This little light of mine….. Part II

Last night as I’m sitting at the stop light waiting for it to change, I was confused by all of the green lights that were shining when my light turned green. The confusion moment that I experienced showed me that even though light was present, it caused confusion to me because I didn’t process the timing of them being synced. At times in our lives, yes our lights are shining but they are off synced with God’s plan and purpose for us. Take time to get back in sync with God and make sure the light is shining with His control panel. I’m not saying that it’s necessarily a bad thing to have the light out of sync because it should caused you to pause and allow that conviction to do its job. Having those convictions were created to steer us back to our Father. Admit that getting out of sync with God caused you to be confused and that you are going to get back on track with him. Another thing that God revealed to me about all of those green lights that I experienced last night, was Him giving me the green light to keep going pursing my dreams and that He has already gone ahead of me to make that happen. I invite you to truly seek God’s will for your life and allow Him to speak to you. It’s all about building that intimacy with Him. His desires will become your desires if you fully let Him in. Invite Him in so He can unpack a become a permanent resident.

SPOTLIGHT VERSE:

But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin 1 John1:7

Have you ever wondered why when you meet or are around someone who is full of joy, causes you to feel extremely comfortable around them and happy? That person or persons are living in the light of Christ. The “comfortable” feeling  that they are experiencing is God’s light. When I was living in darkness, I didn’t appreciate and fully understand the meaning of the light. That caused me to try and avoid the light or most times I would just tolerate it and put my shades on to block it out as long as I could. I pray that you understand what I was saying. Are you wearing your sun shades right now or in constant search of some sort of shade? I’m here to tell you that being in the presence of the light and walking in the light is the way that God created us. He created us to be dependent on it and without it, unfortunately we will never live a fruitful purposeful life that He designed us to experience. I don’t know about you, but I want to experience all of the blessings that God has for me on this earth. It’s the only way to live! So be encouraged my friend…It’s not too late to turn towards the light and take off those sun shades.

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 calls warmed my heart. At that point I didn’t know what I was going to do other than run I few errands and  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 🏇🏇🏁🏁. 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.

Kissing my 20’s Goodbye……….

Day 6: Started off a little rough which I found out why later on that day. This picture is basically how I spent my whole Saturday at a Tapioca shop. My name was Kenda for the day LOL! I told her my name and I guess she couldn’t spell it but I thought that was too cute! I had a lot of work and things to catch up on. For some reason, I had been feeling less motivated. I was determined to get my fire burning again 🔥 but most importantly ask God why I was feeling this way. OHHHHHHHHH did he show me!!! I just started reading the book Fervent by Priscilla Shirer and it is definitely not a book for a person that is not willing to truly grow their prayer life with God and fight against the schemes of the enemy. So after I finished completing one assignment, I said to myself “oh it’s on sister, let’s do this”. But little did I know that it was EXACTLY the answer to my mysterious passion/drive flame potential burnout. I thought that I had a pretty strong prayer life and I still do but this book has given me more strategies to defeat those moments from the enemy that come up like losing focus and when you lose your passion.

Here is the book and I’ve been journaling for a long time so this is my newest prayer journal along with this amazing book!!! Please go get it and read if you are tired of the enemy being victorious in your life. So after reading the first chapter I realized why my motivation was dim. The attacks that the enemy has designed are so strategic and subtle and if we aren’t made aware of them, we will become defeated by the enemy. I am loving this point of my life and I am so excited about what God is bringing me into. I’m even more thrilled to able to share it with you and bring you along this journey to encourage you to make God the focus of your life.

Passion is the fuel in the engine of your purpose- Priscilla Shirer

If you have lost your excitement and drive for living out your purpose that God created you for, tap back into your main source… God!

Day 5: Family day!!! Where do I begin? Well I’ll start with understanding the true blessing that God gives us with our families. It makes my heart ❤️❤️ smile thinking about all of them. No we are not perfect by any means but love each other dearly. My brother in law was affirmed as Elder at his church and we came to support him. It is such a phenomenal feeling when you can give to others and how God equips you to be able to give without wanting anything in return. I loved being able to see all of my old church family and hugging them. Oh how I miss them and I am even more thankful to hear such encouraging words and love from them. My heart was full yesterday. As you can tell in the picture from above my niece had a volleyball tournament and they won every single game they played the whole weekend! I’m a proud auntie 🙂 of all of my babies.

Here is my big baby that is so excited to FINALLY be taller than me!! Sunday was a great day!!!

STAY TUNED…

Stay in the will of God

image

Romans 8:26-28 are the perfect explanations on what being filled with the Holy Spirit looks like. Even when we don’t know what to say, the Spirit intercedes on our behalf. Meaning all of the feelings and hurts that we experience are interpreted to God and in return God grants us His comfort and unfailing love. Have you ever been so hurt and let down that it hurt you to your core? Personal experiences like that were hard to go through all on my own. I remember one particular situation that I faced, I was so full of emotions and didn’t know how to express my feelings, I said a quick prayer “Jesus I need you” and it was like a sense of so much comfort and love that calmed my tears and hurt in the very moment. That was the Holy Spirit working on my behalf to stay close to God during my darkest and lowest times.

When you are in sync with the Spirit, you have to be in fellowship (confessed sins) I John 1:9. Honestly if you ask me having the Trinity (God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit) apart of your life is the best feeling ever!! They all work as one and the purpose is to carry out the will of God. What do you think the will of God is? Think about that for a few minutes and are you living it out?

Being in the will of God: this is just a very short list of what being in the will of God looks like

  • Produces peace even when the world/man says you should be doing more or something else with your time.
  • Shows the world that anything is possible through Christ.
  • Provides a comfort that no man could ever provide
  • Fills voids that no man can fill.
  • Creates a way out of no way.
  • Blesses your life and protects you from the enemy.
  • Allows you to experience the joy only God can give.
  • Guides you while walking in your purpose on Earth
  • ETERNAL LIFE WITH HIM

Be encouraged and stay in His will for your life so that you can experience God on a whole other level! Trust me when I tell you that NOTHING and I repeat NOTHING is worth jeopardizing walking in your purpose. So whatever sin(s) is/are holding you back, get healing from God. God did not send His son to be used for our continual sins that we don’t want to give up. He sent him to help us get right and He does not grant us grace so that we can continue to enjoy our sins. At some point there has to be a feeling of remorse for walking wayward. I know that it will take some time but start by crying out to God to help break those stronghold chains that are holding you up from growing spiritually and walking in your purpose.

I am very passionate about God and helping others grow in Him! I am nowhere near perfect by any means and I am still growing. I have experienced deliverance from strongholds so I know that it is possible and I encourage you to reach out to our Father for help. LOVE YOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUU
😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘

TIL NEXT TIME MY LOVES!!!!!!!!!
