Where I work, there is a lot of communicating: through phone, email, fax, scan and even through snail mail. The other day, I emailed one of my suppliers in Boston about a receipt that I didn’t receive. And his response was “Yeah I sent it the other day, but, I will resend it to you in the morning.” That BUT killed me. As I looked at the email I had said to myself very modest: given the fact, apparently I didn’t get the receipt, there is no need to even say he sent it. Right?
“God help us. We must break out of the boxes of our normality and dare to go close to those we don’t understand. We must not use words like, “those people” with pointed fingers, hard hearts and spiritually superior attitudes. By going close, we see things we need to see. We hear things we need to hear. And our hearts become tender in the way we must be tender. God help us. Instead of running alongside people seeking to understand them, we sometimes have tendencies to run them
Not too long ago, my 15 year old niece said something to me that was a marked impression. “Maybe you are too picky.” Now, this was after I had told her I had another man in my life. _______________________________________________________________________________ Background: Now, I have always been the type of girl/woman to invite the guy I am dating to family functions, dinners, celebrations etc. just because we are a bunch of folk that like to have a good time! We are an eati
I really didn’t sign up for this, is my initial thinking. I shake my head as I somehow try to keep my head above water. During the day I gasp for air, sometimes thinking I am drowning in my situations & circumstances. So much has happened in the course of 1 year. I look back and I wonder when did all of this start to happen? Everything seemed like it came on at once. How do I juggle? First I gulped down a truthful statement: ‘…when someone has been given much, much will be re
…because of what He did 2000+ years ago, we all have the ability to LIVE. Such an amazing feeling to know He laid down His life for the sake of ours, so we don’t have to DIE in the filth we are in. “FOREVER I remember the price that You paid…” #GoodFriday #Jesus #Savior #Cross #Savior #Death #Crucified #CrownofThrones #love #Christ #Messiah #God #Resurrection #Jesus #Jehovah #GoodFriday #Burial
I got to a point where I said “I really can’t do this anymore”. I couldn’t do this life. I was tired of not fitting in, tired of the ‘fakeness’ around, tired of emotional bondage. Tired of broken promises from people, tired of the lies, tired of the games. I was really tired of selling myself short, not knowing what was what, who was who. I was tired of being blinded by people, couldn’t tell the real from the fake and couldn’t show me their true face. I was tired of the ulter
I wrote this on Monday and posted it to my Google Plus profile. But decided to share to my blog. #ChristLife #HappyLife ~ Today I woke up so happy, so blessed and just elated. For this season in my life, I am completely and totally free. I love where I am at right now, and I can say truly I never been in this place before. I feel so comfortable doing me. I love God. I love my life. I am utterly doing what I want to do with my life, my ambition and goals drive me to where I wa
As I saw this on Facebook this morning, I got a jump in my spirit. For me to write a quickie on His (God’s) timing. In a microwaveable society, we are some eager creatures. Everything, instantaneous. Success, Love, Wealth, Money. We want it NOW. And not then. Now and not later. Because we think when we pray, God is the genie in our lives. And he snaps his finger, and your prayers are instantaneously answered. But those who really know God, knows He doesn’t work that way. One
Everyone that knows me probably know when it comes to driving in Atlanta, I have probably the lowest tolerance for it. I just really don’t have the patience for ‘non-drivers’ and seems like encounters with bad drivers only happens to me in Atlanta. So, before I yell and scream from behind the wheel of my car, I take a HUGE breath and hum a tune. Might sound crazy but I really do that. And I am working on it, daily. I knew I was growing in the Word when one day I let a lady wh
“and you’ve become a new person. This new person is continually renewed in knowledge to be like its Creator.” – GODS WORD Translation Colossians 3:10 I guess, what you call it is re-inventing. I wouldn’t say I am re-inventing myself, I am just embracing the life God has called for me. Embracing my walk as a saved woman. Embracing my life for what it is now. No more trying to live for other people, especially for their approval. With that said, this blog will be “RE-INVENTED”.
I remember, I prayed to God that I would have enough money to not live paycheck to paycheck. That I would not give another generation in my family a chance to live above their means, but to be able to live within them and have more. I asked God for his instruction on what to do and how to live so I wouldn’t be able to do that. I prayed to Him for this. This was a priority of mines. To be able to live in abundance and his favor, to be the lender and not the borrower. But I fin
Nothing is wrong with waiting on your promise. But don’t get fixated on just THAT PROMISE. God has promised us so much more, that we just can’t wait around for that 1 promise to manifest, and skip the other promises like they don’t matter. He has everything under control. I was riding in the car today and God spoke to me regarding this. #God #GodsPromises #HisPromises
Celibacy, eh? Yes, celibacy. Some people don’t believe, but yes, this is a decision I made for myself. I always viewed that this would be a tough thing to do, especially having sex before. I always thought that I wouldn’t be able to keep a guy if I told him that I wanted to be celibate. Men have told me, ‘there is no way you will be able to get/keep a guy and not having sex with him’. But I really wanted to be able to prove them wrong. This is why I was probably more overjoye
