Can I be honest with you for a minute? ⠀ ⠀ It’s so easy to get caught up in your emotions. I’ve been struggling with doubt lately. You see if you know me, my relationship with JESUS means everything to me. Lately, my circumstances have been testing my faith big time. I feel like I’m … Continue reading Circumstances Don’t Define You
Wow, I can't believe it's March already! You've probably been wondering where I've been. It's been two weeks since I last posted but a lot has been going on in those two weeks for sure. If you've learned anything about me from reading this blog, following me on social media, or know me personally you will know I love pouring into others and encouraging them. Well, the truth is if I am completely honest I sorta have been ignoring myself. It is so much easier to take care of others than yourself. The thing is I am in a season where I feel like I am empty or dried up. I keep pouring out and out but in reality, I need to be filled up and poured into myself. Yes, I have a mentor. Yes, I go to church. Yes, I have a prayer life. Yes, I spend time in worship. Yes, I have friends that encourage me. But even with that, I have been feeling disconnected. I want to really dig into my Bible and grow closer to God.
The battle is not yours but God!!!! The enemy will try to sneak up on the blind side. Spiritual warfare is real my friends! I’m living in the middle of it right now. You see when you are trying to do GOD’S work you are inevitably going to be attacked by the enemy. When I chose to live my life for Jesus and be in ministry I knew all the risks I would face. I knew that the enemy would be after me. ⠀ I knew people would hate me.⠀ I knew this life would be hard.⠀ I knew I needed to be on guard. You see following Jesus is hard but totally worth it. You just need to press into Him and stay grounded in the WORD so that you are ready to stand up to this battle.
2018 NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER! This past Thursday was the day to observed with others a time to pray. Even though it's a recognized day that doesn't mean we shouldn't be praying every day. • I believe that prayer is an important part of life. • I believe that we should pray no matter what. • I believe that no prayers are too much for God. • I believe God wants to hear from you. As I reflected and thought about National Day of Prayer this year, it means more to me than before. From the beginning of the year, I’ve said that I want to have a more intentional prayer life. It's important to me to have meaningful and deep conversations with God.
Last weeks blog post I was very transparent with you all. I must say it was way out of my comfort zone. I'm always afraid of what people think and fear is something I struggle with. I've always been one who struggled a lot with all kinds of different fears. Fear of the unknown. Fear of the past. Fear of what people would think, etc. There's so much that is happening in the world right now that the news is full of tragic events. From stories of school shootings to police officers killed and all this violence, it makes one fearful for their lives.
