Psalm 56:11 FREE MIRACLES

A lot of my issues stem from trust problems. I can’t blame any one particular spot in my life, because my gullibility was taken advantage of frequently. I let these processes dull my senses, I made excuses to not confront feelings or hurt or betrayal. In hindsight I think I believed “If I convince my self that I am the negative people say, it can no longer hurt me.”

It’s really, really hard to get back up if you let everyone label you. You know who you are,an if you are not bonded by a God by religion, think back on childhood. Child like faith that you maybe had in an idol, or sport or person, GIVE IT BACK TO YOURSELF. As much as I am compelled to ask you, find a good nondenominational church, I am just as much compelled to ask you to believe in LIFE.

 

When I let go of stigma, I allowed myself to love and trust again. I am with my soul mate because I took back and owned my faith in love.

Anyone can say whatever they want about you, but YOU WAKE UP TO YOU daily! You have a heart that defies gravity. The very act of your heartbeat is amazing. You are amazing!
If you’re selfish, or free lover! If you’re a grade A student or a hard worker! If you’re inventive or you go with the flow!

Each an every person is so unique and getting up every day, is a little gift you give yourself.
Don’t give your gift away, look at yourself, and say
HELLO Miracle!”

Truth is

Tomorrow I go to get blood drawn to see what’s going on with my thyroid an if I am considered diabetic. I pray and hope that’s not the case, but I also know over the years I should have paid attention to health. We get wrapped up in trying to keep up with others we forget to keep ourselves whole.

I’ve lost my mind and my muchness as the mad hatter would say. Trying to give my son a “family” make sure he wasn’t in a bad public education setting and trying to keep up with what people said “I should provide for him as a parent.”
Forgetting to keep in mind my health has been pretty close to horrible after my cancer diagnosis. Surgeries and hospital visits…

I was so wrapped up in my son doing activities and keeping up with other people’s parenting. I have completely forgotten that he needs and wants me around. That he is happy with how his life is and he hates that I get upset when someone or something makes me feel bad as a parent.

I am going to be more proactive this year in preventive care. I may go back to an obgyn  (not sure I’m ready for that yet) . I know I need to be there for him, because I love him, and he’s my soul purpose to not giving up.

Forget keeping up with the Jones, I need to keep up with me and mine.

2. I was made to believe in my abilities thru God. I should pray more

How’s shaping your year? Tell me about it.

Fasting 5 & six-Faith or lack there of

Sometimes when faced with life’s challenges I think we stop midway and say, “God I can’t.”
    He knows these struggles, which is the reason why God said to Moses in Ezekiel,  “Tell them I AM sent you.” Exodus 3:14
    When Moses told God he alone wouldn’t be enough. Moses had so much going for him, in essence he was what we would call a powerful leader. He too, even felt down an out about his character.

   It takes enormous faith for some of us to get out of bed in the morning. To ignore all the Can’t, Couldn’t and Won’t. It’s good to look in our bibles and remind ourselves of God’s promises.
Isaiah 41:10

Fasting Day 3 Growth

I am hoping to  make a life in 2016 that I don’t want to vacation from. These plans including road trips,camping, more dog sits and all around getting to know each other better. People in families grow and change. Our wants and dreams are different. I think together doing things we’ve never done before will be a great experience.
     
       Fasting until 1 has been different. I pick the time as far as I can go that day with my stomach condition. I’m praying for guidance on what I am called to do. Everything tastes different. Always when I fast when I have something to eat, I am bodily reminded to be grateful. Many go without food or water to drink an I am reminded to not buy that candy bar or soda because I can’t have it. Many can’t have it any day and would rather replace it with something their whole family can have. I plan to give more this year.

I hope you all have a new year where some mornings you can look like this…

Hush it, Not much for prosperity gospel

I was listening to Joyce Myers an while I don’t agree with everything she says,she said something very profound. My husband an I have always had issues with people who had no problem speaking on what we didn’t do good enough(Now or in the past), or what we did wrong. We have great plans for 2016 and if it’s in God’s  will we pray our small family has freedom.

   I don’t expect things to be positive and flowers all the time. I am all for constructive criticism and HELPING someone move past hang ups that no longer exist or are dying. I will no longer accept any negative things spoken into my life or the ones I love. If you don’t have something nice to say, God bless it if it comes out of your mouth because you better be willing to help change it.

    Joyce said in her sermon
“Well God I stopped being negative and nothing good has rewarded it.” And she looked into the Word of God and felt his response was
“It doesn’t do any good just to Shut Up, you got to start saying The Right Things.”

My 2016 isn’t full of resolutions, it’s full of intent.

I pray and hope everyone has a blessed and Safe New Years Eve. Hope to see you flourish in 2016.

Day of Give(up something)23

Everyone has bad habits. From picking at nails, pulling on hair, to overly washing our hands. I guess I can say I’ve been guilty of all these things. I’ve also had bad habits that cost me a great deal of money and time. When I saw I was missing valuable time because of this, I gifted myself,giving up.

Sometimes I have to ask myself, “Do I need this?” Or “Does ____ help me grow?” Often if the answer is no, I know I need to cut it out. ✂

Having free time with family and being mission minded with them, is way more valuable than my bad habits ever were.

What are your bad habits? What helps you stop them? Take time to love yourself and say
“Not today.”

Day of Give 20

A friend of mine is a wonderful teacher. I met her at my retail job and her passion for teaching showed more than anything. I admire her love for kids. I wish she could adopt because I think she’ll be awesome mom. I am sure she is a mom to some of the people she teaches.

I wanted to share her Go Fund Me page. I know her heart is with her students.
Lets help end student homelessness. help Sam’s kids

Month of Give 9&10-Keeping Warm

A lot of us collect warm ware. I have had a lot of jackets, vests an sweater thingies that just didn’t fit anymore. A lot of places have an abundance of homeless youth and young adults who are not only freezing, but struggling with their confidence.

   Collect some of your NICE jackets an ask yourself, “Do I need this more then this kid does?” If the answer is “no…” Go get to know the local homeless kids and teens. I promise you their stories are just as interesting as the park bench man.
If one family in every 3 churches adopted a foster child, there would be no more “family searching” teens. Even if you can’t adopt, be a positive force in someone’s life. Pray and think about the kids who ARE the future right now.

Month of Give Day Seven and Eight

I asked a former co-worker if she could really give to a local charity, who would she give to?
She told me about the Breast Cancer Survivors network in Fayetteville, GA. She had a daughter fight the good fight and said they were great help.
What reproductive cancers do to some womens’ confidence can be traumatic. I have dealt with my own regrets and sadness regarding not being able to have anymore children. Some women will struggle with not being able to breast feed or feel sexy in old dresses.

I am all about women feeling comfortable in their own skin.
If you’d like to donate
GIVE HERE

For day eight, I ask you to compliment a woman you know. Tell her how she greatly affects your life and how much you love her presence. Let her know she doesn’t have to do anything, just be. I am sure that blessing, will give to you as well.
