With so much going on in the world I’d like to share this encouraging fact:
Jesus loves you! ❤️
Blog Post –
The month of August for the past 3 years were often filled with grief. Losing my grandmother the day before my 19th birthday was quite horrific. However I’ve grown to accept that this happened and that God allowed it to happen. August may never be the same but that’s ok, because change is good. The same way that our world may never be the same or go back to the normal that we all have hoped for over the past (almost) 2 years, it’s ok if it doesn’t go back to what we want it to be. The truth is scary things happen, and unfortunately it’s still happening, but fortunately we are all coping with it together in Christ as the body of Christ. So know that everything is not going to go back to normal, because… Well, normal is impossible with the circumstances we are facing in this world. But it doesn’t mean that it won’t get better! It doesn’t mean it won’t change for the better, it doesn’t mean we should lose hope. It simply means that things change, and that’s ok. The world is God’s creation too, and with all that’s going on, He has still decided to give us purpose. So even during constant new tropical storms, illnesses, food shortages, trauma, death, combat, shutdowns, layoffs, evictions, and change, we still have a purpose to serve the Lord. God bless. ❤️
Often we are overwhelmed as humans. We become hooked to the fantasy and idol worshipping of perfection. The truth is we will never ever be perfect. Stop trying to be someone you’re not to fit a mold that is not what God wants for you. Social media doesn’t matter, popularity doesn’t matter, the things of this world do not matter, but Jesus does! In fact God is all that matters, He holds us together. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
I was quite upset as I had forgotten this moral truth today. I am not who anyone else says I am, including myself, I am a child of God therefore I am who He says I am! Thank you Jesus for all you do in Jesus name. Amen!
I often thought I was lonely because of the passing of my grandmother here on earth. The truth is I was lonely way before that. If you are not right with God you are always going to feel lonely even when you’re not alone. The truth is, loneliness and being alone can grow you closer to God. I am a witness to it. When I had no one I had God. That’s because you cannot trust in man. As much as we love our families, friends, the body of Christ, if we do not have God we will never be happy. The Lord is beyond faithful and He will give you what you need. Be patient and wait on Him. He hears you, you are never alone. 💕
Comparison will kill you if you let it.
We often say don’t compare yourself to others, but the truth is flesh desires it. Remember that you are a child of God. You were made in His image, set a part for His goodness. When we compare our lives to others we are doing our Spirit a disservice, telling our Spirit that God is not good enough and that His plans for us are unworthy. The truth is we all have a path made by the Lord, sometimes we fall off of it, but He allows us to get right back on it blessing us and leading the way. So, follow the path God has for you. Not the path you believe you desire, the path that others are on, or honestly the path you have created for yourself and your own expectations. Remember that only God can judge you, only God knows your fate, so follow the one who knows all and wants the best for you, our Father In Heaven. Accept Jesus and repent of your sins.
Prayer to be Saved: Dear Lord, I come to you right now before we start this prayer asking that you remove all unforgiveness in my heart for I surrender it all to you. God, I pray to you right now asking for the forgiveness of my sins. Lord, I have committed so many sins, experienced so much heartbreak, and have given birth to so much pain. I feel like a burden, Lord Jesus, but as I read your word I know that you see me as righteous through the eyes of Jesus. So I come to you right now, accepting Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior for by his stripes I am now healed. I ask that you protect me Father, heal me Father, and love me, Father, as only you can. Enter my heart, Oh God, and remove the sins of my past, make me new again Father for I repent of my sins and accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I am ready for a change and transformation in my life done by you Father. Protect me, Jesus Christ, for only you can heal, only you can save, and only you can be King, sitteth on the right hand of God, the Father Almighty. Thank you Lord for forgiveness, I am now clean and renewed in Jesus name. Amen.
God bless ❤️

As Christians we are supposed to love God, not deny God. We are to love others, not give up our beliefs in God to please others. The world may want you to convert to it’s beliefs but know that God is the only one who saves! Love others, yes, however do not conform to this world to please others or try to fit in. You were set apart.
My last semester of college, I struggled.
In fact my entire college experience felt like a struggle. Getting a degree is not easy. I felt overwhelmed constantly. I felt as though because I was getting this degree for God everything had to not just be right but perfect. Boy was I wrong! The truth is God does not expect us to be perfect, He desires us to be righteous through His Son, our Lord and Savior, Yeshua. Our Risen Messiah tells us that He came for those who know they are sinners, not those who believe they are already righteous. As a graduate I look back and I realize how the enemy use perfectionism as a tactic to make me miserable. I felt as if I had to take a certain amount of classes because I wasn’t working my junior and senior year, and that I had to get perfect or near perfect grades to impress others because I wasn’t working or living on campus. Woo! Let me tell you, living for others will get you no where. My degree was supposed to be for Christ yet instead of receiving it righteously by enjoying it, I desired to live for others opinions of me, often ones I made up on my own of what they thought, and my own vision, that I forgot about God’s vision for me. God desires me to be of joy, purity, and peace, and when you are living for others you joy is taken and you worry, your purity is taken because you stop living for God and begin living a perfectionist lifestyle that you can’t obtain, and your peace is gone as depression, anxiety, and fear set in because you cannot live up to these false standards you or other flesh had made up. It is not worth it. I am here to tell you to take it to the cross, hang it up, and follow Jesus! The Bible tells us to hang our iniquities at the cross! We are to crucify our past selves and RISE WITH JESUS CHRIST! Rise with the King of all Kings and live in His ones blessed children of God. Accept Jesus by repenting, believing, accepting, and living in Jesus Christ, He had already done the rest.
Enjoy your time with God.
Enjoy being happy.
Enjoy you singleness.
Enjoy your marriage.
