I’m married to Jesus. I may not have a ring on my left hand, but we both have out hearts to show we love one another. When he proposed to me he got on a cross, and not on one knee. I didn’t wear a dress and he didn’t where a tux, but on the day of our wedding was me accepting his love. Forever us.
I feel really good today. I was sad yesterday because of a situation I’m going through. You know what I did? I spoke over mind, and today I feel great! This is my second time ever doing this. It really works when you speak over yourself. I can speak the promises of God over my life everyday, but if I can’t take authority over the enemy over the battle of my mind something is wrong.
If I can’t take authority it’ll be like God didn’t deliver me in the first place. If god hadn’t of delivered me I’ll be trying to take authority over something I don’t possess myself. But since I do have that authority I have to take advantage of it. 2 Corinthians 10:3-6
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient Christ. And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete.
It’s important speak to yourself when you’re faced with a situation that the enemy is trying to trap you in. So instead of me getting worked up about or crying about the situation I spoke to my mind and [basically] told it to sit and be still.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will. -Romans 12:2
I would have posted over the past couple of days, but I’ve been dealing with a particular situation for a couple of weeks now.
If you don’t know this right now God is your GPS to get you to where you need to go.
God had a word for me, I received it, and now he’s leading me to my destination. I have the green light to go.
So far it’s been exciting and stressful.
Starting off, I was excited! Like, “is this really happening?” Yes it is. But it was one thing I knew I had to do was to tell my mom about the plans that I have, without going into much detail.
I was worried, but she understood.
A couple of days after that I had finally confessed to God that I was scared, but I also thanked him for believing in me.
Ya’ll know after a talk with God everything is fine and you know that he’s got you. The next day I was believing God for my strength, strength to keep going towards my destination.
As the days went on these certain thoughts were in my mind. These thoughts were so in my mind that I cried, I thought about giving up, and I had to give myself some encouragement. The enemy also had me feeling like I wasn’t good enough.
And so the next day I asked God if I have any doubt or unbelief I asked if he would take it away ‘cause I’m not going into my promised land with doubt, fear, or unbelief because I can’t go in with it.
The Lord definitely answers prayers because my sister and I had a very encouraging talk about how the Lord is ordering our steps. God knew I needed that. I came out of that talk feeling more light and confident.
It went from how God is ordering our steps, confession, encouragement, and how God’s word is so true.
Ending this I would just like to let you know that whenever you are down God will give you encouragement for your situation. He’s done it plenty of times for me, and he can do the same for you.
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.
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…

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?
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
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 ❤
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.

Be Able To Give An Answer When Believing God
Yesterday I was asked a question about a promise I’ve been believing God for, for like 2 years now. The question went something like this:
What if you never……..?
My response in the end was I know what I know.
Then, today I was thinking of this scripture:
1 Peter 3:15 [NIV]
But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect…
And just like I should give an answer as to why I have the hope I have, I also feel like this can be applied to our everyday lives, by explaining why I believe who I believe when he tells me something. I should be able to explain why I believe God when he makes me a promise.
Before that particular verse Peter writes about threats in doing good for the Lord. In the verse before that it reads:
But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear their threats, do not be frightened.”
So if I can’t give an answer as to why I believe in God and why I serve him; what I’ve been doing for almost three years is in vain. But the thing is, is that its not. I have several reasons why I serve him:
He showed me love when I didn’t know how to show love to myself
He delivered me
He has given me hope and a future
I know who I am in Him
He’s still working on me
Even when I wasn’t suppose to be here I’m here
His word is true
His love is true
He has resurrected
I have one on one access to him everyday
It’s a relationship, not religion
When I messed up he always put me right back on track
He’s not going to let me go back to my old life!
What others may see as a disability he has used it for his glory!
I believe he loves to encourage me ❤
And the list goes on and on!
And just like this list I had made, I made a list as to why I believe God regarding his promise to me.
There are a lot of reasons on the list, but the one true reason is because of God.
Trust me, that may have sounded cliché-ish but it's true if ya'll knew what I know.
All the adversary, tears, loneliness, questions, and lies are so worth it.
I have a truth that the longer I have waited the more the truth to this promise comes out. The truth of God's promise for my life is not declining, but it is progressing…Oh, how beautiful it is! I love it!
When God finally does decide to give the promise to me I'll be able to say that what God said has come to pass.
Times of people questioning you or not believing you will come. You have the responsibility to stand on what God told you, and do it without being ashamed.
James 1:2-4 [NIV]
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
Can I just express what’s on my mind? Well, after hearing yesterday that a woman tried to take her own life…it just hurts. It made me think of how I used to be regarding thoughts of suicide. I never attempted it, but at the same time I knew I had a purpose. If you or someone you know is thinking of suicide get them help quick! I’m telling you it’s not worth it taking your own life. Lucky for me I got God’s help. Like I have a purpose in life, you have one too. Don’t say goodbye to life all because it seems tough. But even when it’s tough there where always come relief, and the opportunity for relief. You have the power to take care of your thoughts and what you do with them that leads to action.
