The world premiere of your story!!

image

How many of you have ever been apart of a play or a movie? In order for you to get into character, you had to prepare and maybe get some background knowledge about your character in order to become your new character. A lot of times it’s harder to relate with some characters than others. This ties into singing as well. Learning new songs or genres can be a bit challenging at first. The more you practice and study the material, it becomes like second nature. You can apply that to anything in your life because we are all faced with challenges and areas of growth.

As Christians, we are called live a life that should be a witness to others. Whether you think your life is worth sharing or not, our lives should be the greatest testimony of all times. If you think about where you have come from to this very moment, God has done some tremendous work in your life. If you are thinking “my life is a hot mess right now”, please don’t blame God as the cause of it all. However you choose to look at it, it is all for a greater purpose that God wants you to add to your testimony.

As 2015 comes to a roaring end… step out on your stage/set and show your world premiere of your life. I have invited you all to my World Premiere this year to the Life of CANDYCE D. I pray that you have been blessed in ways that I will never know. Most importantly I encourage you to keep working on your life story starring YOU!!! God isn’t finished working on us and has the perfect Love story written for each of us. I am full of joy just thinking about what God has in store for each of us.

In closing, my eyes are filling with tears just seeing how God has guided me to this very moment and answered my deep prayers about spreading His word to other countries.  My blog has been read in almost 30 different countries, 1,000’s+ of views and visitors just in the span of 6 months. I never imagined that happening. God had a greater plan than I did and had the perfect plan.

Jeremiah 29:11 MSG

I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out- plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.

I have never read the Message translation of this verse and I absolutely love it! I have prayed for everyone of you that are reading my blog before I thought of Sweet inspirations by CANDYCE!!! Keep God first and you will NEVER fail. If your 2015 wasn’t what you thought it should be, reflect and see where you can add more Jesus. Your riches and “luck” may not increase but I guarantee if you change your outlook on your situation, God will do the rest. It’s a team effort. GOOOOOOOOOO TEAM!!!! (I apologize my cheerleader came out LOL)

I L❤VE Y’ALL and may you have a BLESSED & HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!🎆🎇🎉🎉🎆🎇🎉🎉🎆🎇🎉🎉🎆🎇🎉🎉🎆🎇🎉🎉

SHARE YOUR TESTIMONY WITH OTHERS AND SHARE THIS BLOG ❤

In the presence of God!

1 John 1:9 But if we confess our sins, God will forgive us.We can trust God to do this. He always does what is right. He will make us clean from all wrong things we have done.

Confessing your sins is the only way that you will be in fellowship with God. When you approach God, you have to be clean from sins. Asking for forgiveness and confessing your sins gives you a pure heart and that’s what God wants from us. Repent of those sins and ask God to remove them from your life. God will give you the strength to do that and to recognize them as soon as it happens in order to give it to God. The desire to get rid of those strongholds in your life must come from a place of wanting to be pure and a spirit of wanting to be all that God has created you to be. He will guide you IF you allow Him to. Once those strongholds are broken, you will be able to see God CLEARLY!

Get rid of those weeds!

wpid-2015-08-06-14.31.08.jpg.jpeg

Jesus is speaking in John 15:16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit- fruit that will last-and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.

In order to be fruitful like God call us to be, we must get rid of those strongholds of sin so that God can use us. God and sin will never dwell in the same place. The only way for those strongholds to loosen its grip from you is to draw closer to GOD. Apply His word and stay in prayer. Switch your focus from self to God and I guarantee that you will start to experience God on a whole new level. Getting rid of those weeds means getting rid of those sins that are choking you and preventing you from producing healthy produce.

Watch GOD happen throughout this day!!! TIL NEXT TIME MY LOVES…

Let the past be the past… Easier said than done I know!

Hebrews 3:7-8  7 So as the Holy Spirit says: “today, if you hear his voice, 8 do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the wilderness.

The key to those verses is to harden not your heart like they did previously. A lot of times we allow past hurts, disappointments and pain to creep back up in our hearts. Please be advised that when such acts occur, your heart which by the way is the center of all thoughts, emotions and actions will lead you astray from God. We start to block out what God is trying to tell us because we think we know it all or how to protect ourselves better than God can. God wants your heart to be pure and seek after him constantly. Seeking Him will eliminate those thoughts and feelings that caused you pain. The more you consult God and seek Him, the easier it will become when your emotions try to get you all out of whack. Come to Him and be open to all that He is directing/telling you to do. That includes daily in taking of the Word of God and building your prayer life which will build a stronger relationship all together!!

So like the title says let the past be the past… easier said than done, simply means to turn to God when you feel your past is trying to creep back up. He is the only one that can help you with your struggles. It is easier said than done trust me but I know that God is holding my hand every step of the way along my journey. Please grab a hold of Gods hand! TIL NEXT TIME MY LOVES!!! GOD BLESS YOU

Who is this Candyce person?

Sweet Inspirations by Candyce

This is Me!!!!

Hey y’all heeeyyyyyyy! I know that I’m not the only person that knew that they were DEFINITELY different than others throughout their lives. Not a necessarily weirdo different but a special different that you really couldn’t explain or describe. The stories or moments I can recall, have definitely affirmed my uniqueness at a very young age. I can remember back from learning how to spell my first and middle name that I was not a “normal” child LOL! It wasn’t until I would say 2013 that I began to really come into my TRUE identity which explained my “different” title. Throughout my childhood, I was very well known and liked by many. I was this funny, caring, opinionated ball of spunk and energy. I didn’t really know too many other people with my personality which caused me to start to hide it and become embarrassed. In high school I was the JV and Varsity cheer captain, VP of Senior Women club, Homecoming and Prom Queen and extremely involved in school activities. I would say that those were the years that God really started showing me how different I was. On the back of my letterman I had my first name Candyce and underneath I had “Yes! I’m different”. And the going response was YES YOU ARE! Now, to some I was very weird and annoying or perceived as being fake because “no one has this much energy and smiles all the time“. Comments like that didn’t use to bother me in HS as much as they did once I got to college.

I wanted to “create” this new Candyce that doesn’t seem so “perfect and Ms. goodie goodie” which caused me to lose sight of who I was in God’s eyes! I would pick and choose when I wanted to bring the original “C.D” aka my first and middle initial out and with who I thought could handle me. I met a lot of people and began to find myself revisiting my original “C.D” ways then pulling back once I realized what was happening. So I became very active on campus but this time it was different. Yes I was still a fun, happy, smiley person but  I became an extremely guarded person as a result of the recreation process. For years I just kept her hidden which I’m sure you know what happens when you start hiding things… Things become buried deeper and deeper and you forget where they are or it takes forever and a day to “clean” it up etc. My walk with God became very surface like at times, which really shocked me because I grew up having a relationship with God which I thought was very strong. But that shows the more you hide, the more blinded you become. I could go on and on and on about the different things that I have gone through that brought me to this very moment. I wanted to give you a quick glance of who I am. So the purpose of this blog is to share God’s word with you mixed with Candyce 4.0 (new and improved). You will get to know that loving, funny, outgoing and opinionated Candyce very well, but most importantly… You will know GOD better! Whoop whoop *INSERT YOUR FAVORITE DANCE MOVE* I’m SOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED TO SHARE MY DEVOTIONALS AND WORDS FROM GOD. One part of my purpose is helping anyone that I can, that brings so much joy and contentment to me that only God can bring. Hope you share this with your peeps… TIL NEXT TIME MY LOVES!!!
