For The Ones Who Feel Insecure

My heart goes out to those young women who simply are not satisfied with the way they look. I can relate. I used to be where you are. I didn’t like the fact that I was born with cerebral palsy, that I’m skinny, or the fact
I’m short even.

I’ve come to accept the way I am

The bible says that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. If anybody else doesn’t think you’re beautiful, God thinks your beautiful. He’s the one that created you. He didn’t make a single mistake when he made you.

And me realizing that made me accept the fact that I do have cerebral palsy, I’m skinny, and short. But once I got passed all that I can see that Jesus makes all things new. The old has passed, and the new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17).

I used to ask God why I was born with cerebral Palsy

Now I use my legs for his glory by dancing

I used to not like being skinny

But I’ve learned that it’s not always going to be this way. My body is going to change as I get older. God is more than able to do things with my body that I never thought possible. I’m truly believing him for that.

I used to not like being short

I have no true explanation for this. I’ve just learned to live it. I’m not going to get any taller, so I might as well just accept it for what it is.

I’VE LEARNED TO TRUST HIM WITH MY BODY

And if I can’t trust Him with my body, how will I ever be able to trust my future husband with my body.

You know that saying, “You can’t love someone else until you learn to love yourself?” Well, it’s true. When I was in my years of dissatisfaction I wanted revenge. I wanted people to hurt just as I did. But once I came to Christ none of that was necessary anymore. God showed me his love to pour out on
others who are just as insecure as I was.

Thankfully, the Lord has delivered me from all of that. The next time you’re feeling insecure remember God’s love for you. He loves you more than any person on Earth could ever. Trust God with your body, and he will continually honor you with his words of affirmation.

Who wants to be single on Valentines day?

Living.Learning.Sharing Every Lesson

single

I know Valentines Day is coming up and if you are single like myself this may not be an holiday you are excited to celebrate but I want to just share what God has placed in my heart! As long as I have lived I have never had a Valentines. February 14 has always been just an ordinary day I marked off my calender. I did not take notice of this until I became a bit older and begin desiring love. Valentines Day was never a sad experience for me, until I begin focusing on the wrong thing! I use to think having a Valentines meant you finally met someone who was so madly in love with you they could not help but shower you with romance. Boy was I so wrong! Both the loving and unloving, madly in love, crazy in love,….even drunk in love celebrate Valentines day. However…

Valentines Day Realization

For the past week and this one as well I have been reading a book called What Are You Waiting For? by Dannah Gresh. I had just finished it last night. So in honor of valentines Day I would to share with you all something that has caught my eye that would be appropriate for this special day.

It is within the book of the 14th chapter entitled Finding Yada. For those of you who don’t know, here’s what yada means:

Yada is a Hebrew word that means to know, to be known, to be deeply respected

but I would encourage you to buy the book to get the full meaning of it.

This chapter covers about finding yada, about knowing if someone is “the one”. Dannah gives us five points as determining if someone is and in fact “the one”.

*Gave Himself Up for Her
* Washing of Water with the Word
*Having No Spot or Wrinkle
*Nourishes and Cherishes

Gave Himself Up for Her to be a complete gentleman like opening doors for you, pulling out chairs for you, and all around is just respectful of you.

Washing of Water With the word– to have a relationship with your guy that instead you being alone by yourself reading the bible he’ll be right there reading it with you. I believe this guy is suppose to encourage is girl to be in her word everyday whether she feels like it or not. He’ll want to share his love of the word with you.

Having No Spot or Wrinkle-Ladies, if you’re serious about your purity and protecting it he’ll make sure he won’t get in the way of that. He won’t follower the world’s definition of purity, but he will follow and pursue God’s definition of what purity is.

And lastly, he will nourish and cherish you. This also means to feed and care for you. Hell want to take of you in every way. This point is pretty much self explanatory.

Don’t you see it?

God

Gave himself up for you
He has given you his word
He is coming for a bride with no spot or wrinkle
Everyday he nourishes and cherishes you

God

He loves you

And even if Valentines Day was to disappear off of the face of our calendars his love will always be here. He loves you with an undying love. If it’s his will for you to be married, he’ll make that happen. And he’ll make sure that the man you are marry has these qualities as well. Be serious about God before you ever become serious about a man. Your man should be a reflection of who God is. Until he comes along allow yourself to accept the fact that

God is your husband first before any man

he has given himself up for you
He wants to wash you with his word
He is coming for a bride with no spot or wrinkle
Everyday he nourishes and cherishes you

He loves you
Happy Valentines Day ❤

No greater love

Purposed Cry

I woke up crying before, I cry when God gives me a revelation, I even cry when I don’t know what that revelation is, I also cry when God gives me some unexpected news. Last night I believe I discovered something that I actually didn’t want to believe, but believed it at the same time. I cried last night and God wouldn’t allow me to go to sleep until I received what he was trying to tell me. I kept trying to go to sleep, but it kept coming up in my spirit. I believe that was God’s way of saying, “My purpose will prevail in your life, it’s going to come to pass, all I need you to do is receive it.”

If I’m giving Up On God I’m Giving Up On His Promise If I Give Up On His Promise I’m Giving Up On The Purpose Attached To It

Yesterday’s moment was not an easy moment for me. The moment was brought up prior to yesterday; I couple of months ago. A couple of months ago I cried about it, but yesterday I left the situation and stood on what God had told me regarding a promise. I didn’t shed a tear.

I wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t explain myself. In 2011 I found out something I didn’t want to find out. By isolationg myself from the news God had let me know something was important for me to hear. So that’s the reason why I’m still enduring with what God promised me. A couple of days after that I had gotten confirmation from God, through my pastor, saying the same thing that God had told me while he was preaching. And I believe from that day
on I was going to stand on what God had said. Now almost three years later I’m still standing, I may have doubted (that’s a part of a testimony), but I’m still standing. Now I know what the purpose is attached to this promise that God is going to give me. And now that I know about that purpose I was thinking of that purpose when the situation had come.

This morning I asked myself this question:
Why would I give up when I know the truth?

If I’m giving up on god I’m giving up on his promise if I give up his promise I’m giving up on the purpose attached to it.

This may sound crazy but because of what God told me, like I stated before, I’m still enduring. That day in 2011 I was going to leave the promise. Now because I know the deeper truth to the promise I’m in a deeper imprisonment
(in a good way) to trust God even more. When you have truth of God, why would you leave? Why would you give up? Endure because all of God’s promises are yes and amen. It seems like the more deeper I go the more truth I get and the more truth I get the more I’ll be tested. The more I get tested the more I’ll be able
to perservere and not by swayed. The same goes for you my family don’t give up.
