

We pile on things to make it seem like we’re accomplished, trying to prove to that person “I got it together boo”. We become this complete stranger, only to be let down more. 

We become defiant, rebellious, bitter, etc. And we feel everyone is against us, right? 

Let’s try something new. Gather yourself….and Let God transform your mind and you find yourself in him. Not the decisions of others. You can do this! #YouAreBetterThanThis It gets #Better So much better! 

Great Things are coming!!! #GreatThingsIn18

Held Back


I remember one of the most devastating times of my childhood. I missed the last part of my second grade year because of the chicken pox. Boo! But that wasn’t the devastation. All I remember was my siblings coming home on the last day of school and my mom informing me that I would be repeating the second grade. I then remember the first day of school of repeating the second grade. The fear and the embarrassment of my old classmates seeing me in the second grade hall and me seeing them in the third grade hall was a sheer nightmare. I had been held back because of my inability to learn. I was a bright kid. I loved learning, but for some reason I didn’t make the cut.

I’m just realizing how much this has effected my life. I see the pattern of my inability to learn in a specific season, only having to go back and have to repeat that season again. Being held back told me I was no good, unable, not smart enough, and inadequate. I believed it and followed suit. I pretended to be dumb at times to avoid being rejected again. I wouldn’t allow myself to be great. And years later I’m still digging myself out of the holes of these lies, and it isn’t easy.

Maybe something similar happened to you. I know it’s difficult to rewire yourself. But there is a real you. That real you has been made by God from the beginning of time since the day you were born. God has a specific plan for you, and maybe life has caused you to think differently. Cease to strive. Breathe! Relax!  Take a moment to ask God “Who am I, really?” “Who did you originally make me to be before all this happened?” Allow Him to redirect and reverse every lie; or every attempt that tries to make you less than who He has meant for you to be.

God says you are worth it! Knowing your worth gives you new eyes to see. Knowing your worth breaks every lie the enemy has spoken over you and keeps you out of sabotaging relationships. Know that your true worth is found with Christ in God. Take His paths towards finding value! #ItsWorthIt

Do something different. Currently I am making adjustments in my life. One of those things are consistency in working out regularly. For two weeks I have worked out 4-5 times a week. Today God said, “How about going running?” And of course I didn’t want to, but lately I have sensed a calling to trust over my life. Meaning if God suggests it…I do it! That includes becoming a vegetarian. He knows why, and I don’t have to know why. Following this has transformed me not just physically but spiritually. There’s freedom in being obedience and trusting God… AND freedom in switching things up and doing something different. I highly recommend it! Plus it shows everyone around me that I love Him! 😊

But I do as the Father has commanded me, so that the world may know that I love the Father. Rise, let us go from here. – John 14:31

What’s Your Mountain

“You were assigned this mountain to show others it can be moved.” – Unknown 

This quote blew my mind as I read it on a gentleman’s blog! I actually started dancing at work when I saw it. Of course it reminded me of what Jesus said in Mark 11:23, ” I tell you the truth, you can say to the mountain…” And then I begin thinking  of the mountains I face…Are they there for me to conquer, so I can help others see they can do the same? Many people don’t realize they can do something until it’s proven in the lives of others. I smile at mountains now, with plans in hand,  ready to conquer. 

What are your mountains? Let’s decided 2GetHer TODAY! We’re gonna tell it to move. And then we’re gonna show others how to do the same!!!!!
