You Can’t Get There Sitting Down…Get Up!!!

Where should I start? I’m here on the couch in the dark counting down the hours… The hours until my 38th Birthday! You can’t believe it, and neither can I! Two years from 40? Daaaaaaannnnng! Every year I try to hear from the Lord… at least the night before. But this year He spoke to me earlier.

Jesus told him, “Stand up, pick up your mat, and walk!” (John 5:8)

Of course I go and Google…. Scripture on pick up your mat and walk. I’m led to John 5, the story of the man at the pool of Bathesda, who for 38 years struggled to get himself in the waters that could heal him. Why? Because he had no one to help him get in, and people just went ahead of him. But one day Jesus came on the scene and asked him, gosh, the most beautiful question anyone would want to hear

Do you want to be made whole? (John 5:6)

The man’s reply,

I can’t, I have no one to help me… (John 5:7)

There was only one time I could remember getting a little ticked at a Word from God. WHAT IN THE WORLD DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH ME????

I love God! That’s a promise. I’ll be honest though, for the past year He’s had to convince me that I’m not his unloved stepchild. Act like you don’t know! It’s been a lonely and difficult year for me physically and spiritually. I actually wanted to quit ministry and live a normal life. I’m talkin’ `bout; go home to my momma, move into my old room; find a job; and marry someone in that town, raise a family and call it a life. Who cared? God did!

In showing me this Scripture, He told me, “Angel, do you want to be made whole? I had every complaint from fear, to friends abandoning me, to not knowing my future. His reply,” Stop looking for people to help you.” Let me help you.”

He began to show me how He knows I have given so much to everyone, even reminding me of a dream I once had where everyone was drawing and taking from me. I had all this gold, and when they took it all, all I had left was this old anchor. Now was that time! He is my Anchor. He said “It’s time for you to depend on Me. Completely and wholeheartedly.” His next words pierced me to the core:

You will not go into 38 lame!!!

That man was 38 years old. For 38 years he sat by that pool waiting for someone to help him get in. People had no concern about him…they wanted healing too! It took Jesus, the Healer, to let him know that He saw him, and he was no longer going to sit by some pool to get what only God could truly give him. It’s not that Jesus didn’t care about his feelings. But the man needed to know that he could have what he asked for if he only believed. When the man said, “I can’t”, Christ said, “I can” “Now, Get up, pick up your mat, and walk.” And the man…well, he did. He just got up!

So, for the past few days I have been getting up…walking! Letting go of things. Stripping off weights. I’ve stopped looking at the phone and waiting for people to call. I’ve been forgiving people of their faults. I’ve been leaning on my Anchor, not others, and not myself. It feels good. At times scary….you know when you first start walking, it’s a little wobbly, but I’m walking.

My prayers for my birthday, to you my beautiful sisters is this:

That this year you get up, pick up your mat, (any place of comfortability), and walk. You have so much in life to do. You can’t get there sitting down. You’re a child of God. His blessings await you! Just…Get Up!

I See You

I see you Angel. I see you and I ask “What happened to the sparkle in your eyes?” I see you and I ask, “What happened to that innocent smile?” Pain has pierced you. Rejection has ripped you. But you are still here. And I say, “I see you.” Yes, people have used you. Some may have abused you, but YOU Are Still Here. Some think they know you, others have ignored you, but YOU ARE STILL HERE! And I see you!!! I see you through God’s eyes. I see you through broken dreams. I see you through heartache and I see you through unseen tears. I see you! 

You are STRONG and you are SIGNIFICANT! You are PURE and you are PERSISTENT!  You are CARING and you are very very COURAGEOUS!  You always know how to bounce back! You are a Finisher and you are a Warrior. You were born to win…born in a womb of VICTORY! I SEE YOU!!! You have always been there! 😊 


Worry gets you no where! I’m on a journey where I’m working out those big kinks in my life. The things I’ve held on for far too long. And we know those can both be frightening and hard to loose, and can cause us to not go through the process, but fear not, God is with us. If you struggle with worry, understand that the spirit behind that is anxiety or fear, and we all know “God hasn’t given us a spirit of fear.” (2 Timothy 1:7) . It doesn’t belong to you. Don’t carry what’s not yours. I often get on people when they say, “My diabetes” “My stress”  “My depression” it is not yours. If you continue to claim it, it will attach itself to you. Remember power is in our mouth! Anxiety and worry are not yours sis! Cast them down where they belong and let Jesus help you! Remember you are not in this alone. I’m here to help.

Welcome to my Spot 


Black Coffee mug and Muffins

Heyyy! I just wanted to say WELCOME to all my first time visitors! I am so excited about taking this Journey 2gether! I know you don’t know me from a hill of beans, but hey, I’m in this for the long hall! So let’s journey!

Welcome to my place

I love themes!! If there were a common theme or statement when it comes to anyone visiting my home, no matter where I have lived, this comes to mind, “Wow! Your place is so comfortable and peaceful.” That being said, I want to make sure you are comfortable. This Blog is made specifically with you in mind. It’ll be like we are chillin at my place; i just made some real good coffee; pulled the throws from out of the front room hamper; and we are about to get our talk on; eat; maybe watch a movie. Do you need me to adjust the temperature for you, because I don’t mind! Life is meant to be done together, so what’s up girlfriend?

What is this Blog about?

The best thing I have ever done was allowed God to bring great women around me to do life 2gether. And now that I have moved to the big, beautiful city of Charlotte, and I am no longer around my buddies, I can tell the difference. Yes, they are only a phone call away, but there’s nothing like heading over to one of their homes and just talkin and hangin. I miss them so much! Life seems a tad lonely now, but thankfully I understand that this season of my life is about me and Him. Like you, I am on a journey to finding out all that I am in Christ. And I can’t do it alone. Would you like to join me?

Okay, well, come on in! Pull off your shoes and relax! We won’t always meet in my home, we’ll find a great spot to hang and discuss life 2gether. We’ll see what God desires for us concerning every day life, and even pray together. More than anything, I hope you enjoy this blog. You can even invite your friends too. Allow me to be your big sister, of sorts, and let’s do life 2gether. You ready? Let’s Journey!

Your sis,                                                                                                                                                                   Angel
