Kissing my 20’s Goodbye………….

image
Day 1: This is my very last day of being in my 20’s. Let me tell you how many emotions I experienced just that day alone. I started reflecting during my Daddy-Daughter time aka my quiet time with God like I normally do. But for some reason a huge feeling of gratitude and love was showered on me at once by God during this time. I could not take it all and that caused me to go into an uncontrollable crying and expression of how thankful I am to God for all of these years and all that He has done for me. My heart was so full of joy and love. All of His promises that He has promised me are being revealed and coming true. When you leave your life in God’s hands, He will never lead you astray. No my life is not perfect by any means but I stand confidently next to him and I know that He will keep all of His promises. I have to do my part and keep a relationship with Him at all times and live out my purpose.

So that day I had some sweet kiddos that I was able to speak life into lives. I just thank God for using me where I am and all that I’ve gone through to be able to show who God is to others. I encourage you to do the same, allow God to use your mess to be your message. Someone needs you!!!

My workout session was a good one, I enjoyed typing in 29 for the last time LoL!!!

THE BIG 3-0 DAY….
I woke up again very emotional and kind of worried to be honest. I spent my Daddy-Daughter time all in tears of joy. I don’t think I kept from crying longer than a minute. I was so overwhelmed by His love and from the love of others. You never know the impact you have on the people around you. But oh did I find out soon! One of my dear friends posted a video for me on FB and had me boo hooing after I thought I collected myself. God has a way of giving you what you need right when you need it or when you don’t think about it. All of the warm wishes, collages and phone callsΒ warmed my heart. At that point I didn’t know what I was going to do other than run I few errands andΒ  get ready for a night with my girls. My dearest sister-friend that I’ve known basically my whole life, surprised me and took off from work and we spent the day together and did some shopping and chatting. I truly thank God for her and our relationship that we have that continues to grow in God. AND to top it off my dear friend that mentioned before, had lunch with us and we had a wonderful time together. I am truly blessed with some wonderful prayers answered friends. We laughed so much and shared stories and bonded together. New friendships were formed! So after we left eating, we got ready for the night. I wanted to do something different for my birthday so I decided to go to a food truck event at the race track πŸ‡πŸ‡πŸπŸ. I have never been to a race before and had no idea what to do! I had THE best time ever!!! We had a BLAST and shared sooooooooooo much laughter with each other and people around us.

I wasn’t readyyyyy!!!

One of my favorite comedians is Kevin Hart. He has a lot of funny sayings and this one is one of my faves. Well anyways I thought that it would be perfect with this post because I definitely WAS NOT ready for love and Godly relationships.

Song of Solomon 2:7Β (MSG) Oh, let me warnΒ you, sisters in Jerusalem, by the gazelles, yes, byΒ all the wild deer: Don’t excite love, don’t stir it up, until the time is ripe-and you’re ready.

As I read this scriptureΒ last week for a daily devotional, it hit me like a ton a bricks because I never understood why I would never be fully open and vulnerable while dating and vice versa. There seemed to be a wall up on both sides and an emptiness that would never become filled. My understanding of what true love was ❀️ and how to love was not something that I was really taught in details growing up. It was something that I saw on some occasions and mimicked but did not truly grasp it. I also did not love myself in the manner that God wanted me to and that really led to so many heartaches and disappointments. I got fed up with all of the of the dead end relationships and emptiness. Once I started desiring more of God by studying His word and understanding whatΒ love looks like, my heart began to soften up and began to be healed. My heart had to become broken in order for my transformation to begin. This was not a quick fix healing process because I was carrying sooooooo much baggage and didn’t even realize it. It’s taken YEARS to get to the point that I am at now. The thoughts about my past hurts don’t shake my emotions and feelings up like they did before. Understanding and being obedient to God’s word will help you make better decisions and will lead you down the right path.

Here are some tips to become open to God’s L❀️ VE:

SPEND TIME IN PRAYER THROUGHOUT YOUR DAY. βŒ›β° πŸ™

START A JOURNAL AND JUST SHARE YOUR FEELINGS AND THOUGHTS. πŸ“–βœ’

SPEND TIME OUTSIDE LOOKING AT ALL OF GOD’S CREATIONS AND HOW HE PROVIDES FOR ALL CREATION. πŸŒžβ›…πŸŒΉπŸŒ»πŸ’ 🐢

SLOW YOUR LIFE DOWN & BE STILL. πŸ›€πŸ“΅

PRAY FOR SIGNS MEANING PRAY THAT GOD WILL SHOW YOU WHAT YOU’VE BEEN PRAYING FOR. πŸ™

LISTEN TO OTHERS. GOD USES OTHERS TO HELP US OR SEND COMFIRMATION.πŸ‘‚

TALK TO GOD AND SHARE YOUR HEART ❀️

APPLY WHAT YOU’VE READ AND LIVE IT OUT AND WATCH THE TRANSFORMATION OCCUR IN YOUR LIFE. πŸ‘€

SING THE SONG JESUS LOVES ME 🎀🎢🎢🎡🎡

Now back to the title I wasn’t readyyyy, God revealed to me that I was in no shape or fashion to be in a healthy loving Godly relationship before. I thank God for the time that He has given me to get my heart right and so I can have healthy relationships with everyone (friendships, church family, mentee’s, family etc.) I can tell a major difference in all of my relationships all due to God working in my life and changing my heart. As messed up as my “love” life was, God has used it to be able to share it with you guys to help you out whether you’re married or single. If you’re not healing from your past, you will continue to pour your junk into your new relationships. Take my advice andΒ DON’T do it, it hurts the other person in the end and prolongs your healing and growth process! Be encouraged and continue to seek God in all that you do!Β  God will reveal when you are healed. If you don’t wait on Him more heartache and being outside of His plan for your life will continue to be the driving source of your self destructive life. It’s best to know if you are READYYYY by doing a heart check with God!

GOD TOOK MY πŸ’” BROKENNESS AND MADE ME πŸ’“ WHOLE!!!
